Circle General Meeting

KO-FIDISCORD


Chapter 1 : Circle General Meeting

As March began, members of our circle, Wakiai Ai, gathered in an empty classroom. (Our university generously offers empty classrooms and meeting rooms for free to university members.)

Today’s gathering was to decide the new representative for our circle.

Usually, this is done as early as December or right after the final exams in the second semester, but this year, due to various reasons, it was delayed until March. (Though I speak as if it’s someone else’s business, it’s actually because of my revenge plan.)

“Then, for this academic year, we would like to ask Ms. Kazumi Kanou to be the new representative of the circle!” announced Mr. Nakazaki, the previous representative.

In our circle, the representative and officers are decided by voting for either candidates who stand for election or those who are nominated.

But in reality, since there are hardly any candidates, the previous representative and officers usually decide on the nominees in advance in the form of “recommendations.”

So, even though it’s called a vote, there aren’t any competing candidates. It’s almost an automatic decision.

…But still, it’s amazing that Kazumi-san is the representative.

After all, she joined this circle only half a year ago.

Normally, someone who has been participating since their first year would become the representative.

Certainly, Kazumi-san has both influential and persuasive power.

She’s someone who can speak her mind fearlessly to anyone.

And yet, she possesses a charismatic charm that attracts people.

In just half a year, she became a central figure.

Normally, with such a straightforward personality, one would expect to make many enemies, but Kazumi-san, including her character, is liked by everyone.

“Kazumi-san, you’ve been in this circle for only half a year and now you’re the head? That’s incredible,” Ishida, sitting next to me, voiced the same thoughts I had.

“Sure, considering Kazumi-san’s influence, it’s understandable.”

“But it’s not just that. This was a strong recommendation from Nakazaki-san. When Nakazaki-san first approached her to be the representative, Kazumi-san declined. But after Nakazaki-san’s persistent persuasion, she reluctantly accepted,” Ishida explained the background.

“Being so highly regarded by Nakazaki-san means Kazumi-san is really something.”

“There was also push from key female members like Mina-san and Manami-san.”

“Mina-san is the vice-representative, and Tohko Senpai is in charge of public relations. I thought Tohko Senpai would be the vice-representative.”

I said this while looking at the distributed roster. Incidentally, the secretaries and treasurers are third-year male students.

“Yeah. I wonder why Tohko Senpai is in charge of public relations.”

As we were discussing this, Mr. Nakazaki said, “Now, a word from our new representative, Kazumi Kanou-san,” and handed her the microphone.

Kazumi-san, scratching her head, took the microphone with a reluctant expression.

“Ah, I’m Kazumi Kanou, as just introduced. As you all know, I’ve only been in this circle for half a year, but I was earnestly requested by Nakazaki-san to take up the position. Since I’ve accepted it, I intend to give it my all, so I want everyone to follow me. Thanks!”

Applause erupted from around the room. Everyone seemed to agree with the decision.

“Now, first, I will announce this year’s policy for the circle…”

Kazumi-san paused mid-sentence and looked around at everyone.

Involuntarily, everyone waited for her next words.

“From now on, the boys will be the girls’ servants. No objections will be accepted.”

…What? What is she saying?

For a moment, all the boys were enveloped in an atmosphere of holding their breath.

Ishida and I were dumbfounded.

Staring intently at Kazumi-san’s face… she was serious.

Is she really serious about this?

Then Kazumi-san broke into a smile.

“Don’t take it seriously, everyone. You’re supposed to react here, right? It’s a joke, a joke. I just wanted to lighten the mood since it felt a bit tense.”

Sighs of relief could be heard from the boys around.

I let out a similar sigh of relief.

…When Kazumi-san says something, it’s hard to take it as a joke…

“Kazumi-san, when you say it, it doesn’t sound like a joke!” Ishida echoed my thoughts.

Kazumi-san looked at Ishida.

“Ah, Ishida-kun, you can be my personal servant. How about I appoint you right here?”

“Geh, why am I the target?”

“Being the servant of a beautiful circle leader is a privilege, right? Depending on your performance, I might even promote you to butler.”

Saying this, Kazumi-san faced forward again.

“Setting aside jokes for everyone except Ishida-kun…”

“Mine wasn’t a joke,” Ishida remarked quietly.

“We will put our full effort into various events this year. Our circle is intercollegiate, but many of our students are from Castle City University. So, we’ll focus more on campus events. Also, continuing a policy inherited from Nakazaki-san, we want to emphasize outdoor events. After all, our circle originally focused on outdoor activities.”

Everyone listened silently to Kazumi-san’s speech.

With the recent surge in outdoor activities, there had been a growing call since last year to incorporate more outdoor events.

Kazumi-san’s statement of intent continued.

“Additionally, securing a clubroom, a longstanding wish of this circle, is something I really want to accomplish this year.”

This statement prompted a response from a third-year male student.

“How exactly do you plan to do that? We apply for the ’empty clubroom lottery’ every year, but it’s always a long shot.”

Kazumi-san looked at the third-year male student, her lips slightly curving into a smile.

“This year, we have a special strategy, almost guaranteed to succeed.”

“What is it?”

I looked at the third-year male student. I knew the answer.

It was something Tohko Senpai and I had discussed with Kazumi-san just a few days ago.

“Everyone knows that this year, instead of the Miss Castle City University contest, the Miss Muse contest is being held, right?”

Most members nodded in agreement.

“So, our circle plans to nominate Tohko Sakurajima for Miss Muse.”

Upon hearing this, the room buzzed with excitement.

“So the article was true?””If Tohko-san participates, the chances of winning are high.””But why did Tohko-san suddenly decide to participate? She’s always steadfastly refused beauty contests.”

Nakazaki-san clapped his hands loudly to get everyone’s attention.

“Everyone, quiet down! Kazumi-san isn’t finished speaking!”

The room fell silent, and everyone turned their attention back to the front.

Kazumi-san spoke again.

“Regardless of the circumstances behind Tohko’s participation in Miss Muse, if she enters, we want to win. The application was submitted by our circle.”

Kazumi-san emphasized this point, then glanced around at the members.

I too casually observed the reactions of those around me.

Was someone going to react to this statement?

I couldn’t figure out who might have submitted Tohko Senpai’s Miss Muse application without her knowledge.

Apparently, neither did Kazumi-san, as she returned her gaze to the front and continued.

“If Tohko remains among the top nine in Miss Muse, our circle stands to benefit. Not only could we get the much-desired allocation of a clubroom, but also receive financial aid and priority use of facilities during the university festival.”

Some members cheered, “Woah, yes!”

I understood their excitement well.

University life can be quite devoid of personal space.

In high school, you have your own seat, your own locker, a place to leave your stuff, and a guaranteed spot to sit.

But in university, there’s no designated seating, nor space to leave personal belongings.

This changes once you’re assigned to labs or seminars, but first and second-year students often feel like they have nowhere to belong at the university.

That’s why having a clubroom, a place where you can always find someone and leave your things, is so valuable.

Until now, lacking a clubroom, a corner of the cafeteria had become our hangout spot.

“So, as a circle, we’ll support Tohko, but for Miss Muse, besides the nominee, we need four recommenders.”

Kazumi-san picked up a piece of paper.

“As for the recommenders, we’ve decided based on Tohko’s wishes. It will be me, Mina Hayashi, Manami Inamoto, and Yuu Isshiki.”

“I thought so,” someone murmured.

“But it’s not just us four who will support her. We’ll need help from the entire circle in various ways. Please be ready when the time comes.”

“Alright, understood!”

“For the clubroom, right? Gotta secure that nap spot!”

“And a place to play Mahjong without worry!”

“No way, you guys are not turning it into a Mahjong parlor.”

“It’s a clubroom for the circle, remember!”

People around me also started talking to me.

“Go for it, Isshiki-kun!”

“We’re rooting for you.”

“You’re lucky to be the recommender for your crush, Tohko-san. You’ll do your best, right?”

“Put your life on the line, well, not literally, to ensure she gets into Miss Muse.”

To this, I responded with a wry smile.

“No need to bet our lives on it.”

“Just don’t slack off.”

“But Tohko-san should have it easy, right?”

“She was known as the ‘Dark Horse of Jou-to University’ and ‘The True Miss Campus.'”

In the midst of this, a senior girl grabbed my shoulder and said, “Just don’t lose to ‘Rindou Akane.'”

After the circle’s general meeting, Senior Touko, Kazumi-san, Mina-san, Manami-san, and I, along with Ishida, stayed behind.

“Ishida-kun didn’t make it into the four-person frame, but he’s pretty much one with Isshiki-kun,” Kazumi-san explained.

“Don’t describe me like an afterthought,” Ishida said with a dissatisfied look. “Can’t you at least call me ‘The Fifth Man’ or something cooler?”

Ignoring Ishida, Kazumi-san turned to me. “Isshiki-kun, could you explain the process for the Miss Muse contest?”

“Sure.”

I distributed the prints I had prepared to everyone. “This is what I inquired about from the Circle Council. So, essentially, this is how things will go.”

Pointing to the first item, “Schedule,” on the print, I explained, “Since the Miss Muse contest is part of the Spring Festival to introduce new students to the university, it’s completed before Golden Week. The main event is the Spring Festival itself. Compared to regular university beauty pageants, which take nearly half a year and culminate at the university festival, this one is considerably shorter.”

Hearing this, Mina-san nodded. “One criticism of Miss Campus contests is that ‘the selection period is too long, interfering with academic and university life.’ So, it’s nice that this is a short-term result.”

“Yes, but that means we have a shorter PR period. It might be hard to let people know about our inner qualities. This seems a bit off from the Miss Muse’s aim of ‘diversity of charm.'”

Kazumi-san waved her hand dismissively. “Who cares about Miss Muse’s aims? How will the voting be done?”

“Online voting. Only accounts registered with the university email can vote.”

“And how do we do PR?” asked Manami-san.

“Primarily online, given the tight schedule. Main activities will be on social networks and video sharing, though someone good at art might hold an exhibition, and musicians could do mini-concerts or live shows.”

“Are you planning to do anything in public, Touko?” Kazumi-san asked.

Touko-senior frantically waved her hands. “No way! I can’t do anything like that in front of people. I’m not even sure I can handle making videos.”

“Don’t force Touko to do anything,” said Mina-san, coming to her defense. “She’s the type who looks impressive just standing there.”

But I wondered if that was enough.

“Isshiki-kun, can you set up Touko’s social media and think of some self-promotion content?” Kazumi-san continued. “Ishida-kun, once the social media is set up, check for any inappropriate comments. Also, help and coordinate with each person in charge.”

“So, I’m just doing odd jobs?”

“It’s an important role. You’re the Chief Coordinator.”

“That’s just a fancy way of saying the same thing,” Ishida muttered.

While finding Ishida’s grumbling amusing, I added, “The council is also setting up a dedicated server. We can upload photos and videos of the candidates there. It will have a bulletin board where anyone can post, so if we’re monitoring posts, we should watch that too.”

“Okay, got it. This Miss Muse is a short, two-month battle. Let’s meet twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, to report progress. Share any photos or videos in the MINE group as soon as they’re ready so everyone can see them. Let’s all do our best!”

With that, Kazumi-san concluded the meeting.

On the way back from the general meeting, Touko-senior invited me to a coffee shop, just the two of us.

Ishida and Kazumi-san tactfully said they’d go ahead.

I ordered a café latte, and Touko-senior, a cappuccino.

As we sat down, she let out a heavy sigh. “What’s wrong?” I asked.

She seemed to ponder before responding, “This turned out to be more difficult than I thought.”

“We haven’t even started yet.”

“Yeah, but… I was just thinking, ‘Introduce yourself online, let people vote as they like, and that’s how the nine are chosen.'”

“Well, if we’re going to do it, we have to be serious. Kazumi-san said that before, didn’t she?”

When we told Kazumi-san that Touko-senior would participate in Miss Muse, she wasn’t enthusiastic at first.

“Does Touko really need to do this? We don’t have to think about benefits to the circle,” she had said, concerned that Touko-senior might have been pressured into it.

But Touko-senior has a strong sense of responsibility, especially if her actions might affect others.

It seemed almost stubbornly…

“No, I’ve already said I’d participate, I’m going to do it,” said Senior Touko.

Hearing this, Kazumi-san seemed to give up and promised her support, “Alright. If Touko says so, I’ll support you…”

“That’s right. Kazumi and everyone in the club said they’d help, and they’re expecting a lot… But it’s kind of a burden, you know… I’m not really used to being expected to do such things…”

“Don’t worry, Senior Touko. Everyone says you’re the ‘True Queen of the Campus.'”

Senior Touko looked at me with a mix of anxiety and discontent in her eyes.

“That’s not something everyone’s saying with any basis. I’ve never said or even thought that about myself.”

This isn’t good, Senior Touko is getting increasingly negative.

I tried to steer her mood in a brighter direction.

“But you know, this could be a chance.”

“A chance? For what?”

I made a teasing smile on purpose.

“Senior Touko, you said before that you wanted to ‘know what makes a girl cute,’ right? Back then, I could only answer from my perspective of ‘cute Senior Touko,’ but now, you can discover ‘cuteness’ from many people’s perspectives.”

Senior Touko, blushing, bowed her head shyly with her hands clasped tightly on her thighs.

“That was just… Besides, I was satisfied with your answer at that time.”

“Besides, I’m quite looking forward to this Miss Muse contest!”

Senior Touko looked up, surprised.

“After all, you can only do these things while you’re a student. You can’t do them on such a large scale in high school, and it’s usually not possible once you’re a working adult.”

“Now that you mention it…”

“Plus, having someone close to me participating in such an event is quite rare, isn’t it? This might be my first and last chance to produce such an event.”

“Uh, yeah…”

“It’s also a chance for me to know more about Senior Touko. You don’t really like to talk about yourself.”

“It’s not like I’m hiding anything…”

“So, Senior Touko, let’s enjoy this Miss Muse contest together. I’ll support you with all I’ve got. It’s a rare opportunity for me to be of help to Senior Touko, so I’m all fired up!”

Hearing my enthusiastic words, Senior Touko showed a shy smile.

“Thank you. If you say so… Yeah, it might be nice as a memory of my university days.”

“That’s right, let’s work hard and have fun together!”

Senior Touko nodded to my words, then said with a self-deprecating tone, “I’m hopeless, aren’t I? When I’m with you, Isshiki-kun, I tend to show my weaker side, my real feelings. Even though I just decided to ‘do my best’ recently.”

“You can always vent to me if you need to. Everyone needs a place to let out their frustrations.”

…And knowing a side of Senior Touko that nobody else knows makes me somewhat happy.

It seems like Senior Touko is finally looking forward to it.

Miss Muse. If we’re going to do it, we might as well enjoy it and aim to win.

For that, it’s most important that Senior Touko participates with a bright spirit.

After chatting for a while, we left the cafe.

Just as we were leaving, Senior Touko murmured almost inaudibly, “If you want to know about me, I’m always ready to talk…”
