The next morning, I woke up to Ash licking my face. Listlessly, I woke up and washed my face with cold water. Last night, I had put the water dagger into a barrel and the barrel was properly filled with water in the morning.
Okay, looks good.
After taking care of Rocinante (my horse) and the chickens, I did my daily training. From sword swinging, target shooting and foot sword kicking. I also practiced my other skills, ‘bash’ and ‘charge arrow’.
After sweating a little, I had breakfast. Today I had a light breakfast which consisted of fried egg, smoked meat and bread.
A deer and a rabbit were caught in the paralysis trap. After draining the blood, I dismembered the meat. I decided to have grilled rabbit for lunch. I didn’t want to waste the leftover deer meat so I would make smoked meat and dried meat out of it.
I was smoking the meat while occasionally sipping on an alcohol when Juno and Margo came over donned in full armor. The three of us then had smoked fish while drinking a bit.
You two, aren’t you guys going to go hunting monsters?
After I gave dual potion(small) and paruna antidote to Juno, he set out to hunt. Margo was donned in his battle armor but when he realized I had a bathtub full of water, he went to start the fire for the bathtub instead.
Just… Do whatever you want.
Perhaps as a thanks for the smoked meat and the bath, Margo pointed at the wagon filled with femto stones, inferior iron ingots and pig iron ingots with his finger. He motioned for me to take them and so, I decided that I’d use his gift without any reservation.
I went to the forest together with Margo to gather materials. Ash was coming with us too. We did not encounter any strong monster like the cockatrice or the hellhound when we were in the forest. Instead, we were confronted by a bear monster called ‘gray bear’ and ‘kobold warrior’. Since I was coming with Margo, we fought together with me shooting paralysis arrows at the enemy and Margo finishing it off with his battle axe.
We threw the monsters we had defeated into the wagon. We also gathered femto stones, fire stones, gleene paralysis grass and delune fruit before we decided to call it a day.
When we got home, I planted the gleene paralysis grass in the field and stored the other things we had gathered in the blacksmith workshop. As for the monster, Margo would be the one to handle the dismantling and the subjugation report.
Margo heated the water in the tub with firewood and went into the bath with a splash since he was feeling tired before he returned to the town.
After getting out of the bath, I checked my guild card and saw that my guild points had increased by 28. It seemed Margo had finished with his subjugation report without any problem.
I had recently purchased a ‘lantern’ from Sarasa. A magic device with a monster core in it to produce light. I took out the monster core that worked as the lantern’s source of power to turn the light off. Then I went to sleep together with Ash.
T/N: At this point MC’s home is like a vacation house for Juno, Sarasa and especially Margo.
