Shield Hero V16 SS2

After Seeing Naofumi Departed…

After Seeing Naofumi Departed…

 

It happened when I reunited with Naofumi-sama again in the Great Shield Spirit’s world and talked to him. Ost-san and I, were seeing off Naofumi-sama, who had shaken off his hesitation and awakened.

 

Then, after Naofumi-sama departed…

 

“Ost-san, how was it? Did I see Naofumi-sama off in a proper and beautiful way?”

 

“Yes.” Ost-san replied.

 

“That’s a triple point for me!”

 

“Y- yes…”

 

I somehow feel that Ost-san replied with a bitter smile. Well, it’s probably just my imagination.

 

“Fufu… This raises the bar that Raphtalia-san has to overcome! I gave up the “lover” seat, but I have no intention of ceding my monopoly of his heart!”

 

“You don’t support her?”

 

“I do. That’s why I have to make sure that Raphtalia does her best. Since she’s trying to steal Naofumi-sama from me!”

 

This is also a challenge from me to her. It is a trial for Raphtalia to overcome me and capture Naofumi-sama’s heart. The rivalry between me and Raphtalia hasn’t been settled yet!

 

“Oh yeah, I was curious. Naofumi-sama asked Ost-san to come out from the Shield’s world as a familiar. Does that mean Ost-san could dwell in a familiar that is born from Raphtalia-san’s hair?”

 

“Right… I have knowledge of artificial monster research and the like, so if I asked the researcher that is associated with the Shield Hero, it may be possible.”

 

After hearing Ost-san’s words, I observe the familiar that Naofumi-sama cares so much for, from the Shield Spirit’s world.

 

Certainly, she seems to have a structure that can be modified easily. Moreover, she is also capable of wielding such great power.

 

It is indeed a good vessel for me to dwell in, but I have no intention of becoming a sister to Raphtalia-san at all, so it ends up being quite the unappealing option.

 

Unlike me, Ost-san seems to show no hesitation in that regard. She might settle for such a form, so long as she is able to actively help Naofumi-sama out there, I think.

 

“The Great Shield Hero appears to deeply care for his familiar after all… So I thought you would gladly choose to dwell within one if it were possible to do so.”

 

Suddenly, I remembered Naofumi-sama gently stroking that familiar… Raph-chan gently…

 

Ugh… this… makes my determination waver… Since that means I could have Naofumi-sama’s love all to myself.

 

But, I won’t lose my composure. Because getting out isn’t the only way to monopolize Naofumi-sama!

 

“So if Naofumi-sama… the name is Spirit Tortoise, right? If he uses its material to make a familiar, can you dwell in it?”

 

This place is the Great Shield Spirit’s world, but it is also Naofumi-sama’s world. If Ost-san goes to the outside world, I would  be the only one in Naofumi-sama’s world. The possibility to get out, and this. The better choice is clear as day!

 

“If it is that then… I would end up in the form of a tortoise instead, I would have an easier time getting used to the body as well. Maybe I should have requested it from him…”

 

She’s showing some hesitation. But, Ost-san immediately asks back.

 

“Since you mentioned that, Atla-san. Maybe you can also get out if you ask him to make a familiar using the White Tiger material from within the shield.”

 

“I can’t. I don’t think I’m skillful enough to do so in that way.”

 

Presently, I am not confident that I would be capable enough to pull it off. Even if I managed to do it, I have a feeling that what would have been me would mutate into something else in that familiar.

 

… There’s no doubt that something similar happened to Raphtalia-san’s familiar.

 

“Please try to imagine this. In the event that I successfully become a familiar, rather than becoming Naofumi-sama’s pet, I can see myself ending up as Onii-sama’s pet instead!”

 

I’m Onii-sama’s little sister, not his pet. I would like to avoid that outcome.

 

“Yes… I did see everything from the Shield’s world, but I didn’t expect you to have such a clear image of who your brother is.”

 

Of course. Onii-sama is Onii-sama after all.

 

“Returning to the topic at hand. Why did you give up the chance of becoming a familiar when it is clear that you have the desire to go out there?” I asked Ost-san.

 

“Why are you demanding an explanation from me, Atla-san…?”

 

It’s not like I’m demanding she answer my question, but it seems like that was how she perceived it.

 

Well, I can understand her feelings of not wanting to become a familiar.

 

“Anyway, I’ll support Naofumi-sama as his power from here.”

 

Yes, it’s not a bad idea to support Naofumi-sama as a familiar, but I decided to help Naofumi-sama from inside the shield. Perhaps Ost-san feels the same as I do.

 

Since Raphtalia is his sword, I’ll protect Naofumi-sama as his shield.

 

I should be able to do that from here.

 

“You’re right,” Ost-san replied.

 

While Ost-san and I continued talking about such things, we continued to watch over Naofumi-sama and the others.​
