Beneath the tall pine, isolated by thick fog stood two girls facing each other at ten meters; Lily in a purple kimono, and Nanako in a pink miniskirt kimono. Suddenly, Nanako let out a cute spirited cry as she cut through the wind in her charge towards Lily at a speed unreachable for most samurais of the same level, “Eee-yaaah!”

Lily’s twice strengthened body from the two spirit powers boosted her dynamic visual acuity to level above Nanako’s speed, rendering each action clear for her to see. She stood, waiting for Nanako to get closer. If she used her 800-some kwan of penetration force, she could disarm Nanako immediately; however, that would be going overboard. In addition, Lily hadn’t faced a well-trained martial artist like her before, they were all brute-type fighters. As such, she planned to only use the light blue spirit power.

Nanako weapons were fast but at the cost of a shorter reach, so she had to be very close to her opponent. Once she was in front of Lily, she leapt from the ground with a kick, her right hand holding the kodachi slashing towards Lily with the added momentum from the jump. With Nanako having lost the ability to change her position, Lily made full use of her katana’s length to quickly slash at Nanako in a horizontal strike!

With a loud clang Nanako’s kodachi moved with a mind of its own and deflected the strike, all while the glistening gauntlet quickly approached Lily’s face! Lily suddenly realized something important – Nanako’s kodachi was so short as it was a defensive weapon. Once Nanako got past her opponent’s sword, she could deliver a blow with her karate techniques – her true fighting style! In response, Lily’s feet began to move in a peculiar way as she took a few steps back to withdraw from Nanako’s attack range in an instant.

“Tsk! How can you be so nimble with such a big ⓣⓘⓣⓢ!” Nanako shouted while chasing as soon as her feet touched the ground, quickly slashing at Lily with the kodachi. In spite of that, Lily easily dodged to the side.

“What?!” Nanako exclaimed, she never expected Lily to be so good at dodging! Those moves were all thanks to senior sister’s athletic body and Lily’s ethereal footwork. Nanako stamped on the ground with one foot to turn her body around, slashing at Lily once again, only to be blocked with the tip of Seiwa Tamashi as if it were natural. Lily’s moves were as smooth as the moving clouds and flowing water in a calm stream: graceful and unconstrained.

‘Th- this woman!’ Nanako exclaimed in her head, ‘actually blocked my attack with such an irregular and laid-back move. Her sword-play is mediocre at best, but those seemingly straightforward moves are extremely effective! This big sister… is very talented!’

Nanako was a lost cause when it came to femininity when she compared herself to Lily, so she absolutely didn’t want to lose against her in talent. Her rage flared stronger than it ever had been as she squatted down, driving her gauntlet into the ground, and launching a low kick at Lily’s shins; her fighting style making full use of her sword, fists, legs, and also hidden weapons, such as the small dagger that was suddenly ejected from her sandle.

With one hand holding the katana, Lily grabbed Nanako’s bare leg with the other. Coated in spirit power, her slender arms could exert a strength that peaked around 400 kwan of force – 1200 kilograms (~2645 lbs): more than enough to easily fling Nanako into the sky.

Through great difficulty, Nanako managed to turn around in midair, too late to avoid the awkwardness of her butt touching the ground as she fell onto the meadow. Somersaulting to her feet, her face was tinged with anger as she shouted, “Stupid big-breasted woman!”

Dashing forward while launching consecutive agitated attacks that Lily either dodged or deflected —practically using Nanako as a practice dummy— Nanako was quickly growing tired, gasping for breath; in contrast Lily wasn’t tired, as she had been passively dodging with minimal movements, on top of her advantage when it came to blocking attacks, she felt like she had simply been strolling in the park.

“N- no way… how can this be!” Nanako gradually became more impatient, “This woman… why is her footwork so good? Why does she look so graceful even while dodging? Moreover, s- she is taller than me and has such big breasts, but her speed is actually faster than mine!”

Nanako was very unwilling to accept that her speed and dexterity also fell short of this big breasted woman. This was a huge hit to her confidence.

After the frenzied attacks, Nanako pulled some distance from Lily. She was gasping for air, with her hands on her knees. Fragrant sweats could be seen forming on her forehead.

And as for Lily? She was standing there while brushing her hair, looking very relaxed.

“Stupid woman… y- you better take this more seriously! Or the next move could possibly end your life!” yelled Nanako in a fit of anger.

“Oh my, am I not taking this seriously enough?” Lily smiled sweetly.

‘Hmph, she obviously has that indifferent look on her face!’ thought Nanako, but she was actually anxious about the outcome of the battle. She didn’t expect Lily to gain the upper hand with her outstanding physical ability despite having mediocre sword skills.

She already lost to this big sister when it came to the size of their breasts, but she didn’t expect to lose to her in power and speed as well. In front of Lily, Nanako was just like a little chick.

‘She… this big sister is so strong.’

Nanako’s eyes became cloudy as her mind was enveloped by a hazy-feeling.

‘If I lose to big sister Lily, I will become her slave…’

‘She is so strong, there’s no way I can beat her. I lost to her in every aspect. In that case… doesn’t that mean big sister is meant to be the master?’

For the first time in Nanako’s life, everything she knew about herself came crumbling down.

‘No! Not good!’

‘Hmph! As long as my finishing blow can hit her, I can turn this whole situation around!’

Nanako fired herself up!

‘As long as I can beat this woman, then this big sister who is stronger than me in every aspect will become my slave!’
‘I can ride on this proud and girly big sister like a horse! That would be so fascinating!’
‘Hmph, although she is strong, she still lacks experience. She definitely won’t be able to see through this move! Even if I don’t have as much power as her, it’s my win if I can connect the hits! Then she will be mine! I can do anything I want to her!’
‘I’ll bet everything on this move! I can win this!’

The atmosphere around Nanako became heavier as light blue Spirit Power materialized around her body.

Lily also had a serious look on her face. She warned herself not to look down on the ancient martial skills that had been passed down for several hundreds of generation! She could be defeated in one fell swoop despite her dominance in battle!

Lily pulled out the scabbard from her waist and changed the way she held the sword. After sheathing the sword, she lowered her body and got into an iaijutsu stance.

“Iaijutsu?” Nanako was startled and thought to herself, ‘Hah, although she can hide her flaws and prevent others from predicting her next move with this, I have nothing to fear with this move of mine! Kagami Lily, be prepared to lose!’

“Hah!” shouted Nanako as the all the Spirit Power she accumulated burst out. With a sharp acceleration, Nanako got in front of Lily with a strong wind after her trail. Victory or defeat would be decided in an instant!

When Nanako entered Lily’s sword range, she drew the katana.

“Clang!” However, Nanako’s kodachi was faster and hit the blade which Lily barely pulled out. She offset the blade and prevented Lily from drawing her sword.

“You lose!” Nanako was sure of her victory.

The gauntlet on Nanako’s other hand was her true finishing move as it carried all of her remaining Spirit Power. The light blue Spirit Power formed a spiral vortex on the gauntlet as she lifted it to launch the decisive blow on Lily.1

“Bang!!!”

Lily pushed the still sheathed blade against the kodachi, causing Nanako to lose her balance and the direction of her punch. Spinning the sword around, Lily drove the scabbard into Nanako’s rib, sending her flying away; her kodachi dropping to the ground at Lily’s feet.

“Crish-crash,” After Nanako’s body flew for several meters, she crashed powerlessly onto the spongy ground and fainted.

It might have been a short while or perhaps several minutes had already elapsed.

Nanako finally, if unsteadily, walked back to consciousness. What immediately entered her line of sight was the pine needles and pine cones. And beside her, she could see Lily’s purple kimono and her bare legs.

“……” Nanako wanted to get up, but she found that to be an impossible task. Her hands seemed to be bound by some kind of rope and her body seemed to be lying on Lily’s soft thigh.2

“What are you doing?!” Nanako realized what a shameful position she was in and her face turned red instantly. She twisted her body in an attempt to struggle, “Big breasted woman! What are you planning to do?! Let me go, release me!”

However, Nanako found to her dismay that her hands and waist had been pressed down firmly by Lily single-handedly. She was unable to break free at all!

“Kagami Lily, what do you think you’re doing?! You actually dare to tie me up?! Release me! I order you to let me go at once! You big-breasted, Herculean woman! Female monster! Fox-spirit!” Nanako kept wriggling her cute little body. Her legs flapped in disorder and cursing remarks kept coming from her mouth.

Being called a monster was Lily’s most recent concern. She originally planned to give her some face as she was a girl, but since she scolded Lily like that, anger was welling up in her heart. She made up her mind and lifted Nanako’s short skirt, then from her bosom, she took out a black ruler borrowed from the granny.3

All of these were carried out in one go, with no prior indication of it at all. Nanako was dumbfounded at the sudden turns of event.

She only felt a chilly sensation on her butt.

“Slap!”

The big sister’s ruler hit Nanako’s butt with no holds barred.

Nanako was completely stupefied.

After she had grown up, not even her mother Yomika had hit her once. And today, under the broad daylight, not only did she lose to this woman, she was even pressed onto this big sister’s thigh and got spanked like a child.

Nanako was undoubtedly furious and ashamed, “You actually dare to hit me?! I- I am the young lady of the Saikanji house!”

“I am hitting you precisely because you are an unruly young lady with a lack of discipline!”

Lily’s voice was elegant but stern and merciless all the same.

“Slap! Slap! Slap!”

……

The moon rose to the sky and darkness overruled the light.

Nanako had flushed cheeks with tears in her eyes. She covered her butt with one hand.

“Kagami Lily… y- you dare to hit my butt. Did you know it is a capital offense to shame and mistreat a nobility?!” Nanako was prostrating in front of Lily, but she still glowered at Lily and said with a sobbing tone.

Lily on the other hand just crossed her legs and said complacently, “Hmm? Nobility? Don’t forget that you are my slave now. What crime did I commit when I’m just punishing my slave?”

“T- that’s…” Nanako panicked and was at a loss for words.

“What’s that? Miss Nanako, could it be that the young lady of the historical Saikanji house won’t keep her word?”

“You… shut up! I- I am Nanako of the Saikanji house, as a samurai, I… I will keep my promise!” Although Nanako’s face was filled with reluctance and shame, she couldn’t break the samurai code and her family’s honor.

With a slightly cunning smile on her face, Lily said, “Then what are you hesitating for? Take it out and sign it yourself.”

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 62

With all due respect, since this week’s chapter has been pushed ahead of schedule, there will only be one chapter for this week and the next week. Believe me, I’d love to provide you guys with two chapters (or more) per week if I can help it, but due to some circumstances which I cannot reveal just yet, I currently do not have enough chapters in stock to do just that.

However, if my plan shifts toward a favorable outcome, then we will be hearing some good news in a week or two. If the plan falls apart, there will be no good news, but no bad news either. We will just keep up the chapter release at the same pace as always.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 61

Well, due to my guilty conscience, I pushed this chapter 1 week ahead of schedule so the editor hadn’t had the chance to edit it yet. Sorry, Max!

Please enjoy this chapter, unedited it may be, the quality’s still not too shabby. Oh yes and Arifureta anime adaptation is finally out last night! What’d everyone think about it? This is just my personal opinion but I believe they totally ruined it, they try to stack too much into one episode and everything feels so rushed. It was a total letdown.

Chapter 31 – Lily’s Gamble

The river banks were filled with light-colored mists.

Lily walked past the wooden bridge and arrived at the other side, which was mainly occupied by trees and mountains.

She walked along the gravel lane just outside the shrine. The lush greenery at the roadside carried with them a fragrant smell. Lily was feeling quite pleasant at the moment. Who would have thought that her power was already approaching the ranks of Kengo with the Soul Eater’s augmentation!

Just imagine it, the high and mighty Kengo! Lily had been mesmerized by that title ever since she heard it from the merchant.

‘Can a little girl like me also become a Kengo?’

‘Why not? Why does age and gender matter? Aren’t they only assessing your sword skills?’

However, Lily also had her doubts. As Sakura mentioned previously, the ability to refine and replenish one’s Spirit Power through the consumption of animas and true essences was an ability called Soul Eater. The Spirit Power refined from monster animas contained various kinds of ominous colors and was not at all the same light-colored one she originally possessed. This kind of Spirit Power could also be called Demon Fury. Soul Eater was an ability only the shikigami and monsters possessed, but why then, was she also able to use it?

She was but an authentic young and healthy normal girl. There was no way she’d be a monster. Moreover, she came from the modern world no less!

Since that was the case…. Why was she able to use Soul Eater?

If she managed to get the Sakura Parasol back, there were much to talk about.

As Lily walked on the gravel lane that was piled up near the muddy river bank and feeling the waves against her feet, she eventually saw the shape of an exceptionally tall pine tree appearing in front of her amidst the dense fog.

Lily only knew of this pine tree’s location because she specially returned to the Chrysanthemum Inn to ask the granny.

Lily climbed up the sandy slope and what she saw under the old pine tree was a little girl with pink mini-skirt kimono sitting atop a big boulder measuring a few meters high.

‘It looks like Saikanji Nanako has changed to a new set of clothes today, is she in a good mood?’ Lily thought to herself.

And what Nanako had in her hands was undoubtedly the Sakura Parasol.

A sudden thought suddenly flashed through Lily’s mind; the little girl seemed to be a perfect fit with the color of that parasol.

However, there was no way Lily would give that parasol to her. This was a very important treasure to Lily, and also her friend!

Lily stepped onto the spongy ground packed with the pine tree’s roots, then she took a step forward and said with an angelic tone, “Lady Nanako, thank you for holding onto that parasol for me. Now then, can you return it to me?”

Nanako was swinging her legs, which were clothed in a pair of white stockings, “Return it to you? Sure, it’s just a paper parasol. I thought Miss Samurai didn’t care about it anymore and wouldn’t bother to come. Is it possible that… this parasol is very important to you?”

“It isn’t really all that important, it’s just that I like her cherry blossom design and color.”

“Her? Hah, I didn’t expect a big-breasted woman like you to have the poetic flavor to liken a parasol to a girl.”1

Lily didn’t want to chitter-chatter with her, so she said, “Whatever, can you return that to me?”

“Of course I can, however~ you must sign this slave contract,” Nanako took out a paper filled with the terms of contract.

Lily sighed weakly, “Didn’t I already sign it once?”

“That didn’t count!” Nanako shouted, “Who asked you to sign in the owner section? You are supposed to sign under the slave! I want you to become my slave and let me ride on you like a horse, isn’t that a great deal? To let the noble young lady of the Saikanji house ride on your back and lead you along as you crawl on the ground, wouldn’t that be so much fun? Hahahahahaha!”

Nanako laughed with pleasure, as though Lily had already become her slave.

The wind blew from the riverside and tossed Lily’s long hair up.

“That brat really needs to be taught a lesson,” Lily shook her head and took out the Anima Container. Four or five Mountain Imp Animas flew out of the box as she opened it and they were blown towards the direction of the wind, towards where Nanako was sitting. One of the animas got under the parasol by pure coincidence.

“Huh? What are you doing?” Nanako was dumbfounded, “Releasing monster animas? These animas are worth a few hundred mon each, are you trying to flaunt your wealth in front of me?”

Lily didn’t bother to answer and merely looked on.

The anima under the parasol was suddenly seized by an unfathomable power. It was swaying like a little fish that had been hooked for a while before getting swallowed up by the Sakura Parasol. The parasol shone with a misty luster and instantly fluttered into the sky with a jolt.

“Huh? Whaaaaa——” The loli tightened her grasp on the parasol in a panic and she was actually lifted along into the sky.

“W-w-what? What’s going on?!” Nanako grabbed the parasol as her legs danced wildly in the midair. The poor girl was so frightened, it looked a little hilarious.

Nanako finally released her hands and landed on the ground with a stagger. She managed to avoid falling due to her light and nimble body.

And the Sakura Parasol flew into Lily’s hand all by itself.

Nanako had finally figured it out, “T-That is a magic tool! No wonder you care about it so much and spent one whole night to look for it!”

As it turned out, Nanako knew this parasol belonged to Lily as soon as she picked it up and ordered someone to tail Lily. They even knew Lily had gone out to search for it during the late night.

Just at this time, however, the parasol started to talk without waiting for Lily to say anything, “Pooey! Don’t compare me to those low-quality man-made object you hear?! This great loli is but a shikigami! A shikigami y’know?! Moreover, I hate other lolis!”2

“Huuuuuh???” Nanako’s eyes were already big as they originally were, but they widened even more in shock, “A… sh- shikigami you say?! I didn’t even have one yet!”

Nanako pointed at Lily, dissatisfaction to the max, “Y- you are just a poor girl who grew up consuming who knows what, and yet you have a shikigami?!”

“What is there to be surprised about? Lemme tell you, pervy loli, my master has lotsa treasures in her home!”3 said Sakura with a jolt.

“Don’t speak out of turn, Sakura,” There was an old saying in Lily’s original world that literally translates to ‘don’t be too naive and you will have a large amount of money.’ She didn’t want to let people know what other treasures she had in possession.

“Waitwaitwaitwaitwait, w- what did you just say?! Who are you calling pervy?!” It seemed like Nanako and Sakura were already on each other’s neck.

“You, who else!”

“On what basis are you calling me a perv?!”

“Hmph, master, you don’t know this but that young lady is definitely a pervert! During bedtime last night, she was hugging me and kept stroking my handle. She even sniffed me and says she can smell big sister Lily’s scent. Moreover, moreover, she even licked me with her tongue! That was eww… so disgusting! Master, please help me wash it off later.”4

“Eh?” Lily was really shocked but somehow managed to stop it from showing on her face.

She turned to look at Nanako again. Seeing as how she turned beet red in an instant, it seemed like Sakura didn’t accuse her wrongly.

There wasn’t a need for shikigamis to come up with such a baffling lie after all.

Nanako really hoped she could dig a hole and bury herself in it. Her memory last night was a bit hazy, but who would have guessed the parasol was a shikigami with its own mind and memory?!

Seeing that Nanako was awkwardly prostrating herself, Lily also didn’t want to hit where it hurts. She had already retrieved the parasol, so it was time to go back. She still had many things to do. For a girl who planned to dedicate her whole life to martial arts, all her free time could be better spent on training.

“Then… I’ll leave now. Thank you for looking after Sakura for me, Miss Nanako,” Lily propped up the parasol and turned around.

“S- stop!” Yet, Nanako pointed at Lily from behind and said in a panic, “Kagami Lily, don’t you move from that spot!”

“What is it? Do you still need anything else? Miss Nanako? Could it be that… you can’t sleep without big sister’s scent?” Lily leisurely glanced back with a smile.

“S- shut up!” Nanako felt so ashamed and unable to show her face. It seemed like the only way to keep her reputation from damnation was to silence Lily by killing her, “I- I want to challenge you to a duel! Kagami Lily, you busty and airheaded woman whose body reeks of slutiness! A vulgar woman who can’t help herself from sashaying while walking on the road! A damn fox-spirit! Fight me!”

Lily planned to just ignore her from the beginning, but she came to a halt as a silent flame lit up in her heart.

She tolerated her advances over and over again, but this little girl kept intensifying her approach to make things difficult for her. Not only did she insult her, but she also called her a fox-spirit just when Lily was concerned whether she had any relations with the monsters. She was not scared to be scolded by someone, but Nanako had stepped on a landmine!

Lily was burning with rage, her long hair flipped backward and made a whooshing sound as she turned around. Her eyes were burning with anger as she looked at Nanako. The little girl who was throwing a tantrum was startled by her display.

“Okay,” Lily’s tone of voice still sounded very calm, but that was like the calm before the storm, “You wanted to challenge me to a duel right, I have accepted.”

“Huh?” Nanako was puzzled. Although she believed that Lily would accept the challenge, Lily’s current behavior still gave her lingering fears, “T- that’s good then! If you lose to me, then become my slave!”

Lily’s breasts jiggled visibly as she intentionally emphasized the parts that Nanako was most concerned about and said, “Then what if you lose?”

“Hahahahahaha,” Nanako put her hands on her hips as she laughed, “Why would a high and mighty young lady like me lose to a woman like you? If I lose, how about I become your slave instead.”

Ever since she was young, Nanako had received top-quality combat training and even received the kodachi5 that had been passed down from one generation to another. Although Lily had more raw power, but if they really got into a fight, her sword skills, combat techniques, and experience far exceeded that of Lily. At home, that Low-Class Samurai Taihara Sugiyama always got bullied by her during their combat training.

In real combat, Nanako never thought of the possibility of losing to a woman like Lily.

“Good, that’s settled then,” Lily released her hand and the Sakura Parasol flew to the side by itself and landed beside a tree.

The atmosphere around Lily had become heavier. She placed her slender hand on the handle of the katana, slightly leaned forward and got into a good position.

As Nanako looked at Lily’s stance, she had to admit that it was somewhat proper, but it would appear that her sword skill was still underdeveloped. This was the stance every lower-class samurai in Kanagawa prefecture assumed. Nanako felt more relieved upon knowing this fact. Lily might have more raw power, but her sword and gauntlet were Grade Three weapons. The combat techniques and kodachi passed down to her were quite famous among the martial artists of the Kanto region. In order to deal with Lily, she just had to cautiously dodge her attacks and it’ll be a cinch!

“Kagami Lily, you actually dare to accept my challenge with such arrogance, you don’t stand a chance to win! Hmph, be prepared to work as the slave of Saikanji Nanako!” Nanako’s gaze also turned ice-cold. She was full of confidence. On one hand, she was equipped with the bamboo-green gauntlet. With the other hand, she unsheathed the kodachi and assumed the world-famous martial stance!

Chapter 30 – Lily’s Penetration Force

The evening was still a long way off, so Lily put away the slip of paper for now.

“Just how long does this Saikanji Nanako plans to keep up with this!” Lily was already in a bad mood since early morning. Not only did she get kissed in an unexpected situation the day before, she even lost the Sakura Parasol. She never thought that the parasol would fall into the hands of such an annoying brat. Though she received an invitation, who knew just what kind of trap she set up this time. Nanako definitely wouldn’t return the parasol that easily.

Taking a deep breath to calm her nerves, Lily asked, “excuse me, is there a place where I can test my penetration force?”

The female disciple replied, “Of course there is. Miss Kagami is already one of us, the mistress said you may use some of the basic training grounds and facilities as you wish.”

“That’s great! Can you take me there?”

There were two reasons Lily wanted to test her penetration force. The first reason was to see what level of strength had she reached after that night of awakening. The other reason was merely to give vent to her frustration!

The female disciple brought Lily to an empty unfrequented training ground located in the dojo’s outer region. This was the training ground specially built for in-name disciples; however, as a matter of fact, the majority of the in-name disciples normally spent their time on adventuring or holding an official post, so they rarely ever spent their time training in the dojo.

Since the female disciple had other matters to attend to, she left Lily all by herself. Lily picked up a wooden sword and faced the blue-colored Slash Force Sensor, both of which had already been set up long before they arrived.

Directing almost all of her frustration and anger at the poor Slash Force Sensor, Lily struck out,
“Haaah—!” she shouted loudly as the wooden sword pierced through the wind.

The heavy sound echoed throughout the training ground, “bang!”

“450 Kwan!”

A slight smile formed on Lily’s face. She felt a little better after venting her frustration. This was the result of the more commonly used blue-colored Spirit Power. Lily was quite satisfied with it, considering all the battles and work out she had been doing recently. Next, it was time to test the Spirit Power obtained from the Soul Eater ability.

As Lily employed the Soul Eater power, the faint Spirit Power that enveloped her body changed into a dim crimson light, which also extended to cover the wooden sword

“Swish!” The abrupt sword swing caused the space in its immediate vicinity to twist1 moderately.

“Dooooooooooong—!!!” A sound resembling the chimes of a grandfather clock reverberated throughout the area.

“871 Kwan!”

“Say what?!” exclaimed Lily, shocked by the result.

It’s actually… that powerful?

The Spirit Power augmented by Soul Eater was capable of giving her such a big boost in power?

No wonder… no wonder she was able to cut down the Mountain Imps as though she was chopping vegetables and killed them in the hundreds in one breath!

‘But 871 kwan, how does it work?’

Lily had specially asked the female disciple about the samurai’s power levels during their small talks. According to the long-standing standards of Genji and Taira Dojo, a Low-Class Samurai’s penetration force was between 80 to 200 kwan.

Middle-Class Samurai: 200 to 400 kwan.

High-Class Samurai: 500 to 800 kwan.

Lily’s base power had already surpassed the upper limit of a Middle-Class Samurai and was approaching the doorstep of High-Class Samurai. On top of that, the penetration force of her Spirit Power augmented by Soul Eater reached an astounding 871 kwan! Her power level jumped across the High-Class Samurai in one go and was drawing near to the strength of a Low-Class Kengo, who were said to be able to roam around the Heian Empire freely. Lily suddenly understood why Uesugi said her name would quickly spread across the Kanagawa prefecture. The speed of her improvement surprised even herself. She hadn’t even been in this parallel world for a full month, yet not only had she become a samurai, but she was also about to step into the ranks of the valiant Kengo!

“Senior sister… maybe… I have taken yet another step closer to the journey ahead… Alright, it’s about time to go find that little girl,” Lily was really excited and her breasts jiggled in response. Her mood was also a lot lighter compared to before.

“Hmph, I really hope that naughty young lady has really picked up the Sakura Parasol,” Lily had a relaxed smile forming at the corner of her mouth.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 60

I know I gave a big tease last week and everyone is really looking forward to this chapter, I feel really bad this too, it left a bitter taste in my mouth. With that said, I’ll be pushing next Tuesday’s chapter forward! Enjoy the double chapter today!

And I’m sure many are curious about the… seminar last week… though it shames me to say this but I actually… didn’t go to the seminar. My internal alarm kept ringing bells, so in the end, I went to a body massage center instead. It was there the clerk introduced me to one of her colleagues who is supposedly “interested” in me, so we are now hitting it up on the messenger and getting to know each other. I guess the end result isn’t all that bad? I missed a golden opportunity, which I don’t even know if it’s the real deal or not, but I ended up getting introduced to a “potential” girlfriend.

I’m saying “potential” here because we’re still getting to know each other. The other party seems to like me for now (for whatever reason… we never really even had a real conversation once) but I don’t know if I’ll ever feel the same way about her… I don’t think I’ve ever truly looked at another girl with love interest aside from my first crush. The shadow of my first crush is looming deep in my heart. Even now, after being apart for more than 10 years since High School, I would still call her name in my mind unconsciously from time to time… Oh boy, all these cheesy lines sound like some third-rate teenage romance drama. I’m just gonna sign out for now! Over and out!

Early in the morning, Daidouji Akira and his gang had gone into the valley to look for their “heirloom” after confirming the Mountain Imp colony was gone, but to no avail. As their hearts were so low, reaching their stomachs, they almost leaped from their throats when they saw Noburu standing in the way. They only relaxed after seeing the words carved in front of him, assuming they were carved by some strong samurai passing by. Relieved that Lily was probably dead, and the traitor most certainly gone, they could finally return to Takeshita with mixed feelings.

It was already the evening by the time Akira and gang reached Takeshita. They were making their way towards the tavern they were supposed to stay. They forwent the plan to return to the mountain town due to two reasons; they were unable to find the heirloom and confirm Lily’s death. They were unwilling to let it go just like that!

Akira even forcefully purchased a bullock-cart on the road. Lying unconscious on the cart was the heavily injured Takano with one arm missing.

Unwilling to let that go, Akira forced some words out between gnashed teeth as his hatred focused solely on Lily, “Regardless of her breathing or not, I must see her body with my own eyes! We don’t know if that ⓢⓛⓤⓣ was actually killed by the mountain imps or not!”

One martial monk exclaimed, “Lord Akira, how could that woman be alive with so many mountain imps there? Surely she’s in shreds now!”

“That’s right, but it’s such a pity. The heirloom must’ve been taken by them,” said another martial monk beside Akira.

Humoring the thought, Akira said, “Alas, since that’s the case it will be very difficult to get it back!”

‘This Lily was too hateful! So be it if she fell down the slope and got caught by the colony, but did she have to take the heirloom with her?’ Akira thought as the spy they left in the city breathlessly rushed over.

“Lord Akira! B- Bad news!”

Akira’s mood began to sour even more as he shouted, “What now?!”

“T- That woman…”

“What woman, speak clearly! And slowly!”

“That woman, Kagami Lily, I saw her entering the town this afternoon completely unharmed!” said the spy hurriedly.

“What?!?!” Akira was so surprised that his eyeballs threatened to pop out, “N- Not dead? She’s actually not dead? But how? How did she escape from that colony of Mountain Imps?!”

As Akira and the rest of his gang rushed to the tavern to discuss the topic in detail, Lily was walking out of the Chrysanthemum Inn to linger along the riverbank.

“That’s strange, I clearly remembered that I dropped it around this area, why is it gone…”

That was such a fine paper parasol, even if the others didn’t know of its secret, it was still within the realm of possibility for it to be picked up by other people.

Lily blamed herself!

‘I actually lost the parasol!’

It was beyond her control for the parasol to be blown away by the gust generated by the black steed. However, if she immediately returned to find the parasol, rather than getting enamored by Uesugi’s kiss and went to nag at her, she might still be able to find it. The street was devoid of people during the rainstorm after all.

‘This is just great! I had forgotten about this matter at the time, returned to Chrysanthemum to take a bath and get a new set of clothes, only to run back to specifically tell that woman my name, just what was I thinking?!’

All other matters could be dropped, but she would be in deep trouble if the Sakura Parasol was really lost!

However, the Sakura Parasol was not an ordinary item. At the very least, it was not something a commoner would be able to damage. Lily spread out spiritual waves to search the area, but since the Genji Dojo was protected by a special barrier, she was unable to search there.

The result from half a night of search; nothing.

Lily returned to the Chrysanthemum Inn helplessly. All she could think of was whether she could request Lady Sakiko to issue a pamphlet for lost item tomorrow. It may be assumed that the parasol was still within the town.

When Lily was back in her room, she took off her upper garment to reveal her back. Then she used a wet towel to whip herself until her back turned deep red.

“This is for my fickle mind! This is for letting senior sister down! This is for losing the parasol!”

In brief, Lily made far too many mistakes in one day.

Not much time had passed before she collapsed onto the ground with reddish back.

She was a girl, and if she looked at it from a different perspective, being kissed by another girl didn’t count. At the very least, it meant that she hadn’t defiled senior sister’s body.

The so-called purity of girls would be tainted if their body was seen by a guy, but it didn’t count if they were seen by other girls right? Lily had never heard of the saying that the girls would lose their purity if they were seen by other girls in the public bath.

However, Lily had the mind of a boy. Since that was the case, wouldn’t that mean kissing other girls was an unfaithful act towards senior sister despite having her purity spared?

Could that really be regarded as an unfaithful act though?

Regardless of which, Lily already had an answer in her heart. She felt very guilty towards senior sister in the deepest recesses of her heart.

That strong sense of immorality she felt when being forcefully kissed by Uesugi was enough to prove that she had done senior sister wrong.

“Senior sister… I’m sorry.”

The white yukata slid through her arm and fell onto the ground as she suddenly sat up in a seiza position.

In that position, with nothing but a black panty covering her crotch1, she sat in seiza for one whole night.

That was Lily’s punishment for her own carelessness and fickle mind.

“I must remain faithful to senior sister! Who cares if Uesugi is a bad girl or not, there is no relationship between us. At most, we are just an acquaintance. I must not associate with her any more than this! It is for the best if I never see her again!”

Lily silently vowed to herself.

Just as she did that, however, she touched her lips and thought, ‘My first kiss was already stolen by her, how do I get it back…’

‘Hmph, kissing other girls doesn’t count as the first kiss!’

“Isn’t that right, senior sister?” said Lily as she looked into the mirror with her slightly teary eyes.

The next morning was greeted by a rare sunny day.

Lily put on the purple kimono and made her way towards Genji Dojo.2

She wasn’t expecting that her every action to attract so much attention.

There were some who harbored hatred towards her and some who she couldn’t even fathom what they were thinking.

“Ⓕⓤⓒⓚ!” cursed Akira, who was at the opposite bank of the path that led to Genji Dojo, “That ⓢⓛⓤⓣ is really still alive! How did it come to this… How did she escape from that Mountain Imp colony? She doesn’t seem to be injured at all? Could it be that the Mountain Imps didn’t notice her? Is she really that lucky?! If I had known earlier, I should have stayed to confirm the Mountain Imps had done ⓑⓛⓔⓔⓟ and ⓑⓛⓔⓔⓟ to her!”

However, it was not that he hadn’t thought of staying behind either. It was just that while humans found climbing a mountain to be difficult, it was like walking on flat ground to the Mountain Imps. He was afraid to be screwed over in case the Mountain Imps discovered him!

“That Kagami Lily must be going to Genji Dojo to finish her test assignment. Hmph, how can a peasant with no family background like you also become a samurai?! Peh!” Recalling that his son, Takano, had become disabled for life and couldn’t become a samurai anymore, Akira was burning with towering rage. He had the violent urge to go up there and smack Lily with his club.

“My lord!” The Martial Monk beside Akira pulled him and continued, “Takeshita is under the protection of Genji Dojo. If you injure the samurai of Genji here, our entire clan will be exterminated!”

“Peh! I already know that! Hmph, Kagami Lily, don’t think I won’t be able to deal with you even if you stay nested in Takeshita! There are many means that my clan can employ, you would never see them coming!”

When Lily gracefully entered the Genji Dojo, Akira’s fierce and crude-looking face broke into a vicious smile.

After Lily entered the dojo, she followed the instruction of the female disciple and arrived at the small isle in the southeast plain, where all kinds of goods were being sold.

There was a cabin here specifically for purchasing animas.

Lily handed over three Mountain Imp animas for inspection.3 The one in charge of verifying the anima was an effeminate onmyoji with dull-colored hunter clothes and traditional top hat. After the verification was complete, he gave Lily a sealed letter with ‘Combat Examination: Pass’ written on it. Lily accepted the sealed letter and she could feel a faint Spirit Power coming from it.

This letter didn’t contain any magic power, but it could prevent others from making a counterfeit.

Lily gave the sealed letter to the female disciple. That action was indicative that Lily had, in fact, already became a samurai!

All she needed to do now was to wait for the announcement and receive the Pass Certificate in a few days time.

Lily was having small talks with the female disciple as they left the cabin. Once they reached the wooden bridge, they saw a somewhat familiar-looking young samurai running over with slight distress.

Lily seemed to recall that youngster standing at Nanako’s side.

Taihara Sugiyama was slightly nervous to stand before a woman as beautiful as Lily. He stopped quite a distance from her, turning his head to sideways to avoid arousing suspicion and gave Lily a slip of paper. Contrary to what one might expect, he was quite the gentleman.

“M- Miss Kagami. My ladyship requested me to deliver this to you.”

Lily received the letter.

‘Just what is that Saikanji Nanako playing at now?’

Upon seeing Lily’s confusion, Taihara Sugiyama wanted to say something but hesitated. He forced a smile with a guilty conscience and left in a hurry.

Lily flipped open the letter and written on it with somewhat messy handwriting was: “Do you want your parasol back? Then meet me under the old pine tree at the opposite bank this evening! If you don’t come…”4

There was even a scribble of a little girl sticking out her tongue at the corner of the letter. One glance was enough to tell it was scribbled by Nanako herself.

Lily felt her strength had recovered a little so she pushed hard against that woman, seized the opportunity to jump down the horse.

Once she got down, she finally came to realize the sheer size of that black steed. This woman was actually able to tame a horse of such a high rank.

Lily used the back of her hand to wipe her lips, but there was no way to erase that deplorable and hateful feelings.

“You… I see no need to inform you of my name, why are you doing this?”

Lily was not about to take it lying down. Though there was a stubborn teardrop dwelling in the corner of her eyes, she absolutely refused to cry in front of this woman. That was not because she felt wronged, it was merely humiliation!

‘My first kiss has been forcefully stolen because she is much, much stronger than me. That’s all! There is no way I would have any feelings for this kind of woman!’

Lily repeated these words in her mind over and over again. It was as though she believed those words would become actual fact if she repeated them many times over.

While she was riding on the horse, Uesugi Rei’s long silver hair seemed to have almost hidden her shapely butt from view. As the silver-haired woman jumped down the horse with her back facing Lily, she saw the deadly tachi hanging on her back. That tachi was about the same height as Uesugi. She was wearing the same black, sleeveless silk cloth as the other day. She wore a short skirt that covered only the front and rear. As for the length of the skirt, it was so short that everything would be exposed if it was one centimeter shorter.

Uesugi Rei was still smiling wantonly as she heard Lily’s question, but her violet eyes seemed to peer into the mind of others as she answered, “Why, you ask? That’s such an odd question. I kill demons because they attack mankind. I kissed you because you are cute. What I am saying is that… you are very cute. How many times do I have to repeat that for you to understand?”

Lily only stared at her blankly. If it was not herself that was retarded, then it must be that this woman had a mental problem. She was unable to follow the logic of this woman.

“Let me ask you another question in return, w-what was so cute about me?” Lily blushed as she asked back with slight anger.

Uesugi Rei narrowed her eyes and revealed a somewhat bewitching gaze. Lily had a little trouble resisting that kind of gaze.

As Uesugi drew near to Lily, the difference in height was finally made clear. She was indeed taller than Lily, even though Lily was quite tall herself.

If Uesugi Rei just took one more step, their breasts would squeeze together and change shape…

“For such a charming and delicate girl like you to ask big sister this kind of question, do you really want me to fawn on you so much?”

Uesugi Rei brought her face close to Lily. As she was assailed by the sweet fragrance of that woman again, Lily could feel her breathing getting rougher.

“Just look at your charming features. You have such a beautiful face as though you were the reincarnation of the goddess herself. Your eyes look exactly like night crystal, and your rosy lips tasted like heavenly nectar. Even supernatural beings would be charmed upon looking at your soft breasts. And your slender waist is just begging to be embraced.”

Lily felt a little dazed upon hearing these. Her sensitive female body couldn’t stand such high praise, but her male mentality warned her to remain cool-headed. She must act like her mind was not disturbed. She shouldn’t let this kind of poetic flattery make her feel elated.

But the words that came out of Lily’s mouth was a grumble that could easily be misunderstood, “Hmph, it’s nothing but a flowery speech.”

Lily involuntarily fidgeted in the middle of her words.

‘Wait! This is not right! Aren’t I supposed to be asking questions here? Doesn’t this look like I am trying to seduce her instead?!’

Lily remonstrated herself in her mind, ‘No can do, I need to be fiercer and question her more proactively.’

Bringing her lips close, Uesugi Rei softly blew into Lily’s ear, “Furthermore, that big sexy ⓐⓢⓢ of yours…”

“Hey!” Lily was taken aback. She was originally praising her with such a poetic grace, so how did such an obscene language suddenly come out from her mouth?

What Lily hated to hear the most was obscene language! These words caused her to feel the utmost disgust! But at the same time, her body became feverish and started to fidget. Her breath also became somewhat flirtatious.

She really hated the vulgar language used by the woman, she really did! She blushed upon hearing these words, but from revulsion!

‘T-There’s no way I was a teeny bit excited! M-My body only reacted for a moment because… I was unable to think properly under Uesugi Rei’s influence! No way, I cannot stay like this!’

She hastily took a few steps back and simply drew her katana, “S-Such a rude woman, don’t get close to me!”

Uesugi Rei was also surprised to see Lily unsheathed her sword. She was colored in surprise when looking at Lily’s sword, then she blurted out, “Demon Sword?”

“Huh?” Lily looked distracted. Just what nonsense was this woman spouting, this was but an authentic sword bought from the Genji Dojo, and she actually called this a Demon Sword, “W-What are you saying? If you continue to speak rudely, don’t blame me for what happens next!”

Nevertheless, Uesugi Rei revealed an even more profound and meaningful smile. It seemed like she was getting more and more interested in Lily as she looked at her from head to foot. Rather than paying attention to Lily’s threat, she said this to herself, “Truly unexpected…”

“Miss, you are indeed my destined woman. I see there is no need for me to ask for your name anymore, though I believe your name must be as beautiful as you are. I am sure a female samurai like you will become famous in Kanagawa prefecture very quickly. I will naturally know your name then.”

Uesugi Rei turned around casually and walked to the other side of the bridge, “I still have something to do, but I’m sure we will meet again someday. Bye, my little sweetie.”

Lily stood there with a dumbfounded expression, “Hey! You… Stop right there! How… How can you do this! Why did you kiss me, why are you saying vulgar words to me, you are too ill-mannered!”

Seeing that Uesugi Rei walked away just like this, Lily panicked and stamped her feet on the bridge in a fit of rage.

Chase after her? And cut her down with a single slash?

“T-There’s no need to go that far. It is ironic how I had once looked up to her as a Valkyrie. Who knew she was such a hoodlum like this! It is true that this woman had been rude to me, but she doesn’t seem like a bad person other than that. I had once seen her kill a demon with my own eyes too. Though I will definitely struggle desperately if my chastity is threatened! But there’s no way I can kill someone just because they were rude to me and said a few vulgar words right? What’s more, I still can’t beat her as I am now…”

Lily thrust the sword on the wooden bridge and fell down on her knees. Her hair drooped from her shoulders as she lowered her head and let out a helpless sigh.

Her first kiss was inexplicably snatched away by this woman, and yet she was unable to do anything about it. She couldn’t kill her nor was she able to scold her. On the contrary, she was even called cute to the point that she became a little more docile. Then she suddenly dropped a bomb on her. Just what was that woman thinking! What was she supposed to do against that kind of woman?

Seeing that woman making her way towards the other side of the river, Lily felt evermore edgy. Thereupon, she pulled up the katana and followed her.

When she arrived at the opposite bank, she found that the atmosphere had changed. As it turned out, this was the shrine of Ieyoshi Genji. She had never been here during the daytime before. This place was auspicious and peaceful. There was also that fragrant timber scent that caused one’s mind to relax.

She was kicking up a fuss here because of an indecent assault, that was clearly very disrespectful. She was ashamed of herself and didn’t know what to do.

In the end, she sheathed her sword and didn’t go up to nag at the woman.

She detoured around the spacious area in front of the shrine and looked at what the woman was doing from within the bush to the side. If she dared to act rudely in front of Lord Ieyoshi’s statue, then she would have a good excuse to swing her sword at her.

As she peeked at the shrine from the side, she was able to see the statue of Lord Ieyoshi sitting upright in the wooden temple. The solemn aura released by the statue calmed Lily’s mind.

She shifted her eyes to the front of the shrine and spied from within the bush.

All she saw the Uesugi Rei standing there without moving an inch.

The moment Lily saw Uesugi Rei, she felt the woman was in harmony with nature and formed a concept art unique to this area.

It was as though she had become a different person and was no longer the same seductive pervert as earlier.

Purple smoke rose in spirals from the incense stick in the old temple. For a short while, it had become quiet and peaceful.

Uesugi Rei looked at the statue within the shrine with the utmost respect and knelt on the spot.

She kowtowed three times and prayed very earnestly.

Then she lifted her head and clapped her hands together before she began to chant in silence.

“Huh?”

Lily noticed two streaks of tears running down from the corner of Uesugi Rei’s eyes.

The proud silver-haired girl did not sob at all, her face remained as auspicious as ever. However, Lily could feel immeasurable sorrow filling the air.

Why was she crying?

Why was she so different now compared to earlier? Where did her willful personality go? They were like two completely different people.

And what was up with this sorrowful atmosphere?

Why was it that she also felt a prick in her heart at this moment?

As the sun sets in the west, the wooden bridge in front of the dojo gate was dyed in the color of the sunset.

Uesugi Rei stayed at the shrine in that position for one whole afternoon before she left with her horse.

At the other end of the wooden bridge, a black-haired girl with purple kimono was leaning against the railing. That was a little unexpected even for Uesugi Rei.

“Kagami Lily, that is my name. You better remember it. Later on… if you dare to harass me again, I will not let you off so lightly.”

As Uesugi walked past Lily with her horse, Lily didn’t look at her and looked at the sunset behind the dojo instead. She lifted up her foot slightly and lightly tapped the wooden bridge with her sandal. Then she said those words nonchalantly with quite a reluctant face.

Uesugi felt a throbbing in her heart for a moment. The tear stains were still vaguely visible on her face. She looked at the fairy-like girl with her violet eyes. Though the girl in question was slightly angry, it seemed that she was fond of her angry expression. That was why she was able to tease or even comfort the girl… A feeling of attachment welled up in her heart, but her eyes became cloudy for an instant. It was as though she had some misgivings. She didn’t say much nor did she continue to harass Lily.

“Farewell.”

That was the only word Uesugi said. Her beautiful face revealed the brightest smile Lily had seen to date, but it quickly changed into a playful smile.

Lily’s head was lowered so she didn’t see that smile and no longer paid any attention to her.

Uesugi mounted the horse and there was a thunderous clatter of hoofs as the horse broke into a furious gallop.

Only then did Lily lifted her head to look at her riding away on the horse.

“Hmph, she doesn’t even know how to say a simple sorry? Bah, forget it… it’s for the better if she leaves, I hope I will never see her again!” Lily let out a complaint in a low voice.

However, what she didn’t know was that, when Lily’s first kiss was taken away by her, she had also offered her first kiss to Lily.

Boy oh boy, Spiderman: Far From Home is about to come to the big screen next week. I’m so excited to hit the cinema as soon as it comes out.

But then again, I have applied to join a Trader’s Seminar on the day I am supposed to be watching the movie. It’s a 3-hour seminar that teaches you how to do Exchange-Traded Options and makes a profit out of it. I applied for the FREE Seminar because I had thought at the time, ‘If I want to change something, then maybe I should step out of my comfort zone and try something different.’

It was then I saw a sponsored post on Facebook about this FREE Seminar, so I applied to join on impulse. Now that I think about it, I’m full of worries, what if this is a scam? My feelings are fluctuating between positive thinking and negative thinking repeatedly. I mean, if this really works, then I will be able to secure a second source of income. And maybe I could even quit my job if this goes well and make translating into a full-time business rather than a mere hobby.

Of course, I do not plan to invest big capital into this thing, maybe a few hundred at most, and if I can earn from there and slowly make my way up, that’ll be for the best. But then again, you never know what will happen, my mom even told me that someone who used to play with the stock market fell into a huge debt and lost all his properties. Though I feel reassured as my sister told me that as long as I don’t invest in “unlimited stock”, that will never happen and I’ll only lose what I invested…

Anyways, this turned out to be quite a long post, but long story short, I’m going mad here due to all the grieving this FREE seminar is giving me. Oh, and I’m looking forward to Spiderman.

Nioh’s round eyes glared at its surroundings as if it were one of the mountain temple’s god statues; his rippling muscles danced beneath a faint black gloss as if eager to crush the very stone those statues were carved from as it galloped through the silent streets of Takeshita!

Lily could no longer tell if the thunder she heard was from the storm or the steed, as the thunderous power within it coupled with her own feeble body shaking began to make her stomach attempt to escape from her. The violent galloping naturally caused her to be unable to control her body, her blushing face repeatedly hitting large shapes that were soft yet perfectly firm; Lily was most pleased to concede that those heavenly breasts were indeed larger than hers, but only by a bit.

With each unwilling dive into those soft and elastic breasts, Lily began to feel even more powerless; coupled with the sweet smell of the silver-haired maiden’s body, Lily was getting more and more intoxicated in body and mind. The ferocious galloping and the entwining of the two bodies didn’t aid Lily in preventing further intoxication, though wrapping her arms shamelessly around the other’s neck was mainly from her fear.

Despite the icy rainwater doing nothing for Lily’s heat, and the constant joggling, the surroundings being nothing but a blur allowed her to focus and get a clear view of the silver-haired girl’s face.

“So beautiful,” Lily exclaimed in her heart as it was being tugged by a mysterious force.

The most precious gems ever to be shipped from a foreign land to the Heian empire, an extremely rare pair of violet agates1 whose deep hue seemed to lead to an endless abyss that would suck in one’s soul; though perhaps those eyes only affected Lily…

Exquisite jade was the skin that covered her small and pointed nose, guiding Lily’s eyes down towards the bottom of that near-perfect face where the early spring held the alluring yet majestic and noble pink rose blossom – a divine complement to the silver silk and violet gemstones she carried. Lily’s own deep red rose blossoms began to produce thick nectar as she stared at those lips.

In the few seconds it took for reason to overrule the instinct brought about from being saved by such a beautiful older sister, each of Lily’s increasingly shallow breaths immersed her in the essence of femininity and drowned her vision in a field of stars. Once she recalled her only beloved lying in that cold and heartless stone room with only a sliver of hope to ever awaken, she quickly fell into a state of self-blame at having been possessed by that woman’s strong, gentle, and enticing aura.

Lily scolded internally, ‘J-just what was I thinking?! How can I let this unfamiliar woman who nearly crashed into me and hugged me with no explanation disturb the peace in my mind! Lily oh Lily, how can you be so shameless! Senior sister’s body is so noble, but it has been corrupted by my fickle mind! Lily! Just how can you face senior sister like this! I definitely need to punish myself tonight! I won’t dare to inexplicably blush for another girl anymore!’

“W-who are you?! Let me go!” Lily asked, determined to no longer be uselessly stoked within the woman’s embrace.

Fearing to be thought of as flirting, and being thrown from the horse, Lily uncurled her arms from the woman’s neck and grabbed onto her arm. The woman, having noticed Lily’s gaze simply tightened her grip on Lily’s waist.

With violent swings of her legs and arms like a tantrum-prone child, Lily began to release panicked cries, “Stop! Put me down! What are you doing?! Do you know that you almost crashed into me?! Stop the horse now! Just who are you, let me go!”

Growing irritated at the little girl’s protest, the woman released her hold on the reins to grab the back of her head, unexpectedly bending forward to bind her lips to Lily’s, freezing the girl’s mind.

“Ooph-”

A shocked Lily’s only thought was “I was kissed?!” as her eyes widened and her body stiffened as if electrocuted.

After a while, Lily finally regained her senses from the unexpected act. Realizing that any further resistance would be pointless as her first kiss had already been stolen…

While the woman continued to kiss her, she despaired, ‘h-how can she do this?! That was my first kiss! Senior sister, I…’

Some time later…

“Slurp, Slurp…Mmhmm…”

Lily used her powerless hands to push against the shoulder of that woman, but even so, she was unable to prevent the woman’s tongue from exploring every inch of her mouth.

Lily wanted to keep her eyes open as a show of resistance, but they gradually became half-closed and her field of vision became fuzzy…

She felt her entire body turning light and airy. The only thing her mind focused on was the deep kiss initiated by that woman.

However, her hands never let go from start to finish. They were still grabbing onto that woman’s black clothes in an attempt to resist.

Although they were just as useless since there was no strength left in her arms.

The woman urged the horse to stop on the wooden bridge beside the Genji Dojo’s main gate. Only then did she finally separated her warm lips from Lily.

Lily limply leaned against the horse’s neck, her eyes slackened for a moment.

As she saw her powerless self reflected on the water surface, Lily slowly averted her eyes, only to meet the violet eyes of that woman. Her long silvery hair seemed to have entangled with Lily’s messy black hair that scattered all over the horseback. Their hair was like two silk clothes forming a black-and-white space that belonged to only themselves.

Pure anger steadily built up in Lily’s eyes.

“Slap!” She slapped the woman’s face with her slender hand.

With that woman’s strength, she could completely dodge or even block the slap, but she didn’t do it. Her face turned to the side from Lily’s slap, but she still gently smile at Lily.

That woman finally started to talk, “So cute, and quite feisty too. I am called Uesugi Rei, and you are?”

‘Wasn’t she supposed to ask this question first before forcing a french kiss on me?!’ If Lily was more powerful than her, she would have certainly beaten this woman to a pulp!

And then she would beat her past self that offered zero to no resistance!

The rain finally stopped and a rainbow was forming due to the mist that rose from the river.

But Lily was still wet in her clothing.2

“The only reason that little girl became so stubborn is a severe lack of discipline! I wonder how the Saikanji house educates their children! I will definitely spank her the next time she falls into my hands!”

The guards of the Saikanji house didn’t come after her, but even if they did come, as long as she didn’t faint again, there was no reason to fear them.

The Heian Empire was rarely sunny, yet on this cool day, the sun joyously hung high in the cloudless sky, beating down on a young girl mired in foul air.

“I actually,” Lily fumed, “let that little girl…”

Even if it was an accident, being groped was no less humiliating – let alone it being her first time! She must quickly find the source of these fainting spells, or else it would be a great danger in the future! All because she still lacked training…

She had already descended Mount Ise on her way back to Takeshita, and was traveling through a lonely field populated by only herself and some distant farmlands. The female farmhands hummed an unfamiliar folk song beneath the shade of their conical bamboo hats as they tended the patty fields. Their tanned, rough hands worked to create the healthy and stable lifestyle that brought them such a simple yet straightforward happiness despite not being terribly beautiful.

Despite her attempts, she was unable to picture herself in their position; her soft skin and tender flesh would simply yield under the pressures of heavy manual labor, and she was unsure if she would even be able to do a decent job if they asked her to lift her skirt and wade into the muddy field to tend to the paddy. Besides, with her figure and sensual butt, working outside in broad daylight would only bring unwanted attention -being beautiful was not necessarily a good thing, so she decided to forget about it, yet still kept her deep respect for these workers.

Lily always felt that these paddy fields were full of the vitality of life itself, the rich colors similar to a poem1 from home, it was as though they were parts of heaven and earth itself, the very essence was a work of art.
“Its essence is truly ever-changing, not based on money or something out of reach, but depending on true love and genuine concern. I don’t know the essence of my swordplay, nor how it feels, after I become a female samurai, I’ll try and see.”

As Lily was fancying such a thought, an ox-drawn wagon approached from the rear. Lily called out and asked the coachman if he was heading to Takeshita. Since that was the case, she paid him two mon for a ride back.

Takeshita, a town built along the river. There was an entrance for both the eastern and western sides.

Once they arrived at Takeshita’s western entrance, Lily bid farewell to the coachman and made her way towards Chrysanthemum Inn. The inn was located on the west side of town after all.

It was now three o’clock in the afternoon. The day was still stifling hot just moments ago, but the black clouds suddenly rumbled and a thunderstorm had invited itself to Takeshita in the blink of an eye.

The rain didn’t bother Lily at all, she unfurled the Sakura Parasol and walked along the river with graceful steps. Puddles formed on the paved road immediately and reflected her pure white figure.

Once she returned to the Chrysanthemum Inn and rested up a little, she could finally go to the Genji Dojo tomorrow to exchange for the certificate. Lily felt a lot better as she thought of this. Finally… she was about to become a female samurai.

The day when the weak and powerless her encountered the night parade was still so vivid in her mind.

As she walked under the heavy rain with the parasol in hands, Lily had a sense of slight satisfaction.

The sound of heavy gallops could be heard coming from the rear despite the roaring of the rainstorm. The gallops were so heavy that it caused the entire pavement to shake, and it came in pair with an overwhelming aura.

Lily instinctively spread out her Spirit Power to scout out, but just as the Spirit Power got close to the location of the aura, it shattered without any resistance as though they were ripples running into an iceberg.

“What?!” Lily was undoubtedly shocked. She felt the shaking had become stronger and stronger, so she turned around in a flash.

What she saw at the other end of the riverside road was none other than a black steed that was taller than the courtyard fence. It was running towards her location like a wild, uncontrolled beast!

Before Lily could react, the lofty black steed had already gotten so very close to the parasol girl!

What freakish speed!

How was it possible for a horse this fast to exist? That was definitely not an average horse!

The parasol in Lily’s hand was blown away by a sudden gale. But the more pressing matter was that she was about to get kicked by the black hoof that was thicker than her waist.

It was already too late for Lily to dodge it with her current speed. Adding onto that, the overwhelming aura caused her body to stun momentarily and unable to move from where she stood.

“Be careful!” Came the icy but powerful and sweet voice of a woman.

In the next instance, Lily only felt everything before her eyes turning pitch-black. She could feel a tyrannical power trying to rein in the horse. She could feel the giant hoofs that could easily trample her to death flailing right in front of her nose tip.

Then her arm was suddenly pulled with no questions asked. She was pulled up by that unquestionably powerful but gentle force. It seemed like she was pulled onto the back of that gigantic black steed.

She was soon welcomed by a powerful impact that could easily fling her off and crush her bones as the horse started thrashing around.

Lily unconsciously grabbed onto anything that could safeguard her. At the same time, she felt her waist was being held tightly by a slender yet very powerful hand.

As Lily slowly opened her eyes, they were instantly pierced by the cold as winter atmosphere surrounding the silver-haired beauty. The strange woman had her arms wrapped around Lily’s waist as they sat facing each other on horseback, her neck wrapped by the shameless arms of Lily.

“Ah! You…You are—” Lily said, struggling with the shock of seeing her again.

The woman atop the black steed known as “Nioh” had been unerringly engraved upon Lily’s memory since that night of the Demon Parade; the silver-haired Demon Sword Maiden who slayed the giant Green Demon in Kamakura City, her beauty and charisma mesmerizing to look at, especially for someone coming to terms with arriving in a new world and body.2

Lily had looked up to the woman as a Valkyrie at that time, but now she was looking up at her cold face, as an aroma that refused to be suppressed by the rain welled up from the Valkyrie’s body, granting its immunity to the ice-cold rain to Lily’s blush, which even now began to take hold of her face as the raindrops seemingly began to fizzle off her cheeks.

As Lily opened her eyes, she found herself in a crude and shabby-looking cottage.

“Ugh… Where am I…”

She tried to get up but found her body bound by something rough and durable.

She started to panic, and lowered her head to find that she was bound by a thick rope; a rope that locked her wrists to the wooden pillar behind her, encircled her breasts so tightly that breathing was difficult, and weaved over her bent legs all the way to her feet.

The first course of action she took was to use Spirit Power to break free; however, her Spirit Power only provided a powerful impact. She was unable to cut this obviously uncommon rope without the help of a blade. This type of rope must be the one they use to restrict samurais! If so, it’s natural that she wasn’t able to break free.

That was unless… she used that crimson Spirit Power. But even so, she still wouldn’t be able to cut the rope. Even if she went as far as breaking the pillar and having the cottage collapse on her, there was still the possibility that her body would still be bound by the rope.

Who did this? Who was the pervert who bound her so tightly!

“Oh dear! Big-breasted sister, are you trying to destroy this cottage?”

That voice sounded familiar. It sounded like the voice of the little girl who harbored an unexplained hostility towards herself. What was she called again? Saikanji something…

However, as Lily couldn’t see the speaker, she ought to be behind her.

‘Phew!’ Although Lily felt that it would be very troublesome, it still wasn’t the worst case scenario. If the one who bound her was the bandits or the monsters, or maybe even Akira’s gang, then she would certainly be…

She was really too careless! Then again, that sudden loss of consciousness was totally out of her control…

“You are the young lady from the examination right? What do you want with me?”

“My, oh, my!” Nanako was a little angry upon hearing these. She got in front of Lily and used the horsewhip to press against her chin. Looking at Lily from a higher standpoint, she said with a pouty look on her face, “You… actually forgot my noble name!”

“Hmph, it feels so good to look at a woman like you from a higher ground!” said Nanako as she squatted down. The white panty under her short skirt was completely exposed to Lily, but she didn’t seem to be aware of it, or perhaps she just didn’t care as both of them were of the same gender.

Nanako’s horsewhip slid up to Lily’s lower lip, “I see, I see… did you also forget about the agreement between us?”

“I don’t remember there being any agreement between us,” Lily replied indifferently, but she was formulating a plan in her mind. Much to her dismay, it looks like she had coincidentally been found by Nanako after fainting by the roadside. As her surroundings have been registered in her mind, she concluded that this abandoned cottage was located somewhere around the mountain foot. Lily knew that Nanako was a little envious of her due to their short relationship during the test, but apart from this, she had no idea why Nanako held her in such regards.

Regardless of why, she was honest-to-god too careless. She actually ended up being bound by this little girl, and in such an unseemly way too. ‘Just what does she wants from me?’

Lily saw her katana and other belongings in a far corner of the cottage. They were beyond her reach, so she couldn’t make use them for now.

The thick rope was indeed very sturdy, she was unable to tear it apart even with her current pulling force!

“Alright,” Nanako stood up and moved closer to Lily. Her flat stomach was right in front of Lily’s line of sight, “I know what you are going to say: the bet was one-sided; you didn’t answer so there’s no need for you to keep the promise to become my slave in the event that you lose. But think about it again, Miss Kagami. Just take a look around you, do you think now is the time to talk with such reasoning?”

Lily snorted in response, “Hmph! So you do admit that you’re making trouble for no reason?”

“Who admitted what! I- I am just saying it from your perspective. What’s more, why don’t you take a good look at your own moral conduct last night! For a girl to be sleeping on the roadside with her shirt collar wide open, if the one who ran into you was not me but a man instead, hmph, there’s no telling where you might have ended up by now! It was I who saved your life and your purity, aren’t you supposed to thank me?!”

“Alright, I give you my thanks. Can you release me now?”

“Hahaha, you’re too naive! I saved your life and purity, that means you belong to me now! I have already prepared the slavery contract, how about it? Will you sign it? As long as you sign it and pledge that you will become my slave, I will release you,” Nanako kneeled down again and crawled towards Lily. For a moment there, their faces were a little too close for comfort. They could smell the same feminine aroma from each other, but of completely opposite types.

Lily and Nanako’s faces began to blush, little by little.1

Nanako suddenly became aware of her mistake. She quickly jumped back and looked at Lily attentively. Lily, on the other hand, had a look that she was unable to read, thus making her even more irritated.

She shouted angrily, “Well, there you go! Are you signing or not? Don’t expect me to let you go if you don’t sign it!” Nanako said as she used the horsewhip to press against Lily’s rosy lips, as if to force the words out of her.

As the horsewhip pressed against her lips, it was difficult for Lily to open her mouth to say anything, but she ignored it regardless and the resulting attempt at speaking led to a small part of the rolled whip being shoved into her mouth. Her voice became muffled so she had no choice but to turn her head. A trail of saliva followed her lips as they pulled away from where there was now a damp mark on the whip.

With her face only showing indifference, and a slight blush she was incapable of preventing beginning to form, she replied, “Then you can continue to keep me tied up.”

“You…” Nanako pulled her whip back to take a quick look, “How dare you smear my beloved horsewhip with your saliva!”

“Y-You shoved the whip into my mouth yourself,yet you still want to blame me? Do you think the world revolves around you… Sai… Saihana Naniko!”2

“It’s Saikanji Nanako!” Nanako cried out in another outburst, “Y-You better remember it this time! Even a distinguished young lady like me was able to remember the name of a vulgar, big-breasted woman like you. Yet you dare to forget my good name repeatedly! Hmph, if not because I would feel uneasy as the master to look at the scar my servant’s face, I would have whipped you a dozen times over!”

Nanako stood tall, her arm arched back over her head, poised to strike down with the whip, but suddenly her eyes carried a suspicious glint, as if she had just thought of something.

“Hmph! Are you signing it or not?!” Nanako pushed the slavery contract in front of Lily’s eyes again.

Lily simply skimmed the contract, “Miss Nanako, your slavery contract does not have the name of the slave owner, are you not worried that you will write your name in the wrong place?”

“Yeah right! As if I’m a ditz like you. You just sign your name under the slave section and I will write my name under the owner. Then the contract will be in immediate effect after that!”

Seeing that Lily was not yet willing to submit, Nanako steeled her resolve and began threatening her, “Kagami Lily, don’t think that I do not know what to do with you if you don’t sign the contract. If you won’t become my slave, then I will be forced to strip you and leave you here, all alone. After that, I will leave a sign in front of the cottage saying, 〈Here lies a naked woman!〉”

Lily was shocked upon hearing such a shocking revelation, this so-called young lady was simply too presumptuous. She was really lacking in discipline!

Nanako knelt down and crawled towards Lily again. She used her hands to pull open the front piece of Lily’s yukata. Hesitantly, she looked down only for her nose to be assailed by the body odor of a woman3 more mature than her. When her eyes wandered down onto the oh so plump breasts, it felt like she was being crushed under their hefty weight. Her cute little body trembled with chagrin as she jerked the fabric back to its original position, “You… argh! If you don’t sign it, I really will strip you! Hah, you will certainly regret it then if a male samurai, bandit, or monster happened to walk past and enter this area! It will be too late for regret if you don’t sign it now.”

Lily’s beautiful hair fell from her shoulder, as she grudgingly turned her head to look at the morning rays outside the shabby window, “Then I will just sign it.”

“Huh?” Nanako looked confused. She had intended to keep up with the threat, but she didn’t expect Lily to capitulate this easily, “Y-you really will sign it?”

“That’s right,” Lily murmured.

“……Hmph! Very well! You will be my slave after signing the contract! If you dare to back out, then I will make this slave contract public and shame you for life!” In her skepticism, Nanako added another threat.

“Miss Nanako, I already said I said I would sign it, do you really need to threaten me again?” Lily’s voice sounded weak and helpless.

“Hmph! You should’ve just behaved like this from the start.”

“……”

“Miss Nanako, you tied up my hands so tightly, how am I supposed to sign anything like this?” There was a gleam in Lily’s eyes and she looked down at the dried grass laid under her body.

“Heh, you want me to release you? As if I will fall for that cheap trick!”

“What? Miss Nanako, could it be that you are afraid of me? Afraid that you will not be able to deal with this older sister once you have loosened your hold on me?” Lily provoked her on purpose.

“Hahahahahaha! Why would I be afraid of you! You want me to release you? So be it! What’s more, there are two samurai bodyguards and a dozen foot soldiers just waiting outside the room! Let me warn you, you are only asking for trouble if you try to play tricks on me!” said Nanako as she helped Lily untie the rope.

Her hands were finally free. Lily felt a bit more at ease now even though her body and legs were still bound.

“Stop dawdling, sign it quickly!” Nanako dipped a writing brush in the ink and passed it to Lily along with the slavery contract. The person herself was kneeling beside Lily and observed her every action.

Lily took the brush and said teasingly, “Can I trouble Miss Nanako to hold the slavery contract in place so that I can write my name properly?”

“Hmph, you actually dare to ask your master to do something for you?! Forget it, seeing that you are bound, I will not bicker with you about this.”

Nanako straightened her back and held up the slavery contract before Lily with both hands. This position felt somewhat humiliating, so her face couldn’t help but redden.

With grace and ease, Lily wrote her name, in the owner section.

“Un… this is more like it… Eh?” Nanako suddenly cried out with great alarm, “W-Where do you think you’re signing?!”

It was at this time that Lily’s body suddenly exploded with Spirit Power. She grabbed Nanako’s wrist and pulled the unprepared girl into her embrace. She used one hand to press Nanako on her thighs, and the other hand swiftly grabbed onto the small tachi attached to Nanako’s waist!

For a split second, Lily had the urge to lift up this willful young lady’s skirt and spank her!

However, it was also at this time that Nanako began to resist.

Nanako’s head was all blank when she was pulled down by Lily, but once she sensed that her tachi had been snatched, her anger soured from her chagrin. All the more so when she was pressed against this big-breasted sister’s thigh in such a humiliating posture. Spirit Power began to amass in her body.

“Bang!” Opposing Spirit Powers clashed with one another. Though Lily’s Spirit Power might be a lot stronger, Nanako’s desperate resistance wasn’t weak either. That powerful shockwave caused the wooden pillar to snap with a “creaking” sound. Half of the dried grass that made up the roof dropped to the ground. While the two were fighting for superiority, they rolled as one to the side to avoid the falling roof.

After the dust cleared up, Nanako found herself riding on Lily with both hands pressing down on her breasts.

The incomparably soft sensation transmitted from Lily’s breasts caused Nanako to tremble with envy, while Lily was unable to muster her strength momentarily due to the little girl groping her breasts.

But these subtle feelings only lasted for but a moment.

Nanako shook her hands off Lily’s breasts and thrust her fist into the bamboo-green metal gauntlet hanging on her waist. She gave it a strong tug to snap the waist belt before she sent a punch on Lily’s way. Lily also unsheathed the small tachi in her hand.

“Pow!” Their clash was followed by an explosion of green and red light.

A strong impact ensued from the clash between sword and gauntlet. Although Lily was pushed down, her Spirit Power was a lot stronger. On top of that, Nanako had been sent flying away, but she only slid backwards along with the dried grass since her back was leaning against the ground.

Nanako flipped in the air and landed on the dried grass with one knee touching the ground. And Lily took this chance to cut off the rope tying her legs. She didn’t mind about the rope around her chest area for now even if it was suffocating. She turned over and got up in a kneeling position.

Lily swiftly moved backward until she reached the corner where her belongings were placed. She threw the small tachi back to Nanako and retrieved her own items, namely Seiwa Tamashi and Sakura Parasol.

Nanako received the little tachi and took a battle-ready stance with a tachi in one hand, and a gauntlet on the other hand. Lily shoved the Sakura Parasol into the sash at her back, then she got ready to pull out her sword.

The door was pushed open at this time. Two samurais and several foot soldiers were standing in front of the door.

“Young lady! Are you unhurt?!” yelled the Taihara duo.

As Lily looked at this group of people, she smiled gently and said, “Miss Nanako, there is still a blank spot on the contract. If you want to sign it, I am willing to wait!”

“Hmph! You big-breasted woman, that is where you’re supposed to sign! Don’t be complacent just yet! Quickly, catch her!” Nanako ordered.

It looked like the samurais and foot soldiers would rush in at any moment now, so Lily used the sword shaft to smash the wooden shutter beside her. She took a leap through the window and got out of the cottage.

By the time Nanako’s subordinates circled around the cottage, Lily had already gone missing. All they saw was the foggy mountain woods……
