o, and when I say I want to travel to different countries, they’re kind of taken aback.
But then they say that means we’ll probably meet in the Dungeon Town.
Now that I think about it, the Kingdom of Elesya doesn’t have any dungeons.

We have fun talking, until it’s time to say goodbye, as the wagon stops at a crossroad.
I jump down from the wagon, and don’t forget to say thank you.
Siphon and the others still have two more days ahead of them before they reach their destination, where apparently they are going to hunt spiders.

Yuno doesn’t like that, but it seems they took the quest anyway because the pay is just too good.
I don’t think anyone would want to hunt giant spiders.
It’s so creepy.

The path gets narrower for me from this point forward, and the pavement is worse compared to the main road.
It’s not like a wagon would be unable to pass through here, but it wouldn’t be comfortable.

I reach the village just before the sun goes down.


In front of me is a crumbling gate.
The gatekeeper… Shows up after I stand here for a while.

“What do you want!?”

I feel like I’m asked something like this in every village.
Do I really not look like an adventurer?

“I’m here for the wolf hunting quest.”

“…Wolf hunting…”

He seems disappointed.
It’s not like I said anything wrong.

“Ah, sorry.
I’ll take you to the village chief.
Follow me.”

I guess my expression shows what I feel, and he apologizes.

I brought someone who accepted the wolf hunting quest.”

A middle-aged man appears from the back, looks at me, and then looks around.

“Are you alone?”

I’m Sora, a D ranked adventurer.
I work alone.”

“…I see.
Thank you for coming all this way.
Lantz can tell you more about this.
Please take him to Lantz.”

This way.”

The gatekeeper takes me to this Lantz’s house.
We’ve been walking through the village, and I feel like I’m being watched.
The village looks like it’s in tatters too, but did wolves do this? That house looks like it’s slanted.

“Lantz, an adventurer is here about the wolf hunting quest.”

Ou… A man comes out with his head and one of his arms wrapped in cloth.

“Wolf hunting? Do you know about the terrain of this land?”

“It’s more or less in my mind.”

Lantz explains it to me in a way that’s both easy to understand and correct.
It matches what I see in Map.
I actually feel bad for having him explain it to me.

“This village…”

My question is interrupted by the voices of the many men and women surrounding me.
Although I saw them coming with Map.

“Are you an adventurer?”

“Please, my daughter… Save my daughter.”

“Please take those things down.”

“…My wife was taken.
I implore you to bring her back.”

“Are you the only one?”

“Take revenge for…”

T-too close.
Their faces are too close.
And their eyes are scaring me.
It feels like they’ve gone mad.

“Calm down, all of you.
I’ll explain, but know that this is too much for him.”

“Lantz, but…”

“He came here to hunt wolves.
And he’s D rank too, so it’s impossible for him.
You’re basically telling him to go out there and die.”

“But Lantz…”

He glares down another man that’s still trying to insist, until he quiets down.
This guy is scary, there’s so much pressure coming from him.

People reluctantly leave.

Everyone’s on edge.”

“What happened? By the looks of things, it looks like the village was attacked.”

“Yes, it happened just the other day.
But before we get into it, come to my house.
We do have an inn, but it’s in no condition to accept guests right now.”

I take him up on his offer.
