Chapter 61 – Miracle

My first life-threatening battle. Now that I think about it, I wonder how stupid and reckless it was.

But it’s strange.

For the first time in my life, I was proud of myself.

I’m somewhat hopeless. Even though I’m my parent’s son, I have no talent.

Disqualified as the son of a Hero.

A failure who couldn’t live up to everyone’s expectations.

I shut my ears to all those words, threw out the foul language to everyone, and ran away from the home I was born and raised in.

And today, I am myself for the first time…

“…… Night?”

When I opened my eyes, it was already night…. My head is in pieces!

“Ou, urgh… iyaa”

Everything inside and outside feels broken, it’s practically broken…. my head.

When I unintentionally tried to massage it, I found that my head was covered with bandages.

Not only the head, but also the fist and the whole body was treated……

“Earth… Did ya just wake up?”

“…… Mr. Aka?”

Under the starry sky, I was laid on a straw covered surface, and when I got up, there was Mr. Aka, cooking something in a pot under a fire.

“Mr. Aka, did you give me treatment?”

“No, it wasn’t me.”

I thought it was Mr. Aka, but then who?

“That group that attacked me… it was the young girl. She put a lot of ointment on it.”

“…… Shinobu…”

That girl… she treated me very carefully.

“The guys who attacked… I can’t trust em… but that girl… she even kneeled on the ground, asking me ta let her care for Earth…”

No, it’s not just me. Mr. Aka was also bandaged up…. I see… she……

“Is that right…”

“That girl, is she Earth’s woman?”

“No, no, no! Not at all! Definitely wrong.”

Well, I was almost confessed to, but it’s still unclear after all. 1

No, she’s a beautiful woman, and a pity about her chest, but she wasn’t that bad.

And, it was my ‘first time’ having a woman ‘Fall in love’ with me.

“But she told me ta give this ta Earth.”

“Oh? What is it?”

Saying that, Mr. Aka handed me something.

It was like a book, and on the cover it says:

“…… an Exchange diary?”

“It is. Ta hand it ta Earth without fail, said ya’d understand?”

“Exchange diary. Come to think of it, that’s….”

Something you do with a sweetheart. That is, to exchange diaries.

It is so only two people can exchange what they cannot usually say out loud.

And finally, if at the end of the notebook, a small ‘I like’ is written, it’ll make me jump up and down on a bed making a fuss.

To that extent, it was a sacred act for me, as if I were on a date in the city.

“Even though… that girl, we’re not in that kind of relationship…. what should I do….”

I was shocked when I turned the diary around.

Thereupon, on the first page all of a sudden, words that completely filled the page were written.

“Whoa!? What the? Um… 「I heard your name. But I haven’t written your name here yet. Because I want you to formally introduce yourself to me, I’d like to call your name again, after telling me from your mouth. Well, you showed me your manly figure. I, my brother, and my comrades, too, deeply regret our shallowness and apologize to you and your friend for making such an unforgiving mistake. I’m so sorry.」…..what a serious apology.”

More precisely it’s an exchange diary, something like a letter, and a written apology.

“That’s right. The child didn’t do nothing, but…… I said she didn’t have ta write the apology.”

“Hmm”

Rather, she had a strange personality, tended to be annoying and some odd times, but she’s not a bad fellow.

This message conveys her feelings.

But……

“Well… uh? 「I fell in love with you, as I think you already know. To be honest, I want to cross that line right away. If you feel like it, please call me. I’ll come running in two seconds.」 O, wha, Hey…” 2

“Ah! It quickly turned ta a love letter. Earth, ya real popular. How sweet and sour.”

“Mr. Aka”

Suddenly a surprise attack love confession… I might be ashamed, glad and embarrassed… And, Aka is smiling, too.

“Geez, that girl… ah~, what now? 「But if you want to get to know each other more, I’ll respect that, and I hope we start by getting to know each other like this. 」 …. huh… good grief, she really~… uh huh.”

I felt a bit awkward at her clumsy effort to seriously get closer to me, even though she seemed a little embarrassed as I turned the page…

  • What about your family?
  • What is your educational background?
  • What is your favorite subject?

  • How many children do you want?
  • What will be the child’s name?
  • What would you want the child to learn?

This…… There’s still more than half of it left. 3

That…… Somehow, there are terrible questions and blank answers…. What? What? You want me to answer these?

“S-Scary. I’m scared! What’s this? How many questions are there? I mean, towards the end…… Where would you build a grave? What is this!? Scaryyyy!”

Suddenly I felt a chill and was horrified. No, no, no, it’s impossible, impossible.

“Awesome Earth! As expected, yer amazing!”

“Mr. Aka, this is not something to praise! That girl’s a little, I mean, she’s quite weird!” 4

For just a moment, she had my heart fluttering with joy, but before long a sense of panic came out.

I concluded that I was afraid to read the diary any longer, so I closed it.

“And… erm, essentially Shinobu…… did they?”

The wrecked remains of Aka’s house and fields have been tidied up a little, but they were nowhere to be seen.

For the time being, while I was collapsed, I’m relieved that Mr. Aka was not attacked again or anything like that, but I’m worried about what happened afterwards.

“They left, went down the mountain. That girl and the others were touched by Earth’s brave figure…. they said they were foolish.”

“Heh…”

“They wanted ta make amends for the house, the field, and so on. But, I said no. that they should just go already.”

“……Really……”

I guess it’s no use apologizing now.

So, Mr. Aka didn’t retaliate in return, he didn’t get involved anymore it seems.

Furthermore….

“Besides, I’m not going ta live here anymore.”

Aka said that and laughed, and I was happy about it, and I laughed, too.

“Ah, you won’t! You’re going around the world, aren’t you?”

“Ah!”

The proposal I made before I fell.

Let’s team-up and travel the world together.

Mr. Aka accepted the words.

I was so happy about that.

“Hey, where do we go? I’ve never been far away from Imperial City. I only know it as knowledge. I’ve seen it in books, the domain at the bottom of the sea, the country above the clouds, or the Demon Realm.”

“That is. Clouds and the sea are fairy tales, but…… The Demon Realm…. I left the Demon King Army, I’ll never go back home.”

“Is that so? Or rather, Mr. Aka, you quit the Demon King army… no…”

At that time, I almost heard it, but I stopped.

It doesn’t matter anymore.

I won’t ask until Mr. Aka talks about it himself.

I don’t care about the past, I said that just yesterday.

“Hey, Earth. After all this, it should be enough for today, right?”

“Mr. Aka?”

Then, Mr. Aka had a gentle face, yet he said, ‘Let’s call it a day’.

I thought it would be fun to talk about what to do from now on, but the moment he suggested it, I was already at my limit.

“Well, I’m getting sleepy again.”

“That’s it. Aren’t you hungry?”

“Ah, no… actually, not that much… but if you’ve made something…”

“No, yer too tired, it won’t go ta yer stomach. The soup will be there tomorrow morning, so today ya should rest.”

Saying that, Aka put out the fire on the pot he had been boiling.

At that moment, the area suddenly darkened, but we could still recognize each other.

Because the stars were shining.

“Earth, today… was really amazing.”

“Yes, but I don’t know….”

“Ya were, Thank ya. Ah, sorry.”

“Mr. Aka… let’s not do that anymore, okay? I simply did what I did…”

“…… That…”

Saying so, Mr. Aka dropped his big body on the spot next to me with a bang, and we looked up at the night sky together.

“…… Earth… are ya not prejudiced against the demons?”

“…… Mr. Aka?”

“At first, of course, ya thought I was an enemy at the time, but, ya trusted me right away… today, ya worked so hard for me. Why?”

Mr. Aka asked me while looking at the stars next to me. A simple question.

“Yesterday, I made a joke about being a disciple of the Great Demon King…. but why did I do that?”

I was not joking about Tre’ainar though.

Even so, I’m not prejudiced against the demons? No, that’s not the case.

But I haven’t experienced the war, also the presence of Tre’ainar… after all……

“There’s no prejudice… I’m human, but…… maybe it’s because I don’t really like people.”

“Eh?”

“In that sense, demon or human, they would be fine … if it was someone who sees me …”

I was saying that, and though I was sad, I still said so.

“I was raised without any inconvenience, a blessed young master in a good environment… but I understood I was a bad kid…. I was unable to meet the expectations of others …”

“Earth?”

“…That’s all I wanted… my classmates made a big fuss about me saying what I should be …. they pushed the invisible title on their own, and it followed around all the time like a curse…. It was so painful … no one … saw me as ‘just Earth ‘.”

My life so far. And it was in the previous match that everything became decisive.

“I ran away because I couldn’t stand it anymore… I threw abusive words and said I would never come back again…. Run away…. And I got lost in the forest… I met Mr. Aka.”

“… Is that right …”

“Ah. So….. Even in the short time we met… the first time someone said I was purely ‘amazing’…. it was a demon, an Ogre…. I thought I’d definitely had to do something.”

Well, I don’t think I would have come up with that idea if I hadn’t met Tre’ainar in the first place.

If not, I would have stayed in Imperial City forever, still compromising on the disappointing evaluation of others.

But there are times when you just go out into the world for a little while.

I felt very troubled in a very narrow world.

“That’s… ah, I’ve been living on the Surface world for more than ten years…. Earth is the only one ta say that…… ta able ta meet Earth…. is a miracle.”

“In that sense, the only human lying down and talking while looking up at the stars with an ogre, including the Surface and the Demon Realm, is probably just me. That’s a miracle!”

“It is!”

Saying that, we laughed. We were laughing purely and sincerely like children.

“Well… let’s go to bed today…. wake up tomorrow…. then think a lot about the future! 」

“Yes.”

I’ll be talking about it forever if I stay like this, but let’s do it tomorrow.

There’s so much to talk about.

But, today I’m too tired as expected…. Oh, as soon as I realized that I went to sleep …

“Like that… say no…. still, tha…. asking.”

Hmmm?! Mr. Aka… What was that… I’m already sleepy….

“Earth… ta meet…. wanted ta be friends with… help me out…”

Ah~, because soon, we’ll team-up after this, there’s no point in saying thank you to each and every little thing…. Really, Mr. Aka….

– Earth, thank ya

Hmm? dazzling……?

“Eh? Blinds…What? Oh, no, it’s already morning!?”

What? I felt like I was asleep a while ago….

“Yeah, I fell asleep in an instant… Wow, the sun is already…”

I was just going to close my eyes a little, but it was already morning.

The sun shined brightly, and we could hear the bird’s singing.

What’s more, it wasn’t like early morning, it’s like I’ve been oversleeping…

『Only that much got you exhausted it seems.』

“Whoa, Tre’ainar!?”

Well, I was talking with Mr. Aka last night, so I left Tre’ainar alone.

That? Are you sulking?

When I woke up, Tre’ainar sat with an extremely serious expression and was gazing at something.

It’s a pot of soup made by Mr. Aka, which was left uneaten yesterday.

“Tre’ainar, did you …? What is this paper?”

I noticed something on the lid of the pot.

It’s a piece of paper.

Was this there yesterday?

『Child, tis addressed to you.』

“Huh? Me?”

Not knowing what it was, I took the paper, and it read “To Earth”.

A letter?

“What the hell is this? …… I know, yes, Mr. Aka’s already up…Eh?”

At that time, rather than the letter, I looked around thinking Mr. Aka was sleeping next to me.

“…… Ah …… Where’s Mr. Aka?”

However, Mr. Aka wasn’t there any longer.


[S1]Dude, how much clearer does she need to make it?

[S2]And even a free Booty Call card. Most need hours to arrange one, this lucky bastard can get his in 2 seconds.

[S3]Okay, new challenge! Answer these questions in the discord. C’mon, I dare y’all!!!!

[S4]That’s putting it kindly. Fatal Attraction anyone???

  1. I’ve read the manga through mangadex and my question is:
    1. Why is Treinar named Treynar?
    2. Why is Earth named Eirth
    3. Why is Sadiz named Sadith?

    Anyway, here’s some suggestion sir.
    Something you do with a sweetheart. That is, keep an exchange diary.
    Into
    Something you do with your loved one, that is, to exchange diaries

    1. Well, almost all of the names are English words written in katakana (I think) so some interpretation would be inevitable from different translations. Mine won’t necessarily be the right one, let’s see watch will happen when it gets licensed or even the anime adaptation.

      I’m using sweetheart cause “loved one” implies a more tangible commitment or even actual family members. This should be in the realm of a teenage crush, high school “sweetheart” kinda thing. More childish and playful (my opinion). I do like how you structured it better, so edit.
      Thanks.

      1. While i do agree that names can be different from translator and translator, such as the case of:
        フィアンセイ that could be read as Fiancey and Phianse (the latter sounds better to me), or Trai’nar and Traynar which is different but the way you read it are the same, Trai-naar.

        I however, disagree with the Earth one, since Earth name is katakana, written アース which is a direct translation of the english word earth, and changing it into Eirth change it’s katakana form into えい, then again, i could just be wrong

      2. I agree Earth should be as is, even if it’ll with its own hiccups. But on the page before Hiro’s appearance in the manga, a list with his name shows it as ‘Eirth Rag– (I’m assuming it’ll be ‘Ragann’). I guess the author has already decided how the names will be written in English.

  2. thanks of the chapter. i thought Aka would transform into the other character in the volume 2 image somehow, but i guess he’s another character entirely. still its been a great string of chapters lately and i hope aka finds a place for himself in the future

  3. I’m shipping Shinobi and Earth. I feel bad for Sadith, but since he’s not likely to return anytime soon and he’s feeling super guilty about hurting her, plus the fact that she’s his big sister/surrogate mother, I don’t think that ship is going to sail.

  5. Is there a chance you will have an editor?

    The novel is really great but the grammars are just not easy to read. I hope you will consider of getting an editor.
