Chapter 60: Reconstruction work and me working as hard as I can



Translated by X-tremeEdited by X-treme


My first night in this village ended as I heard the sound of bells ringing. I slept well last night without dreaming, so waking up was not bad. I felt both hopeful and anxious that I would be back in Hokkaido when I woke up, but all I could see was the inside of the tent.


“I thought it was a dream.”


I heard a movement next to me, so I turned my head and saw Destiny peeking out from under the blanket. This is a very unsexy development.


“Hey, everybody, breakfast is ready!”


The village is still in the process of development, so Lodis is in charge of all the food and provides breakfast, lunch and dinner for everyone in the dining hall. The ringing of the bell earlier was a signal that breakfast was ready. The bells didn’t exist back when I was watching, so they must have been bought or given from Doldold.


“Breakfast. You want to come with me?”


Destiny was rubbing his eyes sleepily, but he climbed up from my legs onto my shoulders. Then, with a huge yawn, he threw his whole body on my shoulder and laid down on his back.


“You want me to carry you?”


I was slightly annoyed that he raised his right paw lightly and waved it. Carol said that Destiny is recognized by the villagers as the servant of the squire, and yesterday he seemed to be satisfied with the food tribute.


You were born in this world, but you grew up in Japan, so let’s get along, even if we don’t know anyone. I patted the head of Destiny, who was lying on my shoulder, and left the tent.


The village cafeteria is a structure with only log posts and a roof, so I go there and take a seat at the end of the table where there are few people. The villagers would get nervous if I went near them, so I carefully kept my distance. The people handing out breakfast seem to be women or people who are not good at manual labor. Carol is helping to carry the food, smiling and enjoying herself.


“Good morning, Yoshio.”


As soon as I put the food in front of me, Carol greeted me cheerfully. She seemed to have changed her clothes into something from this world. My sister’s old clothes looked good on her, but she felt more comfortable in these.


“Good morning. You’re full of energy today.”


“Yeah! Carol, can I join you?”


“Sure. I’ll eat with you.”


I’d even like to ask her to do it for me. The other villagers treat me like I’m special and don’t talk to me, but I hope that if they see Carol’s casual approach to them, they will eventually feel closer to……me.


“What are you going to do today, Yoshio?”


“Well, I’m going to carry dirt from the cave.”


Building and processing wood seemed to be the work of the elves, Kang and Ran, and I were not involved. A total of five people, including Gams, Murus, and three new young men from the village, are in charge of hunting monsters and gathering food around the village. When there are too many monsters, Kang, Ran, and the elves will join them.


With double the number of people who can fight, the village’s defense has become quite strong. I have a desire to see the scenery around this village, but I’m afraid I’ll only be a burden if we encounter a monster, so I restrain myself. As a result, there’s only so much I can do.


“I’d really like you to relax.”


Sitting next to Carol, diagonally in front of me, was Chem.


“The food you eat without doing anything doesn’t taste very good.”


I used to feel more comfortable eating alone because I didn’t have to be nagged, and I never wanted to eat with anyone.


“Oh, yes, that’s right. This is the Bible that Carol and I came with, would you mind if I kept it while I’m here?”


“Not at all.”


I want to give it back to Chem because he cherished it, but I don’t want to part with it while I’m in this world.


“As for the oracle, if he has anything to tell me, he will tell me directly. Now that he has used his power to bring Carol and me into this world, please consider that the oracle will be less frequent for a while to allow his body to rest.”


I’ll set it up as……It’s not that I’m tired of thinking of oracles everyday. In addition, it’s easier to talk to them directly when I’ m here. After eating, I took a short break and was about to……start working with the villagers, but before that, I had to go somewhere.


“Do you mind if I come in?”


I called out to him in front of the wooden hut.


“Come in.”


“Okay.”


The two voices came back from inside. When I opened the door, I saw two……red pandas cutting wood. Kang and Ran seemed to be working on a piece of wood. This is the place where they work every day because they cannot keep up with the production of furniture and tools due to the increase in the number of people. If they were free, I’d like to pet their fluffy fur, but I’ll try to hold back.


“What do you want, squire?”


When I see her turn around and tilt her head, my cheeks naturally start to relax. Damn, it’s twice as attractive when you see it in person.


“I heard that Mr. Kang and Mrs. Ran can also work with metal.”


“Yes. The dwarves taught us.”



“As long as it’s not too complicated.”


They were pointing to a furnace and what looked like an anvil. There were a number of swords and arrowheads nearby. Were they made by them?


“So could you make something like this?”


I show him a certain item I’ve looked up on my phone beforehand.


“A long spear?”


“But with a weird tip.”


“It’s like a weapon used by the gods. What do you think?”


They were both staring at the screen of the phone, but suddenly turned to look at me and gave a small nod. I want to squeeze you.


“Can I ask you to produce it when you’re free?”


“Sure.”


They readily agreed. I guess that’s the advantage of being a messenger of God. I was sorry to leave, but I couldn’t interfere with their work any longer, so I headed to my own workshop.


*****


I’m digging hard with a pickaxe at the remains of the cave, but it’s a task that never seems to end. I pull over a nearby crate and place my phone and charger on it. It’s solar-powered, so I have to do it now when the weather is clear.


“Even though it’s what I wanted, it’s……very plain.”


I’ve always had a strong image of transferring to another world or being reincarnated to another world, where you can slay monsters, be appreciated by the inhabitants of the other world, and be popular.


“Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, haha!”


While picturing in my mind an image of me accumulating chi and sending it flying, I repeatedly thrust my hand out like a sumo wrestler, but nothing came out. I tried jumping on the spot to see if there was a possibility that my physical abilities had actually increased, but it was the same as usual.


“Okay, let’s get serious!”


Don’t expect any warrior or cheat harem type development. I’ve been working diligently for about two hours, with a break in between, when I hear the sound of bells again. It was more intense than the breakfast signal, and the interval was shorter. The sound made me uneasy.


“Monsters are coming near the fence. Everyone, please move away from the fence area!”


That’s Chem’s voice. I searched for the source of the sound and found her on top of the watchtower. A bell the size of a man’s head was set up there.


“The watchtower looks great. Did you rebuild it?”


Before, there was only enough space for two people, but now it looks like five people can easily fit. When I looked around again, I saw that there were four similar watchtowers standing near the log fence.


The number of monsters that attacked them in the “Temptation of the Evil God” was extraordinary. The villagers told me that most of the structures outside as well as inside the cave had been destroyed. I moved to the watchtower and climbed up the ladder while watching the villagers buzzing about the monster attack.


“Chem, where are the enemies coming from?”


“Oh, Master Yoshio! In the woods to the northeast.”


The guards were Chem and a newcomer, an elf, so I greeted them both and turned my gaze in the direction they were pointing. The trees around the fence had been cleared, but beyond that was a dense forest. Through the gaps in the trees, we could see a pack of black dogs. Gams and the rest of the team had already returned and were standing in front of the fence.


Not only the elves here, but also the other elves have taken up positions on top of another watchtower and are setting up their bows. I’ll have to keep a close eye on them and see how they fight.


Six black dogs jumped out from the boundary of the forest. Three of them were pierced and killed by the elves’ long range shots. The fantasy setting of elves being expert archers seems to be applicable to this world. Of the remaining three, Gams sliced through two of them with his left and right swords. The last one was killed by the rest of the villagers with a spear.


“It’s amazing.”


When I first started《The Village of Destiny》, there was nothing but despair if they were to be attacked by that many black dogs, but now they can handle it with ease. The defense capability is a world apart from what it was back then.


“You’ve all been working very hard.”


Chem face was proud as she smiled.


“The reason why everyone is able to fight with courage is because you, a user of healing magic, is standing behind them. Thank you for always healing and supporting the villagers.”


Chem had been underestimating herself for some time and was concerned that she was not being useful in battle, so she took the opportunity to bow her head in thanks on behalf of the villagers. In fact, I was thinking of sending a text of praise from the gods in the form of an oracle, but I was hesitant to do so because I was afraid of favoring one villager over another.


“Oh, no! Please raise your head!”


I couldn’t help but smile when I saw Chem shaking her hands and head violently from side to side in distraught.


“Thank you, Yoshio-sama. Your words have lifted a heavy burden from my heart.”


“God appreciates all the villagers, even you. Of course, I feel the same way as God.”


I know I’m flattering myself, but didn’t I sound like a follower of God in this conversation! I think you have a surprising talent for acting. I’ve been deceiving my family about the 《The Village of Destiny》and acting as a follower of God to Carol. A talent for lying is not something to be proud of, let’s reflect on it. Then we thanked each other and chatted.


“Oh, I have to prepare lunch.”


With a sudden clap of her hands, Chem rushed down the ladder. Is it time for lunch already? Time flies when you’re in this village. When I was a NEET, there was nothing to do but watch videos, play games, and kill time on the Internet.


Every day was depressing and I hated the sunny hours when most people were working. Now, the sunshine and the wind blowing through the air are pleasant. It’s amazing how much the world can change depending on how you feel. I went downstairs and ran over to Laila, who was working in the kitchen, and asked her to let me help her with something.
