“Nnn…. Uwaaahhh!! Goblins!”

I shot up from bed, panicked adrenaline pumping through my veins as I jerked my head around. It was dark. No, it wasn’t. Fer was beside me, his fur glowing softly.

[8] I rubbed my face. That’s right, it was a nightmare. The actual event was over and it was just a nightmare. [6] I tried to reassure myself as I did some breathing exercises. It was dark now. I must have lost consciousness after the whole business…

“How was it? Nothing’s as good as a real fight to get the blood pumping, eh?”

‘Good’ you say…

You made me suffer such a terrible situation in the name of training, arggh! [1] This trauma, I’ll be seeing dirty green goblins in my nightmares for days to come, I just know it.

“Hmm, that final Fire Ball of yours was not bad,” Fer nodded approvingly, making little ‘un, un’ noises like a proud teacher. “Thanks to me, you can now use magic effectively.”

[8] “What are you talking about? Thanks to you I now suffer from a terrible trauma. A beginner should only do beginner stuff, like, like one or two Goblins or something. Did you have to throw me into the middle of a Goblin village?!”

So what if that last Fire Ball was great? Give me back my peace of mind! [5]

“It is your own fault for being such a slow learner,” was Fer’s majestic answer.

Gununu.

This is why I hate geniuses.

“Don’t compare me with yourself. I’m just an ordinary person! There’s no way I can do what a Legendary Beast like you do! You have your own [Appraisal] so you can see from my status that I’m nothing like you!” [5]

[8] “Nuu, status has nothing to do with learning… hm? Looks like you’ve levelled up.”

[4] “Wait, really?” I quickly chanted ‘Status Open’ to check my own status.

Yes! I levelled up!

My stamina, magic powers, and all other status points also increased.

I also gained Fire Magic as a skill.

Nice! I’m an actual magic user now, although… my occupation is still Guy Caught up in a Summoning Spell, eh.

I wonder if it would eventually change once my skill or level increases. [1] Please tell me it will change, don’t tell me I have to carry this occupation for the rest of my life.

No way, no way, I can’t accept this!

“Oh, by the way, take this.”

While I was busy having my crisis, Fer suddenly stood up and rolled a long green object towards me.

[8] “Aarrggh!”

[6] It was a Goblin!

A super large Goblin!

My [Appraisal] was still activated so it automatically spat out its status.

[6] [Goblin King].

A Goblin King…

[8] Mister Fer, when you said that you’re going to go after higher-ranking Goblins… you meant this?

[8] You actually brought me to a Goblin village with a Goblin King?

“By the way, there’s a magic stone in that Goblin King. Magic Stones can be exchanged for money in the human world right? Goblins are pretty useless and can’t be eaten, but that one has a magic stone. Which is why I took the trouble to bring it here.”

[8] “Ah, I see,” I studied the dead green body duly. “I heard from the dismantler that only B Rank monsters and above would develop a magic stone.”

“Humph, I don’t know about human measurements. However, great me can detect monsters with magic stones.”

“Oh, that’s useful,” I said automatically. Still not quite sure where this was supposed to go. “I guess that’s a good skill to have.”

“When master fainted, I had to carry you back along with this Goblin King. It was very hard for me you know? Moreover, I sat here all day waiting for you to wake up.”

“Ookay, just what are you trying to say?” and why are you looking at me from the corner of your eye like you’re waiting for me to catch a clue? [6] I don’t know, I don’t know, okay? Just spit out whatever you want to say!

“This Goblin King has a magic stone,”

“Sure,” [6] let’s play along for the moment. [5]

“Magic stones could be exchanged for money,”

“Yeah?” [6] where are you going with this? [5]

“Surely you should reward me with Other World Feast?”

“Haaaaaa?” this guy!!! So your target is the Japanese Wagyu Steak?! [5]

No way am I going to just give in like this! “A-anyway, I only have the money we exchanged from the monsters last time. Moreover, how do you expect me to sell this Goblin King’s magic stone in the middle of the forest?”

Mu, I guess it can’t be helped, just make whatever. I’m getting hungry,” [5]

This beast… maa, whatever, I can’t expect logic from a beast. [2] I got up to make food but soon fell flat on my face. Ugh, is this what magic exhaustion means? I feel tired and nauseous, I can hardly sit up let alone cook. [5]

[8] Weakly, I opened [Net Super] and bought a whole bunch of stuff. No meat though, because I’m still mad at Fer. Sweets, a tired body needs sugar to recover.

My target is sweet buns!

My favourites are red bean paste and strawberry jam so I got five of each. Fer eats a lot, so let’s get some cream-filled buns too. Since I’m on a sugar spree, let’s get a canned coffee too. The sugar hit from that could probably wake the dead. Oooh, it comes in a pack, great, let’s get half a dozen.

I really wanted to restock my vegetables and seasonings, but I guess that could wait.

[8] After recklessly topping up the [Net Super] with 5 gold coins, exhaustion really messes with the mind, I bought everything I wanted and spent the next few minutes opening up the plastic packages and dumping the sweet buns onto Fer’s bowl.

Fer frowned at the buns, “What are these?”

“Sweet buns. There’s red bean paste, strawberry jam and cream buns here, enjoy.” I said tersely.

Muu, there’s no meat?”

“Is Fer asking me to prepare food for you after waking up from a terrible trauma?” like I said, exhaustion makes one reckless.

Gununu, fine, I guess it can’t be helped,” [2] [8] Fer cautiously sniffed at the bowl of bread and finally picked up an Anpan, the red bean paste bun, and chewed thoughtfully. “Mumumu, I guess this is not bad.”

[4] “Oh? Looks like you’re fine with sweet things?”

He picked up another bun, a jam filled one this time, and threw it into his mouth, “Hm? This one is good too.” He ate a cream bun and exclaimed, “The inside is like thickened milk, delicious!”

[4] “Eh?” If Fer likes sweet things, isn’t this more like rewarding him??!

“More!” [5]

[4] “Arrgh… you’ve already had 15, I haven’t even eaten 1 yet!” I avoided his wet prodding nose and gasped, “You could get diabetes or tooth decay from eating too many sweets and won’t be able to eat meat anymore!” [5]

“Humph, something like this making me sick? Fufun! What a joke. Rather than that, give me more.”

Unable to take the annoying prodding, I bought two sets of red bean, jam and cream buns, plus an additional red bean bun for myself. While checking the items out, I asked, “What do you mean you can’t get sick? Every living creature could get sick you know?”

“I have the blessings of the Wind Goddess Ninril. Aside from my ability to use Wind Magic, this blessing could negate any kind of abnormal status even things like poisons and diseases.” [8]

[4] “Wait, a goddess’s blessing? Is a goddess’s blessing that amazing?”

[8] “But of course, that’s why it’s called a goddess’s blessing.”

… what kind of cheat is that!!!??

[8] Fer is already a super powered Legendary Beast, to think that he also has this kind of protection…

[6] “Unfair!”

[6] “Hmm?”

[4] “Unfair! Unfair! Unfair! God or goddess in heaven, I don’t care who’s listening, but somebody up there please send me your protection!!!!”
