Someday, a Friend to call as My Lord
Title: Someday, a Friend to call as My Lord



One day, while the sun was still rising, [Player] woke up.

2 options
Un, it's a good morning. Nn~, I should be getting up now.

Looking at the clock, he saw that he still had time to sleep.

He would usually go to bed again, but somehow got up on a whim.

He got himself up and left the room. So that no one would notice, he hid the sounds he made.

The corridor was usually crowded with people, but at this time, it was unbelievably silent.

Someone's sleeping soundly. Someone's snoring. No one's moving an inch. It's a special time.

[Player] secretly went outside. Birds were chirping. Trees were rustling. The bells of bikes rang from a distance.

Along with the fresh clean air, these were peculiar things in the morning.


2 options
Today's gonna be a good day. Hmm? Someone's-
1 option
Who could it be, so early...
1 option
Quietly go see what it is?

He raised his voice a bit. With everything so silent, it will be heard clearly.

But even so,[Player] was feeling like he shouldn't.

More importantly, he felt like everything wanted to be tranquil.

The destination was the woods at the side of the dormitory. The sound of wind being cut entered his ear.

Moritaka expression angry.png

...

Also, someone was there.

Wearing a kendo uniform, in the middle of the woods' stillness was Inuzuka Shino Moritaka.

Moritaka expression angry.png

Sei!

Along with the sound of his shouting voice, his favorite bamboo sword swung with vigor.

With the momentum, droplets of his sweat danced in the air, glimmering under the sunlight passing between the leaves.

Then slowly, gently, he began swinging the bamboo sword again.

Moritaka expression angry.png

Sei!

Then he swung it again. And one more. And one more.

Moritaka expression angry.png

... Fuu-.

He repeats the swinging for about ten times. Moritaka then lets out a big puff of breath.

After all of his kendo work was done, he put his favorite bamboo sword in his bag.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Oh my, it's [Player]-dono. I didn't know you were up this early in the morning.

With his usual smiling face, he talked.


3 options
Good morning, Moritaka. Did I interrupt? Shake!
Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Good morning, [Player]-dono.
The weather feels great today.

Moritaka expression shocked.png

No, you never did such a thing.
Likewise, forgive me for getting surprised.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

An!

Moritaka expression sad.png

Ah! I did it again!
Even though I'm not a dog...


1 option
What were you doing alone this morning?
Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Oh, of course.
It was my early morning routine.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Wake up at sunrise, run along the riverbed, and then a hundred sword swings in the woods.

Moritaka expression sad.png

It was a routine I did back when I was a child, and I cannot calm down if I do not do it everyday.

One cannot afford to be lazy then, if one wishes to become a fine samurai as soon as possible.

2 options
S-So enthusiastic... Isn't that a bit too serious?
Moritaka expression angry.png

Absolutely not! I'm still far from the goal that I'm striving for.

Moritaka expression sad.png

However, because of my own selfishness,
I have been disturbing the sleep of everyone in the dormitory.

Moritaka expression sad.png

Before, I practiced in front of the dormitory entrance,
but I got warned by Chairman-dono.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Since then, I've been doing my training in the middle of the woods.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

The trees block the sounds, and the clean air is comfortable.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

If you wish to be loud without any hesitation,
I definitely recommend the woods, [Player]-dono.

3 options
Next time then. But you were warned... The forest, huh...
Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Oh, please do!
One's voice sounds different when it's full of fighting spirit!

Moritaka expression shocked.png

Even if I was warned...
Well, I did get scolded to an extent...

Moritaka expression sad.png

But I haven't been scolded since then!
Please don't misunderstand!

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Yes.
Even if you shouted out loud or ran around, you won't be a hindrance to anyone.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

I should return to the dormitory. I'll be taking a shower then prepare to head for school.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Let's have breakfast together so I can tell you what I do next.


Ryouta expression thinking.png

G'Morningh... so sleepy... Huh? There's something you don't see everyday.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Good morning, Ryouta-dono.

3 options
Morning, Ryouta. You got bed hair. Today's breakfast is grilled salmon.
Ryouta expression joy.png

Mm, Morning.
Have you guys already eaten?

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Yes, we have.
It was very delicious.

Ryouta expression thinking.png

Eh, it's good.
It'll return to normal eventually.

Moritaka expression sad.png

I'm so jealous.
I have to brush my fur every morning after sleep.

Ryouta expression joy.png

Grilled salmon sounds good.
Cooking rice in the morning's too much work.

Moritaka expression sad.png

Ryouta-dono, you have too much white rice again...

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Now then, since I still have morning practice, I shall go on ahead.

Ryouta expression thinking.png

Kendo practice, huh?
You always do that every morning.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

The way of the sword cannot be completed in a single day.
I must practice it every day.

Ryouta expression joy.png

Mmhmm. I don't know the way of the sword that much,
but it's good to keep doing something every day."

Ryouta expression thinking.png

I wonder if I have things to keep doing too.
Hmm, is there anything?

Ryouta expression thinking.png

The way of food cannot be completed in a single day!
How about that? That's something to continue doing.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Hahaha! Although it seems like that, it might ruin your body.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Today's physical education lesson is a marathon.
If you eat a lot, you won't be able to exercise.

Ryouta expression shocked.png

Eehhhh?!
We're having a marathon today?!

Ryouta expression thinking.png

Inuzuka, you're a dog beastman so you'll be fine.
I 'm not really that good at running.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Hahahaha!
That's why, you can have whatever you want at lunch.


3 options
Yo! Well, what an unusual pair. You're really working him hard, huh?
Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Ah, [Player]-dono. We've been seeing each other many times today.

Shirou expression neutral.png

Really? I don't think being together with your classmates is something unnatural."

Shirou expression neutral.png

D-Don't say stuff like that! I just needed a little bit of help, that's all.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Chairman-dono and I were borrowing equipment from the Audio-Visual room to be used for the next lesson.

Shirou expression neutral.png

I could do it myself, but by chance Moritaka was here and helped me.

Shirou expression neutral.png

Even if just a bit, I wish Kengo would be as considerate.

Kengo:(angry face)
And who's not considerate, huh?!"

Moritaka expression shocked.png

Ke, Kengo-dono?!

Shirou expression neutral.png

... I mean what I said.
And that's putting it lightly.

Kengo expression surprised.png

Putting it light-
Calling me inconsiderate when you're just as much.

Shirou:(angry face)
So what? Are you gonna help or not?

Kengo:(angry face)
Of course not! I'm here for Moritaka!

Moritaka expression shocked.png

M-Me? But please, don't fight here.

Kengo expression neutral.png

Don't we have joint practice this week? There's an advanced meeting so they had me call you.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Is that right? I understand. As soon as I'm done with helpin-

Kengo:(angry face)
Shirou can do that all by himself. Break time's over already."

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Then, Kengo-dono. May I have a request?

Kengo:(angry face)
No! Leave that to Shirou!

Shirou:(angry face)
This guy is really...!

Moritaka expression neutral.png

This equipment, even though it looks light it is quite heavy. Chairman-dono might gravely hurt himself carrying it alone.

Moritaka expression sad.png

So that this Inuzuka could show up properly, would you please accept?

Kengo expression embarrassed.png

Alright, alright. Gimme that.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

I offer my gratitude.

3 options
That was brilliant. That went smoothly. You're quite the schemer, Moritaka!
Moritaka expression neutral.png

Don't tease me, please.
It's just that they get into fights so often, they should get along for now.

Moritaka expression shocked.png

S-Schemer?! That's too much!

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Fighting like that is also a part of their relationship. Let's be like that too.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

To tell the truth, I am quite jealous of them.


Moritaka expression shocked.png

Wha-!!

Ryouta:(surprised face)
Huh! What's going on?!
Shouting all of a sudden...

Moritaka expression shocked.png

The lunch I prepared, it seems I have forgotten it in the dormitory...

3 options
Want to have half of mine? Wanna buy something from the store? Wait.
Moritaka expression sad.png

I can't do that!
That would be bothersome for [Player]-dono!

Moritaka expression angry.png

The school store is a battleground at this hour!

Moritaka expression sad.png

I appreciate your concern, but it's futile to go there now.

Moritaka expression sad.png

Kuu... Does this Moritaka have no choice left but to bear this shame?

Chouji expression neutral.png

Ah, there you are.
Inuzuka-kun, your lunch, you left it in the dorms, right?

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

I owe you, Chouji-dono!
With this, I won't have to starve this afternoon.

Ryouta expression thinking.png

It's obvious the lunch was Inuzuka's, Chouji.

Chouji expression neutral.png

Well, no one else but Inuzuka-kun wraps rice balls in bamboo leaves.

While his tail swung, Moritaka cheerfully held on to his bamboo leaf-wrapped rice balls.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Now then, Itadakimasu!

With that said, Moritaka took a big bite of his rice ball, stuffing his cheeks.


Moritaka expression shocked.png

[Player]-dono...?

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Fate has been making us meet by chance a lot today, it seems...

Moritaka expression neutral.png

This Moritaka who has formed a summoning contract with you... there is one thing I ask.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Right now, all of the members of the kendo hall are gone. Only I remain.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Please, go in.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Do you remember? What happened at the Ikebukuro guild?"

3 options
Back then...? When we became friends? You said you wanted to have a match?
Moritaka expression sad.png

You don't remember?
I asked to have a match with you.

Moritaka expression sad.png

Well, I did say that.
And we are already friends...

Moritaka expression shocked.png

No no, that's not it.
Back then, I asked to have a match with you.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

You remembered! That's amazing, [Player]-dono.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

I came from a world called 'Wa no kuni'
and came to this world as a 'Tenkousei'.

Moritaka expression sad.png

The difference between that world and this...
In that world, matters of life and death happened everyday.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

I studied the history of this world at the library.
It seems that my hometown was similar to this world's past.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

As for the other differences, those that are not human existed in my world.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

When asked if I was happy, I answered that while my parents and Yoshiro were still there.

Moritaka expression angry.png

I said, 'To my last breath.'

1 option
That time?
Moritaka expression neutral.png

Forgive me, my summoner.
Let's not stray from the matter at hand.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

To get to know someone of this world,
that wasn't something that I had put importance in.

Moritaka expression sad.png

But to me who didn't know a thing, everyone treated me so kindly..."

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

I wanted... to protect them. I wanted to straighten up my weak former self!

Moritaka expression angry.png

Not only for my immature self, but for Yoshiro who passed on before me.

"And more importantly,
for Father and his last words when he gave this sword to me."

As he said that, Moritaka took out the his favorite sheath bag.
The one he always carried on his back.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Let me show you again. This is Inuzuka Shino Moritaka's Sacred Treasure.

Along with the "App"'s launch, a sword embodies itself onto Moritaka's hand.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Whoever can avoid all the beads of this ice sword,
even from just one swing of it, is an admirable being.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

This is what Father last said to me.
'This is a sword you shall devote to the lord you will serve.'

Moritaka expression neutral.png

As soon as I can,
I must become a samurai who will dedicate this sword to my lord.

Moritaka expression sad.png

[Player]-dono, my summoner.
During that fight in Ikebukuro, I was sure of it.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

There was honor in that fight.
There was pride in that sword.

Moritaka expression angry.png

You are a person who can be my lord.

Moritaka expression sad.png

However, whether or not to serve [Player]-dono,
that is still something I am unsure of.


Moritaka expression sad.png

Because of my own inexperience,
I have only been able to meet and understand people through the sword.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Truly, I pray, please have a match with me, [Player]-dono.

Moritaka expression angry.png

Whether or not you are suitable to be my lord,
please let this Inuzuka Shino Moritaka judge.

1 option
Draw your sword.
Moritaka expression cheerful.png

This will hurt!

Moritaka expression angry.png

Now, let the match begin! [Player]-dono!


(Battle)


Moritaka expression angry.png

Nuooh!

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

This swordmanship.
I have not mistaken at that battle in Ikebukuro!

Moritaka readies his sword as his opponent stared motionlessly.

Moritaka expression angry.png

And that resilience too...
This is the last!

Moritaka expression angry.png

The true power of this Inuzuka Shino Moritaka's sword,
receive it with all your might!

His sword gleams, and a cold air begins to form around him.
Because of the sudden change in temperature, it started to get misty.

Moritaka expression angry.png

Mother, lend me your strength!

Moritaka expression angry.png

Devourer of demons, Frozen Ice Sword!


Moritaka expression cheerful.png

And the kendo hall is locked.
Sorry to have kept you waiting.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Let's go home.
Around this time, it's dinnertime in the dormitory, isn't it?

It was dusk and the sun was setting.
On the way back to the dormitory, the two walked side by side.

Slowly, easily, they walked.
As if they don't even want to return yet.

Moritaka expression sad.png

After all that, I never reached a conclusion.

Moritaka expression sad.png

And I have been too idle today.
What excuse would I have to my parents in the other world?

Moritaka expression neutral.png

I must fulfill their wishes as soon as I can.
Tomorrow, tomorrow for sure-

3 options
Come now, Moritaka. Honestly, you're so impatient. You don't need to settle things so soon.
Moritaka expression shocked.png

Huh?

Moritaka expression angry.png

Impatient?
I'm being impatient?

Moritaka expression sad.png

... Still, I swore to Yoshiro...

3 options
You don't need to rush for the answer. Let's go at it step by step. I'll be with you.
Moritaka expression shocked.png

... [Player]-dono.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Yes, that's right!
It shouldn't be forced.

Moritaka expression sad.png

Thank you, [Player]-dono.
Once again, I have noticed my immaturity.

Staring at his right hand, Moritaka thinks.
"I only realized my own feelings when it had been told to me."

"Why was I rushing for an answer?
Why did I let my feelings get the better of me?"

Moritaka expression sad.png

I was rushing because of my own feelings.
Even though Yoshiro and I had already parted.

Moritaka expression sad.png

I still need more training.
It was arrogant of me to think that I can already seek a lord.

Moritaka expression angry.png

With this much shamelessness,
Father, Mother, and even everyone would laugh at me.

Moritaka expression sad.png

A samurai who can devote his sword to his lord...
I am still far from it.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

But, please wait until I have the confidence to say it myself.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

As 'friends who want to protect everyone',
I want us to grow together, learn together, and walk together.

Moritaka expression shocked.png

T-That... is very selfish of me to think of...

Moritaka expression angry.png

Should we both walk together?
Even if you will not be my future lord?

Moritaka expression shocked.png

If it's [Player]-dono...
No, no, that's wrong!

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

I think, it would be good for us to walk together,
[Player]-dono.

Moritaka expression shocked.png

Huh? What am I saying?!

Moritaka expression shocked.png

P-Please forget what I said.
I am no longer making sense here.

3 options
Thanks. If Moritaka wants to. Good dog, Moritaka!
Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Likewise.
Even if I am still inexperienced, thank you for the consideration.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

Is that so?
With my selfishness... I thank you.

Moritaka expression cheerful.png

An!

Moritaka expression sad.png

I did it again?!
Well, calling me a 'good dog' isn't exactly right...

Moritaka expression shocked.png

No, that isn't so...
But if it is true, I would like to be next to you!

Moritaka expression neutral.png

Well then, let's go back home.
We're having Hamburg Steak for dinner.

Moritaka expression neutral.png

I'm really looking forward to Chouji-dono's Hamburg Steak!

Moritaka reaches out his hand.
[Player] holds on.

On the school road, the two start running,
all the while reminding themselves of the dream they want to fulfill someday.

(END)
