After taking care of the hangover Margo and the other two, I went to do my daily morning routine at my own pace. Those three, they must be still laying sick up until the afternoon like the japanese kanji for river (川).
I fed and groomed Rocinante then I fed the chickens and then collected their eggs. After I was finished taking care of the animals, I continued on with my morning practice.
Yeah, my kick was looking good today.
『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Foot Sword Kick level 5.
I wiped my sweat off with a towel and went to prepare breakfast.
I made a soup using dried meat along with mylene antidote herb and irene herb since it seemed those herbs were good for a hangover. After all, alcohol was more or less a poison too. I guess mylene antidote herb should be effective for a hangover.
I brought water, bread and the soup to the three of them and had them eat it. Then, their pale faces became completely clear. I see. From now on I could avoid this disaster by serving them soup made from mylene antidote herb and irene herb after we had a drinking party. Maybe I should call this soup the ‘closure soup’. I was able to learn a new thing from this.
The three of them returned in a wagon to the town of Resta.
Yeah. Since it had been a while, I wanted to have a bath today. I was getting bothered by the smell of my body since I had been making smoked food and had a drinking party yesterday. I put dried meat, water dagger flask and bread in the pocket of my mantle. Then I set out to the river.
I shared the dried meat appropriately with Ash as we rode our wagon to the river.
There was a merman in the river so I approached it cautiously with my shield up and when I was close enough, I brought it down by unleashing ‘foot sword kick’ at its head. I guess today I’d be having sauteed merman’s meat, which I cooked in the same way as I cooked a white fleshed fish. I filled the bathtub with water and put the merman onto the wagon to carry it home with me.
I started to disassemble the merman. I peeled the scale using a dagger and cut the meat apart. I put the tail aside since I could use this tail to report the subjugation of the merman to the guild so I could get more guild points.
I started cooking for dinner while waiting for the water in the bath to become hot enough. Today dinner was sauteed merman’s meat in white flesh fish style garnished with rumi fruit.
I jumped into the bath with a splash.
I could feel that I had exerted my muscles quite a bit today. Bathtub sure was nice. My heart felt purified.
I looked up to the sky and saw the sky was filled with stars and a blue moon while the crackling sound of the wood burning could be heard from below.
This is the best.
Ash also seemed to like taking a hot bath. I washed his teeth with a toothbrush while we were at it.
After getting out of the bath, I went to the table set I had made myself. There was sauteed merman’s meat and bargo fruit wine ready on the table. I sat down and enjoyed the food with all my heart.
Taking a hot bath and enjoying delicious food in the great outdoor. I really couldn’t ask for any luxurious life than this.
Ash was sitting down while looking up at me. Only during mealtime did Ash become a very good boy.
You, didn’t you already eat a lot of dried meat before?
I teasingly put a glass of fruit wine near Ash’s mouth but he turned his face away while huffing at me. I guess he didn’t like the smell of alcohol. It couldn’t be helped, I guess I had to share my sauteed fish a bit with him.
With the glittering starlights shining from above, I tidied up the tableware and decided that I wanted to stare at the night sky for a while.
I sat on the stump and just sat there, doing nothing as I stared at the night sky for about 30 minutes. After that, I started to yawn. Feeling sleepy, I decided to go to bed.
T/N: Another peaceful day! Ash is so spoiled~ He must be plump because our MC spoils him with good food everyday ( ⸝⸝´꒳`⸝⸝)
