Ohkuninushi

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

I've got to go now. Thank you for everything.

Ohnamuchi went out the room quietly so that Susanoh didn't wake up. He put a gigantic rock in front of the door. It seemed like it needed about five hundred men to be carried.

He went straight to Susanoh's room and took his sword, his bow, and his Japanese harp. After that he sneaked into Sureri's room like a thief.

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Are you here, Suseri?

He had already changed his clothes for the departure. When Suseri realised it, she felt a little sad.

Suseri

Suseri

Ohnamuchi...What's going on? What are you doing?

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Look. I can become the king of this country if I have this sword and this bow. And I'll get some advices from the Celestial Plain through this harp.
I want to rule this country. I don't want to leave it to my fucking brothers.

Suseri

Suseri

Are you going soon?

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Yes. I'll go back to Izumo with you. Will you marry me?

She was stunned. Onhamuchi couldn't find whether she was glad or sad when she heard his words.

Suseri

Suseri

But...

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Your Dad loves you too much. It's as plain as day! He'll never let you go!

Suseri

Suseri

.......

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

I love you more than he does. I'm kidnapping you, honey. You might not be able to run fast, so I'll carry you on my back. Come on, before your Dad realises all of this.

He bended in front of her.

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Please... Please come with me.

She seemed like she was hesitating. He felt as if it was a long, long period.
In the end, he could see her reaching out her hand onto his shoulder.

Suseri

Suseri

Ohnamuchi, thank you. I'm very pleased.

She rode on his back.

He thought that she was heavier than he had expected, but didn't mention it. Meanwhile, he became lighter spiritually.

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Good! Are you ready?

He dashed to the slope of Hades.

While he was running, something dropped on his shoulders. They were Suseri's tears. He felt a little guilty because he forced her to make a big decision of leaving home and going with him in just a moment.
When she raised her head in order to look back at her house one more time, the harp bumped with a tree and made a loud sound.

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!"

They heard someone screaming far away.

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Oh my god!! The sound seemed to wake Mr.Susanoh up!! His scream is like a beast!! He must get furious!!

Suseri

Suseri

Sorry, Ohnamuchi. I touched the harp. I didn't realise the tree was there.

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

No worry! Hang in there!

"Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh!!"

The next scream was quite strange.

Suseri

Suseri

What? What happened to Dad?

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

I tied Mr.Susanoh's hair to the column tightly. So he can't move for a while. Let's hurry!

However they heard Susanoh's voice soon.

Susanoh

Susanoh

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaait!! Fucking sissy maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Wow!! How quickly was that!! I also put a gigantic rock in front of the door...didn't it work for him at all?

Suseri

Suseri

Oh...On my Dad's head, there is...

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Yeah, can you see that? I put a ribbon as a token of my appreciation. It's cute, isn't it?

Suseri

Suseri

Err...no...There is a column. He seemed to have pulled out the whole column...

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Seriously!? That's impossible!

They managed to arrive at the bottom of the slope. He kept on running up the slope as fast as he could.
When Susanoh reached the top of the slope, he found Ohnamuchi and Suseri. But they've already gone too far to catch them up. Susanoh screamed.

Susanoh

Susanoh

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh!! Damn it!!

Though they were quite far away, Susanoh's voice was loud enough to frighten Ohnamuchi and Suseri.

Susanoh

Susanoh

Oi!! Ohnamuchi!! Shit!! Fuck!! I've already given up!! I've given up on catching you, so stop!! Stop and listen to me!!

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

What? But...it is so frightening to face you even if you said so....!

Susanoh

Susanoh

Stop talking and listen!!

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Ye...Yes, Sir!

Susanoh

Susanoh

.........Err....You know....I.......I'll allow you to marry Suseri.

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Re...really?? Thank you!! Dad!!!

Susanoh

Susanoh

Keep on listening!! If you really marry her, you must make your half-brothers leave Izumo and start ruling the country. The sword and the bow will help you. They are my presents for your marriage. Go ahead!

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Thank you, Sir!!

Susanoh

Susanoh

And....you should change your name. Ohnamuchi sounds a bit sissy. I'll give you a new name. It's Ohkuninushi! From now on you are Ohkuninushi!

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

Ohkuninushi......Thank you for giving me such a great name.

Susanoh

Susanoh

Mt.Uga is good for your new house. Make sure that Suseri lives a happy life, you bastard!

Ohnamuchi

Ohnamuchi

I promise! Thank you for everything!

Ohnamuchi who now became Ohkuninushi bowed down and rushed to Izumo.

Soon after they arrived at Izumo, Ohkuninushi could chase off his brothers easily. Before he himself had realised it, he became quite strong through the challenges given by Susanoh.

They made a big house at the foot of Mt.Uga, and started enjoying their honeymoon period.
Then they lived happily ever after...

You might expect such words, but there is one more episode.

line

Surprisingly enough, Ohkuninushi visited Inaba to see Princess Yakami as soon as their new house was built.

Ohkuninushi

Ohkuninushi

Hello. I'm Ohkuninushi from Izumo. Is Princess Yakami here?

Then Yakami appeared. Her beauty was out of the world as said by the legend.

Yakami

Yakami

Ohkuninushi...? You must be Ohnamuchi. Did you really come to see me?

Ohkuninushi

Ohkuninushi

Yes. I wanted to see you and...

Yakami

Yakami

I'm so impressed. I heard you had died...and you married another lady in Uga. To be honest, I couldn't stand still, but I didn't expect you to come here.

Ohkuninushi was so glad to see her smiling. What else could be better than the smile of a beautiful lady?

Ohkuninushi

Ohkuninushi

Well...Actually I came here to marry you. We were engaged, weren't we?

Yakami

Yakami

Eh? Haven't you already got married? Is it OK if I come to Uga?

Ohkuninushi

Ohkuninushi

Why not? Fortunately, this country is polygynous so far.

Yakami

Yakami

But...

Ohkuninushi

Ohkuninushi

You were my first crush...even though we haven't met before.

Yakami

Yakami

Ohkuninushi...

Ohkuninushi

Ohkuninushi

Come on, honey.

He pulled her arm and started kissing her. It was almost the same as what he had done at the first sight of Suseri.

A boy who was bullied by mean brothers became strong after facing his death and some challenges, and started beating the enemies.... It sounded like a juvenile success story.

However he started being famous not as a juvenile hero, but as a shallow woman chaser.
