- Chapter 120 - The broken Blue Shell Blade
The Kingdom’s youngest knight – Those who know of him know his name, that is the current state of being.
Of course, those affiliated to the Black Wolves Knights Order know of him, no doubt.
But if you never work with me, there is little chance you’ve ever spoken to me – I, Alta Schweiss, am that person, and almost always operate alone.
And as of late, the other Knights Orders seem to be cooperating with us.
There is also a shop I visit often.
“Waaa… that took quite a while”
“Well, that’s what you get with quality goods”
I looked at the voucher that was shown to me and pulled a wry face.
The place where I was right now… Was the blacksmith.
It was a bit remote from the academy, run by a man named Barns.
He takes on jobs such as reinforcing quality goods, so I always visit him when I need to have my blades taken a look at.
However, this time… it was a bit of a different story.
A little while back – In my battle with Riglus Harvey I got my beloved Blue Shell Blade broken.
The blade wasn’t just chipped, the blade got cut off.
It wasn’t easily repairable either, I too understood that very well…
“To treat this I need Helendite and the right amount of heat as well. And it has been broken, so I need some raw materials too. Even without a thorough inspection, I can tell that’s what I need”
The Blacksmith – Barns’ words made sense.
The raw material used in the Blue Shell Blade, Helendite, is a rather rare material.
And because the raw material is so rare, to begin with, the reparation costs are going to be rather high.
Anyway, I need to get this blade restored back to its old self.
I answered assuredly.
“It can’t be helped. I need it repaired, so I will pay and leave you to it”
The sword broke during my mission.
And so I can make a request at the Knights Order to get my sword repaired.
So I can safely repair my blades, even though the cost may be extremely high.
I rarely break my blades, but just like now, it does happen.
If I had to pay the full price myself each and every time I break my own swords, then I would be living in debt rather than a leisure life.
…That being said, the debt has to be paid – And though I don’t like saying it, I use only the best swords.
“Well, then I will take this sword in my care now. Do you need another sword can use in the meantime?”
“No, that’s quite fine. I will get one from the Knights Order on out”
“Alrighto. But to break this blade, you must’ve done quite some flashy stuff”
“Ahaa, not that flashy though. Still, I didn’t expect it would fracture”
Suddenly I was interrupted as a girl repeated what I just said.
It was a voice I remember quite vividly.
— From the entrance of the blacksmith I could feel a killer vibe coming over me.
Though I knew that there was someone standing right there, I couldn’t quite grasp who it was.
… That being said, I really didn’t expect her to show up here.
I called out the name, of the woman whose long black hair covered both her shoulders and with pupils of red.
Though her face is usually quite cute, she was now frowning, forming wrinkles on her forehead, as if she was angry.
I felt this was going to be a hassle.
I didn’t even have the chance to ask her why she was here in the first place,
“Hey, did you… Did you by chance break the Blue Shell Blade?”
She asked as if she wanted to make sure.
Cloe Schweiss – My sister-in-law asked the same question again.
I left out a small sigh. I knew I could not get around it so I decided I’d tell her the truth.
“Yes, it’s fractured”
“……… F-Fractured! That can’t be! You idiotic little in-law!”
And, just as I expected, she started yelling at me in the next moment.
