Journey of an Exiled Middle-Aged Adventurer Becoming a Hero [Chapter 4]

Something nice

“Hero’s Proof… sounds good, doesn’t it?”

While being transported back to the capital in a carriage, I reflected on that.

The name sounds good, but something about it didn’t quite fit with an old man like me.

I felt a little embarrassed, as if I were out of place.

“Hahaha… Kyle joined our party!”

“I still can’t believe it… hahaha. It’s amazing, isn’t it?”


It really is nice that the young ones seek my company.

After a long time, I felt grateful for being reborn. This is where I will put in my effort.

“Hey. What’s your ultimate goal, you two? Do you have something in mind?”

As I asked them, both of them responded in unison.

“To earn the title of Hero!”

“To earn the title of Hero!”

“Oh… that’s ambitious.”

Earning the title of Hero is more challenging than becoming an S-rank party.

To reach rank S, only the guild’s approval is needed.

But to earn the title of Hero, approval from the Kingdom of Lepia, our own country, is required.

“But as an ultimate goal, it’s perfect.”

If they had answered with a modest dream of wanting to be a little better than others, perhaps I would have felt a bit disappointed.

But their response exceeded my expectations, showing a level of ambition higher than I had imagined.

“Well… it’s a bit embarrassing to say it.”

“For us, it seems like a challenge…”

“Not at all. Once we’ve become comrades, I’ll be fully committed to supporting you. I’m willing to accompany you in your training as much as needed. After all, I have lived thirty years without a purpose.”

“Wow! We’re so happy!”

“It’s exciting to be able to train with you, Kyle-san!”

“Hahaha, thank you, it makes me happy.”

So, my ultimate goal is to help them become heroines.

After living thirty years, for the first time, I have set such a grand goal.

“Well, it’s time to report on the mission.”

When we arrived in front of the guild, we jumped off the carriage and thanked the coachman.

Just as I was about to open the door, an unpleasant feeling stopped me.

“What’s wrong?”

“Is something happening?”

“No… it seems like something is going on inside…”

My instinct was telling me.

At this moment, opening this door would only cause trouble.

But I can’t just ignore it.

With a sigh, I pushed the door open.

“Hahaha! Hey, receptionist! Quickly, put the money in this bag!”


“…A demon creature?”

Inside the guild, there was a demon creature.

The demon creature was handing a bag to the receptionist, urging her to put money in.

Lately, there have been talks of demon creatures infiltrating the human world, but I never imagined they would reach the capital.

“Eh, a demon creature?!”

“Th-This is dangerous, isn’t it?!”

“It’s dangerous. We must stop it.”

It is said that demon creatures seek human coins to obtain supplies.

Rumors say they are planning a major attack against humans soon. That’s why we must stop such situations.

I approached the demon creature and touched its shoulder.

“Eh?! Who do you think you are?!”

“I’m sorry. Could you stop with that? Although I’m sure you won’t if I ask you to, right?”
