“You are an F-rank that just joined yesterday!?!?” (Regan)
An angry voice echoed inside the guild master’s room on the third floor of guild building. I was called by Baldy, I meant Guild Master to this place because of what happened yesterday.
We sat face-to-face sandwiching a table in front of us. Because he wanted to know more about me, I told him that I just joined as an adventurer yesterday. That was the cause for the angry voice from before.
(Too loud, Are you trying to make me deaf?)
“Goddess’s gracious! I’ve heard yesterday’s situation from Lula and understood that those guys were in the wrong. But a mock battle between F-rank and A-rank is a little….. Let’s cancel it!” (Ragen)
“Eh? No, please let me do it! Bal—Guild Master!! Those guys were making a fool of your cooking!! Out of loud!! It’s enough of reason for me!! Don’t worry, because I won’t lose!!” (Wazu)
I will be troubled if he cancels the mock battle.
“I am glad you praised my cooking….. phew….. Well, I do think that rank is not always represent one’s ability….. By the way, you have a different image with the story I heard from Lula and Emma. Such as belligerent…..” (Ragen)
“Belligerent? It’s not that. This time, I just have a little objective on my mind….. Well, it’s my personal circumstances, though. By the way, who is Emma?” (Wazu)
“What? She didn’t introduce herself? She is the receptionist who handled your guild registration.” (Ragen)
“Oh, that pink-haired woman.” (Wazu)
“By the way, she just married so it’s no use to wooing her.” (Ragen)
“I don’t have such intention” (Wazu)
(Just what did you think of me?)
I let out a sigh and was about to complaint, but looking at the serious expression of Baldy, I mean Guild Master…..
“Are you really going to do it?” (Ragen)
“Okay, then. It’s not the authority of guild to stop a dispute between adventurers. There are things about excessive behavior but it’s on the very limit this time so I will overlook it, but remember that there won’t be next time” (Ragen)
“I understand.” (Wazu)
I thought the talk ended with that. I stood up from sofa and was just about to leave the room when Baldy, I mean Guild Master spoke to me.
“I see, good luck.” (Ragen)
“I don’t need you to say that. Well then, excuse me, Baldy…..” (Wazu)
“Bastard!! You said it finally!! Let me tell you something, I just shaved my hair off—-!!!” (Ragen)
I didn’t care either way. I came down to the first floor in a trot.
“Excuse me, I’d like to take these requests please.” (Wazu)
“Excuse me, please don’t hand it to me.” (Emma)
I came down to the first floor and pulled 2 of request papers from the bulletin board. When I handed them Emma-san the receptionist, such a reply was returned with a smile and blue vein popped on her head. That was quite scary.
“You did say that you would be careful….. and yet, this happened!? Did you remember what I told you yesterday?” (Emma)
“I remember it. However this time….. well….. there is a lot of circumstances.” (Wazu)
“Sigh….. whatever. It seems you got lectured by Guild Master so I won’t say anything this time….. You want to take these two requests, right?” (Emma)
Emma-san confirmed the content of the requests that I handed to her. Immediately, she let out a big sigh.
“You have a mock battle tomorrow, so why did you take goblin subjugation and herbs collection request?” (Emma)
“To be frank, I don’t have much money. Because all F-rank requests need one-day trip, only E-rank requests are available for me.” (Wazu)
(Well, there is also another purpose though.)
Emma-san let out a big sigh.
“….. I understand. It’s accepted. Please give me your guild card.” (Emma)
I handed the guild card. The request that I received would be confirmed and registered in the guild card. Meanwhile, Emma-san told me about the request’s detail.
“You advance a little from here to the east. Usually, you can find a goblin in the forest around there. Because there’s a goblin nest deep inside the forest, please be careful. Since subjugation proof is the goblins right ear, please bring five of them. Then about the herbs collection commission, we will buy them as much as you have. Is there any question?” (Emma)
“I don’t have a bag to put herbs and the goblin ears. Can I borrow one?” (Wazu)
“No problem….. Well then, it’s your guild card and the bag which you can attach to your waist. Please return the bag later, if it’s torn or damaged you have to pay a fine. Please be careful.” (Emma)
“Thank you very much.” (Wazu)
“Yes, take care!!” (Emma)
I left the guild and headed to the Wind of Light Pavilion. I paid my lodging fee for today and left the city.
On the way, I met Orlando and returned my temporary ID card after talking for a short while. He knew about the mock battle between me and the A-rank adventurers.
(The information is spreading fast, huh…..)
He has a day off tomorrow and said he would come to watch.
I walked for a while and arrived at the eastern forest. It was not as far as I thought. I walked leisurely while collecting herbs. Finally, 3 green monster appeared before me.
Pointed ears and nose with green stocky body. The monster called goblin approached me while laughing with a *geya-geya* sound. They held a rusty knife and wooden stick as weapons.
(Good. Finally, I can test the thing out.)
I’m going to test my power against goblin. I need to train how to hold back because at this rate, I think all the opponent I face would die. That’s what I thought, but……
In front of my eyes, there are three goblin corpses with their head burst out….. in just an instant….. sigh….. just as I thought.
Maybe it’s because of the monsters rank but the main issue is my power as expected. I thought this time I will be able to exert my power properly because I’m aware about it, but it still doesn’t work after all.
If everything stays as is, tomorrow those guys will be killed. Not that I care, but considering about the future, I can’t say the same thing about it. First of all, I need to remember how to go easy with the goblins.
With that reason, I will go to the goblin nest right now.
