olve the problem on their own.
Young people were especially motivated.

However, the village chief didn’t change his opinion.
“Don't underestimate a user of『Magical Armament』!”

He shouted in a raspy voice.

“I have seen it before.
I once saw a knight with the nickname of『Blunt Destruction』smash an entire mountain of monsters’ nests with just a slash! There's no way an amateur like us can


compete with a criminal who wields such power! Moreover, even monsters are following that mage.”


“Then why not just attack while he’s in asleep!?”

“That's absurd! We don't even know where he is!”

“Then, we should start looking for him now!”

Angry shouts of dispute resounded in the meeting place and confused by the unprecedented predicament, everyone yelled at each other as if to vent their unwillingness.

“Hey, village chief is a coward! Didn't you say that Kurou-boy took a lot of kids and escaped? If push came to shove¹, we'll be able to escape too!”

“Nonsense! That was only possible because of that boy!”

The village chief yelled at him in a very loud voice.
The man who gave his opinion was silenced by the fierceness of his words.

I’m sure everyone have heard of it.
The rumors about Kurou-kun, the prodigy of Titus Village.”

――The boy was famous in the neighboring village.

He was said to be a calm and intelligent child who had the demeanor unfitting of a child.
He was an orphan without any guardians to take care of his well being… but, no one felt sorry for him as he showed his shine and worked hard from an early age.

“The children who were saved by him said, 'He was like a matuer man, and everyone respected him.
All the girls were full of love for him, and on the contrary, they were so nervous that they couldn't talk.

The village chief continued, his tone filled with enthusiasm.

“They were crying.
Along with their gratitude to Kurou-kun, they were crying because they were disappointed in themselves, as they said ‘We escaped without any concern for others, and yer Kurou-kun rescued the little kids and saved them! While we were playing, he was desperately training his body and had even thought of an escape route for everyone! And yet we are…! ”


The men fell silent at the village chief spoke the valor of a 17 year old kid.

Outside the village――Kurou’s courage, who had gone alone to a place where monsters lurked in dense and even selected an escape route for all the survivors.
The adults were humbled by his devotion, as he took the risk of being attacked on his own to save many lives.

――Compared to that boy named Kurou, we ended up making a fuss at the last minute and are now yelling at each other among our relatives.

‘Oh! How pathetic.’ They thought to themselves.

“Even a boy at such young age did his best to let the children escape…”

While the black mage was targeting other villagers, he was struggling to save the lives of children while escaping from goblins under his command, you know?

Can they say ‘we can do it too’ under such a life-threatening escape? Can they say that they will lead the way instead waiting helplessly? Do they have such courage?


No one opened their mouths.
Everyone is awkwardly silent.

The boy had rescued many lives and escaped safely.
What a great feat it is.

The first thing that came to their mind was that he was both kind and wise, and that he was able to achieve such feat because of his careful preparations.

Tl Notes:

This chapter is too long exceeding 2k words, so it is divided into two parts.
I usually divide the chapters into parts, if the word cound exceeds 1800 words.
Chapter 2 barely got full chapter as it had only 1724 words.
Thank you.
