Title: Chapter. 116
The Tale of Elizabeth the Faithful Dog
Elizabeth: My name is Elizabeth.
I am in the service of the son of the Nikaidou family, young master Harunobu.
My duties consist primarily of looking after the young master in his daily life......
In other words
SFX: CHICHCI... CHUN CHUN...
SFX: TICK TICK KYURURURU
Eli: I allow him to spend each day with total serenity.
SFX: GIGI...... KACHIH
SFX: JIRIH.... BESHIIH DANNN
Eli: The idea of a crude wake-up alarm staring by precious young master's day is preposterous!!
As long as I, Elizabeth, am still alive in this world, I will never allow such a thing!!
SFX: BEESHI BEEESHI EIH EIH
Eli: The start of one's day is of great importance.
In order for him to spend his day feeling comfortable,
I want him to slowly wake up naturally...
Eli: ----First I gently make my presence known from the side of the bed like this...
And then I use my nose to check to see if there are any changes in Harunobu-sama's physical condition like a fever.
SFX: FUSU FUSU... PSSPSS HN HN...
Eli: If he doesn't have a fever, then next...
Hey, that tickles, Elizabeth!
Eli: I then give him a massage with the fur on the side of my face.
SFX:HN HN SURI SURI (NUZZLE NUZZLE) GUI GUI
Nikai: Okay, I get it!
I'm up, I'm up!
Every day like this! What am I gonna do with you?!
Eli: Yes... I want to have Young Master Harunobu's precious, precious day
start like this, with a smile.
Eli: Harunobu-sama studies shogi all day long.
Those beautiful click-clack sounds echo constantly.
The form of him dedicating his body and mind to it
gave a sacred feel to the room.
Looking at Young Master's serious profile always gives me chills.
---And inspires me
to protect Harunobu-sama's quiet world at any cost.......
And I don't care if I have to sacrifice this mortal body to do it!!
Eli: ----So, they've come, have they...?!
The big dogs!!
Handwritten: HAH HAH
SFX: DAHH CHAH CHAH CHAH
Handwritten: HAH HAH
SFX: GIGIGIGI... GOGOGOGO
Eli: Harunobu-sama's elder brother (1) and elder brother (2) dogs!!
Their bodies may be large, but they are still children!! They're at an age where they're always bursting with energy!!
I can't believe they're back already. Did they already forget that just last month,
they got overzealous and ran Harunobu-sama ragged and made him catch a fever?!!
Okay, I'm gonna throw it one more tiiiime!!
HA HAF HAF
Elizabeth: Can't the two of you go out into the yard and play with a ball or something?!!
The young master is in the middle of studying!!
But we wanna play with Harunobu-sama, too!
SFX: BUNN BESHIHH
Eli: Whew... Honestly.
Dogs: Ohhhh, Elizabeth, why're you so bossy all the time?!!
You big dummyyyy
You're such a cheapskate, Elizabeeeth!!
We won't forget thiiiis!
Eli: They are so naive due to the fact that Young Master Harunobu is a kind soul that loves us dogs.
Interrupting his precious study time like that...
The young ones these days!! They have so little awareness of what serving the Nikaidou family means!!
Eli: ----But... the true threat right now is...
SFX: DAH DAH PETTAN PETTAN
Eli: The elder br
T/N: The "akago" part of the name literally means "baby".
Handwritten: Big Beo Haeunobuuuuu!
Where aaare yoooou?
Come pway wit meeeee!!!
SFX: PETTAN PETTAN
Elizabeth: Darn it, Elizabeth, what're you going to do...?
This is Harunobu-sama's precious, beloved nephew, Akagomaru-dono...
Handwritten: GYAH GYAH
Eli: But his stamina is endless...
You can be certain Harunobu-sama will end up laid up for a long time again!!
If this is what it's come to, then...!!
SFX: KIRA KIRA (SPARKLE SPARKLE)
Eli: KYAWAN! [Heart]
SFX: FUSSA FUSSAAAAAHHH KURU KURU KURU KURU (Wagging) TATATATATAH TATAAA
it's time for dinner.
SFX: KOH KOH....
Elizabeth, what's wrong?
Handwritten: Is she sleeping with her eyes open?
Guy: She must be tired.
She was running all over the yard with Chiyomaru-sama until just a little while ago.
Nikai: Oww, no matter how much time passes,
Elizabeth is always a kid I guess.
Nikai: I guess because I didn't have time to play with her much since it was right before a match, she played around with Chiyomaru until she wore herself out like this...
Handwritten: Are her forepaws starting to look like chicken wings?
SFX: KUNI KUNI... (SQUISH SQUISH) PERUN PERUN...
Handwritten: *So exhausted she can'e even move.
Nikai: Man, what a dumb look she has on her face when she sleeps.
Nikai: -----Aah... It's so soothing...
Just looking at you
makes a whole day's worth of fatigue just disappear!!
SFX: KUNI KUNI... (SQUISH SQUISH)
Nikai: Hey, Hanaoka...
Elizabeth is totally the most lovable dog in the whole world, isn't she?
Hana: Oh dear, the whole world?!!
Elizabeth is one lucky pooch!!
