I Want to Fall in Love After Getting Reincarnated as the Heroine on the Verge of a Bad Ending, but My OP Older Brother Won’t Leave Me Alone!? - Chapter 52
Translated by: ShinigamiTori
Chapter 52 ─ Relationship
“I’ll go get ready, so please wait here for a moment.”
With that, Yoshida’s sister left the room, and the moment the door closed, I turned around and faced Yoshida.
“S-so, this is it…?”
“Why the question form?”
Yoshida let out a deep sigh, then pushed up his glasses that had slipped down with his middle finger.
“It’s my sister’s fault for not listening to the whole story. I’m sorry.”
“No, it’s alright. She’s a wonderful sister.”
It’s clear that she cares about Yoshida and is worried about him, and that the two of them are close, so I want to make sure that Yoshida’s sister is comfortable with me and that we can continue our relationship.
“But if I can’t defeat Yoshida’s sister, does that mean I won’t be able to be friends with Yoshida anymore…?”
Saying it out loud again, the power phrase “If I can’t defeat Yoshida’s sister…” does sound a bit ridiculous.
In the first place, how are we supposed to fight? She’s Max’s high-spec older sister. Honestly, my chances of winning right now are slim. Still, I wanted to do my best.
“Anyway, you don’t need to worry too much. It’ll be fine.”
I tilted my head in confusion, and 10 minutes later, I came to understand the meaning of those words.
Half an hour later, I found myself engaged in an intense battle with Yoshida’s sister at the corner of the vast and beautiful Yoshida’s residence garden.
Our duel was in the form of magical combat. To avoid any major injuries, only water magic is allowed. By the way, it seems Yoshida’s sister graduated from Heartful Academy this spring.
“… Even the entrance exam for the elementary admissions would be a bit more challenging.”
At some distance away, Yoshida has a look of dismay on his face.
That’s right, the magic we cast on each other never quite made contact, always stopping just short. It was a bittersweet close-range battle.
I had only trained hard to hit the target to prepare for the exam, and when the target changed to something else or from a different angle, my accuracy was basically nonexistent. And to my surprise, Yoshida’s sister was also at the same level as me.
“Oh, are you playing with the water? It’s quite hot today, so that’s a great idea.”
A passing elderly man, who seems like the gardener, smiles and nods as he goes by. Our serious showdown appears to be nothing more than a playful activity.
“I-I did it…!”
Finally, I successfully shot a splash of water at Yoshida’s sister’s face, and the referee, Yoshida, saw that it was getting late, so the winner was decided.
Although I was supposed to have won, I felt a tremendous sense of defeat as she became sexier and more beautiful as she was soaked in water.
“You’re the first person to hold your own against me like this.”
“I suppose so.”
Certainly, fights at such a low level are rare.
Yoshida’s sister seems to have consistently stayed in the D-rank when she was a student. While she almost always aced written exams and had a decent amount of magical power, her technical skills were reportedly disastrous.
“Well then, I’m going to change for the next exam, so please wait for me in Max’s room where it will be held.”
“Don’t just use my room as an exam venue without asking.”
Somehow, I passed the first exam, and I returned to Yoshida’s room with a sense of relief.
“You were impressive earlier. There’s no problem with your abilities.”
“No, no, I think you’re mistaken.”
Fifteen minutes later, I was in Yoshida’s room, sitting across the table from his sister in an interview-style setup.
I’m worried because she occasionally lets out cute sneezes, probably because she’s been soaked by the water. Is she alright?
“Alright, we’ll start the final exam now.”
I thought it was the second round, but it turned out to be the final exam. I bowed my head and said, “Please take care of me.”
“In 2,000 words or less, describe what you like about Max.”
I’m confident that I can talk endlessly about things I like about Yoshida. However, expressing it verbally within 2,000 words is quite challenging. But I guess this is also a test for me. I have to be careful.
“What I like about Maximilian is—”
Thus, I started talking about my fondness for Yoshida.
“…. Please, can we just stop this now?”
After a while, I came to my senses when I heard Yoshida’s voice as he covered his face with both hands. It seems that I had become passionate and got carried away.
There’s no doubt I must have exceeded the predetermined 2,000 words. I panicked and looked at Yoshida’s sister, but for some reason, she was dabbing the corner of her eyes with a handkerchief and nodding in agreement.
“As expected, Max’s judgment was accurate… I agree with you so much that my neck hurts.”
“Um, how many words is it currently?”
“I think it’s exactly 2,000 words.”
Although the judgment suddenly became vague, it appears Yoshida’s sister was satisfied with my answer, so I felt relieved once again.
“I’ve received your feelings for Max loud and clear.”
“You’re going to accept it?”
“I’ll acknowledge your relationship with Max.”
Yoshida’s sister wipes her tears with a handkerchief and smiles, “Please take good care of Max.”
──I knew that in my previous life, there was a classmate who was told by her parents, “Don’t be friends with Suzune-chan.” That’s why I’m so happy to be recognized by my dear friend’s family.
“Yoshida, I did it! She approved of me!”
“From now on, let’s continue to take care of each other! I love you!”
“You’re getting too excited, you embarrassing idiot.”
I got too carried away and thought I would be scolded.
But Yoshida ruffled my head and said, “Thanks,” with a small smile. Seeing us like that, Yoshida’s sister was crying so much that I was worried she might throw up.
“From now on, you can think of me as your sister. Please call me Alexia.”
“Really? Thank you so much, that makes me really happy!”
“I don’t need a sister like you.”
“Max, you’ve become quite the joker, haven’t you?”
I had always longed to have an older sister, so I nodded at Alexia-san’s words, my heart pounding.
…. I was completely oblivious to the absurd misunderstanding that had developed between me and Yoshida’s sister.
