I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 116
Fui : Happy Eid for those who celebrate it.
Chapter 3-31. Tidying Up
When I returned, I found that something was burning.
The village was on fire.
I rushed into the village with Reizen and we were asked to help put out the fire together with the villagers.
While putting out the fire, I asked them how it had happened. They told us that there had been an attack by Acid Dogs, but a certain person had managed to defeat them all.
And yet, he seems to have unleashed his fire-based skills without considering the damage to his surroundings.
What the hell was he thinking?
I’ll deal with him later, but first, we must extinguish the fire or it will turn into a forest fire.
The 【Infinite Water Manipulation】 will create a large amount of water, which will be instantly extinguished by pouring it on the fire that has spread to the trees and the house.
Although the house will be drenched, I hope they will forgive me for this.
I mean, it’s raining!
Why is the tree on fire?
Why is the house on fire?
I called out to Reizen, who was carrying around three water buckets to extinguish the fire.
I wondered how he could carry them so skillfully, but let’s leave it at that,…….
“There are people in the house! Can you rescue them?!”
“I got it!”
I had a few MP left, why should I not push myself here?
So I used t【Haze Manipulation】to check all the houses.
I found the silhouettes of people in two of the houses, so I decided to send Reizen, who has a high defense capability, to rush into the houses.
If it was Reizen, he would be able to quickly enter the house that had just been extinguished.
Of course, he would go in even if the house was on fire.
I sent Reizen with instructions to go inside the house.
In the meantime, I proceed toward the other house, putting out the fire.
After a while, I found an old woman collapsed in a room.
I check her pulse and see that she is still alive, so I heal her by secretly casting 【Great Heal】 on her.
I put her on my back and headed straight outside.
At the same time, Reizen also came out.
He was carrying a man and a woman, who appeared to be a couple, on each shoulder.
Although it was a little rough, it was easier to carry two people like that.
He asked me to bring them to me and give them the 【Great Heal】.
Again, I secretly cast the 【Great Heal】 and healed them.
“I’m out of MP. If I use one more skill, I’ll collapse.”
I really just barely made it …… and I only have 3 MP left.
I shouldn’t spend 300 MP at once on 【Haze Manipulation】.
Maybe I was frustrated at the time because I couldn’t find them, but my actions were a bit shallow …….
I regret my actions. ……
For now, I let the injured person rest in a safe place.
The people who seemed to be the family members of the injured came and thanked us immensely.
Reizen seemed to be extremely happy.
But we are not done extinguishing the fire yet.
I was able to extinguish all the fire on the house with my skills, but the forest is still burning.
And I have no more MP, so we have to do the manual work. ……
Then one of the villagers came over to me.
“Hey, that guy from earlier! Can you use that skill again to put out the fire? We can’t handle it!”
Apparently, this villager must have seen me extinguishing the house earlier.
But I don’t think I’m going to be able to live up to his ……. expectations.
“Sorry, sorry …… I don’t have any more MP ……”
“I’m out of magical power.”
Come to think of it, words like MP and HP are not understood by the inhabitants of this world.
I had totally forgotten about that.
While I was thinking about that, a man started shouting and calling out.
“Hey! Does anyone have a mana potion !? The person who can manipulate the water is out of magic!”
Soon after, a person nearby began to search for something called mana potion.
Mana Potion…… from the name, is it something that restores MP?
After a while, some villagers and someone dressed like an adventurer brought me a small vial.
It looks like a small glass bottle in the shape of a diamond.
It appeared to contain a blue liquid inside.
He handed it to me vigorously.
I feel like he’s relying on me so hard, but …… is it safe to drink this?
I’m a little afraid.
Well, it’s an emergency now.
Let’s drink it quickly, then put out the fire and strangle the person who caused all this.
I pop the lid off the vial and pour the liquid into my mouth in one shot.
Immediately, a foul smell spread through my mouth like garbage.
I thought about what it was and tried to spit it out, but since I drank it all at once, I swallowed it before I could understand what it tasted like.
Damn, it’s so bad.
“What the hell is this?”
“Huh? It’s a mana potion. It can restore magic power.”
The villagers made the obvious statement.
That’ s not what I want to ask.
I was wondering how they could make such a bad tasting substance.
It tastes so bad that I wonder if it is made from raw fish remains.
And on top of that, the smell is horrible.
The adventurer now handed me a mana potion as I was clearly gulping it down.
Do you want me to drink it more?
“No, no, I’m …… just one is fine.”
“What are you talking about? One bottle of mana potion only restores a little. You need to take at least one more bottle.”
I was thinking what the heck is this guy talking about, but when I checked my status, my MP was only up to 53.
Each bottle apparently recovers 50 MP.
I would certainly have to take one more bottle to be able to extinguish the fire properly.
Once I got a taste of it, I had to be prepared for it.
I popped the cork, but I’m afraid to put it in my mouth.
I guess I should just drink it all at once like I did before, but I feel as if the mana potion is saying, “…… I don’t taste good”
I mean, it is.
I mustn’t think about the taste! Just gulp it down!
And thus I drank it again.
I swear to god, I want to puke.
“Alright! Well, then, please!”
With that, the villagers and adventurers ran off.
I still feel sick to my soul …… what that was.
Or rather, that was a torture, right?
I’m not sure what kind of devil you’re asking me to go put out one more round of extinguishing the fire on top of that.
I have memorized that mana potion’s taste.
And I memorized their faces, too!
“A- aniki … are you okay?”
“Blergh … that was awful … you too … when you drink ‘em … be prepared.”
Then I was staggering straight to the fire site.
The fire was quickly extinguished, and once the villagers had calmed down, they began to report on the trees that had burned and the damage they had suffered.
We are not from this village, so we don’t have to do that kind of thing.
But every time I met the villagers, they thanked me.
They said things like, “Thanks to you, we didn’t have any major damage because of you,” “Thank you for helping us,” “Next time you stay at the inn, we’ll give you a discount,” and so on.
I didn’t feel bad, but I think it was a little hard to ignore them.
Reizen seemed to be happy to receive them all.
Now where is the trouble maker in question? Seriously, where is he?
Because of him, I was forced to help put out a fire, and on top of that, I was forced to drink a mana potion.
I’m going to make him drink two bottles of it too.
When I told the people who thanked me earlier that we didn’t have any mana potions, they graciously gave me about 10 bottles.
The preparations are all in order.
Leave it to me, I’ll make sure he drinks it.
“That troublemaker can control a flame of this magnitude, right? Maybe he’s even better than that guy?”
“That guy? You mean Lequam?”
“Ah, so that’s his name.”
Well, I didn’t tell you about that.
However, Reizen is right, I have certainly never seen such a large-scale flame-based skill before.
I’m still new to this world, so I don’t really know how great they are, but I think they are at least greater than Lequem, who claims to be good at fire skills.
His firepower is also sufficient.
I mean, he’s scorching that Acid Dog to a crisp.
If he can burn with that scale then. He’s probably a strong guy.
Well, no matter how great he is, I’d make him drink the mana potion!
I asked the villagers where this troublemaker in question was, and they immediately knew where he was.
Apparently, he was outside the inn where we stayed.
The fact that Uchikage, Alena, and Satella are around is unsettling, but …….
I guess it’s all right, since Uchikage is there.
When I returned to the inn, the guy was indeed there.
Uchikage is in battle mode.
Behind him were Alena and Satella, who were looking at the man curiously.
And that’s the man. …… He is dressed in white armor and has fiery red hair tied back.
I’ve never seen hair color like that before.
The hair color of the inhabitants of this world varies, but it is generally brown or blonde …… Well, is it similar to Western hair types?
I don’t see many people with dark hair.
Most of them have light hair.
But this guy is too damn bright.
How can he reproduce such a beautiful red color …… is he dyeing it?
But is there any way to dye hair in this world?
But that doesn’t change what I have to do.
I approached the man and called him out.
“Yes, what is it?”
Hmmm…a face that’s unnecessarily beautiful.
I want to punch him right now.
“You’re the one who started this fire?”
“I did not start this fire, you goddamn unthankful people! I just slaughtered a bunch of Acid Dogs that attacked this village!”
He began to stand around with his hands outstretched wide, as if to assert his appearance.
Is he going to start some kind of speech now?
Or perhaps this guy is not feeling sorry for himself.
That is troublesome.
It’s a real mess.
” 【 Air Prison 】 “
With a lovely bang, the red-haired man was trapped in a square, transparent prison cell.
But the red-haired man, who had no idea he was in a prison, slammed his entire body against the wall with a bang.
“!? What is this!”
“You don’t seem to have any remorse, so just keep it that way for a while.”
“What the hell? Hngh! I-, I can’t get out!”
He seems to be looking for a way out by touching the wall flatly, but Reizen is not that naive.
He only made a tiny little air vent and sealed up the rest.
There is no way he will suffocate with this.
As long as he doesn’t use fire.
“Why !? I helped this village !? Why should I be treated like this!”
“What an idiot. Do you even see the damage you’ve done?”
“Damage? It’s nothing more than a house and a forest that’s been a little burned!”
“… Aniki. Can I hit him as hard as I can?”
Even the happy go lucky guy like Reizen pissed off.
