Minamitsu shoved the bald man into the room.
Within the wedge of time between that and locking the door shut, the resident ghost of Myouren-ji
had, what those inside her profession may call, another think.
Someone without it might say, second thoughts,
instead – but that was a few fingers off the mark. Second thoughts
occurred afterwise of whatever they concerned and lent themselves to mending whichever moral fibre said whatever had snapped. Another think
was a concurrent deal… and the first squeak of the fibre stretching beyond comfort.
And the weight at its end was the man. Named, riotously, Handai Mu – to hear him tell it. Seldom had Minamitsu met a creature as obstinate in its advances as this; even in life, most of the men she’d dallied with on shore leave had been enough courteous to wait until Minamitsu was solidly drunk ahead they stuck their hands under her skirt. Handai Mu had known her for five whole minutes – none of which too brief to stay him from pressuring her for sex at the end of sixth. Or fondling her ass at the end of seventh. Or, in the same, from sneaking a finger up her kitty and attempting in utter earnest to finger-bang her in the middle of a public hallway. He was either absolutely confident… or an absolute, irredeemable scumbag.
But these were frail, human concerns… and Minamitsu had shed those, in faraway waters and an even farther past.
This was what sister Byakuren refused to acknowledge. Mahâ-Vagga
may speak of eleven dependences; yet, for youkai
, they fell apart at the penultimate. On ignorance depends karma; On karma depends consciousness; On consciousness depend name and form.
These had the truth. On name and form depend the six organs of sense,
it went; On the six organs of sense depends contact,
yes; On contact depends sensation; On sensation depends desire. On desire depends attachment,
to which Minamitsu was a testament. On attachment depends existence. On existence depends birth. On birth… depend old age and death, sorrow, lamentation, misery, grief, and despair.
And herein was Byakuren’s failure. Sorrow and death, misery and grief…
These were human
needn’t be born; nor were they compelled to spread their seeds. All required to live on was an attachment and the existence it allowed. Why should anything else matter?
This was the wind astern Handai Mu’s question. When existence was a surety, not a chase; when the only care in the world was time; when no vice, however low, held a lasting consequence… Then, hedonism
was the natural answer. Sex was a simple and rewarding counter to boredom; and, when one had the crude avails of a female form and basic reasoning, a youkai
may find it just as well. Minamitsu could point to a handful who did, herself; even in Myouren-ji
, which had taken to enlisting men with bricks for wits and peanuts for balls, there were opportunities for restless youkai
ladies to get their itch scratched. Visitors, solicitors, hopefuls and applicants. Men from without. With spunk and no shame.
Men like Mu.
And still, it was her female, human side which had strummed her moral fibre first. Her blood was still quick with arousal, and her kitty was already missing its new, pushy friend; and yet, inside Minamitsu’s head, there was a nagging voice demanding explanation. Off-hand, there were a couple ready to sail. Mu may not win a beauty pageant if it was held on a stormy day, but he was tall and had a nice pair of arms below his shoulders. Nothing about his smell turned her off; it was even – in that sharp, masculine, after-jog way – exciting to breathe. Minamitsu could all too easily imagine waking up in a bed swamped with such a smell after a night of intense, under-sheets work-out. There was the piercing intensity in Mu’s gaze, which shied, ostensibly, from no barrier of convention or privacy – and that would have been enticing by itself.
Most of all, however, there was the overt and glaring sense that his attention never fully belonged,
not even when trained squarely on her, to her. That, were it not for Minamitsu’s youkai
body and core, he would never have spared a minute, let alone five, to divert her from watching the flowerbeds hibernate. That there was nothing, to Handai Mu’s mind, she could ever offer him beyond her expertise on youkai
and her mouth around his dick.
all but morally obliged Minamitsu to expose his error. Incredible,
she thought to herself, how much reconsideration you can squeeze between a door and its frame when you’re about to lock yourself in a room with a guy you promised to suck off.
Sister Byakuren would lose her marbles.
She was not the only one who would. Minamitsu clicked the door shut. Then, lips curling into a feline smile, she turned about to face her quarry.
“Fool man,” she told him, all naughty mischief. “To let yourself be lured a youkai
Mu pushed the hood back from his shaven head and cocked a brow. Minamitsu giggled her thoughts. No fear there. Not another think. Only a probing stare and a persistent bulge on the front of his trousers. He’d either jigged this jig before… or really was a consummate bilge rat.
“Ah, forget it,” Minamitsu gave up. “I’m not that stripe of youkai
“Hadn’t pegged you,” admitted the bald man. “And which are
“More of a… a ghost,
I reckon.” Minamitsu shrugged. “Used to be human. Kicked the bucket. Thought it was a crock. Fumed about it something fierce. Whoosh. Youkai.
Mu’s brows pressed a crinkle above his nose. “… A ghost?”
Minamitsu gave him a grin. “Ooh.
Scared now? The stench of death is in the air…!”
“Confounded, sooner,” said Mu. “I’ve been strongly impressed ghosts weren’t interested in… in body stuff
“Think with logic, Captain. What defines a ghost? What it had to leave behind? What it cannot let go? For a ghost, who has lost life, earthly things are the cardinal desire. But, enough about me. About you, now. Show me the goods, already.”
The man called Handai Mu hitched open his jaw, as if to add something witty to the conversation. Then, with a “Too right”-type of nod, he snapped it closed. His broad, long-fingered hands went to his waist, where they began to unkink the sash tying his grey cloak. Minamitsu, giddy from anticipation, hopped up to him with speed that would have given a nyuudou
a nasty shock, and thrust out with a palm against his chest, until Mu was backed up against the nearby wall. Smiling coquettishly, the whilom captain of Myouren-ji
’s Palanquin Ship went to her knees, brushed her hair behind her ears, and waited obediently while the man before her unpacked her prize.
Mu’s cloak at last parted to reveal a plain linen shirt and hakama
trousers, favoured by the Human Village’s male populace. The length of twine ministering to as a belt was worked through swiftly, leaving the trousers at leisure to slip down and pile atop the man’s Winter boots. That left but his bulging underwear in the way.
Minamitsu found patience in thinning supply. Ahead he could, she slid her hands up his thighs and hooked her fingers under the band of his overfilled shorts. Then pulled them down. There was a delicious snag when the band caught on his erection. Minamitsu giggled softly at the clumsy underwear – and guided it with care around the obstruction.
A thick, hard, impatient-looking penis filled her sight. A faint, wood-chip fragrance wafted off the shaft and tickled her nostrils. Minamitsu let the underwear complete its descent on its own and gave all of her attention to her trophy. It wasn’t… anything outrageous. About two hand-spans long (of her feminine hands, anyway), with a ring of foreskin strapped around the ridge of a plump, swollen head. It wasn’t crooked or curved in such a manner that would scrape her kitty in all the curious ways if she were to ride it; it was, actually, as straight as an oar… if the oar was also a little on the portly side. It was the type of stiff, upright cock you wanted
to learn your good spots, because it would always hit them and never bend aside.
And, by some hilarious set of circumstance, it was as bald as its owner. Shaft – creamy and hairless, with a triangle of shaven skin on the abdomen above.
“Here too, Captain?” Minamitsu chuckled, casting up at his face. “For real?”
The shaven-headed (and shaven-crotched) man returned her mirth as a general’s smile. “The war is absolute,” he revealed. “Which you see.”
“I see not here.” Minamitsu pinched his moderately hairy thigh. “Mm. Well. No big deal. I’ll live. Or, you know – deal.
“You don’t like?” he asked.
Minamitsu let fly a faux-dramatic moan. “I’m not cruel
, Captain,” she told him. “I do reckon with the misfortunate fact that men need keep on a layer of fur to stay warm in Winter. Here, though?” She scuffed closer on her knees, until the smooth, warm cock was resting against her face. “Here,” she sighed, “I totally love it.”
Mu ventured no reply, which was as well – because Minamitsu was fast losing all focus to his handsome, well-groomed tool. For a full, dreamy minute, her world shrank down to the eight-mat room, the scent of a raw penis filling her head, and vague fantasies that made her kitty twitch, but which she had no intention to satisfy just yet. At length, Minamitsu pursed her lips, and pecked a gentle kiss on the cock’s rough underbelly. A pleased smile stretched her cheeks when it stiffened in response to her affection. She slid her dry lips a little farther up, and gave the gorgeous penis another kiss. Then, another. And another. She kissed the hairless shaft all over, before moving on to where the foreskin attached to the glans.
With the fingers of one hand, Minamitsu gripped around the meaty base of the cock, and tugged the sheath of skin free of the chubby head. Stripped bare, vulnerable, the head of Mu’s penis twitched under Minamitsu’s heated breath. She brushed the tip of her nose on his frenulum, then kissed the strip of pink, sensitive skin just below the ridge of his glans.
Mu groaned up above – his voice tinted a shade edgy.
“… Making friends down there?” he asked.
Minamitsu reluctantly removed her lips from his cock. “… What did I say, Captain?” she reminded. “I’m not about to fellate a guy I haven’t even kissed.”
“This guy and I haven’t.”
“You have,” he countered. “Sixteen times.”
Minamitsu couldn’t not laugh. “You counted?”
Mu made a mock-exasperated face. “Since you plain weren’t…”
It’d have been a glass-transparent lie if Minamitsu claimed otherwise. “… Got me,” she confessed. “Mm. Fine. If you’re that
anxious to screw my mouth…”
Mu shaped a tense smile. “I want to screw all of you.”
Minamitsu sneered. “As if.”
“Mhm. No,” she disagreed. “All you want to do is to stuff your fat cock up my kitty and unload your filthy semen into my womb. Isn’t it, Captain?”
There was a pause. Then, something dawned behind Handai Mu’s eyes. “… Yeah,” he confessed. “I want to do that.”
“Barbarian. This is a temple.”
“One way to stop me.”
“What-ever could that be?”
Mu nudged the tip of his cock against her lips. “Put that obscene mouth to work. Now.”
A tingle of arousal squeezed the inside of Minamitsu’s belly. She drew in a long breath, the indecent smell of naked manhood making her head light.
She licked her lips. “… You’re the Captain,” she surrendered.
And then, wrapped them lovingly around the needy cock’s glans. Mu grunted his approval overhead, even as the raunchy ghost slipped her mouth farther down, past the ridge and over the sensitive area below. The thick, vein-lined shaft throbbed and trembled in delight when she tightened her lips and began to slide them back up – sucking the entire way. Mu’s cock sprang of her mouth with a bawdy noise. Minamitsu gave the pulsing tip a chaste kiss; then, sinking to its root, she stuck out her tongue – and dragged it up the whole, brutal thing in a slow, polishing stroke. Her reward was another satisfied grunt… and something more.
The bald man tipped her sailor’s cap and dug the fingers of his hand among her hair. There was a brief pull when he grabbed a tender, but firm hold of her head. Minamitsu thrilled all over when he jerked it up to meet his demanding gaze.
“Open up,” he said.
She opened up. Mu smiled like the murderer under his name.
The words slammed into her brain, bowling over every last moral thought. Handai Mu need not have pulled (even if he did anyway) to make her wrap her mouth again around his eager cock. He needn’t have pushed to make her glide it down along the shaft – tongue scraping the underside – until his tip was braced against her tonsils. Minamitsu hauled her lips up, leaving Mu’s tool glossed with a layer of fresh spit. She didn’t let it pop out this time; rather, she paused just as the glans caught on the ring of her lips, and dipped her head back down for another round-trip. Mu scratched her scalp and softly praised her efforts as she worked the whole length of his erection.
“There,” he would whisper, in a husky, breathless voice. “Yes. Like that. Now up… Unh.
That’s it. Suck it here. Good girl. Good girl…”
And so on. Minamitsu toured the length of Mu’s hard-on, gurgling whenever it struck the back of her throat and slurping with noisy relish as she pulled it back out. A dozen or two more flights up and down, and Minamitsu missed her upper stop. A moist smack signalled Mu’s penis suddenly leaving her warm, wet embrace. It was followed by a groan from him and a halting gesture from Minamitsu.
“Nn… Mm. Cap’n? Hold’n. Jus’ a shake.”
Mu’s gaze told everything he thought of the idea. “… Yeah?”
Minamitsu swallowed down the contents of her mouth… only now realising the faint taste of pre-cum tainting her saliva. “You—” she choked out, “You, um, mind if I touch myself a little? I know this’s your blowjob, but… imagining what this thing would do to my kitty really got it going.”
Mu’s face turned a touch suspicious. “… Why would I mind?”
“N’reason,” mumbled Minamitsu. “Some men just prefer I keep my hands on them at all times. You get?”
Whether he did or no would forever stay an unknown. “I can help you out with that,” he proposed instead.
Minamitsu wrung out a tight smile. “Yes. You’ve shown. But, no. This is a blowjob. Nothing more. Sorry. If you absolutely want to do something for me… then roll up your shirt.”
Mu’s head titled a few questioning degrees to starboard. “My shirt?”
“Yup. I mean, you’ve got a great cock and all,” she went on to explain; “but, I want to see more. Unless you’re really
The bald man made to make his reply. Then, another wave rocked his mental boat. “… What happened to ‘mast?’”
Minamitsu tittered. “That’s
what you want me to call it?”
Mu looked entertained. “You did, earlier.”
Minamitsu squeezed out a sigh. “Keeping to the role, Captain,” she told him. “That’s what the pith of being a youkai
is. You get? You play the role… else, you disappear.”
“And now,” pressed Mu, “why have you—”
” she cut in, “now, I’m way too horny
to keep it up. Going to give me something to ogle or not?”
Anywhere, anytime else, a question like that could have done to a flirt what too much tar does to a hawsehole. Not with Handai Mu. With him, it ushered the hand that hadn’t its fingers in her hair up to the collar of his shirt. Minamitsu leaned in and gently slid her lips around the tip of his cock while he plucked the buttons out of their slots. The shirt split down the middle, and Mu drew the halves aside to present his chest and stomach. Oh, niiice…
Minamitsu heard her brain comment.
The war on body hair, which the man Mu proclaimed, proved narrower in its scope than he might have dreamed; and there was no shortage of wiry, dark curls below his collarbones and between his pecs. The pecs themselves were pleasantly defined; and the stomach beneath, while nowhere as rugged as some seamen Minamitsu had known (and molested), was nonetheless flat and toned. Minamitsu slipped her mouth off his erection and her hands up the criss-crossing lattice of muscles above it. She giggled when Mu turned out to be surprisingly ticklish.
And then, he said something that made her
ticklish entirely someplace else.
“Show me yours.”
Amusement melted from her thoughts like snow in Spring. With a tingling hand, Minamitsu moved to obey the perverse order. She gripped the edge of her cropped sailor’s top, and pulled it up under her chin. Her bare, sweat-sheened breasts glistened in the room’s filtered daylight. There was no bra or undershirt to spoil the moment for either her or Mu; and Minamitsu glanced, coyly, up at the bald man’s intense expression.
“… Well?” she asked.
Mu bunched up his faculties before speaking. “… Cute,” he opined.
Minamitsu spat a flustered chuckle. “A girl shows you her tits,” she moaned, “and that’s everything you’ve to say, Captain? ‘Cute?’”
There was a pause, pregnant with anticipation, as the man reviewed her palm-size assets with his eyes. “… Those perky nipples,” he at last volunteered. “They make me want to suck on them until they’re red and sore.”
“That’s better. No dice, though.”
“… Oil them up and knead them, then?”
Minamitsu snorted. “Not what I meant, Captain. I meant, not this time. This time is this guy’s.” His still-hard penis gave a throb when Minamitsu angled it so the head was poking her right breast. A drop of milky pre-cum beaded out at the tip, and Minamitsu rubbed it in a circle around the stiff nipple. “… Mm. Too bad I’m not big enough for a titty-fuck, hmm?” she wondered aloud. “Then, we would have had an excuse…”
“You’re a ghost,” pointed out Mu. “Can’t you…?”
“Shift some fat around? Mm. Technically,
” Minamitsu allowed. “But it’s not all that fun. It’s… Imagine a wig, Captain,” she supposed, “except, you wear it instead
of your hair, not over
it. Or instead of your lack
of hair, as it were. Glued straight to your skull. It isn’t your body, and your body would remind you. This
is my shape; I’m most comfortable like this. Tough break. Want a boob-job? Ichirin’s got the perfect boobs. She might let you play with them.”
“The nun?” Mu sounded dubious. “She would do that?”
“Our dear Ichirin may be the starchiest arse on this end of the Pilgrim’s Way, sure,” granted Minamitsu. “Get her drunk, though, and those inhibitions shed faster than a young snake. There was this one time, even… I’ll trust you won’t tell this to anyone, Captain. You get? There was this one time when sister Byakuren and I walked in on her sharing a bottle with a young man. An aspirant – of less than two months. On the floor – with his dick between her tits – and pissed out of care. Sister Byakuren was livid
“… What’d she do?” asked Mu, in the tones of a captain who asks after newly instituted docking fees.
“The boy, she expelled on the spot. Never even let him clean up. Clothes back on and out the gate. Ichirin? Kneeling on a washboard and house arrest for two weeks.”
“Two weeks of kneeling?” Mu was sceptical.
“Just house arrest,” Minamitsu clarified. “Washboard, nope. That was a couple hours. Six or odd… Couldn’t sit at the dinner table without a pillow for days anyway, poor Ichirin.” What Minamitsu eschewed to mention was that the mandated murder of her kneecaps hadn’t forestalled her best friend from boasting, upon their next drink together, how she herself had seduced and ensnared the young aspirant – on account of him always stealing glances her way at morning muster. “… Anyhow,” she went on, when her partner turned out no further questions, “enough about Ichirin’s tits. Shall we? This guy has rested too long, I reckon.”
There was another of those “Too right” nods from Mu, who lost no self-assurance as Minamitsu repositioned his lube-dripping erection toward her face. At the same time, she moved her unoccupied hand under her skirt. With dumb amazement, she discovered her panties were still rearranged from Mu’s drawing them aside to get at her kitty, back in the hallway. Minamitsu tapped a finger on her swollen clitoris, enjoying the jolt of pleasure, even as she pursed her lips and pressed them to the tip of Mu’s cock.
The bald man caught the hint behind her upturned gaze. He clutched a tighter hold on her short hair – and pushed her mouth down his spit- and pre-cum-smoothed length.
As the penis relentlessly filled her mouth, Minamitsu slipped her middle and ring fingers down, then up between her slick lower lips. She wriggled them up, as far as they could go – then pulled them out, covered in a sticky coat of her own girl-lube. She brought them back up, and began to roughly rub it into her most sensitive place.
Mu grunted, in both arousal and disappointment, when Minamitsu yanked her head back and off his engorged, throbbing cock. Quite another sound issued from his chest when she lapped her tongue around his bare tip, then swallowed the entire cock – lock, stock and barrel – in a single, merciless dive. Minamitsu flicked and slapped her clit beneath her skirt, while she screwed Mu’s shameless cock with her slavering mouth. Up and down, up and down – drool and pre-cum trickling down her chin and slobbering down Mu’s shaven sack. Minamitsu slurped up what she might, but the wide, fat glans scooped it out again each time she wrenched her head up.
She felt, more than heard, Mu’s breath hitch, and barely caught his curt announcement ahead he started to come.
A touch light-headed from the furious blowjob, Minamitsu sealed her lips under the ridge of Mu’s glans, and let her mouth take the brunt of his orgasm. The first, powerful spurt of cum crashed into her throat – causing her to swallow on a reflex. The thick, hot semen clung to her gullet, refusing to go down. All the while, Mu’s cock kept gushing more and more into her mouth: a sticky, virile prize that should have ended up in her belly entirely another way. Mu gasped and groaned up above as Minamitsu softly glided her lips down his still-cumming cock.
And while this would never have been fine from a mutual point of view – while Minamitsu should never have had to tease her own kitty when an able man was right forward – she knew, in the depths of her stomach, that once Mu peered down and weakly called her a “good girl” one last time, that she would think back to this afternoon, long and hard, more than once in the coming seasons.
