The Tanaka Family Reincarnates - Chapter 106
Sneaking and Sneaked Upon Ignorant Mice [Part 1]
What is happening right now?
The ninjas lurking in the attic couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
They had devoted themselves to training the ability to erase their presence naturally.
The point was that a ninja who has hidden his presence cannot be detected by human senses alone. That’s what a ninja is.
-One of the ninjas’ POV-
After entering the Kingdom, no one, not even in the most highly guarded royal castle, noticed us. Ninjas mainly work on intelligence gathering, but in this country where we didn’t understand the language, guarding Imperial Prince Tasuku became our focus. In this unfamiliar foreign country, we were unable to act as we would in our motherland. Despite that, by erasing our presence, we somehow managed to escort the Imperial Prince without being discovered by any Kingdom people.
Perhaps we’ve gotten a little greedy.
At the Imperial Prince welcoming banquet, a girl who understood Imperial Japanese had appeared.
The slender and delicate girl left right away because she felt unwell, but her existence had greatly shocked not only the Imperial Prince but us ninjas as well.
Seeing that not only we but the Kingdom people also looked surprised, it seems that even the Kingdom had no idea she existed.
The next day, we heard that the King would visit that girl’s mansion, and Prince Tasuku, who would tag along, contacted us after seeing this chance.
Perhaps there would be something like a Kingdom language – Imperial Japanese dictionary in that mansion. We also thought that maybe they possessed something more revolutionary, like a magic stone with the magic to master languages.
Our excitement grew rapidly. If ninjas could understand the Kingdom language, we could perform our original intelligence-gathering work. No one in the Kingdom seemed to be able to erase their presence like a ninja.
We would surely gain the upper hand by the time the two countries begin diplomatic relations.
While we were waiting at the gate of that girl’s mansion, I had one of my subordinates replace one of the Kingdom people. I was sure that as long as the King was there, they would not have any unnecessary conversation.
The good thing is that the Kingdom was safer than we thought, so I entrusted the task of guarding the Imperial Prince to that one subordinate, while the remaining 19 of us searched the mansion.
Compared to the royal castle, this mansion’s security was a significant let-down.
Ridiculously, this huge mansion only had one gatekeeper. The whole area was surrounded by high walls, but a ninja could easily cross it even without going through the gate.
It took us a while to get to the mansion because the garden was too large, but it didn’t matter even if we passed in front of the gardener because we wouldn’t be noticed as long as we hid our presence.
Once we had easily intruded the mansion, just when we started to search for dictionaries and magic stones…
Suddenly, one of my subordinates was sent flying without a sound.
I caught them just before they hit the wall and laid them down on the floor quietly.
My subordinate had lost consciousness.
What was going on? No one here in the Kingdom was supposed to be able to detect us.
My subordinates who had advanced ahead of me were sent flying one after another without a sound. All were laid down on the floor.
It’s so fast that I couldn’t see the assailant.
On my command to the remaining four ninjas, we somehow managed, barely, to escape unscathed to the attic.
All of this was over within seconds.
Even in Imperial Japan, elite ninjas only need a few seconds.
