Chapter 27

Please consider white listing this website from your ad-blocker as this will support me to keep this site running. Thanks!

Gathering information about the elves, the greatest threat to the empire is essential to my survival. This time I focus on a female elf, whom I assumed to be a person of high standing in the Republic because of the fact that she always kept her eyes close bad had three followers.

Also, unlike the elves who use the river, she acts as if she’s performing a ritual of purifying herself.

[There surely is something going on]

Since she has never opened her eyes, and she has followers I can only assume that she’s someone of higher status or she has a special constitution. That’s why I’m focusing my observation on her and keeping a close eye to make sure I don’t miss anything.

She’s probably blind, that’s why I put my utmost attention to her. Even now she’s still hiding it, but with the help of my telescopic vision, I watched every movement of her body.

I will call her Ms. 8 and I shall watch her every move. My time spent on watching her wasn’t wasted!

(How dare you Republic to hide such weapon like that!)

[Indeed, this why elves are never to be underestimated]

I worked a farce in my head with a grin.

I’ve got time on my hands so I can’t help it.

When I found out about the reason of the downfall of the Empire it left a hole in my heart. And my hope is gone.

I was hoping that somehow, there are survivors that inherited and keep science alive to help me become a human again.

Unfortunately, reality was unforgiving and when the thought of me living like this for the rest of my life. I lost all will to live. I’m not sure what to do and the only thing I can do is to fool myself by playing this charades.

I have no one to talk to about my problems. In the first place, I don’t have anyone who would serve as my conversation partner.

I feel sad and lonely. I wonder how this world will treat me. Just the mere idea of it scares me. I hate to imagine it.

I looked at her boobs that sway and jiggle every time she moves.

This is annoying, even though I lost my partner I still have these sexual desires but thanks to this I can go watching naked elves without going crazy.

I’m thinking about such things while watching Ms. 8 leaving the river.

(Oh wow Aside from her humongus boobs she also has those great butts. Wonderful! Hmm. Let’s have wild boar for dinner)

In the end the great three desire wins.

I suck at thinking about difficult thing, so I started thinking if I should just really turn into a monster. I wonder if this s the same thing that happed to that man (spider)?

Personally, I don’t want to be like him and I don’t intend to as well. However I can’t stay like this forever. After all, it has been ten days since I return here and I’m worried that I might just end up adding more peeking points like this.

I got up and left he place as I was dismissing all those ideas, a sudden thought came to me.

(I guess I’ll have to deal with my frustration one thing at a time)

I came up with an unusually good idea, so I went back at the base and thought about my current situation.

Calm down and think. Food is a necessity. It’s one of the most important thing to live. Then why are we dissatisfied with it?

(That’s it! If I’m dissatisfied with how my food tase then I should solve it!)

Yes I wouldn’t made a drastic change to my meals, but what I need is salt. So the solution is easy!

(It’s time to go to Canaan!)

Since the kingdom of Canaan has a sea and salt is being distributed there very well.

I hurried back to my base packed my back and began my journey. Mith my back pack and my sledgehammer I sped through the forest. The sledgehammer was a bit warped because of the las goblin extermination and it still can be used for now.

I hadn’t thought of getting a new weapon, I think I should stop by Gisvaya, or on Aranvein, or in Goza or in Banai to look for one. However over all I don’t think I’m lacking in terms of commodities and convenience. In the topic of gaining information about the field of magic it’s out of reach. I can only hope that I can get my hand of some of it.

We reached Canaan, but I have no idea where I am with all this trees, but I’m pretty sure we’re at Canaan now.

(Now I just need to figure out where to get salt and spices… and some breads too)

The more I think about thing the more I add thing I want to get, it’s all thanks to those days where I have to endure those tasteless meals. The first thing I’m aiming for is a carriage. If not then a village.

I’m a monster now and it’s not rare for a being like me to raid a frontier village. I would not hesitate to suspend my mission to observe those elves to procure salts so I won’t choose my means.

Realistically that’s the only way. I don’t have any way to negotiate with how my vocal chords work and with how I look. Also, language barriers would be another issue.

Secondly, I’m sure that I’m on the watchlist of the mercenaries of Canaan Kingdom, so if they decided to take hostile actions I will fight back without hesitation.

As I movce through the forest, I tried recalling the spots for hunting of Canaan Kingdom.

(Now I wonder, which road should I take? Would taking north would lead me to the source of the salts? I wonder which one do the merchants use?)

I went through the forest, crossed the highway and enter the forest again. By the time I reached the mountain up north, it’s already dark. My current location is on the other side of the base we used when we stayed at Glenda. It’s north-northwest area near a newly established town whose name I don’t know.

It’s pretty obvious that this town is a relay for Canaan’s ambition to conquer the south and they definitely going to take advantage of it.

(Given that they weren’t able to expand their territory in 200 years, there must have been a reason they couldn’t do it. Same with Seizelia, they should have been able to expand west ward too, I wonder what the hell happened.)

I can only make prediction, but I have no proper idea what’s started for them to embark their expansion now. Since I can’t think of any idea, lets just stop thinking about it anymore.

Even if the sun already set, I still have to move, because I don’t have anything that can be called a base. Even I found one it may not have any water source. On the other hand if I continue up north I will reach <Agrinea> which was once occupied by the Empire. It would be the best choice to go to.

(After all, the problem with water always follows me wherever I go)

No matter how powerful my abilities are it’s something that I can’t do about.

After letting out a sigh, I took a drink of water and took a breath, and suddenly I heard a noise.

I heard people talking in a place and time like this.

(This is nothing short of suspicious.)

Being in this mountain at this hour of the day is nothing short of suspicious. I decided to floow the sound using my hearing and smell since my visual ability would only be hindered by the poor visibility in the area. After moving northwest I found a place with slight light peeking through

A heard voice leaking out of it slightly. I failed to make out of what they’re talking about but I could determine that several of them are shouting excitedly.

As I approach the source of the light, I started seeing what seems to be a lumberjack hut. I approach it with my mimicry skill and take up an advantageous position and uses my telescopic vision to peek through

(Ah yep they lok like bandits)

He has a very poor appearance. Filthy would better suit for it. Red haired shabby looking man with a stubbled beard is shouting with a curved sword in his hand.

I decided to approach it ignoring the condition on the hut since I already assumed that there’s no threat. When I opened the hut, I found the man I just saw, plus three more bandit and a corpse of a dead man.

Hello? Yes, we have a case here.
