Monster Musume chapter 57: I go to the capital!
The next day after Shadow-san appeared, because the principal, Sasha-sensei and I are going to receive a reward for educating the heroes, we left for the imperial capital. In the first place, it isn’t necessary to go personally if they send it…. But there is significance in receiving it directly, therefore the purpose isn’t understood well. I really wanted to go sightseeing in the imperial capital, but specifically now I don’t need it. Spirit-san said that she will also come to meet me….
“Has Sensei been to the capital before?” Tsuchio
“Of course. Well, there are a lot shops in the capital, but I don’t remember it well” Sasha-sensei
“Tsuchio wanted to go to the royal library. With our library, is there really that big of a difference?” Principal
“That’s right, there may possibly be useful information. The entrance fee, how much is it?” Tsuchio
“Lets see, how much was it…because it was a long time ago, it seems that I have forgotten it” Principal
For the principal to forget it…was it dozens of years ago?
“It is impolite…if you don’t forget trivial things, you wouldn’t be able to remember other things”
Such a thing, though it’s small talk, we hurry along. Because the number of people is few, we intentionally didn’t use a carriage. Because the distance we advance in one dayincreased, the time is also reduced. I ride on Rin, the principal on a horse and Sasha-sensei on Garm. The distance we advanced with 1 body is short, so we don’t seem to lose to a horse if we replace it little by little either. Lime is with me on Rin, while Ruu is flying around. As for Shadow-san, she became my shadow again. I should decide a name for her…but I can’t think of a good name easily. Either way, I need to give her a proper name. For now I call her Shadow-san.
On our journey to the imperial capital, whether it is because of Garm or because it’s daytime, no devil beast or thief has attacked us. However, because sensei´s Garm returned to her shadow at night, there are night attacks from thieves and devil beasts who overestimated their abilities. Well, they were naturally repelled and became food for Shadow-san. What I understood in these past few days is that the life Shadow-san absorbs seems to be necessary to strengthen her somehow. Even though she absorbed a large amount, it seems she has no limit. Originally I thought she can absorb only as much as she can breath in…but in Shadow-san’s case, I can cover the minimum of her meal with me by all means. So all the things that she absorbed from the devil beasts are invested in her growth. It’s only a matter of time before she evolves.
And at the evening four days later, we arrived at the imperial capital. Because we were in the neighborhood of the capital and we all didn’t want to camp outside, we considerably hurried on the fourth day.
“Somehow, we arrived at the royal capital before sunset. Which inn should we stay at?” Tsuchio
“I was told that we can stay today and tomorrow in the royal palace. From the day after tomorrow, we have to get an inn…” Sasha-sensei
“The matter of the reward should be finished in the morning. In the afternoon you can do what you want, so let’s leave on the morning of the day after tomorrow” Principal
“That’s fine for me. Originally, I thought that’s the plan” Sasha-sensei
“It isn’t a problem for me, too. For now, I should be able to go to the library” Tsuchio
At the entrance of the imperial capital, the royal palace has already come into my view. It is an excellent castle deserving of being called the royal castle. Well, there is no opportunity to enter anymore, so may I go once? I don’t want to see the royal family though.
The imperial capital is surrounded by three walls. First the outside wall, the second wall and then the third wall. Between the first and the second wall is the commoner district, between the second and third wall is the noble district and at the third wall is the royal palace. At the commoner district, slums seem to spread in the first wall and it is a place where you don’t want to stop.
To cross the wall, it is necessary to show your information papers. It doesn’t seem to be so severe when you go through the second wall, while the third wall seems to be quite severe.
“Take your information papers out!” Soldier
We just arrived at the gate of the third wall, too. The principal and sensei handed their teacher certificates and I handed my student ID to the guard soldier. It was covered with dust from the drawer it laid in all the time…. It is good that I hadn’t lost it.
“Let me see…I’m sorry! Are you really Maxwell…” Soldier
“Yes that’s right. These two people are my companions, so let us go through” Principal
“Of course! Please, pass!” Soldier
Soldiers saluting with a whack and looked to the side, when we entered the royal palace from the entrance. The inside is like a large garden and various buildings are built in the circumference of the castle. Haa, great….
“We have been expecting you, Maxwell-sama” Arrack-san
When I look around the circumference restlessly, a slender man who wore glasses has spoken to others. What, it is a person who seems to have little luck….
“If it isn’t Arrack. You got a little thin” Principal
“It’s been a long time. I would prefer if you said acquaintance” Arrack
“In fact, is Osnyl handing the reward?” Principal
“That’s so and the heroes currently belong to the knight order” Arrack
“Is that so. Ah, this is Arrack who is my disciple. Was it just the vice-staff officer of the knight order?” Principal
“Nice to meet you. I’m Arrack, vice staff officer of the kingdom´s knight order” Arrack
“I´m Sasha. I´m teaching taming at the academy” Sasha-sensei
“I´m Mikado and I´m a student of the academy. Those behind me are my familiars” Tsuchio
Ruu and the others nod. Arrack-san who saw that,
“Excuse me. Mikado-san are you also a tamer?” Arrack
“Yes, but I’m inexperienced and still have a way to go” Tsuchio
“Not at all, because you’re a companion of the heroes, isn’t it beyond one serving? What’s with that mask?” Arrack
“In the past, I suffered an injury on my face….I’m sorry, but is it fine with that?”
“Yes, of course. It became considerably dark now, so let’s go inside first of all. I’ll show you the way to the lodging. Because there is a place where you can put your familiars nearby, please bring them there. Well, Will it only be that unicorn or?”
Ruu is almost a human and Lime is a human-type. Uu, I´m sorry Rin, but bear with it for now….
“Ruu and Lime……You stay in the same room as me” Tsuchio
“Let’s sleep on the way back together…” Tsuchio
After leaving Rin in the monster stable, I go to the building named lodging.
“This is the place where officials stay overnight, because I often stay up all night. The people living here are all single” Arrack-san
“Anyway, will Arrack also live here? Do women associates now stay here?” Principal
“I´m not…recently I’ve been busy with various things” Arrack-san
“As the second knight order leader, you have the duty to defend the royal capital. Particularly, you can’t do what you want” Principal
“Because documents are accumulated…as the vice staff officer, I can’t let it be so” Arrack-san
“That’s not good, it is precipitate on success in life” Principal
“As it is, I won’t get a chance to succeed in life in life…” Arrack-san
Principal and Arrack-san talked about various things. Principal’s student…after all, would be a great person.
“Sensei Sensei, how many knight orders exist? And are the roles different?” Tsuchio
“Didn’t you know about it? There are 10 knight orders, the first knight order normally subdue strong devil beasts, but they are now the bodyguards of the heroes. The second knight order defend the peace and order of the royal capital, the third and fourth knight order defend the southern border, the fifth and sixth knight order defend the northern border, the seventh and eighth knight order defend the eastern border and the ninth and tenth knight order defend the western border” Sasha-sensei
“Haaa, they are quite large” Tsuchio
“In addition, there is the royal court magician belonging to the magic station…. I want him to make a tamer department” Sasha-sensei
“Is that so…” Tsuchio
I am led to the room of the staff lodgings. Principal and Sasha-sensei, I Ruu and Lime had one room assigned. Because there are several beds equally spaced, I seem to be able to sleep separately from Ruu and Lime.
“You can have your meal at the dining room on the 1st floor, but it isn’t free…” Arrack-san
“Ah, what should I do for the food for my familiars? The dining room probably doesn’t sell it” Tsuchio
“When you inform the dining hall, I think it can be prepared if it isn’t something special. Then, it was a long travel, good bye” Arrack-san
He said so, and Arrack-san left. Then, Shall we eat dinner for the time being?
The next day. Ruu tried to crawl inside my bed at night, however Lime and Shadow-san protected me together, so I was able to sleep well. At night it was Shadow-san´s one man show, the reason is that Lime can´t see the whole surrounding in the darkness which is her demerit. Although it’s an overwhelming disadvantage, she admirably defended my chastity, no, I have already been robbed of it. Because life force is being given to Mr. shadow all the while recently, doing various thing together with Ruu at night is not so healthy. If I have the composure, then I should deal with her properly huh.
The dining hall of the official lodgings had a wide variety with moderate taste and it was cheap above all. It has the feeling of a company cafeteria.
“When you finish breakfast, we’ll go to receive the reward immediately” Principal
“From Osnyl-san?” Tsuchio
“If I’m not mistaken, he is the military minister. He is also a student of the principal” Sasha-sensei
“Yes, he is the same age as Kisato. He complained that he wanted to appear in the spotlight as well” Principal
Haa, the same age as Kisato. Is he a muscular middle aged man….
“Or more precisely, when Kisato was also her student, then how old is the principal?” Tsuchio
“Don’t ask a woman for her age” Sasha-sensei
“Eh…sensei, do you not know it?” Tsuchio
“I don’t Particularly mind it. Even an elf lives for hundreds of years and it isn’t strange” Sasha-sensei
Uuum…I haven’t seen an elf at all. She’d inform me soon what may be told or isn’t it necessary to step from this place?
We who finished breakfast entered the castle with Arrack-san who came to pick us up. I was allowed to take Ruu and Lime with me, so it wasn’t necessary for them to wait at the monster stable. As for Rin…well because she is a unicorn I can’t take her inside the castle, so she waits alone at the monster stable. After the talk is brought to an end quickly, I must go to meet her. When I went to her to give breakfast, she had a lonely expression in her eyes, which tighten my heart and I needed to tell myself not to worry about it…. Uuu, poor Rin. I’ll love her alot later!
“Ah, Arrack-san! Please guide us!” Tsuchio
“Ha, Haa…this way” Arrack-san
“Hey Mikado. Don’t trouble Arrack so much”
“I didn’t put it in my shadow, it’s inconvenient as expected”
We followed Arrack-san. Going up the stairs from a big hall, we walked through a long corridor and arrived in front of a door. On the wall was a plaque on which militar minister room was written.
“It’s me Arrack, I brought Maxwell-sama here” Arrack-san
“Oh, she finally came! Enter!” Osnyl-san
A low voice which passes through is being heard well from behind the door. I go inside with the principal and Arrack-san closed the door behind me. In the workroom there is a work desk standing behind a window and shelves with documents that are lined up on the wall. There are no decorations and only things necessary for work are put here.
“Sensei it’s been a long time. I heard the story from Kisato. Is that boy the rumored Tsuchio?” Osnyl-san
“Eh, isn’t this Mikado-san?” Arrack-san
“Ah, in front of the heroes, he wears this mask and name himself Mikado. I don’t know for what reason” Osnyl-san
“Then, your face isn’t injured…” Arrack-san
“I’m sorry, it is a lie. Well, it’s still a fact that I don’t want to show my face” Tsuchio
Even if I show it to these people, there is no problem. After all, because of the similar features, they wouldn’t think I’m from the different world. Even the principal didn’t notice.
“Should I take off my mask? I only just dont want to be seen by the heroes” Tsuchio
“Yes, it would be better if you can do that” Principal
When I take off my mask, I didn’t know that my face attracts many eyes.
“…You don’t need to particularly hide your face”
“That’s so, however you resemble the heroes a little”
“Gradually, that will be impolite to the heroes”
“It’s rude to Tsuchio-san”
Well, you can compare it to an ikemen face, a trap which doesn’t have the position.
“Then, shall I talk about the reward? From the kingdom, as compensation for teaching the heroes,some money is paid as reward. Please receive it” Osnyl-san
On the work desk, Osnyl-san takes out three small sacks. Money is probably included. The principal received all three and put it away in her bosom.
“Certainly. Does it end with this?” Tsuchio
“Thats right. Well, because we came here with so much effort, you heard the story” Sasha-sensei
“Then, let’s associate. What does Sasha do, will you go sight seeing now?” Principal
“I intend to do so…” Sash-sensei
“I want to look at the inside of a castle a little…is that fine?” Tsuchio
“Well, it will be okay. If you are asked by someone, say you were called by Osuniru” Sasha-sensei/Principal
“You aren’t supposed to go too much inside. Don’t approach the places where soldiers guard” Principal
“Understood. If it’s seen a little, I’ll go to the town too” Tsuchio
If I don’t go quickly to Rin´s place…I won’t be able to look at the inside of the castle…! Maybe I should take Ruu and the other to Rin’s place first?
