Chapter 134 – Rumor of the Counterfeit Bills (Part 2)

Alexia gasped for breath when she was running along the street of the capital.

She heard someone talking about counterfeit bills.

Original translation from wangmamaread.

“The economic war between Mitsugoshi Company and the Great Commerce Association has begun, but the economy was boosted. And some black rumors are hidden deeply behind it.”

Today Alexia skipped a class deliberately and came here to investigate rumors of the counterfeit bills.

She knew that this morning many people exchanged bills to money. Everyone said that the Great Commerce Association would go bankrupt. This rumor spread quickly.

In the street people talked about the rumors and added inflammatory details to them. They rushed into the the Great Commerce Association quickly.

“There is something wrong happened.”

Alexia wanted to come back to capital as fast as she could and told her elder sister Iris the rumors.

Iris was in the dojo. She became a regular visitor here recently.

“Iris, I want to tell you something.”

She told all what she knew to her sister who held a sword made for practice.  

But Iris just looked at her sister with her red eyes.

“Alexia, I am training and please don’t bother me.”

“Iris, today something terrible happened in the capital…!”

“Alexia, I say I am training!”

“Iris…”

Alexia turned her eyes to the sword.

“Alexia, Do you understand? I have to improve my strength. I don’t want to lose again.”

 Iris lost at the Bushin Tournament that day, so she had changed a lot in various senses.

She didn’t want to feel disappointed again. It would be the first, as well as last time she lost.

Iris was eager to become stronger.

She wanted to be stronger and Alexia didn’t know when Iris started to focus on one thing only: to be stronger..

The member of [Crimson Knight Order] who liked Iris also asked why Iris changed.

Alexia thought the reason why they like Iris was Iris’s strength. But it was not only because of this.

There were some reasons more important…

“I know what you are thinking about. But please listen to me, just a moment.”

“…Is it OK? Just a moment.”

Iris put down her sword and looked at her sister.

“Mitsugoshi Company and the Great Commerce Association was contending against each other now. They made counterfeit bills…”

Alexia told her sister what had happened in the capital carefully.

But.

“…so what?”

She was not interested in it.

“I don’t care about whatever they did. It’s none of my business.”

“Iris, why…!”

Original translation from wangmamaread.

“Civil officers will pay attention to it. I am a knight for whom breaking into companies to kill people is not right.”

“M…maybe it’s not your responsibility. But if you are who you used to be, you will investigate and deal with it.”

Alexia’s voice became smaller and smaller.

“I have my job. If I can’t catch shadow, I won’t retrieve people’s trust…”

Iris’s gaze shifted from Alexia who bowed her head now and she started to swing her sword.

Her sword was sharp; the magic on the sword was strong.

But Alexia thought her sword was very ugly.

“Iris…”

Alexia’s face was sad, then she left dojo alone.

More importantly, they translated up to chapter 142 so this is redundant ; -;

    Someone already translated the 7th volume so it’s technically already translated up to chapter 166

Not true at all. The three month rule only applies to pickup requests on the forums. Translators are free to translate whatever they want.

you do know that its against NU rules to upload them on their site when it hasnt even been 2-3 months since the last upload, plus the other group is still doing it.

    Featurless Posted on9:56 pm - Apr 23, 2019

    Irc other mustn’t wait for 2-3 month since the last update,but they can join up together working on each different chapter,or they can work together and posting the chapter in their own site or posting one chapter in one site and the next chapter in the other site(like yado-inn and ebisu join work),or else you can ask other group to leave this work to you passing the baton

      Darklegions Posted on10:46 pm - Apr 23, 2019

      well he would still need all the previous chapters before he can legit upload, plus nowhere does it say hes in collabing with them, so hes simple stolen translation and posted it on NU without their knowing and permission
