65th story: Kiss of loyalty!
Edited first by Rambo then by buboleche
“This dagger’s handle is also made using Mithril. Usually only the blade is made from Mithril but with my skill, it is possible to make all of it, from the blade to the handle, hilt, all from Mithril. Hahaha! Just look at how much Mithril I used, I also made a dagger using the same technique but the material is from Damascus. For the staff, it might become a bit heavier if it’s made only from Mithril.”
After leaving the Adventurer’s guild, Yu went to Woods to take the equipment that he had requested. When he entered, Woods greeted him with a smile and immediately brought out weapons and equipment which were unique, not only in shape but also in their material.
The weapons were laid out on the desk and Woods began to explain about them one by one. Yu, Lena and Marifa couldn’t understand what he was explaining but it must have been a good thing since Woods’ face was full of joy and satisfaction. Nina in the back was still dazed off, maybe thinking something about Mussu.
“This is pretty good but I see something is different.”
“Ah, that thing is… I mixed some blue steel as the base. It was a small amount that could only be found in the Urumi mine. There was a special effect, once the owner was decided, it could only be used by that person and enhances their ability. Now I think you are able to reach deeper levels in Golgo dungeon or even go deeper in the large forest dungeon “Enrio Woods”. Inside Enrio Woods, the monsters are undead and have an affinity to darkness. This sword will serve you good.”
“Oh, this one actually has skills added. Thank you uncle. I also heard you got a bow and some armor from inside the dungeon.”
“Ah, that one. Here. please wait.”
Woods went inside and came out bringing a bow and armor.
“This is the best bow that you can get around here. It was designed for elves but a dark elf is not that different from them. The compatibility should be around the same level. The armor is light, leather based. Leather jacket, boots, gauntlets, just for beginners but their durability is good.”
Yu inspected the items and decided to buy them.
“Uncle, as usual, there are no other customers here.”
“Eh, you’re taking it the wrong way. There are no costumers, because it’s not the costumers that choose my store, but I am the one who chooses my costumers. Because of that I can have more time to take in special requests like yours and have more time to handle precious materials.”
“So, like an exclusive blacksmith? I might get cheeky having you as my personal blacksmith but I have to bring you good and rare material I guess.”
Woods’s ears turned red, maybe because he was embarrassed and felt that Yu was teasing him. Yu then looked at Lena who was still staring at the Mithril staff. Marifa was testing the bow strings. Nina as usual was looking around taking guard. Yu then looked behind the counter and saw something.
“Uncle, what is that?”
“Ph, that? It’s a mithril hammer and anvil.”
In the process of creating equipment from Mithril, a Mithril hammer and anvil were needed.
“Uncle, do you sell those?”
“Of course not!”
Woods said that as if a knife had been pierced in his throat. Of course no one knew how expensive it was and if it was taken from him he would need to buy a new one to create more Mithril equipment.
After that, Yu paid the price for the equipment and walked back to the house to prepare dinner. Nina sat at the table and didn’t move even an inch. Lena was trying out the Mithril staff and Marifa helped Yu.
Not long after, the smell of soup and bread filled the room and was then served on the table.
Marifa and Yu sat at the table afterwards. There was a pan on the table too. Inside it, something that looked like melted cheese could be seen. The soup contained lots of meat and vegetables that could be seen when you scooped it. The meat was boar soldier sausage that he made recently. However Nina was still staring blankly in space.
“Nina, is it because we didn’t serve rice?”
“Ah, no … it’s just because I’m still angry at that noble.”
“Yes, this is delicious.”
Lena’s voice could also be heard as she nibbled on the bread.
Marifa on the other hand was waiting for Yu to take the first bite, before she followed after.
“Don’t worry, I’ll eat. I won’t let the food go to waste.”
Nina also started to take small bites and when she tried the melted cheese, the taste was delicious.
“This is…. Good…”
“Don’t speak with your mouth full.”
When Nina took a bite, her eyes became teary.
“Yu, you know I once lived in the Imperial city and then tried to move to Hameln because over there, there was no discrimination among races, it was a good place to live.”
“Stupid, what are you saying. I just bought the house.”
“Uuu, I’m just saying.”
“Are you concerned about that stupid noble? Ah, speaking of which, Marifa as promised I’ll try to cure your throat.”
After that Marifa was kneeling on the floor and Yu put his hand around her neck. Slowly he triggered <<Heal>> and the scar on her neck slowly faded.
“Can you speak now?”
“Ah, yes no problem.”
“Mari- chan! Your voice is so cute.”
“Ah.. good for you.”
Nina was happy like a child, crying in joy while Lena was worried since Marifa mastered the no chanting technique faster than her.
After Marifa confirmed that it was really healed, she moved forward and tried to kiss Yu’s foot which made him back away.
“What are you doing?”
“Do you have a problem master? This is a kiss of loyalty, as if giving my respect to God.”
“God? Who is the God?”
“Mari-chan, Yu is not a God.”
“Maybe it’s something like a dark elf’s custom.”
“Nina, Lena, how come you don’t see it? He can heal wounds like scars without trace, he can cast magic without chanting, if he is not a God then who is he?”
Seeing that, Yu couldn’t help but send a head chop towards Mari.
After that Marifa stood up and walked towards Nina and Lena.
“I have something to tell you girls.”
“What is it Mari-chan? Your face is scary.”
“…you can tell us…”
“Don’t you guys feel embarrassed pushing all the cooking, washing, cleaning to God? I was surprised that this big mansion is maintained by God. Even the baths are prepared by him. You guys should be ashamed just sleeping and eating all the time. And also you girls like to enter his bed at night and disturb his rest. I will not allow this in the future.”
“I-I can’t do anything like cleaning and cooking.”
“For me… I can’t do that too.”
“See, you girls are leechers. Did you even give money for rent and food?”
“Of course, all our quest rewards are given to Yu.”
Nina and Lena said that simultaneously. However Mari still looked at them scarily.
“You know, two weeks haven’t passed since I became the slave of God and even I know how much of a luxury the food served by him is. Even this big mansion, you can count the number of houses with a bath. Nina, Lena you are both D rank adventurers. This kind of living style is not something a D rank adventurer can afford. Your equipment also is something luxurious. That Gorudoba necklace you have on Lena, you can’t know how many elves and dark elves dreamed to have it. Your total equipment costs more than 3000 gold. This time, the Mithril equipment that God purchased. Mithril dagger, Damascus dagger, mithril robe, snake dragon leather gauntlets, all costing more than 20 white gold (200 gold).”
Nina and Lena’s expression hearing that went cloudy. Yu was like come on Marifa tell them more. Kuro, who was keeping silent, while being surprised at how scary Marifa could be.
“And Kuro! You know God is asking you to guard his bedroom. Why did you fail every time? Please know your place and do his orders carefully.”
From his expression it could be seen that Kuro, who did nothing wrong, was feeling like someone had stabbed him in his heart.
“Yes God, please give me your order.”
When Yu called her name, his facial expression was different than usual.
Marifa’s ears were twitching, waiting for further instructions.
