To Deprive a Deprived Person

Chapter 041 - Overtaken (Conclusion)


(TL note: last chapter seemed to be the end of volume one combined with this one.. However it is only the mid part of the second arc on the web novel.. Anyway, enjoy your daily dose of TDADP…)

When we arrived at the Comer city adventurers guild, Lena and Muga walked towards Collet’s counter.

“Excuse me, I want to report the quest. ” (Muga)

” Yes, please wait a moment. Muga’s party accepted a request of subduing a goblin general with a different appearance. So, Lena how’s your time in the party? Is it good? ” (Collet)

” It was good experience.. In a different meaning. ” (Lena)

Collet seems confused but she didn’t think too much. However when Muga showed her the goblins' ear, she was shocked.

” This is a goblin king's! Did the rank go up? ”

” It was impossible for it to suddenly rank up isn’t it? ”

It should be a false report.

” Let me look deeper into this matter. Please wait. ”

When Collet said those words about the goblin king, the adventurers around were shocked. Although it was only a rank 4, the reward was equal to a rank 6 monster such as an earth dragon.

Collet came back after a while.

” Please follow me. ” (Collet)

” Yu, you’re not going to come with me? ” (Lena)

Although we helped, Lalit, Nina and me weren’t aiming for the quest. We were there to save Lena.

” Please wait here for the Guild master. ”

After taking Lena and Muga, Collet returned five minutes later.

” Collet, can I ask you something in the mean time? ”

” Sure. ”

” I heard that some adventurers could rent a house. Is that true? ”

” That’s true. You could even buy it. Some high ranking adventurers even bought big houses. But isn’t Yu only an E rank? ”

For an E rank adventurer to rent or even buy a house can only be considered as a joke. But unlike ordinary adventurers, I didn’t spend money on consumables like potions, I created them. If it not for the stay in the inn, probably our expenses could be reduced. Meals and daily chores, thanks to grandma Stella, I don’t have any problem doing them.

“It’s alright. As long as the price doesn’t exceeds five million moon coins (50 gold). I don’t care about the location but it would be great if I could get a big residence. ”

What i said removed the smile from Collet’s face for a second before she returned to her usual face.

” Alright, I’ll look for some properties later that meet your requirements. ”

” We’re going to buy a house?  I’m so~ happy ♪ ” (Nina)

” What? Who said that we’re going to live together? ”

” You don’t have any reason to refuse me of course! ”

——

Meanwhile Lena met with the Guild master.

” You said that the target of the quest, the goblin general was actually a goblin king? ” (mofisu)

” We have told you many times before. ”  (Lena)

” So, from a four man party to reduced to two, where are the other two? ”

” We don’t know. They left us behind when we were fighting!” (Muga)

In the first place, a goblin king should possess weapon skills of at least level 5. The main concern however was their [pack leader] skill. Even if it was 10 partys of E rank adventurers, it was impossible to subdue it. Yu must have had involvement in it, but how to make them talk?

“Goblin kings unique skill of [pack leader] didn’t gave you any trouble? ”

” Like we said before, he didn’t use it. There were no other goblins there. ”

Of course this answer was prepared all along.

” Are you telling the truth? ”

Mofisu sent a glare at them that caused Muga’s body to stiffen. Lena's expressionless face didn’t change as usual.

” Is that the truth? ”

As Muga kept being pressured, Lena replied.

“… Our report is finished.. Quickly give us the reward. This is troublesome, old man..”

Being called old man, Mofisu was hurt and couldn’t hold them any longer.

———

“Oh,  you have returned. It took you some time. ” (Yu)

“… The old man was persistent..”  (Lena)

” We were interrogated many times. ” (Muga)

” It seemed that he didn’t take our lies easily.. ” (Nina)

” So, the reward was 100 gold coins.  Is it really okay for us to get half of it? ” (Yu)

” Yes.. It is because of you guys that this quest was a success anyway. ” (Muga)

After she came back, Lena was grinning like silly.

” Lena is there something wrong ? ”

“.. I just ranked up to D..”

” What? Although you used to be E rank. ”

Like a little child boasting she showed her card to me.

” I also went up to D rank! It seems that killing a rank 4 monster gave us lots of points. ” (Muga)

” Hahaha.. It seemed that the party leader was overtaken by his subordinate. Hahaha. ” (Lalit)

Of course, Lalit was going to reach C rank soon and he is the highest rank among us.

” Yu will be left behind. ”  (Lena)

” Haha.. I saw some frustration on your face. ” (Nina)

” So noisy! ” (Yu)

When Lena came out of the room after talking to Mofisu, Joseph stepped in.

” Of course I know about all the details. ”

It was to somehow ease Mofisu's anger. But Joseph then put his cloak, bracelet, ring, and pendant on top of the desk. All of them had hiding properties on them.

” What is this? ”

” Just to get the information, I had to buy these items. ”

” So, what is it? ”

” It’s 300 gold coin in total. If you want to know, then you have to reimburse me first. ”

On Mofisu's face, clear blue veins can be seen.

” How dare you play with me! ”

Mofisus' angry voice can even be heard at the first floor reception counter from third floor.

Joseph sat down while Mofisu kept on yelling. However he didn’t cared. Right now Joseph’s mind was full of methods to train Yu. He wants to makes Yu stronger.

(TL note: that’s it for the first volume I think… Anyway.. I don’t think I have time tomorrow since I’ll be helping out starting today.. Sooner than I think.. Let’s just see where the blowing winds takes me)
