Reunited for the first time in a few hours, he quickly turned pale as soon as he saw him.
With the body of a bear on the head of an owl.
Self-proclaimed Sage of the Forest, also known as the Black Employer.
“Hoot! What is it, what are you doing!? Do you still wat something from me?” (Owlbear)
What a terrible look of surprise.
It’s not like I’m planning anything bad to him.
“Stop acting like we’re strangers… Let’s get along with each other since we’re in the same industry.”
“So you’re not human!” (Owlbear)
“Now, for some reason, I was reincarnated as a human.”
“Eh, reincarnation…?” (Owlbear)
Owlbear tilts his head 90 degrees.
Hmm, I said it to someone for the first time outside my former subordinates.
Well, it doesn’t matter if this guy is a mastermind, even if everything is turned upside down.
Since it is easier to talk.
“Yes, thanks to that, I’m a vulnerable human body now.”
“Which part is vulnerable…?” (Owlbear)
Owlbear tilts his head confused with a Hoot.
“It’s hard to believe, but… well, you’re so familiar with the internal affairs, you must have been involved.” (Owlbear)
“You’re quick on the uptake, by the way, where did the Elder Boar go?”
“I am here.” (Elder Boar)
Elder Boar came out of the bush behind me.
“Excuse me, I made you wait long.”
“No, I have some work left to do, and I have unused holidays, so I can’t leave here for the time being, hey Dumbass Owl… I made a mistake, Owlbear-san.” (Elder Boar)
“What did you call me…?” (Owlbear)
Owlbear said with a blatantly shocked face.
Elder Boar, on the other hand, kept smiling.
“Even so, Narugoa-san was a reincarnated person, so now I understand the phrase ‘previous workplace’.” (Elder Boar)
“I’m sorry, that’s why it’s going to take a little longer to introduce you to my old workplace…. I’m ashamed to say that I don’t even know where my old workplace is.”
“Yes, I’ll wait as long as I can, well, we’ve been talking while standing, so please let’s sit down.” (Elder Boar)
“You really quit your job…?” (Owlbear)
I will ignore Owlbear this time and I will accept Elder Boar’s words.
Sitting on an available stump nearby, Owlbear also sat on a nearby rock.
“… So what is the purpose of my former colleagues?” (Owlbear)
“Yeah, there’s something I want to ask you since you call yourself the ‘Sage of the Forest’.”
“–Do you know the Cave of Silence?”
Upon hearing the name, Owlbear’s shoulders shuddered.
“The Cave of Silence… Hoothoot! Of course I know! I heard a lot about it!” (Owlbear)
“… You heard a lot?”
“During my training! It’s a dungeon with the brilliant achievement of raising the recommended level of capture by 20 and more in just a year, and killing the legendary Hero Party who defeated the Late Demon King!” (Owlbear)
“Well, that is…”
My face loosened to a smile.
I don’t feel bad. Rather, I feel quite good.
It feels good to hear my former workplace getting praised.
“That dungeon farthest from the Demon Castle, the personnel in supplies, the dungeon that was unparalleled in the lack of everything, that is the Cave of Silence…” (Owlbear)
“Well, that’s actually mine …”
“—and It’s a big nuisance!” (Owlbear)
“Once they have made such a successful example, the higher ups have decided to cut our budget further! They did something completely unneeded!” (Owlbear)
“The reason for this is because of a certain Mid-Boss who was transferred to the company. I don’t remember the name of that company slave…… that struggled to improve the workplace and even cleaned the toilets.” (Owlbear)
“And what an old-fashioned Mid-Boss we have in this day and age! The previous Mid-Boss of the Cave of Silence was probably a pig-headed, stick-in-the-mud and old-fashioned old man!” (Owlbear)
“The subordinates who are inspired by such a Boss are also company slaves! That seems to be totally stupid! Even more the rumors nowadays…
My “hand” was soon pinching Owlbear’s tiny head with my fingers.
It would have been a little grotesque if I made a slight mistake.
Well, it might still be, soon,
“So I was a pig-headed, stick-in-the-mud…”
“Eh……? Ah……! No way …!” (Owlbear)
Owlbear, who had quite the soliloquy earlier, turned pale.
It seems that he finally noticed it, but it’s too late.
“… Is it going to be another deco-pin?”
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry!!!” (Owlbear)
It was only a few minutes later that I released Owlbear, who desperately apologized.
Now, after another glare.
“Yeah, yeah… I know if it’s the Cave of Silence… to the east far from here…” (Owlbear)
Owlbear replies with a deep sigh.
I see, east…
“How long will it take?”
“The shortest distance is three days … but in that case you have to go through the [Fire Dragon’s Nest]…” (Owlbear)
“Fire Dragon’s Nest … It’s an advanced dungeon with a recommended level of 40 and over.”
“Narugoa-san is a human being, is it impossible to traverse comfortably?” (Elder Boar)
“What is the next route avoiding it?”
“You will take quite the long route, it will take ten days at least?” (Owlbear)
“It’s not very realistic…”
In my past life as a monster, I could have shortened the travel time in a somewhat reasonable way, but… I’m a vulnerable human child now.
Perhaps this body wouldn’t be able to keep up.
And being away from home for three days, or even ten days.
I will worry Timora, my parents, and everyone in the village.
I’m sure Rigat will be delighted with it…… probably celebrate three times harder.
I sighed deeply.
“… I can’t help it, I have to try it, I guess?”
Beside the confused Owlbear, I kneeled on the ground and start drawing the ground with a tree branch.
As usual, I made a magic formation.
“Summoners, I thought they were only able to summon monsters, but reality seems different.”
“What are you saying?” (Owlbear)
“Sometimes you can see it in their action, when everything is used… Elder Boar, I’m sorry, but don’t let anyone disturb this magic formation while I’m away.”
“That’s fine, but are you going somewhere?” (Elder Boar)
“For a little while, my old workplace.”
“What?” (Elder Boar)
“See you later,–[Unsummon]!”
Immediately after the spell, my body is bathed in light that came from the magic formation.
