Chapter 217: The Seven Faces Woman ~Daze! 6
『Well, is this really your second raid?』(Rena)
『Yes, I swear to the G.o.ddess!』(Bandit leader)
There is neither G.o.d nor G.o.ddess in this world.
But to those who don’t know it, their prestige was still alive.
And soldiers, hunters, bandits…, the 《people whose life is heavily influenced by luck》were quite religious, contrary to their usual behavior.
Anyway, most of them pray to G.o.d to have an easy of their heart, there’s nothing big deal like faith.
And of course, they don’t donate to the church either.
『What do you think?』(Maevis)
『Well, well, all the victims are killed or sold away somewhere, so we can’t confirm it…
Well, as the fact they are bandits doesn’t change, they will become criminal slaves for life.
We don’t have to do anything else besides handing them over to the guild』(Rena)
『Wait, wait!!』(Bandit leader)
Heard the interchange of Maevis and Rena, the bandit leader struggled.
It wasn’t the same, it was a big difference.
If they can deny all other bandit acts so far, they might have about 30 years sentence instead of a lifetime.
Perhaps they might have labor a.s.sign in some harsh places.
But it’s probably not long as a lifetime, it’s both fortunately and unfortunately…
They only did the bandit act once in the last time.
If the victims are alive and only being sold away, it’s possible to rescue or repurchase etc, by providing information on illegal slave merchants.
They can expect work that is a bit less harsh for about 30 to 40 years.
『It is true!
There is a lot of damage caused by the bandits. I can’t stand taking all their crime’s responsibility when we only did it once』(Bandit leader)
『… that, I think the other side is thinking so as well…』(Maevis)
Maevis felt disgusted by the thieves’ allegiance.
『No, but we have an alibi!
Some of the bandit’s act happened when we were at work and being drunk at the bar.
You should know immediately that there are other thieves.
In addition, if damage caused by the bandits still continues even after we all got captured, then it would prove that!』(Bandit leader)
『I see, well that’s true…』(Maevis)
Maevis also felt convinced.
If the girls finished the request with this and the damage continued after that, they will be in trouble.
No, they had a record of catching a thief as requested, and it will be a successful request.
But it’s not a satisfactory result for the 《Red oath》
The other three nodded in the words of Mile.
『Is it okay like this?』(Mile)
Rena’s Trio nodded at they looked at the work of Mile.
8 bandits were buried in the ground and leaving only what above the neck…
Not only the men were tied up, they were also buried in the ground, the soil was hardened by the magic. Their mouth and ear were putting a gag and their eyes were blindfolded.
And, before putting the gag in their ears, the girls warned them firmly.
If they scream so much, they may die of thirst as the girls only went back to get them after finished capturing all the bandit.
And if they make too much noise, monsters and beasts may come.
The girls also keep a wooden tag “these people are bandit” so they may be killed if they were found by a traveler or something.
… So it’s better to quietly breathe until they come back to collect them.
The bandits have a pale blue face, nodded.
There was a gag in their mouth so they couldn’t speak a word.
And furthermore, just to be sure, Mile cut some tree branches with thick leaves and cover them on the head, and also putting a barrier.
The barrier will block off voice and smell, but allow the air to pa.s.s through.
However, if Mile goes away, the barrier will disappear, but well, it can’t be helped.
『Well, shall we go, Milady』(Maevis)
『Umu, I suppose we will go!』(Mile)
『… for Mile only?』(Rena?)
『then, with someone who says good things…?』(Maevis?)
And the girls’ journey continued.
『This is a dead end!』(Mile?)
『『『『Came out!』』』』(Red Oath?)
(チョ～コベー… / Cho~kobee…) (Mile) (T.N: a catchphrase in Showa 40s, 50s which means “Have you seen chocolate?”)
As usual, Mile thought about some unknown thing.
And after a while, (a wild) 4-men group appeared.
『Are you lost your way?』(Rena)
『You must be lost when traveling, right…』(Mile)
Rena and Mile said so, those men seemed like getting lost.
From the damage report so far, it seems a bit hard to think that there are only 4 bandits.
There should be more bandits

That means …
『Hold it right there, bandits, we are the 《Twin Heavenly Flying Dragon》…, eh?』(Hunter leader)
In front of the four rus.h.i.+ng hunters, the girls were standing like nothing with the 4 bandits rolling on the ground.
Rena explained to the shocked hunters.
With how the girls see it if Rena doesn’t do it the broken hunters (.exe was cracked) are not likely to restart.
『We appreciate it that you seem trying to help us.
However, we can easily deal with them by ourselves.
Since you don’t need to worry anymore, please go ahead』(Rena)
Heard the explanation of Rena, the hunters somewhat have the upset expression.
『No, no …… That’s not going to happen!
There’s a danger of being counterattacked so we will take over the role to guard the bandits!』(Hunter Leader)
『Do you pretend to help and steal our prey, or you want us to pay the request fee for escort delivery?
We already know about those bandits’ ability, we can easily deal with someone of this level.
We don’t need your help or anything else!
These guys will be handed over to the guild by ourselves!』(Pauline)
Pauline will never forgive those trying to steal what she can make money with.
It’s impossible for anyone to bend the strong will of Pauline.
『Well …, then, in order to eliminate the danger, you should kill the thieves at this place!
Hey, you guys!』(Hunter leader)
According to a guy who seemed to be a leader, other hunters including himself pulled out the sword and walked toward the bandits.
And then the hunters slashed their swords towards the bandits who fell down on the ground.
Kikin, kinkin! (SFX)
Even the hunters thought they already did it for sure, the two girls parried their sword just right before they can kill the bandits. The hunters were surprised with their eyes wide opened again.
『What are you trying to do with our prey!?
If you kill them, the value will go down!』(Pauline)
『『『… …』』』(Mile’s Trio)
Pauline yells at first, Rena’s trio got stuck and didn’t say anything.
Everyone felt suspicious about the hunters who were short-circuited and tried to kill other people’s prey without permission.
((((suspicious……)))) (Red Oath)
