Episode 7 Gentleman’s agreement
After locking the door, the vice guild leader Gald returned to the sofa and glared at me.
There are a lot of scars and cuts everywhere on his scary face, so to put it bluntly, even a child would cry if they saw his face.
Well, my outward appearance seemed to be that of a child. Still, I’m able to keep calm because, if I compare his face to one of my demon pets, his face is no different than some angry baby.
“I hate bothersome chit chat so let me just ask you clearly, just who are you?”
…What kind of person am I, huh… actually that reminds me.
I keep silent, intensively wondering how should I explain this. Suddenly, Vice Guild Leader Gald opened his gripped hand and showed his palm to me.
…Hey, his lifeline is shortー(creases lines on his palm). His palm was disgustingly shined in greasy sweat though.
“Look at this hand of mine. From the time that you came into this room, it was sweating endlessly. I dare say that those two behind you probably are sweating as well.”
Hearing his words, I turn my head around. There stood two strong looking guards on the both side of the door. As I try to look at them, they divert their pale faces down towards the floor to escape from my gaze.
“Those two are genuine B rank, and I don’t want to boast about it but during my active service I was an A rank. That’s why we known by instinct that you are truly a dangerous person.”
Eeeeeehhhh? Still, I believe I am not a very harmless vampire princess.
“In my youthful days I was a reckless one, I have even challenged a griffin and a dragon. I have escaped life and death situations many times and won against these opponents, there were even those who quickly surrendered to me.
…However, you are exceptional, no, you are on another level. Frankly, I want to quickly flee from here. In order to save my own life, I would even do such a disgraceful thing. If you told me to lick your asshole, I would gladly do so!”
I reflexively blocked my butt and got off of the sofa.
“Gald-san, you’re the kind of person who is into very young girls huh…”
The Collard looks at Gald like he was a savage.
“―N-NO, WA-WAIT! I don’t have that kind of hobby, it was just a figure of speech…!!”
Taking control from Gald who was desperately trying to explain himself, Collard is beckoning to me “Now-now, please sit back down.”, so for time being, I returned to the sofa. Of course, I sat as far away as possible from Gald.
“I don’t have nearly enough field experience to make me understand your level by instinct like everyone else… but even so, I know that you are an extraordinary being. You are aware of it right? The barrier and detection magic which I spread around the guild.”
“Ah, that paper tape and spider web sort of thing?”
In beginning I just wanted to shake it off and not break it, but it kept getting in my way and bothering me since it persistently entwined around me, so I shook it with all my power and it just happened to break～.
“Are you saying that the barrier to defend against B-class monsters was ‘paper tape’ and the country’s first class detection magic was a ‘spider thread’…?!”
Hearing the shocked Guild Leader Collard’s speech, I became shocked too.
“Eeeh, that was to protect against B class monsters?! And that other thing is the country’s first class magic!? ―So weak!!”
I spilled my true opinion unintentionally. Seeming mad as expected, Gald cut into our conversation.
“Just sayin’, this guild’s number of registered adventurers is 20,000 people. Among those there are 500 B rank and 60 A rank. Plus there are 500 of the country’s regulars stationed here. I dunno what kind of monster you are, but can you take out every one of those opponents all by yourself?”
No matter if what Gald said was a bluff or not, I showed him the number 3 with my fingers.
“Hrm? What’s that?”
“All by myself, heh. If we clash head on, this is how much time it will take for me alone to annihilate all of you.”
“…You can do it in 3 days?”
Toward Gald who groaned in displeasure, I shake my head lightly.
“Nay, it could be as little as 3 minutes. Although, if I bring my subordinates along, a single one could blow this city off the map without a trace in 3 seconds.”
『It wouldn’t even take 2 seconds!』
Ten’gai declared something that impressive inside my chest…Yes, I’m sure it is definitely true too, which made me worry.
“…Ridiculous…that’s a bluff…”
Staring blankly, he spun those words to persuade himself.
Muh, this has become a bit annoying.
“Please wait!! Don’t tell me, you’re planning to say something like ‘In that case should I show you for real?’ aren’t you?!”
I opened my eyes wide. Collard, who stood still in a panicked state, actually got ahead of me, I was planning to say that.
“…So it’s true. I completely believe your words. Still even for mere entertainment, I seriously hope a god-like being like yourself doesn’t make such careless statements.”
Their figures were full of anxiety which somewhat projected my own usual feelings…this thrilled me in paradoxical joy. How should I put it, a feeling like ‘Fufufufu, everyone else is tasting my suffering to the max.’ arose inside of me.
But still, there were no mistakes with what Collard said and it’s pitiful to keep teasing them any more, so I’ll put a stop to this now.
“Well, if you guys don’t meddle with me, I won’t plan on doing anything to this city.”
“…I guess there’s no choice but believe in you. We can’t stop you anyway. I understand, we will not meddle with any of your activities. I also promise we will listen to any of your demands if it’s within our abilities.”
“Hmmm. Then I have one demand ―ah, maybe two. First, don’t monitor me.”
It’s natural for both of them to plan to monitor me. They nodded with sour faces.
“Now for the other one, during my stay some young women might disappear at night, and they will probably be in a trance when they are discovered. There will be no danger to their life and they will be returned to their original location, therefore I want you to overlook this matter.”
“―Oi, wait a minute! That’s a very serious thing! In the first place, how can we differentiate it from other crimes?!”
I see, there is a point to Gald’s complaint. If this overlapped with another abduction, it would be a disaster.
“Aah, that’s right. Then, I am going to make my requirements a bit narrower. To describe it in more detail, their age will be between 15-20 years old, and they will be a beautiful healthy virgin. Before they disappear they will be seen talking to a reeally beautiful blonde male, so I wonder about that?”
“Even with that I think your range is still too wide. Whatever.. in short, your target is a girl like Mia-san from before then, huh?”
‘I’m just making sure, but don’t lay a hand on my guild staff!‘ Gald narrowed his eyes towards me, with the look that he wants to confirm the last point.
“I suppose you can say that. Mia-san is okay; she is to my liking, but it’s too bad she isn’t a virgin.”
For some reason, the guild leader and the two guards all joined Gald and made a surprised sounding yell.
“―Th-then what about Mina?! That redhead teller girl three from the left, she’s clean and tidy!”
Collard throws away his calm mask from earlier and asks me the question desperately. He really changed his expression drastically!
“Ahー, that miss huh. I believe she was playing around with 2-3 guys. She had the smell of several males on her.”
“A-are you serious?!”
The guild leader fell to one knee and looked into the sky with a face like he thought the world had met its end.
Why do I feel that he received more shock from that than from my speech before?
“In that case, Lucia… she was the black haired girl with a mole under her eye, what about her?!”
“What about Ellen?! The blond haired girl with the pony tail!”
The two guards were also gripping me strongly, each one asking me a question.
…Um, what happened to the fact that they instinctively can’t approach me?
Or.. maybe this such a serious matter that it made them forget even their fear?!
“Ah, well, that matter is obviously private so I can’t say anything more…”
Even though I tell them so, right now those two still keep on pressing me for an answer. Collard is still suffering from the shock, and although I call out to Glad while glancing sideways towards him, he is completely lost in thought.
Men really are silly.
(End ep 7)
By the way, this is how their status looks,
The Guild Leader, Collard:
Race : Human (Magician)
Name : Collard Adlenant
Job : Arra City Adventurer Guild Leader
HP : 1,730
MP : 4,150
The Vice Guild Leader Gald:
Race : Human (Heavy Swordman)
Name : Gald Bass
Job : Arra City Vice Guild Leader
HP : 4,350
MP : 1,220
The guild leader has to hold a first class ability, therefore it is equal with an A rank from the guild levels.
And as for the reason why Hiyuki said 3 minutes, in the first place when she’s in serious mode, she is able to bring down 1,000 monsters with her level in 1-2 minutes (tln: Is this Dynasty warrior?). She said 3 minutes after estimating with some certain margin.
You could search the meaning of lifeline in the google, from the first result a site that describe you fully the meaning of it, you could be a paranormal if you are into it (laugh). this is a really /x/ thing.
The title is Gentlemen agreement, I kinda wonder about that, and it turn out the agreement is about that, I agree too, and therefore that’s not so silly, Hiyuki!
