ーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーーー

17:30

I had spent quite a lot of time in the adventurers’ guild. I needed to quickly go to Sarasa’s place. Good thing Sarasa’s store was still open. I breathed a sigh of relief for now. 

“Good day.”

I greeted Sarasa. I laid out the various herbs, poisonous plants and eggs I had brought with me today. Freshness was the most crucial element for these items so Sarasa looked happy when I brought these to trade everyday. 

I was able to sell a bunch of irene herbs for 6 silver coins, a bunch of mylene antidote herbs for 5 silver coins, badol poisonous grass for 2 silver coins and 4 copper coins, a bundle of berzin magic herbs for 1 gold coin and 3 silver coins along with 20 herb chicken eggs for 4 silver coins. As for slime’s core, one core could fetch 2 copper coins and so by selling all of the slime’s core I had in hand, I received 4 silver coins in exchange. 

In total, I got 3 gold coins, 4 silver coins and 4 copper coins. By the way, apparently 10 silver coins was equal to 1 gold coin. 

As I was starting to be able to tell each plant apart, I became more efficient at harvesting them compared to when I first started. My efficiency in collecting them had increased considerably. Although I also could plant and grow them in front of my house,  I still always tried to aim to find a way to be more efficient. 

Since I was already here, I asked Sarasa for permission to take a look around her store. There was a line of magic devices and apparently the monster core I collected from defeating the slime was used as a source of power for these devices. Currently, there was a magic device that resembled a cooking stove in this store. This magic device also used those monster cores as a source of energy. 

There was a slot in this stove-like device to put the monster core in. Sarasa then showed me how to light up the fire in this device. 

I want it… But it’s so expensive. It cost 30 gold coins.

The monster core was similar to a battery in modern day Japan but a battery alone wouldn’t be able to create fire so technically it produced a different kind of energy compared to a battery. 

There were other things for sale here, for example this lantern. This lantern also used the monster core as a source of energy to create light. I couldn’t help but to wonder how the same source of energy could produce either light or fire.

I guess it must be because of ‘magic’?

You could also convert electricity into light or heat by using high resistance electrically-heated wire (if I remember correctly, it’s called “tungsten”). You could power up drier or make it hot enough for an oven so in a sense, it was not hard to see the similarity. At any rate it was something that didn’t exist in Japan so I couldn’t help but to become interested in it. 

And then, there were potions for sale. Irene herb potions that could restore HP were sold for 3 gold coins each. The liquid was stored in a container that looked similar to a test tube. I guess converting the herb into liquid form could make the body absorb the herb’s effect at a faster rate and you could just quickly drink it during battle. When you were in the middle of a battle, you wouldn’t be able to spare enough time to munch on some grass first. 

Although I still didn’t know for sure since I couldn’t use any magic, I think a potion was necessary to restore the vitality required to activate skill. Because after I used ‘Bash’ once, the wooden sword wouldn’t glow white again no matter how many times I tried. 

I believed the reason was simple. I already ran out of vitality. I also strangely felt lethargic. I should eat berzin magic herbs later on. 

I also asked Sarasa if she had a horse for transportation.

Of course.

She answered with a gesture and a drawing on the magic board. However, she said I at least needed 100 gold coins for a horse. It was not the amount I could get right now. 

In the end, I asked for a frying pan, a pot and a little bit of firewood. She gave me all of them free of charge. 

Sarasa is a really generous woman with a great sense of style….

Though if I said it out loud, I was sure she would be angry at me. 

Yeah, that’s right.

“Thank you, Sarasa. Can I really have these?”

I didn’t like to lend or borrow anything from someone but still, I couldn’t be suspicious of the woman who had been so kind to me. So, I decided to gratefully accept her kindness.

T/N: A magic stove is 30 gold coins… A horse is 100 gold coins… A potion is 3 gold coins… Our MC needs to become a diligent alchemist to afford a horse. (ง •̀_•́)ง

    The language part is annoyingly tedious for no reason, he’s got appraisal skill able to write but can’t speak makes no sense, he could just write it down lol…

    It’s pointless…just speak it already! Timeskip whatever, if they wanted a harder mode then they should’ve wiped it all and started naked as I’ve commented in earlier chapters … Survival mode ahoy!

      True. But it’s really amazing how far hand and body gesture can bring you. (´∀`* )
