「 No way. The real thing can’t be brought to parties after all 」
「 Yes, if you buy the real thing at a first-class jewelry shop, they add elaborate dummies together with it. 」
「 You use the dummies when attending parties. The genuine ones only have meaning in ownership 」
Is that so?
「 Well, in my case, I only have the dummies 」
「 But, this is well done 」
Ruriko says as she looks at the pendant.
「 Well, of course, this is a work of a first-class craftsman who makes the genuine articles. It’s just a stone, a dummy artificial jewel. But you see, even artificial, Ruby and Sapphire don’t differ that much. Unless you’re an expert, you shouldn’t be able to distinguish from a distant perspective 」
Katsuko-nee said and laughed.
「 How much is the difference between an artificial jewel and a natural jewel? 」
Megu asks Katsuko-nee. I knew it, girls are interested in jewelry.
If this were jewels from Misuzu or Ruriko’s collection, then her insecurity will show up, but.
It’s Katsuko-nee, furthermore, since she informs that it’s not genuine, a dummy, Megu accepts it without problems.
「 Let’s see, at worse, it costs 1000 times more 」
If an artificial ruby gem costs 10,000 yen, the natural rock would cost 10 million.
「 Danna-sama, please put it on us 」
Misuzu turns her back on me and exposes her thin neck.
「 Okay 」
I take the blue pendant and put it on Misuzu’s neck.
「 Dear, do you know how to put on the clasp? 」
「 Yeah, like this? 」
「 Yes, good 」
Next is Ruriko.
「 Please 」
I put on the red jewel pendant on Ruriko.
Girl’s neck gets you throbbing.
I fix the pendant’s clasp while trying not to touch Ruriko’s skin.
「 How is it? 」
The two stand next to me once again.
「 Yes, that’s very beautiful 」
Yeah, their necks have a red and blue jewel shining, their gorgeousness increased a thousand times.
「 Everyone, please don’t think that this is a dummy jewel 」
I also agree with Nagisa.
Nobody would think that the ladies of Kouzuki house would wear fake jewels.
「 Speaking of dummies, Dear, put this on 」
Katsuko-nee takes out a wristwatch and attaches it to my arm.
It’s an analog type rough watch.
「 What’s this, Rolex? 」
I try to say the brand I know.
「 I won’t hand you such cheap items 」
Katsuko-nee smiles wryly.
「 However, only the exterior is genuine, the inside is a dummy. It’s light, isn’t it? Authentic mechanical watches should be heavier 」
Indeed, it’s lighter than it looks.
「 The inside contains quartz clock movement made in Japan. Then, the space inside the watch is entirely empty. Then, that watch incorporates another device in the empty space 」
「 If anything happens, push the crown, and then, the GPS will tell us your location 」
Is it a transmitter?
「 Well, I don’t think something will happen that would worry us though. Bring this just in case. Okay? 」
「 Okay, now the three are prepared 」
「 Wait, Katsuko-nee 」
I look at Michi.
「 Michi, get in the line too, let’s check the balance of us four this time 」
I tell Katsuko-nee and Nagisa.
「 Misuzu and Ruriko’s escort is me. Then, Michi is our bodyguard, so we’re a group of four 」
「 Master! 」
Michi comes in front.
「 Thank you very much 」
「 Don’t mind it, get in line 」
「 Yes! 」
Misuzu wears white on black, then gold and blue accessories.
Ruriko wears black on white, gold and red accessories.
I’m wearing a charcoal gray suit and a plain gold necktie, and brown shoes.
Then, Michi’s wearing a black dress and gold accessories.
「 Looking at this, Michi-chan needs a different color too 」
「 No, I’m a bodyguard, so I can’t stand out 」
Michi said, but.
「 I think if we don’t make it too flashy then it’s okay 」
Katsuko-nee peeks into the accessory case she brought.
「 What about this one? 」
Saying that she takes out a brooch with a yellow stone.
「 Oh, it’s amber. That looks good 」
「 Amba? 」
「 Amber 」
I asked. Katsuko-nee replied smiling.
The amber jewelry is placed on Michi’s neck.
「 Yes, that looks good. Let’s have this. Dear, put it on 」
Katsuko-nee hands it to me.
「 Okay, don’t move, Michi 」
I fasten the brooch on the place Katsuko-nee told me to.
「 My, you look lovely Michi-pon 」
「 Yes, you look beautiful 」
「 Yes, yellow suits you well 」
Megu also smiled.
「 Oh my, Michi-chan’s the only one who got the genuine stone 」
Misuzu and Ruriko have artificial jewels. Michi has a natural gem.
「 T-That’s not okay! 」
「 It’s okay, amber is cheaper than other gems. It’s just a solidified sap of a pine tree 」
Is that so?
「 I’m Blue, Ruri’s red so Michi-pon can be yellow! 」
