T.N: This is the post-war and the last chapter of this Arc.
This chapter is in Mile’s POV.
From tomorow, I will translate Arge (full Arc worth of chapters)
After Arge, I will translate Kaoru (Full Arc worth of chapters)
After Arge, I will translate Cathy (Full Arc worth of chapters)
Then we will return to Mile’s Arc again.
I will translate Mira using the extra time each day. It will take a rather long time for each chapter.
Ranting: Sigh~, I might get complains from readers for too many official pictures again.
Mile Chapter 243: The Capital Again
『『Excuse me……』』(Monika + Oriana)
While saying so, Monika and Oriana bring the chair from their room and enter Marcella’s room.
Marcella also arranges her chair in front of the desk, and everyone sits down together.
『How is the fight against the Albarn Empire…?』(Monika)
『Because our Army has an overwhelming force, I think there will be no problem』(Marcella)
Monika worried asking about the situation and Marcella calmly replied so.
Actually, it’s not a lie.
Marcella, who was originally a noble’s daughter and has become the princess’ friend, now has many connections with the Royal Palace so she can obtain quite accurate information.
Of course, not everything can be told.
But this time, it was a serious incident concerning the Ascham territory, so the princess was able to tell Marcella without problems.
Besides, in the first place, it wasn’t secret information, so there wasn’t any problem.
It’s not a large-scale military force dispatching with a secret mission.
It is a sortie to defend the aristocratic territory of the frontier from the invasion of the enemy.
So notifying that fact will prove the Kingdom will neither abandon the territory nor its citizen.
It was ordained for the commander of the Kingdom Army.
It was a great opportunity to raise the name of the first Prince.
『And, before that…』(Marcella)
Marcella stopped talking and looked around the room.
Suddenly, she protruded her right arm to her bed.
『There you are!』(Marcella)
『『Hi~iii!!』』(Monika + Oriana)
On the bed, a shadow appeared while screaming.
Monika and Oriana also screamed as well.
『I knew you were there…』(Marcella)
Marcella grabbed Mile’s clothes around her neck and shaking her.
『 Didn’t I tell you before?』(Marcella)
And Marcella told Mile casually.
The same word as before.
『Adel, do you really think that I can’t find you?』(Marcella)
『A… haha, hahaha …』(Mile)
Mile had a dry laugh, no, now she is Adel.
And Marcella gently murmured in her heart.
(Because the bed cushion was dented unnaturally in the shape of the butt last time and this time…) (Marcella)
(T.N: So Mile’s butt made her bust?)
Then Adel and Marcella report each other’s things from each other.
Even so, there are not many topics for Marcella who just stays at the school.
The talks are mostly from Adel.
『And then, to Junou, the commander of our land military, I told him that word…』(Adel)
『『『 There’re Devils (Akuma) in the house!!』』』(Wonder Three)
Adel omits Goddess Phenomenon part.
『Sell one cup of water with five silver coins…』(Adel)
『『『 There’re Demons (Oni) in the house!!』』』(Wonder Three)
『We earned totally 4000 gold coins,
half of it was given to our soldiers to repair the damage,
another half of the remaining 2,000 gold coins spread to the villages in the Ascham territory that we asked to move,
and Pauline is half-frustrated…』(Adel)
Even though she is also a daughter of a merchant, Monika seemed to not attach much to money.
If this is Pauline, even if it’s not her own money, she will get excited just by listening to the story of business opportunity.
『… … and what about the remaining 1,000 gold coins?』(Monika)
Adel deviates her line of sight to Monika’s question.
『Anyway, that’s why,
There were no deserted Imperial Soldiers became bandits.
Our land security wouldn’t get worse.
the Imperial Army withdrew with no major accident.
Even if they plan to invade next time,
I think that they at least will avoid the Ascham territory』(Adel)
Adel explained that the transformation scene was 《just disguise》and the storage of goods by the item box 《carried out secretly》, but of course, Marcella has already guessed the truth.
However, she will not mention it in front of Mile, that’s what friend for.
『That’s probably the case.
Everyone from both sides managed to survive at the last minute because of the disappearance of the mystery of supplies, the appearance of the goddess, and the compassion of the saintess.
If there was no goddess, Ascham might also lose to the Imperial Army.
And then there would be a large-scale battle between our Kingdom Army and the Imperial Army.
Anyway, if both sides don’t suffer serious damage and the Ascham territory is stable, there is no problem』(Marcella)
『I don’t think so…』(Oriana)
For Marcella, this seems to be the best result, but Oriana doesn’t seem to think so.
『In order to prevent the next invasion, we should have destroyed the weakened Imperial Army…
Imperial soldiers who returned safely will one day invade somewhere in our country.
And there will be no guarantee that the next invasion will end without any major damage.
Next time, many soldiers and farmers will die …』(Oriana)
『But, to reduce the deaths that may occur in the future,
Would you kill all 5000 soldiers now?』(Marcella)
『Well, I have not said that!』(Oriana)
Marcella seems to disagree with Oriana’s idea, but as a patriot, and if she thinks logically, Oriana is right.
Marcella knew it well.
However, it’s unacceptable for Marcella. To slaughter those who run away, even though it’s enemy soldiers.
『… For me, 1000 lives of our own soldiers and farmers are more important than the lives of 5000 enemy soldiers』(Oriana)
Monika muttered so.
『But, if they buy items at our shop, both the enemy soldiers and our citizens are important!』(Monika)
Ahaha, finishing with a little joke of Monika, everyone laughs together.
( Monika is still seriously taking care of Marcella and Oriana.
Monika-san is still as usual…
It has been more than a year and a half since then, but everyone still doesn’t change.
Oh, by the way, everyone will graduate soon…) (Adel)
The next time we meet, everyone won’t be students anymore
When I thought so, as Adel, I felt a little lonely.
The four of us talk late into the night, however, I must withdraw soon.
Apart from me, Adel, the other three have their classes tomorrow.
I am sorry, but we can meet again later.
I think so. And as Adel, I promise to meet again soon and leave Marcella’s room.
If it’s Adel alone, she can magically disappear and jump over the fence so she can go in and out at midnight easily.
Well, if Adel hugs someone and jumps with optical magic, there’s no problem if she brings other people.
However, Rena’s trio did not intend to disturb Adel’s former friends’ meeting.
Then, the girl who jumped over the fence of the school.
The girl returned from 《Adel》to 《Mile》and headed back to the inn.
She kept the optical magic just in case of emergency and canceling it after entering the inn.
The name Adel is the name I only use when I’m with my school’s classmates.
Otherwise, my name is Mile.
Adel was born again from Misato in the previous life and got a new life.
And after throwing out her name, she is Mile now.
With this new name, I will live in a new world.
Then Mile spread both arms and jumped.
(Papi, yo~n!) (Mile)
… By all means, it seemed that Mile couldn’t be serious.
Is it because Mile has such a personality?
When Mile opens the door of the room, the lamp is still light, Rena’s trio is still talking.
『Oh, you all are still awake?』(Mile)
『We waited until you get back. If we went to sleep first, weren’t you lonely then?』(Rena)
Here in this group, I have my place.
A girl named 『Mile』’s place…
『Oh, come on, do not hug me, it’s hot!』(Rena)
Rena tried to push off Mile while her face became a little red.
However, she used no power at all.
『Rena is getting it this time…』(Pauline)
Pauline is muttering so while smiling.
And Maevis is wondering while extending both hands. Why did Mile always embrace Rena, who always seems to be annoyed with that, but not her?
Actually, when Mile clung to Maevis, her face would be caught between Maevis’ chest and her hands, so instinctively Mile avoided her.
As a result, it was unlikely that Miles would hug Maevis unless there was some extra cushion like Pauline.
And it was long before Maevis knew it…
『I will sleep … …』(Rena)
Marcella: Just so you know, the first one Adel ever hugs is ME.
Rena: But right now, she wants to hug ME.
