V2Ch1: Beginning of rainbow-colored summer
As I approached the summer break of my sophomore year of high school, I came to a conclusion.
Life may suck.
But even if life sucks, there is a heaven.
Heaven for students is summer vacation. It would be difficult to find a student who does not get excited when he or she hears the word “summer vacation. That’s how grateful students are for summer vacation.
Of course, I am the type of person who gets excited.
In particular, this year’s summer vacation is very different from last year’s, and that makes me feel more and more in heaven.
First, the temperature in the room.
The air-conditioned rooms makes me forget the fact that it is in the middle of summer. In the countryside where I was until last year, it was quite cool even with the windows fully open, but the coolness was totally different. Where I used to live, we were poor, so we had to save on air conditioning. This is the first time in my life that my room is comfortable in midsummer.
Next is the hand.
Currently, I’m into app games.
“…… It’s god.”
I bought a smartphone on the first day of summer vacation, and I was hooked on app games. I was especially crazy about musical games in which two-dimensional beautiful girl idols would sing and dance for me. I had secretly wanted to try them ever since I saw the commercials.
I’ve never told anyone this, but I’ve always liked idols.
I like singing and dancing. But what I like most about idols is the way they wear cute outfits and smile. They always heal me. When I was withdrawn, I was healed by idol videos.
Perhaps it was my desire that led me to tell the girl I had known since childhood to become an idol. But I was not even aware that I was an idol lover when I was in elementary school.
The last reason for the increased sense of heaven is the rate of family outings.
In the countryside, my grandparents were always at home. That is why I had to be reserved in many ways. But here, it is quite common that there is no one at home. So I don’t have to worry about watching my favorite movies at high volume or playing app games.
…… me lying in an air-conditioned room playing app games, huh?
I was poking fun at my friend at school over there who emphatically told me that it’s the best thing ever, but apparently I was wrong. This life is great. Bliss is no exaggeration.
Why can’t I just use my computer?
No, no, don’t. I cannot lie down on a computer. Lying down in the middle of the room is the only way to feel a sense of superiority.
So, I was living a self-indulgent life from the beginning of the summer vacation.
A few days passed after the summer vacation.
So far, I have not had any contact with schoolmates. In fact, the only place I went out other than my part-time job was a convenience store, so I haven’t been in contact with anyone, let alone at school. At my part-time job, I have not met Kuromine because we seem to be on different hours and different dates.
Although I admit to being self-indulgent, I don’t just lie around and play with apps. In between playing games, I’m also doing my homework for the summer vacation. Originally, I am the type of person who puts all my energy into the second half of August, but this year I have a lot of things to do, so I thought I’d finish it first.
“…… Well, the semester’s over.”
In the air-conditioned room, I suddenly thought.
After all this time, I am still happy and surprised that I have made it through the summer vacation like this.
Immediately after I transferred to a new school, I felt hopeless. I was shaking with fear and trembling when I found out that my high school was full of those terrible demons. I moaned in bed on the first night when I found out that I was in the same class as Akazawa.
I remember the days when I was scared that I would be found out at any moment.
But how could they not notice me? Several times I wondered if they had found out, but since there was no action from the other side, I guess it was all right.
That’s how much I have changed from the past.
I have been reborn. I could really feel it.
But they had changed, too. From what I saw, they were not doing anything wrong, and the way they were spending their time at the school was that of a healthy student. It is hard to deny that they are goddesses, especially when combined with their appearance.
The Red Goddess is the idol of the school. She is kind to everyone and popular among both men and women.
The blue goddess is the energetic spirit of the school. She is a popular person who enjoys talking with everyone.
The Black Goddess is a solitary being. She is the envy of all women.
The White Goddess is a mass of moe attributes. She is popular as a mascot.
If they stay quiet, all the best. Let’s graduate to consuming uneventful and peaceful time.
……looking at those girls now, was it me who caused it?
It was a whole shady look. I had a dark personality. Maybe that’s what made me a target of bullying.
Well, it doesn’t matter.
As long as I wasn’t found out in the first semester, it is unlikely that I will be found out in the future. In the first place, I have a feeling that they have erased my existence from their minds. More than two years have passed since then. There’s no need to worry about it anymore.
It would be dangerous to do anything unnecessary. It would be safer for me to live my life as a mere student without thinking about anything. It’s summer vacation. Let’s stop worrying about it.
Let’s talk about my plans for the summer vacation.
This summer vacation is busy but not busy.
I have three events planned.
The first is the GPEX event Umi Aoyama has invited me to attend at the beginning of August. To be precise, it is a tournament for streamers. In order to participate in this event, Aoyama came out to me and Mahiro that she is [Aomi], a streamer. I knew this, so I was not surprised.
The next event was during the Bon festival in mid-August. I am going to stay at my grandparents’ house. I am personally very much looking forward to it.
Finally, there is the summer festival in late August. I will be going with some of my classmates. Yuuhi Akazawa will be there, but she is someone I have had a lot of contact with in the classroom. There should be no problem.
These are my plans for the summer.
In other words, I can live this happy life during the month of July.
I lay in bed, eating ice cream and staring at the screen of my smartphone. I am moved by the sight of idols singing and dancing.
I am happy.
I want to melt away like this.
While I was making a full expression on my face, I noticed footsteps approaching. Footsteps disappear in front of the door, and then I hear a knock at the door.
When I answered, the door opened.
Entering through the door was my stepsister – Kanon Nijitani.

Thanks for the chapter! With the way the MC talks about idols, is there a chance that an idol will appear and become the main girl? It also seems like white is the most hated, as expected

I love democracy

I really hope some new girl appears to be side by side with him (or a bro, I mean, he need to contact soon with the ex bro, they need to talk a lot of stuff), I really need that red and white get what they deserve and disappear, I need a dramatic closure for their sins.

Man more than 80% of the votes are for White, looks like she really is hated by almost all of the people. This chapter was peaceful without anything eventful happening. Well thanks for the chapter looking forward to next one 🙂.

I think she’s the less damaging b***h here, she hurt Shota in a critical moment but their relationship was shallow, like a make-believe couple with no especial connection.She’s a terrible human being and deserves whatever happens to her down the line but regarding Shota she just pulled a minor shitty move.

she pulled ntr against shota and u called it minor
JackcolnMay 5, 2023 at 11:28 am

Foreshadowing a real deal Idol will be the main heroine soon?? Ouuuuu i like it

Contact with 3DPD made him prefer 2D. Not surprised that white is the most hated. They’re all terrible, but at least the other three regret what they did.

Finally – step sis route starts now

Thank you for the chapter !

If Shota ends up with White or Red, the author goes to the top of the hate list.
JimraynorApril 16, 2022 at 4:38 pm
The Chance that he ends with red is the highest I think. Because when you go back to her chapter even his mother is ok that they meet again… Just on his terms.

White is the worst person. But I still hate Red the most. White’s story was a week long and very surface level, although it was at MC’s lowest point, but Red fully and knowingly took advantage of him in a position as as his supposed childhood friend, and basically harassed him for I don’t even know how long. She started the entire thing, which lead to the other events too. In a way she is responsible for every single thing that happened to him.
