I said, and the slime started to spit out the monsters.
The first was a small boar-like monster.
I hadn’t really picked which monsters to kill, so I was just hoping that there would be some attached to a quest.
…I thought this as I accepted the monster from the slime…
But then the receptionist raised her voice in surprise.
“Hey, wait a minute! Did you buy that monster?”
“…No, I just hunted it normally.”
She heard this and then turned pale.
“Uh…I hope I am wrong, but this forest you gathered herbs in… It wouldn’t be the mountain you reach after leaving the town from the east, would it?”
Yes, I think we did leave the town from the east.
I walked randomly after that, but I do think we had headed towards a mountain.
“I don’t remember it too well, but I think so. …It wasn’t a forbidden area, was it?”
“No, it’s just that no one would go to such a dangerous place just for herbs…”
It was a dangerous place then.
Yes, it did seem like the slimes were encountering monsters quite a lot.
There weren’t any strong monsters, but it was perhaps dangerous for a new Adventurer to go first thing after pulling an all-nighter.
I thought about this before returning to the subject at hand.
“…So, can I get anything for this?”
“Ye-yes! It’s a crash boar. You do not have to accept a quest for it, and it is rank E!”
A monster who dies by a single fireball is E? Not G or H?
Isn’t that a little high?
