Chapter 2: The Wonderful World of Shinga
Nobunaga ordered Mitsuhide to be in charge of her studies about the world of Shinga.
She learned how to read letters and toured the town around the castle, but…
After returning from the yakuma extermination, maybe because I was tired, I had fallen asleep in my room before I knew it.
[YUZUKI]: (…… Haa, my body still feels a bit sluggish.)
The moment I sighed–
[RANMARU]: “…… It’s me. May I come in?”
[YUZUKI]: “Ah, mm. Go ahead.”
[RANMARU]: “Excuse me…… You still don’t look so well. I’ll bring dinner over so please rest some more.”
.[YUZUKI]: “Thank you for worrying.”
[RANMARU]: “…… It’s nothing…… um, I’m sorry for today. We went out for a change of pace, but it became a yakuma extermination……”
[YUZUKI]: “No, I didn’t even know about yakuma so it was a good experience.”
[RANMARU]: “Having you say that makes me feel lighter. Um, if there’s anything I can do, please say it without reservation, okay?”
[RANMARU]: “Nobunaga-sama is also worried, and wishes for you to be healthy soon.”
[YUZUKI]: “Nobunaga-san is… worried about me……?”
[RANMARU]: “Yes. My coming here is also partially because Nobunaga-sama asked me to check in on you.”
[RANMARU]: “So, please show Nobunaga-sama a lively look tomorrow, okay?”
[YUZUKI]: (…… That Nobunaga-san is… worried about me…… huh. Though what he’s worried about is probably my blood……)
[IMARI]: “Excuse me……”
[YUZUKI]: “Ah, Imari-kun!”
Imari-kun, who suddenly appeared, didn’t seem energetic.
[YUZUKI]: “What’s wrong? Did something happen?”
[IMARI]: “That’s… because I couldn’t get any promising information…… and I made you wait this long, I’m sorry.”
I gently petted Imari-kun who was looking down, depressed.
[YUZUKI]: “Cheer up, Imari-kun. You don’t need to bear everything alone. Let’s work hard together, okay?”
[YUZUKI]: “Because right now I’m also learning a lot about Shinga.”
[IMARI]: “Uwuwu, thank you so much!”
[IMARI]: “Alriiight, I’m fired up! I’m going to go collect information again!”
Clenching a small paw, Imari-kun left the room.
[YUZUKI]: (Imari-kun also wants to meet his precious Himemiko-sama…… it’d be nice if there was some kind of progress.)
[RANMARU]: “I apologize for the wait. I’ve brought dinner.”
[YUZUKI]: “Ah, Ranmaru-kun! And Mitsuhide too.”
[MITSUHIDE]: “Excuse my intrusion. My apologies, but I was also concerned about your condition.”
[YUZUKI]: “Thank you for your concern. I think I’ll probably be better after resting this entire day.”
[MITSUHIDE]: “I see. Then we shall continue your studies tomorrow.”
[MITSUHIDE]: “These are some books we will be using tomorrow that I will leave here. If you’d like, please take a look at them.”
[YUZUKI]: (I wonder what kind of books they are?)
When I looked at the books I received from Mitsuhide, they were divided into various genres like geography, history, and plants.
In particular, the book about plants had cute raised cloth pictures and looked interesting.
[MITSUHIDE]: “Haha, as one would think, a woman would be interested in the book about plants.”
[YUZUKI]: “Yes, every flower picture is cute.”
[RANMARU]: “I chose that book, you know. I thought you would probably like things like that.”
[YUZUKI]: “That’s true. Thank you, Ranmaru-kun.”
[RANMARU]: “It’s nothing. If you have any requests, I could introduce you to other picture books!”
[YUZUKI]: “Mm, I look forward to that!”
[MITSUHIDE]: “…… Then, we should take our leave here. Please take care of yourself.”
[RANMARU]: “Please take it easy and rest.”
Holding the book that was lent to me to my chest, I nodded firmly.
