CCM 64 – Yo, This Goes Way Beyond of What I Expected Tho


.

[*snores*… *snores*..]

.

And there goes Em sleeping like a log on top of the bed after the dinner which she thoroughly enjoyed until her heart’s content.

.

What’s more,

.

[…Bed… so fluffy… *giggles* hihihi…]

.

Or so she says.

.

She told us as well that the slaves in Ald’s estate sleep in stables on top of straws and that’s what she’s been using all her life. That’s probably why even though she’s sleeping, she keeps on flashing that fully satisfied smile. Well, let’s leave her to her dreams and have her enjoy the rest of the night.

.

Still — tomorrow would prove to be troublesome.

.

I remain sitting on the table with Rei in front as we discuss how we should move forward considering the situation.

.

Maeri on the other hand washes the dishes back in the kitchen.

.

[Uuun… This will be problematic indeed.  Leifa-nii-sama handles these kinds of matters but that brother of mine, when it comes to policies regarding slavery, is a bit….]

.

I let out a sigh seeing how frustrated Reimira is.

.

[It’s no good after all… Still, I want to do something about that young girl.]

[I’ll ask my brother as well. Perhaps his mind will waver even so slightly after I tell him Em-chan’s story.]

[I’m sorry to have you all do this. But I’ll leave it to you.]

.

Taking care of Em just temporarily notwithstanding, completely hiding her and her identity as a slave despite being someone else’s property is of another kind of problem as it may result in a criminal offense.

.

To prevent that from happening, we have to get Rei moving hurriedly. No matter how much we try to hide Em and her identity, we can’t ever be more prudent and avoid as many risks as necessary.

.

[uuuhhh… aaaaaahh…]

.

Then, Em’s screams resounded inside the room all of a sudden.

.

[E-euphias-sama… Forgive us, please… Do-don’t take any of their lives… I beg of you, P-please….]

[…………]

.

Just what kind of dream this young girl is seeing. 

I don’t really wanna even imagine it but it just shows of how much this girl had just been tormented.

.

Seeing what this girl has been going through first hand reignites my determination to not allow her sufferings to continue any further….

.

And suddenly.

.

[…………..]

.

My gaze sharpens as I turn around my head.

.

This presence…

A rather familiar malice…

.

Don’t tell me.

.

[W-what’s the matter, Arios?]

.

Rei then asks after sensing my abrupt change which I raise my index finger on top of my lips to tell her to lower her voice down in response. 

.

[…There… I can feel people’s presence… Don’t panic and please just stay inside for me, Rei.]

[People, you say… Don’t tell me we already have a spies of Ald family in our tails…]

[I don’t know. But it’s better to be careful. Don’t hesitate to head towards the guild if anything happens.]

[U-un… You too, Arios. Be careful…]

.

Rei’s face then shows signs of fear as she holds my hand. I can’t help but smile at her just to reassure her in response.

.

I move my feet right then immediately and head outside the house to look for the presence that I felt.

.

[….]

.

Seems like that these guys have commendable detecting skills too.

I tried to move as fast yet subtle as I can but it seemed like that they noticed it regardless and immediately ran away.

.

–This detection prowess and immediate response… It shouldn’t be possible for just mere spies.

.

Seriously, it seems like I have to keep my guard firmer and stronger next time.

.

But, no matter how elusive these opponent may be, they will not be able to deceive the Sword of Origin.

I completely erased my presence as if I don’t exist as I start to chase behind the back of the people who’ve just recently been lurking. 

.

I utilize the shadows and hide myself completely to keep them unaware of me lingering in their surroundings.

.

Just a bit more.

Just a little distance and I’ll finally be able to see their figures…!

.

But then, a few seconds later, after seeing who are the people who uninvitedly look around at our place, I almost let out a scream.

.

-Gray robes that cover their bodies from head to toe. Clothing that I will never fail to remember.

No matter what.

.

It’s them — the Saviors of Arceus.

.

But why?

Did they come to take revenge against me?

Isn’t this a little bit too late already… Why choose now of all those times…

.

[How’s it…? Is that bastard Arios pursuing us?]

[Nah. I can’t feel his presence ain’t anywhere near us. I highly doubt he can catch up considering how fast we were.]

[…That’s true. Well, let’s head back and report what we got.]

.

The figures continue to happily converse as they move.

.

I can completely hear what they’re saying but I have to let it go for now before I scare these goofs.

.

These guys, afterall, have somewhere to ‘head back’ to. 

If I just keep on chasing these guys this way until the end then perhaps I’ll find another hideout that they have hidden. Yep, yep. Let’s be patient and thoroughly pummel them at that moment.

.

Quite dozens of minutes have already passed since I’ve been tailing these guys.

I was torn whether to keep it up or just strike them down many times on their way back but the place where they stopped left me completely stunned.

.

Because, the very place these guys have arrived and entered, is the estate of that infamous Ald family.


Translator’s Notes:

  1. Release 2/5 (?)
  2. Y’know, the topic of slavery actually made me look up how it really worked out in history. I gotta say, my faith in humanity got shaken a bit slightly. Uwu. Though, history in itself is interesting though.

  1. Well that is convenient. He can take down both a cell of the Saviors of Arceus, AND he can take down the Ald family and save Em in the process.

  2. A certain portion of humanity has always pursued way of profit at no cost to themselves. That’s where it began, and why it still exists in some places. In others, it simply shifted to squables over minimum wage law.

    There are a few more complicated topics, such as debt slavery, which have to be considered separately, becuase the mechanics wee vastly different, but in any case, it happened.
