83-073 Treatment and demolition

Nao, any reinforcements?
"None in range.

 Hearing my reply, Haruka let out a sigh of relief.

I'm relieved for the moment, but I'm going to hurry up and collect the two materials I left behind and deal with the orcs here. We need to be faster than polite.

 I don't think there's any demon that's going to snatch our prey, but it's not good if the orcs notice us.
 I understand the need to hurry, but ......

I'm sorry, but can you fix me up first? It hurts. I can't even take it apart with my arm.

 I shouted a little pathetically, and held out my broken left hand.

"Nao-kun! Are you okay?
"I'm fine, but it hurts.

 I'm not sure if the adrenaline was pumping during the fight, but I didn't feel that much pain, but after it was over and I calmed down a bit, the pain started to throb.

 I've had broken bones before, but I've never had an arm so spectacularly bent from a point that was clearly not a joint.

"Come down here now! You can't fix it.
That's what I'm trying to tell you. ......

 How do I get down? Jump? I'm pretty sure that's going to hurt my arm.
 It's a little too high for me to go down with just my right arm.

Here, let me give you my shoulder.
"Oh, I'm sorry.

 I put my feet on Toya's shoulders, who came to the bottom of the branch, and carefully descended to put my feet on the ground.
 A sigh of relief. But the slightest movement hurt.

This is what a perfect break looks like~

 Toya looks at my arm curiously. It's not something you see very often, but...

Toya, if you have time for that, fix Nao's bone in the right position.

"What, me? I don't know much about that. ....... Can't you fix it like this?

"It seems to be more reliable and faster to reposition it. Touch your own arm for reference.

 In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find a lot more information on the web. I'm not sure what to do.

I'm not sure if there's any magic to help with the pain or not.
I don't know. I don't know. You can cry, but you have to be patient.
No, I'll be patient. ......

 In the past, when I had my cracked bones corrected without anesthesia, it hurt so much that my eyes went blank. .......

I'll do it. I think I know the bone structure better than you do.
"Oh, really? Then, please.

 The one who came forward was Natsuki. Toya easily gave up his place, but for me, Natsuki was still better than Toya's fearlessness.

So, Natsuki, please.
Okay. You can cry if you want.
No, I'll hold back.

 No, I'll hold back." Natsuki smiled mischievously, and I clenched my teeth as a man.

You're right. Haruka, are you ready?

 After confirming that Haruka nodded, Natsuki gently put her hand on my arm.
 And the next moment...


 In a flash, Natsuki's hand moves, the pain pierces through me, my eyes flicker, and tears flood my eyes. He manages to keep his voice down, but he can't stop the sweat from breaking out.

 A moment later, the pain rapidly receded, and my arm, which had turned an unpleasant color, straightened up and regained its original color.

Were you okay?
Oh, ...... Natsuki, you're relentless, aren't you?

Slowing it down will only prolong the pain. You know you can fix it, so the less pain, the better, right?

...... There's no denying it.

 You can't deny that the pain will not be relieved just because the bones are slowly repositioned.
 I know this in theory, but I can't possibly imitate that skill and determination.

"Natsuki, you're amazing! I can't do that, you know.
"Yeah. Really. Considering how fast you heal and how much magic you have, you must have gotten it back to almost perfect in an instant.
I've been crunching martial arts for a while.

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it, but I'm going to try.

 However, there is a limit to how much the healing magic can compensate, and if a poor magician heals a broken bone, it may be slightly bent and connected, leaving a disability.
 In that case, you'll have to break it again and then ask a higher-ranking healer to do it for you,......, which gives me chills.

We'll be safe with Natsuki! The problem is, if Natsuki breaks a bone...

"...... Haruka or Yuki, I'll teach you and you'll learn, okay? Otherwise, in case something goes wrong, I might slip up?

 Then he looked at the two of them and smiled at them. Her smile is very powerful.

"Yes, yes! Of course I will! Please teach me when you have time. I'm dying to learn!
I'd better learn it too. I think I should learn it too, since Natsuki and I are the only ones who can use light magic.

 Haruka nodded slowly to Yuki, who shook her head.

 But both of us are smart enough to learn quickly. I think we should refrain from participating. It's not going to be about the female skeleton or anything s*xy, but it's going to be embarrassing.

Well, Nao's in a bad way, but let's take her apart. Now that the fracture is healed, let's get you to work.
I'll take care of it.

 It's bloody and dirty, but it'll get dirty again when we dismantle it, and I can live with it if I think Haruka's purification will clean it up.

I'm not sure what to do with it. I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how to do it.

 I guess the division of labor is that I, who can spot enemies, Haruka, who can dismantle quickly, and Natsuki, who has the best strength, will quickly dismantle the orcs near the nest, while the remaining two will stay here to watch for demons that are after the corpses.

 We moved quickly, Haruka in charge of one orc, and Natsuki and I in charge of another, dismantling them.

 As you can see, having dismantled more than 10 orcs, I've gotten used to the process, and I'm making pretty quick progress.

But this makes me want to get a magic bag that can hold a whole orc. That way, we won't have to dismantle them in dangerous places.

"Wouldn't the bag have to be as big as a container bag that could be carried by a crane? We haven't even succeeded with a backpack yet.

 "You can't do that, can you? But I've been thinking about it a little too.

"If you think about it only as a way to move your prey around a bit, with a wide mouth but a very shallow bottom, and if you only add 'light weight' and 'extended space', it might work.

"Is that so? Then let's give it a try. We can sew the bag ourselves.

 As expected, there are no bags with such a special shape available, so we'll have to make our own.

I think leather would be better. I think it would be better if it were made of leather, because it would be more like spreading it out on the ground and putting things on it, rather than holding it and putting things in it.

 At least, you can't use it to lift an orc and shove it into the bag.

 Looking at the situation after the battle, if we spread out a bag made of linen on the ground as we usually do, there is a very good chance that a fallen tree branch will make a hole in it. At the very least, I would like to use a strong cloth bag, and if possible, a strong leather bag. It will cost more, though.

Embroidery sounds like a lot of work, but let's consider it.
I'll help you. I'll help you. I recently got my sewing skills.
Natsuki has always been good at sewing. Okay! I'm done, what about you?
I'm done, too.

 The carcasses that had been dismembered and arranged on the skin were thrown into the bag, and the remaining offal was abandoned in the area. Roll up the skin and put it in the bag, and the work is done.

 At first, I thought the dismantling of meat was disgusting, but lately I've come to see it as meat, so the work is fast.

Let's hurry back then. Any enemies?
None so far. Not even orcs.

 There must have been a fair amount of noise from the battle, but no Orcs have approached to check on us, which is honestly helpful, but I wonder if they don't hear us, think we're okay, or don't have the brains to send reinforcements.

 When we returned to Toya and the others, the two of us were almost done with one orc each.
 The rest were six orcs and the orc leader. We split up and proceeded to dispose of them.

 All of them had the [Dismantle] skill, but the fastest was Haruka, who had reached level 2. The rest of the team members are not too far behind, but Toya is a little faster with his strength.

 Haruka takes care of two of them while we take care of one at a time, and then we proceed to dismantle the orc leader.
 The structure itself is not difficult to dismantle because it's only a couple of sizes larger than ......, but it's quite difficult.

I need a big knife, like a tuna knife.

 Yes, the blade length of the dismantling knife is too short. Aside from removing the skin, it's hard to cut the meat with the knife, because you have to insert the blade many times.

"Do you want to use my sword?

 I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how to use it.

It has almost no blade at all.

 I'm not sure what you mean by that.

 It would be better to have a Japanese sword, but it would be too delicate for actual combat.

 You can use it to avoid all attacks and not to fight with each other, or you can use it to cut through the enemy by avoiding hard parts, or you can use it mainly for thrusting. .......

 If you are in a Japanese battlefield, you may be able to replace the sword you have taken from the enemy, but there is no way you can do that in a battle against demons. It is not always possible to take time to clean the sword after each battle, and unless the sword is a magic item, it would be impossible to use it on a daily basis.

Since I have a magic bag, I might as well buy a long demolition knife. I'll just have to make do with this one.
"Right. To be honest, it's hard to get the fat off.

 The meat is so thick that you have to repeatedly insert the knife, pull the meat, and insert the knife again to cut it. It is not easy to cut the meat, because the thickness of the arm alone is as much as one arm.

I'm not sure if you can use ...... wind magic to cut it in a snap.
I'm not sure what to make of it.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will work for you.

Haruka is the only one who can use water magic now. I've got a few qualities, though.

You can use it to cut hard objects, but it's not really for cutting thick objects. I don't think it's suitable for cutting thick objects.

 Water cutters used in industrial applications in Japan are designed to cut materials by spraying water or a mixture of water and particles under high pressure.

 They have the advantage of cutting hard objects without heat generation and without the disadvantage of blade wear, but they are not very practical for cutting objects one meter away, for example, considering the air resistance.
 Unless, of course, there is some magical effect that causes water to constantly accelerate without spreading.

At least for the purpose of dismantling, it would be much better to prepare a variety of blades. You don't have to carry them around anymore.

You're right. I should have bought one. It was a bit of a hassle with the orcs.

 The blade length of the knife had been a bit of a problem when dismantling Orcs, but since one person could dismantle no more than one at a time, everyone had been able to work without complaint.

 This time, however, Haruka had already dismantled three orcs by herself, and this orc leader was the last one, so it was not hard to understand her frustration.

"Well, we're almost there, so let's work hard.
"Yeah, sure.

 Despite his complaints, Haruka's hands didn't stop, and even with five orc leaders, it didn't take long for the carcasses to be transformed into meat and all disappeared into the magic bag.

 The remaining hides looked tougher than normal orcs, but there were quite a few puncture wounds on the legs made by Natsuki.
 I wondered how this would affect my evaluation, but there was no way I could tell Natsuki that his death was wrong.
 His life is more important than a little bit of money.

"Okay, it's done. Well then, let's retreat quickly. At least not from orc territory.

「「「「 Oh (yes) (yes) 」」」」
