gThat alone means a lot! When it is very cold outside, or when I am worn out by my duties, I feel too weary to get out into the fields. However, when I think that Renrin would be very saddened if the fruits wither and fall, I will regain my strength to step outside.h
Seitaku said, looking up at the trees in the orchard.

gI am watching over this kingdom. Are there any bad signs? Is there anything deficient? I keep watching these issues, because these are the duties of a caretaker. And Taiho is watching over me the caretaker. Am I fulfilling my duties completely? Are there any bad indications? She is also constantly watching. I can say that my success is indebted to that those eyes that are watching over me.h

Watching over, Taiki repeated the phrase in his mouth.
gIs it... is it alright for me to do just that?h
gNever overlook that as trivial. Watching is a very difficult job itself. Just look at your bodyguard over there.h

I guess you are right, Taiki said as he looked at Tansui. All along, Tansui stood close and still, keeping an eye on the surroundings.
gRunning around and doing this and that are not the only difficult things, are they?h

Taiki nodded and looked at Seitaku in awe.
gIf I watch over Mister Gyousou, he would be delighted, wouldnft he?h
Of course he would, Seitaku said smilingly.

gI know nothing about politics or being a kirin, but I know about crops and being an emperor. I believe that Tai-ou would also asking for Taihofs watching.h
Really? Taiki thought to himself. It is barely imaginable that Gyousou asked for a favor from a child like Taiki.

gIf I am the guardian of this kingdom, Renrin is my guardian. Perhaps that is the real job of a kirin.h
