Chapter 19 – The Scent of Civilization and a Sea Serpent

 

Okay, let’s summon the Exult 45.

“Rimu, I’m summoning a new ship now. Do you want to see it?”

I called out to Rimu, who was still in the bag, and it came out and climbed up to my shoulder.

“…Ship …?”

“Yes, I’m going to summon a big ship. Want to see it?”

“…See…”

Rimu said and settled on top of my head; it’s so cute.

“Ship summoning.”

A ship with a pure white hull and black reflective windows came out of a large glowing magic circle.

Is the second floor the cockpit? The window on the first floor is black. Is that some kind of privacy glass? Where do we get in? There is a lowered area at the back of the ship; I can get in from there.

There is a lot of space in the back; this is called the aft deck, right? The rear deck is quite large and could have been used for a bigger bath, right?

Leaving the inside of the ship for later, I go around to the bow deck, which is also called the forward deck.

Finally, I went inside the ship. Oh, this is the salon, with an L-shaped sofa, a high table, and two stools.

Going up the second floor, there’s a blue transparent table and sofas on both sides, here’s the sky lounge; I can see a good view of the outside from the window. I wonder if the air conditioner can be operated; it smells like civilization.

Rimu is excited, too; it’s bouncing his head on my head.

“Rimu, it’s amazing, isn’t it? So luxurious!”

“…Luxurious…”

Next to the galley is the kitchen. There’s an electric stove, a microwave, a freezer, and a refrigerator. There are dishes and kitchen utensils.

Going to the back, here is the guest room; there are two beds; why are there steps? You can see a skylight when you lie down. Oh, there’s a toilet next to it.

Next, here is the owner’s room, with storage and a large bed, so three people can sleep. There’s a toilet and shower room in the back. Just looking at this room is very exciting.

After going outside, I climbed up the ladder to the flying bridge. This is the cockpit.

Oh, yes, it’s about time to do the ship’s disguise. It would be a waste to change the interior, and since no one except Ines and Felicia will probably try to get inside, I’ll just leave it as it is.

The exterior needs to be changed, disguised as a wooden structure to make it look like a slightly different magical ship? It’s probably okay, right? Okay, the disguise is complete.

There is still plenty of time before tomorrow morning, so let’s enjoy this ship. I made some tea in the kitchen, brought out some fruit, and had a tea party in the sky lounge with Rimu.

Yes, gorgeous. I relax as I watch Rimu happily digest the fruits. Now let’s take a bath. I boil a lot of water in the kitchen and fill the bathtub. There is a shower, but I want to try a bath with a sea view.

This time, I summoned a bathtub boat on the forward deck, which looks like it has a nice view. I undress and soak in the bathtub. The weather is clear, and the blue ocean is all around me.

Rimu, who had been exploring the front deck, climbs up to the top of the bath.

“Do you want to take a bath, Rimu?”

“…Yes…”

“I see; you should take a nice long soak. And don’t absorb the bath water.”

“…Yes…”

Rimu fearfully dipped its body into the hot water and slowly got into the hot water. Rimu floats in hot water and drifts in hot water. I didn’t know slime could float.

“Are you alright, Rimu? Is there anything wrong? If you feel any discomfort, get out of the hot water right away.”

“…Like it…”

Yeah, does that mean you like it? Well, if you’re happy with it, that’s good. I go up after enjoying the bath slowly. Rimu is still floating in the bath.

It’s getting dark, so I prepare dinner in the lamp’s light.

“Rimu, dinner’s ready.”

“…Food…”

We eat dinner together, enjoying Rimu’s quick reaction to the food.

“I think it’s time to go to bed.”

I lie down on the bed in the owner’s room and shut my eyes. I feel a little uncomfortable, as the bed is more comfortable than my own bed in Japan. I didn’t know luxury beds could be this comfortable. Good night.

When I wake up, I feel refreshed, probably because I had a good sleep. After having breakfast with Rimu and getting ready for the day, I go up to the flying bridge and depart for the southern city.

It is still dark when I leave for the southern city. It’s too bad that I can’t see the scenery because it’s nighttime on the sea.

It’s almost time to go to the southern city and proceed through the sea at dawn. It’s nice to sit back in a comfortable chair and maneuver the ship from a high vantage point with a great view.

When I arrive at the dock, no one has arrived yet, so I make myself a cup of tea and wait for the others to arrive. After a while, Ines and Felicia arrived, each pulling a cart.

“Ines, Felicia, good morning. It looks like you got plenty of food.”

“”Good morning, Master.””

“I think everything is well stocked. Shall we load it up now?”

“Yes. Let’s just load it up on the aft deck, and it will be repatriated when we sail away.”

“”Yes.””

While we were loading the food on the aft deck, Camille-san delivered the spider silk to us. It seems that Dino-san and Enrico-san came to see us off as well.

“Camille-san, Dino-san, Enrico-san, good morning. Sorry for coming so early in the morning.”

“No, I want Wataru-san to do his best, so this is nothing. Please come back with lots of pepper.”

“Haha, I’ll do my best.”

We load our luggage onto the ship and chat with Camille-san and the others. They asked me, “It’s a strange magic ship. Do you know where it was excavated?” It was difficult to disguise it when they asked me. I had to be careful.

“Then, Camille-san, Dino-san, and Enrico-san, I’m off.”

We departed from the southern city while listening to the words of wishes for the safety and success of the voyage.

The destination was the southern continent, the beginning of a long voyage that would take at least a month by magic ship.

While I was lost in emotion, Ines and Felicia came up to the flying bridge.

“Master, this ship is amazing. There are some things I don’t understand, but there are many wonderful things here.”

“Master, the beds were soft and big. The chairs were wonderful.”

“It seems you both like the ship. Just wait a little while until I get my stuff sorted out on the aft deck; then, I’ll show you how to use it.”

“Yes.”

I need to purchase three additional rubber boats to load my belongings. It’s hard to see the boat screen because of the amount of stuff. Can’t it be put together? Oh, it’s done; now it’s much easier to see.

Now that the cargo has been sorted out, I show the two of them how to use the facilities on board.

They were surprised by the air conditioner and the refrigerator freezer, tilted their heads at the explanation of the microwave oven, and seemed to abandon their understanding at the electromagnetic plate and the water coming out of the faucet. Well, it doesn’t matter if they know how to use it, right?

When I explained the shower and toilet, they were delighted. They wanted to use them immediately, so the three of us went into the small shower room and poured ourselves off each other. It was a blissful time.

“Ufufu, that felt so good; this magic ship is amazing. I’ve been on other magic ships as an escort, but they are totally different.”

This ship is not a magic ship, but I wonder whether it is a magic ship when it can be cleaned up by just wishing for it. Water and fuel can be restored with just a thought, so maybe I can just call it a magic ship?

“I think so; if you were to use an analogy, a luxury cruise ship would be like a small town with the finest of the finest. It has the finest rooms, the most prestigious variety of stores, and the best entertainment facilities you’ve ever seen, maybe…”

I’ve never been on a luxury liner; I can only imagine.

“I know, I can’t imagine it, but I’m looking forward to it.”

“Is there anything you don’t understand, Felicia?”

“There are many things I don’t understand, but I know how to use it, so I think I can figure it out.”

“If you have any more questions, just ask me, and we will be on our way again soon, and you two are free to spend your time as you please.”

After a while, they came up with a cup of tea.

“Would you like a cup of tea?”

“Thank you; I’ll take a break.”

While talking with them, I suddenly thought, isn’t this the life of a winner? Two beautiful women on a luxurious ship, isn’t this the life of a winner?

Ah, but not enough good food, good drinks, and entertainment, right? If I can summon a luxury cruise ship, I can definitely live a winner’s life, but right now, I think I’m still on the verge of winning. I have to work harder.

We proceeded, ate dinner, flirted in the owner’s room, and went to sleep. On the morning of the fifth day of such a happy life, we were attacked by a sea monster for the first time.

“Master, Master, may I have a moment?”

“Hmm? Morning?”

I wondered what was wrong. Usually, they would wait for me to wake up. There is no kiss, and when I wake up, I see Felicia in front of me with a puzzled look on her face.

“Is something wrong?”

“Yes, I don’t know what to say, but you would know if you went outside. A sea serpent is hitting this ship with its body.”

“? Anyway, I’m going to go see what’s going on.”

I get out of bed and head to the aft deck, where Ines is watching the sea serpent’s body slamming into the ship with amusement. She looks like she has plenty of leeways, but even when the sea serpent hits the ship, there is no vibration at all, which is impressive.

“Ara, good morning, Master.”

She approaches and gives me a morning kiss. Felicia, who had forgotten to kiss me, rushed over to give me a kiss, too. Both of them are quite relaxed.

“Oh, Rimu, don’t get too close; it’s dangerous.”

For some reason, Rimu was very interested in the sea serpent and approached it, so I hurriedly picked it up.

“…?…”

Why are you sending me a questioning thought there?

“So what shall we do, Master?”

“Umm, this barrier won’t be broken, so I’d say we’re fine as we are. It’s depressing, isn’t it? Can Ines and Felicia take it down?”

“Well, I don’t know. I think I can do some damage, but it might escape before I can defeat it.”

“If it’s going to run away, why don’t we let it go? What do you think, Master?”

“Yes, you don’t have to force yourself to beat it.”

“I understand. Then, before we attack in earnest, you should give the sea serpent a hit, too, Master. Then if we can defeat it, I think Master’s level will increase.”

“Is that so? Then let’s have Rimu attack it too. Rimu is level 1, so I think it will level up tremendously.”

I took out my bow and fired several shots at the sea serpent. It doesn’t even sting, it’s being repelled, but I wonder if I’ll get any experience out of it. After that, I let Rimu shoot a stone and hit the sea serpent. It doesn’t work at all, but Rimu seems to be enjoying it.

“…♪…”

“It’s not working at all, is that it?”

“Yes. Now, if we can get the sea serpent down, we’ll all be leveled up. Felicia, prepare the most powerful lightning magic, and I’ll unleash the most powerful fire magic; we’ll go at the same time.”

“Yes.”

Both of them draw large, complex magic circles with their staves.

“Here we go, then.”

“Yes.”

The magic circle glows and transforms into flames and lightning, striking the sea serpent. Huh? Don’t they shout out the name of the magic or something? I’ll ask them later.

With a thunderous sound, the vapor that spreads across my field of vision subsides, and there is the sea serpent, shredded but still alive. That thing doesn’t fall down. This monster is amazing.

“It’s furious; it doesn’t look like it’s going to run away, so let’s give it another shot.”

“Yes.”

The sea serpent was furious, and it was hitting the ship with its body, and a second magic shot was fired at the sea serpent.

“Did it escape?”

“No, I think we took it down; it didn’t even twitch as it sank.”

“We must retrieve the sea serpent; it would be a shame to waste it.”

“Eh? Oh, that’s right… We don’t have any preparations, so we won’t be able to make it this time. Let’s buy some rope for the next time.”

Ines looked disappointed as she looked at the sunken sea serpent.

“Is the sea serpent expensive?”

“Yes, compared to sea dragons, they are cheap, but sea monsters are basically very strong and difficult to defeat, so they are very valuable. The sea serpent class is almost impossible to defeat, so it is worth the platinum coin.”

“That’s terrific. We’ll get some rope prepared while we’re at it. We’ll have to make sure we collect it next time.”

“The sea serpent’s attack would normally sink most magic ships. Well, with this ship, we won’t have any problems, but remember, it’s a monster that you have to be prepared to die if you encounter it in a normal situation.”

“All right, well, let’s have breakfast while we check our levels.”

“Oh, right, I’m starving, so let’s do that.”

“Well, we’ll get it ready for you, and you should dress yourselves.”

“Yeah.”

Oh, I forgot, I came out here in my underpants. The sea serpent would get mad at me for that. I got ready and checked my level while eating my breakfast.

“Amazing, Ines has gained seven levels, and Felicia has gained 5. Rimu and I are gaining 32 and 25 levels, respectively.”

“Ufufu, yes, the higher your level, the harder it is to raise your level. As expected, if you defeat an A-rank monster, which is close to S-rank, you will be able to raise your level by that much, right?”

“Right; if it weren’t for this ship, we wouldn’t even be able to fight it.”

The sea serpent is such a great thing. I thought it looked strong, but I didn’t expect it to be that strong because it didn’t even make an impact when it hit the ship.

“Rimu has improved a lot; aren’t you happy?”

“…… Rim, I’m so happy ……”

“Oh, Rimu said two words. That’s amazing Rimu, that’s amazing. Is it because its intelligence has improved? Level up is essential, isn’t it?”

“…Rimu, happy…”

“It’s amazing; Rimu is very amazing.”

“…Rimu, happy…”

The two looked on with a wry smile as I spoke to Rimu.

    1. Thanks!

      Damn, that’s a yacht. I didn’t understand the level of boat he was actually buying at all. It’s also preconceptions I had, because that would not be suitable as a merchant vessel at all with his skills.

      All those white interiors, though… Auto cleaning is indeed an excellent skill to have.

      Like

      1. It’s a 45, some 45 yatch have three rooms and 1 small room for help like a amde or a crew only has a bed and washing machine though it it could be converted into storage some 45 also have grills or a place to store jet ski.
