During the encounter with Gouetsu... Masahiro yells at Guren for taking so long before transforming and calls him "Mokkun" instead.
G: ......Don't call me Mokkun. When I'm in this form, it's Guren.
M: Mokkun's good enough. I just lost 10 years off my life.
G: I see, then you've got another 90 years to spare.
After the enounter with Gouetsu, while at work...
While rubbing his sleepy eyes, Masahiro glanced at the mononoke and sighed. "You're talking a lot today, aren't you?"
The mononoke stood on his hind legs and put his hand on his hip, "It's to make sure you don't get bored and fall asleep. You should be thankful."
The mononoke who'd been looking up at the ceiling looked down when he heard that dull sound. Masahiro's shoulders were shaking as he sat with his face buried in his desk.
"Hey, no falling asleep while I'm talking to you!"
Masahiro winced as the mononoke patted him on the shoulder. Masahiro raised his face with his hand pressed against his forehead, "...Mokkun, your concern truly pains me," he said weakly.
"Here I am trying to get you to forget all those troubles while you're at work, but you just ignore it huh? Can you even think clearly when your that sleep-deprived in the first place?"
"What's that, Mokkun? You mean that was also part of showing concern for me? ......You're a good person."
"......Although I'm not a person."
"You're a good mononoke."
"Like I said, don't call me a mononoke."
"You're a good Mokkun."
Until the previous day, Yoshimasa didn't know in what way Touda was staying by Masahiro. So when Touda appeared before him in the form of a mononoke, he was quite surprised and couldn't help thinking incredulously, 'This is Touda? That's impossible!'
When asked "why Touda?" Seimei wouldn't answer that, but just smiled and said, "you'll understand soon enough".
--Perhaps he simply deserved to be called Seimei's grandson.
Remembering the mononoke's words, Yoshimasa smiled slightly.
Ever since being born into the world, his elder brother Yoshihira and himself had never once been called "Seimei's son" by Touda. Likewise Touda never called his elder brother's children and his other children "Seimei's grandson".
When going to visit the minor demons...
"Mokkun, they don't realise your true self, huh?"
"Well, yeah. It won't do anything to show them my true self either... uwah"
The mononoke stared for a moment before hurriedly moving away from Masahiro's hand.
"Mokkun? --, Waa!"
"You saved yourself didn't you, Mokkun."
"Forgive me. I like myself."
After Banban's attack
"They keep taking more of us, we no longer have anywhere to run. Please, get rid of him!"
The ayakashi were desperate. Masahiro could clearly see that.
The mononoke felt that something was off, and couldn't help coldly considering the matter. Up until now, has an onmyouji ever been asked by ayakashi to hunt down a monster?
"...I get the feeling there hasn't."
Anyhow, time to get back to Kokumono and Shoumyou 3. ^o^
