MILE CHAPTER 254: DWARF VILLAGE 5

『…So, Mile-chan, how much of this will become our party budget?』(Pauline)

Pauline has a soft smiling face.

However…

『Eh?

This is what I purchased in my free time,

Selling at my free time,

It has nothing to do with the request ordered by everyone this time,

It’s a personal activity…Hie~!』(Mile)

Pauline has a soft smiling face.

But only a few seconds ago, her atmosphere was changing 180 degrees.

『…Hey, Mile-chan, how much of this will become our party budget?』(Pauline)

『Ah, awa, awawawa…』(Mile)

Mile becomes pale with the evil aura from Pauline’s body.

『…So you also have your share of trouble, young miss…』(Merchant)

The merchants looked at Mile with envy before also turned into a pitiful gaze.

『Pauline, that is kinda … ….』(Maevis)

『Last time, the merchant client asked Mile to store the luggage.

It was the request for safe-keeping from the merchants, so, you can still say that it was【part of the request】 even Mile did it alone.

However, this time it’s different.

You know that, don’t you, Pauline? 』(Rena)

『Gununu…』(Pauline)

Being pestered by Maevis and Rena, Pauline had an upset face

Mile, unlike Pauline, doesn’t actually care about money. She does things for fun.

Even though Pauline is her friend… NO, rather because Pauline is her friend, she doesn’t want to have anything to do with money between them.

There are talks of friendship broken due to money from everywhere.

Don’t borrow money from anywhere other than banks.

And more importantly, money isn’t allowed to lend or deposit anywhere other than banks.

Even if I was threatened, I wouldn’t pay unclear money.

Paying once and it will continue forever.

That is what my father told me and my little sister many times in my previous life.

Even if I was born again, that teaching was something I intended to protect and follow.

Anyway Mile kept selling alcohol.

Dwarves noticed that stocks didn’t disappear after so many of wine has been sold.

At first, they only bought an average (moderate) amount in consideration for the others but not they began to purchase more and more.

The dwarves, who have run out of money, are running back to their homes and get more.

And…

『I’m sold~~!』(Mile)

Finally settling down, Mile was stretching a little.

Behind her, Pauline chewed on a handkerchief.

A huge amount of liquor was sold out rather fast.

After that, it seems that the merchants were also steadily selling the products.

Well, since they have come to this village many times, they have completely grasped how much they could sell here.

You can’t call yourself a merchant if you have a large number of unsold products from regular customers.

Although this village aims for self-sufficiency, there are still things they need to purchase from another place.

Yes, just like salt or medicine, etc.

The absolutely necessary items to live

Next is the high demand items like paper, soap, etc. can also sell well.

And luxury goods.

It is a so-called luxury item.

Seasoning and high-quality fabric etc.

Even there are also clothes and furs with poor quality made in villages.

There are still times women want to dress up with lovely clothes like festivals, wedding ceremonies, and other various events.

…And the so-called 【Battle clothes】

Since this is a mountain village, the road coming here is a climbing road.

It was a dangerous road that merchants might lose their luggage,

Rather than load a lot of things that are hardly profitable,

They prefer to make the carriage light, they give priority to speed and safety. Even if there is a demand from the village side.

Liquor is heavy, easy to break on bad roads. On top of that, it’s not a necessity item but the luxury goods.

It can be sold well but you won’t be able to sell too much with the high price (the true price, not dirt cheap like Mile)

But the dwarf will be pleased with it, even just a very small amount. That’s why the merchants only take along a small amount to set the 【Mood】 with the village chief.

『Eh?

Then in the middle of eating, one of the merchants asked in a low voice.

『…So, what’s the problem this time?』(Merchant)

The merchants, who have been friends with the merchant leader for a long time, seemed to have noticed that there was a problem occurred from the atmosphere of the leader when he returned.

Even though there was still a little time before lunch, they tried to gather everyone back soon.

It seems that everyone, who realized it, formed a circle behind the carriages to prevent other people from eavesdropping on their talk.

… Of course, by everyone, it means the merchants, 【Evil Spirit Utopia】 and 【Flame’s Friendship】

Three hired workers, and four girls of 【Red Oath】 were completely unaware of it.

And the merchant leader also answered in a low voice.

『They only sold half of the promised iron products with the total price to be the same as usual.』(Merchant Leader)

『『『What!』』』(Everyone)

The merchants, the hired workers including the party leaders were surprised and raised their voice.

It’s unreasonable.

That means that the price of the item they buy has doubled the price.

And since the number of goods is halved, in order to secure the same profit as before, the profit of the merchants must also be doubled.

In other words, it means that they have to double the selling price in town.

Otherwise, they can’t cover the necessary expenses.

…Such a thing isn’t allowed.

It’s not the fresh foods that are heavily influenced by the season and the weather. It’s the same item with the price is twice the last time.

No customer will buy such a thing.

As expected, there is no 【market price】 with iron products.

Everyone will decide to buy another store’s goods purchased by another route or refrain from buying until the value returns.

『……are you serious…?』(Merchant?)

Yes, with such a price, only iron products will be in deficit.

And it’s also out of the question for the low-profit necessities goods they carried all the way here.

In other words, there will be no next time. This merchant group to this village will be the last this time.

And they would not purchase anything from the village this time. Without metal products to cover the expenses. A trade to a village with high-risk of bandits and monsters attacking on the route.

… It was the end.

『But, everyone in this village, who came here, didn’t have that kind of att.i.tude at all?』(Mile)

『『『They have forgotten everything else with the delicious wine in front their eyes…』』』(Merchants)

Mile’s words were cut off by merchants.
