42 Episode: Lenas intensive training
” Ohayou… ”
” Good morning ”
As usual I woke up while being sandwiched between Nina and Lena. How and why they always end up in my bed is still a mystery. I pushed them away and go to wash up.
Today we are going to try to level up Nina and Lena. Right now, my level is 25, Nina 24, and Lena 17. I tought Nina will be slacking off, but she is trying hard to catch up to my level.
” Delicious! ”
Todays breakfast is seaweed and seafood soup. The taste when being eaten together with the bread is superb. The feeling of umami soup, mixed with the crispy bread which is rich in butter really melts in my mouth.
” Yu, you have promised to me yesterday. ”
” Of course I remember. ”
I promised to Nina and Lena that we will go to the blacksmith. When we arrived there, the dwarf uncle is already waiting with his hand on his hip. He laughs when he saw us while his body is moving up and down as if doing a radio gymnastics movement.
” It is rare to see you outside your shop. ”
” Oh you guys! Hahaha. I need to do some exercise. Staying at the shop all day long is tiring. ”
We enter the shop and explained what we needed.
Nina’s steel dagger has been broken, if it wasn’t for the dagger that Lalit lends her, she couldn’t have fought yesterday. Lena’s cloak likewise has been torn up by goblins attack.
” Don’t worry. I got something good! ”
Sword breaker (grade 5) : sharpness increase
Black steel dagger (grade 5) : No effect
Stoecker Cloak (grade 5) : fire resistance increase
The sword breaker is a dagger found in the dungeon. The dwarf uncle said an adventurer sold it to him after he used it up to the point of near breaking. He is also surprised that he was able to fix it and didn’t lose the enchantment.
The black steel dagger is made of the same material which Yu’s sword is. It was sturdy without a doubt. The Stoecker cloak is made from fire rats that live in the fire forest. It was woven with steel spider thread and the quality is superb.
“Alright, I’ll buy all of it!”
“All of it? Okay, I’ll give you a special discount for it. ”
The sword breaker is 20 gold coins discounted to 15. Black steel dagger is 7 gold coins and stoecker cloak is 5 gold coins and 7 silver. The total price is 27 gold and 7 silver or 2.77 million moon coins. Yu didn’t care much because their revenue also has increased.
” Yu, you’re paying for my dagger? ” (Nina)
“…I want to pay it myself…” (Lena)
” Don’t worry. Yesterday we got quite some money. ”
Yesterday from Goblin King reward we got some money. Although it was divided for three of us, I still have some to spare. After finished shopping, we go to the guild to take some quests. There are some subdue and collection quest at the large forest. When we were walking to the counter, Collet is waving her hand to greet us.
” Good morning everyone! Cheers for the good work yesterday. ”
” Good morning.! Can you tell us some good quest in the large forest? ”
” Please wait! Today’s request for collection at the large forest is Magic flowers, moon grass, and Pokko grass. The subdue quest involving boar soldiers and black wolfs that are attacking nearby crops. The highest request is to subdue a silver wolf or some monster material from rank 4 and higher. ”
We are attracting some attention from other adventurers. Since it was rare for Collet to be friendly to any adventurers and they heard that the quest we take is getting harder day by day.
When we enter the large forest, Lena immediately used [barrier]. From yesterday battle, she seemed to be able to use it more effectively. Her Mp consumption for the skill has increased but the weirdest thing is the shape.
” What? ” (Lena)
It was a sphere shape rather than usual oval, it is pretty sturdy but some areas are worrisome.
” Your [barrier] is uneven. Look this place is thin of magic and this one is thick. ”
“… Uuu.. It’s because of the shape.”
” Then why don’t you do it normally? ”
” Because I want to maintain this at all times. The concentration needed for this is lesser. ”
” Isn’t it going to deplete your mana? How are you going to defeat your enemy? ”
I understand her worries. Afterall as a caster class, her defence is low so she needs to put up a defensive wall. For me, luckily I can used [body enhance] and ” heaven’s net”.
I used [body enhance] to strengthen my body and the MP consumed is lower than [barrier].
” Yu, I detect a boar soldier. ”
Nina noticed the approaching boar soldier. It seemed that her [awareness] skill is getting better.
Of course I have noticed it far before her but I want to see their development.
” Please die~” Nina is playfully shouting as usual.
The distance between Nina and the boar soldier is around 10 meters. In a blink of an eye, she disappeared and reappeared in front of the boar soldier. It panicked seeing Nina but instantly the head is rolling on the ground. Boar soldiers neck diameter is around 70 cm. It is so amazing that she could do it in a single clean cut.
” This dagger sharpness is amazing. ” Nina is delighted with it while by now Lena face is sweating. She is trying hard to maintain her [barrier].
By the way, this is Ninas status.

Her [dual dagger] ,[ assassination mastery] and [Lock Picking] has leveled up. Her equipment also fully enchanted. It is so weird that she doesn’t have special skill. It is also different than usual “None”. This time it was “blank”. It must be haven’t fully acquired. It might be the blinking movement she performed earlier.
This is Lena status.

Lena didn’t level up too much, however considering her young age, she was excellent. The ring of life and ogre shoes also were enchanted yesterday.
It was an experiment to see whether it was possible to grant an enchantment to an equipment that already has natural effects.
” Yu… Mana potion please… ”
Lena is asking me for a potion with a blue face.
” Here! ”
Lena said that rather than having gold as the goblin king rewards, she prefers mana potions. It’s like killing two birds in one stone. She doesn’t have to worry about her potions and I could increase my [alchemy] skill at the same time. The materials to make it also can be gathered here in the large forest.
” Fufufuf… I have to adjust my [barrier]. ” Lena stomach has swollen a little bit from drinking too much mana potions.
” Are you alright? ” Nina is asking her worriedly.
” No problem.. I’m a genius. ”
” Self proclaimed! ” (yu)
Oh, today Joseph is tailing us. He didn’t wear any weird equipment again, but is keeping a 100 meter distance. Sometimes I throw wind magic “by mistake” but he is able to block it or dodge it easily.
We proceed deeper, opening our pathway trough goblin soldiers, orc soldiers, orcs, and poison snakes. It was all easily killed by Nina and Lena’s [barrier] by now has been stable.
” This is yesterdays spot. ”
We finally arrived at the place where we killed the goblin king. There are several craters and bones around it. However the goblin king’s corpse is still pristine, it doesn’t show any sign of rotting.
There’s something I want to try out but first I need to ward off Joseph.
I combines earth and wind magic to create a small sandstorm. It blocked off his sight.
Nina and Lena understand that I want to try out my skill. They are looking at me with full interest.
I tried to revive the goblin king using “raise dead” that I took from the great war ape.
The goblin king slowly opened its eyes which are gleaming dark red. [spectre magic] successful!
” Master…. I’m waiting… for your… instruction. ”
Maybe it’s because the level is still too low that it couldn’t speak normally.
” Do you remember who you are? ”
” Don’t you resent me? ”
” There is… No.. Such.. Feeling.. I’m waiting… For order… ”
It seemed that it turned obedient to me. Although it remembered me, there is no hostility. Nina is uneasily looking at me while Lena is observing closely.
I walked around and looking for its legs and arms that are scattered around. I pressed it to the cut section and use heal to connect it. Without problem the goblin king is now recovered. It seemed that [white magic] heal didn’t cause harm to the undead.
I passed an iron sword from around to it.
” I give you your order. There is an adventurer near here. Please hold him back. ”
” Understood… ”
With that, the goblin king disappeared deep into the forest. This is the status before it left.
|Name:||Iavun||Race:||Goblin King Zombie|
It doesn’t have skills because I robbed it beautifully. There are also some changes to its status. The undead revived using [spectre magic ] can be used for reconnaissance too. They are connected to me trough magic. Giving order from afar and sharing information is possible.
After awhile we could hear Joseph screaming but Nina and Lena walked as if nothing happened.
At the present, this is Yu status.
