Chapter 204: Interrogation
The hunter group brought the criminals back to the royal city and heading straight to the royal palace.
Although the Hunter Guild is the one putting up the requests and capture of criminals, it doesn’t have jurisdiction.
It’s the role of the royal palace and the guards to investigate and judge the captured criminals.
Usually, most of the cases are the jurisdiction of the guard. But this time, considering the political elements, etc. those criminals are examined directly by the royal palace.
It seems that how the royal place corresponds.
This might be a kidnapping aiming at beastkin, the criminals are a large number of magicians, rich and lower aristocrats. etc
And there might be accomplices who weren’t on the scene…
At the same time, this was not a case to be entrusted to security guards who could just do the simple task like punish bandits.
As for Faril-chan…
Of course, last night Maevis also contacted the innkeeper couple as well.
They have been waiting at the town gate since this morning.
As the escort group returned, the girls handed over Faril-chan to her parents.
In the end, Mile doesn’t have any chance to carry Faril-chan.
『Your majesty, let me explain the details of the incident』(Officer)
Even if the interrogation was done in the royal palace, his majesty wasn’t the one doing it.
It was done mostly by the officers, among them, there might be some persons of relatively higher ranks as well.
Of course, the outline of the incident was already reported in advance.
This is a rather big deal that needs permission from his majesty.
The guild master and staff members were mostly awakened in the middle of the night to prepare and wait before dawn.
They also prepared a letter to report to the royal palace, they just need to include the new information.
The interrogation was conducted based on the explanation and testimony of the 《Red Oath》and the 《G.o.ddess’ servant》
And the criminals raised their object about this arresting and interrogation from the beginning.
They told they are just a moderate religious G.o.d who didn’t intend to hurt the girls, just because the ceremony required the presence of a beastkin’s girl.
It’s impossible to believe that they were going to return her when the matter was over.
Well, of course, there’s no way for anyone to believe it. So after that, the Royal place decided to use severe interrogation individually…
But the biggest problem wasn’t there.
What is the size of this dubious cult, the history of establishment, the existence of other peers, and their ultimate goal?
It’s most important to elucidate it.
Otherwise, we don’t know when the 2nd and 3rd incident will occur.
No, we don’t even know if this is the first case.
There might be cases happened before such as people have been missing in the capital.
Of course, in those cases, there might be a night flight or elopement etc.
The turn of 《Red Oath》and 《servant of G.o.ddess》was rather short.
All the testimony of everyone involved ended when the criminals acknowledged the facts of that part.
There was no reason for everyone to remain there.
After that, the officers decided whether the testimony of the criminals was true or they need more interrogation.
And the two parties head to the Hunter Guild.
Every one of the guilds already knows but in order to report the success of the emergency request and to receive a reward of one silver coin for themselves (which worth equal to 1000 gold coins in their mind)
『Can you tell us the result of the interrogation?』(Mile)
Heard Mile’s question, Telyucia answered instead.
『The people of the royal palace won’t do such a thing to the hunter.
But if it’s something that can be to announce in the public they might tell us』(Telyucia)
『Well … ….』(Mile)
It is a problem.
Mile knows the information of those people, especially the myths that should have been disappointing among humans.
Though it’s a rather distorted form, why did they know about it, and why did they come to believe?
In addition, it was impossible to think that was just coincidence, that, the dimensional magic was actually activated.
There might be accomplices elsewhere who can use that magic if we don’t find out their root.
This is a much more important and urgent project than the Ancient Dragon case.
『Well, maybe they will tell Guild Master a little bit.
But the information that the Royal Place tells the Guild Master might not be a big deal … well …』(Telyucia)
Yes, as Telyucia says, the Royal Place might report something about this case to the Guild Master.
And the Guild Master might give some explanation back to the hunters.
However, that’s only the necessary information such as the size and danger of the other party.
They will not be able to tell about the details of the incident.
(I’m in trouble now…

Well, let’s think of another plan!) (Mile)
Because she was surrounded by the big sisters of G.o.ddess’ servants, she didn’t feel fear.
Although there was some fear and confusion when he was kidnapped, as she was able to talk to the big sisters in the G.o.ddess’ s servant for a while. And she was returning on Firii’s shoulder car, which made her completely forget about it.
It seems Faril-chan didn’t get trauma, it was a relief.
And then, although it was out of the meal time, the innkeeper couple was happily receiving pleasure order of four meals.
In the meantime, Mile desperately explained to Faril-chan.
『Therefore, this time, it’s all thanks to me, I followed and tracked down the traces of Faril-chan who was kidnapped!』(Mile)
Although Mile to claim so, for Faril-chan,
Mile looked like a cunning person who is trying to steal the achievement of the 《G.o.ddess’ servant》
(The big sisters of the 《G.o.ddess’ servant》 didn’t boast about achievement but they were pleased with my safety.
Compared to that, Mile-onee-chan is somewhat cunning…) (Faril)
Faril-chan’s reaction wasn’t good.
Mile noticed it, she was impatient.
『It is true!
Following the smell of Faril-chan…』(Rena)
(T.N: Rena doesn’t use a subject (Mile or we) here, which makes Faril-chan thought it was Rena who follow her smell)
And Mile remembered.
Uhm… the morning after the girls stayed at this inn for the first time.
Um… Faril-chan wrote in the guest book, a memorandum.
Maevis is tall and handsome but there’s no breast. Maybe.
Rena seems to be kinky. Maybe she has mixed carnivore beastkin’s blood. The same as me.
I feel Pauline is a bad girl. Probably.
Mile is pet.i.t. Probably.
(This is bad! She thought that Rena was her friend, I can feel a sense of closeness!) (Mile)
As Mile thought that, she was getting more and more impatient.
『 No, that’s wrong! That’s wrong!』(Mile)
Rena’s trio looked at the desperate Mile with a cold eye, a sorry eye, and an ecstasy eye…
