Chapter 13 – Episode 13 How to Steal the Hero’s Woman (12)
Blink, blink, blink.
Small lights were flashing on Ruby repeatedly.
Me, Viola, and Armonia were all silent.
Except for one kid.
– Chicken soup for lunch earlier….-
I’ve been watching that bastard ever since, he’s a bastard who’s playing Dr. Jekyll and Hyde.
He was a completely different person from the information I gathered.
When that guy with the bright smile arrives, he’ll mince me a thousand times, turn me into pork cutlet, and fry me in hell brimstone.
I calculated in my head as much as possible and came up with a result that I could pull off.
‘Let’s go straight to plan. Haven’t we heard from the Zodiac about our plans yet?’
[We have sent a communication, but there is no definitive answer yet. There is one way to solve it a little faster.]
[This is a way to go directly to the Zodiac side of the ship and explain the circumstances. However, even if you use warp, it is expected to take about two days. In the meantime, neither communication nor use of Enel is possible.]
Advice and Enel. Will I be able to overcome the handicap without those two?
But there is no way.
‘Okay, hurry up and come!’
[All right. In preparation for an unexpected situation, I will make it possible to show the temperament of all characters even if it is annoying. And notifications will pop up when there are changes. … Please be careful.]
After those words, Armonia’s communication was cut off.
As Armonia said, a status window appeared above Viola’s head, and a status window also appeared above my head.
I confirmed that communication was cut off and looked at Viola.
The pale-faced viola looked like a different person to the point where I wondered if it was the viola I had known so far.
Viola hugged me, looked up at me, and hurriedly opened her mouth.
“We have to leave quickly! Ma, if my brother finds out… Because I don’t care what happens….”
Viola hugged me tightly as she told me to leave.
Don’t want to let go
I said while wrapping my arms around Viola’s head.
“Viola, come with me.”
I finished the story that I hadn’t told before.
In the first place, the plan was to stay here with Viola (also serving as an assistant), confirm the success of the request from the Zodiac side, receive Enel first, and return to the ship with Viola.
Originally, I was going to take you step by step, but…. Now was not the time to relax.
This plan was made under the premise that Viola would follow me.
If the viola doesn’t follow, it doesn’t mean much.
But I was sure she would come along.
Longing for the outside world, the desire to be liberated from her older brother, and ignoring the people around her.
I believed that he would follow me for solving all of this.
“Yes! I’ll follow you, Suho!”
“Thank you for trusting me.”
“By the way… How about my brother….”
“Don’t worry, I’ll take care of everything.”
I kissed Viola to calm her worries.
As I was about to return to the village chief’s house, Viola looked at me with fear and begged me if I should not go.
He seemed anxious because of the sudden overlap of many things.
Viola’s heart was understandable, but today’s work was important.
I managed to get out somehow by promising to come back tomorrow.
Viola asked me to come because she made it possible for me to freely enter and exit the secret passage before I left.
It was dawn beyond the night outside.
I returned to the village chief’s house.
Instead of sleeping through the window, I opened the door with the key I received yesterday.
“No matter how much it is your own house, you lock the door where others sleep….”
I cautiously entered the village chief’s house.
According to the old woman, the village chief knew something.
If so, I wondered if he would have left something like a record for himself.
‘I know it’s on the second floor, but….’
When I went up to the second floor, there were three rooms.
But I could tell just by looking at the village chief’s room.
‘No, where is the human who writes ‘Chief’ on the sign in his room….’
Is the title of village chief really that good?
I turned the doorknob slightly once.
He didn’t even lock his door.
I must have thought that everything would go well if I just locked my door….
The sound of snoring as soon as you enter the room
I already started to miss Armonia.
Armonia won’t even snore, right?
If you make snoring noises, that sounds cute.
Even if I didn’t want to carry that, I decided to find something quickly.
I shook off my thoughts and activated the mana stone I received from the vigilante the other day.
The sudden light was at a level comparable to that of the heliosphere of the Tenjinban.
‘So bright! Aren’t you getting caught!?’
Just in case I didn’t know, I took a piece of cloth that I assumed was a rag lying around and put it on the village chief’s eyes.
It was as disgusting as the young warrior’s vlog.
Once I started looking around.
Tuk, Tak, Kiririk, Tung….
“… Let’s just find out.”
Looking at the village head, I could feel once again how peaceful this village is.
Not to mention, when I used to live in a big city, I wake up at night when I hear a noise because it feels like my older sister is stealing my money….
While searching the room like that, I opened the closet and saw a safe between the clothes.
The safe was made of rusted iron here and there.
“Okay~ Armonia, get the safe key… Ruined.”
Fucked…. There is no Armonia.
Besides, the safe wasn’t even heavy enough that I could just carry it around.
“Well, there must be a key.”
I searched the room once more.
But coming out….
“No, crazy… Why do you have this The village chief….”
Lockpick came out.
A lock pick simply means a tool for picking locks.
Something like that came from the village chief’s house.
The key doesn’t come out….
When I checked the village chief’s temperament, two things stood out.
-[Kleptomaniac], [Old-style seamanship LV 23]-
“Couldn’t you just open it without a key?”
In addition, seeing that the lock pick was in good condition, it was felt that it was managed normally.
A village chief with thief skills.
There are all kinds of people in the world, but really….
By the way….
Ruined. I came all the way here and it looked like a waste of time.
The fact that there is a safe means that important treasures or data are stored in it….
Without much thought, I put the lock pick into the safe keyhole and wiggled around.
“Damn it… What should I do… Uh?”
[Old-style seaman LV 1 has been bloomed. Due to hand skill LV 555, it has been calibrated and the level of old-style seamanship has been changed to 25.]
One of my temperaments has been added.
-[Old-style seaman LV 25]-
Having an old-fashioned maritime technique, I was able to open the safe easily.
Even though I had never really used a lock pick, my hand opened the safe naturally.
“I’ll have to talk to Armonia later.”
I don’t know what the hell this is all about, but the important thing right now was inside the safe.
I looked inside the safe first.
In the safe, two fake crystal pearls greeted me from the front.
The rest were precious metals piled underneath.
“These must be real…. Ah! Have.”
There were quite a few documents listed inside the jewel.
When I read it, I knew roughly what the document was about.
It was a diary.
“What, I have a family, but I was living alone here.”
The daughter married the lord’s son, and the son was managing the lord’s land. Her wife also seems to be living well in the manor.
Looking at most of the diary entries, it seemed that she wanted to leave this place quickly.
“Hmm…. I guess there’s nothing wrong. Five?”
Documents written earlier were more like lists than diaries.
And in that document….
“Crazy…. How many people have you killed?”
The names of the people killed by the hero and the details of the incident were written.
It wasn’t just here, events that happened in the territory were also recorded.
At a glance, how many tens… No, it looked over a few hundred.
“Let’s take it for now.”
I took out one of the village chief’s clothes, put all the jewelry and diaries in it, tied it in a knot, and left the room.
Except for the Crystal Pearl….
I put the stolen items in the side of the secret passage in the tree and went to bed.
When I got up and went out to the living room, the village chief was waiting for me calmly.
“I will prepare the rice.”
The damn village chief was now proudly asking me to cook.
But I can’t use Enel right now!
“Sorry. I am not feeling well today, but I will definitely do it tomorrow.”
“Eh…. Useless, but useless! OK.”
The village chief went up to the second floor, slammed the door, and entered.
“A piece of trash….”
Fortunately, it seemed that he hadn’t looked at the state of the safe yet.
You don’t always open the safe in your own house….
I left the house and took the village chief’s bundle of clothes that I had hidden yesterday and went out of town.
I went to see the old woman.
As soon as the old woman saw me, he gave me a disapproving look and glared at me.
“What are you doing today?”
“I came because I have something to tell you.
“No, damn why did I….”
“I’m sure you’ll like it.”
“A… OK! Let’s go….”
I parted with the old woman and went to the village.
-The village after 30 minutes-
I was able to get away from the women who kept clinging to me in the village and barely meet the vigilante I met every time.
She-Hulk, who was happy to see me, secretly took me to a corner and induced a conversation.
“Looks like the time will come today. Even alcohol….”
“Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh!
The nearby treehouses vibrated thanks to She-Hulk suddenly releasing the lion’s roar.
Animals in every corner of the alley went crazy as if they sensed a major earthquake, and people ran out of their homes as if they had received a war disaster warning.
I managed to calm the vigilante and say see you outside town later.
The place was told to come to the place where the old woman lives.
“Oh no! We just eat at the bar, why?”
“These days, other people are in the way…. If only the two of us….”
Damn, I don’t want to do it!
I hate to do it!!
Why should I be so ashamed to offer She-Hulk a drink?
But the effect was certain.
The loud voice that came out the moment you unlocked the cursed sword in a famous arcade game in the past filled the town.
In fact, looking at his body alone, it seemed that he could disarm about a hundred cursed swords by tearing them open with his bare hands.
“Yes! I’ll be sure to visit you later!Haha!!”
“Then see you later.”
“Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee.”
He was Satan’s vigilante.
I’m sure if we drink together until midnight today, I won’t be able to be myself….
I won’t have anything to drink.
I immediately headed for the secret passage to Viola’s house.
Viola immediately rushed at me as soon as I arrived.
“I was afraid you wouldn’t come.”
“No way… Why would I?”
I kissed Viola and explained everything to her.
He said that a friend he knew would come and take us, and that if we followed that friend, the hero would not be able to come after us.
Viola had a smile on her face, but on the other hand, she also seemed uncomfortable.
They are a family that has lived together for a lifetime.
Especially since she has [Motherly love], It wouldn’t have been an easy choice.
It’s just that [Single-hearted] Went in harder.
In addition, the fact that the hero’s stupid behavior gnawed at [Motherly love] Must have played a part….
I held her left hand softly as I hugged the viola.
“I love you with all my heart….”
“Huh… How… I like it.”
“For trusting me….”
“I… I love you too….”
I cheered inside her as I kissed Viola and her.
‘My first love Philia… Thank you! I think I can forget you now Now the first woman has to be a viola!!’
