Pure Love ✕ Insult Complex - Chapter 1389. School Festival Day 2 / Lunchtime
Chapter 1389. School Festival Day 2 / Lunchtime
「 Excuse me, I’m going to the track and field club now 」
Megu comes out from the break room and tells us.
Megu ate the lunch box Motoko and Kurumi made for us first.
「 You were in a hurry, how was the taste? 」
Katsuko-nee looked at Megu and asked.
「 It was delicious, as expected of Motoko-san and Kurumi-san 」
Megu must have some mixed emotions about it since Motoko and Kurumi have taken over the kitchen before she knew it.
But since Katsuko-nee allows it, Megu has no say with Motoko and Kurumi.
「 Then, I’m going now, it’s about to reach 1 pm 」
Captain Takeshiba told Megu to focus on helping in the bakery until the afternoon.
「 Yeah, take care 」
「 Oh right, we also have a closing party today. You guys do folk dancing, right? 」
The junior from the tennis club who’s helping out says with a smile.
Folk dance, what kind?
「 I still haven’t decided 」
Megu replies with a blushing face.
「 Eeh? You should dance. Since you and Baker-kun are officially recognized by the school, the closing party won’t be fun if you two don’t dance 」
「 Yes, that. Folk dancing is a tradition at our school 」
Another tennis girl said.
I don’t know what’s going on but, it’s a tradition to folk dance at the closing party?
「 A-Anyway, I’m going now 」
Megu runs off the bakery in a hurry.
I look at the clock and it’s five minutes before one.
Can she make it to the track and field in time if she runs?
「 I’m sure that the crowds on the cafe terrace will ease considerably 」
Katsuko-nee glanced at the monitor outside and said.
「 Look, it’s close to one o’clock, and the tables are starting to open up 」
True, there are fewer customers than before
「 Well, we know that this would happen 」
「 You know, there will be presentations from various clubs in the gym later in the afternoon so everyone will come to watch that 」
Right, today’s the last day of the school festival.
「 In most of the culture clubs, their goal is to make their presentation at the school festival 」
「 Clubs like ours don’t have big official tournaments 」
「 Those who want to show off the results of their daily training to their family would only have the opportunity to do that during the school festival 」
The tennis girls said.
「 So it’s no wonder that the customers will decrease 」
Nei’s been in the school for three years already so she had three school festivals already.
But the teachers under Shirasaka Sousuke’s control had been hanging around the school until last year so I guess she only watched the school festival on the cameras.
「 Besides, Natou-senpai, there’s also a concert this afternoon in the auditorium 」
「 Oh, there will be spectators there 」
「 Kadota-senpai, a senior of the men’s tennis club would be on the show 」
「 Oh? Kadota can play musical instruments? 」
The juniors from the tennis club laughed.
「 Ah, but you know, I think most of the popular people over there dropped out 」
Nei said. But we did that.
If I recall the band name was HG5 or MG5, either way, they tried to make fun of Megu.
So Tsukiko used her Miko power to make them drop out of school.
「 That aside, it seems that they have new people this year 」
「 It seems a lot of girls will be checking if there are any cool seniors out there 」
「 I don’t get them 」
「 It’s kind of stupid to see some band popular only in our school 」
「 I mean, it’s bad enough that they’re screaming for the boys in our school 」
「 Yep, bad, definitely 」
The tennis girls gossip around.
「 But, I feel like it’s better to scream for a guy who’s just a bit good looking and can play musical instruments somewhere closer to you than someone far away, like those on the TV 」
Katsuko-nee said with a smile while continuing her work with the oven.
「 I don’t like something that easy 」
「 Me too~ 」
「 Eeh? Didn’t you say that you like Shigeta from the Sankumi? He’s playing in a band today 」
「 That’s not me, Kiyomi’s the one who said that he’s good 」
「 Oh, really? 」
The tennis girls are having that conversation, when…
「 Man, I’m so full 」
「 I mean, Megumi-neesan ate too fast. That’s bad for her digestion. 」
Eri and Rie come out from the break room.
Haiji, Mitama, and Kinuka too.
「 We got fewer customers now, so we’re going to bring in some customers! 」
「 Customers! 」
Why are they so enthusiastic about this?
Well, the true nature of these sisters is more akin to a comedian than a bodyguard.
「 We’re also starting our talk show 」
「 Yeah, we still have a lot of remaining customers 」
The twins are also motivated.
「 Don’t push yourselves too hard, give priority to Eri and Rie’s talk show, Mitama and Kinuka can support them. Haiji, go with them 」
Mitama and Kinuka are specialized in attacking so it’s better to have Haiji go with them since she’s cautious and has no gaps.
「 Roger that 」
The twins and the girls went out.
「 Why are those girls listening to what Baker-kun tells them? 」
The tennis girls look at me curiously.
「 That aside, we’re already past the peak of ours so we can now take turns and eat our lunch while we still have time 」
Katsuko-nee tries to change the topic in a hurry.
「 Let’s see, what about the tennis girls? 」
「 Well…Hoshizaki-senpai hasn’t given out her instructions so we’re… 」
Kana-senpai’s the leader of the tennis club.
They can’t take breaks without permission unless they’re told to do so.
Also, we’ve been busy since morning.
The turns on breaks might get messed up.
「 I’ll bring the next batch out, and while at it, should I ask Kana-senpai? 」
I ask while putting the freshly baked pastries on the pad.
At that moment, the back door of the bakery slammed open.
「 You girls can take a break, we’re swapping in 」
Four tennis girls came in to switch.
Oh, that’s great.
「 Kana made up a new rotating shift, so everyone will be in it for the rest of the day 」
「 Go back to the cafe and look at the shift schedule. If you find it inconvenient, then talk to Kana and ask her to switch the shifts 」
The two of the girls who will be swapping said.
「 Okay, senpai, then we’re going first 」
「 Oh, we’re carrying this pad over there for you instead 」
One of the tennis girls who’s heading for her break sees the pad I finished filling and said.
「 If you’re carrying that there, then I’ll ask you to pass along this message to Kana for me 」
Katsuko-nee told her.
「 Come back at 1:30. Tell them not to take lunch until then 」
Oh, Motoko and Kurumi’s lunch box.
Kana-senpai also has their share.
「 Okay, I’ll tell her 」
Four people who had been helping us so far brought the pads outside.
「 And so, for the newcomers, help me do my job, Dear, take on the oven 」
「 Okay, Katsuko-nee 」
「 Then, Ai-chan and Mana-chan can eat lunch in the break room 」
「 Is it okay taking out two so suddenly? 」
Mana asks Katsuko-nee.
「 Yomi will fill for you two 」
Yomi comes in from the break room.
「 Who? 」
The tennis girls are surprised by the sudden appearance of a big titty loli, but…
「 Don’t mind it~! 」
Yomi used her Miko powers to make them ignore her.
「 Oh well 」
「 Yeah, it doesn’t matter 」
The tennis girls accepted Yomi right away.
「 Then, Yomi-chan will help the tennis girls form the shape, and dear can take charge of the oven 」
I’m the one doing the baking, Katsuko-nee will be guiding the tennis girls.
「 Then, we’ll eat our lunch 」
「 We’re going 」
Mana and Ai went to the break room.
◇ ◇ ◇
「 I’m here 」
Kana-senpai entered the bakery at 1:30.
「 Okay, switch! 」
「 Thanks for the meal! 」
Mana and Ai came out of the break room at the same time.
They must’ve seen from the monitor that Kana-senpai’s coming.
「 Okay, Kana-sen, Nei, and Dear, you can take a break 」
Katsuko-nee told me.
「 What about you Katsuko-nee? 」
「 I’ll go next 」
「 But, I have an appointment at 2 」
「 I know, that’s why I want to make as much pastry as possible while at it 」
Katsuko-nee says while kneading the dough
「 I think that the number of customers will increase again by 3:30. That’s why I’m preparing for it 」
「 Those who finished their…activities presenting their club…will bring their families…and come to eat 」
「 That’s why I want to continue working for a while 」
「 No, that just means that Katsuko-nee can’t eat at all 」
There’s no next time.
「 Don’t mind me. I’m in charge of the place 」
「 That’s not an excuse, Katsuko-oneechan 」
「 That’s right, Katsuko-san 」
Mana and Ai told Katsuko-nee.
「 Mana can give instructions to the tennis girls 」
「 Ai can look after the oven 」
「 I’m not good at baking yet but I can help out 」
Yomi smiled at Katsuko-nee.
「 Then, I’ll also stay, I’ll eat lunch after Katsuko-oneechan comes back. With this number, we can do it right 」
Lastly, Nei told Katsuko-nee.
「 Girls… 」
「 Yeah, we should eat lunch properly, they made us lunch boxes so I feel sorry for Motoko and Kurumi if we don’t eat it 」
I told her too.
「 Let’s go, Katsuko-san 」
Kana-senpai urged Katsuko-nee.
「 Okay. Then, I’ll leave the place to you girls for a while 」
Katsuko-nee gives in.
「 We got this! 」
「 You don’t have to worry 」
「 We’ll do our best! 」
「 Take it slow so you don’t choke on the food 」
I’ll leave it to Mana, Ai, Yomi, and Nei, then Kana-senpai, Katsuko-nee, and I entered the break room.
◇ ◇ ◇
「 Kou, I’ve been waiting 」
Mariko, Tsukiko, and Kurose Anju are in the room.
「 Huh, you three haven’t eaten lunch yet? 」
They already have their lunch box, yet the three of them haven’t touched it yet.
「 We want to eat together with Kou 」
「 Oh? I thought you were waiting for me, your ‘best friend’? 」
Speaking of which, Mariko had been telling the tennis girls that she’s “Kana’s best friend”
「 I’ve been waiting for Kana too, here’s your lunch. I saw Yomi-chan and the girls eat earlier, and it’s amazing 」
Mariko hands us our lunch boxes.
「 I’ll prepare tea 」
Tsukiko went to make tea.
「 Let’s see, wow, fancy 」
Kana-senpai opened the lunch box and got surprised by the contents.
Well, it’s a Japanese-style square bento.
The inside is divided into small sections and it contains a variety of side dishes.
These are all some amazing food.
It looks beautiful.
「 Motoko-oneesama made this lunch box 」
Mariko is Motoko’s junior in the school.
Mariko’s in her first year, and Motoko’s in her second.
「 Ufufu, I never thought of the day I would call her Motoko-oneesama instead of Motoko-sama would come, even though we know each other since childhood 」
「 Oh, the spear lady is great at cooking 」
「 When it comes to Japanese food, Motoko-san and Kurumi-san are better than me 」
Katsuko-nee opened her lunch box and said.
「 Motoko-san also made one for everyone in the tennis club, but… 」
Tsukiko brews the tea.
「 She can’t make such a carefully crafted lunch for them. Like, making a box for all of them 」
「 Don’t mind it, most of the girls brought their lunch boxes from home, and we should keep such wonderful lunch boxes for the family 」
「 Kana-senpai, you didn’t prepare your lunch? 」
「 I didn’t bring anything from home, I know that there would be something prepared here anyway. The girls at the mansion will surely make one 」
Kana-senpai’s blended in as a member of the family.
「 You should come here too 」
Mariko calls Kurose Anju who’s watching over the monitors.
「 Y-Yes, but… 」
「 There’s someone in the mansion watching too so you can eat lunch 」
She’s a bit of an eager girl, but she’s still not accustomed to our methods.
「 I talked to her, and she’s a good one, Kou 」
Mariko looked at Kurose Anju and smiled.
「 It makes me want to take her as my bodyguard, Haiji seems to be more comfortable with other girls than with me 」
「 Unfortunately, but she will be his personal bodyguard 」
Katsuko-nee told Mariko.
「 But Kou already has Edie-san as his bodyguard, right? 」
「 Edie-chan’s going to America by the end of the year. Besides, she stands out a lot, right? That’s why we needed a girl who looks normal 」
「 There’s Mitama and Kinuka, but those girls are more of a fighter than a bodyguard in many ways 」
「 I think that Mitama-chan and her as a duo would be great as one’s the attacker, and the other is on the lookout 」
Katsuko-nee and I explained.
「 Oh, I see it now 」
「 Mariko, you stayed here since earlier? 」
「 Yes, I was here with her and Tsukiko-san 」
Kana-senpai asks, Mariko answers while looking at Tsukiko and Kurose Anju.
「 Many people entered and left the room, but I’ve been watching everyone on the monitors here while chatting with Tsukiko-san 」
「 Don’t you feel bored just watching? I’m not asking you to help out in the shop, but you could’ve looked at the stalls at the school festival 」
「 Can’t go outside. Kou will get worried, also, I can’t just ask to have a bodyguard accompany me at this time 」
Today, the young ladies of nobility are banned from coming to our school due to security reasons.
Mariko’s not a daughter of nobility, but she’s still the daughter of the president of Torii Electronics, a leading Japanese company.
Furthermore, Mariko used that fact to have the tennis girls put faith in her.
She can’t just go outside carelessly./
「 Besides, I’m having fun watching here. It’s so different from our school festival 」
「 Is it that different? 」
「 Yes, we don’t allow students to open food and beverage stalls in our school. Only presentations of the club’s accomplishments
I guess refreshment booths are impossible for the young lady school.
「 Rather, the only opportunity for us to present our club achievements is through the school festival. Our school doesn’t have tournaments and such 」
「 What do you mean? 」
「 It’s for the protection of the young ladies of nobility, even the athletic teams don’t play games against each other 」
I tell Kana-senpai what I heard from Misuzu and Ruriko.
「 Oh, I get it. People from other schools get involved with the ladies if there’s a tournament or something. I know that since weird boys approached me during the tennis prefectural tournament 」
「 Oh, Kana got picked up? 」
Mariko’s also a sheltered girl so she’s interested in that kind of story.
「 They do that a lot. I’m a beauty after all 」
Kana-senpai’s said to be the prettiest among the sophomores.
「 What do you do when they try to call you? 」
「 Nothing. I just tell them some random thing and leave them, I’m Nobu’s sex slave after all. All the other men are just trash to me 」
Kana-senpai, that’s an exaggeration.
「 I love that part of Kana. I agree, it’s nonsense to deal with men other than Kou. Ufufu 」
「 What’s up, Mariko? 」
Kana-senpai asks Mariko as she suddenly laughs.
「 Whether it’s me, or Kana, or Tsukiko-san or Katsuko-san, we all feel happy knowing tht Kou loves us 」
「 Yes, I can feel it. Like, being fellow sex slaves, or rather, the girls who have sex with Nobu is family 」
「 Yes, just watching Kou work hard at the monitor makes my heart throb 」
「 Oh, I get that 」
「 Besides, other girls are coming to help Kou out, right? Seeing that makes me happy, furthermore, they’re all doing it for Kou 」
「 Yeah, they do. Katsuko-san, Nei-san, Mana-chan, Ai, Edie-san, and me 」
「 Also, Haiji, Mitama-san, Kinuka-san, Rie-san, Eri-san, Tsukiko-san, Yomiko-san. 」
「 They’re all girls who had sex with Nobu 」
「 Yes, it’s our sisterhood, our family 」
Mariko said, then Kana-senpai looked at Kurose Anju.
「 Nobu, you got this girl yesterday, did you do it with her already? 」
She’s asking whether I already had sex with Kurose Anju or not.
「 Not yet, or should I say, Kana-senpai, we’re eating 」
「 Why not? I’m curious. Still, you haven’t done it with her yet 」
Kana-senpai said. Mariko;
「 Kana, you don’t get it. If she had sex with Kou, then she would be closer already. You didn’t figure it out from the mood? 」
「 Oh you’re right, if she’s done it already, then Nobu would even be more gentle with her 」
「 We’ve been busy in the mansion since we returned. 」
「 I see. Oh well. Call me when you’re going to do it with her okay? I want to watch 」
「 Oh, I want to do that too! 」
Kana-senpai and Mariko sure get along.
「 I don’t mind, but… 」
「 You don’t mind it, do you? 」
「 Of course! We’re going to be your big sisters soon! 」
Mariko and Kana-senpai approached Kurose Anju
「 Eh? Uhm, I-I… 」
Kurose Anju’s confused.
She’s not ready to have sex with me yet.
「 Here, tea 」
Tsukiko distributes tea to everyone.
That calms the place down.
「 Well then, why don’t we start? 」
「 Yeah, let’s eat 」
「 Let’s eat 」
We started eating lunch.
「 By the way, Kou, you’re going to meet with Erica-san and Jasmin, right? 」
「 Jasmin? Oh, the piano girl, Marika-san 」
Kana-senpai says while drinking tea.
Marika seems to mean Jasmine in English.
That’s why some in our family call Marika Jasmine.
「 She only comes to the mansion on weekends so I’ve only seen her about twice 」
Marika’s attending a music school dorm so she doesn’t come to the mansion during weekdays.
「 Me too, our free days don’t seem to match up 」
Mariko and Kana-senpai are both going home after all.
They only stay in the mansion a few days a week.
Mariko’s parents willingly allow her to stay overnight because it’ll strengthen her relationship with the Kouzuki house.
In Kana-senpai’s case, she’s from an ordinary family so it’s rare for her to stay at the mansion.
「 But, she’s quiet and lovely, her sister Erica-san is bright and cheerful, so they’re a bit off 」
Kana-senpai compares Erica and Marika.
「 So, Kou, when you meet with Jasmine, take us with you 」
「 Everyone in the mansion knows that I’m here today, right? 」
Well, they should.
I mean, the girls are probably hearing the conversation in here.
「 I just received a mail from Erica. She wants us to go and meet them 」
「 Nobu, what did Jasmine tell you? 」
Kana-senpai asks me.
「 Well, she only asked me to meet her since she’ll introduce her friend 」
「 Hmm. I’m sure that there’s a catch there 」
I know that too.
That meek Marika went all the way from her school to bring her friends to our school festival.
She has a reason for that.
「 I have to stay at the cafe until the end of the day so Mariko, you help Nobu for me 」
「 I got this, Kana 」
Kana-senpai and Mariko smiled at each other.
「 Then, we can a threesome later 」
「 Anytime. Kou and I will make Kana cry in pleasure 」
「 No, you’re the one who’s going to cry in pleasure 」
The two sure get along.
