10 Years After – 30
Speaking with Goran
I could understand why Goran would say no.
A chicken was different from a dog or a cat. Chickens were noisy.
They would cry loudly every morning. It would also disturb the neighbors.
“What? But why?”
“No, of course, you can’t. And your mother would be furious…”
Serulis seemed like she couldn’t comprehend why he would say no.
Goran seemed like he couldn’t comprehend why she didn’t see this coming.
Just then, a sound came from behind Serulis.
It was clearly the voice of Lord Gerberga.
“Hm? What was that just now?”
Serulis made a futile attempt to fake ignorance.
“Sh! Please be quiet.”
“Serulis. Is that…”
“W-w-w-w-what? I don’t know.”
Serlis was sweating now.
I suppose I could give her a helping hand.
“Goran. Can I have a word with you regarding Serulis’ request?”
“Remember that I told you about what the Vampire Lords were doing?”
“You said they were gathering medals to open a gate between our dimensions.”
“Yes, and it seems like they’ve been moving again.”
“Tell me the details.”
And so I had Goran wait there and called Shia.
And Luchila as well.
Of course, Luchila was holding Gerberga.
Goran saw this and his jaw dropped.
“Goran! This is the God Fowl Lord Gerberga. In no way is he an ordinary chicken.”
“Oh, oh… I see. Sorry. Lord Gerberga, eh?”
I wanted to avoid having Luchila become angry at Goran.
That was close.
Goran was a lot like his daughter.
And so I introduced Goran to Shia and Luchila.
“This is Goran. The Grand Master of the guild and the lord of this house.”
“And this is Shia. She is the B Rank Adventurer who I partnered with to kill the Vampire Lord.”
“Oh, I’ve heard all about you. Thank you for your valuable information. As the representative of the guild, you have my thanks.”
“Oh, no. It is a great honor to meet you!”
Shia said nervously.
“And this is Luchila. He is protecting Lord Gerberga and brought him here.”
“Nice to meet you.”
“I’m Luchila. Nice to meet you.”
When that was done, Goran looked at me.
I hadn’t explained to him about Luchila and Gerberga yet.
And so he wanted me to hurry up and explain it to him.
“Goran. Luchila is from a tribe to the north… But they were destroyed when they were attacked by vampires”
And then I explained about Gerberga’s powers.
At first, he seemed very skeptical about a chicken having such powers.
However, I told him that I had witnessed it myself, and so he believed me.
“I see. So that is why Serulis asked me if she can keep a pet chicken.”
“Lord Gerberga is not a chicken.”
Luchila retaliated as usual.
