“……, all done.”
“That’s a relief.”
“Good job, Ryoya and onee chan”
I’ve been working on my summer vacation homework in Riona’s room for the past few days, and today I finally finished it.
“If I had done it alone, I probably wouldn’t have finished half of it, so thank you very much.”
“I’m glad I could help Ryoya.”
Since Reona and Riona also look refreshed, they must be happy to have finished their summer vacation homework.
“Even so, it ended sooner than I thought.”
The current time is just before midnight, which means I have the entire afternoon to myself. For now, I’m going to go home and have some lunch, and then I’m going to do some dungeon rounds of the shadow game.
“Oh, that’s right. Do you want to go to the pool afterwards?”
“It looks nice and cold, so I want to go.”
Hearing Reona’s suggestion, Riona immediately agreed. Come to think of it, I haven’t been in a pool for a few years. I thought about it, but then I said yes too.
“It’s certainly perfect for a hot day like today, I’ll go too.”
“Then it’s decided. Let’s go to Tokyo Summer Hills for the pool.”
“Tokyo Summer Hills is a domed, glass-walled place, right?”
“Oh yeah, it’s close to here and it’s big, so I thought it would be nice.”
If I remember correctly, there are water slides, Jacuzzis, relaxation pools, saunas, restaurants, etc., so you can enjoy the whole day.
“Well, I need to get my swimsuit and stuff ready, and I’m going home to get it.”
“Ok, let’s leave when Ryoya-kun comes back.”
“In the meantime, I and onee chan will get ready too.”
I left Riona’s room and started to go home. I left the cool, air-conditioned room and went outside. It was so hot that I was covered in sweat by the time I arrived home.
I washed my hands in the bathroom and was about to go to my room when Mio came walking down the hallway with an ice cream in her hand.
“Onii chan, welcome home. You’re home already.”
“I’m home. I finished all my homework for the summer vacation.”
Mio froze with a look of disbelief. I’m sure she was surprised because she saw me last year doing my homework on the last day of summer vacation while crying.
“So in the afternoon I decided to go to the pool with Reona and Riona, that’s why I came back to pick up my swimsuit.”
“Lately, I feel like you’re becoming less and less the onii chan I know. ……”
I would never have planned to do homework or hang out with girls during summer vacation if I hadn’t done so last year.
“I’ve got a lot on my plate, you know?”
“Hmmm. Well, that’s all well and good, but do you remember what onii chan promised to do this weekend?”
“It’s a summer festival. We go there every year, of course I remember.”
The summer festival that we have been going to every year since we were children is this weekend, and I am planning to go with Mio again this year.
“I’m looking forward to it this year too.”
Mio said and went back to her room while eating ice cream.

We arrived at Tokyo Summer Hills by bus and train, and decided to have lunch at a restaurant before swimming.
“Hmmm, what should we eat?”
“Well, it’s before swimming, so I don’t want to eat something too greasy.”
“I want something light for lunch.”
We were talking about such things as we walked toward the restaurant. By the way, since it was summer vacation, Tokyo Summer Hills was filled with a lot of people.
After writing our names on the waiting list at the entrance of the restaurant and waiting for a while, we were guided to our seats by the waiter.
We looked at the menu and thought for a while about what to eat, but in the end all three of us decided to order Zaru-soba, which seemed to be the lightest of the three.
“By the way, Ryoya kun, you’ve kept your promise to us, haven’t you?”
“Promise …… Oh, are you talking about the Purikura from the other day by any chance? If so, I’m keeping them up right now.”
I wondered what she was talking about for a moment, but soon realized what she was talking about, so I pulled my phone out of my pocket and showed them the proof.
On the back of my phone was a picture of me making a funny face while being hugged by Reona and Riona from both sides taken at Phase One.
“I’m glad Ryoya is keeping his promise to us.”
“Ryoya-kun would never betray us, right?”
“Of course not, I made a promise to both of you.”
In fact, I could never tell them that I was thinking of stripping it off soon. I had said I would check regularly, but I never thought I would really do it.
“By the way, if you had taken the purikura off without my permission, Ryoya would have had a terrible punishment awaiting him.”
“…… By the way, what kind?”
“That’s a secret.”
“Yeah, it wouldn’t be funny if I told Ryoya-kun.”
I am curious to know what kind of punishment awaited me, but I am sure it was nothing. I’m embarrassed, but I guess I’ll just have to put up with it.
