Demon Noble Girl ~Story of a Careless Demon~ - Chapter 22.2
This is a Bonus Chapter Thank You To Malk!
Shortly after the Saint Country allowed the second prince of the Church Nation to come to our country to study, they also sneak in his sister, the First Princess, at the last minute.
You can’t do that, you know? But they have already left and we have only received a reply saying that they were happy to see us, and that they have already made arrangements to rent a large mansion in the capital that had been purchased by a southern viscount family. ……I thought that Viscount was a neutral party, but I was caught off guard.
Moreover, there are about thirty attendants as the second prince’s guards and caretakers, but with the arrival of the first princess, the number has swelled to nearly eighty, and the prime minister ended up getting a headache.
It’s okay, Mr. Prime Minister. Let’s bring the darkness to your scalp, which has begun to shine again.
I mumbled, and before I knew it, Rick, who had come up next to me, called out to me.
Those knights in white and blue armor on the lead horse must be the Knights of the Order. How many of them are there, about 40 people I think? And about ten black-painted, carriages drawn by six horses on each carriage followed behind them.
“They are making a big deal out of this…”
“When we went on that expedition to defeat the Demon King, we had twice as many men as this one, Yurushia.”
Indeed there was such a past.
Come to think of it, when I was 8 years old and went to the neighboring country, there were about 60 of us there. But that’s just because my father is overprotective.
One of the Knight of the Order has come to us earlier. But when they are within visual distance, a lone knight in bright blue armor is coming towards us once again.
As Noel’s men casually formed a formation, the knight stopped his horse in front of it. He gazed around scrutinizingly as if he was appraising the surrounding area, then his gaze stopped at me and then he whistle nonchalantly.
“Oh, there’s a beautiful girl here. Are you the Saintess of the Holy Kingdom?”
Was it about the same as Rick when he was a year old? Black hair and blue eyes. I’d say he’s beautiful in his own right, but he is acting somewhat irreverent or disrespectful towards the rest of us.
That…… no way.
“Who are you? I take it you are a Knight of the Order of Sylber….”
“Ah? I’m not interested in you. I need to talk to the lady over there.”
The blue knight cut off Rick’s words who called out to him and discarded them. The Holy Knights put their hands on their swords for that act of disrespecting the prince of a country, but the blue knight didn’t take it into consideration and frowned slightly when he saw me.
“…You have the crossing gate ‘skill’ huh.”
Perhaps Noel thought something is going to happen to me, so he stepped forward and put his hand on the hilt of his sword.
“You! What do you think you are doing!”
“… Ho~, so you are the “Hero”. But if you pull out that sword, I won’t be responsible if anything happened, you know?”
The Blue Knight and Noel glare at each other.
In the meantime, me and Rick, who was late to the party, were surrounded by the escort knights. I asked Fani and Noa to accompany me today, but then Noa whispered secretly in my ear.
“That man just now, he said ‘skill’. Please stay behind us until Fani is finished with her analysis.”
The Blue Knight did indeed say ‘skill’.
If you’re simply saying that about the skills that people have, that’s fine, but if you’re really, like the otherworldly Tess, possess quantified skills or special skills, then we have to be careful since we don’t know what they can set up.
Besides, he recognized Noel as a ‘Hero’ at a glance.
Noel is famous in other countries for some reason, but when he sees the boy knight-like Noel that came out earlier, he immediately sees through his identity.
There is no concept of quantified ‘skill’ in this world. Even in Tess, past reincarnated people and great mage need to make a contract with the spirits to have them.
If you sign a contract with something and use it on an individual basis, making you the only one who could use it, then the chances are not zero. In fact, the former hero who reincarnated to the earth was using the skill of “Secret Arts of the Hero” on their own.
“…【Appraisal】 or 【Analysis】…..maybe”
Fani who is next to me blurted that out, and I nodded in agreement. Fanny’s analysis is visually inferred from the opponent’s magical flow, but there may be a skill that can do it automatically like an app.
But if you couldn’t ‘see’ me, then you’re probably less powerful than Yuuki-kun. But I have a feeling that there are some other “hidden balls”.
“Big brother, what are you doing?”
A pretty girl’s voice rang out, breaking the rising tension in the air.
Before I knew it, the people from the Sylber Nation party were coming to our side, with one person being surrounded by knights, that person was about my age, a rather pretty girl with pink blonde hair wearing a gorgeous dress.
“Esther, don’t disturb the hero.”
“Brother Axel is doing his own thing again, isn’t he?…..Oh, could it be that you’re the Hero Noel-sama? Oh, my God, that’s so cool! Is it possible that it’s Prince Ludrick over there? This is so much nicer than talking about it! Oh, no, Esther, is in trouble!”
The girl, called Esther, put her hands on her pink-tinted cheeks and bounced over and over again because of her excitement.
……We become silent without thinking. What is this (laughs). Esther…I think it was the name of the first princess of the Church Nation.
Don’t tell me……. this arrogant blue knight is the “second prince” who asked me to marry him.
Also, I feel a heroine-like presence (laughs). Is it bad if I refuse their entry into the country?
