Tonan no Tsubasa (44)

As explained in chapter 25 of A Thousand Leagues of Wind, an allotment is a land grant given to every eligible citizen when they come of age. Technically, it's a lease, as it can't be inherited and the kingdom reclaims the property when the owner dies.

In A Thousand Leagues of Wind (here and here), Shushou still treats Kyouki pretty much the same way. But it's not like he can't take it; unlike most kirin, he's described as a big, burly guy.

Love your translations! And Shushou's character is so adorable. Almost impetious. It seems that the Kirin and emporer/emporess personalities tend to be complimentary. A Yin for a Yang.

Yeah, Shushou's really adorable. And this story really shows why she dislikes Shoukei in the fourth novel. She cannot respect people who just stands by not doing anything while something bad is going on.
