343 Girls and the Kingdom of Miga (1)

 I entered the land of the Kingdom of Migga.
 ...... To be honest, that fact also made me feel strange.

 I fled the place with the beastmen.
 This is the first time I have ever set foot in the kingdom of Migga, and from the point of view of the beastmen, this country is a place with deep ties.

 Oh, you have a sister in this place.
 I have a sister in this place. She's related to me by blood, but she's not family.

 Just the thought of meeting my sister makes me nervous.
 And as usual, I don't feel bad at all when I set foot in the Kingdom of Migga.

 --My instincts and feelings as a child of the gods tell me that the Kingdom of Migga is not an enemy.
 However, even if I don't have bad feelings about the whole country, and even if Hiccup Migga, the king, doesn't do anything, I don't know about the rest.

"Okay, let's go for it.

 I say, trying to keep my spirits up.

 Gaius was standing next to me, listening to my words and laughing.
 I was glad to see Gaius laughing, since he had looked so uptight earlier.

I'll do my best. I'll do my best.

 We both nodded at each other.

 While I was talking with Gaius, the adults around us were looking at us with smiles on their faces.

Let's go to the capital of the Kingdom of Migga. In order to meet the King of Migga, we need to go to the capital, even though it's dangerous.
 And first of all, we need to keep a low profile. The purpose of this trip is to save the beastmen in Nilsi's village. We don't want anyone other than the king of this country to know about our village.
 And you, Suzy, please don't let anyone know that you are an elf. I don't think you'll find any elves here in the Kingdom of Migga.

 We nodded at Ran's words.

 We're heading to the capital of the Kingdom of Migga.
 The capital of the Kingdom of Migga is a good distance from here. If we were to strengthen ourselves with magic and run or fly, we might be able to get there quickly, but that would be a conspicuous act.

 Even the beastmen are not a natural part of the Kingdom of Migga, so they should keep a low profile.

 That's why it's up to us, the humans, to talk to the people of the Migga Kingdom and gather information.
 Mr. Ran said with a slightly wicked look on his face that it would be better for me to talk to them if I could, so that the people of the Kingdom of Migga would be caught off guard and tell me more.

 Apparently, children are quite talkative when you talk to them.
 But it's true that I'm more likely to talk to a child who's smaller than me, or who's smiling, than to someone who's sulking.
 As for me, though, I tend to make judgments based on a certain sense as a Shinto child.

 We arrived at a village.
 It was a small village near the forest. There were no beastmen in the village. The king of Migga, Hiccup Migga, had freed the slaves. That's why I heard that there are some beastmen living in the capital.

 But the people in the village looked down on the beastmen.
 It made me feel a little sick, but Mr. Ran said, "If you've been thinking like that for a long time, you won't be able to change your way of thinking right away.

 Incidentally, I entered the village only as a human.
 The reason I entered the village was because I didn't know how different races would be treated in the village of Migga Kingdom. ...... But when I heard him say this, I thought it might have been a good idea for us to enter the village alone.

I think the new way of thinking has not yet penetrated to the remote areas. In the first place, even in King's Landing, not everyone accepts the idea of treating different races as human beings. That's why we need to act carefully.
 But it doesn't mean that people who think like this are bad. They have been taught to think this way as a matter of course. Basically, the people believe what they are taught from above. It is natural for them to think it is right, without any chance of feeling any discomfort.
 What the king of Migga is trying to do is a difficult path. I've never had a chance to see him do this, but I'm inclined to believe the King of Migga. I wouldn't have been in the same position to do this.

 These were the words of Mr. Ran as he left the village.

 He said that if he were in the same position, it would be difficult for him to try to overthrow Hiccup Migga, take the throne, and fundamentally change the way he thought.

 I don't know about that.
 I think so, but I don't know what it is like to be royalty, and I don't know what it's like to have to kill your family.
 But I do know that it takes determination.

 The king, Hiccup Migga, is acting with great determination.
 ...... is a prince I saw only once. He is now a king.

 I am filled with such a feeling of wondering what kind of person he is.

 --The girl and the kingdom of Migga.
 I'm sure you'll be able to understand why.
