The weekend had passed, it was the 21st, already. The end of the year exams would begin that coming Friday.
However, even on Monday, Ichinose did not show up at school.
Meanwhile, Kanzaki, Shibata and her other close friends were attempting to contact her via text messages, phone calls, and emails.
They kept trying to contact her, constantly.
Still, I did not notice them rushing after school to go meet her, so I figured that just like in my case, Ichinose had told them not to visit her.
I exited the school building, during lunch break and headed for Ichinose’s room.
I knocked lightly, then I called out to her without waiting for her reply.
“Are you resting today, too?”
She already had told me not to come again and yet there I was ignoring her request with my reckless actions.
Ichinose did not reply that time either from inside the room.
I did not say anything else. Just as I did last weekend, I just sat in front of Ichinose’s room until lunch break was over.
It was the same thing on Tuesday. No need for further explanation.
After confirming that she was taking the day off again, I went to Ichinose’s room.
She wouldn’t be able to hate one of her own classmates, but since I was a student in another class, there was no damage for me, even if Ichinose broke off any relationship with me. This was the main reason why I was being so aggressive.
There was little time until the end of the year exam
If things kept going like that, I could even see her being absent from the end of the year examination.
No, even if she showed up on the day of the exam, her classmates would already be suffering from mental fatigue, the whole class could lose points due to the unexpected trouble.
It would have a great impact on class points, even if no one dropped out.
It was necessary to have Ichinose come to school on Thursday to bring some peace of mind to Class B.
As I was thinking about that, I realised the time limit would be, tomorrow, on Wednesday.
