I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 155
Chapter 4-1. First Request
It was dawn and the sun was high in the sky, but it was still morning.
People were already coming and going at a dizzying pace, and it was rather difficult to walk toward their destination through the crowd.
Wading through the crowd, there were four people heading toward the Adventurers’ Guild.
One was walking at the front, dressed in a white kimono.
He was carrying a rather long weapon on his hip, which made it somewhat inconvenient for him to walk through the crowd, and four people were us.
“Maybe it’s better to put it away at a time like this. ……”
However, if I put it away now, it would stand out in some way, and as long as they were following behind me, I wanted to refrain from stopping.
I looked behind me to see if the three people behind me were following me.
Then I spot a short girl at my feet.
She was wearing light but well-prepared gear, with two small daggers and a sword at her waist.
Imitating me, she holds a small dagger and a dismantling knife at her left hip.
Alena was following me, holding the hem of my robe to prevent me from separating from her.
This way, I wouldn’t have to worry about being separated from her.
At the back of her was Reizen, who was wearing equipment that emphasized …… appearance and seemed to have almost completely discarded defensive capabilities.
Reizen doesn’t seem to notice when he bumps shoulders with someone, and he walks with ease.
His super-armor seems to activate wherever he goes.
It can be extremely inconvenient.
But if he has that super armor, you might be wondering why he doesn’t walk in the front. …… That would mean bumping into everyone walking by and possibly starting a fight, so It’s better for me to walk in front of them to avoid any trouble.
But Uchikage, who was walking behind Reizen, seemed to be very content to walk.
He was barely able to keep people from coming to where he was walking because Reizen was pushing people away from him.
But even if this were not the case, it would be hard to find anyone who would have the guts to try to bump into the sharply equipped, deep-purple Uchikage.
Walking in this condition, we finally arrived at our destination.
We found the guild in the same way as the one we had seen in the Kingdom of Garott, and we were able to find it immediately.
Once inside, the eyes of all the adventurers turned toward us to see who had entered, but they soon lost interest, returning their attention to their desks or enjoying conversation with the people they were talking to.
“I guess the inside isn’t too different from the ones in the Kingdom of Garott.”
“It’s the same no matter where you go. Shall we check out the request first?”
“I suppose so.”
The purpose of this time is to sell the medicinal herbs we collected on the way from the Kingdom of Garott to the Kingdom of Salettana.
If there is a request for the herbs, I would like to accept it and accomplish the request immediately.
I’m sure that my rank will go up, and more importantly, my magic bag is starting to get a little bulky, so I want to sell it as soon as possible to free up some space.
Incidentally, I also collected poisonous plants.
I had collected the poisonous plants in small portions because they can be used as detoxifiers, and if they are used correctly, they can be used to help them.
The poisonous herbs are not that strong, so there are some compounders and potion makers who need them.
So, the requests we were looking for this time were for the delivery of Hipo Grass (a medicinal herb) and Poz Grass (a poisonous herb).
We all approached the F-rank board and the E-rank board to confirm the details of the request.
“Oh, is all this a request for delivery of medicinal herbs?”
“Looks like it ……. ……
The delivery requests for medicinal herbs were pasted on the F-rank board, where delivery requests for Hipo Grass were pasted in sheets.
In some places, there were dozens of sheets of paper attached to the board, and it seemed as if there was an urgent need for Hipo herb.
Is there a shortage of the heal potion in this country right now?
“Is this really common? Uchikage, what do you think?”
“Ah …… there are two things I can think of. One is if there is simply a lack of Hipo Grass. The other is if the adventurers are ignoring the request. In this case, it could be connected to the former.”
If there is a lack of Hipo grass mentioned in the former, it can’t be helped, but if adventurers are not taking up this request, this situation is probably more serious than it seems.
As far as I see the adventurers here, I can see their equipment in a reasonably low rank range, so there must be F-rank adventurers as well as E-rank adventurers.
From my point of view, I think that the new adventurers are a very energetic bunch.
Therefore, they are likely to receive many requests to take down monsters.
I guess the question is, who would come all the way here to accept such requests for gathering and running in the town?
In fact, it’s very important, but if you go up to ……E- rank, With the current guild policy of accepting requests for harvesting, there may not be many low-ranked adventurers who bother to take requests for harvesting.
“Alena got me enough Hipo grass to …… clear half of this commission board I guess.”
“Eh. You must have taken a lot of it. ……
“Well, We won’t know until we see it”
I decided to tear off a few sheets and watch its contents for the time being.
【 Delivering Ten Strands of Hipo Grass】
Due date: Indefinite
Reward：2 silver coins
【 Delivering Five Strands of Hipo Grass】
Due date : Indefinite
Client : Potion store
Reward : 1 silver coins
【 Massive Delivery of Hipo Grass】
Due date : Indefinite
Client : Medical Center
Reward : depends on the amount of delivery
Although most of the requests were similar to this, there seemed to be a certain amount of need for them, and the rewards were reasonably high.
Well, if we accept as many of these requests as we can, our ranks should rise quickly.
I don’t know how many requests it takes to get promoted, but if we accomplish as much as we can here, we should be able to get at least one higher rank.
I decided to choose only the items with a small number of deliveries from among the requests and take them as I saw fit.
“Me and Alena are going to go take care of these requests. Can Uchikage and Reizen go take care of anything else you think you can take on?”
” I understand! What should we do?”
“Requests for hunting come from the E ranks, and you can take them when you reach E- rank.”
“Then let’s take a look at the requests for E- and E ranks for the time being.”
And with that, Reizen went and took Uchikage to the board next to us.
After looking over that, me and Alena decided to head to the reception desk for the F to E rank section.
I don’t know if it was Alena’s presence or whether I stood out, but I felt a little bit of stares, but I didn’t mind and proceeded to the reception desk and approached the receptionist there.
“Is this where the F-rank receptionist is?”
“Eh, F you say……?”
“Is that right?”
I quickly convinced the receptionist by showing her my guild card.
Perhaps she didn’t expect someone like me to come to the receptionist with an F rank level.
But alas, I have not received a single request since I registered, so I remain in the F rank.
I’m sorry, Ms. Receptionist. This is my first request.
“It’ s confirmed.”
“Then I’d like to accept this entire request.”
I put the bundle of the request for delivery of Hipo Grass on the counter with a slam.
According to my estimation, there should be enough Hipo grass in the magic bag to fulfill all the delivery requests I have brought with me.
If there is any left over, it can be sold somewhere or used up quickly if I accept the request again.
But the receptionist looked at the bundle of papers and sighed a little in disappointment.
” Um, …… don’t get too greedy. These are all indefinite delivery deadlines, but that doesn’t mean you can have a stack of paper requests indefinitely. Unless you can accomplish it right here and now. ……”
“Ah, well, this should do it then.”
I reach into my storage bag and pull out one large bag.
I proceeded to turn its contents over and toss a large quantity of Hipo grass onto the desk at the counter.
“Let’s see, this request is for five Hipo grass. Well, I’ll round up each one of these for delivery with this request form, and you take care of the rest. Here are six, here are five. Here are three. ……”
“Alena will help.”
“Ah then, can you go find me the request for the delivery of the Poz grass? We have a lot of that on hand too.”
Alena said that and ran to the F-rank board again.
After watching her, I checked the number of delivery requests again, rounded up that amount on the request form, and presented it to the receptionist.
The receptionist was quite puzzled and was in a great hurry to process the delivery request at the moment.
She seemed to have been able to do it without any help from other employees who came to help her, but it still looked like she was having a hard time.
In total, we accomplished twenty-eight requests, but there was still a spare amount of Hipo Grass.
I wondered what to do about this, but then I remembered that there was a request form in which the medical center would change the reward depending on the amount, so I told the receptionist to deliver the rest to the medical center, and they would take care of the rest.
“Okay, that’s it.”
“Hawawa ……, t-thank you very much …….”
“Err, why do you look like you’re about to cry?”
“The truth is,…… young adventurers have recently risen in rank and are no longer accepting these types of gathering requests,……. However, the place where the request is made will always be urging you to wait a little longer, and when you ask the adventurer to do so, they will always reject the request,……. Thank goodness. ……”
I know how hard it is for guild employees.
Even just a few of them have healing skills, and I suppose it is no exaggeration to say that in this world, a cure can mean the difference between life and death.
This is …… something we should probably …… actively collect when we go away somewhere again.
As long as it’s in the form of a sale, it won’t be a problem, although it won’t be achievable as a request if the rank goes up too high.
Even if our ranks rise and we are able to receive a request to take down a monster, we may still be able to receive a request to harvest something to check out the terrain before we do so.
“I didn’t expect you to be that delighted ….. I’ll bring you more if I find any in the future.”
“Thank you very much.”
“Excuse me from next desk. This will be the reward money this time, four silver coins and three silver coins. Please accept them.”
I delivered all this for less than four silver coins, or ……. No wonder adventurers don’t want to take on this task.
But is this really reasonable? It is true that you only need a few copper coins to buy a meal.
But if you want to stay at an inn, you can’t say such a thing.
It is true that there are some inns where you can stay one night with only silver coins, but …… that should not be enough.
The amount of money given to adventurers for gathering medicinal herbs is too small, don’t you think so?
“Hey, I wonder why the delivery requests of Hipo Grass are so cheap?”
Not only the receptionist behind the counter, but also the staff member who had just handed me my reward choked on their words.
Perhaps they knew the cause of the problem, but they seemed very reluctant to say anything.
What was told from there was absolutely outrageous.
