Koi no Michi – Kiwami 1

Koi no Michi Kiwami 1 – Kawazu Ryuusei

CV: Hatoman Gunsou (Kawahara Yoshihisa)

Thank you coralynfirenza for your commission!

Track 1

I think it’s been more than twenty years since we first met.

I was fifteen years old and spent all my time foolishly getting into fights. You were nothing more than a snotty-nosed little kid. The teachers were too scared to approach me, but you caught me and asked me to read you a book because it looked like I wasn’t doing anything.

You were raised among yakuza, so you weren’t scared of someone like me at all. I was impressed by that.

I don’t know what it was you liked about me, but every time I turned you down, you’d follow me around.

When I got hurt, you started sticking pink bandaids with odd patterns on me, so I couldn’t be careless about getting into fights.

I only thought of you as a kid, but at some point you ended up having a mature expression on your face and saying that you’d take over from your father. I think it was then that someone who had been like a younger sister to me began to look like a woman.

The support I received from your father meant I was able to graduate from university and today, I will be formally exchanging cups of wine. [1] That’s why I would like you to call me Kawazu too.

Things won’t be the same as before. We’re not kids anymore. If we don’t draw the line, we’ll be setting a bad example to the others. Isn’t that right, Miss?

You’re the boss’s daughter. I’m a subordinate who doesn’t have any family.

Even if we were to be in a relationship, there wouldn’t be any advantage for you.

That’s why I decided to keep my distance. But as long as someone never gives up, an opportunity will present itself.

I’m still the same person as before. I’ve just become a little better.

Will I be able to pursue you seriously now?

Koi no Michi, Kiwami. First Path, Kawazu Ryuusei.

I’m going to make sure you become mine, Miss.

[1] Sakazuki (exchanging cups of wine) is a ceremony in which the cups are exchanged between two people as a sign of loyalty. Sakazuki is often carried out at weddings.

Track 2

Boss! Are you alright, Boss?!


I heard that the boss collapsed… What happened?!

I’m sorry. After talking to you, I rushed here without really knowing what happened.

So you were saying that he collapsed…

He suddenly clutched his chest and collapsed?

Is he alright? Where is he now?

I see… The doctor made a house call. He’s safe for the time being then.

Miss… Is something the matter? Are you feeling unwell?

Hmm? My face is too close?

I’m sorry.

Anyway… Where are the other girls?

Ah… You let them go to bed earlier.

Well, I don’t think things would change much even if they were awake.

Jeez… You did everything all by yourself even though you’re not much older than them.

You must be tired from dealing with everything. I’ll stay with the boss, so you go to sleep.

You’re a stubborn person. Shall we check on the boss now then?

If there’s anything that worries you, then we can take care of him together.

If nothing’s wrong, then you can go to sleep.

How does that sound?

It’s so quiet.

Please excuse me.

He’s asleep. Has that put your mind at ease?

Then you can go to sleep, like you promised you would.


I’m sorry. Did I wake you?

“You came all the way here…”?

Of course I did!

If something happened to you, then I’d be there, no matter when or where it happened!

How are you feeling?

Just stay there!

You’ve just collapsed, so you need a proper rest!

We’ll get you checked out at the hospital tomorrow, just in case.

I won’t take no for an answer! Do you know how worried your daughter was?

I haven’t heard your voice sound this weak for a long time.

Hmm? The other men?

Right… I haven’t seen them around.

Miss! You’ve contacted them, haven’t you?

You haven’t?

I’m not criticising you… You must have been upset because this happened so suddenly.

I think that was the right thing to do, considering the situation.

But why was I the only one you called?

Ah… I’ll contact the other men, so you just stay there…

Hmm? You want to talk to the two of us about something?

I don’t know what it is, but you don’t have to talk about it right now…

My goodness… You’ll rest if I listen to what you have to say, won’t you?

I’ll hear what you have to say then.

Ah… Umm… I’m sorry, Boss. Could you say that again?

I couldn’t quite understand.

Ah… Well… Boss…

I can understand being worried about the future after collapsing, but I still can’t follow what you’re saying!

You want me to marry your daughter… Maybe the doctor should examine your head.

I’m sorry… But even if you’ve always wanted your daughter to be with me…

Even if we were in a relationship, I’m nothing more than an ordinary member of this organisation.

There was a time when we were like siblings, but that was a long time ago, before I even became a member of the organisation.

Anyway… I’ve heard what you had to say, so make sure you rest.

Come on. Let’s go, Miss.

Here’s some hot tea, Miss.

I thought you might calm down once your hands warmed up. You don’t have to drink it, but please accept it.

I’m sorry for keeping you here when I said you should get some rest.

I’m going to be straightforward with you. What do you think of me?

Your family has no sons. As the eldest daughter, you will eventually take over the organisation. Your future partner shouldn’t be someone without any family like me, but a man from a proper family. That’s how I feel.

Once you find an appropriate partner, even if my presence beside you doesn’t cause any misunderstanding, I won’t be able to face your father, who I owe a great debt to.

Above all, I don’t have the confidence to become a senior member.

That’s why I chose to be an ordinary member.

I felt kind of happy that I was the only person you contacted.

This might just be a convenient thought, but you wouldn’t unconsciously rely on someone you didn’t like, would you?

This might not be the right time to say this, but if you choose me, then I’m prepared to defend myself, no matter what anyone else might say.

I’m going to ask you again. Do you see me as a man?

It seems that things aren’t completely hopeless.

I’m relieved to hear that. I don’t mind having my name entered in the family register right away, but you need some time to get to know me, don’t you?

It doesn’t matter if we just see how things go at first.

During that time, I’m going to do all I can to pursue you. Make sure you’re ready, Miss.

Track 3

I’ll be going now then.

You might be feeling better, but the results aren’t ready yet.

I want you to relax, Boss.

Oh… Miss! Good morning.

Yes. We just got back from the hospital.

One of your sisters prepared the health insurance certificate, so we went there first thing in the morning. The test results aren’t ready yet, but they said it should be fine for him to stay at home. It’s the same as what the doctor said.

You were feeling quite tense last night, weren’t you?

Were you able to sleep alright?

That’s good.

You haven’t eaten yet, have you?

I haven’t either, so let’s go out to eat, if you don’t mind.

Your younger sisters are around at this time, so it shouldn’t be a problem if you go out for a while.

Is there anything you’d like to eat, Miss?

Ah… Why are you so tense?

Relax a little. I’m not going to make a move on you while I’m driving.

Well… I was pretty persistent, so I thought you’d forget last night ever happened, but you have taken notice of me.

Hey… I went and gave the boss my report.


He might have said something crazy again if he didn’t hear anything from me.

Don’t worry. I told him how things are.

I’m not planning on letting you go, but I’m still trying to win your heart. It seems that he knew I was confused and pushed me forward, saying that I should make up for the detour I had taken.

I know this is sudden, but would you like to go out this weekend?

It’ll be what you call a first date.

Everyone does this, but what about going to watch a movie?

This morning, the other girls said you didn’t have any plans.

They also said that you could go out because they’d look after your father.

You’re well aware of this too, aren’t you?

Gathering information is one of my talents.

It seems like it doesn’t take much to convince the other girls to help though.

Ah. We’re at the restaurant.

Just like I said last night, I’m going to do all I can to win your heart.

Make sure you’re ready for our date at the weekend.

As you’d expect from a popular movie, it was interesting.

Ah… Miss… Miss!

See… You’ll get carried away by the crowd if you don’t pay attention.

Come on. Hold onto my hand.

Right… We have a little more time after this, don’t we?

Hmm… Shall we have a quick drink before we eat?

Or would you like to go shopping at the mall in this street?


Ah… The park.

I’ve heard of it. It’s the one a short walk from here, isn’t it?

Watching a movie, then going for a walk. That’s a wholesome date plan not even high school students would choose these days.

Alright then. Let’s go.

It gets cold as soon as you stop walking, doesn’t it?

You must be cold too, right? I’ll shelter you from the wind.

It’s a place for families during the day, but once night falls, it’s a place for adults.

The people around us? There’s no need to worry about them.

See. Everyone else is only looking at their partner.

Hey, Miss… Please look at me.

Not yet… Just a little longer…

What do you think? I’m the only one you can see, aren’t I?

Your heart is beating really fast. I can even feel it from beneath your clothing.

Hey… Does it bother you when I touch you like this?

We should stop.

I’m sorry. I know where we are, but I couldn’t hold back once I touched you.

Miss… I’ve come this far because your father took care of me.

I don’t have anything. All I can offer the organisation is…

I mean… All I can give you is my feelings and my body.

No matter how strong my feelings are, I can’t express them.

So will you at least accept my body?

I’m sorry. I’m going to change our plans after this.

I’d rather have you than have a meal.

Track 4

What’s the matter?

It’s no good asking me to wait now.

A shower?

You can do that later, can’t you?

Even if you can’t move, I’ll carry you to the bathroom and make sure you’re clean all over.

Ah… Are you that bothered about it?

Alright. I’m only going to wait three minutes. Go on.

Hmm? It’s not long enough?

Alright, five minutes then.

We’re wasting time talking like this.

Come on. Let’s go together.

That way we’ll both get what we want.

We’re going to see everything either way. It doesn’t make any difference if that happens in the bathroom.

Don’t worry. I won’t go all the way, you see.

Well… Where should I wash you first?

Have you got any preference, Miss?

Don’t be so embarrassed. This isn’t our first time taking a bath together, is it?


We did it once, a long time ago.

The boss and my grandfather were there too.

I wasn’t thinking of anything indecent like this though.

We’ve changed quite a lot since then, haven’t we?

That skinny kid and flat-chested girl have grown into a man and a woman.

May I kiss your breasts?

I like your reaction.

It seems that you enjoy it when I tease your nipples.

Your body trembles when my tongue moves over this hard place.

I think you’re trying to hold your voice back, but it echoes when you let it out.

It feels even more erotic.

Come on… Let me hear even more of your voice.

Ah… That’s no good.

You wanted to wash yourself, didn’t you?

I’m sorry.

The strength of the water…

I suppose this is alright for now.

Sorry for the wait.

First of all, let’s clean my saliva off your breasts.

Hmm… What’s the matter? Isn’t the shower strong enough?

How strange. We’re not doing anything indecent, but it seems that you can’t stop crying out.

I haven’t touched you, so why are you feeling good?

Hmm? I’m doing it intentionally?

Yes, that’s right. I know you want to clean your body, so that’s why I’m intentionally aiming the shower there.

Especially on your hard nipples… We should clean those carefully.

Ah… I’m sorry. You want to wash yourself down there too.

Come on. Open your legs.

That’s what you wanted, isn’t it?

You can’t get out until you’re completely clean.

Ah… The most precious part of your body was already wet, even before I directed the shower at you.

See… You can hear it, can’t you? It’s not water. It’s the sound of something thicker coming out.

If this keeps coming out, then you’ll never be clean.

Should I use my fingers to stop it coming out while I’m washing you?

The inside of your body is amazing… It’s hot and wet…

My fingers are going to be soaked if I don’t hurry up and wash you.

There’s no point in resisting.

Even if you close your legs, I can open them as long as my fingers are here.

It’s a different matter if you actually want me to force them open though.

Then let me wash you.

We can go back to bed once you’re clean.

Come on. Just a little longer.

How does it feel having your clitoris stimulated with the shower?

I thought it might be too strong, but it looks like it’s not.

As soon as I aimed the shower at you, the inside of your body tightened around my fingers.

You can’t hear it because of the sound of the shower, but it’s even wetter than it was earlier.

Does it feel that good when I caress the inside of your body and your clitoris at the same time?

It’s impossible for you to hold back your voice when I caress you here.

It’s so cute…

Hmm? Me?

You don’t have to worry about me. If you touch me, I won’t be able to keep the promise I made at the beginning.

You see… If you turn me on too much, then I’m going to enter you.

I was only joking, but the inside of your body felt tight just now.

Are you about to come?

It’s alright if you come. I’m going to watch you as I make you come.

Don’t relax yet. We’re just getting started.

Miss… I’m sorry to do this when you’ve only just come, but I can’t take it any longer.

Let me enter you.

I’m sorry. It must hurt, but just a little longer…

Please touch me here.

Can you tell? What you saw in the bath earlier is completely inside of you.

It seems like you’re more used to kissing me now.

Your kisses were a little clumsy in the park earlier.

See… Our tongues are naturally entwining now.

You’ve improved a lot in a short time.

I was a little worried that I might end up being the one doing all the kissing.

It seems like that’s not the case.

I’ve put something much bigger than my fingers inside you, but you’re accepting it.

This is the place that makes you feel good, doesn’t it?

When I thrust past here, your body tightens around mine.

You shouldn’t have to squeeze that tightly. I’m not going to lose my energy just yet.

I’ll keep going until your body moulds perfectly to mine.

I wish I could say that… But I can’t let you stay out in this situation. I’ll make sure you get back before midnight.

Miss… The inside of your body is getting tighter.

Are you about to come again?

It’s alright. I was also holding myself back while we were in the bathroom. It should be fine now.

Miss… Now you’re really mine…

I love you, Miss…

I’m going to come too…

It feels so hard that you wouldn’t think I’d just come.

Miss… I’m just going to stay here like this.

I’m looking forward to seeing you get used to the shape of my body.

Track 5

My name is Kawazu. We spoke yesterday.

I was told that the item I requested is ready.

I’ve got the receipt.

This is it, isn’t it?

I’m sorry. I had planned to collect it last night, but I didn’t have time.

Thank you very much.

How pathetic. I don’t know why I’m so nervous about picking up a ring.

That took longer than I thought.

Where is she?


Hey, you! Who said you could flirt with my woman?

You look familiar. Aren’t you a member of Otorin?

Even if you’re a low-ranking member, your bosses can’t be teaching you anything if you don’t even recognise the daughter of a rival organisation’s boss.

Hey. You’ve got a good eye for women, but she’s mine.

Just for today, I’ll give you ten seconds. You won’t get a second chance.

Get lost right now.

Sorry, Miss. It was my fault for being late. Are you okay?

You look pretty happy, even though you got cornered by those guys.

Was one of those guys your type?

What? Calling someone “your woman” is just the kind of thing you say in that situation.

I’m sorry I was so arrogant.

You’re that happy about being called my woman?

Sorry I said something strange earlier.

Ah… I can’t stop apologising.

Cute? I am?

Don’t make fun of me! Jeez…

Come on! Stop laughing. Let’s get out of here.

I said I’m not cute!

Please look up, Boss.

You haven’t done anything wrong. It’s my fault for bringing up something like that.

Have you already told her?

I see. Thank you for your consideration.

Don’t worry about me. Just protect yourself.

Please excuse me.


You were listening…

Boss. May I tell her about the conversation we just had?

I want the two of us to talk about the future.

Yes. I’m sorry for my selfish request.

Miss… I’m going to tell you everything.

May I go to your room now?

It’s only natural this would happen, but it has a different atmosphere from before.

You used to have all your favourite toys here…

This ring… It brings back memories.

Yes, I remember it. It’s a toy ring from the stall where I used to work part time before I was formally involved with the organisation.

You said you’d pay for the ring, but because you bought some snacks, your allowance wasn’t enough. In the end, I was the one who paid for it.

You knew how much you’d eat, but you hadn’t accounted for the yakisoba you bought me.

Of course I remember! I remember everything that you’ve done for me.

They’re all precious memories to me.

You’ve kept it all this time…

There’s talk of an arranged marriage for you.

It was proposed by a member of Sakai. The prospective marriage partner is a relative of that man.

That man isn’t the only one pushing for it to go ahead. Several of the leaders are too.

The boss can’t ignore it either.

In public, he says that your partner, who will be responsible for the organisation, should be a man who has that kind of support from others. To put it simply, he is probably unhappy that I’ve suddenly started dating you.

The boss was on bad terms with my grandpa who passed away. If he dislikes my grandfather, he dislikes me too.

Miss… Will you consider that proposal?

Don’t misunderstand! I’ve got no intention of giving up.

Didn’t I tell you? You’re my woman.

I can’t let go of you now, even if you want me to.

I’ll look for a way to get the proposal withdrawn without causing trouble for the boss.

It might take some time, but I want you to believe in me and wait.

I’ll get the boss to give me his answer tomorrow.

Saying yes will mean breaking things off with me. That’s why I’m going to make love to you to make up for the time we’ll be apart.

Track 6

Hmm. Is that you, Aki?

How are things going?

I see…

No, you don’t have to make contact yet.

Keep following them so that you can move as soon as I contact you.

I’m sorry for making you do a personal errand. I’ll reward you generously this time.

Ah… You can make a list of what you want. I’ll contact you again later.

Well… Now I’m ready for when the time comes.

Sorry I kept you waiting, Miss.

It’s me, Kawazu. Please excuse me.

You’re the man from Sakai… I haven’t seen you for a while.

I’m sorry to interrupt this marriage meeting.

I just heard something that concerned me. I knew it wouldn’t be polite of me, but I had to come here and talk.

I was impressed that you felt she needed a good match for the sake of the organisation’s future and I did my best to help.

Your relative already has another woman, doesn’t he?

They are living together, but she is not in his family register.

He acted like the matter had been properly dealt with, but not only are they still together, that woman is having his child!

I shouldn’t need to say this, but it’s unthinkable for the boss’s daughter to be partnered with a man who already has another woman!

You understand that well enough, don’t you?

I heard that you and the other leaders considered him to be the most suitable candidate. Your reputation will be ruined if the engagement is broken off because that man already has another woman. So…

Why don’t we say that I suddenly came in and took her away before things could be completed?

Then if you say that you were moved by my determination, this could end without causing any trouble for anyone. Isn’t it much better than causing embarrassment for your relatives?

Please excuse me, Miss! I’ll be taking you away now!

I suppose I put a little too much effort into my acting.

Boss! Let me apologise for this disturbance again. I’ll excuse myself now.

Let’s go, Miss.

Sorry I kept you waiting. If all I had wanted to do was have the proposal of marriage withdrawn, I could have made my move sooner. But I wanted your father to accept our relationship in order to prevent any future marriage proposals.

Still… Even though I was the one trying to have it cancelled, it did make me angry. I should have thrown a punch at that guy. It’s a good thing the boss was not fully prepared. If that man had been a completely honest person, then I would’ve had no choice but to accept it.


That’s right. I was thinking about that when I slept with you on the last day that we saw each other.

Does that bother you?

I lost all my self-control. You’ve completely surprised me. I wondered if I was the type of person to get so attached to someone else.

Even if it does bother you or you’ve become tired of me, it’s too late. I already belong completely to you.

I love you, Miss. You belong to me alone.

Track 7

Smart clothes really are inconvenient at times like this!

They’re too complicated! Jeez!

Don’t laugh!

Ah… I’m sorry. I got too relaxed and couldn’t help speaking casually, like I always used to.


Although your father has accepted our relationship, that’s too much…

I understand. Only when we’re alone then.

Even if it doesn’t bother you, it concerns me!

Get that into your head, you damn kid!

You dummy. I couldn’t do things like this if I really thought you were a kid.

Your body is quite used to mine now, but it’s been a while.

How does it feel when I put my fingers inside?

It doesn’t seem to be any different.

How about here?

Hey… It got so tense when all I did was lick it a little.

There’s something flowing out from it.

Did you touch yourself down here during the time we spent apart?

Hmm? You’re lying.

How many times do you think we slept together before we got separated?

Your body got this wet from just thinking about me.

If you didn’t do anything, that’d mean you’d forgotten about me.

You’re not that cruel, are you? Miss…

You should have just been honest from the start. It’s nothing to be embarrassed about.

I love you. That’s why I get hard down here.

You love me. That’s why you get wet down here.

It’s only natural, isn’t it?

I’ve pleasured myself plenty of times. I didn’t think I’d be doing that at my age.

Your body has reactions. You don’t have a choice about dealing with them, do you?

I’m going to satisfy you by thrusting deep inside you.

I can finally do the things I’ve imagined doing.

Hey… It’s alright, isn’t it?

I’m going to enter you.

I’m completely inside now.


I’m not going to pull out until I’ve become satisfied enough to make up for the time I endured.

I’ll make love to you until you can no longer bear it.

Can you tell that I’m as deep inside you as I can get?

Isn’t this what you wanted?

Poor you… You’re even being defiled by me right down here.

You’ll never be separated from my body.

Hmm? My body certainly isn’t the only thing.

My heart… My life… Everything that belongs to me, from now on…

It’s all yours.

It seems like you just came. Your suddenly body felt tight and I thought I might get carried away.

You feel good for a long time when you come like that.

At the same time, I’m thrusting against the place that makes you feel good…

Your voice sounds good. Let me hear even more of that cute voice.

Hey… I’m about to come too.

Is it alright if I come inside you?

Your body suddenly felt tighter. I’m going to take that as a yes.

Miss… Please accept me deep inside you.

I’m going to come…

It’s still coming out.

Miss… I ended up doing things in the wrong order…

There’s a ring in here though. I just didn’t get to give it to you because of the confusion over the arranged marriage.

I’ve actually had it ready for a long time now.

It should be a perfect fit for your left ring finger.

You’ll accept it, won’t you? Miss…

Track 8

Umm… Well…

Although you have acknowledged our relationship, I’m sorry that I allowed a woman of marriageable age to stay out without asking permission.

I was going to bring her back last night… But…

I’ll make sure nothing like this happens again.

So… I told you that I was trying to win her over, but now I’ve formally asked her to marry me. Her answer was… As you can see from her left hand, she accepted.

There’s a request I’d like to make.

I’m still an inexperienced member of the yakuza, but I’m confident enough that I won’t lose to anyone else when it comes to my feelings for her. I’m an idiot who wouldn’t have had the courage to make a move if it wasn’t for you giving me a reason, but I’m prepared to love and support her for the rest of my life, as well as helping her protect the organisation.

So… Please let her be mine!

We’re finally free. I didn’t think we’d end up having a party.

Hmm? It’s alright.

They made me drink a lot, but I’m not that drunk.

What about you, are you okay?

Come here instead of sitting over there.

It’s a good thing the boss’s test results came back okay.

Your middle sister was annoyed and said not to make a fuss, but I’m thankful for it.

If it wasn’t for this, I would have kept my distance from you.

I don’t know why I thought I could give up when you’re so dear to me.

I can’t even remember how I lived without you.

I’m not exaggerating! I really do feel that way.

I might not look like it, but I’m a sincere person.

You’re the woman I’ve been thinking about for half of my life and now you’re finally mine.

No matter what happens from now on, I’m never going to leave you again.

You look as if you’re tired of hearing me say that.

I’m always serious whenever I say it.

You might get tired of hearing it, but I want you to listen every time.

I’m going to improve myself even further so that I won’t be ashamed to stand beside you as a member of the yakuza. I want you to stay by my side and watch me.

I love you, Miss. Let’s make sure that we’re happy together.
