Chapter 36: On the bullet train.
I was on my way to Karuizawa in Nagano Prefecture, where Rushia’s villa is located, with a group of five people: the twin JKs, Rushia Kaida, a novelist, and Ichika Niekawa, a friend from college.
The 5 of us were on our way to Karuizawa in Nagano Prefecture, where Rushia’s villa is located.
We are on the bullet train.
We took the Shinkansen from Tokyo Station to Nagano.
It takes about two hours to get to Karuizawa from Tokyo.
We were on the Hokuriku Shinkansen, the Asama, heading for Karuizawa.
“…… Akari, it’s going strong!”
“Damn……! Akari’s number one again! That’s not fair!”
Akari and the others are playing cards.
We’re on the green car of the bullet train.
The cost of the bullet train was arranged by Rushia’s [grandfather].
Yesterday, the day before the trip.
I spoke to Rushia’s guardian on the phone for the first time.
When I told him that I was taking his grandchild and JK (my friend) on the trip, he readily agreed.
I was surprised that he was willing to let her go, even though there was an almost 30-year-old man with her.
But the grandfather seemed to trust me.
Well, I’m the guardian of the JK kids, so I guess he doesn’t think any mistakes will happen.
But the …… bullet train?
Of course, I was adamant that I couldn’t ask him to pay for something so expensive.
However, he offered it to me because his grandchild is being taken care of me.
The grandfather is also going to lend us the [villa] where we will stay.
“Okarin, come with me. Rushian is weak.”
I’m sitting in a chair on the other side of the aisle.
Akari, Nanako, and Rushia moved their seats so that they were facing each other, and the three of them were playing cards.
Akari was wearing a shirt that was open all the way to the back and a mini-skirt that made me wonder if I could see her bottom.
Nanako was dressed in a long skirt and short-sleeved shirt, looking very innocent.
Rushia was dressed like a young lady in a pure white dress with a large straw hat over her head.
“Let’s play, Okarin?”
“No, I’m good.”
It was not good for me, an adult, to be mixed in with friends having fun together.
” Well, Ichika, do you want to play?”
Akari says to the girl sitting next to me.
A beautiful black-haired woman with her hair pulled up in an updo, Ichika Niekawa, is sitting next to me.
She is wearing white chinos and a sleeveless shirt.
Her long black hair was pulled up in a classic lapis lazuli-colored barrette.
“No, I’m fine. I don’t want to put a damper on what you’re enjoying.”
“…… Grown-up comment. But …… I know what you mean.”
Jii and Akari was staring at Niekawa.
“You were so happy when you beat us in the [big rock-paper-scissors contest for Okarin.]”
“Geez, I never thought you were a child, Ichika.”
“…..Raise your hands, Eidollian!”
The bullet train we’re on has two rows of seats for ……2 people.
I don’t know why, but they all wanted to sit next to me.
To be fair, it was decided by rock-paper-scissors, and Ichika won.
“B-because…. I haven’t been on a bullet train trip with Okaya-kun since I graduated from college. …… I was so happy.”
Niekawa was squirming to my left.
She unbuttoned her sleeveless shirt by two buttons.
Every time she twisted around, her breasts swayed, emphasizing her cleavage even more.
“”Pippi! Sexual harassment police!””
Akari and Nanako get out of their seats and stand in front of Niekawa.
“Ichika-chan, ……, that outfit is out!”
“…… Ah, Ato!”
Girori, Akari glares at her.
“Ichika-chan, please make sure to button up to the neck.”
“I-It’s fine. …… It’s not like I’m at work. ……”
“What do you think, young lady Rushia?”
Rushia was sitting in a well-behaved chair, drinking from a plastic tea bottle.
I looked at the two of them and said.
“Akari, Nanako, sit down. Take a lesson from Rushia.”
The twin JKs trotted back to their seats.
“But, Okarin, there’s no one else on this bullet train besides us, so it should be fine.”
…… That’s right.
I don’t know what’s going on, but I don’t see any other passengers in the green train we’re in.
“Isn’t everyone sitting in the free seat? This bullet train must be expensive.”
“Eh~. I don’t think there’s anyone in the free seats either. I’d like to have a look.”
Rushia hurriedly stopped her.
“What is it, Rushian?”
“Uhm, it’s ……yes! When the bullet train is moving, you must not move for no reason. It’s good manners. Isn’t that right, Okaya?”
Rushia asks me from behind her seat.
“You’re right, Rushia. Come back and sit down.”
“Chi…… This is definitely a bullet train scarecrow~”
“Haha, no way.”
But why are Niekawa and Rushia looking in the direction of the opposite side?
That’s when it happened.
“Do you want a snack? We also have lunch boxes.”
“Oh, it’s an in-bullettrain vendor, Eeh!?”
Akari rolled her eyes when she saw the person pushing the cart.
“Rushian’s helper, the Terminator!”
A large man dressed in black and wearing sunglasses came over to us.
Niekawa stood up bloodily, and Ha……! and came back to her senses.
“Hmm! Excuse me♡……………… come.”
She grabbed the large man with sunglasses by the collar and pulled him away from us.
“…… Why are you here!”
“…… Master Kogen told me to support the young lady~”
“…… I told you, didn’t I? I told you to get someone else to take this shift!”
“…… Well, as much as I’d like to, it’s just not convenient for everyone.”
“…… Damn it, why are you doing this!”
“……Not because I want to laugh at my sister, who has never …… dated ouch ouch, look, look, stop the headlock!”
The two of them were whispering about something, but I couldn’t hear them talking.
Niekawa and the attendant come back.
“…… Ah, um! You, Ru-chan’s helper. Chobi, where’s he?”
Chobi is our family dog.
Nanako loves this dog very much, but she left it behind because she couldn’t take it with her on our trip.
We tried to leave him at a pet hotel in Tokyo, but Rushia’s helper seemed to be a certified animal handler (custodian) and agreed to take care of Chobi.
The person who offered to take care of him was this big guy in sunglasses.
“Nanako, calm down. He is with his older brother.”
“……I-Is that so?”
“Yeah. I’m Saburo. The one who is taking care of Chobi is my older brother, Jirota.”
“…… I-I see.”
Hoo and Nanako was relieved
On the other hand, Akari looks at Saburo and says,
“Saburo-san, why are you working as an attendant on the bullet train? Aren’t you supposed to be Rushian’s helper?”
“Eh, what do you mean….bullet train”
“”Come here a minute.””
Rushia and Niekawa stood up and left us, along with Saburo.
“…… Saburo, are you stupid?”
“…… Yeah. It’s true that this is a private bullet train that Kogen-sama bought for the young lady. But that doesn’t mean you can tell them.”
“…… Eh? Why, is there anything to hide?”
“…… She’s hiding the fact that she’s the daughter of the Kaida group. Because she’s afraid the other girls will patronize her.”
“…… Hmm, I see. So just don’t tell them you’re overly rich. Okay, I got it. I’ll keep my mouth shut.”
The three of them came back.
“Excuse me, I’m from a poor family and I’m working as a tour guide in addition to helping myself out.”
Both of them nodded their heads.
I thought it was slightly suspicious too. I mean, it’s very suspicious.
I don’t think it’s that easy to become an attendant for the bullet train.
Well, I don’t know, it’s not my main job.
“By the way, what are you doing here, Saburo-san?”
“I’ve brought snacks and drinks. Here you go.”
He handed out juice and snacks to Akari and the others.
I stood up and tried to take out my wallet.
“Aah, That’s fine! This one’s on me.”
“That’s not how it works.”
I said, but Saburo laughed and shook his head, “It’s okay.”
” Young lady and Nee-cha…… mmm! The young lady has always taken care of me, so please let me buy you this.”
It would be rude to disrespect their kindness here.
I decided to accept it gratefully.
“Thank you, Saburo!”
” …… Thank you.”
The JKs bowed their heads.
“No, no. Ah, that’s right. We’ll be arriving at Karuizawa station in about 30 minutes, so please get ready to get off. Adeyu.”
Saburo walked away, pushing his cart with a rattle.
Niekawa sat down and sighed deeply.
“I’m so tired…….”
“He’s a coworker, you say?”
I’ve heard that Niekawa and Saburo both work for Rushia as helpers.
“Yeah, well, ……”
Niekawa said, her eyes scurrying.
” …… You don’t think he’s going to follow us around the whole trip, right?”
No way, Niekawa mumbles something quietly.
“Hey, hey, Rushian. Were is it?”
Akari returns to her seat and asks Rushia, who is sitting in front of her.
“Your villa, Rushian, where is it?”
“Where …… is it?”
Rushia was at a loss for an answer.
“Here and there…….Nnn! To be honest, I don’t really know the name of the place. There will be a pickup at the station, so we’ll have to get in the car and head there.”
“Well, Nagano’s place names are not familiar to me…”
“…… Akari, our last name is in Nagano.”
“No way! Seriously? Ina is a place name in Nagano?”
Well, it’s not a familiar surname if you live in Tokyo.
“So, what were we talking about …… Oh, yeah. Where we’re going to stay from today, I wonder where it will be.”
“It’s a villa my grandfather has prepared for us.”
“A villa, I wonder what kind of place it is. …… And Ancho has a rich aura. …… An entire mountain! I would be surprised if it was an entire mountain!”
Ruthia said, sweating.
“I like this one. This! KID Prince Hotel!”
Akari takes out a travel magazine from her bag.
The KID Prince Hotel is a group of hotels located around Karuizawa Station.
“…… Wow! Amazing, there’s a ski resort on the hotel grounds!”
“That’s not all, sister. The hotel has a shopping mall in front of the station, a bowling alley, a golf course …… and many other amusement facilities.”
The twin JKs raise their voices.
In the meantime, Rushia froze with a smile on her face.
“…… Young lady, are you alright?”
Niekawa stood up and sat down next to Rushia.
“…… I-Ichika. This will be fine, right?”
“…… Don’t worry. It is true that KID Hotel is under the umbrella of the Kaida Group. However, I’m sure that Kogen-sama would not be willing to go as far as renting out this entire hotel.”
“…… Yeah, that’s right. It’s not possible, is it? Renting out the entire KID Prince Hotel, umu, no way.”
“…… Yeah, they’ve probably got a little cabin for us.”
I watch in a daze as the four girls sit tightly together.
A few months ago, I would have never thought of traveling with someone like this.
“Hey, Okarin. It looks like we’re about to arrive.”
“Then let’s each pack up our things and get ready to get off.”
Soon, the bullet train arrived at Karuizawa station.
Rushia pushes us, “Hurry up and go to the ticket gate, don’t look around too much.”
Soon after, we went through the ticket gates and stepped out of the platform.
“I’ve been waiting for you.”
The man who greeted us was Saburo, whom we had met on the bullet train.
Rushia and Niekawa grabbed Saburo’s arms and pulled him away from us.
” …… What are you doing here!”
“……Like I said, I’m here to support young lady.”
“…… !!! This is an important date for me and the young lady! If you ruin it, I’ll destroy everything you care about!”
“…… Hii! I don’t want to lose the magnum between your legs!”
Niekawa came back.
“Saburo. What’s up?”
“The role of guiding the young lady to the villa is awes awaa———-“
Bam….Saburo held his crotch and collapsed on the spot.
“…..W-What’s the matter, Saburo-san!”
Nanako was worried and approached Saburo.
“D-don’t worry …… The gentleman between my legs just got a little …… churgle-y misdirection. ……”
Hmmm…When he sniffed, I saw Niekawa. Before I knew it, Saburo was next to me.
“S-So, ……, let’s get back on track and I’ll show you around. Please follow me.”
We followed Saburo as he walked away.
“How are we going to get to the villa, Saburo?”
Korokoro, Akari asks as she rolls her carry-on.
“We’re almost there…..”
Tarari, Rushia and Niekawa were sweating
“Well! We’re here! The young lady’s villa……!”
He pointed us to which is located right in front of Karuizawa station……
KID Prince Hotel.
“……U-uhm… Saburo-san. You mean the…… hotel?”
Saburo then tilted his head in a cute way.
“Heh? Like I said, it’s the young lady’s villa, the whole place?”

……………….Mission failed succesfully……no, what am i saying?……………There was no percentage of victory in from the beginning.
The only reason why Okaya doens’t imagine Rushia being the current heir of an incredible wealthy group is due to common sense….i mean, where will you find a heir of an incredible wealthy group(enough to even change a country’s laws if necessary) that chooses to be a LN writter?…well, except in fiction……is simply too unbelievable.
There are a bunch of grammar mistakes…..some parts are also not very well connected……
Also, wasn’t Jirota supposed to be the eldest?….or they said it like that to cover up Ichika………..
SoafpDecember 6, 2021 at 2:49 am
Nope you’re right that Jirota is his older brother. Can you point out what grammer mistake so i can fix it

……There are several of them. But they start from the middle to the end.
