Miniature Garden Chemister – Chapter 20

I was born with the << curse >>, I lived a relaxing life in the village with curse slaves.

Somehow I managed to read books, but when I ran out of money, we earned it through hunting demons and picking herbs.

I thought I would be able to live peacefully with this << curse >> . However, suddenly my eye… was deprived of light.

Even if I couldn’t see through one eye, there is no inconvenience because there is search wind magic. However, it’s extremely inconvenient because the << curse >> does not allow attack magic to be used. Even if it’s possible to fight with one eye, it’s difficult to fight without both eyes.

So in order to be able to use attack magic, I because a slave to release the << curse >>.

I can fight well, and since I liked to read books, I have decent amount of knowledge.

Oh, well whatever master I got, I would should have no problems.

Since you get to choose what type of curse slave you are, when I traded myself to the curse slave merchant, I chose to be a “ guard slave ” since I could fight.

“But there was no way that that little girl would become my master…”

Well, I thought I could do whatever my master wanted me to do… but as expected it’s still astonishing. Because this child does not know the world.

However this child has no problem with geography and calculation of money. But what was it? She does not know the common sense of this world, and about the goddess…

In the room that Hinami has prepared for me. I lie down and recall what has happened today.

Hinami told me that she was “God’s toy”. But in this world, it is “goddess” not “god”. Hinami did not know about the goddess… but God and Goddess are not equal. And there is no God in < Retisuriru >.

A god’s toy that is not from this world. A younger sister that is far away but cannot meet. This strange house and Hinami’s power.

In other words…

“Hinami is being played around by “God” … she’s truly a toy”

(TN I’m very unsure about this)

I am a curse slave that is being treated normally and was given a nice room to stay in. The work that I do is just to “guard”. Furthermore … in this shallow forest with weak demons, this work is so easy that I start to think too much.

Hinami speaks to me sincerely even though I am a curse slave. But there is no information about my master, but when you look at her eyes … she holds no malice towards me.

Hinami and God’s relationship.

I have nothing to do with it … but it’s not a good feeling.

However, it isn’t good to assume things about master. But God being her “guard” is certainly impossible.

“Well… I’m going to take a bath.”

“I wonder if Hinami went to sleep after all?”

The living room has no lights by the time I finish taking a bath.

I remember Hinami’s tears who is usually strong from earlier. Hinami who was doing her best all by herself just for one person… made me confused.

I cannot heal the anxiety and confusion, but I can listen to the story.

As I am thinking, I wonder what we will do in the future? Because it was her first time going into the city and made a contact with me… will we got through the forest and just go into the city?

When a pharmacist that has no knowledge that can only make only recovery potions, I need to be careful. Guarding her may be tougher than I had originally thought.

I went down into the basement and saw a lot of mana and recovery potions. There is a lot of recovery potions packed into the bag.

I thought of this earlier but… how many recovery potions do you have? There must be thousands, no. Perhaps there are 20,000.

Anyways, if go to town to sell recovery potions in the future, I can just gather them here in the basement first. I don’t want to do anything bad though.

The basement which is buried in recovery potions are also packed into a bag. Just need keep some of them in a backpack to carry them out at anytime.

“But, selling all of these good recovery potions will be troublesome.”

The market price isn’t stable since there are a lot of people who sell low quality potions. The price difference is intense at markets in particular. If you were to go into town with these potions it would be stable because they would be sold at a quick pace since they are good quality products.

It should be okay to open up a stall in town… however there are too many potions to sell. Would it be able to sell? I may be better too open up a shop in town if done skillfully.

Well, that requires funds though.

But, come to think of it

As I was talking with the curse slave business owner and his tea house acquaintance. They said that knights buy potions. It may be better to just sell it to them. I am not sure if Hinami has connections but if she has them… it would be better to use them wouldn’t it? It would be easier.

“Well, I wonder…”

I will organize the basement first, and then think about it later.

It’s not like it was dirty in particular, so then I have prepared a portion of potions to bring into town to sell the next time we go. I had also toured the basement to get a grasp of it and closed it when I had finished.

And I decided to return to my room and sleep for today.

“Oh… Hinami is early.”

“Good morning Ikuru.”

“Good morning……”

In the morning while coming down to the living room, Hinami was getting breakfast ready. Although yesterday she was weak, it seems like the change too short? It’s surprisingly wonderful.

Well, her facial expressions are bright, and it looks like she convinced herself. I think it was a good talk then.

“Today, I cooked rice with eggs, salad, and a lot of soup.”

“Except for breakfast, I will make it.”

Since I made a contract, I should be the one making it. But since it’s Hinami, there should be no problem.

It seems like Hinami is done with making breakfast since she starts to bring out dishes. I go and help her arrange the dishes and we both sit down together.

“Itadakimasu”

(TN: It kinda sounds weird when you translate it, so I’m just gonna leave it like this.)

Oh, it’s tasty.

It tastes fresh since I rarely eat rice. I had always substitute rice for bread and I do not know what else is good to eat with rice.

“I have something to say” is written all over Hinami’s face. Hinami does not know the meaning of a poker face. Well it’s better to know what you’re thinking rather than not knowing. But when it’s plain to see, it can cause hardship.

“What?”

“Eh!”

As I am drinking soup I call out to Hinami. It seems like she is surprised to be seen through by me…?

“There’s something you would like to talk to me about, isn’t there?”

“Well…yes. It seems like Ikuru can see through anything.”

Hinami is slowly nodded her head as if affirming it. It’s because everything shows on your face Hinami. There is no one that can’t see it.

I will be surprised with Hinami’s words after this.

“ I think I’ll go and see the goddess!”

“…… I think you’re sleep talking, go lie back down.”

If someone’s next words said let’s go meet the goddess… what are you talking about?

However… Hinami’s face was serious.

“Are you being serious?”

“Yes…sorry… I’m sorry to burden you with this right now! It doesn’t mean now… I’m too weak and … “

“Do you know where she is?”

“I do not know, she is probably in a place where there’s a lot of nature.”

“……So”

I thought that I could return home, but doesn’t Hinami want to examine the destination? I believe it’s north right now, so let’s go north!

Well, it’s not like I dislike it.

“I also thought about the talk with Ikuru yesterday. Although all I remember is crying.”

“Eh…”

“For now, let me tell you my << status >>.”

Status value decreases

Attack magic unavailable

Cat’s tongue

( TN Can’t handle hot food)

“ Ikuru is strong… cat’s tongue?”

“It’s an average value.”

I know that Hinami is strong, so I answered it that way, Please don’t get stuck only looking at statuses.

It’s good that Hinami’s status… is weak. The problems are her skills, but… I have never heard of these skills. She has a lot of unusual skills, and it’s unusual to have so many of them isn’t it?

And the divine protection… the God Ligris, that uses Hinami as his toy.

“Hinami’s skill is special isn’t it?”

“Is it?”

“Yes, it is. There are people with special skills, but it’s extremely rare. It would be better to not talk about them too much.”

It’s for the sake of the country! People would come looking for her after learning that. Indeed, being able to cultivate herbs is quite different. She’s quite young… she’s 15 years old… I thought she was 10.

Meanwhile, Hinami nodded her head when she realized that her skill was special.

“So, God helps out a lot, especially with this house.”

“Yes.”

“Whenever I save points, I can exchange them for equipment or to improve or enlarge the house. I make recovery potions to be able to save points?”

The house mechanism… is God as I had expected. But the house is point-based, Hinami will tell me the details.

It seems like you can get points from defeating demons, but you get more points from making potions. But… looking at Hinami’s status and skills, it would be better to make potions.

After the << curse >> is released? So to do that, you want to meet up with a goddess? Hinami completely fits the role of God’s toy doesn’t she? She’s probably unaware of it.

It’s also important that she tell me what she can exchange for points.

“Can you tell me about this in detail?”

“ I guess I trust Ikuru. That’s what my intuition tells me.”

Ah… as expected Hinami is Hinami.

Well, I guess being carefree is good.

[Door of the miniature garden] 50,000

“What is door of the miniature garden?”

While looking through the list, I got an unexpected response.

“Oh that’s the one that I want the most right now. If you buy a house and link the door of the miniature garden to this house, it will connect to the house I bought in the city!”

“Oh…”

I thought it would be a terrace … but it’s actually a ridiculous feature.

In other words, if you buy a house and use door of the miniature garden there, you can go back and forth from the city and here at any moment. Is it spatial magic or time magic … or is it special specification? Well, it’s God, so it may be a dimension that humans never heard of.

“So you should save money and buy a house in the city, and save points to exchange for the door?”

“Yup!”

“How many points do you have?”

“Right now… I have 22,046 points. When I make high mana potions, I get 2 points.”

That means we still need 27, 954 points.

If I calculated it correctly, she needs to make 13,977 high mana potions? She made 800 potions yesterday … so accumulates these points pretty fast.

My contract is for five years… it seems like I won’t be bored.
