SNB Kanbee ~ Awakening ~

Posted on Updated on

[YUZUKI]: (I wonder if today’s battle is a hard one…… they’ve been fighting for quite a long time though……)

[YUZUKI]: (Even though everyone said this enemy wasn’t a big deal……)

The battle, which had started at noon, continued on into the night. The only thing I could do, waiting at the main camp, was to suppress my anxiety and pray for everyone’s safety.

[KANBEE]: “…… Gugh, haa, haa.”

[YUZUKI]: (Ah, Kanbee-san has returned– wah! There’s so much… blood……)

Kanbee-san’s body, as he staggered weakly over, was covered in countless wounds.

[YUZUKI]: “Kanbee-san!? Those injuries……!”

[KANBEE]: “It’s you…… I, I am fine.”

[YUZUKI]: “How are you fine……! We need to hurry and treat– ah, watch out!”

[KANBEE]: “–!? D-DON’T COME CLOSE……”

I ran over to Kanbee-san, who seemed about to collapse, but my stretched out hand was shaken off.

[YUZUKI]: “But……”

[KANBEE]: “Haa, haa, I am fine. I will not die from these trifling wounds.”

In contrast to those words, Kanbee-san’s eyes were empty, and sweat ran down his forehead.

[YUZUKI]: (Kanbee-san…… at this rate, he’ll really be in danger……)

[KANBEE]: “…… Which way is to the front? I need to hurry and return to everyone.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Huh? W-What are you saying. Kanbee-san, you came back to be treated, right?”

[KANBEE]: “You are mistaken. I do not require treatment…… Simply, the moment I received these injuries, your face appeared in my mind for some reason……”

[KANBEE]: “By the time I noticed, I had arrived here…… This will not do…… especially in the middle of battle……”

[KANBEE]: “…… I feel slightly at ease after seeing your face…… I shall now return to the battlefield.”

[YUZUKI]: (Wha!? H-He’s really going to return like that!?)

[YUZUKI]: “Please wait, Kanbee-san! My blood should be able to heal you.”

[KANBEE]: “Wh… at.”

[YUZUKI]: “Please drink my blood.”

[KANBEE]: “…… Ugh, but.”

[YUZUKI]: “It might be too late if you leave it like this. –Now, hurry.”

[KANBEE]: “A… aa.”

[YUZUKI]: “I’m okay with this, because this is to heal your injuries, Kanbee-san.”

Kanbee-san took my arm and opened his mouth. However, he seemed to realize something suddenly and drew away from me.

[YUZUKI]: “U-Um, Kanbee-san……?”

[KANBEE]: “…… kgh, on second thought, I do not need it.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Huh?”

[KANBEE]: “I will not drink your blood.”

[YUZUKI]: “W-Why!”

[KANBEE]: “Certainly, I desire your blood. However, that is coming from my instincts which perceive that my life is in danger.”

[YUZUKI]: “A-And what’s wrong with that? It’s needed in order to help you……”

[KANBEE]: “…… I do not wish to give in to my instincts. Once I drink your blood, I will surely be unable to control myself any longer.”

[KANBEE]: “If that occurs…… sooner or later you will……”

[YUZUKI]: (Kanbee-san…… he’s thinking about me……)

I started to tear up at his kindness and at my frustration for myself, who couldn’t do anything.

[KANBEE]: “……? Why are you crying.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… I want you to live, Kanbee-san…… that’s why, I’m asking you… please……”

[KANBEE]: “…… Understood. So please, I beg you, do not cry.”

Wiping away my tears with a gentle finger, Kanbee-san slowly gripped my arm.

[KANBEE]: “In my current condition, I cannot control my strength well, and I might hurt you more than necessary…… so, give me your hand.”

[YUZUKI]: “Okay, I understand.”

Kanbee-san took out a dagger from his breast pocket and made me hold it before covering that hand with his own. Guided by him, I made a small cut on my own arm.

[KANBEE]: “…… Now, let us start.”

[YUZUKI]: “…… Yes.”

Kanbee-san tentatively brought his face close to my wound and quietly touched it with his tongue.

[YUZUKI]: “Ngh–“

[KANBEE]: “I apologize…… Did that hurt?”

[YUZUKI]: “N-No, it tickled a little…… p-please continue.”

[KANBEE]: “…… Understood.”

Little by little, as if he were tasting it, Kanbee-san licked my blood. Suppressing my quick heartbeat, I waited for time to pass.

After a while, Kanbee-san slowly drew away from my arm.

[YUZUKI]: “How are you, Kanbee-san. Is your body okay?”

[KANBEE]: “Aa, owing to you, my body is fine. Thank you, truly.”

[KANBEE]: “I will return to the frontline but…… I will definitely win this battle, for you as well.”

      SAME! He was so quiet in the other chapters and spoke so logically I actually had him pegged for another Mitsunari-ish, or like completely uninterested in anything. But he’s really sweet and caring inside ;w; a total reclusive bookworm!

    I love the story and how Kanbee cares for the protagonist so much. It’s like even if he’s kind of scary at first, he hides that caring side of him. His kindness makes my heart really warm and fuzzy, uwah~ Thanks as always, I always look forward to more!! ☆〜(ゝ。∂)

      He really really does ;w; and he seems to be one of the few who are like “No, I won’t drink your blood because x,y,z” unlike SOME people who are just SO OVEREAGER (coughs Hideyoshi coughs, haha). Poor Kanbee suffers from the permanent gloomy and scowling face and it doesn’t help that he wears all black like that, but yeah he’s honestly so sweet LOL. I’m happy you were touched by this story! It’s one of my favorite awakenings.
