The soft-spoken old man sat down face to face with Alise.
“Please sit down. I’ll have some tea ready for you.”
At the grandfather’s urging, Alise sat down.
At that moment, a cup of tea was placed in front of them.
“Once again, my name is Wolff, and I am in charge of the city of Kimze. I have received the title of count from His Majesty the King.”
When he said his name was Wolff, a gentle expression appeared on his face.
“My name is Alise Bate,”
Alise also bowed her head.
“Yes, I know. I saw you for the first time at the certification ceremony. Marquis Dion was really paying close attention to you.”
“You came to the certification ceremony?.”
“Yes, I’m relatively close to the royal capital, and I wanted to see for myself the third and first female S-rank adventurer in the country.”
Come to think of it, she had heard that the Count hadn’t made a substitute.
“I think I understand why the Marquis looks out for you that much.”
To that extent, Count Wolff laughed
“What’s that mean?”
“Alise, you don’t understand, do you? maybe because I’ve been alive for a long time, but this is the first time.”
I guess it’s more years than a turtle’s back. – TN: gonna investigate this. probably something to do with age and wisdom
“I was told to save the secret plan for last, and if I had to use it, I was told to prepare a more subtle approach.”
“Ho, funny thing to say.”
Wolff laughed gently.
From Alice’s point of view, she couldn’t understand this old man at all.
She couldn’t read his thoughts from his facial expression.
This was the first time for her.
“By the way, Alise, do you have a place to stay today?”
As she sipped her tea, Wolff asked.
‘”No, I haven’t decided yet,”
She hadn’t yet decided on a place to stay as Erich was going to arrange the accommodation for her.
“Then you can stay at my place. There are plenty of rooms to choose from. You are welcome to stay with us.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah, it is not always enjoyable to eat alone”
Wolff’s son was now independent, his daughter had married and his wife had already passed away.
He missed eating with someone
“If that’s the case, I’ll take you up on your offer.”
“Thank you. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a good drink.”
Was this a trend that everything needed to be accompanied by alcohol?
“Lady Alise, I’ll go move the carriage.”
After saying this, Erich walked towards the garden.
“By the way, why are you headed to the labyrinth city, Alise?There is no need for you to level up anymore.”
Wolff asked her.
“I’m going there for an investigation,’
“I see, I heard there was a new Labyrinth discovered”
“You were also notified?”
“Yes, I mean you need to pass through this city to get to the Labyrinth city.”
The shortest route from the royal city to the labyrinth city was through this city.
Of course, there would be some news floating around.
