Strange Grief Wants to Retire ~The Weakest Hunter Dreams of a Hero~ - 142.2
Chapter 142 Stalker
The town’s bigwigs looked a little resigned. They can’t make a prompt decision on a Golem that they haven’t even seen perform yet.
I hesitated a little, but I decided to check with Sytry.
“Sytry…… Can’t you make it a little bit cheaper?” (Cry)
“Eh………… How much would you like?” (Sytry)
Sytry stared in wonder and looked at me.
This is new, how much would I like, you said…… Don’t tell me you are going to sell it at the price I will say?
I am not an Alchemist, and I don’t know the value of a Golem. I also know that I am not in a position where I can interfere with her work.
“………… As it is for the safety of the town. Right…… You can have them pay in goods instead of a cash payment or something…………” (Cry)
“In goods is it? The only thing this town is famous for is its Onsen, although……………… Logging concession……?” (Sytry)
“After that, I think it would be better for them to see the actual Golem in action for them to be convinced……” (Cry)
“I agree…………” (Sytry)
Sytry looked thoughtful. I am not going to ask you to do it for free, but even if I did, you probably wouldn’t do it.
She respects my opinion as much as possible, but by no means she is compliant with it.
After a while, as if Sytry had collected her thoughts, she smiled and hit her hands.
She approached the townspeople, who were discussing with a serious expression, and raised a cheerful voice.
“I have decided. If you are troubled ―― We will lend you the Golem completely free of charge for the duration of our stay! This is a kind offer from Cry-san. As it would be troublesome if more Onsen Dragons appeared during our vacation…… So it isn’t too late to see its power before you decide to purchase it.” (Sytry)
After closing the business talk which became close to volunteer work, we took Sytry, and then the four of us walked around the town.
It seemed she didn’t bring any Golem on her, so apparently, she was going to manufacture them here. Sytry is such a hard worker.
“………… Is it fine?” (Cry)
“Yes. Because…… It is for Cry-san……” (Sytry)
Sytry nodded without hesitation at my question for the umpteenth time.
I am an amateur, but even to me, this time deal clearly seemed to be a losing deal for Sytry. In the first place, the town of Surus is a peaceful town. The only discomfort I felt was that the town felt a little vacant because there were no tourists.
I don’t think there will be any invaders coming from the outside during our stay, so the Golem would probably not be sold.
Or rather, it was for me and not for the welfare of the people of the town?
However, Sytry didn’t answer my question and closed the distance between us by half a step.
A faint sweet scent drifted from her hair.
Was it the smell of her shampoo? I have never said it out loud, but it is a very nice scent that makes me want to accidentally bring my face closer to it. My head feels a little dizzy.
That is when Liz walked in between me and the *nikoniko* smiling Sytry.
“Cry-chan, don’t be fooled by her explicit way to earn some points! I am sure this girl is definitely going to use today’s incident as a favor for when she needs it!” (Liz)
“I wouldn’t do that………… You are too skeptical, Onee-chan! Right, Cry-san?” (Sytry)
“Un, un you are right.” (Cry)
………… I had this happen to me on a regular basis. Like “Speaking of which, I lent you some money, why don’t you come to visit my room to play next time.”.
Well, it was my fault for borrowing her, and somehow I ended up piling them up.
As I watched the Smart sisters *wahwah* arguing, I enjoyed the peacefulness.
Tino too seemed to have recovered a bit from the emotional trauma she suffered during the battle against the Onsen Dragon.
All that was left to do was to bide our time in the Onsen until the 『White Swords Gathering』 was over. A lot has happened, but all’s well that ends well.
It might be a good idea to be in charge of Liz and Sytry for a while and let Tino, who had been caught in the middle between the two sisters and had suffered through a lot, roam freely.
When I was lazily thinking about such leisurely things, I suddenly saw a large carriage in my sight.
It was a shabby carriage pulled by a skinny horse.
Could it be a new tourist? As I stared blankly, the door opened and a man with a deathly pale complexion came down.
I unintentionally stared at him.
He looked so different that I didn’t recognize him for a moment, but there was no doubt.
The man who got out of the carriage was ―― Arnold Hale.
He is a Level 7 Hunter who goes by the alias 《Heavy Lightning Strike》. He is the man who has been targeting me for some unknown reason.
His body was bandaged, his hair was shaggy and his cheeks were gaunt, but there was no mistaking the man who had been causing me so much trouble lately. Next came Arnold’s companions who were with him and Gilbert-shonen and his companions.
Their atmosphere was different. Some of them were wearing different equipment. They didn’t seem to be seriously injured, but their gait was wavering and they looked like they were full of wounds.
The fact that I noticed Arnold and his companions while they haven’t noticed me was proof of that. Under normal conditions, it would be impossible for me to notice them before they did.
Are they stalkers? However, if they were stalkers, they wouldn’t have shown up in a shabby appearance like this, their appearance seemed as if they had just survived a disaster. I know this because I have been in a disaster in the desert myself.
…… How can this happen when I was on my long-awaited vacation. I wonder if God hates me.
Tino opened her eyes. Liz checked Arnold with her eyes, and a smile appeared on her mouth. This pattern is bad.
We should leave this place before they notice us. The other party was probably too busy, they weren’t looking at their surroundings.
I squeezed Liz’s hand and stepped back.
As if we were switching places, Sytry stepped forward.
There wasn’t even time to stop her. She moved toward Arnold and clapped her hands as if to welcome him.
There was no surprise on Sytry’s face. She had a full smile on her face like she had predicted this development.
“Well, well, well…… Welcome to Surus. You were quite late, Arnold-san. I was tired of waiting. You were so late that Ti-chan took care of the dragon, you know……” (Sytry)
“…… Huh!?” (Cry)
Don’t tell me Sytry…… You had predicted this development? How did you manipulate Arnold’s behavior?
I don’t understand it at all, but if you had predicted it, I wanted you to tell me about it. I would have changed my destination to another Onsen if I knew about it……
Arnold’s eyes turn toward Sytry, then to me, and then he widens them to their limits.
Then, his giant body swayed, and Arnold collapsed on the spot without uttering a word.
Thanks for reading! And thank you to Mohammad for the donation! As we reached the goal there will be an extra chapter Sunday!
Well, well, well, looks like Arnold and co made it out alive, but he was so shock of Cry’s powaaaa that he collapsed!
Looks like Cry mind break him without putting a foot out of the town XD
By the way, it seems like Sytry personal shampoo was really effective on Cry!
