…… My name is Nanako Ina
I’m in my second year of high school, and for some reason I’m staying with my sister, Akari, at Sensei …… Okaya’s house.
On that day, I went for a walk in the neighborhood with my friend Chobi.
Chobi is a cute, fluffy doggy.
While I was on vacation, I had a friend of mine take care of Chobi for me.
Today, I went to the friend’s house to pick up Chobi.
Chobi was very energetic and wanted to go for a walk right away.
And when Chobi came back from that walk …… it was evening.
When I unlocked the door and went inside, I found …….
Sensei’s sister was sitting on the sofa in the living room.
…… Midoriko-chan puts her phone in her pocket.
W-What’s going on?
I’ve recently met her.
She is Sensei’s sister, but she doesn’t look much like him.
I would say she is a bit nervous……
But I don’t think she’s a bad girl.
She is also Sensei’s sister …….
But it must be the first time I met her alone, so I’m a little nervous …….
“…… You know”
“Don’t just stand there. Why don’t you sit down?”
“R-right. Excuse me.”
I sat down in front of Midoriko-chan with Chobi in my arms.
“…… No, why are you sitting there? Not that I really care. You can do whatever you want.”
“Eh, ah, y-yes”
Huh? She’s not as scary as she was this morning.
In the morning, I thought she was a bit of a yankee, or perhaps a type I was uncomfortable with.
I sat down next to Midoriko-chan.
We’re both silent.
Uuu…… This is awkward.
I’m not very good at talking to people I don’t know.
Akari calls me I’m Komiyusho. How terrible of her……. [TL: Think of Komi-san, communication disorder]
“…… You know.”
Midoriko-chan stares at me.
“…..Let’s get straight to business”
This little sister eyes are too sharp
I look like a prey. Kuh-uh.
Suddenly, Midoriko-chan stretches out her hand.
No way! Am I really that annoying?!
Hey, Chobi~ Save me!
“An An♡” (Bark bark)
Aah no, Chobi is barking as usual. Ugh, you cute pet.
“…… Can I touch that dog?”
What was that now?
“…… So, um, can I touch that dog you’re holding to your chest right now?”
Midoriko-chan said, her cheeks turning red.
If I’m not mistaken, she said she wanted to touch Chobi.
Pon, I felt a pang.
I understand, Akechi-kun. [TL: No idea who that it]
This girl …… loves dogs!
Great deduction of me.
I think it might be a good idea to become a detective in the future.
“…… Just for a bit.”
“Ah, uhm h-here you go”
I was about to give her Chobi.
Chobi is looking at me with sad eyes!
Don’t worry, Chobi, I’m not going to sell you.
I’ll just lend you to her, understand?
All right, Nanako-chan! (Speaking to herself)
I finish my (one-way) conversation with Chobi and hand Chobi over to Midoriko-chan.
Midoriko-chan stretched out her arms, but did not try to hold Chobi.
“Is it possible….. that you don’t know how to carry a dog?”
Kaa….Midoriko-chan’s cheeks turn red.
“…… Not really.”
She doesn’t seem to know how to carry Chobi, as she doesn’t want to accept it.
Pon, it came
She has also….communication disorder!
People who has communication disorder are attracted to each other.
It’s because we’re in the shadows!
“Don’t think so hard. Right, it’s just like this, gentle, gentle.”
I hold Chobi in my arms and demonstrate it to her.
Changing the position so that Midoriko-chan can easily understand.
Pon pon, Midoriko-chan watched my gestures earnestly.
After a while, I handed Chobi to Midoriko-chan.
Kuun, I don’t want to be separated from you, Nanako-chan! (self conversation)
Don’t worry, Chobi, I’ll meet you again soon!
And that’s the story of the skit.
Midoriko-chan’s cheeks relax as she holds Chobi in her arms.
I’m so happy to hear you praise my friend as cute!
“What’s her name, ……?”
“Chobi… If I’m right that’s the heroine of Digimasu, no?”
I’ve never heard of it.
“….S-Seriously, you’re living in modern Japan and you don’t know Digimasu?”
“A-Akari often says it’s very popular.”
“…… Seriously, you’ve never seen it before. It’s amazing, it’s a natural treasure.”
As we talked, Midoriko-chan didn’t have the scary image I had at first.
I thought she was just a normal girl …….
“…… Then why is her name Chobi?”
“I got the name Chobi from Animal Doctor!”
“…… Do? What?”
“EH! Midoriko-chan, don’t you know anything about animal doctors?”
A manga that’s so funny, you don’t even know about!
“You’re wasting your life!”
“…… O-ou, ……, you’re suddenly very excited.”
This is a serious situation!
There should be no one who doesn’t know about Animal Doctor!
“I’ll be right back! I’ll get the manga!”
“…… Ah, wait!”
I went to my room.
I’m going to bring 12 books that are sitting on the bookshelf.
“This! This is the famous animal doctor!”
I pile the books on the sofa.
“…… Oh, Manga”
“Yes! There’s also a paperback version, and I have that one, too.”
“……Heh? No, I didn’t say anything about reading it. ……”
“No! Please read …… so you don’t lose your life! Come on!”
I took the first volume and pointed it straight at Midoriko-chan.
She was a little taken back, while she sighs …….Haa
“….I get it”
“I’m home. Sister. The Akarin is back!”
Akari came home from her part-time job at night.
“…… This is really interesting.”
“Right! Hey, Chobi here is so cute.”
We were totally excited about talking about animal doctors.
That’s how much this is a divine manga.
I really recommend it!
Everyone …..should buy it!
” Sister ……, and you. What are you doing?”
Akari stared at Midoriko-chan.
From what happened in the morning, my sister probably doesn’t have a good impression of Midoriko-chan.
“What kind of attitude is that?”
I stood in front of my sister …… and said.
“Akari, calm down.”
After rolling her eyes in surprise, Akari nodded her head.
“Midoriko-chan, she may be blunt, but she’s not a bad person.”
Pokan…..Midoriko-chan is opening her mouth.
“W-What’s wrong with you, sister? Out of the blue?”
“Midoriko-chan and I are both …… Manga lovers.”
“I’m sorry, I don’t know what you’re talking about. ……”
Akari touches her forehead as if she has a headache.
“Do you have a headache? Do you want some Bufferin?”
“No, I’m fine. ……”
Haa, Akari sighs.
Midoriko-chan glanced at me and Akari again and again.
For some reason, I thought she was trying to say something.
“What? You want something?”
I put my finger on my sister’s lips.
“Midoriko-chan, you seem to want to say something.”
She rolls her eyes and then stands up quickly.
She bowed to us with a bow.
“I’m sorry ……about yesterday and this morning. I was a bit…… immature. Sorry.”
Akari’s eyes widened for a moment.
I think there was some doubt in her eyes.
I know, because I’m her twin and she’s my sister.
It seems that Akari can’t gauge the true intentions of …… Midoriko-chan.
That is why I did this.
“I don’t mind, you know, Akari.”
I understand. I know that Akari can be quite stubborn, and that she has a lot on her mind.
The main reason why she is so angry is because Midoriko-chan hit me with a candy stick.
Akari is …… kind.
Whenever I’ve been hurt by that person, she’s always been there to protect me.
I’m an idiot, I have no power, and I’m weak. ……
Akari is always there to protect me.
She is a kind girl. That’s why she couldn’t forgive Midoriko-chan’s attitude. I think that’s probably what she’s most upset about.
But …… it’s fine.
I don’t care about it.
“Sister ……but this girl …….”
“Everyone gets frustrated at times, right?”
“That’s …… well. Yes.”
“And Akari’s …… attitude this morning wasn’t too good either.”
“But that’s ……”
“I know it was for my sake. But ……. Let’s be friends, both of you.”
I look at Akari and then at Midoriko-chan.
“Because ……you know? We’re going to live in the same house. We should get along. The brighter the house, the happier Sensei will be. Right?”
Midoriko-chan, Akari, and myself.
All love Sensei the most.
That’s why….. I don’t want to bother Sensei.
I think we can get along because we have that in common.
“Come on, Akari?”
“…… I’m sorry, too. I was being immature.”
Akari bows her head.
“I’m sorry, too.”
I bowed my head.
“Wait, why is sister apologizing?”
“…… T-that’s right. You did nothing wrong ……”
The two of them looked at each other.
Awkwardly, I looked away and …… brushed my hair.
I couldn’t understand what was frustrating Midoriko-chan either. So I’m sorry.”
So I’m sorry.
Midoriko-chan and Akari are no longer as cryptic as they were this morning.
Good, good, it’s best if everyone gets along!
“……Ah, I’m sorry.”
“Hmm ……, Well, it’s okay.”
The two of them made up!
“I’m so glad! Where’s Okarin?”
“…… He’s not here for a while.”
” Ah, is that so…..”
Akari seemed to have guessed something.
But I don’t know what it is.
Chobi, do you know?
Chobi, who was at my feet, looks up at me.
I don’t know, Nanako (Self conversation).
“…… I’m done with my business, I will send a line to Onii-chan.”
And that’s when it happened.
There was a LINE notification on my phone.
“I got a message.”
“…… Me too. It’s from Onii-chan.”
I start up the LINE application.
[“I’m staying at my friend’s house today.”]
“Ah, I see~ ……, what’s wrong with you two?”
Akari and Midoriko-chan suddenly have scary looks on their faces.
What should I do, Chobi~ It’s scary~
I’ll take care of it. Hold me in your arms, Nanako-chan (Self conversation).
I picked Chobi up in my arms and squeezed him tightly.
” Fuun…staying over. Ehehe….”
“…… Onii-chan. I’ll interrogate you when you get back.”
“Ah, I’ll help you with that.”
T-There is something disturbing about that word……!
Please come back soon!
