The Monster King
Today, Argo-san told me a review of the Ars kingdom’s knight troops!
There are three knight troops in the Ars kingdom.
Imperial Guard Troops, Kingdom Knight Troops, Frontier Knight Troops.
The previously mentioned Imperial Guard Troops protect the royals, the Kingdom Knight Troops protect the whole nation, and the Frontier Knight Troops protect the frontier lands.
The Izel fort was entrusted with the Frontier Knight Troops.
Actually, Leon-san isn’t just the leader of the Izel fort, he is also the leader of all Frontier Knight Troops.
But most of the Frontier Knight Troops’ knights would return to the royal capital once the Monster Flood was over, and they were practically attached to the Kingdom Knight Troops.
The Kingdom Knight Troops is divided again into three groups,
The Twin Eagle Knight Troops, with red flag color and two-headed eagle’s symbol.
The Fierce Tiger Knight Troops, with yellow flag color and a tiger’s symbol.
The Wolf Knight Troops, with the blue flag color and a wolf’s symbol.
Such are their divisions.
The people of the Ars kingdom seems to refer to each knight troops based on the color of the flag. For example, one belongs to the red knight troops.
Then for the Monster Flood this time, the Imperial Guard Troops and the Fierce Tiger Knight Troops remained to protect the royal capital, while the remaining two knight troops were headed to each fort: Izel, Julei, and Chris.
Fu~. I managed to remember them.
Thank goodness, thank goodness.
It seemed that there were bound to be noble men attached within the knight troops, so there were a large quantity of knights.
The high-ranking people and the female knights were using lodging houses, while the others were sleeping in the plaza.
The adventurers also arrived at the Izel fort one by one, camping outside the fort. It seemed like a discrimination for some reason, but it couldn’t be helped since there was no other place left to set up the tents…
But the place where the adventurers camped had various people in it, making the place look like a foreign country!
As expected, there were no demon tribe, but there was a dwarf swordsman, a beastman-swordsman, and an elf magician!
The three of them would form a party composed of four people along with the human priest, making them seemingly a famous S-rank party in Elysia.
It seemed that they happened to be doing quests in Ars Kingdom when they received the report of Monster Flood, then they came to the Izel fort.
And then, and then!
There was something amazing. When I came to play at the campsite, I came to get along with those people of the famous party, and we completely became friends.
If I were to say what kind of people they were…
The dwarf Gazad-san had a real green skin, slightly taller than me, and he was a short and stout person. But he was more quick-witted than he appeared to be. He was originally a blacksmith, but while testing out the sharpness of the blades he made, he became a swordsman when he noticed.
The beastman Virna-san was a female with darkish skin and outstanding grey ears. She seemed to be a wolf beastman, and her tail was really, really fluffy.
Aah…just a little bit is fine, please let me touch it next time!

The elf Naruruth-san was, how to say it…had an image befitting that of an elf, and she was a beautiful onee-san. She was much, much prettier than the elf princess described in the fairy tale.
Her ears were sharp, and they seemed to twitch when she was happy. Like when she was playing with Noir, I observed that her ears were twitching several times.
The only human in the party, Simon-san was Frank-san’s disciple, but how to say it…he was a very straightforward person. He seemed like a worldly-wise man who was managing everyone’s relationship, for the other members of the party had strong personalities.
According to Argo-san, when he became Frank-san’s disciple, he seemed to be mentally tempered in various ways.
U~n. Certainly, I felt like I could understand…
Everyone seemed to be wondering why a small child like me was present in the fort, but since I was tagging along Amanda-san every time I went to the campsite due to being forbidden to go there alone, perhaps they all thought that I was Amanda-san’s little sister, that’s my hunch.
They seemed to think I often came to Izel fort to meet my big sister, but since the Monster Flood happened, I couldn’t go home…
More or less, I am a sage. I definitely can be of any use! When I said that, I felt like they didn’t quite believe me.
W-well. Even though I said I was a sage, I couldn’t be really of any use at this time, so there was no problem in them not believing me.
Speaking of which, there was no one of the fairy tribe, huh~?
Although the fairy tribe was famous among the players because we were able to make small girl character…
Then, there didn’t seem to be any player from Elysia Online. Could it be…I thought of it, but…
Haa. It couldn’t be helped…
The people called as the strong rankers among the adventurers and the knight troops went to subjugate the monsters every day.
The number of monsters increased day by day as expected, and it was only a matter of time until the monster king appears.
That day finally arrived.
The first notice was brought by a magical bird from the Chris fort near the beastman country.
It seemed that the Monster King finally arrived at a place near the Chris fort.
The Monster King was a Goblin King.
“Yuuri, how’s Noir doing?!”
Amidst the fort which was bustling after receiving the news, Frank-san arrived to my place.
“For now, she’s just as usual. Luan-kun…too, is just like usual, isn’t it?”
Luan-kun grew slightly bigger, but it was still positioned on top of Frank-san’s head as it looked down at me with its black pupils. Yup. It’s cute as usual.
“Yeah. I was worried if they’d get possessed when the king appeared, but for now, it seems to be fine.”
“Yes. Thank goodness.”
“But aren’t you relieved? We don’t know how it will be if we approach the king, though.”
Frank-san then said things such as ‘Prepare yourself’ or words that have come out of his mouth for so many times until now. The words that he said to me until now seemed like they were also meant as reminder to himself, but I wonder if it is just my imagination…
“Tch. Good grief, I didn’t think that I would be moved by affection this much.”
“I can tell that, you know? After all, Frank-san is kind.”
I said as I smiled, then Frank-san patted my head until my hair became messy.
“Such cheeky words for a small child like you.”
Really-! Even though I have told him many times to stop patting my head like that since it will mess my hair-!
“I’m not ‘small’!”
When I denied it, I noticed that Frank-san’s ears turned a bit redder.
Fufuu. I’m mentally an adult, you know?
Although I felt like I lost my confidence recently, I’m an adult, after all, okay?
I’m an adult, don’t ever question it!1
Fufu~n. I am, an a-dult-!
“Well, but since it’s Goblin King, it is really better than other kings.”
It seemed that the most frequent monster king that appeared was the Goblin King. Compared to the other kings, it seemed to not be so strong, and it could be defeated normally.
“Thank goodness it’s not a Dark Panther King.”
Frank-san patted my head again.
“Once we arrive there, can you chant Area Protect Shield to everyone, Yuuri?”
“I won’t know until I try, but…I think it should be fine as long as I target everyone—from the knights and the adventurers, probably…?”
“Well, those are about all who will be fighting the monster king.”
“Later, I’ll need to chant it again after 30 minutes. Do you think I should attack whenever I have a leeway?”
Actually, I had been thinking all this time about how I could be of any use to everyone during fighting the monster king. If possible, I wish there won’t be anyone dying, and then I wondered what I should do to help make it come true.
I thought of chanting Area Protect Shield and then Area Heal at fixed intervals, but that would be too conspicuous and Argo-san rejected it.
If I were that conspicuous, I might get kidnapped by a scary person, so he said…
I wonder who that scary person would be…?
“Rather than attacking, I hope you’ll heal the leader. I will be devoting myself to healing those who have fallen.”
“Then, it will be better for us to form a party before going.”
“Right. We are departing as soon as the preparations are completed, so I’ll call you before that.”
As I sent Frank-san off, I lifted up Noir who was calmly positioning itself at my feet.
“Noir…Let’s do our best.”
My hands and legs were trembling, but…
But let’s defeat the Goblin King along with everyone!
