Saijo no Osewa ~ Takane no Hana [LN] - V2 Short Story 1
Digital Exclusive: Marking of Konohana Hinako
During a holiday, at the Konohana family mansion.
[Itsuki… What did you do when you stayed at Tennouji-san’s house?]
Hinako came to my room and suddenly asked me that.
[What I did, it’s pretty much what I said before. We had dinner, and then it started raining quite hard, so I had to ask you for permission to stay the night…]
[….In more detail]
Hinako said, with her pouting.
Even though I had already been scolded for that… Apparently Hinako still hadn’t completely forgiven me.
[I had dinner, then, I believe I took a bath… and I studied in my room for a bit at the end]
[All… with Tennouji-san?]
[….Well, I guess]
Hinako pretended to think for a while,
[I’ve decided. Today will be the day that Itsuki does with me… everything you did with Tennouji-san]
She uttered such a thing.
[Then… We eat first]
It was just time for dinner and I went to the dining room with Hinako.
I sat next to Hinako and enjoyed the food that was served. The dinner with Tennouji-san was just a part of the manners training, but I didn’t need to tell her that.
[Itsuki… This, it’s good, so I’ll give it to you]
[Thanks… wait, you just don’t like it]
[Muuu… got found]
She only gave me peppers, so I noticed her motive.
Shizune-san, who was in the kitchen said [Thank god Itsuki-san is here…].
[Next… is bath]
After eating and resting for a while, we headed to the bathroom in Hinako’s room.
[Itsuki… hair… wash]
As I was told, I carefully washed Hinako’s long hair.
Hinako let out a happy sound.
After getting out of the bath, we then headed to my room.
[And… after the bath, it’s time to talk]
Hinako looked satisfied, as if to say, “Mission Accomplished” with a [Fumu]
Hinako rolled onto my bed as she usually does.
[…What kind of things… Did you talk with Tennouji-san…?]
[It was just small talk… then study-related things]
I remembered that day when I stayed at Tennouji-san’s house.
『I want to beat Konohana Hinako!!』
Let’s just not mention that Tennouji-san made such a statement.
[Itsuki… do you like living here?]
Suddenly, Hinako asked.
I could answer that question immediately.
[Yeah. I like it]
Her response was only a small murmur .
Then Hinako closed her eyes, with a happy face.
I called out to her, but she didn’t answer.
Seeing Hinako’s comfortable sleeping face, I let out a small sigh of relief.
(Looks like it’s the same as usual…)
What I did with Tennouji-san that day is something I do with Hinako every day.
I’m not sure if Hinako really understands that though. …With that thought in mind, I gently pulled the futon over Hinako as she sighed in her sleep.
There’s still 1 more SS so sit tight.
