    “Meeting”

    After a chance encounter with a demonic woman, I returned to the town and headed for the Adventurers’ Guild. The purpose of my visit was to have a meeting with a certain person.

    “Ah, Rolando-san. What happened to you today?”

    “Is Gyrmzak and his party around?”

    I came to the guild to meet the Gyrmzak and the others who I was currently training.

    I asked Nicole, who was at the guild if Gyrmzak and the others were around, and she said they had just been summoned by the guildmaster, so I decided to wait a while.

    “Oh, Rolando shisho. What are you doing here?”

    “I came to talk to you.”

    When Gyrmzak and the others found me, they said that as the first thing they did when they opened their mouths. Incidentally, they were calling me “master” as a result of my decision to let them do as they pleased once the people around me had already discovered that my relationship with them was that of master and disciple.

    At any rate, I moved with them to an unpopular place and explained the actions I had taken today. Of course, I didn’t tell them about the demon woman.

    “W-what a reckless thing to do!”

    “Why are you doing this without telling us?”

    “I’m so glad you’re back safely. “

    “Sensei…”

    “That doesn’t matter now. I’ve almost exterminated most of them, but the Orc King is still very much alive, and there are still about a thousand orcs left in the army. As your final test, I have asked you to defeat the remaining orcs that will be coming in the next few days.”

    “”””What!?””””

    Everyone, who had been wearing a look of dismay on their faces when they heard my explanation, looked at me with wide-eyed astonishment when they heard my supplementary explanation.

    The reason why I did not annihilate the orc kings was partly that I did not want to stand out, but also because I did not want to take all the credit for the work of other adventurers.

    Many adventurers earned their living by killing monsters and selling the materials they obtained to guilds. Therefore, although the attack by the Orc King might seem dangerous at first glance, it was also a chance for D- and B-rank adventurers to earn their own livelihood.

    If I alone were to snatch it away from them, I would be sure to incur the wrath of them, and if I were not careful, I could end up on the street.

    To prevent this from happening, I planned to leave enough orcs so as not to damage the town, while at the same time having other adventurers earn money and take credit so that I wouldn’t stand out.

    Gyrmzak and his party would be the standard-bearers for these adventurers, and I would ask them to take on the task of defeating the Orc King on my behalf. All of this was for my freedom, but I would like them to be able to get the credit for defeating the Orc King.

    “That’s why, do your best to take down the Orc King.”

    “No, no, it’s impossible to be told such a thing out of the blue!”

    “It’s alright. If it’s the current you guys, you’ll be able to win the battle even if you’re badly injured since the Orc King is wounded on his hand.”

    “No, even if you say we can win on the assumption that we’ll get seriously injured……”

    “Yeah, that’s right. You should fight too, Shiso!”

    “Sensei…”

    Honestly, what’s wrong with them? If they defeat the Orc King, they will receive a huge bounty from the lord and be treated as heroes by the people of the city. If they succeeded, the king would hear of their achievement, and they would be recognized as nobles.

    However, as the heir to a former noble family, I would not want to become one even if I was paid money for it, but it would be an honor that anyone would envy. I couldn’t understand what these people were thinking to not accept such an offer.

    “Then, let’s do it this way. I will fight with you on that day. But I will only fight the orcs and the Orc Generals around me, and you will have to take care of the Orc King in the end.”

    “Well, if that’s the case……”

    “I don’t have any problem with that.”

    “It can’t be helped.”

    “If only Sensei would fight with us too…….”

    Apparently, I had to babysit my disciple for that day. It was a hassle, but I didn’t want them to die so easily after I had trained them so well, so I decided to stay with them until the end.

    “Then, for the rest of the days, repeat the training as you were instructed. And on the day before that, you must do nothing to rest your body. Understand?”

    Satisfied with the four who nodded their heads in agreement with my words, I left them there and headed for a certain place to finish one more errand.

    ~~~~~

    I arrived at the door of a room and knocked on it three times. After a while, I heard the word “Come in” from inside the room, so I opened the door and entered.

    “Oh, it’s you kid. Why are you here today?”

    There he was, the guildmaster, hunched over his desk, processing paperwork. Yes, I was in the guildmaster’s room.

    After parting with Gyrmzak and the others, I went to the guildmaster’s room on the same day, but of course, I didn’t visit him without a purpose. I had a purpose.

    “I borrowed this magic bag when I was bringing back the Orc General, but I remembered that I had forgotten to return it. I came here to return it.”

    “Oh, that reminds me, that did happen. I was so occupied with the Orc King after that that I forgot about it.”

    The past few days had been hectic in the town of Rendark, especially since the information about the Orc King was brought to attention. The town was in a dizzying state of flux as non-combatants were being evacuated and forces were being secured to fight back against the orcs.

    The guildmaster, who was leading the operation, was the only one who had not been able to get a decent night’s sleep for the past few days.

    He had been in such good health until a few days ago, but now he had dark circles under his eyes. So much had happened all at once in the past few days.

    “….”

    “What’s up?”

    “Guildmaster. Would you believe me if I told you I’ve half destroyed the orc horde?”

    “…What’s with the joke?”

    He seemed to have a disturbed look on his face at my words, but when he sensed that I was in a serious mood, he too asked me with a serious look on his face.

    “Did you really half-destroy them?”

    “Yeah, there’s an Orc King, two Orc Generals, and about a thousand regular Orcs left.”

    “Really…”

    The guildmaster’s head was in his hands when he heard my words. Normally, he would have dismissed my words as insane, but he couldn’t seem to ignore the fact that I had been acting out of the ordinary up until now.

    “By the way, here are some of the Orc Generals and Orcs I defeated, so please check them out later.”

    “Oi, oi, give me a break……”

    The guildmaster stared at the bag with a puzzled expression on his face as he held out the magic bag I borrowed from the guild, which served as evidence.

    He looked resentful toward the person who had brought in more trouble, but at the same time, he seemed to be thanking me for reducing his burden.

    “Should I be angry or grateful that you brought the trouble? Which is it in this case?”

    “I think it’s both.”

    “I never thought I’d hear those words from your own mouth…….”

    “I returned this for now. The payment for the material inside can be made after the orc case is over. Then that’s that.”

    Having returned what was due and conveyed what needed to be conveyed, I left the guildmaster’s room without further ado. All that was left was the guildmaster with a wrinkled brow and the high-performance magic bag left in his office.
