Sweetness spread out when I munched that white thing.
… really delicious.”
The gentle sweetness made you smile naturally.
Borolda-san saw me and patted my head.
By the way, Borolda-san was the one who bought this sweets for me.
“Borolda-san, it’s delicious.
“Hahaha, you’re really a good kid, huh.
This is called milpa, sweets made from milk.”
So this is sweets made from milk, huh.
I took another bite of milpa.
Sure enough, I smiled unconsciously, tasting its fluffy sweetness.
I wonder if my previous soul had ever eaten sweets before?
I felt really nostalgic when I heard about sweets, though.
All things aside, this is delicious.
Though I feel depressed thinking about what will happen from now on, this is a little bit of joy for me.
Nouga-san and Loucreek-san tidied up the tableware and other dirty things, so I prepared some tea for us.
Everyone was seated once again, and drank our tea leisurely.
“Should we begin our discussion soon?”
I’m a bit nervous hearing Maarleek-san’s words.
Borolda-san, who went to the guild to report agreed and looked at the other 4 members after that.
“What about you guys? If it’s impossible then it can’t be helped.”
I was a bit confused because there’s no context, but perhaps they were talking about fighting the organization or trusting my story?
I was a little nervous about how they would judge me.
“I feel I don’t want to believe, but…is it okay to talk now?”
“I applied the magic item, so others can’t hear us.”
“Then I’ll start now.
Feelings-wise, I don’t want to believe it, but I trust what my comrades saw and experienced.
I won’t run away from reality.
I’ll fight with you all.”
The other 3 members nodded to Loucreek-san’s speech.
I admire them who readied their resolve within this short time.
If it were me, I would have a lot of doubt.
Is it because they are top-ranked adventurers that they could judge in an instant?
“Then, what did Gilmas say?”
Everybody turned towards Borolda-san after they heard Nouga-san’s question.
“I think he had expected it to some degree.
He wasn’t shocked hearing about Verdant Wind.
Then I talked to him about Ivy.
Including about the kid being a lure.
He said ‘It’s dangerous, but please do it.’ He can’t meet us now because then our plan would be exposed, but he said he wanted to see us after all of this are finished.”
“Ivy, are you sure you’re okay with this?”
I felt a bit scared looking at Nouga-san’s expression.
I know that he was worried about me since we have spent some time together.
“Yes, I’m okay with this.”
Since I have no power, generally I travel with the premise to run away if anything happens.
I run away if I’m targeted, but I’m not sure if I can run away completely after I heard the full story.
Anyway I’ll just dive right in.
This time, there are 8 people I can trust in front of me.
So, I’m okay.
“And about the lure, what are you making Ivy do?”
“It’s unnatural to make the kid act alone knowing they are targeted, huh.”
Saizerg-san supplied an answer to Rattlua-san’s question.
Meira-san and her comrades, who knows well about the 8 people gathered here, surely would be suspicious if I act alone.
They know our personalities well.
They will sense something for sure.”
Borolda-san seemed to have the same opinion.
“For now, shall we check Verdant Wind’s action? Besides traders coming in, they probably will take other actions…they might get in touch with other traitors.
Gilmas said he will check all the adventurers once again.”
Perhaps Gilmas-san still think that there are more traitors among the adventurers.
If you think about Verdant Wind, us adventurers also need to be cautious.
“Umm, if I take action, will the organization’s watchman also take action? Even if they aim to get me when I’m alone, don’t you think they won’t know the timing if they don’t keep an eye on me?
“Are you sure you’re really 9 year old? Sometimes I feel that you’re much older than that.”
My heart jumped in shock hearing Maarleek-san’s words.
It’s definitely influence of my previous soul.
But which part of my words just now made him feel that way?
I think there’s nothing strange even if a 9 year old said that.
…I don’t get it.
“Then I’ll go together with you.”
Rattlua-san put his hand on top of my head and laughed.
It’s better to have one person to act as a lure, but surely having someone accompany you would be nice.
“I get it, you can’t leave Ivy alone, right.”
Everyone nodded to Saizerg-san’s words.
As expected, Rattlua-san is quite a worrywart and likes to take care of people.
As a result of the discussion, Rattlua-san and I will act together for a few days.
During that time, we are supposed to look for the person who is watching me.
In addition, we decided to keep an eye on Verdant Wind’s Tort-san and Marma-san.
They seemed to be disappearing now and then.
What they explained so far was, they were doing special training in the forest, or doing a job request requiring only 2 people.
If you think of them as traitors, their explanation sounds suspicious.
“Ivy, Rattlua is top-ranked adventurer, so he’s strong alright.
But what he can do alone is limited.
Of course we will also back you up from the shadow, but…”
“If by any chance you get caught by the organization, in order to protect your life, do not provoke them.
We will save you without fail.”
I thought over the possibility of being caught again and again.
I believe they will come and save me if that happens.
However, since we have no idea how large the organization is, we can’t be too sure.
…there will come a time when you can’t help even if you want to.
Even then, I believe in them.
“Let’s do well on this.”
“Yeah, let’s do well.”
Rattlua-san hugged me tightly…then suddenly released me.
You’re 9, right.
…I can’t shake off the image that you’re 7.”
“I have no problem with that.”
I see, so that’s because he thought that I was 7 years old.
Even though he helped me because I looked young, in the end I have to tell him that my growth rate is slow.
“It’s not here.”
I turned towards the direction of that somewhat tragic-sounding voice.
I saw Rickbelt-san coming out from my tent.
Thank goodness I hid Sora before.
Don’t enter other people’s tents without permission!”
Can’t you do something about Rickbelt’s habit?”
“Impossible, I tell you.
He didn’t change even after Gilmas reprimanded him.”
“Aren’t you all too harsh? Besides, reprimanded by Gilmas is like a hellish special training.”
Something seems to have happened before.
Rickbelt-san’s face turned pale when he heard about Gilmas-san’s reprimand.
Is he sick?
“Ivy, you see, Rickbelt is not sick.”
“Huh? But you said illness?”
“I guess you can say he likes it too much to the level of abnormal.”
I don’t even know if I understand or not.
Anyway, Rickbelt-san likes cute things to an extreme degree, right.
“Ivy, can you show me the slime?”
Cival-san had a look of overflowing interest on his face.
Saizerg-san didn’t tell Gilmas-san, but I told him it’s okay to tell his comrades.
I have no idea how he explained to them.
“I guess there’s no problem.”
I looked at Rickbelt-san.
He had been staring at me since he came out of the tent.
Staring at me so intently
Honestly, I’m scared.
“Ah, wait a second.”
Cival-san circled his arm around Rickbelt-san’s neck and dragged him to a place a bit farther away.
I couldn’t hear what they were saying because they were talking in hushed voice.
What’s the matter?
Borolda-san glanced at them for a bit, but somehow looked back here in an instant.
I noticed that Borolda-san’s face was a bit pale.
“Are you alright Borolda-san? Your face is a bit pale…”
“Hahaha, I’m alright, just uhh…”
His face was twitching though, is he really alright?
“Sorry to make you wait.”
I looked towards Cival-san, he was smiling gently but Rickbelt-san was pale.
…I better not ask.
I returned to the tent and let him see Sora.
“Certainly, this is Rickbelt’s favourite.”
Sora is hopping around Cival-san.
Seems like Sora likes Cival-san.
…We’d better think of something about Rickbelt-san, huh.
