MTLAnon brought you 2nd chapter of the day. The rest of the chp will be released as soon as I finish editing them.
“Derito, you…. WTF are you saying! Don’t play around!”
Hearing Derito plea, Tiles bears his pain and cry out.
“Hur, Hurry up and take me out from this shitty labyrinthhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!”
Looking on his leader that was screaming with cold eyes, Derito kneels down and speak to Arlac.
“This, I think you will benefit from this as well.”
“Ho, it seems to be interesting. Continue….”
“Hurry,Hurry, RIGHT NOWWWWWW!”
“You are so noisy! Don’t disturb onii-sama talk! Purukku, Shut the man up!”
Purukku approach Tiles that keep yelling, and he put dirty cloth to his mouth to silence him.
Because it was quite rough, if it was done poorly he might stop breathing and die, but, at this place including Derito, no one care about the whatever Tiles life or death.
Seeing it already quiet down, Alrac begin to prompts him to speak.
“Now, you can continue”
“Yes. the reason why you let some of our teammate escape, was so they will inform about the existence of this labyrinth, and it will invite the adventure like us here, is not that true?”
“Why did you think so?”
“A labyrinth such as this, even if there are no one talk about it, there should have some rumour about it.But, when we do information gathering we didn’t know about this labyrinth. There are 2 possibility. First, the person that knew of the existence of the labyrinth has been killed. Or Second, this labyrinth was made just recently”
“If it was the former, then that is no way you will let our party member escape, With the strength of the knight over there, It is not difficult to kill the priest and mage that has escape. But, when I think that there are almost no trap or monster, I feel that the latter was more convincing.”
“I don’t know how you are able to create a labyrinth. But, when I think about all the reason I miss, I can’t get any answer other than that, you want to call people to this labyrinth with the treasure as a bait.”
While looking at the priest that was able to see through his plan plainly, Alrac said.
“Assuming what you said is true, why I should let the woman go?”
“Because, if the story only come from our member that escape, than the human that escape from this labyrinth was too few.”
“Is it because the people they can tell was only several people?”
“Yes, the reason is because the Knight was too strong.”
Derito remember when his teammate from [Sword of Faith] was killed.
No matter how attractive the treasure is in this place, there wouldn’t be many people that will come if they knew the strength of the creature that protect it for example like a dragon.
Adventure that was aiming to get rich, is very sensitive to the danger to his life.
“Then, isn’t it useless to free this woman then? These woman knew how fearsome my knight is.”
“No, it isn’t useless.”
“I want them to assume the duty that they already defeat the knight”
If the dragon that reside in a cave already been defeated, It was particularly a gold mine.
“Will this woman cooperate with it?”
“I would make them cooperate!”
Derito raise his face looking at Alrac.
For a while, the eyes of the priest and the master of the labyrinth meet.
“….. I might do what you suggest, but, why are you helping this woman?”
Alrac ask because he doesn’t understand his reasoning.
He look at Derito stern blue eyes
Derito swallow his saliva and speak what is in his mind.
“At this moment, it is only me that can help them…. and, when I think it like that, my mouth move with I realize it”
“Did you have no regret?”
“Yes, but I can’t feel at ease if I abandon this woman here..”
“I’m cool with it~”
Halva laugh as a response to Alrac word.
“Will you release the woman?”
“By your lord wish.”
With the word of the master of the labyrinth, the Azure Knight answer it without any attachment.
“Halva, what did you think?”
“I think it is okay. I did not intend to use them for anything particularly anyway!”
Did she lost interest? Halva answer like she is throwing away the toy that she was tired with.
Did she get interest on Derito instead? she ask so she can appraise him.
“But Hey~, if we release the woman instead you and that man over there, are you okay with it? Perhaps, you might be killed immediately you know.”
“If possible I want to escape from this place immediately, since I didn’t find anything here anyway. However….”
“To protect the woman even though it means dying, I think it isn’t bad for a man last moment”
“What a selfish guy~”
[TL: what a sweet guy, it make me have diabetes.]
Her smile became wider and Haluva say to her elder brother.
“Un, I like it. Onii-sama! Let’s go with what this man suggest!”
“Derito, we will accept your suggestion.The woman will be set free. It was unplanned this time…, but after working on a little bit more of the detail, let’s carry out the plan. Is that ok?”
“Than,Thank you very much”
“Instead, you will become our subordinate and work for us. you will not have any problem with it right?”
“…. Yes. I understand.”
“Don’t worry, even though it is a little you will receive your wages.”
“Depending on your work, you might be able to go to the ground”
On the face of battle, he might not be that useful, but Alrac have take interest on Derito. Halva simply like strong being, and Alrac like a person that was quick-witted.
Of course, Arlac and Halva aren’t stupid.
They have outstanding knowledge about magic, and know quite a lot about labyrinth.
But, beside that, they are slightly ignorant about human thought like this time in particular. To make up for that. it is necessary to have human collaborator.
“Just incase, I will warn you first. Even if you think your life isn’t precious and betray us. Then, at that time don’t think you can die easily.”
Seeing Derito lowering his head, Alrac nods slightly.
When the talk was finished, the head of Goblins Purukku call his master.
“Hm? what is the matter Purukku?”
“This adventure has killed a lot of our tribe member! To set them free like this, and to add them as our subordinate, how will I able to convince our fellow tribesman!”
The head of goblin said, while keeping his urge to kill and only glare on them.
Certainly, that was reasonable. Alrac and Halva was looking at each other.
The guy that has killed their fellow tribesman now become their friends, If they are on their shoes they will never be able to tolerate it. It was not possible to tell the goblin to endure it.
However, it will be wasteful if they cancel the agreement they have just know.
“Nnnn~, I got it! Onii-sama. There is a right guy for this!”
As she just remember, Halva look at the man that has cloth stuffed into his mouth and was struggling at the floor.
The leader of [Sword of Faith], Tiles.
“Purukku. I will give that Tiles to you. You can do whatever you want to him whatever to torture, kill or even eat him, do as you like.”
“Is that true?!!!”
Halva and Purukku have cruel smile on their face.
Tiles that already hear their talk began to scream.
“Derito, you don’t mind do you?”
“….. It’s inevitable. He was our leader, and in such a time, it is proper for him to shoulder all the responsibility on his back.”
To Alrac word, he show some hesitation but Derito answer it properly.
With that, It was the same like signing his death execution form.
“Good then, Purukku. I will give you the right of this man life or death to you, like what Halva said. In compensation of Derito and the woman, are you okay with it?”
“Yes, yes, If it is such a thing…… Then, can we also have the corpse and the belonging of other adventures?”
The head of the Goblin has a vulgar smile on his face, Alrac said ‘I don’t mind’ and give them permission.
“Then, there will be no problem anymore. I will let you take control on him.”
In this way, the long discussion was ended.
＊ ＊ ＊
A few days later.
At the entrance of Labyrinth, there was the member of [Iron Warmaiden] and Derito as well as Knight of Judgement Commanding the Hounds of Depravity that was standing and watching them from the distance.
“Then, we are here now. Please do like what we have talked before.”
“En, I understood.”
The leader of [Iron Warmaiden] Izuren nods many time on Derito words.
They will spread about the fact that the Knight have been beaten, the treasure of the labyrinth and the rough map to this place, they will talk about this story on Bendole from now on and this story will raise the interest of the adventure.
[TL: The leader of [Iron Warmaiden] on previous translation was written as Yslaine but I change it to Izuren instead because it was what MTL give to me. so to not be confused in the future I change it like this.]
“Lorna, jen, you will be staying?”
“Un, I will be here with Derito.”
While saying so, Lorna look on Derito side.
He was embarrassed and give a wry smile, and he said [I will be going first], and return to the labyrinth.
The memory when Izuren was being controlled by the knight was clouded, she just remember that Derito was the one that save them. The Knight Corias, the magician Eto, and the priest Vena also have the similar condition, Lorna and Jen seems to remember the things at that time as well.
Without thinking back the danger to his life, Derito came and save them.
Lorna was begging the master of the labyrinth so she can stay together with Derito.
Hearing her story, Alrac without any expression said ‘do whatever you want’, and Halva said ‘Love, it was good ja ne. It was good ja na. I think it was good’ and permit them to stay.
Rather, it was Derito that desperately persuade them and said it was dangerous to stay here.
‘hesitate for a little bit’ ‘you misunderstanding thanks with love’ ‘he didn’t expect anything from it’ ‘Did you forget the terror of the labyrinth?’ was used to persuade her to escape.
But Lorna throw all the persuasion aside, on the contrary she told how long she love Derito instead, when he was told that his face turns red, Moreover did he intend to continue living in the labyrinth alone? contrary he was being persuade back instead.
The Figure of Lorna at that time was sincere, that even Izuren that have traveling together with her has never seen it before, It was passionately.
[TL: Damn you side character and your love story]
“Maa, they will need a guard”
In the case of jen, because she want to pay the debt for saving her life and saying that they will need warrior to fight anyways, so she request to stay behind. When the master of the labyrinth hear this, he approve it and don’t mind at all.
Derito try to persuade her, but she doesn’t have ear to hear from the beginning anyways and said ‘I will not change my mind’, she wish to stay at the labyrinth.
“Well then, see you”
“Thank you very much for all you have done”
“Hang in there”
Because we will not meet again, she said goodbye for the last time.
It was brief, but they will always stay in her heart, when the reserved thief and spirited female warrior that had adventure together with her disappear back into the labyrinth.
For their safety and their heart will not be seized by the darkness of the labyrinth.
“Everyone, we will spread the information that [Iron Warmaiden] will be dissolved.”
There is no objection from other member.
Then, with the speech as the signal, they carry the bag which contain the treasure from the labyrinth on their back.
For Alrac and Halva, that wanted to avoid losing the treasure, it was necessary sacrifice, so they permit it to let them take the treasure out of the labyrinth.
This treasure will be the evidence that they obtain after defeating the Knight.
After selling the treasure and divide it into 4 portion it will still quiet a fortune.
She will start an inn with this money.
While considering such a thing, Izuren begin to walk.
Toward the City of Bendole.
