「 Please do not misunderstand…I hold no romantic interest in Kuromori-sama 」
「 However, I want to experience it at least once. I’m just thinking that it might be okay if it’s Kuromori-sama 」
She looks at me and laughs from her nose.
「 The fact that there’s no risk of pregnancy, and this is an opportunity for Kuromori-sama to follow me won’t happen again. Kuromori-sama’s surrounded by women who are much more attractive than I am
Well, I won’t be stalking Torii-san just because I had sex with her once.
My women watch me all the time.
I mean, I don’t have time between the family and the bakery.
「 I was always dissatisfied. Men play with various women and yet, we’re forced to keep our purity until marriage 」
「 True. Our school teaches us like that 」
Misuzu looked at Jii-chan
「 Grandfather, you wanted us to keep our chastity all the time, don’t you? 」
Jii-chan and the head of Kaan house put Misuzu’s super-high-class school into that shape.
Its purpose is to keep away the weird insects away from the young ladies, they remodeled an old prestigious school to become exclusive only for the young ladies of nobility.
Therefore, Misuzu’s school doesn’t allow children of upstarts to enroll.
They’re only allowed to enroll after a thorough investigation and found as a girl suitable for a school for the young lady of nobility.
「 Kyouko-kun scolded me in that regard. Telling me that the daughters of the nobility have lust too. I wanted to keep you away from the temptations but she’s right, we’re just suppressing you 」
「 Of course, we understand that too. We must not let men get their way to our bodies that easy. If we’ve done something disgraceful, it’ll defile our father and mother’s honor. It’ll cause trouble to the whole family 」
「 Umu. You may understand but, love is blind. Women who are under the impression that they’re in love will act as wild as they can. Besides, it’s not all hyena men who go after women with family background and assets. Worse, they’re scared of pure love. Young lovers see dying together as romantic 」
Dying together. Double Suicide.
「 You don’t know about the Mayerling incident or the Amagi-san murder-suicide case. The ones with the most problem in death are the people you leave behind. That is why we want to prevent the daughters of nobility to make contact with men as much as possible. If they make contact, the flames of romance will burn up 」
Jii-chan smiles wryly.
「 Although, I know that it’s excessive. It’s common for women to marry as soon as they graduate from school during pre-war. Back then, it wasn’t rare to have five or six siblings and so it’s no surprise that they marry early and have children at an earlier age. Teenage mothers are common. In that time, they say that young mothers with children are the sexiest but in reality, it’s those past their 20 」
Marrying in the middle of their teens, bearing a child, and becoming a mother in their 20’s.
Yeah, that sure is sexy.
They’re young and yet, they have full knowledge of sex.
「 I think humans are creatures essentially designed to marry and have children without waiting until they reach 20. That’s how it has been in the long history of humanity 」
「 However, with the higher income and wealth of the country’s citizens nowadays, they’re likely to marry later. That doesn’t mean that low-income means early marriage. There will always be women marrying in their teens in any country or age 」
「 Meaning, the increased average age of marriage is abnormal? 」
「 That’s right. It now takes longer to educate before entering the workforce, and it takes longer to become a full-fledged adult, therefore they get married later. It’s more expensive to fund education and advanced education, so you can’t casually have a lot of kids. It results in the decline of birth rate 」
「 If that’s the case, then shouldn’t it become normal to marry sooner and bear more children? 」
「 Naturally. If there are more children, their house’s influence grows larger. Their workers increase. If their daughter marries another family, their relationship strengthens. That’s how humans do it all the time. In royal families, the Austrian Empress Maria Theresa married at age 19 and had 16 children. There were 5 men and 11 women. Then, one of her daughters is Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France. You should know her. Her sisters are also married to the Duke of Parma and the King of Naples. Queen Victoria of Britain gave birth to 9 children; 4 men and 5 women. Her daughter married to German nobility. The British at that time were hostile to France and was deepening their relationship with Germany 」
Even in the upper class, those who need children keep on giving birth.
「 However, wasn’t the legal age for marriage in 19th century Victorian England 25 years-old? 」
「 That’s because of the growing success of the middle class during the industrial revolution. Victorian England was a unique Era. The whole nation suddenly became wealthy and their lifestyle changed, but their social system couldn’t catch up. The traditional social system still remained and so marrying someone whose lineage is similar to theirs, is nothing different from those with similar assets. You don’t have many options for finding your partner. Furthermore, the 19th-century Britain fought many wars with other countries. Their men continue diminishing. Women take maids as a profession, but still… 」
Maids? You mean ‘that’ maid?
「 Such a profession didn’t exist before the 19th century. Aristocracy originally used male servants, not women. Even now, look at the first-class restaurants. The waiters are mostly men. Using a female waitress drops the value of your restaurant. Women became employed in various positions because of the lack of men in society. Meaning, there were too many wars. Thus, more women had difficulty finding their marriage partner. Once they’re past 25 and they can’t find a suitable partner, they’ll give in and finally get married. Naturally, some women couldn’t find a spouse in their lifetime. Therefore, the “old maid” term has entered the second half of the 19th century and the start of the 20th century. It was a unique era 」
「 However, in the Victorian age, the daughters in the upper class were different. The marriage age for the daughters of nobility was low. At age 16, they’re introduced to the social world and look for a man to marry, and it’s normal for them to get married at age 18. Naturally, it’s for political reasons. Men who marry ladies of nobility are much older than them. It was ordinary for an 18-year-old woman to marry a man past his 30’s. In worst cases, they’d marry a nobleman in his 50’s 」
「 It’s inevitable. For male nobility, marrying means owning a mansion of your own. You can’t get married unless you’re at a certain age. However, this is where the problem appears 」
「 As one would expect, can a man hold his sexual desire until he’s past his 30’s? Can he keep his virginity until he’s married? The answer is obviously “No” Male aristocrats buy prostitutes to vent out their lust. The Victorians are supposed to be an austere culture with strong moral Christian moral consciousness at work but in reality, it was filled with prostitutes. As mentioned earlier, some women lost their husbands in the war and so there’s a surplus of women compared to men. Despite this, the industrial revolution led to a good economy in the cities. There were times when daughters who abandoned the countryside and went to the city fell into a dark path. Men of nobility could satisfy their sexual desires in any number of ways with such prostitutes. For men, that is 」
「 But what about the women of nobility? 」
「 As for the women of nobility, they’re raised inside the house from childhood. Tutors provide their education. Some daughters are sent to a women-only monastery. Then, when they reach age 16, they debut in society and find their marriage partner. Their parents manage it all. They hardly respect the will of their daughter. Then, they marry at age 18. They have to keep their chastity until marriage, and in case that they’re not virgins, it’ll become a big problem 」
Meaning, men can play around with prostitutes as much as they want…
While women have to keep their chastity until marriage.
「 That’s unfair 」
「 I think so too. Well, it’s a society from a hundred years ago so we can’t do anything even if we say that, but… 」
Jii-chan looked at Torii-san and Misuzu and the girls.
「 I’ve done the same thing 」
「 We have suppressed your lust. Well, it was a result of our feeling of wanting to protect you 」
Jii-chan looked at me.
「 Misuzu had sex with him somewhere I wasn’t watching 」
Misuzu had Nagisa look after Misuzu and yet…
Nagisa ignored Jii-chan and handed Misuzu to me.
「 I was indignant but after seeing Misuzu’s mental stability after that, I had no choice but to accept that her sex with him as effective 」
「 Ruriko as well. She’s become more beautiful after having sex with him. Her behavior and ambiance have become better. I assess that sex purifies their mind 」
「 Yes. Sex with Onii-sama is cathartic 」
Ruriko used a word I don’t know.
「 It means that it cleanses my mind 」
She smiled at me.
「 I can do anything embarrassing when Onii-sama’s watching and Ruriko can let loose. After all, Onii-sama will accept everything 」
「 That’s true. Each time I have sex with Danna-sama, my heartthrobs. And it doesn’t cool off 」
「 If this guy was just some gigolo you can find anywhere, Kouzuki house is over. However, it wasn’t the case. He’s a man who’s filled with excellence. He’s not going to betray Misuzu and Ruriko, and he has no ambition of taking over the Kouzuki house 」
「 That’s obvious. I’m just an idiot. I’m dumb so I can’t manage a big clan like Kouzuki house 」
I have no skill to make them move.
「 He understands himself. He’s humble. And, the best part is that he only wishes for happiness 」
「 ……！ 」
Jii-chan said. Torii-san and Yoshiko-san reacted.
「 Furthermore, he finds happiness meaningless unless his whole family is happy. He blindly believes such. That’s why he will never betray his family, and won’t try to live by himself. That’s why I trust him 」
Jii-chan looked at Torii-san.
「 Earlier, you talked about how dangerous he is. He will abandon his life without batting an eye if it’s for his family. He has no concept of living alone. AS you have pointed out, he trusts his family, but never those outside the group 」
「 But, all we have to do is follow up on that problem. His habit is to one-sidedly pour his love to his family, and so we’re to pour our love to him too 」
「 Yes, I love Danna-sama 」
「 We’ll never let Onii-sama be alone 」
Misuzu and Ruriko speak brightly. Yoshiko-san seems surprised.
「 Therefore, I don’t have to worry about him. Torii Mariko-kun, you’ve been with him for two days, haven’t you? You should’ve seen how many women love him and how much they hold up their love to him 」
My family holds up their love for me.
「 Yes, I’ve seen it enough 」
「 Now that it has come to this, I will speak honestly. I also have faith in Kuromori-sama. He’s a bit of a bad man but I believe that he’s worthy of trust. Therefore, I thought of offering my first time to him 」
She smiles gently.
「 No, that’s not it. I understand why Kouzuki-sama’s trying to persuade me in such a roundabout way 」
Jii-chan’s trying to convince Torii-san?
「 K-Kuromori-sama is not interested in having sex with me, am I correct? 」
Torii-san looked at me and suddenly blurted out.
「 No, Torii-san is a charming girl. You’re cute, you have a nice body, and so I’d like to have sex with you if possible 」
I said in a hurry.
「 If possible…that is 」
Torii-san smiles wryly.
「 I wanted to do it no matter what. My womb is itching for it 」
Then, she stands from her seat.
Torii-san then kneeled before me.
Pressing her hands in front of me.
「 I humbly ask, please take my virginity! 」
W-Why are you prostrating?
「 I don’t mind if it’s just one time, please make Mariko an adult! 」
「 No, wait, Torii-san. Raise your head 」
I said. But Torii-san pressed her forehead on the floor instead.
「 I have been incredibly rude to the man Kouzuki-sama’s expecting from and the man Misuzu-sama and Ruriko-sama loves. I’m very sorry, please find it in your heart to forgive me! 」
「 You finally noticed 」
「 All her discourtesy towards Danna-sama is discourtesy towards Ruri-tan, grandfather, and me 」
「 Saying “Please teach me about sex” so lightly while we’re watching is unforgivable 」
「 Yes! That’s why I humbly ask for it! If Kuromori-sama okay with it, then please enjoy my body 」
「 T-Torii-san. W-Why? 」
I don’t get why.
「 Mariko-san has become obedient now 」
「 She’s accepting the lust she’s been suppressing inside 」
Ruriko as well.
「 Yes. Mariko has lust inside her. I can feel it. I want to do it no matter what. After watching everyone have sex, I wanted to have sex tonight too 」
「 Oh, if you want to experience it then anyone can do it, can’t they? 」
Misuzu speaks teasingly.
「 No, I want Kuromori-sama! I’m asking Kuromori-sama! 」
「 Why Onii-sama then? 」
「 Because I won’t be scared if it’s Kuromori-sama 」
「 I believe that I can do it without feeling scared if I do it with Kuromori-sama 」
「 It’s not because you want to have a relationship with Danna-sama to get close to Ruriko, or me, right? 」
「 Yes. I, I just purely want to experience sex 」
「 Just because I had sex with Kuromori-sama doesn’t mean that I will get conceited. I promise that 」
「 Are you sure that you don’t want to enter Danna-sama’s family? Are you okay doing it only once? 」
「 Yes, I want to do it only tonight, just once. Please have sex with me 」
「 Your face says that you don’t know what’s going on 」
Jii-chan looked at me and laughed.
「 Yep, I don’t get it 」
I answered honestly.
「 Torii-kun’s paying her respects 」
Paying her respects?
「 Torii-kun told you to teach her about sex. While Misuzu and Ruriko are here 」
「 Yeah 」
「 Think about it. It’s not fun for the wife to see another woman flat-out asking her husband to have sex with her, right? 」
「 But, weren’t Misuzu and Ruriko recommending Torii-san to have sex with me? 」
「 That’s a separate story. You bring sweets when there’s a guest. However, you’re not allowed to eat it until they say that you can eat it, and the guest has to pay their respects before eating 」
Oh, Misuzu kept recommending Torii-san to have sex with me but…
If she suddenly asks for sex like that…
She has to ask for Misuzu’s permission first.
「 The reason why that happened is that Torii Mariko-kun see you as trivial 」
「 That’s right. That’s why she could comment how ‘dangerous’ Danna-sama is while we’re watching 」
「 There’s no danger. We always support and follow up Onii-sama 」
「 Meaning, Torii-kun thinks of you as some vassal of Kouzuki house. That’s why she spoke to me about her problem with you. Just like how you talk to the master about the servant’s problem 」
「 However, Danna-sama is no vassal of Kouzuki house. He’s the husband Ruri-tan and I serve 」
「 To me, you’re family. That’s why I’m giving you the most stocks in Kouzuki SS 」
Jii-chan treats me like family.
「 I’ve explained our relationship to her in various ways. Despite that, Torii-kun only noticed that you’re the most important man in the Kouzuki house just now 」
So, that’s why she hurried and prostrated herself?
「 So what’s this? Torii-san doesn’t actually want to have sex but she’s feeling guilty so she’s asking me while prostrating herself? 」
「 Not really 」
「 Yes. Mariko-san wanted to have sex with Danna-sama, that’s true 」
「 She wanted to have sex with Onii-sama and yet, she treated you like a vassal of Kouzuki house 」
「 That’s why she’s waiting for Danna-sama to invite her first 」
「 Unable to wait, she said “teach me” while we’re watching 」
「 She’s been arrogant, thinking that you probably want it too 」
「 In truth, it’s Mariko-san who wants it 」
Oh, it’s a problem of pride
Torii-san isn’t from nobility despite having the blood of one.
She feels insecure towards Kouzuki house, which is at the top.
However, far from nobility, I’m just an ordinary man.
I’m not born in a wealthy family managing a large company like Torii-san’s house.
Therefore, Torii-san thinks of me as someone lower than herself.
「 Danna-sama, from Mariko-san’s eyes, the behind-the-scenes work you’ve done yesterday and today made you look like a vassal of Kouzuki house 」
Oh, Tendou Sadao and the Yakuza.
I guess I look like an underling of the organization when I’m responsible for it.
I mean, that was a job for the Kuromori house.
Kuromori house isn’t a vassal of the Kouzuki house, but…
Torii-san doesn’t know that relationship.
She only saw Jii-chan give orders and we make our move.
「 She still hasn’t noticed it even after Grandfather talked about handing stocks of Kouzuki SS to Danna-sama, but when Grandfather talked about how he loves Danna-sama as family, she finally understood. That she’s been discourteous 」
「 No, I don’t think that she’s been rude to me 」
If she looks down on me, then it can’t be helped.
I have no presence, and I’m not someone Torii-san should bow to.
「 Danna-sama, you should notice by now that any impolite acts towards you are an insult to me, to Grandfather, to the Kouzuki house 」
「 We’ve shown yesterday that Danna-sama is a member of the Kouzuki house to the young ladies of nobility 」
「 That’s right. If anyone insults you, then Kouzuki house will use all it’s the power to crush them. And you must refrain from doing anything that would make other families laugh at you 」
The young ladies of nobility should know about me.
Jii-chan and I showed up together before the party started.
He showed everyone that he acknowledges me.
At that moment, the young ladies of nobility see me as a member of the Kouzuki house.
Torii-san, the only one who’s not from nobility, didn’t notice that.
She sees me as a commoner, looking down on me.
「 Even so, Torii-san wants to have sex with me? Really? 」
「 I want to do it! No, I’d like to do it please 」
Torii-san shouts while kneeling.
「 At first, I thought that you’re just a weird guy. But, gradually, I understood that you’re an earnest and honest man, that you’d have sex with various women in a heartbeat but you’re earnest in sex too, and so, Mariko also started to desire it! 」
Torii-san looked up to my face.
「 Mariko wants to do it! Mariko-wants to have sex! I admit I’m the one who wants to have sex! That’s why, please take me! Embrace me! If I’m not honest now, I will regret it for the rest of my life! 」
「 See? Agnes thought it would end up like that! 」
Agnes, Mana, and the twins peek from the kitchen.
「 It’s too stimulating for Mao-chan so she’s playing in that room 」
「 Yeah, Onii-chan. Nagisa-oneechan and Nei-oneechan’s with her 」
「 Still, Onii-san’s so vigorous 」
「 You’re taking her, right? It’s Onii-san after all 」
「 It’s okay! she’s the one who said that she wants to do it 」
Oh, Agnes noticed that Torii-san wants to have sex with me.
That’s why she didn’t react when Torii-san is in the dining table.
「 So, what about you, Yoshiko-chan? 」
「 Right. Yoshiko-san, I think it’s about time for you to abandon that pride of yours 」
「 They’re right. Yoshiko 」
Jii-chan looked at Yoshiko-san.
「 You’ve been acknowledged as the daughter of Kouzuki house half a year ago. Before, you were Ruriko’s attendant, a servant of the Kouzuki house. Despite that… 」
「 Yes, I… 」
Yoshiko-san speaks with a heavy tone.
「 I do not look at Kuromori-sama as someone lower 」
「 And this is why Onii-sama’s not taking you 」
「 Onii-sama always treats us as equals. He doesn’t see women as below or above him 」
「 Indeed, Yoshiko-oneesama’s been abasing herself when it comes to Danna-sama, you are trying to invite him to sex that way, don’t you? 」
But, from how Yoshiko-san speaks…
I thought that she doesn’t actually want to do it.
I don’t feel the seriousness in Yoshiko-san’s words.
「 That’s bad, Yoshiko-oneesama. You should know that I always ask Onii-sama for sex 」
「 Me too 」
Ruriko and Misuzu said.
「 Yep, that’s bad. Real bad 」
「 If you think that Onii-san will have sex with you even if you don’t show your panties, then you’re making a mistake 」
「 Speaking of which, look Onii-san, mine’s white 」
「 Me too…matching clothes with Eri-chan 」
The twins flip their skirt and show their white panty to me.
「 They’re having a serious talk there, you girls shouldn’t play around 」
Katsuko-nee showed up and scolded the twins.
「 Come, we’re going to this room 」
「 ‘kay 」
「 Can’t help it 」
「 Agnes-chan, go inside the kitchen 」
「 Onee-chan, good luck 」
Katsuko-nee, Eri, Rie, Mana, and Agnes goes back to the kitchen.
「 Anyway, can we put Yoshiko-san aside for now? It’s useless to blame her 」
「 So, Torii-san, are you serious about this? Do you want to have sex 」
「 Yes, I may be incompetent but please take care of me 」
I guess I have no choice.
「 Are you sure that you’re okay with a one-time relationship? 」
「 Yes 」
She won’t join in the family.
No matter how much sexual desire she has, I must not forget that she won’t join the family.
Torii-san will marry into another noble family for her house to join the nobility.
In that regard, Torii-san’s born by Torii house marrying into Kanou house.
She’ll become the bride of a man other than me in the future.
If I have sex with her now, there will be no next time. This is the first and last.
Can I have sex with her with those requirements?
「 Are you really sure about it? It’s your precious first time, you know? 」
「 I’m begging you Kuromori-sama!! 」
Torii-san’s driven to corner until she yielded to Kouzuki house, showing complete obedience to them.
That’s why her thoughts inside are coming out, becoming honest at fault.
「 Kuromori-sama, please go all out with my body! 」
Knowing what fear means becoming like this
「 What’s left is for Danna-sama to decide 」
「 Yes. It’s your choice, Onii-sama 」
Even if you tell me that…
「 I understand that I’m not such a cute girl. B-But, I beg you. Kuromori-sama! 」
It can’t be helped.
I’ll get ready.
「 Okay, sure, let’s do it 」
「 Thank you very much 」
I looked at Torii-san and thought;
Don’t overstep your bounds.
She won’t become mine.
I hear clapping sounds from the corridor.
「 My, that’s wonderful. To think that Mariko would become this honest!!! 」
「 To think that you can train such a stubborn girl in just two days. As expected. Don’t you think so too? Sebastianus 」
「 Yes, Momoko-ojousama 」
That’s Kaan Momoko-neechan.
The daughter of the Kaan house, a clan that stands alongside with Kouzuki house. Torii-san’s sworn sister.
And next to her is a beauty dressing as a man. Momoko-neechan’s bodyguard.
「 Misuzu, who’s she again? 」
「 Momoko-oneesama’s bodyguard, “Sebastianus,” or Yamada Umeko-san 」
「 Momoko-oneesama?! 」
Torii-san’s surprised with Momoko-neechan’s sudden appearance.
「 Don’t make that face. If you’re going to lose your virginity, isn’t it natural for your big sister to come to watch? That’s why I came here 」
You came here?
I mean, you’ve been in the mansion since when?
「 You won the bet. Misuzu-chan 」
「 I didn’t imagine that Mariko would fall in two days like that 」
