I Was A Sword When I Reincarnated - Chapter 375
After hearing of the end of the war from Marmano, Fran asked what she was most concerned about to Marmano.
“Do you know how Mea is doing?”
Yes, it was about where Mea and the others are now, and how they are doing. However, Marmano only shook his head apologetically.
“I don’t know. The princess left Gringott for the southern battlefield.”
“Is it safe there?”
“I don’t know that either. She is very strong though, so I’m sure she is safe……”
“If you want to find out more, you should go to the royal capital.”
It can’t be helped after all huh. I’m also curious about Myrellia’s will. She said she wanted me to help a boy named Romeo…….
But, well, I’m hesitant to head to Bestia, the royal capital.
“Is this town okay?”
After all, the Black Cat tribe has taken refuge in Gringott.There’s no way Fran can ignore the safety of this city and leave.
“Are you worried? Don’t worry. The war is over, and the knights and soldiers we sent from our city will soon return. Those who have volunteered to fight for us will do the same too. We’ll have no problem finding food to shelter them in the city until they return.”
It’s just like what he said. Well, now that the monster beast in the dungeon is gone, things are back to how it was before. If only there were no concerns about food supply, it wouldn’t be so much as a crisis for Gringott.
“Gringott is all right now. Please leave the Black Cats to me. I won’t treat them badly.”
Marmano had Fran’s back. Perhaps, he sympathized with Fran’s anxiety.
“Leave it to me.”
After that, we were asked to stay at Marmano’s residence for one night, but we decided to leave immediately. It would have been nice to stay with the Black Cats for one night instead of in Marmano’s residence, but Fran wanted to hurry ahead.
Now that the Black Cat tribe was safe and sound, Fran wanted to ensure that Mea and the others are safe as well. We left Gringott with the Black Cats seeing us off as the sun set.
The soldiers were quite worried about us, but with Urushi around, we can manage attacks from most demonic beasts. If it was of a lower rank, we could use dark magic to defeat it, and small fry can’t catch up with Urushi’s speed anyways. If it is of the same rank or higher than Urushi, we’ll use detection skills to steer clear of them.
“Su~ Su~ Su~”
Fran was already used to a forceful march on Urushi, that she could sleep soundly on its back. While firmly grasping its hair and belt, she slept soundly, buried in Urushi’s hair. Looks like we won’t even need telekinetic support. Actually, I’m not going to turn off my telekinesis.
She was even dexterous enough to eat her dinner before bed, and what she ate wasn’t something like skewers or bread, but soup and pasta. She managed to balance it well, and ate it with a fork and spoon.
At this rate, wasn’t it already possible for her to live on Urushi’s back? There was no problem with sleeping and eating.
What’s left… a bath? No, she definitely couldn’t take a bath, indeed. However, I think we could go for a shower, though Urushi will get soaked. Wait, I think that can be prevented if we set up a wind barrier.
Seriously, I think I could handle most things while on Urushi’s back. Just, it would be quite a nuisance for Urushi.
『What’s wrong Urushi?』
Oh, it seems that Fran, who was sleeping while hugging Urushi’s neck, was holding on too tightly and strangled Urushi. Fran’s hand seemed to be in his neck in just the worst way possible.
『No. If you pull it off badly, you’ll wake up Fran. That’s why… Good luck?』
It’s not that I’m getting back at you because Fran was with me while I was struggling with my refurbishment and Urushi was fast asleep, okay? It’s the truth you know?
While having such an exchange, we pushed through the night sky, and by next morning, we had reached the royal capital.
There were no signs of war having broken out here. The royal capital was there, looking exactly the same as when I visited before. Outside the gate, a line of merchants and adventurers waited to enter, as usual. The aftermath of the war seemed to have barely reached the royal capital.
『Let’s get off in front.』
“Master, over there.”
When I instructed Urushi to descend to the plains before the royal capital, Fran, who was already awake, pointed to the sky.
『What? That is— a Wyvern?』
『I see! Is that Lind?!』
However, I couldn’t tell. Just from looking at it, it looked like a wyvern, or something flying, passed us.
I’m going to try again to use my omnidirectional detection against the shadows flying far away. Then, I sensed a vaguely familiar magical power.
“It was definitely Lind.”
『How could you know who it was from so far away?』
“Friends don’t mistake each other.”
It was such a simple reason.
『Is- is that so? Oh, well. Urushi, don’t stop there. We’re going to meet up with Mea and the others.』
They seemed to notice us, too, and slightly deviated from their original course toward the royal capital and headed toward us. As they were moving in the sky at high speeds, in a blink of an eye, the distance between us was closed.
One wouldn’t make a mistake at this distance. It was Mea, Kuina and Lind. But, it looks like Mianoa isn’t with them.
“Fran! Master! Urushi! It’s been a long time!”
Mea waved from above Lind. Urushi and Lind, as they were told, lowered their altitudes and headed towards a corner of the plains.
As they landed, Mea jumped off Lind’s back and ran at us. The same goes for Fran.
The two jumped around while holding their hands together, like two high school girls who haven’t seen each other for a long time. They frolicked and cackled, an act befitting of their age.
