What does cheating mean?
I have three women that are interested in me.
However, I’m not in a relationship with any of them, and I’m trying to figure out who would be the best person for me to go out with. This is probably not cheating, right? Trying to get to know three people better in order to choose one person should not be strange in the eyes of the public. Yup.
Well, the fact that the people who are interested in me are my sister, my teacher, and my friend’s girlfriend would be a problem, especially if it includes my sister, but that’s another story.
Anyway, I went home safely……inwardly buoyed by the fact that tomorrow I have a date with my teacher.
Then, Saki, who had left earlier, greets me at the door.

“Onii chan, welcome back ! Hey, let’s go out together tomorrow !”
“Ah, sorry. I have some plans tomorrow.”
“Eh? Really? Hmmm. Is that with……Misaka senpai?”
“No, no, it’s with Takuma.”

I had thought of the name of the person I could go out with, in case Saki might ask me to go out with her. I feel bad about revealing Takuma’s name without permission, but the fact that I went out with the teacher is a secret to everyone. I can’t even tell Saki.

[….That’s a lie.]

Why did she find out so quickly? Eh, was I that suspicious? I didn’t behave any differently, did I?

“So, how about the day after tomorrow?”
“Okay. The day after tomorrow.”
“Yay. I have a date with Onii chan.”
“A date…… We’re brother and sister, right? It’s just an outing.”
“It’s okay to call it a date if it’s just an outing.”
“Hmm, that’s up to Saki.”

Even when I go to my room, Saki follows me closely. Lately, Saki has been clinging to me more and more.

[Onii chan isn’t going to hang out with Sakata senpai. Then…is the other person Misaka senpai after all? But it’s weird. If it was Onii chan, there would be no need to hide it from me that he was going to hang out with Misaka senpai…….]

“By the way, Onii chan, you’ve gotten along well with Misaka senpai lately, haven’t you?”
“I don’t know. It’s not that bad, and I’m happy to discuss various things with her.”
“Hmm. Misaka senpai, maybe she wants to break up with Sakata senpai and start dating Onii chan.”
“Haha. That’s not true. She wouldn’t choose a boring guy like me.”

[There is no strange weird pause in Onii chan’s conversation…… However, there is something unnatural about this lack of pause…? Onii chan, you sometimes imagine that maybe Misaka likes you, right? If so, he should show some upset when he is broached the subject like this. It’s as if he had decided beforehand that he would respond this way if such a topic was brought up,……. Am I imagining something? But I somehow feel uncomfortable…..]

My sister is too much of a detective.
What’s with her sharpness? Even though she’s always smiling, is she really sharp on the inside? When I listen to her inner voice, her image changes……

“Hey, Onii chan.”
“What would you do if Misaka senpai broke up with Sakata senpai and said she likes you?”
“That’s impossible–“
“Hypothetically. What would you do if that were to happen?”
“You’re being awfully stubborn today. Well, let’s see……”

What would be a natural answer here, and one that wouldn’t irritate Saki? No, I wonder if thinking like this will actually plant a sense of distrust in Saki’s heart.

“I’m not saying that I don’t want to go out with Misaka san. If she confessed to me, I might be inclined to go out with her.”
“Hmm. Onii chan, I guess you’re aiming for Misaka senpai after all.”

[No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no ! Onii chan is stolen by Misaka senpai ! He’s pretending that it’s impossible, but I’m sure he’s really interested in her ! If she confesses her feelings for him, they’ll start going out right away ! If I don’t make the first move, there’s no taking it back !]

Oh, it’s not good. I’m really provoking Saki.

“It’s not that I’m aiming at Misaka san. Of course, Misaka san is cute and has a good personality, so I’d be happy if I could go out with her. But she’s Takuma’s girlfriend, and it would be awkward for her to go out with me after she broke up with Takuma.”
“Awkward, is that all?”

[It’s not a relationship that will be condemned by everyone in the world for the rest of your life, like dating between siblings……. The awkwardness is only temporary, and gradually you will be accepted…… I’m jealous…..]

“Just awkward you said…… It’s quite a problem.”
“I don’t think it’s much of a problem. Once you graduate from high school or something, no one will care anymore.”
“Well, yeah.”
“If I were Onii chan, I would ignore the temporary awkwardness. If I really liked the girl, that is.”
“That’s true.”
“Tomorrow, will it be just you and Misaka senpai?”
“……No, I’m going to play with Takuma.”
“Ah, that’s right.”

[Tch. Even though I played it naturally, why won’t you say the name……]

If it really was to play with Misaka san, I would have affirmed it in a natural flow. I’m afraid Saki is too much of a great detective…….

“But it will be complicated for Onii chan, too. As for how you will treat Misaka senpai knowing that she wants to break up with Sakata senpai……”
“Well, I guess. But there’s no use thinking about it too much.”
“Well, it’s not really Onii chan’s problem. In the end, the two of them have to solve it together.”

[Well, in the end, who will you meet tomorrow? If it’s not Misaka senpai, then who the heck is she? Where was such an ambush hiding? Ah, is it Azuma senpai from the same club……? But if that’s the case, I don’t see the point in hiding it. Who is this person that you have to hide from me? This…..I’ll have to follow you tomorrow and see what happens. Onii chan is mine !]

Wait, wait. Saki, are you going to follow me tomorrow? If she does that, she’ll find out that I’m meeting with Misaki sensei……. I have a feeling that it would be a big deal if Saki, of all people, finds out…….

[Tomorrow I have to leave the house before Onii chan so that I can follow him wherever he goes. I’ve done this so many times, there’s no way he’ll find out. He won’t even think that he might be being followed by someone, and he won’t even realize that I’m right next to him.]

Something she have done many times, huh……. I had no idea. I really don’t notice it at all……
What should I do to get away from Saki? Is it really possible? I don’t think my mediocre brain can surpass Saki’s scheming……. So tomorrow’s date is canceled……?
In any case, I’ve already arrived at my room, so I’ll change my clothes first.

“…I’m gonna go get change for now, so see you later.”
“Hm? I don’t mind if you take it off in front of me, you know?”
“I don’t think it’s a good idea.”
“Really? I’m sure you don’t mind your sister looking at your underwear. I don’t mind if Onii chan sees mine, though?”
“I’m embarrassed. Saki, even if we’re siblings, you should be a little more conscious of it.”
“Haha. Well, it’s not like I’m not consciously aware…well, that’s fine. see you later”

[It’s not that I’m not aware of it, I want to see you, and I want you to look at me too ! He doesn’t understand…. No way he does.
But if you are embarrassed, it means that you are aware of me, right? If he saw me naked, he would get excited, right? Mmm-hmm. I’m sure he’s aware of me as a girl……. There is always a chance……. When the time comes, I’ll create an established fact and force Onii chan to admit that he’s in love with me ! I’ll make the first move !]

Saki leaves the room and I take a breath.
I’m glad that she likes me, but it’s really tiring.

Just as I’m thinking that, I get a call on my phone.

“Misaka san or……”

Was it an invitation for a date? 
I don’t know, but I picked up the call anyway.

Again passive, he just gives his sister a check, saying either that he’s not interested in her physically or that they’re definitely not going to have a date and he doesn’t like it when she puts it that way. Well, it’s already more than obvious that the author will take this to the end and the MC will not evolve.
