32-028 Baptism of the Other World Again

"Hmmm, subtle?

 With four beds, the room is about the same size as the Bear of Slumber.
 The windows are small and the room is rather dim.

 The room looks a little larger because it is not furnished at all, but I don't think that's a good point.
 In other words, the room in "The Bear of Slumber" is better overall. It's less than half the price.

Which do you think it is, that the inn is not good or that the prices in this town are too high?
Hmmm, at least the inn is expensive, huh? Well, at least the inn will be more expensive?

 Considering its origins, the inn is not a place to stay for long, usually a day.
 Even if you are waiting for the weather to improve, unless you are very unlucky, you will probably be leaving in a few days.

 If you think about it that way, it may be inevitable that the prices are higher than those of hotels in Laffan, where people tend to sign long-term contracts.

Prices are based on ....... It's not that expensive if you use shipping or river transport?
Either way, it's not a good place to be based, this price.
Yeah, fixed costs are important.

 I totally agree.
 Even if the cost of living is only 500 Reais more per day, it's still not an insignificant amount if the number of days increases.

No, wait! Haruka, Nao. I haven't tried the city's cuisine yet. Maybe it's good?

 But I looked at Haruka and shook my head.

Even if there's a small chance that the food is good, it's not good here.
The size of the guild makes it obvious that there is no work here.
Ugh, that's true. It's not like they're going to buy the boar we hunt in this town.
It's because of our money and the population of Rafan.

 Whether it's medicinal herbs, meat, or dingdol, the demand is greater than the supply, and that's why we can get a good price.
 If you think about it, it would be pretty tough to make money based in this city.

No, that's not the point! I'm not sure what to tell you right now, but it's about Yuki and the others.
The moment Nao entered the room, she said 'delicate'.
No, it's the price that's bothering you. That's not what I meant!

 We almost got off track again.

Yeah. It was easier than I thought, wasn't it? I thought it would take a little more effort than that. Hey, Haruka?
It's not a good thing. As for me, I feel much better knowing that you two are safe.

 It's a good thing that I'm not the only one who feels this way.
 Although she didn't say it until she had more time to think about it, the fact that her two best friends were missing must have been quite distressing.

Of course I'm happy for you. Of course I'm happy for you, but I'm going to do my best to find them! "Of course I'm happy for them, but I'm a little sad that I'm spinning out of control.

"Well, I guess it's luck, but in a way, it was inevitable that they were found here.
"Hmm? Why?

"First of all, I was thinking of two patterns. One is that you've formed a party with some other classmates and are living as adventurers.

 A pattern like us.
 We're not classmates, we're just childhood friends.

But to be honest, I thought this was unlikely. It's too risky to team up with only girls, and there's no other boys you two can trust.

 You make it sound as if Natsuki and Yuki are the only ones, but when it comes to male friends, I guess that's true.

 This is not because of Natsuki and Yuki, but for most girls, there are not many male friends that they feel comfortable living with all the time.
 It's no wonder that in a different world where there are no police, there are some guys who will get out of line.

 No, in fact, there definitely are.
 There are people who say, "I got skills, I'm going to be a harem of Tueeee! Especially Natsuki and Yuki.

 Natsuki and Yuki are especially cute, but they are also very dangerous.
 Considering the fact that you'll be going into the middle of nowhere for a mission, you can't afford to team up with a bad guy.

The other pattern is that he lives and works in the city. When I researched this town, I thought that if they were working, it would be as a waiter in an inn, but it turned out to be exactly that.

"Hmm. There's not a lot of other work out there, and with their looks, it's not a bad job.
...... Ah, is that what this inn is all about?

 I'm not sure what to make of this.
 I'm sure you'll be able to understand why the clientele is extremely skewed towards men.

Hmm? I'm not sure what to make of that.
Was it because Haruka was there?

 Haruka is as good-looking as the two of them.
 You don't have to choose an inn just to see a pretty girl.

No, if anything, it's because they're all different species. There's nothing against it, but there's not a lot of interracial marriages, for what it's worth.
"...... Oh.

 We are originally human, so we didn't care about it at all, but just in case, Natsuki and the others are different species, right?
 I'm not sure how much of a difference there is in perception, but I guess it's like how we look at foreigners?
 ...... or more?

Well, that's good. What about lunch? The bottom of the page is ...... full, so you can either just order and eat here or go out to eat. Of course, you could always just get some dried meat.

"No dried meat at the inn, either. I'd rather eat the food at the inn. It's not like it's gonna be bad with all those people there, right?

Yeah. That's fine with me. We're in a different city now.
Really? Shall we order?
Yeah, let's just go with Haruka and me. Toya, just give us a recommendation.
Yeah. You never know what you'll find.

 The cafeteria on the first floor was just as full and noisy as before.
 Yuki was busily serving in it.
 There were two other girls working as waiters, but I guess the reason why so many men approached Yuki was because she was cute.

I'd like three servings for lunch, please. I'll eat upstairs.
"Yes, thank you! Hold on a second!

 I didn't dare to talk to the serving girl, so I ordered to the lady at the counter who was in charge of cooking.
 It's the same at the Bear of Slumber, but the food in this kind of cafeteria is freshly prepared, so it comes out relatively quickly.
 Haruka and I waited for a little while to see how Yuki was doing.

"...... Yuki, you look good.
Yeah. I think she's lost some weight, but she doesn't look like she's been hurt.

 He smiled, but I'm sure he's in a lot of pain considering how busy and unfamiliar he is with life.
 But he doesn't seem to be injured, and he doesn't look too bad, so I guess he's managed to get by.

Yeah, ...... good.

 In the event that you have any kind of questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at the web site.
 It doesn't look that tasty, but it is ...... unsettling.
 Soon, three plates of the same food were lined up in front of us.

210 rare for three people!
"...... Yes.

 It's still a bit expensive, but Haruka pays it off and picks up two of the plates and heads upstairs.
 I took the other one, and when I returned to the room, Haruka was handing the plates to Toya.
 This room doesn't even have a table, so it's a little awkward for eating.
 I had no choice but to sit on the bed.

So, what's this ......?

 Toya's face was a little delicate.

"This inn's recommendation?

 He said, "It's a good choice," and I guessed he wouldn't have chosen a bad one.
 Many of the guests were also eating this.

 When I looked at the plate again, I found two slices of fried carp-like fish.
 There was a bowl of some kind of green vegetables pickled in vinegar.
 Two pieces of plain black bread.

 And a slurry of brown paste.
 No, it's just like "sludge".
 Honestly, it doesn't look good.

"No, no, I can't evaluate it without eating it, right? See?

 I'm sure you'll agree with me," he said, but Haruka laughed and shook her head.

As usual, I think you'll be betrayed. ......
No! I don't know yet! I'm not sure yet! --I'm not sure what to do, but I'm going to start with the cheapest tile.

 I'm not sure what to make of it.
 He claims to have fried it in a big pot, but I can imagine the taste from the look of it, and it's not going to be that bad.
 I followed Toya's example and started on it.

This is what I mean by 'muddy'!

 It's probably a fish caught in the river there.
 The river fish I've eaten so far include ayu (sweetfish), yamame (mountain trout), and in some rare cases, sashimi of amago (fish).

 If I had to categorize them, I'd say "haze" and "eel" are also river fish.
 Either way, they are all quite tasty, and I have never felt any muddy smell.
 This fish, on the other hand, is quite "tough".
 If you don't try hard enough, you'll get an "oops" feeling.

...... It's also badly cooked. If you want to grill it with salt or meuniere, go to ....... No, I think you should grill it with salt. Or fried?

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but I think it's a good idea.

 There may or may not be a herb-like odor-eliminating agent, but the salty taste makes the smell more pronounced.

 The only good thing about it is that it does not take much time to cook. I guess that's it.

"Well, not yet. It's not over yet! This is next!

 Despite the damage, Toya stubbornly thrusts in another cheap tile, pickled vegetables.
 Yeah. I guess there's a limit to how bad this can taste.

 I'll take a bite.

"...... It's bitter!

 Is this a stem of some kind?
 I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's a good idea.

 If you can put up with the stringy taste, you can eat it, but I don't think I'd buy it.
 Toya is just gulping it down at .......
 The stringy part stays, right? This.

"Mmm, gum, gum. --It looks like a mine, but it's actually a mine! sometimes. I'm not giving up!
"No, let's just give up, okay? This "sludge" is a mine, no matter how you look at it.

"No leftovers! I'll eat it!
I'll eat it! - Who the hell are you?

 I'll eat it!" "What kind of person are you?" "I'm the one who's going to go along with you," I said.
 I'll try to lick a little on my fork.

............ What the hell is this? What is it? Bitter? A little salty?

 The taste is hard to describe.
 To be honest, it's not very good, but if you try hard enough, you can eat it.

"This looks a little like Marmite. It looks a bit like Marmite. Since we have ale, why not?
"Marmite? What's that?

It's a paste made from brewer's yeast. It's a paste made from brewer's yeast. It's eaten in England, but it's not very common. It's not very tasty.
Do they really eat this stuff? "Why do you eat this? Why do you eat it?

 Toya, who had been looking very reluctant, said with a look of disbelief, but every country has such foodstuffs.
 Even natto has a taste and smell that's hard to describe in a way.
 If you don't use any sauce, it tastes bitter or something. ...... Recently, there are many kinds without any peculiarity.

I'm sure people who like it will like it. Also, it may be good for your health. Brewer's yeast itself has been sold as a supplement in Japan. But in pill form.

 Just as sake lees have a lot of nutritional value, beer yeast has a lot of vitamins and is good for you.
 I don't know which one has more nutritional value, but I'm pretty sure it's the sake lees when it comes to taste.

So, Toya, what do you think? I don't think I need to eat the black bread.
"...... I lost!

 Toya bowed gracefully, and I smiled and shrugged my shoulders.

No, it's not about winning or losing, but I don't think we should use ...... this city as a base.
I agree. It's not like there aren't good places to eat, but the high cost of accommodation is critical.

 It is possible that there are cheaper lodgings in the area, but Haruka says that with all the lodgings in the vicinity, there is unlikely to be an extreme difference in price.

 Of course, there might be some cheap lodgings in the back streets, but I can't think of any reason to stay in this town.

 We should retrieve Yuki and Natsuki as soon as possible and return to the city of Raffan.
 We agreed on that idea, and the rest of the time we just mindlessly cleaned up the dishes.
