The sky looked cloudy when I woke up in the morning. I splashed my face with cold water and brushed my teeth. Then I fed Ash, the chickens and Rocinante (my horse) before I started my daily training.
Swordsmanship, martial arts, marksmanship, shield arts and wind. I practiced all of them and then I went to have breakfast.
Today, I planned on improving my foot equipment for ‘moonsault kick’.
Without wasting any time, I lit up the furnace in the blacksmith workshop. I melt pig iron ingots so I could use it to reinforce a part of my boots. I added the processed pig iron ingot on the part of the boots that would hit the enemy when I used my kick skills and put the boots on to test it out.
Yeah, the center of gravity is pretty bad. I’m a little unbalanced. It’d be bad if I can’t move properly at the most crucial times.
Once again, I removed the metal part from the boots and reworked it. After repeating the same process several times, I was able to more or less complete it.
After finishing a late lunch, I equipped my armor and went to practice ‘moonsault kick’ on a wooden target.
I unleashed a ‘moonsault kick’ on the target and the target was pulverized from the impact.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Moonsault Kick level 2.』
I might be able to use this skill while attacking to create a distance between me and the enemy. The compatibility between this skill and ‘fortress’ was good too. The result of today’s practice was really satisfactory.
Now then, the cloud was starting to get thinner and thinner. It seemed today we wouldn’t have any rain. I decided to utilize yesterday’s bath to wash off the sweat from my body. I lit up the firewood and waited for the bathwater to become hot.
After a quick bath, I grilled the deer meat I had bought in the city and washed it down with a glass of ale.
Even though we had already taken a bath together, Ash’s hair became sticky again because of his drool. He was sitting up, waiting for me.
While thinking that I would need to clean his drooled hair later, I cut up part of my deer meat and put it on Ash’s plate. I told him to wait and to do the ‘hand’ command before I allowed him to eat. He then started chomping down on the food vigorously.
Let’s go to bed early today.
I brushed my teeth and then wiped Ash’s drooled hair with a wet towel. With the sound of the music performed by the insects, I went into the bed together with Ash and fell asleep just like that.
T/N: The money MC prepared for the guild really works wonders. I don’t see MC getting ambushed anymore these days.
