11. Please listen to what other people say
It was the same as the other day, Sayama’s words were so strange.
Moreover. he said it so seriously. Even what he just said, it sounded as if he wanted to say, “You’re a really bad guy”.
『“……. Atsushi-san. For the time being, let’s punch that person once.”』
『”Well, I can understand your feeling, but stop it. It’ll make the situation worse.”』
While rejecting Yuri’s proposal, Atsushi was somehow managed to arrange some words.
“I didn’t cheat. Stop having such a selfish delusion.”
“Delusion? What are you saying? I just said the truth. How come you got a score that high if not by cheating.”
If it’s like this, I can’t just talk it through normally. No matter what I say, the impression that “Atsushi Yamagami is a fool” is too strong in him, I can’t do anything about it.
『”OK. Atsushi-san. Let’s throw this ‘trash’ out of the window.”』
『”Like what I always say, please stop making such an extreme proposal.”』
『”It’s okay, don’t worry. This is just the second floor, so he won’t die. It may be just a little painful.”』
『”It’s not okay at all, isn’t it?”』
Yuri’s irritation was gradually increasing, and her words and actions, or rather, her voice in her heart, became even more extreme.
However, in terms of irritation, Atsushi was the same.
“… I don’t care what kind of person do you think I am. Still, saying something completely unfounded like that is just too much, don’t you think so?”
Unintentionally, Atsushi said such a word.
Sure, he felt unpleasant, however, what he did was a bad move for persuading another person.
“Unfounded? Who cares, Anyway, it’s wrong for someone like you together with Shirasawa-san!”
Sayama was controlled by his anger.
His words were like the tantrums of elementary school students.
Did he really hate seeing Atsushi, the most hated person in school, with Yuri, rather than himself, one of the guys in the top caste in the class? Or did he seriously worried for Yuri, as he thought that being near Atsushi would never be good for her? No one knew the truth, but, at the moment, not only Atsushi but also Yuri, they felt so uncomfortable and thought that Sayawa was annoying.
…Swearing or yelling here won’t help.
So, what should I do?
“Oiii. What are you guys making noise about?”
Suddenly, there was a familiar female voice.
Looking back, there was a woman in a jersey with her unkempt maroon hair tied up at the back.
Momoko Saito… A teacher at this school in charge of Atsushi’s class.
“I was thinking about what you’re doing in the classroom… Oi, Sayama. Didn’t you say something interesting just now? Yamagami cheated at the test or something like that.”
“Y-Yes. I mean, it’s so strange that Yamagami gets more than 90 points. There’s no way he got that other than by cheating…”
“No no, that’s not the case. I was in charge of this class when it was the math exam. What? Do you want to say I overlooked someone cheating?”
Sayama was told that and he got panicked.
Saito had a big sigh and continued her words.
“Rather, Sayama. You were in the same class as Yamagami during the first year, right?”
“Yes, what is it?”
“Well… What are you talking about now? Yamagami has been doing well in mathematics since the first year, you know that too, right?”
“Eh… No way…”
“Really, that’s true. If you were in the same class, you should know that much.”
Sayama began fluster with those words.
On the other hand, Saito spoke to him as if to chase after him.
“Rather, Sayama. Are you really in a position to say about another person’s score? I heard that your score for this test was pretty close.”
“Well, it’s not only about test scores. But, before you say something about other people, please look at yourself first, okay?”
That was the last blow to shut Sayama.
He couldn’t hold up to what he said. Once his score was known to others, the fact that he wasn’t doing good at the test, his act of treating others as a cheater just seemed as if he wanted to interfere with Atsushi and Yuri’s studies.
Realizing that, Sayama couldn’t say anything.
And Saito, she didn’t say anything to Sayama anymore.
“It’s end here. The one who have club activities should go quickly. The one who want to go back home should go home quickly.”
While saying so, Saito left the classroom.
Before leaving completely, she looked at Atsushi for a moment and smiled with a bitter smile.
Atsushi, on the other hand, returned it with a small nod so that no one would notice.
In this way, the turmoil caused by Sayama was subsided.
As for Sayama, the people around him were following him, so nothing happened after that.
Atsushi couldn’t think that it was all settled, and he became a little worried that something might happen soon.
