From 1 month of training, my ability is comparable to the Knights.
“The brave Ars, survived the painful training and grow in alarming rate. ”
” I give you this armor. From now on I hope it could help you. ”
The king bestow me a mithril armor and sword. Amazing. Even for adventurer, there is only a small number of mithril. The price of this probably 100 times my life income.
” I better work hard to meet everyone expectations. ”
I mark my promise with a heroish word.
” Today you’re allowed to go back to the village and rest. ”
Finally after one month I returned.
” Hey, you’re back! ”
” The pride of the village! ”
” I always know you’re designated for something big. ”
I was welcomed by food and drinks. They even made a bonfire in the middle of the village square. Although living in the palace was good, I missed my days in the village.
Everyone, one month ago was looking at me like a garbage. Hypocrite.
” Oh Ars is back. ” it was the mayor.
” Mayor isn’t it time to harvest? ”
Since the demon invasion, cultivation is hard. We even have to pay higher tax for failing harvest.
” Don’t worry. Because you’re the hero, our village was exempted from tax for 10 years. ”
” Huh? ”
It must be the true meaning of him rubbing his hand before. He made a negotiations with the knight.
” Ars? ”
Pigna come and bring a lot of food inside her tray.
“So much, eveb a horse couldn’t eat it all. ”
” It’s for grandpa. ”
After that she quickly leave. Hmm… There is something strange..
After that I tell about my one month of training. Show some magic. Everyone eyes is shining hearing my story. I ate Mom cooking and it was delicious. I cried involuntarily.
At night I head out to a small hill. My favorite place. From here I could see the whole village. From such a tiny village, I am going to be the hero.
Suddenly my hands are trembling.
No way? I’m scared?
I practiced sword and magic. Yet, why? Why?
“I am a hero! No! I am a farmer! Don’t fight the demon. ”
Argh. I hit my head against the rock in vicinity.
Hit it again and again.
However a rock couldn’t even scratch my hero body.
” Should I ran away? Should I quit as a hero? ”
The moonlight shone and fall on a figure.
” Pigna? ”
” I was hearing someone shouting. I didn’t mean to. ”
” Don’t worry. I come here to see you. Whenever you have a gloomy expression you always come here. ”
” Will you quit being a hero? If you quit who will fight the demon? ”
” It’s…. You knoe, there used to be a hero that defeat the demon lord. Maybe a new one will appear. ”
” when the demon lord is defeated or when you die? ”
” Really I wonder why did I get chosen. ”
” You’re a lazy person, a coward, how can you be the hero? ”
” Hey, aren’t you saying mean things? ”
” Why Ars is the hero? ”
Pigna is crying and hugged me.
” Pi-Pigna? ”
” Ars just quit. Ran away. Why should you carried the burden? ”
” But if I escape.. The demon. ”
” It’s just that we will be invaded by demon. ”
” It will be dangerous. Even this village will be attacked. ”
Aaah. Finally I realized. This one month I traioto protect this village. My home, Mom, Dad, Pigna.
” Don’t worry. I made my decision. I will defeat the demon. ”
” But.. You said.. ”
” I want to protect the village. I want to protect you. ”
” me? ”
” Pigna? ”
” Listen to me. You have yo come back alive. ”
” Understood. Who am I? I’m Ars the hero. ”
Finally Pigna gives me a smile.
” Hey Ars… ”
” What is it? ”
Pigna began to squirm and her face turned red.
” If you’re okay with it, I’m willing to be your concubine. ”
It was sending me a shock.
” Where did you get the idea to be my concubine? ”
” Because once you defeat the demon lord, you will be married to the princess in the palace. ”
” You’re thinking too much. All the princess in our country is married. ”
To be exact, there is still one unmarried. But she was 5 years old. It is a crime to put your hands on her.
Hey.. Does it mean..
” Are you proposing just now? ”
” Ah.. That.. ”
Pigna face is like a boiled octopus.
” So, you are in a bad mood because I might marry a princess? ”
I don’t have problems because she looked so cute. I love her more and more.
” O-of course not. I just want to bear your child. Oh no. What am I saying? Just quickly defeat the demon Ars. ”
” Ah.. What.. Ah.. ”
Pigna send me strong uppercut. I was blown directly into the distant night sky. To be able to send me away with a blow, the hero. I shall be careful around her.
However with this it’s settled.
I will defeat the demon, come back alive and marry Pigna!
