@sillyikesenthings and I had a tumblr reblog war the other day and this came up as we talked.
Mc is as popular as Shingen and Hideyoshi in town.
She was walking out in town. Soon she was surrounded by some
of the younger villagers, some of the business owners, and their own vassals. It
had become an issue to even go out with her anymore as they would be jostled to
the side even if they were prepared for it and standing in back of her and
holding on to her shoulders.
She was someone to be around every person in the town knew
that, and they all wanted to be the one to catch her eye. The one who had
become the one to stand beside her was only wanting to go to the market place
with her quickly to pick up one thing. It was supposed to be a quick trip
before their outing that was supposed to be the two of them…….
“Are you done looking around?” he asked as he dismissed
every other person there. He would be damned if he had to fight for her attention.
When he had brought up the simple fact that he hated going into the town with
her because of the cow eyes every male had around her she laughed and said it
wasn’t that bad.
He had cleared his schedule to take her to the hot springs. He
had to fight with Hideyoshi not to have a guard as he wanted it just to be them
for the time being. They needed someone on one time she had said. Now as he
should in the heart of his own castle’s town with her he was finding that it
was difficult reminding himself not to scream, “She’s mine!”
“I am.” She said, and with her smile she turned and on his
arm though some tried to follow her and him, they walked to the waiting horse
for their trip. She looked around and smiled softly as she knew it drove him
crazy, but she couldn’t help but be nice to everyone. This trip was for her,
and she was grateful, regardless. He would have to deal with his issues on his
He saw the crowd gathered around her of the men in the
forces as she was trying to get her supplies. He wanted to go over to her, but
the crowd of woman was around him, and he could not be rude. He tried to meld
the two groups, but that didn’t seem to work either. He wanted to get to her
before someone else offered to help her. That was his job. his alone.
As he dismissed the women one by one in the nicest possible way
he tried to get her attention. She looked over and had a slight scowl still on
her face as she looked around him. he knew how she felt about all of his female
friends, but he was about ready to say the same about all the men surrounding
her. That was when it clicked with him how she must have been feeling all this
Without warning for the few hanger ons he had left around he
walked through the crowd and took her parcel and looked around at the group. He
was polite enough to dismiss them saying she had things to do. He looked down
at her and smiled, “I understand how you feel now. Can we try not to get the
crowds around us and next time just stay together?”
“We can try that.” She said as she looked up to him as she
lost the scowl.
“Well, kitten, you sure do have a lot of people who like
you.” He said as he saw the hordes of men turn and start to crowd around them. He
had only wanted to check the produce in the market place. He didn’t want this
at all. Though he sat next to her for a little while as she tried to get them
all to understand she was only there for a little while, he was losing patience.
He walked off to find what he came for as she tried to go after him. she always
thought herself not the crowd worthy type.
Masamune came back, and he nearly growled his way into the
center of the circle to where she was. He had a small pouch of the veggie he
wanted, and he then surprised the crowd by throwing her over his shoulder and
stalking off back to his palace. “Next time, we take Shotgetu.”
He hates going out period. Going out with her into town sets
him off the edge completely. He doesn’t want the attention. She doesn’t either,
but she just draws people to her as much as he tries to get them away. “I told
you there would be a crowd.” He mumbles to himself not even sure she could hear
him. when she shrugged her shoulders in response he wanted to go back to the
palace and wait.
He was not thrilled, pleased, or even slightly amused to
stand there and wait as the soldiers paid homage to her. He was the one who was
supposed to do that. He held his ground and waited until she finally could
break free from one crowd to walk into another. He looked at her, and though
his face was cold his hand tightened, and she smiled. “You like the attention?”
he asked through the rest of the insult was near his mouth he thought better of
“Not really. I don’t understand why they do this.” She said
as she looked at him, and he pulled her through the market to the back way to
his palace. “Maybe I should tell you. I won’t though.”
He was not going to let her go there again by herself.
“My new shipment of book is in. do you want to come?” he
said, and soon he instantly regretted it. He loved her and wanted to spend time
with her, but her crowds were too much. It was surprising because he always found
the women would be around him at certain times, but she would be surrounded by
The burning he felt when that happened always set his nerves
on edge. It was like he was in a battle he watched to see what those other men
would do. He didn’t like the feeling. He didn’t like the crowds. He didn’t want
her to go into the town.
“No, Nari. I think I will stay here for now.” She said as
she looked at him from the futon. “Go and get your books.”
He was silently grateful she didn’t want to go, he also
decided he would rather stay with her in the futon as he sent a vassal to get
“I must go into town. Be a good mouse and wait here.” He said
as they both knew he had things to ferret out, and she needed supplies. He went
off to the shady tea house deep within the towns limits through the alleyways
and what not. She was supposed to be headed to the market when it started with
one person stopping her, then another, and another. Soon the crowd was entirely
around her. She was smiling when and looking around when she felt a sudden
presence at her back. As his hand snaked around her torso and pulled her flush
to his lean body she knew she was in for it.
“Have you even made it to the marketplace, Princess?” he
asked as his silky tones washed over her. She shook her head, and he chuckled
as he looked up, and some the crowd left on their own.
“How do you do that?” she asked.
“Tricks of the trade.” He said as he helped her to the
market and then take her back to his palace. He wanted to show her a few tricks
of his own.
