Chapter 41.4 : Minstrel
But it’s as he said, I just couldn’t picture Kuro as a bad person.
「What shall we do? Shall we go to those woman place? Maybe there’s bug hidden inside his body.」
Yup, he definitely is a suspicious person. Thus we might need to report about this matter to those women.
But I shook my head.
「No, let’s not do that………」
Coz he might have tagged alone if he was the subordinate of the ogres.
But, I noticed that something was wrong. On the contrary, he’s way too suspicious as someone who should be the subordinate of the ogre.
Besides, it’s faster to hide the bug inside of native of Algore rather than an outsider. Just how much of a gap in this plan. There’s no need to use outsider as their spy.
Thus, I think that he was not the subordinate of the ogre.
I wondered who was he? If he wasn’t the subordinate of the ogre, could it be that he is the subordinate of the Dark Knight?
Or else the Dark Knight himself. [TL : F^CK, YOU’RE WAY TOO SHARP OMIROS-KUN!] But still, he might be a subordinate of the ogre. I don’t know why he gave this shield to me but, I think he had a reason to do so. But, I guess I should play along.
Thus, I don’t think I need to tell those women about this matter.
「I see…… Well I guess I have nothing to say if you think so.」
「It’s okay. Do as you like………..」
I felt bad since Macgyusis was just worrying about me. Thus, I have to say my gratitude to him.
「Let’s get going, Macgyusis.」
After saying so, we’re walking down the path.
◆ Minstrel, Kuroki.
「I somehow managed to meet the person himself…….」
I’ve been disguising myself as a minstrel to infiltrate into Algore and met Omiros.
I wanted to see for myself, what kind of a person Omiros is. He seemed like a good person to me. If it’s him, I can rest assured and entrusted Regena to him.
Thus I asked the dwarf, Dario-dono to make that shield.
Nevertheless, my plan was wrecked. I never expected that they would catch me as soon as I came. I had no choice but to make an emergency escape in case they brought me to Shirone and co.
Touching at my broken musical instrument. It was originally a harp.
「I heard that it’s easier for a minstrel to enter a country, but………..」
I heard about that tidbit from Regena’s wet nurse. Thus I came all the to Algore by disguising myself as a minstrel.
And the matter of me didn’t use invisible magic to infiltrate Algore was because I wanted to meet Omiros myself. To know what kind of a person is him.
Using invisible magic would make him wary toward me, and made it even harder to judge his character instead.
Well, I’m still being suspected. But I think I have already grasped his character.
Now I just need to remove Parsish from the stage and confirm Regena’s intention.
But then, I don’t know where is Parsish right now, and Regena is kept at Shirone and co side.
Parsish aim might be to kidnap Regena while I’m fighting Shirone and co. That’s why I prepared some counter-measure.
Kuna left after she said that she’s going to do something about Shirone and co but, I wonder where is she right now? To be honest, I have a bad premonition about her departure.
Maybe I won’t have any means left to do something about Kuna and Shirone. Because I might be too preoccupied when Parsish makes his move.
That’s why if there’s someone who can save Regena in that situation, that person might be Omiros.
I want to do as much as I can to help Regena. But then, I don’t have that much power to go as far as that. I can do more for her if I have more power and authority in human world but, I’m too naive.
That’s why I’ll leave the matter of keeping her safe to Omiros.
That’s why I gave that shield to Omiros.
It was originally my parting gift for Regena.
Thus, I didn’t think it’s a problem to give that shield to Omiros.
Thus, I have no choice but to leave as I’m just a third party.
Looking at the werewolf that was restricted in this house. Though I heard that this werewolf had learnt the way to speak in human language, if I’m not wrong, he’s a subordinate of the ogres.
I don’t know too well the matter about Shirone and co involvement with those ogres. In the first place, why were those ogres aiming for them anyway?
There’s a chance that they’re going to become an obstacle to my plan. That’s why I wanted more information about the ogres.
I approached him and then unfasten the padlock that shut his mouth.
「KUHAAA! ! 」
The werewofl whose mouth just freed took a deep breath.
「Oi, you. Release me! ! If you do as I say, I’ll at least ask Kujig-sama to spare your life! ! 」
Now I heard a familiar name from the werewolf. The name of the ogre who I met in Velos.
「Uhm, my apologize…….. I want to know more about that ogre called Kujig.」
Bowing my head, I asked that question to the werewolf.
「OOOH! ! YOU BASTARD, ARE YOU INSANE! ! I SAY, RELEASE ME RIGHT NOW! ! 」
It seems that normal conversation is impossible.
He said that he’s going to spare my life but he kept releasing his killing intent toward me. It seems that he’s going to kill me as soon as I release him.
「I have no choice I guess………」
He’s a werewolf but, I really didn’t want to use this mean.
It’s a magic that manipulated the target psyche, much more similar to charm magic. The one who become target of this magic would feel an unbearable degree of fear toward the user.
That’s why I can’t bring myself to like this magic. Because manipulating someone’s heart is against my raison d’etre, even if it’s my enemy.
But, depending on the situation, I won’t hesitate to go as far as using this magic.
I placed the palm of my hand on the head of the werewolf, and then invoke this magic.
「Y-Y……… You BAS-…….. You…..」
The werewolf was trembling in fear. Eyes opened wide and flapping his mouth non-stop.
「Werewolf, tell me your name.」
「Da-………… It’s Daigan! ! O Feared One! ! 」
「I see, Daigan. After this, you’re going to obey me.」
「Y-Y-YEEEES SIR! ! 」
「Well then, Daigan. You have something that you need to tell me………」
When I tried to ask the knowledge that I want to know from Daigan.
The door of the house was suddenly opened.
「MEAL IS COMING!」
The one who came in was a little girl around 10 years old. This girl is pushing a cart with two plates on it.
「Thank you, little miss.」
I said my gratitude to her.
Now I can’t extract more information from Daigen with this girl here. Please leave as soon as you left our meal.
It seems that the meal that little girl brought for us is bean soup.
It is the kind of bean that doesn’t need wide land and can be cultivated in rampart, thus it became a staple food for many countries similar to Algore.
「Seriously, bean. Give me meat……..」
Did he know that it’s bean soup from it’s aroma? Daigan was muttering such luxurious things while she brought the meal for us. So I send a glare to scare him a little.
「No, I MEAN BEAN IS DELICIOUS(T^T). I LOVE BEAAAAN(T^T)(T^T)(T^T)(T^T)(T^T)! ! 」
