Like always, I ate a breakfast of honey-toast, took a dose of herb tea, and soon a Customer-san came.
Adventurers heading to the forest came to buy poison-cleansing herbs.
Just in case, I recommended medicinal antidotes rather than the poison-cleansing herbs, but the disadvantage is that they’re expensive so the poison-cleansing herbs were chosen instead.
I gave a neighbor obaa-san with a bad back acupuncture treatment, and when I had straightened her spine she went home.
A doctor that had a cold also bought a lot of expensive restoratives.
In order to supply products and replenish them, I also have to prepare request documents for the Guild.
Next, using the left over medicinal and poisonous herbs, I make all sorts of medicinal products.
Unexpectedly, the amount of things I have to do are many.
Right when I was thinking it was about time to eat lunch, in the corner of the room a bug came out so I stepped on it to kill it.
There seems to be insecticides and traps.
There’s the possibility of contaminating the other medicines, so instead of insecticides I used sticky traps.
On a suitable wood plank I drew a magic circle, and installed them in corners where bugs seem like they would come to.
As for insecticides, in the first place there aren’t any cans or spray nozzles, so let’s substitute it with all sorts of things.
For the can I can substitute it with bottles or whatever, but a spray nozzle is problematic.
I shaved some wood round, clipped it, made a straw out of a forabbit’s gullet, and made an opening with a needle; it didn’t turn out so good, but in short it’s a small version of a well pump; I thought that, although it’s a little too soon to say that.
As expected of Craftship 10.
It was soon completed.
Since I’m going through the trouble, I thought I’d go to a blacksmith and request a water pump, but, since I’m currently watching the shop, I rethought it when I realized that the well out back didn’t have a pump, so it might be impossible without drawing a blueprint.
Ma, even if there wasn’t a well, I can create as much water as I want by drawing a magic circle, though.
Magic circles sure are convenient.
Magic is way too convenient, so that’s why there are so many things that haven’t been developed, naa; while thinking that I also made the type of insecticide that let’s out smoke from a bottle.
I close the window; the custom of calling out to the neighborhood that there’s no fire comes from THIS.
There’s probably no opportunity to test it in the store, but typical houses seem like they would have some.
I think that I should go look for a place somewhere to test it.
While working I tended to the customers, and pretty soon it’s evening.
When the sky had changed to an orange color, Sera and Balzack returned.
The two of them both had wrinkles between their eyebrows and drooping shoulders.
“Did something happen?”
When I tried asking, the work of identifying corpses and meeting with the bereaved went well, but I was made fun of a lot.
“‘It’s weird that there’s a G Rank adventurer that has the ability to defeat vespahornets. I bet he hired a strong guy from somewhere,’ they said! I was pissed off so I said, ‘It’s Master’s ability!’ and then they said that the slaves are too full of themselves. ‘Your master is only good at exterminations,’ is what the church’s priest said. Naoki-sama should destroy that person along with the church!”
An irritated Sera said.
“There are people who think that you’re hiding some kind of strong weapon. Please beware of thefts. Maa, they were all people who aren’t Naoki-sama’s match, but I think it might be better to show them your skill once. Yes, please definitely do this! We even have the option of holding a fighting tournament! In 8 or 9 cases out of 10, I think Naoki-sama would be the victor!”
Balzack also gets heated up.
“Naoki-sama as well; how does quickly ranking up sound? Don’t you already hold the ability to immediately become A rank?”
Sera changed her point of attack on me.
“If I remember, you’ll need 10 goblin ears just to raise to F, was it? And then there was fighting with a Guild instructer? Sorry, but for me, I’m not aiming for that. With that, it’s fine to just take the people who want to make me a fool as fools themselves, right? I don’t care, you know. Aside from that, take a look at this!”
I take an insecticide bottle with water in it and shot it towards the two.
The mist-like water spray made the two of their cheeks a little wet.
“Wh,what is it!? That!?”
“Cold! What are you doing?”
The two of them both had rather good reactions.
“This is something that, by switching the contents, you could spray insect repellent, spray paint, or put on perfume. What do you think, great, right?”
“It’s great. It’s really great, but!”
“It’s so plan!”
From their mouths, Sera and Balzack uttered complaints.
“Na! So mean! Even though I took the pains to make it in one day!”
“In a day, you made that thing?”
“That’s right! Geez, what awful slaves! To not praise their master’s great works.”
Camilla came back.
I showed Camilla the bottle too, but she said, “What is this, how plain,” and it was over.
“For crying out loud, is there nobody who can understand the majesty of this!?”
“Rather than that, here; I bought clothes for you to use for the date tomorrow, Naoki!”
“E!? What a wonderful person, Camilla is! From now own I will praise you as the wisest sage in the history of elves.”
“E,e,even if you praise me… So? It’s this. It’s like it’s just bursting with male sexiness. If it’s this, that girl will get all hot for you!”
So saying, what Camilla showed me was like amiami, a full-body tight with the other side transparent.
“Sorry, Camilla. I don’t think I can go along with your tastes. From now on you have won the title of the worst fashion leader in the history of elves.”
“Isn’t this amazing?! If you wear this, everyone in town will be turning to look at you!”
“And then I’ll be arrested by the guards! Forget it! I don’t want to hear anymore! I’m going to eat dinner and go right to sleep!”
Leaving aside Camilla who was grumbling complaints, we went to a pub in town to unwind, ate dinner, and after see the tipsy-ish Balzack off at the Guild’s inn, returned home.
I had also drunk liquor, so I entered the room, crawled into bed, and immediately fell asleep.
The next morning, I sent off the two slaves to the mansion that still had bodies left in it, bought a suitable shirt and black pants from the secondhand shop, and watched the store.
When it became around noon Irene came, so I left the store to Camilla and went out on my date.
We finished lunch at a public cafeteria and had tea.
“And so, Naoki-san, what did you want to know?”
“Everything, I guess. What is this world called? This country’s name, the town’s name, and what about if I want to go to the next town? Will a war break out? Other than the knowledge to live in this town, I really don’t know anything.”
Irene stroked her fox ears as she listened.
“Then, first would be the world, ne; rather than my knowledge, this is what pretty much most people know, though…”
What Irene told me is that this world is hemispherical, and the world seems to have an edge.
The world is called Serosophia.
And as for this country, it’s a country composed of the eastern half of a certain continent, so it’s name is the Country of Alisfay.
How big the continent is or what it’s shaped like is something Irene doesn’t know. This town is Kubenia, near the mountain ranges situated in the north of Alisfay that’s pretty much abandoned land.
Despite that, the previous feudal lords were great, so they have a Guild and commerce also developed somewhat.
Right now, Alisfay isn’t at war, but she doesn’t know about other countries.
Information gathering techniques haven’t been developed much, and government officials have also stopped the flow of information.
If I became a reporter, unexpectedly, I might be able to earn a lot.
From time to time, books are sent from the city, so the amount of things they have information on is many.
Among that there’s a story about a never before seen waterfall and never-before heard of machines written there; Irene said she’d like to see them once.
Since I’ve come to this world, 3 months have passed and I’ve gotten used to this town.
Seeing new towns and sceneries doesn’t sound too bad either.
Since I have the opportunity to come to another world.
“A, that’s right. There’s something I need to ask about.”
When we had left the public cafeteria and were fussing over the sundries shop and accessory shop, I thought of something.
“What is it? If it’s something I can answer, then I’ll answer it.”
“It’s just about slaves, see. Previously I hadn’t seen anything like slaves. So I’m troubled as to how to treat them; if it’s possible I’d like to quickly find them work and release them, but is that weird?”
“That’s true. A regular master of slaves wouldn’t do it. And it’s terribly difficult for former slaves to find jobs.”
“Is that so, I’ll have wait patiently, huh? Tell me if there’s any good jobs at the Guild. Something an old dog beastkin or Gekko tribe with the Appraisal Skill can do. As for Sera she’s not cursed anymore, so she should be quite useful.”
“… There is one, but I wonder how it would be?”
“Really!? Please, please, as long as it’s something where they can make their living expenses and won’t be troubled for food, whatever is fine.”
Like that we went into a cafe and, while drinking tea, I talked with Irene.
When we left the cafe it was totally dusk.
Irene was carrying a lot of flower and accessory souvenirs.
It seems that Irene lives in the company housing close to the Guild, and so I saw her off to there.
“Thanks for today. I’m glad to learn all sorts of things about this world. And I’m in your care about the aforementioned thing.”
“Me too; to have received so many souvenirs, I’ve made you use money.”
“It’s fine. Even if I kept it, I wouldn’t use it for anything useful. Then, really, thanks for today!”
“I thank you as well.”
Shaking hands with Irene, I hurry back to Elf’s Pharmacy.
Come to think of it, I don’t know what the special service was or if it happened, but the date went well so there’s no problems.
