Chapter 26 : Jack and Luck
I remembered Jack said he had an adventurer big brother.
Could it be… the cliché scene where a bully didn’t accept being humiliated and bring his big brother to take revenge? Moreover, his brother’s age was more than twice my age!
What should I do? Should I escape inside the inn? Or should I do the diving dogeza?
When I was confused, Nicola who was wiping the tables in the dining hall, also went outside.
『Well, well… They want revenge, huh? Onii-chan, I’m cheering for you!』
Said Nicola using telepathy while hiding behind me.
Behind my back was probably the best seat for her to watch how it goes.
She acted like it wasn’t her problem. Oi, oi. This all happened because of you, you know!
After staring at Nicola, the boy looked back at Jack. Jack then nodded to him.
「I see, so this girl, huh…. If that’s so, how about we do it here then?」
Is he serious? In front of the inn like this!?
The boy stood upright in front of me.
He stretched out both of his hands and then clapped once.
「Please! Forgive my little brotherー!」
He bowed and said that. At the same time, he also pushed down Jack’s head and forced him to bow.
「Ehh…..? Ahh….. What!?」
I’m so confused.
The boy then raised his head. He sighed while rubbing Jack’s head violently and saidー
「I’m really sorry. This guy, my little brother, can’t refrain himself from teasing a cute girl he likes」
「Waiー! Onii-chan! Why do you say that!?」
Jack’s face turned red.
「It’s true isn’t it!? I always told you if you do that, girls will hate you!」
With his face turned bright red, Jack could only make an indescribable groan.
I see now.
Jack’s brother didn’t come to take revenge but he brought his little brother here to apologize.
I’m sorry bro, I thought you came to kick me in the butt.
「When I got home from the guild today, I saw him swinging a wooden sword in our yard. But he didn’t look like he was practicing sword seriously, so I asked him what happened and he said he lost in a duel. When I asked why he had a duel in the first place, he said he was trying to invite a girl to his team. From there, I can guess what exactly happened」
Maybe Jack was thinking about getting revenge so he was practicing before challenging me again. But it seems his intention to get revenge was gone thanks to his brother’s intervention.
「And then I brought him here to apologize for good. After he did bad things to both of you, maybe it sounds selfish but… I’ll be grateful if you want to get along with him from now on… Is there any hope?」
After saying that, Jack’s brother turned to Nicola and smiled.
But Nicola just kept her expressionless face without any reaction.
「…….Haha… Well, it seems there’s no hope, huh…」
After muttering like that, he continued.
「Ah. I forgot to introduce myself. I’m Luck, his big brother. I’m an adventurer but I’m still in rank E. He really admires me, so I taught him various things, but the way he treated girls was just terrible. I’m really sorry!」
Once again, Luck bowed at us while forcing Jack to bow too.
Well, I think there’s no point in telling me, a 6-year-old child, about something like treating a girl though.
But… Leaving aside that Jack had picked a fight with me, I felt a little sorry for him because it seems his big brother was really an insensitive person.
I’m sure his HP almost reached zero after his big brother exposed his secret in front of the girl he liked.
「It’s okay. Besides, Nicola didn’t hurt at all. Right? Nicola?」
『Actually, I was already satisfied when Onii-chan embarrassed him in the duel, and now his big brother embarrassed him even more! Haha! I’m more than satisfied now, so it’s okay』
Said Nicola to me using telepathy, but she only nodded once to Luck.
「Really!? Thank you! I promise I’ll be more strict to him… Oi, Jack!」
「Y, Yes!……… Mark, Nicola, I’m sorry…」
Urged by Luck, Jack reluctantly apologized. Of course, with his face still bright red.
「*Sigh*….. Does he really regret what he did?… You guys, if he troubled you again, just tell me! Well then, we’ll go home now」
Then Luck and Jack went home.
But, even if he said “just tell me”, I don’t even know where he lives.
What a storm-like event.
Nicola and I still stood in front of the inn, looking at their back.
「Heeーー So Luck was the big brother of the bully kid you told me earlier huh」
Suddenly, Celine appeared from inside.
How long has she been watching?
「Celine, you know him?」
「Even though Luck is still a rank E adventurer, everyone said he was a promising beginner. Well, from my perspective, he’s nothing though」
Oi, oi. He’s still a kid. What an immature thing for an adult to say…
By the way, Celine was a rank C adventurer.
「Boys really like dueling over the girls they like, huh. And you embarrassed such a boy by taking off his underwear in front of the girl he likes. Mark, you are a demon… But what you did was hilarious though, Haha!」
Uhh.. Demon, huh?
I was just thinking of a way to make him give up without hurting him though.
Well, his body didn’t hurt at all but his pride was severely damaged. And the damage was doubled with his big brother embarrassed him earlier.
「Well, I think the little brother will be quiet from now on. He never thought there’s a child like you existed. Fufufu」
Celine looked at me and laughed.
「By the way, Mark. You always practice magic everyday. Do you wanna be an adventurer in the future?」
「Umm, to be honest, I’m still not sure. If I can earn money easily, I’ll gladly become one. But, it’s a very dangerous job, right?」
「Well, if you have confidence in your ability, I think it’s a good job. However, trouble is inevitable in this job, so it’s not completely a safe job. But you know Mark? When you can overcome the trouble with your own power, you will get an indescribable pleasure feeling, emhh～♡」
Celine put her hands on her shoulders and writhing her body while saying that.
Don’t tell me she was an M person…
After seeing my cold stare, she saidー
「Hmm. Maybe because you’re a child, you don’t understand it yet」
ーand then clapped her hand.
「Oh, that’s right! Mark! If you want, I’ll take you with me outside the town in my next job tomorrow!」
Oh? A sudden excursion invitation!
This is good.
Actually, I’ve been interested in the outside world recently. But of course, I never plan to do anything reckless.
However, I think I’ll be safe with Celine.
I shouldn’t miss this opportunity!
「Yes! I wanna go!….. But, will you protect me?」
I didn’t know what kind of danger existed in the outside world. Besides, I’m still six, so I need protection from an adult.
「Okay! Leave it to Celine onee-chan!」
Celine stretched out her chest while saying that, making her big boobs boing-boing-ed softly.
In my previous world, there was a theme park for children where they could experience working as adults. Let’s just think of it like going to that park, so the safety was also guaranteed……… It’ll be safe, right? Right?
First, I have to tell dad and mom and get their permission.
Both Dad and Mom knew Celine very well, so I think they’ll give me a YES.
