428-396 The moon (1)

What's with the ......?

I heard that newborns inherit their immunity from their mothers. I heard that the effect lasts for about six months.

 Normally, newborn babies are not susceptible to diseases due to the effects of the inherited immunity.

 Later, as the effects of the mother's immunity wear off, they gradually acquire their own immunity through illness.

I mean, I never had Gresco's fever, so Al was ......".

 Natsuki nodded ruthlessly to Yasue, who was even more bloodthirsty and white.

It's a possibility. In the event that you've got a lot of money to spend, you'll be able to take advantage of it.

So, we're okay, but not the kids.

Well, doesn't that mean we're not all in this together?

Yes. There is a difference in levels, so we can't make a simple comparison.

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

 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

 If possible, I would like to check with Adverstice. ...... If you throw in a lot of money, can you see him again?

 But that's for the future, right now it's Yasue's child, Al.

I'm not sure what to do. What should I do?

"First of all, you should use the Recovery Slumber to reduce your physical exhaustion and increase your recovery power. The downside is that we can't let her sleep as long as an adult, since she'll need to nurse frequently.

 If the baby is an adult, he can sleep for a whole day and eat only once a day, but this is not the case for a baby who nurses frequently. If the baby is not woken up and nursed at appropriate intervals, he will not be able to recover due to lack of nutrition.

 As Yasue cringes and holds Al's hand, Natsuki reaches behind her and casts a spell, causing Al's breathing to become slightly calmer.

Oh, thank you, .......

No. I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it'll help.

So, Natsuki, what should we do?

The best thing to do is to get the medicine. I'm sure Chester and the others have gone looking for it, but ...... it's not going to be easy to find.

"Why? It's a common enough disease that anyone can get it, right?

Yes. But the medicine is not cheap, and 80% of the diseases can be cured without doing anything. As a result, only rich people and aristocrats who don't want their children to suffer would use this medicine, and I don't know if any stores around here have it in stock. ......

So, what do we do now?

It would be more practical to make them ourselves.

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

I'm not sure. I had a pharmacy!
I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you. But the problem lies not in that, but in the material.

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

 However, magic and pharmacy are different.
 No matter how skilled you are, you cannot make medicine without materials.

 It seems that most of the ingredients can be bought without any problem, but one ingredient, the key ingredient of this potion, is almost certainly not sold.

It's a flower called obtusia. Without it, it's impossible to make the medicine.
So, what is it? So what? We're supposed to find that flower?
Are you going to help us with ......?
We can't just abandon the baby. Right?
I know. You don't abandon a stranger, but you don't abandon Yasue's baby.
Oh, thank you. I'll pay you back at .......
Don't worry about it. If you won't be hostile, I'll at least give you a hand.
"Oh, my God!

 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, but I'm sure you'll do fine.

Ovania is an underwater flower that blooms in beautiful water. Unfortunately, we're not familiar with this area, and we don't know where it blooms. So, Nao-kun and Toya-kun, please go to the guild and gather information.


It's unlikely, but Yuki, please check the alchemy stores in this town to see if they sell it. I'll go to the stores that deal with medicine related materials. Haruka, please stay here and apply "Recovery Slumber" as needed. If she doesn't drink her milk, she will become weak, so keep it short.

"Understood. In case of emergency, should I use the Treatment?

...... It's a difficult decision. As I'm sure Haruka knows, the treatment can deplete the patient's own energy, which may not be good for old people or children with low energy.

Does that mean they'll die if they can't take it anymore?

Yes, Yasue-san. I think she will be fine for a while, but if her condition should suddenly change, Yasue-san and Chester-san should make the final decision on whether to use magic to cure her. Don't leave it to Haruka.

"...... I understand.

 If you're thinking about curing yourself with magic, it's preferable to do so while you're still physically strong, but if you cure yourself with magic, you won't gain immunity and you'll contract gresco fever again, and there's a high probability that we won't be around when that happens.

 On the other hand, if we prolonged the process to the limit, he would be too exhausted to be cured by magic.

 It's a tough decision to make, and Natsuki told her to make it as a parent, and Yasue nodded slowly and responded in a hushed voice.

Of course, I'm going to do my best to avoid having to make such a decision. Let's hurry up.

 With those words from Natsuki, we started running.

"Ovnia, huh? It's the season of Gresco fever, isn't it?

 When Toya and I went to the adventurer's guild and asked, Ketra nodded in agreement.

"Do you know about it?

"Yes. Most of them can be cured by simply resting, but rich people sometimes ask for them. In that case, it would be an urgent request, which would be very profitable and helpful for the guild.

No, this time, it's a little ...... physically demanding. I'm not sure what's going to happen even if you have magic assistance. ....... Do you have any information on this?

 When I lightly explained the situation to Ketola, who smiled at me with an expression that seemed to say that I was being overprotective, she changed her expression and bowed her head.

I'm sorry, sir. I'll go check it out right away, so please wait a moment.

 He left the counter and I waited patiently for about thirty minutes.
 When he came back, his expression was cloudy.

"Thank you for waiting.

How did it go?

Unfortunately, as far as we can tell, there is no record of any Obunia collected in the area being delivered to the guild here.

I see. ....... So you're saying there's no place in the vicinity of this town where obvnia can be collected?


 Not at all, but that's to be expected.
 It is more difficult to prove that something does not exist than to prove that it does.
 But Ketola's words did not end there.

"Do you know what kind of environment Ovnia grows in?

They grow in clean water, don't they?

"Yes. Yes. In return, I've researched all the places in the area that have clean water.

Oh, thank you very much. Can you tell me about it?

Of course. One place is the Petras River, which Nao and the others know. That river has cleaner water than the Noria River to the east, so there's no chance of Obunia growing there.

 That river.
 The water was indeed clean, but that place is inhabited by monster eels, right?
 Ovnia is a grass that grows at the bottom of the water. ...... Do you dive?
 The other is the Petras River.

The other place is a forest just beyond the Petras River. I don't know if it's true or not, but I've heard that there was a beautiful spring there. I'm sorry to say that I'm not sure of either of these facts. ......

 Ketra bit her lip in frustration, and I shook my head.

No, thank you. I don't have a lot of time to gather information.

"Right. I'd rather have inaccurate information now than accurate information that could take days to get.

"I'm sorry. If you can make it to Laffan, you might want to ask Diora. He has a lot more information than I do.

"I see. ....... Thank you very much.
