I looked at her with a bright smile so that I wouldn’t be suspected.
“You’re like a child at times like this.
Eat the chocolate cake first.
If you’re nervous, should I take a bite?”
I’m going to eat it all by myself.
Don’t take it away from me.”
I hardened my face seriously.
I couldn’t believe I’m about to try a piece of cake.
“…I’m going to eat it all.”
Speaking sincerely, Cecilia had a tense face for the first time.
“I think this is the first time you acted this greedy.”
“The chocolate I had last time was really good.”
It felt like my whole body was melting.
The food called chocolate, which I had never eaten in my life, made my body feel like it was melting in warm water.
What did she mean by chocolate cake! Wasn’t cake the type of food that made you feel like you’re flying in the sky just by eating it?!
The kind of food I’ve only seen in books has stirred a greedy side I’ve never seen before.
“Then eat it all! You don’t have to worry about it because it’s left out by a trustworthy person.”
I raised the small fork because I was a little curious who Cecilia was talking about, but I didn’t want to know everything about Cecilia’s private life.
So I ate the chocolate cake for the first time in my life.
The cake was so delicious that it made me say, “This is heavenly!”
It was chocolate that melted in my mouth and fluffy like bread.
From now on, I have a new dream.
“I want to eat all the big chocolate cakes!”
It’s such a shame to eat just one piece.
I was chewing my lips out of regret and put down the fork.
The next day…
As if waiting for the morning to come, the door was knocked as soon as the sun rose.
Originally, it would not have been the time for me to get up, but I was particularly sensitive to the sound of the door, so I quickly got up from my seat.
Cecilia hasn’t come into the room yet because it’s just in time for me to wake up, so I opened the door rubbing my sleepy eyes.
In front of the door, I saw Allen standing with his bed hair.
“What are you…?”
“You should call me ‘Brother’!”
“Not Duck, Brother!”
“I said, call me Brother, okay?”
I’ve never met anyone like him before.
Today, Allen looked at me with an anxious look on his face.
“So why are you here today?”
“If you call me ‘Brother’, I’ll tell you.
I brought you a present today.”
“Yeah! You said you hated flowers, so I brought something else! Isn’t Brother really cool?”
When I heard it was a gift, I looked at Allen.
What did Allen want from me? There’s no reason for him to be nice to me without any reason.
But Allen was a man full of expression and vibrant behavior.
“…Why are you so nice to me?”
“Because you’re my sister!”
“You have another sibling apart from me.”
“Oh, Harris? Harris doesn’t like me.”
“Uh… don’t you know? She doesn’t like me because I’m stupid.”
Allen, who scratched his head, smiled awkwardly.
“That can’t be.
She can’t like you just because you are stupid.
Brother, you’re not stupid.”
“I said to call me ‘Brother’!”
“…Forget me saying you’re not stupid.”
Bebe is the only one who knows my true worth!”
“…How did you know my name again?”
Allen flashed a gummy smile, as he had waited for me to ask.
It was a very different experience.
In the past, almost everyone hadn’t shown me such an innocent smile without hostility, but his smile was strangely nice.
Thanks to him, I had no choice but to imitate that stupid smile.
“I didn’t smile! So how did you know my name?”
“I’ve been asking, of course.
I have to know my sibling’s name.”
With his shoulders shrugged, Allen held his hand out to me, which he had hurriedly put behind him, as if he had remembered something.
“That’s why I’m here today! I’m giving this to you because you called me ‘Brother’.”
I could see the shiny yellow wrapping paper.
It was so clumsy as Allen wrapped it up separately.
The ribbon was shaped, but it was just a tie.
It even looked like it could come loose if you dragged it.
“What is this?”
“Come on, untie it.”
No, I mean, you…
“Is the package ducked?”
“Was this wrapped by Duck… no, I mean you?”
I’m not good at tying ribbons, so they look ugly, but the contents are pretty good.”
So that’s what you’re going to say about your weakness, huh.
Though it’s a very small thing, it’s my first time I’ve ever seen someone say something about their weakness in life, so I stopped for a moment.
“Aren’t you going to answer me?”
Meanwhile, Allen rushed me again.
So I held the enormous gift in my arms.
My father or mother would give me a present, but it was the first time someone else gave me a present, so somewhere in my heart trembled.
Just receiving it makes my heart pound.
“Come on, come on.”
Allen kept expecting me to unwrap it, so I untangled it.
A pink doll appeared.
