The next day.
I went outside when I woke up, but it was still dark.
Did I sleep too much yesterday? It’s still too early to go to town.
As such, I went ahead and used the time to add a kitchen and a storehouse to the abandoned mines. I also arranged the contents of my Item Box. I stored most of my herb-related stuff in the lab , but the Item Box was full of the unsold pelt.
Pelt, pelt, pelt, pelt, black tea… The black tea goes to the kitchen.
Pelt, pelt, pelt, pelt, pelt, pelt, money… Ah, these are the bandits’ possession… weapon, armor, armor, weapon, weapon… Come to think of it, I completely forgot about that bandit, Melzel’s, spear. Let’s mess with it later. Next is… more pelt.
“Pelt again. I have way too many of these things. Honestly, why did I have to go and take everything? I should’ve just let the slimes eat them. At least that way they wouldn’t have gone to waste.” [Ryouma]
As I continued arranging the contents of my Item Box, I found something strange.
“What is this?” [Ryouma]
It was a goblet.
Everything I’ve made is either made with stone through earth magic or with shaved wood, but this goblet is made out of silver. Moreover, it’s also adorned with gold and jewels.
Why is something so luxurious inside my Item Box?
I doubt this belonged to the bandits. I checked my possessions when I left the forest, and this wasn’t on me then. I do recall seeing this once, though…
I used Identify on the goblet.
Divine Vessel. The Goblet of the God of Wine, Tekun.
A divine vessel created by the god of wine, Tekun.
It is imbued with the power of the god of wine and can produce an endless supply of liquor in exchange for mana.
Owner: Ryouma Takebayashi
!?!?!? Wait a minute! What is this? Why would I have something crazy like a divine vessel with me!?
“Oh, wait! This is that goblet Tekun gave me when we met! I brought that back with me!?” [Ryouma]
Thinking back on it, I just stuffed everything back into my Item Box, so it seems I accidentally brought it back with me.
“Isn’t this like really bad? …I need to go to the church!” [Ryouma]
I stuffed the goblet back into my Item Box and put my slimes into my Dimension Home, then I left the abandoned mine and hurried to town. I went as fast as I could.
I went straight to the church as soon as I got to the town. When I reached the entrance of the churce, a girl opened the door.
“Oh, are you here to visit the chapel?” [Nun]
“Yes, can I?” [Ryouma]
“Yes, of course. It sure is rare to see someone come so early…” [Nun]
I don’t really have time to chat, but…
“I’ve been quite busy with work, so I didn’t have any other time to come than now.” [Ryouma]
“I see.” [Nun]
The nun brought me to the chapel.
Honestly, I remember the way already, so I actually wanted to refuse her and just run straight to the chapel, but I had to keep up appearances, so I just thanked the girl and then took took a seat and prayed.
Tekun! Please take me to the divine realm!!
A few seconds after I prayed that, a white light filled my vision and brought me to the divine realm.
My prayer worked!
When the light stopped, I turned around and Tekun was there.
At that, I heaved a sigh of relief.
“You called, Ryouma? Actually, how did you call me? I definitely heard your voice just now.” [Tekun]
“I prayed at church.” [Ryouma]
“Oh, come on! As if just that would be able to call me a god so easily. If that were true we gods would be getting calls everyday.” [Tekun]
“Even if you say that… Ah, but forget that, I have something I need to talk to you about.” [Ryouma]
“What happened?” [Tekun]
Instead of words, I decided to just show him the goblet.
When Tekun saw it, he opened his eyes wide and looked alternatively between the goblet and the hole made by my Item Box.
