「F-Fujisato, what is the meaning of this?」
The time is close to midnight. The place is my own room.
My current situation? Being aggressively pushed down on the bed by Fujisato Yuika, one of my best friends and also the class representative for my class at school. Her intentions? Unknown, in need of confirmation. All I know is that she’s wearing plain clothes, I am being straddled by her, har pretty face is awfully close to mine and the sweet smell of her body tickles me in the nose.
In other words, I am in a situation that every normal, healthy high school boy would dream of being in, and it’s very stimulating. So much in fact that my face is so hot as if it was about to burst with flames.
「Fufufu, that’s the reaction I wanted to see, Monjiro-kun. So you like it when I straddle you like that? Does it make you feel like we’re in some raunchy adult movie? Because I certainly feel like that, and let me tell you…」
She then moved her face even closer and whispered directly into my ear:
「… I do not dislike that feeling.」
Combined with the sweet smell of her body, those words made me feel lightheaded as if I was intoxicated by Fujisato’s aura alone. Do all girls smell like that, or is this a phenomenon unique to only to Fujisato?
Even if I wanted to calm down now, there was absolutely no way for me to do so, not when someone as beautiful and seductive as her was within my arm’s reach.
Nevertheless, I have to push back my desire to embrace her before I end up hurting her in the worst way possible…
Think Jiro, Think goddamit! How did you end up in a situation such as this?!
I am sure we were having our strategy meeting today as usual. The topic, just like last time, was 「How to deal with Princess Kaguya, The 「Legendary Knight」 and Shiki」. We were discussing what we should do to defeat the 「Lord Above All Lords」, the real personality of Shiinamachi-senpai, my crush and Lord whom I failed to protect.
Up until recently I was one of her Knights who wielded the Gift of Immortality, 『Divine Gift Thanatos』. But it all came to an end at the end of summer vacation when she regained her lost memories which she lost three years ago, and with them her original personality, that of 「Princess Kaguya」. As for what happened to Shiinamachi-senpai I knew… I don’t know. I was told that it was gone, never to return, but I refused to believe that with my whole heart. I don’t want to acknowledge that the gentle, calm and innocent girl I knew will never grace me with her lovely smile ever again. I desperately wanted to believe that she was still out there somewhere, tucked away in the deepest recesses of senpai’s heart.
The same could be said about senpai’s other Knight and my trusted companion, Yatono Shiki. She disappeared together with awakened Kaguya, and I have not heard a word from her since then. Based on what she told me right before she left, from the very beginning she was the Knight of Kaguya, not Shiinamachi-senpai. I also learned that my meeting with her was not a chance one. It was all according to the plan conceived by Kaguya and my mother, Sakuradamon Yuto, who, as it recently turned out was the 「Legendary Knight」 all along. Me being raised as an emotionless killing machine, meeting her, getting close to her and falling in love with her? All of that was staged so that I could become her ultimate shield until the moment would come for her to regain her lost memories.
So apparently my whole life was never truly mine, since it was all meticulously planned from day one, and although lately some unpredictable factors sneaked into mother and Kaguya’s plan, for the most part it has proceeded without any major interruption. Even if it happened later than they have initially envisioned it, their ultimate goal has been fulfilled. Kaguya has regained her memories, eliminating Shiinamachi-senpai’s 「temporal personality」 in the process, my mother appeared before us and took her and Shiki away in order to perform a ritual that will restore her to her full power on the night of the full moon in September.
Both Kaguya and my mother told me to give up, that the senpai I once knew and loved is gone forever… but this is not the conclusion that I want to accept. I just can’t give up Shiinamachi-senpai that easily. So in order to save her, I turned for help to Fujisato Yuika, the 「Lord Killer」 and her Knight, Kuhoh Nagi, as well as Shiki’s cousin, Yahata Yugao and her younger sister, Yahata Yorugao, with whom I became acquainted when we came to the Yatono family’s mansion during the summer vacation. With all of them as my backup, we’re trying to come up with a plan on how to take senpai back.
That is the purpose of the meeting we are having on a regular basis ever since that dreadful day, and recently we have come up with something that might legitimately work, but right now…
「Is this your first time, Monjiro-kun? Fufufu, it’s going to be a first time for me as well, but don’t worry, I’ve made sure to study it a lot so I can take the lead…」
It’s late at night, Fujisato snuck into my room and pinned me down on my own bed. As far as my knowledge of these kind of situations goes, this could only mean one thing.
Even if Fujisato is a 「Lord Killer」, when she’s not using her Gifts to strengthen herself she was no different form an ordinary girl, so I could probably throw her off of me whenever I wanted. The thing is… I couldn’t do it. My body didn’t want to move the way I wanted to move it, as if it suddenly had a will of its own, and that will concluded that it was fine with this current turn of events.
「So how about it, Monjiro-kun? Want to… do it with me?」
Her voice was seductive yet calm, but the way her body fidgeted on me reveled that she was anxiously waiting for my answer.
I have never seen her acting in such a way before, but to be truthful, this is the first time when we are physically this close to one another. All my previous interactions with her were that of close friends, but now…
It definitely won’t be an exaggeration to call Fujisato the most popular girl in our school, among both boys and girls. Of course, Shiinamachi-senpai, Shiki and Kuhoh were also popular, but out of the four of them Fujisato was the only one who possessed that idolish nature which allowed her to instantly befriend pretty much anyone she ever talked to without hesitation. Her beauty and grades were both top notch, so much so that most guys felt unworthy to even stand next to her. Even if she was not a normal human being, everyone adored her and looked up to her. If I had a five-yen coin for every guy who fantasized about doing 「it」 with her, I would have more money than I’d know what to do with them.
And now, the very same girl who everyone adores as a school idol is, to borrow the words of a certain 「off-brand」 manga’s protagonist (TL Note: Nanase Mizuho’s My Bride is a Demon Lord, for those of you who are interested) riding me like some kinda…
「Aaaaaaah~~, you’re so mean, Monjiro-kun. Leaving a girl hanging like that. Can’t you see that I’m getting all hot and bothered here as well?」
「Y-Yeah, I can certainly feel tha… no, I-I mean see… no, wait, that’s not what I…」
How could I not feel the heat radiating off of her when our bodies were so close to each other that it was increasingly difficult for me to think straight?!
「Yes, what do you mean then? Don’t worry, there is no need to rush. We’ll just take it nice and slow since the night is still young.」
「R-Right, if you say so. Then… what I wanted to say, Fujisato, is that I really like you…」
「You like me…?」
「……As a friend.」 (TL Note: WTF dude?! You had ONE! JOB HERE!)
