Promise of the Future
While Dirk and I were simply awkward, I decided to finish one more errand. Now that Shushu-san was away from Kanata-san, it was the time.
“Shushu-san, there is something I would like to do before returning.”
“Hm? Anything for you, Rosarin-chan.”
“… I hope you don’t find me too meddlesome. I’d like to meet with your father.”
“… With my father? I don’t really mind.”
Shushu-san smiled serenely. Shushu-san yo, you don’t know why I want to meet your father, do you? Oh, well.
Dirk, on the other hand, understood my intentions and took on a reproachful tone.
“I am who I am. I will do as I please.”
“… I know. I will protect you. Let’s piss him off together.”
“… Dirk, I love you! The matter of my righty can be finally put to rest!”
“Righty?………!! T, thank you very much…”
The curious Shushu-san took us to her residence. She said that her father was undergoing medical treatment, so Shushu-san was working as a Duke in his stead.
“Father, how do you feel?”
“Hmph, Shushu? I won’t acknowledge your marriage if that’s what you are here for.”
“… That’s not it today. You have a visitor. My Lord wanted to greet you. Look how cute My Lord is.”
Shushu-san was fully boasting. W, well, sure.
“How do you do? I’m Rosarin Rosenberg.”
“I’m sick so excuse me for greeting you from bed. The name’s Oscar Void.”
I was in turmoil because I didn’t know Oscar-sama would be hiding in a place like this.
“E, excuse me. It’s jsut… well, I know of a blonde beauty of the same name, so I was just a bit shaken.”
The three of them looked at me with delicate expressions.
“Well, that would certainly be surprising. Sorry for being an old man.”
No, it’s not your fault, Shushu-san’s father. He smiled and winked at us, clearly more mischievous than I thought. Handsome Uncle..! Oh no! He’s so cool! I don’t prefer blondes, but this is the first time I’ve seen one, an uncle at that, winking at me! As expected of Shushu-san’s father, he looks just like her. He’s an androgynous hunk!
“Well then, what are you here for? Princess of the Roses?”
Ah, he cooled down. Everyone loves to give me weird nicknames that it makes me feel like a chuuni!
“I will get straight to the point. You don’t intend to agree to anyone except Leon-san… the Golden Lion, as Shushu-san’s marriage partner, right?”
“… What about it?”
“I have no intention of using you as living sacrifices. I forbid the sacrifice of the Magic Leopard clan as well.”
“I have found another way to reduce the power of the Evil. I will make sacrifice unnecessary forever. So, I beg you. Please bless Shushu-san with happiness.”
“… Are you for real?”
“Yes. You can inquire from the royal family as well.”
“……………… I see.”
Shushu-san’s father quietly wept. The reason he didn’t approve of the marriage, even though he knew they were a couple, was to keep the Golden Lion tribe alive. It was for the sake of Wolfanea. If that was true, he would have liked to approve Shushu-san marriage, but considering the mission of the family, he couldn’t do it.
That’s why I thought that no matter how hard Kanata-san tried, it would be impossible unless we solved the root of the problem. That’s what I thought. I’m sure he’ll be angry with me. But I don’t regret it. It’s more important for Shushu-san to be happy.
By the way, as a side note, Beastmen who are aware of their pair mate will not go into heat with anyone other than them. However, there is an exception to this rule. It is said that if a special aphrodisiac is used, it is possible to make a baby.
“Shushulina… I will recognize your marriage. I wish you find happiness.”
“Yes! Thank you, Father!”
Shushu-san hugged her father tightly. She had a big smile on her face.
“Hey, you are not a kid anymore, stop it.”
Although he said that, Shushu-san’s father seemed happy. I met Dirk’s eyes and we left the room.
“You seem happy, Rosarin.”
“Yeah. I’m glad it worked out well.”
“I love that about you very much.”
He loves that? What is that? Don’t just say that out of the blue! You hunk! I also love you! I was so confused that I couldn’t say anything.
