Chapter 1

Spoiler

On the twenty-fifth of April 2096AD, a historic experiment took place at First High School. Regarded in posterity as both ‘the embers of catastrophe’ and ‘the dawn of change’, an experimental resident-type gravity control magic-type thermonuclear reactor, more commonly known as the ‘Stellar Furnace’ experiment, was successfully implemented by a high school student still in his teens.


In the Yamashita District of Yokohama City, Zhou Gong Jin is hosting an elderly businessman in his restaurant in China Town. The meeting, held at the start of May, was triggered by the Stellar Furnace experiment, which Zhou has invited Irakiri-sama to discuss.

They discuss Konishi, the leader of an Anti-Magic Doctrine Organisation, and the dubious rumours of violence surrounding the group. Zhou denies the rumours saying the police have found no links between the group and the members arrested by the police.

Zhou suggests the group might be the chess piece that Irakiri has been search for, since he and the group desire the same thing.

Irakiri admits that if the Stellar Furnace technology is realised, his industry will take a heavy blow. Simply put, the Stellar Furnace could cause Irakiri’s energy business to collapse in the long run. Realising that he cannot ignore Shiba Tatsuya, Irakiri agrees to meet with Konishi.

◇ ◇ ◇

After Irakiri leaves, Zhou call’s Konishi and arranges the meeting.

◇ ◇ ◇

May eleventh, Friday night. Hashibami Yuki complains to Wanizuka that they’ve had too much work recently, feeling that more than one assassination a week is too much. Yuuki still works for Abousha, but also has a second employer whose jobs cannot be ignored. Wondering if she can pull of the dress she is wearing for the job, Yuki heads out.

Saturday the twelfth. The papers reported that a bureaucrat from the energy administration and three employees from a power company were found dead in a members-only club used for engaging in prostitution services. All the focus was on the bureaucrat, wondering why he was there and what he was doing. The other three were practically ignored, especially Irakiri since he had no family. Only his name was mentioned.

◇ ◇ ◇

Two years ago, Yuki was living in a small two room apartment, but now she has an 3DK apartment. Through on paper she works for Abousha, she really works for the Kuroba Family. And they had her relocate.

Just before noon on Sunday, Wanizuka visits the apartment.

Wanizuka informs her that the tablet she secured was hacked and they’ve acquired data on who is being forced into prostitution and their buyers. They move onto the main topic, which is any recordings of the assassination the men were planning. Since involves ‘him’, she doesn’t want to be involved but listens to the recordings anyway.

◇ ◇ ◇

Upon the revelation from Yuki’s intel, Fumiya reports the intended assassination of Tatsuya to the main house immediately. Yotsuba Maya is amused but decides that it would be better if Tatsuya wasn’t forced to resort to violence publicly, even if it is legitimate self-defence, so asks Fumiya to take care of it. Maya reminds Fumiya to conceal his identity and tells him to use Yuki since Fourth High is too far away.

The conversation moves on to a member of the Sakura Series, fifteen-year-old Ouzaki Nao, whose magic isn’t suited to escort jobs. She is to be sent to Yuki’s apartment as Yuki’s live in housekeeper.

◇ ◇ ◇

Ouzaki Nao arrives at Yuki’s apartment and introduces herself to Yuki, explaining she was sent as a live-in housekeeper by Fumiya.

Just looking at the petite girl Yuki can tell. This tiny girl is just like her, an herbivore on the outside but a vicious carnivore on the inside.

Knowing she cannot refuse, Yuki agrees to let Nao stay.

◇ ◇ ◇

Within an hour Noa’s things have been moved in, furthering Yuki’s belief she didn’t have a choice.

Once she was settled in, Nao started cleaning the house until it was spotless. This left Yuki stupefied as she did use the automation to clean, but Nao did a better job in half the time manually.

It is just past 8pm. Yuki had reported the intel to Fumiya just after noon, and Naho had arrived by 5pm. Things were clearly advancing quickly.

Nao makes the pair dinner, and upon receiving permission, the pair eat dinner (Nao had served Yuki but didn’t join her until she had permission). Suddenly, Nao asks who she is supposed to kill, which shocks Yuki and reminds her how dangerous this girl is. Yuki asks for clarification and Nao explains she is both a housekeeper and apprentice assassin. She goes on to point out that she isn’t qualified to be an escort as was her original purpose, so she was reassigned as an assassin rather than being disposed of. Nao closes by stating that her assistance on this mission will serve as her graduation exam.

The discussion over, the pair settle on how Nao will address Yuki.

Chapter 2

Spoiler

Konishi Ran is the leader of an unspecified organisation that is known as the ‘Association for Realising a More Human Life and Society than it is Now’. However, this is a front. It is actually an organisation for the more radical members of the ‘Humanist’ movement.

Konishi is also a subordinate of Gu Jie and a former collaborator of the No-Head Dragon Syndicate.

Konishi is on the phone with Zhou Gong Jin, a fellow subordinate of Gu Jie though Konishi is unaware of this. They discuss Iwakiri’s death and Konishi assures Zhou that he will continue the work.

The work is the assassination of Shiba Tatsuya.

Konishi’s investigation has confirmed that Tatsuya has no backing from anyone, and that Kokonoe Yakumo will not intervene because Tatsuya is not his disciple. Plus, since Tatsuya’s combat power is low since he was in the second course, Konishi’s organisation can handle it.

◇ ◇ ◇

The evening of Sunday the Thirteenth of May. Nao is washing up after dinner while Yuki is drinking an especially sweet, iced latte. The conversation turns to the assassination plot against Tatsuya and the name Konishi comes up.

Hearing the name makes Yuki immediately think of the Association for Realising a More Human Life and Society than it is Now and concludes it is probably them.

Nao is unconvinced, as many groups hide their hostility towards magicians.

The conversation turns to codenames, with Nao confirming Yuki’s is Nuts (no honorific). Noa doesn’t have one yet because she is only a trainee, but they will need one when working. They decide on ‘Shell’ because it is related to a magic she uses.

◇ ◇ ◇

Monday the Fourteenth of May. Konishi’s group isn’t religious. What they offer is a form of justice. And that righteousness is a pleasure onto itself. This is why ‘social justice’ is valued over that of the justice of the law. And those that join the group risk their lives to defend the ‘good’ that Konishi demonstrates and destroy the ‘evil’ she lists. Despite the suspected brainwashing, the authorities can find no evidence. Konishi isn’t using drugs to do it.

As such, Konishi does not fear the police as her people won’t betray her and there is no evidence they can use.

And so, she found no issues recruiting people to assassinate the ‘evil magician’ Shiba Tatsuya.

◇ ◇ ◇

Yuki was woken up by Nao at 10am. Yuki is unimpressed, but Nao is insistent on Yuki getting up, making it clear she thinks that a healthy lifestyle is important. Yuki tries to debate it, but Nao’s rebuttals force Yuki to relent.

◇ ◇ ◇

Yuki was watching TV when Wanizuka arrived, leaving Wanizuka shocked that she is already up and eating breakfast. Yuki introduces Nao, whom Wanizuka quickly realises is more than a housekeeper.

After a quick explanation of Nao’s situation, the conversation turns to the matter at hand. Wanizuka confirms that the ‘Association for Realising a More Human Life and Society than it is Now’, also known as the Konishi Order, is taking action.

They discuss that it is likely that brainwashing is being used to get the members to kill for her, but no one knows how it is being done.

Nao suggests infiltrating the cult, but the idea is quickly turned down by Yuki. Nao tried to debate the issue and it ends with Yuki deciding to test Nao’s non-magical combat abilities.
