This will be a game that stirs under the surface between us and Kajita.

There are no rules, the odds are overwhelmingly in our favor, and failure is not an option.

–I’m good at anything.

I used to study aikido, and I have a longing for baritudo.

…… I don’t care about that, but it’s probably one of the reasons I’ve gotten into the habit of living everything like a game.

“What I’m trying to do is a very insidious way of doing things…”

“After all this time? Can you please stop because it’s going to make even me feel guilty?”

Tsukane didn’t have much to do with those insidious things, and I don’t want to make her feel that way.

I want Tsukane to stay clean …… I don’t want to taint the Tsukane I love.

I feel a sickening sense of protectiveness.

But since we’ve been childhood friends since I can remember, it’s natural that I don’t want her to change, isn’t it?

I definitely don’t think I’m making it personal …….

“That’s right, I’m sorry for Tsukane to be a part of this too. Is Kano okay?”

“Yes. Fights between girls can be insidious, so it’s okay”

She’s with Chihara, so she must have seen things like that.

“You’re so strong, I don’t know anything about it. I don’t want to poke you in the neck, so if I smell something like that, I run away…”

Tsukane says so with a half-smile.

The difference in consciousness between the two is easy to see.

“No, that’s fine. In fact, I’d rather have Tsukane on that side.”

“Muu, am I not good?”

This time, Tanba san asked that question with an unflattering look on her face.

..The story isn’t progressing.

Well, to avoid leaving a bad aftertaste, I’ll let you sort out your thoughts now.

“Kano probably felt more uncomfortable not knowing. I was worried earlier because I thought she was reluctant to be the one to actually do it.”

“Ah, I see… Fufu, Tomose-kun is so kind.”

Calling me kind is an exaggeration.

If I were a truly kind person, I would have done something like this without Tanba-san in the first place.

Then, after looking thoughtful, Tsukane asked Tanba-san.

“Aree, maybe you’re jealous?”

“Hey, Tsukane–“

“Just a little bit, you know?”

My words were interrupted and an affirmation was given.

That is itchy because the cause of my jealousy is me.

“No, I’m glad I were able to confirm your intentions. Even though it’s convenient for us, the method is rather complicated.”

“I think conscience is important. But if we win, the government army loses, and the rebel army…our justice becomes pure justice if we win, right?”

I don’t know about that phrase, but if we …… succeed, we’ll be right.

That’s certainly true…….It’s okay, even if it’s insidious.

“Thank you. It makes me feel better to hear you say that.”

“You’re welcome.”

No one will get hurt. …… It’s just that one of the boys will get cheated.

Even Kajita would be better off giving up.

He’s in a situation where he can’t back down, and he’s only being stubborn because he’s halfway proud.

“Really Tomose still can’t convey his feelings unless he says it in words… Well, I know that, and I can say this as someone who failed in my confession. I’m sorry, I forgot about it just now.”

“Y-yeah”

Suddenly, Tsukane said to herself and regretted it.

I wonder if …… she is just as skeptical as I am.

No, I’d better stop the strange speculation at this point.

We need to start talking.

The three of us brainstormed.

“Well, then, I’d like to hear your ideas on how to fish Kajita out.”

“Without a motive, there’s no way we’ll be able to do it, even if we make contact.”

“In other words, before Kajita trusts us, he will suspect that we have no reason to be on his side.”

“That’s what I mean. So, first of all, the fake account must have a motive …… to cooperate with Kajita, in other words, there must be a background setting, right?”

An account that does not reveal its name.

From Kajita’s point of view, it would obviously look suspicious.

Just in case, it means that we also have to prepare a reason ahead of time why we don’t want to reveal our identity.

“I thought of two ways to convince Kajita. One is that he is in love with Tanba-san, just like Kajita.”

“Ah, I had an idea! All we have to do is pretend and make Tomose fall in love with him.”

“I’m not gay…”

Tsukane said something horrible.

It’s true that one solution is to cage the wounded boys, but in that case it wouldn’t have to be me.

“If Tsukane wants to do it, why not?”

“I definitely don’t want to do it. Why should I flirt with a boy I don’t like?”

I seriously reject it.

I understand what they want to say ……, but I don’t agree with it.

If that was the case, why was she trying to get me to do it?

I wanted to complain, but I didn’t want to be distracted from the main point by something unnecessary.

“Yeah. Sorry, forget it.”

“Somehow, You’re kind of treating me like crap, aren’t you?”

“I’m really sorry.”

Tsukane sulked. Now, I wonder if it’s my fault. ……

When I show my troubled face, Tanba-san gives me a helping hand.

“Well, well, well, just forgive Tsukane-san. So what’s the second way?”

“Cooperate for other purposes.”

“Hmm, what exactly?”

“Well, one idea is that you don’t like Chihara Shion.”

Unlike the former, this one is easier to make people trust you, but the key is whether or not they are willing to cooperate with you.

I thought that was a good thing, but I noticed that Tanba-san’s eyebrows twitched.

She might be a little uncomfortable because she would probably have to speak ill of Chihara in carrying out the operation.

“Are you against it, Tanba-san?”

“No, no, I think the latter idea is better when it comes to safety. Besides, ……”

“And?”

“I was a little lost, but I know Shion to some extent, so I can corroborate the reality of what the fictional character had been worried about until now.”

If Tanba-san cooperates with me, does that mean she can create a background for the lie?

Yeah, if Tanba-san is okay with it, I’ll feel free to use it.

We should use the information that is available.

“Isn’t that a good thing? If you have a reason for not wanting Chihara to notice you, then it makes sense that you don’t want to reveal your true identity.”

After all, it would be perfect if we could show that the other party is a top-caste gal …… who can’t afford to reveal her true identity.

The settings were quickly fixed.

“In that case, let’s decide to ask for his cooperation in overthrowing Chihara Shion.”

The finished setup was as follows.

Like Kajita, I am a 2nd year male student, and I had been burned by Chihara last year.

After that, I worked with other comrades who had the same experience to uncover Chihara’s secret, but Chihara’s popularity was so great that my comrades gave up and disappeared. However, I am the only one who has not given up. ……

It is very realistic, isn’t it?

Next, here is an outline of the strategy.

First, we would encourage Kajita. Tomorrow, we will put a letter in Kajita’s shoe box with the id of the account we have prepared, along with a letter of complaint.

He will be offended by the same approach, but the important thing is to keep him interested.

If he caught on, he would offer to cooperate with us as a person who also has a firm intention.

“Okay, let’s go with this plan. That being said, can you give me a way to contact you?”

“Can’t help it huh Go ahead.”

The plan was in place, but as I said before, it would be tough to meet the girls in person every time.

Tanba-san showed me her contact information and I registered it on the app.

Now, all that was left was to make the operation a success …… After this, I sent the two girls home and wrote a letter to Kajita.

Of course, I printed it out in an elaborate font, not in handwriting that would leave handwriting marks.

It doesn’t matter how I write it, because the important thing is that it is a letter.

–I hope I can successfully draw his interest. ……
