「 Either way, her power isn’t a big deal 」
「 After all, I’m also unaffected 」
「 Yesterday, during our conversation in Kyoto, you didn’t know because I’ve been hiding behind Kouzuki-sama, however, 」
Saying that; she looks down on Yomiko-san and her sisters.
Minaho-neesan pretended to be dominated by Yomiko’s “Miko power” on purpose.
「 Kouzuki-sama mentioned yesterday that your late mother taught him a skill to prevent domination from the “Miko power,” that was a bluff 」
Bluff? In short, a lie? He’s deceiving them.
「 Grandfather deceived us? 」
「 No. Kouzuki-sama deceived Yomiko-san and her sisters. 」
「 Yomiko-san, you made everyone do what you want until now just with that level of power, haven’t you? Your friends in school, children of the same age, and even the yakuza who has faith in Takakura shrine, your ability is enough to go through them 」
Minaho-neesan said. The Takakura sisters are afraid.
「 Children are mentally immature, so it’s easy to control them, once you control one with your power, your “Miko power” would spread to the people around that one. The rumors of “Takakura Yomiko has such power” would spread, and they will all believe that. When that happens, it would be easy for you to control others 」
If they believe about the “Miko power” from the start, then,
they can be controlled easily.
「 The Yakuza are the same. They know about the real one, in short, your mother, and her power as well. Therefore, they believe that Yomiko-san, her daughter should have the same power. That is why they are easily controlled 」
Oh, because they know the horror of the true shrine maiden,
They would believe Yomiko-san’s power that easily.
「 The environment is convenient for you, that is why people do what you want up until now 」
「 During our discussion in Kyoto yesterday, you were surprised that your power didn’t work on Kouzuki-sama, but you agreed with his explanation. Well, you probably thought that the head of Kouzuki house for many years have fought all kinds of charm from the political and business world, so your immature “Miko power” can’t go through him, haven’t you? Even the way he talked about your late mother teaching him a skill was also credible 」
Yeah, you won’t get surprised if Jii-chan says that he has some unbelievable experiences.
If he tells me that he met a sage or a kappa, I’d believe him.
「 Furthermore, Kouzuki-sama brought Misuzu-san and Yoshiko-san with him. Michi-san as their bodyguard as well. Your power didn’t go through Kouzuki-sama, and yet you confirmed that it goes through Misuzu-san and the two, you felt relieved. Michi-san is well behaved, she didn’t say anything, Yomiko-san, you thought that she’s just Misuzu-san’s attendant, so you ignored Michi-san. Similarly, you felt that I’m Kouzuki-sama’s subordinate, so you ignored me as well 」
Right, Michi can manipulate her Qi, so she didn’t yield to Yomiko-san’s control.
However, since she’s a bodyguard, she didn’t say anything unnecessary. Michi’s got that personality.
Minaho-neesan also did the same on Jii-chan’s side.
She erases her presence not to let the other party what she has.
Seeing Michi and Minaho-neesan quiet, Yomiko-san thought that they were under her control. No, she misunderstood.
Yomiko-san was only emitting her “Miko power.”
Yet, she’s immature on sensing the other party’s Qi to see whether it connects appropriately or not.
That’s why she made this misunderstanding.
She got caught in Jii-chan and Minaho-neesan’s trap.
「 That is why even though you cannot control Kouzuki-sama, you can control everyone else to follow your will, so you accepted the proposal to go to Tokyo. Either way, Kouzuki-sama is busy, that is why we were to take care of your daily life. Besides, if there’s any trouble, you can just ask Misuzu-san and others for anything. You were thinking that you can do anything you want in that kind of environment, do you? 」
The sisters are hugging each other.
Yomiko-san’s grinding her teeth from hearing what Minaho-neesan said.
Tsukiko-san and Luna-san are looking down, trembling.
「 You deceived us?! 」
Yomiko-san finally speaks.
「 Oh? Don’t get me wrong, Kouzuki-sama surely will protect you three 」
Minaho-neesan said smiling.
「 Either way, you’re on your road to failure with your immature power. Even if you didn’t go to Kouzuki-sama and ask for protection from others. Well, if you went to a Yakuza group, you would’ve been in a worse spot 」
「 What do you mean? 」
「 If Yomiko-san tried to negotiate with the “genuinely frightening people” from the “dark” world, then your level of power will not be able to control them. If you face someone with such foolish will, your fortunes and life will all be swept away in an instant. Those people sharpen their mind when entering negotiations. You haven’t negotiated with your life on the line, have you? 」
People who enter bloodshed will be unaffected by Yomiko-san’s power.
「 Kouzuki-sama is a tolerant man, he forgave your foolish actions and arrogant attitude. If this were the Yakuza, you would’ve been dead long ago 」
「 T-That’s not true! 」
「 I-I have value! I have inherited the blood of Takakura shrine maiden! 」
「 But, there’s three of you, am I wrong? 」
Minaho-neesan smiles coldly.
「 There’s no trouble even if one of you dies. That’s how Yakuza thinks. They would beat up one of you in front of the remaining until that one dies. When that happens, the remaining two will be obedient, don’t you think? 」
The sisters are now completely afraid.
Actually, even the Yakuza would stop before they kill one.
The sisters don’t know anything about sex.
Not its beauty, nor its horror.
Therefore, Minaho-neesan talks about killing as it’s easier to believe in.
They’re girls who lived at a point of view where they have a relationship with the Yakuza.
They can imagine how scary it is when the Yakuza gets angry.
「 Let’s see, imagining that case, perhaps, the youngest, Luna-san would die first. Tsukiko-san has worth to use 」
Tsukiko-san’s blood is related to a boss in a Yakuza.
「 I-I don’t want that. I’m scared 」
「 It’s okay, Luna-sama 」
Tsukiko hugs the trembling Luna-san.
「 Kouzuki-sama’s too kind. She even allowed Luna-san to become his sex slave instead 」
「 I think it’s about time you start noticing. You three, especially Yomiko-san, have been discourteous to Kouzuki-sama ever since yesterday 」
She speaks in a low tone.
「 I-I! That 」
「 You were trying to feign friendliness to Kouzuki-sama, but actually, you weren’t even trying, furthermore you tried to dominate Misuzu-san and Yoshiko-san, that is a clear hostile act against the Kouzuki house 」
The room quiets down.
「 Look back and think about it. Did your late mother use her “Miko power” without a care about anything? Shouldn’t that power be sealed unless one’s serving as the shrine maiden of Takakura shrine? 」
The three sinks in silence.
「 If I were your mother, then I would tell you three to not use that power unnecessarily. “”Miko’s power” isn’t for you to do whatever you want” 」
「 It is as you say 」
The oldest, Tsukiko-san answers instead of Yomiko-san.
「 Mother gave us that order. Although, only Yomiko-sama can manifest the “Miko power currently” 」
Their late mother forbade them to use the “Miko power” that freely.
「 But we have no choice! If we want to survive now that Takakura shrine’s taken away from us, we need to use the most out of our “Miko power,” we made our resolve!! 」
「 Don’t talk about resolve that easily 」
「 Yomiko-san, you don’t have the resolve. After all, you’re underestimating Jii-chan, us, this world 」
Yomiko-san looked at me, then at Minaho-neesan.
「 Why is it that my “Miko power” can’t go through him? 」
She’s wondering why I can’t get under her control.
「 Oh, you don’t know? 」
「 Yes, he’s on the same age as me, so he should be different from Kouzuki-sama or Kuromori-sama 」
「 It doesn’t reach Michi-san either 」
Yomiko-san looks at Michi.
「 I heard from mother that the “Miko power” don’t go through those who train in martial arts. I was careless. She was too cute that I let down my guard 」
Michi’s a young, small, and cute girl, that’s why she unconsciously turned a blind eye.
That line shows that she really underestimates us.
「 However, with all due respect, Kuromori Kou-sama doesn’t seem to be trained in any way. I can’t think that Kuromori-sama also came from an environment where one has to prepare to gain strong spiritual power like Kouzuki-sama. He should be an ordinary person and yet, why is it that the power doesn’t reach him. 」
「 Your power doesn’t go through him, so you think that he’s not an ordinary person, is it? 」
She’s speaking looking astounded.
「 Very well, I’ll teach you why. You see, he’s broken 」
「 Broken? 」
「 He only recognizes people with what he sees with his own eyes 」
Minaho-neesan looked at me and smiled.
「 Do you know why Kouzuki-sama allows this boy to call him “Jii-chan”? 」
「 I don’t know. I have no way of knowing! 」
Seriously, she talks too much.
「 To him, the head of Kouzuki house is just an “old man” right in front of his eyes. He doesn’t care about Kouzuki house’s authority nor economic force, it’s a postscript for him. He only looks at the other party’s naked flesh and mind 」
「 Yes, Danna-sama loves only my naked body and mind. That’s what makes us happy 」
「 Me too. Onii-sama asks only sex from me. And when we have sex, Onii-sama embraces my mind and body gently 」
「 When Danna-sama embraces me, I’m no longer the daughter of Kouzuki house. I’m just Misuzu. Danna-sama’s beloved Misuzu 」
「 I can be naked only in front of Onii-sama as well. I feel happy when my body and mind alone pleases Onii-sama 」
Misuzu and Ruriko said.
「 He only sees through your body and mind as well 」
That’s right. I,
I’m only looking at these girls, checking whether they’re worth having sex with or not.
I don’t care about the Takakura shrine nor the Yakuza.
If things don’t go well, I’m confident that I’ll protect my family.
「 So, what do you think about these girls so far? 」
Minaho-neesan asks me my current feelings, following what Jii-chan asked earlier.
「 I can see that Tsukiko-san and Luna-san have a good relationship. We might be able to make them allies. Jii-chan already gave his permission, so I’ll make Luna my sex slave. She’s a kind girl deep down so I think it would be nice to have her with Agnes 」
Yeah, lucky to have this 12-year-old “Boku girl” beauty for me.
「 What about Yomiko-san? 」
「 I don’t think I can do anything for her now. Although, I think that she might be suited for prostitution unexpectedly 」
I look at Yomiko-san.
「 She’s similar to Iwakura-san in terms on how surprisingly self-centered she is 」
「 Yukiyo alone is enough for the troubles she makes 」
「 They’re Takakura house ladies so I’d like them to earn a bit more than her 」
「 Yeah, Iwakura-san’s hobby is mostly for the maniacs 」
「 That’s right, if we’re filled with only maniacs then we won’t earn money 」
There are customers with common hobbies than abnormal customers.
Perverted prostitutes who are willing to play with the perverted customers are usually avoided by ordinary customers.
Well, that’s obvious. If you see a girl who’s doing abnormal plays like *********** or ************ with another customer, they’ll back off. They won’t even touch them.
If possible, we want another one of the bright, and gentle beauties like Katsuko-nee and Nagisa, women who have a high tolerance.
「 What about Tsukiko-san? 」
「 I still don’t know, her face and body look beautiful though 」
A tall Japanese beauty.
「 Indeed, we won’t know unless we look at their body 」
Minaho-neesan looks at the Takakura sisters.
「 Let’s see you three naked, take off your clothes 」
The sisters are startled.
「 W-Why do we have to? 」
Yomiko-san tries to oppose, however.
「 Becoming a prostitute means you have to be naked. If there are some scars anywhere in your body, then your price goes down. You’re a product after all 」
Minaho-neesan speaks coldly.
「 Hurry up and take off all your clothes 」
「 W-We can’t do something that embarrassing! 」
Yomiko-san glares at Minaho-neesan.
Tsukiko-san and Luna-san are hugging each other in fear.
「 Didn’t I tell you that it won’t work? 」
Oh, she’s not just glaring.
She’s sending over her “Miko power.”
「 Yomiko-san, you should stop making that face. It ruins your cute face 」
「 I mean, just asking, Yomiko-san, does your mother ever make that face when using her “Miko power”? 」
Tsukiko-san and Luna-san are taken aback.
Yomiko-san’s still glaring at Minaho-neesan.
She really hates to lose.
「 Perhaps, she’s making a calm face when sending out her Qi like Michi 」
I look at Michi.
Michi’s expressionless most of the time, except when we’re having sex.
However, recently, even in her expressionless look, I can notice some hidden fluctuations in her emotions, like a small joy, sadness, anger, and such.
Michi has emotions.
She tries to control it inside of her, and it makes it possible for her to release strong Qi.
That’s the secret of Kuodou style.
Kudou-papa also hides his real emotions inside but, he releases it in ways no one could understand.
His Qi isn’t as refined as Michi’s.
He jumped out of the house while in the middle of training, so it’s inevitable.
「 Michi, what do you think of Yomiko-san’s ability? 」
「 It’s like a radio transmitter that only does large output. Furthermore, it can send but cannot receive 」
I knew it, she can send strong Qi to let others do what she wants, but.
She can’t feel the Qi of others.
「 Is that because she lacks training? 」
「 Why do you think so, Master? 」
Hey, if you return a question with another, we’re going to reach zero.
「 Sex is the shrine maiden’s method to receive the other party’s Qi, right? 」
I made a guess.
「 I think that the wandering shrine maidens feel the other party’s Qi through sex. That must be the reason why they need to have sex 」
Yomiko-san who don’t know sex yet can only send Qi.
「 I think so too 」
「 I myself awakened Shingetsu from having sex with Master 」
Sex is the best way to understand and accept each other’s mind and body.
「 Will Yomiko-san learn the ability to receive Qi when she learns sex? 」
「 I think so, however, 」
「 The way she closed her heart is unusual. I think that it would be difficult even for Master 」
Oh, from what Michi sees, Yomiko-san’s door in her heart is clearly shut.
「 What are you talking since earlier?! 」
Yomiko-san speaks in ill humor.
「 No, we’re talking to ourselves. Either way, Yomiko-san won’t understand even if we explain it 」
「 Don’t take me for a fool! I’m the Takakura house’s Shrine maiden! 」
No, you’re not a shrine maiden yet, are you?
Ah, she’s glaring at me this time.
Geez, that’s not cute, you should stop that.
「 Hey, Michi? 」
「 Yes, Master? 」
「 This is just my intuition but, could it be that Tsukiko-san has stronger Qi than Yomiko-san? 」
I can feel it since earlier.
Tsukiko-san’s pool of Qi seems to be larger.
Unlike Yomiko-san who releases her Qi indiscriminately.
Tsukiko-san is the type who accumulates the Qi inside.
「 I think so too. If it’s the current power, she’s clearly the superior one 」
Yomiko-san looks at Tsukiko-san in surprise.
「 Y-Yomiko-sama, I!! 」
「 I haven’t inherited the righteous blood of Takakura house, I cannot be better than Yomiko-sama! 」
She appeals to her little sisters.
「 No, that doesn’t matter 」
「 In the first place, the Takakura shrine’s bloodline and the wandering shrine maiden’s lineage doesn’t have to be connected, right? The Takakura shrine accepted shrine maidens from the outside during Meiji era after all 」
It’s only been a few years ago when the head priest accepts one of the wandering shrine maidens as the wife.
「 No, Takakura shrine is a traditional shrine. That precious bloodline is 」
Tsukiko-san who hasn’t inherited the blood of the shrine speaks to us with a sharp tone.
「 Yomiko-sama’s the only one who has both the precious bloodline and the secrets of wandering shrine maiden!!! 」
「 Is that so? I feel like Tsukiko-san’s the one who inherited the power of wandering shrine maidens 」
Oh, I’m starting to understand it.
「 Why is it that wandering shrine maidens need to have sex during their arbitration. Also, I somehow understand why they give birth to a child as proof for mediation 」
「 When having sex, one has to be naked, mind and body, leaving no secrets unturned. Both sides in arbitration will have sex with the shrine maiden. Then, they feel it, understand it. Therefore, they can find a compromise in the mediation 」
A real shrine maiden should also have an excellent ability to receive Qi.
When they have sex, they can see through the mind of the other party.
「 However, to execute their arbitration, they need to use their “Miko power” At the end of the day, they have to bend their will and accept the arbitration by force through the “Miko power.” 」
Men show face even if their mind is seen through.
If it’s disadvantageous for them, they’d say “That’s a lie, I won’t accept this.”
Therefore, the “Miko power” forces them to accept the arbitration forcibly.
The Yakuza can save their face if they’re forced to accept using supernatural power.
Saying that they can’t do anything because it’s the Takakura shrine maiden.
「 However, “Miko power” shouldn’t be used to force oneself into the mind of people. The successive shrine maidens felt guilty in doing so. Therefore, they give birth to the child of arbitration. By doing so, they create a clear line of distinction when manipulating other people’s minds 」
They give proof that they entrust their lives to the arbitration.
「 Therefore, Yomiko-san who tries to use the “Miko power” blindly is wrong 」
「 What do you know?! 」
「 You’re not someone from Takakura house, you’re not even a shrine maiden! 」
She gives me a scary glare.
「 You don’t know anything, and yet you speak out of your convenience!! 」
「 Michi, can you cut out Yomiko-san’s Qi? 」
「 It’s possible 」
「 Then, do it 」
「 Please look this way 」
Yomiko-san’s pointing out her Qi sharply.
「 W-What?! 」
Yomiko-san turned to Michi unconsciously.
She glares at Michi.
At that moment.
「 Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! 」
Her single point concentrated Shingetsu attacks Yomiko-san.
「 Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! 」
Yomiko-san screams while still looking at Michi’s eyes.
「 Yomiko-sama?!!! 」
「 Onee-sama!?!!! 」
Tsukiko-san and Luna-san catch Yomiko-san who’s about to collapse.
「 Uuuugh! W-What?!!?? My head hurts 」
Yomiko-san crouches, looking confused.
「 I broke your function to send Qi by sending in a stronger one 」
「 You can no longer use your “Miko power” 」
「 Y-You’re lying?! 」
Yomiko-san glares at Michi while groaning.
「 Right now, you and I are connected through Qi 」
Michi speaks calmly.
「 Therefore 」
Yomiko-san’s hand reaches for her skirt.
「 W-W-W-What? 」
「 I can do this 」
Yomiko-san lifts up her skirt.
「 What’s going on?! I don’t want to do this!! 」
And finally, Yomiko-san’s white cloth in her crotch is visible.
「 What’s this?! No! I don’t want this!! 」
「 You can bind people with your words using your “Miko power,” but my Shingetsu can dominate the flesh itself 」
「 Yomiko-san’s prided “Miko power” is nothing extraordinary 」
I tell Michi.
「 Let’s have Yomiko-san start stripping 」
I have to destroy her pride.
「 Yes, Master 」
「 Hey! Wait! What are you making me do!!! 」
Yomiko-san screams as her body’s freedom are taken away.
「 Stop, please stop. I, I’ll do anything!! 」
Tsukiko-san pleads to me.
「 S-Scary. I’m scared 」
Luna-san’s just afraid.
「 No, Yomiko-san needs to be punished 」
Anyway, Yomiko-san underestimated us.
「 Michi, continue 」
「 Yes 」
「 No, No, Noooooo!!!! 」
Yomiko-san’s trembling fingers open up the zipper on her sailor uniform.
That’s right, take it off.
「 Megu-chan’s here!!! 」
The door opens up suddenly.
Nei who was taking a break outside comes in.
Behind her is Mana, Edie, and Megu.
「 Yoshi-kun, what are you doing?! 」
Megu shouts as she looks at the situation in the room.
