Toaru Ossan no VRMMO Katsudouki

A/n: As the story rolls on, the result is that it’s become impossible to call him just another, regular player… I wonder what he will be in the end.
Ordinary Gameplay has Already Become a Thing of the Past
“Art thou Earth?”
That’s right, I turned towards the direction of the slightly old-styled girl’s voice, and there was a single person wearing Japanese-styled clothes, a girl with horns growing out of her head. The horns were growing 2 by 2 in a pair, and they were an exquisite, transparent, jet-black color. Are they Chinese dragon horns? It doesn’t feel like they’re just replicate accessories.
Furthermore, it’s not the Western “dragon” but the oriental “dragon”1 that is the character image, so that might be why the clothes she’s wearing have a Japanese traditional-styled image to them.
“Certainly, I’m Earth, but … what could be your business with me?”
Recently, the amount of voices that call out to me is increasing … I guess I can kiss the ordinary player’s life in this game goodbye. Already putting myself into an on-guard posture; this has already become a bad habit.
“For thee to be so wary, it makes us sad, nou … For thou to understand the easiest, we have the relationship of being sisters with the Fairy Queen; we are the younger sister … with that, does it pique thy interest somewhat?”
With just those words, my wariness has increased to the absolute maximum. For crying out loud, have I been dragged into something yet again?!
Excuse me from suffering of getting dragged into anything further and being forced to stand out, at least for today!
Even if I think that, if I don’t speak up, even though it’s the truth that nothing will begin … the initiative will become her’s.
And furthermore, somehow, this girl is giving off a kind of “dragon” image, so that’s even more reason for me to raise my wariness.
“ – I understand, more or less, what milady is. And so, for what reason did you personally make an appearance for?”
And that right there is where my greatest concern is.
“It is simple; we are tired of that life of seclusion, nou. A tedium that tediously stays no matter what is done … it was at the time that we were still thinking so, that the cool-headed, cold-hearted Elder Sister was no longer making a calm expression; such a thing is rare, nou. And from hearing her talk, didn’t 1 person’s name keep coming up?”
I am already holding my head. Come to think of it, it was after that fight that all these weird things began.
“That is, mine, I suppose …”
Thinking about it well, ever since I took up that fight with vigor, and on top of that I won, various cogs began to spin in weird directions … no, it might have been ever since I got that Fairy Seducer title.
“It is helpful that thee hast understood so quickly, nou; then thou can understand that we thought it most practical to see such a person ourselves, right?”
I understand the reasoning, but … first it should be fine to sneak peeks from far away, ne~, and then I can come out of nowhere and make contact, ne. – If it’s that Queen’s little sister, then somehow I can see it. Though I don’t want to.
“Was speaking with me like this your only goal?”
When I responded like this, the dragon(?) girl in front of me *pero* licked her lips with a red tongue.
“It was our true objective to try a mouthful.2”
Try a mouthful. That statement sent a feeling of a large amount of cold sweat flowing down my spine.
“Hang on; exactly what do you mean by ‘try a mouthful’.”
Of course my voice has become kind of tense; there’s probably no one who would feel good from being told that someone came to ‘try a mouthful’, right?
And then, that dragon(?) girl drew ever closer to the spot where I was standing on guard.
“Thy … that’s right, we are quite interested in the flavor of thy lips … how about it?”
Faced with a very bewitching smile, I … took out my harisen and smacked that head with all of my might.
*Su-pAaa-n!* that hefty sound echoed throughout the quiet, unpopular back-alleyway.
“Uu, it hurts, jya; Thou, isn’t this too cruel, nou…?”
The one who’s protesting tearily is the dragon(?) girl.
“The younger is just like the elder! There’s no mistake that the two of you are sisters!”
The approach is way too strong! Are they unable to act a little more reserved, these two!
Both dignity and allure get blown away somewhere! In this quality, they’re exactly alike, aren’t they?
“But it is certainly true that this is entertaining; we understand a little more about Elder Sister’s obsession, nou.”
Good grief, she finally drew back … even though I’d like to be excused from any further, undesirable trouble.
— A, I haven’t made the food for today’s street stall yet …
“Please spare me … or like, if you’re the little sister, then please tell your older to act more calm …”
At least give that much of a message; I’m already exhausted.
— Today I didn’t enter the dungeon, but isn’t this the same amount of exhaustion in the end? Today is an unlucky day, huh?
“Impossible. Aside from that, we have decided, we will come by and make ourselves a nuisance to thee from time to time. First, wouldn’t thou let us eat some sort of meat dish, nou?”
Th,these sisters are …-!
“Cut it out-!”
Yelling that, like I would allow this! Like I would allow this …
In the end, with her literally not letting me go while saying, “We wish thee to feed us, nou,” there was no other way than to be forced to feed her 3 Horned Rabbit with water herb steaks.
After eating 1, she shamelessly demanded, “This is delicious, nou, seconds!” … just with this, I was forced to realize that she really was the Queen’s little sister, though I totally didn’t want to.
Even so, at the present, after eating the 3 steaks, she said, “After this we will go look around the town, nou,” and left in a lively manner, saving me; I don’t want to meet her anymore, but … it’s probably impossible, naa.
Anyway, right now, I have to make the food for the food stall and then set it up … because talking took so long, it’s already drawing close to the time I have to log out. The troublesome things have increased by one; recently there have been way too many; it may be too much to hope that the troublesome things are over with now, huh…?

Titles Possessed: The One who Charmed Even the Fairy Queen, The One who Defeated a Great Foe Alone
His second name from other players is “The Fairy Queen’s Husband-san”
A/N: The name has not been revealed yet.
Do your best to understand her true nature.
- Though both are pronounced “ryu”, the kanji for Western dragon and Oriental dragon are different. That is what is being pointed out.
- try a mouthful – actually ‘taste test’, but of course I did my best to play up the awkward-horror feeling that ajimi gives off in the original Japanese when being said by a potential-dragon girl.
<t/n: Thank you ‘someone’, SW, RS, and Safaia for your donations!
Earth is speaking noticeably politely to ryu-chan at the beginning, so I hope that got across…
Sorry for the delays. I got thoroughly dehydrated and experienced severe heatstroke, to a point where I was shaking violently and unable to breathe, and I might have gone into convulsions. I did everything I could to prevent it (yes, I drank water the entire time), but that day was unforgiving. I am still a little bitter about the events that led up to it, but the people I was with had more or less good intentions, so the less said the better.>
