Bear-san Looks For A Place For Dismantling

When we arrived at the guild entrance, Fina said she’d wait outside, so I went in by myself.
Well, certainly, it wouldn’t feel pleasant to walk into the midst of a group of sordid men.
There were also a lot of idiots who would come over and get involved when a child entered the guild.

「I’ll be back soon, so wait for me.」

After I entered the guild, I headed towards Helen, who was at the reception desk.
There was nobody in line, so I went straight to her.

「Are you reporting about your request, Yuna-san?」

「Un, because it’s finished.」

「Then please let me see your guild card.」

I handed over my guild card.
Helen confirmed the request that was registered on the guild card.

「Yuna-san, you received the request for the Tiger Wolf subjugation?!」

「That’s right.」

「Moreover, you just received it today, yet you’ve already completed it?!」

When Helen shouted, the adventurers in the room started a commotion.

「Yo, Helen said it was a Tiger Wolf.」

「She defeated a D rank monster by herself?!」

「But the Tiger Wolves’ habitat is far away from here. Can you really come back in a day?」

「What, you don’t know?」

「Know what?」

「It’s the bear.」

「Bear? You mean that girl’s outfit?」

「That’s not it. She called out a bear as a summoned beast, got on it, and left.」

「A summoned beast? A bear?」

「I saw it! There were even two of them, a black one and a white one.」

Another adventurer intruded into their conversation.

「Two of them!」

「Moreover, those bears were fast!」

The story had started in the back, but it soon spread over here.

「So then, Yuna-san, may I have the magic stone as the proof of subjugation?」

I took out two magic stones from the Bear Box.

「Two stones?」

「There were two of them.」

It became even noisier behind me because of my remark, but I ignored it.
Helen received the magic stones and placed them on the crystal plate.

「Yes, without a doubt, both of them were defeated today. Although the request only asked for one, I can increase your reward, would that be acceptable?」

「Un, it’s fine. What happens if I decline?」

「You will only receive the request reward for one Tiger Wolf, and only one subjugation will be registered in your guild card. One magic stone will be returned to you as well.」

「Un, I don’t need a magic stone right now, so please register both wolves.」

「I understand. Two Tiger Wolf subjugations have been registered. Then, excuse me but, did you bring the Tiger Wolves’ raw materials with you?」

Helen’s line of sight moved towards the bear box.

「I have them, but I’m not selling them.」

「Is that so. It would be helpful if you sell them to the guild, though.」

「No way, I want the fur.」

Yes, I was thinking of having Fina strip off the Tiger Wolves’ furs so I could decorate the dreary Bear House with them.
They would look good regardless of whether I decorated the walls or covered the floors with them.

「I see, it’s a shame about the fur, but what are you going to do with the fangs, the claws, and the meat?」

「I don’t need those, so I’ll bring them after the Tiger Wolves are dismantled.」

「Thank you very much. Here is your reward. I am also returning your guild card.」

The extremely heavy bag of money and the guild card were put away into the bear box.
I left Helen and met up with Fina, who had been waiting outside.

「Sorry to have kept you waiting. Then, shall we head back?」

「You’re not going to sell the wolves and the horned rabbits?」

「It’s troublesome, so I’ll sell them next time. I was properly paid, so you don’t have to worry.」

It was because I had forgotten to put the dismantled materials into the Bear Box before I had put away the Bear House.

However, I couldn’t afford to not pay Fina, who had worked hard dismantling today.

「Big sis Yuna.」

Fina was surprised to see the silver coin I handed to her.

「It’s fine, just take it.」

I asked Gentz-san, who was buying raw monster materials, about the monsters’ market price.
I handed over just a little bit more than that.

「I may not be here forever, so save up your money.」

「Thank you, Big sis Yuna.」

Since Fina’s smiling widely, I’ll pat her head.

The next day, Fina came to the inn early in the morning.
I’d like to tell her that it’s fine to rest today, since we worked hard yesterday.
Although I also thought about resting today, it was my fault for not telling her yesterday.
It’s also bothersome to head out every single time I need to do dismantling.
Is there a warehouse I can borrow somewhere?
Even if there was, it would cost money.
It would be good if I could borrow the warehouse at the guild. For now, let’s head to the guild and take a look.

Fina came along with me to the guild.
It was later than the usual departure time, so there were only a few adventurers in the guild.
I headed towards Helen’s reception desk, since she seemed like she had plenty of spare time.

「Good morning.」

「Are you looking for requests today as well?」

「No, I have something I’d like to ask.」

「What is it?」

「Is there someplace I can borrow in order to dismantle monsters?」

「For the Tiger Wolves?」

「There’s that as well, but it’s because I have all sorts of monsters that also need to be dismantled. It would be nice if I could borrow the guild’s warehouse.」

「That’s kind of impossible.」

「As I expected.」

「Also, you don’t mean short-term, but long-term, right?」

「Un, about that, I wouldn’t know.」

「In that case, I can introduce you to other kinds of places instead.」

「…That’s right. Is there an empty plot of land?」

「Land, huh?」

「Right, an empty, wide open space.」

「I think there is, but the Adventurer’s Guild has no jurisdiction over land, so it may be better for you to consult with the Commerce Guild.」

「The Commerce Guild?」

「Yes, the guild that handles the transaction of goods. Of course, they also handle land transactions, so I’m thinking of sending you to them.」

「I understand, I’ll go take a look.」

When I asked Fina if she knew where the Commerce Guild was located, she said she did,
so let’s go take a look right away.
