Atelier Tanaka Volume 3 Chapter 3 Part 7
We were able to rescue Allen and safely returned to the dorm.
“Ah. W-Welcome back!”
Ester-chan was still waiting in my room.
I looked around for her entourage but saw no sign of them. Sophichan was the only one here besides Ester-chan. Regrettable.
By the way, I parted with Mercedes-chan once we left the slums. A lot had happened today and she was tired, so she’s returned to the Order. There was also no reason in particular for her to come back with me.
“What a relief. Allen, your safe.”
“Sorry, Ester. I caused so much trouble for you all.”
The lolibitch looked relieved when she saw Allen was unharmed. I’m sure that her concern for Allen is the only reason she’s still here. I’m not sure exactly how to describe it, but she seems happy from the bottom of her heart.
When I saw her react like this, I wondered if she regretted abandoning Allen. However, my virgin mind was unable to understand a girl’s feelings. She’ll probably return to the ikemen soon anyway, just like I expected.
As I was thinking this, I noticed her eyes had moved from the ikemen back to my ugly face.
“Thank you. Because of you, I didn’t lose an important friend.”
“It wasn’t just me. Mercedes-chan helped too.”
“I’ll have to thank her too. Was it hard on you?”
She looked up at me with her eyes dazzling.
When I thought back on what happened in that abandoned house, I felt a little sorry for Ester-chan. She was worried about Allen yet he was being pleasured by a beautiful woman. I’m still envious of him.
“Umm, i-in order to save me, Tanaksan had to make a difficult choice.”
Allen unexpectedly spoke up.
The difficult choice he’s referring to is probably me choosing not to join up with the other escapees. It seems that he thinks this is the only reason he’s alive.
“It was my decision to make.”
“But such a thing wouldn’t have.”
“How about we both make an agreement. Saying anything to anyone about what happened today won’t help either of us. I promise that I won’t tell anyone what I saw or heard in that house. Will you do the same?”
“Yes, I understand!”
He gave me a big nod.
I guess he is embarrassed about what happened.
I’d be proud.
A beautiful woman tied him up and had her way with him.
“I-I’m guessing I shouldn’t ask.”
“I’m sorry. This is a secret between men.”
I was trying to avoid Ester-chan hearing us but she was able to pick up on a few of our words and guess what we were talking about. However, it wouldn’t do Allen any good if someone found out about what that robed woman did to him and I’ll happily use this to keep him quiet.
What happened in that house should stay between us. It can never come out.
“If that’s how it is, I-I guess it can’t be helped.”
“Sorry, Ester. I really don’t want to keep a secret from you.”
“I don’t really mind. I have a few things I’ve never told you about.”
There are times when Ester-chan really can’t show any tact.
I actually felt sorry for Allen for a moment.
But then I felt that familiar sense of superiority once more.
Then, the living room door suddenly opened.
Sophie had entered the room with steam coming off her body. She was completely naked except for a small towel wrapped around her body. Her hair was still wet and it and her towel clung to her body.
“I’m coming in.”
The towel was just barely covering her chest and I could almost make out the edge of her nipple. On top of this, even with the towel on a lot of her thighs were still exposed. If the towel is moved slightly up, I’ll be able to see more than just her thighs and if it’s moved down, I’ll be able to see her chest. It’s making me so excited.
“Hey, p-put on your clothes!”
“I thought it would just be you and that maid. I figured you wouldn’t mind.”
“Sophia and I don’t want to see you naked!”
This bitch. She definitely heard Allen and came out dressed like that on purpose. She should’ve been able to hear my voice to and yet she still came out dressed like that. Not that I care about this nonvirgin.
“What’s going on here so late at night?”
There’s no reason for this girl to come to my room without a reason.
Rather, recently, I’ve started to feel like my dorm has become a place to hang out for everyone.
I don’t mind. Pretty girls make me happy.
“I heard that you were granted the title of baron recently.”
“Oh, you heard about that?”
Though, I haven’t actually received it yet.
“I came to celebrate.”
“Well, if that’s all, thank you but we’re really busy.”
It seems that this time she’s saying she’s here for me instead of Allen.
So she came running the moment she heard I was going to get a position amongst the nobility. Well, she’s going to be disappointed. Even though I’ve been promised that position, I’d say I’m still far from actually getting it. That old Prime Minister is up to something and I don’t expect it to go smoothly.
“You came to celebrate but you didn’t bring anything?”
Ester-chan spoke up.
Maybe she’s still not over Sophie-chan sleeping with Allen without her.
“I did bring something.”
“then, where is it?”
Could this be what I’m imagining? This is a celebration for me. Is she going to drop the towel and wrap her naked body around me? The fabled naked bitch bomb. It’s something I was hoping to experience at least once before I die.
“I gave it to that maid there.”
“Y-Yes! I have it!”
“You gave it to her earlier.”
It seemed so close, yet the reality is much tamer.
Then, why is she in that towel?
Please, allow me to have it for a night before you wash it.
“Yeah, I was here earlier when Ester was pacing around the room worried about him.”
“Y-Y-You don’t have to say that!”
“Umm, s-should I bring in his gift?”
Sophia raised her voice.
Her entire body was trembling.
“Go ahead. I want to see what kind of present Sophie brought.”
“P-Please, wait just a moment.”
Sophia rushed out of the living room.
Where is she going?
Everyone watched the door she exited from and awaited her return. It seems she put my gift in her room. We could hear the sound of her door open and a few seconds later close before the sound of her rushing back to the living room.
She then reappeared in the living room.
Along with two other people.
They each wore collars with a chain attached that Sophichan held one end of.
“Umm, T-Tanaksan, this is.”
She held the chains out to me.
The sound of the metal links hitting each other filled the room.
They each had blue eyes and pure, unblemished white skin. They way they subtly trembled made me want to protect them.
“W-Wait a minute, Sophie!?”
“Sophie-san, what is this?”
I’m sorry for Sophichan but I feel like if I grab hold of those chains I’ll be arrested.
“Don’t you like it? They were slaves being auctioned off that sort of fell into my lap.”
“Yeah, they look like really good children.”
“I want you to have them. I’m a commoner but they previously belonged to a rich merchant house. The oldest is ten and the younger one is six. They’re both virgins.”
“I see. That’s an interesting gift.”
“However, I’m sorry, but I can’t accept it.”
“Do you not need slaves?”
I wonder what she was thinking gifting two slaves to someone that has yet to even receive the title of baron. There’s no chance it’s just a simple gift. Is this just something common in the Penny Empire? No, Ester-chan was also surprised.
There’s a chance this is a test.
The possibility seems high.
More importantly, Sophie-chan and I aren’t alone. Sophichan, Allen, and Ester-chan are all here and if I gladly accepted these girls, their opinion of me would fall.
If I think about how this would affect my life, I can’t accept.
“I wouldn’t want to take them from you.”
“I don’t need slaves. Take them.”
She cast a look of disgust over me.
When she entered the room, the image of her towel clinging to her body was almost a one-shot kill on me. At this moment, standing so close to a half-naked non-virgin gave me a real sense of how far I really am from having sex. If Sophie-chan was offering herself as a slave I’d push her down right now and finish inside her.
“I wouldn’t feel comfortable receiving something so expensive from you.”
“I owe you as much after the dragon extermination.”
“No, we were all working together back then and we each played our part.”
“Still, thanks to you, I’ve been given the title of ‘Dragon Slayer.’ It’s an incredibly rare title even in the Penny Empire. I think it’s only natural for me to express my gratitude in some way.”
I don’t know what she’s planning, but I’m happy with my life here in the dorms with Sophichan. I wouldn’t substitute this happiness for anything else. If I were to ask for more, I’d feel like I’d be asking the universe to put this busamen in his place.
Having said that.
I wanted to have a threeway with two twin, blonde lolita sisters!
I really wanted to do it.
However, with Ester-chan, Sophichan, and Allen here, I could only decline. Surely I would’ve been happier if I accepted. This is a disaster. How horrible. I really wanted to have a threesome.
What an idiot I am for worrying about my reputation. Damn it.
“Even so, I really can’t accept your gift.”
“I’m against having young girls as slaves. I spend a lot of time with Ester-chan and Sophichan and I don’t want to make them feel uncomfortable. Their trust is what’s most important to me. If you still wish to thank me, your words are more than enough for me.”
The chances of this happening again to me are basically nonexistent.
These twin loli slaves were brought to me. I didn’t even have to bother going to an auction myself. I thought I’d get them someday, but that dream was right there in front of me and I was forced to turn it away. Even if I can afford to buy some later, it’s a difficult decision to turn them down.
I want a slave.
I want a pretty young slave that will wake me up in the morning.
“is that so?”
My penis is crying. It’s crying and I don’t know if I’ll be able to heal this wound I’ve caused my son. Still, I had to decline. I feel like I’ve made a terrible mistake. I’ll have to make it up to my son later.
“Can you take them away?”
It looks like she’s convinced.
Sophie-chan was quietly nodding.
On the other hand, Sophichan looked puzzled. She was still holding the chains out but was now unsure of who to give them to. I could tell she was genuinely stressed by the sweat stains that were gradually appearing in her armpits.
Actually, the two slaves are looking more worried than her.
“I-I don’t really mind if you want to keep slaves!”
Don’t say that, loli bitch.
This decision was hard enough to make as it is.
“Umm, t-then, I-I-I should return this to you.”
“Since your master doesn’t need them, I’ll give them to you, Sophia.”
The half-naked bitch’s joke caused Sophia to tremble even more.
She looked even sexier with beads of sweat forming on her forehead.
“B-By the way, what are we doing about the escaped criminals!?”
“We’ll continue looking for them tomorrow.”
“Understood! I’ll help you tomorrow as well!”
“Thanks for your assistance.”
Regarding that matter, I think I’ll pretend to look for them for a few more days than report to the Deputy Director that they’ve fled the country. That should give them enough time to escape the capital. After that, they should have an easier time fleeing the country.
The rest of the night passed by peacefully.
