“I let you see a strange side of me.”
“Rather, I always thought that you were a normal girl—not.”
She scowled at me.
“Let’s go back. If anyone sees us here, there will surely be a misunderstanding.”
Certainly. There would absolutely be strange rumors about a girl and a boy all by themselves in the dead of night.
Not to mention, our relationship was still iffy to begin with.
Slowly getting up, Horikita walked towards the entrance of the dorms.
“Hey… Are you really ok with how the study group went?”

“Why are you asking that? I proposed the study group in the first place. It’s not like you cared about it in the first place. Am I wrong?”
“I have a bad feeling. Or should I say, the other students seem to be planning something.”
“I don’t mind. I’m already used to it. Also, most of the students with red marks are with Hirata-kun. He’s good at studying, gets along with people, and can teach other people well, unlike me. This time, they should be able to barely clear the borderline. However, I judged it to be a waste of time to help them out myself. Until graduation, they’ll have to repeatedly try to not fail. It’d be really stupid to keep trying to cover for their failing marks every single time.”

“That’s what they decided to do; that has nothing to do with me. If they don’t approach Hirata-kun, they’ll just drop out soon enough. Of course, my goal is to get up to class A. However, that’s for my own sake, and not for anyone else. I don’t care what anyone else does. Rather, if cut down on people on this next midterm, only people who are necessary are left. It’ll be easier to get to class A. A win-win situation.”
I don’t think she’s wrong. In the first place, this crisis is bad for students who got red marks. However, I couldn’t help but continue the conversation with Horikita, who was strangely talkative.
“Horikita, isn’t that way of thinking incorrect?”
“Incorrect? Tell me which part is wrong. You’re not trying to say that there is no future for a person who abandons their classmates, right?”
“Calm down. I know you well enough that you wouldn’t understand what I’m saying.”
“Then why? There’s no merit in saving failures.”
