Mile Chapter 122: Stories of adults

 

 

「What did you say!」 (King of Tirus)

 

This is royal palace of the Tirus Kingdom.

There are four people in the King’s chamber: the King himself, the Prime Minister, the living legend Sword Saint that climbed up in status from hunter to aristocrat, Earl Christopher, and the Guild Master of the Hunter Guild Capital Branch.

 

「 Didn’t I tell you to secure them properly?」 (King)

 

Earl Christopher tries to calm down the king, who yelled at the guild master’s report.

 

「Please calm down, Your Majesty.
Just as reported by the Guild Master, they have not transferred to another country …
They’re just taking a journey to train and to seek interesting, challenging and difficult requests.
They are still young hunters, it’s natural」 (Chris)

「… That reminds me, I was told that Earl Christopher also traveled around different countries when he was a hunter
And even after receiving the Earl title, I still sometimes heard rumors that you went out for some request without permission …」 (King)

「Ah ha ha ha …」 (Chris)

 

Earl Christopher scratches his head as he smiles wryly to change the topic.

And the Earl continued to defend the Guild Master.

 

「Well, hunters often have that kind of personality …
Besides, after traveling to a certain extent, you will somehow get satisfied and settle down in your own country.
I was like that, too.
Besides, that girl Pauline, whose family is living and working in our country.
And that young lady Maevis is a daughter of a noble family of our country…
Furthermore, Maevis is …」 (Chris)

「She is what ?」 (King)

 

Earl Christopher answers the question of the king with a wry smile.

 

「 She wants to become a knight.
You can easily tie her up if you can give her the title knight.
And in the future, she may become the captain knight
Unlike hunters that keep their technique and training method to themselves.
As a captain knight, she will teach her own squad her technique and training method.
It will later even spread among our country armies」 (Chris)

「Hm…」 (King)

 

After hearing the Earl’s plan, the king regained his composure.

 

「But what about Mile and Rena.
Didn’t Mile come from another country, isn’t there a possibility of her returning to her home country?」 (King)

「No, according to information we heard from other students
There were rumors that Mile seems to be a former noble, who was chased away from her homeland.
She threw away her family name and lived as a hunter.
If it’s really so, we can deal with her easy…」 (Chris)

 

The Earl had reached a good point but paused for a moment.  The king urged him to speak as soon as possible.

Earl Christopher raised his left thumb up.

「 A girl who has escaped to another country, losing everything, the country, the family, the identity as a nobility, and so on.
After all that then all her own talent was recognized and was given a noble title by His Majesty the King.
Doesn’t it make her want to become loyal to our country?」 (Chris)

「I see!」 (3 man)

 

Everyone praised the Earl’s plan.

Well, he didn’t become the Earl for nothing.  And of course, they don’t need to give the girl a title like Earl.

It can be a baroness position, a knighthood of a noble aristocrat, or a semi-aristocrat.

 

「 Guild Master! Is there any other problem …」 (King)

 

The guild master was asked by the king, looked a little troubled and slowly answered.

 

「No, all other problems have already been said already …」 (G.M)

「What!」 (King)

「Well, just as Earl Christopher said earlier
Hunters are that kind of people …
It is normal for many of those who became hunters to go on a journey around countries while they are young.
And in this case, they have already traveled after graduating from Hunter training school without waiting for 5 years.
So unless they are working for our country for 5 years, they can’t become free.
Of course, we don’t permit officially transferring overseas, it’s a temporary expedition.
And while they are working outside of the country, we will not count the 5 years obligation in the rule.
To fulfill the condition, they need to return home without fail after a certain amount of time and work for our country.
They are still too young, and they have extraordinary talent.
Even if they found a man in another country, I will work hard to stop it.
No man can tolerate the harassment that is very troublesome from the guild Faction.
Ho ho, I can’t resist it …」 (G.M)

「………… 」 (King + P.Minister)

 

Listening to the explanation of the Guild Master, the King, and the Prime Minister became silent.

Earl Christopher knew about that as a matter of course.

 

「Besides, given their past actions, there’s hardly any entanglement …」 (G.M)

「Is that so …」 (King)

 

When the Guild Master tells the king so, the Prime Minister and Count Christopher also nodded.

 

「Also even if the hunters do something wrong, they need to take responsibility for themselves.
Neither the country nor the guild will take responsibility for them.
But if they make some achievements in other countries, we can claim that they are citizens of our country and that they are hunters registered in our country, in other words, it’s all thanks to our country」 (G.M)

 

Hearing about the horrible intent, this time Christopher put up a disgusted face.

 

「No, just because they are new promising hunters, it doesn’t mean they will do anything like that」 (Chris)

 

In the end, it was decided to let the 「Red oath」do as they like.

However, it’s absolutely impossible to relocate to another country. It is the same as if one went to go to marry a man from another country.

Even if it is a man from this country, if he is not suitable for a girl, it will become disadvantageous for the country.  So he would be prohibited from being with the girl in the first place.

In case of any achievement, the King would consider bestowing a title.

All of those above were decided.

In this way, the 「Red Oath」’s hurdle to finding a suitable partner was raised very high, however, even the girls themselves weren’t aware of this.

Of course, it was another matter whether or not they would follow it …

 

 

***************************************************

 

「We are the C-ranked Hunter Party “Red Oath” that received the escort request.
We would like to thank you for the request this time」 (Maevis)

「No, we are the ones who must say thanks !」 (Merchant)

 

The merchant returns a greeting to Maevis.

This is a town close to the borderline, we have received the escort request from here to the neighboring country. The client is a small merchant team of five carriages, led by three merchants.

There is a total of 9 people: Red Oath, 3 merchants, and two people more that seems like the merchant’s family.

Unlike large-scale merchants from the capital city and big cities, this level is more common.

Several days ago, Rena announced that 「We will leave the country, I think that it is necessary to ride the carriage in an escort request」

Everyone was satisfied with that announcement, it wasn’t a big trouble.

And if we received an escort request, we would also have more income,

Until we can find a good escort request, we can either withdraw money or hunt while waiting.

In order to avoid other hunters taking the escort requests that’s across the border, only three girls were doing hunt and collecting quest, one is waiting in the guild.

And Rena has been chosen.

At the time when a good request was issued and attached to the board, Rena stripped it off at lightning-fast speed.

And when Rena finished the order procedure, she soon went to the merchants and had a small meeting with the merchant. After that, she waited for other girls to come back at the inn.

Rena had already finished her work, so she didn’t have to wait alone in the guild. There was no problem if she relaxed at the inn.

And now it is time for the departure with the merchant team.

As expected, rumors of the 「Red Oath」have not spread to this place.

Even if that name was well known in the Capital city, they are only a C rank party after all.

Rumors that transmitted to such a small town in rural areas are either from S rank or the top A rank.

If it’s a B rank party, its name would be recognizable in neighboring towns.

And they decided to forget that their name was well known in the kingdom.

From now on, as an unknown brand-new C-rank hunter party, we return to the beginning and act humbly as a newcomer.

Until we make a name for ourselves. (T.N: become famous)

The deployment of the escort, in the top carriage: Mile and Pauline. And the last carriage: Maevis and Rena.

Everyone thought of this arrangement was optimal considering the balance between vanguard and rear guard, distribution of attack power, etc.

Also, it was natural that Mile uses the detection magic from the start.

Mile didn’t want everyone to rely too much on this magic.

However, this is in the escort mission which protecting human life as the first priority.

That’s why while traveling, Mile was talking only with Pauline and the man.

As for the seating arrangement, Pauline was next to the man and Mile was sitting on the roof as usual.

At the first carriage, the man isn’t a merchant, but a hired manager.

Of course, he never turns around, he doesn’t want to be thought of as a pervert trying to peep under a girl’s skirt.

Mile knew about the capital and the town where she had registered as a hunter in this country.

After that, she also dropped by a couple of towns and villages for a short time with her request task. She wasn’t interested in traveling routes and destinations.

Even if she hears the name of the highway, she doesn’t know it.

Even if she hears the name of the town, she forgets it immediately.

An escort request is a task that only needs to defeat bandits and monsters that attack the client.

However, as long as we stay together, I don’t have to worry about anything.

All of this order processing, coordination with the client, etc. were done by Rena alone.

Rena is also the daughter of a peddler and isn’t an amateur when it comes to traveling and transactions.

So Mile didn’t have to worry about anything.

Besides, when she goes to a city for the first time, she can have an excited and enjoyable visit.

That’s why, unlike Pauline, who heard everything from Rena and Maevis while on break.

Mile just went on to hunt some prey for dinner while on the move.

Mile knew nothing about the next destination.

And of course, Mile didn’t have enough of a memory to remember the way she went through only once before in a hurry almost a year ago.

Besides, the scenery from the opposite direction seemed totally different.

The borderline was near.

And the carriage is on the move, carrying an excited Mile.

  1. Thanks for the trans! A question popped in my head while I was reading: Shouldn’t Mile’s iq/intellegence or whatever you would call that be half of the smartest person?

  2. Mile is just don’t care about the destination point because of Rena guidance. But let me say this to Mile. ignorance is not a bliss for this case, it is a grave mistake. Mile, you are unknowingly taken home.

    I wish to see how she react when she aware that she gets home unknowingly.

    • I can’t believe I had forgotten about him!

      Personally, I’m more interested in the meeting of Mile’s Red Oath with Adel’s school-friends. I’m hoping for a chapter in which they compare notes on Adel / Mile. 😀

      And, of course, how will the king’s plans be changed when Mile learns she in fact still has her title as countess (viscountess?), making her already a noble of notable rank in another country. Giving her a minor title like ‘Baroness’ won’t do much to bind her to the country if she already has a higher rank in another country.

      • It hasn’t already been stated several times than a A+ party usually has 7-8 members? Add the wonder three. And as then the party is a bit low in front fighters, add Kevin and the other boy (I don’t recall the name). Or better, find two other fighting girls.

  11. Suggestion:
    「Didn’t I tell you “”->”to” secure them properly?」 (King)

    she will teach her own squad her technique and training method. “And”->”It will” later even spread even among our country armies」

    nobility, and so on.
    “And”->”After all that” then all her own talent was recognized

    No man can tolerate the harassment that is very troublesome “for”->”from” the guild Faction.

    「No, because they are new hunters with expectation, they won’t anything like that」 (Chris)–>「No, just because they are new promising hunters , it doesn’t mean they will do anything like that」 (Chris)

    Even man in this country but aren’t suitable for the girls, which will become disadvantageous to the country are also prevented.->Even if it is man from this country. If they are not suitable for the girls. It will become disadvantageous for the country. So they will be unallowed to be with the girls.

    In this way, the 「Red Oath」’s hurdles to have a lover “is”-> “have raised” very high,

    people more that seems like the “marchant’s”->”merchant’s” family.

    hunt and collecting quest, one “sticked to”->”is waiting in” the guild.
    And “Rena’s that one.”->”Rena has been chosen”

    At the “moment”->”time” when a good request was issued

    Also, it was natural that Mile uses the “search”=”detection” magic from the start.

    way she went through “once”-> “before” in a hurry “”->”for” almost a year ago.

  12. “Of course, we don’t permit officially transferring overseas, it’s a temporary expedition.”
    It is the second time I find the term “oversea” when speaking of Mile journey from her original country and his new country, but it seem she never moved by ship or through a sea. [Images of Miles swimming an average number of kilometers … ;-)].
    Searching for synonyms I have found “in foreign lands” , “in foreign parts” and “out of the country”.
    So probably “”Of course, we don’t permit officially transferring in foreign lands, it’s a temporary expedition.”
    I suppose than that and oversea are synonyms in Japanese as Japan is a island, so all foreign countries are oversea, but for foreign nations that have a lot of land borders there is a big difference.
