It was Summer vacation and our heroines got the urge to tail their teacher.
They went high and low doing a poor job, mainly Mika, concealing themselves. It wasn’t until they reached a stairway to a shrine that they’d had enough. Miss Koizumi was a pro hiker. Himeno revealed the real reason she wanted to follow Miss Koizumi. She wanted to be as far away from the pottery club as possible. She still hadn’t recovered from the major downer last time. She couldn’t concentrate, especially around talented people like Touko and Mika. When Touko announced there would be a break in club activities Himeno breathed a sigh of relief. Studying for exams was an excuse for her to stay away from the club.
Naoko and Mika were like “Our Himeno’s so cute when she’s all serious”. Miss Koizumi, who knew they’re following her for a while, helped ease Himeno’s worries. Hime just needed a break to recharge. Nothing wrong with that. She revealed the reason for her trip was to check out the fireflies at night before the end of the season. That and the other person on the phone was a gal pal of hers. Knowing a certain someone with the initials L.V. she knows what the teacher really meant. Point was Himeno felt relieved thanks to her friends, teacher and the fireflies’ support.
Good stuff as usual.
