…Is this your answer to me? Now how will I respond to that… Heheh, you’re so dense, Commander. I’m no longer the same person I used to be: someone who couldn’t take anything seriously. Did you forget who it was that changed me? If meeting you was destiny’s work, then I should really thank fate…Should I look forward to the future as well? Commander, did you look at other girls on your way here~? In Metalblood, people use animals like bear cubs or little rabbits as terms of endearment. Would you like me to call you bear cub or little rabbit, Commander? Hm, I suddenly feel so lethargic, only a kiss from Commander can wake me up… Don’t spend all of your time working~Otherwise I’ll get tired of waiting alone and come over to disturb you. I feel so blessed right now——Why? Why do YOU think so~? M~y l~o~v~e? Commander, I know what you want to do, but work is still more important! Tasks…As long as you’re the one assigning them, I can do anything! So much mail…You really are popular eh, Commander? Commander, I’ve drawn the bath, who goes first? Or…? Although the light is something that should be equally shared by all, I don’t mind giving a little more to you, Commander. Hehe, after all, I’ve received something important from you~ Beyond the sorrow lies a place of joy filled with the light of love and hope. May these feelings be with you through all eternity… Good day to you, Commander. Did you have a good rest? Commander, no matter where you’re headed, I will always be by your side. Will there ever be true peace on these seas, I wonder… Commander, my heart is beating so fast right now. Can you… feel it? You will always be the most important person to me, Commander♡ If there’s something you wish to tell me, whisper it into ears. (Giggle) This kind of intimacy is… welcomed from time to time~ Are you tired? Please rest awhile. You’d like a lap pillow? Jeez, what a hopeless commander you are♪ Come here♡ I’ve waited impatiently for this day to come. From now on, nobody, no matter who they are, can separate us. My all belongs to you and your all belongs to me… Aha-ahaha-ahahahahahaha… I need to send out more invitations… It’s more efficient to get rid of pests all at once~ Where is this other woman’s smell coming from, Commander? I see, so it’s her… …Now I know… Please stay with me forever and ever. You cannot under any circumstances whatsoever leave me… It would be so nice if the only people left in this world were me and you, Commander… You don’t need to put up any futile resistance, Commander. I specifically made these chains just for you~ Isn’t it just human nature to want to have total control over the things you like? Are you hungry, Commander? I will make some food for you right away~ And don’t try to run away… Are you unable to control yourself anymore, Commander? Neither can I… So long as I can be with you I couldn’t care less about the mission~… Isn’t that right, Commander…? You want to be with me as much as possible… Of course I understand that~ However, I advise you to carry out missions from time to time, so as not to arouse suspicion from your superiors. There’s a letter for you… It seems our superiors haven’t noticed a thing… Commander, would you like some tea I brewed~? Yes, of course I’ve added a “secret ingredient” that will help us love each other more. Are you awake? Hm? I wasn’t doing anything, I was just putting a lock on this chain so that we can be together forever. It seems those meddling worms are back… Commander, I will be taking my leave for a bit. Ehehe. You aren’t being honest. Here, receive my sweet blood, and prepare yourself to accept the blessing of Eloi. Darling♪ Where are we going to have a date today? We’re finally alone♪ Darling♪ I’m tired from cleaning…… Hm, I wonder if it’s fine if I rest for a while… So bored…… Hey darling, why don’t we go on a date? Do you want to know the color of the panties I’m wearing today?, Come on〜 even though you always help me get dressed〜 Are you loving me more and more? Seriously ♡ What are you doing? Don’t you think I’m more important than the tasks? Task complete! Now let’s go on a date next♪ Do you want the mail? Theeen, I’ll exchange it for a lovey dovey love letter to me♪ Darling, are those the souvenirs? Let me guess for a bit〜 Is it wine?, or maybe chocolate? I’ll never get tired of spending time together♪ Hey, once you finish bathing, can we chat for a while? Darling♪ Let’s go welcome the girls that just returned♪ Bring it on! Let’s cheer for our love! Offer flowers and salutes for our love! If beyond this war is not a light that devours all, but your warm embrace, then from now on… I will desire nothing more. A-as incompetent and foolish as I am, I hope I will make a good bride… Is that good enough? T-this is… rather embarrassing… H-hahaha… Only people like you have the courage to keep me waiting this long. Not even I can help but laugh from the bottom of my heart when I am here… I like this place! I shall fight! For now I know precisely what I should fight for! I still vividly remember the warmth of your hand from the time when you freed me of my rigging. Who knows what the future has in store for us… For the first time since I was born, I wish to know. Never before have I experienced this happiness I feel when you touch me like this… Eek… Y-you must not do that here… I put the documents in order so you may be able to read them easily. My little wolves brought your letter. Heheh, you seem to have really caught their interest. Having a person I love like this makes me quite happy… H-heheh… I am Nagato. But I do not only belong to the Sakura Empire, I also belong to you. You reached your hand out to me when I was alone, and for this I want to always stay beside you. Surely you have no objections to this… right? The commission has been completed. Are you not going to meet them at the port? For the sake of our future! Haha, if you are this nervous then you cannot convey your feelings to a lady, Commander. However, because it is you, your feelings have reached my heart… and Hood will gladly accept them. I carry with me the uncountable hopes and wills of the countless battlefields and goodbyes that I have experienced. Commander, are you prepared to shoulder them all? …I see. Then let us walk together until the end of our lives. How, how is it? Does it look weird… No, it’s not like I hate it. There’s no one who doesn’t look forward to wearing this, it’s just that… No matter how brutal the battles, no matter how painful the goodbyes, I will be able to keep walking down this path full of hope, as long as you are with me. Do you want to try my cooking tonight? Vestal said that I have mastered all that she has to offer… I am not someone who is only useful on the battlefield. Because of you, I believe that eventually a day will come where there is no more conflicts, and everyone will be truly happy. Hum, this child seems to have taken a liking to you. This is slightly troubling…. I would have been satisfied with always attending to you and sometimes seeing you troubled, master, but… when you make such a big vow to me, it makes me want to serve you even more and long for more of your affection… Thank you very much. But you know, I finally understand now. What filled the hole in my heart wasn’t massacring enemies on the battlefield, nor was it love, it was the hatred of so called “jealousy”… Commander? Just as much as I love you, I hate, hate, HATE the other girls so much, you know…? I can’t stand them… ANY LONGER!
