For some reason, Atai and three other new employees were brought into the wilderness.
Atai and the others are now....
--I was at a loss.
........Let's rewind time a bit.
Atachi and the others were stunned.
Yesterday, the announcement was made that we had passed our exams, and we were expecting to start our lives as employees of the inn. I'm sure the innkeeper, Carla Grice, also told us that she's starting her training today.
But when I woke up in the morning and the three of us went to the meeting place in good company.......
-- in the wilderness.
You wouldn't understand. I don't understand it either.
I said "good morning" to Kara, and she said "good morning" to me, and the next thing I knew I was in the wilderness.
You may think I'm crazy, and I'm confused enough to want to say who I'm explaining to, but it's true. I want you to believe me.
As proof, one of the other two "Carmine Silves" who came with us is somewhat distant-eyed and pondering over something. This is called escaping reality. He'll be back in a while.
The other rookie employee "Luka Tunkuft"........I don't know what he's thinking. I don't know what he's thinking about. I thought he was good at reading people's expressions.......
As expected of the 【Hime Lily of the Slayer】.
Ah, I didn't hear Luka's two names, I knew them. The Hyakuninzari is quite famous among female adventurers. I found out from an episode I heard when I was accepted.
Well, I put that aside and of course I voiced my protest, or rather my doubts.
"Why are you here? I mean, where is this place? I asked him, and Silves started to reboot and joined in the questioning.
According to Kara-san's story, this is the remains of the industrial city 'Goldie'. In the past, the Demon King, who was on the verge of conquering the world, sent 2,000 demons to the "Goldie" where Marutai is said to have been based at the time, in order to kill Marutai's gang, and a fierce battle ensued, and this is the site of an industrial city that has become uninhabitable.
It is located at a point southeast of the royal capital, Clanclan. To the south, there is a mountain range containing rich ore, to the west, a majestic river flowing from the range, and to the east, the great abyssal sea of trees where elves are said to live. Despite its natural abundance and abundant resources, it was a place where people didn't come and go too much, and it seems to have been a place where many eccentric scientists and researchers moved in and developed into an industrial city.
This is a land that is currently cut off from all countries, and since the demons are strong and adventurers rarely come close, it's a great place for training.
I don't know what makes it a good place for training, but now that I know where we are, it's okay. Goldie's site is not a place you would visit quickly even if you asked for it, and I'm glad I did. But that doesn't change the fact that I was in the capital just a few minutes ago, does it? Really, you should tell me what's going on...
After all, they didn't tell me............................
So, next thing you know, you'll be wondering what kind of training you're going to do in a place like this? That's what we thought. So I asked.
"Oh, what kind of training do you have going on in a place like this?
'Yes. First of all, I want you all to be strong.
I don't know what you're talking about. I'm dead serious. "Are you demented? That's what I thought.
And I thought to myself, "That's really rude," and I thought to myself, "Why?
"Why? You have a look on your face, don't you?
That's true..... Isn't this kind of training at inns usually used to teach greetings such as 'Welcome to the inn' and the inn's manual and so on?
Yes, I'm sure what I'm saying is correct. Of course, each inn has its own way of training, but what kind of training is the first one that says, "We're going to make you strong"?
Even we, last night, were wondering what kind of training we were going to do. Or, 'Isn't the basic greeting practice or something?' We were even discussing it, you know?
Carla's explanation seemed to answer my question.
Normally, we would have that kind of training, but I didn't receive that kind of training myself, and I didn't have any desire to increase the number of employees, so I didn't make any manuals or anything like that.... Well, I'm thinking of making one from now on, but...
Karla's explanation left me speechless. I was surprised to learn that the inn doesn't have a manual.
When I asked her about it in detail, she told me that they had decided on the rules for eating and cleaning times, but they were just rules to make sure that the guests were comfortable and safe, not the inn's manual. Therefore, she said she had to deal with guests and guide them through the inn by handling everything on the spot.
As Luka, who said last night that he had visited the inn many times, said enthusiastically, "Carla-san's response is organized at a very high level, so I think the training of manuals and manners will be very strict.
'So I think you'll have to deal with greetings and such on the spot. We hope that you will learn the minimum rules and then you can do whatever you want with the rest. And the reason for you to become stronger?
'As I think I said when I was recruited, the innkeeper must be extraordinarily strong to make it. We have to fight rough guys and so on, so...
'And there are many reasons, but there is another reason why we need you to simply become stronger...'
Is it something other than self-defense?
Silves, who has rebooted, asks back without pause. This kid seems pretty solid for two names........
''That's right. Let's see, there's one chair here.
With that, Kara pulled out a chair out of nowhere. The chair was slender, but not so slender that it could be hidden behind Kara-san. Where on earth did she really take it out from?
Is that a chair at the inn?
Where did you get that from? And as Atachi is inwardly plunging into it, Luka replies this time, as if nothing has happened. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.
You are correct. These are the chairs in the dining room of the inn. Now, Mr. Licure. The chair is in the dining room of the inn.
What's it all about? It wouldn't be a problem if I could just carry the chair....
With that in mind, I put my hand on the chair to try to lightly lift it up. It was a chair made of ordinary wood that could be found anywhere. If it's like this, lightly...?
What the hell? It's insanely heavy!
Do you understand? This is why we need you to be strong outside of self-defense.
Kara's voice sounded unpleasant.
This is not good.........
