After Coincidentally Saving the New Transfer Student’s Little Sister, We Gradually Grew Closer – 7

I’m Definitely Not a Lolicon

—Having been called ‘Onii-chan’ with a huge smile, I felt as if I had been shot through the heart.

It’s not like I wished to be called ‘Onii-chan’, and yet—for some reason, when I’m called ‘Onii-chan’ by Emma, it makes me really happy. I can feel my cheeks relax due to the unbelievable amount of cuteness.

Her pronunciation was still a bit off, but I gave the beaming Emma a pat on her head. When I did that, she squinted her eyes in pleasure like a cat rubbed her head against my hand.

What is this cute creature? It makes me want to pet her forever.

—Hmmm?

Huh… leaving that aside, aren’t I forgetting something?

“Good Emma, you were able to properly call him Onii-chan. Now then, he seems to have something important to do, so you should let him go. Let’s go home together.”

That’s right, I had that promise with Aki. I had only just remembered, and yet I forgot about it so quickly. If Aki were to find out about this, she would definitely get angry and sulk.

“No!”

Just as I was imagining Aki’s pouting expression, Emma-chan, who was told to return home with Charlotte, for some reason turned to face to the side. That type of behaviour caused even Charlotte to hesitate.

“Emma, what is it? Are you not coming home with me?”

“Emma wants to be with Onii-chan… I will go home with Onii-chan…”

“““““Eh!?”””””

“What? What happened?”

Everyone in the staff room was surprised at Emma’s sudden declaration. Only Miyu-sensei, who doesn’t understand English, cocked her head in confusion.

“Ah… Well… Emma wants to be with Aoyagi-kun… So she’s saying that she wants to go back with Aoyagi-kun…”

After realizing that Miyu-sensei doesn’t understand English, the kind Charlotte made an interpretation. I feel like it would be better to pay attention to your sister rather than Miyu-sensei.

“I understand… There is that thing with Aki… But it’s fine. Aoyagi, go home with them.”

“Are you serious? There’s no way I can do that!”

“Why not?”

“No, it shouldn’t even need to be explained. Even if I end up sending her home, she’ll probably just throw a tantrum again over there instead of here.”

“Well, I can’t really say anything back to that. Aoyagi. For the time being, go back to your own house with the two of them. You’ll notice something interesting.”

“Huh…?”

What do you mean when you say go home with them? Are you telling me to invite them to my house? No, that’s impossible, you know? Charlotte probably has some misgivings about this.

While wondering what Miyu-sensei was talking about, I tried to confirm with Charlotte, but she seemed convinced for some reason.

Hey, wait a minute… Am I the only one who doesn’t understand what’s happening…? 

“I’m really sorry about this, Aoyagi-kun. If it’s alright with you, can you please go home with us?”

“Are you serious!?”

“Yes, please.”

Charlotte was bowing towards me. What should I do? I can’t keep up with the situation at all. Although Miyu-sensei is someone who jokes around with other people, why did even Charlotte ask for me to go home with them?

My head is already a mess due to this sudden turn of events. With such an unexpected outcome, of course that would be the case. What in the world are both Miyu-sensei and Charlotte thinking?

No answers came as I thought about it. Putting all of my knowledge together, there was no way I could come up with an answer.

As such, for now—

“Okay…”

――Since I was tired of thinking, I decided to go with the flow.


“Um… Let’s go home then…?”

Immediately after exiting the staff room, I spoke to Charlotte who was standing beside me. With this question, “Are we really going to my house?”, was what I wanted to really convey.

“Yes, I’ll be in your care.”

It seems that Charlotte hasn’t sensed the underlying essence of my words.

Charlotte is looking at me with a gentle smile.

I wonder what’s going on? Don’t tell me all of this is a mere dream?

I can’t believe that I am going home with the beautiful transfer student who joined us this very morning.

Kui kui.

“Hmm? Is there something wrong, Emma-chan?”

While I was busy looking at Charlotte, Emma tugs on the hem of my shirt. When I look at Emma, she opens her arms wide. This, don’t tell me…

“Carry.”

Just as I thought… From the familiar gesture, I had predicted what Emma desired.

I wasn’t sure if it was that she didn’t like walking shortly after waking up, or that she really likes being carried, but she musti’ve mustered up quite the courage and asked to be carried in front of her sister.

I glanced at Charlotte in confusion. When I did, Charlotte softly shook her head as she said.

“Emma, Aoyagi-kun will be troubled if you act like that, won’t he? You should walk on your own, okay?”

Charlotte crouched down to match Emma’s line of sight as she gently explained to her with a sisterly smile. It was quite the warm scene between two sisters.

However, it seemed as though Emma was dissatisfied as she vigorously shook her head and looked at me once again. Her eyes were teary, the two little orbs clearly saying “please carry me”.

If a young child has such a look on their face, anyone would want to instinctively indulge their requests.

No, I am by no means a lolicon.

  1. Getting real tire of Japanese MC being called lolicon just for caring for a child.

    That joke could fly in a gag show as the running joke for some character, but when almost every MC getting called lolicon it look less like a joke and look like Japanese people are a cold bunch who are not allow to interact with children.

    • Eh, I’ve noticed the LN, WN, Manga, and anime I consume in general reuse a lot of the same jokes and tropes (slapstick, accidental peeping, getting unreasonably mad with MC, etc). I just assumed that’s because they’re cut form the same cloth. I take it as less a statement about the Japanese people in general and more about the state of lazy writing and tropes that sell. I assumed it’s like toilet humor and far jokes in the U.S. it’s lazy, unintelligent, and honestly kinda bad, but it sells and gets easy laughs from the audience so everyone just throws it in (and yeah it just gets worse and worse the more you see it in media (law of diminishing returns and all that)), and no one’s gonna stop because for the most part it does the job.
