The whole class was rumbling in the morning class. That’s right.

After all, in the corner of the classroom, there was a girl who had been a very popular idol until yesterday.

She had been an existence on TV, but now she was so close to us.

And the more attention Shiho gets, the more attention I, her brother, will get.

Shiho is an idol, so she may be used to getting attention from everyone, but I am not.

I was a rather plain boy.

Haru, who was sitting in front of me, seemed to be very interested in me and started whispering to me during class.

The teacher is going to be pissed at you.

“I didn’t know Koichi had such a cute little sister.”

“I didn’t know that either.”

“?”

Haru looks curious, but I’m not going to tell him much about the situation.

Actually, I don’t know much about the situation myself, and I can’t speak fluently without getting Shiho’s permission.
 

I simply told him that my parents had remarried and that we had become siblings and that I had found out about it yesterday.

With that, Haru withdrew from the conversation.

However, Haru still wanted to hear about it even during lunch break.

“Even so, it’s amazing how enviable it is to be Koichi’s younger sister, isn’t it?”

“No, it’s usually the other way around, isn’t it?”

Fans would cry if they heard that they could be the older brother of a popular idol.

On the other hand, I wouldn’t be happy if I became the younger sister of that average boy (who just has a bit of feminine power). 

But Haru shook her head.

“I don’t think so. You should have more confidence in yourself.”

“But you know what?”

“You are popular with girls.”

“Eh? Is that so?”

“There are a lot of girls who like Koichi. You are handsome.”

“W-Who?”

I’d love to know. No, the one I like is Hazuki though. ……?

But Haru smiled and said, “I won’t tell you.”

“I don’t care about that, I’m more envious of Koichi’s meals. Hashiro-san gets to eat Koichi’s food every day, right?”

“It’s no big deal. It’s just amateur cooking.”

“But it is very elaborate, isn’t it? Do you want to work in a profession related to cooking in the future? ”

I was asked by Haru, and I was at a loss for words.

Yes. I like cooking. But I think it’s another thing to make it my profession.

It is said that if you make a job out of what you love, you will hate it.

Besides – I am bound to the Komaki family and Teikyu Electric Railway. I can’t escape my position as its successor.

Before I could answer, Shiho had come to my seat. She was expecting to be bombarded with questions from her classmates, but almost no one was talking to her.

Her classmates, both boys and girls, were keeping each other in check, and it seemed they were trying to gauge the distance between her and their idols.

I guess they can’t get close to her so easily because they admire her so much.

“Hey, onii san, …….”

“Oh, let’s go to lunch.”

When I say this, Shiho shyly replies “Yes.” The fact that the idol’s expression was directed only at me made me feel dizzy.

Haru waves his hand and giggles.

Thus, I leave the classroom with Shiho, lunch box in hand. Everyone in the class is looking at us.

Hazuki also glanced at us. As usual, Hazuki would have gone to the cafeteria with her girl friends.

We went out into the hallway and looked at each other.

“Where should we eat ……?”

“In the classroom, it would attract too much attention, wouldn’t it?”

“Yes. So I’m hoping there’s someplace good …….”

There are not many places that come to mind.

The safest place was the roof.

So when I suggested this to Shiho, her face lit up.

“I’ve never been on a school rooftop before,”

“Is that so?”

“The school I went to before was off-limits to visitors. …… It feels like youth, doesn’t it?”

The previous school, huh?

Come to think of it, I don’t know anything about Shiho.

We have a relationship where I cook for her and she eats well.

Of course that’s important, but that shouldn’t be the only way to be brother and sister.

I recall some information about Shiho as an idol from an interview or something.

“You went to an all-girls middle and high school.”

“You know a lot about me.”

“I was also a fan of the idol Hashiro Shiho.”

“T-thank you very much.”

Shiho’s face turns red, a little embarrassed.
 

“Why did you transfer to our school? You probably had friends at your old school.”

“I didn’t have any friends….”

“Eh?”

For a moment, there is a shadow on Shiho’s face. The reason for this dark expression of Shiho is what I am curious about.

But soon Shiho smiled brightly as usual. 

“The new home is in Shibuya, isn’t it? The girls’ school I went to is quite a distance from my house.”

“Oh, I see.”

Even after taking a hiatus from her idol activities, Shiho is still a celebrity. If she commutes to school by train, she will be attacked.

In that respect, this school is located just a few minutes’ walk from Komaki’s townhouse in Shibuya.

Because it is a prestigious school, security is also excellent.

“And since onii san is there too, I feel even safer.”

Shiho giggles.

I was about to say that I, who is powerless, won’t be of much use in protecting Shiho, and then stopped. Since Shiho is relying on me, I can’t deny it. 

“If you have any problems, you can tell me anything. I’m your onii san, after all.”

“Yes. I’m counting on you.”

Shiho laughs.

Soon after, we arrived at the rooftop.

The rooftop of the main school building has a lot of space and flower beds.

The sunlight is just right for eating lunch.

However, it may have been a mistake to come here.

Shiho blushes.

“I-it’s all couples.”

All around us were two couples, a man and a woman. Naturally, they must be in a relationship.

There was a sweet atmosphere in the air.

“A-anyway, let’s have …… lunch.”

When I said this in an attempt to be covert, Shiho nodded sharply.
 

The two of us sat down on the bench side by side.

“Do we look like a …… couple when we do this?”

Shiho murmurs and looks embarrassed.

The students around me, male and female, were also glancing in my direction. Some of them may have noticed that it was Hashiro Shiho.

Well, let’s not think about unnecessary things.

We’re just here to eat lunch.

Shiho looked very happy as she took out her lunch box.

“I can’t wait to see what kind of bento it is!”

“I hope it won’t disappoint.”

“If it’s onii san’s bento, I’m sure it will be delicious!”

Shiho said in a bouncy tone and opened the lid of the stainless steel lunch box.

Shiho then gulped.

“T-This is ……!”
