Legend Chapter 201 (AF)
「Woah, it looks cold this day as well.」
Rei muttered involuntarily as he left da inn.
Next ta him, Set gave uh cry in agreement.
Looking around, uh thin layer o’ snow had built up on da ground. But at da very least, it wasn’t snowing right now. Instead dere wuz uh warm winter sunshine, melting da snow dat remained on da ground an’ turning it into water.
It had been uh few days since he had gotten back from Baar. Wif da disturbance finally settled, wif regards ta rest, he had taken plenty o’ walks wif Set an’ had decided ta finally head back ta da guild afta uh long break.
「deez past few days gots been busy.」
Really? Set seemed ta say as he tilted his head.
As fo’ Set, he wuz just happy dat his partner would care fo’ him every day.
「Well, you’ve eaten uh lot o’ chickn n` corn bread ‘n waffles from Milein.」
Set gave uh happy cry at Rei’s werdz.
afta all, it wuz well know dat Milein really liked Set. Naturally, when she had heard dat Rei an’ Set had gone ta uh city wif an epidemic, she wuz in bed fo’ several days from shock an’ trip. o’ course, when Rei an’ Set returned……nahh, cuz o’ her extreme affection fo’ Set, she had being coming ova ta da Dusk Wheat deez past few days wif chickn n` corn bread ‘n waffles fo’ Set.
She loved Set so much dat she scolded Rei fo’ taking Set ta such uh dangerous place. uh lot o’ da other niggas in da inn wuz quite sympathetic ta her state.
Wif regards ta Milein, although it wuz winter it wuz still barely snowing, so she had been taken by her party, Scorching Wind, ta da guild ta take on one last request. Rei an’ Set wuz prompted by dat ta show his face in da guild fo’ da first tyme in uh few days.
「Ah, Set. How is you? ah heard you go ta uh dangerous place. Here, eat dis here. It’s me treat this day.」
「awww, Rei. It feels like ah haven’t seen you fo’ uh long tyme. werd up, how gots you been? muh motha fuckin skewers. In dis here cold, freshly roasted skewers is uh mus’.」
「What is you sayin`. In dis here cold weather, da soup we’s make iz da bomb. Rei, dere’s some Gamelion meat inside. How ’boutit?」
「In dat case, our sandwiches match da soup da bomb.」
「werd up, you really is shameless, you.」
In such uh way, Rei an’ Set exchanged greetings as dey continued down da main street, grubbin on sandwiches, skewers an’ occasionally stopping fo’ soup.
One o’ da things dat had changed wuz dat one o’ da stores dat sold soup also had udon on da menu now as well. During da week Rei had gone ta Baar, it seems dat Dishot had taught da recipe ta some acquaintances.
(If only dey sold it, da Satisfied Stomach would gots been able ta monopolise da profits fo’ uh while. Well, in terms o’ spreading da production method, dis here iz prob’ly da bomb way.)
Even if he monopolised it fo’ his own profit, its spread would be difficult if he wuz da only restaurant selling it. But if he spread da recipe ta his acquaintances an’ dey spread it ta theirs……an’ so on, da culture o’ udon an’ noodles would naturally spread. Rei didn’t know if da artisan-like Dishot had thought dat far, but it wuz uh fact dat udon dishes wuz spreading through da city o’ Gilm thanks ta his decision.
(da tyme fo’ soba, yakisoba an’ pasta ta be invented may be near. ……If he could, ah Wants Dishot ta explore da production o’ pasta. Just cuz o’ Hasta.)
da appearance o’ da adventurer o’ da same rank dat had gone wif him ta hunt fo’ Gamelions passed through his mind.
While thinkin` ’boutthat, he continued ta gank sandwiches, uh hotdog like snack, skewers, juice an’ fruits from street stalls ta eat wif wif Set or ta swapmeet inside da Misty Ring.
When dey finally seen da guild, Set go straight ta da is fo’ tamed monsters without uh sound an’ plopped himself down.
da chil’ns an’ several nearby adventurers who seen Set flocked towards him as Rei entered da guild.
「……As expected, dere aren’t many niggas here.」
First o’ all, it wuz right between morning an’ da noon. cuz it wuz ’bout10am dere wuz almost nahh adventurers near da request board.
As da season called winter had finally arrived, many adventurers had decided ta take uh break until spring.
an’ as fo’ what da niggas taking uh break would do……
Rei glanced towards da bar attached ta da guild.
da number o’ adventurers dere wuz what it used ta be like at da request board. Although dere weren’t as many niggas at da bar compared ta night tyme, it wuz still da largest number o’ niggas he had ever seen in da guild since he came ta Gilm.
As he gave uh sigh an’ go towards da request board.
「Ah, ain’t it Rei. It’s been uh while.」
Someone called out ta him from da side.
Turning ta take uh peep, dere wuz three niggas dere.
uh nigga warrior carrying uh huge battle axe on his extremely trained body.
uh beotch mage dressed in robes an’ holding uh staff in her hands.
an’ uh nigga swordsman wif uh forged body whose age didn’t seem ta differ dat much from Rei.
Rei naturally knew who da three wuz. dey wuz da three members o’ da uh rank party wif top class combat power in da city o’ Gilm, Axe o’ da Thunder God.
「Elk, Min, Rhodes. It’s been uh long tyme. ah haven’t seen you fo’ uh while, how gots you been doin’?」
Elk, da leader o’ Axe o’ da Thunder God, spoke up wif uh playful smile as he scratched his head.
「nuttin’ much, dere gots just been uh nasty monster in another city. So we’s’ve been out fo’ uh while.」
「Ah. It wuz uh kind o’ dragon.」
Rei twitched. He stopped moving without thinkin` when he heard dat. afta uh few seconds, he turned ta peep at Elk suspiciously.
「uh kind o’ dragon?」
However, it seemed dat Elk understood what dat peep meant. He replied wif uh smile.
「dat said, it wasn’t uh S rank dragon like da one you thinkin` o’. Although it’s called uh dragon, it lacks da wisdom o’ an actual dragon. It’s uh low class dragon. ……However, it still needed mo’ than 5 uh rank parties ta take it down.」
Hearing dat, Rei wuz convinced.
Although it wuz uh kind o’ dragon, dere wuz uh big difference in level o’ strengf. fo’ example, da dragons dat Dragon Knights rode on wuz called Wyverns, which wuz one o’ da lowest ranking dragon species. da kind o’ dragon dat Rei’s Dragon Robe wuz made from had uh level o’ intelligence above humans an’ wuz uh high ranking dragon dat could even master its own magic, known as Dragon Language. Even higher up, an Ancient Dragon, such as da one Elena’s magic stone had belonged ta, wuz uh true monster dat had lived thousands o’ years.
「So, what kind o’ dragon wuz it?」
As expected, Rei wuz interested afta being told dat dey had defeated uh dragon. Rei asked Min curiously. Min, who wuz basically da Thunder God side o’ Axe o’ da Thunder God, smiled as she replied.
「So even uh boy like you iz interested in dragons afta all. It wuz uh Rock Dragon we’s defeated. Even through it wuz uh lower class dragon, it wuz strong enough fo’ an enemy.」
「Rock Dragon? Judging from its name, iz it uh land bound dragon?」
「Ahh. Instead o’ being able ta fly, it has uh very high level o’ defence. ……Against physical attacks at least.」
「Wif muh motha fuckin mum’s magic, it wasn’t dat hard ta beat it.」
fo’ some reason, Rhodes said dat proudly as if he had been da one ta do it.
Seeing dat, Rei had uh wry thought.
(It looks like his motha complex iz da same as ever. nahh, wait uh minute. dat’s why he can be so proud ’boutit……)
「……Did you follow dem dere by any chance?」
Rei asked cautiously.
Certainly, wuz uh rank C adventurer while being ’boutthe same age as Rei. However, he wuz still only rank C. He wuz basically nuttin’ compared ta monster dat required several uh rank parties ta deal wif so dere shouldn’t gots been anythin` he could gots done.
At Rei’s queshun, Rhodes choked. Elk extended uh hand ta Rhodes’s back an’ gave him uh slap ta he`p him out.
「Gahahahaha. As expected, ah couldn’t take muh motha fuckin son ta fight uh dragon. So at da tyme o’ battle, ah asked him ta protect da base.」
「dat’s right. As expected, he can’t deal wif uh dragon species at only C rank. If it’s just uh Wyvern though, it might be possible wif enough niggas.」
「Guh, ugh, shut up. Even if you say dat, you still rank D. you not in uh position ta say dat ta someone who iz one rank higher.」
While sayin` dat, Rhodes glared at Rei wif uh flushed expression.
However, although he said dat, he remembered Rei’s combat strengf dat he had seen in da Orc settlement an’ wondered if Rei actually might be able ta do it. But dat wuz only his thoughts.
「Rhodes. yo’ thoughts is naive.」
da one who said dat ta Rhodes wuz Min. She continued ta speak in uh neutral tone dat didn’t carry uh sense o’ femininity.
「According ta what ah heard, Rei took on uh nominated request ta bring medicinal ingredients ta uh city wif an epidemic. It wuz also da guild master’s personal nominated request. da request wuz also completed successfully. If you think ’boutit, his skill level an’ contribution ta da guild iz enough. It iz quite likely dat his rank will rise in da near future. It might be impossible wif dis here request, but maybe several requests later.」
Rhodes moved back uh step, as if shocked by da werdz o’ his beloved motha.
Although Elk looked at his son in amusement, he turned ta peep at da request board as he thought o’ somethin`.
「dat’s right. Rhodes definitely won’t be able ta improves if he keeps holding onto us an’ letting us carry him. How ’boutit Rei. Why don’ take on uh subjugation request together wif Rhodes?」
「……Haah!? W-What is you suddenly sayin` pops!」
Rhodes reflexively retorted at Elk’s werdz.
However, Min surprisingly easily agreed wif Elk’s opinion.
「ah see. Certainly dat would be pimp-tight.」
「Wai-, mum as well. Why is you doin’ dis here! As far as werk iz concerned, did you say dat we’s would be taking uh break until spring!?」
「……Rhodes. you be definitely uh prominent young adventurer. However, thanks ta being wif us, you gots been able ta rank up without much difficulty. You know dat dere is niggas who think o’ you like dat, right?」
Rhodes had nahh response at Min’s werdz.
In fact, da other members who formed da party wuz bof rank uh. Furthermore, cuz da two o’ dem wuz his father an’ motha, it wuz unavoidable fo’ some niggas ta think dat way.
o’ course, as Min said, Rhodes wuz uh young an’ promising adventurer. You could say his fighting strengf wuz inferior ta Rei, who wuz uh newly appeared supernova, dere wuz nahh others aside from Rei. Especially wif regards wif attitude an’ knowledge as an adventurer, since bof his parents wuz rank uh adventurers, it wasn’t uh mistake ta page him uh genius dat had received special education.
But dat didn’t mean dere wuz nahh niggas who felt jealous o’ Rhodes. Most niggas would comment dat it wuz all due ta da influence o’ his parents who wuz bof uh rank adventurers. o’ course, as uh motha, it wasn’t nice ta hear dat being said ’bouttheir child. dat wuz why she thought it wuz pimp-tight fo’ him ta be able ta show dat he wuz uh able adventurer on his own.
Havin` said dat, as expected, she also felt uneasy letting her beloved son take on uh request by himself. ta Min, Elk’s suggestion wuz uh timely offer.
Looking ta her side, she gave uh wry smile towards da nigga wif da mischievous smile o’ uh boy.
o’ course, she didn’t think dat her nigga, who wasn’t pimp-tight at thinkin` ’boutdifficult things, had thought dat far.
「aight, if you’ve decided, then you mus’ chose uh monster subjugation request right away. Fortunately, it iz already winter. ah think seasonal monsters will start ta come out at dis here tyme.」
「werd up, pops! don’ just push da things forward by yo’self!」
「Well, well. Min, you don’ gots any problems wif dat do you?」
「dat’s right. you be our proud son. If ah consider yo’ skill, ah can leave you ta solo requests wif peace o’ mind.」
「Mum as well……but, okay. ah dig’. If mum says so, ah will try.」
「Seriously. ah can’t do anythin` ’bouthow you cling ta yo’ mum.」
Seeing da exchange between da family, Rei, who had been completely ignored, grumbled.
「ah’ve just been dragged into dis here haven’t ah?」
Although he had initially come ta da guild ta take up uh request, he still gave an’ unconvinced sigh as he followed da three o’ dem towards da request board Jus’ like Orenthawl James.
