I think of Margo as my friend. Of course, there is a reason why I think like that. I think we are similar in a sense that we both love solitude but contradictorily, we somewhat easily succumb to loneliness.
He’s usually a jovial, dignified old man who never shows his weakness to others though.
Judging from how dignified Margo is, I thought he must have a wife already but up until now, I’ve never seen any sign of his wife. I suspect there are some circumstances that make him unable to find a wife but that’s not the kind of topic I’d deliberately talk about through writing.
If Margo wants to talk about it then I’m all ears but I won’t deliberately pry into his matter. Just carefreely jumping into the bath and having a drink merrily together with him is enough for me.
When I was still working for that trading company, I sometimes got to make an acquaintance with a foreigner. I have many experiences where I felt comfortable with the distance between us where we wouldn’t invade each other’s privacy due to us unable to communicate properly given the language barrier.
A friendship blossomed by overcoming the language barrier between us.
The relationship between me and Margo is just like that. Therefore, I won’t dare to invade his precious privacy. The same can be said regarding Sarasa and Juno too. I can feel it by watching their behavior but I won’t dare to pry.
I am that kind of person.
I once went drinking with my friend and then I ended up prying into his thoughts, more than I should have because I was drunk. I really regretted that incident.
However, I won’t have to worry about that in this world because I can’t talk in their language in the first place. The fact that I don’t need to choose which words to say makes me feel comfortable and at ease instead. I’m glad I don’t need to worry about anything when I’m having a drink with them.
I love the relationship I currently have with them.
T/N: Cha-Character development?! Or rather, we finally get to know about MC’s mind since he’s been like this before he got isekai-ed? It’s really confusing when you’re like MC. You like to be alone but on the other side, you’re prone to loneliness. Ahh~
