Looks like the subjugation was finished in two days.
I heard they could finish it in a short time because a lot of adventurers participated.
As expected, the snake outbreak was quite bad.
I saw the subdued snakes when I left the village; there were quite a lot of them.
…I wonder if it was actually dangerous in the forest?
I have to be more cautious.
I bought some dried meat and left the village.
If the subjugation was finished, the village road should be somewhat safe.
I’m heading to the next village, Latom from today.
Somehow, there were a lot of surprise in Latoto village.
Meeting Sora and taming it, seeing what Sora eats and the amount it eats….
I was also surprised about the amount of money I got from selling snakes.
Ah, but there were also a lot of joyful things.
I also befriended Sora.
I looked at Sora, bouncing in my arms.
It does things on its pace, but it’s cute after all.
As for joyful things, of course the butcher and the drugstore’s shopkeeper’s words.
I couldn’t keep myself from grinning.
I’m so happy! I’m so happy!
I’m grinning even when I recall it now.
Even though I need to calm down because calmness is necessary during a journey.
I took a deep breath and calmed down.
All right, let’s go to Latom!
The sixth day after I left Latoto.
I came across a few monsters, but the journey was mainly okay.
However, I was worried about Sora’s food…I only had five more.
I wonder if I will soon reach the next village, Latom?
What is it? I smell something burned.
Is something burning?
I stopped and checked my surroundings.
Sora in my arms was bouncing more violently than usual.
I didn’t sense any presence of monsters or humans, but I sometimes overlooked people with thin presence like adventurers.
I watched and checked around while walking.
Should I moved away from the village road?
As I walked along the village road while hesitating, I could see a place far away with smoke around it.
…I got nervous and my body grew stiff at this unusual situation.
As I approached gradually…I found a box-like thing sending out smoke.
And there was somebody collapsed in the shadow.
As I approached with caution, I watched my surroundings.
I didn’t sense any hidden presence.
I looked at the collapsed man and immediately covered my mouth.
The collapsed man was already dead.
I could see gouged out marks in his body.
I can see marks like being scooped out with something.
And there were some footprints of battle left around the area.
I concluded from the footprints that there were perhaps several people involved.
Because there is a possibility that this was a robbery, I put Sora in the bag.
Sora is a rare slime, so it may be targeted.
I was sorry for the dead man, but I couldn’t do anything about him.
I left him as he was, and moved away quickly while watching my surroundings.
But I could see a horse carriage a little down the road.
I stopped and took a deep breath to calm down.
As expected, I didn’t sense any presence.
As I approached the horse carriage, I found several dead bodies, all of them badly wounded.
A horse lied down a little far from the village road, but I knew it was dead.
Apparently, it was attacked by monsters instead of bandits.
Bandits don’t kill horses, and their wounds weren’t caused by swords.
There might be violent monsters around here.
The wounds of the dead were too severe.
It wasn’t the first time I saw someone dead by monster attack, but I was a little shocked.
I should better leave here soon.
I left the horse carriage quickly.
After a while, I realized that I was running and stopped.
I was less cautious when I run.
I might overlook any monster presence.
I took several deep breaths, and finally calmed down.
“Ah…I was surprised.”
I wanted to sit down, but I couldn’t do so here.
I walked quickly towards Latom village while cautiously searching for presence around me, and after a while I could hear some kind of sound.
As I listened nervously, turned out it was human’s voice.
Adventurers? Traveler? Merchant?
I approached the sound while watching my surroundings.
“Ah, it’s Latom village.”
I knew I had arrived in the village due to voices of the people.
I relaxed my body with a sigh of relief.
For the time being, I have to report to Latom village office that I found some dead bodies.
T/N : OK I know Latom is the ‘Amen’ in Fire Force but the author really named the village ラトム haha.
