A Girl Who Was Told "You Have No Talent" Turned Out To Be A Talented Monster - Chapter 13.2
The head of the Topas Branch Guild was a man with gray hair and an unusually thin build. He had the archery skills that could kill a gulf in an instant even at the age surpassing 70. The old man, who was a skilled archer, quietly stepped in front of the two apprentices.
“Sorry about that. I flew here in a hurry when I heard the report from the two of the instructors.”
“It seems that the apprentices reported to James and Toito about Rogai’s outburst. This time I won’t be able to overlook it.”
“Ah, Branch Manager, I didn’t know that you would be returning so soon. Didn’t you leave just a while ago? I was told that it would take at least four days for you to return…” (Rogai)
After receiving a glare from the branch manager, Rogai put away his sword and corrected his posture, but it was all too late. He did not seem to realize his peril.
He had clearly underestimated the branch manager, but only because he had never seen his strict side.
“Schedules change, Rogai. You are a brilliant Adventurer, despite your character. I thought that one day you would change your mind and take the training of your successors seriously. I told you so when I decided to make you conduct this final exam…”
“There, there is a reason for this…”
“What about that liquor?”
He had been described as a daytime drinker, but that was simply because of his nostalgia. He had been distressed.
“It was easy to bring the punishment you deserved, but this was also troublesome for me as the one who recommended you. As a man who did many bad things when he was young, I have been expecting you to realize your misdeeds after becoming an instructor. Like the man who became rotten after receiving injury and retired, but got back on his feet and became dedicated to his work. Or a desperate man because he lacked self-confidence. Each person has their own light to pursue. And that light would be shining brightly to guide them, you should know that.”
James turned away with a bitter look on his face, and Toito looked up in embarrassment. They were made to remember the past that included a man at the reception desk who was not here.
The fact that they were here as instructors was due to a large part in the personal morals of the branch manager.
Rogai, too, was personally selected by the branch manager, but the result was this disaster.
“It is all my fault… Rogai, as of today, I am revoking your instructor status and your title as a swordsman.”
“What! Wa, please wait!”
“I’ve waited long enough.”
The heaviness of those words reflected the years that had passed. Rogai’s attitude had always been to be harsh with his juniors and to impose somewhat reckless training and examinations on them.
That in itself was fine, but this time, Rogai committed the worst unforgivable mistake.
“The act of endangering future generations for some pettiness and jealousy is unacceptable.”
“Ugh… no! I won’t accept this.”
Before Rogai could react, the branch manager quickly struck him with his sword, still in its scabbard. He delivered a blow to the back of his neck, strong enough to knock out Rogai.
Just before he lost consciousness, Rogai recalled his humiliation. He remembered the parties that had rejected him when he was still an adventurer. He fought alone, bluffing that he had given up on them, but he nearly died many times.
He never achieved much after that, and was overtaken by his more talented juniors. In his old age, he bullied the apprentices who were under him, but unfortunately, at this juncture he encountered a little monster.
That monster was still unaware of her own ridiculous existence.
“Ah, no, let’s do this later.”
The skill which Litty used to defeat the leader of the forest was a magic sword skill. The skill itself was badly executed and would be considered a failure to an experienced user.
But the question was, where did she learn it? How did a two-month-old rookie be able to use that skill?
Even without using that skill, Litty could have gotten through that fight, but they would have ended in a more dangerous situation, being swarmed by gulfs.
There was no particular evidence to back up any of their conclusions, but one thing was for sure. Litty had shown enough power to convince every one of her skills.
Especially for Roma, wondering why she was even feeling bitter trying to compare herself to Litty. Roma decided to think in a more optimistic way and accept Litty just the way she was.
T/N: Rogai lost his swordsmam title which I think is very important.
