Miniature Garden Chemister – Chapter 21

While sitting down at the table in the living room, I was drinking the black tea / mana potion, while turning the pages of the book elegantly.

Ikuru sat down on the chair across from me as we are both looking at me turn the pages of the book.

I noticed that Ikuru seems to like black tea. So I started to drinking black tea more often. Oh, but this tea is not sweet enough, Ikuru likes to drink it straight. I like sweet tea better though.

“Method of making potions… how to make high recovery potions. All of this is written in this book.”

“I see…”

“There are some materials that I don’t know …”

I was bothered by the fact I can make poison along with antidotes… how would you say it? I’m afraid.

“Hmm… poisonous plants grow in the Lost Forest, so we should be able to find them, but it will be dangerous if you don’t have an antidote.”

“Oh! There’s poisonous plants?”

“Yes. There is a poisonous plant that grows in the Lost Forest and in medium / large – sized forests. I am not sure if they will grow in this shallow forest.”

I see…! It was good information.

It seems to be necessary to get Kukuri fruit for the antidotes right? The name is somewhat cute… According to the book, it’s upper body is yellow, and the bottom is orange.

It seems to be special and I wonder if there is any growing here…?

“Kukuri’s rarely grow in shallow forests, but how about this area?”

“Is there a split tree anywhere?”

“Yes, it’s height is around my waist… It’s not that big especially since it has an unlimited habitat. I’ll go into the forest to look for it.”

“Oh…”

“It’s okay, you won’t face strong monsters. Since there only small fish demons there.”

Oh, that’s right… Ikuru is strong.

I know that he is strong, but monsters are scary after all.

“Please don’t overstrain yourself?”

“I understand. Hinami should just sit and drink tea while waiting.”

I nod at Ikuru’s word and remind him “ Please don’t overdo it!”

I dislike it when people get hurt from sickness and injuries.

“… I’m going to check the forest. I should be back in about an hour.”

“Eh! You’re already going?”

“It’s just right there. Well, it is the Lost Forest, can I get a recovery potion just in case?”

“ You can have all of them!”

“I think that would be too many. I will just take one when needed.”

“Okay, I grabbed a lot of them.”

Ikuru goes into the basement and returns with a recovery potion and just like that he leaves for the forest while saying “I’m off”.

I am going to the garden to make more recovery potions, until Ikuru returns.

“Oh… if you have the fruit and flowers of the “Princess tree” you can make a princess protection potion.”

As I am stroking the princess tree that grows in the mangrove, I observe it. Hmm… there are many leaves but I have yet to see any flowers bloom. But what kind of flower will bloom? I wonder if they will bloom… will the flowers be beautiful?

“I’m sure that beautiful flowers will bloom because it’s a princess tree. << Angel’s Voice (Sanctuary) >>”

With that, the branches of the princess tree started to shake and then … the flowers bloomed.

It felt like a miracle had happened, it was as if an angel flew down.  The flowers that bloomed were beautiful, they were white and pink in color. In the center of the flower a coronet was imitated, and the leaf that is sticking out under the flower fluttered making it look like it was a dress.

The flower really does look like … a princess.

“Oh, I need to pick it…! I need the fruit.”

What should I do? Should I use my skill and pick it? Or would it better to use a skill again after a flower is picked?

“No let’s do it this way! << Angel’s Voice (Sanctuary) >>!”

My voice goes in between the trees and reaches the flowers of the princess tree.

Then a fruit grew under the flower.

“Ooo~!”

I gently pick up the flower like a jewel, and take a good look at it. Why are they sparkling so much…? Oh! It’s sparkling because the it is reflecting the light. The nut of the flower looks a decoration that a princess would use.

Can you eat this…? It looks delicious… no I would rather put them up. Is it poisonous… but Ikuru didn’t say it poisonous, and it can be used in recovery potions and in the princess’s divine protection medicine, and there should be no problem.

I wonder if I’m just curious or…?

No, it’s useless. Let’s eat it together once Ikuru comes back.

“Ikuru is working hard, so I have to work hard to gain points!”

But… what should we do?

The princess tree is about three meters tall ( about 10 feet ) . There are some fruits on the base, but there are many fruits in places that I can’t reach. And of course some flowers also.

I can use my skill to pick up the fruits and flowers at the bottom… but it’s slow. But there’s no ladder… Let’s request God for a ladder through the exchange diary later.

Plop!

Hmm?

“The fruit fell…?”

The princess’s nuts have fallen near my feet. Along with a flower. Did it fall off naturally…? When looking up, I understood the cause.

“Maro!”

“Mi ~ !”

“Did you drop the nuts? Thank you!”

“Mi!”

Amazing! I didn’t know that rabbits were good at climbing trees!

Maro, the snow rabbit walks across the branches of the tree and shakes the branches making the fruit fall. Flowers are also falling, so it’s killing two birds with one stone. It is indeed a magical mangrove. A considerable number of fruits have fallen into the river, should I carry this? My thought starts to move towards the fallen fruit.

For now, I have to bring a bottle. However it is difficult to bring a bottle just by myself. So I decided to bring the exchange diary here and prepare the bottles here.

[ Bottle x 100 ] 3 x 5 = 15 points used

[ Total : 15 points used ]

[ Current points : 20,031 ]

“Yes, this is good!”

The bottle is put next to the magic mangrove, and the magical water is getting running water from the river. In the water there are plenty of princess nuts and flowers that Maro dropped. It looks like there are about 30…? I’ll make the princess divine protection potions for now.

“I don’t know the effect of the princess divine protection though… I think it might increase magical power and … mana? It was probably written in the book, but I only saw the materials… Let’s look later … For now … Become a wonderful recovery potion << Angel’s Voice >> !”

As it responds to voice, the recovery potion is made as usual at my feet. I have already gotten used to it, I am continuously making potions.

“Is that the princess protection potions … 300 potions?”

There are three bags with 100 bottles each at my feet. Three bags of bottles changed into princess divine protection potions. Because there was 30 flowers and fruits, I could make 10 potions with each fruit and flower?

But … it is only a subtle quantity, I can only make 10 princess divine protection potions with one fruit and flower. I thought I would be able to make more potions with this amount.

While I still have this chance, I will make a lot of princess divine protection potions… and when I get lucky. Well I’ll do my best to surprise Ikuru!

“ << Angel’s Voice >>!”

I use the skill on the tree once again, and Maro knocks down the fruits and flowers that grow on the tree to me.

Yes, me and Maro have good teamwork! The compatibility is perfect! By the way, when I was playing games with Hana, I could not cooperate with her. But it must have been that Hana was not that great… isn’t it? The last person that was devoting themselves to Hana is following me…! But there is no reason for me to be hospitable!

(TN extremely unsure of this 私は接待プレイをされたいわけじゃないんですよ!)

“ No, it’s not good, not good. << Angel’s Voice >>.”

I exchanged points and bottles several times while making the potions silently. I must have been working with great concentration. I kept making medicine nonstop until Ikuru called out to me.

If you look near my feet, it’s overflowed with sacks of the potions. I can’t count the number… scary. Oh, but the princess protection potion bottles have a more rounded shape than others, it’s a cute bottle mimicking the shape of a coronet.

“I’m amazed… what did you do?”

“Well, haha…”

I finally got his amazed face… but the words too…! I thought that it wasn’t a possibility!

“ I spaced out…”

“Well it’s ok, but… is your body okay with using that skill so much?”

“Huh…?”

Body… I have never thought about it!

But there is nothing unusual about my body… yeah, it’s okay. It’s a bit embarrassing to be worried after. I told Ikuru that “I’m ok” and turned around showing that I’m ok.

“It seems like this is princess divine protection potion. 1 , 2, 3 … 10 bags of potions, so 1000 potions?”

“Well… it looks like it…!”

Ikuru steadily counted the number of bags instead of like me who escaped reality… strongly.

[Bottle x100] 3x 5 = 15 points.

[Points used : 21 ]

[Magical Formulation : Special] 5 x 1000= 5000 points added.

[Total added:  5000 points.]

[Current Points: 25,016]

“At this pace … I can get the door of the miniature garden completed soon! Don’t you think?”

“Certainly. Well, it’s good since it’s super convenient.”

I noticed that Ikuru is holding something, is that the poisonous or kukuri plant?

Ikuru noticed me looking and said “I found it properly” as I receive the bag. This leaf… is swirling around the vertical rolls and the leaves are the “poisonous grass” with the exception of ordinary leaf at the base! The poisonous parts are a beautiful yellow -green color.

There were only about 20 poisonous grasses in the bag.

“I could not find the Kukuri tree, but there was quite a bit of poisonous plants growing… I picked them for the time being. As long as you don’t make a mistake, we are OK.”

“Thank you very much Ikuru. But what are we you going to do with the poison? It’s dangerous.”

“Well, since it’s a poison… assassination?”

“Eh!”

“It’s just a joke. Because this poison is too not effective on humans, it will not kill a person. However, the poison has a immediate effect on demons, it’s often applied onto swords and arrows. If Hinami wants to level up, you can apply poison onto a sword and hit a demon with it.  If used on a bow… it’s too dangerous for you.”

“Ooo… so you defeat it this way too!”

There was a bow that was given to me, but it seems too dangerous. The contents seem too adult for me!

So leveling… I live in a forest, but it increases my anxiety. And when I go to meet the goddess, I’ll leave this forest to go to a more dangerous place.  As I thought, shouldn’t I level myself up?

Anyways, Ikuru and I did the tedious task of moving the princess divine protection potion to the basement.
