Abuse in a different world.
I sit alone in the corner of the adventurers guild.
Even though I went there only because they called me, and answered because they asked.
Day 18 – Evening, Omui Adventurers Guild, the Guild Master’s Office
Calling back Haruka-kun at the end, we ask for confirmation.
「In other words, we can treat it as Haruka-kun defeating them?」
It’s unbelievable, but everyone’s stories match, and Ofta wouldn’t joke or lie about something so important.
「Even if you say that he defeated them…… How? All by himself.」
It’s impossible. The only ones who could defeat them solo are S rank or above, total monsters over Lv 100.
And Haruka-kun is Lv 9. He doesn’t even have a minimum level required to become an adventurer. He can’t even become an apprentice. Narrowly beating weak monsters is the most that he can do.
「Rather than defeating, it’s more like an accident? They were obliterated upon the collision? How should I put it, a common multi-wolf collision accident?」
No good, I don’t get what he is saying at all. But the fact that no one is trying to refute him means that it’s true. What is a multi-wolf collision accident? It’s a common thing?
What I managed to understand is that the pack lead by a Big Green Wolf was subjugated. Ofta’s party is safe. Haruka-kun rescued them. And that’s probably all I need. That’s enough.
As for the multi-wolf collision accident, I’ll send an inquiry to the headquarters. We don’t have information on such a thing here.
Day 18 – Evening, Omui Adventurers Guild, Purchase Counter
「I’d like to sell some F grade? magic stones?」
Why put it as a question? Ah, it’s that person, I have to be as polite as possible.
「F grade magic stones, correct? The price will vary depending on purity and size, so we first will appraise them, and determine the price. Will that be fine with you?」
「Where should I put them?」
「Eh? On this counter, please?」
Where else did he think to put it? Even though it’s the purchase counter……
「? Won’t they fall off?」
「Eerr? Please put them in the center of the counter, so they won’t fall off?」
「? The center……? Ah, so there is some kind of spell! Got it.」
Some kind of spell? On the counter?
Then, he turned his bag upside down over the……counter……「Ah?……」
On that day, it took 20 people, working all night, to gather and appraise all of the magic stones that poured onto the counter and the floor. I had enough of that person.
Day 18 – Evening, Omui Guild.
The president and others registered as adventurers without a problem, and we also managed to sell magic stones.
20 people over level 30 with cheat abilities coming to register caused a huge uproar among the ladies behind the registration window.
And I’m just sitting here, surrounded by old men.
At level 10, the adventurers go through an apprenticeship, training as a part of a party.
At level 20, they’d be formally recognized as adventurers, allowed to form a party.
And at Lv 30, they will be able to act independently, becoming full-fledged adventurers.
In other words, I cannot register with my current Lv 9. And even if I turn level 10, since I cannot join a party, I still won’t be able to register.
I will be able to register at level 20, but since I can’t form a party with anyone, I won’t be able to take any requests. Only sell magic stones.
In other words, I can’t become an adventurer until I reach level 30.
And since I’m not an adventurer, I can’t sell magic stones.
There was no point in coming to the guild. Getting picked on, bullied, and surrounded by the old men, nothing but troubles.
However, today, they made an exception and purchased magic stones. Likely the reward for saving the old men.
I went to the purchase counter and followed instructions of the receptionist lady…… And got scolded? Just why? I even asked for confirmation. And they got angry anyway.
Crying, they asked to come back for the payment tomorrow. Eh? Is it my fault? Am I to blame here?
Day 18 – Late Evening, White Weirdo Inn
Getting a recommendation for an inn at the adventurers guild we now head there.
White Lover Inn [1. TL Note: Visually, Weirdo (変人) and Lover (恋人) look somewhat similar, but sound nothing alike.]? Is this a love hotel? Or a souvenir shop?[2. TL Note: “White Lover” is a European-style cookie manufactured and sold by Japanese confectionery maker from Hokkaido.]
The idea of a dude bringing 20 girls to an inn pissed me off but turns out, it’s a love hotel? Just what was the guild thinking when they made this recommendation?
Could it be that they saw the skills of the president and thought that this is her harem?… No, it’s nothing. I was thinking about the sweets from Hokkaido? Probably?
I wonder which skill the sharpness of Stare-san’s gaze comes from?
And while I was wracking my brains over this, the need to do that disappeared.
「White Weirdo Inn」
Time to call the police! It’s a weirdo! And a white one! And on top of that, it’s an inn! I want to report this!
「Welcome, the adventurers guild already contacted us.」
「Goodbye. I’m off to burn down the guild.」
A poster girl. A cute poster girl. The problem is the poster itself. A big problem.
「Mister, please wait. It’s okay. The strange is only the name. You shouldn’t set fire to the adventurers guild!」
「No, it’s not okay. White Weirdo is surely not okay. If you know that it is strange, why won’t you change it?」
Half crying, the poster girl tried to stop me. Indeed, going all the way back just to burn the guild sounds like a pain. I should just shoot at it from here.
「Haruka-kun, why are you holding your staff like a rifle? Why are you pointing it at the adventurers guild? Why do your eyes look like those of the main character from Golgo?[3. TL Note: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golgo_13] Don’t make a girl cry!」
「Eh? I’m not going to shoot? I’m not, but… It’s just that? Diving into the urge a bit?」
「I heard about giving in to an urge, but diving into it? So you are doing it totally on purpose? You are brimming with the desire to shoot! This is a premeditated crime!」
「Okay, President, will you be able to say 『Yesterday, I stopped at White Weirdo’s place until the morning』?」
The job was accepted, free of charge.
「No, doon’t! The ladies from the guild often recommend our inn, so we are getting a lot of customers, and, and, and also……」
For some reason, the poster girl is desperately trying to stop me with tears in her eyes.
「Okay, got it, I won’t shoot.」
Having said that, I patted her on the head, after which her face turned red.
「Father, we have guests.」
Saying that she went back into the inn.
Yes, it’s fine. Tomorrow, I’m going to the guild anyway. So there is no need to shoot right now.
For some reason, the girls are looking at me with Golgo eyes? Eh?
The food was indeed tasty. The first proper meal in a while. Real cooking.
The rooms were tidy, and though it required an additional fee, they also had a bath.
Yeah, just do something about the name.
White Weirdo seems to be the name of the hero from the town where the owners of this inn previously lived. Who was it that gave a hero such a weird nickname?
When a giant swarm of monsters appeared, threatening to swallow the town, he took a stand against the monsters all alone, allowing the people of the town to escape. The hero perished along with the town and the horde of monsters. No one knows his name. But people called him White Weirdo.
So in admiration and gratitude to that hero, they gave the inn such a name.
I bet the hero doesn’t like it at all. Just forget that name already. White Weirdo……
「As I grew up, father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, all told me stories about White Weirdo. It is only recently that I noticed that the name is weird…… Even so. I have respect, gratitude, and admiration towards him.」
Yeeah, changing the name will be impossible. She has been brainwashed since her childhood.
「They say, that until the very end, White Weirdo kept fighting the monsters, saying that this is his town, so he won’t run away, that he will protect his home until the end, and that everyone else should escape, and make new homes of their own, homes filled with happiness. So we decided to make this new home a happy one, that’s why the name is「White Weirdo」……」
Yeah, it could’ve been a great story, if not for the last part.
It could be a legend, if not for the name.
I gave up on making them change the name. Even if I tell them that if you give up, the Inn is already over[4. TL Note: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EG7d8tfWkAMQOnW.jpg:large https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slam_Dunk_(manga)] they still wouldn’t change the name anyway.
I chill in my separate room.
I’m level 9 now, let’s check status while I can.

As expected, I didn’t get Flight, but I now have「Rush Lv 1」. Is this a skill for moving faster? Or for a charge-like something? Which is it? I did both of those after all.
Then,「Air Walk Lv 1」, walking in the air, the god of NBA.[5. TL Note: Likely reference to Michael Jordan and his air walks.] If it allows me to fight in the air, then I will be able to have fried birds.
Stat-wise I’m beginning to lean towards spellcasting jobs. InT and Min are over 130.
Do mages of this world charge at the monsters?
Since I’m doing that, yet my stats lean towards spellcasting, then isn’t this what it means?
Mages charging at the enemies from the rear. This different world is such a scary place.
