“Then I’ll go to work.”
I told my family, who were relaxing in the living room, that I was on my way to work.
“Okay, have a good day.”
“Get something to eat on the way home.”
My mom, dad, and Ayane, who was lying on the living room sofa eating a rice cracker, each replied to me.
…… Yes, Ayane is a normal part of our family, but it’s a lose-lose situation to worry about her.
But this is not the first time this has happened.
As an only child, we have been living together for a long time, and Ayane has been like a real sister to our family, so our father and mother love her like a real daughter.
In fact, she is my cousin, and I don’t see anything wrong with that kind of relationship, and I’m glad that Ayane is here because I feel like I really have an older sister.
But even so, Ayane’s personality is too difficult to deal with.
Because of her blessed appearance and the fact that she has been doted on by the people around her, Ayane has never experienced any setbacks or defeats in her life, and at best, she is more free spirited than others, to the extent that she can be aptly compared to a female version of Jaian.
If she were to improve on this, she would probably evolve into the true Ayane for the first time.
But unfortunately, no one has ever been able to make such an unruly Ayane taste defeat in terms of her femininity.
–But Ayane, it’s only until today that you can remain unbeaten.
That’s what I muttered in my mind, and with a fearless smile on my face, I added a few words to my family.
“Oh, yeah. I’m going to bring my girlfriend over after my part-time job, so make sure the house is clean, okay?”
–Okay, I’ve said it.
If Shi-chan refused to come to my house, that would be the end of it.
Even so, I couldn’t help but declare war on her.
This was also for Ayane’s sake.
By making a clear declaration like this, I’m setting the stage for the only person who can give the arrogant Ayane the moxa to come to my house.
My father and mother both rolled their eyes in surprise at my unexpected words, and Ayane clucked her tongue once in boredom.
Although I felt a little sad and wondered why Ayane-san was so unhappy about me being happy, I went straight to my part-time job.
While I was working, I checked my watch.
Thinking that I had plans for the rest of the day, I felt that today’s part-time job was really long.
It was probably because I was thinking about what I was going to do next, but more than that, it was the joy and anticipation of seeing Shi-chan again that was making me feel that way.
Just after 8:50 p.m., a woman came into the convenience store.
There was Shi-chan, wearing a white top, black ankle-length pants, and a light beige leather rider’s jacket for the slightly chilly autumn nights.
I could tell at a glance that Ayane was also wearing good clothes, but honestly, the elegance of Shi-chan’s outfit was even better than that.
The sweatshirt Shi-chan wore in the daytime was also very cute, but Shi-chan’s mature clothes made me feel like she was a beautiful girl on her way to a date, and I couldn’t help but admire her.
She was casually wearing earrings in her ears, and the glossy red lips on her pouty lips made her look more mature.
“Takkun, I’m here!”
And Shi-chan, who smiled at me so sweetly, was an angel herself.
Just by looking at Shi-chan smiling so happily, I naturally couldn’t help but smile too.
That’s how attractive Shi-chan is, full of immeasurable charm.
Even though we had met just a few hours ago, I was getting sad that I couldn’t see her anymore, and I was so happy to see her again. I thought that my love brain was accelerating too fast, but I also gave up thinking that it was inevitable with Shi-chan like this.
“I am going to finish in a few minutes, so can you wait for a while?”
“Yes, I understand! I’m going to read a magazine!”
Shi-chan saluted happily and started reading a magazine in the magazine corner while waiting for me to finish.
Thinking that I used to observe Shi-chan reading a magazine like this before, I stared blankly at her reading a magazine since there were no other customers.
For some reason, Shi-chan seemed to be enjoying reading the ramen magazine, and I could tell that she was excited just by looking at it.
She was probably thinking about what she was going to do next, but from the side she looked like just another girl who loved ramen, and even that gap was cute.
After I finished my part-time job, I went to the convenience store to buy some pudding as a souvenir for Ayane, and left the convenience store with Shi-chan.
Shi-chan looked at me with a curious look on her face and asked me why I had bought pudding.
Of course, I bought one for Shi-chan.
“You know, if you don’t mind, why don’t you come over to my place afterwards?”
I was still a little nervous, but I told her the purpose of her visit today.
Naturally, the primary reason was to see Shi-chan, but my announcement to my family that I was going to bring Shi-chan home was also meant to push myself.
As long as I declared that I would bring her to my family, I wouldn’t be called crazy if I did bring her home… or rather, I could easily think of Ayane-san laughing while making a fool of me. I’m going, so I wanted Shi-chan to come with me if I could do it.
“Eh?! T-takkun’s house?!”
But Shi-chan was naturally surprised to hear such a thing out of the blue.
It’s normal to be surprised when someone suddenly asks you to come to their boyfriend’s house.
I was getting weaker and weaker, thinking that it was still too early to go …….
“I want to go! I want to see Takkun’s room!”
But Shi-chan replied with a twinkle in her eye and a really expectant look on her face.
“I see, yes, that’s fine, go ahead and look as much as you want.”
So I was honestly happy that she wanted to come despite the sudden invitation, and I replied while gently patting Shi-chan’s head.
Thus, I started walking towards home with Shi-chan.
Normally, I would be bored walking home alone, but today, just having Shi-chan next to me made me much happier.
