Now you're kinda torn. You do want the comforting presence of your girls and to ask them what they want to do, but at the same time you want to do the sequel scenario. Both because you know full well that sometimes you just can't stop the first stage, and because you're curious about 'that'. "I think I'll go for the sequel scenario. You've got me curious about what 'that' is."
The Ran grins widely, showing off all of her teeth as those eyes become gleeful, narrow slits. "Oh I'm certain you'll enjoy it. I know I will be after all. Let's see...I suppose I need to transport you then." The Ran declares standing up and stretching idly as her tails do the same, reaching out and winding about you to pull you back into a familiar and comfortable embrace with her tails holding you in the middle of them, holding and stroking your body idly while one runs across your face with a gentle touch. "Now then..." The Ran walks over to a wall and pulls aside a portion of the wall to reveal what looks to be some kind of radio system, "I'll be bringing our princess to another castle, Gissele."
You hear nothing but static and muffled cursing from the other end of it before Gissele finally responds, her tone irritable at best, "Fine, I'll go get ready. And Ran?" Her voice takes a turn for the sweet," I'll be getting back at you for this."
"I'm certain you'll try ma'am." The Ran responds a touch smugly before closing the communications booth and making her way towards the hole in the wall she'd used to enter before. She reopens the hole and peers outside of it as you get a breath of the wilderness air. This underground jungle is a fascinating place, you kinda want to explore around it a bit if you ever get the chance to. "Well, now it's time to take you to the Keep."
"Alright." You say in response. This is officially out of your hands, so you simply trust the Ran to do what she needs to do.
The Ran leaps through the hole and bounces off of a tree to another and starts to climb up them to reach their higher limbs. Once there, she starts to jump from tree limb to tree limb at a pace that doesn't leave you a terrified screaming wreck, which is awfully nice of her to do. "So then, do you want me to explain this scenario to you while we're on the way there?"
"If you could, please. I imagine further testing on my part would be unnecessary, at least for this, so having things not be a surprise would help." You say in response. You're actually quite enjoying the view, or at least as much of a view as you can get while being suspended in fluffy tails.
You are also enjoying the touch of her fluffy tails on your body, even if they aren't slipping through your clothes and playing with you intimately. "Well, it's a simple little course really. You see, we're going to play the 'Saving the Princess from the Castle'. You'll be taken to a 'Castle' in the jungle and held in the keep while your girls will attempt to breach the keep, get past the guards and rescue you. There will also be treasures placed systematically around the keep for them to gather and make use of if they wish to, and of course various traps and nefarious end awaiting them. Also, plenty of monsters of both the 'mook' and 'boss' designations. It's quite possibly the best course we have in terms of experience gain to time invested."
"And it's got a 99.9 percent survival rate for the hostages!" Ran claims.
"Interesting..." You say, as you're actually pretty curious about how the event plays out. On the other hand... "Er... 99.9%? Do I want to ask why it's not a straight one-hundred?"
"Oh you know how it is, sometimes a captive gets too excited and sometimes a captor gets to having a bit too much fun." She shrugs her shoulders and smiles over them at you, "I'm certain with how sturdy you are that first one won't be a problem."
"Ah, so that whole 'resist seduction' thing is still in play then." You say, feeling a touch relieved.
"Oh, yes. That's still in play. I mean, why wouldn't it be? Since you're in the keep you'll have to play your part as the damsel and balance co-operating with your captors and resisting to keep them from taking liberties with you and breaking you in, not really in this simulation. Of course, if you resist too much or in the wrong ways you'll burn up good will or their interest in you and that usually...doesn't end well when you're being held by a mon who is powerful enough to own their own castle keep and defend it from all comers. They usually have subordinates or pets they may pass you off to."
"So is that being handled by you, or is it going to be a different girl handling that part?" You ask, wanting to get as much information as you can.
"Oh no." The Ran says with a wide smile, her eyes lighting up with glee, "We've got a whole different person playing the part of the Dark Queen of the castle. I'm certain you'll enjoy it when you see her."
"Well, you don't have to worry about me being unconvincing about how nervous I am." You say, feeling a touch nervous now that you're facing a genuine unknown again. One that you're going to have to learn how to play with right very, very quickly.
"Oh yes, It's going to be fun to watch!" The Ran sounds decidedly excited really, like she just can't wait to see what's going to happen, "I get to play the Dark Lieutenant, meaning that if you mess up I'll likely have first shot at you." One of her tails rubs your stomach comfortingly, "Don't worry if that happens sweetie, I'll keep it to a bit of fierce cuddling instead of anything serious."
"Thanks." Your response is slightly relieved again, and you calm down a bit. Still, you need to prepare yourself for what's ahead.
You start to exit the odd underground jungle, the trees thinning out fairly quickly as the Ran's jumps start to cover more and more distance. Eventually you see a great wall of rock in from of you which the Ran leaps straight towards, not bothering to protect herself as she carries you both straight into and through the wall of rock, leading to you being in a cave lit by torches. Their orange glow gives the cave and eerie hue, and you can hear things moving about in the cave, but can't see them in the dim light. Occasionally you see what you think are glowing pairs of eyes, but they disappear to quickly to be sure. The Ran's hold around starts to feel more and more like a comfort as the cold, cave air starts to seep into your exposed skin.
"Wow, you guys really know how to set the stage." Creepy though it may be, you really do have to marvel at just how thorough the Gym's staff have been at this entire thing. It's one thing to have an underground jungle, but a massive underground castle as well? With all the bells and whistles to make it feel like it really belongs to some dark queen? You're equal parts impressed and nervous.
"Oh, if you think this is something, wait until you actually see the castle." The Ran informs you as she starts to march through the dark cave, tortches lighting up in front of her as she makes her way along as they shut off behind her as she leaves, always allowing a wall of darkness to exist behind you from which you can just feel yourself being watched hungrily. You suspect the only thing keeping you safe is the fact that you're in the Ran's tails.
"I would hope." The Ran speaks up, looking over her shoulder calmly, "That everyone in this tunnel knows what happens to people who annoy me."
...And just like that, the feeling fades away and you're left alone with the Ran.
"That many mons eyeing me like a piece of meat, huh?" You say with a nervous chuckle.
"Less a piece of meat, and more a buffet of manliness." The Ran assures you as one of her tails strokes the top of your head soothingly in long, slow rubs, "Between your scent and appearance, many touhoumon will find themselves direly tempted to have a taste of you, meaning that you will likely face more encounters than most trainers will, and potentially draw the interest of touhoumon that would not bother with that ordinarily."
Now that you think about it, you already have run into scenarios that most trainers wouldn't have. "That makes sense. Kogasa alone wouldn't have come out for just anyone, I think."
"Precisely. There's something about you that makes you exceedingly attractive to touhoumon." She explains in more detail, "Besides your rougish good looks, I mean. You have an attractive scent on you, one that would wake up the hunger in most any touhoumon. And more than that, the way you act and carry yourself combines confidence and vulnerability into an intoxicating blend that's just..." The Ran sighs and pulls out a hankerchief, dabbing her face with it, "I'm getting hot just talking about it."
...Well that's always good to hear, right?
"To put it simply, I'm Touhoumon bait. Really effective bait." You say, not quite sure how to take that since being attractive to Touhoumon was a massive double-edged sword.
"You're like the opposite of that disgusting Repel stuff that you humans make." The Ran agrees, taking a turn in the maze of tunnels and picking up the pace in her walk.
And now you have to deal with the fact that you're like a walking attractant. You didn't know that before, but it explains a lot. "I have to agree with the idea that my adventure is going to be quite a lot more interesting than most."
"That aside, how close are we? I'm kind of excited now."
"You'll be seeing it in just a moment." The Ran informs you as she charges forward, running up a roughly hewn set of stairs in the stone and reaching the top and passing out of an exit. It takes a moment for your eyes to get used to the change of light, but...there.
There's a huge, ominous fortress sitting in the middle of this dome in the underground area, surronded by a thick, black trees. It has numerous peaks and massive gargoyle statues decorating the top of its form, and countless lesser gargoyles protecting other points all over the castle. From the castle, you can see eerie lights glowing out of some of the windows on it. "Some of the girls thought this was a bit much, but I think it's perfect personally."
"Sheesh. If you needed to do a superhero show, this would be perfect for the villain's lair." At this point you're kinda just wondering what it took to get all this built.
"Well, isn't it wonderful for you then that we're planning something similar!" The Ran says enthusiastically, "By the way, by selecting to do this you agreed to a vocal contract that we own the right to your image that we record here today." Wait what.
The Ran skips and hops down the side of the cliff, easily making each jump before she lands on the soft earth and takes off at a sprint towards the castle, passing through the forest at high speeds and not slowing down even as you see the occassional touhoumon watch you pass by.
"You're filming this? ...Is this training alone, or an impromptu recording session as well?" You're just a touch suspicious of the Ran's intent now, considering that your getting raped was a real possibility.
"We record most everything that goes on in the facility, for security reasons." She responds, "The battles, the training routes, the locker rooms. You'd be amazed the sorts of vandalism and criminal acitivities people could try ot get up to. It just so happens that we also have television channels that people can watch for exciting matches and events on, as well as watching people on training courses. It helps fund the Gym, giving us a bit more funding to work with than just what we get from the League."
"I can agree with that. I have to wonder what happens with the recorded erotic stuff, since that seems to happen at least some of the time."
"Heavens, what kind of bawdy house do you think we run here?" The Ran is aghast and horrified by you statement and the implciations of it. "Obviously we can't broadcast that on television, it breaks all sorts of rules. And, I'll have you know all our staff are professional and won't start anything if you don't. Any sort of tawdry affairs that happen here are strictly at the fault of the trainer not being able to hold back their own impulses." The Ran says all that with a completely straight face, "...Well, the mon may do a bit of seduction, but that's part of the training!"
"You girls don't keep it for your own use?" You ask, looking rather clueless in the 'what are you talking about' sense. This may or may not be an act on your part.
"Oh no, of course not. We've always got plenty of gym trainers to play with anyway if we have those sort of urges. We sell the video's to other, less fortunate touhoumon or people." She declares, "You would be amazed how popular they are with the women in town. We actually have a lot of people order them from the nearby towns as well. It's where we get about a third of our total funding."
...You can't tell if she's serious.
"Yet more incentive to not give in, then." You roll your eyes as you say that, since you don't have an exhibition fetish.
"Oh, don't be like that." The Ran prods you with her tails, her tone chiding, "Of course we don't sell sex tapes. I already told you that we pride ourselves in our professionalism...mostly." She admits as you draw closer to the Castle. The great gates open up for you, allow you both entrance as the Ran sprints through them, and you watch them close shut behind you.
"That aside, we're almost to the keep, huh?" You ask, feeling the need to make at least a bit of small talk.
"Technically we're in it already, since we've passed the gates." The Ran points out to you as she opens up the front doors and walks through them, calmly carrying you through the eerie interior. The castle is lit only by blue flames coming from torches. "Personally, I think the blue flames add to the atmosphere." The Ran informs you as she leaps up a staircase.
"Sorry. I've just never been in a castle like this before. And yeah, the blue flames give it a kind of ghostly appeal to it." The entire place would give you the creeps more than it already does if you weren't practically submerged in golden fluff.
Being submerged in this golden fluffy is really nice, honestly. It's so warm and soft. It's sort of like being in SlKogasa, in a way. Being held and cradled and cared for softly. The Ran reaches up to one of the torches and pulls down on it, revealing that it was a leve and lead to an elevator! "Here you are, just ride this up and cooperate. If you want to have the most fun, I'd suggest you play along." The Ran tells you with a wink as she extracts you from her tails and sets you in the small elevator.
You nod in response to that. "See you around, then." Now you're by yourself, riding an elevator to the top where you'll be held captive by a mon you don't know while your girls work to rescue you. All the while you need to resist your captor's advances properly, which will likely require you to analyze your captor and listen to her carefully.
Should be interesting.
The elevator closes shut around you, steel bars remarkably like a cage forming a door and...actually, looking around you this whole thing looks an awful lot like a cage.
Ran waves cheerily to you as she pushes the lever torch back up, shutting the wall and leaving you in darkness. You hear a creaking, groaning noise as the elevator clanks noisily and begins a slow, steady ascent in the darkness.
...Turns out you were right! This castle has a down right terrifying atmosphere when you're not bound up in those tails and certain in your safety with the Ran!
You don't really have to 'play along' in this case since you're actually kinda scared now. This is just a simulation, but they did a really good job with the atmosphere. You might have had things explained to you, but immersion trumps expectation you suppose.
Your cage jerks about in the shaft as you hear something land on top of it, shaking you about in your prison. You can hear heavy breathing from above you as something reaches through the bars and runs its fingers along your cheek. "Ah...such a cute, little boy." The voice comments, "I could just eat you up, you know. Say...how would you like to drown in darkness with me? I promise I'll make you feel good until you can't feel anything else if you say yes."
You jerk away from the touch on reflex, even though you already know you can't escape. "I don't even know you!" You say, not really having to feign fear, but not outright denying your captor either.
"Oh, but we'll get to know each other very, very thoroughly." She says above you, giggling gleefully as you hear it echo all around you.
Then you realize those aren't echoes.
More hands reach in out of the darkness, prodding your chest, butt legs and one caressing your head again, and as one trails up towards your upper, inner thigh a commanding, somewhat familiar voice cuts in, "Cease this foolishness. I didn't give you permission to play with our guest." The hand immediately withdraw from you and you feel whatever was on the top of your cage leave. Your cages ascent ceases and you watch as black, velvet curtains are drawn back to reveal-
Is that Gissele? She looks...different. I mean, before she was wearing a loose sweater and jeans and had her hair up in a pony tail. She was pretty, sure, but not like...this.
She's wearing a dark purple dress that hugs her curves perfectly while leaving a large amount of her skin covered. The dress also helps support her bust and reveal to you that, yes, she does have a very 'motherly' figure to her. With her hair down and flowing across her shoulder and chest, you can't help but feel an impression of regality from her as she is now.
You blush and squeak when you find that you're being groped all over, and pretty much land on your backside when said commanding presence tells the offending mons to back off. That's when you get a good look at the woman who commanded them. She's... Gissele. All cleaned up, dressed up, and playing a role with a costume that almost makes you want to break down laughing. That, however, would be rude so you don't do it. You get the feeling that just because she's human, doesn't mean she's willing to get professional on your rear. So instead you just stare, blushing yet somewhat fearful. Or at least as much as you can manage, all considering.
Gissele stares at you impresioully, her professional mask one of perfected disinterest as she watches you cower from her. "Get up." She orders, her tone carrying an edge of command to it that reminds you eeriely of your mother when she was in a bad mood.
You do so, noting that this is nowhere near the point at which you need to start resisting.
"Walk with me." She orders, gesturing with a closed fan to where you're supposed to be going, "At the moment, you are my captive and my guest. If you do not wish to become the prey of my minions, you will be certain that your behavior is..." She stares you in the eye and you get a little shiver by the gleam in them, "Impeccable."
You do as you're told, and make sure to pay close attention to her. From the sounds of things, you're going to need to do a lot better than when you were just dealing with Ran. "Yes, ma'am."
"At least you are better behaved than the last mongrel who was brought here." She states as she walks alongside you, her heels clicking on the stone floor of this narrow hallway. You're actually almost bumping into her as you walk, and you get a whiff of a sweet scent that makes your head feel a bit funny after you catch it. Some sort of perfume, "I expect that you hold delusions of escape." Gissele states as you walk, "It would be in your best interest not to cling futilely to those. No one who has been brought here before has ever escaped. If you learn and behave properly, then you will find yourself..." Gissele reaches out and runs one gloved hand down your arm, sending shivers down your spine at the touch, "Comfortable." She finishes, a hint of a smirk on her lips as she sees your response.
Okay, wow. She is just...this is...you did not expect this when dealing with a human woman.
You're definitely going to have to ask Gissele about this when this is all over, because this doesn't quite feel like a 'fantasy' scenario to you. Still, you don't permit your mind to wander off-course like that for long, nor do you allow your attention to slip away from your 'captor' for long. From the general feel of things, she's probably using a perfume meant to disorient you or render you more... active, not unlike what grass type mons would use. You need to pay attention to how hard you're breathing, which is difficult considering the fact that you're nervous as all heck.
You shudder and nod in response to Gissele's talk, though she is right. You're not escaping on your own. That's not the point of this.
"I suppose that will pass for now, but try to make yourself into a better conversationalist as the night drags on. Otherwise I may get bored of you." Gissele warns you as a door ahead of you opens up on its own to allow you through it, into a massive banquet hall. There is a grand table that is mostly unset, save for one end of it which has a grand throne seat and a smaller but still fancy chair sitting near one another. The smell of delicious food wafts over to you and you feel your stomach growl loudly. Gissele snaps her fan out and giggles at you from behind it, eyes narrowing in amusement.
"Sorry, ma'am. I'm just not sure how far I can go before I step out of bounds. It's not good to anger one's host." You say in response, which is the most you've said so far in all of this. Still, when you see the banquet hall... good grief. Hunger or no, you're absolutely baffled about how much goes into this place. This Gym must need every last coin it gets with how luxurious this place can be. Upkeep must be a nightmare. That aside, you're rather wary about the food, though you don't just go over and start eating. "Ma'am?" You say curiously, not quite sure what she's getting at while putting on a rather... well, you hope you look cute and confused.
She gestures to the end of the table with the chairs as you both walk towards it, "Eat, feel free. I did, after all, have this meal prepared for you as my guest." Gissele informs you as you walk closer to the delicious smelling food, which all looks incredibly rich. The vegetales and fruits all seem to be perfectly fresh as if they were just gathered from the fields. All of it looks so good, and it all smells like it suits your tastes just fine. You don't think there's a thing on the table that you wouldn't eat.
"Ah, thank you." You sit at the smaller seat and start to pick out which of what you want to eat, while bearing in mind that you ought to pace yourself just in case this is a trap. Maybe you're being paranoid, but you are her prisoner and making you more pliant wouldn't be against her end goal. ...You're really getting into this.
"Good, go ahead and indulge yourself." Gissele orders you as she takes to her throne and rests there, lounging in her seat as she watches you eat, eyes narrowed as a small, amused smile plays out across her face as she waits. In one hand she holds a glass of red liquid, gently swirling it when she's not taking a sip from it. Up close like this now, you can't help but feel your gaze constantly drawn to her face. Without make up on she was pretty, very much so admittedly. With it on her face is awe inspiriing, her full lips pursuing as as amber eyes draw you in deeper.
You can't afford to get sucked in here, so to speak, so you need to distract yourself somehow. Maybe making conversation would help distract you from Gissele? In the meantime, you're trying hard not to stare too much...
It's difficult not to stare though, with how she looks. Her attitude, appearance and posture all draw you in like a moth to the flame. Which, you suppose, is important for her to be doing given the role she's playing in this scenario. Gissele on her part simply continues to watch as you eat the meal that was prepared for you. The food is...exquisite, amazingly good. It's all awe inspiringly fresh and flavorful and each bite is a huge burst of flavor all of its own.
"Are you enjoying yourself?" Gissele questions, her voice soft and drawing your attention back to her when that's the last place you want to look. Those amber eyes of hers just keep focused on you, their gaze never shifting or deviating. It's as if you're the center of this amazingly beautiful woman's world.
Admittedly, part of you wants tp be the center of her world... but you have your own girls already. You need to focus on them and try to use your feelings for your girls to help counter-act some of this. It worked well enough with Ran, it should work at least partially here too. "Yes, ma'am, I am. Might I ask about where the food was grown? I have to admit that I've never eaten anything quite this good before."
