When we walked out the front door of the apartment, the winter sky was clear and cloudless.
Rei-san mumbled happily and stretched wide.
Rei-san had changed into her casual clothes for going out and was wearing a white turtleneck sweater on top with a pleated skirt.
Perhaps noticing my gaze, Rei-san giggled.
“Haruto-kun,… you were looking at my b*easts with er*tic eyes just now, weren’t you?””
Rei-san stretched deliberately again, as if amused.
I blush involuntarily.
Wearing a turtleneck, the soft fullness of Rei’s b*easts was inevitably noticeable.
When she crossed her arms behind her back and turned her back away from me, the lines of her body were emphasized even more.
Rei-san said in a light tone, her blue eyes shining mischievously.
Then she lowered her hand, gently approached me, put her mouth close to my ear, and whispered.
“We even took a bath together, so there’s no need to be shy now.”
“I don’t think it’s that kind of problem… Besides, I don’t think Rei-san would like to be looked at in a strange way.”
“Uh-huh. Others might not like it, but I’m totally fine with Haruto-kun. It’s a little embarrassing, but…”
“Look. After all, Rei-san is embarrassed, aren’t you?”
“I am happy to know that you are aware of me as a girl. So you can clearly tell me that you were looking at my b*easts, okay?”
Rei-chan looked at me with an upward glance.
When they look at me with such genuine eyes, I feel guilty about lying.
In the end, I honestly confessed, “I’m sorry. I was looking.”
Rei-san murmured, “I see.” and smiled beautifully.
“Then I’ll dress more boldly next time we go out.”
“No, just like today. You are already cute enough.”
“Cute enough? Really?”
“There’s no reason to lie.”
If you ask ten people, all ten would say that Rei-san is a beautiful girl.
Rei-san has always been a famous beauty, so much so that she is called a goddess at school.
She was also very enthusiastic about her outfit today, and seemed to be taking great care of her appearance.
“Because Haruto-kun asked me out on a date.”
Rei said shyly, her cheeks tinted with embarrassment.
Rei-san is so happy to go on a date with me, and she cares so much about me.
Then, I should live up to her expectations.
“Then, let’s go.”
Rei nodded vigorously.
This time, we would be able to go to the aquarium we wanted.
Kaho looked frustrated, saying, “It’s not fair just for Mikoto-san”, but she finally agreed with me that it had been a promise we had made before.
Amane-nee-san smirked at me and said, “Good luck”, and rather aggressively tried to get us to go out.
As I started to go down the apartment stairs, Rei-san stopped me.
“What’s wrong? Rei-san?”
“Um… I want you to hold my hand.”
“Not a no, but it’s a long way until we get to the aquarium…”
“I can’t stand it. I want to hold hands all the way to the aquarium.”
When she said that, Rei-san took my hand and intertwined her white fingers with it in a sweet way.
I could feel Rei-san’s warmth directly on my hand.
Will we just go to the station and get on the train?
It’s a little embarrassing, but if Rei-san is happy with that, it’s no problem at all.
Besides, it was nice for me to be spoiled by Rei-san like this.
I nodded my head and she nodded hers.
We walked down the stairs.
We were going to the next town over, just the two of us.
“I’m really looking forward to it.”
Rei-san said in a bouncy voice.
I felt the same way.
When we got down to the ground floor, I saw a figure.
Thinking it might be a resident of the lower floor, I tried to pass by without paying attention.
But when I looked closer, there was a girl with a coat on.
Underneath the coat, she was wearing a green blazer.
The uniform was that of the girls’ middle school across the river.
Both Rei-san and I stopped and froze.
The girl brushed off her beautiful straight black hair and looked at us.
“You seem to be on good terms with him. After I warned you so much, does my sister still have lingering feelings for this man?”
The girl smiled with a mysterious atmosphere on her neat face similar to Rei-san’s.
It was a wonderful expression that would attract anyone’s attention.
However, her big black eyes were laced with hatred toward us, though faintly.
She was Rei-san’s half-sister, Kotone Tomi.
