The Longest Road
~Chapter 37. Relief is only temporary~
The room had been very small and sparsely furnished. Actually, there had been only three single-sized futons on an uncovered floor, and a low small table in the corner. Not that Matsuri would expect more from a room for servants and kitchen helpers. At first, it had seemed to her she would feel comfortable there. The owner of the guest house was a kind man, and other girls were nice. However, after a few months she had fully realized she could never belong there. She was a changed person, different from who she had been before Jōseki ordered to kidnap her and feed her to the monster.
Since then, she had learned not to trust, not to depend on anyone else, not to ask for mercy. She was aware that it was exactly what people called loneliness but she was stuck in it too deep to find any way out. She wasn't even sure if she actually wanted out, after all she had been through.
Miraculously, she had managed to escape Kaze no

Gaara was about to leave the hut. He decided he couldn't stay in it any longer because the longer he stayed the more chances increased that the pursuers would come.

The tomb was looking exactly like others. A plain, white, smooth stone with only her name carved in it. Naturally, in years to come it would inevitably change. The blazing sun and the desert winds would work together over it until it would erode, and the name would gradually vanish.
But now, the inscription was still perfectly legible. Chiyo, it said.
Baki was standing in front of the grave for quite a long time, pondering. Even though Chiyo had been often declaring her indifference to the village's future, she had still lent a hand when the circumstances called for it. She had agreed to proceed with unsealing Shukaku, and would certainly transfer the demon back into its kettle if not for the interruption.
That was where Baki's frown deepened.
He still didn't know who the attackers were. Donned in the black coats with the pattern of red clouds, they had fought well enough to effortlessly slay too many of Baki's best people. Nothi
