SBK 73 – Hero’s Party: Jannet: Perhaps it’s Useless or It Might have Already Been Too Late (Part 1)


I wasn’t able to find a good shop due to the heavy rain until I woke up the next morning in the inn.

I open the thick curtain that I closed yesterday to suppress the sound of the drops falling.

.

–Let me take back what I said before.

The sky still appears to be gloomy but my heart is already empty. My cries and lamentations are already washed away to the oblivion and my heart feels it’s already prepared for a sunny morning.

The heavens do not reflect my feelings anymore it seems, as I now feel completely free.

.

…Well, but  if the heavens are currently reflecting Emmy’s feelings instead, then I have no words to speak.

.

I take a look around once again inside the room.

I can see Katie sleeping on her bed and she slumbers like a princess or a goddess that lies beautifully.

Really, a beauty that I never thought possible in reality. Even her body… Just what did she eat for her to grow that big.

.

But then, a nostalgic voice resounds inside my head.

.

*flashback*

[Isn’t Jannet always eating the same food as I am!? More like, she’s eating much less food than me! Just what happened all of a sudden!? It’s so unfair!!]

*end of flashback*

.

Emmy said that to me before when we went out once for a bath.

Remembering the warm and lively voice of my princess-like childhood friend puts a smile on my face as I check my own body.

I don’t really understand how men feels but I wonder if it’s really finer for them if *they* are big.

…It’s probably better. It’s just that I have a blessed pair of them that I don’t feel particularly bothered.

.

If it’s Russell, I guess he’s better off finding someone who doesn’t have a pair like mine.

I mean, he somehow refrained himself from talking with me because of it. Even though I wouldn’t mind it if he comes looking for me.

.

…Gosh. This is bad. So so bad.

I always feel so negative when it comes to Russell and I can’t help it. Even though this is the path that I’ve chosen for myself.

.

Just… how long can I hide it…

.

[…hm…?]

.

Katie’s eyes open a little and our gazes meet each other.

.

[You’re quite early, Jannet-san. Have you slept well?]

[I did. Good morning, Katie-san.]

[Haaaayy. Fufufu.]

.

She slowly lifts herself out from her blanket and I am once again greeted by her revealing lingerie that makes me doubt if we’re actually the same human beings… Those curves, wait… Is her waist actually thinner than me…?

Emmy felt unfair before when she looked at my body and I have to say that now I sympathize with it. The only thing I can think of is that it’s all thanks to the blood of Katie’s parents for giving her a big pair of breasts while being able to retain the fine lines in her abdominal muscles. Otherwise, I really have to doubt if her body is that of a human.

.

…Thanks to the blood of her parents, huh.

.

[Katie-san, are your parents actually famous or influential people?]

.

It just occurred to me to ask Katie-san about it.

It might be too surprising as Katie-san tilts her head in wonder upon hearing my question.

.

[Maa~ maa~. It’s a bit surprising… Is Jannet-san actually curious about me?]

[eh? Oh, well… yes.]

.

I won’t deny it.

.

[But I’m sorry. I actually don’t know the face of my parents.]

[Ah… Is that so. I apologize… I didn’t know you’re an orphan as well.]

[Ara… Ara, ara.. Maa~ maa~~]

.

Katie-san then leans closer to me and puts me in her embrace.

I move myself in an attempt to avoid it but my reaction’s a bit delayed… wh-what the… It’s hard to breathe.

.

[You’re working hard as always~ Fufufu it’s fun to be with you, Jannet-san.]

.

It’s hard to breathe, but her body is so soft and has a strange alluring smell with it…

…Really, why am I having doubts to such a person like this…

.

Oh… Emmy said…

.

…!

.

I struggle a little in her embrace and Katie-san immediately loosens up.

It seems she didn’t mean to hug me that hard.

.

[Ah, Ara…]

[Sorry, it was hard for me to breathe.]

[Maa! I’m so sorry about that.]

.

Katie-san tilts her head then cutely winks at me with her tongue sticking out before turning around to pick her clothes up.

.

–Then, at that moment, when the decorations of the room reflect the scene of Katie-san who has her back behind me–

.

It was brief but… Katie-san puts her right hand to her mouth while her left elbow is supporting it. 

I’m sure of it… She’s contemplating about what just happened.

.

It was only for an instant before she resumed what she’s doing.

I am not certain why but I know what that posture is all about.

.

(Is Katie-san thinking more about why I was able to get out of her embrace…?]

.

Then there must be something deeper about the embrace. 

It was just a quick hug, but why would she do that…

.

…This might be my first flag but let’s make sure not to get too close with Katie-san.

I still have a duty to fulfill in this place as I have promised with Emmy.

.

.

.

We had breakfast together with Vince in the room next to ours before we head to the city.

We’re heading to the Adventurers Guild.

.

There are two things that I have to keep in mind for today.

One is to avoid the topic of the Saint in the guild.

As well as prevent the mere mention of it in the church.

.

The information about the Saint must be kept hidden behind the dark.

Except for it being a top tier class, nobody knows what the class’ abilities are.

If the top parties even infiltrated and forcefully searched for information about the Saint, their contributions as a whole might even be invalidated and the whole party to be kicked out of the city they’re living in.

.

That’s how much the information about top tier classes are classified.

The people who made it such a law are the royal family.

If it’s just a common practice, even if the royal family observes it, then there would be no problem for us to talk about it. 

I’ve always wondered about the ambiguity of this rule but I’ll take this chance to fully utilize it.

.

One more thing, I’m also currently using magic.

.

(…<Search Floor>)

.

It’s a detection magic used in dungeons.

This magic is originally meant to find monsters that are lurking behind the narrow passages of the dungeon and not in open areas like this city with lots of people.

.

But I have to consider every kind of possibility.

Is the person Katie-san saying as her companion really staying in this city?

What’s more… Seeing Katie-san dressed up like this, how could Vince, of all people, miss and not talk to a person this beautiful in this town after all these months we’re living in here?

.

We talk to the receptionist and after filling out the required documentation, we are guided to a separate room.

With the use of Search Floor, I was able to ascertain that there’s no one else in that room.

.

We take our seats on the sofa waiting for the new person to come in.

.

[But really, what’s up with that new guy? Can ya tell us more ‘bout it?

[Are you curious? Just look forward to meeting my friend. It’s about time after all~~.]

.

Just as I was listening to the two people beside me speak, a sudden sense of drowsiness attacks me—

.

[Enemy coming!]

  1. My initial theory was as Katy is the goddess herself descending, but after this arc feel more like can be one of the demon’s king trying to sabotage the hero party.
