I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 95
Chapter 95: Boom and Bust (1)
If you read this on other websites, it means it was stolen. Read the translation only on itsladygrey.wordpress.com.
I went to the guard station, but it was in vain.
“The corpse of the monster… We just left it to the mercenaries. Even if we were to keep it, we have no way of dealing with it.”
These were the words of the capital guard who had a troubled look on his face. I tried to dig further, but to no avail.
I took a deep breath. A monster suddenly appeared in the middle of the Capital, wasn’t this attitude too passive? If Heilon’s soldiers hadn’t passed by in a timely manner, there would have been heavy casualties.
“Sir, isn’t it a bit strange?”
Leander nodded. “I agree.”
I couldn’t help but feel uncomfortable. How the hell did the monster appear?
“Are we going back to the mansion?”
“No, we’re already outside. We have to investigate.”
“Where do we go?”
“Mercenary guild. Monsters are their business. And we also need to find out about yesterday’s intruders.”
No offense, but they were at the top of my list of suspects.
I opened the door of the familiar guild building. There were mercenaries who were drinking, even though it was daytime. Some people recognized me, and made a sound like “hiccup—”. What a rude way of looking at a person.
I was going to ask ‘what about the guild leader?’, but before I even opened my mouth, everyone had pointed their fingers towards the upper floor.
At least, they had a bit of kindness.
Sir Leander grinned next to me.
“As expected, the Lord’s eyes were correct.”
At this point, I couldn’t tell if that was an insult or a compliment.
When we went up and entered the guild leader’s room, the leader had a similar reaction.
Why was he trembling that much? That was an overreaction for just a little intimidation last time.
“As we promised…”
“Ah, of course.”
I pulled up a chair and sat down. I looked at the leader. After just a few days, he looked very tired. There were also several injuries on him.
“Why did you come?”
First of all, I smiled as friendly as possible.
“There are a couple things. But first, I was wondering if we could find the creepy rabbits who entered our house without permission.”
The guild leader shook his head. “Well, it’s not on our side.”
I rolled my eyes. “Really?”
The guild leader desperately nodded his head. “Yeah, we had already failed one, and they were angry, and on location they—”
I listened to him with interest.
“On location they?”
The guild leader hurriedly closed his mouth, thinking he had spilled too much.
“What else happened after I left?”
“Oh, there was really nothing!”
I felt like he was trembling too much compared to the threats I made last time. I wondered if he was acting. But it didn’t seem like he was.
“Okay then. Do you know anything about the monster that appeared this morning?”
“The corpse was not disposed of by us either.”
“I didn’t specifically ask about the corpse of the monster, did I?”
“…” the guild leader became a mute who ate honey. He seemed quite taken aback.
“Okay, you can just tell me now. Do you know where that monster came from”
Behind him, Leander lightly cracked his neck and shook his shoulders.
Uh, the sound sounded quite threatening.
The guild leader checked the closed windows and doors and lowered his voice.
“If I tell you, will you protect us?”
“Yes. You’ve already kept your promise once.”
“Actually, it’s not directly related to my guild, but…”
Aha. No wonder he opened his mouth so easily. It was not directly related to them, so there was less chance of them getting damaged.
“Recently, other guild mercenaries have received unusual requests.”
The guild leader cautiously continued.
“Yesh, well, I don’t know the details, but it was a request to capture the monster alive.”
“Capture? Did any of the guilds accept that request?”
He made a circle with his thumb and index finger.
“I heard there was a lot of money.”
A lot of money.
“What did they do with the captured monsters?”
“I don’t know. For mercenaries, we just need to get paid.”
Anyway, I could guess roughly from hearing this. So, someone captured the monsters and brought them into the capital.
“Your guild didn’t accept that request?”
I was dumbfounded. Who the hell was that? A mercenary commission. Someone made such a request to mercenary guilds.
In any case, the situation was clear now. Someone brought the monster in.
I rummaged through my robe and put a pouch of money on the table.
“Oh my gosh, something like this…”
“Don’t say stupid things. No matter what, I’m a fair person.”
If you do me any damage, I would repay you, but if you help, I’ll do the same thing.
I waved my hand and left the room.
“Good luck next time.”
As I stepped out of the building, Leander smiled contentedly.
“As expected, the young miss has a resemblance to the master’s manner.”
These words.. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, was this really a compliment? Or was this an insult?
