CCM 20 – Yo, It’s been Really Noisy since the Morning though


It is the next morning and a little incident has taken place.

Reimira’s sleeping habits are so bad that she’s practically clinging to me by the time I wake up.

.

I is still clear in my head.

Reimira’s features on close up still remain fresh in my memories.

.

Even after I put up some distance between us last night to avoid similar things like this from happening. This girl just wasted my effort even in her sleep.

.

Not even my <Cheat Code Manipulation> can cope up with this.

.

[Good morning! Have both of you aw-…. Ah.]

.

And as I struggle to restrain myself in this chaotic situation, Kaya just has to arrive and witness what’s going on.

.

[I’m sorry. Perhaps I am causing some disturbance?]

[No no no no! It’s fine! Everything’s just fine!]

.

I am explaining what happened to Kaya and it’s taking some time for the stupid misunderstanding to be cleared. But in the middle of it all, Kaya seems to be sulking for some reason. Then after telling her all the things and clarifying nothing had happened, her expression then immediately brightens (just why though).

.

And after this and that, by the time we step out of the door of the house, it is already almost lunch time. 

.

It feels really different compared to the days when I have to wake up early for the sake of training.

.

…But to be honest, waking up like this fits better to my tastes.

.

Anyway, today is for me to commemorate my new way of living. A life away from the hustle and bustle of the royal capital, the beginning of a life into the rural areas of the countryside.

.

[Well then, let’s head first to the adventurers’ guild to register. Arios-san wants to become an adventurer too, right?]

[Yes… That’s what I intend to do.]

.

It might sound crazy but I don’t know anything else but to fight after all. I haven’t attended schools either.

.

[Uhm, Arios-san.]

[Yes?]

[Would you mind… not talking to me in such a stiff manner too. Please.]

[Huh.]

.

That’s impossible though, Kaya-san.

We’ve just met yesterday, you’re older than me, and on top of that, you are to be my senpai as an adventurer too.

It’s impossible in more ways than one.

.

I keep on telling Kaya why I just can’t do what she wants to but it seems she’s really serious about this. She even wants me to talk to her with no barriers.

.

…But you know, it is practically a rule of this world to listen to someone of higher standing. That’s why I can’t just deal with this casually.

.

[Got it. But as fellow adventurers, speaking casually with you is just impossible… But, if we’re talking in private, then–]

[Really!?]

.

Kaya’s smile is just too dazzling.

She looks really happy, but I don’t really get why.

.

I tilt my head in confusion when Rei jumps on me like she’s really raring to go.

.

[Sure, you can both talk casually on private but you are to call me ‘wifey’, okay?~♪]

[Now now, why don’t we set off already.] (Kaya)

.

And so we left and stepped out of the residence.

.

.

.

[Hm?]

.

We are on our way to the guild when Kaya suddenly heads toward my direction and starts to speak.

.

[Arios-san… Somehow… there’s something about you that feels different.]

[Eh? What would that be?]

[You see, uhm, how should I say it… but your movement seems more proficient than yesterday or something like that.]

[Nn?]

.

More proficient, huh.

I wonder for a moment what she’s talking about but I recall that last night, I learned the Sword of Origin, it’s first form.

.

And upon doing so, I reached a new realm. I keep my consciousness all over our surroundings at all times to allow myself to be prepared for any kind of situation.

.

…Though, the probability of some incident happening in this quiet and peaceful village is just too unlikely. 

.

[…Come to think of it, I didn’t really have much of a chance to look at you closely yesterday. Perhaps, you’ve been holding back all that time?]

[No no no no. That’s not true, really.]

.

For her to notice such subtle change… As expected of an A rank adventurer.

.

[Fufu. Anyway, I’m looking forward with Arios-san teaching me closely more about his sword~♪]

[I told you already but no….]

.

Why would this A rank adventurer have to insist for me to teach her though.

.

[Ah, right.]

.

Something came to mind so I look at Kaya and asks her.

.

[Is there anywhere in the village where I can sell stuff? I have some stuff in me that I’d like to sell.]

[Ah, yes. You can do it in the guild. Let’s do so after the registration.]

[Thanks. That’s helpful.]

.

I mean, it is not an exaggeration to say that right now I’m almost dead broke.

Well, there’s Rei but I feel bad if I leave everything to her. I want to, at least, feed my mouth using my own hands.

.

On the side note, there’s no one who’s called out to diss me or stab me yet from the back. 

Which, to be honest, is kind of relieving.

.

They might have known already that I am the son of the sword saint who ended up as a failskill but so far, no one has come to my face yet to give me the slap.

.

What’s more, there’s no need for Rei to put up any disguise.

Looks like the villages are aware of eccentric tendencies of Rei.

.

[Ara, Rei-chan, you’re here!]

[Ah, Oba-chan, it’s been a while!]

[Make sure that you grab and don’t let knight-sama’s neck slip out of your hands. It’ll be troublesome once he tries to hide.]

[Fufufu, it’ll be fine this time!]

.

Everyone is giving Rei such a warm welcome.

It’s really an easier place to live in compared to the capital.

.

…But.

.

[Hey, who’s that guy…]

[Since he’s walking with Princess Reimira and Kaya-san… he can’t just be anyone.]

[He’s even talking to them casually… Must be someone of a high standing.]

.

The fact that I am still being gossiped about is still the same this time.

.


Translator’s Notes/Pep Talk (lol):

  1. The sentence within the parenthesis is Arios’ own thought. Not mine. I usually put my thoughts here in this section.
  2. I’ve had some really big insecurities like Arios before. But you know, once you get out and put your head up, you’ll see people are more likely to be disinterested about you than just to hate you or diss you right off the bat. I think this applies to most places though. Unless we are celebrities then we would have gained haters just because we breathe. Hohohoho. So, be more confident. Getting over your own insecurities is really hard though. Happy Friday, everyone!

    1. Apparently, yes. He only lived with a sword his entire life, he said. But somehow, he knows an incident will happen when he sleeps together with Rei. :>

      1. The reason for this is obvious!… The instinctual fear that activates when a Yandere is targeting you from nearby.

        (I guess I finally broke my “let’s not comment until I have something useful to say or get caught up” decision… By the way, new reader, enjoying it. Thanks for your hard work.)
