Chapter 3: You’ll accept? (with implications)

Arnest is very tsundere, all these double negatives.
Name change: Asher -> Asha (because Asher sounds like a male’s name)
For those who think that the story is poorly written, take note that it’s pretty much at the 「First draft」stage and I’m sure Author-san will go back and edit all the chapters later.

You’ll accept?

I had been severely scolded by the innkeeper, but now I was full of anticipation.
Why? That’s obvious. It’s because I can meet ‘Saint-sama’. It seems her medical treatment is available to the public so it’s easy to see her.
What’s important is the extent of recovery magic that ‘Saint-sama’ can use.
And what’s even more important is how beautiful ‘Saint-sama’ is. How beautiful the Saint is!!

The town was full of energy. There were many people opening stands on the street. It’s like a mini-festival already.

“Hey, did you hear? Apparently Saint-sama is coming to town!”
“Oh, you’re quick! When will the medical treatment start?”
“It seems Saint-sama will start right after having a short rest.”

I kept my ears open and gathered information. Heh, it’s not like I don’t have any friends because I only recently came to this town!

I head there early to take a position as far forward as possible so I would be able to see. Luckily there were only a few people so I could take up a position easily.
It appears there’s still some time before it starts. I made a mistake, I could have bought something suitable to eat. I haven’t even eaten breakfast so I’m hungry…..

“Er.. Nest-kun? G-good morning.”
“Ah!? Wh-who are hyu?”

I couldn’t not bite my tongue! Because in front of my eyes was a woman with an hourglass figure!?

“It’s me, Asha.”

I-I never thought it’d be Asha-san…..

“Ah, good morning. I didn’t recognise you without your uniform.”

Because I’ve never seen Asha-san in plain clothes before….. Or rather, she really is a beauty!

“Er.. so what are you doing here, Asha-san? Did you come to see Saint-sama too?”
“Y-yeah. There’s that too but I thought I might run into you so……”
“Eh, what was that?”

Her voice lowered half way through the sentence so I couldn’t hear it.

“Come to think of it, have you eaten? It’s fine if you haven’t but to be honest, I made a lunchbox… How about it?”

B-by ‘how about it’, is she talking about eating together?
I thank Asha-san and feast on the lunchbox.

“D-delicous!!”

What the heck, it’s super tasty!! So Asha-san was good at cooking….. And she’s a beauty! A major beauty!! If she was my wife……

“G-gulp.”

Nevertheless, I can only dream. No matter how hard I try, I won’t be a good match for Asha-san. It’s too bad I wasn’t born handsome but I can continue living with just this lunchbox!

“This really is delicious, it’s already at a level you can’t buy. I envy the one who will become your husband!”

If I was handsome, I would probably be able to eat this cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner but it’s too bad……

“Eh!?”

Asha-san’s face suddenly turns red. She’s become flustered for some reason.

“Th-then Nest-kun will accept (me)?”
“Eh, of course I’ll accept (the lunchbox)!”
“Eeeehhhh!?”

What’s the matter, Asha-san? I wonder if I did something bad.

“So.. I can’t have the lunchbox?”
“Eh, lunchbox?

Asha-san questions, suddenly freezing. She has already become ghastly.

“Y-you weren’t talking about the lunchbox…..? To accept or not…..”

When I said that, Asha-san turned bright red with an inaudible *poof* and ran away. Wh-what should I do with this lunchbox….. Would it be alright to eat it….?

People have gradually assembled by the time I finished the lunchbox. Obviously, there were a great number of injured people.
From what I hear around me, it seems it’ll start soon.

People in the vicinity cheer loudly. It looks like the Saint-sama I’ve been eagerly waiting for has appeared. Come, beauty!!
Saint-sama appeared before us. She’s covered by a thick hood.
A commotion gradually spread through the area, like the others also thought it was strange.

“Good morning everyone.”

A single statement, spoken in a clear voice. It wasn’t said very loudly but it resounded in the vicinity. Even the commotion settled down because of it.

“Now then, I will start the medical treatment.”

As expected of the Saint, she heals injuries in a twinkle. However, they were all just grazes and such, so the amazing magic I was looking forward to was not seen.
I could only strengthen my resolve and then approached the Saint as a patient. As one would expect, I covered myself with a hood so I wouldn’t stand out in the future.

“Hello, what would you like me to heal?”

Hearing it from up close, she has an even prettier voice. And then I took a fleeting peek into Saint-sama’s hood to see her face. I could tell she was a beauty even with the small glimpse.

“Um.. I want to have you heal my arm but….”
“? Your arm doesn’t look like it’s injured though….”
“Ah, I’ll do it now, so please.”

And then I cut off an arm.

“!? What are you doing!? I’ll heal you now so please stand still.”

S-Saint-sama got mad at me….. Certainly, I might have overdone it. A large quantity of blood flowed out from the base of my arm even now.

“High Heal!!”

Oh, so this is Saint-sama’s magic.. Ah…..?

“Um.. Are you…finished?”

The blood has stopped. But that’s all, the arm hasn’t healed.

“You! Why did you do such a stupid thing!! To cut off an arm!! Honestly, you won’t be able to use it again, you know!?”
“Huh? Wasn’t Saint-sama able to heal an arm…..?”

The people in the vicinity watched with bated breath.

“Are you an idiot!? There’s no way I can recover it!? I don’t mean to boast but I know more than anyone else in terms of recovery magic. Even so, I’ve never heard of a spell that can regrown a severed arm.”

I stood there in shock. Eh, then what about my Heal? Who am I going to learn recovery magic from…..?

“That kind of… I’m sorry.”

I made a brief statement to the surrounding people, picked up my arm and returned to the inn in a daze.

In that case, what the hell is my recovery magic….? I can easily do something that even Saint-sama can’t manage.

“Sigh…. This can’t be anything but monstrous then…..”

I mutter to myself mockingly while healing my arm. I finally understood how strange it was for me to regrow my arm by simply casting Heal.
From here on, I shouldn’t use such excessive recovery magic as much as possible.
I etched that into my mind.

    1. Years of practice, I suppose. He did more or less cut off his arm repeatedly for days, so I suppose it’s a breeze by now.

      Not the best of theories, but hey, this is a pretty light story.

      1. ah, but the problem is how difficult it actually is to cut an arm off in one swing with a knife, or even a sword. Add the awkwardness of having to angle it at yourself, and suddenly you have to be a swordmaster or something…

      2. Let’s first imagine the pain… Well, I’ve heard something about if it was too clean a cut, it wouldn’t hurt that much, at least not at first. I know that when it’s too clean of a cut and goes too quickly, you won’t really notice it that much from personal experience(at least normal cuts that don’t go all the way through and just cuts into flesh), those knives you use for floors and stuff when working is sharp as hell and if you slip and get a cut, it won’t actually hurt that much but damn it will spray blood. Still, it’s really nothing you would want to do, and just how strong and skilled does he have to be to cut off his own arms/legs without causing any real pain? Damn man.

  2. I feel sorry for that poor saint. If she’s anything more than a one-off character, then she’s bound to experience many more headaches as a result of the MC…

    Incidentally, it feels like the MC might be literally a little soft-headed. Like a developmental delay sort of thing. Or maybe I’m just reading too much into his ignorance?

    My thanks to you, Kookiedreamer.

  3. i hope in the preceeding chapters, he wont act like he does not know how op his healing power is. i hate characters who continually act dense about common sense(like the magis grandson mc). anyway, thanks for the chapter.

  4. For some reason, I keep hoping that the MC will sell his cut off body parts in the future, or otherwise use them for something. It’s kind of a waste to just leave them lying around. He could even use it as a surprise attack, like, he cuts off his own arm and throws it to distract people.

  8. “Um.. I want to have you heal my arm but….”
    “? Your arm doesn’t look like it’s injured though….”
    “Ah, I’ll do it now, so please.”
    And then I cut off an arm.

    Perfect way to flirt with a saint. Go for healing then cut off your own arm “I want a heal filled with love. What do you mean you can’t fully heal it? Man, you’re such a poser”.

    I mean, what the fck did he think people would think if he’d go out and just cut off his arm when someone is doing some charity healing? Haah… This guy has no common sense whatsoever. I’m still shuddering at the thought of that day he tried out healing himself all day. Just how big was the mountain of cut off limbs since he can heal them in a few seconds? Horror story all the way.

    Laughed though, damn fool of a mc 😀
