The flashback by author Tsutomu Satou and the novel by illustrator Kana Ishida takes place in the eighth volume. Yen Press released the volume in English and it describes the story:
Looking at Miyuki and Tatsuya now, it’s probably hard to imagine them resembling anything other than sibling love. But things are not always like that…
Three years ago, Miyuki always felt uncomfortable around her brother. The rest of their family treated him no better than a lowly servant, even though he was the perfect Guardian, watching over Miyuki while she lived a normal life in middle school. But what really bothered her was that he never expressed his own feelings or thoughts.
However, when danger strikes during a fateful trip to Okinawa, their brotherly relationship is changed forever…
