Stealing Spree Book 3 Chapter 131
Satsuki detailed to me everything that happened that day. Her sister's boyfriend was already like a regular visitor to their house but when they broke up, the guy kept on pursuing her sister. Stalking her, even.
One day, when their parents left for a trip and Sakuma went out to see the house his parents picked, only Satsuki and her sister were the ones left at the house. They still shared the same room at that time, being a high-schooler and grade-schooler, though they're close, the age gap put a considerable distance between the sisters. Satsuki also told how her sister had a complex against her. Unlike her, her sister didn't have any growth spurt so, at that time, they already have the same body build.
And that's when it happened. Her sister's ex who was stalking her for days took that chance to take advantage that their parents weren't home.
During that time, Satsuki's sister went out of their backyard while she was left in their room, lying around since there's nothing for her to do.
The guy mistakenly thought Satsuki was her sister and when he noticed that she's not her sister, he panicked. However, seeing how already developed Satsuki was and the similarities she had with her sister, he got taken in by his l.u.s.t and maybe frustrations as well. He then tried to tie her up using their blanket to prevent her from resisting.
It was at that moment when Sakuma went back after checking the house. He saw traces of dirt from the guy's shoes going up the stairs. At first, he didn't think anything was wrong about it, but when Satsuki started struggling, the noise made by it was heard by him.
He immediately went upstairs, even if that was something he was forbidden to do. Since the family has two daughters, he was put in a room downstairs during his stay.
Though he immediately saw what's happening, he froze on that spot. That's how Satsuki detailed it, though he saved her, it was only when Satsuki shouted for his help did he move. He pushed the somewhat crazed guy away from Satsuki before he pulled her up and ran out of their house while calling for help from their neighbors.
Maybe that incident was also the stem for Satsuki's weird fetish. Remembering that time when Sakuma just stood there, watching. But nonetheless, that incident also cemented his position in her heart.
The guy was caught by the neighbors and then sent to the police. However, since he's a minor, he was only warned and not detained even with the clear trespassing and assault that he did.
Because of that incident, his family was forced to move out of shame. Wherever he is, if he showed up once more, I guess I could vent my newfound anger towards him. Even if that was already in the past, it's about Satsuki. He's also a potential threat.
"I didn't know you have an experience like this."
After retelling the incident, I couldn't find the words to say to her. Compared to what Sakuma did for her, I did nothing close to that. It's all about taking advantage of her and their somewhat flawed relationship.
"You didn't have to know, really. It's something we decided to forget, to move past it. I was saved before anything happened so"
Satsuki tightened her hold on me. Maybe she could feel how agitated I was from hearing their story.
"I understand now why you loved him that much."
Sakuma deserved it. Right. And then here I am getting in between them, stealing Satsuki from him.
"But it's not me who he really likes. You're kind of correct when you told him that he's only seeing my sister in me."
"What do you mean?"
"He's always looking at her. And my sister is the same. She broke up with that guy because of Sakuma."
"Then what happened between them? He said something like a crack was made with his relationship between the three of you. That's why he couldn't set his foot here again."
"I told my sister to give him to me. I asked for something selfish. And because of what happened to me, she consented, she started shutting out Sakuma. And Sakuma turned to me for comfort. I never told him that what happened between them was because of my selfish demand. I used that opportunity to get close to him."
"But that didn't end well?"
"Un. There's another incident, it was the last day of his stay here. I caught them making out in our room. My sister pretended to be me, we have the same build back then so it's hard to tell, especially when the lights are off."
"I'm kind of confused, Satsuki. Why did she have to pretend to be you when it's her who he really likes?"
"Because my sister has the habit of once she gave up on something, she wouldn't look back again. She already gave Sakuma to me so the only choice for her to be with Sakuma again is to pretend to be me. Maybe because it's his last day and she thought she won't see him again, she risked it."
Sakuma probably knew that it's her sister and not Satsuki herself. He went along with her act. Since that's his last day, he also thought that he wouldn't see her sister again. But they were caught by Satsuki and that turned awkward when what happened came to light.
After that day he never set foot again in their house and with only Satsuki being in close contact to him, he also started liking her or he just turned his affection to someone nearer but he couldn't make up his mind because there's still the shadow of her sister.
"Your sister, is she still thinking about Sakuma?"
If she still is then her sister also loves that guy. Despite her habit of never looking back, Sakuma became the exception.
"Un. Every time she comes back home, she will ask me about him. And because of what I did, I also couldn't confess to him all those years, I felt guilty."
Because of her love for him, she prevented the two who clearly liked each other from getting together. But they're still 6th Grade back then. Ah. Considering Satsuki's love for him bloomed at that age, it's also possible that the same thing happened to Sakuma. Maybe something happened between the two before the incident which Satsuki has no knowledge of which led them to have the same affection towards each other.
"I see. What I said back then somehow let you get past behind your guilty conscience. So you asked for my help."
She asked for my help to help them get together. But by then, she stepped into my trap.
"Yes. But you changed me instead of helping me."
She looked up and pinched my cheeks before kissing me again. This time, after telling me the story which they decided not to tell anyone, Satsuki will now openly show her affection to me.
"Ah. There's a time when I was still set up to help you get what you wanted, have Sakuma to confess to you and start dating. That was before I realized I've already fallen for you."
If I didn't remember the emotion called love, I'll probably still push it to make her wish to reality.
"Idiot. I was also about to back out on that wish. I will feel guilty again if I go out with him when I'm doing this kind of thing with you. Once is enough, so I sorted out my feelings and in the end, I chose you despite the bizarreness of your situation."
Ah. Right. That would be like the same setup I put the girls from my middle school through. Openly dating someone else while I got them all to myself.
"Compared to Sakuma, I haven't done anything for you yet."
Apart from giving her encouragement, there's really nothing notable.
"I came to love you, idiot Ruki. This might seem like I'm too simple but your straightforwardness and your very attentive nature pulled me to be so into you Ah!"
When she realized she blurted out the words she couldn't say to me, Satsuki blushed profusely but she still continued on her own reason why she chose me.
"I feel like I can entrust everything to you and you will never neglect me."
I I might neglect her in the future, with these many girls. I couldn't attend to them all if they long for me at the same time. I couldn't say this to her, I'll just try and not neglect her as much as possible. We will always meet in school so there's no way I wouldn't have enough time for her...
"Isn't that the case for every relationship? Besides I'm only doing it first to fill up my desire."
This desire. It's still there eh. Continuously being filled up by all sorts of sources but it never gets satisfied. It will still look for more targets to conquer.
"You're just unaware of what you're doing, idiot. Ask your other girls or just ask Rindou and I'm sure we'll have the same answer."
If that's what she believes then so be it. We got up after our long talk. Since she's now openly showing her affection to me, Satsuki asked for a piggyback ride down.
Err. I didn't reject her but when I cupped her butt to support her, she made a ruckus of telling me to let her down. She's back at being wily too fast. She's only wearing her underwear down there so of course, I would be able to cop a feel on her butt.
Then to satisfy her, instead of a piggyback, I princess-carried her again, just like how I carried her upstairs earlier. And that shut her up as she leaned comfortably on me. This girl... Sometimes she's too violent and sometimes she's this sweet. I will never get enough of her. She's mine now, and she openly admitted it to me.
We cleaned ourselves in their bathroom and after that, Satsuki cooked a meal for both of us. We only ate cakes so after what we did upstairs, we're both hungry.
Knowing what happened in the past eased me up. Now I only need Sakuma to remember that it's not Satsuki who he initially likes before we tell him what's really going on between us.
Satsuki told me when her sister will come home to visit so I asked her if it's fine to tell Sakuma about it. She thought for a while before nodding her head. It's to minimize the dread he would feel when we revealed our relationship to him.
Like a couple, Satsuki somehow got fond of feeding me through her spoon. And with that kind of fluffy atmosphere. Our time together for the day soon came to an end.
"Can I not stay to meet your family?"
I asked her. Though I said that, I feel like that would be a bad idea for now. Among the girls I have, only Akane's parents knew about me or maybe Otoha's grandfather as well. I couldn't really meet their families when our future was still uncertain. But in Satsuki's case, I guess I just wanted to ease this girl up. We were seen earlier so she will possibly be interrogated by her parents.
"Not now, Ruki. I told you they won't like the idea if it's someone else other than Sakuma."
She used a napkin to wipe away the stain on my face as she answered me.
"Alright, next time, then?"
"You're really persistent, idiot."
"It's so they can also move past what happened."
I'm sure they're also affected by what happened, that's why they became strict to her.
"Then next time. I'll introduce you."
"Looking forward to it, Satsuki."
I pulled her close to me one more time and we shared another passionate kiss. Satsuki's fully mine now. Well, there's still some form of love she had for Sakuma but all of it will be pushed down whenever we're alone together.
After that, she sent me off from their door. She might be busy for the whole week since it will be their practice game with another school next Sunday.
I've already reserved that time to watch her. And maybe some time too to visit her during practices.
The sun was already about to set when I left their street and just like the last time, I sent Sakuma a message. Of course, it's not to brag about how Satsuki chose me but to tell him what I found out from Satsuki's retelling of their story and also the thing he asked about.
