After dinner, I help Hatsumi wash the dishes while Mio lounges around watching television. She seems particularly interested in reality dating shows, but mainly for its drama.
“I don’t get it. Why don’t they just have a huge f****** orgy and get over themselves? Why fight for one person when you can have each other all at once?” Mio complains, eyes glued to the television.
“Sorry to break your bubble, but most of that is scripted.” I tell her.
“What?! Then why not put an orgy in the script?”
“Hahh… that’s not the point…”
Hatsumi and I finish wiping the last plate. She turns to me and asks, “Alrighty. Now how about we take a bath together?”
“Er, no. I’ll take one myself later.”
She frowns, “But we haven’t bathed together in forever. Let your big sis wash your back!”
“Argh, stop! I don’t want to take a bath with you. I’m old enough to take one by myself.” And she will find out I’m a girl the moment I get naked.
Mio tosses the remote onto the sofa and hops out of it. “Oh, oh! I’ll take a bath with you, Hatsumi!”
“Mio?!” The thought crosses my mind of what they would do together in a closed room.
“Well, if Saeko doesn’t want to…” My sis ponders with a sad expression. “Sure! We can catch up on so much. I’ll go get the bath running right now.”
“Ah!” Hatsumi stops halfway and comes back, “I almost forgot to mention, since you’ll be staying with us I took the liberty of preparing the guest room for you.”
“Oooh! You’re the best, Hatsumi!” Mio says enthusiastically.
When Hatsumi leaves, I grab Mio’s arm before she can follow after her. “I hope you’re not planning on doing anything with Hatsumi.”
“Oh, you worrywart. We’re just going to wash ourselves and have some girls’ talk!”
“Like… what?” I dread to imagine.
“Teehee. Oh, this isn’t for a boy to hear!” Mio pulls away from my grasp and exits the living room.
I look up at the ceiling in what feels like another series of defeat against Mio. “Why do I have a bad feeling about this?”
Mio and Hatsumi have been in the bathroom for ten minutes minutes now. I sneak into the hallway and press my ear against the door. It sounds like they have already rinsed and are just soaking in the tub. Their voices are clear as day from the echoey bathroom.
“Oh, my! Mio, you have such a wonderful figure. I bet you’re popular with everyone at school.” I hear Hatsumi say.
“You’re surprisingly stacked under all those clothes. How do you hide all that under a bra?” Mio says in return.
Suddenly the water splashes, and I hear Hatsumi yelp in surprise. I press my ear harder against the door to listen.
What the heck are you doing to my sister?!
“Hatsumi, you have a boyfriend, don’t you?” Mio asks, “I bet he can’t keep his hands off you!”
“Wait, Mio! That tickles— ahaha…! Kotaro and I are in a very loving relationship. He respects me too much to lay his hands on me without permission.”
“Ehh?? What a waste. If I was your boyfriend, I’d eat you right up—”
I can’t take anymore of it and knock on the bathroom door to get their attention. “Uhmm… h-how much longer are you going to be in there? I’d like to wash up, too!”
“Saeko? Come in! Mio and I will help rinse you up.” Hatsumi tries to tempt me to go inside with her again.
Mio joins in and says, “Yeah, the tub’s big enough for all three of us.”
“N-no, thanks. I’ll just… wait.”
I lay in my bed alone in my room for once. Mio is downstairs back to her reality dating show, and Hatsumi is preparing for her university exams.
Speaking of university, one more year and I’ll be going to college. I need to start thinking seriously about my life, whether I want to start working right after high school or go to university like Hatsumi.
Our parents always wanted me to get a higher education like sis, so I’ve kind of accepted that as my natural course. If or when I graduate high school, would I still be a succubus? That means I’d be going into university as a succubus…
If I can barely keep my sanity as a third year in high school, how will I survive university where everyone’s dating freely?!
Mio comes diving through my door and jumps into my bed, knocking the manga out of my hands. “Wha—? I was reading that!”
“Forget about the book, let’s have some fun!”
“Again?! How much is enough for you??”
“Come on, you know you like it!” Mio begs.
Her puppy dog eyes almost convince me. However, after having sex earlier and sucking Yuuto’s dick my sexual energy is restored, and I’m more impervious to her temptations. “No, not today. You’ve been taking me for a joy ride for two days now. Just let me read manga in peace!”
“Tch, fine. I’ll go badger some random bum in the street.” She says, opening the window.
“You better not cause any trouble out there!”
“Nnngh… ” I wake up to the sound of something hitting my balcony window. “When did I fall asleep… “
I look over at the sliding door to my balcony currently obscured by the curtains. Something or someone is tapping from the other side.
Maybe it’s Mio?
I check the clock and it reads 1:30 AM.
Crap. Am I going to be able to fall back asleep?
“Alright, I’m coming…”
I wearily head over to the balcony, pull the curtains to one side, and slide the door open to Kana’s face. “Eh?”
“Kana? What are you doing here so late?” I ask but receive no answer except a gaping mouth. He has a confused expression on his face. The kind that is trying to make sense of an unexpected situation. I scratch my head at his confusion, and my fingers brush against the horns.
Then it struck me.
THE ILLUSION SPELL WORE OFF AT THE END OF THE DAY.
