It was homeroom, just before we left for home.
The teacher used his last few minutes to talk about the coming school trip next week, but then…
A sobbing voice echoed from somewhere in the room.
I looked around to see others doing the same until we finally found the source of that noise.
“Toudou, is something wrong?” The teacher was the first to call out.
After being noticed, and even more so after being named, the gazes of every one of my classmates soon fell on her.
Then, her soft sobbing only intensified, and it got loud enough to be called a cry—almost a wail.
All Hisame Toudou answered with was a cry.
The teacher asked again, changing only his tone of voice to something more confused.
After a bit, she finally spoke out, albeit in a fragile tone.
“T, Takasaki forced… forced me…”
I don’t know about the other grades, but there’s only one student in this one with that name.
Me, Yuu Takasaki.
The sudden mention of my name momentarily blanked me out.
I came to myself as quickly as I could, wracking my brain to figure out what on earth she was talking about.
I can’t remember doing anything to her.
From that, there’s only a tentative conclusion I can make: there’s another guy with my name here.
“Takasaki, do you have any idea what’s going on?”
“Not at all, sir.
It’s another Takasaki, isn’t it?”
“Toudou, who’s this Takasaki you’re talking about? You mean the one over there?” The teacher pointed at me, and she nodded her head quickly, as if frightened.
But what’s the matter here? What happened?”
“H, he pushed me down and tried to force me to, to take my clothes off, and… hic…”
No no no no no, what are you talking about? I have no memory of anything remotely like this.
I almost panicked from the sheer absurdity of it all, but that’s not what I should do now.
I need to deny everything and prove my innocence.
Actually, the number of wide-eyed people around me increased by the second, even though only seconds have passed since her bomb dropped.
Regardless, I have to open my mouth.
“I really don’t know what you’re talking about! In fact, I won’t get it until you properly explain what’s going on, Toudou-san!”
First, I tried to grasp the whole story and explain myself, but I realized no one looked at me.
Instead, they looked at someone who raised their hand up—Miu Yamamoto.
“I saw that happen.
Takasaki pushed Toudou down on the mat inside the gym storage.”
“Wait, I’ll ask for more details in the staff room.
Toudou, Yamamoto, and Takasaki, follow me to the staff room.
Everyone else is dismissed.”
The teacher, perhaps thinking it was a bad idea to continue this matter publicly, hurriedly put it all to rest.
Meanwhile, I couldn’t think straight.
It was as if heaven and earth had swapped places, and I almost stumbled down to the ground.
Pushing through, I headed to the staff room with the three of them.
“Teacher! I didn’t do anything!”
As soon as I was ushered into an office next to the staff room, I raised my voice.
I couldn’t just listen and answer with excuses anymore.
For the short time I talked here, I managed to think a bit.
Toudou said she was attacked by me, and Yamamoto testified as a witness.
The fact there was someone who supposedly saw it happen, there was no longer any possibility that she was mistaken.
In other words, these two were conspiring together to frame me.
That’s all I could come up with, so I tried to get the teacher to understand my side.
“I’m sure you’ve got some things to say, but first, let’s hear what happened.”
After the teacher said so, Toudou started talking.
Apparently, after gym class, I had attacked her.
While she told her side of the story, I tried to pick out any
