First day of high school.
I woke up in the worst mood.
I usually don’t get up early, I can’t …… do it, but this day I woke up very early.
It’s all Kirito’s fault!
I never thought that Kirito, whom I thought of as “family,” would ask me to be his “girlfriend.”
I’ve never seen him as a “man” before.
Because …… I had no choice!
We have been spending time together since we were little and even shared a bath together.
There was no way I could consider him as a member of the opposite gender after all these years.
He was family to me, and I thought that was our common understanding.
To be honest. I thought it was a much deeper relationship than a relationship with a lover.
But he asked me to be his girlfriend.
I thought it was a downgrade.
So I said to him.
“I’ve never seen you as a man, It’s imposible!”（I’ve always thought of you as family, and I can’t have you downgrading me to a lover now!)
Kirito looks surprised. It looks like he got my point across.
“Is that all you have to say?”
I’m not going to say anything that would try to ‘downgrade me to a lover’ at this stage, am I? I ask in the sense that I mean it.
Kirito nodded his head in resignation.
Hmph! It’s all right if you know!
“Well, then I guess I don’t have to talk to you anymore.”
I said and went back to my house.
I went to bed early and went to sleep, ready for the new school year.
And so today arrived. I wash my face and get ready.
I woke up earlier than usual, but I went to bed earlier than usual, so I didn’t lose any sleep. I didn’t feel that sleepy.
In front of the washbasin, I fix the position of my twin-tail hair.
This hairstyle is the one that Kirito says he likes, so I continue to wear it.
I think this haircut is “itty-bitty” for a high school student, but if “my precious family” says so, I can’t help it. I’ve decided to put up with it.
As I finished getting ready, my phone rang.
“Who is it…… at this hour?”
I wondered as I checked my phone.
I checked my phone and saw that
It was my other “precious family member” and “younger sister”, Misuzu.
“What’s the matter, Misuzu? It’s so early in the morning.”
Misuzu, who knows that I am weak in the morning, usually does not call me at this hour. I wondered if something was wrong.
“Hey! Rinne chan! Is it true that you dumped my brother?!”
I took my ear away from my phone because it was so loud.
“…..Your voice is too loud, Misuzu.”
I say to Misuzu, who apologizes.
“Because he turned to me and said, [Be my lover.]”
“….Eh? Is that a no?”
Huh …… I wonder what even Misuzu is saying.
I say as I let out a sigh.
“He’s my ‘precious family member,’ and I don’t like the idea of being downgraded to ‘sweetheart’ after all this time.”
When I said this, Misuzu let out a really big sigh.
“W-What’s with that big sigh ……”
“I thought it would be something like that, but I didn’t really think it was. ……”
Then Misuzu said something I could not believe.
“Onii chan has already left home. Maybe you should go after him.”
We’ve been going to school together since the first grade!
You can’t just suddenly quit on me like that!
“Why is that happening?!!”
“Yeah, it’s …… Rinne chan’s fault, isn’t it?”
“I-it’s my fault ……?”
I don’t understand. Why is it my fault?
“Haa…… if you don’t understand, it can’t be helped. Can’t have both unrequited loves in moderation, can you?’
“See you later, who might have been my future sister-in-law.”
Misuzu said and hung up the phone.
I didn’t understand half of what Misuzu was saying, but I did understand that Kirito left me and went to school.
“You’ve got to be kidding me! I won’t let you get away with this!”
I grab my bag and leave the house without breakfast.
With these words, I walked out the front door, straddled the bicycle parked next to it, and headed off to school.
Kaiho Public High School.
It is a somewhat higher deviation high school, but I decided on this school because it is within biking distance.
I thought I could go to Kirito if he worked hard. I was looking forward to riding my bicycle to school with him, so I decided to go here.
If it was true, we were going to have a good time talking and going to school today, but what is he doing that is so stupid!
Fifteen minutes on the bike.
A large high school came into view.
I didn’t find Kirito during that time, which means he has already arrived at the school.
I won’t allow it! I won’t allow it! I won’t allow it!
I rode my bike to the bike parking lot, and there was his’s familiar mama bike!
I knew you were already in school!!!!
One word…… No, not just one word! I’m going to complain a lot!
I ran to where he was probably headed, where the class assignment papers were posted.
And when I reached my destination, I saw a familiar figure behind it.
There he is! It’s Kirito!
As I was about to run up to him, I saw a woman nearby.
And that woman, as if by chance, hugged my precious family member.
The shocking sight made me drop my bag.
Kirito’s expression was a mixture of a little happiness and awkwardness as he turned around and saying this.
“Wha-wha-wha….. what are you doing ……?”
“……………… Rinne, what are you doing here?”
You look as if you’ve been seen cheating on your wife.
Don’t tell me you came early to meet that woman, Youuu……!
“…… Sakurai kun, who is that person?”
The woman who was hugging Kirito looks at me and asks.
That’s right! Tell that woman!
Tell her that I am Kirito’s ‘precious family’!
But the words that came out of Kirito’s mouth were words I could not believe.
“…..Eh, um. She’s my ‘childhood friend’.”
(TL/N : LMAO, another kind of misunderstandings)
