Why Ignorant Harems Are Dangerous - Chapter 4
Why Ignorant Harems Are Dangerous chapter 4
4 – #01. Unexpected meeting (3)
Assailant and victim.
Could there be a better description of our relationship?
They lived well until I fell into this world. It was none other than me who destroyed each person’s circumstances and lives, their individual lives, and even took away their individuality.
Any woman who faces me becomes my blind captive.
A curse that has no reason and no way to resist.
No matter how great a woman was, she couldn’t escape this ability. If she was strong, she was powerful, but in the sense that she manipulated other people’s thoughts and emotions to make a mess, it was fundamentally a trashy ability.
‘You don’t look at me anymore.’
‘I guess so. Now there are a lot of great people around you, and there are many people who are prettier than me.’
Today, I have nightmares.
The irreversible dream of that night.
‘I love you. I loved you. To the extent that I can’t gloss over it in the past tense.’
Always a similar dream.
Still, more than five years had passed, but in my dream, I projected the scene as vividly as if I had seen it yesterday.
Maybe my time stopped there.
Worst trauma of my life.
You are forced to face what you do not want to face.
And whenever that happens, I realize.
Original sin that can never be avoided. It all started with the only ability given to me when I came over to the fantasy world.

I raised my head with a carefree view.
I felt a small hand groping my body. In the midst of the sunlight dazzling my eyes, I gently reached out my hand with a pure white figure that was vaguely caught in my gaze.
“I’m sorry. It’s just that I heard a groan from inside…….”
“Don’t apologize. Because I am grateful.”
This child still had a hard time with me even after two years of living together, as if the apple was in his mouth.
In a sense, that kind of reaction wasn’t bad, but wouldn’t it be uncomfortable for the girl to have a hard time with this side all the time?
“Because it’s okay. Did I tell you? This house is our home.”
There is no need to apologize for just entering my room.
Having said that, the girl still lowered her head.
“I’m sorry… ….”
“…… Are not you hungry? Shall we have breakfast first?”
I got myself up from the bed, trying to wake her up.
At this, the girl got up as well, but in the meantime, while groping the floor with her cane, I followed her step by step, following my footsteps.
A pure white bandage covering the girl’s eyes.
From the first time she saw her, she was a blind child, and besides, she was extremely reluctant to show those eyes to anyone. .
I wondered if she would be frustrated, but since this child wanted it, I couldn’t say anything. In the end, we continued our rather strange cohabitation life, not touching each other as much as possible.
“There was leftover soup from yesterday, is that okay?”
“Yes, it’s okay.”
When will she be able to hear that she is good for this child.
Feeling bitter, I went into her kitchen, and the girl sat down on a chair at her table and waited. A beam of sunlight came through her window and illuminated her interior.
Since I had been following the peddler the other day, I had managed to save up some money, so I had no intention of leaving the house for the time being.
After all, I can’t leave a child with impaired eyesight alone.
She was a rather impulsive girl, but still she wanted to take responsibility for this girl more than once she was in charge. And I enjoyed talking to the girl because she is, above all, a woman who is beyond my abilities.
“Would you like to have a meal and dip your toes in the stream today?”
“Yes? Are you okay?”
“I have no work for the time being.”
Of course, she managed to get around the yard by herself with her cane, but she couldn’t go any further, so she often went out with the girl.
Even that was difficult when I was busy, but I haven’t had anything urgent lately.
“…… If it’s because of me….”
“Isn’t it? Are you okay.”
She continued her meal while talking about it.
Time passed casually.
An ordinary day.
Compared to the time I was living in modern times and the time I was living in the imperial palace, my life lacked a lot, but there is a saying that when you get used to it, that place is your hometown.
Perhaps it was because I had already adapted to this life, I didn’t feel much discomfort.
Just like that, the day was about to begin as usual when a knock came from outside.
“Yes, I am leaving.”
People who usually visit at this time must have people from nearby villages, and if not, the Guild sometimes sent people when they needed manpower.
First of all, I got up and opened the door to the front door, and the first thing I noticed was purple hair that was shining in the sunlight.
“It’s too late to open the door.”
“…… Have you come to a place where I can’t come? What’s wrong with your voice?”
It’s not a place I can’t come back to, but honestly, I never thought I’d visit again after that.
After all, the relationship between me and her and the girls won’t be very pleasant. And if she had been freed from my powers, I could have guessed how she would accept me.
“Eating? It must be bad timing.”
“That’s fine… ….”
Why did you come?
This simple question lingered in my mouth.
If I say it like that, I’m afraid I’ll look harsh. So while she hesitated to get her words out, she excused herself and went inside and looked at her girl for a moment.
“Are you out of money?”
“It’s not like that.”
“Anyway, it seems too cramped to live with a young man and a girl like that. If you live like this because you don’t have enough money, I might recognize you.”
For a moment, I was taken aback by the sudden words.
But she had to say something she couldn’t get out.
“The last time I came, I couldn’t say anything because I was in a bad condition.”
To be honest, I thought Mea would hate me.
To them, am I not the man who forcibly ruled them with strange magic? If I were one of them, I’d be willing to stick a knife through the man’s throat as soon as it came loose.
“Hello? I couldn’t even say hello properly last time.”
Meanwhile, Mea went up to her girl and sat down next to her.
“Did we talk for a while? Sorry for the sudden visit back then. But, by any chance, what is your name?”
The girl stopped talking for a moment, perhaps taken aback by Mea’s question.
Somehow, she tends to be difficult with people, so when she wondered if it would be better to stop her at this point, the girl answered Mea in a small voice.
“My name is Lenny.”
“Lenny? It’s a pretty unique name.”
“…… Sin, I’m sorry.”
“Huh? No, that’s not something I’m sorry for…….”
Listening to the conversation between the two for a while, I thought about it.
Why did Meah come to see me?
If the curse called fascination is lifted, but still looking for me, why? I could understand if it was to get revenge on me, but she herself said she had no intention of doing so.
Then why did she come to me?
I couldn’t understand that, so I thought about it for a while.
“Then Lenny. I’m sorry, but can I borrow that brother?”
“…… Mister, what?”
The girl raised her head slightly anxiously, but she couldn’t confirm my location, so she turned her head around and then she gently lowered her head.
“Because I’m not in a position to say anything.”
“Really? Shall we talk for a while then?”
Mea got up from her seat and thought she was coming towards me, but she immediately stared at my face wearing her mask and tilted her head slightly.
“By the way, is it enough to call you Mister? I don’t think so.”
“Let’s go out and talk.”
Lenny was difficult with her others.
She is still a difficult child even for me. She must have been uncomfortable with someone she had never seen before, so she opened the door and led them outside.
The weather was quite sunny.
The warm sunlight gave the impression that it was just spring, and since the cabin itself was built near a forest, I could feel the bitter smell of vegetation coming from the mountain.
“It is a quiet place.”
She looked around for a moment and stretched her body.
Her purple hair flutters in sync with her movements. Her long, outstretched arms were stretched out and her sweet scent gently tickled my nose.
“What are you talking about?”
“He has a quick temper. You don’t want to be with me like that?”
“…… That’s not it.”
Actually, her heart was heavy, but more than that, she was worried about her mental part.
It was in her heart that she could understand the memory of her being forced to fall in love with a person she had no heart for, having s*x with her, clinging to her and fawning over her.
At least she was the kind of person who couldn’t understand herself like Mea before she fell under my power.
“Do you think I came here because I liked you?”
“…… That would not be it.”
She immediately bowed her head at those words.
Why was it like that then?
Since everyone said they loved me, I wondered if I liked it, and I just enjoyed what was given to me for no reason.
Would it be an excuse to say that I was intoxicated by something?
Should I say I was young at the time? But that was also what I had done, and everything that followed as a result was a tragedy due to my foolishness.
“Tsk, don’t slump over that.”
She frowned between her brows and held me by the shoulders with an expression of enduring something.
“At that time, when you made me yours, you were so confident, but now why? Did you regret it that much? To the point where you don’t even want to see me face to face?”
“It’s not that I hate facing you.”
A shiver came from her gripped shoulders.
This is Mea’s hand shaking.
She looked like she was putting on a lot of frown and holding back something, but I certainly understood her expression.
“But I do regret it.”
“…… Then why did you do something you’ll regret?”
She frowns as she lets go of her hand.
I was disgusted with myself for not being able to answer that.
“Anyway, that was the reason I found you.”
Perhaps she had found some stability, she met my eyes with a calm expression.
Is it enough to make you hate just touching your body?
I knew it, but it was the first person I met since I ran away, so it touched me even more. Still, is it strange that he feels that it’s better to come back to his senses and despise him?
“There is only one point. Watching you…… It’s not my intention, but to protect it.”
“To protect? Me?”
I can understand the former, but why the latter?
My expression slightly blurred at the words I couldn’t understand, but she let out a thick sigh as she looked at me like that.
“Think about why you are hiding here. Do you think there are no girls looking for you? There may be people who wake up like me, but cancer that still loves you… There are women too.”
“I know that, but… ….”
“Besides, your power doesn’t have any particular risk, and depending on how you use it, everything can be distorted if you go wrong.”

Did you say the power to have half the world?
I closed my eyes remembering what someone had said.
Certainly, it was dangerous power. I realized that someday it would be solved because of Mea’s case, but even so, the power to make me fall in love with me unconditionally just because my gender is female.
“Then do you intend to be around me?”
“Muh, what. Can’t you help it? Even if a crazy woman finds you, it’ll be annoying, and if someone abuses that ability, it’ll be even more troublesome.”
She raised her head softly at Mea’s words.
“Are you okay with that?”
“I’m asking if it’s okay to stay with me.”
So, I frowned again.
It seemed like he didn’t like it, but it felt like he was enduring something.
She felt a little strange about those words.
I don’t know why she felt that way, but it felt like something was out of place.
