Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 2 Part 6

Around ten minutes had passed. Returning home, accompanied by Elmira and Shizuma, I saw that Mion and Jyuri were understandably bewildered. "E, Elmira McCartney?" "That baby is the one from the pictures Ichirou had..." Unable to grasp the situation, the two stood still at the entrance. Kiki's next words further stupefied them. "Mion, Jyuri. From… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 2 Part 6

Nearly thirty apostles were slain. That rascal of a young girl had settled it in the blink of an eye, I've seen Kiki's combat power several times before. I'm not too surprised, but even so, I couldn't help but shiver and feel discomforted. I didn't think that the girl who hated spinach, collected toy monsters,… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 2 Part 5

I crashed into the apartment with a fierce dash. Elmira and Shizuma weren't there. From appearances, there didn't seem to be any signs of a battle. Perhaps she sensed that the enemies were approaching and fled the area in a hurry. (If she were to run away...she might be at the cemetery!) Elmira and I… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 2 Part 4

"Ichirou. Sit over here." It was after dinner. Mion suddenly stopped me as I was trying to leave the living room. The heron apostle had a stern expression, pointing towards a cushion on the floor. I followed her order, unable to refuse. ...I could predict what this was about. It seems that the three princesses… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 2 Part 3

For better or for worse, my "search for Elmira" with Yukimiya had ended. When I fainted, Yukimiya was worried about me and said, "Kobayashi, it seems you're tired. It must be those supplementary lessons and homework...", deciding to continue the search by herself. (I feel a bit bad about it, but I'm thankful for being… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 2 Part 2

An Older Sister Starting Today It was the next day, Sunday. I was in the midst of heading towards a plaza in front of the station so that I could meet with Yukimiya. I readied myself and attempted to consult with Taotie. He's hopeless as someone to consult with, but given the circumstances, he's the… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 2 Part 1

It's now Saturday, a few days have passed since I met Elmira at the cemetery. Though I'm no longer restricted by supplementary lessons and extra homework, I'm not happy about it. Since I'm now free, I have to accompany Ryuuga and the others in their "search for Elmira". That by itself wouldn't be a problem.… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 1 Part 6

By the time Elmira finished speaking, I had recovered enough energy to get up from my seat. At any rate, I understand the truth behind her message about "allying with the apostles due to certain circumstances". It seems that she couldn't abandon a baby, even if that baby was an apostle. It looks like Shizuma… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 1 Part 5

Being guided by Elmira, we arrived at a residential area that was about a ten minute walk from the cemetery. She had rented a room at the corner of the fourth floor in a typical five-story apartment complex. Despite her only moving in recently, there was quite a range of appliances, furniture, and equipment. There… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 1 Part 4

I focused my willpower and determination into continuing my battle with the handouts, and finally managed to make it to the last four. My energy had reached its limit. (I can't go on...I'm not even aware of what subject I was doing...) Looking at the time, it was already one o'clock. The three princesses are… Continue reading Is it Tough Being a Friend? v4 Chapter 1 Part 3
