Night in the veranda room.
Thanks to the power of Vanadium, the full moon and wind chimes make for a perfect evening drinking location, and I find myself alone with Ena, face to face.
She looked at me, not with her usual aloof expression, but with a very serious look in her eyes and said.
“It’s a deficit.” (Ena)
The reality confronted me by Ena.
Even though we knew it was coming, it’s still pretty damning when you say it clearly like this.
“I’m not sure what to make of it, but I’m sure it’s worth it. The balance is still there, but it is red anyway.”
“You don’t even need to calculate it. ……”
I’m not sure what to make of that.
“No matter how you calculate it, no, I don’t need to calculate it, Ryouta’s balance is in the red. There’s still some balance left, but it’s in the red anyway.” (Ena)
“It’s more difficult to make a list of the things Ryouta-san is carrying on his back right now. All of them are things that cost a lot of money.” (Ena)
“The foremost of which is the rent on this Vanadium dungeon.” (Ena)
“Yeah, I know.” (Ryouta)
That’s true, for better or worse.
I paid 1.5 billion a year to rent out Vanadium dungeon, to keep it away from other people.
Even though I’ve been able to make a lot of money, spending 1.5 billion a year is not a small price to pay.
“I think we should all share it—–” (Ena)
“No, you can’t.” (Ryouta)
I said firmly.
“I understand what you’re saying, but as Ena said, it’s absolutely not the way to go.”
She looked at me like, “How can you be so sure?”
“Yes, absolutely. Vanadium trusts ‘me’.” (Ryouta)
I looked around the room to make sure there was no one else in the room, then lowered my voice and said.
“Dependent, I guess you could say. It makes sense that I’m paying for everything.” (Ryouta)
“But ……” (Ena)
“Vanadium doesn’t talk, but that’s why she’s so sensitive and perceptive. It’s definitely not good to know that it’s not just me that’s paying for this money, it’s everyone else.” (Ryouta)
“…… Okay, I won’t say that again then. Sigh, seriously…….” (Ena)
Ena said, and smiled helplessly.
I guess that means she’s convinced for now.
“I mean, it’s about money. What about getting the gold out of Aurum? I’m sure she’d be happy to give it to you.” (Ena)
“No, not that either.” (Ryouta)
“Why not?” (Ena)
“Now, in order to make it possible for Aurum to see outside, the dungeon is at nine to five.” (Ryouta)
“Yes, for about two years now? You’ve been doing that, haven’t you?” (Ena)
“And the only reason I’ve been able to do it without complaint is because there’s been no gold redemption from me. I used to get it in the beginning, but recently I’ve had to stop dropping extra gold in the drops.” (Ryouta)
“Why is that?” (Ena)
“I’m sure Ena would know, but it’s almost like it’s public knowledge what the big adventurers sold.” (Ryouta)
It’s similar to the long list of names that used to exist in the original world.
The money movements of the top tier adventurers, and the breakdown of the drops involved, are transparent —– or worse, revealed —– to a tremendous degree.
“If I’m getting a lot of gold from Aurum, it could mean I’m keeping her to myself for the money. It would interfere with my current 9 to 5.” (Ryouta)
“You mean it’s hopeless.” (Ena)
“Yes. It’s also the reason why I’m making Teruru my main money. If Teruru joins me here in the future, I’ll have to make a separate main hunting ground.” (Ryouta)
But for some reason, her bitter smile looked more and more happy.
“Well, earn your money, then. Because the income and expenditure is red-hot.” (Ena)
“Yes, that’s the best thing. It’s the end of the month and there’s no time before the next payment or debit. I’ll have to work overtime, even if it’s just temporarily.” (Ryouta)
“You’ll have to leave that to us.” (Ena)
“Leave it to us?” (Ryouta)
What do you mean? I look at Ena.
“We’ll pay you in advance. You have to deliver this much in a month. I’ll pay you the amount in advance.” (Ena)
Ena held out a piece of paper, as if she had prepared it.
On the paper was a list of goods to be dropped at Teruru, my main battlefield.
All of them were in tons —- no, ten tons, a hundred tons.
This is the amount of money you can earn by staying in the dungeon for 30 days.
“That’s enough for about a month.” (Ryouta)
“Yes, it is. If it’s Ryouta-san’s credit, you can pay in advance for this number of quotas. This is a legitimate business transaction —– a transaction that benefits both parties, since the ‘money tree’ can be purchased on a stable basis.” (Ena)
“I see. Thanks, I’ll take your word for it.” (Ryouta)
“So we are equal …… now.” (Ena)
Ena smiled again, a wry smile that seemed to indicate she was pleased.
“Well, I’ll pay you 100 million piro in advance on your account tomorrow.” (Ena)
“Thank you.” (Ryouta)
“Keep up the good work.” (Ena)
With that, Ena gave me a wink and walked out of the veranda room.
I’m so lucky to have my friends. ……
I’ve got to work properly so that those friends don’t worry about me.
