Aoba’s eyes widened with amazement.
The scene before her eyes was too unexpected because it was so unusual. As if there was a screen, the feeling was similar to wearing 3D glasses in a movie theater.
She was nothing more than a mere high school girl. To her, it was the type of superhuman battle that could only be seen in manga or movies.
The white-haired, goth-loli girl was even better. Although it was her first time seeing such a person, she had…this atmosphere around her.
However, even Taiyou could not grasp the superhuman movements.
「How can they move so fast? How did that punch make a “buuooon” sound? 」
As far as Aoba was concerned, Natsuno Taiyou was a cheating man until now, a mere classmate.
A quibbler who liked games and an ordinary boy who didn’t stand out in class. That was the image of the boy called Taiyou.
She saw a guy like that challenging Shirokiyami, although she really had never heard of such a superhuman battle (or anything such as that…….)
Each time he closed in on Shirokiyami while appearing to swing his fist, a strange feeling welled up within her heart. A vague yet strangely exciting feeling rose in her chest.
As she was surmising about what was happening, Taiyou took a barrage of blows from the sheath of the sword, and admitted defeat.
That’s when she headed towards there.
「What’s wrong Miyagi, why do you have such a face? Ah, were you astonished that such an event started suddenly?」
It wasn’t just that but that also was it.
For the time-being, Aoba vaguely nodded and turned towards Shirokiyami.
「Nice to meet you, I’m Miyagi Aoba. You?」
She held out her hand for a handshake as she asked for her name.
「Nice to…meet you」
Shirokiyami returned the handshake, however she did not give her name.
Aoba reluctantly began a different conversation because there was no sign that Shirokiyami was going to speak while shaking hands.
「um…are you in Natsuno-kun’s harem?」
「it’s arranged, however……undecided」
Despite wondering about what that probably meant, she asked more questions.
「Do you like Natsuno-kun?」
An immediate reply was returned following this response.
「Is that so!?」
「Why are you surprised Natsuno-kun?」
「No, it just seemed like there was no way… that could be…」
Taiyou said, while gazing at Shirokiyami with eyes full of anticipation.
「yes, defeat me…quick…ly」
「Ah, I surely will defeat you!」
Shirokiyami nodded. Aoba was not understanding the relationship between those two more and more. Afterwards, various things were discussed, but it only resulted in Aoba becoming more aware of her mysteriousness.
「Is that so?」
Suddenly, Taiyou clapped his hands together as if he remembered something.
「I was going to forget to hand this to you!」
He then held out a rectangular item that was wrapped in a white cloth to Shirokiyami.
Aoba thought it was something similar to a candy box.
「I’m returning some of it because I’ve become more successful」
「Including giving that to you, I also wanted to have a discussion this time, about how to increase more of this.」
Shirokiyami nods, showing that she understood.
「Then, I recommended…..FX」1
「If I do that, I’ll lose all the money!」
Taiyou raised his voice.
「I didn’t know you knew about stuff like that. I was thinking more along the lines of how I can be more powerful like you」
「….Are you sure?」
Shirokiyami said while squinting at Taiyou.
In that moment, Aoba felt a chill run down her back, however she did not show it.
Both of them communicated similarly by nodding to each other.
Aoba had a strange feeling while watching two people like them.
Parting with Shirokiyami, Aoba and Taiyou returned so that the three sisters could prepare breakfast. All of the residents of this house, including Yurikago and Aoba, had stayed at Taiyou’s Castle last night. It seemed somewhat like a small dinner party comprising of seven people.
Since the three sisters; Aoba, and Taiyou were going to school afterwards, they were dressed in their uniforms; while Kohaku and Yurikago dressed in plain clothes.
Taiyou and his wives sat beside each other while the two guests, Aoba and Yurikago were sitting horizontally.
「Is that so? You immediately challenged her jyana?」
「Indeed, however, I wasn’t really a match for her. On the contrary, I must admit that she went easy on me.」
「Are you ok Taiyou-san?」
「Did you get hurt when you were fighting her?」
「She was using a sword wasn’t she?」
「Yes, but it’s ok, it’s healing. I’m being treated like a child, so it’s probably ok not to worry.」
「If you chase after her, even you could receive an injury jyarona」
「That’s how it was. Furthermore, her speed seemed to have raised as well, according to her. It’s a difficult situation; therefore, I want to raise my speed a bit also.」
Taiyou continued telling the girls about Shirokiyami, while eating the breakfast that the three sisters made.
「What’s wrong? Why do you have that facial expression?」
Yurikago asked Aoba on the side. Until now, the two had little involvement. Yurikago kept quiet but Aoba was surprised and confused.
「No, it’s nothing.」
「You were staring at him so hungrily? What, did you fall for him?」
Aoba’s face turned red as she objected frantically.
「That’s not it! I just think that Natsuno-kun and the others are just strange」
Taiyou’s ears reacted to her words. The three sisters and Kohaku stared at Aoba similarly.
「Yes, the woman who I met a while ago who talks funny. 」
「It was strange wasn’t it」
Taiyou was not surprised. He realized that it was natural that she would be surprised.
It was certainly understandable following last night’s conversation. He also understood the thing that Aoba was most concerned about.
Up to now, he was not the type of person to purposely flaunt anything. At least, concerning this, he was trying to keep the talk about the other wife candidate a secret.
Regardless, the three sisters had an extremely happy face.
How happy a face did they have? It was the same happy face they had when they did the「have a good day kiss」, since they started living together.
Taiyou more actively pursued a harem and because he desired a harmonious one with the girls, he liked a story like that.
If it happened; he could then say he loved the girls with pride, and naturally talk about such things with a happy face.
If he did it like that, for the time being, Aoba only reacted to what he said.
「Do you want to speak happily as well?」
Yurikago said teasingly and made a face as if saying「I know everything」.
Aoba’s face became bright-red like a crab boiled instantly.
「It’s not that!」
Yurikago was grinning more and more. Aoba could not endure it any longer and suddenly stood up.
「Thanks for the meal!」
She was angrily returning to her room when she passed in front of Taiyou and glanced towards him. She was concerned about what kind of face Taiyou was making. That led to an accident. While frantically pretending to not look, she became negligent of her feet.
Her foot tripped over something and she fell towards Taiyou. Taiyou tried to catch her but his reaction was too late. He held out his arms but her body slipped through right towards Taiyou. She crashed into him with her all of body weight and Taiyou’s vision became pitch black.
An amused Kohaku’s voice was heard. At the same time, there was a familiar sensation….. The feeling of lips and a slightly sweet fragrance accompanied by a soft touch. When the weight lifted, he opened his eyes. That’s when Taiyou could see Aoba holding her lips.
『No way… 』 he thought as he traced his lips with his finger. The look on Aoba’s face became more and more embarrassed. 『This… I kissed her…』As he was thinking that.
「Taiyou-chan! I’m home nanodesu!」
Did she do it purposefully? As Taiyou was thinking about the extent of the timing, Hera’s figure appeared. 2
