“Come to think of it, you don’t need a drink, Yuuto Nii? I’ll treat you since you’re taking care of me during the break, okay?”

“No……I’ll be fine. Yeah.”

The two sat down at an empty seat and immediately began talking.

Miyu listened with upturned eyes while drinking matcha au lait topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup.


“Hahaha. That’s it. Like the staff said, you’re already full after being treated by the regulars.”


Yuuto involuntarily raises his tone and denies Miyu’s statement as she pulls her mouth away from the straw.

At this time, if his tone of voice had not changed, there would have been no suspicion.

“Can I push your belly then?”


“I knew it.”


“Can I press it then?”

“Y-you can’t.”

“I’m gonna push it seriously, okay?”

“I’m sorry.”

Yuto, who specializes in endurance, is completely defeated by Miyu, who pushes him with even more firepower.

He was the first one who admitted defeat.

“I don’t know what on earth you’ve done to be treated with so many drinks……. As your little sister, I’m somewhat proud of you. That means you’re so skillful.”

“Ahaha, thank you.”

“By the way, have you ever taken a break with one of the regulars?”

“No, I don’t think so. I mean, I’ve only talked with them when I’m serving them.”

“Hmm. So I’m the first person you’ve ever done this with during a break?”


I’m the first. The moment she heard that, Miyo struck a gut-pose in her mind.

“Nihihi, then if one of the regulars sees something like this, they’ll be jealous, right? I’m sorry if Yuuto Nii gets treated less.”

“Eh? I don’t think it has anything to do with this….. They always said things like [Thank you for always working hard] when they treated me.”

“……Well, you think that’s the real eason?”

“I-I guess so……is it not? Miyu san, you also called out to me saying [Wanna use this seat?] because you saw me working hard, right?”

While adding [It’s not something I say myself] she said with a blank face.

The corners of her mouth involuntarily twitched with that expression.

“You know….I don’t care if you get back stabbed someday, okay? Seriously.”

“Eh? Back stabbed !?”


“No,……as expected, it should be fine,…….”

Miyui understood completely from this reaction.

The reason why Yuuto himself was saying that he is not popular.

It’s not that he didn’t notice his appeal. He was just swallowing what he was told.

All three sisters wondered.

[Why are you saying you’re not popular?] The moment the mystery was finally solved, Yuuto changed the subject in an easy-to-understand way.

“……Well, Miyu san. Are you sure you don’t have to study today? I’m free right now.”

“Thanks for saying that. It’s definitely better to study, but it’s a waste.”

“A waste?”

“Yeah. I didn’t know Yuto Nii at that time, but now that I know who he really is, I want to spend time talking like this.”

“Fufu. Thank you for saying that.”

“You’re welcome.”

When Yuuto smiles, you can see his two sharp teeth.

That plus a gentle expression is not fair…….

Miyu doesn’t have that kind of memory in her mind, but she likes his smile.

“Just to be clear, I have been studying in the study room. While you’re working part-time.”

“You’re amazing, Miyu san. You’re more strict with yourself than anyone else.”

“I-it’s only natural if you were in my position…..”

He said something that touched her heart with a lot of emotion.

She can’t compete with her (step) brother.

“Frankly, it’s a miracle that I got into this university with my academic ability, you know?”

“I don’t think so……”

No, no, it’s true. When I took the entrance exam, my face was really pale. Heck, I got a non-slip, but Mashiro Nee and Kokono got in with one try, you know?”

“Eh !? That’s amazing…”

In other words, they were confident that they would pass.

In fact, it was Mashiro who understood the content of the lecture when she was attending it, and even took time out to prepare for it.

The fact that Kokono took the same action as such an eldest daughter means that she is capable of doing so.

“Seriously, those two are monsters. Since we’re triplets, shouldn’t I be just as smart as them? I’ve thought that many times.”

“……But aren’t you just as amazing as them, Miyu san? I think you’re the most amazing one.


Yuuto wasn’t as good at academics as those two. He is one of those who studied to death to enroll in this university.

“W-what are you talking about….. I’m the most ordinary.”

“Hmm. Certainly, if you look at only one point, you can say that, but even if you feel the difference between the two of them, don’t get discouraged, you were able to pass the university you’re in now because you put extra effort behind the scenes.”


“And even after you got into college, you didn’t let up on that feeling, did you? If you include that, it’s even more amazing.”

“……I-I wonder if that’s true.”

Why does it warm my heart so much? The reason for this is that you can feel that he is speaking from the heart.


“T-then, I’ll accept your honesty……. I’m happy.”

Miyu doesn’t study to be praised.

Shejust studying on her own to keep up with her classes at campus, but she is weak when it comes to receiving recognition for her hard work.

Just like she said, she is working behind the scenes.

(I guess this is the kind of thing that attracts people. I guess the reason why the regulars treat him is because he encouraged them. He probably doesn’t even realize it.)

The more the two of them interact with each other, the more they understand each other. The charms of adults.

“…… B-but, Yuuto Nii.”


“You’re a little too affectionate.”


With her chin resting on her hand, Miyu secretly took off her shoes and tapped him with her foot.

“I-I’m not affectionate, okay? I was just being honest and saying what I thought……”

“That’s what being affectionate is.”

She hit Yuuto in the leg to make him understand.

“Don’t say that kind of thing to Kokono, okay? She’s the easiest.”

“I don’t think we should have a conversation like this in the first place…”

“I don’t know about that. We’re talking about you, Yuuto Nii.”

She didn’t stop hitting his leg because it seems like she is doing it unconsciously.

It wasn’t until the end of this story.

“Ah, that’s right ! I forgot to tell you. Can you stay here until 9:00 p.m. today, Miyu san?”


“Minoru has agreed to leave early today, and his part-time job ends at 9:00 p.m. So I was wondering if we could go home together.”

“……Hey, can you please stop trying to make me happy?”

“Ahaha. I mean, can you stop hitting me with your legs !? It makes me nervous…….”

Miyu is always wondering when Yuuto will notice it.

“Don’t wanna.”

The second daughter caught Yuuto’s legs with both feet, as if to put her current feelings into action.
