Will I End Up As a Hero or a Demon King - Chapter 24
However, the executive director always did not smile, only in his eyes. He had a profound look in his eyes…as if he were trying to hide his feelings and the atmosphere he was showing.
A person you feel scared of only when you make eye contact with him.
I feel this from Jagov-san, who is in front of me right now.
(If it is said that he is like this from the beginning, then that’s all… but what? Am I being suspected of something?)
I feel that if I am wary of him, he will know it, so I continue the conversation naturally.
“I’m certainly not from this country, but…?”
[Different Language Understanding] can be spoken without skill, as long as one has a minimum understanding of the country of origin, i.e., the language one is familiar with.
This has already been proven with Potta-kun.
Just from the conversation we just had, even if I were from this country, we could still have a conversation…
Then how did he know I’m not from this country?
Was it the color of your skin or the way you look?
“You have a questioning look on your face… it’s simple. I saw the movement of your mouth. The words that came to me did not match the language of this country.”
“I see…so that’s how you tell them apart.”
“And what’s interesting is that the mouth movements didn’t match any of the languages I knew. I thought I understood most of them, but… it seems like I still have a lot to learn.”
“I was just trying to be careful not to use too many small words, so don’t be so hard on me. So, there are two reasons why I asked you to come this time. The first is this.”
With that, he pulled out a leather bag from a drawer on the table.
When he put it down, I heard a metallic jingling sound.
This, this can’t be…
“It’s from the mayor of this town, and although it’s not much, it’s a reward for rescuing the three of you.”
I knew it!
I’m thankful for the unexpected extra income…I may be able to change my clothes and shoes to the locals’ specs soon with this.
“I’m glad you were pleased. This time, three of them belong to the Hunter Guild. Normally, the guild should have provided a reward for the emergency request, but…to my surprise, the rescuer was not a member of the guild. So, I got into a dispute with the mayor over whether to pay the reward for rescuing the residents or for rescuing the guild members. Thank God, Loki is not a guild member yet.”
“I see…so you have heard about that from Zink-kun and the others?”
“Yeah, pretty much…I heard that Loki is trying to become a hunter, was I wrong?”
“No, I don’t know what else I could do… I think hunting demons is the most suitable job for me.”
“I see. Thanks to Loki, the guild can avoid this burden. I’ll let them know that we’ll at least cover the cost of registration and training.”
“Thank you very much. Hmmm… Wait, training course?”
“After registering as a guild member, I will give you an overview of the Hunter Guild…in short, the structure of the guild, including requests, rewards, guild rules, and so on. You are required to attend a half-day training session to explain the guild’s structure, including requests, rewards, guild rules, and so on. As soon as you complete the course, you will be able to accept requests.”
