Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 283
It was decided that the compensation for the two of them would be discussed at a later date, including the next sessions.
Of course, I had to remind them not to make unreasonable demands based on their feet and to use common sense.
I also reminded them that they should not stay up all night, but should take breaks and get some sleep.
Staying up all night or working recklessly is your skin’s worst enemy.
……I’m probably going to be cured of that, too……
So this time I’ll have them finish it in about three days.
I couldn’t take recordings from the other merchants for the time being, but I had set up an additional recording device for the ringleader, the Enova Chamber of Commerce.
…There are dozens of recorders scattered all over…….
Well, the total cost isn’t even 300,000, even including the external microphone.
Aren’t prices in Japan too cheap? I always think about it when I go to the 100-yen store…….
But I’m not going to buy any more recorders, as you can imagine.
A woman with dozens of micro-recorders at hand, thinking about it gives me the creeps……
Then, on the third floor of General Store Mitsuha, I played several recording devices at the same time for confirmation.
No, I don’t have to listen to the whole thing, I can just skip over the irrelevant parts or fast-forward using the control buttons.
There it is!
He’s on a roll, he’s talking a lot, he’s making fun of the Larushia trade, he’s talking about his plan to get the cargo from the Viscount Yamano’s estate, he’s talking about the payment to the nobility…….
The criminals are pretty talkative, aren’t they…….
Well, that’s understandable. Unlike modern Earth, this world doesn’t have any technology for eavesdropping or recording.
The best they could do was to hide under the floor, in the ceiling, or in the closet.
……Also, a person who was at the scene secretly informed the enemy.
That’s why you’ll be vulnerable when you’re talking in your secured room with <the one who will never betray you>. If you are in a place where you feel safe, where you know the walls are thick and there is no place for people to hide, you can rest assured…….
In addition to normal bugs and recorders, there are even laser microphones that shine lasers on the windows of buildings and convert the flickering reflected light into sound to intercept conversations in the room.
No conversations, no documents, no data, no files, no schemes.
That’s the way it is on modern Earth……
However, as expected, even in this world, no one is stupid enough to go to the trouble of creating evidence such as a plan, pledge, or a series of letters of martial law for an evil scheme.
If you don’t create such a thing in the first place, if you’re still worried about unity and prevention of betrayal, then you’re in the clear.
So, while the contents of the hidden safe may be useful in uncovering other forms of fraud, there is no physical evidence other than the recorded data in this case.
And there is no way I can present a recording device as evidence.
In any case, they will be claimed to be fake or made by the devil, or the guards will inadvertently・・・・・・・ lose them or smash them against something and break them.
We can’t get the perpetrators ・・・・ we don’t have contacts, we don’t have the connections, we don’t have allies, we don’t have the proper government officials.
It’s not like the owner of the merchant association met with them in person or directly gave instructions. And if he said, <I don’t know, it’s a false accusation>, or <Someone must have used our name to trick you>, then that’s it.
And for some reason, the perpetrators will escape from prison or commit suicide.
So I don’t expect anything from the security organizations in that country.
The only people I could trust and rely on were myself, Larushia, and the others in the <International Network of Women Business Owners> that we had created.
Let’s return the same unreasonable violence to those who are unreasonably violent toward those who are earnestly trying their best.
Take your time to examine the enemy’s connections and clean everything from the root to the tip.
Let them know what they have been involved in, what they have done, and what they have made enemies of, so that they may fully regret it……
Yes, there is no need for you to be sorry. No matter how much you reflect on it, you will never have the chance to apply that lesson again.
Just regret what you’ve done.
[I’m gonna leave you barely alive……] Mitsuha
I muttered to myself.
<A good man can still achieve eternal life, but not a bad man.>
Rather than misinterpreting the words as, <Even a bad person can pass away, so of course, a good person as well>, Mitsuha correctly interpreted them as, <Even a good person can pass away, so of course, a bad person who has no other way of salvation but to put his trust in Buddha can pass away>.
……Like horribly misunderstanding the meaning of the word 『往生』”Ojo” which is the good meaning of <to be reborn in the Pure Land of Ultimate Bliss>, into an image of a yakuza holding a gun to his opponent’s head and saying, 『往生せいや～！！』”Ojo seiya~!!” <You’re dead!!> in a terrible manner……
[Oneesama, I’m done! Here, this is the <recording> and the info note.] Sabine
[Ah, good job.] Mitsuha
Sabine-chan came in on the mountain bike she had ‘taken’ from me earlier.
I’ve already collected Colette’s portion from the territorial mansion.
It’s a process of listening to the audio recordings, and you need to concentrate your nerves to check multiple items at the same time, so there’s no way you can do it together in the same place. That’s why I’m here at the General StoreMitsuha. Colette-chan is in my office at the territorial mansion. Sabine-chan worked in her room in the royal palace, keeping the others out of the room.
If she says, <This is an important job that Mitsuha asked me to do, not as Viscount Yamano, but as the Hime Miko of Thunder>, no one will interfere.
[I’m looking forward to seeing what my reward will be……] Sabine
[I, I know, of course. Just think of something, okay?] Mitsuha
[Roger that!] Sabine
Sabine-chan smirks, she’s in her devilish mode.
Ah, I have a bad feeling about this…
Well, anyway, for now, I need to check the parts that they both picked up.
Sabine seems to know that I’m serious about my work now, and how I feel about it, so she doesn’t pester me or beg me to watch DVDs or Blu-ray discs.
The General Store Mitsuha is still closed, so they know that I’m going to start working on it.
[I’m going home. Don’t stay up all night.] Sabine
Colette-chan was the first person I met in this world, and we saved each other’s lives, but Sabine-chan is probably the person who understands me the most.
Well, let’s get on with it and check out the recordings…….
Two days later, I received another set of recording devices and notes from Sabine-chan and Colette-chan, both of whom had confirmed the contents.
I had made up a correlation chart on my computer based on those data.
A line extending upward, downward, and sideways, centered on the Enova Chamber of Commerce.
On top, the upper echelons of the nobility and the guards.
At the bottom are small and medium-sized merchants, subcontractors, cargo handlers, gangs, thugs, and lower-ranked organizations.
Beside them are other merchants and business partners of the same rank.
And now, in my hand, I have several recording devices that I have just retrieved through transfer, which were installed at the headquarters of the guards……
We will now check its contents and finalize the correlation chart.
The correlations are color-coded according to the level, and the details of what they did are written out separately.
……What kind of level is it, you ask?
Of course, it’s the <guilt level>, or the <deserved retribution level>, or the <severity of a crime level>.
Who decides the severity of a crime?
Who’s judging it?
GW vacation is over!
The update is resumed! !! (^^) /
