A Girl Who Was Told "You Have No Talent" Turned Out To Be A Talented Monster - Chapter 14.3
“Thank you for stopping me when I was about to attack Rogai on Mount Baruni. If I had really gone through with the attack, I would have played right into his plan.” (Roma)
“Roma-san is an outstanding person… I didn’t want you to forget about your goal, just because of that.” (Litty)
“What do you mean ‘a great person’?” (Roma)
“I couldn’t bring myself to leave home because my parents were against it but Roma-san did. You did something I couldn’t. From the first day we met, I knew that you’re a person with a strong willpower and also a great lady.” (Litty)
“You are actually overrating me when you put it that way.” (Roma)
“No, I would have still been in that village if I never got a chance. That’s where I fail compared to Roma-san…” (Litty)
Litty’s unexpected compliment left Roma at a loss for words. She thought that Litty had no favorable feelings towards her.
After all, it was only natural for her to think so, since she had always thought of Litty as a person with great potential and someone above her.
Looking back at herself, she also realized the importance of what Litty was pointing out to her.
“From the beginning, I simply followed someone else’s lead and convinced myself that I should do what they ask for… This mindset continued until I met Roma-san, and realized that it was actually a weakness… I’m truly grateful to you, Roma-san.” (Litty)
“Oh, you don’t have to thank me. I didn’t do anything in particular to help you.” (Roma)
“Yes, you did.” (Litty)
Despite her words, Roma reflected on her strength, which even she didn’t know she actually had.
If viewed from a different perspective, perhaps that was certainly the case.
Because of this strange exchange, Litty also fell silent. To dissolve the awkwardness, Roma decided to change the topic of conversation.
“As the instructor said, now that we both are 5th Rank Adventurers, we can accept hunting tasks, but… will you be taking any hunting tasks, Litty-san?”
“Yes. But I’m more interested in the Heavy Warrior’s Guild, so I’m thinking of checking out that place as well.”
“That’s a great way to go. Also that guild requires you to wear heavy armor, so I’m sure you…”
She was about to say something, but stopped mid-sentence. She was not in a position to suggest anything to Litty.
Heavy Warrior, because of its very nature, was not really suitable for women, but she decided not to say anything.
In addition, it was not a very likable job among women because of its image being that of something heavy and bulky.
But for Litty, it might be a good option, and it would be foolish to stop her.
“I’ll take up requests to hunt and to accumulate achievements as quickly as possible and aim for the 4th Rank.” (Roma)
“If I got promoted to 4th Rank, I could go on more adventures. Hmmm, I’m not sure what I should do next!” (Litty)
“By the way, Mt. Baruni is a good location, but the Bikki Mine Ruins and the Peat Plains can also be considered as good locations to receive 5th Rank requests. The Peat Plains, in particular, is connected to the capital, so it would be appreciated if you could hunt demons in the area.” (Roma)
“Heeeh! Looks like I’ll have to work hard then!” (Litty)
There was also a Demon Forest to the south, but it was still too early for both of them to go there, Roma thought so.
The more she listened, the more excited Litty became, realizing how fortunate she was to have survived in the Demon Forest.
The Supras and Yangra were 5th Rank, and the Salamanders were 4th Rank. Going deeper into the forest, there were demons that were much more dangerous and could even reach above 3rd rank.
“Litty-san, let’s work hard to reach higher ranks!”
“Yes, Roma-san, I will do my best.”
“You don’t have to add ‘-san’ to my name. We’re not that much different in age, and more importantly, we are…”
“No, don’t mind it, just call me Roma. I’ll call you Litty, too.”
With that, she politely thanked the old couple and left the restaurant.
As for Litty, she was not comfortable with the idea of calling her without honorifics. After all, to Litty, she was a senior, older and more experienced than her, making her feel more respect towards her.
But as long as Roma wanted her to do so, she couldn’t help but follow.
She tried to say it out loud, but still couldn’t get used to it. When she was in the village, she was taught that it was better to treat strangers with honorifics to convey a sense of respect and not a sense of ill intent.
She understood that it was not necessary to do that with Roma. Assuming that everything was about getting used to it, Litty decided to call it a day and took a rest.
