Chapter 18 – Food….Again

 

Water seems to have been secured.

I think how convenient magic is again.

I’m glad but what I understand about it is too subtle.

Now that there’s no problem with water, the next thing I need to secure is food.

In order not to repeat the same mistake, I challenged magic again.

「Beef bowl」

It seems like no matter how delicious I imagine it, it won’t appear.

After that, I tried uncooked vegetables and meat.

「Cabbage」

….

「Chicken」

If cabbage is impossible and chicken is impossible too, why did I even try this in the first place!

Seeing how Koa and the others look at me, I want to dig a hole and bury myself there.

I took a deep breath.

I therefore conclude that it is impossible to get food using magic.

Then, what should I do?

For now, let’s find nuts!

Mushrooms are scary so no.

This is a forest so there must be something I can eat.

I explore the cave area.

There’s no nut but this place is purified.

There’s only one gigantic tree here.

There are small trees but there are no flowers or fruits.

I’m in trouble.

Hio head butts me.

I was surprised since it was sudden but why?

To the surprised me, Hio nodded.

And it runs out of the barrier with Shion and Kurou.

Eh?

The three of them ran somewhere.

What happened?

When I looked at Koa, she just looked back and nodded.

Excuse me but even if you nod.

Eh, could it be that they left me?

No, maybe not.

When I made a troubled face, Koa also had a troubled face.

I managed to distinguish Koa’s troubled face.

However, I know that she’s like that because we can’t understand each other.

By the way, what should I do?

I want to wait for Hio and the others but I don’t know when they’ll come back.

I want to do something about the food problem as soon as possible….

Calm down and start exploring.

….let’s believe that they’ll come back.

I’ve discovered the secrets of the cave.

That’s what I want to say.

I’m just a newbie in terms of exploration.

…….

I found an entrance.

We were using the entrance of the space near the top of the rocky mountain.

What I found was an entrance that can be accessed from the ground.

Let’s not act rashly and go inside.

Absolutely don’t.

Even if my heart calls to explore it, I won’t go in there.

I casted spatial recognition.

The image emerges in my head.

No matter how many times I do this, it really gives off a strange feeling.

I examined the cave from the projected image.

I thought that it was a fairly wide cave but when I saw the projection, it was wider than expected.

….Moreover, there seems to be a slope in the cave.

When I moved up the slope, I found the part that can be considered as the 2nd floor.

The second floor is also wide….ah, there’s another slope.

This is probably similar to a three-story building.

Oh, it’s a four-story building.

The place where we were is the top.

My heart is pounding and I feel excited.

I have found a basement!

Below the cave….the tension rises.

…….

The rising tension fell at once.

As confirmed by the spatial recognition, I found something.

…I found a lump of black.

I hate curses.
