9 – Get away from her(3)
“Don’t listen to what that strange person says.”
From noble mtl dot com
The bully did not back down despite the blatant disregard.
Suddenly she put her arms on our table and started to fuss at Erina.
“Think carefully. If you come to our party, you can still make some money. It gives you a chance.”
Still, she was staring at me as if the man was invisible.
The bully persistently spit next to Erina and started talking to her.
“By the way, I think I’ll have to move a little busier starting tomorrow.”
“If you want, I’ll put the man next to me too. If not, I’ll throw it away right away.”
“For now, let’s get a good rest today. Tomorrow is to be done.”
“Hey there, girl.”
The atmosphere of the inn has changed. Even the people around him gradually turn their heads to see if they have read Living and begin to pretend they don’t know.
The bad boy was staring at us with a smile on his face.
With the sound of bang, the glass fell over.
At the same time, the plate broke and there was a commotion.
“Isn’t it polite to listen to something nice?”
I didn’t feel threatened at all by seeing such behavior.
Rather, no matter how much I look at it, I am convinced that it is below me.
“I don’t want to hear anything from you.”
Erina doesn’t even blink her eyes. The man turned his gaze to me.
Unlike Erina, she has a relaxed expression in front of me.
“If you are not confident, consider yourself in moderation. You just go out and die.”
“Because it’s better for a girl to hide under her skirt than to die.”
“If you don’t like that, you better stop being an adventurer and look for something else…?!”
She clenched her fist as it was.
The man fell to the floor, unable to speak.
The table is knocked over and there is a roar in the inn.
The man looks at me with a puzzled expression.
As soon as I understood the situation, my face was wrinkled.
“This… You motherf*cker…?!”
Before I even got up, I kicked the man in the face.
I fell to the floor with a thump. He clenched his fist in the man’s face.
“Contrary to how it looks, you are weak.”
To be honest, I didn’t think it would be this weak.
It’s only enough to throw a fist in a fist, but you go around arguing with other people. I have to admit the guts.
The large size was useless for anything in the first place.
At best, what does weight have to do with the subject that is thrown around my feet?
I drove the man to the corner of the inn and trampled on him.
There was silence around.
People around me just watched, confused.
The man is struggling to get up.
Every time I hit him in the face, he fell asleep again.
The male colleague could not stop me in the same way.
No one even dared to approach and help.
Unfortunately, the owner of the inn tried to step forward, but he was only swayed by my momentum.
No sound is heard in the inn.
Only the terrible sound that comes out every time a man is trampled on is resounding.
The man does not move because he has already lost his mind. He collapsed, drooping on his floor.
I feel a little relieved now.
To be honest, I was just about to skip it at first.
However, if you stay still, the number of happy eyes will continue to increase.
And I came up with a way to take advantage of this opportunity.
So I kept my mouth shut.
I deliberately let the man flutter his mouth.
And the moment Erina was about to step out, I blew up the man first.
‘Only for low-level quests.’
In the beginning, the NPC in the beginning couldn’t be strong. It’s only level 1 or 2 at most.
Just looking at it, it was clear that he was a bully who barely managed to catch a goblin or a slime, and squealed as an adventurer.
Looking a little surprised at my appearance.
Perhaps if I hadn’t, Erina would have run into the man.
If it were, the man wouldn’t have ended up fainting.
I’ll never know that man for the rest of my life. It’s like I saved his life.
“Did you see it?”
“If I wasn’t strong.”
Even if that man had an argument, he wouldn’t have done anything. As he continues to be ignored, he must live.
“In the future, this will happen countless times.”
“I can protect you!”
I frowned on purpose. When she deliberately put on an angry expression, Erina was startled and bit her mouth with an anxious look.
“I have no intention of being a buffer or a healer.”
He sat back down. Focused on the remaining wild boar meat.
When I felt the gazes around me, I left only one word.
“What are you doing? Everyone sit down.”
My words change the mood. Someone suddenly avoids my gaze. A person who looks at a fallen man and kicks his tongue. There were people who looked at them with unexpected eyes.
“Okay. There are no injuries.”
He dismissed Erina’s anxious gaze and continued her meal.
Erina sat down with a depressed expression.
She quietly took her fork and continued her meal.
Unlike before, he cannot enjoy eating his favorite roasted wild boar and has a confused expression.
I was watching them all.
‘Now you must be alert.’
It is difficult in many ways if you look low or comfy in this world.
Erina won’t be able to interrupt my opinion like I just did.
It doesn’t make sense in the first place. Why don’t you use a buffer or healer to protect yourself on purpose? Wasn’t there laughter from those around you?
‘There are no people who laughed like before.’
There were no more eyes ignoring me. It’s unique in many ways.
Suddenly, a colleague in the seat next to her quietly went out with the man who had collapsed.
The frozen atmosphere gradually returned to its place.
The inn’s food was quite edible.
This is my first time eating wild boar, but I emptied the plate.
Unlike me, Erina left her food with an uncomfortable look.
Since she came to the capital, she waved her hand in front of the plate that was left over for the first proper meal she ate.
“Did you eat it all? Then let’s get up.”
“Yes? Where are you going?”
“I want to go to the commissioning station. Shall we go together?”
If you want to live as an adventurer in the future, it would be better to familiarize yourself with the requesting office in advance.
This is the place where I went back and forth dozens of times while playing games.
Erina immediately stood up at my words.
It is said that Erina did her calculations in advance. Thanks to her
She was able to ignore the innkeeper who looked at her with a dreadful look.
“Let’s get out of here quickly.”
There’s no way you’re looking at someone else’s shop. I didn’t do anything wrong.
It felt good though. This event gave me some confidence.
Even if it’s level 8, it’s not a low number at all.
I’ve killed dozens of monsters while coming to the capital so far.
It was worthwhile to accumulate experience points like that.
At least there will be no fights or pickpockets on the street.
‘In this quest, let’s go up to level 10 and get a class.’
I opened the door of the inn with a smooth plan.
When I came out, a cold wind blew.
The sun had set and a dark moon hung in the sky.
The tension in my body was relieved, perhaps because I was out of the stuffy atmosphere.
Erina, who was following, took a deep breath and took a deep breath.
“Are you here? Then let’s go.”
“Wait a minute.”
Suddenly, Erina grabbed my arm.
Looking back at her sudden action, there was Erina smiling forcibly.
“I have something to say. Would it be okay…?”
If you ask me with that look, no, she said, isn’t it?
“Okay. Let’s walk for a while.”
I walked the streets for a while. After arriving in the capital, I admired the surroundings for the first time.
After a while, a huge fountain appeared in front of us.
The fountain you see often in games. Located in the very center of the capital, it was often used to find the way.
“There are things like this in the capital. I don’t know what the principle is, but it’s cool.”
Contrary to me, Erina, who lived in her countryside, seems to be the first to see her fountain. Erina, who stared blankly at her stream of water, muttered with her mouth open.
“That’s right. That’s great.”
As she stared blankly at her fountain, smirking moderately, Erina noticed that Erina was pulling my collar.
The conversation was interrupted for a while. A stream of water was passing in front of us.
The sound of a fountain on the street at night awakened a mystical sense.
Quietly waited for her to speak to her.
Fortunately, it didn’t take long before Erina opened her mouth.
“I have one thing to tell you.”
She came slowly and took my hand.
She bowed her head and gently stroked the back of her hand.
“Actually, I have the protection of a goddess.”
This is a fact you already know. But I never thought you’d tell me that now.
I didn’t get annoyed when I saw the goddess’s imprint for nothing.
Except for the ability to kill the Demon King, all kinds of penalties follow.
The state compels sacrifices and people have endless expectations.
Some assassination groups even target those with protection.
To let the goddess know that she is there means that she trusts the other person very much.
“I came here to subdue the Demon King.”
The demon that burned their village, the demon king’s army that killed important people. To avenge her, Erina went to the capital alone.
Erina is such a being. She was born to kill the Demon King, and she is the main character.
“It is impossible for me to subdue the Demon King alone. I need your help.”
Definitely, it would be difficult to subdue the Demon Lord even with Erina alone.
Moreover, in the second round, you have to face a stronger monster than before.
“Can you continue to be with me until I kill the Demon King?”
I didn’t even have to answer. From the beginning, even now, they are almost like colleagues, aren’t they?
But looking back, she never gave Erina a definite answer. Did that make her anxious?
“Okay. She will be your companion.”
“That’s not enough.”
Erina was not convinced by my answer. The question was repeated several times.
“Can you really trust me?”
“Can you help me no matter what?”
“I will help you if possible.”
“No matter what happens, please be by my side. Please.”
Erina asked me for an answer to the extent that I thought it was too much.
As she listens to her without hesitation, a smile returns to her face as she becomes a little relieved.
But she thought to herself.
‘After all, you’re only lying until the end.’
How can I trust you, who deceives me and hides the truth?
On the other hand, there was something I wanted to ask.
“Why are you so desperate?”
From noble mtl dot com
This is a bit of a silly question. But there were no words to express my feelings more than this.
Why are you trying to protect me? Are you trying to kill the Demon King? Are you lying to me
Erina smiled broadly without thinking at all.
“I want to make the best ending.”
