“Ladies and gentlemen,” Vienna announced as she gathered all of the students in front of the lodge. “Tonight, we will have a small welcoming party. You all must attend. I have very special plans to encourage a deep bonding experience.”
The boys chatted excitedly to each other, shooting the principal aroused and fervent looks. Even the girls discussed the celebration excitedly. Though I had won the hearts of most of the girls in the class, it wasn’t like we had informed them about NTR Crush, let alone Principal Vienna’s nefarious plans. So, to them, this was all just a good time.
As for me, I had a worried expression on my face. I thought I’d have time to set things up, but it looked like Principal Vienna planned to make her move tonight. How did I know that this welcoming party was going to be her move? Well, it was honestly more of a hunch. The only way she could really stop me was to make her move first, although it left me a little worried wondering what kind of move she planned to play.
“Hakaru…” Rose whispered, lightly touching my arm.
“Yeah, I know. We’re going to have to move fast.” I whispered back. “We need to lure Vienna away from this party and to a predetermined spot that I’ll record. Then, while I’m turning her to mush, you make sure the recording displays where the party is at. The guys will have no choice but to watch while their illustrious teacher is turned into a cum-guzzling slut.”
“Mm… very well, as long as you’re confident you can turn her to mush.” Rose agreed with a nod.
Our whispers were lost along with all the other people excitedly chatting about tonight. Once enough time had passed, Vienna raised her hand to silence everyone.
“My class. Please find your rooms and grow comfortable. It’s just past noon now. We’ll meet in the evening.”
With that, the group of students was allowed to enter the lodge. The place was a massive two-story building with a wood exterior. It had multiple dorm rooms and a few singles. There was a massive porch and patio outside. Most importantly, it was surrounded by forest and was next to a lake. This was truly an isolated place, even when compared to the campus.
I quickly found one of the isolated rooms apart from the dorms. Many of the other guys wanted to sleep in the same room so they could stay up and talk about girls, probably how much they all wanted Principal Vienna. I didn’t get along with these guys. They also seemed to have subconsciously picked up on the tension between me and the Principal, so they blocked me out of their circle as well. Simply put, I didn’t cause them trouble and they didn’t cause me trouble.
“Hey, Matt.” I saw a familiar face walking by my room.
He froze for a second, but then turned back, glancing my direction with an awkward expression on his face. For all intents and purposes, I had taken his woman. However, the result was he had his first sexual experience with her. Furthermore, in the end, he broke it off with her, not the other way around. At the moment, Principal Vienna had put her claws in him, so he naturally didn’t dwell much on that relationship.
“Hakaru.” He said shortly as he stopped at my door, looking like he really didn’t want to be seen with me.
“You know… I heard from the girls that Principal Vienna really likes you.”
He froze for a second, and then crossed his arms and looked away. “If you’re just going to pull pranks, I’m leaving.”
“I’m not joking. Have you seen the way she looks at you?” I waved my hands. “You should definitely confess to her.”
“Wh-why do you say that?” His face still held disbelief, but just enough hope that he was willing to hear me out.
I hide a smile as I looked up at him and shrugged. “It’s no matter to me what you choose to do with your life. Rather, as you’ve probably guessed, Principal Vienna and I don’t get along. My grades are going to suffer, but I think if the teacher is in love, she’d likely grade easier on me.”
Seeing that my excuse was still inherently selfish, Matt became more willing to accept it. His arrogant demeanor started to return and he lifted up his chin.
“Oh? I thought you were up to something? Why should I help you out?”
“I heard it on good authority that at the party tonight, the teacher is going to do something special.”
He shook for a second, his arms dropping to his sides. “I- heard that too!”
“Well, rumor has it, that she plans to date one of the students in the class. She wants to demonstrate to everyone how a proper relationship should exist.”
“R-really?” His suspicion was disappearing the more I spoke.
“Well, she was originally going to pick someone at random. However, if you confess to her immediately before the event, then when she picks someone…”
“She’s going to pick me!”
“You’ll definitely be at the forefront of her mind. It’s your chance to seduce her.”
The excitement on his face turned suspicious for a moment. “Wh-why are offering me this? You could set up any guy as her choice, including yourself!”
“Eh? I’m not interested in her.” I waved my hands. “But as to why I picked you, it’s simple. First off, of every guy in class, you’re the only one I know. Secondly of every guy in class, you’re the only one who has had sex.”
Matt’s suspicion disappeared as his face turned red. “Th-that…”
I laughed. “Don’t be ashamed of that. Use it! Won’t you be able to be more comfortable with her and better seduce her with a little experience?”
“Th-that’s right!” Matt formed a smile. “I really am her best option! I’m going to write her a love letter right now. I’ll have her meet me a half-hour before the event!”
“Good job! Hey, where do you plan to confess? You know, location is everything.”
“Ah… I haven’t thought of that…” He blushed.
“You want me to help you write it?”
“R-really, you will?” He asked hopefully.
“Well, you’ve seen how successful I am with girls. So, with my help, you can definitely make sure she comes.”
“T-thanks!” He then looked away while rubbing the back of his head. “Ah… Hakaru, you’re a good guy. I’m sorry I thought ill of you.”
I waved my hands, “Don’t be. As I said, I just want to increase your chances of scoring here so my grades might improve. I’m being completely selfish!”
“Hehe… well, then please, advise me.”
The pair of us spend the next hour writing a love note that would definitely cause the teacher to have to come deal with it. I slipped a few choice words in there that would definitely leave her feeling she had to see who it was. Matt finally left my room with a letter in her hands and a smile on his face.
Of course, I was only using him. Even so, I wasn’t that good as to get him to put his guard down completely. I used a healthy dose of manipulation too, egging him on until he finally decided to throw away all of his doubts and make a move on Principal Vienna.
Once he was out of sight, the friendly smile on my face dissipated and I left the male hall and headed to the female. There was no one blocking boys from entering the girl’s room. Then again, if the teacher had her way, everyone there would be her sex subordinates by the end of the day, and it wouldn’t matter. The relationships between boys and girls would be gone, and everyone would only be focused on Vienna.
“Hey, Tiana?” I asked, knocking on her door.
Tiana was lying on a bed, reading a magazine. When she saw me, she tossed it aside and broke into a smile.
“Hakaru!” She said excitedly, “Did you come to finish what you started on the bus?”
“Ah… sorry, I can’t, beautiful.” I gave her a disarming grin. “There is a lot happening tonight, and I’d like your assistance.”
“Hakaru needs me?” A silly grin formed on her face. “I’ll definitely do it! No matter how degrading!”
“Haha… well, it’s not that bad. I just need you to keep tabs on Matt. Immediately before the party, I need you to distract him. Do whatever you want to keep him from leaving, even if you have to use your body.”
She put on a pouty expression. “Y-you said I should only use my body to please you!”
“I know what I said…” I sighed. “But this is too important. I mean, don’t use your body unless there are no other options, okay?”
“Ah… o-okay.” She nodded, her eyes still bright and filled with love.
I gave her the location she had to keep him away just in case, and like that, I turned to leave. I had only made it halfway down the hallway when I heard my name whispered softly.
I turned to see a single room. The woman inside it was Principal Vienna herself. Immediately, my hackles rose and I put up my defenses. There was no way I’d let her ruin my carefully made plans. There was no way she’d have heard my discussion with Matt or Tiana, right?
“Can you come here, please?” She asked, sitting down on her bed and crossing her legs.
Looking both ways down the hall, I realized there was just no way I could run. Making a small sigh, I entered the room and closed the door behind me. I stood in front of Principal Vienna, my enemy, with a defiant expression on my face.
“Hakaru… I surrender.” She responded.
“Let’s not fool ourselves. I know you’re playing the game for one of the gods or goddesses, just like that girl Rose. When I put the pair of you together, I was hoping you’d destroy each other, yet, you seemed to have joined forces. I hadn’t anticipated this at all.”
“…” I didn’t know what to say.
Up until now, we had not discussed the game at all. In fact, other than with the goddesses, it felt a little weird to talk about the game openly with a competitor.
“So, I realize that I am outmatched. Whatever plans you had to destroy me, you can put them aside. I’ rather not face the humiliation, when I know that I’m just going to lose anyway. Since I saw the blackmail you had of me, I knew you were a man I couldn’t handle.”
Although her words were sweet, they were difficult to swallow. “Why do you think I would trust you?”
She put up her hands defensively. “You have my word. If you need it in writing, I can provide it. I’ll also allow you to take embarrassing photos of me. Perhaps, I could get out of being filmed having sex with that man. However, if I’m pictured with a student? With that as blackmail, I could never defy you.
I shook my head. “No, that isn’t good enough. Fortunately, I know what is.”
She raised her eyes to glance at me. Her expression wasn’t scared or worried. Rather, she looked resigned.
“What does Hakaru have in mind?”
“I have a skill. All you have to do is make a promise to me, and then we’ll kiss on it. That will be sufficient.”
“Very well… I will do as you ask.”
“What about the party tonight?”
“After the party, I will get rid of all of the boys. Then, there will be only girls for Master.”
I must become Hakaru’s woman. It is the only way.
I struck her with Dirt Scribe and found her thoughts lined up with her words. Although calling me Master was a bit excessive, I didn’t mind this victory.
“In that case, make your promise.”
“Hakaru, I promise to be your woman. I promise that my body is yours. I will champion no god or goddess, and I will not betray you.”
The Locked Promise slammed into effect. If she had a god or goddess to block it, I would have known at this point. It was clear she was on the effect now.
“Very well, then, after the party, I’m going to have some fun with your body,” I told her.
She lowered her head. “As Hakaru wishes.”
I left her room whistling. This was far easier than I thought. Of course, I still didn’t trust her. My original plan was not going to stop. I’d lure her away with Matt, push her down, and then make the whole classroom watch her. However, with Locked Promise, I suspected there could be nothing she could do. The game was set. It was time for the checkmate.
