Chapter 68 : Being Tailed
After waiting for a couple of minutes, the receptionist onee-san came out from the back of the guild.
She was still wearing the Adventurer Guild’s gray uniform.
She looked like an office lady who was about to take a lunch break.
「Sorry for the waiting. Let’s go! Stay close to me, okay?」(receptionist)
「「Okay~」」(Nicola & Mark)
The receptionist extended both of her hands to me and Nicola.
Looks like she wants us to walk while holding her hands.
I felt a little shy to hold a beautiful woman’s hand, but I tried my best to keep my cool.
Nicola was grinning at me.
Ignore her, ignore her~
When we started walking while holding hands, the adventurers around us whispered to each other.
「So this is how Liza-chan looks when she becomes a mother…」
「But before that, she needs a boyfriend.」
「I will be her boyfriend!」
「Don’t be stupid! She’s too good for the likes of you!」
「Ahh, I also want Liza-chan to lick my finger…」
「I want that cute boy to lick my finger~♥」(adventurers)
Hiiiyyyー! The old man’s voice at the end gave me goosebumps.
So this onee-san’s name is Liza, huh?
She’s really popular.
When we went out of the Adventurer Guild, the restaurants in the area were already full of people.
Guess it’s normal since it’s lunch time.
「Umm, your inn is near the South Gate, right?」(Liza)
「Un. That way.」(Mark)
I pointed to the direction of the South Gate.
On the certificate was written my and Nicola’s names and appearance, our home address, and our parents’ job, so she probably found out about my house from that.
「Alright, let’s go.」(Liza)
When we were about to walk, a young man who was cleaning the street in front of a restaurant called out to Liza.
Liza answered by nodding at him once, and then continued walking.
Seeing Liza left, the young man dropped his shoulders.
It looks like Liza usually ate at that restaurant, and that man was a little disappointed that Liza seemed to want to eat at a different place today.
We walked down the main street toward our inn.
Although we couldn’t buy snacks in Gill oji-san’s shop today, Nicola looked happy.
She skipped as we walked while holding Liza’s hand.
Occasionally, she pretended to be out of balance and hit her face against Liza’s butt on purpose.
『This onee-san doesn’t have big boobs, but her butt is amazing! Onii-chan, why don’t you feel it too? You won’t be able to do this without paying money when you grow up!』(Nicola)
This pervert little sister…..
I still feel embarrassed because she licked my thumb, so there’s no way I can do something like that to her!
「Mou… Please walk properly or you would trip over.」(Liza)
Liza scolded Nicola who was clinging to her butt.
After walking for a while, I felt like we were followed.
『I know. Some people are following us, right?』(Mark)
『Yes. There are three of them.』(Nicola)
Thinking that we were going to get a lot of money, I actually have been releasing a little bit of my magical power to my surroundings since we entered the Adventurer Guild.
I could feel the presence of people who have been following us from the Adventurer Guild.
『I wanted to believe that there were no bad people among the adventurers, but…』(Mark)
『In the first place, they gathered here for this big money, right? So it’s natural that there are some people who think about stealing the money.』(Nicola)
『But will you even steal money from little children? Moreover, when there’s a guild staff member with them?』(Mark)
『There are many people with no common sense in this world. Even in your previous world, there are weird people who go into the refrigerator in convenience stores, or people who stick the mouth of the soy sauce bottle in the sushi restaurant into their noses, right? Can you get why they do that? No, right?』(Nicola)
『Well, I think they are just idiots. But I got your point.』(Mark)
Anyway, we have to do something with the people who are following us.
「Onee-chan, going through that alley will be faster, so let’s go there!」(Mark)
I pulled Liza’s hand and entered an alley nearby.
It was a narrow, dim passage.
There were several branches on this alley.
We went into one of the branches, and I made a stone wall several meters high to block the way.
I made the wall as similar as possible to the alley wall so that those men didn’t think that it was made by using magic.
I hope they don’t have any tracking abilities…
「You can make a wall in an instant with earth magic!?」(Liza)
I made a ‘be quiet!’ gesture, and Liza immediately put her hands on her mouth.
So this gesture also works in another world, huh?
After a moment, we heard footsteps behind the wall I made.
「What the heck? It’s a dead end?」
「Tsk! Looks like they took another way. It’s your fault for not paying attention to them!」(men)
Apparently, those men are really following us.
Liza made a strained look on her face.
Looks like she has just realized what kind of situation we are in right now.
Nicola was pretending to be frightened.
She clung to Liza’s waist, buried her face in Liza’s butt, and took a deep breath.
What the heck is she doing at a time like this!?
Anyway, we have to wait until they leave so that we can get out of this alley.
While waiting, I could hear their footsteps became louder.
It seems like they are running around, looking for us right now.
「Did you find them?」
「Nope. I don’t know which way they took…」
「*Sigh* We should have just talked to them in the guild…」
「You fool. Watching over them secretly and appearing in front of them like a hero when they need help is way cooler!」(men)
What is he talking about?
「Well, there was no one who looked like they were going to attack those children anyway, so I don’t think we need to worry about them anymore.」
「Yeah, right. Let’s go back to the guild, then.」
「Ah, but it would be lame if we told the others that we lost sight of Liza-san and the children, so let’s tell them that we successfully escorted them secretly until they got home!」
And then, I heard their footsteps fading away.
They seem to have left.
So they were following us to protect us, huh?
I’m glad that they’re not bad people.
After we realized what exactly happened, Liza and I let out a sigh at the same time.
We then looked at each other and laughed loudly.
Meanwhile, Nicola was still burying her face in Liza’s butt with an ecstatic look on her face.
Liza couldn’t look at Nicola’s face from her angle.
She thought that Nicola was really frightened.
She stroked Nicola’s head to calm her down.
「Are you scared? Don’t worry. They’re not bad people.」(Liza)
Nicola moved her face away from Liza’s butt and looked up at Liza’s face with tears in her eyes.
Seeing Nicola’s crying face, Liza crouched down and stroked her head again.
Well, I’m impressed that she could quickly make a fake crying face, but she forgot to wipe her drool…
But, wait a minute…
Shouldn’t Nicola be able to tell whether those men had bad intentions toward us or not with her sensing ability?
Could it be…..
She didn’t tell me so that she could cling to Liza’s butt…?
This pervert angel…..
