A Girl Who Was Told "You Have No Talent" Turned Out To Be A Talented Monster - Chapter 21.1
Litty fights at the ruins of Bikki Mine
The Bikki Mine, located not far from the city of Topas, was once a prosperous magic stone mining operation. At its peak, several thousand people lived in the vicinity of the mine.
However, it did not last long. One day, the situation changed drastically when they dug up the home of “Scarbs”, insectoid monsters.
Those monsters began to devour the workers as soon as they got out, leaving nothing behind. Only a few lucky people managed to run away from them.
Obviously, the government organized several strike forces to kill those Scarbs, but they still couldn’t completely annihilate them.
Which would they choose, the valuable mine property or human lives? In the end, the exhausted humans had no choice but to abandon the mine in order to control the situation.
However, that did not mean that the Scarbs would not flood out of the mine if they were left alone.
That was where the adventurers came into picture. By having them regularly eliminate the Scarbs, a delicate balance was maintained.
Was such a conclusion really the right one? At least the adventurers were making money, but some people resented the fact that the government was not going all out to eliminate those monsters.
“Those Scarbs, breeding in the Bikki Mine, are just Rank 5 demons, so it’s not that big of a deal.”
“But I’ve heard that there are lots of them! Have you ever been there before, Roma-san?”
“I tried to take them down solo the other day, but the results were not good. The narrowness of the cave made it difficult to fight. In addition to the sheer number of them, the price per kill is cheap. As the gains don’t match the losses, no one wants to fight them.”
Litty, who happened to meet Roma again at the Adventurers’ Guild, decided to form a party with her. Roma-san, too, had been working diligently since then, steadily accumulating achievements.
Litty felt that Roma’s state of mind had changed a bit since they last met at the Swordsman’s Guild.
When she learned that Litty had earned the title of Heavy Warrior, she was only a little surprised. It was quite different from when she first earned the title of swordsman.
It was a sign not only of Roma’s ability, but also of her personal growth.
“So this is the Bikki Mine… you can use light magic, can’t you, Roma-san?”
“Yes, I learned it when I was in the Magician’s Guild. I’ll teach you later.”
“That would be great.”
“And I thought I told you not to call me Roma-san anymore.”
Even though she had lived in a village, Litty was taught by her parents to always be polite and respectful whenever talking with other people.
There was no merit in thinking about what others see you as. What was important was that you would leave a good impression on people by being considerate towards them.
For Litty, who had been raised in such an environment, it was really difficult for her to casually address those who were older than her.
“It’s time for us to enter.”
Litty’s weapons this time consisted of a sword and shield, while Roma used a two-handed sword. After entering the cave through its narrow entrance, Roma used her light magic to brighten up the dark cave.
A small ball of light emerged from Roma’s hand and served as a torch. It was a very basic magic, but it cost a lot of money and time to learn.
It also consumed magic power, giving them the option to choose between using this or a torch.
“Don’t go towards the deeper part of the cave. We need to allocate our resources accordingly…”
“Here they come!”
