ther words, I was being monitored the entire time I was in school.

Wherever I went in the school, whenever I tried to talk to Rika, I could feel Kiyokawa's eyes on me.

Recently, even when I'm in the boy's lavatory room, I can feel Kiyokawa's presence.

I feel like I'm going crazy.


“That's beyond the realm of a stalker.
It's a torture.
It's really a torture.” (Kazuto)

“Isn't she just like Rinka?” (Kasumi)

“Rinka is acting out of goodwill.
And she would never do anything that I really dislike.” (Kazuto)


But Kiyokawa is different.
She might be trying to destroy me.

Because from Kiyokawa's point of view, I'm nothing more than an obstacle.

I have deprived the senior whom she respected, and have put Star☆Mines' activity at serious risk……

The most important problem is that the relation of Rinka and I were almost exposed to other students several times.

I can understand why Kiyokawa is worried enough to consider monitoring us.


“……I can understand how Kiyokawa feels.” (Kazuto)


I wish she will loosen up on the monitoring toward us just a bit more.

The stress is building up at a Mach pace.

Of course, we understand that our rash actions have resulted in this.
But still, I can't come to convince myself.


“Okay, okay.” (Kasumi)

Kasumi-san?” (Kazuto


For some reason, she gently pats my head.
The soft-touch is comforting.

When I turn my gaze to Kasumi-san, who is sitting next to me, she has a warm, maternal smile on her face.


“That's great, Kazuto-kun.
Even though you're suffering, but you're also thinking about the other person's situation.” (Kasumi)

“If you put yourself in Kiyokawa's shoes, you'll understand it.
I think my presence is endangering Star☆Mines.” (Kazuto)

“That's the great point about you, Kazuto-kun.
Ordinary boys will only think about themselves.” (Kasumi)


She strokes my head while saying that.
It's surprisingly pleasant and troubling at the same time.


“……Are you encouraging me by any chance?” (Kazuto)

'Coz my cute little brother is having a hard time…….
Ah, do you want me to give you a hug?” (Kasumi)

“No, thank you.” (Kazuto)

“You don't have to be shy.
It's a lil bro's duty to be pampered by big sis, you know?” (Kasumi)

“It's only if we're related by blood, right?” (Kazuto)

“Blood has nothing to do with family ties! Take this~!” (Kasumi)

“Hey――――” (Kazuto)


She strokes my head vigorously in a circular motion.
I can feel my hair getting messy and rough.

But I don't feel like resisting and just surrendering myself.

Eventually, Kasumi-san stops her stroking and speaks to me in a calm voice.


“Well, you don't have to worry so much about it.
It's not like she's trying to break you two up.
And I'm sure Ayane-chan will get tired of it soon.” (Kasumi)

“I, hope so.” (Kazuto)

If you take your relationship with Rinka carefully, then Ayane-chan will be convinced, you'll just have to be patient for now.” (Kasumi)

I understand.” (Kazuto)


I'm convinced by the gentle voice of Kasumi-san.

Strangely, I feel calm.
Is this the receptive power of an older person?


“Do you want me to talk to her?” (Kasumi)

“No, thank you.
That'll be embarrassing.” (Kazuto)


It'll be a little shameful for a man to rely on his girlfriend's sister to solve the problem.

When I firmly refuse, Kasumi-san mutters, “I wish my lil bro could be more dependent on me”.

I wonder if she wants a younger brother as well, since she only has younger sisters.

As I'm thinking about this, I hear the sound of the door opening from the entrance.


“Ah, Rinka-sis is baack!” (Nonoa)


Nonoa-chan immediately stops drawing and runs to the entrance with cute steps.

I casually glance at the picture left on the table.
It's a child's drawing, so it looks messy but cute at the same time.

The setting is a church wedding, probably.
There's a man who looks like me and a girl who looks like Nonoa-chan are wearing wedding clothes and facing each other in front of a priest.


I'm not going to say anything.
Well, it's a kid's drawing.
It's wrong for me to say anything.


“Help me, Kazuto-bro!” (Nonoa)

“Whoaaa!” (Kazuto)


Nonoa-chan, who's supposed to be heading for the entrance, comes back at a great speed and jumps into my chest.


“Wh-what's wrong?” (Kazuto)

“Nana-sis and……
A-Ayane-sis is here!” (Nonoa)


Nonoa-chan pleads to me while being so frightened.

No matter how I look at, she's frightened of Ayane-sis……no, of Kiyokawa.
