It was regrettable that we hadn’t been able to steal the win this time. If I had included both Horikita and Kōenji, it’s true that we might have won. But even so, it still wouldn’t have been a guarantee either.
Furthermore, we were now facing the reality that, if the Modern Literature Test were to be drawn next, we would pretty much just lose automatically.
Class C simply didn’t have anyone left whose academic abilities would be good enough to surpass those of Class A.
With this, the lead we had was gone. The score had once again evened out at two wins and two losses.

And so began the drawing for the fifth event.

It was the third event in a row that had been proposed by Class A.
Normally, this would be an unfavorable turn of events for us, but this particular event was a special exception to that. Keisei was probably feeling elated right about now. After all, this was the event that Katsuragi had promised to ease up on.
However, it was still too early to celebrate. If Katsuragi doesn’t get chosen, our fleeting fantasies of winning would disappear.
“Another one of our events. We absolutely can’t afford to lose this one.”
Disregarding Sakayanagi’s chatter, I went with the strategy Horikita had come up with, selecting Kōenji Rokusuke and Matsushita Chiaki to participate.
Between the two of them, I had Matsushita wear the headset. Even if I had Kōenji wear it, there was no reason to believe that he was going to listen to me anyway.
Horikita’s decision to assign Kōenji to participate in the Flash Mental Arithmetic event was probably the correct one. Instead of being based on whichever class had a higher overall score, the win would be given to the class of the student who placed first. There was a chance that Kōenji might meet our expectations and pick up the win. But, just in case he didn’t take the event seriously, Matsushita would at least be there as a backup. Matsushita has a quick mind for math, so the plan had always been to use her in the Math Test or Flash Mental Arithmetic events. Even if we had used Matsushita in the math exam, it still didn’t mean that we would’ve won, so you could say that the fact that we could still make use of her had been a blessing in disguise.
The students Sakayanagi chose were Katsuragi Kōhei and Tamiya Emi.
According to the information Katsuragi had leaked to us, Tamiya’s abilities weren’t all that impressive.
