Tondemo Skill – 428 – The 3rd Tenant Shop

Chapter 428: The 3rd Tenant Shop

Translated by Zzonkedd

Edited by Gumihou

 

“Right, let’s have a look and see if we have a drugstore available first,” I want to at least be able to mentally prepare myself if something bad were to happen…

I tapped my finger on the (+1) and a drop-down appeared.

Unique Skill [Net Super] has been unlocked. Please choose from the following:

Nos Burger [9]

Yamada Cleaning [9]

Matsumura Kiyomi [9]

Satou’s Fresh Fish

“It here—!!!”

A high-pitched voice rang through my head. It’s… “Kishar-sama?”

“Ufufu, please accept my apologies~~”

Can you please stop trying to sound cute?

Well, I guess I can understand her excitement. Although, personally, I’d prefer Yamada Cleaning or Satou’s Fresh Fish since it’s troublesome to keep washing clothes. Especially when I’m on the road.

As for the fish shop, well, it’s kind of hard to get hold of fish unless we’re by the sea or a river. Also, thanks to that stupid parasite, I can’t even enjoy sashimi…

Hahh… however, if I pick the shops I want, well…

A sudden chill went down my back.

“Naturally, as a goodhearted and considerate person, you will pick the drugstore, right? I believe in you~”

… I could totally hear the unspoken ‘choose the drugstore, or else’ under that light tone.

In fact, I believe the pressure I am feeling now is not my imagination.

“N-naturally, naturally I’ll choose the drugstore, hahaha…”

I touched the characters for Matsumura Kiyomi as though coerced by a demon.

[Do you want to sign with Matsumura Kiyomi? YES / NO]

Do I even have a choice?

I tapped YES.

[Contract with Matsumura Kiyomi has been established. The next Tenant shop will be unlocked at level 160. We look forward to seeing you again]

“Ufufufufufu, finally. My long-awaited drugstore is here! I shall be able to get my hands on this, and this, and that one too!”

… I think Kishar-sama has finally lost it.

“How rude, I have not ‘lost it’ as you have so crudely put it. I am merely a little excited. I now have access to all sorts of beauty products. [8] I have studied the products in your home country of Japan and, oh my, I want this one and this one too~ I have been looking forward to this~ I shall not place my request today since I wish to study them slowly, but I shall await patiently for my precious darlings tomorrow~”

“… yes?”

I really do not have the courage to say no to Kishar-sama when she’s in this kind of mood. [6] I have long since learned not to get between a woman and her beauty products…

“Hey! Kishar is unfair! I want to place my requests too!”

Ninril-sama! I am so relieved to hear your voice! Please take Kishar-sama’s attention away from me…

“Oh my~ have you fallen in love with my voice? Fufun, this lady is willing to speak to you as much as you wish~”

“This and that are completely different things. Anyway, since you’re here, I shall take your request.”

I need to get the offerings done sooner or later anyway, so…

“Sweets! Desserts and Dorayaki! Cake! Give me everything from the Limited Edition Section!”

“Right,” [10] I wrote ‘Dorayaki, Limited Cake’ on my notebook

“Since Kishar will be making her request tomorrow, I’m next. The usual beer!”

“Alright,” I said, “snacks?”

“No need. Oh, but give me a selection of local beers to try. I’ll have my servants make the snacks for me, so I only need the beer.”

[10]

“Right, right.” Next to Agni-sama’s name, I wrote ‘Beer, local beer selection’. “Ruka-sama?”

“Ice-cream, lots. Cake, Limited Edition if any.”

[10] Wow, she must have seen what I have written and given me the most efficient request ever. [5a]

“Whisky!”

“Obviously!”

“Uh huh,” I paused with my pen over my notepad.

[4]

Umu, this time we want something we haven’t tried.”

“Double servings! One each.”

“We’re building a whisky bottle collection.”

“You should see our wall.”

“Gyahahaha!”

“Gahahaha!”

Well, that’s it for today.

“Other Worlder-kun, I shall place my request tomorrow~ Goodbye for now~”

Her voice was sweet, but I can’t help but shiver…

Finally, today is the next day.

I just returned from the dungeon yesterday.

After getting the Gods and Goddesses’ requests, I went to bed.

Breakfast this morning was nice and leisurely, I spent the rest of the day preparing the offerings. I am determined to enjoy my day and took half a day just browsing and shopping on [Net Super], collecting and sorting the items and putting them all away in my [Item Box].

After an early dinner, I psyched myself up and headed toward one of the vacant rooms.

“Ahem, are you there?”

Sounds of thumping footsteps and slaps of slippers answered me.

[11]

“Yes! Yes! We’re here- Ow! Kishar, how dare you push me?!”

“Who pushed you, I’m just standing here.”

Gununu, damn you Kishar!”

“… …” I heard nothing.

“Fufun~ quickly now, Other Worlder-kun, show me the goods~”

“Hey, Kishar. Why don’t you let us have our stuff first?” Came Agni-sama’s decisive voice.

“Yeah! It’s not fair! I want my sweets!”

“What was that, Ninril-chan?”

“Kuuhh…”

“Agni has a point,” Ruka-sama’s voice was low, but somehow penetrating too.

“Yeah, yeah, you can take your time and browse slowly,”

“Right, right, let us take our offerings first.”

Naturally, the two whisky-addict Gods were in favour of this.

“… fine, I shall wait.”

“Yes! Sweets! Me!”

Everything else was pretty much a repeat of the other times I had to give offerings to these greedy Gods and Goddesses. [5b]

Well, with the exception of one…

“Ufufufu, it is now finally my turn. God of Creator-sama has warned us not to bother you, well… I’m sure you wouldn’t mind it just for today~?”

I nodded wordlessly, not daring to interrupt this crazy goddess as I quietly opened up [Net Super].

“Now, show me the drugstore.”

“Sure…”

I think… I should be fine if I just obey her?

Surely?

I’m kind of scared 🙁

 

[Gumihou: Yeah, 5b the entire offering scene.]

 

[1] Structural Change: Combine 2 paragraphs

[2] Structural Change: Combine 3 paragraphs

[3] Structural Change: Combine paragraph & dialogue

[4] Structural Change: Change passive sentence to dialogue

[5] Delete Repetitive or Pointless Information… starting to delete pointless scenes now

[a] Deleted musings over Ruka-sama’s order vs Ninril’s order. Like, we know.

[b] Deleted the entire handing over of offerings. All 550 words, even the ‘special whisky’ scenes’. Gone. Gumi can’t take it anymore.

[6] Additional Information for Aesthetic Purpose

[7] Add Dialogue Tag

[8] Creative Licence Taken – Reworked Kishar-sama’s high-end lady’s talk. It was… a little odd…

[9] The tenant shop options

Nos Burger – is probably Mos Burger, a burger chain in Japan

Yamada Cleaners – probably a dry cleaning place. クリーニング is literally ‘Cleaning’ and most likely a contracted word from ‘Dry Cleaning’

Matsumura Kiyomi – is probably Matsumura Kiyoshi – a popular drugstore chain in Japan

Satou’s Fresh Fish – probably some random fishmonger. Gumi would probably pick this one.

[10] Added some note writing activity for variety.

[11] Excited Gods & Goddess dialogues are too chaotic. Cleaned it up

    Wowz, that’s a really bad spot for Mukoda, being in between a beauty crazy goddess and her desired products. They really need to find a way to get those goods they want without having Mukoda doing all the shopping for them. I wonder who manages the skill system.
    Thanks for the chapter! Awesome translation! May God bless you!

      Luckily, he’s a veteran with this kind of crazy since his sister was also one such person…
