I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 49
It’s been a long time
As a result of continuing to find the suitable moss since then, I finally arrived at the place where moss was growing.
I’m a bit dissapointed because there were no big trees unlike my previous place, but I gave up soon because that kind of tree isn’t always available anywhere.
Besides, my body is bigger than before (Mist Snake).
It would be a little cramped to live under a tree with my current size.
I’ll use [Earth Spirit] to raise the soil and modify it.
It didn’t take that much time to build the house because I can freely shape it like a clay.
Of course, it’s made from soil, but it can’t be easily broken because I changed the moisture and hardened it thanks to [Earth Spirit]
The roof is made of clay and leaves layered on top of it to repel water so it can withstand rain.
The leaves may not make any sense, but I don’t want the water to hit the clay directly.
I don’t want to repair it because that going to be a hassle.
Well, let’s see if it cann withstand it later.
I have a snake’s body and there is no point in making the second floor, so I tried to make it with the image of a Japanese house.
There are leaves on the roof, so it looks like it just attached at the roof and the atmosphere is not that good.
Of course, I also make fences!
It doesn’t make sense though!
The interior is … well, it’s not necessary for snakes.
I hope it can survive the rain and wind.
There is one though, the only innterior inside my house is large stone with moss.
That is enough for me.
This house is like a prize for my hardworking self.
However, because I put too much emphasis on the appearance, the house became bigger than necessary.
Someday I would like to acquire the skill of manipulating trees and make a real wooden building.
Udo Snake might be able to do it.
In the end, I have to evolve quickly and get new skills.
I haven’t been acquiring skills these days, but … well, I’ll do that when I have time.
Evolving is more efficient.
The first thing is to have a base camp!
I might throw it away soon tho!
My current level is 5.
I don’t know how but when I tried to photosynthesis, my level went up.
I don’t know the conditions for raising the level of living things in this world anymore.
What did I eat with photosynthesis … the air?
By the way, the skill [Strong Acidic Poisonus Fang] was sealed.
That thing is horrifying.
I didn’t have anything to target, so I used it toward a random tree, but … it melt the area of my bit mark.
At first it was fine, but the acid eroded from the bite mark and the tree fell over.
But it didn’t stop there, the leaves turned brown first, then all the leaves died in just some second.
This is probably … the poison effect from that skill.
If I used that to a living being, I wouldn’t be able to eat their meat, so I sealed the [Strong Acidic Poisonus Fang].
For the time being.
Next is [Sharp Water Blade]。
This skill is amazing.
As mentioned in the explanation, the rock was really cut off.
I tried hitting them with [Water Spear Volley], but the [Sharp Water Blade] was overwhelmingly stronger.
However, I can only create one blade with this skill, If I were involved in many battle at once, [Reamed Water Spear] seems good but [Water Spear Volley] is more useful on crowded enemies.
To be honest, I thought it would be okay to combine [Water Spear Volley] and [Reamed Water Spear], but I left them just hoping I could still obtain strong skills.
When I evolve into Wave Snake next time, I’ll get some good skills again.
I really wanted to use [Great Heal] and [Area High Heal], but … I didn’t have a target and I couldn’t test my skills right for now.
I’m not sad.
A snake is a lonesome creature, isn’t it? So that’s a given.
Well, after I build a house … I want to go hunting soon.
I didn’t do anything beside eating until now.
I haven’t received any battle experience points …
Is there anything out here?
I was blown away by a Gobokk, caught in cage on carriage, dived into the ground, and came out to a suitable place …
I think I’ve traveled quite far.
I don’t feel like returning to that place anymore.
If I ask someone, maybe I can go home.
How long will it take to reach my first home …
Hmm … my journey is still on a long way …
I have to do something about those two kids.
The case isn’t like when I build a house.
But I want a base.
Alena will be fine for the time being. I know her location …
The problem is Satella.
I don’t know her location, even I don’t know how she looks like.
First, I have to find some information …
Sigh, if I didn’t find any answer myself, it may be better to go looking for her with my present appearance.
But I didn’t even see any town … Should I first look for a place with a village or town and borrow a map from there?
I don’t even know where I am or what kind of place that I want to go.
There are too many things I don’t understand and I can’t handle them.
Alright, let’s first look for a village of human.
I use [Infinite Water Manipulation] to create ablob of water and went iniside it.
And flew toward the sky.
If I look at it from a high place, I should know something around here.
This skill is convenient at such times.
Ah, of course, [Water Shield] is deployed as well.
From the sky, I can clearly see the topography of the surrounding area.
There are big mountains in the distance, and there seems to be a volcano.
There is a river at a distance.
Most of the area I was in was a forest, but there was a road that seemed to be artificially created somewhere.
It seems only that road is well maintained.
When I followed the road with my eyes, there was a village.
I don’t know what kind of village it is because it’s too far away, but I’m sure there are people, so I’ll head for it today.
I can be carried with [Infinite Water Manipulation] as it is, but I want to raise my level, so I decided to slitter properly.
Experience points are needed.
Even at the very beginning, I once searched for something from the sky, but … I couldn’t find anything at that time.
It was just forest all around.
It must be a deep forest where I was before.
It was helpful to find it easily this time.
This will give me a foothold in my search for Satella.
If possible, I would like to interact with the people in the village, but … it wouldn’t be possible!
Yes. I have no idea that wild snakes will get along with people.
I wonder if I would be comfortable there.
For the time being, let’s go near the village and use [Assassination to erase my presence and explore the village.
Alright, I decided what to do, let’s go to that village!
―2 hours later―
I was slittering and hunting for the prey on the way.
I was looking for prey by expanding the [Haze Manipulation] to a radius of 5 meters, I met four enemies in the last two hours.
All of them had some interesting unique skills.
However, it seems it couldn’t beat my [Herculean Jaw].
I used to hunt like this.
To put it bluntly … the prey is weak.
With a [Herculean Jaw] and [Sharp Water Blade], I almost one shot them all.
So I’m trying to improve the skill level and operation performance of [Water Spear Volley] and [Reamed Water Spear].
Of course, after weakened them, I ennded them with [Herculean Jaw].
I can’t eat their bones if I don’t use [Herculean Jaw].
[You have gained experience points. LV is now 21]
Even though I ate four prey, it’s difficult to raise my LV now …
Even though the [Rare Species Benefits] are working, I feel that the experience points I gained is too small.
I’m afraid that I’m too used to fast paced leveling, but … I want to evolve faster after all.
Besides, I don’t think I can get out of the serpent race soon.
What’s next after going through the serpent phase? A lizard?
On the contrary, I feel that it is devolution, but serpent doesn’t have any limbs.
The dragon have four limbs or more- is what I know.
I wonder what I’m going to be after graduating from serpent family, it may be a creature with limbs. I’m looking forward to it.
Alright, it’s about time I arrived at the village.
I try to expand the [Haze Manipulation] toward the village.
The silhouette is projected in my head.
Trees, leaves, shrubs and apparently artificially made fence-like silhouettes were reflected.
Next, the regularly arranged grass is reflected.
Is this a field?
After that, the silhouettes of people and homes were reflected.
Apparently I’m already close to the village.
I approached the village while still grasping the situation around me with the [Haze Manipulation].
