Day 28

Day 28

Maybe it was the weeping, getting tired, then going to sleep, but she seemed to have more or less recovered. Perhaps her mental adaptation was simply that fast, but when I went to check on the girls in the morning, the Redhead greeted me cheerfully.

The other four still seemed afraid of me, but that couldn’t be helped. Time is required to have them come to an understanding. Among the stolen goods that came with them there was a cooking kit and some ingredients, using those I made a pseudo-stew for them.

Well, having my first civilized meal in a while really made me happy. It might be self praise, but the pseudo-stew really tasted good.

Eating is absolutely essential and the more delicious the food is the better, because delicious food can heal even mental wounds. After eating, I saw that the girls calmed down and began to lower their guard. I asked them to tell more details about them, I wanted to know if there is something they are good at, it seems they also wanted to do something to repay me.

By the way, I forgot to mention it, but except for the Redhead, the other four were holders of [ Job - Peddler ]. The one with a fuzzy atmosphere around her held [Appraiser], as well as [Blacksmith], she said that she'll polish the blades of our weapons and if I can arrange better facilities for her, she promised that she would forge equipments for me.

The two girls who looked similar turned out to be sisters, and they both held the jobs of [Tailor] and [Cook], so I arranged to have them be in charge of cooking and making clothes in the future. As expected, I couldn't ask them to make clothes for the goblins who killed their friends and acquaintances, so I told them to make clothes just for themselves.

As far as making food for everyone, I told them to just put up with it for now. I want to eat delicious properly cooked food after all.

One of the women that looked like a cool-type intelligent beauty held the job [Alchemist], so I asked her to make potions for us. I should have someone supervise them in case they try to serve poisoned food, when I warned to not do that, they got scared, I wonder why?

The Redhead is capable of doing farm work, but speaking bluntly, that’s useless for me now, so it was decided that she would be participating in the morning training from now on to get stronger. The women had to be able to protect themselves, particularly in situations like the one they were in.

After eating, we would have proceeded with training if we followed our usual schedule, however today was different. We were gathering all our belongings in preparation to move out of the cave. If you're wondering why, after the older generation returned the cave became too small for everyone.

Until now, most of the goblins who were newly born died quickly, however, that changed with my generation. That’s why we were moving to the orcs' former mining base. If we relocated there we would have no more problems with space, and since it’s a mine it had been reinforced to prevent collapses, so it was really sturdy. Also, I wanted to collect as many [ Spirit Stones ] as possible.

I sent out Gobukichi-kun with a group of ten goblins to act as an advance party. The rest of us completed our packing and left an hour later. There were a lot of workers and backpacks, so we were able to move immediately.

Escorting the human women were Gobumi-chan, Gobue-chan and a few who I could trust for this matter. The walk took over an hour, then we finally reached our destination.

It seems like some orcs were wandering around the mine, however, Gobukichi-kun's group had already killed them. I received their hearts, and the rest of the orcs were split between the members of the advance party as a reward. After that, we entered the mine arrange living quarters.

Since we didn’t have many decorations, I just had decide the storage places for weapons and food, then I arranged the sleeping areas of the goblins quickly. Of course, I didn’t forget about the toilets too.

When I finished with constructing the general layout, I left the rest to Goujii to arrange and started to construct the living quarters of the human women. Luckily I had my [Earth Control] ability so the work was easy. I quickly finished the Blacksmith’s smithy, the Sisters’ kitchen, the Alchemist’s workshop and lastly their sleeping area, I made a bed for them by making a wooden frame of a bed then wrapping my threads around it. It’s a somewhat simple bed, but as it was wrapped with multiple layers of my threads, it was fairly comfortable to sleep in.

The [ Spirit Stones ] were used for drinking water and light sources so those weren't a problem, as for the [ Spirit Stone ]s' supply, they can be easily mined in this mine. The Blacksmith also said that with some time she'll be able to forge simple things using the [ Spirit Stones ]. Thus, we spent the rest of the day cleaning up and doing routine tasks.

The food was prepared by the Sisters. As expected of those who possess the [Cook] job, it tasted really good.
