TL: Sponsored chapter. And I want to say something first. Tonagi Suzurikawa’s name is Hinagi Suzurikawa and Miho Kouki is Kouki (First name) Miho (last name). I made a mistake when I started translating novels. I have updated it all my previous chapters.
Let me put it this way, I’m currently suspended from school.
However, the situation is a little more complicated. To be precise, I’m grounded, and if you’re asking me what the difference is between that and a suspension, there is no difference, but if I were to put it simply, it would be a temporary suspension.
When my sister heard about the punishment, she was very upset. At home, she was even more upset. When my mother tried to ask me to confirm the truth, my sister said, “Why can’t you believe him?” She cried and wouldn’t let me go. So I ended up sleeping with her again. Lately, I haven’t been sleeping in my own room much. Am I a baby or something?
However, this is just a cool breeze for me, whose mental strength is stronger than molybdenum steel. I’m so used to this kind of thing that I don’t need to worry about being suspended from school, but the aftermath of the ruckus was spreading more to the people around me than to me.
And now, all I had to think about was myself. I’m crazy. I’m insane. My mentality is too strong. I don’t feel anything and I don’t get hurt . But is that really possible? I’ve lost too much. In exchange, I felt like I had this strength that I didn’t need. But when did I become like this?
If you say I’m grounded, then you’re right. I’ll use this time to look for clues that will help me find myself. I’m sure that’s the process I need to go through to fix my brokenself.
But still, it’s funny that I am suspended from school.
I’d like to know why I am suspended more than anything else.
It all started a few days ago. There was a rumor going around the school.
Yukito Kokonoe is threatening a senpai to have a physical relationship with him.
“What do you mean? Explain it to me!” (Yuri)
“Yukito would never do that!” (Hinagi)
“That’s what I think too!” (Shiori)
“If I don’t get a satisfactory answer, I’ll report you to the appropriate authorities.” (Keido)
“That won’t work, Keido. Please calm down.” (Fujishiro)
“That is not going to happen!” (Keido)
The principal’s office. Some students are storming the principal and Sayuri Fujishiro. Yukito Kokonoe has been suspended from school. However, the punishment was too vague to be called a suspension. Because no proof was found.
The first thing to do was to confirm the truth of the rumor. Yukito Kokonoe easily complied with the call and was interviewed, and as requested, he handed over his smartphone without showing any resistance. He revealed his call history, message transmission records, and even image folders without hiding anything. There was only family correspondence, and nothing in the picture folder. The message app was left unread. That was unusual, but of course, no evidence or traces of anything could be found.
“Look. This is Yukito’s room. There’s no way he would do something like that!” (Yuri)
Yuri showed him a picture of Yukito’s room that she had taken with her smartphone.
“Bakana……, you’re saying …… that is Yukito’s Kokonoe’s room? What on earth?” (Principal)
“You’re lying? …… Yukito sleeps there? But that’s—!” (Hinagi)
“I’ve never seen Yuki’s room before. But something like this …….” (Shiori)
They were all in shock at the photo. Some of them had tears in their eyes. There was nothing in the room. No, there was a desk, a closet, and a bed, so it was not completely empty. However, there was nothing there to prove that someone lived there as an individual. A room is a place where one’s personality comes out. It would be strange if the room didn’t reflect the personality of the person living there in some way, whether it was a poster of their favorite artist, a comic book, or a video game.
However, the room was almost empty. The white walls were dazzling, just like a hospital. It was an empty space where nothing existed to reflect the personality of Yukito Kokonoe. That was Yukito Kokonoe’s room.
“I am sure that he was ready to disappear at any time, ready to erase his existence. Why are you trying to hurt him again when he might have finally gotten a little better! That’s enough!” (Yuri)
Yuri was angry, and Suzurikawa and Kamishiro felt the same way. They were almost overwhelmed with anxiety, wondering what would happen if Yukito broke down again, and why this always happened.
“Why did you decide to punish him without enough evidence! This is unacceptable!” (Keido)
“Calm down, Keido! We haven’t officially decided to suspend him from school.” (Principal)
“You can’t use that excuse! Yukito Kokonoe has been placed under suspension!” (Keido)
“We can’t afford not to do something about it…….” (Principal)
“After this rumor started to circulate, I received a call from Tojo-san, a prefectural councilor. He was very upset that there was such a student at his daughter’s school.” (Principal)
“That’s why you got rid of him without any proof?” (Shiori)
“You are just stalling. During this time, I’ll prove Yukito’s Kokonoe’s innocence.” (Keido)
“Tojo-sensei called me directly, and I couldn’t do nothing as a matter of principle.” (Principal)
“Did you hurt him for your own reasons?” (Yuri)
“Are you okay with that, Fujishiro-sensei?” (Keido)
“It’s not okay! Even for me— DAMN!” (Fujishiro)
It was so stupid. Is there any reason to be so stupid? Tojo of the prefectural assembly … Tojo? Keidou realized something. Maybe he’s…
“This Tojo guy, is he the father of the third year Erika Tojo?” (Keido)
“Yes, he is. Tojo-sensei is an alumnus of our school who is also passionate about education.” (Principal)
“I’ve got it all figured out. That’s how it is!” (Keido)
“Hey, Keido, where are you going? What did you figure out?” (Principal)
Keido was getting impatient. She was the source of the rumors. And the senior student who was threatened by Yukito Kokonoe. It must be about me. If that’s the case, then I will go back to Yukito—
[Erika Tojo PoV]
“You’ll see and watch. This school will definitely kick you out…” (Erika)
A man named Yukito Kokonoe is an abomination. For Eirika Tojo, the student council president, Mutsuki Keido, was like the sun. She admired her for her dignity and her ability to enforce her own justice. She was cheerful, kind, equal to everyone, straightforward and innocent in her way of life. I was very dazzled by her existence. I wanted to be like her.
My family must be wealthy. It was a fact, and I had been raised as a so-called young lady. Maybe that’s why I was always attracted to the independent girl. She was the ideal for me.
But she has changed a lot. I couldn’t believe my ears at first. It sounded like a joke that she was getting down on her knees to become friends with a freshman. But it was not a rumor, it was fact. There was a picture of her on her knees, which I didn’t want to see, but I did.
Then she seemed to be in a feverish state, always worrying about someone else. At first glance, she looked the same as usual, but after watching her for so long, the change was obvious to me.
She is not the kind of person who would do such a thing. It must be that person, Yukito Kokonoe, who is taking advantage of her weakness and threatening her. I can’t forgive him!I can’t forgive that man for defiling my ideals! I can’t allow that man to be in my school! I have to get rid of him. I have to get him out of her sight!
That’s why I…
“Father, I need to talk to you.” (Erika)
“By the way, Yukito, what brings you here at this hour? Aren’t you supposed to be at school?” (Himiyama)
Himiyama-san was smiling as usual, but she also looked worried. Even though I am grounded, I can’t really be confined to my house and not take a step out of it. In fact, that would be more unhealthy. That’s why I was out, but I ran into Himiyama-san, who was probably out shopping, and now I’m here. No, it’s okay, right? She has a strange sense of distance ……. yeah.
“I’m sorry, but I’ve been suspended from school.” (Yuki)
“I baked some cookies. What do you think?” (Himiyama)
“Thank you very much. Why are these so delicious!?” (Yuki)
“Suspensions are a big deal, aren’t they? Did you do something wrong, Yukito-kun?” (Himiyama)
“It’s true that I’m an “evil” person, but I haven’t done anything like that.” (Yuki)
If I had to pick an attribute for Himiyama-san, it would be “Fairy”. She’s got a fuzzy vibe. In other words, I’m no match for her in terms of type compatibility, and she’s also very effective against me. Even today, she’s sitting next to me, and her hand is on my thigh as if it were a matter of course. Why is she doing that? Why did you do that!?
So I told her the truth, since there was no reason to hide it. In my experience, I’ve learned that if I hide things or do things that are somehow misunderstood or misinterpreted, the commotion will spread. I would not make the same mistake. Honesty is the best, right? So, can you please let go of my body just a little bit more?
“That’s unacceptable!” (Himiyama)
“It’s must be hard for you, Yukito-kun……” (Himiyama)
For some reason, I was being hugged by Himiyama-san. The smell of mint sweetly dominates my brain. I feel like I’ve been hugged a lot lately, but I’m not a pillow
“I’ll help you. What’s that, prefectural assemblyman? What about it? I can’t allow such a small person to hurt my Yukito-kun.” (Himiyama)
“No, Himiyama-san, what the hell are you doing? What? My? (Yuki)
She stood up and started to call someone. I can hear her calling her brother and grandfather. I don’t want to hear what kind of dark activity is going on. My sixth sense whispered to me, “I don’t want to listen to it.” That’s what my sixth sense is whispering to me, but my sixth sense has a reputation for being completely unreliable. Then Himiyama-san comes back with a smile on her face.
“Yukito-kun, you’re safe now.” (Himiyama)
“I have a feeling I shouldn’t ask why.” (Yuki)
“Ufufufufufufufu. They need to be punished for trying to frame you, don’t they?” (Himiyama)
“Please be gentle, my Lord!” (Yuki)
“Don’t worry. It’ll all be over soon.” (Himiyama)
“Ah crap, this is bad” (Yuki)
There are some things that should not be touched in order to live life well. That’s what I’m talking about. I’m Yukitsuna Kokonoe, a man who can’t cross a stone bridge after banging on Ishibashi and breaking it. I’ll live my life in peace.
“That’s right! Yukito-kun, if you want, you can call me Oka-san.” (Himiyama)
“What? I only have one Oka-san, Ouka Kokonoe. ……” (Yuki)
“Then you can call me mama.” (Himiyama)
“What do you mean with then!? You’re not changing the subject!?” (Yuki)
“I helped you. Isn’t that good, Yukito? Fu~” (Himiyama)
“I guess…” (Yuki)
She breathes into my ear. The sweet breath was making me dizzy. Before I knew it, I had been saved, but this situation was worse for me. Himiyama-san, who seemed to have saved me, wasn’t going to be able to help me in this situation.
“Himiyama-san is a beautiful woman, so if you do that too much, my reason will ……” (Yuki)
“Ufufufufufufu. It’s okay, Yukito-kun. You can get spoiled as much as you want.…… See?” (Himiyama)
What am I looking at? Eh? Whai!? Wait! What are you–? [TL: ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)]
I felt like I couldn’t describe it anymore.
Is there any way to get out of this hellish peach-colored space?
I was in desperate need of help.
By the way, I was wondering, um… when can I go home?
