Chapter 279: Worry
Get a hold of yourself
Text: Still quiet in the Sumimura household at dawn, and Masamori reprimands Yoshimori.
I told you to get some rest, didn’t I?
I understand that you’re worried about Hiura-kun, but
Staying here won't change anything.
As for the old man,
He said he'll sleep the whole day.
From what Sen said, he probably used up a lot of his powers yesterday but…
The one with the soul reservoir,
Can hand his power to the chosen one.
Karasumori's power... is it?
You didn’t eat much dinner yesterday, please come and have some breakfast.
Take a seat.
You’re just acting like a spoilt brat.
You're caught up in your own worries,
But can you just ignore those of other people?
Eat your breakfast,
Then get some rest and go to school.
He’ll be alright, for sure…
Souji-kun’s treatment is not over yet…
Someone caught up in their own worries…
For making you worry again.
I’m always doing the same thing.
Yesterday, once again…
I made you cry.
I've always been the one to cry...
I’m really sorry.
What are you saying?
Aah, she’s overdoing it---
What am I doing?
Even though I tried my best in the mind training,
I still end up hurting Tokine…
I’m going to be fine too.
I’ll never do anything that will make you cry again.
Please don’t worry about me.
Have you heard?
About the incident last night?
I saw it! The sky lit up real bright!
Was it really from the school?
I don’t know--- I was already asleep.
It might have been a big UFO which landed on the school grounds..
You’re kidding me.
My father said that he saw something like a dragon flying in the sky.
You can’t really believe what that drunkard said!
But this school is somewhat strange.
Did something really happened here last night?
No matter what happened…
There’s nothing to worry about…
I’ll protect you from anything.
Eh, Sumimura-kun’s mood seems to have changed?!
Come over here for a minute.
Why, you’re unexpectedly composed.
Should I be worrying about him?
I will go into the blank state without summoning Shiguma.
So, that’s what it is..
It’s that simple…
It was because I couldn't stabilize the power that I made trouble for everyone…
I still don’t understand why we need the blank state.
I ended up engulfed in Karasumori’s powers just like yesterday.
I thought so--this is what’s bothering him…
Did you remember it?
Yes, this time I was actually conscious.
Although I can’t describe it, I felt it for real…
Karasumori’s powers are…
If I don’t handle it properly,
Things could turn really bad.
Kikusui, Head of the Yagyou Relief Squad.
After this, he’ll regain consciousness, nothing to worry about?
I can’t say for sure.
He did lose a lot of blood and his head was badly injured, we could not fully heal him.
But he should be able to regain consciousness in a while.
The kid was cut through to his back, but
His internal organs were totally unhurt.
It’s like he can hold himself together.
He’s not a half-ayakashi, is he?
Even the dead can be brought back to life…!
Could that be a function of Yoshimori’s kekkai...?
No matter how, I’m just thankful that he’s saved.
If he wakes up,
He might give quite some information.
Anyway, thank you for your hard work.
Please rest yourself.
Chief, you should take a rest too.
You look tired.
There’ll be an executive meeting tonight.
I should regain my strength.
Urakai High Executive Meeting, The Council of Twelve.
He said himself that he couldn’t be killed that easily…
Yes, of course he ended up dead.
It wasn't unexpected that he would get killed someday…
Who will be…
Isn’t it better to hear it from him?
It seems that he was by his side this time…
Enough of this useless chatter.
Just start the meeting.
We’re running out of time.
8 of us left.
Did you ask for me?
The contract with the Sousui,
Has been canceled.
It’s because of you,
Head of the Ougi Clan (Present), Ougi Nizou (82)
Before going to work,
Don’t fall asleep in the bathroom.
I will look after Hiura-kun.
But it’s better for father to take a bath first.
Well then, I'll call you when I get out.
