「So?
Onii-chan had a date with Nancy, huh.」

「It’s not a date, it’s Japan sightseeing.」

Aya is in a bad mood for some reason,
did you eat something strange?

「Well then, I’m going together with you as well!」
「You have junior college, right?」

「It’s fine if I take a day off from school for a day.」
「Come to think of it, isn’t there going to be an examination soon?」
「Ugh……」

Somehow, it seems to be a bullseye.

「Therefore, together with Elena, and Hilda too,
I’m going to sightseeing in Japan.」

「Is it fine?」
「Both Elena and Hilda haven’t properly gone sightseeing in Japan yet.」
「I’m happy!」「Yay!!」

Elena and Hilda were delighted,
while Aya was sullen.

「Then, for tomorrow’s Japan sightseeing,
let’s learn English.」
「N? What do you mean?」

「In order to converse with Nancy,
we’re going to the United States using【Teleportation】
and acquire English using【temporary language acquisition +2】.」

「That’s right!
If we do that, English……」

「With that said, get ready since we’re going to the United States.」
「What kind of preparations should we make.」

「Since we’re just going to use the magic stone over there, it’s fine as long as it’s appropriate.」
「「Ye~s.」」

And then, we teleported to『Los Angeles』.

***

It was midnight in Los Angeles.

「Is this place the United States? There’s nobody?」
「Because It’s midnight.
Well, it’s 3:00 am.」

「At such midnight, something like a shop isn’t open here~.」
「We didn’t come here to play.
Quickly acquire English and we’ll return.」

Why am I in a hurry so much, you ask……?
Because there’re so many yellow dots which indicates『caution』on the map.

I’ve chosen a teleportation destination properly,
but somehow or other, we seem to have come to an area which isn’t that much safe.

「Were you able to acquire English?」
「I did it~.」「「I was able to do it~.」」

「Alright, then, let’s go home quickly.」
「Eh, let’s look around for a bit~.」

When did we have such a talk!?

「Hey, are you Chinese?」

A strange drunkard man called out to me.

Agh, we’re one step too late, huh.

「I’m Japanese.」
「Oh! A Japanese!
A Japanese boy accompanied by cute women,
what business do you have in a place like this?」

A boy……
I’m 30 years old, though……

「We had already finished our business. We’re now about to go back.」
「Don’t say such a thing, let’s get together for a bit.」

The drunkard man grabbed my arm and tried to take me.
Hm? Why is this man trying to take only me?

I felt an unspeakable fear.

「Stop!」

I broke free from the man’s hand.

「This guy is brazen in spite of being a Jap!
Just come with me obediently!」

Uwa!!

My whole body got goosebumps.

*Zubo!*

Before I knew it, Aya knocked the man down.

「A-, Aya, thank you……
I’m saved.」
「It’s good that I was able to defend onii-chan’s chastity.」

We left behind the man, who had been knocked down and fainted, and went back to Japan.

***

The next morning, Aya is at the junior college.
Elena, Hilda, and I left the house together.

I made a『direct』call to the company,
and went to the hotel where Nancy is staying.

「I’ve come to pick you up, Nancy.」
「Good morning, Seiji.
Ah, Elena! Uh, who’s the other one?」

「This girl is my younger sister, Hilda.」
「I-, I’m Hilda.」

Introduced by Elena, Hilda too, said hello.

「Elena-chan!? You can speak English?」

「Elena learned English especially to be able to talk with Nancy.」
「Is that true!? I’m glad!!」

Well, it’s not a lie, you know?
Though she only learned it using the magic stone.

「Iyaa, it’s lonesome to have nobody you could talk to~.」
「I also brought along these two because they said they haven’t gone sightseeing in Japan yet, is it fine?」
「Yes, of course.」

Nancy seemed to be glad too, it was correct to bring them along.

「By the way, Nancy. Is there a place you’d like to go?」
「That’s right~.
Mt. Fuji! I’d like to climb it!」
「As one would expect, it’s impossible to climb Mt. Fuji so suddenly.」
「Is that so?」
「We must have a proper preparation for mountain climbing.」

「Well then, the Gold Temple!」
「Gold Temple??
Ah! Kinkakuji[1]!
Umu, can a Shinkansen[2] or airplane’s ticket be bought immediately?」

「Oh! Shinkansen!
I’d like to board the Shinkansen too!」

Umu, it seems to be necessary to make a proper schedule for this.
I contacted the director and consulted him.

———-

The result was we might spend four days, from today to Friday, for sightseeing.

It seems the Director will make the arrangements for our lodging and the Shinkansen going to Kyoto.
Will everything be okay?

「Nancy, can you really spend four days for sightseeing?」
「Un, it’s bad if I don’t know more about Japan.」
「It seems we’ll be going to Kyoto from tomorrow, but where shall we go today?」
「Umm, I’ll leave it to you, Seiji.」

I wonder if it’s safe around Asakusa?

***

Therefore, together with Nancy, Elena, and Hilda,
went to Asakusa.

「Oh! A big・paper・lantern!」

Nancy is delighted to see the Kaminarimon[3].
Both Elena and Hilda are happy the same as Nancy.

If one were to speak of me, then certainly……
I wasn’t able to enjoy myself at all.

In fact, the whole time, from Nancy’s hotel to here―

『someone』continues to follow us.

It’s a yellow dot indicating『caution』on the map.

Who on earth could it be……

    I would have understood if that attack had happened in San Francisco but even in Los Angeles. I guess Americans are often gay everywhere in California?

      Gay Californian checking in. Gay people in the U.S. have been working in earnest on showing that we are everywhere for the last 25 years.
      While San Francisco is considered a gay Mecca, Los Angeles has multiple neighborhoods understood to be gayer, such as West Hollywood, Silver Lake and Palm Springs.

      With regard to the caution warnings on Seiji’s map, they might not all be about his ass. For years, Los Angeles has been regarded as crime ridden. See “L.A. Story” for a parodic portrayal of its crime rate from 25 years ago.
