Side Story 3 – The Heroes Part 2
They were exactly like the opposite sides of a coin. Benny was petite and born in a slum. In contrast, Ruby has a feminine body and is noble by birth. She’s also the third daughter of a duke family.
The two of them stared at each other, and then Ruby turned away with a huff.
“I mean, in the first place, you have three, and we only have the two of us. This match has no meaning!”
“You confirmed it in the beginning! Didn’t you say I could borrow Nina from you?”
“I told you I didn’t want it! Nina is just too scared to do anything with me!”
Nina had tears in the corners of her eyes. Nina’s family is a noble family of a viscount. She knew Ruby well and understood that she was someone who she could never behave rudely with.
As a hero, there was no difference in position between them, but for Nina, who was being taught that from an early age, Ruby was not someone she could ever interfere with.
After patting Nina’s head like that, Tilfa came between Benny and Ruby.
“Well, that’s enough. We’re heroes, so we don’t have to fight like this.”
“Yes, of course. I get along with everyone except Benny.”
“What, did, you, sayyy…!” Benny swings her arms around, and Tilfa holds her body down with a wry smile. Benny’s face turns redder and redder as Ruby crosses her arms triumphantly and shows off her breasts.
“I just said that and you started it again, Ruby. I’m sorry about that, Benny-chan.”
When Tilfa said that, Benny nodded her head in a way that seemed to calm her down a bit. After that, their quarrel calmed down for a while, and the five of them lined up and headed to the guild in the school.
This is where they can deliver the monsters they defeated in the school labyrinth. The receptionist’s cheeks were twitching at the materials that Ruby and Benny had pulled out of the item box.
The materials lined up at the reception desk were werewolf materials and C-rank equivalent magic stones. There are very few people in this school who can defeat them in large numbers in a short time.
This was because the heroes had outstanding strength compared to children of the same age. Even in their guild card ranks, the heroes had already all been ranked C. Their abilities were still growing, and it was said that they might even reach B-rank or A-rank.
And at that time. Nina was the first to notice the guild staff who had been watching their quarrel. Nina glanced at the guild staff. The guild staff was looking at Nina as if she was asking for help.
Nina also seemed to understand the staff member’s feelings painfully. And then she unusually intervened between them.
“Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait… can you please?”
“What is it, Nina?”
“Hyiiii, I’m sorry, I’m sorry…Uh! Hoeee…”
Nina grabbed Lynn’s arm as the two of them glared at her and almost made her throw up. That’s when Lynn and Tilfa also noticed the staff.
“It seems like the staff has something to say to us?”
Lynn said so, and as one would expect, she sighed after looking at the two of them.
“What is it?”
“Oh, r-right. I have received an urgent request from the country to have at least… one of the heroes participate.”
Lynn frowned at the part about the request from the country. Lynn didn’t really like being forced to fight by anyone like that. On the contrary, Benny’s eyes lit up.
“If this is a request from the country, then it’s a pretty important request, right? This is a big chance to sell our name!”
“…U-Uhm, well, that’s true. There’s no limit to the number of people who can participate. But, they are asking for the heroes to join them to give courage to the people there. Please look here for more details on the request.”
“I’ll take it!”
Ruby chuckled at Benny, who had a twinkle in her eyes.
“It’s so stupid of you to decide without knowing the details of the request.”
“Can I borrow it for a moment… hmm, it’s difficult, I can’t read it…”
After receiving the request form, Ruby raised her eyebrows. Lynn glanced at the request form, but there were no difficult words used. It was just that Ruby was the dumbest among all of them. [T/n: so the duke’s daughter is dumbest, huh.]
“Tilfa, what is this request about?”
“To put it simply, this is a request for a hero to go to the place where the monsters attacked and encourage the victims there. I have other things to do, so I won’t be able to do it. I’ll leave it to Benny.”
“Yeah, got it. What about you two?”
Benny stretched out her hard-to-see breast and then looked at Lynn and Nina.
“I think I’ll pass.” said Ruby out of the blue.
“I didn’t ask you.”
That’s where another dispute was about to occur, but Lynn interrupted.
“I’m kind of … difficult, too, I guess.”
“I-I-I can’t do it either!”
Nina and Lynn also shook their heads.
“Okay. Well, I’ll go by myself, then.”
“I’m worried. Are you sure you’re ready to represent the heroes?”
“I’m sure I can do better than you as a representative.”
“What do you mean?”
“Oh, so you’re going to do it?”
The two of them stared at each other, and then Tilfa stopped Ruby while Lynn was holding Benny in the back.
“Alright, alright. You don’t want to bother people, so let’s stop now. Okay, then, staff-san. Can I leave that to you?”
Lynn tilted her head while saying that, and then the staff member nodded his head.
“Please leave it to me.”
“Well, then, we’ll go home.”
“Uh, let me go!”
“As long as you promise not to rampage. Okay then, Ruby, Tilfa, I’ll see you tomorrow.”
“Yeah, see you later.”
Ruby is carried away by Tilfa while Lynn did the same with Benny.
