When I went to the river to get water for my bath, I saw a merman fighting against a giant snake, about 10 meters long. The giant snake raised its head, it looked like it was accumulating something inside its mouth before the snake spit the content of its mouth out. Maybe it was some sort of poisonous breath or something. The merman, receiving the hit directly, melted immediately. It was an instant death.
Without missing a single beat, I turned my wagon around and returned to my house as fast as I could. I locked the door shut and hid in the futon while hugging Ash. My body wouldn’t stop trembling. Trying to comfort me, Ash let out a series of weak whines.
Impossible. That thing is definitely impossible.
But… What about my bath…
For the time being, I had no other choice but to wait for the giant snake to somehow go away somewhere.
For now, I’ve calmed down enough. I ate an egg and nibbled on a piece of bread.
What should I do..
It was then I suddenly remembered. The adventurers’ guild existed for a situation like this. Only the hero in RPG games could defeat any monster that came in their way.
I immediately started preparing to go out and turned my wagon to the adventurers’ guild.
I was sitting on a table in the adventurers’ guild while having a heated discussion with Dan. On my magic board, I drew the town, the forest and the river. I circled the river area and drew a picture of a giant snake. I drew a picture of a merman fighting against the giant snake and drew a cross mark on top of the merman’s drawing while alternately stabbing the merman’s scale I had with my finger.
Somehow Dan was able to understand what I was trying to say. He made a gesture for money. He must be asking what we should do about the subjugation reward. I handed 5 gold coins to Dan.
Then Dan wrote a new subjugation request for the giant snake on paper and plastered the form onto the bulletin board. The strong looking adventurers were looking at the newly plastered paper curiously.
I’m sorry for pushing this burden to another person but please, I hope someone can defeat it……….
T/N: Wow. I think this is the first time I actually read an MC requesting monster subjugation to the adventurers’ guild instead of the other way around. Good, good. There’s no need for MC to risk his life for the sake of a bath when he can safely use his money to carve the way for him.
