We finally arrived at a building marked with the picture of a fire breathing dragon. Sarasa peeled off a paper from the bulletin board and began to talk to the man on the counter while carrying one bundle of the badol poisonous plant I had.
By the way, I had absolutely no idea what they were talking about. But the paper Sarasa had peeled had the writing of ‘badol poisonous plant’ in the local language.
If I had to guess, this place must be something like an adventurers’ guild. There was some sort of meeting area where a bunch of muscular and sturdy looking people equipped with weapons and armors looked at us with disinterest.
Then, that paper Sarasa peeled off must be a request paper. After talking with the man on the counter, Sarasa gestured for me to come to them. She pointed toward a piece of paper and gestured for me to write something down on it. While doing so, she also clearly said ‘Keigo Okuda’.
I guess they must’ve wanted me to write down my name there. Maybe this paper was some sort of contract or something. As of now, I had my full trust in Sarasa. I believe she wouldn’t be bringing me all the way here just to do something bad to me.
Either way, I didn’t understand the local language so I wasn’t capable of living on my own anyway. I willingly signed my name on that paper. I signed my name, ‘Keigo Okuda’ in this world’s local language.
By the way, I knew how to write ‘Keigo Okuda’ because I had appraised myself. I only wrote the same foreign language I had seen. It was quite difficult copying the language of this world. The cursive writing looked similar to arabic.
After I was done, the man on the counter took the paper inside and then he returned with some sort of crystal ball the size of a soccer ball. The man then gestured for me to hold my hand over the crystal ball.
I held my hand over the crystal ball and then I could see my face shot appeared on a card that appeared to be some sort of ID or something. When I appraised the card, I found out that in addition to my name and status, this adventurer guild card also had my adventurer class written on it, which was ‘Inferior Iron’.
This must be what they call the beginner class for adventurers. As I suspected, this place was the adventurers’ guild. The man on the counter then started to talk while twirling his fingers. I couldn’t understand the language he was talking in but maybe he was gesturing that I could bring other things I got to him.
For one bundle of badol poisonous plants I had, I got 3 copper coins in exchange. I bowed deeply in 90 degrees because I still didn’t know the word for ‘thank you’. While bowing, I also said ‘thank you’ in Japanese.
The man and Sarasa smiled, it seemed my intention was properly conveyed to them.
Then since she had finished with her business here, Sarasa waved her hands and left the building. As for me, before I left this adventurers’ guild, I looked at the requests displayed on the bulletin board and copied the words on my small magic board.
Incidentally, I saw the word for ‘slime’ there so I peeled the paper off and brought it back again to the man on the counter. Just to be safe, I also brought the water bottle containing the mucus of the slime I had defeated and these black stones they called monster core.
The request to defeat slime was deemed as completed just with the mucus alone. I got 1 copper coin in exchange for the mucus and as for the monster core, apparently that thing was not part of the conditions I had to fulfill to complete the request.
T/N: I’m glad MC didn’t get tricked by evil people… Also defeating slime is really not worth it… MC should just keep on selling medicinal herbs instead (ノ_<。)
