Shiho’s request that I become her lover made me feel that I was no longer in a position to interfere.


“Oh, no, of course I’m just pretending! I’m asking you to pretend to be my lover!”

Shiho shook her head in panic.

W-What, just pretending to …… be a girlfriend?

No, that’s still enough of a problem.

What’s more, Shiho blushes and says, ‘I-if onii san really wants to be my boyfriend then…I’ll think about it.’…..consider it…?

No, I have Hazuki, and I was rejected …….

I shook off the evil thoughts.

“Well, Shiho. Let’s not go with the idea of pretending to be boyfriend and girlfriend with me.”

“……Why not? Would it bother you if people think you’re dating me?”

Shiho looked up at me anxiously with a dejected expression on her face.

“No, I’m sure I will be very proud of myself if I had a girlfriend as cute as Shiho.”


Shiho’s face turns slightly red. You’ve probably been told that you’re cute a million times, so there’s no need to be embarrassed by me telling you that.

“I feel happy when onii san says that to me.”

Fufufu, Shiho laughed and said. I was shocked.

Idol’s expression was directed only at me.

Although I almost lost my composure, I managed to remember what I needed to say.

“I-I see. But you know, if I pretend to be boyfriend and girlfriend with Shiho, people will think that’s why she graduated, given the timing.”

“Ah, …….”

“I don’t want people to think that Shiho graduated because of some scandal. I also supporting Etoile Sandrillon.”

If she announces her graduation and cohabitation at the same time, people will think it is because she broke the rule against romance due to the timing. Currently, she is on an indefinite hiatus, not having graduated, so it’s a problem in that sense as well.

“I thought it was a good idea. …… too bad.”

Shiho easily retracted her opinion at my words.

The next one was Ichinomiya san.

“For now, why don’t we talk about Shiho another day? I don’t think we’ll get anywhere if we talk about it here.”

Ichinomiya-san also seemed to think about my words for a moment, folded her arms, and nodded.

“I guess so. It would be bad for Komaki-kun if I keep pushing. But… I don’t think it would be good for Shiho and Komaki-kun to live alone.”

“What kind of problem is there with living with onii san?”

A high school girl living with a boy her own age is a no-no, even if she isn’t an idol.

“What are you imagining, Mina? There’s no way a sister would do anything weird with her brother, right?”

“…… Shiho doesn’t seem to see Komaki-kun as an older brother.”

“What do you mean?”

“She thinks he’s a boy.”

Shiho’s face turned red at Ichinomiya san’s words.

“No, that’s not true! I don’t think of onii san as a boy at all!”

“T-That’s what hurts me. ……”

 When I jokingly say this, Shiho looks flustered and says, “No, that’s not what I meant. …… I think onii san is cool as a man, too!”

Ichinomiya san shrugged.

“I doubt it.”

“I don’t do naughty things like you imagine!”

“Whaa….I-I don’t imagine anything naughty!”

“Besides, onii san wouldn’t do anything strange to me.

“I don’t know. High school boys have their heads full of naughty things, don’t they?”

Rude. What do you think high school boys are?

No, well, it’s not that I don’t think about such things, or that I’m not interested in them.

Anyway, what Ichinomiya-san said was right on the money. Two high school students, a boy and a girl, living alone together. It’s not a good public image.

Shiho’s mother is also against it,

But I still wanted Shiho to stay at the house. I’m surprised to myself that it’s only been a day, but I think Shiho is a necessary family member for me.

Then, what should I do?

“So it’s okay if we don’t live together?”


“If there is someone adult, or even if not, a third person with her, Ichinomiya-san would feel safe, right?”

“Well, yes, …… but your parents don’t intend to live in this house, do they?”

That’s right.

If that’s the case, we’ll just have to find someone else.

“H-How about I move in with you?”

Ichinomiya-san suggested with a blush on her cheeks.

I was surprised.

“Is that okay? There is a high school boy who only think about erotic things. ……”

“……I apologize for what I said earlier. I don’t think Komaki-kun would really do something like that.”

Ichinomiya-san says with her eyes downcast as she fiddles with her silver hair.

Well, Ichinomiya-san would understand Shiho very well, but isn’t it more unhealthy to have one more high school girl and a high school boy + two high school girls x2?

“Besides, I don’t think Mina’s father and mother would agree with that.”

At Shiho’s words, Ichinomiya-san made an “Ah” face. Unlike me and Shiho, Ichinomiya-san seems to have proper parents.

They would not allow their precious daughter, a high school girl, to live in a foreign house.

If that was the case, I had no choice but to look for someone close to me.

Just then, the intercom rang.

I rushed to answer it.

“Kou-kun! Is this a good time?”

My childhood friend Hazuki was at the front door again.
