Chapter 156.3: (Keigo’s Letter) To Juno
Somehow I feel really embarrassed writing this. I know Margo said that he’s going to do something about Heinrich but I don’t think I’ll be able to return to Resta. That’s why I’m also writing a letter to you, Juno.
Juno, you’ve really helped me. We beat the cockatrice together. If I were alone, I don’t think I could do anything. We had a tough time but after we managed to defeat it, I felt great! It was really the best feeling ever!
Juno, when you were wasting away because of your broken heart with Sarasa, I was at a loss. I didn’t know what to do when you were feeling down. Then you spoke your minds to me, letting out your worry to me. When I saw the clear expression on your face, I knew that you’re going to be alright.
After that, you then properly introduced me to your girlfriend, Elza. I was really happy, you know. I knew for sure that no woman could leave a man like you alone.
From now on, I’m going to head over to Tairant. After that, I’m thinking of continuing to travel and spending the rest of my life protecting Yurina-san. When a man and a woman love each other, the man has to protect the woman, right? Juno, you understand what I’m talking about, right?
I wanted to keep on staying with Juno and the others if I could. It feels like we’ve known each other for several years already even though we’ve only met less than a year ago.
I also wanted to celebrate Juno and Elsa’s marriage in a grand way as your close friend. I’m very vexed that I won’t be able to do that but for me, Yurina-san’s safety takes precedence over anything else. Please forgive me for that.
Juno, please take care of everyone in Resta. I will definitely live a happy life with Yurina-san so please don’t worry about us.
Lastly, to Juno the adventurer. Please don’t be too excessive with your adventuring and don’t make Elsa cry. You definitely must not die. You have to make Elsa happy. You’ve promised that you will make her happy, didn’t you?
On the day when we were forced to join the dungeon capture, you almost died because you were protecting Margo, right? That’s why I will say it again. No matter what the reason is, you definitely must not die. Cherish your own life. You definitely have to live on.
Also, I don’t think I’ll be able to return to Resta. Please keep this a secret from Sarasa and Elsa. After all, they will probably be sad if they knew so please keep this fact only to yourself.
Ah, right, right. My cabin might prove to be convenient for when you’re going to the forest so feel free to use it. I’ve entrusted the key to Sarasa. If you want, why don’t you stay in the cabin together with Elsa? Just think of it as having a small vacation and I think your relationship with Elsa will become much closer in one gulp if you treat her every once in a while.
You might think I’m being a busybody and my advice is not necessary but please consider this as my last piece of advice to you as your close friend.
Well then. I will end my letter here. Bye!
T/N: They can turn Keigo’s place into a rustic airbnb. Also, I agree with Keigo here. You need to take a vacation with someone to know their true color. Well, maybe not the whole of their true color but a glimpse of their true color I guess?
