I Was Hired As A Tutor By A Cute Little Devilish Junior - Chapter 27 Stroll
After an hour or so in the car, we arrived at the town where the inn was located.
“Wow, it’s a very nice town, isn’t it? Senpai!”
Shiina, who had just gotten out of the car, said to me with a twinkle in her eye.
I just replied, “Yeah,” and took another look at the town.
The area where the place was located seemed to be a hot spring town, and there are many stores that were themed around it.
There were stores selling food and souvenirs unique to hot spring towns, and we even found a few footbaths here and there.
When we all got out of the car, Mom looked out of the driver’s window.
“Riku, I’m going to go, so call me when you all are done.”
“Listen? Just because you’re staying in the same room with three girls doesn’t mean you can ‘pounce’ on them.”
“I won’t. Besides, one of them is my own sister.”
“Who knows. All men are animals.”
“You have too little faith in your own son. Just get out of here.”
“Oh, Riku is so cold.”
My mom cried in a weak voice that was out of proportion to her age. You really should just go home.
“Well then, Satsuki-chan, Shiina-chan. Take care of Riku and Kanade, okay?”
“Yes, thank you very much for today.”
“See you tomorrow, Aunty.”
Shiina bowed, and Satsuki waved with a smile.
Looking at the two of them, Mom waved happily back and started the car.
Are Kanade and I going to be treated well by the two of them?
It was obvious that it was those two who were going to cause problems.
“We still have some time before we check in at the inn, so why don’t we take a little stroll around town?”
After seeing Mom drive off, Satsuki suggested that.
Naturally, none of the three of us had any objections, so the four of us decided to take a walk around town.
“Senpai, look, a hot spring bun! Would you like to eat it with me?”
“Yeah, sure. Let’s go.”
At the first store we found, we bought the hot spring bun that Shiina wanted.
Shiina bought a normal one, and I bought a green tea flavored one that I was curious about.
We sat down on a Japanese-style bench outside the store and enjoyed them together.
“Mmm, it’s delicious.”
“Yes, it’s delicious.”
We both said the same thing.
The sweetness of the sticky dough and the moderate sweetness of the bean jam, and the aftertaste that melted in our mouths without making us thirsty. Yes, it was delicious.
“Senpai’s green tea flavored, right? Can I have a bite?”
“Yeah, I don’t mind. Here.”
Shiina took a bite of my bun with a small mouth.
“Hmm, green tea is not bad either! You can have a bite of mine too.”
“Yeahh, thank you.”
Shiina tasted my bun with hints of happiness.
I took a bite of the bun that Shiina offered me as well.
Yes, the normal one is not bad. It was simple, pleasant to the touch, and very tasty… Wait a minute.
We casually took a bite of each other’s food, but we actually just fed each other.
When I became aware of it, I felt a little embarrassed that I had done it outright.
I couldn’t help but check on Shiina, but she was still happily munching on the bun.
It was probably just my imagination that her mouth seemed to be looser than before.
I felt even more embarrassed because I was the only one who seemed to be aware of it.
I quickly ate the bun to distract myself from it and went back to the store to buy a souvenir for my mom.
＊ ＊ ＊
“Riku, look at this! Wooden sword, a wooden sword!”
“I get it, stop waving it around. It’s dangerous.”
After buying some buns for souvenirs, I found Satsuki at a nearby souvenir shop.
She looked around and found a wooden sword that struck her attention.
She was happily waving it around.
“How do you like it, Riku? Does it look good on me?”
“I don’t think it’s something that would suit a high school girl, but it looks surprisingly good on you.”
“Hey? What do you mean?”
Frowning, Satsuki held up a wooden sword towards me. Hey, you’re giving off quite the vibe, so stop it.
After a few more swings,
“I think this one is better.”
As she said this, she put the wooden sword she was wielding back in its place.
I was relieved to see that she had finally calmed down.
“It’s easier to use a short wooden sword.”
“Let’s get away from the wooden sword.”
“What’s wrong with them? Besides, it’s more practical.”
“That’s right. For example, when Riku attacks me in my sleep, I can use this to get rid of you, right?”
A chill ran down my back. In addition, the lower half of my body also shivered.
Satsuki, what a horrible girl you are. I’m going to have to take precautions tonight…Wait a minute.
“Why are you assuming I’m going to attack you in the night?”
“Eh, you won’t?”
“You don’t want to?”
“I don’t want to.”
“I guess, after all, Riku. I guess you really are…”
“Then I would need it.”
“No, you don’t.”
Satsuki was still swinging her wooden sword as she said, “I guess so.”
I felt the same way when I talked to my mom, am I that untrustworthy? I don’t even have a criminal record.
“Yeah, but it still feels better this way.”
Saying that, Satsuki ended up taking the longer wooden sword to the cash register. What exactly did she feel more comfortable with?
The lady at the register laughed at her as she safely bought the wooden sword.
As I watched her with a wry smile on my face, I felt a tug on my clothes.
When I turned around, I saw Kanade, looking somewhat fidgety.
“What’s wrong? Kanade.”
“Nii-san, I saw a footbath over there, would you like to go with me?”
Footbath. It was probably the footbath that we saw from where we got out of the car earlier.
Since Kanade was usually a shy person, it was nice to see her invite me like this.
“Of course. Do you want to go in together?”
She was still a spoiled girl and asked me to hold her hand as we walked to the footbath.
I was a little embarrassed to be walking hand in hand with my younger sister, who was now in middle school.
But the fact was that when Kanade asked me to do something, I couldn’t refuse.
After all, I might be what was called a siscon.
“Nii-san, Nii-san, footbath, footbath!”
Kanade called out the word “footbath” with excitement, and I replied while holding back a little laughter.
It was the first time for both Kanade and I to have a real footbath like this. It was no wonder she was in a good mood.
We took off our shoes and socks, and I was soon in the hot water.
“Ohh, this feels so good…”
“Oh, Nii-san, that’s not fair.”
Kanade, who was taking her time with her tights and such, called out to me from behind.
“I’m going to punish Nii-san for going in first without permission. Please spread your legs a little.”
“Hmm, like this?”
I did as I was told, and spread my legs.
Then, suddenly, Kanade’s waist was right in front of me.
“Here we go.”
“Hey, where are you sitting?”
Kanade sat down so that she was completely inside both of my legs.
“I’m punishing Nii-san. I don’t accept your objection.”
“But even so, if others see us…”
If other people saw this, they’d look at me like I’m a pervert or much worse…
…I thought, but the elders around me just looked at me warmly and didn’t seem particularly bothered.
W-What peaceful and warm people they are…Is this the quality of a hot spring town?
In the meantime, as I savored the kindness of the people, Kanade also put her small feet into the footbath.
“Fueh, it’s so warm!”
“Haha, you’re melting.”
Kanade’s face melted in no time, and she became limp.
What is it with this cute creature? Maybe I’m a siscon after all.
I hugged my cute little sister gently and enjoyed the footbath again.
The time passed slowly, but I realized that we had been soaking for quite some time.
Before I knew it, Kanade was sleeping peacefully in my arms.
I felt like letting her sleep a little longer, but it was time to check-in. I felt sorry for her, but I had to wake her up.
After I woke Kanade up, I got out of the footbath and tried to walk, but my legs were a little weak from being soaked for so long.
After that, I found Shiina and Satsuki shopping together at a different store and joined them.
Then after a quick shopping trip, the four of us moved on and checked into the hot spring inn we had come to visit.
