Chapter 90 – Nitra and Lai-nee 5

When I followed Nitra and Lai out of the room, the three members of the territorial army were still waiting for me with dark faces.

“You’re still here?”

“We don’t intend to capture you anymore. We just want to apologize for what happened earlier.”

The person who strangled me took a step forward and kneeled, trembling. It was a sign of a dogeza.

“Please stop.”

“No, Aix-sensei. We want to apologize.”

I didn’t want them to apologize, but they wouldn’t listen to me.

I, as a sorcerer, resorted to the use of force against someone who seemed completely ignorant.

“Ice Ball!”

“Please forgive me! I’m truly sorry. Ugh!”

The Ice Ball I unleashed hit the person, who was in a kneeling position, between his head and the floor, successfully canceling his kneeling.

“Feeling a bit chilled in the head?”

“You won’t let me apologize… will you?”

With a look of despair, the person from the territorial army, who had failed in his attempt to kneel and ended up hitting his head on the floor due to the Ice Ball, looked up at me with a reddened forehead.

“That’s right.”

“I see.”

I spoke to his almost tearful face.

“You indeed went too far. It’s problematic to strangle innocent citizens. However, you did it because you wanted to protect the peace of the citizens, didn’t you?”

“W-Well, that’s true. There’s no lie in that aspect.”

“Then, isn’t it fine? Nothing happened. That’s it.”

“Is… Is that okay?”

Hope is harboured in their expression.

“Yes, please stand up.”

“Thank you.”

I reached out my hand and pulled him up, but he staggered due to the weight difference.

That’s just how I am.

“All the blame lies with the Viscount.”

I concluded, trying to conceal my embarrassment, and bid farewell to the relieved and grateful expressions of the people from the territorial army.

Accompanied by their salutes, I departed towards the food stalls!

If anyone should apologize, it’s actually me.

“Nitra, I’m sorry about earlier. I’ll grill some skewers for you, so please forgive me.”

I spoke to Nitra, who had disappeared into the crowd, but there was no response.

Well, I felt like I saw some movement in the bushes, so I’ll give it one more try. If a polite request doesn’t work, I’ll keep piling up skewers until she agree.

“It’s all you can eat. It’s an all-you-can-eat offer now!”

With her ears moved up and down, I relieved when Nitra appeared from behind the building.

“I’ll eat the skewers until I’m completely satisfied.” (Nitra)

“Sure. Eat as much as you want until you’re satisfied.” (Aix)

“I’m sorry, Nitra. I was wrong. I should have made the effort myself.” (Lai)

I looked at Lai-nee, with a disappointed expression.

Guided by Nitra, who was sniffing and twitching her nose, we headed towards the food stall.

It seems like we’ll be able to eat something incredibly delicious tonight.

“Here!”

I joined the line chosen by the excited Nitra.

Ah, I see. It smells delicious.

My expectations are rising.

Hunger is the best spice, so I wait with a growling stomach. As I do, I can hear various people’s voices, and my ears catch a keyword that piques my interest.

“I wonder if the new barrier is still active? Not a single scrap magic stone dropped today either.”

“That’s why there are so many goblins in the forest. The forest security team should do their job properly.”

Come to think of it, there might not be anyone who can take my place.

But there’s already a preexisting barrier, so it should be fine.

“What’s the matter, Goshujin-sama?”

“Oh, it’s nothing.”

It seems like the line has been moving forward.

I’ll stop thinking about it for now.

While being tugged along by Nitra, we waited for our turn to come.

To cut to the chase, it was delicious.

Moreover, it seemed like my health had recovered, as I was able to devour an entire skewer myself.

Lai-nee had half a skewer, while Nitra managed to devour 2.5 skewers.

I wonder where all that food fits in their bodies. Seeing Nitra with a face covered in sauce and a blissful expression made me feel warm inside.
