Geek Mob Mercenary (LIGHT NOVEL VERSION) Volume 2 Chapter 41

Mob No. 41 [Hey, Teito TV! We told non-combatants to evacuate to the colony!]
 
 
 
 
 
From the day after seeing the noble and the [Scarlet Goddess], the work progressed peacefully without any near misses with those individuals.
 
 
 
 
 
And on the morning of the 19th day.
 
While preparing to depart with the old man in the shuttle parking lot,
 
[“Um—Good morning, everyone. Thanks to everyone’s hard work, it seems that today’s work will allow us to completely collect the gorup of floating asteroids. Therefore, if everything goes smoothly and today’s work concludes, please stay in the colony after receiving the completion certificate and return home the next morning. The rewards have already been paid to each of you at the locations where you received the requests, so please collect them there. The mining and extraction-purification of various metals, including rare metals, from the towed giant asteroids are still ongoing, but with everyone’s collection work coming to an end, it marks a milestone. Fortunately, there have been no major accidents or injuries. Let’s finish this to the end without letting our guard down!”]
 
A surprisingly spirited message from the responsible person echoed through the communication.
 
I knew the works had decreased quite a bit, but there’s something quite poignant when the finish line comes into view.
 
“All right, just one more push. With this, we can do another round.”
 
Old man, who avoids drinking on days other than the day before a break, is a true professional.
 
 
 
 
 
After about two hours of us and the old man starting the work,
 
[Emergency alert! Emergency alert! Currently, an unconfirmed fleet is approaching. Due to the refusal of hull code confirmation, it is judged as pirates. Non-combatants evacuate to the colony. Mercenaries on break, prepare for interception immediately. Mercenaries at the worksite who need refueling should evacuate to the colony first, refuel, and prepare for interception promptly!]
 
An emergency alert was issued.
 
I retrieved the old man and immediately began evacuation to the colony.
 
As ships headed towards the colony one after another, there was one ship that didn’t return.
 
In a mercenary ship, things wouldn’t be a problem, but…
 
[“Hey, Teito TV! They said non-combatants should evacuate to the colony!”]
 
[“We can capture footage of the ‘Scarlet Goddess’ in action! No way we’re pulling back!”]
 
“Oh, is that so? Well, then we won’t take any responsibility!”
 
The TV station’s ship seemed to be in trouble.
 
I don’t know if it’s journalism or not, but it’s damn annoying when they get in the way.
 
After dropping off the old man and returning to the scene, I immediately received another widespread communication.
 
“Mercenaries, listen up. I am Marie Lehto-Ruichen-Fariner, a royal rank. This time, I’ll be in temporary command. Any objections?”
 
The communication came from the “Scarlet Goddess,” and it seemed she would be the temporary commander.
 
Damn, people with royal rank do have a different kind of charisma.
 
“The fast ships, join me for disruption and interception. The others, I need you for defense. I’ve already contacted the military and police, so hold your ground until they arrive!”
 
“[Alright!]”
 
Cheers erupted among the mercenaries in response to her words.
 
The charisma of the protagonist’s side is truly something.
 
With this, we should be able to hold our ground well until the military and police arrive.
 
I naturally joined the defense.
 
But, to be honest, there was no need to contact the military and police.
 
 
 
 
 
Only 30 minutes into the battle that started,
 
thanks to the “Scarlet Goddess” setting off explosives, everyone was fired up, and with her incredible performance, every flash turned pirate ships into wreckage or rendered them unable to move.
 
With Arthur-kun also in the mix, frankly, it was getting pitiful for the other side.
 
However, there were still some sneaky ones slipping through, so we made sure to do what we had to do. As a result, the pirate fleet fell into complete silence.
 
When the military and police arrived, it took quite some time to collect the pirate fleet and their ships, confirm the number of shootdowns, and resume operations. It was already past 2 PM.
 
As a result, our job with the old man didn’t finish until 6 p.m., but all the work was done by 9 p.m. Victory over the pirates naturally led to cheers at the end.
 
Of course, afterward, regardless of the time, the celebration and after-party automatically started.
 
I didn’t participate in that; instead, I received the completion certificate, had dinner, and returned to the hotel room.
 
On the way, Arthur and the others tried to talk to me, but I politely declined.
 
I’m not a fan of alcohol, after all.
 
The old man, knowing I don’t handle alcohol well, just exchanged tired greetings.
 
He seems intent on drinking with his comrades.
 
Upon returning to the hotel room, I took a shower and changed into my roomwear.
 
On TV, they were already featuring the recent battle, focusing on the Scarlet Goddess.
 
Oh, Arthur and Seira are on it too.
 
Those two are likely to get more requests in the future.

The next morning.
 
I decided to leave the colony first to avoid the crowds.
 
I thought there would be people sleeping drunk in various places, but surprisingly, there was no one, and it was very quiet.
 
I had already greeted Arthur and Volvord yesterday.
 
After greeting the staff who were awake for management, I left the colony.
 
It took less than a day from the planet Yttz to the planet Colcos, but it would take two days to return, even with several gates.
 
It would be nice if the gates were bidirectional, but there’s nothing we can do about it.
 
And from the morning of departure, I returned to the headquarters on the planet Yttz by 6:30 p.m. the next day.
 
 
 
I parked the ship in the parking lot and just refueled it.
 
Then I walked through the building, headed to the reception lobby, and handed the completion certificate to Mr. Lones.
 
“Long time no see. You’ve certainly been handling the requests.”
 
“It would have been better if there weren’t any pirates left at the end.”
 
While casually complaining, I watched the payment process.
 
“First, there’s the fixed 2 million. Then, you crushed 7 pirate ships, totaling 2.84 million. That’s a total of 4.84 million. Good with that information?”
 
He said.
 
So, while it wasn’t explicitly stated this time, it seems the purchase of pirate ships was authorized.
 
Thanks to that, unexpected income came in.
 
“Just 40,000 in cash.”
 
I did that because I need to transfer one-third of this reward to my parents through the bank.
 
If I withdraw only 40,000, I can split the remaining 4.8 million into three parts at 1.6 million each.
 
All that’s left is to go to the bank tomorrow and make the transfer.
 
At that moment, unbelievable news came on the lobby TV.
 
[We have breaking news. The rare metal extracted from the asteroid belt of the planet colcos, which was collected and refined during the collection operation the other day, has been stolen by someone. The police are currently intensively investigating…]
 
It was reported that the rare metal collected from the asteroid belt of Planet colcos during the collection operation had been stolen.
 
 

 
 
The following morning,
 
I decided to depart from the colony first to avoid the rush.
 
I expected to see people sleeping off their intoxication in various places, but surprisingly, there was no one around, and it was eerily quiet.
 
I had already bid farewell to Arthur and others yesterday.
 
After greeting the staff who were awake for maintenance, I left the colony.
 
It didn’t take long to travel from Planet colcos to Planet Yttz, but returning would take two days, even with several gateways at our disposal.
 
It would have been convenient if the gates were bi-directional, but that couldn’t be helped.
 
The next day, at 6:30 PM, I returned to Planet Ytttz, our home base.
 
 
 
I parked the ship at the docking bay and refueled it, leaving only the fuel.
 
Then, I made my way through the building to the reception lobby and handed the completion certificate to Mr. Roans.
 
“Long time no see. Looks like you’ve handled the requests without fail.”
 
“It would have been better if there weren’t any pirates.”
 
While casually complaining, I watched the payment process.
 
“First, the fixed 2 million. Then, for the 7 pirate ships you destroyed, it’s 2.84 million. Total of 4.84 million. Is that okay with you?”
 
he said.
 
Although it wasn’t specified this time, it seemed buying the pirate ships had been authorized.
 
Thanks to that, unexpected income had come in.
 
“Just 40,000 in cash.”
 
I needed to send one-third of this reward to my parents through the bank.
 
By withdrawing just 40,000, I could split the remaining 4.8 million into three parts, totaling 1.6 million each.
 
I would go to the bank tomorrow to make the transfer.
 
At that moment, unbelievable news flashed on the lobby TV.
 
“We have breaking news. The rare metals extracted from the asteroid belt of Planet Colcos, which were excavated and refined after the collection operation was completed the other day, have been stolen by unknown individuals. The police are currently launching a full investigation…”
 
It was reported that the rare metals extracted from the asteroid belt of Planet Colcos during the collection operation had been stolen.
