Love is Not Free

Ushiwakamaru: Yawn... Good morning Master! What's wrong?

Fujimaru 1: Where are we?

Ushiwakamaru: Now that you mention it... That is strange. Did the Rayshift fail?

Ushiwakamaru: Where are Mash and Fou?

Mash: Over here.

Fou: Fou!

Ushiwakamaru: Mash, Fou! I'm glad you're safe!

Ushiwakamaru: Are you hurt? If something happened to you, Master would be sad.

Fou: Nnn, kyu.

Mash: I'm fine.

Mash: ...It seems there was an accident during Rayshift. Please wait while I ask the Doctor to bring us back.

Dr. Roman: Sorry everybody. I don't know what happened, but I have your signals here.

Dr. Roman: There's no data on where you jumped, but it's spatially stable.

Dr. Roman: Give me a minute. Once the repairs are done, I'll bring you back.

Ushiwakamaru: Understood! Master, I'll go look and make sure there's no danger!

Mash: Actually, we should stick together. Is that all right with you, Master?

Fujimaru 1: No problem.

Fujimaru 2: Let's do that.

Ushiwakamaru: Okay!

Mash: Master, Ushiwakamaru, watch yourselves.

Ushiwakamaru: I-I'm fine... Hyaaah!

Ushiwakamaru: I-I'm sorry. Thank you! I was raised by the Kurama Tengu and I still slipped...

Ushiwakamaru: Still, this forest– It seems different than the one in my country.

Mash: That's right. From the look of that coast... Are we on a deserted island?

Ushiwakamaru: You're probably right, Mash. There's likely no land bridge.

Ushiwakamaru: If we're trapped here, should we chop some wood and make a raft?

Mash: If we can Rayshift back, we probably won't need a raft.

Ushiwakamaru: Too bad. I'm quite good at chopping wood–

Mash: What's wrong?

Ushiwakamaru: –Be quiet. I sense an evil presence.

Mash: ...Me too. Fou, be quiet.

Fou: Kyu.

Ushiwakamaru: ... S-Sorry.

Ushiwakamaru: Fou's so cute, I feel like my heart skipped a beat.

Ushiwakamaru: The presence–is starting to approach. Master, shall we launch a surprise attack?

Fujimaru 1: Let's do that.

Fujimaru 2: Got it.

Ushiwakamaru: Right, I'll go around the side. Mash, you intercept them.

Mash: Wow... Her "Presence Concealment" is Assassin level. Let's do this, Master stand back.

Mash: ...Here they come!

Ushiwakamaru: I trapped them! Let's go!


Ushiwakamaru: Whew! That was good exercise! By the way, can we eat them?

Mash: Probably not a good idea to eat the Lamia...

Ushiwakamaru: A shame. If you carefully drain them of blood, snakes can be quite delicious.

Ushiwakamaru: I used to eat them all the time during war.

Mash: I-I see...

Ushiwakamaru: This island is pretty small, huh? Doesn't look like there's much to see.

Ushiwakamaru: ...A bit of a shame, really.

Dr. Roman: Oh, hello? It's the Doctor. It's going to take me a little longer to adjust the Rayshift.

Dr. Roman: It's just refusing to stabilize...

Mash: Understood. ...I'm sorry. Looks like it will take a bit more time.

Ushiwakamaru: Anyway Master, I want to hear a story about you.

Fujimaru 1: About me?

Fujimaru 2: Why?

Ushiwakamaru: Is it strange to want to know about one's Master?

Fujimaru 1: I'm boring.

Fujimaru 2: I'm not interesting...

Ushiwakamaru: No, I want to learn about you, Master.

Ushiwakamaru: I might not be the best listener, but I'll try my hardest. So please, go ahead!

Ushiwakamaru: ...I see, I see. Thank you, Master!

Ushiwakamaru: ...Looks like the Rayshift's not ready yet. It's so quiet.

Ushiwakamaru: ...

Ushiwakamaru: Master, um... I have a question–

Ushiwakamaru: Am I useful to you?

Fujimaru 1: Of course.

Fujimaru 2: Obviously.

Ushiwakamaru: I see. Glad to hear it. I...I'm used to people telling me they don't understand me.

Ushiwakamaru: When I tell them I want to fight for someone else's sake, they all seem confused.

Ushiwakamaru: Is my reason that strange?

Ushiwakamaru: I fought for my brother's sake, but he never believed me, even until the end.

Ushiwakamaru: It's true that there were misunderstandings, but I never thought of hurting him even once–

Ushiwakamaru: I'm not angry. It's just strange to me. Why can't people understand how I feel?

Ushiwakamaru: I'm sorry. This isn't something I should be talking about with you.

Fujimaru 1: Don't worry about it.

Fujimaru 2: I want to hear more.

Ushiwakamaru: ...You're a lot like Ise Yoshimori, you know?

Ushiwakamaru: Oh, I don't mean that you look like him. He had a face like a wicked fox.

Ushiwakamaru: But he was easy to talk to. About serious things, or just joking around.

Ushiwakamaru: You have many Servants. But you take time to talk to them one-on-one–

Ushiwakamaru: It's a little embarrassing, but I'm very grateful.

Mash: Is it ready? Doctor? I think it's time for us to go back–

Dr. Roman: Oh, sorry. I have bad news.

Mash: ...Go ahead with the bad news, Dr. Roman.

Dr. Roman: Just so we're clear, this isn't my fault, okay?

Dr. Roman: Until you can stabilize that area, even if you try to return, you'll just end up somewhere else.

Dr. Roman: The cause of the instability circles around the island. Any ideas?

Mash: Around the island? Could it be–that ship?

Dr. Roman: I thought it might be a ship... Yeah. I'm picking up magical energy coming from it.

Dr. Roman: Can you go there and remove the source of the instability?

Ushiwakamaru: I think so. Let's jump aboard when it gets close.

Mash: A-At this distance?

Ushiwakamaru: Mash, I once jumped across eight ships. This is nothing.

Ushiwakamaru: ...I think it's about time. Mash, once I'm aboard I'll bring the ship close.

Mash: Understood.

Ushiwakamaru: Just watch me. Master, take this– "Dan-No-Ura Eight-Boat Leap!"–Here I go!

Mash: S-She jumped! She jumped over eight boats in length!

Ushiwakamaru: I did it! Okay guys, sorry! But I'm taking this boat to shore!

Ushiwakamaru: I promise I won't kill you–

Ushiwakamaru: I won't kill you– Oh, no! They're already dead!

Mash: U-Um, Ushiwakamaru seems to be having a hard time!

Fujimaru 1: Let's wait and believe.

Fujimaru 2: She'll be fine.

Ushiwakamaru: I'm getting this boat to shore– Tch, get out of my way!

Ushiwakamaru: Okay, got it! Mash! I'm turning the boat around!

Mash: It's getting closer. At this range I can do it too–!

Mash: Ushiwakamaru!

Ushiwakamaru: Oh, Mash! Sorry, it took me a while!

Mash: I see. It was a ghost ship!

Ushiwakamaru: U-Um, Mash?

Mash: Yes?

Ushiwakamaru: Was Master disappointed? It did take me a while...

Mash: ...Don't worry. Master believed in you.

Ushiwakamaru: I see! Okay, then nothing can stop me!

Ushiwakamaru: Come, you ghastly creatures! My name is Minamoto–No, Ushiwakamaru!

Ushiwakamaru: As a Servant of Fujimaru, I shall defeat you!


Ushiwakamaru: Yup, that's most of them. Master! Master!

Fujimaru 1: (Wave to her.)

Fujimaru 2: Good job!

Ushiwakamaru: Mash! Master praised me!

Mash: I'm so happy for you, Ushiwakamaru!

Ushiwakamaru: Right!

Dr. Roman: Hey guys, the readings from that ghost ship isn't totally gone.

Dr. Roman: If you don't hurry up, you won't be able to come home.

Ushiwakamaru: Huh? Really? But–

Mash: I don't see anything else...

Ushiwakamaru: A mist? Rising from the bodies?

Mash: I see, the vengeful spirit driving the ship was the source of the instability!

Ushiwakamaru: –Okay Mash, this time let's finish it.

Ushiwakamaru: Evil is destined to fall. Especially, wicked demons...

Ushiwakamaru: Your grudge shall be slain by me –Ushiwakamaru!


Ushiwakamaru: I defeated them!

Dr. Roman: Okay, you all can come home now. Let me know when you're ready.

Mash: Understood. Let's meet with Master first.

Ushiwakamaru: Master, I have slain the vengeful spirits!

Ushiwakamaru: It's a shame you couldn't see me since we were fighting on the decks...

Ushiwakamaru: But next time, I promise to fight somewhere you can see!

Ushiwakamaru: And um...well. If you wouldn't mind...

Ushiwakamaru: Oh, no... Never mind, I guess...

Fujimaru 1: What is it?

Ushiwakamaru: D-Do you think you could maybe pat me on the head? I'd really like that.

Fujimaru 1: Sure.

Ushiwakamaru: Thank you!
