“Sera, it’s morning. Get up.”
But I want to sleep a little more…
“Look, Akame is already awake too, you know?”
When I didn’t intend to get up, she began shaking my body.
Uuu… it can’t be helped.
“Yes. Good morning. Wash your face and fix your bed hair.”
My eyes met with Akame, a burrowing snake stretched out from my chest.
She looks fine today as well.
For the past few days, Elena has also been waking up inside my [Hideout].
Although my contract with Akame has been completed, there is no problem, a monster is still a monster.
She also doubles as surveillance just in case.
Although I’ve been able to wake up a little earlier lately, it’s uncomfortable being woken up even before that…
The day I picked up the Akame and discussed it with Seliana in her room, we went to consult with Grandpa when he came back.
Should it be called rapid development?
It progressed quickly and became so serious.
First of all, my contract and application for the burrowing snake were completed without delay.
Bringing live monsters into the capital is illegal, and tamed monsters are called familiars, but in order to bring familiars with them, they need to apply to the order of knights.
If you don’t do that, in the worst case the master will be caught and the familiar will be killed.
For that reason, I was immediately taken to the order of knights’ headquarters, where my hair and blood were used as ink to stamp the contract between the master and the familiar.
It seems like it could be anywhere, but mine is on my left upper arm and Akame is on her head.
It reminded me of the stamp injection in my previous life, but there was no pain or anything.
By doing this, it seems that you will be able to know each other’s whereabouts somehow.
Even if it listens to what you say, since it is a monster, it must be in a state where you can grasp its whereabouts.
And at the time of the contract, it was necessary to give it a name.
Wondering what would be a suitable name for a snake…
There were also snake names like Orochi, Jormungand, and Ouroboros.
That’s all I can come up with.
It completely undermines the names…
I should have read more myths.
As a result, I chose [Akame] because she has red eyes.
The air became a little subtle, but in the end, we concluded that it was good since it was easy to understand.
After the matter of the familiar was settled, next was the building that seems to be a warehouse in question.
First of all, the next day, I got on a carriage with several knights, including Grandpa, in order to show them around, but thinking that it would be intimidating to be a girl alone among all uncles, a female knight accompanied me.
A female knight is an elite whose basic mission is to guide a female royal family member, with skills at the level of Elena, and a member of high-ranking nobility.
I thought that they were so kind to let such a person go out of her way to accompany me, but I guess the higher-ups took this situation that seriously.
The next day, they stepped in at once, investigated, and suppressed.
The building has 2 floors underground and 2 floors above ground and is a warehouse for a large merchant company that does business in several western countries. At the same time, it’s like an auction house for introducing or selling products bought from the kingdom to western aristocrats.
However, that’s only what’s on the surface. Behind the scenes, it was a facility to bring the monsters captured in Mesaria to the royal capital and sell them to the western aristocrats.
Of course, it’s illegal.
There were many large and small monsters inside the building, but it seems that some of them were already dead.
Akame was probably attached to one of them.
Furthermore, as a means of passing inspections, a hole was dug under the city wall, connecting the basement of the building from the inn in the downtown area where slaves and mercenaries were staying outside the royal capital.
It seems that they didn’t notice it until now because it was a too straightforward brute force method.
Originally, it was said that the percentage of nobles from several countries who acquired familiars when leaving was higher than those from other countries, so that made them take action this time, but even the order of knights was surprised by the situation beyond their expectations.
They’ve already contacted other kingdoms, realizing that it probably happens not only in Mesaria but also in the kingdoms belonging to the Alliance.
There may be some changes in the relations with the West.
No, I never thought that a little detour on the way home from Alex’s errand would turn into an international problem.
