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.
Lunch break just started so I decided to call out to my friends.
“So you want to eat at the courtyard?”
Takanashi-san asked me.
I invited them to the courtyard so we could eat our bentos.
And then I could hand out my steaming pudding and homemade cookies.
The female me is fairly popular for some reason, and if I gave them my homemade sweets in front of everybody it could lead to people getting jealous. And then even if I made enough sweets for the class, then the other classes would get jealous. I don’t think I could make enough for the school.
So we’ll eat our bentos at the courtyard and then I’ll give them the sweets.
Although now Alice might get jealous if she finds out we did this.
We were on our way to the courtyard when then—-
“Eh? This? This is the pudding that Amane-san made only for me!”
When then, the number of people with us increased. Moreover,the person is holding the pudding I made close to her like it was a valuable possession. She is just happily chatting about it.
“Fufufu. I am so in love, it’s getting pretty troubling!”
Yurizono-san kept talking by herself. Takanashi and Yanomiya just sighed and rolled their eyes. While Kiniwa just smiled.
Well that’s Yurizono for you. And while I appreciate you liking it so much, if you keep it close to you so much, you’ll warm it up quickly and just spoil it faster.
“Shut up you cat! Onee-chan only made it for me ! You just happened to be there so she felt sorry and gave you one!”
And obviously Alice is here. She is holding my arm tightly while we walk and barking at Yurizono when she can.
Yurizono is taking the abuse, yet she is still smiling and her eyes are shining red.
I wonder if she is happy that she is getting barked at or it’s just because of the pudding.
I didn’t call for these two, but they still wound up finding us and following us.
Well regardless, we arrived at the courtyard. We went towards a square gazebo in the center of the courtyard.
There is a pretty large table in the center of the gazebo. We all sat around the table and placed our bentos on the table.
“Amane, what’s with the large bento?. . .”
Takanashi who is sitting across from me, asked once I placed my huge bento box.
By the way. Yurizono and Alice are sitting on both sides of me.
And then there is Yanomiya, who seems like she wants to do something.
I think I know. She wants to sit on my lap,right? Maybe we can after this.
“It’s just egg rolls. If you like, everybody could have some.”
I opened up my bento in the middle of the table showing everybody it.
While I was cooking the sweets, I decided I might as well make something else. So I made egg rolls.
Yurizono’s eyes shined and she raised a weird voice.
Also it seems like she only has yakisoba bread for her meal.
She is just eating that?
Hmm, How does she maintain that beautiful figure if that is her usual eating habit?
. . . .It’s boiling. My blood is boiling. My Onii-chan blood is fuming.
That’s it! From tomorrow on I’ll make Yurizono a bento everyday.
“I want to eat, but I don’t have any chopsticks. . .”
Yurizono said in a dejected tone, with the shine fading from her eyes.
Well it makes sense. You wouldn’t need chopsticks to eat yakisoba bread.
But there is no reason to look so down. Because-
“Alright Arisu-chan. Use these.”
I handed her some disposable chopsticks.
I came prepared for anything. So I packed some disposable wooden chopsticks. Just in case they needed one.
She grabbed the disposable chopsticks with a smile on her face.
“. . .Geeze. Onee-chan you are too kind.”
She glared and had a scornful face on, but for a second. Just for an instance. I for sure, saw a genuine smile.
Takanashi’s loud trembling voice came up out of nowhere.
“S-So many. There are so many egg rolls. . .yet half of them are gone.”
She said loud, but then her face went pale.
I quickly looked over at my bento, and half of it was gone.
“It’s so amazing.”
Kiniwa said with a smile.
“You guys shouldn’t be stuffing it in your mouth. . .”
Yanomiya-san muttered while she looked with disgust at the person beside me.
I looked over to my right, and- – –
I unintentionally raised a surprised voice.
Like a hamster packing food in her mouths, her cheeks were inflated. Yurizono was happily chowing down on my food.
I just handed you those disposable chopsticks and instantly half of the bento is gone.
I thought that perhaps because she only had yakisoba bread, she had a small appetite. I guess not.
Although it makes me happy. Seeing somebody enjoying my food so much.
Actually this is the first time anybody has enjoyed my food.
Although it was a bit rude to just start eating without any warning, especially before anybody could have some.
Oh, I just remembered. There should be a ticking time bomb to my left. However all she did was give a huge sigh.
“Are you not mad?”
I asked in a whisper to her.
She glared at Yurizono, but then looked back to me.
“If we fight here it will just be troublesome for everybody. Besides. . . .”
Her voice broke off at the end.
“If she is enjoying it that much. . .I can’t get mad at her for that.”
She blushed and then quickly looked away after saying that in a small voice.
“Alice is so sweet.”
I whispered to her as I gently pat her head.
She pouted her lips and looked further away. Although I could see her ears were red, as I stroked her head.
Such a Tsundere.
“Well anyways. Can we eat now?”
“Please, go ahead.”
Everybody took my advice. They exclaimed “Itadakimasu!” and started chowing down on the egg roles.
These people. They really are so nice.
“There really are delicious, aren’t they?!”
“S-so good. . .”
Those three said with their cheeks dyed red. Happily enjoying the meal.
Seems like those three are enjoying it.
“Alice are you not going to eat?”
Alice was just holding an egg roll in here chopsticks. Just looking at it.
She nodded back to me.
“It was just because I wanted everybody to know my Onee-chan was the best in the world first. . .”
And then she said that with a smile.
Alice, you. . .you really are a sweet child.
I unintentionally grabbed her head with both hands, and messed her hair up a bit.
She smiled and giggled while I did it.
“So sweet. Suddenly these egg rolls got really sweet. . .”
“I want to be Amane-chan’s imouto too. . .”
“I need black coffee to balance this sweetness out. . .”
I raised my head because of the sudden comments, and looked at those three. They quickly diverted their looked away while having red faces.
I apologized while scratching the back of my head and smiling, with my face feeling hot.
I guess it’s a pretty embarrassing to be doing that in front of everybody.
Although Yurizono seems strangely quiet. She is just quietly being a hamster, packing food into her mouth.
A few minutes later, all of the egg rolls were gone and everybody got to eat.
*Ahem* ” Well with that done. Time for desert.”
After my fake cough. I took out the steamed pudding and handed one to everybody.
“T-there is more!?”
“Wow! Awesome there is dessert!”
The three of them raised their voices in surprise.
Also it seems like Alice and Yurizono aren’t fighting over the pudding.
“Uuuu. . . So full. . .”
Yurizono, who had the pudding in both of her hands, trembled and complained that. Trying not to puke.
Well if you ate half of all of the egg rolls it will want to come back out.
“Ooo, This is so tasty!”
Meanwhile, Alice is loudly saying, while enjoying her pudding.
“It’s delicious! How is it so delicious!?”
“I-it’s too good. . .”
“Amane! This taste great!”
The three of my friends happily said while patting their stomachs.
It seems like they enjoyed it as well. Onii-chan is happy.
It’s nice to see other people eat my cooking. The only person who every had it was Alice before.
I smiled happily at the people eating my pudding happily.
Lunch went by really peacefully.
After school I was walking with Takanashi-san, and Kiniwa-san as we secretly followed Yanomiya-san who left our class a little a while ago.
Yanomiya was holding her stomach with both hands, and occasionally stopped and looked cautiously around.
She seems to be looking for something.
She went towards the stairs and went into the crack underneath the stairs. She squatted inside of the crack and took out a bad she was hiding around her stomach. She looked restlessly surveyed around her. Once done, she carefully opened the bag- – –
The three of us harmonized our voices.
In the bag were the cookies I made.
I gave the cookies to her at lunch time, and she has been restless ever since then. So once she left class we were all obviously curious about what she needed to do.
She curled her small body in a squat in the corner. Took out a cookie with both hands from the bag. And then, with cheeks dyed red, an audible crunching noise was heard.
She is like a squirrel. Who found a nut. Who then cautiously brought it back to her nest and then started to munch on it.
Haa~ So adorable. I have to make some more for her.
Tiny Translator note.
That was a cute chapter. Seems like Amane is getting her way this time. Yurizono and Alice kinda got along. So cooking seemed to work.Don’t really got much to say.
Next chapter in like 3-5 days.
