Good morning. Today looks to be a nice day.

I ate the breakfast that had been prepared for me, changed into the clothes I had worn until the day before yesterday, and went outside. There, the kids were playing with the bamboo-copters I’d made yesterday. Myuri was also playing together with them with a look on her face as if she was seeing something unusual.

Well, I guess those things don’t exist in this world.
Let’s call out to her.

“Good morning to you, Miss Myuri!”
“Oh, good morning to you too, Alim! The children told me about it. To think that you crafted something this incredible.”
“Yes, I got the idea after seeing falling leaves and birds…”

Hm~. That explanation was kind of out of desperation. You probably wouldn’t think up a bamboo-copter after seeing a bird. Are there even birds that fly by spinning?

“Wow, so you have a talent for making such things, Alim!”

Thankfully, Myuri thinks that it’s natural1. Well, perhaps there actually are birds that fly by spinning in this world. Let’s change the topic to something that doesn’t further delve into bamboo-copters.

“Eh-heh-heh! Thank you very much! Oh, come to think of it, why are you focusing on healing magic, Miss Myuri?”

“Huh, why I do that? A long time ago, when I was about to be injured, Orgo shielded me. But in exchange, he got hurt. That wound remains even now. You cannot see it due to his gauntlet, but it is on the palm of his right hand. He shielded me and I could do nothing for him… If I had been able to fully heal his wound… that is what I thought, so I focused on healing skills. For that reason, it is also thanks to him, you see!”

That sounds like the time when I shielded Mika. It’d be nice, if she also felt this way about it, but… I mean, I’m dead and on the other side now.
I wonder, what does she think of it? It wouldn’t be surprising, if she didn’t think about it at all. I absolutely don’t want to see her sad, but it makes me lonely. I want to see her again…

Crap, this ended up making me think about something unpleasant. Let’s tease Miss Myuri a bit in revenge.

“That’s right! Do you maybe have feelings for Mr. Orgo?”
“Eh… erm!? Well, erm, it’s not that I like him or anything… No, I do like him, you know? I like him, but that isn’t what I mean…! Uhm, it’s not like that… Hah~…”

Oh, did I hit the bull’s-eye? That’s rather adorable.

“Your face is all red, you know?”
“Ah, that’s… that’s because you asked if I… if I have feelings for Orgo!”
“I’m sorry, I was just teasing you.”
“Grr~… Please do not make fun of me like that!”

She’s so innocent, isn’t she? That’s nice! Though Miss Lilo is also cute.

Still, all the members of Seinforce are 18 years old, so one, two, or even three of them might be in love with each other… no, three wouldn’t be good. Even if they got together, it should be fine2. They’re childhood friends, aren’t they?

I was like that too, until right before I died…
…Tch.

Ah, I’d really like to chat a bit more and enjoy this peaceful moment. But there’s something unpleasant approaching from the forest, you see.

It looked like Myuri had also noticed it, since she was staring in its direction.

“Alim, please get the kids away from here,” she told me, after turning to me. “Also, tell the people of the village to take shelter.”
“Alright…”

I immediately took the kids away and had them take shelter together with the village chief and the other villages.

Oh, this feels like it’s one of those guys. I defeated 873 of them in the dungeon. A C-Rank dog with long, gray hair, the “Ashen Knight Dog”.

There was a sound as if the wind was howling. It looked like the dog had destroyed the fence with its magic. Then, it stood beyond the broken wall.


TL notes:
There’s a part about Alim’s childhood friend Mika in the middle that was completely absent in the previous translation. I think this is the first time he mentioned that he shielded her from something (which will be a recurrent thing), though he mentioned an injury missing after his reincarnation in chapter 2.

With all the previously missing parts and wrongly translated sentences, this honestly feels like a completely different chapter.



 

Footnotes:

  1. This might also mean that she’s too much of an airhead to notice. The expression used is 天然思考, and the first part, 天然, can also mean “natural airhead” according to jisho.
  2. I’m not sure about this sentence. It might also mean “even if there are any (people in love with each other) they’ll think it’s fine”.
  3. This should be 119, unless I miscalculated somewhere.
