『It was a big failure …』(Rena)
The 《Red Oath》 continued to move on the road where the sun has fallen when it’s getting dark.
Yes, from the beginning their identity was busted,
The girls were ashamed and they couldn't stay in that town so they left again.
『A shameful display!』(Rena)
Rena’s trio still felt shame and their face still remain as red as a tomato.
And on the waist of Maevis, the trembling nanomachines that had no turn also felt disappointed.
『Well, it is natural for the guild, because it was a major incident.
They spread the news to all other guilds as a meaning to warn, prevent other them repeat such mistakes.
It’s meaningless without letting all the guild officials and the hunters know about it, as it’s a warning.
So, it’s obvious that all the people who concerned about the hunter guild would know that…
And, if it’s an only-female hunter party, well, there’s not many of them.
And furthermore, we also played as the lady again to stop by the guild just like the last time…』(Pauline)
Pauline calmly muttered so.
『Ah, if you have noticed, say that from the beginning!
Why were you silent!』(Rena)
『…It was interesting?』(Pauline)
『Why are you in doubt!』(Rena)
Pauline was still Pauline…
And on that day, 《Red Oath》 camping a little away from the town.
A few days later, 《Red Oath》party arrived in a city.
They still haven’t crossed the border yet, and it seemed that the information about 《Noble lady hunter party》 still hasn’t spread yet.
And of course, everyone wore their usual hunter equipment.
『I’m tired of funny little acts, we are an up-and-coming young C-ranked hunter party 《Red Oath》
We won’t accept anything small, we will raise our rank with a straight fight!』(Rena)
And as usual, when the girls went into the guild branch, everyone’s eyes were on them as usual, the girls checked the information board as usual.
And the girls stopped moving.
《Class B Attention Information.
The Albarn Empire has invaded the Brandel Kingdom.
Those who head in that direction must be cautious》(Notice)
The Brandel Kingdom.
It’s the country the girls last visited and…
『Mile, your mother country …』(Rena)
『… Yes, and the southern side in contact with the Albarn empire is the Ascham territory, near the border…』(Mile)
She has abandoned her name and the territory.
It's the country that Mile has decided that she would never involve again.
A country that has nothing to do with her already.
However, Mile’s complexion was bad.
Rena took Mile's hand and headed to the counter.
『I would like to hear more about the invasion of the empire』(Rena)
When Rena asked so, the receptionist answered with a smile.
『General information is free, detailed information cost one small gold coin…』(Receptionist)
『We want to ask for the details』(Rena)
『Well, please come over there, Welith please!』(Receptionist)
The receptionist called a female staff who seemed to be in charge of explanation and asked the girls to go to another room…
Of course, there is no reason to talk about paid information at the counter where there are a lot of people around.
『Well, I will explain the situation.』(Welith)
In a separate room, after receiving a small golden price of prepayment in advance,
the female staff named Welith told the detailed information.
According to her, the Albarn Empire suddenly invaded without declaring war on the Brandel kingdom on the northern border a few days ago,
And the soldiers seemed currently fighting in the territory of Brandel kingdom near the border.
The Ascham main town doesn’t face the border, but as half of its territory already lost, the Ascham main town will be invaded sooner or later.
『The empire still doesn’t seem to have a full-scale warfare yet.
It seems to be an analysis for the invading army, logistical supplies, deployment situation of other militaries, etc…
Perhaps, they used as a test for their full-scale invasion later
This invasion army’s purpose seems to 《cut the territory》 from the Brandel Kingdom and used it as a relay point.
The Brandel Kingdom may be angry, but there is a different military strength between the empire and the kingdom.
Moreover, the Kingdom wasn’t prepared for the war,
Even if they prepared the soldiers now in a hasty manner, it will be a foolish idea to fight the Empire head-on and waste their army on somewhere far away like the border.
Perhaps the Kingdom might abandon their territory and carefully prepared for a counter attack…
Of course, the Empire also shouted the cause is from the Kingdom,
Apparently, they said they went and claimed for the owner and the legitimate successor of the Ascam territory who was absent.
They insisted it was a sortie at the request.
Of course, there was no country that would believe such a thing, but they used it as their reason for the time being』(Welith)
『… …. Why do you know so much about it!』(Rena)
It is a surprise. It was cheap for such information with a small gold coin.
『Well, where is that information from …?』(Maevis)
Following Rena, Maevis also surprised and asked.
But Welith replied with a mischievous smile.
『That’s a secret!』(Welith)
(Yokki ~yun!) (SFX)
Even if she was concerned, Mile couldn’t do anything but locked it in her heart.
She was a deep business girl…
And Welith left the room after finishing the explanation, the 《Red Oath》still remained in that room.
They paid a small gold coin as an information fee, so they got permission to use the room for a while.
『Apparently, the destination of the empire is the Ascham territory…
What will you do?』(Rena)
Rena asked Mile.
『Well, I will not do anything, because it’s a country that has nothing to do with me, an unrelated territory.
I am the magical swordsman of the C-Ranked Hunter Party 《Red Oath》that named Mile…!』(Mile)
Even Mile tried saying that with a flat face, but her trembling body, blue face, and depressed expression have betrayed everything.
『Still, isn’t it the place where Mile-chan was born and raised?
And were there still people who took care of you and people you knew?』(Maevis)
『Although it’s nominal, it’s still the territory of Mile-chan, and the people of Mile-chan?』(Pauline)
Mile keeps her head down in silence with what Maevis and Pauline said.
『Then, I will ask you』(Rena)
Mile raised her surprise voice without understanding the meaning of Rena’s abrupt words.
『Anyway, I guess you are thinking you can’t get us involved in your own personal things,
Because it’s you after all.
So, why don’t you ask us for a job with a free request for 《Red Oath》
With the content 《going to the Ascham’s land!》』(Rena)
It’s the request which doesn’t go through the hunter guild, but the client negotiates directly with the hunters.
The advantage is they won’t waste the commission fee on the guild.
And no matter the content of the request, they won’t need to worry about the guild’s rule if the hunters accept it, as long as it’s not illegal.
And the downside is that the hunters can’t get the guild’s achievement points.
And there’s no guarantee even if the client and the hunters are lying.
The hunters may end up with non-payment and the client may end up with false report of results.
And free request can happen that the people who received the emergency escort request while encountering bandits.
Although it’s dangerous to exchange free request with an unknown partner or an unreliable partner, there’s no problem if they know each other or trust each other.
『I want to have the free request for the C-ranked hunter party 《Red Oath》
The content of the request is 《go to the Ascham sacred territory and help the citizen of my friend》
Request fee is 1 silver coin.
Will you accept it, my party leader?』(Rena)
『I will accept it, my beautiful client’s lady…』(Maevis)
Rena felt embarrassed with a red face to Maevis’ serious face in response to her own 《playing game》
Even though Maevis showed it many times before, Rena still had insufficient training.
『Well, that kind of …』(Mile)
Paulin gently told Mile who has teary eyes.
『We all have been helped many times by Mile, and it also included the personal things of me and my family, the personal thing of Maevis.
And even if we didn’t receive help, we still want to receive this request to help you because…』(Pauline)
And, the voices of three people besides Mile were prepared.
『『『As long as red blood flows through our body, our friendship is eternal!』』』(Rena's Trio)
Mile clinging to Lena and crying,
Maevis drops her shoulders as she wonders why Mile always hugs Rena,
And Pauline is just calmly looking…
