Episode 57 Paying with Her Body
In the living room of the ride carrier, one depressed woman, Elysia’s senior rider, who was badly injured by Nanami, was in trouble because of Jean’s unreasonable debt. In addition, her account has been frozen due to the death of the owner, and it seems that she is penniless and cannot even return to her country…….
“What are you going to do, sister? You have to pay what you owe.”
Jean told her with a businessman’s face.
“I know, I’ll pay you properly, but……I can’t pay you right now because I don’t have any money, how about if you drive me to Elysia, I’ll pay you 1.5 million plus.”
“No, no, no, no, we’re going south now, the other way.”
“So how do I get to……?”
“Well, if you don’t have the money, maybe you can pay with your body.”
“What……are you doing? You……can’t be that obscene to me……”
I thought that was a terrible idea, so I complained to Jean.
“Jean, that’s a bit harsh, you should think of a different solution.”
“What’s wrong with you guys?……I’m asking her to work and pay us back.”
“Oh, what’s that supposed to mean?”
“You want me to work……help you with your mercenary work?”
“That’s right, you can’t do anything but ride magicrafts.”
She didn’t argue with him, as he seemed to have a point.
“Okay, I’ll take you up on that offer.”
“Okay, here’s the deal: 10,000 gold a day, plus food, room, and board. I’ll prepare a magicraft for you, and you can use the amount minus the rental cost to repay the debt, and when the debt is gone, the contract is over.”
“Isn’t……10,000 gold a day cheap?”
“Hey, don’t you know the daily wage of a commoner? Even a very well paid, high Ludia value person can earn a thousand gold in a day.”
“I certainly don’t know the salaries of the common people, but……”
“By the way, how much did you get from Elysia?”
“I get three million gold a month as a base salary, and then bonuses for wars and other practical work.”
“100,000 a day, that’s amazing, but this is not Elysia, and if you think about your position, you will understand that the conditions I mentioned are not bad.”
Jean’s powerful words seemed to convince her, and she accepted the terms. However, Jean’s trap was also laid in this proposal……
“The most she can pay back in one day is practically 500 gold!”
Jean tells me this just as she is returning to her room.
“Yes, the magicrafts for the Double Highlanders are expensive, so even if we buy and sell them when we no longer use them, we should get 9,000 gold for a day’s rental, plus 500 gold for food and room, so 9,500 gold.”
“Wow……500 gold a day to pay back 1.5 million, that’s……”
“It’ll take 3,000 days.”
“No, I think that’s a bit excessive……”
“You idiot! She’s a double Highlander! You can’t get that kind of talent very often! Let’s have her work for the Iron Knights for a long time.”
That’s true, but I don’t think you’re a good person…….
Well, whatever the case, we were going to welcome a new member to the Iron Knights. On that day, we decided to hold a welcome party for her, and a slightly more luxurious meal than usual was prepared.
“I’m Emina, I’m going to work here for a while, please take care of me.”
She doesn’t know yet that it’s going to be quite a while……
“I’m Yuta, nice to meet you.”
When I introduced myself, everyone followed suit.
“I’m Jean. I’m going to use you, so be prepared.”
“I’m Lorgo, and I’m glad you’re here…….”
“I’m Nanami. Emina is very strong and reassuring.”
“I’m Farma…….Nice to meet you…….”
“I’m Alana. Whatever you do, don’t mess with Yuta.”
“Hi, I’m Liza. Nice to meet you.”
After the introductions were complete, Emina asked me this.
“I’m not familiar with the relationship between men and women, so I just want to make sure…….”
“That’s correct. Yuta and I have such a deep relationship, you shouldn’t interfere.”
“No, Alana is just Yuta’s property.”
“The relationship between owner and property is a very deep relationship.”
“The relationship between Nanami and Yuta is much deeper!”
“What kind of relationship?”
“We’ve taken a bath together.”
“What? What do you mean by that? Nanami! Explain it to me!”
Emina, who had been listening to this exchange between Alana and Nanami, said to me with a straight face, “I’m sorry.”
“Are you……the kind of person who would take possession of a woman and even bathe with a girl?”
“No! No……is not a mistake, but……”
“I……will keep my distance from you.”
Wow……I’m not sure if I’ve been despised even more……
