Shinmai Boukensha – 65

Day 65: I Looked Forward to the Reward!!
Holy Era 6102, Month of the Water Serpent, 17th day.
Weather: Sunny


It’s now the morning after we separated from Rai and the others… I feel as if there is now a hole left in my chest.
And I was supposed to have hated nobles… So why do I feel sad…and gloomy.
Yes, after I finish eating breakfast, I shall go to work.
I will feel better if I move my body! We will work hard today as well, Ms. Noa!!

And so I felt quite excited as I went over to the guild. But first, there was something I had to do before work.
I had to learn the results for the Golem appraisal!!
After all, it was so big. Surely it has made us very rich!!
And so I rushed impatiently to the front desk and asked about it…

…Why is it so cheap!?

I couldn’t help but lean over the desk earnestly… But! But!!
The lady looked a little disturbed at my behavior as she explained it to me.
Apparently, that Golem wasn’t actually made of mithril silver.
To be precise, it had been coated in mithril. It was mithril plated!!
In other words, they were not able to gather much mithril from it.

As I stood there, stunned by the revelation, she continued with even more tragic news.
Because it had taken a lot of work and time to peel off the mithril, they were going to deduct the fees from my reward… Th-the complete lack of mercy… Has god died!?
As I tried to hold back the tears, I was given my reward and a tiny silver ingot.
It was about the size of the tip of my little finger… What is it?

As I wondered about it, the lady told me that it was mithril.
It was the leftovers… But, what could I do with such a small amount?
Huh? You want it, Ms. Noa?
I don’t mind… But what are you going to use it for? A secret…

While I didn’t feel enthusiastic anymore, it was time to look for some work.
I suppose I would just choose a random and easy one…

…I then found a strange quest.
Find some Matatabi fruit? Weren’t those the things that cats really like?
Also, surely it was impossible, considering the season… Right now, the flowers are blooming.
…You would have to wait several months for the fruits.
Ah, but the reward was so high…
Hmm…!! I just got an idea. I am going to accept this quest!!

And so we arrived in the middle of the forest…no, the town’s market!!
Now, don’t look so confused, Ms. Noa. Let’s split up and search for it.
It must be somewhere around here!!

In the evening, I bought what I was looking for and returned to the guild, where the lady was waiting as if worried.
And so with a proud expression, I gave her the item that was requested.
Her eyes widened at the sight of it. The item that I submitted was…

Matatabi wine with fruit in it!!

Like this, they could be acquired during this season as well.
After all, the quest description said nothing about the state it should be in, so there shouldn’t be a problem.
But when I said this, the guild worker lady was clearly troubled.
Still, after thinking it over for some time, she asked me to wait one night so that she could check with the client… Well, it could not be helped.

Ms. Noa, let us return to our inn then.
Huh? No, we’re staying in a normal inn tonight! We’ll go broke if we stay in a luxury inn every night!!

Today’s earnings and expenses:
Bronze: -28(Inn x2) (Bed: A, Food: A)
Silver: -1(Matatabi wine(1 large bottle))
Gold: +1(Reward for mithril: fee already deducted)
Mithril Ingot(Very small x1)
————————–

ヾ(〃^∇^)ノYay♪ While they deducted some, it’s still my first gold!!
