Chapter 22 – Coming Over to the House of the Girl I Like.
It certainly was a bolt from the blue.1[It certainly came as a surprise.]
Not only Naoya, but Koyuki as well, absentmindedly stared in wonder.
In front of them, Sakuya, without a care in the world, continued with her usual poker face and monotone voice.
“Despite how I look, I’m actually pretty good at making sweets, you know? So, if you ever come and visit our house, I’ll treat you. After that, you’re free to flirt with my onee-chan however you want.”
“Uh, well… It’s a tempting offer, but..”
Naoya could only shrink back. The offer may appear so appealing that one would feel compelled to take it right away; there is, however, a big problem that comes along with it.
“What about you, Shirogane-san…?”
“Is it alright if I come over to your house…?”
Coming over to the house of the girl I like.. Man, this certainly feels like some kind of event that no matter how many hearts I have, it still won’t be enough.2[心臓がいくつあっても足りないイベントだ。I don’t know, bro. Seems like a reference or something that I have no clue of. Just take this with a grain of salt.]
In that case, Koyuki must also feel happy with this event, no?
And as expected, Koyuki’s face had turned red. She was shyly looking downwards then asked a question in a mutter.
“Y-you.. won’t do a-anything p-perverted…?”
At Naoya’s immediate reply, Koyuki frankly patted her chest in relief.
The last time both of them were alone together, they grew strangely over conscious with each other. With that in mind, Naoya turned to face her again and grandly stated as such;
“I’m the type of guy who tells the girl I like how much I’m attracted towards her openly and without reservation, but I’m also the type who prefers to do things at our own pace.”
“Yeah. I promise you I won’t do things that will make you hate me.”
But, of course, as a healthy young high school boy, I also have a natural desire to do all sorts of things with the girl I like. However, I’m not the type of guy who would make a move on her without first checking to see if she consents. I like her, which is why I must treasure her, naturally.
Sakuya, on the other hand, went “Eh..?” and pouted with dissatisfaction.
“Why don’t you just be more aggressive with such things instead of acting like some kind of gentleman? Putting on airs won’t do you any good this late in the game.”3[「そういうのも含めて、もっとグイグイいけばいいのに。いまさら草食系を気取らないで欲しい」As usual, take it with a grain of salt.]
“What kind of reaction is that? Wasn’t it you who told Shirogane-san something like ‘Don’t ever let yourself be alone together with a man!’, Sakuya-chan?”
“Of course, I did say that.”
Sakuya, a blank expression plastered on her face, replied, nodding her head in agreement.
“However, I wasn’t telling you to do that when it’s just the two of you alone together, instead, do it when I’m present. After all, I want to burn the image of my embarrassed onee-chan in my mind.”
“Wha–!? That’s what you meant!? I certainly won’t ever engage in such a high-level play, ‘ya hear me?”
“No way… I just wanted to witness the perverted side of my favorite couple4[推しカプのスケベ(Oshi kapu no sukebe) — Which I think means ‘Favorite Couple’s Pervertedness.’ I might be wrong though, but it kind of means like that.]…”
Sakuya said such wicked thoughts in a dejectedly cute manner.
On the other hand, Koyuki was repeating the words “Oshi kapu no sukebe…?” while slightly tilting her head. She didn’t seem to understand what the words mean, so Naoya was relieved.
After a short while, Koyuki suddenly coughed, clearing her throat, and returned to the subject at hand.
“Uhmm… If you will really keep that promise of yours, then you can come over as you like..”
As Naoya was granted permission, he timidly and stiffly bowed down his head.
And this is how Naoya’s first ever important mission in his life; to be able to come over to the house of the girl he likes, had occured.
Shirogane-san’s house, huh… This really makes me nervous… I wonder if she’ll let me go inside her room…
I was really curious if there were any cute stuffed animals sprawled everywhere or if her room smelled nice. And since I have not yet experienced this kind of situation before, I was so nervous that my heart was about to leap out of my chest.
“Then, how about on Saturday? Onee-chan, help me make the sweets, okay?”
“I guess I have no choice. I have to tell mom about this, too. Ah…”
Both sisters were discussing with each other about what to do, however, Koyuki abruptly fell into silence.
And then, with a sour expression suddenly forming on her face, she said—
“Papa… might be home this weekend…”
