"Oh, are you going home now?" (Kotone)
"Yes, Sorry I've been troubling here quite a while." (Rintaro)
"Oh, not at all... Rather, I wish you could've stayed until evening." (Kotone)

Having finished preparing to leave, I paid my goodbyes to Kotone-san and the kids.
She told me to stay until night, but it was already getting quite dark outside.
With winter approaching, the days were shorter.
If I stayed any longer, I'd leave when it was completely dark, and I didn’t want it.

"Mama, Rintaro lives alone now, so he has a lot to do at home. We shouldn't keep him too long." (Kanon)
"Yes... you're right." (Kotone)
"Since the timing is good, I'll go home with him too. We live in the same apartment building after all." (Kanon)
"What, you're leaving too, Kanon? That'd be so lonely." (Kotone)
"I'll come back again. It's tough for you to take care of the kids all by yourself, right?" (Kanon)
"Well, that's true......" (Kotone)

Kotone-san smiles wryly.
Kanon, like me, is heading back to our apartment and has already finished her preparations.
I put on my shoes next to her and glance back down the hallway.

"Come again, Rintaro!"
"Come again!"
"See you next time!"
"Yeah, next time." (Rintaro)

Waving to the children, I leave the house with Kanon.
Outside, the sun is setting, and the air is quite cool.
Given the circumstances, it isn't a bad idea to go home with her.
It's getting dark early, and it's certainly safer than letting her walk home alone.

"Those brats have really taken a liking to you, Rintaro. They'll sulk if you don't come again." (Kanon)
"Is it really okay to visit someone's house that often, eh......" (Rintaro)
"I'm usually not at home, but if Mama and those brats said it's fine,  then it's fine, right? Besides, I could bring you along every time I go back." (Kanon)
"Haha, you sound like a girl eager to introduce her boyfriend to her family." (Rintaro)
"Ugh......" (Kanon)

The moment I say that, Kanon suddenly stops in her tracks.
When I turn back curiously, she is showing an embarrassed look, just like before.
I don't know what, but something feels off.

"What's with you, since a while ago?" (Rintaro)
"Well... you're really a sinful guy, you know that?" (Kanon)
"Huh?" (Rintaro)
"――――Hey." (Kanon)

Kanon's eyes are fixed on me.
Seeing her serious gaze, I can't help but feel the atmosphere change.

"What do you... think of Rei?" (Kanon)
"......" (Rintaro)

A breeze blows, and Kanon's twin-tails sway.
I'm unable to respond immediately.
And after a few moments, I open my mouth.

"No idea. Honestly, I don't know." (Rintaro)
"You don't know? ......Are you serious? From the way you two act, it's obvious to anyone――――" (Kanon)
"I'm not knowing what I don't know. Maybe it's more accurate to say I pretend not to notice." (Rintaro)
"......" (Kanon)

I pretend not to notice.
I spit it out myself, but those words were terribly on point.
It's just an excuse, but to begin with, Rei is a girl with such fine visuals that she has come to be known as a national idol.
Seeing her almost every day, living together, it would be unhealthy not to have any feelings for her.
I might be attracted to her.
But the more I pursue these feelings, the harder it will be for me.
Otosaki Rei, as a member of MilleSta, must not have the presence of a man in her.
To protect her dreams, I must stay in a position where I can easily make excuses if the worst happens.

So, I try not to feel anything.

This applies not only to Rei but also to Mia and Kanon.
If I were to ruin their dreams, I’d regret it more than anything in the world.

I wish I had never met them――――.

I absolutely didn't want it to turn out like that.

"......Hmmm, so it's not like you're not going to declare that you love Rei?" (Kanon)
"Huh? Y-yeah, I guess." (Rintaro)
"I see, well then, it’s too soon to give up. I wasted my effort trying to give up." (Kanon)

Kanon says that while stepping closer to me.

"I thought it’d be rude to interfere if things were already settled, but if things are not, that’s a different story, then." (Kanon)
"......What are you talking about?" (Rintaro)
"Nothing. You'll understand eventually, so don't worry about it." (Kanon)

Kanon has a triumphant look on her face as she closes the distance even more.
She then places her index finger on my lips, smiling mischievously.

"This is a declaration of war, Rintaro!" (Kanon)
"Again...... What are you talking about?" (Rintaro)
"Fufu! It was so unlike me to just give up. If I want something, I should fight for it!" (Kanon)
"......?" (Rintaro)

I can’t keep up with her train of talk at all.
But it seems something has started and concluded in her mind.
No matter how much I push, she isn’t going to tell me what it is now.

"What are you standing there for, Rintaro? Let's go home right away!" (Kanon)
"A-ah, okay......" (Rintaro)

Kanon pulls me by my arm, and we start walking toward our apartment.
Being alone with her like this is risky, but does she understand this situation?
――――Well, it's Kanon after all.
Knowing her, she probably has taken all the necessary precautions.
The area is nearly deserted, and she's at least minimally disguised.
Her professionalism as an idol is part of her charm.
Whoever marries her will likely have a stable life, despite being under her thumb.
That sounds like a very enviable situation.


After Rintaro stormed out, at the Shidou Group headquarters.
Shidou Yuutaro was in his office, checking and approving documents, he suddenly glanced at the digital clock on his desk.
His work schedule was planned down to the minute. According to the schedule, his break was approaching, but he frowned at his slower-than-usual progress.
Of course, he had originally planned his schedule with plenty of time to spare, so a little delay would not be an obstacle.
However, the fact that something unusual was happening caused him some mild discomfort.

In such a situation, there was a sudden knock at his office door.

"Hmm... enter." (Yuutaro)
"Excuse me, sir."
"Sofia, huh?" (Yuutaro)

Yutaro looked up as his secretary, Sofia, entered.

"Tenguuji Yuzuka-sama has left. It seems she made contact with several departments to facilitate future cooperation between our groups." (Sofia)
"I see. If the discussions with the other party are deemed beneficial, inform the departments to proceed independently. The leaders of each department are more knowledgeable about their respective areas than I am. They can decide whether to proceed or not." (Yuutaro)
"Understood." (Sofia)

As Yuutarou contemplated the business collaboration with the Tenguuji Group, he let out a small sigh.
He stood up from his office chair, moved, and stood by the large window, where the setting sun was visible.

"......The current performance of the Tenguuji Group, as I recall, is in a steady decline." (Yuutaro)
"Yes. At the very least, it's not a company we need to proactively seek a partnership with." (Sofia)
"They came specifically to propose an engagement with Rintaro, likely to lean on our foundation." (Yuutaro)

From a general perspective, the Tenguuji Group was still a major corporation.
Even if its performance was declining, that was from the standpoint of the ever-growing Shidou Group, and it was still one of the leading companies in the country.
However, looking ten or twenty years ahead.
As Yuzuka and Rintaro's generation takes over, the situation might change.
The Shidou Group did not need the Tenguuji Group, but the Tenguuji Group’s need for the Shido Group was clear.

"......As your secretary, I apologize for my forwardness, but I believe a partnership with the Tenguuji Group could still be beneficial to our company. I mentioned that it’s not worth us proposing, but if they approach us, it could be advantageous. Perhaps we could ask Rintaro-sama to cooperate a bit more――――" (Sofia)
"That's unnecessary." (Yuutaro)
"......!" (Sofia)

Sofia fell silent, her suggestion immediately rejected.

"......I apologize for overstepping." (Sofia)
"That's fine...... You can leave now. I’ll handle the rest." (Yuutaro)
"I can't leave before you, sir." (Sofia)
"......" (Yuutaro)

Yuutaro glanced at the insubordinate employee.
Sofia looked straight back at him, standing resolutely.
It seemed she wouldn’t budge no matter what he said.
Realizing it was futile to argue, Yuutaro turned his back to her and let out a small sigh.

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.
And on a certain day, two of these creatures meet.
