The Weakest Summoner’s School Conquest – I Became Strong Only After Losing – Chapter 55

Returning to the waiting room, Albero took a deep breath.

“Whew. . . . . .Somehow we made it.”

“Didn’t expect you to show off your skills like that. You’ve got guts.”

“I was super scared. . . . . .”

“Me too. . . . . .”

Albero and the others had a brief moment of respite.

At present, Arnaud has been summoned by the auction organizers. He managed to pass it off as a surprise, but it’s unthinkable to remove the shackles of a slave during an auction.

Then, Arnaud returned.

“Phew. . . . . .I got off with a stern warning. The audience was thrilled, and they just told me not to do it again. But I don’t think there will be a next time, and I expect this auction house will disappear from this world. . . . . .”

Arnaud had a slightly intimidating aura.

Kid spoke without concern.

“So, what’s next?”

“After the auction ends, the man who bought Albero-kun and the others will come to this room. We make a contract, transport them to the demon village, and once the payment is made there, the deal is finalized.”

“We’re the ones transporting them, right?”

“Yes. That shouldn’t change.”

Hearing Kid and Arnaud converse, Ashe slumped in disappointment.

Lapis tilted her head in curiosity.

“What’s the matter?”

“Ugh. . . . . .Being bought by a guy who looks like a Minotaur. . . . . .It’s just so creepy.”

“I feel the same way. Calling us ‘rare items’ and such. . . . . .”

“Indeed, he’s like a pig-shaped Minotaur. Fufu, I bet if you grilled him, he’d go ‘oink oink’.”

“”. . . . . .””

Sometimes, Lapis could be quite extreme.

Something caught Arnaud’s attention, and he quickly ushered Albero and the others back to their cage.

Suddenly, the door opened without a knock, and the aforementioned “Minotaur man” entered with two men who looked like his attendants.

Both Arnaud and Kid knelt.

“Hey there! I’ve come to see my adorable slaves! Let’s get the contract done!”

“Okay. Please sign these documents.”

The man signed the documents Kid presented.

His name apparently was “Boobucky.” Kid struggled to hold back his laughter.

After signing, Boobucky approached the cage.

“Huff huff. . . . . .Ahh, so cute. The girl with emerald green eyes, the beautiful girl with silver-blue eyes. . . . . .Hehe, such big breasts. . . . . .And the black-haired one is also cute♪.”

“””……!”””

He was like the offspring of a pig and a Minotaur.

Despite the lack of heat, he was sweating profusely. His face was more than twice the size of Albero’s. His face was full of blemishes, probably from overeating and an unhealthy lifestyle. His eyes were abnormally small, yet his mouth and nose were huge.

And he had a strong body odor. Wearing a bright red robe over his bare skin. . . . . .Albero stopped observing his repulsive appearance and attire.

By the way, Boobucky seemed to be interested in men too.

“Hehehe! The other ‘rare item’ was also cute. Their eyes looked lifeless, but they looked like a doll. I’ll dress them up and display them in the corner of my room!”

“. . . . . .!”

“Well then, transport them to the 『demon village』. I’ll pay the fee there.”

The demon village.

It’s the village where the Demon Hubris of 『Pride』 resides.

They finally reached the starting point.

Arnaud received a map to the village and an entry permit from Boobucky’s attendant. Satisfied, Boobucky cheerfully left the room.

“It stinks. . . . . .and it’s all greasy. A wild Minotaur would have been better.”

“I agree.”

Arnaud states firmly while checking the documents.

“Alright. The auction is over. Let’s head to the demon village now.”

“Is it close from here?”

“Yes. It’s about half a day by carriage. We’ll arrive by night.”

“. . . . . .There’s also the girl of the Parasitic type, right?”

“Most likely. . . . . .But first, Albero-kun, we need to subdue the demon. We can search for her leisurely later.”

“Understood. . . . . .”

“The moment you guys purchased a minor, Boobucky committed a crime. Once everything is settled, we’ll arrest him and under the guise of slave protection, we’ll take care of the Parasitic type girl. As for her future. . . . . .”

“Yes. If what the auctioneer said is true, her family is already gone. . . . . .If she wishes, I’m thinking of inviting her to the S-class.”

“. . . . . .That might be for the best.”

“Ashe, Lapis, Kid. Are you all okay with that?”

“Of course!”

“I don’t mind!”

“. . . . . .I don’t care, but look at her eyes, they’re lifeless. . . . . .I don’t think she’ll be of much help.”

“We don’t need her as a combat asset right now. Besides, if you and I are there, there won’t be any issues.”

“. . . . . .True.”

“Now, our discussion is over. Albero-kun and others, please continue pretending to be slaves.”

Albero and the others nod, resuming their act as slaves as they exit the auction venue.

◇◇◇◇◇◇

As they went outside and headed for the carriage. . . . . .someone was there.

“Oh, you are. . . . . .from the Fragarach Slave Trading, right?”

“And you are from the Yazawa Slave Shop. . . . . .”

Near Albero’s carriage were slave traders with a parasitic type girl.

Coincidentally, the carriages were parked side by side.

The owner of Yazawa Slave Shop, Yazawa, smiled slyly as he looked at Albero.

“My apologies. Even though I wasn’t aware, the slave you hid turned out to be a rare find. Hahaha, seems I’ve got the better deal in terms of interest?”

“It seems so. By the way, about that girl. . . . . .”

Annoying as it was, the mature Arnaud didn’t let it get to him. On the contrary, he tried to extract more information from the other party.

“Ah, I found her. The backstory I told earlier is true. A Minotaur stampede annihilated her village. . . . . .When I passed by the village after the stampede, I found her on the brink of death, having lost both legs. Suddenly, as her Summoned beast vanished, her legs grew back. . . . . .”

“. . . . . .I see.”

Without a doubt, it’s a parasitic type Summoned beast.

However. . . . . .even when Arnaud looks at the girl, she doesn’t react at all.

Kid was restraining Albero, who was trying to say something.

“She apparently goes by the name Ridelle. She hasn’t spoken a word since her recovery. . . . . .It’s as if her soul died with her parents. Well, I’ve sold her now, so her future care is their problem. Hahaha!”

“. . . . . .Hahaha.”

Arnaud struggled to produce smiles and laughter.

Yazawa placed Ridelle in the carriage, taking the driver’s seat.

“Well then! It seems we both had profitable deals.”

“Yes. . . . . .Goodbye.”

Yazawa’s carriage started to move.

Albero, who was left behind. And then, Kid said.

“I see. . . . . .”

“Hey, what’s with you? What’s the matter?”

When Ashe said this, Kid looked at Albero and spoke.

“Unlike you and me, it doesn’t seem like that girl willingly obtained the Parasitic type Summoned beast. She doesn’t have the will to fight like us.”

“I thought the same.”

“What will you do? Even if you pull her into the S-class, fighting is obviously impossible. It’s a waste of your effort. Frankly, I think it’s better not to get involved.”

“Please wait!! Then, what will become of her?”

“Who knows. Her spirit seems broken, but she can probably survive just fine as that pig’s plaything. Given time, her emotional wounds might heal. Besides, after Arnaud arrests the pig, she will be protected, and there’s also the possibility of her being sent to an Asgard Kingdom facility.”

“Wait, but. . . . . .I still feel uneasy… Albero, what will you do?”

” “

Then, Arnaud clapped his hands loudly.

“That’s enough talking. The priority is the demon. Let’s set out.”

“. . . . . .”

Unable to give an answer, Albero boarded the carriage and departed.
