Cathia Chapter 1-2: Reason for entrusting

[word_balloon id=”unset” src=”http://loliomamoritai.website/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Cathy-Cathia-Icon.png” size=”M” position=”L” name_position=”under_avatar” radius=”true” name=”Cathia” avatar_flip=”h” balloon=”talk” balloon_shadow=”true” font_size=”18″]…Fu~u.
Returning to the story, is it impossible for you to go there on your own?[/word_balloon]

As the play calmed down, we returned to the living room of the mountain lodge where I lived.
I try to resume the conversation while encouraging him to pull his chair and sit down.

My Ojii-sama looks slender for someone training. He sat down slowly and said…

[word_balloon id=”unset” src=”http://loliomamoritai.website/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Cathia-Tim-Icon-300×300.png” size=”M” position=”L” name_position=”under_avatar” radius=”true” name=”Tim” avatar_flip=”h” balloon=”talk” balloon_shadow=”true” font_size=”18″]Umm.
I’m sorry but I don’t know if I can reach the royal capital with this body.[/word_balloon]

My grandfather hurt his back three years ago when I was fourteen.

Until then, my grandfather used to have a mock battle with me every morning but no matter how hard he trained, he was already in his seventies.
It seems that he couldn’t resist the approaching annual wave.

By the way, I never won against him in mock combat.
If I didn’t know him well, I wouldn’t think he was old. And now what I heard that he had the title of Divine Sword, I was convinced.

Just a little, I wanted to at least be able to win against him once before he hurt my back.
Rather than regrettable… It’s a waste.

As for now, in the morning, I asked my Ojii-sama to look at / observe my combat training.
In his spare time after finishing the housework, he hunts monsters that are annoying to the village at the foot of the mountain because of his experience in combat.

It may be a very annoying story to you but there are no other people who can take my place.
I didn’t train you in a way that might easily be killed.[/word_balloon]

There’s a danger of life. It’s certainly true because I will be involved in a political dispute.

Even so, I think the reason, why my Ojii-sama said so, is because he trusts my ability as his word says, not because he is merciless.

It makes me happy because I can read it from his facial expression after many years of association.

[word_balloon id=”unset” src=”http://loliomamoritai.website/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Cathia-Tim-Icon-300×300.png” size=”M” position=”L” name_position=”under_avatar” radius=”true” name=”Tim” avatar_flip=”h” balloon=”talk” balloon_shadow=”true” font_size=”18″]Besides, you said you wanted to travel for a long time.
Well, it’s different from a carefree trip and the first destination is fixed to the capital. But there’s also the aspect that I want you to get out of this mountain and get to know the outside world.[/word_balloon]

Certainly, as a former Japanese with a previous life, I am curious about the fantasy cityscape.
I’ve been living in the mountains since I was picked up by my Ojii-sama.
So, he speaks frankly.

[word_balloon id=”unset” src=”http://loliomamoritai.website/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Cathia-Tim-Icon-300×300.png” size=”M” position=”L” name_position=”under_avatar” radius=”true” name=”Tim” avatar_flip=”h” balloon=”talk” balloon_shadow=”true” font_size=”18″]Well, if you hear about tourist attractions of the towns so many times, you will want to see it yourself.[/word_balloon]

Old stories that I heard from Ojii-sama also gave me the urge to go.
The predecessor king, who has light footwork, often goes to diplomacy and inland inspections himself. Ojii-sama seems to have often accompanied him to various places as an escort.
However, since I heard the story of Divine Sword for the time, I think Ojii-sama consciously avoided it.

Ojii-sama seems to hate standing out.
That being said, I’m sure he would feel lonely in the fledging but I’d like to take on this matter.

I want to live up to my Ojii-sama’s trust. And he rarely asked me for anything, so it’s a good opportunity for filial piety.

However, the problem still remains.

[word_balloon id=”unset” src=”http://loliomamoritai.website/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Cathy-Cathia-Icon.png” size=”M” position=”L” name_position=”under_avatar” radius=”true” name=”Cathia” avatar_flip=”h” balloon=”talk” balloon_shadow=”true” font_size=”18″]Well, I’m fine with going but would it be possible for me to support the predecessor King, Spike-sama and his granddaughter, Princess Lily-sama?
Even if you say I’m Divine Sword’s disciple, such a little girl lacks persuasive power and has no track record.
Besides, isn’t it impossible for you to live in a mountain lodge alone?[/word_balloon]

When I asked for consent and the remaining questions, Ojii-sama nodded lightly as if he had already prepared an answer.

[word_balloon id=”unset” src=”http://loliomamoritai.website/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/Cathia-Tim-Icon-300×300.png” size=”M” position=”L” name_position=”under_avatar” radius=”true” name=”Tim” avatar_flip=”h” balloon=”talk” balloon_shadow=”true” font_size=”18″]I see (Sou~ka), so, you are willing to go, then?
Just hearing that is good enough for the time being.
I have an idea about various problems.
I plan to go down the mountain, so we will go together to the village when you are ready for the trip.
First, we will meet the liaison.[/word_balloon]

… Is the liaison the person who brought the letter?
He was staying in the village waiting for a reply.

Or rather, getting ready for a trip and leaving as we are?
Deployment sure is fast!

I thought it would be a few days later so that I can prepare my heart…
