Love so Life Chapter 30
(You eat a strawberry from the stem on.)
(The sweetness is said to stay in your mouth then!)
Takeru-kun has another sister besides Mana-chan?
Yeah, I haven't meet her in a while though... // In the past, we played together quite often----
I think she's in middle school now.
Is that so! (Sounds fun)
Reminds me, I saw Takeru-kun today...
Ah, // Takeru-kun, hello~
On your way to Sei-chan's house?
My? // Aoi, did your hair grow longer? (You'll get mistaken for a girl.)
Ah... Y- You think so...? // I was too scared to cut it for him...
(What should I do...)
(Usually I have the Teacher at the day-care center cut it....)
(But that teacher is on holiday right now...)
(Eh----!?) Then, shall I cut it?
Tomorrow.... at around 4 p.m. Are you at Sei-chan's place then?
Y- Yes, I am.
Good! Then I'll bring all things needed!!
(Ah,) But we need to ask Matsunaga-san----
----Is how it turned out.
Ah---- It grew long for sure.
(And it's growing quite wild)
I have no confidence in my cutting skills... // So shall we leave it up to him.
(And at the parlour he always cries.)
(Scared because he moves)
In the past, Takeru did quite the horrible things to his sister's hair, without having an evil intend,
but I'm sure the experience made him better.
Aoi-kun, tomorrow Takeru-kun will make your hair look cool-
(Isn't that nice <3)
Yes! You'll transform! Isn't that great!
Mom, where's Mana-chan?
She's over at Matsunaga-san's house with Takeru.
Takeru was saying something about cutting Aoi-chan's hair.
WHY DIDN'T YOU STOP HIM----!?
Takeru-kun, // is this height good enough?
let us proceed.
Get away // from Aoi-kun!!
Oh! How rare for you to tag along, Nanami~
Wrong!! Listen to what I say!!
Is she his other sister...!?
What are you going to mess with the head of a stranger!?
Don't worry. It's not like he'll lose anything.
(For boys even a bald head is fine)
He'll lose!! // Because it'll only turn into a disaster if you take up the scissors!!
Besides... How dare you to continue like nothing happened // when you failed so many times on my head....!!
(Crimes behind their parent's back)
Umm... Nanami-chan...? (Can I call you that?)
Forgive me to burst in so suddenly....
Thank you for always taking care of my brother....!
N- No, likewise here...!
I'm Nakamura Shiharu.
I'm Aoi-kun and Akane-chan's babysitter. // Nice to meet you.
What a perfect....
*cut* // *cut*
Hey! Who told you to start!?
It's fine, isn't it. It seems to bother Aoi.
Nanami-chan, how about we let him try?
(Sorry, I used your Alice band, Nanami-chan)
(And it broke)
(N- Nanami, this letter is from a boy...!?)
Give it back---!!
(Fufu, today it's red rice <3) [Red Rice gets served on occasions that need celebrating]
What are you happy for!?
Ah // don't move, Aoi! (It's dangerous!)
A bit more.
Got tired of it.
(Ah, ) Aoi-kun!
Here, look! A doll play!
(Hello, I'm Mr.Rabbit)
Look, isn't it cool.
(How you look it, Mr. Customer.)
Wah--- You feel better now, right Aoi-kun! // Looks good on you!
Aren't you glad. // Now say your thanks to Takeru.
(Okay,) Shall we go home?
Nanami, Mana, let's go.
Hey, Mana! That hair tie is mine! // Give it back!
(It matches with my friend)
S- Sorry. Takeru must have tied this.
You're not at fault....
but I suddenly take it away. Sorry.
Tch, what's with you. Allow at least this much. You're too stingy, Nanami----
Wha- // H- How cruel...
(What's with her...)
Why do I have to be called stingy.
Can I... stay here for a while?
Since long he's been like that...
An idiot, selfish, no delicacy, not reading the atmosphere...!
Was there... // some bad cause...?
Will you listen to this...
It was when I was in 4th grade. I had a memo pad with cute pages I liked quite a lot...
I treasured it so much, I didn't use a single page...
A colourful memo pad.
I have a bad feeling about this...
(Uwa, for real---!? Amazing---!)
scribbled useless stuff on all pages with a ball pen----
And if I said
Eh? But it was just laying around.
I was "saving" it.
(Besides, does only really start to scribble on a pad found in someone else's room?)
(Y- Yeah, you're right....)
What should I do. She's really angry about this.
But it's just too cute!
Ah, (Matsunaga-san.) // Welcome back.
----Ah... // Nanami-chan? Long time no see!
(Sei-tan, welcome back~~)
Sorry for intruding...
(Wah) He's as handsome as ever---
You got so big when I didn't see you~~~
I'm in kind of a fight with Takeru... // Can I stay here for a bit...?
Oh really? I don't mind...
You see, Takeru---
Ah... // can be a bit awkward.
(Sei-chan...) You can just call him an "idiot" (It's so obvious)
He's looking after Mana properly...
but with me he was so tenacious and shallow.
just because he had no experience back then. // You were his first little sister after all...
He might have not shown it good
but he kept taking care of you, not noticing you didn't like it, // because he couldn't help it since you're so cute.
(Ah,) You two, before sleeping, clean up your toys.
(Tricking her with a smile)
Oh, no, where is my house?
How strange. Where is my parking lot.
(Amazing! You're amazing!)
(Wah, it's so clean now!)
You can write hiragana already!
Are you a genius!?
it's about time to go home...
I'll send you off.
(Hey...) What are you doing!
(You'll get arrested)
B- But you weren't coming home at all.
(I was lonely)
(Don't you mean "worried")
Let's get home!
(Sorry to have bothered you....)
Did you fight with your brother, too Matsunaga-san?
Of course... // We were both boys around the same age after all....
No holding back
(I don't remember why anymore though)
I have never experienced it
but having a sibling you can fight with
sure is nice.
