Jeha and Yona check on Kija who collapsed. Yun asks what happened. Kija says that he doesn’t know but Kija suddenly collapsed and he has a high fever. Yun says that they have to quickly find a place for him to rest. Kilgan [formerly Keigen; courtesy of Na-chan] tells them to go to his house for it is nearby. He says that his father and the others will definitely welcome them, after all, they helped him a lot. In the village, Kilgan’s parents are delighted that he is back. Just when his father asks where he went, Kilgan apologizes but he brought some guests, friends from Kouka. His parents are shock for they told him not to go there. Kilgan tells them to talk about that later on but one of them collapsed with high fever so can he bring them home to rest. His father says that they are suspicious so how can they bring them home, don’t joke around. Kilgan insists to his father that these people helped him and they are good people. Kilgan’s father sees sick Kija and the gossiping neighbors about the guests from Kouka. The father relents and tells the guests to come with him and he’ll prepare some bed for them.
In the house, Yun treats feverish Kija. Kilgan apologizes for his parents but Yona says it is okay for they let them stay for a while and gave them food. Seeing the people looking at them, Jeha says that the people are bothered that they are from Kouka. Haku tells him that it is because this place used to be Kouka’s territory. Looking at Kilgan, Haku says that is pretty much the reason. Kilgan says yes, right now, due to the war, this place is Kai’s possession but his parents and the people, who stay there, are from Kouka. Even if everyone do not say it but they extremely reminisce the land of Kouka and their friends. So, he always wanted to see his father’s homeland. Yona says is that so. Then, Kilgan’s father tells his son not to recklessly say things because for them, it doesn’t matter which country their place belongs to. From Kouka to Kai, obviously the position of the village doesn’t change but because both countries are fighting and grabbing it, they know that even if they resist, it would be useless. Kilgan says that they always longed for Kouka, by the river bank. His father insists that they have neatly forgotten about Kouka. He urges Yona and others to leave the place as soon as possible.
Outside, K’s father is met with a villager who mention about his son taking in those people from Kouka. He asks if it is alright since they are dressed weird. ^^; He also asked K’s father about seeing soldiers by the riverside and is something going to happen. Walking away, K’s father says that he doesn’t know for no matter how worried they are, if a country had decided on it, they don’t have the slightest amount of ability to disobey that huge power [/situation]. At Hiryuu palace, Suwon got a letter from some place [which I think is part of Kai], regarding returning Kilgan’s village back to Kouka. The messenger reads about that poisoning incident at water tribe, that is just some merchants and nobles reckless action and they categorically do not know about it. They totally do not want to cause internal disorder within Kouka nor infringing on things related to Kouka. Then, they apologize in sincerity for the trouble. Suwon comments that is one type of extreme benevolent formality. Someone asks for the confirmation of positions of the armies of the tribes’ generals. Judo, sky general, reports that Water general will restore law and order within its territory as a priority and it is in charge of the southwest defense.
With Wind tribe’s adaptability, they are in charge of south defense and provide support for the Fire tribe at the northeast. A small group from Fire tribe led by Tejun, fire dude, will strengthen the northeast. The rest of the troops led by Earth, Fire, and Sky will head towards Kilgan’s village and attack. Keishuku, adviser, says that everything is going according to what Suwon ordered but is Kyouga, fire dude’s bro, really okay. Suwon says that Kyouga’s personality is totally sincere and he is always doing his best in studies. Suwon believes that he knows the difference between ruling a tribe and national policy. Keishuku asks if it is okay for Kyouga to be the vanguard [leading the force] for shouldn’t it be Gunte, earth general. Suwon assures him that it is alright because he thinks that Kyouga wants to wash the dirt on their name and compared to their anticipation, he is quite active [in doing it?]. Suwon says that before Iru became king, those lands were ruled by his father so no matter what others say, they are going to take back what belongs to them.
Back at Kilgan’s village, Yona asks if Kija is okay. Kija apologizes for delaying their journey. She tells him not to mind that. Yona asks Yun about the situation. Yun doesn’t know the cause of the disease so he first gave Kija medicine to remove the fever but it appears not to be a simple cold. Jaeha tells Yona that Kija is fine for his life is like a certain Kyou? [強; not sure if it is the squirrel. The Japanese name is Aoki, right?] and better not get infected. Kija is angry that he is being compared to a cockroach. Jaeha suggests that Yona walk around since she is curious about the village’s situation. Haku goes with Yona. Yun goes to get some water. After they left, Jaeha asks if Kija can still use his dragon hand. Kija says that it isn’t the same as before. Jaeha asks if there is a new dragon born in white dragon village. This surprises everyone. Kija says no, for it isn’t that kind of feeling. Jaeha says that’s good. Kija asks why he suddenly mentioned that. Jaeha tells him that his predecessor died at age 27 and he will soon be at that age. It is almost time for a new dragon so their powers will be used up and they’ll die so it isn’t strange, right? Sitting up, Kija comments that it is rare for him to talk about that topic but it isn’t bad for him to talk about such an important topic. Jaeha says that it is because he will say that so it is troublesome.
Kija says that is right, the four dragons cannot live a long life but he already made himself aware of it so anytime he’ll offer up his life to his master. Jaeha says that it is so like him to not relate it with their lifespan. They were interrupted by a splashing sound. Yun has dropped the water he is carrying. He apologizes then asks if what they were talking about is true. Jaeha tells him that it is nothing for anyway, everyone dies someday. Yun is still depressed that Kija tells him not to worry for even if a new dragon is born, it isn’t like they are doing to immediately die. Jaeha says that’s right, the previous one lived until he was 12 years old. Punching Jaeha, Kija tells Yun that his power didn’t decline even if he has a fever. Teary-eyed Yun says that even so, he asks them to tenaciously live on. Jaeha asks him to keep this a secret from Yona. Outside, Yona is still worried about Kija. Then, she notices some ominous dark clouds as if it is the sound of a tempest from a far away place. She wants Kija to quickly become better so that they can return to Kouka. She sees Jaeha coming out of the house. She asks him about Kija. To her surprise, Jaeha hugs her tightly. Haku arrives and sees them. Yona asks Jaeha what the matter is. Jaeha apologizes to Yona and promptly collapses.
Comment: Ugh, so what they are talking in baidu turned out to be true about ‘do not die’. ^^;; I do wonder if their lives will somehow be extended since they are with Yona unlike the previous ones. I would want to think that they are getting sick because they are outside the kingdom or better yet, they are in the process of powering up. Lol. You know Yona feeling bad about things and so the dragons will somehow power up in accordance to how she would need them. If they will die early, so much for thinking that Yona would rule the kingdom with them. ^^; Also, there is that theory that Yona might get the sword and shield soon if she is forced not to rely on her sick dragons. Somehow, this makes me thankful that Haku isn’t a dragon. And I hope the reason why Jaeha collapse is related to Kija and not related to a new dragon. It is really nice that Kilgan knows how to be grateful to those who helped him out and insisted on it when his father isn’t inclined to help them. It seems that his father has resided to the fact that they cannot go back to belonging to Kouka. But since there is a war to get them back, would they side with them? Somehow, I think people will die in that village since that is where they are going to fight to take it back. Kilgan’s father kept on mentioning how powerless they are, and I was about to mention that they have the dragons but then..two are sick now. ^^;
That also means, they are also going to get caught in the war since they will not be able to move around anytime soon. I also think that Yona will act depending on the village’s decision to let it be taken back or not. I guess it is awful to live in a village that is bordering to warring countries. So far, Suwon’s tactic is sound. While they are going to take back a territory from Kai, they are also defending themselves from other countries that might take advantage of the situation. Of course, I’m not sure if he is belittling Kai since he just split up his army. Are three main armies enough? It is interesting to know that those lands used to belong to his father. That might be another reason to hate Iru, either by his father or by Suwon. It seems like an insult that their territories were the ones ‘sacrificed’ so that no blood is shed. Of course, it cannot be helped if it is the territory closest to Kai. Wasn’t Yuhon compensated for it? Anyway, the clouds, war and two sick dragons mean bad news for Yona and the others. I wonder if there will be more sick dragons in the next chapter. If there is, my guess would be Shina. By the way, I wonder if Yona’s power is to predict things. Lol, somewhat like in Dawn of Arcana but hers is vague and perhaps not awakened yet. Maybe it is just a coincidence. Here, it is about the clouds. Then, before, when that scar guy is going to attack her, she sensed it but then, didn’t do much about it. Something like Spiderman’s spidey sense. =P
