When I woke up, I saw Aoi hugging me as she sleeps. Her soft breathing as she sleeps is really cute.

I stroked her head lightly before I got up from the bed carefully as to not disturb her in her sleep. She will wake up when the food is ready.

I went downstairs, and I saw the two siblings busy serving food to the other customers. When they saw me coming down the stairs, they greeted me with their dazzling smile.

"Good morning, Ren!"

"Good morning, Brother Ren!"

I also greeted them, though I would like them not to greet me in front of other people.

"Ehhh, is Aoi still sleeping?" Saku asked me.

"Nn. She will wake up soon, so please don't worry." I replied.

"Would you like to have a meal now, Brother Ren?" Saki also asked me.

"Uhhh, we'll eat breakfast together. I'll walk outside for a while." I said.

"Is that so? Take care." Saku said while smiling.

"Come back when food's ready!" Saki also said while waving her hand.

I went outside the inn. Now, where to go? Yesterday, we walked around the market. I guess I'll take a look at the streets in the neighborhood.

"It's better to know the important places in this town." I said to myself as I started to walk towards the town proper.

After a few minutes of walking, I reached the middle of the town. This town is a small one, if I say so myself.

When I looked around, I noticed that the houses looks like the ones you find in history books. They give a Medieval Europe feel, just like the ones in Arandel.

I also noticed the stares of the people as I look. I'm only new here in this town, that's why I understand that they think of me as a suspicious person.

After walking and enjoying the view for a while, I heard a faint scream from somewhere. I looked around, and I found a narrow street where I think the scream is coming from.

I immediately rushed to see what is going on. When I reached the dark and narrow street, I saw a brown-haired young man wearing clothes like he's a son of a merchant being cornered by two middle aged men that looked like thugs. The two of them both held weapons while grinning at the young man.

"Hey, just give us all your money, eh?" The first thug had said.

"If you don't, we'll get it by force. Understood, eh?" The second one added.

"I-I don't have any money! Please, let go of me!" The young man said while tears form from his green eyes.

"I hate liars, eh? You see this, if you don't give it to us then we'll get your life instead, eh?" The second thug said while showing his knife.

The first thug restricted the young man's neck with his arms so that he won't escape. The second thug pointed the knife on his neck.

Do something, Ren. Before it's too late.

"What are you doing?" I asked the two thugs.

They looked at me angrily. The young man however, looked at me in surprise.

"Stay away, little boy, or you want to get killed also, eh?" Said the first thug while laughing.

"Just shut up, old man, and come at me with everything you got." I said as I taunted them.

...No good. Why did you say that, stupid Ren?!

"This bastard...die!" The second thug grabbed his knife as he charged towards me.

While he is charging at me, I prepared my body to fight. When he closed his distance with me, I immediately took a step sidewards to evade his weapon, and kicked his abdomen with a spin.

"Ghaaaaaaaaa!!!" The second thug shouted in pain.

Using that opening, I did a roundhouse kick on his ugly face. He fainted as soon as he received the blow and collapsed on the ground.

I looked at the first thug, who is holding the young man by the neck. He is trembling when he saw that his partner fainted. The hand that holds his blade also trembled while still pointing it to the young man's neck.

"S-Stay away! You want to see this man here get killed, eh?" He threatened me while his body is shaking.

When he heard that, the young man pleaded to me with tears on his green eyes.

"Save me...please!!!"

I tried to walk closer, but the thug warned me again.

"Don't move! One more step and I will stab him, eh?"

Damn. I can't do anything.

...No. Maybe, I can use [that].

I looked at the thug while sporting a serious expression.

"D-Don't do anything! I'll really kill this one here if you move!" He threatened me again.

I closed my eyes for a while. Inhale, exhale. Inhale, exhale.

I opened my eyes again after taking a few deep breaths.

"[Seizure]" I said while looking at the thug's eyes.

I can choose the way he dies with the power of [The Death] Arcana, but I made sure beforehand that he won't die from this. I learned that technique from Aoi.

"Eh?" He only let out a stupid response.

At that instant, his hands trembled and he dropped his knife. The young man hurriedly removed the hand that restrained him and ran away towards my direction. When he looked back, he saw that the thug is convulsing violently on the ground while saliva foamed on his mouth.

"HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHHHHH!!!"

The young man shrieked when he saw the thug convulsing on the floor with whitened eyes.

"Let's get out of here!" I said to the young man. We hurried to get out of the narrow street and asked him after gaining a few distance from the thugs.

"A-Are you all right?" I asked him while panting.

"Haa, haa...I'm okay, I'm okay." He replied while also panting and placing his hands on his knees.

I'm relieved he's safe.

"Why are you being cornered by them?" I asked again after a while.

"Ehhhh, anooo...I was just taking a stroll when the two of them suddenly approached me and dragged me into that dark corner..." He said frantically.

I looked at him. His clothes really looks expensive, except for the large cap on his head. I'm not sure because of his cap, but his facial features are more like that of a girl, and if he dresses like one, he would look like a princess. Is this what they called 'ikemen'?

Also, why would you take a stroll in this kind of place with that kind of clothes?! I want to ask him that question.

"Anooo...thanks for saving me." He said as he bowed his head. His cheeks somewhat blushed.

"Ah...N-No it's okay...I just happened to hear a screa--"

I stopped talking when I saw his cap fell to the ground when he bowed his head.

"You...you are a girl?" I asked her.

My eyes widened in surprise. When her cap fell on the ground, her long brown hair fluttered on the wind, and I fully saw her beautiful face.

...Did I just re-enacted a clichéd scene from a light novel that I borrowed from Rin?

"E-Eh, I-I-I'll go ahead!!!" She said as she turned red due to embarrassment.

When she realized that her long hair is exposed, she hurriedly picked up her cap, and ran away.

"W-Wait!"

I tried to stop her, but I saw a shining object on the ground.

"She left something...Is this, a family seal?"

At first, I thought it was an ordinary gold coin, but I noticed that the design on one face is different. She must be really from a rich family.

I'll keep it for a while until we meet again.

When I returned, I saw Aoi waiting in front of the door, while her arms rested on her hips and it seems like she is angry at me.

"...Big brother! Where did you go, huh? I've waited, you know?!" She said angrily at me.

Even though I apologized to her many, many times, she didn't talked to me for half a day.
