Chore Granting Sorcerer Volume 1 Chapter 3.5

Ahead of scheduled release thanks to Reg donation


Chapter 3.5 : Wing Break ①

I thought a comfortable adventurer’s life would begin once that guy was gone.

The injuries of myself, Nicola, and Melis have completely healed, and in place of the troublemaker, Sophia joined us. It’s a perfect lineup.

The wings of an enraged dragon cross over a thousand seas. Therefore, we are the “Dragon’s Wings.” If only our injuries heal, we should be able to fly straight to the deepest part of the labyrinth.

And yet, what is this?

“Nicola! Heal us quickly!”

“Y-yes, understood!”

“Too slow!”

Even though we’re in the midst of battle, that Nicola neglected his healing preparations.

“Enough, Melis! Put up a barrier for us!”

I reorganize our formation. While Melis buys us time, the rest of us will retreat.

“Understood! Um, “Definition, my approval–“

The incantation isn’t finished yet? Why? Damn it.

The goblins keep coming closer while Nicola lazily chants. I manage to fend them off by using my injured right hand as support and swinging my sword. With each swing, I alternate between the right and left sides.

Oh, why am I making such a clumsy move?

“Is it done yet?”

“S-Sorry! [Flame Veil]!”

A barrier of flames is deployed. Thank goodness.

“Everyone retreat! Follow me!”

Leaving this place is our top priority. We run to the opposite side of the barrier. Sophia, Nicola, and Melis follow one after another. The goblins can’t chase after us.

“Huff… huff…”

With the enemies no longer in sight, I gradually slow down to a jog.

“Hey, Nicola! Treat us now while we have the chance.”

“Yes!”

I offer my right hand for treatment. As always, light emits from Nicola’s hand, healing my right hand.

“…Ah…”

A momentary pain followed by intense itching. I thought I had gotten used to it, but it’s still tough.

“Alright, then, from here–“

“Wait, Chronos. The treatment isn’t finished yet.”

Nicola admonishes me in a low voice.

“…Isn’t it a bit late?”

“I’m sorry. But, I haven’t been feeling well lately.”

I realize that there’s something unpleasant mixed in her gaze towards me, and I realize that I vented my impatience.

“No, I’m the one who should apologize. I was a bit frustrated.”

I breathe out and look around. I can’t meet eyes with Melis or Sophia.

Damn it, the atmosphere is terrible.

Lately, our forays into the labyrinth have always been like this. At first, I accepted it as part of the training, but it’s about time I started recognizing our declining condition.

“It’s done.”

“Ah, thank you, Nicola! Alright, Nicola’s healing means we’re all safe! Let’s regroup from here!”

I clap my hands to gather everyone’s attention. It’s alright. It’s just a matter of not feeling well. We can go further from here.

“First, confirm our current position for me. Um, try to find something that can serve as a landmark.”

I ponder what to do next, but before that, we need to know our location. Everyone is getting tired, and we need to have a plan to get back. But at the very least, we need to strategize to make this expedition into the labyrinth profitable.

There are too many things to think about. It’s bothersome.

“Um, Chronos.”

“Yes, Melis?”

“By landmark, what kind of things are you referring to?”

“…Sorry, I don’t know. Does anyone know?”

No one raises their hand.

But if we rest our feet, we don’t know when those goblins might catch up to us, so we have to keep moving.

“Um, Chronos-san.”

Sophia raises her hand.

“Oh, do you know?”

“No, I’m sorry, not that. It’s something else.”

She timidly points ahead. It’s hard to see in the darkness, but I quickly understand what she means.

“A wall…”

A dead end.

We have unwittingly brought enemies to the one place in the labyrinth we must not reach.

It has been a while since I joined “Dragon’s Wings” as a replacement for the previous member. However, I have been feeling a strong sense of discomfort.

I was scouted by Chronos-san at a bar.

Since I also needed to decide my next place of employment, it was very convenient to join the rising star party “Dragon’s Wings,” especially since they had defeated a floor boss on their own. I had no reason to refuse.

According to other adventurers, the reputation of “Dragon’s Wings” was that Chronos the swordsman and Melis the magician displayed attacks so powerful that they couldn’t be considered rookies, and Nicola, the divine child of the gods, healed any injuries instantly. Their coordination, while still rough, was bold and cautious, and they were filled with the adventurous spirit of respect and unity, which was evident even for newcomers venturing into the depths of the labyrinth.

But once I actually joined, it turned out to be completely different from the rumors.

I understand that they suffered significant damage from the battle with the floor boss and are still in the process of recovery. At this point, they are already a good party, and they easily overcame the moderately difficult 30th floor during our training.

The problem lies in the floors beyond that.

When faced with slightly more challenging situations, their coordination quickly falls apart. Although we managed to survive this time on the 35th floor of the labyrinth, our lack of understanding of the map led us to a predicament, and Melis ended up injured, requiring several weeks of rest.

“And so, this is it…”

In front of me are numerous documents and notes.

According to Chronos-san, the previous member wasn’t very helpful, so they had to take on many miscellaneous tasks. He asked me to organize them since I also have combat roles to fulfill, and he even offered to share the burden.

However, this is too much.

Reports, plans for transporting supplies, renovation plans for the party house, financial receipts, management of labyrinth expeditions. Not to mention the maps of all the known floors with details about the monster characteristics—what is this, a research paper? It might be in the realm of hobbies, but there’s a clear distinction between what’s useful and what’s not.

Could it be that the previous member handled all of this alone?

It’s normal for four people to share and work on this kind of stuff. On the other hand, what was our leader, Chronos, doing?

If it’s mundane work outside of the party, then it should have fallen under my responsibilities as well. Chronos mentioned that he let everyone share the workload and do things easily, but that was a misunderstanding.

At this point, I thought there might be more work than I had initially anticipated, but little did I know that even that was an underestimation.


Translator note: Looks like I make a big mistake about the title of this novel,

The Chore word should be : Gofer/Scrub/Peon/Grunt/Menial Men/Lackey/Shoelace Tier or other similar word.

While Granting should be translated as : Buffer/Supporter/Enhancer/ etc

Again my mistake not reading the novel ahead and trusting existing mangaupdates entry instead.

Please post comments if you have suggestion of how the title should be translated
