Arge Chapter 189: Promise, Once again
『Mu ……』 (Aoba)
『A…Aoba-san. As expected (Yappari), you were listening』(Arge)
I called out to Aoba-san, who entered the room where only silence remained without knocking.
Aoba-san looked at me with a curled face.
『 Did she return?』 (Aoba)
『I don’t think she returns but at least she will not come out』 (Arge)
It’s about Elsie-san, so it’s not strange if she monitors me from somewhere,
But for the time being, she disappeared.
At least she isn’t hostile and she will cooperate with me, so she won’t try to fight us unnecessarily.
She should not. Maybe? probably? I hope she won’t because it’s annoying.
『Honestly… what’s with that person?』 (Aoba)
『We have been through various things. She can be called a bad acquaintance.
But for the time being, she seems to have another purpose』 (Arge)
『…Only for now? Well, it’s okay, I guess』 (Aoba)
Aoba-san sighed and was approaching me.
She stretched her hand to my cheek. The feeling of being stroked is kind and I can see well that she was worried about me.
『I don’t want you to overdo it for others』 (Aoba)
『I’m not going to overdo it …』 (Arge)
『Liar. Ginshi-san has been doing so. You immediately pushed yourself in danger and even doing something impossible』 (Aoba)
『Aoba-San. Just now, you…』 (Arge)
『If you asked about that fox child, she went to Satsuki-san’s place. Because you woke up, she wanted to tell them so and also just in case she might call them for back up…
For now, when it’s only us, please let me call you Ginshi-san』 (Aoba)
When I saw Aoba-san’s face that seemed to cry, I no longer wanted to refuse.
After asking politely, Aoba-san hugged me.
Rather than jumping like Kuzuha-chan, Aoba-san gently pulled my body into her arms so that I can adjust the temperature.
(T.N: In case you forgot, Aoba is now a plant girl, her body heat is low/cold)
『… I was able to protect you this time』 (Aoba)
『… Eh? 』 (Arge)
『Back then in Kuon house, I couldn’t stop you from being locked up. I couldn’t rescue you. But this time… I was able to protect you』 (Aoba)
『Ah …』 (Arge)
Her words were trembling, her body temperature was cold, but the touch on my face was warm.
… Aoba-san was also.
Just as Kuzuha-chan regrets about her mother, Aoba-san must have regretted about me.
Even if it was the intention of the Kuon house and something that she couldn’t stop, it would have been hard for Aoba-san.
Because it was so hard on her when she knew I was gone, she cut off her life.
At that time, when I jumped out to protect Elsie-san, both Aoba-san and Kuzuha-chan came to assist me right away because they both still have their regret.
『Promise… promise me that this time you will never go away…』 (Aoba)
『…Promise, right?』 (Arge)
For me, who once missed our promise to view flowers in our last life,
Aoba tried to make a promise again.
Can I keep the promise this time? I don’t have any confidence but I don’t want to die twice.
『……I understand. I promise』(Arge)
I don’t know if I can keep it but I wanted to respond to her flowed tears.
Even I don’t even understand my own heart, I know the meaning of her tears. It’s spilled because it’s full of emotions.
I want to pinch our little finger, I can understand the warmth of my feelings.
『Absolutely… It’s our absolute promise, understand?』 (Aoba)
『…Yes, it’s a promise』 (Arge)
『When it ’s all over, let’s live in my forest. Okay? 』 (Aoba)
『… I’m looking forward to it』 (Arge)
I whispered my answer to Aoba-san, who talked to me without wiping her tears.
Could you not let this person cry again this time?
I still don’t know the answer.
