A Girl Who Was Told "You Have No Talent" Turned Out To Be A Talented Monster - Chapter 23.1
Litty Escorts A Noble Young Lady
“Litty-san, you’ve received an invitation to the promotion exam for Rank 4.” (Receptionist)
As Litty was looking at the request form, Cynthia, the Adventurer Guild’s receptionist, called out to her.
The recent material gathering from Lafla and honey gathering from Vespa were enough to sway the Topas branch manager.
Hearing about the promotion exam, there was no way Litty would be able to keep her calm.
“Really? I can finally rise to the next rank!” (Litty)
“Only if you pass the exam.” (Receptionist)
“The notice came earlier than I expected!” (Litty)
“Well, it’s certainly unusual to be notified of a promotion exam this fast.” (Receptionist)
Some of the adventurers were aware of Litty’s recent successes. One Rank 3 adventurer raised his eyebrows at the news, while a Rank 4 adventurer was inwardly getting impatient, thinking that it was ridiculous.
One of the adventurers, who spent years as a Rank 5, said, “I knew it. It’s all about talent, isn’t it? I didn’t expect a girl like that to overtake me so soon.”
“Maybe it’s time to take over my family’s farmhouse…” (Bystander 1)
“You idiot. That’s why you’re only Rank 5. Watch me, I’ll be up there soon too.” (Bystander 2)
Some adventurers were feeling excited as well as defeated as they saw someone getting promoted to Rank 4. It was surely enough to motivate those who were struggling to rank up.
In the first place, adventurers never knew if their lives would be in danger the next day. Giving up was also an honorable choice. The Rank 3 adventurer commended them.
“So, what’s the exam about?” (Litty)
“Here, you need to complete this request.”
Request: Escort Count De Mile’s daughter
Duration: 1 day
Description: I need an escort for a young lady who went out from the royal capital to the city of Topas.
One of her escorts fell ill, and she needed a substitute.
The quest requirements for Rank promotion varied from guild to guild. Sometimes the guild sponsored the exam, like in the case of the Rank 5 exam, and sometimes, there were cases like Litty where it was a request to clear a higher rank quest.
“The Count De Mile?”
“Count De Mile is the head of the Marcelo family, an aristocrat who has made a fortune in the capital.”
Litty could not understand unfamiliar words such as “aristocrat” and “count”. In short, she could only vaguely understand that he was a great man.
She wondered if it would be all right for her to escort the daughter of such a great person.
“Of course, it’s voluntary. Do you want to accept it?” (Receptionist)
“Okay. I wish you the best luck.” (Receptionist)
At this moment, Litty was filled with immense excitement, as this was her first escort request. She didn’t have the presence of mind to worry about the client’s situation or the character of the person she was escorting.
In the late afternoon, Litty even forgot to eat her lunch and went straight to meet her client.
Two men were standing in front of the “Sky Ocean” hotel where Litty’s client, Count De Mile, was staying.
Litty, judging them to be Count De Mile’s bodyguards from their appearance, steadily approached them.
“Hi, I’m Litty. I’m here for the escort request.”
“May I see your adventurer’s card?”
The man who replied to her, casually checked Litty’s Adventurer’s Card and walked inside the hotel after returning it back to Litty.
And another man, who was also standing at the entrance, was silently pressuring Litty, warning her not to enter the hotel without any permission from inside.
The hotel was currently on high alert as the Count and his daughter were staying at the hotel.
The general guests and even the access of the employees was being controlled.
“Sorry to keep you waiting. I’m De Mile.”
Count De Mile, an elderly man dressed in an expensive costume, appeared before Litty. Next to him was a straight blonde-haired lady, younger than Litty.
Her elegant white dress and long skirt contributed to her haughty aristocratic atmosphere.
“Yes. Here is my adventurer card.”
De Mile silently looked at the adventurer’s card Litty held out to him, rubbing his chin as he wondered what to do with it.
