Chapter 24 – Putting Down the Goblin King!

Kein, who knew Mount Kuko like the back of his hand, went toward the Goblin’s Lair in almost a straight line.

“I thought it was here but what the heck was that explosion earlier?”

Maybe there was a mage among the goblins?

He had heard that, in extremely rare cases there were goblins who could use magic, called Goblin Magicians. Even if one of them showed up though, there’s no way they would be able to use such a powerful spell.

Kein timidly entered what used to be the den. Even though my role was just to scout, I need to see this through properly, thought Kein.

No matter where he looked, there was only the charred remains of the goblins.

“Did they attack each other by mistake?”

No, it couldn’t have been. Just then, he heard a clunking sound and something collapsed beside him.

“Uwah!”

Kein raised his mithril sword by reflex, and with a piercing noise, the Goblin King’s head had been skewered.

Because the Goblin King had suffered from extreme pain and was already close to dead, it might have been a suicide.

The main force of the goblin extermination group had seen the large pillar of fire from afar, then panicked and rushed toward it. They had finally arrived at the lair just then.

“Hey, isn’t that a Goblin King?”

“Kein-san beat him?!”

The adventurers in the goblin extermination group were shocked. In particular, one of the members of the A rank party, the “Comet Chasers”, was the first to arrive and actually witnessed Kein stabbing the Goblin King.

“My my, what will you do now, Abel? Isn’t that The Goblin Lord you had fussed so much over before?” The female thief Kisara teased Abel.

Abel, who had fallen silent, went up to Kein, who was still in shock from stabbing the Goblin king. He bowed down quite low to Kein.

“Uncle, no, Kein-san, what I did was inexcusable. You’re a D rank so I looked down on you before, but I want to apologize for that.”

“Uh, well, it’s okay, really….”

The blue haired swordsman Abel was unexpectedly honest. Even though he was young, he had heroically risen all the way up to A rank. He was so young that he wasn’t even 20 yet, and had been uncooperative toward Kein. But, he was the type that believed if you can manage to show your true strength to them, they should recognize your ability as a warrior.

“So, you forgive me then? Then starting now, Kein-san is my rival!”

The very moment he acknowledged his true strength, Abel also saw Kein as his rival. Although it was nice he was so resolute, Abel really was a troublesome person.

“No, I really didn’t do anything though.”

“I witnessed Kein defeating the Goblin King myself. I don’t even know if I could defeat that kind of monster myself. Being overly honest can be a bad thing, you know.”

“Nono, take a closer look. All of the goblins look like they were burned by magic. But, I’m not a mage so I can’t use anything like a Fireball spell.”

Hearing his answer, Kurtz, a mage with black hair, examined the goblins who had practically turned into charcoal.

He was a plain looking guy, with a small frame and coke bottle glasses, and was always lugging around a lot of magic tomes. Despite his looks, he was a member of the “Comet Chasers” party, the strongest A rank party in Erun city. He graduated second best in class at the Kingdom’s School of Magic, an excellent A rank mage.

“This isn’t from a Fireball spell, it wouldn’t have had a powerful enough flame. Damage to this extent would likely have been caused by the legendary, huge area of effect magic, Flare Destroyer.”

“Even though Kurtz studies so much, he really is dumb, huh? Kein-san already explained it, so that’s the end of it right?” said Randal.

“Nooo, there’s no way this was beginner magic.” Replied Kurtz.

“Kein-san said it was a fireball, so it had to be one!” Kisara said it as if it was plainly obvious, causing Kurtz to be taken aback.

“Come to think of it, I read something like this once. Give me a second. Ah, here it is!”

Kurtz, with his thick glasses, grabbed one of the many tomes he lugged around, flipped though the pages, then read aloud.

“Austria Kingdom’s Biographies of Heroes, page 238, the chapter on 『The Legendary Sage Dana Lean』! The royal capital had been invaded by 300 monsters, spearheaded by an Ogre Lord. The great sage Dana burnt them all to the ground in just a split second. A nearby magician asked, ‘Why didn’t Dana recite the chant for Flare Destroyer?’ According to the master himself, he explained ‘It was a Fireball’….”

Everyone around became quiet. Nobody said it, but they were all thinking the same thing. Could Kein have as much magic power as the legendary sage Dana Lean?! It couldn’t be.

Kein just stared into space with a vacant expression, unaware of what everyone was saying.

When Kein finally came back to his senses, everyone was explaining what had happened.

“So that’s why by the time I got there, all of them were finished.”

“Yeah, yeah that’s right…… Kein-san didn’t do it. That’s how it happened, everyone understands now, riiight?”

The giant Randal slapped Kein on the back as he spoke.

As if it was a big secret, everyone exchanged glances and quietly nodded.

“No, I’m telling you I really didn’t do it!”

“Now now, Kein-san. Everything’s all worked out in the end, so it’s fine.”

It really wasn’t all worked out, but I had no choice but to accept it anyways.

The monetary reward for taking out the Goblin’s lair practically all went to Kein but, since he didn’t defeat any of the monsters there’s no way he could let himself accept the reward. So the majority of the bounty this time went to helping the financial struggles of Kuko village.

In order to replenish Kuko village’s stores of food and daily necessities, Kein ‘anonymously’ donated relief supplies to ‘a damaged village’.

  1. Donations like that are why the saintess wants his body. Though I doubt she’d know what to do with it if she got it.
    😜
    Thanks for the chapter

  2. Thank you for the chapter. Yeah, it’s funny that no one believes kein again Can we just take a moment to talk about the goblin king? What happened to him was pure torture. He was burnt, had his arms cut off, and then felt excruciating pain from healing. He probably did commit suicide. That got dark for a minute back there.
