(No-Mile) Chapter 79: Secret Hunters – Wonder Three

ab3bc8150858f1edace89f082bdface0--fantasy-character-design-church
Θ Imperial capital city

There are two schools Eardley and Ekland in the Imperial capital city.
In the evening on a certain day-off, three girls walk on a narrow street.

 

“That girl, I wonder if she is doing fine …” (Marcella)

“It’s okay. That girl will not get hurt even if she was stepped on by a dragon, isn’t she, Marcella-sama?”  (Oriana)

“Right now, I’m only『Marcella』
Even I know it, I still wonder if she is doing fine!”  (Marcella)

“Well … I guess that’s true!” (Oriana)

 

It’s been 8 months since then.
The three girls: Marcella, Monika, and Oriana already advanced to the third grade.
After graduation, Marcella will have bridal training, she will return to her parents’ house.
Monika will also return to help her family’s business and Oriana has to go work for the country to repay the scholarship.

They only have one more year to live a relaxed life.
Where they are walking is a narrow street which is a little off from the center of the city.
However, they are not alone.
Two men blocked their way and when Marcella quickly confirmed their back, there are also two men behind.

…Surrounded.

 

“It’s not nice to follow the ladies. State your business, I’m listening”  (Marcella)

 

Marcella’s asking them so without being scared. Monika and Oriana aren’t like that, they are frightened and stuck together.

 

“Well well, we just need you, girls, to come with us” (Man A)

“If you would like to associate with me, please officially sign up for my father through the introducer” (Marcella)

“…”  (Man A)

 

Of course, Marcella wasn’t serious when saying that.
There was no way for those men to officially apply for a relationship with a nobleman lady.
Unlike Adel who hid her lineage, Marcella has the noble title.

 

“Ku~
you will be coming with us whether you want or not!
There is a person who has something for you!”
 (Man A)

 

While saying that, that man extended his arm to Marcella.

 

“Ignition!”  (Oriana)

“Ah… it’s hot!” (Man A)

 

Oriana uses ignition magic, one of the living convenience magic that she’s already mastered.
With a little magic power consumption, the magic still can burn the arm of that man.
(Reader Note: It’s super effective!)

 

“Damn, this girl!
They only need the aristocrat’s daughter.
We can kill any commoners.
What you did to me, you can regret it in hell!” (Man A)

 

Then the man took back his extended hand and pulled out his sword.

 

“Die!” (Man A)

 

When the sword was swung down and Oriana was ready for death, Marcella stands before Oriana to protect her.

 

“Wha~!” (Man A)

 

He was surprised that the aristocratic daughter that they plan to capture comes in front of the sword that he swung down.
The man tried to stop the sword in a hurry, but he couldn’t make it in time.

 

Gusu~  (SFX)

 

However, the sword didn’t even touch the body of the nobleman’s daughter.
It was a mass of ice that appeared in front of her that blocked the sword.

 

“What …”  (Man A)

“Ignition”  (Oriana)

 

Before the man reacted, Oriana muttered the spell with an expressionless face.
And the man’s hair is burning vigorously.

 

“Aaaaaaa!” (Man A)

 

Oriana looks at the man, who rolls on the floor to erase the fire on his head with cold eyes.
She was angry.
She was very angry.

 

“Water ball!”  (Monika)

 

Monika casts a large water ball with only the name, hits the face of another man who blocked the front.

 

“Ubu, Gabu Bab!”  (Man B) (T.N: his head in water so he can’t talk)

 

The man desperately tries to use his hand to get away from the water ball, but the water that covered the head did not go away.
Even if he tries to scrape by hand, even if he tries to run around and shake it, the movement of the man gradually worsens with a water ball that will not leave his head.

On the other hand, Marcella turned back at the moment that man was attacked by Oriana, she casts the magic.

Again, just like Oriana and Monika, she only speaks the name.
Although she can also chant her magic, however, right now she doesn’t have the time for that.
The power is decreased a little.

 

“Fire shot!”  (Marcella)

 

Two flame bullets are flying towards two men and hit their shoulder.
The two dropped the sword and fell down while rotating the body.
Marcela seems to have enough room to carefully aim.
Marcella’s group were not playing around for two years since they first received a magical lecture from Adel.

One year and two months with Adel.
In the following 8 months, they were in self-study

For the sake of their future, they have continued their efforts and research.
Three intelligent people have continued their training based on knowledge of the magic learned from Adel.
And this is what they become.

They didn’t think that man, who plans to capture them, would suddenly swing his sword like that.
Luckily, Marcella has reacted in time that they were safe but it was certainly dangerous.

 

“Well, I wonder who have hired you guys, now tell me …” (Marcella)

 

The men haven’t heard that these girls are wonderful magicians.
What they were told are a noble girl, a merchant, and a commoner.
They thought they can easily capture the noble girl and do what they like with the other two.

And the hunters who seemed to be nearby came running.
The girls decided to leave the interrogation to the hands of experts and left.

On the way to the guild for the explanation of circumstances.
Oriana, who had an unusual sullen face, hung on Marcella.

 

“Marcella-sama, what do you think you are doing?”  (Oriana)

“Oh, what is this, I wonder?” (Marcella)

“When that man attacked me,
why did you do such a dangerous thing …
aren’t you afraid to die?
Marcella’s life is more important than my life …”  (Oriana)

“Oriana”  (Marcella)

 

Marcela interrupted Oriana’s words.

 

“It was certainly scary to die.
But it’s not a big deal compared to the fear of losing you in front of my eyes without doing anything and keep on living with that regret for the rest of my life.”  (Marcella)

 

Oriana, who heard Marcella’s words, became happy and her face was loosening but she still continued.

 

“Don’t joke around like that!
Well then, do you know how I feel to see you die to protect me in front of my eyes?
Isn’t that more terrible?
Are you planning to let me carry that burden for the rest of my life?” (Oriana)

“Ah…”  (Marcella)

 

Marcella realized it with her mouth open. It seems she didn’t think about it.

 

“Well, I was wrong …” (Marcella)

“Well, if you understand, it’s fine.
But you must swear that you will never do that again!” (Oriana)

 

With Oriana’s words, Marcella shakes her head.

 

“I can not promise that.”  (Marcella)

“Why, why?”  (Oriana)

 

Marcella replied with a strange look on her face like why did Oriana would ask such a thing.

 

“That’s because you are my precious friend and no matter what I will protect you.” (Marcella)

“…” (Oriana)

 

It’s no use, Oriana can’t say anything anymore. Oriana understands well about Marcella.

This girl is Marcella, she is a wonderful aristocratic girl who holds gratitude and respect even towards a commoner.

 

Guild master room.jpg
Θ Imperial capital city – Hunter Guild – Guild master room

“… That’s what happens” (Marcella)

 

Marcella explains the situation in the guild master room on the second floor of the Hunter Guild.

Guild Master is sitting face to face with the Marcella trio in a table set instead of his desk. And there’s a receptionist standing alone instead of a secretary.

 

“Hmm, to think they dare to attack princess’s favorite,
what did they try to do with Marcela-san…
do they plan to take you as a hostage?
Well, the experts will examine it.
However, to attack you girls, the Wonder Three, and the guild’s secret D rank magician hunters, those guys must have a death wish.
It seems like they don’t have any prior knowledge  about you…” (Guild master)

“Hahaha …” (Marcella)

 

Yes, the girls were D rank hunters.

With Marcella 『Adel Simulator』as host

Connected with Oriana and Monika by 『Link system』

The three of them made a 『Super Adel Simulator』that can predict all of Adel’s behaviors

The calculation result was as follows.

Where is Adel?

  • Domestic residual probability 6%
  • Overseas escape probability 94%

What is Adel doing?

  • In the depths of the forest and so on alone latent 5%
  • Lodging in the aristocracy 4%
  • Living in as a maid 7%
  • Clerk in the city somewhere 9%
  • Hunter 69%
  • Other 6%

And three of them decided to register as a 『Hunter』 for the time being.

Their goal is rank C at the time of graduation. Or at least, rank D.

If it is Adel, she is definitely ranked C before they graduate.
If there’s no age restriction or anything else, Adel must be B rank or over.
Fortunately, thanks to the knowledge that Adel taught them, Marcela trio, who had become magician hunters.

Monika who was the weakest of the three and next is Oriana.
All of them can use non-chant speed cast.
Thanks to Adel formula 『How to imitate the phenomenon, without chant at all』

Of course, it takes a while for them to be able to do it.
And they tell everyone like Adel ask 『We are able to do it because we have been training to the point of vomiting blood』

In addition, the three of them can use powerful magic that is incompatible with the amount of magical power, and their actual magical power exceeds the average magician.

Therefore, they were able to start from D Ranked by the skip system at the time of registering as hunters.
Of course, it is a secret to their parents.
Actually, they don’t really want to become hunters.

However, if they had the opportunity to meet Adel again, they want to raise it as much as possible.

Besides, Hunter’s C rank qualification isn’t an obstacle.
When you are married, C rank magician hunter will be the best selling point.

Marcela trio didn’t intend to become ordinary hunters but they are still getting the common sense as a hunter.
They gather medicinal herbs, hunt horn rabbit, hunt goblins, etc. together with other parties.

Parties of boys from F – D Rank never refused their joint party offer.
After that, Marcella didn’t get any request to hunt or collect but received a lot of nomination request despite D Rank.

It is an escort request.

It is not an escort like a merchant escort.
Those request will be specified as C Rank or higher, and students like Marcella trio can take those kinds of request.
What they are doing is becoming the body-guard of some VIP girl.
Like daughter of a nobleman or daughter of a large merchant, etc.

They will pretend to be the girl’s sisters or friends and follow the girl everywhere and guard her safety.

Beautiful girls aged 11 to 12 who can be with the girl even in the bathroom or bathing time, can gain time for the girl to withdraw if there’re a lot of enemies.

The most important is they cannot be seen as a hunter.
The girls only work on the weekend.
In case they need to work on weekdays, they absolutely need to get through the school.
The girls themselves can skip any lesson because they are actually stronger than their teacher though.

And in the past few months, they almost weren’t attacked, and Marcella trio was steadily accumulating accomplishments with A evaluation.
Many hunters don’t know about Marcella trio’s existence as they don’t work on the surface in the first floor of the guild.

Even if they happen to be seen at the guild, other hunters will think of them as a client that need to meet guild master, or the family, relatives of the guild staff.
The girls were the secret weapon of guild escort specialization that had been working for 8 months, school girl bishoujo hunter, the “Wonder Three”.

At the break of the talks, the guild master invited the girls for some tea that is placed on the table, and Marcella accepted it accordingly.

Marcella elegantly brings the cup to her mouth and started drinking tea, her eyes by chance were pointed towards the object behind the guild master, on the desk.

Four of something like dolls were placed and they seemed out-of-place to be on the guild master’s desk.

When she looks closely at the doll … 

 

Pfffu  ~! (SFX)

 

She blew all the tea in her mouth, to the face of the guild master sitting in front of her.

Monika and Oriana, who are drinking their tea quietly, have their eyes follow Marcella’s line of sight …

 

Pffff ~! (SFX)

 

The receptionist was late to protect the guild master, withdrew a handkerchief from his pocket and rushed to the Guild Master.

But the Guild Master waved his left hand lightly and stopped him.

Then he wiped his face and clothes with his own handkerchief that he took out and put the handkerchief carefully back in his pocket.

Without noticing the cold gaze from the receptionist.

 

“We’re so sorry!” (Marcella + Monika + Oriana)

 

The Marcella trio apologized in a panic.

Never turn their eyes from the desk.

They wanted to hear about those doll on the desk.

But if the guild master or country knew that they showed a strong interest in that, the dolls will definitely be investigated.

His Majesty the King can’t give out Adel’s description.

If It wasn’t Marcella or her friend, they will not know about it.

Θ Imperial capital city

On the way home from the guild.

 

“… It seems she is doing fine.” (Marcella)

“She really became a hunter in another country after all” (Oriana)

“Do you think we will meet up with her soon…?” (Monika)

07

Marcella could not control her cheeks loosening.

 

“Ufu” (Marcella)

“aha…” (Oriana)

“Ahahahahahahahaha!” (Marcella + Oriana + Monika)

 

Three girls suddenly burst out laughing while walking, passers-by looking at them strangely, but their laughter wasn’t likely to stop easily.

Castle.jpg
Θ Imperial capital city – Imperial castle

“… And that is the behavior of Marcella-san today.” (Escort A)

 

The kind, first prince Adalbert, second prince Vincel and third princess Morena listen to the report of the man who has a secret mission to follow Marcella’s trio, Escort captain Burg.

 

“Why didn’t you help Oriana or Marcella in that dangerous situation!” (Morena)

 

Morena who finished listening to the report raised her voice in anger.

 

“No, I didn’t think those men would suddenly try to harm them” (Captain Burg)

“Is that the meaning of the escort?” (Morena)

“…” (Captain Burg)

“Good, you are dismissed” (King)

“…” (Captain Burg)

 

After the escort guy went out, the king informed Morena.

 

“Escort changes.” (King)

“Next time, please make it a trustworthy person” (Morena)

“I know” (King)

 

The escort guard was watching from before the attacks on Marcella until they went to the guild, but he didn’t go into the guild.

After they see the girls went back to the dormitory of the school.

And the guard went back to report.

So, he was listening to the conversation between Oriana and Marcella.

 

“Also, we need to deal with the mastermind behind this attack…” (Morena)

“I know, I’ll deal with it properly, so do not worry!” (King)

“But …” (Morena)

 

Even Morena is really worrying about Marcella, the king was a little disconcerting.

At that time, Adalbert of the first prince murmured.

 

“For the sake of her commoner friend,
she wasn’t afraid to stand in front of the sword being swung down …
and she treats it as not a big deal,
She is an interesting girl …” (Adalbert)

“Marcella, she is such a nice young girl! She is also strong, and cute …” (Vincel)

 

Following Adalbert, the second Prince Vincel was also curious about Marcella.

 

“Huh…?” (King + Morena + High-rank officer)

 

Until now, Adalbert didn’t show interest at all to the daughters of the aristocrat that he met. And Vincel seemed to be interested in her as well.

The king, who already planned to marry Adel to the royal family after they found her, becomes speechless.

And as for Princess Morena.

 

(Adel-san and Marcella-san, I wonder if they will become my sister-in-law anytime soon) (Morena)

She dreamed of such a future and had a face that looked really happy.

      • To make it clearer, you could use “sake of.” Also, you switched verb tenses while the prince was still talking about past events. You also used a comma splice, which is a common error even among native speakers of English where a comma is used to separate two phrases that could stand alone as sentences, and therefore should be separated not by a comma but by a period, a semicolon or an em dash (a long dash that’s supposed to look like “—” but is usually represented by two hyphens as in “–” since many people don’t know how to input an em dash—on my cell phone, I input mine by copying it from its Wikipedia article 😁).

        I put corrections within pairs of * in the following:

        “For *the sake of* a commoner friend, she wasn’t afraid to stand in front of *a* sword *as it was* swung down … and she *treated* it as not a big *deal.* She is an interesting girl …”

    • “We can kill commoners, I will make you regret for what you make me go through in hell!”
      I believe that the inference was that she would be in hell and while there she would be regretting what it was that she had done.
      I am having a difficult time thinking of a good way to include “putting me through that” so might just skip it entirely…
      And “we can kill commoners” is acceptable, well, grammatically it is… “We can kill the commoners” means that they can only kill the commoners that they are currently referring to, rather than being able to kill commoners as a general rule. I would hope that the source clarifies this a bit but I do acknowledge that “We can kill the commoners” feels more natural. It is typical of such media to be referring only to the group in question in most matters and for generic references to be withheld unless they are specifically illustrating the nature of the villains, and then it is usually as a monologue when they don’t know that the heroes can hear them, probably to illustrate their evil habits in private where they have no reason to lie, whereas in front of the hero they might be putting on an act and their pure evil might come into question. So my take is:
      “We can kill the commoners, I will make you regret that in hell!”
      Also I suspect that it is bad to switch the listener mid-sentence. Before the comma their allies are the listeners, being reminded that they can kill commoners, while after the comma he is talking to the little girl with a fire spell… If he was telling HER that they are allowed to kill commoners then it would make sense, but you would expect something a bit more personal then “the commoners” in that instance.
      “We can kill you commoners, you’ll regret in Hell what you did!”
      “We can kill the commoners. You’ll regret what you did to me, in Hell!”
      “We can kill any commoners. What you did to me, you can regret it in hell!”

      Huh? My scouter just exploded! Something really pedantic my be happening nearby… I better check on that! Sorry that I can’t help you any more.

    • Probably not.
      Arranged marriages looks to be common in this world, though.
      Adel seems like quite a prize as a marriage partner cause she is as powerful as she is. Also I believe the King is pushing the marriage thing a lot to make “The goddess” to favour his country.

        True, There are lot of benefit having her as a royal family member.
        But, I feel the king is too hasty to think about marriage already.
