Takami no Kago Episode 5
After our night together, the next day we first went to an equipment shop to buy aria’s equipment.
“Anyway, what collar would you like?”
Several collars are lined up in front of me.
“Uh, I don’t know, so why don’t you choose one master.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes, because I want to wear the collar master chooses.”
She’s such a good girl. For now I’ll choose a collar with good defensive abilities for Aria to wear.
“Is this one alright?”
“Yes, Thank you.”
“Then here put it on me.”
After receiving confirmation from Aria, I went behind her to put the collar (necklace) on her. Holding it firmly in my hands I place it around Aria’s neck. I then secured the red leather collar around her neck. It then magically configure itself to fit Aria’s neck perfectly, without a doubt this is an accessory. When I checked the status of the collar, I saw that it changed to [Aria’s Collar].
“With this, I’m now master’s slave entirely.”
I could help but be happy for Aria who said that so cheerfully, probably because she had no one to relate to, with the exception of her dead parents. And to be completely honest, I’m glad she feels relaxed around me. Even if I am the only person in this world, I can’t help but feel at peace with her as my companion.
For my personal equipment I have similar l『Leather armor』『Leather shoes』『Leather gauntlet』,『Iron Sword』, 『Wooden Shield』.
I bought the whole set for 5 big silver coins. Aria’s looked worried seeing this.
“Um master, will I be safe entering the guild?”
She seemed to be nervously thinking about it. They’ll probably still be worried about her [Curse]
“Its okay. We’ll just go to the guild next.”
And so we left the equipment shop.
“Now that I think about it, have you fought any monster Aria?”
I listened waiting for her response.
“Ah yes, because monsters often came to our village, when they left the forest.”
I wonder if your level rises when you fight.
“Is it alright if I wear my equipment.”
Whatever, it will probably be alright.
Even if I look at their stats, they seem strong enough to me.
“Ah, this is a pain wearing this even if its necessary.”
While I was thinking out-loud, we arrived at the Adventurer’s Guild.
“Welcome. Is that you Jinno. Who’s the girl with you?”
The person that called out to me was a beautiful women behind the counter. Her name is Lily, she’s the one who helped me get registered her at first, and I’m greatly indebted to her.
“Hello Lily. This is Aria. She going to become a member of my party. Aria, meet Lilly. She works in this guild, so it’s best not to offend her, alright.”
I introduced both of them as we approached Lilly’s reception desk.
“Ah, um. Please take care of me.”
Once again Aria did a polite bow after saying that.
“Okay will do.”
Lily answered while waving her hand. After that she briefly glared at me. Did I do something to offend her, I’m scared.
“For now, I would like to get Aria registered.”
I asked Lily while giving her a 1 large copper coin registration fee.
“Hai,Hai. Is Aria you slave since she’s wearing a collar. If that’s the case, then Aria write your name here, and Jinno put your name in the column for master.”
That’s what Lily said after glancing at Aria’s collar for a moment.
I don’t know what to say, since it’s quite common for adventurers to have slave in their parties. They usually have to carry extra luggage, disarm dangerous dungeon traps, and be used as a meat shield while their master runs away.
“Here you go. This is your Guild registration card.”
“Oh, thank you very much.”
Aria grabbed the guild card with her hand. She looks over her guild card timidly. The guild card uses magic, but is made out of some weird metal. It display her personal identification, monster subjugation history, as well as various other things. And on the card is doesn’t say [Curse] anywhere on it. Aria looks at me once she understood what that meant. I gave her a nod to show my own confirmation.
“Well, Aria for our first mission, is there anything you want to do?”
Although I wanted to start out with a small monster subjugation request first, but if Aria is afraid, I’ll have to take things slow with her. Even though Aria shows me a face full of determination, I know she’s still very nervous mentally.
“I would like to receive the Sharp Wolf subjugation request.”
I heard her say Sharp Wolf, as I look at Aria with astonishment she’s grinning from ear to ear. Everyone looks at us. Aria who noticed everyone staring at us, looks at me with her head to one side puzzled.
“As expected of a member of Jinno’s party.”
“Ah, I don’t know about this Aria.”
“Ara, is that a no?”
Lily who saw Aria’s puzzled face, began to speak.
“His first mission was also a subjugation of Sharp Wolves.”
“Is that so?”
For an Adventurer Sharp Wolves are a gateway for inexperienced. But why is Lily smirking.
“ I was so surprised when he came back that evening with the material from 50 sharp wolf bodies.”
T/N: [basically proof as to show you killed them]
“That’s just because I accidentally found a pack of them.”
I quickly tried to make an excuse.
“Even if someone found a pack of 50 Sharp Wolves, not even a mid-tier(class) adventure would fight with them.”
Aria also noded in agreement. Which side are you on, mine or hers.
“It just kinda happened by chance.”
It was thanks to my [Divine Protection], I was able to strengthen my stats and sword, which helped me kill 50 Sharp Wolves. Even though I finished hunting the 50 Sharp Wolves in an hour while running around, still even with an [Ability] it would be abnormal for an adventurer’s first time.
“ I knew it, master sure is amazing.”
Aria’s eyes are brimming with respect.
“Yeah, if you go with him a Sharp Wolf would be nothing in comparison. Gambatte.”
T/N: Every now and again ill leave the romanji Japanese word in because that English counterpart feels like it takes away the meaning. Anyways if you have ever watched Anime you would know these words by now.
“Yes, I’ll do my best.”
Thus, we left to begin my first mission with Aria.
