First job for the guild

The resolution that Misha asked me was whether I have the resolution to kill people.

However, it didn’t mean killing innocent people.

It is not as terrible as that.

In the situation where your life is targeted by others, we must have the conviction to kill the other party.

…The reason why I did such a thing is because I carry a huge secret.

If Misha’s power is known, I can’t guarantee my own safety.

It is highly possible that there would be people who would kill me just to obtain Misha.

Hence, the existence of Misha must not be known by anyone.

One of the reason why Misha stubbornly wanted to learn transformation is also because of this reason.

…If she was a beastkin or a human, she will just be a another high ranking adventurer.

She will not be a such rare existence and will not stand out as much as a cat would.

[Goshujinsama, thanks for your hard work nya~.]

After we got rid of the adventurer hunters, Misha spoke to me.

[Most of it is thanks to Misha.]

[However, it is quite difficult for a human to kill another human nya~.]

If this is Japan,this wouldn’t have happened.

When I was still working back in Japan, there was case of a thief robbing a convenience store.

The culprit was caught almost immediately, and a few days after, the case the headlines.

Murder wouldn’t have happened frequently in a small prefecture.

Since four people were killed this time, it would’ve been the biggest case of the year back at Japan.

[I don’t regret it. I’m an adventurer now and not a salaryman anymore.]

I said it indifferently.

Misha also does not want to kill people.

However, we did not have a choice.

If we didn’t intend to kill anyone and just escape, even if we successfully got out of the encirclement by the low level adventurers they would still know our secret.

[Let’s eat something slightly better today. We should ask the proprietress for some additional side dishes.]

[Good nya~. I want to eat fish.]

[Let’s do that then.]

As this place is very far from the sea, there is practically no fish cuisine.

Incidentally, when I asked the proprietress about fish cuisine,

[We don’t even have dried fish! Sorry about that–!]

She spoke in a loud voice.

————————————————————–

From that day on, Misha and I steadily proceed through the dungeon.

After reaching  a certain milestone, my level rose to Lv 10.

===

Keiji

[If you looked at what I’ve been doing until now, there’s no problem with my occupation being a warrior.]

I chat with Misha in my inn room.

A room like this which nobody else can enter is important so we could talk in secret.

[That’s right, let’s work steadily like this nya~.]

Misha felt joyous with my growth.

Furthermore, my status also changed from [Being raised by cat] to [Cat’s Partner].

I am being recognised after I reached Lv 10!

I am honestly happy.

However, I am still overwhelmingly weak compared to Misha so I still feel guilty.

Even though I said this, if I became as strong as a hero, our relationship wouldn’t change.

[Ah Misha? Are you feeling bored?]

Despite being Lv 71 ,she is still hunting around floor B10 and it does not fit her status.

[Not at all, anything is fine as long as I am with Goshujinsama nya~.]

Misha said as if it was natural.

[I just want to say, different from the time when you were a salaryman, I am happier now that we can always be together nya~.]

I see, I wonder if I could also think of it this way.

[However, there is just one regret nya….]

Misha said this with a gloomy tone.

[This place, there is not even one piece of fish…. Even dried fish is okay, I want it… Fish…nya….]

This is because the capital is in the middle of the mainland so fish rarely appears in the market.

Furthermore, there are very few citizens that love eating fish here unlike Japanese so prices of fish is relatively cheap.

The market for fish here is almost nonexistent.

As a result, the appearance of fish in this city is very rare.

[People catch and eat fish over there at the city near the sea, but it will take around 2 days to travel by foot from here.]

[It will take 2 days of walking for humans, but it will be even more difficult for cats nya….]

Oh right, let’s compare it this way.

It is like the hurdle of walking to Hokkaido.

As we speak, it is already time for dinner.

Luckily, the food in this inn is delicious.

[Hey Keiji, you reached Lv 10 already?]

The proprietress asked me while I was ordering food.

I felt that our relationship became that of a hostel student and a hostel manager.

[Yeah. I just leveled up.]

[Congratulations! You can be considered as someone independent! Alright, I will treat you to one dish today!]

She felt happy for me like a mother.

…Well, my real mother didn’t have this kind of character though.

However, the conversation does not end here.

[Oh right, Keiji? You haven’t accept any commissions from the guild yet right?]

[Ah? That’s right. I wanted to first improve my own ability. I felt I can’t handle the commission properly if I didn’t.]

If an adventurer only has the ability of an ordinary man, then the requester might as well have ask an ordinary man to carry out the request.

In most cases, the one accepting the request must have a certain level of ability.

Of course, there are also simple requests such as to walk their dog, but points for completing those are little.

[In other words, you currently don’t have any planned commissions in the near future?]

[Yeah, that’s the case.]

[Well then, can I request for you be a bodyguard for a delivery?]

The proprietress approached me closely and spoke.

[Is it fine even if with me at Lv 10? Well…I’d like to have more information.]

[You see, my shop purchases goods once a month and within the purchases we make orders for a large quantity of dried fish.]

Misha’s eyes opened widely.

[Because there are some people that want to eat fish here still. Of course, my husband also knows know to make fish cuisine and would not lose to those chiefs living at the harbor city.]

This statement gave me some expectation.

[Every month we will load some fish onto our carriage and usually we will put up a commission through guild to hire some bodyguards, but we had times when the adventurers just up and loot the fish from us.]

Well, there are also some lawless adventurers like them.

[Hence, I would prefer to hire you Keiji for this.]

Misha was meowing out.

…I would have to accept the commission no matter what.

[No problem. Are you the one going out to make the purchase?]

No one will be able to prepare food if her husband is not here.

It is not a day trip like riding shinkansen. Apparently the trip will take a total of 4 days. [1]

The inn would not be operational for 4 days if it was her husband.

[No, no. My daughter who runs the external operations for our inn will be going. …Look, Lunaria’s here.]

Daughter? Aa, the proprietress also have a daughter.

However, since she is the proprietress’ daughter, she would most likely have an image of an Edo era girl.

A girl with a gentle atmosphere like that of a falling snowflake came into my view.

…Is she really the proprietress’ daughter?

 

Notes:

[1] Shinkansen (New Trunk Line) is the well-known Bullet Train. Fun fact: it STILL holds the world record for high-speed maglevs – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shinkansen
