I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 123
Fui : I’m back! And my back killing me.
Chapter 3-38. Armory Store
Surrounded by a bunch of ruffians, somehow we got into a fight, but managed to fight it off.
I never expected Alena to have that kind of ability.
The big man who was dragged out from under the floor seems to be unharmed for the time being.
The four people that Reizen took out were sent to a medical center.
This guy, he’s over done it. ……
But he was bare-handed.
“We had to do that much or we would get hurt” is what Reizen said to the guards.
I wonder if this is the way I feel when I’m in the Police force.
And what did I do in my previous life?
The guards said, “I see,” and took the four ruffians away.
Well, there was a little commotion, but since we were uninjured, we were happy.
I’ll skip over the fact that Roz was very angry with us afterwards.
“Alena! What kind of skill was that?”
“Hehe~ It’s a skill that can make things heavier!”
“Oh, wow! So you mean gravity!”
“Yea, gravity is …”
Reizen froze as he tried to explain.
He looked at me slowly, dripping with sweat.
I see, you don’t have a clue, do you?
This is what happens when you do things you’re not used to ……
Well, I’ll at least give him a helping hand.
“Gravity is the force that attracts objects on a planet to the center of the planet …… well, strictly speaking, due to the force of gravity and the revolution of this planet. …… Yeah. That’s a tough one for Alena to figure out.
“… That’s what I want to say!”
“I don’t understand”
Reizen, it’s not like you know what you’re talking about.
That’s what it says on his face.
Or should I say, written on his forehead instead.
It is somewhat difficult to explain gravity to children.
In fact, they have some idea of what it is, but when they are asked to explain it, it is difficult for them to answer.
There are answers, but they do not understand.
Perhaps that would be more accurate to say.
But Alena has the skill to use gravity.
I want her to understand it, even if only vaguely.
Come to think of it, Alena knew how to use the skill even before she used it.
Does that mean she can get an idea of what the skill is like, like we do?
Well, I have heard about Uchikage’s status, so it is not surprising if Alena can see her status.
Maybe we should go to an isolated area later to check on skills.
We should have a better idea of who has access to which skills.
So, we’re in the process of leaving the Adventurers’ Guild and walking around town.
Where we are headed now is the …… armory shop.
Me and Uchikage don’t need weapons, but Alena and Reizen do.
Alena’s skill is that she can use it to stop the enemy in their tracks.
Of course, it may be possible to defeat the enemy as it is, but if we don’t have weapons, we can’t deal with them in case of an emergency.
She also wanted to buy armor.
Needless to say, it was for protection.
And I also wanted to buy protective gear.
Of course, it was for protection.
Reizen also agreed with me big time.
He said that he also wanted to wear the protective gear as well.
I don’t think it’s necessary, but as I said before, Reizen wanted to start from the looks of it, so I had no choice but to buy it for him.
As for me, I’m going to have to wait until the Zenki-village.
I’m more of a kimono-…… kind-of guy.
My equipment may be light, as long as I keep only my legs and hands, I should be fine.
I have defensive and offensive skills to my favor.
This is where I want to exercise control over my skills.
Of course, I would like to have equipment on my torso if I could, but …… it would be lame equipment if I wanted that much, so I’ll think about it after I see it.
Look at the Uchikage.
He is wearing purple armor.
It’s not tacky, in fact, it’s cool.
But what happens when you add a kimono over it?
It’s tacky. Yes, it is. What is acceptable is only up to Jinbaori. (Samurai like vest with optional robe)
Well, I’ll think about myself later.
I didn’t have time to buy her clothes when I came back to the Kingdom of Salettana or the Kingdom of Garott, so I’ll buy her whatever she wants this time.
I would have liked to invite Satella to join us, but it seems that the reconstruction work has already started……, and she couldn’t go with us because of her political duties.
I think it’s still too early work for Satella, but they want her to see it now so that when she is able to understand it, she will be able to show her capabilities.
I’m not sure what Valadim has in mind, but I’m sure he’ll do well.
Satella was also very motivated.
Those two would be able to safely reconstruct their homeland.
So, Alena, who would become an A-rank adventurer after the reconstruction, would come back and protect her homeland. ……
Yeah, that sounds good. I have high expectations for the future.
“Ouren-sama. Here it is.”
It seems that we have arrived at an armory store.
From the outside, a sign hanging from a shield crossed with a sword, one can tell at a glance that this is an armory shop.
The front part of the building is made of wood, but as you go deeper into the building, the structure seems to be made of bricks and stones in profusion.
Perhaps there is a workshop in the back.
As evidence of this, the sound of hammering can be heard.
When I opened the door, the bell rang to let them know that a customer had arrived.
In response, a slender woman who had been dozing on her chin on the counter woke up and straightened her posture.
“Welcome. Hey, Dear! You have customers!”
The woman greeted us and then called her husband loudly toward the workshop.
Then the sound of hammering iron stopped. In return, we hear a clattering sound from the back of the room.
“My husband will be here in a little while”
“I understand. By the way, it’s been a long time.”
“Huh? Oh, ……! Oh, Uchiakage-chan! It’s been so long. How have you been?”
“Yes, well, I’ve been in a bit of a mess, so I didn’t get a chance to show up until recently. How is your husband?”
“If he wasn’t well, he wouldn’t be striking iron~”
“Ah, I suppose that’s true.”
It seems that Uchikage is acquainted with this person.
We were out of the conversation for a while, but Uchikage noticed it and finally got down to business.
“Today I need you to find this girl and …… this man some equipment.”
“This girl too? She’s cute, isn’t she? What’s your name?”
“That’s a lovely name. Mine is… ──”
As the woman was about to say her name, the door behind her was opened vigorously.
Out of it emerged a moderately stout man, not quite muscular ……, but moderately muscular.
He was naked on the top half of his body and was wearing a pair of sloppy trousers like a craftsman wears, and he walked in with a towel hanging from his shoulder, wiping the sweat off his face.
His voice is very loud.
I wonder if he has gone deaf from all the iron hitting.
Even so, he looked young …….
The man came out in front of us with a strong footstep.
“You’re my first customers! I knew you’d see things differently if you came to my place!”
We only came here because Uchikage told us to, but …… it looks like he’s in kind of a good mood, so we’ll keep quiet about it.
“Uh, yeah. Thanks a lot for that time.”
“Let’s hear your names! The name’s Dazra!”
“Oh, that’s very thoughtful of you. I’m Ouren.”
When everyone but Uchikage had finished introducing themselves, Dazra nodded his head and looked satisfied.
I have a feeling that wherever I go, there are many craftsmen who are not very well spoken.
Or perhaps it would be better to say that they are rather egotistical.
That’s not a bad thing, though.
I’m sorry to say that I’ve lost track of what I was thinking when Uchikage took me to the main topic.
Well, it doesn’t matter because there is no hurry, but the rock head next to …… is getting fidgety and queasy.
I’d like you to show it to him as soon as possible.
“Dear. Be quiet for a minute. Today we’re talking about Alena and …… Reizen, right? They’re here to see if they can find some weapons and armor for these two.”
“Oh, that’s the spirit, Lews! I didn’t know you’d already been through that much!”
“I’m not a meathead like you.”
Apparently, this woman is called Lews.
She was very excited and started to work on Alena’s body.
She was probably taking measurements, but Alena looked very ticklish.
Dazra, while looking at her, called out to us.
“What do you guys use for weapons?”
“Mine is fist!”
“As for me, I’m a water user. So I don’t need a weapon. Uchikage also has a weapon. …… Today we are going to choose the equipment for Reizen and Alena. By the way, Alena is good at magic. But I want her to have a weapon as well. I want to make sure they have the best possible equipment.”
“Oh! That’s good spirit!”
“… Fist … huh …”
“I- is something wrong with that?”
“Oh,no no no. It’s not that I don’t have a problem with it, but I’ve never made a weapon to mount on someone’s …… fist. In the first place, there is no one who wants to be an adventurer who fights with only one fist. I think you’re the first.”
Come to think of it, most of the reasons for the laughing at the adventurer’ s guild were directed at Reizen who said he would fight with his fists.
Knowing how strong he was, it didn’t make me feel bad, but he proved his strength by beating up an adventurer.
Anyway, that’s as far as it went.
The question is whether a weapon that fits the fist is …….
Indeed, in terms of Reizen’s fighting style, I think that attaching something to his fist would be a hindrance.
He moves around, spinning and rolling forward with his hands as his axis.
As I was thinking about what to do, Reizen interrupted me.
“Um, …… I don’t need a weapon. A small knife for dismantling is enough.
” Hah ……? How are you going to fight monsters with that?
“No, I use my …… fists.”
Well, I expected that even if we told them, they wouldn’t believe us.
But I wonder if there are that many adventurers who rely on weapons.
Well, maybe that’s why they are so prosperous.
“Instead of weapons, I want a cool suit of armor instead!”
“Well, fists are for super close-range combat. I understand. I don’t know how good your fists are, but I’m going to take your word for it. But it’s better to be able to move easily, right?”
“I guess so. If it’s too heavy, I’m afraid I’ll use the wrong amount of force. …… How about some cool, lightweight armor?”
“Okay, so please endure this for a bit-…..?”
“!? What are you doing?”
At that moment, Dazra’s eyes became more intense.
His gaze seemed to be examining Reizen.
The pressure was so tremendous that even me, who was not being looked at directly, was a little intimidated.
It was a very hard pressure for Reizen, who was directly receiving it.
Unable to resist, Reizen took a step backward.
Dazra folded his arms, leaned his face close to Reizen’s, arched his back, and opened his mouth.
Reizen shrank back.
“Looks or performance! Which one do you choose!”
With his arms still attached to his waist to protect himself in a moment of crisis, Reizen immediately responded apologetically.
It looks like.
This guy is still unshaken as ever. On the contrary, I have respect for him.
“All right, I’ll take care of it! I’ll find you some nice leather gear!”
“Not Iron !?”
“Magic armor made from magic ore would be lightweight, but I don’t have that kind of expensive stuff! So earn money and bring me the materials! Until then, use leather armor!”
“What color do you want?”
“Do you want a cape attached?”
“Can you do it?”
“I’ll take care of it!”
“Then please do! And can you add some cool decorations or something!”
“Pfft…… who do you think I am! Who do you think I am? That’s a small matter.”
“As expected from the Pops!”
After that, Reizen and the oldman Dazra were discussing what kind of equipment to make.
Though I have a feeling that it would be quite ridiculous equipment, …… I think it will be okay.
I quietly left the place and went to meet up with Uchikage.
It seems that Uchikage had decided on Alena’s equipment and had already paid for it.
Alena is now trying it on.
It seems that the decision was already made when those two were shouting at each other.
That was fast.
From the way things are going, it looks like Reizen is going to be a custom order.
Well, Dazra is in the mood, so let’s have him do it.
“What did you decide on for Alena’s weapon?”
“Her weapon of choice is a dagger. But I’m thinking of giving her a small dagger when we get home.”
“Western armor and a Eastern style weapon. …… Eastern and Western. Yes, that’s not bad. Not bad.”
“What is that ……?”
“Don’t worry about it.”
Uchikage furrowed his brow as if he didn’t get it, but it was too much trouble to explain.
But a dagger, huh?
Maybe that’s still about right for Alena’s size.
A smaller weapon until she gets used to it.
Her body will grow soon, and even then it would be a good idea to make her a better weapon.
As I was thinking about this, Alena came out of the fitting room.
