- Chapter 21 - From Now On, My Little Sister Friend and I
“That’s my finger, you’re eating it from the wrong place…”
We moved to the living room.
Dinner time was in full swing.
At Shiori-chan’s insistence, she sat on top of me.
We had four chairs, but only one of them was doing its job. It’s a very irrational situation.
However, this time it was my fault, and since I had promised to pamper her, I was determined to do my best.
So now, I was carefully bringing the food that Shiori-chan had made to her mouth.
“I couldn’t help but just notice how delicious Onii-san’s fingers looked.”
“I don’t think it’s a matter of ‘just because.'”
“If you want, Onii-san can eat my finger too, though I don’t care which part of me you eat.”
“It’s not something you can say with your cheeks dyed red… It’s already just a bizarre conversation right now…”
I said so with a wry smile and took the shumai between my chopsticks and brought it to Shiori-chan’s mouth.
“Here, open your mouth.”
Shiori-chan obediently opened her mouth and happily ate it.
By the way, the shumai was handmade by Shiori-chan. The fact that she made the shumai by hand shows just how good her cooking skills are.
Shiori-chan put her weight on my body and let out a satisfied exhale.
“I can feel the essence of Onii-san ♡.”
“Would you stop saying that? I’ve been washing my chopsticks with detergent.”
“When you are at my level, just the thought of Onii-san using chopsticks is enough to get me excited.”
“It’s the end of the line…”
I don’t know why Shiori-chan doesn’t have any shame whatsoever and starts revealing ridiculous things. I’m worried about her future.
“Onii-san, please eat too, because Onii-san came home late and I had a lot of time to cook.”
I did as Shiori-chan asked and grabbed the siumai again with my chopsticks.
As soon as I was about to throw it into my mouth, I realized that this was an indirect kiss.
I’m not sure why I’m upset about an indirect kiss… I’m painfully aware of my inexperience with love, and I hate it.
As I grabbed the siumai with my chopsticks and hesitated as to what to do, Shiori-chan’s expression relaxed.
“You’re worried about indirect kissing?”
“…Well, yeah, I am.”
“Would you kiss me now?”
“What? Why would I do that?”
Shiori-chan held up her index finger and smiled.
“Because if you kiss me directly, you won’t care about indirect kissing.”
“Well, first of all, you have to realize that people who can kiss here don’t care about indirect kisses.”
“Good grief, you’re still as impetuous as ever, Onii-san.”
She hits me where it hurts the most and I weakly clear my throat.
“Well, if you can’t eat in three seconds, you can kiss me.”
“W-Wait, hold up! I’ll eat it now!”
As the count approached, I rushed to put the shumai in my mouth.
It’s delicious… I was concerned about indirect kissing, but in fact, there was no change in the chopsticks themselves in any way. Of course, it was only an indirect kiss. It’s useless to be overly conscious of it.
“Mou~, Onii-san, you don’t want to kiss me that badly?”
“I think I already told you before that I’m only going out with you on a trial basis, but I can’t go that far.”
“You’re so serious.”
“It’s okay. That’s what I like about you.”
My heart skipped a beat as I was hit with a straightforward fondness.
There’s no way that any man wouldn’t feel good about coming straight at them like this.
I put my chopsticks down on the table and put my arms around Shiori-chan’s shoulders as a way to get back at her.
“I just wanted to hug you.”
“…Isn’t it unfair to do that all of a sudden?”
“The one who is cheating is Shiori-chan. You should also be on the receiving end of the likes and dislikes. You’ll be overwhelmed.”
I guess she was still weak against hugs, since the effect was immediate.
Her cheeks began to turn red, then her face and neck began to turn red as well.
“But if I don’t say it, Onii-san won’t get the message…”
“Well… you might have a point.”
It may seem strange to admit it to myself, but I seem to be pretty insensitive.
I’m not aware of the goodwill that people around me extend to me. That’s why Shiori-chan is expressing her feelings to me from the front.
Shiori-chan only turned her head and glanced at me.
“Onii-san, have you come to think of me as a love interest?”
“I wouldn’t do this to my little sister’s friend.”
“That’s a muddled way of putting it, which is typical of Onii-san.”
“…To be honest, I’m not sure if I like Shiori-chan yet.”
“So I guess I’ll just keep it on a trial basis.”
“That’s fine. It’s not like I’m setting a deadline.”
Shiori-chan did not complain and gave her permission.
When I think about it, it’s only been a day and a half since we started going out on a trial basis.
The time I’ve spent with Shiori-chan has been so fresh that I feel like I’ve spent more time with her.
No, wait. Should I focus on the fact that I’m starting to change my mind even though it’s only been this long?
At this rate, I don’t know what will happen by the time Yuzu returns from her excursion.
Shiori-chan smiled shyly and brought her face close to mine. Her mouth brushes my cheek.
“Ehehe~, this is about as good as it gets, isn’t it, Onii-san?”
“…T-That’s not good either! Haa, this girl…”
“Come on, Onii-san, let’s get back to dinner. You’re still going to spoil me to the fullest, aren’t you?”
At Shiori-chan’s urging, I let out a sigh and picked up my chopsticks.
It may not be long before I fall for her.
I apologize for the censored look of this story. In fact, it is censored… ^_^;
I’m sorry for the half-hearted ending, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I’d rather complete this story in a roundabout way than to leave it as it is.
Thank you very much for your patience with me up to this point. m(_ _)m
Translator’s Afterword: I don’t know the author’s twitter or something so I couldn’t look a bit into their life (if they actually use it though). Well, that was a short ride but rather enjoyable to say the least. This felt like a prolonged oneshot.
If you guys enjoy the translations, please do consider helping me out on getting myself a laptop in which I’ll be using for my translations and studies.
Also, I finished translating the first volume of the LN series [For some reason, a gal in my class became friends with my step-sister. “Can I go to your house today?”] (I haven’t uploaded the entire c4, epilogue, and author’s afterword though lol, but the editing would be finished in a few hours or so after posting this). It’s also a romance series as obviously seen from the title, but it only has one love interest. Although the description may depict otherwise, from what I’ve read it’s very different from that. I hope you guys give it a read too.
