My Pet Is a Holy Maiden - 72
The Truth of the Trial
"I see…a spotted wildcat…"
Now that he had heard Tatsumi's tale, Morganeich gave him another careful look.
"So you've come to the point of being able to challenge such beasts… You've improved quite a lot."
"Uh, no, um… I still have a long ways to go compared to you…"
Indeed, in the past year, Tatsumi had trained long and hard. But even so, his current abilities were no match for the Free Knight in front of him. While Tatsumi had grown a lot in the past year, it was not as if Morganeich had been playing in the meantime.
"Speaking of which, did you also fight against the spotted wild cat?"
"Aye. I've fought that monster before."
"And… Did you defeat that monster on your first attempt?"
"My first attempt was a failure much like yours… Actually, the same could be said for others as well. Many monster hunters have gone against that monster, and I believe most were defeated on their first battle."
It was long ago when he was just starting to be accepted as a full-fledged hunter by those around him. Morganeich had accepted this task much like Tatsumi.
He had gone with Calcedonia, his partner at the time. High-spirited, they challenged the spotted wildcat, and just like Tatsumi, they were completely powerless against it.
And much like Tatsumi, both Morganeich and Calcedonia had been overwhelmed with disappointment by this.
"But, we challenged it again after that… And we won."
Morganeich said quietly. But an unwavering confidence could be felt from the words.
"Ho- how… How did you achieve victory over the monster!?"
Tatsumi could not help but lean forward as he asked this. Morganeich just looked back at him, he was trying to hold back a burst of laughter.
Morganeich could well understand what Tatsumi was feeling right now. He too had searched for this answer and been troubled over it after the first defeat.
Surely the veterans around him at the time had looked at him with the same emotion as he looked at Tatsumi now.
And thinking of this had almost brought on a fit of laughter. Of course, it was not laughter aimed at Tatsumi, but at his past self.
