Level 1 Guy: Chapter 157 – A stalking Aristocrat
[No no wait, I don’t know even know where to begin.]
Clint who was called all of a sudden furrowed his eyebrows, showing his wrinkles, and bitterly laughed.
Beside him was Cell silently praising Emily.
[Excuse me, but where did this tea leaf come from? It’s deliciousness would enter my top 3 most favourite tea of all time.] (Cell)
[The tea is bought at a tea store desu. It’s just ordinary tea nanodesu.] (Emily)
[My word! To produce such taste…..Mumumu, as expected of a friend of Satou-sama huh.] (Cell)
Being satisfied by Emily’s tea, Cell praised her yet again.
Putting that aside for now, I turned to face Clint.
[Do you know of Stem-sama?] (Clint)
[Then how about this?] (Clint)
Clint took out a piece of paper from his pocket.
The currency of this world, Piro. It was the largest value, 10k Piro, that he took out.
[Isn’t it just money, what’s so special about it?] (Ryouta)
[No, it really is just an ordinary 10k Piro. But it’s Stem-sama’s parents house that produces this.] (Clint)
For a moment, I did not know what to say so I let out a stupified voice.
Everything in this world is dropped by monsters. Knowing that money was also a dungeon drop, I was only half surprised.
But this time, I was even more surprised.
…..I was surprised because I sort of understood what Clint was trying to say.
[Producing that….You mean the money?] (Ryouta)
[That’s right. It’s Stem-sama’s family that governs the dungeon that drops such bills.] (Clint)
[Isn’t he just Okubo Nagayasu.] (Ryouta) (TLN: A samurai bureaucrat that was in charge of silver mines during the Edo period.)
It was not a fuss about oil money, but actual money.
It that story were to be true, this man’s parents’ house is at a ridiculous world, far for us to grasp.
[That’s right.] (Clint)
As if knowing what I was thinking through my expression, Clint answered with a bitter smile.
[Thus, I cannot refuse to give up my seat when the order was from the higher ups.] (Clint)
[Well, that’s obvious…..] (Ryouta)
While we were busy discussing seriously, Cell and Emily were excitedly discussing a different story.
Cell took out a doll one by one from his bosom.
It was a hand-held sized dolls.
He placed it on the table and showed it to Emily.
[This is Satou-sama battling barehanded, and this is Satou-sama when he’s sniping, and this is Satou-sama when he’s seriously fighting the Dungeon Master.] (Cell)
[Amazing desu, it looks exactly the same nanodesu!] (Emily)
[Why and when did you even make such things!] (Ryouta)
I greatly retorted.
All the hand-held sized dolls were all me.
More accurately, it was like those figurine that you could see at an Akiba shop, but the figure was surprising high quality, so high quality to the point that if I were to become small using magic, it would look almost the same.
[Why that is of course I respect Satou-sama. This is when Satou-sama is in Selen, and this is when Satou-sama is in Aurum. Oh and this is when Satou-sama lent his power to Lady Margaret—–] (Cell)
[Aren’t you just a stalker!!] (Ryouta)
My voice came running out from the back, all the way out.
Even though the close quarter combat and sniping figures were fine, but up to the point where there were particular situations of me doing something, that just crosses the line.
[Wait a minute, I am not a stalker. I’m merely impressed with Satou-sama’s pure and honest actions.] (Cell)
I saw Cell’s eyes. All stalkers says that.
[It’s true…..All of these, are when Satou-sama helped people who are in need.] (Cell)
Seeing Cell talking in a serious manner, I was suddenly remember a line which says [If there’s someone in trouble, then there’s someone with the power to help.].
[Let’s put it this way, these are just to shape the appearance of what Satou-sama did at that time.] (Cell)
[…..I, I see.] (Ryouta)
I guess so.
Even though it’s barely crossing over the lines, but I guess it maybe so.
[When you mention about Yoda-san helping others, do you have one with Cerberus-chan too desu?] (Emily)
[Without a doubt, I certainly have—–Ah.] (Cell)
While he was trying to take out a new figurine, a bean like item dropped to the ground.
It wasn’t a figure, but a jewel.
[It’s the Tears of Slime nanodesu.] (Emily)
Emily immediately knew what it was at a glance, even I too.
It was a request that we got during the harvest festival, so I still remembered it.
[Th, this is different.] (Cell)
Cell hurriedly picked it up and hid it into his bosom.
[Don’t tell me that’s—–] (Ryouta)
[No it’s not, it’s not like I asked them to switched out during the harvest festival when Satou-sama gave it to them.] (Cell)
[You freaking stalker!!] (Ryouta)
There’s no doubt, this is a genuine stalker.
100%, no room for doubt.
The stalker Cell was revealed in the salon which was surrounded by a strange air.
After awhile, Cell coughed to clear his throat, and acted as if nothing ever happened.
[I’ll be staying in this city for awhile. I might ask Satou-sama for assistance as the Chief of the Dungeon Association, so I’m counting on you.] (Cell)
[A, aah.] (Ryouta)
[As a way of thanking you so not just this mansion, but the 3 other properties that Satou-sama rents, I’ve bought them all and shall give—–] (Cell)
[Please stop.] (Ryouta)
I stopped Cell’s words mid sentence.
[Mu? What do you mean by, please stop?] (Cell)
[There’s no reason to get such deal by you.] (Ryouta)
[No, this is.] (Cell)
[I’m not troubled by it.] (Ryouta)
I told Cell off with a simple and short sentence while staring at him.
Of course if you do something, you’ll be rewarded, or if you’re in trouble and you need help.
If it’s neither of those, then there’s no reason to be rewarded.
Taking back Cell’s words, he had a bitter face.
[Yes, it’s as Satou-sama puts it.] (Cell)
[I’m sorry.] (Ryouta)
[But I’m in quite the predicament. Since I’ve recently came to this city, I want to have some connection with Satou-sama, even if it were a little.] (Cell)
I’m troubled by his words though in various ways.
[Oh right! Would you like me to deliver Satou-sama’s drops everyday?] (Cell)
[Umu. My sister who came together with me is a gourmet. Though it’s slightly unbalanced…..But she should be satisfied with Satou-sama’s drops. I’ll even pay twice the market price, so let me do it everyday!] (Cell)
I thought for a moment while putting my hands on my chin.
[If you put it that way…..I got it.] (Ryouta)
Cell was delighted to have his proposal accepted.
[He really does resemble Cerberus nanodesu.] (Emily)
Emily murmured to herself, the troubled me also agreed.
Though he’s a stalker, but it gave me a complicated feeling.
Cell and Clint who left Ryouta’s residence, sat inside the Stem family’s chariot.
Clint was sitting opposite of Cell while bitterly smiling.
[I can’t believe he refused the proposal for the mansion.] (Clint)
[Hence why he deserves respect. Satou-sama isSatou-sama.] (Cell)
Clint was secretly amazed.
The guy named Cell in front of me, the man holding the source of money in this world seemed to respect Ryouta so seriously.
Even though he left disappointed….but after leaving the mansion, this man completely surprised him.
Though, Clint thought it was fine.
The eyes of pure admiration within Cell convinced him.
Thanks to Ryouta, during an emergency, Shikuro would have a great person behind it to rely on.
Clint was convinced.
