I left the room with Ruriko and Yoshiko-san.
「 Ruriko-sama, are you done with your conversation? 」
Erica’s waiting, smiling.
「 Yes, it’s over. Right, Yoshiko-oneesama? 」
Outside, Ruriko will call Yoshiko-san “Yoshiko-oneesama,”
「 Yes, Ruriko-sama 」
And Yoshiko-san returned to calling her with a suffix.
「 I’ll use that call. That way, the public will understand my position 」
Even when Yoshiko-san’s publicly announced as Jii-chan’s granddaughter…
She’s the illegitimate child of Jii-chan’s first son who died 10 years ago in America.
The vassals of the Kouzuki house had trouble in how to treat her.
For the time being, she’s treated as the third princess of the Kouzuki house, along with Misuzu and Ruriko, but…
Yoshiko-san is suffocated by that situation.
「 I think that everyone will be much more comfortable if I stand behind Ruriko-sama like before 」
Yoshiko-san also has inheritance rights to the Kouzuki house, like Ruriko and Misuzu.
Therefore, some would want to elevate Yoshiko-san, going after the assets of the Kouzuki house.
However, if Yoshiko-san rebuilds her relationship with Ruriko once again.
Yoshiko-san will follow the Ruriko faction.
「 That’s right. Please take care of me. Yoshiko-oneesama 」
「 Also, Erica-san, Erica-san has joined my group since yesterday 」
「 Yes! I’m in team Ruriko too! Please take care of me 」
Erica bows her head to Yoshiko-san with a smile.
「 Me too, my best regards 」
Misuzu, Michi, and Mariko come over.
「 Ruriruri’s going to start with the three of you 」
「 Yes, Misuzu-oneesama 」
Misuzu also knows the reason why team Ruriko had to start.
「 Right, it’s our motto to get along with everyone, but we also need to have a bit of tension if we consider the Kouzuki house 」
「 If Ruriko and I are together, then we would lose to Kaan Momoko-oneesama’s power 」
「 Yes, if each of us has a team we command, then we’ll have a stronger influence in the nobility 」
Ruriko becoming independent is pushed by Momoko-neechan too.
「 I mean, Mariko, you’re in team Misuzu? 」
I asked Mariko.
「 In school, for now. But when Kana’s in the mansion, I’m paired with her. That kind of affiliation is okay too, right? 」
Mariko who has the blood of the nobility is 16 years old. Instead of joining Ruriko’s team, who’s a year younger, it’s much better for her to join Misuzu’s group, who’s older when it comes to the young ladies’ group.
「 I think that we should ride separate cars when going to school. Either way, soon enough, we’ll have more girls to attend our school 」
Agnes, Luna, Koyomi-chan, and Yomi will soon have an entrance exam in Misuzu’s school.
「 Ruriko and I will be scouting which cars those girls will ride in 」
「 Karen too 」
I look at Karen who’s eating in the dining room with Arisu and the girls.
Misuzu planned to make Karen her pet, but she disliked it and now she’s in team Arisu.
But, Arisu and the Kurama house girls can’t go to that school anymore.
Karen’s got to change her team when going to school.
「 Let her ride in Ruriko’s car today, she seems to be afraid of me still 」
「 Ah, if it’s Mizushima-sama, then you can leave her to me 」
Erica, the closest age to her, said.
Karen is the daughter of the Mizushima house, and so even Erica, who’s older, calls her with a suffix.
Even so, Karen’s in her 6th grade and Erica’s in her Second year in Middle school.
In that school, everyone’s brought up from kindergarten, and since there are not that many students, they know each other.
「 Yes, please do, Erica 」
「 Yes, Ruriko-sama. I’ll go talk to her 」
Erica goes to Karen.
「 She’s lively and proactive. Ruriko chose a good girl 」
「 I need to find a girl like Erica-san too 」
Misuzu needs more trusted confidants to carry the huge Kouzuki house.
「 I’m sorry for being quiet 」
Michi apologized to Misuzu.
「 Oh my~ Michi can stay as Michi you know 」
Misuzu pats Michi’s black hair in a hurry.
「 That’s right. I also need to find my own bodyguard too 」
If they’re moving on different cars, then Ruriko would also need to have an exclusive bodyguard of hers.
「 Our bodyguards have increased though 」
I look around in the dining room, but…
Mitama and Kinuka are known to be the bodyguards of the Kurama house, and so they cannot be assigned as Ruriko’s bodyguards, as her family has a higher status than them.
I mean, Mitama appears on Yukino’s show, wearing a swimsuit as the cover girl so the public knows her face.
As for Kinuka, she’s got power, but she’s a bit slow as a bodyguard.
As for Haiji, she seems much more interested in a business that she’s following Nagisa.
As for Edie, it’s too late for her to change schools.
「 If you can’t find one in the house, then the only choice is outside. We’ve always done that 」
「 No, it’s already developed 」
「 Yomi-imouto has the aptitude for it. She’s already in the 2nd Kyu in Kudou-style arts 」
Yeah, while we’re working on the pastry in the early morning.
Michi and the girls practiced martial arts in the quadrangle of the mansion.
「 She can read minds, have the power to control enemy bodies, and she’s fond of martial arts. I think that there will be no problems if she’s Ruriruri’s bodyguard 」
「 Right, whenever we’re on public, we need to have Kouzuki SS guarding us all the time, but when it comes to the daily bodyguard, we can ask Yomi-chan to do that 」
Even if she’s a bodyguard of nobility, she’s not as strong as Michi.
It’s enough for her to have the ability to avoid various troubles as the attendant of a young lady.
「 Yomi-imouto will polish off her Kudou arts before the entrance exam. Luna-imouto should be able to show her skill to some extent too 」
「 What about Agnes and Koyomi-chan? 」
I asked. Michi;
「 Agnes-imouto has no combat sense. As for Koyomi-imouto, she needs to eat more and grow 」
Koyomi-chan’s in her sixth grade, and yet, her body is still in the middle grades.
「 Her body is too young that it hinders the muscle growth 」
「 Oh, I see 」
「 I’m sure that’s also the reason why my breasts aren’t growing 」
Michi says with a straight face.
Well, I wonder about that.
「 Eh, Kudou-senpai’s cute when small! 」
「 You’ve always been famous among us since before. You’re the top one among the seniors you want to take home 」
They’re in their second and third year in middle school.
「 Kudou-senpai’s called the cute, beautiful, small in our grade 」
Always expressionless, silent, and she’s small. As cute as the Japanese dolls.
「 Oh, right. Ordinary students don’t know how strong Michi is 」
She’s always by Misuzu’s side, but, it’s unknown whether she’s a bodyguard or an attendant.
「 I know that she’s amazing. She always shows some miraculous performance during the sports day every year after all 」
「 Huh? Sports day? You fight there? 」
「 Not at all. We’re attending an all girls’ school, and there are no crude events 」
Right, they won’t do some piggyback fight or topple pole.
「 Kudou-senpai’s got high power output and jumping power that when doing running long jump or pole vault, she’s always gathering everyone’s attention 」
Oh, so that’s it.
「 If Michi’s gathering that much attention, why is she not getting invitations from the track and field club? 」
「 There’s no such club in our school. We never participate in external contests after all 」
Michi said expressionlessly.
「 They’re all young ladies from good families, and so we don’t have clubs that require us to interact with unspecified outside schools 」
「 If there are joint meetings with other prestigious schools, such as tea, flower arrangement, or Japanese dance, then there is, but when it comes to sports-related club activities, we have to deal with other schools through district competitions 」
Having a match against ordinary school clubs, and if the young lady gets hurt, it’ll become a big deal.
「 If a boy from a co-ed school comes to talk to us aggressively, then the bodyguard of the nobility will kick him out 」
Oh right, guys who talk to girls from other schools during sports events do exist.
As it’s a school that takes care of young ladies, I guess they don’t want them to be involved in club activities that have external games.
「 For those who want to do sports, then they go for special private lessons instead of school 」
Furthermore, the rich have high-security classrooms.
「 It can’t be helped, there are restrictions. If you want to do some normal club activities, then you should enroll in schools that have those. In fact, some girls do move out when entering a higher level from middle or high school 」
If they can’t attend tournaments, then they’ll stop going to that school and become a student of another.
「 However, the daughters of nobility like us have no other option but that school 」
Ruriko tells me.
Jii-chan and the head of the Kaan house have that school under their protection, to keep the lineage of nobility safe.
They don’t enroll girls that are children of upstart or celebrities, no matter how rich they are.
Only the young ladies of nobility and children that Jii-chan and others accept can come in.
That’s why it has that status, but…
「 Err, if it’s sports, then what clubs do you have? 」
「 We have a tennis club. The upper class is fond of tennis. But, you can only enjoy it within school 」
「 Also, there’s swimming and dancing. I think that’s all. But if it’s culture clubs, there are a lot 」
「 As for the others, there’s horse riding, golf, and other stuff to enjoy in private. Some, like Kuromiya-san, enjoy martial arts, but she trains herself in her home dojo, not in school 」
Oh yeah, there’s that girl. The combat girl who uses a spear that came into the party the other day.
「 Basically, it’s mostly private sports. Mass sports are banned. It creates various disputes in the long run 」
There are power relations among the nobility, and you never know how they’re connected to each other through their parents’ business.
If you think of the student and parent relationship, the school teachers can’t make some sports teams.
I mean, they can’t even make a contest so there’s no meaning in making team sports.
The students in that school will only be competing against each other.
「 It’s quite suffocating in that school 」
I won’t say that they’re caged birds, but still…
There’s a lot of limits in their lives.
「 Yes, Kou. That’s why everyone’s bored and pent up 」
「 That’s why they had fun at the party in Kouzuki-sama’s mansion last time. There were so many events that they normally don’t have the chance to participate happening one after another 」
Kyouko-san’s intrusion, Rei-chan, and Margo-san’s beautiful skills.
Haiji and Kinuka’s brawl. Tendou Otome’s capture.
Sure, those were some absurd events.
「 Everyone’s starving for stimulation 」
Mariko hugs me.
「 And so, I’m addicted to sex with Kou 」
「 And get Momoko-oneesama addicted to it too, okay? 」
She whispered to my ear.
Right, we got that confrontation with Momoko-neechan.
Whether I could assault Momoko-neechan or Momoko-neechan can stop me.
「 Onii-chan, you need to hurry up and eat your breakfast. You don’t have time! 」
Right, we’re in the middle of breakfast.
「 Yeah, I got to hurry 」
「 Onii-sama, thank you 」
I hear Ruriko say from my back and I go back to the dining room in a hurry.
「 Yoshida-kun…hurry 」
Ai’s taking it slow, so she’s already done eating and is now drinking tea.
「 Danna-sama, if you have some time after breakfast 」
Oh, right? Morning peeing?
「 Sure 」
「 Ah, Kuromori-sama. Erica will show hers too! 」
Erica seems to want to show herself peeing to me too this morning.
「 Got it 」
「 Papa!! 」
Agnes runs to me and clings to my back.
「 Hmm, what’s wrong, Agnes? 」
「 Uu, Agnes will surely fail the entrance exam! Luna, Koyomi-chan, and Yomi will get in, but Agnes… 」
「 That’s not true. It’s going to be over soon, you got this, okay? 」
I embrace Agnes’ small body with my left arm while eating
「 Uuu, Papa!! 」
Agnes clings to me.
「 Ah, that’s unfair Agnes-chan! Mao too! 」
Mao-chan clings to my right arm.
Now I can’t eat.
「 Can’t help it. Yo-chan, open your mouth 」
Nei comes over laughing and puts bread in my mouth.
「 Ah, Nei-oneesan. That’s unfair! 」
「 I want to do that fun stuff too! 」
Hey, Eri. Rie…
We don’t have time! We’re busy in the morning!
As soon as Tsukiko clapped her hands, everyone in the room went quiet.
She’s using her Miko power.
「 Okay, quiet down everyone. Kou-sama, please 」
「 Yeah, thanks. Mao-chan, get on my lap 」
「 Okay 」
I’m still hugging Agnes on my left arm and Mao-chan’s riding my lap.
My right hand can now go back to eating breakfast.
「 Here, tea. Onii-chan 」
「 Thanks. Mana 」
I drank tea in one gulp.
「 Okay, come over here Mao-chan! 」
Yomi and Luna took Mao-chan.
I’m still embracing Agnes.
「 Okay, Misuzu, Erica. Let’s go 」
We need to go to the toilet so I can watch them pee.
This is the usual busy morning.
「 Yo-chan, we’re starting to bring in the pads! 」
「 We’ll do it 」
Nei, Edie, and Ai are going to the bakery.
「 Leave the house-watch to us 」
「 I’m here too 」
Mitama and Tsukiko tells me.
「 Yeah, please. I’ll get back right away 」
I replied while leaving the dining room.
「 Then, everyone else, line up! When Onii-chan comes back, we’re going to send him off with a kiss 」
Mana told the remaining girls.
「 Yes, yes, I get it 」
Yukino. Oh right, she’s going to skip school today.
「 You have it tough every morning 」
Shou-neechan, who came to pick up Misuzu and the girls laughed at the corridor.
「 I don’t mind. I’m doing it because I like it 」
I swore that I’ll do anything for my family.
「 This is fine 」
