Episode 8. Lizardman Slime
* * *
“Speaking of items, what kind of item does the Minister of Magic need?”
Ymir, or now Emily, lowered her head.
“It’s not a big deal. “If you are a magic merchant, this is something you can easily obtain.”
She looked at me quietly.
“Golem’s core, cat’s breath, forge’s flame… … .”
“The last one would be the mistletoe of the world tree that exists in the elf forest.”
“You know me well.”
“Not all of them are easily available.”
Emily quenched her appetite.
“Can I get it?”
“It may be difficult, but it is not impossible. But why on earth is this happening?”
“I have something to use.”
This is an item that must be made by the Minister, known as the Minister of Torture and the greatest wizard. “I wonder what it is.”
“Don’t try to find out in depth.”
“How long will it take?”
“When I’m ready, I’ll come straight to your house.”
“I wish I could give it to you as soon as possible.”
“Can it be done tomorrow?”
“Is it perhaps because of the gift you received a while back?”
Emily says about Seria.
Emily’s eyes sparkled sharply as she spoke.
It was Seria who had persistently harassed Yeoju, now empress.
There was no way that Ymir, or rather Emily, who was the sub-male lead, had any good feelings towards her.
Even now, when he changed his gender and became a complete woman.
“Should I have to say that?”
“Just make sure you bring me what I ordered.”
“All right. Oh, and Minister.”
“Is there anything else you want to talk about?”
“no. “Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the Minister in the palace.”
“What do you mean?”
“I think you need to start looking for someone to marry.”
Maurice is now 22.
In this world, it was also the right age for marriage.
“Recently, I heard that there was someone who was doing matchmaking. Was that you?”
“I used to be a man, and now I’m a woman. “I can understand the emotions of both men and women.”
Even when she was a man, Emily was so popular that she was famous within the palace.
“Anyway, many ladies are thinking about you, Minister. “If you want a list right now, it’ll be five books long.”
“I don’t think so.”
Emily smiled seductively.
Blue hair was flowing.
Who would think that she’d been a man a few months ago?
Even the standing posture with the large br*asts gathered together as if to emphasize them.
“If you’re trying to tempt me, it’s not enough.”
Emily clicked her tongue.
He is not an easy person to be attracted to a woman who used to be a man.
“Am I that unattractive?”
“That’s not the problem.”
“The problem is that you’re a man.”
“If you do, get out. “Before I force you out.”
“Before you kicked me out, I think you need to get a grip, because there’s been a rumor going around lately that you the Minister likes man.
I snapped my fingers.
Emily’s body exploded and flew out the door.
‘Your personality has completely changed.’
After becoming a woman, her personality changed strangely.
How sad was it to lose her love, I wonder if she changed her last name.
You won’t know unless you were her.
I looked at Jane, who was looking at me with interest from the side.
“Can you do my work for me today?”
“Me? “I don’t have any abilities.”
“It’s a simple thing. “All you have to do is sit here and stamp the documents that come in.”
“I just need to get a stamp? “On my own?”
“Of course, I will do the final confirmation.”
I have no intention of just watching mischievous Jane do strange things.
Jane, whose eyes were sparkling, made a sullen expression.
“That’s too bad.”
Jane’s red hair shook.
“Then can I ask you one thing?”
“Can you take care of the documents piled up over there?”
Are you unstable enough to create that item?
Telepathy was heard at the same time as the voice.
“It’s none of your business.”
I calmly answered the question and stood up.
“Do not worry! “I will do a great job as deputy minister!”
“Don’t increase your workload unnecessarily.”
“Do not worry. “I am the mascot of the Magic Tower!”
When I saw Jane wink, I sighed and left the office.
I took the portal and moved to the southern part of the empire.
I held my forehead because of the dizziness I felt after riding through a portal full of mana storms.
“I still can’t adapt.”
Still, it was enough to take into account the need to move over a space of several hundred kilometers at once.
I let out a dark blue breath and looked around.
It was a forest full of Drake’s poison, where ordinary people could have difficulty breathing.
I covered my mouth with my handkerchief and waved it away.
The wind blew and dispersed the green mist.
Then, my eyes met with a lizardman walking through the swamp.
“Long time no see.”
The guy stuck out his tongue and tilted his head.
Have I gone for too long?
The guy just looked at me blankly.
“I came to catch you guys.”
Sparks flew at my fingertips.
The Lizardman, sensing hostility, raised his scales and became wary of me.
In his hand was a crudely made spear.
I threw a swirling fireball from my hand at the Lizardman.
It was the simplest and most aggressive magic.
Before the guy could react, a fireball burned his body.
After a short scream, the guy collapsed.
And the bushes shook in the distance.
‘Yes, you should come quickly.’
I deliberately used loud magic.
It was too inefficient for me to search for the Lizardmen, so I made them chase me.
Lizardmen who looked similar to the monsters they had killed the first time attacked, holding their spears tightly.
“You came quickly.”
An arrow dipped in poison was shot.
Numerous spears were aimed at me.
Everything failed to reach me and I lost their power.
It was thanks to the magic shield I cast before entering the portal.
There were no monsters here that could break this shield.
I cast an attack spell.
After fire magic, the strongest magic for lizardmen is lightning magic.
The best magic to catch more than a dozen Lizardmen is, of course, Chain Lightning.
“Let’s finish it quickly.”
The electric current that started from my hand struck a group of lizardmen standing on the swamp.
All the monsters that had been twitching for a while fell.
“Hmm. “There is none.”
I quietly looked at the lizardmen.
The guy I was looking for was nowhere to be seen.
I passed the lizardmen and went deeper into the forest.
‘When will it come out?’
The guy I was looking for was a lizardman with a white pattern on his chest.
The white-patterned Lizardman’s essence was a top-quality material capable of condensing mana.
The most important material for crafting items.
Because the collection difficulty is so high, I visited Drake Forest myself.
‘There are only a few people who can penetrate the poisonous fog that hangs over the forest.’
I blew to keep the poison from reaching me.
How long did I walk?
I found a lizardman standing alone.
‘I found him.’
It was a lizard man with white markings.
I shouted at the guy who was looking around.
The eyes of the guy who made eye contact trembled mercilessly.
“I hope you don’t run away.”
The electric current that made a crackling sound reached right in front of the guy’s nose.
The guy, whose body was stiff, was unable to move even a single step and trembled.
“Just give me the real juice and I’ll leave quietly.”
The guy who understood what I said nodded his head vigorously.
The Lizardman squirted out fluid from the pattern.
I poured the thick green liquid into a bottle I had prepared in advance.
By the time the bottle was half full, the guy’s face had turned pale.
“This is enough.”
I had no intention of exploiting it further.
How can I kill a guy who readily hands me such good ingredients?
“I’ll come back later if I need it.”
I said as I put the bottle in my arms.
As if he understood this, his face became even paler.
After collecting the lizardman’s essence, I returned to the mansion.
‘I’m glad I didn’t listen to Jane’s chatter.’
Even if I don’t, I’ll die of exhaustion.
As we entered the mansion, Sebastian greeted us.
“Sir, the magic store sent me something.”
“So I had someone place it in the master’s laboratory.”
“Good work. “What’s going on with Seria?”
“We are educating her from beginning to end.”
“Did she listen well?”
“She was a bit rebellious, but thanks to you, it’s not that bad.”
“I’ll take care of her until tomorrow.”
“Don’t worry. “We will train her so that she can do the basics.”
I went up to the lab and carefully checked the items Emily had sent me.
The golem’s core, the cat’s breath, the forge’s flame, and the world tree’s mistletoe.
“Everything is correct.”
Lastly, the lizardman essence that I collected.
After checking all the ingredients, I closed the lab door.
