Pure Love X Insult Complex Chapter 678-
First of all, I think that the arbitration ceremony done by the Takakura shrine maiden is based on Amaterasu and Susanoo having sex for their ceremony, which is a pledge of innocence
If the child born was a good child then they have to change their hostile attitude, and the child becomes a testimony of their friendship. The model of Amaterasu from this legend has to be the shrine maiden from the ancient times
Having sex with the shrine maiden, giving birth to a child, and theyll reach peace.
The difference is that in the ancient legend, it was a shrine maiden whos affiliated to Amaterasus land, and the boss in Susanoos land created a pledge between the two but, in Takakura shrines case, the two bosses of Yakuza groups, and the Takakura shrine maiden is the third person who mediates the conflict of the two. Therefore, the rule is that the Takakura shrine maiden must have sex with both bosses
Thats the proper way in Yakuza. Men who had sex with the same women became hole brothers1 They have to get along~!
Its unknown whos the father of the child born until the development of DNA identification, so the system did well
Once the child grows up, the face and other elements can show who it resembles, however.
No, but there could also be the intuition that its their child once they look at it from birth.
Well, I get that, but why is the Tsuki and Yomi daughters alternate as the shrine maiden?
They dont always alternate, however
Please imagine this. Right now, there is a pair of priest and shrine maiden in the Takakura shrine
Huh? Ah, okay.
Then, the child between the shrine maiden and the priest is luckily one boy and one girl
Theres one for each gender.
Then, the boy will become the next generation priest, and the girl will become the next generation shrine maiden, theres no problem, is there?
Hmm, well, yeah
Both of them are children of Takakura shrine.
Then, what about the next generation? The priest and the shrine maiden are siblings
Will the siblings give birth to a child? What if the children born are also both male and female, will they continue as the next priest and shrine maiden? Can they?
If you do that, it would get the blood thicker. Once the generation goes further, the risk of the children having physical and mental problems increases
Besides, the reality isnt so convenient that the children born from the priest and shrine maiden are always a pair of genders
Just look at the sisters here, only Yomiko, the middle child has the blood of the priest.
There are no males.
Can it not be the wife or son-in-law from the outside?
I ask Tsukiko.
The bride of the priest of Takakura shrine is determined to be the shrine maiden. Then, the shrine maidens training must start from an early age. The shrine cannot afford to receive a shrine maiden candidate from another house
Therefore, they need the child of arbitration
Children born from the arbitration ceremony can be a boy or a girl
I see. The child of arbitration is the spare child between whats missing from the priest and shrine maiden.
Besides, each generation of priest and shrine maiden cant just keep on giving birth to the child of arbitration
Yeah, the child is the oath that brought peace on the conflict after all.
Dying right after birth is out of the question.
The child has to grow and mature.
The bosses who were involved in the arbitration also had to support the child to let it grow healthy
The bosses of both groups who conflicted will now support the child.
It might be their own after all.
If they have that support, the priest raises the child of arbitration like his own. That becomes financial and social insurance for the shrine
If some trouble happens, the Yakuza bosses will come and help them.
They dont want to break that connection.
In that case, its possible for the child of arbitration can be the nest priest or shrine maiden.
The child of arbitration Its mother is the shrine maiden, and the fathers blood is from the Yakuza boss. If the child becomes the next shrine maiden or priest, then the blood will not be too thick
Yeah, the Yakuza who comes for arbitration come from different families.
The shrine maiden blood is diluted by various Yakuza blood.
However, on the contrary, theres a fear that the blood becomes too thin. Therefore, in the case where theres a child between the priest and the shrine maiden, then that child will inherit the title
The child of arbitration is Tsuki The child of the priest is Yomi, isnt it?
Misuzu looks at Yomiko.
Yomikos the child of the priest.
The previous shrine maiden was Hazuki-sama. Meaning, it was the child of arbitration
The mother of the three is a Tsuki.
Theres a priests child among them. In that case, to keep the concentration of the blood, the next shrine maiden has to be the Yomi child
As expected, Yomikos the default next shrine maiden.
Therefore, the eldest, Tsukiko, has always been humbling herself to Yomiko.
Yomiko herself also acted as the representative of the Takakura family.
Yomiko showed a glimpse of the Miko power.
Furthermore, it seems that her parents were tolerating Yomiko using her power.
Could it be that they overlooked most of what Yomiko does because shell be the next shrine maiden?
Either way, Yomikos given the preferential treatment among the three sisters.
If the Tsuki shrine maiden has a Yomi child, then that child will be the next shrine maiden. On the other hand, if the shrine maiden was Yomi then the next shrine maiden has to be Tsuki or the blood would be too thick
Therefore, Tsuki and Yomi serve as the shrine maiden alternately.
But, I no longer have the Miko power
Mana embraces her naked body from behind.
I cant become one anymore
Thats right. Therefore, I must become the next shrine maiden even if the blood becomes thin
Im already prepared
Hmm, wait a second
Mana asks Yomiko;
Hey, Yomiko-san, its about the Miko power youre thinking
Yomiko looks back at Mana.
Its the power to force the people to the right direction
Thats just letting everyone listen to what Yomiko says.
Its a power to make people act according to ones will.
Yes, thats right
Yomiko looks at me.
Yomikos power was still weak, but it was a compelling power.
Is that all?
Is that all? What?
Yomiko looks at me with a surprised face.
Was there some other power?
Its the satoris power2 a power to read the other partys mind through sex, isnt it?
Master has experienced Shingetsu by having sex with me, so he knows that having sex shows such power
I heard the story about the shrine maiden mediating with the Yakuza by having sex.
I was sure that the shrine maiden also had that power.
Does the Takakura shrine maiden have no power like that?
Was it really just a power to manipulate people at will?
Can they really use only that power and mediate with the Yakuza?
I think there is. However, Yomiko-sama doesnt have it
Michi looks at Tsukiko.
Tsukiko-sama, you do know about it, dont you?
Tsukikos spine suddenly shakes.
What do you mean?
It means that Grandfather fooled us
I know that Takakura shrine was one with a long history with it
Thats what Misuzu first told me.
However, Grandfather endless talked about the story of the wandering maiden who ended up with Takakura Shrine at the beginning of Meiji Era, so there was an impression that the Takakura shrine maidens power were all coming from the wandering shrine maidens
Yes. Therefore, we didnt think about the Takakura shrine itself
Ruriko also speaks.
But, why is Takakura shrine the place to gather for those wandering maidens who lost their place due to the suppression of the Meiji government?
Could it be that Takakura shrine is a place where Miko power was famous even before the wandering shrine maiden came in?
Misuzu looks at Tsukiko.
I see, the shrine maidens there were famous from the start.
The wandering shrine maidens can consider asking for help.
I dont know
I think you already understood from when Nei-chan and I were talking about earlier
Earlier? Oh, the story about Amaterasu and Susanoo?
Theres a theory that the Sun God, Amaterasu, is based from Amateru, but as for the God of Moon, Tsukuyomi The two faiths were ancient. They were born from the reverence on the Sun and Moon, which is the nature
However, faith that only embraces nature gradually disappears as the dramatic stories told at the age of heroes begins. The sun god, Amaterasu, is one of those that survived the hero drama legends but, Tsukiyomi, the moon god hasnt established a dramatic story
Tsukuyomi hardly appears in Kojiki or Nihon Shoki after all
Takakura shrine, a shrine dedicated to Tsukuyomi is an ancient one!
I see. Takakura shrine was established as one that enshrines Tsukuyomi even before the story of Kojiki and Nihon Shoki were formed.
What I noticed is the later. The story of Susanoo has eroded the faith of the sun god Amaterasu and moon god Tsukuyomi, and the myths did a patchwork
Myths are a collection of old and new stories added, pasted, shaved off, and arranged to a single form.
Takakura shrines Miko power must be one of the patchworks as well
The wandering shrine maidens power was the new one, but there was another power before them
The power of the wandering shrine maiden and the power Takakura shrine maidens originally had.
With the two powers combined, they have obtained a much higher power
Misuzu asks. Tsukiko;
I dont know anything
She looked down and said.
Indeed. But, Ive been wondering since earlier
Ruriko speaks while brushing Lunas hair.
Earlier, Luna-san said that her father wished that she was a boy instead
Thats because if Luna-sama were a boy, then she couldve been the priest. With the state now, the next Shrine maiden must give birth to a boy
Yeah, if there were no boys among the child of arbitration, then
The currently present on the shrine is Tsukiko-samas mothers sister. Kiyomi-san means that its the Yomi child, that means that she was the daughter of the former generation priest and shrine maiden, am I wrong?
Ruriko asks with a gentle smile.
Yes, However, those who separated from the Takakura shrine isnt allowed to return to priesthood again usually. After Kiyomi-sama left the shrine, her shrine maiden training has stopped, and
How about Kiyomi-sans children?
Ruriko asks, cutting off Tsukikos line.
Theres two boys and one girl
And if her daughters start their training now, can they become shrine maidens? Can the boy become a candidate for a priest?
No, thats not allowed, even so, those people dont know anything, so theyre trying to put Kiyomi-san as the shrine maiden
The Yakuza who took over Takakura shrine intends to have Kiyomi-san as the substitute shrine maiden?
Err, if I recall, hes Satake. Unryu Kaizan Mori familys 7th Generation Patriarch, Satake Nobuo
Hes the big boss.
Then, let me ask; Whos the father of Kiyomi-sans children? What is his job?
Ruriko asks. Tsukiko hesitates to speak.
Hes Yakuza, isnt he?
So the sister of the late shrine maiden is married to a Yakuza?
Edie, why do you think so?
Earlier, Luna said that shes an offering
Err, what do you mean by that?
Its somewhat embarrassing to ask Edie, the meaning of a word that Im native.
But, if I dont know, then Ill ask.
It means that shes a food offered to the Gods
Huh? What does that mean? Lunas food?
Darling, think about it, theres three of them but what would happen to those who couldnt become a shrine maiden?
I look at Luna, Yomiko, and Tsukiko.
Well, if they didnt become a shrine maiden then theres nothing to be done so they could live somewhere else?
Thats what I want.
No, they become offerings!
Edie said. Luna looks down.
Wait. Offering them to the gods as a meal. Could it be?
I cant believe that it happens even in the current era, but
Are they killed off as human sacrifices?
Edie shows a dumbfounded face.
Darling, its the 21st century, you know? What age are you living in?
After the foods offered to the gods were held up then who will eat it? Its not gods but humans
Ruriko tells me
Eating something dedicated to God brings us closer to them and gives us protection. Did you know about the ritual Naorai? 3
Thats my first time hearing it.
I didnt have the Miko power, and Yomiko-oneesamas the one to become the next shrine maiden, Im not a boy so I cant become a priest either. Therefore, I was decided to become an offering
Its okay now, Luna-sama will not be an offering to the Gods anymore
Tsukiko tells her younger sister.
I dont get it.
I at least get the meaning of offering to the gods but still
How did Luna escape that fate?
Thats because Onii-chan ate her first before shes offered to the Gods
Those who didnt become shrine maiden and didnt have the power had that fate awaiting them
After theyre offered to the Gods, they are paid to the Yakuza, and they become their toys.
If my father were alive then hed take her. As hes dead and the status is given to the next generation, hes lost the authority
In that case, the boss which is a relative will want to take custody of her by all means
Take custody? But theyre not going to take care of her.
Theyll probably make her a sex slave or a lover.
Back then, Yakuza does rape their daughters.
It gives them a sense of superiority and pleasure.
But, Luna-sama is okay now. Luna-sama is in Kuromori-samas hands through Kouzuki-sama. She wont be sold off to someone else. I trust that Kuromori-sama will take care of LUna-sama
What about me?
Yomiko speaks up.
Ill talk to Jii-chan about Yomiko tomorrow
Theres no problem. Ruriko and I will also talk to Grandfather
Yes, if anything happens, well protect Yomiko-san even if we have to threaten Grandfather. There is nothing to worry about
Thank you. Kuromori-sama. Misuzu-sama. Ruriko-sama
Tsukiko bows her head.
Putting all that aside, Tsukiko-san, youre the worry
If were to follow the proper way, then the next shrine maiden has to be the Yomi child. The Tsuki child, meaning, you shouldnt be the next shrine maiden
But, youve always been trying to make Yomiko-san give up so you could be the shrine maiden
Uhm, I dont get it but, Why are you worrying about that, Tsukiko?
I feel like shes hiding something inside.
Also, the other Miko power, what was it Michi? Satori? Does Tsukiko have it?
Danna-sama, what do you mean?
No, its just another possibility Im thinking, could it be that Tsuki and Yomi have different Miko power?
After all, Tsukiko and Yomiko are different after talking like this. They feel different
Yeah, somehow, I feel like Im being sucked into the dark sea at night.
Yomikos power is to make people follow what she says. In short, Yomiko sends but doesnt receive. Its a plus power going outside
Thats what I feel.
So could it be that Tsukiko has the opposite? Tsukiko absorbs our minds into her, and she doesnt release anything. Shes never released anything so I didnt notice it until now but, could it be that shes already using her power?
Tsukiko looks up at me.
Could it be that the power to make people obey which Yomiko uses was the one the Takakura shrine maidens originally had and the power the wandering maidens use was the power to read through peoples minds, I thought
Those who adopted the ritual of arbitration through sex were the wandering shrine maidens. They could see through the other partys mind by having sex
Then, the descendant of the wandering shrine maiden is the Tsuki child, that is Tsukiko.
Please have sex with me
If you do, everything will be clear!!
1. just like rod sisters
2. A yokai who can read minds
