    Stealth Hikki is an acquired skill from being friendless for one year, unfortunately.

    At least his Clueless Protagonist D is still intact.
    (The skill ensure the owner is clueless regarding matters. The low rank imply only a specific matter, rather than general things)

    You shove a pair of earphones in to block out the noise and ignore the increasingly rambunctious girls behind you, seemingly closing in without a care.

    You really don't want to get involved.

    Until someone pokes your shoulder to get attention. You still ignore them.

    Poke.

    "W-what is it?" You ask with annoyance and a hint of embarrassment. Back in junior high, there's no way any girl would want to touch you like that. It's honestly kind of cute.

    "Hikigaya-san, do you have time after school?" Kino asks with enthusiasm on her face.

    You raise one eyebrow in response, "...That depends, what do you need?"

    You plan to work with Miyuki and Ryuju over the club proposal after they're done with the student council, which leaves roughly two to three hours left after school for you to wait. While that's true it doesn't mean you have a lot of free time to waste on inane shit, especially over a bunch of girls' whims.

    By saying that depends, you imply that you can spare some time and thought if it was something important. However, if it's something not important, you're willing to just dismiss the invitation, perhaps a little rude to boot.

    But this is just how you are, you don't like putting a pretense and prefer to go straight to the point.

    "I was wondering if you can introduce us more of these restaurant chain-things." Kose points, "The article about Saize last week was very popular."

    Ah.

    Shuchiin students really are sheltered, aren't they? When they see articles about Saize, they probably drown in curiosity and want to try, only to be disappointed if the reality isn't up to the hype.

    That or they just want to taste what peasant food like, and once they go, either they regularly come or they stop.

    "Ahhh, it's so sad that you'll have to pick up for low hanging fruit to pick up reader base now. Shame." Shijo comment from behind.

    "What?" Kino pops a vein or two in response, "As an aspiring journalist, wanting to get closer to society. What's wrong with that?"

    "Your approach is too superficial." Shijo points smugly.

    "I prefer the term broadened horizon." Kino insists.

    You look at Kose and Kashiwagi in confusion and both of them squirm in response, clearly just resigned to the fact that this kind of argument is common among friends like these.

    They sure are passionate girls, well, aside from Kashiwagi perhaps. Not only she looks the most distressed, she probably the stabilizing force in the group too.

    You remember that Shijo and Kashiwagi is part of Yukinoshita's clique in this school, though they're also friends with the journalism club duo.

    It's kind of scary to think.

    Still, perhaps because of that reason, Shijo can flaunt herself so much like this. Not that she did not deserve to do that, she had every right to do that.

    Even so...

    "You say that but what have you ever done to society?" You creepily grins and asks, "Just riding on Yukinoshita's coattail?"

    Shijo froze for a moment, then her pale face turned bright red.

    "What's that supposed to mean?"

    "Yukinoshita showed me everything." You tell her, "So when it will start?"

    "Tch." Shijo bit her lip, "Sports festival, there will be a meeting with donors in the evening after the events."

    "I see, wish you the best of luck. For your club I mean." You honestly tell her without meaning anything, but you notice Kashiwagi get her face flushed for whatever reason.

    "Hmmph, luck has nothing to do with anything." Shijo flicks her twin tails again, clearly agitated by your dismissive response.

    "Well coming back to our question before, do you mind if you help us with the reporting again?" Kino begs, "Please, this will be the last time."

    "About that-"

    Your phone rang which shows Ryuju's contact on the LINE, and you immediately open it.

    "What is it, Ryuju?"

    "[Shirogane negotiated ahead with Principal for the club formation and it's already accepted almost instantly, the proposal can follow later and unless we fuck up something fierce there shouldn't be any issues with the content. That said, I already ask people at home to deliver the donated equipment, so I hope you don't mind tidying up."

    "What the hell did you mean with tidying up?"

    "[Helicopter will be here in a few minutes, bye.]"

    And so she closes the call, leaving you somewhat miffed.

    "What am I, President or pack mule?"

    Hearing a helicopter flying over the school, you already know it's going to suck. Ryuju Momo is a lot of things, but she's not subtle by any means.

    This is why you always consider that youth is a mistake.

    As the students' attention fixated on the landing helicopter, you hurriedly walk toward it and notice two people unloading several gun cases out of the helicopter.

    With the way they handle them, you already feeling ill. Could it be that Ryuju donates...

    "Ah, Hikigaya-dono." One of them said, a young Yakuza with a scar down his chin, "We came to deliver them, should we help to carry them to your clubroom?"

    "How about no, you're getting a lot of attention as it is." You jibe at them in response, "Besides Principal hasn't told me which room is available at the moment."

    "Is it alright? They're one of the heavier models."

    "Figures." You hum as you open a long gun case and found a black metal-bodied, wood-clad Kalashnikov rifle inside. "It's the CYMAs..."

    "We have a couple of assault rifles, submachine guns and a pair of pistols. We've cleaned and oiled the guns, all the batteries have been replaced with new ones too."

    "Hey hey hey we just have three-member at the moment and one of them is a ghost, what the heck?"

    "Well it's Young Miss order, so please excuse us."

    And so the helicopter took off abruptly.

    Could it be that Momo just wants an excuse to dump these guns, cramping her room or something? There must be at least, ten gun cases in total. If you didn't remember wrong, the total worth of these guns with cases and supplies should be in the excess of 300.000 yen!

    But to be honest, for a Shuchiin club this amount of expenses is not entirely unexpected, and with this donation, that means you don't have to grovel too much on club budget in the future.

    "Hmm, hmm, Hikigaya-kun, it's not fine to cause public disturbances like this before your club even officially formed."

    [​IMG]

    Adolphe Pescarolo is Principal of Shuchiin Academy High, he's a mysterious Frenchman with parted hair, mustache, and thick goatee. Sometimes he comes off as undisciplined and laid back, but in terms of bureaucracy, no one can match him.

    "On behalf of Ryuju-san, I shall apologize." You bowed deeply.

    "Ryuju Momo hmm, I could say she's relatively restrained these days, I wonder why." He winks at you, "You even rope her into making her own club, I suppose I can let it this slide this time."

    Ah.

    It was true that, for all the problems you caused, you're very helpful in reining Momo's most unpredictable, whimsical behaviors. In the first place, that's the purpose of having a club in the first place.

    "Hikigaya-san, what are you doing?" the four girls managed to catch up at last.

    "Are those... guns?" Kino curiously opens a case... and screams when she notices that there are metal guns inside. "AAAH! ARE YOU GOING TO ASSASSINATE SOMEONE?"

    "Assassinate my tender ass, they're toys." You grab a bag of plastic BB bullets. "That said, airsoft guns made of real metal and wood really is unusual."

    "Are you sure it's not illegal, Hikigaya-kun?" The principal drops a sweat in panic when he lifts one he's surprised. "It weights like the real thing, too."

    "Yeah, it's near impossible to modify them into real guns without blowing them apart, so they're fine." You deliberately ignore the fact that Principal KNOWS how it feels to lift a real gun, you really don't want to know where that knowledge comes from.

    "Ugh, are you going to pretend soldier and go tryhard on everything?" Shijo throws her hands, "What are you, military maniac?"

    "Speak with human language please," Kino asked.

    "It's technically survival club, but we haven't decided how far we're stretching the term 'survival', for all we know it might just end up a shooting club." You tell them earnestly, "So far we have three members, including Ryuju and President Shirogane."

    "PRESIDENT SHIROGANE JOINED?" Kino almost jumps when she hears the prospect.

    Well technically as a ghost member but still...

    "And I'll be a temporary club advisor until we can find a permanent one." The Principal laughed ominously, it makes sense in hindsight, how many teachers are willing to deal with #1 problem children of Shuchiin?

    And it means that
    1. The Principal can directly oversee the new club to prevent us from causing trouble
    2. He had excuses to slack off


    "I can't stand this anymore." Shijo says in disgust, "Please excuse me, I'll have something to talk with Yukino-san."

    Whoa, looks like she's afraid of you now.

    Change of relationship:
    Shijo Maki: Stranger -> Cautious


    "E-eh?" Kashiwagi looks somewhat disappointed by the response, but it's clear that she want to go after her later. "Ah, Hikigaya-san, are you... close with Yukino-san?"

    "Hardly, we're on talking terms though." You tell her.

    "Umm, it's just that I'm surprised Yukino-san seems to trust you so much to even share our club plan, besides..."

    Besides...?

    "Ah, nothing, let's share a line or something. Or maybe e-mail..."

    Ah, Deja vu. You're not sure if girls these days are too liberated, or just that they didn't see you as a threat. Still, there's absolutely NO reason why you should refuse this kind of chance. It won't come twice.

    Kino twiddle her fingers again, hesitating but still insistent. "Hikigaya-san, what about the restaurant review-"

    "Don't you see that I have entire armory worth of guns to move around?" You incredulously ask them as you present the mountain of gun cases near the spot the Helicopter landed before.

    "Ah, the restaurant review. I just happen to like that article too." The Principal said, "Very enlightening, why don't you help them again, Hikigaya-kun?"

    He winks again. It honestly creeps you out.

    If you help again, it's probably going to increase your rep at school, and particularly impression with the Principal as well.

    "We can help you move some of these... uh, briefcases." Kose offers, "I do manual labor at home all the time, so I'm stronger than I look."

    Hmm, so Kose at least seems to be reasonable enough with the obvious bribe. Plus she does look like she can lift a thing or two.

    "Umm, I can still carry the leftover." Kino looks really, really desperate too, though she looks somewhat frail in comparison.

    RIP Maki route

    For everyone's information Maki prefer docile nice handsome guy so we'll need charisma + order alignment, if I don't misunderstand.

    Kashiwagi is the opposite, the only reason she accept Tsubacuck is because Kabe-DAAN, she's hankering for dat bad boy archetype.


    Karen is pitiful...though I prefer her for maximun comedy route.

    Hikigaya considers this unnerving? Weird sensibilities. To me, it's a joy to hold well maintained, well crafted firearms. People sharing guns, isn't troubling in and of itself. It tends to be a good thing, if they're friendly. Hatchiman's looking at the glass half-empty again.

    Principal is not entirely respectable, but he still manages a top school. A capable personage on your side, who knows firearms is better than somebody who is unknowledgable, or flippant about them. He plays Pokemon GO at school like his students have, and gets flak over it, but that's peanuts given how he keeps the academy from descending into teen-horomone fueled Gomorrah.

    Suck it Shijo! Just try to stop obstruct the club! Cautious relationship, pah! Hikigaya can keep poise. Don't need a silly, quick to judge girl who wished in canon that her arm was broken like Miko's, and looks down on this club.

    It's like Shijo thinks this club is for violent criminals. Granted, the club got a big donation from a Yakuza princess, but it's a leap of logic, as all students in good standing are welcome to join.

    If it comes down to an actual emergency where decent people are being attacked with deadly weapons, someone motivated enough to do so, would be able to train anyways outside the school. It'd be better for well-intentioned students to be able to operate a gun (even if it means a gun taken off a dead or heavily injured friendly), and fight back against a threat, than not be able to.

    If Shijo actually manages to turn people against the club, there's a slightly greater chance members become outcasts who fit into her self-fulfilling prophecy, if assholes act on Shijo's trash talk unreasonably. At that point, I'd hope that Hatchiman uses the opposition to grow the bonds of his club members closer to each other, show the school that the naysayers were full of shit, and drive up his recruitment when they realize there's a lot of good to be had in the club. Shijo might even act as inadvertent advertising for curious classmates.
