Chapter 56 – King of the Underground (7)

Odum spent a significant amount of effort in receiving the girl hanging in mid-air. The fat old dwarf’s face was bunched up together, and his thick bushy brows were nearly knitted together while grumbling into her ears that she was too bold and completely ignored danger, and caused him as an old man to have so much trouble and worry.

But in the end, he asked her out of concern: “Lass, are you injured anywhere?”

“Ah!” Romaine stood back on the ground, patted her chest and said happily: “That was dangerous!”

But he could hardly see that she thought she was in danger, rather, her face was flushed with excitement.

[Oh, so you know the meaning of d—]

The dwarf’s thoughts died in his mind when the merchant girl followed up eagerly: “That was interesting!”

“Lass, the way you’re thinking is too dangerous! What’s going to happen if I didn’t come?” The dwarf’s expression became strict, and his thick accent immediately revealed itself.

“But old mister, you came,” Romaine said.

Odum scratched his head, thinking that his current line of argument was probably not good enough to convince her, so he tried again: “That’s a huge coincidence that I’m there. What’s going to happen if I’m not? Furthermore, lass, you’re giving this old man a huge amount of trouble, and the biggest problem is that you interfered with my time to drink—”

“My aunt says that drinking so much is bad for health!” Romaine interrupted.

The dwarf immediately felt a headache coming on. The girl’s thought process was different from ordinary people.

He started to wonder if rescuing the girl was a wrong decision. Perhaps he should have pretended to see nothing from the start and head off to drink his beer instead. Maybe he should not even raise his head up.

He put up a hand to stop her.

“We’re not discussing this problem! And do you think a dwarf who doesn’t drink can be called a dwarf? Lass, your aunt is……” Odum paused for a moment, feeling that it was not right to talk behind someone’s back, especially when the person in question was a female. “In any case, this is this, and that is that. Look, a normal person wouldn’t tie their bedsheet from the window and dangle in mid-air behind the inn, right?” The dwarf began to lecture her, although he started to think there was something wrong with his words.

But when he pondered about it, he was unable to find out where the problem was so he shook his head and stopped thinking. The only thought had left was that his precious time to drink in the afternoon was leaving him.

Because the girl started talking again.

“You’re right,” Romaine nodded after a moment of thinking, “but I’m forced to do it because I need to go to the mines!”

Odum did not realize that his attention was gradually pulled away by the girl in front of him, and he looked at her in stunned silence.

“…… What is your business with the mine? Women aren’t allowed in there.”
