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.
