Lightning Empress Maid

L.E.M. C.1: Ouch

Meeting You Under the Moonlight with a Headbutt

——————Nanaki was led by the blue bird of happiness, just kidding.

kappa

Nanaki has gotten enough composure to be able to spout such poetic expressions.

serenity

Mother, today Nanaki is still on a journey to find a world Nanaki has not seen, a world Nanaki can love. Nanaki is looking up at the beautiful sky , rocked by the leisurely advancing cart. Ah, if it is just the sky, this world is beautiful. After all that has happened, Nanaki’s heart is currently being healed by the feeling of being rocked in a cart pulled by a horse. Do your best, Horse-san.

neigh

It has been three days, it seems that pursuers from the empire are not coming for now.

peace

In that case, while this peaceful time continues, Nanaki would like to make a report. It is about me after beloved and respected Mother passed away. There was no happiness in a world where Mother has disappeared. There was only hardship. Nanaki has suffered a lot. So just a little bit is fine, please praise Nanaki.

otsukaresama

Like Mother said, Nanaki was special.

tokubetsu

At the age of ten, Nanaki met god. Please be surprised, he is the famous Lightning of Legend, Ilveng=Nazgul. It seems it has been a thousand years since the god world war ended, but the age where gods ruled humans has ended, this is the age where humans rule gods. That was quite a fierce battle.

boom

Please laugh, I have not prayed even once. Even though humans pray to god. somehow I always thinks like this, that is just convenient. If you pray only when necessary, in the end is it really faith? If I were god, I might crush those people, heavenly punishment.

HOLY

At the end of the death match, I defeated Ilveng=Nazgul and we became what could be called friends. Please rejoice Mother, even this incompetent daughter has made a lifelong friend. That made me recall Mother’s words, that I really am special. But the one who is special is not just me.

transcended beings

Yes, the other Five Emperors Nanaki parted with a few days ago. They are also transcended ones that have dominated gods. The strongest five people on the continent, that Nanaki was chosen for such an honourable title was something Nanaki was proud of. In order to repay that favour, Nanaki has devoted herself to the imperial capital.

good work

But with just one sentence from a prophecy, Nanaki has become an enemy of the empire.

betrayl

——————It seems, I will destroy the world.

intermission


intermission

An aristocrat’s town with parts that have remained since ancient times, Freyline.

welcome

Could the world I can love be here in this town that uses horse carriages to commute in this age where humans can fly in the sky? Greetings ladies and gentlemen, I’m Nanaki. I have various circumstances but I will be intruding.

irashaimase

“Thank you very much.”

“Don’t mind it, it’s just helping out each other. What has ojou-san come to Freyline for?”

“I have come in pursuit of happiness.”

“Hahaha, it would be nice if you can obtain it.”

grab it

It was a nice sociable smile. So I left with a smile too. Thank you uncle, thank you horse-san. Thanks to you it has been a blissful time, I pray that one day I will be able to return this favour. Please be well until that day.

bye

“Now then.”

Now what

The current Nanaki is just Nanaki. Even if Nanaki is looking for a world Nanaki can love, if Nanaki has no funds Nanaki cannot go on a journey. Since there was a death match with the Five Emperors, I have left my fortune in my home in the capital. If Nanaki keeps passing the time idly, Nanaki will have to sleep while looking up at the pretty night sky tonight.

camping

That would be nice too. For a while after Mother passed away, Nanaki desperately survived in the wild. To come in contact with the earth again is not bad.

outdoors

But Nanaki is already of an age that could be called an adult. If Nanaki is an adult, Nanaki must take the actions of an adult. For the time being, let’s earn enough to get through today. This is an aristocrat’s town, it is said that fortunes are transferred around regardless of day or night.

rolling in money

There is probably a job or two lying around. Please do not worry Mother. Something of this level is not even a hardship. Please watch over Nanaki with the feeling of riding a large ship. No, even a boat of mud is fine, if the ship sinks, just swim.

(T/N: mud boat)

But, Nanaki was made to realise.

too late

Nanaki cannot swim.

welp

“The moon is beautiful.”

yeah

By the time Nanaki has realised it, the veil of night has descended. Good evening moon-sama, I’m Nanaki. How are you?

well

In the end, it came to having to sleep on top of a thin cloth spread on the cold concrete in a dark alleyway. Although Nanaki said Nanaki could be called an adult, from the viewpoint of the world, Nanaki seems to still be a child. They all turned Nanaki away at the door.

child labour

There was just one agency that would hire me, but it was a brothel. In order to protect Mother’s prideful lineage, Nanaki will choose the concrete of the alleyway. If possible please praise me. But please scold me occasionally. Today Nanaki will try to see a dream of Mother, because Nanaki wants warmth.

concrete be cold

And so, good night. Mother.

good night

“Hehe, it’s really the ojou-chan from noon.”

“Isn’t this quite a catch? Tonight’s gonna be a good night.”

good morning

Nanaki wakes up early, please praise me Mother.

good girl

Even if it is the aristocrat’s town, ruffians exists everywhere. Ah, even though Nanaki was able to fully enjoy my new days, this is such a waste. Nanaki doesn’t want to love such a world, people should be kind to people. Or would these two people extend a hand to Nanaki sleeping on the cold alleyway?

nope

“Hey ojou-chan, it’s sudden but play with us a bit.”

“It’ll be an unforgettable night.”

for you

The extended hand was that of a low-life. It will be cut off.

chop

Ilveng=Nazgul is getting excited saying summon me, summon me. But Friend, these two are not something you need to dirty your hands for. Please believe and trust in Nanaki. Actually you have a habit of being too strict on humans. It would be better to try to have a more kind heart.

kindness

Even like this, Nanaki is a former Five Emperor, they are too lacking to even be opponents. What are those amateur steps full of openings? Would you learn if Nanaki kicked you flying a little? If you take another step, both your faces will become ugly. Although it was originally like that so it cannot really be undone, but please do not resent Nanaki.

bishi

“Hehehe……——————heh?”

buf

But they never took another step.

pachi

“——————hii!?”

“Mo, monster……!!”

zap

The night sky is lit up by lightning. The delayed thunder shook the world.

boom

What are you doing Friend, I told you to trust Nanaki. What, you didn’t strike them? A kind heart? You don’t understand, Ilveng=Nazgul, you don’t understand at all. Your kindness is bad for me.

hitting is love

Take a look Friend.

?

The beautiful night world is being lit up by man-made lights after your intense flash and thundering just now. This is like, ‘what the heck is going on in the middle of the night!’, this is the anger of humans. And do you remember? For one, I am being pursued. Lightning struck in Freyline,.anyone who heard would know it is Nanaki.

sry

And I intend to keep trying and earn money tomorrow too. That means Nanaki cannot provoke the anger of the people of this town. Who would hire the person who caused a lightning strike in the middle of the night, Friend, please reflect.

ah

Ah, how has it become like this? Those two people from before turned tail and ran from this special Nanaki, Nanaki who is Mother’s daughter. Before anyone else comes, Nanaki slipped from the alleyway, and headed deeper into the darkness. Newfound respect for Nanaki’s former bitter enemy in nature, the rat.

thx qianweijia

Full speed ahead, hard starboard.

engine boost

——————When I ran through the alley at full speed and turned right, there was a prince.

kira

Shining golden hair lit up by the moonlight and sapphire eyes. To be able to turn the corner in an alley and meet a prince, this world might be a fairytale. The prince’s expression became one of surprise, even in that instant, just that change in expression had an elegance to it.

ikeman

But I’m sorry, prince.

why

Nanaki cannot stop suddenly.

w0t

“Guo!?”

ow

Forgive Nanaki.

End


Hecate kinda translated this and the prologue listening to sad music and got slightly depressed~It should pick up from here…?

Edited(10/3/2017): didn’t listen to sad music this time, so the headbutt was more hilarious~

Edit(4/9/2017): English dependency on the use of pronouns has never been more irritating.
