Episode 14: Sale

 

The Ludawan army is after Nanami…….It’s not safe for her to stay in Ludawan, so we’ve decided to leave the country……

“If we go to the commercial nation of Arpeca, the Ludawan army may not be able to touch us…….”

Farma suggested……

“Okay, let’s head there then.”

When I said that, Nanami pointed out softly.

“This one stands out, is that okay?”

“Well……normally, Magicrafts travel in Ride-carriers or something like that…….”

“Ride-carrier?”

“It’s a small land ship for transport…….”

“Well, there’s no such thing as that…..Let’s just walk away.”

However……the suburbs are fine, but the city is a quagmire……we moved as far as possible to avoid the human settlements.

“Farma……sorry……we made your father……”

I apologized for that in between walking around in my Magicraft……

“No…….It’s not Yuta or Nanami’s fault…….It’s Ludawan fault…….I……I’ll never forgive them……”

I felt her strong anger…..I also feel indebted to Mr. Belfast, and I liked that man……So I felt indignant that he was killed……It is the same with Nanami, who agrees with Farma’s words.

“Let’s avenge your dad’s death…….Let’s take down Ludawan!”

“Yeah……but we can’t do that right now…….We need to build up our strength…….”

“Let’s get a powerful Magicraft…….I think it’s wrong that Yuta’s Ludia value is 2…….The fact that he’s operating this Magicraft that even the Triple Highlander couldn’t start is proof of that. Maybe his value is greater than we think…..”

I don’t know about that, but I know from the battle at the compound that even I can fight.

“Nanami will fight too, if it’s to avenge my uncle, I’ll ride a Magicraft…..”

“Nanami……thank you……let’s get a Magicraft that is worthy of you, a triple Highlander, so we can defeat Ludawan……Thank you.”

We now have a goal of avenging Mr. Belfast’s death…….The first step is to get power, and the practical problem is to get money…….

“Farma, what was in that box?”

I remembered the box that Farma brought with her when we escaped from the mansion and asked her.

“I’ll open it up a bit.”

With that, she unlocked the box and opened it…….

“Dad……prepared something like this for me…….”

When I looked inside the box, I saw that it was packed with jewels…….I guess it was prepared for Farma so that she wouldn’t have to worry about money no matter what…….

Farma said she would not hesitate to sell the jewels that Mr. Belfast had prepared for her……And suggested that we should use the money to buy a Magicraft.

“Calm down for now, Farma……that’s the most important thing your father left you.”

“Yeah, it’s……but…….”

I knew how she was feeling……

We crossed the border from the suburbs and entered the commercial state of Arpeca……The commercial state of Arpeca is a country that revolves around economic activity, so it is easy to enter…….They only react to large military operations. And in the event that you’ve got a lot of money to spend, you’ll have many advantages here…….

“Well…..Farma……you’re not going to change your mind, are you……?”

“Yeah……Sell jewelry……”

“Okay……but why don’t you keep one as a memento of your father?”

“Don’t worry……dad’s inside me……”

It’s like she’s in my mind……I nodded, understanding the feeling…….

Okay, but how do we sell the jewelry……I don’t want to sell it poorly and get a cheap price…… I decided to take just one piece of jewelry, ask around for the price to sell it and find a merchant I could trust…….

“Ho-ho……nice jewelry, I’ll pay 2 million for that.”

“I’ll buy it for a million……it looks good, but it’s a bit old.”

“That’s a cheap fake. Well, it looks nice, so I’ll buy it for 10,000.”

I asked 10 merchants and they all gave me different prices……I’m glad I checked……So I tried to ask the merchant who gave me the highest price to buy all my gems……

“Hey, are you trying to sell jewelry to that merchant……?”

A pointy-headed man with red hair……who looked suspicious approached me……

“Huh……yeah?”

“Huh, I thought you might be since you were going around asking about the price of a single gem, but……don’t, not to that merchant.”

“But he offered the highest price…….”

“That’s because he figured out that you still have a lot of jewelry…….He’s going to take it all and buy it off you at a low price.”

“No way…….How could you possibly know that?”

“Huh……you’re really sweet……that’s because I’m one of those evil merchants.”

“I call myself vicious…….”

“That’s more believable. No evil merchant would call himself evil.”

“Sure……”

“Hahaha, it’s really simple…….Well, okay, how about you hire me?”

“What do you mean……?”

“I’ll negotiate the sale of the jewels for you……and in return I’ll get 10% of the sale.”

“I don’t trust you and I don’t want to……work with you.”

“You don’t trust me……Then how about this, if I don’t sell the jewels to that merchant for a bigger price than what he offers I won’t get paid.”

I see……That way we don’t lose anything…….I’m not good at negotiating…….I’ll just ask……

“If you sell them for more than 20% than the price he offered, I’ll give you 10% of the reward, is that okay?”

“OK, that’s good enough for me, I’ll take care of it, I’m Jean, nice to meet you.”

He said with a big smile on his face.
