「err~, can I pass?, I’m not a hero.」
The place quieted down suddenly.
Daiki who understand the meaning of the words flustered and spoke to Souta.
「O-Oy, Konoe, what are you talking about? I’ll be troubled if you don’t help!」
「I feel bad to say this … but you did not know my status, the king and the minister should know that my title is 『Person Dragged in a Summon』.」
「eh, you are just dragged in?, does that mean you don’t have 『Hero』 title?」
「That’s right. My title is 『Person Dragged in a Summon』, occupation 『swordsman』, no magic, one skill 『one handed sword 3』, no unique skill, and no divine protection… and yet, you still want me to fight together with you?」
When Daiki saw the face of Gauss and the Minister, they nodded. There is no lie in what Souta says.
Actually, everything is a lie but only Souta knows it.
「Listening to the story, it seems like you guys have quite a status, also hero title. Compared to it I was just dragged in, the status also said the same. I have no power to fight the demons. Of course, I won’t asking you to take responsibility from dragging me in. Just, it’s enough if you let me travel freely without undertaking the demon kings subjugation.」
The minister groan, Daiki and two others showing dumbfounded face while watching Souta, Aki give a sharp gaze.
「Aye, I understand, it would be enough with four heroes, Souta you said? you ought to go on a trip, let’s give you some money as your immediate funds.」
The king showed his determination and judged from the calculation inside his mind.
Souta is guided into a separate room, Elizabeth rush over to Souta.
「Th-that … … I’m sorry, Umm… for getting you dragged in the summoning … ….」
For the disappearing voice, Souta answers without changing his expression.
「Don’t worry about it, I’m not really concerned for getting dragged in the summoning. You only have to be proud that you summoned four heroes.」
Listening to it, Elizabeth lowers her head and become teary-eyed.
Not saying anything more than that, Souta was guided away and the explanation continued to the Daiki and other.
This was the crossroads that separating him from their fate.
Next morning, I’m summoned to the north gate of the imperial capital.
There was almost no sign of life here, there were only bird’s chirping and two soldiers, and trying to go out was only Souta.
「Souta-dono, here are the funds that were told to hand over to by the king, and from the minister, black hair and black eyes are conspicuous, so don’t come close to the imperial capital for a while.」
Souta receives a small bag full of money.
Dressed in the clothes of the people of this world so as to not become conspicuous, while putting the money into the backpack, I look up to the front gate and give my thanks to the soldier.
「Keep up the good work, it was helpful, tell him I understand and won’t come near.」
「If you proceed along the road this way you will arrive at the forest, the road for people to use in the forest is maintained, and if you keep following the road, there will be a small village, and beyond that there is a city of adventurers so I think that it is better to aim there first.」
「Understand, well then.」
Raising my hand to the soldiers to say goodbye, I turn my back and walked on the road that continued from the imperial capital to the forest.
A few hours passed, I reached the entrance of the forest. A bit later the soldiers riding horse come to Souta.
Souta feels the face is familiar. It was the soldiers who handed money to Souta in front of the North gate.
「What? did you forget to hand over something?」
The soldiers don’t answer the question and attack me with spears from horseback with eyes filled with a thirst of blood.
I ward of the spear easily, but I have a doubt on how they are so different from some times ago and use 『Appraisal』 skills.
Skills: Sword Technique 2, Spearmanship 3
Skills: Sword Technique 3, Spearmanship 2
「Both of them have 2 skills, moreover, their status is 『brainwashed』.」
They unleash a barrage of attacks one after the other while Souta talking.
「It’s either the King, minister or one of the aide….. either way it’s a cruel thing to do, to use brainwashing to make someone do something against their will.」
Souta also expected that someone would attack after he got a bit away from the imperial capital, never thought it will be soldiers from before, moreover, it was unexpected that they came in brainwashed state, I feel angry at the way the country do thing.
「Gotta put you at ease now.」
While saying so, I grab the spears thrusted by the two at the same time and lift two people together with their spears.
I fire unchanted weak lightning magic after throwing them to the ground as it is, both of them fainted.
Their status is 『fainting』 and 『brainwashing』. I give them the Potion of Abnormal Status recovery that I take out from the backpack.
「U-uu.., what happened here?」
Rob remained fainted, but Eric woke up. the numbness probably still not completely cured, he has a hard time raising his body.
「Yo, It’s been several hours, do you remember anything?」
Looking at the face of Souta, Eric is surprised.
「So-Souta-dono, why are you here?」
「Oi oi, that should be my line, this is the forest that you told me.」
Eric looks around and tries to grasp the situation … however, he just woke up from brainwashing and fainting and the numbness still remains, his head movement is dull.
「I am sorry, my mind is a bit fuzzy… Can you tell me what happened?」
「No matter what I said, both of you have strange eyes and attacked me, furthermore, I manage to make both of you fainted, and then I give you guys Potion of Abnormal Status recovery. That’s all.」
Eric was surprised and forget to close his mouth.
「Looking at you right now, I understand you don’t have any intention to attack me. Do you remember what happened after you saw me off?」
Shaking his head, he starts recounting his vague memory.
「… After we see you off, I made a report to the Minister … If I’m not mistaken, after that … after that … after that I felt like I was being thanked by the court magician, Lexus-sama … … I can’t remember what happened after that.」
「That guy, I guess that Lexus somehow manipulate you guys with magic or skill.」
「Such thing …!!」
「If you go back without killing me you will be dealt in reverse.」
Eric with eyes wide open, can’t say anything. Blood drained from his face.
「The choice you can choose is killing me consciously and present the corpse, or don’t return to the kingdom and run away.」
「I don’t think that I can kill Souta-dono, even though I have attacked you, but I don’t want to do such a thing … but I have a family in the kingdom, I can’t just abandon them and run away.」
Souta thinks while scratching his head. The idea to help them came instantly.
「Then, it’s the third, you return and report that I’m already killed … as something to prove… My cell phone should do, this is not from this world. I will give back the money as well. Just add some blood to one of them.」
「Are you sure, Souta-dono … ….」
「Don’t worry about it, the phone isn’t usable anyway, and I will manage without gold somehow. I plan to hide for now but someday the fact that I’m still alive will comes to light, before that happen you should take your family and escape from the kingdom.」
「U-uu, I’m sorry, I will not forget your kindness.」
There is also a possibility they won’t believe the report because the brainwash is released, or they are killed anyway to seal their mouth, but souta purposely not saying it.
I say goodbye to Eric and go into the forest, but after a few minutes I went off the road and enters the bushes.
In order to shake off another pursuer if any, and to check the status and verify the item at the time of the previous summon that was stored in the Dimensional Storage.
After going for a while, I reach an open place, and sit on a stump nearby and check my ability.

「So appraisal 5 is like this, there will be too much information if I use level 10, so I should suppress it.」
Souta keeps it at this level because there was a time he is suffering from a headache due to the amount of information when using appraisal 8 in the last adventure.
「Even so, there are too many things to retort. First of all, there are too many divine protections, I don’t remember Dragon God and Katana God.」
Other than that, what was different from last time was level, title, Samurai, Dragon Magic, and Katana Art.
「The level is probably from defeating the Demon King. For samurai and katana art probably from what I learn in the old world. The dragon, title and the protection are … … I don’t understand. Even during optimization, unique skills …. It’s postponed.」
I decided to postpone what I do not understand even though I deeply thought about it, for now, I should check the items.
Even though it’s to be expected that there was no change in the item, it’s been four years since Souta was repatriated and re-summoned, so his memory is vague.
When checking the dimensional storage, there are a lot of items stored, thanks to my collector habit.
