Said Zyce, who was the person I had helped with healing magic a little while ago.
I was glad that he was looking good now.
…Well, it would seem rude to say no after they insisted this much.
And I had nothing better to do. So I would join them.
“Okay. I’ll go.”
“Great! We should hurry then! The others will be waiting!”
And so they pulled me towards the largest tavern in Rikardo.
As soon as the 3 of us entered…a roar of applause erupted.
“Ah! The star of the night has finally arrived!”
“Zyce, you’re late!”
I was a little confused at this reaction, and so I asked Udoka about it.
“Star? …Oh, are they talking about you?”
“Stop being dense. Who could it be if not you? You solved the firewood crisis in an instant and then healed Zyce and his family. You are the star of this ‘Snow-Melting Party.’”
The others all nodded at this.
…So word of my firewood gathering had spread very far then…
“So, Yuji. Please make a toast.”
I had just done my job as an Adventurer. There was no need to throw a party for that…
But it seemed a little late to break this news to them.
Besides, I was sure that they just wanted an excuse to drink a lot.
And so they would just be annoyed if I didn’t cooperate.
“All right, leave it to me!”
I said as I accepted my drink.
Then I raised it high into the air and said,
“To the snow melting in Rikardo!”
The tavern was filled with the sounds of cheers and glasses hitting each other.
And then the party to celebrate the melting of the snow began.
After the party had gone on for several hours.
Some of the people had collapsed from too much drinking. And so I took out the Blue Moon of Salvation’s assassination candidates list and started to look through it again.
I had been able to meet more people during the party.
And so I wanted to send some slimes to protect any who might be on this list.
Not only would I be able to protect them, but it might help me track down the movements of the organization as well.
Still, it would be better if none of them were on.
Suddenly, I realized that there were names on the other side of the page I was holding as well.
It seemed that there had not been enough space, and so they had written on the other side.
I looked at it and froze.
Assassination targets: Additional candidates:
My name was on the list.
…It couldn’t be me, could it?
Yuji wasn’t an unusual name, after all.
