Day 17

I woke up early and went to the interior of the cave. The captured women were all dead. They were laying on the ground without moving as if they were asleep. From the look of things, it seems like the girls drank a poison and died in their sleep. From where did they get that poison? that's a mystery. Truly, a mystery.

After recovering the small empty bottle that was laying close to them as evidence and storing it inside the bag hanging from my waist, being the one who discovered them, I went to report to Gobujii.

Gobujii hurriedly rushed over, and cried bitterly in front of the limp pseudo-goblins that spilled from the beautiful girls' wombs grieving their death, however, I couldn’t care less.

For the girls' corpses, I took responsibility for their disposal, and because it was a pity to just let wild animals feed on them, I decided to cremate them. As payment for my labor, I took the hearts, stomachs, breasts, and uteri.

Since the [Pyrokinesis] ability I got the other day wasn’t enough, I collected a bunch of [ Oily Grass ] to make it burn well and twigs to maintain the fire.

After using my [Pyrokinesis] to ignite the fire, I prayed for the girls' souls whilst looking at the pillar of blazing flame.

"Namu Amida Butsu".

Among the girls, there seemed to be those with adventurer skills. Quite a lot of them of actually.

This group of travelers may have been unexpectedly strong. They might only have looked weak because they were captured.

Ability [Human Language] learned

Ability [Continental Letter Deciphering] learned

Ability [Mental Mapping] learned

Ability [Job-Magician] learned

Ability [Job-Light Swordsman] learned

Ability [Job-Druid] learned

Ability [Job-Craftsman] learned

It’s unusual of me, but I didn’t feel the slightest inclination to learn about my new abilities. After morning practice, I sent out Gobukichi-kun and Gobumi-chan to go hunting since I wasn’t in the mood. Then, I tried making shell-based shields, armors and swords from the materials accumulated to this day.

Lately, crafting has become somewhat of a hobby of mine…

Ah, it seems my new ability [Job-Craftsman] became useful immediately.

The goods I crafted came out a lot better than before. The ability, like its name implied, corrected the mistakes.

Speaking of which, the shield and armor came out successfully while the shell-based sword ended up in failure.

As for my meal, Gobukichi-kun and Gobumi-chan shared a part of what they hunted, together with the tribute that increased due to yesterday's training.

Ah, this might be a bit late, but Gobumi-chan had also Ranked Up into a hobgoblin today.

She has became quite cute, it was intimidating. The difference from when she was a goblin is remarkable.

Because her old equipment is now too small for her, I lent her my spares.

She made a subtle expression, happy while unsatisfied, so I decided to make her brand new equipment at a later date. Truth is, I would have happily made it today, but there wasn't enough time.
