Long, long ago, in an era when mankind was divided by conflict into West and East, there lived a very kind girl in a certain town.

The girl eagerly treated those wounded in battle or ravaged by disease, gaining the admiration of everyone in town... Except for the ruling lord, who cared little for the girl who nursed enemy mercenaries back to health.

One day, the lord summoned a guardian knight. 'Have that pesky maiden slaughtered!' The lord had enough. He wanted the girl to be eliminated.

The girl lived alone in a house on the cliff above the sea. The guardian knight headed toward the house to carry out the deed.

No one would suspect a thing. He hid in the forest near the house and waited.

That night, the girl emerged from the house to draw water from the well. As the knight left his hiding spot, he heard a howl. A white wolf had appeared before him.

The white wolf stared at the knight with red eyes. It was as if it was there to protect the girl. The knight promptly tried to escape, but his feet slipped. He then tumbled down the cliff.

When he came to, he found himself on a simple bed. Idly looking around, he saw the girl standing there in the kitchen. Noticing the bandages carefully wrapped around his body, he realized that the girl had saved him.

'I am relieved you woke up.' As the knight was treated to warm soup, he felt sorry for the girl. He told her his lord commanded him to kill her. The girl was a little surprised when she heard that, but soon smiled as though unfazed.

'Even still, I cannot just look away when a life granted by the Goddess is in danger.'

The knight was moved by these words. For her to be so kind towards someone who might have slaughtered her...she must be a daughter of the Goddess. And he would have done it were it not for that white wolf. The thought brought a chill down his spine. The white wolf must be a servant of the Goddess, ordered to protect Her daughter.

A few days later, when his body was fully healed, he thanked the girl, and it was now time to go back. He began to consider how he might convince his lord to change his mind.

The girl joined him on his way to town to check upon her other patients.

The knight pondered more. He asked the opinion of the girl. She did not seem to care about being disliked by people.

As they approached the town, they noticed it was dyed red like a sunset.

But it was still noon... Finding it strange, the girl and knight ventured forth to find out what happened. What they found was frightening.

The town was red not by sunset, but by the flames of war.










騎士が目を覚ましたのは、簡素な作りのベッドの上でした。ぼんやりと辺りを見回すと、台所にあの娘が立っているのが見えます。次に体に丁寧に巻かれた包帯を見て、娘が助けてくれたことに気づきます。 「よかった、目を覚ましたんですね」


娘はそれを聞くと少し驚いた様子でしたが、すぐに何ごともなかったかのように微笑みます。 「それでも、女神さまに与えられた命が失われるのをただ見ていることはできないのです」
