TruceIzayoi made her way through the rapidly darkening wilderness that surrounded her for the past few hours. Occasionally she tripped and fell, her travelling yukata getting caught up in a random twig and tearing. It has been the tenth day of her journey and her provisions were running dangerously low. Izayoi has already filled her bamboo flask with fresh stream water countless times but, being unable to hunt and provide for herself in the wilderness, lived on nuts and roots for the past three days.Truce by Arlome
Three months have passed since the human princess last seen the daiyoukai and much has changed in her young life since. For one thing, three weeks after he left her naked on her bedchamber floor she discovered that she was with child. After being violently ill and fatigued for seven days, Izayoi began to worry.

She had warmed up to a few of the younglings and had actually found that woman that had served her that evening. She held herself a couple huts down in one of the big residents. And from what Izayoi knew she used to stay with the younglings just a couple months back. The lady was the few that were requested to become a slave at such an older age.
"Few! 'Very' few if you ask me, Yori said that that was the first woman she trained that was her age since the span of 5 years," a young adult named Chi states. Along with another named Emi who was currently on toes with her.
"I thought there was one last year."
