Signs of Sinister 1
There were a lot monsters these days.
It’s not only the weakest species, such as hornrabbits, but also giant rampaging boars, birds, and goblins, which are not so strong but were affected by the miasma, that appear in the shallow areas of the forest.
This is a great help to progress of raising level, but not for adventurers who are risking their lives in their daily lives, the residents of this town, and the Earl who manages this town itself.
It’s a big problem if there’s anyting wrong with the forest next to the town.
From their point of view, it’s natural for them that something strange has happened in the forest.
Naturally, the scouting adventurers belonging to Adventurer’s Guild and Knight of the country are investigating and strengthening the security of the town, but the situation seems to be bad.
Then, the anxiety gradually spread to the surrounding area, and the Guild and Earl family have decided to launch a serious investigation. The result is they found out that it seems that a stampede of demons will occur in the near future.
Furthermore, deep in the forest there are large individuals that are superthreat to people such as Wyvern, only the most skilled adventurers are able to get close to them.
I don’t know why the stampede happened this time, but I do know that there are some individuals that have leaked out of the depths of the forest, so it seems that something strange is happening deep inside and the monsters are escaping in the direction of the town.
Therefore, this stampede is no longer just a speculation of what might happen.
But since we can guess, preparations have been made.
At present, the entry into the forest was prohibited, and it was not permitted even to enter the forest unless the middle-class adventurer ranked higher than C.
“That’s it Mizzet. I’m going to the Adventure’s Guild for a strategy meeting. Don’t go hunting more. It’s also forbidden to go out of town. Do you understand?”
“I understand, father.”
That’s what Earl Galeria Galhart told his daughter, and he went out busily.
It seemed that the father, who is devoted to his daughter, planed to confine her for a while in the Earl’s house, which is the best defended house in town, so that he could protect her in case of a stampede of demons at any time.
This is a wise decision I would make if I too were in his position.
But will this be enough to stop the rebellious girl? I’m worried about that.
When I glanced sideways at Mizzet, the little girl was grinning.
“How may I help you, Lady Mizzet?”
I was called out. I have a bad feeling about this.
“Did you hunt a Warcryboa in the forest last time?”
“Yes, I did.”
“You also killed a Hawkley, the montrous bird, who was said to have escaped from the depths of the forest, didn’t you?”
“Yes, I killed it.”
When I answered the question, Mizzet smiled happily.
By the way, Warcryboa is commonly known as a wild boar, and like the monster bird Hawkley, it is a powerful wild animal, or rather demon, usually found in the depths of the forest.
Both of them appeared in recent hunts and attacked me, so I use my magic and skill to kill them.
If you want to overthrow these monsters with a solo, you’ll need to have at least 20 level of occupations, whether you’re vanguard or rearguard.
In my caae, I’ve had three occupations, so even at the current level of 9, there’s already a parameter correction of 27 levels, which is three times the current level.
Well, I didn’t make all three of occupations as melee as warrior, or rearguard as wizard, so their abilities are more average than pure level 27, but the correction is still quite high.
So, I was able to defeat these demons solo, but……..what’s the point of that?
No, I don’t want to hear what she’s planning.
It’s been nearly two months since I went to hiding in another world, and I’ve started to get better idea of Mizzet’s character.
This is definitely not a bad thing.
“I think it’s a sin to have power and do nothing. If Kenji and I worked together, we might be able to solve even the stampede’s problems.”
“No, it’s impossible.”
Here it is!
You’re going to get involved me in this right away!
In the first place, I’m not a scout, so I can’t investigate or anything.
I mean, you’re putting your life on the line to easily, you should value your life more, rebellious little girl!
Damn it, I should have added “be careful” to lesson 4.
“It’s not impossible. Kenji already beat the knight of the house in a mock battle.”
“He is still a young knight, so he must happened to be careless about my appearance and because of his lack experience. If we had fought seriously, I don’t know who would have won.”
“No, that’s not true. To me it looked like that knight was serious about fighting.”
Actually, what Mizzet said was correct. The one I fought wasn’t one of strongest knight in the Earl house, but that didn’t mean he was a weak one either.
We gave each other our all, and as result, he was defeated by me, who used the physical abilities of a warrior and my light bullet skill and recovery magic.
Mizzet is really difficult to deceive since she is smart and discerning in vain and seems to have a high ability to appraise the true nature of her opponent.
“And I’m stronger now, too. With the appraisal magic tools my father prepared for me, I also obtained the occupation of a swordsman, and thanks to that, I became very good with sword. And even though the success rate is still low, but my recovery magic sometimes is successful.”
“Is that so?”
Mizzet’s gaze was already completely locked on to me, and she spoke out confidently with a smile on her mouth.
Apparently, she didn’t want to let me go.
“So I’m already a great adventurer. If the adventures Kenji and I are just sit around and watching, we can’t face the God who created this world, the….er… nameless Creator God! Don’t you think so?”
The Creator God who created this world was standing right in front of you!
Yes, it’s me.
However, such a truth cannot be accepted in this situation, and the little girl went on with her preparations for the journey with great enthusiasm.
The Guards seemed to keep an eye on the gate for the time being, but in front of rebellious girl who usually escaped from the eyes of people in the house and act selfishly, she will able to slip easily.
Mainly in terms of caution.
As I gazed at rebellious girl Mizzet, I thought, well, the stampede isn’t going to happen right now, so I’m going to let her adventure until she’s happy, and when she gets back, I’ll have Earl scold her for being a disobedient girl.
……..By the way, it goes without saying that it’s not 8-year-old Mizzet who will be mainly scolded, but me, her attendant.
