CCM 37 – Yo, Why the Heck did You Went Along


A few hours has passed since we secured the hideout.

.

We roughly search through the inside of the hideout and take back the things that caught our eyes with us above ground. Still, the hideout will be under surveillance as a thorough investigation will be made in it on a later date.

.

Well, the Saviors’ of Arceus is considered a threat even on a country sized scale after all. So the further investigations will be made including the army of the royal family.

.

That’s why for now, we choose to head back to Rastal village. I was invited quite a few times by the senior adventurer to join his party but I chose to decline.

.

By the way, Yujes had been raising a ruckus since earlier for his achievement of wiping out the white wolves but no one gives him even a glance.

.

That guy’s contribution is certainly commendable.

However, it isn’t as eye catching as discovering a hideout of the organization Saviors’ of Arceus. Still, Yujes’ continuous whining was really pretty annoying.

.

But then.

.

[…You’ve really come along this far, huh… Maeri.]

[O-ofcourse!!]

.

The carriage sways along where the girl who was once a maid in the estate of the Makubas – Maeri, folds her arms together.

.

[I finally got to see Arios-sama so there’s no reason for me to return to the royal capital! Please let me stay and serve by your side, Arios-sama!]

[No… Even if you say so…]

.

I can’t help but scratch the back of my head.

.

Oh, I forgot to mention but the captives we found in the hideout earlier were sent back by the adventurers to their own homes.

However, Maeri has already abandoned the Makuba family and has no other place to go.

.

That’s why she said–

.

[Please take me along, Arios-sama!]

.

And that’s what brought up this situation…

.

[Maeri…Unlike my father, I don’t really have the financial resources right now. I can’t afford to pay you, you know?]

[Eh? What are you talking about? I am not asking for payment though?]

[Ha?]

.

No no no no.

Just what the heck are you saying.

.

[I have now realized. The days where I serve Arios-sama are the happiest days of my life. On the other hand, even though I earn money by serving the family, Dudley-sama… No, Dudley, is someone I don’t want to work for.]

[Oh. I guess I can agree with that.]

.

Rei who sits beside Maeri with her face filled with contempt agrees towards Maeri.

.

[For Dudley to serve as my escort… No, I won’t accept that. Never, ever. That’s why I can relate to what you are feeling right now.]

[Reimira-sama…]

[Arios. Let’s allow her to live with us, please? Don’t you feel bad for her…]

[Feel bad for her, you say…]

.

Can we call this arrangement a proper response for feeling bad for her? She will be working without payment, you know?

.

Still, Maeri’s puppey eyes that are looking at me cutely is something I cannot decline. Haaa. I heave out a sigh as I start to nod.

.

[…Fine. Let’s stick together until whenever you want.]

[Yatta!!!]

.

Maeri then closes her fist and strikes a victory pose in happiness.

.

Though, umu, she has quite the figure that is similar to Rei.

Now that I think about how I am going to live together now with such a girl as Maeri… I can’t help but think just how hard it will be on it’s own. Not to mention, Rei is still with us too.

.

[Oh… Right]

.

Maeri then stands up as she recalls something and moves in front of me before kneeling down to her knees.

.

[Once again… Arios Makuba-sama. I am truly grateful for you saving me. I, Maeri Robalt, dedicate myself to serve you as my master to the best of my abilities. Please take care of me from here onwards.]

[Yeah… I got you.]

.

I’m not really that good with such a stiff atmosphere so I can’t help but mutter my response while scratching my cheek.

.

[Please take care of me from now on as well, Maeri.]

[Hai!!]

.

For me, Maeri who shows me such an infectious smile in response can’t be inferior than any heavenly beauty.
