Headless Dullahan 1-8: Friendly Fire
In the end, we deposit Sisty’s money as collateral to the elder who is this village’s chief, and then we go to the woods nearby to kill the goblins.
I somewhat expected a low level quest like this. In the game, I used to run around doing quests just like these to level up.
Upon reaching a village, I now need to return to the forest on foot right away, but unlike before, the tension is high.
I’m originally a Dullahan, so I don’t feel tired.
Now, I’m talking to people for the first time in a while. Even the act of doing so is fun.
Although, Sisty is a bit weary.
But despite the forest being in the same area, the scenery is completely different because of the animals and monsters living here.
These trees are not so high and the forest is not so dim; there are also many animal trails around, making the forest look like a maze.
Walking along the trails and among the bushes, I feel like monsters will attack us at any moment.
“Here, use this for the time being.”
Sisty, who is walking next to me, stops and hands me an object she takes from her waist.
As I unwrap the cloth covering it, I can see a gold- and blue-colored scabbard.
The length is about 60 centimeters, I guess? This is normally referred to as a dagger.
Delicate patterns are carved on the handle and scabbard. At a glance, this dagger looks very costly.
Wanting to check the blade, I unsheathe the dagger. A beautiful white blade is uncovered.
The blade shines brightly, reflecting sunlight.
With this, I sheathe it back in its scabbard.
“This… would fetch a good price…….”
Don’t say you can buy a big mansion with just one of these. If that’s the case, then I won’t be able to use it with peace of mind.
“It’s not that expensive. Even so, that doesn’t mean you can break it.”
“Really? I won’t be charged with ridiculous amounts of money if I break it? I’m penniless, you know.”
“I won’t do that. More than that: don’t pull my cape roughly like you did before!”
Sisty lightly brushes off my doubtful words. While at it, she also emphasize her advice about the cape.
“Is – Is that actually a high-class item!?”
When I pulled at it earlier, there was no sign of it being a high-class item. No, it may be armor with a special effect or created with magic tools.
In any case, this is a fantasy world with swords and magic; it must have magic weapons or magic armor.
“It’s not like that, it’s worth less than the dagger…. But, it’s a memento of my mother, so it’s the most important thing to me.”
Sisty narrows blue eyes and tightly grips her cape of the same color like one clutching treasure.
Most likely it’s either something that was used by her deceased mother, or …
