After finishing his breakfast, a team of young beastkin men came to take Danton home.
He thanked me repeatedly and asked me to take care of his daughters.
Once Danton was gone, I went out into the garden to play with Lord Gerberga and Grulf.
“Wouldn’t you want to take a walk outside as well, Lord Gerberga?”
Lord Gerberga stopped eating grubs for a moment and ran towards me.
Actually, I had no idea what he was saying.
But it didn’t seem like he was eager to go on a walk.
On the other hand, Grulf started to wag his tail vigorously in front of me as soon as he heard the word ‘walk.’
His eyes were full of expectation.
“Grulf looks like he wants to go.”
And so I told Milka and Luchila that I was going out on a walk.
I had a metal breastplate that could carry Lord Gerberga when I was on the move, and so I put it on now.
“I will go too!”
“Did you tell Shia that you are leaving the house?”
Then there was no problem. And so all four of us decided to go.
As we walked down the streets, Nia said,
“I could take Grulf on walks for you…”
“I like the exercise too. Besides, I have to show up at the Adventurers Guild every now and then.”
“Are you going to take on quests?”
“Not really. But I would like to see how my friends are doing.”
Lord Gerberga was walking right next to me.
“Let me know when you get tired, Lord Gerberga.”
We met Ario and Josh at the Adventurers Guild.
Ario, the F-Rank Sorcerer, smiled as he talked to us.
“Ah, Locke. It’s been a while.”
“A while? It’s only been a few days. Do you need any help today?”
“No, we’re fine. Today, it’s just herb gathering.”
Then Josh, the F-Rank Archer and Scout, said,
“Mister Locke. I see you have someone with you today.”
“This is Shia’s younger sister.”
And so I introduced them to each other.
“So you’re the same rank as us. Maybe we can team up some time.”
“That’s so impressive considering your age.”
“It’s our tribe’s custom.”
“What a great tribe. It’s no wonder Shia is so strong.”
Josh was genuinely impressed.
We talked for a while after that.
Ario was trying to acquire another spell after Fireball.
“I might be able to get Magic Arrow. But I also want to learn other magic. Do you have any suggestions?”
“Let me see… I think it would be wise to stick to those two for now.”
“It’s better than being a jack of all trades and master of none. Fireballs are difficult to use by themselves. And Magic Arrows are not great against multiple enemies. But…”
“I can manage if I use both of them?”
“In most cases, yes.”
“I see. That is good advice. Thank you!”
“Don’t mention it.”
And with that, Ario and Josh went out to gather herbs.
