“How about we duo together? I think we can play on each other’s strengths.”

It took him a while to reply, but soon he said, “I’d be happy to oblige.” As soon as that blessed ping reached my ears, I was so vocal my brother rushed into my room asking if I was okay.

Although I’m embarrassed to say it myself, we had amazing chemistry together.
We had a blast every time we played with each other and, wanting to leave these good times behind, I went with the flow and started live-streaming.

I called that channel “The Beast and the Professor’s Chillin’ Session,” and it has gained a rather large amount of viewers.
More and more people started to comment on how better I was than when I only played solos.

However, as soon as Kyo started to confide more and more in me as Kenji, I felt my heart start to tighten by the day.
In reality, he never saw me, and there was only one girl in his heart.
Another.

Still, the fear of revealing my identity was too much to disregard.
What if things go irreversibly awkward? What if I lost my spot next to him? So, I continued to lie, thinking that this feeble connection was better than nothing.

This dynamic, however, changed as soon as he told me something in a voice call.
He told me he was rejected, though he hadn’t even confessed in the first place.
Kyo went into details, saying that, in the flow of the conversation, she told him she’d never date him, and that what she did was none of his business.

I hadn’t seen her in a while, but never did I get the impression she was someone who’d say these kinds of things.
This discrepancy confused me, but I still took what he said to heart.

The day after, he told me another classmate had pulled a cruel prank on him.
She “confessed” her feelings and then ridiculed him in front of her group of friends.
Needless to say, I was livid. Despite all that, the boys took his side, and Kyo was excited as he told me of all the goofing around he did with them.

“… Ah! So one of them said he’d introduce me to a nicer girl,” he had said, taking me by surprise.
I panicked at the moment but managed to regain my composure before I continued talking.
Inside, though, I was a raging storm.

After somehow scraping by without letting Kyo notice something was very, very wrong, I rushed into my brother’s room.

It would’ve been fine if it was Maika, who he had known and loved for ages, but I didn’t want some random girl to pop into his life and take him away.

No longer holding back, I questioned my brother, and he responded, “I know how you feel, just give me some time.
I won’t make it worse.
Promise.”

A few days had passed since then, and Saturday had arrived.

“Hey, big bro, is someone here?” I felt the mood being kind of weird, so I went to ask him.

“Yeah, just one of my friends.
We’re just planning a strategy to cheer Kyouhei up.
But you’re here just in time! Could you go to the convenience store and get me three bottles of tea? here’s the money.
Sorry, but could you please bring them to my room? Pretty please.”

“Aww, fine.
I’ll be back in a bit.”

And soon I was done with that errand.

“Bro, I brought you some tea,” I knocked on his door, and… What? My mind had stopped.
There he stood.
“Huh, big bro Kyo?!”

“Ah, Risa-chan? …Umm, you’ve become so b–beautiful.”

Why is he here? Also, what did he just say…?

“Wha— b, beautiful…”

I hadn’t seen his face in a long, long time, and I could feel the heat surging to my cheeks, and even the tips of my ears.

“Well, I know it’s nice to see each other again after so long and all, but please, sit down with us Risa.”

As soon as I saw that smug look on his face, I realized it was all a set-up.
What followed was me the most embarrassed, nervous, and happy I had ever been.
I could barely even form words, but truly, that was the best day I had ever had.
