[ ] Go for a walk in the bamboo forest with Tewi.
[ ] Ask Tewi to teach you the layout of area and how to find your way back if you get lost.
Right. The first place you got into soon after you walked out of the cave was the bamboo forest. You’re sure you could learn a thing or two about it while you’re staying. Who knows, you may be able to apply the knowledge with your proficiency in the art of sniping “Say, I was wondering if Tewi could teach me the layout of the bamboo forest and its routes,” you utter.
“That’s quite a thought, but why bamboo forest?” Kaguya asks.
“Well, maybe I can find my way back if I get lost there,” you shrug.
Tewi grins. “I can arrange for that, Captain, if you don’t mind going out for a walk,” she says with a wink.
“As a matter of fact, I was thinking of doing that, too,” you say. “Whatever it is, let me get dressed up after this. Can’t afford to walk outdoor with this attire, can I?” You finish the last piece of the pancake and breathe deeply in pleasure, tapping your tummy at the same time. “My praise to the Motherland for this exquisite meal. My blood, my heart, my soul, I shall offer them for your grace,” you speak.
Kaguya claps her hand. “Splendid speech, Mister Ivanov. Splendid.”
You sheepishly grin. “Thank you, Miss Kaguya.”
After the breakfast, you kill some time by helping Reisen with the dishwashing, using the opportunity to forge friendship of sort with her (although Tewi’s constant teasing at Reisen for being a useless bunny takes a lot to get used to). By this time Eirin and the servant have left, though Kaguya stays behind as to feed the rabbit. With the chore finished you excuse yourself and return to your room. There you stumble across the servant, holding what looks like the uniform you had asked to be cleaned last night.
“Your uniform is ready, sir,” she speaks.
“Good to hear that, because I was about to ask you for it.” You examine the clothes and notice they are thoroughly clean; your first thought is that the servant (or whoever did the cleaning) must have gone through hard time scrubbing the stains. It smells nice, too; you wonder what kind of washing agent they used. “You did well; I appreciate it. Though I admit I’ll miss the scent of battlefield after this,” you joke.
“I’ve done everything I could to have the clothes clean as you asked, sir,” the servant answers. “I hope you find the service satisfying.”
“Yes, very much so. Spasibo.”
She tilts her head, one of her rabbit ears drooping to the left as she does. “Excuse me?”
“In your language, that would be ‘thanks,” you tell her.
“Oh, yes.” She grins, as if she’s learning the new word. “Well, I’ll hope you’ll enjoy your day.”
The servant leaves. You enter the room and take the precious minutes to dress up; it feels good to be wearing the uniform back. You also strap on your gears, never forgetting your role as a soldier and as a safety precaution in case the trip goes amiss. You examine the scoped Mossin-Nagant and open the bullet chamber, making sure the bullets are still there. Right; while you’re at it maybe you can ask Tewi of any place you can resupply your ammunition stock (and if possible, finding a replacement for your lost MP40).
You leave the room. You make haste to the gate and meet Kaguya with the likes of Tewi and the white rabbit. “Looks like the strange zaichata is all geared up,” Kaguya says.
“I don’t find the calling particularly comfortable,” you cough.
“Why? It fits you the most,” she giggles. “Plus, you used that to describe yourself, weren’t you?”
“Not on daily basis, Miss Kaguya,” you tell her. “Not on daily basis.”
Kaguya, then, turns to Tewi and speaks of something you can’t comprehend (Tewi seems to grin at every word the princess is saying and you can only wonder), before she turns back to you. “Well, have fun exploring the bamboo forest, Mister Ivanov, and please be careful.”
“I will,” you nod.
She head backs to the mansion and leaves you with Tewi; the white rabbit follows her lead, hopping all the way as they enter the door and disappear from sight. You look at Tewi who in turn looks back at you.
“So, Captain, ready for some jungle trekking?” she asks.
You nod and holster the rifle. “I’m more than ready, Comrade Tewi. Lead the way.” She grins widely at the address; maybe she’s been waiting to be called that.
“Well, then.” She tiptoes to the front and point to the bamboo forest. “Which way do you want to go?”
[ ] left.
[ ] right.
[ ] straight ahead.
Well, I hope I got the Russian right, as I know nothing of the language (had to consult my friend for its translation).
