Chapter 133 Hostile Intent

Edited by: Kanaa-senpai

 As it was, Hana would have become Kaito’s follower, his property

 The reason why this did not happen is because of her nature to take pleasure in taking other people’s things. From there, she turned her attention to his sister Maria and tried to steal her heart

 As a result, she was attracted to Maria and not to Kaito – until now, after the death of her parents and the meeting with her adoptive parent

 [Hmm. This Kaito is, in short, a Master, isn’t he? And an overwhelming one too. I think that would be a good match for Maria-chan]

 But Maria shook her head at Suzu’s question

 [I have no suicidal thoughts. But certainly, it would have been an absolute pleasure for me to be my brother’s. In fact, he once invited me to do so. But to be his is to leave everything to him. In other words, I’m killing myself]

 Maria is a masochist

 She seeks pleasure to the end, and for that she seeks a master

 But she is not so broken that she is willing to die if it makes her feel good. No, she is so broken that she thinks, “I’m not satisfied unless I can live and feel better for a longer period of time”

 So she denies her brother and seeks Master separately

 A Master who would not let her live and die as she is, but would gently dominate her

 After hearing this, Kaito understood Maria’s wish

 He then used his contacts to find a potential master for Maria, thinking that her own sister might not be so appealing to him

 Still, he did not feel so good to have his sister taken by another man

 Therefore, he offered Maria to enroll in Shibatsuru Academy for a while as a condition. Whether she changes her mind and becomes his property or not, it would be all right

 But there seems to have been a problem of the search period in this exchange

 Because there is multiple factors that are not absolute, such as being male and close in age to Maria and being a [Lost Item], and the essential condition is to understand her proclivities. So, it was difficult to find such a convenient partner

 As for why it was difficult to find it because Chihiro, who was now Maria’s master, only attended an ordinary middle school before entering high school

 In addition, he did not engage in any activities that were typical for a [Lost Item], and only took the ability test a few times a year

 So, at that stage, the only way to get information about him would have been to access the government database, and he was finally discovered after he entered Shibahou Academy

 Several months before Maria’s transfer to Shibahou Academy, she had to go through the procedures, sign a contract for an apartment, and soundproof her bedroom. That is why she transferred at such a sensitive time

 [My brother is the one who pays for the apartment and my living expenses. So, naturally, Ibusuki Kaname knew where I lived, and to some extent he knew about Izumi-kun]

 […Maria and your brother are both, how can I say this, amazing]

 [I’m sorry. This must not be interesting for you, Aika]

 [No, no, no. If Maria had not met Chihiro-kun, I would have remained classmates with Chihiro-kun. So, I’d rather thank you for that]

 The Master which Maria chose after denying himself

 It was almost inevitable that Kaito would take an interest in Chihiro

 For the note, if Chihiro had been satisfied with Maria alone, Kaito might not have made a move

 But because Chihiro had several girls by his side, and consequently, he caught Kaito’s attention

 At this, Yotsuba then voiced a question

 [Did Maria not expect this? If Master has more slaves, it will happen sooner or later]

 [I have to admit that in the past I didn’t think he had that much interest…. And even if I could have foreseen this event, I would not have the right to control Master’s desire]

 It is too selfish to try to make only herself feel good, and as a result, Chihiro gained experience as a Master by having more people to hold

 Besides, without Riko and Aika, Maria would not have become what she is today

 [I’m sorry, Chihiro-sama. I would have preferred not to tell you about this. Besides, I’m no longer attached to my brother and I was planning to cut off contact with him as soon as I could find a way to support myself]

 [That’s okay. I know Maria didn’t mean to deceive me]

 The fact that it was hidden did not make things worse

 Rather, what could Chihiro do if he had known about it? If anything, the worst thing he could have done was to have violated Ibusuki Kaname, who visited the school festival

 [As I said before, his way is quite different from Izumi-kun’s. He is the type of person who easily discards a girl he owns when he gets tired of her or when she is no longer of any use to him. Even Ibusuki-san was just a pawn in his scheme of things]

 [But that’s an excuse to do something, isn’t it? Chihiro-kun, what if he does something?]

 [Of course, we’ll find the best way. We’ll try to keep things as normal as possible… so that everyone can stay safe. If necessary, we have no choice but to fight against [Absolute]]

 ”Huh…” Riko sighs

 ”But you know what? Fighting is a bit of a dangerous thing to do, isn’t it?”

 ”Fufu. It’s strange to hear Riko say that”

 ”I’m serious. Well, I don’t deny it”

 A girl who used to beat and kick Chihiro

 Back then, Riko might even consider killing others to fulfill her self-esteem

 But now, she is not as fierce as she was then

 ”Don’t worry. As I said before, if they wanted to, we would have been crushed by now. I think the fight is mainly about negotiation and bargaining”

 Although this does not apply to inter-school competitions

 Still, it is unlikely that Chihiro will be sent to a simple fistfight. Since the fights are conducted by a third party according to the rules, it is unlikely that there will be any cheating

 If possible, he does not want any violence

 But if they intend to harm him, they must be aware that they are of a lower rank

 ”Don’t worry”

 Suzu chuckled

 ”Chihiro-kun will be fine”

 ”You say that so easily again…”

 ”I’m not just saying that. Chihiro-kun now, he wouldn’t be easily defeated in a normal fight, would he?”

 ”Oh… wasn’t that great? By the way, I haven’t heard it properly yet”

 Chihiro’s new ability

 He has been putting it off because things have been hectic and it is not an urgent topic. But now he can explain it

 [Stimulus Amplification] and [Stimulus Sharing]

 The abilities that were acquired at the same time – or to be more precise, the abilities that turned out to have been acquired. Regarding this, Chihiro had some questions

 ”Suzu-san, these abilities are probably not really used for fighting, are they?”

 ”That’s right, Chihiro-kun. I think so, too”

 Suzu nodded

 However, some of the people in the room look as if they are not sure

 Riko, Aika, and Hana, representing those who were not convinced, opened their mouths. Their eyebrows also wrinkled

 ”Don’t tell me, is it used for night time activities?”

 ”Hana-chan is right”

 ”I knew it,” Hana muttered

 Suzu then looked at her with a proud smile and continued

 ”It would be strange if it wasn’t so. …because those two abilities must be what Yotsuba and I want”
