Chapter 11

"Well, you guys, trial and error… think for yourself and try things out . I'm going to work a little . "

Hardship nourishes their future, so I'm not too worried .

They groan as I wave my hands and leave that place .

Well, in either case, I'll create a barrier so that there is no chance they can harm the surrounding area and I'll put up a barrier of concealment so the village can't see it . They'll be fine if I leave for a bit .

I head to the barn and pull out a wagon .

In general, the wagon is the size of a tatami mat . The wheels are not typical wood but wound dozens of times with sea dragon leather until it resembles a car tire .

The cart body is also low, and it's also not a bench type, but a single seater type . Of course, it is homemade .

By lowering the body, it is more stable than a general wagon, with fewer vibrations thanks to the leather . It also helps a little with turning . Well, I pride it as my masterpiece .

Even if it's loaded with five tons, you can pull it easily over 200 kilometers across a flat area . Yes, I'm gratefully I was born in a good place with these useful abilities .

I put it in front of the place where we piled up firewood, and I loaded the dry firewood in good condition on to the wagon .

While someone who can create fire with magic is standard in the countryside (mainly for house duties), no one would be able to sustain that fire (Sepuru is an exception) . So naturally, firewood becomes the fuel .

Though, it's not like many of those in the rural area would go out and cut down trees to fetch firewood . My village's primary industry is wheat and dried fish, and that is taxing . Naturally, not all of the villagers make wheat and dried fish . There are the bakery and the general store . Those of us who live in the mountains aren't in a place where we can make wheat and dried fish; however, the bakery and general store are gold . Because of them, those who live in the mountains often exchange firewood and charcoal for meat, vegetables, and even bread .

Of course, this doesn't mean it's easy to live in the mountains . There are clothing, agricultural tools, and pots that become difficult to acquire with firewood during bad weather . If that happens, I still go to the mountain and cut down trees . I try to plan it out so I'm cutting them down in a safe a place as possible (because there are monsters and beasts) .

That's why these simple daily jobs are important . Well, different places do different things . You can make cheese with goat's milk, grow medicinal herbs, or make bamboo baskets you can carry on your back, although I can do all of them .

I'm doing everything I can . I make whatever I want . That's why our house has a carriage in the first place .

But, not everyone can do such a thing . Everyone has their weaknesses . So the people living in the mountain help each other out . Of course, lazy people end up being pushed into the villages, but everyone struggles with something some times . In those times, the other houses can compensate for it .

Obviously, there are times when I think it's a pain to interact with the neighbors . There are times they become unbearable and I try to tough it out and hope they go back to their work .  I'm human, it's not like I have a heart like Bodhisattva . But if you're going to live here, you need to help each other . Strong people never get stronger . Sometimes, they will be weaker . It's important to form trust in those times . Above all, those with strange powers like me tend to earn jealousy, and a mistake could cause things to go wrong . I don't want to be ostracized .

And for that, I gather more firewood than the others and share our abundant meat supply . During important ceremonial occasional, I force myself to go out . However, I do restrict myself from appearing weak or using flattery . That is why I'm strongly arrogant .

Well, though that may be true, I'll curry favor as much as possible . I want to be seen as reliable . Sometimes, I'm a bit foolish .

Country living is tough, but I feel that I live a dozen times as much as I did in my previous life where I had no connection with people .

When thinking about such things, the firewood was piled up to the point it was overflowing from the carriage .

"— Mah, one more . "

I'll happily share these . I have no complaints . Yup .
