Episode 2 “Half-elf Leila”
It seems that there are no signs of re-invasion, either because Tyria and the Marquis of Erakis are putting a strict guard near the border.
The remaining concern is only the treatment of his subordinates, but thanks to the order written by Tyria, everyone was treated like a human being by a doctor. Because there were too many people, it became a case of occupying all the hospital and neighboring inn, but this can not be helped.
“I thought so, can’t see anything.”
Chrono looked up at the dirty ceiling of the hospital and muttered with a dark mood. According to a doctor, it seems that it can be cured if it is a high ranking divine technique, but it is synonymous with being declared blinded. Since a high – level user is limited.
“… Is it good enough that I didn’t have an infection?”
The treatment that Chrono received was carefully washed and cleaned with water. In Europe, until the modern age, they poured a boiling oil into the wound for disinfection. And pressing a burned iron bar against a wound for the sake of it, This is a decent treatment method compared with that.
Chrono pulled out of bed and quickly changed into military uniform which was based on black. As soon as he came out of the hospital room, Chrono discovered his minotaur adjutant … Mino-san.
“Are you going to a hospital visit again?” （fumo fumo？）
“There is nothing else to do”
Fuuhooo An adjutant threw up a big snort as he was amazed
“…… I’ll go with you” (fumoo~)
“ah, thank you”
For some reason, the adjutant seemed embarrassed and scratched his head. I accompany my aide and get off the stairs.
The hospital is a solid stone building.
The first floor is a hall with nearly one hundred beds.
The second floor is a private room.
In a separate building, making meals, doing laundry, doctors and pharmacists are stay overnight
Chrono tried to revise the evaluation about the Marquis of Erakis, that he still thought about the citizen. But not only this hospital, the city of Hachel has developed only from the first generation to the third generation.
The evaluation also falls as the generation falls from the 4th generation, especially the present. The reputation of the Marquis of the seventh generation Erakis is really bad.
It seems that he bought many luxury goods, raising taxes, stopping donation to the hospital, and doing all he want. It seems like a bad part of the feudal system has been exposed, but even such a man is higher than Chrono.
As he steps down the stairs, the noise-filled voice increases in volume. The moment when Chrono set foot in the hall, the conversation has suddenly ceased.
Is he hated? At first, is what he think, but now he got used to quite a bit. Well, this is an ordinary attitude towards noble.
In fact, his adjutant attitude is too casual towards Chrono.
“How are your feeling?”
“Hahii! t… the condition is … is bad sir!”
When Chrono calls out, Dwarf (loli girl) answer with a twitched.
“Yes … … If there is something, do not hesitate to say”
When Chrono moved to the next bed, he heard a sigh of relief by (loli) Dwarf.
I spoke to the subordinate who was in a hall and went around, all of them are in this condition.
Beastmen will also roll their tails and they seemed to be frightened.
After that, even if I moved to a separate building and asked the doctor a similar response came back.
Hachel is a city about 1 kilometer in diameter surrounded by a fort.
Originally built as a military base, it has a very complicated structure.
The city center is the Marquis of Erakis castle, its surroundings are surrounded by hospitals, commercial and industrial zones and residential areas.
Commercial industrial zones are the most crowded. The shops with branches from Cepheus Empire have their shops and stalls lined up to fill the narrow streets.
“Are you still going on?” （ぶも～？ tl: I think I will stop this sfx thing）
“I have to meet the subordinate at the inn, too”
I said that as I went from the inn where a subordinate is here to another. By the tone at which an adjutant is bothered.
“Maybe… General is unaware? ”
“Nah, I know the fact that my subordinate pay courtesies to me”
“then you knew”
fumoo~ the adjutant exaggeratedly drop his shoulder.
“…… next is the last one?”
The last one that remained was silver hair elf … Leila.
“Don’t like Leila? ”
“It’s not like that, but I guess I’m hated.”
Leila is so cold that Chrono trouble from it.
I also have tried to force responsibility on her, and it’s difficult to meet.
How about a gift?
As I looked around, the girl who sells flowers caught my eye.
it is a human girl, age is about 10 years old?
Hair is brown, skin is pathologically white.
She is not a beauty, but a wonderful and charming face.
However, a great color of fatigue is showing.
The dress is so dirty a part of a sleeve and hem is loose. you can tell that the girl is poor.
I have a pain in my chest from which I know about a child of the present-day Japan.
“Hi, will you sell flowers?”
When Chrono speaks promptly, the girl face stiff up just like his subordinates.
“i… it is one piece of copper sir”
When one copper was handed in exchange for a bouquet, a girl had a wonder-stricken expression on her face.
Um? Chrono tilting the head on one side while she turned his back on him.
After a while, he got to the lodging where Leila is staying.
To be precise, the first floor is a bar and cafeteria, and the second floor is an inn.
I attempted to arrange a little better room, but it seems that Leila seems not to like it, so I got here.
“I’ll be waiting here”
“ah, take care”
When he entered the bar and cafeteria, the eyes of the not so many customers concentrate on Chrono, but soon they turned away.
They don’t want to associate with aristocrats too much.
“Baron, today too?”
“Yes, It’s a visit. also owner”
Because he has not succeeded the family, he is not a baron, but he did not correct it, Chrono poked his elbow at the counter.
Zoom! It was impressive that the customers of both sides were separated with tremendous momentum.
The owner is in her thirties. There isn’t a child and she seems to have lost her husband five years before too. Although it should have been considerably struggling to tend a store with one woman, but she has kind eyes that do not feel such a thing.
Her frame is feeling sensual and makes them feel the color and scent of the adult woman who matured.
Slender neck and tie back hair are high points.
(tl: he used Okami here which could also mean mistress, a landlady, hostess, and female owner. This is the most annoying part since she would change with time and it still fit with the context in Japanese but not in English think of maouyuusha. For now, I’ll use Owner)
“How is the state of my subordinate?”
“Because she eating without anything left, I think you don’t need to worry.”
“Is that so?”
Chrono took out a piece of gold coins and give it to Owner.
“w what is this?”
“I want you to make Leila eat something nutritious with this. No, I didn’t mean that owner making something shabby of course … I’m counting on you”
“eh … then … well”
The Owner received gold coins with half the delight, half fearing.
Because soldier’s payment is two gold coins in one month, it’ll be the unexpected income for her.
By the way, the exchange rate of money is ten copper coins to one silver coin, twenty silver coins are one gold coin.
There is also a brass coin below the copper coin, which is the exchange rate of ten brass coins for one coin.
Climb up a wooden stairway, and Chrono goes down a dark corridor.
Leila ‘s room is the second-floor end.
Knocking the door as a courtesy, Chrono opened the door.
As it was, Chrono froze.
First of all, it was brown skin that jumped into sight.
A few scars scarcely run, The just sewed wound looks painful, but the brown skin is so fascinating that he shudder.
When Leila swiped her body with a wet cloth carefully so that may avoid a new wound, a drop of water goes through a moderate bulge from her shoulder like a creature.
Apparently, she noticed. Leila uses her arms to hide her chest.
Chrono could not take his eyes off from the bulging of her firmly breasts.
When Chrono swallows saliva, Leila bites her lips to resist her fear.
Chrono realized that she was frightened immediately, and jumped out of the room. His body is hammered into a wall on the hallway many times.
He rolled on stairs and fell.
“Baron! Do you not have any injuries?”
“It’s okay, okay.”
The Owner, who move close to running, was stopped by his hand, and Chrono stood up while confirming that there were no injuries.
He could not get passive, but it seems that there are no major injuries. It seems that the body forged for nearly three years is stronger than Chrono thinks.
“… … ouch”
“B , Baron”
“Oh, don’t worry. My bad, but will you lend me a shoulder?”
The Owner with pale face supports the Chrono while trembling.
“I want to go up again,”
The Owner was trembling so much that he did not know who support who. Anyway, he borrowed the shoulder of the Owner and reached Leila’s room again.
Chrono knocks on the door, waiting for Leila’s reply.
When entering the room, Leila kept silent and look at Chrono.
No, is she staring?
Although it was an accident, it’s a natural reaction, as she has been seen naked.
“Owner, could you get away a little?”
Chrono handed the bouquet to the Owner, looking at Leila.
The cloth that Leila just change in a hurry is still wet which make that the form of the chest can be seen.
Leila does not answer.
Chrono walked to Leila with a quick pace, pushed both knees against a dirty floor, and rubbed his head.
It is Dogeza.
“What, what are you doing!”
“This is called Dogeza, In a country where I was born, this is to show my utmost apologized ”
Chrono pleasantly explaining to a panic Leila.
“I’m sorry to see you naked!”
When Chrono rubbed his head against the ground, Leila and the owner raised up their voices.
“P .. Please, stop,”
“I will not stop Dogeza until you forgive me!”
Chrono resisted Leila who repeatedly responds and continued Dogeza.
“waaa, I understand, I will forgive you, please stop Dogeza!”
Leila’s screaming appeal made Chrono stood up silently.
Chrono received a bunch of flowers from the Owner and give it to Leila.
“It was a flower bouquet, it was awkward to come by empty hand, so I bought it on the way … … Should it be something better?”
Received a bouquet, Leila clapped her lips to bear the tears.
In ten or twenty seconds, tears fell down from the golden eyes without finally being able to endure it.
“… w, why, a half-elf like me, why?”
It is said that Leila’s ears are shorter than other elves.
It goes without saying that the half-elves are elves and a human half.
Half-elves are often discriminated against from both humans and elves in fantasy novels, and they often receive persecution. The reason is that elves are puristic, and half-elves are recognized as children born after the elves have been humiliated.
However, in the case of the Cepheus Empire, the elves belong to the ruled class, and elves also take it as facts.
If you ask directly, answers similar to fantasy novels will come back, but in reality, is it not a place where you want a presence of an inferior to themselves.
Like people in miserable circumstances are relieved of the existence of human beings in more miserable circumstances than their own.
“did you not know?”
Chrono replied Leila gave a lonely smile.
Oh, surely, this person act gently because he thinks that I was an elf.
Anyway, I am a half-elf.
Such a feeling is transmitted from that smile.
“I … … No, I think Leila is a very brave woman, even if I know you are a half-elf, this feeling will not change and I am proud that I could have a subordinate like you”
“… …. Chrono-sama”
“Leila, I will come again to see you,”
urged by the Owner, Chrono left Leila’s room.
I hear Leila’s sobbing over a door of the cheap flimsy-built house. Chrono wants to return immediately.
“You can’t, Baron”
“…… I know”
the owner took Chrono’s hand and returned to the first floor.
The attention of customers gathers, which is only a moment.
“Baron, how about a meal if you like, kiddi-“Oh, let ‘s get it””
Eh? The face of owner got distort grandly.
“No, you shouldn’t tease the poor.”
“I’m not teasing?”
A painful silence dominates the scene.
“Yes, okay, I understand! Hey, you guys over there, Because baron will have his meal here, leave this place!.”
“No, because they were sitting here before, I’ll just go to corner of the counter”
Chrono took a seat in the counter and glancing sideways even before the owner begun to chase other visitors.
“I .. It’s a vegetable soup with salt and bread”
Without much time, a bowl of boiled vegetables soup and a hard bread are placed on the counter.
Chrono uses a wooden spoon on vegetable soup.
“How is it?”
“umm, it’s salty”
Chrono soaked the hard bread in a soup to make it a little softer, then he stuffs his mouth.
he wants to add a pepper in this but that kind of spices are valuables.
after a few more spoon,
” Mumm !”
“i.. Is there something wrong!”
Chrono wipes a mouth roughly and said
“Sorry, but… I have my aide kept waiting outside, Can I also have one for him?”
“Oh? ah, the one that comes with you the day before! Please wait a moment.”
owner pour the soup from a large pan to a small pot and leaves the counter.
“Let me take it”
“Umu, it’s better for me to do labor job”
Without saying anything, Chrono took a pot from the owner and he went to his adjutant waiting outside the store.
“Sorry to keeping you waiting, I’m having a meal You should have one too, and please wait a moment.”
Chrono forced a pot on the aide who stares and resumed a meal at a counter seat.
Chrono ate all up and feeling full.
“Owner, how much will it be?”
“No, I can’t receive money from baron”
“Okay … no, This doesn’t have anything to do with that kind of thing”
Lucky ♪ he thought, but Chrono still put out a silver piece.
“haa… Baron, you are quite unusual, aren’t you?”
“Oh, I think I’m pretty ordinary myself?”
This is a little lie, Chrono thinks.
Chrono’s values are formed on the premise of freedom, equality, human rights and other concepts not existing in the Cepheus Empire.
Therefore, it is common to take actions out of a common sense of this world, it is not unusual to be called a weirdo. Even if He did not tell the Owner, Chrono knows about it.
“…… Owner … I will come again”
“Yes, I’ll be waiting for you.”
When Chrono left the store, the adjutant stood with an empty pot.
“I will return it”
“I can’t make general to do that, Owner I will leave the pot here!”
His aide opened the door and placed a pot near it.
“Come on, let’s go ahead”
“really, General is unusual ne~”
“Yeah, I was told by the owner, but what did I do, suddenly? ”
About halfway from the hospital. His aide blurts out.
“No, I was impressed. I thought the general was lying. Because I suppose we are abandoned pieces that sell our lives with just one gold coin. For such a thing. to negotiated with the princess and visited the state of the wound … Finally, I decided to believe in General.”
The aide told in a hurry and muttered momently.
“Is that what you have to appreciate so much … wait …?”
“What’s the matter? ”
“Hey, now … … did you say it was a piece of gold coin?”
“Well, what with that? ”
The soldier of the Marquis of Erakis is not a militia of the Marquis, but a soldier of the Cepheus Empire that had a history.
The salary is paid from the empire, and the monthly salary is supposed to be two gold coins for both man and demi-human.
That is … …,
“Since there is something I want to check, come with me.”
Chrono headed for the castle of Marquis of Erakis in the center of the city with a quick rush.
Without being stop by the gatekeeper, Chrono and his aides got through the gate the castle.
The Marquis of Erakis castle consists of a castle made of natural stone and four towers.
The middle castle is a three storey building close to the English country house.
Here is the department that is in charge of accounting.
Chrono opens the door and pushes forward to the accounting officer.
“aah, who do you want to meet?”
Chrono socked the accountant who half rose to his feet immediately.
The document placed on the desk collapses and the accounting officer falls from the chair uniformly.
Moreover, Chrono kicked a pit of the stomach of the accountant up silently and looked down upon him who scatters a vomit silently.
The accounting officer who sprinkled all the contents of the stomach looked up at Chrono in a clearly scared state.
“No, what kind of things”
“Hey, can you see this hand?”
Chrono showed trembling hands to the accounting personnel,
“Do you know why this hand is trembling? I am angry that this hand is trembling! I want to wring down your neck like a chicken, I’m desperately desperate to self-control! So take it out! This is treachery!”
When kicking off the scattered documents, the accounting man screamed and pulled out a bundle of paper from the desk drawer.
Received a bunch of papers that was shaken by trembling hands, Chrono read the contents.
“I told you I am angry!”
Chrono kicked off the crotch of an accountant.
“I’ll tell you so that your bird brain will understand.. if you do not want me to crush your crotch, take out another ledger!”
While pouring down the urine mixed with blood, the accounting personnel took out a bunch of paper from a locked drawer.
“I was commanded by the marquis”
“Embezzlement of public money is a death penalty”
Shortly murmuring, Chrono takes away a bundle of paper from an accountant and compares it with a bunch of paper.
A bunch of paper is books …… a double book.
Apparently, it seems that he was really embezzlement of public money.
“Bind this guy”
“Huh … … General? What on earth is going on? ”
“In short, the Marquis of Erakis has deceived your salary.”
The accounting staff was tied up by the adjutant, now appeared like a sinner waiting for the death penalty.
“What with all this noise?”
“Hi, Tyria. are you okay with the Kingdom of the Argo?”
“Do not return questions with question”
Chrono asks, Tyria folded her arm and that make her abundant chest emphasized.
“There is no problem with the people of the Holy Argo Kingdom, according to sources of information, the first throne successor was seriously injured the other day, and now it is in the midst of a factional fight due to the issue of succession rights to the throne as expected. and you?”
” I grabbed the evidence of embezzlement”
received the books from Chrono, and Tyria roughly reads.
“I am deeply impressed, Chrono”
“My reward is good for later, I want you to deal with it right away.”
Tiria laughed and went out of the room.
Tyria’s action was quick. The Marquis of Erakis and his family, who were involved in embezzlement, detained and sentenced to the Imperial City as if they were aware of embezzlement from the beginning.
Besides, I was thoroughly delegated as Tyria vice president until we decide who to succeed.
Chrono pray that the successor of Marquis Erakis is a decent man.
The next day,
Chrono looked up at the ceiling of a dirty hospital and breathed out in a dark mood.
“… got up and went to see the state of my subordinates”
descending from the bed, Chrono quickly changed into military uniform.
“Good morning, general”
“Oh, good morning”
Exiting the sickroom, Chrono gave a greetings with the adjutant.
“Generals, there is something I want to report? ”
“Is there something ?”
“Oh, that is, it is very hard to say.”
When the adjutant held back, Kurono urged.
“A little while ago, Leila said to quit the army.”
“Ku.., What does that mean?”
he could not understand the meaning of the word, and Chrono turned his voice up.
“Anything … I’m not a woman who Chrono-sama can be proud of. Is it ring any bell?”
In the words of the assistant, Chrono was shocked as if his head was beaten.
The words he told Leila yesterday was Crono’s, true heart.
If that was not true, there would be nothing to call real in Chrono’s life.
“Ah, that? Well … … Anyway, restrained her!”
“Because she is already acquiring citizenship right now,”
“That’s, I don’t care! ”
When Chrono uttered a cry which becomes like a scream, an adjutant warped the upper part of the body as he was overpowered.
“Thinking that way, I restrained her downstair.”
Chrono took his thumb and ran to Leila down the stairs.
Surrounded by lots of demi-human, Leila was standing in the center of the hall.
One worn clothes and one bag, that was all the property of Leila.
When Chrono called the name, Leila opened her eyes as if surprised.
“Why are you suddenly leaving the army?”
“Because I applied to the military to gain a citizenship, there is no meaning here if I already acquired citizenship rights.”
Leila is expressionless like Noh mask, uttered words such as a series of sounds.
“If so, why … ‘I was not a proud woman'”
“From whom, did you”
was it heard from an adjutant
Leila glared at the adjutant standing near the stairs.
“I want you to tell me the real reason, I can not be convinced if it is not so.”
“The meaning which is just as it is. I …… was born in a slum in a capital. The child born between the mother of an elf who was a prostitute and the visitor. Has been …violently repeated many times until joining the military … even after being assigned here, to the Marquis of Erakis .. Such a dirty half-elf me can not be a pride of your”
Leila smiled sadly.
Too harsh … … even its harshness can only be imagined.
as being born and raised in Japan and adopted as a adopted child in aristocracy in this world
…… Leila has given up various things in her life .
Because she is a half-elf, she is a daughter of a prostitute, she has been violently raped many times, so Leila must have convinced himself every time there is a painful thing.
So, again, Leila tried to give up. Before Chrono knew her past and became unhappy ending. Chrono could not say anything.
I have to tell her something, if I do not do it, I know I can not hold back Leila.
Chrono’s thought kept idling, Leila slowly started walking.
“… Goodbye, Chrono-sama”
Chrono was reflexively grabbing Leila’s wrist.
“Let me get away, release!”
Even if Leila cried out, Chrono did not let go of it.
“I was delighted with the words you said, but it makes me feel miserable when I am with you. Both born and raised are too different. What do you know of me! It is just painful even if it is gentle!”
” … …. a”
It was unilaterally rolled up by Leila, and Chrono muttered a little.
“… … a world human rights declaration ”
Chrono felt in the middle of a panic, desperately recalled what he taught at a junior high school.
“Well, all human beings were born freely … Is it equal on dignity and rights?”
“I have never heard of WORLD HUMAN RIGHT DECLARATION” (tl: said in reading sound)
Leila murmured as it was perplexing, and Chrono fell a panic this time.
“You may not believe it, but I came from a different world.”
“Are you telling a lie?”
“That’s not it! I really came from another world! In the original world, Aristocrats, commoners, etc. There is not such a thing, I grew up being taught by that kind of things, such as discrimination no matter whom the opponent is, so I can not do it, so …. ”
Chrono I desperately spent the words, but at the same time I learned a tremendous helplessness.
It is too absurd to say that I came from another world.
I can not believe myself if I have not seen such a thing.
It can not be helped even if it is thought that it is made foolish.
“Why, for me, to spit out to such a lie”
“Well, you don’t have to believe that I came from another world, but there is no lie in my desire to keep you here”
Leila looked at Chrono with her eyes that were wet with tears.
“Is it okay for me to stay …?”
“Stay here” Chrono quietly nodded.
“I was a half elf and a daughter of a prostitute, I was raped again and again … Still”
” It is not your responsibility that you are a half elf, a daughter of a prostitute you were born, You are a victim because your value and life are decided … You are a victim … Oh, sorry, I can not say it well ”
Tears go down Leila’s cheeks.
“… Chrono-sama, please give me a little time to organize my feelings a bit, one night to think over then I want to answer the feelings of Chrono-sama”
Leila who flashes her cheeks with indescribable things While feeling, Chrono breathed a sigh of relief that he had detained his men.
That night, the room at Marquis Erakis Castle … … Chrono lay on the bed and was spending time indefinitely.
“…. One night, I thought I was relieved earlier but it was not decided that she would remain in the army, but if Leira thought and gave an answer, I would respect it.”
Chrono murmured to himself, the door was knocked.
Who in this time? And when he opened the door while tilting his neck, Leila was standing with downward shoulders.
“… Oh, that’s Chrono-sama”
“What’s wrong , at this time?” Chrono asked, Leila shrugged her shoulders as if frighten of something.
“Did you possibly sneak in?”
Gog Gog and the footsteps echoed.
Unfortunately Tyria’s vassals are not as indiscriminate as Chrono.
If they know that Leila, a soldier, is creeping into the marquis, they should restrain her and ask questions.
Leila entered the room, and Chrono closed the door behind.
“I told you to think over time overnight.”
“Yes, I … I’ve thought of myself from that one.”
Leila jumped into Chrono’s chest as she had made up her mind.
“I, I and I! I also love Chrono-sama, I think I love you!”
Chrono was reflexively listening.
How is it going to develop like this?
“Were you annoying this time?”
“No, no, at all”
How can I solve the misunderstanding? And Chrono separated from Leila and sat down on the bed.
“Oh , Chrono-sama?”
“Oh, yeah, sit properly …!!”
It got more entangled! And Chrono stared at Leila who sat on the bed.
Leila seems uneasy about Chrono.
What an unfair girl! With such a face that about to cry and let your ears drop like a puppy!
How long have they been sitting in bed.
Suddenly the shoulder touched, Chrono moved his eyes.
There, there was a golden eyes that was wet.
Leila pushes her small breast.
As fascinated by golden eyes, Chrono could not move.
“er, Chrono-sama … I don’t care if I’m just one of your mistresses, please let me be with you, my love is … only for you”
… That was the killing blow.
Chrono greedy stealing Leila’s lips.
Ah, I forgot. This novel could almost use a Tragedy tag. Most of his girls have a really heavy background like this one (This is about level 4 out of 5 if I have to rank them). If you read this one and could not stomach it. I advise you stop reading while you still can. I think these points add to realistic tho. They’re at war and a human supremacy society.
This guy is one of the most polite MC I know. He uses mostly boku, and rarely watashi.
also, This is an image from chapter 1.
Kurono and Mino-san
now imagine he said those mooo mooo line.
