“Hanfell, please give me some shoes.”
“You don’t sound too sincere!”
“Hanfell…please give me…some shoes…”
“Hmph, I suppose I have no choice then. Come in.”
This little shit. Who does he think he is… Hitting people with hammers out of nowhere and then acting like this. If this was a lawless land, I’d separate his damned face from his body right about now.
The interior of the store was packed tightly with rows of shoes. If this guy made all of these, well, that was kind of impressive?
Each pair had a tag hanging from them. Let me see…
“‘Slight STR boost.’ So they are enchanted?”
“Yes. Did it myself.”
Huh…that was impressive. They say that you could make a living off of being an enchanter. If you could make shoes on top of that, you would be a great craftsman. Though this one had the worst personality.
“I’d want shoes that raise my AGI…”
“I’d like to…”
“Then look at those shelves. Just grab a pair and bring em here.”
I sigh at his attitude and walk to the shelf that he had pointed at. There were low cut and high cut shoes and even boots. I was currently wearing cheap low cut shoes. Hmm, maybe I’ll go for the high cut ones this time.
“These ones look quite nice?”
Daniela said next to me, as she picked up a pair of boots. The enchantment tag read, ‘Slight AGI boost’…
“Well, they’re kinda like the shoes I’m wearing now, no? I was thinking about some high cut ones this time.”
We continued to search together. There were so many designs, that it was difficult to choose. I didn’t even know much about shoes, but my eyes kept moving from one pair to another. Even the colors were varied. Colors…that could be important too. I was Silvergreen, so I should have colors that matched that. But the more classic brown colors weren’t bad either. Or I could go for black to match my hair color.
“What about these?”
Black high cut boots. The enchantment was ‘AGI boost.’ Not ‘Slight boost.’ The price tripled because of that, but it wasn’t outside of my reach. I still had some money left from that time we prevented a stampede.
“Hey, you little shi-…Hanfell. Is it difficult to cast AGI boost enchantments?”
“Were you just about to call me a little shit? Ah, well. That enchantment was the work of my older sister. I can only do slight boosts.”
Well, not too impressive now, huh? Okay, being able to do any enchantments at all was still great… I think I will buy these boots, though. And so I took them from Daniela and brought them to Hanfell.
“I’ll take these.”
“Ahh… But can you really afford these?”
Hmm. I’m rich, you know? I take out my money from the hollow bag and lay it on the counter.
“Oh, so you do have some money on you then.”
I give him my best smug expression.
“Don’t look so pleased with yourself!”
“Hmph. These shoes are now yours. This pair was made from accel panther leather. They are famous for their speed. And while they are very durable, you should take good care of them.”
“Yeah, yeah. Thanks.”
He was an annoying little shit until the end. However, these shoes were comfortable. I didn’t want to admit it, but he knew what he was doing. But then again, his face would appear in my head every time I walked. And maybe that was even worse than being cursed.
