「 Okay, does everyone have their meal? If it’s not enough just ask for it okay? 」
Agnes asks everyone.
「 Seems like everyone’s good to go 」
Nei said with a smile.
「 We’re all set here too 」
「 It’s prepared here too 」
Nagisa and Ruriko confirmed their surroundings.
「 Then, Papa, why don’t you give the signal? 」
I’m not fit to stand before everyone.
「 I guess Agnes can do it 」
She seems to be in high spirits for today.
She’s much more excited compared to when the Takakura sisters joined the family and she met Luna who’s at the same age as her.
Rie, Eri, Haiji, Kinuka, and Arisu who are a year older than her, and Mizushima Karen-san who’s at the same age as her.
It seems that she’s happy that there’s more to the young girls’ group.
「 Then, Agnes will do it! 」
「 That’s nice. Agnes-chan is so cute 」
「 True. She’s got the charm to stand before everyone 」
The twins said.
「 What are you talking about, Rie-chan and Eri-chan are cute too! 」
「 Of course, everyone’s cute. Papa never picks girls who aren’t cute! That’s why Agnes and everyone do their best to have Papa love us more and more! 」
She says loudly.
「 Haa, true. Thinking about it, all the cute girls in here do it with Onii-san
Eri speaks ambiguously since Mao-chan’s here.
「 Yeah. I mean, Onii-san got some nice taste. The girls in here are all beautiful 」
Eri looked at the people in the dining table and sighed.
「 I mean. Eri-chan and Rie-chan too! You girls are cute too! 」
「 Oh true, Koyomi-chan and Karen-chan haven’t done it yet. But, their bodies are too small, they’ll do it once they’re big enough! So for now, just eat a lot to grow a lot! 」
That’s true for Koyomi-chan but I haven’t checked if Mizushima Karen can handle it yet.
I mean, I’ve been too busy since yesterday.
It’s Misuzu’s idea to take her in as a pet but let’s take it easy with her.
There’s no need to rush.
「 Huh? Agnes-chan, what about Mao? 」
Mao-chan asks curiously.
Her name isn’t mentioned so she feels like she’s being left out.
「 Mao-chan, you need to eat a lot to grow big too! Then, Papa will give you something good 」
「 Something good? 」
「 You have to look forward to it once you’re big! 」
That reply went smoothly.
Agnes was a silent girl who’s been confined in the basement until half a year ago, but now she loves talking like this.
「 Agnes-chan, I’m hungry now. Let’s start already 」
「 Oh right, sorry, desuno. Well then, let’s eat everyone! 」
「 Let’s eat 」
Then, our dinner started.
「 Onii-san, how is the hamburger? 」
「 For us, it’s common to cook the meat to well-done 」
「 If you don’t like it that way, then sorry 」
The twins cooked the hamburger steak.
「 No, this is delicious. I have no complaints about the roasting 」
「 That’s great 」
「 Agnes-chan told us that you might not like it well-done 」
「 Really? 」
I looked at Agnes.
「 I mean, Eri-chan was roasting it too much 」
「 Oh, Katsuko mostly cooks medium-rare steaks 」
「 True. If it was me, I wouldn’t cook it to well-done 」
I called Katsuko-nee from the kitchen before she could grill the burgers.
Then, it became uncontested.
Eri and Rie took control of the frying pan as Mana supervises the kitchen.
「 Uhm, in my case, it’s our habit to make sure that everything’s well-done 」
「 Yes. It’s scary in various ways to not let it fully cook in fire because of our circumstances 」
Foods are not as great in the twin’s home in Kansai.
Their Yakuza parents were that irresponsible.
「 This is delicious on its own. Indeed, so far, I might be pushing my own tastes to everyone. I’m glad to have girls who can cook added to the group 」
Katsuko-nee tells the twins with a smile.
「 That’s nothing worthy of praise, right? Rie-chan 」
「 Yeah, Eri-chan. We didn’t do anything big 」
「 That’s not true. Your taste is quite interesting. I think you girls may have a talent in cooking 」
Katsuko-nee immediately recognizes their talents.
This time, it’s cooking.
「 Next time, try out eating my medium-rare hamburgers. Don’t worry, I only use fresh ingredients. Let’s try out various recipes 」
「 Teach Agnes and everyone too 」
「 Yes, of course. Those who want to learn can come 」
「 That’s great. Luna and Koyomi-chan and Arisu-chan will come 」
「 Huh, what about Mao? 」
Mao-chan seems dissatisfied again.
「 Sure, teach Mao too. You can knead the burgers again 」
Nagisa smiled at her beloved daughter.
「 Mao loves doing that! Kneading meat! 」
「 Mitama-oneesama, I think that we need to show our strengths to everyone too 」
「 You’re right 」
The Anjou sisters looked at each other and said.
「 We have enough bodyguards 」
「 Yes, you don’t have to add in 」
Michi and Edie stopped them.
「 If you don’t know what you want to do, then try helping out in the bakery 」
「 Yes, that’s right desuno! Our girls help out in the bakery 」
「 Koyomi-chan and I also help out 」
Agnes and Luna said.
「 Bakery? 」
「 That’s right! All of the girls in the group has to learn how to make bread 」
Nei tells Mitama.
「 I wonder if I can do that, Onee-sama? 」
Kinuka asks her elder sister worriedly.
These sisters never did anything but practice their Anjou secret arts since childhood.
「 Let’s have them teach us. Then, let’s learn. We are now a member of this group 」
Arisu told Mitama and Kinuka.
「 Uhm, you don’t have to worry about it. Everyone’s kind, they’ll teach you kindly 」
Koyomi-chan who doesn’t speak a lot speaks to the new members of the family.
「 Speaking of which, uhm, is there anyone else in this family? 」
「 Err, the ones not present, Minaho-chan, Rei-chan, and Margo-chan, then… 」
「 You know Minaho-san, don’t you? She was just in this room earlier 」
「 Fujimiya Reika-oneesan and Margo-oneechan was in the party with Arisu-san yesterday 」
During the exhibition match at the party for the young ladies yesterday, Rei-chan and Margo-san did fight Kyouko-san and Miss Cordelia.
Haiji, Mitama, and Kinuka were there.
「 Kyouko-chan comes over sometimes. It’s a bit noisy when she does 」
「 But, Kyouko-san is a kind person, isn’t she? 」
Nagisa follows up in a hurry.
「 Yeah. Sometimes, but she’s mostly noisy
Mao-chan’s evaluation of her is harsh.
「 You see, there’s also Yukino-chan, Megu-chan, and Ai-chan waiting back in the Kuromori mansion 」
Nei returns to the topic.
「 Yukino-chan and Megu-chan sees this mansion as “away,” so they didn’t come with us 」
Hey now, Agnes.
「 Hey, Agnes-chan. Yukino-chan’s stomach is already big, and Megu-chan had her club activities 」
Nagisa corrects her.
「 Besides, Ai-chan likes to take it easy so she’s waiting back at home 」
Hearing that, Agnes’ face shows that she realized something.
「 You see, Ai-chan listens to people a lot 」
She tells the twins and Arisu.
「 She takes everything slowly, she’s an easygoing girl. But, that doesn’t mean that you can laugh at Ai-chan, okay? After all, Ai-chan takes everything at her pace, and that’s not bad at all! Besides, Ai-chan is an amazing girl! 」
「 You’re right. Ai-chan joined in the family much later than us and yet she’s getting better at making bread 」
「 That girl has a natural gift, a hardworking girl 」
「 That’s right, desuno. Ai-chan is a hardworking girl. That’s why you must not make fun of her effort! Ai-chan is amazing you know 」
So that’s how Agnes thinks of Ai.
「 We won’t judge from appearances or make fun of her 」
「 We’re scared to do that 」
「 I mean, yeah, Rie-chan 」
「 Yeah, you’re right, Eri-chan 」
The twins looked at each other.
「 In this family, there’s Luna-chan and her sisters who have that mysterious power 」
「 Then, extremely strong Onee-san exist too 」
「 And someone really rich 」
「 The people in here are quite amazing 」
「 They’re all different from how they look like 」
「 They’re above their looks 」
「 That’s why hearing full stories about someone having power is already enough for us 」
「 Yes. If I hear them all, we might not be able to stand up in fear 」
「 In the end, it’s not just beauties who surround Onii-san 」
「 They’re all highly skilled women 」
「 Katsuko-oneesan’s skill is almost of a professional chef 」
「 Mana-oneesan and Ruriko-oneesan are skilled at cooking too 」
「 Then, Mao-chan helps out in a lot of ways so she doesn’t feel bored 」
「 And everyone’s kind to her 」
「 If it was our Mother, she’d shout “Shut up, don’t come close to me” and kick small children 」
That’s how the twins see it after watching Katsuko-nee and the girls in the kitchen.
「 I guess it’s the cultural experience if you ask me 」
The difference in culture from Kansai Yakuza’s family to our family.
「 But, our culture isn’t the right one either, and the culture you had so far is not all wrong either. Don’t think of it as an absolute 」
「 This well-done hamburger steak you made is also delicious. I don’t see my medium-rare hamburger as the only correct way of cooking food 」
We’re not in the right.
「 Denying our past and completely affirming with the new life is not okay. You may feel better by doing that but if you deny your memories on some things that you have to remember, erasing it from your memories, that’ll make it hard for you to understand anything 」
Oh. Katsuko-nee’s right about that.
Their memories from their parents aren’t all bad.
The twins are denying their past, because…
This morning, their parents died cruelly, and that fact is…
They strongly feel that they have to completely abandon their past as they joined our family.
「 Somehow, I don’t get it right now but I’ll remember that 」
「 Me too, I’ll remember that 」
Rie also shows an unclear face.
The twins are still young and so they can’t objectively look at their current mental state.
Currently, they want to erase all the memories they had from Kansai.
They want to see us as amazing people.
They understand Katsuko-nee’s worry but they can’t find sense about it.
We have to watch them and be careful about it.
They’re holding their emotions due to the tension of the new environment, but…
It’s likely that they suddenly have a flashback of their past and get attacked by an incredible sense of loss.
That also applies to Mitama, Kinuka, and Arisu.
I must not be careless and have to check their state all the time.
From now on until long.
That’s what it means to live together.
As soon as you overestimate that they’re okay, that’s when you lose them.
「 Err, let’s return to the girls who are staying at home 」
Oh right, it’s not just Agnes she wants to talk about.
「 Yukino-chan’s got some time where she’s a bit of a bully but she’s a good girl 」
「 Yes, that, she speaks harshly but she’s kind. I mean, she’s just a shy girl 」
「 Yukino’s thoughts always go “Hmph, geez,” 」
「 Like when Onii-san has other girls, especially Misuzu-san, sticking to him. She goes “Hmph, geez” She doesn’t think that way a lot with Megumi-oneesan though 」
Oh, I see.
「 That’s right. If she’s that tilted then she could’ve just come to Sensei and hugged him, I always think that way 」
「 Yukino-san just watches from afar and thinks “Hmph, geez” 」
Oh right, that girl’s ashamed to come at me by herself.
「 Just leave her alone. Yukino-chan’s a lion with no courage. She’s always been bad at that 」
「 Yukino-san wants to get along with Mana-san more 」
「 She feels uneasy because her conversations with Mana-san is lacking, despite being sisters 」
Mana came from Shriasaka Maika to Yoshida Mana.
She now calls Yukino “Yukino-san,” most of the time.
Yeah, they hardly talk at all.
「 Yukino-san feels worried but she’s not making the approach, that hasn’t changed. She still thinks that people move for her 」
「 Mana 」
I look at Mana.
「 I know. Onii-chan. I’ll think about it. I’ll find a good way. But still, if Mana’s the first one to talk to Yukino-san, nothing will change about her. She’ll always wait for the favor 」
Yukino never moves willingly.
She lives together with us and yet she never participates in housework nor bakery work.
She talks to Megu or Agnes but never with Misuzu and Ruriko.
「 Yeah, I’ll talk to her once we’re back in the mansion 」
I told Mana.
「 Haaa, You know, Yukino-san is like. “Hmph, geez” Right? 」
Mana, her real sister, sighs.
「 Also, the last one is Megu-chan 」
Agnes returns to the topic.
「 You all have to be careful with Megu-chan 」
「 Megu-chan gets angry easily, and she always nags and scolds us 」
「 Yeah. Megumi-oneechan’s got a low trigger point 」
「 I know that she’s angry because she’s worried about us but, I think that her anger is too much 」
「 Megu-chan need to fix her foundation or she’s hopeless 」
「 You know that Megu-chan’s going to feel uneasy again after we bring so many new girls home 」
Megu gets in a bad mood fast.
If I bring home so many new girls in two days…
「 Well, we already know that so Yo-chan’s going to deal with her 」
It’s going to be war once we return home.
「 Onii-sama, would you like some break time before returning? 」
Ruriko speaks up.
「 What do you mean? 」
「 What I mean is that we can come home first with the new family members before Onii-sama returns 」
I’m going home later?
「 Onii-sama, you still have something else to do in this place, right? 」
「 Well, what’s going to happen if I don’t come home together with you? 」
「 Megumi-oneesama’s emotions are strong when it comes to Onii-sama, Yukino-san, Mana, and Agnes-chan 」
「 Megumi-oneesan has a strong response when it comes to Onii-sama and her sisters 」
Putting me aside.
Yukino, Mana, and Agnes are Megu’s sisters from a different mother.
Speaking of which, she doesn’t shout at Ai.
「 But when it comes to Misuzu-chan or me, she’s not harsh at all 」
「 Yomi too! 」
Megu’s no match against the daughters of the Kouzuki house and the Takakura sisters.
Oh, I guess that’s Megu’s insecurity at work.
「 Therefore, we will return first, introducing everyone to Megumi-oneesama. Then, once it’s done, Onii-sama can explain why they joined the family 」
If I join them coming home, Megu’s going to be emotional and will come at me, but…
If I use some buffer before I return home…
Megu’s reactions would have calmed down.
「 I think that’s a good idea 」
「 Megumi-sama’s problem is that she depends on Kou-sama a lot 」
Megu depends on me.
「 If Kou-sama’s not present, Megumi-san won’t have anyone to throw her emotions to and so she could accept the situation calmly 」
If Tsukiko says so, then we should go with that.
「 Well, that’s okay. Anyway, I’ll be careful with that Megumi-san 」
「 So, is that all? 」
「 Err, what’s left isn’t from the family but Kana-chan comes over to play sometimes 」
Oh right, Kana-senpai comes over too.
「 Also, that Russian girl, she comes over sometimes 」
「 Russian? 」
「 Her name’s Anya-chan 」
The Russian-American subordinate of Miss Cordelia.
Nikita Gorbachev. Or Anya comes over from time to time.
「 I think that’s everyone for now 」
「 Wait, that’s not all Agnes-chan 」
Mao-chan says in a hurry.
「 You forgot one 」
「 Oh right, now that you mentioned it 」
「 That would be my sister who causes a lot of trouble 」
Michi speaks embarrassed.
「 Well, she sure is a freeloader 」
Mao-chan and Agnes see Kudou Haruka that way, I guess.
Well, it’s true.
She doesn’t have sex with me, she doesn’t help out in the housework or bakery.
She’s only training Karate.
「 Haruka-chan’s a freeloader and yet she’s a glutton 」
