Preparing for the visit to the house of the girl of my dreams
“Whoooooooooo! What should I do? What should I do?!”
In the living room of my house, I was holding my head in my hands.
The cause was, of course, Shijouin-san’s invitation to her house, which she had proposed the other day.
It seems that her parents have given their permission, and I’ve been invited to the Shijouin household, but…
“I was invited to Shijouin-san’s house…? I had never imagined such a situation…!”
What should I do? …Although I am very nervous, going to Shijouin-san’s house itself is not a problem.
However, the equipment for that is…
“Hmmm? Aniki, what are you doing holding your head like that?”
It was my sister, Kanako, who suddenly called out to me.
For some reason, she often seems to be in the living room lately.
“Ah! …Maybe you lost the game to that prince you were talking about the other day,” she said while laughing.
“No, you’re wrong! I ranked first in the test and completely won. Moreover, he tried to break the rules and approached Shijouin-san but was told not to talk to her again, killing him mentally.”
“Oh, oh!? It was actually a complete victory! But what the hell was all this fuss about…?”
When I told her about the situation, Kanako seemed to be surprised by the event of me being invited to Shijouin-san’s house.
“Hey! To her house…? That’s more than just having a pulse! She’s already turned on by you Aniki!”
“Idiot! stop saying that! As I said before, Shijouin-san is a pure and innocent young lady. She’s not talking about that kind of sexy stuff, she just genuinely wants to thank me for teaching her.”
Shijouin-san was always concerned about whether the study sessions she asked for were a burden to me.
“Well, you were invited in a situation where her eyes moistened as she said, ‘Next Saturday… my parents are not present at my house.’”
“Don’t use Shijouin-san as material for erotic situations without my permission! She invited me with an innocent smile on her face, saying, ‘I want to invite you to my house!’”
If she gently whispered such a line in my ear, I would probably have imagined… crap I can’t get distracted now!
“Well, then what was Aniki worried about? You won the game and got invited to the house of the girl you like, so you should be happy instead.”
“… I don’t have clothes…”
“I don’t have any clothes to wear for my visit to Shijouin-san’s house! I don’t even know what kind of clothes would be good to buy now!”
In this life, I’ve been able to use the mental strength and knowledge I gained in my previous life to get things done, but when it comes to fashion, I’m totally hopeless.
I was so busy working as a company slave and never had a girlfriend in my life that I only paid attention to social grooming such as suits, shirts, ties, etc. I never coordinated clothes for private meetings with girls.
“Anyway, house invitations are heavier than dates… I can’t go in my usual mass-retail outfits! I’m going to the department store or men’s boutique right now!”
I was about to leave when Kanako threw a merciless punch at my gut.
“What the hell are you doing? This is domestic violence!”
“That’s why you need to calm down, Aniki. Even if you were accustomed to buying clothes, if you suddenly went into a department store, you would end up buying something awkward and end up wasting your money.”
Ugu…! She is predicting the future so accurately!
“In the first place, you don’t have to panic like that.”
“Aniki is a high schooler so it’s normal for you to wear cheap clothes. If you wear expensive clothes with good fabric, it is rather unsuitable for your age.”
“Oh, is that the case…?”
“Some junior high school girls have branded clothes and bags, but they just wear them as it is, without any effort. Instead of looking fashionable, they look very awkward and childish.”
A junior high school student with a branded bag…? What? That’s scary.
Are these kids’ parents all doctors or lawyers?
“So, even if you wear cheap clothes, you just have to pay attention to cleanliness. Cut your hair, take a bath, brush your teeth, and trim your nose hair. And of course, use clothes that just returned from the launderer. But you also have to pay attention to the color of your clothes.”
“Yes, color? What’s so important about color?”
“It’s not that big of a factor, but if this is the first time we’re going to spend time together in private, I’d avoid wearing black and go for bright colors. From the clothes my Aniki has, I’d say… t-shirt with a striped pattern or blue shirt and to be safe, a white shirt? The bottom can be a little darker, but if the top is white, brown jeans would be better, right?”
What’s with these junior high school girls? …They’re so reliable.
“You’re as strong as ever in that field… But how did you know what clothes I had?”
“Well, you see. Aniki is a person who couldn’t coordinate his clothes before and after awakening to the power of love, so I thought as I watched you, ‘If only you could make that part better you won’t be lame…’”
“You’re dissing me like that again…”
Huh? But then…
Kanako, are you watching me enough to know what kind of clothes I have, both when I was a mumbling, dark and gloomy guy, and even now?
“Well, I never heard of anyone being invited to their house before going out, and I don’t know what you’re supposed to do when you get there, so you’re by yourself! Anyway, it must be a big event, so go and capture the princess’s heart!”
“Oh, yes! I’ll do my best!”
Big event … Yeah, it’s going to be a big event.
This is the first time that I’ve had contact with Shijouin-san outside apart from school-related activities.
“Ah, but no matter how much fun you are having, you can’t do naughty things in someone else’s house, okay?”
“No, I won’t, you idiot! What do you even think of me?”
“What? You’re a virgin with a brain filled with a certain girl, right?”
“Yes, that’s right! But don’t say it like that!”
Well, time passed by quickly as I joked around with my sister, and the day soon came when I was invited to Shijouin-san’s house.
