gI am going to see the sea of clouds under such rare weather. Maybe I can see the scenery below... Can I pat Hien (ņ)?h
gSure, as you please.h
Taiki cocked his head as he stroked Hienfs
Surprised by Risaifs words, Taiki looked up to Seirai.
He was looking somewhere nonexistent and stifling his mischievous laughs.
Suddenly, Gantyou laughed, shaking his enormous
body. The bighearted laughs suited his rock-like big body well.
Hien howled as if to comfort Taiki. Taiki stroked Hienfs neck as he drew
a deep sigh.
gWell, Seirai must have been scolded by your majesty afterwards, so that would be a tie wouldnft it?h
Asen said and laughed, and Taiki burst into laughter as well. Seirai also chuckled. Asen was originally an Imperial Army General, and the new emperor Gyousou was originally also an Imperial Army General, the two were in very friendly terms as colleagues. Risai also had befriended with Gyousou, and Gantyou and Seirai were originally Gyousoufs subordinates. An amicable atmosphere unique among close friends enveloped the people.
Seirai urged Taiki as he continued laughing.
gCan I leave the Forbidden Gate and see the lower world?h
They had come all the way out from the inner palace. If they passed through the building Risai and others had gone out of, they would reach the Forbidden Gate. Seirai raised his eyebrows.
gThe lower world is freezing cold. Taiho is still young, you will instantly
get frozen from the inside out.h
gIfll take you there.h
gBut... what about work?h
Seeing his master smiling, Taiki broke into a smile as well. Gyousou is the one and only master, so Taiki was unconditionally happy just to be at his side. Taiki turned back to Seirai. gIfll just wait here,h Seirai said as he smiled and watched Taiki fondly.
