Chapter 9: I was not born yesterday
Yamato: “Fukazawa Yousuke, huh? Not so impressive now…”
Sfx: smack - pashi
Some Guy: Yo- You tryin’ to be funny!? Why are you catching in Volleyball!?
Mikoto: Ah-.. No… I just zoned out a little…
You were looking at the girls!
Think we wouldn’t know loser!
Mikoto: aw owow…
Sfx: mukuri= sitting up
Yamato: You okay…?
Oh, no, sorry, I just…
Yamato-kun is talking to me!
Umm, you always watch others play, don’t you!?
You never participate in PE do you? What do you think about- about bicycles?
AH aaa sorry, never mind, that didn’t make any sense.
In a club, making friends, I was thinking how it fun it is everyday….
Sfx: kasshu kasshu
Mikoto: Kind of perverted finger movements!!
Mikoto: Sorry, I lied.
The thing about the friends is a little different.
But I still think of them as comrades.
Bu- But isn’t it harder to talk to people older than you?
But they’re not really like that.
Bicycle club is a lot of work.
Everyday there’s morning practice, where we ride for 5, 6 hours. After that I’m so exhausted!
But… I still wonder if it’s time for club yet~~~ !
Yamato: 7 minutes 59 seconds…
12 second difference…
Fukazawa Yousuke, huh?
Not so impressive…
I don’t want it ruined.
*Terao: It’s about time you start using cycling shoes—
Mikoto: What are “cycling” shoes?
Yousuke: You’ll do it from now on—
Yuki: Shinozaki, go to the convenience store for me.
Me and… Me and my friends—…!!
They’re relying on me. This is probably the first time…
Everything… I’ve finally found something that I can give it my all!
Yamato: You’ve … changed.
Mikoto: Ohh… sorry, this talk…
Yamato: I still don’t know you very well, but
Mikoto: Th…thank you.
Yamato: Those obstacles in your way,
Defeat every single one.
Yamato: You were thinking that.
Sfx: gokuri- swallow
Cell phone: piroriro…
First one out—!
*thank you for the lunch
Ah, miss, another cream anmitsu please!
Maki: Ga~~~~h She won again—
Yuki: Ah, hello! Oh, Yousuke, nice timing.
Huh? Oh—never mind, just talking over here.
Terao: That’s right! We haven’t seen him in three days. I tried going to the classroom, but they said they haven’t seen him since after PE the day before yesterday.
Hey- Yuki-chan, do you know anything about it?
Yuki: Know something?
Yousuke: He’s already quit.
Oh, well you probably already know.
Sfx: bori bori
Once he gets like that he becomes a “super saiyan” and you don’t know what he might do.
Terao: Anything’s fine! Has he been acting strange lately?
Yuki: He’s always strange.
Terao: Well, what about three nights ago?
[three nights ago]
[someone showed up, right?]
[Then what happened?]
Oh! I got it!
Yuki: At that slope by Maki’s place!
No good at all…
At the beginning I can climb when putting it in a heavy gear.
But when I lose my momentum, I go slower than walking.
That person will come here--….
Yuki: That’s funny----…
Knowing him, I thought he’d definitely be here.
← To let Yuki ride, the two of them shared a bike
Yuki: Speaking of, in this age it’s unbelievable he doesn’t have a cell phone.
Sfx: pura- flop
If we could call him, it’d be a one-shot.
Cell phone: Pirururu—
Yuki: She called…
Perfect timing. Let’s listen!
I saw him around yesterday
Yuki: AAh- don’t hang up yet—
Hurry up and tell us how he was!
Was there anything strange!?
Maki: He didn’t seem any…
＊let me sing…
*maki: yuki you’re so loud
He was coming and going in front of our house, so
I got a little worried.
He looked pretty tired, but
He was able to climb that slope.
Well, about as fast as walking.
I thought I’d say something while getting home from school, so I got closer
He said something
Mikoto: I’m done here.
I’ll try… the next one
Yuki: That idiot--!
*Uwa— What’s up with that…
Couldn’t quite tell though…
Yuki: I got it. Thanks Maki
To the next…
The next highest slope—!!!
Not here either!!!
*Seen this person?
Ahh- it’s a different person!!!
What about over there!?
I already looked.
Yuki: He’s been seen, but we’ve looked all over…
Meaning he’s already climbed the slopes around here.
All that’s left….
The highest mountain the area--!
Sfx: fura- sway
Mikoto: Yo Yousuke-san… Terao-san…
Terao: He’s severely dehydrated.
He’s hardly drank any water.
Mikoto: Please move… I still have to go.
Terao: … Do you know how worried we all were?
It’s not good to ride so recklessly…
You want to ride for a long time yet, right..?
You seriously want to, right?
sfx：jiwa- tears welling
Yousuke: Don’t cry, shrimp!
Terao: Yousuke, go over there!
*Yousuke: Let me hit him!!!!
*Terao: He’s one of us--!!
Yuki: ….He’s not like that.
Yuki: Shinozaki is
Not like that.
Mikoto: A~~~~h don’t say it…
Yuki: Three nights ago, we met a guy saying he was faster than you…
Mikoto: Take it back!
Yousuke-san won’t lose to you!
Take it back!
Yuki: Shinozaki probably thought things would change if everyone knew.
Felt, maybe, things would fall apart.
So… he tried to beat him by himself…
Shinozaki, as only he could, tried to protect this “team”…
Yousuke: Stupid! That record is two years old.
I’m twice as fast now.
sfx： henya – exhausted
Mikoto: I’m relieved—
Yousuke-san really is amazing!
That guy didn’t come after all, so I can relax a little…
*if he came, what would I…
Yuki: Like I said, you guys are the only ones who come here on bikes!
Ah—The sun’s rising!
Hey, what time is it!?
Something’s over there…
