To The Forest

I’m posting the chapters here for the time being.

―― Forest.

In general it can be said that, it’s  a place where a large amount of trees are growing en masse.

In Japan forest boasts about 70% of it’s territory(Tln: Shinrin), because of it’s mountainous topography to Japanese people the meaning of forest is equal to mountains where every kind of trees grow thickly, in many cases there are trees which thickly grows and create something like an umbrella resulting in dim lights in places, Japanese people tends to remember (a?) mountain.

Certainly that’s also a forest but, it may be said that there are inconsistencies to the forest said to be in the west.
Europe, from olden days it was a land only of forest. Forest wasn’t only on mountains, it was also on the plain grounds and hills, it was everywhere where people could live, it blocked off all types of connections/ relationships between people.

一The reason was because if one entered death will constantly be beside them. The forest was the living place of  terrifying beasts such as stray dogs, wolves, bears and tigers also the same type of trees which crowded together disturbed a person’s sense of direction.  At that time, the thought of crossing the forest, to the people who lived at that time was a very hard to imagine and a difficult thing to do.
The forest was also a place which gave people blessings, on the contrary there is no doubt that it became one of the factors which prevented the development of people.

So a forest is an unfamiliar thing to Japanese people. Thus these forest  are something where people get lost, feels inexpressible terror, otherwise if to remind a dense forest/jungle, it can only be correctly  thought of in ones imagination.*************

Suimei who left the business caravan and entered the forest to chase after Lefille, for quite a while was following the trace of her magic power, while walking.

While walking and searching for Lefille, Suimei looked up towards the cloudy sky which hard to come by in this umbrella like forest and thinks.

(A savage land. After all like wild beast, in a fantasy demons will appear like it is natural……)

一I only halt for a little while to take a break. I lean on the tree which is in front of me, gulp down the water which was in the  canteen, after drinking a mouthful I breath out exquisitely. Most likely the demons will appear without  a doubt. To say the degree of dangers,  the other world’s forest is much more dangerous than the forest from the world from the other side.

In  a sense it’s a wide area boundary fence which contains all sorts of danger, and prevents any sorts of domain erosion.

(I who on my own free will stepped foot in such a place, I’m such a……)

Is it praiseworthy, am I not just a fool? Even if I ask myself in my head, the doubt just keeps getting bigger. Meanwhile, before drinking water again, I ask myself again.

「――I’m sorry while you are bracing yourself,  but can you please forgive me by not cutting me? 」

I say to the nervous swordswomen who was preparing a sword slash from behind at that moment.  Speaking of that sharpness, were planning to cut trees and everything along with it in half? It was done (before?).
In that silent forest those flat words of Suimei echoed out, after a little while the sound of treading grass could be heard, and he heard the perplexed voice of a familiar person.

「……Suimei kun? Why are you here?」

「Well, it’s just as you see. I came chasing after you. 」

When I turn around, there I see the figure Lefille, standing there with the tip of her long sword pointing downwards. Because the presence was thin, she probably thought the one chasing after her was a beast and she was preparing to cut it down.
When I calmly state the truths, Lefille twists her face with a grim expression and asks.

「Came after ……? Foolish, if you stay with me it’s dangerous you know? For what reason? 」

「That’s because, it’s difficult for a single person. I was worried. 」

When Suimei said this, Lefille like a prim person closed her eyes in a cold manner and puts on air.***

「There  is no need to worry. Even if I’m alone I’ll be able to manage somehow or another. Your actions are, unnecessary meddling. 」

「Then you can handle the dangers all by yourself?」

「That’s right.」

This, what do you know, tsundere. However, bluntly speaking it is something which will collapse before long.
While thinking such things, a sarcastic smile appeared on Suimei’s face as he pointed out.

「Then I’ll ask something  bluntly, are those amounts of water and foods sufficient?」

「U……, that is, it’s……」

「Dont you agree?」

Lefille who is lost for words glance sideways embarrassed. When I demand an answer from such her, as if she suddenly thought of an objection, the expression where she puts on air revives again.

「Even you didn’t bring that much stuff with you? A person who doesn’t have much to feed oneself, doesn’t have the qualification to say such――」

「Even with this?」

After Suimei said that, it completely destroyed that serious and triumphant look, Suimei started to bring out luggage from the bag which were bigger than the bag those were in.

「The qualification……」

「What is it  about qualification? Is bringing in the acceptable amount of food unacceptable?」

In front of Suimei who said that with a boastful attitude, Lefille was blinking her eyes in surprise with a dumbfounded expression. This way there was nothing which can be said to be unacceptable.

However it’s a convenient and easy to use item which Suimei was proud of.

When such an mysterious thing happened in front of her eyes, Lefille while showing a surprised expression, asked with suspicion.

「……What is that strange magic tool?」

「You are saying it’s strange, it’s a awful way of saying. ……Well whatever, this way you can’t say it’s unnecessary meddling right? 」
