The Deadbeat Master and Genius Disciple’s Misunderstood Workshop - Chapter 10.4
“Oh, good to see you, Johnson. I’m surprised.”
“What’s going on? Since you’re in civilian clothes, you’re not going to be doing your rounds today? Oh, I don’t suppose you could have taken a day off for security at the festival? Then let’s go for a drink afterwards.”
“Huh, Johnson. You’re always talking about drinking, aren’t you? Why don’t you cut back on the booze? Unfortunately, it’s not a holiday……… Plainclothes… I’m just making the rounds. There’s some suspicion… movement.”
“Damn, really? It’s a shame to see you here. This is why they serve their country, you know. Don’t be so adamant, captain. You’re a heavy drinker too, aren’t you? …What is that? Over there.”
“Hmm? What’s going on? Mm. I’m afraid I made a mistake too… I’ve been asked…? You guys over there, wait up!!!!!”
For some reason, my best friend, Mike, who’s a dwarf, shouted at the start of a fierce sword-play, and the trio ran away with their tongues clacking.
“Hey, I’m not going to stand by and watch you, Captain! Let’s get out of here!”
“Fuck! Why do you want to be in this place!”
“Hey! There it is!”
Seeing this, Mike runoff looked very happy.
“No, it’s fun! I’m going to drive them back to Norsethwamp Street! Hmmm…….maybe I should join in.”
Norse Swamp Street…
I’m sorry for your troubles…
But from now on, if I see this guy in a bar, I’ll let him stay away from the bar.
It was a close friendship
“Hey, Anis. You’ve had a hard time.”
It took some extra effort, but I finally arrived at my destination.
There, I called out to the shopkeeper, Anis, who was looking somewhat tired and dumbfounded.
“A resting place for the water spirits.”
By the way, I myself have never been allowed to use this place.
Because, by accepting the request, I’ve entered the category of acquaintances.
“Raines-sensei. Thank you for your help earlier. I don’t know what to do, but he was so persistent. I’ll have to think of something to do. Oh, and please thank the person who said that. I’ll give you a free service if you want.”
Anis said in a clear voice.
His age is unknown, but he looks to be in his twenties on the outside. But since his appearance is almost the same now as it was in the past, he may be half of a sub-race of some kind. And I doubt it.
The most distinctive feature is the blue and brown odd-eye. But the blue one seems to be a prosthetic eye, and when you look at it closely, it looks strange.
“I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to find the right one. I’m sure he’ll say he doesn’t want it. The reward for him is already….. No, let’s not go any further.”
“? Really? I’m sorry to hear that. Be that as it may, if sensei is here, does that mean you’re here to make a request?”
“Anis talks fast, doesn’t he? Right. He’s a little quicker than usual, but I’m in a bit of a bind. I’m sorry to do you a favor, but as a thank you for what you just did for me, I’m going to have to move up my usual request for an order.”
“Yes, that’s fine. And since I’ll be thanking you again, I’ll add a little extra to the reward… Yes, I’ll add a little extra to the reward. Oh, right.”
Anis clapped his hands with a pop and then looked a little melancholy.
“I have one more favor to ask of you, if that’s all right?”
“It’s getting colder, and I have a few girls here and there who are not feeling well. I’d like you to give her some medicine for that as well.”
“That’s fine, or rather helpful – but is it good for a cold? How many?”
“Yes. The number is … about this many, including spares.”
“There’s that many. I don’t know if it’s enough. I guess we’ll just have to go out and get them. All right, I’ll take it.”
“Please. Take care of yourself, sensei.”
Anyway, I’ll get paid if I deliver this………
I feel like I’m starting to have a little leeway. Alright, let’s get back to the workshop and head out.
I bailed to Anis and I turned on my heel and started walking.
“Wow………that’s the kingdom there just now, isn’t it?”
“Yeah. Telfiana, the capital of Lacrasia rules by King of Selen”
We were now on top of a slightly elevated hill off the south side of the “Lumes Road” that runs from the eastern gate of the capital.
From this location, we can see the western royal capital and our destination, a small forest.
“Oh, is that the castle? Wow, it’s so big….”
“Yeah, it’s a big one.”
