“Hey? Who’s doing the cleaning duty today?” Tetora looked around in the class as he caught everyone’s attention. The teacher for their last period had to leave early, leaving the class to do a self-study while waiting for the bell.
“Oh, that will be me and Hanayo.” Maki replied as she looked up from reading a book.
“Huh, is that so? Then how about we do it now?” Tetore asked, as he directed the question towards the two females in the class. The suggestion earned him a questioning stares from everyone but Tetora did not seemed to mind it.
“Eh? But we’ve still got like an hour before school ends.” Hanayo said. Tetora grinned even wider after she said that.
“Then all the more reason why we should do it now! At least you girls don’t have to rush once school ends. You guys could even just head to your own clubs after this!” he explained. Maki and Hanayo looked at each other before they looked back at the grinning boy at the front of the class.
“Well, you have a point...but-” Maki’s word was cut off by Tetora.
“Right?! So, let’s get started!” Tetora made his way to the back of the class to get the tools for the cleaning duty in the locker at the back of their class.
“Hey, I haven’t even finished saying it. Geez...” Maki let out a sigh as her eyes followed the boy’s movement.
“Tetora-kun, what are you doing?” Hanayo asked as she watched the boy took out a dirty cloth that was used to wipe the windows.
“What am I doing? Obviously, I’m helping out~! The more help you get, the better!” he replied, his grin still remained on his face.
“If that’s the case, let me help too.” Hajime spoke up as he got up from his seat and made his way to Tetora.
“Eh? E-Even Hajime-kun?” Hanayo asked. The blue-haired boy nodded with a smile before taking another dirty cloth.
“Hajime, I know you love to help out but really, you don’t have to trouble yourself about this.” Maki said as she turned around to face him. However, Hajime shook his head.
“It’s fine. I really wanted to help out. Besides, it’s fun when everyone worked together.” he replied and made his way to a nearby window before he started to clean it.
“That’s right! Don’t worry about it and just let us help~!” Tetora said as he did the same action as Hajime did. Maki was beginning to suspect something but nonetheless, kept quiet about it. Unlike Maki, Hanayo was beginning to feel guilty and decided to do her cleaning duty as well.
“I-I’ll go and stack the books on the bookshelf.” she told her red-haired friend before she went towards the bookshelf. Not soon after that, Midori offered to help her by placing the books in the shelf that Hanayo herself could not reached.
Maki let out a sigh before getting up from her seat. She made her way to grab one of the broom in the locker when suddenly another hand reached out and grabbed another broom. Turning around, she faced with Tomoya as he smiled at her.
“I think you could use an extra help for this one.” he said and Maki muttered a quiet ‘thank you’ before she began sweeping. She was thankful of his offer since sweeping the entire classroom can be tiring if she did it alone. The whole class was busy cleaning on their own until Hinata entered the class.
“Whoa! What happened here?” he asked, obviously surprised to see how lively the class right now. Tetora, who was wiping the window seconds ago, faced the the older twin with a grin.
“As you can see, we’re cleaning the classroom~!” he proudly announced.
Hinata looked around and as Tetora had said, everyone was cleaning. Everyone except him. Feeling a little left out, he pouted.
“Aww, how can you guys left me out of this? Meanies...” he looked away.
“Who was it again that ran out of the class as soon as the teacher left?” Tomoya mumbled to himself as he continued to sweep, not even bothered to look at the sulking boy.
“Then, why not join us?” Hanayo asked and almost immediately Hinata perked up.
“Really? Alright~!” Hinata cheered as he looked around to see what could be cleaned up. Maki however, quickly tried to stop him. Knowing his behaviour, she knew he was up to something.
“You know, we’re almost finished with the cleaning. So, I don’t think you need to worry about it.” she said and Hinata looked at her with a sad smile but somehow hinted something else behind it.
“Eh~? That’s not true. After all, no one haven’t clean this yet~” he picked up the dusters at the front. Upon seeing the item, everyone froze from their cleaning duty except for Hajime and Hanayo who were completely oblivious to what the older twin was implying. Hinata was smiling brightly but behind that smile, most of them could saw his mischievous intention.
“U-Um, I think that’s not really important. Besides, our teachers rarely use the blackboard... So it’s probably not even THAT dirty.” Tomoya tried to give a reasonable excuse and Hinata looked completely unamused at the attempt.
“But...he’s just trying to help. Why not just let him?” Hanayo asked the taller male beside her, confused at why was everyone preventing him from cleaning it.
“Don’t encourage him...!” he whispered in a forced way, surprising the petite female.
“Is that so? Then I’ll guess we’ll just have to check it out~!” he said as he took two dusters. By the time, everyone tried to stop him, it was already too late. Hinata slammed both of the dusters against each other and the impact caused a lot of white dust to appear and filled up the whole classroom.
“What the!? Hey, Hinata! Stop it! Clearly, that duster has a lot of dust in it!” Tetora exclaimed as he covered his mouth and nose with his arm.
“Since when does it has that much dust in it!?” Tomoya yelled, surprised at the size of the dust quickly filling up the room. Everyone was coughing from the dust but Hinata seemed to be fine with some of the dust stuck on his uniform as he grinned at them.
“See~? I knew this thing needs to be cleaned up.” he said and continued to slam the dusters again and again, ignoring his classmates’ pleas telling him to stop. As the white dust filled up the room, Hinata put down the dusters before looking over at his classmates as he waited for the white dust to disappear. The sight he saw immediately got him laughing out loud.
“Hahahahahahahaha~! Oh my god! You should see your faces!” he grabbed his sides from laughing too much. Apparently, all of them got white dust stuck on them, both face and uniform.
“Oh man, wait until I show this to everyone~!” he said and quickly snapped a picture from his mobile phone. Grinning at his classmates while he patted his uniform from the dust, he casually left the room before he said, “I got a good laugh for today, so thanks for that~! See you~!”
As soon as he left, Midori was the one to break the tense silence.
“Well, I guess we have extra work to do now...”
“HINATA!” they yelled, surprising the students and teachers alike who were in the same building as them.
