71-Progress of each floor Part 2
「あらま. もうかい？ えらく早いね」
There were plenty of underwear and everyday clothes that I wanted to make.
But for now, I had to rest my hands and do what I had to do first.
The women stretched out and strolled to the bone-shaped stove.
"Now that we've done our work, shall we treat the masters to a nice lunch?
"Yes, I'm sure they'll come back very hungry.
On the eighth floor, in a corner of the Great Tree Corridor.
The goblins laughed happily in front of the pile of earth that had risen firmly.
This small pile of earth near the wall is actually a charcoal kiln.
Under the guidance of Ethan, who had experience in charcoal making, nearly twenty goblins had worked together to build it.
The grass around the kiln had been pulled out to ensure that the fire would not spread even if it did.
The kiln was not the only thing we built.
On top of the large tree that the fairies had used as their home, several burrows were also found.
Some of them were small, but most of them could be made into magnificent rooms if they were cleaned and the insides cut down a little.
A rope ladder made of woven vines now connected them, giving the appearance of a housing complex.
There are also plans to build huts on top of the thick branches, and it seems that the living area will continue to increase.
As the goblins danced around the charcoal kiln, a large demon approached stealthily.
It was a branch-antlered deer, second only to the boss wolf in size on the eighth floor.
But for some reason, there are multiple vine baskets hanging from its wide spread horns.
Furthermore, on its back, fairies gathered like small birds were resting their wings comfortably.
The antlered deer, which had now become a vehicle for the fairies, lowered its head and dexterously placed the baskets on the ground.
The contents were freshly harvested mushrooms.
"Gee hee hee!
The goblins jumped on the baskets with evil laughter, selected the mushrooms, and headed for a small cooking stove built next to the charcoal kiln.
A small tortoise shell was already placed on the fire as a pot.
The goblins threw mushrooms into the pot, which had been stocked with torn dried hare meat.
The delicious scent of the mushrooms filled the air, and even the elf lovers of mushrooms spread their wings in unison.
Their bellies growling, they fly around the pot.
One of the goblins, who was still rifling through his basket, let out a reproachful laugh.
It was because he hadn't found the blue fruit he was looking for.
As the goblins stomped their feet in frustration, a fairy landed lightly on them.
Then, reluctantly, she pulls out a piece of green tangerine fruit from her pochette.
The goblin's eyes glistened with anticipation, and he opened his mouth wide, almost to his ears.
The fairy almost drops the blue berry, but just as she is about to give in to temptation, she snatches it into her own mouth.
The sound of laughter, like the ringing of a bell, echoed through the trunk of the great tree.
Tenth floor, near the central lake.
It's time for the upper levels to start their lunches.
We were sitting near the shore, watching a huge monster flying around on the water.
Four large wings that move so quickly that it's difficult to catch with the eyes.
They have large eyeballs that never miss their prey, and sharp jaws that instantly identify them as predators.
Its long belly is as sharp and flat as a sharpened blade.
In fact, its abdomen seems to be able to cut through anything.
The name of the insect with the sword-like abdomen is the sword-tailed dragonfly.
It is a vicious demon that is as long as a large species and has tremendous mobility at the same time.
"Wow, that looks really bad!
I'm not sure what to make of this.
...... This looks like a tough opponent.
The area around this water source is ideal for a base of operations, but it's no good if there are large, carnivorous insects like that around.
But when I saw Etan's concern, I lifted the edge of my lips and said.
No, thank you very much. Those dragonflies are very useful.
