Teacher caught up in class summoning, repairs mechanical girl with unorthodox skills C27: Let’s buy some armor!
Lucia Alstroemeria, an extremely beautiful woman and the leader of the “Dark Night Knights”, an order of mage knights created by Chancellor Nachtigal.
The first question that comes to mind is “Why is she in this armor shop?” In addition, if I look closely, I can see that this person has a……ring. Brünnhilde looked at her with the same expression as always, and I was on guard. She giggled……….She’s so my type, this one.
“Don’t be alarmed. It’s my day off today. I was walking around town with nothing in particular to do when I saw you and your girlfriend entering this store. …… I was a little curious about her, so I followed you. I’m sorry.”
“You can call me Lucia. Can you tell me your name?”
“……I’m Sage, and she’s Brunnhilde.”
“Sage, Brunnhilde…….That’s a good name.”
Hmmm……She said she was interested in Brünnhilde, but the only connection she had was yesterday on the road…..
“Sage, don’t be so alarmed. I’m just genuinely interested in Brünnhilde. I have no intention of doing anything to you.”
“Well, that’s understandable. I meet the black knight from yesterday again, and she suddenly introduces herself, and says she’s interested in my daughter, it’s natural for anyone to be wary.”
“I’ll give you some advice on choosing armor. I know a lot about weapons and armor.”
“……Well, since you’re here, can you help me?”
“I’ll leave it to you. And don’t use honorifics, you seem older than me.”
“Older than……Excuse me, how old are you?”
You’re young…….23 and you’re the leader of a knights order. I’m five years older than you, but……well, I don’t care how old you are. Anyway, let’s pick out some armor and get to the guild as quickly as possible.
The first thing I choose is armor to protect my body. Lucia showed us a selection of light steel breastplates.
“Sage, looking at your flesh, you’re not suited for heavy equipment. You need only the bare minimum of armor. A breastplate to protect your heart, leggings to protect your lower limbs, and gauntlets to protect your arms. I also recommend that you wear a cloak with magical protection.”
“I see. It is true that the heavy ones are a bit tough, so I want to go with the light ones.”
“Then let’s put on some breastplates, turn around.”
“Yeah, yeah, yeah…….”
Lucia comes up behind me and helps me with my equipment by unclasping my breastplate. What can I say?……I was ticklish.
“How’s it going, isn’t it painful?”
“Okay. I’ve got some other ideas. What do you want?”
“No, I’m good.”
First, I got a breastplate. It’s a simple piece of armor that could be found anywhere, but it gives me a sense of security just by wearing it. I also bought a shin guards made of the same material.
Next was the gauntlets and Lucia’s recommendation was.
“Sage, is the sword your only weapon?”
“Sort of. I don’t plan on doing much fighting.”
“I see. But you need to be prepared for emergencies. So I recommend this gauntlet with a built-in weapon.”
“Yes. It’s a gauntlet with a foldable popping knife and a foldable short bow, the short bow can be used as a deterrent and the foldable popping knife can be used as a concealed weapon.”
“Wow…..is kind of cool.”
“I bet. Try it out.”
As I was told, I equipped the gauntlet in my right hand. It is surprisingly light and fits my right hand well. When I move my hand upward, a knife pops out from underneath the gauntlet, and when I move my hand downward, the gimmick on top of the gauntlet opens up to form a bow.
This is just like the symbolic weapon of the Order of Assassins. Well, I might be able to use it for something, so I might as well buy it. By the way, I used a regular gauntlet in my left hand.
“And the cape.”
It’s an item with magical protection made of the same material as a magician’s robe, and it can be used to defend against magic to a certain extent if you channel magic power through it.
“A certain extent.”
“It’s just a temporary measure, but on the battlefield, that temporary measure can make the difference between victory and defeat. A breastplate is not enough to protect you, so there is no harm in buying one.”
“If you say so………”
I went to the cloak section in the magician’s robe department. I feel like I’m being carried away by Lucia, but……it’s okay.
“Sage, do you have a favorite color?”
“No, not really.”
“Hmm…….how about this gray cloak? It has a hood to hide your face, and the magic in it is ‘magic resistance’. It’s a product that increases your magical protection when you put magic into it.”
“I like it……”
“Go ahead and equip it.”
I did as I was told and put on the hood as well…….I look just like the assassins of the Assassination Order, don’t I? I’ll try not to wear the hood. Lucia looked at me, nodded widely, and smiled with satisfaction.
“You’re equipped like an assassin.”
Hey, who’s an assassin?”
“Ha ha, I’m kidding. But it suits you, Sage. Hey, Brunnhilde.”
“Yes. It suits you very well, sensei.”
“Thanks……I won’t look like an amateur adventurer anymore.”
When I headed to the checkout with my gear on, the fee was 50 gold coins. My plan was to settle for 30 gold coins and have 100 gold coins left, but I went way over my budget. Now I have 80 gold coins left.
“Lucia, thanks for helping me.”
“Don’t worry about it. It was fun for me too. Besides, I’ve never tried to fix a gentleman’s equipment before…….I was a little nervous.”
“Sensei, let’s head to our destination, the Adventurer’s Guild.”
I had a bit of a hunch, we could head to the Adventurer’s Guild, or we could talk to Lucia.
“Lucia, thank you for helping me, I’d like to invite you to dinner at…….”
I’m starting to feel embarrassed. Isn’t this picking up women?
I’m inviting a woman I’ve known for less than an hour to dinner. To put it bluntly, I suggested it because I wanted to hear about Chancellor Nachtigal from Lucia, but it looks like I’m just picking up women. Oh man, my face is getting hot……Is it my imagination, or is Lucia’s face also red?
“Oh, that……is that an invitation to that……dinner?”
“Well, that……is. No, if you can’t ……”
“No, it’s…..the first time I’ve ever been asked out to dinner by a man, so……what should I do?”
“No, wait! I mean, I can’t right now, but I can……this evening!”
“Oh………………is a meal! Just food!”
“I know, I know. Relax.”
I’m kind of freaked out. I mean……that’s cute. I think I’m going to fall in love with her. It’s not even been an hour since we met, but……is this what they call love at first sight? No, no, something’s wrong. She’s the leader of a knight order, and she’s wearing all black armor like that. Maybe she never had a male presence in her life.
“So, how about we have dinner……tonight?”
“Oh, yeah, no problem. Where would you like to go?”
“Hmmm, we’re new in town, any suggestions where we can go?”
“How about the Blanche restaurant by the Adventurer’s Guild? I’ll make the reservation for you, for three people, of course.”
“Okay, that’s it.”
“Uh……I’ll be off.”
So, for some reason, I invited the leader of the “Dark Knight Order” to dinner. For the record, I have no erotic ulterior motives. What I do have is information about Nachtigal.
The other side seems to be interested in Brunnhilde, and I’m sorry to use her as bait, but I think I can get a lot out of her.
“Let’s go to the Adventurer’s Guild.”
Let’s gather information about the ruins at the Adventurer’s Guild.
