The shock of the raw sea urchin finally ran through me after the party. I was writing in front of the fireplace while everyone else was dead asleep from drinking. I could hear the scratching sound of the pen running through the paper. I really loved this indescribable scent of ink.
When I first arrived in this strange world, I was already happy enough that I could sleep on a bed. Ash then came to me and I became even happier. Right now, impossible as it may seem, I even had someone I love, my girlfriend.
She was in danger because she got caught in my problem and so, I took her away from the town. At that moment, I certainly felt like a hero from a manga, the main protagonist, so to say. Now that I had become a hero, I had something I needed to protect too. That something was the real deal this time. Something that was really precious to me.
I couldn’t pretend to be a lone wolf anymore. The hero had to protect the heroine, at least that was so according to the conventional belief. As for the enemy, I guess it would be that nobleman called Heinrich. I like this house but it was a different matter entirely if there was the possibility of her being in danger if we stayed here.
I had plenty of money. Maybe I could entrust the livestocks to Sarasa and pretend that we were going on a long, long honeymoon by riding the wagon I had.
I’m not alone anymore.
When tomorrow comes, I should try to discuss this with the three of them after they wake up.
T/N: They don’t have marriage ceremony yet but they’re already jumping to honeymoon~
