Episode 19 – The Oath of Promise

Before the dawn came, I managed to return to Heart Family residence.
Having fought against the Crown Kobold and the delight from the Glutton Skill that happened afterwards, I was tired.
I leaned the black sword Greed against the desk in the room and fell into bed. My consciousness faded out in no time.

.... I woke-up because of the strong light that got through the windows.
Nn? Based from the height of the sun, it's already noon.

Don't tell me, I had fallen asleep for too long? I went to straighten my personal appearance in hurry and then went out of the room.

When I passed by a maid, she intentionally sneered at me and said.

[Oversleep-san, finally you woke-up. If you don't change your attitude, you will get fired by Roxy-sama, you know]
[Eee, that's.... Where is Roxy-sama? I want to apologize for my blunder...]

When she saw me get flustered, the maid seemed happy. What the hell, you should not be laughing when I might get fired from my job! When I thought like that,

[I'm sorry for laughing. It's because you showing face like a puppy that seemed like it was gonna be thrown away. It's so amusing, fufufu. Sorry about that. But, my words earlier were a lie]
[What do you mean?]
[Roxy-sama had ordered everyone to let you sleep]

While I was still surprised, the young maid continued.
Apparently, Roxy got worried about me who did not get up even in the morning, so she went to check by herself. After she knocked the door on the room, but received no reply, she opened the door and entered the room, and she saw me with my big mouth open and sleeping.

Having looked at me like that, Roxy seemed to think that I gotten tired from yesterday's grape harvest, so she told the maids to let me sleep as much as I could.

[Is that so?]
[Since you have received Roxy-sama permission, you can go back to sleep]
[No, no, I'm alright. I have slept enough]

There is no way I can go to sleep again. For the time being, let's go to apologize to Roxy.

[And then, where is Roxy-sama now?]
[Yesterday, you have already being told right? She is leading the men to hunt the kobolds]

Did she already depart? Toward the valley that had been destroyed.
Roxy who saw it would be surprised. And, I am concerned about what conclusion she would be drawing. Well, there should be no evidence that I was the one who did it, so let's keep calm now.

[When she will be returning?]
[Let's see. Based from the last year experience, it probably tomorrow morning. Kobolds are nocturnal after all. That's why they will lay the traps during daytime, and then keep hunting until the next morning]
[Tomorrow, huh...]

Since it's like that, I'm convinced that she will return by the end of today.
If anyone saw the disastrous scene of the valley, they would likely understand someone had fought against the kobolds over there.

Besides, if the Kobold still remained behind the valley, I cannot imagine that they would be coming to fight in the Heart Family territory. There was Roxy who had pursued the Kobolds every year, so they should understand that from the experience.

Well, it will likely become uproar once she returns back. I must be careful and cautious before that..
When I was still thinking,

[You, really like Roxy-sama, aren't you?]
