31-Ice Princess

"What, Deputy Commander Eleanor ......? What the hell are you ...... doing?

 The knight, who had the tip of his sword at his throat, had his face scrunched up.
 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm going to say it.

Do you know what I hate the most?
Or is it someone who lets their emotions get the better of them. ......
No. That's number two.
But you just said it was the first. ......
"A maiden's heart is easily changed, you know.

 Eleanor said, and continued.

The one I hate the most is the one who forgets the pride of a knight and becomes arrogant. A knight must always have a noble heart. Isn't that right?
"Yes. ......
You've forgotten that and acted unprincipledly. ...... You need to be punished for this. I'm going to give you a good beating, so be prepared.
"What, Vice Commander Eleanor's sanction ......?
It is said that those who are subjected to it become like a new person. ......?
Please don't do this!
Don't think you can get away with this. You'll be taught chivalry from the very beginning. I'm not ashamed to be a knight.

 Eleanor broke her gaze from the stunned knights and looked at the boy.

"I heard you were assaulted by a knight.
"What? Uh-huh.

 The boy, and us, were surprised at the scene before us.
 Eleanor bowed deeply to the boy.

I'm so sorry. It's all my fault, I've been out of control. I don't expect you to forgive me for apologizing.

 The second-in-command of the Order apologized to a young boy.
 It was out of the ordinary.

"It's okay. I got some medicine from my brothers in the guard.

 The boy said in a panic.

So you don't have to do it like that. Just keep your head up.
Thank you, ....... 

 Eleanor muttered quietly, and finally raised her head.
 I watched the scene from a distance and said.

She's not like the other knights, apparently.
"Yes. "Yes. Vice Commander Eleanor is a chivalrous person. She is known as the Ice Princess because of her good looks and her skill with a sword.

 Ice Princess. .......
 You're right, it's a bit of a stretch.

But with someone like Eleanor, why would the knights be in such a mess?
Until recently, Eleanor was on a different, longer expedition.
The knights weren't that bad before she left for her expedition. The knights weren't that bad before she went out on her expedition, so I guess they loosened up once she was out of their sight.

 Fam, who was familiar with the situation at the time, made a guess.
 That means she might be a little better from now on. Judging from the previous exchange, it looked promising.

I'm sorry about you guys too. I'm sorry my people caused you so much trouble.

 Eleanor bowed to us as well.

Eleanor bowed to us as well. "You ...... don't have to apologize so much," Seira said.
No. They're my men. If they have done something wrong, the blame is entirely mine as their boss.
"That's not true. It's not a matter of just apologizing, okay?

 Spinoza interrupted me with authority.

If sorry was enough, the world wouldn't need guards and policemen. If you want to show your sincerity, you'll have to give us what we deserve.
"....... That's Spinoza. As soon as he sees an opportunity to take advantage of you, he will take advantage of you. The hyenas would be petrified of you.
Heh. Don't give me that.

 No, I don't think it's a compliment.

"......, does that mean money?
"Well, that's the thing.

 Spinoza laughed.

"Just leave all your money. Go ahead and jump. See?
"I'm afraid I can't do that. All I can do is offer a sincere apology. Paying is just asking for more trouble.

 I'm sorry, but I can't do that.

"...... d*mn. He's a pain in the ass.

 He probably realized that begging would not get him to give in.
 Spinoza seems to have given up early.

"I'm glad you understand. I'm glad you understand. I have a question for you.
"You have a question? Seira said.
"The last defense against the undead. I was on the expedition and I heard that you won the battle without a single casualty.

 Eleanor said.

"And they didn't send out any knights, just the guards. I wonder if you could tell me what kind of strategy you used.
Didn't the Commander say that? Didn't the Order Commander say they might have used a weapon?
No. If there was such a thing, the Order would know about it. And the Guardsmen don't have the budget to make weapons, do they?

 You're right.
 He seems like a better person to talk to than the Commander.

"We don't have a plan," I said.
 I said.
We met them at the gate and defeated them. That's it.
"The four of us," Spinoza added.
"You know what I hate the most about ......?
"The ones who forget their knightly pride and become conceited.
No, I don't. That was before. The answer is a lame joke. How can four men destroy an army of undead?
I don't like it when you say that. Because it's true.
I see. So that's what you guys are insisting on.

 Eleanor muttered to herself and turned to me.

Eleanor muttered and turned to me. Give me a chance to see for myself if what you're saying is true.
