Hi. The context is that 十香 had originally lived with 士道 and 琴里 (the speaker) and recently 十香 moved to the house next to where 士道 and 琴里 live. So why is 越してきてから used instead of 越していってから since 十香 moved away from the spekaer? Doesn’t 越してきてから suggest she moved towards the speaker? Or the 来る here has other function?
Thank you.

Isn't the story settled that 十香 moved there, i.e., didn't they tell so to classmates?

She might be talking in that story even though they both know that's not true.

What Toritoribe-san means is that she could be describing the situation from the perspective of the others who have only just learned that 十香 moved nearby.

"(As far as they know), you guys haven't walked to school once yet since she moved to this part of town. (Since 士道 was originally keeping it secret that they were actually living together, they don't know that she actually moved from closer to 士道 to slightly farther away. Just that she recently moved to around here and thus it's strange that they don't go to school together even though they live next door to each other.)"
