Part 5: Episode 5: Sports are for Dorks
Before I knew it, a whole week had passed by.
In never did make up my mind. What should I do?
At this point, everybirdie else has probably gotten their own position. Ill probably just end up getting in the way. Also
May is practically summer already its too hot! I think Ill rest in the library.
The music stops.
Its nice that the AC is on, but do we really need it? Nobirdies in here today.
Its not on.
Its you, Nageki!
Woah! He called me by my name.
They dont turn the air conditioning on until June. It just feels cold compared to outside.
Oh, is that it?
It would be a little strange to start spending money to cool a barely-used library in May.
Anyway, arent you going to participate in the festival, Nageki?
Hmm I see.
Why are you sitting next to me?
Do you mind?
U-um, listen, our class president got duped into being a cheerleader, and
And so I spent the day telling him about the festival and whatnot while he read.
I dont know how much he was listening to me, but he didnt seem to mind I think?
Time flew by in a post-sports festival flurry, until the big day came out of nowhere. My hands were sweaty and I was full of nervous energy.
Were getting them back today Aah, I dont think I did too well.
Maybe I should have gone to math class on elective days Maybe I should have asked Mr. Nanaki for some additional help Maybe I-
One day, you could surpass me. Id love to see that!

And Mr. Nanaki seems happy with me too. Yay!
There really wasnt anything to worry about after all.
After midterms, everything seems to slow down around the campus, so nothing really big happened for the next couple weeks, until
Doves smell kind of funny when it gets humid like this
Huh? There are a bunch of birds in front of the staffroom. What are they doing?
Oh! Theres Yuuya.
Yuuya! Whats going on?
He gestures at a news clipping on the staffroom pinboard.
It says Brain, the First Intelligent Pigeon, Crowned Again.
Dont tell me you dont know who he is!
I think Ive heard the name, but
Hes the worlds most famous blogger. He began when birds were barely intelligent.
Hes a very skilled and insightful writer.
He was the one who suggested that the dove Olympics be called the Pigeolympics. Hes extremely influential -- the name was adopted right away.
Uh-oh, lunch is nearly over. Adieu, Goon!
Wow, there are still so many amazing things to learn about our world!
Brian Pigeon does, in fact, exist. His wordpress blog is similarly real, and has updated regularly since 2006. Its actually kind of neat and has a Hatoful-style charm to it.
