Episode 23: big fish in a little pond ①
There are lots of books that are sold by Collet. Books about jobs and their classification, monster information, dungeon and skills. He bought them all.
“Yu-san I didn’t think a rookie will buy books about skills and dungeons, please don’t be careless. ”
Collet is looking at Yu impressed.
” It was just to gather some knowledge. If rookies don’t do this, they’ll simply die. ”
” Ridiculous. If a rookie got overconfident because he doesn’t know their own power.. most meet a painful experience. ”
While chatting, Collet also helped Yu with selling monster materials. While another one takes Nina to change jobs.
” You have a lot of rank 2 monster materials. Are you sure you’re not going to use your guild card? ”
I was reluctant to give her the Guild card. Afterall they may see my status. I didn’t feel easy. I definitely won’t use the guild card.
” Even if you’re selling monster materials, you will get points like doing quests. ”
I give her the guild card while keeping a watch on her.
” Yu-san, this is your guild card. You’ve been promoted to F rank. ”
” Eh? Just from selling materials I ranked up to G? ”
” The amount of material sold is even better than what F rank adventurers usually manage to sell. ”
(and it isn’t strange to be an E rank adventurers either..) [Collet]
The money received is 3 gold and 8 half silver.
” Collet, you even treat a child like me with respect . Thank you. ”
Yu said thank you for the first time to Collet. If only he met her when he arrived on this world.
” That’s stupid. I’m just doing my job as a Guild official. If there’s something you need in the future, please feel free to contact me. ”
Yu put the money inside the pouch from Lena. Then he heard a loud voice.
” You guys. .. ”
” What? You are a good for nothing old man. ”
” Don’t say that, I’m only 28 years old. ”
” What? You’re going to tell me to do a quest like finding a missing cat? ”
All this time I hid some of my status because anyone could suddenly cast [analysis] on me.
” If you want to talk then let’s not do it here. ”
” You don’t have to worry, I’m just telling you that to hunt monster you need to try to find their attack pattern. ”
It was Lalit and he was giving advice. It seemed like he was a D rank and with a little bit more he could reach rank C. He may be good natured but his way of speaking makes the mood bad.
” What’s with the noise? And where is the new rookie? ”
Behind Lalit, a 2m tall man who reeks of alcohol stands there. He was so big, is he a half-giant? I was tempted to see the status. Lalit stats were higher but this man is in another dimension.

“It’s.. You… ”
” Lalit, bullying another rookie? ”
” Did you want something from me uncle? ”
” Why uncle? I’m still 34 years old”
“Well.. ” Lalit and me said that in harmony.
” Did this rookie do something to offended you? ” Lalit even speaks in respect, this uncle may be famous.
” I just heard that there is an excellent rookie. I just wanted to have a spar and check him out. ”
(Yu: it’s funny, given our differences in level)
” Lalit is it? If you do something to him, I’ll kill you. ” Joseph said that while smiling but his eyes weren’t. Lalit froze on the spot.
” Why? You are stronger.. Why this rookie? ”
In the back of the Comer guild hall, is a training field. Usually there are lots of adventurers but today it was empty. Because Joseph began beating everyone.
” Use this.. And try not to die. ”
Yu received a Habiki sword from Joseph and tried to cut him.
” Oh.. I hope you start to get serious. If not, this isn’t going to be interesting. Anyway, your strength is 300.. No 400?”
Yu swings it with both hand but it was stopped with Joseph hand. He is also smiling. Yu tried to move back and take some distance.
“Die! [sword strike]! ”
” disturb attack. ”
However Joseph is preventing Yu by attacking a dozen times at once. However it was a strange thrust that Joseph didn’t anticipate.
(Joseph: the turbulence thrust didn’t work? It was a sword technique of lvl 2. It should stop the [sword strike] .)
” Old man, let’s end this. ”
Yu is barely holding on because of the status gap. Then he used [body enhance].
” That skill? Who did you teach that? Adventures usually do that to enhance their sword attack.. More importantly, without chanting? ”
Joseph is surprised because Yu’s [body enhance] is covering his whole body.
” This is a skill that I created on my own! ”
” Square slash. ”
Left, right, up, and down, it was a sword technique that blew away Yu’s sword.
(Joseph: the rookie [swordmanship] is at least level 3 mastered. Haha..)
At first Joseph was not serious but he gets more immersed the more he finds Yu is interesting.
Nina was already there. She was taken there by Lalit.
When the old man blows Yu backwards, my head feels blank.
” [Critical strike]! ”
(TL note: seems like there is sword technique which is different from a skill. Nina unleashed critical strike that comes from dagger strike lvl 1 and the square slash also the disturb attack is a sword technique that comes from sword strike lvl 2)
Nina jumped at Joseph while unleashing [silent step], [stealth], [body enhance], and completed by [dagger strike] .
“Miss? Did you know this boy? ” Joseph dodged using a sword and a [dark magic] decoy. The moment, the dagger clashed with each other, a clashing metal sound is emitted.
(Joseph : even this miss used skill without chanting)
Nina received a rebound because of the magic. She collapsed on the spot.
Although Lena wanted to join but the level of the fight is too different.
” Fiuh.. At least I don’t have to worry about the sleeping beauty. ”
“… You dare…”
“What did you say boy? ”
” I’ll kill! ”
Yu is surrounded with a dozen of fireballs floating in the air. His eyes are clouded and only directed at Joseph.
