Chapter 203 – Seems Like Never Coming Back

Translator: Makisima from wangmamaread

Proofreader: Hieu

“Why is there no food left?”

Mr. Margari answered my question with a bitter face.

“Blame it on the group of nobles. Even though we were here first, while we were busy fortifying the building, they just went and monopolized the food.”


It felt like the end of the world.

“So that’s why when we were seeking refugee, they didn’t want to open the door for us.”

Mr. Margari nodded.

“Where are those nobles now?”

“On the upper floor. But there are guards, we can’t do anything.”

“They just think about saving themselves. Scums.”

“Yes, unfortunatelyー”

I also agreed.

“But why did they leave the special beauty drop DX?”

“Because the candy tastes terrible.”

Taste terrible huh. I should give it a try.

“Rude. It has a healthy taste.”

“Wow, it’s terrible.”

I spat out the candy.

I had thought that there would be such a thing, so I just fetched a few candies in advance.

“This is a personal insult. Spd DX is not terrible. It has a noble taste that can only be understood by the God chosen talents .”

A complete set of fairy tale tricks of the Emperor’s New Clothes.

“Does it mean it requires an artistic delicacy to savour?”

“Sid-kun, I see you finally realize how good the candy tastes .”

Christina picked up the candy I spat and said, “It’s still edible if we wash it.”

“…at least it is precious food.”

“What should we do with the food problem?”

“You are also noblemen, aren’t you? Can you talk to the people above to spare some food over?”

“I am just a poor baron from Midgar Kingdom.”

“I should’ve guessed it. I had no expectations on you since the beginning. Don’t worry.”

I trembled to the excitement.

This was music to the ears for a mob character.

“But this lady is different. I know it straight away.”

Christina had a disposition of a noble protagonist from the top down.

“I was born in a Grant family of Midgar Kingdom… Do you know which noble is above us right now?”

“If I remember correctly…it is the Grant Ijiruwa’s family.”


Christina immediately apologized.

“Do I take your apology as that it is difficult to negotiate?”

“No, I came to Oriana Kingdom for a different reason.”

“Exactly, what reasons do you have to come to the Oriana during these times?”

I asked while letting go my own worry.

“An acquaintance in Oriana Kingdom proposed a marriage request to my family.”

“During this period?”

“It seems that they want to get things done before the war officially starts.”

In short, they wanted money.

“I am the fourth daughter in my house.I’ve got close contact with the Grant Ijiruwa Family in Oriana Kingdom thanks to the marriage request. Well, it would not be a bad thing if it had developed smoothly.”

“It seems that it didn’t develop smoothly.”

“Yes. Although the marriage is settled, I am involved in this problem. My family have successfully escaped, fortunately enough.”

“So, is that to say Christina’s fiancé is Grant Ijiruwa?”

“That’s it”

“The Grant family also have their own problems.”

“I am the fourth daughter, so I have already resolved myself that I couldn’t choose my own partner.. As long as he is not a bad person is enough.”

“However, that gentleman is greedily swallowing food by himself above.”

“He definitely is not a bad person, there must be some reasons why he is acting this way! If only I can say like this” —Chris

“I don’t think you want to say this, I can basically see everyone’s anger.” —Sid

From the surrounding civilians, I felt their murderous sights.

“Hold it. Grant Ijiruwa cares about me. I think I can negotiate.”

“That’s great. In fact, when I saw you, I knew you are a beautiful woman. Remember to get some more food.”

“Fufufu, thank you. All thanks to the special beauty drop DX.”

“That’s right”

“Then, I will go negotiate.”

Christina stepped on the ladder.

“So, do you think she will come back?”

I tried to ask Mr. Margari.

“Who knows. We can only believe in the conscience of that lady.”

“She is a marquis daughter.”

It would be better to say that hernot coming back was the set pattern.

“If only the lady is fascinated in you, boy, then maybe…”

“That’s impossible. But just in case, I took an extra measure.”

“What kind of measure?”

“I called her a beautiful woman.”

“That’s it?”

“That’s it.”


We looked up at the ladder without words.

After a while…


It was Christina’s screaming .

P.s sorry my bad english

    Aulia Posted on4:38 pm - Feb 12, 2020

    The author is busy preparing for the formally published book, as a publisher is interested in his work. And there’s even the manga version. Who knows? Maybe he’ll continue writing once his books catch up with the webnovel or maybe when he feels like it. The name of the chapter feels like a bad omen, though.

Dilan Posted on2:50 am - Jan 26, 2020

Guess he want kidding when he said never coming back

Blue_eye Posted on11:49 pm - Jan 25, 2020

St.George Posted on4:49 pm - Nov 25, 2019

To those waiting for the web novel. The author apologized for the delay and says that they are busy with their work with the book version of this and they say that it will be difficul to update the web novel. They will probably pick up the pace once they finish the book

How to get a harem in isekai:

“I called her a beautiful woman.”
“That’s it?”
“That’s it.”

    eZquinn Posted on9:30 pm - Oct 11, 2019

    Sid logic XD

DrV Posted on2:31 am - Oct 11, 2019

Thanks for the chapter. Next chapter = grants dead? Or they are already died? and maybe zombie?)

    Iarei Posted on2:23 am - Dec 5, 2019

    That was my thought. If they’re hoarding food the chance that they brought some contaminated with zombie drug is higher.

rin2 Posted on10:42 pm - Oct 9, 2019

thanks for the chapter

good work

Paulo Posted on6:29 pm - Oct 9, 2019

Thanks for the chapter!
Please reconsider these two things,
You use “Grant family of Midgar Kingdom” even though there is no peerage rank called “grant.” And later on you use “marquis daughter” anyway. So she is from a Marquess(British spelling)/Marquis(French) family.

Also ladder instead stairs? Ladders are what you usually use to climb utility poles or by firemen while stairs are the steps you use to climb inside tall houses or buildings.

    No Name Posted on8:41 am - Oct 30, 2019

    Grant would be their family name, not a rank.

. Posted on5:50 pm - Oct 9, 2019

I think he’s wondering why there is a ladder in a high-end establishment like Mitsubishi.

Matti Posted on10:35 pm - Oct 8, 2019

Ladder? Not stairs? Why ladder and not stairs?

    Dusty Posted on9:25 am - Oct 9, 2019

    It’s easier to defend against a single peasant in a narrow ladder than a group of peasants on the stairs.

eZquinn Posted on9:23 pm - Oct 8, 2019

what is the update schedule??

tnx for the chapter~

Claian Posted on8:08 pm - Oct 8, 2019


Kasame Posted on7:48 pm - Oct 8, 2019

That scream at the end didn’t sound like a terrified scream , if you know what I mean
( ͡• ͜ʖ ͡• )

    Sid Posted on8:05 pm - Oct 8, 2019

    It sound like she’s coming.. you know what I mean 😉

      eZquinn Posted on9:20 pm - Oct 8, 2019

      U guys don’t say such things
      she will come after falling for Sid
      ………you know what I mean hehe

        Matti Posted on10:39 pm - Oct 8, 2019

        Cid’s never going to come. He has no interest in coming or have anyone else to come. Celibacy for life.

          Sid Kagenou Posted on7:11 am - Oct 9, 2019

          Just let you know, as part of Mob job. I do not have time for maidens heart. I’d rather remain a virgin. Shadow for life for me.

            eZquinn Posted on8:24 pm - Oct 9, 2019

            lmao XD

St.George Posted on7:15 pm - Oct 8, 2019

ticticboom Posted on5:27 pm - Oct 8, 2019

Much obliged for the chapter, but noting who is talking would be appreciated.

Miracutor Posted on1:32 pm - Oct 8, 2019

If there was an Oscar for mob character, Sid will win every time just through his sheer devotion to playing mob.

Carmeops Posted on11:29 am - Oct 8, 2019

Edgeylord Posted on11:12 am - Oct 8, 2019
