After returning to the royal castle, I was able to change clothes before Femia grabbed onto my hand and dragged me to meet Princess Lakshu.
Rose and Claudia went to take a bath once we returned. Considering I died, I probably should’ve taken one as well, but…at least I was able to change my clothes.
But I still have my Feminist skill at rank S, so once the maid grabbed onto my hand I couldn’t do anything to resist.
Then, Femia brought me to Princess Lakshu’s room.
“Pardon me, Princess Lakshu.”
Femia opened the door without waiting for Lakshu’s reply.
“Femia? Are you back already? I haven’t finished changing yet; can you wait before…entering….”
Princess Lakshu was holding a dress up in only her underwear.
Of course, this would happen.
She didn’t expect her maid to enter without waiting for her reply, and I’m sure she never expected her maid to have a man with her.
“I’m so sorry, Princess Lakshu! I wasn’t thinking!”
Femia bowed her head over and over and tried to back out of the room. Lakshu’s face turned bright red.
She took in a deep breath and —
…fine? Not ‘kyaa?’
Lakshu then moved the dress to the side and said, “Finally, you’ve decided to do shame play! Thank you very much, Master!”
…you shouldn’t be saying that, Princess.
…well, I do like shame play.
But, I just like a little thrill. The thrill I’d get from Claudia threatening to cut it off or from the King ordering my execution would be too much for me.
So, in order to save myself, I averted my eyes.
“P-Princess Lakshu, please hurry up!”
“Yes, I’ll take off my underwear right away!”
“No, don’t take off anything else!”
What’s with this sudden comedic development…? No, this is more of an H scene. It’s hard to resist staring.
For the time being, I turned away and tried to tell her I’d wait outside until she was dressed.
“Please wait, Master.”
Lakshu ran forward and placed her hand on my shoulder.
I need to leave before Lakshu makes any masochistic demands of me.
“Master, please wait. Something must have happened to cause Femia to be so distracted.”
“No, really, that’s not –”
“– You’re right. It’s a very important matter.”
Femia cut me off and declared this.
“If Femia says so then it must be serious. I’ll get dressed. Please, stay here and tell me, Master.”
Lakshu’s tone suddenly changed. I thought Lakshu was just a masochist who couldn’t resist her own desires but maybe there’s a part of her that’s a proper princess.
“Even though she says it’s an important matter, I was just dragged here by Femia.”
“Femia, what happened?”
I answered with my back still turned to Lakshu before she asked Femia for an explanation.
“Of course. When I introduced Yuzuki-sama to the spirit of the sanctuary, Alumis-sama became a yandere.”
“Wha -!? Alumis-sama turned into a yandere!?”
Lakshu was completely taken aback.
I was surprised too when the spirit became a yandere, but it’s become an everyday occurrence for me to turn someone into a yandere. I didn’t think much of it….
If I think about it, she was a spirit that guarded a sanctuary dedicated to the Goddess that rules over this world. It really is something amazing.
“How is that…possible?”
“She became yandere after meeting Yuzuki-sama….”
“Master…. That’s right. You do possess a skill that is constantly trying to activate the yandere trait of anyone you come into contact with.”
I was afraid they’d blame me for turning her into a yandere and try to punish me but that didn’t seem to be the case.
“So I’m sure you’re wondering….”
“– yes. If Alumis-sama became a yandere, why is Master here? Wouldn’t Alumis-sama try to do everything possible to keep him with her?”
“That’s what I wished to tell you. I do wish to tell you, Princess Lakshu, but…I’m not sure it’s my place to say.”
“I see. So she did try to capture Master. I understand…and you can turn around now.”
I turned around to see Lakshu wearing a pale dress…that exposed a lot of cleavage.
Should I point it out or pretend like I didn’t notice? Lakshu is actually acting serious so I shouldn’t do anything that might change that.
Lakshu sat down on a sofa and motioned for me to sit across from her. I walked over to her and took a seat. Now that I’m closer to her, I can clearly see down her dress.
“Haa~…n~ Master lustful stare….”
— she knew all along!?
I wanted to avoid this. I need to change the subject, but there’s no chance Lakshu’s going to forget that I was just staring at her chest.
“…Master, if you wish, you can train me to your liking.”
“Princess Lakshu, this isn’t the time for this. Yuzuki-sama still has to tell you –”
Lakshu interrupted Femia before she could finish.
“I wasn’t there with you Femia, but I can ask him this: do you wish to keep what happened there secret, Master?”
“Well, yes, I do, but….”
“Then, I won’t force you to tell me. It’s easier than me asking you to tell me and forcing you to come up with a lie or an excuse not to tell me.”
Princess Lakshu is a perverted masochistic girl, but once again, I’m reminded that she’s a proper princess.
“So, if you don’t wish to tell me, we should instead spend the time training me. In fact, please train me!”
She started off serious but went on to say some unnecessary things at the end. No, I should just tell her everything that happened. If I keep trying to avoid it, she’ll just keep trying tog et me to train her….
Femia wants to tell her anyway. There’s no guarantee that once I leave she won’t tell Lakshu.
Even if I keep silent, Lakshu will find out anyway. It would be better if I were the one to tell her.
“Actually…when Alumis turned into a yandere she attacked me in an attempt to capture me.”
“But you managed to escape…. Is that all that happened?”
“Not exactly. She had captured Rose and Claudia so I had to fight back.”
“No way, that’s…impossible. Alumis is a follower of Goddess Medea. It’s impossible for a normal human to harm her. How could you possibly fight her off — You don’t mean?”
I guess she got her answer. Even though it’s just a guess, she still can’t believe it —
“I have Goddess Medea’s blessing.”
“Goddess Medea’s blessing…really? And you were able to fight off Alumis?”
“Do you believe me?”
“There’s never been anyone else that possesses her blessing, but if you do have her blessing it would explain how you were able to fight against her.”
…I see. So there’s never been another case of someone possessing Medea-nee’s blessing.
On top of Medea-nee’s blessing, I have many other dangerous titles. What should I do if she asks to see my status window…
“But…if you have Goddess Medea’s Blessing and To Be Loved To Death By Yanderes at rank SSS, you must convert most people you meet into yanderes.”
“Yeah…that’s right. Claudia is the only girl around me that isn’t yandere.”
In fact, I don’t think there are many people that I know that aren’t yandere. There’s the Guild Master and…umm, well…Femia isn’t yandere.
…yep, almost everyone I know is yandere.
“Isn’t Claudia…your slave? She must be around you all the time. How isn’t she yandere?”
“Oh, her yandere resistance is rank S….”
As soon as the words left my mouth I regretted saying anything. If it’s just Femia and Lakshu that know it shouldn’t be an issue.
I told them, “Please, keep that a secret.” As long as they do it should be fine.
“Yeah, I think that would be for the best. It would be bad if my older brother knew such a beautiful girl had such high yandere resistance.”
“…I’ll keep that in mind.”
I need to remember to watch what I say.
“Master, you said you fought off Alumis. What’s happened to her? I assume things were settled at the sanctuary since I haven’t heard any news of fighting elsewhere.”
“Oh, actually that’s –”
Just as I started speaking, there was a sudden commotion outside the room.
“This is Princess Lakshu’s room. Even if it is you, Rose-sama, you have to wait to be allowed in!”
“Get out of my way. I have urgent business with Princess Lakshu. Princess Lakshu, I know you can hear me! Yuzuki onii-san is in there, right!? I have to talk to him!”
Lakshu instructed Femia to let Rose in.
Femia opened the door and said, “Please, calm down, Rose-sama. You may come in.”
As soon as Femia said this, Rose ran into the room. Seeing how flustered she looked I was afraid of what she may say.
“It’s terrible! Claudia was forcibly taken by Harold!”
It was the worst thing that could’ve happened.
