I found the robbers hideout after going deep into the forest. They are hiding in a cave.
"An academy boy?!" They looked surprised.
They were already very angry just by seeing this blatant presence of mine. They searched for their weapons and surrounded me from all directions.
"You were wrong to come here? You met your death!"
"Well, Im lost, anyway!" I smiled broadly in return.
*Swing! *Swing! *Swing!
They swung the sword wildly at me, incision hitting my body.
"Ahh... it hurts!" I lay down on the ground with my body all around inundated with blood.
"Hahaha ... Take this, Ill cut off your head!"
The pool of blood formed a sword and I immediately used it to cut off their arms.
"Arrrghh....!" The cry echoed, and all the birds flew in all directions.
"I was just joking! You can see for yourself, don you? This is a great weapon! It can change shape at will, soften and Harden, and even change color to resemble the clothes Im wearing. Im doing a demonstration, you can buy it--"
"What kind of nonsense is that?"
Someone who was about to attack me from behind ended up getting stabbed because this amazing clay was elongated and tapered like a sword.
"Oh, don throw up! You can dirty my uniform!"
I punched the guy until he bounced and hit the tree.
"Hmm ... looks like you don have the money to buy this masterpiece of mine! Too bad and... Sayonara!"
"Okay ... lets see, what do you get?" I jumped over some disgusting pools of blood.
I began to enter the cave where they kept the spoils. I found quite a lot of silver and bronze coins. Well, not bad.
There was a baby just lying on the floor of the cave and just wrapped in a sack. And oddly enough, the baby did not cry a bit.
I tried to hold him, " Hey, what are you?" I asked. Of course, there was no response, the baby just looked at me closely with his small eyes.
"I can take you. Well, heres the deal ...."I put the baby back and went out of the cave.
"Someone else might be able to bring it?"
Fire elemental magic shot into the sky and then exploded, causing a loud sound. I rushed out of the cave with the loot.
I returned as quickly as possible by increasing the strength of my legs with magic energy.
I arrived and immediately approached Amara who was sitting leaning under the tree while eating something.
"Rie, Where Have you been? Long time?!"
"That urination evolved into defecation!"
Amara looked at me with a suspicious look, she also seemed to be sniffing the smell coming out of my body. I don think there is a smell of blood, I can calm down.
"For a little while, I thought you were run over by a boar and ended up fainting."
"My sister, I may not be strong, but Im not that weak to lose to a boar."
"Hmm ... whatever!" Amara looked away while giving a parcel of food. "The replacement train that will transport us arrived in the afternoon. Well have to wait a few more hours."
"Troublesome! Its all because of the robber. Our schedules are falling apart!" I responded lazily, then sat down next to Amara.
"Perhaps the news of this attack has already reached the capital. Moreover, there is a knight who is on the same train as us!" Amara turned her gaze towards a man who was chatting with several people.
"Hmm? Did the robbers escape?!" I ate the beef sandwich my sister gave me.
The magic energy is quite large. He turned out pretty strong! I watched the Knight.
"Hey, sister. Did you hear an explosion in the woods?" I sparked a new conversation topic.
"I heard it. People also started going to check it out and until now have not returned. Are they stupid? Thats something dangerous!" Amara gave a caustic comment.
The people referred to returned after half an hour. They returned with a baby and a shocking report.
"The robber who attacked us is dead?"
Everyone was shocked by the news.
"Rie, is it possible?"
Since the incident with the bandits five years ago, Amara believes there is someone who has already saved her. She said she saw a little boy. He is enveloped by something kind of slime that can change shape and Harden.
"Could it be? Without us knowing it may be that he has been in the forest for 5 years and hunts all criminals."
Well, thats my routine. Hunt bandits and loot their treasures.
"Can we meet him?" the innocent-sounding Amara asked and her voice softened a little.
I sighed and looked up at the sky. "Yes, we are just waiting for the time to arrive."
I have no reason to show my true self, anyway.
After several hours of waiting, the replacement train finally arrived. We arrived in the capital in the evening when the selection was completed. However, due to the incident on the train, we were compensated.
Amara and I did a follow-up selection that night. The result is ... yeah, we graduated. I got the lowest grade and Amara ... I think one of the highest among all new students. Her written exam got a perfect score as well as her enormous magical energy capacity.
"Yeah, the first step is over. The second step is to become an elite student and be chosen as the schools representative at the annual royal event!" a very ambitious Amara said.
She can make it happen, I guess?
"My sister? Can you find lodging? I-I am ... yeah, theres business!?" I said with some hesitation.
Amara was holding onto my clothes as I was about to run away.
"I told you, right, my weak brother?! If you wander alone in this city, you may be kidnapped by slave traders and sold. You want that to happen?" Amaras face turned terrible.
"Y-yeah, I don want to, anyway."
"Therefore... Ill hold your hand. Ill never let go!"
Yeah, this is bad. I was planning to hunt down criminals in the capital and get their money.
Whats all that money for? Of course, enrich themselves... Im not the main character who has a high sense of justice.
Huh, one thing...
My sister is such a nuisance!
