“Last time you left it behind when you ran off, remember?” [Ryouma]

“Ah, yeah…” [Tekun]

“After you left I opened my Item Box to look for some snacks to eat while drinking, but because of that I ran out of time and stuffed all my belongings back in. Unfortunately, the goblet got mixed in. I only noticed it this morning when I opened my Item Box to arrange everything, so… Umm… Sorry. I didn’t mean to take it with me.” [Ryouma]

“I don’t really mind. So, you brought that with you to the other side?” [Tekun]

“Yes. I stuffed it into my Item Box along with my other belongings and was able to bring it out in the other side.” [Ryouma]

“You were able to bring it out? But in the first place, magic is… No. What’s necessary for magic is spirit and mana… So I guess he can use it?” [Tekun]

As Tekun said that, he scratched his head and said this.

“Show me that for a bit.” [Tekun]

I gave him the goblet just as he said, then he caressed it and stared at it as if he were confirming something.

“…Ryouma, I don’t mind if you take this with you. Among humans it might be considered a sacred treasure [1], but we gods can make something on this level anytime. And besides, this already belongs to you.” [Tekun]

“It belongs to me? Come to think of it, when I used Identify on it, the information said that its owner was Ryouma Takebayashi.” [Ryouma]

“It’s probably because I gave you the goblet and left you behind, so it was probably assumed that I was giving the goblet to you. Either way this is completely yours already, so enough of that. Have a drink.” [Tekun]

As Tekun said that, he took a bottle of liquor out of thin air and poured it into the goblet, then he handed the goblet back to me.

“Are you sure it’s okay to decide it just like that? Also, it’s still morning, so…” [Ryouma]

“You’re a soul right now, so you won’t get drunk. Besides, if we’re going to be talking, then liquor should come first, right?

As for the goblet, as I said just now, I can make as many of that as I want, so I don’t really care.

There are also people who’ve received a sacred treasure from me in the past .

Abilities of stuff created according to the wishes of the otherworlders can go from good to bad,

There are all sorts of blessings given to otherworlders, but the most common type is a sacred treasure.

There’s nothing wrong with a human receiving a sacred treasure.

So enough of that and let’s get to the important stuff: drinking!” [Tekun]

Is it really okay to make that decision on a whim!?

“Well, it would cause a commotion if word were to get out that you’re in possession of a sacred treasure, so make sure to hide it and just use it when you’re by yourself.” [Tekun]

“I understand. I’m glad there’s no problem. I didn’t do it on purpose, but I was still really scared when I realized I’d taken something from this side.” [Ryouma]

I drank from the goblet Tekun gave me. Today’s sake tastes good too. It feels like there’s less alcohol in today’s drink than last time’s. Is Tekun being considerate?

“GAHAHA, there are certainly things that would be troublesome if brought to the other side, but those are carefully watched, so you don’t have to worry about that. In fact you won’t even get a chance to see it, so you don’t have to worry about that.

And besides, that’s just a goblet that produces wine.

It’s a lot safer compared to something that increases its wielders abilities or a sword that allows one to cut castle walls like paper. If anything, I’mmore concerned of the fact that you were actually able to take a sacred treasure with you, but… Eh, whatever.” [Tekun]

“Am I not supposed to be able to?” [Ryouma]

“Of course not! There’s no way an item from the divine realm could be taken just like that, right? …In fact, a human being able to come here is already plenty strange.” [Tekun]

Oh, yeah…

“I’ve come here so many times, I’d already forgotten.” [Ryouma]

“It’s partly because you came here, but it seems Gayn and the others repeatedly calling you here is also having an effect.” [Tekun]

“I get told that a lot. Is it alright?” [Ryouma]

“Who knows? I’m the god of wine and craftsmen, so even if you ask me that, I can’t answer. You should ask Fernoberia [2] instead. He might know something.” [Tekun]

Fernoberia? Who’s that?

“Who’s that?” [Ryouma]

“Ahh, you don’t know him, huh? He’s the god of magic. Fernoberia, the God of Magic. He’s always shutting himself inside his domain, so I don’t really know him well, but he should be the most knowledgeable when it comes to magic. Unfortunately, it’s really rare to see that guy, so I don’t know if you’ll ever get to meet him.” [Tekun]

“I see… Well, I haven’t noticed any problems, and Gayn and the others said it’s nothing bad, so it’s probably fine. It would’ve bee nice to know the reason, though.” [Ryouma]

“It’s only natural to think that way when strange things happen around you.” [Teku]

“As Tekun said that, the surrounding area started to dazzle. Huh? Isn’t it quicker than usual?

“Oh, it’s time.’ [Ryouma]

I quickly emptied my drink and stored the goblet back into my Item Box.

“Ho~ so this is what happens you’re about to go back.” [Tekun]

“By the way, were you able to meet Gayn and the others?” [Ryouma]

“Yeah, managed to catch them when they were on the way home. They really did go to your world.
I managed to make them agree to let me go next time and have a taste of Earth wine.” [Tekun]

As Tekun said that, he heartily laughed.

“I see. Take care not to drink too— Oh, but you’re the god of wine, so you probably don’t get drunk, huh?” [Ryouma]

“Of course I can’t! I’ll drink a shower’s worth of alcohol!” [Tekun]

“By the way, what will happen when you go around drinking? Will Earth’s liquor just disappear all of the sudden?” [Tekun]

“That won’t happen. Whether it’s there or here, the liquor will be created by the power of a god. It’s like how your goblet makes liquor with mana. No matter how much I drink, other people won’t run out of liquor.” [Tekun]

“I see, I guess I won’t hold back with this goblet then.” [Ryouma]

“That’s how it should be. Enjoy liquor! Liquor should be enjoyed!” [Tekun]

When Tekun said that, I tried to answer back, but the world had already been dyed in white, and before I knew it, I was back at the chapel.

“…Couldn’t make it in time. I wonder if he’ll be able to hear it if I pray?” [Ryouma]

Thank you. I will also enjoy liquor here. I hope you have fun in your alcohol tour too.

As I prayed that, I left a donation and left the church.

Now then, let’s go to the store. It’s a little late, though, as it’s already past opening time,

When I walked to the store, I heard a big crowd laughing near the store.

Sounds like they’re having fun. Where are the voices coming from? …Huh? My store?

The store was coming from my store. The people outside the store were all laughing. What are they doing?

I took a peek and it turns out Leelin-san had knocked out two men.

Seriously, what are they doing?

“Good morning, Leelin-san.” [Ryouma]

“Ah, Boss. Good morning. I’ve just finished tying these men up. Please wait a moment.” [Leelin]

Leelin-san quickly bound the two guys. While she was doing that, I asked Carm-san, who was currently tending to the store, what was going on.

“What happened?” [Ryouma]

“It’s been a while since the last time, but they came to cause trouble.” [Carm]

“Huh? So, what’s with all the laughing? I’d understand if they were screaming, so why are they laughing?” [Ryouma]

“Actually…” [Carm]

Apparently, the ruffians wanted to complain about the laundry quality to pull down our reputation, so they’d intentionally stained their clothes with something hard to remove, but it didn’t work on the cleaner slimes. Unfortunately, they didn’t bother checking their clothes after getting them washed as they boldly called out to the crowd of customers and said, “Look! They failed to clean my clothes!” Only, to then reveal a perfectly clean piece of clothing.

The people started laughing one after another, until eventually, everyone was laughing. When the men tried to get violent, Leelin-san apprehended them, and that’s when I came in.

Moreover, it also so happens that some guards were passing by when they caused a disturbance. One of the customers called them, and they took the ruffians away for obstructing business.

“I don’t know if this is lucky or unlucky…” [Ryouma]

“We didn’t have time to hear them out.” [Leelin]

 

[1] – Divine vessel to sacred treasure. Saw the characters for god and vessel and just literally translated it. Apparently, it has a proper translation. My bad.

[2] – Decided to just go with Fernoberia since people think the alternatives sound like a book title.

 

Tl Note: Next chapter part on Tuesday probably. This chapter is practically done, but I’m out of time. Next release will probably include the next chapter too.

    I take it that Ryouma said that and not Tekun

    I’m guessing “The noise…” or “The voices were…” would fit here

  3. Smithy says:

    I don’t understand the motivation of the people trying to sabotage his store, from the readings there doesn’t seem to be any competition and no one seems to be missing out and he doesn’t interact with people enough to piss them off.

  4. Slime waifu when says:

    The world is running out of mana, gods have to import it from another world.
    Yet, wasting mana on wine is encouraged? And gods don’t seem to be too interested in resolving this problem at all.

    Clearly, this is an analogy of our world, economics and climate change. Mana shortage is inevitable, slime slavery is on the rise, MC is on his way of becoming the richest person. Wars, famine, genocide, and then the end of the world…

    They think the Earth god is just some unreasnoble douche, but he was preventing the second coming of Hitler and early Bill Gates combined.
