“…Eins, repeats after me.”
『I understand. Master has something to say to you. 』
The woman raises her face and look at Eins.
“To be honest, even if I save you there’ll be nothing for me in return. Therefore, I choose not to help.”
『To be honest, even if I save you there’ll be nothing for me in return. Therefore, I choose not to help. 』
Hearing his response, the woman’s shoulder drooped.
“But it will be a different story if you come to this dungeon. In such case, the contract for dungeon protection extends for those who came here.”
『But it will be a different story if you come to this dungeon. In such case, the contract for dungeon protection extends for those who came here. 』
“This seems to be the case. That’s all.”
『This seems to be the case. That’s all. 』
『Thank you very much! 』
The woman gladly lowered her head before running to the exit.
“Eins, do whatever you want. You can take two maids with you if you want to help her.”
『Thank you. Come No. 1, No. 2. 』
A few seconds after Eins called for them, both No. 1 and No. 2 arrived.
『『Do you call me? 』』
『I’m going for escort mission. Come follow me. 』
Eins left the dungeon with both of them.
That afternoon, a system message flows.
『An intruder appeared in the dungeon.』
When I look through the window, I can see Eins, No.1 and No. 2 clothes are in tattered state.
While walking back here, Eins seems to be guarding the women and the children who lined up behind her.
Before, there are old people in her story right?
Where are they?
“Eins, come back.”
『Everyone, my master calls for me. Well then, I need to return to his side. 』
“Master, sorry for making you wait.”
Either it’s because of her sudden disappearance or their increase in anxiety; the villagers seem to be walking slower.
“According to her story before, aren’t there supposed to be elderly people? What about the guys?”
“They said they don’t have long to live for and decide to stay in the shelter to hold the bandit off.”
I see. So, that’s why.
Very well, I understand.
Consuming DP, I bought brand new maid clothes.
“I’m changing my cloth.”
First, I gave it to Eins then pass it to No. 1 and No. 2.
Anyway, judging from their clothes, are the bandits so strong?
“Thank you very much.”
When Eins received her cloth, she immediately changes to it.
So as not to peek at her, I change my line of view towards the window.
『An intruder appeared in the dungeon.』
When I look out of the window, I can see the bandits swarming in.
“Golem, kill the bandits.”
As ordered, the golem moves.
“Eins, you can return to your duty now.”
『There’s a golem!? 』
『Shoot it! Shoot that thing now! 』
『Do it! Just do it! 』
Since it becomes too annoying, I closed the window.
“Master, the village chief’s son want to meet you.”
The one who enter seems to be a muscular young man in his twenties.
“What do you want?”
“Thank you for your help last time, I’m very grateful to you.”
He bent his waist 90 degrees, and thanked me.
“Without your help, we wouldn’t have been able to come so far, not to survive until relief came. Thank you very much!”
He is quite a good looking.
“If it isn’t for the contract, there’ll be no reason for me to help you. If you’re really grateful about it, then send appreciation letter to the guild.”
“But it is for certain that I was saved because of you. Let me thank you too. Thank you.”
“…I accepted your gratitude. Stop it now.”
『The intruder has been repel.』
The golem’s fight seems to have end.
“Well then, shall we have a talk?”
He nodded with a determined face.
That is not to be so stiff.
“Now you have two choices”
While observing the man, I raise my index finger.
“First, borrow a place in this hierarchy but you need to secure your own food and water from the outside.”
“Can’t you help us with that?”
I glare at him.
As I ignore what he just said, I raise my middle finger.
“Second, live and work in this mansion. In this case, no wage will be given but the meals and the bed will be provided.”
“What about the children?”
It’s not like they have to work anyway. Wait, there’s that.
“…They can draw the water and take up the position of watering the plant.”
“If that’s the case.”
The man seems to be convinced.
“If you need time to think about it, I’ll give you three hours starting from now.”
As I said that, the man leaves the room.
