1.4 The Matter About Joke That's Affected Your Life

I will remember forever.... I will do anything.... For a beautiful woman to say such thing, I’m so happy and feels lucky but....

[Come to think of it, I don’t know your name] (Toru)

 I uttered those words unconsciously.

[P-P-P-Please pardon me. I forgot to introduce myself. My name is Aria Eldoraks] (Ria)

(TL : I don't know why, but on the raw it's written as Aria = Eldoraks)

[Aria, Eldoraks-san huh? It’s a difficult name] (Toru)

[Please feel free to call me Ria] (Ria)

Even if you tell me that.... it’s difficult for me to suddenly use a nickname, moreover the other party is such a beauty. Ria-san was able to raise the upper part of her body somehow, it seems it is possible to sit down right now.

[Haa~ Haa~.... Finally, the paralysis poison has disappeared a little] (Ria)

[Really? That’s great] (Toru)

[By the way could Great Wiseman-sam tell me your go sonmei?] (Ria)

[Go Son Mei? Oh did you mean my name?] (Toru)

I’m about to say Toru Suzuki, but I change my mind.
I mean Suzuki name is really disproportionate with Aria Eldoraks name.
To all Suzukis all around Japan please forgive me.
I said so inside my mind.

[Toru... Yeah, my name is Toru] (Toru)

[Toru-sama is it, what a lovely name] (Ria)

I don’t want a woman to call me by my full name.
No, it’s a lie, I want her to call my full name actually.
Once again I apologize to all Suzukis all around Japan.

[Although Toru-sama is a young Great Wiseman, you had develoved so many Artifacts] (Ria)

[Eh? Arti-- what?] (Toru)

Oh, I don’t know if it’s really exist in the real world, but Artifacts is something that often appears inside a game or light novel. Something like a magic item that a Magician made. From her perspective, she must be thinking that all the unfamiliar objects inside this room are Artifacts, although the truth is far different.

That said, my age is too young for a retired Wiseman.
Before the blank look of an angelic face, I have to do something as not to make her suspicious or afraid.

[Well, you see.... because of the old emperor passed his throne.... so.... I....] (Toru)

[Court?] (Ria)

[Ah that’s right. I had become a Court Magician at the age of six] (Toru)

(TL : What Toru said is 旧帝 = kyū tei = Old Emperor but Ria heard is as 宮廷 = kyūtei= Court)

Well actually I did enter an old former imperial university before, but after 2 years I dropped out and right now I continue to live in Tokyo.

[I dropped out.... I mean, I already retired. I immerse myself with magic as a hobby right now] (Toru)

[Is that so?] (Ria)

[Because of that I am still 21 years old] (Toru)

[I see, our age is only differ 3 years] (Ria)

Hmm? Ria-san is 24 years old?
Not that. I thought she was older because of her beautiful and elegant aura but on her smile there was cuteness and childness. If she is not 24 years old, then....

[Could it be Ria-san is 18 years old?] (Toru)

[Yes!] (Ria)

Ho~Ho 18 years old.... that’s great.
I am glad for risking my life to save her. Speaking of which---

[Is your body all right?] (Toru)

[Yes. Because the paralysis poison will disappear little by little after some time] (Ria)

I see. The paralysis poisoning will heal over the time.
It’s important information because my home is connected to a dungeon.
I will remember that. Let’s collect more information out of Ria-san.

[It’s not funny if I am being attacked by a monster under the circumstances. Although I am conscious, I can't move my body.... I am really really scared....] (Ria)

Ria-san’s body is trembling.
Well, it’s scary indeed. She peed herself because of that.
That’s right, because she can move, I will let her to take a bath.

[Wait a moment I will prepare hot water for a bath] (Toru)

[Eh? Bath? Inside a dungeon? Such a thing is....] (Ria)

[Don’t mind, just wait here!] (Toru)

It never crossed on my mind. To think there will be a girl take a bath inside my home just after I moved out. Thank you very much Dungeon.

[Fumu-Fumu. I can reheat the water but’s is not an automatic type appliance. The hot water is ready....] (Toru)

I return to the Japanese-style room.
Ria-san might have been able to walk because the paralysis poison had worn out.

[Eeee!? Why were you kneeling on the ground!?] (Toru)

When I returned to the Japanese-style room, Ria-san had prostated herself moreover she did it to the fullest. Despite her body still numb, why did she exert herself to stay in that position!?

[P-P-P-P-P-P-P-P-Pleeeaaassseee pardon me. I just noticed when you talked about the bath..... what a shameful act I had done....] (Ria)

It seems she just noticed that she had peed herself.

[Well.... it can’t be helped since you can’t go to the toilet because of the paralysis poison, right? In addition I startled you when I tried to help] (Toru)

When I say so, she raises her deep red face but then suddenly groped around the area around my waist.

[It-It’s wet] (Ria)

It’s surprised me, but it explained her sudden behavior that was to confirm whether my clothes are wet.

[Ah.... it’s because I was carrying Ria-san with piggyback] (Toru)

[I had soaked Great Wiseman-sama's clothes with.... such thing....] (Ria)

[Well, it’s okay. There are such time] (Toru)

[THERE ISN'T!] (Ria)

I bet....
I probably will shouting as well if somebody told me the same thing.
She accepted the fact that she was peeing on The Great Wiseman.
She crumbled on the spot and broke into tears.

[Please forgive me for shouting....] (Ria)

[I don’t mind] (Toru)

[Even if you forgive me for soiled your clothes.... I can’t be a bride anymore] (Ria)

Ah.... so that’s a reason for your shouting and crying. Is that some kind of rule in the knighthood?

[It’s okay.... I will take the responsibility] (Toru)

[Eh?] (Ria)

Geeeeeeeh, what the heck I just spouting.
Th-Th-That’s right I just trying to cheer her up becauae she was feeling down, there is no ulterior motive whatsoever. Argh, she is gonna hate me now. It’s bad, just like the matter about Dark Magic her fear has ressurected. In fact, right now she is showing a blank look on her face more intense than before.

[Wh-Wh-What are you talking about? Great Wiseman-sama] (Ria)

She averted her eyes with a red face.
Not good, I might have angered her completely.

[Th-That’s right.... it was just.... a joke] (Toru)

She sunddenly turned her eyes at me.
Her beautiful face was showing the ferocity of the carnivores.
Is this the true nature of The Female Knight?

[It was a joke?] (Ria)

[Sorry, I know there are a bad jokes and a good jokes to say] (Toru)

She laughed. But somehow I feeling intimidated.

[That’s right. A man sometimes lack of consideration with his words] (Ria)

[Hmm? Ah that’s righ....] (Toru)

For the time being let’s laugh together with Ria-san.
I’m not really catch-up with the situation but I will just follow suit.
She turn her red face to the other way again.

[I will take a bath. Where is it?] (Ria)

[Ah wait a moment. There are various things I want to teach you before] (Toru)

I pull her hand when she was about to leave.
Even when she avoided an eye contact. Even when I pulled her hand. She still didn’t pushing me aside.

[Ah, thank you very much....] (Ria)

  1. if he said that some people would actually like to get peed on, i wonder what her reaction would be? would her face go completely red and she would yell pervert, or would he get punched... or would she feel relived, wait a moment, then realize whats wrong with what he said?

  2. Thanks for the part of the chapter. Maybe shes starting to like him, or maybe beginning to revere him?

    1. Beginning to revere him? She's already treating him like some gandalf like character.

  4. Thanks! this novel has a nice premise that reminds me of Bathroom Goddess.

    Btw, most of the time Japan has no concept of spacing, so the = in Aria = Eldoraks is just a way to separate the given name and family name. Sometimes they also use full stop (.) but because this is a novel, it will become redundant with the actual full stop, so the writer use = instead.

  5. Dense! Dense protagonist has come!!!

    Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!

  6. Holy Water XD
    Thanks For The Chapter :D
