"I am not going."
"I said, I am not going. By the way, Yumi. Do something to that
absent-minded reply, or Sachiko-sama will get annoyed."
Some days ago, someone different had exchanged similar conversations
with me-- Yumi gave a "humm" as she grabbed the mobile receiver
in her room.
"Put that aside, Yoshino, you just said you are not going, right?"
"Yes I did. You schedule of staying at the Sachikos' summerhouse
is exactly the same time as our trip to Mt. Fuji."
In the end of Yumi's confusion, she directed the "Why not go to
the summerhouse" invitation call to Yoshino. The group would turn
out to be the same old student body members, but that probably would
not result in a big mistake. Though not really inspired by Yuki's words,
if the summerhouse visit turned out as something like a Yamayurikai
camp, it might be just as good.
"Shimako and Noriko most probably would be the same."
Well, school activities would eat up most of the latter half of vacation,
so it is not a coincidence at all that plans are made for the not-so-busy
"Moreover, our club is also having a camp. It is really tough to
be both in club activities and Yamayurikai."
"I can understand."
Yumi rolled over on her bed, grabbed the milk bottle close by and shook
it. From this spring, Yoshino is joining the Kendo
Club to be with Rei-sama.
"Also, you are the only one who got invited, right? We won't butt
Yoshino giggled on the other side of the phone.
Yumi gave a bitter laugh.
"Sachiko-sama said it would be fine to invite others. No, the tone
was more like, why not invite someone?"
"What on earth is that?"
