Chapter 43: Ninya-chan, You Done Great!│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
“Ninya and I both grew up in orphanages. And we were taken in by a clan called the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】…”
Nell started to speak about what goes on in the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】.
Additionally, she disclosed to them the wrongdoings she had perpetrated against Ninya.
“The 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 won’t let you go. I will be seen as a defector and an enemy of the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 if I join your party. I cannot involve you in this.”
After finishing her sentence, Nell shut her mouth and observed their reactions.
Neneli and Valla must have been shocked at what she said.
Neneli opened her mouth.
“I’m terribly sorry.”
For some reason, Neneli was bowing her head.
“As a nobleman, we have a duty to protect children like yourselves. I have not done so. I am truly sorry.”
Neneli spoke while lowering her head.
Nell was shocked because she didn’t anticipate an apology.
“Neneli-chan has nothing to apologize for!”
Ninya said, and Nell agreed.
“You tried your best, Ninya.”
Suddenly, Neneli stood next to Ninya and hugged her tightly.
“I will protect you with my life.”
Ninya detected a strong sense of resolve in Neneli’s words.
“Nell also, despite the difficult circumstances, you did your best.”
“Don’t you blame me…?”
“I have no right to blame you because I grew up in a greenhouse.”
Nell feels uncomfortable because she had expected to be scorned and the reaction is different from what she had imagined.
“Nell, are you going back to the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】?”
Valla asked Nell, who was standing next to her.
“Yes, It’s the only choice I have.”
“That is definitely not a choice! Nell is being used by an organization that makes no sense, and Valla-chan will never allow that!”
“The 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 is more than just a terrible clan. The benefits of belonging to the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 are numerous. So you have nothing to worry about.”
“Or are you pressuring me to oppose the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】?”
“It’s not that…”
Valla falls silent.
Valla seems to have been persuaded by this.
“I do have one thing on my mind.”
Neneli abruptly raised her voice.
“You said earlier that the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 will not allow you to leave. “
“Ninya is also, likewise, seen as a defector; if she stays in our party, won’t the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 pursue her?
In retrospect, that’s logical.
Nell was so focused on herself that she failed to consider Ninya’s situation.
“Oh… I see.”
Ninya seems to have realized that now.
“Ninya is treated as dead, so she should be fine.”
“But they’ll learn the truth eventually. It won’t be long before the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 learns of Ninya’s presence, just as you did when you discovered Ninya was alive and followed her here.
Also, Ninya’s [buff] is far too beneficial.
If the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 learns of this, they will take immediate action to secure Ninya at all costs.
“Nell-chan, let’s run away together!”
Ninya insisted while standing up.
“Let’s escape from the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 together, Nell-chan and I! Is it no good…?
Ninya worriedly enquired.
Nell didn’t want to cause trouble for those who cared for her by leaving the clan.
However, Ninya would still remain an enemy of the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】 regardless of Nell’s action.
Nell might even be given the order to catch Ninya herself if she went back to the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】.
“…I-I’m not saying no.”
Nell couldn’t find any reason to refuse.
“Of course I’m included in the running around with you.”
“Are you sure, Neneli-chan? You’re not related to the 【Gray-Brigade-Clan】, so it will cause you trouble if you…”
“I told you earlier that I would protect you, or are you going to leave me out?”
Neneli looked disappointed.
“No, if Neneli-chan comes with us, it will be a lot of fun! Please come with us.”
“Ufufu, I don’t have a choice.”
“V-Valla-chan will follow you! She doesn’t wish to be excluded.”
“Yes, now we can all work together!”
Nell just realized that all four of them are going to be working together.
“…Why doesn’t anyone blame me?”
Nell had said that without realizing it.
Yes, sin requires retribution.
If things go on like this, she’ll end up unpunished.
“Nell, if you feel guilty about Ninya, I will decide your punishment instead.”
Perhaps recognizing Nell’s emotions, Neneli raised her voice.
“Next time, protect Ninya at all costs. That is your punishment.”
(Protect Ninya…I’ll do my best if that’s my punishment.)
Nell nodded vigorously.
“Well, since that’s done, let’s pick a name for our party.”
“Hmm, that’s not a bad idea.”
“I like a cute name!”
“…I don’t mind.”
“Yes, Valla-chan has thought of a really great name!”
“Is that so? Tell me about it.”
“Fufufu, 【Jet Black Wings】. What do you think?!”
“…? What’s that supposed to mean?”
“Hey, what’s with that reaction?! You’re hurting Valla-chan’s feelings! If that’s the case, you two really need to think of something! Yes, let’s begin with Neneli.
“Ara, me? Ah, yes. How about 【Ninya Guards】?”
“That makes it sound like Valla-chan and the others are Ninya’s servants. Rejected!”
“It’s better than 【Jet Black Wings】.”
“I’m not very good at this.”
“Yes, yes. Ninya-chan got a good idea!”
“Well, Ninya, come on!”
“Fufufu, how about 【Cute Neko-chans】?”
“What, is that even a party name?”
“That’s my Ninya! That’s the name of our party.”
“Neneli is too soft on Ninya.”
“Still, it’s better than 【Jet Black Wings】.”
“Isn’t Nell being too harsh?! Okay, it’s Nell’s turn!”
” Let’s see… 【Black-Brigade-Clan】.”
“You just changed the color of [Gray-Brigade-Clan]. Rejected!”
“It’s better than 【Jet Black Wings】.”
“Yes, Ninya-chan got a better idea!”
“Well, I can’t expect much, but Ninya, please!”
“By the way, where did it originate from?”
“It’s the name of this restaurant.”
“Well, it’s a bit of a mess.”
“But it’s not bad, right?”
“I think it’s a great name because it sounds like a lot of fun.”
“Well, if that’s what everyone says, Valla-chan wouldn’t object.”
“So that settles everything then,”
“The party of Valla-chan is called― “
