17-It's a little bit.

The next day.
 We're going to do our job as usual.
 The three of us from the 5th platoon, including Fam, guarded the city walls and patrolled the streets.
 Obviously, there was not enough manpower. The three of them were not enough. We need to get Fam out of here as soon as possible.

...... I'm so sleepy.

 In the middle of his rounds, Spinoza let out a loud yawn.

I'm usually asleep at this time. It's been a long time since I've had any alcohol in my system.
If you're going to say that at night, don't say it during the day.

 How depraved have you been living your life?

I don't know how you do it, patrolling the streets.
It's not safe in this town. Disputes are happening all over the place. We're the guards and we have to intervene.

 And," I said.

"We can't afford to have another robbery like the last one. We have to keep an eye on the whole city.
"Why don't we just beat up anyone who looks suspicious? That way we don't have to think about it every time.
That's not a good idea. What if it's a false accusation?
Just say you're sorry then. Say you're sorry.
You can't just beat up a guy and then say, "I'm sorry." ......

 I sighed in the face of Spinoza's brainy thinking.

"Ah... Work dari. I want to go home. Seriously.

I'm happy to be working with you again, Spinoza," Seira said with a saintly smile.
"Hmm. Seira. You've got a lot to be happy about. --I'm going to rub your breasts for you.

 I'm going to rub your breasts for you," Spinoza said, and rubbed Seira's breasts.

What are you doing? What are you doing?
And... I'm just looking at you and I'm getting horny. And I asked you beforehand, didn't I? I asked you to let me rub you.
You just asked me! I didn't agree to that!
That's fine. It's not like it's going away.

 If this guy had been born a man, he would have been sued for s*xual harassment. .......
 The only saving grace in a platoon full of troublemakers was Seira.
 --No, strictly speaking, I think there's something wrong with her clothes. She's in bikini armor. It's not as bad as the rest of them.

I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on here.
"Yeah. Well, according to him, I'm sure he is.
And yet I can't see or feel him at all.
He must be completely obliterated. That's impressive.
But you noticed him yesterday, didn't you, Zeke? That's great! I need to emulate your attention ......!

 When Seira clenched her fists in front of her chest.

 Suddenly, a bow and arrow flew towards my forehead.
 Just like yesterday, I grabbed it with my hand and stopped it.
 I looked ahead and saw Fam on the roof of a building with her bow at the ready.
 A smile appeared on her face and she jumped down.
 She landed like a bird.

"...... Femme. What are you doing?

 I asked, snapping my bow and arrow.

"Oh no. I was observing, and I just wanted to mess with you. But you're very good at it.
If I hadn't, that little tweak would have killed me.
But that's not you, is it?

 Pham said.

"I'm a bit of a bother, you know. If I like someone, I want them to be thinking about me all day long.

 He smiled.

So I'm going to give you a little flirtation every now and then to remind you of me.
Don't people often say you're heavy?
No. No, I've never been called that.
 No, I've never been called that," said Fam.
Because I don't have any friends who would say that.
 I don't know how to react, so please don't.

"You don't have to lay low to mess with us. You can do it while you're working with us.
I'm shy. I'm shy. I'm very careful about how I approach people. I'm not going to work with you out of the blue.

 ...... Don't be shy if you shoot arrows into people's foreheads without question.

"Okay, then. I'll leave you to it.

 Fam said, and disappeared like a shadow. But since he's a shadow, he's always lurking right beside me.

"Mr. Zeke. It's not easy. ......

 She said sympathetically.

"You're sneaking around in the shadows. If you're going to do this, do it head-on," Spinoza muttered to himself.

 After that, Fam started messing with me every chance he got.
 He came after her when she was patrolling the streets, when she was checking the gates, and even when she was eating lunch in the barracks mess hall.
 Just when I was about to let my guard down, they would come after me.
 Each time, I dealt with Fam's attempts to mess with me. Thanks to that, I didn't get hit by a bow and arrow even once.
 Eventually, it continued until the day's work was done.

"Yuck. I'm finally done. Well, let's get this drink on.
"Mr. Zeke. Thank you for all your hard work today. ...... Are you all right, sir? I can stay with you if you want.
No, no. No problem. No problem. Get some rest Seira.

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
 I thought the teasing would end when I finished my duties, but arrows were flying at me at dinner, in the bathroom, and at the toilet.
 I fended them all off.
 Then, after getting ready for bed, I lay down on the bed.
 As I lay on my back, Fam's voice came down from the ceiling.

"That's great. You've managed to stop all my meddling. It's no wonder you're the fastest squad leader in the world.

 I knew you were here.

"I admire your persistence in sticking with me all day long. I'd say you're a talented archer.

 Normally, you'd lose some concentration and let your guard down.
 But she had none of that.
 She was my shadow the whole time.

"Can I ask you something?
What is it?
"I've been watching you all day, and with your ...... defenses, why would I bother to block an arrow?

 Femme said.

You could have ignored my arrows and not gotten hurt. And yet you dealt with every arrow with such care.
Is that because you're proud?
You said the act of shooting the arrows was a tease. Well, I thought it was an insensitive thing to do.

 I said.

I thought that if I didn't take it seriously, you wouldn't be able to take it seriously, so I tried to block all the arrows with all my might.
...... I see.

 Fam smiled.

I knew you were as funny as I thought you were.

 And then he came down from the ceiling.
 The silvery fairy-like figure is revealed.

"Yes. You're worth giving up a part of my life for. Besides--I'd like to get a closer look at you.

 She crawls under my covers.

"What are you doing?
...... I don't really know how to measure the distance between people. That's why I might have come too close too soon.

 Fam muttered in embarrassment.

I'll be measuring the distance between us as we go along.
You'll come to work tomorrow?
Yeah. Good to see you. --Captain Zeke.
