416 Let's go to town.

 I used a file to prepare the surface of the sword. However, this is only to remove the hammer marks and engraving chips that are left even when using cheats.
 Gradually change to a finer file to clean the surface. Finally, remove the sanding marks with a whetstone and put it in the fireplace. When the temperature rises, check the movement of the knife until it is placed in the tank.
 So far, there are no obstacles in the way. Normally I wouldn't worry about it because people around me know what I'm doing, but this time there are two visitors. But this time, there were two visitors. If a hot knife were to hit them, it would be a big problem.

I'm going to put this in the tank now. It's very hot and dangerous, so please don't move from there.

 I called out to Lija and Deepika. They were shaking their heads vigorously.
 I looked back at the fire and saw that it had reached just the right temperature. I took it out of the fireplace and quickly put it into the tank. The steam rises with a sizzling sound.


 The two fairies cheered when they saw it. This is the most glamorous part of the knife making process. I waited for the temperature of the knife to drop to the desired level, and held it over the fire again.
 When the temperature rises a little, move it aside and wait for it to cool down naturally.

 Suddenly, I noticed that the fairies were standing there without moving. It's not safe, but the most dangerous part is already over.

It's okay to move now. This is still hot, so don't touch it. I'm sorry, I didn't realize.
"No, no, no.

 Deepika waved her hand.

"So this is what a human blacksmith does. ......
Yeah. Are the fairies different?
Apparently. I've never seen them work, so I don't know much about it.

 Deepika replied with a slightly troubled look on her face. I wonder if there is a secret of the fairy race. On the other hand, it may be that the technology for such things is not developed yet. In any case, I am interested.

If you have a chance, I'd love to see it.
Yes, I would. But she's so difficult. ......

 I chuckled. It seems that craftsmen and fairies are no different in their eccentricities. Now, when it's cool, I'll wrap the handle with leather and finish it. The scabbard will be inconspicuous and will be made of the same material that we usually use, so there is no need to make a new one.
 The wedding gift is now complete. I'll deliver it and the ring tomorrow.

"Oh, I see. I'll see what I can do.

 At dinner, Samija asked me, "What are you two going to do while you're in town tomorrow? What are you two going to do while you're in town tomorrow? I couldn't leave them here alone, just in case.
 But I was the only one who could leave someone behind. If I leave anyone else, there's nothing I can do in case of an emergency. But considering the fact that I'm delivering the goods, it's not good if I'm not there.
 But I can't just take them both into town. .......

 As I was groaning, Lijia raised her hand.

Oh, um, ...... can we go with you?
Are you sure you're okay to go?

 If you could come with us, that would be great, but you're even rarer than the elves. You never know what might happen.
 Lija nodded.

Yes. We can disappear for a while.

 As she said this, Lija's figure gradually faded. Eventually, only a faintly glittering, blurred image of Mr. Lija remained.
 I know Mr. Lija, so I can recognize him as a fairy, but if you don't, you'll probably only be able to recognize him as "......", which looks like a little sparkle in the space.
 When I said that, Mr. Lija was surprised.

"You can see it?
"Only vaguely. It's the same as not being able to see at all.
"It's amazing that you can still see!

 Is that so? When Lija and I were puzzled, Liddy said.

You're completely blind to the power of magic, Eizo.
"Haha, I see.

 In addition to the blacksmithing cheat, I have the ability to perceive magic power, which is (probably) essential for making things that are out of the ordinary in this world. The fairies have strong magical powers, so they can see.
 It seems that I can't erase that part.

I don't think there's anything to worry about, because it will look completely empty to normal people.
I don't see anything. ....... I can see where they are, though.

 Helen teased at Liddy's words. Ms. Deepika looked at her suspiciously.

It's just a hint.
You got me.
Yeah, that's right.

 The table was filled with laughter as I made my point. If you think about it, it's pretty amazing to be able to tell by a whiff.

 And so, the two fairies were off to the city. Although I knew they would be fine, I couldn't help praying that they wouldn't cause any problems.
