“Look, it’s time.”

It’s now 7:00 pm.

Elf and I pressed F5 on the official website of the World Light novel tournament.

“Hmmm? Hmmmmm? ~~~~~~~~~~”

Both of us had the same reaction.

First place with 2040 votes, Muramasa-senpai’s story.

Second place with 2015 votes. Izumi Masamune.

Third place, 1950 votes belonged to a newbie, someone called Shitou Kunimytsu or something.

Next — Fourth place, 800 votes. Fifth place, 200 votes.

Next was a note:

Senjyu Muramasa-sensei’s story My Un-cute Junior was disqualified due to a violation of the rules.

“That, that means….”

“There is something else. Since Muramasa was disqualified, the second place winner — was chosen to be published this September.”


My head couldn’t keep up. I stood there stunned.

“That means….”

“Congratulations! You won!”

“Oh yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I screamed in happiness.

And raised my fist towards the ceiling.

Someone might say that based on the vote, I still lost to Muramasa-senpai.

They might say that despite my preparation, and my confidence, I only barely managed a victory. It’s not a big deal.

But right now, I didn’t care about any of that!

“Yeah, yeah yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

I was so happy.

As expected of senpai, she was so strong. Those newbies were strong too. That made my victory sweeter.

Our dream was well-received by readers, this is great.


*Thud! Thud! Knock!*

“We won! Victory!!!!!!!!!!!!”

My head was high, I rushed to the second floor.

I only stopped in front of her door.


I readjusted my breathing, a smile still on my face.

The locked room’s door slowly opened in front of me.

Sagiri appeared in a green coat.

Today, she didn’t have her headphones.


My little sister only smiled slightly and looked at me.


I grinned and raised my hand in a V-shape.

“We won.”


She nodded:


“Thanks to you.”

“I only drew the illustrations, nothing more.”

“Even so, it’s thanks to you. It’s our victory.”


She blushed and looked down. Probably due to embarrassment.

We stood in silence for a while.

“Ani-san…why did you pick that title?”

She asked me.

Why did I pick that title huh?

“It was a moment of inspiration.”

I scratched my cheek in embarrassment. Bet my face was red now too.

“When you shouted at Muramasa-senpai — I suddenly had one.”


Sagiri immediately looked up, her eyes widened.

Then she quickly looked down.

“…Is that so?”

“Yes…back then, when I saw you reluctantly do that…you looked like you might fall at any moment, I was worried. As your brother, I should have come to support you.”

Instead, I laughed.

I might be disqualified as an elder brother.

“I was very happy. Seeing you so cool, so dazzling…my heart was filled with….”


“I like you even more now.”

“I, idiot!”

“Haha, just a joke.”

Of course it wasn’t a joke. That was my true feelings.

“So I picked that title.”

I answered my little sister.

Since my mouth wasn’t quick enough, it couldn’t express my feelings.

Thus, I asked my story to do that for me.
