My Childhood Friend, Who Is Like an Older Sister to Me, Clearly Has a Crush on Me - Chapter 1-6
After finishing my part-time job today, I headed home as quickly as I could.
There was actually no particular reason for me to hurry, but somehow I had a feeling that I needed to get home soon.
Nao-san and the others might come first, but they could just talk to my mother and get permission to enter right away, since I had already unlocked the door to the detached room.
And that’s the reason why I want to go home early.
I’m worried that they might start raiding the place.
Of course, there are naughty books in that room as well, like the last time in my room.
I happened to find one the other day when I was practicing alone.
It’s not mine, so it must belong to big bro and his friends.
Unlike when Nao-san accidentally found it in my room, it would be difficult to explain if she found it in that room.
Rather, I would be very embarrassed if they found such a thing in the first place.
That’s why I have to go home and deal with those books as soon as possible.
Yet, I got into more trouble soon after while thinking about that.
A girl in the girls’ school uniform was walking near me before we bumped into each other and fell.
Her skirt was lifted up, and what peeked out from inside was pure white.
But this was not the time to be admiring such a thing.
“Are you all right?”
“Ah, yes. I’m fineーOuch!!”
The girl tried to quickly stand up after saying so, but she crouched back down on the spot.
When I looked at what was wrong, I saw that her knee was bleeding.
My bad premonition came true.
However, I couldn’t pretend to be a stranger in this situation.
In the end, I guess it would lead to this.
“This is a terrible injury.”
“What should I do…? Even though I have plans after this….”
“Let’s go to a nearby park for now.”
I said to the girl and lent her my shoulder.
“Thank you very much, ummーー”
“Don’t mind it. After all, I can’t leave this aloneーー”
To think my bad habits of being a public morals committee member would come out outside of school….
Well, I guess it couldn’t be helped since it happened so close to it.
We finally reached the park and I immediately headed for the tap water.
I then took out a handkerchief from my shirt pocket and dipped it in.
“It might sting a little…. So please be patient.”
I squeeze the wet handkerchief and place it on the girl’s injured knee.
The girl looked like she was in pain, as if the wound was stinging her.
But the blood had stopped for the time being, so there should be no problems for now.
I wet the handkerchief once again, wrung it out, and this time, I wrapped it around the girl’s knee.
“Sorry, I don’t have a bandaid with me currently, but I had to perform first-aid…. In exchange, I’ll give you this handkerchief. You can treat it properly after you get home.”
“I will. Thank you for all your help.”
“You don’t have to. Well thenーー”
I left the park after saying my farewell.
Now that I think about it, I forgot to ask her name, but oh well.
I’m not that interested either.
The only thing I noticed was that she was wearing the same school uniform as Kana-neechan.
I wonder how Kana-neechan is doing now. Maybe she’s still working.
I can’t help but think about her since we’re going to practice again today.
For now, let’s just go home.
As I approached the detached room, I heard sounds of guitar and drums playing.
When I entered, I found Nao-san and Misa-san had arrived here first and were practicing.
They were still wearing their school uniforms, so they must have come right after school.
“Hey, Kaede-kun. We’re using this room without any reservation, is that okay?”
“I don’t mind. No one was using it anyway, and I also came here to practice.”
“Want to try playing together once, then?”
“Sure, I’ll give it a try.”
“Alright! Let’s go.”
“Eh…. Wait a minute, I’m not ready yet….”
I picked up the bass guitar in a hurry.
“You don’t have to hurry, Kaede-kun. We also just arrived a little while ago.”
Misa-san said with a smile.
Nevertheless, if she practices the drums in her uniform, I couldn’t help but notice something down there.
The girls’ school skirts are so short that when they sit with their legs open, their underwear is completely visible.
Even now, I can see a glimpse of pink underwear.
Well, they’re from the girls’ school, so I guess it doesn’t bother them that much.
And I won’t let it bother me either.
“Wait a sec. I’ll finish this quickly.”
I said and tuned my bass guitar.
Then, the room door opened and Kana-neechan, as well as Rie-san came in.
“Sorry, we’re late….”
“ーーSorry, did you guys wait?”
The one who answered them was Nao-san.
“We also just arrived a few minutes ago, so we didn’t wait that long.”
“I see, that’s good…. We had to work a little longer than usual, and it was hard to get out of it.”
“Yeah, it was a bit busy.”
“Seems it was hard on you guys.”
It looks like Kana-neechan and Rie-san work at the same place.
Needless to say, both of them are also still in their uniforms.
“ーーWe’ll be ready in a sec.”
Saying so, Kana-neechan and Rie-san started to get ready.
I’m not complaining at this point, but I’m not so sure about practicing while they are still in their school uniforms, since this is not a club activity.
Though, I can’t speak for the others either.
After that, we practiced as usual.
Of course, I was relieved that they did not find any more naughty books.
During the night, after practice was over, Kana-neechan and the others came to my room.
They sat on my bed and on the cushions I had prepared for them, looking relaxed, though they didn’t seem to have any particular need for me this time.
My mother sometimes came in looking worried, but I didn’t understand what she was so worried about.
“Kaede-kun’s room really makes me feel at ease~”
“I somehow agree. It’s strange, even though it’s a boy’s room, right?”
“Yeah yeah. Men were supposed to be beasts, but I feel relieved when I see Kaede-kun.”
The three seniors said so while relaxing.
No matter how tired they are after practice, all of them are too lax.
I could completely see the inside of their skirts since they were too defenseless.
I beg you, please don’t dress that vulnerable.
I’m a man too, so this kind of thing is still unbearable for me. No matter how much I don’t want to be conscious of it, I will still be, you know?
Even Nao-san, who seems to be the most aloof and decent person, is lying on my bed as if she was at ease….
Obviously, it was Kana-neechan who scolded them.
“Hey, everyone! You can relax all you want, but you’re right in front of Otouto-kun! Please be a little more careful!”
“Eeh~, Even though I thought we could finally take a break…. We also want to be healed by ‘Otouto-kun’ like you, Kana-chan.”
“It’s not like I’m doing that….”
“You don’t have to hide it. We know exa~ctly what you’re talking about.”
“Like I said, that’s not it~!”
Kana-neechan seemed to be at a loss for words to reply to Rie-san’s remark.
“By the way, Kaede-kun. Earlier, it looked like you were secretly hiding something in that room. What exactly did you hide?”
“Eh!? It’s not that big of a deal….”
I was startled when Nao-san asked so.
Then, the one who responded was Misa-san.
“Something’s fishy~, did you hide something weird?”
“N-No such things. I’m in no condition to hide anything.”
I replied impatiently.
It would be bad if the girls knew that there were more naughty books hidden.
Even if that was big bro’s, I would still feel guilty and I don’t like it if both of us were seen as the same kind of people.
Hearing this, Kana-neechan looked at me immediately and approached me.
“Otouto-kun, can you please tell the truth? I don’t think it’s right to keep secrets from us.”
To think that even Kana-neechan suspects me….
It was just simply because of big bro’s erotic books and it had come this far.
“Hold on, I’m not hiding anything. I was just trying to figure out what to do with big bro’s stuff.”
“Ryuuichi-san’s stuff? What exactly was it?”
“It’s not that big of a deal…. That’s why, you don’t have to worry about it.”
“It kinda bothers me even more when you say that, though….”
“I know how you feel, but it was big bro’s and It’s not like I want to touch it either. Rather, I don’t want to get scolded later on.”
“I see, I guess it can’t be helped. I’m curious to know what it is, but I don’t want to get scolded either, so I won’t pry further.”
“ーーOh, it’s already this late? I should probably go home now.”
Rie-san looked at the clock by my bed.
The time was already 9 pm.
It won’t be weird if she was reprimanded for coming back this late if she has a curfew in her house.
“Ah, it’s true. It’s already 9 pm, huh? I also have to do my homework when I get home.”
“Well, since that’s the case, I’m going home now.”
“Yeah, be careful, Rie.”
“Kana-chan too, no matter how close you are to your beloved little brother, don’t let your guard down too much.”
“Geez! It’s not like that!”
“Beloved” they say, but I don’t have that kind of relationship with Kana-neechan though.
But, I certainly did promise her to go shopping together this Sunday.
The three seniors each took their bag and left the room.
I also decided to see them off to the front door.
“Alright, see you tomorrow.”
“See you tomorrow.”
Nao-san and Rie-san left the house after saying their farewell.
As for Misa-san, she uttered, “Oh, that’s right!” and walked up to me as if she had just remembered something.
“You must escort Kana-chan properly, okay? See you!”
With that, she kissed me on the cheek and left the house.
I stood there stunned.
Kana-neechan, who was watching us, suddenly released a terrible murderous intent and said to me,
“Seems like you’ve become closer with Misa-chan before I know it.”
“No…. That was something Natori-senpai did out of the blue, and I have no idea why….”
“Hmmm~ I’m sure you are.”
Kana-neechan had a sullen look on her face.
I don’t know what’s wrong, but is she perhaps angry at me?
“ーーI’m also going home now.”
“Then I’ll walk you home.”
“I don’t need it.”
“I don’t want to walk with Otouto-kun who’s ogling at other girls.”
No…. I don’t think that’s true.
I’m not really ogling at all.
“No, I wasn’t ogling atーー”
“You should ask yourself that. You were even fawning over Nao-chan today, weren’t you?”
“Was I fawning? I think it would be more correct to say that I was having trouble looking at her because she was so vulnerable.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes. I was the only guy in the room, so if she was that defenseless, well….”
“I see. So I got it wrong, huh?”.
I tilted my head in wonder.
“Don’t worry about it. Well then, I’d better be going.”
“I’ll walk you home.”
“It’s fine for today.”
“I just feel like going home alone today.”
I had no choice if she insisted.
I stopped at the doorway and said to Kana-neechan,
“I see…. Then it can’t be helped. Well, see you tomorrow, Kana-neechan.”
“Yeah, see you tomorrow.”
Kana-neechan finally left the house.
She didn’t seem that angry anymore, which is good, but I wonder if our shopping on Sunday will go well. I’m getting kinda worried.
