Using the Hero Who Likes Me Too Much, I Intended To Live Longer in This Life, but Maybe I Failed Again – Chapter 4

Chapter 4: Reunion Too Early

“Yawn. . .Good morning, Grandma.”

“Oh, good morning, Lise.”

The day after I went to the capital, I overslept a little due to fatigue from the journey. I stretched widely, got up, and passed through the tattered cloth curtain serving as a door.

And there, Grandma was having breakfast. She has been living with me in this village ever since I came here. She is a kind and wonderful person.

Actually, she is a wealthy noble, but for some reason, she has been living in this village as an eccentric. It seems she likes it here.

“I slept a lot because I was tired, sorry.”

“It’s fine. Thank you as always.”

“No need to thank me, I’ll start working as soon as I finish getting ready.”

I quickly had breakfast, prepared myself, tied my hair up high, and left the small house that we called home.

And so, after finishing the extraordinary experience in the capital, today was supposed to be an ordinary day just like any other. That’s what I thought.

“Good morning, Lisette-sama.”

The beautiful man I met at the party yesterday was inexplicably tilling our field. I couldn’t understand why. 

As soon as he saw me, he had a smile brighter than the sun.

“Um, why are you. . .?”

“It feels good to move your body like this.”

“So, what are you doing. . .?”

“For the sake of Lisette-sama, I feel like I can do anything.”

“Uh. . .”

He seemed very happy about something, but the conversation wasn’t making any sense. I hope he’s okay.

Come to think of it. . .Why is a noble’s son, who was in the capital, tilling a field in this countryside? It’s too incomprehensible and scary.

“Yesterday’s attire was lovely, but today’s appearance is healthy and good as well. You look good in anything, after all.”

Moreover, he said that while looking at me wearing tattered clothes for farm work. 

I thought he was making fun of me, but he seemed to be saying it seriously. Is there something wrong with his eyes or head?

“Is the field okay like this?”

“Uh, yes. Thank you very much. . .” 

And he had already finished the work that Grandma and I would have taken several days to complete.

For a noble’s son, he was too efficient. His work was far from that of an amateur.

“Lisette-sama, what else can I do for you?”

“Um, please wait a moment.”

Furthermore, it seemed he intended to continue working.

There were too many points to question, and I felt like panicking. But I needed to talk to him anyway. After taking a small deep breath, I opened my mouth.

“Um, if I remember correctly, it was Ralph-sama. . .right?”

“Yes, you remembered my name. Thank you.”

“Well, I just heard it yesterday.”

“It feels like a dream. . .I’m so happy I could cry.”

Even though I just confirmed his name, he had an overwhelming sense of happiness, as if flowers were blooming all around him, and a deeply content expression on his face.

Unable to keep up with the current situation, I started feeling dizzy. I pointed to a nearby tree stump and suggested, “Anyway, why don’t we sit down?” 

Then he took out a handkerchief from his chest and spread it out for me, and he sat down a little away. He was needlessly chivalrous.

“Um, Ralph-sama. . .”

“Just call me Ralph, Lisette-sama.”

“No, it’s not like that. . .”

“Please, I want you to call me that.”

“Uh. . .”

“Please stop using honorifics.”

It was too troublesome, so I decided to call him that. This is not the social world; it’s just the countryside. There’s no one to reprimand me.

If I called him Ralph as he requested, he would smile happily like a child and say, “Yes.” It confused me.

“Why are you living here, Lisette-sama?”

“I like this village.”

I have been asked the same question by many people countless times. They find it strange that a young woman willingly lives in a place like this.

However, I can’t tell them that I have been continuously killed by monsters since my previous life. So, I always answer like this. 

“I don’t like the nobility, and I plan to spend my whole life here.”

After clearly conveying that, he murmured, “I see. I need to get used to living here too.”

. . .And why is that?
