Chapter 120: Escort Quest

“What did you end up doing with those balls?”

“Oh, that’s…”

The next day after the experiment, we received a simple quest to kill some orcs in the vicinity, as it was my first activity as an adventurer in a while. I was surprised to hear by chance that the adventurer who first got involved with us had been missing since the orc outbreak. 

Incidentally, it’s not that unusual for adventurers to go missing, so there’s no particular search for him. But when someone close to you, or perhaps someone you know, goes missing, it makes you feel like you have to be careful too.

“Won’t the balls be easy to carry around if you crush them up?”

“No… isn’t it also quite troublesome to have powder chasing after you?”

“I agree.”

If powder is chasing you, it might get into your eyes or something. That would be more troublesome than the balls. Somehow, I don’t think this ball can be crushed so easily. By the way, even if I ask Yug and Zeal (Previously Ygg and Ziel), they don’t know anything about this ball.

“How do you use the chain and scythe Shana?”

“I’ll show you.”

Unusually, Shana said proudly and waved her chain at the orc who arrived just in time.


“It’s amazing. Isn’t it?”

And then the chain hit the orc and wrapped itself around it’s body. It then wrapped around the orc’s neck and strangled it to death.

“Does it wrap itself around anything it hits?”

“No, it doesn’t. It can be manipulated.”

To prove it, Shana moved the chain around to create a star shape and a circle shape.

“It’s a good one.”

“I made it good. You try.”

“Uh, okay.”

Shana said with a little annoyance. I took the chain from Shana and tried to operate it myself.

“What the hell is this?”


There was no way I could control it. Rather I don’t know what that means. It just moves around on its own. I can’t even make a distorted zero shape.

“This is something I can do because I used to make use of chains.”

Sophie also tried and it was just the same as me, she couldn’t control it.

“And the scythe?”

“Oh, this one.”

I thought the chain and scythe were a set because I knew what a chain and scythe were, but apparently that wasn’t the case.

“I’ll show it to you next time the Orcs come out.”

“Please do”

And so we set out to find the orcs again. Within half an hour, we had found a new orc.

“I’ll be back.”

Then Shana went behind the orc in stealth, we could see her, but the orc couldn’t see her, so she weakened her cover and raised her scythe.


“Wow… it’s big.”

Shana’s scythe had grown to about two meters. Considering the original size was about the same as a mowing sickle, it was many times larger.


She whispered cutely and swung the sickle down, cutting the orc in half.

“You can change its size?”


It’s convenient to be able to change the size, but I think the scythe is more difficult to use as a weapon.

“In its normal state, it’s not that different from a dagger.”

“What if you made it bigger?”

“…I still can’t use it well.”

Do you really need such a thing? I thought. But Shana seems to have her own ideas about why she chose this scythe.

“I don’t have enough firepower. That’s why this scythe was the best choice for me to make up for it.”

If she could find one, she would have preferred a normal sword that could be resized, but there were no such good ones in the second treasure vault. Well, the scythe was hard to use, that must have been why it was in the second treasure vault. However, the scythe is more specialized in cutting than a normal sword, so if you can master it, you might be strong.

“I’ll try my best to master it. ……”

“Good luck.”

“Do your best.”

By the way, if she makes it bigger, it’ll be heavier. So it seems that she’d need to raise her status a little more.

“Are we done for the day?”

“I guess so.”


It’s still early in the afternoon, but I’ve decided to call it a day. There’s a reason for that, too.

“Oh, isn’t this escort request just right?”

“Sounds good.”


The reason is because we want to accept an escort quest. It’s still a little while away, but I heard that you have to complete at least one escort request to move up to B rank. I’m the type of person who prefers to finish such requirements first. I don’t want to forget to complete the escort request until I’m ready to move up to B rank and when I look at the quest board, there are no escort requests! I don’t want to be in that situation.

 By the way, I heard that fixed parties that reach B rank have to decide on a name for their party. I’ll ask Wallace and the others what their party name is next time I see them.

The deadline for the quest is this week, but if the capacity is filled, they’ll be leaving tomorrow or the day after. The minimum number of participants is three for C rank and five for D rank. This should be no problem for just us.

“What? Do you guys want to take it too?”

When I took the quest paper, it was taken from behind me as if to snatch it.

“What’s your rank?”


“What? How can that be when we’re only ranked D?”

“ How should I know.”

The person who snatched the paper from me was a kid about my age or maybe a year older. Well I’m the youngest to register in the adventurer’s guild, so they’re definitely not below me. I mean, if this guy is a kid, I am a kid too, but I’m not this rude.

“That’s it! You must have cheated in some way.”

Even the girl with the short pink hair got involved. The two girls further behind them bowed their heads and looked apologetic. The other girl is unconcerned and is just dazed. Her atmosphere might be similar to Shana’s. Maybe the five of them came from somewhere other than the royal capital to become adventurers as friends.

“Well, whatever! I’ll show you what being an adventurer is all about with this request!”

With that, he took the request. There are multiple quest posters, so there’s no need to snatch them. And at the end of the day, his eyes were focused on Sophie and Shana, who were standing beside me, so he wasn’t looking at me at all. It was just plain annoying. There’s no need to take the same request as these guys. We have enough capacity. I decided to look for another request.

“Can you give me a minute?”

“I knew you’d come for some reason.”

The guild chief appeared later. I knew she would come, so I watched closely with bird’s eye view and she came out of the shadows right behind me.

“Thanks for your hard work in the inter-school battle, I watched you with my own eyes you know?.”

“Is that so?”

“So it was the highest-ranking lightning spirit?”


I was horrified because she suddenly whispered about spirits right in my ear. After all, the guild chief has an adult charm or sex appeal… Sophie, it hurts? Don’t go crazy. I was bad. 

“By the way, will you accept that request?”


No… I don’t think I’d ever want to take a job with them.

“They’re all high and mighty because they think they’re good.”

“I, see.”

“Honestly, the client is too pitiful to accept it if they’re the only ones. Besides, it’s probably the first time they’ve been asked to stay overnight.”


“That’s why I want you guys to accept the request, including their guardianship.”


To be honest, I want to decline. Or rather, I’m declining. Even though we were the first to take the escort quest, it’s too troublesome to have a kid who’s not willing to be protected to protect. I was about to turn it down, but the guild leader spoke over me again.

“The spirit named Zeal is the highest spirit of lightning, right?  What kind of spirit is the other girl that Zeal and Shadow respected even more?


“You’ll accept my request, right?”

“…I’m sorry.”

“It’s fine.”


I don’t want to hear any more about that, so I guess I should accept the request. I didn’t seem to have a choice so I apologized to Sophie and Shana. Hmmm… I’ll do my best for this quest.

“I’ll accept the …… quest.”

“Thank you! Then come to the reception.”

And then we got the same quest as those guys. But when I think back, there’s a good side to it other than accepting a quest with those kids, at least it convinced the guild chief to give me time before questioning me about the things she really wants to know.
