「 Take a seat for now 」
Jii-chan asks Kaan Momoko-neechan to sit down
「 Thank you 」
They’ve become sworn-sisters yesterday so she’s relaxed with Misuzu.
She sits down elegantly.
Her bodyguard, Yamada Umeko, or Sebastianus-san…
Oh, it’s the opposite, Sebastianus, or Yamada Umeko-san, she stands behind her Master naturally. She’s not sitting down.
「 I’ll prepare tea now 」
Ruriko stood up and head to the kitchen.
「 Oh, I think you already know but please don’t bring the shrine maidens close to me 」
Momoko-neechan knows how fearsome the Miko power of the Takakura sisters is.
「 Also, can you call Kurama Arisu-san over? 」
「 I’d like to talk to her 」
Ruriko looked at Jii-chan’s face.
Jii-chan nodded lightly.
「 Certainly, uhm, Kaan-sama 」
「 Call me Momoko-oneesama. I see Ruriko as my little sister, just like Misuzu 」
Momoko-neechan shows a smile filled with composure.
「 Thank you. So, what drink would you like to have? 」
「 Hmm, I’ll take Plum Kombucha tea 」
「 If I recall Kouzuki house has that prized Plum Kombucha tea, am I correct? Grandfather seems to have received it before 」
Jii-chan smiles wryly.
「 Ruriko, do it. Bring out my Kombucha tea 」
What’s that about? It seems that Jii-chan’s hiding some Plum Kombucha tea exclusive for him.
「 Then, I’ll bring it right away. What about Yamada Umeko-sama? 」
「 Thank you for asking. But, I’m on duty 」
Yamada Umeko-san who remains standing said in refusal, but…
「 Take her offer. Sebastianus, this is the Kouzuki mansion 」
「 Excuse me. Then I’d like some coffee please 」
A high school girl dressed as a man. If I recall correctly, she’s also 17, like Momoko-neechan. Yamada-san bows her head to Ruriko.
「 Oh, bring Cona for her 」
Jii-chan told Ruriko.
「 No, Jii-chan no matter how you put it, how can you bring the corner to here 」
「 What are you talking about? 」
Jii-chan looked at me.
「 Ufufufu, Kou-chan’s funny as always 」
「 Onii-sama. Cona, not Corner. It’s a coffee bean made from Hawaii 」
Ruriko turned to me and said.
「 Ruriko, bring him a cup of the same drink. Try to teach him about good drinks 」
「 Yes, grandfather, I’ll bring in the treasured coffee of Kouzuki house 」
Ruriko smiled and went to the kitchen.
Oh, she’s bringing me coffee too.
「 Jii-chan, what about the plum kombucha tea 」
「 Not that one. Don’t drink it 」
Oh, I guess.
「 By the way, how long have you been here, Momoko-oneesama? 」
Torii-san still kneels down.
She looked up at Momoko-neechan and asked timidly.
「 Right, I guess the hamburger steak was delicious. It has an elegant taste, but I would’ve preferred if the taste is a bit thicker. The taste was suited for children 」
She ate the hamburger Agnes and the girls cooked.
Oh right, there was a separate wagon for Minaho-neesan and Kurama Misato-san.
Misato-san can’t join in our family since she became a prostitute.
「 I had a talk with Kurama Misato-san just earlier. She was calm, and have decided to face her destiny. It’s surprising to see her since she was so timid and flustered yesterday. To think that she changed that much in one day 」
She went to Minaho-neesan and Misato-san’s room and talked to Misato-san?
「 Mariko, you’re too late to make reports. So, I had no choice but to come over and see with my own eyes 」
Momoko-neechan speaks brightly.
「 I already talked to Kaan about my motives 」
Jii-chan already talked to Momoko-neechan’s grandfather, the head of Kaan house.
Kurama Misato-san will become a prostitute of the Black Forest, but…
She will not sell her body.
The men of the nobility who were indebted to the Kurama house’s previous generation will buy Misato-san’s time, but…
They will keep their honor and help Misato-san out.
「 Punishing the Kurama house while keeping their honor from becoming dirty. I think it’s going in a wonderful direction. Kaan Momoko’s impressed 」
「 It’s troublesome to make everyone think that they can buy a daughter of nobility with money just because she became a prostitute. Kurama Misato-kun still belonged to a family with such history among the nobility and so only someone with the power of the head of the family can buy her. That way, she could keep her honor 」
「 Uhm, did anyone want to see me? 」
Arisu comes in from the kitchen.
「 Sorry. I was in the middle of washing dishes 」
Arisu’s wearing an apron. Her sleeves are rolled up to her elbows.
She was washing the dinner tableware along with the other girls.
「 Oh, you don’t seem to be a daughter of nobility now, do you? 」
「 Y-Yes. I, Kurama Arisu, have become Kuromori-sama’s concubine, no, his sex slave. I will spend my lifetime serving Kuromori-sama 」
The young girl speaks flatly.
「 Then, you’ll bear Kou-chan’s child and that child will revive the Kurama house, am I correct? 」
Momoko-neechan said, but…
「 No, I’m a slave, and so I don’t think about that. I only let my master, Kuromori-sama decide it all 」
Arisu looks straight into Momoko-neechan’s eyes and said.
「 All I have to do is serve Kuromori-sama, and do everything he desires. Someday…the soonest would be by next year…if Kuromori-sama wants it, I will give birth to his child. I will do my best in lovingly raising my child. I can let Kuromori-sama decide what future awaits to my child 」
「 Oh, are you sure? Leaving everything to Kou-chan? 」
Momoko-neechan asks with a slightly teasing tone.
「 Of course! 」
Arisu believes in me.
That I will never abandon her.
That I will make her happy.
「 That’s fascinating. Your big sister, Kurama Misato still has the spirit as a daughter of nobility but Arisu-chan has become Kou-chan’s slave in a true sense 」
Misato-san’s prepared to become a prostitute for her dream of earning money and buying back Kurama house’s assets.
Meaning, Misato-san is a prostitute, but she’s still a young lady of the Kurama house.
Therefore, she can’t enter our family, and she can’t become my woman.
「 Yes, I’m grateful to become a slave from the bottom of my heart 」
Arisu is my woman.
She knows that she can’t return to the Kurama house.
「 Kaan-sama, uhm 」
「 What? 」
「 I want Kaan-sama to see something 」
Arisu said. Momoko-neechan
「 Sure. What is it? 」
Arisu goes to the kitchen.
「 Mitama-oneesama, Kinuka, come here 」
Oh, Mitama and Kinuka are watching Arisu worriedly from the gap in the door.
「 E-Excuse us 」
「 Excuse 」
Mitama and Kinuka’s hips are lowered as they enter, and behind them…
Eri, Rie, Mana, and Agnes comes in.
「 Oh, who are you, girls? 」
「 Oh, please don’t mind us. We’re here just to watch 」
「 That’s right. Just here to watch us 」
「 You don’t have to mind us 」
「 That’s right. That’s right, Luna-chan’s told not to come so she’s cheering from over there 」
Arisu looked at Mitama and Kinuka.
「 We were master and servant until yesterday but now we’re sisters. All the others as well, they’re my big sisters who kindly lead the way for us 」
「 Agnes is younger! Luna, Koyomi-chan, and Karen-chan too 」
「 Yes, Agnes-san and the girls are my precious little sisters 」
「 Yes, that’s right! 」
「 What, so you abandoned your pride as a daughter of nobility and escaped to an easier route Arisu-san? 」
Momoko-neechan said, but…
「 Kurama house isn’t a family that can preserve their pride. Our house has collapsed, thus, it’s foolish to put on a bold front just because I’m a daughter of nobility. I live for Kuromori-sama. I’m his slave. I humbly accept that face 」
「 That’s right! Arisu-chan is just like us! That’s why she’s family, she’s a friend 」
「 We won’t forgive those who speak harshly to Arisu-chan! 」
Eri and Rie stand behind Arisu and shouted.
「 H-Hey, you two 」
「 I’m grateful 」
Hearing the twins say that, Mitama and Kinuka are impressed.
「 Okay, calm down. You don’t need to fight that Onee-san at all 」
「 Anyway, Onii-chan and our group will keep Arisu-chan safe 」
「 That’s right, desuno! They’re Agnes’ family! 」
「 Okay. Anyway, Arisu-san seems happy. When I last saw you yesterday, you were so pale that I thought you were going to kill yourself 」
I see. The last time Momoko-neechan saw the Kurama sisters was during the time when they’re taken out of the party grounds.
They came to ask for Jii-chan and Kaan house’s help to save the Kurama house, and yet…
They were rejected right in front of the other daughters of the nobility.
Misato-san and Arisu were both at the bottom of despair.
「 To think that you’re this lively after one night, you seem to be okay now. You seem to have new friends this time, and Arisu-san has become better 」
Momoko-neechan looked at me.
「 Kou-chan, take responsibility for her okay. If you come at me crying and say that you can’t keep them anymore, Onee-chan won’t help you 」
「 Yeah, I know. I’ll treasure her, Momoko-neechan 」
「 It’s okay. I’ll be with Danna-sama to make sure it doesn’t happen 」
「 Oh, speaking of which, Misuzu’s a year older. Onee-san wife? I guess you’re the big sister 」
Momoko-neechan laughs while poking fun.
「 Oh well. Anyway, it seems that the incident has been solved. Kouzuki-sama, I will report to Grandfather all the events 」
「 Indeed. Kaan would probably believe you, who saw what happened personally, compared to me 」
「 Yes. It’s okay now. You can go back to whatever you’re doing. Thanks 」
「 Yeah, you can go back to the kitchen for now 」
Momoko-neechan and I said.
Arisu, Mitama, and Kinuka, bowed to Momoko-neechan and Jii-chan.
Then, the other girls followed.
They went back to the kitchen.
「 So, Mariko, you won’t be joining that group, would you? Are you going to become their comrades? 」
She speaks to Torii-san who’s still prostrating herself.
「 O-O-O-Of course not! Not! That’s not the case! 」
Torii-san said in panic.
「 I-I-I-I only wanted to experience s-s-s-s-sex! I-I-I do not intend to join in K-K-K-Kuromori-sama’s family 」
「 Hearing that makes me feel relieved. Mariko, you’re my protegee, it would be frustrating if Kou-chan takes you away from me 」
Momoko-neechan smiles wryly.
「 Still, that was a good determination. Mariko, that cockiness was cute but, you were too impertinent that you don’t get along with people. I think that your scope will spread out if you experience something like sex. I don’t think that’s a bad thing 」
「 Y-Yes. Momoko-oneesama 」
「 Besides, nice choice on picking Kou-chan. Kou-chan won’t give you future troubles. He won’t get too immersed that he loses control of himself, right? Look at Kou-chan, he had sex with such sexy girls 」
「 He’s already accustomed to sex so he won’t have problems with Mariko, right? Try not to get her hurt okay? Oh, I do know that it hurts on your first time. But, Kou-chan can decrease the pain, right? 」
Momoko-neechan looks at me with her sparkling eyes.
I get it.
Momoko-neechan’s also a virgin.
She’s a virgin, but she’s immensely curious about sex.
Just as Jii-chan mentioned earlier.
The young ladies of nobility is too sexually restrained.
「 Mariko, I will be watching on the box seat and watch you have your first experience, okay? I’m your big sister and so it’s naturally my right to watch 」
「 Eh? Ah, err 」
Torii-san looks troubled.
「 Mariko, you watched Kurama Arisu-san’s first experience, haven’t you? 」
「 Ah, yes, I watched them 」
「 If that’s the case, you don’t mind if I watch your first experience, do you? 」
She’s pushing with that reasoning.
「 Why not? Show it to her
Jii-chan tells me.
「 Either way, you’re accustomed to people watching you 」
I’m always under supervision, even now.
Someone’s always watching me have sex.
「 Teach her about real sex 」
Jii-chan smiled at me.
Momoko-neechan shows composure now, but…
She doesn’t know about real live sex.
She might not be able to stand due to surprise.
Torii-san’s senses have been numbed down since she’s been watching me have sex with various girls since last night.
Momoko-neechan doesn’t know what it means to have sex.
「 Educate her 」
「 Okay, the tea’s prepared 」
Ruriko then brings in the tea.
「 Here, Grandfather’s and Kaan-sama’s plum kombucha tea, I prepared a cup for Grandfather as well 」
「 Thank you. I can’t bring myself to watch someone drink my prized tea while I can’t 」
「 Yamada-sama and Onii-sama’s coffee 」
She brings the drinks from the tray to the table.
The other girls surrounding the table, Shou-neechan, Misuzu, and Yoshiko-san still drink the tea they had earlier.
「 Oh, thanks. Sorry…To think that a young lady of the Kouzuki house would go out of her way to bring tea to me 」
Momoko-neechan said, but…
「 No. I’m just like the girls earlier 」
Ruriko replies with a smile.
「 I am Onii-sama’s slave. Those girls are my sisters 」
About how Momoko-neechan called Arisu and Agnes.
「 Oh my, that was impolite of me. Sorry 」
Momoko-neechan said with a smile.
「 As long as you understand 」
To tell the truth, it’s much more stubborn than Misuzu, and she’s scarier when angry.
「 I will prepare Torii Mariko-san’s room now. Please wait for a while as you drink your tea 」
Oh, Ruriko’s late to come back because…
She’s picking the room where Torii-san and I will have sex.
I’m sure that Nei and the girls are preparing the room.
That’s why they’re not showing up.
「 Onii-sama, please show Mariko-san what love is 」
Oh man, that smile is scary.
I guess it means ‘that.’
The so-called, “make her wheeze”
To overwhelm Momoko-neechan who’s coming to observe.
Oh man, that’s troublesome.
I drink my coffee.
「 Wow, what’s this? 」
This is delicious. It has a great aroma too.
「 That’s Kona coffee. A genuine one 」
「 Most of the others are counterfeits. That one is 100% pure Kona beans. Furthermore, it’s the top class beans called “excellent fancy.” It’s a custom order, the best-roasted coffee 」
To think that coffee like this exists.
「 The coffee used in the dinner party in the US White House is Kona coffee 」
「 Grandfather, sure, this coffee is amazing, but… 」
「 The reason why Kona coffee is used at the White House dinner is because Hawaii is the only place in the United States where coffee is produced as a commodity 」
「 That’s because the best coffee in Hawaii is Kona 」
「 Well, that’s true 」
「 The dinner parties in the White House is for the foreigners, and so they have to pick materials within the US as much as possible. It’s a great way to advertise the American agricultural produce and alcohol. However, despite their size, Hawaii’s the only country that produces coffee as a commodity 」
「 However, Kona Coffee’s so rare, so tasty, that it’s priced too expensive 」
Jii-chan looked at me.
「 It’s true that the White House has no choice but to use Kona Coffee. But that doesn’t mean that Kona coffee is inferior to coffee from other countries, Blue Mountain or Kilimanjaro. Kona Coffee is wonderfully delicious. Now drink 」
I continue drinking the coffee. I smell the aroma.
「 Yeah, you’re right 」
「 Don’t be fooled with just words. You can use other people’s evaluations as a reference but don’t blindly believe them. Trust your own senses 」
「 What is valuable to you may be worthless to others. Still, cherish the fact that it’s worth it to you. Don’t let the public discourse fool you. Otherwise, you won’t be able to protect what you hold dear 」
I don’t care if the world makes fun of me. Even if they don’t understand, even if they don’t accept me…
I will continue to protect what is important to me.
Momoko-neechan and Torii-san are watching our family from the side, thinking that they understand us.
But they don’t.
Our true nature, that is.
「 Touching the real thing is the key to understanding. Finding out whether it’s real or not. If one doesn’t understand even after making contact, then they’re either absurdly dumb or their senses have become dull 」
Yeah, you’ll understand if you’re not that stupid.
This coffee is delicious. Furthermore, I know that this is expensive.
「 You can’t know what’s real by listening to people. There is a limit to that. No matter how tedious it is, the only way to get to know the real thing is to touch it yourself 」
Okay, let’s touch.
Give Torii-san real sex.
