Chapter 132


I woke up early in the morning and I could feel the weather was starting to get much colder. I pushed the blanket away but it was too cold after all so I went back to sleep again. When I finally got out of the bed, I filled the newly installed fireplace in my bedroom-slash-living room and then I lit up the fire with a fire dagger. 

The gentle warmth penetrated the room slowly and gently. The wooden floor made the room feel even warmer. I brought the stump chair and placed it in front of the fireplace. Then, I sat in front of the fire and watched it with an empty mind.

I washed my face and brushed my teeth with cold water in a bucket.

I don’t want to leave the house….

I, who was originally an indoor type of person, suddenly started going around…

I put on the dark coloured clothes that I got from Yurina-san. The clothes were pretty thick. Since the weather was going to get colder from now on, I could use these thick clothes to dress warmly. I felt truly grateful for the present I received from her. 

Anyway for the time being, I went on to feed Ash and the other animals. As for myself, I had bread with dried meat and fruit juice. I ate my meal in my own cabin with my back against the fireplace. 

I’m going to spend the rest of the day lazing around. 

I decided to practice light and ice magic while sitting on top of the stump chair since those two magic could be practiced inside of the house without any potential trouble. I could finally gradually move the ball of light in any direction I wanted. As for the ice, of course I could put it in any beverages but I could also use it while serving raw food like chicken sashimi by putting the ice underneath the food. 

I placed the smoking kit outside of the house to make smoked egg, cheese and venison. 


While yawning, I returned to my warm house. I looked at the time with my watch to punctually measure the time needed for smoking. As for the firewood, I had chopped a lot of firewood lately so I had a good amount of firewood stocked. I still needed to stockpile a lot of food and liquor for the upcoming winter though. 

Also, I needed something like a coat for when it started snowing. Sarasa’s store must have clothes made from fur. 

But today, I would spend the rest of the day by the fireplace. I had already decided to do that after all. This kind of time was necessary for me. The kind of time where I did nothing and just let my mind go blank.

If I had to think about other people everyday, I felt like my head was going to explode. Even though I said I already planned on doing nothing, I still wrote on paper. Collecting the thoughts in my mind, I wrote things like poems and folktales that came to my mind. 

Of course I also wrote about practical things like the result of appraisal from plants, animals and monsters. I wrote it right here and there and then I would sort each page according to their category later on. 

Currently, I was sorting the pages containing the description of monsters. The living room had enough light thanks to the light from the lantern and the fireplace. 


I made quite a lot of progress in my writing. Looking at the watch, I realized I had been working until it was pretty late. It must be proof that I was able to concentrate on my writing.

I immediately started having dinner. I had the newly finished smoked food along with fruit wine. 

Just to test it out, I tried making ice using magic and put it inside the fruit wine. The wine tasted so much better like this. This magic was really a good thing to have.

I slowly added more firewood to the fireplace. Ash was curled up comfortably beside the fireplace. Just like this, the warm, quiet and calm time passed by. Even if I spent my time selfishly like this, no one could criticize me. 

This is my most favorite and precious time.

    I would feel very relieved if you got your ice magic to the point of being able to flash-freeze your food to kill parasites, if you’re gonna keep eating raw meat, but I don’t think you would be eating in the way you have been if you understood anything about parasites or the methods to control them from the previous world, so it’s unlikely.

    It would be kind of cool to read an isekai survivalist tale in a tundra setting, though. I was born in Canada’s far north, so I have some special interest in that. Traditional diet of the Inuit people involved a lot of raw meat by necessity, particularly eating the liver to get certain nutrients that cooking will destroy and can’t otherwise be reliably sourced in that environment. In the first place, there’s not much plant life to start a fire, even if you want to. I didn’t look that deeply, but when I looked it up out of curiosity, they were apparently all riddled with parasites and just had to live with it. Although there are people that wish to reclaim their roots and culture that were badly damaged by colonialism, and they might be willing to deal with some parasites, bioaccumulation of heavy metals from pollution has made the livers of large marine organisms no different from poison. It would be kind of cool to see someone trying to use magic to make the most of such a living environment in a pristine world.
