World teacher – Chapter 15

Chapter edited by myself and Guest04

I had written a huge thing here, but I’ll shorten it in one sentence: Sometimes, I’ll slightly change a sentence if I feel that it’s weird when translated accurately, that’s because Japanese and English are two separate languages and a lot of things just don’t really make sense or sound very unnatural when translated too accurately.

Also, the title might be confusing, however, it just means that the training is easy but not for everyone, if you prefer, Sirius thinks it’s easy but it’s really not, I didn’t modify the title or anything, blame the author, I really don’t see how I could make the meaning clearer so just this time, I decided to explain it.

Whatever, for now, I’ll stop writing, here is chapter 15 of World Teacher, enjoy!

Easy training (Depending on the point of view)

I honestly returned Emilia’s confession.

Specifically, I told her: “I’m still a child and I’m your teacher so I can’t respond to your feelings…”, it’s quite a bad answer.

She got depressed, or rather, I thought she would.

【”I’m just yearning for you of my own accord, so don’t mind it. That being the case, please pat me again from time to time.”】(Emilia)

Answering so with a big smile, she went back inside the household. Perhaps she favors me as a benefactor that she can depend on, at least, I think that’s a strong part of her yearning. I think it’s the kind of feeling where one wants to become like a person who achieved something great. In short, her romantic feelings aren’t complete yet; it’s safe.

As I left her alone while sighing out a breath of relief, Noel came out looking stressed, as if she hadn’t done enough already. It was annoying so I iron claw’d her.

【”Nya~aaaa~! Go-good job, Emi-chan~!”】(Noel)

Wow, you’re praising Emilia while putting up with the pain. Your endurance is progressing fast, isn’t it? Then, as expected, the one who stirred up Emilia was you huh, if so, I’ll take care of you thoroughly today.

I left the fallen, dead tired Noel and it became time for breakfast. Today’s breakfast is French toasts made by Dee. Elena gracefully eats them, Dee nods satisfiedly, and eating relishly are Emilia, Reus and….. Noel. Even though you were limping just a short while ago, you recover real quick, huh?

Seeing the two siblings eating that way, Dee talked joyfully.

【”What do you two think?”】(Dee)
【”It’s delicious. It’s my first time eating something this tasty.”】(Emilia)
【”It’s really delicious, big bro Dee. It’s amazing that you can make something like this.”】(Reus)
【”This is a dish I was taught by Sirius-sama”】(Dee)
【”【”What?”】”】(Emilia & Reus)

At this point, the faces of the two looking at me split into two kinds. On one hand, a face with eyes sparkling from amazement, on the the other hand, a clearly unpleased face. No need to explain which is whose.

【”There is no need to be surprised. Most of the dishes that Dee makes were taught to him by Sirius-sama.”】(Elena)
【”That’s right. He introduced a whole new world of flavor.”】(Noel)
【”Wow~ It’s amazing, Sirius-sama”】(Emilia)
【”Hm-hmph. This isn’t tasty at all!”】(Reus)

This, even though he said that it’s delicious just some time ago, Reus seems to want to repulse me thoroughly. No matter how much of a child he is, it’s still rude to the one who made the food, right? As I thought of scolding him briefly, Noel made a move ahead of me.

【”Hey! Saying something like that is no good, Reus-kun.”】(Noel)
【”This is undoubtedly delicious. Here, it’s more tasty if you put honey on it, so please eat.”】(Noel)
【”It’s a delicious dish…”】(Reus)
【”Right? You wouldn’t be able to eat it if not for Sirius-sama and Dee, so apologize properly, alright?”】(Noel)
【”…I’m sorry…”】(Reus)
【”Well done. As a reward, I’ll tearfully split my share with you”】(Noel)

…… Who the hell is that? Is it Elena disguised with Noel’s skin?
As I got surprised by her skills that made the sulky child apologize, Elena quietly whispered to my ear.

【”Though she’s usually like “that”, she is very good with children’s treatment. She’s especially caring given that those children went through circumstances similar to hers.”】(Elena)

She is very skillful at child care? Come to think of it, up to now, there wasn’t anyone younger than Noel except for me. It’s something like, since there was only me, and I don’t act like I’m younger, her forte only appeared after the pair came here.

I’ll raise Noel’s evaluation just a little.

【”Hmmm, big sis Noel. You don’t have to give it if it’s going to make you cry that much”】(Reus)
【”No! I’m the big sister, so I can handle this much!”】(Noel)
【”… Do you want me to cook some more?”】(Dee)
【”【”I do~!”】”】(Noel & Reus)

…Maybe I shouldn’t after all.

Having finished eating breakfast, the siblings and I came to the garden.

The training finally starts from today. Everyone change clothes to ones easy to move in, and for starters, we get to warm-up exercises.

【”Listen, It’s different from fighting, but before practice, you have to do some physical exercises.”】(Sirius)
【”Why is that?”】(Emilia)
【”Because if you suddenly move violently, you might get injured. To understand your body, you have to exercise it or your reaction speed will grow dull. Regardless of the fighting, It’d be shameful if you get injured in training, right?”】(Sirius) (TLN: I’m sorry for the readers who actually got injured in training, it happens even to the best, aka, me)
【”Understood. Hey, Reus, do as Sirius-sama said, alright?”】(Emilia)

They mimic my movements and stretch repeatedly, and we stop when our bodies start to warm up.

【”Well, to begin with, I want to hear about you two’s abilities. Do you have any battle experience?”】(Sirius)
【”I have a little bit. Though it’s from hunting which perplexed my father.”】(Emilia)
【”I don’t. However, I’m confident in my movements!”】(Reus)
【”I see. Then, I want to assess your endurance, let’s have you run in the garden for now.”】(Sirius)

I shift my attention to the garden I ran through this morning. If one runs through this garden’s outer course on a wide range, he’ll cover a distance of about one lap around an elementary school’s playground. (TLN: Don’t know how big that is)

【”That’s easy”】(Reus)
【”So how long do we have to do it for?”】(Emilia)
【”Until you pass out.”】(Sirius)
【”【”Huh?”】”】(Reus & Emilia)
【”What’s with the shocked faces? Run until you pass out. You can’t cross your limits if you don’t know your limits. Fear not for there is someone who’ll take care of you even if you collapse.”】(Sirius)

The someone who’ll look after them is Noel, I made here hold on standby at the end of the garden, preparing drinks and towels.

First of all is stamina. Stamina is absolutely essential in order to take action and there is no reason not to practice it. I come back to my senses and hit my hands together in front of the two whose focus stays unshaken. (TLN: I think It’s like something Japanese teachers do, to attract the attention of students who get flustered if they aren’t focused, when people do that in shinto shrines, it’s to attract the attention of the “gods” so… I guess it’s the same, please correct me if I’m wrong)

【”On the way, you also have to dash all out several times. And don’t slack off because I’ll be following you.”】(Sirius)
【”Cut the crap! How can you suddenly ask us to do it until we pass out?”】(Reus)
【”Reus, we’re going.”】(Emilia)

The younger brother can’t hide his astonishment of his elder sister’s resolution. He faces Emilia who has a serious expression.

【”I decided to follow Sirius-sama. I’ll run even if you don’t go, Reus.”】(Emilia)
【”Ugh…… alright, I’ll go too. However, I still don’t approve of “that guy”!”】(Reus)
【”It’s “Sirius-sama”, right? Name him properly!”】(Emilia)
【”Damn it, I meant “Sirius-sama”!”】(Reus)

Turning his anger into power, Reus starts running all out in the garden, and Emilia runs after him while smiling wryly at that mischievousness. Their pace is reckless, but I like it so I let them do so. After all, they’ll pass out and be taken care of all the same.

【”Hey hey, you have to catch up. Put more power in your feet.”】(Sirius)
【”Reus, run, it’s no use to raise your voice.”】(Emilia)

【”Regulate the rhythm of your breathing with your feet. Even if it’s difficult now, it’ll make it easier for the future if you remember it”】(Sirius)
【”I, I can do it-!”】(Reus)

【”Do an all out dash here.”】(Sirius)
【”Hah…… Yes!”】(Emilia)
【”Hah…… hah…… You-you got to be joking”】(Reus)

【”Your pace is falling. Are you reaching your limits?”】(Sirius)
【”Hah…… hah…… I can…… still go!”】(Reus)
【”hah…… hah……”】(Emilia)

【”How many is it now, I wonder?”】(Sirius)
【”ha…… ha…… hagh-“】(Reus)
【”………… Uh……”】(Emilia)

And so, two corpses appeared in the garden.
The two had collapsed with a feeble breath, and Noel, who was next to the pair, nursed them while fanning them.

【”Uh-huh, I understand, I went through the same. You’re not the ones with a problem, Sirius-sama is just too abnormal.”】(Noel)

And while Noel talked heartily about her three days of experience in training, I kept running. The two are probably unable to answer, so I planned to keep going until their breaths calms down and they become capable of talking.

After ten minutes, Noel waved her hand and called out to me.

【”Sirius-samaaa~, Emi-chan & co are about to recover.”】(Noel)
【”Got it. I’ll go do one more lap.”】(Sirius)

Having done a lap with all my power at the end, I stood in front of Emilia who heavily raised her upper-body and Reus who was fallen and not moving.

【”How about it you guys? Did you understand your limits? Ah, you don’t have to force yourselves to talk.”】(Sirius)

Emilia breathes heavily with a deep-red face, she doesn’t worry about her hair sticking with sweat and looks absentmindedly towards here. On the other hand, Reus is collapsed with a pale face and doesn’t move an inch. One would wonder if he’s dead, but it’s safe because his belly is properly moving up and down.

【”Take a proper rest while it’s still time. You’ll run again until lunch once you recover.”】(Sirius)

The pair trembled with shivers to the words. Even if I want to object, I’m afraid that that’s their limit.

【”Hmmm, Sirius-sama. Isn’t this pushing it a little too far? I think it is……”】(Noel)
【”Really? They’re having a steady rest so it’s alright, people are unexpectedly strong as long as they have the will.”】(Sirius)
【”It doesn’t sound alright at all!”】(Noel)

So to say, in my previous life, I couldn’t relax my guard even during breaks. It’s because my teacher used to aim at me with rubber-coated metal bullets when I relaxed. Therefore, while I do rest my body, it only pushes me to remember the forced physical labor and to sharpen up at least a minimum.
Never mind that, at any rate, for the time being, I’ll just keep putting load on their bodies and squeeze them to the limit. I’ve now understood the limits of the two thanks to the endurance run, after this, they just have to redo the process repeatedly and earnestly. The problem is adjusting the difficulty so that the pair’s will can endure it and that their bodies don’t break. They won’t last long if I just act strict, after all, the foundation of education is the carrot and stick.
Carrot, huh? What would be good for the two? Eating a delicious meal, of course.

【”What shall I make for lunch? What do you want to eat?”】(Sirius)
【”I’ll go with the cutlet sandwich we ate the other day!”】(Noel)
【”…Me too!”】(Emilia)
【”M-me too…”】(Reus)

You guys… especially the pair who died right there. You couldn’t even reply just now yet you respond to the food? To think that just a meal is enough. Are the beastkins that obsessed with eating?

After that, the break ends and I make the pair run again. This time, the goal is to keep running until noon rather than until falling. I point out their pacing, but although they do take a walking pace, their feet don’t stop. It’s a training that’s instilled in the body and improves the physical strength while moving. One would think that such a training is bound to become unpleasant, but the two were honestly making light of it given that they kept going patiently. Especially Reus, I thought that he’d rise up some trouble since he opposes me, but having seen his sister continuing silently, he stayed obedient. And, one thing leading to another, the two lost their balance.

And thus, the pair got through, and I rewarded the two who fell satisfiedly.

【【”Thanks for the meal!”】】(Emilia & Reus)

One would normally lose his appetite from running that much, yet the two took three second servings of cutlet sandwich. Each one is considerably voluminous with thick oil, but they wolf them down regardless. What matters is that they seem to have some quite healthy steel stomachs. I think they’d be quite capable of eating steadily in any situation.
Leaving the cleaning after the lunch to the others, I hold out some drinks before the two are immersed in their after-meal swelling.

【”Hmmm… what’s with the amazingly colorful things floating though?”】(Emilia)

There is spots of green, white and reddish objects floating on the mysterious beverage. It’s understandable for her to question it.

【”That’s nutritional supplement. Though it tastes awful, with this meal you’ll obtain plenty of the nutrients that you’re lacking.”】(Sirius)
【”Nu-try-ents? What are you saying?”】(Emilia)
【”I don’t know why it’s good but it’s good so drink it.”】(Sirius)

By the way, I squeezed in various vegetables and fruits, cutting and mixing the parts that were nutritious enough. I also mixed in some honey, which made its taste barely drinkable… maybe. The faces of the who drank up were quite difficult. But it’s safe, I’m drinking it too so it’s all good.

【”Do you want to eat pudding to remove the bad taste?”】(Sirius)
【”【”【”I do!”】”】”】(Reus & Emilia & Noel)

Although one cat eared beastkin intermixed, well, I won’t mind it. Having eaten the dessert, I give the following directions to the two who became satisfied looking.

【”Next up is a nap.”】(Sirius)
【”【”A nap?”】”】(Emilia & Reus)

The siblings look at each other’s faces. I guess it’s natural to be doubtful when someone who made you run to death just some time before suddenly says such a tepid thing.

【”I say “a nap” but it’s just a catnap. Afterwards, you’ll be taught by Elena.”】(TLN: He says 昼寝 and 仮眠, the first one is longer than the second so “nap” and “catnap” it is, if you have a better suggestion, please share it in the comments)

Though it’s also important to forge physical strength, I can’t afford to neglect culture and knowledge. No matter how strong one is, it’s useless if he can’t calculate and converse. Before Elena was saying that she wanted to do a servant education, that made me think about combining that with the education course. Allowing the catnap is for recovery as well as being a prevention from dozing off

【”You should lie down on the sofa over there for an hour.”】(Sirius)

It is said that sleeping immediately after a meal will make one grow fat, but that’s just the right thing for the skinny pair. One must first put on some fat to then turn it into muscles.

【”Lie down, you say? That’s pretty sudden.”】(Reus)
【”Just listen up and lie down. He’s saying that it’s alright to take a rest so you should do so.”】(Emilia)
【”That’s right, take a rest while you can. I’ll sit in the middle of the sofa, so I want you two to sleep in a way so that your heads come beside me.”】(Sirius)

Having tilted their heads at my instruction, the two do as I said. Sitting in the middle, there are the heads of the siblings lying on both of my sides, but they don’t try to sleep and only look up here .

【”What is it, Reus? Can’t sleep?”】(Sirius)
【”As if I could sleep in these conditions”】(Reus)
【”I see, then, I’ll do a charm for you that will make you sleep. Close your eyes. “】(Sirius)

I put my hand on Reus’ chest and I tap on it with my finger in a regular rhythm. The closer it is to the rhythm of his heartbeats, the better.

【”W-what? What are you tapping my chest for?”】(Reus)
【”It’s alright so just concentrate on my finger.”】(Sirius)

I continued with my finger’s rhythm like that, and five minutes passed..


So easy. On top of the total exhaustion from the harsh running, there is also the after-meal feeling of a full stomach so it’s only natural.
They quietly fell asleep next to me, or so I thought, but the elder sister was happily looking up my way. And here I thought she’d sleep without having to be told to since she’s a good and obedient child.

【”Even if it displeases you, hurry up and sleep. You won’t lose your fatigue otherwise.”】(Sirius)
【”Yes. Say…… could you pat me?”】(Emilia)
【”…… It can’t be helped.”】(Sirius)

When I pat her head in accordance with her request, she closes her eyes and laughs in a satisfied mood. Surprisingly, after a few seconds, she settles down and starts letting out a sleeper’s breathing. My hand sure is amazing-… yeah, as if.

【”Ooh… it’s like a magic hand. This skill, I want to learn it too.”】(Noel)
【”Their sleeping conditions were very satisfactory, so it was just a matter of having to make them relax a little. Well, the real thing is from here on.”】(Sirius)

I put my hands on the two’s head and I pour some mana inside in a way so that it doesn’t disturb their sleep. In order to make it enter at ease, the trick is to make it diffuse in the whole body by osmosis (TLN: It means harmonizing it, if you will), by giving a weak wound curing regeneration activity to the whole body, the recuperative power of sleep greatly raises.
Having continued for about 30 minutes, I part my hand, and separating from the sofa, I promptly sit at the table where some Japanese green tea is prepared. While drinking, my eyes landed on Elena who was waiting with a smile.

【”Thanks for your hard work. After the two get up, it’s my turn.”】(Elena)
【”Please do what you have to. And since I was strict until just a little while ago, go easy on them, alright?”】(Sirius)
【”Please leave it to me. I will make them into splendid servants who won’t be embarrassed anywhere they go.”】(Elena)
【”Hold on, they didn’t say that they’d become servants. You don’t have to bother going that far.”】(Sirius)
【”The servant education is a splendid education. Besides, it seems like it’s just a matter of time, doesn’t it?”】(Elena)

Elena turned her gaze toward the sleeping pair, and nodded with an “mhm” together with Noel who was also looking.

【”Especially so for Emi-chan, it’ll certainly happen sooner or later. My former self being the same, I can’t see her taking any other path than that one.”】(Noel)
【”Though I understand where you’re coming from, I think the girl is just idolizing me and that her love hasn’t sprouted yet. After this, if she keeps on training, I think that she won’t have the time to fall in love.”】(Sirius)

When I’ll add combat training, magic training and field training to the physical fitness….. It’ll be jostling. The girl’s simple love will easily cool down then, won’t it?

【”That’s too naive, a girl’s love is infinite! No matter the conditions, love will prevail.”】(Noel)
【”You read too many fictions. Anyway, Emilia is steady, but the problem resides with Reus.”】(Sirius)
【”That’s right. I have inquired about his troubles, and that child is unstable.”】(Elena)
【”Eeh? Unstable, you say? Reus-kun seems pretty energetic though?”】(Noel)

Elena and I share the same thought it seems, she explains to Noel while including her own opinion.

【”Is it really alright? The siblings try to protect each other from being one another’s only relative. Though that’s certainly wonderful, but that’s only if you don’t change your point of view.”】(Elena)
【”Isn’t it only natural? It’s proof that they’re important for each other, right?”】(Noel)
【”But, what if something regrettable happens to one of them? For instance, let’s take Reus, his whole point of living is undoubtedly his elder sister. If Emilia say, dies, Reus will die as well. While those two do support each other, It’s a very unstable alliance which will collapse completely if one side slips off.”】(Elena)
【”Since she vented up her pent-up anger on me, Emilia will try to find a new aim, but Reus only has his sister as of now.”】(Sirius)

Reus’ repulsion towards me is clearly from jealousy. For his dear and beloved elder sister to look at me, it must be unbearably mortifying.

【”That child is still too young. He acts tough but his wounds from losing his parents are deep and he’s depending on his older sister without knowing it. We have to find him some other goal.”】(Elena)
【”That is so, well, fortunately, it’s safe for now. He’s training diligently for the sake of protecting his sister, so he can do nothing but go with the status quo.”】(Sirius)

There are still two years left before we get driven out of here. Though I’ll go to school, I don’t know how those two will grow, so, until then, I want to somehow do something.
As Elena and I worriedly looked at each other’s face, Noel suppressed her voice and laughed.

【”You two are a little like a mother and a father.”】(Noel)
【”Hey hey, it’s impossible in terms of age. Make me a big brother at least.”】(Sirius)
【”In others words, am I Sirius-sama’s mother? That’s wonderful. “】(Elena)

Leaving the suddenly overcome with emotion Elena alone, we spent our time in a relaxed mood until the time of the two’s awakening.

The two who laid down for exactly an hour were woken up.
Though they seemed a little drowsy, their physical strength was recovered which strongly puzzled them. I make them run lightly to keep them awake, and the servant education of Elena begins at last.

【”Then, shall we study about servants? It’s difficult so follow attentively.”】(Elena)

They sat face-to-face on the desk in the living room, and I was looking at the scene sitting on a sofa. By the way, Noel and Dee aren’t by the desk being attending to errands and cleaning.

Since Elena is an expert maid, she fits very well the role of teaching people. Reus is obedient to her as well so there is no particular problem in proceeding.

【”Reus, today I’m your teacher. Say “yes” not “mhm”.”】(Elena)
【”Uh… Y-yes!”】(Reus)

The speech teaching begins immediately. While the change of manner of the usually gentle and tender Elena is shocking, it seems to accordingly enhance obedience.

【”Being the master’s underling, the servant is, naturally, a person who supports him from the shadows. A devoted heart is important for that. If you happen to meet a master that you want to serve, I believe you’ll surely understand. “】(Elena)
【”… Yes!”】(Emilia)

The two glance this way with each a different reaction. Puting Emilia aside, Reus’s face seems blatantly unpleased. Elena immediately turned sharp eyes towards Reus for his apparent mistake.

【”Reus, instead of talking that like that, answer with “I understand”.”】(Elena)
【”But, I didn’t tell you that I’d become a servant-…… I mean, I did not say that I would do that. What does this-…… what is the meaning of this?”】(Reus) (TLN: Had to improvise here, anyway, he corrected himself by talking more politely, he does that a lot)
【”That’s right, you certainly don’t need to become a servant as you say and that lowers the meaning of learning about it. However, mastership is not a story limited to Sirius-sama, learning this won’t hurt. For instance, the speech.”】(Elena)

Elena firmly reciprocates the actually plausible speech of Reus, but he seems not to understand well and tilts his neck in wonder.

【”Speech is important. The high ranked people will respect an other person if she gives a good impression by talking politely, and above all, it makes you appear smart and elegant. Reus, do you remember what kind of impression the speaking of the adults who made a fool of you gave off?”】(Elena)
【”…… I didn’t understand it well, but It was something very vulgar…”】(Reus)
【”That’s what happens when one doesn’t know polite speech, so cultivate yourself. Or do you want to become like that?”】(Elena)

Not wanting to turn out that way, Reus frantically shakes his head with an unpleased face.

【”Therefore, let’s learn. Follow my and your elder sister’s example and proceed in remembering slowly.”】(Elena)
【”Yes! I understand.”】(Reus)
【”That’s it, good child”】(Elena)

She praised Reus and promptly patted his head. Though it’s a simple carrot and stick, I believe it’s very effective for children like Reus. In fact, he’s smiling from ear-to-ear, well done, Elena.

【”Your speech will correct itself with time, so for now I shall show you a few attendant movements.”】(Elena)

Standing up without a sound, she shows off the attendant movements before the two’s eyes. Though I see it every day, looking at it carefully again I think it’s really splendid.
Even her walking is graceful and her footsteps are barely audible, her bow’s angle goes like the tray of steadily moving water, this technique certainly could be the ideal attendant movement. The two were looking admiringly at the tender mother like work-face that she usually shows. She did various other movements, and after she finished, the pair spontaneously applauded. They came to want to applaud without even being told to, or rather, it’s just that magnificent, isn’t it? (TLN: Author went all poetic here, I don’t even know if any of this makes sense, long story short, she’s elegant)

【”Thank you. It’s simple but it’s because these are just basic motions, for now, will you give it a try?”】(Elena)
【”【”Yes!”】”】(Reus & Emilia)

Thus, the two mimic the attendant movements, but it naturally doesn’t go well, as expected. The footsteps were noisy, the bowing angles were shallow, there were endless things to point out, but Elena made them do it again several times without pointing out anything except for the big mistakes. Her policy is to correct things little by little rather than fixing everything at once.
I blended in the teaching of walking around as well. Though they were surprised at my walking that didn’t resound any footsteps, that’s an assassin’s skill, not an attendant’s. But the rest could be helpful so I learned the know-how, just in case.

【”That’s enough for today. The daily accumulation of experience is important, so you should think back upon it properly before sleep.”】(Elena)
【”【”Thank you very much”】”】(Reus & Emilia)

The attendant education took two hours, that’s pretty short. I get them to stop it because the rest can be done another time, and I prepare the following training.
However, before that.

【”Good job, Elena. Let’s eat snacks or something while taking a break.”】(Sirius)

During the spare time, I made rusk and set it up on a table with some brewed tea. The pair had been waiting with sparkling eyes for Elena to sit in order to sit themselves. They don’t try to eat without permission thanks to their education. Elena sits down while thanking me, and our little tea party starts. I notice that a cat-eared beastkin has mixed in, but I don’t mind, yes, I don’t mind at all.

【”It’s so crispy and tasty. Big sis Noel, what is this?”】(Emilia)
【”I didn’t make it so I don’t know. Sirius-sama, this is bread, right?”】(Noel)
【”Yes, it’s a sweet made from bread called “Rusk”.”】(Sirius) (TLN: In Japan, the Rusk is different, it’s apparently a sweet and a delicacy there, they even decorate it with all sort of stuff like chocolate, well, if you want to know more, google is your friend)

It’s a sweet made by cutting bread into a long and narrow sized mouthful and deep-frying it after coating it with sugar. When I explained how to make it, they were impressed by the extent of the change made to common ingredients with a little cooking.

【”Fact is that common ingredients like these change in various ways depending on the way you use them. You shouldn’t stop considering how to use them just because they’re common ingredients. In short, it’s important to keep walking ahead.”】(Sirius)
【”But that’s just moving your legs, right? There isn’t a reason to- There is no reason to stop walking.”】
【”That’s not what it means. You’ll come to understand that when you’re older, just think about it for now. You’ll eventually get it.”】(Sirius)
【”I don’t really understand….”】(Reus)

His face is bitter to me as usual, but didn’t it become a little bit better? Like that, the female team was looking at our exchange while laughing.

【”You’ll have to teach me how to brew tea at some point.”】(Emilia)
【”Naturally, I’ll teach you Sirius-sama’s way of brewing.”】(Noel)
【”It’s just a little plus to the original way of brewing, it’s not my personal distinct way of doing it.”】(Sirius)
【”That’s not true. Though I used to be convinced that I had mastered it, it reminded me that I still have way to go before reaching the top.”】(Elena)
【”Is this tea Sirius-sama’s?”】(Emilia)
【”That’s right. Sirius-sama’s technique is beyond mine. How is that even possible while you weren’t taught any particular form of etiquette?”】(Noel)
【”I watched and learned.”】(Sirius)
【”【”【”Huuuh?”】”】”】(Reus & Emilia & Noel)

What’s with those faces? Do they not believe me?

【”Then, shall I try and display it like Elena did earlier? Elena, please act as the master.”】(Sirius)
【”It’s my honor.”】(Elena)

And so, Elena is entertained as a master.
With an elegant bow, the tablewares’ handling is done without a noise, it’s a natural intervention that doesn’t interfere with the master’s actions. These are all things I learned by observing Elena’s movements. Observing your opponent is an important and essential point in fights. If you practice that well, It’s not difficult to perform attendant movements as they are. However, since it’s just an imitation, it eventually gets rusty over time. It would be impudent to compare that to Elena who permeated it through her body and can do it spontaneously.
Finally, I brew the tea and bow down, putting an end to the entertainment.

【”Perfect. Both my body and soul were satisfied.”】(Elena)
【”Ugh, what’s with this sense of defeat? However, Sirius-sama is my master, not a rival. Therefore, it’s all good Emi-chan, alright?”】(Noel)
【”… The angle is…… And so the foot goes like…… doesn’t it?”】(Emilia to herself)

With eyes shut, Emilia mutters something, could it be that she’s doing image training?

【”Huh? Emi… chan?”】(Noel)
【”She seems to be serious somehow. She might overtake you if you’re careless, Noel.”】(Sirius)
【”In that case, it’s time for special training. This big sister can’t be defeated by someone she stands above of!”】(Noel)

Though I neither know nor care where she went to, Noel rushed out of the the living room, full of motivation. It’s strange, I feel like it became strangely noisy here and we didn’t really get to rest much. Well, with the main culprit of the commotion not being here anymore, it should quiet down.


I decided not to look at the lonesomely muttering Reus.

I put an end to the break and start the following teaching.

Reading and writing of letters, simple calculations, it’s time to hammer the basic knowledge necessary for living into the two’s heads. This is going to be taught by me in cooperation with Elena.

【”Now then, letters and arithmetic are very important. Why do you think that is?”】(Sirius)
【”Well…… Do you know, sister?”】(Reus)
【”Reus, how did we, who didn’t not know those, end up?”】(Emilia)
【”…… We were cheated?”】(Reus)
【”Correct. In short, your chances of being cheated will decrease if you know those two things.”】(Sirius)

Theft by false pretenses, document deficiency and so forth, there are traps everywhere in society.
For example, a person who can’t use arithmetic or characters, having signed a contract to get a 10 silver coins job, received only 6 silver coins upon finishing taking care of it. Though she of course complains, It’s written on the signed contract that 30% would be taken as a referral fee and she can do nothing but reluctantly give it up, In addition, she doesn’t understand the meaning of 30% so she can’t notice one silver coin being embezzled.
Those are escapable if one knows basic knowledge. In order to see through injustice, one needs to have the knowledge necessary for the sake of avoiding being cheated.

【”However, it won’t be a problem when-… I think that, if I get strong, it won’t be a problem.”】(Reus)
【”Do you intend to just strike from the front like a monster? That just makes one look like a prey for thieves. Listen, no matter how strong one is, he still might be made to agree to wearing a subjugation collar and such without noticing. If you learn earnestly, you’ll save yourself from the cheating adults and you’ll defend those who you want to protect. That’s right, knowledge is power as well.”】(Sirius)

It’s a different world but children still hate studying, huh?
However, this world has less margin than my previous life’s, there, you didn’t have a choice but to receive the essential teachings and to instill them diligently in you. But it’s also natural since the only thing he tasted is the bottom of slavery.

【”Elena-san! Please teach me Sirius-sama’s words from just now in letters”】(Emilia)
【”It seems like you too were impressed”】(Elena)
【”Yes, I thought his previous words were amazing. I want to save them, so I want to learn the characters fast.”】(Emilia)
【”All right. I fully wrote and accumulated his past wise sayings so, afterwards, I’ll show you my records.”】(Elena)
【”Please do!”】(Emilia)

Hold on a second, she wants to learn the characters in order to make a compilation of my quotes, what’s with that? Rather, when did Elena even do such a thing? I don’t mind a high will to learn, but I seriously want them to stop it because it’s embarrassing.
I made a simplified chart of characters, so as I display it, I compare the names of various things with the chart while teaching them. Since letters are things used everyday, with perseverance and time, one is bound to remember them. (TLN:Remember that he’s teaching them with something similar to Japanese letters since it’s the author’s language)

The arithmetic comes to an end normally. Teaching them the digits up to 100, I made them understand those digits and made them repeat one digit additions and subtractions.
I even tested them by making them experience a simulated shopping after passing them one copper coin of allowance. I let them buy the remaining cutlet sandwiches from lunch, I told them they may eat them if they could buy them by calculating properly. Being at the peak of their growth and having become hungry, they’re really desperate to eat.

【”Let’s say one unit of these cutlet sandwiches costs three iron coins. Then, how much change would you get if you buy two units of these?”】(Sirius)
【”Well…… for one copper coin it’s……”】(Emilia)

The money of this world is all in the state of coins whose prices are decided according to their materials. Converting it kind of roughly into Japanese yen, it becomes the following.

One stone coin is 1 yen. (0.008$) (0.007€)
One iron coin is 50 yen. (0.41$) (0.37€)
One copper coin is 500 yen. (4.13$) (3.72€)
One silver coin is 5,000 yen. (41.36$) (37.2€)
One gold coin is 100,000 yen. (827.2$) (744.11€)

In addition, there seems to be the higher-ranking white gold coin and dragon gold coin, but I give up on obtaining that for now because it’s impossible.
As a reference, with a bunch silver coins, a family of four can live through about one month, I guess? Since the prices held by bartering change depending on the location, I can’t say that’s how it unconditionally is but that’s roughly it.
While Emilia seriously calculated the amount of money, Reus passed the copper coin to me and said.

【”Just make it what you want. Because in my case, I might eat more.”】(Reus)

I received the copper coin, and I decided to include a weak iron claw to his change.

【”Huuh?! Why am I receiving the same thing as big sis Noel? It-it’s a little painful so stop it, please stop it!”】(Reus)
【”You got some nerves to give up on the calculation. This is what I’ll do from now on when you do foolish things.”】(Sirius)
【”I figured it out! Huh? What’s the matter Reus?”】(Emilia)
【”Don’t worry about it. So, how much is the change for one copper coin?”】(Sirius)
【”It’s four iron coins.”】(Emilia)
【”Correct, here, have these cutlet sandwiches.”】(Sirius)

When I separated my hand from Reus and handed two cutlet sandwiches, Emilia handed her younger brother one of them.

【”Big sister, my answer is wrong……”】(Reus)
【”I don’t need as much as two so it’s allright, okay?”】(Emilia)

Though Reus looked this way, together with Elena, I faced elsewhere, feigning ignorance. The two were smiling while biting into their cutlet sandwiches.

【”It’s delicious even though It cooled down. Next time, calculate properly and get one, alright?”】(Emilia)

The brother and sister’s relation is excellent.
Elena and I keep looking calmly at the warm scene.


【”All right, we’ll go run outside once you’re done eating that.”】(Sirius)
【”【”Eeeeh!?”】”】(Reus & Emilia)

My training is not over yet.

Afterwards, I continued running with the two until dinner.

Author’s note: The Japanese yen conversion of the money is approximate and the value changes according to the location.

I don’t know if there is a situation where it will change.

      wow… Sirius is seriously cheating them lol
      oh and where do i sign-up for getting a copy of ‘compilation of master Sirius quotes’ lol

      some minor errors:
      since rust to rusk part is already pointed out, i only have one to pointed out
      【”Understood. Hey, Reus, do as Sirius-sama said, alright?”】(Reus)
      i think this one is (Emilia) ?

      1. No, Reus is schizophrenic and ordering himself, obviously, c’mon. No seriously, thanks, I’ll go correct that but as I said, it’s not edited yet and I don’t really pay that much attention to these things since my editor does it :p

      2. TamaSaga

        The math seems right to me…Each cutlet sandwich costs 3 iron coins (150 yen). Buy two, that’s 300 yen. A copper coin is worth 500 yen. That means she’ll get 200 yen in change. Which is 200/50 = 4 iron coins.

      3. Yeah.. It somehow got translated as 1 copper = 100 iron in my mind..
        Does that mean I fail at arithmetic ?? NOooo!! I don’t wanna take more math class T_T

            1. this is “whenIfeellikeitly” >< Also, I'll go translate chapter 16 now, I had some problems with my right arm yesterday but now it hurts less so I can translate

              1. entity02

                Oh okay thanks I hope that right arm of yours gets better. hahahaha and thank you for answering my question good luck!!

      4. One iron coin is 50 yen.
        One copper coin is 500 yen.

        10 iron coins is 1 copper coin.
        2 sandwiches at “one unit of these cutlet sandwiches costs three iron coins” so 2 x 3 is 6 thus 【”It’s four iron coins.”】(Emilia)

        Sirius is seriously cheating them????

    1. We all did, im sure.
      Most of us didn’t believe we would ever read chapter 15.
      I as well never thought it would be TLed in my lifetime.

      But then, just as i was about to delete this from my Bookmarks, i received a notification!!
      Like a shining ray of hope, it showed that chapter 15 was up!!
      Not trusting my eyes, i hesitatingly tapped on the screen and i was brought here.
      “its true!!” i thought.
      “defiring, you have not forsaken us after all!!” i rejoiced, tears running down my face. And then. . .
      As i clicked on *continue reading*. . .


      *dead silence*

      *staring blankly*

      Then. . .

      “Noooooooo!!” cries of horror and denial.

      And this process went on for sometime.
      It is now Saturday, june 20th
      I endured such torture for an entire day.

    1. Wow, it’s because I was talking about the game right before, didn’t notice that, thanks, well, the editor will fix all that when he wakes up anyway so don’t worry :p

  2. thanks for the chapter!
    But why is Sirius Teaching them Japanese writing, wouldnt that take a really long time… Especially learning all the kanji?!
    And in the end the children will have to learn that worlds writing system too, i feel sorry for them (or did i misunderstand something?)

    1. Nooo, I meant that the mindset of the author pictures something similar to japanese writing as the writing of that world, like, a character = a word

    2. The author is a bit tooo nippon-centrism. Note that there’s really no need to convert money to yen since using a series of goods’ prices as reference is good enough, but he use yen anyway. He’s not unique in that, as I think about 40-50% WN authors that get translated is similar to him.

      1. Well, it was his first novel so that what you’d expect, but you shouldn’t pay attention to this, he doesn’t really mention it afterward

        1. Well, it’s because those authors don’t expect foreigners to read their books, they’re web novels, not light novels, that’s the kind of things that get fixed in the light novels (Fyi, there will be a light novel for world teacher in July 25th)

      2. Aye, there’s that. One must pay attention to audience after all. And to be clear, nippon-centrism is not a criticism, more like an acknowledgement of reality. If you read Post Apocalypse novels, more than likely you will encounter americano-centrism. And it doesnt/shouldnt affect your enjoyment of the novels. Case in point: I LIKE Gate. despite its strong Japan STRONK! theme.

  3. RKain

    >”I had more of a life than usual these days”

    As excuses go, that’s a pretty decent one.
    Happy to see translations resume!

    My thanks to you.

    1. Well, I didn’t expect every person I know to invite me consecutively, c’mon, I was just 2 days late, it was going to be 1 day but I kind of… didn’t save and my pc restarted and….. shame on me, I know

    1. Yeah, that’s why it was so annoying to translate, but it’s one of the earlier chapters which weren’t very good compared to what comes next

  4. Irritator

    Thank you!!!!
    but still you are amazing. you are saying that theres no “proper edit” and yet the quality is superb compared to other translators. You Sir, Have My Respect.

  5. if you want to make the phrase more polite, maybe you can revise it in a form of a request?

    *what is the meaning of this?
    **what might be the meaning of this?
    ***can you tell me the meaning of this?
    ****i hope you can tell me the meaning of this.

    1. Yeah but then I’d have to do that to everything that Elena says and it would be weird on top of being annoying to read and write, that’s why I didn’t make it too polite

  6. not proper edit, tried to read, umu this good enough
    thank for the chapter, nyahahaha one of very much waiting list to read after OSO and Fafnir

    1. Well, the only edit I did was adding the names of the characters actually, I usually edit by reading the text out loud, you notice mistakes easier when reading out loud, and I record myself to see if it sounds right, but I’m too tired to do that *sigh*

  7. Rat

    “Emilia and I share the same thought it seems, she explains to Noel while including her own opinion.”

    Emilia should be Elena

      1. Iorclois

        Not much of a spoiler since this is a typical fic where good was rewarded and evil get their punishment. This not game of thrones.

    1. Why do you guys think I know when a chapter will come out? I just release them when I’m done translating them >< But you can just check on aho-updates you know? Anyway, I'll start translating chapter 16 now, I'll try to do it fast if I have the time (it's 3am here)

    2. moneng85

      well lets be patient my friend (´・ω・`) ,
      if not you could use chloroform, knock yourself out, wake up one month later, read chapter, chloroform again, repeat for infinite chapters

  8. Assassin

    Atlast chapter 15 !!! wew i wanna stab Defiring sensei so much to the point make me cry of red tears

  9. Anon7

    Ah, since chapters usually are updated weekly so the chapters are indeed quite packed. Also since this are the earlier chapters, lots of explainin’ basic but detailed stuff are happening.

    thanks once again for working on this!

  10. Danke schön. 🙂
    Can’t wait for the next chapter. I hope we see some more serious action in the near future (like one shoting a wyvern xD).
    Please keep up the very appreciated hard work! 🙂

  11. i think “white gold coins” are platinum coins, and “dragon gold coins” are mithril coins. just saying, though. 😀 thanks for the translations!

    1. Wait, they are white gold coins and dragon gold coins, I didn’t make a mistake man, you made me doubt myself >< And no, it can't be mithril since only the elves have mithril and they don't deal with humans

  12. RyuGen

    Damn knowing what is going to happen in a few chapters later is gonna [Defiring edit: I think this spoils some stuff so I edited the part, sorry :p]. Thanks for the sugoi update Defiring.

  13. Just for some mistakes, Lose not Lost fatigue, Eyes landed on Elena not Emilia. I haven’t finished yet so meh but also use Power Nap imo over Catnap.

    1. Let’s see… A weird space between bow and angle, an I somewhere below that isn’t capitalized and it’s BUY A SANDWICH NOT BUT A SANDWICH
      Ahem I’ll stab you Defiring-kun until you cry blue tears.

      1. Well my editor apparently gave up or something so that’s how it is, and I didn’t reread it, alright, I’m sorry, I usually reread out loud to notice the mistakes but I thought it would be too troublesome 🙁

        1. Lol it is too troublesome.
          It’s probably just an error on my app for spacing.
          Lol it may sound better, but power nap is probably what he means.
          Np btw.

  14. kenjiro2684669

  15. Yo defiring,

    First thing first,

    Thanks for the chapter <3

    I really enjoyed this chapter because I like character development 😀

    I have a question for you,

    previously, I saw a comment that you will probably be posting a chapter per 2 days – when is that going to start? I'm assuming around late August but I just want to know ahead of time, so I can set up a text and camp this website like people do so in COD.

    1. That’s going to start when my pc get fixed, I wanted to start before but now it refuses to work properly, so I’m getting it to be repaired, I’ll get it back sunday but I’ll try to translate on another pc for the time being

      1. Yin

        A chapter per 2 days? Whoa, that’s amazing, considering how long each chapter is. I’m looking forward to it!

    1. I don’t know, like, 10? Maybe? I know after the chapter I’m translating, there is one other arc (THAT one) and then it’s the school arc

    1. Yeah, sorry about that, but I told you guys, wait ’till I get back my pc, ’cause right now, I have an old pc bought in 2001 and it doesn’t deal well with wordpress websites for some reason, but don’t worry, I’m translating

      1. Francom

        I think they meant about the promise the elf made about not being able to leave her tribe again for (I think) 10 years.

  16. Astreon

    Thx for the chapter. Though it’s unedited, it’s still pretty good quality TL.

    “Those are avoidable if one knows basic knowledge, these can be avoided” ==> if it’s avoidable, it can indeed be avoided, no need to repeat it 🙂

    Power nap would be the logical thing considering it’s supposed to be a way to mentally recover from physical strain, but since it’s one hour i believe your catnap fits better. Blame the author for making a strategically weird sleeping choice here ^^

  17. soriassire

    I think you mixed up Emilia with Reus during the part where they’re running around the garden to see where their limits are:

    “【”Regulate the rhythm of your breathing with your feet. Even if it’s difficult now, it’ll make it easier for the future if you remember it”】(Sirius)
    【”Yes!”】(Reus) <–
    【”I, I can do it-!”】(Emilia)

    【”Do an all out dash here.”】(Sirius)
    【”Hah…… Yes!”】(Reus) <–
    【”Hah…… hah…… You-you got to be joking”】(Emilia)

    【”Your pace is falling. Are you reaching your limits?”】(Sirius)
    【”Hah…… hah…… I can…… still go!”】(Reus) <–
    【”hah…… hah……”】(Emilia)

    Most of the responses with Reus behind them are more like something that Emilia would answer with, considering her personality.

    1. I’m not sure, I did write “You got to be joking” because i thought it’s Reus but it’s actually more polite than what I wrote, also, there is no significant difference between the two’s way of talking here so it’s confusing… I’ll check the japanese version after

    2. joseoh

      if you think about it, then Emilia is the one most likely to agree simply, hence the “yes.” The younger brother has the combatitive spirit so it makes sense for him to say I can do it. Further he is younger so it is expected that he couldn’t say more than hah hah which is likely meant to be heavy breathing not laughing, whereas she is two years older so is more likely to be able to add more hence the I can still go part. the original logic with reus being rebellious and Emilia being obedient applies to the middle part as well. Now do you still think they are switched?

  18. Tomatiz

    Hey deffring thanks for the hardwork, this is just a offer, if your willing. I wouldnt mind editing for you. I took japanese through highschool and a year in college. So im used to quite a bit of japanese. Just an offer. If you already resolved it before reading this message, thats cool. Thanks for the hardwork.

  19. Zeusred

    thank you very much for the chapter, I really want to help you but my japanese is bad & I can’t read kanji, but if there something I can help, I’ll help you ’cause I like this Novel, sorry can’t help much

  20. Just Another Fan

    Thanks for the chapter

    Do u have a release date or u release randomly when u finish the translation

    “Sry for my bad English”

    1. Well, I can’t afford to put a release date or the moment as I still don’t have a pc, once I’ll have on, I’ll consider putting dates and such

  21. Resdan

    Here get some sandwich so you could trow out after runing 🙂
    Thanks for the Chapter.

    Follow The Shadow

      1. Agonal

        I’m excited to hear that! Discovered this light novel back in May/June and quickly finished what has been translated. Was beginning to think i’d have to learn Japanese to continue the story.

        Looking forward to reading more. And thanks for all your efforts to provide us with these translations!!!

        1. Well, you know, I’m almost done with this chapter but the thing is that before 20h, I don’t translate, because I’m hungry as hell and I can focus… especially with how hot it is lately in Algeria (between 44C and 48C)

  22. Ardavix

    No Worries Defiring, I am just pleased that someone is translating it. Kudos and happy Ramadan from Canada!

    1. Oh c’mon, I’m almost done here, and I already received enough threats from Assassin, I’m currently missing my hands, my ears and my manhood 🙁

      1. Adahn

        Great, I was going to ask for faster releases, but from what you wrote my appeal is going to fall on deaf ears 😛

        1. To be honest, I was at like 50% 2 or 3 days after chapter 16, but stuff happened and I never really got to finish (My pc stopped working and other personal stuff too), then I just got a little lazy I guess and I only did an other 25% during the last 3 days, add the hunger on top and you get what happened, I wanted to finish yesterday, but I saw that it was 5AM and I had to translate some martial arts related parts, since I don’t know a thing about martial art (Just a bit of kung fu and karate), I had to do some research and I saw that I wasn’t getting anywhere so I decided that ending today would be better

      2. Adahn

        It’s ok, tbh I was just going for the pun. I know that rl can pile up, and in any case you should take some time to relax when you need to, otherwise you’ll just burn yourself out.

        1. Yeah, to be honest, when I don’t feel like working, I just don’t… but I’m almost done with the translation, so I’ll finish it and give it to guesto for the edit. If it all goes well, I’ll post it very soon

  23. m.mix

    For ‘nap’ vs. ‘catnap’, why not go with ‘siesta’ vs. ‘nap’? Using the Spanish term can make their confusion flow better

    1. Nah, thing is that I got some reader from France, Spain, Indonesia, what they do is that they take the English translation and translate it to their language, adding other languages could make it troublesome

  24. Unless worlds are actually connected and currency exchange is physically possible it is stupid to even mention converting. Effort you need to put into procuring things in worlds with different technology and culture levels, laws of physics and ecosystem is completely incomparable.

    1. Nathan Woods

      Yeah I don’t get why they always have to convert it and it’s always into yen as well but at least this author included Dollars and Euroes which was nice

  25. Ved

    This training wouldn’t work, because it basically injures the body with no hope of healing in between. It’s also better to do interval training. Most people fall off strict exercise regimens because they think they have to go all out right away, and it doesn’t work.

    1. LOTRfreak101

      Actually, you aren’t really wrong. except what he is doing is much worse than normal. rather than using magic to heal he is stimulating the growth of cells to reproduce and heal the body. since a body only has a limited number of times its cells can duplicate he is in effect severely aging what ever part he is “healing”.

  26. Edgardo Stimits

    Just going to those talks imply that you are serious, particularly while you go to the symposium early Saturday morning
    like right this moment. https://math-problem-solver.com/ .
    Algebra has been discovered in between the eight to the tenth grade depending on the curriculum
    in your state.

  27. danceswithweasalopes

    Yes, none of those complaining are going to look this far back again, but still…
    And, I’m probably not the last one to read this section for the first time.

    It _is_ possible to do relational currency conversions between real and fantasy currencies.

    However, relational implies that it has to be things that relate to each other.

    Thus, one can give a relational value in Yen or Euros or US Dollars for the cost of various foodstuffs.

    The same can be done for different textiles, and for finished clothing.

    Also for various tools. And arms and armour. Etc., etc., etc…


    As was pointed out, with differing technologies and resource availabilities, a blanket x=y isn’t possible. You can do it within each of those listed groups, possibly; you might actually have to make even finer distinctions in regard to sub-groups. Clearly, values will differ from area to area based upon local circumstances in regard to availability of differing items.

    One thing one can do, is say that in a given location, a given lifestyle will cost x, and after analyzing the relative costs of the individual components of that lifestyle in a given location in our reality with that one, you can say that the comparative cost of living for that lifestyle in those locations is such and such. That can provide an “average” comparative valuation of currency between those locals for those living circumstances.

    But that valuation will clearly fluctuate based upon what is required for different living circumstances in those locations.

    You need to be consider what percentage of regular income for a given job goes for what in regard to ongoing expenses; the relative cost of things within a society will differ given differences in resources and technology. I’ve experienced this myself in this reality in regard to the comparative cost of housing in different sections of the United States; housing is much more expensive in Chicago, Illinois, than in Salem, Oregon, and water is much more expensive in Tucson, Arizona than in Portland, Oregon.

    Thus, an income that will allow you to live comfortably in one location will put you in poverty circumstances in another location, even though it’s the exact same currency in the same country.

    Those are either huge coppers, small silvers or they have a copper-silver exchange ratio very skewed in favour of copper…
    (Usually for decimal currency systems, the basic silver is worth 100 coppers.)
