Chore Granting Sorcerer Volume 2 Chapter 6 part 3

Having finished the customary post-dungeon dinner as usual, while the night was still early and wholesome I returned to my room.
“Ahh, that was fun!”
Tomorrow’s a day off.
I need to properly rest for working long into the future too.
Well, even saying that, I normally get appropriate breaks and it’s already more than enough.
Collapsing into bed, I grab the bucket placed next to it.
And threw up.
Lately, I’ve felt like throwing up the whole time.
I don’t get why I feel like throwing up so much.
I’m happy every day. I’m at the very center of … Read the rest

Adventuring in unfamiliar floors with my wonderful companions.
Every step felt fresh.
Lost in a fantastical jungle deep in the dungeon, writhing plants I’ve never seen before. Dozens of new species with each step taken.
My curiosity gushes endlessly. The ringing isn’t a big deal.
Ah, come on, that’s exactly when it happens.
[Vim here, I’ve spotted lizardapes.]
The usual broadcast to the full party.
Tension runs through the party.
We carefully search and prepare to engage as discussed.
My head is pounding. Sounds are loud and clear.
Breathe in, breathe out.
It’s fine, just like normal.
And lately I’ve … Read the rest

Chapter 6 – not human enough

I’m Vim Strauss!
I might as well admit, I’m the ace at the top-notch party Night Dragonfly!
It’s a huge responsibility, but I’m proud to bear everyone’s expectations!
Today is a rest day, or rather, a training day.
Preparation is just as important, if not more so, than the real thing when it comes to delving into dungeons.
I have to approach it with that mindset, especially given my position!
First thing in the morning, I head out to the courtyard at dawn. The pleasant chill … Read the rest

Will it be okay?
Will it come out naturally?
Will it not be unnatural?
It’s fun but tiring because I’m not used to it.
There may be more of this after. It’s also part of getting to know people for work, so it’s hard to refuse. I don’t even know where I might mess up.
Then I thought.
There was actually no after-party as such.
Just a few people getting together for another drink, without any obvious coercion.
Oh, they really are capable people, Night Dragonfly.



After … Read the rest

Oh, this is one of those post-job drinking parties, isn’t it?
“That sounds good. Vim-kun, do you have a favorite place you like to go to?”
“I don’t have a particular favorite… but I do go to some places occasionally.”
“Alright then, how about there? Oh, and if you want to keep it a secret, that’s completely fine. We can decide when the time comes.”
Greta’s face came to mind.
Come to think of it, if I ever became famous, I think I was asked to promote their business.
“No, no, they’ve asked me … Read the rest

I realized that its left arm, which had been in a defensive position, was a setup for its second attack.
At this rate, the balance between offense and defense would shift.
I had only one option left: rely on my right arm, which I could still move. I spread both arms wide, exposing my body, but if I could predict its movements, it wasn’t a bad gamble.
With the tip of the sword slightly free, I matched it with the approaching left claw.
I bent my knee and floated in the air, locking my wrist, elbow, and shoulder, using all … Read the rest

Vim’s performance was so impressive that I couldn’t help but nod in agreement.
The main reason we hired him was as a means of countering the hierarchical leaders, who should have been beyond our reach.
With him around, many of our members could move forward with confidence. They became less timid and could unleash their true potential more easily.
That alone was enough, but when he had free time, he would also help with mapmaking, resource development, and information gathering for us.
Camila’s group had gathered valuable information on the surface, allowing them to make useful … Read the rest

Chapter 5 – Wonderful Days

Preparing my equipment in my room, I go down to the great hall on the first floor.
Today it’s dungeon diving again.
If the 98th floor is fully conquered, the 99th floor would naturally be next. Once a certain amount of information is gathered, busy times will be upon us again in no time.
With the incident of the “[Twilight Owls]”, there’s been no rest, but this is where we must hold our ground as the vanguard party.
Especially as a newcomer, I have to try even … Read the rest

Where Rita brought me was a long, long hallway extending into the innermost part of the base.
So long I doubted you could space lighting at regular intervals, she guided me holding a torch.
The temperature was gradually dropping, chilling my skin that had been flushed with heat. The atmosphere changed too, taking on an eerie feel.
What we arrived at was a large door.
“Um…Ms. Rita, what’s this?”
“You’ll see if you open it.”
Prompted, I pushed the door open.
Beyond wasn’t a room but a large hole.
Not a natural cave. A large man-made tunnel like a coal … Read the rest

Chapter 1.5 : Wing Break 3

Dragon’s Wings’ expansion was going smoothly.
Though approval hadn’t come through yet, no one disputed them being an A-rank party at this point, and they had no shortage of recruits.
“How’d it go with that girl, #15?”
“Hmm, that redhead warrior?”
“Yeah, her.”
“Not sure. She’s a cutie, right?”
“Totally. Questionable battle strength, but cheerful–“
That’s when we heard the news about Night Dragonfly conquering the … Read the rest
