Day 253

Day 253

In the Labyrinth City Radha Lo Dara, Parabellum's secret branch store [Snake's Heart].

The building was once a renowned residence with a large amount of funds invested in its construction. Now its the location of large quantities of item drops.

Just a couple of days ago it was filled with illegal residents who were captured and killed, much to my pleasure.

It has once again become a really prosperous place after regaining its former glory.

Most of the merchandise stocked are first class products, but with fair prices, especially for such quality and such impeccable details. It provides customers with unusual products which they flocked to see, thus creating a lively atmosphere.

In addition, spending a certain amount of money earned customers a loyalty card which upon filling provided them with special benefits, such as having the masterfully skilled dwarves repairing your equipment for free.

Since the staff members were elves and demons who are pleasant to the eye, a large number of men, charmed by their looks, constantly crowded the shop. There were those that were obviously sexually enticed by the workers and looked at them lewdly, but they were still outnumbered by the veteran adventurers doing serious preliminary preparations.

Not even a month has passed since its opening, and even without huge advertisement, such a huge crowd gathered. Certainly the opening sale, the location and the novelty of the place were among the primary factors in attracting guests. But the leading cause was something else.

A few days ago, a group of variants came to Labyrinth City Radha Lo Dara, and gathered here. In other words, it was Minokichi's triumphant return.

It is currently known that races that [Rank-up] have been powerful and unmatched, the majority of these races ruled countries as rulers.

But regardless of what they became after the [Rank-up], because they still kept living without hesitation in the Labyrinth Branch Store [Snake's Heart] for the past few days, the people's curiosity was set ablaze.

In a Labyrinth City like this, where might makes right, the presence of such deviants (TN: strong beyond comparison) at the shop serves for nice publicity. Because one would expect superior creatures to deal with superior goods, one would be led to believe that this place deals with high-class items.

The truth is that such goods were being sold at the shop, their rarity attracting a variety of customers regardless of their level or strength.

I was worried about safeguarding Labyrinth Branch Store [Snake's Heart]'s original purpose, which is camouflage. Even though I thought this sudden influx of business was crazy at first, since it had already happened, I decided to just let it go.

Since I did not enter the store under my previous disguise, the manager of Labyrinth Branch Store [Snake's Heart] did not recognize me, but Minokichi and the others did at a glance.

There were a lot of rumors regarding our story and I often heard people gossip about it, but when they asked, we just answered that they were rumors. But when they think we are not saying the truth, I will just find another excuse for them.

Anyway, after the initial pleasure triggered by the unexpected activity boom, because of the customers, I had to use [Metamorphosis] and [Shape Shift] to disguise myself as the young businessman with blond hair and sincere blue eyes that has been recognized as the owner of [Snake's Heart] to continue the support with a soft smile. 

I probably should have done this for the other branches as well, since everyone prefers a gentle and sincere looking person rather than a man-eating demon.

But here in the Labyrinth City Radha Lo Dara, compared to other places, it seems to have the opposite effect.

Here it seems there is a tendency that a weak person will lick other people's shoes, and because it is the state displayed by my disguise, I began handling the customers with a meek tone.

Those who use intimidation to bring down the prices and those who want to take the merchandise without paying are mixed together.

Ok, this guy tried stealing, but he was caught immediately and taken into a dark room where we used all kinds of torture to play with him until he learned his lesson; it was hard work.

In the evening, we had a banquet for everyone with dragon meat being the main dish. Because Minokichi and Asue were outside of the city, we left some for them to eat tomorrow.

It is unfortunate, but it can't be helped.
