A Trading Company Employee Isekai Survival ~I’m Definitely Not Interacting With Other People~ Chapter 8

Chapter 8



The next day, after eating breakfast and tending to my chickens, I set out to explore donned in my leather armor, short sword and the carrier on my back. As usual, I hunted slimes and collected some plants. 

Today I found a plant with long and narrow leaves with yellow flowers and a flower the mixture of pink and purple with maple-shaped leaves. In addition, I also collected irene herbs and mylene herbs. 

Upon thinking about it, I came to the conclusion that I should be able to create potion by boiling down the herb. I was thinking of giving it a try next time. 

Then, I continued my foraging even after I defeated my 12th slimes. 

『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda went from lv 2 to lv 3. 

HP: 7→8


Strength: 7→9

Intelligence: 68→69

Dexterity: 10→11

Speed: 9→10』



I returned to the shed since it was about time to call it a day.

Then I wanted to appraise the 2 new plants that only had ‘flower’ as its description. The first one I chose was the yellow flower with long and narrow leaves. I sniffed the plant, it seemed there was no problem with the smell. I munched on the leaves… Carefully biting into the leaves and swallowing it.

I could feel the inner part of my head becoming warm. With irene herb, it felt like my whole body became warm but for this plant, it felt like only my head felt more refreshed. Then, I used appraisal on the plant again. 

【Berzin Magic Herb: The leave and the petal can restores magic and vitality.】


I was relieved to know this was not a poisonous plant. I felt like I was playing Russian roulette. Since I had gathered some of this herb, I decided to plant them in my garden too later. 

The next one was the plant with maple-shaped leaves and pink-purplish flowers. I had a bad feeling about this plant but I wouldn’t be able to know what this plant was unless I tried to eat it first.

I carefully sniffed on it but I couldn’t detect any distinguishable scent from it. However, despite my bad feeling, I couldn’t rule out the possibility of it being a profitable medicinal herb. 


I held mylene herb in one hand and mustered the resolve to bring this unknown plant into my mouth. 


It felt like electric current was going through my tongue. I swallowed the leaves and immediately, I could feel a piercing pain in my head. At the same time, I could also feel my consciousness becoming cloudy.

While still being barely conscious, I hastily swallowed mylene herb. I fell on my back with a thunk and remained in that position for 30 minutes. The detoxification must be taking effect since I could somehow feel my consciousness coming back to me. 

『Individual Name: Keigo Okuda has acquired Poison Resistance Lv 2.』

Once again, the mechanical announcement resounded in my mind. 

While vacantly looking up at the ceiling like an idiot, I thought to myself maybe this was also part of my training. I heard an excellent assassin would build up poison resistance by digesting a small dose of poison so maybe I was also doing similar things to them in a sense? 

Nah, I doubt it.

Then I used appraisal on the plant again.

【Gadol Poisonous Plant: Poisonous plant that clouds one’s consciousness and can cause hallucination.】

I was very tempted to just throw these things away immediately because I had almost died thanks to it but then… I remembered I had to utilize all the items I got. Since I had collected some of these poisonous plants as well, I decided to plant them in a separate area, away from the herb and food. 

I thought that since I could sell that badol poisonous plant, maybe I could also find some use for this poisonous plant as well. 


T/N: I originally thought our MC is the cowardly type but seeing how brave he is to eat what seems to be a poisonous plant that can kill him, I think MC is the dumb type now. ヽ(*・ω・)ノ
