LSP – Chapter 20 – Level 5

“Onii-chan, congratulations on leveling up!” (Shari)

My sisters celebrated my level up and threw a party for me.

“Onii-chan, today is a bureiko1 today!” (Akari)

There has never been a time when it wasn’t all-you-can-eat, right?

For now, I go around pouring drinks for my little sisters.

“Um, from now on, I hope for your continued guidance and encouragement.” (Finn)

“Anyways, we will guide you as your Level 4 senpais.” (Akari)

“Why are you acting so high and mighty?” (Finn)

“What people at higher levels say is absolute.” (Akari)

“Eh?” (Finn)

“When I look back at when I was Level 3, I feel like I was so young. But during these milestone moments, we should celebrate. Well, as an elf, I have a long lifespan, so I still have plenty of chances to level up. Becoming Level 4 was a recent achievement for me, and I can tell you from experience that it’s important to focus on solidifying the basics. By doing that, I believe that leveling up and other results will naturally follow.” (Akari)

“Akari, you’re working hard.” (Finn)

“Ehehe.” (Akari)

“By the way, Onii-chan, what is your new blessing?” (Shari)

“Um, mental resilience?” (Finn)

“What’s that?” (Shari)

“Well, it’s like being able to handle being spoken ill of? Something like that?” (Finn)

“Are you really okay?” (Akari)

“Probably.” (Finn)

“Onii-chan, you’re gross.” (Shari)

“Should I just die?” (Finn)

“Thank you so much!” (Akari)

I could hear Akari’s loud voice from outside. I tried using my <Presence Detection>, but there was no one there.

“Akari, what’s going on?” (Finn)

“Oh, good morning, Onii-chan!” (Akari)

“Who were you greeting?” (Finn)

“I was expressing gratitude to the world!” (Akari)

The scenery of the countryside spreads outside. Did she always like the countryside?

“Akari-chan, you’re amazing.” (Finn)

“Hehe, I’m grateful to you too, Onii-chan!” (Akari)

I wonder if she attended some incredible seminar?

“I don’t think being human is just about levels!” (Akari)

What’s gotten into you all of a sudden? And by the way, aren’t you an elf, not a human?

“That’s right.” (Finn)

“I knew that.” (Akari)

“I see.” (Finn)

“I believe that living means we have to enhance our human qualities.” (Akari)

“Akari is really putting in effort!” (Finn)

“Hehe.” (Akari)

Lately, I feel that Shari hasn’t been feeling well.

“What’s wrong, Shari?” (Finn)

“Onii-chan…” (Shari)

Shari huddled on the bed, looked at me with teary eyes. I gently stroked her head. Shari looked up at me from below, or rather, she seemed to be giving me a sharp gaze.

“Why didn’t Onii-chan choose Shari?” (Shari)

“Eh?” (Finn)

“Onii-chan, you chose Akari-oneechan, right!” (Shari)

“In the midst of the fog, Onii-chan said, ‘Hold my hand’.” (Shari)

“Yeah.” (Finn)

“Shari reached out her hand, but… Onii-chan didn’t hold it.” (Shari)

“Oh.” (Finn)

“And then, Onii-chan, you were with Akari-oneechan, right?” (Shari)

“Well, um…” (Finn)

“Onii-chan, you chose Akari-oneechan, didn’t you?” (Shari)

Is that how it appears? Well, yeah, that’s what happened, but it was just a coincidence.

“No, no, I didn’t mean for that to happen…” (Finn)

“But it’s true that you held Akari-oneechan’s hand, right?” (Shari)

“Well… I guess so…” (Finn)

Shari stares at me with teary eyes. Ah, this is a tricky situation.

Onii-chan no bakaーーー2” (Shari)

Shari ran out of the room.

“You’re coming to me for advice on that?” (Akari)

“There’s no one else I can talk to about it.” (Finn)

“Isn’t it just a trivial argument?” (Akari)

“At least show some concern for your important little sister.” (Finn)

“Eh…” (Akari)

Akari looks at me with a slightly annoyed expression.

“Perhaps building virtue like this could also contribute to your human qualities?” (Akari)

“I guess there’s no helping it.” (Akari)

Akari places her hands on her hips and looks at me with a confident gaze. Her tunic is so loosely fitted that it’s about to slip off, revealing her cleavage.

“Well, both of you are already adults, so why not just do it?” (Akari)

“Isn’t that a problem in itself?” (Finn)

“In this world, you are considered adults, right?” (Akari)

“Shari is officially 12 years old, though.” (Finn)

“No one is going to file a complaint.” (Akari)

“But R18 is a bit too much.” (Finn)

Akari ponders for a moment.

“Well, at least give her a hug and a kiss then.” (Akari)

“Hug and kiss?” (Finn)

“You’re good at it, right? You always do it.” (Akari)

“That’s only because of the blessings… it’s not the same thing…” (Finn)

“Ugh, you’re so annoying!” (Akari)

Akari raises her voice.

“You’re an Onii-chan, so act responsibly!” (Akari)

The back of the house had a cowshed, half of which was converted into a barn with stacks of hay. I took Shari there.

Um, using the phrase “took her there” makes it sound somewhat suggestive.

“What is it, Onii-chan?” (Shari)

“Let’s start by talking.” (Finn)

“Onii-chan, you always try to evade things!” (Shari)

Shari’s face pouts in frustration. She looks cute like that.

“Shari is angry, you know!” (Shari)


After expressing her anger for a while, Shari grew tired of being angry and flopped down on the hay.

“I’m really sorry.” (Finn)

“What for?” (Shari)

“I’m sorry for making you feel lonely, Shari.” (Finn)

Shari lightly closed her eyes and a small smile formed on her lips.

“As long as you understand, Onii-chan.” (Shari)

I sat down next to Shari.

Shari was wearing a light gray felt dress, lying on her back on the bed of hay. It wasn’t as revealing as the clothes Akari usually wore, but the dress clung closely to her skin, accentuating the curves of her body. Her body was slender, with a sleekness reminiscent of a cat. Although she didn’t possess the same excitement as Akari, she was undeniably cute in her own way. She truly looked like an angel. I couldn’t help but admire her, never getting tired of watching her.

The girl’s breathing caused her chest, pressed against the elastic felt, to rise and fall. You could see the slight swell of her breasts and the delicate peaks at their center, as they moved up and down slowly.

No, this might make me a little nervous!

In a panic, I quickly averted my gaze from her chest, only to notice her round, slightly protruding belly and toned thighs enveloped in the felt fabric. And in between, soft fabric clung to her lower abdomen, creating a certain shadowy effect, um, how should I put it…

I lay down next to Shari, on my back, trying to calm my racing thoughts.

(She’s my sister! There’s no reason to feel excited!)

“What’s wrong, Onii-chan?” (Shari)

Shari rolled over onto her side and rested her head on my left chest.

“I used to love listening to Onii-chan’s heartbeat like this.” (Shari)

(I’m not feeling excited!)

“There’s something I need to apologize to you for.” (Shari)

“You don’t have to apologize, Shari.” (Finn)

“Listen, please.” (Shari)

Shari starts speaking.

“I was with a fake version of you inside that castle.” (Shari)

I nod.

“Shari told the fake Onii-chan to leave and separate from Akari” (Shari)


“You said you understand, Onii-chan.” (Shari)


“Whenever there’s a situation like that, you always try to deceive me, so at that moment, I thought that maybe this Onii-chan was a fake.” (Shari)


“But you know, it made me happy that Onii-chan chose me. He said we would always be together.” (Shari) 

Shari’s palm traces along my chest.

“Even if you were a fake… I was happy… knowing that I have a place with you.” (Shari)

“You have a place with me, Shari. You can always be by my side.” (Finn)

“It’s okay, Onii-chan. This is Shari’s selfishness. Shari wants to monopolize Onii-chan. I like Akari onee-chan, but I can’t give Onii-chan to her. Shari is actually such a selfish child. I’m sorry, Onii-chan.” (Shari)

What should I say to Shari? Should I just say it’s normal? Or should I express the more complex emotions in my heart? I ponder over it, but my thoughts don’t turn into words. I stop thinking. Um, what should I do again?

I lift Shari up, supporting her head with the palm of my right hand. As I do so, Shari’s eyes slowly close. I gently place a tender kiss on her slightly open mouth, tilting my head slightly. Such a slender, small body. How much hardship has this child endured? How oblivious have I been?

I gaze into my sister’s face, parting our lips.

“I won’t let you go, Shari.” (Finn)

When Shari leaned in on me, pressed her lips against mine. Her tongue explored my lips and entered my mouth.

I flipped my body over and leaned over Shari. I passionately kissed Shari’s lips while tightly embracing her.

“Mmm…” (Shari)

A sound escaped from deep within Shari’s throat. Shari’s petite body was buried beneath me in the hay. My tongue pushed back against Shari’s tongue and made its way into Shari’s mouth, slowly parting her teeth. Our tongues intertwined, and my saliva mingled with Shari’s in her mouth. Shari welcomed me, a sensation welling up from deep within me.

Level connection!” (Finn)


A level circuit is formed between Shari and me.

Begin Level transfer!” (Finn)

Uh, um…

“I… I’m going to die after all!” (Akari)

“Onee-chan, don’t die!” (Shari)

“I don’t care about human strength or anything like that!” (Akari)

TL notes:

Thanks for reading!

Bruh I just realized that mental resistance comes from the fact that his sisters called him gross. Not to mention he still takes damage from those words so the blessing does nothing for the cause lol.

That first Akari scene is so random that I thought I missed something. My guess is that the writer wanted to write an Akari scene, but forgot to finish it LOL.


  1. Bureiko is an informal party where people put aside any rank/status differences.
  2. “Onii-chan, you idiot!”
