Chapter 18: Female Knight Shirley

“Hmm, this is fine”

 When I came back to the mansion, I had my upper body stripped in the living room and treated myself .

 I removed the cloth that the maids had treated me with and created an armor to adhere around the wound with a ring linked to the Leviathan .

 The material, which feels like metal, but not metal, is a strange material, and I pressed it snugly around the wound to stop the bleeding .

 Then I turned my attention to the girl who had been brought back .

 The girl shrank back a little .

 She looks like a child who is scared of her parents’ anger – or something more .

“Anyway, let me hear your name . ”

“Oh …… Ah excuse me . ”

 The girl panicked, poof, got down on her knees and just said her name .

“My name is Shi-Shirley Glans,”

“Shirley . Your armor is pretty well made, did you make it yourself?”

“No, It’s been passed down for generations…… . um . ”

“Hmm, what?”

“My matter earlier……what will happen to that… . ”

“What matter?”

“That, for the crime of accidentally hurting His Imperial Highness… ……”

 Shirley gets down on her hands and knees and simply looks up .

 She looks extremely scared .

 I thought I told everyone not to worry about it earlier .

“That crime doesn’t exist . ”

“Huh? But in imperial law ……”

“That’s not true . I mean, if you’re guilty of accidentally hurting someone, it doesn’t exist . ”

“What kind of …… is that?”

 Shirley tilted her head .

“Stand up Shirley . ”


“Try that thrust again on me . ”

“Huh? But ……”

“If you are a knight, you need to follow orders . ”

“–Ha! Excuse me . ”

 Shirley stood up, drew her long sword and held it ready .

 Her expression changed drastically, her scared look was almost blown away, and she had an imposing face .

 As it was, she released a thrust with the spirit of a splendid shout of enthusiasm .

 It is a thrust that is no less than the time of the knight selection .

 I stopped it .

 Or rather a shield put out by Leviathan stopped it .

“This much is…… eh?”

 Shirley immediately noticed the “difference” .

 She was surprised to find that the shield that she could penetrate during the selection process wouldn’t budge at all .

“It doesn’t budge at all, does it?”

“Yes, even if I press–pull back!? This is …… amazing . ”

 It was as if the tip of the sword had been sucked into the shield, neither pushing nor pulling, and Shirley was taken aback by this .

“If I really wanted to prevent it, those attacks wouldn’t go through . So there’s no such thing as you did it ‘accidentally’ . I made it happen . ”


 Shirley was even more confused .

“A knight is supposed to follow orders . You’re a slave at best if you can’t follow orders to the letter . I’ve got a lot of plans, but I don’t want anyone in there trying to get in my face and not really bothering me in the first place . ”


“If I want slaves I would have collected them through the method one collect a slave . This time, I was selecting a knight . That’s what I mean . ”

“So, …… you have no regard for your own danger?”

“I wanted to know how people would react after hurting me . And even for the second time, you came for real on my orders . You passed . ”

“……, yes . ”

 Shirley nodded with a chuckle .

 She rolled her eyes and opened her mouth with a pout .

 Then she looked at me with impressed eyes .

“So, you’ve passed . Just to confirm, you intended to be my knight, correct?”

“Y-yes, sir!”

 Shirley hurriedly corrected her position, got down on one knee and bowed her head .

 This etiquette was rather – no, that’s the one in the plays .

 The formal etiquette of the aristocracy is not understood by the common people, it’s more passed down to the common people as something that looks good for a play or performance or something .

 Shirley gave that kind of knightly bow, the kind you do in plays .

“I, Shirley Grans . I pledge my lifelong loyalty to His Royal Highness the Prince . ”

 Again, this wasn’t an official sentence, but the feeling came through .

 My ability increases as I take in more subordinates .

 This increase in ability for me was much more important and easy to understand than proper or improper etiquette .

 Come to think of it, Shirley may have been the single individual who rose my abilities the most .

“I’m counting on you, Shirley”


 After the talk with Shirley was over, as if waiting for it, the serving maid brought in a doctor .

 A middle-aged man, fat and round, with a ratty mustache on his face .

 He’s a familiar face . He’s the court physician, His Imperial Physician .

 His name is Goode Croy, as I recall .

 Although his real name was Bade, he was a doctor, and His Majesty gave him the name Goode because it was too sinister . (TN: Well his name was literally Bad and now got changed to Good, I just added ‘e’ at the end to sound it better than just Good and Bad)

 That’s how much he is trusted by His Majesty for his medical skills .

“Even if you came, it’s an overreaction . ”

“Ha . Let’s see the wound . ”

“Ah . ”

 Since he came, I shouldn’t refuse him .

 All I did was stop the bleeding as a first aid measure anyway .

 I ordered Leviathan to release the armor that clings to my skin like an underclothing .

 An instant later, blood spurts out in a pushy spray .


“…… please be patient . ”

 Shirley gulped, but Goode, as expected of a doctor, looked at the mere non-life-threatening injuries at first glance, without moving an eyebrow .

“I will say . Luckily, the bones and tendons have been dislodged, so I hope you can keep the stitches . ”

“I see . Do it . ”

“Now, the anesthesia–“

“No, we’re in the middle of a conversation, so just do it quickly . ”


 Goode nodded to me as I sat in a relaxed manner and took out a suture needle and thread .

 Wiping the blood clean, he stitched together the skin’s surface .

 When he finished sewing the front, Goode looked up and stared at me .

“What’s the matter, do I have something on my face?”

“Well, No, I’ve never heard of anyone who didn’t change their expression with these sutures, let alone their voice . ”


“I’m impressed,”

 With that, Goode went behind me and started stitching there, too .

 Because Goode was gone from my sight, I saw Shirley, who had been hidden by the guy’s body, actually watching the stitching with great interest .

“What’s up Shirley?”

“Oh, uh, …… I thought doctors were great . ”


“I’ve never seen a treatment for a cut like this before . It’s the first time I’ve seen it . ”

“Have you never seen a doctor?”

“There is no doctor in the village . ”


 I raised an eyebrow .

“There’s no doctor in the village?”

“Yes . That …… is something wrong with it?”

“So what if people get hurt or sick?”

Asking Obabsama to pray for you, and paying her off for your sickness . “

” It s a common practice in poor villages . ”

 Goode interrupted me from behind .

 The fact that he was sighing probably meant that he felt bitter as a doctor .

“Hey Goode . ”

“Y-yes, W- what’s the matter?”

“How can one be a doctor,”

“Well, it is more common to be apprenticed to a doctor who is already in business or is already in practice . ”

“Are you also taking disciples?”

“Yes, some of them . ”



“Your first order . Bring a clever, hard-working boy from your village . ”

“Uh, ……?”

“Goode, I’ll provide you some apprentices . ”

“…… Yes, sir . ”

 After a pause for a breath, Goode nodded quietly behind me .

“Uh …… your highness? What on earth is ……”

 Shirley still can’t seem to grasp the situation and asks me fearfully

“I’ll pay for tuition and living expenses . Bring me the one who is going to be a doctor and treat everyone in the village . ”

“……, thank you!”

 Shirley hurriedly dropped to her knees and bowed to me as if she were on the ground .

 Knights don’t do it this way, so hey, I’ll have to teach her something .

 Shirley, who only looked up, stared at me with an increasingly respectful gaze .
