An impossible task for the military.
A single division must defeat the empire’s most powerful Titan Corps.
The Libra Division, which successfully accomplished this task, was treated as a hero by the surrounding townspeople.
When they entered the city of Yuzil to rest their troops, the young women shouted in the streets, the housewives prepared food, and the men served them alcohol.
They praised the courage of the soldiers of the Libra Division with open arms.
The soldiers loosened up, but no one went to the tavern.
The soldiers eased up, but none of them went to the tavern, because I had not yet given them permission to leave their combat formation, but the princess insisted.
“The soldiers are tired. Besides, the threat of the empire is gone for now. They need to rest.”
She had a good point, so I followed her advice.
If we don’t let the soldiers rest when they can, they will be in trouble when a battle breaks out.
If I may make an excuse, I’ve always been sensitive to the subtleties of such soldiers, but at the moment I don’t have the time to pay attention to them.
I had used up all my magic power in yesterday’s battle, and my whole body was racked with Magic Pain.
Magical pain is the magical version of muscle pain, and it occurs when you use too much magical power. It is said that the pain is like the muscle pain you feel when you run a full marathon without any preparation, combined with a toothache and severe burns. In other words, it’s the pain of hell, and not just for me, but for the magician Nine as well.
He was like an old man who was bedridden in his dormitory.
I’m better than him, because I’m used to using up my magic, but my knees are shaking from the pain, and I wobble when I stand up.
“…I won’t be able to do anything for a few days.”
I realized that, but I had a very important Lady who would make sure I didn’t spend my day bedridden.
The leader of our division.
The princess said that we should take a hot spring bath the other day.
The princess prepares a strong soldier, carries me, and takes me to the hot spring.
The princess was unusually forceful, but I was able to solve the mystery.
When I got to the hot spring, I found that it was reserved for private use, and there was already a guest in the large bath.
It was Chloe, the maid.
She smiled and said.
“I’m suffering pain from hell, too. Let’s take a bath together, pains and all.” (Chloe)
It’s all Sicily’s arrangement, but well, I’m not angry.
The girls were completely naked, but it would have degraded my manhood if I had been excessively embarrassed here.
However, I turned my back towards them and pretended to be distracted by the scenery as I spoke.
“…Chloe, how are you and Volks?”
“My brother? I stayed with him last night and talked to him for the first time in a long time. When I woke up, he was gone.” (Chloe)
“Did he leave immediately?”
“Yes. I had nothing left to worry about. That’s why he said he would continue his journey.” (Chloe)
“…Well, siblings don’t have to be beside each other all the time.”
“That’s right. We’ll continue to communicate with each other no matter how far away we are from each other.” (Chloe)
Hearing those, Sicily said
“Is it beautiful to how well you get along?” (Sicily)
That’s true, so Chloe says nothing and did not refute.
“…Thank you, for this time Leon-sama.” (Chloe)
“What are you talking about?”
“What do you mean? —For everything, for bringing honor to Her Highness, for solving the problems of the Dolls, and for saving my brother and me.” (Chloe)
“None of these are my own accomplishments. It was the soldiers who fought the giants, and it was the cooperation of the Dolls and Elves that saved the Bana Forest. In the end, it was you and your brother who saved each other. Even when you were apart, the bond between your hearts was never severed, so I guess you had always understood each other.”
“But Leon-sama built bridges to all of those.” (Chloe)
“Well then, if I lose my job, maybe I’ll become a carpenter?”
When I laughed, the princess and the maid laughed at my poor joke.
The light, lustrous voice echoed through the bathhouse.
I wanted to keep listening to them, but the truth is, I’m not very good at long baths.
I usually bathe like a crow. [T/N: He means he just takes a quick dip or a shower.]
So, I told them frankly that I would leave before they did.
They readily agreed, but in the end, Chloe said,
“Would you like coffee milk after your bath? Or do you prefer regular milk?” (Chloe)
I’ll get the right answer in the shortest time possible because I’m the princess’s strategist.
“Make it strawberry milk. I like strawberry milk.”
Chloe, without laughing at my childish palate, bowed her head graciously and prepared a glass of chilled strawberry milk for me.
