Chapter 848. High life / Girls
「 Huh, why do that? 」
I asked Edie whisperingly.
「 If they know about the weakness of shrine maidens, then the Yakuza will loosen up their caution against them 」
Oh, there were multiple victims on Tsukiko’s mother’s frenzy, and so…
The Kansai Yakuza fear the Takakura shrine maidens.
「 They say that the cornered mouse bites. It’s better not to think much about it 」
You even learned that line? What a genius blonde-haired brown-skinned American beauty.
「 The second objective is to show that we will not let Kyouko Messer use the shrine maidens 」
The Yakuza doesn’t like Kyouko-san and other foreign forces coming to the underground society of Japan.
Besides, if we were to give our Takakura shrine maidens to Kyouko-san, they’d oppose it harshly.
Before they raised their suspicions, we show Kyouko-san confronting Yomi and Luna.
「 This becomes a proof that the Miko power is under Kouzuki house’s care, and that also guarantees that Kouzuki house won’t sell out 」
Jii-chan is the head of the noble among noble families, he holds influence over various organizations.
Therefore, Kouzuki house and the Kouzuki group acts for what’s best in the country’s interest.
They could have some business with Kyouko-san and other foreign organizations, but they’ll never sell the Takakura shrine maidens.
Instead, they’ll see it as a countermeasure against Kyouko-san.
「 The Kansai Yakuza used the Miko power for nothing good. They should be reflecting on it. Therefore, if we show that Kouzuki house is using the Miko power for the benefit of the country, some of them will stop their hostilities 」
Kyouko-san’s cutting herself in between the confrontation of Kouzuki house and Kansai Yakuza, and that splits the Kansai Yakuza in half.
Those who want to continue fighting us, and those who wish to reconcile with Kouzuki house to repel the foreign organizations.
「 And when that happens, they’ll split, and we can take down those who are against the Kouzuki house 」
If they’re split, it becomes easier.
「 That’s not it, if the enemy is split into two, we can leave them alone 」
「 What’s left is to have the two fight each other and collapse 」
「 And then we can just crush down the remains. Either way, they’d be exhausted from fighting each other, that makes it easy 」
But, well, that happens.
「 By the way, did you notice it, Darling? 」
「 The ladies with their bodyguards are split into three groups 」
Edie said. I looked around.
「 The first group are those making a fuss by gathering around Rei-chan and Margo along with their masters 」
Oh, as usual, the girls flock at Rei-chan and Margo-san.
They’re mostly ladies from noble families, but their eyes are sparkling to see a strong “onee-sama,” even though they’re bodyguards.
「 The second group are those who protect their masters who don’t want to go to Rei-chan 」
Yeah, not all of them are fangirls.
Some of them are on the table with others, or alone, taking a break.
Then there’s Kanou Sakurako-san, Torii Mariko-san, and the Kurama sisters in Misuzu and Ruriko’s table.
Behind them are their bodyguards.
Well, that’s their job, and so it’s a usual scene.
「 The third group are those who aren’t with their masters and is watching around from a distance 」
Oh, there is.
Yeah, bodyguards are hiding at the edge of the courtyard, or the walls of the mansion.
I see. Some of the young ladies gathered around Rei-chan don’t have their guards with them.
There’s also one young lady sitting down on the table by herself.
That means her bodyguard left her and went to the wall?
「 There’s nothing strange about it. With the space in this courtyard, the bodyguards don’t need to be with their masters at all time 」
Yeah, usually, bodyguards have to be with their Masters all the time.
But, this is the main mansion of Kouzuki house, and Rei-chan’s also here.
Kyouko-san just left, and so there are no threats.
There’s no need for them to stick tightly.
「 But, those who are apart from their masters have something in their mind 」
「 Now, then, let’s resume our lecture! 」
Shou-neechan smiled and speaks loudly.
「 Everyone, please return to your tables. 」
Rei-chan tells the ladies around her.
「 Now then, I will be heading my way 」
Margo-san stands up.
「 Eeeeh? You’re going already? 」
「 I want to talk more 」
「 Me too! 」
Some of the young ladies have become fangirls of Margo-san.
「 You still have your garden party after the lecture, right? I’ll come again by then 」
「 Kyaa~ I’ll be waiting! 」
「 I will be waiting, Margo-oneesama! 」
「 I prefer Reika-oneesama! 」
「 Me too! Me too! 」
It’s an all-girls’ school, this is how it is.
「 Everyone, please return to your seats, or the lecture won’t start. If that happens, you won’t have time to chat 」
Shou-neechan speaks like a school teacher.
「 Okay~ 」
The young ladies return to their seats.
「 Then, see you later 」
Margo-san said and heads back to the mansion.
Oh, right, I should do that too.
I don’t need to listen to the lecture about the safety of the young ladies.
I returned to Misuzu’s table, then…
「 I’m going to be away for a while 」
I told Misuzu.
「 I’m worried about Yomi and Luna 」
Kyouko-san and Miss Cordelia did throw them around.
Nobody will pay attention if I move out at this timing.
「 I understand, Danna-sama 」
「 Onii-sama, please return before the lecture ends 」
Ruriko says with a smile.
「 Then, I’ll excuse myself for now 」
I greeted Kanou-san, Torii-san, and the Kurama sisters and left the table.
Torii-san greeted me off with a smile.
Kurama sisters greeted with an anxious face.
But, Kanou-san ignores me.
I guess this group is also a variety.
By the way, the bodyguards ignore me.
Shie-san, Adelheid-san, Anjou Mitama and Kinuka.
「 Michi, look after them 」
I asked Michi.
Michi bows her head.
「 I’ll come with you 」
「 After all, I’m Kuromori Kou’s bodyguard 」
Oh, so that’s her setting. I guess it can’t be helped.
We were still talking.
「 Yeah, come with me 」
「 Yessir! 」
We head inside the mansion.
◇ ◇ ◇
「 Uuuu, I feel my head spinning 」
Yomi and Luna are lying down on the sofa of the reception room.
「 Are you two okay? 」
「 Sensei, hug 」
「 Sure 」
I embraced Yomi.
「 There, there, Yomi 」
「 Uuu, that was scary 」
I can feel Yomi’s huge breasts on my chest.
「 Nii-san, me too 」
This time, it’s Luna.
「 Yomi, Luna’s turn 」
「 Okay 」
Yomi kisses me in the lips.
「 Luna 」
「 Nii-san! 」
Luna embraced me tightly and asked for a kiss.
She shoves in her tongue in my mouth.
「 Luna was scared too 」
I pat her small back.
「 I mean, those people had total darkness in their hearts 」
「 That’s right, it felt like I’m getting sucked inside a black hole 」
The ability to read minds is a double-edged sword.
These two just experienced the horror of looking into Kyouko-san’s mind.
「 Nii-san, kiss me more 」
「 Yomi too 」
I embraced Yomi and Luna in both hands and kissed them again and again.
「 Haaaaa, I feel calmer 」
「 Yes, Sensei’s scent makes me feel at ease 」
Yomi’s sniffing my nape.
If it an ease up their fear, then I welcome it.
「 Darling, me too! 」
「 I worked hard too! 」
「 My hands are tied up right now, you do it yourself 」
「 YES、Darling！！！ 」
Edie hugs my back.
「 Darling, Darling! Darling! -lingling 」
She stuffed her nose on my hair and sniffed me like a dog.
「 Sensei! Sensei! 」
Yomi’s pushing her huge breasts on me.
「 Nii-san. 」
Luna’s clinging to me desperately.
「 Nii-san, I want to have sex 」
「 Auuu, Yomi too 」
The shrine maidens speak to me with a blushing face.
「 If it was Agnes-chan, she’d say that she wants to have sex, I think 」
「 Yomi’s not Agnes-chan, but I’m still saying that I want to have sex 」
If it was Agnes, she’d surely do that.
「 Darling… 」
You too, Edie?
「 Not now, hold it 」
Edie says with a strict look.
「 If I had sex with Darling now, Michi will get angry. Misuzu’s also scary when she’s mad. Ruriko would be fuming 」
Yeah, they would.
「 Besides, we still need to be cautious 」
Yeah, the bodyguards of the young ladies are in here.
「 They’re not that scary 」
「 Yes, they’re weaker than Michi-oneesama and Edie-oneesama 」
Luna and Yomi said.,
「 No, it’s not about who’s hiding their skills, but some of them might have some ability similar to the Miko power 」
「 There’s none 」
「 Yes, Nii-san, we checked everyone 」
「 It’s still possible that they have abilities that Yomi and Luna can’t see 」
「 That’s right. They’re from families that served the nobles for generations, you don’t know what kind of skills they inherited 」
Margo-san enters as she says that.
「 Michi-chan has her Kudou style martial arts and Qi skills as the tradition. Others might also have some power they inherited from their families. You can’t get careless 」
「 With that said, not now. Maybe later 」
I kissed the three in order.
「 Yoshinobu-kun, come here, Minaho’s calling for you 」
「 Okay. I’ll head there 」
「 Ah, Yomi wants to go too! 」
「 Me too! 」
The two said, but.
「 Kyouko-san’s over there too, you sure? 」
Margo-san said with a smile.
「 That’s… 」
「 Auuu…. 」
The two lost their momentum.
「 Yomi and Luna, wait here. Edie, look after the two 」
I asked Edie. These two haven’t recovered yet.
「 You don’t want to see them either, do you? 」
She’s going all out with Michi, but, they just parry it easily.
「 Right, I’ll stay here! Leave the girls to me 」
She tells me.
◇ ◇ ◇
「 Yeah, this girl, this, and this one looks like we can use them 」
Minaho-neesan, Kyouko-san, and Miss Cordelia are talking while looking at the courtyard through the monitor.
Are they analyzing the skills of the bodyguards of each house?
「 Oh? I want this girl and this one 」
Miss Cordelia said.
「 That one is young lady 」
「 And that’s why I want her as a pet 」
She says calmly.
「 Can’t I kidnap them?
「 No. They’ll blame Kouzuki house 」
Well, it would be a big problem if the young lady gets kidnapped in the main mansion of Kouzuki house.
Trust on Kouzuki SS would plummet, and it’ll hurt Misuzu and Jii-chan’s name.
「 Oh, that’s unfortunate 」
Miss Cordelia laughs.
「 By the way, what about the Bomba Sisters from earlier, Kyouko? 」
「 Bomba? Oh, the Skylab Hurricane Mixer sisters? 」
Anjou Mitama-san and Kinuka-san.
「 Those girls are nothing 」
「 But, you love idiots like those, don’t you? 」
Miss Cordelia laughed.
「 Well, yeah, they dare to jump in like that. They’re probably airheads, but they’ve got the sense of humor, although 」
Kyouko-san smiled wryly.
「 I’m not into loyal girls like them 」
Anjou sisters are loyal.
「 You can get your hands on those girls even if you leave them alone 」
Minaho-neesan tells the two.
Then, she speaks to me, who’s standing on the doorway.
「 Yoshinobu, I think you already know, but… 」
I knew it.
「 Kurama Misato-san will become a prostitute 」
They failed in making an appeal to Jii-chan, and furthermore, their family is going downhill.
In short, they’re having money problems.
Then, Jii-chan told the sisters to discuss it with me.
That means that they’ll work in the Kuromori brothel.
「 Just one? What about the little sister? 」
Miss Cordelia asks Minaho-neesan.
「 The little sister, Arisu-san, is still 13. 」
「 We don’t let children work in our brothel from now on 」
Minaho-neesan was turned to a prostitute when she was 12.
「 Misato-san can take customers now, but, Yoshinobu will train Arisu-san so we can sell her anytime. Okay? 」
Minaho-neesan looked at me.
「 The conditions were to have the sisters as a set. The little sister’s spirit won’t hold if it’s just the elder sister defiled. The elder sister seems to have a weak heart compared to the younger. I think that they’ll break if you don’t train both of them 」
「 Okay 」
I’m a member of this criminal organization, and I’m also the child of Kuromori house, which runs the brothel.
I’m Kuromori Minaho’s brother.
I’m ready to dive into hell together with Minaho-neesan.
「 Oh, I see. If their masters become prostitutes, then they have no need for a personal bodyguard 」
Miss Cordelia laughs.
Right, a prostitute cannot have a personal bodyguard with her.
Much less if Minaho-neesan’s customers are all from leaders of politics and business. Each of them has their personal bodyguards.
If they were to buy a prostitute, a bodyguard is just in the way.
「 Well, okay. Putting that aside… 」
Kyouko-san stops the talk about the Kurama sisters.
「 Yoshinobu-kun, you’ll come back to the courtyard later, right? 」
「 Yes, I’ll return when the lecture’s done 」
Kyouko-san moves the switch on the security cameras.
「 Today, we have two girls sent in by the Yakuza 」
Oh, that one.
「 One is this girl. The bodyguard of this lady. You don’t have to worry about her. She’s an acquaintance of an acquaintance in Osaka. There are no other orders than to know the situation of Kouzuki house. I think that we fooled her with the farce from earlier 」
Oh, she won’t say anything other than how cool Rei-chan is and Kyouko-san’s appearance.
Kyouko-san switches up the camera.
「 This is the dangerous one. This one smells trouble. After all, she’s sent from Osaka directly 」
A woman with a sharp look and ponytail is on the monitor.
「 Her name is Tendou Otome. She’s the daughter of Tendou Sadao, a Kyoukaku in Osaka 」
She’s beautiful but really scary. She’s making a displeased face.
「 The bodyguard of Mizushima holdings came in last week. Kouzuki house knows that event and can only think of it as forced 」
Misuzu talked about this event in school, and so…
Those who have their personal bodyguards can come, and so they forced Tendou-san to a girl who never had a bodyguard before.
「 By the way, what’s Kyoukaku? 」
「 It’s a Yakuza term, well, it’s something like a bouncer. They’re people with honor and empathy that they’ll fight the enemy when there’s a dispute right away 」
「 Is that a job? 」
You’re not fixing disputes all the time, so what do you usually do?
「 Gambling most of the time, or wandering around. But, they’re strong, and so they coerce their surroundings with fear, threaten people, collect debts, mediating fights 」
「 Especially Tendou Sadao, he’s a famous man known by everyone in the Yakuza in Osaka. The people call him “42y/o Tendou Sadao” 」
「 Why 42y/o? 」
「 I don’t know either. They say that 42y/o is an unlucky age, and so if you meet that person, you’ll get involved in that unlucky age. Or, he got married at age 42, those were the rumors 」
Anyway, she’s a woman involved deeply with the Yakuza.
I’ll ask Yomi later about it.
Takakura Shrine should’ve heard about someone famous among the Yakuza.
「 Anyway, be careful around Tendou Otome. She might be planning something 」
Kyouko-san tells me.
「 By the way, uhm 」
I asked what Edie told me earlier.
「 Why are there three patterns of bodyguards in here? 」
Minaho-neesan smiled wryly.
「 That’s because Kyouko-san’s performance was too good 」
「 Those who have bodyguards at the same age as them are targets of bullying 」
「 I heard about it 」
「 The young ladies bring their attendants so they won’t get isolated in school. And if that attendant knows some martial arts, and is a bit strong, then it helps. That’s how it works 」
「 In short, there’s no need for the bodyguard to be absurdly strong 」
Kyouko-san and Minaho-neesan say while laughing.
「 Just an excuse to become vigilant of the bullies. Some professional male bodyguards come and go with them to school and home all the time anyway 」
Yeah, if it’s within the school grounds…
「 Therefore, most of the time, they choose the bodyguard among the lineage of the family bodyguard, and whichever is at the closest age. They don’t fuss much about real strength 」
「 When it comes to countering bullies, just having a father or brother that is a bodyguard has a strong effect 」
Yeah, it’s basically the bullies being a child of a policeman, or a brother of a pro wrestler.
「 There are hardly any truly strong girls, like Michi-san 」
「 Therefore, Margo chatting with the bodyguards along with their Masters, is a thing. They’re bodyguards just to remind you. They’re just there to have the young ladies get along 」
「 Then, that’s for the bodyguards who are with their Masters all the time, well, they are aware that it’s their job. The problem is… 」
The last ones, those who are away from their Masters.
「 Those girls are dissatisfied with their job as the bodyguard of a young lady 」
「 If they’re born in a family of bodyguards, their father or brother must be guarding the head of the family, right? They want to work there too. They think that it’s stupid for them to defend the daughter 」
「 That’s not all. They want to be guarding a much wealthier house than the ones they’re in charge in right now 」
What does that mean?
「 For those who had the same life passed through generations thinks that they have to serve that young lady, but… 」
「 Going in this party, they noticed that it’s better to serve others 」
「 Why? 」
「 Well, they saw Michi-san and Edie fight off Kyouko-san for real. They saw them fight with the skills they learned 」
「 For most bodyguards, they hide off their skills. Especially if it’s an inherited one 」
Each of the bodyguard family has something like Michi’s Kudou style.
「 I think that most of them got fired up, wanting to show off their skills after watching Edie fight. Especially those who are earnest. They didn’t choose to live the life of following their current master after all 」
「 Well, they can’t best Margo, Edie or Michi, nor me, but, they’re having the thoughts of showing off their appeal to get themselves hired by a better family. Well, you know, it’s about acknowledging that they have skills as a bodyguard 」
It just happened that they’re serving that family for generations. Furthermore, her age was close to the young lady, and so she’s appointed to become a bodyguard.
That means that her skills aren’t accepted.
「 In the end, if you’re training hard every day, you want people to see it. Then, you’d want people to say “her skills are real that she became that family’s bodyguard” 」
「 However, among those that were fussing around Margo, are some young ladies belonging to a wealthier family 」
Oh, for those who seriously want to become a bodyguard…
Becoming a bodyguard of a wealthy family’s daughter because it just happened that her family is connected…
They’ll never forgive those who are happily making a fuss with their master there.
If they think that they’re stronger, then…
They want to abandon their current master and become a bodyguard on a family with a higher status.
「 Kouzuki SS isn’t the only security firm after all. Maybe some of them want to join in Kouzuki SS to try their abilities 」
Instead of making a fuss as Rei-chan’s fan…
They want to train under Rei-chan?
「 Therefore, this get-together is terrible for the underground society 」
「 It’s a sales battle here and there 」
That looks bad. For sure.
If their bodyguards abandon them, then the young ladies would protest to Misuzu.
It might expand to problems within families.
「 Yoshinobu, be careful 」
「 Don’t you think that they’d want to become bodyguards of Ruriko-san and Yoshiko-san? 」
Right, the two don’t have personal bodyguards yet.
「 Ain’t that difficult for you? Yoshinobu-kun! 」
Kyouko-san laughed like she’s having fun with this.
「 One off the purpose showing off Yomi and Luna is to show the weakness of the Miko power to the Kansai Yakuza on purpose 」
