Reincarnated Young Lady Aims to Be an Adventurer - Volume 7 Chapter 104
Translator: Joy | Editor: Joy
I showered grandmother with all the spells I could muster.
“All the pain, all the suffering, fly to Maribelle!”
After confirming that grandmother’s breath while sleeping had stabilized and the deep wrinkles on her face had somewhat faded, I sent butterflies to father, elder brother, Ghilane, and elder sister Eris. Ash also flew off. He must have gone back to report back to Ghilane for once. Unlike Marshe, Judor and Galle are close to each other. They should be back soon.
I entrusted my grandmother to her aides who love her. Then, I straddled Lu and ride over the morning dewy grass to head to my old home, the Trundle Guild.
The guild was filled with the key members I had missed, all lined up in a row. The most well-trained actual unit of Trundle Adventurers. Also, the big executives who had a lot of face in the old days……well, to me they are just grandpas and grandmas who spoil me.
“Serafi-chan……welcome back……I’m sorry, I couldn’t protect Elsa-sama……”
Lara bursts into tears. I shake my head.
“Young la……wait, its Lord now right, it’s somehow hard to say……but really, welcome back!”
“Matt-kun, you’ll age if you call me Lord! Just call me as usual.”
I’m only being the Lord temporarily. Once grandmother is healthy, I’m going to return it to her. Grandmother will definitely be fine! Of course, the war needs to be over first. This will affect their morale, so this is confidential.
“Is that so……young lady, you did a great job.”
“Teacher Kodak……thank you……”
I wrapped my arms around Teacher Kodak’s large waist and then he patted my head.
“Young lady……I’m sorry……”
“Why is Gil-san apologizing?”
The guild leader is giving me the chief seat. It’s heavy. Lu is at my feet and Miyu is staying alert in my breast pocket. The genjutsu is firmly arranged. I’m sure there are some talented people in this group, but I’m not in a mood to explain about <contractors> right now.
“Princess, everyone has gathered. Promptly, what do you think of this attack on Elsa-sama?”
“First of all, the perpetrator of last night’s attack, it was Schneider’s people.”
Even if I couldn’t see him, I was seriously horrified by Lu, it’s like there is an animal instinct saying that there is no option to not obey him. I froze in fear.
Just like when I was once stared at by Tarl-sama.
“I was hoping that this civil war, would be fought out quickly by those at the top.
But now that grandma has been injured, I understood. Schneider probably also felt the same way. However, it seems that for Schneider the head of the enemy was not His Highness Gardner, it was grandmother.”
The eyes of the grandpas and grandmas gleamed. They all ran through one generation with grandmother, their expressions stiffened……and they seem angry.
“Trundle’s private army and the adventurers that have pledged allegiance to Trundle are now more powerful than the military. Not only are they strong, but they have also experienced a lot of battles. Among those who would not follow Schneider’s will, Trundle was the strongest of them all. Surely the past two years had reminded him of Trundle’s fear and influence. Even if he killed His Highness Gardner and became the successor, Trundle would surely stand in his way eventually. Compared to Trundle, Gardner’s army is not to be feared.”
“But no matter how strong they are, they’ll be rattled if their leader is hit. They might be able to handle Trundle if grandmother was not there. Probably incidentally? The option of a curse came to their hand. I think he wanted to kill grandmother first and then easily crush Gardner. So, he was aiming as to when grandmother would be at death’s door to attack.”
Grandpa Sieg, who was listening to me with his eyes closed, nodded at me. Did my hypothesis, get a passing grade?
“In fact, if grandmother had passed away, I don’t know if I would have been able to take command like what I’m doing now. I don’t even know if I would be in a state that can make normal decisions. We were on the verge of defeat, in a way. His Highness Schneider, who would have defeated Trundle, could confront grandmother with his ability and easily ask Gardner to surrender to the Queen.”
“Elsa-sama’s willpower……saved us all.”
Lara blurts out. It is the unmistakable truth.
“And I’m the one that Schneider wants to bury personally. Grandmother’s influence on me is immeasurable.”
If grandmother had died, I would have gone mad with anger and regret. Many of the people of Trundle would have felt the same way, and if we had a battle in the midst of the chaos, it would have been a mess.
…… Lalouza, Serafiona, remember this well……
『Don’t be overconfident in your own strength and grasp an accurate information about the enemy. Have a sense of nervousness. Both of you, remember this well. 』
『You should always expect the worst of the worst. Don’t be optimistic? Serafi-chan. With known assumptions, you should become even more cautious. 』
『……Just like how Serafi will protect me, I will……protect the Holy Beast Lu-sama and Serafi with all my might. I will give my allegiance, my life, and everything I have to Lu-sama and my contractor Serafiona. 』
“Have a sense of nervousness, calmly, carefully, and then thoroughly defeat them. Schneider is strong! Never underestimate him! Call in all the lines of command. I want to get under all of Schneider’s base. Let’s shut down the supply train first and sift out those who are unwilling before our war begins.”
Grandpa Sieg gives the instructions to the youngsters who are standing behind him.
“However, even Elsa-sama……wouldn’t know about curses right? It’s not fair. If only there were no such techniques, we would still be in normal business. We’ll be gradually be defeated if we are attacked by something invisible, right? What should we do from now on?”
Matt-kun holds his mohawk head. A gold plate can be seen from his neck. Really!
“For now, I’ve returned the curse, so the one who cast it won’t be able to use the same move anymore. However, there’s a chance he’ll think of another curse.”
Being optimistic is forbidden!
”I’ll ask the Small Dragon-sama of the swamp for help. I’ll ask him to be a curse detector.”
Miyu’s existence is a secret for now. Well, when they were still a little snake everyone was scared, but now everyone is affectionate to them. This is Miyu’s hometown, I won’t stop her if she wants to go out.
Little Dragon-sama is the Lord of the swamp and the object of Trundle’s respect and affection. Everyone can see him and talk about him.
“Little Dragon-sama, you know, is the god of the gold cast-off skin!!!”
Lara-san became a bit more lively.
“It seems like you’ve been…..considerably underestimated.”
Teacher Kodak mumbles with a look of absolute cold. Teacher Kodak, just like me, was defeated by Schneider last time. We’re not going to allow it to happen again, isn’t that right? Teacher.
”At noon, we will declare the Princess’s succession as Lord of Trundle to the Royal Palace, the leading nobles, the lords in each region, and all the guilds in the world. At the same time, we simultaneously notify them that Trundle had received a surprise attack last night and that we have the legitimate right to retaliate against the mastermind of the conspirators. The Guild will blow up Schneider and the entire military armory and that they should prepare themselves!”
Everyone, other than me and the guild leader, stood up and left with a silent bow.
“Everyone, aren’t you mad that a young person like me is calling herself a lord?”
“Haha! What are you talking about now? It is inevitable that the princess will become the lord. Whatever you lack because of your youthfulness, we will train you without holding anything back!”
S, Shouldn’t you say, that whatever I lack you’ll help me compensate for it―!
“But…… Maribelle is the little girl from that time, isn’t she? Come to think of it, the princess had paid a lot of attention to that little girl……to think that she is aiming at us for the second time……I should have killed her.”
Grandpa Sieg can no longer hide his seriousness. I can see the tornado on his back the whole time……
“Maribelle is an unpredictable factor. Just like this time, she can suddenly learn a curse. Just like Schneider, do not underestimate her.”
“As you wish.”
“Sieg Guild Master…… I’m sorry about last night.”
Grandpa Sieg shook his head slowly.
“I didn’t realize….that it was a curse. That’s exactly why Gainz almost got cursed to death.”
“Princess…… it’s good…… to have you…… back in time.”
Grandpa Sieg wrapped my hands in his wrinkled but firm palms.
“The guild will be in contact with the Sieg Guild Master like this, I want to find out what grandmother’s private army and grass intentions are. I’d like to get in touch with them as soon as possible. Should I communicate with Oaks about this?”
Sieg Guild Master smiled cheerfully.
“Normally, it would be no problem for you to ask Oaks since he is the steward, but right now Oaks doesn’t want to leave Elsa’s side even for a while. There is another suitable person that can contact them. I’ll contact her immediately.”

I dashed straight to jump at Sasara-san, whose eyes resemble the bright sun!
