I Was the Heroine, and in the Sequel, Even Though I'm a Mob, All of My Stats Are Maxed Out - Chapter 14.1
Translated by: ShinigamiTori
There Are Too Many Things I Don’t Understand
“S-So, what happened?”
“Somehow, the magic in that potion was all silver! It seems that people who can use holy magic like us are making them in large quantities, and Alvin-sama told Owen-san to find them and bring them to him!”
It was the worst possible thing that could have happened. I didn’t expect that power from Erica-san’s eyes.
Even though I disguised the appearance of the potion and went through the normal appraisal process, everything would be for nothing if it passed through her eyes.
Honestly, I didn’t think I could get away with it if it were against Owen.
When I turned my gaze to Bruno while wondering what to do, he shrugged, unable to help me. I understood how he felt. At the very least, I wanted to keep him out of it.
“But what are we going to do after we find the person making the potions?”
“Who knows? They didn’t do anything wrong, so maybe they should work for the country or something like that?”
Theo said that in response to Erica-san’s question, but thinking back, I was already suspected of being a sinner as the former saintess. I thought it was a good opportunity to ask about the matter.
“Excuse me, I’m sorry to ask this, but did the former saintess do something bad?”
Then Theo revealed his displeasure, “What?”
“Nina would never do such a thing. Who told you that?”
“There seems to be a rumor going around among the people that if you mention the name of the former saintess, you will be imprisoned. They said that Alvin-sama said so…. That’s why I think she did something bad.”
“Alvin? No way.”
Theo, who had said it was absolutely impossible, tilted his head curiously.
Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Bruno react to the name “Nina.” I had a feeling that he, with his good instincts, would have noticed something by now. It was rather strange that these two didn’t notice.
“Why did you bring that up…. Oh, I remember now.”
“Dirk was always talking about Nina and fretting about her, so Alvin snapped at him and told him to cut it out. Then they got into a fistfight.”
While I was touched that Dirk missed me so much, I didn’t know why talking about me would cause Alvin-sama and Dirk to fight each other.
I felt apologetic for them, even though I was also a victim because of that. It was sad to see a fight between friends. I was relieved that they seemed to have made up now.
“So, if I remember correctly, I think Alvin said that if Dirk mentioned Nina’s name again next time, he would be thrown in jail. That time, it was quite a big deal, and there were onlookers, so I guess that’s how the rumor started.”
“I-I see…. Ah, but the rumor also said that if he found the former saintess, he won’t let her out for the rest of her life.”
“That’s right. It would be a problem if Nina disappeared again.”
I was confused as to what he meant, but Theo continued.
“We all like Nina too, but Alvin is different from us.”
“Alvin needs Nina.”
