The Kai soldiers are retreating. One of the soldiers is pulling his fallen comrade that soldier 2 shouted what he is doing, they should retreat. The soldier asks him to help put this guy on the horse. The soldier 2 shouts for him to quit saying foolish things for that guy is already no good, leave him.. And, a Kouka soldier stabs soldier 2 and goes away. Soldier 1 starts to cry and curse those Kouka bastards. So the war for Kai’s ‘Gold Province’ [the place where Kalgan lives; I’ll translate the name of the place literally okay, instead of the romanji ^^;] is over in just a number of days because of Kouka’s overwhelming military power. Kai’s military were completely suppressed. As the defeated Kai soldiers regroup, they say that Gold Province is already over, taken by Kouka so in the end, this place would be occupied by Kouka.
Vengeful soldier [/soldier 1] mutters that he cannot forgive and he will curse Kouka. How can they just leave it at that, rather than for the place to become Kouka’s, wouldn’t it be better for them to destroy it first. Back at the village, Yun informs Yona that the dragons aren’t quite good for they are now vomiting what they ate, and it is difficult to get medicine in this place. Eavesdropping on them, Kalgan thinks that he was the one who infected them because when he was at Kouka, he was tired and weak. Kija and Jeha always carried him but if the people noticed that he was sick, they will think that the others infected him. With a pouch, Kalgan hurries to the next village where there is a huge medicine store. At Kumquat village, the pharmacist says that it is some sort of fever illness that it can be quite a hassle if an adult got it. The pharmacist gives Kalgan some medicinal herb to suppress the headache and vomiting. Kalgan thanks him and starts to leave when he hears a scream.
He wonders what it is so he peeks out the window. He sees the soldiers slaughtering the villagers. VG [vengeful soldier] shouts to take the food, money and women, those who resist would be wiped out. Steal and burn everything. A man asks what they are doing, they are Kai’s people so as Kai’s soldiers, why would they.. VG stabs the man. VG says that sooner or later, this place will become Kouka’s annexed territory and he won’t give anything here to those Kouka bastards. The pharmacist says that it is the defeated soldiers who are looking for a way to vent out their grudge. He tells Kalgan to quickly escape for those guys are going to burn and kill the towns and villages in this place. Kalgan quickly opens the window and runs through the alleys. Then, he is surprised to see a soldier on a horse in front of him. Meanwhile back at his village, Kalgan’s mother is looking for him. Upon learning the situation, Yona offers to look for Kalgan. She looks around and sees Kalgan approaching the village.
After calling out to him, she sees that a soldier on a horse is running after him. Upon seeing the soldier carrying a drawn sword, Yona quickly takes out her bow and arrow. She shoots down the soldier and goes to Kalgan. Breathing hard, Kalgan says that he got the medicine for the others and sorry that he got them sick. VG charges and shouts bastard, is she the bastard who shoot the arrow? Kalgan tells her to quickly escape for those are Kai’s defeated soldiers who kill, burn and plunder the nearby villages because they lost. Yona quickly prepares to shoot an arrow when Haku swings his halberd and slashes VG down from his horse. Haku asks if she is alright. After Yona says she is okay, Kalgan says that these guys had raided Kumquat and they’ll come here soon. Dying VG cries while muttering about destroying Kouka, if Gold Province is reduced to Kouka’s annexed territory, then he will plunder, kill and burn everything. Yona looks surprised by this.
Then, Kalgan points out to the Kai soldiers approaching their direction. Yona looks surprised as she looks at the soldiers. She seems to feel the soldiers’ sad and bitter feelings/thoughts that are repressed. She realizes that this war will unexpectedly bring about this, involving innocent people into it. Haku tells Yona to get Yun, Zeno and those dying idiots together and run away. About this, he’ll think of a way. Yona exclaims that even if it is him, he cannot win against them alone. Haku says that it is because he’s the only one who can fight right now. Yona tells him that she’ll also fight and she can fight. Haku asks how she can possibly be able to fight. As the horses approach, Yona pleads him to let her. Haku tells her to let him fight alone for she’ll hold him back. “Quickly go.” Yona becomes teary-eyed. Haku looks at her and tells her to please do not cry. Yona says that she didn’t, it is because of what he said that she cried.
As she wipes her tears, Haku holds her face and kisses her by her left eye. “Sorry, forgive me this time around, okay.” Yona looks surprise. Warming up his arm, Haku says, okay, his vitality is now up by a hundredfold. [<- because of the kiss, I presume =P] Blushing Yona is puzzled by that. Haku tells her to please quickly leave, her job is to protect Kalgan. Yona looks flustered but still grabs Kalgan’s hand and runs off. Putting his halberd on his shoulder, Haku awaits the approaching soldiers. The soldiers say that it is just one man with a weapon, ha, what can relying on a single person do. They ignore him and shout, Charge!! Haku suddenly jumps up and slashes the two guys. The others are bewildered over how he can ‘fly’ like that carrying that huge blade, what’s up with this guy. Kill him! Haku evades, slashes and got himself a horse. He slashes some more and blood are flying all over the place. The soldiers call him bastard and charge at him. Haku thinks that’s right, go after him and don’t leave a single person behind. During this time, he can fight and those guys can run away to a faraway place.
Meanwhile, Kija and the others can hear, well, Shina see, that there is a ruckus outside. Jeha says that the war should be over so how come he can hear the horses’ hooves from the ground. Then, they overhear Yona calling out to Yun. Yona asks them how the others are. Yun says that they are lying down for the fever has not left. Yona shouts for him to quickly get them up for the defeated soldiers are attacking the nearby village. Haku is currently hindering them in front of the village. There are a lot of people [/soldiers] so everyone should quickly leave here. As Kalgan gives the pouch to Zeno [and don’t ask me where it went afterwards], Zeno was tasked to help Kalgan in informing the villagers. Since Kalgan is probably tired, Zeno is going to carry him. Yona tells Yun to get the others to a safe place. Yun asks what about her. Yona says that she’ll go back to support Haku. Yun says no, that’s dangerous. Yona protests that if this keeps up, Haku will.. Yun says okay, in short, first hide the others.. Even if they are rare beasts, their bodies right now can’t compare with ordinary humans.. Yun goes into the tent to find the dragons missing.
Comment: Well, that is an expected thing in war for the defeated soldiers to want to ‘I don’t get this territory, neither will you’. In short, sore losers. In this case, it isn’t just territory, they are also killing all of the people and destroying everything there that they were supposed to be protecting. That is one mistake, and another mistake is for them to ignore Haku. I guess Haku’s reputation hasn’t reached the other countries. If there are any survivors, maybe it will now. It turns out that it was Kalgan who infected the dragons. It is nice how he tries to make amends. He really reminds me of young Haku there. ^^ The kiss is nice..is that a goodbye kiss? Well, here, for now, it is a power-up kiss. =P Haku in action is really a sight to see ^^ As for Yona staying or not, I think it isn’t wise for her to stay. Even if she can provide back up from afar, I assume that the soldiers are many so they can spread out and attack Yona. For now, it seems that these soldiers don’t have archers..if they do, Haku might be in trouble. If they don’t have archers, I don’t know if Yona is underestimating Haku or there are really just too many of them. So, is Yona weaker than three sick dragons? I’m sure they are not just going to give Yona and others a favor by hiding themselves =P
They would most probably not want to be damsel in distress and let Haku do all the fighting while they run away. That would make them into the level of Yona and the others. But then, for them to help Haku at their state, won’t they also be hindrances for Haku? I guess they leaned on willpower to get themselves up and leave. Ah, maybe they cannot go far because of their state so Yona and others can grab them and shove some medicine into them. Hehe..okay, their medicine is most probably the herbal medicine that has to be boiled first, and they don’t have the luxury of time to do that except to hide first before doing anything. Speaking of medicine, Kalgan gave it to Zeno who later on left with him. Maybe Zeno will just drop Kalgan nearby and go to the dragons? Dragons have a ‘gps’ thing to know where any of the dragons are, right? Again, that medicine has to be boiled. So, something big might happen next chapter. Let’s see..there is a possibility that sword-shield will come out like some Chinese readers would think. Suwon and others might also arrive...then thank Haku for his help in finishing up the war. ^^;; Hopefully, it doesn’t include someone from the good guys being killed. PS. It turns out that I made a mistake on the chapter numbering. I based it on the folders I saved on my computer but it turns out that the Japanese magazine, I presumed, skipped chapter 95..or they have a typo because they counted the side story before as a chapter. ^^; Sorry about that so chapter 100 ought to be something to anticipate for ^^ Scans by 红莲汉化组
