I went through a few back alleys before finally arriving at the inn. I guess the bastards couldn’t catch me. They clearly weren’t much.
The bell jingled loudly as I opened the front door and went inside. This sound was now very familiar to me.
“Oh, you’re early today.”
Maris’ face popped out from under the counter.
“Yeah, I’m back. Got chased by a few adventurers on the way.”
“There are still people complaining about you? Really, such people are not fit to be called men!”
“Haha. Well, there are quite a few of them.”
“That’s quite disappointing though…”
We chatted idly for a while, until she handed me the room key.
“Ah, Asagi. It’ll be your second week today. What will you do?”
“Extend, of course.”
“Hahaha. Do you mean to just stay here and live with me?”
“I’d love to do just that, but I want to go out on a journey, once I have enough money…”
“Is that so. Well, I better give up then.”
She chuckled. I don’t know how I would ever be able to repay her. Not just her. Russell, and the Chief. I’ll throw Gardo and Ness in there as well.
After paying the amount for the extension, I then went back to my room, plopped on my bed and took out my status card.

“My level went up… And my AGI broke 200, huh… How high can it go? Though, I don’t know what the average even is.”
There was nothing to do but laugh at how unbalanced it all was, but I couldn’t complain about being fast. Being fast with everything was the trick to living.
I stashed the status card back in my pocket, grabbed a change of clothing and headed off to the public bathing area. The inn had its own baths. Which was great for me. I loved bathing. Taking an early morning bath after a long night of work was the best…
Just as I took off my clothes in the changing room, a few other guests at the inn came in. After a short greeting, I showered and then hopped into the tub.
I sigh without thinking. Who wouldn’t? You can’t help it. It’s like a phenomenon, I think.
After being warmed through, I quickly get out. I don’t take long baths.
Then it was just a matter of getting dressed, eating dinner and going to bed. I’ve started to really settle down here now, so I tried to spend a little time before bed to reflect on the day and think about my future plans.
Today’s goblin hunting had gone well. The guild house was quiet because of Gardo. If only he were always there. Things got annoying after that. There was a high likelihood that they would try something again outside of the guild house. I better be prepared.
