Chapter 32: Former knight resentes.
“… Such difficult travelling. ‘Refresh’ ” (Felnote) (T.N: ‘Refresh’ is skill name)
After having spoken the word, it transformed my magical power and caused the phenomenon I envisioned.
I am doing it again and again. It has been a while since I regained light, but I used to do it as well during the time in the kingdom knight corp.
… I am not good at this.
Actually, I am weak to vehicles and I feel sick.
During the time in the Knight corp, I became dizzy in the carriage by the time it got to the expedition area, and there are many soldiers who became useless on site.
The first challenge when I became a knight is “How we face physical sickness”.
And I studied recovery magic in order to overcome it. Once you make use of sobering healing magic, it will be fine for a while, while resting magical power will also recover and you can use it again.
It is a little troublesome, but no matter how much I try, I can not help it because I was not able to change my constitution.
“Are you alright? Felnote-san” (Zeno)
“I’m fine, Zeno” (Felnote) (T.N: Felnote don’t use -kun or -san with Zeno)
The peddler who is reining in the horse looks back to me carefully.
His name is Zeno Kotobuki. He is my current employer. To be accurate, we are just helping each other, but since I’m on the side to which wages are given, it is not a mistake in the expression of an employer.
“I have enough magical power to adjust my physical condition, it will not be exhausted. Be it demon or thief, I can easy cut and dispose of it.” (Felnote)
“That is reliable, is it saved?” (Zeno)
“Everything is good. Can I ask you to move to the Republic.” (Felnote)
“Yes, please leave the carriage to me” (Zeno)
This is the part where our interests coverge. That means that we are going to the Republic together.
I follow Argento Vampear.
I know that she went to the border.
Will she go to the Empire and the Republic? I’m betting on the Republic.
The empire has it pretty rough in the fight against the kingdom. Due to heavy taxes and use of conscripts, the country has quite a tight atmosphere.
On the other hand, the republic is not involved in the fight between the kingdom and the empire.
If it is an empire and a republic, then the Republic is more peaceful. The army recruitment is voluntary, taxes are not light, but not hevay enough to be as outrageous as the empire. I hear that life in the country seems to be painful but it’s not nearly as rough as in the empire.
If that girl goes, she will move to a more stable place.
For Zeno, he says that there is a report to the commercial guild.
A commercial guild is a union in which many peddlers join together.
The peddlers who belong there are required to give a report to the headquarters every year. It seems that it’s arranged so that peddlers report the balance of payment for one year and pay the assembly fee according to earnings.
Sakura Nomiya, whose headquarters of the commercial guild is the capital of the Republic. I heard that trees named Sakura bloom a lot, so it seems to be a beautiful capital.
It’s popular as a sightseeing spot, and there were many colleagues saying they have a “Honeymoon in Sakura Nomiya” during the knight era.
… The scenery is good and the food is also famous.
A unique food culture such as rice and tempura is rooted and there are times you are told that “If you do not eat yutsuba dishes, you are not eating the right way.”
Besides, the Republic of Yotsuba has a feature that is also tolerant of the same sex marriage, and among the 3rd women knight corp who are my subordinates, some couples of the same sex have decided to stay permanently in the Republic after retiring.
… Same sex marriage.
I thought of a girl with silver hair unexpectedly, and in doing so I quickly drowned out my imagination. I wonder what she is thinking. Did she not want to be together with me anymore?
Arge is bad for this and that too. She is determined to be bad.
The rice of that day said that she wanted to eat, it was a somewhat unusual food.
It was originally rare and the timing was a bit off, so I had a hard time finding it. And even though I find it and wait for her at home, she did not come back. I was tired, so I fell asleep at the table that day.
Far from not going home again, I go to the house of Samaka the next day … When I visited, I was told that “she left the town” implicitly. I thought it was a mess. Did you know how much I struggled to find that food?
… No, that is not it.
I do not want to say that about meals. I was just disappointed.
I was left alone without even being told anything. That just made me feel like I was thrown away.
To respond to that extent, I am about to leave the country where I was born and am now bored of, and looking for someone who is not even sure that I can meet.
I think that I am wrong, but I really want to see you. I missed having to meet and say a word.
Let’s think about that afterwards. Specifically, it is different from the ceremonial hall … Since I miss you, I want to meet you again.
I got to know Zeno since I saw him recruiting escorts while preparing my trips on the market.
Zeno Kotobuki. Kotobuki is a word of Yotsuba I’ve heard before. I remember that it was meant as a happy thing or a celebration.
So I quickly understood that he was from the Republic, and since I thought that he might go to the Republic, we can help each other.
“Before I go over there, I’ll have to be able to perform everyday conversation.” (Felnote)
“In that case, I will teach you.” (Zeno)
“Phew, you saved me there, Zeno” (Felnote)
“Because the escort of a kingdom knight is being received cheaply, this is what I can do to show gratitude” (Zeno)
“Former…only. Do not expect too much. I was also blind for a year” (Felnote)
“Speaking of the ‘Odd eye’s Holy Knight’ , she is said to be such a powerful woman that she was known even outside the country, she will regain her intuition quickly.” (Zeno)
“ ‘Tis an old story, please don’t say too much” (Felnote)
It’s a nostalgic name, but when I think a bit more honestly now it’s quite embarrassing. I blushed slightly as I reminisced about the embarrassing nickname. [E.D. I replaced this bit since I have absolutely no idea what this is supposed to mean; ‘It is kind of blush as a person who is so skilful after past twenty.’] (T.N: yes, what you edit is perfect, I kind of want to say it like you but don’t know the word so I borrow Machine Translate, even after fix it’s still a mess)
It seems that a long-running refusal came through, and Zeno apologizes with the words “I’m sorry” and it ends.
Not at all. Like this, it makes me want to become stronger for my younger partner. It is all because of that girl.
As soon as you remember it, that vague sleeping face floats into your imagination.
Every day, she slept comfortably everyday, made cute noise when sleeping and drooling, a silver vampire that was sleeping until she was hungry.
Sloppily taking off the robe and rubbing your body in the sheet while feeling comfortable.
Sometimes it was pretty lovely to leak out small words while sleeping.
Still, those kindly are easy to wake up to, and because she talks in a kind voice to say “Felnote-san”, I was able to bear waking up roughly. It was so unprotected, it seemed to be unbearable. I do not understand well what I am not able to bear.
“Together with me … Arge said” (Felnote)
“Well, have you said Arge just now?” (Zeno)
“Yes, I said … but what’s wrong?” (Felnote)
“No, I know an acquaintance by the same nickname…” (Zeno)
“… Argento?” (Felnote)
We were suprised and kept stare at each other for a while.
The world is small, perhaps when we stared at each other, we don’t realize that, the wheels of the horse carriage stepped on the dents and bounced greatly, I bumped my ass.
“Itta ~aa! ?” (Felnote)
Even now, that was the vampire’s fault . That must be the case.
I will absolutely catch her, and I will complain a lot.
