Moon: [Guide]

“Yo, Mitsuki!”

“Takeru!?”

.

.

Lunch break the next day.

Takeru showed up before me.

.

.

“Y, You’re really going to help me break Misuzu’s curse?”

“Yeah! I might not be able to help you directly since I’m just a Gift Positive but I can help you find your guy.”

“Takeru…… thank you.”

“You can thank me after we lift Fukamori’s curse right.”

.

.

Saying so, Takeru smiles at me.

It’s just a feeling but strangely enough, he made me feel that I can truly rely on him.

Just like Otou-sama, he gives off the atmosphere of a strong and dependable man.

.

.

“Then how about we start with Mitsuki’s class? You mind taking the lead?”

“Of course.”

“Alright. I will be in your care.”

.

.

Seeing Takeru being so polite in the strangest place, my cheeks loosened a little.

No, I have to concentrate.

Guiding him, I stepped into the classroom.

.

.

“Mi, Mi, Mi, Mi, Mitsuki’s with a man!!!!!?”

“Wha, stop that, Emi!?”

.

.

The first to raise her voice was Emi.

She spotted me the moment I came in…….

.

.

“Is, Is he your boyfriend……?”

“B, Boyfriend!? N, No! It’s not like that alright!? W, We just met yesterday you know!?”

“Red face, flustered, this is fishy.”

.

.

[Nishishishi] As though she just found a new toy, Emi deviously laughs.

Even if I deny it, she probably won’t believe me.

I never expected to be teased the same way I teased Towa, because of the same man no less.

.

.

“Ossu! Mitsuki’s boyfriend!”

“Hey, Emi!?”

“B, Boyfriend!? M, Me!?”

“Oh, Mr.boyfriend is blushing too. You have a chance, Mitsuki.”

“Quit it, Emi!”

.

.

I tried to stop Emi but it seems she has no intention to stop.

.

.

“Mr.Boyfriend! What’s your name?”

“T, Takeru…….”

“Oh, Takeru huh. Sup, call me Emi, kay?”

“Yeah, nice to meet you……..”

.

.

Overwhelmed by Emi’s enthusiasm, Takeru could only go along.

It was the moment when the hierarchy was established.

.

.

“Nn…..?”

.

.

Takeru looked at Emi’s face and suddenly stopped moving.

.

.

“What’s wrong, Takeru?”

“…..no, it’s nothing.”

“?”

“I’m just a little surprised seeing Emi’s face.”

.

.

Emi doesn’t seem to understand why her face would give a surprise and she cocked her head in confusion.

Since Takeru said that it’s nothing, it’s probably the case though……

.

.

“What, What? Takeru~? Did you fall for me?”

“Ahh, nope, you don’t have to worry about that.”

“How cheeky………let’s teach this kid a lesson, Mitsuki.”

“I won’t do it alright. Besides, we are in the same grade………”

.

.

Emi has a tendency to say whatever she wants so without Haruka to stop her, she always goes on and on like this.

.

.

“Which class are you in, Takeru?”

“Class 5…..?”

“……ahh, the same class as Hii-kun huh.”

“Hii-kun?”

“Don’t mind me.”

.

.

She said that last one with a smile.

Is there a Hii-kun in Takeru’s class?

.

—-Akechi Hideyori?

.

…………nah.

Certainly not.

Emi and that guy are just too different. I don’t see how she would be connected to him.

.

.

“So? Why did Mitsuki bring Takeru here?”

“We’re looking for someone, kind of. We’re looking for a Gift Holder who can break a curse. Do you have someone like that in mind, Emi?”

“A person who can break curses? Why would you come to me for that……”

“R, Right……”

“Tarzan does seem like the type that knows lots about curse and magic stuff though?”

“That’s just your impression of him isn’t it…….”

.

.

I personally see him as a wild person myself.

.

.

“Okay, serious talk, I don’t think he’s the guy you’re looking for, his Gift is specialized for a fight after all.”

“Rather, where did you get all this information about other people’s Gifts? The other day you told me about Nakayama and Muranishi too……”

“We’re in the same class after all……I just heard the others talking about Nakayama. You just don’t pay enough attention, Mitsuki.”

“It’s my fault……?”

“Well, if you already have such a nice boyfriend then I can see why you wouldn’t care about others though.”

“I told you, Takeru and I are not like that…….”

“Yeah, yeah, thanks for the meal.”

.

.

While I was having a back-and-forth with Emi, Takeru touched my shoulder and shook his head.

It seems he’s given up on correcting Emi.

After excusing ourselves from Emi, Takeru and I went back out to the hallway.

.

.

“You sure we don’t have to talk to Tarzan?”

“Are you that interested in him!?”

“I mean, it’s a Gift specialized for fighting, I want to see…….”

“What are you, his fanboy!? Rather, Tarzan is taking a break right now so he’s not at school.”

.

.

It seems that Takeru also has a strong interest in Gifts.

I can understand the longing for Gifts.

When I was a Gift Negative, I was also envious of the Gift Holders.

.

.

“That said, I’m sorry about earlier…….Emi is always messing around like that…….”

“It didn’t bother me…Besides, there’s someone like her in my class so I’m already used to that type……..”

“?”

.

.

At that time, I didn’t get what Takeru means.

But when I visited his class, I’d come to understand the feelings behind his words……

———–

Author Note: In the game, Emi did not exist yet in the first game (She only appeared in the second)

In her initial portrayal, Emi was a shadowy portrait of Female Student A.

She played the role of the friend who made fun of Mitsuki.

.

.

In regard to Hii-kun, the depiction here is intentionally vague.

.

.

.

Next up, Mitsuki visits Takeru’s class…..
