Words of Farewell
Having left the church, I hurriedly made my way to the exit to not make those two wait any longer.
Passing through the lively main street, when the city’s exit came into my view——I saw Ralf and the other happily talking to each other.
Bors-san and his party was there of course, and also Trisha, the old golem guy, and even Vincent and Fecilia of the [Moonlight Fangs].
I thought only Bors-san would have showed up but, looks like a lot more people were here to say goodbye.
“Sorry for the wait. We ended up chatting a bit more than expected.”
“Chris, you’re late! Well, I’m glad we got to chat with everyone here though!”
While hearing Ralf’s honest opinion, I began to greet everyone one by one and say my goodbyes.
All of the people here had been a huge help to me in one way or another.
“I thought we had already given our goodbyes but you still came to see us off Trisha.”
“Rupert invited me after all. Chris, you were my regular after all, I’ll happily come to see you guys off.”
“I see. Thank you, I’m happy you came all the way. Your potions helped me more than you could even imagine.”
“And I made a lot of money in return so don’t worry about it. That aside, here, take this.”
Saying that, Trisha handed me a bright yellow potion that I seen once before.
……….if I recall, this is the one that Trisha had given to Rupert when she was sick and is supposedly a strong nourishment potion.
I think Shantell also gave me a similar one so I remember.
“You sure? Wasn’t this really valuable?”
“like I said, you are a dear customer so consider this service. In return, when you come back to Edestor, just be sure to continue coming to my store.”
“Then, I’ll gladly accept. And yes, I’ll be sure to come to you again.”
Taking the potion from her, I gave a deep bow to thank her.
Next was the old golem guy. I never thought he’d leave his work room, that too to say his farewells.
“You came as well old man. Never thought you were the type.”
“I may not look it but I do care for my disciples you know……….ah, of course, I don’t mean you but I’m here for Esta’s sake.”
“Yeah, I figured that’d be the case. But, you did also help me a lot. Especially with teaching me [Anti Magic]…….Also, you helped me with learning more about the vendettatein as well.”
“Don’t mention it. Outside teaching you magic, everything I did was mostly to satiate my own curiosity first and foremost. I would have happily done so for any person, you’re not special.”
I don’t think he’s lying either.
But, regardless of his reasons, the fact remains that he had helped me a lot.
“That may be the case but, I am still grateful for it all. If not for you old man, there’d be so much I would have never learnt or understood.”
“Well, if you’re feeling thankful, I’ll take it. Not a bad feeling to be thanked once in a while. But if you really want to thank me, be sure to come to me if you ever find any new information on golems or the like.”
“Sure. If I find something new, or make a new discovery, I’ll tell you everything without any cost.”
“HO HO HO! Now that’s what I like to hear.”
We both laughed at our conversation, and then next I moved to greet the members of the [Moonlight Fang].
Fecilia was one thing, I was reluctant to greet Vincent but I couldn’t exactly ignore him either.
“You two came as well huh. Thanks.”
“I’m mostly here for my beloved disciple Ralf to be honest. And I’m done talking with him so if you don’t mind I’ll be going back now?”
“………….Sure, go ahead. Bye.”
I suppressed my urge to retort harshly and calmly saw Vincent off who had supposedly come to say his goodbyes.
Ralf was happily waving his arms to say goodbye but I couldn’t bring myself to do so.
……….Well, I should be happy that I didn’t need to chat with him I guess.
“Chris, I apologize for Vincent’s rudeness. He had finished his talk with Ralf beforehand and did actually wait here so I don’t think he had any ill intentions, so please forgive him.”
“no, I didn’t think it was anything that serious anyway……….besides, I don’t care so don’t worry. Him aside, I’m glad you came to say goodbye as well. Thanks.”
“Well, dare I say I don’t have shallow relationship with you guys anymore after all. Thanks to meeting you Chris, I was given a great chance to revaluate myself, so coming to say farewell is the least I could do.”
“Same here, it was quite the experience we had together. Especially considering I had basically forced you to come with us, yet you had been great help in the great forest of Roza. “
Me and Fecilia had a strong handshake, and complimented each other.
Recalling how we had met, I never thought we’d end up having such a cordial relationship.
“I said this before as well but, when you come back to Edestor, let us go on an adventure again. If it’s the Dungeon, I’ll gladly escort you guys through it.”
“I look forward to it. I do want to go dungeon diving one day for sure so when that time comes, I’ll be sure to call for you.”
“Of course. I’ll happily join you guys.”
Making a promise with Fecilia, I finally moved to the last group of people.
From the beginning till the end, they had been so kind to us. It was of course, Bors-san and his party.
“Chris-kun, once again thank you for last time! That wyvern steak was amazing!”
“Yeah, I hadn’t been able to have such a good meal in a long time.”
“I should be the one thanking you two. You helped me a lot, and even showed me that secret store of the merchant’s guild.”
“Ah, don’t talk about it to other people though. We’ll get banned from there too otherwise.”
“Don’t worry. I haven’t told anyone else about it.”
“Then, all good! When you’re back, let’s go shopping again! Next time we’ll be the one to treat you to the wyvern steak!”
“I’ll look forward to that….I’ll tell you right now, I’m not one to be reserved.”
While chatting with Rupert and Rufus, I looked towards Bors-san who seemed quiet and didn’t take part in the conversation.
His back was turned towards me and judging by the slight shake of his shoulders……….it seems he was crying.

“…………Bors-san. I’d like to talk before leaving so please look this way.”
“——-Shush it! I zeem to habe caught a cold so my face izn’t worth showing right now! If you have any business with me, just tell me like this!”
“In that case, allow me to say all I want to say. We have been constantly helped by ever since we came to Edestor. You called out to us even though we were starngers………..honestly, I was suspicious of you at first but, now I know you simply that kind. You even kept your cool with me even though I was so rude with you……….well, your bragging was still annoying though.”
“………nuguhgu. Kuh, Gris, you always dalk just a bid too much!”
“I will never forget this debt I owe you for all your help. Bors-san, be safe and sound until I come back okay.”
“………….gu,GRISS! You be safe as well! Don’t you dare die or something like that okay!!”
Unable to hold it back anymore, Bors-san turned towards me with tears gushing out, and tightly hugged me.
I have never been hugged like this in my life. Not even by my parents. So I almost teared up as well but………I hated tearful partings so I held back on my tears.
He was just a smelly old man but I knew that I’d probably never forget this moment.
“Alright then, we’re off. Everyone, please stay healthy.”
While being seen off by many people, we left Edestor.
I’d be lying if I said I felt no regret leaving this place but, now that we had departed, I cannot turn back to look.
To settle things with Klaus once and for all, we made our way to the Capital.
