“I knew it had potato salad.”

“A-ahaha……. I can eat a lot thanks to Kokono san.”

The two of them put the food they ordered on their trays and sat down at an empty table.

It was Yuuto who immediately put a retort to the third daughter, and they ate each other of their food.

“Ah, I forgot to tell you. Is it really okay for you to treat me? Even now, I can still….”

“I’m totally fine with it. I have a little bit of money to spare.”

“Okay, if you say so…..but you also have a part-time job, don’t you, Kokono san?”



Come to think of it, I hadn’t heard anything about this kind of thing at all. When I asked a question out of curiosity, her response was unexpectedly silent.

She blinked repeatedly at this unexpected turn of events, and she answered, although she seemed reluctant to say so.

“E-erm….. I can’t give you too many details, but I do have a job, so I have enough money.”


It doesn’t end with that.

[What kind of work do you do?] I was about to expand the conversation when I heard the following words.

“…..The udon noodles are delicious.”

Kokono, not wanting the conversation to be continued, blatantly veers away from the topic.

While blowing the udon noodles with her mouth, she seems somewhat restless.

“Hahaha, you don’t want to be asked too much?”

“Yeah…… I’m embarrassed.”

“I see. Then I won’t ask.”

“T-thank you. …….”

“No, no.”

To be honest, I’m extremely curious about it, but I don’t like to force her to say what she doesn’t want to say.

While thinking that her nodding apologetically was cute, I connected to the topic that she had just waved at me.

“The cafeteria food is delicious, isn’t it?”

“It’s so good……. I’m glad I came today.”

“Seriously !? If you say so, I’m glad I invited you here. As promised, let’s come together again.”


“Of course.”

Unlike the eldest daughter, Mashiro and the second daughter, Miyu, Kokono has a quiet personality with few words, but Yuuto, who also likes the personality of the third daughter, is still able to have fun.

“Ah,, I’m gonna change the subject….there’s something that surprised me a little.”

“Surprised you?”

“From the looks of it, there are a lot of people who come to the school cafeteria by themselves. It’s so different from when I was in high school.”

“Oh, that’s for sure.”

High school students are in a particularly sensitive period,and it is a place where group life is important.

It is something they don’t have to worry about, but even just being alone can make them feel uncomfortable about their surroundings.

“I think that has a lot to do with the fact that when you’re a college student, you’re basically on your own. Also, mentally, you become more mature.”

“Compared to high school, it seems easier to spend time alone.”

“Yeah, yeah. If you feel that way, then you can use the cafeteria by yourself if you need to, right?”


“Hahaha, what do you mean?”

He put a retort to Kokono’s words, who said it with an unbelievably serious face.

“As expected, you worried about the surroundings?”

“It’s a little bit discouraging…… You’d keep it a secret from Mashiro Onee chan and Miyu Onee chan, right……?”

“I will.”

It seems that because the fact that they were together in high school, as the third daughter said, [Shhh] and brought her index finger closer to her mouth.

What is interesting is that her expression has not changed at all.

She was expressionless, but he could tell that the reason was because she was embarrassed.

It was precisely because Yuuto could sense her feelings that he asked her something like this.

“By the way, what period do you have lectures until today?”

“Until fourth period today.”

“What about Mashiro san and Miyu san?”

“Mashiro Onee chan has 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th periods, and Miyu Onee chan has 2nd period, so I think she’s already gone home.”

“That means……are you planning to go home alone?

She nodded.

Yuuto was able to ask everything he wanted to ask.

“Hey, if you don’t mind, would you like to go home with me today?”


“I have until the third period, but I was planning to ask the teacher about something I don’t understand, and I don’t have a part-time job today.”

“I-is it okay? If you say that, I won’t hold back….you know?”

Kokono lowered her chopsticks in her hand and tilted her head upwards. Yuuto smile and nod his head.

“Well then–“

Just as he was about to wrap up the conversation.

With bad timing, he heard an ill-timed buzzing sound in his ears.

It was a ringtone in silent mode, and the phone that picked up the call was the pink phone that Kokono had placed on the table.

“Ah……. Is it okay if I answer the phone? It’s from Miyu Onee chan.”

“Ahaha, of course it’s okay.”

After putting in a polite word, the third daughter pressed the answer button and put the phone to her ear.

“What’s wrong? Miyu Onee chan.”

[Kokono ! My friend told me that you’re with your Yuuto Nii right now–]


She took her ear off the phone and silently hung up the phone.

“Eh? I-isn’t it too fast?”

“……Let’s go home together today, Yuuto Onii chan.”

“Ah, y-yeah……. I’ll call you at the end of your fourth period.”

“Thank you.”

I wonder if it is just my imagination that she wants to go home with me so badly.

At this time, Kokono was overtaken by her desire to monopolize.
