Night came and my stomach started growling. I was feeling tired today so I only ate dried deer meat and irene herbs along with bargo fruit wine. The meal soaked into my body, which had grown tired from the battle today.
Margo and Sarasa would be coming tomorrow so I spent the rest of my day making potions.
While I was eating dinner, I was thinking of writing about the daily survival life I had the moment I came to this world. I wanted to leave a writing, a proof of my existence. Something like a will. Considering how often I get invaded by monsters, it seemed like my life wouldn’t be long.
The battle I had to go through everyday made me realize the most important thing I needed now was ‘safety’. However, even if that was the case, I still didn’t have any intention of becoming close with another person. I didn’t want to start a relationship that would end up becoming troublesome later on.
To choose solitude over safety… I must be really weird.
….. No. It’s not solitude. What I want is freedom.
And so, the night continued on.
Morning came. I woke up and started working. I washed my face and wiped my body with a towel. I took care of the chickens and went on to practice swordsmanship and marksmanship. The usual routine.
For breakfast, I cooked vegetables, herb chicken egg and dried meat on a frying pan and ate it together with rye bread.
I started making potions. Today, I wanted to try mixing berzin and mylene herbs together.
Then, I appraised the finished mixture.
【Paruna Detoxification Potion: Detoxififes medium level poison. Can recover MP (small).】
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Alchemy level 3.』
I successfully developed a new detoxification potion. Alchemy must have the same working principle as a blacksmith. I wish I could have a strategy guide book~
After that, Sarasa and Margo arrived with the worker. They were going to build a stable and a blacksmith workshop for me.

The sound of nails being hammered resounded through the plain. The worker had started working on the stable and the smithy.
They set up a furnace and an anvil in the blacksmith workshop and brought in a fire tong, hammer and coals. As for the stable, they prepared a watering trough, feeding trough and harness for the horse.
It took them two days to finish making the blacksmith workshop and the stable. While the workers were busy with the construction, Sarasa taught me how to use the horse’s harness and the basic horse riding techniques. Margo also taught me blacksmithing techniques like how to make inferior iron shoulder pads from inferior iron dagger’s materials.
I… Started to sense ‘something’ more than just a business relationship with Margo and Sarasa. I kept on hiding inside my shell, refusing their offer to live in town but despite that, Sarasa and Margo… They kept on knocking on my door gently.
As of now, I still failed to know the true identity of this ‘something’ I felt.
T/N: Could this be… Character development?! Wow, it’s pretty early. Chapter 26 and we can see the telltale of character development Σ(ﾟДﾟ|||)
