「 That’s why I think that you’re a half-assed guard 」
Margo-san said then she departs.
Nagisa follows Margo-san and goes towards Mao-chan.
Reika’s hanging her head gloomily.
「 Reika-oneesan 」
Katsuko-nee talks to Reika gently.
「 Reika-oneesan already knows how it feels to be protected, right? 」
That’s why we call her Rei-chan.
「 I think that the idea Nei started of regressing Reika-oneesan’s puzzled heart to a toddler is good but, you’re reaching your limit, aren’t you? 」
Reika looks at Katsuko-nee silently.
「 If you feel the want to protect instead of protected, then it’ll be quite helpful in case of Reika-oneesan 」
「 Why is everyone doing their best? It’s not just me, the small children, Kuormori-sama, Yoshiko-sama, even considerate of Miss Edie. 」
Reika’s been listening to my conversation with Margo-san.
「 This is what a family is. 」 Even now Mana-chan and Michi-chan, Ruriko-san too are shifting their consciousness from the protected to the protector. Mao-chan’s attending to Agnes-chan 」
Katsuko-nee looks at the girls.
「 In this bathroom, Miss Edie and Reika-oneesan are the only ones pre-occupied with themselves 」
Yeah. The two of them are perplexed with nothing but themselves.
「 I think it is as you say 」
Reika soaks her mouth in warm water and blows bubbles.
Then, she washed her face.
She must be feeling faint-hearted.
「 Ojou-sama doesn’t evaluate Reika-oneesama that high. Especially the current one 」
Katsuko-nee speaks in a small voice.
「 I thought so. I believe that it’s unavoidable 」
Reika answers in low spirits.
「 Therefore, we’ll use that opportunity! 」
「 Reika-oneesan’s a top elite of Kouzuki security service, I also have seen your honest character and loyalty to Kouzuki family from the fight inside the hotel 」
Yeah, Reika’s too honest that she’s a very easy to understand warrior.
「 Ojou-sama’s certain that Reika-oneesan will never betray us! 」
Katsuko-nee declares composedly.
Does that mean?
「 What do you want me to do? 」
Reika asks with a serious look.
「 You’ll take him and Yukino-san as a hostage and escape the mansion! 」
「 Ojou-sama cannot leave Shriasaka Sousuke until the evening Margo-sama, and I will be chasing 」
「 It’s’ not good for Ojou-sama to complete her revenge without any disturbances. Let’s make at least one turning point 」
I don’t get it but, it’s not good for Minaho-neesan’s revenge to approach conclusion smoothly.
「 Yeah, let’s do it. Reika-oneesan 」
I ready myself
「 I 」
「 Believe in Margo-san and Katsuko-nee. The two of them were making plans, putting Minaho-neesan and our family in consideration 」
I have to go with the flow.
「 Reika-oneesan’s also family so, please 」
I look at Reika’s eyes.
「 This is impossible without Reika-oneesan 」
The lie we’re going to make is just make-believe.
Then, Minaho-neesan must not notice that.
If Margo-san or Katsuko-nee becomes the mastermind of the escape, Minaho-neesan will see it as a lie.
Both of them have a very long relationship with Minaho-neesan.
But, if it’s Reika,
Minaho-neesan can’t see through if she really betrayed or if it’s just a play.
Above all, Reika’s been worried about her way of being since the hotel incident.
Minaho-neesan was watching over the phenomenon of Rei-chan-fication last night.
If the stress explodes from her worries and hardships, it’s possible that she’ll go with outrageous behavior.
「 Also, it’s okay to take a bit more hostages other than you and Yukino-san 」
Katsuko-nee tells me.
「 It’s a rare opportunity you see 」
◇ ◇ ◇
We step out of the bath.
The young group wipes each other with bath towels.
Of course, I’m also wiping them off, but Mao, Ruriko, and Mana’s triangle surrounding Agnes are going well.
Edie’s sticking to Michi as usual but Nei wipes her body.
「 Danna-sama, please put on my underwear 」
Well, I thought this would happen.
I put on Misuzu, Megu, Michi, Ruriko, Agnes, and Mao-chan’s underwear in order.
Everyone’s the same, so Agnes doesn’t hesitate anymore.
「 Hey, hey, what about me? Me?! 」
No, Nei’s too glamorous, so it’s tough to put on her bra.
「 Amazing 」
I can feel the thick and heavy breasts hidden inside the bra cup.
Mao-chan speaks her thoughts.
「 Nufufufu, this is nice 」
Nei smiles, but
「 Does it not make your shoulders stiff? 」
Mao-chan’s poke is harsh.
Nei slips down
「 Mama always says that her breasts are too massive and her shoulder feels stiff! 」
Oh my, the fire spread to Nagisa as well.
「 I’m still young and energetic unlike Nagisa-san, so I don’t feel my shoulders getting stiff! 」
「 My my, I’m also still young and energetic you know! 」
The two beauties in their underwear compete for their pride.
「 Then, let’s’ have Katsu-nee the old and energetic! 」
「 What the hell, hey! 」
Katsuko-nee scolds Nei.
「 But still, Rei-chan’s skin is beautiful. It’s so fair and smooth even though you’re the eldest one here 」
Nei touches Reika’s skin.
Reika puts on her clothes without replying.
「 Huh, Rei-chan’s going back to her male suit? 」
Katsuko-nee prepared Reika’s clothes in advance but, it’s the usual cross-dressing suit.
「 Obviously. Reika-oneechan’s going to stay in Nagisa’s shop as her guard for today too 」
Katsuko-nee answers in her stead.
「 Right. Take care of us, ah, Mao’s coming home for today 」
「 Eh, why? We can look after Mao-chan!! 」
Mana speaks in disapproval.
「 It can’t be helped! Today is, well 」
Nei winks at Mana.
The revenge on Shirasaka Sousuke will be tonight.
We cannot have Mao-chan in the mansion in preparation for that.
.「 Ah, right! Then, I think I’ll go help out in the flower shop today. Oh right, let’s go Agnes-chan! 」
Mana said, but;
「 No. Agnes is not ready for places like the shop where there are many people. It’ll also cause trouble to Nagisa’s clerks 」
「 Ah, I see 」
Persuaded by Katsuko-nee, Mana laughs.
「 I have club activities for today 」
Megu wears her uniform.
She also has a practice with the women’s athletic club till evening.
「 Misuzu, what about you girls? 」
I ask Misuzu.
「 We’ll be returning to grandfather for once. I want to see his face 」
Yeah, it’s a bit worrying.
「 We’ll return at night I also want to stay in this case 」
Misuzu will be in the revenge too;
「 Michi? 」
「 I’m Misuzu-sama’s guard 」
Well, that’s obvious.
The two of them are wearing their uniforms from last night.
「 Here, your change of clothes 」
Katsuko-nee hands me a basket.
Inside is my student’s clothes.
「 Eh, why is it Onii-chan’s school uniform? 」
「 If everyone’s not coming back till evening then have sex with Mana and Ruri-oneechan. Oh right, let’s have Agnes-chan join in too 」
「 Don’t you feel sorry for the others? Besides, it’ll be a lot of work tonight so let me take a rest 」
「 Oh right, sorry 」
「 Mana, naked dogeza! 」
「 Ah, yes 」
「 Nonono, no need to get naked. You’re going to make me put on your underwear, right? 」
I hurriedly stop her.
「 Then, just like this! 」
A 14-year-old girl wearing only her underwear kneels.
「 Onii-chan, I’m very sorry! 」
Yeah, she’s entirely used to it.
「 Doesn’t sound sincere! As a punishment, you’ll duet with Misuzu, naked! 」
「 W-Why me? 」
「 There’s no profound reason for it. I just want to see Mana and Misuzu duet! Let’s see. The song will be『 Yume wa Majolica Senorita 』1 Good luck with your practice! 」
Yume wa Majolica Senorita?
「 I don’t know that song at all! 」
「 If you don’t know then search the net, the presentation will be tomorrow! Okay?! 」
Seriously, she’s just dragging Misuzu around.
「 Sorry, Misuzu-oneechan 」
「 It can’t be helped, let’s practice when we have time 」
Misuzu smiles at Mana.
「 It would be sad if it’s just the two of you, well then, let’s have Megumi and Michi duet too. And yes, it’ll be Yume wa Majolica Senorita also 」
「 Us too? 」
Megu and Michi look at each other.
「 Yes, of course, it’ll be a Yume wa Majolica Senorita contest! Of course, Ruriko and I will be joining too! You’re okay with that now?! 」
Nei said, but
「 My, if it’s Yume wa Majolica Senorita, then I’ll join in. I’ll team up with Ruriko-san so Nei can team with Edie-chan 」
Who would’ve thought Katsuko-nee would candidate her name
「 Huh, Edie?! 」
「 But, it’s a Japanese song! 」
「 My, there’s an English version of it too 」
W-What’s Yume wa Majolica Senorita?
「 Hmm. I guess. The that means, Katsu-nee too? 」
「 Of course, I’ll go with that version as well! I will also cosplay. There should be one in the costume room in the mansion! 」
「 Ajapa! 」
Nei gave up.
「 I think that Saturn’s clothes will suit Ruriko-san! 」
「 Ah, yes. Understood 」
Ruriko may be afraid that she just agreed because she has no choice.
「 Mao is with Rei-chan? 」
Mao-chan asks worriedly.
「 Let’s see. Mao and Reika-oneesan will be the judge 」
「 Eh, that’s boring! 」
「 That’s right. We might as well sing all together. Margo-oneesama, what do you think? 」
Misuzutalks to Margo-san
「 No, look, I don’t know Japanese songs that well 」
Margo-san smiles wryly
「 Ah, but, if it’s Puri puri Mappurima2 」
「 What’s that? 」
Ruriko asks, speechless.
「 No, I don’t know what kind of song it was, but Nei taught me about it. 」 When I asked, can you sing a Japanese song? She answered, “If it’s Yuuki Puri puri mappurima, then I’ll sing!” so we managed to pass it through. Am I wrong? 」
Nei who’s on my side laughs out.
「 I heard that it was a very famous song in Japan, but 」
「 I don’t know it 」
「 I can’t tell 」
「 I don’t know it either 」
「 I haven’t heard of it 」
「 I have limited information 」
Misuzu, Megu, Ruriko, Mana, and Michi shake their head.
「 I know it 」
「 I know it 」
Everyone turns to Reika.
「 I’ve heard it from my classmate at middle school 」
Then that means it’s real?
That Yuuki Puri puri mappurima?!!
「 Well then, Margo-san will sing it with Rei-chan. Mao-chan, Nagisa, and I will sing something too 」
「 Yo-chan! Naisu!! 」
Nei’s in good humor.
「 Yeah, sure. Well then, Reika-oneesan’s going to duet with me 」
「 Okay 」
Reika answers while looking down.
She must be imagining a lot of things on what’s about to happen today.
「 Mao-chan, what do you want to sing? We’ll sing together whatever song you like 」
I ask Mao-chan.
「 Let’s see 」
Well, since we’re talking about a toddler so it’s probably a nursery rhyme she learned from kinder or songs from anime on Sunday morning.
「 Perfect Scream Version(パーフェクト絶叫ヴァージョン)3 」
「 Oh, that 」
Nagisa, do you know it?
W-What kind of song is that ‘version’?
「 Yeah. I think we can sing that song perfectly! 」
「 Mao loves that song you see 」
「 Mama loves it too! 」
「 Then, let’s sing it after a long while? 」
「 Mama, Papa, and Mao will sing together! 」
Well, if Mao-chan’s satisfied with it, then it’s fine
「 Huh, what about Sensei? 」
Mao-chan asks curiously
「 Who will sing with Sensei?! 」
「 It’s fine! Sensei will sing something with Kyouko-san! 」
Nei tells Mao-chan with a smile.
Either of them is traditional.
「 Can Kyouko-san sing traditional songs? 」
「 Ah, there’s Japanese diaspora community in Brazil, so I don’t think that she doesn’t know at all 」
「 She sang a Japanese song in front of me before 」
「 Above all, I think it has a lyrics saying “9 is divisible by 3 and yet 10 divided by three has one remainder, I don’t get it” or something 」
「 Is it an educational song? 」
「 I don’t know. She mentioned that it was a song from a Japanese program broadcasted in Brazil 」
「 Well, who cares. Since she’s easy-going so if we tell her to sing something, she’ll do it 」
「 Speaking of which, what about Miss Cordelia and the two? 」
「 Those people are perhaps, entertainers! 」
「 Yeah, well, we’ll be requesting them so they’ll probably do something 」
There’s no need to worry, I guess?
◇ ◇ ◇
Ruriko’s wearing the micro bikini she had yesterday and Nagisa’s shop boiler suit.
Mana’s wearing a mini-skirt yukata Katsuko-nee brought.
「 If you’re wearing a yukata, it must be matching with the size of the body 」
Agnes is wearing a blue one piece.
It’s more or less the clothes prepared for Agnes in the basement.
Shiraska Sousuke also wants Agnes to wear a cute dress, I guess.
She’s wearing a boiler suit just like Ruriko.
Since it’s easy to move with it, she seems to have taken a liking to it.
「 Could it be the same as Ruriko? 」
「 Yes, she doesn’t have any change of clothes, so it’s just an underwear and boiler suit 」
Hmmm, I can trace the underwear line
Well, there’s no helping it.
「 Okay, let’s all eat breakfast 」
Katsuko-nee takes the lead and head to the dining room.
Agnes is looking around frightened.
It’s her first time out of the basement, so everything is new to her.
She’s looking out the window afraid.
Well, Mana, Ruriko, and Mao-chan are protecting her, so I guess it’s okay.
We reach the cafeteria.
「 Anyway, take your seats, Nei and Megu-chan, could you help me out? 」
「 Katsuko-oneesama, I would like to help too 」
Misuzu and Ruriko stand up.
「 Ah, it’s okay, it’ll frighten Agnes. It’s okay just to have all the people who are accustomed to the dining room do it this morning. 」
Katsuko-nee wants to show Agnes how breakfast is served.
Displaying that they take out milk and butter from the refrigerator,
「 It’s okay. We’re about to eat! 」
Mana holds Agnes’ hand.
I look at the girls sitting on the table.
「 What’s wrong, Onii-sama? 」
Ruriko calls to me, but;
「 No, it’s nothing, I’m just looking at everyone 」
Later, Reika’s going to kidnap Yukino and me.
Then, who will be the other people we’ll add.
Let’s check it first
The mastermind of this plan;
Margo-san and Katsuko-nee, of course, can’t go with me.
「 Err, we’re going to toast the bread, right? Is there anyone who wants a second serving? 」
Nei asks everyone.
It’s rare that Nei doesn’t know this plan.
Margo-san didn’t tell Nei means that she has some plan.
「 Okay, the tea’s ready, Michi, please give me cups 」
「 Certainly 」
Misuzu and Michi will go back to see Jii-chan, so it’s impossible.
「 Yoshi-kun, which do you prefer, sunny-side-up or scrambled? 」
「 Sunny-side-up then 」
「 Okay 」
Megu has her club activities.
「 Mama, I want milk 」
「 Yes, okay, Nei-chan, could you get some? 」
「 Sure thing! 」
Nagisa and Mao-chan are going to the shop, so it’s impossible.
They’re all eliminated as it’s impossible.
「 Here, salad 」
「 Nei-oneechan, where’s the dressing? 」
「 Err, why don’t we put them all at once? Or does anyone have an individual preference? 」
「 Let’s pour them all together? Who’s not okay with Japanese dressings? 」
「 Edie asks what is Japanese dressing instead? 」
「 Tell her that it tastes soy-sauce! 」
Instead, on the contrary;
Who do I want to bring?
「 P-Papa 」
Agnes hands a plate of toast to me.
「 They told me to bring to Papa, desuno 」
Nei winks at me on the other side.
「 Oh, thank you, Agnes, 」
「 Yes, desuno 」
Agnes looks down shyly.
As expected, if we’re going to leave the mansion, then;
I want to show Agnes the outside world.
But, if it’s just me, Agnes would feel uneasy.
「 Onii-chan, eggs 」
「 Thanks, Mana 」
But, I can’t take Mana since Yukino’s coming along.
In that case.
「 Onii-sama, what would you like on top of the sunny-side-up eggs? 」
Ruriko would be necessary.
