CCM 24 – Yo, That’s Some Sudden Change in Treatment Tho


[So… Senpai.]

[Hai! What would it be, Arios-sama!]

.

The adventurer old man then just randomly started to escort me says <be careful>.

.

Just what brought this change all of a sudden.

Did my strikes earlier perhaps hit him somewhere bad, or the second royal Princess Reimira gave him some really bad trauma.

.

No matter which, I scratch the back of my head as I speak.

.

[Would you tell me the result of the exam? Whether I passed or not…]

[Yes! That is obviously a pass! Although judging whether Arios-sama passed it or not is too presumptions on my part!]

[….I-is that so…]

.

Nevertheless, I am now finally an adventurer as well. Though I wasn’t able to become a sword saint, this isn’t bad by itself.

Rather, with the obligations of living up to the name of the Makuba household behind me, I can now move more easily.

.

[Arios! I know you can do it!]

[Fufu. You did well.]

.

Rei and Kaya then congratulate me with their shrill voices.

Both of them look so happy like it’s something they have achieved for themselves. Seeing them like that is actually enough for me to be happy.

.

[…Amazing.]

.

And beside the two, is the guild’s receptionist – Elisa, who ends up repeatedly opening and closing her mouth. 

.

[For Arios-san to actually be this skilled… Nevermind being a failskill, aren’t you already comparable to those who are in rank S….]

[Haha… I wonder about that.]

.

Well, I ended up learning the source of Makuba’s swordsmanship, the Sword Origin. 

On top of getting other abilities with cheat code manipulation, even I don’t really know how to properly evaluate my own powers.

.

Well, even so, I don’t have any intention to show off.

It just doesn’t sit well with me.

.

[Let’s now return to the guild’s counter! Arios-sama is more than welcome to do so!]

.

And now, Elisa who’s been obviously in doubt of my abilities earlier, is full of smiles as she urges us to move faster until the counter.

.

This is how my life as an adventurer will finally begin, I guess.

Oh, just to mention but it seems that the starting rank everyone has to go through is rank E, and by everyone, they really mean it for all adventurers regardless how strong they happen to be.

.

[My apologies… I personally believe that Arios-san rightfully belongs to A rank at the minimum, but, I’m sorry…]

.

As such, Elisa is profusely bowing her head to me apologizing. It’s kind of making me now feel bad as well though.

.

[Haha… It’s fine. I won’t get mad over something like this.]

.

An adventurer’s rank shouldn’t just be judged based on one’s combat abilities.

And that is especially applicable for me who hasn’t learned anything but hold a sword and slash and swing. Anything else apart from swordsmanship, I might just as well be a salted fish.

.

[Ah… Right.]

.

I completed all the final procedures when something important suddenly came to mind.

.

[Elisa-san, do you buy materials here in the guild?]

[We do. Perhaps you have something you want to sell right at the moment?]

[Yes. Uhmn, this one right here.]

.

I am taking the materials out of my pouch as I am talking with Elisa.

.

[First would be the fangs of a black grizzly.]

[Oh, sure. A black grizzzzzlllllllyyyy’ss….. A BLACK GRIZZLY!?–!]

[Yes. Here are claws and fur of a black grizzly as well… Then here’s a giant orc’s…]

[P-p-p-please wait for a second!! I-I-I can’t handle materials of this level! So please give me a moment!]

.

Elisa grabs the materials and handles them as if she’s carrying a heirloom as she goes further back into the counter. 

.

[What didja say!? Is that true!?]

.

What appeared then after a strange shriek instead of the fine young woman is a grandpa with some classy beard.

For some reason, he’s face is all red and flustered.

.

Aree?

Weird.

This person seems kinda familiar…

.

.

[Hmm, uh, huh hmmm, uh huh… hmmmm……HMMMMMMMMMMM..!?]

.

This grandpa was checking out the materials and afterwards, he looked at me at last.

.

[These… Have you brought all of these?]

[Y-yes. I was the one who brought them.]

[Impossible… How can this be…]

.

Grandpa seems dumbfounded.
