15-15 Get rid of the first goblin

Good luck with that, doctor!
"...... Yeah, sure.

 Lean and I had lunch at one of the stalls around the corner, and then we went back to the Adventurer's Guild.
 As soon as we entered the guild, an old man saw us and called out to us.

"Hey, Noor, you. Why are you with Master Linneburg? ......? ...... And what's a teacher?
"Master. As an adventurer, I am 'Lean'. And I don't need a teacher.
"Oh ...... yes, yes, yes. I'm sorry, Lean.

 I'm sorry, Lean." The uncle apologized to Lean, then looked at me and whispered.

"...... Noor. What happened to you, ......? I was looking for you this morning. Did something happen to you yesterday, ......?
"...... is very difficult to explain. ......

 I looked at Leanne's face, trying to figure out how to explain it.
 When our eyes met, she smiled at me.
 No, she didn't smile at me. .......

 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.

I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that. ...... No, it's a rule here not to pry into other people's affairs. Sorry. Forget about that.
I've got nothing to hide.

 As for me, I don't mind you prying into my affairs, in fact, I even want you to consult with me...

So, what do you want? You said you were going to the woods, so I thought you wouldn't be coming here today.
I had a change of plans. I was wondering if you could help me with a client.
A client?
Yeah, something we can do together if at all possible.
"Just the two of us." ......

 He glanced at Leanne, who was standing behind me.
 She's been in a good mood ever since, but I still can't figure it out.
 Why does she want to follow me like this?

 I tried various ways to clear up the misunderstanding, but somehow, it seems to have given her a more serious misunderstanding.
 As a result, she is telling me that she will follow me anywhere.
 ...... What was wrong with ......?

 Honestly, I'm very confused.

 I was going to do my usual training today, but I couldn't take my eyes off Lean, who hadn't left my side for a long time, so I decided against it.
 In the event that you've got any questions regarding where and the best way to get in touch with your loved ones, you'll be able to call us at the web site.

 ...... There's no way around it.

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.
 That's why I came here looking for a job that might be just right.

I've been looking for a job that might be just right for me. "Can I introduce you to ...... Lean was a 'Silver Class'. If you have a party, you can at least take on a request to kill goblins in the area around the royal capital.
"...... goblin extermination ......?

 I was so shocked by the uncle's answer that I turned my head away.
 Goblin extermination?
 I thought that I would never be able to accept a request to kill a goblin.
 I thought it would be a long time before I could take it.

 I'm sure you'll be able to accept ....... ......!

Really? ......?
Yeah, if you have a silver level party member, you can get a silver level commission. In the event that you've got a lot of money to spend, you'll be able to get a lot more than you would like.
So, ......, what is the danger rank of the goblin exterminator?

 You'll be able to find a lot more information on the web.
 You have to make sure you know what you're doing.
 It is true that goblins are the weakest demons that novice adventurers can defeat to test their skills.

 But I've also heard that defeating them can be dangerous.
 I wonder what the level of danger is. ...... In some cases, I may be putting Lean in danger by going with him.

"Goblin slaying? A novice. That's three ranks below silver class.
"Well, then...

 Three ranks below. Good.

 I shouted, unable to contain my anticipation.
 But then I suddenly realized something.
 That's just a way to take advantage of Lean's adventurer rank.

 She had been so annoying just a moment ago.
 I'm a cash cow. .......
 This is a little embarrassing.

 Besides, before I could accept the request, I had to party with her.
 Will she be okay with that?
 If she says no: .......

 I glanced at Leanne's face.

I glanced at Lean's face. "...... How can I help you?

 She looked at me uneasily, as if she could see my expression.

I'm sure you'll be fine. As for Lean. I'm going to be relying on you to help me with this story. ......?

 I felt guilty, as if I were taking advantage of her, so I whispered a little.
 But Leanne laughed and said, "Oh, I don't care.

Of course, I'm fine! If I can be of any help to you, please use whatever I have. I will follow you wherever you go, so please feel free to ask me anything.

"Oh, I see. ......

 She said it was okay.
 It's a bit deceitful and shameful to rely on such a young girl, but still, this is one of my dreams.
 I'd love to go to ...... and kill goblins.
 But would I be able to handle such a job?

 I glanced at the uncle's face.

...... Don't look so worried. Well, with a silver-grade lean, you'll be fine. But take it easy, okay? I'm sure you'll be fine.
"...... Yeah, I think I know what I'm capable of. No pressure.

 Thanks to the uncle's words, I felt somewhat relieved.
 But I'll keep my head up.
 It's going to be an unknown adventure for me.

So you'll take it?
"Yes, please.

 When I answered, he pulled out a map from his desk and showed it to me.

He showed me the map and said, "All you have to do is report the amount of hunting you did in the areas on this map. The part to prove your kill is your right ear. Don't forget to bring it back with you.


Well, there have been reports that their numbers have been decreasing recently for some reason, so maybe you won't find any of them... but in that case, pick some herbs and come back. You can buy those too.

 The uncle laughed, wrote some papers, and stamped his hand.

You can go now. But be careful, you might get hurt.
Yeah, I know.

Be back by dark.
Yeah, I'll be there. Come on, Leanne.


 And so we headed for the Forest of Monsters near the royal capital, where goblins were said to live.
