“I would like to make my relationship with Yukimi kun public.”

I wonder how I felt when Hakari chan said that with a puzzled look on her face.

It’s hard to put it into words.

She was not thinking about Yukimi kun or Yuki’s feelings.

This Hakariya Hakari, the most popular idol in Japan today, has an IQ of 3 for romantic feelings.

Uncharacteristic aggressive feelings shown.

Why can’t I?

Hakari chan tilts her head as if to say so.

No, she’s cute, but what she’s saying isn’t cute at all !

Hakari chan has always been like this.

She says things she shouldn’t say.

Even in variety and talk shows, it is often edited out.

I guess it makes sense for Hakari chan, but she can’t think about how it affects the people around her.

Hakari chan sometimes says that I am her only friend, and I like her too, so I try to follow her as much as possible.

But this time I can’t.

“Hakari chan, you can’t do that.”

“Why not, Kyoko?”

“If they find out about your boyfriend, you’ll definitely drop out of the top spot.”

“I don’t care if I fall.”

“Wha……! ! Do you know how many people are trying to get there !”

Tch. Do you know the value of the first place in Koikoizaka……?

Unbearable tears are seeping out of my eyes.

I’ve been crying a lot today.

“Onii chan, what do you think about Hakari chan’s declining popularity?”

Yuki chan, who couldn’t bear to see it, interjected.

“……It’s not good. There’s no need to go out of your way to make yourself less popular.”

Yukimi kun, who guessed Yuki chan’s intentions, answered that.

Is that your strategy?

As expected of brother and sister.

“…Yukimi kun, do you like me as the number one on Koikoizaka?”

“Well yeah.”

Yukimi kun agrees.

I thought it was a lie.

I think he’s not interested in that kind of thing and it’s not the basis of his evaluation.

I still don’t know about Yukimi kun, but I do know that much.

“I see…….”

But Hakari chan thinks that is Yukimi kun’s true intention.

She looked somewhat sad and resigned.

I felt a little sorry for her, but it was the only way to stop Hakari chan from going out of control.

“All right. I’ll refrain from doing it.”

Good.

I could feel a breath of relief escape from Yuki chan and myself.

I’m relieved.

Yukimi kun was so natural, I didn’t know what he was thinking.

After that, Yuki chan asked me for various requests for the future.

From her student bag, she took out a number of color printed materials, which she handed out to everyone.

The contents included easy-to-understand information on the patterns of celebrity relationships that are exposed.

“Yuki chan, did you make this?”

“Yes. I’m good at PowerPoint a little bit. Of course, the copyrights are strictly ignored, so please don’t post it anywhere else.”

It’s amazing. I wonder if Yuki chan is really 14 years old.

I flipped through the documents.

It was interesting. What I thought was that people can’t stop “smelling” after all.

Most of the relationships were revealed through their social media and blog posts.

There were some cases where it was discovered that they were cohabiting because the veins of the vegetables in the photos matched, which was too terrible to laugh at.

“As you can see, it’s mostly from the Internet. I’m not worried because Onii chan doesn’t do social media at all……”

“I don’t do it either. It’s mostly managed by manager.”

“Then, what about the leaked rumor that Hakari chan liked Onii chan?”

“Ah……that was me. I found out his name is Yukimi Daifuku kun, and I like him.”

Hakari chan said shyly.

“You’ve done it.”

Yukimi kun lunged in unintentionally.

He didn’t seem to be angry, but was smiling like a fool.

Seeing Yukimi kun like that, Hakari chan gets embarrassed.

Hakari chan glances at Yukimi kun, as if she can’t look directly at him.

Thump.

I wonder what it is.

I don’t know, my chest.

“Well, basically, if you didn’t do it, it’s okay. Now it’s time to deal with the weekly magazine……”

After that, Yuki chan told the basics, such as the need for disguise and the choice of meeting place, and that the rest would depend on how the office handled the situation.

“Anyway, Hakari chan, please attend the office meeting at least once. They may have their own ideas.”

“I understand, Yuki chan.:

She’s already called her by her first name…….

Hakari chan nods with a mysterious look on her face.

Even though she usually doesn’t remember the names of the members for a while, she listen intently to what Yuki chan says.

Hey, I became friends with Yuki chan first.

……I’m weird, I knew it.

I’m going to go home and sleep now.

I’m suddenly feeling tired.

“Are you okay, Akamori?”

Yukimi kun calls out to me.

…This person is really aware of the surroundings.

“Yeah, I’m just a little tired.”

I honestly let out a whine.

When I’m asked if I’m okay, I always say yes.

For some reason, I couldn’t give such a casual response in front of this person.

Yuki chan came up to me and said.

“Onii chan, Kyoko-chan seems unwell, please take her home.”

“I understand.”

Eh? I was about to decline, but for some reason I couldn’t say it.

“Kyoko, are you okay? I can take you home.”

“Hakari chan, I want to chat with you more as his little sister and get to know you better.”

“I-is that so? I want to be friends with you too !”

Hakari chan is very easy…….

It’s true that Yuki chan is extremely cute, even for someone like me who is usually surrounded by idols.

When Yukimi kun and I were leaving the room, she winked at me in a way that only I could see it.

I don’t know what her intention was, but she was as cute as an idol.

 

ーーーーーー☆彡

Yukimi kun and I walk down the street after it’s already dark.

When I say something to him, he responds, but if I don’t say anything, he stays silent.

I’ve been alone with other boys my age on the way home from school before, but never like this.

They would try to liven things up, or try to keep the conversation going.

Yukimi kun never did anything like that.

That made me feel comfortable.

Maybe that’s why I naturally opened my mouth.

“I’m actually quite proud of my job as an idol.”

“Yeah.”

“Idols survive by the support, praise, and money they receive from fans all over the country.”

“That’s true.”

“But it’s easy to forget that when you put the numbers in thousands and tens of thousands, each and every one of them is a living, breathing person.”

What did I start talking about?

“Everyone is making ends meet with their own limited time and money and spending it on us.”

“Yeah.”

“Among them, there are a lot of male fans, and some of them buy hundreds of CDs by themselves…….”

Yukimi kun was listening to my impromptu speech.

“I don’t think those people would want to do that to an idol who has a boyfriend.”

“I guess that’s mostly the case.”

Yeah……that’s right…….

“I’ve come this far without ever being in a relationship or anything like that. I’ve always been determined to achieve the goals I set in the beginning.”

“What’s your goal?”

“First place on Koikoizaka.”

Yes, my dream is to be at the top of the group that I had dreamed of as a child.

“Is that why you were angry at Hakariya?”

“Yeah. And I couldn’t believe that Hakari chan fell in love with Yukimi kun at first.”

“I couldn’t believe it either. I’m sure she’ll get tired of me soon.”

I felt a click.

I didn’t know I had a short temper.

“Yukimi kun, you don’t know how attractive you are.”

“Huh? Compared to you guys, I’m not attractive at all.”

He snickered at me.

Awawawa.

“Wha…! Yukimi kun is kind, he has a nice voice, his face is cool if I look closely, he’s strong, and he has cracked abs……”

“What, you like me too, Akamori?”

“Eh ! !??”

A strange voice came out.

We’re waiting for the signal at the crosswalk now.

I think Yukimi kun is about 20cm taller than me, partly because I’m petite.

Yukimi kun lowered his face close to my ear and asked,

“So how is it, Akamori?”

Too close…..stop…..

“Y-Yukimi ku, you don’t really like Hakari chan, do you?”

I talk fast as I look ahead.

What am I trying to say?

“…Did you hear from Yuki?”

“Okay then. Me too.”

The traffic light turns green.

I can’t stop.

“Is it okay if I like you without permission?”

I said, looking forward with my hat on my head so that no one could see my face.

Without hearing any reply, I start to run.

“Y-you don’t have to answer ! See you later !”

What am I saying?

What am I saying?

What am I saying ! ! !

It’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing. It’s embarrassing.

The night breeze against my running cheeks didn’t cool the heat.
