Author’s Note: It seems I did continuously made the same sentences. Corrected.

I am, Frey*Kokusu, from i was small till grown-up is always being bullied with my elder brothers.
Father, entering our family name into the aristocracy, after did distinguished military services on combat against the monsters as a Knight.
I am the youngest child with 4 siblings and also the eldest daughter at home. My older brothers always said want to become knight when they are still kids. When there are examination to enlist as Knight corps in the town, they took it after they grown-up.
Mother send off my older brothers with a smile, so when I am growing-up, I want to become a Knight too, I kept repeated it to myself.

I was a frail from my childhood, so I am unable to express my opinion nor intention to my surrounding, I can always nodded to my mother.
After my brother who is 4 years older than me entered the Knight corps, my body has growing-up steadily.
There is no older brothers who bullied her, but even though her body growing, but she is still timid.

Everyday, although I’m not suitable as a Knight, but I kept training everyday.
During the continously indecisive state, I invited to take enlistment examination when I was grown-up, I passed it even though I believed it was a mistake.
After that, training, I did training everyday. So I can become more stronger.
I was undefeatable in sword sparring against everyone. Before long, I was being called the most promising young Knight and it made me high.

[Anyone come at me if you dare!!]

The next day, I was beaten-up with my senior Knights. None of my technique working against them.
Afterwards, whenever I met any of my senior knights, I was being made fun, they were laughing at me who is on the lower ranks.
My mind went broken. I was originally a timid person. After being big-mouthed, I lost all of my confidence.
As the result, everything that I did is useless.
I was being defeated by my opponent who should I can win over due my spirit is broken.
I was unable to move on when there is a pitfall due my worry.
In the end, I would be crying during the combat practice. And, my blunder reached the blunder limit.
At last, I got nickname [Crybaby] Frey.

[As I expected, I am not suitable become a Knight]

I didn’t joined the training and shut myself inside the room in the lodging house on the next day after I cried during practice session.
At first no one noticed me, but after three days everyone who shared room with me become worried.
After two weeks passed, I’m still not coming out from the room, the instructor came to the room and shouted at me.

Several months passed, it’s another season for apprentice knight graduation.
No one worried about me anymore because the apprentice knight graduation. There is also no free time during the graduation either.
Half of the apprentice knights were assigned to the knight corps on this town. And the rest of remains is already decided before being enlisted.
I am, was planned on the former, but after my instructor abandoned me, most likely I’ll be driven out from this room as the same time as the graduation.
Most likely I can still lived on this lodging house until today because my father plead. Because the title “Knight” can be obtained as long as you’re graduated, he asked the teachers for it.

And on the day of graduation day, I was given a minimum luggage by my older brothers, who I don’t know why father gathered them today, and then I was taken on the carriage.
I was staying obediently, even after three days passed I am still don’t know nor heard the destination of this carriage.
The carriage stopped in the front of a big mansion and went gone after dropping me and my luggage.
When I was began worried, the maid shows-up from inside the mansion and pulled my hand.

[This way, Frey-sama]

I had been guided to the mansion and put in the bath at once. I am certainly smell bad because didn’t taken any bath for three days.
When I was going-up from bath, a luxury underwear and armor was given to me. Did they will made me fighting after this?
After I ended change my clothes, brought by the maid and taken in the front of a certain room.
When the maid knocked with knock-knock, there is a man’s voice from the inside the room.

[Welcome, to Capri Mansion. Are you Frey?]

Inside the room, there is an uncle which the age is 50 years old. Is he and my father is the same generation? I was being welcomed with a radiant smile.

[A,ano]

[I have heard about you from your father. You will guard my daughter, rather I want someone who can talk with her]

A talking partner. If it’s like that I can do it. However, it’s unnecessary to provide me an armor for to be talking partner.

[My daughter is always yearning for a Knight. Because I can’t allow a male knight to be near her, so I decided for a female knight]
I see, so a knight decoration. This might suit me well.

[But my daughter is a little bit strange, so I hope you don’t mind it?]
[I, I understand. I’ll accept the task of guarding your daughter]

It’s already become a habit to make attitude as Knight when I was still on apprenticeship. The carprice lord nodded, and brought me to her daughter which I will guard.
The daughter, is drinking the tea in the garden on mansion. When she noticed the Caprice Lord called her, she smiling brightly when saw me.
Like meeting a Goddess. I’m fully obedient. The situation gives an encouragement feeling on this fleeting atmosphere.

[Good afternoon, are you my Knight?]

[Ye,yes. I am Frey*Kokusu. I have been tasked to guard Lady Flore from now]

I gave greeting while being tensed.

[Please take care of me. Frey]

[Yes]

My life starting like an event of fairy tale after being appointed as Knight of Lady Flore.
On the morning, after finishing breakfast, I went to lady Flore’s room, Lady Flore is still sleeping on her enclosed canopy bed.
This fantastical situation made me hesitate to wake her.
She is always wake-up when I’m prepared myself to call her name.

[Good morning, Frey]
[Good morning. Lady Flore]

The person who is charge to take care of her begin to help change her clothes immediately on the room. There is no stain on the lady Flore’s skin, it’s as smooth as silk.
After lady Flore finished changed her clothes, we’re moving to dining room.
I was standing on her side until lady Flore finished eating. I don’t get tired at all just by watching over her.
Usually, I got a regrettable feeling after her meal ended.

When finish her breakfast, lady Flore usually spend the day with enjoying the tea in the garden. Sometimes, she give greeting for the guest visiting the mansion.

[Nee, Frey. You are strong, right? I, I want to see you fighting]

To realize lady Flore wish, several swordman were called to the mansion. Lord Caprice is very gentle toward lady Flore. (TN: Doting father~)
I am, who is secretly ran away to this place, keep showing calm face when facing the swordman.
My hand who holding the sword is trembling. But, it’s only matter of time before everyone in surrounding know the truth.
My throat were dried-up. I remembered the unpleasant feeling stuck on the back of my throat when I forced swallowed my saliva.

[Start!!]

It’s starting at last, why Lord caprice made this kind of treatment despite saying I’m just a decoration knight?
The swordman wield his sword slowly. He might be holding back. Because it’s not gonna be a show if the duel ended soon at once.
I avoided the sword attack without any difficulty and I wield my sword quietly. The swordman noticed my sword, but he is already too late to avoid it.
There is no necessary to make slow movement to avoid it. When I was thinking it, I change the sword moving trajectory a bit.
The swordman body posture got destroyed. My sword is already on the my opponent throat.

[Gi, give up!!]

I won the duel just like that. From the surrounding, I heard the praised voices.
Eh? Is he defeated on purpose?
I am certainly a Knight of lady Flore even though just a decoration. It might be already decided that I’ll win the duel from beginning.
When I was looking on the Lord Caprice, his face were surprised and looking at me. There is no way for a senior noble acting that improper.

The next sword man is also not showing an impressive movement either, so I ended the duel by send him fly with my swordplay.
The spectators gives thunderous applause. Is this really my ability?

[Awesome, Frey. There is one person left. Good luck~]

Lady Flore cheering on me. I will shows her my full strength. I requested the next opponent at once.
The third opponent is stronger than the previous two people.
My attack were repelled with sword, and he aimed for my vital points when I was relaxing my guard.
But, I have regained my combat sharpness after the previous two duels. I countered his attack without any difficulty.
When we are already clashed sword around ten times? His feet were staggered due tiredness.
I am immediately took advantage from it and with the differences of our physical strength, I flicked the opponent sword.
I heard applause and praise from my surrounding again.

[Whoah, awesome. Frey, you’re not inferior than your father on swordmanship]

Lord Carprice is very excited and clasp my hand. I felt a little bit pain on my and due he gripped firmly.

[Frey. That’s really awesome performance. As expected from my Knight-sama]

Lady Flore praised me.

[Ye, yes. Thank you very much!!]

Today, At last I have become a true Knight. The [Crybaby Frey] went into joy on the day.

Several days has passed after I am fully like become a Knight.
After that day, the time when I accompany lady Flore is increasing more than before.

[Frey, there is an unusual flower blossoming in the garden. Let’s go to see it together]

[Frey, let’s take a bath together with me]

[Frey, let’s have breakfast together]

[Frey]

[Frey]

[Frey]

I am decided on my heart that I’ll be use more for the sake of lady Flore.
I made an effort to become a Knight whom lady Flore hoped.
Lady Flore’s Knight, stronger than anyone. Who doesn’t run away from the enemy.
Lady Flore’s knight, always fight fair and square. Always become the winner.
Lady Flore’s knight, who gonna guard the master on everytime.

And then, passing various trials with the aim become the knight who is lady Flore wanted.
Being the winner against the horde of monster alone.
Challenge duel with many knights, and always gain victories.
Gives foods to the poor childrens in the slums.

Accepting lady Flore’s dangerous request. I did it with pleasure.

Two years passed after I worked as Knight for lady Flore, there is instruction from Lord Caprice to left the town for awhile.
Apparently, a large horde of monsters were approaching the town.

[I understand. I’ll guard lady Flore without fail]

Even though I already said that, there are 4 adventurers were prepared as guard along with the wagon coachman.
Lord Caprice is sure worrywart father. Even though it’s annoying, but to save the Lord’s face I accepted the guards.

The several days we’re going out the town is going well. The guards have necessary skills needed on the forest..
The Lady Flore stayed obediently in the carriage, we’re able to get 70% dangerous distance safely.
However, the guards become made a commotion when we’re almost reaching Efuberu town which is our target.

[Knight-sama. There are a crowd of monsters around here. It become impossible to continue for awhile]

[This, we should change the road]

The guards made a plan.

[I see, so how long the schedule increase?]

[Let’s see, the schedule will increase a day because the detour]

Is the food and water suffice?]

[Yes, it’s safe. We have prepared a lot]

Thus, we made detour to reach Erubefu.
Although we’ve attacked several times by the monsters, we managed to repel it without damaging the wagon.

[During this detour, how many monsters type should be?]

A man starting to say something.

[This is, isn’t the erubefu is dangerous?]

It seems the guards begin to consider to run away. I called them.

[You guys, what are you saying]

[But, Knight-sama. This is nearby erubefu you know? If we’re keep our pace we’re gonna arrive before the evening of today]

[Do you will leaving us here!?]

[Not that. It’s because it’s weird there are monsters appear in this place]

[Is there any possibility there is a large crowd of monsters nearby?]

I laughed on their opinions.

[If it’s a large horde of monsters, they should heading to Bureto. There is impossible another horde to appear]

[I, it’s as you say]

Several hours later, we meet a large horde of monsters after this conversation, no one saw this coming.

[Ha, ha, ha, milady Flore, are you alright?]

[Ha, yeah, ha, I’m alright]

Lady Flore answered with mixing out of breath. She might gonna reached her limit slowly.
We’ve attacked by a large horde of monsters, we abandoned the wagon and running away. As for the adventurers guard, I saw two of them died. The other two were ran away, we’re most likely unable to escape if we didn’t following them from behind because we’re completely surrounded.
The coachman, he is the first person died when the monster attacked.
We are get down from the wagon while the adventurers were attacked by the monsters, we’re running away desperatedly.

[For the time being, there is seems no monster in surrounding]
[I see, I felt tired after running away in sudden. Let’s search for a place to resting]

There is seems no tension on lady Flore. To begin with, don’t you understand the current situation is dangerous for your life?

[I am very sorry. All of your luggage is on the wagon]

[Well, that’s terrible. Can’t we do something about it? There is my favorite tea set in there]

To mention tea set on this moment. No, this is probably a joke to calm me down on this extreme situation.

[I am sorry. To recollect them is impossible]

[I see, it can’t be helped]

It seems a joke after all. Her interest were lost immediately.

[Today, let’s take a rest in someplace in somewhere]

[Yeah, if there is any house nearby]

[Yeah]

This one too, must be a joke.
A little bit, it’s been a noisy in the front of our direction. When I was listening attentively, it seems not coming from a person.

[Gigi-]

[Gi, gi, gi]

There are 50 goblins in there.
I endured to not screaming for a moment and use my hand to my mouth.
When I was worrying if lady Flore gonna screaming like me, I saw her eyes were sparkling.

[It’s awesome, a real goblin]

[Milady, please lower your voice a bit]

[Ee, oh yeah. I’m sorry]

Apparently, the goblins seems gone to other place. A goblin who is bigger than others were lead them toward somewhere.
The goblin villages become quiet at once.
When I was watching the surrounding, lady Flore entered the village.

[M, milady. It’s dangerous. There might still be a goblin]

[Nee, that house seems suited for human to live. Can we stay resting there for today?]

It’s certainly the house which pointed by lady Flore, is way bigger for goblin. Is it for human? There is a human who live closes this tribe?

[We should not do it. We don’t know what is the inside]

[It’s alright, because Frey will defeat if something happen]

After said it, lady Flore walking to the house. I’m surprised the house is not locked.

[There is no one here. Frey, I am hungry]

Lady Flore begin to search something in the house.

[Look, there is foods. Frey, is it possible to cook it?]

[Don’t. We shouldn’t do it without permission]

[But, I am, is very hungry, you know?]

In the end, I have defeated with milady appeal and i took the food. We’re apologize and accept it gratefully.
As for the day, we’re put away the bed in the house.
Recently, because we’re often sleeping the open sky, our tiredness might already collected.
It’s already morning when I was woke-up. I don’t know the surrounding for a moment.
When I see the windows, there is someone looking into the house.
I wonder who is it. I stand-up from the bed and look through the windows, there is pair of goblin eyes from outside the windows.

[Uwaaaa!!]

It’s most likely surprised by my voice, the goblin on outside the windows were run away.

[Ha, Lady Flore!!]

I suddenly remember our current situation, i can’t found lady Flore in the house.
Don’t tell me, did she went out?
I put my armor in hurry and went out from house with my sword on my hand.
When I’m checking around, I found her.
I’m running when I saw milady seems being surrounded by several goblins.

[Milady—]

Surprised when heard my voice, the goblins were running away in various directions.

[What is it, Frey?]

[Are you alright?]

[Yeah, I’m playing with the goblins-san]

[It’s dangerous. Let’s return to the house now]

I am, took lady Flore hand and turn around back to home.
After that, I’m calmly understood after observing.
Apparently, the goblins seems not gonna enter this house.
Because, when I was prepared myself, opened the door, saw their appearance, and understand. Even though they were looking inside, they never coming inside.
Also, they seems not gonna harm us.
This one also, I confirmed it after I tried to approach the goblins.
Our safety seems temporary secured.
However, I unable to confirm how we can get out from here. I decided that we’re safest stay on this house.
I’m eating the food while remember the guilty. I went to sleep at once after the meal to recover my physical strength.
Tomorrow, I’ll manage to leave to Efuberu, perhaps we will immediately reaching it. Or perhaps we need one day because don’t know the direction.

[I want to wash my sweat]

On the next day, Flore-sama said that.
Fortunately, there is a space for bath on this house. I prepared the hot water for Flore’s bath.
I am also want to wash my body with the remaining hot water too. Flore-sama finished bath quickly to avoid catching the cold.
We’re endured to wear the same clothes again.

[I want to wear my favorite dress]

I want to apologize when I heard it. During that time, why I am not able to escape while gripping the one of the bags.
When I was about to apologize to lady Flore, the door which never opened, is open..

[Oi, I want to remind you, don’t touch anything inside the luggage.

I am, as the Knight of lady Flore must looked strong. So I made a determination, and asking to the man who suddenly appear.

[Yo,you, who are you!?]
