That’s Right, Let’s Have a Slow Life

I-It’s a mistake, right?”

Although I was horrified by the throbbing black heart floating above Alvin-sama’s name, I quickly realized that there must be some kind of bug going on.

I honestly thought it was some kind of curse or horror story.

However, my current existence itself was like a bug.
In the “Adolescence of Swords and Magic” series, there was no such thing as a village girl whose stats had maxed out.

Aside from Alvin-sama, was it also a mistake that everyone’s favorability was at MAX? If it was true, I would be happy if we had become good friends in their memories.

“Now, what shall we do now?”

I stretched out my arms and thought about the future.

For now, the only way to return to my original world was to die.
Dying was scary and painful, and I didn’t even know if it was really possible to go back.
Also, there was no reason for me to go that far to return to my original world.

At any rate, I had no choice but to live here alone for a while.

Fortunately, I now had the same abilities as last time, in addition to apparently having nothing to do with the game’s storyline.

And then I realized.

“Huh, aren’t I a money tree[1] now…?”

Of course, I didn’t have any money on hand, but I was always picking medicinal herbs and making potions on my travels.
And with the power of the saintess, I was able to make some pretty good quality potions.

If I could make them for free and sell them for a considerable price, I could make a small fortune.

If I earned a certain amount of money, bought some magic stones, enchant them with magic, and made magic tools, they could probably sell for quite a high price.
It would be much easier than making potions.

“Recovery Heal.”

I casually put my hand over the withered flower in my hand and muttered.
The flower instantly became brightly colored and healthy, as if it had just bloomed.

Relieved that I had successfully used magic, I was convinced that I would never have to worry about money in this world.
With that in mind, I started to feel like everything was going well.

I was so busy last time, so it might be nice to live a slow life while earning a moderate amount of money this time.
I would rather do that at all costs.

“… All right.”

I brushed the dirt and grass off my clothes with my hands and stood up.

First of all, let’s asked the old lady from earlier if I could stay with her for a week or so.
I would just keep on picking herbs and borrowing pots to produce large quantities of potions and sold them in the nearby town.
After that, I should be able to rent a place to live with the money I earned.

Originally, I used to go on long journeys with my friends to subjugate the Demon King, so I was used to sleeping outdoors.
If I was refused, I could manage in that area.
I had the strength to protect myself as well.

“It’s kind of exciting.”

It might be nice to really live a carefree life as a village girl in the countryside surrounded by nature.
In my original world, I didn’t even have a family that would worry about me.

There was nothing there to tie me down.
Expectations swelled in my chest as I realized that I was completely free.

And so began my second life in another world—or rather, my leisurely slow life.


Three weeks passed in the blink of an eye.
I had been desperately producing a lot of potions and earning money since then, and even rented a house of my own.
It was pretty good.

I was very grateful to the elderly lady, who kindly let me stay at her house in the beginning and took care of me.
Even now, she was a good friend of mine, and we ate meals together.

The people of Meisa Village were very warm and treated me well, even though I was an outsider who suddenly appeared.
Thanks to that, I was steadily building the foundation for a happy slow life.

“Nina, I’m here to pick up the potions for this week.”

“Thank you! I’ll get it right away.”

In my own personal castle, a small wooden house, Bruno came again today.
He was a merchant who worked mainly in the second city, Cerevista.

When I entrusted him with the large quantities of potions that I had made in advance, Bruno raised his dark blue eyebrows, which were the same color as his hair.

Really, who the hell are you?”

“Actually, I want to know too.”

“Hahaha, what are you talking about? Anyway, I can get double the commission, so it’s fine.”

I paid Bruno a larger amount of money for various hush money.
In order to prevent my identity from being found out, the potions were arranged in the store through a few more people from Bruno.

Although the profit would be reduced, I had plenty of magic power and medicinal herbs available.
In order to maintain a peaceful life, I was always careful to take precautions.

“Here’s the money for today.
Don’t get robbed.”

I’ll see you next week.”

“Right! See you soon.
Be careful when you enter the forest.”

“Thanks again.
Take care, Bruno.”

Seeing off the gentle Bruno, who was becoming like an older brother to me, I was fired up to increase his profits, and I got ready to pick some herbs for the potions.

I quickly checked my appearance in the mirror in front of the door and reflected on it was a woman with peach-colored hair, golden eyes, and slightly slanted eyes.

My original form had brown hair and eyes, and droopy eyes.
I was still unfamiliar with transformation magic, but no one would definitely recognize me as Nina.

I had told only the elderly lady, who knew my original appearance when I first met her, that I was in hiding due to circumstances.

When I lightly put my hair together and went outside, I noticed that the whole village was noisy, so I called out to Aunt Betty, who was in front of the house next door.

“Um, did something happen?”

“I heard that the Saintess will be here two days early.”


It seemed that the new saintess was going around the country to offer prayers.
I didn’t have such an event at the time, but many things could change.

Anyway, I thought there was a good chance that one of the capture targets would be with her, so I planned to leave the village for a few days starting tomorrow to avoid running into them.

“Look, Nina-chan.
That person is Saintess Erica.”


Aunt Betty pointed toward a beautiful silver-haired girl, surrounded by knights and wearing a pure white robe just like the one I used to wear.

Her large eyes, framed by long eyelashes, were a beautiful ice blue color, and no matter how I looked at her, she didn’t look like a Japanese transitioner like me.

While wondering, I turned my gaze to the man walking right next to her and let out an unintentional “Ah!” sound.

That was because the one next to the new saintess was her old friend, the elf Theo.
