The Let's Play Archive

Part 69

Let's see just how stupid Shiki can get.

I laugh loudly.
Mistaking someone for Ciel-senpai because there's a small resemblance... I truly am beat.

I know I'm beat, but I can't take my eyes away from this person that looks like her.
This person that looks like her sits at the table slurping up udon.
It's curry udon too.
Even her food resembles what Senpai would eat.


Actually, it is Senpai.

Congratulations! On a scale of 1 to 10 you scored a perfect !

I dash with all my strength towards Senpai.
Senpai looks up at me, then glances away quickly.
She's clearly avoiding me.
But, that doesn't matter.

"Senpai, why are you here......!"
I blurt that out because I can't even think of anything else to say.
"Why am I here? I'm a student here, you know. If I don't eat during lunchtime, I'll collapse."
"No, that's not what I mean, but---"
I don't know what to say. My brain just stopped functioning.
She looks away from me as if she wants to complain.

But her face is cocked slightly to the side...

"Or, Tohno-kun, are you saying people like me shouldn't come to school?"
Her eyes, that were so devoid of emotion yesterday, look directly into mine.

...... A student like me? That's what she said.
I don't know if she's really a vampire or not.
But she healed from that fatal wound quickly, so she has to be something more than human, like Arcueid.
You just can't say that's human.

But still.
To me, she is a very dear person.
I still don't know exactly what kind of feelings I have for her.
But with just half a day. It was only half a day, but just thinking she wasn't in my world anymore made me feel like reality was nothing I should care for.

So---for me, she is someone I can't lose.
"...... Senpai, I---"
I'd be lying if I said all of it, but I don't care.
Even if she is the same as Arcueid, Senpai is still Senpai. That is an absolute truth I believe in.
Yes, I should say those words I couldn't say last night.

However, before that...

"............ Huh?"
Of course, no complaints here.
I feel like such an idiot worrying about it so much. The strength drains from my body.
But more than that, I can't help but feel really happy.
"...... Yeah, of course I don't have any complaints. Because up until now, I was ignoring all your warnings and doing as I pleased too, Senpai."

"That is acceptable. Then, let's shake hands."
She sticks out her hand.
I don't know what she's thinking, but I take her outstretched hand.

Senpai shakes it up and down.

"Yes, then this is a sign that we have made peace. Let's stay this way, okay Tohno-kun?"
She flashes a full, truly happy smile.
With that, she stands up, taking her tray as she walks away.

...... I don't know where, but she seems to be heading somewhere.
