Mile Chapter 151: Request
Approximately one hour after the second bell at night, the owner came to bring back Faryl.
The owner opened the door after knocking once, as he looked at the interior, his eyes opened wide with surprise.
What reflects before his eyes were Faryl playing with the 4 girls and laughing really happy.
「No way, Faryl is always shy of strangers, how could this happen…」(Owner)
Yes, to stay at this inn, all the guests must not discriminate or disturb Faryl, who is clearly inheriting the beastkin’s blood.
Otherwise, they would leave the inn just by looking at Faryl sitting at the reception desk or got chased out by the owner.
But even if those guests weren’t discriminating against beastkin, they were at most acquaintance level, just like the Reni-chan with other customers. But Mile and other girls were at a familiar level … that was neither customers nor guests … No, no, it’s still a little different from a friendly relationship.
Well, Reni-chan is already 10 years old when Faryl is still 6 years old. She hadn’t heard many stories about the world still love playing so she is really happy, or so it seems…
Anyway, before the owner’s eyes was his daughter, laughing with people other than the family’s members. And she laughed really happy, a scene the owner has never seen before.
His daughter was shy so there’s no way she would laugh like this in front of a stranger, but why even when there were only family’s members, he has never seen his daughter laughing happy like this.
Even though the inn’s work is very busy, there might be some problems with how he takes care of his daughter. The Owner thought so.
When the Mile and other girls went down to the first floor for meals, the owner seems to be in the kitchen. Faryl-chan and 2 boys that were somewhat older, were serving and cleaning up in the cafeteria.
(Are those two Faryl’s brothers? Is the mother also in the kitchen?) (Mile)
As Mile was looking at the children, she realized the boys looked like average people.
Mile wanted to ask a question, but it wasn’t the time to pry at the busy breakfast time.
Unlike at dinner time, breakfast is the time that people rush to have a meal before working. It was quite busy even they were already preparing last night.
It wasn’t good to cause employees any more trouble for extra things like this. The girls thought they’d better be a good customer and eat quietly on a table.
Mile tilted her head again.
She glanced at a woman at the back of the kitchen.
Perhaps, that was the lady owner or rather the mother of Faryl-chan.
However, the woman also looked like an average human being.
Mile already got a glimpse of it, Faryl maybe a genetic heritage, and there may be some circumstances… etc
Miles decided not to look at anything and keeps on eating in silent.
The 4 girls returned to the room, took their dummy baggage and left the room. It is in a state of completely withdrawing from the room.
The girls planned to stay in this hotel tonight, but depending on the work they received, they might have to leave this city a day or two.
In preparation for that, the girls didn’t leave any luggage, they planned to pay the fee for the first night.
「Could we have the bill please」(Rena)
「Ehhh!? Onee-chan, you are leaving!?」(Faryl)
Faryl was surprised by Rena ‘s words and looked sad. Maevis explained from the side in a hurry.
「No, we only go out to check requests.
If there’s no good request or a request to leave the city, we will stay here tonight and even if we leave the city for request, we will come back again after we done」(Maevis)
Faryl was relieved by listening to it.
Apparently, she has grown an attachment to 『Red Oath』 girls.
(Keikaku Doori) (Mile) (T.N: in case you don’t know this meme, it means 「Just according to the plan」)
Mile was thinking just like the god of the New World.
Suddenly she spotted the book placed on the counter and there was some writing in the blank spaces next to where Mile and other girls’ name were written.
Perhaps Faryl would like to make a (Death) note.
Mile was wondering what Faryl was writing and reading it …
Maevis is tall and handsome but there are no breasts. Maybe.
Rena seems to be kinky. Maybe she has mixed carnivore beastkin’s blood. The same as me.
I feel Pauline is a bad girl. Probably.
Mile is petite. Probably.
(Uu, shut up!) (Mile)
[I’m not petite, I’m just average of all humans!]
Although Mile wanted to retort, of course, she could never do that with a 6 years old girl.
However, if Rena or Pauline read this, it would be a problem.
Mile silent cast wind turning to the next page of the guest book, hiding the page where their name was written.
(But for her to realize Pauline’s nature! She is really amazing, or is it beastkin’s instinct?) (Mile)
And, after completing the payment, 『Red oath』party went to the Hunter Guild’s Capital branch.
「We are 『Red oath』, a C-rank hunter party that was registered in the Tyrus Kingdom’s hunter guild branch.
In order to gain experience, we are going on a journey of learning and we are planning to stay in this town for a while. Please take care of us from now on」(Maevis)
「Oh, nice to meet you, I’m Felicia, the receptionist.
Welcome to the Chaleiraz Kingdom!」(Felicia)
When Maevis reported that the 『Red oath』will work based on this city for a while at the counter, the receptionist replied with a full smile.
「If you like, we will let the person in charge explain about this city and about monsters, collecting spots … etc. So do you want to hear it?」(Felicia)
「… Is there a charge?」(Pauline)
「Oh, no. Because the guild is supposed to give hunters various explanations and materials such as maps of the neighborhood freely for those who come from afar and are active in this city for a while.
We want to prevent unnecessary troubles in advance because that is also the work of the guild staff」(Felicia)
If it was free, then no-one would complain. Pauline was the one asking but everyone agreed with that.
A lot of gazes was directed to the 『Red oath』that received an explanation from the person in charge in the table for consultation.
(Hunters’ POV, I guess)
[ A slender beauty that looks like 17 to 18 years old. (Maevis 16 years old)
Big tits beautiful that looks like 16 to 17 years old. (Pauline 14 years old)
2 pretty girls that are around 12 to 13 years old. (Rena 15 years old, Mile 13 years old)
And the two of them are precious mages.
Furthermore, for their information, that girl just said they are a C-rank party. So either both adults are B rank and 2 children are D rank or 1 adult is B rank 2 C-rank and 1-D rank. ]
In this country, there’s no hunter training school, it would be strange for girls aged 12 to 13 to be a C-rank hunter. No, even in Tyrus kingdom where there is a training school, such girls are still super rare.
Unless they have above average (special) talent or ability. Yes, just like powerful magical talent.
Also, it’s unlikely for beautiful women under 20 years old to be B rank hunter.
That『Mithril Roar』party have both ability and history working to reach B rank except their leader Guren. It’s not a rank that average (normal) young girl can reach.
In other words, this party is a 『Young but have a special talent, all beautiful girls, with no men』party, which would make bards want to sing a song or poetry about them.
In the Tyrus Kingdom, the majority of hunters based in the capital already saw that graduation test. So, most people knew the extraordinary ability as a newcomer of 『Red Oath』 so there would be no hunters dare to approach the girls when they are weaker even though they may have a higher rank.
Besides, if the hunters did something wrong, a warning would likely to hand down from the upper side.
『Upper side』. Yes, like high-rank hunters, the guild official and lastly royal palace.
And in the end, it was decided as an unspoken rule 『Let’s just watch over them』
However, in places that have not under such pressure, the 『Red oath』seemed too delicious for other hunters to let them pass.
And now, here at the Hunter Guild Vanorak Capital city Branch, all of the parties who were in the guild at that time, mostly men, measured the timing to talk with the 『Red oath』
And after the guild staff’s explanation for the 『Red oath』was over, Mile and other girls began to check the information board article. Even they wanted to talk but if they get in the way, the girls’ impression about them would be worse, There was nothing they can do but wait.
After the information board, 『Red oath』began to check the request board.
This is the moment that the 『Red oath』decides which request they will receive and talk with the receptionist. Then the receptionist will give advice because the girls don’t know well about the hunting ground. She will tell the girls about whether they should do a joint request from the beginning …
Most of the parties that were aiming for 『Red oath』thought of similar things. And because they knew each other, there would be an intense war between hunters.
At that time, Mile unexpectedly raised her voice.
「What’s wrong, suddenly yell…」(Rena)
When Rena asked so, Mile pointed to one of the request forms on the board.
『Survey Request: Investigation of a group that conducts suspicious behavior in a Rocky Golem mountain. In some cases, this would become a captivity or subjugation request』 (NOTICE)
4 girls looked at the request and looked at themselves in the face.
In their mind, they remembered the appearance of the beastkins at the ruins before.
It seems that this suspicious group was also working for sometime around here.
And, Rena peeled off the request from the board.
「… Is it okay?」(Mile)
Mile was somewhat hesitant asking Rena.
「Well, this is one of the purposes of our journey after all.
Well, it may be just a different thing that has nothing to do with what we are looking for.
And even if that’s the case, we will still have no trouble with only beastkins.
Besides, if that really come out again, we will give out the names from the last time, I feel that they likely agree to have a talk.
But I don’t think a coincidence will happen so often」(Rena)
Heard Rena’s words, Maevis and Pauline also nodded.
Last time that came out, even though Mile wasn’t sure if this time would also go well.
She thought so, but Mile wanted to investigate this request, so she silently nodded as well.
The payment for this request is reasonable, but since it is an uncertain request content that people can’t estimate the degree of danger and people can’t even sure if they can meet the target party, it was a request that no one wanted to accept.
However, it looks like 『Red oath』is receiving it, the hunters who were trying to bring a joint party were puzzled as the girls head for receptionist.
Things didn’t go according to the plan.
And one thing, the girls had forgotten about the Ancient Dragon’s word at that time 『In order to check the situation of many places, we asked the devils and beastkins to do the investigations at various places in our instead』and thought that the opponent this time was also beastkins. Everyone in the 『Red oath』thought so.
