I was trapped.
I've been to the elves' village many times since that day, but after our first meeting, they wouldn't even let me talk to them, they would just shoot arrows at me.
They were really trying to kill me.
I am a hero.
I decided it would be unwise to waste any more time with the Elves, so I opted to go ahead and focus on defeating one of the demon generals, Roiz!
Although we are already quite late.
So to shorten the travel time, we decided to ask the fairies for help.
Legend has it that heroes of the past received "fairy dust" and flew through the sky.
Then it occurred to me that I could try getting some.
We will still be far behind, but we will dramatically increase our speed.
I'm sure the fairies will bow to me as soon as they see me.
After all, I am the hero, and eventually I will become a legend.
...But the situation was completely not what I expected.
"Hey human, get the hell out of here!"
"Go back where you came from!"
They are all rude and spit on me every time they come near me.
In addition, they are quite strong in contrast to their appearance.
Lisa and Soara have already been knocked down and are lying on the ground.
I was doing all I could to protect myself.
"Damn it, don't come any closer, I'll kill you!"
"Hahaha, just try and see if you can, Human!"
"I'm the hero! You have to help me!"
"Stupid human ♪ Dirty human ♪ Human who claims to be a hero ♪"
"Stop singing! It's deafening!"
I wielded my sword.
I am not stupid.
I am justice itself.
I am the hero you should fear.
They are full of bullshit.
"Why won't they leave me alone?"
"Hero, go back the way you came. This is no place for you."
"Stop fooling around and give me fairy dust!"
The old man shook his head and said, "It's useless."
Immediately the fairies started throwing stones at us.
And they shouted, "Get out of here!"
My frustration was about to boil over.
I wanted to kill them all, but they were moving too fast for me to catch them.
I have no choice but to leave.
"Get up! We're getting out of here!"
"Where are we...?"
I woke them up with a kick each.
The attacks stopped, but the chorus of "get the hell out of here" continued.
Damn it, damn it, damn it, damn it!
Why doesn't anything work?
The world is against me!
What have I done to deserve this?
I can't help but feel frustrated.
After buying a horse, we hurried to the royal capital of Grigit.
What awaited us upon arrival was a situation I had already predicted.
"They did what?"
"Roiz was defeated by the Manyu Brigade."
I am amazed by the Queen's words.
Again, they beat me to it.
It all started when the dragon was defeated.
From that point on. My whole world fell apart.
To be more exact, from the moment I kicked Toru out of the party.
Don't tell me this is a punishment from God.
Perhaps it is the curse for receiving this title.
It's ridiculous, but very funny at the same time.
Thanks to you, all my plans, my life, everything is shattered.
I was going to be a hero, make women serve me, enjoy my position, fame and money, and finally marry the princess of Balseille and take control of the country.
Do you have any idea how hard it was to get here from that small town?
What went wrong?
What went wrong?
Why is everything going wrong?
I don't get it.
It is hard for me to think of what could be the cause.
"Sain-Dono, are you feeling well?"
"Excuse me, I'm feeling a little sick."
"I see. Thank you for the work you've done so far. Later there will be a discussion at the round table at this location, and we would be pleased with your presence."
I left the courtroom.
I joined Lisa and Soara, who were waiting outside, and crouched down on my knees out of sight.
"I'm the hero, it's supposed to work out for me."
"Sain, calm down."
"Lisa, do you really think I'm a hero?"
"Of course you are. You're the one who's going to save the world."
Lisa gives me a gentle hug.
That worked to calm my fluttering heart.
She stroked my head and my mind shut down.
Yes, I am the hero. The hero who will go down in history.
"I did the right thing in making you mine. You're too good for Toru."
"Fufu, thank you. I love you, Sain."
"Hey, don't just start flirting on your own, I'm here too!"
Thanks to Lisa, I feel like I have a clear head.
I feel very good.
If you think about it, there are always setbacks for heroes, right?
This may be an ordeal, but it is also a test to be overcome.
The glory I want awaits me.
Round table: Place where representatives from various countries, mainly human, meet.
Heroes have been introduced here for a long time and have had their names and faces remembered.
In addition, help is also requested to defeat the Demon King, so it is designated as a very important meeting.
On this occasion, representatives from five major countries are meeting:
Many people were seated at the round table.
I was standing behind King Balseilles, waiting to be called.
"-- By the way, it seems that you recently gave the adventurer of the Manyu Brigade the title of hero. However, rumors do not always spread correctly. How many of the rumors about them are actually true, King Armand?"
"Kuku, they are a truly remarkable bunch. They don't care about fame, and they always speak their minds. And half the rumors about them are true."
"It's unusual for that to be the case. I'm suddenly very interested."
"Then you should meet them in person, King Lastoria."
The conversation was monopolized by the Manyu Brigade.
I was irritated just by hearing that name.
I managed to suppress my overflowing murderous intent by gritting my teeth.
"They have been a great help to us at Grigit. They are as strong as the rumors say. They wiped out one of the six demon generals in just 3 days. It looks like they are planning to go to Greyfield soon."
"Are they going to Greyfield? Then I must meet them. Please tell us what they're like, Reina."
"Fufufu, as the name suggests. They enjoy travel, gourmet food, and meeting people everywhere. Grayfield has a lot of archaeological sites, they will surely enjoy them."
Enough of this. Don't talk about the Manyu Brigade in front of me.
It's disgusting. It's disgusting.
King Balseille taps his finger on the table.
"We must talk about what concerns us. This is not a meeting for small talk. It is about solving our biggest problem; the subjugation of the Demon King."
"You mean your boy? He hasn't done anything."
"But he will! He is the pride of Balseille, the greatest hero of all time!"
The king strikes a blow at the table.
The queen and the kings looked at me and King Balseille with cold eyes.
It's as if they were watching a fake hero.
Then King Armand interrupted him.
"We have to keep calm. It is an undeniable fact that he is a hero, so we simply have to cooperate, as usual. The Demon King hasn't started a full-scale invasion yet, probably because he hasn't gained enough power. I think it's the right time to attack."
Everyone nodded in agreement.
Exactly, after all, you have to trust me.
They just have to keep quiet and watch me work.
I will kill the Demon King as you wish.
I will show them that there is no point in waiting for the Manyu Brigade.
They were only given the title of hero.
Instead, I am the hero among heroes. The one who has the specialized job of fighting the Demon King.
It is not necessary to make a comparison.
That said, is Grayfield your next destination?
Does that mean they are here in Grigit.
Then we arrived just in time.
I'm going to go ahead to Grayfield and make an appearance worthy of a hero.
I couldn't do anything before because they were so many steps ahead of me.
To tell you the truth, I'd like to go take care of them right away, but right now I'm thirsty for results.
I want to be showered in praise.
First, I must be recognized for a great feat.
It's not too late after all.
Look at me, Manyu Brigade.
I'll show you how scary I can be.
