Shortcut, what a lovely word, thinks Houtarou as he slips away into paradise. Eru grabs him by the shoulder and gently rocks him back and forth while calling his name. This is enough to snap him back to reality.
He coughs and comments how the announcement would be more effective if it were made during school tomorrow morning. This is because Kamiyama High School has a lot of clubs, but still many students go home after school.
But they still made the announcement after school, because the reason behind it occurred after school. In addition to this, whatever the case may be, it is so important that they can't wait until tomorrow to give the announcement. Shibazaki-sensei is betting on Student X is still at school. Eru looks Houtarou right in the eye and asks him if he thinks that this smells fishy to him, and he answers that it does.
Next, Eru asks him why they use the phrase, smells fishy, in the first place. He quickly replies that he has no clue, but the way he said it sounds like he isn't going to tell her. Eru took his words to mean that and puffs out her cheeks like a blowfish.
Houtarou's next deduction is that Shibazaki-sensei didn't want to make public whatever it was that Student X has done. However, they don't know if this is only temporary, or if they never want the situation to be made public.
Is that because he didn't say why Student X was called out, asks Eru. That too, but it's pretty clear from the that announcement, replies Houtarou as he hands her notebook back over to her. Eru reads what she wrote down at the start of the challenge, but she then looks back at Houtarou and confesses that she doesn't see what he sees.
You're right, comments Eru. It is normally some guy named Morishita-sensei who makes these announcements. Houtarou next asks Eru where the counseling room is located, and she answers that it is on the second floor of the main school building. But, replies Houtarou, Shibazaki-sensei called Student X to the staff room. This means that the problem is major enough that they feel the need to contain the problem to the administrative level.
At least, it could be, thinks Houtarou. Eru looks very worriedly from Houtarou to her notebook and back again several times before saying that if his theory is correct, then Student X is in a very bad situation. He supposes that she is right. Then that means, says Eru, and Houtarou finishes her sentence by adding to it that Student X is involved in a crime.
After a short break, Houtarou leans back in his chair and thinks that all of this is just a game that he is playing with Eru. He realizes that what he says doesn't have to be true. And besides, Houtarou reminds himself, all of this started just to prove to eru that his theories doesn't always have to be correct. Eru interrupts his thoughts and asks him what kind of crime was it.
Houtarou holds up a hand and tells her to wait. First, he says, let's assume that this theory of his is correct. There are no police at this school, so there's a good chance that they have sent over a related official.
Assuming that a crime took place, it must have happened on the 31st of October, as indicated in the announcement.
And yet, the announcement was made today, and seemingly in a hurry. Houtarou takes this to mean that the investigators only just now have made the request. But they could also have made the request over the time, comments Eru.
That's certainly true, concedes Houtarou, however he mentions that the police would probably want to apprehend Student X immediately. To do that, they would need to come here in person to make the arrest.
So Student X was called just now because he has some connection to the culprit, asks Eru. That is possible, answers Houtarou. During this whole process, Eru went from a very excited and happy individual to one who is seriously worried about Student X. So much so that Houtarou has to remind her that this is all just a game they are playing.
Being reminded that this is just a game seems to have alleviated some of her worries and she relaxes somewhat back into her usual mood. Houtarou presses onward while Eru's mood is still better.

He says that if it weren't for the culprit, then Shibazaki-sensei wouldn't have rushed the announcement. Now, Houtarou asks what crime did Student X commit. He asks for idea from Eru. She ponders the question for a moment and then says that shoplifting is the first thing to come to her mind.
Or perhaps the crime was committed in a totally different place, and the investigators learned of someone matching the description at Koubundou, and so based on that testimony, they have come here to the school to follow up on that tip. Now if that's the case, comments Eru, then the crime could be anything.
Houtarou admits in his thoughts that this isn't a bad theory coming from Eru given the short amount of time that she had, but besides theft, none of the other crimes are possible.
This he says out loud and Eru asks why. Houtarou responds with simple logic that seems to defy Eru at every turn.
The incident happened at Koubundou, so they can assume that Student X appeared to be shopping. At this point, Houtarou falls back into his mind and muses. He wonders if the announcement was meant for the culprit to come clean, but he feels that, that doesn't make any sense.
Houtarou suddenly announces his theory: The investigators know nothing about Student X, but they believe that Student X will show themselves after the announcement. If it were Houtarou who committed the crime and he heard the announcement just now he will think that the investigators still don't know how he did it and he thinks that he can get away with the crime at this rate, while laughing like an insane witch.
What he would do is not helping the problem. Back to square one, Houtarou wonders under which circumstances Student X will reveal themselves after hearing that announcement. He wonders if it is remorse about the crime, but that option is discarded almost as soon as he thinks it because the human conscious would have done that already.
While Houtarou muses out loud and in his mind, Eru again doesn't look to be in the best condition. Houtarou suddenly looks at his watch and says that for now they should ignore the question of the crime.
For now, they will just assume that whatever crime was committed, Student X regretted the crime and apologized for doing it in a letter. That's just too cut and dry for my tastes, but in these mysteries, you can't bog yourself down with mindless ramblings over a theory that may or may not be correct. Houtarou asks Eru what the date is today, and she answers that it is the 1st of November.
This means that October 31 was yesterday. Now he asks Eru why did Shibazaki-sensei not say yesterday during the announcement and instead said the 31st of October. Eru strikes this as odd as well and ponders why he would do that. That is because he had something in front of him that said the 31st of October, says Houtarou while answering his own question.
Now he asks why the police know that Student X was involved if they know next to nothing about them. Above all, why were they certain that Student X would reveal themselves if they made that announcement. And that is because, states Houtarou, Student X wrote a letter of apology to Koubundou.
Hyouka Episode 19
The owners would then take the letter to the police, and they in turn took the letter to Kamiyama High School. That explains their certainty that Student X will come forward after the announcement has been made. Eru pleads for Houtarou to wait a moment, everything he is saying is going by too fast for her, she needs to slow down. Irisu suggested that she use her feminine wiles, but Chitanda didn't really manage to pull that off. Houtarou is a pragmatic person In the second half of episode 1, Houtarou has Satoshi help him fabricate the story of the secret club.
Because, as he himself notes, if he hadn't, Chitanda would have dragged him off to the music room to investigate the so-called ghost that supposedly appeared there. In a sense, he chose the better of two bad options. While they wait for the librarian in episode 2, Chitanda becomes curious about why the school history book gets loaned out every day.
At first, he tries to get Chitanda to stop pestering him, but soon realizes that refusing her any more would actually be more costly than just acceding to her demands. Houtarou, being a very pragmatic sort of person, will sometimes do a small amount of work in order to avoid having to do even more work. Chitanda is pretty pushy In episode 2, Chitanda actually grabs Houtarou and drags him to the library to search for the club's archived anthologies, thus justifying his fear in the second half of episode 1 of being forced to go all the way to the music room.
Later in the episode, with the mystery of the frequently-returned book, Chitanda shoves the book in Houtarou's face until he finally gives in. Point here is, Chitanda can be a pushy kind of person. Sometimes, Houtarou just doesn't have anything better to do As his sister notes in her letter from Varanasi, Houtarou should join the Classics Club because if for no other reason he isn't doing anything better with his time.
In episode 3, when Houtarou agrees to help Chitanda out to a certain degree with the matter of her uncle, he thinks back to his sister's letter and figures that indeed, there's not really any good reason for him to say no - as long as it doesn't involve going too far out of his way. The whole thing took way too much energy. So he suddenly stood up and voiced somewhat of an incoherent sentence that was intended to mean he had to go now then grabbed his bag and started leaving.
To his surprise, Eru rose up and stopped him by grasping his shirt from behind. Eru took a deep breath her eyes darting about at anything that was not him as she tried to say something but still couldn't muster the courage to do so and Houtarou just waited. He didn't blame her a bit because he too was struggling just as hard to find the right words to say to her.
I don't know why I haven't done that before. I like how your lips felt against mine. All those unfamiliar thoughts unconsciously rushed across his mind and Houtarou was completely stunned but the only thing he said to her was the first step of his sister's advice. Honestly, he never wanted to see her like this especially when he of all people was the cause of it. Maybe his sister was really a genius or even a fortune-teller for this matter. Maybe she was right when she said that he liked her.
Hesitantly, Houtarou dropped his bag on the table and edged his way toward Eru. It looked like she was about to say something again but with one motion, Houtarou grasped her shoulder, his other hand tilting her head up from behind her neck and then he kissed her square on the lips. This must have been the rose-colored high school life he had been avoiding for so long.
His heart was beating so fast like it was ready to burst out when Eru had recovered from her initial shock and shyly pressed her soft lips back against his.
Something in his chest was snapped and Houtarou felt like he was helplessly falling deeper and deeper into those beautiful eyes. Instinctively, he started to move pulling her in closer because he wanted to feel more and more of her. Eru shut her eyes tight. She fisted the front of his shirt and let out a gasp of surprise when Houtarou was bold enough to give her lower lip a soft nibble. Both of them were blushing madly when their lips parted, breathless and delirious.
