「 Papa! Welcome home! Desuno!」
「 Desuno! 」
Agnes and Mao-chan greet me when we move to the dining room.
「 Sorry to keep you waiting, you must be hungry 」
「 We waited while not eating any other snacks 」
「 Snacks! 」
Mao-chan seems to be imitating only the last word Agnes says.
「 The two said that they won’t eat without their Papa 」
Nagisa said laughing.
「 How about you, Nagisa? 」
「 Not yet 」
Ah, she’s joining Mao-chan.
「 By the way, Shige-chan’s giving you another hard job to do 」
「 It can’t be helped. In the end, we all have to cooperate for the good of the whole family 」
Katsuko-nee appears from the kitchen.
「 Oh, Luna-san, sit over here. Dear, here. Everyone else, pick your seats 」
Only Luna and I got specified seats, Yoshiko-san, Yukino, and Mana is told to sit wherever they want.
「 And so, Luna-san’s side will be Tsukiko and Yomiko-san. You three have a different menu 」
Katsuko-nee said with a smile.
「 Either way, you’re too nervous that you have no appetite. Therefore, for the Takakura sisters, I prepared soup, sandwich, orange juice. Easy to eat food. Just eat what you can, don’t force yourself. If you’re hungry later, then I’ll prepare dinner 」
Luna speaks in a small voice.
「 T-Thank you 」
「 As for you, it’s stamina meals. But, they’re easy to digest 」
My meal seems to be a Chinese congee. There’s also a spring roll salad.
「 And as for everyone else, it’s an ordinary meal. I made terrine duck today 」
Ruriko and Megu push a wagon from the kitchen as soon as Katsuko-nee says that.
「 There’s also your share for today so don’t worry 」
「 Ah, anything’s fine as long as it’s not Umaibou 」
「 I ate the same meal earlier. It’s very delicious 」
Ruriko says while putting the dishes on the table.
「 Well, I’ll help out as well 」
Yoshiko-san tries to help after seeing Ruriko working around, but.
「 It’s okay. Yoshiko-chan is our guest so sit down. I’ve already finished my meal 」
Ruriko tells Yoshiko-san with a smile.
「 The terrine is truly delicious 」
「 Oh, aren’t you usually eating something much more delicious? Like some foreign three-star restaurants or something? 」
Yukino speaks sarcastically.
「 Well, in Japan, there’s no such thing as real duck meat 」
「 It’s mostly cross breed of Mallard and Domestic Duck. Even the meat for today is like that 」
「 But, they say that the cross breed isn’t suited for the Japanese tongue. What do you think, Ruriko-chan? Are genuine ducks different? I think Ruriko-chan ate duck with a number on their plates as a commemoration in one of the Paris restaurants, haven’t you? 」
「 No, I haven’t, that restaurant is only one-star 」
「 Grandfather said that he doesn’t want to go sightseeing in a restaurant with bad taste 」
「 Hmmm. It was initially a three-star restaurant, but to think that it has fallen to one-star, true gourmet won’t go there anymore. Besides, it’s just tourists who go there because it’s a shop with history 」
「 Also, that store caused Japan a lot of troubles. Grandfather felt that it’s painful, so he didn’t want to go. 」
「 Oh, it’s the wasabi soy sauce incident 」
「 Huh, what’s that, Katsuko-nee? 」
「 Yes, you see, in one of those shops in Paris, someone purposely brought “wasabi soy sauce” from Japan and put it on the duck meat. Saying “my soy sauce is better than this restaurant’s soy sauce” 」
Those people exist?
「 Indeed, to think that someone went to another country’s well-known restaurant then denied the taste of their food, and even pressed their Japanese flavor. That’s disgraceful 」
Shou-neechan enters the room with that line.
「 Though you think that the taste doesn’t suit the Japanese people, you’re traveling abroad, you should enjoy the taste of their country’s original cuisines 」
「 I mean, that person planned to nitpick on that restaurant from the start, right? Usually, you wouldn’t carry wasabi or even soy sauce when going to a restaurant in France at night 」
Shou-neechan said. Nagisa replied.
「 Shou-oneesan, sit here 」
Katsuko-nee prepares a seat for Shou-neechan,
「 My, You even cooked a meal for me? 」
「 Of course, enjoy your meal 」
「 By the way, Papa 」
「 By the way, Papa! 」
Agnes and Mao-chan ask me worriedly.
「 Who’s this girl? 」
「 Who?! Who?! 」
Oh, I haven’t introduced Luna to them yet.
「 You see, this girl is Takakura LUna 」
I point at Luna.
Luna bows her head.
「 Luna? 」
「 Na? 」
「 Yes. Luna, this is Agnes. And that one is Mao-chan. You two, greet her 」
Agnes and Mao are a bit restrained with Luna.
「 I-I’m Agnes 」
「 Mao-chan! 」
Mao-chan adds “-chan” on her name.
「 H-Hello, I-I’m Takakura Luna 」
Luna has a bit of fear in her tone.
「 Boku? Are you a boy? 」
「 Eeh? She’s a girl 」
「 I-I’m a girl 」
「 You’re a girl, and yet you call yourself “Boku” 」
「 “Boku”? 」
Agnes watches various movie recordings to learn about the world.
Therefore, she seems to think that a girl refers to herself as “Boku.”
Come to think of it, she hasn’t watched any show with a “Boku girl” at all.
「 Even though you’re a girl? Strange 」
「 Strange, strange! 」
I need to teach her.
「 Well, that’s Luna’s individuality. Don’t mind it too much, Agnes, Mao-chan 」
「 Individuality 」
「 Agnes, for example, someone tells you, “Why is your hair blonde and your eyes blue? You’re different from everyone. That’s strange,” how would you reply? 」
「 Ugh 」
「 But, Agnes is born that way. That is Agnes’ individuality is different from everyone, it’s nothing strange 」
「 I see, desuno 」
Agnes replies with a meek face.
Oh, she minds that her appearance is different from the other family members.
「 That’s why, even if you meet someone different, you need to think that “they’re that kind of person” It doesn’t matter if everyone’s different. Isn’t it interesting that people are different? 」
「 Indeed. Agnes-chan’s hair is beautiful, Edie-chan also looks funny. It’s all good! 」
Don’t call Edie “funny” because she’s tanned.
「 Besides, Michi-oneechan, she’s older and yet her chest is so flat, it’s funny. It’s also individuality, isn’t it? 」
Mao-chan. If MIchi heard that she’d die in agony
「 Mugyugyugyugyuuuu 」
I hear a muffled voice at the entrance.
Ah. It’s Michi.
She heard it.
Tsukiko, Yomiko, Nei, and Edie are all here.
「 Michi, don’t mind it. Get yourself together 」
I hurry towards Michi and hug her petite body.
I massage Michi’s flat chest on top of her uniform.
「 It’s okay, in Michi’s case, the core seems to be swelling from now on! 」
Touching it right now feels that there’s a layer of elasticity under her skin.
「 Michi will surely become a woman! 」
「 I’ll do my best! 」
Edie’s smiling as she looks at Michi who’s showing a complicated face.
Oh, she’s sharing the control of Tsukiko and Yomiko’s Qi with Edie.
Even if Michi has a large amount of Qi emissions, she’ll be tired to hold down the Takakura sisters alone.
「 As always. You have a lot of trouble 」
Yukino looks at me and smiles wryly.
◇ ◇ ◇
Tsukiko and Yomiko changed to the same shrine maiden uniform as Luna.
They wear the same red Hakama.
Although, the shrine maiden clothes of the two have a transparent material that their cute breasts and nipples are visible.
「 Well, I guess that’s good for now 」
Nei said. Oh, Nei chose this costume.
「 Okay, here, sit down next to Luna and eat 」
Katsuko-nee asks Tsukiko and Yomiko to sit.
However, Agnes and Mana-chan aren’t making a fuss about Tsukiko and Yomiko like they did with Luna.
They don’t ask who they are or what’s their relationship with me.
I knew it, they only reacted to Luna because they’re close in age.
They must think that Luna might take me away from them.
They’re wary only with Luna.
「 Here. Tsukiko-sama. Yomiko-sama 」
Ruriko places a soup dish in front of the two.
「 T-Thank you 」
「 Sorry to trouble you, Ruriko-sama 」
The Takakura sisters must be surprised that the daughter of Kouzuki house is serving them plates.
「 Don’t mind it, Ruriko likes to do housework 」
「 Yes. It’s fun to do 」
Megu’s standing in front of the kitchen, she’s not coming close.
Is she still angry with me?
No, it’s Yukino, I guess?
「 So, it’s these girls this time? 」
Yukino asks me.
「 Yeah 」
「 Is it another order from the old man? 」
「 It’s not an order. It’s something we agreed on 」
「 You really seem to love being involved, don’t you? 」
Yukino glares at me.
「 Was there any girl that you wanted to have sex with without anyone telling you to do it from the start? 」
「 That’s not true, there’s you 」
「 Ngu! 」
「 You’re the only one I had sex with because I wanted to from the start 」
I look at Yukino’s stomach.
「 Take care of your body 」
「 Oh shut up. You don’t have to tell me that, I already am 」
The Takakura sisters are surprised by Yukino’s loud voice.
Their faces say “What’s with this person?”
It’s troublesome to explain it right now.
「 Tsukiko, do you girls watch TV or something? 」
I asked just in case.
「 No 」
Tsukiko replied immediately.
「 Not at all? 」
「 Yes, Takakura shrine has no TV at all 」
「 They say that TV’s vulgar Qi is not good for the shrine! 」
Tsukiko and Yomiko said.
「 As part of our shrine maiden training, we’re kept from mundane things as much as possible 」
Tsukiko says while casting her eyes downward.
Then it’s natural for them not to know Yukino.
Now then, what to do?
「 Okay, everyone has their plates, right? Well then, enjoy your meal 」
Katsuko-nee says while I’m thinking.
「 Yay! Thanks for the meal! 」
「 Itadakimasu! 」
Mao-chan and Agnes say loudly.
Then, me too.
「 Thanks for the meal, go ahead and eat as well girls 」
I urged them.
「 Yes, thank you for the meal 」
「 Itadakimasu 」
「 Itadakimasu 」
The Takakura sisters start eating.
「 Itadaki! 」
Yukino looks energetic.
「 Thank you 」
「 Itadakimasu 」
「 Itadakimasu 」
「 Itadakimasu 」
Shou-neechan, Nagisa, Yoshiko-san, Mana also start eating.
「 Then, I’m going to start the prep on the other side! 」
Nei? The other side?
「 It’s tonight’s venue, the upper room should do, right? 」
Oh, it would be the place for me to take away the Takakura sisters’ virginity after the meal.
「 Yeah, I’ll leave it to Ya-chan 」
「 Okay~ Leave it to me! I mean, Mii-chan’s already starting the preparations though! 」
Oh, that’s why I haven’t seen Misuzu.
Did she eat first to make preparations for the location?
「 Come to think of it, where’s Minaho-neesan? 」
「 She’s in a meeting with Margo-oneechan 」
「 Rei-chan? 」
「 Watching the house’s defense system 」
It’s still possible that the Yakuza attacks.
「 With that said. Megu-chan, could you come with me to help prepare the room above? 」
Nei calls Megu.
「 Ah, yes, Nei-oneesan 」
Megu follows Nei, but.
「 Ah, sorry but leave Megu here 」
I tell nei.
「 Oh, I see 」
Nei looks at Yukino.
「 She needs to overcome her weakness, right 」
「 Huh? What? Megu, you’re weak with me? 」
「 That’s right, I don’t like you 」
Megu said sullenly.
「 Yukino, aren’t you the same? 」
「 Well 」
「 Though I am, I know that I just have to be calm 」
「 You know that I need to survive in the world of TV even though I don’t understand anything, right? I learned those for the past four months 」
Yukino tells us.
「 If I don’t show a calm face, it’s unknown what they’ll do to you. If they see that you’re scared, then they’d go further. I can’t show a scared face to you people all the time 」
Yukino’s popular on the TV because of her arrogant persona.
Everyone thinks that her aloof personality is fun.
Before one knows, she’s no longer Shirasaka Sousuke’s daughter,
She’s now known as Shirasaka Yukino, an amusing talent.
「 Even now I do. I’m the “away” in this mansion, right? I’ve got only bad memories here, Megumi’s also here. But, I have to look calm. If I look timid, you all will mess me up, right? 」
「 Not anymore 」
「 I don’t trust you. You’re the man who’d rape me to my cervix if I let my guard down. That’s just how you are 」
「 That’s enlightening 」
No, look, I won’t rape someone when there’s a chance.
I don’t have plans for that now.
「 I must have a stout heart no matter what happens 」
Oh, that’s what she’s impressed with.
She doesn’t think that I’ll attack her.
「 By the way, Megumi, how about stay calm too? 」
Yukino tells Megu.
「 You’ve got no composure at all. You always shake around like a small animal, you think that someone would take away this guy that you look uneasy even in school 」
Yukino saw that?
「 You see, this guy knows what to do when it comes to practical problems but, what can he do if you keep showing an anxious look! If you continue to look uneasy, then this guy will no longer try to come to you. You see?! 」
「 Yukino 」
Megu’s shocked from what Yukino said.
「 I mean, you all are smart, or rather, too considerate! There are so many women gathered for him, and yet you don’t get to fights and only get along, that’s impossible in an ordinary scenario! Seriously, you all can assert yourselves, and yet you try to make a compromise with the others because you understand them, don’t you? Well, who cares about that 」
Yukino continues her talk.
「 Although, you can understand it with your head but your feelings can’t, right? Especially hypocrites like Megumi 」
Megu’s listening to Yukino’s story.
「 You keep on massing your dissatisfaction that it explodes, doesn’t it? That’s stupid. If you store too much and it blows, it would be too huge that it would spread fire to others. What matters is that it’s a fatal wound that breaks relationships 」
Yukino can now imagine the state of other people’s mind.
She used to abuse others while only focusing on her emotions on the spot.
「 Megumi, and everyone else. If you’re dissatisfied trying to get along, then it’s better to fight each other and reconcile. You people don’t fight enough 」
「 Maybe. They say that having a good relationship means you fight, but we don’t have quarrels at all 」
Nei tells everyone.
「 See? It’s stupid. Too smart got you too self-important. I’m telling you all 」
Yukino might be correct.
Our family is making compromises with each other too much.
「 Your relationship doesn’t allow fights after all 」
