Onee-chan's InfluenceBookmark here

"Graaa!"Bookmark here

The bear faced me.Bookmark here

I was at close range because I was watching, but I still did it like a total idiot.Bookmark here

Since I did it, I decided to just do it and stick until the end.Bookmark here

"Run you three! I'll lure him and try not to die until you get out of range!"Bookmark here

They looked at me when I shouted.Bookmark here

I was perfectly visible because of the position of the moon.Bookmark here

It shown on me revealing my face to them and the Giga bear.Bookmark here

But I didn't care if the Giga Bear sees me or not anymore. Because the Giga bear can smell the one who attacked him anyway.Bookmark here

I ran away at full speed.Bookmark here

I had a head start because the Giga bear had to reposition himself and went into chasing mode.Bookmark here

I can run very fast now because of how I trained myself every night.Bookmark here

The bear then chased me and I felt the ground slightly vibrate.Bookmark here

"Gaaah! I'm a big Idiooooooot!"Bookmark here

As I ran I shouted at my own frustration towards myself.Bookmark here

After that I tried to calm down my mental state and focused on thinking how to survive this.Bookmark here

I remembered the thick layer strings that I made before.Bookmark here

"It's my last chance of surival!"Bookmark here

That area was close so I ran to it at full speed.Bookmark here

As I ran the bear got closer and closer behind me.Bookmark here

When I was within range it suddenly ran on twos preparing to attack.Bookmark here

"Why the hell is this bear so flexible!"Bookmark here

I ran fast and was able to make it to the thick strings.Bookmark here

I jumped over it.Bookmark here

"If this doesn't work, I'll surely die."Bookmark here

I looked behind while running.Bookmark here

The bear got blocked by the thick strings but the nails got removed.Bookmark here

But because of the sudden change in momentum the bear fell and rolled a few feet, making him fall on his back. When this happens to a Mini Bear, it takes time before they stand up again. This must be the same with the Giga Bear.Bookmark here

"What luck!"Bookmark here

I ran at full speed until I was out of range.Bookmark here

"Haaa... I can't believe I survived that..."Bookmark here

After walking a distance after leaving the bear, I relaxed and rested almost out of breath, sitting behind a shadow of a tree for concealment.Bookmark here

I read in the books that Giga bears have opposite behaviors with the mini bear.Bookmark here

They are aggressive when engaged, but when the target goes out of range, if stops chasing. Unlike mini bears who would chase you towards the end of the world.Bookmark here

But there was also something bugging me.Bookmark here

Why is there a Giga bear here? Based on the most books I read, the rate Mini bears become Giga bears in this area are at least every 30 years, I just saw a Giga bear 3 years ago, why is there a Giga bear here now?Bookmark here

As I was thinking I saw three figures that looked like they were finding something.Bookmark here

Why the hell are they here?Bookmark here

"Where is that person?"Bookmark here

"Cry-sama! It's dangerous to be here, why won't you come back to safety!"Bookmark here

"Pallie-chan! We have to find that person and help him!"Bookmark here

"We will be able to help him if we report it to the adventurer's guild! Even if we find him, we will not be able to deal with the Giga Bear!"Bookmark here

I feel sorry for you Pallie-chan.Bookmark here

The things she said were the right decisions to make.Bookmark here

It must be hard taking care of children.Bookmark here

I am concealed in a shadow of a tree that monsters won't even detect me.Bookmark here

Having a princess in my favor might be good but being involved with royalty gains more risks than advantages.Bookmark here

"Oh, I see someone!"Bookmark here

The one who said that was Cry.Bookmark here

I'm so stupid, I forgot Moon-clan members can also see things in the dark.Bookmark here

But they only see silhouettes from what I read, so I can probably feign ignorance.Bookmark here

As they come near me I prepared myself.Bookmark here

Well... time to get involved in something troublesome.Bookmark here

The princess with glowing white eyes spoke to me.Bookmark here

"Ummm... are you the one that saved us?"Bookmark here

Should I say 'Yes'? Of course not. I don't want to get involved.Bookmark here

"What are you talking about."Bookmark here

"Ummmmm..."Bookmark here

For some reason she was fidgeting with flushed cheeksBookmark here

The other two came with their eyes glowing with blue and green eyes.Bookmark here

"I think Cry-chan found Yuu-chan!" (Yuu-chan from Yuusha-chan(Hero-chan)Bookmark here

"Hello, thank you for saving us from earlier... But how did you run away from the Giga bear?"Bookmark here

"I don't know what you're talking about..."Bookmark here

Pallie and Heallie looked at each other.Bookmark here

"He said he was not the one who saved us Cry-sama."Bookmark here

"But he looks exactly as the person who saved us."Bookmark here

Pallie and Heallie looked at each other again, then Pallie stepped forward.Bookmark here

"Umm, could I request to let us see your face?"Bookmark here

"I'm telling you I'm not that person."Bookmark here

"But Cry-chan said that you looked like him!"Bookmark here

"How can she even tell that if you can't even see my face..."Bookmark here

Pallie looked confused then stepped forward.Bookmark here

"Umm... you know that our princess can completely see in the dark right?"Bookmark here

What the hell? The books didn't say royalty can completely see in the dark. Bookmark here

I should've done more research on the Moonclan if I knew that this would happen.Bookmark here

The princess spoke.Bookmark here

"But... still something is wrong."Bookmark here

"What is it Cry-chan?Bookmark here

"His eyes are not glowing..."Bookmark here

"What? How can that be?"Bookmark here

How can that be? obviously because I'm not from the moonclan.Bookmark here

Heallie got went near me then grabbed my arm.Bookmark here

"What a shy Yuu-chan!"Bookmark here

She pulled me into the moonlight.Bookmark here

""?!""Bookmark here

They were surprised.Bookmark here

"So he really is Yuu-chan!"Bookmark here

Ahhh.... goodbye my peaceful life...Bookmark here

"But why are your eyes not glowing?"Bookmark here

Why the hell are they asking me that question?Bookmark here

"Why are you asking that question?"Bookmark here

"We'll normally, our eyes glow at night right?"Bookmark here

"Don't you know that only you Moonclansmen are the only ones whose eyes glow in the dark?"Bookmark here

The three of them looked confused.Bookmark here

"Based on what you're saying is... you're not a Moon Clansmen?"Bookmark here

Ohhhhh... I forgot. I have black hair... they might've thought I was a Moon clansmen.Bookmark here

"You thought I was one? I have black hair but I'm not a Moon clansmen."Bookmark here

"Wait, you're not? and based on what you look like... Don't tell me Yuu-chan is pure human?!"Bookmark here

Why is she surprised? Are people with black hair or black eyes really rare? I mean... I saw one girl with them too, a few years ago.Bookmark here

In any case, my answer for her question is...Bookmark here

"Well, I don't know."Bookmark here

"Huh? Why?"Bookmark here

As Pallie ask this question, I know where this is headed, it's dangerous here so don't want to explain everything about me not knowing my race, that will take long.Bookmark here

"I'm lazy to explain. But if you ask around town about me, you would probably find out."Bookmark here

"Is that so?..."Bookmark here

She closed her eyes looking deep in thought and nodded to herself.Bookmark here

Pallie bowed her head.Bookmark here

"I know this is late and we have been rude for taking so long but... Thank you very much for saving us."Bookmark here

"Thanks a lot Yuu-chan!"Bookmark here

"Thanks my Yuusha."Bookmark here

It seems like Pallie is a well-manered person, Heallie is a very cheerful kid.Bookmark here

Cry was also a cheerful kid based on what I've seen before, but now she seems normal, maybe to act more like a princess in front of strangers.Bookmark here

"Oh, we haven't introduced ourselves... I'm Pallie OceanMoon, Royal knight of the moon."Bookmark here

"I'm Heallie BrightMoon! Also a Royal knight of the moon. You can call me Heallie-chan!"Bookmark here

"I'm Cry Moon, second princess of the moon."Bookmark here

Hearing this, I remember that Moonclan members have names that they pass down through their families from their mothers.Bookmark here

"Why is a princess here on Quina? Isn't your country far away?"Bookmark here

"We only snuck out because one of our friend snuck us out. We decided to only go out at night so we cannot be a burden to her."Bookmark here

"And I'm the second princess... Only Onee-chan who is the first princess is treated differently in us siblings, me and the first prince are treated normally."Bookmark here

"Won't there be people trying to kidnap you then ask for ransom from the royal family or something?"Bookmark here

"Even if I'm from the royal family, I'm still an adventurer..."Bookmark here

So the only one getting special treatment are the Queen and the one who will inherit the throne huh?Bookmark here

"My Yuusha, can I ask, what is your name?"Bookmark here

"Well my name is....Nameless."Bookmark here

"Nameless?"Bookmark here

The princess then tilted her head confused.Bookmark here

Again, if I explain, this will take long.Bookmark here

"You can ask people around the town about it."Bookmark here

"Yuu-chan! Why are you so shy?!"Bookmark here

"Heallie! Don't be rude!"Bookmark here

Pallie-chan thanks for saving me from this kid.Bookmark here

"Hmpf!"Bookmark here

When Heallie crossed her hands, pouted, then turned her head around, it looked so cute.Bookmark here

"So cute..."Bookmark here

"?!"Bookmark here

I don't know why I said that, but the moment I saw it. I knew that it was the feeling of seeing something 'cute'.Bookmark here

The princess looked at me surprised then Heallie turned to me.Bookmark here

"Cute? Thanks Yuu-chan!"Bookmark here

I don't know, but she really was cute! Maybe this was the reason Onee-chan was always telling us to call her onee-chan?Bookmark here

......Bookmark here

...I'll try it too!Bookmark here

"Umm.... Can you call me onii-chan?"Bookmark here

""?!""Bookmark here

The Princess looked shocked when she heard, looking like the world ended.Bookmark here

But why the hell is Pallie looking at me like that?Bookmark here

Pallie was looking at me like I'm the most disgusting person in the world.Bookmark here

What happened to the well mannered Pallie?Bookmark here

"Hmm... then... Onii-chan!"Bookmark here

Ahhh that feel so cute! I want to hug her!Bookmark here

"So cute... I want to hug her!"Bookmark here

"Hahaha! I love you too onii-chan!"Bookmark here

She then hugged me.Bookmark here

She was so cute.

I patted her head with my right hand while hugging it with my other hand.Bookmark here

I think I can understand Onee-chan a little now.Bookmark here

While I did this the princess was shaking looking like she lost a game or something.Bookmark here

And Pallie was still looking at me like I'm the most disgusting person in the world.Bookmark here

The princess walked towards us and she looked like an animal wanting something.Bookmark here

"......"Bookmark here

"......Onii-chan, can Cry-chan call you onii-chan too?"Bookmark here

"No way."Bookmark here

*Brakes*Bookmark here

""?!""Bookmark here

Heallie and Pallie looked surprised and the princess looked like something broke inside of her.Bookmark here

"Why?! Onii-chan!"Bookmark here

"I don't want to be involved with royalty."Bookmark here

"Don't you care about Cry-chan's feelings?!"Bookmark here

"You're the only one I need."Bookmark here

"Eh?! Hehehe onii-chan you..."Bookmark here

"Heallie?!"Bookmark here

Pallie was shocked and Heallie looked comfortable when I patted her head while she hugged me... so cute.Bookmark here

The Princess looked like she was going disappear any moment.Bookmark here

"Cry-sama! please get a hold of yourself!"Bookmark here

Pallie was holding the Princess in her shoulders while shaking her.Bookmark here

"Sorry, but Heallie is the only person I need, shoo* shoo*""Bookmark here

"Heeheehee... Onii-chan..."Bookmark here

The princess looked like she is about to burst. Then looked at us with her eyebrows in a v shape and her eyes with tears on the side. ThenBookmark here

"Shu-shut up! One day, I will, I will force you to marry me!"Bookmark here

"No, I will marry, Heallie."Bookmark here

""?!""Bookmark here

Both Pallie and the princess looked shockedBookmark here

"Onii-chan! I love you so much! Let's have many kids!"Bookmark here

"Okay then, but... how do you make kids anyway?Bookmark here

"Hmmmm I don't know... Pallie-chan do you know?"Bookmark here

Pallie became red.Bookmark here

"D-D-D-Don't ask me!!!"Bookmark here

Why did she become red all of the sudden?Bookmark here

By the way, in the future when I asked this to the Berserker she suddenly banned me from reading anything about it, then she filtered the shelves with all books about it and put it on a secure place that has age confirming crystal that only non-minors can access.Bookmark here

The Princess gritted her teeth.Bookmark here

"I will force you to marry me!"Bookmark here

"Finally showing the true colors of a selfish princess huh? As I thought, your act before was fake! I was right to deny you!"Bookmark here

"Grrrrrr!"Bookmark here

I felt a very small vibration.Bookmark here

I looked at Pallie seriously.Bookmark here

"Let's go back, danger is coming."Bookmark here

"What? How do you know?"Bookmark here

"The Giga bear is near, I feel its presence we better go back before it reaches our range."Bookmark here

"You only want to escape!"Bookmark here

Ignoring the princess, I looked at Pallie with a more serious face then she replied with a nod.Bookmark here

"Cry-sama... let's go now, it's dangerous here."Bookmark here

"But!"Bookmark here

"It's okay, let's meet again tomorrow, it's late as well... we have to go back"Bookmark here

"Then let's meet up during night time, I'm also busy during the day, meet me by the river on the northeast corner outside the walls at 7:30."Bookmark here

"But!"Bookmark here

"Cry-sama!"Bookmark here

Pallie scolded the princess.Bookmark here

"O-Okay."Bookmark here

The princess answered in a quiet voice.Bookmark here

It was like a mother scolding a child.Bookmark here

There was also something I almost forgot to tell themBookmark here

"Don't tell people that you met me outside."Bookmark here

"Why?"Bookmark here

"I'll explain tomorrow, I'll be going through a different path. I can't go back through the front gate."Bookmark here

"Why?"Bookmark here

"I'll also explain tomorrow, there's no time.... Goodbye Heallie-chan!"Bookmark here

"Goodbye Onii-chan!"Bookmark here

I released Heallie who I was hugging all this time.Bookmark here

I snuck back to town, then did my daily routine, then slept.Bookmark here

It was morning and I was helping in putting up the shop.Bookmark here

"Center-chan, don't you want to go to school?"Bookmark here

"Why? It seems like a waste of time."Bookmark here

"It's fun you know? You get to hang out with friends!"Bookmark here

How will that even benefit me? I'm not interested in people I don't care about.Bookmark here

"Don't you go to school to study?"Bookmark here

"There's no need to study, it's so easy!"Bookmark here

So I don't probably need it.Bookmark here

"So you go to improve your communication skills?"Bookmark here

"Hmmm... If that means having fun with friends then yup!"Bookmark here

Knowing her, she must have a lot of friends.Bookmark here

"Speaking of which, I read that you do battles in school to practice beating monsters."Bookmark here

"Yep, though it isn't required."Bookmark here

The school in Quina is school in which you learn general knowledge, they also teach swordsman class training but they don't require it to students.Bookmark here

In school, students lean their practice towards their desired class to have bonus skills and have higher starting stats.Bookmark here

"How do you practice it?"Bookmark here

"Well, there is this 'Sphere' that came from the capital, it makes artificial monsters and as well as gives the HP system temporarily to participants."Bookmark here

"The HP system onl? no physical enchantments?"Bookmark here

"No, they said that the machine can only handle the artificial monsters, and make the HP system available even for non adventurers as long as they are within the area. The artificial monsters created are only up to 15, but there was also an option to summon a monster you previously defeated."Bookmark here

"Level 15? Can non-adventurers even defeat that?"Bookmark here

"In our school, even 14 year old students find it a hard time to kill level 10 monsters."Bookmark here

"You mean, Giatoads?"Bookmark here

"Yes though, in history there was only one person who did it in another city, they said he became a 'Devil' after he became stronger as an adventurer."Bookmark here

"A 'Devil'?"Bookmark here

"I don't know, they are myths made by adventurers, they said that there are seven 'Devils' that appear from time to time."Bookmark here

"Myths huh? I never read anything about that."Bookmark here

"Yes, that was one of the most mysterious myths, if it was a widespread rumor, then it should be at least in any records or at least have an effect on culture, right?"Bookmark here

"That's definitely weird."Bookmark here

Seven 'Devils' huh? Sounds like something from a fairy tale.Bookmark here

"Nee-chan can sometimes talk seriously huh?"Bookmark here

"I have fun when talking about myths and fairy tales and that stuff! It brings flavor to the history!"Bookmark here

"Hahaha."Bookmark here

"Hey, why did you call me Nee-chan just now!, it's not that I mind because little brothers mostly say it that way, but I want you calling me Onee-chan!"Bookmark here

I suddenly got reminded of Heallie, it really felt good when she called me Onii-chan and she was so cute, maybe I'll try what she did to me to Onee-chan.Bookmark here

"Fine, then."Bookmark here

I hugged Onee-chan.Bookmark here

"Eh?! Center-chan?"Bookmark here

I looked up to her face and smiled copying Heallie.Bookmark here

"I love you, Onee-chan!"Bookmark here

Onee-chan suddenly made a massive nosebleed and fell to the ground.Bookmark here

"Onee-chan?!"Bookmark here

"....Gochishousama..." (Thanks for the Food) Bookmark here

After that, I never repeated copying what Heallie did ever again.Bookmark here

I went to the library at 10:00amBookmark here

I got a book from the shelves, and went to the counter.Bookmark here

There, I saw the berserker readingBookmark here

She is wearing white gloves, the one they use in the clinic.Bookmark here

"Acchoo!"Bookmark here

"So even Berserkers get sick."Bookmark here

She ignored what I said and just continued reading.Bookmark here

"Hey? Are you going to beat someone up?"Bookmark here

"Huh? Why did ask that?"Bookmark here

"Berserkers only wear gloves beat people up right?"Bookmark here

"Why do you always treat me like I'm violent?"Bookmark here

"You made me faint the first time we talked to each other you know?"Bookmark here

"It was all your fault."Bookmark here

"Anyway, what's with the boxing gloves?"Bookmark here

"These aren't even boxing gloves, My hand is having an allergic reaction, so I have to wear it until it's cured."Bookmark here

"Oh, is that so?"Bookmark here

She also looked like she had a cold, so I should probably lessen the teasing today... why won't she just stay at home? is she that much addicted to reading?Bookmark here

I opened the book 'Specialty Schools' and started reading.Bookmark here

[Some schools lean on teaching a specific class for more focused training. There are schools for Swordsman training, Archer training, Scout training, Alchemist training, and Crafter training. Priests and Magicians are special cases, since non-adventurers can't use magic, Priests learn Holy teachings and Magicians focus on intensive studying to increase their starting 'Int' stat when they become adventurers, and just balance 'Dex' after they become adventurers.]Bookmark here

I learned somewhere that Dex is needed to be balanced with Int to have optimal power and optimal casting speed for using magic.Bookmark here

I continued reading.Bookmark here

[Specialty schools have classified different grades depending on how high the quality of teaching is, the capital city, Anima, have all of the specialty schools and are Grade A schools. There are also entire towns that only focus on one of the six classes and they have Grade S schools for that class]Bookmark here

I remember that the school in Quina is a Grade S school for General knowledge which is useful for citizens and adventurers. Though their class training is only Grade A swordsman class, meaning that it's all up to the student's personal training outside of school if they really want to specialize in a class.Bookmark here

I read the book until I finished it and returned it to the shelf.Bookmark here

After reading it I got another one... I got curious of how the <Taunt> skill works because of what Pallie said yesterday.Bookmark here

[The Hate System]Bookmark here

The most important part is.Bookmark here

[—The 'Hate System' is something about who the monster will attack. Monsters will attack the person with the most 'Hate'. 'Hate' increases when a person deals damage to a monster or uses a skill that increases it like <Taunt>.—]Bookmark here

I wonder if I'm going to use this later? This will probably be a good way to devise strategies when in a party.Bookmark here

I got another book, it's because I saw elemental magic yesterday.Bookmark here

[Elements and its effects]Bookmark here

I started reading it.Bookmark here

[Magic, Weapons, and other things can have an element. Magicians Magic have elements. Certain adventurers are able to change the element of the weapon. The 'No Element' element is 'Neutral'.Bookmark here

There are 8 Elements, Fire, Water, Earth, Wind, Lightning, Ice, Light, and Darkness.Bookmark here

The Fire Element has the strongest attack power, and has the chance to burn enemies.Bookmark here

The Water Element is considered as utility or defense element, it takes out fire, weakens or hardens earth, improves lightning damage, improves freezing chance, etc.Bookmark here

The Earth Element is used as utility and damage element. It also increases blunt damage to enemies. It has the chance to stun enemies.Bookmark here

Wind Element is used as damage and speed element. It also increases slicing damage to enemies. Wind Magic's speed is also improved by the dex stat.Bookmark here

Lightning Magic is the second fastest element and the second strongest attack power. It has a chance to shock enemies.Bookmark here

Ice Magic is used as a disabling element. It slows down enemies and also has a chance to freeze them.Bookmark here

Light is the fastest element. It has a chance to blind enemies. The Light element can easily pierce the dark element.Bookmark here

Dark is mostly used for blocking enemy vision or hiding oneself. It has a chance to blind enemies. The Dark Element can easily pierce the light element.]Bookmark here

Wait, so Light and Dark can pierce each other? what?.... well, I guess I'll just have to see it for myself sometime later.Bookmark here

I returned the book to the shelf, when I returned it, I saw Xeline reading at a fast pace as usual.Bookmark here

I thought 'Why hasn't he won our battle even once yet if she's that fast when reading?'Bookmark here

I ignored her and got another book, it's about magic.Bookmark here

I got the book 'Basic knowledge on Magic'.Bookmark here

I went back to the counter and sat down.Bookmark here

[Magic power is determined by the 'Int' stat and the casting speed is determined by the 'Dex' stat. There should also be a balance between them because the higher the gap your 'Int' have to your 'Dex' the longer you have the longer you have to cast magic.]Bookmark here

I also learned somewhere before that the two advance classes for Magicians have their own stat specialties. Most great Magicians build Higher 'Int' in the balance since their magic consume more mana with its high damage. And scholars have Higher 'Dex' in the balance to focus on speed casting flexible magic that has lower mana usage.Bookmark here

Though, some of them do unique builds, most of them are not 'Optimal'.Bookmark here

I saw a book beside me that says 'Moon kingdom Merchandises'Bookmark here

I remembered the Moonclansmen yesterday and opened the book.Bookmark here

I read some items, there were some amazing merchandises but there was something that caught my eye.Bookmark here

It's the 'Clear Moon', a crystal that allows the user to see clearly, like a replacement of the glasses.Bookmark here

I thought that maybe I should ask them for one, and give it to the berserker as payment for the free admission and borrowing of books.Bookmark here

I looked at the time and it's almost lunch time.Bookmark here

I went to the bench to eat lunch. Bookmark here

After eating I did my daily routine at the woodworking shop then went to the blacksmith.Bookmark here

I went to the blacksmith shop to practice smithing.Bookmark here

I continued to work on my sharp gauntlets and whenever the blacksmith see me, he says Bookmark here

"Making equipment from a fantasy, is one of the best times when being a blacksmith, keep your heat up! Flame Boy!"Bookmark here

I am making this 'fantasy' equipment to be able to climb trees faster though.Bookmark here

After the day I completed the gauntlets. I made it a little loose so that I can use it for at least a few years while I grow up.Bookmark here

I put a belt lock on it on the inside so it will lock in my small hand.Bookmark here

After that I went then went to the pharmacy at 6:00pm.Bookmark here

"Hello Center-chan!"Bookmark here

"I'll be in your care again Onee-chan."Bookmark here

"Can you repeat what you did for me a while ago please?"Bookmark here

"I won't, you'll die."Bookmark here

"Pleaseeee??"Bookmark here

I won't do it, but it's hard to deal with Onee-chan so I'll make an excuse.Bookmark here

"If I did it over and over again, it won't feel special anymore wont it?"Bookmark here

"Buuu~ not really..."Bookmark here

"I want to do special things for Onee-chan, so will you please let me go this time?"Bookmark here

"Kyaaah! If you're like that then its fine!"Bookmark here

*Thud* *Thud* *Thud* *Thud*Bookmark here

Xeline rushed to the back.Bookmark here

Something seems off when I saw her, Since Onee-chan was focused on something else she didn't see her.Bookmark here

Onee-chan thought me how to make Antidotes properly.Bookmark here

"Center-chan, wait for it to bubble, wait for 3.5 seconds then put the--"Bookmark here

For making potions, it should be as accurate as possible for it to be effective. Onee-chan mentioned that in Xeline's second try, she made an antidote that can cure a poison from a level 80 monster.Bookmark here

That crazy girl is a hell of a monster.Bookmark here

Xeline went out the back and started to go to the stairs.Bookmark here

"Isn't there something wrong with the brat?"Bookmark here

"Oh? Hehehe... are you worried? Can you please check on her Center-chan. I'll finish this one up first."Bookmark here

I want to say 'don't want to' but it's hard to deal with Onee-chan so I just went to her.Bookmark here

"Hey brat, give me some of those."Bookmark here

"I don't need your help."Bookmark here

"I don't care about you, Onee-chan just told me to help you."Bookmark here

"Hmpf."Bookmark here

I got some of the load she's carrying and she went up the stairs.Bookmark here

I followed behind her and Onee-chan was glancing backwards with a happy face.Bookmark here

A few moments later Xeline lost balance and I had to catch her from behind.Bookmark here

Because of this the boxes I was holding fell to the stairs.Bookmark here

"Kyaaaaaaa!!"Bookmark here

Onee-chan squealed happily again.Bookmark here

"Oi brat, you're so lame."Bookmark here

"Shut up kid, why did you drop my materials?"Bookmark here

I noticed that something was wrong with her.Bookmark here

I placed my right hand to her forehead.Bookmark here

"Kyaaaaaaaaaa!"Bookmark here

Onee-chan seems to be enjoying herselfBookmark here

"What are you doing?"Bookmark here

"You have a fever, I thought stupid people don't get sick?"Bookmark here

"Shut up, don't tell onee-chan, I don't want her to get worried."Bookmark here

"Then, why don't you move and walk upstairs?"Bookmark here

"I can't move, carry me upstairs first then just retrieve the materials later."Bookmark here

"I don't want to carry you."Bookmark here

"Do you want to deal with onee-chan?"Bookmark here

"....."Bookmark here

I then carried Xeline on a princess carry, she was so light... or was I just too strong for hunting monster all these years?Bookmark here

"Kyaaaaaaa! Kyaaaa!"Bookmark here

"Why is Onee-chan so happy?"Bookmark here

"I don't know, don't ask and just go upstairs, why are you so slow?"Bookmark here

"Should I just drop you here?"Bookmark here

"Don't drop me you idiot."Bookmark here

We then went upstairs and I carried her to her room.Bookmark here

This is the first time I entered her room, it was full of equipments for making potions, and as well as shelves with potions that I haven't seen before. There was also a door on the left side, with a name tag that says 'Creation Room' with a lab gown hanging on the side.Bookmark here

Maybe that's where she makes potions?Bookmark here

I then laid her down on a pink bed.Bookmark here

"Hey kid, get the materials you left downstairs."Bookmark here

"Got it, Onee-sama."Bookmark here

I still call her Onee-sama because I'm currently the loser of our bet.Bookmark here

"So you can be obedient sometimes huh?"Bookmark here

I wanted to respond to her, but I have better plans.Bookmark here

I then went downstairs and got the materials.Bookmark here

Then—Bookmark here

*Thud* *Thud* *Thud* Open.Bookmark here

"Xeline-chan you're sick?!"Bookmark here

Onee-chan then went to Xeline and touched her forehead.Bookmark here

"Why didn't you tell me?!"Bookmark here

I was behind Onee-chan holding the box of materials.Bookmark here

Xeline looked at me.Bookmark here

She looked at me with a pissed-off face like saying 'Why you!!!!'.Bookmark here

I looked at her with an evil grin on my face.Bookmark here

"Center-chan, go get a bucket of water!"Bookmark here

I slowly walked to the door.Bookmark here

"Center-chan, why are you so calm! Go faster!"Bookmark here

"Y-yes!"Bookmark here

I ran downstairs to get a bucket of water.Bookmark here

Onee-chan is overeacting... it's just a fever.Bookmark here

Maybe she got it from that Berserker? Berserkers are even able to do biological warfare huh?Bookmark here

I went upstairs and went inside Xeline's room.Bookmark here

"Hurry up Center-chan!"Bookmark here

"Y-Yes!"Bookmark here

I put the bucket beside Onee-chan.Bookmark here

"I'll wipe of your sweat first, and change your clothes Xeline-chan! Sit here!"Bookmark here

Xeline sat beside the edge of the bed, then Onee-chan looked at me.Bookmark here

"Center-chan?"Bookmark here

"What?"Bookmark here

"You want to stay?"Bookmark here

"Why?"Bookmark here

"Please get out for a little while."Bookmark here

"...Okay."Bookmark here

I just went out while wondering why she wanted me to get out.Bookmark here

I noticed someone went into the shop, and it was Sensei.Bookmark here

Sensei went in the shop, looked around, went upstairs and saw me.Bookmark here

"Why is no one manning the shop?"Bookmark here

"Well..."Bookmark here

I looked at the door then Sensei entered it.Bookmark here

Onee-chan is in front of Xeline who was naked, and was drying her with a towel.Bookmark here

Onee-chan looked at Sensei with tears on the edges of her eyes.Bookmark here

"Mama... Xeline is... Xeline is..."Bookmark here

Sensei went beside Xeline and touched her forehead.Bookmark here

"Hmm a fever huh?"Bookmark here

"Mama! Why are you so relaxed!"Bookmark here

"You're overreacting Roxelle..."Bookmark here

Sensei got the towel Onee-chan was holding and continued drying Xeline who was not wearing any clothes.Bookmark here

Onee-chan looked at my direction.Bookmark here

"Center-chan?!"Bookmark here

"Why?"Bookmark here

"Get out!!"Bookmark here

"Huh? Why?... Okay okay!"Bookmark here

Onee-chan glared at me and I went outside.Bookmark here

This is the first time Onee-chan glared at me like that, why was she angry?Bookmark here

After a few seconds, the door opened again, and Onee-chan was there standing.Bookmark here

"Center-chan, I can't believe that you were taking advantage of that situation to look at her naked body."Bookmark here

"Huh?"Bookmark here

"Roxelle, some kids don't learn things about that until they are grown up, maybe Nameless-kun is that kind of kid."Bookmark here

"Ohhhh.... So Center-chan is just innocent? That's just so cute!"Bookmark here

I have no idea what they are talking about.Bookmark here

I entered the room and looked at Xeline, she is now lying in bed tucked with a wet towel on her forehead, her face was flushed and she was sweating.Bookmark here

"Hmmm, I'll be the one to take care of her... you two go back downstairs, the shop is still open you know?"Bookmark here

"But Mama! What about Xeline-chan!"Bookmark here

"Don't worry, I'll take care of her."Bookmark here

"...But!"Bookmark here

"If you stay here, then she won't be able to rest properly."Bookmark here

"...Okay."Bookmark here

As she said that we went towards the door.Bookmark here

"Bye Xeline-chan! Please dont die!"Bookmark here

"Roxelle... you're over reacting."Bookmark here

"Bye, Onee-chan..."Bookmark here

When Onee-chan went downstairs Sensei looked at Xeline.Bookmark here

I also looked at Xeline.Bookmark here

She looked back at me.Bookmark here

I had another evil grin then placed my right thumb to the left side of my neck and run it to the right side, like cutting of my head like telling her 'Die!'Bookmark here

She looked so pissed off when she saw this, and looked like she was about to burst out of anger.Bookmark here

Victory.Bookmark here

When Sensei looked back I already went out.Bookmark here

After 30 minutes sensei went down the stairs.Bookmark here

"Mama?! What are you doing here! What about Xeline-chan!"Bookmark here

"She is sleeping."Bookmark here

"What if she dies!"Bookmark here

"She needs to rest... we shouldn't disturb her.Bookmark here

"But!"Bookmark here

"Roxelle."Bookmark here

"......."Bookmark here

"Fine... you can go beside her, but you have to keep quiet and not touch her, you just need to watch over her, got it?"Bookmark here

"Okay mama! I won't do anything that would bring harm to my Xeline-chan!"Bookmark here

Nee-chan walked upstairs, went in Xeline's room, and slowly closed the door.Bookmark here

When 7:00 came we closed the shop.Bookmark here

When I was about to leave I looked up the stairs.Bookmark here

"........"Bookmark here

"Don't worry Nameless-kun, Xeline-chan will be okay."Bookmark here

"I'm not worried about her."Bookmark here

"Is that so?"Bookmark here

When Sensei said this she was smiling a happy smile.Bookmark here

Why did I look upstairs though?Bookmark here

"We'll take care of her, you can go out now Nameless-kun."Bookmark here

I remembered that I have some people to meet today at 7:30.Bookmark here

"Okay, bye Sensei."Bookmark here

Bookmark here

I ate, then went out to my sneak area at 7:30, but when I got there.Bookmark here

"What is this?!"Bookmark here

My way outside is blocked by a plank of wood, with nails poorly made.Bookmark here

I can destroy it with my hands, but if the person who did this saw that the one he made was broken, he might report it and completely seal this path with steel bars or even concrete.Bookmark here

"Hmmmm, what should I do?"Bookmark here

I remembered that the three are outside this wall already.Bookmark here

Hmm... fine then.Bookmark here

I wrote something with my ballpen and paper, got a rock, Tied them together.Bookmark here

I wrote 'Come to this side of the wall first.'Bookmark here

I threw it over the wall to the other side.Bookmark here

I heard someone say 'Ouch!' on the other side, so I'm pretty sure they're there.Bookmark here

After a few moments then three figures approached me.Bookmark here

Three figures where there, and the princess had a bump on her head.Bookmark here

"Perfect headshot."Bookmark here

"Do you hate me that much?!"Bookmark here

Pallie went near me and said.Bookmark here

"Can I ask you a question?"Bookmark here

"I didn't know the princess was there Pallie, so I had no intentions to assassinate her."Bookmark here

"No, it's not that! it's just something was bugging me all this time."Bookmark here

"Hmm what is it?"Bookmark here

"I've been wondering all this time, if you're not Moonclansmen, how did you become an adventurer so young?"Bookmark here

"I'm not an adventurer."Bookmark here

"""You're not?!"""Bookmark here

Me and my big mouth.Bookmark here

"But I thought only adventurers can only leave town?"Bookmark here

"Well..."Bookmark here

I told them about how I sneak out every night and stuff like that.Bookmark here

After explaining Pallie asked a question.Bookmark here

"Then yesterday, when you saved us, you put your life in danger?"Bookmark here

"What do you mean? Even if I'm an adventurer, I would've still died there you know?"Bookmark here

"No, I actually thought you we're a high level adventurer."Bookmark here

"Hmmm? is that so?"Bookmark here

"So you saved us knowing that you might die?! Onii-chan, I love you so much more!"Bookmark here

Like I said, even if I was an adventurer I would die. But still she is—Bookmark here

"Too cute..."Bookmark here

"Hehehe... Onii-chan..."Bookmark here

Heallie hugged me.Bookmark here

I hugged her back while patting her head.Bookmark here

Is Onee-chan having an influence on me? I don't care... this feels good.Bookmark here

The princess went to me and bowed her head while having a red face.Bookmark here

"Thank you so much for saving our lives, we are forever in your debt..."Bookmark here

"Don't try to act like a princess, I already know that you're a spoiled brat who would abuse her power to get her what she wants."Bookmark here

"What?! I'm not that kind of person!"Bookmark here

Pallie bowed her head too.Bookmark here

"I'm really grateful for saving the princess... please tell us if you ever need something."Bookmark here

"Well... actually, there is something I want that you can only get from the Moon Kingdom."Bookmark here

"Hmmm? What is it?"Bookmark here

"Do you know of the 'Clear Moon'?"Bookmark here

"Ahhh, that Jewel!'Bookmark here

"Do you have some?"Bookmark here

"We don't..."Bookmark here

"Oh, if that's the case that's too bad..."Bookmark here

"... do you have other request."Bookmark here

"Nah, it's okay... I did it in the spur of the moment anyway, it's not that I wanted to save you."Bookmark here

"Onii-chan! Tsundere! So cute!"Bookmark here

I wanted to say, 'how is that tsundere?!' but I didn't because she was just...Bookmark here

"too cute, can I bring you home as a body pillow?"Bookmark here

"Hehehe.... onii-chan."Bookmark here

"Heallie! Get away from him!"Bookmark here

"No! Don't take me away from my Onii-chan!"Bookmark here

The princess was pulling my Heallie away from me.Bookmark here

"This spoiled brat really does only abuse her powers."Bookmark here

"Wha?!"

Pallie looked at me and asked me a question.Bookmark here

"Come to think about it, if you're not an adventurer, how did you lose the Giga bear yesterday?"Bookmark here

"Oh thats..."Bookmark here

I put my hand on my chin thinking of something.Bookmark here

"Onii-chan, whats wrong?"Bookmark here

I remembered that when they were being chased by the bear, it only caught up to them because they got cornered, which means that they are just about the same speed when running.Bookmark here

If this is the case...Bookmark here

Maybe....Bookmark here

I thought of something stupid but for some reason, I was getting exited....Bookmark here

Why am I getting exited? I'll die if I do this...Bookmark here

What the hell is this feeling?Bookmark here

Gaaah! fine, I'll just do it.Bookmark here

"Before I answer that, can I ask you you're levels?"Bookmark here

"I'm level 13."Bookmark here

"Level 12!"Bookmark here

"I'm level 14."Bookmark here

"So the princess also hogs all the EXP huh?"Bookmark here

"No! It's just that I am the damage dealer!"Bookmark here

Pallie is 13 Heallie is 12 and the princess is 14.Bookmark here

I remembered, when Aura-nee and the Moi guy was level 19 when they defeated the Giga bear. Maybe we could beat it since we have 3 adventurers and I can support them too.Bookmark here

"About that request."Bookmark here

"What?"Bookmark here

"I request the three of you to help me kill the Giga Bear."Bookmark here
