At the age of seven, martial arts training began. Until then, he had spent his free time running around the large garden of the mansion, but from now on that time would be his training time. And once he had a certain amount of time to train, he would be able to go out on the streets.
I’ve been to town before with my parents and grandparents. But that didn’t get me where I wanted to go. Now I will finally be able to go wherever I want. This meant a lot to me.
“Then let’s start with the practice swing. Today you will swing until you fall over.”
“Lionel is a demon.”
“It would be nice if your father could have cut corners a little.”
“It’s suddenly hard….”
Under the guidance of Lionel, the Knight Commander, the bare knuckle swinging began. Of course, before that, Gyre was given a beating. It seems that he has an educational policy of showing no mercy to his own son. I’m glad I’m not a Knight Commander’s kid.
He swung his wooden sword with a buzzing sound. His occupation in the game was a wizard, but he also had a taste for swords and spears so that he could use them when his magic power was depleted or against opponents who were ineffective with magic. As such, he had a certain amount of skill.
“Oh, Master Julius, you have a good streak. That should be enough for you to join the Knights Order.”
But I had no intention of joining the Knights. If I joined the Knights and got injured, they would make me drink that recovery medicine. It was a definite no.
After a number of days of such pretences, I finally got permission to go out. Of course, I was escorted, but it was wonderful to be able to go where I wanted.
“Then let’s go to a nearby forest today.”
“Not the city, the forest?”
“What do you mean?”
The two of them who thought we were definitely going to the city had their eyes blank at my unexpected remark. Of course there is a reason.
“I’m looking for medicinal herbs in the forest. Maybe we’ll find anti-poisoning herbs and magic herbs.”
“What are you going to do when you find something like that?”
Christopher asked, nodding his head, if he was getting interested.
“That’s a really good question. I’m thinking of taking it home and planting it in my garden.”
“Planting it in a garden?”
“Yes. I’m thinking of planting it in my garden and cultivating it.”
“Can you do that?”
I somehow cheated. I have ‘cultivation’ skills, so I definitely think I can grow it, but I didn’t want to assert it. I am very uncomfortable when people ask me where I got such knowledge.
Because these two guys are connected to their parents. Even if they are my minions, I can’t let my guard down. It would be a disaster if I were to be exposed and worshipped as a child prodigy.
I jumped into the carriage that was prepared for me and headed for the nearby forest without taking a detour.
It was located just outside the city, and the territory’s inhabitants could be seen. That’s how safe it is. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have been able to get permission.
“Are there any monsters around?”
Gyre said, with a sense of excitement. For the time being, each of them has a wooden sword for self-defence.
“Well, are there monsters here? That’s a bit scary.”
Christopher, on the other hand, seems worried. This one seems more cautious. Gyre seems to be more suited to attack, while Christopher is more suited to defence. You have to be very careful with them.
“There are, but only slime will come out. Besides, even if you meet a monster, the escort will clean it up immediately.”
“‘Yes, of course!”
A relieved Christopher. A disappointed Gyre. They were opposites, but they got on well.
While we were talking, we arrived at a nearby forest. From here we are on foot. We can’t find medicinal herbs from inside the carriage.
As I got off the carriage, I could smell the scent of fresh greenery. The air seems to be clearer. Perhaps it was just my imagination. The two people who had gone down before us were also very curious and looked to the left and right.
“Then let’s get going.”
Two people stood in front of me. Yeah, they seem to have a good understanding of their position. Watch your step. There could be valuable material in there.
We walked through the forest for about an hour. When we were much further into the forest, we finally found some medicinal herbs.
“I knew I had to go deep to get it.”
“Is this a medicinal herb? It’s the first time I’ve seen it.”
“It just looks like grass to me.”
Gyre doesn’t seem interested. I don’t mind that, but I’d like them to be able to tell the difference.
“Bring me a jute bag. I’ll dig it up so don’t touch it.”
“Yes!? I will do it.”
“No, Christopher can’t do it yet. Let’s just accept his feelings.”
Christopher is a wimp, but if he does it, he will definitely fail. That’s how delicate transplanting medicinal herbs is. I have the ‘transplanting’ skills, so I’m sure I’ll succeed, but it wouldn’t be the same for anyone else.
That’s how I got some medicinal herb seedlings. and–.
“This is anti-poison weed! I finally found it. I must take this home with me.”
I went deep into the forest, but I could only find medicinal herbs. Just when I was about to give up on the idea that they do not grow in this forest, a distinctive yellow leaf caught my eye.
At that moment, the nearby bushes moved with a rustle.
