TWEM Vol. 6 Chapter 18 Part 1

Chapter 18 – Departing from the Imperial Capital, Bound for the Holy City

It was at lunchtime the next day.

We all got ready and headed to the castle in a carriage.

Char was already there waiting for us.

“Thank you so much for coming all the way. Here is my luggage.”

Her luggage was less than I had expected.

“Is this all you have?”

I couldn’t help but ask.

Char answered my question with a wry smile.

“Yes. All I need is a change of clothes and a weapon.”

“I see.”

While I was putting away Char’s luggage, Oskar, Reid, and the rest of the “Seven Royal Guards” appeared.

Oskar came straight to me.

“Haruto, take care of Char, will you?”

“Yeah, leave it to me.”

“And thank you once again. Without you, the empire would have fallen into the hands of the demons. Thank you for saving us.”

Oskar bowed his head.

Oskar then turned his attention to Reid and the others.

“Reid, you guys have something to say as well, right?”


Today, in addition to Reid, Gaiz, Ash, and Sentes, the remaining three members of the “Seven Royal Guards” —Cain, Hans, and Gillot were also present.

Cain and the other three were only introduced to me, but I could tell that they were as good as Ash and Sentes.

On behalf of the seven members, Reid took a step forward.

“Thank you so much for saving our country.”

Reid bowed his head toward me, and then turned to Finne and the others to thank them.

“Finne-dono can still get stronger. Then I’ll have a match with you again. I might lose then, but I have no intention of neglecting my training.”

“Yes! I won’t lose next time!”

“I’ve found something new to look forward to.”

The others also said their goodbyes, and we got into the carriage.

“Take care, Char, and be stronger.”

“Yes, Father.”

“Right, Haruto.”

Oskar looked at me.

“Hm? What’s the matter…?”

“Next time you come to this country, would you like to have a duel with me too?”

“Yeah, that’s right. We couldn’t have a duel after all that happened. I’ll look forward to it.”

“Hahaha, then I’ll train with Reid and the others…I’ll leave Char in your care.”

“Leave it to me.”

I shook Oskar’s hand.

In this way, we departed from the Imperial Capital while being seen off by everyone to return to the Kingdom of Perdis.

By the way, I haven’t said goodbye to Fance and the other adventurers.

We would meet again somewhere. That was what being an adventurer was all about.

According to what we heard, they were helping to restore the arena.

Helping with reconstruction was part of the job of an adventurer. I would have liked to help as well, but my schedule was set ahead of time, so I decided not to.

However, the people and adventurers of the Imperial Capital were full of motivation.

I couldn’t take away everyone’s work by fixing it myself.

I’m looking forward to visiting again.

As the carriage was moving forward, Char spoke to me.

“Now that I think about it, our destination is the Holy City of Belifaire’s Holy State, right? It’s been a while since I met Ilmina, so I’m looking forward to it.”

“I see, if you’re a member of the royal family, you’ll probably have parties, so I guess you know each other.”

Both Ilmina and Char were princesses of a country.

“Yes, that’s why I can’t wait to meet her.”

Char said happily.

If you can’t wait that long, we can use my spatial teleportation to return to the Holy City in an instant…

I wanted to tell her that and surprise her, but Char continued speaking.

“But I also heard from Iris that this carriage is amazing, so I’m looking forward to traveling slowly.”

Ah, you mean the subspace. I had not explained it yet.

Anyway, if that’s the case, I guess I didn’t need to tell her about the spatial teleportation.

“Then, let’s take a slow carriage ride to the Holy City.”

If I get the chance, I’ll use spatial teleportation.

“Yes!…And Iris. What do you mean by amazing?”

Asked by Char, Iris guided her to the door leading to the subspace.

“Hehehe, what’s beyond this door!”

“What kind of door is this?”

“It’s the door that leads to the subspace that Haruto created. There’s a space beyond this.”

“Subspace…? Space…?”

Of course, there was no way she could understand that, and a question mark was floating in Char’s head.

“You’ll understand better if you actually go in than if I explain it to you. Asha.”

“Yes. Then Charlotte-sama, please come here.”

“Eh, yeah…”

Although Char was confused, Iris and Asha guided her into the subspace.

I was looking forward to seeing her reaction.

After Char entered the subspace with Iris and Asha, a group of monsters appeared on the road as the carriage was running for a while.

It was a group of goblins.

“Goblins? They’re a nuisance.”

“What should we do?”

“Shall I handle it?”

“Haruto-kun, can I do it too?”

Finne, Ephyr, and Suzuno insist on doing it.

Zero was reading calmly. He would do it if I asked him to, but judging from his expression, he’s probably in a good place right now. Let’s leave him alone.

Incidentally, Kuzel, who would be the first to raise her hand at times like this, was currently training in subspace.

“No, I’ll do it.”

Saying that, I let the carriage run on its own.

“Maguro, keep going. I’ll take down the goblins.”

Maguro neighed, “Hee-hee-hee!”

While sitting in the driver’s seat, I shaped my right hand into a gun and fired a magic bullet at the goblin who was still far away.

The magic bullet punctures the goblin’s head, killing it.

“Hmm, that’s inefficient —Windcutter.”

As it was, I needed to keep shooting magic bullets at each of the goblins, so I switched to wind magic.

The wind blade cut the remaining goblins in half, top and bottom.

“Alright, it’s all cleared up.”

To finish it off, I threw a fireball at them, instantly reducing the goblin corpses to ashes.

During that time, I didn’t move an inch from the driver’s seat.

“I’m used to seeing that by now…”

“I know right…”

“Me too…”

Finne, Suzuno, and Ephyr had stunned looks on their faces.

I wonder why?

After a while, the door leading to subspace swung open.

When I turned my head to see what was going on, there was Char, her eyes sparkling.

“Haruto, that’s amazing!”

Char shook my shoulder while I was sitting on the driver’s seat and said this excitedly.

“I-I see. So how was it?”

“What’s that? I can’t travel without this carriage anymore!”

“I-I see. I’m glad you liked it.”

For a while, Char passionately talked to me about the wonders of subspace.

And after that, she grabbed Finne, Suzuno, and Ephyr to talk about it, and by the time she was done talking, everyone but Char was exhausted.

No, to be exact, it would be more correct to say all of them, except Zero.

Zero was in agreement with Char, saying, “Yes, it was made by Haruto-sama.”

After she finished speaking, Char said she would train with Kuzel and returned to subspace.

I am glad to hear that she apparently made a good friend.
