Chapter 42: What might you be doing?

Gonna go start a chapter of No Fatigue after this. I plan to do at least 3 chapters per teaser project and then see how it goes (because I haven’t actually read the projects).
Cleaned this up a bit but will probably come back and improve it later.

What might you be doing?

I feel like an extremely hard-to-talk atmosphere was currently hanging between Aura and I.
With Aura having said such a thing, she seemed to have difficulty facing me.
Being as I was, I was also tense about whether I would be scolded after this.


There was no progress so I decide to finish healing myself first.

“…Th-the things I said just now.. y-you heard it all, right……?

The things just now, probably referred to the ‘I like you’s from not long ago.

“Y-you heard everything.. f-from the beginning, right……?”
“Ah, yeah. I heard it all.”

……I had ended up hearing everything from start to finish.

“I-is that so…… So you heard it……”

Originally, it was Weiss’s betrayal at fault so I don’t think I was to blame.
Nevertheless, I’m sure that I was also wrong for continuing to play dead for so long, so I still apologise.


……However, we can’t just stay like this forever.
All joking aside, it’ll be bad if I don’t catch up to Weiss soon.

“W-well I have to get going soon……”

When I start, Aura suddenly starts moving from her spot.

“U-um, Aura-san, what might you be doing……?”

――Then why were you picking up the fallen sword?
And why were you coming here whilst holding that sword?

“C-calm down for now, okay……?”
“……I am calm though?”

――If that’s the case, why did you have teary eyes and a flushed face?
And why were you trembling?

“……Nest should just shut up and stand there silently.”

I unintentionally obey the command of my own slave, Aura.
……Approaching me with the sword in her hand, Aura once again stabbed me in the place I just healed, her face bright red.


Aura and I both just stay silent.
And then a short while passed, Aura gently releases the hilt of the sword and separated from that spot without a word.
I thought she might be in danger by herself, but the place Aura headed to was near the town so I suppose she will be fine.
Since Aura is smart, she ought to be well-informed of the dangerous locations.


After Aura left, I extract the sword that Aura stabbed into my body and heal myself.
I don’t know what the hell she was thinking for a slave to stab her master, but from my point of view, I think it was nicely settled with just this.
I thought she might do something even more violent because it was Aura, so I was honestly relieved.
……Well, I can’t stay here forever.
I reaffixed the cloak that had various holes everywhere, and ran to the town where Weiss was.

――――――[King POV]――――――――――――――――――――――――――

I was in the guild.
Apparently some dangerous monster had appeared, and as the king, I was requested to stay in a room of what was known as the safest place in town ― the guild.
Incidentally, one of the receptionists who was a former adventurer was left behind to guard me just in case.
……I actually wanted to watch the gallant figures of the adventurers fighting for the sake of the town, but it couldn’t be helped with my position as the king.
Nevertheless, I wonder if the [Jet-black Saviour]-sama was also fighting.
If I learn that my true target for coming to this town was there, I plan to head there even if it’s unreasonable.
In that case, I will ignore my position.
If my admired person was there then who on earth would be able to stop me. No, I suppose no one would be able to, or rather I won’t let them.
The time ticked away, little by little.
I didn’t know how long it continued for, but then there was a knock on the door.

“Yes, who might it be?”

The receptionist responds to the knock.

“I came to report about the subjugation, but is that okay?”

……A fair amount of time passed so I suppose the subjugation should be over soon.


However, the receptionist’s reaction wasn’t very favourable. She was making a sour face.
While I was thinking that, she turns to me and whispers into my ear.

“If it’s a report, usually they make it to the guild master instead of here…… It’s possible it might be an enemy targeting you, your majesty, so please be on your guard……”

I was told to be on guard but in this room, I could only run from place to place……
The receptionist gently opens the door.
There, was a man with clothes stained with blood――


Seeing that, the receptionist immediately attacks but that man lightly parries and stabs with a knife he had hidden in a pocket, and flings her away behind him just like that.

“Kukuku…. Good grief, everyone is just too weak. The ones I heard from my superiors didn’t give me much trouble either.”
“Y-your aim is……”
“Sigh…… That again? All I can tell you is it’s an [Order from Above].”

Saying that, the man approaches while pointing the knife towards me.
I know I must escape, but my body doesn’t listen to me.

“Now, it ends here.”

The man says that and swings down his knife――

I shut my eyes, preparing myself for the pain to come.
However, there was no matter how long I waited. I timidly open my eyes.


Wrapped in a tattered black cloak, was [him]――

    1. Such cruel!
      Much Pain!
      What Wait!

      Still, thanks for the chappies!
      …wonder how and if they’ll interrogate him.
      Considering Nest’s healing powers, so long as he keeps on top, no poisons or any other counters to interrogation that weiss carries on his body should be able to keep Weiss from remaining alive and spilling everything he knows eventually.


    1. I don’t know if it’s yandere insomuch as the equivalent of punching someone you like when you’re embarrassed, kinda’ tsun but with him being nigh immortal…


    2. I think it was more her being mad at him for playing such a cruel prank like that. I mean just imagine seeing the person who saved you from despair and treated you kindly, the person you fell in love with, die right before your eyes due to you getting captured. Then they just wake up and laugh it off as a joke…. yeah she was happy he’s alive but probably pissed as hell and embarrassed at the same time.


  1. Are the teaser that will be translated similiar to the project that ‘yabai unni’ doing (which mostly contain *cough cough*)?
    Just wondering, coz he mentioned your name at the latest translation ..


  2. Wait, did aura fully stab through Nest, or was is just a shallow wound? Weiss is probably sweating bullets, seeing a man he thought to be dead, right in front of him. Also, will Weiss be interrogated, or will he kill himself?


    1. She totally stabbed through him.

      After all he just showed that sort of wound is nothing.

      Ideally Nest just have to cut Weiss with his own poison sword.

      Then he can know how painful it is for people who’s not Nest had to suffer.


  3. Such a cliff…. well, luckily Nest arrived in time. Unluckily, arriving in time may ignite the King’s chuunibyou.

    “Heroes arrive at the last and most precise moment (with a cool pose/action)”

    He may say that, or who knows.

  4. Kookie you can’t do this to me! To leave me at a place like this (cliffhanger) and go off to someone else…I mean another project. I know you are a hard core S, but this is too much.


  5. Thank you for taking the time to keep translating this funny story about a Young and naive MC With OP abilites. Too bad he’s to “innocent” to realise that he could easily have a harem at this point if he just grow up a bit mentally. 🙂


  6. imagining weiss’ and the king’s contrasting expressions happening simultaneously is almost too much for my gut to take


      1. Don’t get me wrong not dying does not warrant being stabbed in the chest. Bein a d*** and letting a girl think she is the reason for your death while having her spill her feelings is. Don’t get me wrong I don’t condone Aura’s actions she is a slave and she should know her place but do to the treatment she has received she has seem to forgotten. I just cannot comprehend the mindset of buying attractive female slaves and not sleeping with them. If this is how the Japanese act in fantasy world’s no wonder the birth rate is declining. Thank the lord Xianxia MC do not act like this


  7. damn I thought her tsundere act was good but… she is too dangerous… I would put a retraining order to be honest xD … no matter how upset you are… never stab THROUGH someone’s body kids… never…


  8. ……Approaching me with the sword in her hand, Aura once again stabbed me in the place I just healed, her face bright red.

    Yeah. She’s a tsundere for sure, she’s just embarrassed and knows it doesn’t even really hurt for him to get stabbed, so that’s okay. But I just realized that this guy is the best boyfriend ever for a violent yandere. Kinda like “You cheated on me with that girl(her own opinion), die with me!” *stab* “Oh, what is this? ah, I’ll just take this dagger out and heal myself up, my clothes are ruined now *sob*”
