Act 3 - The School Festival

20-5 


I return to my room with Kanon, and Rei, who has remained in the living room, look at us with a surprised look.

"Hn, Why is Kanon with Rintaro?" (Rei)
"We ran into each other at the entrance. I met her at the entrance. She looked tired, so I thought I'd treat her to a little something special I've been preparing for a little while." (Rintaro)
"A special treat?" (Rei)
"I had originally planned to save it for tomorrow, though――――" (Rintaro)

I encourage Kanon to sit down on the couch and open the refrigerator.

"I wonder what this something special actually is? Do you have any clue of it, Kanon?" (Rei)
"I just followed him a few minutes ago, so I don't have any clue. But the nuance seems to be that it's something that will relieve your fatigue......." (Kanon)
"I see......." (Rei)

While listening to their conversation, I take out a jar filled with a golden liquid from the refrigerator.
The yellow-peeled fruit is sliced thin and soaked in the liquid beautifully.

"This is my favorite. The lemon pickled in honey." (Rintaro)
""OOH......."" (Rei, Kanon)

Their exclamations of admiration overlap.
I put it on the table in front of them, and they both begin to observe the contents of the jar.

"I was actually going to let them soak until tomorrow, but I thought it was already aged enough. Besides, I also wanted to see what it tasted like, so why don't you two be my test subjects?" (Rintaro)
"I'd love to try it. At this point, it already looks delicious." (Rei)
"I was also surprised at how much prettier it looked than I thought it would be. Alright, time to give these a try." (Rintaro)

I hand out plates to both of them and each picks a slice of lemon from the jar.
And almost simultaneously, they put them in their mouths and their eyes widened.

"Whoa......th-this is too good!" (Kanon)
"So good......!" (Rei)

I'm silently nodding at Kanon and Rei's impressions.
The sweetness of the honey perfectly compensates for the sourness and bitterness of the peel.
And while it is sweet, the lemon's unique cool, refreshing sensation seems to be addictive.

――――And for your information.

All of the lemons used in this recipe were local.
Although the price is a little expensive, there is a good reason why we went to the trouble of using domestically grown lemons.
First of all, there is little possibility of pesticides adhering to the peel.
Lemons imported from overseas must be stored for a long time, and measures are taken to prevent them from spoiling.
I honestly felt uneasy about pickling the lemon that contained additives on it.
Therefore, I decided to use local lemons that could be pickled as they are.

On a related note, if it was difficult to obtain local lemons, I could use foreign lemons with no problem if I just peeled the yellow peel off the surface with a peeler or the like.
It would be more work to do, but it would also shave off some of the bitter, cottony bits in the peel and make it easier to pickle.

――――Well, that's enough for trivia.

I get up and head for the kitchen.
Then I take out three glasses and fill each a half full of ice.
After carrying the ice-filled glass to the table, I put the carbonated water I have chilled in the refrigerator to them.

"Put two spoons of honey in the glass half-filled with ice. Then top it off with the carbonated water...... and for the finishing touch, put a pickled lemon on top....... Voila, your lemon honey squash is ready." (Rintaro)
""WHOA!"" (Rei, Kanon)

Rei and Kanon's excitement levels are skyrocketing, and their sparkling eyes were directed at the glasses.
If I prepare the second serving in the same way, we will have enough lemon squash for three.

"The actual fact is, I wish I could have made this when summer was in full swing, but I genuinely forgot about to do....... Well, forget about that and just drink these." (Rintaro)

The three of us all slurp down our lemon squash.
The lemon aroma infiltrate the nose, the sweetness of honey on the tongue, and the refreshing feeling of carbonated water are pleasantly mixed together and surprised me.

"Delish......!" (Kanon)
"Second!" (Rei)
"What, already." (Rintaro)

Aside from Kanon, who had just returned home, Rei, who had been eating and drinking a lot of things earlier, wanted a refill was somewhat out of place.
To be frank, it's a little late for that.

"It can't be helped......." (Rintaro)

But I'm still happy to hear they praise that something I put so much time and effort into is delicious.
With a wry smile on my face, I make lemon squash once again.

"Ah, I made it based on the default recipe for now, but if you want to make any adjustments, feel free to use the contents of the jar. You can try making the taste a bit stronger or even add the carbonated water to make it stronger." (Rintaro)
"Then I'll add a teaspoon more of it!" (Kanon)

After handing her a spoon to put the honey in, I'm surprised.
Next to Kanon, who is adding the honey in high spirits, I find Rei gulping down the lemon squash with the same momentum as before.
Seriously, what the heck with this lass' stomach dimension? It's too big.

"......*Burp*." (Rei)
"H-hey!? Is it appropriate for idols to burp!? Have some self-awareness! Self-awareness!" (Kanon)
"I'm sorry. I let my guard down." (Rei)
"Well, it's like the fizz in carbonated drinks just escape...... You're going to give such an analogy, right?" (Kanon) (PTW/N: this part is hard)
"That's your exaggerated interpretation. Kanon was bombing." (Rei) (PTW/N: this as well)
"I wasn't trying to be funny!" (Kanon)

She is a girl who perfectly suits the voice of "Grrrr!" no matter what.

"Even you don't like women who burp in front of you, right, Rintaro?" (Kanon)
"Huh? ......No, I don't mind. It's normal for women to burp and fart, right? So, it's okay." (Rintaro)
"Idiot! Idols don't burp! They don't even go to the bathroom!" (Kanon)
"Which era are you come from?" (Rintaro)

I can't help but laugh at Kanon, who starts talking like a troublesome old-fashioned fan.
I have to say that she has a high level of professionalism, but it'll be nice if she can loosen up at least a little bit in a situation like this.
Well, it's not my place to say that.

"Anyway! Rei, be a little more careful! Your selling point is your mysterious beauty, and if you start burping, you'll lose all your fans at once!" (Kanon)
"......You may be right. I'll be more careful." (Rei)
"Good!" (Kanon)

Kanon nods in a grand manner to her response and then sips on her newly made lemon squash.
She is, after all, the most serious person in terms of work.
Normally, Kanon is a noisy and teasable character, but if you ask who is the most respected person in MilleSta, her name will most likely be mentioned.

"Oh, speaking of which, Rintaro. I heard you've been practicing an instrument recently?" (Kanon)
"Hmm? Yeah, I agreed to help out a little with the festival. I'm going to play bass in a three-piece band." (Rintaro)
"Hmm......." (Kanon)
"Is there a problem with that?" (Rintaro)
"No, if you don't mind, how about practicing with us?" (Kanon)
"Practicing with you...... you mean, in a band?" (Rintaro)
"That's what I mean." (Kanon)

Kanon glances at Rei and ruffles her head.

"Au......" (Rei)
"We were discussing of trying it as a hobby between Mia and me, but this girl wasn't enthusiastic at all about it." (Kanon)
"Because...... I prefer singing to playing instruments." (Rei)
"Well, that itself is not a problem. We didn't want to force anything either. The discussion ended when Rei said she wouldn't play the bass, but I thought if you could play the bass, this girl would only have to sing, so we brought this up again." (Kanon)

As she says so, Kanon gives me a somewhat expectant look.

"...... From what you just said, I can deduce you and Mia have experience with musical instruments, can't I?" (Rintaro)
"I've never played in front of an audience, though. I like to play the guitar, so I practiced by myself, and Mia played the drums for a while to relieve stress." (Kanon)

It may be somewhat surprising, but it's not really strange.
Certainly, the sound of the drums feels good, and it's imaginable that the more skillful you are at playing them, the more exhilarating it feels.

"Are you okay, Rei?" (Rintaro)
"Yes. It seems fun to do something like that together." (Rei)

It seems that Rei is also interested in it.

"This month, we're getting quite a bit more time off because of your school festival, and if you're willing to cooperate, I'll learn the songs that you're practicing so we can play together. What do you think of it, Rintaro? I don't think it's a bad condition." (Kanon)
"...... Yeah. There's no reason for me to refuse either." (Rintaro)
"Then it's settled. I'll let Mia know." (Kanon)

Kanon looks truly happy and immediately pulls out her phone and begins texting in Line.
A band with three national idols, huh?
Lately, I feel like I've become able to honestly enjoy this situation.

Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing, I still don't know yet.

At a certain time, there are creatures that walk by two feet. These creatures can be divided into two by gender. These creatures are surprisingly able to pick something using things called hands.
