A Harem in the Fantasy World Dungeon Volume 1 Chapter 4 Part 11
Translator: DarkHeartedAlchemist Editor: Weasalopes
Oh… my… LORD ALMIGHTY!!!!!
The bread was soft and tender, and both the stew and the vegetables and meat (probably beef) were equally taste buds-blowing, and seasoned just right with spices, out of which pepper was the one with the strongest taste. It might be just my personal opinion, but you could definitely make a fortune with this dish if you started selling it in Japan. Sure, it is a bit pricey, but something like that could definitely be sold as a high level gourmet dish back in my old world!
I took my sweet time to enjoy this meal and then went back to my room. The rays of the setting sun coming in through the wooden window painted it with a slight shade of red. After literally a few minutes since I got here, I heard someone knocking at the door.
「Please come in!」
「Excuse me. I brought the hot water you requested.」
A man whom I have never seen before came into my room, carrying a tub filled with hot water with him. He placed it in the middle of the room and then put a towel next to it, immediately leaving the moment he finished doing his work. I thought about giving him a small tip for all the trouble he had to go through to bring it all the way to the third floor, but it looks like there was no need for me to do that.
I took off my clothes and wiped my body with the towel dipped in hot water. It was understandable that the Village Chief’s house did not have any bathing facilities, but if an inn like that does not have them as well, then I guess bathing might not be all that popular in this world? Maybe it’s just a luxury that only the filthy rich people can afford? This tub of water here cost me 20 Nar, so it was definitely not on the cheap side. But if I just neglected my personal hygiene and just kept on getting all dirty and sweaty without a care in the world then I’d be no different from an animal.
After getting myself clean, it was time to wash the clothes I was wearing as well. Unfortunately I do not have any soap on me, so all I could really do was to douse them in hot water and hang them out to dry. Besides, I don’t even know if one of the shops in town is even selling soap, or if it even exists in this world in the first place. Before I always took things like soap or cleaning detergent for granted, but now that I won’t have access to them anymore, I guess it will require some intense getting used to. The same goes for toothbrush and toothpaste. I think this world is still not technologically advanced enough to have those available. Also, when it comes to buying food, I could really, and I mean really use some convenience stores right now. I’m afraid that if I want to continue eating quality meals like the one I’ve eaten today then that’s going to get pretty darn expensive in the long run.
Since it will take some time for my clothes to dry I put on the pumpkin pants and one of the spare shirts I bought today. The pants didn’t have any kind of string or elastic in them so I couldn’t adjust them, but that was only a slight inconvenience. Now that I finally had some time for myself I could feel the fatigue of the entire day catching up to me, so I just laid down on the bed and drifted off to sleep in a matter of minutes.
I must have gotten at least a few good hours of rest, but when I woke up it was still dark outside, so I just lay still on the hard hay-mattress, surrounded on all sides by pitch-black darkness. I think I was dreaming. About Roxanne. I couldn’t recall what I was dreaming about exactly, but judging by the fact that my pants were still as clean as they were a few hours ago, at the very least I could be sure that it wasn’t “that” kinda dream. It’s funny though. It’s been a few days since I arrived in this world, and I have never once dreamt of Japan. Not even a single dream to remind me of my home world and the life I’ve led there (as shitty as it was). Maybe that’s because instead of longing for something that I will probably never see again, my brain has already switched its gears into thinking about the things that are within my reach, just waiting for me to grasp them firmly with my hands? Heh, who could have guessed that there would come a time when someone like me, who was considered to be a failure and sore loser by everyone would have a real chance at snagging a true 11/10 beauty for myself (putting aside the fact that she is going to become my slave)? When compared to the girls in my old world, she is a million times better, there’s no doubt in my mind about that! Not to mention that she is nothing like all those cutting board-like bitches that would report you to the police for sexual harassment the moment you’d dare to point that fact out to them! I can still see it so clearly, that image that has burned itself in my mind. Oh how her lovely melons jiggled up and down when she handed me that tea cup!!! Oh man, and now my horny mind is going on a rampage again, even though I have yet to obtain her as my own!
Initially I was afraid that I will always be alone in this new and strange world, but if I get her to be my companion, I’m sure she’ll be able to teach me everything that I’ll need to know to not stand out like a sore thumb. That is my current objective, and I absolutely cannot allow myself to fail at it. If there is anyone whom I could rely on, I’m sure it would be her.
After that I must have dozed off for some more, because when I opened my eyes again, the room wasn’t as dark as it was the last time. I exhaled heavily. Even though I went to bed relatively early last night (maybe it was around 7:00 pm, I can’t really tell because there are no watches or clocks here), my limbs still felt kinda sore and I was still tired. That is probably because to get to Veil I woke up pretty dang early and left the Village Chief’s house and the village before sunrise, and then had a day full of surprising and taxing activities, both mentally and physically.
This world has one major drawback: the lack of electricity and technology makes it so that there is pretty much nothing to do after dark, aside form the adult entertainment such as brothels, drinking and gambling. No gaming console, no TV, no PC, no internet, no manga, no books, no nothing! If all I can do is to just lay in here and bore myself to death, then maybe I should go out and collect more information from the bar or something like that? Yeah, that would be a pretty swell idea, if not for the fact that it probably wouldn’t go very well for me. As a kid who was constantly bullied, my communication skills were at the level where I normally wouldn’t be able to hold a normal conversation with others out of fear that they also might start picking on me. What about the last two days you ask? Ah right, I guess I was able to somehow get by just fine, but I think that is entirely because I’m still treating most of the people here as nothing but game NPC’s despite my best efforts to convince myself to switch that mentality into treating them like the proper human beings. You know how it is, right? In games, normal NPC’s won’t ever attack or turn on you, the player, unless they are scripted to do so or you provoke them yourself. As long as you don’t do that, they will continue to behave in a neutral manner and spew exposition and quest info your way all day long without batting an eye. At least that’s how I thought it would be here, but if any of those people outside are just as unpredictable as real people now, there’s no telling when some of them might get offended or triggered by something I say and pull a knife on me. And that brings me to my second concern. The money I have on me right now. With the amount I have on me right now, wandering around without any legitimate reason might not be a good idea.
One gold coin will allow me to stay at an inn for around a month, so 33 of them would allow me to have a place to stay for three years. Even back in Japan, no one would be parading around with that much money on them, much less go get themselves piss-drunk at a bar, so I’m not going to do that either. I’m going to be a better man and rise above!
