Morning came and I didn’t get to sleep at all. I forced my sleep deprived body to rise and washed my face with cold water. I had to feed the animals at the very least.
I didn’t feel well today so I decided it’d be better if I didn’t go outside today. I stayed inside while nibbling on bread and dried meat. I also drank herbal tea to calm myself.
Let’s just lie down for now.
Ash looked like he was in high spirits, totally oblivious to my anxiety. I gave him deer bone and he played with it excitedly.
I seemed to have fallen asleep for a little bit. I yawned and sluggishly got up.
Going outside would be dangerous since that guy might have taken notice of me so I did whatever the things I could do inside. I went to the blacksmith workshop and did some practice I could do indoors like practicing ‘foot sword kick’, magic and swordsmanship.
My stomach was rumbling so I decided to have lunch. For lunch I had the simple dried meat with raw egg, bread and plain water.
Going outside was dangerous. There was also the possibility I could let the flying lizard know the existence of a human if I lit up the fire in the furnace to do blacksmithing work. It was better to use fire as minimum as possible.
I did nothing but work hard in training inside the blacksmith workshop to distract myself.
My body was sweating from working out so I soaked the towel in water and used it to wipe my body since I couldn’t get into the bath at times like this.
I slowly opened the door to the blacksmith workshop and peered outside.
It seems like everything is alright for now.
With food and a water dagger flask in my hand, I moved quickly into my bedroom.
It was a quiet night. From the outside, I could hear the faint sound of the birds, the insects and the rustling sounds of the trees like usual. But, you couldn’t be vigilant enough.
Today I decided to not run away from reality by drinking alcohol. If I drank, I wouldn’t be able to move properly when the time came. I needed to face reality properly. I should eat, drink water and go to bed properly. I should also put my equipment on and prepare my sword and shield so I could immediately grab them when I needed to.
Next, minimize the usage of fire and refrain from going out as much as possible. I should erase all traces of people in my house.
Those were the only things I could do right now but it was fundamental for me to do those things perfectly.
After dinner, which consisted of dried meat, bread, rumi fruits and water, I decided to go to bed early.
