Chapter 14: Out of the Plan
Smile, smile, smile... I definitely must not allow anyone to look at me as though I'm like that idiot.
I won't fuss about this Fir running here by himself to save big sis Irlin, and I can even ignore the warm relationship between him and the two girls, Oyado and Purewhite. However, ever since I came here, isn't he a little too much for completely ignoring me?
Deciding on the plan by himself, deciding everyone's actions himself, just what the hell is this guy thinking?
I feel that he's too overly mindful of this world. However, at certain times, this guy is actually really casual about everything.
This guy can't be figured out at all!
Eating the fried noodles I bought from the restaurant at the side, I blankly looked towards the sky and sank into deep thoughts.
Just why am I following behind that person? Is it because he gives me a very unique feeling?
Probably, I have always paid attention to him because he's the first person I ever encountered in this world who was not an NPC.
If that's really the case, then aren't I like an idiot?
"Aliyah~ Your fried noodles had already fallen onto the table."
"Really? I'm sorry."
Hearing Lois's reminder, I hurriedly put down the strands of fried noodles I was clasping on in mid-air.
"Aliyah-chan, what's wrong? Clearly, you were the one who wanted supper. But, you don't look like you have the appetite at all~"
Ms. Mari asked with a smile.
"Could it be that you're jealous that Oyado and Purewhite have went with Fir to play?"
"Who would be jealous of them? That's so stupid."
"Hohoho~ Although that Fir is a dense blockhead, if he were to continuously suffer attacks by those two, probably, he might one day turn smooth and round, and then, he will roll away, you know?"
"If he rolls away, then he rolls away! What does that have to do with me!"
I slapped down the chopsticks heavily on the table, and then, stood up.
"I don't have the mood to eat anymore! I'm going to stroll on the streets!"
"Wait a minute, Aliyah!"
Lois chased after me. But I ignored her, and quickly walked to distance myself away from them.
"Aliyah, wait for me!"
Hearing the constant shouting behind me, I stopped.
I turned to look over, and behind me, Lois was currently running to me while panting heavily. She wiped off her sweat while breathing heavily.
"Aliyah, your stamina is a little too good, huh..."
"As a mercenary, your stamina being so weak comes even more unexpected to me."
"Hehehe, probably because I haven't got much to do recently, and I have eaten a little too much."
Lois stuck out her tongue very cutely.
Looking at her expression, I could not help but size her up from head to toe again.
Is she really a mercenary? Other than that slight amount of muscles on her arms and waist, all I can see are whiteness and slenderness. I really don't know how this girl actually uses that huge sword behind her.
Forget it, even if it's me, I'm able to use a greatsword as well. There's too many illogical things in this world, it's best that I don't mind them.
"Why did you follow me? Stop promoting to me love between girls or whatever. I don't understand, and I don't wish to understand."
"Hahaha... I guess you're right, it's not really something that easy to understand. However, Aliyah looks very lonely, you know. Although you're always with everyone, Aliyah is very lonely."
I pondered for a moment, and that indeed seems to be the case.
Tai Shixi, Bai Yueguang and Hei Luoli always stay together. Although Ms. Mari do not usually talk, she would often chat with Dale. Oyado and Purewhite have always pestered Fir tirelessly...
But, I'm tired...
Really, ever since I left the academy and arrived in the Eastern Continent, I, who did not have Princess Michelle and Pryn to talk to, really feel like a completely lonely existence.
Even Fir is ignoring me...
Always, ignoring me...
Just why am I being conflicted about this? Someone who completely doesn't care about me, why do I have to care about him...?
"You're right, this place has got actually nothing to do with me at all."
Looking at Lois's skeptical look, I smiled as I opened up my own menu.
I basically have yet to touch the Rogue Class's main questline, and I don't know how I'm supposed to progress the Dual-swordsman Class's main questline ever since I left the academy.
Also, after drinking that Wolf Transformation Potion, I even gained an additional Wolfman side questline, and in the end, I didn't get to touch it at all.
But now, I seem to somehow know the location of the beastmen, if possible...
"Lois, does your guild have any beastmen, elves or other people like that?"
"Beastmen and elves? Let me think. There might be some in the northern branch, but it's only occasionally... Ehhhh~ What are thinking of doing?"
After hearing this, I nodded satisfyingly. Grabbing onto the Lois, I sprinted towards the direction of the station.
"Obviously, to play. It's been a long time since you met the people of your mercenary guild, right?"
"That's right... But, is this really alright? Leaving Fir and the rest behind?"
I turned my head and smiled. Then, I raised Lois's chin.
"Rather, those group of people, without us, will be able to do things more easily~ Or are you saying you're not willing to bring me there?"
"No, no, no! I'm obviously willing!"
Lois nodded like a little chick pecking on rice grains.
"Then... let us set off!"
