I want to make the school's "Silent princess" talk, so I invited her (who's super cute) out on a date today. ~Anyways, she's so very intense when it comes to skinship, that it's going to take my reason away~ - Chapter 3
“Hey, do you have any connection with Aikawa-san?”
“What are you talking about, stupid brother?”
[TLN: i really want to use “baka ani” ok this part kek]
‘Stupid brother… what!?’ I know It’s genetically inevitable that we go through a rebellious phase, but it’s hard to accept it when it’s actually happening.
The cute little sister who used to be so attached to me is now a shadow of her former self.
In order to not spoil Mina’s mood, I recited my words again while taking an ice cream out from the refrigerator.
“Hey, do you have any connection with Aikawa-san?”
“You’re not very good at changing the topic, you know? Oh well… so, this Aikawa-san, is it Aikawa Mio-senpai?”
Kurose Mina. She’s a JK and a first year student who attends the same school as me.
She plays tennis incredibly well, and even though she’s only been in the school for a month, Mina has already surpassed her seniors and became a regular.
She has the good looks of an idol. On top of that, she’s also smart. She’s both well versed in sports and literature and is good-looking*. She has extraordinary talent, to the point where I need to use two four-character idioms* to describe how amazing Mina is.
[TLN: 熟語 – idiom] [TLN: literate(文武両道) and good-looking(容姿端麗)]
Her long black hair is slightly damp from the bath, and her well-managed skin is smooth and white. Her face is so well-proportioned that it’s hard to believe we’re blood related, along with a slim body, probably due to the amount of exercise she gets.
In today’s terms, she’s like a beautiful girl with long black hair.
But Mina is my own sister, so I don’t have any feelings for her, nor do I feel nervous around her. She says that her classmates often confess their feelings for her, but strangely enough, she hasn’t gone out with anyone.
I guess she’s old enough to have a boyfriend by now, but if she does, I’m going to have mixed feelings about it.
If a guy were to hold hands with Mina and say, “We’re dating!” I’m afraid that I would slap that guy in the face.
“I’ve never talked to Aikawa-senpai before… and I’ve only heard rumors about her once in a while.”
“Hmmm, just as I thought…”
The truth of the shared umbrella incident is once again in the dark. I thought for sure that Aikawa-san and Mina had become friends and that she had gotten involved with me because of that relationship, but Mina shook her head and closed her eyes.
She doesn’t seem to be hiding anything from me so I’m assuming there’s no connection between the two of them.
“What? Did you assault her or something?”
“No, of course not…!”
Mina looked at me with a frown while she licked the ice cream with her small tongue.
I lightly poked Mina in the head, and perhaps as payback, she took my phone and moved to the couch, with a grin forming across her mouth.
“Nii’s password is 9696, right? I’m sure it’s full of naughty pictures anyways~”
“Hey! This sh*tty sister. Give it back!”
“Ah! I’m in. I wonder what it looks like~”
“Hey! Are you kidding me!? You’re gonna make dinner so awkward!”
“Are you lusting over me, by any chance?”
When we were noisily messing around the living room, mom stopped us and told us to “calm down”.
As expected, Mina had no choice but to return the phone to me, and she did so, albeit a little grumpily.
(I was saved…)
I let out a sigh of relief, shifted my position and sat down on the sofa.
I had succeeded in retrieving my treasure folder.
Our family consists of four members: my father, mother, me, and my younger sister. My father’s name is Kurose Shouta, and my mother’s name is Kurose Mirai.
My father always comes home late from work, so it’s usually the three of us at home. Our family is only together for a short time in the morning.
We don’t have any family problems, and I think we have a good family relationship.
The relationship between Mina and I, who were having a heated battle earlier, is also good(?). What just happened earlier was nothing more than a joke.
(Well, she might not get away by just joking around…)
The treasure folder is filled with my collection of twisted sexual habits.
If Mina had messed with the files… she might have triggered the collapse of our family. For this, I should be grateful to our mother for stopping her.
“I’ll study for a bit…”
I turned the doorknob and walked into my room and sat down on the round chair, placing my bag, which had been dry for some time, on the desk.
If I could, I would have taken a break, but I had a hellish midterm exam waiting for me in a month.
I couldn’t let my guard down for even a moment, as I was aiming to go to college. My class rankings are always in the top three, but if I let my guard down, I could be in the double digits in an instant.
I slapped my cheeks once and bent down to read the reference book in front of me.
I decided to start with math, my weakest subject. I’ll start it off with a difficult problem…. Let’s see, you have to substitute this equation to get x, and then find the regularity…
(Aikawa-san…. Why with someone like me…)
And here, I’ll write the equation that I just wrote. Then, if I find y from here, I can get to the answer…
(Ahh~ that was so cute!)
“Crap! I can’t concentrate!”
I threw the pencil away and scratched the back of my head. The scene of what happened earlier burnt itself into my mind and won’t leave me alone.
I couldn’t tear myself away from that angelic smile that she gave me so modestly at the end, so I let gravity take over as I sank into the bed and pulled the blanket over my head.
It would be easier to think of what happened earlier as just a dream…
If I think about it, it’s impossible for an ordinary person like “Kurose Ryouta” to get involved with a popular person called the Silent Princess of the school.
The nobles live with the nobles, and the commoners live with the commoners. I think that’s normal.
The same can be said in the school, extroverted students spend time with other extroverted students, meanwhile introverted students spend time with introverted students. Well, it’s hard to say which group Aikawa-san belongs to.
I found a blue mechanical pencil among the scattered handouts and went back to my desk, determined to forget about the things that happened today.
But even after that, I couldn’t get the scene out of my mind, so I quickly turned off the lights and subsequently fell into a deep sleep.
