Translated by Zzonkedd

Isaac’s mouth dropped open the moment he spotted us at the entrance of the Adventurer’s Guild.
“Eh? Eh? Eh? Didn’t you just leave for your mission this morning?   Wait. Did you fail?! Aaahh!! What should we do!!??” 
“Ahem, we have defeated the Tyrant Forest Python.” I cut in quickly before further panic could set in.
“I- is this true?”  Isaac-san’s eyes were very wide. “If you’ve failed, you can say so!”
“I’m telling you, we didn’t fail.”
“No, I want to believe you, but-” 
Fer suddenly interrupted, “Hey, can I bite this rude little man?”
“”Ou! Bite him! How dare he look down on us!””  Dora-chan snapped.
“No, you cannot. No biting. Dora-chan, stop instigating, Fer,” I scolded them firmly.   “Hii!!” Isaac dashed behind me. “M-mukouda-san, i-i-is the Fenrir g-going to b-bite m-me?”
“Fer, stop with those weird remarks. Don’t you want your lunch? Let’s finish this quickly so we can have our lunch.”
“Mu, fine, let’s finish this quickly.”
“Ahem, Isaac-san. I have the Tyrant Forest Python with me. Could you guide me to the warehouse? It’s quite a large monster.”
“Ah? Oh, ah! Yes, yes! Let’s go.”

The Tyrant Forest Python was kept inside Fer the Magic Bag around Fer’s neck. From the lack of comments from the people in the Adventurer’s Guild despite the many stares, I’m guessing that they had been informed that I would be visiting with a Fenrir. Still, since this was a country I had never been to, despite its good reputation, I thought I should keep as many of my abilities under wraps and not openly show off my [Item Box].
Hence why the Tyrant Forest Python was inside a Magic Bag.
Even so, when the giant snake was taken out of the bag, Isaac-san’s mouth fell open wide for the second time in so many minutes.
“As per the mission request, we have subjugated the Tyrant Forest Python,” I said in my most this-is-all-normal voice.
“Naturally, there is no way we will fail a request like this,”  Fer snorted. Dora-chan was zipping around the room going, “”That’s right, that’s right, that’s right!”” 
“Ahem, if you would like to check the monster…” I hinted.
Isaac finally closed his mouth.  Only to open it later to gush, “Oh! Oh! Oh! Thank you! Thankyou thankyou thankyou!! Thanks to Mukouda-san, the upper level people won’t get on my back for this!!”
Ah, the tears and snot are… not very becoming of a middle-management boss. I get a weird kind of pressure seeing him like this…
“Uh, if we could settle the remuneration…”  prodding him to do his job should work. As expected, when reminded that he still had to perform some proper business transactions, Isaac-san quickly recovered himself to say, “Ah, apologies. I was overwhelmed just now. For the subjugation mission which, on top of the high-level difficulty, has an urgency tag on it the reward would be 230 gold. For the materials, do you wish to sell everything to the guild?”
Hmm, the materials…  Well, since our party is only interested in meat, let’s sell everything… Oh, but 
“I wish to keep a third of the skin,” I said, it would be a nice souvenir for Lambert-san.
After all, he was the one who takes care of the sale of Divine Medicine, Hair Power for me.  Since I’m always losing to him when it comes to bargaining (take more money Lambert-san!) I can only win by giving him rare and precious gifts.
Moreover, as a leather works merchant he, of all people, should appreciate something like a Tyrant Forest Python skin. “Yes, very well, a third of the hide and the Guild buys everything else from your goodself,” said Isaac-san happily. “The python is rather large and will only be properly processed on the day after tomorrow.” 
“Oh no, in that case, I shall have to stay in this city for two days…” 
“”What was that?!””
“Ahem, I’m afraid there’s nothing we can do about it,” I said, doing my best not to sound too happy. “It’s such a big monster that it takes time to dismantle, right? Isaac-san?”
“Ah, oh, yes, er…”
Isaac-san shrank back from Fer’s glaring.
“ Stop that, Fer. Didn’t I say that the dungeon won’t go anywhere?”
“Humph! You just don’t want to go to the dungeon.” “”That’s right! That’s right! That’s right!”” Dora-chan was flying around in circles again.
“Ahem, that’s not it… oh, speaking of which, there’s something I’d like to ask you, Isaac-san.”
“Gunununu, you’re deliberately switching topics!”
““Liar! Liar! Liar!””
Shut up, you guys.
