My eyes returned to the screen after staring at the ceiling for a while. There was the mysterious pharmacists who suddenly appeared, and Lodis who seemed to be surprised and confused by Chem’s behaviour.
Chem is not in any condition to talk, so Lodis convinced himself to read the bible lying on the ground.
It was the revelation for the day, and I was able to successful do it as the hands of the clock just crossed midnight. By the way, the content of the revelation was as follows:
“Mercy to my brave warrior. He shall yet to return to my embrace. Fate has led the pharmacist to your aid. Hardships will come, but don’t forget that I am always watching over you.”
I still write like a God but what about it?
If you think about it, if the characters could understand the first revelation then they shouldn’t have any difficulties understanding anything I type next.
However, since dignity and sincerity can be lost, divinity might also disappear from the revelation.
I wanted to try the God version this time, with a light tone some other times. Maybe when I have more fate points.
I don’t think anything else will happen. Gams was still sleeping but still I continued watching the screen.
After the execution of the revelation, I couldn’t do anything, but still I kept on watching through the night.
Gams seemed to be completely out of danger and was sleeping peacefully.
The villagers had already woken up at six o’clock in the early morning and have started their own work.
Chem continued to take care of her brother.
Lodis appears to be aware that he is the only man who can use weapons, so he was guarding the area.
Laila and Carol were preparing breakfast.
The traveling pharmacist took out a small mortar and prepared some medicine.
“So that’s how a pharmacist works.”
While everyone is working, the pharmacist started to speak.
“My family has been pharmacists for generations. This place is called Forbidden Forest and there are numerous monsters here but there are also abundant medicinal herbs too. Last night, after picking medicinal herbs and starting preparations for a camp, I saw a pillar of light in the forest. To be honest, I was wondering whether I should investigate it, but my heart started to shudder when I thought of leaving.
“It was the guidance of God.”
“My family and I do not believe in God because we work with nature but yesterday’s events…. might really have been performed by God.”
Is the pharmacist an atheist?
He admitted to the existence of God but believing in him seems like a different story.
More importantly, will the pharmacist immediately leave?
“Even though the patient is out of danger, you should still take care for him for a while… If it’s OK with everyone, I can stay and help tend to his wounds.”
“Of course!!! Please stay … But lodging might be a problem for us right now….”
I am relieved that the pharmacist decided to stay for a while…
However, as Chem said, the problem is where can he stay? The carriage is full, so if the pharmacist stays inside then someone has to sleep outside.
Although this time they managed to just get through the situation, this is only temporary. If some black dogs attack again then their annihilation is inevitable.
” Then should I use my fate points again…”
Even though Gams was saved, he probably can’t move for a few days.
Mr. Lodis would need to protect everyone but I can’t rely solely on him.
Now, what they need is shelter.
While I was still racking my brain, the pharmacist exclaimed:
“That’s right! There is an abandoned mine nearby. That would prevent rain and wind, and I think that there is still furniture that was used by the miners in there.”
Really? It seems like the pharmacist is a bit familiar with the area, and there’s a cave nearby. I’m really grateful.
There was no objection, and everyone headed towards the cave.
They followed the pharmacist with Gams lying in the carriage.
The group arrived at their destination within 15 minutes.
There was a place covered with a large metallic plate on the slope of the mountains surface. The plate is curved with a radius of 3 meters that seems to cover the entire entrance to the cave.
There was a pair of doors behind the plate. A large double door and a smaller single door.
“This large door is for the carriage and the smaller one is the original entrance.”
As he said, the double doors are large enough to accommodate a carriage, and the single door is like a door that is present in a typical home.
“It seems that the ores were completely mined here, and the mine seems to be abandoned after another metal vein was found. This place also seemed to house the miners when it was operating.”
The pharmacist opened the door and urged everyone to go inside.
The video on the screen changed. The cave was not properly visible.
“Isn’t it wider than I thought?”
Inside there was enough space to accommodate everyone as well as the carriage.
The inside of the cave is not a straight tunnel, but instead small holes were dug, and doors are attached to them.
It seems like a considerable amount of time has passed since the cave last had visitors.
Still, the villagers jumped into the cave with their eyes shining because of the difference in here compared to a wandering carriage life.
“Oh, there are proper rooms here!”
When Lodis opened the door and confirmed what was inside, he cheered.
“It looks like that miners dug themselves private rooms.”
As the pharmacist was explaining, the villagers were curious about their new residence so therefore no one was paying attention.
Everyone started exploring the cave.
“There is spring water flowing in and it looks like there’s a stone kiln as well as everything else you need for housework.”
“First of all, lets clean this place up.”
Carol was jumping around, while Lila was standing behind her with folded arms.
Now, they’ve found a secure place to spend their nights and sleep peacefully.
The plate that secures the cave is also thickly reinforced with an iron frame, so it won’t not be destroyed easily.
Now it seems that we can finally start building our village in earnest.
