Please read introduction first.
After the dinner she asked Peter to be alone with her in a room. Peter agreed and the two were alone in a room in the building to be isolated from other party attendees. It was a small guest room.
"What is going on, Masako?" Peter asked her. He wondered why she took him to the room and her face became so serious, not seemed very pleasant.
"Peter, if you are trying to come on to me, please try not have me with that gentleman."
"What? Who is "gentleman" you are talking about?"
Peter reacted surprisingly.
"Captain Rohm? I do not understand."
"I know you do. You have relationship with him. You love him and he loves you. I am certain because I have similar experience." Masako said with confidence.
Peter kept silence for a while, and then changed his attitude.
"You have similar experience. You mean, back in Japan?" asked Peter.
"Yes, with my ex-husband. He had relationship with his sworn brother" said Masako recalling her bitter memory.
"Sworn brother? having relationship, what kind?" Peter was excited to hear her story.
Masako started to read her memory.
Last year Masako got married to an imperial navy's officer, Yoshio Togo. Although it was arranged marriage by the couple's parents, she was very happy because Yoshio was very handsome gentle, and intelligent man. He was from noble family. Masako never had any problem sharing life with him. But one thing changed her life.
It was a hot summer day. When she came home alone, expecting no one was at home because she heard her husband went out for days on duty and she told him that she would visit her parents house. Her housemaids got holidays because no one stayed home. She actually came back to her house earlier than scheduled.
She went to the bed room to take a nap being tired of hot and humid weather. As she approached the bedroom where she and Yoshio shared,
she heard the voice of two men. One is her husband and the other is one she knew very well and already met. It was Yoshio's sworn brother, Takeshi. Yoshio once introduced him to her as his most trusted subordinate. The two men went to the same naval school. Yoshio was senior and Takeshi was freshman at the time they first met at the school. Even after school, they were in the same division unit often working together.
She saw the two men on the bed where she and Yoshio daily slept on and made love through narrow gap between a door and wall. They never knew she was peeping. The two men were naked. She saw Yoshio's back and ass. Yoshio was behind Takeshi. They growled. Yoshio was moving his lower body back and forth. On that day two men were making love on the bed instead of a man and a woman.
"You should be shocked to know that" said Peter.
"No, that was not shocking at all. It wasn't surprise at all to me. I knew the two had that sort of relationship. I could easily guess. That is what Japanese men always do. Having sexual relationship between sworn brothers, especially among military men, actually that is samurai men's tradition."
"Yeah, that is how they get bonds. That is why they are strong. I respect that tradition. I know my father and my brother had such relationship with other men. Japanese men are usually bi-sexual in that sense. Having a wife to succeed his family line but at the same time enjoying relationship with his sworn brothers. Very common."
"Big surprise to me, Here in Deutcheland, it is considered sin and even crime. You might be put in jail for such act."
"Oh, really? I did not even care."
"But something happened afterwards, didn't it?" asked Peter curiously.
"Well, I just jealoused my husband because he got two lovers while I got only one. I wanted to have two just like him. I came up with the idea that I could share the one he's got. Takeshi should be not only Yoshio's. He should be mine, too. So later when Takeshi and I became alone at home, I seduced him and invited him to the bed."
"He's got on it. No man could refuse your offer?" said Peter.
"Of course. I succeeded. I caught him and Takeshi and I got on bed naked making love. We got really wonderful time until my husband came back home without notice. He suddenly opened the door and came up to us naked on the bed. I was terrified but expected him to understand why Takeshi and I did that. But..."
"What happened? Did he kill the sworn brother? He should have been strongly angry with Takshi."
"No, not angry with him. He was very, very angry with me for seducing his loved one"said Masako.
"He grabbed me out of bed slapped my cheek and put me on the floor and said "Bitch, inpure, dirty girl." He humiliated me in front of Takeshi. Later we got divorce. Takeshi and Yoshio still continue working together. Yoshio blamed me for everything.
"Oh, no. He chose his sworn brother over you. Why? You are such a beautiful and attractive woman."
"You are a man in the military. You know why. Male-Male bond is very unique in that sense, isn't it. They think women are inpure so having relationship with women is enjoyable but at the same time inpuring yourselves. Don't you think so? You wouldn't choose me over Captain Rohm, would you?"
Peter seemed very confused by Masako's question. He looked nervous and said,
"Well, actually I do not know what to do. I know Captain likes me but I am no queer or homosexual. I met you and fell in love with you...."
"But you are still attracted to Captain?"
Peter just couldn't find right answer.
"Sorry, Peter. You are nice man. But I don' t want any more fuss. I really want a man who truly loves me, only me."
Peter just sat on the sofa and said nothing to respond.
Masako just left the room.
