T/N : Sorry for the late update, I was sick and tired for a few days ago. I really appreciate if you leave some comment on the NovelUpdates, thak you.
Chapter 4-18. Successfully Passed?
“Hey, you, you’re finally awake.”
The guildmaster didn’t show up, so I had to stay here until these guys woke up.
I thought too much about what to do with them, and thank goodness they are waking up.
“Drink the potion right there.”
“Oh, thank you very much. ……”
The man drank the potion without hesitation, took a big breath, and then moved his body in various positions to check if there was anything wrong with his body.
Two more would wake up later, but, well, there was no need to force them to wake up.
“So, what am I supposed to do?”
“Eh, is the guildmaster here?”
“He didn’t show up. I mean, what was the plan?”
After that, he told me many things about this promotion exam.
At first, it seemed that these three were excellent at stealth, and that the guildmaster had sent them to me as advisors because of their abilities.
Apparently, the guild master had seen the commotion I had caused at that time, and wanted to see how good I really was, so he wanted me to take the promotion exam so that I could skip the E+ rank and move up to the D rank.
I thought it was a very annoying reason for them to make me take the test, but if it would raise my rank, I guess it was all right.
The three of them were the pitiful three who were bought off only for the guildmaster’s interest.
I think they should be angry, but the guildmaster has not shown up at all.
I would like to give him a shot myself, but I’ll just have to settle for getting the other three members into the D-rank.
“Or rather, ……, how did you see us……?”
“Isn’t it common sense not to carelessly tell people your skills?”
“That’s true, but …… I am genuinely concerned about it. It may have a great deal to do with our future activities. ……”
Since they say they are good at concealment, it would be meaningless if they are seen or their presence is perceived.
In that respect, you can say that he is a studious person …….
However, this is the skill that I use the most among all the skills that I possess.
I cannot just give an overview of my most important skills.
“If you say so……. But, you know, it’s a blessing in disguise to think that there might be opponents like that out there.”
“You’re optimistic. You, What’s your name?”
“My name is Bid Lantom, captain of the Shadow Eye, a covert unit. The woman sleeping over there is Tiara, and the man is Kreis.”
“I’m Ouren. I am currently an E rank adventurer and belong to a party called the Spirit Emperor (Reitei).”
You are the captain, huh?
No wonder he is so easy to talk to.
However…… Shadow Eye….. it’s a bit of a cri- strange name, but I guess people in this world love it………
“Are you really an E-rank adventurer, Ouren-san? It was the first time for me to be caught in sight and knocked out.”
“Ha-ha-ha, it was a good experience, wasn’t it?”
“Not at all……”
“But I couldn’t detect any presence. And these two as well. Although I can’t see you guys, I always know where you are.”
“That’s a tricky skill …… and I’d really like to know what the hell it is, but …… let’ s give it up.”
If only I had taught him this much, he would have something to countermeasure again.
Well, my haze manipulation can see to a super wide area, so it may be of hardly any use.
Yet, the guildmaster really isn’t coming.
What am I supposed to do?
Where is the guildmaster?
Normally he would be in this building, but …… I hate to say that I’ve never seen him in person, so I can’t look for him even if I wanted to.
I wonder if these guys know?
“Hey Bid. Where’s the guildmaster? I mean, what’s he like?”
“The guildmaster is a female guildmaster, probably more powerful than any of the adventurers who go to this guild. She’s usually in the office upstairs …….”
“Okay, show me the way.”
Bid said it was fine to leave them alone, so I decided to leave them be and had them taken upstairs to the office where they work.
It was a normal door, not so different from other doors.
Bid knocked on the door without hesitation.
There was people inside, like normal.
But I couldn’t tell from the voice alone that this person was the guildmaster, so I looked at Bid and asked him if I was right about the guy, and he nodded slowly.
Me and Bid slowly opened that door and entered the room.
There was a desk surrounded by numerous papers, and a woman was working at the desk with a pen over one ear and another pen in her right hand.
The woman, who was neither young nor old, was probably in her early thirties.
I was a little surprised that she was a guild master at such a young age, but then again, Yurie and Rose are also S-ranked.
Age probably has nothing to do with it.
“Welcome back, Bid. How was it?”
“…… Huh? Um, eh?”
Bid was puzzled by the guildmaster’s unexpected response.
From her tone of voice, it sounded as if she had no intention of coming to the venue.
The guildmaster was sorting through her papers without looking at him.
She really doesn’t seem to be interested.
“He wasn’t that strong, was he? Although I skipped the ranks because I was a little curious about it, …… it suddenly became a hassle. Well, I’m sure that Bid and his team could have handled that well, and I don’t think I need to go there.”
“Ah, no, umm…”
Bid looked at me and I probably have a big streak of vein on my forehead.
Who is this bastard ……? What’s with this guy?
Is she really the guildmaster?
“Look here, little shit.”
“My, how some people use such bold language towards me. Do you know who I am? Are you really an adventurer?”
The other side is trying to stir things up, but I don’t care at all about the hierarchical relationships in this world.
Since I am not human, I don’t have to follow their lead.
However, this guy is still not looking at my documents, as if she has no interest in me.
It seems that she is shamelessly taking advantage of me.
“Uhmm, Maria, Guildmaster! I must tell you, you are to blame for this one!”
“Excuse me, what…..?”
Finally, her eyes looked at me.
At that moment, the guildmaster’s face turned blue.
If the guildmaster knew who I was, that meant she must have seen me at least once, and she was the one who had once taken an interest in me.
I would not be able to forget that glaring figure so quickly and easily.
In the face of this person, she said that I was not strong enough, that I was a pain in the ass, and so on.
It seems that she understood what she had done.
“You… are the guild master, right?”
“Ehh? Eh!? Bid!? Why are you!?”
“I’m sorry! We, Shadow Eye, couldn’t even get a hold of this Ouren-san!”
“Uh, you’re lying, aren’t you?”
“Otherwise I won’t be here.”
I know she trusted Shadow Eye too much, but I actually beat them, and if anything, their covert skills are meaningless to me.
An enemy whose advantages have been reduced is no threat to me.
Well, what should I do with this guy ……?
I don’t know if it’s because of the guildmaster position or what, but I don’t see any indication that she’s going to apologize.
“All right, guildmaster. You let me take the promotion test out of curiosity, and then I took them by surprise without knowing anything about it, and after I beat them up, I helped them recover, and now the main perpetrator is sitting in this room doing her paperwork in a cozy office. No announcement of exam results, no attempts to see Bid and the others. THE F*CK YOU WANT!? HHAA!?”
Bid did nothing wrong, but he seemed a little intimidated by the volley of curses I was putting out.
However, the guildmaster, as one should say, was not afraid to confront me.
“Ha-ha-ha. Well, …… I’m sorry!”
“I’mma kick your ass, b*tch!”
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry! You passed! You are now a certified D- rank adventurer!”
“You’ll make my whole party D-rated for your nuisance.”
“That’s fine, but I’m going to have to give them a practical test, okay? I can’t raise them unless they’re good enough.”
“That’s fine then.”
Well, this will be necessary, so I will at least follow this around.
Because I’m sure those three guys can clear it up as usual.
Still,…… this guy is the strongest adventurer in the country,……?
She doesn’t look like it at all, but how strong …… is she?
She’s quite slender, and the weapon standing in the corner of the room is a long, thin sword like a rapier.
If the sword is something light, is she good at fast attacks?
Well, there’s no point in prying in these matters.
“That’s good, good I said. You’re strong – I didn’t …… know that. ……”
“You seem weak to me.”
“That’s rude. I’m the strongest person in the country, you know?”
“What’s with that reaction……”
She still doesn’t look strong by any means.
Come to think of it, I remember some time ago, Uchikage said …….
You can tell how good an opponent is by the way they walks. …… Is this for real?
I haven’t seen her walk much, so I can’t say for sure yet. ……
Well, I guess you can never be too careful.
“So? What am I supposed to do after this?”
“You can take this document downstairs and go to the receptionist’s office. Then you’ll be promoted to D-rank. You can bring your friends tomorrow.”
On the document handed to me, it was written in large letters that I had passed the exam.
I put it away in my pocket for the time being, thinking that it was a very messy certificate of acceptance.
Well, I have no more business here, so I’m going to leave quickly.
I have other places to go today.
“Well, I’ll leave you to it. Let’s see. ……”
“Maria. Maria Folden.”
“I’m Ouren. Bid, good luck with this kind of guildmaster, do your best.”
“What do you mean by that!? Bid, don’t laugh at that!”
I left the room with a loud and laughing voice, thinking that I never want to deal with this guy again.
