    Luise looked at the horse. "Can you carry two knocked out people?
    The horse simply neighed.
    "I'll take that as a yes," Luise said flatly.

  • Chapter 24: Luise reject's Saito's permission to visit a brothel:
    "Fine," Luise said with a gruff nod. "But I'm cutting down your whorehouse visits from 'only in extreme circumstances' to 'absolutely never'."
    Saito blinked at those words, and looked in shock at Luise. "L-Luis! Let's talk about this!"
    "No," Luise gruffly said. "Real men don't get laid in whorehouses. Real men act like knights and find a pretty damsel to court, and you will do the same!"
    "B-But at least once in my life-come on! Have mercy!"
  • Chapter 26: Saito's honest introduction.
    Saito: "My name is Saito Hiraga. I'm an everyday Japanese high school student who was summoned here as Luis' familiar. I'm trying to find my way back home. I like games, dislike sports and my dream is to enter a whorehouse and go back home to boast about it."

This is the last straw! Count Mott can keep his desires in his pants, all the gold he pays us isn't worth this shit!"
