The ground is hardly muddy, but even Krull seems to be having a little trouble carrying his prey this time. His steps were slower than usual.
I thought about helping him if he couldn't, but he didn't seem to be slowing down, so I just watched him. Maybe it's just an illusion of favoritism on my part, but she seems to be happy.
Lucy was running around Krull, barking "doggie dog! As for Lucy, she was running around Krull and barking "woof!
However, we couldn't stay only in the dust. On the way back, we were carrying meat, not to mention Anne's pursuers. There's no guarantee that there won't be some beast that wants to kill her. Not only bears and boars, but even wolves can be a threat in a pack. It's our job to keep an eye out for those signs.
Spread out and be alert. We're used to this, so we don't have to say much, but Anne won't know much, so I've kept her close to me. Helen will be behind us. If anything happens to her, she'll know the name "Lightning".
It took longer than usual, but we made it back safely. We started to dismantle it, but it was too heavy to hang on a tree. A branch of moderate thickness would break easily.
We decided to dismantle the tree while it was lying on the floor, because it was too big to hang it from the tree, and there would be places we couldn't reach. I will ask Anne to help me dismantle it. Her knife is a standard model, but I can vouch for its sharpness. As Samija taught us how to skin the boar, our hands, which were awkward at first, gradually became accustomed to the process. The boar is a big one, so there is no problem even if the fat is a little depleted.
After finishing the job, Krull drank a glass of water and leisurely watched us work with Lucy. We proceeded to dismantle the boar, and a little after noon, the boar finally turned into meat.
It's all about the meat, isn't it?
Anne said admiringly after her first dismemberment. After the first dismemberment, Anne said admiringly, "It's meat now. It would be rare for a nobleman to have seen it in this state.
Receiving life is something that we are very conscious of in this forest. I guess it's because this kind of work is familiar to us. That's not to say that it's not done in towns and cities, it's just that we don't see it.
I speak to Anne as if to tell her something. It's not that I don't like it, but it's not that I don't like it.
I see. ......
Anne said thoughtfully, as if she had something on her mind. It's not that I want the concept to spread in the empire, but I feel that it's a good thing that someone has such awareness.
After this, I dipped the boar meat in salt and dried it to preserve it. Of course, we will save some for ourselves. Today we had a lot of meat, but we also had a lot of fun because we had one more person who eats a lot.
Samija shouted after we finished the whole process. Rike chided her for her bad manners. But I guess everyone's stomach is the same. It's just a matter of saying it or not. As proof of this.
"I'm going to do my best today, so you'll have to wait a little longer.
When I said this, Samija and Rike cheered with glee.
