Two people and one dog. Hands joined together, long and white breath coming through their mouth as they ran through the bustling entertainment district that was covered with flickering snow. The people who got curious and observed the running couple for at first, lost their interest before long and eventually entered the establishment they had planned to go in.
Yurina-san looked like she was feeling cold so I put the ash wolf mantle over her shoulder. From behind me, I could hear the sound of the establishment’s wooden door being kicked open.
The Afro Boss along with Lackey A and Lackey B came out from the establishment while Lackey C and Lackey D were somehow being handled by Mama. Those thugs were holding swords, axes or other weapons in hand.
I signaled Yurina-san to crouch and hide behind the shadow of the building. I made a shushing gesture to Ash and he sat down like a good boy he was.
I aimed my magic power toward a puddle of water on the bustling street. The puddle made a crackling sound and turned into basically a skating rink. Then I drank dual potion (medium) so I wouldn’t run out of magic power. After that, Afro Boss, Lackey A and B came approaching us.
This time, I aimed my palm toward the skirt of the ladies in the entertainment district who were touting for customers. The skirt of the ladies flipped magnificently, making the ladies scream.
I’m really sorry.
Afro Boss, Lackey A and B were running with all of their might toward us but their necks made a 90 degrees turn in order to stare at the ladies’ panties. The Afro Boss and the lackeys were easily charmed by the ladies. The three thugs then accidentally put their feet onto the puddle of water I had frozen.
The slippery puddle gave zero friction resistance, making the thugs unable to hold their footing and all three of them fell to the ground magnificently with the back of their heads hitting the ground first. They had been running with all of their might so the fall made quite an amazing sound.
The three thugs fainted with the white of their eyes showing. They didn’t even move an inch.
They’re not dead, right?
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Wind level 4.』
Yurina-san pinched my arm, her cheeks were puffed up. Apparently she wasn’t happy because I had flipped the skirt of the ladies.
I apologized to her, saying “sorry” while scratching the back of my head with my right hand.
I took the sword, axe and other dangerous weapons from those three unconscious thugs and then I hurried Yurina-san and Ash to get to my wagon.
Two people and one dog, riding on a wagon. We’d be alright now. It was cold sitting on top of the wagon so I put a red grizzly bear quilt on Yurina-san who was sitting next to me.
Then Yurina-san, who was sitting next to my right on the driver part of the wagon, turned the left edge of the quilt toward me. She then placed her head on my shoulder, warming my body and soul. Ash, who was riding on top of the wagon, sniffed at us, as if he was trying to say “me too!” and so, I held him in my arms.
For a while, Yurina-san and I went to the city gate on a wagon in silence. None of us were trying to start a conversation. The old man guarding the gate gave us a thumbs-up with a wide grin on his face, gesturing “good luck!” to us.
If it was the usual me, I’d feel bothered by it but for some reason, I just couldn’t care less about it at all.
While riding on top of the rattling wagon, Yurina-san and I stared at each other in silence.
And then, the two of us shared a long and sweet kiss.
We were on our way home. The snowfall had already stopped. In a world surrounded by snowscape as far as your eyes could see, the sky was perfectly filled with stars and adorned with the sparkling big, blue, full moon.
The blue wolves were howling simultaneously toward the blue full moon.
For me, I felt like the howling sounded like the wolves were blessing our escape from the town.
T/N: I feel like it’s really romantic that MC and Yurina-san can connect their heart despite the language barrier. Like, there’s something in chemistry level (?), instinctual level (?) that connect them together.
