After we settled the discussion regarding the distribution of the material from the cockatrice, I came up with an idea for a little experiment. Because this cockatrice’s poison sac I had, could be used to develop a new poison.
Margo and Juno decided to leave first because they had something they needed to do while Sarasa, maybe because she sensed something disturbing from me, she said that she’d stay around.
The experiment I wanted to do was a simple one. I just wanted to know what kind of poison I could get if I boiled gebal poison together with the cockatrice’s poison sac. Just as simple as that.
In the boiling pot, I gently simmered badol and gadol poisonous plants along with the cockatrice’s poison sac. I was concentrating on stirring them together.
After letting the mixture boil down to a certain extent, the leftover liquid in the pot glowed. Gebal poison had a light purple color but this liquid had a deep reddish color. It seemed the poison was done. I tried to use appraisal but it only showed ‘poison’.
To be honest, I was really, really terrified but if I didn’t try it, I wouldn’t be able to know what this poison could be used for.
Somehow able to sense what I was about to do, Sarasa widened her eyes and grabbed my arm to try to stop me. But, I already prepared my resolve. With paruna detoxification potion, a potion that could resist the cockatrice’s petrification attack, I licked a drop of that poison.
Immediately, I felt like my head was struck by lightning. My vision started to spin. I quickly gulped down the paruna detoxification potion but then, I still fell unconscious right here and there.
The moment I woke up, I had a very terrible headache.
Sarasa was looking at me, looking worried. She helped me to sit up and gave me water.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Poison Resistance level 4. 』
Sarasa looked like she had a pair of demon horns growing from her head.
I’m really sorry.
Once again, I gulped down the paruna detoxification potion and then, I could finally feel my head all refreshed.
Ah… Which reminds me, this is not the time to feel relieved. I was almost knocking on the death’s door again…
As usual, I appraised the poison.
【Donur Poison: Effectivity (big). Poison Resistance level 7 or higher is required to resist this poison.】
The effectiveness of gebal poison was (medium) so this poison was more potent than gebal poison. At any rate, if I use this new poison to coat my arrowhead, I could take down my enemy easier than before.
Apparently I had been unconscious for a whole day. If Sarasa weren’t here to look after me, I’d be in great danger. Donur poison was a very dangerous poison.
After that, I looked at my adventurer guild card. My points had risen from 51 to 95. I didn’t really exactly know how it worked but it seemed Margo had reported about the cockatrice and we each got our points.
After confirming that I was safe, Sarasa went back to town.
T/N: Sarasa is so niceee! She had to close her shop for 2 days just to take care of our MC
