After finishing morning practice, the three of us came upon some kobolds while out hunting.
This time, there were three of them, two of which were equipped like the earlier two with armor and longswords and the last one had a short bow and a quiver.
While thinking “Is this the second day in a row to strengthen Gobumi-chan?”, I checked the surroundings for additional enemies in order to make a decision.
With it being all clear, I chose to commence the assault.
With the kobold that could attack from range with the bow and arrows having a higher threat level compared to the others, a sneak attack with a poisoned stone from Gobumi-chan's staff sling was the decisive action.
The poisoned stone hit the bow wielding kobold right in the eye, which caused it to lose its usual composure and vision.
Not wanting to waste the chance that the other two kobolds were in a panic, Gobukichi-kun and I moved to defeat the two Kobolds who wielded longswords that looked slightly better than the ones we got earlier.
My longswords might be worn out, but for my current body, they're just the right size. I've also gotten used to my body, so separating the kobold's head from his body was relatively easy.
The horn I used to kill the kobold we met earlier is like a knife for me now, that's why after I obtained these swords I was able to kill this kobold much easier than the one before.
Gobukichi-kun violently broke all of his opponent's bones. It was a little grotesque.
Gobumi-chan, with the pseudo-knife made of the obsidian-like ore I gave her, slit the bow wielding kobold's throat and gave it a finishing blow.
Apparently, Gobumi-chan's evolution direction lay in brains and speed. To use weapons cleverly, intelligence is needed after all.
After that, we worked hard at disassembling the body. We collected the armor, Gobumi-chan got the short bow and the quiver and I took the slightly better looking long swords for myself.
Because there was no suitable loot for Gobukichi-kun, he will have to wait till next time.
While these Kobolds sadly didn’t have any [ Fire Spirit Stones ], my collection of small bags increased by three.
One I kept for my own use, and the other two I gave to the other two for putting medicinal plants in it. Now, if something were to happen, I’m sure they will be of great use. Each goblin got one body to eat.
I didn’t get any new abilities. However, I felt that with just a bit more, I’d gain something new and the ability that I already had, [Predict], got slightly stronger. [Predict] lets me see my opponents' attack trajectories as red threads, so in battle it can be incredibly convenient.
After that, we hunted whatever we came across before we returned to the cave in order to sleep.
