T.N: I’m translating Mitsuha

Edited by TheDefend 21/6/18

Chapter 35

But it’s long, it will take more than 1 day to translate 1 chapter.

So I will translate Kaoru daily instead,

I will also translate Mitsuha chapter 35 part by part every day.

After finished Kaoru’s arc, I will release Mitsuha chapter 35 at the same time.

If you ask why I can release Mitsuha and Kaoru in just 1 days.

Because I already finished translating about 80% of them before.


Kaoru Novel Chapter 49: Kidnapping

 

『What happened?』(Roland)

 

Taking dinner with everyone, Roland and Francette got out of the room

Emil and Bell were wandering in front of Kaoru’s room.

 

『Ah, no, Kaoru-sama …, I mean Kaoru didn’t reply no matter how hard we knocked…』(Emil)

 

Emil hurriedly corrected himself because calling Kaoru with “-sama” was prohibited, although the person herself wasn’t there.

 

『Is she sleeping soundly?
Is she going to the washroom?
Or has she went down to the first floor and have already eaten?
Well, … let’s go down, for now.』(Roland)

 

The three others followed Roland and went to the stairs because they didn’t have the key, they couldn’t suddenly break the door and enter either.

 

『Did you see her?』(Roland)

 

When Roland got off to the first floor, he asked the innkeeper and the receptionist lady immediately responded.

(T.N: Innkeeper and receptionist are 2 persons, Roland asked the innkeeper but the receptionist heard that and answered)

 

『Oh, the black-haired girl?
After she took a room, she went out immediately』(Receptionist)

『『『『Eeeee!?』』』』(Roland + Francette + Emil + Bell)

 

There might be a peculiar place she wanted to visit, and there would be no problem for Kaoru because she has money.
Even if she went out for a walk, she would definitely return by dinner time.
Kaoru is such a person, of course, everyone knew it.
That means… if she couldn’t return at her scheduled time, a problem has occurred.

 

『We’re moving out!』(Roland)

 

Roland said so and gave the key of the room to the counter, Emil also followed after.
The female team also followed the men’s team and dashed out of the inn. (T.N: Yes, how could I forget the verb dash)

 

 

****************************

 

 

Well, what should I do …
This place seems to be a hidden room in the basement of a house located in the city slums.
That one corner of the basement is separated to hide the cages.

These kidnappers have captured four children, including me, from 5 to 6 years old to about 10 years old.
… I will be 20 years old soon, don’t lump me in there!
Ah, I mean, I decided the day when I first came to this world as my 《15th birthday》
I also celebrate it as my birthday properly every year.
All by myself. (T_T)

When I invite people, I will be asked how old am I, so I don’t invite other people for my birthday.

 

Well, let’s leave it alone for now.
I wonder what I should be doing now.
This hidden room is small but divided into 2 parts: 1 part with a kinda big table and 5 or 6 chairs, a cupboard and some wooden boxes.
And this part of the room is a prison, half of which is partitioned by a solid wooden grid…
It only has a small table and a chair.

Inside the room, in addition to us, the prisoners, there’s a guard that’s around 20 years old is sitting alone on the chair to keep watch.

But before that…

 

『Uoo …』(Loli)

 

Well, she might have been handled roughly when she was caught.

A loli around 5 to 6 years old, who seems to be the youngest was moaning in pain while putting her hand on the left shoulder from a while ago.

No, a cute loli.

I can’t let such a cute loli suffer without doing anything!
No, even if it was a young boy, I will still treat him. It’s true!

Well, for the time being …

 

『Kya!』(Loli)

 

I put my right hand on the loli’s left shoulder where she seems to be in pain
… and generating a healing potion in my palm.
Meanwhile, my left hand was pointing towards the man sitting outside the cage.

 

『Pain pain, fly away!』(Kaoru)

『Gy~a!』(Man)

 

And then the man stood up screaming.

 

『Fly away!』(Kaoru)

『Gy~a!』(Man)

『Fly away!』(Kaoru)

『Gy~a!』(Man)

 

The man that stood up from the chair, he looked at me with his bloodshot eyes and yelled.

 

『You brat, what did you do?』(Man)

 

Fufufu, he was surprised, he was surprised.
I just made and spread a few drugs on his body that strongly stimulate pain sensation.

 

『Eh?
No, I did nothing.
Because this child seems to be in pain, so I stroke her,
I just say a magic spell to distract her.
Look, like this.
Pain pain, fly away!』(Kaoru)

『Guha~a! Stop, stop it right there, or I’ll make you stop …』(Man)

 

While saying that, the man held the handle of his sword.
And I gently smiled at him.

 

『Huh? Is that okay?
Well, I have other spells like 《sword’s tip, sword’s tip, fly away!》…
However, if I cast that curse, there might be people who got stabbed by the sword’s tip …』(Kaoru)

『Gy~~~~~~~ gyaaaaaaaa』(Man)

 

Ah, he ran away.

 

『There’s no pain…』(Loli)

 

The girl looked up at my face with a blank face and changed to a smiling face.
Yes yes, a smile is the best for such a cute loli like this, isn’t it?

 

『What’s going on!?』(Leader)

 

A man who seemed to be the leader of these kidnappers opened the door.
He isn’t from the four who kidnapped me.
He is around 30 years old, an average person with a relatively serious look.

Well, even in yakuza and organized crime groups,
the bottom end members look rough and stingy,
but the upper echelons might look average at first glance.

Well, that’s right. “I don’t point the gun at my wife’s guy friends,
I don’t cut my daughter’s guy friends’ fingers
I don’t look like gangsters at all”

However, his eyes’ perception is sharp
… Stop talking about the eyes.
Well, I don’t want to be told so as well

 

Only the leader came into this room.
It seems that the guard just now, said that he was so scared and did not followed.

 

『Eh?
No, nothing.
The guard keeper was just sleeping just now,
Suddenly, he waked up like having a nightmare,
and then he jumped out of the room…』(Kaoru)

Don't come here 1.jpg

I grasped both hands lightly and fitted it in front of my mouth as I tried to say so.
This is so-called
Scared captured daughter’s pose.
I always wanted to try it once.

Don't come here.jpg

Of course, I won’t do this when an acquaintance is near.
Otherwise, they will feel creepy or laugh.
《It doesn’t suit you》or《It is creepy》
…Shut up! (Urusai wa!)

 

『Damn, that idiot, sleeping on duty and all …』(Leader)

 

That being said, the leader left the room again.
Yeah yeah, do it in the other room, don’t be so selfish.

 

『 Is there anyone else that’s hurt?』(Kaoru)

 

The two lolies who were still comfortably fitted in my arms shook their heads.

 

『Do not worry it’s okay, because help will be coming soon』(Kaoru)

『… help?』(Loli)

 

A cute loli about 10 years old asked while looking up at me.

 

『Well, well, let’s wait at ease, until then.
Oh, would you like to play some games?
It’s easy to play, so you’ll understand immediately!』(Kaoru)

 

If I wanted, it would be easy to escape or call for help.
Like using an explosion to attack those kidnappers. But it’s hard to control so I might cause damage to the surrounding as well.

I could also make an explosion like in the war before, a golden cloud pillar, Roland and Francette will soon notice.
But it’s still too early to do it.
Because the mastermind has not appeared yet.

 

(Beautiful young girl) Bishoujo kidnappers …
I will not remove the character of 《Bishoujo》 here, and I don’t accept any objection.
Anyhow, I don’t think that those《Bishoujo Kidnapper》are only the 5 young men here.

If you think about it carefully, those 5 may have kidnapped the girls,
but how could they transport the kidnapped girls outside of this castle town?
There wouldn’t be any idiot who dared to buy kidnapped girls from the same town.
Perhaps they have company.
They might be a merchant, a powerful person, a criminal organization,…
That is a staple background in a historical drama.
There is no doubt!

  2. And now, is it Argento vampear or Kaoru manga? “Pain, pain, fly away” Arge-chan’s healing spell.

    Now we know why Kaoru didn’t finish kidnapper at sight. It is to draw herself to the mastermind.

    • It’s general way of “saying bs” to distract young children from feeling pain. “Magic spell” called placebo effect. Even if you are saying that as a joke, i don’t think that you should use such common thing for comparison.
      Almost as if i say that both characters “eat food”, so they are probably the same.

      • My bad, and yes, it is a joke. I also just want to promote “vampire’s nap novel” Argento vampear, which at this website imoutosite.wordpress 🙂

  3. Grammar and writing suggestions:

    『Ah, no, Kaoru-sama …, I mean Kaoru didn’t reply no matter how hard we knock…』- “no matter how hard we knock” > “no matter how hard we knocked”

    Emil was hurriedly corrected himself because calling Kaoru with ‘-sama’ is prohibited, although the person herself wasn’t here. > “hurriedly corrected himself” > “hurriedly correcting himself”; “is prohibited” > “was prohibited”; “wasn’t here” > “wasn’t there”

    Or has she went down to the first floor and have already eaten? – “have already eaten? well, … let’s get down, for now, 』” > “already eaten?”; capitalize the “w” in “well”; “let’s get down, for now,” > “lets go down, for now.” Take note to change the comma to a period to end that last clause.

    The three others follow Roland and went to the stairs because they don’t have the key, they can’t suddenly break the door and enter. – Once again, some tense problems. “Follow Roland and went to the stairs” > “Followed Roland and went down the stairs”; “don’t have the key” > “didn’t have the key”; “door and enter” > “break the door and enter either”

    When Roland got off to the first floor, he asked the innkeeper and the receptionist lady immediately responded. – Is the innkeeper and receptionist lady the same person? If they are, then choose either innkeeper or receptionist lady for the first clause and a pronoun for the second clause. If they aren’t the same, you can just ignore it, but then it’s kinda strange how he asked the innkeeper but the receptionist replied instead.

    Even if she went out for a walk, she definitely would return by dinner time. – “she definitely would return” > “she would definitely return”

    The female team also followed the men’s team and jumped out of the inn. – Jumping doesn’t seem like the right verb, maybe saying they dashed out of the inn, or rushed out of the inn?

    This place seems to be a hidden room in the basement of one of the city’s slum house. – “city’s slum house” doesn’t flow well and has some grammatical errors. Suggestion: “a hidden room in the basement of a house located in the city slums.

    Only by one person. – I’m guessing this means that she celebrates her birthday every year all by herself, in which case I would change this to “All by myself.”

    This basement hidden room is small but divided into 2 rooms, a kinda big table and 5 or 6 chairs, a cupboard and some wooden boxes. – Doesn’t flow well. The word “basement” here can be deleted. A room divided into two rooms doesn’t really make sense, maybe two parts or partitions? The “and” that is between the table and the chairs should be substituted with a comma as an and should only come with the last item of a list.

    Inside the room, in addition to us, the prisoners, a guard that’s around 20 years old is sitting alone on the chair to keep watch. – “a guard” > “there’s a guard”

    I just made and spread a few drugs on his body that strongly stimulate pain sensation. – “strongly stimulate pain sensation” doesn’t really work. Maybe “strongly stimulate pain receptors” or “simulates the sensation of pain”? Not sure what to replace this one with. I would reword it if I could but it risks a mistranslation.

    『Eh?
    No, I did nothing.
    Because this child seems to be in pain, so I stroke her,
    I just say a curse spell to distract her.
    Look, like this.
    Pain pain, fly away!』(Kaoru) – Awkward tenses. Curse spell doesn’t really seem right in this context, as it is supposed to be a healing spell of some sort, right? Why would it be a curse? Well, one way to fix the tenses would be: “Because this child seemed to be in pain, I stroked her, and I just said a curse spell to distract her.” Replace curse spell with a better word though; sounds pretty weird.

    A man who seems to be the leader of these kidnappers opened the door. – “seems to be” > “seemed to be”

    but the upper person might look average at first glance. – Change “upper person” to something more appropriate, like “upper echelons”, “higher-rung members”, “top brass”, etc etc.

    … Urusai wa! (Shut up!) – Redundant, just change this to “Shut up!”, or else it seems like a variant of keikaku means plan.

    • Actually for the “Emil was hurriedly corrected himself” part, just delete the “was” instead of changing it to “hurriedly correcting himself”.

  4. And she couldn’t just give herself super powers, why? Last chapter she was talking about how she went along with it because of the possiblity of getting hurt but she can change those “possibilities” at any time with a potion. If she said she was going along with it to get all perps involved then that’s a good excuse for why someone as OP as her could get kidnapped. But this setup, frankly, is just stupid the way it is now. Well, it makes her look stupid too being that she cant even figure out to make herself “sword proof” and “super strong”
