Strange Grief Wants to Retire ~The Weakest Hunter’s Hero Dream~ - 104.2
Chapter 104 Vacation Begins ②
“No, it won’t appear!?”
Of course, I denied her.
First of all, Thunder Dragons rarely appear in the first place. Certainly it is true that I had heard that it lived in the mountains, I had also actually encountered one before, but among rare species of dragon, the less there is, the more dangerous they are, originally they are dragons which you can’t meet even if you try to meet them.
Regarding the latter one ―― It was the first time that I heard of it so I don’t know, but me not knowing about it even though I know anything about dangerous monsters that you can encounter in the forest means that the probability of encountering one isn’t probably high.
I think it is logical, within common sense and a reasonable deduction. Sytry was such a worrywart.
In response to her little sister’s words, Liz inflated her cheeks and argued back with her arms crossed in front of her chest.
“Syt? There is no way that it will appear? Cry-chan had said ―― That the enemy is human! Don’t make random guesses!”
As I said, nothing will appear!
Sytry and Liz should definitively be on my side but it seems that they don’t trust me.
“…… What is wrong with trying to understand even a little bit of Cry-san’s thought? Although the appearance rate is still low, I think that it is a reasonable lineup…… Cry-san, is it a miss?”
Won’t appear. It definitely won’t appear. This isn’t an adventure, it is a vacation! However, if she was going so far, then I will ―― Just to be extremely cautious.
I don’t answer Sytry’s words while she is expectantly looking at me and slide down my finger on the map.
“Aside from those mountain ranges that we have to cross no matter what, can’t we avoid the forest if we take a long detour to go around them?”
“However, it will take too long to arrive at the 【Castle of the Myriad Demon】 ―― With the plains, the appearance rate of powerful Monsters are quite low. There are too few opportunities. It may be presumptuous of me but ―― You don’t need to mind about Black, White and Gray so I think that we can take some risk.”
Sytry who rarely says no, answers back with a well thought argument. What kind of opportunity……
Does it mean that deep down even the scholarly Sytry is a Treasure Hunter. If she finds a dangerous place or something that interests her, she will wander in it.
If it was the usual me, then the flow of the conversation would carry me but today I am a bit different.
I look back at Sytry’s eyes which were still as the surface of a lake and clearly tell her.
“It’s fine. There are towns there and this time the purpose is a vacation! See, Tino, you don’t need to be afraid…… I want you to trust me once in a while.”
I looked at Tino who had tears in her eyes and then looked at the two other people and sigh a little bit.
“I really don’t have any other intention. As these past days were horrible ―― Not only Tino, but Liz and Sytry are also overworking a little bit. I shouldn’t be the one to say it as I am the one taking you out of the Imperial Capital but I think that you should take a good rest and get into a good form. It is just a trip, a trip. A vacation. Both Monsters and Phantoms are taking a break. Let’s eat delicious food, take a good rest and do fun things ―― There is nothing dangerous. It is true, you know?”
I know that I am not convincing as all I do is only taking breaks. However, that was my real intention.
Forget about throwing the punishment game onto Tino. I want to take a break and throw away my job, both of those reasons were true.
With my heartfelt words, Tino’s shoulders were shaking and she stared at my eyes.
“Is it fine to…… Believe in you? Master.”
Aaah. It is fine to believe in me…… Tino.
Just as I was starting to nod strongly, my ears caught on the small noise of rain.
I checked on the windows. The number of water drops that adhered onto the window glass were increasing in an instant, it turned into a downpour that you can’t believe that it wasn’t raining just a few minutes ago.
A roaring wind and heavy rain sound. Perhaps the horses were surprised by the changes in the weather, the carriage shook greatly.
Since the whole carriage was roofed, rain didn’t come in but the horse pulling it was a living thing. Even if it was a storm, it wouldn’t matter for a Platinum Horse but it would be impossible to control a regular horse in this downpour.
In the first place, driving in the rain was much more dangerous than driving at night ――.
Mixing with the sounds of wind and rain, a small irritating voice can be heard from outside.
Are Black, White and Gray alright outside?
When I was confused about what to do when the weather suddenly changed, lighting suddenly struck down. Its sound then comes later. The carriage bounces greatly and stops.
I barely withstand my scream. If no one is frightened but I scream then I will look way too uncool.
The wind and rain striking against the carriage was so strong that it doesn’t seem that it will subside after a short while.
What was going on…… If it was like this, we are stuck. If the storm came a little bit earlier, then we would have reported the departure to tomorrow, the timing is too bad.
My body was getting colder. I put on my cloak and firmy close the button.
For Sytry, Liz and finally me, this wasn’t the first time that we had a big storm outside.
Actually, I am ―― More of a rain guy. As I am so unlucky……
“It is suddenly raining a lot……”
“Do you want to go outside for a moment…… The horses are borrowed so we have to take good care of them.”
And at that time, Liz who has been staring at the windows says.
“Yosh, Ti… Let’s run.”
Tino makes a *pokan* blank look and Liz takes off her cloak that she was wearing.
Perhaps because of the low temperature, steams were slightly rising from her skin. She once again checks outside the windows and nods with satisfaction.
“An amazing storm…… Isn’t it perfect for training? As expected of Cry-chan! Syt, you have potions right? Ah, at the same time I am going to develop her resistance to lightning, so gimme a Lightning Strike Medicine.”
No way…… I will be troubled if you pin down the weather on me.
Sytry takes out a bright white potion from her bag.
Lightning Strike Medicine…… I have seen that before, it was a crazy potion that attracts lightning. I remember hearing the principle behind it but I don’t remember it.
In addition to that, various other potions were being gathered together and she put them in a special circular box and gave it to Liz.
Tino was completely rigid. Her wide-opened eyes turn to Liz as if she was daydreaming.
As expected, even this development was unexpected for Tino. Perhaps right now, there is a revolving lantern flashing in her brain.
“Liz ―― ”
As I raise my voice to stop her violence, Liz says with the brightest smile today?
“No problem, Cry-chan! Ti has absorbed enough Mana Material and her training is going well too so she won’t probably be killed in one strike! Watch over Ti’s brave figure!”
“Wait a minute ―― ”
By the time I called out, Liz and Tino figures had already disappeared into the storm.
Even though one second before she should have been at a distance where I could touch her, apparently she had pulled her arm and took her. The strong wind and heavy raindrops blow through the open door and drenches us.
I can’t catch the appearance of Liz and Tino that has disappeared in the darkness. And clearly imprinted inside my brain, I saw the look of betrayal by something that Tino believed in, right in her eyes before disappearing.
Things important to me always slips out of my palm. It is always the same.
“Ah, Onee-chan! Take along Black, White and Gray! ………… Moooh! Why are you ignoring what I say, every single time ―― You even left the door open! ………… Ah, I will immediately prepare the tent. Cry-san, please wait inside for a moment.”
Sytry begins preparing for the camping while *nikoniko* smiling as if nothing had happened. Does that level of thing means nothing to High-Level Hunters from the Imperial Capital.
It was impossible for me to catch up to Liz. Right now, I can only rely on Sytry.
“Why don’t you call Liz and Tino back?”
“Eh…… Sadly, it is impossible…… But is there anything happening?”
A horrifying sound of lightning drowns out my thoughts.
Thanks for reading!
Aaaaah poor Tino! That look of betrayal! And seriously develop Lightning resistance by being hit by lightning! XD
Strange Grief must have created a lot of weird resistance that no one can think of XD
Tchao à plus!
Danmachi Episode 3 Review Corner!
I laugh so much when I have read the Reddit post saying that said that Bell got an invite in Smash Bros when he received the guild letter and when he did that Bell Argo Punch and turn to the camera I immediately know that it would have been his smash attack XD.
And when Lili shook her head when Lido wanted to handshake Bell! Hahahaha!
