Yes, the Troubled Saintess (Temporary) Who Was Summoned Is Me ~I Was Expelled for Not Having Magical Power, but I Will Team Up With a Handsome Summoner To Save the World!~ – Chapter 10

Chapter 10: Rocked by a Horsedrawn Carriage

We briskly walked through the market alley and entered a tavern.

Both of us ordered cold ale. As soon as the ale was brought to us, we gulped it down and took a breath before discussing.

“If it’s a dark red little bird, I think it’s Brent Baynes, the captain of the wizard unit. Do you remember him? He had a gentle-looking beard.”

“Oh, that guy. The one who said he won’t send me back to my original world and has no intention of doing so.”

“He said that? Did you ask for the reason?”

“Just because your personal summoner messed up their whole life. But more importantly, I might have been seen too. You and I, who shouldn’t have been summoned, being together, I wonder if it’s okay.”

“Yeah, it’s definitely not good. I didn’t expect this. . .”

“What? Don’t give up halfway.”

“I’m considering the worst-case scenario, but. . . I feel like it would be better for us not to be in the capital.”

There’s no way we’ll be killed, right? I tried to laugh it off, but I couldn’t feel relieved when I remembered their dry response when it was revealed that I had no magical power. Keeping myself alive has its risks, but there are no benefits. Looking back now, I’m grateful they didn’t eliminate me and let me out of the castle.

“Haru, would you like to leave the capital with me?”

“It’s a coincidence. I was about to say the same thing.”

The two of us then left through the back door and headed straight to the inn called Aura. I looked up several times. There were no tiny birds, but I couldn’t feel at ease.

Aura is Sherry-san’s family home. If I stay there, it might cause her trouble. I want to avoid causing any inconvenience to my benefactor.

Returning to the inn, we explained the situation and decided to leave the Aura Inn. The owner, Modal-san, Connie, the head maid Claire-san, and the cook Miles-san were all surprised and saddened.

“Even though you helped me, please allow me to leave like this suddenly. Considering the possibility of being seen by important people in the castle, I think it’s better for us not to be here.”

Saying that, Connie hugged me and cried.

“Poor thing. I’m sorry I couldn’t help you. I’m really sorry.”

“Connie, don’t apologize. Thank you for being kind to me. I’ll write you a letter once things settle down.”

“Haru, come back here when the heat dies down.”

“Claire-san…”

“Listen, don’t drink untreated water.”

“I understand. Miles-san, thank you for the delicious meals.”

“Haru.”

“Modal-san, I will never forget your kindness.”

We greeted everyone and left the Inn. Victor had already left long ago. We had a predetermined meeting place. I packed the unfinished bed cover, the remaining yarn, a few changes of clothes, and the generous amount of salary I received into my backpack and walked.

In a room within the royal castle, the commander of the wizard unit, Brent, and the Prime Minister, Benedict, were facing each other.

“We lost sight of them in the market. It seems that our surveillance birds were noticed.”

“Hmm. I didn’t think Victor had recovered that much.”

Brent was not convinced by this surveillance.

“Is surveillance really necessary? He’s just now a second-rate wizard with burnt-out magic and a woman without any magical power. They pose no threat.”

“Not just Victor. But, that woman is bothering me. Even though it’s His Majesty’s opinion, we should have taken care of the woman.”

Prime Minister Benedict was anxious.

The visionary wizard is still predicting a catastrophic disaster that could shake the country. Yet, after Victor, the next most talented summoner has been unable to successfully summon anyone. They say they can’t find the right person to summon no matter what they do.

“His  Majesty is also in a hurry. We must summon the saint no matter what. What if rumors about the impending disaster are spread by one of those two before we succeed? The commoners will start clamoring about what the wizards are doing.”

“Prime Minister, Victor is not that kind of person.”

“I don’t know. Until he left here, he kept insisting that the summoning was a success and that Haru was the saint.”

Brent regretted it. The current summoner couldn’t find the summoning target no matter what. He started to think that if he hadn’t accepted the Prime Minister’s instruction to pretend that everything never happened and had left Victor and Haru here, the situation might have been different.

(Although it’s too late for everything, there was no problem with Victor’s summoning magic.)

Brent was confident that Victor’s summoning had been successful. However, it was unexpected that a human without magical power came instead of a saint with strong magical power.

Why was a person without magical power chosen as the summoning target? Even Brent didn’t understand that.

“You have quite a bulky luggage.”

“It’s filled with an unfinished bed cover and a lot of yarn.”

“A bed cover? Why. . .”

“I didn’t have any personal belongings, so I thought I’d try knitting. I didn’t have anything.”

“I see. I’m sorry for everything.”

“I don’t hold any grudges against you. Anyway, where are we going? I don’t know anything about this country, so I’m relying on you.”

The merchant’s carriage, which I prepaid and got on, was heading towards the southern metropolis after leaving the capital city. It was a city that Victor had visited only once before.

“Since the city where I was born and raised would be searched for, I chose a city I’ve only been to once.”

“I see. I’m looking forward to it. I hope it’s a wonderful city.”

Seeing Haru, who didn’t complain even in this situation, Victor’s heart twinged with pain.
