Haru thought that he wouldn't have a job on the student council, but it seemed that wasn't the case, but he didn't mind. He was quite free anyway and he also helped with the preparation of the school festival.
Manyuda glanced at Haru who seemed to be working very seriously. He had never seen this side of him before and he had to admit that Haru was very handsome. Even though he was normal and didn't swing that way, he had to admit that Haru's charm was very high. He tried to look away since he felt that it was a bit wrong to watch Haru's face, but he was startled when he heard Haru call him out.
"Manyuda, here's the report. I've finished it."
"....Well..." Mayuda pushed his glasses and felt uncomfortable. He looked at Haru who didn't seem unpurtubed by his actions before. He felt a bit relieved and nodded, taking the report from Haru.
Haru yawned and stretched his body. Tomorrow, he was going to have the first meeting with the entire members of Muse along with their new members. They were students and even thought they were able to meet after class, there were a lot of things which he needed to tell them and it might take a long time so he decided to set the meeting on Saturday when they didn't need to go to the school.
If it was being done after the class then he was afraid that they might go back too late. They were all girls and it was dangerous for them to go back late.
That's why he decided to start the appointment on Saturday.
"What's wrong, Manyuda? You're not free, right?" Haru asked since Manyuda kept looking at him.
Manyuda nodded and didn't think too much. He might have also been quite hasty before, but when he thought about it calmly, he realized that he wasn't mature enough.
"I'll go out first. If Kirari asks me where I've gone, tell her that I'm going to check the most unpopular gambling den in this school."
Before Manyuda gave a response, Haru had left the student council.
"The most unpopular gambling den?" Manyuda pushed his glasses and wondered why Haru went to that place. 'Does he want to build a new gambling den?' He shook his head and felt that it didn't really matter. Looking at the seat of the president, he looked around the class and his heart thumped very fast. He wanted to test how it felt to sit down on that place since he, Manyuda Kaede, had a dream to become the student council of this school.
Manyuda stood up and wanted to sit in that place, but the door was open and he quickly returned to his seat with a calm expression, but he had a lot of sweat on his body and sighed.
"Hmm? Where's Haru?" Runa asked.
"Kasugano-senpai is going to visit the most unpopular gambling den at school." Manyuda glared at Runa since he almost showed a stupid action in front of her.
"What's wrong? You want to sit down in the President's seat? Why don't you try it?" Runa asked with a teasing smile.
Manyuda would be lying if he didn't blush at that moment.
It was very rare for Haru to be alone, and he often went out together with Kirari, Runa, Yuriko, Sayaka, the members of Traditional Culture Research Club since if he was alone there would be a lot of trouble.
"Senpai, where are you going to go?"
"Can we follow you?"
When they saw Haru was alone, they knew that it was their chance to stay with him. They got very close with him and their eyes shone in excitement.
It wasn't that Haru hated it, but it was quite troublesome and Kirari was also quite jealous when she knew that he talked with the female students in this school, but it seemed that his luck was quite good since someone had greeted him.
Haru turned and saw Miboumi which surprised him, but he nodded. He made an excuse to the girls that he had something to do and left them to Miboumi.
"You're as popular as ever, Kasugano-kun." Miboumi smiled.
"You're also as popular as I am." Haru was trying to be modest since he was more popular than Miboumi after all.
If someone asked who was the most popular person in this school, then without doubt, it was him.
If he decided to become a student council president then without doubt, a lot of students and teachers would agree without hesitation.
Haru stared at Miboumi and wondered what this guy was about to do. His relationship with Miboumi was quite normal, and he didn't think too much if this guy wanted to throw Kirari's position to become a president of the student council since he felt that it was impossible.
"Where are you going?" Miboumi asked.
"I'm free anyway, are you going somewhere, Senpai?" Haru asked.
"Oh, then, how about you follow me?" Miboumi asked.
"Sure, why not?" Haru was wondering what this guy wanted to say.
The relationship between the two of them wasn't as close as it seemed, but they needed to maintain their image, after all, and act politely to each other. Though, it seemed that Miboumi really wanted to get close to him.
At first, Haru didn't really mind it, unfortunately, this guy made the wrong enemy.
They walked next to each other and they happened to see a bullying scene.
With the "housepet" system, students who couldn't pay their debt would need to put a tag on their neck to differentiate their identity before they could pay their debt. Though, at the same time, because of that the bullying in this school had increased, but no one in the school cared too much about it.
Bullying often happened in every school, however, the bullying in this school was a bit better than the normal school outside since there was a lot worse, but even so, it didn't mean he liked it.
If Haru didn't see it then he wouldn't bother, but he happened to see it and it made his mood bad.
"Oi, stop it."
The bullying group stopped when they saw Haru. If someone asked who was the most popular person in this school then it would be Haru since he was the richest man in this country.
"You're making my mood bad, how about you go now?" Haru's tone was easy, but his eyes were staring sharply at the bullying group.
They quickly ran away since they were really scared earlier.
Haru shook his head and sighed. He wasn't a saint, but if it happened in front of his eyes, then he would help. He helped the victim and asked, "You alright?"
"T, thank you very much, Kasugano-kun."
"Well, I can't help you that much, but I believe if you can hold out then you might be able to erase your status as a housepet." Haru patted the victim's shoulder and left since it was a male student. He didn't intend to pay for the victim's debt, but he hoped for that guy to be able to stand up by himself, even though he knew that it was hard.
The guy stared at Haru's back and sighed. He really hoped for Haru to protect him, but it seemed impossible.
Miboumi smiled when he saw Haru's action. "You seem different from what I know, Kasugano-kun."
"Oh? What do you mean?" Haru asked.
"I've thought that you're similar to your girlfriend, Momobami-san."
In the eyes of the students, Kirari's image wasn't good since she was the one who had invented the "housepet".
Waving his hand, Haru said, "You think too much, Senpai. I'm not that good of a person, but I hate bullying. If it happens in front of my eyes then I'll stop it, but if it does not then I won't stop it. I'm not their nanny after all."
Haru also knew that it was impossible to erase a bullying since from ancient times, it had always happened and it was one of the methods for someone to relieve stress, but, he was disgusted by it.
"But even so, your intention is good. Bullying is bad and discrimination inside this school is absurd." Miboumi seemed to be very excited and said, "Kasugano-kun, how about we erase the "housepet" system in this school?"
Looking at Miboumi, Haru was wondering why this guy was similar to a cult member who tried to solicit someone.
