Yoruko answers with a very soft voice. I held my breath to watch this petite female

player, and she slowly shook her head violently.

"No, that's not it. I have proof…the killer who killed the leader felt that the items that

were dropped were worthless and left them at the scene. Luckily, a player who knew the

leader's name found these items and sent the leftover items over to the guild home.

That's why we used this place…used this tombstone as the grave. At that time, we put

her sword at this tombstone, and let it disappear as the durability wore out. Bu…but

that's not all. I even buried something…something she left behind that I never

mentioned before."

After saying that, Yoruko turn around and knelt down beside the small tombstone and

started digging with her hand. As everyone watched silently, Yoruko finally stood up

and handed that thing over for everyone to see. It was a glossy silver box that shone

under the moonlight.

"Ah…«Eternal Storage Trinket»…!"

It was just like what Asuna said. What Yoruko took out was a storage box that only a

master-class craftsman could make to preserve the durability of an item. It was a cuboid

that was 10cm in size, so it couldn't store large items. However, it can store a few things

that were the size of accessories. Even when placed in the wilderness, the durability will

never drop, and the items wouldn't disappear on their own.

Yoruko reached out her left hand and opened the lid of the silver box.

What lay on the white silk were two glowing rings.

Yoruko first took out one of them—a larger silver ring. At the flat surface of the ring,

there was a mark of an apple on it.

"This is the thing the leader always equipped on the middle finger of her right hand, the

seal of the «Golden Apple». I kept the same thing too, so you can tell once you compare


After putting it back, she took out another one —— a long and thin ring that glowed

"And this —— is the wedding ring she would always wear on the left ring finger, you

know, Grimlock! Your name is clearly engraved on it too!...These two rings were at the




At the end, she was screaming hysterically in tears.

A large number of tears flowed down Yoruko's cheeks, and she reaches her hand with

the golden ring out for Grimlock to see.

At this moment, nobody spoke up. Caynz, Schmitt, Asuna and me could only watch

both of them in their confrontation with our eyes widened.

The tall and thin craftsman's lips still remain curled as he remained there for more than

10 seconds. Finally, the lips trembled slightly before opening up.

"That ring…I think it was during the funeral when you asked me, Yoruko, whether I

wanted to take Griselda's wedding ring. I answered that we should let it disappear

naturally with the sword. If at that moment…I said I wanted to take it away…"

Grimlock lowered his head deeply and buried his face inside the hat, collapsing onto the

ground as if the strings controlling his tall body snapped.

Yoruko put the golden ring back into the box, closed the lid and held the box tightly

before looking up at the sky with her twisted teary face, saying with a voice that had

lost its sharpness.

"…Why…just why, Grimlock. Why, did you really want to snatch the ring to exchange

it for money, and kill the leader…your own wife, for the sake of that?"

"…Money? Did you say money?"

As he continued to kneel, Grimlock said with a hoarse voice, and then started laughing.

He raised his left hand, summoned the menu window, and after a short time of operating,

what appeared as an object was a leather bag that's just slightly big. Grimlock grabbed it

and threw it onto the ground. Amidst the heavy sound, there are some clear metallic

sounds in them. From this, I could deduce that the bag had a large amount of money.
