The master hasn’t been coming lately.

There’s no end to my loneliness.

He’s not here! Not here! Not here! Not here! Why are you not here, stupid master!

The red guy brings me meat, but the master’s nowhere to be seen!

I want the master to bring me meat!

I’ve been grooming myself everyday just so I could show my fur to master. Every day, I wake up, wash my face at the lake, drink water, eat meat, and groom myself. Ever since Chi and the others started being able to bark, master stopped coming.

Does master prefer Chi?

…No, no! Something like that should be impossible!

My fur, my body, the angle of my tail… no matter how you look at it, I’m better!

Sigh… It’s so boring.

So let’s eat for the meantime.

I chased after the small, white, fluff, hopping before my eyes.

Effort is needed to maintain a soft and glossy fur.

I won’t go to master myself.

It’s master’s job to bring me food, and it’s my right to let him touch my fur.

That’s why I won’t go until master comes to bring food himself.

But still… I have to say… this meat that this red guy’s been bringing has gotten tasty lately.

I want to eat again…

I wonder if I’ll be able to eat as much as I want if I went over to master’s?

uuuU.

I caught the white fluff with the claws I’m so proud of.

◆◆◇

Before I knew it, my legs had started walking toward master’s place.

But as I did, I played with the bones of the white fluff from before using my mouth.

I wonder if he’d call me vulgar if he saw me like this.

But I don’t care. The one who’s at fault is master.

If master had properly brought orc meat, then I wouldn’t be eating something like the bones of that white fluff.

Mn~ Still… It sure is fun chewing on the bones with my sharp fangs.

The taste seeping out of the bones is so delicious.

“Uu~”

Before I knew it, I was humming.

Ha, …No good. No good.

When I meet master, I need to make sure I properly show unsatisfied I am.

That’s why I need to bring the bone of this white thing, and t-throw… actually it’s not like I need to bring the bone that close to matter… right?

Then if I were to dig a hole, and put it there, master won’t see it!

Right! Let’s bring the bone right underneath master!

The green ones are the lowest in ranking.

The rankings come after that.

The blues one are a little amazing.

But the most amazing of them all is the brown one who is my master.

Of course, since I receive food from master, the next greatest one is me.

There are also the two-legged thin ones, but I don’t really get them.

Those so-called humans sometimes enter the forest. I don’t like them cause they like to bully us, but the humans over at master’s place gives us plenty of meat, so I like them.

As I thought those things to myself, I walked until I neared a place where I could smell master’s scent.

“Woof!”

But what entered my ears was…

The voice of my natural enemy!

◇◆◆

The gray wolves are my natural enemies.

That gray fur of theirs, and even though they were so small before, I can’t believe they’re now about half my size.

Unfair!

Master’s definitely feeding them lots of meat!

My ferocious howls have no effect on them either.

Look, those two are actually slobbering with their tongues out, and wagging their tails vigorously, while staring at the white thing’s bones in my mouth!

I-I’m not giving you any!!

The two gray wolves surrounded me from both of my flanks. Looks like they’re about to charge!

“Kuu~n”

I’m not going to be tricked by that sweet voice of yours…

But, at the same time, being attacked from both directions is dangerous! What should I do?

Ahh… What are you gonna do if you get your human-smell infested fur on me!?

What are you gonna do if I get the itch!?

Don’t play with my clean tail using your forelegs!

Don’t thrust your nose at me!

I know I smell good, but the only one allowed to touch this glossy fur is master!

Eei!

Take the white thing’s bone!

I threw the bone, the two grave wolves ran, and I left them in the dust.

I’ve gotten this far. It should only be a little longer till master.

I’m going to complain to master about those two’s bad behavior!

“Woof!”

When that sound entered my ears, I couldn’t help but look back.

The two gray wolves were running at full speed!

Ahh, master!!

I’m not good at running.

There’s an area surrounded by fences where there’s a lot of low ranked goons. I passed underneath those guys through their feet as I looked for master.

Master! Master! Where are you? I’ve come all this way, why won’t you show yourself, master?

“Woof!”

They’re near!

I can’t shake off the wolves!

I need to hurry up, and get on top of master’s lap now!

Here! He’s here!

There’s a two-legged thin one beside him, but I don’t care.

My special seat is free!

“Woof!”

Not good. They’ve almost caught up to me.

Master!

Ah, our eyes met.

What’s with that troubled gaze!?

Even I finally came out to meet you!

If you’re going to look at me like that, then I’m going to go––––

“Woof! Woof!”

––––Never mind, please save me after all, master!!

A magnificent jump to master! Followed by a splendid landing over the master’s lap.

Splendidly executed if I say so myself. Something on this level… surely the other two gray wolves wouldn’t be able to copy it, right–––!?

Just as I was happily thinking that to myself, the two gray wolves came jumping at me.

Uwa… aaa.. wawawa!

Master, do something!!

“Good grief… What is it now?” grumbled the master as he caught the two gray wolves in mid-air.

…Whew. Do you see? The master is my ally! If you’ve learned your lesson, then you better give me the respect I deserve!

Finally… I have arrived at my harbor.

I rolled into a curl over my master’s lap.

Fuu… This is my time of bliss. One that others can’t change.

If only master would pet me while praising my fur, then I wouldn’t be able to ask for anything more, but… Expecting something like that form this master is a bit much.

Sigh… I truly am generous.

“Reshia, I’m going to train, so I’ll leave this to you.”

W-Wait a moment, master!

Didn’t I just arrive at my harbor!?

As I was picked up, I was made to rest over the two-legged slender thing’s lap.

“Take care of it, alright.”
“Yes, gladly.”

W-What is this? What is this intimate atmosphere!?

M-Master… you c-couldn’t possibly be… cheating!?

Even though you have someone like me, you actually dared to bother with a furless, tailless human!?

Son of a bitch!

You know what I do to people like you? This!

“You seem to be in a bad mood today, huh, Hasu-san.”
“Uuu~!”

Humans… just like when they found me before, they look at you with a gaze like that of stone.

I hate you! You took master away from me!

Let me go! Let me go! Let go!

My resistance, fruitless, she carried me in her arms. Now that’s it come to this, I won’t be able to resist anymore.

“I know, I know… Let’s quietly watch over your master’s battle, alright?” We watched master fight as she held me in her arms.

Ohh, how strong, master. The lesser ones are being thrown one after another.

With my mood better, I didn’t hesitate to curl into a ball over my hated love rival’s lap.

Today was so tiring, too… I guess I should just go to sleep like this.

It would be great if I could play with master tomorrow.

Author’s Note:

A shocking revelation! The kobold, Hasu, was actually female!

To think the protagonist was actually too dense to realize it!


TL Note:

Chi’s probably Cynthia. Credits to an unlikely sociopath. 😀

The uuuU sound is just him whimpering. If you guys have any ideas how to present that sound better in English, please feel free to write it down in the comments.

    I guess with this is it obivous what gender that little kobold is…
    And it is just as obvious what will happen once the kobold evolves:

    Humanoid-ish appearance and a free ticket to Goblin King's Harem… meh.

    I don't think it counts as a donkan protagonist if he doesn't realize, ya know, a DOG is interested in him.
    Maybe she'll gain a human form with a later evolution though.
