o you if I can.”

“No, it’s enough that I was able to help.”

“I want to do this for you.”

 

I knew that she would refuse once, and she now spoke in a whisper.

 

“…If you say so, I will tell you later.”

 

I nodded and looked around.
I thought there would be other items I could reinforce using the material from her body and thought I had heard of an armor made of Yggdrasill’s roots.
It was definitely worth a try later.
I used the rest of my points to reinforce the longsword and came out of the item shop happy.
Jung Hayeon had disappeared first as her job was over, and now I was also back to my tent.
I looked over the weapons in satisfaction and went out of the tent with my map.

I went to thank Jung Hayeon in her tent and rode Ibar to go out.
The weather was cloudy.
The map did not help me locate Park Hyeri, but I could guess when she would appear.

She would appear soon, according to the data, and it was highly probable she would come out in the East again.

The important thing was to scout the area, and I left my tribe with my newly reinforced items.

“Thank you.”

“I also learned something.”

 

Ragia nodded to Gark, who was the second strongest in the Blood Dagger clan.
His ability was to hide, and he was stronger than her in every way.

 

“I did not think our subleader would ask me for help.”

“It was necessary.”

 

Ragia’s ability was intuition, which was quite an ambiguous skill.
She could only guess where an attack would come next or whether something would bring a positive or negative result.
It was pure guesswork that just enabled her to survive.

While she had been able to guess a bit where Gark was a little, she still lost by a wide margin.
She could only block his attacks, and while she had not imagined she would win against him, Ragia looked down at herself as she lowered her dagger.

 

“You’re dissatisfied.”

“I cannot abide this feeling of getting nowhere.”

“That was why you asked for this mock fight.
You’re strong, and you work hard.
You will bring results.”

 

Ragia did not say anything, as Halfblade was saying only the right things.
She had thought of herself at a similar level with him when first coming to this clan, but now the gap was too deep.
She had not been lazy but had been left behind.

 

“Do not rush.
Blood Dagger does not want you to be a warrior.”

“……”

“I am stronger than you, Ragia, but I am insufficient to become the subleader.
That was why I lost my name.
Blood Dagger sees accurately, and you have been chosen by him.
It is honorable and respectable to have been so.”

 

Ragia still felt bitter, as she knew that she was shallow.
She obsessed over small achievements and cried over little things.
If she had been stronger, she would not have run from the trials nor break up her clan.
She knew her limits and did not even dare to say so.

 

“But…”

“If you cannot trust yourself, trust Blood Dagger, who has chosen you.”

 

[Don’t belive in you, believe in the me that believes in you]

 

Gark was stable and straight, and he reminded Ragia of her shallowness even more.

 

“Thank you for your…advice.”

“Anytime.”

Ragia stood still as Gark walked away.
She knew she could not blindly believe Blood Dagger, and she now slowly walked up to Blood Dagger’s tent.

She only wanted to know why he had chosen her.
The ogre protecting the tent spoke to her as she came near.

 

“He is out.”

Ragia nodded as she went in, as she had prior consent to enter.
She did not see his weapons nor the map.
Ragia could guess that he was searching for that human and felt a headache coming on.
She felt like he did not trust her.
It was then she felt a presence outside.

 

“Ragia, what is it?”

It was Blood Dagger’s voice.
