It’s here!! The chapter everyone’s been waiting for!! Are you ready?!
Chapter 175 – Aria?
The woman coming over stopped right in front of me and gave me a look of contempt. The woman had a hair as blue as the sky and although she gave me scronful looks, here blue eyes before were full of kindness, with a face that everyone would say it’s beautifull and her well proportionated body was covered in a cleric’s robe. Before I was able to say something to her, she threw me some words.
“It has been a while Wazu. About two years? I immediately knew it was you by your ordinary face. Who would have thought that we would reunite in the Imperial Capital. And Naminissa being here means that you got my message and came over. Well it doesn’t matter if we met or not. What I want to tell Wazu is really simple. We promised when we were young to get married but, let’s just forget about that. I’ll be married with Hero-sama and will be happy. I don’t want you to be hanged on a verbal promise and have you lurking around me so let me be clear right now, don’t appear in front of me ever again. Haa~ I feel relieved now. I would be troubled if you were to trouble me later over this so I had to tell you clearly. A weight has been lift from my chest. I can now marry Hero-sama. I don’t need nor want your answer, just don’t get involved with me anymore.”
She ranted all this in one breath and her eyes returned to their kind shape.
“Then, have a good day and farewell…”
She added that, turned around and left. During that time we were left flabbergasted but suddenly, everyone besides Freud and me stood up from their seats and gave a killing intent that I hadn’t fell before. Mh? What’s up girls?
“What’s with that woman?! Blue hair and blue eyes, is that Aria?! I thought that she appeared suddenly and she came babbling like that!! I won’t forgive her!! I’ll cut her to pieces with my short sword right now!!”
“… Fufufu… fufufu… If is to that person, I don’t have to refrain myself and can exert all of my power on her… What should I do… Should I crush her with my barrier… Or should I instead cut her into pieces with my favourite knife…”
“It saddens me to have to kill a friend like this… But Aria is the one in the wrong so it cannot be helped… To talk like that to our Wazu… Do not expect me to go easy on you… As your friend, I will be sure to send you to hell…”
“Well now… I was thinking of trying to kill someone with the sword that Wazu gave me… And just the right enemy appeared, I should also test the armour and confront her with all I got.”
“… I’ll kill her… Even if I have to exterminate everyone in this capital I’ll kill her… I’ll show her… What it means to make an enemy out of us… I’ll make her taste it with her whole body…”
“You pig!! PIG!! I’ll kill you!! I’ll brutally kill you!! I’ll burn you with my whole magic power!! I’ll freeze you and smash you into pieces!! I’ll mince you to bits with my wind!! I’ll crush you with rocks!! I won’t leave even a speck of dust of you in this world!!”
“The nerve to talk to Otto-dono like that!! I’ll drag you through all the city!! Even if you ask for forgiveness I will not grant you so!! I’ll make you repent what you did!! I’ll tear your entrails the most gruesome way possible!!”
“””””””I’ll kill her!!”””””””
… You’re scary!! Eh? Why are you girls getting so vicious”
“Who was that now? Do you know her?”
When I ask that, everyones murderous eyes turn to me.
“””””””What do you mean who?! That’s Aria!!”””””””
And all of them said that in unison.
“Eh? No she isn’t. She certainly looks like her but she isn’t Aria.”
When I say that, the murderous feeling around the girls disperses and instead they get dumbfounded faces, and then Naminissa asks me.
“… Eh? That was not Aria?”
“No but, she has the same face as the Aria that we met that time in the Guildmaster room. Besides, Wazu-sama has not met Aria for the last two years, would it not be that after she grew a little, you do not recognize her anyore?”
“That could be true. Aria might have that face now. But that woman wasn’t Aria. I can’t explain it well but I can tell that she is not Aria.”
Seeing me having so much confidence, the girls got a little away from me and got into a circle and started whispering between them.
“Why can he be so sure?”
“Why would it be… It makes me frustrated…”
“But Wazu-sama said that she was not Aria.”
“Then that must be the truth.”
“… I feel like I lost.”
“Guh… I can feel Onii-chan and that sow’s conection… not!”
“Is it that there’s something that only Otto-dono understands…?”
“Ooi, I can hear you! There is no meaning in forming a circle!”
When I call out to the girls in their circle, they return to me a bitter smile.
“It seems that you are concerned with the bit only I understood but, even if people impersonating you would appear, I’m confident that I would be able to easily tell them appart.”
The girls feeling happy and with tinges of red in their faces start to fidget embarrassedly after hearing what I said. But suddenly Naminissa’s appearance stiffens as if realising something.
“Nevertheless that woman spoke to Wazu-sama like that and cannot be forgiven.”
Everyone else agrees from the bottom of their hearts and nod in agreement. I also recall those words directed to me.
“Mhh~ Now that I think about it, doesn’t bother me anymore… It might be that. I now have you all by my side.”
When I tell them what I think, the girls give broad smiles and come to hugh me tightly. Wait!! We are in public!! People are looking at us!! Let’s be moderate!!
“””””””We will never let go!!”””””””
The girls say that and then hugh me even tighter, and with my free hand I start patting everyone’s head to make them calm down. Afterwards we continued eating.
But where on earth would Aria be?
