246-222 Education policy?

Well, you made it back this time.

Yeah. I don't know if it's profitable or not yet, but we got some ...... delicious nuts, so I'm pretty happy with that.

 After a while, we returned home, unpacked our gear and sat down in the living room with a cold drink to catch our breath.

 What? What did we do about the boss of the 20th layer?
 Of course we went through it and came back.
 I transferred to layer 15 from in front of the door, and flew to the entrance via magic circle.

 There's a lot of work to be done before the 20th level, such as researching the price of Red Strike Ox's milk and considering selling Strike Ox's milk.

 There's no reason to take on a boss if you don't plan to move on right away.
 In the meantime, the higher your level, the safer you can kill the boss.

 If the boss had been a small fish, I could have killed it easily and returned to the 20th level with the transfer wizard, but considering the Red Strike Ox, it would have been foolish to underestimate it.

 I'd be lying if I said I wasn't curious to see what kind of boss it was, but we didn't have the option to just open the door and take a peek inside.

 In this world of dungeons, you can escape from the boss, just as the boss is not bound to the boss room.

 Well, if the boss is a giant, it seems you can't physically get out of the door.

"It's beneficial from a dietary standpoint, the nut area. Even if it's not profitable.
"Yes. Nuts are delicious.

 Mary and the others loved the various nuts we brought back this time.
 We'll take a break with them.

 The nuts were roasted carefully by Haruka and his team, and tasted much better than the ones we had in the dungeon.

"I've never eaten nuts like this before.
"I've never eaten nuts like this before." "This one is crunchy, this one is crunchy. There are so many different kinds of nuts!

 There are many kinds of nuts around here.

 These are the kind of nuts that children collect for pocket money, so naturally Mary and Mitya had eaten them before.

 However, the chestnuts and walnuts collected by adventurers were usually sold in stores around here, but they were a bit expensive, so they never had a chance to eat them.

 And then there was Birrell and Griffoa.
 We had never seen them sold in Rafan either.

 Of course, it was the first time for Mary and her friends to try them. They were eating them like they were eating too much.


"......, Mary, Mitya. I'm not sure what to say.

 It's not just me who was thinking this, and Natsuki stopped them with a slightly annoyed look on her face.

I'm not sure what to say. What about ......! I'm sorry, I ate too much!

 In the event that you have any kind of questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

I'm sorry. I ate too much ......, but I'll have some more .......

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing.

A ......
I'm not sure what to say. I understand how you feel.
I understand. I understand. When it's right in front of you, you can't help but reach for it. Nuts.

 Haruka smiled at Mitya, who was in tears as she held her retracted hand, and Toya nodded deeply in agreement.

 This is probably our fault.

 We had roasted all the nuts we had harvested and put them on a platter on the table.

 As Toya said, even we, who are more mature than Mitya and his friends and have a certain amount of self-control, can't help but reach for them when they're in front of us.

Most nuts are more than half fat, you know. If you eat too many of them, you'll become a fatty, puffy person.

 Yuki laughed and pecked at Mitya's cheeks, and when she said that, Mitya put her hands on her cheeks and shouted.

I can't have that! I'm going to be a strong adventurer!

 But her eyes are still on the platter of nuts.

 We looked at each other and smiled at the sight of Mitya and Mary, and felt their eyes on us as we put the nuts away in the pantry.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that you like.

"One hand: ......

 At Natsuki's words, Mitya stared at his hand.

 I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's a fan of your work.

...... Me, don't try to force the pile, okay?
"Oh, sister, you're terrible! I don't think so!

 I'm sure you'll be able to understand why.

I don't believe that!" "Mary, you and Mitya should eat the same amount of food on small plates. Do not eat directly from the platter.

"Yes, I understand.

Boo! That's terrible. I want you to believe me!

 Haruka smiles at the disgruntled Mitya.

I understand that you eat too much. But you have to be really careful because there are things that are fine in small amounts but can be poisonous if eaten in excess.

"Right. It seems that even less than ten gingko nuts can cause poisoning.

I don't know.

 When Natsuki nodded and added, Mitya's expression changed to one of concern.

I'm sure you're right. It's a good idea to avoid eating a full meal of these things, no matter how delicious they are.

"Mushrooms are also dangerous, aren't they? I only eat a few, so they're not a problem.

You mean even if they're not poisonous?

Yes. For example, matsutake mushrooms can be dangerous if you eat enough of them to fill you up, right?

 Natsuki nodded to Toya, who looked a little surprised, and gave him an unexpected example.

I'm not sure. I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.
Oh, it's none of the common people's business.

 It's not something you can eat in large quantities, but financially it's difficult to even eat one.
 When I was in Japan, I would have.
 If I had found it in this world ......, I would not have eaten so much.
 If you think about it, it's not a mushroom that you want to eat many of.

So whatever you eat, do it in moderation.
Be careful. ......
Yes, please be careful. We don't mean to be mean either.

 It's like when a child says, "Buy me candy! I feel like a parent who tells a child to be patient.

 I'm sure it's quite easy for you because Mitya doesn't cry out and he listens to you when you tell him. ...... It's tough being a parent.

If you want to collect nuts, we can help you too.

"Oh, I want to help too!

 We both looked at each other, as if we were worried about having eaten so much.

 I'm glad you feel that way, but I'm not sure if I can actually do it. .......

No, even if I say I'll help, it's in the dungeon that I collected the nuts.
Yeah. It's not exactly a safe place.

 It's true that it's easier to collect the nuts with help, but even the demons that appear in the forest seem a bit dangerous to Mary and her friends.

 Even Haruka, who was originally the rear guard, was able to kill them with a small sword, so small fish are small fish, but whether they can be killed by two adventurers is another matter.

 I've trained them, but I don't know how well they can fight. .......

I thought it would be a good idea to give them some real combat experience. ......
No, but then again, what about the dungeon?
If anything, the enemies in the dungeon are weaker. If you can get there, that is.

 I couldn't help but contradict Haruka's opinion, but when I thought about it, it wasn't wrong.

 But when I look at Mary and Mitya's appearance and age, I'm more concerned about whether it's okay to let them fight.

 It may not match our common sense, but they are children no matter how you look at them.

"Toya, what do you think?

"Hmmm, I don't think goblins are a problem. They make good sense, don't they?

What about Natsuki?

Yeah. He is indeed a beast. He has more physical ability than his age would suggest. I think I can defeat a goblin without any problem.

 The basic training is done by all of them, but when it comes to individual weapons, Mary is learning to use a sword from Toya and Mitya is learning to use a small sword from Natsuki.

 If the two of them are fine with it, then there really isn't a problem.
 When the three of them agree, it's almost a done deal, but I look at Yuki.

"Hmmm, you two want to fight, don't you? Then why don't you let them try? I'm sure it won't be fatal if we're here.

I want to do it!

I want to! I'm going to be a great adventurer!

 You're very motivated. Yes, I am.
 You don't know what it's like to be a parent, do you?
 --No, I'm just bound by Japanese norms.

"If you're so sure, I won't object, but what about equipment? You don't have any yet, do you?

 When we train, we basically use wooden swords or our old weapons - weapons made of blue iron and other materials.

 Naturally, the weapons themselves are good, but if you ask them if they are suitable for their bodies, they are not.

 Mary's weapon is Toya's, and Mitya's is Yuki's.
 Both of them have a certain difference in physique.
 Even so, they are able to handle them to a certain extent, probably because of the high physical ability of beasts.

I'm not sure what to do.

 Mary says this in a reserved manner, but the usability of the weapon has a great impact on the battle.

 If you're in the military or in a war situation where you can't afford it, you should probably use standardized weapons, but if you're not, it's safer and more effective to use weapons that are as easy to use as possible.

 If you can't afford it, it is safer and more effective to use a weapon that is as easy to use as possible.

 ...... Hmm? It's a bit of a luxury when you think about it.
 Most adventurers buy their weapons from the weapon shop.

 In fact, if you are a novice adventurer, you can find a good sword in a barrel at a bargain price and buy it.

 Compared to that, the swords we were using were pretty good quality, even if they were a bit out of proportion to our physique.

What do you think, Haruka?
I think you should ask Toya and Natsuki about that.
As long as we don't overdo it, we should be fine.
Yes. I think it's good enough if you're not fighting on the edge.

 The two men looked at Haruka and nodded that it was no problem.
 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'm not the only one.

I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it's a good idea.

You want to make sure you have good armor, because your life depends on it.

It's better if it's as good as ours.

Yes, sir. Yes, but it will cost a lot of money to get the same level as ours. They're growing up, and even if we buy them, there's a good chance they won't be able to wear them soon.

 We don't want them to get hurt, but should we spend a lot of money on something that will only last a short time?

 I don't want them to get hurt, but should we spend a lot of money on something that will only last a short time?

 With so many factors involved, the five of us pondered together, and it was Mary and her friends who approached us with reserve.

I'm not sure how much it is. Our allowance is ......?
"Me, I'm trying so hard to save it! We haven't spent any of it!

 I've been trying to save my money!

I'm not sure if it's possible. I'm not sure if it's worth it.

 Mary and Mitya are treated as family, and we give them some allowance.

 In this world, it's normal to help out at home, you don't get an allowance, and you're blessed just to be able to eat a full meal, so the money we're giving them is probably a lot of money to them. The money they are giving is probably a lot of money from Mary's point of view, but from our point of view, it is a child's allowance.

 In fact, it is a child's allowance for two people who are helping with the household chores.

 Even if it's a little more than a schoolboy's allowance, there's no way a child's allowance can buy something more expensive than an ordinary car.

Ugh, ......, borrowing a little money is not enough at all.
Are adventurers really that expensive?
It's a little expensive, but it's worth it.

 The two of them were shocked, but reality is reality.
 Good things are expensive.

The two of them were shocked, but the reality was that the good stuff was expensive. "Wouldn't it be better if we just gave them armor that ordinary adventurers would use? It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing and how you're going to do it.

"...... That's true too, isn't it? I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who can't help you. We can help you if you're losing.

Yeah, right. Mary and the others can recuperate normally, right?

 Haruka and Yuki nodded in agreement to my suggestion.
 It's easy to forget, but this is the biggest difference between us.

 They were kicked out of the inn when they couldn't make any money, and one mistake could cost them their lives.

 Well, we had the advantage of initial skills.

"Is that okay with Mary and the others?

"Yes, of course. Oh, no, can they buy it?

Yes, at least that much. We started out with ten large silver coins, but I think the reason why adventurers can't succeed is because they don't have enough money to start with and they don't have a leader.

 When I came to this world and saw the rookie adventurers, I thought that they lacked more skills than I imagined.

 I'm sure there are many reasons for this, but if I had to sum it up in one word, it would be "lack of room.

 There are many reasons for this, but I can sum it up in one simple statement: "They can't afford it." Combat skills are an asset, and there is a price to pay for learning them.

 With a few exceptions, adventurers are often the third or fourth sons of those who have neither farmland nor family business to inherit.

 With a few exceptions, it is unlikely that their parents will pay for their education.

 If you have the skills to fight, you don't need to become an adventurer; there are other stable jobs such as soldiers.

 In other words, the only adventurers who have the skills from the start are those who have special circumstances such as uncertain identities like us, those who dare to become adventurers, and those who are lucky enough to have a mentor like Mary and her friends.

 It seems that the children of adventurers do not become adventurers as often as expected.

 In addition, those adventurers who have successfully started a family know the real situation of adventurers well and try hard to stop their children from becoming adventurers.

 We should probably stop Mary and Mitya from becoming adventurers, but unfortunately we can't help them find jobs other than being adventurers.

 But we can't offer them jobs other than being adventurers. But I would like to leave that to your free will.
