Escape Galge Chapter 24 (end)
Warm sunlight and a gentle breeze flow into the serene classroom from the open window.
There’s no one around. I’m alone.
’If this is the game, it’s the day my favourability rating raises’… that thought often crossed my mind the year before.
I’m now a second-year and can be termed『senpai』.
The people I call『senpai』will graduate and be gone a year later.
… Aoi-senpai will graduate too, huh.
“Fu~aa. He’s late.”
We promised to watch a movie at the internet cafe today.
I can’t wait to watch the horror movie I’ve been looking forward to, so what is he doing!
“… I’ll scare you again, hmpf.”
Laughter wells up when I imagine his pathetic appearance as he jumps up.
Still, the weather’s really good.
One can even call it the perfect weather for afternoon naps.
Aa, it’s really comfortable… I’m falling asleep.
It’s already too late by the time that thought crosses my mind.
… I fell asleep.
It doesn’t feel like much time has passed, but my eyelids are heavy.
What, there’s a comfortable feeling.
My hair is being brushed?
Is it senpai?
I’m wide awake, but for one reason or the other I continue pretending to be asleep.
“… Senpai, what you are doing, hm?”
“!? Kii, you were awake? … T-this is…”
It’s been a year since senpai confessed to me and I rejected him.
There’s no change in our relationship.
Howbeit, senpai’s ‘sheep clothing’ came off a little and he’s currently about done transforming into a stalker-like pervert who tries to make me tie twin tails.
“Kii, I’ve a request.”
“What is it?”
“Just once is fine, can you tie twin tails…”
Do you like twin tails that much?
Is anyone fine as long as they have twin tails!
Am I not cute if I don’t tie twin tails!
What a rude person, I’ll definitely not tie twin tails.
“… It’s about time though, isn’t it.”
“It is nothing, let’s go.”
I won’t say what I’m referring to, but a part of me slightly regrets my words.
I may be obstinate but I’ve forgotten that I’m also hasty.
Let’s tease him more than usual today.
“The movie today is horror and is said to have splatters so it will be thrilling.”
“Splatters!? Kii, there’s something I want to tell you today… can we leave that till next time?”
“It won’t work even if you say that now and negate it by dragging, you know.”
“That’s not it, I really have something to say! As expected, watching splatter while talking is… the mood will disappear, or so to speak…”
Is it a result of the『system』if the protagonist and the capturable character ties a knot?
What is the『system』?
Is it destiny?
Is it inevitability?
“Things like that don’t matter. As long as I’m happy.”
Perhaps the『Feather of Destiny』descends upon every lovebird without their knowing.
