Rumors? What rumors?

“You’ve been building a store in the neighborhood for a while now, right? It stands out quite a bit, so word of you being a great magician has already spread.” [Mary]

“I’m not that amazing. At most, I can just cast a spell or two that can be used in day-to-day life. It just so happens that I specialize at construction.” [Ryouma]

“If you can build something that sturdy, you’re plenty amazing. Rumor says you’re also raising a lot of slimes.” [Mary]

“That part is true.” [Ryouma]

“We know… We saw them with my own eyes, after all.” [Mary]

“We saw a great ooze of slimes carrying Ryouma’s stones.” [Kiara]

“You saw that?” [Ryouma]

“It’s a first seeing slimes act like that, so we ended up watching.” [Mary]

“Monster tamers aren’t rare in Gimuru, but they all prefer scary-looking monsters. Oh, yeah. You came here to buy something, yeah? What do you want?” [Pauline]

“I’m looking for some flower seeds and lawn grass seeds. Do you have them?” [Ryouma]

“We do. The price of the flower seeds will depend on the variety, but the lawn grass seeds go for 130 suits a bag. How many do you need?” [Pauline]

While I was wondering how much I would be needing, Pauline-san offered to help out.

“How about showing me the store? I could advise you then.” [Pauline]

“Thank you.” [Ryouma]

After saying that I led Pauline-san to the store. Leni, Kiara-san, and Mary-san followed us from behind.

Is everyone coming?

But as soon as they saw my store, they all froze.

“Is something the matter?” [Ryouma]

“Just a little surprised. This store wasn’t this color this morning, was it?” [Pauline]

“I painted it just a while ago. The color of dirt doesn’t exactly give the impression of cleanliness, so I thought it ill-matched for a laundromat. As such, I bought some lime and cooked something up with my slimes and a little magic.” [Ryouma]

“Haa~ You really work fast, don’t you?” [Pauline]

“It certainly looks cleaner like this, though.” [Kiara]

“So this is a laundromat. Maybe I should try getting my laundries washed too. It would be a load off my back if I could cut down some time doing laundry.” [Mary]

“By all means, please do. And since we’ve already been acquainted with each other, I’d like to offer you a free trial good for one bag worth of laundry.” [Ryouma]

I took out two bags of from my Item Box and distributed it to Mary and Pauline. You gotta get customers at times like this!

After that I let Pauline-san pick the seeds. In the end, I ended up purchasing 15 bags of lawn grass seeds and 2 bags each of 4 different flower seeds.

Speaking of which, didn’t someone mention that you can advertise on the guild’s bulletin board?

I need to the scavengers to make some fertilizers too, so I guess I’ll drop by the guild tomorrow.

Upon deciding that, I went back home and thought of what to write in the advertisement.

 

Tl note: THere’s another chapter part.

    Inside i feel like a kid asking; “Are we there yet?”
    Aside from thanks for the chapter, just need the “next chapter” button.

    “We know… We saw them with my own eyes, after all.” [Mary] needs to be changed to:
    “We know… We saw them with OUR own eyes, after all.” [Mary] so that the pronouns match up.

      Makes you wonder, what if the typo wasn’t a mistake, and “We have a lot of tamers in Gimuru” was connected, could the others have a contract on her so they could see through her eyes? Maybe all the housewives in the area have a complex interconnected contract system, to augment the local gossip…?

    Thanks for the chapter. “I need to the scavengers to make some fertilizers too, so I guess I’ll drop by the guild tomorrow.” You got a “to” too much in the sentence.
