179 the request of a marquiscy

 I said in a voice that did not hide my surprise. After all, she's much stronger than me, and she's carrying my custom-made shortsword. It's not like I'm going to fall behind those guys.
I don't know how it happened, though.
I'm sure it wasn't a normal battle.
In a small group, maybe. If it's a small group, I don't know. If it's a big group, I don't know.
Oh, ......
 It's hard for a single hero to defeat an entire army. Maybe that was the situation. But that's not the point.
But if there were enough troops to capture him, he'd stand out, but we don't have that information.
 That's right. If that's the case, there's no way Camilo won't hear about it. He was even aware of this revolution.
Was it covered up?
Maybe. Or there was some other factor.
 I groaned and crossed my arms. He's just a customer, but he's also one of the few people I know in this world. I wish I could do something about it, but I'm only a blacksmith.

That's why I'm telling you this.
 Camilo leaned forward as he said this.
"At the request of the Marquis. "The Marquis wants me to send someone who won't look suspicious if he goes to the Empire to rescue her. And there's only one person I can think of who might be able to do that.
"...... me?
 Camilo nodded.
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing and how you're going to do it.
"I see.
 The only question now is whether I'll take it or not. I glanced at the others and they were looking at me with a "you're going to do it" look on their faces. You guys are so rude.

All right.
 Sighing, I reply to Camilo.
"Thanks for everything.
No problem. It's not ...... my usual job, but Helen is no stranger to me.
 Besides, with the Marquis' request, it would be hard for Camilo to say "No". I think it's safe to say that the Marquis will now be completely aware of anything out of the ordinary, regardless of the upper limit of blacksmithing skill.
 If that happens, I'll just act on the assumption that it will be as profitable as possible.

 After that, I had a meeting with Camilo to go to the Empire. Of course, the sooner the better, so we decided to head there as early as tomorrow. The cover story is about a blacksmith who works alongside a peddler, doing various repairs.
 If we want to follow this story, we will need a simple furnace, which Camilo will provide. The carriage we took to the city was also Camilo's, and we met up with him in the same way as when we rode into the city before.
 The details will be explained on the way. They have a rough idea of where Helen is being held, but we'll have to find out where she is, and the details of the rescue mission will have to be worked out after we find her.

 That's all I said, and we left Camilo's store in a flurry. Now, it's time to get busy.
