CCM 36 – Yo, They were Supposed to be Strong, huh


The Saviors’ of Arceus.

Inside their hideout.

.

I, along with the adventurers that rushed to our aid, are currently exploring the place.

Of which, we have found something unexpected.

.

[Ah…!]

[Heelp…! Please help us…!!!]

.

There’s a room that looks like a prison and numerous people are confined inside.

We’re not talking about a few people here.

I can tell in a glance that there are around thirty people that are being held captive in this room alone.

.

[Thank you…! Thank you so much…!]

[Mama… Can we go home now…?]

[Un…! They are our saviors, thank you very much…!]

[Onii-chan, thank you…]

.

I already lost count now of how many times they bowed.

Their gratefulness will overwhelm me at this rate though.

.

I’m sure they’ve had a pretty horrible experience themselves. Even with Maeri, if I had been later than a little bit, something unimaginable had already happened.

.

…This room isn’t the only thing that is dangerous.

.

The walls, ceiling, and in every direction, there are banners with slogans that claim for the prosperity of the kingdom. 

.

Also, there’s the photo of their organization’s leader everywhere. ‘For the leader’, ‘for you, leader’, or something whatever… In short, it seems like the head of the organization is glorified by everyone under him.

.

…It is unfortunate but the person in question isn’t in this place.

Perhaps the leader is in some other branch.

.

By the way, there were no other members in this place except for the three that I fought earlier. Seems like this is just one of their many small hideouts.

.

[This is amazing, eh~…]

.

One of the adventurers who came to assist us mutters.

.

[Saviors’ of Arceus… I’ve always thought these guys are dangerous but not to this extent.]

[Yes… I have to agree.]

.

The purpose of their organization remains to be unknown. The three members that I captured were sent earlier to the capital where a thorough interrogation will be made at a later date.

.

Further, we have found documents that cannot be ignored. 

.

The documents pertain to the events that happened in this village. Disappearances… and deaths.

Chances are that most of these are due to this organization’s handiwork.

.

Yuya-san told me before that discovering this hideout or other similar places tend to become big achievements and now that I think about it, it’s probably true.

.

[But on top of it all… You’re astounding, aint ya.]

.

A senior adventurer whispers as he takes a look all around the place.

.

[The Saviors’ of Arceus is a pretty hard opponent to crack. We’ve got some leads from them before but weren’t able to successfully trace them back…. And then here you are sniffing out their location like a walk in the park.]

[Haha… I still have lots of ways to go.The members defending this place aren’t that strong anyway.]

[Hm? They aren’t strong?]

[Yes. I was able to tidy them up all by myself after all.]

[……….]

.

The senior adventurer then stops talking and closes his mouth.

I wonder what happened to him.

.

[ah, uhm. Is something the matter?]

[You see. I already said this earlier but they aren’t easy opponents. Even with veteran adventurers, only quite a few of them would have fought them without struggle.]

[Eh….]

.

Se-seiously?

.

[And… You said you beat them by yourself?]

[Y-yes… Well, maybe I was just lucky….]

[Oh, before I forgot, how were you able to pinpoint the location of this hideout and bypass the magically enhanced entranced?]

[Th-that might be due to luck as well, I guess…]

[….]

.

The adventurer then face palms before speaking again after a few seconds.

.

[Arios. Why don’t you enter our party. We will do our utmost to have you.]

[No no no no. That’s…]

.

I just arrived in Rastal village yesterday, you see. I can’t just leave and join someone else immediately. 

.

[I’ll ask just in case but you’re Arios Makuba, right? Leon Makuba’s son?]

[Yes. That’s certainly me…]

[I-I see. Contrary to rumors, you seem to be quite promising.]

[Oh… Thank you so much.]

[Geez. Enough with the formalities.]

.

The adventurer flashes me a friendly grin as he taps my shoulder repeatedly.

.

[In any rate, this trip is quite the success. I personally want to give you my thanks.]
