First time Going Out.


 

I turned the key with a click and the door was perfectly locked.

Schwarz-sama and I walked out of the gate side by side.

Since I’m going to be living here from today, I need to make sure I have a map of the neighborhood in my head.
Memorizing the scenery of the neighborhood, as I walked around…

“Ahh!”

Schwarz-sama was already dozens of steps ahead of me.
Huh… He’s leaving me behind!

I hurried to catch up with him.
But my small steps were not enough to keep up with his large stride.
Ah, he turned a corner!

I hurriedly ran to the corner, but I couldn’t find him…

“He’s not here…”

The general disappeared there.

What should I do, I’ve lost him.
I looked around in a residential area where similar walls lined the streets, and not only did I not know where I was going, but my sense of direction was also going haywire.


Aree?? Which way was the direction of the mansion?

As I was about to cry out in panic, a huge dark figure appeared from a street in the back.

Ah, he’s back.

Schwarz-sama walked up to me with a grim expression on his face.

“…Why aren’t you following me?”

I nearly started to cry as he asked me in a deep voice.

I couldn’t even speak, and the general sighed.

“If you didn’t want to come with me, you could have just waited back at home….”

“N-No, I didn’t!”

I shouted as quickly as I could.

“I wanted to walk with you, Schwarz-sama! I just couldn’t catch up…”


“Couldn’t catch up?”

I tried my best to explain to the General.

“First of all, we have different basic physical specifications.”

I stood beside him as I said this.

“As you can see, my height is shorter than your shoulders, isn’t it? Same goes for your waist.
Your waist is about the same height as my chest.
In other words, you have much longer legs than I do.
This means that your stride is also larger than mine.
One step for you is two or three steps for me, Schwarz-sama!”

“Uh-huhh”

“Besides, it seems to me that you walk much faster than the others, Schwarz-sama.
If I were a snail, you would be a lion.”

“So even if I ran as fast as I could… I couldn’t catch up with you.
Next time It wont’ happen…, so please forgive me!”

I bowed my head, but the general did not move.
I looked up at him fearfully and saw that he had a look of astonishment on his face with his hand on his chin.

“…So it was my fault that sometimes when I was traveling for work, I would look back and see my subordinates turning bright red and gasping for breath!?”

…You have also done it elsewhere…? Well, that speed is hard even for a man to keep up with.

“I thought they might have a pre-existing condition, so I had the military doctor give them a medical checkup.”


You are a good superior officer! But your concern is totally irrelevant.

“I see… I must have been moving fast.”

New discovery! Schwarz-sama nodded repeatedly as if to say.

“Um… please excuse me for saying something… impertinent.”

I apologized, and he simply said, 

“No, I wouldn’t have noticed if it weren’t for Michel.
I appreciate it.”

Wow, when was the last time someone thanked me for…?

“From now on, I’m going to walk around as if I were a snail.”

You don’t have to go to… that extreme though.

Schwarz-sama carefully narrowed his stride and started to walk, and I followed.

“Speaking of which, Michelle.”


“Yes?”

“You said earlier that you wanted to come with me?”

“Certainly.
I did.”

“I see…”

He scratched the back of his head in confusion.

“You see, many don’t want to be around me.”

He muttered.

He looks like a monstrous troll, the most powerful general in our country.

I was scared of him at first, too… but not so much now.

There is still a lot I don’t know, but I hope I can get familiar with him little by little.

Schwarz-sama kept pace with me, so this time we both made it to the market.
