NPC Town Building Game - Chapter 12 (1/2): Suspicious Person And My Muscle Pain
Editor: Kylerboi, SunderMind
It was already noon by the time I woke up the next day.
Some time ago, it was normal for me to wake-up at this time, but now, it’s unusual.
Because my body was so exhausted from all the night-time work I didn’t know when I fell asleep.
“No, No … Argh!”
I tried stretching my arms and thighs, but then they started violently aching.
This is definitely muscle pain.
My whole body is going numb, especially my thighs. Muscle training stimulates the untrained muscles by walking and standing just like a new born baby.
Somehow, despite my current state, I managed to sit down on the chair in front of the PC to check out the villagers.
It looked like their normal daily routine.
“Now, let’s see if something happened before I woke up.”
I checked the conversation logs up to now and there wasn’t any change in particular, but wait….what is this?
There was a character with a meaningful whisper.
Someone was talking alone in the early morning when no one was awake.
I carefully checked over the conversation of said person.
“There are no suspicious movements so far. They are just refugees. Yes, the risk is very low. I’ll come back after scouting some more. ”
Speaking as if communicating with someone.
If I could see the video, then the situation would have been easier to understand. But unfortunately, I am only capable of reading the conversations.
“Even if we don’t do anything, they will be destroyed by the Temptation of the Evil God. The humans and filthy dwarves who used to live in this place have already been annihilated. ”
Just now, there was an important remark.
So Humans and Dwarves used to live in this current residence.
Dwarf is a very familiar race from the fantasy genre. They are shorter than humans, have long beards and are muscular. The standard setting is that they are dexterous and good at smithing.
So there are Dwarves in this game? They seem to be another major race. Are we going to meet them someday?
“The only thing that is troubling me is that they are blessed by God of Destiny. If we do something like this then we might invite the wrath of God. So, as I said earlier, we should only observe without interfering. ……Yes. Understood. We will judge those who have entered our sanctuary.”
These are the only contents of the conversation, but the information so far is sufficient enough to know who said it, even though I don’t understand the exact details.
There is currently only one person who is watching and doesn’t have the identity of being a villager.
I thought that he was a reliable pharmacist, but you came for this? I wasn’t convinced that so little fate points were needed to summon such a rare talent, but now I understand.
So the story is something like…He is living in this forest with his family, but he is wary of the sudden appearance of the villagers.
The only thing I can rest assured of, is that he doesn’t intend to cause harm. There is no need to worry about Murus doing something strange before the end of the month.
“The setting that they are watched by the God of Fate helped. Is my presence being helpful to the villagers?”
I’m a little happy about that.
Since he fears the existence of the God of Fate, Murus can be left alone for now.
However, because I considered Murus as one of our precious forces, I am now worried about the Temptation of the Evil God at the end of the month. I can’t rely on him anymore.
I am worried, but let’s eat first. My stomach is growling, even though I had eaten late at night.
When I got down, my mother was washing dishes in the kitchen.
“Oh, you woke up. Wait a minute, let me warm up your lunch.”
“Don’t worry, I’ll do it myself.”
While I was eating the dinner from the last evening, my mother finished washing the dishes and came to sit in front of me.
“How was your job?”
“Everyone was good and the work was very easy.”
“Oh, that’s right. You seemed to have worked hard.”
My mother smiles happily.
It feels very strange being praised for something which should be normal.
“How was the evening meal yesterday?”
“It was delicious. Ah… thank you.. for yesterday.”
[ Ok Asada here. Let me be honest. I knew all along that the mother was the one who made the dinner and readied the bath but I noticed the strangeness of the event and got greedy. Greedy for what? Of course for comments….so I asked you to judge whether it was her sister or mother. Well It was a good strategy to attract you all 😀 ]
I’m embarrassed, but I have to thank properly.
Because of the villagers my spirits have been raised, and now I am able to maintain a good relationship with my family. I am really thankful to them.
I feel like I’m their Apprentice.
“So it was delicious. Fufu. You’re being very honest today.”
