I then pass to the stall auntie in the commercial area. The Hall of Sinners is located to the south of the commercial area. It is an area where there are shops for entertainment are located and the slave merchants are.
Therefore, I will go to the open-air market first.
As usual, I find that auntie is talking to people at her storefront.
I waited for her visitor to leave, and when she did, I went over to the store auntie.
“Thank you. How is business?”
“Okay. I haven’t seen you for a week, so I thought you were dead.” (Auntie)
She said it a little bit mean.
She must have had some kind of information because she did not seem too surprised.
“Rumors are flying around. Recently, Argus has lost his title, and it has made quite the stir.” (Auntie)
“Sounds like the favorite. You know that kind of rumor.”
“Everyone wants to talk about it, so it can’t be helped. They say you’ve been through a lot, haven’t you?” (Auntie)
“That’s not the case.”
We laughed at each other as we talked about trivial things.
We laughed and talked about some new gossip.
It was about Reese and the reward for the cure.
Auntie must have heard it and understood it somehow.
I acknowledged it while smiling.
Then she said a few words to me.
“But who actually made the silver bullet?” (Auntie)
“Everyone is ok. That’s all that matters.”
Auntie looked at me carefully, let out a sigh and said, “Oh, dear,” and did not pursue the matter any further. She seemed to know and understood.
“Then, I’m heading to the next place, so this is it.”
“Take care of your health.” (Auntie)
While waving her hand, she sees me off.
I also waved back.
I walked down the street towards the Hall of Sinners.
It was daytime, but there were some unsavory-looking individuals.
I wondered if it was because there was an entertainment district in the street, but I headed for the Sinner’s House.
I saw a large brick building, four stories high.
There were few windows.
In front of the door stood two men who looked like guards.
They looked strong and well equipped.
“Hello. I have some business to attend to in here.”
“You’re a healer, right?” (Guard)
“May I ask your name?” (Guard)
“Kaoru, Kaoru Ashiya.”
“Oh, come on in.” (Guard)
I was guided along the hallways as I answered some of the guard’s questions.
The halls were modestly made.
There was a counter that looked like a receptionist’s desk. It was where I was led to after telling the guards what I was there for.
It seemed to be a guest room.
This room was gorgeously decorated.
After a short wait, Argus arrived with the person who seems to manage the place.
“Thank you, I’ve been waiting for you. You are Kaoru Ashiya-sama, right?”
As he said this, he held out his hand and reached for a handshake.
He looked about the same age as Argus, maybe a little older.
He was of a stocky build and wore a light shirt and pants.
To which Argus replied to my sort-of inquisitive expression.
“Hey, let me tell you, this guy is stronger than he looks. He is a lot stronger than he looks, so don’t judge him by his appearance. And he’s still active.” (Argus)
“Haha, it’s no big deal. I’m only good enough to have conquered and destroyed about twenty labyrinths.” (Stocky guy)
I tensed slightly.
However, the fact that such a person is in charge of this building is quite reassuring.
If anyone thought of escaping, this person would come flying.
I hope I didn’t have to know about this fact.
“I’m Rigurs. I’m in charge of this Facility.” (Stocky Guy => Rigurs)
“Thanks. I’m here to check on Argus’ recovery.”
“What? Me?” (Argus)
“I’ve heard a lot about you. If you’d like to come with me, you’re more than welcome.”
“That’d be great.” (Rigurs)
Argus asked, unable to follow the conversation.
I was a bit annoyed but taught him about illnesses nonetheless.
About the difference between surgery, treatment, and recovery magic.
I just said that recovery magic is the one that makes you visibly better right away, and treatments are ones that take time to heal.
I also told him not to overdo it.
And that If he wanted to revert and become sick again, he could do so on his own, but Argus said he understood.
I finished the Argus’ checkup.
He was in perfect health and his post-operative progress was good.
I said he would be fine if he continued to take the medicine.
When I said that Argus asked me again and again, “Are you sure about this? When I said that, Argus repeatedly asked me if I was sure. If not, he said, there was no point in losing all his everything.
Thinking that he was a helpless person, I just told Argus to do better and that he would definitely get back to his original position.
Argus, now filled with a sense of ambition, I left Argus and the Hall of Sinners.
This time, Argus can no longer cheat, so he will be doing things fairly. I’m looking forward to seeing how much he will perform. Many people become corrupt when they have no rivals. That’s why I want him to compete with Reese and the others in a fair competition after he has paid his dues.
With this thought in mind, I headed towards Irga-san and the others for the last time.
