The Strongest Wizard Becomes a Countryside Guardsman After Taking an Arrow to the Knee - Chapter 412
I was thankful they still worried about me.
Chel had healed the curse in my knee, however.
That was after I killed Chel’s predecessor.
From then, my knee hasn’t hurt very badly.
Actually, Chel was on that knee right now, jiggling.
『Curse was healed』
Chel told me this just so I was sure the curse was gone.
Chel had to be the most knowledgeable about that immortal killer arrow.
「Okay, everyone rest. I’ll take a look at the dungeon myself.」
「What? You’re going by yourself?!」
Cruz was surprised and stood up from her chair with a clunk.
「Well, just a little look.」
「No! You’re not keeping that dungeon all to yourself!」
Moofy’s face peeked out from between Cruz’s leg as they both protested.
I ignored Moofy and told Cruz,
「Just a bit, it’ll be okay.」
「You’re just planning on killing that immortal demon alone!」
「That’s not true…」
Cruz was right though, so I was a bit taken aback.
I knew that for some reason she wanted to enjoy exploring the dungeon as well.
I knew how she felt as it had been a while since we had raided a dungeon.
If that were so, I guess we should wait a day.
Cruz always worked so hard. I guess I should let her enjoy the dungeon with me.
「Okay, then we’ll go check the dungeon tomorrow.」
「Even so, we can’t just let that portal be. We need to seal it.」
It would suck if a monster got free from the circle.
Before a magic mouse came out so it was possible.
「That’s fine!」「Moo moo!」
「Then I’ll help!」「ryaa!」
Vi-Vi, Moofy, Timi, and Shiggy all answered.
「I’m going to help with yesterday’s reconstruction after checking the circle.」
「It’s fine, Mr. Alra, almost all the work is done.」
「Yeah, because of the hero, Luka, Yureena, and Timi’s cooperation.」
I guess they fixed the town up while I was sleeping.
「Everything else is the responsibility of the craftsmen, so no bother Alra.」
Elkay was quite poor. There weren’t enough jobs.
This might provide some employment for the people.
「I know…if you need me, just let me know.」
After lunch was over , we all split.
Belda went back to the agent’s house, while the others went back to their respective places.
Vi-Vi, Timi, and I went to Jearl’s stable.
There was a transfer circle there after all.
All the beasts were with us as well.
「Belda’s a hard worker.」
「Yeah, she does her best.」
「She’s young, not like you, Al.」
Vi-Vi said, snickering.
Belda was in her 20s while Vi-Vi and Cruz was in their teens.
「Continuous late nights do wear you down.」
「You feel the same, Alra?」
「All humans do.」
Timi said, thinking something over.
As we talked, we ventured to the middle of Elkay.
As Belda said, all the confusion was pretty much over.
There were a lot of houses damaged, but the road stones were almost all fixed.
「That was fast.」
「Yeah. Timi did a lot to fix everything.」
「So did you, Cruz.」
Timi was an ancient dragon. Even in human form she had far more power than a human.
Moofy looked like a little cow even though she could become a lot bigger. 10 times more powerful than an ox.
Cruz also was way stronger than most people.
「There are a lot of broken buildings. I wonder what will happen to those that lived there.」
「There are a lot of empty houses.」
「You’re right. After looking it over from the sky, there they’re all living over there.」
I guess with the agent’s authority, she allowed them to live in the empty homes.
「I’m glad they had somewhere to stay.」
It was winter, and no home meant no life.
Since Elkay had been depopulated, this would actually mean some of the homes got fixed up.
As Belda said, there was a lot of work to be done.
「Even so, people are quite busy.」
Belda had given commands to carpenters and masons with which buildings to fix and they were all beating away rhythmically with their hammers and tools.
「And with Millia selling everything wholesale, it’s enough.」
Even after the Lord of the Undead and his demon friend had attacked, the rebuilding of Elkay had already begun.
