Temporary Branch Office
When I reached [Ordinary Cave], I saw the inn that was there and my mouth opened wide.
The heck is this?
It’s a much more properly built thing than I thought it’d be. Just how many months would this normally take? Rather, there’s been no reports about anything strange going on here so did this really just happen?
Eh well, it should be alright though. At any rate an A-Rank Adventurer-sama was involved with this, so it’s not strange.
Thinking about an A-Rank’s influence, it wouldn’t be off for them to have the skill to build an inn in a few days.
Well, let’s immediately go and hear the story from the inn’s Owner-san.
The one at the reception, Sorin… no, Ichika-san, guided me to the parlor and called for the owner.
After a while, a blonde-haired beautiful girl wearing a simple white dress turned up. Her white skin fit her blonde hair well. There’s another angel!
And a strange person at her side.
“This is the first time we’ve met, Owner-sama… Why is Kehma-sama here?”
“Well, I’m employed here. Please think of me as something similar to a secretary for now.”
Huh? Secretary? Then stay quiet, I am the guild’s branch head! The branch head! I’m the only one in the branch though!”
“I see… I’d like to talk with Owner-sama for a moment.”
“What now, Owner?”
Owner-chan nodded with a smile.
… Dangerous, I have a nosebleed.
For now, I’ll endure the nosebleed and tell the important matters. I told her that I’ll be making a branch office in front of the inn, renting a room, and that the guild would take responsibility to pay.
… Even though I was talking to Owner Rokuko-chan, that terrible hindrance obstructed every single time. Hmm.
Eh. Meals are divided according to ranks, and they cost extra? Moreover the most expensive one is one gold coin? Hahaha, the heck. Eh? Ah, that’s probably proper to entertain an A-Rank adventurer like Haku-sama.
For now I’ll get the E-Rank one. I’m anxious about the dessert, but that is the limit that I could use for meals. One silver per day in addition to inn fees is intense.
Ooh, I almost forgot.
Let’s tell them about Uzoh-san and Muzoh-san’s rescue commission.
“… I want to accept the commission, but that depends on the inn. What now, Owner?”
Rokuko nodded with a grin. Bufufo—… so cute.
It looks like the rescue commission was successfully accepted, her caliber is obviously different from that scrap there!
And so with the conversation complete, I decided to immediately go and set up the tent.
The temporary branch office tent was quickly completed. I was trained by Ojii-chan, so I have experience in it.
This is my castle~!
Haah… it’s empty. Ah, but maybe it’s alright to not wait on customers for a while… Oh, he’s going to immediately do the rescue? Fumu, well please do your best. Hope you don’t come back~
… So much free time.
Rather, there’s no one coming at all. The only one was that scrap. Aaah, I’m wasting away~
But what should I do? There’s no one coming to go into the dungeon, so what should I do with my free time… I’m too excellent to not have anything to do. As expected of me.
Come to think of it, they said that the inn has an onsen in it huh.
I wonder if Angel-chan and Rokuko-chan would get in with me?
Oh, right. I just built this today. The branch office will go into full operation after calling adventurers here, so due to that, today’s business is over! It’s a nice idea if I do say so myself.
Now then, hello onsen~
Onsens are the best~!
Somehow, Angel-chan was there! Angel-chan was!
Angel-chan herself decided to lecture me on how to use the onsen while getting in herself!
Aah, I couldn’t hear her since I was so focused on her glistening smooth and tanned skin, there’s no way I could right? Even though I didn’t hear was Angel-chan said, I properly memorized her voice!
… It’s fine to not bring bathing wear?
And now, just out of the bath, a magic tool called a [Massage Chair] was waiting for me.
… Put in a copper coin and it moves for five minutes. This is the first time I’ve seen a magic tool like this you know!?
Let’s use it at once.
I sat, and when I put in the copper coin… o-ooh oooh…. this vibration, vibration, aaaah, it feels sooo gooooood… ah, I wanna sleep, sleeeeeep! A-ah—, but there’s a fine for sleeping!? T-that’s so cruel… hyah… ah—! Close, I almost fell asleep.
The five minutes passed without me realizing it and the vibrations stopped.
… This is ridiculously amazing.
Fortunately, there aren’t any guests but me here, so I have a monopoly. A monopoly!
L-let’s try it a few more times… Fa-fuaaa—! Aaah…
Several days later, when I was being completely carefree in my room, Ichika-san turned up.
“Heya Silia-chan. Uzoh and Muzoh were rescued safely~”
… No way. Rather, they were still alive?
I decided to hear Uzoh-san and Muzoh-san’s story in the adventurer guild’s branch office (tent).
“Well, Kehma-san said, [Hey, eat. You’re probably hungry.] Then that girl handed us bread. Maaan, that bread was really tasy… right Uzoh?”
“It was like I saw an angel for the first time, Muzoh.”
“Really…? Ummm, what about the trap?”
“Ah, right. Kehma-san saw through it instantly, that we needed to put the magic sword back in the pedestal to open the door… Moreover, he helped us by using his own magic sword!”
“Well Uzoh, I think he already knew about that mechanism. Kehma-san’s probably already conquered this dungeon so nothing in it can surprise him.”
“I-is that so?”
Crap, somehow Uzoh-san and Muzoh-san have become firm believers in that scrap. Did he brainwash them somehow?
“Moreover, a cheap two gold coins for the rescue fee. We’ll send money back when we return to Sia, so please pass it to Kehma-san.”
“Ah, if you wish we can go through the procedures to send money to him.”
“Really!? Then please do!”
Two gold coins each? Yeah, that really is cheap for that, but it’s also not a small amount of money. Even three gold coins would be enough to live for a year.
But really, it’s a small amount to pay for your life. It could be called exceptionally fair.
“Right. The information about that magic sword trap, could you add it to Kehma-san’s reward? Are you good with that Uzoh?”
“I don’t care. You didn’t even need to ask, Muzoh.”
“I don’t particularly mind… but don’t you need money?”
“We were prepared for death. We were saved for two gold coins, wouldn’t you want to pay it back as soon as possible? Right Uzoh?”
“It’s thanks to Kehma-san that we can even talk like idiots like this right now after all!”
“Really now… Well, if so that’s alright.”
After that, I heard the story from that scrap, getting information about that trap’s mechanism and the dungeon’s ecosystem.
… There are nothing but goblins, clay golems, and stone golems in it. It really is a monotonous dungeon. Even beginners would be able to dive into it so long as they’re careful about the traps.
I don’t know how far in it goes, but right now I know that it would possibly be able to be used for new adventurer’s rank up examinations.
There’s even the possibility that it’ll produce magic swords in the future, too. Alright, there’s enough to write a report.
Let’s have the Uzoh Muzoh brothers deliver it. It’ll surely arrive quickly like that.
… [Ordinary Cave] doesn’t seem to match this dungeon.
What kind of name will it get?
Several days later, an unexpected situation occurred.
The A-Rank adventurer [White Goddess], ancestor of Raverio Empire, and the adventurer guild’s grand guild master, unmistakably a heavenly existence, Haku Raverio made an appearance at this remote dungeon.
… I started to sweat.
“U-umm, t-today is also an auspicious day…” 
“Your formal greeting is appreciated, though I would like to quickly turn in to rest at the inn. You said you were the only one here… This dungeon will be under continuous management of the adventurer guild. Its title is updated to [Cave of Desires]. The difficulty is D-Rank or above. Understood? Chloe, pass the documents.”
The black-dressed butler standing next to her, Chloe-sama, handed me the official papers from Haku Raverio-sama’s command… Although I said butler, she is a woman. Even I’m shocked at her beauty.
And then as soon as they finished handing over the documents, they quickly left… Aah, I was crazy tense there. My keigo is really not at the level to deal with her, really. 
If I had to liken it to something it’d be like confronting a dragon. I might have lost my life if I did a bad job. There was an order of knights that came to this dungeon for bandit subjugation, but there’s talk that they were executed after falling into Haku Raverio-sama’s disgrace and committing treason.
But even so, to come to an inn that could be called a cheap inn, wouldn’t the owner be committing lese-majeste against those two? 
… I’d be fine if Scrap Worm-san took the responsibility for it and got hanged, but please don’t implicated Angel-chan and them as well. Let’s pray that they can make it through this safely.
But well, in all probability, those two are the A-Rank adventurers that back the inn huh~. In that case there shouldn’t be any problems… probably!
… Well, for now how about I relax and get into the onsen?
