Sorry, I just found Asley Manga, Re-kan manga Blend-S manga and a lot of funny 4-Koma manga on Niconico site.
Manga is harder and takes longer to translate than the novel
That’s why it was long to release Mile again.
Please check it out
Mile Chapter 133: Just as we thought…
「I, for one, know the market price of pepper, what is the basis for that price?」(Pauline)
Although shopkeeper seemed to be a little stunned by Pauline’s emotionless expression, he judged she was just a little girl and immediately replied.
「There is no original form of chili peppers and it is already crushed to powder so it becomes worthless.
Besides, it’s just too painful, it has no taste or flavor as a pepper.
As the price of bad products, its price must below the original. In fact, my price is already higher than its value.
Well, I bothered you with this request, so I thought that I would like to add a little bonus for you.
Pauline staring at the laughing shopkeeper with cold eyes.
「What about the value point of the pungent taste is strong and the amount used is small?」(Pauline)
「Oh, is that such an error, isn’t it just add a little bit varieties?」(Shopkeeper)
「How much are you going to purchase?」(Pauline)
「You guys, you aren’t supposed to have so much money buying them, you probably stole it somewhere or bought it cheaply, right?
Do not complain, give it to me quickly, and let me know the purchase route!」(Shopkeeper)
「Mile, take it back!」(Rena)
Rena ordered Mile to take it back and Mile quickly stored the wooden basin filled with spices.
And shopkeeper agape with wooden basin which disappeared instantly.
「Okay then, there is no achievement this time」(Rena)
With the 『Red Oath』 say so, the shopkeeper protests in panic.
「Wait! Wait, that’s what I asked for …」(Shopkeeper)
「… we can’t reach an agreement with such a price, and our contract is over without a penalty for each other.
Originally such a contract should have been submitted through the guild」(Pauline)
A shop owner was refuted by Pauline and panicked.
「No, no, I only have ten gold coins in my hand now! I never thought that it would be possible to get such a large mass.
I can’t have such a large sum of money in the shop all the time. If I do such a thing, I will be attacked by thieves. I have to store it in the commercial guild and it will take a while to take it/money out!
So please come back in the evening. I will prepare the money!」(Shopkeeper)
While thinking so, the 『Red oath』acknowledged it and withdrew.
「… What do you think?」(Mile)
「It’s useless, after all, he didn’t look like he would be willing to pay much more..
At most, he will raise the price a little and also will try to get the information about the source of spices」(Pauline)
Pauline answers Mile’s question while shrugging her shoulders.
「He paid attention to the taste and flavor really like a cook… but, oh well.
Although I was willing to sell cheaper than the market price if he didn’t forcibly ask about the source and fixed that attitude of his.
Our spices’ intensity is certainly amazing, but its flavor, fragrance, usability and so on are limited」(Mile)
「Well, humans will get greedy in front of big money」(Pauline)
Rena’s eyes opened wide while glancing at Pauline who said so to Mile.
「Although I am going to wait till evening, but I feel like we are going to waste our time」(Pauline)
That said Pauline made a tired face.
「Then, in order to make effective use of time, shall we go for hunting somewhere until evening?」(Maevis)
「「「Oh!」」」(Mile + Rena + Pauline)
Everyone agreed to Maevis’ suggestion.
*** Evening ***
The 『Red oath』 came to the luxury cafeteria 『Kalamity』again, the shopkeeper was sitting at the table seat in the shop waiting in.
「Then, let’s continue the negotiations from the morning.
After all, I have not heard the new price yet.
But this time, would you please give out your best offer at the beginning?」(Pauline)
Pauline’s voice was cold. She didn’t think that this shopkeeper is a 『good counterparty』anymore.
「Before that, bring out the spices out. It’s a lot of money, I don’t after you take money to tell me something like『I have sold to another shop』」(Shopkeeper)
Pauline nodded, Mile brought out a wooden tub filled with spices from the item box and put it on the table.
After the shop owner saw it, he smiled and told the girls.
「Well, you must tell me the origin and the purchase route of this.
I’ll pay 11 gold coins for this together with that information」(Shopkeeper)
「「「「Haaaaaa …」」」」(Red Oath)
The four girl raise their voice because of their deep feelings.
Again, it was a waste of time.
When 『Red oath』tried to withdraw, the shopkeeper signaled with his hands with *pan~ pan~* (SFX)
And then, the inner door of the shop opened, from there 5 hunter-like men from around 30 to 40 years old appeared.
The men got in a position with 2 people to close off the entrance and the three people protecting shopkeeper.
「I thought about finishing it peacefully, but it would be no use with that kind of attitude.
Catch ‘em all! 」(Shopkeeper)
「「「「Haaaaaa … …」」」」(Red Oath)
「No, even if you are our client, the girls didn’t do any harm to you.
You want us to catch them just because the deal ends up with failure?
If we do such a thing, we will become criminals …」(Hunter Leader)
Apparently, these men seem to be hired through the guild. They must have been ordinary hunters.
「These girls are the thieves who attacked the wagon!
The thing here is the spices that have been robbed.
Because they brought it here to sell it to me, the buyer, I attempted to buy spices back for 11 gold coins.
But it failed so I decided to capture and hand them over to the guards.
Okay, catch ‘em all!」(Shopkeeper)
Even if the shopkeeper says so, it was just a one-sided accusation, if it turns out to be a mistake, it will be serious.
Especially when the said persons are a group of young girls.
It would be a disgrace and they may lose their hunter qualification.
That’s why they couldn’t afford to be hasty.
「We were hired as the guards, there is no reason to seize the young girls who don’t appear to hurt you, even if they are thieves.
Well, even if they are really bandits, we may get the reward fee but unless they are wanted we will not do anything.
Or we may lose our fame as the『good hunter』…
So, is there any evidence?」(Hunter Leader)
After the shopkeeper heard so, he pointed at a wooden basin placed on the table.
「This is it! they are the spices I ordered from a remote country that was robbed by the bandits!」(Shopkeeper)
The hunter leader heard so, looked toward Mile’s group.
「About what he said, is that true?」(Hunter Leader)
Bun Bun Bun! (SFX)
The 4 girls shaking their heads together.
「In the first place, they are special spices that we got, I don’t think they will be available elsewhere.
Please check with the shops where he ordered.
It may take time to check with the supplier, but if you inquire a neighboring shop or a commercial guild, they will tell you whether there are such shops, whether such product has been on the market or not.
I think that you can tell immediately whether it was used at this store ever before though」(Mile)
After they heard Mile’s words, the hunters turn their eyes to the shopkeeper.
「Then, the supplier of the ingredients is the secret of the shop! How can I speak about it!
What about you guys talking to your suppliers to prove your innocence!」(Shopkeeper)
「Huh? You said that yourself, that supplier is the trade secret, and now you demand us to speak?」(Mile)
Mile replied so with a shocked face. And the hunters have bitter smiles.
「So, you said that your spices were robbed by bandits.
And yesterday morning, we were told that you had been robbed before you received it, so you have not paid the money for the spices yet.
Well, they aren’t yours, are they? What is the right you to claim them on?」(Mile)
Hunters looked at the shopkeeper who had the mouth opened wide amazed by Mile’s words.
「Besides, have you really ordered so much in the first place? Have you really ordered spices with the quantities like in this wooden container?」(Mile)
「Yes, I have ordered 5 kilograms, exactly that match as you have here!」(Shopkeeper)
The shopkeeper’s reply caused Mile to smirk.
「Well, then that just means they weren’t really yours!」(Mile)
After that Mile took out a big amount of spices in various containers one after the other from the item box and arranged on the table. A big amount of spices in various containers.
「「「「「「Eeeeeeeeeeeeeh!」」」」」」(Hunters + Shopkeeper)
Not only the shop owner but also the hunters gave a surprised scream.
「「「「「「This is storage magic!」」」」」(5 Hunters)
「It has proved that these spices have not been taken from said cart, right?」(Mile)
The hunters nodded with cold sweat thankful that they avoided a big mistake.
