Chapter 3-15. Alena’s Rescue Strategy Meeting
When I returned to the inn, Satella and Uchikage were waiting for me.
I thought Uchikage was gathering information on his own, but he’s been guarding Satera all this time.
There were no thieves or anything like that, but they seemed to be in a lot of trouble because they couldn’t go looking for me.
Anyway, before I get down to business, let me show them what I bought.
I really wanted to buy Satella’s clothes too, but I don’t know her size.
I’ll buy them together with Alena when the matter is done.
When I showed him the storage bag, Uchikage’s eyes widened in surprise.
It seemed to be a very valuable item.
Apparently, only high-ranked adventurers and merchants have them.
He was surprised again when I told him that I had obtained it for two gold coins.
It’s said that the original price was about three white gold coins.
I wonder what the hell Irza was?
After that, I showed the water magic spellbook, beginner’s level.
Even though this is a beginner’s level book, it seems it should be very expensive..
It looks like it has been reprinted, a copying machine hasn’t been developed in this world.
Everything is handwritten.
It would take a lot of time, energy, and effort to write a book of less than 300 pages by hand.
It seems that it is not the value of the book itself, but the cost of the writer’s labor that is high.
Satella has a great interest in this book.
I have to read it too, you know.
I’ll study it with her later.
But can Satella use water magic …?
Maybe I should go to the place where Irza was again.
Well, …… I have to get down to the main subject.
“Uchikage, Satella. Listen. I know where Alena is.”
“When I wondered where you went alone … it wasn’t just shopping huh.”
“That’s right. So, here’s the location: …… It looks like she was purchased as a slave by a noble family called the Ramleys. There seems to be an S-rank adventurer as a bouncer. …… Uchikage. Do you know anything about the Ramleys and their bouncer? “
I’ll try not to talk about the rumor here.
It would be bad form to tell this rumor where Satella is listening.
I don’t know if Uchikage knows about this, but even if he did, he would not talk about it under the current circumstances.
Uchikage looked up and tilted his head as if he was trying to remember.
“I don’t know much about the Ramleys family ……, but I do know about the S-rank adventurer who works as a bouncer. He is well known in this town.”
Then, Uchikage told me about an S-rank adventurer who works as a bouncer for the Ramleys.
He is an adventurer who specializes in magic, and his name is said to be Requam Saulmaldt.
He is one of the rare solo adventurers in this world who has attained the S rank. He excels at fire magic and is said to be so skilled that he can easily turn a forest into a burnt field.
However, the reason why such a powerful man is working as a bouncer for a nobleman is shrouded in mystery.
That said, he is only known to be a bouncer for the Ramleys family, and we do not know what he actually does.
The guild would like S-rank adventurers to accept their requests, but he never shows up, and the guild has only been notified that he is only seen at Ramleys’ residence..
And that too from the head of the Ramleys family.
He said that a guild official went out to check once to see if it might not be him, but at that time he came out and greeted them normally.
However, they already tried to ask him what he has been into, but he replied that he can’t tell it because it’s a promise with his client.
In the first place, what did this Requam guy achieve to become S rank?
A few years ago, when …… Requam was ranked A, he deciphered an ancient script that had been impossible to decipher before.
When he incorporated the letters into the base of the magic circle, he succeeded in establishing a magic circle three times more powerful than the one he had been using so far.
It is said that he became an S-rank adventurer in recognition of his achievements as a person who provided it to the army and made efforts to strengthen the magic soldiers.
By deciphering ancient letters and incorporating them into the magic circle he had been using, Requam gained a power far beyond that of an A-rank adventurer, making him truly an S-rank equivalent.
“A pretty nasty opponent if I may say so?”
“I don’t even want to mess with them. We may have the advantage in close combat, but I’m sure they have some countermeasures for that.”
“So I guess the best thing to do is to rescue her without …..getting caught out?”
It may be difficult, but me and Uchikage can handle it.
It wasn’t like we were going in with the assumption that we were going to fight.
If we could escape safely, that was all that mattered.
So I guess I’d better check where Alena is with 【Haze Manipulation】 first, and then break in.
Either way, we have to go to the Ramleys’ house once.
I think we should go there now, check on the situation, and come back at night.
When I suggested this to Uchikage, he easily agreed.
So when I was about to go outside again to gather more information, Satella called out.
“What should I do?”
“… Satella. You wait here for Alena to come back.”
“Uh-uh. …… okay”
“Good girl. I’ll bring her back by the end of the day.”
I gently stroke Satella’s head.
She still looks a little disappointed, but this is for the best.
I’m sorry, but taking Satera with me will only slow us down, and it’s too dangerous.
To be honest, I’m really afraid.
It wouldn’t be so dangerous if we don’t meet Requam, but if we do, it’s the end.
“All right, then, Uchikage. I’m going to do some recon. Take care of Satella until I get back.”
“Your wish is my command.”
After nodding at Uchikage’s response, I decided to leave the inn once more and head for the Ramleys’ house.
It was a 20-minute trip one way.
The Rumley family’s house was located there.
There is a stone statue in front of the gate, but I think it is in poor taste.
What are these fiendish things?
The building itself is white and clean, but this stone statue ruins the neat atmosphere.
Who put this statue there?
Whoever put this thing here has too much sense.
Well, I’m not here to be difficult with the shape of someone’s house, so I pass by the mansion anyway.
I turn a corner and wait at the corner.
I lean my back against the wall.
Then, I deploy 【Haze Manipulation】 to the Ramleys’ house.
Now let’s explore.
This could be seen from beyond the walls of the mansion.
There are some strange stone statues inside.
I wouldn’t want to enter this mansion at night.
I deploy the haze into the pavilion.
It may not be as grand as the Asure’s place, but it is still a magnificent house.
There were carpets, doors and pillars decorated with various carvings and ornaments.
There were many rooms, and a number of servants were walking around.
Various servants on the ground floor.
Lots of kitchens, dining tables, fireplaces and rooms.
When I look upstairs, there are fewer people walking around at once.
It seems that the Ramleys’ head family is working, and the children are playing in the room.
However, the silhouette alone does not give any details as to what kind of person he is.
But it seems that there is no one who looks like a slave in the mansion
Huh? Then where are they?
I searched all over the room, but there seems to be no hidden room.
I thought he might have a cottage somewhere, so I deployed 【Haze Manipulation】 around it, but I didn’t find something like that.
I thought they might have placed them somewhere far away, but when the guild officials came, they said they had come out from here.
So they should be somewhere in this building.
If I can’t find it even if I look around for it this much and I still haven’t found it even if I expand the haze.
There should be a secret passage … or something like an underground room.
For the time being, we will deploy a manipulative haze and search for a basement near here.
Unfold the manipulative haze on the first floor of the building and lower it to the ground.
Manipulation haze can enter and find a room if there is a gap.
If there is a place where you can see the silhouette of the ground even a little, that should be the entrance to the basement.
Then one part of the haze sank to the ground.
I immediately deploy the haze in that place and find out where it is.
Apparently this is like a warehouse.
Wooden boxes are scattered up and things like a bunch of sacks laying around, and some of broken furniture placed there.
I can sense a little reaction…… from the corner of the room.
When I checked why I was looking for it and didn’t notice it, it was apparently not a door made of wood, but a perfect hidden door made of the same stone as the floor.
Fortunately, my haze found it and entered the small gap and miraculously discovered it.
This skill is really convenient.
Looking inside, it’s a basement that goes down on a ladder instead of stairs.
I unfolded the haze in it at once and confirmed the structure inside.
In an instant, the structure inside comes into my head as a silhouette.
To explain the skill of this manipulative haze once again, this skill projects a silhouette of the place touched by the manipulating haze.
If it is a box, a square silhouette is projected as a box, and if it is a person, a silhouette is projected according to the person’s movement.
However, it only shows the area where the manipulated haze is deployed.
Other places cannot be seen if it hasn’t been covered by the haze.
But the thing this skill projected is almost perfectly silhouetted in my mind.
As long as the haze touched it.
They reproduce the silhouette in my mind perfectly.
【Haze Manipulation】has fully covered the underground room, and then I got a reaction from there .
When I saw it, I was immensely surprised.
