After Riko left, Hikari and I were having dinner together. …….But.
……Hikari,she’s in a bad mood.
Whenever Hikari is in a bad mood, she immediately becomes quiet. Even now, no matter what topic I bring up, she’s still not talking much, so she’s definitely in a bad mood. This is a conviction that comes from having been a big brother for many years.
“……Hikari, can you please fix your mood?”
“………..Do you know what went wrong?”
Scary. I’m so terrified.
“That I stroked Riko’s head?”
Of course. After that, she was clearly in a bad mood.
“I’m really sorry.”
“………Onii chan always do something like that right away. From when Maki chan was little, and now for Riko chan. Are you doing that to other girls anyway? That’s how you enjoy playing with women’s hearts, isn’t it?”
“No, you’re wrong. Actually, I’ve never done something like that.”
Even though I try my best to deny it, Hikari is staring at me with a blank stare. …..It’s not good, not a single word of my word is trusted.
“Recently, you’ve never done something like that to Maki chan, so I thought it was my privilege. I was really happy.”
“…….Sorry, I did. I patted Maki in the classroom.”
I noticed that Hikari’s expression, which had been soft until now, suddenly became stiff.
“Are you doing this because you want me to be jealous? If that’s the case, your plan is a great success. I’m going crazy with jealousy.
“……I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it that way, but if Hikari was having a hard time, it was my fault.”
……I really am not a good older brother. Looking at Hikari’s expression distorted with sadness, I couldn’t help but think so.
“…….I’m sorry. I know it’s a pain.”
I was extremely confused when Hikari suddenly started saying something I didn’t understand.
“I’m sorry. I’m such a troublesome girl. Of course it would be troublesome if your younger sister is a jealous type. But I don’t want you to hate me. I love Onii chan too much. I love you as a brother and as a man. Both to the fullest. My insides are full of love for Onii chan. That’s why……I get jealous.”
I knew that Hikari was in a very unstable state of mind, I reconfirmed.
Before Riko comes, she becomes hysterical, and after Riko leaves, she apologizes whenever she thinks he’s angry. It is hard to say that she is mentally stable.
I’ve thought about it many times, but Hikari…..probably feels an abnormal fear of being [abandoned] or [hated] by me, as does Maki. No matter how many times I told them, [I won’t throw them away] or [I won’t hate you] they would never be freed from this fear.
Perhaps it is this fear that makes her unstable, like Maki’s sudden attempt to attack Sari Nee chan with a kitchen knife, or Hikari’s hysterical outbursts.
This is all speculation on my part, but I’m sure I’m not far off the mark.
Then there is only one solution.
The only solution is to tell them how I feel, over and over again, until they feel secure.
“Hikaru, I love you.”
Hikari’s face turned bright red and she flustered.
“As for romantic feelings…I’m sorry, I don’t know yet. But at least as a younger sister, I love Hikari so much not just to the fullest, but overflowing. I’m really happy to have such a younger sister.”
“What are you saying all of a sudden……..but…I’m so happy.”
Hikari looked shy as he cringed, trying to hide her embarrassment.
After confirming that Hikari has taken a bath, I make a phone call.
This is to avoid causing any misunderstanding.
I don’t know what would happen if Hikari found out I was talking on the phone with a girl.
“Maki, is this a good time?”
“Well, I have something to tell you.”
It’s true that this way of talking could be misunderstood.
“No, it’s not.”
“What? Well, just say it.”
Maybe it’s because we’re childhood friends, but the tempo of our phone calls is so fast.
“No, well…Maki told me before that she can’t live without me.”
“Y-yeah……it’s a little embarrassing, but.”
“I feel the same way. Well, it’s a bit of an understatement to say that I can’t live, but when I think about the future, I can’t imagine my relationship with Maki being severed, and I don’t want to think about it.”
“What I’m trying to say is that……I really care about Maki too.”
“S-stop it, you suddenly…..I’m so embarrassed……….”
“Sorry. I suddenly wanted to tell you, you know.”
“Thank you,……I have something to tell you, too.”
“Oh, go ahead and say it.”
Over the phone, I heard Maki take a deep breath.
“I love you so much !”
Just after I heard that, the phone went dead.
………Damn……I’m the one who’s embarrassed.
