In front of the hospital
(After what happened earlier, an ambulance arrived and Anzu-dono was brought to the hospital.
Things would have gone terribly had Mikejima-dono not been there.
Even after the teacher came, I was too shaken up to do anything.
That man really is amazing. Even Captain-dono holds him in high regard.
If I had at least noticed something strange much earlier, perhaps Anzu-dono wouldn’t have been brought to the hospital!
It is my duty. If I cannot even sense my liege’s condition, I’m completely worthless.
… Anzu-dono, I wonder if you are okay. I am so worried that my heart is about to burst.
Well, if I am so worried in the first place, I would just have to go visit.
But what if I’m a bother to you? You might be sleeping, what if I wake you up? I keep worrying about things like that…)
Madara: “Crystal clear”! Don’t stop here! It’s better to go to Anzu-san’s room, yeaaah?
I heard from a nurse earlier, but her condition isn’t that bad, so we can visit at any time.
So let’s go! Let’s go together! “Good company makes the road shorter!” Anzu-san won’t be so lonely if a lot of people come visit her…☆
Shinobu: M-Mikejima-dono! But I… I do not know what kind of expression to face her with…
Madara: It’s fine, it’s fine! There’s nothing to be scared of!
A broad smile is good! A smile will dispel any anxieties and make people happy! So smile, smile real big! Hahahaha!
Madara: Anzu-san, Mama’s come to visiiiiiiiiit!
Ohh? Anzu-san’s not heeere. Sorry to interrupt your meal! How about here? Or heeeere?
This isn’t hide-and-seek! Please come out1A fun note is that rather than ください, Madara uses なさい instead for commands — it’s typically used by mothers with their children.!
Hm? “Don’t make such a ruckus in the hospital!”?
Oh, Anzu-san! Are you going to hit me with the hariseeen2A harisen is a paper folded fan, often used in comedy sketches. ? Don’t be so violent!
But you seem to be doing better than I thought, so I’m relieved. Anzu-san, do you know why you’re heeere?
Then, you heard you collapsed because of overwork and the change of seasons, riiight, Anzu-san?
Woah, Anzu-san. You still need to reeest. Being overworked is a very serious matter! Use this perfect opportunity to rest your body.
It’s not in my nature to preach, but let me say it as expected this time.
Work is important, but not to the point you hurt yourself. You won’t get anywhere without your body, so you should treat it like a temple.
Yes, I suppose you’re tired from a lot of things after you’ve been brought to the hospital… I’ll visit again and bring something for you another day.
Hm? “Is your sermon finished?”?
Like I told you earlier, it’s not in my nature. Besides, it’d be too cruel to preach your ears off, Anzu-san, especially after collapsing and being taken to the hospital.
Since the story of how you fainted spread through the school, I think a lot of students will come and visit. Hahaha. You’re so popular, Anzu-san ♪
What’s wrong, Anzu-san? Why bow your head?
Don’t apologize. Well, I don’t approve of you taking on too much work to the point of collapsing, though. But it’s fine, as long as you take care from now on.
Anzu-san, you’re not alone. If you cry out “Help!” someone will lend a hand.
All you have to do is grasp that hand back, instead of brushing it off. It’s a concept simple enough even for a child to understand, right?
Don’t hold out on us. Though it’s true that an idol and “Producer” shouldn’t have too close of a relationship…
But you’re still just a high school student, Anzu-san. You’d be lonely having just business-like relationships.
You can talk to your friends. I’m a childhood friend of yours, Anzu-san, so you can depend on me like long ago… ♪
“I’ll think about it”? Hahaha, how harsh! Yes, yes… However, that’s Anzu-san for you. ☆
Shinobu-san? How long are you going to keep hiding behind my baaack? Come on, please greet Anzu-san!
Shinobu: Owah, but I am not prepared…?!
Um, Anzu-dono? H-How are you feeling? Eh? You are fine now, so you want to be discharged immediately?
Y-you cannot do that! Anzu-dono, you collapsed because of overworking yourself! If you overdo it, you’ll just collapse suddenly again!
It is a request from yours truly that you please rest~!
I will be leaving for now, but I will come visit again!
Everyone will do their best to work together while you are gone, Anzu-dono… So, please work towards your recovery, Anzu-dono!–
Thanks to nanairo for the help again!
