“In fact, a swarm of monsters has been sighted near a closeby mountain. …And they have come in incredible numbers. It may not be long until that swarm comes to attack our town.”
…A monster outbreak, huh?
Now that I think about it, I had heard something about how the number of monsters was increasing recently.
Maybe it’s related to that.
“And they are coming to this town?”
“No. We don’t know which town they will attack. And that is why they are dangerous. As a guild, we cannot focus all our strength in one place. That is why we need medicine.”
The manager said as he picked up one of the Dria flowers and inspected it.
Then he nodded with satisfaction.
“…With this much, we could reduce the damage. Medicine made from Dria flowers is highly effective. …Here is your reward. Please take it.”
The manager then stacked the gold coins in front of me.
As it was supposed to be a safe quest, I had only accepted it as practice…and yet it had turned out to be quite lucrative.
Still, it wasn’t all good news.
There were many monsters. And we didn’t know when or where they would attack.
“So the guild is going to take care of everything regarding the monsters?”
“Yes. And so we are currently refusing any requests that are unrelated to the monster outbreak. …Will you help us, Yuji?”
The manager asked as he stared at me.
I did not hesitate to answer.
“Of course. …So, what should I do?”
