Taiyou caught all the scattered bullets.

Gunfire had no effect on him whatsoever, thanks to the skill ‘Nullify Long-Range’ outside the laws of physics.

The bullets halted in their tracks as soon as they touched him, falling right onto the ground.

“Is this all of you?”

Taiyou asked, almost as if he were asking what was for breakfast.

Of course no one answered. In fact, they all clustered together with their firepower.

“Not gonna answer, huh? Welp, guess I can spare one of you the destruction.

Taiyou grinned, charging at the enemies.

He took on the rain of bullets by himself, knocking them right back at every enemy.

Taiyou was only punching, but this punch was the equivalent of the armpower of pulling an elevator up.

The enemies that got hit were launched off, landing in dangerous positions and bounding off from there until they stopped moving.

Taiyou made sure to leave one of them unconscious, and then the battle was over.

“Where’s Master?”

Akiha asked as she went to meet Taiyou descending the stairs.

“I had her go protect everyone. She’s more of a joker in the case of something happening.”

“Okay. But I guess she didn’t have to do anything. You’re crazy strong after all, Taiyou.”

“So you were alright?”

“Of course. Akiha-sama would never let thugs like those take her out.”

“…What’s this?”

He touched Akiha’s cheek with a finger.

Blood was emerging from the bullet grazed wound.

“Ah, one of them grazed me. Yeah, just a trivial wound, that’s all.”

“Don’t get yourself hurt so much. Wait, did you stay behind to stop these guys?”

“Mhm. Leave this area to me, you go on ahead.”

“No c’mon, you can’t say that!”

“Ahahahahaha, right in the middle of a death flag, indeed.”

Hera cackled as she flew in from the side.

“You didn’t seriously say that, did you?”

“Aoba got really pissed at me.”

“Uh yeah, anyone would!”

“It was the first time Aoba got angry at me. Fantastic!”

“You’re fine with anything, aren’t you…”

Taiyou snapped. Then he sighed.

“But it’s true. You didn’t see her earlier, which is why you say that. But that version of Aoba was the most fantastic so far.”

“…Just so you know, I don’t want to see you angering her on purpose just to see that.”

“Yeah, yeah, I know.”

Akiha patted Taiyou’s back.

“I’ll just wait for the right opportunity. Something that can’t be helped, like today, yeah?”

“…”

Taiyou grimaced.

True, he wouldn’t get angry if Akiha said it in a pinch.

He’d probably thank her for saying it, in fact.

However.

“I won’t let you do that.”

“Oh?”

“I’ll make sure this never happens again.”

Taiyou declared assertively.

He had made his decision.

Taiyou, Kohaku, Youran, and Sakura.

The four brains of the group had gathered in the same room.

“I’m very sorry.”

Sakura apologized to Taiyou. 

“What happened?”

Youran asked.

“You managed to take one of them alive, but they died just now. Killed themselves with a poison kept in their back teeth area.”

“You kidding me?”

“Suicide yet again. Danna-sama’s enemies seem to share that trait, don’t ye think?”

“Or at least that’s how it is for my enemies. It’s happened a lot.”

“A lot, you say?”

“Indeed. Despite what my appearance would have you think, I have quite the number of enemies.”

Youran said in her Shingetsu no Kami tone of voice. She was clearly messing around.

“Yeah, but don’t you think you have one too many enemies?”

“Aye, she has a lot. In fact, isn’t it rare to even get targeted once in yer life—-”

Kohaku asked, looking at Youran.

“I don’t remember past the hundredth one.”

“Yup, ye got too many enemies, ja.”

“So do you have any idea?”

“I don’t know who they are, but I have an idea who might have leaked our location.”

“Wow.”

“After I got seriously betrayed last time, I did many things to ensure that no information would leak about our routes. Sakura.”

“Leave it to me. I will take care of it.”

“Take care of what?”

Taiyou asked Sakura.

“Send the darkness back to the darkness appropriately.”

“…Well, that does sound like the best plan.”

Taiyou heard some ominous words, but he figured it was for the best.

Right now, there was no one more important than his brides. He had to think of this as a necessary precaution to protect every bride.

“So what’s next?”

“What’s next?”

“I mean are we going to continue our vacation or not.”

“Ah, mm…”

Youran fretted. Now that they were already assailed, it might be rather dangerous here.

“Leave it…to me.”

“Uwah!”

Taiyou freaked out. This was because he suddenly heard Ruri’s voice from behind.

“Ruri! Since when did you get here?”

“I was…always here.”

“No, tell me.”

“Anyway…leave it to me.”

“Leave what to you?”

“I can easily…keep watch over this island.”

“So you’d quickly find out if we get any intruders?”

Kohaku asked, and Ruri nodded in affirmation.

“Focus…that’s all.”

“Crazy…”

“It would be in our best interest for you to do that, but…”

Sakura said, looking at Taiyou to see what he thought.

In other words, the final decision always lay with him.

“You said you’d just focus, right?”

She nodded silently.

“So you can’t do anything else? Would you seriously be okay with being left out?”

“In that case…mou man tai.”

“Huh?”

“When we get back…I’ll just have you all to myself for one day.”

In other words, she would have her fun later, and all alone with him.

Taiyou thought for a bit and then nodded.

“Alright, thanks.”

This special bargain sale would have never been possible for her before.
