I Was the Heroine, and in the Sequel, Even Though I'm a Mob, All of My Stats Are Maxed Out - Chapter 54
Translated by: ShinigamiTori
I could hear the normal breathing of Alvin-sama, who was sleeping on my lap. His complexion was much better than before, and the bleeding from his abdomen seemed to have almost stopped.
Our hands remained tied as the curse was still in place and he still needed the magic supply.
Feeling relieved that Alvin-sama’s cold hand was now warm, I patted my chest, knowing that if things continued as they were, he would be fine.
“…. I’m really glad.”
Alvin-sama, who woke up only once, was confused by the situation, but in the end said, “Thank you.”
He seemed to have tolerated me a little. The fact that he was sleeping peacefully by my side like this was probably the best proof.
I closed my eyes as well, letting the magic flow over the magic circle.
“…. You… won’t leave me?”
“Will you really die with me?”
I couldn’t get Alvin-sama’s words from earlier out of my mind for a long time.
I could now understand why he asked such questions and why he had been so cold towards me so far.
“I didn’t want to have you. I wish you had died in my belly.”
“Kill him, not me…!”
──While I was pouring him with my magic, Alvin-sama’s emotions and memories flowed into me all at once.
Pain, suffering, hardship, loneliness, sadness. All these negative emotions made my chest tighten painfully.
Alvin-sama’s past memories were too sad. It would be natural for him not to believe or want to believe in anyone anymore.
I couldn’t help but pray that one day he would find someone he could trust.
Suddenly, I started to feel dizzy.
I knew that I was weakening both physically and mentally, probably because I was using a large amount of mana while I was on edge all the time.
Nevertheless, I promised Alvin-sama that I’d never abandon him. His eyes slowly opened at the same time as I regained my spirit and resolved to do my best.
“Yes. How are you feeling?”
After he fell asleep again, I had taken the liberty of putting him in my lap to make it easier for him to sleep, so he seemed surprised.
I was also inwardly surprised that he called me “Nina” so naturally. It was the first time Alvin-sama had called me by my name like this.
It was like we were getting closer, and it made me kind of happy.
“I’m sorry, I didn’t realize I had fallen asleep again….”
“No, I’m sure you’re feeling pretty drained right now, so please try to get as much rest as you can.”
When I asked him to continue to rest, he tightened his hold on my hand and apologized again.
“Alvin-sama has nothing to apologize for. It’s my job to treat injuries in the first place, but everyone was too strong, so I’ve been slacking off until now.”
“…. Nina is very kind.”
Even the tone of his voice was gentler than before. Maybe he opened up a little bit to me because I risked my life to save him.
“Sorry for the inconvenience. I think I’ll be able to move soon, so please let me stay like this for a little while longer.”
“Yes! Of course.”
I was relieved to hear that he could move soon. Everyone must be worried about us.
They probably never imagined that we would be conversing with each other like this, and there would be nothing but anxiety regarding the combination.
“Thank you. I’ll be sure to thank you properly when we get out of here.”
“You don’t need to thank me for that. But I would be happy if you could talk to me like this in the future.”
When I requested that, Alvin-sama opened his eyes wide in surprise and he then lowered his eyebrows.
“…. I can do that.”
Alvin-sama, with his long eyelashes downcast, seemed to feel guilty about his past attitude toward me.
“I apologize for showing you something unpleasant.”
“I’m the one who saw it without permission… I’m sorry.”
He was probably talking about his past memories that I had seen. I was sure he didn’t want a stranger to see such a sensitive part of his life, and I felt apologetic for him.
“It’s something you can’t control, so please don’t apologize… and, if you don’t mind, may I get to know more about Nina?”
“….. About me?”
The unexpected request made me puzzled. I had thought that Alvin-sama had no interest in me.
My thoughts must have shown on my face because he soon smiled, a little troubled.
“Given my attitude so far, I understand that it’s too straightforward. Still, I want to know about Nina.”
I hurriedly shook my head when he said that.
“I-I don’t have an interesting story to tell you, but if that’s okay….”
I nodded repeatedly and Alvin-sama said, “Good,” and smiled like a child.
It was the first time I had ever seen him smile, and for some reason it made me want to tear up a little. I managed to smile and opened my mouth.
“Once again, my name is Nina, and I’m 16 years old.”
“So, Nina is three years younger than me…. It’s crazy to know that now after so many months together.”
“No, I don’t know Lara-san’s age either, so it’s all right!”
If I followed up immediately after his words, Alvin-sama would loosen his mouth and say, “Nina is really a kind girl.”
I didn’t know that he was such a kind-hearted person who could smile so gently. I continued while supplying him with my magic power.
“In my original world, I went to school.”
“Nina must have loved school.”
“Do you understand? I didn’t get along very well with my family, so I was able to just be myself while I was at school….”
I didn’t want to stay in that house, and I remembered desperately trying to spend as much time as possible at school.
“…. You don’t have to say more if you don’t want to.”
“That… I don’t think it’s a good story, but I’d be happy if you could listen to it.”
It was unfair for me to remain silent, and I was sure I had wanted someone to listen to me all this time.
I didn’t want to tell my friends because I didn’t want them to worry or feel sorry for me.
“──I’m not related to anyone in my family by blood.”
And so, I began to talk about my family.
