Wind magic training was added to my regimen the next morning.
Ash was enjoying the gentle breeze he received as he scratched his ear with his hind leg. The gentle sunlight, combined with the sound of birds chirping reverberating from somewhere…. What a peaceful day….
This magic. I was starting to get terribly anxious about what I could use it for.
The other day, I had made too many potions that the amount of herbs in my field was starting to deplete. Hence why I donned my carrier today to do some gathering.
While I was working toward the forest with Ash, I appraised every little bit of grass I saw.
Irene herb, mylene antidote herb, berzin magic herb, these were the plants that I primarily dug up from its roots. On a rare occasion, I would find marble herbs so I also gathered them.
Okay, my carrier is almost full.
This amount of herbs should be good enough. I had thought I’d encounter a monster but contrary to my expectations, I didn’t get attacked by any monster.
I dropped my carrier beside my house and began having a little late lunch. I fried both the egg and dried meat on a frying pan then brewed tea from marble leaves.
Ah~ As I thought, tea sure is nice. It calms me.
After taking a short break, I started planting the plants I had collected in the field.
After gardening for nearly an hour, I heard a sharp cry “kyan!” coming from somewhere. I looked around my house and saw a bluewolf about 2 meters big got trapped in an ankle snare trap.
I quietly readied my bow and approached it but then, Ash suddenly sat down in front of me as if he was trying to protect the bluewolf. He then whined ‘kuuun’ at me.
I see. Now that you mention it, this wolf is also one of your friends, huh.
I continued to approach the bluewolf to see its reaction and to my surprise, the bluewolf didn’t bear any hostility toward me. The wolf was paralyzed from the drug so I deemed the situation should be safe enough. I then released him from the ankle snare trap.
His leg that got caught in the trap was hurt. I went to my house to get some bandages and grind some medicinal plants to make a salve. I coated the wound with the salve and wrapped a bandage around it. After a while, the blue wolf that had been staring at us intensely, left for the forest.
Come to think of it, this very same thing has happened to me too before but with a goblin. If they’re not going to attack me then I wouldn’t go all the way to fight them first.
“Come now, Ash. Let’s go. We need to continue working in the field.”
I quickly went back to the field to continue my work.
After finishing dinner, I brushed my teeth and was about to go to sleep when I remembered that I hadn’t repaid Sarasa for the bracelet she had given to me.
Maybe I should discuss what present to give to Sarasa and buy it together with him. I’d feel bad if I didn’t get anything to repay her back after all. As for Margo… Well, I doubt I had to worry about him. I should go to the inn where Juno was staying at tomorrow.
T/N: Man I feel betrayed. What’s the use of your high INT status MC (Ｔ▽Ｔ)
Maybe his INT status is the one helping him with the blacksmithing and alchemist? That high INT status definitely is not helping in his magic though.
