Chapter 192.3 : (Margo’s POV) Margo Starting
I had made my determination to save Keigo. I made up my mind the night I lost my one and only best friend and drank my frustration with tears running down my eyes.
I will get my best friend back. I want to do everything I can do now so I won’t regret it later.
I vowed to myself that I would never drink such awful alcohol like this again.
(………..Forming a resistance.)
We only had one mission.
『Rescue Bavarian-sama and bring Heinrich down.』
I was the leader and of course, if this mission was to fail, I’d be killed. Sarasa wouldn’t be spared either since we were fighting against a noble after all. That meant, I didn’t only put myself in danger but my action also put Sarasa, my wife, in danger.
I’m sorry, Sarasa… But I simply can’t abandon my best friend.
And so, I spoke about this matter with Sarasa.
“What? Stop talking in an overly cautious manner like this. It’s already obvious that I’m going to help Keigo too.”
So she said.
She said that as a merchant, she would help us financially. My weapon and armor shop was not enough to support this operation after all. We needed potions and if things proceeded into war of attrition, we would need to secure a steady amount of provisions.
I immediately asked for Juno and Erza’s help as well. Erza said that we could use her inn as our base of operations. She probably had her own thoughts about this incident. Juno also served as a great fighting potential.
I then talked to the Mama in the entertainment district. The Mama who considered Yurina as her own precious daughter promised that she would support us with all of her power. You mustn’t underestimate the entertainment district. The connections and relationships between women were strong and many men had been rendered hopelessly enamored with them.
Due to the nature of my job as a weapon dealer, I was familiar with a lot of adventurers. I couldn’t even count the number of adventurers I had helped when they were still little chicks. And so, I went out to call for the adventurers I could trust.
(………Strangely enough, I don’t feel like we’re going to fail.)
Upon talking with the adventurers, I found out that Bavarian-sama was surprisingly well-liked. So did the rest of the townspeople, they were fond of Bavarian-sama as well. Apparently, after Bavarian-sama resigned from his position, he went around to apologize to all the people he had inconvenienced. The people hadn’t seen his figure for a while and they were starting to get worried. Everyone was outraged when they found out that Bavarian-sama was being held captive by Heinrich. The adventurers who had been saved by Keigo were also furious to the point their hands were trembling in anger upon learning that Heinrich was targeting Keigo and had driven Keigo out of town.
(………..That’s right. I’m not alone!)
I realized that although I wasn’t ‘obligated’ to all the people in town, I was still ‘connected’ with all of them.
T/N: It’s nice that all of the townspeople is banding together to fight dictatorship
