Journey of an Exiled Middle-Aged Adventurer Becoming a Hero [Chapter 6]

Directly to me?

“Here is your reward! We will also add an extra for driving away the demon creature.”

“I’m sorry for causing so much trouble…”

“Don’t worry. The fact that you scared off the demon creature is what matters.”

Scratching my head, I accepted the reward.

I feel a bit embarrassed.

“So, here you go.”

As I said that, I tossed the money bag to Elisa and Yui.

“Hey, can we have this?!”

“Is it okay to take it?”

“You are my comrades. Don’t hesitate to accept it.”

“But do you really want to keep this, Kyle-san?”

Seeing a bill in my hand, Elisa curiously asks.

“It’s fine. I have my own savings. I must give back something to the younger generation.”

“Yes!”

“Thank you!”

I have really come a long way from what it means to be human.

Before, I wouldn’t have been able to repel a demon creature in one blow.

Although I was told at the hospital that I’m in good health, perhaps it would be good to have a check-up from time to time.

“Even though I really don’t want to go, it would be a problem if something unexpected happened.”

I used to find many excuses not to go, but…

“So much money!”

“What would you like to eat today?”

I have made some friends now.

It would be a disappointment for my companions if something bad happened to me and saddened them.

I really don’t want to go to the hospital.

“Oh, by the way…”

As I sighed thinking about the hospital, the receptionist tapped my shoulder.

Turning back, it seemed like she was reviewing a request.

“Kyle-sama, you have received a request. It’s from a noble.”

“From a noble? For me?”

“Yes, that’s right. You’ve been standing out a lot, Kyle-sama. It seems you’re also catching the attention of the nobles.”

It’s the first time someone personally requests me for a job.

It looks like I’m becoming famous.

I don’t feel too good about this, but at least now I have friends, so maybe it’s for the better.

“From a noble! Really?!”

“Is that true?”

Elisa and Yui come closer and examine the request.

“It’s from the Count!”

“The payment for this is incredible!”

Hmm. Well, as expected from a noble, the payment is a substantial amount of money.

“However… The mission’s target is a worm, huh? What a nuisance has come up.”

It’s a complicated foe, it burrows in the mountains and is enormous.

It’s a real pain in the neck.

“Furthermore, this is good news for ‘Hero’s Proof’. If you complete this mission, we will consider promoting you to rank B in our guild!”

“Really?!”

“Is that true?!”

“Yes, of course. We consider it inappropriate to keep the party that has fulfilled a noble’s request in rank C. It’s something our guild cannot allow!”

“Great!”

“This is our chance!”

As both girls got excited, I patted their shoulders while sighing.

They are very young.

“We haven’t completed the mission yet. Why are you getting so excited?”

Although it’s only under consideration, it’s too early to get excited.

“Also, think about the consequences that come with suddenly ranking up. You can’t rely solely on me, I hope you’ll fight alongside me.”

“Understood!”

“Y-Yes!”

“If you understand, then it’s fine.”

Patting their backs, I stretch my muscles.

“So, how large is his territory? As a count, he surely has his own domain, right?”

“Yes, of course. From here, it would be a two-day carriage ride to Count Rieton’s territory.”

“Two days, huh? That means we’ll make a stop along the way.”

If it were just me, traveling by carriage would be fine, but with two girls…

We should probably stay at an inn at some point.

“Both of you, how much money do you have on you?”

“Well… all that we just received from you.”

“I don’t like leaving money for the next day…”

“Seriously… you two are so young and carefree…”

While I thought they might have some savings, it turns out they had nothing.

Well, keeping the economy moving is important.

“No problem. I’ll pay for the accommodation and meals. In return, I hope you’ll work hard.”

“Of course! I’ll give it my all!”

“Yes!”

“It’s good to hear such enthusiastic responses.”

With that said, I headed towards the receptionist.

“Is the carriage ready?”

“Yes, of course. It’s all set and waiting in front of the guild.”

“And what if by chance you’re not available to take us?”

“That would be a problem when that time comes.”

“Well, it’s comforting that you trust me.”

With that, I headed towards the door.

“Well, then, let’s give it our all from this moment on!”

“Yes!”

“Let’s do it!”

“Haha. They are really energetic!”

After my response, the two of them advanced excitedly.

And they turned towards me.

“Let’s go on an adventure!”

“We’re off!”

“To adventure…!”

The enthusiasm of the young ones is really intense for a thirty-year-old man like me…
