I arrived at the adventurers’ guild. I conveyed to Dan using gestures that I wanted to learn bow skill. He took my guild card and deducted 100 points from it.
After that, I was taken to the dojo in the guild. Dan was saying something to Kai-sensei then Kai-sensei said ‘understood’ as he looked at me. Then, Kai-sensei threw a practice bow to me.
Kai-sensei motioned for me to watch him and he quickly released the arrow.
The arrow pierced through the target. How to say it… If ‘charge arrow’ was an attack that damaged the surface, this technique I just saw now was focused on penetrating one spot.
Kai-sensei instructed me using gestures and motioned for me to try it out. I imitated Kai-sensei’s motion and gave it several tries.
Although I couldn’t really penetrate through the target, the arrow still went pretty deep.

Apparently it was a success. I thanked Kai-sensei and left the dojo.
I stopped by Margo’s shop and delivered several water daggers. Then, I also bought a brand new bow because my old one was already tattered from being used too much. I bought a pretty good product.
Using gestures, Margo invited me for a drink and was about to close his shop but I refused because I couldn’t just keep on drinking everyday.
Your store is going to go under if you keep on doing this, you know.
I went to the adventurers’ guild again and deposited 20 gold coins for the subjugation reward. The target was the monsters in the forest and the river that I couldn’t defeat on my own.
I didn’t know what kind of monsters were there so I used the combination of both gestures and magic board to ask Dan to put out a subjugation request for the monsters other than the one I had subjugated.
I didn’t frequent the forest much and considering the dungeon in the forest, there must be a lot of other stronger monsters in the forest. Those kinds of monsters should be handled by a strong party of adventurers like the one that had defeated the serpent the other day.
Now then. I was starting to get hungry so I decided to go home. I placed Ash onto the wagon and went home.
The next day, I started adding ‘sharpshoot’ training in my bow regimen. I used the skill against a wooden target and I could hit the target from a farther distance than I normally could. Apparently this skill also had the effect of increasing the range of my shooting.
I felt like consuming a potion would be a waste so I just munched on berzin herb instead to restore my vitality. I continued to practice ‘sharpshoot’.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Sharpshoot level 2.』
I was able to reach level 2 of the skill pretty quickly. Since this was a piercing type of skill, maybe this skill could make me inflict debuff status toward the enemy easier. This skill might be my winning skill.
Ash, that I had left because I was focusing on my training, was chasing a yellow butterfly nearby. He was jumping and running playfully with the butterfly.
T/N: What a rather peaceful day. But… Is it what people call ‘the calm before storm’?
