About The Case When I Started Living With A Cool Goddess-Sama, But Because Of Being Too Spoiled, She Ended Up Becoming A Clumsy Useless Person (WN) MTL – Chapter 74

Chapter 74: Kotone and Haruto

They shoved us in the backseat of a big van.

The three people who took us…

One is the driver and the other is the gentlemanly-looking man in the passenger seat.

The last one was a big guy with rough brown hair.

And Kotone next to me was caught by one of the rough-looking guys and was screaming.

He’s in the back seat like the rest of us.

I guess that means surveillance.

“This means the Lady of Tohmi is ours now.”

The man then reached out to touch Kotone’s body through the top of her blazer.

Kotone’s face contorted in disgust and fear, tears welling up in her eyes.

But the other guy stopped him.

“This is not a good time. We need to get out of here.”

The brown-haired man clicked his tongue, but then stopped.

The car just drove off.

Kotone is shaking and shaking.

I’ve been wondering if Kotone was planning something else, and if she’s staging it herself, but from the looks of things, it seems she’s not.

And the way the brown-haired guy’s acting, he could seriously harm Kotone.

I thought…

Kotone and Rei’s grandfather Soichiro Tomi said.

In the process of rebuilding the Tomi group, he’s incurred the enmity of the underworld, which could harm his grandchildren.

I’m not certain, but these men seemed to know Kotone’s true identity from the beginning, and I think it’s safe to assume that they’re working for the people Soichiro Tomi mentioned.

“I’ve been guarding the house for a while, and you’ve been careless enough to sneak out. Lucky for me.”

At the brown-haired man’s words, the other one says, “Shut up.” “Shut up.

The brown-haired man grimaced as he was told that and tried to reach for Kotone again.

“No!”

Kotone is frightened and tries to escape from the man’s hands.

I quickly pulled Kotone’s hand and pulled her to me.

And says quietly to the man.

“You better not mess with this girl.”

What are you? Are you the little lady’s boyfriend?

“No. But she’s the sister of someone I care about.

The guy got mad at me for interrupting him and shook his fist at me.

Kotone was trembling in my arms, but I managed to keep my composure.

“I don’t think causing a scene in the car is going to do you guys any good. I don’t know what your plan is, but it only increases the risk of a failed kidnapping.”

“Shut the fuck up.”

The brown-haired guy didn’t seem to mind what I said, but the guy in the passenger seat did.

“The boy’s right. Why can’t you just stay quiet?”

The man in the passenger seat seemed to be the leader of the group, and the brown-haired man reluctantly followed him this time.

For the time being, the possibility of Kotone being in danger has been averted.

I was relieved and then realized that I was holding Kotone close to me.

Kotone is on my lap as she tries to get away from the man.

The petite Kotone was trembling as she leaned over me.

She’s so weak that it’s hard to believe that she’s the same girl who was trying to bring Rei down.

Kotone looked up at me, her face reddening.

I was holding Kotone’s body from behind and our faces were very close together.

Kotone said in a small voice.

You think you’re protecting me?

Just in case.

“… Thank you.”

After that, Kotone and I both fell silent.

Soon we were blindfolded by the guy in the passenger seat.

To keep them from knowing where we’re taking them.

After a long time, we were finally unloaded from the wagon.

It seemed to be somewhere in the mountains, and there was a tall building like a villa in the middle of it.

We were taken at knife-point to a bedroom on the fourth floor of the building.

It looked like a hotel room with a bathroom and a toilet, but it was in a bad shape.

The guy in charge tells us.

I cannot release you until I have what I came for.

How long?

“I can’t tell you that, but it won’t be for a day or two, so just relax here. But… If you try to run, you’ll be dead.”

The man grunts and disappears from the room.

I wonder if the reason they didn’t leave a man to watch over him is because they can’t afford it.

When we were alone, we looked at each other.

Kotone was exhausted.

Kotone, who grew up as a young lady in Tohomi, should never have been exposed to such malicious intent.

And if a man was about to attack you, you’d be scared.

Me, on the other hand, I’m scared, but it doesn’t feel real, like I’ve been kidnapped.

And Kotone was the target of the kidnapping.

I’m more of a bonus.

Well, she might be killed to keep her mouth shut, but she’s not in the same position as Kotone.

Kotone seemed to be trying hard to control her trembling, but eventually she began to cry aloud.

I was confused, but Kotone hung on to me.

Until recently, Kotone hated Rei and wanted a man to attack her, and she was my enemy.

But now Kotone is just a frightened girl.

I hesitantly hugged Kotone as she pulled herself closer to me.

Then Kotone hugged me tightly and relaxed her body a little as if she felt relieved.

I kept doing that for a long time and Kotone stopped crying.

And he looked at me with those red eyes.

“I’m sorry I showed you something embarrassing.”

I’m not ashamed of it.

“Senior… You’re strong. Aren’t you afraid?

“I’m scared, but it’s just not in my attitude.”

“I think that’s what it means to be strong. I thought I was strong. Unlike you…”

“You were trying to get a man to attack Rei-san, weren’t you? That’s the same thing that almost happened to you just now.”

Kotone was at a loss for words.

And he stared at me, worried.

“Senior… You think I’m unforgivable. So when those men do things to me… you just think it’s weird, right?

“If that were the case, I wouldn’t have defended Tomi earlier.”

“Does that mean… Does that mean you’ll continue to protect me?”

“Tomi-san is Rei-san’s sister…”

When I said that Kotone had a complicated expression on her face.

“I don’t like the fact that she’s your sister.”

“I’m sure Tohmi-san doesn’t like Rei-san.”

“Well… That’s part of it, but… But there’s also other reasons.

Kotone looked straight at me with her big black eyes.

“I’ve always been interested in you.”

“What?”

“Please don’t misunderstand me. I didn’t mean it like that. I was just wondering what kind of man you fell in love with. She’s scared, a coward, afraid of getting hurt… If I knew that she’s only letting her heart go out to you… how could I not be curious about her?”

So, what kind of man was I?

“He’s a kind man, I thought. I tried to do terrible things to you and the others, but you still treat me normal and try to protect me. Is that because I’m your sister? Is that all?”

“I don’t know… I don’t know, it just seems natural to me.”

It’s not hard to understand why Kotone hates her sister.

Rei’s mother and Rei herself were the catalysts for Kotone being deprived of the parents she loved so much.

Of course I couldn’t forgive Kotone for what she tried to do to Rei, but I wasn’t going to hate her either.

“Well… Hey, senior, can I ask you one thing?”

Just one? What?”

Please don’t call me “Mr. Tomi.”

“What?”

I want you to call me Kotone.

“Why?”

I’m sorry, sir.

Kotone looked away and blushed.

“Uh, yeah. “Okay, Kotone.”

When I said that, Kotone shivered and looked at me again.

“Um… is Haruto-senpai.

I stared at Kotone in shock.

I didn’t think you’d call me by my first name.

Kotone blushed and pointed to the bed in the room.

“Me and senior, we’re going to live together here, right?”

“That’s what the man said.”

“And yet… There’s only one bed. What do I do?”
