sensitive to the environment, it has to be impossible not to sense the presence of others.


In what limited field of vision I still had, a spider loomed into view.


A giant purple spider as big as a person’s head.


What is happening right now?

I couldn’t understand it at all.


After a while, some burly men came to the attic to collect myself and my four subordinates.


Did that monster spider work for humans?


Did Kingdom people keep spiritual creatures[2] that even ninjas are no match for?


[T/N 2: Spiritual creatures, or 化物 bakemono typically, but not always, refers to imaginary monsters in Japanese folklore.
Note: different from monsters that threaten cities (魔物 mamono)]


I thought we had done well at the royal castle.
Had they been letting us roam around freely while actually monitoring us? Perhaps even as we erased our presence and lurked around, trailing behind us was the invisible creature who had sent a large number of my subordinates flying without a sound.
Or the giant spider creature who had bound us before we realized it.


I was unable to resist, due to the purple thread.
While I was being carried, regret and anxiety washed over me, and thus I desperately gritted my teeth, but even that little act was thwarted by the thread.

I can’t even commit suicide with the poison I hid in my teeth?


As we arrived at the room in despair, the girl who could speak Imperial Japanese at the banquet was waiting for us there with an innocent smile unbefitting of the situation.


Behind that girl, I could see that my 14 subordinates who had been struck earlier were laid down on the floor.
Those ninjas were members of my elite force.


Her innocent smile and my subordinates’ bodies…


For the first time in my life, anger, sorrow, and all sorts of emotions surged through my whole body.
Despite that, my body couldn’t even tremble, let alone voice it.



Author’s words: No matter how outstanding a ninja might be, he still wouldn’t stand a chance against Meowcom and Valsok.
