Chapter 37.6 : Ball of Velos
I replied in a roundabout way.
Midou Kyouka pondered for a while.
「That’s a bit unsettling, you see… But whatever, will you dance one song with me?」
Saying so, Midou Kyouka presented her hand to me.
Now, I’m in deep trouble since she says that she wants to dance with me. I never had any intention to dance with anyone apart from Kuna. But then, I need information regarding the reason for her being here. It might be better for me to accept her invitation. That’s why I decided to dance with her.
「With pleasure, my lady」
I accepted Midou Kyouka’s hand. It was a fine and slender hand. Naturally, it’s not just limited to her hand. Midou Kyouka herself is an extremely attractive girl. That’s why I was really honored to be able to dance with her.
If this was Japan, dancing together aside, I wouldn’t even have the luxury to speak with her.
The music began. It’s the second tune.
We started dancing as soon as the music started.
「Did you come to Velos by yourself?」
I asked while dancing with her.
「I came with Kaya and Shirone-san. It seems they went somewhere else just now though…」
I was shocked by her response. Shirone had come, too? I also realized from her words that Reiji didn’t come along. Though I made sure to monitor Reiji’s movements, it seems I fell behind with monitoring the movements of the other girls.
Taken aback, I looked at Kyouka’s face. She kept staring at my face since I met her. Just by being the little sister of that handsome Reiji, she was also the owner of an attractive face. My heartbeat was rising just by looking at her.
「It’s strange… You seem to be well informed about us」
Her eyes pierced through my face.
「Hahaha is that so…」
I laughed to deceive her. She might suspect me if I talked to her any more…
Let’s be quiet for a while.
Though I was solely focused on Kuna until now, it seems I had to mind the way the people around us were looking at me.
When I payed attention to our surroundings, it felt as if those men were going to kill me with their stares. Since Kuna just left, you might even say that Kyouka was the brightest star in this ballroom. I could feel the killing intent of the men who were looking at me dancing with such women. But I had no leeway to worry about such trivial matters.
I mean, I was worried that my identity might be exposed.
It seems that Midou Kyouka wasn’t aware of my identity, but there’s no doubt that she was suspecting me.
So we continued dancing while I monitored her reactions.
Despite the elegant tune, her breasts were shaking non-stop. I even thought ‘Isn’t the opening on the chest part of that dress actually too stimulating?’ I was really troubled with where to look. I don’t want to look at her with a perverted gaze, but looking away from your dancing partner is also a breach of danc etiquette. That’s why I have to make sure to not look away from her while looking her in the eyes.
We danced while I struggled against the worldly desires running amok within me. But my efforts were for naught since those breasts kept jiggling around along with our steps.
I suddenly noticed her looking at me.
「Uhm, what’s the matter?」
「Well, it seems you’ve passed. Even though you’re lost in term of appearance when compared to my brother, you’re nice enough to go along with me after the end of this song」
It hurt me a little when she said that I lost to Reiji. I mean I know that I lose when compared to him, but please don’t say those words right to my face.
「I’m sorry. I wish to refrain from your request, my lady. I mean, I don’t want to receive the grudges of these men for monopolizing you」
I declined her offer with such a lie.
Moreover, I couldn’t stay too long here since Shirone and Kaya would be here anytime now.
I felt bad for Kuna, but we had to go back to Nargol immediately.
「Quite reserved, aren’t you? But, I like that attitude of yours」
Midou Kyouka was smiling as she said so but, I didn’t have any intention to be reserved at all. In the first place, my status was way below her’s. She was better suited to dance with the king of some kingdom rather than someone like me.
Suddenly, loud screams resounded throughout the entire venue.
「What’s the matter?」
Kyouka and I were looking in the direction of the scream.
「IT’S THE OGRES!」
「WHY ARE THEY IN THIS PLACE?!」
Screams resounded from all corners of the venue.
When I glanced around, I saw eight big shadows blocking the exits of the venue.
The race surrounding the venue was one of the races I saw a long time ago. They were the demi-human race with heights reaching 2~3 meters and pointed tusks growing from their mouths, the ogre race.
Those ogres were barging into the ball all of a sudden.
