Episode 67 To the Meltaria Kingdom
There are 3 sponsored ch in the queue that will be released later today. I was to busy yesterday to tl them. This ch was tled at 2am and couldn’t do more. I schedule my releases at 8am my timezone for those who don’t know.
We were headed to the Kingdom of Meltaria, Linnecarlo’s home country, and we were about to board a ride carrier to get there.
“Wait a minute, your ride carriers are the Edra type, right?”
Linnecarlo’s question, which I didn’t quite understand, was answered by Alana, the original owner of the ride carrier.
“Yes, it’s an Edra type, second generation.”
“Then it can be connected to my ride carrier.”
“Yes, it might be possible, but I think we’ll have to move them separately.”
“There’s only two of us here, and it’s hard to maneuver, so I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to hook you up.”
It seems that the same type of ride carriers can be connected to each other, and Linnecarlo is trying to make it easier for her to maneuver.
“And while you’re at it, may I also ask you to repair my magicraft?”
“Liza, can you do it?”
“Ugh…….You want me to repair four magicrafts by myself?”
“Yeah, I’m sorry, but you’re the only mechanic, so I can’t do it.”
“Oh, that’s too bad, you’ll have to pay for the repair separately…….”
“Hey, Liza……let’s give it our best shot.”
Jean said blackly when he heard that the repair cost was extra.
“I’ll take the……bonus. And with the increase in the number of magicrafts, it’s going to be hard for you to work alone, so think about getting some mechanics to help you.”
“You’re right, I feel sorry for Liza in this situation, so we’ll have to find another mechanic.”
When I expressed my opinion, Liza looked at me seriously and said “I’d be most happy if you’d stay away from Lady Alana!”
She blushed a little and shouted at me……Take it easy, I was so careful, what’s wrong with you…… Then, without question, Linnecarlo connected the ride carriers and started relaxing in our ride carrier as if it were her home.
“Why are you lounging around here, you stupid princess?”
The relentless Jean complained straightforwardly even to the princess.
“It’s boring because there’s nothing over there.”
“Lowlife you should be grateful that the beautiful Lady Linnecarlo is relaxing with you! I could eat three bowls of rice with the sight of Lady Linnecarlo relaxing!”
“Hey Arthur, don’t say that because it’s perverted.”
Arthur was a little depressed when Linnecarlo warned him with a serious face.
“I’m guessing, by any chance, you’re not trying to steal my food right?”
“Oh, I’m not that shallow. Well, you can invite me to dinner if you insist.”
“You’re a …… client, so I’ll at least feed you, but it wouldn’t hurt to show a little gratitude or something.”
For what it’s worth, Jean is kind, and he’s going to make sure she eats dinner.
“I’m sure you’ll be grateful, though you won’t say it.”
“I don’t know what you mean!”
I imagine that Linnecarlo has been gambling all her money away and hasn’t been eating properly, but her appetite is really good. She gobbled up Jean’s food with relish.
“Here’s another one for you, sister”
“Oh, thank you, I’ll take it.”
Nanami was so concerned that she shared her portion with Linnecarlo.
“I was wondering if you could tell me a little bit about the job, Linnecarlo, since the last job wasn’t a very good one.”
I naturally asked this in the course of our dinner conversation.
“……Yes, that’s fine, but if you ask me, it’s still no deal-breaker.”
“You’re worried about that, we’ll honor the contract once it’s made.”
Jean replied without a pause.
“Then I will tell you, I am ashamed to say, that the situation in the Kingdom of Meltaria is currently unstable.”
“What, is there a civil war going on?”
“No, the king is in a critical condition. He doesn’t have much time left.”
“The king is Linnecarlo’s father, right?”
“Yes…….Father is dying…….So there’s a lot of confusion about the succession…….”
Linnecarlo looked very sad……I knew it was hard to see her father in such a state.
“Wait a minute, you didn’t hire us to fight your own war for power, did you?”
Alana asked back in surprise.
“No, I’m the third princess – ninth in line to the throne in the male-dominated Meltaria, and I’m not aiming for the throne despite my status.”
“Why don’t you……?”
“If this continues, the first prince, Mushym, will become king…….”
“Why shouldn’t the first prince be king?”
“I don’t mean to speak ill of my brother, but……he’s a scum! No, he’s an outcast with no humanity! If he becomes king, Meltaria will be ruined.”
I think Linnecarlo is mostly right, but such a strong condemnation of her brother is……
