“Oops, I grazed my knee.”
“Oi, you didn’t put on your knee pad?”
“Well~, I forgot.”
You obviously did that on purpose!
Listening to their conversation, I cursed at the knight next to me.
I’m a Knight working at the frontline base of Knights of the Kingdom of Agverde.
I was born in the royal capital but was assigned to this base after graduating from the knight academy.
Until recently there were active battles, but it’s quite peaceful right now.
I devote myself to training every day while attentively watching for changes at the border.
Well, a little while ago, a beautiful man came to this base.
The beautiful man works in the infirmary, he’s called Lord Louie.
Dark hair reminiscent of the figure of the Spirit Mephis, black eyes that cry in a mysterious atmosphere.
A delicate body that stands gorgeously among the rough knights.
The smile that touches us with a soft demeanor.
We can’t meet each other on a daily basis but among us knights, we admire him because he’s as unattainable as the stars.
There are some insolent knights in this base, who always want an excuse to go to the infirmary.
Well, that’s also the case for me, but…
“Ah, Deputy Chief Tarta is skipping again.”
“He’s definitely in the infirmary, shit, I’m so jealous.”
Deputy Chief Tarta seems to be one of them as well.
He was at this base until about half a year ago when the battle was ongoing, but then he was assigned to another base.
Prior to that, when former Chief Harris was transferred to the royal capital, he returned again.
He was so attracted to the new doctor that he flew to the infirmary as soon as he came.
He’s so lucky~
Lord Louie, if you go there in the afternoon at this timing, he’ll treat you to some of his homemade pastries and black tea…
“Hey, weren’t you on equipment duty today?”
When a colleague told me this, I suddenly realized that I had forgotten about my duty.
In addition to training, the knights have duties that we take turns doing.
I had to check if the oil and equipment in the weapon maintenance room had run out today.
“Shit! I’m going now!”
I decided to hurry to the weapon maintenance room.
When I arrived at the maintenance room, another knight was already on duty.
“Uh, I should be on duty for the weapons today…”
“Eh? You’re kidding, I thought it was my turn…”
The two of them looked at the timetable with an inexplicable face, and it seemed that the two of their duties were mixed up due to some mistake in the table.
When I asked the staff, they told us to work together for the time being.
It was said that he would report to the leader, so we went on with our duties.
The two of us did the work together, so we were able to finish up pretty quickly.
“Lucky~”, we both thought and left the weapon maintenance room.
I usually train at this time, but I’m really free right now.
…What should I do?
Something good came to mind.
There’s a large communal bath in the knight’s building.
For the time being, there’s a small bathroom in my room, but…As I thought, I’d like to sweat in a big bath.
I can occupy the big bath by myself at this time!
With that in mind, I made preparations and headed for the public bath.
For some reason, when I walked to the door excitedly, I felt someone’s presence.
What, so I wasn’t the only one.
Perhaps the knight I parted ways with earlier thought of the same thing.
As I walked to the dressing room while thinking so…
The beauty of the infirmary, Lord Louie, was standing there.
His milky skin was dyed a rosy red after taking a bath, and his beautiful black hair was still wet, a few streaks stuck to his face.
Water droplets ran down his thin waist, which drew a soft ridgeline as he greeted me with a smile.
“Isn’t everyone always training right now? It’s rare to have a knight here at this time.”
Lord Louie used a big towel to wipe himself dry while saying so.
“Y-yes, uh, I finished my duty early today.”
“I didn’t know there was such a thing.”
I placed my items on the shelf while feeling nervous.
As I continued the conversation, I could feel my body temperature rise.
So Lord Louie always comes to the public bath at such an early hour!
I could see his pearl-like skin that’s completely different from my knight colleagues.
This luscious sight is going to dazzle me.
However, if I stare at it forever, I’ll seem suspicious.
I started taking off my clothes to keep calm.
Looking from the corner of my eyes, Lord Louie seems to be wiping the water on his body.
I can see the beautifully coloured chest decorations flickering, then blood rushed to my head.
After taking off my clothes, I hesitated to take off my pants.
I had to touch the region in the middle to check whether there were any changes to it.
“This bath feels good, doesn’t it? The ones in the room are so narrow.”
“Y-y-you’re right! That bath isn’t big!”
I thought I was being blamed for checking my crotch and answered with my voice cracked.
“Ehh? Is your throat not in a good condition?”
Lord Louie looked at me with a laugh.
Woahh, his skin smells so good, and his important part under the towel, it’s as if I can see it but I can’t.
I know that the way I’m behaving is really suspicious but, hm? Lord Louie is looking at me with his head tilted…
Ahh, Lord Louie…! You’re too cute…!
The core of my head was pounding, and I instinctively tried to reach for Lord Louie’s shoulders…At that moment, Captain Caesar appeared from the door of the bath.
“I found you. Hey, about the mistake on the timetable…”
“Ah, Lord Caesar.”
When Lord Louie called out to him, Captain Caesar had an astonished look on his face as he dropped the schedule in his hand.
For some reason, I feel like the Captain’s blonde hair is puffing up too…?
“C-Captain, what did you need…Gah-!!”
As soon as I said so, I was pulled to the ground.
I hit my nose, and without knowing what was going on, I lay on the floor in pain.
I could hear Captain Caesar and Lord Louie’s conversation.
“Lord Louie, could it be that you come to this public bath every day……”
“Eh? I do.”
When I moved my gaze while lying on the floor, I saw Captain Caesar being at a loss.
“Y-you!! Some knights could come in like this, you know!!”
“Eh? But this is the first time I’ve met a knight here like this…”
“Quickly get dressed!!”
After putting on clothes, Lord Louie was taken away by Captain Caesar.
I feel like I could hear small arguing voices, but I couldn’t hear their words.
Ahh, Lord Louie…I wanted to talk with him a little more…
Even so, it might have been dangerous in many ways if we were alone…
Was it better like this, no, my nose hurts so it’s not any better…
As I was mourning while holding my aching nose, I could feel Captain Caesar coming back.
He’s kind of amazing…No, there’s nothing amazing about this, I feel an extraordinary murderous intent coming from him.
It wasn’t cold, but I felt my body trembling.
My shoulders jolted as I was called out.
Captain Caesar grabbed my hair and made eye contact with me.
W-what is it…!? You’re too scary…!!
Sharp, too sharp.
My teeth quivered at the hawk-like gaze hunting its prey.
I remembered up to that point, but my memory was blank after that.
I couldn’t stand the murderous gaze of Captain Caesar and seemed to have fainted.
A while after that, Captain Caesar went all out with his training.
For some reason, he didn’t give me any injuries that made me go to the infirmary, he was just exhausting my strength, but…
“Isn’t he keeping his eye on you?” my colleague asked, but I didn’t think so.
However, I was trained to death and felt like I’ve gotten better.
…Let’s participate in this year’s swordsmanship tournament in the royal capital.
I thought so.
