“It’s magnificent. They are not afraid of giants at all. They seem to have been well trained by their commander and military strategist.” (Volks)
These are the words of Volks, the man who killed a Giant right behind me.
The bravery of the Libra Division seems to have won the approval of the wandering warrior, but he seems to have one doubt.
“I knew you could take on the Giants because you’re a man who never fights battles with no chance of winning.” (Volks)
“I’ll gladly receive the compliment.”
“But you’re still very capable and intelligent. You inspire your troops by standing on the front lines yourself, you turn weak soldiers into brave soldiers through your detailed strategies, and you even stand against giants.” (Volks)
“Originally, strategists shouldn’t be on the front lines.”
“Well, it’s a type of situation that I can’t do that—Well, it seems that my people are also quite lively.” (Volks)
A quick scan of the battlefield revealed that the Doll tribe, led by Lululucca, we’re fighting like they’re unstoppable.
“Can they continue to drive the Titan Corps to annihilation?” (Volks)
“No, they won’t make it that far. But they will retreat. Our objective is to drive the Titan Corps out of Ernia.”
“So, you think we’ve achieved our goal?” (Volks)
“I’d say we’ve achieved our goal.”
As I said this, the giants turned their backs on us. I heard the sound of a conch shell in the distance. It seems that this is the signal to retreat.
“I would like to go after them, but it would be foolish to go after them and get hit by a counterattack. I’ll just ignore it.”
“How kind.” (Volks)
“I’m a troublesome person.”
As I lie there, a messenger comes from behind us. Out of breath, he said.
“Leon-sama, a giant has appeared in the city of Yuzil.” (Messenger)
“City of Yuzil!?”
The town of Yuzil is the town where we were staying until just now. It’s a hot spring town, but a giant has appeared there.
“Have they defeated soldiers?” (Volks)
Volks asked, but apparently not.
“Well, that’s what happened, but larger species much larger than a normal giant appeared.” (Messenger)
“Larger species!? Is it bigger than the current ones?”
“It seems that they are 20 meters tall.” (Messenger)
“20 meters…” (Volks)
Volks gulped but soon realized that his sister was staying in the city of Yuzil.
When I notice this, I try to turn the army around, but I don’t think I can do that in time, so I tell Victor, Nine, and Volks to get on their horses.
“We’re going to form a maid rescue squad, right?” (Nine)
That’s what Nine said, but that was the summary.
“I see. We’ll have to work overtime then?” (Victor)
“I’ll get you paid for overtime.”
“You owe me a cognac later.” (Victor)
Nine and Victor gladly accepted, and the four of us got on our horses.
It took us a couple of hours to reach the city of Yuzil on horseback.
From a distance, it looked like smoke was rising towards the sky.
“It’s a hot spring town, so it’s easy to confuse it with steam, but it looks like the large giant has broken down the outer wall.”
“Should I say it’s just the right timing or the worst timing?” (Victor)
“I don’t know, but one thing I’m curious about one thing.”
Nine says on behalf of us.
“Why can’t the giant enter the city when he has broken down the wall?” (Nine)
“–that is!” (Victor)
I explain to Victor, who has no idea.
A proud girl in a maid outfit is struggling under the feet of the large giant.
“This is because Chloe, the princess’s number one maid, is fighting.”
If you look, the maid Chloe is slicing through the legs of the large giant while wielding her pocket watch.
She was confusing the enemy with her quick attacks and stalled the giant.
She looked like a saint, like a scene from a religious painting.
“It’s amazing that she was able to prevent the giant from invading with her tiny body.” (Victor)
“It’s mind-boggling, but it can’t last forever. Let’s give her some support.” (Nine)
At the moment Nine suggested this, the giant’s powerful foot was directed at Chloe. Chloe avoided it but was knocked off her feet by the giant’s stomp causing a minor earthquake.
—That is a fatal move.
The sideways sweep of the giant, which can easily be avoided by Chloe normally. However, she can’t do that while she’s in her current position. Thus, Chloe takes the blow straight-on.
It’s not just that she’s a few dozen meters away, but that she’s blown up into the rubble of the city’s walls.
I don’t know if she’s alive or dead, but the giant is still trying to pursue her, so I try to ask Victor and Nine for backup, but Volks is already moving.
Moving at the speed of the wind, he mounted the giant’s shoulder and slashed at it.
Viktor and Nine followed suit.
I thanked them and headed for Chloe in the rubble.
The Chloe I knew would not have died from something like this. But even so, it was easy to imagine that she was badly injured. In fact, she looked badly injured.
Chloe was there buried in the rubble.
Her maid’s uniform, her pride and joy, was tattered and several bones were broken. Her ribs, right arm, and several other bones seemed to be broken.
I immediately gave her a potion, but the bones didn’t join right away. The wound will close up and at least stop the bleeding, but she still won’t be able to fight right away. I carry her on my back, trying to get her to wait, but she refuses.
Chloe said, calmly and forcefully brushing my hand away.
“…Leon-sama thank you, Leon-sama, I appreciate your kindness, but I can’t just walk away now.” (Chloe)
“ You have done your duty, and thanks to you guarding the entrance to the city, the damage to the city of Yuzil has been kept to a minimum. What more do you wish to do?”
“Honor. I want the world to know that my family is one of the bravest.” (Chloe)
With those words, I understood Chloe’s intentions. I understood why she was fighting through so much pain.
“…My brother abandoned the Doll Warrior Ritual to save me.” (Chloe)
“…Did you know of it?”
“My brother kept it a secret, but I knew.” (Chloe)
“Then you know that your brother is the bravest warrior in the world. You know that he is the gentlest brother in the world. The Dolls value honor above all else. He gave it up to save the family he loves. Not everyone can do that.”
“Yes, I know. That’s why I want to fight. Can I do the same things as my brother? I want to see if I have the same blood flowing as my brother.” (Chloe)
“I want to see if I can do what my brother did. I want to see if I can protect the fragile ones. I can only do that now, at this moment. When I’m here, protecting this city and making sure no one gets hurt, I feel like weight will be lifted off my shoulders for the first time.” (Chloe)
Staring at Chloe’s eyes.
She had been saved by her brother. She had heard that her brother was looked down upon by his clan and that she herself had been treated unfairly. She wanted to see outside the forest, to escape her fiancé. She said that this was one of the reasons she left the forest, but the truth was that the unbearable prejudice of her clan probably kept her away from the forest.
The Dolls are an honor-bound warrior tribe, but they also have a narrow-minded side. They would not tolerate the abandonment of the Warrior’s Ritual under any circumstance. Their whole would probably look at them the same way. It was a common occurrence in human society.
Chloe doesn’t seem to blame the Doll tribe for that anymore.
I don’t either.
What she wants to settle is not a grudge against the Dolls. It’s a conflict within her own heart.
She will fight here until the end. Defeat the Giant.
She thinks that if she can do that, all of her frustrations will melt away.
I was certain of that.
That’s why I’m going to cooperate with her.
“…I’ve just given you a simple potion. What I’m going to give you next is a very potent bone-rejoining one, but it will have its side effects, okay?”
“Of course.” (Chloe)
“You’ll just have to find out what the side effects are.”
“Fufufu, I don’t care about the side effects. Leon-sama wouldn’t give me something with such terrible side effects, would you?” (Chloe)
“Well, yeah. It won’t affect the body that much but cause severe pain later.”
“Well, thank you for your kindness.” (Chloe)
Playful but unhesitant, Chloe plants her feet on the ground as she drinks up the bright red potion. Wincing as she firmly made her step.
“…I think I can fight this.” (Chloe)
“Oh, that’s good. By the way, that potion can also increase your attack power for a short time.”
“I see, it feels like my body is full of energy.” (Chloe)
“I’m going to pour all my magic power into that pocket watch and have you shoot it into that giant’s brain.”
Looking at the giant the Volks and the others are fighting.
It looks huge and ferocious beyond all I’ve seen.
“…If you and your brother can move to its shoulder.”
“If I can. No, I’ll definitely hit it in the forehead. I want to crush its skull.” (Chloe)
“I see, let’s do it—This is going to be difficult.”
I said and started running.
It was because she sensed that Volks and the others were having a hard time fighting.
Chloe returned to the front line with the speed of a gale, and I ran behind her.
