The PE Storage Room Ninja
Since I had lost at rock paper scissors, at the beginning of October, I became a member of the organizing committee for the sports festival.
The last time I had my second-year sports festival, there wasn’t anything particularly great about it. I didn’t have any point where I appealed greatly, nor did I show shameful points as it passed over with no problems. Now, what about this time?
After school, organizing committee members gathered in the biology room, where I ended up seeing Hiiragi-chan. Come to think of it, she said that she became the teacher in charge of the sports festival.
“Ah. Sanada-kun is also part of the organizing committee?”
Hiiragi-chan was displaying a delighted aura… She’s like a pet dog that just saw her owner.
“It’s because I lost in rock paper scissors.”
“Heeh, I see I see.”
While grinning, her face seemed to want to say, “You became part of the organizing committee since I was the teacher in charge, right? I get it, I get it.”
No, I’m sorry, but I only did this because I lost at rock paper scissors.
Once all of the committee members were ready, Hiiragi-chan started her explanation.
“Basically, you guys will be helping out by doing things to allow the program to run smoothly.”
In simpler words, it would be preparing props, cleaning, or other miscellaneous jobs.
In the first place, the program was already decided, so we just went to the storage room outside, and as Hiiragi-chan confirmed with the printout in her hand, she explained the equipment and tools that would be required.
“—So, whenever you’re done putting in the balls, you need to lower this big bar like thing over here.”
Hiiragi-chan looked back at the students.
Please stop making a smug face that seems to say, “Seiji-kun, I’m hard at work right now!” every time you end an explanation.
We had the same printout as her, which had a map of the school grounds drawn, indicating the location of where things would be placed and installed. It was really easy to understand.
Hiiragi-chan had a tough time making the printout though, so about 70% of it was made by me.
From the nearby gymnasium, the basketball team and volleyball team began their practice with loud voices.
“It isn’t anything very hard, so thank you for your help.”
After Hiiragi-chan lowered her head slightly the rest of the organizing committee also returned an appropriate greeting.
“Sensei still has things she needs to confirm, so we’ll end it here for today.”
The other students left, leaving only me.
“Sanada-kun, things are done for today, you know?”
“I’ll help. What do you need to confirm?”
“… I-if you do that you’ll also have to be nice to other girls, right!? Just now, even Sensei had her heart skip a beat!”
What are you saying with such a loud voice? The door was closed, so I wasn’t worried.
“To indiscriminately scatter heart throbbing excitement, Seiji-kun, that’s one of your bad points.”
“I basically don’t talk to any of the girls in our class, so it’s okay. I’m not making scattering heart throbbing excitement anywhere.”
… Scattering heart throbbing excitement, what’s with that? I turned my head after once again repeating that weird phrasing.
“I’ll count the beanbags over here.”
“Dodging the conversation like that, fine—Thank you for doing that.”
I silently did the work, and when I finished checking, I noticed it. Come to think of it, the door, it’s been closed for a while now…? It can’t be… there’s no way, right…?
Using a finger, I try pulling on the handle.
It won’t even budge!
“Haruka-san, the door is locked. From the outside.”
“Really? I guess the two of us are alone and can rest easy for a bit ♡”
In here, there isn’t any equipment used by the basketball team or volleyball team that are practicing right now. If anything, this place is more of a warehouse than a storage room. If it stays like this… we’ll be locked in here for a while.
Hiiragi-chan had the keys, but it’s a key used to open the door from the outside, so even if she has it, the door won’t open.
That means, seeing the organizing committee break for today, some thoughtful teacher decided to close the door that was slightly open…!? I was silently working in the dark, so I didn’t even notice.
“Seiji-kun, it doesn’t seem like anyone is coming…”
Petan, Hiiragi-chan sat down on some piled up mats.
It’s fine that the two of us will be alone for a while, but being unable to leave is a little worrying.
“From now on… we can use this time when we’re alone…!”
“The mat is a little musty, but you can still lie down on them ♪”
Even now, she’s fully intent on enjoying this…!
“My cellphone is left in my bag back at the biology room. What about Haruka-san?”
“Mine as well, is inside a drawer in the staff room.”
It was a hopeless situation where we couldn’t even ask for help. The window is too small, and it doesn’t seem like anyone can get in or out of it. What can we do…?
“After we get out, we should dry the mats, and by some new sheets—”
“Stop getting so comfortable!”
“There will probably be a teacher that will notice that I didn’t return, so they’ll come looking for me… I wonder when that’ll be.”
Hiiragi-chan’s tone was relaxed as usual. Lying down on her side, she pat down on a spot next to her.
“Come here. Let’s sleep side by side ♪”
“No, this isn’t the time to be…”
“… Don’t want to?”
I ended up intruding next to Hiiragi-chan.
“What am I doing!?”
Hiiragi-chan’s sweet kisses are the best thing in this world.
“There’s no need to scream so loudly. It’s okay, it’s okay.”
It is possible that another teacher could come, struggling right now is of no use… For now, I should wait for help, just like Hiiragi-chan while being held tight by her like a stuffed animal.
… It’s so comforting.
“Is something wrong, Haruka-san?”
“N-nothing… it’s just, I thought I would go to the restroom in here.”
“Restroom… there’s no way that exists here. It’s a storage room.”
Her voice wavered a bit.
—Ah. It can’t be, she’s barely holding on!?
Her expression stiffened, and the number of times she blinked increased unnaturally.
“Eh, what? Are you okay?”
Hiiragi-chan shook her head.
“It might leak!”
Her face turned red, and Hiiragi-chan’s eyes became slightly teary. She started fidgeting her legs.
“A-aaaaannnyyoonnnnneeee! Is anyone theeeeeerrrreeeeee!”
I didn’t say anything, rushed over to the door and started to pound on the door. I can’t very well have a mature lady leak on herself. More so if it’s my beloved girlfriend.
Even after desperately calling for help, I couldn’t sense the presence of anyone.
“Se-Seiji-kun… D-don’t call out so loudly, the ringing…”
Twitching her nose and with tearful eyes, her expression was already one that could not be revealed.
“After I leak, I’ll kill Seiji-kun and then die myself!”
“Do your best! Also, don’t just casually drag me into all of this.”
“Fumiiiiiieeeeen, I-I can’t keep going….”
Hiiragi-chan, who had seemed to reach her mental limit, finally started to cry. At that time, gacha gacha, a sound could be heard from the door.
“S-sana was waiting. Nii-san, never came to the entrance at all! Nii-san, you’re there right!?”
Gara, the door opened.
Demonstrating the agility of a ninja, Hiiragi-chan left the storage room in an instant and disappeared.
“Fuwaah!? W-what was that just now!? A ninja!?s”
“Sanaaaaa! You saved us! Not me… mostly… the ninja.”
I firmly hugged her.
“Yaaaaaaah!? W-what are you doing!? Let go, Nii-san you idiot, pervert, siscon!”
Since she was violently struggling, I let go of Sana.
“Why do you let go so easily!?”
“What am I supposed to do?”
“It’s fine now…”
Hmph, she swept her hair, adjusted it, and said, “Let’s go home?” before walking away.
On the way home, I asked her, and apparently, she just happened to see us and the organizing committee enter the PE storage room. However, we weren’t coming out at all, so she thought it was weird and went to borrow a key to open it.
“Mou, Nii-san is quite the handful. Be grateful, okay?”
“Yeah yeah, thank you.”
Hiiragi-chan wouldn’t be able to thank her enough. The texts that I received from Hiiragi-chan were filled only with smiley face emojis. Apparently, she made it in time.
“Sana, I’ll treat you to a drink. Ice cream is fine to, you know?”
“What? That’s unusual…”
Although Sana was suspicious of me, she didn’t hold back at all. Ice cream, drinks, and snacks, I ended up treating her to a total of 500 yen worth.
