Journey of an Exiled Middle-Aged Adventurer Becoming a Hero [Chapter 5]

Slightly subdued punch

“How dare you speak to me like that!? Ugh!”

“…I know. You’re a demon creature, right?”

As I repeatedly struck the demon creature’s shoulder, I sighed.


“Receptionist, you should hide, there’s no reason to give money to this individual.”

“Hey, you! Who do you think you are to say that?!”

Apparently annoyed by my words, the demon creature grabbed my clothes.

Given its condition, its strength was remarkable. It easily lifted me into the air and began to strangle me.

“Take this as an example of not opposing us, I will kill this man.”

As it spoke, the demon creature produced a knife from somewhere.

The knife appeared to be imbued with magic.

It seemed to have the benefits of “Increased lethal damage” and “Single strike enhancement.”

Receiving a blow like that would mean going straight to the beyond.

“Kyle! Are you really okay with this?”

“Are you sure you’re okay?”

Oh dear… it’s not right to worry my companions like this.

They shouldn’t be concerned about an old man like me, but since they are kind-hearted, I guess it comes naturally to them.

“Die! Human scum!”

I took in a deep breath.

I breathed in deeply, feeling time slow down.

“I must deliver a measured blow…”


In an instant, a loud bang reverberates throughout the guild.

My fist strikes directly at the demon creature’s body.

The demon creature cannot withstand the sudden blow and is thrown away in an instant.


The knife the demon creature held silently rolls across the floor.

I retrieve the knife and carefully place it on the counter.

“I apologize, reception miss. I have caused a commotion in the guild.”

“I-It’s okay! Thank you!”

At that moment, cheers are heard from inside the guild.

“Wow! That’s how it’s done, Kyle!”

“He’s the strongest man we trust in!”

“He defeated the demon creature in a single blow!”

“Haha… thank you.”

With a gesture of gratitude, I walked towards where the demon creature lay.

“Well, it seems the demon creature…”


“Ah, it escaped!”

The moment I approached, it activated a teleportation spell and vanished from the spot.

Ah… it would have been better to capture it, but there’s nothing that can be done now. For now, I’ll be glad that nothing serious happened.

I sighed and headed towards Elisa and Yui.

“I’m sorry for causing you worry.”

“You defeated the demon creature in a single blow?! Did you really defeat it in a single blow?!”

“Demon creatures… have an S-class ranking for elimination, you know? And you defeated it in a single blow…!”

“Oh, yes… I’m sorry for surprising you like that.”

I usually avoided showing my strength in public, although this time it was unavoidable.

“We are amazed! Defeating an S-class creature in a single blow, the rumors were true…!”

“Elisa, I told you! Those rumors were true, right?!”

“Yes! They were true! It’s just as the rumors said!”

“This is incredible! Amazing!”


So excited they couldn’t contain themselves, the two suddenly approached me and hugged me.

And there they were, in my chest, still full of enthusiasm.

“This… is a problem. This… isn’t considered harassment, right…?”

In my mind, I was filled with concern about whether this could be considered harassment.
