“I’m sorry for entering like this but I did knock.”

“Reesha-sama…”

“Just call me Reesha.”

Schenna humbly responded due to how surprised she was, while Reesha who seemed to be in control of the situation approached both of them.

After all, she was a member of the group that defeated the Demon King, as well as one of the founders of Priden. Schenna had only seen one of the members in an audience back when she was in Hashel, but to have one as a neighbor right now was beyond her imagination.

“I came here to talk business today! Are you guys aware of the empty space over at the commercial district?”

“Not me, I just recently came over to Priden. How about you Kishana?”

“Yeah I do know about it, but do you know each other?”

As Schenna explained the whole situation to both Kishana and Reesha, Kishana was absolutely astonished.

Reesha cleared up her throat and got the conversation going again.

“What do you guys think about opening a restaurant over there? There’s no need to think about any hard details, just the idea. For reincarnated individuals like you, it should be awesome since the two of you are not from here, the dishes you can prepare are bound to be innovative!”

Kishana was even more surprised after having her identity seen through since Reesha knew she was a reincarnated person.

Reesha took out some documents from her bag and showed it to them.

“This is a document required to enter the guild ‘Holy Bow of the Forest’. If you sign this, we can get you the free spot, cover the cost for the building and hook you up with 3,000 gold coins.”

“3,000 gold coins!?!? But, we don’t have any special cooking skills…”

“The pickles Kishana made and the pasta that Schenna cooked were quite incredible in my opinion.”

“Besides, both you and this town would benefit from your cooperation in the restaurant, rather than having Schenna doing monster-hunting right? I’ll be waiting for a reply within the next week, and I hope it’s a good one!”

Reesha patted both of them on the shoulder and took off.

The idea of opening a restaurant is really attractive, however, just the thought of not living up to the expectations is a bit intimidating.

‘Just to pay back the loan I would have to kill 30 daemons for that…’

“So… Reesha-san was one of the heroes and she knew about us being reincarnated into this world?”

“Yeah, she heard our conversation all the way back from the stall.”

Kishana thought of Reesha as the sweet neighbor next door. She was the one who helped Kishana with everything when she got to Priden.

Now that she thought about it, Dark Elves and the Elves had been living in a big pile of grudges for many years.

“I told you before that the Dark Elves were in hostile terms with both Humans and Elves right? This is a place made by the hero party for every race to be able to live in neutrality and peace, however, not everyone is like that. I lied to you Schenna.”

The lie was about her telling Schenna that she didn’t want to take part in monster subjugation.

She had tried to find parties for it before, but people wouldn’t accept her as a Dark Elf.
Even if she tried to find one, she would be assigned to the most dangerous roles, often putting her life at risk and receiving less money than everyone else.

Schenna felt bad for her and was angry at all those who had been unfair towards her, she clenched her fists1 tight and continued listening to her story.

“I could endure it until that point since I knew in those parties, there were people who had their relatives killed by Dark Elves. But one day, I partied up with three other male humans as a scout. The monsters we had to kill were deep down a cave and we successfully completed the mission but… I was raped by them.”2

“Kishana… it’s okay if you want to stop talking about it. I understand very well why you don’t want to take part in monster subjugation.”

“Sorry for lying to you… I didn’t want to talk about this to anyone but between best friends, I want there to be no secrets!”

For someone who dreamed of living a whole new life in this ‘peaceful’ area, that treatment had been far too cruel. Luckily, a party led by Reesha who was hunting different monsters nearby happened to come across her and saved her life.

Schenna hugged Kishana with conviction and said;

“As a knight, I’ll protect you from now on. And about the restaurant.. let’s both give it a try!”

“Thanks, that really makes me happy. As long as you’re with me I don’t mind.”

The two of them signed the document and with that, the deal was sealed.

    Silva: Wouldn’t that be what they call: clenching the fists?

    Zzonkedd: CLENCHING! THAT’S THE WORD! Oh my god, it’s been torturing me so much, like I forgot that word countless times

  2. Zzonkked: Yikes

    Silva: Wow… just, wow…

  1. I really dislike the way the rape part was revealed. Wouldn’t it have been better to write it more subtle? I mean.. i wrote about rape before. Even one if my mcs had such a past, but it was only hinted. The readers knew what happened, but they didn’t get by it like it was a truck.
    Additionally it read really emotionless. Dunno. It felt like a bad way of writing this part..

    […]”They…” Her voice grumbled as she tried to find the words “…did things to me.” Tears gathered in her eyes as she remembered how she had felt… powerless, filthy and naive – too stupid to see the signs of warning and too weak to fight back once it was too late.
    Sheena stared at her in disbelief. She couldn’t, no, she didn’t want to believe her friend, but the silent sobs and uther look of despair in her face was enough to fill him with regret and anger. […]

    1. Nuances are different in foreign languages, and it can be quite hard to translate those. So it’s probably just a bit stiff from being translated.

    2. I can definitely agree with you that many of the details in this novel are lacking, so much for a novel with 1336 average source words per chapter I suppose.

      I mean, even when I’m editing, I sometimes have to add additional details to link up the context. The author tend to jump from one plot point to another all too suddenly without giving detailed explanations. Sometimes it can get a bit confusing.

  2. Whoa this went from 10-100 instantaneously I never in a million years would have expected this novel to have a past rape

    Worse so that the person in question was a male reincarnated as a female the trauma

    I swear if that was me I would’ve been traumatized for the rest of my life

    Damn I feel so bad right now

  3. That would traumatize me. I think that I wouldn’t be the same person after something like that. Struggling with the thought that the body had been defiled. The sense of dignity being tarnished and probably the fear of helplessness. It’s a rough chapter.

  4. Damn….. I wasn’t expecting THAT?! I just can’t believe our white haired adorable mc’s best friend just got ********** by a group of thugs….. that hits abut more in the feels then I was expecting. But I hope if our knight in shining armor ever encounters those thugs she kicks their arses and if we’re lucky even kills them Lord knows that’s what I would’ve done! And if I know my Japanese WN like I think I do I’m pretty sure their gonna cause trouble for our mc and her dark elf friend (at their restaurant most likely)
    But I’m sure our knight Chan will protect her princess! Thank for the chapter dear TL San and Silva you both do good work and take care! ^_^
