Youkoso V9C3 Part 3

Classroom of the Elite Volume 9 Chapter 3 Part 3

TL: Graze

After returning to my room, I received a text message from Horikita.

[You around?]

Even though I didn’t respond to her, another message came flying in.

[Since the message has been marked as read, I’ll just continue talking as that’s more convenient. Ichinose-san will be coming to my room tonight. Will you come?]

Such an unexpected message.

At first, I had only intended to read what she sent, but I chose to give a proper response.

[What developments took place to lead to the current situation?]

[We’re in an alliance with Class B. It’s only natural that we’d lend a hand given the current state of affairs. But, this time we don’t know the full story. Therefore, I was thinking of hearing about it from the person herself.]

So, she got in contact with Ichinose and asked her if they could meet together in person.

She had made quite a bold move.

It’s easy to refuse.

If I ask Horikita about it later, she’d tell me what Ichinose tells her.

Though, that doesn’t mean Horikita will learn everything.

Even Kanzaki, despite how close they are, doesn’t seem to know all the details about Ichinose.

In which case, would asking her directly bring me closer to the truth?

The problem is that if I put my foot in the door here, I’ll end up getting involved.

What should I do, I wonder?

After thinking about it for a little, I sent a response back to Horikita.

[What time?]


A bit late.

I’d have to be careful so as to not be seen by any of the other students.

[Understood. I’ll let you know when I’m on my way.]

I decided to meet Ichinose together with Horikita.
