The place the monster spawned this time was near mountains. There, I found another orc.
The orc let out a roar as he held up his sword. The nearby trees shook due to his pig-like voice and even the birds and the small animals fled.
Annoying as usual.
“Alright, Rouga. Can you do it?”
“What should I say?”
“For now, try asking him about what he was doing before he came here. That’s the best approach.”
Rouga stepped forward and started to talk with the orc.
It was a pretty strange spectacle to see a pig and wolf dog talking to each other, but at least the conversation seemed to be proceeding smoothly. I thought I could expect a good result.
I waited in excitement until Rouga finished talking with the orc and returned to me.
The orc to whom she had been talking was standing still in silence with his gaze fixed on me. Things seemed to be going well.
“I am done, Chief!”
“How is it?”
“Umm, he kept on saying something like ‘Bring the woman knight!’”
My eyes widened at Rouga’s unexpected report.
“What does that even mean? You guys were speaking for a while!”
“About that, no matter how much
I asked him he repeated the same line, ‘Bring the woman knight!’ ‘Bring the woman knight!’”
Well, I know that an orc and a woman knight could be a promised encounter in some doujinshi, but what did that have to do with the current situation?
“Why a woman knight?”
“It doesn’t seem like he knows the reason himself. Once he found himself here, his body started to desire a woman knightー”
What the heck was that? So this was an orc’s sexuality?
But what I wanted to know was not that but what happened before he came to this world.
“Ah, he also screamed something like ‘Who am I?!’”
So he didn’t remember either!
What a let-down after I had raised my expectations.
“And what did you say to him?”
“When I decided to listen to him, he asked me for a favour.”
What did he ask her? That explains why he was staring at me now.
I gazed back at the orc who was silently looking at me. His eyes brimmed with hope. Well, there was nothing I could do for you even if you did that.
“Nee- chief. Where can I find a woman knight?”
“There’s no woman knight in this age!”
Hearing my answer, Rouga replied with a
a “Okay!” and went back to the orc again.
His face gradually changed into one of shock and despair as the conversation advanced.
Soon after that, he let out a loud roar and raised his sword, rushing in my direction.
I was taken by surprise for a moment, but I recovered my composure right away and kicked his chin.
The orc was blown back and fell on his head. He then made a sorrowful sound before turning into light particles.
This was too sudden!
“Rouga, what did he say to you?”
“He started denying it when I told him there are no women knights, but once I told him that we’re in a different age he was like ‘Daaaaammmmiit!!!” and started running.”
It was just an outburst of anger then.
“And what did he say in the end?”
“‘I wanted to meet a woman… knight.’”
Just how badly did he want a woman knight to think about her until his last moment?!
Well, good look on finding one after spawning in a new world.
As I was wishing for the orc to meet a women knight in his next spawn, Rouga asked me, “Chiefー What are we going to do with the other monsters?”
“Hm? Ah, yeah. Let’s
yeah. Let’s try asking them too.”
Although, I wouldn’t say I was expecting much from them.
As I was lowering my hopes, we teleported to the next monster spawning place.
“So we couldn’t find anything.”

Finishing collecting information from the monsters around, I was laying on my bed while Rouga sat on top of me. In the end, none of the could remember anything about the past.
I may have asked the wrong creatures.
When we asked a goblin he started to ask for a female knight, when we asked a golem he started complaining about how bad the quality of our stone was and when it came to skeletons, all they did was say some incomprehensible stuff about insufficient nutrition.
You’re nothing but a mass of bones, why would you need nutrients?!
Are all monsters like this? If that’s the case then Rouga must be pretty intelligent.
She listens to what I say and doesn’t do anything troublesome. I’m glad I picked her.
“What is it… Chief?”
center style="margin-top:25px"> is it… Chief?”
“Nothing, I was just thinking that you’re pretty smart.”
Saying that, I went to gently stroke her head.
Although, she didn’t seem to understand why I was petting her, she still seemed happy about it and vividly waved her tail. How cute.
As I was admiring Rouga’s cuteness, the sound of the doorknob turning suddenly reached my ears.
“Nee, do you have a minute?”
Karen opened the door and intruded into my room. Today, she was wearing a ponytail. That suited her the best. But regardless of that, you should at least knock the door, my dear sister.
I was surprised by her sudden entrance, and Karen started looking around the room restlessly.
“Right now… wasn’t there something here?”
“You’re probably just imagining things.”
There was only me and Karen in this room. As for Rouga, she was in a different space I made using the【enslavement】skill.
The 【enslavement】 skill allowed one to confine one’s monster in a different space.
That was why, whenever someone got close to me, I ordered Rouga to enter the different space. Although, it had been a pretty close call this time around.
It was really convenient how smart is Rouga was.
“And what did you want?”
“Ah, un. Actually, I need a little advice.”
