I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 126
Chapter 3-41. Reizen’s new equipment.
Before breakfast, I went to see Reizen and asked him about the dream.
But Reizen did not have any dreams yesterday, and he did not know such people.
I guess if you dismiss it as just a dream, that’s all there is to it, but …… it was kind of strange.
Reizen laughed and said, “You think too much, it’s only a dream~”.
Well, maybe it really is. ……
We asked the soldiers of the Kingdom of Garott to prepare the carriage for the journey to Zenki-village.
While they are getting it ready, I should say a farewell to Satella and Valadim.
Neither of them looked particularly sad, and they saw us off with smiles on their faces.
Baltic still didn’t have much time to see us off, but we know that he is working hard for the Kingdom of Garott.
Until Asure comes back, Baltic will have to deal with a mountain of paperwork for a while.
As we said our goodbyes, the carriage was soon ready, so we quickly got in the carriage and proceeded down the main street.
But before leaving the Kingdom of Garott, there was one place we had to stop by.
Dazra’s Armory Store.
According to the plan, Reizen’s armor should have already been completed, so we had to go pick it up.
Reizen has been in a good mood since this morning because it is his new equipment.
He is very much looking forward to seeing how the equipment he ordered will turn out.
“Reizen, have you ordered anything else from the store since then?”
“Of course! But you’ll have to wait and see!”
“Well, I’m looking forward to it.”
I hope it doesn’t cost too much ……
We’re talking about Reizen here ……
Maybe he’ll come equipped with some medieval-looking gear. ……
Let’s believe that’s not going to happen.
Let’s believe it.
The store was reasonably close to the castle, and we were able to reach it in a few minutes.
The town was as busy and crowded as ever, and we were only able to proceed slowly, but even so, traveling by carriage was faster than on foot.
I hope to use horse-drawn carriages as much as possible in the future.
Upon arriving at the armory, Reizen jumped down from the carriage and immediately entered the store.
The bell attached to the door was making a loud noise.
I know you’re looking forward to it, but you need to calm down a little.
As soon as we got into the store and paid, we would be off, so I decided to leave the wagon to Uchikage and Alena and just go inside myself.
When I walked in, there was only Lews sitting at the counter.
There was no sign of Reizen. I wondered if he had already gone into the fitting room.
“Yo, where’s Reizen?”
“He went into the fitting room with my husband. They both looked very happy.”
“I see. How much should I pay? I thought I’d pay for it first.”
Then, Lews takes out an abacus-like object from a drawer and starts to clack it.
She was counting something on her fingers as she clacked it, and from the way she was folding and stretching her fingers, I could guess that Reizen had made a lot of requests.
After counting her fingers thirteen times, Lews stopped moving and ran her pen over a piece of paper that was in her hand.
“Alright. The total is …… four gold coins and two silver coins.”
“That’s …… a lot of money.”
After hearing the price, I opened the wallet that Irza had given me and took out four gold coins and two silver coins.
Lews spread the money out in her hand, checked it twice, nodded her head, and then put the money away.
“I certainly received it. Well, a custom-made product costs that much. This time, there were a lot of requests from Reizen. That’s why it ended up like this when we were collecting materials to satisfy the requests.”
“So, usually it doesn’t cost that much, huh.”
“That’s right. Most of the young adventurers have a complete set, including breastplate, braces, shin guards, and so on. I’ve never seen leather equipment cost this much. But if you bring in your own materials, you can get it for much less price.”
Was it possible to bring your own materials?
I didn’t know that.
No, maybe this kind of thing is common knowledge in the crafters of this world.
I think learning common sense is the hardest thing to do in this world.
I mean, what kind of order did that …… Reizen makes leather equipment to be this expensive?
This is going to be a thickly packed, painfully expensive piece of equipment. ……!
That being said, …… it’s hard to get on with a guy like Reizen.
I thought about looking at something in the meantime, but there’s nothing in particular to look at …….
I’m not sure how much I’m going to be able to do with the magic bag that Irza gave me.
I’m not sure what I need to use it for right now.
I’ll put it in the next time I have some materials to sell.
“Oh, right. Ouren-san, if you ever come back here again, could you please sell the materials from the monsters as much as you can over here?”
“Material from monsters? Why?”
“I’m actually running a little low on materials to make armor. …… I’ve asked the Adventurer’s Guild to collect materials for me, but ……”
“Oh. Is it cheaper to sell directly here than to hire an adventurer?”
It seems that I was right on the mark.
I don’t know the details of how guilds work, so I don’t know how much money they actually spend, but hiring adventurers and making rewards from them would cost more money than buying them normally.
If we were to sell only materials, we could change the price depending on the quality of the materials.
And the price would also have to be changed according to the rank of the monsters.
In the long run, it would probably be more helpful to have the adventurers’ guild sell them to the client than to make a request to the guild.
And, well, I’ve laid out what any amateur might think, …… but I don’t know what the truth is.
But from Lews’s reaction, it must be true that asking the Adventurers Guild for help would cost a lot of money.
It says so on her face.
“Hey, I’ll give you a discount if you bring me the materials! Y’see!”
“No problem, but we won’t be back here for a while. ……”
“Eeeh—? Oh right, F rank adventurer right?”
“How did you know that?”
We had told them that we were adventurers, but I’m sure we hadn’t told them that we were F-ranked.
“Fufufufu… …… this is the housewife’s information network.”
“…… damn scary.”
“I lied. Alena told me before.”
If she heard it without me knowing about it, it must have been …… yesterday.
I guess she learned it in the fitting room.
It’s not that I don’t mind them knowing, but I’m a little surprised that they know something I haven’t told them.
“Aniki! Thank you for waiting!”
Reizen comes out of the fitting room.
Next to him, Dazra is looking at the equipment that Reizen is wearing with a big smile and a satisfied look on his face.
Reizen is clad in a black cloak, but now he is unfurling it to show me the equipment he is wearing.
A black strap was wrapped around his arms.
It seemed to be a very long belt, and the belt that could not be wrapped around him was hanging with metal fittings.
The belt was embroidered with gold, and the belt seemed to be wrapped around his legs as well, which were also decorated with gold.
A small plate is stretched over his chest to protect his heart and is secured with a belt from three points to prevent it from moving.
It was black in color, as per Reizen’s order, and the leather equipment on the torso was also black.
There are also shoulder pads, but these seem to be for holding the cloak in place, not for protection.
Although it was difficult to see because it was hidden by the cloak, a knife as large as a small dagger was carried on his waist. That must be the knife for dismantling that Reizen had ordered.
“Wow. ……, you look like a bandit.”
“Isn’t he more like a bandit than any other bandit around?”
“It might be so. No, but …… it’s amazing. It’s just plain cool.”
“Wohoo! You heard that, pops! Ouren-aniki has given his approval!”
“I’m not the cool one! You’re the one who’s awesome! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!”
Dazra then slaps Reizen on the back.
The strike must have been quite forceful, but Reizen did not move an inch.
As one would expect from a man with a four-digit defense.
Both me and Reizen thanked them and told them that we would not be back for some period of time.
Dazra was obviously disheartened, but Reizen consoled him, saying that it didn’t mean we wouldn’t be coming back.
After we finished our discussion, we returned to the carriage.
When we returned, Alena was the first to praise Reizen’s new equipment.
He was proud of his new equipment and was beaming with pride.
I’m the only one who hasn’t got the right equipment.
Next time, it was my turn.
So we headed for the Zenki-village in search of my new equipment.
