Sana and the Infirmary
◆ Sanada Sana ◆
“Hey, hey, earlier, you tried to split apart the two customers who were stuck together, right? Why did you do that?”
Nacchan was grinning within the darkness. She came again…!? How many does this make…!?
Nacchan was most likely talking about when Nii-san, Sensei, and Nacchan came in together.
“Sana doesn’t know what you’re talking about. It seems you don’t want to enjoy this the normal way, so just get out.”
“Aah, sorry, sorry. That wasn’t my intention at all.”
“Get out already!”
Nii-san, of all the people, why Sensei… She was hugging him so tightly! H-h-h-her b-b-b-reasts were touching him…! Well, Nii-san wasn’t that flustered so it might be okay.
Grabbing her by the shoulders, I pushed Nacchan out the exit. After knocking the correct amount of times, the back door to the classroom unlocked and opened. When I do this, it notifies the person in charge outside of an emergency.
“Sana-chan? How long are you going to be working? Didn’t you start at one? It’s already past five you know?”
The hallway had become dark since dusk was approaching, and the lights were turned on. Since they didn’t want to spoil any new customers, I was wearing a sports jersey, and a black hood over my head. There were barely any customers, and it was only Nacchan repeatedly coming in and out.
“… The other person on shift, is slacking… and so Sana can’t help but to continue…”
In truth, it was planned for me to end at four along with Nii-san. The person that was supposed to switch with me, was definitely flirting with her boyfriend and going around the school festival…
“How about I switch with you?”
“I’ve already pretty much copied everything. Rather, if it’s just that, wouldn’t it be fine if it was a guy?”
Nacchan, despite her bad personality, she’s a good person??
“The clothing is meant for a girl to wear.”
“Is that so? You see, I wanted to try being the one to scare people.”
“Ummm, then… can it be left to you?”
“Yeah. Leave it to me.”
I explained the situation to the boys in charge at the back of the haunted house. The people back there also recognized Nacchan, who had looped the attraction multiple times, and gave the okay.
“Kanata-chan… I think… is probably in the home economics room.”
Now that I think about it, I haven’t prepared tomorrow’s curry.
While taking off the costume in the darkness, I change back into my uniform. I then handed over the costume to Nacchan and had her change.
“Uhah. It’s so warm. It smells like Sana-chan.”
“Hey! Be quiet and just change!”
She goes to some ladies’ school, and she’s Sensei’s little sister, but her character is completely off. She’s easier to get along with than some rich lady-like persona, so it’s fine though.
“Might as well show my gratefulness… Thank you, Nacchan.”
See you, she sent me off as I walked down the hall towards the home economics room.
From the grounds outside the window, lights glowed at fixed intervals in front of every store, making it feel like a night market.
“Nii-san… I wonder where he is…?”
While walking I operated my cell phone and called Nii-san.
“If there’s anything he wants, I’ll buy it for him.”
… It’s not like I’m doing this for Nii-san in particular, it’s just because it’s convenient. It’s only because it’s on the way. After all, I wouldn’t want to be told something like, “Couldn’t you have bought me some takoyaki on the way?”
At the same time the ringing began, I heard a ringtone from elsewhere.
It was from the infirmary situated just beside the home economics room. Earlier, Nacchan said something like, “Haru-chan’s hips gave out and she couldn’t stand so she’s resting in the infirmary,” or so I remember. I heard the ringing on my phone forcefully be cutoff, and the ringtone from inside also stopped.
I put my hand on the door and started to enter.
Once I opened the door, there didn’t seem like there was anyone inside. Did he maybe leave his cellphone here and forgot it…? If that’s the case, I should pick it up for him.
Among the three beds, one had the curtain closed. Nii-san is supposed to be here… Sensei is also supposed to be here… Since I started imagining some weird things, I shook my head vigorously.
“Nii-san, are you sleeping?”
I slid open the curtain, and there was Sensei, lying on her side.
Then where’s Nii—
“Hey, what are you doing?”
I let out a voice of surprise when I heard someone talk to me from behind. Turning back, Nii-san was there.
“W-w-what is it, appearing all of a sudden like that.”
“Sensei is tired, so she’s sleeping. Alright? There were preparations for the curry yesterday, and even the store management for today. She’s done quite a bit of work.”
… I do understand that, but somehow, I don’t like it.
“Hmmm, is that so.”
After closing the curtain, we sat down on the sofa placed in the center of the infirmary.
“You’ve been acting as a ghost this whole time, right?”
“That’s right. Nii-san was way too scared there. Sana really had my fill of that.”
“You were quite good at it after all.”
“——W-what are you saying all of a sudden…”
Even though he’s normally so indifferent. Tsundere Nii-san.
“Didn’t you call earlier? Is there something you need from me?”
“… Sana thought she would buy something from the stands, and was wondering whether you had anything you wanted.”
“You’re being quite thoughtful today.”
“That’s not true… I’m normally very thoughtful.”
“If that’s the case, since Sensei is sleeping, why don’t we go?”
“Eh? Together? R-really… Nii-san, what a siscon you are… Going around the stands with your little sister… an unprecedented level of a siscon.”
“I’m not a siscon. Hey, Sana… your face is red, you know?”
I stood by Nii-san, who was about to exit the infirmary. A sweet smell drifted over.
It was a shampoo smell, unlike the ones that are used by the Sanada family. It’s the same smell that comes from the shampoo that Sensei uses, who was standing next to me in the curry house. Is it because she stuck to him the whole time in the haunted house…? Somehow, I don’t like that.
“~~~~Nii-san, come here a bit.”
“What is it?”
I picked up a febreeze that was placed on the shelf, and sprayed it.
“Ugyaaah!? What are you doing!?”
“S-Sana is just resetting your smell for you! Be grateful!”
“There wasn’t any weird smell, right?”
“T-that is… Y-you stunk of curry! Germ covered Nii-san!”
“Who’s covered in germs! If that’s the case, you should smell like curry since you were standing right in front of the pot!”
Geez. When I say that, he says this.
“Give that to me. Nii-san will help to disinfect you.”
“Nooooo. What do you mean give it over? Let’s go already. The stands will close soon, right?”
While voicing his complaints, Nii-san closed the febreeze and left the infirmary. I also followed after him.
“Nii-san, what do you want to eat?”
“Takoyaki and shaved ice.”
“Hmmm? Then, Sana will also go with the same.”
Since there was no one in the hallway, I locked arms with him.
“… Stop it, idiot.”
“So, you say, but you’re actually happy, right?”
“I’m not happy.”
He tried to shake me off, but it wasn’t done very strongly, and we stayed like this until we got outside.
◆ Hiiragi Haruka ◆
As we were absorbed in our kisses on the bed, Seiji-kun’s cell phone rang. Piriririri. Piririri.
Bi, he pushed the hang up button and once again our lips overlapped.
That voice brought us back to reality. We lent an ear in the direction the voice came from.
“Nii-san, are you sleeping?”
Sana-chan came in!? Whawhawhawhat should we do!?
“Haruka-san, just lie down for a bit.”
“Eh? Yeah, what about Seiji-kun…?”
“I’ll hide underneath and look for a time to sneak out.”
Seiji-kun then hid under the bed. The curtain was pulled open and I could tell that Sana-chan was confused.
“Hey, what are you doing?”
Seiji-kun had moved out from under the bed before I realized.
After that, I listened to the conversation the two of them had from on top of the bed. They’re super close… I’m quite jealous…
“Tsundere Sana-chan is quite formidable…”
Still… I would also like a little sister like that…
