"When was this cat in this house? Who brought it here?"
My sister's round eyes became even closer to circles.
"Humm... Last month. You brought it back, Kyon-kun, didn't you? Remember? You got it from a friend who had moved abroad. Right, Shami~?"
Snatching the tri-colored cat from my arms, my sister brushed her cheek against it affectionately. Shamisen, which sleepily narrowed its eyes, looked at me from afar with an I-give-up expression.
"Give me that."
I grabbed the cat back. Shamisen's whiskers were shaking, apparently annoyed by being treated like merchandise. Sorry, I'll reward you with dried food afterwards.
"I need to have a word with it. Just the two of us. So, get out of my room. Now!"
"Hey, I'd like to talk too. That's unfair, Kyon-kun! Eh... You're talking with Shami? Eh? Really?"
