Null Poison Ch61

Letter

After the woman’s laughter finally subsided, well she was still chuckling but she seems to have recovered enough to be able to talk at least.

“ukukuku……I’m really sorry. Fuh fuh, I’m really not trying to make fun of you but it just got to me for some reason.”

“I don’t care. I’m used to it at this point.”

“No seriously…….I really didn’t mean it that way. But still, that seems misfortunate indeed. To have a [Sword God] as a younger brother, it must be rough getting compared to that. You must have had a hard time after the [Heaven’s Blessing] eh?”

Oh yeah I had a hard time alright. But I was having a hard time even before that.

Thinking back, if I had gotten a [Master Swordsman] job or something and had stayed home, just thinking about it sends shivers down my spine.

“Well, it was rough yeah……but all that aside, who are you anyway? I’ve given my introduction. It’s your turn to name yourself.”

“I’m simply a student of the same academy as your younger brother, name’s Mielle Clifford Ettex. I don’t intend to brag but my job is [Sage].”

I did hear about a [Sage] yesterday from the broker.

Contrary to her words, she sure did look very proud when telling her job by the way.

Her age seems similar to min as well, against my original expectations…….

Judging by her looks and her motive to attack me, this disguising woman was almost certainly a member of Klaus’ party.

“A member of Klaus’  party I assume? Were you looking out to make sure bad people weren’t aiming for Klaus or something?”

“oh no, I’m not his party member just yet. I figured that if I killed a couple people who were trying to hurt him, I might get invited to his party that’s all…….But, against all odds I might have hit an even bigger jackpot. I got to meet his older brother after all.”

“I see. If I recall, Klaus had full rights to choosing his party members right—–Alright. Let me write a recommendation letter for Mielle to show to Klaus.”

“Eh? Really? Even though I suddenly attacked you?”

“But you did that for Klaus’ sake no? That means I can trust you if anything.”

“…….Really, thank you. And once again, I’m sorry for laughing at you.”

“Don’t worry about it…….on that note, I intended to write a letter to him so I’ll add the recommendation to it so will you hand it over to him for me?”

“Why of course! Gladly!”

A [Sage] she may be, but at the end of the day she’s just a kid who has only recently come of age.

It only took some sweet talking to get her to trust me.

I’m glad Mielle has no idea of what my and Klaus’ relationship actually was like.

Klaus must not have spoken anything about me and that’s why he was using these underground organizations to find me.

Under the moonlight, I wrote up a letter to Klaus.

Mielle seemed to be fidgeting with expectation and excitement but unfortunately the things I wrote in this letter were designed to antagonize Klaus and her with each other.

I don’t know how much affect this letter will have but I’m hoping it makes things fiery.

I don’t know how much Mielle knows about me but considering she is probably the one that knows the most about me, I need her to never get close to Klaus. That’s why such a letter was necessary.

I wrote it cleverly in a way that even if someone else read it, they wouldn’t be able to tell that something was strange.

But if Klaus reads it, he’ll definitely get the real message.

“Just give this to Klaus. He should let you into his party. And give him this other letter as well.”

“Thank you. I will never forget this debt. I’ll send your regards to Klaus as well.”

“Ah yeah, please do that.”

Without a single clue about my intentions, Mielle took the letters cheerfully and held them like they were something precious. She shook my hands and then returned back to the capital.

I too gave a fake smile to her and saw her off before sitting down back on that rock and drank some water.

…………phew.

I was able to somehow trick my way out of this but that was really dangerous.

If Mielle knew that Klaus wanted me dead, I probably would have been dead on the spot.

Realizing that I am currently being hunted, I need to refocus and rethink everything more than ever before.

But for now, with this Klaus will know that I’m still alive.

But, where and which city I was in, I had not revealed anything in that regard so I should be fine.

There are many towns and cities that are close to the capital which should buy me some time.

Mielle is the only one that knows which direction I headed in, but with the letter as well as acting all friendly when talking about me alone should be enough to make him snap and never listen to anything she has to say.

I am a bit worried for the two still in the capital but they shouldn’t be able to track it all the way to them in just two days.

Telling that to myself, I increased my vigilance towards my surroundings and once again began walking back towards Realzard.
