Hurried home


We talked for a while with a servant of Marius' house, who probably came to pick us up.


However, they do not discuss each other's backgrounds in detail. We're just talking about the relatively bland stuff in the kingdom's territory.


As I had overheard earlier, the kingdom's territory is apparently at peace for the moment.


Could it be possible that we are the ones who can tell the kingdom centre about the revolutionary upheaval in the empire the fastest? It's kind of like being a spy.


Well, the request itself had a half-spy, half-dumb-boy atmosphere, asking us to infiltrate an enemy country and rescue hostages, so it's a little late for that.

We had been taking a break to talk, but now that I have recovered enough energy and contrary to appearances, I am in no condition to relax too much, I decide to leave.


The servant of Marius's house somewhat deliberately told us that he and I would go with him to the halfway point for our mutual safety and we set off together (although the structure and the actuality of our trip have coincided).


Left the buzzing ground. Not a few people are leaving in the same way, but not that many. If we keep a little distance, we may be able to talk without being heard.


Walking down the highway of the plains where a people are seen scarcely. How far ahead are Camillo and his team? I would like to return home as soon as possible.


A little later, when there were no more people around, the servant said his name. They say it is Ms. Katerina.


Assuming you know my name, I also introduced Helen. Helen says, "Nice to meet you," and bows her head with a perky smile.


「Best regards. I never thought I would meet the “Thunderbolt”.」


Katerina returned the greeting somewhat excitedly. Well, this guy was a martial artist. ...... He must be happy to see someone who has made a name for himself in the martial arts. Diana was the same way.


「That name has fallen to the ground.」


Helen says in a dark voice. I shook Helen's hand and said.


「We'll make a new one, and you can still start over, But wouldn't it be nice if we just took a break now?」


「Eizo ......」


「You two look like a real couple when I look at you like this.」


Katerina make fun of my words. I blush involuntarily and look away from Helen.


I know that this is a very new thing for an old man who is not in high school and is over 40 on the inside, but unfortunately, I don't have many experiences like this in my previous world, so I don't know how to deal with it.


Helen seemed to do the same, but her grip was never shaken off.


A little further on, I saw a horse-drawn carriage parked on the side of the road. I can feel Helen's body stiffen. Did she have a flashback to something that happened before she caught?


「It's okay, that's Camillo's.」


I speak to Helen in the gentlest voice I can muster. Helen relaxed a little.


Slowly approaching the carriage, a known face peeks out from the back of the cart and smiles. Camillo.


「Too late.」


「You see that place where all the people are gathered just outside the gate?」


「Oh, I see. Moreover, you guys were lined up on foot. ......」


Camillo was convinced when I explained it plainly.


「Okay, then get in.」


At their urging, we climbed into the carriage.


「Oh, come to think of it, you never asked me about Ms. Katerina.」


I ask Camillo, wondering why he let me on so easily without asking me about the growing crowd.


「Oh. I asked the Count to come back in a week or so to see how things were going. You know, just in case.」


「If you hadn't come out for a few more days, I would have entered the empire to track down Master Eizo and the others.」


Katerina says casually. It’s a mystery Marius asked for backup in case of emergency not the client, the Marquis. Camillo must have had some kind of plan.


I replied vaguely to them and got back on the carriage.
