Two more days pa.s.sed by and we were only two to three days away from the small lake.
''Ingres Flower!" Rhea exclaimed and cautiously cut the flower off the tree with expert precision.
Rhea has extensive knowledge of herbs and ores and she been able to identify them and pick them easily.
She said when she was deep in the forest, she spotted precious ores and herbs everywhere but was in no condition to take them.
She must have picked tens of herbs till now, I don't know much about it as I never extensively read about them.
I only had read about them a little when I left my building for the Green Heel as many people were finding precious herbs are ores here.
Although I may have not picked as much as rhea I still found few ingots of ores that worth quite a credits.
We didn't put every precious ore into our backpack lest it makes our backpack heavy.
We only took a minimum and only precious, rhea even threw away some of the ores, she had picked earlier because it is making her backpack heavy.
If she was hunting in westblood, she never would have done that, she would have easily taken ten times more ores she has now but here is different, the danger is everywhere in this realm.
It's been six days since I entered this realm but I didn't see anyone except for Rhea and that dead body from the westblood.
It's been two days since I leveled up but I hadn't had a chance to test my powers fully.
Now I can kill Private grade with the swing of my sword but all the specialist grade monsters that I had come across these days are at peak and I am no match for them.
I feel quite bored sometimes when we just walk and walk but no monster come across us.
I know it's a good thing, lesser the monster we encounter the quicker we will reach our destination.
We suddenly stopped on track when we heard the big rustling come toward us, we quickly activated our weapons hearing the sound.
From the sound of rustle, I can say there are more than three monsters coming toward, just as we attack to caught the monsters off guard but stopped on time because we noticed something peculiar.
It was human silhouettes, soon they come out one by one, there six of them in two groups, three boys and three girls.
They are definitely the same as the group I met earlier, six of them looked fourteen, fifteen years old and are at Private grade, I am sure they are from the central continent as well.
"See, didn't tell you I sense people coming toward us but you wouldn't believe me!" said the boy complacently at the girl.
He had blue hair and blue eyes and looked quite handsome.
''Stop bragging your sensing ability, Aron." Said the beautiful girl with hair black as night.
We just stayed silent, listening to their conversation.
This boy and girl seemed to leaders of their team.
The boy wanted to say something but he stopped and looked toward us smilingly.
"My dear friends from the outer continent I am Shawn and this is Carol." Shawn introduced himself.
"We like to offer a job to you? and you won't be disappointed in our payment!" he said, he sound businessmen in those old movies.
We both became vigilant after hearing him, although I didn't sense any bad intention from still we better be careful.
And saying outer continent means he knows we come from a different place than him.
''What job?" I asked vigilantly, all of them had the power to fight with the Corporal level monster and if they are requesting our help, then it is really dangerous.
"It is very dangerous and chances of you getting injured or maybe dead are high but if you are successful, what we will pay will be a fortune to you," he said, I got little startled hearing his utterly honest offer.
Most of the people will say no to such job but he said he will pay a fortune. He is saying that what he will pay us a fortune to us but not to him.
"What is the job?" Rhea asked. although it may be very and we may not do it but it doesn't hurt to as.
''There is underground cave one hour from here, It is the Cave of grade 3 Sandworm monsters." He said.
I also heard this Grade 3 term from the other team from the central continent, it probably means Corporal grade.
"There are about some fifteen, sixteen monsters are there and five or six Grade 3 monsters while rest is grade 2, what you two have to throw the thing inside that we gave you." He continued while we silently while keeping our expression straight.
"After that, you just have to run, we will handle the rest what comes after," he said so nonchalantly like selling candy.
Rhea and I may look expressionless but we are shocked inside, they are really asking us to risk our lives, although he said before that there is a threat to our life buy still?
''Why aren't are you doing this?" I asked, instead of getting angry at my question he smiled.
"We would have done it but it would take a lot of our time and energy like I said you just have thrown the things we gave and run and we will handle the rest." I was about to reject them but rhea asked the question.
''What we will get if we do this?" Rhea asked I got little startled when she asked this question, I didn't think she will be interested in a life-threatening job.
''Our seniors had hidden two pouches inside that cave, we only need badge inside the pouches and rest it will be yours." He said.
''What's in the pouches?" I can't stop asking myself
"Beside the badge, it will have at least one Knight Grade Artifact and Skill and of course the s.p.a.ce pouch which containing them if you are lucky, you may get potions and mana stones also," he said with still that slight smile on his face.
''Knight Grade?" Rhea asked, I also wanted to ask this question, it is the first time I've heard it.
"Knight Grade refers to 12 basic grades, Knight grades skills and artifacts can be used by all 12 basic stages." he patiently explained to us.
I am really feeling conflicted right now, I would have definitely rejected it before mentioning payment but now that he mentioned it, I am really doing it.
''I'll do it," Rhea said before I could answer, I can understand her choice, they are paying a lot.
f.u.c.k it! "I'll do it too!" I said fortune comes with the risk, I cant always cling to my life, I have to take certain risks to progress.
''let's get going then! Time is precious." He said and we followed the six of them as we ran.
