SL Chapter 13

For some reason my posts for when I was on holiday all missed their scheduled release timings. Sorry guys! Here are the chapters!

Chapter 13: The Hero Ruti is alone

Translator: Tseirp

Since we made a little detour, it was close to noon when we arrived at the market.

Lit and I were sweating from the heat as we gathered and bought ingredients.

 

“Red~ I’m done on my side.”

“Great.”

 

I divided the shopping tasks for the two of us by handing her a memo. The market merchants didn’t seem to have any drive because of the heat as they didn’t call out to attract customers and they had all retreated to the back of their shops in the shade while holding a hand fan. It was great because thanks to that, we didn’t get stopped and we didn’t waste any money but I still smiled wryly at the lazy atmosphere within the market which completely suited Zoltan’s style.

It seemed like Lit also had the same thoughts and given how she seldom used the market, she laughed as she found it interesting.

 

“In my hometown, the market felt noisy even during summer. It became a standard phrase to say ‘I experience this every day so summer fatigue won’t phase me’.”

“My hometown was in the countryside so we didn’t even have a market. We brought whatever we made at home and bartered.”

“So Red’s hometown was like that. But didn’t Red join the Knights when you were about eight years old?”

“Well yeah. So I was only in my hometown for a short childhood.”

 

That’s why I couldn’t say that I had anybody I was particularly close with in my hometown. I wonder if even Ruti had forgotten about me but … in the past, Ruti was always the first to welcome me back at the entrance of the village whenever I returned home several times a year.

 

“Sigh, even though she took to me so much back then.”

 

She was probably getting along well with Ares now.

She haven’t noticed at all that her brother was gone.

 

” … That’s hard to believe though.”

“Hn?”

“I can’t imagine that Ruti opening her heart to anybody else apart from Red.”

“Really?”

“Yeah, I do not know anyone more frightening than her.”

“Frightening?”

 

I thought she was joking but Lit’s expression was serious.

 

“Facing off against Ruti in the arena was the first time I understood the saying of having goosebumps. Compared to any type of demon, I find the Ruti then the most terrifying … That’s why I couldn’t believe it when I saw Red, or I should say your former name, Gideon spoil Ruti.”

“Hah~ well, her facial expression was a little hard to understand though.”

“I can’t imagine Ares pampering that Ruti.”

 

That was quite an evaluation but Lit was seriously having doubts.

She made me feel a little anxious …

 

“Nevertheless, Ruti is far stronger than I am. I have no idea how the Hero Party is faring right now but they have apparently defeated the Wind Four Heavenly King so I guess they are doing well.”

” … That’s right! We’re in Zoltan after all so there’s no point worrying about it.”

 

Lit exclaimed as though to banish her thoughts and took my arm.

 

“Let’s go home.”

“Okay, let’s go.”

 

Since we have already distanced ourselves from the battle that would determine the fate of the world, we now lived in a separate world from the heroes.

 

☆☆

 

A person from the Hero Party, Danan who possesses the Divine Protection of the Martial Artist, exclaimed in anger.

 

“It’s about time you give it a rest Ares! How many times have this been!”

“We can always just return to buy it if we run out of it.”

 

Ares, with the Divine Protection of the Sage, stated without seeming to care about Danan’s anger burst. However, his lips trembled slightly, indicating that he took offense as a Sage from being scolded like a child by the uneducated Danan.

 

Currently, the Hero Party was in the Bloodsand Desert aiming for the weapons left by the previous Demon Lord.

The current aim was to snatch them before the current Demon Lord army and disrupt their plans.

However, it was now the third time they ran out of water and food and had to return to the settlement. Even though they had no idea where the weapons laid, since Red, or Gideon, left the party, the number of times their supplies ran out partway through the journey had clearly risen.

 

“Going back and forth countless times in the same area, how many days do you think have we spent in this desert! It was also you who failed in the negotiation with the desert residents to get their cooperation!”

“It’s the legendary weapons you know? There’s no way they can be found so easily. As for the negotiations, I did my best but the desert people in this land are pseudo-thieves that do not even obey the king in this land. If you have any complaints then you can go ahead and give it a go.”

 

Ares shrug his shoulders. That attitude incensed Danan even more.

 

“Even though you were the one who said you could replace Gideon for supplies procurement and negotiations! What do you have to say about that!”

“Unlike Gideon, I don’t have the leisure to only focus on the chores.”

 

Ares believed that Danan was being angry with trivial matters like usual.

However, after he saw Danan’s expression turn serious, danger signals ran through Ares’s mind. But he was way too late.

 

“That’s it, I will go look for Gideon. We will never progress at this rate.”

“Just wait a minute. We will be heading to the secret establishment of the current Demon Lord after this you know!? We will be troubled if you break off from the party now!”

“We will be annihilated at this rate. I only joined the party because I thought that it was the shortest path to defeat the Demon Lord. If it is no longer the shortest path, there is no longer any meaning in remaining here.”

 

Danan was serious. At the very least, that was how it appeared to Ares.

He sought for help and looked towards the seated Crusader Theodora but she had her arms folded and eyes closed to indicate that she didn’t want to be involved. The Assassin Tise who joined to replace Gideon had loyalty towards Ares for his invitation but would not be useful in this situation.

 

“Chasing Gideon out was an irreparable act Ares. You were too hasty.”

“How many times do I have to say it, I did not chase him out, he brought it up himself.”

 

A cynical smile showed on Danan’s scarred face.

At that moment,

 

“Danan, are you going to search for brother?”

 

It was a cold voice that could freeze even Danan’s cynical smile.

 

“He-hero-sama. That …”

 

Danan, with his whole body wrapped in thick muscular armor, shrank his body back in fear in front of a single girl. It was close to the phenomenon where herbivores fall into panic and their bodily functions seem to come to a stop under the stare of a large predator that they have completely no chance of winning against.

The Hero Ruti. The girl with silver armor wrapped around her small body and the demon-conquering holy sword on her waist expressionlessly stared up at Danan who had a large build.

However, God had decided that she was the strongest person. She was the Hero granted supernatural powers in order to save the world.

Even if Danan was a Martial Artist who could cut steel with his fingers, his instinct told him that he could never win against the Hero.

Danan swallowed audibly.

 

“Th-the party will face total annihilation if Ares continues to manage the party. We need your brother Gideon. Even Hero-sama …”

“Even?”

“N-no, that …”

 

He can’t do it. Danan bent his knee and it took his all just to stop himself from escaping from her gaze. It continued to wear away at the spirit of a man who survived through hundreds of live-and-death battles.

Although the silence only lasted for a little while, to Danan, it felt dozens of times longer.

 

“I’ll allow it. Go ahead.”

“Eh?”

“Danan, you shall go search for Gideon. We will continue our journey.”

“N-no, I.”

“That’s all.”

 

After saying that, Ruti returned to her own personal tent.

Although they claimed that she could use a personal tent because she was the party leader, the actual reason was that even Ares could not endure spending time with Ruti in a confined space.

Other than when she was adventuring, Ruti basically acted solo. Just one single person, only Gideon was the exception.

 

“Wa-wait a moment Ruti!”

 

Ares hurriedly chased after her.

Danan exhaled deeply and sat directly in front of Theodore who still had her eyes closed.

 

“And so, what will you do?”

“I have no choice but to go.”

 

When Theodore asked, Danan replied with his shoulders slumped.

 

“Even though I am aware that I am the cornerstone for attacks in this party.”

“After Hero-sama.”

“Well of course Hero-sama is special. I don’t believe Hero-sama even had a period when she was weak.”

“Everybody would have a time when they were weak when their Divine Protection level was low … but I am of the same opinion. Although Ares-dono might know more since he has been in the party since the early days.”

“Ares …”

 

Perhaps he finally calmed down as Danan’s tone returned to his usual arrogant tone. While stroking the scar on his cheek, Danan asked in a quiet voice.

 

“Do you think it is true that Ares killed Gideon because he was a nuisance?”

“Hmm.”

“It’s certain that Ares plans to get married with Hero-sama. That guy’s house is a fallen duke house so reviving his house is likely to be his long-cherished wish. The world-saving Hero and the Sage couple would definitely garner huge support. It won’t be impossible to build a duchy … we can’t deny what Yarandorara said right?”

 

When Gideon left, there was another companion in the Hero Party.

Yarandorara was a female High Elf with the Divine Protection 『Tree Singer 』which could control plants.

A week after Gideon left, she vehemently accused Ares for killing Gideon. For a whole week, she utilized the plants to gather information but there were no signs of Gideon leaving the town.

 

That was because Red performed measures having known about Yarandorara’s ability but she didn’t know that.

Ares broke his promise with Gideon and claimed that Gideon ran away on his own but Yarandorara didn’t believe him and left the party.

Even though her ability to control plants would not be able to display its full power in the desert, the search would have been a lot more comfortable if Yarandorara was around.

 

Danan didn’t believe that Ares would actually kill Gideon but … he suddenly thought about it since he was about to set off to look for Gideon.

If Gideon was murdered, Danan’s journey would never end.

 

“Gideon-dono is an astute person in combat. I was impressed that he could fight to that extent just by relying on common skills.”

“It was the same for me too. Gideon was a respectable tactician.”

“Didn’t you often blame him for blunders during combat in the past?”

 

Danan was startled and his body shivered. The arrogant giant dropped his shoulders in shame.

 

“I have this kind of personality after all … I won’t calm down unless I blame failure as failure … But I swear on my Divine Protection, I never once thought that Gideon was unnecessary in the party, let alone a hindrance.”

“Then you should have conveyed that properly.”

” … Then does that mean you feel that Gideon left of his own will?”

 

Danan snapped the branch he had in his hands in two and tossed them into the bonfire.

 

“Gideon-dono is a man recognized by Danan-dono, a contemporary expert in martial arts, and me, an assistant instructor in Church Knight Spear art. Regardless of how excellent Ares-dono is as a caster, he could never overturn a swordsman that two representative warriors respect.”

“That’s true!”

 

Theodore words also sounded like she intended those words for herself too. Danan understood that fact as well.

Gideon should be alive. He was a companion they trusted their back to and surmounted life-and-death struggles together. If they were alive, Gideon should be alive too.

There’s no way he would pass away alone before them.

 

“Tch, if that’s the case then I should have went to look for Gideon earlier. Then I wouldn’t have to go through such a tiresome desert.”

“That’s right, if Danan-dono talked to me earlier, I would have went to search too.”

 

The two of them matched gazes and smiled.

    and what we all hope to hero party is true

    how red know about yarandorara DP? aren’t she join hero party after red left?

    damn yandere imouto kowai

    • Easykiln

      You got it wrong. The druid was in the party with Gideon, it’s the assassin who joined after.

      I am looking forward to the sage’s miserable fate.

  2. Lancelot

    I had a feeling that the Hero party would suffer without Red. And Ares became more of a sleezy bastard in my mind, trip and fall imbecile!

  3. Kirindas

    Thanks for the new chapter! Didn’t expect the Hero to have such a dark personality. Ares is trash as expected. He’s probably only aiming for the fame and status. Not being able to be in a small spce with her is a big sign.

    • aa

      ** MINOR SPOILER **

      The hero doesn’t have a dark personality. It’s something that her divine protection influences. It’s explained much later by Ruti herself when she talks about the past.

      ** MINOR SPOILER **

      • Kodok

        Dont spoil it!!

        • Imanassholetoo

          >Someone gives an explanation
          >calls it a spoiler lmao
          If you’re so svared of spoilers better stop reading comments

          • Its close to spoiler, please refrain from giving hints as there are people who really likes reading comments but hates spoilers and such. And its really not fun reading novels that got spoiled specially for those who have hobbies like reading Web novel and such. You would not like your favorite food got spoiled(In a food sense) too right?

  4. Thanks for the chapter.

    I read this in the raws… which was a mistake due to Google Translate’s reliability. I’m thankful for a proper translation. Anyway, even before I read it I knew that the Hero Party would fall apart without MC. Ares may be a sage, but he’s an idiot as well. I always said that Arrogance and Ignorance are not too far between, Ares is proof of this. The plan on getting Red out of the way backfired. Everyone knows that you need a negotiator in a Hero Party. Not to mention Red also took care of supplies and managed the food. And no, that’s not really a spoiler. Still, they are pathetic without Red. The thing I hate about sages, they’re highly arrogant of their abilities because of a stupid title.

    • The sage in this novel is just a blessing to give them same power and mind of a Sage but not common sense, as Sage were suppose to be the one with the most common sense but Ares is one of the example that contradicts their titles, He acts like a wizard not a sage. Sage are the kind of people good at negotiation and supply managements as they fight in an unorthodox method far from Wizards who just blows everything away.

  5. Zero

    about time we get to know what happens to Hero party and it this
    they are soooooo fuck without red /Gideon and sage is an asshole

  6. Ori

    Ares: let’s drive out the brother figure in order to marry the little sister (who also appears to not be blood related). He had no blessing and I, the Sage, can surely fulfill his tactical role due i my intelligence.
    Also Ares: I can’t stay in a location with the hero for very long because she terrifies me to incontinence. Also why do I have to talk with such low class scum?

    • Tentative Senki

      More like: “I’m a genius, so let’s drive out the ‘important for everything member’ and ‘brother’ of a ‘potentialy yandere brocon overpowered but also mentaly dengerous hero’ so I can dreaming about marrying her but turn out to be killed gruesomely like a stupid idiot bug I am. Yeah, I’m a genius!”

  8. Rifaman

    So the Hero is kuudere? And in really bad mood because her brother gone? And from Hero Party composition it’s Gideon is the real leader? Because everybody except Gideon clearly scared with Ruti, maybe she is only leader in name?

  9. Nyamsus

    Sage is someone with high intelligence but low on wisdom…

    • sjmcc13

      Intelligence would be enough to get the supplies right.
      Maybe not the first time, but after a couple supply runs he should have it down pat. and there should be other sources of information he can use to figure out what is needed.

      It having been a year and his is still failing means he is not even trying to do the job.

      I doubt he has any skills/capabilities other then the combat aspects of his Divine Protection.

  10. junior1210

    It’s unanimous, Ares is officially sphincter drool. With how all the other members took his leaving, It’s a wonder that they didn’t just expel Ares and look for Red/Gideon and continue the quest. If/when Danan finds him, he’s gonna have to drag Red kicking and screaming back AND fight Lit, who isn’t interested in giving up her hubby for little sister.

  11. LygarX

    seems like everyone will eventually leave until it is just ares by himself and the Demon King will simply die at the village Red is at when nearly everyone is reunited.

  12. sjmcc13

    Man the “Sage” is an major idiot. He volunteered to do 2 tasks that are both NECESSARY and is dismissing them are mere chores that are beneath him when he fails.

    Supplies is something that should take a little effort to becomes competent enough in to keep the party afloat, but after more then a year Ares should have mastered it by now, since it is important enough that he should be making it a major focus if he insists on doing the job.

    Though I am willing to bet that the suplies related to his magic and knowledge are never falling short, with him probably over supplied quite often.

    Negotiations are something that can require you to have a knack for it, you want a people person and a arrogant intellectual is not a good starting place for a people person.

    The party is not much better, they have been letting Ares fail at necessary tasks for a year. They should have taken these tasks from him long ago. Are thry just a bunch of muscle heads who can only fight and have no other life skills?

  13. lmfao

    There’s an illustration so if you guys want to see what Red and Lit looks like~
    Just copy paste the Japanese name for this manga and go to the Raws then scroll down.
    Red seriously loos so average, Lit is pretty lit.

  14. Ker

    My hometown as in the countryside .
    as > was

    “Sigh, even though she took to me so much back then.”

    took = ?

    • SANIC

      Something like “the kitten has become rather taken with me”

      Seen this sort of phrase a lot. I don’t think it’s an error.

    • Thanks! 🙂 And yeah I think SANIC explained that ‘took’ part

  15. Not Important

    I feel like throwing into thoughs on Red and his actions, especially his inital leaving of the party. Last chapter we learend that divine protections have a personality correction effect, so red leaving is not too unfathomable too me as he felt as if his job was done, he thought that the party would be fine without him, guides depeiding on interpertaion are either one who shows you the way forward from the start which he did (should have taught the party how to actually manage themselves before leaving) or a person who leads people in a forgin enviroment and be their representative to those who would be suspicious to new comers(which was the job he did) but the personality correction probably made him very critical of his abilities so when he is told that he is useless and is able to se himself falling behind the group in combat It makes sense he would leave when asked to, (He had in a sense filled his role in some interpertations). Ares should have used red if he wanted to marry the sister instead of driving away as he has now lost the only bridge to the hero, and probably the only thing tieing her to the world really. Also Ares calling a populaion bassicly a nation of theives is not the way to get them to co-operate. Another question is how would an assassin be able to replace a tactician, logistics, financier, negotiator, and hero wrangler that party is working with half a deck at this point. Sorry for the long unfocused comment

    • sjmcc13

      I think Ares chose to replace Gideon with someone who would be useful in a fight (the reasons he kicked out Gideon) but subservient to him.

  16. Kokorosy

    Thanks for the chapter! Some really good points made by everyone about Red’s role in the hero party. Red was the person who held the party together, so when he left it began to crumble. The interesting point I noticed was Danan’s and Theodore’s admission that they took Red for granted and never let know how much they valued what he did. So when Ares played on Red’s insecurities to convince him to leave, Red had no reason to doubt Ares’ claim that he was holding the party back and offered nothing of value as a member. Also, is Theodore a man or woman? Theodore is the male name and Theodora the female.

  17. Thor

    I’m sorta disappointed that the Hero party is being brought back into the story. I was hoping that after the first chapter, we would be only hearing about Red and Lit’s slow-time, slice-of-(extraordinary)-life passing of days in a remote town far removed from the redundant Hero’s Quest To Defeat The Maou.

    Oh, well. This is fine enough, I suppose.

  18. Zeth

    Thank you Tseirp!

  19. ZaX

    I thought they would complain about bad meals at least once haha.
    Thanks for the chapter

  20. SBN

    I couldn’t care less about the hero party tbh. They weren’t even introduced as characters until this chapter. I just hope Red can have his peaceful life without the hero party bothering him too much.

  21. Stbunbun

    I really never understood Ares plan in all of this. I understand he is arrogant and an asshole, but really dude what was he planning to gain by chasing out Red. I understand from Ares personality he looks down on and disregards anyone he sees as lesser than him. He just doesn’t really seem to be working towards his goals of marrying the Hero at all.

    Having Red leave behind the scenes then declaring him a coward is just to stupid. You never hid that you disliked him. You never hid that you wanted to marry his sister. The first thing that is going to pop into everyones mind when you say “Gideon ran away in fear everyone!” is that everyone will think “Ares you killed him didn’t you….” This is not a hard leap of logic.

    I guess this is what you get when you have someone who declares themselves smart when they actually spend no time thinking about anything.

  22. Zienn

    Yeah… I get a feeling something about to explode inside that hero

  23. nansty

    Thanks for this new chapter !!!

  24. Now thing’s gets interesting… Elf looking for Red, i thought for sure that Only Heroes got the passive skill “Charm all ladies skill” but Red might have it too.

    • Z@It0

      Because Red is MC soo that passive skill more powerful then Hero

    • Nuage

      Well, Red is actually the ONLY decent guy of the team AND the Elf spent some time in the party. It’s not so shocking that ONE girl in the team would fall for him.
      I’m more worried about (male) children blushing in his presence.

      Lit best waifu though.

  25. '_'

    His plan was to be a fail sage.
    Because he is always thinking with his lower half he never ever engaged sage(not-horny) mode.

  26. Fuxy

    For a sage he is not very smart is he? I say our MC has more compatibility with the sage profession than that fool.

    Well we know divine protections are given randomly to an extreme degree so I guess that’s how it is.

    Although if you think about it what kind of good would do that? It is very disruptive if the skill you trained the most in your childhood doesn’t get the boost.

    And we know that God doesn’t give it by compatibility because then everyone will be very compatible with their blessings.

    Anyone else think this is quite a prankster/evil good that just likes to mess with living creatures.

    • sjmcc13

      I think the problem is more likely in how this world interprets the names of the divine protections.

      To me a Sage should be allot like a PHD with ALLOT of knowledge and skill in a specific area, normally with some bleed over to other areas, but often the same as everyone else in in most areas, and they can get so focused on their work that they lose track of other areas of life.

      There are a lot of people who are experts in 1 area thinking that means they should be listened to and valued in other/all areas. Because they have to be smart to get that specialization (not always true, hard work and parents money can help more then you realize, and sometimes people are gifted in 1 or 2 areas but idiots everywhere else) so those who are not as smart (everyone without the same level of education) should blindly listen to them.

      • Nuage

        Do not forget that this is the japanese kind of “sage”. They (abusively) associate it with magic abilities instead of wisdom; maybe you could say he is the ambitious researcher? A guide, however, is someone of profound morality, with sensitivity and wisdom.

        I think you’re particularly right in that because he’s good at one area he thinks he’s good everywhere else. He is from a decadent bigshot family and he is ambitious, he has pride and won’t compromise on second best: wedding the Hero is the best thing that can happen to him and his family, after all.

        He probably thought her brother was much too close and by making him leave he could find a way to fill up the hole. But that was foolish, he should have made use of their relationship by befriending Red and getting his approval. The sister would have paid so much more intention to him in that situation. Ares was blinded by his greed and ambition. Bad boy..

  27. Ie

    Well any kind of RPG game and other games need guide even for some hero party, if i must say. To guide people you need knowledge and we could conclude Red able to access any kind of hints, knowledge, walkthrough, and even easter eggs in that world. That sooo OP.

    • Fuxy

      Well he spent a lot of time researching that because he knew he won’t be much help in battle at least so he has to pull his weight somehow.

      What is a amazing is that the guy with the devine protection of the sage is so stupid… shouldn’t he have an impulse to read books and broaden his knowledge or something?

      That guy has bad compatibility with his protection that’s for certain.

  28. Z@It0

    Serve you right !!!!

    Thx FOr CHapTER!!

  29. Sky

    It’s like D&D. Every party needs a ‘face’ to operate well. A good face will find you better contacts for better supplies, more rewarding quests, etc. The stranger part here is no one seems to be able basic logistics, even if they have to pay full price on everything. A bunch of muscle-heads who took Wisdom and Charisma as their dump stats. Maybe the ‘Druid’ who left after Red had some Wisdom, and he certainly made the Sense Motive check on Ares to realize he was lying about Red leaving by himself…

  30. Nuage

    That’s a very nice story. We get that the MC is not an idiot, although he has his inferiority complex, and the other characters (probably) have their own motivations. I find Lit especially endearing with how much she desires to be with Red. Hasn’t she come to the frontier, only for the guy’s sake? That’s seriously touching.
    I am very curious about the sister though. How badly did she take his departure? It sounds like she is actually resentful(which makes if she thinks of it as a betrayal), instead of being sad (which could have made sense too, if she had perceived the signs of his inferiority complex). But we didn’t get much of her feelings here, so just theories theories.

    • sjmcc13

      Lit and Red went to the frontier independently of each other.
      She did not know he would be there, and I think she was there first.

      Lit explains why she is on the frontier in Ch 7.

      • Nuage

        I’ll have to check what she says exactly. But unless she was actually there first, I still think she went to the frontier for Red. I mean, she clearly has the hot for our guy. Even if she’s waiting for the situation in her country to settle down, isn’t it too much of a coincidence to go to that particular remote region where her crush lives? Or am I trying to make her too romantic?

        • sjmcc13

          No one knows where Gideon is. She had no way of knowing where to go to find him.

          Do not read into a story what is not there.

          The coincidence is because they both chose Zoltan for the same reason, a remote region as far from the demon war as possible. There can not be to many of them.

  31. Nuage

    By the way, does anyone have the link to the raws?

  32. Nuage

    Nevermind about the link, I found it on the ToC. Derp.

  33. SFcipher

    Thanks for the treat.

  34. Hunter

    It seems like it’s going the harem route with Lit and Yarandorara, With the little sister being a serious brocon

    • sjmcc13

      I am really hoping she is not a love interest.

      We know she tried to find Gideon, but that does not mean romance, she could have just wanted to force him to explain why he was leaving, or say good bye to his sister.

      There are plenty of reasons to look for the guy who ran away, especially if you have reasons to not completely believe the person who is claiming he ran away, who has bee against that person beina member since day 1, and insults him constantly (guessing on this part).

      Her leaving the party could be to search for Gideon, or realizing things are about to go to hell and getting out of dodge, or a loss of faith in them as she thinks Ares killed a companion and no one else cares.
