Jack of all Trades – 69

The Hero Comes


Three weeks passed after we returned from the mines and made a report to the guild.

 

Daniela and I spent the time just repeating simpler quests and earning money.

I had caught up with Daniela for a moment in terms of rank. Even though we were on opposite ends of it. It didn’t last too long, as Rank B started from LV 71. She would soon reach even higher places. It had taken me awhile to get here, so I had to work hard so that gap didn’t widen again.

And perhaps it was because we had been underground for so long, but I got a new skilled called ‘Nighteyes.’

It was a lowkey skill that gave you slightly better vision in the dark. I’m sure it would come in handy again. Daniela didn’t get the skill, probably because she already had a unique skill, ‘Fresh Green Eye.’ Or so she said.

 

I had new weapons made for me with the fangs and claws of the assault kobold. The blacksmith that Bordow introduced to me was a pure blooded dwarf named Bennett.

 

“So you’re Silvergreen.”

“Yes, I’m Asagi. Nice to meet you.”

“You think you can ask me to make your weapons when you only just received your second name? Quite arrogant, huh? Ehh?”

“Err, the guild master suggested you to me. I’ll go elsewhere if you don’t like it.”

“Now, wait just a minute. You have something rare, don’t you?”

“Yeah, here it is.”

“Hmph…mmm, this…”

“Recognize it?”

“It seems that it was I who was arrogant…pardon me. I’ll accept the job!”

“Well then, I look forward to the results.”

 

Thankfully, he knew his craft well. It only took one look at the materials for him to understand what they were. And of course, he did not disappoint. I look down at the two swords hanging on my belt. There were no beautiful decorations. They were designed purely for functionality, unsheathing smoothly, with a good grip and lightweight. The short claw sword was light of course, but it was also incredibly durable. It would be useful for cutting off materials and other work.

It took two weeks for these weapons to be made, but the results were fantastic. I spent the past week running through the plains to test them out. Though we managed to avoid falling into further trouble like the last time, and things stayed mostly peaceful. Kill some grass wolves, take the materials and then run to the next area. Rinse and repeat.

 

On the other hand, Daniela seemed to desperately want to move on with our journey as soon as my weapons were complete, but I managed to prolong our stay just a little longer. The reason for this was that a Hero was to visit this city of the plains.

 

The Hero, Yasushi Matsumoto. Okay, his name sounded like a drug store, but he was a true Hero who had suppressed a dragon stampede. Unlike me, this guy was bound to have an amazing, flashy cheat skill. Or so I told myself, my imagination running wild. But I didn’t even know if he had arrived here through reincarnation or teleportation. In fact, all my assumptions were purely from the fact that his name sounded Japanese.

 

He had heard rumors of the stampede that had been prevented in the city of the plains and was sent from the royal capital to investigate the mines. He would surely have heard my name at that point, and if was indeed from Japan, then he would, in turn, assume that I was from there as well. I could only hope that he wasn’t some self-obsessed protagonist type. I did not want to get involved in that kind of drama…
