All-rounder Healer Chapter 294: Mr. Nick’s Thoughts

Support the translator on


 Then, after taking a nap, I helped repair the gate and restore the village, and then decided to pass the baton to the rescue team from the town of Lubanni and return to the Royal Capital.


 To be honest, the option of not returning to Royal Capital and heading back to the Lubanni side of town crossed my mind, but I had my adventurer rank to consider, and I had made connections with people thanks to my long stay, so I couldn’t just disappear and put it on hold for now.


 The next day after returning to the Royal Capital, I went to the Adventurers’ Guild to receive my reward.



“Here is 30 gold coins.” (Receptionist)


“…Isn’t that a lot? If I remember correctly, it should have been just 10 gold coins.” (Rook)


“That would have been the amount if there had been no problems, but since you have solved the various problems, it seems that it needed to be increased.” (Receptionist)


“Is that so.” (Rook)



 I received the money and left the counter.


 I wonder if this amount is high or low. …I think it is high for an ordinary C-rank adventurer, but considering that I was bound for several days, I don’t think it is worth it, but I wonder.


 As I started to walk out of the guild, I spotted Mr. Nick having a drink at the bar.



“Are you drinking today too?” (Rook)


“Oh, Rook. You’re welcome to join me.” (Nick)


“…I’m good.” (Rook)



 I ordered a lager from the master and lifted the cup toward Nick.


 Then Mr. Nick thought for a while and bumped his cup against my cup.



“To Cotte Village.” (Rook)


“…to Cotte Village.” (Nick)



 I guild it down and place it on the counter with a thud.


 Nick also puts his cup down and looks down a little.


 A few quiet moments passed.


 I couldn’t stand it any longer, so I asked him a question.



“In the end, why was Cotte Village attacked?” (Rook)


“…Well, I don’t know what the bigwigs are thinking. However, it might mean that there is still some internal conflict in this country.” (Nick)


“A conflict…” (Rook)


“Each region in this country has its own unique color. Rather than being a citizen of the Zantz Kingdom, they feel more like citizens of that region. I didn’t realize this until I became an adventurer and went out into the world.” (Nick)



 Saying this, Nick gulped down his lager.



“The current royal family is probably encouraging this. In fact, I feel like they are stirring up conflict and using it to control the people.” (Nick)


“I see…” (Rook)



 It is a common practice to strengthen the unity of fellow citizens by creating enemies.



“How did we become such a country…? The Guild Master and I would like to change it, but it’s not easy.” (Nick)


“…” (Rook)



 I wondered if the Guild Master is aware of the same problem that’s why he sent a rescue team to Cotte Village.


 Well, national culture and regional culture are things that have accumulated over many years, and they don’t change overnight. Whatever the reason, many people think that this is normal.


 Still, a phrase comes to mind recently, and it leaks out of my mouth.



“Three years for peaches and chestnuts, eight years for persimmons.” (Rook)


“Hmm? What? Peaches…?” (Nick)


“Ah, no… I remember a story about Orans and Appols, and how you plant a seed, and it grows into a tree, but it doesn’t bear fruit for a few years, and you have to wait for a few years.” (Rook)



 I said, but are the fruits of this world really the same?


 …Well, that’s fine. After I’ve said it.



“Is that so? I’m not familiar with agriculture.” (Nick)


“I mean, it takes a certain amount of time for fruit to be harvested. There’s an old saying from my hometown that goes something like, ‘Likewise, it takes a certain amount of time to get anything done.’” (Rook)


“…” (Nick)


“So even if it doesn’t work now if you keep planting the seeds and keep doing it, one day things will change.” (Rook)



 Even if there are conflicts between communities, if we continue to interact with each other, one day it may change…


 But if we don’t move first, there will be no change.


 Even if there are no results, there must be things that will blossom by continuing to do so.



“I see… Maybe that’s true.” (Nick)



 After saying that, I left Mr. Nick, who was silent, and stood up from my seat.


 Maybe he needs a little time to sort things out.


 As I was walking out of the Adventurers’ Guild, a guild employee put a new piece of paper on the bulletin board.



“…There are reports of sightings of unknown monsters, huh?” (Rook)



 The content was about a mysterious monster, but the details were still under investigation, and there was little information on it, just a reminder to be cautious.



“With so little information, I don’t know what to do.” (Rook)



 I should be careful outside the town for a while.


 I returned to the inn, thinking things over.


 Then, I did some Mind Unification to calm my mind.



“Alright!” (Rook)


“Kyu?” (Shion)


“I’m going to go swing a spear for a while.” (Rook)



 I took out my mithril spear from my magic bag and wielded it in the backyard on the first floor.


 I swung the spear with all my heart.


 Stab, parry, sweep, and slash.


 As I told Nick earlier, it takes time to see results. Once the seed has been planted, you have to nurture it slowly until you see results. Even this spear technique has to be nurtured slowly.


 I put my heart and soul into each and every swing.


 Gradually, my spirit becomes sharper and my movements more sharp.


 The tip of the spear, slicing through the air, roars.


 I feel like I’m on the verge of finding something. But I also feel that it is still far away.


 And although I continued to practice with all my heart, I still couldn’t grasp anything big.



“…this should be enough for today.” (Rook)



 Then I ate dinner, went back to my room to unpack, and opened Holy Dimension.



“To a new world. Open the dimensional door, [Holy Dimension].” (Rook)



 I went into the Holy Dimension and moved some of the dried meat from the magic bag and put some of the books I had finished reading into the Holy Dimension.



“I might need a bookshelf soon.” (Rook)



 Well, before that, I also want a desk and a chair.


 No, I need a desk and a chair before that.


 At the moment, three Oran trees occupy most of the space in the Holy Dimension, with the bones of the Zombie Dragon on the other side of the tree, and Time Stop Box and other items piled up at the back of the room.


 Although I can at least get a sleeping space, it’s time to get things organized.


 After watering my daily routine, I decided to call Lizzy when I was done.


 I felt like talking to her.



“Heed my call and show me the way [Summon Fairy].” (Rook)



 Lizzy jumped out of the usual three-dimensional magic circle.



“Hello!” (Lizzy)


“Kyu!” (Shion)


“Hi!” (Rook)



 I watched the usual banter between Lizzy and Shion, and when that died down, I asked Lizzy a vague question that I was currently thinking about.



“Actually, I’m thinking about what to do now, what do you think, Lizzy?” (Rook)


“What do you want to do, Rook?” (Lizzy)


“Me? I…” (Rook)



 I thought about these unexpected words for a while.


 When I first came to this world, I was trying my best to live a normal life, and recently I wanted to go to various places and see this world, and I wanted to have the minimum power to be able to do that. Even if I can’t overcome or solve the various problems that arise, at the very least, I’m strong enough to survive.


 And then there is this town.


 It’s become nasty lately, and I’m starting to wonder if I really want to stay in this town. But there are people I have become friends within this town, and I don’t think it’s right to force myself to cut short my schedule and go to another town.



“The flowers have withered…” (Lizzy)


“Yeah? Oh, that’s right…” (Rook)



 The flowers of the three Oran trees, which until a short time ago emitted a sweet smell, are wilting and dying, and it is sometimes difficult to clean the fallen petals.



“But you can’t eat Orans unless they wither, right?” (Lizzy)


“Right…” (Rook)


“Kyu…” (Shion)



 There is a beginning because there is an end.


 Because the flower withered, we can eat delicious Orans.



“Shion! Let’s look forward to it!” (Rook)


“Kyu!” (Shion)



 Well, it’s a benefit.


 It’s better to have them laugh than to have them look sad, though.


 Anyway, if Lizzy doesn’t say anything, I guess there won’t be any big problems in the future.


 The only thing left to do is to think and act on my own.
