l our stay.
I’m sure they’ll at least kind of understand if we explain the reason.”

We buy food and healing potions, and check if we have everything we need to camp.
If anything is missing, we have to buy it.

Healing potions are surprisingly expensive, but I guess they’re cheap if I think about it as buying things that might save my life.

We buy monster repellent too, but we’re not planning to use it.
We’re taking it with us just in case.

As for food, we buy things that will keep for a while, and since Rurika and Chris have simple cookware, that’s what we’ll be using.
I just have to buy tableware for myself.

We still have some time after we’re done, so we go to the training area.
This time, Chris is doing some exercise too, but suffice to say, most of the time she’s just watching.

We don’t spend a lot of time here, because we don’t want to be tired tomorrow, and leave after agreeing to meet up early tomorrow in front of the gate.
I’m going back to the inn with some bruises again today.

 ◇ ◇ ◇

“Hm… It’s a great morning to leave the city.”

Rurika is already fired up.
Isn’t she going to be too enthusiastic and get tired on the way?

“Oh, are you going out today?”

Says the gatekeeper, as he looks at our camping equipment.
I nod, show him my guild card, and exit the city.

We’re not going to get lost walking near the main road, but I don’t see anyone else going in this direction.

According to Rurika, since the forest where the wolves appeared is in the same direction as the village, people are avoiding going that way unless they really have to.

Still, the wolves are deep in the forest, so there’s little chance that they’ll come this way.
It’s in their nature to live in the forest, so they’re not coming out unless they have no food or lost a turf war.

We walk along the road without any problems or really anything noteworthy.
We just keep walking silently as the scenery in front of us doesn’t change.

Having that said, as we slowly walk away from the forest where the wolves are, I feel relieved somehow.
Rurika says it’s fine, but I can tell she’s cautious too.

We don’t push ourselves too much, and take several breaks as we walk.
It’s also important to keep ourselves hydrated.
We have to be careful, since if we keep walking on our first day because we don’t feel tired, that’s going to have an effect later.
That’s what Rurika says.

I don’t feel tired no matter how much I walk, but that only accounts for the physical side.
I do feel mentally fatigued.
In particular, I feel like the nervousness I feel about being with two girls is intensifying as we get further away from the city.

Yes, to be honest, I’m not used to being with girls.

Rurika is so frank and open, that I don’t feel too nervous around her, but Chris is different.
I don’t know if she’s not used to being around boys, or if that’s just the way she is, but she always talks to me like she’s shy and like she’s constantly stepping back.
I can’t help but picture a coddled young lady from a rich family.

It kind of makes me feel self-conscious too.

Rurika looks at me and nods like she’s making fun of me, but at the same time like she’s saying she understands.

Ah, and I also have my wooden sword with me, and I’m being trained hard during our breaks.
