Chapter 28: Smoldering fire after the storm

Translator: Tseirp

The storm approached as the day turned to evening .

Strong winds blew outside as the horizontal rain kept a steady tempo like waves in the sea, leaving transient traces in the puddles .

“There’s no way there would be customers now so let’s close the shop . ”

I closed the shop door and locked it from the inside .

Even though the door was only opened for a brief moment, the floor was already wet .

“Here . ”

“Oh, thanks . ”

I accepted the dust cloth from Lit and wiped the floor .

During that time, Lit checked the account book for the measly amount of medicine sold today .

Both of us ended our tasks in no time .

“We’ll take tomorrow off . I doubt anybody would come by . ”

“It’s a storm, after all, I don’t believe anybody would be walking about outside at a time like this . ”

“Yeah . ”

The winds intensified and the house creaked under the wind .

But a house built by the premier carpenter downtown, Gonz, would not yield even in a storm .

We leisurely welcomed the coming storm .

『Don don!』 Suddenly, there was a loud knock on the door .

“Why on a day like this?”

“Red-kun! It’s me! Newman!”

“Doctor Newman!?”

I opened the door and there stood Newman in a cloak . And also,

“Al!?”

Newman was carrying on his back a limp Al with blood flowing from his head . Al was soaking wet and he wasn’t even wearing shoes . His feet were dirty with mud and were pale due to the cold .

“Lit! Blanket and towels!”

“All right!”

Lit had already taken action when I called out to her .

Such a reliable worker .

We laid Al on a blanket placed on the store floor .

Lit had already prepared heated water using Spirit Magic .

I wrapped Al’s cold body due to the rain and loss of blood with a blanket to warm him up .

During that time, Newman got an antidote and hemostatic medicine from the medicine shelf and administered first aid .

“It’s deeper than expected … ”

Muttered Newman .

The gash on the side of Al’s head was bleeding profusely .

“That’s bad . ”

I looked from the side and found that the wound was extremely deep .

Regular treatment would not make it in time .

“Please wait a moment . ”

I ran to the storage and decisively grabbed five Cure Potions .

They were magic potions with the Cure spell contained within them . Even if it was a wound that could not be treated in time with regular means, it could be cured by using magic .

(They might be luxury items for ordinary people but these are copies after all . )

They were Cure Potions duplicated using the Multiplying Potion . They weren’t something I bought so I used it freely .

☆☆

After investing five Cure Potions one after the other, Al’s condition stabilized .

“We made it, that’s great . ”

I felt relieved .

Even if I possessed the Cure Potions, it would not be able to revive a dead person .

“That was shocking, I didn’t think you would actually use Cure Potions … However, this is hard to say but I don’t think Al-kun’s family can afford to pay the expenses for five Cure Potions …”

“I know . But, this child is a friend . ”

“Friend huh . ”

“So, please keep the fact that I used Cure Potions here a secret . Inform others that we treated him normally . ”

“Understood . Red-kun, you’re a good guy . ”

Newman said that with a smile .

“Leaving that aside, what happened?”

“I don’t know . I was just returning from a call from an idiot who fell down when he was fixing a leak in his roof in this weather when I found this child on the ground . It was obvious that he was injured but Red-kun’s Apothecary was nearer than my clinic so I came barging over even though I felt bad . Sorry for bothering you . ”

“No, I should be thanking you for helping my friend . If Doctor didn’t pass by, Al probably would have died . ”

Al’s body temperature had returned to normal and he had a restful expression .

“There were countless small fragments of rocks stuck inside his wound . I believe he was probably hit in the head by a rock or something similar that was blown by the wind . ”

“I see, but why was he out walking today out of all days and was even headed downtown . Furthermore, he doesn’t have a rain-repellant outer cloak on and is in just his house wear . He isn’t even wearing shoes . ”

“I have no idea . ”

” … There’s no other choice other than to wake him . ”

It wasn’t recommended to wake Al given that he had lost so much stamina but I had a feeling that something serious had happened .

I lightly shook Al’s shoulder and called his name .

“Hn …”

After rocking him back and forth a few times, Al slowly woke up .

“Are you all right?”

“Red-san …”

Al’s eyes swam with relief but the next moment .

“Ah, ahhhhh!”

“What’s wrong!?”

Al’s eyes were wide open with fear and he screamed while gripping my arm .

“It’s okay, I am here . Calm down . ”

“He-help!”

“It’s all right now, this is my shop . Nobody will harm you here . ”

“No!”

Al shouted .

“Home, Ademi came, mom and dad, attacked, holding an axe!”

That memory caused the recently recovered Al to have difficulty breathing due to the fear . Newman quickly tried to calm him .

Ademi, that kid they fought with previously?

And an axe?

I have to hurry .

“Here . ”

I heard Lit’s voice from behind when I stood up .

Turning back, I saw an outer cloak and a bag with two Extra Cure Potions already prepared for me .

“The outer cloak is mine . It is a Shield Cloak with environmental tolerance . ”

“Thank you . ”

I quickly wore the cloak, wore my shoes and ran to Al’s home in the storm .

☆☆

I’ll start with the conclusion .

Al’s parents were fine . But they were injured .

By the time I reached Al’s home at South March, the entrance to his house was wide open and the rain was being blown into the house .

I passed through the puddles formed at the entrance . The house had a simple structure with just a kitchen and bedroom so I could survey the entire house with a glance .

Al’s parents had collapsed in the bedroom . They were bleeding but the wounds were not slash wounds but more like blunt force trauma .

It seemed like Ademi used the blunt end of the axe instead of the axe blade .

Both of them were bleeding profusely but the wounds were not deep . To the extent that the Extra Cure Potions Lit prepared were not required .

They would be fine once their wounds were washed, their bleeding staunched, given analgesic to ingest and had the broken bones fixed in place .

Newman also arrived a step behind and confirmed that there was no immediate threat to their lives .

We avoided the worst outcome .

However, this incident still had a major root of evil missing .

Let’s move time forward a little .

Ademi was actually the son of the Guard Captain living in the Congress Street .

After the incident, Ademi went missing . However, beginning from the Half-elves, the Half-humans in South Marsh protested that Ademi was being sheltered by the guards .

But, the guards did not give a response .

There was no telling when the smoldering embers would ignite .

Even though the storm had passed through Zoltan, anxiety could be seen on the resident’s faces .
