Radamus, the royal capital of the Scardia Kingdom.
The city has an air of buoyancy that is different from the bustling atmosphere I had when I arrived for the entrance ceremony.
The Royal Palace, where King Haruf Scardia resides, looms over the northern part of the capital.
To the east from there is our very own Regulus Institute, the outline of which can be seen even from here, if only vaguely. And in the southwestern part of the royal capital is my old haunt (though I’ve only been here once), the Adventurer’s Headquarters.
It seems that no conflicts have been centered around the capital for a long time. Perhaps the alliance with the Cardis Empire, which is also involved in the festivities this time around, is a major factor in that peace.
“But wow, …… is this really the same country as Lowood?”
The main street of the royal capital is richly decorated, and the mood is truly festive. The red lion flag of the Kingdom of Skardia and the blue eagle flag of the Cardis Empire are displayed in a jumbled manner.
You can find stalls everywhere, and you can see travelers, peddlers, and traveling entertainers who were not usually present. There are also various adventurers equipped with heavy armor.
There are also more than usual knights from King’s Landing on patrol. You can find red lines on the armor of the knights of King’s Landing. But there are also other knights with blue lines here and there today. The blue one would be a knight belonging to the empire.
But it’s a little strange……. If just guarding around here, it will be fine just to add few guards. But lending a hand, from Cardis, is not really understandable. It’s not like they’re on guard, especially when it comes to …….
I’ve been thinking about this as I stood in the fountain plaza where I was to meet Nina, idly watching people come and go.
When I turned around at the sound of a familiar voice, I saw Nina standing there in her school uniform.
Nina is a little uncomfortable and twirls her long hair in a twirl.
“Sorry, I’m a little late.”
“Hi. Don’t worry about it.”
“You are less responsive……”
“No, no, no, that’s about my normal, right? I was usually looking forward to it.”
“Of course. I’ve never really been to the capital, you know. I wanted to see around.”
Then Nina smiles happily with a perky smile.
“Hmmm, I got it! Because I’ve got the perfect plan!”
“Haha, I’m counting on you today.”
“What do you mean, today!?”
Nina puffs her cheeks out a little angrily.
“Hahaha. –And what are you going to do about it? There are quite a bit of festivities going on right in front of us……”
“No, no, no. That’s the last one. Let’s take a look at the actual city first.”
“Oh, you’re good. Arthur is going to forget about it and run into the festival.”
“I’ve been thinking about you, Noah, for a while now.”
Saying so, Nina is proud to say ahem.
To begin with, Nina is a serious person. She is thinking about me, isn’t she? She’s a good guy.
“So we will visit the magic society’s headquarters and the adventurer’s headquarters, and after lunch, we will go to the magic store. You want to see the sundries and stuff too, right?”
“Oh, nice.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“Okay, come on, let’s go!”
Nina flips her skirt around and leads me down the street.
“First, the library! It’s a little bit far from the west, but it’s just right for a walk, right?”
We passed through the main street and proceeded down the street lined with stalls. The streets are alive with the voices of merchants calling out to each other and negotiating for lower prices.
We continue down a side street, go through an intricate alleyway, and leisurely cross a small bridge. With the gentle river below, it’s like being back in Lowood.
From there, we walked up a gentle slope, and when it became less popular, we saw a huge square building
“Here it is!”
“Wow, it’s huge.”
“Hmm. The library at the Reglass School of Magic is quite big, but it’s all about magic. There is a lot more stuff here. You can find everything from literature to history books and even a little gossip magazines. What’s up with —-?”
Nina notices me looking back and calls out to me.
This area seems to be at a slightly higher elevation, and I can see the area around the fountain square where I was earlier.
It’s huge, King’s Landing.
“I’m sorry. It’s a nice place. Let’s go inside.”
After visiting the library, the headquarters of the magic society, the headquarters of the adventurers, etc., we returned to the central street and had lunch.
As expected of the royal capital. Anyway, the quality is amazing. There was a library in Lowood as well, but I’ve never seen anything like this one. There were quite a few interesting books on display. I’d like to come back to look at it if I have time.
I wonder why Shelah doesn’t want to come to the capital when it’s so prosperous and there are so many things to see. We can use this area as a base anyway.
I’ve seen the Magic Society and Adventurer’s Headquarters once before, but going there with Nina again was a different kind of fun. Especially at the Adventurer’s Headquarters, Nina’s eyes were shining.
Just as we finished watching and were about to go somewhere else, Keith, an S-class adventurer magician …… “dragon slayer,” came out of the Adventurer’s Headquarters just in time to see us.
It’s a good thing that they know about Van, but they don’t know me at all, and they treated me as if I were just a fan. Apparently, I’m going to be assigned to escort him to the meeting later. It’s a request for a nomination.
“I’m sure that this will be a little easier if that Van is here. We’ve got to decide who’s the best S-class fighter in the world. ……”
Keith complained quietly.
“So, I’ll be here for lunch.”
“Yeah! You couldn’t eat here because of me, right? A place to meet, or rather…… hehe”
Nina said romantically, but this is not a fancy place to eat, it’s just a bar.
It is the place where I met Nina and got her away from old Hal.
“Come on, eat up! It’s on the house.”
“No, no, no. I have the money, don’t worry about it.”
“No no! This also serves as a thank you. Besides, I definitely have more money than you.
Then Nina smirked.
“You look bad today…..”
“Huh, hey, so it’s good, right?”
“…… Phew. Well, it’s a great feeling. I’ll just take it in stride.”
“That’s the way it should be!”
We ask for soda water, meat on the bone, salads, and various other common things, and start eating.
Nina is smiling and filling her mouth with food and puffing out her cheeks.
I’ve been thinking in the academy that Nina is somewhat folksy for a duke family. It’s all very dangerous.
It’s a good thing that you’re able to get a good idea of what you’re looking for.
“……, what Noah!”
“No, I don’t know………… It’s okay.”
“Err, what! I’m curious!”
Nothing to worry about. Come on, let’s get a bite to eat, you’ve got afternoon plans, right?”
“I’m already ……. Well, we’ll spend the afternoon browsing through the magical tools and sundries, and then we’ll enjoy the festival for a bit.”
Nina says with a big smile.
“Ha, nice. It doesn’t seem to be bored.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
