V2Ch4: Black, white, and rainbow-colored swimsuits
One day in July, I was visiting a certain leisure facility.
This is because I was going to a swimming pool with the goddess, which is an event that any student of Tenkain Academy would surely be excited about.
However, even though I am a student of Tenkain Academy, my tension has been low since this morning. I even received a scolding from Kanon for sighing repeatedly.
A few days after the encounter at the shopping mall.
When they talked about going to the pool and checked the schedule, it seemed that everyone was free and we decided to go in July.
And on the day of the event. Unfortunately, everyone was going to be there.
I tried to think of a way to make myself absent, but in the end I could not come up with a good answer.
Despite my reluctance, Kanon had been excited since last night. Seeing her like that, I couldn’t say I didn’t want to go.
Our group stood out quite a bit on the move.
There was the black and white goddess, and then there was the famous good-looking Yakumo-kun Shirase. Kanon is also in the cute category, without any prejudice.
Of course we stood out. There was no way we wouldn’t stand out.
I was surrounded by people who looked at me and said, “Eh, isn’t he out of place?” It was a little bit painful.
Today is a weekday, even though it is summer vacation, and there are relatively few people. Even so, the place was full of people looking to cool off and meet new people. It reminded me of how great the city is.
“……It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it?
Yakumo-kun and I finished getting dressed ahead of the others and waited for the girls to come out.
“You can trust me today. I will protect Nijitani-san!”
As an older brother, these are reassuring words, but there is no point to protect her. I think you should protect your own sister at all costs rather than Kanon. Both in terms of popularity and stature.
This man Yakumo was incredibly high-spec.
He seemed to work out and had a stout body. His face is well-defined and elegant. According to Kanon, he is a central figure in the class and has leadership skills. Somehow, he reminded me of my best friend.
But Kanon had a slightly different impression of Yakumo-kun.
[“Let’s see…. He’s good-looking, but he is suspicious?]
I don’t think so.
There was nothing suspicious about Yakumo-kun’s behavior. Unlike me, he didn’t give the beautiful women who passed by a lecherous glance. Rather, the beautiful women were glancing at Yakumo-kun from a while ago, and their eyes were shining.
Incidentally, I have been keeping my eyes on a group of what looked like college girls since a while ago. This is already a man’s nature, so I guess it can’t be helped, yeah.
I never thought there would be a day when I would come to the pool with him, though …….
I used to have mixed feelings about Yakumo-kun. The day will come when we will be standing next to each other like this, life is really unknowable.
” Uhm……… Nijitani-senpai. What was the Nijitani-san like in the past?”
Suddenly, he spoke to me.
“In the past?”
“Yes, we share a lot in common.”
I’ve decided that Kanon and I are not step-siblings, but real siblings. The reason for this is that I don’t want people to think that we are separable because we are step-siblings.
Therefore, Yakumo-kun thinks that I know Kanon from the past. This question is very natural.
“You can call me by my name. If you use my last name, it will be too much like Kanon’s.”
“I understand. Shota-senpai.”
“So, about Kanon huh”
“Yes. …… What kind of girl was she?”
How shall I answer?
There is no information that I know. Kanon said she had been to Shirase’s house once, and she might have known Yakumo-kun as well. He may know more about the past than I do. However, I can’t let him find out that we are step-siblings.
“…… Plain, I guess?”
She’s a pretty plain person. Well, she was cocky at home, but outside, she was not good at chatting with people. Once you get to know her, she’ll become more aggressive, but it sometimes takes a while before you get to know her.
I speak knowingly.
I thought of Kuromine in my head.
I took the liberty of saying so because I thought they were similar types. I was not wrong. In fact, at home, Kanon is often playing with her phone or reading shoujo manga. She also likes to read novels. She is definitely an indoor person.
“And she’s a good cook.”
“S-She can cook huh”
“O-ou ……, it’s pretty good.”
Together with my mother, she often cooks. Her cooking skills are quite good. As someone who can’t cook, I admire her cooking skills regardless of how good she is at it.
Yakumo-kun’s eyes were sparkling.
“How nice. I will also—-“
And then, just as he was about to say.
“Thank you for waiting!”
A tap on the shoulder.
When I turned around, there stood Kanon.
Kanon was wearing a light blue bikini that she had bought at the mall the other day. It was a simple swimsuit, but it suited her well.
The material was good, even though she was my stepsister. It gave her a healthy impression. It was very good.
“…… Does it look good on me?”
“It looks good on you.”
Kanon smiles with satisfaction when I say so.
She said it was the first time in her life that she was wearing a bikini, but she looked good enough. If we were not siblings, I would have gazed at her.
“Huh, where are the other two?”
“I got out first. It’s too hard with those two.”
“Kanon would be in a fog if she appeared with the goddess. Besides, I wanted to see Onee-sama in her swimsuit in a properly finished state.”
That’s a weird obsession.
Then Kanon turns her gaze next to me.
“I’d like to hear what you think, Shirase. How do you like Kanon in swimsuit?”
Yakumo-kun froze when asked.
“U-uhm …… it’s wonderful. It’s truly form of art”
“I didn’t know there was such a thing as a goddess in real life.”
“The goddess is Shirase’s sister, no?”
“No, what I’m trying to say is that it’s a figurative expression–“
The calm impression he had given earlier was gone, and he was clearly tempestuous. His face was bright red and he was trying his best to somehow express his beauty with his body language.
…… this guy, maybe he likes Kanon?
I’m not particularly sharp when it comes to matters of love, but I’m not dense either.
Yakumo-kun’s attitude is clearly strange. Rather, I think this is a completely affectionate type of reaction. No, but it’s too obvious.
[“Let’s see. He’s good-looking, but he is suspicious?]
As I was slightly taken back by Yakumo-kun, who was so easy to understand, I noticed a change in the air around him.
The depressingly bustling noise stopped and immediately afterward there was a buzz.
“Uwa, she is so cute!”
“She looks like a doll”
Such voices shook my eardrums.
It was Mayuki Shirase who walked through the hustle and bustle. A petite girl who had caught the attention of everyone around her approached us.
She was wearing a white bandeau bikini. With plenty of frills, it looked more like a bikini type maid’s uniform than a swimsuit. It might be described as a Lolita-style bikini. Her hair was in twin-tails.
She was expressing mock cuteness with her whole body.
Shirase approached Yakumo-kun as she was.
“What do you think, Yakumo?”
“Yes. I think it’s good. Very sisterly.”
It was a curt response. However, it would be a normal response for a real sister and brother.
For some reason, Shirase’s tension was blatantly lowered.
“……Nijitani-san, what do you think of my swimsuit?”
“Ah, ou. I think you look good.”
“Thank you very much.”
After inorganic thanks, Shirase let out a dark breath and turned her head down.
What is this girl?
Come to think of it, she had a desperate look on her face when she invited me to the pool. She was excited until she changed her clothes, and then suddenly she had this look on her face.
As I tilted my head slightly, the pool, which had been getting calmer, became noisy again. The buzz was far louder than when Shirase appeared earlier.
I had expected this.
Along with numerous stares, Kuromine walked in.
Let’s dare to use the exaggerated expression “descended” here.
Kuromine was wearing a plain black bikini. The bikini was very destructive when worn by Kuramine, who has an outstanding style. The contrast between her long shiny black hair, white unblemished skin, and black bikini was even beautiful.
…… I never expected that plain girl to become like this.
The most important thing to remember is that she can’t go wrong with a good bikini. She has a slim waist, long legs, soft hip line, and ample bosom. She has a body that should be showing and a body that should be retracted.
All eyes around the pool were glued to the black goddess who had landed in the pool. It was as if a supermodel had appeared.
I was reminded of this once again. The pride of our school, the “Four colour goddess” is not for show.
Well, the one I was most excited about was—-
“It’s wonderful! Now that is art!”
It was Kanon.
Kanon twisted the word “art” around when she was praised, but I don’t think that’s the right word to use when praising Kuromine.
“D-don’t worry. Nijitani-san isn’t losing either!”
For some reason, Yakumo-kun praises Kanon at this timing.
“There is no way Kanon can beat Onee-sama. Or rather, she doesn’t want to win.”
“Listen. Onee-sama is the supreme one. If you want to praise Kanon, you must first praise Onee-sama”
“I-I see. Kuromine-senpai is truly a wonderful goddess–“
Just as Yakumo-kun started to praise Kuromine, I heard a “tsk” a click of the tongue. I let it slide because I thought it was my imagination.
My eyes met Kuromine’s.
Immediately, she made a gesture as if she was hiding her breasts.
Oi, that makes me look like a pervert.
Somehow I felt like I was being treated like a pervert, so I turned my gaze away. The college girls I had just seen were talking happily. The gorgeous atmosphere soothed my heart.
But the next moment. Kuromine covered my vision. Then she came close to my ear.
“…… Uhm, what do you think?”
Don’t suddenly talk to me in a plain girl style.
“I’m wearing a bikini for the first time in my life. I’m a little embarrassed.”
“Don’t take it too hard …….”
“Doesn’t it look good on me?”
“………… it looks good on you.”
I was frustrated, but I didn’t want to lie.
She hurriedly removed her hands and left the scene.
After that, Kuromine was praised in every possible way by Kanon while she was being sticky with her. The scene of Yakumo-kun praising Kanon was like a contrived scene unfolding in front of my eyes.
Huh, come to think of it, where’s Shirase?
Shirase, who was out of sight, was a wallflower. She stared at the three of them, who seemed to be enjoying themselves.
From the look of Yakumo-kun, I guess my prediction was wrong. Shirase is not in love with her younger brother. I don’t think that there has been any such thing in the past. It would be difficult to continue a sister-brother relationship if there had been some kind of relationship in the past.
……I guess she used her younger brother to just break up with me at that time.
That’s enough about that.
The problem is her attitude now. What is she planning?

Oi… Don’t back track on that convoluted theory that was somehow 100% accurate!
XiloApril 21, 2022 at 12:58 am
Thank you for the chapter
SimakApril 21, 2022 at 1:50 am
“What is she plotting?” would fit, too. If the author thought that ending would get White some sympathy, no dice.
Thanks for the chapter.

Well, Shota is f*****g surrounded by a romantic catastrophe right now. Not that it’s complicated but more like the group is bringing misery wherever it goes lmao

Thank you for the chapter !
Strawberry MilkshakeApril 21, 2022 at 4:26 am
So this chapter basically, Shirase(lol) looking at Yakumo who looking at Kanon who looking at Kuromine who looking at Shota.
VoidPaceMay 1, 2023 at 11:17 pm
And Shota looking at college girls lol

“Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer” seems to apply here. Feeling awkward being around the love triangle that is Kuromine, Kanon, and Yakumo (not realizing it is actually a love quadrilateral with him in it), Shota probably sees White as the only other logical option to hang out with. It would be weird and rude to go off on his own, and this way he can try to preempt any plot Shirase comes up with. I could be wrong, but this seems like it could be the beginning of an uneasy, loose alliance between the two…

Why didn’t he just stay home?
CarlosApril 21, 2022 at 10:37 am
Probably didn´t want to let his sister down. If he stayed home there would be a chance the event would be cancled and the sister would miss out on hanging out on her idol I guess.

White (b***h) –> Yakumo (nice guy) –> Kanon (Best character) –>> Black (Best among the four) –>> Shota (Overall Winner)

the contrast between the mc’s monologue describing white and him describing black proves author dislikes white too
commentorApril 3, 2023 at 7:06 pm
sometimes the author implies that the mc is a handsome dude and there are moments like this, so i dont quite get whether the mc is popular or not, at first i thought he was popular dude when that neko and red were talkin about him in the karaoke
