As I walked down the stone-paved corridor, I could hear a sound. A sound other than the clanking sound of my heavy armor and my footsteps.
The sound of something cutting through the wind. I continued to walk for a while before I arrived at an open area.
I raised my voice. This was the training ground. The training ground for the knight.
“Ah, Zero. What’s the matter?”
A husky and cool sounding female voice could be heard. The one who was in the training ground for the knight was Aleine-san, the captain of the knight. There was a greatsword as big as I was in her hand. She must have been practicing waving that greatsword before I called out to her.
She had neat, shoulder-length, short blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes. She was a beautiful woman who was much taller than me and had a voluptuous muscular body, a very different body compared to my feebly thin one. She was the person that saved my life.
One year ago. I was suddenly transported into another world and was in a state of confusion when she picked me up and took care of me. It was not an exaggeration to say that I was able to survive in this other world thanks to this person.
The Kingdom of Patrasia. I was transported into this Patrasia Kingdom and she was the captain of the knight here. She was the person that arbitrarily admitted me into the knight. I was really indebted to her as the person who saved my life and my superior.
“My apologies. I’ve interrupted your training.”
I apologized to Alaine-san and handed her a towel for her to wipe her sweat off. By doing so, the thick scent of Alaine-san’s sweat assaulted me.
Sniff… Whoa… Sniff sniff….
……… The smell of a woman’s sweat is really nice.
“No. It’s fine. There’s no problem at all. So? What’s the matter?”
I took a deep breath and put on a serious expression on my face.
“I have something important to tell you.”
Hearing my words, I could see Alaine-san’s face twitching. It was truly a rare phenomenon for Alaine-san’s expression to change, even just for a moment since basically her expression never changed.
“When can we talk?”
“…. I-I see…. Then how about tonight at my place?”
“I understand. Then tonight I will visit Alaine-san’s room.”
“Yeah. You do that…. Remember to be careful so you won’t get caught.”
“……? Oh, yes.”
I inclined my head to the side at Aleine-san’s words but I still nodded my head nonetheless.
Why do I need to be careful not to get caught?
While it was true that it’d be a little problematic for a man like me to visit Alaine-san’s room since she was not married yet, this wouldn’t be the first time I went to her room though. I had already visited her room several times before.
And so… Why now? I don’t understand but since Aleine-san said so, I just need to follow her lead. Maybe there’s something else going on.
“Then I will see you again tonight.”
Alaine-san’s voice was higher than usual. I then left the training ground although my mind was still confused at the meaning behind her words.
T/N: Poor Alaine! She’s going to be so disappointed! (ಥ﹏ಥ)
