The two of them came here with a wagon so they were able to bring the materials from the ash wolf back with them. We had been drinking endlessly so I had thought they were going to stay over the night.
Now then. I still have some spare time. Should I do some blacksmithing instead?
First, I stored the ash wolf’s fang in the storage area of the blacksmith workshop. Then I planned on using the inferior iron I had bought to make a drum shape for my bathtub. I lit the fire in the furnace and melted the inferior iron ingots.
I tried to give it a go but making a circular shape was difficult to do. I immediately decided to not get fixated on a drum shape and just went on with a rectangular shape. With this, I only needed to make the parts and then welded them together after.

The sound of me hitting the metal with a hammer echoed.
Then, I finally completed it. A rectangular, reasonably sized metal box. Or rather, my bathtub.

I arranged stones that were roughly the same size according to the size of the tub then I placed the tub on top of the stones. Then I made a wooden plate for the bottom and a cover for boiling the water.
With this, my goemon bath was finished.
The problem was water but there was a watering hole in the place where I found the battle bull. I could go there with a wagon in order to fetch water for my bathtub then.
After finishing all the preparations, I wiped my sweat with a wet towel. I held the wolf pup in my arms and went to sleep together in my futon.
By the way, I had been thinking of a name for the wolf pup but in the end, I decided to just name him ‘Ash’. It seemed the wolf pup liked that name too. When I called him ‘Ash’, the pup would bark in return while wagging his tail excitedly.
T/N: So much work to do just for a bath… Also, I like how our MC is getting closer with the pup. Emotional progress! (≧◡≦) ♡
