In your current state of weakness, a sincere word would be more effective than a lot of unnecessary words.
"I need you!
"............ I understand.
He seemed to understand.
I shook hands with Etan, whose color had suddenly returned, and we shook hands again.
Now I can manage the training of archers.
"Would you be willing to teach archery to the villagers for a while until your instincts return?
"Yes, if that's all right with you!
Thank you very much. That would be very helpful.
Thank you very much." At my words of gratitude, Mr. Etan smiled at me as if a flower had just blossomed.
We left the house on the outskirts of the village and met up with the usual group at the tavern.
On our way to the underground labyrinth, we decided to take a look at Heimo's workshop.
This one was built near the river, probably out of fear of fire.
It is a one-story building, but it is open-plan, and there seems to be no concept of an entrance.
In the earthen floor with a roof, there was a large furnace, and water buckets and an iron floor were placed around it.
In the midst of all this, Heimo was lying down, snoring loudly.
There were three more goblins clinging to his sides and between his legs.
Empty wine barrels and wooden plates were lying around the forge, indicating that they had spent the night drinking.
As I watched, the goblins shivered and snuggled up to Heimo as if they were hugging him tightly.
Even though it's already February, it's still cold.
The cold air on the ground seems to be quite unbearable for the evil fairies born in the labyrinth, where the temperature is always kept at a constant level.
Until they got used to it, Gobbledygook was always sticking to Yoru and Kuu.
I was going to ask you what you want to do today, but I think I'll let you sleep in.
I was going to ask you what you were going to do today, but I guess I'll let you sleep in." Even when Yoru and Kuu smacked him on the forehead, he showed no signs of waking up.
The blacksmith, wrapped in a goblin futon, seemed quite happy.
Today's members were Yoru and Kuu, both astride blue slimes.
The usual two, a beastmaster and a mage, plus the village chief and his wife, Karina, who had returned as healers to be on the safe side.
Then there are the four villagers who are trying to level up.
The absence of Yoh and Gobbler, who were fishing for us, slowed things down, but we still made it to the fifth floor in an hour and a half.
Of course, don't forget that I've already subjugated three fairies on the fourth floor.
When we entered the goblin village, the goblins came pouring in.
When they see that Heimo is not there, they all let out a disappointed laugh.
Uncle Heimo. Heimo's uncle.
It seems that he was surprisingly popular with the people, or rather with the goblins.
Using the hump he had acquired along the way, he handed the black wolf fur he had tanned to the goblin in the leather processing team.
It's time for you to make some leather armor.
"Are you sure?
"Good for you, dear. I'll put my best foot forward.
Of course, I'll do the same for you, Karina.
Oh, me too?
While the couple was taking measurements together, I went to check on the potatoes.
They don't seem to be making much progress.
"Hmm, it's going to be tough to level up with just a horned rabbit.
It seems that Yoh and Gobbler have done their best, but the caterpillar with only a cannot stop them.
This means that they have little experience to gain, and they have to work in numbers, but they can't do that because they move too slowly.
Well, they should have sprung up by now. ......
At this point, I one of the fairies and asked Yo to take its place.
Without a seasoned fisherman, the sixth floor and beyond will be tough.
With three fairies fishing for crabs and turtles, I ascended to the tower on the seventh floor to earn experience.
Thanks to them, the two that were level 14 became level 16 in about two hours.
On the eighth floor, I decided it was too early to go deeper, so I collected mushrooms near the stairs and filled in the map.
Each time we found a new cluster, the fairies were excited.
We also managed to hunt a couple of antlered deer, so we took it easy and headed back to the village.
Well, let's keep adding more and more fairies at this rate.
