Something Suspicious Was Happening
A few hours later.
I had returned to my inn after arriving back in Iriarch and making my report to the guild.
And just as I was about to go to sleep… I heard the voice of a slime.
…What… It must be the slimes that were in Ordarion.
Something must be happening.
‘What is it?’
‘It looks like the important people are gathering together!’
‘They look so scary!’
And so I borrowed their vision in order to see… What I saw, was a great, fancy-looking house.
…Ordarion was not a particularly large town, so there couldn’t be many buildings that looked like this.
It was probably the house of the landlord.
And if all the important people were gathered there… It was very likely that they were part of the Blue Moon of Salvation.
I should take a look.
‘Alright. Can you move to a position that is close enough to hear what they are saying? Also, be careful so they don’t see you.’
Then I activated Shared Senses on the slime that was hiding.
A man’s voice could be heard.
From the slime’s position, I couldn’t actually see them…but it seemed like there were at least three people.
“…It’s time. Let’s begin our regular report. …Has anything strange happened recently?”
So, the important people of Ordarion had come together to talk about their current situation.
…Lucky me. I would learn a lot about the state here by listening to them.
“Nothing in the nearby area.”
“Nothing around the guild either. …However, I did hear something from one guild worker.”
“A guild worker?”
“Aye. …Apparently, the Adventurer Yuji, who was formerly a candidate for assassination, visited this town.”
They were suddenly talking about me…
Now that the words ‘assassination candidate’ had been spoken, it was confirmed that the people gathered here were part of the Blue Moon of Salvation.
“You say ‘formerly.’ Does that mean that he was taken off of the list because he was too weak?”
“Yes. But…the guild worker who saw him, Rogue, said that he was dangerous. What should we do?”
“Rogue? …Wasn’t he an assassin that only killed Adventurers?”
