"Rin, if you think you can trust me enough, then please, just let me help you cool you down and get that sweat off you." You lean forward a bit, putting your arms on your legs for support, sitting beside the bed Rin is laying in. "You don't necessarily need to be in a tub full of water if you can just cooperate with me on this. All I need for you to do is let me wash you, in fact I'll only wash the parts of you that's not covered by your pajamas. At the very least, you're feel fresher, if not better. It'll help in the long run, you do want to recover from this, right?" You sit there for a moment, but Rin doesn't respond, not for a nice while. You sigh and sit up, about to leave thinking that Rin has declined you via silence, until she speaks up.
"Satoshi...why can't I resist that logical sounding serious voice of yours..." You blink for a moment before smiling and sitting back down.
"Because I'm right and you know it. So?"
"Ugh, fine." Rin turns over wearily, she does seem better then earlier, but still terribly fatigued and under the weather. "If it'll make me feel better I suppose I have choice. I feel really icky anyways..." You can't help but smile, finally, things are going your way.
"Great, I'll bring in a sponge and tub of water really quick then..."
"Could you bring a big enough tub for me to sit in, if you have one? I don't have to make your bed all soggy..." You freeze in middle of your motion to stand up, rather surprised, though whether it's at Rin's thoughtfulness or otherwise is another story.
"Uhh...sure thing, I guess." You finish standing up and go out to fetch the required items for this venture. First thing's first, you grab a large, metal tub out from your kitchen, it's rather crude, but it's the only one that'll fit Rin. You then grab a large pitcher and drag them into the bathroom, grabbing proper soap and a large sponge, with a couple washcloths. You also grab a large towel for yourself, if you need the drying off. You know it's highly unlikely, but you always remember the golden rule Yukari taught you; Always bring a towel. For some reason, it always worked.
With all the items in the tub, you lug it back into the bedroom and set it down in front of the bed, but it's here you notice something. Rin's camisole and bloomers are resting a bit haphazardly on the table nearby...
"...what?" is her response to your awkward stare at her. She's clearly embarrassed though, knowing exactly what's on your mind. She answers that burning question seering a hole in your head. "I didn't want my clothes to get wet...besides, I didn't see any point in washing just parts of myself. I hate water but I hate being dirty too..." Ahaha, she may be a cat but she's also a girl at heart too, it seems.
"Well that's going to make it harder to protect your modesty in the end." You start off saying, as you empty the vat of it's items, organizing things. "It's not like I could blindfold myself and still wash you effectively, or, wash your entire body for that matter..."
"...what modesty? You've seen it already, haven't you..." The poor girl is clenching the covers on top of her a bit tightly while looking away, being the only thing keeping said subject from being spoiled right now.
"You really sound like you don't want to do this. It's not too late to turn back, or, hell, to put your clothes back on..."
"I just want to get better, I've never felt so terrible physically in my whole life...besides, I owe you some right to have control, after what's happened..."
Ugh, that's not cool. It feels like she's practically offering her body to you out of sheer submissive will. It goes back to the whole pet/master thing you thought you discussed well enough with her, though it seems weakness will keep her continuing down that mindframe. This isn't the time to argue with her about it though.
"Just take this and get in the tub. If you can't get in by yourself, I'll lift you in, but at least cover yourself enough." Rin looks up at you for a moment and weakly takes the large towel you brought in for yourself, mostly.
"A-Alright then." You take a big sigh and take the pitcher back into the bathroom, allowing a bit of time for Rin to get into the tub. You fill it nice and full with some warm water, and after waiting a few more moments, you walk back into the bedroom and find...
...Rin shivering in bed uncontrollably. The covers are moved aside and Rin herself is laying on her side, back to you. The towel is only covering her front side, with her two tails bending down from her lower back and curling in between her legs. While it looks pitiful, it's preserving an important part of her chastity at least.
"Uh...Rin, are you okay?" You say to her as you approach the bed.
"S-S-So cold..." You sigh again.
"Jeez, you're hopeless..." You then pour some of the water into the tub, so that it's just about ankle deep. This pretty much drains the majority of the pitcher so you'll be going back out once more it seems. For now though, you set the pitcher down and walk over to the bed, bending down and picks Rin up, in a silly bridal style you wish you could both stay away from and do more often. Oh, how nice to be met with our old friend conflicting feelings again.
You set Rin down sitting in the tub gently. Her body is extremely hot though. The fever is showing it's signs of over exhaustion, Rin must be pushing herself a little too hard. It's a pretty nasty predicament, you need to cool Rin down, but at the same time, uncontrolled cold weakens her body. Hopefully, the bath will settle things. You pet Rin a bit before rushing out the bedroom and refilling the pitcher with lots of warm water just in case, since scraping the bottom of the metal tub is the last thing you want to do. Upon coming back into the bedroom, Rin seems to have relaxed a bit, sitting on the tub, but her embarrassment, and hot chills, are very clearly noticeable.
"It's alright, Rin. I'll be sure to finish as soon as possible." You say this as you sit on your knees behind Rin and get things ready. You almost hesitate though, as Rin seems rather upset. She definitely doesn't want to be doing this. You try and force yourself though, because once it's over, both of you will feel better about it. Well, Rin will, at the very least..
It starts off simple enough. Your soak the sponge well enough so that it'll moisten Rin's skin nicely, but isn't too drenched in water that it ends up being too much. You start with Rin's shoulders and upper back, and washing her arms next afterwards. It's calming, relaxing, and rather peaceful. Rin's panting calms itself during the process, as does her shivering, letting you know that the warmth from the water is helping. Soon, it's a very peaceful activity, and as long as you take it slow, Rin herself doesn't seem to mind, until she perks up a bit and starts talking to you.
"You know...whenever...Satori-sama bathed me, it was always a hassle...she would try to wash me with so much water and did it rather brashly..." Rin doesn't look at you when she says this, but it's excusable, she seems to be just staring aimlessly with a look of forelonging painting her face. She seems rather emotional at the moment. Satori, having been gone for so long, and being potentially in danger of dying, must've been hard on her. You don't even know how long the two have been together, but it's probably much longer then you could comprehend.
"Did she always try to wash you in your cat form?" Rin nods softly in response.
"I hated taking baths so much. Any time I felt it was unnecessary, Satori-sama would always have to force it on me...but I think that's one of the things that brought us closer together..." You nearly stop cleaning Rin upon hearing this, but you continued nonetheless, unfettered by this notion.
"Huh...I see..." You're not sure why, but it kinda pangs you. It feels like you're being compared to Satori, to whom you know you'd never compare to, not in Rin's mind. Because of this, you feel the need to get this off your chest. "What...what about now then? What...I mean, how do you feel about this method then? It's a lot less water so..." You feel like you're trying to avoid the end result of what you really want to ask, but you're not going to go there. Insecurity be damned.
"...well, I still hate it, but right now I'd rather do this then get forced to bathe like Satori-sama makes me do. Besides..." You see Rin's toes twiddling a bit at the other end of the tub during this next part. "We can talk a bit more candidly like this, and I really like talking to you at times...bathing does that, you know?" Over the past few days before Rin came down with this flu, you and her steadily began talking more. It was very casual at first, just about random things, but over time, particularly yesterday, you found your talks with her somewhat addicting, looking forward to spending time with her to just chat.
It feels so incredibly refreshing to talk to Rin like that, something you discovered just yesterday you think. Talking with Alice, you always felt stupid, because Alice typically lead the conversation with topics you were nigh not knowledgeable enough about to really have much say in the matter. With Marisa, it felt very natural at times, but in reality, the two of you share little interests, and whenever it came down to when you two had nothing to say, it got extremely awkward. Finally, when you talk with Keine-sensei, it's more or less just you listening to her chatter on about her life or work. You hardly ever say much to her, and she, unfortunately, doesn't seem too interested in your life anymore since you left the human village. Quite honestly, those three are probably the people you talk to most, since even your closest friends in the human village, apart from Keine-sensei, all drifted from you when you left.
It's very nice to know Rin feels the same way about your chats with her too though. Your sentimental feelings though, come to a halt when Rin laughs a bit weakly, and says the following line.
"Haha, although...normally girls just talk like that when they're bathing together...it's not like you're the naked one here. Unless you wanted to for the sake of conversation."
You stop instantly, having to turn your head away, as it's nearly bursting out with blood. When Rin finished saying that, the thoughts came in...the oh so perverted thoughts. Bathing together? With Rin? Bathing with a girl before was a concept that had honestly never entered your mind in such a fashion before and now that it has, it's struck you like a ton of bricks. Oh man, you feel a nosebleed coming on...
"...I-I was joking, don't take it seriously or I'll kill you after this is over..." You look back and see Rin giving you a tired death glare, or, well, maybe it's more of a fatigued annoyed stare, you can't tell when she's in this condition.
"Geh, no way, that's just creepy." Rin's expression changes, and now it's kinda like she's just looking at you quite unimpressed with your words.
"Then...why are you blushing...?"
"You had to remind me you were naked, okay? I'm still trying to deal with that."
"What? Do you realize how easy you are to tease, Satoshi?"
Oh, you know. Marisa has taken advantage of it all too well at times. Good proof might be the one time you made the mistake of bringing Rin over.
"...shut up and give me your other arm."
"You're pushing it for someone who's being hand washed considerately."
"I'm also not the one with a hard third leg here."
"...you tease Utsuho with that a lot, don't you?"
"Hehe, I do. She hates me for it but she know I love her."
After that short rally, Rin allows you to continue washing her. It's somewhat rare that you and Rin would toss sexual gestures and comments to each other in such a casual manner, but anytime it happens, it makes you feel a little bit better considering the awful start you two hard on that front, what with her coming out and claiming you as a dirty pervert suddenly. The talk continues on a bit, peacefully and calmly, as Rin displays very little actual energy. So the conversation more or less feels emotional in a relaxing sense. Although, as Rin predicted, it's a bit more revealing then the conversations you two normally have are.
"Well, I did do some pretty weird shit as a kid myself..." was your response to Rin being nostalgic about her youth, particularly her corruption of such.
"Really? I'm curious, when did you know about sex?"
"Eh? Why do you want to know something like that?"
"I just told you. I don't talk with many humans you know."
"Well...I guess it was like, sometime when I was ten or eleven, probably going on it."
"Did you catch your folks doing it something?"
"Ugh, I wish I was normal like that...this older girl I knew in school more or less taught me in a hands on and aimless kinda way."
"Ehh? Really? Did she like..."
"She just took advantage of me, I'll leave it at that." Normally, this is where the subject would start shifting directions, but Rin starts urging you to go on. You feel as if her own nudity in physical form is guilting you into thinking that you owe her some form of exposure yourself in return, so you do eventually give in.
"Wow, did she really do that? How old was she?"
"About fourteen, maybe fifteen, I'm not sure anymore. She was very straight forward with it though...but she wasn't very experienced."
"So she was just doing it to get that experience out of you then."
"I guess so, you seem a lot better yourself then she was at the time."
"Eh? What do you mean by that?"
"Well, what about you? I mean, I don't even know how you youkai think about sex."
"Well, most of the ones I know, we don't really think about it, it just comes naturally I guess. We know when the time is right."
"Oh, so is it like when you're in heat or something?"
"What? If you wanna put it that way, I guess. You humans are so vulgar..."
"Well excuse me for using vulgar terms then."
"We're a lot more honorable then you take us for, even if we feel it by instinct. At least we don't just go about doing it randomly for all the wrong reasons like you do."
"...there are humans that know when the time is right too." Rin looks at you kind of surprised. You've all but stopped what you were doing for the most part to continue on. "I don't know if you youkai deal with such a thing, but some of us humans, we do it out of love. When we're with someone we love and care for very much, usually we get very intimate with them until it happens...you say we all just go about it randomly with no real purpose, but there are people who take it very seriously and would only do such a thing with the one person they love most on this planet."
That was a rather sappy thing of you to say, but after reading that story, you get the feeling that's the kind of lesson Keine-sensei was trying to pass down onto you. You feel a bit more understanding of the whole concept of 'love' now, you think.
"Huh...love then..." You nod to Rin softly as she looks back down in the tub in wonder. "Then...should I be having sex with Okuu and Satori-sama or something?" W-W-What?! You could swear that you would have done a spit-take just now, had your mouth been full of a beverage of any sort.
"N-No! That's not right!" Rin then looks back at you a little confused.
"What do you mean by love then? I feel that I love Satori-sama and Okuu, so if what you're saying is true..."
"But...ugh. That kind of love is kind of like a family type love. Like the love you'd give a sister or brother. The love I'm talking about is more...uhh...intimate, I guess." Wow, you suck at explaining things. It shows too.
"I don't get it. What's this kind of love you're talking about then?" You want to explain it to her, but you feel that not only would you not be able to explain it clearly enough, but that she wouldn't really understand either. The love you're talking about is one of the most human emotions you can think of, so it's possible it might be a bit beyond Rin's understanding without her experiencing it firsthand. Something you're not capable of right at this moment.
"I can't really tell you, but I'll say that...you'll know the feeling when talking to someone starts making your heart race, or it gives you butterflies in your stomach knowing that you'll see them soon. It's a happy but anxious type of feeling I guess."
"...sounds troublesome." When you put it that way, yes, it does sound troublesome, and for some people, that alone couldn't describe it well enough. You ignore this for now to continue washing her up. But a few more moments into it, you realize something. You're run out of expose areas to clean. All that remains is her chest, stomach and pubic areas, two of which you're know you're not allowed to go near, but...
"...Satoshi, what's wrong?" Rin's noticed your hesitation. You sigh a bit, preparing for bad omens.
"Your stomach...I can't wash it with your towel in the way." Rin looks down at her for a moment before rather reluctantly lowering the towel down to just below her waist, covering her above-average chest with her free arm. She's looking away in a pretty embarrassed and apprehensive way.
"I don't understand what you're so huffy about. I mean, I think your stomach i-"
"Don't finish that sentence, I don't want to know what kind of awful things occupy your perverted mind." Gah, you can't take it anymore. That's just wrong, especially since you two were so casually joking about it earlier.
"Listen, I'm not perverted, okay? I have my urges, sure, but it's not like I'm out to catch a peek all the time or something." Your voice is as stern as it can get without being raised, something you know you shouldn't do to a sick person. "I'm only human, but I'm not any worse. Seeing you naked isn't a goal of mine." Rin looks down guilt ridden suddenly.
"...I'm sorry. I guess you're right. It's not like you haven't seen me before already anyways so I guess it doesn't matter then..."
"Not that I want you to stop, but if you honestly felt that way, why are you still covering yourself like that?" Rin suddenly looks like a realization just hit her square in the face.
"...I...don't know..." After a little hesitation, she's about to bring her arm off her chest when you stop her in a hurry, wondering why you weren't scared of that happening in the first place.
"H-Hey, what did I just say?"
"You asked me yourself, I have no reason to..."
"Yes you do."
"Then what's that reason?"
"Because you still have some modesty left in you until you willingly want to expose yourself to me like that." Rin just looks at you somewhat puzzled. This just goes back to the whole love thing. But it's a sign of hope at least, since even though she lacks understanding of it, she still tried preserving herself out of instinct.
You get back to washing Rin, making sure she continues covering herself, if only for her own sake, so she won't get insecure on you like that. After a bit of rinsing and more washing, you tell Rin she can lift the tower back up to her chest, only to receive no response...you even poke her a few times, she's out cold. Maybe cold, isn't the right word, as when you put your hand on her forehead, once again you nearly burn yourself. Her fever seems to be rising a bit again, you hope it's not because you make her lower the towel, though it's sort of amazing how she could fall asleep like that, still protecting her breasts in such a manner.
She still needs to be cleaned a bit, notably rinsing and finishing her arms. There's also the matter of her chest and, well, pubic area, but you're not sure if you should take advantage of Rin's state like that, even if it's for a good cause. It might still make her feel better though...and then there's the whole issue of drying her and getting her dressed again. Oh man, either way, it looks like chastity is going to be promptly flung out the window for this. Looking at your clock, it seems it's been almost an hour and a half since this all started too, so in effect, it's quite late at night now. You might have to put Rin to bed for tonight, and potentially get some sleep yourself, though the option of doing other things instead after getting Rin back in bed are still there, as always...
For now, you should probably think of a good way you're going to go about doing this. You might have to get a little creative if you still care about Rin's modesty, even if she's mostly unconscious...
