Mile Chapter 328: B Rank Hunter Party 1
『Who are you?』(Mile)
『Ah, my bad.
I’m just a hunter from the next table.
Little girls, even though you are young and you already stay at this inn.
But I was a little worried about you criticizing against the delicious food of this place so I called out to you.
Ahaha. My bad.』(Male Hunter)
The male hunter told Mile so as he laughed. Is he about 30 years old? And at his table, there were four men and women, they seemed to be his party members.
For them to use this inn, they are probably a rather high-rank party to spend money like this. Usually, only rank B or higher are staying here. C rank party normally can’t stay here unless their members are including a high rank noble or rich merchant. It’s something like “entertain their members to encourage them” or “everyone enjoys without care when they’re still young”.
No, of course, there are people who are seriously aiming to be decent hunters within the nobility and the rich people. But such people will try to cover their daily living expenses only by their earning, so they won’t stay in such a high priced inn. Except for those who have achieved B rank or better.
And all of these people couldn’t be seen as the sons or daughters of nobles and rich merchants.
They seem to have left their weapons in their room so people won’t know their class (job type) by looking at it. But if judging only by appearance, the two men seems to be Vanguards, one man seems to be middle guard, and two women who seem to be a rearguard. They seem to be in their late-20s and mid-30s. A well-balanced and typical party structure.
…No, of course, we can’t exclude the possibility that Muscle Man is a magician or that slim and delicate Woman is a swordsman.
This means they aren’t an “everyone enjoys without a care when they’re still young” party, but a party with considerable ability. Besides, they didn’t entangle in a malicious way like the template, newbie bullying.
Really talented people can’t afford the time to get involved or harass their subordinates. That’s the action taken only by the weak who aren’t confident in themselves and want to feel superior when they make a fool out of someone.
『I’m sorry, this idiot is causing you trouble…
But newbie like you girls shouldn’t stay at such a high price inn.
Even if you want to take a bath or not want to get disturbed by a strange man, you still waste a lot of your party fund…』(Male hunter in party)
『Besides, scoring the food here only 70 points is too extravagant!
If you do that, you can’t endure the long-term camps while traveling and will get a lot of problems because you haven’t tried to save money.
The travel might last a few weeks, you can only eat bread that is hard like stone, a dry soup with a light taste, and dried meat.
Anyway, I’m not impressed about how the newbie spent too much.
He might be rude but he just wanted to not to take it for granted!』(Female hunter in party)
A swordsman or a man who seems to be a swordsman and a woman who seems to be a magician together the man who first called out, expected a phrase like “Thank you for guidance, seniors (Senpai)”.
Rather than thinking for their juniors (Kouhai), they seem more like thinking “I’m cool, teaching young children!” It’s like a performance for self-satisfaction.
No, they are sure it will be good for newcomers. Perhaps they aren’t so bad.
… but their Doya (smug) face was a little annoying.
Rena is angry.
An unreasonable high-priority theory that interrupts their talk without permission and has a doya face.
It is a taboo to Rena: “Looked down on others thinking they are at the top”, calling her “Small Tits Girl” or “Petite-chan”, and “Stroke her Head”.
『… Thanks for the extra care!』(Rena)
Beginners receive a lesson from the seniors and thank them for their gratitude.
After becoming B-rank, there were many patterns, and they thought that they would get a “thank you for giving guidance to their juniors”, so they were surprised with Rena’s unexpected reaction.
The other three, Maevis, Pauline, and Mile also didn’t hold down the angry Rena …
*Blue vein* *Snapped*……
Or rather, they were angry.
Prepared for death, seeing their friend lost an arm, and exhausted when returning.
At last, they were able to have fun chatting among friends while eating delicious food, so they wanted to enjoy themselves. To think some random hunter interrupted their talk and acted high and mighty giving them a lesson.
As expected, even the friendly Maevis and Mile were also angry.
Pauline? ………… Hahaha.
『Mile, is this the so-called “becoming aged” that Mile used to talk about?』(Maevis)
No way, it’s a curse from Mavis. It’s also quite painful for a party that has two unmarried women.
『Hunters are all about skills and achievements.
To make a fool out of other people judging by their appearance and telling them how to spend money when you can’t even measure the power of the other party is like making a fool of yourself.
Moreover, they can’t even think that “because the other party has enough money, they just use it according to their income”
A common mistake for those who can only measure things on their own scale』(Pauline)
Pauline, apparently can’t stand being stumped on how to use her money.
『Well, we are only children, making mistakes or doing foolish things are still acceptable. But to think that even people over 20 years old… Tch tch tch…』(Mile)
There was no mercy.
Mile has a fast turning head and loves playing with words. If Mile is seriously trying to overthrow others, her words have the power like a californium nuclear bullet shot at a firing speed of an automatic rifle.
…Isn’t this bad luck or bad timing…?
Usually, girls other than Rena won’t get angry and make things worse. No matter how annoying, they weren’t so malicious. At worst, they would just bow down and calm Rena while laughing.
However, now they have exhausted their bodies and soul. Even after a short sleep, they were only able to rest their body a little. And when they were trying to heal their exhausted heart in a conversation with their friends.
Even if others can only see it as a normal conversation within a friend …
In other words, for the hunters next table, they wanted to scratch the bottom of the kitten’s chin, but it wasn’t a kitten, but an adult tiny tiger. It was unfortunate enough to correspond to the place where it grew.
Exactly as bad as “I was bitten by a stray dog”.
However, because they approached themselves and offered their hand, they couldn’t complain because they were bitten.
Although it wasn’t that bad, the hunters were struck by unexpected damage.
… In particular, the damage on two unmarried women was serious.
If this is a normal inn, the angry hunters would stand up and have a commotion.
As expected of a high-class inn that only “senior hunters can afford to pay“, they behaved themselves.
The hunters are finally aware that they have said unnecessary things and hurt the young hunters’ feelings, so they just silently listened.
The veteran hunters had a generous and adult response against the young hunters.
Many of the other customers in the cafeteria are merchants mainly from other cities. They felt sorry for the surprised hunters, they kept eating silently.
Rena’s group finally calmed down and looked around, they realized that they were saying something wrong.
Even though they didn’t start a fight, with their terrible words, they have made other people uncomfortable just because they were in a bad mood. Even in a place where everyone tried to have a good time.
It was against Mile’s meal policy and, of course, other three also felt shameful.
『『『『I’m sorry……』』』』(Red Oath)
Four people apologized.
And the hunters lightly waved their hand.
『No, I was also a little insensitive. I’m sorry…』(Male Hunter)
Apparently, it seemed that everyone was able to reconcile safely.
