SBK 074 Part 1 – A Reliable Partner that will Support Even Those Who Won’t Show their Weaknesses


After we’ve defeated the demon king, we make our way to report towards the guild.

.

[Hi, soldier-san! We can stop evacuating the residents now! Also, that clerk is now free to go, okay?] (Sybilla)

.

Sybilla is picking up the treasures that have fallen from the demon king once it vanished and she picked up something in particular.

It seems to be a golden coin where a part seems to be peeled out and a shade of stone can be seen inside.

It’s the best evidence to identify who is the real culprit behind the fake money and counterfeiting.

.

[We took care of the man who’s behind this crime and as unfortunate as it seems, we can’t arrest and have to kill him off as he’s keen on destroying the city.] (Sybilla)

[This is indeed the same type of money that was used in counterfeiting in buying off several luxuries and jewelries…! Thank you very much and we shall report this matter to the higher ups!] (Soldier)

.

The soldier salutes to Sybilla then turns to his colleagues informing them of what happened before leaving the guild.

In exchange, the leader of Gale Thunder who’s been standing by approaches us.

.

[You guys are so superb, really..!] (Leader of GT)

[Right?~ You can sing more of that. Oh by the way, the real culprit was that shadow, the demon king we’ve seen before. But we still somehow managed! We’ve got Eve-chan afterall!] (Sybilla)

.

Sybilla then takes Eve to stand before the leader of Gale Thunder.

She spoke with such a loud voice and emotion as she showcased the girl to everyone inside the guild’s hall.

.

[Such a little girl… Wait, don’t tell me she already has a class of her own?] (leader) TL: Classes are provided to them at age of 15

[Precisely! This girl from the orphanage and is actually a level 21 Assassin! This child has a good head between her shoulders and a reliable instinct!] (Sybilla)

[Is she one of your party members?] (leader)

[Oh, this child is working SOLO tho.] (Sybilla)

.

When Sybilla exaggeratedly said the word ‘SOLO’, Eve got caught so off guard she turned her head around to look at her and said ‘huh…?’. 

She must have thought that she’s working as a party member. Still, Sybilla caresses the confused child’s head before giving her a wink to assure her.

.

[Hey, so you’re called Eve?] (leader)

[Y-yes…] (Eve)

[If you’re okay with it, why don’t you come with us? More like, we really need capable hands so won’t you consider joining us?.] (leader)

.

Eve was just a pickpocketing orphan just the other day but now, she’s getting a direct invite from the leader of the city’s top adventuring parties.

.

[B-but I..] (Eve)

[We only have a single girl to rely on for our vanguard with her evasion, you see. I respect her but I think she’s carrying a very heavy burden. So if you could maybe help us, then…] (leader)

[ah, uhm, I am working as well to assist the orphanage, so if it’s okay with you, as long as I’ll get paid, I’d be willing to join on a part time basis.] (Eve)

[Yosh!] (Leader)

.

The leader of the Gale Thunder then turns to his back and a girl then moves forward and leans down to talk to Eve. She’s the assassin I healed previously who’s working as Gale Thunder’s vanguard.

.

[I am surprised that the orphanage raised a child as gifted as you. I look forward to working with you by my side.]

[Ah… T – thanks!]

.

Eve bows her head and the girl cheerfully strokes her head. 

.

I thought that Sybilla would be taking Eve with us to the party knowing how much she likes her but… I realized the flaw of that after seeing what had happened just now.

Eve has to earn to be able to support the orphanage and the kids younger than her. And that can only be possible if she found a stable job here in this very city.

.

But us, on the other hand… has now accomplished our objective by defeating the demon king and has no more reason to stay in this place.

…So yeah. Eve will serve as the pillar of the orphanage and she can’t go with us any further.

.

The battle against the demon king was the last time we’re together fighting.

That’s why Sybilla made an effort for Eve to be noticed by an established adventuring party that would allow her to have it easier working in the dungeons in the future.

.

Seeing how each and everyone of Gale Thunder happily accepted Eve, I see a new side of Sybilla having such a gentle and warm expression as if she’s looking at her own daughter getting out of her protection.

.

.

.

After wrapping up the talks inside the guild, as now’s a good time, Sybilla invites me and Emmy to go to a certain place.

.

Towards a place where the city’s celebratory cheers will not reach.

A quiet place that can oversee the seas while being far off from the city.

And on it is a large building with wide opened windows in it.

.

[This is… an abandoned church..? No, this place must be…] (Russell)

[It is what you imagine. …Huh? Oh, I guess she already arrived. If it’s her, then I expect no less.] (Sybilla)

.

I didn’t understand the latter part of what Sybilla had said but before I was able to ask what she meant, I caught a glimpse of the sight that lies beyond her figure and can only be speechless.

Even Emmy was caught by surprise and couldn’t react right away.

.

I mean, because there it’s…

.

[Ah – arre!? If that ain’t Fredrica-nee-san!] (Eve)

.

The sister that we left and should’ve been in Adoria, Fredrica.

And It seems like Eve knowing her is a matter of fact in this place.

.

[Eve-chan…!]

.

Fredrica hears Eve as well and she sprints out of the building and… hugs her tight while her tears are falling.

.

[I’m sorry!!! I didn’t know… Eve-chan… had to carry everything when I leave and manage on your own… I’m so sorry! I’m really so sorry…!] (Fredrica)

[Uwwaa, w-wait, really… The heaviest thing that I’ve to carry right now are just yo breasts tho..!] (Eve)

.

Eve repeatedly taps Fredrica after saying so before she finally lets her go.

.

[I didn’t think that I had to carry everything, y’see, especially about the stolen money. That goddess-sama over there helped me a lot y’know. She’s really blessed me.] (Eve)

.

Eve points toward Sybilla while saying so.

Fredrica then looks at us with mixed expressions of happiness and a bit of an anger before bowing her head to Sybilla. 

.

[Thank you, in my place, you…] (Fredrica)

[No need to mention it. Let’s go inside first then talk. These two can’t get the gist of things yet after all.] (Sybilla)

.

She’s probably talking about me and Emmy. I mean, the two of our gazes just met and it’s funny how the both of us can just tilt our heads.

As for what would be talked about inside… It must be the reason why Fredrica is in this place.

.

Still, there are two things I discovered while listening to their conversation.

One is that this is the orphanage where Eve is living.

And Fredrica is somehow involved as well in this orphanage.


Translator’s Note:

  1. The class was given by the Goddess to the children at age 15 in a ceremony as per chapter 1 but it seems she have gotten hers without the ceremony soooooo… Fredrica… You sus!
