Chapter 16 Karim's Dream
pg 126 ===============================================
Is it really possible, shooting from so far away?
pg 127 ===============================================
pg 128 ===============================================
Good, we can do this.
Talia, // this time, I'll be sure to shoot Aaron down,
and set you free.
Now we just have to lure out the target.
Any contacts from Misuzu and the others?
Not really, seems like our target isn't moving.
pg 129 ===============================================
Today's the third day, huh?
We know the enemy's location, but they are not moving at all....
we can just leave the lookout to the slaves.
Aah, don't mind him, Sir Weinberg is lacking in vocabulary.
pg 130 ===============================================
Aah, I thought so.
What are you implying?
Please stop, we do not need any meaningless conflicts.
Yes, your highness.
Strange, isn't it?
During our last shooting, Esteban and I had hope. That hope was so close to conviction, yet....
Just after one failure, that hope turned into despair so easily.
pg 131 ===============================================
We met you, Misuzu-san, and the others.
And we regained our hope once again.
Geez you, it's still way too early for a thank you.
It just that I remembered something I was told a long time ago.
Even if you think you're in despair, you have hope when there's somebody who extend their helping hand.
That's why you can never give up.
pg 132 ===============================================
Hee, who told you that?
My mom.... // She's no longer with us though.
...I see... // I wonder if it's nice to have a mother...
Nah, never mind.
Say, Karim, can you tell me what your dream is?
After you've defeated Aaron who took away your village, what will you do then?
What about Misuzu-san and Claire-san? // What do you want to do after you've caught the Knightmare?
pg 133 ===============================================
Don't answer a question with a question!
I guess it'd be waking up normally in the morning....
pg 134 ===============================================
And then working, playing, sometimes studying... // Renya hates studying though...
And finally, sleep soundly at night.
Yup, that is my hope, my dream.
I just wish for the days where we don't get attacked by enemies or have to run away.
pg 135 ===============================================
I see, you too, huh?
Yep, we're the same.
pg 136 ===============================================
it's about time.
Girls don't have to carry this kind of thing.
Just make us some delicious food.
Well, that's nice once in a while!
It has its own charm anyway, so why not!
WAHAHA (white text)
pg 137 ===============================================
Joined forces with some outsiders!?
That Esteban group!?
pg 138 ===============================================
There was someone who spotted Karim and some outsiders procuring resources.
Then they should be seaward.
But, why aren't they escaping?
That's obvious! Because they are targeting me, AGAIN!
Increase the guards and widen the search area!
You have to find those outsiders!
Talia, // Esteban and Karim seem to like me so much, don't they?.
pg 139 ===============================================
As my response, why don't I hang them together?
I wonder what kind of pose is good for them? // FUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
pg 140 ===============================================
Let me help you!
pg 141 ===============================================
Sakuradite will explode if you give it a strong impact!
Right, we have to shave it bit by bit.
I'll tell you how to do it later.
So, you want to use that to cause explosions in the premises, huh?
I wonder if it's going to work... // This diversion plan, I mean.
pg 142 ===============================================
But we are not familiar with the land, which is why battle of attrition is not favorable to us. Besides...
We don't know how long the knightmare will stay here.
To start with, is our opponent really a knightmare? // If not, we are just wasting our time here.
This is the only clue we have right now. // Right, young mas... huh? He's not here?
Ah, I'll go look for him then.
I'd just get in the way here anyway.
pg 143 ===============================================
I was wondering how can you just laugh it off.
Guess I'm not desperate enough? Even though I'm supposed to exact revenge?
I don't mean to criticize you. // It's got nothing to do with me anyway, but still...
Well, this is the only thing I've got now, // my reason to live.
Laugh at me if you want.
You can even make fun of me.
pg 144 ===============================================
But you know, it's been five years.
If you've been aiming to take revenge for five years, you just can't think what lies ahead of it.
I'm really excited right now.
pg 145 ===============================================
Renya, I have a favor to ask.
Where did Esteban and that guy go?
pg 146 ===============================================
When it's over, // please take Karim with you to the New World.
After we kill Aaron, they'll after us for real.
Then just escape together.
I can't let Karim be caught up with my life anymore than this.
pg 147 ===============================================
We're not related by blood, but... // I still think of him as my younger brother... so please.
I won't run away!
It's not like I've been following you unwillingly! // All this time!
pg 148 ===============================================
Anyway, let's just think about it after we're done with the problem at hand. // We've got Aaron and his Knightmare guard to beat now.
We'll think over everything after we beat Aaron and save Talia.
pg 149 ===============================================
pg 150 ===============================================
That Karim boy's story, // and the presence within the mansion.
This presence is without a doubt a knightmare.
But why? // Why doesn't Dash control the knightmare?
pg 151 ===============================================
Is there a reason for it?
Or could it be....
