A few days after I was confessed by four girls, …….
Today was the last day of our trip.
We left the lodge and went to the shopping mall next door while waiting for the bullet train to take us home.
“Hey! One last shopping trip! Let’s buy something!”
The JK sisters were so energetic that they ran to the shopping mall the moment they arrived.
“What would you like to do, young lady?”
Ichika asked Rushia.
“I’m a little tired. I’m going to have a cup of tea in the hotel lounge until the bullet train arrives.”
“Then I’ll join you.”
“I’m fine. You enjoy your vacation.”
Rushia said and headed for a hotel near a shopping mall.
“I’m here for you, sister. Why don’t you invite Okarin-san?”
“Uh, yeah. ……”
A large man in a suit said to Ichika.
I later found out that Ichika and that big man are siblings.
He bowed his head and followed after Rushia.
Only Ichika and I remained behind.
“O-Okaya ……-kun. Let’s go …….”
” Ah, yes, …….”
We walked in silence through the shopping mall.
We were both silent.
“Is there anything you want to buy?”
“Eh? U-uhm. …… no. No, not really.”
“I see. ……”
I look at Ichika, who is walking next to me.
She was wearing a purple short-sleeved polo shirt and a white flared skirt.
It was a girly outfit, even for her who preferred pants.
“D-do I look weird……?”
“No, it looks good on you.”
Ichika’s face beamed with happiness.
I love the way her expression changes. ……
I reach out my hand to her.
“Eh, is it …… okay?”
” I don’t mind….. it’s okay?”
“Y-Yeah I guess.”
She smiles broadly and takes my hand in hers.
…… That day.
What Akari proposed to me was an unprecedented attempt to “go out with four people on a trial basis.”
Of course I was confused and troubled.
But in the end, I decided to go…….
I accepted the girls’ proposal.
“Hey, Oka ……, Mitsuhiko-kun.”
Ichika is walking next to me.
Her cheeks were flushed and her mouth was loose with a squishy smile.
“What’s wrong, Ichika?”
“Ehehe♡♡ I just called your first name~♡”
“…… Are you in middle school?”
Having become lovers with all of them, Ichika had changed the way she called me.
From Okaya-kun to Mitsuhiko.
“I’m so happy I could die. Because …… I’m on a date with the person I love, and we’ve become lovers, hand in hand and dating like this.”
Ichika smiles with real joy.
Unlike Akari, her heart and expression are directly connected.
That’s what makes it comfortable.
“But …… Oka, Mitsuhiko-kun, are you happy? [Trial romance] ……to accept it.”
As you can see, it’s a pseudo-lover relationship between four people.
“Yeah. I thought this would be the best way to get to know each of you individually.”
I’m not the dextrous type, you know.
When we entered into a trial relationship, we made an agreement.
- Okaya would not have any other women while he is in a relationship with the four of us.
- When someone is in a one-on-one relationship with Okaya, the other three will not interfere.
- The order in which you can date Okaya should be discussed, and there should be no bias.
- Let’s get along with everyone no matter what happens ♡
“The last sentence is too disturbing……”
“It was written by Akari-chan. …… “
A group line was created for us, and the above article was written in a notebook there.
It was Akari who did it, of course.
“B-But now I can …… go on a date with Mitsuhiko-kun without any worries. And ……, e-e…”
“E-Ecchi …… Ugh! It’s nothing!”
Fururu! Ichika blushed and shook her head.
“Anyway, I think this trial relationship is great. I can invite Mitsuhiko on a date without any hesitation.”
“It’s easier for me too, because I can just watch Ichika.”
We suddenly passed by a jewelry store.
“Hey, ……, Mitsuhiko-kun.”
“Would you like to buy a ring ……?”
Ichika’s face turned red and she spoke quickly.
“Oh, no! I don’t mean that in a weird way! It’s just that I wanted to wear something that …… matched. Because …… that ring …… makes you want to throw it away, right?”
I had my wedding ring on my left finger.
” Why didn’t you throw it away?”
“It’s not because I have a craving for Misae. It’s just that I’ve taken it for granted that the ring is here.”
I can’t take it off.
“A-after all…..then isn’t…… good? I’ll get you a replacement ring….., okay?”
“Yeah, I guess so.”
I walked into the jewelry store.
Behind me, I see Ichika gut-punching, “Alright!” It was kind of cute to see Ichika posing with gusto behind me.
It seems that there is such a thing as a pair ring in this world, and there are many rings that couples wear.
” Customer. Are you looking for something?
The clerk asked me.
In the past, I would have been at a loss for an answer.
But …… is different now.
I answer immediately.
“I’m looking for a pair of rings to wear with my girlfriend.”
After we finished shopping, we headed back to the city.
On the way back, Rushia’s grandfather had gotten us seats in the “Grand Class”.
“Fuaa……It’s too high-class. …… What the heck!”
Akari rolled her eyes and nodded.
The room was relaxed.
The seats were quite wide and the interior looked like the inside of a luxury hotel.
I didn’t want to, but I couldn’t say no because they had already taken the seats.
As I sat down on the overly soft seat, I slowly closed my eyes.
“It’s been seven days of …… adventure.”
Akari sits next to me.
“That ring looks good on you.”
“Ahead of the curve……”
She immediately noticed the pair of rings that Ichika and I were wearing.
“Did you buy it on a 50/50 basis?”
“I see. It’s nice to be an adult, you know. I envy you.”
Patata, Akari says with a smile, flapping her legs.
” …… You look like you can afford it.”
“I can afford it ♡ Ichika-chan is like a junior high school girl inside ♡”
Ichika, you are being attacked by a …… JK as well. ……
“I’m looking forward to it when I get home.”
She said, looking really happy and excited.
“What do you mean?”
“Well, we’re lovers, you know, me and Okarin.”
She puts her mouth close to my ear.
“…… Let’s do it a lot.”
She pulls her face away and giggles.
“Is it fine right? We’re already lovers, you know? You don’t have to worry about it.”
“…… Well, yeah, that’s true. Is that okay with you?”
“hmm. Of course ♡, that’s why we became lovers.”
Fufufu, Akari covers her mouth with her hand, as if she can’t contain her excitement.
“I’m looking forward to it ♡ Oh, and don’t worry, I’ll use birth control.”
“Of course you will, …….”
I poke Akari on the forehead.
Hehehe, she laughs.
“I have no experience in this area, but I’ve learned a lot about how to make people happy.”
“I see. You’re really not a child, are you?
That’s when it happened.
Puupuu, my phone shakes.
“Midoriko Okaya? Who is that?”
“My little sister.”
“Hmm. Little sister. You have a sister, Okarin?”
“Yeah. I’m older than her, though. And there’s a bit of a [reason].”
“I’ll tell you next time.”
I couldn’t answer the phone in the car, so I hung up.
Then a line immediately flew out.
[“No, don’t hang up. Seriously, I don’t get it.”]
I’ll send a text to say I’m on a train.
[Ah, I see. I’ll come over next time.”]
[What? What do you mean?”]
But Midoriko didn’t reply.
She did read it though…….
“How old is your sister, Okarin?”
“I’d say she’s about the same age as you guys.”
“Fuunn …… So she’s a JK. So, what did she say?”
“She’s coming to my house another time. ……”
…… This is bad, I can tell it.
I haven’t explained to Midorika about Akari and Nanako
“What are you going to do, …… Okarin?”
“…… Well, if you can fake it that day, you’ll be fine.”
“T-That’s right! She is not going to stay at Okarin’s house for a while, are you!”
“Yeah. …… Well, let’s just ask Rushia to stay over that day.”
Soon after, the train arrived at Tokyo Station.
As we were leaving the ticket gate, Saburo Niekawa was waiting for us in front of the JR ticket gate.
“I’m taking you home!” “Hello hello”
Next to him was ……, who was at the reception of the hotel.
I think it was Narai, who was at the hotel reception.
“Saburo. And Narai ……-san? What are you doing?”
“I came to pick you up.”
“Why is Narai-san here?”
“We live together.”
Ichika made a shocked expression.
“Living together?! Y-you guys …… already?!”
“Eh, what’s the surprise? We’ve been together for quite a while now. Right?”
“Well, it’s only been six months, so it’s normal.”
“No way ……we have been living together for six months.”
At Narai-san’s words, Ichika’s shoulders slumped …….
“When are you guys going to move in together?
“Eh, ……? No, it’s …… that …….”
Ichibana tweaks her fingers in front of her chest.
“I’m…… not ready for …… that.”
“Ichika. Don’t hold back.”
Rushia patted Ichika on the back.
“If we wait too long, Akari will take it all away from us. She’s going to take advantage of the fact that she’s now in a relationship with Okaya and start pampering him at home.
“I-I see! I know what to do…..Young lady….”
“Everything is fine. I don’t feel like I’m going to lose.”
When Rushia smiled wryly, Akari also smiled.
“Well, good luck with that. I’m in my love nest, and I’m not going to be disturbed by anyone, and I’m going to have a lot of fun with Okarin until I’m full.
Guu, Rushia gnashed her teeth.
“…… Full, what do you mean, Akari?”
Hoo, Nanako nodded her head.
“Hoo, it’s none of your business, sister. All right, let’s go home! Saburo, please send us home!”
And so we were driven back to our house by Saburo.
“…… We’re home!”
Me, Akari, and Nanako got off in front of a house.
Jirota said he’ll bring Chobi tomorrow.
Jirota is the brother of Saburo, to whom Nanako entrusts her dog.
“Thank you ……!”
Nanako breathed a sigh of relief.
She was worried about her dog.
“So long, Okaya. We’ll meet again [soon], though.”
“See you later, Mitsuhiko-kun.”
The two of them then got into the limousine and drove away.
“What do they mean, “…… soon,” Sensei?”
“Who knows. I don’t know.
Hey hey, Okarin♡, hurry back!
Akari takes out a key from her skirt pocket.
“What is it?”
“What’s wrong, Akari?”
The color of Akari’s face suddenly changes.
“O-Okarin ……, I’m sorry. I think I forgot to lock the door. ……”
It seems that the door was unlocked beforehand.
“…… Oh, no. I wonder if it’s safe.”
“I’m sorry. ……”
“No, it’s okay. You guys can wait outside. I’m going to see what’s going on inside.”
Seeing that they nodded, I went inside first.
The entrance ……. There’s nothing unusual about …….
“Hmm? These leather shoes …….”
There’s a pair of women’s leather shoes in the doorway.
It’s quite small in size.
It’s not Akari’s or Nanako’s.
“Could it be ……!”
I had an idea, so I headed to the living room.
“…… Oh, Onii-chan. You’re back~. Aren’t you late?”
My little sister ……, Midoriko Okaya, was lying on the sofa.
Long, bushy hair with a slight reddish tint.
She wears it in a ponytail.
A miniskirt and a short-sleeved shirt.
A cardigan wrapped around her waist.
She is lying face down on the sofa, flapping her legs.
She had added Chupa Chups (lolly) to her mouth.
“…… You are late coming home. You made me wait too long.”
“No you….How did you have a key?”
“I borrowed it from the landlord. I mean, what’s wrong with a sister being in her brother’s house?”
“Ah, no. …… Well, yes, but ……”
Midoriko got up and coughed.
“…… Onii-chan. It’s been a while. I mean, since New Year’s Day before last?”
“Oh, yeah. …… That’s right. ……”
I was too busy to come home last New Year’s, so I didn’t go…….
Isn’t this a very bad situation ……?
Midoriko’s cheeks reddened a little, and she bobbed the handle of her Chupa Chups as she said.
“…… Onii-chan.You broke up with that woman because she cheated on you, right? That’s the right thing to do. It’s just like you said it would be. What’s wrong with you, Onii-chan, you always have been …….”
“No, ……, when are you going to be home?”
“……. Well, I’m staying for a while. Take care of me.”
That’s when it happened.
Akari and Nanalp came in at that moment.
“I-I’ll call the police!”
“…… Sensei! Are you okay?”
Akari clung to my arm, and Nanako clung to my waist.
“……………………… ………………………… Ha?”
Emotion disappears from Midoriko’s face with a swoon …….
“…… Onii-chan, who are they?”
“Oh, no, …… this …… Midoriko. It’s not. ……”
Midoriko, my younger sister, grumbles and clicks her tongue.
“…… Hey, wait? I don’t want you sticking around Onii-chan”
The JK sisters roll their eyes.
“…… That’s right. Outsiders should leave. I mean, don’t come up here without asking the landlord.”
Midoriko, annoyed, waved her hand as if she were chasing away a dog.
“No, …… Midoriko. These two were students when I was in college, remember? They are my former students now”
“……Ha? Why is your student barging into Onii-chan’s house without permission? That’s just trespassing. Go home.”
I don’t know why, but Midoriko became terribly unhappy.
“There is no place to go back to.”
I looked at Akari, who was shaking, and made up my mind.
“Midoriko. Listen to me carefully. These kids are from …….”
“Ah mou! You’re annoying! Get out of here!”
Midoriko stood up and forcefully grabbed Nanako’s hand.
“Will you stop interrupting my time with Onii-chan?”
Hiku, My sister stiffens up.
“Get your hands off her.”
“～～～～～～～! Onii-chan you idiot! Even though I’m here, idiot!”
My sister grumbles, kicks my legs, and leaves.
The door of the bathroom closes with a bang.
“Okarin ……, is this okay?”
“…… Might be a bad idea.”
I have a trial relationship with four people.
If my sister finds out about it, she’ll be upset…….
Besides, she said she was going to stay for a while.
No matter how I looked at it, I could only imagine the turmoil that would follow.
