Ex Strongest, Working to Resolve the situation
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
“No, no. It would be strange to be enthusiastic here.” (Soma)
Soma muttered in dismay at the voice that still arrived clearly.
Of course, he didn’t know all the circumstances of this country, but rather, he thought that there were many things he didn’t know. However, what was clearly wrong was the fact.
The flow of the story was weird to begin with.
“I don’t know whether the empress is necessary or not, but why does everyone want to destroy the world?” (Soma)
“Even if the empress had explained about that in advance, it’s still strange regardless. Even if it’s only the empress… there won’t be anyone who can confirm that they are going to die.” (Aina)
Of course, it wasn’t entirely out of question, but it shouldn’t be that way. Rather, if most of them were like that, it was definitely abnormal.
“Anyhow, it’s actually happening… Did that Lambert do something, or was it something that had been done before…?” (Aina)
“Hmm… perhaps, something has happened, but it should be considered from before.” (Soma)
“What do you mean? Are you noticing something?” (Aina)
“Well, I can’t say with certainty.” (Soma)
Even if she affirmed back, she didn’t ask anymore because she thought that she only needed to speak if it was necessary. In fact, there was no reason to speak at the moment.
It was because there was no difference in what they would do from now on.
“So, what are we going to do now? It seems that the reason why the empress can’t be found is because of that Lambert, so it’s a family turmoil, isn’t it? I feel that it’s better not to do anything…” (Aina)
“No, that’s probably not the case.” (Soma)
“Why is that? Originally, the empress is an enemy, so we don’t have to do anything, right?” (Aina)
Aina turned her suspicious gaze. She might be thinking that Soma was going to help the empress. However, Soma shrugged and replied.
“I’m not going to say that in particular, but…” (Soma)
“There is something… so what is it?” (Aina)
“Well, didn’t he say it earlier? That the Demon King is unnecessary.” (Soma)
“Surely, he said that… could it be…?” (Aina)
“I think it’s easy to think that you’ll miss anything just because you don’t need it right? In the first place, they even said that they would destroy the world with their own hands.” (Soma)
If they chose to fight, they would naturally choose to do it in a more favorable situation. And there was no situation that was more advantageous than fighting here.
“Well, it’s a different story if they can defeat me though…” (Soma)
“There’s no more reason to miss it. Haa… well, I thought that it would be like this at the time with you. So, it’s fine.” (Aina)
It was terribly an honest thought, but Soma couldn’t complain as long as things had actually happened. Thus, he shrugged his shoulders again…
“Well… by the way, is it alright if I leave this place to you for a while?” (Soma)
“Yes? Then… are you…?” (Aina)
“I have a place to go for a while.” (Soma)
Aina naturally turned a suspicious look at Soma. Well, it was only natural to do so if she was in his place.
“I’m sure you have a reason, but I don’t understand why you would entrust this place to me. This is just a guess room, right? We don’t have any personal belongings here.” (Aina)
“You’re right. However, it’s a room assigned to us. Then, this is the only place in this country where I will return.” (Soma)
Did Aina understand what he meant, or was she simply surprised? Aina let out a sigh, and yet, she would take care of the place.
“Understood. I should wait here, yes?” (Aina)
“Hmm, yes please. Well, I don’t think it will take that long, but… this isn’t something I can do just for my own convenience.” (Soma)
Soma didn’t know everything in the first place, and about half of it was still in the stage of speculation. Honestly, he didn’t have enough information. He thought that even if something happened from the state of the empress… well, that was just an excuse after all.
However, that was why he thought half of the reason why this incident happened was because of his fault. Consequently, he decided to make a move.
Still, as long as there wasn’t enough information, there was a possibility that what he was trying to do was wrong. On the other hand, as long as he was convinced that if he did nothing, he would definitely regret it, so he couldn’t help but do it. If he were wrong… that time was that time.
“Well… I hope everything goes well.” (Soma)
Only God knew what would actually happen… No, even God didn’t know.
He wondered to what extent God grasped and understood this situation. While thinking of that, Soma left the room for the time being.

The words were heard. The enthusiasm that continued to increase even now had arrived, and it hadn’t withered so much as he thought.
For Etvin, it didn’t matter.
He was, after all, a blacksmith. He could only hit his mallet and make things.
It wasn’t that he wasn’t interested, but he could only do this job. Then, there was no choice but to do it earnestly.
He knew that he was doing it, but… no, did he know from the beginning? The term of a moody person was just a false pretense.
After all, it was just that he wasn’t confident. It was an escape from reality that came from anxiety.
He just didn’t want to think that what he hit would not reach his ideals.
While he was hammering, he didn’t think about superfluous things. Since he didn’t think about unnecessary things, he felt how far he could do from here. He didn’t want to admit that he couldn’t make what he wanted, so he was running away with an excuse of being a moody person.
Then, the reason why he was holding the hammer and hitting it now was because he had noticed it. It was because he was struck.
From the moment he saw the same kind of sword as his ideal. He could no longer look away.
Therefore, he desperately hit his hammer. That was all he could do. Etvin couldn’t live so dexterously that he was shown the hope itself and gave up without trying to grasp it.
He hit the hammer, hit it, to make the spear. There was a cheering outside. The enthusiasm was spreading. He hit the hammer as if he knew it.
In fact, it might be better to get on with that flow himself. If it was normal, somewhere in his head whispered.
However, he didn’t know whether it was normal. To begin with, it was a matter about a person who wanted to be normal while pursuing his ideal.
Even so, it might have been good to stop at such a time. Anyhow, the surroundings were enthusiastic, and no one would ask for such a spear. The calm part in the corner of his head whispered so.
There was no reason. And there was no logic either.
If he dared to say, his soul was just screaming. That was why it was needed at such a time.
So, Etvin wielded his hammer earnestly.
Under such circumstances… suddenly, a question popped up in his head.
‘By the way, what kind of ideal did I put on this spear?’
Such a question popped up, but it melted into the furnace as they were, and disappeared. He knew that the question had no meaning.
Whether he forgot it or not, his arms knew. If so, there was no problem with that alone.
Iron burst and sparks scattered. It was to cultivate the wishes and feelings of someone.
At the point where the hammer was swung down, a high-pitched, clear sound that was no less than the enthusiasm of the surroundings echoed.
