~ Chapter Three~


gIf she cut the thread, she cuts of the babyfs head as well. If the babyfs thread is cut, the ladyfs head would be cut off as well. Same thing for Rokutafs thread. You are a kirin totoaly different from mere sages, so your head would not be cut off, but you will be in great pain for sure. Maybe you horn will even be cut off.
gc Got it.h

gThreads are hung outside the prison. One step out of the prison, and the threads would all be cut.h
gAnd the baby and Ribi would end up in pretty unsightly looks.h
gAfter all the ruckus ends, will you return the baby?h
Kouya smiled.

gYou know a lot about kirin.h
The average person doesnft know anything about kirinfs horns.
gIt is because of rokuta -- or the Big One. Everything end up pretty much the same for youma and shinjyuu (_blit. heavenly beasts).h
gMy shirei wonft tell me a thing!h
gThe Big One doesnft tell me anything as well! But if you are with it for that long, you will learn many things about it.h

Kouya picked up the baby and gave it to Ribi.
gI will leave the baby to you. Please take care of it. If you need anything, we will bring it here for you.h
Ribi spat the words lightly, but Kouya just kept his smile.
gIf you need anything else, feel free to ask.h
Ribi didnft answer, but only glared at Kouya with deep disdain. Kouya aloofly received her glare.

Rokuta looked at Kouya. gRibi and I would sit still. --Will you drop by often?h
gYeah, to see how my hostages are doing.h
Rokuta nodded, and added g--What a pity that we meet again like this.h
Kouya nodded in agreement.
gSame here, Rokuta.h
