The man steadily walked over and gazed at Esther.
He called Esther “Esther-san”, but she knew that he didn’t respect her at all.
“Were the requested goblins subdued?” (Creepy Guy)
“Of course. However, there was a big difference between the requested content and the actual number of goblins.” (Esther)
“Well, well……” (Creepy Guy)
The man turned to me.
At the moment when those eyes turned to me. My skin crawled like cockroaches were walking over my spine.
“Who is that boy?” (Creepy Guy)
“He’s Toru. He got involved in subjugating the goblins.” (Esther)
“I see. Esther-san saved the boy there and couldn’t defeat the prescribed number of goblins. It’s a shame, I’m sorry.” (Creepy Guy)
“It’s different. The request was successful.” (Esther)
Esther took out a cloth bag from inside her breastplate. Opening it then seeing it filled with goblin ears.
(What’s going on in Esther’s breastplate?)
Up to now, her adventurer card has come out in various moments. But this time it’s extremely special. The bag that came out is not small enough to fit in a breastplate.
Is her chest smaller than I imagined? When I thought about that, Esther gazed at me sideways.
The receptionist, who received the bag and opened her mouth, opened her eyes wide.
“E, Esther-san how many goblins have you subdued?!” (Marie)
“Hmm, there were thirty to fifty bodies?” (Esther)
“so much……” (Marie)
“Can you confirm?” (Esther)
“Oh, I see. I will evaluate it immediately.” (Marie)
“–Hmm” (Creepy Guy)
A man snorted beside the rushed receptionist.
“A subjugation while protecting this kid? Did Esther-san do it? You must have cheated or something, right?” (Creepy Guy)
“How rude, but I would have been killed by that many goblins by myself.” (Esther)
” So, who is the helper?” (Creepy Guy)
“Ah. Toru killed most of the goblins.” (Esther)
“Eh?” (Creepy Guy)
Esther was very proud of herself.
Her grin was so wide it looks like it’s reaching both of her ears.
(Why is Esther proud…)
It was then that mysense of tension vanished.
“This dirty little kid, hey you” (Creepy Guy)
“… that word, take it back.” (Esther)
Esther was angry at the man’s words.
It was so strong that I couldn’t even feel it during the battle with the Goblin. The atmosphere made the man feel pressured.
“Okay, I’ll take it back.” (Creepy Guy)
“… Is that all?” (Esther)
“Guu… I’m very sorry, Toru-san.” (Creepy Guy)
“No. It’s a fact that I’m a bit dirty.”
Esther and the man were relaxed because of Toru’s neutral tone.
The light tone of Toru is not to soften the place. Even if a man said that he was a little dirty, Toru thought only “Well, that’s right.”
He’s indeed dirty, so it can’t be helped, Toru thought
“Fufu. Toru has a good temper.” (Esther)
Esther blew out a sigh in relief.
“That’s good, Philip. There’s hope for you yet.” (Esther)
“I’m sorry to have kept you waiting. Please check because the assessment is done.” (Marie)
In the meantime, the receptionist finished the assessment. Using that as a signal, the man named Philip went back to the back of the counter as if nothing had happened.
“I confirmed the ears of 43 goblins in total. This is the reward for the achievement of the request accepted by Esthe-sanr. Since the number of goblin subjugation was quite large, this time it’s considered a special request has been cleared. I added a bit.” (Marie)
“Oh, that helps.” (Esther)
Esther received a small hemp bag with a reward from the receptionist.
She took out a few large copper coins and put them in her purse bag.
However, the remaining coins in the bag were handed to me.
“It’s a reward for Toru” (Esther)
“Toru killed most of the goblins. I’d be troubled if I had received all of this.” (Esther)
I was extremely thankful, and there are no words to describe my feelings.
However, a loan should be returned immediately.
I took out a large copper coin from the hemp bag and pressed it against Esther.
“This is the money you used to get me in. With this, my debt was repaid.”
“Well, uh… no, you didn’t have to worry about this.” (Esther)
“I will be in trouble if you do not receive it.”
“…………all right” (Esther)
I imitated her words making Esther smile.
“Assessment is over but is there anything else?” (Marie)
“There’s one. I want Toru to be registered in the guild.” (Esther)
“Okay, so please fill in the required information first.” (Marie)
I received the pen and looked at the paper presented. Items include my name, place of origin, weapons I can handle, job, etc.
(Weapons are swords. What kind of work should I write? I wonder if it’s a swordsman or a magician?)
I thought for a while and wrote “Unemployed”.
“Hou. Toru can write letters.” (Esther)
“Ah… yeah. That’s right.”
When Esther told me, I realized what I was writing. I was casually writing otherworld characters without any feelings of discrepancy.
(Is this also because of the [Language Comprehension] skill? It’s convenient, but it’s kind of strange.)
It’s okay if I write unconsciously with my hands moving, but to know what I have been writing. I should not be able to write Eargard characters.
When the form was filled up, the receptionist returned from the back of the counter with a transparent ball.
“I’ve kept you waiting. Well, Toru-san. Please put your hand on this crystal.” (Marie)
“This is a tool to observe the soul.” (Marie)
“Observe the soul…?”
I do not understand what it means. I tilted my head in confusion.
“This is mainly to check if the soul has been stamped with a “mark” in the past.” (Marie)
“If you are from a village, you may not be familiar, but in a big city, a person who commits a felony has a “mark” on his soul.” (Esther)
Esther told me about the transparent ball whose function I could not understand. I insisted that I didn’t know because I was from a village.
“So that’s it” (Marie)
“Other than that, you can also easily measure your suitability as an adventurer.” (Esther)
“It can do that.” (Marie)
“Yes. Since it is a qualitative tool in the least. It cannot see what kind of potential you have, but it is used as a reference for your suitability to a request.” (Marie)
“Is that so. I understand.”
“Okay, please.” (Marie)
I swallowed uncomfortably and put my hand on the crystal on the counter.
Then a small light shined in the middle of the crystal.
It is like a light bulb that responds to human hands and emits light.
My eyes were glued on the magical scene I saw for the first time.
However, in contrast to My reaction, the receptionist and Esther were not excited.
“No, that’s… I was thinking of something else because Toru’s light was so small.” (Marie)
“Maybe he has no talent?” (Esther)
“No, it’s not the size of light that determines talent…” (Marie)
Esther doubtfully asks the receptionist.
“Oh, yeah, yes. Whether or not you have talent is not the size of the light, but the brightness. Toru-san has a certain level of brightness, so there is no problem…” (Marie)
The receptionist cut the words there and continued with a look that seemed uncomfortable.
“When did you arrive in Eargard?” (Marie)
At the moment when the receptionist asked, I felt like time had stopped.
(When did you arrived in Eargard?)
This question would not come out unless they think that I was from another world.
In other words, the receptionist suspects that I am an other world traveller.
“If I made a mistake, I apologize and I will correct myself. This soul measuring instrument changes the intensity of light according to the “soul record”. Usually, it is the age of the person registered in the guild. The fist is about the size of a large fist, but Toru-san has no record of his soul.
Looking at your possible age, you can’t get such a tiny light unless you suddenly appeared from nowhere.
“In other words, if the light is so small, the soul may be of a “lost person” who has come to this world.” (Marie)
“A lost person…”
“You’re a lost person!?” (Esther)
The reaction between me and Esther was the opposite.
Being called a lost person, I was pondering what to do when it was discovered that I was from a “different world.” However, Esther made a different kind of surprised expression.
I wanted to avoid people hearing that I was from a different world. Because if it is known as such I would be branded as a strange person.
But if the lost person is asked straight-on I can’t answer with a lie.
“Maybe if you’re a lost-person you can’t register in the guild?”
“No, that’s not the case. Some people have been lost and have been registered in the guild in the past.” (Marie)
“There seem to be many lost people”
“Yes. It’s a bit rare, but it seems to happen several times a year.” (Marie)
(Hey, are you okay to send people from different worlds so often?)
I was disappointed at the work of the self-proclaimed god.
Sending a soul from another world is likely to have a bad effect on Eargard.
“I understand the meaning of the light. I would like to ask if I can register in the guild even if I’m a lost person.”
“Are you sure you want to register?” (Marie)
The receptionist asked.
(She’s very cautious)
That was when I had doubts.
“Hey, dat ‘tomato bastard’ he iz also a ‘lost’”. (Drunkard 1)
“Being an inferyer persen wanting to becam ‘n adventurer iz a death wush, zo quit aand neeever try agen.” (Drunkard 2)
“Gyahahahaha!!” (Drunkard 1 & 2)
Perhaps both were looking at me from across the guild’s bar. Two adventurer-like men with mugs laughed.
Their face is very red. Both seem to be quite drunk.
I contemplated their words.
