Episode 20 06. I became Banco’s assistant #3(2)
Captain Carl, who had been fighting with Rockefeller for a while, reluctantly decided to accept Rockefeller’s offer.
I don’t know much about the store owner, so I was concerned that if I missed this opportunity, the storage fee would be higher than the one I was just offered.
“good night. I don’t really like it, but let’s do it. Wouldn’t that be a lie instead?”
“It’s a lie. How could I lie about someone as tough as you?”
With a poopy expression on his face, Carl recalled his subordinates whom he would meet later.
‘I came here with so much agitation, but if I told you that I paid 6% for the storage fee for gold coins, it would be a joke.’
“Instead, there is one condition.”
Rockefeller tilted his head at that.
“Conditions? What is it?”
“Let’s make this deal something only us know. So, I will give you 6% of the storage fee as you said, so if someone comes and asks about the work, they say it was a 3% deal. Because I have my face.”
“Instead, you shouldn’t go anywhere and talk here.”
“Don’t worry about that. This story will take me to my grave. Instead, when bad-looking guys like me come and ask for confirmation, just tell them you traded at 3%. That’s it.”
At that, Rockefeller asked a question.
“But where are you from? Perhaps… … Are you from the Hound mercenaries?”
“You know it well.”
“Oh, you were there too. Yesterday, people like you came to visit. I came here to exchange talents, but… … Do you know anyone?”
“They are my subordinates.”
“The men? So you’re saying you’re going to be a captain there?”
“Yeah, I’m the boss there. I guess you didn’t see it that way.”
“yes… … It’s a bit surprising. I didn’t know that the captain would come in person.”
“It’s nothing else, and I leave the money I received in advance with Banco, so of course I have to move on my own, right? That’s the money issue. no one to trust That’s why I came.”
When Carl introduced me, Carter, who was overhearing their conversation inside the store, gave a startled expression on his face.
‘Are you a mercenary commander? Then the famous hound, Karl, isn’t it?’
Speaking of hounds, Carl was a very famous and strong person to represent the Hound mercenaries.
Carter paused what he was doing for a moment and glanced into the store to look at the Hound mercenary commander.
As rumored, he was a very large man who could even make a fist fight with a small orc, and he looked more ferocious and ferocious than the men who had come to visit him yesterday.
‘To see a man called a human ogre. Are you lucky?’
However, the rumored mercenary commander could not overcome one of Banco’s young assistants and was ripped off.
‘It’s really amazing. The world’s hunting dog, Carl, is also being ripped off. Looking at it like this, it seems that I really left one of my assistants out of control.’
Returning to his place, Carter once again admired Rockefeller’s guts.
Because having the guts to overcharge the hound mercenary commander of the world was a talent that no one really had.
‘I’ve been watching him for a few days, but he’s going to be great no matter what he does. The bowl itself is different from a timid guy like me.’
Captain Carl glanced at him and reminded him of the shopkeeper he had just gone to.
‘Damn it. It seems to be a laughing stock here and there.’
Karl, who became uncomfortable in his seat, wanted to leave the gold coins as soon as possible.
Just as he was about to rush his mind, he suddenly wondered about the name of the boy who ripped him off.
“But what’s your name?”
“What is my name? I’m Rockefeller Ross Medici. Please feel free to call me Rockefeller.”
When Karl heard his name, it was not difficult for him to know that he was a commoner.
Because I’ve never heard the name Los Medici in my whole life.
“You are a common man. Seriously, you can’t use a non-common person for work here. Please write the receipt or sooner rather than later. You are busy.”
With him wanting to leave the store as soon as possible, Rockefeller began to slowly bring up the stories he had heard from the lord.
“It’s a receipt, I’ll write it right away. But are things going well here? I heard that you came here for orc subjugation.”
Rockefeller, who took the bag of gold coins from Carl, began to write the receipt, and Carl responded.
“Don’t worry. ‘Cause things are going well Subjugating orcs in this frontier is nothing compared to the reputation we’ve built so far.”
Carl raised the corners of his lips slightly, revealing his confidence.
“I don’t know what people here think. At least we think of it as a pastime to take a break. What kind of orc is that?”
Rockefeller, who was rolling a pen while writing a gold coin receipt, suddenly asked about something.
“From the point of view of the hound mercenaries, it seems that orcs are really nothing?”
“It’s not an army of orcs, and killing a few orcs is not a job.”
“Then there is no problem with tribal units?”
“I would rather have a tribal unit. Then it will be less boring than I thought.”
Rockefeller whispered ready words to him, who was still relaxed.
“Then I’m glad. You’re saying that there’s nothing wrong with monster weapons or shamans being dragged by orcs, right? hey, that’s good I was very worried about the sudden appearance of orcs, but I think it would be no problem if you were confident.”
In the meantime, Rockefeller, who wrote down the gold coin storage certificate, stamped the store’s seal and handed it over to Carl.
“It’s a gold coin storage certificate. In any case, you will need this receipt to go to our store or to Banco belonging to the Lyon Guild to retrieve the gold coins you have deposited. Of course, you know that there is a fee if you go to a store other than us, right? Here you go. Take it.”
Rockefeller’s words seemed to make Karl think more.
‘A monster weapon or an orc shaman?’
Carl decided that it probably wouldn’t happen.
This was the edge of the empire that was quite quiet.
Occasionally orcs did appear, but the monster weapons and shamans Rockefeller mentioned were rare, rarely seen except for the wars the orcs caused.
‘Even if it’s a monster weapon, the orcs aren’t going to start a war, so you won’t even see a shaman.’
I bet it wasn’t Karl, and I tried to shake off the unpleasant thoughts that suddenly came to me.
Then Rockefeller, who had caught his bad look like a ghost, asked the reason.
“Why all of a sudden?”
“What do you mean?”
“I think your complexion is not getting better. Would it be a problem if what I was worried about became a reality?”
“what. It is simply to subdue orcs. But the things you said are things that the orcs can only see when they start a war or a war. It’s rarely seen in normal times.”
Rockefeller then looked startled by the false performance.
“War? So, if the monster weapon or shaman I mentioned appears, does that mean there will be a war here?”
“That’s not it. It’s just that the orcs in this area have to start a war in order for the things you’ve said to appear. Even if it’s a monster weapon, orc shamans aren’t really to be found anywhere. Orc shamans are very special even within the orcs.”
“Then what if, without war, you join a group that an orc shaman subjugates?”
“That’s it… … .”
Rockefeller asked again, looking at him, who was fading.
“Is that a problem? Yes?”
Karl couldn’t deny it.
because it was true
“If you are an orc shaman… … In terms of human beings, he’s become a wizard. So of course there will be a problem. We are mercenaries who use swords, but how can we catch a wizard without any preparation? Target assassination is not possible like Ismail, who is reputed to be a famous assassin.”
“Then what will happen?”
“Is that not possible? Orc shamans are so special that they are not easily seen. So no worries.”
“Is there only one?”
Rockefeller’s relentless offensive made Carter, who was working inside the store, a little nervous.
‘What is he trying to say? You’re supposed to keep it a secret that there is an orc shaman?’
Carter, who noticed the lord, was worried about this and that.
The mercenary commander, Carl, felt annoyed when he faced Rockefeller.
He thought of him as a troublesome boy persistently asking questions.
“What is the big deal? It just bothers me a lot more than I thought.”
“Are you bothered? how?”
“You have a lot of questions. Keep asking if it’s useless. All you have to do is bring a wizard or a witch who can oppose the shaman and go on subjugation. It’s a shaman’s magic, because a wizard or a witch will take care of it anyway.”
“Then do the Hound mercenaries also have wizards?”
“Do you know how common wizards are? We have to find it separately.”
“Are you not going to give up?”
If you met a hidden ambush called Orc Shaman, there was a very high probability that the general mercenaries would give up on their mission in consideration of the dangers of their work.
It’s impossible in the first place, so why did you take charge of it?
However, there were several reasons why the Hound mercenaries could not give up their jobs easily.
“Actually, I won’t give up easily even because of the penalty.”
There was also the problem of a penalty that had to be paid under the contract if they immediately gave up the mission, but the biggest reason they could not give up the mission was another.
‘What is giving up? It’s just more cumbersome and annoying than I thought.’
“We never gave up on our mission. I don’t know if it’s absurd at all, but if it’s possible to some extent, I tend to end up doing it anyway, even if it’s a loss. After all, that’s what remains for us. The price will go up.”
Karl said this.
“You don’t know why the hound I’m leading has so much fame?”
“Are you going to solve everything?”
“right. If anyone entrusts us with work, we can solve anything. Just with the means.”
“Money is the problem.”
Carl narrowed his eyes gently.
The opponent was a boy who was not yet over twenty, but he never felt that he was too young.
“Anyway, I will not give up on my mission easily under any circumstances. That is the reputation and pride of the Hound that we have built up so hard.”
“Then, if there is an orc shaman as I worry about it, would you like to call in a wizard and finish it?”
Carl was silent, but his eyes were telling everything.
“The conversation has become unnecessarily long. Don’t come back later to get the money you left.”
Rockefeller smiled softly as Karl left after saying those words.
‘The wizard will absolutely need it, and then either that person or the lord here will need money in some way. Because the money given to the wizard is unconditionally paid in advance.’
And they won’t stamp the money they don’t have in the air.
Of course, there was a way to write a separate letter of loan to the lord or mercenary commander, but in that way, the wizard could not be summoned.
Because the wizard preferred cash to the IOU.
‘I’m talking about borrowing money here.’
