「 Well, it can’t be helped 」
「 Kuromori-sama?! 」
It wasn’t Kurama Misato-san nor Arisu who raised her voice of surprise but…
It was Torii-san.
「 Kuromori-sama, do you intend to accept these girls? 」
It’s not about that.
「 Well, Kinuka-san is okay, as for Mitama-san, I can’t decide yet 」
I look at the Anjou sisters, at Kinuka-san.
「 Kuromori-sama, why is that? 」
Arisu asks me this time.
「 I already took Arisu in. Accepting Arisu means accepting everything related to you, right? 」
I looked at Arisu.
「 These sisters have no other life other than being Misato-san and Arisu’s bodyguard. I mean, their life depends on that job. It’s the master’s responsibility, Arisu’s responsibility why they became that way. If that’s the case, I can’t just leave them alone 」
「 That’s why I have to do something about them. They’re Arisu’s precious servants after all 」
Arisu stares at me.
「 If I’m taking them, then they have to be sex slaves. I won’t accept them as a bodyguard. I’m sorry to say that 」
The Anjou sisters can’t do work for the Black Forest.
「 I mean, Black Forest’s work is the brothel and so there’s the choice of making them prostitutes, but, the Black Forest has a rule of not using girls that are too young as prostitutes 」
I look at Kinuka-san who is wearing a micro bikini.
Yeah, she’s just as flat as Michi.
Well, not as much as Michi.
I can see a bit of swell on her chest.
She’s petite but she has nice meat on her ass.
She seems healthy too.
I think that her body can endure sex.
「 Therefore, I’ll take Kinuka-san as my sex slave. She has to look for what she wants to do in the future while she’s my sex slave 」
Then, I looked at Mitama-san.
「 As for Mitama-san, you have the choice of joining Misato-san as a prostitute if you’re coming to the Kuromori house 」
I’m making it clear to them.
「 I mean, the brothel is under Minaho-neesan’s territory. I have to talk to her about that 」
I don’t think that Mitama-san will be a good prostitute, but…
I guess I’ll talk to Minaho-neesan at least.
We indeed lack young prostitutes in the new Black Forest.
Mitama-san is a beauty and she has good proportions.
I mean, she’s voluptuous.
I can see it now that she’s wearing a micro bikini but…
Her breasts are huge.
She’s got a voluptuous body that she could become a gravure idol.
「 No, it’s unnecessary 」
Kurama Misato-san’s servant, Mitama-san…
「 Mitama, as your master, I order you to become Kuromori-sama’s sex slave. Okay? 」
「 Certainly, I’ll do as you command 」
Mitama-san immediately nodded.
「 By the way, Misato-ojousama, what are the duties of a sex slave? 」
「 I also want to ask the same question since earlier 」
「 Didn’t I teach you about it a lot earlier? It’s sex 」
Katsuko-nee who took her time to give the girls sex education speaks with a fed-up tone.
「 Yes, we understand about the act of sex that the people do. Also, we understand that it produces a child 」
「 I also had scales fall before my eyes. To think that you had to go through such process to give birth to a child 」
「 That means you understand what sex means, right? 」
Katsuko-nee asks once again.
「 Yes, but, it’s got nothing to do with us 」
「 Nothing! 」
The Anjou sisters replied.
「 Why do you think so? 」
Misato-san asks worriedly. Mitama-san.
「 We sisters devote our entire life to Misato-ojousama and Arisu-ojousama 」
「 We won’t bear a child 」
「 Well, then that would mean that your clan will die out 」
「 We can leave the survival of our clan to our big brother 」
「 We’re women so we don’t need to succeed the Anjou house 」
「 We can continue to protect Ojou-sama until we die 」
「 Likewise 」
Oh, they have a brother.
「 Right, I’ll make it easy for you to understand 」
Misuzu speaks to the sisters as she thinks.
「 Right… Sex slaves are Danna-sama’s concubines. That was the explanation from earlier 」
Oh right, we did tell them that it’s my relationship with Arisu.
「 Therefore, I want Mitama-san and Kinuka-san to become Danna-sama’s concubines too. Now, do you understand? 」
「 I see. So that’s how it is 」
「 Hmm. Mitama-oneesama 」
「 Yes, Kinuka 」
The sisters looked at each other.
「 We’re going to refuse that offer 」
「 Refuse 」
I guess they still want to be bodyguards?
「 We sisters are on a different status than Arisu-ojousama 」
「 Different! 」
「 If Arisu-ojousama becomes Kuromori-sama’s concubine, then… 」
「 It would be blasphemy to become Kuromori-sama’s concubine too! 」
「 Blasphemy! 」
「 We will not allow ourselves to be in the same status as Ojou-sama 」
Oh, so that’s it.
The sisters who lived as servants think that they can’t be the same as their Masters
Err, what do we do then?
「 Geez, you two really don’t get it 」
Michi moves forward with her expressionless face.
「 You do know the difference between the empress, court lady, and court lady attendant, don’t you? 」
Huh, Michi, why are we having a history lesson now?
「 The empress is the legal wife of the Emperor 」
「 The court lady are those of the high-rank from the imperial family and ministerial families among the Emperor’s concubines 」
Kinuka-san replies this time.
「 And the court lady attendant refers to the member of the chief councilor family or a lesser noble family 」
Oh, Mitama-san and Kinuka-san are smart for real.
「 That’s right. The empress, court lady, and court lady attendant are all wives of the emperor. Of course, some receive more favor due to their status, but some concubines are not formal 」
Michi speaks to the Anjou sisters.
「 Master’s legal wife is Misuzu-sama. Kurama Arisu-sama is a concubine with high status, that means, she’s a court lady 」
「 I see. There’s a difference in status 」
Mitama-san slaps her knee after the realization.
No, she really did it.
It’s my first time to see someone put the expression “slap the knee upon realization,” into action.
「 You mean to say that you want us to be in the status where we can look up at Arisu-sama as her attendant? 」
「 Hmm 」
The Anjou sisters are convinced, but…
「 Wrong 」
「 There are many in the court lady attendant status. You girls will not be accepted as an official concubine, even if you serve him. That’s what sex slaves are 」
「 I’m in that place 」
Michi told the sisters.
「 Kudou Michi-sama is? 」
「 Michi-sama, weren’t you Misuzu-sama’s bodyguard? 」
The Anjou sisters ask with a straight face.
「 I am Misuzu-oneesama’s bodyguard and Master’s sex slave at the same time 」
「 The two of you only think of the present, but I think of the future 」
「 Future? 」
The sisters got hooked by Michi’s talk.
「 Yes. Someday, Misuzu-oneesama will bear Master’s child. By that time, I must become the wet nurse and the bodyguard of the child 」
Must? Why do you make it sound like it’s already decided?
「 The future successor of the Kouzuki house will drink milk from my breasts. I believe that it’s the greatest joy as a woman, as someone who serves the nobility 」
Mitama-san slaps her knee again.
「 Wonderful! That’s indeed true! 」
「 Arisu-ojousama’s child, my milk…I see. I see! 」
Hey, don’t get excited from that you two.
「 We carry the child in our bosom and protect it. This is something only we can do as the female bodyguards! 」
「 The future head of the Kurama house…vigorously drinking my milk…Uuuuu 」
No, calm down you two.
「 However, that would mean that I need to get pregnant before Misuzu-sama 」
「 You can’t produce milk unless you’re pregnant 」
「 I-I see! 」
「 I see. That’s true! 」
「 Therefore, you must get pregnant from a man 」
Michi looked at me.
「 If that’s the case, I would like to get pregnant with Master’s child 」
She speaks with her usual deadpan look.
「 I will get pregnant from the same seed as my lord, Misuzu-sama. Then, the child I’ll give birth to will become siblings with Misuzu-sama’s child 」
「 I-Is that okay? To have the servant’s child become siblings with the Master’s child? 」
Mitama-san asks. Misuzu;
「 I allow it. I trust Michi from the bottom of my heart, and I love her too. I’m happy to see that Michi has resolved herself to give birth to Danna-sama’s child 」
She speaks clearly.
「 Then, my child will become Misuzu-oneesama’s child’s bodyguard. I will train the child to make it happen. Siblings from a different mother…my child will protect its sibling for the rest of its life 」
「 T-This is beautiful 」
「 As expected of a genius 」
Anjou sisters are getting too excited.
「 Mitama-oneesama, I want to be like Michi-sama 」
「 Kinuka, you think of the same thing 」
「 Yes. If Arisu-ojousama’s giving birth to Kuromori-sama’s child as a concubine, then I would like to offer my milk 」
「 If that’s the case, Kinuka, do you also want Kuromori-sama to impregnate you? 」
「 If that’s okay then by all means! 」
Seeing the two get excited, Misuzu;
「 Well, I wonder about that 」
She pours cold water on them.
「 Are you girls worthy of receiving Danna-sama’s affection? 」
Misuzu looked at me.
「 Danna-sama is a proud man, if you don’t deserve his love, then he won’t give it to you 」
Mitama-san and Kinuka-san looked at each other.
「 What do you think, Mitama-oneesama? 」
「 Indeed, we never thought of a life other than being a bodyguard so far and so we might be lacking in womanly charms 」
「 True 」
「 That’s not it. That’s not the problem 」
She gets up and kneels before me.
「 I, Kurama Arisu will serve Kruomori-sama as a concubine for the rest of my life. I will follow Kuromori-sama’s commands no matter what. If it is against what Kuromori-sama says, I will have to refuse, even if that is an order coming from Father or Misato-oneesama. Also… 」
What’s wrong? Why is she doing another slave declaration?
「 I will work hard to receive love all the time. I’ll do my best in learning how to become a good mother for Kuromori-sama’s children. Of course, I will also advance in sex to please Kuromori-sama. No, please teach Arisu. Arisu will become the woman Kuromori-sama wants me to be. Also… 」
Arisu looks for words to say.
「 Arisu will only entertain Kuromori-sama and no other man. From now on, I will not talk to any other men but Kuromori-sama. Even if it’s Father, I will never talk to him. My mind and body all belong to Kuromori-sama, also… 」
Arisu looked at Misuzu and the girls.
「 Everyone, please look after me. I still don’t know anything… Please guide me. Please treat me as someone from the lowest seat. I ask from the bottom of my heart 」
「 What’s wrong, Arisu-chan? 」
「 You don’t even have to say that, you’re already family 」
Eri and Rie say, but…
「 No, I thought of myself as a daughter of nobility, and have been impolite with everyone. I apologize for that. I currently am in the lowest status. A girl who stands in the lowest status among Kuromori-sama’s concubines 」
Arisu looked at me again.
「 Please, do not leave me. Please make me, Arisu, Kuromori-sama’s woman. Thank you 」
Then, she bows her head.
I get that Arisu’s doing this to show the Anjou sisters that she’s prostrating herself.
But, what’s her goal?
「 Mitama and Kinuka saw Arisu’s determination, right? 」
Kurama Misato-san asks her servants.
「 Arisu’s like this now. If you want to become Kuromori-sama’s concubines, then you must have the passion and resolve 」
Misato-san is serious.
「 Do you have the same passion and resolve as Arisu right now? Would you show the same respect affection to Kuromori-sama? Are you determined to throw away your life and live for Kuromori-sama? 」
「 I, Arisu, respect Kuromori-sama from the bottom of my heart. He has such a noble spirit. Kuromori-sama will always prioritize us over himself. He’s thinking of our happiness with all his best 」
「 I don’t want Mitama and Kinuka, girls who only think of themselves to stay by Kuromori-sama’s side 」
「 Likewise 」
「 Arisu-sama, Misato-sama 」
「 I-I-I’m very sorry! 」
The two shrunk down as their Masters scolded them.
「 I don’t think you should be here unless you have the same resolve as Arisu gave Kuromori-sama just now 」
「 Kuromori-sama too, I’m glad that you say that you accept Mitama and Kinuka for our sakes but, these girls will only cause trouble 」
「 Yes. Misato-oneesama is right. I’m thankful that you took Mitama and Kinuka’s fate in consideration but I don’t think that they can go in like that 」
Even Arisu says that.
「 Kinuka, I do not want you, who currently has a lowly attitude, to give milk to my child. I won’t allow that 」
「 Uuu, Arisu-ojousama?! 」
「 It’s no use trying to use tears 」
「 Let’s step on the brakes for now. We’re approaching a standstill 」
「 I think that we raised a good question. These girls need some time to think about it 」
They need some time to think objectively.
「 Mariko too 」
Edie looked at Torii-san and smiled.
「 Mariko-san, what have you been worrying about since earlier? 」
Misuzu asks with a smile.
「 Why don’t you talk about it? 」
「 T-That’s… 」
「 You can’t agree to the fact that Danna-sama immediately accepted these sisters, can you? 」
「 What does that mean, Misuzu? 」
「 Danna-sama didn’t choose Mariko-san and yet, he accepted the Anjou sisters, and you can’t understand why 」
「 No, well, t-that’s not it 」
Misuzu said. Torii-san replies in a panic.
「 Then, what is it? 」
「 T-That’s… 」
Torii-san looked at the Anjou sisters.
「 I-I’m a foolish woman, and that was why Kuromori-sama didn’t choose me, or so I’m told earlier 」
Oh, she still minds it.
「 B-But, these sisters are…how do I say it? They seem much more foolish than me 」
「 Despite that, Kuormori-sama is willing to accept these foolish people…aah, what am I saying?! It’s that… 」
Is that so?
「 That’s not it, Torii-san… 」
「 Anjou-san are sure idiots, but they’re not fools 」
The Anjou sisters look at me curiously.
「 These girls are honest to themselves. They love Misato-san and Arisu-san, their Masters, and they are also faithful to their desires. They’re extremely honest and they show no other sid.e Therefore, they’re easy to understand and trustworthy 」
That’s how I feel it.
「 That is why I could accept them. I’m sure that they’ll cause some trouble but if you guide honest girls like them, they get fixed 」
I looked at the sisters and smiled.
「 I think that the Anjou sisters are worthy to join our family in the end. Well, it’ll take some time, however. But, I can take my time with them. Time is what I have 」
「 Those who aren’t honest are what I call foolish. Girls like those don’t know what to do. After all, they don’t even understand themselves. Therefore, they don’t act on such simple thought of “I want to do this.” Instead, they use reasoning on their head saying “Should be like this,” “Has to be like that,” imprisoned in such thoughts, thinking not of what they want but what has to be, because of that, everything becomes nonsense 」
Torii-san looked at me.
「 And because you use the reason that you “have to,” even though you “don’t really want to,” you don’t want to take responsibility for what happens. The thought “I actually didn’t want to do that,” will leave a strong mark. Even though it was you who did it 」
「 I don’t accept girls like those. After all, I don’t live for myself. Foolish girls will surely hurt our family, and so I can’t accept them 」
「 Right. Recently, people think of how “it should be,” or “has to be,” and act according to such. It’s merely to show their social ethics and justice but, it has no substance. It’s just reason 」
She said with a smile.
「 That’s indeed true. Even over the internet, more people make comments while only knowing sense of ethics and justice 」
「 People like them don’t move like how they think. They only think of “has to be like this.” They look at the reality and cope with it 」
「 As for Anjou-san, it’s bad for Kurama-san to just toss them away like that and so I thought of taking them in instead. Of course, I know that these girls are troublemakers but I judge that they’re within the acceptable range 」
「 It’s not “has to be,” but “this, therefore that.” That’s how Danna-sama thinks. He accepted Arisu-san, and so he thinks that he also has to accept Kinuka-san. That is why he made a fast decision 」
「 Mariko-san, your head is spinning around on what “has to be,” “need to be,” “but I actually want to do this,” that is why the answer is slow 」
Misuzu says with a smile. Torii-san listens then looked at me.
「 Then I am a foolish woman? 」
「 No, I don’t see it that way. It’s just that something’s holding your heart. If you can take that, I think that all your worries will go away 」
「 Something holding my heart? 」
Torii-san touches her chest.
「 It’s pride 」
「 Mariko, you have too much pride 」
