[English-only]

159.14 - 160.1
屋敷を見れば、そこでの程度の戦闘が行われたのか、テッドはうまく逃げおおせたのかが判断できるかもしれないと思ったからだ。
He thought that if he took a look at the mansion he might be able to deduce how the battle went and if Ted had been able to escape.

160.2
昼食を済ませ後、ティルはグレミオとクレオの目を盗んで根を取った。
After lunch was over, Tir grabbed his staff when Gremio and Cleo weren’t looking.

160.3
階下に降り、周囲の注意を引かないようにゆっくりとした動作で玄関へ向かう。
He went down to the second floor, and moving slowly so as not to attract any attention, headed for the exit.

160.4
そしてお茶色のペンキで塗られた扉のノブに、手をかけた時。
Just as he grabbed the light-brown door’s doorknob

160.5
「テ、ティルぼっちゃん!どこに行くんです?!」 背後に響いたマリーの声に、思わずティルは走りだした。
Marie’s voice called out behind him, “Y-young master Tir! Where are you going?!” He took off running without even another thought.

160.6
理由を話しても、引き留められるに決まっているから。
Even if he told her what he was up to, there’s no way she’d let him go.

160.7
しかし玄関を出た時、ティルは足を止めざるを得なかった。
Once he got out the door, he couldn’t put the brakes on

160.8
軒下にいた何者かに、思い切りぶつかってしまったのだ。
and he smacked right into someone just outside.

160.9
「い、いててて!いきなりぶつかりやがて、このチビすけがあ!」
“Ouch! Watch where yer goin’, ya little pipsqueak!”

160.10
身体を起しながら罵る男を見て、ティルは唖然とした。
Tir picked himself up off the ground, staring in stunned surprise at the cursing fellow.

160.11
その肩には近衛隊部隊長の肩章が光り、背後には五人の兵士が立ちティルを睨んでいた。
The epaulettes marking a commanding officer of the imperial guard gleamed on his shoulders and five soldiers stood behind him, scowling at Tir.

160.12
「す、すいません!」
“S-sorry, sir!”

160.13
咄嗟にティルは下を向き、急いでその横をすり抜けようとした。
He bowed right away and quickly slipped by them,

160.14
顔を見られてはまずい、そう思っての行動だった。
knowing how bad it would be to let his face be seen.

161.1
「待たんか、こら!」 兵の一人が腕をつかみ、無理やりティルを引き留めた。
“Hey, you!” One of the soldiers grabbed Tir’s arm and held him in place.  “Hold on a minute, will ya!”

161.2
同時に五人の兵がティルを取り囲む。
The five guards surrounded Tir.

161.3
「こっちはなあ、休みだってのにかり出されて徹夜で反逆者の捜索にあたってたんだ。
“We been up all night huntin’ for traitors and just came here for a bit of  a break

161.4
やっと一息つけるかって時に、このガキめ!」
to catch our breath and all when you come runnin’ out, brat!”

161.5
ティルはますます顔が上げられなくなった。
Tir couldn’t very well keep looking down forever.

161.6
傲慢な近衛隊の言葉に怒ることもできず、この場を逃れるためにただ「すいません」と謝るしかなかった。
nor could he get angry at the insolent guard’s words, no; apologizing was his only hope of escape.

161.7
そうしているうちにも、兵の一人がティルの顔を覗き込む。
While he apologized, one of the soldiers peered at Tir.

161.8
「ちょっとまって…。こいつ、この顔、どこかで見たことあるような…」
“Wait a minute… feel like I’ve seen your face somewhere before…”

161.9
「どれ、ふむ…。そう言えば、おたずね者のガキの顔って、確かこんな…」部隊長が立ち上がり、言った直後。
“Where, though? Hmm… ah, that’s it. You look like that wanted brat.”Just as the commanding officer was getting started,

161.10
「ぼっちゃん!」宿の奥からグレミオの声が響いた。
Gremio’s cry of “Young master!” came from within the inn.

161.11
騒ぎを聞きつけ、二人が屋根裏部屋から降りてきたのだ。
From the sound of it, he and Cleo had come down from the attic.

161.12
「お前ら、どういうつもりだ!」
“Just what are you planning to do?!”

161.13
クレオが玄関を飛び出し兵との間に割って入ろうとしたが、ティルが後ろに回した手で合図しそれを止める。
Cleo sprang from the entrance and began forcing her way through the guards, but Tir secretly signaled her behind his back and she stopped.

161.14
ここで騒ぎを起せば、街の近衛兵がこぞって押し掛けてくるに違いない。
There was no doubt that all the town’s imperial guard soldiers would come running if they raised a fuss here.

161.15
「ぼっちゃん、だと?」部隊長がティルの顔を見ようと腰をかがめた。
The commanding officer bent at the waist and took a good look at Tir’s face. “Young master, did he say?”

161.16
「怪しいな。確かマクドール家のガキも、居候にそんな風に呼ばれてたと聞いているぞ。
“Now that’s mighty strange. Seems we just caught the McDohl brat skipping out on his bill, boys!

161.17 - 162.1
それに黒い根を持っているともな。顔を上げろ!」
You’re even carryin’ that black staff. Raise your head!”

162.2
ティルはうつむいたままだ。
Tir kept his head down.

162.3
「上げろと言っているのがわからんか!」叫びながら部隊長は、すらりと剣を抜き放った。
“You deaf or somethin’?!” he shouted and drew his sword from its sheath in one clean sweep.

162.4
そして刃を上に向けティルの顔の下に持ってくると、ゆっきりと刀身を上げた。
he raised his sword, bringing it right under Tir’s chin and slowly brought it upward.

162.5
「さあ、これでどうだ。上げんと、この刃が鼻をふたつに割るぞ」
“How about this? Look up or lose your nose.”

162.6
「くっ…」
“Gh…”

162.7
たが、ここで顔を上げるわけにはーーティルが歯がみしながら、迫る刃をじっと見つめるしかなかった。
But Tir gritted his teeth and stared down at the sword. He wouldn’t lift his head.

162.8
「いい加減にしないか!」
“You don’t know when to give up, kid!”

162.9
ついにクレオが飛刀を抜く。
In the end, Cleo drew her daggers

162.10
グレミオも斧を握り玄関を出る。
and Gremio came out too, axe swinging.

162.11
兵士たちも剣の柄に手をかけた。そして光る刃がティルの鼻先に達した時。
The soldiers’ hands went to their sword hilts. And when the gleaming sword was at the tip of Tir’s nose…

162.12 - 162.13
「はいはい、そこまでにしときなよ帝国のお偉いさん。そっちのネーチャンも刀をしまいな」ティルの背後に、軽い調子の声が響いた。
“All right, bigshot, that’s far enough”, rumbled a deep voice behind him. “And you can stow the knives, sis.”

162.14
皆が驚いて視線を移すと、玄関の脇に寄りかかった男がニャニャと薄笑いを浮かべてこちらを見ていた。
Everyone looked to the source in surprise and found a man leaning against the doorframe, watching them with a faint smile playing about his lips.

162.15
いつ切ったのかもわからない、ぼさぼさの髪に無精髭。
He was unkempt, had a five o’clock shadow, and looked in need of a haircut.

162.16
鞣した革服の袖口から太い二腕をのぞかせ、腰には太い体験を提げている。
Two huge arms bulged out of his leather tanned leather vest and his torso was thick as a tree trunk.
