Lightning Empress Maid

L.E.M. C.22: Great wall of Nanaki

Master Maid will Leave Coolly~Ze~

“My win, Meia.”

“Gu…………I admit defeat……”


Cessation of hostilities.

peace has arrived

There is nobody who wouldn’t lose their fighting spirit after seeing Friend’s smile that summons lightning.

A dreadful smile

Nanaki has learnt that people are enlightened about the futility of fighting before a god’s smile. It has nothing to do with big or small. Human sisters, Nanaki’s weakpoint should be abandoned. Nanaki recommends to Nanaki that we should promptly take post-war measures for now. Roger, commence.

peace measures

First switch my work clothes in my personal room. Do not forget to wipe down my body while doing that. After finishing that prepare three bath towels at top speed. Inspection, fluffiness confirmed, no stains. Presentation approved. Even if the rain clouds were blown away by a smile, it was raining until just now, it would be bad if they caught a cold.

caring maid nanaki

“I have brought towels.”

use them well~

This took approximately two seconds. Lightning Nanaki.

…way to fast

I quickly distributed the towels in the order of my master, Meia-sama and then Fio-san. I had thought of drawing hot water in the large bath, but nanakisonar picked up something. Although it is weak, electricity flows through people. Nanakisonar is sensitive and can capture that. Even if it is that of head butler Ridolf.

ping ping~

He probably began preparations at the same time the duel began. As expected of the head butler, not just for show. Then Nanaki shall prepare warm black tea. Nanaki is a special human, even if the opponent is the head butler, I must not fall behind. Watashi wa(I am) master maid.

(T/N: She said that part in english, so I put it in japanese :P)

“Then you have no objections to Nanaki’s continued employment? Meia.”

“Stop asking the obvious. I lost the duel.”

duels are best decision makers

Meia-sama slung the tower over her shoulder and returned to the estate in a  bad mood. Now, this is troubling. Nanaki wants to get along well with Meia-sama. But if I speak to her in this current situation, it seems like it would have the reverse effect. Friend, could you lend Nanaki your wisdom?

wisdom of the godss

What? No interest in humans? You keep saying that. Even though you get along well with Nanaki, why are other humans no good. Even thought we were establishing peace together just now, you should fix your moodiness.

….not helpful



It’s Nanaki.

and Ilveng

“It’s alright. And good job.”

“Very kind of you.”

manners are toughy

Master smiled softly as he followed after Meia-sama. Could it be that Nanaki had a troubled expression? Or maybe master is sharp? In any case, master has said to leave it to him, if he says that Nanaki just needs to believe. A bow to that back.


Aren’t siblings really beautiful things, Friend?

Nanaki is a single child though…?



Could it be.


When I looked after bowing to master’s back, Fio-san had called out to me. The bridge of friendship is descending. Could this be the divine protection of master? What a blessing. Maybe the smile strategy earlier also had some effect. In the end Nanaki had not  made an attack.

defense is best offense

Completely victorious nanakismile. Everyone around the world, it’s Nanaki.

I’m running out of responses to that one phrase….already!?

“Nice to meet you, my name is Nanaki.”

hecate here~

I had met her once that day on the roof, but we haven’t yet greeted formally. First impressions are important. No, in this case it is second impressions. In that case I should respond with a smile here. Nanaki would like to get along.

friend request sent

“I am Fi, Fio Laygen. Err……is Nanaki-sama……”

awaiting response

Sama add-on. With this, she is probably certain. Please, ask away. Nanaki has prepared to answer that. If necessary I shall explain everything. And then to remain at master’s side, I am prepared to accept any words you throw at me.

reply received

“………….actually nevermind!”


Fio-san ran to the estate with amazing vigour.


Only Nanaki’s smile was left.



For now I accomplished my initial objective and brought the warm black tea. Of course it is of a suitable temperature. Head butler Ridolf has recently admitted Nanaki’s growth and has entrusted the preparation of the tea to Nanaki more. Now if I could get cooking to be entrusted to me, Nanaki would be able to be promoted to legend maid.


“How irritating! If you have something to say hurry up and say it!”

“How about entering the bath before you catch a cold.”

“Thanks for your concern. If that’s all you had to say, would you get out?”




I immediately shut the opened door before I was noticed. And then to be able to choose a good time to enter, I opened it again a little. Nanaki would probably only be a hindrance to master if she was there. I must ascertain the timing to enter cautiously. Silent Nanaki.

stealthy nanaki

The result of the duel might have caused a slight fraying of the bond between siblings. From Meia-sama’ point of view, it was probably a duel she was never supposed to lose.

Meia is a genius after all

Even if duels are special among nobles, she might not be able to control her emotions. In order to regain control, she probably requires a little more time. Nanaki thinks that the mortifying feeling after losing is natural. Nobody can be perfect.

everybody loses at some point

Even this Nanaki is working hard to be perfect. But as expected there are things that cannot be achieved. Friend, as a god do you think that you are a perfect existence? If that is so, what did you do to be able to call yourself perfect? I want you to teach Nanaki.

grant nanaki enlightenment

Friend gave me a thumbsup with a smile. I don’t really get it.

(T/N: random fact~ the kanji for perfect also spells out “absolute wall”~ totally unrelated)

“As expected you really can’t accept it.”

“It doesn’t matter if I accept it. I lost the duel.”

“It’s fine to say your true thoughts.”


don’t hold it in.

I heard a faint sobbing sound.

…ok wasnt expecting that.

“I didn’t say anything wrong……I wasn’t wrong!! Even though I was right!! Why did I lose……”

“Meia is right. A noble should be like that.”

“Then why!? Even though I was right why……!!”


That is because you are weak.

….no nanaki shush

That day Silver told me. That this heart is tainted. Even though the weak conceding should be the inevitable result of paths that cannot be yielded colliding. Then what do you want me to do. Is it fine for the strong to abandon their pride and yield their path? Then the weak will advance. But what will become of the strong.


Isn’t it because it is a path that cannot be walked together that they fight? At any rate, the one with power has the advantage. Be it talent or effort, each person bears it in various forms. They compete and the superior one is decided. Is that not human history?

…it’s a …unique view

Nanaki is probably deviated.


“It is probably because I am wrong.”

who said right always wins?

Yes. And so in master.

birds of a feather flock together

“Sorry for being a bad brother.”


oniisama charm activated

Meia-sama is crying in master’s chest. Master’s hand is gently petting the head of his younger sister who won’t stop crying. Ah, this is family. I’m jealous.

Nanaki has a new one~

“Father and mother passed away……so I worked hard……——“

this is not for nanaki’s eas

I shut the door.


This is not something that is fine for me to eavesdrop. I have not seen the parents of master at the Alfred house even once. Nanaki has already made the most likely prediction. However, that truth must be heard from my master’s mouth. Beautiful sibling love is unnecessary for Nanaki.

nanaki is strong.

It’s not like I’m feeling lonely, Friend. I do feel jealous though.

Nanaki is still human.

I must not intrude on those two right now. Fortunately I have a reason for leaving this place. See, the black tea has completely gone cold. I cannot serve this to my master and his younger sister. How is it Friend. Isn’t Nanaki quite cool?

cool nanaki

Friend intentionally used lightning to spell out a word.

do I have to spell it out for you

There the obvious word was spelt out. Coo…………Wall?

Kabe. Wall.

(T/N: wall was written in english then in jap, so I did the opposite)

Fufufu, did you hear that Friend? That sound just now.

nanaki ignored it

What? You didn’t? What sound?


The gong.

the end

If it rains tomorrow, Hecate is staying under shelter in case of divine retribution lightning.
