Right, that was a nice two week break. Now, without further ado, allow me to present Volume 13: A Challenge to this Lich. As usual, I’ll be aiming for a release every Friday, so look forward to it!
At a modest magic item shop tucked away in the back alleys of Axel, the usual commotion could be heard.
“Shopkeeper with the rare skill of exclusively stocking up on trash, why don’t you go ahead and explain to Moi, why exactly is this garbage sitting in front of us?”
“Calling my skills rare… I’ll still buy this item even if you compliment me, Vanir-san.”
“Moi was not complimenting you, you useless shopkeep! Just tell me the good points of this product!”
After being startled by Vanir’s outburst, Wiz offered up a stuffed doll.
“The products I bought this time are stuffed animals. Of course, it’s not simply a cute looking toy. Behold! It’s a wondrous item that will automatically follow its owner once they are registered! By giving them to children, we’ll never have to worry about children getting lost ever again!”
“I see. Tell me, what exactly are its downsides?”
“Roger! It’ll always follow its owner even if they aren’t lost, so I suppose it might cause the children to cry when they wake up in the middle of the night to visit the toilet.”
Hearing that, Vanir silently crossed out the purchase papers.
“Vanir-san! Do you really wish to abandon the lost children of the world!?”
“Do you really want to hear the cries of children so badly?”
Such is the everyday sight that greeted us as we opened the door to the magic item shop.
After scolding Wiz, Vanir noticed our entrance and welcomed us with a wide smile.
A small flower appeared in front of Wiz.
The one who offered it to her was Sylphina.
She’s the noble girl that the town’s adventurers, along with various other people in this town, banded together to aid a couple of days ago.
“Onee-san, thank you very much for your help the other day.”
Wiz crouched down to be face-to-face with the shyly smiling girl and gave her a gentle smile.
“This is Wiz’s Magical Item Shop. It’s stocked full of various useful items. If you ever feel unwell again, or run into some other problem… Please feel free to visit anytime.”
