“Greetings, Miss Alfilis, correct?”
The Sister greeted Alfilis with courteous and elegant gestures. Alfilis, not used to the courtesy, replied in hurry,
“Ye, yes, I am. And you are?”
“Please forgive my late introduction, I belong to church Arnelia, my name is Sister Milie. And the man who stands behind me is Holy Knight Albert Phidelity Lazar.”
“Pleased to make your acquaintance.”
The knight standing behind Milie gave Alfilis a simple but courteous bow with his hand on his chest.
“How do you know about me?”
“We received a message from Sister Anorun. Due to an emergency matter which needs to be discussed, we came to pick her up. Though she’s not with you, perhaps she is headed towards the church?”
“Yes, that’s what she said.”
“I see, then we missed each other. If it’s like that, then we will head towards the church. How about Miss Alfilis, do you want to come together with us?”
“I think I should go too, I don’t want us to miss each other either. Ah, and please stop with the ‘Miss’. You can call me without honorifics.”
“Then, Alfilis and please call me Milie. If you don’t mind, may we walk together?”
Towards the smiling Alfilis, Milie also replied with a smile and walked slightly in the front as to guide Alfilis. Signalling the Holy Knight Albert with her eyes, he couldn’t help but to walk further behind. And then because there was no other choice, Alfilis walked beside Milie.
“(Nevertheless this knight doesn’t show any opening.)”
She realized the knight walking behind her was alert of their surroundings. Most likely, anyone with malicious intent who entered a ten meter radius will be cut down without even having the time to blink. The same also applied if Alfilis tried to do something towards the Sister.
“(Despite that, I don’t feel any unpleasant feeling…being vigilant towards the surroundings also has its own trick huh)”
If there was a chance she wanted to ask the knight behind them to have a bout with her. While thinking what might happen if he accepts, she didn’t notice Milie who looked up at her,
“Fufu, are you curious about Albert?”
“Ah, I’m sorry. It is because I thought he’s really a skilled knight.”
“Alfilis is a fencer right? Indeed, even among the holy knight order, knights with Albert’s level of skill is quite rare. Among the fencers I’ve seen until now, he’s the strongest, I think.”
“Oh, so it’s like that?”
Milie laughed happily. Being protected by a knight of this level meant her position in the church is pretty important. And even while trading childish conversations with Alfilis, her intelligence surprised Alfilis. Her way of speaking is mature because of her upbringing, she also knows very well about the situation in the town, the country, trading circulations to the row of jewellery stalls. She even knows trivia about weird shaped dolls.
At first she assumed perhaps all Sisters of Arnelia church were like her, but then she remembered the Sister Anorun, who was very different from Milie.
“Milie knows a lot of things, huh.”
“That’s because I carry the duty of a pilgrim just like Sister Anorun.”
“(I think Anorun only knows well about bars and colloquial languages…perhaps this is difference between human beings? Hm? Now that I think about it, how did she know where I was?”)
I will ask, thought Alfilis as she turned towards Milie.
“We are here.”
Milie said gently. When she noticed, they had already reached Arnelia church.
“For the time being, let’s head inside.”
Milie walked briskly inside, with Alfilis following behind her.
“There’s a Sister who’s currently praying…”
When we opened the door and looked inside, there was a Sister bathed in sunlight, praying single-mindedly without minding Alfilis and co., who were still standing on the doorsteps. In front of the holy woman — Arnelia, the church founder’s statue — she knelt, both hands joined, and continued to mutter words of prayer without the slightest quiver. The Sister’s white robes sparkled as it reflected the afternoon sun as if it was a scene from a famous painting.
And then as if time stopped, Alfilis and co. stood still, until the Sister finished her prayer and turned towards them. Though she had no idea about prayers, looking at the Sister who could pray piously like that, she couldn’t help but to hold some interest. However, when the Sister turned her head…
Because the impression she has right now was far apart from the usual Anorun, and that Alfilis never expected the Sister was her, Alfilis unintentionally let out a hysteric voice.
And upon hearing her voice, Anorun turned toward her,
“Ah, Alfi. I thought you would wait for me at the inn.”
Without even having time to respond, Milie hugged Anorun.
“Onee-sama! Because you haven’t contacted me for a long time, I am sad you know?”
“Eh, Ah…Mi, Milie?”
“Uhh…Did you forget about Milie!? I was always waiting for the day I can talk with you again, Onee-sama! And we still have important matters the church want you to know, so first let’s borrow one of the church’s room. Then, Alfilis, excuse us, I will borrow Sister Anorun for a bit. Albert, don’t be rude towards Alfilis! Well then, we will see you later.”
Saying that quickly, Milie forcefully dragged Anorun, and disappeared beyond the door. What was left there was Alfilis and Albert who were dumbfounded and had no chance to say anything.
“(………………what should I do)”
The silence continued. For Alfilis who has no experience dealing with men, this condition might be severe.
Milie moved quickly while dragging Anorun.
“Where are we going!?”
“There’s no one who will come to the room over there.”
“At least release my hand!”
Although Anorun tried to shake her hand to break free, it didn’t seem Milie’s hand loosened even a bit.
Anorun has the strength enough to blow away an adult man. This time she put more power in her hand, however it was suppressed with an even stronger power.
Because how strong it was, Anorun groaned.
“(–what a powerful arm strength. This is not something a normal human have)”
Anorun’s face turned pale.
After throwing Anorun to the room, finally she released Anorun’s hand. And with a glance from Milie, kachink! The door was locked.
“Kuh, who are you? Among the Sister who can bring a knight with them, there’s no one named Milie! Or rather, that kind of job, there’s no way our church will leave it to a young Sister like you!”
Hearing that, from Milie who hung her head a little, a stifled laugh can be heard.
“Finally we can meet, Sister Anorun?”
On Sister Milie’s face, there was no longer any trace of the lovely smile she had before, in exchange her lips were raised, grinning broadly and showing a wicked smile.
