Journey of an Exiled Middle-Aged Adventurer Becoming a Hero [Chapter 18]

There is no way I can give up

“Could you repeat that…?”

“You have one week left to live.”

“You’re joking, right?”

“No, it’s not a joke.”

“Is Kyle going to die?”

It seems so.”

“…”

“…?”

Why are you smiling subtly?! A man of your age shouldn’t be smiling while saying something like that, you damn doctor!”

I stood up, drew my sword immediately, and angrily pointed it at the elderly man in front of me.

“W-Wait, calm down!”

“Put away your sword, put it away!”

“Don’t mock me! If you’re going to deliver news as serious as that, at least do it with delicacy! Why are you being so condescending?”

Despite being restrained from behind, I continued to wave the sword.

A nurse hurried in, sighing when she saw me.

“Are you causing a stir because they told you that you have little time left…? Honestly, patients these days have a terrible level of civility…”

“You too, nurse? Do you really think this is normal?!”

I shouted with the sword pointed at the nurse.

However, the nurse remained calm and, with disbelief, she left the examination room.

What kind of hospital is this? Are there no sensible people here?

“Please, calm down. Didn’t I tell you?”

“Tell me what, you f*ck*ng doctor?”

“I’m not… I’m not something so vile, I’m just a doctor.”

“I don’t care, get to the point.”

“There is still a way to avoid it.”

“What does that mean?”

For now, I sat back down and decided to listen to what the other person had to say.

The doctor cleared his throat and looked at me.

“Firstly, let me explain your condition. You are under a ‘curse’.”

“I’m under a curse?”

“Yes. When I confirmed the curse affecting you, I sensed a demonic frequency. Have you had recent conflicts with demons or the like?”

“I… eradicated them.”

“Eh?”

“Recently, I eradicated some demons…”

“Haha. Indeed, that must be the reason.”

When the curse related to demons was mentioned, I could only vividly recall that.

“So… What should I do?”

“You need to go to the church and ask to be freed from the curse.”

Go to the church and be freed from the curse.

Is that all? It seems quite easy.

There’s really nothing to worry about.

So, it’s time to go to the church…

“You thought it would be easy, didn’t you?”

“Eh? Yes. After all, I just must be freed from the curse, right?”

I believe I mentioned before that in this hospital, there are quite a few people affected by curses that cannot be lifted.”

“…Eh?”

“Your curse is one of those impossible to lift.”

“What?! How is that possible?! Am I destined to die?! Am I going to die?!”

It’s impossible to calm down when I’m told something like this!

What am I supposed to do now?!

“However… it’s just a possibility…”

Saying that, the doctor looks at me.

“If you can reach a globally renowned saint, it might be possible to free you from the curse.”

“A globally renowned saint?”

“Yes. Therefore, if you don’t find that saint within a week, you will unfortunately not survive…”

The doctor adjusts his glasses.

“I tell this to everyone who receives a time-limited notice. However, they all resign themselves and accept reality. What will you do?”

After thinking for a moment, I roll up my sleeve.

“I won’t give up. I will definitely search for that person.”
