The next morning. I’m eating the breakfast offered in the dining hall.
It’s a soup with meat slices.
There are onion and spices, and I don’t think there’s anything dangerous for a cat.
Slurp. There’s no salt in it.
Too much salt isn’t good for a cat.
It’s terrible for the kidney.
My tongue was great. I could lick the piping hot soup with no problem.
Perhaps I’m not a cat.
And just like that, I quickly emptied the plate.
Thank you for the food.
Now, let’s leave the town.
I stand in front of the entrance and push the door open with my body.
「Are you going to go, Neko-san? 」
I could see the little girl called Nell looks at my direction.
There were tears in her eyes.
If you cry again, I’ll be in trouble. What should I do?
Oh, I can do that.
I take out a little Basilisk skin from my Four-dimensional Space, then I prick myself with my nails and use the blood to write letters on the Basilisk skin.
『I’ll visit again. Thank you. 』
I showed the letter that I wrote to the girl.
She looked at the letter.
「Then, it’s a promise! 」
She sends me off with a smile on her face.
That was nice.
It’s good that my crash course in the local language turns out well.
After leaving the inn, I head for the woods.
The smell of the town doesn’t bother me anymore.
I can’t believe that my nose got used to these smells.
◇ ◇ ◇ ◇
「Mom! Neko-san said he will come back again! 」
「Really? That’s good. 」
Of course, Nancy didn’t take what her daughter said seriously.
However, it would be troublesome if her daughter cried, so she decided to appease her with an adequate response.
