Third chapter of the day.
When I Returned From Another World I Was A Silver Haired Shrine Maiden: Chapter 72
Brother And Sister (Yuna)
Having finished washing my body, I wiped my body dry then changed into a fresh set of clothes in the dressing room.
I had hesitated on what to wear after getting out of the shower. I considered only wearing the bath towel, but decided that things like that are best left in 2-D, and put on my usual house wear instead.
However, the underwear I chose was matching pair with a pink lace style, it was the so called “victory” underwear.
「Even though it’s called that, it isn’t just used when you’re preparing for a man. It’s something you wear if you want to get pumped up for an exam, or the type of underwear you put on if you know you’re going to have to change clothes with others during a trip.」
While telling me that, Yuna had chosen it for me.
I had never imagined that I would be wearing this underwear for its original purpose.
Covering it with a camisole, then putting on a one-piece dress, I completed the outfit.
When I first obtained this body, I had always felt uneasy unless I wore pants, now, I’ve become completely used to not wearing them.
I look at myself in the full-length mirror. Having spent my daily life in this house, my appearance was the same as usual.
However, in reality, I would soon be in an extraordinary world where I’m embracing my imouto.
After telling Yuna that I was out of the shower, I returned to my room. My interactions with Yuna have certainly become awkward since we talked.
Having returned to my room, I wasn’t sure how to spend the time.
On the sheets of the bed, I had laid out a bath towel like usual, I can’t think of anything else that I need to prepare.
The toy that Hisui gave me is hidden in one of the drawers under the bed, however, it won’t be used with Yuna as my partner.
I sat down on the bed and took out my smartphone in order to try and kill time, however, the words on the pages don’t even enter my head as I browse the net. I don’t feel like playing a game either, so I just put my phone down on the bedside.
I take one of my pillows and hug it while losing myself in thought.
「Can I really embrace Yuna like this…?」
I asked the question that had constantly been on my mind.
I didn’t bother to convert it to my usual tone as Alice. (TN: Aka he used “Boku” instead of “Watashi”)
『… Is this unpleasant for Ikuto-san after all?』
Hearing my words, Alicia asks me that again. Have I started to make Alicia feel uneasy?
「It’s not like that… I’ve never felt sexual feelings for Yuna before. I think Alicia also understands that.」
『If you say so, that’s probably the case.』
I have never lusted after my imouto before.
Though my body did respond when she washed it, it was only in a physical sense, it’s different from being aroused in a mental sense.
Even when I had worn Yuna’s underwear, I had only felt unpleasant. If it was underwear from a different girl, I think it would have been stained rather quickly.
「So when we do this with Yuna, there is a chance that I may fail to have such feelings. If that happens, then it is due to my own problem and I don’t want you to feel depressed because of it.」
The important thing here is to erase Alicia’s fears about receiving pleasure from a person other than me.
However, if I fail to see Yuna as a partner, there is the possibility that it may cause the opposite effect.
Even if I just act like I’m enjoying it, and let out a pretend voice, it won’t be enough to fool Alicia.
『I understand, but, I don’t think you need to worry about that.』
「Is that so…」
『Because, Yuna is cute. Ikuto-san should know that as well.』
Looking at it objectively, I think Yuna, with her raven-black long hair, is a beautiful school girl. However, that isn’t what matters right now. It’s that she is my imouto.
Like that, I spent the time talking with Alicia.
Eventually, a knock was heard on the door to my room.
I responded to it with a nervous voice, the door was opened and Yuna walked into the room.
I held my breath seeing her appearance.
Yuna was wearing a bath towel around her body, she wasn’t wearing anything else.
Both hands were held as if to hide her chest, a change of clothes was also in her hands.
Yuna’s naked skin was familiar to me. I can’t count the number of times we’ve bathed together, I’ve seen her completely nude time and time again.
However, the girl in front of me who had a bashful look in her eyes, gave off an impression that was completely different from the Yuna I had previously seen.
The bare skin of her shoulder between her neck and collarbone. Her chest that was being hidden in her arms. The beautiful curves of her body that can’t be hidden by the bath towel. Her slender legs that were unblemished from her feet to her thighs. An indescribable feeling comes over me.
「… Please don’t stare at me.」
Yuna looked away as she called out my gaze.
Her face had a tinge of red, and her eyes were wet.
Having this appearance shown to me, the picture I had of Yuna as my sister completely vanished.
What was left, was that a girl filled with uneasiness and anticipation about what was going to happen.
— Badump, I could hear the sound of my heart beating.
… What is this?
I can’t hide my embarrassment of the feelings that came over me.
『– So, everything is good, right?』
Alicia’s voice echoed through my head like a devil’s whisper.
