Fukushimas Anguish [Part 4]

Fukushimas POV

“Emma is a kind girl who is even called a Holy Maiden in the Kingdom. Ive tried to persuade her many times, but she insists that she wants to help Imperial Japan no matter what.“

“But, what can such a cute… I mean, delicate girl do?!” Even though Imperial Prince Tasuku, who was like a god to us, had phrased it like that, I couldnt just agree to it and say,I see. Then let us hesitate no more! readily.

“According to Prince Edward of the Kingdom, this Lady Emma over here has such exceptional creativity that she has found a way to defeat slimes without having to sacrifice anyone.“

” “What? Slimes?” “

A way to defeat such a strong, horrible, and dreadful monster?!

Moreover, without any sacrifices?

“Such an impossible thing…“

If it was true, wouldnt it be a piece of information any country would like to get their hands on, even if they had to pay a ridiculous amount of money in exchange?!

“Slimes was it? All you have to do is pour a lot of salt on top of it. Its basically the same with slugs… I think we can also defeat it with sugar or flour, but I havent tested it yet, so Im still unsure about its effectiveness… I would like to do comparative research the next time three or more slimes appear at the same time. So salt is the most guaranteed method for now.“

” “Wha-” “

Is it okay to openly say it like that?

No, wait. If three slimes appear all at once, the country could, at worst, get destroyed, you know?

Ishida and I unconsciously raised our voices in astonishment, but it seemed like another person was shocked twice as much as we were.

“N-No way?! Nee-sama! …Sugar and flour are also feasible, you said… Did you know how desperate I was when looking for salt at that time?! If you had asked for sugar, we could have found it much faster, okay!!!” exclaimed William-kun. Hearing the resentment in his voice, I guessed he was the one who ran all over the place for the salt needed to defeat slimes?

“Is it all right to tell us such valuable information?!“

The abacus in Ishidas mind started calculating the value of this piece of information.

“Eh? Isnt it important to share the knowledge of monsters with everyone? I will not be stingy on anything related to the life and death of someone.“

Facing Ishidas question, the girl asked him back, “Is there anything I should hesitate about?” as she tilted her head.

” “…Its the Holy Maiden…” “

The world is vast, indeed.

To think that there was a girl who could dedicate herself this much for the greater good…

For a moment, Ishida and I felt like we were liberated from Over‘s threat and the sorrow of Imperial Japans destruction.

“!!! I will emphasize this, I really am not a h̲o̲r̲n̲y maiden!“

I was even more soothed by how she denied it hastily in humbleness.

This girl right here is a Holy Maiden, moreover an angel.

End of Fukushimas POV

“I-Imperial Prince Tasuku! Please dont ever call me a h̲o̲r̲n̲y maiden!“

“I think you should admit it anytime now, though? Lady Emma?“

“S-So mean!“

The Stuart family, Imperial Prince Tasuku, the Tarous, the ninjas, Fukushima, and Ishida all burst into laughter at this exchange.

That cheerful sound also reached Imperial Japanese citizens who had given up on everything, and it helped them remember the happy feelings they had once forgotten. It made them realize that just because Imperial Japan would perish, it didnt mean that they had to live their days in melancholy.

Smiles had become infectious among many Imperial Japanese people who had evacuated to the north.

Even though she was the one who started all this, Emma, had mixed feelings as she laughed bitterly. 

“…Is this really happening? Am I really being treated as a h̲o̲r̲n̲y girl as soon as I arrive in Imperial Japan?! Eh? No way, right? Wasnt I just grinning a little because Fukushima-sama looks like a cool (used-to-be-wild-but-is-now-calm-and-refined-type-of) old man?!“

The girls complaint was drowned out by everyones laughter.
