“Aniki, where are we heading to?” (Reus)
Reus was probably happy, he was shaking his tail while easily carrying the men who were tied up altogether.
In the case of me taking a separate action, I usually order him to return together as Emilia’s escort. He is probably happy because I asked him to come together with me.
He breaths roughly as if he will do anything, but I think your turn hardly comes this time.
“From now, we’re going to the men’s hideout, but you do not do anything and stay behind me.” (Sirius)
“I don’t really mind, but are you going to do it alone, Aniki?” (Reus)
“Ah… it seems you are somehow misunderstood, but I will not going to crush the hideout. I’m going to have a talk.” (Sirius)
“Eh!? Even if it is the hideout of these guys?” (Reus)
Reus was sending a despised look on the men. It was because that they were the people who kidnapped a silver wolfkin who was similar as him. So, it can’t be help for him to feel angry about it.
However, based on the earlier conversations, the ‘Daughtress’, which these men belonged to, is highly unlikely to be related, and I guess these guys are the bad ones. It will be never end if you annihilate their organization when only looking at the bad things done by the underlings.
Although Reus can be seen having a reckless nature, he is by no means stupid.
As for things that catch attention, I have to make him understand that it’s not good to knock down only on one end…
“When all are solved by annihilate everything with strength, it is similar to Lior who crushes thieves, you know?” (Sirius)
“That is no good! I will pay attention, Aniki.” (Reus)
It is a fact, so I won’t apologize, old man.
Even if Reus understood, I explained my intention this time, and told him to observe from behind me.
“It is easy to annihilate, but I want you to know that there is such world. Anyway, this is probably become necessary for you, and there is no loss to learn it.” (Sirius)
“Seeing is also training! Got it.” (Reus)
While calming down the excited Reus, we entered a back alley that was slightly away from the slum. There was a small tavern which was built to be inconspicuous. I’ve been looking for the Daughtress’ hideout yesterday.
I hadn’t entered the bar yet, but we seemed to be observed like a gaze by a man who was sitting and drinking on chairs near the entrance, and from a man who was hiding in the surrounding building. Well, that is normal if you carry five men who are their accomplices.
“Aniki… there are two people. I checked it through both my nose and their presence, and I don’t think there is a mistake.” (Reus)
“That is correct.” (Sirius)
When we approached the bar while expecting those hidden people with low voice, the lone man who sat in front of the bar stood up and came close to us with sake.
“Oi oi, what are such children doing in this kind of place…?” (??)
The appearance of unsteadily walking was exactly like a drunk… but that was a pretend. There was no doubt that he was drunk because of sake, but I could properly see something reasonable from his eyes. I see, is this a stirring up the outsiders?
“No, no, I have something important to talk inside. Aah, you have a dirt on you, you know.” (Sirius)
I pretended to brush the other person’s sleeve, and let him hold a copper coin in hand. The drunk got off my nose and separate himself from me. He sat again and began drinking.
The reason for him to pick up a fight was to make visitors feel timid. A copper coin is like an entrance fee.
We entered the bar without getting picked on, but as expected, there weren’t a lot of people since it was past afternoon. There were a lot of tables lined up with several people were sitting on it. When we were heading to the counter for the shopkeeper, Reus asked me in a whisper.
“Aniki, are they really these men’s accomplices? The people nearby are not attacking us though…” (Reus)
“If they make a noise in this place, won’t they expose that here is their hideout? And it is a lot worst if they attack us here. Prepare yourself, alright?” (Sirius)
Or, there is a possibility that these men are not important enough to make a noise for the organization.
There was no mistake that this was a hideout from the mood of the tavern and the presences of people. Then, I placed a silver coin on the counter and ordered. By the way, Reus was curiously looking around.
“Master, one Daughtream and Resslite please.” (Sirius) (TLN: It’s Daught-ress, the raw says ドートリアム&レスリート )
“We don’t have that in the house.” (Bartender)
“Eight Daughtream then.” (Sirius)
“…Wait a sec.” (Bartender)
In this bar, there are several peculiar drinks to this town, and they are not listed in the menu among them but those two are the secret password of wanting a meeting with the organization. Based on the information of the store, the amount of Daughtream ordered play major role of the purpose of the meeting.
To tell the truth, I wanted to reply with ‘Ten’, but since the worst was avoided, I made it ‘Eight’. The bartender returned after going inside for a while, and then we were guided by the employee to the back door.
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
As I got off a dim staircase, there were several doors lined up side by side, and I entered one of them. It was a dreary room with two sofas and one desk, but I could see several people lurked in the dark and the shade. This made me remember ‘Melissa’, the organization which I sold the gems of ‘Jewel Turtle’ when I was a child.
A man was already sitting on one of the sofa, so I sat on the other sofa, and Reus went back behind me after putting down the men on the floor.
There was absolutely no disdain in the eyes of the man who looked at me. As I expected, when it becomes the internal of the organization, they seems to be different from those foolish.
“You are as young as I heard. What kind of business do you have for us?” (??)
“There is one thing before we start talking about it. The truth is we came to return them because we were involved with the accomplices over there.” (Sirius)
“Haa? Aah… they surely are accomplices. I don’t remember them that much. Are those recently joined the organization?” (??)
When the man sitting on the sofa called a woman behind him, she checked the paper he had and nodded. She was probably a secretary.
“It is confirmed that they recently joined. However, since I didn’t see them after they joined, I thought they died.” (??)
“Is that so? They caused an inconvenience to us, but we deliberately came to return them, how about that? Would you pay up for the settlement?” (Sirius)
At that moment, the men, who were lurking around, seethed. Reus reflexively drew his sword, but I signaled him with a line of sight to suppress the alertness. You can’t act violently on bloodlust level, you know.
“I don’t need anything about money. From here on is the main question. I want to request information from you.” (Sirius)
Request for information? Have we become that low to give information to outsiders, huh? Well, what kind of information?” (??)
“I also want to inform you… that those men kidnapped silver wolf tribe?” (Sirius)
The man stood up in surprise and looked down on his accomplices lying down on the floor. His calm demeanor until just now disappeared. He was looking here as if he couldn’t believe it, but since there was a silver wolfkin, Reus, stood behind me, he didn’t think that it was a lie.
“Oi! Wake them up!” (??)
When the man gave the instruction, the stood by woman poured a jug of water, and clapped the cheeks to wake them up. That was considerably extreme, but judging from the situation, it’s not that I don’t understand.
“Aughh… Lea-leader?” (??)
“You… No, it doesn’t matter anymore. Oi, what did you do to that child over there?” (D Leader) (TLN: Simplifying Daughtress Leader as D Leader)
“Aa… aah! Yeah, leader! The brat was a hindrance! It was a chance to earn a lot of money!” (??)
“How did you intend to make money? Answer me.” (D Leader)
“It was silver wolf tribe! There was a guy who made a direct request to us, and he said he would pay fifty gold coins if we bring a female silver wolfkin!” (??)
“…And, did you, by any chance, kidnapped them?” (D Leader)
“I discovered them out by chance when I was looking in a forest. After that, when we got back to the town, the female ran away. When we chased her, the brat over there…” (??)
“I had enough. Go to sleep.” (D Leader)
Far from having the leader to confirm, the man easily confessed and validated that my information was true. The flabbergasted leader kicked the man’s face and let him slip again. And then, he sat on the sofa while sighing.
“Damn it, are these idiots surely outsiders?” (D Leader)
“Yes, they are. They arrived from other continent the other day. Could it be that these guys didn’t learn about the rules…” (D Secretary)
“Damn it! Send them away immediately…” (D Leader)
The reason why the leader was panicking was… that a silver wolfkin was kidnapped by force.
Silver wolf tribe is a tribe that regards families and friends more than anything else, and the bond with same tribe is strong. It is said that once they get married, they will never be apart again.
It seemed there was a royalty of a certain country abducted silver wolfkins that they wanted for in the past, but apparently, the silver wolf tribe assaulted the country in order to recover their fellow and family.
The silver wolf tribe generally has high physical abilities, but the numbers of warriors seemed low. They were somehow managing to do it with the difference in numbers, but the country was weakening because of huge damage, and the war triggered again when the crime of the royalty were exposed, and the country was eventually destroyed.
Since then, to carry off the silver wolfkin against their will is considered a taboo, and if they walk together with someone, they must have a deep bond with the person himself and they recognize them as a family.
That is why the slave merchant who spoke to us in the town said ‘You manage them well’ at me. If the bond is created even as slave, you won’t be attacked because you will be seen as nothing but same family.
It is a widely handed down story on Adlode Continent, but they appeared to have failed in various ways when listening to the conversation between the leader and the woman.
If the matter is left as it is, the silver wolf tribe will probably attack the town to get back their kidnapped friends within a few days, so the leader’s impatience is reasonable.
Since he understood the present situation, I moved on to the next talk.
“I am sorry for you to be impatient, but we had defeated your accomplices for that reason, and protected the silver wolfkin. Can I treat your organization as not picking a fight with them?” (Sirius)
“Yeah, got it. We were rather saved. If you had left them alone, there was also the possibility of giving the silver wolfkin to the client before we know it. If that happens, it might have been too late to send them back.” (D Leader)
“That is true, isn’t it? So, I have a request, will you let me send the silver wolfkin back?” (Sirius)
“…What is your reason for this?” (D Leader)
“The guy who stands behind me is a silver wolfkin. Due to a certain reason, I picked him up, grew up together, and now he has become an importance existence. He is worried. Won’t that become a reason for him to make a move for his same tribe?” (Sirius)
My real intention is only to go to the silver wolf tribe’s settlement, but there is no mistake in the saying since the siblings have already become indispensable existences for me. Of course, Reese and Hokuto too, they are my important companions.
Reus was quietly watching, but he desperately holding on because he almost cry after listening to my words. However, since the tail was moving intensely, it was such pointless worry.
“I will leave the town tomorrow morning, and head for their settlement. The kidnapped silver wolfkin will be the guide, and explain the situation to other family members to prevent the attack. How about that, it is bad mutual discussion, isn’t it?” (Sirius)
“Isn’t there a possibility of you to run away with that silver wolfkin? And, it is not hard for the same tribe to deepen their relationship.” (D Leader)
“If that’s the case, it is not necessary for us to come here, right? The reasons we came here are to inform you and solve the matter.” (Sirius)
“Even if you don’t say it, I already plan to do it.” (D Leader)
I came here mainly to let Reus get the experience, but there are two other reasons.
First is to give warning for what I have said earlier.
Daughtress is an underworld society, but they are keeping some rules to certain extent. In addition, there is also another side of them as to keep the order of the town so that the wickedness from other place won’t spread here. I thought it was regrettable to be annihilated because of a stupid mistake.
Another thing is to deal with the culprit.
The ones that kidnapped the silver wolfkin are those guys, who are lying over there, but there is a problem because in the first place, it is a taboo to kidnap them in regards of Adlode continent.
There is a possibility that the same person will appear if I leave this out, so I definitely should check it out. Since there are silver wolfkins among my companion, it is better to get rid of the weeds that caught my eyes.
I don’t mind doing it, but I will leave the town tomorrow, and I should entrust the matter to them to regain their honor because they have put the town in danger.
“The client is either not a person from Adlode, a noble or someone higher who is interested in the silver wolf tribe. So, you have aimed until certain extent, am I right?” (Sirius)
“You’re right; I will teach and stop that fool as a favor. Actually, I already made a contact with him. A foolish noble came in contact a few days ago and informed his interest of having a silver wolfkin. Of course, I refused by explaining the reason, but that fool couldn’t get it.” (D Leader)
According to his additional explanation, the noble was an aristocrat from a different continent. It seemed that he wanted a silver wolfkin to the degree that he came all the way to the Adlode continent. It was unfortunate that he couldn’t understand the reason.
In the end, the noble didn’t give up. He indiscriminately shouted for suitable adventurer, and searched for anyone who would accept the request. I thought there are no fools who would accept it in this continent, but it seemed the Daughtress won’t remain indifferent and they planned to make a move.
“Since he would cause a problem, I thought of giving him a warning since they would abduct before long, but let alone I didn’t know that my underlings accept the request, I didn’t think they would be caught one soon” (D Leader)
“I can say nothing but bad luck in various ways. So, how are you guys going to handle the noble and leave the kidnapped silver wolfkin to us?” (Sirius)
“…It can’t be helped I guess. When I think about it, you probably don’t want to see your human accomplices are kidnapped, so it is best to leave it to you to have the same family to bring them. Make sure you deliver them, alright?” (D Leader)
“Please leave it to me. I will excuse myself since I have nothing more to discuss.” (Sirius)
I received their pledge, so I should leave it to the other side afterwards.
When we were leaving since the discussion was over, the leader threw a silver and a copper coins, and I grabbed them in the midair.
“I have a principle not to have a debt to the outsiders. I return the entrance fee so far, I will return it as information because you provide me the information.” (D Leader)
As expected, it seems that his character is someone who settles the debt on the spot. It is worthwhile to give information and give advice.
“There are bad adventures gathered around the nobles that we talked about earlier. Therefore, you should walk around the downtown all day today. After that… you got it, right?” (D Leader)
“I was expecting it, but they are acting swiftly, isn’t it?” (Daughtress Leader)
“That’s how much they want the silver wolf tribe. Good grief, I wish the channel that enthusiasm to something else. Aah, our companion is not included, you know. Either way, even if there is, such foolish won’t know what will happen.” (D Leader)
“Understood. Well then, I won’t hesitate.” (Sirius)
“Do whatever you want. Oi! Make those fools vomit everything. Since you don’t have to hold back.” (D Leader)
The debt was settled, and we won’t see that leader anymore. Since he kicked the lying down men and gave order to other guys, Reus and I left the Daughtress’ hideout.
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
After we got out of the hideout, even if the pedestrian walk became bigger, Reus finally breathed out and untie the tension. As expected, it seemed he wasn’t used to watch things in silent.
“Reus, it is alright if you do that like normal. So, what do you think about the interaction with the organization?” (Sirius)
I am really happy when you said that I am an important existence.” (Reus)
“No, it’s not that. Did you understand that there is other way to solve things other than act violently?” (Sirius)
“Yeah. It was very difficult things for me, but I understood that there are various things that can be done other than just annihilating.” (Reus)
It seems that the conversation with the underworld organization was difficult for him, but Reus seemed to learn something. He was walking next to me and laughing while showing teeth.
“Don’t just kill them just because they are bad guys. Unless they are obvious fools after thinking a bit, I will cut them.” (Reus)
“This time, it is enough to understand it. Remember, the road that you are going to walk will require various experiences. That is why I brought you with me, but there is no need to be impatient. One step at a time. You will learn and grow up for sure.” (Sirius)
“Yes! I will fulfill Aniki’s expectations.” (Reus)
It is because he was together with Lior, he would crush evil by instinct. However, Lior’s instinct is not similar as Reus’s, so I can’ said that it is a mistake to crush by leaving it to his instinct. He is a child who has difficulties in making subtle adjustment.
“But, Aniki. What were you going to do if those guys didn’t listen to Aniki’s proposal, and attacked us?” (Reus)
“In that situation, I would crush them. There is no need to hold back at an organization that doesn’t understand the situation and is greedy.” (Sirius)
“As expected of Aniki.” (Reus)
“It is different if we are the bad ones, but I won’t forgive them if they aim at us with no reason, you know.” (Sirius)
“Aniki is somewhat similar to silver wolf tribe, huh?” (Reus)
“Oi oi, I don’t have wolf ear’s on me.” (Sirius)
While walking together with Reus, who happily wagged his tail, we returned to the inn.
We had two double rooms for the inn, but Emilia changed it to quadruple room. By the way, Hokuto stood by at the stable to watch for the carriage. I saw his situation a while ago, and he really is a wolf that looks like a messenger of a God. He was also revered by the several horses in the stable.
We entered the inn, and when I knocked the door of the room where the mother and son were resting, Emilia immediately opened it and showed me inside.
“Welcome back, Sirius-sama.” (Emilia)
“We’re back. We are done. So, how about them?” (Sirius)
“They calmed down after we explained about ourselves, and they are resting after Reese’s treatment was over. Anyway, I would like to say thank you Sirius-sama.” (Emilia)
“The ones who found them were you guys, not me. Anyhow, shall we talk?” (Sirius)
When I entered the room, the mother, who lied down on the bed, raised her upper body, and lowered her head at me. Reese and the child sat on the next bed, and they were eating together the skewered meats that were bought at a stall. Their relationship seemed good because they were having fun, talking about the deliciousness of the skewered meat. Was this also because of Reese’s virtue?
I was prepared to be glared because they were attacked by humans, but it seems we don’t have to worry by looking at the expression of the mother and the child.
“Thank you very much for this time. Thanks to everyone, this child and I were saved.” (SW Mother)
“The ones who helped you are these two, not me, you know.” (Sirius)
“No. I heard from Emilia that we weren’t the only ones to be rescued, but the two companions over there too. On behalf of the tribe, I would like to say thank you.” (SW Mother)
As one would expect, a silver wolf tribe is said to have strong bonds. Even though there is no blood relation, she thanked Emilia and Reus for it.
“I did it because I wanted to do it. Besides, since I am younger, there is no need to use honorific. Please talk normally.” (Sirius)
“Y-yeah. But, I also have something to ask. Let us stop being formal, alright?” (SW Mother)
“Well then, if you insist. Anyway, I’m glad that both of you are safe. I accept your thanks. First of all, shall we introduce to each other?” (Sirius)
“Yeah. My name is Aery. Here’s my child, Quad. Hey, please say hello.” (Aery) (TLN: The names in raw, Airy = エアリー, Quad = クアド)
“I am Quad. Thanks, Nii-chan!” (Quad)
I was wondering whether he would be alarmed like Noir, but he made a smile and obediently said thanks. The children that I met for the first time, including Emilia and Rues, were all wary, so this made me feels really fresh.
Contrary to what I thought, Emilia was nodding in satisfaction; it seemed she was convinced somehow. Well… is it alright if the mother doesn’t say anything?
“I think I am totally being told by her, and my name is Sirius. I am… their Shishou.” (Sirius)
“I am Reus. Nice to meet you, Airy-san, Quad.” (Reus)
When I think about it, I am their Shishou, their master, leader and so on. But, since it is troublesome, I lumped altogether as their Shishou.
After Reus introduced himself, Aery -san turned her sight to Reus’ face. She put her hand on her mouth as if she remembered something, so Reus came closer and waved his hand.
“Is there something on my face?” (Reus)
“Aah, sorry. When I look at you again, I feel like your face resembles someone. If it is alright with you, would you tell me your family name?” (Aery)
“It is Silverion. My Tou-chan was the head of a village.” (Reus)
“Oh!? If that’s the case, you guys are Garve-san’s grandchildren!” (Aery) (TLN: The name in raw is ガーヴ.)
Aery -san made a gentle smile at Emilia and Reus, but the siblings tilted their necks as if they did not recognized the name of Garve.
“In short, Aery -san’s village is where Emilia’s family lives?” (Sirius)
“Yeah. Garve-san was the former chief of our village. Several years ago, I heard the children’s settlement was attacked by monsters and it was destroyed… but I’m glad that you are alive.” (Aery)
While shedding tears, Aery -san hugged Reus who was drawing closer.
Although it was unexpected, I found the connection to Emilia and Reus. If we go to Aery -san’s settlement, the location of the village where Emilia used to live is like to be known as well.
“That is great, you guys. Although you reaction is light, don’t you really get it?” (Sirius)
“Yes. My mother and father never said about such person.” (Emilia)
“I didn’t hear about that too. Aery -san, what kind of person is that Garve?” (Reus)
“He is a considerable old man. But, it’s probably not impossible for you guys to say that you don’t know that person. Garve-san is terribly stubborn and rarely talks about his family, and the only story that I heard was when he was drunk, about how he fought and split with his child.” (Aery)
“He is our grandfather… isn’t he?” (Emilia)
“Yeah… that’s great, Nee-chan! We have a Jii-chan!” (Reus)
The siblings gradually accepted the fact that their family was there, but for some reason, they began to delightfully cling on me. I think that I am also happy that your family is still alive, but it hurts a little when I am hugged by the strength of the siblings.
“Fufu… they are really longing for you. I heard from Emilia why did you, Sirius-kun, came to this continent. Our whole family plan to cooperate with you unsparingly, including the favor of being rescued by you.” (Aery)
“We’re saved. First of all, we will bring you to your settlement.” (Sirius)
“Yes, leave the guiding to us. By all means, I would like you to come to our settlement.” (Aery)
“Please. But, since today is already too late, I want you to recuperate slowly. We will leave tomorrow morning.” (Sirius)
“Y-yeah. The present me will only dragging your feet. I will lie down quietly.” (Aery)
Even if the injury could be cured with Reese’ magic, the physical strength didn’t recovered. In preparation for tomorrow, Airy-san obediently lied down on the bed to recover the physical strength even a bit.
To tell the truth, she wanted to go back by forcing herself, but since we saved her, it seemed impossible to overdo it. Quad also felt sleepy after eating the skewered meat, and he crawled next to her mother and had a breathing of a sleeping person.
Looking at the movement of the sun, the time was early evening. We quietly left the room, and talked about future plans.
“I will buy what we need before the day ends. Reese and I will go for shopping. Emilia and Reus, take care of those two.” (Sirius)
“Understood. I will make a light meal for Airy-san. Reus, please stay and watch over them here.” (Emilia)
“Understood, Nee-chan. I’ll be the watchdog!” (Reus)
According to the information from Daughtress, it was said that the noble are gathering adventurers to catch silver wolfkin. Because of that, let us finished with the shopping with only me and Reese, without having them tangled midway.
It is a matter of time to get to the place, but if I leave the front to Emilia and Reus, and the back to Hokuto, so there is no problem in defending.
And Reus, you’re not wrong because you are a wolfkin, but I want you to stop it because you’re too loud.
“Lastly, prepare for battle. There is a possibility that we will be attacked in the town.” (Sirius)
Not just Reus, Emilia and Reese also for some reason are not listening. Is that a proof of growing up?
I finished giving instructions to everyone, so let’s move into action at once.
“Well, shall we go, Reese? The skewered that you eat earlier seems delicious. Can you show it to me?” (Sirius)
“It was delicious. Sure, I want to eat a little bit more, anyway.” (Reese)
“Please take care. Reese, you can have fun.” (Emilia)
“Eh? Having fun… aah!?” (Reese)
Reese finally realized that only she and I were going to do the shopping. Since she was blushing and looking at me, I extended my hand to be her escort.
“Come on, let’s go, Reese.” (Sirius)
“Y-yes! Ehehe…” (Reese)
Although Reese was embarrassed while taking my hand, she floated a glittering smile.
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
Late at night.
While aiming at certain inn, the bad-natured adventurers were walking on the back alleys to avoid getting attention.
Their number was ten. Everyone seemed to be a beast sharply aiming for its prey. They were clearly different from ordinary adventurers.
“The target was a silver wolfkin. How many are they, all of them?” (??)
“A female takes the priority. It is for that whimsical noble-sama.” (??)
“Other than that, there is a muscular and splendid wolf. If you get that, he will also buy it.” (??)
“Heh! He really likes them, huh.” (??)
By considering their aim, they probably should just mobilize without that pointless talk, but the men walked while continuing the conversation.
Besides that, once they got the money after completing the request, they would immediately escape to another continent. In short, they were aware about the taboo in regards to the silver wolf tribe, and yet, they still accepted the request.
“Although she has a guardian, it seems that he is a brat. There will be no problem if we make a surprise attack with ten people at once.” (??)
“I guess so. By the way, there are cute silver wolf girl and blue hair girl inside. How about taking them home?” (??)
“What? Rather than money, do you want to take the girls?” (??)
“Me too, I would rather take the girls than money, but I’m not interested with the brat.” (??)
And then, when the targeted inn was seen, the men looked each other to confirm their plans, but they noticed abnormality there.
“…Wait a sec. Does our number getting lower?” (??)
“Where did they go? They were here until a while ago…” (??)
“Aah, they were dragged into covers earlier. And… behind.” (??)
When the men turned back, it was the moment when the foot of a muscular and splendid wolf was swung down. A man was knocked down before he could scream, and the other was blown off by a tail.
“Wh-what’s this!?” (??)
“Take a distance! What are you doing, you’re also too far!” (??)
“It’s not necessary. It is because of this… this is my partner.” (Sirius)
Hokuto leaned by my side and rub his head. There were six… No, except the one that got blown off, there were five, huh?
“You, could it be that you…” (??)
“Yeah. The adventures who gathered here had become enemies.” (Sirius)
After I finished shopping together with Reese and before we returned to the inn, the information about people who would attack us and the place they gathered were told by the Daughtress. It was for settling the debt, but since the leader was for some reason felt bothered because we were going to escort the silver wolfkin, they expressly handed the information.
Perhaps, there is a significance to depart soon, but unfortunately Aery -san is still tired. Since this was also training for the disciples, I decided to ambush them. However, this was about their reputation, so I only attacked a bit. On the contrary of surprise attacks, they should try to sneak in secretly.
By the way, I sneakily pulled the two that came here together into covers, took their consciousness and left them.
While stroking Hokuto’s head, I took off the cover of the hood and smiled at those men.
“You guys are nothing but fools, I heard everything, you know. You are careless when the opponent is a child, you don’t know the strength of your enemy, talking loudly and the surprise attack… also too poor.” (Sirius)
“Keh! Originally, we are not good with surprised attack. Taking down a brat and a monster from the front is…” (??)
“I am not alone you know.” (Sirius)
Emilia and Reus appeared from the entrance, and we sandwiched between them. However, I couldn’t feel them being impatience. They grasped their weapons and calmly looked at our direction.
The four men earlier were easily knocked down, but these five men reorganized their party. That was the proof that they had proper strength. I left them so that they could serve as training for the disciples.
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
“Oi, the target has come out. They save our time and trouble.” (??)
“You guys hold that the wolf and the brat at the back. Capture that silver wolfkin, secure the target and make her as a hostage.” (??)
Although they were no good with surprise attacks, their momentary consideration wasn’t bad. Two of the men turned to me and Hokuto, while three of them went to Emilia and Reus.
Two men threw ropes and nets in order to catch Emilia, but she manipulated the wind and jumped high. She went to their rear by stepping on their heads.
“This girl is quick… nahh!?” (??)
“It’s just that you are slow.” (Emilia)
One of the men turned his head, but he was unsightly knocked down by Emilia’s leg. In the mean time, the other man sliced down his weapon, but Emilia purposely plunged into his bosom to avoid the hit.
Before his eyes were a flowing silver hair of Emilia, and a palm directed on his face. Then, Emilia’s spell was released there.
“[Air Impact]” (Emilia)
The impact of the wind with its strength adjusted punched out the man’s jaw. The man was blown, while making a curved line, and he fell onto garden plant nearby and fainted.
“One more!” (Emilia)
She also fired [Air Impact] to the man who was knocked by foot sweep, and he also was completely lose consciousness. Above all, it seems she properly training herself because I told her not to be careless unless the enemy is completely neutralized,
Meanwhile, a man went towards Reus…
“You have a splendid sword, but is it just a decoration!?” (??)
Reus for some reason didn’t pull out his sword. He just continued avoiding his opponent’s sword. The opponent wielded his weapon while questioning Reus’ behavior, but he still kept avoiding.
At the time when the man thought it was obviously weird, Reus grabbed his sword while muttering to himself.
“It is difficult… to attack in this situation…” (Reus)
“Have you finally got motivated!? But, such a big sword is…” (??)
Before the man finished talking, Reus’ sword was hurled and sliced the man’s arm. During the gap where he was being surprised, he was hit on the crown of his head with the flat part of the sword, and the man sank while groaning.
“Haaa… It’s no good. I still can see Nee-chan. And I can’t fight in the situation where Reese-ane and Aniki nearby.” (Reus)
“Do your best, Reus. Well, let’s tie them up.” (Emilia)
What Reus was doing just now is my way of taking care of others while fighting. Certainly I am defending others while fighting the enemies before me, and preferentially defending companions who are likely to be targeted. However, it is possible because of my ability, [Multi Task], but it is not easy even if you enhanced the physical strength with [Boost].
Nevertheless, Reus was going to do that. Since they seemed not putting a great effort to protect the most important thing, the enemies were aiming at me.
The siblings threw a rope and quickly tied the three helpless men.
By the time the battle of the siblings finished, Hokuto’s side also over.
The man who approached Hokuto was a man with a Halberd that was taller than his height. Apparently he was befitting of using it as he swung down the heavy looking Halberd at Hokuto, but Hokuto waved his right forefoot without evading it.
At the moment when Hokuto’s forefront was waved, the Halberd was divided into four.
It wasn’t used habitually because it was dangerous, and the halberd was torn by Hokuto’s nails. In short, he is using something that he usually curls.
Hokuto raised his arm at the man who was stunned by the loss of his weapon. He swung down the nails that were strong like a steel… no, he stopped it at the man’s nose.
Although a cute paw was spread before his eyes, the man fainted and crumbled on the spot due to Hokuto’s intimidation.
As soon as Hokuto made a small bark, Emilia and Reus rushed over and tied the men. I was able to see a very clear hierarchical order.
The top… is me, of course.
“Hmmm… Emilia and Rues are doing their best.” (Sirius)
“You bastard! Why are you looking away!?” (??)
I was looking at the battle of the siblings and Hokuto, while slashing the man in front of me.
Even if you say that I am looking away, your sword is too monotonous and I can catch it with sidelong glance.
“Why!? Why my sword can be held with such small sword!?” (??)
“You rely too much on your strength. Look, it’s not enough.” (Sirius)
A greatsword, that was swung by both hands of an adult, was held by the short sword that I received from Dee. To say it accurately, rather than holding, I was shedding it away.
The trick is, it is a matter of leading away the trajectory of the sword when the hit connect but before the opponent’s strength get through. If it is Lior or Reus, they will interact with perception and technique, but since the man before me emphasizes the strength and weight of the sword, it is easy to shed away his attack. If I want to add some more, even a small sword made from Gravilite is way stronger than your sword.
If looking from the other side, he will feel as if I’m completely evading his sword attack.
“Shall I explain in detail? To swing that greatsword with that level of speed is praiseworthy, but the technique is poor. It is evidence that you haven’t fought stronger opponent.” (Sirius)
“Damn it! Are you brat trying to pretend to be an educator!?” (??)
Whether he didn’t want to be told by me, without learning the lesson, he raised the greatsword with all his strength. Perhaps, he thought that the strength was not enough, so it was likely that his opponent would be crushed if he used more strength. He was full of gap when he raised the sword, but I purposely waited for his attack.
“With this, your sword… ooo!?” (??)
When the greatsword was swung down, I took a step to his rear at the same time. I swept his leg at the moment when the opponent’s center of gravity got the most forward, and I scoop up the floated leg by trusting the sword. Coupled with the center of gravity, the man was thrown into the air as if he was flying forward. He fell on the ground and lied on his back.
“You forget this.” (??)
The man recovered the greatsword he had unintentionally released from his hand, and thrust it right next to my face. Elysion student will faint with this, but this man was an adventurer, and he only stunned for a moment.
Quite a nerve, but… there is no meaning.
I put my hand on the man’s belly, and said the word of farewell.
“If you want to hate, hate the client. Well, I’m not sure whether you’ll be alive or not.” (Sirius)
It can’t be help since this guy is bringing war with the silver wolf tribe to this town.
Maybe the client will be dealt by the Daughtress by this time.
For the sake of having a quiet sleep today, I reap the man’s consciousness with a point blank [Impact].

“Did you get it, Quad-kun? Sirius-sama is a wonderful person who rescued us. He is very strong, very good at cooking…” (Emilia)
“Ooo! Amazing Nii-chan!” (Quad)
“Aah… that bad habit of Emilia once again. Sorry, Aery-san. I’ll stop her immediately.” (Sirius)
“I don’t mind. It’s fine. My child is having fun, and Emilia also seems happy.” (Aery)
“…So, Quad-kun… Pledging to Sirius-sama is…” (Emilia)
“Yeah, ME TOO… AS SIRIUS-SAMA…” (Quad) (TLN: The caps are all in katakana)
“Awawa!? I knew it!” (Reese)
“They are really fun kids.” (Aery)
After that, it seemed he was cured when Reese poured water on him.
“Aniki! The technique that you used to handle that man’s sword is amazing! It barely uses any strength, so how can I do it?” (Reus)
“If you keep being struck by Lior-jiisan’s sword, you will naturally be able to do it.” (Sirius)
“Oo… ouu! Alright, when I meet him next time, I also will…” (Reus)
“Furthermore, when he fires eight slashes attack at the same time, you’ll do it perfectly if you handle all of it. However, if you miss even one, your bones will surely break.” (Sirius)
Actually, I broke a few bones.
At that time, I was fighting by using wooden sword, but since the strength and technique of both of us were high, I always have a feeling of the possibility of dying.
The expression that Reus showed at that time was very impressive. It was a mixed of surprise, fear and reverence.
