may 24

if Arata is Yuki's closest friend

Yuki: Since I woke up a bit early today, I'll try going to class by a different route than usual.
Yuki: Huh? Arata-san?
Yuki: What is he doing kneeling in that corner?
Yuki: Wait, there's a sandbox under the eaves. But why...
Yuki: A~ra~ta-san.
Arata: Morning, Ace-kun.
Yuki: Good morning. What are you doing? With a scoop and plastic bag...
Yuki: Are you taking sand?
Arata: Wrong. I'm cleaning.
Yuki: You're cleaning a sandbox?
Arata: It's not a sandbox. This is the litter box.
Yuki: Litter box?
Arata: Right, of all the school cats.
Yuki: I see, so there's a litter box here.
Yuki: But, why are you cleaning it, Arata-san?
Yuki: This sort of chore seems like it would be handed around to the student council.
Arata: Well, it's because Arata made this litter box here.
Yuki: You did?
Arata: That's right. The one over there is Maro's litter box.
Yuki: So there's one for Maro too.
Yuki: But why did you make a litter box?
Yuki: I understand Maro's, but...
Arata: Mm. I guess because there's a lot of cats.
Yuki: Huh...
Arata: When I first got here, I was surprised there were a lot of cats.
Arata: At first I wondered whose pets they were, but it seemed they weren't.
Yuki: That's right. It seems Kuya-san also feeds the cats.
Yuki: Do you feed them too?
Arata: I don't. There's a lot of people who feed them.
Yuki: Well, I think they have enough food.
Arata: Yeah, that's no worry.
Arata: Well, they're fine with food, but I wondered what they did about the bathroom.
Arata: When I looked around, everyone used that clump of bushes as the bathroom.
Arata: And then I thought, why don't I try making one where people can't see it?
Yuki: And so you made it.
Arata: Yeah.
Arata: And then all the cats started using it.
Arata: Every day after morning practice and stuff, I take a little time and clean it.
Yuki: That's a good idea. I'm sure the cats are happy to have a clean litter box.
Arata: Yeah. Although maybe nobody minds that there's some slightly stinky bushes.
Arata: I minded that a bit.
Yuki: You like cleanliness, don't you?
Arata: Mm. There's that too, but I just felt like it.
Arata: A long time ago, a stray cat family settled down near my house.
Arata: And at first everyone gave them food and was affectionate to them.
Arata: But soon the number of cats increased, and they started to do their business all around there.
Arata: Everyone chased them away, saying it's dirty, it's annoying.
Yuki: Oh no...
Arata: I thought I didn't want that to happen to the school cats here.
Arata: But it was possible.
Arata: So, I wanted to do what I could so that wouldn't happen.
Yuki: I see. That's important.
Arata: First of all, giving them food up until now, it's like saying 'you can stay here.'
Arata: So I think it's cruel to later suddenly take away their home.
Yuki: Right...
Arata: That's why I do it.
Arata: It's not something that someone asked of me. It's just for my own satisfaction.
Yuki: I see...

(decision #1)
That's surprising.

decision #1a: That's surprising.)
Yuki: That's kind of surprising.
Arata: Is it?
Yuki: Yes...
Yuki: Since you seem like you do things your own way, at your own pace.
Arata: Bingo. That's right!
Yuki: It's surprising that someone like you would clean the litter box for the cats.
Arata: Hyahaha.
Arata: But I'm not really doing it for anyone.
Arata: I want to, so I just do it.
Arata: Oh. But after all, maybe it is for the cats.
Yuki: That's right.
Arata: But that doesn't mean it's because the cats asked me to.
Arata: Hyahahahahaha. After all, it's self-satisfaction.
Yuki: Haha.
(Yuki: Arata-san really laughs a lot.)
(Yuki: It kind of makes me wanna laugh too.)
Yuki: Can I help with something?
Arata: It's fine. I'm already done.
Arata: Besides, this sort of thing can be done by one person. It's fine, it's fine.

I understand.

decision #1b: I understand.)
Yuki: I understand.
Arata: You do?
Yuki: Yes.
Yuki: I also understand cleaning for self-satisfaction.
Yuki: Since I became student council president, I've been cleaning here and there a lot.
Arata: But that's the student council's job, that's not self-satisfaction.
Arata: Weren't you just doing a good job at your work?
Yuki: Well, it was because it was work.
Yuki: But I really like it.
Yuki: Actually, yesterday, Joker-san left the planning and management of the ball tournament to the student council.
Arata: Yay, that's good. So, a ball tournament planned by the student council. Are you going to do something special?
Yuki: Yes. The dish the winning team chooses will be incorporated into the cafeteria menu. Any dish they like!
Arata: Wow, sounds interesting.
Yuki: Arata-san, if you like, please participate too.
Arata: Alright. I have a dish I want to add.
Yuki: Alright!
Arata: I look forward to it.
Arata: But isn't the student council going to get busier and busier?
Yuki: That's right. Work having to do with school events and stuff like this might increase.
Yuki: But I want to continue chores like I've been doing now.
Arata: Hmm. You have strange tastes.
Yuki: Haha. Maybe.
Yuki: Did the broken thing get fixed, did the dirty thing get cleaned, I worry about what happened later.
Yuki: If it got broken or dirty again, I think I want to go back and do it properly.
Arata: Wooow. Are you a perfectionist, Ace-kun?
Yuki: That's not it.
Yuki: It's just that, this is my school.
Yuki: It's better for the place you're at to be comfortable, right?
Arata: That's right.
Yuki: So, Arata-san. Cleaning the cat litter, let me help too.
Arata: Huh?
Yuki: I want to help for my own satisfaction too.
Arata: Hyahaha. Thanks. You're a nice person, Ace-kun.
Yuki: No, you don't have to say that.
Arata: But it's fine, it's fine. It's not a big thing, Arata is fine by himself.
Yuki: But it's every day, isn't it? Isn't that hard?
Arata: Well, of course there's days I can't do it.
Arata: One or two days can't be helped.
Arata: I'm kinda relaxed about doing it.

Arata: Oh, but...
Yuki: What is it?
Arata: If Arata wasn't here anymore.
Arata: Can I ask you to do it for me then?
Yuki: Of course!
Arata: Thank you.
Arata: Then, one piece of advice.
Yuki: Is there something I need to know?
Arata: Yeah. If you do it in your uniform, you should have a change of shirt, maybe.
Arata: Since the cuffs of those uniforms get dirty easily.
Yuki: It's because they're so big, these sleeves.
Arata: Right, right.
Arata: Oh. When Arata gets dirty, he changes into a clean jacket.
Yuki: Not a uniform?
Arata: Jacket.
Yuki: I see...
(Yuki: Now that he's mentioned it, I haven't seen Arata-san in a uniform.)
(Yuki: I kind of want to see, maybe.)
Wakasama: Meow.
Arata: Wakasama, welcome back.
Wakasama: Meow.
Yuki: Wakasama.
(Yuki: So this cat is the leader of the school cats that Arata-san mentioned before.)
Yuki: Arata-san is cleaning your litter box.
Wakasama: Meow.
Arata: He knows, he says.
Arata: Come on, Ace-kun, let's go.
Yuki: Huh?
Arata: Come on, Wakasama, I've fixed it all up so go ahead, go ahead.
Wakasama: Meow.
Arata: Come on, come on, let's go, let's go, so we don't get in his way.
Yuki: Right.
Yuki: Wakasama, take your time.

Arata: Oh my my my my. It's already so late.
Arata: I have to throw this away, so I'm going.
Yuki: Right. I'm going to class too.
Arata: Yeah, see you later.

Yuki: Please take one.
Yuki: It's the ball tournament. Please take a flyer.
Tomo: Hey...
Yuki: Hm? What?
Tomo: Why did I have to be recruited to hand out flyers?
Yuki: Because you had free time.
Tomo: Listen, you.

if Yuki did not meet Sonoda on May 23

Yuki: This flyer is nice, isn't it? Me and Kuya-san and Takato-san worked really hard last night making it.
Tomo: Right, right.

if Yuki met Sonoda on May 23 and requested help with the flyers

Yuki: This flyer is nice, isn't it? Sonoda-san and I made them yesterday.
Tomo: Together... These were mostly made by Sonoda-san, weren't they?
Yuki: Ahaha. You could tell?

if Yuki met Sonoda on May 23 and did not request help with the flyers

Yuki: I made this flyer yesterday.
Tomo: Hmm, how should I put this... I recognize your effort.
Yuki: What's that supposed to mean?

Tomo: So? The Ace himself handing out flyers. What are Sagimori-san and Takato-san doing that even an non-club member like me got recruited?
Yuki: Getting the equipment ready. Because third years like them are more familiar with it than me.
Tomo: I see.
Yuki: Right?
Yuki: If you get it, then you do your best too!
Tomo: I said, why me...
Yuki: Oh. Excuse me, please take a flyer.
student: What's this?
Yuki: It's a flyer for the ball tournament. The ball tournament is a bit different this year, so be sure to participate.
student: Ball tournament? I'm not interested.
Yuki: Don't say that, please take a look. Look, here.
student: Gourmand Cup. Hmm...
student: Oh. The prize is pretty nice.
Yuki: Isn't it!? Make a team with friends you can count on and win the crown of victory.
Yuki: If you win, you can eat your favorite dish at the cafeteria.
Yuki: Isn't that awesome?
student: Well, I'll think about it.
Yuki: Thank you!
Yuki: Alright. A positive response!
Tomo: You're fired up... *yaaawn*...
Yuki: Tomo, don't goof off!
Tomo: Oh, right, right.
Tomo: Oh, it's Professor Ito.
Yuki: Huh!? Where? I'll give one to the professor too.
Yuki: Professor Ito!!
Tomo: He doesn't waste any time.
Keita: What is it, Asahina-kun?
Yuki: Please take one too, Professor. It's a flyer for this year's ball tournament.
Keita: It's already that season, huh? That brings back memories.
Yuki: Was there a ball tournament in your time too, Professor Ito?
Keita: Yeah, of course.
Yuki: What was it like?
Keita: It was really exciting and fun.
Keita: Making the best of your skills, taking on a new challenge...
Keita: My athletic ability is average, but it was fun being in the competition with everyone, and even just cheering everyone on.
Yuki: Then please participate too, Professor!
Keita: Me too?
Yuki: Yes! This year, it's okay for teachers to participate too.
Keita: Wow. Then I guess I'll participate.
Yuki: Woohoo!!
Keita: If it's okay for teachers to participate too, why not invite Professor Sakaki too?
Keita: If I remember correctly, he's pretty athletic.
Keita: Look, he's over there.
Yuki: Alright! I'll try inviting him!
Yuki: Professor Sakaki!!
Sakaki: What, Asahina? You're yelling.
Yuki: Teachers can participate in this year's ball tournament, so definitely you too, Professor Sakaki!
Sakaki: The ball tournament.
Sakaki: Well, I'll think about it.
Yuki: Thank you!!
Yuki: Well then, please join the ball tournament!
student: Yeah. I look forward to it.
Yuki: Thanks!
Yuki: Whew. That's it for today!
Tomo: There are a lot of guys who said they'd participate.
Yuki: Yeah!
Tomo: There were guys who weren't interested, but also some who got enthusiastic when they saw the flyer.
Tomo: The upperclassman from the baseball club got really excited and ran off to the club room.
Yuki: The event is just futsal, so I wonder why?
Tomo: He was probably interested in the prize.
Yuki: If that's what he thought, it was worth having the idea.
(Yuki: The ball tournament... I hope it's exciting.)
(Yuki: Please, make it so that everyone participates!)
