Chapter 193

193 . Vines



「Onii-chan, if there's so many【purple nettle】, we're going to be very rich, right?」


 Aya's pupils turned into ¥ marks . . . . . .


「We're not going to sell it . 」



「I've decided to use them to level up the potioncraft skill . 」

「Ah, there's that, huh . 」


 Why is Aya not interested in potion crafting?

 Even though science experiment stuff is fascinating . . . . . .



「Alright, let's split up and collect the【purple nettles】everyone!」

「「Yes!」」「Yes yes . 」


 Only Aya has low spirit but―

 everyone started to collect purple nettle .



「Seiji oniichan, this【purple nettle】is a little withered up, is it fine?」


 Hilda brought a【purple nettle】which is a little withered up .

 Or how should I put it, it's still a little embarrassing to be called『onii-chan』 .


 When used appraisal to the withered【purple nettle】 . . . . . .



│【Purple nettle -2】

│A purple nettle which can be used as a talisman

│Condition: Withering

│Rarity: ★★★★



「Umu, its condition doesn't seem to be good .

 It seems to be better to choose the not withered ones if possible . 」

「Yes, I understand . 」


 However, we haven't been able to find much【purple nettle】with good condition when we looked around . . . . . .

 What's to be done with it, I wonder~ .



「Onii-chan, why don't you try using【Magic stone of Earth】?」

「That's right! I have that!」


 When I took out the【magic stone of earth】from the inventory―

 Aya quickly took the【magic stone of earth】away from me .


「I'll do it!」

「Oi, if you overdo it . . . 」



 Aya, without listening to what I've said―

 sandwiched the【magic stone of earth】in both of her palms and began to dance in order to pray .


「Come on, dance together with me, Hilda . 」

「Y-, yes . 」



 In accordance with the dance of the two people, the【purple nettle】in the surroundings have become vigorous one after another .

 Aya who have been caught up in the moment steadily poured her magic power . . . . . .



 Before I knew it, the area has been filled with vigorous【purple nettle】 .


 When I used【appraisal】, there are【purple nettle +1】and【purple nettle +2】here and there .





 Aya is pleased that she took Hilda's hands in hers .


 Anyone can do it if they use the【magic stone of earth】!



 In the end, we were able to harvest a total of 300【purple nettle】 .

 The potioncraft skill will surely raise with this .



「Onii-chan, only this grass is different from the others . 」

「Which one?」


*Wiggles . *



 Did it move!?」

「N?  You're stupid, onii-chan~ .

 Plants can't move!」


「No, I'm sure it moved!」

「If you say to that extent, let's pull it out, shall we?」



「Oi, stupid, stop . 」


 I suddenly sensed【danger】and tried to stop Aya but . . . . . .





 A『Vine』suddenly emerged from the ground and undulated like a tentacle―

 It twined around Aya's ankle, hanging her upside down .


「A-, Aya!」


「Onii-chan, help!」



 However, at the same time when Aya was being hanged upside down, a『vine』also approached Elena and Hilda .


 First of all, my top priority is to protect the low-leveled Hilda .

 I've quickly rushed toward Elena and Hilda and sliced off the『vine』that was trying to attack the two .


「Seiji-sama, thank you very much!」

 B-, But, Aya-san!」





 When I turned around, Aya . . . . . .


 had been swallowed up to those sack-shaped thing like pitcher plant . . . . . .


「A-, Ayaaaa!!」



「Gya! I-, It melts!!!」


 Aya is struggling inside the bag .


「I'm going to save you now!!」



 When I cut the stem supporting the sack with the sword of trial,

 the sack fell down with a thud,

 the pitcher plant could no longer move with a single stroke .



 From within the fallen sack―

 is the muddy-melted, Aya's . . . . . .



 pants . . . . . .





「Onii-chan! Don't look this way!」

「Good, you're safe Aya!!」


 I unconsciously hugged Aya .


「Idiot! Don't hug me!!」


 Aya hit my head repeatedly―

 but I didn't mind and hugged Aya .



「It's really good that you're safe . 」

「I'm not safe! Let go!」


「Were you hurt somewhere!?」


 When I look all over Aya's body . . . . . .



 there wasn't any injury .



「Don't look, you idiot!!」


 I've been hit in the face .



 Although Aya had managed to recover her balance somehow, her legs had fallen into the sack―

 and she seemed to have been submerged in『liquefying liquid』inside the sack up to her『navel』area .


 I used【Appraisal】to the『liquefying liquid』that gushed out of the sack of the unmoving pitcher plant .



│【Liquefying liquid of purple pitcher plant】

│Although it can't melt the human skin where magic power circulates,

│the liquefying liquid can melt clothes and hair .

│Rarity: ★★★★



 It can melt not only clothes but『hair』, huh . It's scary .


 N?  Lower half from the『navel』? Hair?


 The answer I've arrived at from this hint . . . . . .



「Aya, you've saved the trouble of disposing the unwanted hair . . . . . .

 It's good, huh!」
