From 1 month of training, my ability is comparable to the Knights .
“The brave Ars, survived the painful training and grow in alarming rate . ” ” I give you this armor . From now on I hope it could help you . ”
The king bestow me a mithril armor and sword . Amazing . Even for adventurer, there is only a small number of mithril . The price of this probably 100 times my life income .
” I better work hard to meet everyone expectations . ”
I mark my promise with a heroish word .
” Today you’re allowed to go back to the village and rest . ” Finally after one month I returned .
” Hey, you’re back! ”
” The pride of the village! ”
” I always know you’re designated for something big . ”
I was welcomed by food and drinks . They even made a bonfire in the middle of the village square . Although living in the palace was good, I missed my days in the village .
Everyone, one month ago was looking at me like a garbage . Hypocrite . ” Oh Ars is back . ” it was the mayor .
” Mayor isn’t it time to harvest? ”
Since the demon invasion, cultivation is hard . We even have to pay higher tax for failing harvest .
” Don’t worry . Because you’re the hero, our village was exempted from tax for 10 years . ”
” Huh? ”
It must be the true meaning of him rubbing his hand before . He made a negotiations with the knight .
” Ars? ”
. ”Oh! Pigna . ”
Pigna come and bring a lot of food inside her tray .
“So much, eveb a horse couldn’t eat it all . ”
” It’s for grandpa . ”
After that she quickly leave . Hmm… There is something strange . .
After that I tell about my one month of training . Show some magic . Everyone eyes is shining hearing my story . I ate Mom cooking and it was delicious . I cried involuntarily .
At night I head out to a small hill . My favorite place . From here I could see the whole village . From such a tiny village, I am going to be the hero .
Suddenly my hands are trembling .
No way? I’m scared?
I practiced sword and magic . Yet, why? Why?
“I am a hero! No! I am a farmer! Don’t fight the demon . ” Argh . I hit my head against the rock in vicinity .
Hit it again and again .
However a rock couldn’t even scratch my hero body . ” Should I ran away? Should I quit as a hero? ”
The moonlight shone and fall on a figure .
” Pigna? ”
” I was hearing someone shouting . I didn’t mean to . ”
” Don’t worry . I come here to see you . Whenever you have a gloomy expression you always come here . ”
” Will you quit being a hero? If you quit who will fight the demon? ”
” It’s… . You knoe, there used to be a hero that defeat the demon lord . Maybe a new one will appear . ”
” when the demon lord is defeated or when you die? ”
” Really I wonder why did I get chosen . ”
” You’re a lazy person, a coward, how can you be the hero? ”
” Hey, aren’t you saying mean things? ”
” Why Ars is the hero? ”
Pigna is crying and hugged me .
” Pi-Pigna? ”
” Ars just quit . Ran away . Why should you carried the burden? ” ” But if I escape . . The demon . ”
” It’s just that we will be invaded by demon . ”
” It will be dangerous . Even this village will be attacked . ”
Aaah . Finally I realized . This one month I traioto protect this village . My home, Mom, Dad, Pigna .
” Don’t worry . I made my decision . I will defeat the demon . ” ” But . . You said . . ”
” I want to protect the village . I want to protect you . ”
” me? ”
” Pigna? ”
” Listen to me . You have yo come back alive . ”
” Understood . Who am I? I’m Ars the hero . ”
Finally Pigna gives me a smile .
” Hey Ars… ”
” What is it? ”
Pigna began to squirm and her face turned red .
” If you’re okay with it, I’m willing to be your concubine . ”
It was sending me a shock .
” Where did you get the idea to be my concubine? ”
” Because once you defeat the demon lord, you will be married to the princess in the palace . ”
” You’re thinking too much . All the princess in our country is married . ”
To be exact, there is still one unmarried . But she was 5 years old . It is a crime to put your hands on her .
Hey . . Does it mean . .
” Are you proposing just now? ”
” Ah . . That . . ”
Pigna face is like a boiled octopus .
” So, you are in a bad mood because I might marry a princess? ”
I don’t have problems because she looked so cute . I love her more and more .
” O-of course not . I just want to bear your child . Oh no . What am I saying? Just quickly defeat the demon Ars . ”
” Ah . . What . . Ah . . ”
Pigna send me strong uppercut . I was blown directly into the distant night sky . To be able to send me away with a blow, the hero . I shall be careful around her .
However with this it’s settled .
I will defeat the demon, come back alive and marry Pigna!
