I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 154
I feel so tired today, maybe anemia?
Chapter 3-69. I’ll try my best tomorrow.
I met up with Uchikage and he told me everything he had seen.
It seemed that the Ramleys’ mansion had already been demolished and a new mansion had been built.
It seemed that it was true that he had become a fallen noble.
The entire basement had been completely buried in landfill, so it was impossible to enter or even see the house.
However, before burying the land, the guild officials must have conducted a survey to find out what happened to Lequam.
I hope they will use the information they get there to capture Lequam.
“So this is what it’s like from my side.”
“I see. Good job.”
“By now, Alena and the others should have finished selling, and we’ll go get the money for the Red Boar tusks.”
“Oh, that’s right.”
The tusks had been entrusted to Yurie and her partner in order to fulfill their request.
It is a bit of a nuisance that a request for a tusk is only validated if the tusk is made from a prey that has been killed, but this is a path that we will take someday, so we had better keep this in mind.
I wondered how much those fangs would be worth, feeling a little excited, me and Uchikage decided to wait at the inn until everyone had returned.
Since waiting is simply boring, I decided to maintain my three-foot-long sword, Hakuryuzen, and after taking a set of maintenance tools out of my magic tool bag, I pulled the blade of Hakuryuzen out of its hilt.
I was actually a little concerned that I had not been able to take care of it at Irza’s store.
Seeing this, Uchikage also began to take care of his equipment.
It seemed to take a long time to dismantle Uchikage’s weapons, and it seemed to take a lot of effort to disassemble a single metal claw.
However, once one of the claws was removed, the rest seemed to come off easily. After removing all the claws, he oiled the parts where the claws were attached and the movable parts.
“That’s a tricky weapon.”
“Not really, once you get used to it. But it’s tricky to fix when it breaks. ……”
“Does it automatically retract into the arm when you let go of the grip?”
“Yes. When you equip it, you can either swing your arm to lower the claw or use your other hand to lower it.
“Dang-. Who made this?”
“He is the old man who made Ouren-sama’s Hakuryuzen. Unfortunately, mine is not inscribed. ……”
That old blacksmith, Oni-jii, also made weapons for Uchikage, no doubt.
With a craftsman of such skill, he must have many apprentices.
“Come to think of it. How do they get the inscription on their own? I thought it was something a craftsman did.”
“I’m not sure if that’s the case, but it has not been …… clarified yet. Some people say that it is the skill of the craftsman who engraves the inscription, and others say that it is engraved by God, but actually, no one knows anything about it.”
They don’t even seem to know at what point the inscription is engraved, and it seems that sometimes the inscription is attached at the time of the iron ingot, and sometimes it is attached while being used.
I really don’t understand what that means, but I convince myself that this is a different world and that such things are possible.
Even if I think about it any further, I don’t think I will come up with any answers.
The conversation with Uchikage ended there, and we concentrated on maintaining our weapons.
I would not be able to talk much when I was tending to something dangerous, but otherwise I might hurt myself.
We both knew that, so we kept our mouths shut and worked on our own weapons.
“Ouren, I’m home!”
“Oh, you’re back.”
Just as I finished maintaining Hakuryuzen and put the sword back on the hilt, Alena and the others returned.
Alena was running toward us with a sack as big as a big sack, while Reizen and Rose behind her looked exhausted.
What in the world had happened to them? ……
“This is the money from the Red Boar fur!”
“There’s a lot of it……… How much is in it?”
“Let’s see, four hundred gold coins.”
I heard a funny number, but I don’t think Alena would make such a joke.
But if the numbers were correct, that meant there were about four white gold coins on hand.
I glanced over at Reizen and Rose, both of whom had already slumped down on the floor with their backs against the wall.
“Hey, Reizen. What happened?”
“Sorry, aniki. …… we couldn’t stop her. ……”
“It was beyond our control. ……”
“I mean, what happened? ……”
Both of them were looking as if they didn’t want to talk about it.
Alena is in good spirits, but Reizen and Rose are exhausted, which means that …… most likely, Alena has done something.
And that’s when I heard a voice that couldn’t read the air.
“I’m back! … Huh? Did something happen?”
Yurie, who entered the room with a small bag in one hand thrust forward, quickly sensed that something must have happened when she saw Reizen and Rose, promptly slowed down the pace of her entrance.
I wonder why? An unpleasant feeling came over me.
The bag that Yurie is holding now is probably the money for those Red Boar tusks that she wants to give back to me.
And now, I have the money for the Red Boar fur that Alena gave me.
The bag that Alena brought back is about a full sack, and the bag that Urie brought back is so small that I can just hold it in one hand. This is obvious to anyone who looks at it.
“Let’s see…… Yurie. Let’s hear your story first. How did it go?”
“Our request was successfully accomplished! I’ll thank you for that. And here is the money from the selling of the Red Boar’s tusks. There are fifty gold coins in it.”
Then Uchikage finally realized the scale of the situation, opened his eyes, and dropped some of the claws he was holding in his hands.
The Red Boar’s tusks were worth 50 gold coins, and the Red Boar’s fur was worth 400 gold coins.
Obviously, these are strange sums between these two.
“A- Alena? Can you tell me what happened over there ……?”
“The blacksmith’s uncle called my Red Boar fur a fake! I told him that it was real, but he didn’t believe me at all, but he said he would admit it was real if I showed him proof, so I knocked him out with my 【Heavy Weight】 “
Oh my goodness, is she starting to become a hot headed girl?
“…… Then….. How did you get this amount of money?”
“When I forced him to wake up, he said, [Please take this all and leave!] and gave me this much money.”
Probably, he was frightened by Alena’s ability and put this much out on the spur of the moment.
It would be wrong to say that the owner of the blacksmith store who suspected her was wrong, but couldn’t Alena have produced some evidence other than a direct attack?
Reizen and Rose, who were watching the scene, probably tried their best to stop her, but Alena’s ability was powerful.
Even if they went to stop her, they would only suffer from collateral damage.
That ability is something so terrifying that even Reizen could not stop it, and knowing that, he probably could not even make a move.
Now we know why those two are so exhausted.
I try to imagine what they’ve been through, but …… I pity them with all my heart.
“You guys are crazy!”
“I think so, too.”
“You’re no different!”
That’s strange. It seems that, at last, Uchikage is the only sane member of the Reitei members.
Anyway, I’ll take what I can get.
Since it was a lot of money, we decided to put the four hundred gold coins Alena had brought in my magic bag.
Everyone seemed somewhat tired today, so we decided to start our adventuring activities in earnest tomorrow.
I think it would be better if we all go together for our first request, and once we get used to it, we can split up and complete the requests, which will help us rise up the ranks that much faster.
For now, I have set myself the goal of becoming an S-rank adventurer.
I’ll take a good rest today and get into it tomorrow. ……
