The receptionist’s voice reverberated across the adventurer’s guild.
Well, there was no one else in here but the receptionist, Alaine and I , so she didn’t stick out like a sore thumb. The adventurers’ guild here was extremely small. There was only one receptionist and almost every adventurer in this guild was a resident of the village. There wasn’t any other adventurer in this guild right now. The other few adventurers in here were already out on a mission.
All of the adventurers in here were taking escort requests for the peddler that visited this village.
“I knew it. I shouldn’t have done that, huh?”
I said so to the receptionist.
“No, no! That’s not it! In fact, there’s no single reason why you shouldn’t have done that!”
The receptionist rebutted my assumption with all of her might.
“Really? But I thought the existence of the adventurers here is one of the biggest reasons why the inn in this village is still up and running?”
“No! In the first place, this village is known for their hot springs!”
I was surprised when I heard the receptionist’s words.
“Yes. As a matter of fact, the monsters only started to overflow only recently….. In the first place, this village is popular because of the crystal clear emerald green water from our hot spring. A natural hot spring in a secluded place.”
Emerald green hot springs, huh….
………….Huh? What’s that? Is it safe? I’m very interested in it.
“The inn was built during those popular times.”
That’s great. Then it’s good that we’ve destroyed it. Ah, I’m feeling so relieved now.
“Ah, right. I almost forgot. We’re here to report to you about our findings and what we’ve done.”
The receptionist nodded at my words before she took out a paper and a pen. Adventurers were obliged to report the details of their request to the guild.
“I see…. Boy in chains, huh…. I understand. I will convey this report to the higher ups.”
“Yes. I’ll be counting on you.”
I finished telling the receptionist the details of our situations before. By the way, I also told her that the chained boy was strong, he was only a little weaker than Zero. I had only been a vice commander for a short while so my existence wasn’t very well known in this world. The extent of my strength was still unknown to the world too, so even if I told that to the receptionist, she still wouldn’t be able to really understand just how strong I was. But… The higher ups in the adventurers’ guild would surely understand.
“Then, I guess we’re done here.”
“Yes! Thank you very much! Truly! I, as someone from this village, I want to say how thankful we are to you!”
The receptionist bowed very deeply and said so to us. We were about to leave the guild when I realized that Alaine was sweating a little. It was understandable though since it had been a while since she last fought intensely like that.
“Ah, I… I want to try going to that emerald green hot spring. Is it alright for us if we do that?”
I asked the receptionist. There was nothing to lose in asking after all.
“Yes! Of course!”
The receptionist cheerfully nodded.
Ah, so we can get into that hot spring.
T/N: ARE WE GOING TO GET HOT SPRING SCENE NEXT?? ALAINE AND ZERO??
