「That’s right.
They have been living in human cities.
Young… Loli Baba… no, Elf Women.
It seemed like they wanted to return to the Elf village after a long time…」(Guild Master)

「Nominal? So is there another real reason?」(Meavis)

It is natural to be worried if the Guild Master talks like that.
So, of course, even the obedient Maevis also questions the Guild Master.

Then…

「Ah. Nothing, it seems to be matchmaking」(Guild Master)

「「「「…………」」」」(Red Oath)

「Young elf wife?」(Mile)

「All of them are still single!」(Guild Master)

Mile “Boke” and the Guild Master “Tsukomi”.

It seems that she is quite well-trained.

Was there such a collection of books in her parent’s home of her past life… 

「Anyway, only a few elves live in the human city. It’s even less when it comes to unmarried Elf women.
And as you know, the long-lived, warm, and thoughtful elves are respected by us humans and are an important alliance race as a “human species” including dwarves.
It would be big trouble if something happened to them while they are still traveling in the human territory realm on the way home.
…Do you understand what this means?」(Guild Master)

Nod* Nod* Nod (Koku Koku Koku)

「That is why. Please accept this request」(Guild Master)

While applying pressure that he won’t take “no” for an answer, the Guild Master staring at Red Oath after saying that.
He would be desperate if the girls refused this request…

「Uhm, is this the order from Guild Master?」(Mile)

But right there, Mile asked a “Simple question”.

「No, isn’t it the nomination from the elves themselves?
Even if they are V.I.P to all human beings,
Why should one Guild Master bear the heavy burden and responsibility for a small amount of commission fee?
I’m neither a lord nor a king…」(Guild Master)

「「「「True enough~!!」」」」(Red Oath)

* * *

On the way back from the Guild Branch.

「But even among the elves,
The name of us, Red Oath is spreading…」(Rena)

「But it’s amazing! If our popularity increases with this condition then when I found my company…」(Pauline)

「When our name is known to the Elf, the probability, that the knights will come to recruit, will increase!」(Meavis)

「…………」(Mile)

Rena, Pauline, and Maevis are delighted to hear that they are nominated by the elves.

Of course, the girls were happy to accept the order.

Mile tilts her head a bit pondering.

(Why, nominal from the elf…
Young, Elf young women who know us and are single… ) (Mile)

Mile gets an idea.

…or rather, it’s too much of premonition…

* * *

「We are the clients!」

[simple_tooltip content=’Chapter 96 ‘](Kulereia)[/simple_tooltip]

「「「「It came out*!」」」」(Red Oath)

(T.N: this is the Japanese-only joke. It often uses to say “the ghost came out”)

…Yes, of course, the Elves that appeared at the meeting place on the day of departure…

「Doctor Kulereia…」

Chapter 105 ‘](Kulereia)

「Etoul and Shararil, it’s been a long time…」

Chapter 284 ‘](Etoul or Shararil)

「「「「…We knew it!」」」」(Red Oath)

Yes, it was three female elf acquaintances of the Red Oath.

「But I thought Etoul-san’s group doesn’t get along with Doctor Kulereia?
Why did you bother to come here with Doctor Kulereia instead of returning directly from the country you live?」(Mile)

「「「…………」」」(Kulereia+ Etoul + Shararil)

There’s no answer for Mile’s question.
While Mile was pondering, Pauline whispered to Mile’s ear.

「… Isn’t it to save money? Escort costs are not cheap…」(Pauline)

「Ah!」(Mile)

Yes, with the price 2 small gold coins per person per day, 8 pieces for 4 people.
80 pieces for 10 days.
Considering the Japanese money, it’s worth 800,000 yen. (USD: 7519.11)

It’s not cheap for scholars, including the rent for carriage, food, etc.

At least, to the point that they give priority to it rather their petty pride…

The Elf’s ears are a little bigger than humans, the three Elves have a good hearing because they live in the forest, they could hear everything Pauline said, even though it was supposed to be a whisper.
And they *Gununu* grinned their teeth.
Rena felt sorry for the elves and started walking.

「Let’s go! We can talk while walking.」(Rena)

Yes, the time they stop and talk is “useless time” and “wasted time” that doesn’t make any money.
If they wasted such time while carrying their backpack, it was a big deal…

* * *

At the carriage shop, the group got in the carriage that the Elves made a reservation and went to the Elf village.
They hired a double carriage, including the coach. Of course, the Elves paid for it.

This carriage will take everyone to the town near the Elf Village and they will walk from there.

It seems that the location of the village isn’t a secret, but the Elves don’t like the fact that other races come in and ruin their forest.
And it seems that there’s no road in the forest for the horse-drawn carriage.

Of course, it’s also strictly prohibited for hunters to hunt or collect near the Elf village.

「…And, although it’s not prohibited to leave the village and live in a human town,
The elders don’t like it and are too noisy…
So, we have to accept the conditions that we will go back to the village regularly to report and to meet the men.
Elven villages are much smaller than human towns.
Originally, we knew all the young men in the surrounding villages!」

‘](Kulereia)

In the carriage, unlike the last time they met, Dr. Kulereia explains how to go back home this time in a way that like a Japanese schoolgirl.

At that time, the doctor was in the position of “a researcher who is performing the job that she received”.
Now that she is just an “Employer who hired Escorts”, is that why her attitude changes?

But the Red Oath has somehow guessed the true age of Dr. Kulereia, who speaks like a young girl, so, they have a subtle face.

…No, it doesn’t look strange…

…From her appearance…

「Therefore, I will report on my research results and whether I am living seriously,
Convincing the elders and making Otou-sama (esteemed father) feel at ease…」

‘](Kulereia)

While saying so, Dr. Kulereia looks at Mile with a dubious eye.

And the eyes of Etoul and Shararil also shine mysteriously…

(((Ah, these elves…))) (Rena’s Trio)

Rena, Maevis, and Pauline somehow found out why this escort request was appointed to Red Oath.

Yes, besides the financial problem, the reason why Dr. Kulereia, Etoul, and Shararil formed a group despite their bad relationship…
In addition, they probably pressured the guild not to refuse this nomination request…

「I know. It’s important is to reassure your father (Otou-san)」(Mile)

And Mile, who has an extremely different value of intelligence when her head is clear and dull.

(T.N: Mile isn’t always average, she can be min and max as well)

    • She sometimes goes for an average minimum, and an average maximum, but generally just MIle’s average.

      Like

  1. [there such s collection] -> {there such a collection}
    [double carriage, including the coast] -> {double carriage, including the coach}

    An average Elf escorting mission, and the elves are averagely troublesome. Truly average, Mile style.
    Thanks for the chapter! God bless you!
