The next morning, I woke up feeling great. I washed my face with cold water. It was a refreshing morning. The three of them were already awake too so we decided to train together while Sarasa helped me take care of the animals and make breakfast for us.
The three of us trained for about an hour. It was nice to be able to practice while having a partner so I could have a mock battle type of training.

For breakfast, we had sunny side up herb chicken eggs, bread with dried meat and accompanied with rumi fruits. After we finished breakfast, Margo and the others returned to Resta.
I decided to work in my field and forage for plants for today.
I walked to the river with a carrier on my back. I appraised the plants and dug them from the roots before I put them into the carrier.
Feeling hungry, I decided to eat the lunch box I had prepared. Although I said ‘lunch box’, I had only prepared dried meat and bread along with rumi fruits. I had also put cooled herbal tea into my water bottle to moist my dry throat.
The meal tasted so delicious after doing manual labor.
Now then, it’s time for me to continue foraging.
It was about time for me to conclude the foraging. My carrier was about to get full too. Strangely enough, I didn’t encounter any monsters today. Maybe it was due to the subjugation request I had put in the adventurers’ guild.
When I returned home, I put down the carrier and took a small break on my handmade table set. I was out in the sun and did a lot of physical workout. I was really living a very healthy lifestyle.
Now then… I need to start working in the fields.
I turned my attention to the plants in my carrier.
I had finally finished the first stage of the work in the field. Both Ash and I were covered in mud so I decided to get into the bath after I finished heating the water first.
…. The warmth from the firewood really makes my heart feel at ease.
When I think about how this bathtub was heated with the fire from the firewood, somehow I felt more relaxed. It was truly a mysterious feeling.
I dived into the tub together with Ash.
Ash looked like he was enjoying himself too.
I wiped my body with a towel after I stepped out of the bath and then I used ‘wind’ to dry Ash’s body. I still had some leftover pork from the wild boar from yesterday so I planned on having pork steak for dinner tonight.
I grilled slightly more meat for Ash’s portion and then I enjoyed the grilled pork steak together with Milan fruit wine. Ash was also munching on his meal with gusto.
In order to relieve my body from the exhaustion of today’s work, I sipped the fruit wine bit by bit. At times like this, I tried to pay no attention to the time on the clock.
When I started getting a little tipsy, I went under the cover together with Ash. After saying ‘good night’ to Ash, I took out the monster’s core from the lantern to turn the lights off.
T/N: I still wonder what’s the purpose of MC’s high INT status… His wind magic is being used as a hairdryer… (༎ຶ⌑༎ຶ)
