「 These girls will be okay even if I’m not here 」
Tsukiko looked at Dolly and Anna.
「 They’re no longer nervous and wary of us 」
Speaking of which, the two were holding their spears when they got here, but now…
They let go of their spears and let them stand against the wall.
「 They seem to understand that Kou-sama has no intention of harming them 」
「 You didn’t show any signs of attacking, and you don’t interfere with anything beyond necessary 」
Yeah, I did show them that I had sex with a lot of girls but…
I left them alone.
「 They saw how Kou-sama is in good terms with everyone, and how Kou-sama embraces the girls and releases their mind 」
「 Yoshida-kun…isn’t scary 」
Tsukiko said. Ai added.
「 Men are scary, but…Yoshida-kun isn’t 」
「 Oh, I get that. Kuromori-kun makes you feel at ease. In fact. He’s amazing in sex 」
「 But, it feels natural, don’t you think? Like, doing it with Kuromori Kou-sama 」
「 Right. Our fates are already sealed, so it makes you feel that it’s inevitable. Oh, it’s not like I’m regretting having sex with you. Rather, I feel glad that it happened 」
Momoka and Shirahata-san said.
「 These girls also feel that Kou-sama and the girls accept each other 」
「 Therefore, I’ll go back to the Nadeshiko department. I’m worried about the remaining two 」
The remaining two prostitute cadets, Tokuda Sonoko-san and Kurosawa Naoko-san.
The prostitute cadets, Nozomi, Momoka, Shirahata-san, and Misato are in this room.
Tsukiko, the other member of the Nadeshiko department is in here, but… Mitama, oh right, she’s still in the Judo Hall.
「 Then that means, it’s just Yukino and Minaho-neesan facing Tokuda-san? 」
At the end of the lunch break, Yukino went to the Nadeshiko department, in other words, the hidden room under the principal’s office.
「 Yukino talks to everyone with the same attitude, and she never breaks her pace so I think that she’ll talk to the two of them normally 」
「 But, I don’t think Yukino-chan can make Sonoko-chan and Naoko-chan open up 」
「 I wonder. I think that Sonoko-san also knows about Yukino’s situation, right 」
She’s Shirasaka Sousuke’s daughter, and because of her father, she went through some tragic events and the whole nation knows about it.
It was during the May holiday incident, where all the information about Yukino is leaked to the internet.
「 I think they have a lot of common because they’ve been through a lot because of their bad parents, but their upbringing is different 」
Katsuko-nee smiled wryly.
「 Yukino-chan was still a young lady of the Shirasaka house. She’s not the young lady of the head of the Shirasaka house, but still, she’s a daughter of the head of a top-class advertising company, so she had a good life before all that, right? 」
Yukino isn’t on the level of the young ladies of nobility, but sure, she was still a young lady.
「 Yukino-san. It’s my first time seeing her but she’s different. It feels that she’s very sophisticated 」
「 Right, I’ve been watching her on TV. I thought that I can’t beat that flashy atmosphere of hers 」
「 She’s a Tokyo child. Her upbringing is different from us, I understood that when I met her 」
Oh yeah, Nozomi, Momoka, and Shirahata-san are daughters of presidents of a local company.
「 I think Sonoko-chan’s going to be confused. 」 Even if Yukino-chan talks to them, they won’t be in the same wavelength 」
Sonoko-san and her friend are daughters of Kansai Yakuza, the lowest good-for-nothing men.
Yukino’s topic is probably with fashion so their conversation won’t match.
「 Katsuko-san, let’s hurry. We’ve been living with Sonoko-san for the past few weeks so we’re used to dealing with them 」
Their sense of fellowship with Tokuda-san is growing.
They did promise to follow up with the two prostitute cadets from Kansai before they drop out.
「 Then, we’re going back now. Dear, take care of this place 」
Katsuko-nee gave me the keys to the van parked in front of the bakery.
「 Just stack the empty pads. I’ll drive the car back to the mansion later 」
「 Oh, got it 」
「 Well then, see you again Kuromori-kun! 」
「 Excuse us 」
「 Yes, we’re coming to school tomorrow so we’ll meet again 」
Nozomi, Momoka, and Shirahata-san told me.
「 Yeah, I’m usually here after the second period until the fifth period 」
Today, I didn’t end up going from the first period to the sixth, but…
「 Well then, I will be excusing myself too 」
「 Me too 」
Tsukiko and Misato bowed their heads to me.
Err, I’ll shower you with love once we get back to the mansion, Tsukiko.
「 Misato, we weren’t able to have sex today, but let’s do it tomorrow 」
I promised her.
「 Yes, certainly 」
「 Also, Arisu and Kinuka will be attending in the new middle school on Wednesday 」
「 Yes, I heard from Katsuko-sama as well. Thank you, please tell the two “Good luck” 」
Misato’s happy for her sister and her bodyguard’s situation.
「 Mitama’s also coming to this school so we can meet every day 」
「 Yeah, then soon, you’ll be with Arisu 」
「 I’m looking forward to it 」
「 Then, let’s go. I think we’ll be fine in school, but Tsukiko-chan, be on the lookout 」
「 Yes 」
She can deal with whatever situation with her Miko power.;
If it’s within the school, you don’t have to deal with the weakness of the Takakura shrine maidens where they can shoot her from a distance beyond her reach.
「 I’m back! 」
Mitama, in her white school uniform, returns.
「 Just in time. These girls are going back to the Nadeshiko department, so Mitama, go with them as their guard 」
I ordered right away.
Even so, it’s better to have at least one bodyguard with them.
「 Roger that! 」
With that said, Katsuko-nee, Nozomi, Momoka, Shirahata-san, Tsukiko, Misato, and Mitama…
They left the bakery.
Ai, Anya and the drill sisters remained.
「 Haa, now it’s a little quiet 」
Ai comes to me and said.
「 I’m…bad at meeting people for the first time 」
「 Sorry about that 」
Anya smiled wryly.
「 No, that’s not…what I mean 」
Ai says in a panic.
「 We’re back!! 」
Nei and Edie have returned after Katsuko-nee left.
Nei, Edie, and Grace Marinka-san.
As expected, Grace-san looks a bit down.
「 Oh, I’ll prepare tea 」
Ai began to prepare tea for everyone
「 I’ll help you out 」
Nei goes with Ai.
「 Sit here Jun. Darling, did you watch our fight? 」
Edie asks me with a smile.
「 Yeah, I did. We watched it here, but… 」
「 Why did you broadcast it to the whole school? 」
If she was to fight against Grace-san, isn’t it better if it’s done secretly by the students?
「 Well, it’s a countermeasure for jealousy 」
Nei replies instead of Edie.
「 The story of Edie winning the tournament of her class the other day has already spread throughout the school. Not everyone’s interested in martial arts, and the broadcast for the tournament was at a late-night slot, but even then, not all the students would watch it 」
Well, yeah, true.
「 But you see since Edie won, and they saw some people congratulating her. There will be people taking it badly and saying that she’s getting carried away 」
「 Remember the incident earlier this morning, Darling? 」
Edie asks me.
「 This morning, about Megu? 」
There was a third-year guy who stopped Megu from entering the school building after her morning practice and confessed to her in front of the students.
But, that was just a guy who didn’t like that we’re engaged in our freshmen year and sell pastry at the cafeteria.
It’s a show only for harassment.
「 We can’t let that happen again. That’s why I demonstrated how strong I am to the student body 」
Edie overwhelmed Grace-san, a professional wrestler.
She showed her extreme strength without cutting corners.
Edie’s beaten up some delinquents in the past, but the students don’t know that.
Even the students who happened to witness that scene don’t know how strong Edie is.
But having a pro wrestler, Grace Marinka-san, then it’s easy to understand.
She’s taller and her physique is much better than Edie’s. She looks like a talented adult female wrestler from her appearance.
Then, Edie gave Grace-san an overwhelming defeat.
「 I usually create this image of an unreasonable, quick-tempered, and frank character. That’s why I talk like this 」
Yeah, Edie actually can talk Japanese without sounding broken.1
「 I convey to everyone that it’s bad if I get angry 」
I see it now.
「 That also promoted my close relationship with Mitama-chan! Everyone watches Yukino-chan’s TV show after all 」
Mitama appears on TV with the twins, Eri and Rie, wearing a micro bikini instead of Yukino, whose belly is already starting to swell.
She’s a beauty with an incredible style, a dignified aura, and she seems to gain a lot of fans as she defeats various people at the TV station every week.
「 I’m also close to Darling and Megumi. If we can convince them that it’s a bad idea to be hostile to me, then they won’t be messing with Darling and Megumi either 」
That’s why she purposely shows that she gets along with Mitama.
「 That’s the reason for our side, but as for Jun 」
Edie looked at Grace-san.
「 Jun had to lose properly. That’s why I made her lose in front of the whole school 」
「 Yeah, it was utter defeat. I lost, and made such an ugly mess that people saw it live 」
Grace-san speaks bitterly.
「 That’s the end of my martial arts life 」
「 Losing isn’t shameful. The shame is when you don’t get up 」
「 If you accepted that you lost, then you have to stand up. Don’t remain defeated, grab that victory next time 」
「 But I… 」
Grace-san looks down.
「 I’ll say it again and again. Jun has a great raw talent. If Jun’s body learned my skills, don’t you think that would be amazing? 」
「 I’ll only enter the martial arts scene for one year. Next year, I’ll quit 」
「 Why? You’re so strong 」
Grace-san is surprised.
「 I’m not interested in having people watch me as I fight. Even so, I have reasons why I have to go to the ring 」
Edie said. Anya;
「 Translate what I’m about to say for the girls 」
She’s going to tell the drill sisters.
「 Okay 」
「 I came from an assassination cult from New Orleans. My skills were originally made for killing people, for assassinations. Such techniques were drilled into me since childhood. I’ve been training far harder than Jun might think 」
「 Fortunately, I left the cult and came to Japan. I met Darling and found this lovely family. However, I’m still not free. The assassination cult knows my skills, and if the head of the cult changed, they might try to get me back. Or maybe another organization will try to recruit me to their ranks 」
「 That’s… 」
「 Jun may not understand this because you’re Japanese, but that’s how it is. That’s why I have to make sure that I don’t get used as an assassin 」
「 And so, martial arts tournaments! 」
Nei said with a smile.
「 Correct. Even if it’s just for a year, I’ll make my face known all over the world as a famous female fighter. A person whose face and name are known to many can’t become an assassin. That’s how I’ll make the assassination cult give up on me 」
「 While at it, that’s also a way to launder my personal career. If I’m famous as a martial artist, then I can spread that as my official setting instead of being someone raised by an assassination cult from childhood. The reason I’m strong is that I’m in martial arts 」
Edie said. Anya translates.
Dolly and Anna are listening to the conversation earnestly.
「 Well then, now I’ll be speaking for Darling 」
Edie looked at the drill sisters.
「 I’ll settle the last concern you’re feeling 」
「 Just as Darling said, you don’t have to kill people anymore. In Japan, there are no jobs for the girl assassins 」
Edie speaks clearly.
「 You need to learn skills to survive in the future other than killing people using spears. Well, you don’t have to worry about that. Darling and us will look for one 」
「 Yeah, that’s right 」
I also looked at Dolly and Anna and said.
「 You know what I’m talking about right? I think you girls are worried about what’s ahead 」
「 I’ll say it before you make conclusions, you don’t have to toss away your spears 」
The two drill spears on the wall.
「 You won’t have to kill people anymore, and you won’t be girl assassins anymore. But, you can still hold to your spears, even continue your training 」
The sisters sighed in relief.
「 Those are skills you learned with great pains, it’s a waste to abandon them. You girls are afraid that you can’t use your spears anymore, aren’t you? 」
Using their drill spears in killing is something the sisters take pride and joy in.
Being a girl assassin was their reason for being.
They can’t just abandon it as it’s always been like that.
「 Although, the meaning of your spears will change. From today on, it’s no longer a spear used to deal with people you’re ordered to kill. Dolly, Anna, you’re going to use that spear to keep our family safe 」
「 It’s the same with my skills. My skills aren’t for killing people. It’s to protect my family 」
Anya translates and the sisters listen.
「 If your spear is used to protect, then that’s good! You don’t have to throw it away, keep on practicing with it! 」
- Just imagine Americans trying to speak Japanese, that’s how it is, but I can’t really translate that in English ↩
