It’s Alice using the super cutesy way of her referring to herself with her own name. I don’t always translate it, but I’ll do it some times, so keep that in mind.
I was walking towards the school on the sidewalk I always use.
Besides me is Alice, smiling happily.
I reluctantly decided to do the pamper strategy. It’s super effective, her mood has improved immensely already. She seems to be consistently in a good mood.
“Onee-chan doesn’t want Alice to cry?”(It’s Alice using the super cutesy way of her referring to herself with her own name. I don’t always translate it, but I’ll do it some times, so keep that in mind.)
She tilted her head and asked with a smile.
“Maybe. . . .”
I honestly just want to be left alone, but I answered with a smile and brushed her head.
She happily laughed, completely ignorant to the actual reason.
Then she got closer and attached herself to me.
It’s pretty hard to walk with somebody attached to me.
I held in my sigh, then I noticed something off.
“Alice can you hold still for a second?”
Alice looked at me confused as I held her by the shoulder. I turned her towards me.
“Your ribbon is crooked.”
I knew something was off, I just couldn’t put my finger on it. It was the ribbon on her chest.
I quickly fixed the ribbon.
Hmm, just perfect.
“Yup, it’s cute.”
I stroked her head as I said that.
When we were kids, Alice used to love being called cute from me. It often put her in a good mood. But once her abusive attitude started I never called her that again.
It’s kinda embarrassing to call somebody cute. Alice giggled and stopped me by my shoulder, getting closer in the process. She held me by my shoulder and kissed my cheek.
My eyes widened unintentionally.
It’s the same. Just like when we were kids she would kiss my cheeks when I called her cute, she was so happy when that happened.
It really is bringing back emotions from the past.
That reminds me. When I got a kiss on the cheek from Alice, I was usually obliged to return the favor, and kiss her on the cheek.
It appears that she still does all the things we used to do, so I should probably just do what we did in the past. So I kissed Alice on the cheek.
“Onee-chan. . .”
Her eyes went wide open. She was staring at me with her shaking deep blue eyes and her hand covering her cheek where I kissed.
“Onee-chan. . .Did Onee-chan go back to how she used to be?”
She asked with a trembling voice.
How Onee-chan used to be? What does that mean?
“Onee-chan as always been kind, but recently Onee-chan’s personality changed. I thought, maybe Onee-chan started to hate me. . . .”
She said with a shivering voice and tears overflowing from her eyes.
Hated her? Did the female me started to get fed up with Alice?
“I don’t want to be hated by Onee-chan. I was so scared, I didn’t want to lose you, but I didn’t know what to do. I-I knew if I followed you around to much you would, but I didn’t know, I didn’t . . .”
She talked with her trembling voice mixed in with sobs and tears.
It was because of Alice’s abnormal clinginess that the female me gave off that feeling.
As I thought. Alice and Yurizono-san completely overwhelmed my female version, leading to her escaping and pushing it all on me.
Hmm. I wonder if that means the female me is in the male version of me’s world now.
This is too confusing, I don’t know what is happening.
Although suppose that the female me is now in the male version of me’s world. Will she be okay becoming the big brother of a tyrant Alice? Especially if all she knows is the clingy, fawning Alice. Plus the male version of me is hated by a lot of people. . .
. . .Hang in there female me.
She whimpered while opening her arms out to me. She is totally like a child.
I sighed internally and approached her, drawing her into a tight hug.
She gave me a bear hug. Trembling while burying her face into my shoulder.
“Onee-chan. My Onee-chan. The world’s best kind Onee-chan is back. . . .”
Her shivering voice raised something inside of me.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to go back to my world. And inside I may actually be your Onii-chan, but regardless. I am your twin and that will never change.
“I’m home, Alice.”
I said, tightening my hug.
There was a fuss right when we got to the school.
I realized why instantly.
There where a ton of students pointing at the school’s roof.
There was a girl with silver hair standing at the ledge of the school’s roof. It was Yurizono. (TN:That escalated quickly.)
“I am filled with sorrow. From the bottom of my heart, I am in love with Amane-san, but she was taken away by that pervert sis-con blondie.”
Yurizono said loudly from the ledge. This is getting really serious.
Taken away by Alice? What is she talking about?
Plus how did she get on the roof and over the fence? Shouldn’t the roof be locked?
“A while back, I saw something. I saw at the road my Amane-san being forcibly kissed by that perverted sis-con blondie. She was clearly N T R ing me. And oppose to her usual rejection it continued. Ahh, all this pain I feel in my heart.”
(これは明確なＮＴＲです。普通にフラれるよりずっとつらいのです。)(TN:I am not completely sure what NTR means. So here is my attempted definition. NTR: is a japanese acronym for Netorare. Its when someone’s guy/girl is stolen/being stolen. It could be unwillingly or willingly. It could be serious like sleeping with somebody else, or just holding hands, but as long as he/she falls in love or seduced with/by the other person. I think)
So she saw that kiss on the street? It was such a shock that she is going to jump off the roof !?!
If she wanted to say something couldn’t she just do it down here? It’s dangerous up there.
“Could I ask why? I just want to “Talk, and do “word games”(しりとり)” happily with Amane-san, But that perverted sis-con twin sister won’t allow that, her with the advantage of always being with her. . . My modest dream she won’t even allow, and to top it off, she shows off to me by kissing her on the street.”
(She says “しりとり” for that talking part, and I have no idea what that means. Sakurakoi and Matre were saying it could be its a word play, as しり/尻 (ass) and とり/取り (to take) . And it just goes over Amane’s head as it did mine.I have no idea how I could translate that meaning so here it is.)
I have to tell her that kiss was a misunderstanding, it was just on the cheek. Also I didn’t know that “talking word game(しりとり)” she was talking about yesterday was so important to her. Because if it’s only playing word games we could play that all day. So please stop doing something so stupid!
“I don’t want much unlike that sis-con. I just want little things, like for my Amane-san to hug me. And take baths together. And sleep together. And live together, and spend all our time together. And to do “things” in the night.”
Despite saying “little things” her demands got progressively more intense.
“But then that Sis-con pervert NTR’d me and destroyed my modest dream. So goodbye everyone. I would rather close the curtains on my life then feel this pain in my chest any longer. No matter what you say I will join the birds. . . But if Amane-san tries I may.”
Then everybody turned their eyes to me.
So now it’s all placed on me to stop this.
“T-that female cat. Once again, she is using death to try and sway Onee-chan. . . .”
Alice said in disgust, while grinding her teeth and glaring at Yurizono on the roof.
Again? Does this happen often?
If this happens all the time wouldn’t it lose a lot of its threat?
I didn’t know this much was happening female self. I’d want to run away too if I had to deal with this all the time.
Everybody is still staring at me.
Sigh* There doesn’t seem to be a real threat of suicide here. But I can’t just leave her alone.
Even if she doesn’t really intend to kill herself, it is still very dangerous to be up there, She could slip and actually die.
“Yurizono! Please stop this! If you aren’t careful you’ll fall!”
There seems to be a teacher on the roof yelling at her. I can’t see her though.
It feels a bit weird that the teacher is not fully aware that she could die.
Yurizono didn’t like the teacher’s attitude, she took out one of her legs over the ledge and swayed around.
“I am serious ! Don’t treat me like an idiot!”
Although it’s kinda hard to see, Yurizono-san shouted at the teacher with a stiff voice. Then the wind shook Yurizono-san even more, making the teacher shriek. Yurizono quickly tried to get a grasp on the fence again.
“Is Minazuki Amane not here yet!? If she is tell her to get up here now!”
The teacher on the roof is yelling for me.
“Onee-chan are you going up there?”
Alice timidly asked.
I looked away from her, knowing her cheeks inflated in displeasure.
I didn’t confirm or deny it.
Although I’m sure Alice knows my answer. Even if she has no intention of committing suicide there is still the risk of her slipping accidentally. Because of that, this is truly a life and death situation.
“Alice be kind.”
I stroked her head when I said that. She looked away quickly, although I could see her ears are bright red.
I took her hand and we went towards the school’s roof.
Sorry this took a bit longer than usual. I got side tracked. So now that it’s more hinted that they may be different with the original female Amane who started to get tired of Alice and tried to distant herself . Distant herself she did, went across timelines to get away from her. Also I feel like she’ll somehow become popular again and the Alice in the male version’s world will fall for her again.
Uhh next chapter in 2-5 days. There is still no new “I was just” chapters so it’s gonna be this.
