World Teacher – Chapter 12

Late, again… have I ever been not late? Anyway, I’m sorry guys but here it is, finally….
I changed the name of the Aldorado continent to the Adroad continent. That’s how it’s supposed to be written from what I’ve seen. (Eldorado does sound better though)
Oh, and, sometimes you may notice that I make Lior use a more simple language than the others, that’s because it’s the way it is in the story, he’s an old-man but he’s not a noble nor is he cultivated.
About the radar power (search), I switch between the word “signals” and “presences” but it’s the same, it just means that it detects living things.
Last thing, the author edited the ninth chapter so I fixed the changes in my translation, you should check it out since it’s completely changed.
Also, chapter edited by Guest04
Well, here is chapter 12 of World Teacher, enjoy!

Fateful meeting

I just thought of something.

Lior became a teacher to bring up an opponent who could fight him on equal footing, but why did I become a teacher in my previous life?

Well, officially, it was because my work became hard in terms of age and I decided to pass the torch to the next generation, but my real motive was a certain girl.

I suppose it was when I dismantled some illegal human trafficking network.
I sneaked in its facilities and crushed it, but there were many unidentified children inside. Thus, the organization I belonged to investigated them and they were either returned to their families or sent to orphanages, but there was a girl who didn’t leave my side. Though I rescued the child right before she got experimented on, I looked like a hero to her at the time and she became abnormally attached to me. She didn’t have any parents either, and since she didn’t want to part from me no matter what, I decided to take care of her.

I couldn’t just take her and go, so I entrusted her to a woman who I could trust and the girl was surprisingly obedient. When I took her, she seemed satisfied. Although we could hardly meet because I was busy with work, the girl was glad.
One day, she started to say that she wanted me to teach her about my work.
She wanted to help me with it. She said that she wished to become like the dreamy hero who saved her. My work wasn’t actually such a pretty thing, I was a hitman. Even though I showed her the dirty part of it, the girl’s will didn’t change. At the sight of such a girl, I thought that I should retire and become a teacher since I had reached that age. She had the habit of calling me father sometimes but the girl became my first student.
Though I became a teacher for such a trivial reason, I gradually became happier as I witnessed the growth of the pupil. I grew to like teaching and that seems unchanged regardless of my reincarnation.

My motive for becoming a teacher was something along those lines.

And once again, a similar situation has approached.

It’s been a year since I met Fia and Lior.
I turned six year old.

I finished my morning training, and I’m exploring the Adroad continent today.
Lately, I stopped searching for people from the sky, and my exploration is often done by walking around in the forest. I attack the incoming monsters, making them scatter in order to find edible plants but mainly to train as an adventurer.

【”Oh, found a matsutake~】(Sirius)

It’s not the matsutake of my previous life but rather a mushroom that resembles it. Though it has an official name, I call it a matsutake mushroom since I’m used to that. It’s rare and delicious as it is so I wonder if I should add it in today’s dinner.
As I harvest it with a pleased face, I start feeling hungry, partly from thinking about dinner. It’s almost noon according to the sun. I sit on some random rock, and I take out a lunch box as I fold my hands. (EDN: He’s praying.) Since the other three make lunch at random, I wonder who it was today.

【”So it’s Elena today.”】(Sirius)

With multicolored side dishes inside, it’s also packed with a vegetarian sandwich and meat, which is my favorite food. Since my growth advanced remarkably recently, so did my appetite. Last year, I’d have gotten a full stomach from half of this, but I can now wolf down the whole thing.

【”Mhm, delicious. Oops, I have to call her.”】(Sirius)

I gather a small amount of mana, and I fire it while aiming at Elena in the distance.

【(A-yes…. Canis Major here. There is nothing abnormal in my current lunch. It’s also delicious today. Over)】(Sirius)

That wasn’t a monologue just now.
It’s my newly developed spell,【(Call)】. When you aim it at a specific party, the spell delivers them the words by firing mana in a similar way to that of radio waves. As for the receiving side’s impression, it seems that they hear it in the form of a strange sensation that resounds directly in their brain. It’s certainly very convenient, like a cell phone, but only I can use it so it’s just a one-way traffic from here.
However, though I say radio waves, there is a high chance of it leaking to other people with a similar wavelength on its way, because it’s still mana after all. Therefore, I call myself by code names and make sure not to say the other party’s name.
Though there seems to be a wind spell that sends out the voice on the wind and fires it in the distance,【(Call)】is still in the testing stage. Even so, I use it regardless of that since receiving my voice gives a sense of security to Elena. I have to experiment it in a place crowded with people sometime and check its maximum range.

I finish my one-way report and resume my lunch. Mhmm, I wonder how can such an exquisite taste be brought out. I couldn’t reproduce the same flavor though I tried copying it several times. It seems my tastes are well known.
Having finished 80 percent of the lunch box, I move my 【(Search)】spell because I feel a presence from the depths of the forest. Since I perceive something approaching at a high speed with the radar in my brain, I interrupt my meal and put my lunch box away as the the thing comes in sight.
With limbs as elegant as a horse’s and an abnormally fat body, it’s a strangely unbalanced beast that has two big, splendid horns. If I remember correctly, I believe it was called a Beonifang.
It appears that I’m his target, he sets in a ferocious body blow while pointing his two horns toward my direction.

【”It’s so dull… Oh?”】

His speed is terrific, but the impressive frontal attack is easy to dodge. I slash at him as we pass each other, but the sword’s cut is shallow, it’s to the degree where it just left a small wound on his face. Because of his hard skin, it seems like it’s impossible to kill him without strengthening my power.
As I think that, the monster returns and approaches once again so I avoid it. Earlier, I evaded horizontally, but I do it upward this time. I’ll try to kill him quickly, before the monster starts struggling, by landing on his back rather than the ground.

【”How’s this!”】

I stab the middle of his forehead near the brain with the mithril knife I got when I met Fia. As expected of mithril, the knife sinks with hardly any resistance, the monster trembles only for an instant and his gigantic body crumbles to the ground.

【”This guy’s legs are unusually splendid but are they tasty? Well, it should be alright to just roast them this time, right?”】

This monster has a hard skin that can repel edged tools, it seems that he could face a group of intermediate adventurers as his opponents thanks to his strong body blows, but one can manage just fine by attacking his weak point with a sharp blade. In Lior’s case, I think he would cut him right in half from the front and be done with it.
As I put away the roasted sirloin in my bag without treating the blood, I once again feel a presence from the depths of the forest. I activate【(Search)】 nearly in sync and I get a signal of a similar monster. Although the monster is moving to another direction rather than here, he’s heading toward two presences which I felt before. It can’t be what I think it is… I examine the reaction with a more detailed【(Search)】as I run to the monster. There is no mistaking it, that’s a humanoid presence.
Avoiding the branches, or using them to rebound, I keep sprinting to soar through the forest. I proceed uneventfully without losing any speed at all, and I finally catch sight of the presences.

Right beside a tree broken by the monster’s body blow, there are two fallen and exhausted children. Aiming at those childre, the Beonifang pushes his foot off the ground right before rushing forward.
There is only one thing to do.

【”Dropkiiiick!”】

I dive with a stable strength, and I hammer down with both feet on the side of the monster’s face using a kick that would put a pro wrestler to shame. Since【(Boost)】adds to it, the monster is blown away horizontally and mows down several trees as he goes rolling. I think that wasn’t enough to defeat him, so I keep chase.

【”【(Magnum)】”】

I accurately deliver the decisive blow by shooting the bullet in the rolling monster’s head. Although the head exploded, from what I see, It appears to have been exploded by the kick… or so I think. But, what’s with this? Did the power of the gun magic grow stronger? I feel like it’s stronger than the main family. (TLN:A japanese expression, he’s basically saying it’s overpowered)(EDN: Too powerful, and naturally isn’t allowed.)
I hold that thought back, other monsters might gather because of the blood’s smell, have to get this over with it seems.
LN

The two children who collapsed are beastkins, a boy and a girl.
Their age is about the same as mine, their hair color is silver, they have bushy looking straight tails and wolf-like ears. The girl seems to be older and their looks are similar so I wonder, are they siblings?
However, the pair’s attire is bad. They have a piece of cloth that only hides the essential parts of their thinned skinny bodies which are full of scars and bruises. The most worrying things are the rustic metallic collars around their necks. Their size is way too big and it’s not the kind of accessory that a child would put on at all.
The boy is unconscious, but the girl opens her eyes and faces this way with a blank look of surprise. As I suspect that her gaze is directed to me, the girl pulls herself together while glaring and protecting the boy with her hand.

【”- I… pro-… er-!”】

Has her throat been damaged? Her voice is cracked and I can’t hear it properly.
I’ve seen worn-out people like that in my previous life. Nobody cares for them, they live in the few lawless areas without the country’s blessing, slaves. Without any human rights and the like, all those slaves who were treated like consumable goods and discarded had dead eyes.
However, this girl is different. She’s in a situation where she’s worn-out and can’t fully move her body yet despite that, her eyes show a strong determination.

I…… protect…… little brother.

That was the voice that I managed to pick up from the girl by strengthening my hearing.
As I approach step by step, she tries to escape at the same pace but her body seems to not be listening. One more step. Her body is shaking, she’s completely frightened by me but she doesn’t avert her eyes nor does she separate her hand from her brother. I take another step, the girl is under my eyes. My getting closer while concealing my hand, is that what’s scaring her?
Even so… her eyes aren’t dead.
I bend a little to match her line of sight and I put my hand on the girl’s head while talking slowly.

【”It’s alright. I am not your enemy.”】

I tell her the same words I told the girl from my past who started it all.
Right now, the girl is in a state where she sees enemies everywhere, so I first have to relieve her by making her understand that I won’t harm her at all.

【”You’re protecting your younger brother, aren’t you? You did your best. I’ll help you so please take it easy now.”】

I pat her ruffled hair affectionately. With the girl from my past, I messed it up by doing it in a rough manner, but this time, I try to do it in the same way Elena does it for me. I think it worked, the girl’s vigilance fades away and she simultaneously falls unconscious, shedding a trickle of tears.

Good grief, I still don’t know these children’s true colors but this turn of events is weird.
Children being chased by this kind of monsters isn’t an uncommon thing in this world, no one would blame me even if I leave them like that. Rather, it would become troublesome if I don’t leave them. I am still six year old and there is Elena & co too, thinking about the future, we can’t afford to support two more people.
However, I said that I’d help, they have dog ears but I can’t pretend having picked them up like pets, can I? What would Elena say about that?

As I worry, the surrounding presences increase, being lured by the blood. There is no more time so it can’t be helped.

【”For the time being… hold!”】

Tying the two with【(String)】 and carrying them, I fly away from the place.

【”… And so, I came to borrow you wisdom, old-man. Please do something.”】

I changed location to Lior’s home.
Lior gave me a puzzled look when I came over carrying the two, but he didn’t say anything in particular and prepared a bed. I layed the two on the prepared bed and Immediately got to explaining the circumstances. I consulted him while I was at it since he is an elder.

【”What’s with that? So irresponsible. Even if you ask me to do something, you’re the one who picked them up.”】

Figured as much~. Well, I’ve already decided what to do about it anyway.

【”Even without me having to tell you, didn’t you already make your decision? What the heck are you hesitating about?”】
【”Nothing, it’s just Elena…”】
【”Hahahahaha! The strong man who took me down is frightened by one of his attendants”】
【”Shut up, Elena is scary.”】

It’s a fear that only relatives know. My old self didn’t know it, but that retired old-man wouldn’t know it either. (TLN: I guess parents are scary in their own way, sometimes)
I suppose it’s clear from the flow of the chat, but I made the decision to go back home with these two. I might end up even quarreling with Elena, but I have no alternative to that other than abandoning these fellows.

【”Though It didn’t really bother me, why did you bring them to my place? You simply could have gone directly to your home.”】
【”I sincerely just wanted to borrow your wisdom. But first I want to ask you, are these two slaves?”】

They’re ragged all over and they have those strange collars too. Although I’m almost sure that they’re slaves, I want to hear the opinion of Lior who traveled the world.

【”They’re slaves, no doubt about it. That collar is the most conclusive evidence.”】
【”As I thought. Does this collar have any effects other than its looks? Though I can feel a little mana from it.”】
【”It’s a tool called【(Subjugation collar)】, when a contractor equips it to someone, he takes hold of his life. If the contractor so wishes, It can cause that someone’s body an acute pain, and even if he runs away, the collar keeps emitting mana to transmit his position. To make things worse, that emitted mana comes from the equipped person. As the mana lessen, the person gets gradually exhausted until she eventually dies.”】
【”If it’s true then it will be a problem if we don’t remove it as soon as possible.”】
【”That’s the thing, it seems like it can’t be removed without the contractor’s key. Moreover, breaking it physically can harm the equipped person which is troublesome in various ways.”】 (EDN: It says 道漬け, literally “forcefully take along on a road”, basically, if the collar is harmed, so is the slave.) (TLN:But he stays vague about how it harms the wearer)

Looking properly, I see a keyhole on a part of the collar. It’s nothing complex, just a typical lock made to simply insert a key, however, the mana of the collar is pouring out from there. Is this location being transmitted to the contractor right now?

【”From what I heard, there is a complex magic formation drawn inside the keyhole, this seems to be an intermediate rank collar. Since it takes a lot of time and effort to make, it’s quite expensive.”】(Lior)
【”Doesn’t matter if it’s expensive, I don’t like these kind of things. But is there a way to take it off by breaking it?”】(Sirius)
【”Mhm, maybe I can take the risk and try to slice it off with my sword?”】(Lior)
【”Though I believe in your skill with your weapon, let’s leave that as a last resort. Hold on for now, I want to try out something.”】(Sirius)
【”Oho? I wonder what you’re gonna pull off this time.”】(Lior)

Setting aside the excited old-man standing behind me, should I try with the boy first?

I hold my hand on top of the collar and activate【(Scan)】, a new spell.
This spell passes mana through the target, it’s an investigation spell that depicts the object inside the brain. In my previous life’s terms, it’s x-ray imaging. If【(Search)】is suited for wide-ranged exploration,【(Scan)】is intended to enhance the accuracy by narrowing the general target to the minimum.
The drawback is that it can’t depict it in detail if it’s not at a hand’s distance. I experimented it with magic tools and found that it’s harmless, I also confirmed its safety toward humans by asking Dee to cooperate with his permission.(TLN: So you could have just forced him otherwise, huh?)(EDN: Dee’s his slave *cough* I mean servant.)

Grasping the internal structure of the collar, I redirect the【(Scan)】to focus it on the magical formation. This modified【(Scan)】doesn’t show the internal structure of the object but only shows the inner structure of the mana. Though I don’t understand the meaning of the effects drawn on the magic formation, I can see the source of the mana. If it’s as Lior said, then this collar should have four abilities.
Giving acute pain, absorbing mana, emitting mana, and harming the contracted when breaking.
As expected, looking at the mana formation, four cores are reflected. Among those, two are turned on, I guess that’s the mana absorption and emission. If I somehow deal with the other two, I might be good to go.
I extend two thin【(String)】from my left hand, I intrude them from the keyhole and direct them toward the magic formation. Holding the mana, I whirle it around all over to cover the circumference of the two problematic cores. Confirming that the two are enclosed without a gap, I grip my mithril knife in my right hand and draw it close to the collar.

【”Please forgive me if I fail.”】(Sirius)

I converge the【(String)】to constrict the cores and crush them, at the same time, I slice the collar with the knife. The collar makes a thick *cling* sound and slowly rolls to my feet. As Lior tenses up, I put my hand on the boy’s face.

【”….Breathing confirmed. He’s alive.”】(Sirius)
【”Few…… thank goodness~”】(Lior)

Though it was almost gambling, it seems to have succeeded.

【”You’re amazing as usual. The fellows who broke their collars before ended up bleeding from their whole bodies and dying.”】(Lior)
【”If you know those kind of results, don’t go trying to slice it with your sword!”】(Sirius)
【”I thought that maybe I could slice it while aiming at the magic formation, hahahaha!”】(Lior)

Lior started laughing out loud without any hint of shame. I understand his reasoning but his attitude is pissing me off, however, there are wounded people before me so I don’t voice my thoughts.
I follow by breaking the girl’s collar and examining it, but it’s just junk that doesn’t emit anything now since it’s not absorbing its target’s mana. Knowing its magic formation in detail might be useful for something, I wonder if I should take it home.

【”Well then, now that I removed their collars, what’s gonna happen to these two?”】(Sirius)
【”A collar is a slave’s identification. Since there should be nothing that can remove it except if the master opens it, you can think of them as civilians.”】(Lior)
【”How does one become a slave to in the first place? I could understand if they were criminals, but these two are too young to be criminals.”】(Sirius)
【”Normally, criminals are the ones made to fall into slavery, but These two were definitely kidnapped. Because their species is rare around here.”】(Lior)
【”Rare huh, do you know it?”】(Sirius)
【”This silvery hair and wolf tail…. they’re probably from the silver-wolf tribe.”】(Lior)

The silver-wolf tribe.
They have a silver wolf’s ears and tail and they are one of the numerous beastkin tribes. Their total population is small, and their combat efficiency is generally high, it’s a unique tribe that lives deep in the forest. Though they also have a lot of rough and short-tempered people among them, It seems to be a race that thinks about its companions and cherishes the bond between the tribe and the family.

And that’s it, the source is the all-purpose Alberto’s travel diary.

【”It doesn’t matter if they are rare or whatnot. These two aside, I’m the one with a problem here.”】(Sirius)

What should I tell Elena?
【(I want to keep it, I want to keep it! I want to keep this slave~! )】 Should I throw a childish tantrum? No, not gonna happen.

【”At worst I can take care of them.”】(Lior)
【”Though I appreciate the sentiment, this is my issue.”】(Sirius)

I personally decided to pick up these fellows. That’s enough, I need to steel myself.
I trigger【(Call)】and aim at Elena, thinking about what I should say.

【(Hmmm….. North Star here. I’m coming back now because I picked up two children due to certain circumstances. Please prepare a bed in the guest room, over.)”】(Sirius)

I report what I have to say and take a deep breath. Since I can’t see the other party’s response, this one-way phone calling is scary. I want to improve it somehow.

【”Well then, maybe I should hurry back home. Old-man, do you have big bags or something like that?”】(Sirius)
【”I do indeed, but what are you going to put there?”】(Lior)
【”I want to put the pair there. It’s a wild movement prevention and it will block some of the wind pressure too.”】(Sirius)
【”I see. Here, you can have these.”】(Lior)
【”Thank you. I’ll do this in return”】(Sirius)

I push what little remains of the lunch box into the old-man’s mouth. It’s a very rude move, but this delicious dish is justice. The fact is that the stuffed by force old-man is smiling. (TLN: Light Yagami got replaced by a sandwich)

【”You’re so lucky to have an attendant whose cooking is this delicious. Well, you make delicious meals as well. Won’t you make me some next time?”】(Lior)

Since I’ve been in his care here several times, I occasionally cook a meal so that we can eat it together.

【”I’m not your attendant old-man, but I’ll do it if I feel like it.”】(Sirius)

Holding a bag, in which the two are wrapped up, under each arm, I rush home thinking that I look like a kidnapper.

――― Noel ―――

My name is Noel.
I’m one of the lovely attendants who serve master Sirius-sama. Because Sirius-sama is still a six-years-old child, we support him-…… is what I want to say, but Sirius-sama is so amazing that he doesn’t really need support.

Using magic at merely three years old, he now keeps developing new spells and has the ability to have a match with Dee who’s an adventurer and win. Furthermore, he holds knowledge far beyond ours and he makes the best use of it everyday just for our sake, he’s a man of great ability.
On top of that, he’s a great cook. He created various dishes never seen before and we’re delighted whenever he introduces one. Especially so for the hmm..mayonnez and pouding which were revolutions. The first time I tasted it I was stunned for a while wondering how can such a delicious dish be. I feel happy whenever I recall it…… oops! I’m digressing.

However, that Sirius-sama’s attribute is colorless. The attribute of the misfortune which is ridiculed as useless by the world. Though I don’t know who came up with that idea, I think that person was mistaken because it’s definitely not useless. On the contrary, we were shown that we’re the more incompetent ones.

He’s such a flawless person, but right now, he’s scratching the back of his head with a very nervous face. It’s my first time seeing Sirius-sama this flustered. It’s so cute~ unlike his usual manliness.
This is the guest room and there are two beastkins laid on the bed. How did it turn out like this? Well, it was this afternoon.

When I finished eating my lunch, I was asked to clean the guest room by Elena-san. I quickly finished cleaning and Sirius-sama came back home looking for Elena-san in order to report to her.
I headed to the entry hall while thinking that he had come back early today, he had been holding two big bags as well. At the time, I had thought that maybe the contents of the bags were some new ingredients. I tried asking about the contents of the bags while a little excited, but he avoided the question and didn’t answer. When Elena-san and Dee-san came toward the guest room, Sirius-sama made up his mind and took out the contents of the bags.

【”What the…”】(Noel)

Dee-san and I froze still. Why ragged children? And they were two as well. Only Elena-san was unfazed, when she confirmed the children’s state, she hurled instructions at us.

【”Dee, bring some medicines and hot water. Noel, bring a change of clothes for two people.”】(Elena)
【”Ah, Yes.”】(Noel)
【”Yes.”】(Dee)
【”Sirius-sama, since I’ll ask for the reason later, put the two people on the bed for now.”】(Elena)
【”I understand.”】(Sirius)

And like that, each one of use filed his role and the basic medical treatment of the two soon came to an end.
Though he still has a nervous expression, Sirius-sama starts telling us about the reason for this. Long story short, he found the two being attacked by a monster while strolling in the forest and he defeated that monster to protect them. Which one did you kidnap first? Though that thought crossed my mind, Sirius-sama isn’t that kind of person. I’m a beastkin yet he doesn’t discriminate against me and he’s such a great person that he became friends with elf-san and Goutsurugi-san.
However, these children’s attire, I’m familiar with it.

【”Apparently, these two people are slaves.”】(Sirius)

Its only natural that I’m familiar with it. Because even I was a slave.
Though I was saved before the worst happened, these children might have been made to experience worse things than me. However, what’s going on? Doesn’t it require a collar to be a slave?

【”I broke their collars, but I thought that I should treat them because their injuries were too severe and so I brought them along.”】(Sirius)
【”【”【”You broke the collars?!”】”】”】(Elena & Noel & Dee)

What does that mean?! Breaking that collar should be lethal. I’ve seen it happen over and over again. Since we’re too surprised, he tells us the destruction method.
Yes, we learned how absolutely impossible it is for us to do it.

【”I understand your motives. At any rate, we’ll let them sleep until they wake up.”】(Elena)
【”Please do. I’ll go prepare a meal for the weakened pair.”】(Sirius)
【”Noel, can I rely on you to wait-and-see, please? Because they’ll be less vigilant if they see you, a beastkin, when they wake up.”】(Elena)
【”Yes, Of course!”】(Noel)
【”Sirius-sama, let me help you.”】(Dee)
【”No, Dee, you must stay here with Noel to act as a liaison in case something happens.”】(Sirius)
【”I understand.”】(Dee)

When Sirius-sama and Elena-san leave the room, it suddenly becomes quiet. Dee-san is not a talkative person, and I don’t feel like telling a useless story. I put a chair besides the bed and I seat in a position from which I can see the faces of both of the two. Is Dee restraining himself? He’s sitting at a slightly distant position.

I keep silently looking at the faces of the two for a while.
Nevertheless, they’re in a really bad condition. They have scars from being whipped, bruises from being forcibly tied up and and many fresh wounds. I too received that treatment in the past, my body still shivers whenever I recall that.
Though my dignity as a woman wasn’t scathed to avoid reducing my selling price, it still was a terrible time. If I hadn’t been saved by Aria-sama that time, how would I have ended up?
Scary… I’m very happy now, so why am I trembling so much despite that?

【”Noel.”】(Dee)

Dee comes and taps my shoulder. Though he has his usual expressionless face, I can see that he’s worried for me. Since he knows my past, I’m sure he wants to tell me to not think too much about it.

【”I’m all right.”】(Noel)
【”… okay.”】(Dee)

That’s right, I’m different now. My wounds and bruises have already disappeared, and I’m happy from being surrounded by everyone, aren’t I? Let’s think about these children for now. Well then, what should I tell them when then wake up?

It’s all right, you’re safe now… that’s too common, right?
Snap outof it you scum! … that’s the wording that Sirius-sama used before, but it feels wrong somehow.
You guys are lucky… but I can’t just suddenly say that.

However, I really do think that these children are lucky. Their becoming slaves surely was unfortunate, but they were saved by Sirius-sama. If it’s them, they can spend their life smiling much like I am now.
But Aria-sama and Sirius-sama really are mother and son. They both saved beastkin slaves.
We observe attentively the state of the two While having Dee-san make tea. I notice that it’s time to prepare for dinner, but I don’t see any changes in the two. I think that it’s alright since they’re breathing and I suspect that they might wake up soon.
As I wonder if I should report to Sirius-sama, someone knock at the door.

【”Hey, It’s me. Open.”】(Sirius)

Sirius-sama came just at the right time. When Dee-san opens the door, a delicious smell fills the room. In addition, Sirius-sama’s hand is holding a pan, the smell seems to come from there. Aaah, it’s mouth-watering~.

【”… Want to taste it?”】(Sirius)
【”Isn’t this the two’s share?”】(Noel)
【”I made a little too much so it’s alright. However, it’s made for the weakened ones therefore I thinned out the flavor.”】(Sirius)
【”Then, I’ll accept your kind offer.”】(Noel)

Sirius-sama saw right through me. I take thin light-brown soup without any ingredients inside and pour it in a cup. Yes…. the taste certainly is light~. However, the non persistent rich smell pleases the nose and above all, the flavor is gentle. It slowly spreads in the stomach and pleases the spirit…… something like that.

【”Sirius-sama, please teach me the recipe”】(Dee)

Cooking also runs in Dee-san’s blood so there is no way he wouldn’t clamour. This certainly is the best for a weakened person. I’ll have him teach me too afterwards.

【”…… aaa…… uuu”】(Girl child)
【”Ah!?”】(Noel)

While we’re complimenting the soup, the girl wakes up. Was she lured by the smell?
Anyway, the beginning is essential so I have to greet her gently. It’s natural to be frightened when waking up to a stranger, mhm.
Calm down, don’t panic, you only have to say the words you thought of a little while ago. Easy as pie.

【”Hmmm… You alright? You’re really lucky, aren’t you? You scum!”】(Noel)

Huh? Did I mix it up?

  1. It’s way simpler to pick the lock than to disable a trap. I don’t know why he didn’t do that instead, especially since the guy was a super spy/fixer/snakeeater in a previous life.

    There’s a reason why back doors are terrible ideas in cybersecurity. It’s a specifically engineered weakness that anybody can use once they know the trick of it. Literally the path of least resistance through the security.

      1. Even though it’s always nice to see a release, i think it’s better to handle RL problems first. If people can’t wait two or three more days for a release, because your busy, they have no right to reading the LN in the first place.

        I live by the law of give and take, the way this is setup, all were doing is taking. So just do whatever you want, i’m already happy to know someone is taking time out their life to Translate.

  2. I think it’s pretty cool how you’re teaching yourself Japanese,while translating an awesome novel. I’m probably gonna come here not just for the novel, but to see your progress on learning Japanese as well. It’s always fun watching someone evolve, no matter what it is their doing. Keep doing what you’re doing man, it’s very inspiring.

  3. Y’all need to take a chill pill and just wait for the release. I am here just waiting and silently thanking the translator, why everyone is like running back and forth with F4.

    1. No idea. I prefer F5. XD

      But seriously, I don’t think it is strange to see some impatience when there has only been about 1 chapter a month since new years.

      Personally I don’t really mind. I am used to waiting much longer for things anyway, and am just happy that Defiring plans to continue despite obviously being busy.

      1. Yea, I understand the fact that it is taking a long time, but if people can wait for one chapter of a magna for a month, then we can wait for this too.

      1. (little too much homo) No, let’s shake hands….. actually, I’m pretty sure you did some nasty things with your hands, so I’ll just wave from a distance

      2. Yeah, now I think that even waving hand is not so much of a good idea, let’s just- Let’s just nod, yeah, that’s good, you can’t make nodding seem perverted

      3. hey, after checking comment down below i found ch.13 and 14,
        one in Paste Bin and other in Google Drive, is that mean you’re doing 15 or maybe re-make with your own translation?
        (13 is ok but 14 is sub-par…)

    1. Nobody did chapter 13 and nobody asked for my permission or whatever, some dudes did mtl but if I did mtl you’d have a chapter a day even when I’m busy, however, mtl quality is low and I’m doing this to learn japanese, maybe if I put some donation system in the future or whatever I’ll start focusing on speed, but now is not the time

      1. Started translating chapter 14, mostly to amuse myself while unemployed, bored and feeling like my Japanese bachelor is wasting away after years of disuse. Might put it up for people to read if I even manage to finish it (cause jesus these suckers are long…) unless you’d rather I don’t. In that case I’ll just send you whatever I end up with and hope you can get some use out of it as a bad second opinion.

      2. No, I don’t care who does what, I’ll go at my pace, seriously people, I’m doing this for free, you’re not gonna pressure me by posting the same chapter, I have nothing lost from that, think about it a second *sigh*

    1. I feel like I get it, but then again I might be called a pervert if I enonciate it. I don’t really get your question, are you talking about how many people are in my head? ’cause there are way too many, and if you’re talking about how many are on the website, there are a lot of readers but the ones who hangout here account to 10 or 20 max

      1. No it’s not, I’m doing it but it’s not finished, c’mon… I’ll try to go fast though, this night will be spent a 100% on chapter 14… in your timeline, this night means tomorrow night since it’s 4am here and I just woke up

    1. it’s been 4 days, not two months, but that seems too hard for you to understand, maybe if you weren’t so much in a hurry, yo’d have known that, and if no one is translating, it’s because no one wants to, I’m stopping nobody from doing, anyone can do it and I don’t mind, also, the one doing chapter 13 is Nexus, not me, so maybe you don’t deserve it, but that’s the fact

      1. That’s pure MTL, isn’t it? Well, it’s understandable I guess, but the problem with world teacher is that it’s hard to MTL without making lose its meaning…here, a little trailer of chapter 14 http://pastebin.com/jGefBZmS see the difference? You have to train in order to understand not only the meaning but also the purpose of a sentence.

  6. have you ever given thought to recording your screen while translating? using it like a progress bar… maybe stream it on something like twitch?…. not saying that you have to show your face or talk into a mic or anything like that… btw is the chinese wuu pouty thing a feminine thing or just that obscure do you know?

    1. Why would I do that? My translating isn’t all that entertaining ya know, it’s just me, typing on a keyboard, replacing words with other words, I did think of doing it to show the process but now I should rather focus on the actual chapters ><

      1. I can read and speak fluently French, english, Arabic fosha and Derdja. I can also speak a little japanese, it’s enough to translate but not enough to hold a proper conversation, I learnt some Spanish back in time but that was a quicky and I forgot most of it ><

      1. Well, both since my japanese is far from perfect, but rather than MTL, when I don’t understand a word, I search examples of sentences that use it in order to get the meaning.

  7. hey defiring,

    For this conversation,【”A collar is a slave’s identification. Since there should be nothing that can remove it except if the master opens it, you can think of them as civilians.”】(Lior)

    won’t it make more sense if you put after the collar is removed behind civilians?

    Just a suggestion ^^

      1. Hello Defiring, thanks for all your hard work so far.

        I wonder how the stories going to turn out. im guessing the scumbag dad will come later and want the former slave siblings then thats when the … poo really hits the fan. This is my guess and I kinda hope im correct.

        how is the next chapters timeline looking? Im in no way rushing you or demanding an update, id just like a rough guess of when you think you will be done so i dont have to check 4-5 times a day.

      2. There’s a total of 102 chapter as of April 20, so exactly 90 chapters he has to go through to catch up, and the guy uploads like, every 3 days.

    1. actually i think its fairly smart, in order to keep the kids from being too overwhelmed by the situation she is treating them as they expect to be treated. at the very least she will be able to use the slaves conditioning to obedience to make them eat and gain strength.

      1. Well, there was a teaser somewhere around, go to the “about the translation” page and ctrl + f, write “you scum” and look for the right comment…. by the way, there is a fake chapter I made, ignore that
