[Yoda-san, there’s a guest outside nanodesu.] (Emily)
At night, whilst resting at the saloon, Emily called me.
[A guest? This late at night?] (Ryouta)
[It’s someone new, what should we do desu?] (Emily)
[For now, I’ll meet that person.] (Ryouta)
[Got it desu, I’ll bring them over here desu.] (Emily)
Emily then hurriedly went back out.
I wonder who that person is.
[Ryouta, let’s go to the pub~]
While waiting for Emily, this time it was Aurum who called for me.
She has her partner, the Mini Sage Mike, being hugged by her.
[A pub?] (Ryouta)
[Yep! I want to go to a place full of people talking about variety of stories~] (Aurum)
[I see, if that’s the case, you can do whatever you like.] (Ryouta)
[Yeap! That’s why, let’s go. Hey, I’ll pay~] (Aurum)
After she said that, she held her hands up, and there appeared gold ingots.
A pyramid of gold ingots with a market price of 4 Million Piros were there.
She is the dungeon of gold.
[No no no no that’s too much. We don’t need that much for a pub.] (Ryouta)
[That’s the case, let’s pay for everyone else! It’s gonna be interesting!] (Aurum)
[You’re really excited huh.] (Ryouta)
[Yeap! So, let’s go!] (Aurum)
[I would go but—–] (Ryouta)
[Yoda-san, sorry for the wait nanodesu.] (Emily)
Emily came to the saloon with the guest.
It was a man in his fifties who looked a little tired, which looked like an owner of a depopulated shop in a street.
[—–But a guest is coming.] (Ryouta)
[I see….. That’s sad.] (Aurum)
Aurum then erase the gold ingots on her hand.
I’m glad that she listened to me, but I felt sad looking at her.
[I’ll promise you that we’ll go tomorrow.] (Ryouta)
[At the same time we can bring others over. And if we’re going to eat, we can all eat together as well.] (Ryouta)
[—–Aaaah! Thank you Ryouta! !] (Aurum)
Aurum hugged me, and gave me a kiss on the cheek.
Then she lifted Mike up again and skipped away the saloon.
[….. Ehem.] I coughed and met the visitor.
[Sorry for showing you such a weird thing. I’m Satou Ryouta.] (Ryouta)
Since it’s my first time meeting him, I spoke in an honorific way.
I guess my salaryman days hasn’t left me yet.
[My name is Dale. Uhm….. Excuse me for coming here today, but wasn’t that….. Aurum-sama just now?] (Dale)
[That’s right?] (Ryouta)
I nodded, and Dale’s eyes changed colour.
[So there really is a spirit living here. And it’s a powerful spirit that could erase gold.] (Dale)
[Ah, yeah.] (Ryouta)
The tension soared too much, and I was feeling a bit of it as well.
After a brief introduction, Emily left the saloon to make a cup of tea for the guest. Then, I sat facing Dale.
[So…. Is there anything you need from me?] (Ryouta)
[I am the chairman of the Dungeon Association of Tetramin.] (Dale)
Tetramine, a poison like name.
[I would like to say it straight! Could you move your base to Tetramine?] (Dale)
[Huh? Base as in…. You want me to move?] (Ryouta)
After thinking for awhile, I answered and Dale nodded.
[Yes! I’ll prepare a house for Ryouta-sama there, with well-trained maid and shops that are close to it. Of course, all of your friends can come too—-Plus.] (Dale)
Is there anything other than a house with maids.
[The dungeons that Tetramine has, a dungeon called Plumbum. Of course we will issue licenses for all floors for you.] (Dale)
[Plumbum….. Oh lead.] (Ryouta)
[No it’s just me. Hmm…..] (Ryouta)
Something sounds strange.
Suddenly coming here to my place, and preparing a mansion for me.
I just have this feeling that there’s something.
[…. I can’t answer this immediately, so would you let me think for a few days?] (Ryouta)
[Thank you so much! By all means consider this positively!] (Dale)
Dale then stood up.
I do not know his intention, but it’s been told to me in a desperate manner.
[Ahaha, he’s after the tax.]
As promised last night, I brought Aurum to the bar, Villa De Edge, and Neptune was there who had a drink with us as well.
After the sake was brought out and rank, Neptune answered with joy.
[You should know your influence a little more. How many people are there in your family now?] (Neptune)
[Me, Emily, Alice, Celeste, Alice, and Mike. Aah, I don’t know if Margaret of the Cliff Family would want to join as well?] (Ryouta)
[Aside from the latter half, there are 6 of you, and the taxes?] (Neptune)
[I mean how much do you pay your taxes per year.] (Neptune)
[Tax….. I wonder.] (Ryouta)
I don’t mind.
Cause it’s hard to grasp the taxes of adventurers in this world.
Everytime I trade something, I had to pay some.
[Around 1 Billion.]
Next to our table, Eve who was tipsy with beer and carrots joined in the conversation.
[The low level family has about 1 billion taxes.] (Eve)
[That much!] (Ryouta)
[Even though you’re a low level, you have large taxpayers.] (Eve)
[That’s that. So if they invite your family, tax is basically transported to their city. And because Tetramine has been depopulated recently, they need more money.] (Neptune)
[Now I get it.] (Ryouta)
I feel like having solved all mysteries.
DIdn’t know it was like that.
[By the way, it’s going to be a big deal if your family moves. There would be fights between cities—- no more like a war.] (Neptune)
[Are you just exaggerating…. Or maybe it isn’t?] (Ryouta)
A billion piros is a lot.
So the first impression I had on Dale was really right.
From his point of view, a billion is seriously a life or death situation for him.
[Tetramine and Purumbum. What is the cause of the depopulation though…..?] (Ryouta)
It means that people are less interested in going to the dungeon.
[…. What is it?] (Ryouta)
[Seems like you have your bad habit showing.] (Neptune)
[My bad habit?] (Ryouta)
[Aah, do you need a prophet? Though you’re not moving, but you’re gonna leave for Tetramine tomorrow. Is that right?] (Neptune)
I laughed, he’s right.
That’s my intention.
A depopulated city, and there’s a new dungeon.
Since I was asked for help, let’s see if I could manage it.

Me, Emily, Alice, Celeste, Alice, and Mike
There’s 2 Alice, 1 should be Eve
Only noticed that cause Eve actually appeared the next sentence
iamviruz · 4th August 2019 at 4:16 AM
Or maybe elza the shopkeeper?

How about Aurum who actually invited them for drinking

Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
Eve is the one in charge of the money?!

Money = carrots. Bunny has to know how many carrots she has left after taxes.

Emily (Secret ruler of the Ryouta Family) and Elza (live in agent handling the Ryouta Family account) are the ones most likely to be handling finances
