“Ara~ If it isn’t the treasured kondo-san. It’s a pleasure to make your acquaintance.”
“I supply your troops with the goods from my shop. Feel free to request anything needed.”
Treasured? There was no treasure here but his men you see! The man laughed as he rubbed the back of his head sheepishly. “Thanks but flattery is no need. A true treasure is my men and all the visitors who come.” Kondo, you are doing it again. You’re being too friendly for you own good.
So she was one of the suppliers? Hm, impressive.
“Ah well then…” Kondo starts off before dipping into a deep bow. “I am grateful to you for supplying the men.”
Oh, he was a humble human, something kurohime found rare in this city but familiar as of late with most of the men in the shinsengumi. “Is that right?” She chuckled, eyes softening on the charismatic man before her. There was something… about him that was alluring. Not in a malicious way, but..admiring.
“Oh please, no need to bow.” She waved her hands at him then, feeling suddenly sheepish. “It was my pleasure. After all, it’s thanks to your men that I can sleep better at night and they take such good care of my friend, chizuru.”
