I Said Make My Abilities Average! -
Chapter 71: New Battle
Baron Boodoman’ side have 13 soldiers (of which four were slightly injured, others dropped out due to injuries) versus 12 people on Pauline’ side.
Pauline, Rena, Teresa are not include in the number. The Earl insists to settle this with swords.
Royal Knight Captain Santos was firmly included in the warfare by his own wish.
At first glance it looks almost equal. No, it is certainly equal. The number of “People” is.
However, the strength difference was out of the question.
One side are military soldiers of a low rank noble.
Other side are 6 escort knights,
the military commander the Earl himself
and 2 of his sons that were strongest knight in their land,
the Royal Knight Captain,
(T.N: Average) C rank hunter Mile and Maevis.
It was just bullying.
And ... It ended in a moment.
The Earl beat two soldiers at once (TN: he must quite angry), everyone else beat one soldier.
Everyone had sufficient ability power, so they didn’t kill the soldiers, only knocked them down to give less serious injury.
In order to do it, a certain level of ability difference is necessary. Just like Maevis talking with Rena before, when we are much more stronger than the enemies, we don’t need to kill them.
“... Well, then I will have you accompany us, Baron-dono” (Captain Santos)
“What, ... I have no obligation to obey such thing!” (Baron)
Daunted by Captain Santos sudden speak, Baron Boodoman hurriedly denied.
“If it had been a while ago, it certainly was.
『Red O』... *cough*, 『Red blood is justice』’s members are individual actions that were not instructed by anyone else.
And the king only want me to investigate the testimony of the rogues we captured in the capital that was concerned about that merchant.
We have no suspicions or testimony against Baron Boodoman-dono.
We only came to calm the trouble in the territory and just tried to seize the guilty parties” (Captain Santos)
“Hmm, you are truly a captain knight of the royal palace, you understand well!” (Baron)
However, Santos’ words continued.
“That was before you attack us.
But right now, you are a rebel who ordered your subordinates to kill the Earl, the Kingdom capital’ Guild Master’ Agent and the Captain who received the delegation of His Majesty the King.
That is a serious crime. No matter how noble you are, you can not avoid felony charges.” (Captain Santos)
“What ...” (Baron)
“Well, Do you really think you can get away after trying to kill us.
Earl-dono, If you please.”
Nodded at the request of Santos, Earl Austin ordered his subordinates to capture Baron Boodoman who is trembling with a pale blue face. The Baron is silently tied up without resistance.
“Let’s search the baron’s house and secure evidence properties. You also have to confirm whether the Baron’s family and relatives, aides, etc. are guilty like him” (Earl)
“Yes, that’s right” (Captain Santos)
Santos affirms the word of Earl Austin.
The result of this confirmation will be the judgment whether the Boodoman Baroness, children and relatives will be crushed or not.
Also, even if the heirs were decent, if the aides and the like were corrupted, it was still necessary to replace the upper part themselves.
Along with the elimination of many adhesions merchants.
The Earl who tried to head to Boodoman’s house with Santos, the two sons and the subordinate, looked back and talked to Maevis.
“The carriage of the captive squad from the Kingdom’ capital will arrive in two days. We will deliver the sinners.
And maevis, you will be going back to home on the third morning.
Until then, enjoy the last moment with your friends.” (Earl)
“Huh ...” (Maevis)
Maevis doesn’t understand what her father said and has a confusing face.
“The store will return to the hands of the daughter’s family.
From now on, the three mother, son and daughter will have to defend the shop together by theirself. It is the important shop left by the father after all.
The play “Great Adventure of the Brave Maevis” will be over with this.
And Maevis, if you want I will arrange a worthy marry partner for you.” (Earl)
“SUCH A THING IS NOT NECESSARY!” (Maevis, Yuan, 1st Brother)
Mevis, Yuan, and the eldest brother’s voice overlapped.
“We will never need to prepare a marry partner for Maevis!” (Yuan)
“That’s right! Maevis will stay at home with us forever ...” (1st Brother)
“No, that’s kinda ...” (Maevis)
The three brothers and sister denied the words of the Earl together. But Meavis also didn’t want to live the rest of her life at home, so she declined her brothers’s words for the time being.
“Anyway, I don’t want to see you to face dangerous thing like this again, I will forgive you playing time outside so far.
If you want to do the knight’s mimicry, I will let you do that at the mansion.
When you become a noble wife, you will need minimum ability to protect yourself and your children” (Earl)
After the Earl said that, he accompanied his son and his subordinate and left.
After the Earl’s departure, the girls returned to the inn.
Yuan and Teresa are heading to the baron’s house with the Earl.
And in the room of the inn, the girls are just silence.
“...” (Maevis + Mile + Rena + Pauline)
Maevis will soon left the party and go back to her house and live her life there as a noble’ daughter. It was not a story that others could not speak lightly.
Eventually Mile can’t stand the silence and asking Maevis.
“Maevis, what are you going to do?” (Mile)
“We have barely done anything yet! To think I need to give up everything like this. I’m quite frustrated“ (Maevis)
Maevis answer half crying.
Pauline already solved her family’s problem. And it was supposed to be happy event. But this situation is also caused by it make everyone silent depressed.
And for Rena, she feels depressed as she thinks.
“After losing Pauline and Maevis, 『Red Oath』party will be disbanded.
Even if we gather new members together with Mile. They won’t be a a companion who has worked hard in training, a companion who binds with a soul and pledges eternity friendship together.
Then, we can’t name the party 『Red Oath』anymore. we had to change the name and start again as a new party.
Besides that, Mile may not come with me. Because of the synchronized, they are a party with four people in the same room.
In the first place, can Mile let the new member know about her ability and can we be sure they will not be tempted?
Also, With Mile’s ability, she will be invited to many higher party.
No, it won’t happen, Mile already refused 『Mithril Roar』. Beside Mile has always been held back ...
Even Maevis has always been with them, in the end she was a noble daughter, she have 『Obligations as a person born of aristocratic family』 to fulfill.” (Rena’s inner thought)
Rena thought so, she couldn’t say anything to Maevis.
And the girls become silence again ...
“Well, let’s drive back Maevis’s family!” (Mile)
“...Hah?” (Rena + Maevis + Pauline)
Maevis, Rena and Pauline are instantly reacted to Mile’s words.
“Well? Don’t you think it will be bad if Maevis cames back to her parent’s house and wasn’t allowed to leave anymore?
Then, for those who think that it is better for Maevis to remain in the “『Red Oath』, please raise your hand!“ (Mile)
Four girls, including Mile, raise their hands.
Four girls look back on each other’s face.
“But, how could we do it! Chichiue will not listen ...” (Maevis)
Mile answered it with a smile.
“He he. There is such a saying in my country 『Knowing you and knowing your enemy, hundred battles, hundred wins』“ (Mile)
It was a saying that they listen for the first time, but the girls are hunters that have a lot of battles. They could understand what the word says.
“We know a lot about Maevis and about her family ...” (Mile)
“Ah...” (Rena + Pauline)
Rena and Pauline at the point, realized what Mile want to say.
Only Meypt is just blind to it, she doesn’t understand the meaning.
Over half a year, Maevis seemed to have no consciousness of how much she talked about her family.
And the three girls: Mile, Rena, Pauline knew every details about Maevis’s family. It is probably the best in this world except Maevis and her family.
“Chichiue, will you have a sword battle with my shishou, the strongest swordsman?” (Maevis)
The next day, Maevis come to ask the Earl, who already prepares to bring Maevis back when the carriage arrived. The Earl was surprised and made his eyes black and white.
“What, are you saying?” (Earl)
“What am I saying is... Chichiue will lose against shishou.” (Maevis)
Before getting angry, the Earl is surprised that the can’t utter any words.
The two older brothers and the six escort knights were also surprised.
Earl of Austin is famous for being strong as the head of a fighting faction.
He is an opponent that even we count the whole Kingdom, there’s barely anyone who can win against him.
The Earl awoke from the surprise, thought that Maevis was just saying non-sense, and smiled in his mind that he had a good reason to bring back Maevis.
If he can show that her master is weaker than him, and Maevis will not get strong with a master like that, he can completely stop the objections.
Even he was forceful to bring Maevis back like yesterday. But the truth that only his sons know is he also doesn’t want to be disliked or grudged by Maevis. Right now he has a chance to persuade Meavis. He will absolutely use this chance to take her back.
“Haha, that is a great teacher. If your teacher is really that strong, I also would like to have a fight with him
If that person is really stronger than me, and if you can prove that you can keep up with the teaching, you can take follow your master guidance.
However, if you can’t do that, then you will go back home with me” (Earl)
If Chichiue lost to shishou and if I can win eldest Ani-sama, I will not return home, and you will let me do as I like!
All of people here will be witnesses!” (Maevis)
“Huh...?” (Earl, 2 siscons, 6 knights)
When Maevis replies with a full smile, the Earl, the two brothers and the knights are also lost their words.
The Earl are planning to convenient use this to bring Maevis back but Maevis is one step ahead.
“Then, in that case, invite him to our house ...” (Earl)
For a nobleman, he must take safety measures to avoid danger no matter how low the possibilities is.
“No, we can not afford to tie shishou at our house.
In that case, it would be natural for me to follow shishou
Or Chichiue don’t have the confidence to win?” (Maevis)
“...Fine by me! When are you going to start?”
“... Tomorow evening, after finishing the hand over of the decimals and merchants. We will have a fight at the stadium in this town”
“Your master is also coming with you right?
... Well good, fine by me.
Well, tomorrow evening.
You should enjoy the last night with your friends.” (Earl)
The Earl caught up with the Maevis’s provocation, and dared to forsake the safety measures, but the Earl wasn’t stupid to that extent.
He do not know who the opponent is, but there’s little possibility that he will lose to an unknown person who might be a high ranked hunter like rank A or S.
But there was no possibility that Maevis could beat the eldest son.
Even if there’s a miracle in this world, it will not happen twice in a row.
The Earl thought so.
“Mile, was it really good?” (Maevis)
At the same time as the Earls gone away, Maevis lose confidence that she had before, and she feels un-easy.
“The rest is up to Maevis, so let’s go!” (Mile)
And Mile headed to the stadium in this town.
There is always a stadium in a town to a certain extent.
It is nothing compared to what is in the royal city, just a spectator seat was set up on a simple ground, but it is an indispensable facility for people with little entertainment.
Then, special training was started.
“If you were thinking that you needed a special lesson to acquire that extraordinary technique, then you were wrong, once again!” (Mile) (違います！ そこは、にやりと嗤って、『この私が、あの程度の必殺技を身に付けるために特訓を必要としたとでも思っていたのですか？』、です！ はい、もう一度！)
“...” (Rena + Pauline)
