A Girl Who Was Told "You Have No Talent" Turned Out To Be A Talented Monster - Chapter 14.2
In the village, Litty had been praised for trivial things, but she had never achieved something significant.
And then there was Yggdrasia. Let’s not talk about them.
Now, she had finally achieved something important and there were so many people present here to praise and congratulate her.
Litty’s face brightened up at the thought, and tears unknowingly welled up in her eyes.
“Um, everyone…thank you. For someone like me…” (Litty)
“You underestimate yourself at times. It’s good to be humble, but you should have a little more self confidence.” (Branch manager)
“Yes, I will.” (Litty)
“Roma, you have a lot of potential. It would be good if you could try different job guilds, not just this one.” (Branch manager)
“Thank you for your precious advice.” (Roma)
The tears in Litty’s eyes were at the edge of falling because of the words from timid and mild Toito.
James’ encouragement made Roma more determined.
“Um, well, Daniel, who took the field exam with me before, had mentioned to me that some of the higher ranks require more than one title.”
“That’s right. For example, a magical swordsman would need the titles of Swordsman and Mage. However, there are not that many guilds for the higher level jobs. From that point, it would require quite a lot of time and effort to reach some of those places.”
The phrase “various job guilds” caught Litty’s attention as well.
There was still the Heavy Warrior guild in this town.
She was having a hard time deciding which one to go for, but for now, she had another goal in mind.
“Now that you’re a 5th Rank adventurer, you’ll officially be able to receive all sorts of tasks. I’m looking forward to seeing you in action.”
“Yes! I hope you all stay well!”
Even though the time spent in the job guild was short, it was memorable. Litty was truly grateful to those who acknowledged her and her abilities.
She engraved the advice about having self-confidence in her heart and tried to change her thoughts accordingly.
After turning to go out of the gates, she burst into tears of joy.
Litty and Roma sat down at the restaurant, where the old couple welcomed them with open arms, especially since Litty brought a friend.
Roma, who had been greeted with sandwiches, juice, and desserts, was surprised by the warm welcome and couldn’t hide her bashfulness.
“Um, you don’t have to…”
“Don’t worry. Please don’t hesitate and enjoy your meal.”
She was once again surprised at the unexpected warmth as she ate the meal.
Roma looked around the restaurant and was amazed that there was a place in town that served such delicious food.
There were not that many customers. It didn’t even look like a popular place, which was unfortunate.
“Even the sandwiches taste so different. This would definitely bring in more customers.”
“I would appreciate it if that was the case. There are more and more restaurants that serve low-priced food these days. The times have changed.”
“The quality of the food in those restaurants is acceptable for its price. However, restaurants that serve this kind of delicious food should also gain the popularity that they deserve.”
“I was also hoping to get more customers, but after having Litty helping in the restaurant, it didn’t really matter to us anymore.”
“Because of Litty-san?”
Litty, who had already finished all of her sandwich, was sipping her juice. With sauce around her mouth, she looked like a girl next door.
Not long ago, Roma would have wondered how this girl changed the couple’s life. But now, she could somewhat relate to them.
“If I can make the food that I am satisfied with and there are people who want to eat it, then it is more than enough to make me content. Since the money we earn is more than enough for our living, then there is nothing more I can ask for.”
“Yes, yes, the days before Litty-chan came, we were feeling really depressed, you know.”
Roma never had the chance to have a heart-to-heart talk with Litty, but this girl mentioned that her dream was to be an adventurer and go on all kinds of exciting adventures.
At first, Roma thought that Litty was the same as her as they were of similar age, but she never expected that their aspirations were so different from each other.
“Litty-san, you are only working hard just to go on adventures, right?”
“Yes, that’s right. That’s all I’ve ever dreamed of.”
“That’s really all you’ve ever desired, huh?”
It seems she was even oblivious to the idea of surpassing or beating others.
Competitivity could be a good weapon to hone oneself, but sometimes it could also be a double-edged sword. The setback would occur when one of the competing sides realized that they would never be able to surpass the other party.
Roma’s goal was to prove herself and make the men who once ridiculed her to respect her, which in turn, would require her to be on the top of everyone and second to none.
When she was defeated by someone stronger than her, she started spiraling down a bottomless abyss.
People like Litty, on the other hand, were those who kept running forward and had strong conviction to their goals.
Although there might have been differences in their talents, Roma realized that it wouldn’t be bad if she were to look at the situation from the perspective of a broad-minded person.
