“Nice to meet you, I’m Tort, Meira’s older brother in Verdant Wind.
This is my younger brother, Marma.”


I was shocked.

There were two identical faces standing side by side.

Are they perhaps twins?


“Ivy, are you shocked? They are twins.
It’s indeed unusual.”



…Is that so?

If Meira-san says so, then it’s probably correct.

I noticed that my previous soul’s knowledge had quite an influence to the knowledge I currently possess.
I can’t say any more awkward things.

But I didn’t think there was any twin in the villages I visited until now.

Is it unusual?

Let’s put it in my mind.


“Nice to meet you.
Please take care of me.
I’m Ivy.”


“Oh~ you’re a good kid.”


Tort-san and Marma-san responded with a smile.

…But, what is it?

There’s something strange about the older brother Marma-san…it it just my imagination?


“I know right! He’s very good kid.”


“Are we all here?”


I heard a fairly dignified, calm voice.

When I turned towards the voice’s direction, I saw a man with strong body and a bit tough look walking this way.

He had an extremely reliable aura wafting around him.

This is the first time I get such an impression from a first meeting.

How curious.


This is Ivy we talked about before.”


“Eh, um, I’m Ivy.
Please take care of me.”


I was surprised to hear someone called my name so suddenly when I was staring at the man absentmindedly.

I kind of greeted him though, was it alright?

So he is the leader of the subjugation team, I see.


“I’m Borolda, leader of the subjugation team.
Nice too meet you.”


He patted my head lightly as he said that.

What is it, is it the atmosphere?

This should be our first meeting, but I feel calm when he patted my head.

He is indeed a mysterious person.


“Meira stayed in this area all the time, right?”


“Yeah, that’s correct.
Or should I say, a slime tamer never participate in a subjugation, right?”


“Hahaha, it’s certainly the truth.
We won’t do anything that may harm our precious tamer.
If possible, please stay together with Ivy.”


“Of course.
Leave it to me!”


I laughed a little because Meira-san looked this way and winked at me.

But what did he mean by precious tamer?

I wonder if the number of tamers isn’t so high?

I want to hear more about that…but I should do it some other time, right.

When I was deep in thought, Rattlua-san hugged me tightly from behind.


“I’ll also accompany you whenever I can! You can count on me!”


I don’t think I can really count on him.



Please take care of me.”


It is considered rude to the other party if you hold back too much.

Depend on others sometimes, and help others with whatever you can do.

I recalled what the fortune teller told me about important things in relationship with people.

I don’t understand how much holding back is considered too much, but this time I’ll let myself be spoiled.

Honestly, I’m afraid of that uncomfortable feeling.


Meira-san and the other 2 from Verdant Wind parted ways after they agreed to meet tomorrow.

Borolda-san, the subjugation team leader, seemed to have something to talk about with Saizerg-san, and they went somewhere together.


“Um, Rattlua-san.
May I have some food ingredients? I would like to make some dinner.”


“Are you sure? The soup and meat you cooked yesterday were delicious, so to be honest I was thinking of asking you to cook again today.”


“I’ll be happy to do it.
I’ll try my best.”


Seeing Rattlua-san’s smiling face, I couldn’t help but smile as well.

I returned to my tent and spoke to Sora in a hush.
Sora was inside my bag.


“I’m sorry, Sora.
Looks like you’ll have to stay in this cramped space for the time being.”


Sora stretched vertically for two times in the bag, but it made no sign of coming out.

Even though normally it would leap out from my bag.

I wonder if Sora understand my situation right now?

I petted Sora gently, and it bounced cheerfully.


“I’m relieved that they are all nice people.”


After hearing my words, Sora stopped bouncing and stared at me intently.

…What is it?

Sora’s reaction was different than usual.

When I was about to talk to Sora, I heard a slightly loud noise from outside the tent.

I was curious, but let’s check it later.

I put some potions inside the bag containing Sora.

I wonder when the subjugation will be done.

I’m running out of potions for Sora.


“Sora, I will cook some dinner and then come back here, alright.”


Sora was bouncing and stretched vertically.
After I petted Sora, I closed the bag and covered it with a blanket.

I took out some seasonings from the bag and left my tent.

Rattlua-san had already lighted a fire and prepared a pot and some water.


“I’m sorry for being late.”


“Don’t worry about it.
Are these alright for the ingredients? Oh yeah, we will get some fresh meat tomorrow.
They said they will distribute the Mou we killed today.”


Mou’s fresh meat.

That’s great.

I sliced the food ingredients I received into proper size and put them in the pot.

Today’s meat seemed to be Kokko’s salted meat.

Kokko…what is it, something came to mind but I don’t know this animal.

Anyway, because the meat is salted, if I don’t pay attention to the seasonings, it will become too salty.

I put some of the herbs I brought here into the pot and boiled them together with the meat.

I suddenly felt something uncomfortable around my neck

I hurriedly looked around.

Since there were a lot of adventurers around here, I couldn’t find out who was it.

Besides, the uncomfortable feeling disappeared when I looked around.

I wonder who it was…

Someone plopped their hand on top of my head.


“It’s alright.
Because we are here with you.”


Rattlua-san patted my head with a smile.


“Thank you.
Soup will be ready soon.
I will go and grill the Kokko meat.”


I had removed the salt content from Kokko meat.
I then sprinkled some herbs over it and grilled it.

This herb had slightly unique smell, I wonder if it’s alright?

Nouga-san came out from their tent and sat next to the now grilling meat.

Cival-san, who went somewhere before, suddenly was sitting beside the soup pot.

I didn’t sense Cival-san’s presence at all, as expected from a top-ranked adventurer.

…there’s something different about him.


“Hmm? What’s wrong?”


“Not at all, please wait a bit before we eat.
Saizerg-san isn’t here yet.”


“We can forget about him.”




“Cival, what did you say?”


I turned around since I heard Saizerg-san’s voice.

He was looking at Cival-san with a tired look on his face.


“Ah, welcome home.”


“Your earnestness, without any evil intent is what makes you scary, you see.”


“No way~ I’m not scary, alright.”


“How shameless.
Even though you plan to eat my dinner.”


“Not coming back for dinner is worse.
It’s wasteful to have leftovers.”


“Wait a minute, you’re not planning to set aside some dinner for me?”


“…Just because it will be a waste if it gets cold.”


Cival-san is actually quite different with his first impression.

I thought he had somewhat gentle image.

What is it…like going his own way?

Is it correct?

Well, he’s a bit eccentric.


“Let’s eat.”


I called out to them to stop Saizerg-san and Cival-san who were arguing with each other the whole time for some reason.

I noticed Nouga-san, who was staring at the meat became increasingly sullen as well.

…Not only Rattlua-san, perhaps all members of Sword of Fire are unique.
