of his actions was news to him. Nozomu felt like he knew a little bit more about Mars.

===========================================================

Going back in time, when Nozomu was eating Hannahs food, Mars and a giant with a stern look were facing each other in the kitchen.

The name of the giant man was Dell. Hannahs husband and the owner of this inn.

Mars had been scolded by Hannah until recently, and when Dell finished cooking and his wife delivered it to Nozomu, Mars was finally released from the chiding.

However, Mars had a big lump on his head because he was hit by Hannah with a frying pan, and there were tears in his eyes, probably because it was hurt.

”Good grief … how long are ya gonna keep acting like this? ”

“…”

The innkeeper was amazed when he heard about what Mars had done to Nozomu. Mars also thought it was too much, so he had no choice but to shut up.

”Is it cuzo him that ya been actin crazy lately? ”

“…”

”From your point of view, maybe, to him…to Nozomu-kun. Did ya lose to that child? ”

”Na!! ”

Mars was surprised to be told the facts. Hed never told anyone about the mock battle with Nozomu.

”How many years do ya think Ive been raisin ya in place of yer parents? Yer annoyed by how many times you lost…. ”

”Thats not it! ”

”Then whyd ya become such a bummer? ”

Mars turned away and muttered,

”… I just wanted to know why he got stronger … ”

With that said, Dell sighed,

”Haa… ”.

Mars had some difficulty with Hannah and Ena. He had pride. He had the awareness that he could protect himself; however, there was a time when Dell talked honestly to some extent. For Mars, Dell was an irreplaceable family member, a ”reliable father ” and, in a sense, aspired to be like him. Even if they werent related by blood…

”Why didnt ya just say that? You just had to ask him bout it from the start. ”

“…Why are you only telling me this now? Besides, I thought he was just a failure. Far from a decent guy ”

As expected, it seemed that Mars couldnt suddenly accept that someone hed been swearing at until recently was strong. Well, it was a normal reaction.

”Why? Did ya confirm yerself that he was really a bad person? ”

”Are you making a fool of me!? ”

”Iya, impressive, when Im always looking at you, I wonder if theres an electric jellyfish in your head… ”

”N,na, How can I know!! ”

Mars face turned bright red. He denied it, but Dell felt a little relieved to see that.

Mars had a good relationship with goon, but he never brought them to this inn.

Maybe because they only thought about themselves.

Even though Mars was a bully, Mars wasnt against it when he saw Ena take Nozomu to the inn. Dell knew that Mars also accepted Nozomu since Mars wouldnt bring thugs here.

By the way, Electric Jellyfish are one of the demonic beasts that live in the sea. They float while riding in the ocean current, and the electric current generated by the long tentacles numb the prey, letting them be easy picking.

Although it was as large as an adult man, it had no means of movement. It could only float in the sea, and it wasnt known to be very dangerous in that regard.

Dell was happy that Mars had friends, hence, he told him to do what he had to do.

“… At least apologize for what you did. ”

”I, I know… ”

Dells focus and questioning naturally loosened up on Mars, who was listening to what he had to say while averting his gaze awkwardly.

==============================================================

Nozomu, who had been fully cared for, thought it would be bad to disturb them any longer, so he decided its about time to leave.

”Excuse me for disturbing you. The food was delicious. ”

”Its okay. Please come again. It was quite a lot of food to eat right? This one was worth making too. ”

”Nozomu-san, my brother may cause you trouble again, but please take care of him. ”

Dell answered with a smile that didnt look good on his stern face, and Ena also bowed and thanked Nozomu.

”Look, Mars. You have to send Nozomu off properly because you caused him trouble. ”

”I know… ”

Mars lazily responded to Hannah, who urged him. Nozomu thanked Hannah and others then went back to the dormitory with Mars.

On their way back to the dormitory, the two remained silent. Until now, Mars had only cursed Nozomu, and Nozomu never had a decent conversation with Mars, so it was reasonable.

After a while of silence, Mars spoke first.

”Ah…Im sorry…for many things up to this point ”

Mars apologized to Nozomu awkwardly.

”Its alright. I dont mind anymore. ”

(As expected, I cant hurt someone who has been so tattered)

Nozomu remembered Ena, who fiercely attacked Mars with her words, and Mars, whose heart was shattered by her. As expected, Nozomu couldnt pursue further after remembering such verbal abuse.

“…Oi, Did you think something strange just now?”

Mars asked Nozomu because he sensed a disturbing atmosphere from him.

”No, as a human being, why dont you blame the person who got destroyed by his little sister… ”

”Bastard! Youre still thinking about that, huh!! Howd you remember it so well!! ”

”No, I cant just forget something that has such an impact … ”

”Forget it! Forget it now!! Forget it immediately!!! ”

”Wait, hey! What are you doing !!! ”

Nozomu left in a hurry and Mars rushed towards Nozomu, but he felt that the distance between them was shrinking.

(Somehow it feels nostalgic. There are only a few people besides Shisho who talk like this)

The two were going along while screaming.

No matter how others looked, they could only see them as bad friends, but he felt that the distance between Mars and himself was shrinking.
