Akuyaku Reijo no Otouto - Chapter 6
I was expecting Sambac to show his face, so I froze in surprise. My eyes widened as I stared at the beautiful person.
“I-is that you, Toru?” the person greets me peacefully.
When I was confused, Sambac came out in a hurry, “Root-sama!”
“Brother…” I looked at him as if to ask for help. “Ah…Toru, this is the second prince of this country, Lord Root Valerian. Introduce yourself,” he said.
(Oh! You have such a person in the house?)
“Ah… nice to meet you. I’m Toru Balsam.”
Upon introducing myself he then replied, “It’s nice to meet you too. I’m Root Valerian.”
“Toru, what’s going on? I thought you were playing with Bluemary?”
“…Yeah….now it’s my turn to hide…”
It’s not something I would say in this atmosphere, but it can’t be helped…
Then Root-sama asked, “Are you playing hide and seek?”
“Yes. What do you think?”
Suddenly he suggested, “Then you can hide in Sambac’s room!”
“That… I don’t know…”
Sambac looked at Root-sama with a look wondering what he was saying. “Root-sama, aren’t you planning to have an important talk with me now…?”
But Root-sama said, “Okay, it’s okay. I’ll get into the intricacies of the matter later. I can’t do without this cute little brother. I’m sure you’ll be able to find out more about it later.”
I’m not going to be able to say that I can’t do that, but I’m going to say that I’m going to do it.
(TLNote: My brains…)
Suddenly Root-sama picked me up in his arms. I involuntarily clung to Root-sama’s neck.
The usually calm Sambac was surprised by that, “Root-sama!” I was also surprised.
“I’ve been wanting to have a younger brother~” Root-sama didn’t seem bothered. I sat down on the couch with my knees in a very easy-going manner. I’m not sure what to do, but I just stared at Root-sama for the moment.
“You can find a number of different types of shoes and boots in the market”
“It’s good, Root-sama.”
“Yes, that’s good. Then this too.”
And with that, Root-sama continues to feed me like he’s feeding a baby bird. It’s good to have an idea of what you’re looking for.
But as for the hide-and-seek, Bluemary didn’t come looking for me at all…
I didn’t notice it earlier because I was so engrossed in the sweets Root-sama was carrying, but it’s been quite a while.
I finally finished my sweets and had them lowered from my lap. “Sis-sama, you’re late…” I mutter to myself.
”Maybe Bluemary dares to avoid you because she knows it’s my room?”
I huffed as I replied to Sambac, “I didn’t even think about that!”
“Well, I’m gonna go find her. Root-sama, brother, if you’ll excuse me!”
I hurriedly ran out into the hallway.
Then, from a distance, “I found Toru!!!” I hear Bluemary’s voice say. I reply reassuringly, and Bluemary rushes over to me with great vigor.
“Were you in Brother’s room, Sambac? I’m not gonna find you there! If people were to come, I can’t go in.” She was a little frustrated and angry.
“I’m sorry, sister. I just happened to meet Brother’s guest (which is a lie) and he let me in.”
“…Really? Then I don’t blame you! By the way, who is this visitor?”
And when I was about to open my mouth, “Nice to meet you.” His voice came. Bluemary froze in surprise, just as I did.
Root-sama is introducing himself to Bluemary, just as he did earlier to me. Bluemary was blushing, but she responded to it.
After separating from Root-sama, we visited Bluemary’s room.
”Root-sama is an amazing person…”
”Yes, he is.”
“…Okay, that’s it! I’ll ask Father to recommend you as Root-sama’s fiancée!”
I rolled my eyes at Bluemary’s outlandish statement.
