「 Okay, everyone changed their clothes? Then let’s go 」
Nei leads everyone.
「 U-Uhm, why do we have to wear clothes like this? 」
Torii-san speaks with a confused look.
It’s no wonder, Nei brought the change of clothes for the girls who took a bath.
「 Huh? Why not? It’s better when everyone’s wearing casual 」
White T-shirt on top of their white panty.
They’re not wearing any bra, and so their nipples are visible, and the T-shirt has thin fabric, and so the color is visible as well.
「 It’s like a pajama party! But since we couldn’t prepare pajamas for everyone. Oh, by the way, the shirt is the stock for Yo-chan 」
Yeah, they’re all of the same sizes.
It’s too small for Rei-chan that the chest part is exposed.
On the other hand, it’s too big for the younger girls that it’s cute.
「 Agnes looks like Hakase! 」
Nei says while looking at Agnes flapping her arms.
「 What is that? 」
「 Well, it’s a character from an old manga. I’ll show it to you next time 」1
Nei read every manga that’s in the mansion’s library.
And she talks about the manga that she finds interesting with everyone.
「 The other day, Kyouko-san called me and asked, ‘what manga is popular in Japan nowadays?’ So I replied, ‘Attack on Titan.’ Then, Kyouko-san said, ‘Attack on Titan? Oh, Uno Jukichi’s biography?’ 」
Nei continues to laugh, but we don’t get what’s funny about it.
Who’s that guy?
「 Anyway, you can relax wearing that 」
In the end, Nei dodged the question.
Everyone’s wearing T-shirts and naked underneath as they walk around the corridors of the Kouzuki mansion.
Tendou Otome’s also wearing a T-shirt and panty combo. Tsukiko, Rei-chan, Michi, and Edie monitor her.
Adelheid-san put on the same clothes without saying anything and follows us silently. She must be thinking of something.
Mizushima Karen-san is following behind Misuzu.
On the other hand, Mao-chan and younger girls are energetic.
「 Hey now, don’t run around too much, just follow us without making too much noise 」
At times like this, Yomi looks after them, like an elder sister.
By the way, I’m the only one wearing a shirt and pants. I even have socks and shoes.
It’s not the same clothing I used at the party.
It’s ordinary clothing that makes it easy to move.
I mean, my pants are the usual school uniform.
This shirt is also the one I usually wear at school, removing the badge.
As for the shoes, it’s not leather shoes, but the sports shoes I wear most of the time.
Nei came over to bring this to me.
We might go outside this mansion later.
Not as Misuzu’s partner, Kuromori Kou, but as the ordinary high school boy, Yoshida Yoshinobu.
Rei-chan and Michi are wearing the same shirt as everyone, and so,
I don’t think they’re scheduled to move.
No, Tendou Otome’s father and the people related to Kansai Yakuza are outside, and so, Rei-chan, the face of Kouzuki SS, and Michi, who is Misuzu’s personal bodyguard, will not show up.
If their aim is to use the media and lower Kouzuki house’s reputation, then,
We can’t let them record Rei-chan and Michi fight off the Yakuza.
Although, I’m curious as to why Edie’s also wearing the same thing.
It’s just Mao-chan, Nei, and me, who are wearing proper clothes.
Although I don’t think Mao-chan will go outside later.
「 Here, I have cold tea ready for everyone! 」
Mana’s lying down and waiting on the sofa inside the guest room.
Mana’s also wearing nothing but a T-shirt and apron on top.
「 Oh? What a beautiful girl 」
Mana now is so beautiful that Torii-san unconsciously said that.
「 Ah, it’s all thanks to Onii-chan 」
She bows her head.
「 I am Onii-chan’s little sister. Mana 」
「 Little sister? Kuromori-san? 」
Torii-san looked at me.
「 And if I recall, that one is the elder sister 」
Torii-san looked at Nei.
「 Got problems? 」
「 No, I’d say that you two look similar, but Kuromori-san doesn’t belong 」
Nei and Mana look similar?
Well, Nei’s a transcendent beauty, and Mana’s also growing to become more beautiful.
「 Yeah, it’s because we’re not connected by blood! 」
Mana said with a smile.
「 Oh, is that so? 」
「 Yes. That’s why we also have lots of sex. I can also bear Onii-chan’s child, we’re not connected by blood after all! 」
Mana said brightly. Torii-san.
「 W-Well, I-I’m not from your house, so I don’t understand, so I don’t think it’s right for me to say, but, 」
「 Mana’s born to make Onii-chan happy! There are no problems 」
「 Ah, okay. I see 」
「 You probably think that you’re outside the norms of the young ladies, but, 」
Edie speaks to Torii-san.
「 The world has people lacking in common sense. I’m sure that if you talk to Yukino, you will be surprised. She’s avant-garde 」
I think Torii-san will benefit from talking to Yukino.
「 Ah, you’re here 」
Minaho-neesan enters the room.
Of course, she’s wearing proper clothes.
「 It’s okay for everyone to relax, but I want to start pressing the conversation in regards to Tendou-san 」
I knew it.
「 Let’s sit down on the corner over there. Tendou-san and Tsukiko-san, can you come with me? 」
「 Yes, Kuromori-sama 」
「 Reika-san, you can leave. It will be Kuromori house that will deal with Tendou Sadao-san, not Kouzuki SS 」
I knew it would be like that.
「 Yes. Then, Mao-chan, let’s go drink some tea 」
「 Yes, Onii-chan still has some jobs to finish, let’s go over there! 」
Mana calls out to Mao-chan.
「 Eeh?! But I thought I could play with Papa 」
「 Don’t be selfish! Let’s go over there 」
Agnes takes the lead and goes together with mana.
「 Koyomi-chan and Luna-chan, go with Mao-chan 」
Minaho-neesan told the two.
That means, Yomi’s joining the dispatch.
「 We have Mao-chan’s favorite Cafe Ole here 」
Mao-chan prefers milk overflowing, so I wouldn’t call it Cafe Ole, but coffee milk.
「 Okay, Papa! Mao’s going over there 」
「 Yeah, try to get along with the new girls 」
「 Okay 」
Mana brings Mao-chan and goes to the back of the room.
「 Should we go over there too? 」
Ruriko asked, but,
「 No, Ruriko-san and Misuzu-san have to stay 」
「 You want to know what’s going on, don’t you? 」
「 Although, I don’t mind if I were to discover the details later 」
「 I feel sorry that Mana-chan has to take care of the little girls alone 」
Ruriko’s heart has changed to a perfect housewife.
「 It’s okay, Rei-chan’s there too 」
Rei-chan loves small girls, and so she will play with Mao-chan happily.
「 Kouzuki SS is now excluded, but I would like someone from Kouzuki house to be present here 」
「 If that’s the case, uhm, Minaho-oneesama 」
「 Where is Yoshiko-oneesama currently? 」
It seems that she’s curious as to why Yoshiko-san, the other daughter of Kouzuki house, isn’t present.
「 She’s with Katsuko, preparing dinner for everyone. It’s okay, Katsuko’s looking after her 」
Yeah, it should be okay if Katsuko-nee’s with her.
「 Yoshiko-sama hasn’t decided on how to deal with times like this, and so, leave her for now, okay? 」
Misuzu told Ruriko.
「 And, you are Torii-sama and the bodyguard, Adelheid Katori-san, am I correct? 」
Minaho-neesan looked at the two.
「 T-That’s right, what about it? 」
It seems that Torii-san’s frightened.
「 Torii-sama has come over to watch as per Kaan Momoko-sama’s request, but, 」
「 So what? 」
「 There is no turning back after this. I think that you should go over there and stay with the other girls 」
「 W-What’s with you!? 」
Torii-san lost to the pressure that she gets stubborn.
「 You did the same earlier, but who are you?!, Why do you not name yourself before me?! 」
Right, when she showed up at the party earlier,
Minaho-neesan doesn’t talk about who she is.
「 She doesn’t name herself because that is the answer 」
Misuzu told Torii-san.
「 Huh? I don’t get it. She knows who I am, and yet she never names herself. Isn’t that unfair? 」
「 It’s because she belongs to the other side 」
Adelheid-san told Torii-san.
「 She doesn’t want Mariko-ojousama to become disadvantaged by becoming acquainted with someone from that side. You shouldn’t know her name, and you should forget what she’s going to talk about now 」
「 Correct 」
Then, she looked at Tendou Otome.
「 The disasters Tendou-san brought from Kansai will not resolve itself unless we deal with it illegally. Kouzuki SS is a company that belongs to the surface, and so they can’t do anything absurd. Therefore, it’s the people from the underground society’s turn, our turn 」
That’s how it is.
「 Therefore, Mariko-ojousama, let’s go there 」
「 Geez, Haiji, you plan on leaving me? 」
「 She’s giving her advice only to Mariko-ojousama. As for me, I’m already 」
「 Already what? 」
「 Look, we’ve already seen Misuzu-sama and Ruriko-sama’s private affairs earlier in the bathroom! 」
「 Go say ‘sex’ 」
「 We’ve discovered secrets that we can never tell people outside. Mariko-ojousama, you belong from Torii house, and so they overlooked that, but I… 」
「 What do you mean? 」
Torii-san asks dumbfoundedly.
Yeah, she doesn’t know the risks she’s carrying.
「 Nothing will happen. It takes time for people to etch memories to their brain. Therefore, if you want, I can erase the memories of what you’ve seen right now. There is no need to stir deeply in your mind 」
「 Y-You’re saying that you want to remove our memories? 」
「 Yes. That’s the kind of power I have. Therefore, you don’t have to be afraid. If you do not like it, I can remove them all 」
Tsukiko told Adelheid-san
「 Right, I think that we can remove all their memories for today, but 」
Yeah, we can’t pick out which memories remain and which memories stay.
If Tsukiko were to do something that difficult, Adelheid-san’s mind would break.
If we want to remove a memory while also trying not to leave a scar in her mind, then we have to shave it off.
「 I-I don’t want that. I-I learned a lot for today 」
「 Then, would you like to keep those memories? 」
That means conspiring with our job from the underground.
We are going to begin our conversation and take action.
「 I-I understand 」
The bodyguard replied to Minaho-neesan.
「 I-I have resolved myself 」
「 Don’t worry. You’re not going to be involved in any crimes. Although, you will have to swear to never talk about what illegal events will happen later 」
「 You can make me do it with her power without the need for making a pledge, can’t you? 」
Adelheid-san looked at Tsukiko.
「 Isn’t that why we gave you a choice before all this? 」
「 But, I can’t do anything in the end since she has that power! I-I don’t know who to trust! 」
Naturally, Adelheid-san thinks that way.
Tsukiko said that she can erase her memories for today. And we can also change Adelheid-san to become a slave.
She could choose to leave, but she doesn’t feel safe either.
「 Stupid Haiji. You have to, it’s obvious 」
「 Do you know why Misuzu-sama and Ruriko-sama are here? They’re here to guarantee that these suspicious people aren’t unfair at all, right? 」
She just called Minaho-neesan ‘suspicious.’
「 But, these suspicious people could also erase Misuzu-sama and Ruriko-sama’s memories! 」
「 Look Haiji, the one with the power we don’t understand isn’t that suspicious person, but this woman 」
Torii-san pointed at Tsukiko.
「 Or maybe, I think those girls too 」
She points at Yomi and Luna.
「 And these people will only listen to Kuromori-san 」
Lastly, she pointed at me.
「 However, what if he follows the orders of the suspicious person? 」
Adelheid-san points at me and Minaho-neesan in that order.
「 I mean, have you been watching since earlier? 」
「 He’s someone I don’t understand that much, and probably unusual, but he’s been open with us, and he always shows the fair side, doesn’t he? He’s got nothing to hide, right? 」
Well, yeah, I’ve only shown myself have sex and ejaculate.
「 If he wants to trick us, then he’s done that long ago. He’s got too many personnel around him, besides 」
Torii-san looked at Misuzu.
「 Misuzu-sama, Ruriko-sama, and even Seki-san and Fujimiya-san from Kouzuki SS trust him. All the other cute girls too. Even young girls trust him. It’s unlikely that he’s a man with too much intelligence, or too low 」
「 Well, he’s an idiot. 」
「 Yeah, Yo-chan’s quite an idiot 」
「 But, that’s what I love about him 」
Edie, Nei, Misuzu.
「 See? Well, I don’t care much about it 」
Torii-san turned to Minaho-neesan.
「 After coming this far, I can understand why they’re going with the illegal means now. The situation calls for it. It has to be the underground society now 」
Then, to Tendou Otome.
「 How about you start talking? Who’s the hostage? 」
Torii-san said. Tendou Otome’s startle.d
「 Earlier, in the dressing room, when Kuromori-san’s elder sister talked to you…That’s what it meant, right? 」
Nei talked to Tendou Otome.
Nei talked about Tendou Otome’s sisters.
「 And the conclusion were to use illegal means to save those people, isn’t it? If Kouzuki SS, a company on the surface is dispatched, then it will be dangerous for them 」
Is that so?
「 You know it too, don’t you? Anyway, these people have done a lot of strange things like “Ahan~ Ufun~” but, they disclosed everything to us. They don’t hide secrets. I couldn’t possibly understand why their lifestyle is like that, but I think that they’re trustworthy 」
Well, yeah, we had lots of sex.
Torii-san couldn’t understand that life.
「 I can’t comprehend the real relationships, but Misuzu-sama and those young girls are all cooperating, getting along, smiling 」
When Michi leaked out, everyone just smiled and cleaned up the mess.
「 The suspicious people have increased, but my evaluation for these people still hasn’t changed. Torii Mariko trusts these people 」
「 Am I that suspicious? 」
Minaho-neesan asks me with a disheartened look.
「 Yeah, well, good luck 」
Edie pats Minaho-neesan’s shoulders.
「 As expected of Torii-san, I’m impressed how you speak what you think without thinking of the atmosphere 」
Misuzu told Torii-san.
「 Yes, that’s my strong point 」
Torii-san puffs her chest proudly.
「 Mariko-ojousama, that’s not something to brag about 」
「 That’s enough. Do whatever you want 」
Adelheid-san looked at me.
「 I feel like it’s much more advantageous for me to join in as an ally 」
「 You mean, you want to have sex with Darling? 」
「 Huh? 」
「 We don’t need women who can’t please Darling 」
「 T-That’s… 」
「 Edie, stop it 」
I hold Edie back.
「 Adelheid-san. If you’re only thinking about profit and loss, then you won’t understand us 」
I said. Adelheid-san looked at me.
「 How do I make a decision if not profit and loss? 」
「 It’s whether you need it or not 」
I replied immediately.
「 Knowing if both mutually need each other 」
「 Isn’t that the same? 」
Adelheid-san glared at me.
「 Wrong. My family doesn’t exist just for me. I want to make this family of mine happy, and so I will work hard. If I couldn’t, then I wouldn’t mind dying 」
「 Yo-chan! Don’t say that! 」
「 If you die for that reason, nobody will be happy! Yo-chan, you need to think of your own happiness along with the family 」
「 The family’s happiness 」
Mizushima Karen-san mutters.
「 Family…I… 」
Yeah, she’s got a lot to worry about.
「 We’re your family now 」
Misuzu embraced Karen-san.
「 You’ll understand it soon 」
「 I get it. I lost. I lost. I lost. It’s my loss 」
Tendou Otome shouted.
「 How can you all have the nerve to not use an interrogation specialist, nor torturer, nor using this woman’s Miko power to pry into my mind. Instead, you showed off some perverted sex, making it look like you’re having fun. Seriously, you all look down on me. Dammit! 」
She speaks frustratedly.
「 You’re Kuromori Minaho-san, aren’t you? 」
Tendou Otome looked at Minaho-neesan.
「 That’s correct 」
Tendou Otome infiltrated this mansion from the orders of Kansai Yakuza.
She knows about the secrets of Miko power and Kuromori.
「 You want to save us? 」
「 That depends on you 」
Minaho-neesan stares back at her.
「 If you save us, are we going to work for you? 」
Yeah, Kuromori is a brothel.
「 We’re a high-class brothel. We don’t need those who don’t sell at a high price 」
「 But, I don’t think anyone among them can do anything else other than prostitution, am I correct? 」
What does that mean?
「 Can I tell them what do I know? 」
「 Go on 」
Tendou Otome replies.
「 The Kansai Yakuza group who came to Tokyo; Their leader is her father, Tendou Sadao, but 」
「 To tell the truth, they were all half-hearted, and horrible at their jobs. Calling them sacrificial pawns is enough, they’re useless for the organization. In fact, the Kansai people only want to harass Kouzuki house. No matter how much noise Tendou Sadao creates, the Kansai organization will only refuse to take responsibility and say that they’re unrelated to them 」
They’ve only sent the lizard’s tail from the beginning?
「 On the other hand, if the people sent here are at their wits’ end since they will have no place in the organization anymore unless their campaign here brings great success 」
Yeah, they come here in desperation.
That’s why they’re going with the absurd actions, going for all or nothing.
「 And that group of troubled Yakuza brought their daughters to Tokyo 」
「 It’s not just Tendou Otome-san. You came here targeting the young ladies, like Misuzu-san, didn’t you? Therefore, the Kansai Organization didn’t pick only the incompetent; they also chose those who have daughters with age close to the young ladies. And they came to Tokyo together 」
「 For what purpose? 」
「 They use the young girls to let down their guard. Using the daughters of Yakuza… 」
「 That’s right. Trying to use indiscriminate terror on the young ladies who come to Misuzu-san’s school 」
Edie said. Minaho-neesan added.
「 Indiscriminate terror? 」
「 Most young ladies don’t have bodyguards, do they? They’ll make contact with them, kidnap them, then the father shows up and roughen her up, and then tell the girls “if you want to resent someone, then hate on Kouzuki house” 」
Tendou Otome said.
「 Then, the plan is for the father and daughter to do that repeatedly before the young ladies become cautious 」
「 That’s horrible 」
Torii-san trembles in anger.
「 But, your friends don’t want to do that, do they? 」
Tsukiko can read the memories rising up from inside Tendou Otome.
「 Obviously! Why do they have to join their father doing their crimes?! Furthermore! They’re helping their fathers kidnap and rape women! And if the police caught them, the father will go to prison and can come back to Yakuza after that, but the girls have no future! 」
Tendou Otome shouts.
「 It’s all because we were born daughters of Yakuza! It’s the reason why we have to join them for all these foul crimes, it’s just crazy! 」
「 But, he said this. “This is for the honor of our trade. It’s a job we need to do,” He’s an idiot! He’s scum! Just because a senior who he owes a lot gives an order, he now forces the innocent girls for this “Honor of our trade” bullshit! 」
Tendou Otome shouts all the emotions she’s accumulating so far.
「 Therefore, you persuaded your father and switched the plan to infiltration 」
「 That’s right! He’s all talk and no action, He couldn’t even come up with the plan on how to kidnap or rape them! Even after coming to Tokyo, all he does is pachinko and mahjong! But, the girls they brought still have school to attend…And if they continue to just lie around and do nothing, the bosses from Kansai will dispose of them That’s why I created the plan and gave the suggestion to the organization and executed it 」
So it was Tendou Otome who created the plan of infiltrating Mizushima house as a bodyguard?
「 Then, the one who pointed at Mizushima house is… 」
「 That’s one of the bosses in the organization. He read my plan and mailed me “Then, go to Mizushima house’ 」
「 Who’s the boss of that organization? 」
Minaho-neesan presses for an answer.
「 That’s… 」
Tendou Otome hesitates.
「 You can’t go back now, can you? 」
「 But, I still have my honor! 」
She glared at Minaho-neesan.
「 The young leader of the Saitou group…Irokuchou Ichiro-san 」
「 Y-You?! 」
「 I can read it from your thoughts, so it’s inevitable, don’t you think? 」
「 Thanks, Tsukiko-san 」
Minaho-neesan thanked her.
「 Then that means, we have three groups of people outside 」
「 After all, Tendou Otome-san’s infiltration in this party is the peak of the plan. If any uproar shows up, it will hurt Kouzuki house’s fame 」
They were picking a fight with the families of the young ladies who gathered at the party.
「 Naturally, Tendou-san’s father’s incompetent group is also making a move. Also, the daughters of the Yakuza. These girls will surely want to help Tendou-san 」
We expect a group that wants to save Tendou Otome.
That would be the daughters of Yakuza.
「 I don’t think that Tendou-san’s the only one with superior intelligence and leverage. Those girls will not let Tendou-san become the sacrifice and let you infiltrate on your own 」
「 So those were your sisters? 」
The daughters of Yakuza, just like Tendou Otome.
「 And the other one, are the people who come from Kansai as rear guard, knowing that Tendou Sadao’s useless anyway 」
「 Rear Guard? 」
「 The subordinates of Irokuchou Ichiro-san 」
Oh, it’s the people who will make a move on their own to cause a scandal using Tendou Otome’s actions.
