Arc 2: The Reconstruction – Change Chapter 3

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

In the early morning.

I went to visit Dio-sama’s office.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“I wasn’t expecting you to return me the coat and short sword so early in the morning.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

As I kneeled down, I could hear Dio-sama muttering. Though surprised, he wasn’t angry.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“It isn’t something I would need right now.”

“I see. So? What would you be returning to? My conversation partner? Or as Sophia’s attendant?”

“Nope. I am not returning to any role, but to graduate from my current role.”

“Graduate?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Dio-sama asked a question in return. I guess that means he didn’t expect it.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Yep. I am thinking of graduating from my role as the Strategist of Arkwright who fought with Diorood Arkwright during the civil war.”

“Graduate from the Strategist of Arkwright? Are you planning to become an even bigger existence?”

“In the first place, I was just following the flow and was fighting only for Dio-sama and Sophia. However, though getting thrown into flow, I did protect some things. Also, I know that my current self was hurting someone. So I thought it’s time to resolve myself.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Saying that, I stood up.

Dio-sama looked at such a me while smiling. He seems to have sensed many stuff from my words.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“To resolve yourself…. I never expect to hear Yukito say that.”

“Well, it’s just a feeling that it would be good if I can do that.”

“You have no confidence?”

“Honestly, no. I don’t like being burdened with responsibility. I am worried if it will overload my capability.”

“You will be crushed if you do it alone. It’s the advice from the experienced.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

As he said that, he took out a piece of cloth from the table.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“I shall return this. Since I have also returned the coat as well.”

“You were still holding onto it? I thought you would have already thrown it.”

“Of course not. This is the item which we swear to live on on. I won’t throw away such a thing.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

He passed it to me after saying that.

The nostalgic feel of the cloth flows through the hand. I quickly put on the haori. I wonder why I have a better peace of mind than wearing the coat.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“What are you going to do with the command of Nox?”

“I shall leave it to Dio-sama. Just that, as only Kaguya-sama can make the commands, please do move on her words.”

“Understood. For the time being, I shall take charge of your men. But, for just a while, you know? I can’t really put in order so much people with such unique characteristics.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Dio-sama laughed, saying that. I don’t think those words were truly intended. He should be able to do it if he tried. Just that, the extra effort he has to make for it is quite of a waste.

It’s not like Nox has the ability to move at one’s will, even for the army supreme commander, Dio-sama. It’s still under Kaguya-sama’s direct control. That’s the case even if I am removed from the position of Nox’s commander. I guess it’s difficult for Dio-sama to move them.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Let’s see. They are the people I gathered. After settling various stuff, I am thinking of leading them again. Until then, please do take care of them.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Saying that, I bowed towards Dio-sama and faced back to him and left the office.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

■■■

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

My next destination is Bayd’s office. However, close to the office, I was called out to.

By the person himself, Bayd.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Do you have business with me, right?”

“How did you know?”

“You are approaching my office. Isn’t that obvious? So? Having taken off your coat, what is it that you want?”

“I am here just as Yukito Kurei. I was thinking of making a deal with you.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Bayd’s brows moved slightly towards my words.

Because of my coming-out, Bayd is in quite a pinch. He most likely thought of that matter when it comes to a deal. In truth, it’s right.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“What’s your motive?”

“From now on, I shall teach Kaguya-sama everything that she needs. Of course, that will make your plan of making Kaguya-sama your puppet a total failure.”

“And you want me not to obstruct you? Then, what would you do for me?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

I chuckled towards Bayd biting on the deal. Likely due to the pinch he is in, he bit on quick. I guess he had quite the bad memories from my coming-out. Well, he was left off because it was in that situation of my coming-out. Normally, it wouldn’t be just bad memories. It would certainly be execution.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Not a thing. The only thing I will do is to teach Kaguya-sama various matters. That’s why no matter what rumours you made or say that my words are just lies, she would not bother.”

“It would be easier for me if you would say that you lied.”

“I can’t do that. Because I would not allow liars to stay by the side of Kaguya-sama. I do believe there’s no loss on your side? After all, if you think about world domination, it’s necessary to have a strong and brilliant king. I am going to be raising one, so I think our interests should be inlined though.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

After thinking for a while, he looked at me with half-opened eyes. He is trying to read my aim. I am sorry but I do not have any. As I have said, I just want the time to be able to teach Kaguya-sama various stuff and does not want to be disturbed.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“What do you benefit from it?”

“I can raise a king that I want to serve. I have no interest in power and the higher status. It’s easier to do things when the higher-ups are excellent, you know. Unlike you.”

“You really can speak. I wonder how much of that are true. However, that’s fine. I got it. I won’t stand in your way. In return, do not make any other moves. Devote yourself as Kaguya’s teacher.”

“As you wish.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Smiling slightly, I faced my back to Bayd. Though just a verbal promise, for this level of matter, such aloofness is more than enough. If broken, the one who will receive the worst damage is him. Though even not, he will still take some.

With this, the preparations is pretty much completed. What’s left depends on Kaguya-sama.

Well then, it’s time to study.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

■■■

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

As I entered Kaguya-sama’s office, Kaguya-sama is inside looking through the documents with Sophia by the side, assisting Kaguya-sama.

How should I say this, it’s a good view. For the eyes. Though it’s already a sight of sore eyes for rare beauties like them to stand alongside, it’s even better that both are closely smiling together.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“How’s work?”

“Because of Sophia’s help, it’s going really well.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

While Kaguya-sama said that with a smile, Sophia also smiled gently. As if an elder sister is looking at her younger sister. Though Kaguya-sama is the older one.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Is that so? Then let me help too. Let’s get this over with quickly. It should be rather quick with this amount.”

“Only this amount…..? You mean this?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Kaguya-sama’s face cramped. There are 3 piles of documents on the table. There were more when I was doing all sorts of stuff in the castle. Even with Mikana’s support, a day is enough to complete them.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“I can’t imagine how long it takes just to look through the whole pile though….”

“That’s the point. First, you do not need to read every single thing.”

“Really? But, I won’t understand what the document is about, isn’t that right?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

She smiled bitterly when tilting her head. No wonder, she took some time for the work. She likely read everything single thing about the received document. That’s why she also realized that there wasn’t any important matters sent to her.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“You just need to get the main point. For example….”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

I took out one of the document and read briefly. I am quick at reading articles. It’s obvious as I was able to read the information and status that was on the display which will disappear soon.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“This is a type of request where there are troubled immigrants near the borders and are requesting for permission to set up a temporary shelter. What would you do?”

“Etto, I permit!”

“Okay, then let’s go on with the next one.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

After having gotten permission from Kaguya-sama, I stamped on the document. I believe the time taken was around a minute. Though I would like to increase the pace, I guess it’s like this since it’s at the initial stage.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Yukito. If you are going to take that role, then I won’t have a job to do.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Looking behind, there was Sophia with her swelled cheeks. Certainly if I am going to be the one explaining the documents, Sophia would have nothing to do.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Sorry sorry. Then, can I leave explanations to Kaguya-sama to you? I will do my own work.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

At the side of Kaguya-sama’s desk. At the table where usually an assistant would settle himself, I left the bundle of documents there, shook my head and swung my arms.

During the period when Kaguya-sama is pondering about her decision, Sophia started reading the next document, summarising it.

I think of Anna who is supposed to be sitting on where I am for a bit.

Right now, as the Imperial Guards is being entrusted with the security within the castle, Anna is engaging with the disputes happening in the castle. It’s because of the struggle between Dio-sama and Bayd. Due to that, Anna was being removed from her assistant role to Kaguya-sama and was unable to bear it. Though it seems that that was the case since before, it seems that there were days where they don’t even meet. Seriously, I feel so sorry for her.

Anna believed that it’s her life to assist Kaguya-sama and it should be a job just for her. The fact that I am teaching Kaguya-sama various stuff by her side, is something she can’t stand. If I don’t follow up somehow, she’s definitely going to nuts.

After thinking so much, I realized something. Within the job scope of the Imperial Guards, there’s also to guard Sophia. Naturally, there’s also Sophia’s escorts but none of them were seen at the front of the room.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Sophia. Where’s your escort?”

“As Kaguya-sama said she didn’t need her Imperial Guards, I also conveyed to my escorts that ‘I will be fine.’”.

“Ah, is that so…..”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

What a harsh thing to do. Kaguya-sama and Sophia too. Surely, the Imperial Guards and the escorts should be feeling down. Though it’s true that they are so strong that they don’t need them, even then, it’s going to be a shock that the target to be escorted that they are unnecessary.

Let me go console both sides after this. And have both of them have their escorts attached to them from tomorrow onwards. For people who hold pride in their jobs, there’s nothing worse than having their job taken away.

I guess I have to teach this firmly as well.

Thinking of that, I started to settle the documents quickly that were in front of me.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

■■■

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Finishing work quickly, free time were used for studying. It’s something I have mentioned to Kaguya-sama. Originally, Bayd and Dio-sama only passed on work that Kaguya-sama is capable of completing. That’s why creating time isn’t difficult.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“To start off, let me explain the current situation of Veris’s capital. In the capital, the power struggle between Dio-sama and Prime Minister Fern is unfolding. ”

“I wonder why are they fighting each other…?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Kaguya-sama muttered, while showing an expression that doesn’t understand.

Now then, how should I explain this. This fight is not a normal power struggle. It’s not that Dio-sama wanted power. Just that, he wanted to crush the opposing faction. On the other hand, Bayd is trying to defend against Dio-sama’s attack and wanted to keep the immense power in his hand.

To say it simply.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“I guess they didn’t like each other.”

“Yukito. That phrasing is slightly…”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

As I was faulted by Sophia, I decided to explain in more detail. In regards to this power struggle, it’s still not Kaguya-sama’s time to move so I don’t really want to take so much time.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“From the previous civil war, there are people who made achievements and those that didn’t made in the country. Naturally, people with achievements were favoured and those that did not were discontented. Dio-sama’s faction is mainly made of those that did acquired achievements or those that wanted to follow Dio-sama and Prime Minister Fern’s group are those that aren’t of those groups.”

“The civil war triggered this?”

“Yes. People who followed Dio-sama is trying to prevent themselves from being threatened, while Prime Minister Fern’s followers want to receive better treatment so they are trying to grab onto power at this stage. It’s fine to let them go on with the fight from now on.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

As I said that, Kaguya-sama started thinking. It’s a better reaction than nothing. Likely, she’s thinking why it’s not necessary to bother about it.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Kaguya-sama. Right now, Veris.. Nope, what is it that Kaguya-sama wants to do the most?”

“Let’s see…. To avoid fighting with other countries…. I guess?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Kaguya-sama replied to Sophia’s query.

Towards that answer, she nodded and smiled.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Yes. That’s why I believe we do not have the leisure to care about the fight in the capital right now. ”

“B, but if we are fighting among ourselves, not to say a war, even negotiations wouldn’t go smoothly, right?”

“It should be fine. The leaders of both factions are superior. In the emergency of Veris, they likely would take a temporary truce. Also, we do not have the spare strength to point at their fights durings the negotiations with other countries. Because our work would increase.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

I showed Kaguya-sama a piece of paper, saying that.

It’s a map of the whole continent shaped something like a diamond. Though it says it’s a map on the display, and only I am able to see it, it’s a rough sketch of the map that I have drawn.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Is this the map of the whole continent?”

“Yep. But it’s a rough one though.”

“I believe there should be map of the whole continent stored in the library, should I bring it over?”

“It’s fine. This is enough.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Saying that, I pointed at the East of the continent that wrote ‘Aether’.

From now on, it’s diplomacy. First, Veris have to make the Empire of Aether an ally no matter what. Why do you think is the reason?

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“It’s because they have a strong navy right?”

“Yes. The world’s most developed navy is very likely to suppress Veris’s coastal around easily. And if Albion took a pincer attack with them, Veris will perish.”

“If it’s about the navy, wouldn’t the Dominion of Imperieuse be the same?”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Sophia questioned. To that, Kaguya-sama replied with a slightly good mood.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“Even if the Dominion is our enemy, the Empire should be capable of taking them out. However, if it’s the other way round, we’ll be giving them the ability to embark our lands. That’s why it’s important to gain the Empire as an ally first. And the thoughts of not wanting to fight the Empire would make the Dominion our ally. In that case, Albion will be surrounded by 3 sides. Albion wouldn’t carelessly step into Veris at that point..”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Likely because it’s finally her field of expertise, Kaguya-sam replied promptly. Perhaps, she might have the nature of those people that thinks well in sports, but not so well when studying.

To teach such people, it’s best to teach them using their expertise as an example.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“As you said. How do you think you can make them your ally?”

“That’s….”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

Her expression changed from a elated one to a troubled pondering one. Her expression is really changing today.

Though Sophia was also thinking, it doesn’t seem like that got any of those thoughts that go, “That’s it”.

Going by standard practice, it’s to send an envoy and deepen friendships, but right now, there’s no time.

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

“What’s important is to explain the merits of uniting with Veris. Though their navy is strong, any other thing aren’t that prominent. Especially the fact that they did not fight a war for about 10 years, their soldiers’ experience aren’t enough. On the hand, during the previous king’s reign, the army of Veris have been fighting throughout the period. In terms of experience, we are the first among the 5 big countries. In a 1v1, I believed we wouldn’t be defeated.”

“Would that be a merit to the Empire of Aether?”

“Experienced and superior commanders are rare. They are aware of their own weakening army. They likely do not wish to fight. However, the situation is changing. As it is, even if they assist in taking down Veris, what’s next is them being the target. So what can they do? Assisting Veris, the situation would be turned into a stalemate. And then, they would wish to redo their outfitting and training for the army during this period. And that is something Veris can assist. Just by dispatching talents. That’s the merit to explain to Empire of Aether. For now.”

(trytranslations.com at your service!)

After saying to that point, while looking at Kaguya-sama who’s agreeing to it and Sophia, I muttered in my heart that, “I doubt it’s going to be so smooth though.”.
