CCM03 – Yo, the Princess-sama is Coming Along Though


Absurd.

.

This is a fraud.

.

This is completely a scam.

.

I was able to use magic that I have never ever known before and defeated a black grizzly.

.

I don’t know anymore.

It really is a cheat as its name says.

.

What else am I supposed to say to a skill that allows me to use magic without putting any kind of effort?

.

[…….]

.

A rather ambiguous failskill, ‘Cheat Code’.

I am quite sure that this is the reason I was able to use magic.

.

Thinking about it, even I don’t have any idea about my own skill at all. I got so shocked earlier when I didn’t get the skill ‘Sword Saint’ that I did not even think of giving myself enough time to consider what ‘Cheat Code’ is. I just assumed that it doesn’t do anything apart from increasing one’s offensive abilities.

.

Rather, things don’t really add up if I analyze it carefully.

.

If the skill just really raises one’s offensive ability then it would make more sense if it is named as Attack Powers Up. Where in the world would someone know what ‘Cheat Code’ means in the first place.1

.

Just what is this skill about, really….

.

Rather, this isn’t the right time to think about such things.

Knowing more of my skill is necessary but what’s more important right now is to confirm the princess’ safety.

.

[Well… It has been a while, your highness Princess Reimira.]

[A-Arios…]

.

As one can expect from a princess, there is nothing anyone can say about Reimira’s dignified appearance. That is still the case even now that she has fallen on her butt and is staring dumbfounded at me. Let’s just say that she doesn’t look that embarrassing at the moment but I’m not really sure if I can still proudly say the dignified part. 

.

[….Mou.]

.

Princess Reimira might have now noticed her appearance as she pouts her cheeks.

.

[Call me Rei when we’re alone. Also, I have forbidden you to talk formally with me… I’ve told you that already, didn’t I?]

[Indeed. You certainly said something like that, didn’t you, your highness.]

[….Arios?]

.

Don’t give me that chilling smile while looking straight into my eyes.

You are still on your butt you know.

.

[Okay, I got it. I’ll refrain from speaking formally.]

[…If you really now understand then good.]

.

Princess Reimira– Rather, Rei now finally stands up looking satisfied.

.

She’s still the same as ever.

After all these years until now, she is still the same princess that I know.

.

The house of Makuba has been serving the royal family from generations to generations that’s why the Sword Saint’s family is close with the royalties. As a candidate of the prestigious title of sword saint in the past, I was taken before by my father to greet the royal family. 

.

That is where I met the second princess of the kingdom — Reimira Li Arceus. 

.

Perhaps due to our ages being close with one another, we’ve come to talk to each other naturally. Childish talks like ‘let’s marry each other once we grow up’ comes up from time to time casually as well.

.

She is a part of the royal family but she is as real and honest a person can be.

Rather, character wise, her vibe is closer to that of a commoner.

.

After all, she tends to wear cheap clothes and sneak outside the castle to play.

.

She’s probably doing the same thing right now sneaking out for whatever reason. Just looking at Rei’s current appearance, no one will be able to identify her as part of the royal family. Unless her hat is removed and a person takes a very thorough look, one won’t realize she is the second princess of this country.

.

Really, she hasn’t even changed a bit since that time.

.

–However.

.

[…Rei. This might be a good chance. There’s something I need to tell you.]

[Eh…?]

[You already heard of it, right? I am not a sword saint. For me to be with you and serve by your side… It’s quite unfortunate but it appears it would be really difficult for it to happen.]

.

–That’s why this is where we should part ways.

Now that I left the Makuba estate, there’s no way I’ll get in touch with the royal family anymore. Perhaps this is the last time where me and Rei can meet each other.

.

Rei hasn’t changed even a bit since then.

.

But it’s not the case with me. The potential I once held with the sword is gone already.

.

However.

The words that came out from Rei’s mouth are quite outside of my expectations.

.

[…Un, I’ve heard of it. They’re quite unforgiving, aren’t they? To kick you out of the house due to lack of talent, perhaps, this country as a whole is the problem.]

[Ha…?]

[That’s why I am going out on a journey! I am worried of Arios, that’s why look!!]

.

Rei switches the position of her backpack as she speaks and opens it to show its contents to me.

Somehow — the sparkle and dazzle is telling me even if I can’t see clearly that what’s inside are bunch and array of golden coins.

.

[Hey, This is…]

[With this much, we will be okay even in case of emergency! Now, now, let’s go and find a good city somewhere!]

.

No no no no no.

This smells like trouble, no?

You’d really ditch the castle just for me?

.

If I mess this up one bit I might end up getting a capital offense for abducting a member of the royal family. 

.

Perhaps seeing through my dilemma, Rei puffs her big chest and says

.

[It will be fine! I properly left a letter before I left after all!]

[No no no no…]

.

That’s probably not barely enough to solve all of these questionable things though.

.

[More importantly, why me. I couldn’t be anymore unreliable right now, you know? For you to choose to go with me…]

[Why you, you ask…]

.

Rei then stares at me blankly before her eyes start to move in circles.

Her face then reddens as she grabs my arm with both of her hands.

.

[Who cares! I want it this way! Do you have any problem with that?]

[……..Seriously, just what’s wrong with you.]

.

Really, you are still the same as ever.

Clumsy, pushy, but is more honest and straightforward than anyone I know.

.

[Got it. But… Just a little bit, okay? It’ll be quite a headache if we get involved in some kind of trouble.]

[Un!]

.

Rei’s smile then blooms beautifully.


Translator’s Notes:

  1. The world build up is in medival period where ‘codes’ don’t even exist.
  2. I’ve checked and there’s no apparent update in Krull scans after 3 months so I am updating this series until then.
  3. Happy new year!

  1. Thanks for the translations! Yeah they stopped updating for some reason, pretty glad you picked this up

  2. Same. It sucks that they stopped but I’m glad you took it up. I would’ve liked to help but unfortunately I know nothing about translating. So, thanks so much for the hard work!
