General Store - Part 1

PreviousTOCNext

S, so tired……
I drink tea which has become cold again……
N, yosh, well then, well then.

 

Now then, let’s go shopping!

 

「Now then, I would like to go shopping now, but? Who will come along with me?」

When I stand up and say such……
Three people stand up from their chairs at once. Shien, Iris…… and Elm……
Eh? Ivar is…… not going?
Ah…… Ivar got…… dragged away by Sapin……

 

Un…… do your best……

 

Let’s ask the well-informed Elm here. What kind of store they have, I wonder?

「Say, Elm. I heard they have a store that sells many things here. Let’s go there first?」

「Mirei’s General Store?」

「Right! General store! I’m looking forward to finding out what they have」

「Well…… from magic stones to medicinal plants, they have various things……」

「Magic? Stone?」

「They are obtained from magic beasts. Lumps of magical power, I would say?」

「Umm…… I didn’t want to buy anything like that, but……」

「Ah? You have desired things to buy?」

「Anyhow, I heard they have everything. I would like a kitchen knife and a chopping board. Also ingredients, or rather…… seasonings……」

「Kitchen knife? Same one chefs use?」

「U~n…… I wouldn’t go that far, I would like a kitchen knife that suits into my hand. When I consider that I will continue cooking from now on, I’d like a proper kitchen knife. I want to buy one for Iris as well」

「You want one?」
「Ha? Iris doesn’t need it, right?」
「Eh? Mine? No, no, I don’t need one」

Well! Shien, Elm, and Iris, what are they saying! Even though a proper kitchen knife can be used for many things. Well, thick bones would be impossible, though. Anyhow, a kitchen knife is necessary for the beginner Iris! Also, it would be nice to find something like a peeler……

U~n…… while thinking, Iris asked me in panic.

「Koyu-sama? I really don’t need one」

「Ara, didn’t Iris say that you will practice cooking? In order to not get injured, rather than knife a proper kitchen knife would be better, you know?」

「A kitchen knife would be better? Even if you say that, I wouldn’t be able to handle it……」

「It’s fine. I will teach you」

「Ye…… s……」

Anyhow, I will be teaching Iris how to cook, so we will get a kitchen knife! I tell the three.
Also, seasoning is needed, right? I made covers for cushions, so I need stuffing, don’t I? I can’t keep on replacing it with clothes…… right?
Right, right, I also want tea and take a look at ingredients.
I’d like to buy Iris clothes too……

 

What? I’m being stared at, though……

I, I’m going?

 

Leave from the inn and walk straight…… was it? Un, I’m sure I’m not wrong.
Tetoteto while walking. Un…… there’s a store. Umm, it’s a store, right?
When I look back at Elm,
「This is it, right? General store? Umm……」

Yeah, in front of the store…… vegetables are lined up…… moreover, it’s unmanned……
The sun has already risen.
The sun is shining, you know? Why is it like that……
Umm…… the street stalls in the capital? I was in before weren’t this messy……
Ha? Furthermore, it’s placed directly on the ground? The nice vegetables! Why don’t you at least place them on a woven mat?
There’s no roof either, so at least somehow make a shadow……

「E, e, l, m? Is this common over here?」

「Ah, no…… it wasn’t like this before…… I, I, th, ink……」

Ara, Elm considers it strange as well?
Un, I’m glad this isn’t normal. I would rather refrain from buying these vegetables……
Mate are crushed flat, beans and eggplants seem to be withering. Even though they looked so delicious in the fields……

 

「Mirei! Mirei, are you in?」

Elm opens the door of the store and shouts. Of course, he’s avoiding the vegetables.
Un…… you wouldn’t want to step on them.

「Fua~i…… who……」

I hear a voice from inside. It’s a very sluggish…… female voice……

Elm opened the door, but…… he’s not going inside, huh. I made a gesture telling him that I will be staying outside……
It’s visible from behind the door. Un, it’s not possible to enter, isn’t it? So many things on the floor……
Eh? Is this a trash house? I have seen them several times on the news in my previous world before……
Perhaps! Do you have to search for what you need through a large amount of trash? Umm…… I wouldn’t want that.
Definitely not! They are ingredients, you know? They are necessary! In that case, wouldn’t it be better to negotiate directly at the field?

 

The inn was normal. The chapel was also normally clean.
The field was wonderful!

The general store is……
