Chapter 31: It’s a custom template that exist for a while now.
Finally, we’re in the town.
Again, I’m surprised by the large number of humans here.
「Sis! Look, look! That thing over there! Something smells good over there! 」
Tres pulls my hem and points to a direction.
It’s the thing from before. A stall… isn’t it?
According to the record of the brave hero, yes, it is.
It looks to be grilled meat on a skewer.
Oh, that’s right. Human don’t eat raw meat, they use fire to eat.
I forgot about it since Ann and her soldier ants always ate the earthworm raw.
But what is this weird feeling.
Why the smell is making me feel hungry all of a sudden?
It doesn’t have any magical power, but I suddenly crave for that fragrant, juicy and sizzling meat.
I never felt anything like this before.
「Hmm, but how can I get it? 」
According to the record of the brave hero, you’re supposed to pay for the food using money.
Again, you need money.
It’s much faster to get my hand on it by killing instead but there are too many humans here.
Let’s go to the guild and sell these magic stones first.
「………First, the guild. 」
「But! I want it now! I want it now! I! WANT! IT! NOW! 」
It’s hard to persuade Tres when she’s throwing tantrum like this.
Eventually, Dos safely knocked her out using a body attack.
I’m sorry, Tres.
After that, with Tres hanging under Dos arm, we head toward a building called the Adventurer Guild.
After a few minutes of walking in the town, we finally arrived at the guild the guard told us.
It has a signboard in front of its door with a picture of a dragon and a crossed sword.
Just like Beardy said.
This is it.
I open the door and enter the place.
As soon as we’re inside, I can feel gazes here and there.
With vulgar laughter.
Honestly, Dos and I are uncomfortable with it.
After looking around, I noticed something.
Oh, I see. So, this is what this wellhole-style entrance hall was for.
It’s the place where the adventurers get together.
Good thing we knocked Tres unconscious. If we didn’t, everyone here might’ve been killed by her already.
Looking at the other side, I can see two well-dressed women sitting beside each other.
Maybe they’re the staff of this guild.
As we were about to head over there, several men stood before us.
What’s with them?
「Hi, ladies. Here today to make a request? Tell you what, how about you hire us C-rank instead? Hehehe. 」
A man with a Mohawk who seem to be the leader talked to me.
Is he trying to hard sell on me?
Not to mention, they are filthy.
Dirty clothes and tattered equipment.
I don’t want to be honest but,
――――Do you want to die?
「Gehihi, so you ladies are okay with it? I see, she’s sleeping now…. If she’s injured, then you just need to bring her to the treatment facility over there…. Give us your name, and we’ll give you discount for it… Kihihi…」
Despite sounding vile, he seems to be concerned toward Tres.
Judging from his face, Dos was surprised by it.
「We are the Black Fang Hyena. For a small fee, you’d get our help anytime…」
「Hehe, that’s right. We do wide range of jobs from handling old people trash bin, gathering herb to even eliminating pests and monsters. It’s cheap since you’ll be doing us a favor after this, hyahaha! 」
「….What do you mean by a favor, exactly? 」
At that moment, their face crooked.
What a nasty smile.
「Hehe, I wonder about that. It’s something like that an old lady did for us on the other day. She gave us a tasty fish after we completed the request, hyahaha! 」
「And she greets us every time we met. Sometimes, even by shouting when we’re inside the guild, hehehe. 」
I don’t understand what’s going on, but one thing for sure they are stupid.
――――Shame they have to die now.
As I was about to grab hold the hilt of my sword,
「Are you guys making trouble again?! Stop that now! 」
I heard a woman shouting from behind.
As I turned around, I saw a dirty human girl.
With a dirty and disheveled red hair.
She’s dirty, that must mean she’s an adventurer.
Ann and I have already established that dirty things = adventurer.
「Seriously, that’s enough! No matter how you look at it, you all look like thugs! 」
They certainly have that looks.
The men then clicked their tongues.
「Tsk, we will remember this. 」
「Hihi, I was about to treat you to a dinner… Hihihi. 」
「Just call us if you need help. We’ll be there, hyahahaha! 」
They took a parting shot before leaving.
Oh, I almost forgot they’re dirty.
It’s a good thing that I didn’t use my sword.
I must not smear the sword father gave me with such filth.
Still, there are another way I can kill them without requiring me to pull the sword.
Now, I don’t have to worry about that anymore.
「Are you alright? Please forgive them, they don’t mean anything bad. They are just a bit worry, that’s all. 」
「Who are you? 」
Instead of me asking, it was Tres.
Wait, when did you wake up?!
Tres, who just woke up, stood right next to me.
「Oops, sorry. I haven’t introduced myself yet. I’m Farley, a C-rank adventurer. 」
If I’m not mistaken, when someone gave you their name, you have to introduce yourself.
Is what father taught me.
「I’m Una. 」
「My name is Tres! 」
「Nice to meet you! By the way, what did you come here for? I heard from the guys before you’re here to make a request, was it? 」
「No, we’re here to register as adventurer. 」
「What! You want to become an adventurer!? 」
Fa… What was her name again? Ah, it was Fooly, right?
Fooly was surprised hearing that.
Plus, she is loud. Very loud.
I’ll kill her.
As I was about to pull out my sword, Dos stopped me.
「That’s right. Is anything wrong with that? 」
「Ah, nothing. I just thought that it’s unusual for someone as beautiful as you to become an adventurer. 」
That got nothing to do with us.
Haa, what a hassle.
Let’s quickly register.
Oh, I should ask this unkempt redhead how to do it.
「Uhm, Foo… ly, right? How can I register as an adventurer? 」
「Oh, about that. You just need to go to that counter and fill in any necessary information. If you can’t write, the staff will write them for you. The only thing left you need to do after that is pay the registration fee. By the way, it’s Farley. 」
「I see. Thank you so much, Free. 」
I said so while lowering my head.
You must properly thank those who teach you something.
Is what I learned from Ann.
「…It- It’s nothing. Just ask me if you have any more question. I’ll teach you what I know.
I was also nervous like you at first. Until that person came and taught me how to become an adventurer.
I helped you before because you remind me so much of that time.
Sorry, am I meddling too much? 」
「Not at all. So, who did you learned from? 」
「It’s Paldi Raven. She’s like a teacher to me. She taught everything I need to know how to be an adventurer. By the way, she also has the same green leaf embroidered black cloak like yours. Well, it looks very similar. 」
「…..Oh, is that so. Where is she now? 」
「I heard she was promoted and now working as the big man assistant in the royal capital. I want to be like her someday. I have to go now. Come to me if you have any problems. 」
Finally, Fa-… Foo-… What was her name again?
The untidy redhead is finally gone.
That was very useful.
The information she gave me can be used as reference in the future.
After that, we finally able to successfully register ourselves as an adventurer at the counter.
During that time, I manage to purchase some information on the common knowledge and skill required by adventurer, the currency value and culture.
And now I have money.
But it really took me by surprise when I cash in the magic stone.
Are they very rare?
I thought they were just snack since father was always eating them.
Sometimes together with us.
They are very delicious.
Personally, I didn’t want to let go the magic stone that has father’s scent but there’s no helping it since it’s an order.
I was a bit annoyed when the staff were persistent about the source of magic stone.
I did what as father told me and lie my way through.
It’s hard when you can’t kill them.
Ah, I still need to pay that guard’s money.
After paying the guard, I received a call from father.
『Una, has the registration completed already? So then, could you tell me the information you have? 』
「As you will. 」
It’s an order from our father.
We immediately bought some skewers and headed toward the nearby inn.
……. This stuff is so delicious.
Around that time inside the dungeon.
MC: That looks delicious…. *Yawn* I’m going to sleep.
Ann: A grilled meat…. We could use that in our dungeon.
The Black Fang Hyena
A C-rank adventurer party which composed of a bunch of thugs. Because they are not choosy and has a good benefit of after-sales service, they are popular among men and the elderly. However, they don’t receive many requests from young women.
By the way, the leader with a Mohawk has a wife and a child. His second child was scheduled to be born next month.
