80 Request details

"I see. ......
 I growl at the shards spread out before me.
So, what kind of restoration are you looking for?
 Do you want it restored to its original state, completely unrecognizable, or do you just want it to look the same? If it's the latter, I can do it tomorrow, but if it's the former, it's obvious that I'll have a hard time. If the latter, it could be done tomorrow.
Of course, I'd be more than happy to restore it to its original state.
 "Of course, if you can restore it to its original state, that would be great," said the client woman in a voice that could rightly be described as ringing a bell.
But if that's not possible, I'll do the best I can.
 In other words, she wants me to go as far as I can. It's not much of a career, actually, but it sure makes my craftsman's blood boil.

One more thing. You came here alone, didn't you?
"Yes. Yes, alone.
 I don't know the details because Samija isn't here, but at least I don't think there are any signs of her being around, and I don't think she's lying. I'm not sure if I'll take it or not.
 As I was considering whether or not to accept the offer, the woman spoke a little too quickly.
"Well, I used a concealment spell on the way, was that wrong?
 She knew I was thinking. She seemed to think that I was thinking of saying that I came alone. I guess there is such a thing as magic to hide yourself.
I smiled and said, "No, I don't care how you did it, but if you're here alone, there's no problem.
 I smiled and replied. I don't mean to be so strict, either. ....... The woman seemed truly relieved to hear that.

"Then I accept this request.
Are you sure?
 The woman stood up and shouted loudly. That was pretty loud.
Oh, I'm sorry. ......
 She sat back down in her chair. It was only for a moment, but maybe that was the ground. Otherwise, I wouldn't have thought of coming to this place.
"No, don't worry about it. So when do you need it done?
I'd appreciate it if it was sooner, but could you give me two weeks at the latest?
 Two weeks. I think I can get it to the right place.

Well, I'm very sorry, but I'd like you to check on me every day during the restoration.
What do you mean?
It's not that I don't trust you, Mr. Eizo, but things are what they are, and if something should go wrong, ......
Oh, I see.
 I'm not saying that I don't trust you, Eizo. It's obvious that if I were to take it with me and make a phone call, I'd be in big trouble.
I don't mind that, but isn't it hard to go there every day?
"No, it's fine if you lend me a part of your garden.
 He said this as if it were a matter of course, but I wondered if it would be a problem for a woman to sleep in the forest, even if it was near her house. There may not be bandits, but wolves and bears are common.
You know there are vicious beasts around here, right?
Yeah, if the magic around this house is strong enough, they probably won't come near it.
 That's new. Come to think of it, we don't have anyone who knows anything about magic.
The Kuro Forest is a land with a lot of magic, but the area around this house has a particularly high level of magic, which is why there are no trees growing there. That's why there are no trees. I was impressed that you chose this place because you knew about it. ......
No, I had no idea.
 And I didn't have a choice in the first place. But it's no wonder wolves don't happen to pass by and squirrels don't relax in the lumber.
I asked you about this place because I saw your mithril rapier and I was convinced that you had the skill to weave magic cleanly, but maybe it's also ......
Craftsman's intuition.
 You can't say it's a cheat, because it's not. You can't say it's a cheat, but you can say it's not a conscious decision. When the woman heard this, her shoulders slumped. I'm sorry.

 But now I know two things. One is that the elf probably saw the rapier I hit within a few days of delivery, and then went to Camilo to ask about our location.
 The other reason is the performance of the custom-made model I hit and why it didn't work when I did the same thing in Tokyo. Based on what he said, it seems to me that products made with magic power are stronger. The magic in this place is so strong that it can contain a lot of magic, but in the capital, the magic is so thin that it cannot contain enough. If you think that by mixing my knife, which contains enough magic power, it worked, then the whole story makes sense.

But even if it's all right, we can't leave the woman outside, and fortunately we have a guest room. Fortunately, we have a guest room. I know it may be inconvenient for you, but please stay there.
 The woman who had been slumping her shoulders seemed to have recovered a little.
"Are you sure? You have three wives, don't you?
"There are three women in the ...... family, but no wives, so please feel free.
 The source of this information is Camilo. Remember that next time you see him.
I'll take your word for it.
 The elven woman seemed a little puzzled, but eventually bowed her head. Helen said she was going away for a while, and I don't think we'll have any visitors for a while, so we should be fine.

 Then there was a clang of the workshop bell. Samija and Deanna had come home. I looked at the door to the house, wondering how I was going to explain this to them.
