The Healer, Laila’s Circumstances
「Hahhh~ Why did I enter a party like that, I wonder!」
After withdrawing from the hydra and finally returned to a safe place, I spat out all of my anger with a distorted face.
This place wasn’t the joint residence of the Sword of Lightning, but just a simple inn.
That was why, my emotional outburst should be heard by someone in the next door, a moment later, a sound of something falling came from the room next door.
Hearing that sound, I reflexively covered my mouth.
Apparently, I was too emotional and forgot this was an inn with a thin wall.
Once I noticed I became too emotional, I calmed myself down a bit.
「Ahh geez. I can’t calm down at all, this anger…」
But, my attempt was futile.
After all, just remembering the attitude of Margulus and Sarveria of Sword of Lightning made me want to scream wildly.
After that, even after they returned to the guild, Margulus and Sarveria didn’t say any word of apologies.
On the contrary, they started to insult Armia who tried to risk her life to save Margulus.
As far as I could see in the battle, Armia had considerable talent, however, she was still a child.
Even so, despite her age, she was quite active.
… However, until the end, Margulus and Sarveria kept putting the blame on Armia and even called her useless.
In spite of her condition where she was still affected by the hydra’s poison and clearly still looking ill.
I couldn’t stand it, I got angry at Margulus and Sarveria and then ran away, bringing Armia along with me.
… All they said was it was all Armia’s responsibility, they didn’t want to admit their fault at all.
Finally, with a condescending attitude, he said he would pardon Armia to end the conversation about her, and then he asked for me to cast 《Heal》 that would wipe out the fatigue they had today.
Certainly, 《Heal》 had the effect of recovering fatigue on top of increasing regenerative ability.
「But, there is no way I can remove all of their fatigue in one night!」
… But, what Margulus and Sarveria asked is not a simple 《Heal》 arent they? They were asking for 《Heal》 that has that kind of efficiency…
When I remembered about the nonsensical request they made, I screamed again.
…… But from the room next door, I wonder if she’s surprised by my voice and fell down, I heard the girl’s scream and a thud noise that calmed me down.
Apparently, she screamed again.
… I really did a bad thing to the girl next door.
She sounded like she was rolling around on the floor, maybe she hit her toes on the closet…
And while I listen to the noise, I sighed deeply.
「Hahhhh~… Why did I enter a party like that…」
Actually, I was an adventurer who just came to this Labyrinth city of Martat.
I used to be a member of a first-class party that was active in the capital, but I was about to be assaulted by the leader of that party and so I fled.
That was why, when I talked to the receptionist called Almast and was told there was a first-class party looking for a member, I was delighted.
I thought this was a miracle that rarely happened.
But what did I know after opening the lid…
Margulus and Sarveria, not only lacking in ability but also in personality.
Armia might become a first-class adventurer, but Margulus and Sarveria clearly lacking in character.
Moreover, when I complained, Almast told me that in this city, once you formally entered a party, you were not able to leave unless in rare circumstances, even after I protested with all my might.
It seemed Almast was the same kind of people like Margulus and Sarveria.
「Hahh~ I really can’t leave huh, this place is strange…」
Remembering that time, I was about to let out my anger again.
Really, compared to the adventurers in the capital, the adventurers here were all had a bad personality, even the receptionists were rotten.
If it would be like this all the time, I really tempted to just run away from this town.
「Seriously, how should I proceed…」
…… But now I was more worried about whether I could really leave this party.
That reason for that was the presence of the girl who slept beside me, Armia.
After I determined that I couldn’t leave her to Margulus and Sarveria, I brought her to the inn I was staying at to treat her.
I just couldn’t leave this girl alone.
「… I wonder what dream she currently has?」
Seeing Armia groaning from the temperature that was too hot, I was having that thought as I wiped the sweats on her forehead.
Apparently, there was no danger to her life, however, she was feverish from the fatigue and because she was weakened.
I might need to wipe her body from the sweats now so she doesn’t get a cold.
Thinking so, I went to get a new wet cloth.
However, I stopped my movement once I heard a word of apology escaped her mouth.
Armia’s face, who just apologized, looked full of regret.
— I have done something I couldn’t take back…… Raust-san, such a terrible thing…
Looking at her current face, I remembered what she said just before she lost her consciousness.
Armia repented of her action toward this person called Raust, until she lost her consciousness, she kept repeating the words of apology.
「Raust, that’s the name of the healer that took away the party property and ran away…」
I was told so by Margulus, but I don’t have any bad impression of Raust now.
Now that I know what kind of character Margulus is, I don’t believe any word from that man.
So I don’t think he’s a bad person, but for another reason, I can’t take him out of my mind.
In addition of Armia who repeatedly apologize, there are Margulus and Sarveria who demanded such an outrageous healing ability like it was a natural thing.
I can’t help but think that the reason for that is Raust.
「… Seriously, who is he?」
The words leaked from my mouth went to no one’s ears.
「Eh, what is Raust-sa……」
I thought so, but it actually entered the ears of the person next door, which stunned the girl.
The next moment, the girl who seemed stunned, seemed to get her foot tangled on something, the sounds of her falling hard to the floor could be heard.
「No, I didn’t really hear what she said, but what is there to surprise about…」
… This time, my words truly reached no one’s ears.
Couple of change
- Armast to Almast, I just think it’s more girly name this way.
- It’s much more clearer now that Margulus said that Raust take the party property instead of his own property before running away, the one in chapter 6 doesn’t have clear subject, fixed.
I also considering to change Armia’s name to Almia, but it’s fine either way, and I think the name already stuck in everyone’s head by now, so I will leave it
Also, I will take a couple of days to break, next chapter we will return to the usual Raust’s chapter, so I can take my time now
