Kazuki isn’t really sure where it started, is the thing. Takuya just one day went up to him and told him to fess up some money for the betting pool. When he asked what it was about, Takuya gave him an exasperated expression and a simple, “What else would we bet about? Our captain and Nanase-san’s relationship, of course.”
The whole team was overly invested in it, so it was understandable that someone would think to earn money through it.
Sousuke, Nitori and Momo were excluded from the secret, because as Iwashimizu succinctly explained, “they either have unfair advantage, or they would tell Captain”. It was true and everyone knew it.
Kazuki didn’t want to bet, because it seemed really crass to do so, but Takuya just gave him his best eyebrow-raise and waited him out. Takuya knew him too well, so Kazuki took out some bills from his pocket and said, “They’ll probably be together already by the time they’re back from their trip to Australia, wouldn’t they?”
Takuya grinned, shrugging. “A popular choice, but not the one I chose.”
“And what did you choose, then?”
“They’re already hiding their relationship from us,” Takuya answered seriously, looking smug.
