I Decided to Search for Fish
“…Yes, it’s all there.”
I said after counting the money.
“Good. I’m very happy about this purchase.”
He said as he put the precious gemstones away in the back of the store—then he came back and said,
“Now… About this monster armor that I’m going to make for you—it should prioritize speed?”
“So you don’t need defense ability or anything… Then how about I make a collar for the Proud Wolf and a hat for the slimes?”
“I’ll leave it to you.”
I didn’t know anything about monster armor.
And so I thought that it would be better if the knowledgable master made what he thought would be good.
“I’m glad to hear you say that. Sometimes, people like to dictate every single little detail, and that prevents me from really testing the limits of its ability.”
He sounded very enthusiastic about what he was doing.
So, now that that was settled…I should ask about the price, just in case.
As he would be handling very special materials, I had a feeling it would turn out very expensive.
“So, how much is it going to cost to make it?”
“…Indeed. How about 1 million for both?”
1 million for both, huh.
It was cheaper than I was expecting. Perhaps it was because I had brought the materials in.
At least, it was a lot less than the money I had made off of selling the gemstones.
“All right. That’s fine with me.”
“Good. It’s a deal then. …I’ll be working on it all day tomorrow, so you can come and pick them up the day after that. They will be the best monster armor you can find.”
He said as he rolled a gemstone between his fingers.
…I was looking forward to it.
I thought about this as I spent the night at the inn. Then I left town the next morning.
My destination: the river with the Maneater Bass.
