Chapter 68

Chapter 68 – Melancholy of Uracal 5

Uracal woke up to the feeling of a female dog licking his face.

“Ahh… In the end, there was no progress.”

Since there were no reports from his subordinates, it seemed that Aix had not been caught in the net.

What the hell is he doing… lick lick lick.

“Stop it, you’re being annoying. And stop doing that trick of standing on two legs.”


He grabbed it by the neck and pulled it away.

Damn it. My face is all sticky now.

“Good morning, Boss.”

It seemed that Anee-san was still asleep. Uracal washed his face with a bucket of water that Ren, the Trap, had brought him, washing away his troubles at the same time.

Ah, I feel a little better now.

“I’m going out.”

“Take care, Boss.”

As soon as he arrived at the Forest Rangers’ station, he was led to the captain’s office by a staff member, where he met Isel, the Kaiser bearded man, with his arms crossed.

“You’re late. How’s the progress?”

Not happy with Isel who was acting all high and mighty, Uracal regretted not bringing Ren along. If he had, he can humiliate him with last night’s incident.

“Geezer, the information on Aix’s whereabouts was incorrect. For the time being, we’ll hold the gate and the inn that surround the commanding army for five days.”

“Hmph. Not bad for you, but what will you do if the commander army finds Aix by another route?”

What would he do? He raised both hands and laughed.

“Well, if that happens, we’ll just say we were both unlucky. And that’s it.”

“You idiot! Remember this. Fortune never favors those who do not move themselves.”

Isel glared at him, his face turning red, but Uracal’s tactics were based on threats backed by violence, so Isel’s words had no effect.

He knew what Isel wanted him to do, but he just laughed it off.

“But, searching for him is not part of the contract.”

“You greedy bastard. I’ll pay you, so go look for him right away.”

Oh, Aix, you’re amazing.

Unexpected extra bonus scattered on the floor.

Hehehe, while lamenting the employer who doesn’t know how to give money, he gathers the large silver coins. Ah, money is great. A smile overflows.

“Hehehe, leave it to me.”

“Also, tell Aix that I’ll let him join the Forest Rangers.”

What did he say? Uracal looked up at Isel, but couldn’t read his true intentions thorough his strange beard.

“Huh? Are you valuing Aix highly?”

“Hahaha. If you want me to value you highly too, then show me your results.”

“Is it okay, Captain Isel? You promised not to let any useless kids join the squad.”

“Hmph. Aix probably found out the secret of the Viscount during work. That’s why we have to protect him. Now, get back to your normal duties if you understand.”

After confirming that his subordinates have left the room in admiration, Isel touches his proud Kaiser beard and murmurs quietly to himself.

“Idiots. If I put Aix in my unit, I can hold the Viscount’s weakness in my hand. I must make my splendid ceremony a success no matter what.”

Uracal, who has received a new request, returns to the hideout and gathers idle minions. However, there seem to be fewer people available this time, as they have allocated manpower to the siege.

Now, let’s see the members of the Aix search party.

❌ Not selectable

Anee-san (commander of the siege)
Trap-san (shopping with temporary income)
Lai-nee (lodging at Aix6s house)
Former pregnant woman (raising a child)

🔘 Participants

Female dog (registered pedigree)
Big man (muscle-bald magic user)

“Alright. Come with me. I’m counting on you.”



First, they head to the designated inn. They spot Lai-nee, whom they recognize, coming out of Aix’s room.


“It’s you…from back then. I’m glad you’re doing well. By the way, we’re looking for Aix. Do you know where he went?”

She shakes her head.

“I don’t know.”

“I see. Then we’ll be a bit of a nuisance. Can the dog smell Aix’s scent? Dog? Dog~?

Damn it, where did it go? It’s completely useless!

He looks at the big man, but he just stares back at him blankly. This guy…

“You’re out, dog.”


“Nevermind. Anyway, isn’t this room unusually warm and comfortable?”

Lai-nee happily smiles and starts talking enthusiastically about Aix’s achievements as if she has been waiting for the chance to do so.

“Ah, Uracal-san noticed it too! In the Goshujin-sama’s room, the flames keep burning on the floor, yet fresh air flows in. He even have hot showers, washing machines, and an infinite water bottle. And-”

“I get it, that’s enough. It’s like a noble’s mansion.”

Is Aix extremely rich?

I don’t know, maybe he stole magical tools like a washing machine from a noble’s house. It’s too nonsensical to heat the room without burning firewood.

I don’t understand.

Anyway, there’s not enough information.

Since I can’t stand hearing unnecessary embellished information, I’ll retreat.

When they leave the inn, a helper appears, a cute cross-dressing boy named Ren, holding a shopping bag.

“Ren! Perfect timing. We’re looking for Aix, so help us out.”

While smoking a cigarette, the Boss waits in the back alley, glancing at the restless bald man.

Is there any other clue for Aix?

Oh! That doll princess. There was a goddess-like woman next to him who might know something. I’ll threaten her and make her spill the information.

He drops the ashes and lights up another cigarette.

This is the third one.

It’s taking so long. Well, women take a long time to get ready. Sigh. Wait, he’s a man.

“Boss, sorry to keep you waiting.”

“No worries…”

Why did he change clothes?

Isn’t that the dress he wore during the Honey Trap mission?

“What a lovely girl you are!”

To the excited and complimenting bald man, Ren seems somewhat pleased, then looks at the Boss anxiously.

What? Do I have to say something? Oh no.

After staying silent for a while, the Boss makes a sad face and makes a Ren back to the room.

“Wait, Ren! I was so impressed that I lost my words. It looks good on you.”

“Boss, no thanks. I’m a guy, you know.”

He turns back around and looks at him happily.

Ah, my head hurts.

That seems to be the correct answer. He was trained by Anee-san. He throws away the cigarette and rubs it out with his foot.

“Let’s go, boys. First, let’s pursue the doll princess!”
