When I returned to the village, I saw the gatekeeper checking people getting in and out from the entrance gate.
I wanted to meet him.

He is Captain Argud, isn’t he?


Or is he Vice Captain Verivela?

Come to think of it, I didn’t know which one is the captain and which one is the vice captain.


“Welcome back, you seemed to have a terrible morning.
Are you alright?”


May I address you as Captain Argud?”


“Hmm?…That reminds me, we haven’t introduced ourselves, have we?”


Uh, my name is Ivy.
The tent is very comfortable to sleep in.
Thank you for choosing it for me.”


“Hahaha, that’s good then.
I’m the captain and my name is Argud.”


Good, seemed like I was right.

If I made a mistake here, it would be quite rude.


“About those adventurers, well, they were the guys who made information from other villages and towns as target of their survey.”


“Survey target?”


“Yeah, they find fault in young adventurers in other place as well, and snatch away things they see.
There are a lot of criminal complaints filed to the guild, but it is difficult to prove ownership of your things, right.
The guild is having problem with capturing them.”


“And then I became their survey target?”


They are also crafty, they know that it’s difficult to track stolen things, and they act based on that fact.
Well, the tent I chose for you is sold by a famous old man in this village.
There are enough evidence and testimony as well.
They’re done now.”


“Looks like so.”


“It must have frightened you.
My bad.”


“I’m, I’m alright.
I swear.”


“…Promise me to not push yourself too hard?”




“But it was amazing, you know.
Verivela is doing investigation since a while ago, well, the result is out now.
I am currently comparing the result with the criminal complaint files I received from the guild, but there are other crimes that are not included in the files, it became a bit hectic.”


There were some evil people among adventurers, but they were being chased by a lot of people already.

I was glad I bought the tent at the store introduced by Captain Argud.


“And then, you will get a little reward money for your contribution towards the arrest.
I don’t think it will be as much as monster information fee, though.”


“Huh? But I didn’t do anything?”


“Nah, it would have been hard to prove their crime if you were not there.
And it won’t hurt to get some money, right?”


“Well, yeah.”


“Great! Because the amount of money will change a little depending on their prison term, please wait for a bit.”


Reward money.

There are a lot of things I don’t know.

I’m glad about the money when I think about my future.

I thanked Captain Argud once again and returned to the adventurers’ area.

Ah, I forgot to tell him that I ran away from Latomi Village, not expelled to reduce the number of people to feed.

I wonder when is the correct time to tell him about this?

It was hard to revise things you had said before.


When I arrived at the adventurers’ area, the caretaker who helped me this morning was on duty.


“Thank you for your help.”


“Welcome back home.
Did you ask him?”


“I’m home.”


Even though Captain Argud also said that to me before, but I was kinda startled to hear someone said ‘welcome back home’ to me.

Was it because it sounds so unfamiliar to me?


“I asked Captain Argud about those arrested people.
Ah, right.
Uh, my name is Ivy.”


“Hmm? Ah, I’m Roigurd.
I am the caretaker of this adventurers’ area as well as the village’s patrolman.
By the way, is the captain on duty as gatekeeper just now?”




“I see.”


I returned to my tent after I greeted Roigurd-san.

I closed the doorway and took Sora out from the bag.


I forgot to go to the dumpster and pick up what I needed for traps.

What should I do?

Should I go there now?

…Somehow, I’ve been tired since this morning because a lot of things happened.

When I looked at Sora, it was sleeping already.

How quick.


“I guess I’ll retire for today~”


I’ll just check the contents of my bags for now.

I think I can make 2 field mice traps.

But I must to go to the dumpster tomorrow.

I don’t have enough potions for Sora.

Let’s sleep for now.

I’m so tired~
