“Bassist and drummer… Right! Mio-chan and Ritsu-chan are bassists and drummers! Just let them join senpai’s band!”

Li Yalin’s words are very direct, and what he means is obvious to everyone. However, the first one to react is Hirasawa Yui, who is usually known for being cute.

She is always cute and stupid, but she’s unexpectedly quick in a critical moment.

Just as Li Yalin’s voice fell, she immediately turned her attention to Akiyama Mio and Tainaka Ritsu.


As soon as dumb Yui said this, Akiyama Mio was immediately dumbfounded, while on Tainaka Ritsu’s side, she pointed to her nose in disbelief, with a strange expression on her face.

“Stop joking, how could Mio-chan and I have the ability, that’s the regional chosen finalists! We’ll be on the stage of the Hot Holiday Music Festival if we win, okay?”

The next moment, Tainaka Ritsu shook her head speechlessly. She knew her thing clearly. The drums was a musical instrument she was good at, and she also imagined that one day she could participate in a music festival and even set foot on the Budokan stage.

But that is just the fantasy of a girl who loves music. Fantasy is just a fantasy, which is impossible to achieve.

Li Yalin can participate in the selection event and maybe also participate in the music festival. That’s because he has the strength and has been recognized by many fans.

But she and Mio-chan are just two ordinary female high school students. Selection event? Music festival?

Don’t be kidding, all they can do is to be an obscure audience in the audience.

It’s simply overthinking about going on stage.

“Yeah, Ritsu-chan is right, we can’t.”

Tainaka Ritsu spoke, and Akiyama Mio also come to her senses.

Like Ritsu, she yearn to become the most dazzling light on the stage, but that was just a fantasy of a girl. She would definitely not even dare to think about going on stage.

As Li Yalin’s band bassist and to be on the stage of the final round with him, it made her very excited, but that does not mean she can turn her excitement into action, she does not think she really has the strength.

“Why not? I think it’s pretty good.”

Just as Akiyama Mio and Tainaka Ritsu both shook their heads, thinking that dumb Yui was joking, Li Yalin suddenly spoke, and instantly silenced the entire light music club.

Very good?

What does this mean?

Senpai feels… it was okay?

“I am lacking in bassists and drummers. I would really appreciate it if Akiyama-san and Tainaka-san can help me.”

Having said that much, Li Yalin tried to bring MIO and Ritsu over. Although their strength is still lacking, it is just a lack of skills and can be made up with practice.

All problems are not a problem in front of Li Yalin. As long as he choose a good song for the competition, practiced, and co-ordinated, the champion is simply at his fingertips.

Of course, more importantly, he feels that this is a good opportunity for MIO to be on the stage, and make her go one step further to not fear the stage.

As long as she can get used to it, it shouldn’t be a problem in the future to let her play or sing.

“This… how does this work…”

“Yeah… how could we possibly…”

As soon as Li Yalin said this, his invitation became very obvious, but it made Akiyama Mio even more flustered.

In fact, not only Akiyama Mio, but even Tainaka Ritsu, who is always carefree, is shaking her head like a rattle.

“We haven’t tried it yet, how can you know that it’s not working? What’s more, I really can’t find a helper now. Akiyama-san, Tainaka Ritsu-san, can you help me with this?”

Looking at the two girls who keep denied themselves, Li Yalin’s corner mouth raised a faint smile.

He knew that these two girls were not indifferent, but don’t have much confident. In other words, the most difficult thing was the beginning. As long as they agreed, it would be considered a success.

Now is the most critical step!


Li Yalin’s request made Akiyama Mio and Tainaka Ritsu panic. They don’t know what to do now.


Or agree?

They agreed within their heart, but they are afraid that they are not capable enough. But if they refuse. First, they couldn’t face senpai, and secondly, there was indeed a trace of unwillingness in their heart.

After all, that is a stage that many musicians can’t reach, but they can easily step on it. They may not have a second chance in this life if they miss it.

“Mio-chan, Ritsu-chan, senpai helped us so much. We shouldn’t refuse when he needs us.”

When Akiyama Mio and Tainaka Ritsu were in a dilemma, Kotobuki Tsumugi, who had been silent for a while, suddenly spoke up.

Don’t look at this ojou-sama who rarely speaks, but she unexpectedly possesses an insight, as if she could see through Li Yalin’s mind at a glance, and she also saw through the thoughts of her two companions at the same time.

Akiyama Mio and Tainaka Ritsu was speechless when Kotobuki Tsumugi spoke.

Yeah, senpai has helped them so much, how can they shrink back when he needs them?

But… can they do it?

“Unfortunately, I didn’t learn bass or drums, otherwise I could help senpai.”

With Kotobuki ojou-sama’s persuasion, the scales in MIO and Ritsu’s hearts have already begun to tilt, but what really shakes them is dumb Yui self-talking.

Hirasawa Yui doesn’t have Kotobuki ojou-sama insight, and can’t see through Li Yalin’s mind, but she can always bring people surprises.

Yes, this is something that neither Yui-chan and Tsumugi-chan can do, only they can do it.

Even if it is just to help senpai, they shouldn’t refuse them!



Perhaps because they are a childhood friend, MIO and Ritsu looked at each other and immediately understood each other true intentions.

Yes, it’s time to make a decision!

“We understand senpai, let us help senpai!”

“Although we still have many shortcomings, please take care of use in the future!”

Facing Li Yalin again, the two girls Akiyama Mio and Tainaka Ritsu had very firm eyes.

This is really good news, isn’t it?

In fact, Li Yalin was also a little surprised. He originally wanted to spend some time, and even prepared for a long-term battle. After all, apart from Ritsu, MIO is not so easy to convince.

After all, she is so timid and shy.

But it went so well, thanks to Kotobuki ojou-sama and dumb Yui’s assists.


It went well, but is it really that easy to solve Akiyama Mio’s shyness?
