Chapter 15:

EPILOGUE: THE HERO OF ARLES’ FIRST ‘DAY’ AT WORK

The Human Saint is Bored, so I was Summoned to Another World Vol. 1


Heh. If you thought I forgot my work back in Arles, then you’re wrong.Bookmark here

Right now, I’m trying my best to hurry towards the town.Bookmark here

Yep, I’m running. You knew I couldn’t ride a horse, or drive a cart pulled by a horse. I owned a car back on Earth, but of course, it’ll be stupid if they had cars here. This wouldn’t be a fantasy world if that happened.Bookmark here

But yes, I miss my old life full of convenience…Bookmark here

The gate of Arles was still as imposing as ever. The guards from the town militia stand at attention like usual. However, if they questioned me, I’m better prepared now.Bookmark here

I have my brand-new identification papers made!Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Huh? That’s strange. I thought I put it here in my coat’s pocket. Let’s check the other pockets then…Bookmark here

“…”Bookmark here

Damn…I got a problem. A huge one.Bookmark here

“Halt!” a soldier had already challenged me, “Your identification papers, please.”Bookmark here

Err…can I go back and fetch it? I forgot it in my room…” I sheepishly asked, not wishing to infuriate the guard at the gate. How I wished that Sir Osmond were around so he could help me…probably.Bookmark here

“You idiot!” another soldier hit his companion in the head with a helmet, “Can’t you recognize this man? He’s the hero of our town!”Bookmark here

Huh? This plain-looking guy is the Hero of Arles?”Bookmark here

“Yes. I can recognize him for his black hair.” the second soldier then turned to me, “I’m sorry for my companion, sir. He didn’t know of your heroic deeds.”Bookmark here

“Ahahahaha…” I awkwardly laughed, “I understand that he’s just doing his job faithfully. And, I’m in the wrong, anyway; I forgot my identification papers back at the Holy Palatial Gardens.”Bookmark here

“See, kid! That’s how a hero should conduct himself, humble and honest.” the second soldier slapped his partner at the back.Bookmark here

In the end, they let me enter the town even without the identification papers in my person. Seriously, aren’t those guys overblowing what I just did? And is that arrogant Baroness hated that much by the populace here for them to treat me as a hero?Bookmark here

This world was really stupid, as usual.Bookmark here

Good day, Mister Ricardo!”Bookmark here

“Ah Kuro, you finally came!”Bookmark here

“I’m sorry it took me long to come back.” I explained, “I came across some problems back at the Holy Palatial Gardens.”Bookmark here

“Don’t worry about it, Kuro.” Mister Ricardo replied, “You won’t be working here anymore, anyway.”Bookmark here

I froze when I heard that. Did he just say I’m fired?Bookmark here

Err…Mister Ricardo, is it because it took me long, that you’re dismissing me?”Bookmark here

Uhh…sorry kid, I can’t tell you the real reason behind it.” he answered, “But you have to know, I’m a very patient person. It doesn’t matter if it took you quite a while as long as you’re willing to work. So please be at ease that I am not dismissing you because of that.”Bookmark here

“But…” Bookmark here

Man, this sucks…I mean, it’s also the first time I’d be working on my own.Bookmark here

“However, let me tell you something.” Mister Ricardo leaned closer to me as if he’s about to tell a secret, “As much as I wanted you to work here, I don’t like to make into my enemies the ladies back there, at the Holy Palatial Gardens.”Bookmark here

Huh? What do you mean by that, Mister Ricardo?Bookmark here

“Alright, girls!” the former mercenary-turned-restauranteur then clapped his hands, “Our dear customer seemed to have drunk a lot of wine. Can you please lead him outside?”Bookmark here

Wait, what? Now you’re telling me I’m drunk?Bookmark here

“Come on ladies! Let’s pick up this fellow and show him the way out!”Bookmark here

“Yes sir!”Bookmark here

“Heave-ho!”Bookmark here

Wait!Bookmark here

The pretty ladies of Holy Frills Diner wasted no time in throwing me outside their restaurant.Bookmark here

“!!!”Bookmark here

That fucking hurt.Bookmark here

Now I’m back to ‘jobless’ as my status once again. And I honestly didn’t know which one hurts the most: being thrown out or going back to being a freeloader.Bookmark here

What kind of stupidity is that, anyway?Bookmark here
