Maybe a Fake Gintama - Chapter 58
‘Your mission is to keep an eye on Kawaki!’
Shinpachi looked at Kawaki, who was constantly shouting [another bowl] in the ramen shop, and couldn’t help but think of Gintoki’s words.
“I think Gin-san’s verbal orders are completely unnecessary. Kawaki-san doesn’t look like someone who likes to mess around.” Shinpachi muttered and then looked at Kagura, “Hey! Wipe your saliva!”
“Pachi, I can’t hold it-aru…” After saying that, Kagura staggered towards Kawaki.
“No, Kagura-chan. Gin-san’s order is to keep an eye on Kawaki-san.” Shinpachi quickly pulled Kagura-chan and advised.
In the end, the two of them had been discovered by Kawaki.
“Eh? What are you two doing here?” Kawaki swallowed the noodles in his mouth and asked.
“Ah! I was discovered. It’s all your fault, Kagura-chan.” Shinpachi whispered.
“Are you hungry? Do you want to eat ramen?” Kawaki asked again.
“Hey, why did you pick up the pork in my bowl? Don’t you have it yourself?” Shinpachi roared.
“The food in your bowl seems to be more delicious-aru…” Kagura said as she ate.
“Then give me the pork in your bowl.” As he spoke, Shinpachi extended his chopsticks into Kagura’s bowl. However, Kagura did not give Shinpachi the chance to do so. She instantly shifted the position of her bowl.
“You are too cunning!”
Looking at the two people who were making a fuss, Kawaki smiled helplessly and said, “You two are really energetic.”
“Right, why didn’t the silver-haired naturally wavy hair come this time?” Kawaki asked Shinpachi and Kagura with a smile.
However, the two people who were fighting over the ramen had no time to look over and just casually responded.
Finally, after the two of them finished eating, Kawaki paid the bill and walked out of the ramen shop.
Shinpachi and Kagura quickly followed him, but after following him for a while, they found that he had disappeared.
“What should we do? Gin-san told us to keep a close eye on him!” Shinpachi frowned and said.
Suddenly, Kawaki’s voice came from behind them, startling both of them, “What are you two trying to do?”
“Ah, actually, there’s nothing.” Shinpachi turned his head and said.
“En, there is absolutely no such thing as staring at you-aru!” Kagura nodded and said.
“Hey! You already said it!” Shinpachi quickly covered Kagura’s mouth and looked at Kawaki. At the same time, he laughed and said, “Actually, we were just passing by…”
“Who would believe it!” Kawaki shouted, but then he sighed and continued, “That idiot really underestimated me. He even asked two children to keep an eye on me.”
“Eh? Is Kawaki-san not going to make a move on Rengokukan?” Shinpachi asked curiously.
“Make a move? Who said that?” Kawaki was confused.
“At that time…” Shinpachi was referring to the killing intent that burst out from Kawaki at that time.
“Oh, that,” Kawaki finally understood, so he stretched out a finger and explained, “At that time, I thought that today was the game’s expected release date, but at that time I had already missed the time, so I was a little angry.”
“Hey, you are really so scary when you are angry…” Shinpachi complained in a low voice.
“Actually, I was just angry at myself. So I just turned anger into appetite!” Kawaki clenched his fists and his face was full of indignation.
“Enough, I don’t want to complain anymore,” Shinpachi said with a black face.
“Where did that idiot go? Does he want to get involved with that Rengokukan?” Kawaki asked, then sighed and continued, “He still likes to meddle in other people’s business as always.”
“I don’t know…” Shinpachi just said this, but then he thought of something and took out a folded paper from his body.
“Gin-san said that if there was an accident, we could come to this place to look for him.”
In fact, this piece of paper was secretly thrown to Gintoki when Toshiro took Sogo away, but no one noticed it.
“Well, then why don’t I get involved? It sounds interesting, doesn’t it?” Kawaki suggested with a smile.
“It looks like this is the right place…” Gintoki squatted in the grass and muttered to himself as he looked at the wooden house not far away.
Just as Gintoki was thinking about whether he should take this step, he suddenly heard the scream of a child. He then rushed over without thinking.
When he reached the door, Gintoki carefully squatted in front of the door. At the same time, he opened the door a little and looked inside. He saw dozens of children playing around, not the scene he imagined.
“What the hell is going on?”
Just as Gintoki was surprised, a man’s voice sounded, and…
“Theif!” The man shouted, and at the same time, he gave Gintoki a One Thousand Years of Death.
Kawaki and the other two, who had just arrived, looked at this scene with black lines on their faces.
Fortunately, Kawaki was quick and immediately covered Kagura’s eyes, “Forget about this! This kind of dirty adult world is not in your summer homework!”
“I’m really sorry about what happened just now.” The middle-aged man with a buzz cut sat in front of the table and looked at the three people in front of him and continued, “Because your [Ass] looks suspicious. If I am not careful…”
Kawaki, Gintoki, and Shinpachi sat opposite the middle-aged man with a buzz cut, while Kagura was playing with a group of children.
“Bastard, how could ass look suspicious?” Gintoki said while rubbing his buttocks, “Damn it! My ass is splitting in two!”
“Gintoki, calm down. Everyone’s ass is in two halves!” After saying that, Kawaki pretended to be a little regretful, “It’s already fortunate enough that it didn’t help you open the door to some new world, right, Shinpachi?”
“Hey, are you looking forward to Gin-san opening the door to some new world?” Shinpachi complained.
“What’s wrong with you two? Didn’t I tell you two to look after Kawaki?” Gintoki continued.
“This…” Shinpachi scratched his head and laughed.
“But to be honest, you were also careless. Hiding there to peek at other people’s homes is really…” The man continued.
“I heard that there is a scary demon living nearby, is it really okay to bring such a group of children?” Gintoki raised his head and asked.
“Demon? It sounds strange…” The middle-aged man smiled and continued, “Are you saying you’re [Momotaro], the demon slayer?”
“We are not interested in inferior demons. Our goal is the head of the demon.” Gintoki casually replied, “Of course, if there is a rare treasure, it is another matter.”
“Rare treasure?” As he spoke, the middle-aged man put on the familiar red demon mask, “If you have to say it, then it must be those children.”
Gintoki & Shinpachi: “Ah~!”
“Y-you, what the hell are you trying to do” Gintoki, who was lying on the ground, shouted.
“I just want to ask what you want to do.” The middle-aged… no, it should be called Kidomaru, “Did you follow me all the way from the arena?”
“Actually, it was an address given by a yellow-haired police officer. It has nothing to do with me!” Gintoki replied.
“Then… you are…” Shinpachi said in disbelief.
“Hey, hey, calm down. The two of you,” Kawaki continued helplessly, “Gintoki, have your senses regressed to the time of a baby?”
As he spoke, Kawaki poured himself a cup of tea.
Seeing Kawaki’s attitude, the middle-aged man took off his demon mask again, “I am Rengokukan’s fighter, Kidomaru. My name is Oshou Doushin.”
At dusk, Kawaki and the other two sat under the eaves and watched Kagura playing with a group of children.
“Hey, is this really okay? Giving us tea?” Gintoki sighed and continued, “We are here to deal with the scary demon.”
“Please change [We] to [I] to be more accurate, Gintoki.” Kawaki reminded from the side. Then, he picked up his teacup and looked at the group of children who were playing around.
“Haha, Are you sure? You’re having tea with a bloody demon like me…” Oshou Doushin replied with a smile.
“I won’t treat a guy surrounded by so many children as a demon,” Gintoki said as he picked up his teacup and took a sip.
“These children are…” Shinpachi asked.
“They are all my children.” Oshou Doushin replied.
“It seems that you were very good at flirting when you were young~” Gintoki teased.
Oshou Doushin smiled and continued, “No, everyone was abandoned.” As he spoke, Oshou Doushin picked up a child who had just learned how to walk with a face full of love.
“You, could it be that you did that to raise this group of little brats…” Gintoki muttered.
“Do I look that great? This me who is covered in blood…”
“Are you…” Gintoki said in confusion.
“Be it now, or in the past, I have always been a [Killer]. I’ve always been strong and without knowing it everybody called me [Killer].” Oshou Doushin continued, “After all, I killed people so I was thrown into prison and waiting for my head to roll. At that time, a group of people took a fancy to my fighting skills and redeemed me from prison. Those are them. You seem to want to destroy Rengokukan, but I advise you and for your own safety, it’s better not to get involved.”
“Don’t worry, the little brother next to you is a big man who is afraid of ghosts~?” Gintoki said casually.
“Ah?” Kawaki suddenly reacted, “Hey! What are you talking about? Is there a need to drag me into the water?”
However, in the end, Kawaki looked at the children playing around and turned to Oshou Doushin, “Hey, I still need a security guard. Are you interested?”
“You…what are you…”
“To atone for your sins, you can’t simply rely on such means to raise these little brats who don’t know where they came from. At the very least, if you want to completely atone for your sins, you have to wait until you raise them into outstanding adults. Think about it carefully. I will wait for you in Yoshiwara. Although it is also an underground world, it is different from what you used to be.”
After saying that, Kawaki stood up and was about to leave. But at this time, a kunai shot straight at Kawaki’s forehead.
