Michi’s apologizing, but her expression is subtle. Or should I say that she’s a girl lacking facial expressions? I
「 Let’s talk over there. We’ll get dizzy if we stay for too long 」
I stand up and lead the way to the door to the open air bath outside. It’s already pitch dark outside. Err. Oh, there’s a light switch. I flipped on the lights. The open-air bath is slightly elevated. On the other side is a bamboo fence covering the inside so the outside can’t see.
「 Oh, they’ve brought in some soil, so it’s hidden from the outside 」
I said. Misuzu looks in.
「 It’s an artificial hill, that’s very Japanese-like garden, an elegant taste 」
Saying that she cuddles beside me.
「 Oh, the night wind feels good. Danna-sama 」
Yeah, feeling the dry wind after the body’s flushed in hot water feels good.
「 Michi, come here too 」 「 Yes 」
Michi comes. There’s no warm water in the open-air bath tonight.
「 Miszu, take a seat over there 」
There’s a bamboo bench in front of us. People enter the outdoor bath for the wind. I lay down a towel and invite the two.
「 But, Danna-sama, only two can sit here 」 「 It’s fine. Misuzu, you’re next to me, and Michi will be on my knees. 」
I sit down.
「 Yes, Danna-sama. Come too Michi 」
Misuzu’s naked. The bench is small. Her flushed skin touches mine. Misuzu’s breast is touching my arm.
「 Excuse me 」
Michi also sits on my knees carefully. This 15-year-old battle girl is also naked.
「 It’s okay, sit a bit closer 」
I hug Michi from behind. Girl’s skin is plump and filled with elasticity.
「 Michi 」
I hug Michi and whisper to her ears.
「 Yes. 」
The small girl grows smaller in my arms.
「 Look, the moon’s beautiful 」
Looking up at the sky, the silver moon appears.
「 Yes 」
Michi also looks up.
「 Uhm, Danna-sama 」
Misuzu talks to me, but…
「 Misuzu, look at the moon, let’s look up together 」
This small bamboo bench. Actually, this is one seater. The guests of this mansion had a lot of old men with good physique. In this small bench… Misuzu and I are sitting next to each other. I’m carrying Michi. The three of us are sticking our skin together, naked. We feel each other’s temperature. Michi has a higher temperature than Misuzu. The feeling of their skin is also different. Women aren’t the same.
「 Hauuuuu 」
Thus, the three of us looked up at the sky. Suddenly, Michi breathes out. Michi’s tension loosens up. Her body softens. Her heart too.
「 Is Edie hard to deal with? 」
「 That’s not the case 」
Michi answers while looking up at the moon.
「 It’s just that she keeps on feeling around my Qi 」
「 Edie always tries to feel around my Qi. She’s trying to understand my state of mind through my Qi 」
Oh, Michi and Edie can feel the Qi. Michi with Kudou style ancient martial arts. Edie learned it from her grandmother, assassination cults and assassination techniques have a connection.
「 Even if I talk my best in English, Edie always tries to peek through my heart, I’m not okay with that 」
So that’s how it is.
「 But, Edie doesn’t have any ill intent with it, right? That girl came to a land foreign to her, and she’s not that good at communicating with words. Michi, Mana-san, nor Ruriko’s English isn’t perfect either 」
「 I know that. I know that Edie doesn’t have any ill intent. Perhaps, that’s what Edie usually does. Just like how I was born to be an inheritor of ancient martial arts, Edie grew up educated as an assassin 」
As an assassin, she always read the Qi of people around her.
「 When Edie said that he likes Master, I know what she meant. Master doesn’t have any negative feelings towards Edie. Just like our family, I want Edie to be connected to us 」
「 Edie feels the warmth of loving as a family through Qi already 」 「 That’s right, Danna-sama is wonderful 」
Misuzu praises me.
「 No, even if you say that I’m doing all that’s normal to me 」
I feel embarrassed if you praise me like that.
「 I just treat Edie like it’s natural 」 「 That means accepting her as a family 」
「An ordinary man won’t do it that way. They’ll try to discriminate Edie just like us. No, before that, they’d be captivated by Edie’s ability and think about using her 」 「 If that ill intent crosses one’s mind, Edie will immediately sense it. Edie hates Miss Cordelia because her dark Qi, the evil thoughts of wanting to use Edie is strong 」
Michi says as she’s on top of my lap.
「 Yeah. But, that’s good. For now, Edie likes our place. She doesn’t have anywhere to go. Let her stay as long as she wants 」
Edie’s chased out by the assassination cult after her grandmother’s death. The new leader of the cult sold Edie to Miss Cordelia. But, Edie didn’t accept Miss Cordelia.
「 Kyouko-san took Edie from Miss Cordelia, she has someone to train with Qi like Michi. I think it’s a good thing for Edie to stay with us. She likes Mao-chan and Agnes too 」 「 I’m in trouble 」
「 Why, Michi? 」
Misuzu asks. Michi;
「 That is 」
Her mind and body stiffen again.
「 Michi, you dislike people peeping in your mind, don’t you? 」
「 M-Master! 」 「 You’re fundamentally a poker-face after all 」
Or should I say that she always looks pouting? Her true feelings aren’t entirely clear.
「 Because… 」
「 Michi, I think… 」
Misuzu tries to give her opinion to Michi, but…
「 No, wait, Misuzu 」
I stop Misuzu. I hug Michi’s body tight.
「 Are you that embarrassed? 」
Michi’s body trembled.
「 Embarrassed, Michi? 」
「 I’m embarrassed 」
Michi mutters in a small voice.
「 You’re embarrassed to have Edie see through your feelings, don’t you? 」 「 Yes 」
The small girl confesses.
「 Your feelings, that “like Danna-sama”? 」
Misuzu said. I smiled wryly
「 No, that’s wrong. Misuzu 」
I pat the hair of the naked girl on my lap.
「 Michi wants to be friends with Edie, right? 」
「 Looking from the side, Edie looks like she’s approaching Michi but. That’s not the case 」
I whisper to Michi’s ear.
「 Michi wants to be friends with Edie too, right? 」
「 Yes 」
She nods lightly.
「 She’s the first girl I could train together 」
I knew it
「 Michi’s been practicing Kudou style ancient martial arts under her grandfather’s care since she was a child 」
Thus, she’s become a martial arts beauty in her head.
「 You don’t have friends at school, right? 」 「 I don’t need friends. I am Misuzu-sama’s guard 」
「 If not for that status, I am not allowed to enroll to that school 」
Misuzu and Michi’s school is Japan’s best Ojou-sama school. Only daughters of big-shot in politics and business can enter. Michi goes to that school because she’s Misuzu’s guard. To protect her inside the school at the same time she goes in and out, it’s better if the guard is also a student of the same school.
「 But, there are other students like Michi, right? 」
Michi’s sister. Oh, what’s her name again? Ah, Haruka-san, right. That person should be in that school as Ruriko’s bodyguard. Usually, the third year Haruka-san and the second year Misuzu are paired. Then in the middle school, Michi should guard Ruriko who’s also the third year. It was the opposite because Misuzu wants Michi and hates Haruka-san. Then, Ruriko has Yoshiko-san, a third year who’s always beside her as an attendant, not a guard. Haruka-san didn’t do her bodyguard work properly and used Kouzuki security service to promote herself.
「 Why are you not friends with the bodyguard from a different house? 」
There should be a house that does the same thing as Kouzuki house.
「 It’s unknown whether the guards of other houses will become enemies or not 」
「 We can’t be close 」
Yeah, there’s that too.
「 Sometimes, some come to talk to me with an overly-familiar attitude. Those don’t aim for me but for Misuzu-sama 」
Kouzuki house is a noble among nobles after all. They want to get acquainted with Misuzu through Michi, her guard.
「 I can see through their ill intent 」
Oh, she can read other people’s Qi, so she gets further away from others.
「 To be honest, I yearn for Master, because Master has no ill will. To me, to Misuzu-sama 」
Michi turns to me.
「 That’s a first 」
「 Besides, Danna-sama erases the ill-will of others surrounding him. Dark Qi turn transparent 」
「 Kuromori-sama is the one spitting out the darkest Qi in this mansion 」
「 But, when she’s with Master, talking, the Black Qi disappears 」
I’m erasing Minaho-neesan’s ill will?
「 No, that’s not true? I don’t have that much of an influence 」 「 It’s true. It’s not just Kuromori-sama. Everyone else too, the older ladies often have a Black Qi. But, when they interact with the master, their ill will gradually go away 」
The elder? Minaho-neesa, Kyouko-san, Katsuko-nee, Nagisa, and Margo-san?
「 Danna-sama. I think Michi’s right 」
「 This is a brothel. There’s nothing strange for dark ill-intent to be drifting around the people. Furthermore, Kuromori-sama and others are doing a wicked act, which is the revenge 」
Dark Qi is a natural thing for them.
「 But, I didn’t do anything about it 」 「 Danna-sama, I’ve been watching in a different room. Danna-sama’s definitely the one person who changed Kuromori-sama’s dark and gruesome revenge 」
「 Michi, use your power to feel Qi, how does Danna-sama fare currently? 」
Misuzu asks Michi.
「 He’s exhausted, not his body but his mind 」
Is that what Michi feels about me?
「 Instead of worn out, I should say that he’s in pain 」 「 Yes, that’s right. Michi 」
「 Therefore, in reality; We feel sorry to have you consider about us like this 」
Michi trembles in my arms.
「 No, Michi, I 」 「 I feel miserable on my cowardice 」
Michi, are you crying?
「 It is as Master says. I wish to be close to Edie. But, I don’t know how 」
Her small body rises in temperature. Michi’s excited. I can tell as our skins are touching.
「 Therefore, you strongly advised Edie to have sex with Danna0sama 」
「 Yes, if Edie also becomes one of Master’s official woman, then she’ll be my sister. Once we’re sisters, there’s no need to hold back 」
Michi, you say that but…
「 That’s a bit wrong, Michi 」
「 Even among the family, you’re aggressively mingling with Mana, Ruriko, sisters younger than yourself 」
That’s right, she is…
「 You’re not talking to your elder sisters that much. Even Misuzu, you still call her Misuzu-sama, a manner of a subordinate 」 「 That’s 」 「 Furthermore, you speak so highly with the younger girls. Michi thought of her own elder sister as arrogant, right? 」 「 My sister was overbearing 」
Aaaaaah! That’s right. Michi’s sister, Haruka-san was definitely an arrogant person.
「 I get it, then Michi needs to fix from the foundation 」
The concept of elder sister and family is different for each. No, wait. Is it just Michi? Does every one of us think of the words sisters and family in the same meaning? I mean, is my view on the family the right one? Even I know that I grew up in a wrong family. I know that Misuzu and Ruriko, Kouzuki house is unique. Mana and Megu, they weren’t raised decently by Shirasaka house. Nei, her family, died when she was young and grew up with no relatives. Margo-san was ousted from an Indian settlement and experienced entering a facility. Minaho-neesan too, she’s abandoned by her real father, Kuromori Koichiro. Everyone doesn’t have a decent, no, I don’t know what exactly is decent though. They don’t know what an ordinary family is. I don’t know how were Katsuko-nee and Nagisa raised so I can’t say anything about that. Shou-oneesan and Rei-chan too, I should listen to their stories more. There’s still a lot of things we have to talk about.
「 Let’s talk about this with everyone. Let’s talk a lot. We can’t just assume to know it all 」
「 It’s my first time knowing Michi seeing Minaho-neesan and other’s Qi 」
People see and sense something entirely different for me. They judge. Ah. Edie too. She can also read people’s Qi.
「 I guess I might’ve looked down on Edie a bit 」
I thought that she’s just a noisy and eccentric girl, but She might’ve been making noise when she read people’s Qi. In any case, my family is also one who move strongly with their emotions.
「 Ah, I get it 」
Suddenly, Misuzu speaks.
「 You also thought Edie could be your little sister, right? 」
「 If she becomes Danna-sama’s woman 」 「 Yes, I’m a senior when it comes to being Master’s woman 」
「 What are you talking about, Edie’s a year older than Michi 」
That’s right, she’s on the same grade as I am.
「 Edie is on the same year a s me 」
「 That’s in America, isn’t it? The division of years is different on both 」
「 In Japan, April is the new school year, but in America, it’s September 」
Oh, in an American school, Michi and Edie would be on the same school year?
「 But, that’s what Edie says, therefore, I 」
If they’re in the same school, she won’t have to treat her as an elder sister but think of her as a younger sister? In Michi’s case, if she’s a little sister, then she can talk freely. But, Michi’s attitude to younger sisters is arrogant. She’s been dealing with Edie with that kind of high attitude.
「 Above all, I’m much better at reading Qi 」
Huh? Oh, I see. That’s the whole cause. Michi’s foundation is a fighter. So she measures people through their skills. Oh, I see. I get it, I know it now.
「 No, that’s not okay. Michi. This is Japan so we’ll do it the Japanese way. Edie’s much older than Michi, so you have to respect her 」
Okay. I get it all now.
「 B-But, Master! 」 「 Or should I say that it’s impossible for Michi to get along with Edie with that attitude now 」
I hug Michi and say.
「 You just assumed that Edie’s skills are inferior that’s why you take that attitude. You think that you can see through Edie and that she can’t see your heart, so you misunderstood that it’s okay to look down on her! I knew it, yo look down on Edie too much 」 「 I-I 」
「 Michi, you think that you surpass Edie in skills, so you assume everything, it’s turned strange. If she turned it the other way around, what would you do? 」
「 Turn it the other way around 」 「 If ever Edie got better in reading minds of people than you. It’s troublesome to tell us, so she just shows it in expression, but in reality, Edie can see everything, what would you do? 」
The possibility is strong. Edie’s observation of other people’s Qi is sharp like a beast. On the other hand, if she feels that she could rest easy, she relaxes so much you’d be surprised. Misunderstanding that she’s just a dull person… In reality, she’s as sharp and more sensible than Michi.
「 Think about it again 」 「 Agugugu 」
Michi’s complexion is getting worse.
「 If ever that was the case, then I think I may have been terribly rude to her 」
「 Even if it isn’t, you were still rude! You looked down on Edie too much. Edie can also see Michi’s Qi 」
「 Edie knows it all, she knows that Michi actually wants to be friends with Edie deep inside your heart. And yet, for some reason, you take such a high-handed attitude on Edie, she’s confused, angry 「 Auu! 」
Michi suddenly realizes.
「 W-What should I do? 」
I rub Michi’s back.
「 Calm down. For now, you have no choice but to apologize. Apologize for your lousy attitude and try asking to be friends with her again 」 「 But 」 「 Edie can read Qi. She’ll know that Michi’s feelings aren’t a lie 」
「 But, I don’t know what exactly friends are 」
That’s why she tries to be in a better position, becoming that arrogant elder sister.
「 No, I think Edie’s the same 」
「 She’s born from the assassination cult, she’s unique, and yet she learned a special technique from her grandmother, didn’t she? Then, she has been driven away from the cult 」
She’s learned a too strong of a skill.
「 Michi’s the same with Kudou style ancient martial arts. Edie-san too shouldn’t have friends of the same age 」
Michi listens to me silently.
「 Michi’s the same. That’s why, why don’t you two talk about things on what friends are? There’s no right or wrong in friendships 」
「 It’s the same for family relationships. 」
「 We try various things to look for the best form, so it’s okay 」
Misuzu clings to me.
「 I love you! I love you so much! 」
「 Michi, what about you? 」
「 Kuuu, I love too! I love Master!! 」
「 It is as Master says, I’ll apologize to Edie, I’ll say I’m sorry for looking down on her, then. I’ll talk to Edie, I’ll ask her to be my friend 」
「 Yeah, I think that’s great 」
Misuzu stands up from the bench. Then, she presses her hand on the rock on the open air bath and turns her ass to me.
「 Danna-sama, please punish me 」
「 Nei-oneesama said it. This is a perfect place for punishment 」
Yeah, she did, but
「 Nei-oneesama thinks that I should be receiving punishment, not Michi 」 「 Misuzu-sama? 」
「 I’m always treating Michi as my vassal. Therefore, Michi doesn’t mingle with other members of the family, that’s why she looked down on Edie 」 「 That’s because I’m Misuzu-sama’s bodyguard! 」 「 That doesn’t matter!! 」
「 If this goes on, I can’t say that I’m Michi’s elder sister 」
「 I will be Michi’s Onee-san. I want to be a proper Onee-san, no, I have to! 」
「 If not, I feel sorry for Danna-sama! 」 「 No, Misuzu, I’m… 」 「 I am Danna-sama’s woman! That’s why I have to be a good sister to my little sisters 」
Misuzu repents strongly.
「 I’m sorry, Michi. I’m such an incompetent sister 」 「 No, I. This blunder is all my fault 」
Michi stands on my lap and puts her hand next to Misuzu. She turns her butt towards me.
「 Please punish me!! 」
Haa. I have no choice.
「 It’s just one hit 」
I slap Misuzu’s ass with all my strength.
「 Hyaahiiiiiii!!! 」
Following, Michi’s ass too.
「 Hamuuuuu!! 」
The two white butts trace a red palm.
「 That’s good enough 」
The two look at each other and hugged.
「 Michi 」 「 Misuzu-sama 」
Misuzu pokes Michi’s nose.
「 Misuzu-oneesama 」 「 That’s 」 「 Danna-sama will punish me more until you call me as such 」
Saying that Misuzu turns her ass to me.
「 Danna-sama, please 」
「 W-Wait, M-Misuzu-oneesama!! 」
Michi speaks embarrassed
「 Thank you, Michi 」
Misuzu hugs Michi once again. Then she kissed Michi’s lips.
「 Huh? 」
This time, I’m the one surprised.
「 It’s up to us on how the family will shape up 」
Misuzu looks at me
「 I also have lesbian tendencies, but Danna-sama will be the only man in my life. But, if Danna-sama allows, I want to make love with Michi 」
Oh, they plan to unleash everything Then it can’t be helped.
「 Yeah. I think it’s okay if it’s Michi 」
Misuzu smiles to Michi.
「 You’re my little sister now so I’ll embrace you a lot, Michi 」
「 M-Me too, Misuzu-oneesama 」
That’s right, Michi yearns for Misuzu from the start.
「 But, we won’t do it with just the two of us. We’re both Danna-sama’s women so we’ll only do it in front of Danna-sama. Then, let’s serve Danna-sama together 」 「 Yes!!! 」
