“Now then, what should I do now?”
I muttered to myself while glancing at my watch.
As of now, my sleeping arrangement consisted of cardboards on top of the floor. At the very least, I should have a wooden plank covering my sleeping area. I could use the woods I had bought earlier from Sarasa.
I cut the wood into the right size using a saw and used a plane to smooth it out. It was really the epitome of a DIY woodworking project on the weekend.
Somehow, I was able to cover the living space part of the shed with wood. While I was at it, I also made a partition to separate the living space with the chicken area and then, I swept the area with a broom.
This type of woodworking was endless. Just when I felt like I had done everything and wanted to have a drink, my usual habit kicked in.
I kept on reasoning with myself.
“It’s definitely not safe yet.”
I denied myself from my well deserved break. My reasoning always won and I ended up starting another blacksmithing work.
I hit the femto stone and flame stone into small pieces and then mixed the two powder together to create flame abrasive materials. I wanted to test if I could give fire attributes to a shortsword made from pig iron now that my blacksmith had reached level 2.
After polishing the shortsword with flame abrasive material for 20 minutes, the blade finally glowed in thin red light.
I appraised the shortsword.
【Fire Sword: A medium grade sword made from pig iron. A sword with fire attribute.】
CLINK CLINK CLINK
Suddenly, the naruko I installed in the shed made a noise. My tension rose up. With a weapon in hand, I slightly opened the door, surveying the surrounding area. There, I caught a glimpse of a blue wolf. It seemed my enemy was also standing guard, waiting to see what was about to happen next.
I put my equipment on and tried to get out by erasing my presence as much as possible. There were 3 wolves who appeared to be 2 meters big. One of the wolves had fallen into my pitfall trap. I quickly shot a poisoned arrow to kill it.
Only 2 remained.
While keeping my distance, I shot out my arrows. I managed to graze one but it wasn’t enough to kill it instantly. With my back against the wall of the shed, I readied my sword and shield.
The remaining wolves flanked me from two sides, jumping at me simultaneously. I bent down and blocked one with my shield and stabbed the other wolf with my fire sword.
The wounded blue wolf fell rolling on the ground.
While protecting myself with a shield, I pushed the other one into a pitfall trap. The moment the wolf fell into the trap, I thrusted my sword into its head to finish it off.
After that, I faced the wolf who was still rolling on the ground.
The wolf roared. Blood was dripping from the wound on its torso that I had caused when I stabbed the wolf with my sword. I took a careful aim at the wolf who was unable to move much and killed it with a poisoned arrow.
I had won the fight against 3 wolves.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda went from level 6 to level 7.
T/N: 3 wolves! (°ロ°) MC really can’t have a break in this world…. But I guess he’s living in the countryside because he wants to keep his human interaction to the minimum… He chose the risk of being ambushed over living in a society… I really need to praise MC for his determination (￣□￣；)
