“Yeah. Say hello to Red Ogre for me!”
I said goodbye and parted with the adventurers.
With this, my errand is complete.
A few days after completing Riezel’s request, I didn’t feel motivated and didn’t go to the dungeon.
I wasn’t just lazy.
In the worst case, one mistake would result in death, so I was waiting for me to be in perfect condition.
Well, that’s the excuse I made to myself and was lazing around, but Alex asked me to run an errand.
He is doing well in creating connections with influential adventurers in the royal capital, and his dungeon exploration is going well as well.
However, his original role was that of Seliana’s bodyguard.
He has a distribution of rewards for exploration scheduled for today, but he was suddenly needed as a bodyguard, so I went to receive the reward instead.
By the way, Red Ogre is Alex’s epithet.
The club and shield left by the Majin.
The shield was presented to the royal family, and the club became the property of House Müller, partly because Ruban and the others declined.
I don’t remember it very well, but I seem to have defeated it, but I can’t use such a big and heavy thing, so I refused, and Alex used it.
It’s Red Ogre because he wields [Red Shield] and a club like an ogre.
He doesn’t change his expression much and doesn’t speak much, but I know that he’s actually happy about that.
Thinking about teasing Alex next time, when I was floating back to the mansion with my [Floating Orb], I felt a gaze in front of the aristocratic district.
It didn’t feel uncomfortable, but… I wondered if I’d finally become able to sense someone’s presence.
I can ignore it, but… I’m curious, so I’ll try to find out a little.
After gaining altitude and heading in the direction that somehow caught my attention, I arrived at a large building at the edge of the commercial district.
It is circled by a high fence, and there are guards on the front and back, although they don’t seem to be very motivated.
When I peeked from the top of the fence, I found several horse-drawn carriages.
Is it a warehouse or something?
I can’t just go into it arbitrarily, but…
I was curious, so I was wondering what to do, but I saw something like a black rope hanging from the rain gutter.
…it’s probably, that.
Looking around, the adjacent building has no windows on the wall side.
This warehouse-like building is also on the side of the wall, and was in the blind spot of the security guards in front of the gate.
There are also no passers-by.
I went over the fence at once, floated close to the wall, and rose the roof.
I approached my target in a low position so that I could not be seen from the outside.
A black rope hanging down a rain gutter.
It’s about 1 meter long, but what is it?
It somehow feels weird…
I managed to swallow my voice.
When I reached out to pick it up so I could take a closer look, it suddenly moved and slipped into my shadow.
It’s not like it’s blown by the wind, it clearly has a will.
It might be a living creature, so something like this might be a monster, but I don’t feel bad about it at all.
For real, what’s going on?
I peer into the shadow that spreads under my body, but I can’t see it.
I don’t know why, but I know it’s there.
I tried slapping at it, but there was no particular change.
I didn’t feel anything, but a black shadow crawled on my hand that touched the roof.
Noticing that, I couldn’t help but raise a voice this time.
Although I wasn’t found, I couldn’t just stick to the roof like that, so I hesitated whether to go to the guild, but returned to the mansion instead.
I don’t know if it’s dangerous, so I didn’t go inside and floated down to the backyard and roll up the sleeves of my jacket to expose my skin.
“It’s a snake, right…?”
A snake-like figure is wrapped tightly around my arm, but I feel no pain.
I tried touching it, but I felt my own skin.
But I can also feel my arm being touched.
I wonder if the snake also feels that it was being touched, it’s moving.
…I don’t hate snakes, but I don’t like them either, but I don’t feel bad about this.
Elena called out from behind.
How did she know where I was? I was on the edge of the backyard.
“Ojou-sama is calling you. Come.”
Uhh… now that I think about it, she had a radar-like skill.
I guess this snake was also exposed…
