Before I could answer Megu, Minaho-neesan speaks in a low tone.
「 Megumi, he’s doing his job as the man of Kuromori house right now 」
That’s right, this is my job.
Something I should do.
「 But 」
Megu usually would be convinced with what Minaho-neesan says.
However, Megu today is extremely unstable.
「 Megumi, go back to Yamamine-san’s house 」
Minaho-neesan looked at Megu’s face and made an instant decision.
「 I knew it, you’re just an ordinary child. You cannot stay in Kuromori house 」
「 M-Minaho-san?! 」
「 Wait. Isn’t it too early to decide, Minaho-neesan? 」
I said, however,
「 No, I’ve been watching Megumi ever since yesterday. She can’t accept the situation from yesterday, and even today, it’s impossible for her to stay in Kuromori house 」
「 It can’t be helped, Megumi. We’re different from you. We’re not ordinary people. If you live with us for longer, then your heart will break someday 」
「 Sorry but I agree with that 」
「 Megu-chan, I think that it’s impossible for you to become Yo-chan’s wife 」
「 W-Why are you saying that?! Nei-oneesan?! 」
Megu looks at Nei with a confused face.
「 Megu-chan, you want to have an ordinary family with just you and Yo-chan, but Yo-chan’s a man of Kuromori house. You can’t monopolize him. It’s a problem for us. Mii-chan, Ruri-chan, Katsu-nee, Nagisa-san, Mao-chan, and everyone 」
「 I-I 」
「 I know that. I understand it. That’s why I’ve been enduring for the past four months and accepted it all 」
「 Look? You’re enduring it. That’s how you think of it 」
Nei smiles wryly.
「 You think of yourself as Yo-chan’s lawful wife, so you have to endure and accept it, that what you do is what completes the family 」
「 I’m Yoshi-kun’s wife! 」
「 Yeah. Should’ve closed down that path, or perhaps should I say that we should’ve fixed this earlier. No, that’s not it, back then, if we didn’t treat Megu-chan as Yo-chan’s lawful wife, then Megu-chan won’t be able to bear it. To think that we have someone this dark of a character in the family 」
「 Megumi, you were treated as his lawful wife because you share the most “daily life” with him 」
「 We needed a camouflage, which is the engagement with you, to keep his life in high school safe 」
「 Minaho-san, I’m not a camouflage! I’m taking this seriously! 」
「 I wonder? I don’t see you loving him that seriously however 」
Minaho-neesan’s being harsh.
「 All you do is “want to believe that you love him,” don’t you? 」
「 That is why you keep pressing your love on him selfishly. You don’t care about his feelings or situation at all 」
「 I do! 」
「 If you really do, then you wouldn’t be doing this! 」
「 Megu-chan is always so spoiled that you only keep on shouting what you want from Yo-chan 」
「 I-I’m also holding back. I’ve been holding it all this time! 」
Nei and Megu’s conversation is a matter of feelings so it will be a parallel line no matter how long they go.
「 Indeed. Then, you don’t have to hold it anymore, get out of my house, Megumi 」
「 I don’t mind if you resent me forever. Go back to Yamamine-san’s house 」
Megu looks at Minaho-neesan with a teary face.
「 Forget all about us as well. Live on a normal life 」
「 Forget about him, go on a different place, different school, fall in love like an ordinary person. Then, take on an average marriage, build an ordinary home, and live ordinarily. I’ll back you up financially. I’d like to be helpful to Yamamine-san’s work, your school transfer, university, and employment. But, bring your bags out of my house and never come to the mansion again. Don’t see him ever again 」
「 That’s! 」
Megu shows an expression of despair.
「 Why?! This is too much! I’ve been doing my best for the past four months. All to be Yoshi-kun’s wife, to be the housewife of this family!
「 You’re not the only one doing your best 」
「 Everyone does. All of us want to become a single family. It’s not just Megu-chan, Katsu-nee is still the housewife of the family, Ruri-chan, Mana-chan are helping out Katsu-nee even more than Megu-chan 」
「 That’s 」
「 You misunderstand that you’re special because you were titled Yo-chan’s lawful wife, but that’s just your selfish recognition. Megu-chan is treated as the legal wife, but you’re not even one 」
「 I’m the wife! 」
「 No! Yo-chan loves all of his women equally. Our family’s established with that given in mind! If Megu-chan’s offered a special position, then it would collapse! Do you not get it?! 」
「 But! But! But! I! 」
It won’t be nice if this goes on.
I understand why Minaho-neesan and Nei are playing the “hated role,” but,
It would only leave grudges later.
「 I won’t accept this, Minaho-neesan 」
「 Megu won’t return to Yamamine house. Megu is my woman. No, Megu is “also my woman” 」
I look at Megu.
Megu looks at me, trembling.
「 I can’t think of letting Megu go on a place I don’t know and fall in love with a man and get married. Megu will stay by my side. She’ll bear my child. That’s what I decided on, and it’s absolute 」
「 Yoshi-kun? 」
「 Megu’s already my woman and my family 」
I won’t let her go even if I die.
「 Yoshi-kun. I, do you need me? 」
Megu asks me.
「 It’s not about that, is it?! We’re family! 」
Megu looks at me with teary eyes.
「 We’re family, so it’s natural for us to be together 」
I speak clearly.
「 It has nothing to do with necessity, or merits, is there? We’re already a family. Swallow up all the good and bad things! 」
I look at Minaho-neesan and Nei.
「 You two as well. It’s strange to see you kick out Megu from the family because she’s a negative influence! Megu is also family. You have to accept her no matter what! 」
「 Well, she’s needed, right? Agnes needs a child of the same age as her, I thought that she’s the best suited for that role 」
I look at Luna-san.
「 You didn’t want Luna-san to become your sex slave to enjoy her body? 」
「 Huh? Well, either way, I’m going to do all three of them, right? That’s been the story since earlier, I still haven’t decided whether Tsukiko-san and Yomiko-san could become prostitutes unless I do them once or twice 」
It’s already decided that I’ll have sex with the three of them.
「 Yes, you need to make clear lines on what’s going on for both your family and not 」
Minaho-neesan looks at Megu.
「 Aren’t you glad, Megumi? He’s adding this child to the family 」
「 If you recognize Megumi as a family then I won’t tell her to leave anymore. Do what you want. What about you, Nei? 」
「 Yeah. If Yo-chan feels that way, then I can’t do anything 」
Minaho-neesan and Nei pass the ball to me.
「 Megu 」
I call Megu.
「 I understand, Yoshi-kun 」
Megu mutters in a harsh tone.
「 Yoshi-kun thinks of me as a family and loves me as a family, but 」
「 That means that you don’t love me? 」
I don’t get it.
「 Megumi-san, that’s audacity. You’re being conceited! 」
Misuzu who’s been silent all this time speaks up.
「 To think that you want Danna-sama to love you the same as much as you do? You’re being too arrogant! 」
「 I’m also desperate to receive Danna-sama’s love every day! It’s not just me, everyone feels the same! They want to always be in contact with Danna-sama! 」
What’s going on?
「 We all want a family, so Onii-chan accepted us as his 」
「 There’s not much space for love. We have sex before love, our family’s love is tied up that way 」
「 I don’t mind it. I don’t understand love, yet I’m satisfied with my current relationship with Onii-sama 」
「 I mean, isn’t it only Megu-chan and Mii-chan who wants to receive more love from Yo-chan even after becoming his woman, his family? 」
「 I am Master’s sex slave, so I don’t think of anything but be played with 」
「 I mean, you all are over-concerned 」
Edie speaks casually.
「 You see, I like Darling, I love him. I know that Darling likes and loves me too. That’s why I’m happy 」
She looked around at everyone in the room.
「 Compared to my past, I’m endlessly happy now. That’s why I’m satisfied. I have a family, Darling, the food’s delicious, and also, sex is fun. Exciting stuff happens one after another. I don’t get why is everyone dissatisfied 」
「 Satisfied with one’s life, I see 」
「 Indeed, it’s not that I don’t understand Megumi-san’s feelings, but isn’t that a luxurious problem? 」
She smiled and looked at me.
「 He’s really a good man. He never lies, he’s always doing his best. He’s still serious with us. He never cut corners. His first thought is to make everyone happy. I also love him 」
Then, she talks to Megu.
「 That is why I don’t want to impose something on him. After all, isn’t he always moving so desperately? I don’t want to increase his burden by saying something unnecessary 」
「 Was calling myself Yoshi-kun’s wife unnecessary? 」
「 That’s obvious. Megumi-san. Isn’t it strange to compel him to admit anything just because you’re striving for it? 」
「 But, I 」
「 How about you change the way you think for a moment? 」
Shou-neechan smiles at Megu.
「 How about you just think that you’re his wife as you please, just inside your mind. You only think of it, don’t speak of it. Don’t ask him. Doing that would solve the problem by 90% 」
「 That’s right, I think he’s my Darling 」
「 Me too, he’s my Danna-sama 」
Edie and Misuzu said.
「 In my mind, Master is…No, I can’t speak of it here 」
Michi, what do you think of me? Hey?!
「 Oh, I see, that’s right 」
Mana suddenly speaks.
「 I always call Onii-chan “Onii-chan,” but 」
She looks at me.
「 When I look at Onii-chan, all I could think of is sex. I must have Onii-chan do it with me or else I would have no qualifications to live 」
I see. Mana threw away Shirasaka Maika.
She was accepted to the family by becoming my sex slave.
Therefore Mana has an intense fear of being abandoned when I lose interest in her body.
That is why she needs to have sex with me every day to keep her mental state healthy.
「 That’s okay, you are Master’s sex slave after all 」
Michi said calmly.
「 I’m the same, we’re both born in this world to have Master embrace us. Let’s work together to receive Master’s love 」
「 Michi-oneechan 」
「 Mana-san, I don’t know why you always feel in pain, however, isn’t it a lot of fun for us to have Onii-sama rape us? 」
「 Therefore, please don’t carry such heavy emotions, and just enjoy Onii-sama’s embrace. There’s nothing as exciting and pleasant as that. I also feel happiness every day from being Onii-sama’s sex slave 」
「 Ruriko-oneechan 」
「 Yeah, Mana-chan’s thinking too much. You’re our little sister. You’re Yoshida Mana, don’t fall back to Shirasaka Maika 」
「 Mana’s my sex slave. You don’t have to worry about anything. All you have to think about is becoming more beautiful and becoming a supermodel. It’s also my dream to see my sex slave become a supermodel 」
「 T-Thanks, Onii-chan 」
「 If you are feeling worried then let’s have sex anytime, anywhere, just like usual. I won’t abandon Mana. Trust me a bit more 」
「 Un got it. I understand. Onii-chan 」
Although, knowing it with one’s mind is different from knowing it with one’s body.
Though she says that she understands, I need to have sex with her still.
Else, Mana’s anxiety won’t go away.
「 Luan-san, as said earlier, Michi, Mana-san, and I are all Onii-sama’s formal sex slaves 」
Ruriko talks to Takakura Luna.
「 It’s still unknown whether you’ll be accepted in our family or not, but we welcome you as a sex slave. Your first time might hurt physically, but it will become fun soon enough. Becoming Onii-sama’s slave is pleasant」
「 No, it should be painful. That’s the pleasure 」
Michi speaks with a satisfied look.
「 Mana, look after her as well, you’re the older one after all 」
「 Okay 」
Mana looks a Luna-san.
「 Best regards, Luna-san. Mana will teach you a lot about sex! 」
Luan-san doesn’t respond.
「 Oh, sorry, Mana. Let Agnes do that instead 」
「 Huh? Why? 」
「 Agnes doesn’t know a lot about the world yet. She still has to catch up in studies, right? 」
She’s been trapped in the basement for a long time, so she’s only taught about sex.
「 Therefore, Luna-san will teach Agnes in studies, and in exchange, Agnes will teach Luna-sama bout sex 」
I explain my plan.
「 Agnes needs to have friends of the same age right now, but if it’s an ordinary child, it might cause Agnes inferiority complex thinking that “she’s falling behind when it comes to common sense,” right? But if it’s Luna-san, she lacks knowledge about sex, so even if she’s better in studies, Agnes feels that she can teach her about sex, right? I think that way of teaching is better for Agnes 」
「 I see. That’s definitely a win-win situation 」
「 Then I’ll stay as support. Making sure the two become good friends 」
「 Yeah, thanks Mana 」
Looking at our conversation,
「 Look, Megumi-san, he’s like that. He puts himself second and always thinks of the family first 」
Shou-neechan tells Megu.
「 That’s why it’s hard to make him fall in love. Love is not established unless one gives priority to their feelings. He’s not really good at that 」
「 I 」
Megu feels down.
「 In the end, I’ve been only venting out all my emotions to Yoshi-kun, just being spoiled 」
「 That’s right, but worry not, he also thinks about Megumi-san in his mind. He also loves you. As a family, and his woman 」
「 Yoshi-kun 」
「 Anyway, I won’t let go Megu even if I die. Stay by my side. Don’t go anywhere. I won’t give you to any other guy 」
「 Yes, Yoshi-kun 」
「 I can’t afford to think only of Megu, sorry about that, but, I live to protect this family. Please agree to that. No, you must 」
「 Yes 」
I need to have sex with Megu later.
Words aren’t enough.
There’s so many who aren’t convinced unless they understand it with their body.
「 Minaho-san, I’ve been thinking of it since before, but 」
Shou-neechan talks to Minaho-neesan.
「 I think that the cause of this problem isn’t just Megumi-san but also how Minaho-san treated Megumi-san earlier 」
「 What do you mean? 」
「 Minaho-san, you’re extreme when it comes to Megumi-san. You keep distance when it comes to Mana-san and the other girls, and yet, you’re either too kind or too strict to Megumi-san 」
「 I wonder? 」
Shou-neechan points out. Minaho-neesan’s puzzled.
「 Yes. You let your emotions expose itself only with Megumi-san 」
Megu is the daughter of Keiko-san, she took care of Minaho-neesan when she became a prostitute.
Minaho-neesan knows Megu since her birth.
「 I understand that you take Megumi-san dearly, however, if you are being both affectionate and not, Megumi-san will be confused. In the first place, it was Minaho-san who has given Megumi-san preferential treatment 」
「 I 」
That’s right, Minaho-neesan was the one who recommended Megu to become my lawful wife.
That’s why Megu had the wrong idea.
She had Minaho-neesan’s backing after all.
「 I express this as someone in the family who’s age is closed to Minaho-san but, Minaho-san, you never pass fair judgment on all of the family. No, you don’t need to be fair. Minaho-san is also human, you can have your likes and dislikes, and people who you have a hard time dealing with. However, please don’t think that you’re at the summit of the family and look down on everyone equally. Reality isn’t like that 」
Minaho-neesan calls Katsuko-nee, Nagisa, Margo-san, Nei, Agnes, Megu, and me without a suffix in our names.
In short, the members of Kuromori, with Agnes and Megu included.
She doesn’t add “-chan” on other girls.
She calls the girls from Kouzuki house with “-san.”
Even Michi and Mana whoa re both in middle school are called “Michi-san,” and “Mana-san.”
In short, there’s a difference. She’s making a wall in her heart.
「 Minaho-san, right now, you’re thinking that Megumi-san should lose to Misuzu-san and others, that’s why you were doping it a bit. Isn’t that why you are talking about the lawful wife and such? 」
「 That might be the case 」
「 but, it’s for the person themselves to collide with each other and find out who wins and who loses. In the first place, this is a family. It’s okay to lose. It won’t break one out of the family, in ten or twenty years, the situation may reverse itself 」
「 I mean, I’m losing since I can’t live together with Danna-sama 」
「 Yes, now that I think of it, Grandfather entrusting only Ruriko to the mansion is his way of saying that I should work harder 」
Misuzu’s doing her best.
「 I feel sad that I’m the only one living apart from Danna-sama after all 」
Oh, that’s why she always call whenever she pees at morning and night.
「 I needed to be independent from Yoshiko-sama. Also, I’m learning to find a place to live in by staying inside Kuromori-sama’s mansion 」
That’s right, Ruriko started doing housework as soon as she came to the mansion.
Even now, she’s helping out Katsuko-nee in housework together with Mana.
Actually, living in the mansion where nobody depends on Kouzuki house means,
Ruriko’s on the away side.
And yet,. She doesn’t show any trouble in her face, she keeps her cheerfulness and blends in with everyone.
「 Yeah, if Ruri-chan didn’t come to the mansion then Megu-chan would’ve taken it all already 」
「 Just like Minaho-oneechan, I’ve been spoiling Megu-chan too much or too harsh with her. As expected, we’re giving her special treatment. Megu-chan can give Yo-chan that sweet high school life which I can never do. I think that’s how I felt 」
「 Therefore, I’ve always been too sweet and yet when I think that things are going badly, I’ve been a bit too harsh, sorry 」
She bows her head to Megu.
「 Mana-chan as well, you know Megu-chan since long ago so you can’t speak strongly. Katsu-nee had trauma from her high-school life. For real, Ruri-chan’s existence is the brake 」
If Ruriko wasn’t in the mansion.
Megu would be indeed recognized as the lawful wife.
「 Agnes also had a big part, she’s quite strong 」
Even when I’m talking to other girls, when Agnes comes and say “Papa, I want to have sex,” then I’ll prioritize her.
Agnes’ mental state is that much of a problem.
「 Yeah, if not for that, Megu-oneechan would’ve been the queen of the mansion already 」
「 But once that happens, everything will collapse soon enough 」
「 That would mean, Kouzuki house’s Misuzu, Shou-neechan, and Rei-chan going in at full force 」
Misuzu and the gang would try to dethrone Megu from her Queen status.
When that happens, it would be a harsh civil war.
We’ll lose Jii-chan’s faith, and the family will fall apart.
「 That’s why it’s nice that we have the opportunity to discuss this at this stage 」
There’s still a mountain pile of problems.
Such problems can’t be fixed by just discussing.
Even if we reach an understanding, if the root of the problem still remains then nothing will change.
They can say that they agree with their mouth, but their frustration overflows.
We need to deal with it with both words and actions even if it takes a long time.
I’m glad that both sides are able to recognize that there’s a problem.
With that, they can live together while paying attention to the problems.
「 Sure, you all are friendly and happy, but 」
Takakura Yomiko speaks suddenly.
「 How long do I have to do this?! 」
Takakura Yomiko’s skirt is still flipped up, her panties are exposed.
「 On top of making me do this humiliating appearance, I was just ignored, I can’t believe this! You all are insolent!! 」
