I slept extremely well last night. I could even say my physical condition had completely recovered. After feeding the animals, I went to have morning training together with Juno who had just woken up. I immediately showed the ‘moonsault kick’ I had just learned.
I prepared my stance by activating ‘fortress’ with a shield in my hand while crouching and then I immediately followed up with ‘moonsault kick’.
The wooden target got blown away and I was able to create a distance behind me. If I became proficient at using this skill, this skill might prove to be pretty useful in certain scenarios. As for the rest of our training, I practiced mock battles with Juno.
Since I couldn’t practice due to falling sick, I was pretty out of tune.
After a good workout, we wiped our body with a towel and I started preparing a light breakfast. After breakfast, we decided to go to Resta. I needed to go shopping for food since my stock was running low and I also wanted to greet the doctor there.
I tied Rocinante (my horse) to Juno’s wagon and then I went to town together with Juno.
First, I asked Juno to guide me to the doctor’s place. Apparently the doctor’s name was Kishuu-sensei.
I had prepared quite a bit of food as a gift for him along with alcohol and paruna detoxifying potions. He showed a particular reaction at the potions. Paruna detoxifying potion could be used to treat pertification. Since he knew about this, that means he was a real doctor.
The next time I got sick, I guess I could go to him to get treated.
I parted ways with Juno when we arrived at the main road. I went to Sarasa’s store to buy some food and alcohol.
After leaving Sarasa’s store, I somehow found myself walking to Margo’s store. Even though I didn’t have anything in particular to do here.
When I entered his store, I could hear the sound of a blacksmithing job resounding from inside his workshop. I didn’t want to disturb him so I placed a small cask of Margo’s favorite ale on the table and left his place.
Now then. Since I’ve finished with my business I guess it’s time for me to head home.
“Ash, let’s go home.”
It seemed Ash was happy since he was wagging his tail excitedly.
I left Resta.
I defeated a merman that I encountered while fetching water in the river with ‘foot sword kick’ and so, I decided to saute the merman’s meat for dinner. I lit up the firewood to heat the water for my bath.
The crackling and snapping sound of the firewood felt pleasant to hear. I seasoned the sauteed merman’s meat with garlic, salt and bargo fruit wine. I cooked a bigger portion so I could share it with Ash.
I served the sauteed merman’s meat on a plate with irene herbs and other leafy vegetables. I also filled a glass with bargo fruit wine and laid them all on the table.
Soon, the bath’s water was ready for me to use. I jumped into the bath with a splash.
My muscles that had become stiff due to recovering these past few days, slowly loosened. The hot water felt not half bad. Ash also seemed to be having a good time. Since we were already taking a bath, I took this opportunity to brush his dirty tooth with a toothbrush.
I could hear the quiet crackling and snapping from the firewood along with the rustling sound of the trees and the sound of the birds and insects.
It was a quiet night with beautiful stars in the sky.
I got out of the bath, wiped both my body and Ash’s body with a towel and used ‘wind’ to blow dry Ash’s hair. We then went to the table to have dinner.
I ate the sauteed merman’s meat and gulped down the alcohol.
Having a glass of alcohol right after you got out of the bath felt exceptional.
Ash was also chomping down on his sauteed meat.
Hey, don’t leave the vegetables out.
While leaning against the table, I kept on drinking bargo fruit wine while staring blankly at the starry sky.
My throat felt hot and it was at this time that I truly felt I was still alive.
I yawned out loud then I went to brush my teeth and then crawled under the cover with Ash in my arms.
I turned the light off from the lantern and closed my eyes.
T/N: MC! I’m glad you’re still alive too! I hope our MC will find someone soon. No, wait. Our MC needs a house first 눈‸눈
