CCM 015 – Yo, I got Suddenly Embraced Though


Well then.

.

It’s around an hour since I’ve parted with Rei, I guess.

The fight itself only took a short amount of that but the dismantling lasted for a while.

.

All this time, Rei is waiting inside the carriage as I ask her to do so. 

.

After all, she is a young lady of the royal family so I can’t expose her to any kind of danger, much more around a class A monster.

Though it is inevitable, I still kind of feel sorry for her. So let’s grab some present or alike before I get back to cheer her up.

.

I am not really confident if things will end up well but—

.

[Ariossss!!!]

.

I just got in the carriage but I am already in Rei’s embrace.

.

[!?]

.

It’s touching me. I can certainly feel them.

I don’t want to say what exactly is (are) it though.

.

[He-hey! What’s wrong with you!]

[I’m just really relieved… You made it back safe…]

.

Hey, you don’t have to cry.

You’re worrying too much.

.

[I told you it will be fine. That is far from enough for me to die.]

[Re-really…?]

.

Well… I can’t really blame her.

.

The enemy after all is a giant orc.

There might have been 3 rank A adventurers but that doesn’t guarantee the possibility of the worst case scenario not happening.

.

[I am really really worried, you know. If something happens to Arios… I… I don’t know anymore…]

[I see… Thanks, Rei.]

.

I genty stroke Rei’s head before pulling off behind my back the flowers I got for her.

.

Priscilla.

A flower that is slightly pink in color that this girl has loved since before.

I still remember I gave her one of these when we were still small.

.

[I’m sorry. I can’t give you anything else aside from this for the mean time but… I hope this is enough for you to forgive me.]

.

Rei’s face starts to shade in pink just like the flower as she speak

.

[Uun… It’s enough. This is fine.]

.

Rei thennods her head.

.

.

.

Then.

By the time we arrive in Rastal village, the sun has already set.

.

Unlike the capital, the village doesn’t have that much source of light. Even the illumination from the lights coming from the establishments are just faint at best. 

.

What’s more, this place is just so quiet.

.

However, these things in itself aren’t that bad.

For someone like me who’s an infamous failskill and always being gossiped about, a peaceful place like this is just perfect. I don’t really have anything to do in particular anyway.

.

[Ah! Arios-san, I’ve been waiting for you!]

.

I just left the carriage and Kaya-san’s already here to greet me. That’s some smile she got there.

.

[Haha, it’s not been a long while, Kaya-san.]

.

Oh.

Now on a second look, Kaya-san is quite a beauty isn’t she.

.

I didn’t really had the chance to appreciate these things back in the battlefield but heck even her figure is ridiculous. She’s definitely the popular type.

.

She just looks a little bit older than me but she’s already within the A ranks of the adventurer’s guild. She must really be a talent.

.

[The truth is everyone wants to welcome you but due to urgencies…. I’m sorry about that.]

[No, it’s fine. I don’t really mind.]

.

Considering their injuries, I’d feel bad myself if they force themselves to wait and welcome me.

.

[I’ll serve as your guide then. This way is–]

[Ah, please wait a moment. I have someone else with me.]

[….eh?]

.

Kaya’s eyes then flutter.

I let her be and beckon my companion.

.

[Oi, you can show yourself now.]

[Yee~s~]

.

With cheerful steps accompanying her lively reply, Reimira Li Arceus has presented herself.

She’s still in disguise but residents of Rastal village can definitely figure it out. As to who she really is.

.

[Eh!? EEeeehh!? Please wait, don’t tell me…!]

.

Kaya can’t hide her agitation and Rei, seeing it, laughs while sticking out her tongue. 

.

[Hehe. Sorry about this Kaya, I came to play for a bit.]

[Came to play for a bit you say, but you…!]

.

Kaya seems to have a lot more things to say but considering that the coachman is still around, it appears she decided to hold it off for now.

Instead, when Rei approaches and closes their distance, she immediately grabs her and whispers in a hushed voice.

.

(Yo-you, just what are you doing…!? For a princess of the kingdom riding a carriage alone with a boy around her age… Who knows what kind of rumors will spread if somebody sees it…!)

(Fufu. It isn’t that bad if I say so though.)

(Could you please think more about your position, really…)

(Arara, you sure say a lot of things, Kaya, but aren’t you just aiming for Arios? HM?)

(Uhh…..)

.

Oh, yeah.

I really can’t hear what they’re talking about but it seems like they’re pretty close.

They give off the vibe like they’ve known each other for a long time.

.

We then pay the coachman and have Kaya lead us into the village.

  1. Next batch is for tomorrow. It’s a complete chapter so I won’t post any teaser.
