「 If you were to accept them and the remaining girl assassins, then they need the resolution to become your woman 」
Anya looked at Dolly and Anna and said.
Dolly said something in a language I don’t comprehend.
Anya listened, and then…
「 The people they’ve met so far are either people who give orders or people to kill, but the people here are different 」
A group of orphans gathered by a crazy female boss on a Southeast Asian dark organization.
Teaching them only the art of killing, and most of the girls were made disposable.
Kyouko-san destroyed the whole organization and only the thirteen survived.
Then, she’s asking me to take care of all of the girl assassins.
「 You told them that they don’t need to kill anymore. You told them that in exchange, they have to learn skills for them to keep on living. That you’ll help them in their learning 」
Anya translates what Dolly’s saying.
「 That’s right. We’ll help you in however we can 」
I said. Anya translates for Dolly and Anna.
Dolly nods and tells Anya something.
「 “Just a final check, are you sure it’s okay for us not to toss our spears?” she asks 」
「 Yeah, of course. Those are your weapons to keep yourself safe, why would you toss them away? Even we have some measures to defend ourselves. We always need fighting strength to keep our family safe. However 」
I look at the drill sisters in the eyes and said.
「 You’re not allowed to kill someone if it’s not necessary, even if it’s to start a fight or to defend yourself. Killing someone brings a grudge. That grudge will bring calamity one after another 」
Dolly and Anna make serious faces and listen to what I say as Anya translates them.
「 Of course, you’re allowed to use any methods when the life of the family is in danger. I won’t hesitate to kill either. That is if there’s no other way to neutralize the enemy 」
In fact, I killed Cesario Viola.
I don’t regret that.
If I didn’t pull the trigger back then, my family would’ve died.
「 Your spears isn’t used to kill someone from orders, but a spear you use to keep the family safe 」
「 That family is the people here 」
「 Yeah, this isn’t everyone. I’ll introduce you to the others later 」
Like, Minaho-neesan on the new brothel.
Shou-neechan and Rei-chan are at Kouzuki SS.
Mariko, Kana-senpai, Erica, are back at their homes.
Marika can only come during weekends.
Margo-san’s not here, she’s probably doing some work on the martial arts business.
Edie’s not showing up, probably because she’s entertaining Grace-san.
「 Uhm! 」
Then, Agnes brings in a small plate to us.
「 This is delicious, try it 」
She brings the plate to the drill sisters.
Tsukiko stepped forward quickly, closing the distance so her Miko power could reach them in case of any unforeseen circumstances.
Luna and Koyomi moved together with her sister as well.
Michi and Haiji too.
Mitama and Kinuka went to guard the young group.
「 Wait a second, I’ll tell the two now 」
Anya smiled and told Dolly what Agnes is saying
「 Here, I brought some forks 」
Nei brings in three forks.
「 Huh, me too? 」
「 I mean, Anya-chan’s joining us right? 」
「 Everyone, up until now I’ve only been a guest who comes here once in a while, eat dinner, have sex, and then go out. But from today on, I’ll be joining the family. Please do take care of me 」
Anya speaks in formal Japanese and bows her head.
Then, she took the fork from Nei, rolled some spaghetti from Agnes’ plate, and ate it.
「 Yes, that’s delicious 」
Anya tells Agnes with a smile, and then recommended Dolly and Anna to taste it as well.
The drill sisters also tasted the spaghetti from Agnes’ plate.
「 !! 」
「 !!! 」
Dolly and Anna look at each other with excited faces.
「 What do you think? 」
Agnes asks worriedly.
Anya translates for her.
「 They say that it’s delicious. That they never ate something like that before 」
Anya told Agnes what Dolly and Anna were saying.
「 That’s great, desuno! There is more food on that table over there! 」
Agnes invites Dolly and the girls to the table.
「 You have to get along with the family so let’s start with Agnes and the group! 」
「 Is that okay? 」
Anya looks at me. Dolly and Anna too.
Yeah, it’s better to leave Dolly and the girls to Agnes who has no evil thoughts.
Luna and Koyomi-chan from the same group have their Miko power, and Anya’s going to be with them.
The other girls will also be watching over Dolly and Anna.
「 Agnes, look after them. Be friendly to them. Especially these two, they weren’t taught much about the world like Agnes from before. That’s why you have to teach them what to do when living in here 」
Agnes had been shut in the basement until half a year ago.
「 They don’t know a lot so we have to be gentle with them, or they will feel uneasy and scared 」
「 Yes, I understand desuno! 」
The blonde half-foreign beauty shows an angelic carefree smile.
「 Now, let’s go 」
「 This way! 」
Luna and the girls quickly set up the seats for Anya and the drill sisters at Agnes’ table.
「 Let’s go 」
Anya took Dolly and Anna and followed Agnes to the seats.
「 Well, it should be okay leaving them to Agnes 」
Nei tells me.
「 Kyouko-san gave me the files for the remaining 11. She mentioned that she’ll bring them after Dolly and Anna get used to the place. 」
Yeah, that’s for the better.
We’re already busy with Dolly and Anna.
So, it’s going to be hard looking after the other girl assassins.
「 Their age range is from 12 to 16, and their origins are all over the place. Even so, they’re all cuties 」
It’s the hobby of their female boss in that organization.
「 As for weapons, it seems that it’s not just the drill spears those two had. They have chains, darts, and even shovel girls 」
「 Shovel? 」
「 Yep, the thing you use for digging and snow clearing 」
「 Is that even an assassination tool? 」
「 Yo-chan, what are you talking about? Shovels are one of the most ominous weapons during the first world war. Have you seen the movie Psycho 2? 」
「 Psycho 2? 」
「 Oh, let’s watch it next time. Then let’s also watch the first one. You can ignore the third and fourth! Van Sant’s remake is just a waste of time and it’s not worth watching 」
「 Anyway, it went well with those two but we don’t know about the remaining 11 yet. We have to consider our methods before Kyouko-san brings them 」
Maybe some girls are less understanding than Dolly and Anna.
「 No, I don’t think we need to worry that much, Ya-chan 」
「 Kyouko-san chose those two out of the thirteen and brought them here 」
Oh, Agnes and her group surrounded them and they began eating dinner.
Eri and Rie are talking to Dolly and Anna too.
「 I think she’s considering that if Dolly and Anna got convinced, the other girls will also follow Dolly 」
It’s Kyouko-san who did this after all.
「 Ah, true. Looking at Kyouko-san’s file, Dolly’s the eldest of the group 」
「 I haven’t seen the other girls personally yet but I don’t think we have to worry too much 」
「 Of course, we’d be well prepared, and with more people, we can expect more time and effort needed than we used to convince Dolly and Anna today 」
If they find life other than being a girl assassin.
We’re turning their life from where they have to follow orders to kill, to a life where they protect their allies.
「 Dolly and Anna are clever girls, they were just for a day, but the other girls might be more trouble 」
Dolly’s too docile that she’s not resisting, but…
Whether they understand what we want to convey or not is a different story
「 It seems that they’re convinced from the bottom of their heart, but they’ll blow up soon. They shouldn’t be forced, they need to make the decision themselves
That’s why I’m not giving orders.
「 Yo-chan’s quite persevering. Onee-chan loves that part of you, I respect that 」
Nei said happily.
◇ ◇ ◇
Then, we continued our fun dinner with the family.
To be precise, it’s the family + Kuromiya Motoko-san and Mikuriya Kurumi-san
Then, Shiranui Shie-san too.
Oh, she’s sitting next to Sakurako, making a gloomy face.
I guess she’s feeling sad that she’s not assigned as a bodyguard in here.
Is there someone who can talk to Shie-san?
If it’s me, she’d feel that I’m taking away her master, Sakurako, so she won’t open up to me right now.
Since she’s a bodyguard of the noble family, she can’t talk on equal terms with Misuzu and Ruriko.
Michi, she’s a junior in school.
I mean, Michi’s got a distinct personality so she would hate Shie-san’s hesitating part.
Mitama and Kinuka are also bodyguards.
It can’t be a commoner, not a young lady either, and she can’t get along with other bodyguards.
Who can be friends with her then?
While I was thinking that…
「 I’ve returned 」
Rei-chan enters the dining room.
「 Good evening. You’re doing another fun thing again 」
She’s with Kinoshita-san from Kouzuki SS>
Kinoshita-san’s carrying her favorite weapon, a smashing flail on her shoulder.
It’s a long-handled weapon with a chain and an iron ball attached to the end of the stick that’s longer to the stick.
「 Welcome. We’re having a thin clothing fair today 」
「 Then, should I take mine off too? Although I’m not too confident in my naked body 」
She’s a former member of the Banbarubie 3 so, well…
Her common sense is broken.
「 We have a lot of see-through clothes if you want to change clothes so go ahead 」
「 Wow, I wonder which should I pick? Reika-san, what do I do? 」
Kinoshita-san asks Rei-chan
「 Hmm, I’m hungry so I’m going to eat first and think later 」
「 Oh, you’re right. I’m also hungry! Then we’re going to eat first 」
「 Sure, sit on that table. Mana-chan 」
Katsuko-nee looked at Mana and then;
「 We have plates here, eat whichever you want! 」
She brings tableware for the two
「 Thank you, Mana-chan 」
Rei-chan thanked her.
「 And so, after eating, who is it that I have to beat down? 」
「 Well, you don’t have to go as far as beating them down. Your partners will be the young lady of the Kuromiya house 」
「 Ya-chan, what’s going on? 」
「 I thought that it would be good for them to have a hands-on experience with a weapon that’s similar to spear 」
「 I mean, I can use spears too. I learned it when I was young 」
「 I stopped by the Kouzuki SS dojo to grab some practice spears. It won’t be dangerous even if those hit 」
「 Kouzuki SS also has spear training? 」
From what I heard earlier this morning, only a few people in Japan learn how to use a spear though.
「 As a sporting martial arts, it’s not that competitive, but Kouzuki SS is a security company, see? A long handed weapon is a good way to keep out the thugs 」
「 Recently, police had been using long-handled weapons like man catcher 」
「 Some facilities have them for security purposes 」
Oh, like in TV news.
I’ve seen a long white stick with a u-shaped tip to catch a thug or a bank robber.
「 That’s why we teach the basics of spear and stick fighting in our training 」
「 It hasn’t developed into a competitive sport, but there’s a demand for long-handled weapons. 」
「 Some people use it as their main weapon, like me! 」
Kinoshita-san said with a smile, but…
「 You’re the only one I know that uses flail in a real fight 」
Rei-chan smiled wryly.
Or should I say that Kinoshita-san’s the only one in the world who carries a long-handled flail daily?
「 Either way, she’s the best at Kouzuki SS when it comes to using long-handled weapons. And so I brought her here 」
Kuromiya-san and Mikuriya-san had been training their family traditional spear arts by themselves.
They have never faced someone strong.
「 All I have to do is beat them without getting them injured, right? 」
Kinoshita-san’s asking something scary while showing a high-school-like babyface.
「 Or so she says, but what about the Kuromiya spear arts? Are you going to accept your loss without a fight? 」
Nei stirs Kuromiya-san up.
「 You shouldn’t show your back to your enemy! 」
Kuromiya Motoko-san takes on Nei’s provocation
「 Well then, go fight in the courtyard after you’re done with dinner 」
