Episode 16: leaving the village!

“Stella. Is what you said the truth?”

“Yeah… I’m not a human being… I was tasked to observe Nina-chan and Yu.”

(TL note: oh no! What is this? I didn’t believe I translate it wrong but since the word was split with… It have a 5% of being wrong.)

Stella already had trouble breathing.

“Stella, please have a peace of mind. I will protect Yu. It’s only natural, because he is my friend.”

“Thank you… Nina-chan… Yu… you make… my life… worth it……”

Stella let out her last breath. Her face was smiling and calm. Nina couldn’t hold back her tears.

“Stella… rest.. in.. peace…”

8 hours later, Yu came back. He saw crying Nina and fell down on his knees after realizing that Stella wasn’t moving anymore.

“I… was too late…. No…. There’s still time…”

He couldn’t accept her death. Yu tried to make her drink the potion he made. It has dripped down from her mouth.

“Grandmother.. Please, drink… Please…”

There was no reply from Stella.

“Aaaaaaaahhhrrggghhh..”

I applied heal on her body. I healed her using a much greater amount of mana than that usually required by a normal heal. However, there was no effect. Heal is a magic for restoring the received damage.

For the dead.. It was useless…

When his MP ran out, Yu sank down to his knees.

“Yu… Huhuhu….”

I didn’t realize that there was a stream of water coming out from my eyes.

After a while, Yu and Nina calmed down. They have discussed on what to do next.

“Let’s make a grave for her.” With her eyes still reddened, Nina said to the sitting Yu.

“Stella-san said that she was glad that she could spend her days with you.”

“She wasn’t suffering? Living with me.. Did she really say that?”

“Yu, she was smiling in the end.”

I looked at grandma’s face and realized.

“We will bury her tomorrow. Let me stay with her tonight.”

“Okay…”

“I wonder what should I do now.”

“I’ll go to Comer city. There are lots of monsters there and I need to get used to male adventurers. It was also Stella’s request.”

“Please don’t go.. Without grandma.. Without you.. There is no reason for me to stay.”

“Of course you are coming with me. Aren’t we friends?”

That day I stayed at grandma Stella’s side without sleeping. In the morning I erected a grave for her.

“Grandmother, I’ll be leaving the village. When I come back I will bring you lots of souvenirs. I’ll even tell you about my journey. Please look after me.”

“Stella, please leave Yu to me. I’m also an adventurer, so there should be no problem.”

“Oh? Is that coming out from someone whom I train?”

“I’m older than you! Humph.”

She was pouting but it was just a joke. I bowed to her and said “Thank you.”.

I left as soon as possible. If I were to stay any longer I might have started grieving again. Honestly, I don’t know when I will return to this village.

We had to move through the village to reach the town. We met several villagers on the way.

“You guys, what’s with your appearances and luggage. Are you going to leave the village?”

The way villagers talked with Nina was different from when they talked to me. However, Nina’s expression was grim.

“Because grandma is dead, I have no reason to stay here anymore. You have been trying to kick me out anyway. So it’s benefitting both of us.”

“But, we are lacking adventurers. Only you and Sermat are left. And who is this grandma?”

I feel that something is weird. Was that sarcasm? He was the one that told me that grandma Stella overworked herself. Is he playing the fool?

(Tl note: here is our author grand ability: confusion.. Nina and the villager was talking then he put Yu inner monologue.)

“It’s grandma Stella!”

“Stella?”

The expression of the villager turned strange.

“Yu, let’s go.”

I wanted to talk but Nina pulled my hand.

——–
“Chief… How dare they leave us like that. Anyway, did any of you know Stella?”

“No.. It’s the first time I hear that name.”

(tl note: what is this? Confusion master author)
——
“Nina.. My aim is to be the strongest adventurer.”

“Don’t worry. With my power and yours combined, we can aim to be the strongest easily.”

“Oh? Where is that confidence coming from?”

Finally, after almost a year after I have arrived in this world, I left the village to become an adventurer.

(TL note: did we have that much time slip? Anyway the first arc of village is ended. Is it the end of the first book? Idk because I translated from the WN. The chapter was shorter but it took more time to translate thanks for the author confusion skill lol)

  1. How dare the leave after we abused them so much… they high on herbs? Its not a time skip. its just how much time past while living with grandma stella. The training arc that lasted months didn’t seem like months due to the authors skillz (lol) so we didn’t notice.

  2. Jeez! AGh! I want to punch his face! Being that ignorant! Jeez!

    — Thanks for the chapter~ ^^

  3. I ‘m kinda’ fond of this series but damn, it could really need some more details & proper build up

    “Welp, finished fighting the dungeon boss.”
    “Suddenly I’m dying now, also I’m not human *urk*.”
    “Oh no, grandma’s dead! I’m sad now.”
    “Lets leave the village!”

    Like some proper pacing would be nice author person guy!

    • Behold, the author’s special skill: Master of Confusion lvl 10

      Yeah, I agree, the author needs to learn a proper pacing…
      I can somewhat understand it, but a proper pacing is also good

    • Well it is a web novel for a reason. As it is, the story was written by an amateur or beginner author that is not affiliated by any publishing company or whatever. They don’t have editors that can point their mistakes such as unexplained events, plot holes, grammatical errors, sudden events without much meaning and such. If the translators translate the light novel version, things may make sense as it is more polished (or not… since I did say it MAY).

  4. wow people were not lying when they said that most original WN has a lot of problems because they are written by amateurs unlike the officially published LN. I mean this story has pacing issues, dialogues confusion, lack of character building & exploration and no explanations of the some terms inside such some abilities. I’m not dissing on your hard work of translating, just the story itself. Now I know that good WN like Forgotten Conqueror is just really hard to find. I’m still reading this though

  5. It doesn’t seems the villagers hate Yu anymore. Does the treatment of him by the villagers especially the guild branch leader has anything to do with Stella? Was the badly treatment against Yu were supposed to help him on his path to become another Demon King?

  6. dude thanks for the chapter!! 😀 😀

    just saying this but.

    “Yeah… I’m not a human being… I was tasked to observe Nina-chan and Yu.”

    can be read as.

    “Yeah… I’m not a human being… Nina-chan I was tasked to observe Yu.”

  7. I think there memories were just deleted, you know she is a higher being, was send here blababla died and boum! Memories deleted

  8. Stella said that he is not a human being so i think she erased her existence completely in the memories of everyone.
    She might be an existence like a god…
    Of their world. In the first place the background of stella is very mysterious
