『Intruders appeared in the dungeon. 』
While I was trying to think of the best solution for this problem, someone came.
Checking the window, there were 20 adventurers shown on it.
Judging by their leather armor and the iron sword, they seem to be only beginners.
『This-, Is this it? 』
『This place. There’s no way this kingdom has only recently been built, right?! 』
『No way! The inside looks completely different from the outside!!』
One after another, the adventurers raised sound of amazement.
That would be so.
I purposely create disparity in looks between the inside and the outside of the dungeon in order to surprise the people coming in here.
『Anyway, let’s go to the guild! 』
『That- That’s right. 』
『I almost forgot about the guild. 』
『Let’s go. 』
As the adventurers slowly recovered, they start walking towards the guild.
『Guild, guild… 』
『Hey. Could it be, is that it? 』
A female adventurer said so while pointing towards the guild.
『Over there, it has guild written on it. 』
『Whaat?! Are you serious! 』
『Is the guild supposedly to be this big?! 』
『What’s going on in this country?! 』
My face unintentionally breaks into a smile just by looking at their reactions.
That’s quite an excellent reaction they have there.
“Please excuse me. Mr Goose has come to the mansion for a visit and I was told that he has something to ask. What should I do about it?”
Eins entering the place through the door came to let me know the important matter.
I’m still enjoying myself, I guess it can’t be helped then.
“Bring him here. I would like to hear it from himself.”
Eins bowed and left.
…It’s quite rare for her to use the door.
A little, Goose?
He entered the room.
If I recall it correctly, he’s the village chief from that time.
“I’ve come here today to ask about the tax.”
“There are few things that have been decided ever since from the beginning. One of the few is there will be no tax.”
“There’s no tax?”
He’s looking at me in disbelief.
What a rude guy he is.
“Yes. There will be no tax.”
“Can the country do so?!”
Will it be able to do so, is it?
“Tell me. What do I need the tax for?”
“It is necessary to make the country better, or to deal with the famine when it happens!”
“To make the country better, it will be free after all, since I can just order those under my control. If famine does happen, then, I’ll be the one who will be feeding my citizen.”
“There’s no way I can trust you with your words alone!”
Only my words?
“Think carefully. It was my subordinates who built this town in a day and I already have dealt with the food crisis.”
“…It seems I got a bit hot-headed there. I’m sorry.”
His face sure has become red.
“Please don’t worry about it. Although it is still in planning stage, I already have secure the alternative source of the gold income.”
“Is that so?!”
He looked surprised with his eyes wide open.
Well, it isn’t a stable income by the way.
“With that said, you can go home now if you already understand it.”
“Actually, I have one more wish. Please hear me.”
Goose said so while looking sorry about it.
“What is it?”
“If possible, I would like to have a guard station outside of the dungeon.”
“Could you tell me why?”
“The farm outside is quite close to the Forest of Beginnings, so some villagers were afraid that they will be attacked by the monster while they were working outside on the field.”
“Is it the same case from the village before?”
It’s impossible to know when the monster will come to attack the village.
While I was thinking so, Goose shakes his head.
“When we’re living in the village before, the village is just nearby and as soon as we’re under attack there will be aid coming for us. But here, the town is in the dungeon.”
“So, you’re scared because your safety isn’t guaranteed?”
“As you said so.”
I don’t see any problem if that’s why.
“Alright. Then, I will have the golem guard the farm outside.”
“Thank you very much.”
With nothing to do, it would be a good idea to have it doing the security work.
“Is there anything else?”
“There’s no more. About the tax, should I tell about it to everyone else?”
“I don’t mind if you tell them. Rather, please tell them.”
That way, it will be better for me.
“Well then, please excuse me.”
Goose left the room after he bowed.
Now then, let’s see what the adventurers were up to…
They seem to be going outside after this.
There will be nothing interesting for now.
I left the room to order the golem.
