Suterareta Yuusha no Eiyuutan (3-4)

So, Miare says “ne” at the end of almost everything she says.


Story 3-4 『Reunion』

“Hm hm hmm” (Tamaki)

Tamaki was humming in a good mood nearby. She had changed from her adventurer clothes into some attire more suited to a young woman.

She put on a thin pink shirt covered by a light blue sweatshirt and some jean shorts.

According to her they were easy to move in. That was the reason Tamaki gave.

“Ah, Yuji-san.” (Miare)

After finishing her work, Miare-san, who was wearing her business suit, called out my alias as I neared the entrance.

“I’m sorry, did you have to wait long?” (Daichi)

“No, I just now arrived.” (Miare)

“That’s good. Please come in, it is troublesome to talk standing around.” (Daichi)

I urged her to enter. She followed into the inn after us.

“… That’s…” (Miare)

Miare-san’s line of sight was on mine and Tamaki’s hands—our ring fingers in particular—and alternated between them.

… I know what you want to say. Tamaki’s strategy was working well, and I had to suppress a laugh.

“Is there something wrong?” (Daichi)

“N-no… Ah, that reminds me, to what extent do you want information about the hero Samejima? More or less, as far as I know I am aware of all of what has been gathered.” (Miare)

“I don’t mind. Is just half of the 5000 col fee fine?” (Daichi)

“Eh-. No, this money is Yuji-san’s reward…” (Miare)

“Then, I’ve received the full amount, and I give this lady half.” (Daichi)

“But… is that really ok?” (Miare)

“Yeah. Because I’ve received the reward. Please enjoy yourself a little with the money. You must be worn out from this month.” (Daichi)

It’s not that I proposed this to her because I sympathized with her being abused by Samejima.

It’s called hush money.

I don’t think that she would tell anyone, but this is just in case. After all, it was a verbal promise to give her half.

Only the fact that she received money remained. If people knew about it, her position in the guild would fall. At worst, Miare-san could be kicked from the guild.

Something like that was sure to be noticed by her. It was within her intelligence to understand.

“Thank you for your concern.” (Miare)

“We appreciate your continued support. Now, please. Sit.” (Daichi)

While conversing, we came to the room and I opened the door. Inside, Shuri had prepared drinks. Leadred was in another room on standby.

“Then, excuse me.” (Miare)

“Yes. Shall we begin?” (Daichi)

After Miare-san entered the room, I closed the door and began the confidential exchange.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

In conclusion, the information Miare-san brought was more than expected.

The range and times of Samejima’s actions. What kind of items he bought. The inn he was using. The kinds of magic he was confirmed to use. The predicted path he would take to the dungeon. The roster and dates of female adventurers he took that were not heroes.

She laid out all of the information she had.

“How was it? Was it to your satisfaction?” (Miare)

“Yeah, very much so. How do you have that information?” (Daichi)

When I asked for her true intention, Miare-san’s facial expression took on a distant look.

“I’m the only person in the guild who isn’t captivated by Samejima right? Though, that guy is very persistent, Mainly in bragging and making passes though.” (Miare)

“Ha ha ha…” (Daichi)

I could only laugh dryly. For her, an inhabitant of this world, to denounce him as a hero…

“A braggart like him is no good… if I had to say, I prefer men like Yuji-san… no.” (Miare)

Miare-san ran her hand from my check to my neck, then drifted to my arm, before eventually resting it on my hand.

An obvious invitation. Unlike her appearance before, she had the obscene atmosphere of a prostitute.

“I wonder if I should call you ‘hero of demons’-san?” (Miare)

Those words were enough to give me a shock.

“——!?” (Daichi)

As a conditioned reflex, I took and my sword and brandished it in my hand. I put the shining blade to Miare’s neck.

Nevertheless, she continues with her bewitching smile. She was composed.

“… You, who are you?” (Daichi)

“Oh? You didn’t hear from Messiah-chan?” (Miare)

“… That goddess again…?” (Daichi)

I’m fed up with hearing that familiar name.

I understand that Miare must have a close relationship with her to call her Messiah-chan.

We may have met a troublesome person…

“… Good grief.” (Daichi)

“Really? I would have thought she would tell you… Then, I’ll introduce myself again.” (Miare)

Saying so, she leaned forward in order to emphasize her breasts.

“I am Miare Pharma. One of the six generals, and a succubus. ‘Hero of demons’-san, I will be cooperating with you. For the sake of reviving demons.

I called in Leadred who was waiting in the next room to find out if Miare was the real deal.

With her attitude changed, we resumed the discussion.

“You know… if you were an ally from the start why didn’t you tell us? It wasn’t necessary for us to bother going through the proper procedures…” (Daichi)

“Because, if I said something like that out of nowhere, wouldn’t it be suspicious? However, I thought that since I skillfully conveyed something so easy for you to understand, you would have realized.” (Miare)

“Uu-“ (Daichi)

She hit where it hurt.

As Miare said, if I calmed down to think about it everything happened ideally. Though, even so, I felt uneasy that her scheme was carried out easily.

Yesterday, didn’t Tamaki heal what was weighing on my mind, damnit…

I was angry at myself differently than usual.

“… What’s wrong? You have on a scary face.” (Miare)

Miare poked my cheek with a *TsunTsun*.

“… Cut it out. Continuing from before, what was that about six generals?” (Daichi)

“You really don’t know huh, Hero-san. Why did Akina-chan also not tell you? Haven’t you two been together for a while…” (Miare)

Miare was preaching to Leadred who was sitting on the bed like she was being punished.

“… Sorry. I left that out because I wasn’t interested in the Six Demon Generals. It was fine as long as I could fight someone strong…” (Leadred)

Miare sighed at Leadred’s reply. She seemed more like the image of a worldly man than a succubus.

“It hasn’t changed, your weakness for fighting… It’s fine, I’ll teach you. Because of that, Hero-san, call me Miare-sensei.” (Miare)

Miare wrapped around the hand I had on top of the table.

“Refused.” (Daichi)

“So heartless… people like that aren’t popular you know?” (Miare)

“The spots on both of my sides are taken.” (Daichi)

“… Hmph.” (Miare)

Miare alternated her gaze between Shuri and Tamaki, the two I just mentioned. She seemed to be evaluating them.

“One looks good… though the other one is no good…” (Miare)

The words she murmured disappeared before reaching our ears.

Her serious expression changed completely, and turned into a dubious smile.

“So you know about the Six Demon Generals?” (Miare)

“That’s right. Well, I understand half of it.” (Daichi)

Akina Leadred and Fantra Angas came to mind. These guys were strong and sealed at the bottoms of dungeons.

“I think’s it’s good that Hero-san has thought about it. Messiah-chan nominated the strongest of each of the clans to serve as one of the Six Demon Generals.” (Miare)

She held up five fingers in total, and folded one each time she said someone’s name.

“Akina Leadred of the Oni tribe, Fantra Angas of the Undead tribe, Miare Pharma of the Succubus tribe, Lily Shuraham of the Beastman tribe, and Garfunkel Arthnight of the Dragonman tribe.” (Miare)

“Isn’t there supposed to be six people?” (Daichi)

“In truth there is the also the demi-human tribe but… the hero Terias wiped them out.” (Miare)

“Their entire race?” (Daichi)

That scale was impossible to laugh at. The thought that there was someone like that, it made me shiver. Crazy.

“That’s right, Terias held a monstrous strength… I lost my body fighting him. But, thanks to Messiah-chan I was somehow able to survive. Everyone else was sealed, though.” (Miare)

She looked up at the ceiling, as though yearning for something. She was smiling sadly.

She’s probably remembering those days.

“So, I’ve been hiding my form with magic and living quietly… But, recently, I received some interesting news.” (Miare)

“… That was…” (Daichi)

“Yeah. The hero summoning. Since that day I’ve been scrounging up as much information about that nasty guy for you?” (Miare)

“… Ah, thank you. You’ve really helped me.” (Daichi)

Miare said it like a light joke, though it was easy to see that she must have risked her life to gather it.

A demon repeatedly being in contact with a hero was equal to suicide. Her magic may have been caught one day. Then herself killed.

Under those circumstances she gathered this much information. It’s only natural to thank her.

“You are welcome… Well, guess I’ll go home.” (Miare)

Miare rose from her seat and shouldered her bag as she tried to leave the room.

“What? You can stay longer you know? Don’t you have things to talk about with Leadred?” (Daichi)

“In truth I was also thinking that I’d stay until later tonight to receive Hero-san’s thick liquid… though with that child here I’ll pass. As expected, it’s impossible.” (Miare) [TN: Last sentence has the implication that she wants to even though it is impossible]

Miare looked at Shuri—no, Tamaki and said that.

“Eh, me?” (Tamaki)

“You guys, I think you make a good match. Enjoy yourselves tonight… good luck.” (Miare)

Miare winked and left the room after purposefully adding that last part.

That woman, dropping a bomb like that at the last moment…!

When I looked back, Tamaki’s face was a bright red, Shuri’s face had solidified into a smile, and Leadred was worrying.

… How will I solve this misunderstanding!?

Half out of desperation, the condition to survive was to sleep together tonight, about three hours or so.

◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆◇◆

It was early in the morning before the sun had risen.

With the information from Miare, after sleeping shortly with Shuri, we were ready to depart for the dungeon.

Indeed, Shuri was prudent in the last dungeon capture. She was dissatisfied with the method.

“With this are we ready?” (Daichi)

Potions and elixirs were in the pouch. The Yanu leafs were put in. I put the dagger and long sword in their scabbard on my back.

“I am also ready.” (Shuri)

Shuri also seemed to have finished. This time is different from usual, she is wearing a uniform for adventurers. She seems to have bought it yesterday.

She didn’t wear a protector over her top because of the ordinary woman’s size, though she did wear metal gauntlets. Shuri also put her dagger over her shorts she wore on her healthy thighs.

She gave the rough impression of a thief from a game.

“Alright, then, let’s go.” (Daichi)

When I opened the door, Tamaki’s group had already finished their preparations and were leaning against the wall.

“Ah, you finally came out. You’re late.” (Tamaki)

“Did you have fun?” (Leadred)

“Leadred-san!” (Shuri)

“You three need to quiet down, it’s still early. It’s not the time to enjoy yourselves.” (Daichi)

We leave the inn having that conversation. According to Miare’s information, Samejima should still be sleeping at the inn right now.

That guy goes to the dungeon every day, from noon to eight at night. It looks like they have capture three floors each time.

The【Scorching Execution Ground】was not that far from Russell as can be seen from it being visited as a day trip. It’s about a thirty minute walk from here.

We were walking on the road to the dungeon.

“… Come to think of it.” (Tamaki)

Tamaki casually said as she lined up next to me.

By the way, Shuri was pouting and wouldn’t come near me, as is with Leadred behind me.

“Katsuragi’s plans for the future. Will you not tell me?” (Tamaki)

“… … We’ll talk in the dungeon.” (Daichi)

“Wait, at that time. You forgot.” (Tamaki)

“… I’m ashamed. When Miare talked to us it flew away.” (Daichi)

“Geez, will you get a grip? … Well, we shouldn’t mind relying on each other. She said we s-suited each other…” (Tamaki)

“Depending on you is really embarrassing. We even bought something like rings.” (Daichi)

I looked at the ring that I had put on my right hand. A similar one was on Tamaki’s left ring finger.

Tamaki set the location at her convenience. There was no ulterior motive… though, I’ll wear it to the bitter end.

“… Oh well. I’m also embarrassed from relying on you.” (Tamaki)

“Rather, that is better.” (Daichi)

According to Miare’s story, the last two demons are sealed in dungeons. One from the Beastman tribe and the other from the Dragonman tribe.

… Why do both bring nothing but a warlike image to mind?

I shook my head from left to right to rid myself of the unpleasant images.

“What’s wrong suddenly?” (Tamaki)

“… No, it’s nothing. Rather, look. I can see it.” (Daichi)

I pointed forward to the entrance of the dungeon that rose ahead of us. Then, a girl of around the same age as us slowly walked into our view.

With black hair that extended to her waist and adventurer’s clothes that looked like ours. With red eyes different from Leadred’s. She had a quiet atmosphere that was emphasized by her stereotypical Japanese feminine virtues.

However, where was this déjà vu feeling coming from?

“… … -san.” (—)

I saw her mouth move. She was crying.

Crying and smiling.

It looked as if she was meeting a lover she was separated from for many years.

She started walking faster, and was eventually running—and leaped into my chest.

“I wanted to meet you, Yuji-san!!” (—)

  1. Thanks for the chapter. And Demi-Human was always the race that get to survive the most in other novels. But in here, the Hero Erased every Demi-Human. Damn, just how much of those Human hate Non-Human being?

    1. there is a reason why the 1st hero erase every demi-human and it will be explained in the latter chapter

      as a side-note the war is started by the bitch and the yandere goddess which created human and demon respectively after all so of course they basically hate each other…… though the existence of demi-human originally should soften both side hate-ness so killing them will spark war between human and demon…. i guess that’s what the bitch goddess goal

  2. And thus the yandere has arrived…

    Group dynamics are probably about to be massively fucked up momentarily.

  3. >>「私はあのギルドでただ一人、鮫島の虜になっていないでしょう? だから、あの男、色々としつこいのです。自慢話と口説きが主ですが」
    >>“Aren’t I the only person in that guild that isn’t captivated by Samejima? Though, that man is persistent in many ways. Mainly in bragging and persuasion.” (Miare)
    To rephrase:
    “I’m the only person in the guild who isn’t captivated by Samejime right? So, that guy, is very obstinate. Bragging and making passes.”

    >>“A man like his is no good… if I had to say, I prefer men like Yuji-san… no.” (Miare)
    “him” not “his”
    Also, I’d change it to “A braggart like him is no good.” Since that’s probably the best way to define 俺様系.

    >>聞き覚えのある名前にウンザリする。
    >>I cringed from hearing her name said with such familiarity.
    I’m fed up with hearing a certain name.

    >>でも、あれだけわかりやすいくらいに上手く事が運んでいたら気づくと思ったんだけどなぁ」
    >>“Because, if I said something like that abruptly would it be suspicious? Though, it was fortunate that I thought you realized.” (Miare)
    Typo on author’s part. It should be ‘運んで’ so… “Though, I thought you’d realize when things were progressing so well.” Basically, she’s saying she thought he’d be suspicious with how easy things were going for them.

    >>“… It was…” (Daichi)
    “…that was..”

    >>A demon repeatedly being in contact with a hero was equal to suicide. Her magic may have been caught one day. Then killed.
    “Then herself killed.”

    >>“What? It’s ok to stay longer you know? Don’t you have things to talk about with Leadred?” (Daichi)
    “You can stay longer you know?”

    >>“In truth I was also thinking that I’d stay until later tonight to receive Hero-san’s dark liquid… though with that child here I’ll pass. As expected, it’s impossible.” (Miare) [TN: Last sentence has the implication that she wants to even though it is impossible]
    Not “dark”, It’s “thick.” “濃い” is something you see when talking about liquid consistency. Like a thick soup or it this case, A succubus’ favorite meal.

    >>When I looked back, Tamaki’s face was a bright red, Shuri’s face had solidified into a smile, and Leadred was worrying.

    >>半ばヤケクソになりながら本日の夜も共に寝るという条件で事なきを得たのは、この三時間後であった。
    >>Out of desperation, the condition to survive without further problems was to sleep together, it took three hours.
    ‘While half out of desperation, the condition to survive was to sleep together tonight, 3 hours after’ or so.

    「三人とも朝だから静かにな。それとお楽しみはしていない」
    “You three need to quiet down, it’s still early. It’s not time to enjoy yourselves.” (Daichi)
    For the latter sentence. I think he’s saying that he didn’t have fun. Which was in response to Leadred’s comment.

    >>「何よ、その間。あんた、忘れていたわね」
    >>“Well, in the meantime, don’t forget it.” (Tamaki)
    Literally? “What, that time. You, forgot(it)”
    Most likely, she’s thinks he forgot. Kinda like “What’s with that, you forgot it didn’t you?”

    >>「……面目ない。ついミアレの一件で頭から飛んでいた」
    >>“… I’m ashamed. From the beginning, Miare flew past us in one case.” (Daichi)
    Not “From the beginning” in this case. He’s saying it(whatever future plans his had) flew from his head because of the matter with Miare.

    >>“Geez, will you get a grip? … Well, we shouldn’t mind relying on her. She said we s-suited each other…” (Tamaki)
    From this point on I’m gonna refer you to my final paragraph at the bottom. But basically, they aren’t talking about relying on Miare but each other.

    >>「本当に困った時は頼るよ。そんな時のためにこんな指輪まで買ったからな」
    >>“Depending on her was really embarrassing. We even bought rings for times like that.” (Daichi)
    Same as above.
    >>I looked at the ring that I had put on my right hand. The same thing was on Tamaki’s left ring finger.
    “Same one” or “A similar one” would probably flow better.

    >>Tamaki set the location at her convenience. There was no ulterior motive… though, I’ll wear it to the bitter end.
    This isn’t quite right. First sentence is about Tamaki most likely putting the ring on Daichi’s finger forcefully. After the second sentence. It’s kinda broken, but literally it’s like: “…to the end, for I, but” Based on context, I’d gather he meant she wasn’t being vicious in the process, having no bad feelings towards him. Makes me think that the ring is some kinda of suicide bomb on his end or so. regardless, it’s vague as fuck. you probably need to revisit this line after you find out what the rings are for.

    >>「むしろ、そっちの方が好ましいけどな」
    >>“… Oh well. I’m was also embarrassed from relying on her.” (Tamaki)
    I assume you meant to copy: 「……それもそうね。私も困ったら頼るからね」
    More on this convo a few lines down.

    >>「むしろ、そっちの方が好ましいけどな」
    “In fact, that is preferred.” (Daichi)
    Okay. So basically. the conversation is about Daichi’s future plans, which have something to do with the rings he and Tamaki have. I haven’t read far enough ahead to know what they do, but what ever it is, they need to rely on each other for it. The purpose of the rings hasn’t been disclosed yet, so all this is vague as fuck and sounds more like Daichi and Tamaki got hitched and gotta rely on each other like husband and wife.

    1. Alright, just made all of the changes.

      Now, for my thoughts on the rings. Pretty huge stuff but..

      I think they are just standard rings. They made ‘secret’ proposals and are too embarrassed to say anything, unlike how Daichi normally acts with Shuri he has trouble dealing honestly with Tamaki. This is their way of showing what they feel without talking about it. That’s why Daichi won’t move the ring that Tamaki put on him, no matter what. It would be the same as denying her, which would be a way of him admitting what he did himself.

      … Well, something like that.

  4. why am I not surprised that the previous hero wiped out an entire race? Maybe because of Samejima I had a feeling all of the “heroes” Claria favors are sumbags
