Testing the Pendant one more time, I defeated some flaming footsoldiers.
It then dropped both the beer and edamame.
Now, I unequipped it, and defeated a different soldier, and it dropped beer.
[What’s the matter-ssu?] (Tail)
[Hey, do you have a bottle with you?] (Ryouta)
[You mean this-ssu?] (Tail)
Tail took out a beer bottle.
[Yeah, can you hand me all that you have?] (Ryouta)
Tail straightened up his body, and handed me three in total.
I took them, then went around to find the next monster while obviously equipping the pendant.
After defeating one, the edamame dropped on the floor, and the beer was sucked into the bottle.
Then, defeating another one, it was sucked into the bottle.
Then after the third time, I unequipped the pendant, and the bottle that was sucking up the beer shattered.
I knew it.
When I equipped the pendant, I thought that the amount may be lesser because of the edamame, and that’s exactly it.
When I wear the pendant, the amount would fit in the bottle, when unequipped, it’s large enough to shatter.
After that, I asked Tail to procure more bottles, and the quantity does change with and without the pendant.
I can finally produce some vintage wine with this pendant.
Because I was testing the effects of the pendant, it took some time, and so I hurriedly went to the Flint’s dungeon association building with the help of Tail.
After arriving there, I was lead to the chairman’s office by one of the people working there, and opening the door—
[Ugh.] It smelt so strong of alcohol that I instinctively made a disgusted voice.
Wondering if the guy was used to it, the person who brought me here went inside the room without any hesitation.
[Chairman, Ryouta Satou has come to see you.]
[Come on in.]
I could hear a child’s voice asking us to enter, and when I followed that voice, it was indeed the voice of a little girl.
It was a childish face, and underdeveloped limbs, and her hair was tied into two knots which has the same length as her height.
No matter how I see it, it’s a girl of the age of a single digit.
[I was waiting for you.]
After that girl said that, she opened another bottle and sniff it.
After sniffing it, she told the guy who was guiding me.
[It’s very light, around 1% of a B Rank.]
[Yes, that is correct.]
[This beer was mixed with some tomato juice, discard these at once.]
[I shall punish the person who gave this.]
Then, she opened the bottles one after another, sniff it and gave her instructions on whether it’s light or strong.
After that, the guy left, leaving me, Tail and the girl.
We then sat at the sofa and waited.
The seat felt a bit warmer after the kid sat there for awhile.
[Nice to meet you nano, my name is Mao・Mii, the chairman of Flint Dungeon’s association nano.] (Mao)
[My name’s Satou Ryouta….., nice to meet you.] (Ryouta)
I wondered for a moment how I should speak to her.
She looked so young, but is the chairman of a dungeon association.
Because of that, I thought whether I should use honorifics.
[You don’t have to do it,Mao is as young as she looks, so you can talk like how you used to.] (Mao) (Looks like we have some loli shit right here)
Almost at the same time she said that, the door opened and another staff member was holding glasses on a tray.
He placed the high foot glass in front of us, with red liquid inside, indicating that it’s a red wine.
[If you’re as young as you look, then please don’t drink—] (Ryouta)
[Puha~. It’s alright, this is just juice.] (Mao)
[Ooh, this grape juice is indeed delicious-ssu.] Tail said as he put it in his mouth.
Wait, grape juice?
[This is confusing….] (Ryouta)
[Or do you prefer barley tea?] (Mao)
[No, I mean I like barley tea, but that isn’t…..] (Ryouta)
That’s not the issue….
I thought I would have some problematic and unfriendly development with the chairman, but that isn’t the case.
[What is that, that you’re doing just now?] (Ryouta)
[Just now?] (Mao)
[Yeah, you were sniffing on all of those beers.] (Ryouta)
[That is Mao’s job. Mao would do some quality control for the alcohol produced in Flint.] (Mao)
[Quality control?] (Ryouta)
[There are variation in the quality of the dropped alcohol depending on the adventurers.] (Mao)
[Well….That is true.] (Ryouta)
It’s not just alcohols, but all the productions in this world.
The quality changes greatly depending on the adventurer’s drop rate.
[Flint has some mixture of very good and very bad alcohols mixed around.] (Mao)
[Wait, are you the person who manages the ranking of the dropped alcohols?] (Ryouta)
[That is correct. And that is the job of the chairman to control the quality of the alcohols.] (Mao)
[I see….wait, and you just smell it?] (Ryouta)
[Because Mao is a child, so no alcohol for Mao.] (Mao)
[No wait a minute.] (Ryouta)
Again, that’s not the problem….but then
[Then how do I do it?] Mao said as she tilted her adorable head.
I know that children shouldn’t drink alcohol, but just knowing whether the drink is good based on the smell, that is something amazing.
For Mao who doesn’t know that, it just surprises me even more.
Even though she’s a child, but she’s a chairman, wonderful.
[By the way, Mao sniffed a very good beer just now.] (Mao)
[Eh? Oh, you mean this?] (Ryouta)
I took the bottle out that I tested at Lanthanum.
After placing it on the table, Mao stared at it.
[What’s the matter….ehh?] (Ryouta)
Mao took the bottle, silently opened the lid and sniffed it.
Ignoring my surprise, she opened all the bottles I brought and sniffed it.
[Are these mixed?] (Mao)
[Huh? No, there’s no such thing.] (Ryouta)
[It has been sealed-ssu.] (Tail)
Tail said from the side.
Yes, it was sealed. I wouldn’t know that term before coming here, but now I understand.
A device is attached at the tip of the bottle, so that people can see whether the bottle has been opened already.
For quality control, it is possible to know which alcohol has been mixed and how many times it was opened.
But the beer that I brought was unopened….
[This is weird.] (Mao)
[What does that mean?] (Ryouta)
[All these beers have the same smell.] (Mao)
[….Maybe…this is a Max A Rank?] (Mao)
Words that I don’t understand comes out one after another.
[There will be minor differences even with the same Drop Status.] (Mao)
[Aah….that’s right.] (Ryouta)
Even though I’m not talking about the Drop Status, but the seeds at Nihonium that I’m using to boost my status is the same.
From that relationship, it can be seen that even with A or F Rank, we can see the detailed numerical values.
Maybe it’s the same concept with the Drop Status.
[Yours is….] (Mao)
Mao looked at the letters <Rank A> drawn on the bottle.
[Mao thinks it’s a Max A Rank. And all of it is the same.] (Mao)
[So it’s at the highest possible rank.] (Ryouta)
[Since you’re the person that Eric Oji-chan asked, so you are indeed an incredible person nano.] (Mao)
Mao looked at me with eyes close to admiration.
An innocent looking eyes staring at me, and that pure eyes are truly amazing.
She was kinda off though.
Because she’s half right, and half wrong.
It’s max, she’s right about that, but I’m not A Rank, but Max S.
[This is incredible!] (Mao)
Thank you so much to all my patron supporters who have been helping me since the beginning, and to those who are helping me right now as well.
