Mile Chapter 128: Total Defeat
「Hah hah hah hah hah hah …」 (Red Oath + Wonder Three)
Seven girls whose clothes are in a mess, rolling in the room exhausted.
But it’s not an ultimate fight but a cat fight.
「What’s with these girls! Why do we lose to such young students!!」 (Rena)
Rena complains with other members of Red Oath.
Yes, the fight result was a complete defeat of the 「Red Oath」
The place is a room in the girls’ dormitory and their opponents are ordinary students not hunters.
Thus, Red Oath can’t use any magic with high damage power or crowd control magic.
「Red Oath」who tried to escape by suppressing opponents with only strengthening magics and restraint magics, they couldn’t deal with restraint magics and water magics with non-chant. Red Oath were easily seized because of it.
「Why, why …?」 (Mile)
Even Red Oath had limited their power but to think they were easily held down by restraint magic like this. Marcella answered with a proud face to the miserable Mile
「Adel-san, did you really think we were playing for over a year since you were gone?」 (Marcella)
「Ugu … Even so, you are improving too much …」 (Mile)
Mile feels like crying.
「Well then, shall we continue with the story?」 (Marcella)
「… Then, how about I sell the territory and get cash …」 (Mile)
「You can’t do that!」 (Marcella)
Mile’s proposal was instantly denied by Marcella.
「The territory is a deposit from the King of our Kingdom, you can earn the aristocratic privilege as compensation for keeping it, maintaining it and developing it! You will not be able to sell it without His Majesty’s permission!」
Maevis nods to that as well.
「If so, I will return it to His Majesty … Or, give it to my relatives」 (Mile)
「Well, you may do that for a normal case. But this time, your family had a lot of scandal and trouble. By the order of His Majesty, a royal magistrate have taken care of the administration for the time being. Until you, the rightful heir comes back and take over the reigns in the Askham territory That means, no-one but you, Adel, can take over Askham territory」 (Marcella)
Mile’s proposal was once again denied by Marcella.
「Adel-san, His Majesty is unwilling to let anyone but you to take over the family. Your uncle (grandfather’s sister’s son) also would like to have Askham’s territory. But even if he had the inheritance rights of the Viscount Askham’s territory, His Majesty still reject him. No matter how many times he tried to explain that he is also a legitimate successor, His Majesty still denied it. I think His Majesty did that to avoid him planning any harm to Adel-san with the succession problem … His Majesty King seems to have set Adel as the owner of the Askham territory, in the state …」 (Marcella) (T.N: that “set” is Katakana that mean like say Set in English for the puns next)
Mile who should feel dreadful. Suddenly thinks of a salad oil set.
「Ho… how …」 (Red Oath)
Red Oath is somewhat feeling impatient about Mile.
At that time, a black cat came into the room through the window.
「Ah, Key Tail!」 (Mile) (T.N: name of that cat かぎしっぽ)
The cat hasn’t met Mile for a long time, he is the so called「Insect repellent-sama」
The cat rubs its back on Mile and Mile is smiling happy.
「… Did he come because he smell food or something?」 (Maevis)
「No, isn’t just his back is itchy? 」 (Pauline)
「Is he trying to say that he is Mile’s servant? Is not it an appeal to his owner?」 (Rena)
「Please be quiet!」 (Mile) (T.N: Urusai Desu)
It must be the first time, Mile raises her voice to Maevis, Pauline, Rena …
After that, instead of persuasion Marcella overlooks Mile.
「Well, it’s still too early to be locked up by engagement or marriage … You are still 12 years old … … Please enjoy liberty for a while now」 (Marcella)
Even Marcella so said, Mile had an early birthday, so she was 13 years old already.
「Ma, Marcella-san …」 (Mile)
Mile feels like crying, talking to Marcella
「You still have a little time, lets talk a little more」
「Wa~iii!」 (Mile) (T.N: crying SFX)
And then Mile, No… Adel and Marcella keep talking with each other about when Adel left the school.
The Rena trio kept silent and watched on.
Because they can talk to Mile anytime later, they didn’t intend to interfere with this little time for the Marcella trio.
「Isn’t it enough?」 (Rena)
Rena finally raises her voice in the state of the four girls who will keep talking until dawn if no-one stops them.
It’s not good if it’s too late.
Students aren’t allowed to enter or leave school in the evening.
For students who want to leave at midnight or on weekday mornings, they will need a permit from the school to show the gatekeeper.
It’s regrettable, but all good things must come to an end.
And Marcella also understands it.
「It can’t be helped, but it’s not like we can’t meet again, I hope we can see you soon, Adel」 (Marcella)
「Yes, of course!」 (Mile)
Then Mile, Marcella, Monica, and Orianna say their farewell.
「Ah, that’s right!」
As Marcella just remembered something, she reminds the Red Oath.
「There’s a guard, well, although he can’t keep watch in the school. But when someone who isn’t student goes out, they may be followed or be checked」
「Huh……」 (Red Oath + Mile)
Red Oath are agape.
「Ah, I think that this time is okay. Fortunately, Adel-san wasn’t spotted, the two others wore school clothes properly and the last one was probably seen as their older sister. It’s still okay because you three looks like 2 students who invited your big sister to the school. However, please be careful when coming next time. Also, I think that all letters and luggage addressed to us, are probably all checked. Previously, I had tried hiring someone to send me a letter that I prepared, when I got back my letter from him, I found that the deviation of the sealed paper, the order of the cards that I arranged were changed a little. Which means someone already opened it」
「………… 」 (Red Oath minus Pauline)
Everyone was stunned by the cautiousness of Marcella.
(This child, she is the same age as Mile … … No, Mile is out of the norm. But when it comes to emergency, she is the most reliable ally. How scary, is this the power of the lower aristocracy of the Brandel Kingdom!) (Rena)
(If it was me, I will not notice such things or even think of it … To think, she is still only 12 years old child…) (Maevis)
Rena and Maevis were surprised by the insight of Marcella, who is still 12 years old.
Only Pauline had a face like she thought it was just Average (quite easy) … (T.N: I try the joke, is average okay there? or I must use quite easy)
However, Red Oath were not all aware.
Even Marcella, who always takes the initiative as a leader of 「Wonder Three」all the time.
But among the three of them, the one who really plans out most everything isn’t Marcella, it’s unobtrusive Orianna.
And about that, most of the time, Orianna didn’t speak but went into listener mode to remember and analyze all the information.
She always tells Marcella everything important. This allows her to have the most optimal solutions, and makes sure everyone thinks that Marcella did so by herself.
Orianna was a poor commoner who entered a noble school with a scholarship, so her path into the school wasn’t based on general admission but rather a super difficult one.
Actually, she was the brain (strategist ) of 「Wonder Three」
I’m pretty much done with Kaoru Manga Chapter.
