(Taken from Novel
Author’s Synopsis (Translated by Shunshenbar):
She kept strong despite feeling otherwise,
vehemently refusing him: You can have me, but never think for once you can have
That man completely didn’t care. He faintly smiled: I only want you, who said anything about your heart?
She held onto his leg, crying: Your lordship! Please! I’m willing to offer myself!
The man kept his attention on the book in his hand and replied her absent-mindedly: You want to offer, but I don’t want you.
Takasugi Shinsaku penned: “I’d kill all the crows in the world, to sleep with you till morning tolls (1).” The novel is drawn from here.
This is a line from the Japanese poem 「明け烏 夢の淡雪」 “Ravens at First Light: Faint Snowfall in Dreams” credited to Takasugi Shinsaku.
