Then we ate lunch that Shi-chan cooked for us, and after relaxing a bit, I had to leave her house because I had to get ready for my part-time job.
She saw me off as I put on my shoes at the door.
“Takkun, you’re really going away. ……”
“I can’t skip my part-time job, you know.
I replied with a sense of apology to the lonely Shi-chan.
To be honest, I still want to be with her, but even though it’s a part-time job, it’s still work, and I can’t just take a day off without permission.
“….That’s true, then Takkun.”
“Hmm? What’s wrong?”
Shi-chan seemed to have given up, and gestured for me to come closer to her.
When I followed her gesture and approached her, wondering what she was doing, she suddenly kissed me on the cheek.
“—-Have a safe trip kiss”
Shi-chan blushed in embarrassment after doing it.
I could feel my face getting red again.
So I left Shi-chan’s house, though I was sorry to leave.
I asked her if she wanted me to wash the sweatshirt and return it to her, but Shi-chan insisted, “I’ll take responsibility for washing it.” I had to ask it.
So I went home, took a shower, changed my clothes, and got ready for my part-time job.
But as I was relaxing alone in my room, there was a sudden knock on my door.
“Yes? Who is it?”
I replied to the sound and opened the door with a bang and a person came into the room.
“Yahoo! I’m here to play! What is it? Are you at that age, Taku-chan? Why don’t you give your sister a proper explanation?”
To my surprise, it was my cousin, Ayane.
Ayane is four years older than me and is currently a second year university student.
Ayane lives nearby, so she sometimes comes to my house like this and relaxes as if it were her own.
Ayane had long brown hair like a college student, and was dressed in trendy fashion that looked a bit expensive, giving her the appearance of a city girl.
However, there was one difference between Ayane and Kinoshita-san at her part-time job.
Ayane had won the Miss Contest at the university she attended, and she had long been famous in the area as a beautiful woman.
Indeed, Ayane’s face is so well-groomed that it’s hard to believe that she has the same DNA as me, and she has a half-Japanese face that you wouldn’t believe is pure Japanese.
That’s why Ayane, fully aware of the fact that I am beautiful, has always been amused and made fun of my shyness.
Are’nt you glad to have a beautiful cousin? Youcould marry my cousin, right? Is what she sayd. She was really a mean and devilish woman even though she was one of my relatives, playing with me in a suggestive manner.
However, in the past, I would have been taken in and embarrassed by her, but now, I’m sorry to say that she did no damage to me.
–Because now I have a girlfriend who’s so overwhelmingly beautiful that even Ayane can’t keep up with her.
That’s right, I was meeting her just now.
That’s why I answered honestly.
“Now that I have a girlfriend, please don’t get involved with me like that anymore.
“What? Seriously, a girlfriend? Taku-chan? Are you serious? Ha, seriously?”
How many times have you said you’re serious, Ayane? …… But fortunately, I am serious.
“I’m already a high school student, so I can have a girlfriend.”
“W-What kind of girl is she? Let me see it! In any case, I’m more …… I am, and Taku-chan, what is this room ……?”
Ayane had pressed me to show her who my girlfriend is, but as soon as she saw my room, she seemed to be blatantly taken aback.
What Ayane was looking at was the Angel Girls poster I had brought home from my part-time job.
“You say you have a girlfriend, but it’s an idol poster. It’s true that they may be as cute as me, but there’s no point in chasing after someone on cloud nine. …… Well, I’m on cloud nine, too.
When she said that, Ayane gave me a pitying look.
Then she put her hand on my shoulder and continued her words.
“You were really playing with your friends, right? It’s okay, you don’t have to be so tough. ……”
“No, I really—-“
Ayane spread her hands in front of my face as I tried to argue with her, and she shook her face from side to side, still with a pitying expression on her face.
“—-It’s okay, you’re still in high school, so it’s just the beginning. Until then, this beautiful sister will heal Taku-chan, so hang in there.
Then, Ayane grabbed my face and tried to hug me with her own chest.
But no matter how much of a cousin she is, I have a precious girlfriend named Shi-chan, and I didn’t want to bury my face in another woman’s chest, so I hurriedly jumped back to get away from her.
W-“What are you doing, Ayane-san!”
“Ha? What are you running away from? From me.”
However, as if she didn’t like my reaction, Ayane became blatantly unhappy.
“Okay, if you’re going that far, then bring your girlfriend! I’ll judge her!”
“What? You can’t show me? I’m gonna be in this house all day, so bring her in!”
“No, I’ve got a job later.”
“Well, why don’t you bring her over after?”
“No, no, I’m not bringing a girl here at 9pm. I have school tomorrow. ……”
“Yeah, excuses! She doesn’t really exist huh!”
I was trying to be serious, but Ayane looked like she just wanted to prove that my girlfriend was an air-girlfriend.
I really don’t understand why you would want to prove to me that I don’t have a girlfriend, but I was a bit pissed off and thought I’d just listen to her then.
So I ignored Ayane, who was pointing at me and sneering, and called Shi-chan.
“Hello, Shi-chan? Sorry to bother you.”
“Yeah, what’s wrong?”
“Well, I’m sorry to bother you when you’re really sick, but I was wondering if I could see you this evening.”
“I can meet you!”
“A-ah I see, then I have a part-time job until 9:00 p.m. I’ll pick you up then.”
“I’ll go to the convenience store!”
“Y-Yeah, but I’ll walk at night.”
“I’ll walk on a well-lit street, don’t worry! I’ve got my buzzer and spray gun.”
“I- I see. Well, be careful.
“Then, I’ll see you later.”
“Yes, roger that!!”
What was that all about? …… Anyway, I was able to make an appointment with Shi-chan.
Did you hear what I said? She’s coming, so don’t run away and wait for her, Ayane-san.”
“F-Fuun? Okay, I’ll see you after 9pm! I’m looking forward to it! I’m definitely better for you!”
For some reason, Ayane was adamant about it, but after saying that, she left the room.
I guess she’s planning to spend the rest of the night in our living room, as usual.
So I’m really sorry to involve Shi-chan in such a trivial matter, but I was happy to have a reason to meet her as soon as possible, and I couldn’t help but look forward to 9pm.
