Chapter 16 – What a Simple Bunch

The owner of the rugged voice was coming from behind the counter. He glared towards us with some incredible look on his face.

The man is bigger than anyone else in the place. His height is more than 2m, thick arms and chest that’s made of muscle. His eyes are sharp, and next to his right eye there’s a single large scratch, down to his cheek. There is no single hair on his head. If it’s not because the apron he wore, normally, you can tell by look that he is indeed a veteran warrior.

The baldy was approaching us with such an intimidating aura around surrounded him. Then, Lula sneaked out from my back and threw her arms around that baldy.

“Uwaaa!! Father…!!!!” (Lula)

“Oh what is it Lula? What happened?”

(F-Father?? That baldy is?? …..nothing alike, but it’s a good thing for Lula.)

Lula explained about what had happened to the baldy while holding her tears. Occasionally, even the adventurers around was also adding the story.

Please explain about me properly as well, since that baldy is staring at me from time to time. By the way, I’m still grabbing the red-haired guy’s hand while remain glaring at each other in the meantime.

It seems they finished the explanation. After patting Lula’s head, the baldy came to us with Lula hiding behind his back.

“Are you from Black Flame that mocking my cooking and quarreling with my daughter?”

“What of it? Your cooking tastes bad.”

“I don’t think so, though.” (Wazu)

I denied it immediately because I didn’t think the same as these guys.

“Fuu~….. it seems you just came to this city recently.”

“So what?”

“I am Regan, adventurer’s guild master of this city.” (Regan)

(Haah!?!?! Just now, what did this baldy say? Guild….. master….. this baldy is…..?)

The Black Flame group was surprised upon hearing these words, and I…..

“No way!! Someone like you….. is Lula’s blood-related father!! Just tell the truth already!! That actually, Lula is a child from Keyla-san former marriage, right?” (Wazu)

“Is that your concern!? We are really blood-related!! Lula is my beloved daughter!!! You hear that?” (Regan)

“It’s a lieeeeeee—–!!!!!” (Wazu)

The adventurers around nodded in unison while folding their arms on my words. I fell down on the spot.

(Why?? even such a baldy old man has a wife and daughter. But right now, neither friends nor lover on my side….. it’s unfair….. it’s absurd….. it’s too much!!)

“Tch!!”

Not liking the situation, those guys clicked their tongue while trying to leave this place. However, Baldy, I mean guild master didn’t seem like he would overlook them.

“Hey Black Flame!! It’s because your behavior is a little unsightly. Tomorrow, you come to my room in the guild office first thing in the morning!!” (Regan)

“Huh? Why is it? We are A-rank adventurers, why should we be bothered by such a trivial thing?”

(A-rank? Ah, come to think of it these guy said from A-rank huh….. fuuhu….. just wait, you guys!!)

While Baldy, I mean Guild Master was still arguing with those guys, I was laughing inside my head.

“Run away, huh? What, it seems you guys are not a big deal. Are you really A-rank? Oh I see, you earned A-rank through taking part in other people’s achievements, and it’s not because of your own ability right? Well, it’s certainly will be embarrassing if people found out that your power doesn’t live-up to your rank. Because of that, you make several reasons in order to run away, right? It can’t be helped. I will overlook you this time, so get out from my sight at once!!” (Wazu)

I threw some words of provocation that I could come up with. Baldy, I mean Guild Master was glaring at me as if telling not to say unnecessary things. On his side, Lula was looking at me anxiously. And the guys from Black Flame, they were furious until their faces turned bright red.

(What a simple bunch…..)

“Bring it bastard!! I will engrave the terror of Black Flame on your body.”

I and the guys from Black Flame were glaring at each other while ready to move at any moment. They had already put a hand on their respective weapon. But there was a person who couldn’t overlook the situation.

“You guys, stopped it at once!!” (Regan)

Baldy, I mean Guild Master interrupted us by standing between me and Black Flame, while trying to open some distance with his hand.

“Hey, Guild Master. Don’t expect we will just let it pass after he said that much.”

“I know.” (Regan)

Baldy, I mean Guild Master was showing a face as if he chewed on some bug. I was laughing on my heart because I had successfully led the Black Flame guys by nose.

“If the kid over there is willing, then….. I will permit you guys to use guild training field for a mock battle. But remember, killing is forbidden. How about that?” (Regan)

“No problem. Because we have an investigation report for tomorrow, how about the day after tomorrow at noon?”

“Well, I don’t mind.” (Wazu)

“I will make you regret for picking a fight with us.”

Black Flame guys confirmed my acceptance and went out just like that.

(Good everything goes well…..)

I grinned while watching their back.
