Chapter 25 – Elixir

Prev | Next


We went back to the town.

 This time, I used【Teleportation】to the back alley with no people instead of the fountain square.
 Since we know that【Aristocracy Union Knight Leader】is aiming at us, we must keep a low profile.

 We have decided to have lunch in the dining room along the main street.

 The dish came out, it has a simple flavor.
 Because I’m accustomed to strong flavored meal in Japan, it feels rather bland. Perhaps it lacks【Zinc】?

「While eating, we should talk about what are we going to do from now on.」
「From now on?」
「I think, we should stay at an inn today then head back to Japan tomorrow morning.」
「Eh!- I want to do a little more sightseeing~」

「You understand that the【Aristocracy Union Knight Leader】is aiming at us, right?」
「Oh, is that so, I’m being targeted? Is he aiming at onii-chan or Elena-san?」
「Perhaps, both. I think, he’s aim is to kill me and recapture Elena.」
「I see, that adventurer was going to take Elena-san too.」

「For that reason, I think it’s better not to stay long in this town.」
「But, with onii-chan’s current【Teleportation】, we can only come to this town, right?」
「That’s the problem, what to do…… let’s think about it later. After this, let’s go see the【Merchant’s guild】at once and make a little money then after securing an inn, we’ll go the the church.」

「【Merchant’s guild】? Isn’t it like, we’re going to go to【Adventurer’s guild】and then we’ll encounter a strange guy, that kind of template?」
「It’s a real world not template.」

***

 We left the dining room and went to the【Merchant’s guild】.

「Oh, it’s Seiji-sama, welcome.」

 A boss-like ossan called out to us while rubbing his hands together.

「Uhh…have we met?」
「My apologies for the late introduction. My name is『Gilde』, the vice-guild master. I’m pleased to make your acquaintance.」
「Thanks.」

「The other day, you sold to us a very valuable thing, it was very helpful. So, what kind of business we have today?」
「Again, I was thinking of selling something.」
「I see, I see, I see, then, please come this way.」

 We aren’t brought to the counter but to the private room in the back instead.

「I’ll get to the point Seiji-sama, if you still have the salt you sold to us the other day, I would like to purchase it at 3 times the previous price. How about it?」

「3 times!?」

 Hmmmm… it’s just a salt, why did it gain such a price?
 It’s somewhat suspicious.

 Certainly the previous transaction is about 10000 Aurum per 100 g.
 1 Aurum should be about 100 yen…… 1 million yen!?
 Now it’s 3 times therefore it should be about 3 million yen……

 As expected, I should see what’s behind this.
 Let’s not jump right off the bat, I need to get more information before making a deal.

「I don’t have anymore of those salt, I’m sorry.」
「Is that so, it’s regrettable.」

「In fact, we came to the merchant guild because there is something I would like to ask.」
「You want to ask?」
「I want to ask about【Elixir】.」
「【Elixir】!?」

 As soon as I mentioned【Elixir】, Gilde’s face turned pale. What’s wrong exactly?

「Is something wrong?」
「Seiji-sama, it may not be beneficial to you.」
「Well, what do you mean?」

「You win…… All I know is this certain gentleman wants a stock of that salt so much, naturally because that【Salt】is one of the ingredients of【Elixir】.」

 What did you say!? 【Salt】is one of the ingredients of【Elixir】!?
 I tried my best to hide my astonishment.

「R-really now.」
「It’s the truth.」

 Did you mean,【Aristocracy Union Knight Leader】bought the【Salt】last time and used it to make an【Elixir】to heal his wrist?

「Did you mean, the client is【Aristocracy Union Knight Leader】?」

「!!? ……H-how did you know that much…… please forgive me for asking a confidential matter.」
「Oh, I understand now.」

 Hmmmm… if it goes to that guy, all the more reason I shouldn’t sell【Salt】anymore.

「Then, should I show you the goods I have this time?」
「Oh, this is it! We would like to buy this.」

 I take out a vinyl with white powder inside in a manner of taking it under the table.

「It looks like【Salt】but it’s different?」
「This is called【Sugar】.」
「【Sugar】? I had many dealing in this country, I thought I know all the goods…… it seems I’ve been conceited.」

 Apparently,【Sugar】doesn’t really exists in this country.

「Then, can I have a【Black tea】? I’m sorry, it’s a little delicacy of mine.」
「Yes, I understand.」

Chirinchirin

 The vice-guild master rang the bell and had a person to bring me a【Black tea】.

「Then, excuse me. You just need to put a necessary amount of【Sugar】in the black tea.」
「Is this something you put in a【Black tea】?」
「Well, there are also other applications. Please, go ahead and taste it.」

 The vice-guild master tastes the【Black tea】.

「Tsu!!? Ah, sweet!! However, this sweetness is good, on the contrary it brought out the flavor of the tea.」
「Now, please have this together with it.」
「This is?」
「This is a【Cookie】with【Sugar】.」
「N!? This is tasty!」

「How is it?」
「Is this【Sugar】made from【Honey】?」
「No, it was made from another ingredients.」

 Apparently【Honey】seems to exist.

「For the time being, I’ll buy it at the same price as【Honey】this time. I know cooks from various areas so I’ll ask them to use it and see, depending on their reaction will decide its price next time. Will that be alright?」
「Yes, please.」

 Finally, the【Sugar】was sold for 1000 Aurum per kg.
 It was cheaper compared to the【Salt】last time, so I can have dealings with【Sugar】at ease.

「Oh-, there are also goods like this.」

 I displayed【Lighter】,【Ball-point pen】and【Writing paper】before the vice-guild master.

「This is… I haven’t seen anything like this.」

「This is a magic tool called【Lighter】, it can be used to ignite something.」

Shubo~tsu

 I showed the ignited lighter.

「!!!? It’s so small, is this really an ignition magic tool !!?」

「And this is a 100 sheet of writing paper.」
「This paper is so thin and beautifully made.」

「And lastly this is a【Ball-point pen】, this is a【Pen】commonly used for writing letters.」
「This【Pen】has a strange shape. N? The pen point is also strange. Is it okay for me to try writing with it?」
「Yes, please.」

「Then, I’ll have them bring an【Ink】.」
「Oh, please wait. 【Ink】isn’t necessary when using this type of【Pen】.」

「 You said【Ink】isn’t necessary!? What do you mean?」
「Then, I’ll try writing with it.」

 Using【Ball-point pen】, I wrote a letter on the【Writing paper】.

「 You were able to write a letter without【Ink】!! Furthermore, the line is so thin!」

 In the end, the【Lighter】was sold for 1000 Aurum apiece,
 【Writing paper】was sold for 200 Aurum per book,
 【Ball-point pen】was sold for 200 Aurum apiece, I sold 10 of each respectively.

 Combined with the【Sugar】, a total of 15000 Aurum was the purchase.

      In the pre-industrial world salt was one of the most valuable commodities, useful for preservation of foods, a seasoning, used in dye production, tanning, and medicine. At one point in history roman legionnaires were paid in salt. So yeah salt would be worth way more to them than gimmick items like pens, paper or sugar.

    “We must keep a low profile.,” he says. Why not? With a bit more effort, they might finally be as inconspicuous as the giant ball of fire in the sky we call the sun.

    i think our ky kiske here needs a bigger harem. a little sister and a princess is way too small for a party, you’ll need a strong big breasted merchant girl at the very least, or maybe a rival little girl character who happens to be conveniently the captain of a ship.
