[I know everything. Rinto Kirishima, Rena Saito. The time for your judgment has come.]
I looked up from my seat at the back of the room, shocked that Taiga had not arrived, and saw that it was written in large letters on the blackboard.
Who is it? You know who it is? If so, why didn’t you tell me until now? But if it’s true, then….
Taiga’s false accusation might be cleared.
I have many doubts, but I still have a certain hope in my heart. Who in the world did this? I look around with a furtive glance. But I don’t see anyone who looks like them.
Amidst the crowd of classmates and onlookers from other classes, one of them shouted, “They’re here”
Everyone looked to see Rinto Kirishima and Rena Saito. They entered the classroom to see what was going on and looked at the blackboard at the same time.
“Oi! Look at this! What in the world is going on?!”
“What does it mean by “the hour of judgment”!?”
Everyone asks them at once, and while the blood drains from the face of the lying, disgusting woman, Rinto keeps his composure.
“What is it? It’s just someone’s prank, right? Where is the person who actually wrote this? You’re making too much noise without any proof.”
As Rinto said this, I heard a rattling sound coming from behind me.
I was at the very back and there was no sign of anyone behind me. As soon as I realized this, another fear struck me.
I fearfully turned around and saw a cute little girl coming out of the cleaning tool closet. Her head was covered with dust.
The girl was even shorter than me, and combined with her young face, she looked about the age of an upper elementary school student.
But I know this girl. She is Hiragi Momoka, a first-year high school student and a junior in the tennis club. We have been friends since junior high school, and I love this girl because she is just so adorable.
Why are you here, Momoka? But it was me, after all…? Her voice was so loud that I couldn’t imagine it coming from her normal voice.
Before I could open my mouth, Momoka handed me a note.
“Oi, oi, why is an elementary school student coming out of the cleaning supplies closet?”
“But she’s so cute~! Someone’s little sister! This is so bad!”
Momoka-chan’s face turned bright red.
Momoka is a very quiet and shy girl who does not like to be the center of attention or talk to anyone.
It took me a long time to get to know her as well as I do now. By the way, Momoka hates to be treated like a child, especially like an elementary student are not allowed.
Normally, she would get angry and go away when she is treated like an elementary student, but when she says this to me, she goes out in front of everyone.
“Eh? What? I’m supposed to read this?”
I asked her in confusion, and she nodded her head as if it was a matter of course.
I asked her puzzled, and she nodded her head. She hates public appearances.
“Uhm……I’m Momoka Hiiragi, a freshman and a junior of Mio Sakuragi. I will now tell the truth to everyone here. You have all been deceived by Rinto Kirishima and Rena Saito there. I watched their cunning tricks all the way from the cleaning supplies closet. Yagami-senpai was set up by those two! I repeat. Don’t be deceived, all of you! Yagami-senpai is innocent! The real criminals are Rinto Kirishima and Rena Saito, those two! I have recorded everything! I have solid proof right here!!!!”
At the same time as I said my last words, Momoka held her phone up high in her trembling hands for all to see.
Momoka-chan, who was probably very embarrassed, turned her face red to the point of blushing and was out of breath.
I was more embarrassed than she was, but now was not the time for such jokes. I already know that Rena Saito is a liar.
But what Rinto? Does that mean Rinto set up Taiga?
“I thought a farce would start at a time like this, but it seems that’s not the case.”
“Rinto and Rena? What in the world for? But she has proof…””
I look at the two people who have been named as the criminals while everyone is upset. The woman’s face is pale, and Rinto is trying to look calm, but he looks somewhat worried.
“Everyone…….! Listen to this!”
“Wait! Wait…! Wait!”
Rena Saito, who had been silent until now, raised her voice, but it was too late.
Perhaps to the best of her ability, Momoka’s voice was shaken out of her and the recording was played back loudly in front of everyone.
[I’m going to check, okay? You first call Taiga a criminal tomorrow and make a fuss about being attacked to get attention. Taiga will surely deny it and say he can tell by looking at his phone, so I’ll lead the president to confirm it.]
[I can set it up that I was a lover with Taiga, right? I’m a poor woman who was dumped and then almost assaulted as a convenient woman…is that right?]
[Yeah. That’s correct. The President is not likely to be tolerant and will not check the time when the picture was taken. It’s an image that she would normally be uncomfortable looking at. And she has a strong sense of justice and will not lie. I’m sorry to say this, but she’s perfect for us to use. Okay, now let’s take the shot, shall we?]
Then came the audio that everyone could hear that a woman was being attacked. Rena Saito desperately tried to stop the playback, but was immediately seized by her classmates, and everyone listened quietly to the playback of the recording without a word from any of them.
[That was a great performance, Rena. But are you sure about this? If they find out, it’s the end for both of us. Besides, you were friends with Taiga, weren’t you? If you’re going to turn back, now’s the time to do it, okay?”
[…….Don’t say anything about that in the future, Rinto. I care more about you. I decided to do whatever you want to do. Is it really up to you?]
“I’m prepared. My business is done. Let’s get out of here quickly.』
After that, the sound was cut off when I couldn’t hear their footsteps anymore.
No doubt about it…. This is the voice of Rinto and Rena Saito.
