Information fee for the tree monster was five gidall, a silver slab.

The monster seemed to pose as a fruit bearing tree in order to lure people.

A few years ago, it slipped in near a village plantation and caused some damage.

One could escape from it because it was slow, but as soon as its prey escaped, it would pose as other tree around it.

Furthermore, because it was able to imitate a tree’s presence, it was difficult to find.

The young lady told me it was a troublesome monster.

The guild would request for middle-ranked adventurers and above to subdue this monster.

The man who was listening to the story with the young lady stared at me curiously.

I tilted my head and stared back at him.


“But you did well to recognize it was a monster.
It is hard to recognize that monster.”


“…I did that accidentally.”


“Is that so? But it’s good to notice before it causes any damage.
If it appears while nobody notices, certainly it will attack some people.
It really looks like a harmless tree until you are close to its attack range.
Villagers and beginner adventurers will suffer some damage.”


Yes, I suffered some damage.

Because I couldn’t say I had near death experience, I laughed and glossed over it.

I got information fee because it was a monster that would harm the village, but because it could be subdued by 2 middle ranked adventurers, the fee was 5 gidall.

Since it was enough for me, I thanked both of them and left the office.


I left the office and headed to the dumpster.

It should be alright now since some time had passed.

I ruined one of my clothes, so I want new ones.



I wonder of it was because the dumpster was blocked for 10 days?

The amount of trash in the dumpster increased a lot.

There were also a lot of dumped potions, this was a good thing.

Apparently there were also kids practicing making potions in this village.

Potions in different bottles from the regular ones were dumped in bulk.

Sora was bouncing joyfully.

I picked up a few bottles of blue potion close by and lined them up in front of Sora.

After I confirmed that Sora was eating the potions, I dived into the dumpster to look for things I needed for my journey.

I put more potions in my bag one by one.

Since I was able to find some clothes, I also put them in my bag.

I found some blue potions among the training potions, so I took them all.

There were 38 bottles in total.

When I returned to Sora, who was waiting just beside the dumpster while bouncing, I lined up all of the training potions in front of it.

Sora was bouncing joyfully while absorbing all the potions.

Sora was able to do skillful movement now.

As I stayed next to Sora who was eating and bouncing in satisfaction, I took out all the things I picked up from the bag to check them.

I could wear all the clothes I found if I fixed them a little.

I checked all the potions one by one.

When people throw them away, the bottle may get cracked.

Since cracks in the bottle speed up discoloration, it is important to check for any crack.

I chose some potions with no crack and minimal discoloration.

There were a lot of better potions than those I picked up in previous villages.

Was it because there were many adventurers?

I was as happy as I could be.

I managed to secure a total of 76 bottles of potions for Sora.

A lot of things happened, but I got a lot of things in Latom village.

I put the items back in my bag after I finished checking them.


“Huh?…There is not enough red potions.”


I should have picked up three bottles of red potions, but there were only two here.
Red potions are used for curing illness.

How strange.

Did I drop it?

As I looked towards the dumpster, I found a red potion on the ground near there.

…Did I drop it?

I put it in the bag after I checked for any crack.

I finished my preparation!


I headed to the next village, Latos, together with Sora.

To be honest, I was afraid to enter the forest because I just met such a monster.

But if I want to continue my journey, I must get used to it.


“Sora, please tell me if there’s any danger.”


Sora was bouncing in my arms.

I was a little relieved.

I’m glad Sora is my friend.
