The mercenary guild welcomed another special person. During this time, good shows had been appearing back to back, which added a fun twist to this New Year’s Day. The owners of the purple mercenary badge should have been be very rare since it only belonged to the highest in command. Despite that, in just two days, two purple badge holders had shown up. The head of Providence City’s Mercenary Guild was only a silver badge holder. That was a huge difference in levels, so they must be very respectful to them.
So, who was the newcomer? At that moment, on the top floor of the guild, in the branch’s main office, carrying a serious expression with the top of his head bald, stood the head of Providence City’s Mercenary Guild branch. A man who had gone through many battles now stood answering the questions of these two uninvited guests with the utmost respect.
“Yes sir, thanks to the magical barrier that was left behind by Princess Asil during the previous era. The barrier was activated in less than an hour after the order was given. Now not even a fly can escape Providence City.”
The brown-haired warrior nodded. His serious and resolute face softened a little when he turned to the lazy young man next to him, then he asked, “Hill, why are you also here?”
The young man known as Hill raised an eyebrow, “When did I ever need to report my whereabouts? The matter at Nightmare Forest has been solved, so I came to take a vacation.”
The brown-haired warrior’s eyes flashed a smile, but his tone was still as cold as ever, “Yes, from now on you have one half-month holiday.”
Hill was dissatisfied, “I have been in that forest for a few years, and all I get is only half a month for vacation? I need at least half a year.”
“No, five months.”
“Fine then, three months.”
“Deal, then for the next three months, can you not bother me?” After that, Hill stood up and stretched his waist, and with his hands behind his head he walked out of the branch office.
The brown-haired warrior muttered to himself, “Can you not, instead of you can not1.”
Still not knowing that his words had an exploitable loophole, Hill walked to the guild hall. Like any ordinary mercenary, he looked at the tasks on the red crystal panel. His eyes seemed to inadvertently sweep the top blue S-level task and purple SSS-level mission before swiftly shifting his line of sight.
At the same moment Xi Wei, who passed by Xiao Wu, clearly heard her words, and a vague guess began forming in his heart. Now he just had to confirm it.
Xiao Wu had pretty much finished growing, and there were seven to eight points of similarities. It was not difficult to recognize her if one looked carefully. The dress she wore was from the temple; apparently she was studying to be in the clergy. In Providence City she definitely had an esteemed status. It was not strange to be able to meet the candidate of the next light saintess, Belle.
Evan had been pacing around the dormitory all morning and the other roommates had gone back to their bedrooms to avoid getting dizzy by watching him circling the room.
The search personnel sent by the mercenary guild had yet to find any clues and Evan, who had always been very optimistic, felt anxious.
When he saw Xi Wei, who finally came back, he could not help but be slightly relieved.
“Xi Wei, you’re finally back, did you find anything?”
Xi Wei did not answer, instead he asked back, “What special program is there after New Year’s Day?”
Although Evan did not understand the reason for the question, after being around Xi Wei for this short amount of time he already understood a little of Xi Wei’s personality. Xi Wei would never ask anything irrelevant, so he honestly replied, “After the New Year’s Day celebrations, because of the heavy snow, we celebrate the Snow Sculpture Festival.”
“Will everyone attend?”
So this chapter was super short, so i felt it would be a waste not to just finish it because it wouldn’t take long anyway. So here it is. XD hope you guys enjoy!
- Ok so i had to twist this around some to get the meaning around, but basically brown haired warrior found a loophole that means he is able to come bother Hill. ↩
