“It will be hard for you from now on.” James said and smiled.
After my conversation with James, I headed to the Guild.
I plan to meet with Asuna and Jodi-san today before taking on a job.
By the way, from when I was talking to James up to now, I kept the Radon Junior that I summoned with me.
Truthfully, I’m supposed to summon it again if ever we needed it for the job but if I think about it, it’s better to just leave it like this because the activation time is too long.
I can just leave it flying around when I don’t need it and by doing that, I can practice magic while moving.
Also, it is currently the strongest summon I have.
While thinking about various things, I have arrived at my destination.
I opened the guild door…
Asuna and Jodi-san were inside.
“You two, where are you going-“
“Well then everyone, I will make sure to deliver it.”
Asuna took my hand and dragged me out when I was just about to go in.
Jodi-san stopped for a moment and then she bowed her head slightly to some hunters who followed them out.
The plan is to meet inside the guild building but they suddenly dragged me out from there.
“What happened so suddenly? And who are those people?”
“Those people said that they want to join the party after hearing that you were the one who subjugated the Evil Dragon.”
Asuna released my hand and while we were walking, she peeked at the back.
It seems that there were still people who don’t give up and still follows us even after they were stopped by Jodi-san.
We tried to shake them off.
Only after she peeked to make sure that it’s safe did she released my hand.
“Fuu… it should be safe here.”
“Fufu! Liam-kun is really popular.”
“Okay, this is a list for you.”
Asuna handed me a small folded paper which I took and opened.
Written on it were people’s names and their specialized fighting styles.
“The list of those people earlier.”
“They are very pushy so anything we said didn’t have any effect. That’s why we escaped. But… this kind of thing…
it should be decided by you.”
“The master of this party is Liam-kun, after all.”
“I see… thank you very much, you two…”
“Well then, first, let’s do our job.”
“Yeah, let’s put some spirit into it.”
It seems they have regained their spirit.
I checked the memo…
There were more or less 20 hunters on the list and all of them wants to party with me.
To be this popular… it’s my first time since birth.
We separated after taking down a number of dangerous beasts on the highway.
Then I went back to the mansion before taking a look at the list again.
Request to join the party…
I was looking at their short profile when…
“Ah! Welcome home, young master.”
As soon as I arrived at the entrance hall, a maid greeted me.
“What happened? You look rushed.”
“The deliveries for young master came flooding in.”
“Please take a look.”
The maid urged me to follow her and we went inside a room.
At the center of the room that looks like a salon, there’s a long table with some things piled up on top.
“The Master told us to gather them here for the meantime.”
“Father did? That’s fine and all but, what’s this?”
“It’s matchmaking applications.”
That really surprised me.
I went closer to the long table. And from the stack of files, I picked up one and opened it.
The first page is the profile of the [House] and after that comes the girl’s profile.
The one I opened belongs to a duke house with the name Sanchez, and the girl is the second daughter, named Aina.
I opened another. This is also a duke house and this time, the third daughter, Erika.
I opened more and looked at them briefly. Most of them are from a duke or marquis house.
“What is this…”
“It seems I’m a bit late.”
Before I know it, Bruno’s behind me already.
Somehow, even though he should be in another noble house now, he’s here.
“Do you need something, brother?”
“It’s an errand.”
On his hand is the same file as the others.
He casually sat on the sofa and ordered the maid to bring him a drink.
The maid quickly went out of the room.
I opened the file from Bruno.
This was also from a duke house.
“It’s an order from the house which my house is under. And since I’m your brother, I was told to give it to you and say nice things for them.”
“You, what did you do?”
My heart thumped a lot faster.
“Emm, I.only subjugated the Evil dragon, I believe…”
“No, that’s not it…”
“The house who ordered me to do this didn’t tell me any details.”
“They didn’t tell me any detail but it’s clear that their intention is to get close to you. Moreover…”
Bruno opened the other file I just opened earlier.
“From the looks of it, it’s only from those who hold higher status. Every one of them is also a capable house.
They must have noticed something that’s why it’s piling up. It’s the only conclusion I have.”
….I remembered James’ words.
“Her giving you that many gold coins on a whim will only attract the attention of others.”
“More than that, her highness chose to do it herself rather than returning to the royal capital. For those who know how nobles works, it will only draw suspicion.”
And just like Bruno had said, this means that the talented and capable nobles had already noticed.
“Hm? Oi, you dropped something.”
Something fell beside my feet.
It’s the party applicant memo.
These people don’t know anything. They only want to be close to me because I subjugated the Evil Dragon.
The nobles also don’t know anything concrete. They’re just guessing from Princess Scarlet’s acts and tried to get closer to me.
Those who know the truth and those who do not, have come gathering around me.
Attempting to join my party, or becoming my wife.
It’s my first time since birth that I was this popular.
