Kamisama no Kago wo Kyohishitara?! Chapter 486

486 Serious Retirement


"What do you wanna us do? Ain't you generous."

I told him straight.

"I want you to buy time. It's nothing complicated, really. Keep that Bandoro guy at bay until things are settled here. Make up excuses, reasons, rejections, refusals, anything. Heck, you can even tell him about that guarantor stuff Chief Raie mentioned earlier. I don't care what, just get me time. Use any means necessary. You gotta make do with this much. I'm not paying extra once you're done."

"What are you planning... Well fine. I'm not this band's leader anymore. Oy, ain't that right?"

The leader's question was met with silence.
One of the mercs stared at the leader for a while before opening his mouth.

"You're our captain until this mission has been taken care of. Please don't abandon your duty midway through."

Man must be a pretty good leader if his underlings trust him this much. Enough to make them forgive his betrayal.
Each of these mercenaries probably have their own reservation about him retiring too. Might have struck a chord there. It's one possible future they have after all.
This whole mercenary business is just that precarious.

"...I got you. Sorry 'bout this. Then, uh, we're taking your request. Us mercs are a simple creature who follows the highest bidder... Do you despise us?"

"Nah, I like how simple and uncomplicated it is. Grab the gold before your eyes than chasing a mirage. But, won't this lower your rating?"

"It wasn't a formal commission. All of us here just gotta keep our mouths shut. Ain't nothin' to worry about."

The group left afterward.

"I wasn't sure how things were going to turn out at first. You're quite incredible. How did you do that anyway? Are you a mage? A master at that?"

Chief Raie threw a volley of questions my way. But I won't entertain her.

"That doesn't matter, does it. More importantly, please take me to the griffon. I'll deal with it. Ah, you don't have to go all the way. Just bring me near the griffon. You're only gonna get in the way."

"Oy! You mean now? What's the bright idea? No, I guess I can't talk after what you showed us, but who are you really? What's your end goal?"

One of the workers protested.
Hence, I told him my honest feelings. Doesn't matter if he believes me or not.

"I simply took a liking to Waking Grass. I went all the way here to stabilize the market price. Of course, me wanting to visit the production site was genuine too. Nothing more, nothing  less. Ah, but I've just made the decision to give that Bandoro guy a beating of his life."

I'm quite angry at finally finding something I like in this world only to get myself dragged in such a boring scheme.
The worker shivered at the 'beating' part.
I bet I got an evil look on my face there. The chief who was in front of me turned pale too.

"Could you please lead the way. We don't have time to waste. If you would."

Thus I'm off to get rid of the griffon.
