Disciple of Immortal - Act 1-40
Chapter 40 : White Mage Pomera
TL : Cnine
ED/PF : Sleepy Bee.
A while had already passed since the incident with Octavia. I… still hadn’t been able to find the adventurer’s guild. The one person I’d asked before he’d left had told me its rough location. However, whenever I went to the area he described… I always saw those weird men in robes who carved magic formations on the walls.
It was as if they were working on a large scale construction.
But regardless of how they looked, they might not be suspicious people considering they chatted normally with the soldiers in the area.
At that moment, I felt someone poking on my back. Turning around, I was faced with that wavy blonde-short-haired cane-wielding petite girl. She was the one who’d called over the patrol guards during the previous incident with Octavio.
「U-Uhm, could it be that you’re… looking for the adventurer’s guild?」
She looked timidly at me with an upturned gaze from below her beret. I noticed that her shoulders trembled slightly, and she immediately averted her gaze when our eyes met. Seeing me not react at all for a while to her words, the girl took a step back in surprise.
「I-I must be a bothering you… right?」
She looked like an extremely timid and shy girl. Let’s start with talking to her first.
「Though it’s a big help if you can guide me to that place, you… are the one who called those patrols to help back then, right?」
「M-My apologize, y-you’re being troubled by those patrol guards because of Pomera…」
It seems her name was Pomera.
「No, it’s the opposite, you really saved me back then you kno— Eh, could it be that you’ve been following me since then?」
Though I’d been walking all over the place since then, I rarely passed by the same place twice. Moreover… it didn’t seem like it was a coincidence that she’d called out to me here.
「S-Sorry… I-I actually hesitated for a while… whether to call you or not, and sorry for suddenly turning around back then. 」
I still had no idea why she’d turned around so suddenly back then though. I thought she was aiming for Lunaire’s robe or 《Magic King’s Inquiry》’s choker.
「I don’t mind about that but still… Are you actually worrying about me?」
「U-Uhm, sorry… Pomera should’ve called you sooner since you seemed to be lost in this place but… Pomera… is bad at talking to other people…」
W-What a kind girl you are.
The reason why she’d acted so suspiciously back then was simply because she was a shy person. It seemed that she just kept looking for the right timing to call out to me. I mean, she had kept following me just to call out to me. Meanwhile, if I’d been in her position, I’d have most likely given up immediately.
Understanding the situation, I decided to ask Pomera to lead me to the adventurer’s guild.
「D-Did you come to this place by yourself, Kanata-san?」
「Yes, but well… You might say that I’m kinda in the middle of a journey.」
「… Then… I suggest that you hold off for a while. I mean, lately, the number of low level adventurers dying are on the rise. The limitations being placed are getting more and more severe to the point that an F-rank adventurer can’t take on a commission by themselves.」
「So that’s what happened huh…」
My shoulders dropped, feeling crestfallen at the unexpected news.
Well, I guess I’ll just have to do what I can within those limitations. If possible, I might have to start looking for a comrade.
「Though Pomera wants to introduce Kanata-san to the group she belongs to… Pomera thinks that might be not a good idea.」
Pomera’s dropped, looking down with a sad expression on her face.
Maybe she didn’t have a good standing in her party.
After walking for a while together, we arrived in front of a big building with a large sign mounted atop its door. The sign was embellished with a symbol of a sword upon a white and red background.
It was obvious at a glance from the traffic of armed people entering and leaving the building.
So this is the adventurer’s guild .
After both of us entered the building, Pomera looked around the guild hesitantly. After a moment, she heaved with a big sigh.
「Is something the matter?」
「I-It’s nothing, just… I had an appointment with my party, bu, it seems they left me since I’m late… It’s reassuring since that’s mean I’m the last one coming.」
「C-could it be that you’re late because you were… following me?」
「Eh, No! It’s Pomera’s fault for wanting to call out to you… and unlike Pomera, it seems that everyone comes to the guild after gathering outside, so they’re often late for that reason…」
…You’re basically left out by the other party members, isn’t it.
Pomera shook her head in a hurry as if she read my silent retort.
「I-It’s okay. Everyone… all of them are such amazing people who treat someone like Pomera kindly.」
Well I guess I shouldn’t meddle too much since the person herself was saying so. Though, something about what she said just now made me feel somewhat uneasy. But, I guess an outsider like me has no right in meddling in their party affairs.
Since Pomera had decided on waiting for her comrades around the entrance area, I went up to the receptionist by myself.
「Lastly… please be very careful, Kanata-san. Octavio-san, who made trouble with Kanata-san before is… a D-rank adventurer, he’s already been penalized a few times by the guild for causing commotions.」
So that person really was an adventurer.
I’d heard that the lowest rank was the F-rank, but it seemed that Octavio’s rank was three up from the bottom. So, that meant that he could do an adventurer’s job properly with a low level.
Hearing this information, I was starting to doubt the credibility of Lunaire’s claim about me being far from safe unless my level was above 4000.
「There’s been a rumor that lately, he missed his chance to raise his rank to C due to his bad habits. That’s why I think it’s better if you change your robe and hide your face with hood, Kanata-san.」
「I’ll take that advice as reference…」
It would be better if I could avoid any sort of troublesome things like getting involved in quarrels. Nevertheless, I was unwilling to take off this robe and the accessories given to me by Lunaire just to avoid creating trouble with Octavio. But still…
「Thank you very much for saving me from a lot of trouble, Pomera-san. I’ll make sure to repay this debt someday.」
Pomera looked back at me with a dumbfounded look on her face when I bowed to her.
「E-EEH, my apologies, I forgot to reply since no one has ever said thank you to me before… my deepest apologies!!!」
W-Will this girl really be alright..
I couldn’t help but become more and more worried about her.
