Black eyed slave

 “I went to the east district store to buy food and sundries.”

I'm telling Mintz and Doug the story about how I bought a boy while drinking tea in the living room.

“Oh, while we're talking about this I will making soup that easy to drink.
Since the two of you can't to cook, I will borrow the kitchen ok?”

“Sorry to bother you with this, thank you Mintz.”

After that, Mintz begins preparing soup.

“I finished buying somethings that I needed in east district, but because there are still some that I need to buy I'm try to searching in the south area …..”

Compared to the eastern district security in the south area is not very good.
There are lots of bar, brothel, slave market and other shops.
Usually I won’t go to the eastern district , but the magical tool shop that sell something that I need only open in the South District.

“The Mard shop?”

“Yeah, and on the way to the shop there is a slave market open.”

“Recently, the security around that place is getting worse and worse.
I heard that even the illegal slaves are sold well there.”

I don't want to see a slave market.
I feel sorry for the slaves but I can't do anything to save them all.
So, usually, I won't stop by that place and walk quickly as I can.

“There is a cage in the corner of the slave market where the boy was in.
Our eyes meet and it seemed like he will stop breathing at any time.

I still don't know why I was interested at him that time.
Even though there are many slave in same bad condition in that place other than him, and there is not a special thing that I can see from that boy.
However, I couldn't take my eyes from him.

“Looking at his condition in the cage, it’s seems that the boys already a useless item for them, so it sells at a low price but it still can’t be sold.
And look like they are planning to dispose of him soon.”

“I want to punch them right now!!”

“Is it enough to just punching them? If me…”

I hear that somewhat Mintz mumbles something disturbing but I pretend that I don’t hear it.
I also wanted to slash and cut them down, but I also understood that it will make me caught by the police if I do such a thing there.

“When he looked up at me and I feel that his eyes it’s an eyes that already giving up everything.”

If you meet an eyes like that it can’t be helped, you must wanted to help him.”

“After I looked at that eye I couldn't distract my eyes from it.
I don't know why, but I feel like I have to protect him …
I just..
feel like that….”

I don't know why but I just couldn't abandon him at all.
My instinct kept telling me that he was mine….
He was mine to protect..
to care about…

“So that's why you bought him huh?”

“Yeah, I know that it's hypocritical.
Because even though I said I want to help him I only bought him from the slave market.
That's like I forced him to be mine.
I can't help myself…
I must do it..
I have to…”

“Isn’t that fine? Even if it was like you bought a love, but..
if you don't do it, maybe no one will save him.”

“If it's about you who didn't like slave market more than other people.
There will be many things to think about….
But well..
if it's because you bought that boy, he is no longer feel any painful experience, isn't that's alright?”

“That’s right.
It's good to be release from the status as a slave you know…”

The words from both of them were saved me.
Until now, everyone who sells slaves, buyers and those who use it are subjects of disgust – yet, now I was bought him as a slave.
Of course I had no intention to treating him as a slave, but I still couldn't forgive myself for buying him as a slave.

“You two are right.
Thank you…”

“Really…You are too serious.
You don't have to think every little think, take it easy a little.”

“Well, if you pull out as much as the branch chief, it will be something though ….”

“Did you say something?!”

“No, it's nothing sir!”

The soup that Mintz was making seems to be completed, so Mintz started cleaning and preparing to go home.

“If this soup cools down and let him drink.
I think it's difficult if his consciousness doesn't return, but please give him a drink even a little.
Please don't give him a big bite.
It will stuck in his throat and it will be dangerous.”

“Got it!”

“Really, thank you very much Mintz.
You are really helpful.”

“No no no this is nothing much.
If there’s something happen please call me immediately.
I will fly here right away.”

“Yeah of course!”

“We will call you later.”

“Then please excuse me.
Let's meet again in the guild.”

After that, Mintz going back to his home.

Let's check the boy’s condition.”


Dough and I going to the room where the boy is resting.
In the room the boy's still sleeping quietly.

“For a while, it would be better to take care of him by our own.
You and I will show our face alternately to the guild.
Is this okay for you? Well we don’t have any job that require much time right now, so I think this is the best way.”

“I understand, we must check his condition every day, so it should be the best way.
But…even if you say that you want to nurse him, isn’t it will be hard for you? Especially with that arm..”

“If you said it like that then how about your legs? Do you think how many years have passed since my arm became like this? Don’t worry, I can do most everything’s by myself.”

After heard what I said to him, Doug make a gesture as to hit me with the left arm which is not cut from the root.

“That’s right, sorry to bother you about this.”

“It's alright you know..
If I have to say, this is not other people’s affairs anymore.
We will protect this boy together okay?”

As Doug said so, he was wiping away the boys sweat floating on his forehead.
It’s probably really painful with the fever, pain expression is shown on the boy’s face.

“I will try to give the boy the soup and medicine given by Mintz.
Doug, you can take a bath first.”

I wanted see how Doug take care of the boy later even it's just once, but it doesn't have to be now.

“Okay, I will leave it to you for now.
Please call me if anything happens.”

“Got it.”

Doug heads to the bath, I warm up the soup that Mintz made, and take out the medicine.
Then, I move the things I bought today and put them in the appropriate place.
I prepare a soup, the medicine, and head towards him.

Sitting beside him while see his suffering from high fever and his painful expression, I gazes at his face.
I feel that when I look at that figure the desire for make him mine is growing so strong.

Originally, the bear tribe is strongly instinctive to protect small things and the weak ones, my desire for protect him is definitely strong, but this feeling seems to go beyond only to protect him.

His black hair, not sharp but it's a small clean nose, thin lips, I still can't see it now but his black eyes, white skin, I want to make him all for myself, under my own protection.
I don't even want to let him go, that's how deep my feeling have become.

While gazing at him, I unconsciously passing my fingers through his hair.
I couldn’t believe myself doing such a thing but once my sense is returned, I swear to myself it’s not the time for this and trying to make him drink the soup.

The soup that Mintz made is full of minced rabbit meat and some stewed vegetables that simmered nicely.
The soup is clear, has a reasonable salt control, and it tastes a little plain but it’s very delicious.

I raises his back slightly, supports it, and carries the soup with a spoon to the mouth.
I opened his mouth a little and give him a soup a little, but there was no sign of swallowing, and the soup almost flowed from the edge of his mouth.
In hurry, I wiped it with a towel, but if this continued He can’t drink the soup.

I think hard to find a way to make him drink the soup.
I try some way, but in the end I let him drink the soup via mouth to mouth.

I give a small amount of soup to his mouth while telling myself that this is for nursing the sick, this is for the sick people, for the sick people, no other objective.
(TL: Umm..
don't worry I forgive you Mr.
Bear ^^)

I open the boy s mouth a little, pour his mouth with soup and close it.
When the liquid flows to the back, the body seems to desire a water, so it swallowed nicely.

It looks so lovely that he tried so hard to swallow the liquid from my mouth.
When flowing in, the tongue of the boy and my tongue entangled a bit and it’s was a strange feeling or to be honest a pleasant feeling, but once again I told myself this is for nursing the sick.

Even if I forcibly let him drink so much from the beginning, he won’t be healthy instantly, rather it will be a burden to his body, so I give him about half the soup in the bowl and give him the medicine in the same way.
The medicine was dead bitter.
I wonder if this should be mixed with something sweet…? I will think about it next time when I make him drink the medicine again.

After seeing the boy’s condition for a while, Doug came into the room, steaming come from his body because he just gets out from the bath.

the bath feel so good.
Wow, looks like the boy's complexion is getting better.”

“It's because I give him a soup, medicine, and water.”

“Ah, I see I see.
But to be able to give him the soup even though he not conscious.
What did you do?”

I feed him mouth to mouth..”

Say it one more time.”

I said I feed him mouth to mouth.”

“……Well, that’s can't be helped! Because he's not conscious! Side benefit…
side benefit!”

I want to know what he means by side benefit, but I will let it go for now.

“I will look after the boy, so you should take a bath this time.
Let’s eat together when you done, then let's go to bed.”

“I understand, please look after him.”

“Got it!”

#See u again in chapter 4! ^^
