28 Episode 28 "The Name of the Master is 'The Dragon ...

"I'm Yukino-Claude Dragonchild! Thank you for your help!

When Yukino arrived at Hazama Village, she bowed to everyone in the village.
 I've already asked the harpies to tell the village about her. I'm also indebted to the village, you know. Just as a courtesy.

 As for Yukino, I'll take care of her.
 That she's human. She just came from the capital and has no relatives.
 And that Yukino will work with me as my guest.

 That's why everyone in the village is waiting for us behind the castle gate...

"Welcome to Hazama Village!
You've come a long way! I'll have your food ready in no time!
Shoma's guests are always welcome.
Tell me about the city... - Are you Shoma's girlfriend? Did you kidnap her? Did you kidnap her? I heard that you want to be free!

 They all welcomed Yukino with open arms.

"...... Aww, aww.

 Yukino's eyes are black and white.

I'm sure you're all demons. They have horns. ...... They're cool. There are also little ones ...... that are cute .......

 ...... Yeah. I think I'll fit in surprisingly quickly.

 Yukino has decided to stay at the village chief's house for a while.
 She will be living with Lisette and Haruka. In the meantime, I'm going to live in Lisette's house.

 Both Lisette and Haruka recognize Yukino's abilities and like her.
 Since they are both girls, it's better for them to be together.
 I'm going to take care of her as someone who comes from another world.

So, Yukino, what are you going to do now?
Yes, yes! What can I do for you, Mr. Shoma?
You must be tired after your long journey. If you want to sleep, I can take you to the house. Do you want something to eat first?
Um, well, ...... I...

 Yukino looked at her hands and feet and ran her thin fingers over her face.
 Yukino looked at her hands and feet, stroked her face with her thin fingers, then slapped the dust off her clothes.

If you don't mind, I'd like to wash myself first, since I'm dirty from the long trip.

 He bowed his head to us.

We don't want to make a mess in your house or on your bedding.
I know a good place for that.

 Lysette took Yukino's hand.

I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea. I'm not sure what to do with it, but I'm sure it'll be fine.
I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.

 Haruka took over Lysette's words.

If you want, you can join us there.
Lysette and Haruka were just thinking about washing up.
Yeah, yeah.

 When they stared at her, Yukino turned her head away in embarrassment.
 Then she looked up and said.

I'm looking forward to working with you!
"Yes. With pleasure!
Then let's get going! Hey!

 And with that, Haruka grabbed Yukino's hand...

 For some reason, she grabbed my hand with the other hand.

"Eh... I'm not going to go in with you, brother! It's a family bath. ......
You're being a bit of a prude, Haruka!
Oh, I'm not so sure about that either. ......

 It's natural.
 I'm not sure if you're planning to go in with me, Haruka.

I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.
 Well, I was supposed to keep watch while the three of us washed up.

 When you are taking a bath, you are defenseless. You don't even have clothes on, let alone armor.
 That's a threat to wild animals. I guess we have no choice.

 And so we came to a bathing place 15 minutes walk from the village.
 It was a rocky place by a waterfall, surrounded by trees.

...... Oh.

 I sighed unconsciously.
 Actually, this is my first time here. I was told by Lisette and Haruka that I would be invited when I was clean.

 Yukino is also staring at the scene in front of her with wide eyes.

 In a quiet forest, surrounded by trees. The only sounds were the birds and the flowing hot water.
 It was as if I had come to a hidden hot spring in the original world.

 In front of me was a rocky area with a large hollow in it, just like a bathtub.
 Beside the bathtub is a small rocky hill. There are some holes in the middle of the rock wall, and warm water is flowing down from them. The walls and floor of the bathtub are smooth, probably because they have been carved by the flow of water over the years. It is large enough to hold ten people.
 It must have been really peaceful and prosperous in the time of the Dragon Emperor to have such a thing.

 This place fell into disuse because it was infested with demons. But thanks to the wards, that danger is gone.
 And because the magic of the land has been revitalized, the amount of hot water has increased and the place has completely regained its former glory.

 The other day, Lisette and Haruka cleaned it up.
 They then decided to use it as the village's "family bath.
 I should give them the right to the first bath and some other perks for their hard work, but...

"So, as a naming right, Lisette wanted to name this place 'Haou no Yu'.
I think 'Shoma's Bath' would be better.

 I think 'Shoma's Bath' is better. ...... That's the end of the story. It's...

You should come in later. That's for sure!

 I can hear Haruka shouting from behind the trees.
 I can also hear the sound of loud water.

 I leaned my back against a tree and listened to her voice in a daze.
 This is the forest by the bathhouse. I'm standing guard there.
 I can hear Haruka's voice clearly because he's bathing right there. I'm on the other side, across the trees, on the rocks.

You're testing the reasoning of ...... Alaska, d*mn it.

 I don't feel like peeking into my sister-in-law's bathtub when I've just arrived in another world. I'm not familiar enough with this world or settled enough to be able to do that. There's a lot going on.

"Did you say something? Boss!
It's nothing.

 ......... Haruka's too innocent.
 I'm not sure what to say.

I'm sure you're not the only one.
What's that for? Haruka.
To rub your back with your brother!
I knew about ....... I'm just asking.

 I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.

You should learn some discretion. Don't you think you should wait until you're sure of your brother Shoma's feelings before you do something like that?
"What? Why? We're family, aren't we?
...... They're children, you know.

 Lysette broke off.
 Then there was a pause...

"Are your breasts the only thing that's gotten bigger? ...... Oh, my God. ......
Hmm? What is it? Liz.
It's nothing. But you should wash Yukino's back.

 Haruka stopped flapping her feet.
 Then I heard her scraping water and moving.

Yukino-chan, turn around. I'll wash your feet if you like. This "Yormult's grass" can be used for purification. It often grows in muddy places, so you'd better remember it.
"Yes, sir. I'll turn my back on .......

 I'm not sure what to make of it.

I'm not sure what to make of it.
I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one.

 I'm not sure what to make of it.

"Yes. I was convinced when I saw the development of this village that ...... I could meet the True Lord here, but I don't know where he is .......
I see. ...... It's a big frontier, though.

 ...... "The True Lord".
 I know the circumstances of my reincarnation, but it was too heavy for me to ask.

 But now, perhaps because she's taking a hot bath, Yukino is talking in a relaxed manner.
 If she's like this, she might be able to ask about the "true Lord" naturally.
 If we can find out more about him, we can help you find him.

"The Harpy, our ally, knows a lot. If we can find out what he looks like, we can at least get a clue.

Is that so?
The Harpies respect you, so I'm sure they'll help you.
You're a great guy, aren't you, Shoma?
I don't have to tell you that.
I don't need to tell you that.

 Lysette suddenly joined the conversation.

He's the king of the land and a member of Lysette's family. I'm sure that whatever Yukino's 'true master' is, he's no match for you, brother Shoma.
I don't want to hear that!

 I'm sorry.

 ...... I heard something that sounded like Yukino getting up.

 I'm not sure.

 ...... I wonder if Lysette got up too.

I'm not sure what to do.

 ...... They're glaring at each other, I'm sure.
 I wish they'd wait until they're dressed before they start fighting.
 Not like this. I can't just walk in on them. .......

Brother! Liz and Yukino are staring at each other! Come here and stop them!

 I'm not sure what to say.

 ...... But I can't help it.

"Yukino. I want to hear it too. About your "true master.

 I've decided to intervene with my voice only.

"Lysette, calm down. We can't compare without knowing what he's like. Let's listen to Yukino here.
"If you say so, ...... Shoma-sama, then ...... Kushun.


 I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that. I think.

I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure you'll be able to do it.

 I'm sure you'll have a great time.

"That's right. Let me hear your story first. Let's get warmed up first.
Haruka is right, isn't she?
That's right.



 He's warmed up.

"First of all, I'd like to share my secret with you .......

 After a while, Yukino began to speak.

"I'm sorry for not telling you. I'm actually from another world.
"Is that so?
No response! What? Huh?

 ...... I can't help it.
 Yukino, you're the second person from another world.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not.

 Perhaps regaining her composure, Yukino began to speak again.

In the original world, I was ...... weak and was in and out of hospitals ...... and doctors' facilities. I was told that I had a difficult ...... disease and that I would not live long. I was desperate, but he gave me a mission to live. That's why he's the true Lord.
"......, is that so?

 Lysette murmured.

You're right. That person is very important to you, isn't it, Yukino?
What is the name of this person?
"Yuuki Ryuo, the organic farmer.

 ............ What?

"Probably the 'Dragon King of Harnessing the Power of the Earth'. And in this frontier, there's a large scale cultivation going on. Organic farming is now in full swing. And here is the hot spring of the "Dragon Emperor". It has something to do with dragons.
 That's why I confirmed it. My true master will appear here!

 ............ "The Organic Dragon King" ............?
 ...... Something's bugging me. .......
 It's like a chirping sound in my head. It's like a door is about to open that should not be opened.

 .............................. ......?

 Calm down. Relax me.
 I'm calm. Let's have some tea first. I think I got some in a canteen in the village.
 Drink it and you'll calm down.
 I'll get rid of this weird thing in my memory...

"Oh, excuse me. I'm sorry. "Organic Dragon King" is just my own translation. He called himself the 'Organic Dragon King'!
Whoa! Brother Shoma, what's wrong?
Oh, brother, are you okay?

 Zap. Splash. Splash, splash, splash!

I'm fine. I mean, Haruka! Don't come over here!
Haruka! Stop running around in the dark!
What the...
Aah! Aah!

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.

 I'm going to hold my mouth and cough.
 I'm not sure what you're talking about. ...... What did you just say, Yukino ......? No way. .......

"...... 'Organic Dragon King' ...... 'Organic Dragon King'
"...... Shoma-san! Do you have any idea what that means?
............ No, no, ......

 ...... It's me.
 It's me, from my second childhood!
It's an early version of "Dragon King Shoma"!

I'm sure you've heard of it, but I've never heard of it.
 Later, when I found out that "organic" means "organically grown", I stopped using it. In fact, I believe I've only used the name "Organic Dragon King" twice. And yet...

"...... I didn't think Yukino knew that name. ......

 It's confirmed.
 Yukino is a person from my world, a girl I met when I was a junior high school sophomore.

So you're saying that the goddess is collecting the souls of qualified people over a time span of a dozen years?

 This is also important information, but ...... it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter.

 ...... What to do? I'm not sure what to do.
 The "true master" she's looking for is the middle school me. The younger me. But now I'm Alaska.
 Can I call myself ......? I'm sure you're not the only one.

 I don't know what's wrong with me.

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's a good idea. A childhood friend who is more than 10 years younger than you is too much of a power word. ......?

Please listen. I'm sorry. My memories of my True Lord: ......

 Yukino began to speak over the steam.

"...... It was one night when I met him.

 It was a story of a different world, one that I knew well.
