Arge Chapter 215: Fox Loli training ground
(This chapter is Kuzuha’s POV)
*Zun*, my head hits against the ground and I frown in pain.
I get up in a hurry to shake off the smell of the soil while Felnote-san still holds her wooden sword
「……Kuzuha, (Daiyobu) are you still okay / can you still keep going?」(Felnote)
Her quiet words weren’t mean to ask about my injury but whether to continue.
The answer is obvious. Instead of words, I run toward her with my alter ego.
Simultaneous attacks from all directions to make her confused with my alter ego. I can handle evasion and defense by myself…!!
「Multi-stage simultaneous attack. That’s your greatest strength, but…」(Felnote)
「…I can understand (read) everything from the signs」(Felnote)
「Uu~u, I’m still immature ~desu~no…」(Kuzuha)
I intended to make an all-out attack to block her escape route.
However, she didn’t run away, rather, in an instant, she judged (recognize) me from all of my alter ego and defeat me, the main body.
「In the first place, why did I find out that I was genuine …?」(Kuzuha)
「 Your main body stays in the safest place」(Felnote)
It’s simple but it’s true.
I can create as many alter ego as I want but I only have one main body.
Because I understand that and the alter ego born from me, I tend to put the alter ego in a more dangerous position.
「That’s all for today.
Even if you want to pack so many things, it still won’t do」(Felnote)
「Thank you very much (Arigatō Gozaimashita ~wa), Felnote-san」(Felnote)
Does it hurt anywhere?
If it’s a minor injury, I’ll heal you.
Or do you want Arge to heal you?」()
「…I’m sorry for the bother (Mōshi Wakearimasenga), but may I ask you to heal me (Onegai Dekimasuno)?」(Kuzuha)
I ask her wholeheartedly and Felnote-san agrees to heal me with a smile.
…She has seen through me.
I don’t have to say that I don’t want Arge-san to know about this.
That’s why Felnote-san will heal me even if I don’t say anything.
「I’m sorry, it must be hurt」(Felnote)
「No, this is what I asked for. I don’t mind」(Kuzuha)
The bruise and pain from the wooden sword have completely disappeared.
I haven’t recovered from my fatigue, I still can’t compare with Arge-san.
Let’s endure this fatigue as proof that I am still immature.
「Richelle-san, thank you very much」(Kuzuha)
When I bowed to Richelle-san, who has been worried, she got a relieved smile.
I don’t understand her language but I know she cares.
「As I said earlier, you shouldn’t think too much about it.」(Felnote)
「I know (Wakatte ~orimasu ~wa)
I don’t think I can catch up with Felnote-san or Arge-san soon」(Kuzuha)
My mother was a big fox with nine tails.
My tails have yet to reach my mother’s level.
Felnote-san and Arge-san are powerful enough to even fight my mother when she is serious.
As a fox with a shortage of tails, I’m sure I’m still not strong enough to fight side by side with them.
In fact, from the mock battle the other day, I still haven’t found a way if I was fighting “Obsidian”.
「But… to prepare for a big battle, spoiling isn’t allowed」(Kuzuha)
「I’m saying it’s too painful」(Felnote)
When she hit on my forehead, I raised my voice in surprise.
Her two-colored eyes are gently narrowed more than before.
「…The two of you are really similar as friends」(Felnote)
「Eh, what, what are you saying (Naniga ~desuno)?!」(Kuzuha)
「You two are really worried about your friends but are too careless about your own.
In a way, it’s balanced. But I’m worried when you are alone.」(Felnote)
「No…way,… is that so…?」(Kuzuha)
I didn’t mean to do that myself but it seems like she is pretty worried.
As I’m looking up while feeling somewhat uncomfortable (upset), her expression is gentle as ever.
She seems to consult a child, it’s a little embarrassing.
「Well, I know how you feel.
I don’t want to be a burden as well. And above all… Arge is important, right?」(Felnote)
「Of course, it is (desu~wa).
Is Felnote-san the same?」(Kuzuha)
That is, well… well, the meaning is a little different…
If you ask me, I like her, but uhm…」(Felnote)
I like her!
I really like her!
She is my benefactor after all!」(Felnote)
Originally, Felnote-san is a knight of the Kingdom. She left the front line due to an injury on duty.
I heard that it was the Arge-san who healed her lost eyesight.
For different reasons and circumstances, we are both saved by Arge-san.
「That’s why I understand your feelings, so if I have free time, I’ll help you train like this」(Felnote)
「Thank you very much (Arigatō Gozaimasu Desuno)」(Kuzuha)
I know the power of Felnote-san from our travels.
That’s why I want to do my best training with her to become stronger.
「…… Don’t be too impatient. You see, Richelle is also worried」(Felnote)
「……I’ll be careful (Kiwo Tsuke Masu~wa」(Kuzuha)
They are worried that I shouldn’t be impatient.
They are companions who have traveled with me all the time, they must understand me well, I must be too impatient.
When I breathe in to calm down, the smell of grass is pleasant.
It was pleasant to have the training ground outside.
「Why don’t you go to Arge for a change?
She must be sleeping anyway」(Felnote)
Well, that’s about it for today.
Thank you very much (Arigatō Gozaimashita ~wa), Felnote-san」(Kuzuha)
After bowing down to Felnote-san, I left the training ground.
Just by thinking so, my pace naturally accelerated and my tail shook.
