(Uuu, I completely lost track of Tenma-kun and Harukawa-kun de gozaru~)
(I was so scared of Kunugi-sensei that I ran away without thinking twice about what I was doing. I’m done for when he catches me de gozaru.)
(This might seriously be the end of the ninja association......)
(H- He’ll forgive me if I do the right thing and apologize, right? I don’t know what I’ll do if he doesn’t de gozaru~!)
(Even Kunugi-sensei isn’t that cruel. If I just explain that we were doing serious ninja training, maybe......)
|(Hm? Isn’t that...... Kunugi-sensei!? No, wait! I’m not ready yet de gozaru~!)
(Uhhh, for now, I have to hide de gozaru! There has to be something around here...... The fountain!)
|......Hm. I thought I saw Sengoku-kun, but I suppose I must have been seeing things.|
|(I- Is he gone? Thank goodness~...... No, I can’t let my guard down yet de gozaru! I have to be prepared for the worst.)
(Hm~m, it’d be nice if he’d let me slide with just a reflection essay de gozaru.)
(I don’t think I can handle a lecture de gozaru. It’s impossible to stay awake and focused once he gets going de gozaru.)
(Still, I never would’ve thought aquatic escape no jutsu would come in handy like this de gozaru.)
(The fountain is part of Shinkai-dono’s domain, though~ He’ll probably be mad that I trespassed without consulting him first de gozaru.)
|*giggle* Are you here to “play” in the water too, Shinobu? It feels nice, doesn’t it~? “Water” is full of “life”......♪|
*cough* You scared me! I accidentally swallowed a whole mouthful of water de gozaru~
I can feel it sloshing around in my stomach... Ugh......
|Shinobu, are you okay? I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to startle you.|
|I’m fine. I’m sorry too for making a mess of myself like that. The fountain is your territory, so I shouldn’t have gotten in without asking you first anyways de gozaru.|
|Hmmm~ I don’t really think of it as my “territory”~......?
When I’m in the “fountain,” though, other people stay out of the water. Isn’t that “strange”?
|Not really. I think just about anyone’d hold off swimming while you’re there de gozaru. There’s something mysterious about you, after all.
Umm, I actually had a question for you, if you don’t mind...... Did you see Tenma-kun or Harukawa-kun come by here?
We got separated, so I’ve been trying to find them de gozaru.
|I haven’t seen them~ I did see “Sensei” though.
Now that I think about it, “Sensei” was calling your “name.” Shinobu, did you do something to get yourself in trouble?
If you did, you need to go tell him you’re “sorry,” okay~?
|I- I really shouldn’t keep running away, should I? Shinkai-dono, I swear to you that I won’t flee from him any longer de gozaru. Which way did he go?|
|You don’t need to vow to me. I think “Sensei” headed towards the first floor “passage.”
I was busy puka puka-ing in the “fountain” too, so I didn’t get a good look~
|No, don’t worry, that’s plenty enough information de gozaru! He might have been going through the passage on his way back to the staff room de gozaru. I’ll go try to catch up to him de gozaru~!|
|Shinobu, you shouldn’t run in the “halls”~
I think I’m going to stay here a little longer. The “water” is nice and cool.
