Chapter 56.3 : (Juno’s POV) Isekai’s Mi Amore Part 2
My name is Juno. I’m nothing but a humble adventurer living in the town of Resta. I am barely making ends meet.
I have a strange friend. His name is Keigo. For some reason, I couldn’t just leave him be. I ended up helping him in various ways in the beginning but recently, I’m the one who keeps on receiving his favor.
He lives between the town of Resta and a forest where strong monsters lurk. I often stop by his house to take a break from hunting. He’s handy, good at cooking, can make potions and good at doing weapon and armor maintenance too.
The nobleman from our town has caused a lot of trouble for Keigo. I’m really sorry about that. Technically speaking, he’s not the resident of this town so he shouldn’t have to follow the nobleman’s order but you really can’t reason with that nobleman.
Although Keigo can’t speak our words, he’s the type of a man who can understand the reason. I was relieved to see he had successfully avoided being glared at by that nobleman.
I am on good terms with the old man running the weapon shop at Resta, Margo and Sarasa, who’s working as a merchant. Sarasa, me and Elsa are childhood friends. Elsa is the daughter of the innkeeper where I stay.
To be honest, my first love was Sarasa. No, maybe it’s strange to say ‘was’? After all, my affections for her still stays the same. But Sarasa is a young woman from a prestigious family who has taken over her father’s family business as a merchant. On the other hand, I’m just an adventurer who could die at any given moment, just like a stray dog.
The two of us are simply too incompatible. So, I’ve decided to hide my love toward her. But it seems Keigo has somehow noticed my feelings. That guy is pretty sharp. He has keen eyes.. But nonetheless, he never said anything and just kept it to himself. He’s really a good guy.
It seems Sarasa is in love with that old man, Margo. I wonder if that thickheaded old man doesn’t notice it for real or he’s just pretending? I don’t want to ruin our current relationship and I don’t want to go out of my way to have an honorable defeat when I have 0 chance of success.
As long as I keep my love under wraps, no one will notice it. Everything will be alright.
That’s why… This is for the best.
….They said love is, sometimes it’s sweet, sometimes it’s painful but for me, all I ever experience is pain.
Good grief, love is really a troublesome thing.
T/N: THE ONE SARASA LOVES IS MARGO? (ʘᗩʘ’) I see…. So Sarasa likes buff soft men….
