- His Childhood Friend is a Beautiful, Reclusive Girl, So He Spends His After-School Hours in Her Room (But He’s Not Her Boyfriend!)
- Ch. 77: Dear (The Woman I Love), Dear Mother-san
Well, homeroom was over and it was after school again today.
I was about to get up from my seat to go to Yuika’s when I received a message on my phone just in time.
That was unusual.
It was from the Kisaragi family’s mother.
“‘I’m sorry, Kanade-chan, but can you come early today?’”
It was unusual for her mother to ask me to come early.
I was just about to head there, so I sent her a quick “OK” sticker.
It may be too frank a reply to someone’s mother, but we’ve known each other since I was born, so I don’t have any reservations about that.
But I wondered if something had happened. The message doesn’t seem urgent, but I should hurry up and use my bike. At this time of the day, there must be someone from the dorm group behind the school building. I’m sure they’ll lend me their car if I ask.
As I was leaving the classroom, I received another message.
It was from her mother. I looked at the screen, wondering what was going on, and I was caught off guard.
“Stamps are just too lazy! You’re going to lose Nadeshiko-san.”
“What the heck is she talking about…?”
I felt a headache coming on and pressed my temples in the middle of the hallway.
Nadeshiko was her mother’s name.
She was unusually young-looking, uncommonly beautiful, and was the mother of the well-known Iori and Yuika.
If I had to describe her existence, I would say that she was like a married woman with the appeal of Yuika. In other words, she has a terrifying ultimate body.
Naturally, her chest was even bigger than Yuika’s. I’m not sure how what cup she has, but when she wears light clothes, I really have trouble looking at her. On top of that, the lines of her body are kind of erotic. The gestures are very seductive, or at any rate, very suggestive.
In addition, she referred to herself as “mother” in front of her children, but for some reason, when she talks to me, it was often “I” or “Nadeshiko-san”. The reason was unknown. I could think of a few reasons, but to be honest, I don’t want to remember them because they are part of my black history.
“…I guess I’ll just ignore this message for now. Just get to Kisaragi’s house.”
As soon as I decided to hurry up, I received another message as I had been expecting it.
“If you make Nadeshiko-san feel lonely, Kanade’s cute secret might somehow become known throughout the neighborhood! Specifically, when you were seven years old and I was giving Kanade-chan and the sister a bath, I noticed that Kanade-chan has a small sore throat.”
I turned on the call mode at the speed of sound.
I didn’t read the message all the way through. If I did, my mind would collapse.
Forgetting that I was in a school hallway, I screamed into my phone.
“Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry! I feel like I’m being unreasonable, to the point where my Sunday morning hero time is being replaced by the U.S. Open, but it’s my fault anyway! So please don’t let that youthful indiscretion get out into the open…!”
“‘Oh my goodness… Did you call me instead of replying? Nadeshiko-san am so happy♪’”
“I’m honored that you’re happy! I’ll never go against mother. I’ll never stand up against you. So please, please have mercy on me…”
“‘Hmm, what should I do?’”
“I-Is there still something you don’t like about…?”
“‘The way you talk.’”
“‘And how you call me.’”
She mentioned that…
Realizing her intentions, I grit my teeth.
“‘Kanade-chan, you’ve been trying to distance yourself from me ever since you graduated from junior high school, haven’t you? You talk to me in an honorific way, you call me ‘mother’ and so on.’”
“I-I can’t help it. I’m not going to be a child forever, so I can’t keep acting like an adult to my mother…”
“‘Oh my! Are you going to join the adults now? I think that’s a little difficult.’”
A mysterious laugh.
Then she told me in a tease.
She had a seductive voice that made me melt from the core of my being, something that Yuika never had.
“‘Kanade-chan, you’ve never had s*x before, right?’”
The headache accelerated even more.
So much so that it went through the atmosphere.
I screamed so hard that I thought all the windows in the hallway would break.
“How do you know about that—!?”
All the students in the hallway looked back at me in disbelief.
But I didn’t have time to worry about it.
“I demand a retraction and an apology! I’m not a kid anymore, okay? I could be doing it without Nadeshiko-san’s knowledge, right!? All sorts of different things with squeaks and jiggles!?”
“‘No, no, no. I know, right? Kanade has absolutely no experience with those, it’s hopeless.’”
“How the heck do you know that? And don’t call me hopeless! It’s like there’s no hope for me in the future. I’ll cry! I’m going to cry!”
“Yes, yes, that’s the feeling♪ You’re becoming more like the usual Kanade-chan. Don’t worry, I’m not saying there’s no hope, okay? Do you want advice from Nadeshiko-san?”
“I don’t want it! I’ve even pushed a woman I like over the edge before!”
“Oh, my, is that right? Once a week or so?”
“That’s right! That’s about it! —!? Eh, what, wait! How do you know that!?”
“‘You said you pushed her down once a week or so, but never got anywhere further. Fu, still a kid after all.’”
“So how do you know how often? It’s not right to judge whether I’m a child or not based on that!?”
“‘Did you at least kiss her?’”
“‘A kiss, kiss. You’ve never kissed her? Ah, sorry, sorry, Kanade-chan was still a child.”
“Don’t be ridiculous! I have! I’ve done it before, like crazy!”
“‘How many times?’”
“‘Except for the kisses on the cheek?’”
“‘Hmmm, looks like we’re making progress. Good, good, good. Nadeshiko-san has heard what she wanted to hear, and am satisfied.’”
I came back to myself and was astonished.
“So long, Kanade-chan. Please continue to take care of her.”
The call was cut off with a satisfied voice.
I held my head in my hands.
“S-She got me again—!”
This survey by Natsuko-san was conducted on a regular basis.
My relationship…Or rather, she tried to ask me every now and then about my progress with Yuika.
Of course I don’t want to report such things.
In order to avoid being pursued, I have tried over the years to use honorifics and call her mother, but in the end, I am always forced to confess like this.
And this time, too, I was taken advantage of.
And it was quite a big one.
My hand trembled as I held the phone, and I collapsed to the floor.
“What am I saying to the mother of the woman I love about how many times I pushed her down or how many times I kissed her? What the hell am I being made to say?”
I twisted my body to the limit in agony.
The students around me were already not even looking at me.
A couple came out of the classroom and walked past, talking lightly.
“Mikami-kun is making some fuss, what’s wrong?”
“Well? Isn’t he always getting involved in some kind of commotion again? Or maybe he’s being teased by some unusual people, or maybe he’s just moping about his beautiful childhood friend.”
“Oh, the usual.”
“Yeah, it’s the usual.”
No, my classmates, please don’t take it for granted that I’m always making a commotion…
And when did I ever tell you that I was talking about Yuika? I don’t remember doing that at school, that was for sure. Maybe.
I nodded my head and thought to myself.
It was true, Natsuko-san has a very weird temperament.
In the meantime, she seems to be supporting me and Yuika. …That person was the type who friendly fire her allies with wide-area magic. And with a big smile. You can never be too careful.
And what was that first message, “Come early today”?
Since it was Nadeshiko-san, it was quite possible that it was just a hook for the regular investigation…
As I was thinking about this, another message came into my phone.
I had a bad feeling about this, but I turned to look at it. Naturally, the sender was Nadeshiko-san.
“‘That’s right. Kanade-chan, please hurry up and get here. It seems that Yuika hasn’t eaten anything since this morning. The tray in front of the room was still there.”
“—!? You’re supposed to say something that important first!”
“‘She’s probably too sore to move. If you push her down now, you’ll probably become an adult.’”
“Shut up! And why do you know it was probably sore muscles!?”
While screaming out loud at the messages being thrown, I dashed down the hallway as fast as I could.
I hurried to the back of the school building to borrow a bike from the dorm group.
…This was how I’ve always been pushed around by Nadeshiko-san.
If the members of the Kisaragi family are the Four Heavenly Kings, then that person was like an enigmatic being that you can’t tell if she was a friend or foe.
But if this was it, and Natsuko-san was the last boss, I really don’t think I can win…
Sometimes she jokingly says, “Come be my son-in-law,” but if I’m not careful, they might actually make me become a son-in-law of the Kisaragi family.
I don’t want that. I want to take Yuika with me and make her a great independent woman. When she was a child, she said she wanted to live in a house with a view of the ocean, so I have to move to make that happen.
But…I could not see any way to win against Nadeshiko-san at the moment. I’m so worried about the future that I have a headache…
