I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 152
Chapter 3-67. Reason for her Anger
She made me sit in the back room and now I’m facing Irza.
I still had no idea why she was angry at me, and I didn’t even know what Irza was angry about, so I didn’t know what to do.
But if I mumbled some strange words again, I might add fuel to the fire, so I kept waiting for Irza to open her mouth.
“So! What are you going to do about it!”
“About what? I don’t know what you’re talking about!”
“I’m talking about the situation here! I’m asking you what you’re going to do about this situation!”
“The situation at ……? You mean, the business is thriving?”
“….Hha? Eh? Isn’t it good that the business is booming? It will be a good experience for the children too.”
Apparently, Irza is angry that this store is thriving in bussines.
But where …………. is there anything to be angry about when a store is thriving?
“Well then, let’s start from the beginning ……!”
“Can you please put down your smug attitude for the moment?”
I tried to say so, but Irza didn’t listen and started talking.
I told her again, but she would not listen to me, so I decided to listen to Irza’s story.
Irza’s story began when I left the children in her care.
Apparently, Ilsa used a variety of methods to alleviate the symptoms of the children’s unstable mental state.
The most effective method seemed to be a stable daily life, and the children soon opened their hearts to Irza.
However, it was unlikely that they would be able to make ends meet with the money I had entrusted to them.
So she decided to have the children work as store keepers.
Since there were few customers coming to the store, Irza thought that the children would be able to handle the situation on their own, so she immediately started teaching them about the store and the products.
The children’s memory was amazing, and they immediately remembered what she had taught them and put it into practice.
Irza felt that she could leave the store in good hands, so she opened the store for a while to collect ingredients for the brewing.
When she returned, an incident had occurred. There was a crowd of people in front of the store.
She wondered what was going on, and went in through the back door to find that there were many people inside the store, and the kids were busy dealing with them.
She immediately pulled Jin to talk to her and found out that the kids had worked hard to advertise the store.
The word that a child was working at the store drew their interest, and they entered the store, which quickly became a rumor that the store was run by that A-rank adventurer, Irza.
“What’s wrong with that?”
“I enjoy watching the kids grow up, and I know that those kids have a gift for business, and I also believe that this business is a success. But …… I’m …… I’m ……!”
“I don’t want to work!”
Irza leans over her desk after I deliver a chops her in the head with the speed of sound.
I throw my voice at Irza, who is propped up and stretched out on the desk, as if I’m going to shower her with my voice.
“The kids are doing their best to run the store, and you, their employer, are the one who is in charge! You should be aware that you are the one to give them a good example!”
“But my ass!”
When Irza looked up, I gave her another chop on the head to shut her up.
I thought it was something serious, but when it turned out to be something trivial,…… my worries was wasted.
Irza seems to be forced to work because the goods are running, so let’s hope it’s good medicine for everyone.
Damn it …… Now I feel like I should make one of the children to be the owner of the store. ……
“Hah …… I spent a lot of time on stupid nonsense …….”
“This is a huge problem for me, you know!?”
“Enough of this crap or I’m going to chop you.”
I created a sharp water blade and brought it close to Irza’s face.
Feeling the pressure of the blade and me, Irza turned blue and apologized by backing away significantly.
“… I- I’m sorry…”
I’m sure this store can get by without Irza right now, but even so, I asked Irza to take care of the children.
I want her to take good care of them as their guardian.
I didn’t come here in the first place to listen to Irza’s complaints.
If I don’t get down to business soon, Uchikage is going to come home first.
“Okay, let’s get down to business. Sit down.”
Gradually, Irza sat down in her chair.
Now, where to start asking ……. Well, it’s probably safe to start by asking what’s on her mind.
I decided to ask what happened to the slaves.
“Irza, what happened to those slaves?”
” Oh, errrr, ……the day after I heard from Ouren-san, I reported it to the guild. I thought that if I did that, they would guarantee our safety and rescue us. ……”
“And the slaves?”
“Well,……, a survey team was dispatched two days after Ouren-san left the city, but…………. they were all dead.”
“…… I see.”
Destruction of evidence. Such words came to my mind.
Lequam must have anticipated that we had the skills or something to break the curse.
If the curse had been lifted and the slaves had given up the information, he would have killed them all to keep them quiet because he knew his pursuers would be coming soon.
While thinking that this was the way he would have done it, I regretted that if I had failed to kill him, I might have been able to prevent that from happening.
At that time, it was already too late.
“Do slaves get buried in graves?”
“No, they are thrown into a pit or burned and buried in a convenient place.”
They say that if you fall into slavery, they don’t even make a grave for you.
It is a cruel thing that we can’t even choose our place of death based on our status, even though we are all the same living civilized beings.
Although it is not my place to say this, as someone who has seriously tried to kill people.
“… Then what happened to the Ramleys family?”
“The Ramleys had a guild investigator come in and conduct an investigation and found the basement. They were accused of harboring Lequam, who was conducting inhumane experiments on people, and they have forfeited their position and all their property, and are now a fallen aristocrat.”
“I guess they deserved it.”
I suddenly remembered the former king of the Kingdom of Garott and Rudd.
It is a little funny to think that those two are also living like fallen aristocrats, but that is to be expected since they have done all those things.
“I heard he ran away.”
I’ m not sure that that one should be so easy to catch. ……
Now, the rest of what I’m going to ask for is ……
“Is Dolce alive and well?”
” Yea. He’s still doing well, you know? I hear he’s now providing a small amount of funding for the orphanage.”
“He’s still the same. Even though he had said so many bad things about the orphanage.”
“Even so, there is no place other than an orphanage that will readily take in children for purposes other than slavery.”
“I suppose so.”
It seems that Dolce is doing surprisingly well here.
I promised him I’d help him back then, and I’d better go see him once again.
“Ah, by the way, …… what happened to Alena and Satella?”
“Satella is going back to her hometown to help rebuild the city. Alena wanted to become an adventurer to protect her hometown, so I let her follow me. She’s now a member of our party.”
“Yup,. I hear Jigul is doing well as an adventurer as well.”
“He’s still in the E rank.”
“….He’s doing his best, isn’t he ……”
I didn’t think Jigul would be ranked higher than me.
But then again, I’m sure F rank will be up in no time, so there’s no need to rush at all.
I wonder if Jigal is in a party?
I don’t think he’s doing anything dangerous like going on solo, but I’m a little worried that there is no age limit for moving up a rank.
From E rank, it is expected that he will usually have to deal with monsters, and it seems a little too much for Jigal, who is still very young. ……
“Is Jigal doing okay?”
“He seems to be doing well as an adventurer. I taught him some magic, and he should be stronger than most adventurers.”
“Is it that easy to learn magic?”
“As long as you get the hang of it. ……”
I see, so that’s what magic is all about.
I saw Rose’s magic once, and at that time it seemed to me that she was deploying the magic exactly as Irza had taught it to him.
It looks easy, but I’m not sure because I haven’t tried it …… yet.
I don’t have the skill set of a water projectile, so I’ll have to experiment with something else, because I don’t have that skill set.
“Please teach me magic some other time. I don’t know what to do.”
“I’ll just teach you the basics. If you can do that, you can apply it to other things.”
“Thank you. Then, I will take my leave here.”
” All right. Ah, if you see him trying to do something dangerous, please stop him.”
“Of course. Then, please do your job.”
I left Irza magic tool store with just a final note to nail Irza in the face.
