When I arrived at the park, out of breath, there was Himari and Mifuyu with a surprised look on her face.
“W-Why is Yusei here….”
“Why you ask, well…..”
I glanced at Himari.
Himari looked straight at me.
I already understood that.
It’s to make up with Mifuyu.
I looked at Mifuyu with serious eyes.
Mifuyu flinched a little.
“I-I can’t take this anymore…! I, I keep hurting Yusei! This is why you’re better off without me!”
That scream was the cry of Mifuyu’s soul.
She is covered in grief and is truly a tragic heroine.
No, not quite.
“Hey, that doesn’t change the fact that Mifuyu is the perpetrator, does it?”
Himari looks at me like, “What are you talking about?”
“Did you think that pretending to be a tragic heroine like that would get you forgiveness? “I did a bad thing. I am sorry”. Society is not so naive that you can be forgiven just for that.”
The end of my sentence gets a little stronger.
“Hey, Mifuyu. What is this ideal you have for me? Am I just a tool who does whatever people say? Or am I a righteous hero who helps those in need?”
“Too bad I’m neither. I’m just a piece of sh*t. That’s the real me.”
Mifuyu fell silent and turned her head down.
“You shut up!”
Himari tried to say something, but I shut her down.
“Hey, why don’t you say something?”
I couldn’t hear her voice.
“What did you say?”
“But I still want to accept Yusei!”
How can you be so…
I want to make up with Mifuyu, but at worst, I don’t think we can go back to the way we were.
“But why do you want to go that far….”
I said what I was thinking.
Mifuyu’s face was…
“Of course it’s because I’m your sister.”
Her face was full of determination.
“L-Listen okay? I, I said a lot of terrible things to Mifuyu. I shunned you coldly, and, well, I said some of the worst things.”
I don’t want a sister.
I should not have said that, even in jest, but at that time I said those words without hesitation.
What has been said cannot be undone, and it will remain as a fact.
I can’t undo the fact that I hurt Mifuyu so badly, and it’s no use if we can’t go back to our original relationship.
That’s what I thought.
But Mifuyu didn’t think so.
She was saying that she would accept me, a loser, as her brother.
“When you say it like that, I wasn’t the one who hurt you in the first place. So we’re even. Okay?”
“Yeah, I’m sorry for everything I’ve done. Nee-chan. –Ah?”
No, what was I saying?!
Nee-chan!? I never said that to her once before!
“Yu-Yusei!? You just called me Nee-chan… A-Again! Say it again!”
“T-That’s right, Yusei! I-I’m also kind of a Nee-chan…”
“Haa!? Himari, what are you talking about!”
“I-It’s okay! Just a little bit!”
“It’s not okay!”
The two of them were making a fuss.
“I’m going home now! Mifuyu!”
“Yu-Yusei? Can you call me sister one more time?”
I haven’t talked to Mifuyu like this in a long time.
I’m happy, I’m having fun.
That feeling was very big right now.
I can be friends with Mifuyu at home again.
I had assumed that there was a rift between me and Mifuyu that would never heal.
But my sister didn’t care about that.
We were able to get back together as if the crack had never existed.
I respect my sister.
But I was worried in my heart.
I wondered if it would be so easy to make up with everyone.
No, there was no use thinking about that.
I had to focus on the future.
I should have thought more seriously when that guy stopped showing up.
If I had thought about it even a little, maybe it wouldn’t have happened that way.
And the boy doesn’t realize.
He has forgotten his true purpose.
The boy has yet to find his true purpose, his own self.
