Part 23: Episode 22: Sunsets and Cup Sets
The return to school was mostly uneventful. I found a student ID card in the hall, though, and when I asked Mr. Nanaki about it, he said that the student hadnt been here since the middle of first semester. That was weird, but I didnt worry too much about it.
The next elective day, I took Mr. Nanakis math class. I hope I didnt forget everything over the break!
School was going well for me at the start. I feel so invigorated!
Ryouta? Whats up?
Want to walk home together? Though, if you were going somewhere else
The most elegant of seasons
Hey, look, a swallow!
The most elegant of birds
Oh, theres its nest!
Theyre supposed to be done rearing chicks by the start of summer I guess all birds are changing, now.
I guess so. The chicks are really small
That reminds me of something from a long time ago.
When I was young, I found Ryouta freezing on the ground after falling out of his mothers nest.
Doves breed all year round No wonder theyre everywhere.
That was how we met, right? When I found you flopping around in the dirt and carried you back up to your nest.
Thinking about it, if I hadnt walked by then, youd be dead.
Though, youre still not the healthiest bird around!
Yeah Thank you, Goon. If you hadnt found me then, I wouldnt be here now.
I remember it as if it were yesterday. Ever since, Ive Ive always loved your kindness and monkey tree-climbing genes.
It was nice to be able to talk to Ryouta like this. Being with him always seems to put my mind at ease.
A couple weeks later and the school was aflutter with activity.
I dont have anything to do, so I guess Ill go look around.
Where to go, where to go! Lets see
Whats up, Ryouta?
Y-youre right Where are they all coming from!?
Leave it to me, Ryouta! Ill give them a taste of my SUPER MAID technique!
And so I never ended up looking around the festival. Only maids now!
