The meeting was dismissed for the time being, and the deputy head, Elise-san, and the high-ranking adventurer, Kai-san, made preparations behind the scenes according to the setting that the Guild Master had come up with.
It was also decided that the guild Master, who involved the two of them, would bear the cost of healing Kai-san with magic, and I was asked to wait by the side until the Guild Master’s work was finished.
In other words, I was very idle right now.
I’d decided to take a peek at the guild master’s work and watch him process some kind of paperwork, because I had a lot of free time on my hands.
I didn’t know how the letters of this world were formed and developed, but somehow, the words, I was able to understand their meaning.
It was truly incredible.
Was this the power of apps too?
“… Oh, you miscalculated here.”
“Ah, here too. In addition, the information in this contract doesn’t contain enough information, I think it will be bad if it is held accountable.”
I took literacy as a pleasure, constantly intervene in the work of the guild master, pointing out calculation errors and incomplete information.
No, what could I say, my blood boiled because I’d been an office worker for a long time.
I didn’t think it was a good idea, but whenever I see a mistake, I couldn’t help but point it out.
After all, this document was produced by a medieval man from a different world, when civilization was still developing.
I’d been a company employee for ten years in the modern era, so I’d been familiar with it.
The guild master sighed in disgust and looked back at me as if he were observing an unidentified alien.
What a rude old man.
” ……. Where did you acquire this knowledge and education?”
“No, it was just a fluke. It was just a whim, a whim.”
No, It was far-fetched, but I couldn’t stop my blood from boiling.
“It doesn’t seem like a fluke to me… first of all, it’s not normal from a calculation point of view… well, that’s okay. It’s just that, thanks to you, I’ve finished my work early, so let’s talk about the real reason I protect you.”
Nah, I see……
So that’s how it is.
No, what the heck is this? So the contents of previous meeting weren’t the the real reason? Old man, did you conspire me!?
No, it’s not the case, judging from his calm demeanor, guild master didn’t seem to be setting me up.
It’s just that he had another reason for not telling us.
You scared the shit out of me, old man!
“As you know, I am the former Earl of Galhart, lord of the towns and cities of this region. The House of Earl was given to my son, and currently I work as a guild master, but I have power and confident to speak in the aristocratic world. And I have a grandson…. Hey, are you listening?”
No, I wasn’t listening to you at all.
I didn’t care if you tell me about the power of the nobility or about the title and so on. But I wasn’t familiar with those cultures, so I couldn’t understand them all, and my brain was in a state of deadlock.
Right now, I nodded as if I understand, but then again, I wondered what kind of status an earl was….
I knew that there was a duke under the king.
And then the next level was a marquis.
Where was the earl position?
Was that under the marquis?
Or two levels lower?
It was a mystery.
But higher than middle-class aristocracy, probably.
“Well, return to the point. Earl of Galhart, my son has inherited the lord position and has a son. My grandson… He happens to be about your age. You remind me a lot of him.”
It seemed that the real grandson of this oldman and I were about the same age.
I’m not sure if it’s a good idea for me to pretend to be his grandson when his grandson still exists.
Even if I say I’m an adopted child, it won’t sound good to the outside world.
It might be that I showed what I thought to my face, the guild master sighed.
“Well, I understand why you have such a reaction, but you don’t have to worry. Because my grandson is very weak, he has been undergoing recuperation and has never left the house. And this is why I protect you.”
Geez, there was a bit of a tidal wave here.
I didn’t want to be involved in chaotic disputes between aristocratic families.
That’s not necessarily the case yet.
But the fact that his grandson had been undergoing recupation means that if he wasn’t intentionally poisoned with a poison, he might have suffered an injury that couldn’t be cured with recovery magic.
Considering this is a different world, it might be a curse.
And then there was a mysterious boy who suddenly appeared without any warning and can cast recovery magic that doesn’t look like he learned it from the church……..
In other words, it’s me.
No need to guess, It’s the same in any world.
“If you were educated and good at reading people, you might have noticed it…. Exactly. I want you to look at my grandson’s condition and treat him. It has been seen many times by the practicioners in the church, but no amount of recovery magic would help. It can already only be considered a curse…. ”
No, it’s impossible.
I’m afraid the Church’s healing practicioners were of a higher rank than me, considering they were hired by a high ranking nobleman.
The Guild Master might not know this, but I was only level 3.
What was he expecting from a mere level 3?
Maybe he thought that my recovery magic had a different effect than the church’s, but unfortunately, my occupation was just a normal priest.
Probably, the skills I used were the same as well.
“By the way, what are the symptoms? ”
“Well, his body is always hot, his voice is depleted, he cough loudly… ”
“Moreover, I’ve received report that he often feel tired and have no appetite. Although the symptoms may subside temporarily for a period of time, it will eventually relapse. ……. I’m at my wit’s end.”
“No, that’s just influenza, or is it a cold or flu? A cold can be caused by more than 200 types of viruses, whereas an influenza infection is caused only by the influenza virus. A cold goes away naturally because the body fights off the virus on its own, so it can be cured without any special treatment. However, the flu can be fatal in people who are weak or have weak immune systems.”
” …….. What!? What’s Influenza!? Tell me! Tell me!”
When I responded to the symptoms fluently, the guild master grabbed me.
Come to think of it, it was impossible for someone from this world to know what influenza is.
Also, he grabbed me very tightly.
As expected of an adventurer’s guild master, he must have a high level of occupation.
Or rather, it hurts.
“It hurts, it hurts, it hurts!”
“Ugh! Yeah, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. What did I do? I’m sorry. I seem to have panicked for a moment.”
…….. Cough, cough, so this is the difference in level.
No, let’s be serious.
Well, I wouldn’t be able to figure it out without seeing it in person. But seeing that the guild master is so worried, the effect of recovery magic on a viral disease may be minimal.
After all, I didn’t know if it was a cold or the flu, or if it was a different disease… Anyway, let’s go to the pharmacy first and buy some cold medicine.
If something strange happened because of that, we’d figure it out then.
There’s nothing I can do about it.
After all, I said was, “It’s probably an influenza”.
