1.2 The Matter of I Bring Her Home
The organic object that is lying under the shadow of the big pillar, rather than a goblin, there’s no doubt it’s a female knight. I determine that she’s a female knight instead of a female warrior, because I can feel somewhat elegance air about her, even from a distance.
The good-looking female knight who appears in a story of some hero summoning. This possibility is probable at least.
My chest is beating fast full of expectation, not a tension caused by fear like before.
However, is there really no goblin around?
Speaking of the suspicious place, maybe it’s just an act!? Perhaps that female knight is just a bait? It’s getting more suspicious, but….
“It’s bad for a person to sleep in such cold stone floor. If she is really a human, I need to help her immediately….” (Toru)
You have to help people in need, said my kind-hearted grandma. Moreover, it’s a girl…. she could die if I just leave her alone.
“Okay, let’s muster my courage. Even though I’m just a mob character, I can do this much at least!” (Toru)
I put more power to the pickaxe in my hand while saying so. I advanced cautiously so I wouldn’t miss any sound whatsoever. Occasionally, I made sounds by randomly hitting the floor with my pickaxe, before advanced another one step forward.
I walked close the pillar while checking my surrounding to make sure no goblins appear from the blind spots. Though the female knight didn’t move at all, I could hear a faint sob from her.
I heard a gulping sound and noticed she just swallowed her saliva for some reason.
What does it mean? I mean, why is she crying alone over there?
I pointed the headlight at her few times. I’m thinking of illuminating her face next.
Is she a bait for a trap? Is there any danger around?
All of the exhilaration from a short while ago had vanished and extreme tension engulfed me.
However, if it’s a life-threatening condition, she will be in imminent danger if I don’t hurry.
I finally took one step forward to the shadow of pillar. From time to time I illuminated the wall, ceiling, and floor with my headlight. I advanced carefully while checking all sorts of thing.
I’m really worried with her, but it can’t be helped. It’s 100 times more tense compared to the time I entered that shady real estate agent’s office.
I’m getting pretty close to the female knight, and there’s no doubt that she is a human and not a goblin. There is still a very low possibility that it’s just a disguise, though.
I saw her face which could be called very beautiful. However, her sobbing sound was clearly getting louder than before.
Why is she crying? Moreover, she still doesn’t look at my direction.
The headlight began to illuminate a large room to every nook and corner. This taught me that there was nobody in this place except me and the female knight.
But a few steps beyond the female knight, at the end of the room, there was a stone wall with something such as door which seem to be as strong as my iron door. There was also a stone button-like switch at that door.
Maybe it’s really a trap? Maybe a large number of goblins will come out from that door?
I advanced carefully and slowly. It was the most nerve-wracking action in my whole life. I wondered if my life would be in danger. I picked up a small stone and tried to throw it at the female knight without making any sound.
I was surprised for it to hit the armor on the first attempt
“Hiii… Hiii… Stop it!”
Oh? Japanese? No, it’s different. It wasn’t Japanese. It was a mysterious word which also wasn’t English. But somehow I can understand it as if it’s Japanese language itself.
I thought it was really a trap, but at the same time, the girl in front of me was genuinely frightened and wasn’t acting. There was no much time so I decided to call her.
“H-Hey….. are you all right?” (Toru)
“Please answer me, can you speak in Japanese? I don’t know anything about this strange language” (Toru)
“J-Just leave me alone! Please!”
I became somewhat calm. It was just a little but it was possible to get some information from her. We could communicate using Japanese, even though the female knight was using some strange language. That being said, it seemed the female knight was unable to move from there for some reason.
“I will go over there now.” (Toru)
“I said don’t come!”
“But you couldn’t move, right?” (Toru)
“I can move! I can move!”
“No, you can’t….” (Toru)
It doesn’t look like an act. If it’s really an act, she must be a famous actress. Though I just see her from afar, she is beautiful just like an actress indeed. No, she’s more beautiful than an actress.
I ignored her cries to not get closer and carefully advanced forward.
“I will come to help you.” (Toru)
“Nooo! Stop! Don’t violate me! Please don’t kill me!”
Eh? This female knight just said some strange things.
“What did you say?” (Toru)
“I will do anything from cleaning to washing! Please don’t kill me! Goblin-sama!”
I see. It seems the female knight and myself have the same thought that the other party is a goblin. However, I found out immediately that she is a female knight not a goblin. It’s a sad misunderstanding indeed.
Grandma told me that I was handsome, so please don’t group me together with goblin!
“Oh, is it because of the headlight?” (Toru)
When I think about it carefully, I can see her because of the headlight attached to helmet. But from her side, it will be too dazzling and only my silhouette that can be seen, not my face. In addition, she couldn’t move her neck for some reason.
I removed my helmet. In order for her to take a good look of me, I moved my face right in front of her and pointed the light from the bottom of my face.
She lost her consciousness while twitching her beautiful face.
“That’s rude!” (Toru)
But then I noticed that it was pretty scary to see a face illuminated by the light from the bottom, in such dark place.
“Though she was quite frightened…. She is still alive and kicking.” (Toru)
It seems there is no injury or whatsoever. She is still breathing. That can be seen from her abundant breast movement across the iron plate armor. Based on that, I can assume there is nothing serious with her.
“Now, what? Aah…..” (Toru)
Illuminated by the light from my helmet, I noticed there was some golden liquid flowing out from around her thighs. I didn’t know whether it was because of natural phenomena or it was due to fear to the extent she lost her consciousness….
“It will be dangerous if we remain here. More than anything, this watermark will surely make her embarrassed.” (Toru)
The ambulance wouldn’t come to the dungeon so I decided to carry her to the safety zones, my new home. I hung the pickaxe on my belt and shouldered her.
“Let’s put Knight-san’s arms around my neck…. Okay, I hold your thighs. Ready, heave-ho! Ugh, she is heavy! My hands is full, so I have no choice but to leave her shield behind.”
I grabbed her thighs tightly and returned to my room while staggering. I thought it would be the best moment ever, but her golden water soaked my clothes instead.
“Well it can’t be helped.” (Toru)
