“Are you surprised?”


I heard that the amount would be less than monster information reward.”


“It’s like that normally.
But this time, 2 out of the 4 people arrested are on wanted list for murder.”




“I was leading them to an internal fight, but one of them said ‘One of them killed people.
He threatened me.’ I was really surprised at that time.”


“Uh huh.”


“When I looked up for the man he said, his face and figure were similar to a person on wanted list for murder.
But his name is different.
I thought that was strange and looked it up, turned out his family requested a search for him.
He was the tallest one among them, do you remember?”


“Yes, I think he was the scariest one.”


“Is that so.
When I looked up that man, I found out that the name’s owner is dead.
It seemed he killed him and stole his name.
If he used his real name, he would soon be traced, right.
But when I investigated him, he said ‘Not just me, that woman as well.’”


“Uh huh.”


“It was a difficult investigation.”


“You did a good job.
Is the reward so high because they are on wanted list?”


“Hmm? Yeah, that’s one of the reason, but the 2 ladall are from the guild.
Because there is bounty for catching the two murderers.
The reward is 1 ladall for one person so 2 ladall for 2 person.
Reward money is usually 500 dall per person, but this time it is 1 gidall for each of the murderers, and 500 dall each for the remaining two, the total amount is 3 gidall.”


“…Umm, I’m not registered in a guild, is it alright?”


“Eh, is that so? Ah, but they will pay the bounty even if you aren’t registered in a guild.”


“I understand.
Even so, they were chased by people and even bounty was placed on them.
It’s good that they got caught.”


“The two murderers were sentenced to be slaves forever.
The other two were sentenced to be slaves for a long period, so we can have peace of mind now.”




“This time, Altra the fortune teller was away, so it took a while to confirm it.
I’m sorry it took such a long time.”


“It’s alright.


“What is it?”


“If Altra the fortune teller is here, can you confirm it faster?”


“Yeah, those people with fortune telling skills can judge people.
People with one star can judge whether someone is lying or not.
People with two stars are amazing because they can judge whether someone committed a crime or not.
Those with three stars are able to know who did what kind of deed.”


“Is that so.”


“Altra, this village’s fortune teller has 2 stars, so even if people lie, they will be found out.
They are an amazing person, they also judge the type of crimes roughly for us.
I feel sorry because we are always relying on them.”


“How amazing.”


I didn’t know that fortune teller did such jobs.

The fortune teller who helped me told me a lot of things, but she didn’t talk about her job very much.

I also didn’t know that she had something to do with the village’s local specialty.


“Now that you mention it, you aren’t registered in the guild?”


Ah, I have to explain it properly.


Umm, because I ran away from Latomi Village.”


“Ran away? Not them reducing the number of people to feed?”


“Yes, I’m sorry I didn’t tell you earlier.
My family was close to the village head, and the village head…saw me as expendable being….”


“So that’s what happened.
You have to run away even though you’re so young, what are the nobles over there doing!”


The nobles are the people governing the village, right.

They got along quite well with the village head, though.

I’ve seen them from a distance, but honestly, they have an unpleasant air around them and I didn’t want to approach them.


“But if you are on a runaway, I think it will be better to register in a guild after you become an adult.”


“After I become an adult?”


“If you are a minor, they may send a report to the village where your parents are living.
You can explain your situation so they don’t send a report, but we can’t make sure that the information doesn’t get leaked somewhere.
There is no problem if Latomi Village changes, but we can’t put our hope on the information not getting leaked.”


A report.

Ah, I can’t register even if I become an adult, though.


“How old are you?”


“I’m 8 years old, turning 9 in roughly a month.”


“Even though you’re so young, you’re amazing, Ivy.”


“That is not a big deal.”


“Oh, our conversation went off the track.
Um, what was it? Ah, yeah, I need to give you the money.”


2 gold coins and 3 silver coins were prepared on the desk.

This was the second time I saw a gold coin.

I took out a small magic bag given by the old man from the store where I bought my tent.

I put the money inside the bag, then put the bag inside a slightly larger bag and wrapped it around my waist.

I’ve decided to save up some money before winter, but I’m getting worried because I’m carrying around a large amount of money.

I must be even more careful during my journey.


“You don’t have an account in the guild?”




“Hmm? Aren’t you worried about carrying around your money?”


“Um, I thought I can’t deposit my money if I’m not registered in the guild?”


“Eh? Nah, there’s no such thing.”



What do you mean?


Is my knowledge wrong?


“Certainly that’s the case with adventurer guild, but in merchant guild you don’t need to register, you know.”


“An account in merchant guild?”


Can I open an account with the merchant guild?


“First of all, carrying your money like that is dangerous.
Let’s go to deposit them.”


“Can I deposit my money without registering in the merchant guild?”


“Ah, if you’re going to do business, you will have to register, but you’re not going to do that, aren’t you?”




“All you need to make an account is a drop of your blood for individual judgment, that’s all.”


“Is that so, I didn’t know that we can make an account with the merchant guild.”


“Ah~ it has just been 10 years since the merchant guild was established.
They only open in the royal capital, towns and big villages, so I guess not a lot of people know about them.”


I see, so they only open in places with a lot of people.

Anyway, I’m going to have my own account, I’m so happy.
