Shinmai Boukensha – 26
Day 26: Letter and Community
Holy Era 6102, Month of the Marsh Dragon, 9th day.
My vision is so narrow…and I’m cold…and shaky.
…Am I even walking?
…Ahhh. But I have finally reached the Adventurers Guild.
There are so many people inside, but they are strangely quiet… Also, the lights seem darker than usual.
…But more importantly, I have to find this Karl… When I started walking again, the sword scraped against the ground loudly.
…It’s heavy. Maybe I can let it go now…
I felt the vibration as it hit the floor…the sound…
…Mr. Karl… Where is he? Now that I think about it, I have never met him before…
And so I decided to just move towards the bar, but then someone held me back.
They seemed terribly frantic, but… I’m sorry. I can barely even see anything now.
And the voice… Ahh, but I think I understand. …Are you Mr. Karl?
I took out the letter from my pocket and offered it to him. Yes, he did take it.
Ah, now my mission is finally complete… Ms. Marga and Ms. El. I did it…
…And that was the last thing I remember.
When my eyes opened again, I was lying in bed.
…I felt so dizzy… Am I even alive?
I have this feeling that up until a second ago, I was having a terribly frightening and painful dream…
And before I knew it, I was crying uncontrollably.
And then suddenly, someone gently stroked my forehead. Wha? Who is it?
I wiped away the tears and turned my head. A woman in a nun’s habit was sitting next to the bed.
Her gentle eyes and smile were striking. Yes, perhaps it was because of the kind of people I had been involved with most of the time but there was something very comforting about her. Like she was a mother.
Her names Ms. Marina. She was the healer within a community that was led by Mr. Karl.
This community was a kind of cooperative association made up of Adventurers. It was much larger in scale than a party, and their activities expanded much farther.
To put it simply, it was like a small guild that is solely made up of Adventurers?
If you were in one, you could gather members easily, even for emergency missions. And there were many other merits as well.
Healers were sorcerers who specialized in recovery. That was all I knew.
According to Ms. Marina, they had sent out a support team for Ms. Marga as soon as they received the letter.
Ahh, that was good. I had fulfilled my role.
As I sighed with relief, Ms. Marina began to bow her head deeply, which made me a little frantic.
Apparently, she was apologizing that a member of their community had made me do something so reckless.
When I asked, Ms. Marina explained that she was the deputy head of the community… It sure seemed hard, having to lead others… Also, I didn’t know that Ms. Marga was in a community…
In any case, I accepted her apology, but asked her to leave for today.
I wanted to be alone and get some rest. Ah, by the way, this room was apparently in the guild’s infirmary.
While Ms. Marina’s magic had healed most of my injuries, it wasn’t enough to recover my physical energy.
I was so sleepy… I had worked too hard, and so I must sleep now… Good night…
Today’s earnings and expenses:
(Scrap mana crystals: Uncounted)
Balance: 49 bronze
*o_ _)o Splat. I’m going to sleep…please don’t wake me up for a long time.
Senpai boukenshasan ga tasukete kureru no de kitto daijoubu nano desu! Shinmai boukensha no nikki-chou
Well at least this Ms. Marina knew that what they did was unnecessarily reckless. Hopefully she punishes those two once they get back.
Anyways since Adventurer-chan (has she ever been named before?) apparently walked all the way back then I take it she didn’t harvest anything from the ant that attacked her. Hopefully one of the people that got sent to the dungeon as backup will locate the ant corpse and loot it to give the materials to her later.
Hopefully, but it might be in a roundabout way; like someone tries nicking it for themselves, gets caught out in the end but some senior adventurer (probably Mr. Karl) and only then would it make its way back.
“You have worked hard little one. Now, it is time to rest.” A deep and powerful voice said …Or at least one did in my head.
Thanks for the chapter!
