Otome Game no Heroine de Saikyou Survival [WN] - Chapter 160.3
A beautiful blade? No, this woman was not like that. She was a pretty “trap” that lured her prey, spreading a deadly poison the moment it was touched. The men in the guild were fooled by her loveliness and underestimated her, but Jesha, who was also a woman, saw firsthand how dangerous she was.
Her fighting ability was no less than that of Zilgan, who had been fighting in the front lines for decades. But more than that, Jesha felt “something” shining in her eyes, and understood that all the “gossip” she had heard so far was true.
She knew that she should not be enemies with this woman.
If Aria joined the fight against the earth dragon, the odds of winning would surely increase. But more than that, as a daughter of the Hogloss Trading Company, Jesha could not let anyone other than the dwarves take credit for the victory.
As for Jesha personally, as a fellow warrior woman, she sympathized with Aria’s easygoing attitude toward her, half acting as a [business partner], and just being herself. Despite this sympathy, the guardian of this desert town of Cutlass had to be a dwarf from the Hogloss Trading Company.
As Jesha of the Hogloss Trading Company, she would like her to only deliver Advanced Potion if possible, but as the guild leader, it seemed like a bad idea to waste that strength.
But at the same time, Jesha understood that Aria would not listen to the guild’s request anyway.
“Aria, you should protect what you want to protect.”
Jesha requested that I act on my own as an adventurer.
My priority was to ensure Elena’s safety. I was willing to fight the dragon if that was necessary, but I knew there was a flip side to Jesha’s words.
Kushim was killed by Rizan’s group, and at the same time the powerful Dark Elves disappeared. And now this demon Stampede….
It all started when I had a falling out with the Munza Group and a hole opened up in their protection. The general opinion in town was that the Rizan group found out about it and acted, but I believe that the Rizan group was after the opportunity from the beginning.
Jesha believed that something was going to happen in this town.
That father and son we met the other day told us to get out of this town as soon as possible.
I wondered if that was the case with the Stampede. But that would not be to the advantage of the Rizan group. Do they just want to destroy one of the four organizations? What if their goal was this town itself?
Perhaps the answer to that question was known to the missing Dark Elves.
I put my cloak back on and run to the watchtower of the base.
I did not notice it when I came here, but in the town, I could see merchants who had begun to close their stores as if they were fleeing, as if information about the monster Stampede was starting to reach them.
There was no sign of adventurers in town. They were probably on their way to deal with the monsters at the request of the Adventurers’ Guild. Was it the bloodlust peculiar to this town that so many residents with weapons were seen in the town?
On my way out of town, I stopped in my tracks, suddenly feeling a sense of discomfort.
As mere merchants, the Kirli Chamber of Commerce would not choose to fight for profit; the Hogloss Chamber of Commerce and the Munza Group would have to put up a force against the monster stampede.
But what were those guys in the corner of the town with their weapons…?
I approached them slowly.
They may have sensed something strange happening in the town and were trying to protect it in a way that I couldn’t understand. But even if they were residents of this town, they might not have the degree of skill that a low-rank adventurer would have… Where did they get those spears and swords from?
“…What are you doing here, huh?”
Cruzian, tanned and dark-skinned, intimidated me with a fierce look on his face.
There were five Cruzians and one man whose face was hidden by a hood. The hooded man was the slimmest, but he radiated the strongest “presence”.
As I approached them, I kept my weapon hidden and replied.
“Nothing…. It’s just that the Dark Elf over there… I was just wondering why a Dark Elf……. is here.”
At that moment, the hooded man emits a deadly intent, and the men all raise their weapons at the same time.
It seems like I hit the mark.
