Translate’s Note:

First of all, sorry because I have shift yesterday that why I can’t translate.

Second, we’re already pretty done with the most interesting chapter. We will need about 30+ chapter (1 month+) to back to main story quest again.

For about 1 month I will translate other Novels instead of translate Mile everyday. Got to give some love to those Novels as well.

After that we will marathon Mile 1 chapter a day again. Believe me, until the devil arc, you will not a good laugh like Ancient Dragon or Wonder three. And 1 Mile chapter in 1 week isn’t enjoyable.


Mile Chapter 130: In the world, money is not everything! Well, only about 99 percent?

 

A few days later,「Red oath」arrived at a certain city

They haven’t gone outside the Brandel Kingdom yet, but Mile hasn’t been spotted yet, so they didn’t have to worry. Besides, if all they do is run away, everyone will not be able to enjoy a fun journey in this country.

「Shall we stay in this town for a few days?

We have been only walking. If we don’t work a little bit, we will pass through this country without doing any request here at all.

As we are having a journey around the countries, I also want to work in this country as well.

However, Mile, if you worry in this country then we will head to the border」 (Rena)

The three girls reflect themselves on Rena’s words, Red Oath really haven’t received a request for a while.

Then everyone headed straight to the guild and watching the request board…

「Spices?」 (Mile)

As the girls hear Mile’s voice, they are looking at the quest that Mile is looking at.

「Need spice.

The request fee depends on the type and amount of spices you can find.

More details at the meeting」 (Notice)

「… Let’s say we accept it, how do you plan to get spices?

This is the first you go to this city, right? You don’t have any connection or you know  the market price of spice in this area …

Beside, you’re not even that good at cooking, aren’t you?」 (Rena)

Even Rena said so, but Mile just smiled as she replied.

「It’s okay, they only need at little in stock.

Besides, if they want to purchase spices, they usually ask the commercial guild to get it. But right now, this client asked the hunter guild to get it … 」 (Mile)

「That’s true, is there a reason for that?」 (Maevis)

Maevis also agreed with Mile.

「Beside, there isn’t any other interesting requests, not even just a goblin hunting request.

And do something different occasionally, it may be a good experience for us as well, is that okay, everyone?」 (Mile)

Maevis and Pauline nodded to Mile.

「Well, then. The first request in this town will be this!」 (Rena)

When Rena said that and tried to strip off the request form from the request board, but Pauline hurriedly stopped her.

「This kind request, the client may order many kind of spice. So don’t peel it off!

We also need to confirm the conditions at the meeting place before accepting the request」 (Pauline)

「Ah……」 (Rena)

And the 「Red Oath」tell the receptionist that they will go to the meeting place with this request and leave the guild.

「… I think it’s this place」 (Rena)

Rena stops in front of a certain dining hall and says that as she looking up at the signboard.

「Well, for now let’s go in!」 (Rena)

Then Rena opened the door where 「Temporary Close」tag was hung and three girls entered the shop following after her.

[ Oh, this is a very ordinary, no, this place seems a bit more expensive than normal place. And this shop names『Kalamity』? ]  (Mile’s inner thought)

( So『Kalamity』’s owner wants us to… look for (Karamitei)… spice) ?

A Calamity… NOT

Isn’t calamity, disaster, plague are god punish in English! This is bad luck …)

So Mile mutters, but people here don’t know English. It is just a coincidence.

「Excuse me, We’ve received the request at the hunter guild …」 (Maevis)

This time negotiation is Maevis’s role. Because she is the oldest and the most sincere … No, she is the party leader.

The leader of this party is Maevis. Red Oath just occasionally forget about it.

「Oh, will you accept that request?

I often got spices from other city. Still, the next arrival schedule got delayed, so I were in trouble!

… And about where to find it, it isn’t easy to collect it around that, even if you go to a store or a commercial guild, you still can’t get it.

Well, if I can get it so easily, I will not hate to ask through the hunter guild which is more expensive」 (Shop Owner)

The 40-year-old shop owner who came out from the kitchen in the back, told Maevis so with a half pleasure, half anxious expression.

According to the store owner’s explanation, this shop uses luxurious expensive spices… however it’s quite strange from Mile’s previous life’s sense…

Although the price is quite high, as a high-class restaurant, this shop still has considerable profit.

And while the business was still doing well, this shop got a trouble in the last few days. The spice, which is the sale of this store, which transport from a distant city, has been robbed by some bandits in the highway.

Fortunately, because the merchant got robbed in the highway, this owner still didn’t pay the money yet. He had ordered new spices immediately, but it still take a lot of time because the producer is from a city really far away.

And now, there’s no spice in the high-class restaurant, he can’t run the shop.

That’s why he decided to scrape up in the near place.

「I had negotiated with all aristocrats and merchants that have expensive spices with higher price. And thus the price in our shop became more expensive in the past few days.

As for customers, this is the「Shop that use luxury ingredient to make meal」, so it isn’t surprising that they are expensive. People only occasionally eat in our restaurant a few times a year away.

Now that I have already raked up from nearby place, and the spices still don’t arrive yet. 」

It was quite a request with high hurdles.

And everyone thinks that it’s a big problem for ordinary hunters, even「Red oath」three girls also think like that.

Yes, it is 「three girls」and it was 「for ordinary hunters」

「Because this request is quite special, I think we must have some request condition for it… 」 (Pauline)

Pauline is taking the initiative to make a deal with shopkeeper.

As a result, it’s difficult to decide the request fee until the shopkeeper know the type, quality, quantity, etc. of the spice. So Red Oath and the shopkeeper agreed with the purchase method rather than the request fee method.

However there’s a limit of purchase. No matter how much the shop owner wants spices, he still can’t buy too much expensive spice which is about 1.5 times the normal price. It will affect the store’s profit in the long run.

And as a result of the negotiations, it is treated as a difficult request, and even if the 「Red Oath」fails this request, there’s no loss for the store, this request is also simultaneously done by other hunters as well.

Even if Red Oath fails, there will be no penalty fee or points.

And in that case, the request will not be treated as failure, but as 「request completed with zero achievement」

After leaving the luxury Restaurant「Kalamity」Red Oath returned to the Hunter Guild and reported to the receptionist.

Then the girls are heading to the forest near the city.

「…, Pauline, why did you care about the conditions at the time we failed request so much?

You should know that, we always have a considerable amount of spices in my storage. At worst, we can use it to avoid failure…」 (Mile)

「It’s insurance, insurance!」 (Pauline)

「Huh……」 (Mile)

Mile is surprised, to think there was already the concept of 「insurance」in this world.

Of course, it was not the same thing like in modern Earth, but a role of mutual society.

Pauline said that word, and that’s why they don’t have to worry about failure this time. Meanwhile Mile is in her own world again.

  1. Thanks for the chapter. I think the author mentioned something about getting translated in English next year through Amazon. I cant say for sure since it was google translated. Who knows what that note might of said. I will miss the average girl daily dose, looking forward to Nov.
    『平均値』、遂に世界規模の作品になる!!(^^)/
    以前、韓国語版の出版により国際的作品となりました『平均値』ですが、何と、今度はA5版、いやいや、英語版の出版が決定!(^^)/
    既にAmazonで予約受付が始まっており、「Funa average」で検索すれば、一発ヒットします。
    来年6月に1巻、7月にコミックス1巻、8月に2巻、以後、毎月出るようです。勿論、表紙の画像はまだついていません。
    これで、外国人のお友達にも勧められるので、安心です。(^^)/
    ……しかし、駄洒落の部分はどう訳されているのだろうか。
    それを考えると、夜も眠れない……。(^^ゞ

  2. so a temporary bye bye with Red Oath. See you in 1 month.
    It’s fine though. I also like your other translating novel.

    I have a feeling that rather than occasionally forgetting it, they occasionally remember it instead.
    Maevis we will(occasionally) remember you in their stead.

  4. Suggestion:
    However, “if”->”” Mile, if you worry in this country then we will head to the border」 (Rena)

    This is the first “”->”time” you go to this city, right? You don’t have any “connexion or”->”connection and neither” you know the market price of spice in this area …

    “And”->”Let’s” do something different occasionally, it may be a good experience

    As for customers, this is the「Shop that use luxury “ingridient”->”ingredient” to make meal」

    It was quite a request with high “hurds”->”hurdles”.

  5. Dear translator-san,

    I really like your work and translation, so I have a small suggestion for you. I think it would improve your translation, if you ciuld spend a little time refreshing your gerunds. It’s a common mistake in your chapters, but it is an easy-to-fix one.
    I hope you don’t see it as a criticism, i just would like to help.

    Here is a short explanation and you can research the topic more by googling or youtube, i am sure there are a lot of videos about it.

    Wish you a nice day,
    Alex
