Chapter 10 – Father’s Lamentation
“……Head. Just where did you find a child like that?”
At the words of the Commander of the Guard Corps, Gariya, I gave a wry smile.
“What? Does it bother you?”
“Yes. With that degree of strength.”
“It’s impossible. For her to have an ability even higher than that of the guys from the Guard Corps at such a young age.”
Next to Gariya, the one working as the Vice Commander of the Guard Corps, Shurei, followed him in speaking.
Although Shurei was young, he had the ability to work as a Vice Commander.
Gariya and Shurei……for both the most influential person and the one just under him of the First Guard Corps to give such praise in just a mere day……recognizing my daughter’s ability.
I unconsciously let out a small sigh.
“If it was just that then it probably would not have been amusing for those guys, but……seeing her independent practice after training, it seems all of those feelings of theirs were completely blown away. Several people thought it seemed interesting so they observed her, but all of their faces, without any exceptions, became pale. Of course, that also included those who heard about it afterwards. It reminds me of the training camp after enlistment.”
The training camp after enlistment……also, for some reason, called Hell’s baptism.
The training contents were personally thought of, and put into practice, by me.
……well, it’s true that I may have made it a bit harder in order to break the pride of those who were overpraised as being strong, but……is it really to the degree that their faces become pale? -is what I thought in my heart while tilting my head.
“I’ll just say it beforehand for now, but……even the training contents that I first gave to her only consisted of half of that, you know?”
More importantly, I had intended for the contents of the training plan that I passed to my daughter to be more gentle.
I became even more unable to understand their reactions.
“……even half of that is too much, I think.”
At my words, the serious Gariya gave a rare retort.
Next to him, Shurei was making a wry smile.
“Even though she’s such a cute child. Isn’t she also at the peak of the time in her life where she still wants to play? Despite that, why is she training so desperately?”
And then, at the words that Shurei continued with, I recalled my daughter.
……it’s true that even without the biased view of a parent’s eyes, my daughter is beautiful.
Though she was young, her body already held a complete sense of beauty.
Platinum blonde hair and transparent light blue eyes like aquamarine gems.
When she grows up, just how beautiful of a woman will she become……even now, she’s the owner of an appearance that could fascinate anyone.
She was a child whose growth I had heartfelt anticipation for.
Such a girl was mixing together with men, training while covered in wounds.
Normally, that would be impossible.
For a noble’s….in addition, a daughter at such a young age, to have their environment degenerate to such a point was utterly impossible.
Even so, the biggest reason why she was undergoing my training, was because I had discovered her natural talent.
Of course, there was also my desire for her to learn some self-defence techniques, after having lost my wife.
However, if it was just that, then I wouldn’t be able to be that strict.
It probably would’ve been fine if I gave training that was lighter and more comfortable, and then that would’ve been the end of it.
The reason why I didn’t do that, was because I wanted to cultivate her talent.
Until it ran out.
In the first place, the start of all this was due to what happened during the funeral of my wife Merida.
At the funeral service, an even greater sorrow surged forward within me when I saw my children, who were grieving like me.
However, there was an instant during that funeral.
A chilling sensation made my whole body break out in goosebumps.
A warning sent out by my instinct the moment I saw a strong person.
That resulted in the goosebumps.
When I was wondering where such a presence came from in the funeral……and searched for the source upon sensing the danger, the moment I realized that it was coming from my own daughter, I honestly questioned my own sanity.
After all, I was feeling something like an aura (Haki) from my daughter who had just passed the age of 5.
The danger that he, who had seen numerous stalwart men, felt.
When he checked his daughter’s state, at some point her tears had stopped, and instead she was biting her lips as if to tear them apart, while the flames of hatred blazed in her eyes.
What she was thinking was obvious with just a single glance.
And the fact that the emotions which manifested as a result of those thoughts were what caused his instinctive alarm bells to ring was also obvious.
“……Melly. Right now, could you just think about your mother?”
Thus, I said that to her.
Mellice looked blankly momentarily, but soon her attention returned to my wife, and she once again began to sorrowfully shed tears.
The funeral service that was wrapped in grief ended far too abruptly. After that, I spend my days like a raging wave.
As if to run away from the sense of loss, I devoted myself to my work.
The wound would never heal.
I’m sure it would be like that for the rest of my life.
Her existence was just that big within me.
However, as the days passed, my heart gradually began to sort itself out……and around the time I completely felt that I would definitely annihilate the bandits-
Mellice begged me.
Saying……that she wanted me to train her.
