「 Uuu, uuu, uuuu 」
Agnes can never leave her cautious state as Torii-san is still here.
She continues to cling to me, so I carry her as we move.
Agnes is still 12, but she’s developed, so it’s a bit heavy.
But it can’t be helped.
I cautiously carry her.
「 Where should we go first? 」
Misuzu asks when we step inside the mansion.
「 For now, let’s go see Tendou Otome
I don’t know what kind of a person she is unless I see her.
「 But, Ruriko and I shouldn’t stay with her
Misuzu replied immediately.
「 If the ladies of Kouzuki house is present, she might get nervous 」
「 I mean, it’s risky 」
Torii-san interjects from the side.
「 The other side is a scary person coming from the enemy territory. She might attack Misuzu-sama or Ruriko-sama if given the opportunity 」
「 That won’t show up 」
「 But, it’s better if Misuzu and the girls aren’t present, yeah 」
Kansai Yakuza, the people who sent Tendou Otome, are hostile against Kouzuki house.
If someone from Kouzuki house is there, then she’ll strongly revolt.
「 Then, we’ll wait in another room. Ruriko? 」
「 Yes, Onee-sama 」
「 Then, Agnes, come with Misuzu 」
I told Agnes.
「 Bururururu, bakerata! 」
Agnes shakes her head in refusal.
She’s clinging harder to me.
「 Err, Princes Agnes says… 」
「 No, you don’t have to translate that one Koyomi-chan 」
Then, I speak to Agnes.
「 Do you not want to part from me? 」
「 Bakerata! 」
Now she nods her head.
「 But you know… 」
Going to meet up with a spy while having Agnes cling to me.
「 I think that’s okay 」
Then, Misuzu looked at Mizushima Karen-san from behind her.
「 Did Tendou Otome do anything strange to you? 」
「 Strange? 」
Karen-san tilts her head.
「 No, nothing in particular. She only made sure that I don’t reveal her true colors to the people around me 」
Tendou Otome became Mizushima Karen-san’s bodyguard to come here.
「 Did she tell you anything? 」
「 No, it’s only been a week since she came, so we hardly talk. I never tried to start up a conversation with her 」
Hearing that, Edie;
「 She probably doesn’t want to forcibly involve some unrelated girl. That’s why she didn’t force any contact 」
「 But, what about Takahama-san? Wasn’t she involved? 」
Bodyguards have no right to speak, so the young lady from Takahama products is the one who keeps on messing up Misuzu’s party.
「 That’s because it’s her preference 」
「 That young lady is in high school. And this one is in elementary. I think Tendou Otome prefers girls from the same generation, right? 」
Yeah, she doesn’t want to make a move on Karen-san, a 12-year-old girl.
She prefers Takahama-san, a high schooler, as her minion.
「 Therefore, she won’t make a move on Agnes. She can become a bulletproof vest for Darling if she clings like that 」
No, this soft and squishy cutie can’t become a bulletproof vest at all.
「 I think it’s better if Agnes-chan comes along 」
「 Perhaps, the scary guys from Kouzuki SS has already interrogated her. Onii-sama and Agnes-chan can be good enough to ease up her tension 」
「 I get that, but why me too? 」
「 Yeah. Ruriko’s right, Darling’s isn’t scary at all. Or should I say that you make people feel at ease 」
「 Really? 」
That’s not my intention though.
「 Don’t worry about it. Either way, I’m also coming 」
If Edie’s guarding us, it should be okay.
「 Michi, what about you? 」
Edie asks Michi, who’s following Misuzu silently.
「 I’ll continue guarding Misuzu-oneesama. I can leave Master to Edie for tonight, and if there’s the two of us there, it’ll only stimulate her 」
「 Besides, 」
「 Right, instead of a defender, an attacker, no, it should be someone with the training to infiltrate and takedown people, or else she will make a move 」
Edie learned assassination techniques from the assassination cult in New Orleans.
「 Edie’s the one keeping her in check earlier, so she was able to stop the escape attempt 」
Michi said. Edie looked at me.
「 Darling, Tsukiko’s power has another weak point. 」
「 Reading someone’s mind, understanding it, and making a specific way to deal with it has a time lag 」
「 Tsukiko noticed that Tendou Otome woke up, and thought of escaping during an opportunity. But, when she’s trying to stop her with her power, she’s already starting to move 」
Tsukiko knew the other side’s thoughts using Miko power, yet,
She’s too late to chase after Tendou Otome with her trained speed.
「 I just happened to be checking in, so it went well. I slammed Tendou Otome with my Qi as soon as she got up. Then, Tsukiko made her faint again. To be precise, she will not open her eyes unless Tsukiko orders her to wake up. While at it, Kouzuki SS has her tied up with their tools. Tsukiko’s watching her now 」
I see, if she’s tied up, it’s still safe even if Tendou Otome wakes up suddenly.
「 In short, when her consciousness returned, she confirmed the status in the room and moved to escape immediately 」
「 Correct. Before her consciousness is clear, her body responded ahead. Therefore, Tsukiko couldn’t deal with it. Then that means, Tendou Otome wants to live 」
「 I think that’s her true feelings too 」
She looked at me.
「 Onii-sama, I’ve seen this TV documentary back then… 」
「 They say that the Islam extremist suicide bombing in Moscow was done by females 」
「 That woman was from a poor village in central Asia, that after she died from exploding the bomb tucked in her stomach in the designated location, the family she left behind was paid handsomely, or so the documentary says 」
「 She never left her hometown before, hopeless from her hard life, thinking that they don’t mind dying, so she went to Moscow with a bomb and travel expenses, but… 」
「 Seeing the gorgeous big-city landscape for the first time, she was moved and thought “to think that there are these bright places in this world,” suddenly, she felt that suicide bombing is an absurd idea. Thus, she didn’t blow herself up and surrendered to the police 」
Oh, she wasn’t aware of the world other than the place she was born and raised.
When she saw that the world is much different, then…
「 I think that Tendou-san might be like that too 」
Her father is a Kyoukaku, and so she lived a life in yakuza since childhood.
「 Therefore, please teach her what fun is 」
「 Before Onii-sama taught me; I thought that the world is small, where it’s just Yoshiko-oneesama, me, and the people around me 」
「 Bakerata 」
Agnes looks at me.
「 Right, Agnes too 」
I pat Agnes’ back and shake her.
「 Okay, let’s go then 」
「 This way 」
Edie’s the only one who knows the room where Tendou Otome is kept.
「 Ah, wait wait, I’m going too 」
Torii-san says in a hurry.
「 Huh? 」
「 Safety isn’t a problem, right? Then I’m going too. I have Haiji with me 」
「 Can’t help it. Let’s bring her too 」
「 I knew you’d get it 」
Torii-san and Edie are hitting it off since earlier.
「 But I don’t want to come though 」
「 Geez, Haiji, you… 」
「 Yes, I understand, I will come. Mariko-ojousama 」
Adelheid-san replied in a hateful tone.
「 I will go too 」
「 It’s not just Tsukiko-sama, but Yomi-san and Luna-san are also present, aren’t they? 」
Oh, Koyomi-chan’s reading my thoughts.
Right, I told the Takakura sisters that they will change Tendou Otome’s personality.
「 If that’s the case, I should join in too 」
Koyomi-chan also has Miko power.
「 Okay, you’re coming too. Stand behind Edie, don’t go far from her 」
「 Yes. Thank you 」
「 Agnes, don’t part from me either, okay? 」
「 Bakerata 」
She hugs me tighter.
「 Then, please take care 」
Misuzu and Ruriko send us off with a bow.
◇ ◇ ◇
「 Ah, Nii-san! 」
Luna and Yomi are in front of the door.
「 Kuromori-sama asked us to wait here for Sensei, so we can go inside together 」
Minaho-neesan moved the two here.
「 Tsukiko-oneesama said that her mind is quite twisted, so it’s better if we don’t stay in the same room. 」
「 Twisted? 」
「 Yes. Earlier, Luna and I saw it. Her thoughts are messed up 」
「 Right. It’s something like “I want to live,” or “if this goes on, I should die” 」
「 It’s like she can’t pick which ice cream flavor she wants. Vanilla and Chocolate 」
That means the thoughts of wanting to live and wanting to die are jumbling inside Tendou Otome’s head?
「 Yes, something like that! 」
「 As expected of Nii-san! 」
The two read my thoughts and replied.
「 What do you mean? 」
Torii-san looks at what’s happening and is curious.
「 You know, I’ve been thinking about it since earlier, but you girls look like you can read minds 」
She’s not an idiot.
I mean, her intuition is sharp.
That’s the reason why Momoko-neechan left Torii-san to observe us.
「 Yes. That’s it 」
Edie said without a care.
「 No way, are you just trying to play a prank on me? 」
She’s sharp but is also doubtful.
「 Why would we do that? We want to drag Mariko in as our ally, so why would we lie to you? 」
「 Didn’t I tell you already? I’m with Momoko-oneesama, I will not become yours. Besides, you should serve me instead. I can ask Papa and pay you as much as you want 」
She’s trying to get Edie in front of me and her current bodyguard, Adelheid-san.
That freedom is her strength.
「 It’s not about money 」
「 Oh? I know that Kudou Michi-san has some honor as Misuzu-sama’s bodyguard, but being Kuromori-sama’s bodyguard means that it’s just money talk, isn’t it? 」
Oh, Torii-san’s talking to Edie this lively because,
She thought that she could get Edie with money since Michi is an impossible buy.
「 You came all the way to Japan for money, just like Haiji, didn’t you? 」
Torii-san, who is a semi-nobility, couldn’t find a suitable bodyguard in the country.
That’s why she hired Adelheid-san from Europe.
And I’m also not a member of the nobility, just Misuzu’s fiance.
Therefore, she thinks that I’m just like her that I hired Edie from America.
「 It’s not about money, it’s love 」
「 Love? 」
「 I love Darling, Misuzu, Ruriko, Michi, and Agnes, Yomi, and Luna. I love them, so I keep them safe. It’s not about the money 」
「 W-What the hell? 」
Torii-san can’t understand it, it seems.
「 We’re a big family. And I want Mariko to join that family. Also, you too 」
「 M-Me? 」
Adelheid-san is surprised.
「 Well, you’ll understand it soon enough 」
Edie knocks on the door.
「 Yes? 」
Tsukiko’s voice comes from inside.
「 It’s Edie. Darling’s with me. 」
「 Please open the door 」
「 Okay, I’m opening now 」
That voice isn’t from Tsukiko.
Click, the door’s lock opened up.
Oh, Tendou Otome attempted to escape earlier, so,
They made sure that everything’s locked up.
Click, the door opened.
「 Thank you for waiting, come in 」
Showing up is Kinoshita-san from Kouzuki SS>
Right, she’s brought here out of the worry that Tsukiko’s alone.
She’s still wearing the same maid clothing from the party, and the flail on her shoulder.
Showing her bright smile as usual. She’s a person with no air of tension around her.
「 The spy rampaged earlier, so I brought in some binding tools, and Seki-san instructed us to keep her monitored all the time 」
Oh, I get it.
「 I cannot do some things alone after all 」
Tsukiko shows up.
「 What happened? 」
「 Well, She was carrying poison with her 」
「 A capsule used for suicide, probably 」
Kinoshita-san said with a smiel.
「 No, that was dangerous. She could’ve put that in the drinks or food of anyone in the party 」
It might’ve harmed the young ladies.
「 Nope. All of us maids know that she’s under suspicion. We monitor each and every action of hers. She should know that as well 」
That if she tried to put something in the food or drinks, Kouzuki SS would deal with her beforehand.
「 Really, why have a high school girl in an away territory? This is the main mansion of the Kouzuki clan. Almost everything in here is watched 」
「 Now that you say that 」
「 As soon as she woke up, she tried to escape, and so she thought of swallowing the poison. I sensed that, and thus, 」
「 She has capsules hidden in her hair and inside her underwear 」
「 Maybe she has others? 」
I asked. Tsukiko…
「 I don’t think there’s any other than those. Or that’s as far as her memory goes 」
If Tendou Otome doesn’t know where it is, she can’t use it, even if another is placed somewhere.
「 We already checked that she’s the only infiltrator 」
「 Yeah, that’s right 」
「 Yes. That’s right 」
Tsukiko, Luna, and Yomi replied.
The three split the labor and checked all of the guests’ thoughts.
「 So, she’s still fainted? 」
「 Yes. I can wake her up anytime 」
「 So, where is she? 」
We’re all talking pronoun games since earlier, but,
I don’t see anyone sleeping on the bed over there.
「 Kou-sama, not there, this way 」
Tsukiko points on the other side of the room.
「 Huh? 」
She’s tied up on the sofa.
Her legs are spread on M shape.
「 Why is she not wearing her panties? 」
「 It’s because a poison capsule is sewn in her underwear 」
「 I cut it off with scissors 」
「 Also, there’s nothing else hidden in her bra, as you can see 」
Kinoshita-san flips Tendou Otome’s clothes.
Exposing the breasts to us.
Her nipples are pink.
「 It’s all transported to another room along with the capsule hidden in her hair 」
She said with a smile.
「 Putting that aside, hide those parts at least! We have a guy here! 」
「 Huh? 」
Kinoshita-san looks dumbfounded.
She was a member of Banbarubie 3, a vulgar group back then.
Her delicacy’s gone.
Ruby-san had her breasts exposed all the time, right…
「 Hurry up and hide them 」
「 Hide what? 」
「 Her breasts! 」
「 Oh right. She’ll get colds if left exposed 」
Kinoshita-san hides Tendou Otome’s raw breasts with clothes again.
「 A-Also… 」
「 What’s next? 」
「 U-Uhm, her lower part too! 」
Torii-san shouts with a blushing face.
「 No, you can’t, I tied her up to make an M shape with her legs. 」
Kinoshita-san replied calmly.
「 Why did you make it like that? 」
「 I wonder? That was the instructions 」
Minaho-neesan or Jii-chan.
Anyway, the instructions were to give Tendou Otome a humiliating pose when she wakes up.
「 I get the reason 」
「 W-What do you mean? 」
「 It’s to see whether Tendou Otome is really an Otome(female/virgin) or not 」
「 D-Don’t be ridiculous! Hey, why are you staring so hard! 」
「 No, it just happened 」
「 Don’t tell me that! Why the hell are you still staring at it? 」
「 So, what do you think, Darling? 」
「 Is Tendou Otome a virgin? 」
「 She is. Her legs are spread that wide, and yet it’s not opening. 」
Tendou Otome’s slit remains a cleanly cut meat.
「 If it’s used, then it should be gaping wide 」
「 Hey! Don’t go specific now!!! 」
Torii-san scolds me, blushing.
「 Oh, sorry. No, but… 」
Well, calling it gaping wide, that’s…
Now that I remember it;
「 Nii-san, what does “Manko Kapakku” mean? 」
Luna, who read my mind, asked…
「 “Manko Kapakku” is the name of the last emperor in the Incan empire 」
「 Huh? Wait? Why the hell is that a name?! 」
Torii-san doesn’t get it.
She’s raised as a young lady, after all.
「 Aah, stop reading the bad puns in my head, Luna!! 」
I try to remove the thought inside my head, but…
「 I mean, what does “Manko Kapakku” mean? 」
「 Oh, so that’s it! 」
「 Well, this part of women is “Manko” 」
She pointed at her crotch and said.
「 Then, if you open it wide, it makes a “Kappa” sound 」
「 Oh, so “Manko Kappaku” 」
「 I see 」
Yomi and Luna, don’t be impressed with a lame pun.
Ah, I want to die.
「 Kou-sama, please don’t die over a lame joke 」
And now Tsukiko’s worried about me.
Aaaah, to think that there are so many people reading my thoughts.
「 So, you want to see Tendou Otome’s Manko Kappaku? 」
Edie smiled at me.
「 It’s not Manko Kappaku, but hymen, isn’t it? 」
Luna speaks like it’s natural.
「 W-What are you talking about? 」
Torii-san’s surprised by what the 12-year-old girl said.
「 I mean, it’s natural to show the hymen to Nii-san 」
「 Right 」
「 Yes, it is 」
「 Yep, yep 」
「 Bakerat 」
Luna, Tsukiko, Yomi, Edie, Agnes?
「 Huh? Really? 」
「 It’s natural! 」
Torii-san and Adelheid-san are both dumbfounded.
「 But, I guess we should see it with the permission of the person herself 」
「 I’ll wake her up now, please give me a moment 」
