“Your recommended wine.”
“Sure, five bronze coins.” (Barkeeper)
After that, I wandered around the town briefly and found a place to stay on the main street near the center of town. I went to the tavern on the first floor and ordered a cup of wine.
I grabbed the wine and settled in a corner of the counter, sipping and savoring it.
When I arrived in Elem and got off the carriage, I wondered what I should do now.
Should I go into the dungeon right away?
No, I don’t want to do anything scary like going into a dungeon without any information.
Should I go to the Adventurer’s Guild?
With that in mind, I looked up at the sky and saw that the sun was in a difficult position. It would probably start to set in a few hours. If I went there now, it would be crowded, and I didn’t know where the Adventurer’s Guild was. It would take extra time to find a new place in a new town.
After much deliberation, I decided to secure an inn as soon as possible.
I also drink a little wine.
Yeah, what is it… If you’re a little too polite and ask for a recommended wine, you’re going to get an expensive one… The wine I usually drink is watery and costs one copper, and this is five coppers. It’s five times as much!
…When you drink the expensive one like this, you can see that the cheap wine you usually drink is obviously watered down. The intensity of the taste and the alcohol are completely different.
I took another sip and savored it.
It’s sweet, with little sourness and a little bitterness. Easy to drink. It’s probably not aged. Is it because there is no culture to age sake, or because aged sake is monopolized by the rich, or because this store just doesn’t have it? I don’t know.
But for me, who doesn’t like to drink anything too strong, this is the best kind I prefer to drink.
But the alcohol is so strong that I think I would get drunk too fast.
While I was sipping wine, a group of adventurers gathered in the tavern.
I glanced sideways at them to see if they looked unnatural.
Most of the adventurers were carrying swords, spears, or bows. A few had hammers or maces, but no one had a staff. As for armor, most people wore leather armor or composite leather and metal armor. And again, no one was wearing a robe.
Incidentally, my equipment was the same as ever. I wore a white robe, an iron spear, a backpack, and in some cases a green cloak.
The white robe is starting to get damaged, probably because I’ve been wearing it for so long. However, thanks to the fact that I have been purifying it almost every day, it is completely spotless. If you think about it, it might appear a little unusual… I thought, but I guess I have no choice.
And considering the benefits, I can’t go back to a life without [Purification] now.
While I was thinking about this, all the adventurers gathered together and started drinking.
“Well, today was a big day, huh.” (Adventurer 1)
“I’m glad we found the Orcs.” (Adventurer 2)
“Now that we have received the Goddess’ Blessing, shall we go to the lower floor tomorrow?” (Adventurer 1)
“Whoa, whoa, whoa. Did you forget? It’s down there.” (Adventurer 2)
“Ah… that’s right. So we’ll be hunting Orcs for a while?” (Adventurer 1)
“Orcs are profitable, you know.” (Adventurer 2)
“Well, you’re right.” (Adventurer 1)
“Don’t be in such a hurry. We’ll get there soon.” (Adventurer 2)
“Yeah, I guess so.” (Adventurer 1)
“No sign of El Rabi today…” (Adventurer 3)
“It can’t be helped. There are days like that.” (Adventurer 4)
“If we can’t hunt El Rabi, we can’t make any money.” (Adventurer 3)
“It’s good to have a positive outlook, right?” (Adventurer 4)
“…Would you like to go further down from tomorrow?” (Adventurer 3)
“No, it’s too early for us.” (Adventurer 4)
“That’s right…” (Adventurer 3)
“You know something is smelly going on out west.” (Adventurer 5)
“Really?” (Adventurer 6)
“What is it?” (Adventurer 7)
“…Well, you know… I just heard rumors…” (Adventurer 5)
“Well, they say no pants are dirtied where there are no goblins, so maybe there’s something to it.” (Adventurer 5)
“What are you saying… what is it?” (Adventurer 7)
“I just thought about it now.”(Adventurer 5)
“Amazing! Genius!” (Adventurer 6)
“…What the hell are you two talking about? …I don’t get it… No, that’s enough. Do what you want.” (Adventurer 7)
I collected a variety of helpful and unnecessary conversations and returned to my room.
I wanted to collect a little more gossip, but the wine was stronger than usual and I was getting drunk faster than usual, so I had no choice.
Then I took out the Holy Stone I made in the morning and used [Summon Fairy].
The past few days, since I learned to use Holy Earth, it’s become a full routine. However, if I’m going to dive into a dungeon, that big consumption of magic power must be a bit tough. So I won’t be able to call on her much for a while, so I’m calling on her while I can.
Cute is justice, you know!
“Heed my call and show me the way [Summon Fairy].”
After the usual flashy performance, Lizzy appears.
“You know. Today! I took a nap on the gate!” (Lizzy)
The gate …… is the Fairy Gate, right?
If there is a gate, then there must be a house or a town or something beyond the gate, right?
I was curious for some reason, so I decided to ask the question myself today. Maybe I was feeling a little overwhelmed by the alcohol.
“Fairy Village? I mean, what kind of place does Lizzy live in?”
Lizzy spun around in the air, thought for a moment, and then answered.
“Well, let’s see! It’s soft, it’s shiny, and there are flowers!” (Lizzy)
“Hmm, is that so?”
Yeah, that’s right.
I don’t understand!
But I can’t say that!
“So! There’s a house with water squirting out of it!” (Lizzy)
“Oh, I see. That sounds awesome.”
I imagined something like a fountain. I don’t know if it’s right or not.
But it has a house? The Fairy world is also surprisingly similar to the human world? …No, there are many kinds of homes… Right?
“Oh! It’s almost time.” (Lizzy)
Oh… is it over?
Really, something, uh, some words… anything…?
“Lizzy, uh, about… tomorrow… uh.”
What am I saying…? I’m not sure if I’m drunk or not, but I can’t keep my thoughts and words together.
Lizzy looked at me and opened her mouth while glowing.
“There’s rain! See you!” (Lizzy)
She saluted cheerfully and disappeared with the light as usual.
Really, even as she disappears, it’s only a moment.
My doubts are heard by the inn’s walls.
