Chapter 14: Uncle and the Travel Preparations (part 1)
I already decided on this plan, I will go and learn the profundity of making swords .
Thus, I needed to prepare for a journey .
Although I felt some remnants of guilt towards the heroes who wanted to buy my weapons, from now on, I was the travelling merchant, Uncle Zhai He . In order to become the number one blacksmith in the world, Principal of the hero school, please pass on your cheat to me .
But before the expedition, I needed to begin some preparations .
“So, what you’re saying is this?”
“The hole dug from the dirt of the mountain without saying a word is all my fault!”
First, I must kneel and apologize toward the village head whose hair and beard were all white .
As an uncle kneeling in such a public situation, there isn’t a more shameful action .
But there’s nothing that can be done . Even a wise person who thinks a thousand thoughts will make a mistake .
I actually was not paying attention . The dirt from the foot of the mountain and at the entrance of my house are different colors!!
Today, early in the morning, a noisy voice startled me awake . When I went to the front door, I then understood where the general trend was going . If a large portion of the white dirt was discovered to be yellow, it would be hard to think that it wouldn’t attract an uproar . Fortunately, the village head didn’t complain too much about me . He really is a good person .
Except for making me pay 20 silver coins as a repair fee .
With this matter finished, I could proceed to Ka Luona’s university, which according to her was quite a distance from here . I saw a map; using a comparison from my original world, it’s about the distance from Beijing to Shanghai . However, at the present time since I only have Little Hairball as a means of transportation, it is still an extremely daunting journey .
This is the first time I’ve seen a map . Our Country, Duopunuowa has a terrible shape . Despite the current ruler’s attempts to beautify it, I still feel that it looks like a Big Bean Bug . If I was a foreigner, I definitely would call it bean bug country without the slightest hesitation . But right now, I would it call the Link to Happiness .
I wasn’t at all not satisfied with Duopunuowa . The conditions and customs here were very favorable towards me, an reincarnated person, but it can’t be said that I love it . In my original world, I lived thirty years, so my love towards my previous country is very deep-rooted . But it’s not the same here . Two years is still too short .
Where I lived, the Newbie Village (I named it myself) was not marked on the map, and I could only rely on my feeling to determine the approximate location . Between here and Asalei, we would need to surmount about half the length of a bean bug . Duopunuowa is not considered to be big, but it directly borders on the magic race? Demon race, so it’s on the frontlines . Little Hairball and Elan cannot be left here alone, and will all come with me . Thinking this, the things I need to buy are a lot .
This is the first time I’m leaving the village, so I don’t have a cart (or carriage) and camping equipment . Although I could call Little Hairball a mount, I didn’t have any plans to ride it . I consider him as a pet I’ve raised . If I made him pull the cart, Elan would not be pleased .
Renting a cart or buying two horses, I faced a difficult decision .
From the price standpoint, there wasn’t that big of a decision, the problem is that if I bought horses, I could not reveal my wonderful artistic skills in making carts .
Think about it, if I sat on the beautiful and handsome horse and went to see that old woman…… .
It would seem like a prince going to receive a princess .
Upon thinking this, my stomach felt bad .
As expected, I’ll be renting a cart .
Be that as it may, this is my first time picking a horse .
“Zhai He, can it be possible that you’re not good at this?” As I stared at the different horses for the carts, when life was not clear and I couldn’t tell high from low and up from down, a gentle and warm female voice came from behind me .
It was warm and gentle, but I couldn’t perceive the situation that was coming, so it was actually really scary .
I mechanically turned my head .
The flower shop owner with a small smile, Ya Zi .
“Aya aya, don’t say that something like I’m good at everything . I am merely a simple man who can only make weapons .
I crinkled my eyes to smile when speaking .
“Where, where? I still believe that even when it come to stallions you’ll definitely comprehend it . ”
The next second, our two pairs of hands were locked together, all ten fingers, in a position like wrestling team members .
“What are you saying, you meddlesome old woman?”
“We are both of the same age, Uncle . I heard that you also met up with our shop assistant in private? Last time I saw you, you were sick so I didn’t have the lack of propriety to bring it up . Do you know what you’re doing?”
“Ah? What do you think you’re doing? Li Sanai is quickly becoming just as black-bellied as you, that smile clearly came from the same mold . ”
“Hmph! I’m just teaching her how to respond towards sexual harassment from middle-aged uncles, that’s all . ”
Like so, we remained in a deadlock for a period of time .
“This time I’ll spare you . Do you want to go? This time, I will help you . If you’re thinking about going on a long journey, this is the best cart to buy . ”
She said this to me .
I followed the direction of her pointing finger, immediately I thought of a scene from a travel .
An ancient road, the west wind, a skinny horse .
“Those two horses look really weak……you wouldn’t be cheating me?”
“Don’t just see that it’s thinner than other horses; it’s endurance is very good . ”
“Aya, sorry . I didn’t think that you understood that much about horses . Could it be……that’s a good mouth?
Ya Zi used the smile of an angel to look at me:
“Just die . ”
After I settled the account, I suddenly saw Ka Luona .
It’s fine if she calls me master, but if she says that in front of Ya Zi, I can’t defend against the taunting .
And the saying has come true .
Although Ya Zi’s smile had not faded a little, I could already sense her taunting aura .
Earlier, when Li Sanai resigned from the store, Ya Zi, that woman, was an evil demon .
“The evil backstage manipulator always has done this to their cute junior . ”
Ka Luona looked at Ya Zi without understanding .
“You are……Big Sister Ya Zi from the flower shop . I am the investigation official, Ka Luona . ”
Ya Zi suddenly grabbed onto my arm .
What is this woman doing .
Uncle, it’s because her chest touching me that’s making me nervous!
“Hello, Miss Ka Luona . I am an ex-wife who was played around by Uncle before being discarded!”
