or its location.”

Rancell cut off Emma’s pouring words.

“Emma, don’t panic and speak slowly.
What about the man?”

Emma took a deep breath and slowly opened her mouth.

“A guest came to the inn, and he looked like a mercenary with a bow on his back and a sword around his waist.
He said he was going to have a meal and get a room, but he suddenly came over and said he had heard a rumor.
He asked for the location of the monastery.
I thought I should ask the village chief, so I asked him to wait for a few minutes.”

As soon as the words were finished, Rancell jumped up from his seat.

“I’ll go and talk to him!”

***************

Seeing the village chief continuously sweeping his shiny forehead, Luon tilted his head.

“Is it necessary to meet the village chief to find out the location of the monastery?”

“It’s not like that.
I’m just here to find out what you’ve heard about it.”

“What, are the rumors wrong?” Luon replied.

“I heard that a devil appeared in the monastery of Tibella.”

“Hey, there was such a rumor going around?”

“The bards were talking about it like that? Am I mistaken?”

The village chief, whose complexion had become white, opened his mouth.

“It sounds like a big deal! I don’t know who spread it, but it has nothing to do with devils.”

“It means something is going on.”

When Luon hit the nail on the head, Rancell gasped and took a deep breath.
He nervously clenched his hands and said,

“It’s true that there’s no sign of activity in the monastery.
But a devil, I don’t want to imagine what the baron would do to us if this rumor entered his ear.”

“It’s not your fault that the demon appeared.
Why will the baron punish you?”

“He’s a small man.
And you keep saying devil, but it’s not like that.”

“Have you checked it yourself?”

“Well, that is

Rancell, who was stabbed once more, rubbed his face with his hands.

“Well, there are only farmers in this town.
There’s a hunter, but he’s not good enough for it.
Who has the courage to enter a spooky monastery in which all the monks had suddenly disappeared? I can ask the baron, but I don’t know what the madman is going to ask for in return… I have a headache and it’s killing me!”

Luon shrugged his shoulders.

“Why didn’t you try to get a mercenary?”

“The people in this village don’t have the guts to hire mercenaries…?”

Rancell, who was about to complain, looked at Luon with a stupid face.

His eyes were large, which was appropriate for the expression.
He had a thick forearm with clear muscles under his shoulder, which was engraved with a large and small scar across it.

Luon smiled softly at Rancell, who had lost his ear.

“I am confident that I will work as much as the payment I received.”

Rancell swallowed his saliva.

“Are you really going to enter the monastery? That’s….”

“There may be no devils.
But the rumors have already got wings, and they’ll soon enter the ears of the baron, who you fear.
Wouldn’t it be better to get things done quickly? It doesn’t seem to be of any use in insisting that it’s not the devil, even though you don’t have the courage to enter the monastery yourself to check it.”

Luon interrupted Rancell and replied.
He didn’t want to continue the conversation going in circles.

Rancell took a deep breath and sighed.
He looked ten years older.

“Alright… I was going to hire mercenaries anyway.
Instead, I’ll pay you after the job is done.
It might not be a big deal, and I can’t pay the advance in a hurry.”

It seemed that Rancell could not give up hope that nothing would happen to the end, but Luon didn’t care.

“Do as you please.”
