“Are you going to come out or not?”

“I'm not coming out!”

“Have you seen my palm? If you don't want this palm to land on your butt, you'd better let go of the pillar and come out with me right now!”

“I won't come out even if I die!”

As Mrs.
Fujimaru watched the stubborn Shirou cling tightly to the pillar, a headache began to form.
When she brought Shirou back from the police station, Mrs.
Fujimaru noticed the marks on the back of his right hand.
She was not a magician so Mrs.
Fujimaru was unaware of the existence of magic.
Therefore, she had no knowledge of the Holy Grail War or the seals.
To her, the marks on Shirou's hand seemed like a tattoo similar to those used by cults.
This was because, when the police had found Shirou, they had also discovered a magic circle on the ground that seemed to have been drawn in blood, as if it were the result of some cult ceremony.

As a mother, Mrs.
Fujimaru doesn't want her son to have tattoos or anything that might make him seem like a delinquent.
She had been hesitant to bring up the issue before because she was afraid that Shirou might still be struggling with negative emotions.
However, after living with him for a few days and seeing that he didn't seem to be affected by any negative feelings, Mrs.
Fujimaru decided that it was time to take Shirou to the tattoo shop and have the red tattoo removed.

Shirou, of course, refused to go out, and he only wanted to stay at home and survive until his father's work was finished and then escape from Fuyuki City.

Unfortunately, a child's wishes are often disregarded by their mother, even if the child's thoughts and actions seem mature.
But because Shirou has the Saint Graph fusion, which makes him much stronger than an adult in terms of physical strength, it is only natural that Mrs.
Fujimaru is unable to physically force Shirou to do as she wishes, as he is a Servant with the physical strength attribute of E, even if it is at the lowest end of the scale.
A normal person would not be able to overpower him.

This makes Fujimaru Chiyo very depressed, and she can only threaten him loudly, “Are you going to come out or not?”

To which Shirou stubbornly replies, “I won't come out even if I die!”

For the sake of his life, Shirou is also stubborn.

Fujimaru is feeling completely helpless in this situation.
Despite her tough exterior, she has never hit a child, and at most will only scold them loudly.
This may be due to her own early experiences.
She doesn't know how to be a parent and doesn't have a model to follow in learning how to raise a child.
While she wants to give Shirou as much love as possible, she doesn't know how to express it or how to effectively discipline him.
If Shirou's mother from his past life were here, she might have slapped him by now.

When a child doesn't listen, it is often because they have not received enough discipline, and a good scolding can help to set them straight.
Fortunately, Shirou is an adult soul, and his previous personality was also quite good, so he has not strayed from the right path.

Sakura encouraged Shirou, saying, “Brother, Sakura will go to the tattoo shop with you.
So you must also gather your courage and try to go out!” Like the Fujimaru couple, Sakura thought that Shirou was still afraid of the outside world due to his encounter with the serial killer and had shadows in his heart.
However, the truth was that Shirou was actually a little afraid of the outside world because of the Fourth Holy Grail War.

Tattoo shop?


How did he not think of that!

The idea of going to a tattoo shop to cover up the curse occurred to Shirou, and he immediately stopped resisting and became very cooperative.
This left Mrs.
Fujimaru speechless, as she thought to herself, “It's really, with a little sister, forget the mother…”

Fujimaru shook her head at the strange turn of events, but was happy that Shirou had become much more cooperative.
Before they left, she made him put on gloves to hide the tattoo from view.
As a mother, she didn't want anyone to see her child with a tattoo.
Shirou himself wanted to hide the tattoo even more than Mrs.
Fujimaru did, as it was a matter of life and death for him!

A family of three, consisting of a mother, a brother, and a sister, walked out of their house and headed towards the tattoo shop.
Under normal circumstances, such a happy family would attract a lot of attention as they walked down the street.
However, the current atmosphere is one of indifference, with people rushing about and minding their own business, as if the cold wind of Siberia was blowing through the streets.

It is understandable that people are not paying attention to the family, as the current economic recession has created a sense of anxiety and fear that hangs over everyone like a Sword of Damocles.
Under such circumstances, people are likely to focus all their energy on their own problems and have little spare energy to pay attention to others.

However, there is a pair of eyes that have been watching Shirou from the moment he walked out of the house.

“The new flame has disappeared.
It has finally turned into a purebred hybrid.” There is no disappointment or anger in the speaker's voice.
The golden king, standing on the tower and looking down at the earth below, has long been accustomed to these kinds of things.

The soul of a child is as pure as snow, but as they go through life and are exposed to the mottled world around them, they may become contaminated with seeds of ignorance.
This can cause the soul to become a disgusting hybrid.

And hybrids, no matter how you teach them, won't be able to learn.
No matter how you guide them, they will still fall into ignorance.
It doesn't matter how much effort is wasted.

Disappointment is an emotion that has long disappeared from the golden king.
Because the golden king has given up hope.

Without hope, where is the disappointment?

“Hmph.” With an arrogant laugh, the golden king gradually disappeared.

He saw through the true identity of the child named “Shirou” and was aware of the fact that he had fused with the Saint Graph.

However, he did not take action.

Mongrels are just mongrels.
It's dirtying his hands to take the initiative and treat them seriously.

But if a mongrel dared to spy on his treasure, then the punishment of the king will surely come!

“Hmm?” Shirou paused, scanning his surroundings.

“Is something the matter, big brother?” Sakura noticed Shirou's hesitation and inquired.

“No, it's nothing,” Shirou shook his head and resumed walking.

Shirou felt a sense of confusion wash over him.
A moment ago, he had distinctly felt as though he was being watched, but upon looking around, he saw no one.
Additionally, the sensation of being watched hadn't carried any malicious intent and quickly dissipated.
But as a participant in the fourth Holy Grail War, Shirou is very sensitive to this.

Could it be that he was discovered by someone else?

Shirou wasn't sure what was happening, but he knew that Fuyuki City was becoming increasingly dangerous.
Going on a trip wouldn't be enough; it would be best if they could move.
But before making any plans, he needed to go to the tattoo shop and have the curse covered up.

Arriving at the tattoo shop, the owner was very polite.
After asking about the request, he carefully began to help Shirou deal with the curse on his hand.

It was just that –

what is this?” The tattoo shop owner was perplexed.
No matter what he tried, whether it was milk or a repair solution, the usual methods for repairing tattoos were useless against this tattoo.
No matter what he did, the tattoo would appear again.

Shirou was disappointed.
As expected, ordinary methods were useless for this unscientific magical creation.

I'm still too young!

However, a significant issue has now arisen.
As the curse cannot be physically covered up, anyone who sees it becomes aware of its unusual nature.
It is only natural that this kind of abnormal, irreparable situation would draw attention, as no one could simply ignore it.

Fortunately, before the situation could escalate, Shirou used “Suggestion” to deceive the tattoo shop owner, his mother, Sakura, and the others.

Even Sakura was not spared!

Although Shirou has not formally studied magic, the Heroic Spirit Emiya Shirou was skilled in traditional magic.
Therefore, young Shirou, who inherited Emiya Shirou's Saint Graph, has also naturally learned it.

After using the Suggestion, Shirou quickly put on gloves to prevent any incidents.
When returning home, he used Suggestion on Fujimaru and Sakura again, making them ignore the Seals on his hand.

When Shirou learned that his seal was known to others, he considered using Suggestion to cover it up.
However, too many people were already aware of it, and the news had spread too far for him to effectively contain it.
In the end, it would be best to simply flee.

Just as Shirou decided to stay at home until Fujimaru finished his work and then, under the guise of a trip, fled Fuyuki City with his family, Mr.
Fujimaru hurriedly ran back home and urgently ordered Shirou and others, “Chiyo, Shirou, and Sakura, put on your clothes.
We're going out to eat tonight!”
