Vice Captain Verivela’s face looked extremely tired.

He was also a little out of breath.

Perhaps he was looking for Captain Argud in order to stop him?

If that was the case, I somehow felt guilty.

He laughed bitterly; perhaps he noticed me looking glum.


“It’s just the usual thing.
He acts recklessly and I stop him.
Because the other guys don’t want to do it.”


“Why do you say it like I’m always acting recklessly?”


“Please get it through your head.”


Captain Argud frowned at Vice Commander Verivela’s words.

They have a somewhat a warm relationship.


“Ah, I know, Ivy.
I’ll treat you to a meal as an apology.”


“Eh! You don’t have to do that.
Just please don’t talk about me too much.”


“Ah~, about that…”


Captain Argud looked everywhere but here awkwardly.




“Please tell the truth at once.”


“Sorry! I have told all of my comrades about you.”


“…So it is too late?”


“Ahahaha…my bad.”


“Sorry, I didn’t expect him to tell everyone.”


“I’m very sorry.”


Captain Argud lightly bowed while scratching his head.

It wasn’t like he had ill intention towards me.

On the contrary, he tried to help me.

I thought that was the case…but I seemed to lose all the strength in my body.


“It’s alright.
You are just concerned about me.”


“Then, I’ll treat you as an apology.”




“This village has a specialty, have you ever eaten it?”


“Specialty? No, I haven’t?”


“Grilled Nonoshi on skewers.
Let’s eat a lot!”




It’s decided now?

He grabbed my hand and we walked leisurely towards the square.

His grip on my hand was loose and we walked slowly after what had happened before.

However, he seemed to be determined to treat me to a meal.

I glanced at Vice Captain Verivela who followed behind us.


“Just let him treat you.
Nonoshi is delicious, you know.”


He wasn’t going to stop Captain Argud, it seems.

I was certainly curious about it.

I only ate dried meat or roasted field mice sprinkled with salt during my journey.


“I’m looking forward to it.”


Listening to my words, Captain Argud smiled widely and patted my head.

I was a little surprised.

How long has it been since someone patted my head the last time?

…I couldn’t remember.


“What’s wrong?”


“No, I’m kind of hungry…”


Vice Captain Verivela asked me when he saw my expression.

I got a little sentimental.

It’s a past I’ve thrown away.

When we arrived at a street lined with stalls, delicious food aroma built my appetite.

I have never visited a place like this until just now.

Captain Argud went straight to one of the stalls.




“If it isn’t Captain Argud…your illegitimate child?”


“Hahaha, he’s cute, right.”


“Eh? Huh? Eh?”


Illegitimate child?



“Haa, I just told you not to cause trouble for the kid.”


“Oh, sorry.
This is Ivy, an adventurer.”


“Um, nice to meet you.”


“This is Tegra, the madam of this grilled Nonoshi skewers’ stall.”


“What a cute adventurer.”


“Madam, please give me 10 skewers.”


“Okey dokey.”


I saw Madam Tegra set the skewered Nonoshi on a net and grilled them.

…They’re huge.


“They are so huge.”


“Are they? You can eat 10 of them, right?”


“Ah! It’s impossible.
I can’t.”


“…Impossible? Then how many can you eat?”




I looked at the Nonoshi being grilled.

One skewer had two slices of meat, each one as big as my fist.

No matter how I looked at it, 2 or 3 are my limit.


“I can eat 2 or 3.”


“Hey, isn’t that too few!”


“But the meat slices are huge.”


In the end, I think my limit is 3 skewers.

Even that was too much.

When the meat was grilled, black sauce was spread upon them.

The sauce was scorched by fire and oozed an appetizing aroma.

It looked delicious.

I couldn’t take my eyes off the meat.


“Although the kid is an adventurer, he’s still a kid; eating 10 is impossible, you know.”


“Is that so? The one from before ate more than 10.”


“Please consider the difference in their physiques.”


“Captain, what to do? They are grilled already.”


“Hahaha, please divide them into 7 and 3 skewers, Madam.”




The grilled meat was wrapped in leaves I had never seen before.

I wonder what kind of leaves were they?

Madam Tegra handed 3 and 7 wrapped meat to Captain Argud.




Captain Argud handed me 3 wrapped meat.


“Thank you.”


“I said it’s alright, I have caused some trouble for you.”


“Well, you certainly did.”


Chairs and tables were also set up in the place where stalls lined up.

When we were heading there, Captain Argud and Vice Captain Verivela were called by their comrades.

Apparently there were some problem.


“Ivy, I’m sorry.
I have got a job to do.”


“It’s alright.”


“Ah…It’s dangerous for you to be alone.”


“Um, I’ll go back to the adventurers’ area to eat.”


“Are you going to be alright?”


Good luck with your job.”


“What a good kid~”


He patted my head over and over again.

My hair must have gone wild.


Let’s go.”


“Well, see you again later.”


See you again later.”


Vice Captain Verivela only listened to our conversation.
Must be nice to be a spectator.

As I walked to the adventurers’ area, delicious aroma seeped out from the meat in my hand.

I walked a bit faster to the adventurers’ area.
