Chapter 5 – A Toast in Celebration, A Night with Temptation
The following night, Mina, Mary, Ingrid, and I raised a toast in celebration.
“Well then, to us rising through the ranks and the beginning of Lian’s adventuring life! Cheers!”
We are on the first floor of the inn where the four of us are staying.
The inn consists of three floors, with the first floor being a tavern in which we are holding the banquet.
We plan to stay here until we have decided on our next quest.
“We have finally reached the single-digits of the C-Class ranking.”
“Yeah. It has been a long time since we entered C-Class. About a year ago?”
While drinking the fruit wine that is the specialty product of this area, Mina and Ingrid spoke in turns.
By the way, underage drinking is not prohibited by this country’s laws, so people can drink alcohol even at a relatively low age, compared to Japan, where everyone under 20 is not permitted.
In other words, this will be the first time I’m drinking booze.
“Congratulations to all three of you.”
And me as well, for successfully traversing to this new world.
Today was the regular update of the adventurer rankings, and from there, we found the new ranking of the party and how much they have increased. Mary moved up to 3rd place in the C class, Meena moved up to 4th place, and Ingrid moved up to 7th place. This chapter is made and translated at stabbing with a dot home dot log.
Looks like their recognition for defeating the A-Class dragon species has went well.
“So you guys have been teaming up for two years now?”
“Yes, I was able to get through E-class and D-class quickly, but C-class is very competitive, as you see.”
Mina nodded in response to my question.
“But you’re almost in B-Class, right? I’ve got to work hard to move up in the ranks, too.”
“Well, in the case of Sir Lian, it will be over in an instant. Fufufu.”
Mina cheerfully smiled as she poured me a drink in my cup.
……Yeah, it’s bitter.
And there’s a hot, burning sensation from the inside of my mouth to my throat.
“The higher you go in the ranks, the tougher the competition gets. Obviously, it’s going to get tougher from here on.”
“But a pass is still a pass! Our goal is the S-Class. In order to catch up with Claudia, we have to do our best! Oh, I’m so fired up! Let’s team up next time, Lian! I want to become much, much stronger!”
Exclaimed Mary in a rather excited tone.
She has been emptying her mug at a high pace for a while now.
“Geez, please do it in moderation, Mary. Drinking too much is not good for you.”
“You don’t get drunk even if you soak yourself in alcohol, though.”
Mina and Ingrid spoke in care and apprehension.
They’re all good companions, aren’t they?
“I know, I know! Oh, Pops, I’ll have another beer!”
Just right after she said it, she grabs another one……
It seems that when Mary was young, she was attacked by a demon that entered the village and was saved by Claudia.
For her, the latter was a hero and the ideal image of being an adventurer.
And after meeting Claudia, her tension seemed to have been pushed to the limit.
“Come to think of it, how many people are there in each rank? I’ve heard that there are about 100,000 adventurers, and about half of them are E class.”
“There are about 100,000 adventurers in guilds all over the world, of which the S class is……let’s see…… how many are there again?”

“Roughly 300 A-class, 2,000 B-class, 15,000 C-class, 33,000 D-class, and about 50,000 E-class.”
“──It is as she said. As expected of our Ingrid. Thank you.”
“So the ranks of the C class are already pretty strong, huh?”
“Well, since the time we formed our party was way back two years ago, and after a lot of partaking in difficult quests, we have raised our ranks by a lot.”
Mina said with a smile. This chapter is made and translated at stabbing with a dot home dot log.
“We nearly died more than once, though.”
Ingrid adds nonchalantly.
“But you have to do that much to get strong and go up the ranks.”
It was Mary who shouted in a fiery tone.
They must’ve gone through a lot before this.
“The highest S-class is an entity that is a highly respected figure in the eyes of the great powers, with all the glory is coming through them at their own accord.”
“As evidence, some people retire from adventuring soon as they reach S-class and take important jobs in the country, while others live a comfortable life.”
“Well, we’re not planning to retire, though.”
“The S class will allow me to take on the most difficult quests. I’m going to hone my skills and prove that I’m strong. Continuing to improve myself, that’s my purpose of being an adventurer.”
Mary said with a grin.
“For me, I want to protect and save more people……that’s it.”
Mina smiles gently.
“I’m on a quest for knowledge. The quickest way to fulfill it is to become an S-Class. I will also get the right to view magical grimoires and lots and lots of forbidden books.”
Ingrid is still at her usual nonchalant tone.
Each of them has their own reasons for aiming at the top.
Eventually, the feast for the four of us came to an end. I went back to my room at the inn.
That was fun.
My body is a bit fluffy, and my head is still feeling light.
Also, I feel like my tension is going up.
I wonder if this is what it feels like when you get drunk?
At first, I thought it was just a bitter-tasting drink.
Un, it’s pretty good, that wine.
I lay in my bed while thinking about this.
Huh? Just now, I heard a strange voice.
Moreover, there’s something strangely soft touching my hand.
When I uncovered the sheets a bit, I saw the beautiful face poking out of the sheets.
Maybe because of the movements, Mary’s eyes opened, and we stared at each other in puzzlement.
“Why are you here……”
“Because this is my room?”
“Your room? But this is the third floor ──”
“Err, this is the second floor, Mary.”
When I told her that, Mary had a shocked face.
“Eh, no way. I went into the wrong room?”
Mary bashfully spoke.
When I first met her, she looked a bit scary, being rough and all.
But now that I’m seeing her up close and getting embarrassed, I can’t help but find her cute.
“I’m sorry about that. I think I drank a little too much.”
Mary gets out of the sheets.
But what came to my sight after was out of my expectations.
Mary was wearing a sexy, see-through negligee, enough to make me dumbstruck all at once.
Through the thin fabric, the fullness of her breasts, the tightness of her hips, and the plumpness of her ass – a highly glamorous body line stood out. Please support the translator by reading at my WordPress site, as it’s contents are more complete there. thanks!
Mary sends me a meaningful glance.
“By any chance ── are you interested? In my body.”
“W-w-what are you talking about?”
Mary asks me a question with an impish smile, a question in which I am totally unprepared for.
To tell the truth, I am very interested in her body.
Her glamorous and sexy legs which are full of life.
Her feminine curves which possesses breathtaking proportions.
Her beautiful face that is filled with impish lust for a man.
“I have…… taken an interest in you, do you know that?”
She’s……interested in me?
I was just about to ask, when Mary came up to me.
“That’s why……maybe this is just the right opportunity.”
A feverish breath is then blown to my ear.
I couldn’t help but let out a high-pitched yelp.
It felt chilly and tingly in my ear, as if an electric current just ran throughout my body.
I’m not sure if it’s because I’m now an elf or not, but my entire ear has gotten unusually sensitive.
“Oh, you’re feeling it here, aren’t you?”
But Mary just smiled with delight.
“Uaah. Aahh, afuuu……uh”
The next thing I knew, I was breathing out a series of pleasured sighs at the intermittent blowing of my ears.
Heated blood started to flow and gather around my lower body, and soon, my cock that has been sleeping stood completely erect.
“I’ve been curious about you since the first time we met, Lian.”
Mary whispered to my ear.
The air blown together with her whispering felt good.
My cock has completely swollen already, as if it wants to burst off from my pants.
“Besides, Lian doesn’t look like he hates it either.”
Mary’s gaze went to my crotch.
It was already tented with prominence.
“So……shall we do it? Sex, I mean.”
