“Hey, can I stop by the goblin I just killed for a minute? I mean, just for a little bit.”
A few minutes into the walk.
While looking forward, Zink-kun is probably listening to me.
He seems to have been curious earlier, and I don’t mind if we’re going in the right direction, but…
“Is there a reason for that?”
“That goblin had a sword, didn’t it? The sword is worth money if we retrieve it, and if we leave it there, another goblin will start using it, and it will be a problem.”
I see, so that is why.
If that’s the case, you should have said so earlier…but I don’t think I understood Zink’s words at the time either.
It seems disrespectful to retrieve the sword while we were in battle, so I guess he has no choice but to leave the sword there.
He’s a good kid, isn’t he?
I’m certain that Zink will be happy to retrieve it.
“I’d really like to collect the subjugation parts of the sword and the magic stone, but… we don’t have much time.
I’ll just collect the sword for now.”
What’s that? Subjugation part? Magic stone?
Can you explain it in more detail to this person (Me) here, who didn’t have any information about this kind of thing?
I knew a little about that kind of information from novels, but had forgotten about it!!!!
…Well, I don’t have any kind of knife for dismantling, so I guess it was impossible anyway.
“By the way, do you think you can sell those magic stones?”
“All of Monster’s magic stones that appear in this forest are small, so they don’t bring in much money.
But it’s still an important income for a newcomer like us.
I usually collect all of them.”
“Don’t nobles know about magic stones? They seem to spend a lot of them.”
“Well… as I have said before, I’m not an aristocrat, I’m a commoner, and I’m more of a lower-class company employee…”
“What? Are you raising some kind of amazing creature?”
I don’t think I’m communicating with Mei-chan properly, but that’s not the point.
And Potta-kun is already in pain.
He doesn’t seem to have time to talk.
Mei-chan is 10 years old, Potta-kun is 11, and Zink is 12.
They are a trio of good friends, all of whom belong to a hunter guild and form a party of three.
They are in an adventurer’s guild, so to speak.
It’s the kind of job that people from other worlds are destined to have.
It is indeed a fantasy!
Mei-chan’s parents are pharmacists, and even though she is still young, she is good at identifying medicinal herbs.
She has joined the Hunter’s Guild, which allows registration from the age of 10, and is accompanying Zink-kun to train and earn money.
Of course, he is responsible for gathering at the party.
Whenever there are medicinal herbs along the way, she picks them up and throws them into the basket that Potta-kun carries on his back.
If her parents were pharmacists, it would be hard to imagine a situation where a 10-year-old child would have to work, but in this world, there is a way to heal by magic.
The creation of healing items such as potions is a different job from that of the apothecary, and the apothecary’s job is mainly to treat internal illnesses rather than external ones.
From what I have heard, I have the impression that what the apothecary deals with is similar to Chinese medicine.
In this world, poor people basically believe that they can recover from their illness by sleeping, and that if they cannot recover, they will die, no matter what they do.
Those who can afford to do so will ask a pharmacist for help, but if it gets too bad, they will ask for either magical treatment or medical treatment, which is a specialized field for diseases in this world.
So, even at the age of 10, she is helping her family’s finances by bringing money into the house.
I almost cried when I heard that.
Potta-kun’s parents were peasants, and he was strong, probably because he helped to carry crops from an early age.
However, he is too timid to face a monster with a weapon because his character is too timid to match his size, so his job is to carry what he hunts or gathers in a big basket.
Indeed, he exudes gentleness throughout, so the world of cut and thrust is probably not for him.
But then, why register as a hunter? When I asked him about it, he told me that it is easy to make “prayers to the Goddess” come true if he defeats Monster or accompanies Monster, and that he helps his parents when they are busy harvesting or planting seeds, and when they are not so busy, he helps Zink when he is not so busy.
When they are not so busy, they accompany Zink-kun in this way and try their best to make money and make the “Prayer to the Goddess” easier to be fulfilled.
…I’m not certain how much of this is true, since Mei-chan is answering all the questions for me.
Incidentally, the “Prayer to the Goddess” is to go to the statue of the god in the church and ask to strengthen your skill, and you will learn a skill or increase the level of that skill.
Potta-kun can only speak the language of the country in which he lives, since it seems that he has never had anything to do with study.
However, since he cannot read or write well, Mei-chan made fun of him saying that he has already spent more than a year worrying about whether to ask the goddess for [Language Understanding] or [Farming], the family business.
Mei-chan seems to have decided that [pharmacology], which is necessary for a pharmacist, is the best, and [gathering] so that he can do gathering himself if he can afford it, so I am pouting at his indecisiveness.
It is childish and very miserable that he gives a third choice to improve his [Strength] that he has already mastered in the “status evaluation” that he gets for free only once when he registers with the guild.
Potta-kun will be bald from a young age.
Finally, Zink-kun leads this party and used to hunt alone in this forest until Mei-chan and Potta-kun joined him.
His father was a hunter, so it is reassuring to know that he has some knowledge about monsters and hunting.
Naturally, he was responsible for exterminating the Monsters in the party.
His father had already passed away, and his mother did not possess any special skills, so Zink-kun is currently the mainstay of the family.
He usually hunts mainly Horn Rabbits, which I call Horned Rabbits, and I have heard very useful information that Horn Rabbits are the most profitable in this forest because they can sell meat.
Zink-kun is walking around with the sword he retrieved earlier, tapping the roots of trees and the ground with the side of his sword.
