Chapter 67 Nobusada's Confession
After settling various stuff, it was already night before I realized.
By the way, the elf parent and child ended up staying in a lodging house-like annex building of the mansion (apparently was used by servants in the past).
After discussing their situation to Sefi-san, for the time being, they will be helping us as assistants in medicine making. Now I don't have to help as much! If possible, I'd like Dillit-san to act as a watchdog that prevents Sefi-san from playing hooky. She always comes to me in tears since she won't start working until it's near the deadline, but she never learns anything afterward. You think it's summer holiday homeworks?! So many occasions where I thought that.
Right now, Mitama, Futsuno-san, Sefi-san and Kagura-san are all in the mansion's living room.
They were exchanging information about how they were doing, and about each of their circumstances.
And I intend to tell them my plan for my and everyone's future. I do have some worry about the outcome. However, after all that's happened, I think it's better to talk about everything except stuff that shouldn't be said (demon king stuff). Or so I thought. That's what I want to believe.
"Err. Okay then, there's something I'd like to tell everyone here. Let me just preface that everything I will tell you now is all the truth."
That I came from another world. Originally, someone or something intervened in hero summoning, and dropped me to a forest to the west of Gramada. Meeting Mitama and Futsuno-san when I left that forest. Meeting everyone at Gramada. That my mana continuing to increase with each level up, to the point that the sky is the limit now. Afterward, the matter with Kagura-san, the matter with Sefi-san, and the matter this time. Everyone listened seriously.
"And yeah. I said this already when I saved Futsuno-san, I love everyone. Normally, you'd only love one person alone, but I cannot hold myself back. I fully intend to give it my all to make everyone happy, so would you stay by my side forever from now on?"
*Shiiin*. Oof, they all fell silent. A-awkward.
"Pukukuku, ahahahaha. Nobu-kun, yer' just too honest. I already said I'm fine with tat'. Mitama, how 'bout you?"
Mitama was perplexed to have the conversation suddenly directed to her. She was fidgety for a while and then she looks straight at me like she's resolved herself.
"...Bring it on. It's the law of nature for females to flock on a strong male. In short, I... love you too."
"I as well. I was able to bring peace to my late mother thanks to Milord. I cannot never thank you enough. B-besides, please take responsibility for seeing me in my unladylike state noja."
I cremated the body of Kagura-san's mother, Suseri-san, with my magic after that event. She was in tears when I gave her a small bag with a bit of ash from the remains inside as a charm.
"Aaahn, me too, me too. Also, Nobu-chan, you love Eleanor-chan too don't you? I don't mind being a concubine you know~."
Oof, she's spot on. But, I don't like the sound of concubine. I'll make it known that I plan to lay out the groundwork so everyone could call themselves legal wives.
"There will be no concubine business. I plan to either get a peerage or become a rank S adventurer so everyone can call themselves legal wives!"
That's right, I've checked on many things on my free times. Polygamy exists in this world, however, only royalty, noblemen and those who have made their strength known, in other words, heroes, brave men, and rank S adventurers are allowed to have their wives all be legal.
Either accomplish national-level achievements, or reign supreme in strength. Neither will be an easy path to tread on. However, I'm sure I can reach that point for the sake of everyone. That's what I've decided.
"Ararara, Nobu-kun is so big now. But, I'm happy~. I have to respond in kind as a woman then. I will fully support you by your side~."
"...Me too. Come to think of it, you haven't told us about the matter with nee-san."
Hm? The matter about Differing Soul Telepathy huh. Oh right, I haven't told them yet.
"That was one of my skills called Differing Soul Telepathy. My mind was completely preoccupied with ways to undo the subordination by any contract back then, you see. However, I don't think there's any disadvantage to it. It's not like slave contracts where the other party is forced to agree after all."
"...In that case, do that on me too! I want to have a definite connection."
"I-I too wish for it. I think having your feelings taken form is a wonderful thing."
"Oh oh, me too. I don't wanna get left out~."
Close, close, too close. They've all inched close on me at once. Oh no, this sweet sweet fragrance is dizzying.
"I-I got it. But just so you know, I'm not sure myself if I can really activate this skill, okay."
The three are staring straight at me. I can't feel the skill activation, but this part is hard to say.
"You three may have to suffer through hardships from here on, will you still take the vow to walk alongside me till death do us part?"
"Of course nanoja."
Right afterward, the 『Sakura of Moonlit Night』 crest on my left gauntlet emitted a dazzling light. At the same time, small crest that looks like sakura petals appeared on the three of them at different points.
Tettere~♪ Those with deep bonds with you have reached a certain number, Differing Soul Telepathy Leveled UP
Muoo, what's the effect this time?
<TLN: If you're reading this novel at any other site than Sousetsuka .com you might be reading an unedited, uncorrected version of the novel.>
【Differing Soul Telepathy】
Lv3 - Transfer mana from the master. The amount of mana that can be transferred differs individually.
Oh! This is convenient. My hoarded mana will be useful!!
"Nobu-kun, what was that just now!?"
"Looks like my skill leveled up. Apparently I can transfer my mana to everyone now."
"Hohou, that's quite nice for me and my little mana."
"Also, by the effect from the previous level up, it will be easier for everyone to learn skills that I have learned."
"!? I've never heard a skill like that before. Ufufu, what'd I do if more girls go after Nobu-chan~."
Twitch, my body shook. Uun, I'm not much of a greedy carnivore type man at all you know?
Afterward, they were interested about the skills I had, so I disclosed everything.

Mitama, Futsuno, Kagura, Sefirot
Oh, got me Genin, and Samurai!
Lowest rank of an ancient eastern assassin that has controls over assassination and illusion art acquired from harsh training. Excels in stealth actions and poison as well.
Job that excels in martial arts that make use of weapons that specialize in cutting starting from 『Katana』 to spears and bows. Also the initial class for those aiming for Swordsmaster and Swordsaint Classes.
Lv2 - Dimensional Storage - A magic that creates storage space by distorting dimension. Depending on skill mastery and supplied mana, it's possible to maintain multiple created spaces.
The requirement to obtain Samurai is most likely Katana skill. The problem is Genin. It's probably added after I've killed a certain number of humanoid monsters. Also, judging from these Swordsmaster and Swordsaint, other Classes probably have Classes of higher order too. Oh right, Jamito's subordinates had various classes on them. This means, there's still a long way ahead of my growth.
Something like that.
The four fell silent. Hm? What's wrong??
Futsuno-san put her hand on her forehead and sighed like she couldn't believe it.
"Listen 'ere, Nobu-kun. First of all, principally speaking, being able to freely change classes is already weird in itself 'ey. And there's even Third Class, that's like Hero Class in legends y'know. And and, what's with that magic aptitudeeee. It's rare for an ordinary magician to have aptitudes for even three elements, see. You usually specializes in one element you're compatible with. And on top of all elements, there's holy, darkness, space-time, gravity, and buff magic, what is this, magical trade fair? And as much mana as 40,000 magicians, you tryin' to destroy a country?"
Futsuno-san rattled on and on. The other three are nodding in agreement. Okay well, I admit that I'm good at wide-area magic. It's nice since there's no need for control. Also, this is a hunch of mine, but I feel that there will more classes liberated after the third. For some reason, I felt like I could see an ex-demon king and no-goddess smirking, but I shook my head to banish the thought.
