Chapter 134 – Rumor of the Counterfeit Bills (Part 1)

The warm sunshine of winter was shining in the room. This afternoon was clear and sunny and someone was snarling in the Garter’s company.

“Why we can’t find out the source of counterfeit bills!”

Gettan beat his fist on the table and snarled to the president of Garter’s company, Garter, who bowed his head.

Original translation from wangmamaread.

“We… we found that it comes from the Lawless City and the Lawless City is very dangerous so we lost connection with our spies in succession.”

The president of the company, Garter, tried to explain for himself and his knees were knocking together.

Garter’s company belonged to Garter but its real boss was Gettan.

Gettan needed a lot of money to raise his status in the cult. However, he was famous for his identity of beastman so it was dangerous for Gettan to own the company by himself.

Then Gettan set up a company called Garter. Everyone believed that the joint head of the Great Commerce Association was Garter, but in fact, it was Gettan.

“Do you know we have run out of time!?  There are already all sorts of rumors about the counterfeit bills going around the capital.”

“Emmm… There are already many people who have exchanged their bills to money.”

“Shit! It’s too early.”

“This morning so many bills were exchanged at once and the exchange rate is accelerating…!  Other managers of the Great Commerce Association have made claims and they suggested that we close the bank in order to stop people from changing bills to money.”

“Idiot! Shut up! Once we close the bank then rumors will be spread around the capital. We will be surrounded by masses!!”

“B…but we don’t have enough money…!”

“I see!!”

Gettan beat his fist on the table once again.


The thick wooden table was torn into pieces which flew out and hurt Garter’s face leaving a small wound.

Gettan was smiling with teeth and narrowed his eyes, looking at Garter.

“…You said that there were a lot of people exchanging money this morning.”

“Y… yes.”

“It is too early and I think someone incites people to do this. Maybe he knows something about counterfeit bills. You must find him out……”


Garter left and Gettan covered his eyes with his hands.

He felt so painful as if his lost eye was coming back. Every time he felt painful, something that was connected with his past would happen.

“It won’t be… I think it’s impossible…”

Gettan kept covering his eyes and immersed himself in his memories.

This site is the deity’s grace. After returning from immortal world, tutorial is too hard now there is even the abandoned Japanese novel.

Personally, I will suggest translating the next arc as this one has been translated already but not edited. Thanks for the chapter.

Somehow, I got a hunch that it was our MC who was responsible for gettan’s missing eyes.
