I was sold at the lowest price C260: As a Mercenary / Nagisa

 

We got information that Yuta might be with a group named the Swordsmen. According to the report they went to a country called Tamihar, one of the Three Kingdoms Alliance.

“‘If the Sword Clan is headed for the Three Kingdoms Alliance, then there could be a major war on the horizon.”

Alana asked in response to Emina’s words.

“What do you mean by that?”

“The Sword Clan is said to be the leading anti-Elysian force. If they’ve been invited to join the Three Kingdoms Alliance against Elysium, then that’s what it means.”

“The war between the Elysian Empire and the Three Kingdoms Alliance……It’s a case that smells like money more than anything else. Well, the first priority this time is to recover that idiot Yuta, so we’ll try to stay out of it.”

I appreciate Jean’s decision. I want you to concentrate on finding Yuta for now.

We then followed the Sword Clan into Tamihar. As soon as we entered the country, we were approached by the army.

“This is the Army of Tamihar surveillance vessel. What is the reason for your entry into our country and what is your affiliation?”

“This is the Iron Knights, a mercenary group. We have no intention of antagonizing your country. We heard that the Sword Clan had entered our country, so we came after them. If possible, I would like to know the whereabouts of the Sword Clan.”

“I understand that you have no hostile intentions. But I’m afraid I can’t give you any information related to military operations.”

“All right. Then I would like your permission to operate within your country.”

“I can’t give you that permission because it’s wartime. You must leave the country as soon as possible.”

Jean thought for a moment about the other side’s response and then broke the ice.

“Then tell the higher-ups in the military that we’re interested in joining your army.”

Jean said he’d try to stay out of it……

“Wait a minute. I’ll check with the top brass.”

When Jean heard the reply, he turned off the external output sound.

“Jean, I thought you were trying to stay out of it.”

Alana pointed out to Jean.

“We’re going to get kicked out of the country but if they hire us as mercenaries, we can kill two birds with one stone: money and information.”

“I don’t think they’d be willing to hire a bunch of mercenaries who just popped in.”

“The surveillance ship said they’re at war now so they need all the help they can get to fight against the Elysian Empire.”

Jean’s prediction had been correct. The surveillance boat replied,

“The commander will see you now. If we can come to an agreement on the terms, he will hire you.”

The surveillance ship led us to the base where the commander was. Only Jean and Alana entered the base to negotiate the terms of employment.

“How did it go?”

Linnecarlo asked as soon as Jean and Alana returned.

“I’ve signed a short-term contract with them. The reward is 100 million gold and information about the Sword Clan. It’s a small price to pay for dealing with the Elysian Empire, but hey, what the hell.”

“What do you mean by short-term?”

“It’s a one-time deal in a hotly contested area. I’m sorry guys, but you’re going to have to work a little harder.”

“If it’s just one battle, it can’t be helped. Let’s get this over with and get some information on Yuta.”

It seems that in Linnecarlo’s mind, “Sword Clan=Yuta”.

We were soon guided by the army of Tamihar to a heavily fortified area. The place is called Behan, and it is a military district that serves as a bulwark to protect the city.

“Jean, how much information do we have on the enemy forces?”

At Linnecarlo’s question, Jean became a little sullen.

“The enemy’s strength is about 3,000 magicrafts and more than 70 battleship-type ride carriers. In contrast, our allies are outnumbered with 2,000 magicrafts and 30 ride carriers.”

“That’s quite a power disparity. You said one battle, but I wonder how much we need to fight?”

“The deal is we stay here until they’re evenly matched with the enemy.”

“It’s going to be tough to destroy a thousand magicrafts.”

Yukiha and I, who are indebted to the Iron Knights so we will also be participating in this battle, the more people, the better, except for one person, that is.

“Nagisa, I’ll show you what class 3 is capable of.”

I can feel the hostility in Linnecarlo’s words. She doesn’t like the fact that I’m a class above her. I don’t mind that though.
