Chapter 4 – Incurable Complaint -2-
There are only three days left until the entrance ceremony.
I’m not even going to enroll, but I’m looking forward to it.
What will happen in the future with anticipation.
When I thought of the timing to sneak in, my head quickly filled up.
I started moving my body in the yard to empty my complicated head, and soon the sun went down and I started to feel hungry.
‘What to eat for dinner’
What to eat for three meals a day
It was a more difficult problem to solve than a platinum level request.
It would be nice if the empire officially announced the diet every month.
Even when I get out of the house and walk down the street, I don’t really want anything.
After wandering around several times and remembering that there was still some strawberry jam at home, I bought a stone-hard baguette and went home leisurely.
“I couldn’t give you happiness~”
They walk while humming a song that they cannot hear anymore.
As my precious nest began to come into view, I could see a familiar figure standing in front of my house.
Hairband on soft brown hair.
He was the signboard receptionist for the adventurer’s guild.
‘Ah- I was twisted and thrown away without even realizing it?’
No matter how urgent it is, there is really nothing I can do to come to the front of the house.
He is over 2m tall and possesses unmatched superpowers.
Rather than sharp and neat swordsmanship, he is famous for destructive and reckless swordsmanship and magic spearmanship.
He lived with the nickname of a killer tank on the battlefield, and can be seen as the oldest among the surviving knights.
After a long time as a knight, he is now retired and is a man living his life with the taste of giving pocket money to his grandchildren.
‘I wish I could retire in moderation and have a drink at home…’
Although they had known each other for a long time, Roland couldn’t understand Doran.
It’s not that you don’t have money, but why are you so obsessed with the academy dean, didn’t something disastrous happen with your foolish stubbornness?
I can spend my old age reading books that live and die, but I still try to keep the dean’s position.
He seemed to have no intention of quitting the dean.
I couldn’t help but fear that my friend might die if I went on like this.
After making a reservation at an unfamiliar restaurant and settling into a private room, he is waiting for people, not food.
‘I’m really helping you this time. Damn you.’
He fiddled with the adventurer’s card in his arms.
It’s the same color as the lowest rank among the adventurer ranks, but…
-Revenge and grace will pay off somehow… That’s my belief. I promise that this tile will be worth more than a thousand gold… Please help me just once.
Now it really has a value beyond a thousand gold.
Roland remembered a few years ago when he first met him.
Eyes that were bloodshot red and completely filled with flesh.
Even then, he thought that gamnyang was not normal, but he never thought he would become such a big man.
The door to the private room opened roughly, and a man who had been waiting for him entered.
He let out a deep sigh as soon as he entered, not hiding his feelings of annoyance.
“Ha-a-damn old man.”
“You seem to be doing well. I’m glad more than anything. Roman. Come and sit down. Let’s start eating.”
Even after that incident, we met occasionally and became a casual relationship.
Roland also enjoyed meeting the young guy who treated him so comfortably.
“Are you still keeping our cute receptionist busy?”
Haha!! As expected, sending a woman was the answer. What on earth did you expect?”
“Tsk…You can send a man from now on, so don’t send a woman alone to the outskirts. Don’t you know how dangerous it is there?”
After all, she is a guy with morals to be called an adventurer.
Doran doesn’t believe in uncertain factors like her intuition, but Roland trusts her own intuition more than anyone else.
‘Even if this guy dies soon, he will keep his promise.’
She finished the meal in a bickering manner as usual, and a cup of hot coffee was served, announcing the end of the course.
“So… Is it not worth telling now why she called?”
As if Roman was tired of waiting, she drank a cup of hot coffee and glared at Roland.
“It would be a nuisance to procrastinate over an expensive adventurer. I have a favor to ask of you.”
Roland took out the adventurer’s card he had been fiddling with and placed it on her table.
Roman hardened her expression and applied her mana.
The mana flowing from Roman’s body covered her entire cabin.
It was one of the techniques to block out noise.
His usual harsh atmosphere had subsided, and he straightened his stance and accepted Roland’s hand.
“I thought I might have forgotten… Okay. It’s unexpected, but I definitely received the adventurer’s hand. I can kill the prince even if you ask me to, and I will catch you even if you ask me to catch the black magicians hiding in the empire.”
“Crazy guy—- I’m assuming you didn’t hear the former… And are there black magicians in the Empire?”
“I have no reason to tell you. I’ll listen to just one, so choose. I’ll do whatever is possible.”
He always makes fun of his mouth, but each one was a really dangerous statement.
The problem is that it’s not a joke, it has a sincerity that can’t be turned away.
“Actually, it’s not that great—- no, is it a big deal to use that ‘platinum’ for something like this?”
Unlike usual, he didn’t tackle ‘old guys talk too much’, Roman waited until Roland came to a conclusion.
‘It’s completely easy. Even the goddess is indifferent, where the hell is this guy…’
Roland looked at Roman, who was completely full of energy, and lamented that he was an adventurer, not a knight.
It was fortunate that this adventurer was in the Harun Empire, not the Federation.
“I want you to teach me at the academy.”
The first time Roland took out an adventurer’s card.
He was determined not to attend the academy entrance ceremony.
Even if you miss a few hidden pieces due to timing, a promise is a promise.
The issue of trust is as important to an adventurer as his life, so I listened carefully and waited for him to come to a conclusion.
“I want you to teach me at the academy.”
As soon asheheard it, Roman wanted to get up from his seat and dance.
Where did something go wrong that caused the causal law to be destroyed? I don’t know why it reached this result.
Giving the adventurer’s card to Roland a long time ago was also a coincidence that wasn’t aimed at.
Of course, this wasn’t the act of calculating this at all.
However, expressing emotions at the negotiating table is something only a third-rate chaff would do.
I gritted my teeth and nodded my head while maintaining my expression.
“Do it. It’s a promise and a return for the favor, so I won’t accept any remuneration.”
“…Really? I thought you would accept it, but I’m a little sorry to see you so cool.”
Roland’s face was a rare expression of pure surprise.
After all, money rots.
Rather than accepting a small instructor’s salary, it would be better for her to put one of her burdens on Roland.
“If you keep paying commissions worthy of platinum, you’ll be chosen as a pillar even at the academy, right?”
“That’s right… That’s why I hesitated to talk about it. In fact, I tried to compromise by adjusting the time or number of times.”
“Instead, since I work for no pay, I’d like to hear a little bit about the time conditions and education.”
Adventurers have to do it sometimes.
Usually, if the performance is cut off in the long term, the adventurer grade may be demoted.
It won’t happen to Platinum, but it’s good to see your face sometimes.
‘It’s also a good reason to come out.’
Hidden Peace is not the only reason I want to continue being an adventurer while doing two jobs. Because there is after the ending of this game.
If the main character makes a run to Korea, he cannot predict what will happen after that, but the world is not the end.
I have to come up with measures to survive in this world.
“It’s a condition—- that’s what I mean… I’ll be waiting for you at another store right now.”
“Who? Could it be… The dean of the academy?”
Roland grinned and nodded her head.
Unlike the meal in a high-class restaurant, the place the dean was waiting for was a pub full of cheap snacks on the menu.
After passing through the bustling interior, there was an independent table placed inside.
I don’t know if this was a request or if this kind of place originally existed, but Roland headed for it first, and I followed.
“Nice to meet you. The embittered Doran Escarro, who holds the position of dean of Lofty Academy.”
“Nice to meet you. I’m Adventurer Roman.”
“Sit down for now.”
Doran was the complete opposite of Roland.
It was calm, but the volume of the voice was just right.
As if he had already adapted to his one-armed personality, he skillfully used his left arm to pour out the drink.
The fact that the dean’s arm had already been cut off was not surprising since rumors had spread all over the place.
“Will rum be okay? It’s sugar-free, but it has a nice scent because it uses butter.”
He handed me a wooden cup.
It’s not reasonable to refuse in a place like this, so I took the rum and put it down.
Without needing my painful explanation, Roland briefly explained the situation to Doran, excluding the adventurer’s hand.
When the story came out that they would do it without pay, Doran’s expression almost broke.
“I don’t know what happened between the two of you. Even if it’s a moral case, I can’t allow you to go without pay. It’s obvious that the adventurer’s guild will send a letter of protest.”
The academy playing their best cards for free?
It was certainly not a pleasant situation from the perspective of the Adventurers Guild.
“…Then I only need to pay the assistant instructor’s salary. Please announce that I have paid you a satisfactory salary. That is enough.”
“No, anyway, that’s a bit…”
While talking with Doran, I thought a bear had entered the tavern and howled.
All eyes in the tavern gathered at Roland’s throat, but quickly dispersed at the sight of his size.
“Hey, you stuffy bastard. Wouldn’t it be fine if you accept this and pay attention to the conditions as much as possible! Did your notice disappear as your arm disappeared?”
Roland grabbed Doran’s empty sleeve and swayed her from side to side.
Doran, who was irritated at the moment, was about to shoot Roland, butheheld back his anger when he realized that Roman was watching.
“Hmmmm…Then let’s start with the essential conditions.”
