The first thing Ionis saw as she opened her eyes was Hiiro’s blunt expression . Then Muir clapped on her shoulder, producing a ‘pop’ .
「Un, Io-chan is sooooo cute!」(Muir)
A delightful smiling face was directed at her .
「Take this . 」(Silva)
Thereupon, as one would expect from a butler, Silva gave Ionis a hand mirror .
「Take a look, Io-chan!」 (Muir)
Even as Muir told her thus, she still was trembling in uneasiness as she hadn’t confirmed the outcome yet . But when she looked at the people standing around, everyone gave her nods of affirmation and smiled .
Then Ionis cleared her throat and slowly lifted the mirror into the front of her face .
And there ………………………………………… there was not a single stain on her baby-like skin reflected on the mirror .
In an instant, a large amount of tears flowed out of Ionis’ eyes . Muir tightly hugged her,
「Un-un, It’s good…… It’s good, Io-chan . 」
「Higu… . . gusu…… . Ueeeeeeeeeeeeen!」 (Io) ((crying sounds . ))
Everyone but Hiiro was looking at the two of them with pleasure .
After she finished sobbing, she became silent, hanging her head in shame of the embarrassment of defenseless crying .
「Thank you, Hiiro-kun . 」(Shu)
Suddenly he got a voice of gratitude from Shublarz .
「I just did the request . If you want to thank someone, talk to the Chibi that requested me . 」
Looking at the disappointed Hiiro’s attitude, Shublarz shrugs her shoulders with a smile .
「Of course I am grateful to that child, but still, let me say it . I thank you . 」
Normally her smile was voluptuous, always attracting the men around her, but this time, her smile was naturally and innocent . One could see with one glance that she truly was grateful .
「H-he truly is our hero! I-i truly was deeply moved!」(Herbreed)
For some reason Herbreed’s stared at them with sparkling eyes as he remembered his excitement over Hiiro’s actions . There couldn’t be done anything done against it in such a situation, but Hiiro felt that no matter how much time passed, he’d never grew accustomed to it .
As his back became itchy, he started to move in order to get away from here –
Kui…… . (SFX)
He felt that his clothes were being pulled . As he looked there was Ionis, standing with her head hanging down, slightly pulling his clothes with index finger and thumb .
「………… . What’s the matter?」(Hiiro)
But she didn’t speak . After he waited for a while, Ionis faintly raised her face . One could clearly see that her cheeks were bright red .
「… . . ank you…… . 」 (Io) ((she says “…gatō…” as in arigatō))
Ionis chewed on her lower lip, then she suddenly gulped . She slowly opened her mouth .
「Tha…… . Thank you!」
It seems she just wanted to thank him .
（… . . why does it take her this amount of time just to say ‘thank you’?）(Hiiro)
It was truly incomprehensible . ((Yeah, as if . )) It wasn’t that bad to be told ‘thank you’, so he didn’t plan to investigate it any further .
Apart from that, seeing her being that desperate to thank him somehow piqued his interest and his face loosened .
「Don’t worry about it . 」(Hiiro)
Misunderstanding Hiiro smiling at her, Ionis said 「… . . be……careful…… . 」 and turned hot . ((TL-Lib . : She says 「……あぅ……なの……」and as the “no” is (still) just her way of speaking, it would be: あぅな – doesn’t have any meaning I know of . However, あうな (difference between ぅand う) can mean something like “Don’t have an accident!” …))
「Oh dear…」 (Shu)
Shublarz pleasantly smiled as she saw her getting completely embarrassed . And then Hiiro looked at Muir .
「It seems like she suffered extremely harsh damage in her past . 」(Hiiro)
「Uhmm… . . well, thanks a lot!」(Muir) ((the “uhm” – eto – is cut into two parts originally…))
「Why are you thanking me?」
「B-because you cured Io-chan for me . 」
「If that’s the case you better respond with a delicious meal . 」
Looking at her face one could clearly see that Muir was still happy about her friend’s restoration .
「As for you, Old Man, I’m afraid to say that you might have won this round but will lose the game in the end . 」(Hiiro)
「W-well! That’s your fault!」(Arno) ((Lib . ?))
Arnold also still wanted to take complete victory, but he felt the weight of Herbreed’s and Ionis’ loss as a result suddenly awakening inside of him .
He looks at Muir and Arnold, then focused onto Muir .
「As I’ve said before, the Chibi seems to have become stronger . 」(Hiiro)
He lightly poked her forehead wearing a smile and Muir got shy . ((changed colon to full stop))
「Ehehe…… . 」
And yet she was laughing while joyfully touching her forehead . Looking at her smiling face, Arnold made a sullen displeasured face . ((Lolicon . And doting father . ))
「Such words coming from Hiiro…」(Arno)
「Won’t you also participate? When the heck are you going to start?」
Muir was also interested in that topic and motionlessly stared at him .
「Aah, about that matter . 」(Hiiro)
The two of them focused on Hiiro’s mouth .
「I’m next . 」
((Hell yeah . ))
As her Muir came back to the camp, Mimir was rushing over with uneasiness, smiling in order to give a feeling of relieve .
「Your arm…… is it alright?」(Mimir)
「U-un . But it hurts . 」(Muir) ((u-un is stuttered un=nod . Don’t mix it up with uun))
「Please go and receive medical treatment immediately!」(Mimir)
As she frantically gave off her own feelings of worry, Muir’s heart became warm . ((the author wrote Mimir’s heart became warm, but as it is Mimir who is worried… . and you can easily mix them up))
「Arnold-san as well, please let your body rest by all means . 」(Mimir)
「Thanks a lot, Mimir-sama . 」(Arno)
Then Rarashik approached together with Leowald .
「I’ve seen something interesting, did that youngster do something?」(Rara)
As Arnold explained it to Rarashik, Leowald, who stood nearby, growled in admire .
「Hmm, so he can also do such a thing . Hiiro is really a surprising fellow . 」 (Leo)
「Haha, that guy is certainly a force full of mystery . 」(Arno)
Hearing those words, now the first princess Kukklia also showed great interest and looked at Hiiro standing in the crater’s center . ((I’m following Kiriko’s index of names here . Personally, I like “Kuclear” better, but I can see why they didn’t take it . Pronunciation …))
「The next fight will be that child?」(Kuk)
「Eh? Oh, yes, that’s true . 」(Arno)
Arnold directly looked at her .
「Is he really that strong?」(Kuk)
「Haha, in fact I don’t know about his current ability . But I guess the fact that the King accepted him met my expectations . 」(Arno) ((Lib . ?))
「Fu～un… . . I can’t believe it . 」(Kuk)
Certainly Kukklia couldn’t see his abilities by constantly looking at the delicate figure of Hiiro, but that couldn’t be helped .
「Kukklia, watch closely now . That man now, a 『Humas』, is called the 『Evila』‘s hero . That strength…… . I verified it with my own eyes . 」(Leo)
「…… . Understood, father . 」(Kuk)
Leowald made a small nod –
「Now, the next ones are you, guys . We got two victories in a row, but don’t lose focus until it ends . Apparently, it seems like the next opponent is going to be that hero . 」(Leo)
「「「Ha!」」」 ((I’d guess はっ is a military form of はい, like “Sir, yes sir!”… I left it as “ha!”))
The answer came from three people kneeling in front of Leowald . Those three men were 【Passion】s pride, the 《three beast warriors》 . ((I’m not sure anymore how they were called exactly, and I’m too lazy to look it up . If you’d kindly… . ?))
「The combination of the three of you is perfect . You see, although I said it earlier already, you won’t take your opponent lightly, will you? And even if I say this, Barid, and especially Crouch, don’t worry to much . 」(Leo) ((the last sentence – I’m not sure about it…))
Two of them shortly nodded .
「Alright, see you later! Come back after you grabbed the 『Gabranth』s victory with your very own hands!」(Leo)
