Practicals are up next, last leg of the finals week, which is weird because there’s a new transfer to 2-A: Benjamin Black. Rika recognizes the name, so her interest is piqued. However, it is practicals, so she sticks him with Aiya’s group, just because. (Its horrible, Black knows not how to navigate the kitchen. Sigh. Rika also had to do damage control after Black starts throwing wads of cash around. What are kids doing these days?!)
It’s a warzone between Row 1 and Row 2 groups, vying for top grade. Row 6 groups manage to pass— barely. They luck out as Rika isn’t supposed to eat raw meat, and they made steak tartare.
Lunch break rolls around and, as usual, Rika spends it with Suisei….who suggests that she socialize with the other high school faculty. Rika doesn’t like it, but she promises to try.
