Lightning Empress Maid

L.E.M. C.10: Even Nanaki is stumped

Peerless Pig

“Zean-sama, can I say something?”


ask away

After that day, the situation around my master completely changed. When he enters the classroom he is greeted, and more people have come to talk to him between lessons. Nanaki that wasn’t here at the time doesn’t know, but master probably endured for a long time.


I want to ask him, his feelings now.

about nanaki?

Constantly looked down upon as weak, constantly spoken ill off, even so you reached out. And grasped, fought, won. Does this position correspond to master’s pride? If that is so, be happy. That is not shame, it is the right of the winner. If you were happy, Nanaki would be able to congratulate you.

just do it?

A servant cannot one-sidedly congratulate the master. That is not an action of a good servant. Nanaki knows. The will that dwells in those sapphire eyes. Proud master, you are still aiming higher right? In that case. I cannot do something that would cause you to loosen up like congratulating you.


Respected and beloved Mother, my master has become a prideful person. I want to support him. Such that he does not veer from that path. Having pride is not as simple thing. That is why Nanaki wants to congratulate master. I am still a novice as a servant.

“Zean-sama, about the negotiations with my household recently, thank you very much.”

“Likewise, it helped me, thank you.”

not nanaki

Yes, having pride is not a simple thing. Not just anyone can make that step like master did. After the day master became one of the strong, his classmates changed their attitudes. I will not say that that is a bad thing. Getting closer to the strong is not shameful.

there is no shame in survival

But they are not apologising for their impoliteness until now. That’s why they are animals.


Now that Vilmott Arkahn’s influence has fallen, they should first apologise. They might have something they have to protect, it might have been a time when they couldn’t hold pride. That is why Nanaki does not scorn that behaviour.

….did you not just do that?

But Nanaki will not recognise them, those who did not take the step when the chance was there, the step in order to hold pride. Exactly, these are Nanaki’s feelings. Well even if it is just an act to my master, there is nothing wrong with appearing to have more allies.


Hm, what’s wrong Friend? What, my face is scary? That’s not good. There is a danger of proud master’s servant, Nanaki, becoming an obstacle in master’s connection making because of her grim expression. I should change it quickly.

smile nanaki smile

Reach the world, Nanakismile. Everyone of the world, it’s Nanaki.

say cheese

“Gu……gigii……laughing at me……!!”


You planned this didn’t you, Friend?


The fallen king that had many people waiting on him just a while ago, fumed. The foolishness he showed that day revealed his true nature to many people. Despite making such a foolish move, the next day he found fault with everyone in the class. No, everyone excluding my master.

even he honours the duel

To nobles, duels seem to be special. Vilmott Arkahn never made a move on master. But by blaming everyone, people distancing themselves is inevitable. Nanaki will not sympathise with that lonely figure in the classroom. And I will not be negligent.

negligence is your greatest enemy

Nanaki, who was brought up in the wild, knows. The scariness of a cornered beast. This applies to humans too, I will not scorn those eyes filled with madness. Come at us anytime, by master’s side there is Nanaki. And do not forget. The proud knight that protected you that day is gone.


Despite showing such devotion, the next day when Vilmott Arkahn attended school, her figure was not at his side. Please overcome it somehow, that suffering. You are strong, do not forget that. Let’s pray Friend, for her, whom no one else can pray for.


Glory to that proud knight.





——what’s that.

boom boom


boom boom boom

It was not a voice. This Nanaki, this proud Nanaki, is shaken? Wrong, this is being speechless. How long has it been, that Nanaki has last become speechless. My pulse sped up at this emotion I have not had in a long time. First calm down, let out my voice. And ask. It’s calling masters name after all.


“ah…….Master, that woman……”


It came out. Keep going, try hard Nanaki. Trying hard Nanaki.

that bad?

“…………She is kind of my fiancee.”



I became speechless again. After I finally got out my voice, what have you done my master.

…what’s going on?

When I looked at master who responded after a short silence, he was silently closing his eyes. Which means that woman at the school gates waving this way is master’s fiancee. That means standing here and making her wait is rude. But master is keeping his eyes closed and not moving.

….tell me

To come to pick up master at dismissal time, what a loving person. I think that is a great thing. If she is master’s fiancee, Nanaki must support their relationship. But this is——


Mo, Mother. Can you listen to my confession?

Yes, dear (finally)

Nanaki seems to extremely inexperienced as a servant. The Nanaki right now is not fitting to be a prideful servant. I cannot support their relationship. It is for an extremely personal reason. I beg you, please scold me. Could I ask for some harsh words, Nanaki doesn’t seem to be able to support their relationship.

bad girl!

Like my master’s heart, his appearance is quite splendid. I think there are many girls who like that golden hair, sapphire eyes and good-looking face. Even from an unbiased viewpoint, Nanaki thinks he has the appearance of a prince.

prince charming

In that case, Nanaki wants to request that his partner be of a suitable appearance. I won’t ask for a peerless beauty, but I want it to be an existence that can shine standing next to master. Of course, I am extremely aware that this is Nanaki’s personal feelings.

don’t just people based on aappearence

But, but Mother.


I, I know. I will not do something like judge people by their appearances. But Nanaki cannot imagine this woman standing next to master. No, if I actually got her to stand next to him, I could probably accept it. No it’s a lie, I have no confidence in accepting it. Why not just hit me Mother.


“Aah, Zean-samaa!”


I think it cannot be conveyed properly by voice alone. It is shameful, but Nanaki thinks she will use the appropriate expressions to describe it. I am not used to it, so there may be many parts unpleasant to hear, but please forgive me. Then this unworthy Nanaki shall try her best to convey it.

try your best

“Aah, Zean-sama! It is me! Your Shiel!”


Dosun! Dosun! Dosun! ……It is the sound of footsteps Mother.


“Ah, I could finally meet you! Please give Shiel a good look at that face!”

its a nice face after all

Bugaah! Bugaah! Bugogo! ……It’s the sound of breathing Mother.


“Shiel’s loved one! I missed you!”

what a lovestruck maiden

Nichaaaa…….It’s a smile Mother.


Has even a little of Nanaki’s thoughts been conveyed? And now my face is very hot. Even if it was in my heart, to make this kind of sound effects like a child is embarrassing. If I said it out loud I might die. I think I will punch my friend who is roaring with laughter now.

…it’s okay dear

“It’s been a while Shiel. I’m happy to be able to meet you.”

“Me too, Zean-sama!”

“Oh yeah, let me introduce you. This is the new maid Nana——Nana.”


Until now Master has yet to introduce me to someone. He is probably concerned about my identity. Thank you very much , good master. But for some reason I feel like I’m being treated as a shield. No, of course I don’t mind. Nanaki is the servant of master after all.


“I am Shiel Mercury. Please treat me well, Nana Nana-san.”


Master, Nanaki’s name has become something amazing.

The end


Hecate’s side note: I just remembered I should change the “about me this site” page………I will do it……….’later’
