(035) Carol’s unique occupation

Translator: Tseirp

 

The number of people in front of the goddess statue increased so we decided to change location and left.

The red brick warehouse … or rather the slave trading post was just a stone’s throw away.

I entered the slave trading post together with Carol and Haru.

 

” … Welcome, eh, Carol … you’re already done?”

 

A bewitching woman about 40 years of age with long hair dressed in a long skirt said that. She was smoking on something like a pipe. Instead of the regular tobacco, it gave off an extremely sweet smell but I wasn’t a big fan of that fragrance.

 

“I’ve returned, Madame Quince.”

“This person is?”

“He helped me after the adventurers that I was contracted to died.”

” … I see. Carol, return to your room. I will have a talk with him.”

 

Carol obeyed Quince’s words and left.

She didn’t say farewell even until the end, such an indifferent person.

 

Well, I arbitrarily helped her so I shouldn’t expect her gratitude huh.

 

“Sorry, that girl lives in despair.”

 

Exhaling smoke from her mouth, Quince spoke. Living in despair.

I recalled her asking me to kill her.

 

“That’s the fourth party of adventurers to have departed with her and faced annihilation. Even if they are not wiped out, the number of deaths reaches double-digits.”

” … Why does that happen?”

“That girl is the owner of a unique job.”

“Unique job?”

 

I tilted my head to the unfamiliar term and Haru explained to me.

Unique jobs are innate jobs acquired since birth.

 

“The famous ones are hero, demon lord, royalty, and nobility. Nobles are born with the Noble job so there is a proverbial saying that we commoners will never become nobles no matter how hard we work. Additionally, although they are small in numbers, there are jobs that can only be acquired by specific individuals regardless of their job levels. There are some that are innate and some that are acquired. Also, unique job holders cannot easily change to other jobs and they possess peculiar skills that can only be used by that unique job.”

“So that’s what you mean by unique jobs …”

 

Jobs that can only be acquired by a specific person huh. Come to think of it, the goddess … among the blessings presented by Koshmar, there was one to become a hero.

 

“Temptress … that is that child’s job.” (TL: The job is not specifically sexual, so instead of seductress, it should be temptress)

“Temptress? It sounds like a job that is unrelated to Carol though?”

“At night, a particular pheromone is released from her body that attracts monsters. Apparently, it is a job like that. It was when that child was 14 years old, that unique job suddenly appeared and she was immobilized.”

“Immobilized?”

 

I once again heard an unfamiliar term so I asked by parroting the term. Although I feel apologetic to constantly interrupt the story.

 

“It refers to a situation whereby a person can’t change jobs in the usual temples. Or when the job change can’t be done unless by somebody above bishop-sama.”

 

I understood after listening to Haru’s explanation.

 

“Night time, or places where the sun cannot reach. For example, if she enters a labyrinth that stretches underground, in the end, she will attract all the surrounding monsters … however, the attracted monsters will never attack Carol. That is the amazing part about Temptress. But then, according to literature, if the Temptress wounds the attracted monsters, their hypnotic state would be dispelled and even the Temptress would be attacked.”

“So those adventurers buried Carol underground to lure the monsters huh …”

“Ah, that’s because there were multiple requests put up for the collection of brown bear pelt for high prices. Around this season, the brown bears rarely appear at populated locations so they most likely wanted to utilize that child’s power … even if she is buried underground, the pheromone will leak out from the air holes.”

 

Quince said and stood up,

 

“Due to that power, that child must sleep in an airtight room at night so it’s tough in various ways but even so, the demand for her rental is high. Since she is a convenient child if you utilize her correctly. Thanks to you 2 bringing her back, it doesn’t look like she suffered any injuries so this is to thank you.”

 

After saying that, Quince took out a small bag containing coins.

 

” … Thank you …”

 

I took the small bag of coins and bowed.

I did not help her for the sake of money but I believe this was purely courtesy from Quince.

 

Then, we left the trading post.

 

“Master … perhaps with master’s ability?”

” … I might be able to change Carol’s job … but …”

 

I looked at the job of the man passing by ahead of us.

 

【Carpenter Lv17】

 

I changed that man’s job to Commoner in my mind.

However … his job did not change.

I’ve tried it before but I can only change the jobs of companions.

Due to that, I can’t secretly change other people’s jobs.

 

I do more or less have the option of changing Carol’s job when I rent her.

However, what should I do after that?

 

There’s a high chance Quince will find out about my skill to change jobs.

To change her job without letting anybody else other than her knowing, my only option is to buy her.

 

That’s not likely to be a bad thing. It will also likely solve Carol’s problems.

However, if we encounter the same thing again, will I solve it the same way and keep buying slaves?

And will I reveal my secret to every one of them?

 

I’m afraid to do that.

 

” … I mean, we don’t really have the leeway to purchase Carol now. Shall we go to the Adventurer’s Guild?”

“That’s right, since it seems like the pelt of the brown bear will sell for a high price if we sell it now.”

 

Haru did not mention anything about Carol’s job after that and she followed after me.

 

 

Author’s Note:

Don’t have money.

Must earn it.

  1. well it’s not like every slave he meets is going to need a jobchange….is it?

    thanks for the chapter

    • Pyro

      It is very possible, a LOT of stories involve the MC gathering people via something only the MC can do.

      • h2h1z

        Like: “Oh, you’re missing an arm/eye? I just so happen to have healing/magical replacement powers that can fix you…. also join my harem……” That sounds about right….

      • Waht

        …Yeah, that’s true, but why must they all be slaves? lol
        The MC can encounter people in need of aid, who are not bound by a complicated contractual law.

        • puppy0cam

          it happens like this so that the lawyer job can exist. obtained at level 100 jobless

    • All I can say to that is “don’t underestimate MC story plot” XD

    What happened with ads?

  7. Taupinette

    (∩◉ᴥ◉)⊃━☆゚.* Thanks~

  8. Random Internet User (tm)

    Poor thing’s a monster magnet.

    Thank you kindly for the chapter.

  9. Doesn’t have enough money? Time to grind xp and some cash.
    That smooth move where he doesn’t deny the possibility of buying her XD

    Thnx for the chappy~ Nanodesu~

  10. That author’s note…is he talking about the characters, or himself…?

    Thanks for the chapter! 😀

  11. Kortodo

    At least it’s just a job and not a curse. If his ability works on her, then he has a monster bait he can toggle on/off as needed. They could buy a large sack and have Carol get into it every time they need to bait monsters.

    She’s an investment that will pay itself off very quickly, with their increased hunting speed. And as she levels the job, she’ll probably be able to attract monsters from further away, and maybe even get the ability to control what she attracts and at what range.

    • All Night

      With the Japanese Beta male syndrome? It’s unlikely. He’ll change it and never change it back,

  12. Higor

    Seriously man, thank you so much for your hard work. You are awesome 😀

  13. Moridain

    My guess is that instead of changing her job (which he won’t be able to do) she will simply level up. A higher level skill will be the ability to ‘contract’ with monsters.
    Basically a Tamer job?

  14. zenen

    one chapter prior “what do you want to do with these dead adventure’s?””leav them there, we have plenty of gold, and mostly its troublesome”[she looks at the adventure’s bags of gold]”i dont think it’s be too troblesome tho?”are words he didtn’t hear as he walked away.

  15. Miri

    Fuck that Onii-chan,go buy her! sooner or later you will anyway ;3
    and dont worry I will come soon
    -Imouto

  16. Kryzin

    Thxs for the chapter.
