CCM 086 – Yo, Just Accept the Truth Already


–It finally ended.

I return my sword back to it’s sheathe feeling reconciled after all that had happened.

.

Two members of SoA.

And Leon Makuba, the former sword saint.

.

The enemies we just fought are now lying on the ground without moving an inch.

Well, we came to this estate to suppress the terrorists and their accomplices so there’s no reason for us to kill them. However, we made sure their legs are injured pretty badly so when they wake up, they will not be able to escape without us noticing.

.

With this, the mission is now almost completed.

.

That just leaves — 

.

[Hyiiiii…!!!!!!!!!!!!]

.

Yeah, the only one remaining is the big guy who’s just been glaring at me all this while that now had fallen from his seat.

.

[Y-y-y-you better stop this insolence right this instant! J-j-just who do you think I am!!???]

.

Oh, I guess he’ll still be talking big until the end.

As expected of a high noble.

.

[J-just what are those bastards from SoA doing all this while….!! COmE over HeerreEE!! Protect mee..!!!]

[—Well, sorry to break the news to you but almost all members of SoA in this estate are already wiped out.]

.

The response Euphias got was from a newcomer who suddenly entered the room.

I look at the familiar figure walking brazenly across the floor – to Reimira Li Arceus.

.

Perhaps she intended to reveal her identity at this moment.

Right now, she is talking while not wearing the large hat she often uses to hide her face. 

.

[W-w-w-w-w-what the…!!!]

.

And seeing the princess arriving at the scene where no evidence can be concealed, Euphias’ face paled so white he almost seemed dying.

.

[P-p-princess Reimira!! H-how can you be in such a place like this…!]

[Oh gosh, there’s no need for you to know that.]

.

I just noticed but Kaya, Yuuya, and even Viin arrived besides Reimira.

.

Seems everyone is fine.

Especially Viin. I haven’t seen it in this form before. It’s probably the new battle mode it told me about. I have to say it looks pretty strong just by its appearance.

.

[We’ve already detained all the members of SoA that had been stationed inside the mansion. Euphias Ald, there’s no more else in this place that would stand up to protect you.]

[aaaa—…! ahh!!!!]

.

Euphias despairs in the reality of the situation while Rei moves closer to me and whispers into my ears.

.

[Arios, how’s Em’s slave crest…?]

[Yeah, that. No worries. It was undone.]

.

The lady surely leaves no blindspot.

I have to say I’m impressed she actually keeps that in mind.

.

The slave crest disappears once the ‘Contract’ is rescinded by the master of the master-servant relationship.

Em already received Euphias’ affirmation earlier so her crest will vanish sooner than later. 

.

Well, if we actually imprisoned Euphias without releasing their slave contract, Em might as well be put in danger as the prisoner’s property and that would just be too pitiful. It was a good thing that Rei even watched out for that.

.

[That’s good… Thank you, Arios.]

[Hmmn. I’m just glad that you’re able to make it back safe.]

.

Our brief conversation ended in that note and Rei turns her attention to Euphias once again.

.

This kind of situation really suits this girl the best, I think. 

.

[…So, Euphias-san?]

[H-hyiii..! Ooo- oo- oh what could it be…!?]

.

Rei’s intimidation – her stare alone was enough for Euphias to be so fearful he looked like he already forfeited the last of his dignity.

.

[…Haaa…]

.

She’s quite amazing, isn’t she?

Even Em looks surprised seeing her previous master’s appearance and could only sigh at the scene.

.

[Stop being pathetic already and start to speak. We already know that you allied yourself to SoA to lay your hands on a lot of women. So there’s no need for that. But the SoA must have some kind of bargain for them to accept such an alliance. Speak, what the SoA is after for colluding with a kingdom’s noble.]

[I – I have no idea!]

[…Let me change the question then. You… why would Leafa-nii-sama let SoA have an alliance with you?]

[Ha…?]

.

It was me who actually let out that dumbfounded voice in surprise.

.

The Crown Prince Leafa.

Why would that scheming prince’s name suddenly get involved in this talk….?

.

[W-w-w-what are you saying… I- i – I don’t understand what you’re talking about…]

[…Really?]

[Hi-hiiii!! O-o-o-oofcourse!!]

.

Euphias desperately denies Rei’s words but his body language tells it all. 

.

No matter how big of a noble he is, it is clear for everyone that he is completely shaken.

.

Then.

.

[—There!!]

.

My instincts suddenly kick in and I obey it quickly by immediately releasing a fire magic.

.

It’s a basic magic called Fire Lance.

The location where I shoot the magic on is nothing but an empty space.

It isn’t something that can deal much damage but it should be enough to keep a person in check.

.

[gah…!! Impossible, how could I be spotted..!!]

.

But in that empty space, a figure wearing a gray robe, the mark of a member of the SoA , appeared.

.

Rather.

The figure seems transparent like the Goddess’ projection before.

I haven’t felt it’s presence earlier so it must have just entered the room.

.

[Arios Makuba…! Just what the hell of a monster are you..!?] (Projection)
