Chapter 107 – “Black Golden Wings” gets tangled up
The next morning.
“Sorry, I drank too much and talked too much.”
An acquaintance adventurer walked past Tauro at the guild’s entrance and apologized to him with a wave of his hand as he passed by.
“…? Good morning.”
Tauro and the others, wondering what he was talking about, greeted him and entered the guild, where they gathered in front of the bulletin board as usual and started talking about which quest to accept.
Just then, the same four people from yesterday appeared.
“I didn’t know you guys were the “ Black Golden Wings”! We were completely fooled.”
The leader of the group, Nasirus, sighed exaggeratedly and tried to look like a victim.
It seems that he obtained the information by throwing money around at the Resting Pavilion, a hangout for adventurers.
The adventurer who apologized at the front might have been bought a drink and told them about the team in a drunken stupor.
“…? it’s unreasonable to think that you were tricked when we just didn’t answer because we weren’t asked, you know?”
Tauro replied on behalf of the team.
“Shut up, you little shit! We’re talking to your leader, Aeris!”
Iratuk broke off Tauro.
Tauro made eye contact with Aeris and the others.
“What the hell is wrong with you, you little shit!”
He walked up to him and reached out to grab his hair.
Tauro slapped his hand away and took a step back.
“Don’t you know that violence is illegal in the guild? Let’s follow the rules of being an adventurer.”
Then Chloe, the branch manager, who had been watching the situation, said.
“If you engage in violence within the guild, in the worst case scenario, you will be disqualified from being an adventurer, ‘Jet-Black Sword’.”
“He’s the one who messed with us!”
Iratuk shouted angrily.
“It only looked like he hit you because you put your hand out, didn’t it?”
“Well, calm down, Iratuk and you. Both of you should calm down.”
The leader of the group, Nasirus, intervened as if he were a worthy arbitrator.
I was calm, even though he just told me I was responsible for the situation, so I wondered, is this person okay?
“Come out in the open! I’ll remind you how strong we are!”
Vichina, the redhead of the “Jet-Black Sword”, challenged Tauro on behalf of Iratuk.
“We’re here to choose our quest. We don’t have time to deal with you guys, though. At least come back when you’ve been promoted to E-rank.”
Aeris, perhaps sensing Tauro’s thoughts, did not take the challenge and modestly refused.
“Did you get scared! It would be a shame if your leader was so cowardly.”
Iratuk tried to provoke them again.
“I don’t know what you think you’re doing, but the leader of the “Black Golden Wings” is Tauro here.”
Aeris pointed at the boy, who was slightly shorter than her.
The members of the Jet-Black Sword were so surprised that they were speechless for a moment.
“Hahahaha. What a funny joke, having a luggage boy as a leader.”
The leader of the group, Nasirus, regained his composure and replied without taking it seriously.
It seems that they also had information that Tauro had a “magic storage”.
Aeris snapped at the fact that Tauro had been called a baggage handler.
“Tauro is our worthy leader, after all. Unlike your misunderstanding self-absorbed self!”
Aeris said, and Shin and Rumeya nodded in agreement.
Aeris-san, don’t take this further!
Tauro inwardly retorted at her, but he had to step forward because he was thinking of his companion.
“It would be annoying to bother the others, so can I ask you to go outside? We’ll talk afterwards, please.”
Looking around, the other adventurers were watching the two teams.
At this point, the “Jet-Black Sword” finally realized that it had become a spectacle, and left the guild as quickly as it could, saying that it would leave first.
I watched them leave
“I’m sorry to have disturbed you. Good luck with your quests today, everyone!”
When Tauro called out, there was a burst of laughter.
“What are you going to do, “Black Golden Wings? They’re so motivated.”
“You’ve gotten yourselves entangled with some numbskulls.”
“They seem to be aristocrats, so they could be trouble.”
The adventurers called out.
“We didn’t say anything about taking them on, so we’ll go out the back after we choose our quest.”
Tauro replied, and the lobby erupted in laughter again.
“You’re right, all he said was to get out.”
“You’re so clever!”
“You’ve got a point!”
While the guild was united in laughter, Tauro and the others really went out the back when they received their quest.
