Pure Love x Insult Complex Chapter 1407. School Festival Day 2 / After the Festival (Part 6)



「 I danced with him because I want to, what about you Katsuko? 」

Nagisa asks Katsuko-nee with a bold smile.

「 Hey, Nagisa? 」

It was right as the music paused. That’s why the students are looking at Katsuko-nee and Nagisa.

「 W-What? 」

「 What is it this time? 」

Since Nagisa and Mao-chan interrupted the dance, Mitama, Kinuka, Edie, Line Haruko, Kana, Ai, Nei, and Saito Yuki-san also jumped in to dance, so the students are excited to see what happens next.

「 To be honest, the dance this year is too fun. 」

「 Yeah, usually, I’d just chill and laugh at the dancers 」

「 Yeah, there are too many unforeseen events 」

You can hear the voices of the boys outside the white line of the court.

「 Okay everyone, listen to this lady for a second 」

「 Listen to Mama! 」

Nagisa and Mao-chan call everyone with a smile.

They’re such a beautiful pair of mother and daughter so they get the attention.

「 Good evening everyone 」

「 Good evening! 」

They start with greetings.

「 I’m Katagai Nagisa, well, I guess I’m technically your senior. Oh well, let’s put that aside 」

Nagisa entered our school but didn’t graduate because she got kidnapped right after.

「 And this girl’s my daughter, Mao 」

「 Mao~ 」

Mao-chan bows her head

「 So cute! 」

I hear the school girls.

「 You see, I’m an alumnus of this school together with Takanashi Katsuko here. Katsuko and I are of the same age, and we entered the school at the same time 」

Nagisa explains cheerfully.

「 Oh, I knew it! Katsuko-san’s a graduate of our school! 」

I hear some voices.

「 Ah, sorry, you see, I’m going to be blunt from this point onwards 」

Nagisa looked at Katsuko-nee with a smile.

「 Well, it’s a private matter so I can’t tell you the details, but both Katsuko and I, for reasons beyond our control, weren’t able to graduate from high school 」

Katsuko-nee shows a sad smile.

「 I have this girl with me, so you can guess the reason why 」

Nagisa pats Mao-chan’s head gently.

That would lead students to assume that Nagisa had no choice but to leave school while still in high school because she was pregnant, by working backward from her apparent age.

「 But, the reason why Katsuko couldn’t come to school wasn’t from shame. It was something beyond her control. I know about it. How much suffering she had 」

「 Hey, Nagisa, stop it 」

Katsuko-nee tries to stop Nagisa, but…

「 Let’s go back a little further, when we were students here five years ago, there was also an after-party event after the school festival, right? We left the school before the festival, so we didn’t get to see it, but I knew that this event exist. Back then, even if I had a lover, I would’ve told my friends that I’ll never dance because I’m too embarrassed 」

Nagisa speaks calmly, everyone listens quietly.

「 So, I’m sorry. I forced it, but I danced with my daughter. Megumi-chan, sorry for borrowing Yoshida-kun, I’ll repay you later 」

「 We’ll return the favor! Megumi-chan! 」

Nagisa and Mao-chan emphasize that they’re close friends with us.

「 But, thanks to that, I’m satisfied. The sadness from having to quit high school is gone. Thanks 」

「 Thanks! 」

Nagisa and Mao-chan bowed to the students, not us.

「 So, I’m done. So, what about you Katsuko? 」

「 Katsuko-chan, what do you want to do? 」

Nagisa and Mao-chan look at Katsuko-nee provokingly.

「 You were like me, unable to dance at the after-party when you were a student in high school, right? I’m quite happy that I got to dance today, but… 」

「 Mao’s satisfied too! 」

「 Katsuko, what about you? 」

「 What about you, Katsuko-chan? 」

Katsuko-nee looks perplexed.

Katsuko-nee doesn’t have that shamelessness, in a good sense, that Nagisa has.

Katsuko-nee thinks that the school festival belongs to the current students.

That’s why she feels sorry that she goes forward to enjoy herself.

「 I think that Katsuko-san should dance 」

Kana-senpai shouts.

「 I mean, I want to see how Katsuko-san dances. Right, everyone? 」

「 Yeah, I want to see it! 」

Nei joins Kana-senpai.

「 Yeah, I think it’s okay 」

「 Katsuko-san’s always taking care of us with her lunch bread 」

「 It’s our school so there should be no problems 」

「 I mean, please dance with me, Katsuko-san 」

「 Nonono, Katsuko-san will dance with me 」

The students voice their approval of Katsuko-nee dancing.

But, Katsuko-nee’s…

She’s still troubled.


「 Oh, I see. I get it. Katsuko 」

Nagisa smiles.

「 Right, it’s hard for someone our age to do a folk dance. I mean, I’m fine since, in kindergarten, we’re often asked to dance with our children, but it’s a bit hard for Katsuko, who’s an adult woman. Right?~ 」

「 No, I’m 」

「 I get it, I do. I know well how you feel because we’re the same age! 」

Nagisa looks up at Iwakura-san on the stage.

「 Yukiyo-chan! Tango! Play tango music! 」

Huh? Tango?

「 Katsuko’s much better in Argentine Tango than folk dance. Right, Katsuko? 」

Nagisa smiles.

「 She will feel sorry if she’s intruding on the student’s events if it were folk dancing, but Katsuko’s dance performance would be just exposing her hidden talent to the students. Everyone can have fun watching, right? 」

Nagisa kneads the reason just to make Katsuko-nee dance.

「 With that said, Yukiyo-chan, hurry up and play some tango music! Any Argentine music will do. 」

『 U-Uhm, N-Nagisa-san, even if you ask for something that suddenly… 』

Iwakura-san sounds troubled. Her nervousness goes through the mic.

Well yeah.

The school festival committee couldn’t have prepared tango music for this./



Suddenly, a tango melody plays in the gym.

「 If it’s La Cumparsita, then I can play it 」


Edie’s carrying an accordion.

Huh, Edie, you can play that?

I mean, where did you borrow that from?

「 Oh? Cumparsita’s a classic! 」

Nagisa smiled at Edie.

「 But, it’s also the easiest Argentine tango song for the students, besides, I can sing it too 」

Edie smiled back at Nagisa.

「 Right. If so, please do that 」

Nagisa and Edie made that exchange.

Then, her accordion’s ready.

I mean, I know that piece too.


「 Okay, I’ll dance with you Katsuko! Let’s go! 」

Nagisa goes before Katsuko-nee.

「 You’re always getting things your way, Nagisa 」

Katsuko-nee also got ready.

「 Katsuko will dance the woman-side. Sorry but I’m not much of a fancy dancer 」

Nagisa’s already in her stable period, but she’s still pregnant

「 I know 」

Katsuko-nee finally smiles.

「 Well then, let’s start 」


Edie plays the melancholy prelude on the accordion./

Then, the music changes to the main melody of the tango.

「 Ooh!!! 」

Katsuko-nee and Nagisa started dancing tango.

「 T-They’re amazing!!! 」

Nagisa and Katsuko were both the top prostitutes of the Black Forest.

Furthermore, Minaho-neesan trains the prostitutes of the brothel.

It’s so they can deal with the big names in politics and business.

Their education also includes various artistic disciplines.

Naturally, that includes dancing.


「 It’s beautiful 」

I know this choreography.

「 ……♪Si supieras, Que aún dentro de mi alma♪ 」

Edie sings along with her accordion.

She’s speaking Spanish, I think.

Edie’s music is great, and she also has a beautiful voice.

She sure can do everything.

「 Yoshi-kun, they’re coming here 」

Megu whispers.

Katsuko-nee and nagisa goes to us while dancing.

「 Okay, switch! I can’t handle it anymore 」

Nagisa pats her stomach with a smile.

She shouldn’t move too much.

「 Can’t help it then 」

I reach out to Katsuko-nee.

Misuzu will get angry at me later, but…

「 Dear 」

「 Don’t mind it, come here 」

I took Katsuko-nee’s hand and started dancing tango with her.

「 Huh, Baker-kun? 」

「 How do you know tango? 」

The students in the gym are surprised.

Minaho-neesan did train me too.

I’m Kouzuki Misuzu’s fiance, Kuromori Kou.

So, it’s troublesome if I can’t at least dance.

I’ll pair up with Misuzu and dance at some of the parties after all.

That’s why I started dance training with Misuzu.

Then, Misuzu says that she wants to dance tango with me.

So, I practiced this piece.

「 !! 」

Nagisa’s eyes soften as she watches us dance together.

Yeah, she’s having fun.

We’re dancing right in front of everyone.

「 ♪……Que por tu ausencia no comía, Al verme solo el otro día También me dejó♪ 」

As soon as her singing ends, Edie also finishes the music on her Accordion.

Katsuko-nee and I posed and finished our dance.

「 Oooooooh!! 」

The hall is filled with cheers.

◇ ◇ ◇

『 Okay, we’re done now. We’re going to play some appropriate music from now on, you can dance as much as you want

Iwakura-san, the committee head, said, and then…

The music isn’t folk dance, but rather, pop music.

From here on, it’s no longer a folk dance for those who have lovers, but an ordinary dance party.

All the students, even those who were just watching earlier, came to the dance area.

「 Nii-san, please dance with me too 」

Luna came over, so I danced with her.

「 Look here Yo-chan, cheese! 」

Nei takes photos.

Nei seems to have captured the photos of Katsuko-nee’s tango with me.

「 Katsuko-san, please dance with us 」

The girls gather around Katsuko-nee.

「 Sure, if it’s just girls 」

Katsuko-nee smiled gently.

「 Eeh? Why is that? 」

The guys complain, but Katsuko-nee danced with the girls.

「 Oh, that, yes! 」

Mitama climbed the platform where the volleyball referees sat and danced, waving fans with both hands.

Kinuka’s standing upside down on her sister’s head.

None can follow the performance of the two.

「 Thank you, Nii-san, Megumi-oneesama too 」

Then, I danced with Megu again.

「 Ufufu 」

Megu laughs.

「 What’s up? 」

「 Somehow, I feel like I just keep on worrying about things I don’t need to worry about 」

Megu hugs me while dancing.

「 I’m not the only one in the family who’s struggling, and the girls who have troubles immediately tell the family, and in the end, the whole family works it out with their strength 」

Yeah, for the two days of the school festival.

Everyone moved about to fix Katsuko-nee’s insecurities.

Katsuko-nee’s a member of the bakery, but she tries to hide behind us because “she’s not a high-school student”

To push her to the front.

Whether it’s running the cafe with the tennis club, appearing on National TV, or the dance just now.

Those were all to let the students accept Katsuko-nee as one of them.

So that’s it.

「 Isn’t that great, Megu? 」

I look at Katsuko-nee happily dancing with the girls.

「 You’re right, Yoshi-kun 」

Megu also watched Katsuko-nee with a happy smile.

Nagisa and Mao-chan must be tired, they’re sitting on the folding chair near Edie’s group.

A lot of students gather there too.

They’re all quite popular.

「 Hey, hey, we’re here too 」

「 It’s about time for us to come out too 」

Rie and Eri came over.

「 I kind of feel sorry for the girls that remained in the mansion, but… 」

「 I think that it’s an opportunity, it would be a waste if we don’t dance with Onii-san 」

Agnes and the young ladies couldn’t come to the school festival.

Mana, Yomi, and Haiji couldn’t come to the gym.

But, if you feel sorry for the people who aren’t here, then just apologize to them later.

You shouldn’t give up on the reason that you feel sorry for other people.

It’ll only become a burden in your mind.

「 Ah, the twins are here too! Okay, taking photos! 」

Nei took photos of Eri, Rie, and me.

「 Kurose-san, what are you doing there? Take a photo with Nii-san too 」

「 Yes, let’s take a photo together 」

Eri and Rie pulled Kurose Anju.

「 Eeeeh? I-I’m… 」

Kurose Anju looks confused.

「 Don’t mind it, Anju-chan, you’ll feel glad later that you took a photo here! 」

Nei laughs.

「 Nei-san, it won’t even take a month 」

「 Three days. Three days later and Kurose-san will be thankful to Nei-neesan 」

The twins said.


「 Uhm, may I too? 」

Misato and the four prostitute cadets came over.

「 Minaho-san told us to enjoy it to the end since it’s the school festival 」

「 That’s why we came here 」

「 We have to dance too 」

Sumitomo Momoka, Shirahata Setsuna, and Asahina Nozomi said.

「 Sure, dance away 」

「 I’ll take photos 」

We enjoy the closing party to our heart’s content.

◇ ◇ ◇

The after-party was over and we returned to the cafe.

But since the cleanup is over, the only thing we have here is a bunch of borrowed tents, plastic chairs, and tables.

The equipment to make coffee and other stuff are in one corner of the cafeteria.

We’ll return it tomorrow.

「 Okay, do we have everyone? Let’s begin then! 」

Kana-senpai gathers the tennis girls in the cafeteria.

She’s going to hand the cosmetics that Mariko left for the tennis girls.

「 Ah, it’s unfair that it’s just the tennis girls! 」

Girls watching from the side say that, but…

「 Mariko, my friend gave these, so of course, we’re going to split them among ourselves! 」

Kana-senpai told the girl.

「 Seriously, thanks 」

「 I’m glad I joined the tennis club 」

「 But, Mariko-san just went away before we know it 」

「 I didn’t get to thank her 」

Mariko went together with Erica, Marika, and her classmates, the Matsumoto siblings, back to the mansion first.

「 Geez, Mariko. You just went home without telling your best friend anything 」

Kana-senpai’s puffing.

「 Well, I’ll give her plenty of thanks later 」

「 Send her ours too, Kana-san 」

「 With that said, let’s take Mariko’s presents 」

Kana-senpai opens the box.

「 Okay, three boxes each, right? Have you girls picked what you want to take? 」

「 Yes, I already did 」

「 Then, we’re having a rock-paper-scissors tournament for those with the most picks. Then, let’s start with these lipsticks! Who wants these? 」

「 Me 」

「 Mememememe!!! 」

Yeah, I can let Kana-senpai take care of distributing Mariko’s presents.

「 That was fun, Nei-san 」

On the other hand, Saito Yuki-san and her manager, Fujimori-san are parting with Nei.

The two of them got along through Edie’s school swimsuit judo tournament.

I mean, she’s with her Manager, yet, they remained until this late.

「 Yeah, I’m happy to have met you Yuki-chan 」

Nei smiled.


「 Uhm, Natou-san 」

Fujimori-san speaks.

「 I asked earlier, but you’re not affiliated with any agency, right? 」

「 Yeah, I’m not in any talent agencies 」

Nei replied honestly.

「 Is that so? Well, uhm, every manager at the death star productions has a scout business card. 」

Fujimori-san brings out her business card.

「 It’s a waste for someone with such beauty and charm to not belong in any agency. If you don’t mind, do you want to join Death Star Productions? 」


「 Oh, that’s a good idea! Nei-san’s much more beautiful, quick-witted, and fun in conversations! You’re definitely fit for an idol! 」

Saito-san says happily.

「 Our talent agency is a big one so you don’t have to worry about weird stuff 」

「 It’s a women’s talent only in death star productions M&M Section F! 」

「 Eeeh? I wonder? 」

Nei sends me a glance.

Well, what to do indeed?

Death Star Production’s female talents, meaning, the M&M section F of their company.

That’ll become mine tomorrow.
