Seems like I have a few things that I’ll have to think about.
If we have to take baths and change clothes separately, that would cause a significant amount of worry for each of us…
An apartment with a bath… Not a dormitory but a cheap rental house.
Rita: “Hey Nagi… What do we do about this guy?”
Turning back, Rita looked at Tanaka.
Tanaka was muttering while he stood there smoking, burnt all over and missing half his hair.
Sure, the [Blessed Armor] has a magic reduction ability that makes the [Arrows of Flame] feel like mosquito bites. However, humans can still die if they’re stabbed by a huge number of mosquito bites.
Rita: “I can have the finishing move right? Can I?”
She placed one foot on top of Tanaka’s head, ready to crush it.
Nagi: “Don’t dirty your foot, you just took a bath.”
Rita: “Yes master.”
Nagi: “It was the Earl who hired Tanaka, wasn’t it?”
I looked towards Leticia who was staring at the scene dumbfounded.
Leticia: “Ye… Yeah.”
She replied after taking a short breath to compose herself.
Leticia: “He was the one who order this guy to attack the [Common Guild].”
Nagi: “Any idea what we can do to retaliate?”
Leticia: “I don’t think there’s much that we can do.”
She shook her head with a tired expression.
I can’t agree with that.
Nagi: “He’s the same person who confined Aine who tried to oppose them. The aristocrats cannot complain if the tables get turned on them.”
If you decided to stir trouble within your opposition, you should expect opposition from them.
Leticia: “If you insist…”
In any case, we better get out of here.
I left Cecyl to Rita.
Despite the fact that both of them were sweating hard, they still smelled good.
Then, I carried the unconscious Aine to a chair.
Actually, she looks asleep rather than unconscious.
Nagi: “First, let us have a discussion, Leticia.”
Nagi: “I owe Aine. First, she referred a quest to us in secret. Then, she gave us a skill.”
Nagi: “So I want to help her. However, we’ll be risking our lives in the fight with the [Steel Gargoyle]. Hence, I have a favor to ask of you.”
Leticia: “Help… I could use some of that.”
Leticia looked at the defeated Tanaka in silence.
It seems that she acknowledged our strength.
Leticia: “So, what is the favour that you need from me?”
Nagi: “We’d like a moderate-sized and sturdy place to stay. Hopefully, you can introduce us to such a place at a cheap price. Ideally, it should have more than 2 rooms and have a bath built in.”
After a little bit of thinking, Leticia said.
Leticia: “I have a vacation house in the port city of Irugafa. I inherited it from my dead mother, so the ownership belongs to me. As for my dad, he doesn’t know about it. If you don’t mind, I can lend it to you.”
Nagi: “What about the rent?”
Leticia: “If you take care of it, then you can use it for free.”
Nagi: “Thank you, that’s really helpful.”
With this, we have obtained a place to stay.
Ever since I came here from the original world, I did not have a place to settle down.
There simply is no way that we can keep up that kind of lifestyle.
