hunter? That’s probably what Ciel meant to say.
For me, I just wanted to see how a party fights even only for a bit, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

『If it’s not allowed then the person watching us would probably call us out.』
『I see.
So then I only need to sneakily watch over them, right?』
『Please do.』

And as Ciel sneakily peeks from the cover of a tree, we see the party of young people I noticed earlier there fighting a mob of goblins.
The party of four are using a longsword, a one-handed sword and shield, sorcery, and a bow respectively.
I don’t actually know if their party is well balanced or not.
Still, since they’re having a hard time against goblins that only have worn out weapons on them, it seems like the party might not be that strong.
There are two vanguards in the party but they can’t keep the ten goblins in check, so the party is slowly taking more and more damage.

On the other hand, the goblins aren’t just attacking blindly, they have some level of coordination as it looks like the relatively big goblin is giving out commands.
It’s hard to judge who’s the real human here.
That should be the so-called Goblin Leader.
Although it’s not at the level of a D-rank, it’s said to be the E-rank’s strongest monster.
For E-class hunters, maybe it’s a bit too difficult for only the four of them.

『It seems like this isn’t really a fight we can observe teamwork from, is it?』
『Look at it as a 3 vs 9 battle.
The person with the longsword isn’t pulling his weight.』

As Ciel said, if I change my perspective, the one with the one-handed sword is using his shield to hold back the goblins while the ones at the rear is focused on attacking, so I can see that they are at least working as a group.
However, it feels like that person alone isn’t enough to push nine goblins back.
So considering that, if he is an E-ranker then the vanguard might be actually highly capable.
If they only had one more vanguard, they could probably handle the fight a bit better.

So what is the remaining one doing then? He’s charging at the Goblin Leader.
At first glance it might seem like they’re fighting toe to toe but since the Leader is giving out commands while fighting, it’s likely the stronger one here.
If I just let them be, the hunters will lose.
Hmm, I just wanted to see if I can learn something from them but this ended up being a choice of whether we help them or leave them to die.

『As a hunter, just leaving might not be wrong but……』
『You want to help them, right Ain?』
『Do I really? I want to help them but I don’t want the troubles that come after helping them.
That’s how I feel about it, I think.
Helping itself is easy to do after all.
How the person watching us would feel about it is a factor too.』

The one doing the helping is Ciel, though.
I can imagine it going like: Help them → They’ll feel grateful → They’ll tag along; and I also can’t say for sure that they can properly reward us after we rescue them.
Still, maybe, just maybe, we could get something from the guild.
Also, seeing people die right in front of my eyes, feels absolutely horrible.

The problem here is probably that even though we don’t have any duty to help out, helping itself would barely take any time.
If Ciel’s life could be put at risk, I’ll absolutely choose to run.
But even if that party is crushed and the goblins attack us next, we can take care of them in seconds.
And other than that, another problem is that Ciel doesn’t care whether we help them or not.

『I’d feel awful if they die right in front of us, so would you mind if we help them?』
『Sure, I wouldn’t mind it.』
『But about that, please make it seem like sorcery was used from the right-hand tree diagonally behind us.』
『Fufu, Ain is a really mean person, you know?』

Giggling delightedly, Ciel began pouring magic power in one of our hidden magic circles.
It’s not the whirlwind slash that we’ve been using up until now, but an ice arrow magic circle.
Although she called me mean for this, Ciel herself is making this a pretty elaborate setup as well.
From the place I told her, ice arrows shot out and pierced the heads of five goblins.
The hunters already defeated the other three goblins, so they should be able to manage with only the Goblin Leader left.

『Let’s run.』
『Where shall we go?』
『Please head to the gate we left from.』

After that short exchange, Ciel sprints off.

And while we’re at it, I support her using Song Princess.
The hunters were surprised by the arrow of ice that suddenly appeared and turned their heads to where it came from.
I don’t know how the person they saw reacted to that but since it doesn’t seem like they’re following us, we should have tricked them good.

After leaving the forest and running halfway through the grasslands, I switched with Ciel.
And after that, I walked back to the gate and saw that the mister was still on shift.
As he saw me, he seemed relieved and waved his hand.

「Hey little miss.
Looks like you’re back unscathed.」
「I only went to get herbs after all.
If it’s just goblins, them being around or not doesn’t really make a difference.」
「Normally encountering a goblin is already problematic enough, though.
Anyway, good work coming back.」

Unlike on our first day, we were allowed to enter without any issues, so I said my thanks as I entered the town.
After walking through the straight path and entering the Hunter’s Guild, there I see Carol-san staring at me as though she wants to have a word with me.



Hiya~! We’re surprisingly out of the guild quick this time and we’re back again by the end of the chap… orz

So for today’s chapter, Ain had a lot of fun, plain fun but fun nonetheless.
A nice stroll in the nice beautiful weather (ignore the monsters, lol).

As for the hunters, lol.
Ciel be savage, not only in actions but also in words.
“It’s a 3v9, one’s not pulling his weight” Kek.
Also AinCiel’s exchange be like:

Ain: This is a trap, a narrative trap, but I can’t leave them after knowing that they’ll probably die, so yeah, use sorcery and make sure that it’ll look like it’s from “that person” following us, m’kay?
Ciel: Lol, you’re such a bully.
Also Ciel: *Proceeds to make sure that they’ll identify the rescuer as *that person* by specifically using *ice arrows* even though Ain didn’t say anything about ice magic*
That person: WHy!? (Probably)

Well, it’s nice to see Ciel having the initiative even in just that way, lol.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this chapter.
Please feel free to comment.
Stay clean, stay safe, and have a nice day~!
