Special Chapter 1
I threw the vase from the desk at the wall, and it made a loud sound as it hit the wall and shattered.
[Why wont it go as I want! I finally got the dagger back, yet they said, “A noble family is ruined when they let a thief rob them of their heirloom”! It’s bullshit! Those ugly bastards! Fat to the point their rolls spill over when they wear a pair of trousers!?]
I hit the wall angrily, hard enough to make the picture’s frame on the wall fall off. Although we are the same rank as that fat noble, he doesn’t even care that I have Sebastian, the former S-ranked adventurer with me.
[Ojou-sama, please calm down. Doing this won’t help anything.]
Sebastian’s calm is irritating me a little, so I throw a pillow at him, hitting him squarely in the face since he didn’t avoid it.
Sebastian catches the pillow which makes a miserable sound as it falls. Damn it! You didn’t avoid it to get my attention, right?
[Shut up! If you say that, how could I calm down!?]
I’ve had a hard time as the head of the family since my parents died. If this deal had succeeded, our family’s honor would have been restored, to the same as it was before they died.
[The noble put his hand in my affairs! The thief who stole the heirloom is dead! I need to vent my anger somewhere!]
Suddenly, I have an idea.
[That’s right, Sebastian. Kill that adventurer who brought the dagger!]
I can vent my anger on him if he is an adventurer, right? Isn’t he an adventurer? Oh well, it won’t make any difference. With a noble’s influence, I can kill that adventurer without any trouble, after all.
[On the day of the repurchase, they already warned us that even if Ojou-sama is a noble, killing him would be a problem.
Especially with the adventurer’s guild as the intermediary, they won’t remain silent about this.]
[Isn’t the guild master Sebastian’s former apprentice!? Can’t you manage it somehow!?]
Even for the former teacher of the guild master, it is something unreasonable to ask of them.
[Please, Sebastian. There is no one else but that adventurer to vent my anger on. I will go crazy if it remains like this.]
As emotion surges up, a tear comes out of Ojou-sama’s eyes. Being crazy isn’t a joke, at all.
Sebastian thinks for a while. When it comes to it, this is the same as begging him…
[Hmm… Understood. I will kill him. Since there will be trouble if he is killed in town, I will wait for him to leave.]
I gave the description along with some money to the gatekeeper to have him come and tell me directly when that adventurer leaves town.
Sebastian is going to kill him as soon as he gets the report.
[Thank you, Sebastian…]
[Since there is a high chance for the guild’s personnel to be suspicious, I will handle this alone.]
I heard that Sebastian’s ability is higher than the guild leader’s, so it isn’t a problem if he does it alone. I don’t want to cause a lot of trouble, either. My reputation has already fallen, so if they know I ordered the death of an adventurer just to vent my anger, it’ll become even worse. I’ll leave it to the reliable Sebastian.
[Ojou-sama has a short temper, so please remain calm. I don’t know when that adventurer will leave this town.]
[I know that…]
He has to go out and ready preparations for a while. …When he comes back, I’ll have to have the maid tidy up the room…
The next day, the gatekeeper I bribed rushed over here and gave me the report of that adventurer leaving the town. It was unexpectedly fast.
According to him, it seems he has some companions, but they are just a girl and other children. They are no match for Sebastian.
[What should I do with his companions? They are likely to be witnesses, for sure…]
It goes surprisingly smoothly. I don’t have a problem dealing with them to vent my anger, as well.
[Sebastian can use <Space Magic> to bring me all of their heads.]
<Space magic> isn’t like an item box. It can “Store” the corpse. An item box, on the other hand, was not designed to store a corpse.
[It is in bad taste…]
[It’s fine. I won’t be satisfied if I don’t see them with my bare eyes.]
Sebastian doesn’t reject it, either.
[Oh, hey! I will take that, too!]
It’s his favorite sword from when he was an adventurer. To be honest, it’s wasteful to use this treasure for assassination.
[He is an adventurer who defeated Dorg. I have to take this to make sure.]
[Coat it with poison, if you want to ensure it.]
This is an assassination, after all. Using poison is acceptable.
[I’m sorry. I was called the “god of death”, and I assassinated my targets with surprise attacks or attacks from the dark. Consequently, my meager pride won’t allow me to use poison.]
Come to think of it, I’ve never heard about that, at all.
Chi, didn’t I say it’s acceptable to use poison?
[Understood, but finish them quickly, okay? I can’t calm my irritation down, at all.]
I could calm myself down yesterday, but my irritation from then has returned. It isn’t a proper state of mind.
[Understood. Please wait for a while.]
As Sebastian says that, he mounts the horse that was prepared beforehand.
[Then, I’m going.]
[Yeah, I leave it to you.]
My irritation will calm down if I see that adventurer’s head.
One hour has passed, but Sebastian hasn’t returned. Since the other party is traveling on foot, shouldn’t he have caught up to them by horse a long time ago?
Damn it! My irritation is over the limit. Don’t tell me he couldn’t find them? Chi, I should have had someone follow them.
It’s now evening, but Sebastian still hasn’t come back.
[Don’t tell me, he was defeated?]
Sebastian’s ability is probably the best in this town. I don’t think he will be defeated. My plan is still perfect, after all.
But, I don’t know the reason why he is so slow. In fact, I never thought about this, at all.
Suddenly, a bad premonition is rising up in me. I told him to kill that adventurer, but it’s possible that he will be killed instead. Thinking that Sebastian is lost calms me down, as there is no point in getting irritated.
Sebastian is only one who has been supporting me since I lost my parents and became the head of my family. When I calmed down, I realized that I just have to give an order to someone important to me. I lost my important person from my outburst of anger. Damn it! I want to hit myself for losing my temper.
[That’s right! I must search for Sebastian!]
It is possible that he won but was injured badly and can’t move. In that case, I have to help him as fast as possible… But it is too dangerous to leave the town at night alone, there is someone who is bearing a grudge against me. The private soldiers are unreliable. If I send a big force to search for Sebastian, I might suffer the consequences.
[That’s right! Let’s contact the guild master.]
Excluding Sebastian, the guild master is the strongest person in this town. I will feel safer if he agrees to escort me. Beside, it seems he is on the good terms with that adventurer, so it is unlikely that someone will interfere with while I’m with him.
I get ready and go to the guild quickly. I go to request window and ask the receptionist girl to meet with the guild master.
A few minutes later, the guild master came.
[Sebastian is missing!]
I declare that when the guild master shows up.
[What? Sala…Sebastian is missing… How?]
[At the time of repurchase…]
I suddenly remembered that I can’t give him a detailed explanation. I can’t tell him that I want him to help look for Sebastian because I sent him to kill someone, and he might have been defeated. When I think about what Sebastian said, I realize that if I do that, I’m going to ruin myself. The escort request is 100% failure. It will also be a failure if that adventurer is still alive. The latter case is worse.
[No… It is nothing.]
My mental state isn’t normal. I need to think about an excuse, but nothing comes up at all. I can’t withdraw if that has happened.
For now, a private soldier is the only choice. Another choice is to abandon Sebastian.
[I have to gather private soldiers, arm them and prepare to leave!]
I ordered the housemaid when I came back to the mansion.
[I will take a rest in the room. Call me when they are ready!]
Since I ran to the guild, I’m physically and mentally tired. I will take a rest for a little while.
Have the preparations been finished? There was a knock on my room’s door, but I didn’t hear anyone’s voice. Why? It can’t be helped, so I start walking towards the door. Was I too fatigued? My body feels awfully heavy. Damn it! You should tell me if the preparations are done already.
[Who is there? Are the preparations finished?]
There is nobody on the other side of the door, so I look around to the left and right.
On the right side, I see someone who looks like Sebastian collapsed there. Why has Sebastian collapsed like that? Don’t tell me, he managed to return to mansion with all of his injuries?
I run over to him immediately. However, each step is so heavy, and my legs get tangled up with each other after a few steps.
The floor is closer.
When I felt the impact with the ground, it felt as though death was imminent. Was I to be hit in a bad place? There is no way I can endure this. Ehh? There is someone standing next to Sebastian…
