372-340 Gargoyle (4)

"What's wrong?
No, something doesn't ...... fit.

 A crystal ball about 30 centimeters in diameter, I took it down from its base and tried to put it in my magic bag, but it felt like it was repelling me and wouldn't go in.

"Really? I'll unroll it for you.
Thank you. Thank you. ...... Oh?
It's floating!
Yeah, ...... what is that?

 You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few of these in the marketplace.

 If you let go of the bag, the crystal ball will seem to float in that state and .......


 The crystal ball slides across the surface and almost falls off, but you hold it tightly again.

"...... What do you mean?

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

I think only Haruka, Nao, and Yuki can figure it out. ......

I'm sure you'll be able to find something that you can't put in your magic bag, right? This means...

That's what it means, right? It's not supposed to hold humans or anything like that. ...... Is it because it's a magic bag? I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not.

 If it is a magic tool, attribute steel is also a kind of magic tool, and even magic tools found in dungeons are carried around using magic bags.

 I don't think that's the cause.

I think this is a collapse of the magic bag theory.
"I've never heard of that theory. But I see your point.

 The Magic Bag is the foundation of our adventuring.
 It's the reason we make so much money.

 If there are many things we can't carry with it, we're in trouble. .......

...... No, there was something you couldn't carry in your magic bag.
You know that, Haruka?

 In the event that you've got a lot more than one, you'll be able to get a lot more.

What's that, .......? I'm sure even Toya knows that. It's a magic bag.

"Magic bag ......? What's that? We're talking about something that doesn't fit in the Magic Bag.

Magic bag. ...... Oh! Magic bag!

 In the event that you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find out more about it here.

You can't put a magic bag in a magic bag, can you?

 I had completely forgotten that the Magic Bag had such a limitation.
 I had forgotten that the Magic Bag had such a restriction, though I hadn't thought about it recently.

I forgot about it too! But this crystal ball is not a magic bag, is it?

"It's not a magic bag, but it won't fit. It's not a magic bag, but it won't fit. ...... So you're saying it's some kind of space-time magic tool?

I don't know, but it's possible, isn't it?

That's true. ......

 I don't have enough information to be sure, but I can't say I've come up with anything.
 I think I should just leave it to the professionals.

"Okay. I'll bring it back to the guild. Then we'll know what we're dealing with.
Yeah, that's a good idea. The only problem is, we don't have a proper container. ......

 Our backpacks are all magic bags, so of course we can't put them in.

 For example, if you have a magic bag for large items, you can stick it in a pocket on the outside of the backpack or tie it with a string, but you can't do that with a crystal ball.

I do have a leather bag that I reserve for sorting materials. ......

 These leather bags are designed to be put into a magic bag with things inside, so there are no strings attached to carry them, making them difficult to carry.

 If I had known that there were some things that would not fit in the Magic Bag, I would have prepared a regular backpack, but now it was too late.

If that's the case, Mitya and I can carry it. We're the ones who have the least problem with our hands being full. Is that okay? Mee.

Yeah. Of course.

I think we've both had enough of this for one day. ...... Are you okay? It's pretty heavy, you know?

Yes, we'll take care of it.

 In the event that you have any kind of questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site. Especially since Mitya is still so small.

 But if it's just bare muscle strength without magic, Mary is probably the second strongest among us, and Mitya is pretty good too.

 I'm not sure what to do.

"Then, please. You have a thick leather bag, right?

 I'm afraid it will be slippery and scratchy as it is.

 Choose a thick leather bag, spread it out on the ground, carefully place the crystal ball in it, and tie the mouth tightly.

"Mitya, are you okay?
I'm fine! But it's a little hard to hold. ......

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm not sure what to do.

 Unlike Mary, she is a bit overwhelmed with her large crystal ball.

I'll be back as soon as I can, so do your best, okay?


I'll be back as soon as I can. And gargoyles.

By the way, you didn't check the gargoyle's body. It might be shattered, but let's take a look.

 It's unlikely, but we split up to examine them, and we succeeded in recovering intact magic stones from three of them.

 The only ones that didn't make it were the three that were heavily damaged by the Explosion.

 It was unexpected that the gargoyle that Toya dealt with gave him a magic stone, but I guess it was different from a mere golem.

 After checking the boss room one last time, we opened the door at the back and proceeded onward.

...... Yeah, this is it.

 The familiar room was also the small room that Natsuki and I had found last time.

 It's the usual room after the boss room, but this time we've already emptied the treasure chest, so unfortunately there's no reward for the first kill.

Now that we've filled up the transition point, shall we continue on to ......? This passage will take you outside, though.

 I don't know if I should say outside, but at least we can escape from the basement.

 No, to be precise, I think it's underground too, but you can see something that looks like the sky, so it feels open.

Of course you have to go back.
Of course. Of course. I knew it.

 When we talked about the forest, he seemed interested in it, so I just asked him if he wanted to see it.

"And I'm curious about the jewels, too! Aren't you curious?
"Yes. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't curious about what kind of gemstone it was.
Oh, that. Well, I'm also a little curious about how much it'll sell for.

 --You'll sell it, right?
 I'm not going to say that Halka and the others don't want to sell it, right?

 I'm not sure how much I'm going to get for it, but I'm sure it'll be worth it.

I don't think I've ever seen anything like it.
It's not "Oh, yeah", Toya! It's very important!
Oh, yeah. I get it, I get it, so don't come at me.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what's going on in your life.

 This is a great way to make sure that you don't end up selling ...... your products for a while.

Okay, let's go home. It'll be fun.
Okay. What do you think it will be?
I'm gonna make some accessories!
I want to eat good food.
"You're a girl, you should be more interested.

 Haruka and the others, smiling happily as they talked about this, walked lightly to the transition camp.
 And Toya and I followed them with a wry smile on our faces.
