As the hero\'s comrade, I died after blocking him from the evil dragon\'s breath.
Well, it\'s fine.
Hero Elkinas was the only friend I trusted to have my back.
I\'ll go out with a bang, I guess, so the hero can marry a pretty woman and live the rest of his life.
…Is what I thought would happen, but after 80 years passed, I came back to life in a completely different body.
“It's regrettable, Arlene. Elkinas went insane. Completely insane.”
That was the first thing I heard.
What else could I do? I need to help my close friend who seems to have not been able to accept my death, so I decided to stay by his side while hiding my identity.
This way he could completely accept the past and become happy, which is why I died for him.
But… I think he recognized me.
\"You… You\'re Arlene, aren\'t you?\"
I touched my face. I definitely don\'t look like Arlene. Shouldn\'t there be no way he could know who I was?
\"I won\'t ever let you go… Ever,\" Elkinas said with shining eyes.
