That night, you had another dream...

It was winter. You were staggering through the streets, your hoodie the only layer you have on. Despite all this, you feel strangely warm all over. You know this sensation.
The embrace of death. You're dying soon.

Soon you find yourself sitting on a park bench. You spot no one out in the road. No sane person would be out in this kind of weather. Not even the homeless.
But not only are you homeless, you also think your insane yourself. For the first time in a long while, you actually reflected.

About the highschool life you wasted, about the parents you burdened, about all the posters and figurines that you'd rather die for than sell.

And now you have none.
You concluded, in the end, that you have done nothing right in your life.

"Just one noble thing," you wish. "I want to do one noble thing before I die."
An elderly to point to the right direction, a girl to save from a truck slipping on ice, anything.

But it never happens.
You die, wish never fulfilled--

That morning, your jog was more silent than usual. Not that you talked much in your runs, but even the patter of your feet seem mute.
Your unofficial partner seems to have noticed too. You catch her at times glancing at your direction.

Your "friend" seems to be surprised (you don't know how you can tell with those thick glasses of her) but she doesn't disuade you.

"Well...say, hypothetically you are given a chance to live a new life...and atone for your, er, sins...and then you're given a new, like, mission to do? But then you could just live your life normally as well, but then that 'mission' will nag you for--hey, where are you going?"
For some reason the girl has scuttled away from you.

"Nii-san...is this perhaps your way of telling me that you were a hitman in your past life and you've been called back by your agency once more, despite promises of retirement?!"
"Wait, hold on a moment!" First of all, 'Nii-san'? The girl's as tall as you!

"I said it's hypothetical, hypothetical! It's for a novel I'm writing."
"..." She's still suspicious, but in the end she jogs with you again. Ever since you gained the knowledge that Mobs are just the same as any normal person, it seems asking her things became easier.

"So, you're asking me this, Nii-san, because you want to understand the choice the protagonist wants to make?"
"Something like that."
"Well, I can't help you, sorry. Despite these thick glasses, I'm actually an idiot."

>"Just humor me, then."

She doesn't face you and instead keeps on jogging.
"Even from an idiot like me?"
"And about that. I don't know why you keep on calling yourself an idiot. If your classmates have been bothering you, just ignore them." All this 'Nii-san' business seems to have turned on some kind of big brotherly instincts.

She shakes her head. "No, my friends are kind to me. It's just they don't know I'm an idiot yet."
Before you could inquire further, she stops her jog. She places her hand on her chin and thinks.

"Well...so the choice is for the protagonist to either take up the mission or live his life in peace?"
"Yes."
"And if he doesn't take up the mission?"
"Well, it'll weigh down on him for the rest of his life."
"And if he does take up the mission?"
"...Something bad might happen."

[End of the World]. You're still not sure what that means. Does that mean Yumegawa, its residents, and this fictional universe disappears? Thinking about it...despite only being [Awakened] a few days, it seems like such a sad thought.
But...your chance to do something noble--

"Eh, then isn't it an easy choice, Nii-san?"
"...Really?"
"Yes. Just live your life in peace."

"Ehh, isn't it pretty simple, Nii-san? If something bad will happen then don't do it."
"But--"
"Living your whole life weighed down...yes it's not really ideal, but then the protagonist could live through his life bearing it, right?"
You think about it. To deny the [End], means to deny the Happiness of Nakamura Eiji. You will deny a man's happiness, so that your own life that has passed already may live longer. All off the basis of what your little brother said.
"...He's not sure if he could bear it."

She puts her hands on her waist, then sighs. "I really am an idiot after all, huh...It seems I troubled you more."
"Don't say that. You were a big help."
You come to a conclusion.

"Since I'm the, er, 'author', I should figure this out myself one step at a time."
You are the only one who was [Asleep], which means you are the only one reincarnated in this world. There must be a reason why you [Awakened] in this world.
Is it to fulfill your dying wish...?
Or are you being manipulated by the "Devil of this World"...?

"Anyway! This is way too deep a conversation to have in the morning," you laugh.
"Yeah," she giggles in reply.
"I just noticed we haven't exchanged names yet. I'm Yamada Ken." You bow down, and so does she.
"Murakami Saya. Shall we continue our jog, then Nii-san?"
"Ohh? You sounded kind of cool there, even if you are panting just a minute before...?"
"Nii-saaan, that's mean! Fine, I won't ever help you again!"
"Oi, don't run too fast, you'll trip--!"

Just live your life one step at a time.

By the time you got back, your dad says that Kei has left along with your mother back to Tokyo. You have a feeling it will be a long time before you see him again.

After a quick shower and breakfast, you head towards the school like nothing has happened this weekend. Everything seems surreal, it all looks the same and so different at the same time.
You bump into a familiar face so early in the morning.

"Yamada-kun. Good morning."
"Hanazawa-san. Same to you too."

"Want to walk up the hill together?"
She nods.

You missed the bloom of the cherry blossoms this year. The trees have long gone back to their normal color.
The classmates around you are chatting happily, already settled into the school.
You and Hanazawa on the other hand, are walking silently, not even looking at each other. What's the point of inviting her if you don't talk about anything anyway?

So you talk about--

Perspective.
If all the [Mobs] are made explicitly to fill the [Protagonists] world, even if they are real people, they can give us a clue into the nature of this world. Authors put tone into their creation, and these responses will help us build an idea of exactly what the Authors want.

"Hanazawa-san, say, hypothetically speaking..."
You lay out the same scenario you did with Murakami.

The results are, well, remarkably different.

"Eh? You're writing a novel, Yamada-kun?"
"Wha--No, that's not the point..."
"But isn't that really cool, Yamada-kun? Not anyone can write a novel you know..."

She faces you smiling. You've never seen her eyes twinkle before, but here they are. You remember something your dad said about "the man's creative side,".

"Would you mind letting me read some of your work?"

"Er, honestly, it's nowhere near ready yet. Most of it are still just ideas in my head. That's why I'm asking around for...input."
So...instead of denying it, you decide to play along with Hanazawa's misunderstanding.

Looks like you're writing a novel now.
"Promise you'll let me read it when it's finished, then?"
"...Sure?"

She smiles, then tugs on her pink scrunchie. "About your question though...if it were me, I'll definitely do the mission."
"Why is that?"
"Well, not everyone gets another chance to have another chance at life. And not everyone is given a purpose in life. Of course, I'd like to fulfill that mission."
"But then something bad might happen..."
"Might. Something also good might happen. You don't really know until you do it, right?"

...But you do know. Working for the [Happiness] of Nakamura Eiji might mean the End of the World, if what Kei said is correct.

In the end, all of your newfound knowledge rests on if your little brother is telling the truth.

"...Thanks, Hanazawa-san. That kind of helps."
She nods. "Writing, huh...you're actually more interesting than I thought, Yamada-kun."

You reach the school in no time. Even after changing into your indoor shoes, you still walk to class together, chatting.
"By the way, Hanazawa-san, what are your hobbies?"
"...Eh?"
That's a...bizarre reaction.

"I mean, I told you mine. What about your hobbies?"
"Um...about that..."
She's acting suspicious.
"Didn't we agree to get to know each other better?"
"I mean, yes, but..."
"Aw, c'mon Hanazawa. Your hobby can't be more embarassing than mine right?"

It looks like she's split between telling you or not.
"But it's not very...feminine..."

"Hanazawa? Please?" You try to summon puppy dog eyes with your feature-less face. Somehow, it worked, because in the end she sighs.

"It stays between us."
"Of course."
"You owe me your manuscript."
"Yes."
"Plus some."
"...How good is this hobby, really...?"

She steps closer to you, and ruffles through her bag. She pulls out a thick book and shows it to you.
"...Coding? Hanazawa, you're a programmer?"

"Well, there's a difference between coding and programming...nevermind, that's not the point."
She hides the book as fast as she pulled it out.
"It's a stupid hobby. I'm not even that good with computers..."
"Then why are you studying it."

She sighs. "Who knows? I guess I'm an M after all."

And after declaring a surprisingly hot statement, she leaves you behind stunned.
...Well, you know her a bit better now, you think...

Homeroom just ended, and now you're preparing for the next class. While pulling out the materials, you glance to the seat to your right. No change. The seat's still empty.
Sensei enters, carrying a stack of papers. "Alright class, hide your textbooks."
You raise your eyebrows. You look around, and for some reason you're the only guy with his textbook out.
"It's time for the quiz."

...Eh?
You completely forgot! You didn't even choose to study this weekend, so you have no idea what the coverage will be about...

You receive the question sheet, and sure enough, you have no clue what in the world to do.
But you've been through High School once, right? You might be able to utilize that.

You buckle down on your seat and focus on the test in front of you. Concentrate, you've been through this before.
You write the answers to questions that look familiar first, then try to logic out the rest out of the questions.
"Alright, pass your papers forward..."

You hand off your paper to the guy in front of you. You hope you did well--

-------

"Yamada?" You were just about to leave the classroom for lunch when Hikaru peeks out from outside the room, calling for you.
"You're calling for me, class rep?"
"Yeah. Sensei's looking for you in the faculty."

...Hm.

"Well, to be honest, Sensei..."
And then you start explaining your recent memory predicament.

Sensei listens intently. She raises her brows at different parts of your story, but ultimately stays quiet 'til the end.

"Yamada-kun, have you been undergoing treatment for your situation right now?"
"Er, yes." You just neglect to tell her that that 'treatment' is your daily morning jog.
"Do you have a medical certificate?"
"I did but...I forgot where I put it."

She narrows her eyes. You're being really cheeky right now, but you don't have an option but to play sick.
"Hmm," she crosses her arms and thinks about your situation.
"Well, Yamada-kun, the best I could offer you is a retake..."
"I'll be very grateful if you'll let me, Sensei."

She looks you up and down before sighing. "Well, you have been a good kid so far, so I have no reason to doubt you..."
She files your quiz away in a folder.
"Well, with your situation right now, would you like some tutoring or assistance of some sort?"

"Alright." Sensei writes something down on a piece of paper and turns back to you.
"I'll arrange for something then."

-------

Class has ended. You are fixing your stuff, when you spot Hanazawa scrolling through her phone.

"Hanazawa, do you have anywhere to go to later?"
"Hm?" She doesn't bother looking up from her phone. "Nope. Why are you asking?"
"Then want to go home together?"

Silence. It's as if the air in the room freezes.
Hanazawa glances at you for a second, before returning her gaze to the screen. She stretches her neck, and tucks a loose strand of hair behind her ear.
"Su--"

"Yamada." Before Hanazawa can finish her reply, Hikaru approaches and calls for you once again.
"What is it class rep?"
"I have something to ask you. Do you mind if you stay back for a while?"

>Sure, no problem

"Well, what is it?" Surely, she could ask about it with Hanazawa here right? Then you could be on your way.
Hikaru is stunned for a second, but then her face morphs into a smug grin.

"Ara, ara. Am I messing up with some...after school plans? You do know it's against school regulations to loiter around after hours, you know? Fufufu."
You pull her closer by the shoulder and hiss at her.
"O-Oi, Yamada!"
"Like I said, it's not like that, alright?"
"Fine, fine," She whispers back. "But really, let me go already. I just need to talk with you privately!"
"Why can't you ask it right now then? Will it be long?"
"Well, I could if you want to. But, I'm just saying, there are times that a 9 is impressive, but it's not this one..."

Geh.
You let her go. She fixes her slightly ruffled clothes, before facing you again grinning.
"Well, it is impressive in it's own way, if you think about it."

You sigh and face Hanazawa apologetic.
"Hanazawa, about that offer..."
"It's alright. Don't worry about it."
She doesn't look up from her screen.

You try to ignore her body language. She's clearly annoyed.

You and Hikaru arrive at the library. There are not many students around studying, leaving the atmosphere of the room quiet and cool. Orange sunlight streams through the windows, giving off a nice relaxing feel.
"Let's sit here, Yamada-kun." She motions to an empty table. From her bag she produces the textbook and some pieces of paper.

"Honestly, when Sensei told me about your memory situation and your quiz score today, I was a bit surprised. Didn't I tell you as class rep, I'll help you in any way?"

>Sorry for being a bother.
>Could I rely on you from now on?

She grins, and leans forward...
Before flicking you in the forehead.
"Idioooot. I'm just doing my duty as a class rep. This much is nothing."
She says, even though you're well aware that right now you're taking up her free time.
The least you could do is your best, you think to yourself.

Your tutoring session begins. Hikaru teaches the complex concepts with ease. She assists you through every step of the formula, but still makes sure you actually come up with the answer on your own.
"Now this here, Yamada-kun..."
You think that she'd make an excellent teacher in the future.

After a pretty rigorous session, Hikaru leans back on her seat and sighs.
"OK let's take a short break. Remember, Yamada-kun, that effective studying is also made up of frequent pauses in your session."
"Yes, ma'am."

She smiles and fixes the papers in front of you. "Sorry about that, by the way."
"About what?"
"About Hanazawa-san." She smiles, while putting her head on her cheeks. This love-obsessed tsundere...

"Nee-san's offer still stands too, Yamada-kun. What do you think?"

>It's not like that, class rep...

"Why do you keep pushing us and Hanazawa together, class rep? I mean...I know you want to help, but I just can't see what's in this for you..."
She sighs. The smile on her face fades away as she leans back on the chair. Her face turns dark and deathly serious.

"Yamada."
"...Yes...?"
"You owe me right?"
"...Of course, class rep. For covering for me, and now for tutoring me--"
"Good. Then would you mind if I take you up on that offer now?"

The previous playfulness of the class rep is gone. Not even the regal conduct of being class representative remains.
Tsunderes. They always hide their real emotions under a facade of violence with the main character.
You could never imagine that the image of the Hikaru you know might be false as well...

The Hikaru in front of you looks desparate, downright neurotic.

"Help me, Yamada...I can't take it anymore..."
She breathes heavily. A Hikaru Ryou full of doubt is laid bare in front of you.

"Please...help me win."

Well, shit.
In fictionland, if you're trying to get two people together you'll end up with one of them instead. So if Hikaru ships us with Hanazawa, and we ship her with Eiji, it's practically inevitable that we become a couple.

Stupid idea, but what if the [Happiness] is going full harem mode? What if we still finish the mission by locking the protagonist to one route? He will still be happy, sure, but not full-on harem happy.

Maybe the only chance to leave this world alive is to end up as a romantic partner of the Main Character? All prospective harem members would be aware and competing in this deadly tournament, forced to act like cliche characters in order to win and survive. Then wouldn't even necessarily find the MC attractive at all, just act out of desperate self-preservation. Add the plot point of egoistic harem member refusing to share with anyone else, locking away the full harem end and effectively killing everyone. Another point of harem members actually loving some else and so on. Also, in that scenario, the true end would involve making literally everyone alive a part of the harem in order to survive the exodus.

Tick, tock. Tick, tock.

Silence has grew between the two of you and the class rep. Hikaru Ryou sits in front of you, her usual positive demeanor long gone.
Instead, what sits in front of you is a distraught girl. Desperation in her eyes, pleading.
Broken.

You want to flee but her gaze glues you to the seat.
You won't run away from this.
You can't.

Tick, tock. Tick, tock.

“Hikaru...I need you to calm down first.” She’s really fragile right now, but you need to know what she’s talking about.
“Now...could you tell me what all this, “winning” talk is about?”

She’s breathing shallow, but it seems at least for now she’s focused on you.
“You don’t know...for how long I’ve liked him, Yamada-kun.”
“Him?”
“Don’t act dumb now. I know you know. I’ve seen you looking at us before. You know right?”

You seem hesitant to agree at first, but then you nod.
Hikaru Ryou likes Nakamura Eiji.

“I’ve known him since middle school...even before, he wasn’t manly at all. He was soft, a push-over, and he always had this stupid smile on when he greets me.
“But...he’s kind. Despite me not being very feminine either, he treated me very kindly. He sometimes teased me, but...he always tries to stand up for me and protect me.

“I thought I was special, in some way...but I’m an idiot for thinking so.”

>How do you know you aren’t?

Presentation of this is important--outright saying she is special to him feels so hamfisted. Like I know we're supposed to be building this girl up and all but out and just calling her a precious cinnamon bun that can do no wrong almost makes it feel disingenuous.
>>
>>2131641
ow do you know you aren’t? I think you two are close, in all honesty.”

She shakes her head. “I’m just her middle school friend.
Him and Rei were childhood friends.
He’s even more protective of Rinko then he was of me.
And I know for a fact that Kobayashi Mariko is exactly his type. The mature, regal beauty.

“I got…”

She places her head on her hands.

“I have nothing. I’m going to lose him to...to them.”

“Maybe it’s because of your...violent tendencies?” You try to avoid the ‘T’ word for now. “I mean, I’m sure he has some latent feelings for you in there, right? Maybe if you were a bit kinder...highlight your good points...maybe--”

“Zugzwang.”
“...Eh?” Hikaru mentions a strange term.
“It’s a term in chess, where any move you make will worsen your position.
“You wish things would remain the same, forever. But that’s impossible. You have to make a move...but every move you could take is a loss.

“If I pursue him, it would also mean losing the friendship I had with the others. That is...sad. The times I had with Kobayashi, Rinko-chan, and Rei are really fun. I don’t want to lose them either…
“But then, that would be the same as giving up my feelings for Eiji...and I can’t bear the thought of that either.

“I try to keep my frustrations down, but recently its manifested into me hitting him. I’m sure any feelings he might have, if they even existed in the first place, is gone. It might not seem like it, but it seems like something’s going to happen soon.

“But every move I could make in my position right now only leads to one thing.”

She smiles. A painful one.

“Inevitable loss.”

You want to win, take the loss. Either they are still your friends afterwards, or they aren't. Your personal happiness cant hinge on your friends always coming first.

She looks at you and grins.

“Hold on, class rep. You’re not asking me for help to cheat on Nakamura-san right?”
“Idioot. It’s a metaphor. You can’t win in a chess game? You cheat. Move some pieces, flip the table, whatever.”
“At that point, can’t you just accept your loss…?”

She smiles. “If your life depended on it, it probably won’t be that easy, right?”
“That’s an unfair comparison, class rep…”

But maybe that’s her way of saying how serious she is about him. The least you could do is hear her out proeprly, you think.

“Alright, then class rep. What is this grand plan of yours to break your ‘zugzwang’?”

“There is no way I could match Kobayashi’s beauty, or Rinko-chan’s cuteness, and even Rei has spent a longer time with Eiji than me.
“If I were to win, I need a person in the inside…”

The hairs in the back of your neck stands up. You could see where Hikaru is headed with this, and it is dangerous.

“I need you to befriend Nakamura Eiji.”

You freeze up. Directly interacting with the MC? Won’t that be acting out of your parameters? Isn’t that grounds for [Erasure] in this world?

However, you have to decide here and now that, if it comes down to it and you have to choose, are you going to say how you feel, or preserve your friendships. Not every story has a neat tidy ending. Mine didn't..."

>>2132001
We really need to emphasize this. This isn't NOT pursuing him, this is using a middle-man to find details so you can pursue him more effectively.

Your story probably isn't going to have as happy of an ending as you hope, if you're so sure something's going to give.

>Nothing will happen if we don’t take action. Besides, you feel bad for the class rep.

“...Fine.”
She raises her brows. It looks like she was expecting you to deny at first.

“Look, class rep, I do owe you a favor for a lot of things, so this is just me trying to repay it. But...to be honest, I’m not all happy about it. It’s like we’re going behind Nakamura-san’s back.”
“I’m just asking you to become his friend and know his likes and dislikes. There’s no harm in that is there?”

“I mean, you’re right but...there’s a different underlying motive. At the very least class rep, please do think about this thoroughly. About whether what you’re doing here is the right or wrong thing after all.”
She thinks about it for a second and nods. At the very least, you’re relieved to see that she’s going to consider everything that you said seriously.

She puts out her hand. “Deal?”
“Deal.”

You shake your hands together. Before you separate though, you feel her quiver for a bit. It was only then that you see her whole body’s shaking.
She’s crying. And with a smile as bright as the sun.

“Thank you, Yamada-kun...thank you…”

[Happiness].

The word pops into your mind. This is what Kei is talking about.
The fulfilment of Nakamura Eiji’s harem is the key to his [Happiness].

That means, as soon as one of the girls win, it’s all over?

...You’ve decided. You agreed to Hikaru’s plan--

>To fulfill Eiji’s romance and give him [Happiness]
>To prolong it as much as possible and preserve your new life

Also, remind me, goal is to give him a full harem, or push a girl to WIN? Because one of these things is much much harder than the other.

>>2132059
>>To fulfill Eiji’s romance and give him [Happiness]

I want us to solve the Harem, let the dude find his happiness and then we'll suddenly wake up in another anime as another mob character with a new problem to solve, so after we'll discover that we were actually the MC of a really meta series

It's not worth the pain of screwing anyone over, and we don't even know if things end when he gets his happy ending.

Honestly, I wanna go to Eiji and say "Look, my dude, this girl has it bad for you. Has for a while, but she doesn't want to mess up her friendships eith the other girls that are moving closer to you. If you like her, you gotta go for it before some gets their heart broken, and if you don't feel that way, you gotta tell her."

We aren't playing this her way, we go in straight and direct. They'll both thank us eventually.
>>
>>2132059
>To fulfill Eiji’s romance and give him [Happiness]

Though the lines:
>The fulfilment of Nakamura Eiji’s harem is the key to his [Happiness].

Makes it sound like the key is for the members of his harem to all achieve happiness. I say we go for both!

Goals are:
>Help Eiji find happiness with one of the girls.
>Help Hikaru remain friends with the other girls
>Figure out what Eiji thinks of Hikaru and what he likes in a girl.

We have the perfect cover for this too. Mom told us to join a club, so let's join his.

YES

WE ARE HIJACKING THIS HAREM ANIME AND TURNING IT INTO...INTO...

Some weird Slice of Life/wacky hijinks/coming of age thing, I think?

Think Nichijou mixed with the "more normal" parts of FLCL and a dash of that one anime with Satan as a McDonald's worker and notes of It and Stand By Me.

ou’ve decided to accept the mission you were sent here to do. To grant your own dying wish.

To fulfill Nakamura Eiji’s romance and grant him [Happiness].

Whether that means you champion Hikaru, or even somehow convince him to accept them all...you don’t know yet.

But for now, you should listen to Hikaru’s request.
And try to make her the winning girl.

-------

You’ve spent a while inside the library, but in the end, you get all of your studying done.
“Ahhh, studying really does give you a good feeling, doesn’t it?”

Hikaru has returned back to her usual self, and is stretching by your side as you head out of the school.
“How are your grades, class rep?”
“Excellent. That’s why sensei asked me first before anyone else.”
“Is that so? Aren’t you pretty smart after all, Hikaru-san.”

“...Ah, crap.”
You were just about to exit the building together when she stops on her tracks.
“...Class rep.”
“...Sorry, I’m an idiot after all, Yamada.”

She runs back to inside the school. “You go on ahead, Yamada, I just forgot something in the library!”
“Wait I’ll join you--”
“It’s OK! Don’t worry, I’ll overlook this school violation for now so you better make it count!”

Before you could ask what in the world she’s talking about, she’s disappeared back in the hallways.
“Well, she did tell me to go ahead…”

You change to your outdoor shoes and head out.
The sun is a bright orange now, probably an hour before it sets fully.
The gate is bereft of students, as is expected.

Except for one.

“...Took you long enough.”

Hanazawa’s leaning by the school gates playing with her phone.

“Where’s the class rep?”

>What are you doing here?
>You seem to have a misunderstanding about me and class rep.
>>
>>2132059
>To fulfill Eiji’s romance and give him [Happiness]

>>
>>2132143
>>What are you doing here?
>>
>>2132143
>>You seem to have a misunderstanding about me and class rep.
>>
>>2132143
She's doing her own thing, what you should be asking is where we're walking next.
>>
>>2132143
>Were you waiting here for me?
>...Thanks, Hanazawa-san (winning smile)
>>
>>2132143
>You seem to have a misunderstanding about me and class rep.
>>
>>2132143
>Hanazawa
>Class rep just asked us to help get her and Nakamura Eiji together, without hurting the others.
>Doesn't that sound fun?
>>
>>2132143
>>You seem to have a misunderstanding about me and class rep.

Really hoping this is just a normal conversation and doesn't get blown up into a hammy confrontation
>>
>>2132159

>No clue. Were you waiting out here for me? Thanks!

As much as I like Hanazawa, we need to clear the air like, immediately about this whole 'rampant jealousy' thing that keeps cropping up.
>>
>>2132143
>What are you doing here?
"Thought you would have gone home by now, didn't expect you to wait."

Also explain that we're getting extra classes because of the 9
>>
>>2132161
>Please help me Hanazawa, please.
>>
>>2132143
>You seem to have a misunderstanding about me and class rep.
>>
>>2132143
>You seem to have a misunderstanding about me and class rep.

“You seem to misunderstand, Hanazawa. She’s just asked me for, er, love advice.”
Hanazawa doesn’t even remove her gaze from her phone. “Love advice?”
“Yeah, something like that.”
“Ehh, that’s amazing Yamada-kun, I didn’t know you and class rep were so clooose~.”

She says all this in a deadpan manner.
Hanazawa kicks off from the wall she’s leaning and start walking down the hill.

“H-Hanazawa! Wait for me!”
Though it seems like she’s stomping away from you, she still waits for you to catch up beside her.
“Again, you’re misunderstanding...and, besides, why are you acting this way?”

She exhales rapidly. “Geez, Yamada-kun, are you dense…?!”
“Hey, don’t leave me behind again!”

You walk downwards down the hill, together with a Hanazawa that is clearly irritated.
That’s bad. You--

>>2132193
“Hanazawa.”
She doesn’t reply.
“It’s really not like that but look...Let me treat you to something.”
She continues to walk down the hill, not facing you.
“It’s my sorry of sorts for keeping you waiting. And also thank you.”
“...”
“Please don’t be mad.”

You did nothing wrong, yes, but you do feel kind of bad. You basically pseudo-confessed to her, and now you’re associating yourself with the class rep the past few days. You could infer how she’s feeling, somehow…

She stops. You stare at her, and wait as she looks you up and down once more. Under the setting sun, she looks stunning.

She sighs, and walks up to you. Hanazawa reaches and fixes your hair once more. With her being higher on the hill, she easily bridges the height difference of you two.

“I’m not mad. Sorry. I wanted to make you feel a bit bad too, somehow. You don’t have to treat me.”
“No...I insist, Hanazawa. It’s the least I could do for keeping you waiting.”

She smiles, benevolent.

“...Alright. I’m sorry too, for being all jealous of the class rep.”
You break into a grin. “You were jealous?”
“...Geez, you’re terrible, Yamada-kun!”

“I’ll only accept those limited edition Ichigo Daifuku as your repentance!”
“Wait, aren’t those like really expensive?!”

You leave the school behind and make your way to the shopping district.

It has been a few days since the class rep asked for your cooperation in the pursuit of Nakamura Eiji.
So far she hasn’t asked you to do anything drastic, except of course for the “Get closer to him,” instruction.

“Dad, I’m heading out.”
“Have a fun day, Ken-chan!”

It’s a day that started like any other. As you exit the house and close the door, you hear the neighbors shouting the same farewells to their child.
Oh right. Didn’t your mother say something about their child being the same year level as you.

Your neighbor’s door starts to open.
For some reason, your instincts start to kick in.

You’ve got a bad feeling about this.

>>
>>2132309
>Act normal

You exit your compound like normal, trying to make it look like there’s nothing wrong.

“Therefore! I shall be departing, my beloved mother and father!”
“Ora! Conquer them all!”

...That’s certainly a bombastic farewell.

You walk normal, trying not to look back in case that makes you look suspicious. You sense his presence come closer to you. You brace yourself…

And watch as Tokomichi Endou bikes off ahead of you, towards the school.

“...What, it’s just him…?”
So apparently, he’s your neighbor. Though a nice coincidence, this isn’t out of the ordinary.

Were your instincts wrong, perhaps…?

>cont’d
>>
>>2132347
You arrive at the school, and as you are changing to your indoor shoes, you are met by a surprising welcome party.

“Yamada-kun.”
“Yamada.”

“Hanazawa? Class rep? Is there something I could help you with?”

Hanazawa looks sheepish, terrified even. The class rep on the other hand, looks dead serious.

“Could we talk to you before classes start, Yamada?”
You nod. You see no reason to decline.

You make your way to the courtyard, and there class rep faces you arms akimbo.
“She’s coming today. I want to make sure you’re up for protecting Hanazawa.”

>Who’s coming today?
>Of course, class rep
>I’m not sure, actually

“Nakahara, that’s who.” She says with spite.
“Nakahara…?” Hikaru says it as if you should know who she is.

“Listen. Try to just ignore her. Don’t do anything stupid and get yourself in a situation. Just make sure you don’t trigger her or anything. I’m in the same class as you guys anyway, so we should be fine…”
You wonder what’s going on, but from Hikaru’s tone of voice, it’s nothing good.

“And try not to let her get too close with Hanazawa anymore.”
“Don’t worry class rep,” Hanazawa says. “I could handle it. And Yamada-kun’s going to be there, so…”

Sounds like trouble. Play it safe.

The three of you enter the classroom at the same time. All of the Mobs are whispering in hushed tones.

“Did you hear? Nakahara’s coming to school today…”
“Nakahara? *That* Nakahara?”
“I sure hope nothing happens…”

The class rep heads for her seat, while you and Hanazawa settle into yours. As you prepare your things, you hear it.

Footsteps. Big. Booming. A strong presence, emanating from the hallway.

The classroom door slides open.
A girl with blood red hair enters into the classroom. There are band-aids all over her body, and bruises that peek from the sleeves of her uniform. She huffs like some sort of gang boss.

Then you realize that’s because she -is- the gang boss.
Nakahara Fumi.

You look at her blood red hair, striking amongst the sea of brown and black hair. But unlike Tezuka’s or Hikaru’s, this was unnatural. It was dyed this shade, to unsettle and to intimidate.

She's not any sort of playful harem romcom character. This is a real deal sukeban.

And she sits on the empty seat right next to you.

“Oi,” You realize she’s talking to you.

“What’s it to you?”
You don’t back down to anyone, not even if she is a delinquent.

She snorts, as if enjoying your reply.
“Finally grew some balls, huh, city boy?”

That’s right. This isn’t your first interaction. You also have had multiple encounters while you were asleep.
“Listen. You’re new here so I’ll spell it out for you. I’m the LAW around here, you don’t LOOK at me unless you are told, you don’t SPEAK to me unless you are told. It's best you learn that fast."

“Don’t patronize me, you piece of shit. You think you’re some sort of hot-shot? What, you’re above highschoolers now, city trash?”

You want to say that you were actually 38 and indeed much older than this delinquent, but you keep your mouth shut on that.
The air around the room is tense. It feels like something’s about to snap.
You catch from the corner of your eye staring straight into her empty desk. She’s nervous.

“What? Out of comebacks already?” She snickers as she watches you with malice, smiling. “Piss off already.”

The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Yakuza and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

“Gimme a break...What are you trying to prove? Just stop blabbering already.”
“Ha! Then,”

She stands up from her seat. You do the same.
“Want to settle it here then, you little shit?”
“Sure, maybe I’ll finally teach you some manners.”

You butt each others foreheads. You had to bend your neck since she’s smaller and you, and you are in pretty good shape all things considered…
But something tells you you have nothing on her in a fight. It’s a difference of experience.

“Both of you, stop it!”
Hikaru goes in between the two of you. Hanazawa also grabs you by the arm pulling you away.

“Yamada-kun, please stop it!” She says into your sleeve.

“Yamada, Nakahara, stand down both of you!” The class rep’s pissed off. The whole class is filled with a tense atmosphere.
“Ara, you’re getting in between us Ryou? Maybe you’d like to fight in his place?”

“I’d like to see you try me, Fumi,” she says to Nakahara with gritted teeth. “But fighting is a violation of the school’s regulations! Or would you rather I send you both down to the principal? Maybe get you both kicked out?”

Slowly, the killing intent from her fades, and so did yours.

“Hands off me, class rep.”
She carefully released Nakahara. The delinquent retakes her seat, placing her feet on top of the desk. But she doesn’t rouse anymore trouble.

The class rep glares at you before returning to her seat. Hanazawa is still clinging to your arm, shaking a bit.

“It’s fine, Hanazawa…”

You try to calm her down before sensei arrives and homeroom starts.

>cont’d
>>
>>2132732
If Hikaru chews us out, we can explain it as deflecting attention away from Hanazawa

>>2132759
we could also claim to be in a bad mood thanks to some stuff our brother said
>>
>>2132732
Nakahara left the classroom in the middle of the class sometime before lunchtime. She hadn’t returned since.

As the bells for lunch ring, you feel your ear pulled out into the corridor.
“Owowowow--”
“What the hell do you think you are doing, Yamada?!” Hikaru hisses at you.

“I asked you to protect Hanazawa, not stoop down to her level!”
“I was just--”
“Shut up!”

She grabs you by the tie and pulls you down.
“Listen to me. It doesn’t mean that we’re friends and that you’re helping me out with Eiji that you could do whatever the hell you want. I swear to god, however hard I am to Nakahara I’ll be ten times harder with you.”

She pushes you off. “I don’t know if you’re trying to prove your manliness or something, but trust me, you just looked like an idiot there earlier, picking a fight with Nakahara.”
“I could handle her.”
“Ha! I really hope you don’t learn your lesson the hard way.”

She glances at the classroom, before stepping in and whispering.
“Also...think about Hanazawa. You looked scary back there, Yamada. Is it worth terrifying her to save some face?”

You gulp. You remember trying to calm her down and pry her off you, but she just wouldn’t let go. Was she scared for you? Or was she scared of you?

“Promise me, Yamada. If not for me, then for Hanazawa. No more fights inside the school?”

>Yes, class rep.
>I can’t promise anything...
>>
>>2132787
>>I can’t promise anything...

“I can’t promise you anything, class rep. If she starts messing with you, or with Hanazawa, I won’t care whether it’s the school or not.”
At first she looks at you with narrowed eyes, until finally she sighs and steps away from you.

“I didn’t know you were so stubborn, Yamada…”
“If it’s for you guys,” you say smiling.

“Anyway, I understand saying you’ll protect Hanazawa if she’s in trouble, but you don’t have to include me. She might get the wrong idea, you know? I can handle myself.”
You are stunned for a second from the statement that seemingly came out of nowhere, but then you smile at her.

“No, I’ll protect you too.”
You scratch your head, bit embarrassed with what you’re going to say next.
“Cause...isn’t it a boy’s job to protect the girl? You’re a girl too, class rep. That’s why it’s my duty to protect you too.”

She looks up at you, dazed. Then, she punches you in the side of your arm.

“I-Idiot! What the hell are you saying to me, stupid Yamada!”

But before you could even reply, she marches off back into the classroom.

I figured class rep fans were just trying to win her over

are we in the clannad-verse? except that this is a romcom harem?

Oh wait Clannad is romcom too....a bit that is.

>>2132860
End of classes. Hikaru has been called into the faculty for class rep work. Hanazawa, on the other hand, is the assigned class monitor for today.
You’ve decided to go home together with Hanazawa today, fearing something might happen if you weren’t there. You are now just waiting for her to return and inform her.

There’s a knock on the classroom door. A student, some random [Mob], stands outside looking for someone.
“Can I help you?”
“Yes, er, I’m looking for a Yamada-san?”
“That’s me.”
“Well, there’s a girl by the back of the school, asking for help from you…”

You immediately get up from your seat. How could you be such an idiot?!
“Hanazawa!”

You dash out the room, heading towards the back of the school as fast as possible. That Nakahara, if she did something to her…!
You turn the corner to the back of the school.

You see the bat fast enough to brace yourself.

Before you realized it, you’re lying in your back, facing the afternoon sun. An intense pain emanates from your stomach. You want to throw up.

You’re an really an idiot, huh. You know this genre, dammit. You should’ve seen this coming.

A devil steps forward and looms over you, blocking the light.

“So, little city shit,” Nakahara says. “Let’s dance."

(TO BE CONT’D)

We're probably not winning this fight we can mess with her head though. Also Tokomichi Endou is suspicious as fuck

Fix'd.

call her a weak cunt for ambushing us with a weapon and express a lack of surprise since shes a woman.
Then tell her to go back to her kitchen where she belongs.

That'll really piss her off

>>2132939
She might be sensitive about her hair actually, what's the chance she's half European or something, that's why she has red hair, and that's why she's rebelling?

Oh goddammit I can see it now--that fucker MC is gonna see us getting beat to shit (or holding our own, on the off chance we give ourselves a crash course in kung fu while getting the shit kicked out of us) and is gonna jump the bitch and all three of us are gonna end up in detention. Then this whole mess is gonna bring us and the MC closer or whatever and gives us a common rival--this shit writes itself!

>>
>>2132929

Well, I guess it's time to fight fucking dirty, then. Bats aint shit when you got a bigger man bullrushing you and knocking you to the ground.
>>
>>2133042
It’s dyed, they say so
>>
Lets try to pull some arm chair psychology here
okay
so she's probably the daughter of a very important and busy buisness man who doesn't have time for family
So she wants attention
Which would probably explain her dying her hair and becoming a scourge to society
Its textbook but its also a anime so its probably that simple with some complications
>>
>>2133696
Have we considered just treating her like a human being?
You know, after this.
>>
>>2135857

Why should we? She isn't ACTING like a human being. She is acting like a caricature .
>>
>>2132929
We won't win with strength, but words can shatter her self worth.

As long as no one is watching, I would vote for the nastiest insults possible.
>>
>>2135928
I mean that is basically what she is, treating her as a human would be a step up all things considered.
>>
What if we try flirting with her? if this world has a anime tier logic then everything it's going to be ok, and maybe we can be friends with her, if this don't work, maybe a kick right in the cunt will do the work
>>
>>2137465
Lets stick with kicking her in the cunt and carrying her home, besides. We already got one crazy bitch that works on obsessive harem logic, not the best idea to cheat that just yet. Also considering we are on our ass with a bat to the gut.
>>
>>2135957
That's not gonna work. Frankly, I vote for >>2135857
>>
>>2137493
But Anon, you don't want to fix this girl life? the only thing she wants it's love, you can do it, fix her life with your love
>>
>>2137515
We aren't the harem protag...yet at any rate. Its asking for trouble and more importantly attention. Friends first, maybe getting her to calm her tits and be friends with our girl first. Gotta build that comrade to seduce us first, or at least get them to open up a threeway assistance to help bitchtits issues...if she isn't naturally a cunt to begin with. Rushing is bad, VERY bad. Especially considering the devil of this world is our brother.
>>
>>2137499
Yeah. Simply talking to her is the most rational decision here.
>>
>>2137525
I'm not sure our brother is the devil of this world, maybe he is another [Awaken] and is trying to push us to make his job, let's be honest, there's no evidence he is what he claim to be
>>
>>2137577
True, but he also knows what we are, which is a step up from what's going on here.

Bah. Some people here want us to preach to her while she is pummeling us.

I would like us to behave NOT like a demented character of an anime, and instead behave how a man would react if a crazy bitch ambushed you in real life, with her already gotten us on the ground.

Only realistic option is running away like a pussy or fighting like a man, not trying psychotherapy on her.
>>
>>2133240
Would be glorious
>>
>>2132929
> Kick her in the cunt
>>
>>2138538
I honestly gave up, lurking now.
>>
>>2138538
Actually fighting back does seem like the best thing to do.
>>
You people are fucking retarded.
>>
>>2138782
Well, we are participating in an anime quest...
>>
>>2138793
....point


To elaborate, I was referring how we handled the confrontation in the classroom. Instead of acting like a hotblooded teenager, we should have behaved like an adult which we are.
When she was going all with "what the fuck you're looking at", maybe doing something completely unexpected would have caught her completely off-guard. Like saying "sorry, I was just captivated by your beatiful hair". I'm sure she would've called us a faggot and become blowed us off but at least the aggression would have been gone.


A good rule to live by is that the most agressive approach must be left for when no other methods work.
>>
>>2138805
Not to mention I think it's pretty clear that if we try to fight, we're going to get beaten up. There's been no indication that we're physically fit enough to beat someone like this.
>>
>>2138841
I'm pretty sure that OP mentioned that in the fight we'd probably lose even though we are physically bigger. She has much more experience and skill, which is what actually matters in a fight.
>>
>>2138845
Anons wanted to feel badass and now we'll get beaten up by a girl.
>>
>>2138847
Only option is to try cheating really. Take the weapon, punch her in the tits, lure her into a bad postion etc.
>>
>>2138861
Isn't that how other delinquents would try to fight her? She'd be used to cheap shots and cheating by now.
>>
grab the cunt by the hair and swing her like a jump rope
>>
>>2138869
Maybe but it's not like we have any other options.
Although, we could potentially lure her into the sight of a teacher. Get her expelled.

It WILL bite us in the ass tho.
>>
>>2138925
Alerting a teacher may at least buy us some time to confront her on more even ground later.
>>
>>2138979
Aye. Time to learn how ta box!
>>
>>2138805
>sorry, I was just captivated by your beatiful hair
I bet you eat dick for breakfast while wearing a fedora.
>>
>>2138805
Complimenting a girl like that right in front of the girl that likes you
Anon, that's just as dumb as just insulting her
>>
If we get the chance in the fight go for maximum pain/damage. If she wants to fuck around with a bat take a fucking chunk out of her arm or something.
>>
>>2139108
You're trying to land us in juvie?
>>
>>2139110
dont be a pussy anon.
Everyone knows theres no juvie in anime.
>>
>>2139108
Nah that'll make everyone think we're dilquent on her level
We have to take the moral highground
>>
>>2139110
What this anon said >>2139114

Hell, most animes don't even show COPS, AT ALL, the characters might passby a Police Station or Police Booth, but that shit is either filled with pitch-black mobs or an empty ghost town
>>
Running in an hour or less
>>
You're rolling in the ground, holding your stomach. It doesn't feel like anything is ruptured. But you are definitely bruised bad. You fight your lunch struggling back up.
Nakahara stands over you. She holds the baseball bat over her shoulder. Looking down on you, she sneers.
"Not talking anymore?"

>Talk her out of it
>"Loose the bat, you coward."
>No talking, charge her!
>Write in

>>2139229

CUNT PUNT

>>2139229
"Loose the bat--gh. Fight fair and square."
You wince as the pain in your torso inflames once more.

"City boy, you seem to be misunderstanding. This isn't a fight! This is just your punishment."
She removes the bat from her shoulders, and swings down.

"Now -die-!"

>Roll away

You dodge by rolling away from the bat. Clang! The bat hits nothing but soil from behind you.

You try to stand, but
"Fu--!"
You collapse back to your knees. Rolling away took more out of you than you expected.

Nakahara stands there, bat on the ground. She's glaring. Waiting for your next move.

>Run. You're faster than she is carrying a bat.
>Charge. Rush her down.
>>
>>2139285
>Charge. Rush her down.
A bat doesn't slow you down and we're already winded.

>>2139285
Grab a rock and throw it at her, she's going to try to dodge it and when she does it, we punch her in the face or something

>Charge. Rush her down.
Might as fucking well. At least we could get lucky and get her pinned, get her to calm her tits.
>>
>>2139285
>Charge. Rush her down.
With your injury, there is no way you could run far and fast enough to escape her. Instead, you muster all your strength and charge her.
"Grrrraaaaah--!"
Without meaning to, you let out an animalistic roar. Nakahara brings up her bat, but she is clearly surprised.

You rush in--
And get under the swing! You caught her off-guard! Now's your chance. You--

>Throw a hook to the face
>Tackle her to the ground
>>
>>2139317
>>Tackle her to the ground

>>2139317

>>2139317
>Tackle her to the ground
>>
>>2139317
>tackle here to the ground
>>
>>2139317
>Tackle her to the ground

You duck, and grab her by the torso.
"You little--!"
You hear the bat fall to the ground behind you. You've knocked her off her feet, and down to the ground.

"Let go of me, you shit!"
Hitting the ground back first does not stop her. Now she's scratching and pounding your head as you try and pin her down.

You finally grab a hold of both of her wrists. You hold them down by her head. She struggles under you, but with you straddling her torso, she couldn't do much.
You're both breathing heavy. Nakahara looks you up and down, but in the position she's in, she couldn't do much. You're still the bigger person.

"So..." she says, smirking. "What are you going to do now, city boy? Are you going to rape me or something?"

>Maybe I will...
>Shut up and listen to me
>>
>>2139355
>Shut up and listen to me

"I'm sorry we got off on the wrong foot, would you like to start over? Hello, my name is Yamada. Let's get along!"

>>2139355
Seriously? A fucking bat? Are you trying to go to prison?
>>
>>2139355
>Shut up and listen to me
"Shut up and listen for one second, will you?!" You grip her by the wrists hard. You don't even realize until she was wincing. That's right, you almost forgot. She's just a girl too. You let up, but still keep your grip on her.

"Why are you acting this way? You may not be an adult but you sure as hell are not a kid anymore either. Dyeing your hair, beating people up...why?"
"Don't patronize me, you son of a bitch," she spits back. "Weren't you acting all childish earlier as well?"
"You were insulting me. Therefore, I had to stand my ground."
"Is that so? Well, that's just what I'm doing too. I'm just standing my ground.

"Listen here. You don't know me. You don't get to act all high and mighty just because you're living the wonderful high school life. Don't push that shit on me. What do you even know, city boy?"

She stops struggling and closes her eyes. "Now let me go, if you know what's good for you."

What's good for you...?

You just noticed that she's now struggling more than ever. And in her eyes is no longer anger nor killing intent, but fear.
"You fucking idiot! I told you to let me go already! You're going to get us both in deep shit!"

You pause. What in the world is she talking about?
You then realize the sounds coming closer to you. Multiple rustling shoes, approaching.
"Sensei, over here...I think I heard some people fighting..."

You stand away from her. She pushes you away, and you stumble into the ground.
But there's no time to sit here tending your wounds. Getting seen fighting under school grounds can very well be basis for expulsion.
"What the hell are you doing, city boy?!"

You were dazed for a second, but immediately regain your bearings. You stand up to sprint away--
"Guoh!"
But hobble back to the ground on all fours. The pain in your stomach is intense. Your legs feel like jelly from the pain.

You slowly start to accept your fate. Yes, there's no escaping now. You start thinking about how you're going to even face the teachers and explain all these, and the disappointed looks of your parents, of the class rep, of Hanazawa...

"You useless piece of--!"
You feel her grab you by the collar. Before you can even get back to all twos, she drags you and runs away from the teachers.
You struggle at first, but then you realize.

She's helping you escape.

You snake your way in between corridors and nosy students, until you finally make your way outside the school building.
There, Nakahara offloads you by throwing you back to the ground. All this time she was holding and dragging you by the collar.

"...Looks like it's good." She says, while peeking behind the wall.

>That hurt, you know

>Thank you.

>>2139503

>>
>>2139531
She was scared of getting caught by a teacher
>>
>>2139536
She just got back from suspension, right?

She'll probably do something dirty if we try and hold her half-assedly as we are now so this works well.

>>2139434

>>2139540

>>2139505
>Thank you.
"Er, I don't know how to say this...since you did almost kill me with a baseball bat...and you didn't have to drag me by the collar and throw me on the ground...but Nakahara-san, thanks."
She shakes her head. "You getting caught will just get me into deeper trouble. I wasn't doing it to help you or anything."
"But still...thanks. You didn't have to do it all. I think, you're really a good person deep inside, Nakahara..."

"Oh, give me a break..." She laughs. "What is it with you and trying to 'help' me? I don't need your damn help. I even swung a bat on you when you weren't ready."
"But as you said, it was a punishment, so I kind of understand--"

"No. What I did was underhanded, even for my standards. But you still didn't back down and made a one sided beating a fight. So iff anything, you earned my respect, Yamada."
Before you could respond to her, she leaves while raising her hand.
"Wait, where are you going?" You ask her.
"Preparations. I have a feeling I'll get into a big fight tomorrow. Get that checked out or something. Now don't fucking talk to me again."

She leaves like a samurai returning to her travels. Despite everything, you still do think that there's something underneath there...

Now, about getting home...

>cont'd
>>
>>2139505
>Thanks.
>>
>>2139565
You make your way straight home. You left your things behind on the desk, but you don't even know if you could *climb* stairs with your injury. You stagger your way home, grateful that there aren't many students there to see you.
You push the door open and stumble in. Your uniform's a mess, but you made it back home.

"Welcome home, Ken-chan! I'm just making dinner."

You hear your dad cooking in the kitchen. How should you act?

>Act like nothing's happened

>>2139578

>Tell your dad you're hurt bad
How many times did you get your ass kicked to get mom?
>>
>>2139578
"Dad..."
"Ken-chan, you look terrible! What happened?"

You enter the kitchen and stagger into a chair. Your dad leaves behind his cooking to see how you're doing.

"I, er, I fell down the stairs at school..."
"Is that so? How do you feel right now? Are you hurt anywhere?"
"I don't think I broke any bones or anything...but I did, er, fall on my stomach. I think it's bruised..."

Your dad raises his brow. He seems suspicious, but he doesn't voice out his objections.
"Alright. Do you feel like eating anything, Ken-chan? Do you need first aid?"
"I don't think I could keep food down...and yes, first aid I kind of need..."

He nods and heads to the refrigerator.
"Alright. Here, put some ice on that, I think that'll help. I'll make some porridge too...Ah, you better wait for your mother on the couch, Ken-chan."
"For mom? Why?"
"When it comes to treating injuries, she's better than me."
You nod, and head over to the couch. You lay down, and before you know it, fall asleep from exhaustion...

-------

You wake to fire in your stomach.
"HOT!"
"Pipe down, Ken. It's just cream."

It takes you a few seconds to recover your senses. You're lying down on the couch, with your shirt off. Beside you is your mom, both hands on your stomach, and she looks annoyed.
"Lay down already. I can't massage you when you're standing up like that."
"...Yes, mom."
You lay back down again. You feel your mother rub down the bruise on your torso. You glance down, and see that the bat left a pretty big welt behind.
"So Ken."
"Yes, mom?"
"Who beat you up?"

>I wasn't beaten up
>...How'd you know?
>>
>>2139630

I gave pretty good too, I think I won.
>>
>>2139630
>>I wasn't beaten up

>>2139630
Ah you know just someone making a stupid decision, helped out a girl in the process. Took a bat to the ribs though.

"It's not important. I handled it."

Don't worry about it mom, it was a... heated debate with a new friend
>>
>>2139630
There were 20 of them with bats, and definitely not a girl
>>
>>2139630
>...How'd you know?
Please don't call the school. I'd end up in just as much trouble as the guy I fought with for punching him back, and I believe we actually managed to somewhat come to an understanding by the end of it all. I don't think we'll fight again.
>>
>>2139630
>>2139645
Second
>>
>>2139630
"Not important. I think I managed to talk things out with them."

Alternatively, say who and how and why, but try to get her to agree not to get the girl in trouble. She seems genuinely worried about getting in trouble at school again, even if that didn't stop her from doing all of this.

"I wasn't really beaten up, mom. You, er, you shoulda seen the other guy."
"Really? I heard a remarkably different story from your father earlier..."

She says this as she squeezes your torso.
"O-O-Ow!"
"You lie to your parents now? Ken-kun?"
"I-It wasn't like that, mom! I just didn't want to worry dad, that's all! Owow!"

She sighs, and then resumes wiping the cream on your torso. Though it does burn with every stroke, the cooling sensation it leaves behind soothes your injury.
"You seem to have fought an awfully big guy, Ken. Why, he has the fist the size of a baseball bat."
"Ahaha, yeah..."

You grip the couch as your mom massages the bruise carefully. It makes you want to throw up the porridge you just had.
"Mom," you decide to ask a question to keep your mind off the pain.
"What is it Ken?"

"You seem to know a lot about bruises and first aid, mom..."
She glances at you, before returning her focus on your bruise.

"I think idiocy runs in your father's bloodline. Honestly, when he was your age, he got into a lot of fights as well. And it was me who treated his wounds."
Interesting. This is the first time you've heard of your mom talking about her relationship with dad. So they were highschool sweethearts?
"Was dad a delinquent back then?"
"No," your mom, apparently finishing up the treatment, reaches for a towel. "Like I said, he was just an idiot."

Before you could ask her to elaborate further, your mom stands up.
"I'll ask your father to help you to your room. But don't attend classes tomorrow, you'll need time to recuparate. I'll call your advisor, so rest up for now."
"W-Will you tell them about me getting in a...y'know?"
"No. Fighting is a part of every boy's childhood, even if schools don't think so."
"That's a pretty brutal way of thinking, mom..."
"Is it? Battle has bred many a fine man."

She smiles as she walks away cooly.
"Just look at your dad."

With your mother gone, you are left alone in the living room. With your injuries, it would be impossible to jog tomorrow morning, and you seem to be excused from school for tomorrow.

You decide to rest. The faster you could get back into the swing of things, the better.

>cont'd
>>
Shit our brother is gonna show up and mock us isn't he
>>
>>2139704
Next morning. The injury in your stomach is so tender you couldn't even stand up. You glance at the clock. 7:30. Around this time, you should be headed for school, but instead you are confined to the bed.
You try to stand up but the sheer pain in tensing your core is causing you to wince and sweat. No good. You should really just be resting instead.

You hear the sound of footsteps from outside. Then, a knock.
"Ken-chan! You have a visitor!"

You furrow your brow. That's impossible. No one should know you aren't going to school today except your parents.

"Who is it, dad?"
"Nii-san, it's me."

"...Murakami?"
The door opens, and in walks your jogging mate, still wearing her multiple layer jogging clothes. Her brown hair is a bit frazzled, but not as much as when you were jogging together. Looks like she didn't go the full route today.
"Miss, can you keep Ken-chan some company for a moment? I'll just prepare some refreshments."

She bows, and your dad makes his way down to the kitchen.
Murakami paces around your room, studying it.
"You've got a pretty amazing room, Nii-san. It's so...clean."

Looks like that's her way of telling you it's bland and boring.

"You know, Murakami, you really should be completing the routine we had set up. I mean, it's all unofficial, yes, but for you to get healthier, you need to push yourself a bit beyond your limits."
Murakami sits on your swivel chair, and spins herself around. "Do I look like I'm unhealthy to you, Nii-san?"
"Not at all. In fact, you look normal to me. But waking up so early and wearing so many layers of clothes...well, I assumed it was for your fitness. Did I guess wrong?"

She smiles as she fixes her glasses. "Not at all, Nii-san. But it's so hard to stick to -our- routine when you're not there."
"Well, that's because...wait, first of all, how'd you find out where I live ?"

"You always separate by the corner, so I decided to follow it and ask if anybody had seen you. I thought you might've gotten lost or something. I talked to this guy and described what you usually wear, and it turns out it was your dad. What a coincidence, huh, Nii-san?"
She stands up from the chair and stands by the side of the bed.
"By the way, Nii-san. What happened to you? Are you sick? You're not pale, but you do seem a bit sweaty."
