    Maybe he'd still be able to block the ball with his face after failing to catch it.

    More wondering if it was going to be an inevitable byproduct of a failed attempt rather than an intended goal, really.

    They better not spread word that Hatchiman likes to catch and follow it with eyebrow waggles.
    Like with sexual service?

    I always did have an irresistible urge to catch incoming projectiles, and body block sounds ridiculous.

    If Block is the chosen one...
    Make it head block!
    And maybe make Hikki didn't fall unconscious.
    Because we need to see the girls reaction.
    (Also, anyone know how to insert cropped images into a reply?)

    You're not one to play soccer, hell, you're hardly one to play a team sport, period. When it comes to sports, you're doing the best on solo. That's about it.

    Even so, you're confident in your own body, you should be fast enough to catch that.

    Bad decision.

    Shuchiin academy is a school full of genius. Just because you're athletic doesn't mean you're ready for anything, there's always someone stronger, faster or more skilled and this striker isn't an exception.

    Many of Shuchiin's stronger club members might very well qualify for the Olympics.

    A kick from a national-level young striker isn't something to take lightly. Even for a tenth of a second, you feel like your finger being crushed from the rotation and pressure, and your grip barely impedes the ball.

    The ball hit you squarely in the face, and you can even smell the iron.

    Your nose is bleeding.

    Still, you managed to keep your dignity somewhat intact as you land on your feet completely unshaken with the ball in front of you. But boy that's hurt, and you're a bit disoriented and weak on the knees.

    You see Yukinoshita practically freezing on the spot, Shijo is in complete shock, while Kashiwagi yelp a little.

    "This is lame." You mutter as you kick the ball back to the source, not wanting to get even more attention while pinching your nose with your left hand. The ball rolled down.

    "Sorry about that!" The unsuspecting soccer club member shouted.

    You should find someplace to sit.

    "Yukino-san, Makki, please go ahead of me!"

    Kashiwagi suddenly grabs your wrist and pulls you toward the school building, much to your confusions.

    You end up in Shuchiin infirmary.

    The Infirmary of Shuchiin is almost decidedly mundane, much like many of Shuchiin facilities, it's built like a normal school but with certain features added.

    For example, the infirmary is staffed by qualified paramedics and has emergency life support equipment available. But otherwise, there's nothing in between.

    "Sensei, please help!"

    "Hmm?" The female doctor looks at you both.

    "Sorry, can I have some crushed ice pack and a towel?" You smile wrily and sit down on one of the beds, "I got a nosebleed."

    "Ah, alright."

    In contrast to the concerned Kashiwagi, the Doctor was completely calm and almost laid back as she picked a bunch of ice from the freezer and crush them.

    You put the bagged ice on the bridge of your nose.

    "It should be fine now, just keep sitting upright with head slightly lowered for ten to fifteen minutes." The Doctor told you, "Breath through the mouth calmly to reduce pressure."

    Actually, you know pretty much all of it but stay quiet.

    "Is there additional pain around the nose? Do you have trouble breathing?"

    The Doctor flashed her penlight to your eye to check your reaction, just in case there's major disorientation.

    "No."

    Your nose isn't broken, and it seems that only anterior blood vessels that's got hurt. You can't feel any blood in the back of your nose or throat.

    "It should be fine, Kashiwagi." You tell the girl, "Yukinoshita probably waiting for you."

    "Is it really fine?"

    "Well, in most cases all you need is to sit still and pinch your nose like this. Maybe some ice too. Moving around is going to make it worse."

    You can tell that Kashiwagi feels increasingly worried and guilty because dragging you to the infirmary isn't helping, if not outright making the situation potentially worse.

    "Look at the upside, now I can have the ice." You cheer her up, if only because you feel rather disturbed. "Go."

    "A-alright then." Kashiwagi backs off, but before she walks out she says, "Sorry, and thank you for saving us."

    Anyone with a sense of human decency would do that, but this being Shuchiin, human decency might be very well a precious commodity.

    "Your girlfriend is so nice, you better treasure her."

    "She's not my girlfriend."

    And because she's so nice, Kashiwagi would do this for anyone. That much, you understand. She didn't owe you and you didn't owe her anything.

    Misunderstanding something that simple, you're not that foolish.

    The blood more or less stopped after 10 minutes, but you keep the ice on for an additional 10. It feels numb but probably better than pain.

    There's no major bruise, that you can tell. And even pushing your nose left and right didn't hurt at all.

    "Not broken or bruised thankfully." You notice as you look at the mirror, "Is there anything I need to do, Sensei?"

    "Don't do any strenuous activity, three days to a week. Make sure not to blow your nose, and keep it clean. If your pain intensifies after you leave, feel free to use this." The Doctor gives you a small tube of pain relief gel. "But don't use it needlessly if you don't feel it."

    "Alright then. Can I have a disposable mask?"

    "Here. Come back here tomorrow so we can check it properly. If it gets worse later today, don't be shy to visit a hospital."

    You wear a mask outside, primarily to protect your nose from dust and other irritants and pollution. You keep your breathing slow and steady so as not to break the blood clotting.

    It seems that you need to rest today, after all. Searching for clubs would be tedious and part-time work is out fo question.

    ...

    It's Tuesday. You find a box of choco balls under your table, you have the inkling who exactly the person who gives it. Or maybe several people, but who knows. It's unlikely to be Yukinoshita, at least.

    Perhaps because it's the first time someone who isn't Komachi or your other family members ever give you a bunch of chocolate, it tastes rather delicious.

    And before you know it, it's Thursday. Your nose more or less healed completely thanks to you putting extra effort to nurse it, and having proper rest.

    What do?

    [ ] Check the clubs.
    [ ] Ask father if there's a job available.
    [ ] Go home anyway (skip to electives).

    VIPs of Shuchiin are mostly concerned on their clubs.
    With Public Service Club (possibly) being created, it's a good idea for Hikki to check on his Archenemy and have some misunderstanding with either Ice Queen or Yakuza Princess that he later on will clarify (unsuccessfully) at the Electives.
    It could create a short joke where one of the girls look different that one of those Gossiping Duo will misunderstood as Jealousy!

    On one hand, I don't wanna service club which is probably among the top of the list. On the other hand, idol tend to end in crash and fire with the QM for some reason.

    Nah don't worry, Hachiman will be on maximum dodge. You have read the other fanfic and you can tell why,

    Also it will open more connection afterward if you done well, after all at least one of the Shuchiin VIP is an idol.

    Also remember, whether you pick a job or a club, it's not like it's permanently fixed.

    Clubs are not everyday activity and at the moment your rank and connection is low enough that high pay job only comes every once a while.

    EDIT: You can also delay joining.

    Also we're in the first year at the moment.
