Thursday 24th of June
Ema: (Eventually, I was able to get accustomedto living here everyday with my brothers)
Ema: (Some are late sleepers like Masaomi-san, but with everyone awake family breakfasts are usually quite lively.)
Wataru: Today’s rice is really delicious! Thank you Kyo-tan and onee-chan!!
Ukyo: Now, Wataru. If you don’t hurry it up you’ll be late.
Kaname: So, Imouto-chan, how’s life been treating you?
Ema: …Hm? What do you mean…?
Kaname: What I mean is, you’ve had a pretty sudden environment change, has it been a bit exhausting for you?
Ema: Not at all. It’s been fun for me everyday.
Kaname: Well, I’m glad to hear it.
Ema: Although, the train rides have been a bit rough since they’re longer for me now.
Tsubaki: Oh, the train during the rush hours are the worst.
Tsubaki: But if I came with you, I’d keep you close to me, and protect you from any unwanted contact!
Azusa: Tsubaki… You spoke your inner thoughts just now…
Tsubaki: Oh no, seriously?
Kaname: Come to think of it, what has Yusuke been doing? You go to the same school yet I’ve noticed you two leave at different times.
Ukyo: Do you go to school separately?
Kaname: What? Seriously?
Ema: Um… yes.
Ema: (Ever since I’ve became part of the family, Yusuke-kun had left to go to school at a different time from my own.)
Tsubaki: Why can’t you just go together? Aren’t you worried leaving a girl to ride a train all by herself? Yusuke’s so cold-hearted.
Yusuke: S-Shut up…! I’m really busy in the morning!!
Azusa: But clearly not busy enough to eat three servings of breakfast in the morning.
Yusuke: W-Well–Without my usual portion of rice, I’ll starve to death!
Kaname: *Sigh* …Can’t you just admit you’re too embarrassed to go to school with your new little sister?
Yusuke: I’m telling you that’s not it!
Kaname: Yuu-chan, you aren’t very popular with the girls, are you?
Yusuke: Well unlike you I don’t care about that stuff!
Azusa: Ema, are you sure you’re okay with it? You don’t have to force yourself you know.
Iori: I’d be happy to have you come with me, but I usually ride my bike to school…
Wataru: Onee-chan can’t ride the train? that’s too bad…
Louis: Yusuke-kun… I thought you we’re more kind hearted than this…
Ema: U-Um… it’s okay guys. I can handle it myself.
Kaname: Ah, my little sister is so brave. Yuu-chan could learn a thing or two from you.
Tsubaki: I can’t let you do it, Ema!! My dear cute little sister packed in a crowded train? It’d be too much for you!
Tsubaki: So Yusuke-kun, what’ll it be? Will you step up as a man?
Ema: Please, don’t worry about it Yusuke-kun. Like I said, I’m fine.
Yusuke: …….F-Fine. But just for today!! And don’t call me “Yusuke-kun” outside of the house!!
Ema: (I went to school with Yusuke-kun but…)
Ema: (It seems like he’s been in a bad mood ever since we left. It’s a bit awkward…)
Yusuke: …Seems like a lot of people are gathering around the station today.
Ema: …Yeah, you’re right.
Ema: (So we have to board a train with all these people…)
Yusuke: Hey, quit dozing off or I’ll leave you behind.
Ema: R-Right, sorry.
Ema: (I followed after Yusuke as we rushed into the platform.)
Ema: (Ugh, today’s rush hour really is the worse. It’s packed full of people. Thankfully, it should decrease after we arrive at the Shinjuku Station.)
Yusuke: A-Are you all right…
Ema: S-Sorry, the train shook so suddenly…
Ema: Huh…? Yusuke-kun?
Yusuke: …hold on to me.
Ema: T-Thank you, Yusuke-kun.
Yusuke: I-I thought I already told you to not call me that.
Yusuke: Sheesh….Ah–What’s with that face? You’re not in pain are you?
Ema: N-no, I’m fine….!
Ema: (If I looked up just a bit, Yusuke-kun’s eyes met my own barely inches apart.)
Ema: (Yusuke-kun’s face is completely red… Then again, so is mine…)
Ema: (I glance at the body that just protected me. It’s a man’s body no matter how you look at it. It’s no surprise… Yusuke-kun is a a man after all.)
Ema: (As painful and packed the train was, I was able to have a pretty different view of it today.)
Ema: Thank you for helping me on the train earlier.
Yusuke: I-Its not like I did that cause I thought it would help or anything! It’s a coincidence we ended up in such a position…
Ema: (Even if he says that…)
1: But, I felt much more at ease (hearts)
2: …..Your face is bright red
1: But, I felt much more at ease
Ema: Even so, you made me feel a lot more comfortable in such a tight spot. Thank you Yusuke-kun.
Yusuke: …! L-Like I said, enough with the “Yusuke-kun!”
2: ….Your face is bright red
Ema: Yusuke-kun, you’re face is completely red. Are you all right?
Yusuke: S-Shut up! And I told you not to call me by my first name!!
Mahoko: Good morning. Hey, What’s with all the shouting Asahina?
Yusuke: It’s nothing!
Mahoko: Hmmm, I got it. You two started going out didn’t you?
Ema: W-Whaaat!? Maho-chan!!
Yusuke: Huuh!? What makes you think that?!!
Mahoko=: Oh? But isn’t it true that you two started walking to school together? It is isn’t it?
Yusuke: Ah! Shut it! I’m out of here.
Mahoko: Hehe. Asahina’s face was as red as his hair.
Ema: Maho-chan… I think that’s enough teasing for one day…
Mahoko: No way, I can’t help but get a kick out of his reactions! It’s just so typical of him!
Ema: (Still, I really hope I’ll be able to go to school with him again.)
Ema: (We passed through the gate of the school while following after the back of Yusuke-kun)
