It had been two weeks since Alise Bate, who had been permanently exiled from the Kingdom of Muiren, had been welcomed into the neighbouring Kingdom of Merus, and was now approaching the third week.
“Why is this happening ……”
The Duke of Basler was looking at the records of the war and had his head in his hands.
The military strength of Mullen’s kingdom was being reduced while the number of casualties was increasing day by day.
The responsibility for this goes to the son of the Duke, his chief of staff, as a matter of course.
“How do you intend to take responsibility for this?”
Accusations against the Duke and his son began to pour in from the country’s top brass as brothers and sisters.
“I guess the problem is that they removed Alise Bate from the position of chief of operations, don’t you think?”
The king, who rarely speaks out, spoke up.
‘Keh, never. ……
‘I see. But I can’t watch our military power continue to languish. Do something about it as soon as possible.
“Yes, my brother.”
The duke looked as if he had bitten down on a bitter worm and went back to his mansion.
‘What has happened to Alise Bate since then?
The duke must be afraid of Alise’s repercussions when he could just let it go.
”I am pleased to report. Currently, it seems that Arise is being welcomed in the royal capital of the Merus Kingdom. She has registered as an adventurer and has already, I hear, obtained an A-rank.”
‘What! Utterly and utterly troubling.
“Do you want me to dispose of her?”
‘No, since it’s that Arise. We will have to tread carefully. We’ll still have to wait and see. Thank you for your efforts.”
Once again, the duke’s mind was preoccupied with building up his military strength.
As I thought, the impact of Alise leaving the country was not small.
Alise and Asil had collected the goblin’s core.
Each demon has its own core, which was the proof of its defeat.
”Alright, we’ve retrieved the cores, time to head back”
Alise and the others were going back the way they came.
When they passed through the checkpoint to enter the royal capital, they headed straight for the guild headquarters.
“Please report the completion of the request.”
Alise handed the Goblin cores over to Asil, which she kept in her magic bag.
‘Yes, thank you.’
Asil was at the guild’s reception, going through the formalities.
‘Please check them!’
After completing the procedure, Asil came back with the guild card in his hand.
”I’ve been promoted to C-rank.
Asil’s guild card had changed from iron to copper.
”You did it!
‘Thank you, Alise. Thank you.”
So, what are you going to do now Asil?
“I think I’m going to head to the Labyrinth City. I’m not yet good enough to fight with you, Alise.”
“Well, I won’t stop you, then. I’m afraid I’m going to have to leave you for a while.”
A labyrinth city, it is a city for adventurers, where adventurers gather in droves.
They dive into dungeons, called labyrinths, to hunt monsters and collect materials to earn money.
This is the kind of life in the city.
“It’s a bit lonely for me, too. however, It’s for the sake of getting stronger.”
“Yes, I’m counting on it.”
Alise and Asil exchanged a firm handshake.
TN: Seriously tho. Gonna add at least 2 more chapters today.
