An Inumimi Maid

I was convinced at that moment.

Misha seriously dislike dogs…

Because, the battle was over in 20 seconds.

[Eat this! Neko Punch!]

[Eh?! Neko—. Punch…?!]

Looking where the bandits were, I saw that bandit with the bobtail braid being assaulted by a cat.

Although that woman seemed relatively strong, she is still not a match for Misha, and she fell. Similarly, all her subordinates got knock down by a single neko punch.


I tied up all the unconscious beastkin bandit.

Our mission is finished with this.

The women woke up shortly after I tied them up.

[I didn’t expect that the cat to be so extraordinary….]

[That’s right! It’s unfortunate for you.]

Misha then used transformation magic to change into her beastkin form.

The woman has a face which seemed to say [I got tricked].

[…It seems that the person over there is also a beastkin. Well…this is fine. My name is Reina.  I’m the leader of this group.]

The beastkin woman called Reina looked calm and did not give an impression of someone under arrested.

Although it seemed weird to be doing a self-introduction judging by our current situation, we still introduce ourselves to her.


[Keiji and Misha, I have a favour to ask you. You are the only one I could ask so please listen to my request.]

[What is it?]

Reina lowered her head.

[Because I’m the leader of this group, I’m the only person with a bounty on their head. So…please release the other 3 people. Of course, I will instruct them to stop being bandits. They can’t disobey my instructions, so if it is possible….]

She is pleading with us to give her subordinates a chance.

[Furthermore, I was the one behind the plan to rob from the rich. These fellows did nothing. So, I I’m begging you to let them go….]

[…You have a big heart for just a dog.]

Misha expression also became softer.

[Master, I think that she is not lying. Should we let them off?]

I ponder for a moment.

…Then, I came up with a suggestion.

[Hey, Reina? Did anyone see your face?]

[I kept my face hidden during the work, so no one should be able to recognize us.]

It seemed that we would be able to hide them from the law.

[I understand you situation, so let’s burn your current base.]

[Why would you want to do such a thing?! I gave all the stolen goods to the orphanage, so there is nothing valuable remaining!]

[This is because I plan to put on a show where the bandits got burned along with their base!]


Reina voiced overlapped with Misha.

[You guys can find a new life. Of course, I will definitely hunt you down again if you commit a crime again.]

Reina expression suddenly looked stiffed.

Fortunately, Misha seemed to understand my intention.

[It seemed that your morals are not bad, so I will give you a chance.]

[Well, that’s how it is.]

She put the interest of her subordinate before her own, so there should not be any problems.

Furthermore, even if they commit any crime near the capital again, Misha had memorized their smell so they would be caught easily.

[Is this…. Is this really alright with you…?]

It seemed, that Reina could not understand why we would do such a thing.

[My Master, is this type of person.]

Misha hugged me tightly.

It seemed that Reina finally understood our intention and tears started flowing freely.

[Keijiii, Miishaa… I will definitely…definitely repay you…]

[The case is resolved with this.]

Misha told me and confirmed.

[I will keep a lookout for any news of bandits near the capital. If you return to being bandits and betray Master, I will never forgive you.]

[That’s right. I will not forgive you if that happens.]

The best method to know if they turn over a new leaf is to supervisor them directly.

At the conclusion of this case, it seemed that it really became us [supervising].


Three days have passed.

Reina came over to our house.

[Why are you here…?]

Well, it is easy to find our residence by investigating using my name.

Or rather, I am curious about her attire.

This is your so-called maid outfit. [1]



[I was thinking of how I could repay the kindness of master and Boss. After thinking about it seriously, I believe the best way is to take care of your daily needs.]

She is really thinking out of the box with this idea.

Unexpectedly, this is not a bad idea.

First of all, we could supervise her if she stays with us, so she would not be able to commit any crimes.

Furthermore, this house is too big and since Misha refused to do any chores, she could lighten my workload.

However, it appears that Misha showed a face of disgust.

[Hey. You. This is our love nest. It is troubling if you suddenly appear–.]

[Reina, please take care of us.]

I bowed to her.

[H-Hey! M-ma-master?! W-why!?]

[It is true that you contributed the most during dungeon exploration so it is fair for me to be the house husband. However, it is also true that this house is too big and it’s tiring for me to take care. We can concentrate of the dungeon if there is someone taking care of the house.]

[I-I…. I….understand nya….]

Misha accepted and Reina started working as our live-in maid.


Initially, Misha declared that [No matter what, an ex-bandit would not make a good maid]. Fortunately, Reina is extremely serious and did the housework properly.

Also, because she had always taken care of her subordinates, her cooking skill is also good.

[…Just why…? Even though we used the same ingredients, this soup became so much more delicious….]

Conversely, I became shocked at the taste of the soup.

[Through many trials and error I was able to find the most delicious way to bring out the flavor. In addition, it is love master. I wanted to make delicious food for master and Boss.]

Reina smiled while wearing her apron.

On the other hand, Misha face is turning blue.

She is mumbling something.

[If this goes on, Master will be stolen….]

Well, who told you to slack off in the house.


Then, two days later.

I got woken up by Misha which leads to my current situation.

[Fr… Fr-from today on, I will be in charge of breakfast… W-well, please hurry up and eat….]

Although I felt thankful for her service, I could not help but also feel a hint of unease.


…Has Misha ever cooked?


[1] The style that was shown that Reina wears wouldn’t be considered a maid uniform. Rather, the technical term would be a derivative French Maid instead, the one that’s prevalent in many cosplay cafes and costume roleplays. This is a conservative version since the emphasis is only on the chest without any of the frills and without the short cut skirt.

A real maid uniform of this era…does not actually exist. What they used were garments that made them look prim and proper, with or without an apron (though it does help block the mess). At most the skin you would see is just to the level of the collarbone, perhaps lower to the sternum but nothing more.

No real self-respecting noble or any person with status would hire someone who wears garments that accents the bust. Then again, this IS an isekai where authors have free reign and can do whatever they want.
