Chapter 12 – Bear-san Quarrels In The Guild Again
The next day, I hurried over to the guild early in the morning, in order to receive a new request.
I wanted to find a good job, so it was earlier than usual.
If possible, a subjugation request would be good, so I can practice magic.
It would be even better if it was wolves.
I was hurrying to the guild early in the morning to get that kind of request.
As I was walking, while relaxing and viewing the city, a voice called out from behind.
「Big Sis Yuna, good morning.」
「Good morning, Fina. Are you going to the guild」
「Yes, thats right. Are you going too, Big Sis Yuna」
「Well, yeah, I wanted to get a good job.」
「I see, please be careful to not get injured.」
「You do well at your job too.」
Fina grabbed my bear hand while smiling.
I clenched her hand back without hesitation.
Finas smile bloomed even more.
If I had a younger sister, I would want one like her.
The guild came into view as I walked and smiled with Fina.
「Well then, I am going now.」
「Have a nice day!」
I sent Fina off and entered the guild.
There was a crowd before the board.
I was too late.
People began to notice me, but no one called out to me.
Just as I thought this, a voice called out to me.
「You are the woman who defeated Deborane-san」
A male adventurer asked me.
He looked maybe three or four years older than me.
I tilted my head.
I dont remember that name.
I asked, because I couldnt remember.
「That would be you. The one wearing bear clothes, bear gloves on her hands and bear shoes on her feet. The woman who dresses like a joke.」
Indeed, if you looked around the world, I was probably the only person wearing an outfit like this.
I wonder if theres another person like me.
「Deborane, huh. I dont know that person, but I think that the woman in bear clothes may be me.」
「Because of you, Deborane-san is...he is hurt and unable to work.」
「Oh, is he one of the adventurers I fought before」
That was the only thing that I could think of.
Ah, I remember.
The man who wanted to mess with me had a name like that.
However, there is no reason to complain to me.
I should call the Guild Master.
He promised me that he would take care of stuff like this.
「That fellow, Deborane, wanted a fight. I won and thus he got injured. Im not in the wrong. Also, that goblin didnt get injured to the extent that he should be making so much noise.」
「You, dont treat Deborane-san as a goblin!」
「He has no courtesy, acts with bravado in front of a weak opponent, says big words, but cant do anything without a crowd behind his back. No matter how you look at it, he is a goblin.」
「Dont joke around!」
I can hear you even if you dont shout so loudly.
「Are you a goblin that doesnt understand speech This matter should already be settled, with it being his own fault.」
「Theres no way Deborane-san would lose to someone like you!」
「Stop sulking. I heard Guild Masters explanation. Shes not at fault.」
A blond woman in her twenties walked up to me and the man.
She was quite a beautiful and slender woman.
「But, we cant complete the request because of this fellow!」
「Even so, you must understand that shes not at fault. Gill, why dont you say something」
The woman talked to the huge man that was next to her.
He was a muscleman on the same level of the Guild Master.
「Deborane is in the wrong.」
「What You are also taking this weird womans side」
「After I heard the story, it was clear that Deborane was at fault.」
「Do we have to give up just because of that」
I wonder if hes that badly injured
Certainly, I used a high number of Bear punches on his face.
「Deborane is at fault, so theres no helping it.」
「Thats right. His Guild Card was nearly taken away from him, after all.」
「That was because of this fellow!」
「Umm, you are talking amongst yourselves. Can I also say something」
「Ah, Im sorry. Lanz is just angry because Deborane cant take any requests, due to his injury.」
「Even so, theres no need to complain to me about it.」
「I know that, but...」
「Isnt it alright to take the request without Deborane」
「Well, we already received it.」
「If we cancel the request, it will count as a failure!」
A failure was recorded forever on the Guild Card.
They wanted to avoid failures as much as possible.
Even so, its troubling when you come to me just because of that.
Goblin started the fight, so Im not at fault.
「Should we just give up」
「But completing that quest will push our rank up even further!」
「I heard some adventurers are quarreling with Yuna, and it turns out that its you guys.」
The Muscle Daruma came over.
It seems like the receptionist called him.
「I already told you that Deboranes case isnt Yunas fault.」
「But, because of this fellow, we cant complete the request anymore.」
「Thats your responsibility. Deborane challenged this fellow, and lost. You guys left Deborane alone without supervision, so you are at fault. You guys know that Deborane is quick to get into fights.」
「I know that but-」
「Then, there is a good method.」
「What Canceling the request without marking it as a failure」
「That is impossible. Once a request is taken, it cant be canceled without paying a penalty. Canceling is treated as a failure.」
「Then, what is this good method」
「Just take Yuna with you. I know for a fact that she is way stronger than Deborane.」
「Hey, what are you doing, deciding by yourself.」
「Its simple. You should take Yuna, instead of Deborane.」
「No way. Why do I have to take on such unreasonable request.」
「Its the easiest solution.」
「Umm, Yuna-chan, was it Could you hear me out for a second please」
The woman dressed as a mage asked me.
I have very little experience partying, and thats in game rather than real life.
Of course, I do have some experience, since Im not a loner.
Though, its just a little bit.
I couldnt refuse the mages gaze, so I decided to hear her out.
We borrowed a room in the guild. Now Im alone with three of Deboranes party members.
By the way, the Guild Master ran away.
I have to deal with something this troublesome, but he ran away, that Muscle Daruma.
This is all because of Deborane.
「Then, first, I will introduce myself. Im Rurina. The one who complained to you is Lanz and the silent one is Gill.」
For now, I introduced myself as well.
「Then, the request we have received is goblin subjugation.」
Goblins were less intelligent, humanoid demons.
Wasnt that a monster for beginners
They need a party for this Is this party weak
「It isnt just one goblin. Its a subjugation of a group of fifty of them. It will be hard without Deborane acting as a vanguard.」
In the game era, a group of fifty goblins counted as small fry.
I wonder how the present me would do.
The subjugation of a pack of wolfes was easy.
In the game, the level of wolfes and goblins was about the same.
If this was still the case, they should be no challenge for me.
「Just to confirm, which is stronger, the wolfe or the goblin」
「In the rank system, they are about the same. It really depends on the setup of the party. Our party is more comfortable with goblins.」
「Wolfe movements are fast. Its hard for a wizard like me to support the party. Goblins, on the other hand, can be overpowered in close combat.」
I will have to fight them eventually anyways.
If this was a game, there would be no problem, but un...
「Its your fault. Lend us your power!」
「Lanz, be silent!」
Its fine to lend them a hand, but I dont want to be Deboranes replacement. Also, that Lanz guys attitude is horrible. That Gill guy just stays quiet, so the only decent one is Rurina.
Im a honest-to-goodness hikikomori, so its troublesome for me to help others.
Still, its certainly my fault that he got injured.
The fight wasnt my fault though.
Umumumumu...what to do.
「Un. Is it alright to set some conditions」
「If its something we can do.」
「You want to reap the rewards What a dirty woman.」
I ignored him.
「Let me do the request by myself. You can have the achievement for succeeding and all the rewards. In return, I dont want Deborane to come near me ever again.」
「Yuna-chan, to leave it to you alone...」
「You want us to just stay silent and watch」
「Why not The completion of the request and the rewards will be yours, so there is no demerit for you.」
「If you fail, it will count as our fail. There is no way we can accept such conditions.」
「Also, we cant do something as shameful as letting another person complete the request and taking credit for it.」
If I fail, it will count as their failure.
I also understand Rurina-sans point.
As an adventurer, it would be a really shameful thing to do.
What to do.
「Then, I want only Rurina-san to help me.」
「Why only Rurina」
「Its because she is the most decent one out of all of you, has the most common sense, interacts the most with me and is also the only woman. The main reason is, because I dont want to work with you」
「Lanz, stop it.」
Rurina-san stops him.
「Yuna-chan, can you defeat a horde of goblins alone」
「I can The pack of wolfes was easy. Actually, Ill be able to practice magic more against goblins.」
「You can use magic, Yuna-san According to the story, you didnt use magic when you fought with Deborane.」
「I didnt use it.」
To be more precise, I still didnt know how to use magic at the time.
「I mean, I dont need to use magic on weak enemy. Rurina-san, you wouldnt use magic to kill a small bug, would you」
When I treated Deborane like an insect, their mouths opened in shock.
「Is it really possible」
「Its just fifty Deboranes (goblins).」
「I understand. I will go with you.」
「Are you okay with that, Gill」
「I dont mind.」
「Well then, Yuna-chan, please take care of me.」
「So, when are we going」
「If its alright with you, we can go immediately.」
「Im fine with that, but I didnt prepare anything.」
「Thats okay. We were planning to go today, so we already prepared enough things for four people.」
I ignored Lanzs silent stares.
Gill didnt say anything.
I left the guild with Rurina. We have a goblin subjugation to do.
