Level 1 Guy: Chapter 143 – Light and Darkness・Carrots and Wheats
Morning, after raising my Intelligence from B to A at Nihonium Dungeon 6th floor, I went to Teruru at noon to get some vegetables.
Going through the usual routine for the day, I went back to the mansion when evening arrived.
When I came back, following my daily routine, I went to the sub-branch of the shop <Swallow’s Repayment> which is located at one of the rooms of the mansion to update my passbook.
[Welcome home Ryouta-san.] (Elza)
At the end of the room came Elza standing up and lightly running towards me to greet me.
[I’m back, please calculate for today as well.] (Ryouta)
[Yes, I’ll have your passbook please. Oh, that reminds me, the purchase of carrots prices have increased.] (Elza)
[The purchase price of carrots? Why?] (Ryouta)
[As Ryouta-san’s drop quality and reputations are good, recently the prices for it has increased, but people still wanted Ryouta-san’s carrots so the orders have increased. And one of them, Eve-san——Killing Rabbit self-acclaimed that your carrots are the best, hence why the prices and demands have increased.] (Elza)
I nodded in acknowledgement.
The higher the ranking in drops, the more it influenced the quantity and quality.
And, me having S Drop in all of the category would produce the highest quality and quantity there was in this world.
Among them, it was interesting that Eve alone could push the sales of the carrots.
[Well, you know how Eve is, Rank S when it comes to loving carrots.] (Ryouta)
[That might be the case——Okay, I’ve recorded today’s income. Today’s earning is 1543298 Piro.] (Elza)
1.5 Million huh.
Today’s amount was good too.
[Elza, do you have anything else to do after this?] (Ryouta)
[Nothing, as far as I remember, do you need something?] (Elza)
[I wanna celebrate for the demand going up, do you wanna come?] (Ryouta)
I only briefly asked, but Elza agreed strongly.
A bar, Villa De Edge.
We arrived at the familiar bar where their beer changes daily.
Recently, I have been gaining in popularity, thus the shop owner would guide me to a quiet seat in the back.
The usual bar, and the usual seats.
Elza and I held our beers high as we cheered and drank our beers.
The beer that I ordered was called Coffee Beer.
It came from the lowest floor of a certain dungeon drop, so it wasn’t a regular beer that you can find.
You can taste the nice and bitterness of the coffee and the common hops, so it was one of my favourite beers to drink.
[Cheers for your good work Ryouta-san, thank you so much for your what you’ve done so far.] (Elza)
[Hm? Why the sudden thank you?] (Ryouta)
[It seems that my performance have improved considerably over the past few weeks thanks to Ryouta-san.] (Elza)
[Is that the case? Well but it isn’t just me that increased the overall income, right?] (Ryouta)
[Well, Ryouta-san’s drops are amazing in quality and it’s stable too. People who can produce stable quality and quantity are very much appreciated. I asked Master a long time ago, when I was independent, we would bet how many A Drop people can we pull in.] (Elza)
[I see.] (Ryouta)
How many A Drop regulars can be secured that can provide both stable quality and quantity.
The amount was strictly dependent on the person’s personality too. Naturally, if the person has a habit of skipping the days of going into the dungeon or if their sick all the time, then the number of times in the dungeon = Drops decreasing.
Nevertheless, A Drop people would be handy as they can deliver high quality drops as long as they defeat the monsters.
[Because of your contributions, I have received a ton of bonuses. Twice or thrice the amount I’d gotten previously.] (Elza)
[Oooh, that’s really great for you.] (Ryouta)
As I said so, we knocked our cups again.
On my previous world, I wouldn’t say I earned a lot on my previous company, and I was yearning for a bonus.
[Congratulations to you Elza.] (Ryouta)
[Thank you so much, Ryouta-san.] (Elza)
After hearing pleasant compliments, the beer tasted much more delicious.
Drinking the beer, eating some snacks, and chatting with Elza.
It was a good way to end the day off.
[Fuu, what a bummer.]
While we were drinking, two men went over to the seats next to us.
They both wore adventurer-like uniforms, and they looked like they have just finished their jobs.
[It’s really is a bummer, that the prices of wheat has decreased.]
Hearing the word [wheat], Elza realized something.
I placed my index finger on my mouth to gesture her to stay silent, and paid attention to their conversation.
[My income has been cut off by 10%. Seriously this Clifford, doing some unnecessary things.]
[What, can you tell me the reason? Don’t try to cheat me.]
[Aah. so, those Ryouta Family was told by Clint to help resolve the situation. As it was, the wheat coming from Clifford Family was obviously worse than the Ryouta Family. No wait, I wonder if theirs were really good.]
[……What you’re saying is, after good quality wheat was produced, the previous producers demand went down?]
[Yeap, that’s right.]
The man drank the entire beer in one go, and Don! Slammed the glass onto the table.
[It was the same back then, when something happens those Ryouta Family, no Ryouta・Satou would appear. That bugger would always appear.]
[Seriously doing unnecessary stuff, this Clifford. If something like that didn’t happen, the prices wouldn’t have fallen.]
[Seriously man. That bastard Clifford.]
[Doing extra work for us.]
[Seems like they have spread the news quickly. Then doing extra things and let the Ryouta Family appear.]
The man flaunt his beer while complaining.
I see…..so something like this happened.
The carrot went up, whereas the price of wheat fell.
Two of the items that I was involved in turned out to contrast with each other.
[As expected.] Elza who was listening to the story said.
