Hi caca! How does a gust of wind stands for “purging embarassment” and implies that they stayed in the inn? Sorry, I’m by no means trying to question your translation skills, but I’m a language nerd and wont stop thinking about it >.<
Yo love! No worries :) Japanese is vague, lol, so it always happens that people want explanations on the translations. So basically the last paragraph’s gust of wind was specifically stated to be ‘out-of-season’ to let us know that the wind was unnatural, and since the paragraph before that had Temari taking out her fan, that lets us know that she was the person who caused the gust of wind.
Her smile at Shikamaru was genuinely affectionate (and, before that, peaceful and relieved) after she understood the misunderstanding, so you know she didn’t create the gale out of anger. It was specifically mentioned that she only took out her tessen when Shikamaru had realised/asked about what she had misunderstood, so you can gather that she’s embarrassed about her misunderstanding and that taking out her tessen and making a gust of wind is her way of dealing with it. Basically relieved but embarrassed Temari + wind = Temari did the wind to deal with the embarrassment.
The possible implication that they did end up staying to check out the inn for naruhina is since 1- the wind lasted the entire night –without actually damaging anything, mind you, just scaring everyone lol– and Temari can usually control her wind. So if she’d left the area, her wind likely would’ve been cut off too. So that implies she was still in the area the whole night, and her embarrassment was being purged with the wind till morning, and 2- there wouldn’t really be any reason for Temari not to stay now that she and Shikamaru are on the same page and smiling at each other, lol. She’d probably feel responsible to help him on his quest, ahah.
