–Slave.

.

Hearing Kaya’s words caught me off guard.

.

[Slave, you say… This little girl?]

[Yes. Here… Look at the marking on this girl’s right arm.]

.

Kaya grabs the girl’s right arm and shows it to me while speaking.

The marking she speaks of proudly shows its presence as it shines in a greenish color.

.

[This… It’s a slave’s crest, isn’t it.]

[Yes. And probably…]

.

A slave’s crest.

It’s a magic that implants a pattern to a slave to signify one’s ownership of the property. The area around Rastal is a peaceful one but hey, seems like there are idiots just lingering around that don’t treat their slaves properly.

.

[This crest… This child must be a slave of the Ald family.]

.

I can’t help but frown after hearing Kaya. It just has to be them.

.

The Ald Family.

They are nobles who govern a territory near Rastal Village.

.

I rarely visit the place myself but the governor’s follies still reach my ears. To be honest, I think his temper is close to that of Leon and Dudley.

.

[Uhh…. ah….]

.

The girl groans in pain while she remains sprawling on the grass.

.

[Sorry… please… —anymore… I.. won’t… please…forgive…]

.

This is just too terrible.

And just looking at this girl’s figure… It wouldn’t take a genius to guess that she hasn’t been fed properly and left to starve for several days already.

.

[Damn…]

.

I’d like to keep her for a while and take care of her for a bit but she’s a slave so it will definitely cause complications and several issues.

.

Afterall, she is a property and is owned by her master.

Thus, she can’t be taken away by anyone else and must be returned to her owner.

.

And to top it off, since her master is a well known name on top of being a noble… Taking her without permission will definitely cause a ruckus.

.

But.

.

[Please… forgive..me, Ald-sama…. S-spare… spare my life…atleast…please…]

[…]

.

Hearing the girl’s voice filled with pain, suffering and remorse… I can’t hold myself any longer.

.

[Kaya-san… Correct me if I’m wrong but, the guild’s motto is , isn’t it?]

[Yeah, that’s what I know of as well — huh, don’t tell me–]

[Yes. I want to take this child under my custody albeit temporarily.]

.

We can’t leave the girl alone in this dangerous situation any further.

If we leave her just like this, she’ll definitely die from hunger. But before that could happen, chances for her to be monsters’ dinner are quite higher. As an adventurer who sworn to protect the people, I won’t allow either of those situations to occur.

.

If I start to weigh things based on their gains and losses… then, wouldn’t it just make me the same as ‘him’?

.

[Fufufu, really, Arios-san, you’re so…]

.

Kaya looks at me and I can see her gentle eyes sparkle before she returns her gaze towards the feeble kid.

.

[I understand then.
