The Second Time in Another World and I, the Mob
One evening, two years after returning to my original world, I picked up the game software for the sequel to “Adolescence of Swords and Magic,” which had suddenly and unnaturally fallen from the shelf.
I was enveloped in a familiar dazzling light, and the next thing I knew, I collapsed on a meadow under a cloudless blue sky.
It took me quite a while to realize what had happened.
For the first time in several years, I felt a nostalgic sensation of magic flowing through my body, and finally realized that I had once again returned to the world of “Adolescence of Swords and Magic.”
“Miss, are you okay? By the way, you’re wearing quite strange clothes.”
“Ah, yes! I’m sorry!”
An elderly woman who seemed to be passing by called out to me, perhaps concerned that I was still sprawled out on the grassy field.
I got up in a hurry and noticed that this place was like a small village.
“… Um, where is this place?”
“Oh my, are you lost? This is Meisa Village.
It’s near the second city, Cerevista.”
In other words, this place was far away from the royal capital where I used to live.
The last time I was here, I was summoned to the royal castle as a saint and treated well, but this time I was thrown out on the grassy plains of an unfamiliar village.
The people of Meisa Village could be seen busily moving about regardless of age or gender.
As I gazed blankly at the scene, the old lady opened her mouth, “Ah.”
“Since the Saintess will be passing through this village next month, we are busy preparing to welcome her.”
Three months ago, a new saintess came from another world.
Don’t you know?”
─Is there already a new saint in this world other than me?
I couldn’t hide my confusion because I didn’t understand everything.
As I was puzzling over what to do, the old lady took out an apple from the basket in her hand.
“Here, eat this to cheer yourself up.
If you are in trouble, come to my house.
It’s the house on the corner over there.”
“T-Thank you very much…!”
Touched by her kindness, I received the bright red apple, thanked the old lady and parted ways, then moved to a nearby shaded area.
First of all, I wanted to take things slow and confirmed the current situation.
“… Oh, it’s so delicious.”
I bit into an apple and found it sweet and fresh, and it calmed me down just a little.
To be honest, I thought it was a dream, but it seems to be real.
“Anyway, it looks like there’s no mistaking that this is the “Adolescence of Swords and Magic” world, right? ….
Hmm, I wonder if I can see the status window.”
When I muttered this, a light blue screen appeared in front of me with a light “pon” sound.
The last time I did this, I only had to mutter the word “status” and this screen appeared, which only I could see.
Feeling somewhat relieved and nostalgic, I shifted my gaze to the screen and gasped.
That’s right, the part that said [Saintess] last time was now labeled as [Village Girl].
No wonder I was a mob.
As expected, I might no longer be the heroine of this world.
There must be a new heroine from another world, just like I was in the past.
The Demon King, the first final boss of “Adolescence of Swords and Magic,” had already been defeated, so there was a high possibility that this was the world of the sequel, which was set two years later.
Feeling a strange sense of unease, I slid my eyes across the screen, and eventually, a shrill voice escaped from my mouth.
“Eh? All the stats are at MAX….?”
Despite my mob-like status as a village girl, all of my stats were already maxed out.
Apparently, I had inherited my stats from when I was a Saintess.
I was the type of person who was always into everything, and the last time I was there, I was working hard, cutting down on sleep, training, and studying for magic.
Being able to use magic was like a dream come true and being able to help someone with that power was a good feeling.
Although I thought I was having fun doing it, those around me stopped me, telling me I didn’t have to be so eager about it.
In the end, as a result of continuing that for nearly a year, all my stats maxed out immediately after I received the experience points for defeating the Demon King.
In addition, my serious character also took root.
When I thought about it now, all my friends were excellent, so I didn’t have to work so hard.
I hardly remembered playing with my friends, and I even regretted later that I should have enjoyed my life in the other world more.
Anyway, I didn’t really understand, but I was quite lucky to have a high stats from the beginning.
At the beginning of the first time, even defeating one slime was a pain.
Dirk, a knight, was always there to help me practice, but I remembered causing quite a bit of trouble.
I hope everyone is doing well.”
If I came back to the same world as last time, surely everyone who traveled with me must be somewhere in this country.
Although there would be new characters, the characters from the first game would appear in the same way in all series.
However, if there was a new saintess in this world, she was the one they needed to protect and be friends with.
It was lonely, but I must be an unusual existence now.
I mean, what exactly was a village girl?
If I, a mysterious village girl, got involved in the game, the scenario of the game might go awry.
I definitely wanted to avoid putting someone in danger because of that.
Above all, I didn’t want to die like that anymore.
I still sometimes dreamed about it.
If I wanted to live a quiet and peaceful life, I should hide the fact that I was a former saintess.
As I read through the status screen, I suddenly remembered the existence of the favorability screen.
Previously, I was ignorant about the romance part and didn’t even know that I could see the favorability level.
After returning to my original world, I learned about “Adolescence of Swords and Magic” again, and now I knew more about this world.
I wish I had learned about it before I came here last time, though.
Considering that the last time we had a friendship ending, the favorability should have accumulated evenly.
“Nina, we’ll always be friends!”
“Nina is really a silly girl.
A woman has to be stronger and more cunning.”
“Maybe I’m the one who needs you.”
Although I felt guilty for prying into my friends’ feelings, I was feeling something akin to hoping that my presence wouldn’t be forgotten by everyone.
Feeling my heart beating faster in my chest, I muttered “Display the favorability screen” for the first time in this world.
At the same time, the screen flipped and turned peach colored.
Perhaps there was a cooler way to say it, but since I was able to see it successfully, I decided it was alright.
Inwardly amazed that I could really see it, I was at a loss for words when I saw the five hearts lined up on the screen.
“Eh… W-What’s with the color….
The pink hearts representing the favorability of my former friends Dirk, Owen, Theo, and Lara were all full.
However, the heart of the first prince, Alvin-sama, was dyed an overflowing pitch black.
