“Hey baggage handler! As of today, you are fired!”
The hero suddenly said that when he entered my room in the inn.
“…huh? Why are you firing me?
“You’re asking me why when all you can do is to slack off!”
“But I’m properly carrying your luggage and I also do your chores for you…”
“Bullshit! We’re on a journey to defeat the Demon King. If you don’t participate in battles, then it’s the same as if you slacked off!”
What the hero said was right. It’s true that I don’t directly participate in battles.
“That’s really troubling.”
I didn’t want to join the party of the hero in the first place, but my old friend asked me to do it, so I had no choice but to join them.
That’s why if I get fired here, then my friend will lose face for recommending me to join them.
“I’m sure you’ve heard, but I joined this party because someone convinced me to, right?”
Yeah, I’ve heard that someone invited you to our party to help us, but in truth, what is happening? When we were fighting, you were just cheering us on in the corner without doing anything else.”
“I sometimes use items when you need them, right?”
As expected, I felt bad for only supporting them from the rear.
That’s why I also used potions on the rear guard and I also protected them from attacks in dangerous situations.
That’s why I get along so well with the saint and the witch.
“You’re always just making excuses. I’ve already invited someone who is much more useful than you. That’s why you are fired, because we don’t need a useless baggage handler anymore.”
I see… so he’s already invited someone to replace me.
If that’s the case, since he told me that I already have a replacement, then I can’t convince him anymore not to fire me.
“I get it. If that’s the case, then I will leave the party.”
“So did you finally understand your situation, you leech? Before I forget, leave all the luggage that you are carrying; after all, that’s our loot, I already told the inn keeper that we are cancelling your room reservation, so hurry up and pack up your luggage and get out of here.”
It seems that he’s so eager to kick me out that he didn’t even want to get the item list.
Ever since then, I’ve been harassed by the hero, but I didn’t think that he hated me so much that he wanted to kick me out of the party.
“I see… well then I’m going to go to another inn. It seems everyone else is already sleeping, so just give them my regards.”
“Huh? Is there even an inn that has a vacant room in the middle of the night?”
It may indeed be difficult to find a room at this hour at night, but I’d like to think that I could manage it if I went to every inn in this town.
I wonder if my money is enough to pay for the inn this night as I’ve used a lot of my money on the potions that I used to heal the other party members.
Well, since the fate of the world rests in the hands of the heroes, I would just consider that a donation to them.
“We’ve travelled together for almost half a year and I’m grateful for that. Take care of yourself, Ares. Also do your best to defeat the Demon King to save the world.”
“I don’t need you to tell me that! Good bye!”
That was how I was expelled from the heroic party.
When I left the inn, I mumbled to myself.
“….Hmmm, I wonder if they will be okay without my Fully Automatic Support Buff? Well, I guess they’re going to be fine. After all, they belong to the party of the hero.”
