Mile Chapter 104: And again to the forest

 

「The lord is never a bad person.

Well, as a noble it’s normal he has pride and ambition. But at least he has consideration for citizen and take care of them …」(Guild Master)

(Well, I guess it’s just like 「Taking care of livestock」.

To get tastier milk and flesh …) (Mile)

It was what Mile thought as she listen to the guild master’s story, but of course she didn’t say it out loud.

「And of course, this is also for the development of his territory and his own luxury, money …, greed … So he wants to collect it」(Guild Master)

From Guild Master’s word, Red Oath are doubtful that the Guild Master dislikes the lord.

「So, he had a nomination quest for you girls.

You know the whereabouts of the beastkins and you can also come in and out of there.

You have a high chance of success and survival chance for this quest」(Guild Master)

It’s an honor for hunter to receive a nomination request from the lord.

It means that the country recognized their proficiency and credibility.

It’s only lower than the nomination request from the royal family.

If that was an ordinary hunter, he will be happy like crazy to hear that from the guild master and accept right away.

Yes, if that was just an 「Ordinary hunter」…

「So, what is the requested content?」(Rena)

Rena confirmed to the guild master calmly.

「Well, confirm the movement of the beastkins, confirm what they are searching for at the excavation.

And if it’s possible, take it from the beastkins」(Guild Master)

「…………」(Red Oath)

『Red Oath』are silent.

「Could I ask you one thing?」(Mile)

「Yes, what is it?」(Guild Master)

Mile asked the guild master.

「Isn’t that just theft, you want us to become thieves?」(Mile)

「Huh…?」(Guild Master)

Guild Master is agape with what Mile pointed out.

「No, it isn’t. Because it’s in our territory …」(Guild Master)

「But, that forest isn’t managed by the Lord, is it?

It’s just some beastkins gathered or hunted over there to acquire things by themselves.

Don’t those things already become theirs?

It’s a criminal act to capture our hunters. But unless we heard the decision from the country, can we really decide how to deal with the beastkins by ourselves?

And is there any problem with the collecting activities the beastkins are doing?

And isn’t it also a criminal act when you rob what they discover?」(Mile)

「…………」(Guild Master)

Mining a large amount of arbitrary reserve resources of other countries is a big problem, it’s a diplomatic problem.

However, it is not a problem for civilians to collect small materials and treasure hunt in other countries.

If they are banned, hunters will not be able to move across countries.

This time, the beastkins seem to be doing a large-scale excavation, but it was 「digging to find something」and it wasn’t  「mining a lot of resources」

So, as a result of robbing the excavated 「A small amount of harvest」, who is the bad guy here …

「Well, that’s …」(Guild Master)

Hearing the unexpected point, Guild Master can’t say anything back.

「Can I consult within a group for a moment?」(Mile)

Mile asked and with the approval of the guild master. Red Oath moved to the next room.

And a few minutes later, 4 girls came back to the guild master room again.

「We decided to accept it as a result of consultation」(Mile)

After hearing that, the Guild Master had a sigh of relief.

It is natural. To think the request of nomination from the lord may be refused.

Not only that would worsen the mood of the lord.

This branch will be judged as incapable and unreliable branch that refuses the nomination request from the lord, and that’s just a beginner party.

If this news got out, this branch may become the laughing stock for neighboring guild and hunters.

「Normally, no hunters would refuse a「Nomination request」that was extra money and point」. Unless that request is dangerous or there’s「something」undesirable.

In her past life, Mile also read fantasy novels well.

So she considers the possibility that the purpose of excavation is a pattern such as 「Resurrection of the demon kingdom」or 「Solving the seal of the evil spirit」

And of course, 3 girls have been listening to various stories from Mile for nearly a year also consider that.

Everyone decided to undertake this nomination request.

Of course, that was because the Nomination request from the lord is delicious as a promotion point to B ranking, which also improves the credibility of the party.

And the last reason is: When 『Red Oath』refused, another party would be accepting it instead.

Because they are worried that the other party would be captured or killed by beastkins.

Even the girls know that they are not responsible for anything but it would leave a bad after taste.

And, as an extra reason is 「To get back the confiscated hunters’s weapons」

… Why are the girls fond of doing in troublesome job?

Well, but that was  how『Red Oath』is.

「Ah, of course.

It doesn’t really matter with that.

The lord is also not seriously thinking that 4 new hunter girls can take back the treasure, that’s why「if possible 」was attached」(Guild Master)

Guild Master was relieved that Red Oath accept the request but he notice that he forgets to mention important things.

「Oh, that’s because Doctor Kulereia will accompany you, so please escort and take care of her」(Guild Master)

「Wh, what was that! I have not heard!」(Rena)

Rena protests, but Maevis, Pauline and Mile remained calm.

Do you think for what reasons that Doctor Kulereia stay here?

It was only Rena who didn’t notice.

It’s not strange to be accompanied by a scholar because where they are heading is an excavation site.

Doctor Kulereia who is an elf and a scholar who probably is an important person. And she was the main member of the first investigation team.

「And the lord seems preparing some kind of reinforcement even if it’s not ready yet. It will catch up with you later …」(Guild Master)

Whether it is really a reinforcement or not,『Red Oath』think its purpose is to monitor the process of getting the treasure.

What everyone’s thinking about are「war soldiers」

「I wonder what kind of reinforcement are they … how many people will help?」(Rena)

Guild Master awkwardly answered Rena’s question.

「… Only one」(Guild Master)

「Haaa?」(Red Oath)

「… Yes, only one …」(Guild Master)

He re-confirmed it.

Well, that person is just a watchman. He may get in the way and won’t be useful.

Maybe his action has nothing to do with helping the 『Red Oath』, only to report the results.

It would be better if we don’t have.

(…let’s shake it off then) (Red Oath)

4 girls were thinking about the same thing.

After that, the girls talking with the guild master a little more.

And everyone started departing immediately.

Actually, the girls wanted to relax for about a day, but time was important for this request.

If they start soon, they might avoid the 2nd chasing beastkins party that’s waiting to recover. And of course, those beastkins might not inform the main camp in the excavation site yet.

Still, if those beastkins still can’t move with the broken feets, the main camp in the excavation site may find it strange and dispatch some more rescue beastkins.

Anyway, if the girls want to intrude the camp, they should start as soon as possible.

Doctor Kulereia seemed to be preparing in anticipation from last night.

And, of course, 『Red Oath』that have all goods in Mile’s「Storage」can start immediately.

「Well, let’s go!」(Rena)

「Oh!」(Mile + Pauline + Maevis)

「… …. Oh!」 (Kulereia)

3 girls reply to Rena right away.

And a little later, Doctor Kulereia also replies.

「…Maevis, here you are …」(Mile)

After leaving the town, Mile gently came to Maevis.

「This is……」(Maevis)

「Yes, it’s an additional part of the …. just in case … only just in case …

If you use it, I will replenish it again, so please do not hesitate too much.

If you don’t use it, we will face hardships in emergency, Okay …」(Mile)

「I got it, thank you for letting me use it …」(Maevis)

Maevis received 3 capsule shaped containers and put them in her pocket.

This makes a total 5 of dubious capsules.

If she doesn’t use it early, Mile will be replenishing more and more and the pocket will become bad.

Maevis is in trouble with such a feeling …


Translator’s note:

Fu fu, I won’t spoiler what those capsules doing.

  1. Suggestion:
    「The lord “owner”->(delete) is never a bad person.

    「Isn’t that just “plagiarism”-> “same as what beastkin doing”(copy idea of beastkin get treasure from site), you want us to become thieves?

    some kind of reinforcement even “”->”if” it’s not ready yet.

    Typo:
    What everyone “thinkking”->thinking

    • Thank you.

      But
      plagiarism => same as what beastkin doing
      is somewhat wrong.

      Beastkin discover the site, so they have the right for the treasure there.
      Just like Hunter / Adventurers clear a dungeon will get the treasure themselves.

      What Red Oath will do in the request is purely steal other hardword.

      Not the SAME with the legal work (digging treasure) that the beastkins doing.

      The only illegal is the beastkins kidnap hunters.

      • Uhm, i think, “theft” sounds a bit better since plagiarism=copying other’s work and saying that it’s yours. And theft is well, stealing stuff.

      • The basic operative term in English is “claim-jumping”. Maybe not in the strict legal sense (since there is no system of filing claims), but in general terms it means going to a location where someone is actively trying to retrieve a thing of value trying to get it first.

  3. Hello Loli O Mamoritai, I don’t want to take up too much of your time, and you don’t need to approve this comment, but one of my editors would like to volunteer to edit the future average abilities chapters that you translate. He would also be willing edit past chapters, but it would need to be talked over at a later date. I also know that another one of my editors attempted to email you, and might have appeared shady. That is my fault for not paying close attention to what he said. Regardless, there are no strings attached to this, my editor simply wants to improve all of the chapters that you have done. If you want to talk to the editor in question(that would like to work on the chapters), this is his email: editormatty1@gmail.com.

    • And the elf seems more of a researcher than a medical doctor. Also, you can only be called a doctor if you studied medicine or have a doctorate.

If a department Doctor of Philosophy ( PhD ), Doctor of Science (DSc / ScD), Doctor of Letters (DLitt), Doctor of Education (EdD), Doctor of Business Administration (DBA), Doctor of Management (DM). The doctoral degree in daily life is combined with the surname and is called a doctor. And Dr. English is the same doctor as Doctor. Basically, the doctoral thesis must contain innovative and in-depth content in this field and obtain a doctorate by peer review.

The two degree holders can not claim to have a doctorate.
