Part 14: Episode 14: Maintenance Checks
School was starting fairly slow, but a week or so later I walked into an unpleasant surprise in the classroom.
The classroom is filled with a cloud of dancing feathers.
Did somebirdie eviscerate a down pillow, or something?
Ryouta, what ?
Maybe they didnt clean up properly yesterday ?
Now that I look closely, Ryoutas headfeathers are looking a little loose, too. I guess everybirdies growing themselves new outfits.
Good morning, everybirdie!
Sir! Can we clean up a little before homeroom?
Cleaning in the morning?
This atmosphere is quite distracting. Who was supposed to clean yesterday?
Wretched mongrel! Cant you even fulfill the duty given to you!?
Come on, arguing wont solve anything. Itll be easy if we all pinch in!
And so we swabbed the room down before homeroom.
It certainly is more than usual Did they come in the window, perhaps ?
Sir, umm Did you spill some chlorine on yourself?
Chlorine? We dont use that kind of detergent
But, umm, you really smell like it
Oh, that would be the bleach.
S-sir! Are you one of those degenerates who bathes with bleach powder!?
I didnt want to believe it, but why else would he smell like bleach?
Thats even worse than what I had imagined!
Th-thats dangerous! Sir, please be careful!
Mmm, yes, Ill Zzz.
I guess there wasnt any way he was going to stay awake after helping us clean the room.
Another week and a half went by, and the school was filled with excitement.
I dont have anything to do, so I guess Ill go look around.
Mr. Nanaki? What is it?
Your shift is tomorrow, right?
Of course! I shall mete out information and directions like an Oni of old, cleaver in hand, seated atop a throne wrought from the skulls of my foes!
Thank you! Ill go get a chair.
Wow, the crowd looked big inside the school, but outside it just looked like a giant mass of feathers!
It took almost an hour before the line started to die down.
Are you okay, sir?
Im fine, just a little t
At least he held up pretty well until now
Its almost time to clear up and prepare for classes tomorrow
