Chapter 26 – Lord Class Monster Takedown Quest

“Kein-san, please, you must not accept this quest.”

Inside the usual Adventurer Guild. Instead of the usual herb collection quest, Elena had presented Kein with three monster extermination quests. Goblin Lords, Orc Lords and Ogre Lords had been appearing frequently on the back roads of Mount Kuko, and the three written quests wanted them defeated.

Elena, in a shaky voice, repeatedly told Kein, ‘please do not accept these quests’. Even being told this, it was impossible for Kein to successfully complete them anyways given his current strength.

Elena had been threatened by the sword princess Anastrea, to show the quests to Kein until he accepted one. Although because she insisted that she absolutely must not tell him to just ‘accept it!’, the situation had devolved into this.

Kein rubbed his neck and thought hard about it. What kind of riddle is this, showing me the quests but then saying please don’t accept them.

Just then, the blue haired swordsman Abel, leader of the A rank party the “Comet Chasers” came by.

The sharp-sighted Abel took a peek at the written quests laid out in front of Kein.

“Oh, these are quests to take down Lord Class Monsters?!”

“Yeah, it looks like it.”

“I can’t wait to use some of my skills on quests like these! Of course, you’re going to take these quests on too, right? Since I am now Kein-san’s rival, why don’t we try to compete against each other, on a Lord class monster extermination quest!”

“Uh, rival?”

Without even being aware of it, Kein had become the A rank adventurer Abel’s rival.

When he looked over at Elena, she was shaking and had become teary eyed for some reason. Elena was trying her utmost hardest and was ready to burst. Kein interpreted this as her being deeply troubled by the Lord class monsters.

Kein thought about accepting the quests here. Abel’s party could defeat the powerful monsters that resided on Mount Kuko. If you thought about it like that, it didn’t seem that bad.

“So how about it, Kein-san. It sounds fun, don’t you think?”

“I get it. I’ll accept the challenge.”

A monster slaying competition between A rank adventurer Abel and D rank adventurer Kein!

The sword princess Anastrea had been watching while hidden in the shadows. Naturally, at such a wonderful chance to show off Kein’s true power, she started to dance wildly.

“Kein-san, umm……”

“It’s all right, Elena-san. Of course, I’ll take the herb hunting quest too. But while I’m doing that, if I can take them down, then I will. Even if I can’t, Abel-kun here probably can.”

“Um, but what Kein-san intends to do is…… Anyways, please be very careful when you head out.”

‘Don’t say stuff that’s not needed!’ thought the sword princess, as she sharply glared from the shadows.

Elena squeezed Kein’s hands, as if she was imploring him to be careful.

“Okay, I understand. I’ll only do things as I usually do. Meaning, I won’t overdo anything.”

Kein didn’t have even the slightest intention of going to the dangerous back roads of Mount Kuko in the first place. Given that their final destination was halfway up the mountain, Kein would just directly follow the safe path he was used to and familiar with, and give the dangerous craggy path to the “Comet Chasers” to follow.

With that decided, Kein went to the foot of Mount Kuko together with the A rank party.

If you’re heading into the mountain, you have to greet the god of the mountain.

“Wait a minute, please. I’m going to pay the god of the mountain a visit so…… huh?”

Kein was surprised to see that the usual small shabby shrine had changed into a proper shrine, made out of beautiful black rock pine lumber.

Kisara, a female thief from the Comet Chasers, followed after Kein with unsteady steps and asked him,

“Ohh, Kein-san. Your little shrine is in a place like this?”

“It was but, it wasn’t this beautiful before.”

Perhaps it was the people of Kuko Village who had rebuilt it as a sign of good faith.

Even though it wasn’t Kein who did it, the front of the shrine had been tidied up and wiped clean.

“I’m very grateful. Please, let everyone’s adventure end safely again today.”

Naturally, Kein prayed not only for himself, but for the A rank party’s safety too. Imitating Kein, Kisara also tried joining her hands together.

“Oi~ what are you guys doing over there? Our adventure isn’t going to wait for us you know!”

The proud and spirited “comet hero” Abel, excitedly urged Kein and Kisara to hurry up.

“See you when we meet halfway up the mountain as we planned, then.”

They were to rendezvous halfway up the mountain, where they would compete via the number of monsters they took down. Abel had said he wanted to reach the back roads on foot, and to even go to the summit. As you might expect Kein couldn’t go along with them that far.

“Everyone! All of us, as heroes, will boldly press forward and climb up this craggy mountain route!”

“I’m sorry. It’s quite tough going, so I’ll leave it to you guys.”

Abel, the A rank swordsman, called himself a hero, even though he was still young and his name wasn’t all that widely known yet.

Hearing ‘I’ll leave the craggy road to you’, the words struck him in the chest.

“Whaaat, we’re a party, and we might run into strong enemies if we take a craggy route that people don’t often use. Kein-san, if you reach the back regions on your own, don’t start racking up kills already!”

“No no, I wouldn’t do such a dangerous thing. You guys take care too.”

And just like that, the contest to take down the Lord class monsters had begun.

    1. It’s not NTR if they’re not in a relationship.
      Kein doesn’t seem to have those feelings either, so really it’s just a heart break.

  1. Sword Princess is a raving yandere.
    Able “Kein, don’t go climbing up the back cliffs & killing all the boss monsters before we can get there! ”
    Kein “i wouldn’t do something like that. I could throw my back out”
    Lol
    Thanks for the chapter
