"......Hmm, I get the story." (Kanon)

After listening to my story while sitting on the bench, Kanon shoots an intent stare at me through the gap in her sunglasses.
What's that, that makes me feel uncomfortable.

"You were shouldering quite a troublesome burden, huh, more than I imagined." (Kanon)
"It's nothing... not really a big deal." (Rintaro)
"Don't lie to me. If it's not a big deal, then it's strange for you to look like that." (Kanon)
"I do get down sometimes like everyone else." (Rintaro)
"Ah, so you were really feeling down after all." (Kanon)

Kanon smirks teasingly.
Damn it, I fell for her smooth conversation.

"Anyway, it's unacceptable to yell at a girl. Well, no matter how you look at it, it's the other person was at fault......" (Kanon)
"Yeah, I truly regret that." (Rintaro)

Beyond right or wrong, I can't forgive myself.
Yelling and trying to get something your way is what kids do.
Even if high schoolers are still considered children, doing something you know is wrong at any age is just pathetic.
I'm irritated by my childish behavior.

"......Is Rei working today?" (Kanon)
"Huh? Ah, yeah, she should be." (Rintaro)
"Hmm......" (Kanon)

What is she trying to say?
Kanon turns away and fiddles with her hair for a while.

"......Hey." (Kanon)
"What is it?" (Rintaro)
"If you're free anyway, why don't you come to my parents' house now?" (Kanon)
"Huh?" (Rintaro)

In response to her unexpected suggestion, I blurted out in surprise.

"I mentioned earlier that I have to make lunch for my little siblings. It would reduce my workload if you were there, and I'd appreciate your help if possible." (Kanon)
"Hey hey... Wait a minute, aren't I supposed to be the one feeling down from your perspective? Can you really put me to work like this?" (Rintaro)
"Just sitting around here won't calm your mind. For now, get moving! If you stand still, it's over for you." (Kanon)

It may be a far-fetched argument, but I feel it's a very Kanon-like statement.
Maybe I need some sort of forceful push right now.
Just being given a reason to move, even if forced, made the guilt swirling in my chest fade a little.

"......Alright, I'll help." (Rintaro)
"Errr, You may help me to the fullest, okay!" (Kanon)
"Your wording is getting weird you know." (Rintaro)

I stand up from the bench and head to Kanon's parents' house with her.


"......! Big sis brought her boyfriend hoooome!"

Upon arriving at Kanon's parents' house, by the shouting and jumping of a bratty kid――――or rather, a boy about elementary school age.
As if drawn by the boy's shout, two more kids enter running from down the hallway.

"Boyfriend!? Big sis's boyfriend!?"
"Big sis's boyfriend?!"

Two boys and a girl.
These must be Kanon's younger siblings she mentioned.
Upon closer look, all three of them have eyes just like Kanon's.

"He's not my boyfriend! Stop making a scene, you brats!" (Kanon)
"Ahh! Big sis is mad!"
"Big sis is a grump!"
"It's immature to get mad at kids!"
"If you're going to say that, at least say something cuter!" (Kanon)

The kids run away with squeals as Kanon chases after them.
Left behind at the entrance of the old house, I found myself at a loss for what to do.

"――――Oh my... Just when I wondered what all the commotion was about, she brought a friend over." 
"Huh?" (Rintaro)

Suddenly, one of the doors in the hallway opens, and a petite woman appears.
She seems to be in her late thirties.
She then looks at me, clacking her slippers as she walks towards the entrance.

"Umm, Nice to... meet you. I'm Kotone, Kanon's mother." (Kotone)
"Ah, um, I'm Shidou Rintaro. Kanon――――san invited me here today." (Rintaro)
"I see. It's been a while since that girl brought a friend over. Even though it's a simple house, please make yourselves at home." (Kotone)
"......Thank you very much." (Rintaro)
"Since you're just standing there, would you mind waiting in the living room for a bit? I'll go fetch those kids back." (Kotone)

Kotone-san welcomes me into the house and guides me to the living room.
In the neatly arranged living room, there's a large sofa, and I sit down on it.
As I casually glance at the TV in front of the sofa, Kanon, out of breath, along with her younger siblings, comes in from the hallway.

"So-sorry, Rintaro...... for leaving you alone." (Kanon)
"It's not a problem...... Are you okay?" (Rintaro)
"I'm fine, it's just a daily occurrence." (Kanon)

Kanon is worn out, along with her dissatisfied siblings caught by her.
Hearing that this was a daily occurrence, I somehow understood Kanon's caring nature.

"Come on, kids, say hello." (Kanon)

Encouraged by Kanon, the children line up in front of me.

"I'm Akiya, in fourth grade!"
"I'm Fuyuki, in second grade!"
"I'm Haruka, in kindergarten!"

The three of them energetically greet me.
I see, including Kanon's, they have the four seasons in their names. (PTW/N: Kanon [kanji: summer + sound], Akiya [kanji: fall/autumn + (ya/nari)], Fuyuki [kanji: winter + tree], and Haruka [kanji: spring + aroma/fragrance].)
A clever naming by their parents.

"I'm Shidou Rintaro, a friend of your sister. I'm a sophomore in high school...... Nice to meet you." (Rintaro)
"Nice to meet you! Rintaro!" (Akiya)
""Rintaro!"" (Fuyuki, Haruka)
"......" (Rintaro)

To suddenly being called by my first name.
Well, that's fine.

"Have you cleared up the misunderstanding about the being a boyfriend thing?" (Rintaro)
"Yeah, I've made it clear to them." (Kanon)

Kanon gives a thumbs up.
Looking at her, she must have made it clear to them.
I'm an only child, so I don't understand it, but taking care of children seems to be tough.

"Rintaro! What did you come here with big sis for today?" (Akiya)
"Hmm? Ah, I think we were going to cook for lunch." (Rintaro)
"Lunch!?" (Akiya)

Upon hearing the word "lunch," Akiya's eyes widen.

"Can Rintaro cook?!" (Akiya)
"Well, I live alone, so I can." (Rintaro)
"What an adult!" (Akiya)

For some reason, Akiya starts getting excited, and the other two join in the excitement.

"Meal! It's a meal!" (Fuyuki)
"Lunch meal! I'm hungry!" (Haruka)

As the children bounce around excitedly, I feel bewildered, and Kanon sighs beside me.

"Sigh... they're at that age where just mentioning 'meal' gets this reaction. They're noisy, aren't they?" (Kanon)
"Haha, nope, I'm actually grateful that they seem to have a great appetite." (Rintaro)
"I see, you're that type of person, huh......" (Kanon)

As we're having such a conversation, Kotone-san, who had gone to call Kanon and the children earlier, enters the living room.
For some reason, she looks a bit tired.

"Sigh... they're always making a mess and never clean up after themselves, geez." (Kotone)

――――I see, so she has been cleaning up after the children made a mess.

"Mama, I'll use the kitchen with Rintaro." (Kanon)
"Huh? Rintaro-kun will help with cooking too?" (Kotone)
"Yup, his cooking is tastier than what you can find around here, so look forward to it." (Kanon)
"Oh, I'm looking forward to it." (Kotone)

I want to say not to get their hopes up, but well, if Kanon says it, I don't feel bad about it.
Leaving the children to Kotone-san, I head to the kitchen with Kanon.
The kitchen, filled with signs of use, has all the necessary cooking utensils, reflecting Kotone-san's meticulous nature.

"Sorry about this...... but can I leave everything about what to cook to you?" (Kanon)
"Should I really do it? Weren't you the one planning to cook originally?" (Rintaro)
"Don't worry about it. It's not like I particularly enjoy cooking, so it's easier if someone else does it." (Kanon)
"You're pretty straightforward, don't you." (Rintaro)
"It would be more suspicious if I kept it a secret, right?" (Kanon)
"I guess you're right." (Rintaro)
"For now, I'll help out. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just something quick to make." (Kanon)
"Yeah, got it." (Rintaro)

Something to fill the children's stomachs.
There is only a dish that comes to mind that can meet that request.

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.
