I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 87
Fui : It’s quite hard when depression kicked in.
Chapter 3-2. Humanoid Figure
After the discussion, we bid farewell to Tenda and we were taken to the room where we are going to stay for today.
The room is large enough to make me wonder if it’s really just for a single person and it’s decorated with a lot of elaborate decoration.
The bright white walls reflect the sun’s rays and make the eyes dazzle but the floor uses a slightly darker color in contrast to the walls to mitigate the reflections.
One room was rented to Satella and one room to Uchikage, and I was taken to Satella’s room.
Of course it is compulsory.
They don’t think of me as one of the guests.
Satella, who was allowed to move around the castle freely by Asure, began to walk around the castle while holding me, I’m not really sure she can hold me that long.
I also wanted to explore the castle.
It’s the first time I’ve seen this castle and entered it for the first time.
It’s strange that anyone don’t minds me.
I’ll go along with Satella for the time being.
First, Satella headed to the top of the castle.
While we were heading there I thought Uchikage was with us, but it was just the two of us before I realized it.
I was wondering for a little while if Satella has the ability to lurk, even Uchikage lost sight of her.
After a while, we arrived at our destination.
The highest part of the castle is not heavily decorated and feels more like a lookout.
But it was clean and there was only one painting in the room.
The figure in the painting was drawn with a luxurious frame, but it seems only this painting stands out because the surroundings are simpler than others.
There was a door in the room to go outside, and when we opened it, the floor was protruding a little and we were able to get out.
A handrail surrounds the veranda to prevent anyone from falling.
Satella grabbed the stone railing and looked out through the gaps between the railing.
I was caught by it and got on the railing and looked at the castle from the highest place.
A part of the castle is enshrined in the foreground, and I can see a large garden and a stone statue.
And beyond the wall that surrounds the castle, it seems that large pavilions and houses are lined up.
There are other buildings that are different from churches and houses.
If I look further back, there are countless small houses scattered around and people are crowded together.
And all the houses seem to be protected by the walls including the big gate.
The plain spreads out of the wall, but the forest follows after it.
The river seemed to be nearby and I could see some waterway coming out of this castle.
There are several other villages nearby and vast fields.
There is always a castle gate near the place where the villagers live, and it seems that they can immediately go in and out.
These castle constructions really mind how their citizens go in and out.
The person who built this castle must have been a good person who knew the importance of the people.
Satella is excited to see the city from such a high place for the first time.
I think I’ve seen the city from a high place in my previous life, but this city is more like the Medieval era of another world.
I’m not really sure because my memory is a bit blurry.
My true intention is to see it closer, not from a high place.
However, because I’m with Satella, it seems difficult to act alone in the castle.
Thanks to my present condition, I can do anything freely for now..
I wish I were human.
Should I try to transform into a humanoid figure tonight?
“Snake-san! Let’s go to the next place!”
Then I’m grabbed and hugged again.
I want her to be a little more gentle but … well, she is still a child.
When we were getting off the top floor, we passed with Uchikage
However, Satella ignored him with all her might and went somewhere.
Uchikage was taken aback and chased us, but … he seems to have lost sight of us again.
This child really can escape from Uchikage’s sight.
What is this child really …?
Does she really have that kind of skill?
I was kidnap- taken care of by Satella all day long.
We went over there- then over there, suddenly changed course and swayed me around like a rucksack everywhere.
Isn’t she really exploring every corner of this castle?
We went to the basement area and even to the Asure’s room.
I was wondering if he would get angry at us, but Asure seemed to have already told the castle people about Satella and me, so we were able to explore without any hindrance.
That’s why I’m so tired. No kidding.
Childrens’ stamina is really over the sky … No matter how much she ran around, no matter if she felt tired or not, she wasn’t out of breath.
“Uhm- are you okay?”
Uchikage worriedly called out to me, who was lying down on the desk.
It seems that Uchikage also wanted to stop Satella’s day out, but for some reason he lost sight of her and couldn’t chase after her.
It’s kind of weird to hear that, but normally Uchikage shouldn’t lag behind children.
There is no doubt that she has some kind of abilities.
For the time being, I lightly shake my tail to Uchikage.
I don’t know how to answer him, but I just did it because it seemed better to have some reaction.
There is no deep meaning.
Now I and Uchikage are having dinner.
Normally, I was able to get a lot of experience points by eating, but since I became 【Wave Snake】, the amount of experience points acquired has decreased, so my level is still 13.
There may be other reasons … The upper limit of every level is quite a huge gap.
If the upper limit is raised this much, it may be unavoidable that the required experience value will also increase.
The food looks delicious, but it tastes very light.
I want to be a humanoid figure soon … By the way, I can do it now.
Oh right! I can transform now!
I almost missed my chance … I was so tired that I was taken away and forgot …
Right now it’s just Uchikage around, it should be fine, right?
Huh? I wonder why I’m suddenly motivated?
Hey, voice of heaven.
How can I transform into a humanoid figure?
Is there anything I should be careful about?
『You can use 100 MP to transform into a humanoid figure. When you try to transform back, it will use another 100 MP. If your MP is not enough, you can’t transform no matter what. After you transform into a humanoid figure, the method of acquiring experience points will change, and you can acquire experience points by defeating monsters instead of eating them.』
I need 100 MP?
That’s quite a lot.
That means I can’t use it when I’m in a battle.
When I fight, I’ll fight as it is.
Well, is there any reason to not transform now?
Alright! Let’s Transform!
……Hol’up? By the way, what would I be like …
Let’s see it after it all happens then? Let’s just do that.
I use 100 MP to transform.
My body gets hot like burning, but it doesn’t hurt that much like in the past.
The skeleton is remodeled and new bones are generated.
My body swelled up and became bigger, completely ignoring the law of mass conservation
After a while, the burning sensation on my body subsided.
I open my eyes slightly and look at my hands.
I grasp my hands’ sensation several times by opening and closing it repeatedly to check the feeling that is transmitted to my body, but there is no particular discomfort.
Now I try touching my face with my hands or touching other parts of my body.
It wasn’t muscular, but it still had some muscle.
Since I don’t have a womanly breasts, it can be seen that I have a male figure.
I can’t tell if my body was weak or not, but I feel that the power is boiling out of nowhere.
Uchikage is looking at me with his mouth fluttering.
Wasn’t there folklore that the white snake became a human being among Oni’s stories?
I thought that was normal for them.
For the time being, I leave Uchikage aside and check myself in the mirror.
There isn’t any problem and it is working perfectly.
The problem is my face.
When I looked at it, my hair was white.
My face is a little thin.
My eyes were sharp and my pupils were yellow with the snake characteristic eyes.
I wonder if I can blend in with the people with this figure?
However, the voice of heaven seems to have made it quite handsome.
I put my hand on my throat and try to speak out.
This voice is the same as when I was talking to Reizen.
It seems that the vocal cords weren’t tampered with.
However, I felt something was wrong.
I can move my limbs, my face is fine, and I have no complaints about my body.
But for some reason I felt that something was missing.
I was thinking about something with my head tilted, but soon I realized it.
I realized that there was a missing thing that should exist to describe male or female.
“No way … asexual …?”
Yes, my body is asexual
There is nothing down there.
A creature that just took the form of a human was standing here now.
“Seriously … that fella forgets something important sometimes…”
“………… Ah, that ……”
“Hmm? Ah, my bad, I forgot.”
Uchikage immediately left his seat.
“Are you Ouren-sama?”
“Yes I am. It’s been a long time huh … Only my eyeballs are still like a snake, but I think this looks surprisingly good?”
“Ooh …! If Tenda or the princess hears it, they’ll be happy.! Or rather, if the princess heard this, she’ll be angry instead…”
“Hahaha! I’ll depend on you again if that time comes, Thanks for taking care of me back then”
“What are you saying! I just did what I had to do! Uhm….. Ouren-sama”
“You need something to wear …”
He’s right, I’m still naked.
I wonder if I have to explain various things from now on.
Well, if I explain it here, it will be easier later.
Maybe until I meet Alena, I’ll keep this form.
Otherwise, it’s going to be a hassle to explain.
Uchikage went out and brought me some clothes.
It took him a while, so I was wondering how much and ended up bringing something fancy.
I will try it on for the time being.
I wear a dark brown leather robe that extends to my knees.
It’s a black shirt with a gray pattern on it, and the trousers are full black colored straight down to my feet.
There’s two belts on my waist.
One is a normal leather belt, the other is fixed only to one waist side and the other side is hanging free.
So the belt is hanging around my thighs.
This would be just for fashion sake.
However, the decoration on the belt is quite flashy.
Looking through the mirror, I look like a cowboy.
I prefer kimono, but we don’t have one now, so we can’t help it.
Let’s go with this.
I wonder how he found this kind of clothes in this castle.
I thought that there were only gorgeous and dazzling clothes in here …
“So, they have something like this huh.”
“You mean that clothes? I asked the maid where the clothes were, but none of the maids had something suitable, so I went to the armory and borrowed it. That’s how I got that. “
“You see. I prefer kimono over this. Could you prepare one for me when we get back to Zenki-village? Can I request a sword too?”
“No one will refuse your request, just ask and consider it done.”
“I’m looking forward to it.”
Now I have a reason to return to Zenki-village.
This outfit is kinda cool, but I feel uncomfortable wearing it.
This robe is really cool so I’d like to have it … but it won’t go well with kimono.
“Okay, then I’m going to explain a little about myself…”
“is that so-“
When I glance at Uchikage, I can see his mouth is quite loose somehow.
It looks very fun, but … I was curious, so I asked.
“Uchikage, you look very happy. What happened?”
“Ah, nothing! It’s just, you look like what I imagined.”
“I see, I’m not that dignified?”
“Hahaha. Isn’t that good?”
“Well, you’re not wrong …”
I feel a little shy, so I scratch my head lightly to hide it.
I suddenly noticed, but I was a little impressed by the fact that I was able to make facial expressions.
Until now, I’ve managed to use emoji and emoticons, but from now on, conversations with people will be easier.
With that in mind, I and Uchikage headed for Athlete.
…… I have a lot of things I want to ask.
