Since I’ve Entered the World of Romantic Comedy Manga, I’ll Do My Best to Make the Heroine Who Doesn’t Stick With the Hero Happy. - Chapter 22: Rinke's feelings
After Onii-chan left the house, I stood there dazed for a while.
After a couple of seconds, I sighed and went back to the living room.
I sat down and ate the rest of my breakfast in a daze.
“My Onii-chan… is going on a date…”
I couldn’t help but mutter what I had been thinking in my head for a long time.
As for Rinke, she didn’t expect herself to be so disturbed by the fact that her brother Tsukasa had gone out on a date.
(No, my brother is a sophomore in high school… He’s old enough to go on a date already…)
As I was eating with these thoughts in mind, the rice on my plate already disappeared without my knowledge.
Noticing this, I took my plate to the kitchen and dipped it in water.
Onii-chan’s breakfast will be eaten by his friend Yuichi Shigemoto, who’s still upstairs, as he had mentioned earlier.
Rinke went upstairs and knocked on the door of her onii-chan’s room.
The door opened immediately, and Yuuichi looked at me curiously.
“Hmm? Rinke, what’s wrong?”
“I made breakfast, would you like some?”
“What, for me?”
“I made it for my Onii-chan, but he left without eating it.”
“Oh, I see. I guess I’ll be grateful then.”
“I’ll bring it to you now.”
“Oh, then I’ll go to the living room… No, but he told me not to leave the room.”
“…it’s fine, isn’t it? It’s probably just a joke.”
“Really? Can we eat in the living room then?”
“Yes, I’m fine with it.”
So they both went to the living room.
Yuuichi sat down and ate the breakfast that Rinke had made.
“Mmm! It’s delicious, Rinke!”
Rinke thanked him while washing the dishes
“…Rinke, Are you okay?”
Yuuichi, who had been watching Rinke, asked as he ate his breakfast.
“Are you okay? You seem a little dazed for some reason.”
“No… about that. Yuuichi-san, do you know who my brother is going out with?”
“Yeah, I know her. She’s a girl in my class named Sei Shimada.”
Apparently, Onii-chan really is on a date with a girl.
“Is Onii-chan dating that person?”
Rinke was incredibly hesitant and nervous to ask that question, but she did so anyway.
“No, I don’t think they’re dating, not yet at least.”
I was almost relieved when I heard that they weren’t dating, but what he said still stuck to me, and my heart was suddenly in turmoil.
“Yeah, Tsukasa seemed to have already confessed to her after all.”
Rinke’s eyes widened when she heard that.
“Is it true… He confessed to her?”
“Yeah, Tsukasa said it himself. So I’m pretty sure that it’s true.”
“I-Is that so…”
She never thought that her own brother, Tsukasa, would confess to a girl one day.
“Thanks for the food. It was delicious, Rinke-chan.”
“Oh… thank you. Please hand over your plate.”
“I’ll wash the dishes Rinke-chan. You’ve been spacing out for quite a while, I think you’ll drop the dishes at this rate.”
Yuuichi stood in front of the kitchen sink in place of Rinke, and washed the dishes for her as well.
“I’ll take care of it, so you can go and rest in your room.”
“Well, I’ll take your word for it then. When you’re done, wipe it off with a towel and leave it there for me.”
With that, Rinke left the living room and went upstairs.
“…She seemed to be depressed, hearing that Tsukasa has someone he likes. It seems that it’s not only Tsukasa huh. Rinke too has a brother complex.”
Yuuichi washed the dishes slowly, muttering such things to himself.
Meanwhile, after going upstairs and returning to her room, Rinke collapsed face down on her own bed.
Her face turned to the side and looked in the direction of the wall… where Tsukasa’s room was.
“Onii-chan no Baka” [ED: In the off chance you don’t understand she’s just saying my brother’s an idiot]
–You said I was cute.
Rinke buried her face in the pillow, “Uuu!” She groaned.
I thought you said you loved me, Onii-chan.
