The party leader, Zect, who has the job of a hero, tells me.
”Im sorry, but you
e banished today. ”
”Oh, well, thats okay. ”
Zect and I have known each other since childhood, but I had a vague idea that this was going to happen someday.
”Best friend ” I thought for sure, but this guy has a bad habit that cannot be controlled.
Lida, the Sword Saint
Maria, the Saint
Mel, the Wise Man
The five of us, included me, were known as the S-rank party, the Light of Hope.
The name of the party is a little bit chuuni, but it is not so strange because Zect is a hero, and there is a Sword Saint, a Saint, and a Wise Man.
However, there is a problem with this party.
That is because three of the members are women.
Zect is not such a bad guy in general.
But there is one thing that makes him a scum in my opinion.
He is bad when it comes to women. He just can resist them.
As Im an adult, I don disagree with all of this guy.
Certainly, there is friendship… but Zect puts love before friendship.
Thats the way he is.
And lately Ive been left behind by everyone else.
Its true that I haven been able to keep up with the three of them, who have grown up in terms of jobs, and I can help it.
So, I thought it was okay if I got banished.
But isn that wrong? Anyway, its no use staying with them if Im struggling with them, and even if I can keep up with them in the heroic party, Im still an S-class guy.
Theres plenty more what I can do next time.
Even if I can keep up with the brave party, there are plenty of other S-level parties that I can keep up. If I drop down to A-level, Ill probably be in a great spot.
I don have a problem with that.
”Ceres, you know you can keep up with us, right? ”
”Yes, its true that I can keep up with everyone as a Magic Swordman… Its hard. ”
This is all right.
I know what Zect wants. He wants a harem.
For that Im in the way.
”To make a great leap forward as a hero, I need a great achievement. Im afraid I can do it with you. So, please understand, you may be out of the party, but youll still be my best friend. ”
I guess if the leader says so…
I can help it.
Im sure the others are no different.
I looked into Mels eyes, the woman I loved so much, knowing that she no longer had the kind eyes she used to have and that she was now completely Zects girl.
”I agree with Zect! You can keep up with this party anymore. You will die or be seriously injured in the near future. Youd better quit now… This is for your own good. ”
”Mel… I know it. ”
Well, thats what shes gonna say. Though she never makes eye contact with me.
Anyway, I don care if shes sleeping with Zect… After all, nothing I can do about it.
But then, my eyes fell on Mels neck.
There is a mysterious necklace on her neck, which is probably a necklace that Zect bought for her.
She is not wearing the necklace I gave her anymore… And it makes me a little sad.
Well, Im a Magic Swordman, I guess its time to give up.
Two others were wearing the same necklace.
So, theres no need for me at the harem party.
However, should I check it out first?
”Mel… You don need me, right? ”
”I want to hear it from you. ”
”Yes, I don need you anymore. ”
Thats just… Yeah, as I expected.
”Well then, Zect, be happy! ”
”Hey… You knew it, didn you? ”
”Yeah, but Zects a good guy… Any other man Id duel with, but with Zect Id give up. ”
”Im sorry! ”
”Don worry about it. ”
He looks sad, but he doesn have to be.
Though it makes me a little sad.
”Youd better go back to the village and become a local adventurer… or find another weak party… ”
”Yeah, of course, Ill take it easy for a while and think about it. ”
* * *
This guy, Zect, thought that Mel and I were dating and cuckolded me.
However, in fact, I don have any special feelings for Mel. Rather, its been a bit of a problem…
Still, hes my best friend, but hes got this womanizing habit… can he get over it?
Zect looks at me with a triumphant look on his face.
Hes looking down on me.
And can he get rid of this bad habit too?
Really… Hes good at everything he does, he has a good face, hes strong, and he was chosen to be a hero.
Theres no need to look down on me that much.
If hed just shut up, everyone would say you
But these two bad things are ruining him and it worries me a little.
For the record, Mel is not my girlfriend, I just naturally took care of her since Zect always hanging out with Lida and Maria.
Anyway, does he feel sorry for her?
If he wants to build a harem, he should love them equally.
Also, the est friend part.
He should be honest with me.
He should talk to me at night, like, I want a harem.
Then, things would be a little clearer.
”Goodbye, Ceres. ”
”More importantly! Im so sorry about Zect… ”
Four childhood friends all saying goodbye at once… This is more painful than I thought it would be.
I don want to say so, but Ive spent a lot of time in my life, and Im going to miss them a lot.
”Don be so mean, Mel! Ceres is my best friend too. ”
”Don worry about it, Zect! Next time we see each other, well smile and talk… also, thank you for your help until now. I hope you four live happily ever after! ”
e leaving the party? ”
”Yeah, you guys can go save the world. Ill take my time. ”
