Intermission: The Requirements of Companionship

“…Aa…uuu” (Fia)

It’s the morning of the second day after the Fighting Festival ended.

I woke up to the sound of something that rubbed against the bed sheets and was mixed with some charming breathing.

I didn’t do any training until today, in order to recover from the exhaustion, but it seemed that I woke up in the morning like the usual due to habit.

And when I looked to the side, Fia was sleeping with a gentle look.

Since her sleeping face was in a defenseless state, most people would think that it looked cute; but, in the case of Fia, even her sleeping face could be describe as beautiful.

When I saw Fia for the first time, I thought that she was a mysterious and beautiful woman, like a work of art; but even though nearly ten years had passed, she didn’t change at all. Rather than being in love, I thought that she became more beautiful as a woman.

She had such beautiful skin that any women would envy, and lovely flowing hair that would never get stuck, even if you comb it with your fingers. It was said that this was the standard of the Elves, so it might be natural to be targeted.

I was liked by Fia, who was an Elf, and when I realized it, we already became lovers. That’s why I must protect Fia… as a man and as a lover.

Looking at her face while thinking so, Fia slowly opened her eyes. She caught my face and kissed me.

“Yeah… Good morning, Sirius.” (Fia)

“Good morning. You’re passionate this morning, huh?” (Sirius)

“That’s because I saw your face when I woke up…” (Fia)

Fia kept watching my face with a gentle smile while narrowing her eyes.

“Hehe… you’re embarrassed. I never thought that I would be losing my head so much.” (Fia)

“Losing your head? You mean with a man?” (Sirius)

“Yeah. There was a story before I met you…” (Fia)

Prior to meeting me, Fia became acquainted with a child, who was an escort, in a certain town, and she became that person’s drinking buddy.

“Our interests were similar, since we both enjoyed drinking. It was a short time, but I heard a lot of interesting stories. Among them, there was a story of an escort who become too fond of a man.” (Fia)

The escort earnestly fell in love with the man who was her customer, and it seemed that she did everything that he told to do, such as giving him her body and money. However, the man was a low-life and the lady seemed to have been abandoned at the end. It was said that she was losing her head over such a man.

Apparently, this story was propagated to convey a failure’s example, so that the escorts were careful. From the establishment side, it was a story of having a number of their employees decreasing. Hence, the story was proactively disseminated.

“When I heard the story, I was wondering… why would she madly fall in love to that point for that guy, but the current me is completely falling in love with you, right? It is a bit funny, huh?” (Fia)

“I am happy as a man, but is that troubling you, Fia?” (Sirius)

“It’s just that I feel that I would listen to everything you say, if you asked me now. I will give you money, if you ask for it; and if you tell me to embrace you, I will do it without hesitation.” (Fia)

“That’s quite bad. But, if I properly ask in advance, will that be alright?” (Sirius)

“Well, if it is Sirius, I can have a piece of mind and leave it to you. But, if there is something, do not hesitate to say it. It’s not only me. Emilia, Reese, Reus and Hokuto also always think what we want to be used for your sake, so you don’t need to push yourself too much.” (Fia)

Was it… for my sake? She said such a nice thing, but I already had more than enough from everyone.

The reason for the food development was due to the knowledge from my previous life, and my strength in this world was abnormal. If you knew everything, from the view of a person who didn’t know anything, they must’ve been terrified.

But for them to yearn for someone like me, I wasn’t lonely because they were disciples and companions who would follow me, and I could live a fulfilling live.

“I am not forcing myself. Protecting you and our companions completes my life as a human. As I freely live in such a way, I want everyone to do the same. Especially Fia, I want you to openly walk around without hiding your ears.” (Sirius)

“There will be a lot of troubles if the fact about me being an Elf is exposed, you know?” (Fia)

“Don’t worry because I will protect you. Because you are the most attractive when you live the way you like and with your natural smile.” (Sirius)

“…Ooh, you!” (Fia)

When I was thinking about Fia’s sudden shriek, she rode my body and greedily indulged my mouth.

I gently caressed Fia’s back to calm her down, while being surprised with her action. She looked at me with a serious look after she released my face.

“Although I wanted you to say that you won’t force yourself… such pick-up lines are unfair!” (Fia)

“It’s not unfair. I’m just being honest with my feelings.” (Sirius)

“Eeii, shut up! There is still time until breakfast, right!?” (Fia)

“Wait a second, you mean, now?” (Sirius)

“My body is burning, so it can’t be helped, you know? Besides, we Elves have an extremely low probability of having children, so let’s practice it without a moment’s delay.” (Fia)

If I wasn’t mistaken, according to the information… in an Elven village, which was said to have about hundreds of people, there were many women who had only one child after several decades.

Elves were not aggressive in that direction, but it seemed that the sense of crisis could be hardly felt because their sense of time was different from humans and beastkin due to their longevity.

It wasn’t that I didn’t understand what Fia said, but…

“And the truth is…?” (Sirius)

“My feelings are not going to go away. It’s just that I’m falling in love with you, more and more.” (Fia)

“Honestly, it is fine. And, please fall in love as much as you like. I will accept everything.” (Sirius)

“I love that open-mindedness!” (Fia)

After that, I was occupied by Fia until Emilia called.

(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)

“Good morning.” (Reese)

“Good morning, Aniki!” (Reus)

“Woof!” (Hokuto)

As I brought Emilia and Fia, Reese and Reus, who were sitting at the table, gave us morning greetings in the dining room, which was also the bar of the inn. Hokuto, who was sitting on the floor, greeted me as well.

“Good morning. Sorry, it seems that I made you wait.” (Sirius)

“N-no… the timing is good since there is no morning training.” (Reese)

“Say, Aniki, what’s with Nee-chan and Fia-ane?” (Reus)

When looking at Emilia, who was hugging my arm, and Fia, who had an unusually bright expression, their puzzled faces might be natural.

“I just cleared things up with Sirius. Reus, you must also become a good man to satisfy a woman like Sirius does.” (Fia)

“Of course! I am aiming to be like Aniki, you know?” (Reus)

“Yeah. But, you have your own merit, so do your best by making use of it.” (Fia)

“Ouu!” (Reus)

When I tried to take a seat, while listening to the conversation between Reus and Fia, Emilia left my arm and pulled a chair out. It looked like she was trying to put her smell on me because she didn’t want to lose against Fia, but she didn’t forget her duty as an attendant, after all.

And with everyone in front of the breakfast that was arranged on the table, everyone’s eyes gathered onto me. It was because the meal wouldn’t start without my signal.

“Well, itadakimasu.” (Sirius)

““““Itadakimasu.”””” (Emilia/Reese/Fia/Reus)

Fia, who easily adapted to our ways during the last few days, also held her hands together in prayer, and then, breakfast began.

There were salads with bread and soup, and the breakfast seemed heavy, since there were roasted meats, but there was no problem with that in our case.

Rather…

“Another, please.” (Reese)

“Me too, another, please!” (Reus)

“Sirius-sama, will you have a little more salad?” (Emilia)

“Aah, alright. Emilia, also, eat it without reserve.” (Sirius)

“…I wonder if the secret of getting stronger is having proper meals?” (Fia)

The amount was not enough.

As soon as the dishes that filled the whole table went into everyone’s stomachs, another helping had been brought out.

“Yes, I brought extra food and other helpings and services.” (Cecil)

“Sorry for making you come and go so many times.” (Sirius)

“Since the number of customers has increased because of Onii-chans, it’s fine. We have a lot of provisions, so eat to your heart’s content.” (Kachia)

Looking at the surroundings, the tables at the bar were almost filled with people. Kachia and the employees were busy and happily serving the customers.

Clearly, the number of customers had increased more than when we first stayed here. And that would be the case, since I advertised them when I won the Fighting Festival. The announcement was spread by word-of-mouth, and it showed a magnificent change in only two days.

From the beginning, the condition of the place wasn’t even bad, and it was a fine inn with excellent services to guests. The rooms were occupied for several days and it wasn’t a dream.

As the number of customers increased, I thought that I should bring my Beast Companion, Hokuto, out, but he was allowed for a special reason. There were complaints from some customers, but when I told them that I, as the Champion of the Fighting Festival, was the owner, and because of Hokuto’s politeness, they were able to somehow accept it.

Then, after breakfast, I decided to discuss today’s schedule, while having some after-meal tea and dessert fruits.

“My and Reus’ injuries have considerably healed, so I think that I will go the Adventurer’s Guild today.” (Sirius)

“Eh!? Perhaps you don’t want to turn the prize money from the Fighting Festival into food expenses, right!? I don’t want the side dishes to be reduced!” (Reese)

“We will hunt monsters!” (Reus)

“Calm down, you guys. Actually, a letter came.” (Sirius)

Calming the gluttonous siblings in the house, I took out the letter that was given to me by Cecil-san’s husband at the reception before I came here. I put it in the center of the table and showed it to everyone.

They seemed to have been entrusted with it this morning, but I simply told them that I need to show my face at the Adventurer’s Guild.

“What kind of business does the Guild employees have with us?” (Emilia)

“During the Award Ceremony of the Fighting Festival, apparently my Beginner Guild Rank is a problem. According to them, since the Champion of the Fighting Festival is a Beginner Rank, the Adventurer’s Guild seemed to have been making light of me, so they would like to discuss it once.” (Sirius)

Currently, my Guild Rank was Eighth Rank, and, in this world’s standards, I was generally known as a Beginner Adventurer.

Emilia and Reese were similar to me. Reus was at the Seventh Rank because he defeated a monster during his spare time, but… his rank was also at the beginner’s level.

In terms of ability, I thought that we could aim for a higher rank, but since we were not having trouble with money, due to the income from the Galgan Company, we hadn’t shown our faces at the Adventurer’s Guild and barely did any requests.

“If it is Sirius-sama, getting the First Rank is easy. Certainly, let’s have you attain First Rank.” (Emilia)

“Yo-you can’t. We have to properly accept requests and Rank Up.” (Reese)

“Reese is right. To be honest, I am not very interested in the Guild Ranking, but they specifically called for me through the letter. So, I’ll show my face.” (Sirius)

There were various reasons for registering with the Guild, but the most important thing was to have proof of identification.

Even as a joke, I didn’t think that it would be good to be surrounded by enemies because I was the Champion of the Fighting Festival, so I decided to go, since it would be troublesome later.

“Since Fia-ane was traveling, are you in the Guild?” (Reus)

“Yes, of course. I had… to earn travel expenses. This is my Guild Card.” (Fia)

The Guild Card that Fia took out from her pocket was engraved with the Fifth Rank and the material was silver. So, she was an Intermediate Adventurer.

“If I aggressively do the requests, I might be able to go further up, but I was fine if I earned at least the minimum. Besides, since I am an Elf, I don’t like the rank going up and becoming conspicuous.” (Fia)

If it was Fia, who could use Spirit spells, she probably could Rank Up by defeating strong monsters alone.

When she was alone, she accepted the requests while covered with a hood, but if her rank climbed up and she became conspicuous, some fools would appear and try to figure out her identity, so it was a good idea to stop at Fifth Rank.

“Well then, let’s go to the Guild when the preparations are done. We might receive a request, so don’t forget to prepare.” (Sirius)

“Understood. I will arrange the necessities.” (Emilia)

“If it’s about ranking up, it’s not good if we are not working for it, you know? Aah, Kachia-chan. Can I have more of these fruits, please?” (Reese)

“Me too!” (Reus)

“You’re going to eat even more!?” (Kachia)

“Hehe, they eat a lot.” (Fia)

Because those two were perfectly synced, Kachia and other adventurers, who were looking at us, were surprised. Emilia and I were already used to it. Same goes for Fia. She happily looked at their eating habits.

While looking at Reese and Reus, who were joyfully eating the fruits, I recalculated the food expenses in my head.

(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)

We headed to the Adventurer’s Guild after finishing the preparations, but we were, understandably, standing out along the way there.

With the first runner-up of the Fighting Festival, Hundred Wolves, Hokuto; and an Elf, Fia; it was natural to be conspicuous. By the way, Fia was walking with us with her hood removed and was boldly exposing her real face.

Most of the gazes that were directed towards us from the surroundings were favorable, and we received skewered meats from a person, who opened a food stall, and he told us that it was a splendid fight.

While there were evil gazes, which included the jealous and schemers, they ran away when Hokuto and I stared at them. It needed a bit of practice; it was a skill of releasing bloodlust with pinpoint accuracy in order to let them notice and understand it.

“Woof!” (Hokuto)

“Aah, he said take your time, he will wait.” (Emilia)

We walked through the boisterous town and arrived at the Adventurer’s Guild. If there was something, Hokuto would bark to call me. And then, he led down in an area for Beast Companions.

Because it was called the Capital of Adventurers, when I entered the large building, it was noisy with a large number of adventurers accepting requests and having discussions.

When we entered the building, all eyes were set on us, unlike when we’re in the town.

Most of them were looking at Fia and had lewd looks, but they were sighing as if they had given up when they saw her with me and Reus.  Perhaps they had seen the Fighting Festival and decided that they were no match. These people were worthy to be adventurers, because, if they couldn’t sense danger, it wouldn’t have enough lives, no matter how much they had. When thinking about that, these adventurers were probably good quality adventurers.

Since it was fine if we didn’t get entangled with them, we were at the end of the queue where adventurers were lining-up before the reception of the Guild, and…

“Aah!? So, you have come, Sirius-kun! Can you come here, since I am in a hurry?” (??)

When we turned our faces towards the loud voice behind the reception, we saw the woman who did the live coverage of the Fighting Festival.

I wondered… why she was here, but when she appeared in the state of having the same attire as the other receptionist, apparently she was an employee here.

When it turned out to be her, Emilia and Reese immediately stood up in front of me, while Fia embraced my arm. Since Fia was smiling, she probably just wanted to embrace my arm.

Of course, the adventurers, who were watching from afar, looked envious, but I unconcernedly stroke Emilia’s and Reese’s heads to calm them down.

“Calm down. Come on, let’s go, since she is calling.” (Sirius)

“Let’s do this. Since I will be at the rear, two people should be on both sides.” (Fia)

““Yes.”” (Emilia/Reese)

“Then, I’m in the front!” (Reus)

Thus, I headed to the reception while surrounded by everyone; Emilia and Reese were on both sides of me, Fia at my back and Reus at the front.

What’s with this situation? …When I thought about that, they were concerned about me, so it was difficult to stop them.

“Wha-what’s with this perfect arrangement!? There is no gap for me to enter with this!” (Announcer)

“The enemies of Nee-chans are my enemies! I will not let you touch Aniki!” (Reus)

“But, the lovers have gone from three to four!? As expected of a person who ruled the Fighting Festival. A profound chest that accepts all, even if it is a man, is also wonderful!” (Announcer)

“Wait a sec, Reus is just a disciple.” (Sirius)

“Wait, Aniki! We are not just disciples. In the future, we will… muguhh!?” (Reus)

Since Reus started to loudly emphasize his words, I threw a candy that was recently made into his mouth and made him shut up. Reus, who was absorbed in the sweetness that had a touch of honey, concentrated on licking it and became quiet.

Emilia and Reese on either side of me turned around with a gluttonous look, so it went without saying that I put them into their mouths as well.

“Ehemm! More importantly, I came here because I received the letter.” (Sirius)

“Oh, that’s right! Sorry, please wait a minute. I will immediately contact the higher-ups.” (Announcer)

That woman asked another woman, who was working at the reception to contact the higher-ups, and then she asked us to show our Guild Cards.

“For the time being, let me confirm your rank. Aah, I’m sorry, my name is Beauty(1). If it is strong man, I will always welcome them anytime.” (Beauty)

I clearly disregard the gaze aimed at me and Reus, and we handed our Guild Cards to Beauty. And after she confirmed them all, she took a deep breath while covering her face with her hands.

“…Even though you have strength to that degree, you really were a Beginner.” (Beauty)

“I’m not really interested in ranking. So, did you call us to raise our ranks?” (Sirius)

“I also haven’t heard it in detail, but it is probably related. By the way, when you said that you weren’t interested, do you know the rank classifications?” (Beauty)

“Well…” (Sirius)

The Guild Rank started from the Tenth Rank. Every time the rank was raised by doing requests, the rank number would decrease, and the First Rank was the highest.

When the rank went up, it became possible to receive requests with higher difficulties and rewards, and what you were considered as would changed too.

A Beginner Adventurer was from the Tenth to the Seventh Rank.

An Intermediate Adventurer was from the Sixth to the Fourth Rank.

An Advanced Adventurer was from the Third to the First Rank.

According to rumors, it seemed that there was a Special Rank that was higher than the First Rank, but since I wasn’t interested beyond that, I had no plan to look into it.

“If that’s the case, there is no need for an explanation. The full briefing will be given by the Guild Master, so will you follow me?” (Beauty)

“Can my companions come too?” (Sirius)

“There’s no problem.” (Beauty)

Since the woman, who was asked to make contact some time ago, returned, we were taken to a room by Beauty.

We were led to a room, which could be used for a conference, with a big table inside.

On the opposite side of that table, there was a big, built man with muscles forged to the extent that they wouldn’t lose to Lior-Jiisan’s and his head was completely shaven. Having a large scar on the face, this man had an air that was unlike that of ordinary people, so he could be…

“Let me do the introductions. Here is Badom-sama(2), the Guild Master of the Adventurer’s Guild, Garaff branch.” (Beauty)

“I am Badom. Nice to meet you, Sirius-kun, the Champion of the Fighting Festival.” (Badom)

I responded since he got up for a handshake, but the moment our hands connected… Badom quietly smiled.

When I noticed that Badom wasn’t an ordinary person, it seemed that the other side also noticed my ability. This Guild Master seemed to be a strong person who could measure a part of one’s ability, even by connecting hands.

“…I see, if it’s you, it’s probably normal to win. For a person to be strong to this degree, while being hidden… the world is really interesting.” (Badom)

After that, he shook hands with Reus, and he was nodding several times with great interest.

“Are you Sirius-kun’s disciple?” (Badom)

“Yes, I am. I am Aniki’s first—… No, I am his second disciple!” (Reus)

“I see. You are also a wonderful raw stone. I am really looking forward to the future.” (Badom)

Badom was happily laughing due to Reus, who immediately corrected himself because of Emilia’s silent pressure.

Whether Reus instinctively understood that he was a strong person, his tone was unusually polite.

After that, he continued with Emilia and Reese. He returned to the seat after shaking hands with the last person, Fia. He, then, signaled us to take a seat.

“Nevertheless, you guys are very interesting. It’s hard to think that you guys are Beginner Adventurers, since you’ve trained that youth to that extent, and are together with a rare Elf and Hundred Wolves, which is also regarded as a myth.” (Badom)

“It is necessary to live. Plus, Fia and Hokuto are my important companions. Anyhow, why did call for us?” (Sirius)

“Hmmm. I think that you already understand. This is about raising Sirius-kun and Reus-kun’s rank. As I wrote in the letter, annoying people will appear if the one who won the Fighting Festival is a Beginner.” (Badom)

“Is that so? Since it is hard to raise it too much, Intermediate Sixth Rank should be enough.” (Sirius)

“…Normally, people are obsessed with raising their rank, but it seems that you are not really interested.” (Badom)

Badom was smiling while drinking the tea prepared by Beauty. He was probably thinking that, if it was me, I could rank up to Advanced Adventurer.

“I was planning to slowly raise my rank. Leaving that matter aside, I am giving priority to training my disciples and traveling around the world.” (Sirius)

“An adventurer is someone who lives the way they want. Because of that, I didn’t want to call Sirius-kun, unless I asked to, but when you won the Fighting Festival, it is something that I couldn’t ignore, after all. As a representative of the Guild, let me apologize.” (Badom)

“It’s fine because I also understand the situation here. So, what should I do?” (Sirius)

“We already prepared the request, so if you accomplish that, I will rank you guys up to the Intermediate Rank. Please ask Beauty for more information.” (Badom)

“Uhmm… will that be alright for us as his disciples?” (Emilia)

“It’s alright. I got the gist of your ability when I shook your hands earlier. I also feel that your mana exceeds that of ordinary people, so you might be able to do it if it is at the Intermediate level.” (Badom)

Personally, Badom was thinking about the Advanced level, but the surroundings would make noise if we were given special treatment to that extent, and to rank up to the Third Rank, it would be pointless, unless we received a special request while accompanied by the Guild Officials, so he gave up.

I disliked that above all. Hence, if we fulfilled the request, we would all rank up to the Sixth Rank, except Fia.

When I was considering that it might be a Subjugation Request, Emilia, who was next to me, raised her hand to ask questions.

“I’m sorry. I would like to ask a question, is it true that there is a Special Rank that is higher than the First Rank?” (Emilia)

“There is certainly a Special Rank. What is it, do you want to be a Special Rank?” (Badom)

“No, it’s not me. It’s Sirius-sama. If it is Sirius-sama, it seems that he would have no problem, even if it is the Special Rank.” (Emilia)

“Oi, don’t try to recommend me without my permission.” (Sirius)

“Hahaha, it is true that Sirius-kun, who won the Fighting Festival, is strong, but the Special Rank is not all about ability. Although that person was not interested in anything other than swords, the Special Rank was impossible for even the Strongest Sword, Lior.” (Badom)

It was said that only one person got that Special Rank in the last few decades, and that person was like a specialist in everything.

Someone who lead others by teaching various skills. It seemed that it was necessary to know everything about the underworld, and make callous decisions and calm judgments.

“Furthermore, if you have the ability to make the Adventurer’s Guilds from each continent deem you acceptable, then you have enough requirements for the Special Rank. Aah, if you can defeat the Strongest Sword, Lior, no one will complain, maybe. Well, I guess that there is no one like that, hahaha!” (Badom)

Badom was laughing, but I felt that I had met those requirements.

However, since I thought that it would be boring to suddenly become an Advanced or Special Rank, I would give a proper answer and keep silent about it.

“If that’s the case, Sirius-sama… muguhh!?” (Emilia)

It was close, but the candy was in time.

(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)

And then, we parted with Badom. After listening to the details of the request from Beauty, we were led by Hokuto to a nearby forest.

By the way, it didn’t take more than half a day by walking. Hence, we left the carriage at the inn and went on foot.

Getting off the highway, we kept walking in the wide meadows, while thinking about the details of the request.

“The details of the request are to subjugate a group of Orcs, right? I wonder how many there are?” (Reese)

“According to Beauty, she said that there were about ten, but we must assume that there are more than that.” (Emilia)

“That’s for sure, Nee-chan. No matter who your opponent is, never let your guard down. Always remember the worst case scenario, right?” (Reus)

“…I was going to give advice, if there was something, but I guess it is not necessary.” (Fia)

Orcs were a kind of monster that looked like giant pigs walking on two legs.

Their intelligence was low, but the size and strength of their bodies were twice that of a person. They were, omnivores, since it ate everything. The thick fat stored in the body prevented swords and blows, so it was impossible with half-hearted attacks. Roughly speaking, it was twice as strong as a goblin.

It was also the limit of the Beginner Rank, and if you could defeat a single one of them alone, you had enough ability as an Intermediate Rank.

“By the way, why doesn’t Sirius want to become a Special Rank? According to the Guild Master’s explanation, you can become one, right?” (Fia)

“That’s right. Since Sirius-sama has beaten Lior-Ojiichan, I think that it is proper to have that Special Rank.” (Emilia)

“Yeah, I also think the same, but Sirius-san doesn’t like to stand out, unless it is necessary. During the Fighting Festival, it was for Fia-san’s sake.” (Reese)

“It is as Reese says, to attain the Special Rank is to be on the top.” (Sirius)

If you attained the Special Rank, there would be many instances that you could save time and labor by having various conveniences.

However, raising ranks of one level or two was alright for this time, but it was originally difficult to rank up. Hence, if our ranks were risen in one go, it would only invite animosity.

“If you stand on top, you will see a lot of things, but there are things that can only be seen at the bottom. It is alright if it becomes a necessity to rank up to Advanced or Special Rank, but for now, we should take it easy.” (Sirius)

“So you had that kind of thought, huh? I’m sorry. I was being impertinent.” (Fia)

“Wasn’t that for my sake? Don’t worry. Besides, please don’t hesitate to say if you have anything to complain about. In the worst case scenario, we could hide when the situation can’t be undone, or stockpile stuff.” (Sirius)

“Well, recently, I haven’t eaten Aniki’s dishes, so I want to eat more. Later, I want to play Frisbee.” (Reus)

“Cecil-san’s dishes are also good, but I like Sirius-sama’s dishes the best.” (Emilia)

“I think so, too.” (Reese)

“Woof!” (Hokuto)

“You mean, here!? Well, that’s why I prepared this bento, you know?” (Sirius)

In the beginning, I headed out to the town to buy lunches, but since the disciples told me that they wanted to eat my dishes, I came back to the inn and made a bento.

Thanks to that, it was just before noon, but our walking speed was faster than others, and we had plenty of time, if it was just to go there and come back. Although this was a request, it completely felt like a picnic.

Other than that, they wanted to be stroked and brushed, and since I was doing it almost every day, their discontent seemed to be piling up.

As we walked with a piece of mind, Fia came beside me and put her hands on my shoulders.

“Hehe… Okaa-san has it tough.” (Fia)

“I am a guy, so it’s Otou-san.” (Sirius)

“That is true. And the skill to please a woman is something that a splendid man has.” (Fia)

“There is a man over there.” (Sirius)

“It’s a joke.” (Fia)

Fia wasn’t emitting malicious intent, she was laughing while sticking her tongue out, so I decided to concentrate on walking without saying anything.

We, then, continued walking in the meadow, and we finally decided to have lunch at the point where the forest could be seen.

After that, I discussed the arrangements, while eating the bento with the assistance of Emilia and Reese.

“The Orcs are in the depths of the forest, right? After eating this, I’ll charge into the depths of the forest!” (Reus)

“No, we are not planning to enter the forest. Right now, rather than the request, I have something to confirm.” (Sirius)

“We’re not going to enter? Well then, what are we going to do, Aniki?” (Reus)

“I’ve got a plan concerning the Orcs, but for now, we will give priority to this.” (Sirius)

She ate these when we met for the first time. When I looked at Fia, who was eating sandwiches with meat and vegetables, it seemed nostalgic, and then she tilted her head and looked at me.

“What is it? Aah, you want to eat this? Here, open your mouth.” (Fia)

“That’s not it. It’s fine to listen while eating. Once Fia has finished eating, I would like you to tell me about your ability.” (Sirius)

“My ability?” (Fia)

If we were going to be on a trip from now on, I should understand, in detail, the abilities of my companions.

I had been thinking about this since the day we became friends, but since there was a possibility of Fia’s Spirit spells being leaked out if she showed them in the town, I had been holding back until now.

However, since we left the town for a request this time, now was the best opportunity to explain it to everyone.

“There is no one following us, and I can’t feel any reactions from the surroundings at the moment. I’m leaving the lookout to Hokuto, so let’s confirm everyone’s abilities now.” (Sirius)

“Alright… it is necessary, since we have become companions. Sorry, I didn’t notice it since I had always been traveling alone.” (Fia)

Although Fia said it while smiling, I was sad when I heard that. Since she seemed to be enjoying the trip, perhaps, not regretting might be the only salvation.

“The companions who I can rely on, right? Well then, I’m going to show my Spirit spells.” (Fia)

“Yes, as a Junior in Spirit spells, I will also take them as references.” (Reese)

“Rather than offensive, Reese-ane is more in protection and healing. I’m looking forward to seeing how Fia-ane will use it.” (Reus)

“Uuh… I’m nervous when I am looked at with such pure eyes.” (Fia)

Fia was feeling pressure by the pure eyes of the gluttonous siblings in the house.

Meanwhile, I was concerned about Emilia, who had a similar Wind attribute as Fia, but she was pouring tea from a water kettle into a cup and handed it to me.

“Here you go, Sirius-sama. Umm… is there something on my face?” (Emilia)

“Aah, no. since Emilia and Fia use the same Wind spells, I was thinking whether you are concerned about it, or not.” (Sirius)

“I am, but other than magic, there are many things that can become strength. If it I can assist Sirius-sama, it is good enough, then.” (Emilia)

Although she wasn’t trained by me, maybe Fia was stronger in terms of Wind spells.

However, Emilia should be better in terms of physical ability and abilities as an attendant. She understood that. It warmed my heart when she smiled without even feeling jealousy.

“Really… you have grown up, Emilia.” (Sirius)

“No, it’s still too early. As long as Sirius-sama watches over me, I will continue to grow.” (Emilia)

When I stroked Emilia, who had a bigger heart than her body, she closed her eyes while happily wagging her tail.

“Ehehe… So happy.” (Emilia)

“Yeah. Even if I win over Emilia in terms of magic, I still lose in many ways. I have to work hard as your lover. By the way, Sirius…” (Fia)

“Yes?” (Sirius)

“I want you to eat this after all, so please, open your mouth. Here, ahn.” (Fia)

“…Ahn.” (Sirius)

After the meal was over, we showed off our abilities.

There were also Spirit magicians, and since they would cause natural disasters if they went all out, so some of it was explained verbally.

My gun spells, and Reus’ sword techniques. The sharpness of Emilia’s Wind blades, and the wall utilized by Reese’s Water. Fia praised by clapping her hands while being surprised.

“You guys are stronger than I imagined. When I was traveling, I didn’t see anyone as strong as you guys.” (Fia)

“That’s thanks to Aniki’s training.” (Reus)

“That is the result of you guys continuing to work hard. I am just giving you the opportunity.” (Sirius)

“Whether or not it was an opportunity, I believe that you can be proud, since they trust you. Well then, it’s my turn.” (Fia)

Fia came forward. She turned her hand towards the meadow where no one was located, and quietly muttered.

“Lend me your power. Oh wind…” (Fia)

Fia’s mana was released at the same moment with her chanting, and a big tornado occurred in the distance.

The force of the tornado was to the extent that if it hadn’t been reduced, it would’ve been dreadful. Far from involving people, it even pulled the trees growing out of the ground.

After Fia confirmed that she had shown enough, she waved her hand and the tornado disappeared, almost as if something of that degree never existed. However, since the ground was deeply gouged out, it firmly showed the power of the tornado.

“Fuh… I was a bit excited. I can’t control it if I make it stronger than that, and it will indiscriminately mow down a wide area.” (Fia)

“Still, it’s amazing! Nee-chan, can you do that?” (Reus)

“If only a bit. However, if it’s me, I’ll run out of mana first.” (Emilia)

“Emilia and Fia’s styles are in different directions. You don’t have to do the same thing, you know?” (Sirius)

Fia’s Spirit magic was a style that blows everything  away with a powerful Wind, while Emilia had a style to slice things by completely controlling the wind.

After that, she released several spells, and the last one was the spell to fly in the sky, which I had taught her.

“…How was it? Since I couldn’t get out of my hometown until now, I practiced every day to kill time.” (Fia)

“It was splendid. You reproduced the spell that I taught like a joke, and the way you fly in the sky is incomparable to the old days.” (Sirius)

“Thank you. But, flying in the sky is not just this. There is a time limit, but I am able to make someone float, if it’s just one person.” (Fia)

“In other words, I can also fly like Fia-ane?” (Reus)

“Yeah. I’ll skip the explanations, so come here. Aah, because the control is difficult, don’t move too much.” (Fia)

When the invited Reus came forward, his body floated as the wind blew. He flew around with Fia as the center, and he slowly got down onto the ground.

“That was amazing, Fia-ane! But, I can’t do anything while flying.” (Reus)

“Since you are floating because of my Wind, it is natural that you can’t step on it. You can block enemies’ movement to a certain extent, but you will be dropped if you move too much.” (Fia)

“If that’s the case, the main function is only for movement, right? Nevertheless, it is amazing.” (Sirius)

“Thank you. As a test sample, my friend from my hometown——… no, I was able to do it because I receive their cooperation. I was finally able to show it to Sirius, and my hardship went well.” (Fia)

“Aah, I think you can feel proud of yourself.” (Sirius)

Fia was smiling, but I don’t think she would have reached this far without great effort.

I smiled while praising Fia’s effort.

Incidentally, after confirming everyone’s strength, we started the Orc Subjugation request. Reus turned his face to me, while looking at the inclination of the sun.

“Hey, Aniki. If we search for the Orcs and exterminate them now, it is going to be night when we head home, right?” (Reus)

“There is no need to search. Hokuto!” (Sirius)

“Woof!” (Hokuto)

As I skipped the explanations, Hokuto charged into the forest with a bullet-like momentum.

My companions were puzzled, but I told them to prepare for battle.

I confirmed it earlier with [Search], and I sensed the reaction of the Orc group in the depths of the forest. And if I could sense them, obviously, Hokuto could sense them too.

In other words…

“Awoooo——!” (Hokuto)

Instead of searching, it would be better if they came to us.

Hokuto disappeared into the forest and, after a while, I noticed a group of Orcs running towards us because they were driven away by Hokuto.

When we lived together in the back of a mountain in my previous life, we often went hunting together. The way we hunted was Hokuto would chase the prey, and I would make a surprise attack after luring it out, it was nostalgic.

“Their number is… 15. This will serve as a training in coordination. So, let’s fight.” (Sirius)

“First off, let me reduce the number with my Wind. I can probably reduce them by half.” (Fia)

“I will charge afterwards!” (Reus)

“I will aim for the enemies, other than Reus’.” (Emilia)

“Then, I will aim for the opponent that’s trying to leave.” (Reese)

“I’ll move according to the situation.” (Sirius)

Even if we fought alone with the current Orcs, we should have no problems. As a practice platform for coordination this time, we decided to annihilate them in one go.

Nearly half were crushed to death by Fia’s Spirit spells, which brought the pressure of the Wind from above them. The remaining Orcs were cut in half by Reus’ sword and Emilia’s Wind spell, and the Orcs that tried to escape were shot with Reese’s balls of Water, and brought down by Hokuto’s forefoot, who had caught up.

The Orcs were completely annihilated, and we quickly removed the tusks of the Orcs, which would be the proof of the subjugation.

Later, when they receive this, the request would be completed.

“Well then, shall we head back?” (Sirius)

“To be this easy…” (Fia)

“If Sirius-sama says it’s good, then it’s good.” (Emilia)

In addition, they were exterminated by Hokuto’s hand, and I thought that it was still too early to confirm their coordination from this fight.

We came here for the request, but since the main reason was to let them verify their companions’ abilities, there wasn’t any resistance, since it was easily finished.

On the way back to the town after annihilating the Orcs, I stopped and called Reus.

“Reus. I forgot something that I needed to hand over. Accept this.” (Sirius)

“Alright… What is this?” (Reus)

What I handed over was a medallion engraved with the mark of a sword.

Reus was puzzled at first, but it seemed that he noticed it from the engraved sword mark.

“This is… Lior-Jiichan’s sword? Aniki, could this be…” (Reus)

“Aah, it is as you guessed. According to Jii-san, it is proof of mastering his techniques.” (Sirius)

A few years ago, it was given that just before leaving Lior-Jiisan. He requested me to hand it over to Reus, if Reus became a swordsman based on my opinion.

And during the Fighting Festival the other day, Reus had shown more power than I had expected. I guessed that he had more than enough qualifications to receive it.

“You are also a splendid swordsman. Work hard from now on, alright?” (Sirius)

“Aniki… Leave it to me! I will absolutely beat Jii-chan, wait for me until I can catch up to you!” (Reus)

While crying a little, Reus was delightedly clenched the medallion.

…But, it was still too early to be deeply moved.

This medallion was like a license or something. That was what he said, but in reality…

“If you show this to him, perhaps Jii-san will seriously attack you. He will swing his sword while unleashing a bloodlust similar to what I did the other day.” (Sirius)

“…Eh!?” (Reus)

In other words, this was that Jii-san’s limiter release device.

To be brief… you should be able to fight that Jii-san, even if he went all out.

Reus, who understood that, held his head while overcome with surprise.

“Say… Aniki? Based on me in the past, how strong was Jii-chan when he seriously fought?” (Reus)

“It was a quarter of him. And since I am not sure how strong he became during the past few years, it might be useless to think about it.” (Sirius)

“Oo…ooh…” (Reus)

The memories of being viciously beaten up might be surfacing. And, unlike me, that Jii-san was bad about going easy on someone. You might unexpectedly get killed… and it wasn’t strange talk.

Since Reus was noticeably trembling, I stroked his head to calm him down.

“Well… I think that it is scary, but you have also grown up. Let’s keep working hard to get stronger to achieve your target earlier.” (Sirius)

“Go-got it! I am not scared if I am together with Aniki!” (Reus)

Although Reus said that, it was completely understood that he was scared, since his tail was hanging down.

I wasn’t sure how strong that Jii-san would be when we meet again. So, it was painful, since I also couldn’t easily say that it would be fine. By some chance, his strength might have dropped because of his age, but it seemed that was impossible for that Jii-san.

Whatever happens, to prepare for that time, I decided to review the training checklist so that Reus wouldn’t be killed.

After that, we completed the Orc Subjugation request and our rank became Sixth rRank.

We got a silver Guild Card, which was also proof of an Intermediate Adventurer. While smiling with the disciples, Beauty, who handed me the card, clapped her hands to celebrate us.

“Congratulations. With this, Sirius-kun and the rest have become Intermediate Adventurers, and you will be able to receive requests at the Intermediate level.” (Beauty)

“Thank you very much. By the way, what kind of requests are there at the Intermediate level?” (Sirius)

“Well, subjugation of monsters that are not able to be dealt with the Beginners, harvesting at particular places, and the number of unique requests will multiply. Although it is rare, there are also nominations requested by the clients.” (Beauty)

“In regards to the nomination, does that mean that the name is well-known?” (Sirius)

“Yeah. This is without delay, but there is a nomination request that came for Sirius-kun. This is the written request.” (Beauty)

“So sudden, huh? Let see…” (Sirius)

{Nomination for Sirius. It is a request to go out on date with the staff receptionist, Beauty. After that, take her back to the inn…}

““Eeii!”” (Emilia/Reese)

“Wha!?” (Beauty)

The written request filled with private affairs was torn up by the hands of Emilia and Reese.

Extra/Bonus

The conversation with the Guild Master, Badom, after the subjugation of the Orcs.

“Yes. Actually, I am also managing the Fighting Festival. There was something I would like to ask from the Champion, Sirius-kun.” (Badom)

“What is it?” (Sirius)

“There is a statue of the Strongest Sword at the entrance of the arena, right? There, your—…” (Badom)

“I don’t need it.” (Sirius)

“No, listen to me until the end—…” (Badom)

“I don’t need a stone statue. I will destroy it, if you make it.” (Sirius)

Would you endure to make it?

“Well then, how about Reus? As the first runner-up, you have received the basics from the Strongest Sword, and I think that the arrangement is not bad.” (Badom)

“If it is with Aniki, then it’s fine, but I don’t want it to be with the Strongest Sword, Jii-chan.” (Reus)

“…” (Badom)

“It’s pointless to look at me with such eyes. I refuse.” (Reus)

The stone statue-making was cancelled, after all.

Although I got the overall victory, a stone statue of mine would possess no brand of power, unlike that Jii-chan’s, and I wonder who would benefit from it?

“With Sirius-sama’s stone statue… it seems that I will unintentionally embrace when it is completed.” (Emilia)

There would be a person who would do it with her whole body…

Attention… Please read this while imagining the trailer of a movie. (Author)

That… was the beginning of the brushing.

“Found it! I was looking for a human who can brush like you!” (??)

It was a group called the Dark Fluffy Empire, which suddenly appeared in front of Hokuto and friends, and his Master, Sirius, was kidnapped.

In an effort to rescue their dear Master, Hokuto and friends… an animal and four people, marched into the hideout of the Dark Fluffy Empire.

“I will not permit that there is such a feast. Hokuto, I will immediately chase after you after I eat this, so go ahead!” (Reese)

“There is also alcohol. I will follow you guys later.” (Fia)

Due to a sneaky trap by the Dark Fluffy Empire, the companions fell one after another.

At that time, Hokuto’s Master, who got kidnapped, was subjected to a terrible treatment by the Dark Fluffy Empire.

<Nyaa!> (??)

<Woof!> (??)

<Woof(3)!> (??)

“Yes, yes, go line up. Aah, your fur is bad. Today’s dinner is with vegetables as the main ingredient.” (Sirius)

In front of Hokuto and friends, who were grieving over their sacrificed friends, there were Four Heavenly Kings of the Dark Fluffy Empire who stood up.

“So, you came. I am the top of the Four Heavenly Kings, Golden Retriever.” (??)

“Is it already the Four Heavenly Kings? What about the other three?” (Emilia)

“The other three were engrossed with the brushing of the man who is your Master, so they won’t come out from the room. Anyhow, let’s fight and end this soon. Because I will also get the brushing!” (??)

“Kuhh… do you think that you can surpass the fluffiness of my tail!?” (Emilia)

“Don’t make light of the fluffiness power of mine!” (Reus)

Hokuto also went forward to help them, but he was stopped by Emilia’s hand.

“Please leave this to us. We will beat this Retriever, and then, we will immediately chase after you!” (Emilia)

“Yeah, Hokuto-san! I leave Aniki to you!” (Reus)

While the siblings kept the Four Heavenly Kings busy, Hokuto went by and into the interior without stopping.

And finally… Hokuto confronted the head of the Dark Fluffy army.

“How wonderful, Hundred Wolves! But do you think that you can oppose me, the head of the Dark Fluffy Empire even if you are te Hundred Wolves?” (??)

“Woof!” (Hokuto)

“Very well, then. I will correct… your haughtiness!” (??)

And then… the battle began.

The battle that could be called a life or death struggle lasted for a few days, but… Hokuto was gradually catching up with the overwhelming fluffiness power of the Dark Fluffy Empire.

“Hahaha! Is it to that extent!? Your love for your Master was to that extent!” (??)

“Awoooo——!” (Hokuto)

And when the devotion towards his Master exceeded the limit… the true power of Hokuto was unleashed.

That was the power of contraindication.

Hokuto was beyond dogs… beyond Hundred Wolves… and then…

“Th-that can’t be!? Why are you wagging your tail at people while having the power to that extent!? Answer me… answer me! Hundred Wolves… ooooooo—!” (??)

Theater Edition.

 

“My name is Hokuto. I serve my one and only Master, and… I am a faithful dog!” (Hokuto)

Autumn 2015; the production decision did… not receive the green light.

    Thanks for supporting our laziness.

    Go, Reus! Keep up that high tension bromance!! Do not get discouraged!!!
    I’m curious as to how long they will keep Reus naive. It shows that the world is not that discriminating.

    Multi-day battles do not make good movies if there are only two combatants, but I would watch “Hokuto and the Dark Fluffy Empire.”

    What a latter? Ooooo a letter. That typo threw me for a loop until I read the next line. Nice chapter. The scene where you were describing Fia, and Emilia going down to the table and meeting Reese and Rues for breakfast looks wrong. I think your Comma’s are in the wrong spot. Or maybe there needs to be an additional period. It just looks wrong when you read it. Thanks again.
