Eliza chapter 188 – Suppression and a strange feeling

Although I was able to use my coat to cover myself and block some of the debris from the flesh explosion, I was still blown away and rolled several times on the ground in the tunnel. Some of my hair seems to have been singed, I could smell a nauseating burnt scent.

I tried to catch my breath and recover my balance, but I couldn’t stop myself from a coughing fit and regurgitating what was in my stomach. My vomit scattered everywhere as it made splashing sounds.

I was so dizzy that I could only crawl along the ground to try and hide in the darkness again.

Meanwhile, Mefuri was screaming from the pain from my sword having pierced her. She was crying such things such as how unbelievable the pain was. Her high-pitched childish voice echoed throughout the tunnel and my head. The other remaining children shrunk themselves against the walls as much as they possibly could, as if to hide from her.

She’s reacting this strongly to having a sword stuck in her shoulder. Is she actually not trained for battle?

“-Rashiok, Claudia!”

Because I’m currently in a state where I’m too dizzy to move, I can only rely on them. I twisted my body while breathing quickly to look at Mefuri who was in the light. Mefuri seemed to have completely lost control of her temper and was angrily yelling while attempting to peel one of the children off of the wall.

“Hurry up and obey me!! Do you want to be exploded and die that quickly!!?”

She was threatening the child with the sword that she removed from her shoulder, while looking around her uneasily.

“…Hey, don’t get away from that wall!! This tunnel might collapse at any moment if she explodes that wall! Unless she’s willing to risk being buried alive, she can’t kill you guys!!”

I endured my nausea and summoned my energy to shout that towards the children, while Mefuri angrily responded with a “shut up!!” in my general direction.

-Aiming for Mefuri’s momentary distraction, Claudia suddenly attacked her soundlessly from the darkness and sent her petite body flying.

“Wah!? You… get off me!!”

Did Claudia throw away her blood and flesh-covered clothes, she was basically in only her underwear, but every time Mefuri scratched at Claudia’s hair and arms, I saw the spark of tiny explosions.

“Claudia…!”

However, being the most competent knight I knew, Claudia didn’t even let out a groan. She bit her lips to endure the pain, and in a break between the small explosions, even while covered in blood she was able to grab on to Mefuri and throw Mefuri over her own back in a brilliant move.

As Mefuri hit the ground, Claudia instantly had her sword against Mefuri’s throat.

The underground passageway returned to dead silence. The remaining children seemed to be trembling while keeping as quiet as possible and observing Claudia and Mefuri.

“-Normally, I use spears.”

Claudia began calmly talking to Mefuri who was still on the ground.

“The Rolentsor family’s spears are so sharp that a piece of paper falling on the spear tip would be sliced in two. The swords we use are also the sharpest around.”

As Claudia talked, Mefuri attempted to do something with her right hand, but Claudia used her empty left hand to twist Mefuri’s arm behind her back. Claudia’s expression distorted as Mefuri screamed again.

“However, I loathe the idea of killing children. That’s why I would appreciate it if you could give up without resisting. You should just sit there obediently and wait for my master to decide whether to kill you or not.”

“…W, what!? D, don’t joke with me – Eek!?”

Rashiok suddenly appeared on top of Mefuri unexpectedly as she was ranting. Claudia was still smiling calmly while holding her sword against Mefuri’s throat.

“Well, I’m saying it for your own sake that you should sit there obediently. Because of my code of chivalry, I prefer to avoid doing anything to a child… but this draconis here is just like my lord, even if you’re only a young girl, there won’t be any mercy for you.”

……Um, hey.

Well, I suppose it’s just like she says.

Just as I wished, Claudia was able to capture Mefuri alive, but I had a subtle indescribable feeling as I watched her begin to tie Mefuri up.

At any rate, we’ve successfully captured the escaped prisoners with this.

With Rashiok helping me, I stood up again in the tunnel that returned to darkness once more.

The thick smell of blood lingered in the air. I felt like I could hear auditory hallucinations of the children that were still crying out in fear.

  1. Wow it’s been a while.
    They should kill her already. I wonder if they gonna get some information out of that spoiled little brat. It won’t be that hard I guess since she doesn’t have any tolerance for pain.

      • Hm… regardless of what she needs, I think there are ways to suppress her. Especially since Eliza discover she is cruel but not hardened warrior. So threats and torture would work well. If she is fully restrained in separated building for example, I don’t think she would try exploding anything in fear of self-burial.
        The clincher here is this girl has no guts to sacrifice herself.

  3. Hope boy. Waiting for this chapter has caused me some withdrawal symptoms. Haha

    Thanks for the chapter but did something happened to cause such a long absnece? Hope it is just taking a break and nothing serious.

  4. Interesting, after finding out that Claudia doesn’t kill (children at least), I was wondering what she thought about the fact that her lord does. It seems her code only applies to herself and she doesn’t mind Eliza and Rashiok killing. She’s even using it as a scare tactic against Mefuri. xD

    Eliza’s hair got burned. I once accidentally singed some of my hair burned over a candle. Nothing serious, but burnt hair shrivels up real fast. 😦

    • If I were Claudia, I would not think badly of it because Eliza is a child herself so it is just like killing people of ulher age, I think?

      Also, Claudia’s willingness to kill children only when Eliza says so shows how loyal she is to her and how she trusts her judgement on all matters. Claudia’s been with for how many years long. She already know how that Eliza would not do anything without thinking.

    • She is chivalrous knight but war is not stuff from fairy tale and when your enemy lower themselves to mow down your people, knight or not they still have to choose their own people.
      I don’t think Claudia would think badly of Eliza for doing what she got to do, after all unlike Claudia, Eliza is a domain lord and she is responsible for her people. I am sure after years accompanying Eliza, she knows this kind of cruelty hurts all of them (except Rashiok because he is an animal aha ha ha)to a degree but it have to be done, and he cost someone in their position have to pay.

      Eliza being Eliza won’t care about her hair though.

    • I’m happy that Mefuri is finally restrained. Is she gonna be an ally or will she do something stupid? It’s unlikely that she’ll be an ally but who knows what will happen? It’s not an impossibility.

      • my guess is that the slavemark the children have is somekind of mark where mefuri can sense them and their surounding as well as can let them explode, so she might have felt the slave army of densel coming near atempted a jail break and most likely wanted the children to explode to spread panic and confusion and later let the slave army be suicide bombers on the enemy

  6. Thanks for the chapter~ :3
    You’ve given me a salvation after so many days without Eliza chapter and a tiresome week of holyday. I thank you for your hardwork, Imperfectluck.
    Aah… finally the conclusion of the bomber girl fight. Kind of disappointed that she’s not kiled after what she did. But I guess it’s fine since she seems to be an easy target for interrogation. Hopefully she holds a lot information regarding the Rindarl ‘magicians’ and their movement.

  7. Eliza looks so .. handsome… thats not the right word to use for a girl though is it 😦 my heart breaks for the little girl that shouldve existed.

  8. Ano, Eliza-dono, I do not think that is your hallucination, when you arise covered in grisly gore with your infamous red eyes and reputation for not

    Also ,what are the chances that Mefuri is a reincarnator whose kept on thinking “Riajuu should just explode” until it actually happened? Third, I just realized the likely inspiration source for the plush toy bomber in “A Certain Scientific Railgun”..

    Anyway, thanks for bringing us the conclusion to a fantastically gory arc.

  9. She can make explosions with just her nails. Her own dead skin cells? For god sakes, how do they intend to imprison her, cut off her hands and suspend her from the ceiling?
