I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 296
Chapter 7-16. Interpreter
The next day, I, Houen, and Alena were at the Adventurers’ Guild.
We already secured a request to take down Vadit, so all we had to do was wait for that guy to show up. ……
It was hard to believe that she would come.
But I expected this.
I guess she is taking her time to arrange things at her side.
“How was it yesterday, Houen?”
“The conversation itself went without a hitch, but for some reason, we had to take on a request together. Now I am waiting for that person.”
As Alena knows us, she understands most of what we did yesterday.
We also talked about Lize being a monster like us, but since it was not the first time she had seen a monster, she was not surprised at all.
But this time, Houen will not be accompanying us.
This meant that there would be no interpreter, so Alena would have to constantly watch us and act accordingly.
It might be okay for her to go with us, but it would be undignified if she were to be used as a sort of rebuke, so we are really asking her to stay at home today.
Thus, I decided to have Houen try to gather as much information as possible.
I asked him to gather as much information as possible about the devil and the previous generation of the White Snake.
There should be no problem with this lineup for the time being.
As we waited, a woman walked in a straight line toward us.
I checked to see who it was, and found that she had long blue hair and was dressed in loose-fitting white clothing.
Although she was obviously not dressed for battle, which made her a bit of a stranger in this adventurers’ guild, there was something about her that gave off the aura of a strong figure.
There was something sharp and strong in her gentle expression.
“I’m sorry I’m late.”
No, the heck with you casually walking with human form!!!
However, the most important thing to remember is that there is no need to worry about Alena’s communication with me if this is the case.
If she was going to come in human form, why didn’t she just say so? ……
“Is this that surprising?”
“Nah, ney ney ney ney, of course anyone would be surprised.”
“Houen, who is this Oba-chan*?” (Oba-s(ch)an = auntie)
“O- oba- chan? It’s Onee-san, right? I am ‘Onee-chan’ right?” (Onee/Anee/Nee-san/chan= Older/big sister)
“Oh, I’m sorry.”
Such a sharp attack of innocence.
“Very well. I’m Lize. And you are?”
“I’m Alena. Uhmm, Lize-san, you’re the same as Houen and Ouren, aren’t you?”
“Oh? You know that?”
[Alena is very special.]
Seriously, she’s special …… or rather unique.
Anyway, now that we have the right number of people, it’s time for us to leave. ……
Speaking of which, how high is Lize’s adventurer rank?
“I don’t have one.”
“That’s why I’m going to follow you guys on my own.”
Oh, that’s how it is. ……
I guess there’s nothing wrong with that, right?
At any rate, Lize is regarded as an ordinary person, but she is said to have said to the final evolution destination, and her competence would be extraordinary.
However, Houen has a bitter look on his face.
It seems that this is not a good thing to do, and he was wondering what to do about it.
“It’s not a good idea to talk about it here. Let’s just accept the request and get out of here for now.”
So, we accepted the request and went outside.
Alena accepted the request, so the reception itself was over without any problems.
As we went outside, we made sure that people around us could not hear our voices by talking in a low voice.
However, it was not my concern.
[What’s going on, Houen?]
“No, it is not a good idea for an adventurer to take an ordinary person around with them to accept a request.”
“I’m strong, you don’t need to worry about it.”
“That is not the problem. There is no problem with cooperation between parties. The only problem is that you don’t get a reward for doing so, and if members outside of your party cooperate with each other in taking down the request, there will be a problem with promoting your rank.”
Oh, …… that’s the reason.
In other words, let’s say there is a C-rank task that is difficult to defeat with a party of three, and the four of them beat it.
If they do, they will be rewarded and it will be a stepping stone to rank promotion, but a B-rank task is absolutely impossible for the three of them to do.
Even if they were lucky enough to pass the promotion test, all that awaited them would be extremely dangerous work.
Fulfilling a request with an unregistered collaborator is a very easy way to accomplish a request, but when you look ahead to the future, there are holes all over the place.
I guess that is what Houen is concerned about.
Not to mention that if they are caught, they can be fined for it, etc., they say.
It would be disgraceful.
“I’ve heard that adventurers are …… a bit more laid-back than that. Aren’t they supposed to be more easygoing?”
“Death is always involved. They are very strict about these things.”
“I understand. Then we’ll go a different way.”
“Huh? Hey, wait! Where are you going?!”
She ran away with great speed. ……
What’s happening now?
W-well, …… for now, what we’re going to do won’t change, so let’s head for the cave. ……
[Houen, please gather information.]
“….. Please don’t get your hopes up,……”
