Part 2/3 of Chapter 9.
Big thanks to sir Boomhauer! Thanks for donating again brother! God it makes me feel good to know I’ve got regulars who keep coming back.
Bash shut his mouth.
The Orc Hero knew nothing about her, but he imagined her appearance. If she was Judith’s sister, she must have been just as beautiful.
Another beautiful female knight…
It wasn’t hard to imagine what the Orcs did to her.
Back then, no one batted an eye at rape.
For Orcs, it was just standard procedure to violate female captives.
When the peace treaty, which included the rape ban, was signed, the Human representative, Blood-Stained Lily, beat down one of the Orcs and announced.
“You spit on our pride by raping the females of other races. Orcs! You are proud warriors, are you not! Every woman that has ever stepped on the field of battle is just as worthy and proud a warrior as you are! They come prepared to die! Do not insult them! Let them die with honor!”
Even after they understood the gravity of their actions, there were many whose sexual desires prevailed, those who wanted to keep things the way they are, and those who feared for the continuity of their race.
Not all Orcs, though.
“I’ve always hated Orcs. I hated those Orcs who broke my sister. My wonderful, dignified, intelligent sister. The sister that I looked up to…”
Judith’s face twisted with hatred, just at it had when she first met Bash.
She loathed the Orcs.
She wanted to kill them. To exterminate them.
Her hatred was so intense that you could nearly hear her thoughts.
However, her expression soon softened.
“But I’ve changed my mind. Now I know that there are good Orcs out there. Like you.”
Her hatred would never disappear.
But this experience was able to soften her heart a little.
Judith’s expression said as much.
Her story didn’t resonate much with Bash, but Zell seemed to pick up a sign from it.
She flew up to his ear again and whispered.
(Mister, this is definitely not going to work.)
(…No? She thinks I’m a good man, right? It should be fine.)
(No, no, no, no, it’s not about you being a good man, it’s about you being an Orc. This lady here would never agree to get with an Orc. Even you, Mister, you have races with which you would never mate, right?)
Certainly, there were also races that Bash wouldn’t even consider mating with.
For example, Lizardmen.
He didn’t want to have sex with a reptile.
It was hard to even distinguish if one of them was male or female.
Not to mention Killer Bees.
They’re literal Bees, and only gave birth to other Bees. Not even the strong Orcish genes could overtake their genetics.
Furthermore, once one of their females got pregnant, she would eat her mate.
Bash didn’t want to have sex only once in his life.
There were plenty of other races which just weren’t suitable for sex.
If to Judith, Orcs were one of those, then marrying her would definitely be impossible.
(Listen, Mister. You can’t get her as a wife, but she still thinks you’re a good guy! You’ve still got an opportunity here. Human women keep in touch with other Human women, you know? Maybe she can introduce you to another girl that doesn’t mind being with an Orc!)
A lineup of female knights just as beautiful as Judith appeared in Bash’s mind.
He liked every single one of them.
It was a shame that it didn’t work out with Judith, but if he could still get a good-looking female knight, then all is well that ends well.
(Oh, but you can’t just outright ask for an introduction. Human women don’t like being used just to get at their friends. They don’t like playboys.)
(So, what should I say?)
(Ah! Uhmm… Oh, I know! Maybe something along the lines of “I’m looking to meet people”.)
He could always rely on Zell, after all.
Were he on his own, he would never have had the wisdom to get this far.
“Judith, I have a favor to ask of you.”
“I’m looking to meet people like I did here in Krassel. Do you have any ideas?”
Judith tilted her head, confused as to the meaning of his words.
However, she immediately looked at Houston, surprised.
The Knight Commander, who had been listening to the pair’s exchange while standing just off to the side, had just nodded.
“If so, I might be able to help you.”
“Mu… you can?”
“I’m the Knight Commander of Krassel, you know. Being aware of worldly happenings and collecting information is one of my responsibilities.”
As Knight Commander, Houston’s rank was equivalent to an Orcish Great Warchief.
And a good Great Warchief will always look out for his warrior subordinates.
Conversely, a man who could not support his subordinates would never become a Great Warchief.
Orcs may be a simple race, but they weren’t stupid.
They were well aware of the qualities that made up a good commander.
A strong sword arm, like Bash’s didn’t necessarily translate to good commanding skills.
With that in mind, the Hero understood that the Knight Commander must be very familiar with the female knights that were working under him.
“You should head to the Land of the Elves, to the Forest Town of Siwanasi. I’m sure you’ll find what you’re looking for there.”
“Oh, Elves, is it?”
This was not the introduction he had imagined.
Bash had been hoping to meet another female knight.
But Elves were good too.
They weren’t as fertile as Humans, but it was possible for them to conceive with Orcs. Furthermore, their children would have considerable magical potential. They were a good match.
They were popular due to their longer lifespans, stronger bodies, and they had many beautiful individuals among them.
On the other hand, some Orcs disliked them. They though Elves were too skinny.
Though… Bash wasn’t one of them.
There weren’t any Elves back in the breeding grounds. It’ll feel special and exclusive if he were able to take on home.
He’d be able to save his dignity as a Hero.
(Elves, huh? That’s not bad Mister!)
(Yosh! Well, let’s head there as soon as possible.)
Satisfied, Bash turned on his heel.
Seeing this, Houston was surprised.
“Wait, where are you going?”
“To the Siwanasi Forest.”
Yes, the Siwanasi Forest wasn’t far away. From where they were right now, it was in the opposite direction from the Fortress City of Krassel.
There was no need to return to Krassel.
“…Why don’t you stay the night in Krassel? You’d be welcome!”
“I don’t have time for that.”
Bash wanted to lose his virginity as soon as possible.
If the Forest of Siwanasi was where he could find his next opportunity, then he had to go there as soon as possible.
“I thought we could celebrate our victory at the tavern tonight.”
“It’s too soon to celebrate. I haven’t achieved my goal yet.”
Houston seemed to want to insist a little more.
But he then gave Bash a defeated smile.
“You’re right. I understand. Then I won’t hold you back.”
The other soldiers who hadn’t taken part in the conversation looked at Orc with curiosity.
They eyes full of slight worry, they were wondering whether it was really alright to let him leave just like that.
But neither Houston nor Judith protested.
They silently looked at Bash’s back as he walked away…
Until Judith stepped forward.
He was expecting something.
“I’ll pray for your good fortune.”
It was nothing but a faint expectation.
He looked back over his shoulder towards Judith.
And he nodded.
The Orc Hero slowly walked away.
His destination: Siwanasi Forest.
