Mushoku Tensei FF Chapter 57: Aisha’s Adventure
Hello, my name is Aisha Greyrat.
I’m the daughter of Paul Greyrat and Lilia, the half sister of Rudeus Greyrat and Norn Greyrat.
As the half sibling, my mother always told me to behave like a maid. So I do what I’m ordered. The only time I can act like a normal little girl is when Claude visits us.
Claude is a great big brother.
Unlike Rudeus, who I don’t really know, he is someone that is always there for me and Norn. Every month, he always comes and reads the letter written by our big brother Rudeus. Even if neither I nor Norn know him that well, we can perceive what kind of person he is from the story of the letter.
Unlike me, Norn is living a better life.
She was never told to clean anything and was lavished with attention from both Mother Zenith and Father.Is the reason why we are treated differently because we had different mothers?
I don’t know about that…
Claude is always there with me. He always teases me and Norn and treats us the same!
Whenever he beats my father down or is beaten by my father, I always cheer for them!
I don’t know who to cheer for, but Norn dislikes the spar. She always gets inside whenever that happens, but that’s cool!
I noticed Father had a glint in his eyes as they clashed swords.loves the thrill of being defeated by Claude. Even my young eyes can see that Claude is getting better every day.
“Cluud! You are so amashing! It all went whoosh! And shoosh! And.. and..”
When I approached him and talked about what happened, he smiled at me while drinking his water from his mug.
I loved it whenever he patted my head.
I don’t know why, but it feels so comfortable.
“So, are you ready to marry me now?”
I slapped his hand that was trying to pull my cheeks.
He’s too strong, whenever he pinched my cheeks, they hurt.
“Mumumu, I don’t want to marry you, Clud is bad!”
With that, I ran away from him.
That… is the last day I met him…
The day after, the metastasis incident happened. making me and my mother stranded in a place we don’t know.
My mother hugged me and pulled me to the ground.
Gasping for breath, mom hugged me and we walked to a nearby human residence.
At this time, what I felt was longing.
“Clude… where are you?”
My big brother, Claude… help…
I slept, and when I awoke again, What I see is a steel bar.
What is this?
Where is this place?
This place is so damp…
I can see that my mother is looking down. What happened?
We’ve arrived in the capital of Shirone Kingdom, and knowing that big brother Rudeus’ late teacher, Roxy, was teaching here, my mother brought me here and asked to be saved.
Sadly, the person in question has left the kingdom to join the search for the missing people. Without knowing this, the mother followed the soldier and met with Pax Shirone.
My big brother’s junior.
Pax Shirone is this kingdom’s prince. He’s the Water King’s second disciple after my brother. Usually, he should respect my mother and me, or at least be polite to us.
This act of imprisoning us was because he was jealous of big brother. He wants to receive the affection of Roxy, but since he’s too stupid, unlike his big brother Rudeus. Roxy always compared him with her big brother Rudeus, making him irked at the big brother.
Then, was the reason he imprisoned us because he wanted to make big brother Rudeus suffer?
Apparently, he wants to use us as bait for big brother Rudeus.
I mean, even a five-year-old like me knows that you can’t bait a fish without casting the rod. How could he even bait Big Brother when he could possibly be one of the victims of the metastasis?
I know what Roxy feels…
How can a prince be this dumb?
I fear this country’s future…
Either way, even if we are imprisoned. We aren’t actually becoming prisoners. He still watched us, but we acted like hired maids in the castle.
While doing everyday chores, I snuck out of the castle to send a letter to someone. But I failed, and I met a pervert using a panty in his head trying to save me from the soldiers.
Oh, I know this person.
“Thank you for saving me…”
[Aisha Greyrat. Currently, she’s being detained in the Shirone Kingdom. In the scene from just now, you will likely try to save her. However, you must absolutely not use your own name. Use ‘The Owner of Dead End’ to name yourself and listen to her circumstances. After that, send a letter to an acquaintance at the Shirone Royal Palace. If you do that, you will be able to save both Aisha and Lilia from the Shirone Royal Palace.
That’s what Hitogami told me.
From what I know, it seems that something dangerous will happen if I use my own name, however, even in the Shirone Kingdom. Arbalest is still hiding in the shadows, saving people.
Then, how could they not save Aisha and Lilia?
What happened to them?
Is there some higher power that is creating a ruckus in my family?
From what I know, Roxy should still be here. Then, the royal family shouldn’t be the ones that are creating trouble for me.
If Roxy found out about me and left the place, she mustn’t be here anymore.
At times like these, I miss Claude. He can take care of information and sieve it easily like a pro.
I sometimes wonder whether he’s the reincarnated old man or I am…
Heck, is he some kind of reincarnated spy or something?
Or is this world’s humanity just that great?
Even Mike and Charles are way better than me. How could this be?
Sigh, what should I do now, I wonder?
Let’s just start by sending a letter to Roxy. There’s no way royalties will suddenly capture me out of nowhere, right?
Several minutes after I sent the letter to the Adventurer’s Guild
I realized I was being followed.
At first, I thought I was being observed by Ruijerd.
Whenever I’m alone, I always seem to get into some kind of problem or other.
That’s why I assumed he was on standby in case something went wrong.
However, these past few months, Ruijerd hasn’t gone out of his way to follow me from behind and has just acted together with me directly.
In the first place, Ruijerd’s ability to follow is extremely superior.
There’s no way I could have noticed it.
The one who is currently following behind me is too obvious.
There’s no way it’s Ruijerd.
And then, most likely, it’s not Eris either.
Eris is lousy at following. It wouldn’t be strange if I noticed her presence from the time we left the inn.
I can’t think of a reason why they would specifically choose to follow the Adventurers Guild.
Then who is it?
Someone who would have a grudge against me in this country… I don’t have any ideas.
After all, we just arrived in this country yesterday.
There’s a high probability that something will happen in this country from here on out, but currently we have yet to trouble anyone.
Otherwise, maybe it’s related to some incident that happened on the Demon Continent.
Who would go out of their way to follow us all the way from the Demon Continent just for revenge?
There’s no way that can be the case.
There is the possibility that there are survivors from the smuggling organization of Saint Port.
They might have come across me coincidentally and chosen this chance to try and finish me off.
although the probability that there is no relation is also high.
The fact that I was able to notice them is proof that their tracking techniques are crude.
While turning around a street corner, I stole a glance behind me.
I saw a small shadow quickly hide under cover.
It’s a child.
There’s the possibility that some neighborhood child somehow or other decided that I was conceited and therefore a villain, then started playing after me.
I won’t even bother thinking for what sake.
I’m sure there are children who suddenly start up with that kind of play.
I wonder if I should hide somewhere, then when they come up and start panicking after losing me, jump out and yell “Wah!”
No, in this world there’s also the halfling race, who have a short height.
Negligence is forbidden.
I decided to lose them somewhere.
While thinking that, I crossed over two crossroads and turned right into a bit of a small alley.
Suddenly, I felt like something was out of place.
But, without worrying about it much, I created an earth wall.
Using my magic power, a 3 meter or so wall suddenly came up out of the ground, turning the alley into a dead end.
On the other side of the wall, I heard the sound of panic and hurried movements.
And then, the sound of hitting the wall without power.
There was no sign that they were going to try to destroy the wall with magic or swordsmanship.
I thought it could be Eris chasing after me, but if it were her, she could jump right over a wall of this size.
I wonder if, after all, it was a prank by some children from the neighborhood.
After being satisfied with that conclusion, I started to walk away from there.
Well then, I ended up coming a bit deep into this alley in order to break away from that child.
Which way was it to the main street?
It seems like I’m a bit lost.
Well, if I can find some sort of large road, then I’ll quickly find my way back.
While thinking that, I walked around the various twists and turns of the alley, but I wasn’t able to go in the direction I wanted and kept circling around.
The main street of this town is bent and twisted.
It’s a huge difference from Milishon, which has roads like a Go Board.
Even I, who don’t have the attribute of a lost child, am surely on the verge of being lost right now.
In the worst case, it would be fine if I used magic and jumped up onto the roof.
Come to think of it, the scene Hitogami showed me was similar to an alley like this.
Then, I remembered back to that out of place feeling from a moment ago.
That didn’t feel out of place.
It was feeling something you’ve experienced before, déjà vu.
I quickly returned to where I left off.
I ran through the many turns of the alley.
While getting lost in the forked roads, I continued to turn around and returned to the path from just now.
“No, stop it!”
I heard a young girl’s scream.
The earth wall I created entered my field of vision.
“Give it back!”
I put my hand on the earth wall and started to concentrate on my magic power.
Using earth magic, I manipulated the wall and created a fissure in it while simultaneously using wind magic to launch a shock wave through the center of the wall.
The earth wall shattered into tiny pieces all over the place with a loud [BANG] sound.
In my field of vision, that scene entered.
A single young girl was violently captured.
The ones with their hands holding her were soldiers.
There were two of them.
The one who wasn’t holding the young girl was tearing up a piece of paper taken from her.
“Don’t rip up the letter! I was sending it to your father!”
The two soldiers looked at me with dumbfounded faces.
“Wh-who in the world are you…”
Traces of Lilia could be seen in her face. She wore a ponytail with the same brown hair as Paul while wearing a small maid outfit.
That face gave off the impression of normally being lively and aloof, and it was currently distorted with tears and a dripping nose.
Looking down on that, those vulgar faces…
No, the two soldiers weren’t making a vulgar face.
If you were to ask which, they were making apologetic faces.
They were just doing their jobs to the end, and their intention didn’t seem to be in it.
“Who are you?! Name yourself! ”
“I’m that child’s…”
Oh wait, I’m not supposed to name myself correctly.
“My name is the Knight of the Moon’s Shadow, Shadow Moon Knight!”
“What do you mean, Knight? No matter how you look at it, you’re a magician!”
I was hit with a precise tsukkomi.
Next time, I’ll make sure to name myself Magician Ebil.
Well, it’s fine.
“Listen here, boy. It’s fine to play make believe as an ally of justice, but even if we look like this, we old men are soldiers of the Royal Palace. Since she’s lost, we’re just trying to take her back home. ”
In the end, they even looked at me with the eyes of a rowdy child and gently gave me a warning.
I’m sure these words have a few lies mixed in, but after looking at Aisha sobbing on the side of the knight, she was making a bit of a troubled face.
I’m sure they’re not bad guys.
There might have been some problems in the Royal Palace, and even though Aisha and Lilia are being detained, it’s not something that the knights consider a bad thing.
It could be that it would be bad for us to create hostility with these soldiers.
I might not be supposed to fight, but solving this with conversation could be better.
“Even though it seems like you’re tearing up the letter she was holding?”
“Ahh… That is, well, what? There are various things, adult things. ”
That’s right, isn’t it? There are a lot of different adult things, right?
Then, at that moment, making use of a single gap, Aisha shook off the hands of the soldier.
“Pw-pwease shave me!”
She ran straight over to me, hid behind my back, and with a crumpled face covered in tears and snot, she clung onto me.
After looking at the desperation in that face, I started to feel like it didn’t matter if I turned a kingdom or two into enemies.
“Th-those pweople, foshefully, my letta, and teard…”
I have no idea what she’s saying, but at least the desperation is being conveyed.
I give up. I give up.
A middle-aged adult like me can’t do something like a young ally of justice play.
I’ll go about it in my usual way.
I suddenly raised my hand and used voiceless incantations to send a rock bullet flying.
The knight noticed the sudden rock bullet, unsheathed his blade in an instant, and deflected it.
Oh, their reaction was good!
Water God style, huh.
That’s hard to deal with.
But, well, it’s not like rock bullets are the only thing I can use.
With this much distance, there’s plenty of margin for error.
Avoid my rock bullet. That makes you the 4th one, you know.
“Then this guy… could it be Roxy-dono’s!?”
“He really came!”
“Call for reinforcements!”
I created a pitfall at the foot of the knight who was about to run off.
Simultaneously, I fired off rock bullets in succession at the other knight to keep him in check, while asking Aisha a question.
“We’re going to run. Are you alright?”
Aisha nodded while continuing to sob.
After this, we just need to knock out one more and then break away.
I thought that at the time I thought that.
Suddenly, I heard a high-pitched sound ring out like a bird’s cry.
The sound came out of the center of a hole.
It’s a whistle.
They let out an alarm.
And then, from a bit of a distance away as well as from nearby alleys, I could hear the same sound of a whistle blowing.
Each of the whistling methods and sounds was slightly different.
Most likely, they’re letting each other know their position so they can meet using the sound.
After checking to see that my hand that was launching rock bullets had stopped, the soldier opened his mouth wide.
“All of the paths around this area have been sealed off! Soon soldiers will come here as well. Stop with the pointless resistance; hand over that girl! We won’t treat you badly.
This is bad.
He’s called for allies.
Most likely, knights and soldiers will quickly flood in here.
But, I still have one hand left.
“Aisha, please hold onto me tightly!”
“No matter what, you must not let go!”
While Aisha was bewildered, she put her hands around my waist and tightly held onto me.
I grabbed her clothes with my left hand, and with my right hand, I started gathering magic power.
I released an earth spear [Earth Lance] centered at the flat point below my feet.
Using that momentum, I flew into the air like a human bullet.
With the confused sounds of the soldiers and Aisha’s scream, I got out of that place in a brilliant way.
Wa ha ha, see you later, foolish fellows!
Incidentally, since I was getting ahead of myself, I flew too high, and I ended up breaking both of my legs with a solid crack on the landing.
This type of dangerous magic is no good unless you practice it on a daily basis.
