Chapter 26: I am safe with my skills
Since I rarely suffer direct damage thanks to my skills anyway, there is no reason to hesitate.
I quickly went outside.
But I still can’t see Katie. She must be outside the gate.
“Oh well. I’ll make it so that no one can enter within five steps of me…”
I changed the range of my block and ran to open the gate.
At that moment, I widen my eyes.
Katie was being held down by someone and had collapsed face down in front of the gate.
I immediately went to expel those men.
(Everyone other than Katie will be unable to approach within ten steps of me)
If I change the range of my block to include Katie, as I move forward, they roll sideways as if being pushed by something.
The man holding Katie down seems not to know what has happened to him.
He keeps comparing his hands and Katie.
He is a man with a dirty jacket, pants, and unkempt short hair and his stubble unkempt.
Is he a thief?
“Anyway, let’s run home, Katie.”
While they were flustered, I tried to take Katie inside the house.
But Katie seems to have completely lost her strength and can’t even stand up.
I am also too weak, so it is quite difficult for me to carry her and move.
Even so, I was pulling her little by little and was about to enter the gate.
A man stands up and I stand up and change the range of my Block Skill in order to do what I have been thinking about for a while, leaving Katie.
Although the cry may not have enough spirit, I go towards the opponent pretending to punch.
My fist is not strong and has no power.
However, the man who ran towards me was blocked by an air wall with a radius of 20 centimeters including my fist, and bounced back as if he had been struck against the wall.
Looking down at the man who collapsed on the spot, I exhale.
“If you hurt my servant again next time, it won’t end just like that.”
Declaring that, I reset the range of my Block Skill again.
To make sure I am not attacked from behind, I finally take Katie and enter the gate, locking the gate.
I exhale the breath I had held in.
“I didn’t think it would go this well, but it seems we avoided disaster.
As long as we can get inside the gate, everything will be okay.
They don’t know how many people are inside, so they’ll probably hesitate, and above all, there’s “that” super tough woman who can knock people out with a single punch.
Katie seems to have calmed down, but her body is still trembling.
“It’s okay. First, let’s rest inside the house. If we lock the door, no one can come in.”
Even if a servant comes, as long as I hear their voice and invite them in after calling out to them, we’ll be fine.
Tomorrow, a servant will be sent from the main house, or another servant will come, and the number of people will increase.
After that, let’s ask someone familiar with this area to send guards to the house again.
(It’s still frustrating that I have to ask my father…)
I want to get away from that house as soon as possible.
Thanks to changing my place of residence like this, it seems like the contents of the nightmare have changed.
If I take more action, I may be able to see a new future.
“First, let’s have dreams tonight and tomorrow.”
Katie, who heard my mutterings, cocks her head.
“Did something happen?”
“No, don’t worry about it. So, was the letter sent?”
“Yes. I found a stationery shop, so I sent it there.”
In the capital, it is common to ask a store or someone to send a letter. The postal worker who comes to the store collects the letters and delivers them to a stationery shop or the house of a noble in the neighborhood of the recipient.
If it is in the capital, it should arrive today or tomorrow.
After talking and calming down, Katie asks, “By the way… My Lady.”
I hesitated to answer.
In fact, it is impossible to say that I am good at fighting with people.
It is also not true that the opponent was so weak and afraid of my intimidation.
I have struck the opponent too firmly.
And by hesitating, Katie seems to have guessed.
“Is it possible that My Lady has a skill?”
If I admit it, it will be decisive.
However, no matter how much I denies it, Katie will continue to suspect if she witnessed it.
“…Yes. I just found out recently. But don’t tell anyone.”
“Why is that? If it’s known that you have a skill, everyone will treat you with respect. You shouldn’t have to clean up for yourself like this.”
Katie widened her eyes and argued.
I would have done the same if it weren’t for that nightmare.
But just having a skill is not enough. You might be thrown onto the same path towards the future and end up being the mastermind behind a rebellion if you make a mistake.
Maybe you were given a position in a neighboring country because you have a skill.
Or maybe you used your skill to eliminate people you think are in the way.
…It seems visible.
But even if I explain this to Katie, she won’t understand.
Your support means a lot to us!(◠‿◠✿)

I’m liking the mc but I think if that man tells about what she did including any eyewitnesses it will be hard for her…
