Slowly becoming famous thanks to saving the previous case with glamour and success, Hildibrand is returning for the mysterious case of more lost weapons but more importantly of a really important vase!
Offering his services to the merchant lady like a boss, the merchant lady is not very amused about Hildibrand’s professional appearance. Thankfully, I could convince the lady to let Hildibrand handle to case, as I am now Little Investigator Riiko!
But what was that?! Another Investigator showed up – and man, was he handsome!
He was called Briananteaux or something like that – nobody can ever remember Elezen names anyway.
I decided to call him Brian.
He quickly charmed the merchant lady which did not please Hildibrand at all.
Another character appeared. The Merchant’s daughter Maria. She admitted that it was her who lost the vase on her way to return to her mother with the vase.
Hildibrand could not be angry or ignore a maiden in need.
We directly proceeded to where Maria had dropped the vase.
The vase had fallen off a bridge. Into a small river.
And some shady samurai was standing right on top of the shards of the vase.
Hildibrand’s obvious mastermind conclusion was, that the shady samurai had nothing to do with the broken vase and there was no way he accidentally stepped on it after the vase had fallen into the water. No way.
This is how we became friends with the samurai Gilgamesh and his best friend, the Green Chicken Enkidu.
Following strange leads, Hildibrand followed the path of death.
I was still not sure what this all was about, but he told us, we were close to getting the vase repaired.
And that he had to dance a super rudiculous dance.
As Hildibrand was out of his training, he taught me the dance and made me dance…
So I danced in front of the dead monsters…
And then, he ascended from the highest mountains!
Hildibrand’s face went all pale.
His instincts told him to run while it was not yet too late.
Hildibrand had run far, as the panty-man landed on the ground.
Just that it wasn’t far enough. With the speed of lightning, the old panty-man rushed after Hildibrand!
To stop Hildibrand, the old dude smashed him into the ground and then proceeded to dance Hildibrand’s dance! O_O;
Turns out, the old panty-man was Hildibrand’s father and the best Goldsmith in the world.
From the shards, he created a glittering vase that looked completely different from the original one! Such a pro!
While Maria was extremely worried that her mother would dislike the newly restored vase, when the panty-man showed up, she directly fell in love with the piece of art.
Panty-man seemed to be well-known among the merchants o.ô
And thus, the case of the stolen vase had been solved.
Another success in Hildibrand’s marvelous success stories!
