43-Departure as usual

 Day 7 of the labyrinth search.
 Even though Hans-san has left, what we do is the same as always.
 But the first thing that happened today was an unusual argument in the tavern.

"Master, I'm the strongest man in the village. I can pull a stump out of the ground.
"Bullshit! I've wrestled better than you.
You can go boast about your strength somewhere else. By the way, Master, I think you should extend my magic power.
"Hey, Sensei. I'm sure we youngsters would be better than the old ones!
Shut up, you little shit!
You're the one who needs to go f*ck yourself!

 You're the one who should go f*ck yourself!
 Perhaps it was because the villagers who had risen to a higher level had spread the word, but the labyrinth fever was now growing at a frightening rate in the Village of Beginnings.

 Just by going there for a day, one's physical ability would increase dramatically, and in addition, one would receive meat and other souvenirs.
 No wonder I wanted to participate.

 In addition, this morning, he was told that the crab meat soup he served at the tasting party was not good.
 The soup was so delicious that they forgot about it and started a sales war, which became heated and resulted in an argument.

Everyone, please calm down. We'll take anyone who wants to come.
"But, sir. When are we going to go to the underground labyrinth?
No. You're not taking us there at all!

 The one who complained was a group of people who were practicing their bows.
 They are just amateurs, and they won't improve much by just shooting at the target in the dark.
 The truth of the matter is that if they do not become more proficient, it will be difficult for them to become a fighting force.

 However, when an archer grows up, he can be a powerful ally.
 I can't just shun the men who are working hard here.

Don't worry. "Don't worry. Those who become archers will be asked to raise their levels more.

 The villagers, who were immediately recognized as warriors, voiced their grief and condemnation.
 There were so many of them that it was a bit noisy.

"Quiet, everyone!

 It was the village chief, Dirk, who raised his voice.
 At the same time, the sound of Paula's sharp whip rang out, and the tavern fell silent as if it had been hit by water.
 Looking around at the gasping villagers, the demon race man said in a clear voice.

There are a lot of people who seem to misunderstand, so let me tell you something. The only reason we can enter the underground labyrinth is because of Nino-sama. If you take advantage of his favor and insolently ask him for help, you may be called out for your outrageous behavior. I will consider expelling you from this village if you continue to behave like this.

 In the event that you have any questions regarding where and the best way to use the site, please do not hesitate to contact us.
 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think it's a good idea.

 I'm not sure if I'd be able to do that if I were you.
 No, I don't mean to be so indebted to him, but it's common that when demands increase, work that should be prioritized tends to stop.
 However, if the dissatisfaction is left unresolved, the organization itself may become unstoppable.
 What should we do now?  

"It's ready, sir.
"Yeah, what's this?
You know who's going, right? Then this will be quick.

 What Mia held out to me, smiling, was a bundle of straw.
 If you look closely, you can see that the tips of several straws have been colored.

"I see, a lottery.
"I see, a lottery. Okay, everybody draws.
That's great, Mia. Excellent solution.

 The chief's exhortation seemed to have an effect, and the villagers began to line up quietly to draw lots.
 The villagers lined up and began to draw lots, and reacted violently to the winners.

"d*mn it! d*mn it! d*mn it! d*mn it! d*mn it!
d*mn, forgive my ungrateful father. ......
Has the heavens forsaken me? ......

 In a way, it sounds like a lot of fun.
 So this time, the four of us, with one more person, were successfully selected.

"What? Didn't the village head draw a lottery?
"There's a little story about that. It seems that Nino-sama has been taking all his wives with him lately.
Yes, Carina, you're an important teacher for the goblins.
Is that so? How high is your wife's level now, ......?
Uh, 16, I think.
She's only ............4, like me.
That's a good point.

 The village chief looks into my eyes with a straight face.
 It's more than a little scary.

I'd like to suggest that you take me with you.

"If this continues, my husband will lose his dignity. Isn't that too much to ask?

 What kind of dignity is lost just because someone pulls out your level? .......
 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it's a good idea.

"No, you can't. You can't cheat.
Oh, no. ......

 I'd like you to stop seeing men as old as your father falling to their knees in dismay, because it breaks my heart.
 I hurriedly put my hand on Chief Dirk's shoulder and forcefully encouraged him.

There will be a time when the village chief will be called upon, so please be patient until then.
Are you sure?
"Yes, and you'll be up to speed in no time.

 The village headman immediately put on a radiant expression.
 I wondered if this village was really safe.

 I stood up, looked around at the villagers who were also silently regretting their actions, and then opened my mouth.

Let's do this. The meat caught in the underground labyrinth has become quite plentiful, so from now on we'll distribute it free of charge, little by little.

 The color of the eyes in the tavern instantly changed at my declaration.
 After checking the reaction of the villagers, I continued with my words.

For those who accompany me and help me plant the fields or help me make tools, I will give you the reward you desire in addition to that. And for those who accompany you, the later you are, the more you will be paid. How's that sound?

 This may be too lenient.
 But the most important thing is to get the villagers on board.
 If Paula is the whip, I am the candy.

 After a moment's pause, there was a cheer that shook the building.
 The villagers, who had been at odds with each other earlier, were hugging each other's shoulders and shouting with joy.
 It's too simple a thought.
 Maybe they would be happy if we just changed the number of food in the morning and evening.
 I wonder if this village is really, really safe.

If you still have any questions or concerns, please contact ....... If you still have questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Ute at .
I'll take care of it. By the way, who do I talk to about my complaints?
Well, that's ........ I'm sure Hans will make you a lot of money.

 At my words, the barmaid dexterously closed one eye and waved her hand in the air.
 Apparently, it was a joke.


 Just in time, Yoru and Kuu, astride a blue slime, opened the door and entered.
 At this time of the morning, both of them were making their rounds in the plaza.
 They were followed by a group of small children.

 When they are all there, I finally say my usual words.

"Well, I guess we'd better get going.

 How difficult as usual.
