“Died of illness?”
Zixing and Mo Xiaofei were still discussing the details of entering the dungeon of Nagato’s house. Naturally, they would inevitably discuss the true identity of the crazy woman trapped in the dungeon.
“They claimed so to the outside world, but that isn’t the reality.” Mo Xiaofei frowned, seeming to organize the chaotic memories, “But as for the reason, no matter how I tried this year, there was no way I could inquire about it. But, the only thing that can be confirmed is that the dungeon of Nagato’s house hides this crazy woman. Only Master Nagato, Shinji Nagato and Saburo Nagato know.”
Zixing curiously asked, “Why is Brother Mo so sure?”
Mo Xiaofei smiled bitterly, “In this year of the reincarnation loop, I have asked every Nagato family member directly in person, including the lowest-ranking people.”
Anyway, it was an infinite load game. After countless deaths, Mo Xiaofei admitted that he had mastered a lot of information, but he still could not break the current deadlock.
“Master Nagato and Shinji Nagato will not talk about it for the time being…” Zixing frowned, “So Saburo Nagato can actually tolerate his wife being locked up in the dungeon with no chance of seeing the sun.”
Mo Xiaofei said, “There is one thing strange about Chizuko Nagato.”
“Pen Immortal?” Zixing frowned. “In the movie…”
“I’m afraid that the world we live in now is deviated from the movie plot.” Mo Xiaofei shook his head, “We can only have the storyline as a reference. I am afraid that what lies ahead is just a dead end.”
“Tell me more about Chizuko Nagato.”
“Chizuko Nagato was born in November.” Mo Xiaofei said sternly, “But as far as I know, Saburo Nagato was on the battlefield around the new year of the same year!”
“Are you trying to say that Chizuko Nagato is not Saburo Nagato’s birth?” Zixing shook her head, “There is not much time difference. If Saburo Nagato had sex with his wife before the expedition, it would not be impossible. It’s more reasonable to say they have a lovey-dovey time before the campaign.”
“Though it is said that…” Mo Xiaofei nodded, “There is a subordinate responsible for the night watch. I once tied him up and interrogated him quietly. After Saburo Nagato left, Master Nagato once went quietly to the place where Saburo Nagato lives in the middle of the night. According to my observation, Saburo Nagato mistreats Chizuko Nagato and finds her annoying!”
Mo Xiaofei shook his head, “Which parent would hate his child? Chizuko Nagato, you should have seen her, right? This little girl is so beautiful. I like her from the bottom of my heart! It’s a pity that I can’t get close to Saburo Nagato. Even though I tried to get some clues when he was often drunk, I could not get anything. Initially, if I didn’t meet you this time, I was planning to capture Saburo Nagato…”
Mo Xiaofei did not say what he would do after seizing him. Zixing also cleverly did not ask.
Without going mad within one year of reincarnation. It would be abnormal if Mo Xiaofei had not experienced any changes.
Zixing could vaguely feel a hint of vicious intent in Mo Xiaofei, but she did not immediately point it out and just said, “Then, what about the village’s curse? The village girl you mentioned. Takeko?”
“That’s what I want to say. Those shameless deeds in Nagato’s house.” Mo Xiaofei took a deep breath. A horrifying murderous intent flashed in his eyes!
Mo Xiaofei shook his head, “I’m afraid it’s hard to say clearly. It’s better to let you take a look directly. You will have a more intuitive understanding. But first, you have to help me distract Master Nagato because the entrance of the mechanism is in the yard where he lives. Worse still, it is next to his bedroom. Master Nagato will not leave this place usually. Even if he leaves, he will order a servant to watch that place. No one is allowed to approach. Many times, I need to knock out the guards while Master Nagato leaves to sneak into the place!”
Zixing nodded, then looked at the time. She tied Mo Xiaofei with a rope again. It only looked like tight tied on the outside, but the rope only loosely warped on his hand.
After the two discussed, the best time to infiltrate was at night. With the arrival of the daughter of the Kondo family, the Nagato family would naturally put effort into hospitality.
Master Nagato was preparing a great dinner.
Soon after, the Kondo family’s samurai whom Zixing disbanded, came back from a round of inspections. He was planning to interrogate ‘Sasaki Kojiro,’ but Miss Tsukihime summoned him to accompany her to Nagato’s dinner. She left the interrogation after the dinner. She appeared not in a hurry. But, how could the samurai not be anxious about it? It was related to Tsukihime Kondo’s safety. How could the dinner in this rural place compare to it?
Under Tsukihime Kondo’s sharp gaze, the two samurai finally agreed. That is better. We should escort the lady on each side. With our outstanding combat prowess, we can stop any danger.
Even though Master Nagato was also a samurai, he was old now. How could he be their opponent? Zixing didn’t care what the Kondo samurai thought in their mind. She directly swung her sleeves to issue them to leave. Then, she summoned her handmaid.
“Put on the veil and wear my clothes. Tonight, you will be there for me.” Zixing said calmly, “Remember not to speak, just nod or shake your head.”
“Miss, I dare not!” How dare she pretend to be Tsukihime! This was probably a serious crime of decapitation!
“Just do as I tell you.” Zixing said in a deep voice, “Otherwise, you will be removed from Kondo’s house.”
Seeing this handmaid shivering in fear start trying on the clothes, Zixing sighed secretly. If it was not for the loss of demon beast power, why would it be so troublesome?
“Sit up straight! Don’t lower your head! You are Tsukihime Kondo now! Don’t lose your grandeur!”
There were far more people than the Nagato family when they ate. Not only the people of the Nagato family, but also some of those in senior generations of the Unripe Rice Village.
Of course, under the strict class system, Master Nagato also had to give up the main seat. His seat was slightly shifted to the bottom.
“Father, the next servant said Miss Tsukihime has already left the room.” Shinji Nagato whispered in Master Nagato’s ear.
Master Nagato nodded, “Wait a bit, remember to behave well. If you can become Miss Tsukihime’s husband-in-law, then our Nagato family will never have to… Anyway, you’re on your own.”
“Got it, father.” Shinji Nagato nodded cautiously.
Master Nagato suddenly said, “There is another thing. Chizuko is also your uncle’s daughter and thus your younger sister. No matter what, you shouldn’t hurt her. Do you understand?”
Axiu, who took care of Miss Chizuko improperly, was locked up and suffered heavy family punishment. She had probably spoken the truth in the process of suffering. It was not difficult for Shinji Nagato to think of this, but facing the reminder from his father at the moment, Shinji Nagato squeezed his fist.
He took another deep breath and recovered his calm. “I will pay attention next time, father.”
“Are you planning to have another time?” snorted Master Nagato coldly.
Shinji Nagato looked panicked, “No, no.”
At this time, the door opened. “Tsukihime Kondo” walked in slowly while escorted by two Kondo family samurai. Master Nagato quickly stood up. Once so, everyone in the room also stood up.
“Miss Tsukihime, you…what’s wrong with you?”
“Miss Tsukihime is feeling sick!” The samurai on the left said calmly, “So I can only cover her face with a veil! Nagato, Miss Tsukihime will still attend your dinner party even if she is ill. It’s your pleasure, you know!”
Master Nagato was grateful now. As for Shinji Nagato, he also began to look for opportunities so that he could impress the Kondo family’s princess.
At the dinner, ‘Tsukihime Kondo’ sat awkwardly without saying a word. Her hands were cold.
