Chapter 63: Learning accelerated alchemy

Mac had to leave before curfew, so she returned to the castle. 

It was getting late, so Nell and I decided to go to bed. 

“Oh, I forgot to buy snacks for Neko-san.”

Nell says in stilted tones. 

Right, she got pocket money. 

“I promise I’ll buy you some tomorrow, and I hope you’ll stay for the rest of the day.”

She was using this as an excuse to keep me around longer. 

Nell has the talent to be a naughty child. 

[I’ll leave right after breakfast tomorrow.]

Although disappointed, she said, “Come back in three days!”

I agreed. 

And we went to bed. 

◇ ◇ ◇ ◇

The next morning. 

After eating breakfast, we parted ways with Nell and headed out of town and into the forest. 

Didn’t I set a trap in the river?

I walked down the river and pulled the trap from where it was set. 

There were three blackfish in it.

Common blackfish.

……I thought the translation for devilfish was octopus. 

Oh, well. 

Are these fish edible?

Result: Possible. There is no biological concentration of poison, and humans and magical beasts consume it.

Hmmm.

The appraisal is useful. 

I would return home after storing the trap in my four-dimensional space. 

◇ ◇ ◇ ◇

Along the way, I stopped by Flamberge’s tomb. 

A stone statue was resting there. 

The statue started to move when I took out the trap, pulled out a fish, and tried to make an offering. 

“Grrrr… (Ah, the wonder cat?

The humans see me as an enemy. 

Please wait a moment before I can express my gratitude).”

[Don’t worry about it.]

“Roarrr! (Oh! 

A fresh fish!

Thank you!)”

After eating the fish, Flamberge said he felt better and went to clear the dungeon. 

What’s a dungeon?

Oh, well. 

Back to the woodhouse. 

◇ ◇ ◇ ◇

Aurene was nowhere to be found, probably walking in the forest as usual. 

I opened the book that Mac had given me earlier. 

There were some alchemy spells written down in the back. 

It was probably Mac’s note. 

Maybe if I cast a spell, I can use alchemy, too?

Alright, let’s give it a try. 

I took out the wild boar’s skin. 

Then I put it inside a big jar, shove some plants around it, and fill it with water. 

This is a method for tanning called tannin tanning. 

Nowadays, tanning using chromium is the most common method. But in earlier times, this method was used. 

Tannin, a water-soluble substance in plants, prevents the skin from deteriorating. 

“Nyaa— (Kronos’ Blessings. Accelerated Alchemy.)”

Huh, I succeeded. 

The hide has changed color. 

The downside of tannin tanning is that you have to change the tanning liquid many times, and the process takes a long time. 

It takes about a month. 

Once I changed the tanning liquid and repeated the process several times, I was able to get a good tanning result. 

I will put some stone weights on the hide and hang them out to dry.
