“Thank you for waiting, Misaki san.”

A week passed quickly after the meeting.

And it was the middle of a weekday. As soon as the fourth period class ended, Sakura came to me with a bag.

“Sorry to keep you waiting…class just finished, right? I’ve got a little time before I have to pick up and drop off.”

“I’m sure there’s no harm in getting ready early, right?”

“I’d like to give you some leeway, I’m not complaining.”

After lunch, the third shoot takes place.

Even though my schoolwork is my priority, I often shoot during the day because there are few scenes that I can shoot in the evening.

Therefore, it is not enough to shoot on holidays or after school, but rather to take classes until halfway through the day and then go straight to the shooting location.

Of course, this is done with the teacher’s permission.

“Hm? You two are leaving early again today?”

Then Aki comes in with a lunch box in hand.

Yamazaki was behind her with a pastry in his hand, probably for lunch as well.

“This is only the second time, okay?”

“For us, twice is a lot. I envy you, I want to leave early too !”

“I know, I want to skip work and go home legally, too !”

Well, I don’t doubt how you feel.

After all, I used to want to skip classes and school life because it was too much work.

“But I’ll make up for the classes I didn’t take during the summer vacation, you know?”

“Tsk, studying is a student’s duty.”

“I don’t understand why anyone would want to skip school.”

That’s a 180-degree turnaround.

“Oh, but wait…,,does that mean I won’t be able to play with Hiiyo chan during the summer vacation!?”

“It’s not like I can’t play, but I have to work, so the number of days is limited.”

“Damn it !”

“You can kneel all you want, but you’ll get dirty.”

Seeing the crumpled up collapse that expressed so much frustration, Sakura smiles bitterly.

I’m sure he remembers the feeling of being caught between the joy of being disappointed and the inconvenience of the expression so far. I understand how you feel.

“So, does Misaki have supplementary lessons during the summer vacation?”

“Well, not as much as Sakura, but yeah.”

However, it can’t be helped.

Even though my duty was to study, I didn’t want to waste the opportunity that came my way, and—


(I don’t know if I’ll get kicked out when Sakura’s there.)

There are things I have to do this time.

Frankly, this is something I have to prioritize even if I have to take make-up classes during the summer vacation.

“I didn’t think about it because it was so far ahead, but if I had gone through the trouble, I would have wanted to hang out with you two.”

“I’ll make money if you ask me. I’d like to have fun with you two, too.”

“If you let me know in advance, I’ll do my best to make arrangements.”

“Really !? Yay !”

Aki gets up and raises her hands in the air, revealing her joy.

Aki then started hugging Sakura, but seeing how the wry smile didn’t go away, she must be at a loss for a reaction this time.

“Come to think of it, when Misaki left early last time, Sakura san was absent from school, right?”

“Yes, she did.”

“And the fact that you were going to go home together this time means that……you two may have been working together.”

……I saw a person bend over for the first time in my life.

“What are you suddenly doing, Aki…”

“Don’t ask such things blindly ! There may be something confidential !”

Aki is surprisingly looking around.

It is true that as long as you are doing this as a job, you are not supposed to divulge any information that has not been made public.

If asked, they might have a hard time answering. I think she was aware of that and paid attention to it. Violence is also included.

“In such a situation, it is right to respond, [N-now wau, you’re leaving early for a date !?]”

Which textbook did you really look at to come to that answer?

Well, I admire her. I really do.

“Well, we are working together.”

“Anyway, you will be able to figure it out when I go home with Misaki san. It’s hard to disclose any more information than that.”

“Eh, so it’s not a date. That’s a shame.”

I feel the same.

“A-anyway, good luck, you two ! I don’t know what you’re doing, but I’m rooting for you !”

“Oh, thanks.”

“Fufu, thank you very much.”

After receiving Yamazaki’s words and replying, I stand up with the bag I’ve put together.

“Then, we’re going to go now.”

“Yes, Misaki san.”

As we left, we left the classroom saying, [See you tomorrow.]

I’m sure it was not my imagination that I received a lot of stares from my classmates at that time.

After all, we were leaving early together.

It is easy to imagine that their curiosity is piqued.

“Come to think of it, I haven’t seen Kisara recently.”

“I think Kisara san is busy with her work. The film we read last time is just about to be finished.”

“I see. Then I’ll send a message of support later. I want Kisara to do her best.”

“We will do our best, though.”

I went out into the hallway and saw Sakura walking beside me, smiling at me.

Students passing by stop and look at Sakura and freeze on the spot.

This is how popular and eye-catching this girl Sakura is.

“Yes, we will.”

I have a lot to think about and worry about.

But just for this moment, I was genuinely happy to be able to walk beside her.
