Strange Grief Wants to Retire ~The Weakest Hunter’s Hero Dream~ - 98.2
Chapter 98 Work
However, those quotas are measures to prevent 『Imitating Hunters』 who register only in name and don’t work, so the Explorer Assoc. rarely revoke Hunters’ title.
The amount of quota a Hunter needs to do is so small that you don’t need to be conscious of it if you do Hunter work normally. In the case you are injured and can’t work properly, it will be more lax and even if you don’t meet the quota once, there is no problem if you achieve it in the next period, so many Hunters have forgotten about its existence.
However, for me this system is an impenetrable wall as I normally don’t accept requests.
Due to the success of the Members of 《Footprint》 and 《Strange Grief》, my merits points continue to accumulate semi-automatically as I am their Leader but that alone can’t achieve the quota.
I don’t remember my quota but basically, the quota is proportional to your Level so the deadline and the nature of the request are longer.
I frown but no matter how much I think about it, I can’t remember how high my quota was. Yeah… Maybe in the first place I have no recollection of doing anything.
“… This makes it how many times already?”
“It is already your third time, idiot! Cry, you rascal, I will revoke you!?”
Since one period is six month, and as it is my third time, it means that I haven’t done anything since one and a half years.
When I am told that, I remember that this year, I had been warned about the same thing six month ago.
Kaina-san smiles while having a troubled face.
“I know it isn’t as if Cry-kun isn’t doing anything at all but on the surface it is only other Hunters who have received requests so…”
“You don’t have to apologize, Kaina. This is because Cry refused when we wanted to add him as a Member.”
Well, it is because I did nothing.
For example, the one who did the body retrieval request in the 『White Wolves Den』 was Tino and co. and for the anomaly investigation request it was Sven and co. Why would I claim that it is one of my achievements if all I did was throw the troublesome request at them without doing anything.
Moreover, most of Hunters’ request rewards are fixed. If I decide to participate, then the rewards for the others Hunter will decrease accordingly. By the way, even if I am rotten, I am still certified Level 8, so my share of the rewards and merits points will be larger so the other Hunters share’s will be reduced.
It would be nice to add my name if the share of rewards for the other Hunters aren’t reduced but as expected, I can’t bother them to that point.
I am aware that Cry Andrich isn’t someone decent as I am throwing away requests, drowning in debt and leaving all the management to Eva, but I don’t remember being so shameless.
“It is unheard, for a Level 8 to not reach his quota and be revoked. Isn’t this a good opportunity? Because If I didn’t call you, no matter how long I wait, you would have never come.”
Is it a VIP treatment to have a Branch Manager purposely coming by himself to call me?
… I am really sorry for all the inconvenience I caused.
However, I am still totally unmotivated to do it.
In the first place, personally, I am not reluctant to be revoked and even if I accept a request, it would be better if it wasn’t a nominated request but a simpler request.
In addition ―― There is also a naive thought that I could somehow fool Gark-san even if I didn’t achieve my quota. That’s right… I am a useless human.
Someone please make a request like creating a miniature Imperial Capital.
“Uuun, actually, I am involved in something right now…”
“Cry-kun, you are always involved in something…”
“Hmmm? What are you going to be involved in this time?”
Gark-san intimidatingly clenched his cheeks and smiled while bending his lips.
This smile… He totally saw through my lie.
With a glimpse, I check the calendar on the wall. I still have about three month left before the end of this term.
In any case, even if I decide to accept a request, I can’t afford to fail a request coming from a noble. I can absolutely not do it alone. I have to get some grace period until Luke and the others return.
Although it was my long-awaited time to enjoy my new Relic, there is now another problem causing me a new headache.
I took the cup of tea that was left in front of me, the still tea was disturbed.
“Mah1 ー There is still some time left and I also have things to do. I will positively look at it and make appropriate adjustments.”
“If you never come here no matter how long I wait, I will go call you again. Oh yes, for the time being, I will hand over the request form I received from Gladys’ family.”
“I don’t need it right now. I will come and get it when I am ready.”
I have a reliable ally. My pride doesn’t amount to anything but in an emergency it would be okay to do a dogeza to Ark and do it together as a joint request.
There are loopholes in the Explorer Association system. The quota will be manageable. The only question is how to turn down Gladys-kyo’s thankful request.
I am tired even though I did nothing. Let’s return to my room and play with the 『Mirage Form』 and carefully think about any good ideas.
Thanks for reading!
Haha Gark, he is dead set to not take this quest!
And wouldn’t him being revoke of his license means retiring in a way? XD
Tchao à plus!
