Chapter 5:

Introductions?...Sort of...

Do I Really Have to Solve Every Problem in This World?!


Reeling from the chilling experience, Yuuta and Lea were shivering as they walked onto the school rooftop and basked in the warm sunlight sighing in relief then enjoying the soothing breeze lifting their spirits as they sat down as if they were exhausted.

"Well, since we're out here it's a good thing I bought these!" Yuuta said

He brought out two cans of juice (Apple and Peach)

"My Hero!" Lea responded happily.

"Of course!" He responded grinning.

Lea happily takes the Peach flavor leaving Yuuta with the Apple flavor as they opened their drinks and basked in the sun.

"So, Yu-kun what was that earlier?" Lea asked still drinking.

"What was what?" Yuuta replied confused.

"That glow from your pocket during our fight, what was it? Lea said poking his pocket.

"Oh, this?" Yuuta responded by bringing out the orb.

The orb was glowing faintly though the brightness of the sun hid it's luminous nature from them but it was still visible to the children.

"Where did you get it?" Lea spoke.

"Well, I've had it for a while actually." Yuuta replied.

"Yuuta, I had hoped you'd at least introduce me to your friend..." a voice perked up.

"What was that?!" Lea quipped lightly.

"Celeste-san, you didn't have to scare her..." Yuuta responded sighing.

"Well, you need to take better responsibility over this matter..." Celeste pouted.

Celeste then floated away from them briefly and before anything could be said she glowed brightly as wisps of energy flowed from her and began to take the shape of a little girl.

"Don't look Yuu-kun!" Lea blurted out covering his eyes.

"I can't see Lea!" Yuuta responded blindly waving around.

After finishing, she gently sat down with them as if just another student had joined them for their discussion.

"Hauu....W-w-what is this?!" Lea asked confused.

Celeste laughs as if she's been used to this situation years before.

"S-save me...Yuu-kun..." Lea spoke faintly.

"Lea? Lea? What happened?!" Yuuta asked now freed from her grasp.

After rubbing his eyes he looked and he beheld Celeste, no longer an orb she was dressed rather elegantly for a fellow grade schooler but had a hint of maturity in those black stockings along with her auburn hair with silver eyes made something leap in his chest but he couldn't find the words to describe the emotions he was feeling at this time.

"Uh..Celeste-san?" Yuuta spoke softly.

"Yes Yuuta, it's me." Celeste responded calmly.

"Is that really you?" Yuuta said then blushing.

"Of course it is, I thought it would be easier to introduce myself like this than as a mere orb." Celeste responded then poking Lea's face.

"Heeey! Lea-chan! Are you in there?!" Celeste shouted then pinching her cheeks.

"Yeow!" Lea screamed waking up.

"Finally, are you alright?" Celeste asked.

Lea then inspected Celeste round about as if verifying if she was in fact real. Squeezing her cheeks, her waist, and other parts to satisfy her curiosity.

"Lea-chan...I'm here you know?..." Celeste spoke slightly irritated.

"But how?!" Lea responded then grabbing something rather soft.

"Heee!!!!" Celeste flushed.

Immediately throwing a straight hit at Lea she then turned towards Yuuta who was taken aback by her reaction and blushed a firm red.

"Don't look at me!!!" Celeste reacted then landing a clean uppercut.

"Why?!" Yuuta responded his glasses then flying as he soared in the air.

Yuuta could barely remember what happened next, but he knew very well that it was memorable as he could only remember being punched soon after seeing Celeste's flushed face.

'Well, I guess these were our introductions?...Sort of...' Yuuta thought.
