I managed to catch 9 field mice.

According to the adventurers, a large number of snakes went berserk.

Perhaps that was why a large number of field mice in hiding moved around.

9 field mice caught with 30 traps were quite more than I expected.

It was a joyful miscalculation.


Then, for some reason, there was one living snake caught in one of the field mice traps.

The moment I saw the snake, I quickly ran away, but I wanted to sell it for some money.

I found a ripped but sturdy bag in the dumpster.

I fixed the ripped part by sewing it with threads.

I put the bag on the top of the trap and slowly pulled the bag down to cover the trap inside.

Because the snake showed its head from the trap inside the bag, I quickly tied the opening firmly with a rope.

The snake moved around in the bag noisily, making me scared.

Because I used a basket last time, I had a peace of mind…but this time, let’s sell it immediately!

I left the field mice for later and walked quickly to the village’s drugstore.


In the village, adventurers were drinking together joyfully and boasted about what happened yesterday.

Seems like they will start the subjugation again from this evening, so let’s hurry up.

I feel sorry for Sora, but it will have to spend another day inside the bag.


“Excuse me.”


“Hmm? Ah, it’s the lad.”


“Are you still taking in snakes?”


The subdued snakes were weak so I can’t use them.
The number of snakes will decrease after the subjugation and I won’t be able to get good ones, so I’d like to get them while I can.”


The bag was rumbling because the snake was rampaging inside.

It was very scary.

I took the bag to the shopkeeper while keeping the bag away from my body.

The shopkeeper laughed a little seeing me.

Even if I was laughed at, scary things were scary, so I couldn’t help it.


“Today’s snake is also lively, huh.”


The shopkeeper nodded once after peeking into the bag.


“You are a good hunter, lad.”


“Eh! That’s not the case.”


“Is that so? A lot of other adventurers brought in quite battered snakes.
I can’t make good medicine with them.
But the snakes you brought were lively so I can make good medicine.
I am as happy as I can be.”


“Thank you.”


I’m glad that I can be useful.


“Two gidall for you.”


“Thank you.”


I took the money and left the store.

I broke into a smile.

He said he was as happy as he could be…was that a compliment?

But I was glad.


I returned to the place where I collected the field mice with a spring in my steps.

I took Sora out from its bag and gave it today’s portion of potions.

There were 9 of them, so dissection would take some time, but I managed to finish before the sun started to go down.

I heard that there will be another subjugation today, so let’s move to the village quickly.

I looked at Sora…it was sleeping, doing things at its own pace steadily.

I put Sora inside my bag and returned to the village.


The adventurers entered the forest in turn.

Somehow I made it in time.

I was about to go to the butcher shop after the adventurers had all gone.

…I wonder if the shopkeeper is in?


“Excuse me.”


I opened the door and peeked in nervously.


“Oh, it’s the lad, do you need anything?”


I was glad that the shopkeeper was in.


“I’d like to sell some field mice, is that okay?”


“More than that, I’m actually grateful, these days everyone but you are focusing on the snakes.”


I gave 9 pieces of meat wrapped in bana leaves to the shopkeeper.


“A large amount again, huh.
You’re an amazing lad.”


“Thank you.”


“And the meat is in good condition! I’ll give you 1080 dall.
Due to the snake subjugation, I can’t get meat so I raised my buying price.”


Then I’ll leave it to you.”


“I always need more meat since the number of snake increases.
Selling and buying price remained high.
And yet adventurers immediately complain when the price of dried meat increases.
I have to thank you who brought in some meat, lad.”


I took the money and headed to the square that was prepared for adventurers.

…Ah, I forgot to buy some dried meat for my journey.

Was I too happy because they thanked me?

But I was so happy nonetheless.
