「 Okay, it’s about time we poke him 」
Kyouko-san operates some device.
She takes a mic then a ringtone plays from inside Shriasaka Sousuke’s confinement room.
Looking at it, there’s a phone on the floor on the room.
Shirasaka Sousuke looks confused, but;
He moves slowly and answers the phone.
「 Ah,, hello?! Is this Shirasaka Sousuke-san? 」
Kyouko-san speaks to the mic with a deep voice.
『 T-That’s right 』
Shirasaka Sousuke in the monitor replies in a broken voice.
「 Finally, it connected. I’m Tanimura from Yokosuka. Shirasaka Moritsugu-san has asked me to rescue you 」
『 Moritsugu-Oji did?! 』
Shirasaka Sousuke shouts.
「 Shirasaka Sousuke doesn’t know that Shirasaka Moritsugu lost his position as the head 」
「 With Kouzuki house moving them, Shirasaka house has abandoned Shirasaka Sousuke. Yet, he still hopes that Shirasaka house will rescue him 」
Shirasaka house has a relationship with the underground society after all
Doing that would send him relief.
「 Yes, that’s right-ssu. I’m moving under Shirasaksa Moritsugu-san’s commision-ssu! I finally found where you’re hidden, I have one of my underlings slip in a phone inside there!! 」
Kyouko-san speaks to the mic.
『 H-Hurry up and get me out of here!! 』
Shirasaka Sousuke shouts half-crying.
「 Now, now, please don’t be so loud. I’ve turned off the surveillance device in that room that connect to others, but if you shout so loud, they will come to see the situation, would they not? 」
『 O-Oh 』
Shirasaka Sousuke lowers his voice.
「 Yeah, if you tell him something logical, something that matches the common sense, he’ll get hooked with it. I guess the “drowning man will grab the straw” idiom is right? 」
Margo-san says as she observes Shirasaka’s state.
「 However, he’s a man who won’t get his hands dirty. He won’t know that there’s no way a phone could be smuggled to the underground confinement room under a monitoring system 」
「 He’s a man who thinks that he’s luckier than anyone and it’s natural that he’s given preferential treatment 」
That’s why he’s attracted even though it shouldn’t be possible.
「 Err, let’s see, I think that I’ll be able to help you out on Monday or next week from how I look at it 」
『 Next week?! Don’t give me that bullshit! Come right now! 』
Shirasaka Sousuke shouts at the phone.
「 I would like to, but you see, I also have to gather my people 」
『 What are you talking about, the enemy is just a woman!!!! 』
「 You say it’s a woman, but Kyouko Messer’s a big name!! 」
Kyouko-san herself says that.
「 I have to make some preparations for that, you see? 」
「 I’m using our international routes to look for Kyouko Messer’s weakness, do you know anything? 」
『 Try to contact Ernest Hawk from Los Angeles 』
「 Ernest Hawk-san? 」
『 Just say Ernest Hawk from the Council, and someone will know what you’re talking about. That guy thinks that Kyouko’s existence is smoky so he should lend out a hand 』
「 Okay, I’ll try to contact him right away, but I really think that we’ll be late to rescue you 」
『 What did you say?! 』
「 No you see, Kyouko Messer-san is trying to target your family, we’re putting our people to guard them 」
『 My family you say?! 』
「 Yes, your wife and two daughters. Also, the illegitimate daughter as well 」
Megu stares at the monitor.
「 We’ve sent escorts on each, that’s quite a lot of people 」
『 Megumi doesn’t need it. Take off her guards 』
Shirasaka Sousuke immediately announces.
「 But If I do that, Kyouko Messer might catch her and have her experience something unpleasant though? 」
『 Who cares, remove Megumi’s guards and hurry up and rescue me 』
「 No, no, no, Shirasaka-san, it won’t be a significant number if we take off one guard 」
『 Then, take off my wife’s guards too, I know that she’s cheating on me with the manager! 』
Shirasaka Sosuke abandons his wife.
「 If that’s so, Shirasaka-san, what about your two daughters. Yukino-san and Maika-san, which do you want to have more guards? 」
「 Listen, we also want to gather up guards as compact as possible and increase the troops for your rescue a bit 」
『 Yukino. Please increase Yukino’s guards. Moritsugu-Oji likes her 』
「 At worst, Maika-san might be caught by Kyouko Messer, but you don’t mind it, do you? 」
『 H-Hey! 』
「 This is to rescue you as soon as possible 」
『 O-Okay! Please! Hurry up and get me out of here!! 』
Shirasaka Sousuke cuts off Mana too.
「 Yes, we’ll try to increase our efforts to meet your expectations as much as possible 」
『 Don’t make an effort! Make sure you do! Listen, this is an order! 』
「 Yes, yes, then, it might be hard, but please wait for a while longer 」
Kyouko-san tries to end the call.
『 Wait 』
Shirasaka Sousuke speaks up.
『 Who’s the traitor inside? 』
「 What? 」
『 Someone took a phone inside and allowed me to make a call, then that means there’s a traitor, that person is willing to cooperate with my escape, right? 』
Margo-san smiles wryly
「 He seems to have cleared his head 」
Kyouko-san looks around the room.
「 Takanashi Katsuko-san 」
Katsuko-san looks very disgusted with it.
「 Katsuko? Isn’t she one of Minaho’s lackey? 」
Shirasaka Sousuke replied
「 Takanashi Katsuko-san’s a prostitute, so we’ve contacted her through a customer. Shirasaka Moritsugu-san has promised to pay her 80M yen! 」
Kyouko-san speaks out more lies.
『 You said Katsuko’s customer, is that Yamahana, the chairman on the heavy industry? 』
「 It’s from Shinbashi Foundation 」
『 I-I see, then he should be familiar with Moritsugu-Oji 』
「 Yes, Takanashi-san has thought a lot about her future, so she decided to ally herself with Marumoto-san and Shirasaka Moritsugu-san 」
『 I-I see, well done! 』
Shirasaka Sousuke’s convinced.
『 Yeah, she’s just a prostitute. If she stays with Minaho, then her future’s nowhere to be seen! 』
Interpreting things as convenient as he wants no matter what kind of situation he’s in, he’s genuinely Yukino’s father.
No, he’s this kind of father; that’s why Yukino became that kind of woman.
「 Therefore, if there’s any problem, please talk to Takanashi Katsuko-san. However, please do not let Kyouko Messer know her connection with you1 」
『 I-I get it! Anyway just hurry up and rescue me! I beg you!!! 』
「 Yes, please wait for a while longer! 」
Kyouko-san ends the call.
She pressed another switch right away.
「Hello, Cordelia, can you hear me? 」
She talks to Miss Cordelia in the principal’s office above.
『 I can hear you. What’s up? 』
「 I finally get the connection between Earnest Hawk and Sousuke. They have a pledge 」
『 I knew it 』
「 It’s definitely Ernest who spreads out insults 」
『 I see, then I have to kill him 』
「 Want to do it in the second half of next week? What’s your schedule? 」
『 What are you talking about, this is our top priority you know? I’ll ignore all my other plans 』
「 Okay, then let’s go kill him right away 」
『 Ufufu, it’s been a while since we’ve walked around in Los Angeles 』
The two of them decided to murder a man named Ernest Hawk as if they were planning a date.
「 Should I go take tickets? 」
『 No, Ernest knows private jet’s movement so let’s pick military planes. I’ll make reservations 』
Miss Cordelia has connections with the US military it seems.
「 Yeah, thanks 」
Kyouko-san ends the talk.
「 Haa, I’m in charge? 」
「 Sorry, I can’t think of anyone else 」
Kyouko-san apologizes to Katsuko.
「 Minaho’s the mastermind so she can’t be the traitor, Margo or Nei would give him suspicion on how they contacted an outsider, don’t you think? 」
If it’s Katsuko-nee who had a lot of customers as prostitutes, then they can negotiate through that line.
「 Nagisa might’ve been okay too, but she’s not here now 」
It’s not okay to use a name of an absent person.
「 With that said, please take care of that smelly man! 」
「 Giving him even a slight bit of hope will prevent him from going crazy 」
「 Yes, that man has to be conscious during the revenge 」
「 Yeah. If we torture him when his head is on a different world, it won’t be worth anything 」
Nei also agrees.
「 Now then, we now know Sousuke’s priority on his family members 」
「 Yukino-san is the most important, Mana’s second, Megumi’s third and Agnes is fourth 」
Minaho-neesan looks at Megu.
「 Weren’t I in the bottom? 」
「 Sousuke didn’t say about Agnes himself. To him, Agnes is just a sex toy he keeps, he doesn’t think of her as his daughter 」
That’s why he forgot about her when forced into a dilemma.
「 Since he talked about Megumi, that man thinks that I was actually employed by Shiraska Moritsugu. Only a few people even at Shirasaka house knows about Megumi 」
「 Then, what should we do, Minaho? What would be the order of revenge? Should we do the same order as is? 」
「 Agnes, Megumi, Mana, and Yukino-san 」
That means we’re bringing Shirasaka Sousuke’s most cherished daughter as last?
This is to make him despair.
「 No, it’s impossible to have Agnes first 」
「 It’s Agnes’ first time 」
Letting a virgin take the first go is just;
「 I think so too 」
「 Besides, I think that his frustration on doing something on his cherished daughter is different 」
「 What do you mean? 」
Minaho-neesan asks Megu.
「 For him, I’m just a girl who’s going to be a prostitute who would earn money for him. Even if he’s trying to take my first time by himself, it’s just a process for making me a prostitute in the end 」
Megu speaks lonely
「 But, Agnes-chan is a girl he’s been raising for years for him to enjoy. She’s like a bottle of wine he’s been looking forward to maturing for a long time, so I think he’ll be more disappointed having Agnes-chan taken away from him over me 」
Either way, Megu, and Agnes: Shirasaka Sousuke doesn’t think of the two girls other than dolls to satisfy his libido.
「 That’s why, I’ll go first, and Agnes-chan is second 」
「 That won’t be interesting enough 」
「 First is Megumi, Mana-san will go second. Then, Agnes is third 」
「 Why? 」
「 I think that’s way better if we want to rupture his heart 」
「 We don’t want Shirasaka Sousuke to notice Yukino-san 」
「 If we have Megumi, Agnes, and Mana-san do it in order, Shirasaka Sousuke won’t despair as long as he thinks Yukino-san is safe. That’s why we don’t want him to realize that we already have Yukino-san 」
「 You’re right. If Megumi-san and Agnes goes first, and Mana-chan goes third, Shirasaka Sousuke might imagine that Yukino-san will show up in the end 」
「 That person knows that Minaho’s through. If his daughters come in his expected order, then he’ll think that Yukino-san will be raped too 」
「 Why is that not okay? 」
「 If he prepared himself beforehand, he can bear it. He’ll be able to make walls in his heart 」
Margo-san smiles at Megu.
「 If we take the same order and he watches Mana-chan raped, he’ll think, “oh, Yukino will be raped after her’ Then, I think that it won’t be as shocking for him to see Yukino-san raped. On the other hand, he’ll think “This is inevitable” that he might shut out from the shock 」
「 That’s why, if he treasures Yukino-san the most, it’s better if he doesn’t realize her participation until the end 」
「 That’s why, it would be Me, Mana, Agnes-chan, and Yukino in order? 」
「 Yes. Mana-chan would be second, and Agnes would be third, Sousuke would think that Yukino-san didn’t get caught and feel at ease 」
「 It would be painful for him to watch Mana-chan raped but, he won’t think that there would be anything more shocking than that 」
Thinking that only Yukino is safe,
Then rape Yukino on the very end,
「 That’s good, is there anyone against it? 」
Kyouko-san asks. Everyone shook heads.
「 I also think that’s good. If we do in that order, Mana and I can support Agnes-chan on her time 」
That would be better for Agnes.
「 Then that’s decided. You’re okay with it too, Minaho? 」
Kyouko-san asks for Minaho-neesan’s final confirmation.
「 Yes 」
That seems to be the end of the meeting here.
「 Then, we’ll transfer Sousuke to the mansion in one hour. The group for transfer would be Katsuko, Margo, and me. He stinks but don’t give up! 」
Kyouko-san gives out instructions.
「 Minaho, take these children ahead of time, take care of prepping the venue 」
「 Kyouko-san, I’ll stay 」
Minaho-neesan said, but;
「 No, no, if both Minaho and I remain, Sousuke would be wary. Nei, take the lead and bring Minaho with you 」
「 Roger, Yo-chan, Megumi, ready? 」
Nei smiles at us.
「 Katsuko, pretend to look after Sousuke and pass him a letter in secret. The contents would be “You’ll be moving to the mansion but I’ve already contacted the rescue team so don’t worry” While at it, pick up the phone from earlier. If he has it all the time, then he might realize that we’re fooling him 」
「 Yes 」
「 Margo, escort Katsuko 」
「 Roger that 」
Katsuko-nee and Margo-san head to the confinement room in the back.
「 Err, Megumi-chan. This is the memo about taking away your virginity which was in Sousuke’s laptop, we’ve mentioned this earlier. If you want to read it then here 」
Kyouko-san opens a document file on the screen on the table.
「 However, read it here, we can’t print this 」
「 Okay 」
Megu reads on the monitor.
「 It’s impossible for Megumi to take a shower and change clothes here. Do it once we’re back 」
Nei tells me.
Speaking of which, Megu’s still on her track and field club’s training wear.
「 Sensei, is there anything you would like to take back to the mansion? 」
「 Nothing on particular 」
Minaho-neesan answers, but;
「 Could you carry Sousuke’s personal effects? We can’t leave them here. We’ll have to dispose of all of them eventually 」
Kyouko-san tells Minaho-neesan.
「 Kyouko-san, where? 」
「 It’s packed in that cardboard box. Minaho knows 」
「 Sensei, which one? 」
「 This way 」
Minaho-neesan and Nei go to the corner of the room.
When nobody’s around me anymore, Kyouko-san closes up to me.
「 It really helped to have you here 」
She whispers to my years.
「 I didn’t do anything 」
「 No, it won’t proceed to the worst case scenario thanks to you 」
Kyouko-san smiles at me.
「 It’s Plan B after all 」
What kind of plan is that?
「 Uhm, what will end up with Shirasaka Sousuke? 」
I asked nervously
「 Plan A was to kill him and expose him to public 」
「 Expose? 」
「 You see, in the past, they do public beheading. The plan was to show Sousuke’s dead body in front of a newspaper company he is affiliated. We’ll put in a “This person kidnaps, rapes, and murders women. Z” 」
I know that they plan to kill him.
「 What’s Plan B?! 」
「 That’s for you to look forward to the end 」
Kyouko-san shows me a smile.
「 It’s okay, we’ll make sure he won’t show up in the future 」
「 Yeah, Minaho treasures your future more than her revenge. If a murdered body is exposed to the public, an investigation will never end. Kouzuki house may use pressure, but that would result in bad influence to you in the future 」
「 That’s why we decided to make Sousuke disappear quietly 」
Kyouko-san didn’t say any further.
「 Let’s go, Yo-chan! Megu too! 」
Nei calls us from the stairs leading to the underground passage.
「 Ah, coming! 」
「 Yes, Nei-oneesan 」
Megu looks up from the PC.
「 How was it? 」
「 It’s as you see 」
「 I want Yoshi-kun to do me like how he wanted to take away my virginity. Do it in front of him 」
I see the hint of anger from Megu’s eyes.
「 I see 」
Kyouko-san answered with just that much.
「 Hey, Megu, let’s go! 」
Nei and I carry a huge cardboard box.
It’s quite heavy
「 That man’s suitcase is in there too 」
Oh, Kyouko-san kidnapped her while traveling in Australia, right.
「 Sorry! 」
Megu runs as she holds her bag.
「 Kyouko-san, please do 」
「 Leave it to me! 」
Kyouko-san smiles at Minaho-neesan.
「 Please take care of Edie too 」
I’m worried about her.
「 You have to leave that to Cordelia 」
It’s better for Edie to stay at school while the revenge happens in the mansion.
I know that.
But she’s not in good relationship with Miss Cordelia.
At worst, I’ll have Michi come here.
Minaho-neesan, Nei, Megu, and I go through the underground passage.
「 Thank you. I’m sorry for making you worry 」
Minaho-neesan whispers to my ears gently at the middle of the stairway.
