Shinobu Sengoku Casual Winter Dialogue Render

*wheezes* I-I cannot do more! I... I cannot move~!

We have been doing work with such a low posture for this long, thus my lower back is in pain! Oww, how pitiful! Although Midori-kun is being lively, for I, alone, to be downed...!

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render

Ahaha. Just as you'd expect from the son of a grocer, Midori-kun is probably used to farm work. A veteran has thorough knowledge of ways to not get tired, huh~? ♪

On our end, we're overusing muscles that we don't normally use very often so I'm completely worn out.

Unlike you and Yuta-kun who joined up with us midway, since the morning, I was picking strawberries the who~le time, y'know?

Really, I'm exhausted. I'll take a break too~ Is it okay if I sit beside you?

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render

Hm? Huh, where's your answer? Don't ignore me, it's lonely!

Shinobu Sengoku Casual Winter Dialogue Render

P-pardon me... That was rude of me, was it not? Since you were speaking on and on swi~ftly in one breath, I was unable to react right away.

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render

It's okay. At a~ny rate, Yuta-kun badmouths me, so you're on the lookout, aren't you?

"He's a no good Aniki~, an irresponsible dummy so it's better not to go near him" ... Things like that, right?

Shinobu Sengoku Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Ahaha. Well, it is fundamentally so, however, he values his older brother highly~ That is the impression that he is giving me. Especially recently ♪

It is the result of my stranger anxiety... That I was unable to provide a satisfactory response, I deeply apologize.

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render

It's okay~. Yuta-kun was like that a long time ago, too, y'know.

He was always hiding behind me~ Although I also acted as proxy, saying what Yuta-kun wanted to say, so it wasn't a good thing, was it?

It's precisely because that's how it was a long time ago... I think he understands how you feel, Shinobu-kun, so you were able to become friends. The result is good, isn't it~? Hee hee hee ♪

That's great, it isn't that you hate me or that you're prejudiced against me. Shinobu-kun, I had wanted to sit down and try talking to you once, you know?

Thanks for always looking after my little brother~♪

Shinobu Sengoku Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Nay, nay, it is far from looking after him! I am always giving Yuta-kun difficulty!

Rather, if I must apologize, I feel obliged to bow my head to the ground as Isara-dono had instructed me...!

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render

Ahaha... Don't go that far to apologize~ Since we're the same age.

Shinobu Sengoku Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Ahh... In spite of myself, you are "Yuta-kun's older brother" therefore I perceive you as being older than I.

Despite the fact that, when it comes to appearance, you are completely identical, as if you are performing the shadow duplication technique.

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render

Ahaha... Well, our guardian is kinda "like that" you know. So for a loong time, you could say that I was Yuta-kun's Papa as well as his Mama

That could be why I'm aging so excessively, I guess~?

Right, let's call it "becoming a grown-up"! You know, for me, Yuta-kun is the apple of my eye! He's my precious baby-chan... ♪

Well, in that way, I'm acting as his guardian, so... I'm happy that even Yuta-kun can make such a remarkable face at Shinobu-kun, I guess~?

Fufufu. It's a strange feeling, Yuta-kun having a friend to himself.

From now on, things like this will multiply, won't they~? This is the best, it’s like we can get two people’s worth of happy, fortunate things. ☆

If it's fine with you, let's be friends too, okay, Shinobu-kun? ♪

Shinobu Sengoku Casual Winter Dialogue Render

N-naturally! I-i-i-if you find me acceptable...!

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Hold it~ Aniki? That's my Shinobu-kun, don't steal him from me~?

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render

I'm not taking him away! A looong time ago... Even the Mi*i 4WD race car[1] that I snatched away from you, it's because that was a defective unit, y'know.

Yuta-kun, I felt that if you knew about that, you'd have been disappointed.

I'll take up all of the unpleasant things... Though it was none of my business, was it~? For me to do that.

Besides. No matter how or where you look at it, Shinobu-kun's a good kid, after all... Then, your Oniichan doesn't have a reason to take him away, right? ♪

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Yeah... By the way, don't take too long a break and get back to work~ Even though we expressly came out here to be helpers, you're not being helpful, are you?

Midori Takamine Casual Winter Dialogue Render

It's okay, I don't mind... Since this was a job that was asked of me by a relative, to begin with...

Everyone, relax... It's okay to eat the strawberries around this area, so...

There are things like condensed milk inside the cooler there...

If you're worried about hygiene, there's a faucet and wet tissues and stuff there, so...

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render

Roger~, you leave nothing out, huh? Then, shall we accept your offer and eat up? My stomach's grumbling from hunger!

Ee-nee- mee-nee- mi-ney mo~...♪

Yuta Aoi School Dialogue Render

Aniki, wash your hands properly. They're covered in mud, because you were lying down just now.

Shinobu Sengoku Casual Winter Dialogue Render

Ahaha, it is a good feeling as if we are having a picnic, not to mention that I shall be idling about with Yuta-kun~ ♪
