“T-that’s right! The person who’s staying at the moment, c-could it be… a woman…?”

“Eh? T-that’s… Um… How should I say this…?”

“Ah… Yuuya? You can’t fake that already, can you?”

“No way!”

“I-I think I can cover it up…”

Ryo and Shingo-kun have a bitter smile on their faces… but I didn’t realize that they knew before I tried to fool them…

“Um… Well, she’s temporarily at my house now, the same way that Yuti is at my house.”

You mean that new transfer student everyone’s talking about?”

“I-it’s amazing, isn’t it? She was popular in the middle school on her first day, and now she’s popular in the high school as well…”

“Eh, what happened to Yuti?”

“S-so Yuuya-kun who lives with her doesn’t even know about it…”

Well, there is a certain air of unworldliness about Yuti, and her physical abilities, as a disciple of the Bow Saint, are excellent in many ways.

These days, Kaori has taught her the common sense of our world, so she no longer acts in an outrageous manner, but even so, the natural parts she shows at a moment’s notice makes people feel more comfortable with her.

In any case, I’m glad that everyone seemed to have accepted her.

Once the conversation went off-topic, I quickly asked everyone about it.

“Well, you said earlier that you were meeting with your relatives, but did anyone else visit you or go out with you?”

Kaori then answered my question with a happy expression on her face.

“Oh, my little sister is coming home tomorrow!”

“Eh, your little sister?”

“Kaori, you have a younger sister?”

Not only me but also everyone else seemed to have never heard of it and were surprised by Kaori’s words.

“Yes! My little sister has been following my mother overseas for work, and she’s currently attending a school overseas…”

“Your mother also works abroad, huh…”

“…The more I hear about it, the more it sounds like an amazing family.”

“It’s really amazing.”

When Kaede and the others sincerely muttered this, Kaori hurriedly continued.

“N-no! My father and mother are indeed remarkable, but I’m not even close! My sister is also working hard overseas, and as an older sister, I can’t afford to lose!”

I think it’s already amazing that she can think like that, but I guess that’s Kaori’s strength.

When family members are accomplished, it’s natural to think that you’re great too.
I think it’s hard to think of yourself as separate from your family.
It’s something I’d like to learn from.

Kaori had been cheerfully talking about welcoming her sister back, but her expression suddenly became cloudy.

“Hmm? What’s wrong?”

“No, it’s just that… I’m really happy that my little sister is coming home, but recently my father has been receiving a lot of threatening letters.”

“Threatening letters?”

We were all surprised at the unexpected contents.
Aren’t threatening letters too… disturbing?

It demanded money… If my father didn’t pay it, his daughter’s life would be in danger…”

“I-is that all right?”

“It’s okay because nothing has happened yet, but… because of that, we’ve been increasing the number of guards lately.”

“Oh, I see…”

No wonder there were so many people guarding Kaori yesterday.

Fortunately, I’ve given Kaori a crisis ring, which may be difficult to use at school, but if she wears it regularly, she’ll be able to transfer to my house in an instant if something goes wrong.
In the meantime, she should be careful while she’s at school.

“So, to be safe, I don’t really want my little sister to come home… but since we can’t see each other very often, and since she’s more feisty than me… she doesn’t want to lose to the threats…”

“S-she’s a pretty amazing sister…”

She didn’t want to be defeated by the letters.
Kaori also has a strong character, but she has never felt particularly strong-willed, which is strange.
In terms of personality, is Kaori like Tsukasa-san? They both seem to be calm and composed.

“When my sister is coming back, my father has prepared proper guards at the airport, so as long as nothing happens to her before she arrives at the airport, I think she will be fine…”

Kaori looked somewhat uneasy, but she seemed to be really looking forward to seeing her sister and seemed happy.
I hope everything is fine.

While everyone was giving each other updates, the time for homeroom was approaching, so they went back to their respective classrooms and seats to prepare for their assignments.
