Chapter 7 [Part 2] – That’s My Job
Ashia, who came through the gate, looked up at the sky. A small snowflake landed on her forehead and her cheeks.
‘I can’t believe it’s going to snow…’
There was a considerable amount of snow piled up on the floor, to the point that sounds resonated.
‘This is why there are no customers.’
Well, it wasn’t a loss since she just got a huge amount of gold in advance.
The moment Aisha, who was thinking about her heavy pockets, took a step forward, a large person propped up in front of her store came into view.
Since he had been sitting there for a while, a considerable amount of snow had piled up on top of his light brown hair and both of his shoulders. Astonished, her face was pale as she called out to him.
The man who was curled up raised his head slowly. Despite his small movements, the snow on his hair fell to the floor.
Only then did Teros raise his folded body. When he stood up from his seat, his long shadow hung over the white snowfield. Ashia, who ran all the way under the shadow, nagged at him.
“Tero, you! I’ve told you several times to get into the store and wait!”
“I said that there was a key under the pot! How many times have I said that?”
“How many times?!”
“………. Three times.”
“Yeah! Three times! Huh? You know it!”
While listening to her loud nagging, he began to grow a timid smile on his face.
“How long have you been waiting here? You will freeze to death!”
Ashia frowned heavily, yanking away the snow on Teros’ shoulders. She wiped all the snow off his shoulders and then tried to remove the snow on his hair, but he was too tall.
Then Teros bent down and lowered his head. Ashia’s fingers swept through Teros’ wet hair. She continued to sigh out of lamentation as she shook off the water that had already melted and the snow that had piled up on his head.
“Oh, my God! What is this!”
She furrowed her eyebrows and shook the snow off Teros.
“Let’s head inside for now. You can’t shake the snow off like this.”
Teros pulled Ashia’s hand and lead her into the store.
Ashia turned again and looked him in his eyes. He reached into the inside pocket of his coat, looking for something.
“I don’t have time for that. I have to go to the palace now.”
“Already? Have a meal first.”
“Now that I’m here, I’ve got something to give you. I have been yearning to give this to you.
“Something you want to give to me?”
Teros took a small potion bottle and held it out to Ashia. Ashia lifted the bottle up and looked into it.
“The spring water from the Fountain of Trust.”
At his answer, Ashia, who was looking at the bottle of spring water, turned her head toward Teros.
“You said you were curious.”
His words suddenly reminded her of what she had said a week ago.
-There’s a Fountain of Trust in the temple.
-Yes, I know.
-What is the spring water from that fountain made up of? I heard that it’s only available in the temple.
-Do you want me to give it to you?
– … If you want to.
-Oh, no. It’s really not! No, huh? Tero! Look! It’s really not like that! I said no! Okay?
As the conversation that took place that day became more vivid, Ashia’s face turned a brighter colour than Teros’, which was blue due to the cold.
“Hey, how did you get this?! It’s not easy to even get near to the Fountain of Trust!”
The eyes of Teros curved smoothly.
“I did so because you told me to get you a bottle of spring water if I changed from an Imperial Knight to a Holy Knight of the Temple.”
Ashia’s eyes grew bigger than ever.
“Don’t tell me… You-”
Ashia could not speak and just opened her mouth. Teros smiled softly and brushed off the snow that had begun to pile up on her shoulders.
“Come on in, you’ll catch a cold.”
Ashia burst into tears and Teros closed his eyes tightly.
“You! How did you become a Holy Knight!”
“What are you so surprised about? I’m just gifted.”
“You’re changing to a Holy Knight for this one thing!”
“That’s not the only reason. Being a Holy Knight is much better.”
Ashia was speechless once again. Teros’ eyebrows drooped down.
“… Do you know that you’ve been yelling at me for a while?”
The shadows of the two, who stood still for a long time, were cast over the white road covered in snow. Ashia looked at Teros and said in a quiet voice.
“Tero, I don’t need this.”
Ashia continued with a deep sigh.
“You said you were really burdened by this, right?”
“…… Let me do this. I know how much you’ve been suffering….”
Her low voice cut his words coldly.
“It’s my job.”
“It’s none of your business.”
Teros expressed his disappointment at Aisha’s words, which drew a firm line.
Ashia has always drawn a line. Her determination has been unwavering since the day of the accident. Whatever the cause, it is undeniable that the accident on that day was caused by Ashia’s mana.
Even though he knows Ashia’s personality, he gets hurt every time she makes up her mind like today.
A fickle snowflake fell again in the space between the two people, where silence had fallen.
“It’s cold. Go back.”
“I’ll give it back.”
The potion bottle containing the spring water was held out in front of Teros. He stood away from Ashia’s hand and took a step back.
“That’s enough, please. The procedure is already complete. In a few days, I’ll be transferred to the Holy Knights of the Temple.”
“I’m really getting better treatment.”
Tero took another step backwards.
“So… Please take it. It’s a waste to throw it into the trash can.”
Among the fluttering snowflakes, Ashia’s heart throbbed at Teros’ bitter smile.
“Till next time then. I’m in trouble. Sister, I really need to go.”
” …… I see. Go on, go ahead.”
Instead of answering, Teros smiled sadly with his eyes down. Turning straight around, he went towards the palace.
Ashia looked at the back of Teros for a long time while she held the small polygonal glass bottle in her hand.
Seven years ago, the town of Tometeros, located in the northern part of the Karhan Empire, was ablaze.
During the night, when everyone was asleep and caught unaware by the sudden blaze of fire.
The fire was not easily extinguished, and the raging fire burned not only people’s homes but also their parents and siblings.
After a long week, the flames finally died down after satisfying its greed.
Teros was one of the children who lost their parents and siblings in the accident that day.
And it was Ashia Bliss who burned down the village.
TL/N: Greetings! Theo has been changed to Teros. There may also be other name changes, so please take note of that. Thank you!
