“But there’s still time before dinner, isn’t there?”

“I guess so. The first day at the new school must be tiring for you, so please take your time.”

“Y-Yes! Thank you very much.”

But Shiho just stands there.

…… what’s going on?

Shiho looked me up and down.

And then she looks embarrassed.

“What do you want me to do…..?”

“Uumm…….”

If it were me, there are plenty of ways to pass the time. My hobbies include reading mystery novels, watching YouTube, and even doing some muscle training. Also, smartphone games and anime…

But Shiho couldn’t seem to come up with anything.

I glanced at the TV in the corner of the room.

There was a home video game console on it. It’s something that comes in handy sometimes when friends come over.

“Do you want to play a game?”

“A game with onii san!? I’ll do it, I’ll do it!”

Shiho’s eyes sparkle.

She is very enthusiastic ……!

 

The two of us sat down side by side on the sofa in front of the TV.

We’re somewhat close ……. The sweet smell of Shiho made my heart pound.

After all, I am aware of Shiho not as a younger sister, but as an idol, and as the opposite sex.

Shiho didn’t seem to notice this, and happily grabbed the controller.

Then, Shiho tilted her head.

“How am I supposed to use this thing?”

She hadn’t played many games. I started up a simple fighting game and explained the controls to Shiho.

Shiho was listening with interest.

“Umm, this….how do I …… do this, onii san?”

“Uh, that’s right.”

I tried to press the button on the controller for Shiho.

At that moment, however, my finger touches Shiho’s hand.

“Ah, …….”

Shiho looked at me as if she was embarrassed.

I pulled my hand back in a hurry.

“I-I’m sorry. ……”

“Why are you apologizing?”

“Because ……”

“I didn’t mind at all.”

Shiho giggles, but her face is red.

“This is …… slowly, isn’t it?”

And then Shiho murmured.

“I was always working hard before I quit being an idol. My schedule was so full with filming and practicing that I never had time to relax.”

“I see. So you didn’t have any free time.”

“My mom told me to always think about performing, and in my free time, I would study because I would be behind in my schoolwork that I missed. ……”

Shiho’s eyes are downcast. I think she must have had a tough life.

I couldn’t help but reach out and touch Shiho’s red hair next to me. And then gently stroke her hair.

Shiho looks up at me with a startled expression.

“Onii san ……?”

“Shiho is great. She’s a hard worker and does her idol activities and studies well.”

“I-I don’t think so,…….”

“Our school is a prestigious school, so the transfer exam must be quite difficult. I think it’s amazing that you were able to pass it.”

Even for athletes and entertainers, our school is unforgiving. It’s a super-preparatory school, so they won’t let you transfer if you don’t pass the exam.

Of course, if all you have to do is study, passing the transfer exam may not be such a big deal.

I also passed the junior high school entrance exam at my school.

But it must be no small feat to balance a busy idol career with studying.

Shiho laughs at the praise.

“It’s the first time …… I’ve ever been complimented on anything other than my idol like that.”

“That’s not true, is it?”

“No, everyone only sees me as ‘the center of Etoile Sandrillon”

Shiho said sadly.

That may be true. When I first met Shiho, I saw her as a “famous idol”.

But now…

“Then, from now on, I’ll look at Shiho as my little sister.”

“Eh?”

“I may be an unreliable older brother, but I will take good care of Shiho, even though she’s not an idol.”

I said that.

I was embarrassed, but I felt it was necessary to say these words.

Shiho looked like she was about to cry, but she smiled happily.

“Thank you very much. I’m glad to be your sister after all.”
