Chapter 14 – The Path of Inn

“Ermm…..  is there something wrong? You’ve been sighing, scowling at empty space, and then sighing again since a while ago. May I know if there’s any deficiencies in your guild card?”

I returned to my sense after hearing Receptionist-san’s words.

(Oh yeah, I’m still inside the guild right now. I wonder how long I’ve been spaced out.)

“It’s alright, sorry. There’s nothing wrong, yeah. I just finished checking my status a little.” (Wazu)

“I see. Certainly, that’s indeed important. Wazu-san just became an adventurer so you have to check and understand your status properly. Please accept the requests that within your ability only. If you overestimate your power, it will usually lead to death.”

“Yes….. I will be careful.” (Wazu)

Though I don’t know what to be careful of…..

To suddenly become super strong after living on that mountain. That’s right, this city is not too far from that mountain, they should know a thing or two about it.

“Excuse me, there’s something I’d like to ask…..” (Wazu)

“Yes, what is it?”

“That big mountain you can see from the outside, what kind of mountain is it?” (Wazu)

Receptionist-san made a complicated expression on her face after hearing my question.

“Umm….. You really didn’t know anything about that mountain?”

“Yes. So, please tell me” (Wazu)

“I understand. This information is absolutely necessary to live, so listen carefully!”

I listened the information that mountain, and it was a big shock for me.

That mountain is a place with abnormal weather full of S-rank monsters that’s impossible for human to live, and so on.

How could I survive from that place? I still couldn’t believe it myself….. But perhaps, it was the effects of Goddess Sympathy’s skill. I wonder if I have been protected by that skill all this time.

I got the Abnormal State Almost Invalid skill because I adapted myself to the environment there. I got the Extreme Cannibalism skill because I ate everything there to survive.

I wonder if the cause of my abnormal status is because I ate S-ranked monsters there….. That’s how I became so strong like now….. It’s all thanks to Goddess-sama that I can live right now.

“…..that’s all. That mountain is very dangerous place so you absolutely have to stay away from that. Do you hear me?”

Crap!! I was lost in thought thinking about Goddess-sama for a moment. Receptionist-san has blue vein popping on her head.

“Y-Yeah!! I heard it properly!! I won’t approach that mountain!!” (Wazu)

“Please do so!”

I said my thanks and left the guild. I felt tired after learning the facts about that mountain, so I decided to head for the wind of light pavilion to rest right away.

Just as I was told, the inn located not far from adventurer’s guild.

Wind of light pavilion is a two-stories wooden building with the width of 3 houses. I can’t see any damaged parts so it seems the building is managed carefully. I think is a nice normal inn.

I nodded and went inside.

“Welcome to the Wind of Light Pavilion!!”

When I got inside, I was greeted by a high-spirited woman’s voice. She has light-brown hair with an easy going type face. She spoke to me while cleaning the counter.

Some tables and chairs were arranged for people to have a meal. On the right side of counter, there were stairs that lead to the second floor.

“One person, is it? Do you come for a meal? Or a room?”

“A room please. How much for one night?” (Wazu)

“It’s 2 silver coin for 1 night that come with 2 meals. I’ve never seen your face before, are you an adventurer?”

“Ah, yes. I just became one a moment ago.” (Wazu)

“I see. Then it’s free service for today! It’s to commemorate you becoming an adventurer.”

“Eh? Is that okay?” (Wazu)

“No problem. I’m also a former adventurer, so I understand the struggle of a rookie! Don’t be reserved okay!!”

“Thank you.” (Wazu)

I obediently accepted her offers and said my thanks. I don’t have to worry about my safety because of my status, but I still feel uneasy about the money.

“Lula!! It’s a customer~!!…..

Please write your name in the guest book!”

She handed me the guest book and a quill pen. I returned them to her after writing my name. Not long, a small girl appeared from inside the counter.

“Welcome!! Mmm……. Wazu-san is it? Welcome to Wind of Light Pavilion!! Nice to meet you!! My name is Lula!! I’m 13 years old and the master of path of the inn.” (Lula)

A cute girl with brown hair spoke to me cheerfully after confirming my name inside the guest book. She lowered her head and introduced herself as Lula while blooming a smile on her face.

“…..path of the inn?” (Wazu)

“Ahahaha, don’t mind it!! Come to think of it, I haven’t introduced myself. My name is Kayla, I’m a proprietress and my husband is a cook of this place. Lula is my daughter and she is helping out now. If you need something, you can ask Lula here.” (Kayla)

“Leave it to me!! *donn* …..*cough*!!” (Lula)

She said that while hitting her chest. But because she put too much power onto it, she choked herself.

“…..then, what is the path of the inn you just said a little while ago” (Wazu)

“That’s a good question!!!!!” (Lula)

Lula eyes glittered and her face brightened. She approached me while playing with her index finger.

“Let’s see, the inns that just provide food and bedding are no good!! Those are a third-rate inn!! The second-class inns provide a good meal and a clean bed!! But first-rate inns provide further facilities and more satisfying service!! But, when it come to the top-notch—-” (Lula)

“Yes. Yes. Don’t bother the customer okay? Now, quickly guide him to the room. Use the innermost room on the second floor.” (Kayla)

Kayla-san sent me a life boat when I surrendered while raising the open arm. She told Lula to guide me to the room while handed her the key.

“Okay, I will guide you to the room. In the meantime, I will tell you more about the path of the inn!!” (Lula)

(Nooo, I’m not saved~!!!!!)

I’m braced myself to listen her talk as we heading to the room.

Keyla-san saw me off with such a wry smile.
