Rei-chan takes the seven-passenger minivan from the garage to the entrance.
Rei-chan’s driving, and since the passengers would be Kana-senpai, Nei, Misuzu, Ruriko, Michi, Mana, and me, this is the only vehicle we can ride in.
Nei’s on the front passenger seat, Michi’s on the second row near the door seat just so she can get out as soon as something happens.
I’m in the middle of the second row, and Mana’s next to me.
The back row has Kana-senpai, Misuzu, and Ruriko.
「 Then, let’s depart 」
Rei-chan starts the engine.
Then the Minivan goes through the mansion’s gate.
「 Fourth squad, this is Fujimiya. We’re going route B-7. We’re only driving a short distance, and it’s a heavily guarded area, so there’s no convoy necessary 」
Rei-chan contacts the surveillance team of Kouzuki SS outside via radio.
『 This is the fourth squad, Sakamoto, heard you loud and clear 』
Rei-chan presses the remote control to open the gate.
The giant iron-gate opens up.
Outside the gate are the usual police and Kouzuki SS’ cars monitoring the mansion.
Kudou-papa nor the rampaging Yakuza groups are no longer present.
Then, the vehicle moves outside the mansion.
We drive through the road going to school.
Even the police cars following us usually aren’t coming.
Could it be that they’re listening to the transmission Rei-chan gave to Kouzuki SS?
「 I’ll be on guard for the outside 」
Michi tells Rei-chan.
Oh right, the other Yakuza might show up again.
We need to be on guard.
「 Thanks. Still, I don’t think there’s anything to worry about 」
Rei-chan replies with a smile.
「 The guards in this area are on high-alert 」
Yeah, Jii-chan’s in our school right now.
Therefore, the police nor Kouzuki SS who are regularly monitoring the mansion’s front don’t follow after us.
Kouzuki SS’ guards should have an increased amount around here.
「 Well, I don’t think that there’s a chance they’d try to attack us directly 」
Rei-chan smiles, looking at the rear mirror.
Ootoku-san and Choumoto-san, those monster class bodyguards should be with him.
Maybe chief Yazawa too.
「 Well, if they come at us then they’d be real idiots 」
「 But, that kind of idiot might exist though 」
「 Yes, I think that the surrounding security level has gone up, but the possibility of enemies gathering together also increases 」
I see. After all, whenever Jii-chan moves, the guards from Kouzuki SS come with him, and they stand out.
Yamaoka-san and Michi’s mother has failed, so the Yakuza hanging out around the mansion and our school have disappeared, but.
Jii-chan enters the school that gathers the enemy attention once again.
The Yakuza might come back because they think that Takakura-san might be with him.
「 What are you talking about since earlier? 」
Kana-senpai asks me.
「 Yeah, you see, Mii-chan and Ruri-chan are high-class ladies, so we are always moving with the risk of them being kidnapped in mind 」
Nei turns to Kana-senpai and explains.
「 Therefore, whenever they go outside, there’s always a professional bodyguard like Rei-chan with them, the outside bodyguards are also in contact 」
「 I see 」
Kana-senpai shows interest.
Kana-senpai knows that Kouzuki SS is a security firm.
「 Rei-chan maybe a TV celebrity but she also belongs to the elites of Kouzuki SS 」
「 Although I’m on the lowest seat of the top elites 」
Rei-chan speaks humbly.
She didn’t have that confidence back then.
Rei-chan has changed since this past four months.
「 Well, that’s for the outside, as for when they’re in school or when they’re in a party where bodyguards can’t enter, there’s always Mitchan who’s there to protect Mii-chan and Ruri-chan 」
Nei points at Michi.
「 Mitchan’s the successor of Kudou arts after all 」
「 Ah! I saw that one! It’s the combat show in front of the cafeteria this afternoon! 」
Kana-senpai, that was old man Dai Grepher.
Hmmm. We can’t explain how fearsome it is to an ordinary person.
「 As long as I have no other orders, I will always be wherever Misuzu-oneesama is 」
「 That’s nice, then that means Michi-san is also attending the school for high-class ladies? 」
「 That’s right. 」
「 Are you with them during school trips too? 」
「 Of course 」
「 I mean, Mitchan is always with Mii-chan even on family trips and everything! 」
「 Danna-sama joined us last summer year vacation 」
「 I see, where did you go 」
Kana-senpai asks me.
「 Hmm, to the southern islands 」
「 I mean, where specifically?
「 Well, I didn’t even know. They only speak French, I don’t understand them 」
Even now, I still don’t know where they took me.
「 Anyway, the sea was beautiful. Each cottage has their private beach spreading as far as you can see and no other guests are taking a dip in the ocean 」
「 That means you rented the place out? 」
「 Yeah, I think 」
I haven’t met anyone except when going to dinner.
They start cleaning and making beds when we’re having a meal.
「 It’s not rented out, that partition is owned by Kouzuki house 」
「 It’s that type of resort. It’s managed by a specialized company, but each partition is privately owned 」
「 Huh? You mean it’s not a lodging facility? 」
「 If it is, then strange people will stay in there. Only those verified by a preliminary survey on assets and career are approved to buy land there. Also, the usage is only limited to the purchaser’s family 」
Oh, that means they can’t just buy it and lend it to someone else.
「 The real wealthy people in this world want a place where they can keep their privacy and can relax with only their family 」
Right, anything goes.
We even had sex in the sea, and they had a peeing contest on the sandy beach.
「 But for real, that was a beautiful place. The ocean’s color was emerald green, the sandy beach has not single trash in it, and the weather was looking clear every day 」
That’s an ideal southern island.
「 That sounds nice, I want to go to that island too 」
「 If you’d like, we can invite you there anytime you want 」
Misuzu said with a smile.
「 All you need to prepare is a passport, and Kouzuki house will charter a plane for you 」
「 Eh? Are you sure? 」
Kana-senpai takes it.
「 Yes, Kana-san is also a member of Danna-sama’s harem 」
「 But in exchange, Kana-chan~ You’ll be having sex with Yo-chan every day! 」
「 Sure, if I can go to the southern islands’ resorts, I don’t mind having sex as much as Nobu wants! 」
She’ll never betray us as long as she receives benefits.
「 Nei-san, let’s go there together! 」
Kana-senpai tells Nei.
「 Ueh? Me? 」
「 Ah, I want to walk in the beach with Ya-chan wearing a swimsuit 」
It’s amazing how I don’t have to mind the public gaze on that island at all.
「 Eeh? If Yo-chan wants it then, well, I’ll fit it in my schedule 」
Nei’s gonna join Margo-san’s expedition in the US soon.
I mean, I heard that she’ll be making round trips from Japan to the US for a while.
「 Well, returning to the topic, Mitchan is Mii-chan’s bodyguard, so they’re together for nearly 24 hours! 」
Nei returns to the topic.
「 Huh, but if I recall, Michi-san is in the same grade as Ruriko-sama? 」
Kana-senpai speaks her thoughts.
「 Yes, we’re in the same class 」
「 Then, shouldn’t it better for her to become Ruriko-sama’s bodyguard than Misuzu-sama’s? 」
「 Back then, my elder sister is Ruriruri’s bodyguard 」
「 Back then? 」
「 She was injured and hospitalized last May. Her rehabilitation has ended recently and has now recovered 」
「 Huh? Injured? Something like Ruriko-sama being kidnapped? 」
「 No, I 」
Michi speaks bashfully.
「 It’s a family situation 」
「 She fought Michi and lost completely 」
「 Why? Shouldn’t Michi-san’s elder sister be as strong as her? 」
「 No, my elder sister practices Karate 」
「 Karate? Huh? I feel like I’ve seen her on TV. Is she the female high-school student champion in Karate? 」
「 Yes, Kudou Haruka is my sister 」
Michi’s sister has won karate tournaments numerous times.
She’s been featured on TV.
「 Huh? I thought she’s in third-year high-school? 」
「 Yes. The high-school sister lost to Michi, who’s in middle school 」
I recall the fight in the basement of the theater.
「 I’m sorry 」
「 Nono, that’s amazing, Michi-san’s really strong! 」
Kana-senpai’s showing interest.
「 No, I’m not strong, this is all thanks to Kudou style ancient martial arts 」
Michi’s being humble.
「 I mean, since you’re calling it Kudou arts, it means that it’s a family style of martial arts from Michi-san’s house? 」
「 That’s right 」
「 So why is your sister not doing that martial arts and went to Karate instead? 」
「 My sister was rebellious to father. She doesn’t want to learn Kudou arts because Father knows it 」
「 Oh, sorry, I feel like I asked something I shouldn’t 」
「 No, I don’t mind 」
「 My sister started hating our father when she was in the middle of elementary school. I heard about it from my sister. When they went to a Chinese restaurant together, she can’t forgive father 」
「 She couldn’t bear father screaming out “Super electromagnetic spring roll” every time he eats a Chinese spring roll 」
「 I still don’t know what he means by “super electromagnetic spring roll” by now, but still 」
「 Mitchan, I’ll lend you the “neo super robot wars” next time 」
「 An old man from the East comes as an alien but don’t be surprised about it 」
「 Nei-chan, you shouldn’t do that 」
Rei-chan says from the driver’s seat.
「 The Combattler doesn’t show up in the “Neo Super Robot Wars” 」
「 Oh right, that was Voltes’ first appearance. You’ll see a retired voice actor there! 」
「 I’ll lend you the “Super robot wars Compact 2” from Wonderswan 」
「 Wonderswan? That’s harsh Rei-chan 」
Rei-chan has a gaming pastime.
「 T-Then, what is Michi-san’s father doing? 」
Kana-senpai asks while the two are talking about games.
「 Oh, he’s not working for KOuzuki SS, but he’s a president of a company affiliated with us 」
If we name “Kudou detective office,” it would be misunderstood.
I was told that it’s popular.
「 Father is over there 」
Michi points with her fingers.
Oh wait, an old man is taking down some Yakuza on the intersection.
「 Oh, Kudou-san handles the enemies Kouzuki SS lures out 」
Rei-chan says calmly.
The signal is red, so our car’s stopped just next to Kudou-papa’s fight.
「 Father, do your best 」
Michi opens the window half-down and tells her father.
「 Yeah, you too! 」
Kudou-papa’s still wearing his pokemon trainer cosplay.
He folds down the roadside “stop” sign and swings it like a spear.
「 Kudou Javelin! Stretch! 」
The signal light turns Green.
「 Then, we’ll be going ahead 」
Our vehicle accelerates.
Kudou-papa’s figure grows smaller.
「 Aurora Prisma Guiramand cut! 」
I hear Kudou-papa shouting from behind.
「 He’s quite a unique father 」
「 But, I can understand now how Michi-san’s sister feels 」
Now that you mention it, Michi and her sister had a promise.
They talked about meeting each other tomorrow and after that,
For now, we’re busy with Takakura-san’s case.
Come to think of it, Michi did contact her sister telling her mother’s condition.
「 Is there anything wrong? 」
Michi looks at my face.
「 No, nothing 」
I shouldn’t talk about it with everyone present.
Oh, I see the school.
「 Rei-chan, are you going in from the back gate? 」
「 No, we’re going through the main gate today 」
Yeah, there are too many observers today.
Not everyone in Kouzuki SS is our allies.
We can’t show them the secret route leading to the concealed garage for the faculty from the back gate.
I see. As we approach the school, Kouzuki SS’ vehicles are increasing in numbers on the road.
Then, our car arrived at our school.
◇ ◇ ◇
It’s already evening.
It’s Saturday, most of the students left the school already.
Our minivan stopped behind the school building.
There are no students around.
「 Wow, there are so many beautiful looking cars parked here! 」
Coming down from the van,
Kana-senpai raised her voice.
Yeah, there’s a big luxury car parked facing the school building.
「 Yeah, that’s a Rolls-Royce 」
That’s Jii-chan’s car.
He’s really here.
「 Come to think of it, this is my first time entering Onii-sama’s school 」
Yeah, she’s living in the mansion, yet she’s never been here.
Misuzu has come here several times already though.
「 Is that so? Should I show you around then? 」
Kana-senpai says, but.
「 Kana-chan! You still have to go back to the tennis club! 」
「 Oh right! 」
She’s still wearing her tennis clothes because she skipped her practice.
「 Then, I’m going back 」
「 Oh wait, I’m coming with you. I’m going to patch things up if the prez is angry at you 」
「 Yeah, thanks. Prez might be okay with it, but Vice is the stiff one 」
「 We will talk with the chairman then 」
「 Yeah, I don’t get it but, seems like our school’s chairman has a lot of things with her 」
「 That’s how it is, Kana-chan 」
She’s Nei’s guardian, and also Megu and my benefactor.
She’s the owner of that mansion.
That’s al Nei told Kana-senpai, however,
Kana-senpai seems to be aware that our school director is a remarkable person connecting us to Kouzuki house.
「 Ruriko, Michi, and I will head to the chairman’s office 」
Michi fought in front of the cafeteria today and made some fuss.
We don’t want the remaining students in school to see that she’s back.
「 Danna-sama, what should we do? 」
I look at the unenergetic and silent Mana since earlier.
「 I’ll take Mana and send Nei and Kana-senpai over 」
I took Mana to let her have some fresh air.
They shouldn’t mind me walking around the school for a while.
Even if I meet an acquaintance, I can just say that Mana’s my little sister.
「 Onii-chan? 」
「 Let’s talk a walk. Okay? 」
「 Okay 」
I hold Mana’s hand.
「 I’m worried about Megu too, I’m going to take a look at them 」
I don’t know what Edie’s doing now.
「 Then, Rei-chan please escort Danna-sama 」
「 Err, do you girls know where the Chairman’s room is? 」
I asked just in case.
「 It’s in the principal’s office, isn’t it? I know where it is 」
Michi’s stayed in the school last May.
She knows where the principal’s office is.
Well, Minaho-neesan’s watching us through the cameras as soon as we come here, there should be no problem.
Misuzu and Ruriko should be safe as Michi has Shingetsu.
「 Then, we’re going outside for a bit, we’ll meet you there later 」
Minaho-neesan said that Takakura-san’s arriving after 6pm.
「 Please wait 」
Rei-chan takes out her cane.
「 As expected, I need this 」
She smiled at us.
Mana and I are coming with Kana-senpai, Nei, and Rei-chan.
The five of us head to the tennis court first.
