"By the way, I think I haven't heard your name yet, though."

Rosetta-san says so while drinking her red wine.

Indeed, even though Rosetta-san has named herself, we haven't told her our names yet.

This noon, I did feel like the situation didn't give a chance for us to do so, but... as far as I'm concerned, that sure was quite impolite.

"Sorry for our rudeness, my name is Tetsuya Yamada."

"My name is Aria Astori!"

"Mimily Mimingus."

When we finished introducing ourselves, Rosetta-san is humming while nodding her head.

"Tetsuya, Aria, and Mimily, right? Okay, I've remembered it. By the way, you guys... sorry to say it, but, what a strange group you are. An eastern man, a girl, and a beast-woman. Especially, Mimily. Even though you're still that young, why do you become an adventurer?"

Rosetta-san is looking at Mimily with very interested eyes.

And then, Mimily puffs out her cheeks in displeasure.

"I'm, already fifteen."

"Wha...! Ah, um, sorry for my rudeness. I see, fifteen years old, huh...."

Rosetta-san fl.u.s.teredly apologizes to Mimily. And then staring closely at her... and after blinking three times—


She asks so while inclining her head.

Ah, Rosetta-san.

I understand your feeling, but that question is a bit cruel.

Mimily is br.i.m.m.i.n.g with anger.

"Right now, I come to disliking Rosetta."

"S, sorry! My apologies!"

"Only this time, I'll forgive you."

When the honorable knight throws away her pride and bows her head to Mimily, her anger is subsided.

Even without apologizing that far, I think Mimily would still forgive her, though.

As I thought, Rosetta-san sure is a good person. Or rather, soft hearted.

I feel like, soon, she might volunteering herself to protect people, just to get caught and a.s.saulted by orcs.

"By the way, Rosetta-san, that red wine, may I take some of it? It's been a while, so I feel like I want to drink some boozes."

"Hmm? I don't mind. It isn't particularly an expensive wine, after all."

Rosetta-san says so while whirling the wine in her gla.s.s.

The smell of grape is floating around.

"What a nice smell, I want to try it too!"

"Aria, you're still fourteen, right? It's still too early for you to drink boozes."

I warn Aria.

"That's not the case at all. Fourteen is already a splendid adult. And, by drinking boozes, I'll perfectly become an adult!"

I don't think you're an adult just because you drink boozes, though.

"How about just let her be? Fourteen years old, I don't know whether it's already considered as adult or not, but at least she's not a child anymore. Isn't it fine to let her try it for just a bit?"
