I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 160
Taking care of sick people is tiring. Take care, everyone.
Chapter 4-6. Result Report and Investigation
When we returned to the Kingdom of Salettana, the sun had completely set.
We weren’t in the mountains that long, but …… we still seemed to have a road problem.
I had to meet up with Uchikage to accomplish our request, so I went to the place where we were supposed to meet up, and it seemed that Uchikage was already waiting for us.
“Hey, Uchikage! We’re back!”
Uchikage was wearing something like a handbag over his shoulder, in which he told me that the redogpop he had collected was in it.
It seems that he was able to collect it safely.
But what kind of mushroom is …… redogpop?
To be honest, I am very curious about it, so I asked him to show me.
The mushrooms that Uchikage showed us made both me and Reizen yell out at the same time.
It was a very interesting mushroom.
It looked like an ordinary mushroom, and the fact that there were letters written on the cap was just as we had been informed.
However, that was not what we were interested in, but the meaning of the words on it.
[Don’t eat it!]
[I don’t taste good!]
[Five silver pieces for every five pieces.]
Of course we laugh at these things.
“These mushrooms are too silly……”
I thought to myself, “How can there be such assertive mushrooms?” but I was also a little moved that these guys are struggling to stay alive.
But do they think they can get away with just writing?
I don’t think the world of nature is that naive. …… How did these mushrooms evolve in such a way?
Well, putting that aside, I’m going to go report the completion of the request to the guild as soon as possible, since I read that the freshness of the hitro fruit is very important.
In addition, I need to get Uchikage and Reizen to raise their ranks to the same rank as me.
When I explained this to them, Reizen was happy, but Uchikage was very surprised.
“Eh! How many requests did you accomplish with just the hipo grass!”
“How many was it ……, about twenty-five?
“Ouren, it was twenty-eight.”
“That’s a lot ……. That means we might be promoted to E+ in just a little while.”
It seems to me that roughly…… ten requests is needed for a rank promotion.
We were told that there was an exam for promotion from D rank, and we should also ask about the details.
We headed to the Adventurers’ Guild and, puzzled by the unusual increase in the number of people since our previous visit at lunchtime, headed for the low-rank counter to report the completion of our request.
We had to wait for our turn, but the wait was not that long since there were three employees at each counter.
I put the request sheets and the items I collected on the counter, along with the guild cards of the four of us.
“Then, please take care of this.”
“OK, I’ve got it. …………Yes, I have confirmed it. Then the reward will be 15 pieces of silver coins.”
“Also, make sure these two have the same rank as me. They are my party members.”
“I understand. Please wait a moment for confirmation.”
The guild official was very efficient in getting our reward money and our ranks up.
After receiving the reward money, I returned the guild cards to everyone and checked today’s rewards.
The money I got for the delivery of Hipo grass was four silver coins and three silver coins.
The money I received from the purchase of the Poz grass was 11 silver coins.
The reward money obtained from this request is 15 silver coins…… totaling 30 silver coins and 4 silver coins, so 3 gold coins and 4 silver coins will be today’s profit.
Isn’t this a decent amount ?
Considering the time and effort involved, it is a little disconcerting that the most efficient way to do this was to sell the Poz grass. ……
And the hipo grass is not sold in the guild.
This is used to go around to other pharmacies to check the market price.
” Ah, let’s see. Um, what do you do for a promotion exam?”
“Yes. In the promotion examination, you will have a mock battle with the personnel prepared by the guild. If you are capable, you may be promoted to a higher rank.”
“I see. …… Maybe I need to train somewhere.”
Mock battle. ……. I’ll have to see how far I can go.
Alena has never been in a battle against a human being before, so she needs to get some experience somewhere.
“It sounds like there’s nothing to worry……”
Not to mention Uchikage, or even Reizen for that matter.
And since Alena has the ability to control gravity, it seems unlikely that she will be defeated easily.
When I think about it ……, it is me who has to do something about it the most in this case, isn’t it?
“Ouren! I’m hungry!”
” Yeah, that’s right. Do you want to go somewhere, aniki? It’s our first commission, so let’s go have a party to celebrate it!”
“Mm …… that’s a good idea. Alena has earned some money with her…….. great negotiating skills, so let’s go eat somewhere for today.”
“Then how about asking Rose and Yurie for a good place to eat?”
“Oh, that’s a good idea. Alright, let’s go.”
Now that the discussion is over, we decide to return to the inn for the time being.”
By the way, I had a thought of something, so I tore off a request form from the A-rank board and put it in my pocket.
I hope there is nothing to worry about, but …… just in case.
I failed to tell them about the big heal slime, but I …… took it down, so everything is fine, right ……?
When I returned to the inn, I found that Rose and Yurie had already returned and were discussing something in the lobby.
“Rose is so diligent. We’ve got enough money to have a little fun, and you’re taking another request.”
“Well, a little bit.”
Sorry to interrupt their conversation, but I’m going to have to ask them to join us for a minute.
As we all approached them, they seemed to notice our presence and Rose waved to us.
” Good work. How was it?”
” It was okay, I guess. I just wanted to ask you both if you know of any good places to go for a drink. It was our first payment, and I thought we’d go out to eat somewhere nice to celebrate this occasion.”
“Ahh, I see. There is a bar called Haneyume (EN: Resting Feather) straight down the street over there. I recommend it.”
“They have great food there, don’t they? Shall we go there too?”
Apparently, they haven’t had dinner yet either, and they are willing to go with us.
I don’t mind that at all, but Reizen is not happy about it.
I can sort of understand why, but I want to ask Rose and Yurie something before we go …….
“Did you both complete any requests today?”
“I need to do something, so I did another request today.”
“And I didn’t. I just took the day off because I’d already have some money.”
“Huh? What do you mean, why?”
So, the question is, why is Yurie enjoying a holiday graciously, although indirectly, doing nothing with the help of others?
“All right, Rose, come with us. I’ll buy you a drink.”
“Why? How about me?”
“Why not? What kind of a mindset is it that you are enjoying your holiday with the money you got from the Red Boar we hunted and completed the commission with?”
“Ha-ha-ha-ha! How shameless!”
“You wanna settle this you dipshit?!”
“Alright, how about you go and do this?”
Saying so, I pushed Yurie a request that I had just ripped off the A-rank board.
The content of the request is to defeat the shadow wolf.
Shadow wolves are wolves that lurk in the shadows and are extremely troublesome monsters that become invisible at night.
It is nocturnal and difficult to spot, so even high-ranked adventurers can be killed by this dangerous creature.
And since they are located in the vicinity of the Kingdom of Salettana, it’s a real problem.
I tore off a piece of the request and brought it with me, thinking that perhaps these two had not done a request.
Of course, if they had completed some request, I would have returned it to its original location.
“There is a saying in my country, [If you don’t work, you don’t eat]. Do it, or I’ll take away the money you got for the job I did for you.”
“Are you kidding me?!”
“Just go then. Come on.”
“Yurie. It’s your fault this time. Have fun.”
“Go and do it properly. If you don’t do it, I”ll find out soon. I’ll buy you dinner when you come back.”
“Yurie looked very frustrated, but she quickly turned on her heel and left the inn.”
It was a little awkward for her to enjoy their time off with money they didn’t earn on her own.
But I’m going to keep my promise. If she did her job properly, I would treat her to a proper meal.
Otherwise, I would feel sorry for her.
I had just made the acquaintance of an S-rank adventurer, and it would be bad for us to become hostile because of something like this.
“When will she be back?”
“Well, if it’s Yurie, she will be back by the time the food is on the table.”
“Quite impressive, isn’t it? I thought Yurie would have refused to accept my offer.”
“Despite her appearance, she’s a lonely person. Because of her personality, she doesn’t have many friends.”
Muttering to myself that there were unexpectedly cute, I asked Rose to show me around the place.
The place we were taken to seemed to be quite busy, but we didn’t have to wait long to get in.
Since it was the first time for me to have a proper meal at such a place, I was a little worried about what to do, but I was able to order right away thanks to Rose, who has been going here for a while.
The ordering process seemed to be almost the same as in a restaurant in my previous life.
The only menu is the one hanging on the wall.
When the food we ordered arrived at the table and we were about to eat it, we were really surprised to see Yurie return, like what Rose said, but now everyone was able to eat together.
The more people at the table, the merrier the meal was.
We decided not to drink this time since Alena was with us, and we started to eat the food that had been laid out for us.
