Teacher caught up in class summoning, repairs mechanical girl with unorthodox skills C37: I don’t want to hear it
I’m confused because of everything that’s going on, but if this is Nachtigal, we can talk quickly. I changed my mind.
Chancellor Nachtigal tells me.
“First of all, is it true that you are a human being summoned by the Ostrode Kingdom?”
“ It is true.”
“Well, then, answer my question first. Then I’ll tell you what you want to know.”
This person has a soft and accepting look in her eyes, but does not show people her deeper side.
I’ll answer Chancellor Nachtigal’s question honestly. I’ll tell her where I was summoned, who summoned me, the age and number of my students, what I was doing in the Ostrode Kingdom, the details of my training, the state of the knights, and the state of the capital.
And the reason why I’m here. I told them about Brünnhilde and my cheat abilities.
“Hmm…….I see, Van Houten hasn’t given up on unifying the continent.”
“What do you mean……?”
“It means exactly what it says. Van Houten’s goal is to unite the Astro Continent. You otherworlders have been summoned to help the Ostrode Kingdom.”
“You’re sure about that?”
“Mm, no doubt. Van Houten’s ambition is outstanding even among the eight of us who are known as Demon Lords. In the past, he had believed in the legend that people from other worlds possessed strong cheats, and had dabbled in reckless otherworldly summoning magic…….The results had been a series of failures, and the unsuccessful summons kept dying from the backlash, but that didn’t stop Van Houten. I don’t know why he wanted to unite the continent so badly, though.”
“The students summoned to……”
“The summoned students are, without a doubt, convenient tools for the Ostrode Kingdom. They will be imprinted with a history of their own making, cared for and entertained, provided with women and men, and trained and nurtured to become………magnificent weapons.”
Now, I’ve made up my mind.
The Ostrode Kingdom is going to use the students as fighting machines. No, there are too many things that come to mind. The smiles of the knights, Ashcroft-sensei, Anastasia-sensei, and even the cat-eared maid were all tools for brainwashing. Was the knight who saved Nakatsugawa also an act? Was that Minotaur also an act? Then what am I?
“Chancellor Nachtigal, you’ve been to the Fauve Kingdom, haven’t you……?”
“Yes. It’s been a few months since the Ostrode Kingdom summoned the otherworlders, and after the level of their cheats increase and they gain experience in actual combat, the first target would definitely be the Magicalize Kingdom.”
”What happened to the alliance…..?”
Chancellor Nachtigal was silent, and Lucia was biting her lip. That’s all I need to know the answer.
“The……alliance was rejected. Al-Assad said he didn’t need magic.”
Perhaps Chancellor Nachtigal had expected this.
I feel more frustrated than disappointed.
“Chancellor Nachtigal, was there ever a girl with a ring in the Fauve Kingdom?”
“Ring bearer?………Oh, there is. There was a young girl tied up in a collar. That scene always makes me want to kill. I knew al-Assad hated people, but to see him go that far is repulsive.”
“………What was she like?”
“What was the girl like?”
My heart starts to beat faster. It might be Mikazuki Shion. I had such a bad premonition.
“……a girl with black hair and black eyes, just like you. I’m sure she’s from another world.”
My heart skipped a beat.
It was now confirmed that I would be going to the Fauve Kingdom. Chancellor Nachtigal saw a girl with black hair and black eyes. Whether or not it was Mikazuki Shion was doubtful, but as long as it was a possibility, I had to confirm it.
“By the way, I heard that this girl is not a……person. I also heard that she defeated Lucia with one blow.”
“Yes, I was defeated by Brünnhilde.”
“Hmmm…..She’s something inhuman, something that doesn’t show any emotion.”
“Oops, did I offend you?”
I stared at Chancellor Nachtigal. Her outburst against Brünnhilde was inexcusable.
Before I could protest, Chancellor Nachtigal said.
“Did you say Sage? I need a favor from you.”
“Please, I need your help.”
Chancellor Nachtigal bowed her head in her chair.
“What do you mean, “help”?”
“This is my prediction, but I expect the Ostrode Kingdom to attack in the near future. The reason why I went to Al-Assad to make an alliance, even though I knew it was unlikely, was to show the Ostrode Kingdom that there was a possibility that we could make an alliance. But no alliance was possible. The problem is that……Al-Assad told other countries that he would never provide support or assistance to the Magicalize Kingdom. If the Ostrode Kingdom hears about this, the chances of them attacking will increase. The king who is called the Demon King is always concerned about his own country. I can’t do anything about it if I’m up against a bunch of cheats from the Ostrode Kingdom.”
“So you’re saying that my students are going to attack this place?”
“Very likely. It would be a fitting first campaign for a group of cheats to take credit for something like the fall of a country.”
“What is the strength of the Magicalize Kingdom……?”
“Knights and magicians, the rest are ordinary soldiers. The magicians are of a high level, but they have never experienced war. The same goes for the knights and soldiers, the Magicalize Kingdom has never experienced war. If they were to be attacked by the Ostrode Kingdom now, they would definitely lose.”
“What do you want from me?”
“I need you to persuade that group of cheats. If you know them, they might listen to you”
Well, that’s a good thing. It’s a chance to talk to the students, a chance to tell them the truth. Besides, if war broke out, the students would be in danger. There was a possibility that they might lose their lives.
There was no way I could say, “Please don’t attack them because they are my students” when the war started.
“……Okay. I’ll help you.”
“No problem. I’ll pay you handsomely. How about a pile of gold and……Lucia?”
“ Chancellor Nachtigal, what are you doing?”
Lucia understood exactly what she meant, and I shuddered at the unexpected premonition. Then Chancellor Nachtigal smiles like a mischievous little girl.
“You can do whatever you want with Lucia’s body until you get tired of it. By the way, she’s a virgin.”
I gush, and Lucia turns red and puckers her mouth. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be doing the male-female thing with Lucia? The sound of gulping caught Lucia’s attention.
“No, Sage, you……! You can’t hurt me!”
“No, no, no! I don’t need it!”
“What do you mean, you don’t need it? Is it so bad that I have no experience at my age?”
“No one said anything about that.”
“What are you laughing at, Chancellor? Hey, Lucia!”
“Shut the f*ck up! Don’t look at me, you idiot!”
It became chaotic at once.
“Chancellor Nachtigal, I have a question about the ruins area.”
“What is it?”
I ignored Lucia’s blush and explained the space I had found in the ruins. I was hoping that there was something key-like that could be passed down to the Magicalize Kingdom.
“Hmmm……sorry, I don’t know.”
“Okay…….So, what about keys, weapons, and ancient texts from the Magicalize Kingdom?”
“I’ve never heard of it, because the results of the survey of the archaeological area showed that it had no historical value. We haven’t done any surveys for several years now.”
The secret of that space isn’t known by the Magicalize Kingdom. No wonder. It only opened the other day. I’m curious about what’s at the end of that passage. It’s like a treasure chest that won’t open.
“Anyway, I will be sending secret agents around the Ostrode Kingdom soon. Until there are signs of war, I want you to stay in this country.”
Then Lucia took the bag she was carrying and put it on the table.
I recognized it because it made a loud clicking sound, it was gold.
“This is an advance for your cooperation. I’ll double it and give you Lucia if you save the Magicalize Kingdom.”
“Wait, Chancellor Nachtigal!”
“We have a deal. Now wait until you hear from me.”
Chancellor Nachtigal stood up and left the house without looking back. Lucia, blushing, hurried after her. I quenched my thirst with a cup of cold tea and asked Brunnhilde, who had not spoken at all.
“Brünnhilde, I knew……the Ostrode Kingdom was a bad country.”
“What do you think will happen now?”
“If the Ostrode Kingdom invades, I will fight to protect you.”
“………Haha, thank you.”
Brünnhilde remained unchanged.
“Sensei, Kutone has been unconscious since the arrival of the guests.”
“Oh……Chancellor Nachtigal came here, she was so shocked. Brünnhilde, carry her to bed.”
Brünnhilde carried Kutone to bed.
I was alone in the living room and exhaled.
“………Now I have to wait. I’ll do what I can.”
It all depends on what the Ostrode Kingdom does. If the students come, I will persuade them. I don’t know if my words will reach them but I have to try.
“……..Let’s investigate those ruins again.”
That white passage, I’ll search that area again, to see if I can find another entrance. It’ll be tough, but I’ll do what I can.
However, things were not so easy.
