Chapter 84 Extra: I am not a mob. Anyone can be the star! ～Operation G Disappearance
“She looks so cute today~” (Yuki)
“Hihi…… belly fat. But I think she might be too fat these days.……” (Shakado)
“What are you doing with that suspicious smile on your face?” (Miho)
While I was secretly having fun with Shakado in the corner of the classroom, a faceful of hillbillies came over to us. For those of us who live in the dark and are nocturnal, they are like natural enemies.
“Awawawa! I-I was just watching Rumi-chan……” (Shakado)
Look, look. Totally, this is why bright people are ……. I feel sorry for her, so I’m going to give her a helping hand.
“Look. It’s Rumi-chan, the lacertid. She’s so cute!” (Yuki)
“Lacertid…… you mean a lizard?” (Miho)
“She’s a lacertid!” (Yuki)
There is no doubt that they are members of the same order of scales, but Japanese lizards and Japanese lacertids are two different species. Shakado started keeping lacertids about two months ago. She found it by chance and grabbed it impulsively.
Shakado looks like a small animal, but she is a very self-centered person. No, she may be the most self-centered person in this class. It is said that she sets traps and goes out alone in the middle of the night to pick up beetles. Shakado is an experienced hunter. Beetles and stag beetles are nocturnal, so it can’t be helped, but it must be hard for her parents to worry about her.
Sure enough, Mama Shakado was lamenting the situation and asked me if I would accompany her on her next hunting trip. I don’t mind, but it is difficult to keep them at home. After all, it’s a pity that the Kokonoe family can’t afford to keep any other pets since they have me as their pet.
“Hee. She’s cuter than you’d think when you look at her this way. I guess she is a female, given her name?” (Yuki)
“Rumi-chan’s tail, because it’s so slender…….” (Miho)
“She’s so cute.” (Yuki)
“Is that all you can say?” (Miho)
You can tell the sex of a male and female lacertid by the base of their tails. Without a doubt, Rumi-chan is a female. She is basking in the sun on a climbing tree. The breeding case is covered with soil and artificial water plants, and there are no natural enemies, so it may be an ideal slow-living space. While Shakado was watching a video showing a male and female lacertid.
Hinagi and Mineda came up to us.
“Yukito, what are you doing?” (Hinagi)
“Oh, that is Anya-chan’s pet, isn’t it?” (Mineda)
Shakado’s love of reptiles is well known, but naturally there are those who are not so fond of them. Mineda doesn’t mind them at all, but Elizabeth, on the other hand, seems to have a bad reaction to them. This is just the way it is. Strangely enough, there are many people who could touch insects when they were children, but as they grow older, they can no longer tolerate them at all. Physiological aversion may be such a thing.
“Hey, hey, Anya-chan. We have a cat, is it okay to have a reptile?” (Mineda)
“You might want to stop ……. You might be shocked if they get eaten”. (Shakado)
“As I thought, it’s no good.” (Mineda)
“They are cute, but I wonder if Hinagi are okay with them.” (Yuki)
Hinagi and Mineda are curious, but if Mineda has a cat, let alone Hinagi, it is more difficult to keep a reptile. Cats are predators. They should be quarantined or the reptiles should never be taken out of their cases.
“I thought you were an animal lover, Hina-chan?” (Mineda)
“Yes, but I am not sure about reptiles though.”(Hinagi)
Hinagi giggles in embarrassment. Thinking back, Hinagi used to say she wanted to get a dog. I don’t know about it now, but I wonder if Hinagi doesn’t like lacertids either. They are so cute…….
“Cute, isn’t it?” (Yuki)
“Anya-chan, what kind of food do lacertids eat?” (Mineda)
“Well, it’s–” (Shakado)
Suddenly, a scream echoed through the classroom. The owner of the scream, Elizabeth, backed away with a look of horror on her face.
“Uwaaaaaa! Yuki, Yuki, help me!” (Shiori)
Suddenly, Shiori, who had escaped, tightened her hold on me, and as I looked around, I saw that everyone in the classroom was evacuating to avoid a certain spot. The boys were all turning pale.
“Oi, what’s going on? What in the world–” (Miho)
“Miho, look! Yuki? What’s wrong, Yuki?” (Shiori)
“Shiorin, I’m afraid Kokonoe-chan is in more danger than you.” (Mineda)
“I-I’m sorry!” (Shiori)
“….. I thought I was going to get all busted up. So what’s this all of a sudden?” (Yuki)
“No, Yukito. That thing is too much even for me.” (Hinagi)
“Like I said what—–” (Yuki)
The gaze catches sight of it. It is G, the natural enemy of humankind, a shiny black being. It is said that there are only a few people who can stand up to G. In fact, my mother and sister are extremely bad at it. [TL: G (Gokiburi) = cockroach]
They are often forced to cope with its speed, and above all, there are no powerful weapons, insecticides, or newspapers available in this place that can fight it. It was too reckless an opponent to challenge.
“W-what’s going on….? Hihi….What does G mean?” (Shakado)
Shakado was approaching G.
She simply grabbed it with her hand and tossed it out of the window.
“……G has been caught easily if you reach out toward the direction where they walk. It might have germs on it, so I’m going to go wash it off.” (Shakado)
Shakado dutifully left the classroom.
“Well, sometimes reptiles eat edible Gs like crickets and red loaches.” (???)
“I never thought Shakado would save me.……” (???)
“Anya-chan is amazing!” (Mineda)
G can only move forward. In other words, to exterminate Gs, one should target the forward direction where Gs feel danger and advance, but that does not mean that it is impossible for ordinary people to directly grab them and litter them.
“Huh……, what’s going on guys?” (Shakado)
Shakado, who has returned, is surprised by the commotion in the classroom.
“The hero returned…….” (Yuki)
“Thank you, Anya-chan! I’ll buy you juice.” (Mineda)
“Eh, eeh, hihi ……EEEEEEEHHHHH?!???” (Shakado)
In a classroom filled with cheers and applause, I realize.
Everyone is good at something. Everyone can play a leading role. That’s what I learned today.
