You cringe as she brings up that point. "I know. I take that kind of thing seriously too. The Prismrivers sympathized with Kogasa, so there's less of a problem there, and I got separated from them when I first came to this mansion. Convincing Rumia to come with me might have made her mad, true, but without that darkness mon I would have died at least... twice? Three times? I hate to put it like this, but I'd rather cause her a little upside like that rather than die and make her grieve. At least I can try to fix this." Though the more you think about it the more you start to wonder if you just didn't have much in the way of options at those points. "The tengu mon were a real surprise, but I don't have them officially yet. Their trainer basically kicked them out after I helped them out with their problem, and I don't want to just up and abandon them too."
She pushes one point and makes you moan out in a voice that she seems to find cute, judging by her amused chuckle in response to it, "Well, if you want my advice on it, maybe you should sit down with them and talk about the situation now that you're not surrounded by the restless, vengeful dead and ask them their opinions on it. You'll probably find that they're willing to defer to you, but just asking them will make them feel a lot better about it. It's when you're completely inconsiderate of them and their opinions that most of them can become upset and unruly."
Good grief, now she's aiming to make you make cute noises? And with how she's straddling you... "That's pretty high on my list of things to do. I originally meant to handle that during that week-long session I set aside for dealing with their libido, but you can probably guess how often I actually had a chance to talk that didn't involve me moaning or making some other noise they think is cute. At least Kogasa wanted to actually spend some time bonding."
"Hmmm, is that so? The slime wanted to spend time bonding with you rather than just jumping right into the smutty stuff?" Samantha asks, pressing on a certain point as she seems to press on that topic for some reason. Why would she focus on that though.."
"She really wanted to get to know me for me, and I reciprocated. I didn't think anything of it at the time, though she is notable for having a queen-level intelligence despite being a first-stage slime." She's well and truly made you into a puddle now, as you can't do anything other than squeak or moan when she soothes out a particularly bad knot that still remains.
Her fingers move back along your neck and towards your back again as she keeps on working on you. You do note she lets out a quiet sigh though, one that could mean any number of things, "I see. Well, that's interesting for any number of reasons."
"She's definitely odd, but in a good way." You say in response, continuing to make the odd pleased sound while feeling like she's slowly herding you to another conclusion you really don't want to hear yourself come to.
"She certainly sounds like it. But remember what they say about aberrant behavior. It's a warning sign, even if it turns out to mean nothing." Samantha prompts as she pushes a point on your back and makes you arch a bit in pleasure as she presses that spot a bit harder. It feels so good...!
"...Her, or my Prismrivers?" You ask, feeling yourself almost floating as she continues to work you over. "With the way Kogasa acts, she's..." You trail off for a moment before speaking again, a bit more quietly. "Almost more like my first than Lyrica is."
"You should be careful about saying that. It'd be like slapping her in the face if she heard you." Samantha warns, "Especially since it sounds like that position's important to her. Also, this is just my opinion but don't buy into that whole 'First' illusion too much. Yeah, there's never a relationship quite like your first, but that doesn't mean it's gonna be your best relationship. The First is special because the both of you are treading new water together and discovering something you never experienced before in each other, not because she's your waifu."
"I don't want to say that to her either. Lyrica's precious to me, and I do trust her." You feel tears well up in your eyes, but don't start crying about it. "If I broke her heart like that, mine would be broken just as much."
"I'm not saying you would." Samantha pulls you into a hug again, her warm and strong body soothing your emotional hurt and concerns, "I'm just warning you so you remember to be careful what you say. Because even if that's not what you're trying to say to her, it sounds like she's the sorta person who can take things the wrong way."
"Mmm. She can. Definitely going to have to apologize to her though." You say, stating the obvious once again as you accept her warmth and closeness. "I don't think I can just straight-up ask my Prismrivers what I am to them, or at least not bluntly."
"I would recommend you develop a sense of subtle tact, and poke around to find your answer. Or you could try to find it out from them in the afterglow." She adds on as a bit of helpful advice, "Though that might only work for guys so I wouldn't count on it."
You chuckle for the first time since Samantha started working on your body, and feel a bit lighter overall. "Yeah, tact is not one of my strong suits. It's almost gotten me in trouble more than once."
"Oh? Is that something you want to talk about too?" Samantha asks as she shifts back up and rubs soothing, calming circles on your back and shoulder as she encourages you to do what you wish.
"Well, aside from that Yuyuko almost doing terrible things to me twice, I managed to upset Slime Kogasa when I first met her just asking about her and Lyrica flat-out cried when I asked about why she was alone."
"...You know, if you find my stuff I'm pretty sure I had a book on tact. You might want to read it." Samantha suggests to you helpfully as she pushes down on another point on your back, hands seemingly floating along and pressing at random and making you feel amazing each time.
"I actually did find it while I was having to repel your insane with pain wraith form the first time. Recharged your PAD using mine to boot to get some of the logs off it. I also rummaged through it for anything useful. Normally I'd ask or be more apologetic, but you weren't really in a position to use any of that stuff." You say in response, noting that it might not hurt to make another pass through the bag while you're at it. "...Hey, I know it's changing the subject, but do you have any loved ones you want to pass a message off to?"
"...Yeah, you really need to read that book on tact." Samantha's hands stop on your back as she listens to you, "Make it a priority. As for that other thing, no. Nobody I care to say anything to." She pushes another spot on your back suddenly, making you let out a keening sound as you feel something pop and your body relax again.
"Figured I'd ask, at least. Considering I went through your stuff it's the least I could offer." Another person telling you you lack tact. This is becoming a recurring theme, much like being referred to as being too soft, you think.
"Don't worry about it, I'm not easy to offend but some people are." Samantha responds as you feel her start to roll pressure up and down your back, straightening it out and making your whole body move with the motion, "Also learning how to gently broach a subject is gonna be important to you if you want to fix things up and keep them fixed with anyone you have a problem with, because a lot of people don't respond well to bluntly being told there's something wrong with them."
"Yeah. Trying to keep that in mind is going to be hard for a while. Being blunt can cut right to the heart of the matter, but I guess it can hurt too." After all, you did make Lyrica cry when you first met her by asking why she was alone in such a blunt and direct manner, and you've almost set Kogasa off twice so far, you think.
"An important skill is learning when to be blunt and when to be considerate. You'll pick it up eventually, don't worry." Samantha soothes you as you feel those dexterous fingers touch another few points as she pushes and prods at your back to hit another few spots that send shocks of pleasure through you.
You're blushing and moaning as she continues to poke at those spots, though you can't do much more than that at this point. "You're really good at this..." You sigh as she hits yet another spot well again, having already given up to her technique.
"That's because I've had plenty of practice, and know all about pleasure spots." Samantha sounds a touch smug about that as your brain slowly connects a few dots and helps you realize why certain parts of your feel certain ways and your limbs feel like gelatin molds.
You try to look back at Samantha, who's still straddling you while working you over bit by bit... "You know about those too?" You ask, noting that you're blushing quite hard and are quite wide-eyed as you realize that her massage may not have had such innocent intent behind it.
"Yep! Now, mind you they're all known as 'relaxation points' and what you get out of them is based off of how you use them." She explains, lecturing you on the finer points of a subject you know yourself, "Which means your not-so-little reaction and how much your enjoying this in less than innocent ways is because you find an older girl massaging you to be sexy."
"Which is a perfectly reasonable thing to like, really. I mean, I'd fuck me." Samantha admits as you feel her thumbs roll over a particularly sensitive spot and make your toes curl up.
"Well yeah, you are hot..." You say, feeling a touch embarrassed among other things as you realize just how thoroughly she's worked you over just by playing the role of big sister. ...Dear Shinki, you hope that RSMYuyuko wasn't right about you. This is going to make facing Yume rather embarrassing later on.
"Exactly! Absolutely nothing wrong about being turned on by my defined limbs, firm abs and toned thighs." Samantha agrees as she pegs a few of the points you've admittedly noticed about her, "Now, I'm gonna be the one switching tracks this time and teaching you a very valuable lesson. Be honest with me...if I was trying to take advantage of you, how fucked would you be now?"
"Very." You reply simply, noting that you literally couldn't get her off you if you tried, and that's assuming you wanted to get away from her.
"Good on you for being honest! Lots of guys have to bluster and then I'd have to step on you and you wouldn't like that...or, maybe you would." She considers that aside before continuing on with her lesson, "Now, what do you think I'm trying to teach here?"
"Not to underestimate human women?" You ask, noting that if there's any lesson to teach here, that'd be among the more obvious ones she could possibly hit you with. Metaphorically.
"That's a big part of it! It's also so you don't assume that a human woman is somehow less 'capable' than a monster in certain ways. Something you've got to remember is that if a lady's got an itch she wants scratched, she's got to compete with a bunch of super powered sex machine's to get a guys attention. There's lots of different ways to go about it, but some of them...well they'll do what I did to you, except with drugs or hit the pressure points with the express purpose of flooding your mind with lust or beating up your mons and kidnapping you for their sex dungeon. One of those got busted up a whiles back before I ended up, you know, dead. Plus, remember, it's technically not illegal to make a guy so emotionally and psychologically dependent on you that the thought of leaving you causes them pain."
...sweet shinki how horrifying.
"Yeah, I remember hearing about some crazy Gym Leader who had all kinds of substantiated rumors floating around about her, but nothing ever seemed to happen to her. I think she ran some kind of Dominatrix Variant Gym or something, but that might have just been an exaggeration to make the story better." Samantha admits as you find yourself being lectured on how apparently there are female touhoumon trainers and gym leaders who keep S&M Rape Dungeons.
I mean, you've heard of SDM Rape Dungeons, but this?
"That's..." You can't help but trail off because it sounds so utterly absurd. Then again, you know the laws of the land reasonably well, at least so you can know when to bend or break them as needed and not get in too much trouble for it, and men are both protected and unprotected in some convoluted ways.
"Really somethin', isn't it? I mean, it's not surprising that it happens in the New continent, but it's something that shows up in other parts of the world too. With guys being such a highly contested resource though, I guess it's a bit of a given that someone would try to force the matter." Samantha's hands roam back up to your shoulders and caress them, soothing out the irritation there that came back.
"It is. Touhoumon and human women are both capable of... well, I apologize if it seems clinical to say it like this but they're both capable of mating with human men, and men are kind of in the minority if you count the total number of both races." You start to think on it a bit more and recall a few more little tidbits that made this scenario make more sense than it did before. "Then you narrow it down to youthful males who aren't just forty year olds looking to have kids but are in fact capable of falling in love and have desirable traits beyond that..."
"I'm not just Touhoumon bait, am I?" You ask, feeling that you simultaneously want and don't want the answer to that.
"Yeah, you're pretty desirable to more than a few categories of human women kid. Here's some advice from me: Don't leave your drink unattended." She tells you, ruffling your hair soothingly.
"You're worse off than some because you're still physically small and slight in comparison to other guys, which both makes you look more vulnerable and exploitable and makes you actually more vulnerable and exploitable." Samantha adds on as she keeps up that nice hair ruffling, nails digging in at a few spots and sending tingling, white hot sparks of pleasure that makes you relax, "Also you've got a cute voice."
You demonstrate that cute voice once more as she ruffles your hair. "T-thanks..." You know full well that stammering like that just proves her point across the board, but you can't help it anymore. "Hm... 'Ain't no rest for the wicked', is there?"
"There's no rest for anyone, but yeah pretty much." Samantha responds with the answer you expected, "The wicked are gonna wick and all that. All you can do is make sure you're aware of the threat. If you keep what I told you in mind you're safe ninety-nine percent of the time."
"I will, and thank you. I know there's not much reason for you to go out of your way like this." You're still relaxing with an admittedly hot lady on top of you, rubbing her hands all over you to teach you a surprisingly valuable lesson about how you're not just Touhoumon bait. Considering how nice she is, that's really not a bad thing.
"Eh, there's plenty of reasons. Trainer's got to watch out for each other you know? I know we've got that whole 'battle maniac' image thing going on, but when you're in the real wilds you'll find that there's a difference between a real trainer and the townies and routers." Samantha responds, "Besides, you freed my soul from eternal torment and helped get me set up to get my personal revenge on that bitch of a Yuyuko. That's gotta be worth at least a bit of advice."
"Then we'll call it even?" When she puts it that way, yeah, it does sound like you went so far beyond the call of duty that it borders on insanity at some points. "Though I wish I could have gotten to travel with you a bit. You seem like a genuinely nice and interesting person, with just the right amount of fire in her."
"Psh, Course you wanted to travel with me." Samantha responds, her tone perfectly confident, "Everyone wants to travel with me. But yeah, that'd have been nice. I could have shown you all of the ropes, and yes I am aware of that being a double entendre and know exactly what your perverted little boy mind took it to." She leans on you, putting a bit of weight there as she pins you down unnecessarily, since you can't even move anyway, "I'd have done that too, if you were into that sort of thing. I don't mind playing up the top."
"And you could have talked to my Prismrivers about various knots and techniques. Yume taught them at least some of what she knows back when they got trained under her a bit." You actively roll your eyes at the idea, though you're still blushing. "Plus I actually don't mind bondage play, though I'm also pretty snuggly in bed."
"That whole bondage thing was a joke because of how I was gonna 'show you the ropes', kid." Samantha sounds a bit amused as she informs of you that bit of pertinent information, "Not every time someone makes a sex joke or a lewd reference means they necessarily want to do it with you. Sides, Bondage isn't my thing too much either."
She chuckles throatily before continuing, "I like the feeling of them struggling too much for that."
"Sometimes I can't tell if I'm serious or running with it to joke back." You reply honestly as you note what she just said. "...Huh?" That blush somehow intensifies.
"That was another joke kid, relax..." She goes back to rubbing your shoulders soothingly while giving you important life lessons as a trainer, "I mean, it's also true, but I don't think you'd mind since you're kind of an obvious bottom anyway with how comfortable you are under a woman who's riding you."
"Anyway, what was I gonna tell you next...?" She muses to herself, trying to remember her lesson plan for you. Which just makes you think of her wearing some kind of sexy teacher outfit. You guess she DOES have the legs for those kinds of stockings and boots.
"...Oh right, I was going to get to the hands on portion of the lesson." She snaps her fingers as she remembers before reaching down and pressing her thumbs against either of your temples, making you feel nothing in particular save for a pleasant tingle that spreads through your nerves, "I mean that in the literal sense, since I'm hoping to break that multi-year dry spell that comes from being dead before I pass on and all that, and you're a cute boy who could use some lessons in how to resist certain kinds of tricks." YAR! BELOW THIS POINT THAR BE NAUGHTY! >>/at/34254 YAR! ABOVE THIS POINT THAR BE NAUGHTY!
Goodness, I'm sorry this took so long to get done everyone. Between all sorts of problems popping up that kept us from working together as long and often as we usually do and the length of this piece, this ended up being quite a wait.
