Arms Otome- Chapter 9
It was around the evening when we returned to the village.
The distance between the cave and the village is about an hour on foot.
Our travel time was more than that though since we made a little bit of a detour.
「Oh you girls, Have you just arrived?」
The moment we arrived at the inn, Gamund-san approaching us.
Hes is mounting on a horse. Are they going to the cave to exterminate demons by traveling on a horse?.
「Will you be going to the cave now to get rid of the monsters?」
「No no, we have already finished it right before noon」
Oh, I heard they were going on a subjugation today I didn’t think that they would move out that early.
「Some magicians were also included, but for those kind of threats, it was just a right practice partners for the knights」
Fumu, fumu, well for fighting those kind of demons, magic users wouldn’t be really needed, I guess.
But you know, Going out on a horse just to that, could it be they somehow progressing on discovering the corpse user?
「Actually, a report about a suspicious undead was received. That’s why I’m currently organizing the troop to verify it」
I see, but well it’s still morning… wouldn’t it be hard to use the undead during this time?
「Well then good luck and be careful out there.」
I think Gamund is quite strong, well I also have no idea how corpse users use their skills.
「Well, you girls should be careful too. If you are in the city of Varsa, you should visit me, I’ll be your guide since you’re still new to this country」
The city of Varsa, the exploration of the southern cave is over and it may just be the right time to move out.
「Actually I’m also about to leave this village and head towards Varsa.」
「I see, then, the pleasure after returning to town has increased by one, at that time I would like you girls to have dinner with us again.」
「Yes, please treat us at that time!」
I replied with a face filled with a smile, Gamund-san is a good person.
I really hope that the next time we meet he won’t be turned into an undead.
n… I don’t know if it can be done but I suppose I should try it.
I will try out the special skill [Protection of purification] to Gamund-san and the knights.
The next moment I close my eyes and pray, my hands are aligned toward Gamund-san.
Then I feel a surge of power gathering in my hands. Let’s see if I can do this.
「Gamund-san and the knight, do you feel anything that seems uncomfortable?」
「N, Did you do something to us, jou-chan?」
「Well, I’m just about to give you a little blessing」
When I released the power gathered in my hands to Gamund-san, Gamund-san and the Knights were wrapped in a flickering light for a moment.
Oh, It looks like the effect is per group based.
All of the knights have been wrapped in the flickering light.
「Jou-chan, what was that power just now?」
Gamund-san and the knights had a surprised face. Some of them were quite surprised, they staggered a bit.
「It’s a blessing that gives protection against undead. Just think of it as a funny trick put unto you」
「Fumu… It certainly feels like a pure force seeping into my body. I did not expect that jou-chan had the power of a priest」
I see, It seems there are some people who can use similar type of power.
From the word priest, it seems that there are people with power that can use skill like to this.
「Perhaps coming to this village and meet such people is a fate」
Iya iya, That’s just an exaggeration you know.
「Don’t waste this blessings ok, now go and do be careful」
Gamund-san finally moved out along with the knights placing himself behind everyone.
Everybody be careful, and so the knights finally left the village.
While eating dinner, we were listening to the Inn lady’s story about the subjugation of demons at the north.
Oh, and I also introduced Jenny to the Inn Lady, there doesn’t seem to be any reaction to the way Jenny dressed.
For me, it seems like It’s violating public morals but, well as to be expected of another world, this stuff seems to be common.
(When I talked about this story, Jenny cried, I feel like I’ve been a horrible master)
It was unexpected though, since I just got Erina yesterday, I wasn’t expecting to add another one the next day.
「There is also a story about a hero…(Inn Lady’s Story Continues)」
Although the Inn lady’s story was quite exaggerated, It surely depicts the strength of the knights.
The inn lady was strangely good at acting too. The surrounding people also forgot to continue eating and just listening.
「Well then Okami-san, we will be going to our room now.」
「Master, I think doing this is a waste of money」
「Ojou-sama, wasting money is not a good thing to do」
「Milord, sleeping on the floor is fine by me if it means to be together Milord」
Areeee…. I was rejected all at once … Hold on, isn’t the last one seemingly strange?
Because it cannot be helped, I decided to compromise the room with two.
I was pondering if I am going to sleep with Ente and Erina, but I decided to just sleep with Ente tonight after seeing her begging looks to me.
Jenny?… not an option… although it would probably be good, but it feels like I will lose something If I were to sleep with her. Cheer up, me….
Two nice bodies are currently sharing the same bed ……..
Yup, this seems to be quite acceptable at the moment…
「Master, your thoughts are leaking out」
Ooops, Bad that was kind of rude…
It is certain that it will not be enough no matter how much money we get – but
[Possession: 600,226 Veil]
I guess it has increased a bit since the time I bought erina and was almost out of money.
It has been around 5 or 6 days since I arrived here, it hasn’t been a week.
But, I was not lonely at all because I met Ente, Erina and Jenny.
I think by seeing Ente who is sleeping beside me for the sake of protecting me, along with the other children with me. I’m thinking that I need a place where I can work hard and have peace of mind!
「I am well indebted to you」
「I won’t be lonely anymore, so don’t push yourself too much ok?」
I will talk to the Inn Lady about leaving the village today.
I will never forget the taste of bread and tree nuts and root vegetables soup that I ate when I was hungry.
I will be staying here when I come back again.
I was thinking such thought while hugging the Inn lady.
「Thank you very much for everything, jii-san」
I also gave my greetings tojii-san that helped me when I arrived here.
「We are planning to go to the village in the east from here, how about you girls, want to come with us?」
I’m thankful for the offer from jii-san, but I also have a goal. I would like to proceed toward that goal.
「I’m thankful for the offer, but we will be proceeding to the city of Versa from here…」
The town of Varsa, was made to spend time with ease and made friend.
「Town of Varsa, I see. We will go to Varsa, but we still be going to other villages for a while. At that time we hope to see each other in a good physical condition.」
「Yes, at that time please show me something rare again」
「Ho ho ho, you sure like that strange bow. Well, I guess if we find something rare or unusual items, we will stock them.」
Jii-san was laughing while looking over Erina, who is holding the bow, well she is in fact the bow itself…
Then, my head was stroked by Jii-san.
After all this time he is still treating me like his own granddaughter, it feels kind of ticklish.
Although I lost my father at an early age, I had never been conscious of my father, but It might somehow feel like this.
For jii-san, my appearance and age are like granddaughter.
After purchasing necessary supplies from the grocery store, we finally left the village.
The next target, the town of Varsa.
I’m excited about meeting with people I haven’t seen yet, and take the first step.
————————Walking to Destination———————————–>>>
The town of Varsa
It is said to be a big town after Dimes kingdom.
While Dimes has major facilities as the capital, the city of Varsa is said to be a city of trade.
The belt country is located at the eastern end of the continent, but the Dimes kingdom is even further toward east of it.
It is in a position that can be called the eastern end of the continent.
In contrast, the town of Varsa is located at the center of the trade route with other countries to the west.
In addition there are many villages and small towns, including Kante village in the neighborhood.
The knight team led by Gamund-san was the second Order of Belt County who was stationed in the city of Varsa.
By the way the First Order is always resided in Dimes kingdom.
There seems to be another Knight Orders, but it seems that they are moving a lot according to their missions.
So, I’m going to the city of Varsa, located northwest from the village of Kante, but I will discover demons with a reasonable frequency while passing through the road.
The monsters that comes out are starving dogs, tusk grasshoppers (namelessly named) and plain-demons.
Plain Demons is a kind of child-like demon that comes out on meadows and plains, “The so-called ordinary goblin is a green-demon.」
Ente, Erina, and Jenny are collaborating with each other and easily wiped out all the demons.
I’m collecting the light particles from a demon while being protected by three people.
Un… thank you for doing this for me and sorry that I can’t help with anything.
As expected I feel restless since I have always been working with a company before.
It’s quite hard to calm down with just being protected.
But it’s impossible to deal with weapons.
I cannot wield a weapon myself even if I tried nor Improve practicing with it.
Even if I tried with Ente’s Sword it is still useless.
It seems that the games system of [Arms Otome] has been implemented into my body.
But if it’s now… I think my strength has slightly improved.
Maybe buying a dagger for self protection would also be good idea at the moment.
Three girls are just so reluctant to fight with only their weapon forms.
「There is no need for the master to approach the demons. I will never let something like when we first met happen again.」
「It is alright for Ojou-sama to have weapons for self defense but, It is no good to go to the front line with it. There is a suitable place for everyone and ojou-sama should be the one in the commanding post giving orders to everyone」
「If milord got even a scratch to her skin, I will lick it of for you if that ever happens」
Because everyone told me thinking my well being, I can’t just go out in the front, as for jenny well it’s just like her to say that.
Well what Erina said is true.
You will never see the main character of [Arms Otome] fight in the front line and just let the weapons do their thing.
It was almost two days walking from the village of Kante to the city of Varza, which is about two days walk on foot. It would be faster if you ride of on a carriage.
There is no other village along the road. but small huts have been scattered on the highway so that travelers can use it for resting.
Of course it’s a small hut, so if some groups collaborate, we will have to share lodging camp but we haven’t meet other travelers at the moment, so we don’t have to worry about it.
In the village of Kante, the Inn Lady said that there were few people staying, but in this world it seems like travelers are rare.
The biggest problem would probably be the amount of demons, it will be such along the highway, and if you go down far into the highway, the stronger monsters will be the one messing with you.
A person with some circumstances, a hunter or a peddler … …. It is those people who travel roughly.
We probably seemed to be a group that has ridiculous circumstances.
「The day is getting darker let’s take a rest for today over that hut」
I found a few huts today, so I decided to sleep for the night.
「Uwaaa … it’s quite dusty, don’t you think?」
「It seems that it has not been used for quite some time」
Ente and I sighed while looking at each other. I still appreciate it even if its just to protect from the night dew.
「Well then shall I decide the order of the guards at night?」
Even though it is inside the hut, we may be attacked by monsters, and thieves may also attacking.
「In addition, I will participate in the watch guard.」
After my declaration, the three people disagree, the moment I mentioned it, as expected.
I am the only one who has not fought during the day, because I can not do that I do not mind do this much.
I may have the youngest appearance but I am still the oldest around here.
No, simply, if entities are in terms of age, it will be higher for the weapons … The era they were made were from ancient times after all…
At midnight, I am currently the one watching.
To my surprise, there are three moons in this world, it really gives off the feeling that I’m in a different world now.
That’s why it’s not that dark at night, the moonlight is shining faintly, of course if there are rain clouds it is expected to be dark.
I look at the three people sleeping over the chair that was in the hut.
The three of them are sleeping in a big blanket.
If you look at the way they are sleeping like this, they do not have the impression that they have trampled the demons along the way.
Everyone is sleeping with a cute face, and if Jenny didn’t have that creepy smile, she probably looked way much cuter.
Fumu… Let’s update their statuses for the time being.
Update for Ente’s enemy attack debuff and Erina’s double damage and…
Does Jenny have additional damage done by lightning strikes?
Ente is always the closest to the enemy so I will give her a bit more points.
They are worried about me being hurt, yet I also do not want them to get hurt either.
My physical strength also rises as their level goes up, and it seems that if a big demon attacking, it can be tolerated more than ten times now. [ED: She’s an M]
It is time to switch, but I would like to see the sleeping face of these children for a while more.
Only the insect sound that echoed, the time passed.
In the morning, when I wake up, there are three people in front of my eyes, these people sure likes getting up early.
Ente and Jenny also shows sparkling eyes, even though Erina who was doing the last watch.
I wonder if something good happened, or maybe did they have a good dream?
Does Ente dreaming too?
While idly thinking about such things, I regain my consciousness.
Well then, I would really like to arrive today.
If we go without problems, we will probably be arriving in the evening.
The number of monsters will also go down as we approach the vicinity.
Varsa has a lot of traders and the Order is also stationed, so they also do monster subjugation regularly to make it safer.
We did not do a lot of battles, since our target is to arrive at Varsa straight today.
After climbing a small hill, the city of Varsa will finally be visible.
「Woooah ……… It is was much bigger than I thought. 」
I unconsciously let out a voice of admiration.
The town that colored by dusk is surrounded by the outer wall.
The city scape can be seen from the hill is filled with buildings to the extent that cannot be compared with the Kante village.
You can’t see it clearly from here, but it will be a miscellaneous view.
Trade is flourishing and it seems that various cultures have been mixed up.
It is already a thrilling thing to just stay in a town in a different world, but I am looking forward to it.
「Fufufu, Ojou-sama is enjoying herself, don’t you think?」
A voice calling me out with a weird tone by Erina. Was it written on my face that obviously?
Let’s go to town anyway, we have to search for tonight’s accommodation.
