Day 348


ED/TL by BluBear~ It's good to go!



Day 348


The frontier and neighboring countries of the Holy Kingdom are gradually beginning to act.


The shock of the "Legendary Defeat in the Holy War" rushed through, and the faction that was lurking in the darkness of the chaos began "crawling like a worm". (ED: it was either this or "peristalsis" for maintaining the original meaning, please bear with it X) )

I will express it as such, as it will take more time to grow into a bigger fire. Now, I think that a small ember is glowing.

I will leave things at Holy Kingdom at that for now. For today, after morning training, I decided to take my children hunting in the Great Forest.

However, already the monsters living in the Great Forests aren't a threat.


I can get away with an encounter just by lightly waving of an arm, and my opponents cannot even tear a thin piece of skin even if attacked with my defenses lowered while receiving a full force attack.


On the contrary, if we do not assimilate the surroundings to the extent that we do not notice even if we are in front of our eyes, it is in a state where one insect is gone.


Although the children have not reached that level yet, they can easily slaughter a group of Hind Bears by themselves, with only slight margins of going sideways.


Nicola being the only exception. I cannot allow myself to come in contact with any kind of danger, because I'm also carrying her piggyback with a golden thread's cord.


(ED: Ovabou is talking to his children here, below. As he gave his children their weapons, he refers to those as gifts)

Therefore, even if I say it's a hunt, do not use any of your usual gifts today.


The only gift we have this time is the bow and arrows that the elves made.

Use this to hunt monsters while hiding signs of your presence.


Although there's a sense of hunting by only wielding a bow & arrow, but hunting is not the only purpose of being here.

There are many points to learn other than pure battle, such as finding traces that can be created when wild monsters pass, making their own traps using plants found in the Great Forest, identifying things that can or cannot be eaten.

Children and later generations are educated through various forms, but still tend to be biased toward crude combat.


Here we also incorporated field training, as their ability to survive when isolated is at a level that is still worrying for me as a parent.


Knowledge is put in, but whether it's practicable is another problem.


So as the time presented this opportunity, let's take advantage of it by actually taking the lead.

And in case anything happens, I decided to come back to the base at dusk, but the hunting outcome went well.

Fourteen "Double Horned Rabbit", carrying a bigger body and wielding two protruding horns shaped as if the corners of four horns were put together to create two horns.


Eight higher-species of animals "Black Iron Armored Tanuki", which were darker and harder versions of Armored Tanukis.


Six birds of the higher-species "Poisonous Cocco", which could be described as purple Big Coccos, that could give birth to eggs every day in the base.


Twelve senior high-ranked colorful "Filled Up Rainbow Bat" which were bigger in size when compared to the Seven Colored Bats, as well as having more colors.


In addition, I was also able to do plentiful amounts of things.


This was somewhat nostalgic, but it seems that the slightly different prey found shows vividly that the Great Forest is growing.

I triumphant delivered today's hunting results to the sisters, and gave a hand with the cooking, while being guided by Meal Hero.

I thought that it might be delicious even from the smell stage, but if you were to eat a bite, it proved itself far more delicious than one could imagine.

Everything was delicious, but the one I liked in particular was Black Armored Tanuki's steak.


What is being used is the meat from the back right under the hard crust, so that it is softer than other parts used to absorb impacts, yet it is thick or thicker depending on location.


Such meat is made to pass much better through fire as a whole, it is made medium rare to enjoy the difference between the red middle of the half life and the burned surface, and if it wasn't enough already, the sisters' special made demi-glaze sauce is put on top of it.

Overflowing in one bite is its rich and mellow taste. Even after eating it, there's a strength to its taste, in a way that you are able to perfectly describe it after leaving your mouth.


As I eat this dish cooked by skilled hands and the accumulated knowledge, honestly, I wonder whether its deliciousness is able compete with Red Bear's place at the Great Forest, this is really nostalgic.

And with the teachings of Meal Hero, our sister's cuisine came to improve by this much, I must say I'm expecting a lot more in the future. If we used the dragon meat which is a far superior ingredient this time, it most certainly will be close to perfection.


*Munch* *Munch* *Munch* *Munch*, while eating the black crustacean knobs with fried chicken, I try my best to honestly describe my impressions.

Yeah, good delicious food sure is nice.


However, there's a possibility of ascending as this is just too delicious... I wonder if that would be ok?


(ED note: hahahaha Rou is so funny, he's seriously considering dying just to enjoy eating his share >.< )

  “三百四十八日目”

 聖王国の辺境や周辺国が徐々にキナ臭くなり始めている。

 『聖戦にて【英勇】敗れる』の衝撃が駆け抜け、その混乱の中闇に潜んでいた一派が蠕動を始めたのだ。


 などと表現してみるが、まだまだ大火になるには時間が必要だろう。今は小さな種火が灯った、と思えばいい


 聖王国の事はさて置き、今日は朝の訓練の後、子供達と共に大森林で狩りをする事にした。


 といっても、既に大森林に生息するモンスター達は脅威ではない。

 俺は軽く腕を振った余波で薙ぎ払えるし、全力の攻撃を無防備に受けても薄皮一枚破れない。

 それどころか、目の前に居ても気がつかないほど気配を周囲に同化させないと、虫一匹居なくなってしまう状態にある。

 流石に子供達はそこまでには達していないものの、単体でハインドベアーの群れを余裕で屠る事が可能だ。

 ニコラだけは例外だが、黄金糸のおんぶ紐で俺が背負っているので怪我する事などありえない。


 だから狩りをすると言っても、普段のように愛用の得物は使わない。

 今回俺達が持つ得物は、エルフ達が造ってくれた弓矢である。

 これを使い、気配を隠しながらモンスター達を狩っていくのだ。


 弓矢で狩りなど今更感があるかもしれないが、別に狩りだけが目的ではない。

 野生のモンスターが通った際に出来る痕跡を見つけたり、大森林にある植物などを使った罠を自作したり、食べる事の出来る物やそうでない物の見極めなど、戦闘以外に学ぶべき点は多い。


 子供達やそれ以降の世代は、様々な面で教育はしているものの、やはり戦闘面に偏りがちになっている。

 野戦訓練なども取り入れているが、孤立した時に生き残る為のサバイバル能力は親としてまだ心配になるレベルである。

 知識は入れているが、実践できるかはまた別問題という事だ。

 だから時間がある今を好機として、引率して実際にやらせてみるのだった。


 そして何やかんやとあって夕暮れ時に拠点へ帰ったが、狩猟成果は上々だ。


 ホーンラビットの角を二本にし、身体をより大きくした“ダブルホーンラビット”を十四匹。

 ヨロイタヌキを黒く硬くしたような上位種の“黒鉄(こくてつ)ヨロイタヌキ”を八匹。

 毎日拠点で卵を産んでくれているビッグコッコを紫色にした上位種の“ポイズンコッコ”を六羽。

 カラフルなナナイロコウモリを大型化し、もっと色を追加した上位種の“ジュウナナイロコウモリ”を十二匹。


 その他にも色々と仕留める事が出来た。

 どこか懐かしく、しかし少し異なる獲物達は大森林が成長している事を如実に表していると言えるだろう。


 意気揚々と今日の成果を姉妹さん達に渡し、飯勇に指導されながら調理された品々に手を出した。


 匂いの段階から美味いのだろうな、と思っていたが、一口食べれば想像以上の美味だった。

 どれも美味しかったが、特に気に入ったのは黒鉄ヨロイタヌキのステーキだろう。

 使われているのは硬い甲殻のすぐ下に備わった背中の肉で、衝撃を吸収する為か他の部位よりも柔らかく、それでいて鍛えられているのか肉厚だ。

 そんな肉が全体的に程良く火を通し、半生の赤い中央とシッカリと焼かれた表面の違いを楽しむミディアムレアにされ、姉妹さん達特製のデミグラスソースをかけられている。


 一噛みで溢れるのは、豊潤な味だ。肉の旨みを余す事無く、食べたモノに伝える力強さがある。

 熟練の技や蓄積された知識によって調理された今回の料理は、正直、大森林産で食べた中では、今では懐かしくすらあるレッドベアーと一、二を争う美味さではなかろうか。


 飯勇の教えによって姉妹さん達の料理がこれ程上達するとなると、今後はもっと期待していいに違いない。今回よりも遥かに上等な食材である竜肉を使えば、更なる極致に至れるに違いない。

 ポリポリポリ、と黒い甲殻の唐揚げもツマミながら、素直か感想を述べてみる。


 うん、やはり美味い飯はいいもんだ。

 ただ、美味過ぎて昇天する可能性が出てきたのだが、大丈夫だろうか。
