Chapter 66 Latrua
Outside the tent, Nouga was preparing breakfast.
“Morning. Thank you for the soup”
“No, don’t mind it”
Yesterday, apart from the soup for dinner, I also made a soup that could be eaten the next morning.
Nouga is cutting the dried meat while warming the pot of soup.
I can hear a lively voice in the morning from my back, and then, my head is lightly patted.
Since Latrua knew that I was targeted, I feel like the number of contacts has increased.
Maybe he’s just worried but, I also feel that it’s something a little different.
However, it’s not unpleasant or uncomfortable.
It’s just a little bit, so I can’t really grasp what it is.
With Seiselk and Shifal came out of the tent, everyone started eating breakfast.
“Okay, here” receiving the black bread passed to me, I feel strange.
I thought of myself as an outsider but, everyone at the Flame Sword not only doesn’t feel strange, they even accepted me.
Just like it was natural, we all eat together, of course I got my share of bread too.
…..I gazed at the black bread in my hand.
I’m worried about the organizations but, I also feel a little relieved that I have friends.
“Oh yeah~, Seiselk. I’ll take the day off today”
“Hah….a~, well, it can’t be helped”
I wonder what it is?
Latrua is, taking a break today?
Is there such a thing during a subjugation?
I have never heard of it….well, it’s my first time interacting with a high-ranking adventurer, so there might be such a thing.
“You did it. Now you can be with Ivy”
This is, could it be it was for me?
I was glad when I think about Mira, I think it is not good. (T/N: Not sure with this one. Raw: ミーラさんの事を考えるとうれしいが、駄目だと思う。)
“Um, I’ll be fine so”
“It’s okay~, I already got the permission from Seiselk you see”
When I look at Seiselk, he just shrugged his shoulder and didn’t withdraw his decision.
Is it okay?
“You don’t have to mind it. Latrua, we’ll go get the permission from the leader later”
At Nouga’s words, Latrua looks happy.
For some reason, I lowered my head at Seiselk.
Seiselk is, with a bitter smile raise his hand.
If I were to be honest, I’m scared to be with Mira alone, so it’s encouraging that Latrua will stay with me.
Feeling relieved, I feel my strength leave my body.
Thinking about what would come from now on, it seems that I was more nervous than I had thought.
Shortly after eating breakfast, Nouga and Seiselk go to explain the matter to the leader of the subjugation.
Is it really okay? While thinking that, I see them off from behind.
“Sorry about that, Ivy”
“No, I’m sorry too. For making Latrua to take a day off for me”
“You’re mistaken. The day off was for Latrua himself”
For Latrua’s sake?
“…..Well, a lot happened”
Somehow, the always calm expression of Seiselk turns into a grim one.
I was surprised and can only stare at him.
Maybe noticing my gaze, that expression disappears and he gives out a bitter smile.
“Well, how to say it. …..Since he knew that Ivy was targeted by the organizations, he became a little unstable. That’s why, I’m sorry but, please stay with him for today”
“Is that so? I feel reassured to be with him, so it helps me a lot”
…..From the expression of Seiselk, I felt that there might be something else.
But, as a kid who just met with him, it wouldn’t be good to butt in.
I don’t know if it because he was unstable but, the number of head pats is increasing.
That is might be for peace of mind.
“A~a but, if he became annoying, it’s okay to hit him”
“Hit. is it?”
“That’s right. It okay, if Ivy the one that hits him, he won’t lose heart”
The expression of Seiselk is serious.
Even though he said that he was unstable, is it good to hit him?
“Ivy. What do you think, about my story?”
“What is it, Leader?” (T/N: I think the one who talks here is Latrua)
“It was about a really big sigh, but there seems to be no problem!”
“Ivy, we’ll be together today!”
“Yes. It makes me happy”
We see off Seiselk and the others who are going to the subjugation and then cleaning up after breakfast.
Just like yesterday, I head to the slimes that are collecting and disposing garbage.
I collect the garbage from other adventurers along the way.
Then, I felt something unpleasant on my neck.
Today, before I check the surroundings, I try to find out which direction the gaze is from.
…..It’s hard to grasp it.
When I quickly run my eyes around the surroundings, the discomfort is gone.
I held my hand tightly.
Surprised, I raise my head, and see Latrua who is staring at me while laughing.
To that smile and words, I felt relieved.
When I laugh back, Latrua returns his gaze to the front.
“Nothing, thank you for helping me”
“No problem. I’m free anyway”
“If Seiselk heard that, you will get scolded you know”
I wonder what is it.
For a moment, Latrua’s expression was like he was about to cry.
Is it just my imagination?
Right now he is the same as usual.
What is it?
When I turn my eyes forward, Mira was there waving with a smile.
Instantly, the grip of my hand who was connected to Latrua become stronger.
Latrua who feel strange was looking at me.
But, I don’t know how to say it, so I hasten my legs and pulled the connected hands.
“Let’s ask her to dispose the garbage”
“Aa~…….un. That’s right, Mira’s slime is a bit special you know. Have you saw it?”
The moment Mira’s name came into my ears, my body quivered.
Let’s get on with the story so he won’t notice. (T/N: Not so sure. Raw: 気付かなかった事にして、話に乗る。)
“She had shown me a slime that can process swords”
“So you saw it. Yes, that one. Amazing right~. It’s pretty rare you know”
“Is that so. Amazing”
I look down a little and repeatedly take a deep breath.
Just from seeing my face, it could be seen that I was shaken just by hearing her name.
Calm down, if it’s like this, it will be noticed.
Calm down, it’s fine.
I recite it in my heart many times.
I exhale for a long time and immediately turn my eyes to Mira.
“Nn? What’s wrong?”
It seems that the words in my heart spilled a little.
I shake my head and head towards Mira.
“Ivy, good morning. I wonder why is there Latrua?”
“I’m off today~”
“What’s that? That is unforgivable you know?” (何それ？ そんなの許されないでしょ？)
“Hahaha, I really am on a break. I already got the permission from the leader too you know”
“Really? Well, it’s okay. Anyway, please put the garbage in front of each slime”
I then put some garbage in front of the slime.
Looking at each child(slime)…..there isn’t any who digest as fast as Sora.
Maybe all of them are full?
Perhaps worried about me who was staring at the slime, Latrua called out to me.
“They’re slowly digesting it huh”
“Nn? Isn’t it always like this?”
Eh, ……this is the usual?
This slow digestion rate is?
The slime takes about one-fifth of the speed of Sora digesting an empty bottle for containing potion.
After all, I feel that Sora is too special.
