Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai:Volume 4 Chapter 2
 Chapter 2
Guys, what do you know about the "emergency escape button?"
As its name says, upon using it, the screen will immediately return to its normal appearance.
Of course, this is a function only found in erotic games.
When I got the particular game manual from Kirino and found out about the button, my eyes widened in shock.
For a high school boy who is playing these erotic games inside of an unlocked room, this function is extremely useful.
For example, just now, I’m playing one such game when my mom suddenly opens the door.
“Kyousuke! Could you go out shopping for me?”
I'm stunned speechless.
"Oh, my God----! Mom, how many times must I tell you to knock before entering!"
But, of course, there is no way I will make the same mistake again.
First, I use my body to cover the screen. Then I pressed the escape key.
An excellent result! The image of a girl with open legs disappeared, replaced by a harmless blue sky.
I’m amazed! The company who developed the function is really amazing!
"Oh? Are you looking a porn sites on your little sister’s laptop again?"
"Hah! What are you talking about, mom! Look at this screen, with its clear skies, as clean as my heart! How could this image be pornographic?--- Ah, by the way, mom, how could you know about porn sites?"
Kirino! She must have been the one to tell mom about porn sites.
"All right, all right, now go buy something for me, will you?"
See that? That is how I escaped from a crisis.
Ah...I have had enough of this place! I want to go to Manami’s house!
That’s what crossed my mind as soon as I left home.
Still, I had no choice but to go to the supermarket. Although it is near sunset, the shop was still crowded.
"I hope I can make it quick…"
However, I met an unexpected friend.
In front of me is plain-girl-with-glasses Manami Tamura, my childhood friend.
“Kyou-chan? Are you here to buy ingredients for dinner, too?”
“So…ah…we hardly see each other, so how about we take a walk?”
After I saw her sincere smile, my unhappy mood immediately changed for the better, so I agreed.
I don’t know why, but everybody in the Kousaka family seemed cold towards me, while the Tamura family always welcomed me with open arms. Sometimes, I felt as if they were my true family.
So, the two of us went to the fresh food section together.
“Kyou-chan, what will you be buying for dinner?”
“Let’s see…” I took out a piece of paper that mom had given me. “Potatoes, carrots, onions, curry powder… oh! Curry again? My mom always makes curry… I wish my mom could learn something new. She doesn’t even know half of your recipes!”
“What?...No, I…I’m not that good…!”
“Don’t be too modest,” I said. “The last time I had dinner at your house, it was really good. You can make dessert, right? My mom can do that too, but she always prefers instant food!”
“Ah…ah… then, do you want me to make something for you again?”
“Really? That’d be great!”
Other people may say that conversation is boring, but for me, it is the most precious time in my life.
“Ah, right… Kyou-chan, about what happened before…”
“What do you mean?”
“The time when you stayed at my home… at night, we slept together…”
“Idiot! Don’t say things that can be easily misunderstood!”
We only slept in the same room, with our futon placed next to each other. Do you know how much trouble could have happened if my mom heard that?
“Ah, sorry, sorry…”
She still seems happy when talking about that time, without any hint of embarrassment.
Well, let’s forget it, then.
Then, Manami said, “Do you remember, Kyou-chan? You said you want to invite me to your house?”
“Ah, I forgot about it already!”
“…You really forgot it…”
Manami sounds a bit angry.
I shrugged and smiled. “How about next holiday?”
“Well, my parents are going out on that day, so can you come help me cook something?”
“…So, ah, I will definitely come!”
“Let’s go with that then!”
That’s good! Now even if mom is away, I can still get a good meal.
"So, what do you want to eat? I can make whatever you want."
"Anything is fine with me. As long as you make it, there is no way it can be bad."
Today’s events end here with this exchange.
A few days later, a Sunday morning.
As I had agreed with Manami, I brought her to my home.
We went to the supermarket to get ingredients, and we returned with two full bags.
During that time, Manami seemed very excited.
For example, sometimes she laughed, and then said:
"This... our family’s present… is that okay?"
She asked that so many times, that I felt a little strange.
I could only reply, "Don’t worry. And there is no reason for you to bring a present. Have I ever brought a present to your house?"
"But… it has been so long since my last visit…"
"No problem. Both of my parents are out today, so your present is unnecessary."
"Oh… right… your father and mother are not home…"
We finally got to the house.
"Go on in."
"Sorry for intruding…"
Just when we make the first step into my home, Kirino appeared.
They both looked directly at each other.
Then, their mouths fell open, and their eyes widened.
Oh, shit! I forgot! Even if mom and dad aren’t home, Kirino is still here!
After a brief silence...
Kirino’s expression changes. Her eyes looked like they could see right through me.
It is completely different from her usual gaze, which always stared at me like I were some kind of garbage.
It is also different from her Atilla’s eyes, when she found out I’d used her laptop to look at porn sites.
How could I put it… It seemed as if she had just seen her arch enemy.
I could see her grinding her teeth.
Only a few seconds passed, but our entrance had turned the entire place into a static space.
"Ki…Kirino? This…. What kind of hateful attitude is this? Why are you so mad?"
Ah, you hate Manami, right? No, no, it seems more than just that. No, I need to do something fast… No matter how you look at this, Manami and Kirino are not going to have a friendly conversation…
What should I do?
While I was still trying to find a peaceful solution…
"Ah, good morning, Kirino-chan."
On the other hand, Manami seems like she doesn’t realize what’s going on, and she waves to Kirino. "Long time, no see! Do you remember me? I used to come over…"
"Sorry, who might you be?"
I can almost hear the sound Kirino makes when she cuts Manami off.
Although her tone is still polite, her words are bad.
For a brother’s guest, this can be considered the worst attitude.
But Manami seems like she didn’t take any offense. Still, with a smiling face, she says, "So, ah… what a pity… I guess you don’t remember. Then once again, allow me to re-introduce myself. I’m Manami Tamura. Pleased to meet you!"
"What? Why should I listen to your introduction?"
This is not something you say to your brother’s friend!
As her brother, I felt a bit angry at her attitude.
"Hey, Kirino, come here for a second."
My sister pulls me away, leaving Manami in the living room.
Kirino closes the living room’s door.
Still holding my collar, she glares at Manami at the entrance.
She pulls my face closer, and says in a low, threatening voice, "What is going on? Why is this girl at our house?"
"…Because I asked her to come, but…"
"Huh? Why didn’t I know anything about it?"
"Because… I didn’t tell you?"
"Stop joking around! Kick her out! Now!"
"How could I do that! You… please calm down, a little…"
I push Kirino away, trying to convince her. "Why do you want to kick her out? Do you hate Manami that much?"
"…No…" Kirino whispered, still holding my collar.
I got the feeling that there was something else, but right now there was no reason for Kirino and Manami to not get along with each other.
Kirino coughed loudly, and then looked at me with murderous eyes. "In short, I just don’t like her! And you! What do you think you’re doing, bringing a girl over when mom and dad aren’t home? That’s so gross!"
"There’s nothing to be worried about. I just want her to make lunch…"
Although I did choose the time, all I want is for Manami to cook something for me! I have absolutely no intentions for what you’re imagining!
"And even if it weren’t just for lunch, that’d have nothing to do with you. You bring your friends here all the time, too. I don’t want to hear that from you."
After saying that, I turned around. However, Kirino turned a bit red in the face.
"What, so are you saying that if I brought over a boyfriend, and had s-s-s-sex in the living room… y-you’d be okay with it?"
"How’d it turn into that?! We are not doing anything like that! That is a totally different situation!"
Besides, you don’t even have a boyfriend. Please don’t say ridiculous things.
"Anyways, I can’t kick her out for no reason. I don’t know why you hate her so much. However, if you don’t want to see Manami, then just get out yourself."
"You want to kick ME out?"
"This… this is a misunderstanding!"
For God’s sake, what the hell is she saying?!
However, it seemed like our argument was loud enough for everyone in our home to hear.
The door to the living room opened, and we saw Manami look in.
She said in a worried voice, "Uhm… please… you shouldn’t fight…"
Both Kirino and I look at Manami, and then turn away from each other.
Kirino stuck her tongue out, and she seemed very unhappy.
"Hold back a little, will you? Or, I’ll give you a lecture later!"
But before I could say anything, Manami acted first.
She bowed to Kirino.
"Kirino-chan, I’m sorry for showing up so suddenly."
"…I will stareeeeeeeeeee until you die."
I can almost hear what Kirino is thinking, but Manami continued with her friendly determination. "Since I’d heard that your mom wasn’t going to be home, I thought I might help out a bit with cooking and cleaning."
As usual, Kirino kept her hand across her chest, to show off an arrogant attitude, as if she were dealing with a servant. Is there any chance that in a previous life, those two were master and servant?
Compared to Kirino’s arrogance, no one could guess that Manami was older, and even a guest. From an outsider’s perspective, Kirino was holding Manami’s reins.
Kirino said, in a mischievous voice, “Well, first thing’s first, clean up the living room before you make lunch.”
“You… since when can you command your brother’s guest?”
Originally, I wasn’t too sure I should interrupt their conversation. But when Kirino said that, I couldn’t help but to scold her.
But, Manami replied happily to her ‘master’, “Yes, leave it to me!”
Kirino maintained her posture, her face expressing a strange reaction, and her whole body froze.
I think that she thought that Manami would be angry and leave, but with how Manami reacted, she didn’t know what to do anymore.
“Then, I will borrow your refrigerator.”
From the entrance, Manami brought all the bags we bought to the kitchen.
Without saying anything, Kirino watched Manami’s reaction, and then she looked at me with angry eyes. I think she thought, “What is with that woman,” because that’s what is in my mind too.
Well, this is just like her…
While my sister and I still don’t know how to react, Manami has changed herself into a housewife form. She immediately started to clean. With a duster in hand, Manami swept the air-conditioner filter, and then continued with the furniture. She actually looked quite skilled at this.
Suddenly, Manami looked at the sofa feet where Kirino was sitting.
“Ah, that… There is a coffee drip on the carpet… I’ll clean it right away.”
Kirino’s eyebrows knitted — so you did that on purpose?
Although Manami cleaned it up very quickly, the stain still remained.
“You can’t clean the stain…”
“No problem. I can do it.”
Manami placed the wiping cloth on the stain, and then placed the vacuum cleaner on top of it. The result? The stain is completely removed.
“How… why…? No matter how much I tried, I couldn’t ever remove it like that!”
“In case you accidentally spill juice or coffee on the carpet, you can remove it by using a vacuum cleaner and a cloth like that.”
Is that another from the granny bag of wisdom, too?
Although Manami removed the stain, Kirino doesn’t show any appreciation. She still folded her arms across her chest. “What a stupid woman… you… you only made me angry!”
With that, she turned and got out of the living room.
What the hell? I’m the only one who’s angry here!
After Kirino left, me and Manami continued cleaning up.
Of course, I’m still thinking — why should I listen to my little sister’s orders too? But seeing Manami’s confident face, I could only help her.
“Well… finished, at last.”
Finally, after an hour of cleaning, my messy living room turned into a room which I almost failed to recognize. It’s not like mom is lazy, it’s just that Manami’s cleaning skills are so good, that the living room became a few times cleaner.
There is nothing on the floor, so the room seemed much bigger than usual. “Everything is so clean now…”
“Ah, since I’m not familiar with the room, I couldn’t get every corner…”
Why don’t you feel satisfied when you complete hard work?
Everything is so clean now.
“Thank you for your hard work. I’ll make some tea, so have a seat.”
“Ah, thank you…”
Manami gave me a shy smile, then said, “Ah, please wait for me to make tea.”
“No, let me do it. You are my guest.”
“Ah… all right.”
She obediently went back to the sofa. I got the feeling that she would happily do whatever I asked.
Really… giving her a wry smile, I came back from the kitchen with two cups of tea. “I’m looking forward to Kyou-chan’s tea…”
“You’re exaggerating too much…”
“No, I love to think that it’s my reward for cleaning…”
After a single sip of the tea, Manami said, “It’s really good! I feel like all of my fatigue is gone!”
“Okay, okay, thank you!”
I give her another wry smile.
Taking a sip of tea, I sat opposite of my childhood friend, enjoying this moment. “The taste is pretty common.”
I don’t know how, but now my family’s living room has the same atmosphere as in Manami’s house.
Staying with Manami, drinking tea, having a small chat… yes, this is the normal life I want.
But my precious time is shattered because someone forcefully opened the door.
Kirino stepped into the living room.
She moves to toward the kitchen, and glanced at us.
“I just want to get a drink.”
“Oh? I don’t care. Hurry up and get lost.”
“Hmp!” Kirino gives me a snort, walking out of the room.
Again, the living room filled with an awkward atmosphere.
Why does my little sister have to keep ruining my precious moments? Couldn’t she just stay in her room?
But it seems that Manami wants her to join us, so she invited Kirino. “We are taking a break after finishing cleaning. Kirino, would you like to join us?”
Kirino completely ignored Manami, going to the refrigerator, taking out a bottle of tea and drinking it.
After she finished drinking, Kirino walked past us, but she suddenly stopped. “So this is the best you can do?” Kirino walked slowly to the rack, and grazed the edge with her finger. She pointed her finger upward, and said, “What is that? Isn’t it dust?”
“What are you, some evil mother-in-law? I can’t take it anymore!” I scold her.
“Ah, ah… I’m sorry! I will clean it up again!
“Manami! You don’t need to listen to her!”
But Manami didn’t listen to me. Panicked, she began to clean the shelf again. Somehow, this scene is similar to a certain “Cinderella” movie.
“Not only that! You’ve cleaned everything up so much that I don’t know where anything is anymore! It looked messy before, but I knew exactly where I put everything. You overdid it.”
How come this sounds like what a child said to his mother when he refused to clean up his room?
“You told her to clean everything! Then, now you said she overdid it! I think you only want to see Manami’s bad side!”
In the future, she will definitely abuse her sister-in-law.
“Hey! There were some of my fashion magazines on the sofa. Where are they now?”
“They are right here!”
Manami stops cleaning and goes to the TV cabinet, opening the glass doors. Inside, there are many magazines, all of them neatly arranged.
“Here are the fashion magazines, here are the manga magazines…”
Why does Manami seem so polite towards someone younger than her? The more I look, the more I feel like Manami is some kind of servant.
“…Oh, I see. However, originally, there was no room to put these magazines inside the TV cabinet. What about the other stuff inside? Did you throw it away? Ah — my nail polish was inside too. Although it looked empty, it was still usable…”
“I didn’t throw them away. I put them all in here.”
Manami pointed to the space next to the TV. There is a small box there, which contained the TV remote, the air-conditioner remote, Kirino’s nail polish, and many other things. Not only that, but they are all arranged neatly, so that anyone can get what they want easily.
This is really convenient.
“Oh…” Kirino narrows her eyes, looking directly at the small box. Since she wanted to embarrass Manami, she is purposely trying to find fault with her work. However, since she couldn’t find any, she managed to say, “Did we always have a box like that?”
“I reused an empty tissue box.”
“What a shabby girl!”
Sorry, Manami, but I think so too. But the truth is now, everything is arranged orderly and the room looks quite refreshing. So I said to Kirino, “Well? Any other complaints?”
“Go away, then.”
Still sitting on the sofa, I wave my hand, signaling her to go away. In an instant, both of Kirino’s eyes snap open, and I can almost hear the sound of her teeth grinding. If looks could kill, then both Manami and I would be dead.
“Wh… what is it? There is no reason for you to be so mad!”
“Remember this! I don’t care anymore!”
Leaving with her angry words, Kirino runs out of the living room.
I can hear her angry footsteps when she goes back upstairs.
“What is wrong with her? I really don’t get it. Why is she becoming angrier?”
After Kirino left, I let out a tired sigh.
What is going on? I only bring my friend home, and it turned into this!
Little sister VS Childhood friend.
If this were some kind of erotic game, then this would be called a jealous event. But, considering it’s Manami and Kirino, there’s no way that this can happen. I don’t know what Kirino has in mind, but from now on, I can’t let her meet Manami again. Once is more than enough. “Ah… I’m hungry. Can you help me make something, Manami?”
“Yes! Leave it to me!”
Manami stood up, then skillfully wore the apron. She looked like any normal housewife.
“Let me borrow your kitchen for a while,” she said, and smiled.
She always gives others a warm feeling, making them comfortable. My tired body from a few seconds ago has now completely disappeared. “Of course! You can make whatever you like.”
Manami gave me a passionate "Yay!", and began to cook.
Humming a song, she quickly washed the vegetables, and then cut them with a kitchen knife. While my childhood friend is making lunch, I sit on the sofa, silently watching her back.
Although there was some trouble earlier, calling her today was the right choice.
This is the first time I saw Manami in our kitchen, but I still got a familiar feeling. Aside from her, I don’t think there is any high school girl that could be so suited for the kitchen.
After a while, an aroma started floating around. “Ah… Kyou-chan, are you looking at me?”
“Don’t worry, I was just thinking how much you look like a grandmother…”
“Ah… but I don’t want to look like your granny…”
Hah! This feeling is great.
I’m filled with contentment. Maybe, I want a mother like Manami.
And then, after about thirty minutes, lunch is complete.
“Sorry for making you wait, Kyou-chan!”
I quickly said, “Thank you,” and then stood up, intending to give her a hand.
“Ah, please, sit down. Just let me do it.”
“No, let me help, too.”
So, we ended up doing it together.
After the table is ready, Manami looks at the clock and says, “I wonder if Kirino-chan will come down and eat with us…”
You are too kind. Kirino treats you like a servant, and yet you still are willing to share. But what she said made sense. It is now 12 o’clock, and is the best time to eat lunch.
“Don’t mind her, let’s eat first.”
“No… we shouldn’t do that.”
Manami disagrees with me, but I already knew she would.
Although I don’t want to, right now, but I have no choice but to call my little sister down for lunch.
“I will get her then.”
“Please don’t fight like before,” Manami says.
But, I don’t know what the result will be, so I leave the living room with a worried mind.
I climbed the stairs, and went to my sister’s room.
“Hey Kirino! Lunch is ready! Manami is asking you to come eat with us.”
Unexpectedly, right after I said that, the door opened, revealing Kirino. “Lunch? I’ll come down after I’m done with this call.”
It was easier than I had expected. I thought that she would throw a tantrum again.
Although she still doesn’t look very pleased, it was much better than before. “What is with your mood?”
“Hmph! Nothing!” Her mood is too much better. It has only been thirty minutes, and she changed that much? It’s really surprising.
…But maybe she realized she was wrong, so she calmed down?
For now, the matter is solved. Although Kirino’s mood was better, she doesn’t say sorry to Manami. She just quietly eats lunch. “Come, Kirino. I don’t know what you like, so please eat and tell me what you think.”
“There is no difference… Ah, give me a little less rice than usual.”
As usual, that is how she eats with my family. No watching TV, no speaking with anyone. Just quietly eating. Of course, she still answers if mom asks a question, but aside from that, she is the same as my father.
“Well, how about now?”
“A little bit less…”
“Why? Is it too little for you?”
“Your food has so many calories, so if I eat too much, I will get fat.”
“It is so… ah…” Manami glanced at her waist.
Well, she is definitely a bit bigger.
This year, from autumn to winter, my childhood friend’s waist is probably… seven centimeters bigger. But don’t worry. You shouldn’t compare yourself with Kirino. Besides, she made those high calories because these are my favorites.
The scene of my plain childhood friend sighing due to her getting a little fatter makes me smile—although, in fact, I prefer my girl willing to eat without holding back.
I’m not going to say it out loud.
But those Manami and Kirino are really different. Not only is their relationship bad, but every aspect of them is the opposite of each other.
“Let’s eat then!”
“Thank you for the meal!”
“Thank you for the meal!”
In an awkward atmosphere, we start eating. On the table, there is crispy pork, a tomato dish, tofu, fish, and finally miso soup with seaweed. “This is really good!”
After my first bite, I can’t help but praise Manami.
Really, it is delicious.
Of course, it’s not like restaurant’s food. But, if I had to choose, I would choose Manami’s food.
“Really? That’s great!”
Manami let out a sigh of relief.
I want to know what Kirino thinks too, but unfortunately she is just silently eating, not saying a word.
This is how she normally eats, so to avoid any more quarrel, I don’t force her to say her opinion.
“This pork was mixed with onion and basil, and then fried twice later, right?”
“Yes! Kyou-chan said you like that, so…”
“I said that? Hah, but this is really delicious, so of course I’d like it…”
We enjoy our conversation while eating, and when I finished my second bowl…
Kirino stands up and with a blank expression, says, “Thanks for the meal. It was good. Please, excuse me.”
Then, Kirino quietly left the room. Manami keeps looking at Kirino’s back, then she looks at me. “She said it is good.”
I can only shrug my shoulders. Kirino is not someone to tell a lie so easily. So just now, she did praise Manami.
Somehow, my feeling seems to be conveyed to Manami, who slowly smiled. Then she let out another big sigh. “Somehow, I felt so nervous!”
Are you a little girl just going through a little-sister-in-law’s test?
If that is the case, then did you pass?
I can’t help but laugh at this strange idea.
After lunch, I watch TV while Manami washes dishes.
She gently sits now next to me, embarrassed.
“What’s wrong, Manami? If you need to use the bathroom, then it’s to the right of the living room.”
“No… I don’t… Geez, Kyou-chan! You’re teasing me again!.”
“Sorry, sorry. So, what is bothering you?”
“I… I mean… Can I take a look at your room?”
“Huh? Of course you can, but there’s nothing special there.”
“That’s great!” Manami happily claps her hands together.
Just like that, I bring her to my room.
My room is on the second floor, on the left.
This is the first time I let a girl into my room…yes, a girl, but this is Manami… Even so, I should have cleaned my room yesterday…
Yeah… I almost forgot that hidden under my bed is my porn collection… I should make sure she doesn’t see that…
Kirino is probably inside her room, so nothing should interrupt us.
“This is my room. Go in.”
After I open the door to my room, my eyes unconsciously move to the front desk… shit! What the fuck!
“Ack!” I rushed to the desk, and used my whole body to block the laptop’s screen from Manami.
Why, you ask? Because the laptop is showing an erotic scene!
And even worse, it is a ‘little sister erotic’.
Why? Why did I have Kirino’s laptop in my room? Why here? Why now!
Calm down… calm down and think, Kyousuke! How could I end up in this situation? Who set this trap in my room?
No no no no! This is too obvious. Aside from Manami and I, there is only one more person at home! Damn it, damn it! Damn you, Kirino!
That’s why you left the living room so angrily, and then came back with your mood suddenly changed for the better? You set this trap up for fun?
Why did you do that? This is really too much!
Damn you! Damn you, Kirino!
“What’s wrong, Kyou-chan?”
I can feel my cold sweat when I realize that Manami’s looking at me.
My suddenly odd behavior left her stunned. You asked what is wrong… how… how could I explain the scene of an erotica where a little sister raises her legs in an M shape…
“No… Nothing at all! Really... really nothing at all…”
“There is something…”
“No… Really, there is nothing at all! I just… just suddenly got an impulse.”
Why am I giving such a lame excuse? But… this is bad… this is too bad… If Manami sees that, then I can only commit suicide!
“Phew… phew… phew… phew…”
I focus, trying to figure out how to get out of this situation or at least some countermeasures. First, I keep using my body to block the laptop’s screen, which is showing an erotic CG. And standing behind me is Manami. Now how could I escape?
Are there… are there any good ideas? Anything? Come on! Think! Think, Kyousuke!”
Manami looked worried, slowly nearing me.
There is no time! No more time!
Suddenly this wonderful sound rings in my head!
Right, there is a solution!
Forced into a corner, my eyes focused on the escape button.
Yes—it is the ‘emergency escape’ button.
The erotic CG, which is enough to force me to commit suicide, will become completely harmless with just one press. Its existence is like an airbag in the car or a jet fighter’s emergency escape seat. You can say that the function is created with only the purpose of helping the player. Fortunately, this certain game had the emergency function.
Ahaha, I really want to praise the game production company.
In an instant, I press the emergency escape button.
I wipe my sweat with the back of my hand.
Everything is okay now… The screen has been switched with a completely harmless image, and I finally let out a sigh of relief. “Ha ha, sorry to surprise you like that, Manami!”
But when I’m going to give Manami a hearty smile…
“Wow… wow… amazing!”
Manami is reading Kousaka Kyousuke’s porn cache.
“Wait… where did you get that magazine?”
When I take a look around, I realize that my secret porn cache, which is supposed to be hidden under my bed, is now casually scattered everywhere on the floor.
After I got into my room, my attention was only on the laptop… so… this is… how…
Damn you, Kirino! Even the devil himself is not as bad as you!
I quickly snatch the porn magazine back from Manami’s hand, then crawl around, trying to take my whole collection back.
Pops pops pops!
I have never been able to clean my room that fast.
Still dumbstruck, Manami can only say, “…It was all girls with glasses…”
“This is not like it! Well, they are, but that’s not it!”
How can I explain it to her now?
With teary eyes, I continued to pick up my collection, and finally was able to push all of them under my bed.
The first time I let a girl into my room, she finds out about my secret porn collection, and even worse, that collection is something she should NOT see…
This room is really full of traps! I think I almost got a heart attack….
But at least there shouldn’t be any more problems.
Are there? I force my eyes towards Manami.
"Miss Manami… where are you looking at?"
Since I got another very bad feeling, my talking must’ve become a bit strange.
Maybe it’s because Manami is blushing?
The bad feeling is still here, but when I look at where Manami is looking—there should be a completely harmless picture in the laptop’s screen…
I let out a sorrowful groan.
After I pressed the emergency escape button, the screen changed into a loli girl in a swimsuit, with a sexy posture, and under that image, a line read “Onii-chan is a pervert who only gets turned on by his little sister!”
“Why! Why did it come out!”
“Kyou-chan… this… is..”
Wait, wait, what is going on? Why? Emergency escape function should work, would did this image pop out? The manual clearly said that there are several types of emergency escape images… don’t tell me…
Is it because of some employee’s sick jokes, that the emergency escape button has a chance of showing an erotic CG?
That must be it… damn it… you can just laugh it off... but have you ever thought about a guy’s life which depended on this button?
But… but why is that happening to me?
So terrible.. you betrayed my trust…
“Kyou-chan, what does ‘turned on’ mean?”
Wait! This is not the time to blame some company!
I notice that Manami is now blushing, and she is looking at the CG with a surprised expression.
What can I say? Not only am I unable to think of anything to say, but I also feel that it’s too late now.
Ugh! Now I’m in such a situation! What I feared most has just happened!
I remembered how panicked Kirino was when her friend found out about her otaku habit, and now I’m having the same experience.
This is bad! This is really bad!
I don’t know what to do any more, and I can feel my heart beating faster and faster, while time seems slower. My sweat kept flooding out of my forehead, and I can’t bring myself to look at Manami.
Still blushing, Manami said, “I see…”
Then she smiles.
So you have no problems with that?
I want to ask her again, but I don’t want to risk by saying it.
Luckily, my relationship with Manami won’t be changed with just that.
My normal, smooth, daily life will not be destroyed.
So, because she saw my porn magazines full of girls with glasses, and my laptop with an erotic CG, Manami will not say, “Don’t talk to me anymore.”
But, what will she say to me now?
I can’t ever forget that…
“Um.. Kyou-chan, um…”
Still having a shy smile, Manami said, “In the future, do you want me to call you Onii-chan, too?”
I cry on the spot. This is really too much now.
