~3rd Person Perspective~
Enrique wakes up on a tree.
He’s still tired.
It was already around 9 o’clock in the morning
The sun has risen.
The fear from Kaoru’s intimidation yesterday still remained in his body, weighing him down.
“Oh, that’s the worst. What should I do now…” (Enrique)
Thinking while sighing and shaking his head.
Two healers who have a huge amount of MP.
Enrique saw Alicia and thought she didn’t have an abnormal amount of MP.
Still, Alicia’s magical power is not noticeably high because she only slightly releases magical power over her skin.
He thought about threatening Kaoru as with a hostage, but he was not confident that he would make it out alive.
Thinking about this, he rejected the idea.
As he was thinking, he suddenly remembered.
He remembered the two animals that had been lying on the bed.
“If I’m not mistaken, those must have been pink rabbis. If I bring them back with me… no, they won’t forgive me… they’ll kill me for sure.” (Enrique)
The answer he could see ahead of him showed him that the situation he was in was the worst.
Looking down while holding his head, he saw explorers he knew entering the labyrinth.
“I wonder what I should do. Kaoru, he’s not going to get mad, is he?” (Bud)
“There’s no point in worrying about it, is there? I think you can talk to Kaoru about it.” (Tryst)
“Do you want to sacrifice me? Bud and Tryst, both of you are trying to sacrifice me, aren’t you?” (Carl)
“Carl, we won’t do that…” (Bud)
“Wow, your eyes are swimming! Bad, your eyes are avoiding mine!” (Carl)
“Carl, there’s no way Bud’s eyes are like that…… Oh, my God. Oh, my God! Splash him with water.” (Tryst)
“Jokes aside, it’s really bad. We’re procrastinating, but it can be said that it’s the worst timing. For the money, we can manage it, but Kaoru would be difficult.” (Bud)
“I think it’s better to apologize seriously. Without joking, if he gets information from others, it will be worse.” (Tryst)
“Kaoru seems to have his reasons, and there’s a 90% chance it’s impossible according to Dirk-san.” (Carl)
“That’s right. I guess I’ll just have to make up my mind this evening.” (Tryst)
Saying that Bud and the others went into the labyrinth.
Enrique, who was listening to the conversation, got off the tree with a grin on his face.
Putting his hand on his chin and he replayed the conversation between Bud and his party.
The current healer’s name is Kaoru, he is not a healer for some reason.
I thought it might be a good idea to shake things up a bit.
It was safe to assume that this Kaoru guy had some kind of trouble with the Healers’ Guild.
If he poked at it, he would not be able to continue being a healer on this island.
“I’ll just have to stir things up”, he thought.
Enrique in a hurry to do something worthwhile took out the general equipment for travelers from the item box, equipped it, and headed for the village.
Those who come to the clinic and receive treatment look at Alicia with a poker face.
Soon after, they have a stupid look on their faces.
“Oh, Alicia, you learned the intermediate recovery magic before we knew it.” (Patient)
“Ehehe, Kaoru-sama taught me. I was taught very carefully and I was able to handle the spells.” (Alicia)
Alicia said that with a feeling of happiness.
As usual, a Pink Rabbi is on her head.
The pink rabbi pretended to be a stuffed animal, didn’t try to move at all.
Alicia looks very happy that the wounds she healed the way that she wished them to.
It was clean and the deep scratches the patient received from King Sahuagin were gone.
“Kaoru and Alicia are so amazing that I’m really surprised.” (Patient)
“I’m not even close to Kaoru-sama’s feet. Kaoru-sama is even more amazing.” (Alicia)
“Yeah, I know, but you’re amazing. I mean, you should have just been able to use beginner magic the other day, but now you can use intermediate level spells.” (Patient)
“Hey, even if you praise me, the price will not be cheaper!” (Alicia)
“It’s cheap enough. Rather, there’s only one place in the world that offers this kind of treatment at a low price.” (Patient)
Alicia was very happy to receive the highest praise.
After receiving the money, Alicia was skipping joyfully as she went to get change.
Watching Alicia, I went to see her patient.
Then the man Alicia was treating also started asking me.
“What on earth can I learn to intermediate level in such a short time? Alicia is not that high level.” (Patient)
“Well, I guess it’s because she’s working hard.”
“No, it’s not a level that can be managed with just effort. Her’s is almost the same as a full-fledged person who can use the intermediate level. If you don’t have the skill, most healers will stumble first and work hard from the beginner level. What is it Kaoru? Did you use some trick?” (Patient)
“I don’t know what the tricks there are. Well, I’m sure I have some qualities, but Iteaching by making a grimoire.”
“!? Hey… I didn’t know, but you can make a grimoire?” (Patient)
“Most of the people who can handle magic should know how to make one, right?”
“No, no. No one should be able to easily do that. I’m scared of you who would spit out words that could offend Eclix.” (Patient)
“It’s just a spell written on paper. If you don’t understand it, you can’t use it. You should have enough MP.”
“Sure, it might be just paper for someone like us, but for a healer, I think it’s something I’d want more than anything.” (Patient)
“That may be so, but it depends on the person who can handle it. I heard that some people can’t use it for the rest of their lives.”
Alicia comes to our side while I was conversing with the patient.
She looked happy, having finished her work.
I also ended the conversation, took the fee, and sent the patient off.
“Kaoru-sama, everyone praised me for being amazing. Ehehe.” (Alicia)
“I’m glad. Let’s do our best next treatment too.”
“Yes, I’ll do my best with Kaoru-sama.” (Alicia)
“Well, the higher the goal, the better, isn’t it”
I said with a chuckle.
Then I hear the sound of knocking on the door of the clinic.
I wonder who is knocking since the shift is over.
Alicia heads to the door.
When she opened the door, there was a person who was a non-resident of this village.
He was wearing light leather gear with a long sword at his side.
He also has pointy ears on the side of his face.
Alicia tilts her head pondering.
“Oh, I’m sorry. I’m a traveler. I’d like to receive treatment, can you do it?” (Traveller)
That being said, the traveler looks at Alicia and me as if he were observing us.
Alicia grew uncomfortable with the gaze and hid behind me.
It’s a conditioned reflex.
“Oh, I’m sorry. You seem too young to be a healer… Sorry for the late introductions, I’m Enrique.” (Enrique)
“I don’t mind. Where are you injured, Enrique?”
When I say this, Enrique sits in a chair while removing his equipment.
His shoulder was wrapped in a bandage and blood was oozing out.
I carefully remove the bandages.
“This is… a terrible wound.”
“I was attacked by a monster on my way here.” (Enrique)
“Is it a wolf… it’s a pretty deep wound.”
There was a wound on his shoulder as if he had been bitten by a large dog.
Alicia’s expression becomes uneasy when she sees the wound.
“Can you cure it?” (Enrique)
“I’m sure it’ll heal, but after the treatment, you need to rest. You’ve bled quite a lot.”
“I’ll do my best, but I’m in the middle of a journey, so I can’t rest too long.” (Enrique)
The man said with a wry smile.
I scratched my head and subtly use [Diagnosis] on the wound chant-lessly to check for infections such as Pine Bacteria.
The result was “no infection”.
After confirming that, I think about the weakest spell to fully heal this wound.
I don’t want to stand out by using advanced magic.
Besides, even if they call themselves a traveler, there are times when they don’t really say what they are.
I put my right hand over the wound and channeled my MP.
With enough MP to completely heal this injury, I focused on the recovery magic.
“Recovery Magic—[Increased Recovery – Light Cure]”
An intense blue light covers the wound.
The light wraps around the cut wound and fully regenerates the damaged flesh.
When the light vanished, there was not a trace of the wound.
“Wow… the wound is gone!” (Enrique)
Kaoru had healed it by using intermediate recovery magic, using more MP to add an additional effect. The extra effect forces the cells to the utmost limit of what intermediate recovery magic can heal.
Enrique was surprised and bewildered.
His speech had also returned to his normal pattern.
“Intermediate recovery magic shouldn’t be able to completely recover…” (Enrique)
“Well, you can do this by using more MP? Travelers don’t know much about that.”
“Well, is that so… No, but that kind of MP…” (Enrique)
He put his hand on his chin and looked down while mumbling.
Unbeknownst to me, what I had done can be done by a skilled healer. However, it can only be done with a considerable amount of experience.
And a person of that caliber usually belongs to a major institution such as Eclix, not a common healers guild.
There are exceptions, but they are extremely rare.
“Oh, are you from the Church of Eclix?” (Enrique)
“No way, you must be kidding. I don’t belong to such a place.”
“Oh, you don’t belong to that place. That’s a very strange thing to say.” (Enrique)
Enrique said with a slightly dumbfounded expression.
“If you have that amount of skill, you can go anywhere.” (Enrique)
“I’m just able to do this much. There are many things I can’t do.”
“You’re so modest. If you want, I can introduce you to a good place.” (Enrique)
“No, I’m fine where I am for now.”
I brushed aside Enrique’s proposal.
Then, Enrique’s expression changed for a moment.
However, it soon returned to his previous expression.
“I see. Well, that’s too bad. It’s a shame because if you’re that good, you’ll be treated very well at Eclix.” (Enrique)
“I’m sorry I hate belonging to such a confining institution. And I don’t need prestige.”
Enrique is frustrated by Kaoru’s words.
He wondered if he was being mocked when he said he didn’t need a position.
Sure, there are titles and ranks in this world, but they are limited and special.
The reason is that being a healer is prestigious.
There is also a disparity.
Those who normally do business and work, those who are adventurers and explorers, those who are aristocrats and royalty are ranked, but the highest is the group of therapists. Eclix is said to have the highest status on this continent.
Everyone gets sick.
Some people do not, but if they are afflicted with a major illness, they would need treatment.
Even the monarchs.
Most of the people who can provide the best treatment are gathered in Eclix, so in the end, they have no choice but to rely on it.
Because of this, the empire is currently in decline and losing power.
“Oh yeah, this village will soon have to be officially recognized.” (Enrique)
