Or, to be more accurate, 90 days 7 hours 34 minutes and 52 seconds.
How can I so accurately affirm the time to this extent? That is due to the correction effect of the Unique Skill 『Great Sage』.
I have to say, this skill is seriously convenient. Whenever I’m troubled I call the 『Great Sage』! And it teaches me everything. According to the 『Great Sage』, it’s taken exactly 90 days for the skill to become established. By established, apparently it means getting attached to this world.
I thought that surely it meant becoming fixed to me, but it seems the skills I possess aren’t on the level of attachment, instead they’re etched into my soul.
The explanation I was given was, that in the initial state it was in, upon arriving in this world, it couldn’t reply to me at all, so it had to access and hijack the “Voice of the World”.
I didn’t get any of it though. I was told that normally, there isn’t supposed to be a convenient skill that answers questions by speaking into my mind.
You can only hear the “Voice of the World” in the case of events such as changes occurring in the world, the acquisition of skills, or 『Evolution』.
In order to reply to my questions, 『Great Sage』 seems to be making use of that “Voice”. I find the way of this world to be peculiar, but apparently it’s just an ordinary thing here.
Although, that’s not to say that acquiring skills or 『Evolution』 are common occurrences. “Skills” are a rarity, because they can only be acquired when the world acknowledges a certain growth in an individual. On the other hand, 『Evolution』 is supposedly something completely out of reach for the average layman.
Well, even though I only vaguely understood all this, I had no other choice than to come to terms with it. Although 『Great Sage』 has become able to reply to my questions, in the end it remains passive and doesn’t possess a will of it’s own.
If I don’t ask something first, it won’t speak to me at all. I find that part regrettable.
Even so, I’m quite happy, since now even a one-way conversation is possible.
Even if conversing with my own skill, in my previous world, would be considered wildly delusional… And so that’s how it is. Having nothing to do in the darkness, I continued asking questions.
As a result, it became unmistakably clear that I was truly a slime (viscous creature=unidentified life-form).
I also found out the reason why I didn’t need food nor sleep. If a slime in this world manages to absorb magic essence, it will no longer require food. In areas where magic essence is low in concentration, monsters or small animals must be absorbed to replenish your essence.
It’s the reason why in this world, unusually, the slimes in areas with scarce amounts of magic essence are fiercely strong. Normally though, the stronger monsters reside in the areas with more magic essence.
What this means is that in my current location, the concentration of magic essence is dense to the point where I don’t require food. Regarding my lack of need for sleep,
Basically, isn’t my current condition similar to that of a PC implementing RAID?
*RAID = using multiple hard drives to handle data
As I was thinking that, I received a reply,
『Great Sage』 is surprisingly good at backchanneling huh.
And, as for the [Great Sage] skill effects I was interested in…,
In practice, the disclosure of information is limited only to the information and matter of affairs I first come into contact with.
In other words, this ability requires that I personally experience something before it is possible to analyze it.
On the other hand, Chant Canceling. About that, does it mean that If I learned magic, I won’t need to chant for spells?
But rather than that, there really is magic!!!? The answer was “YES”. Now that I knew, I couldn’t help becoming impatient in wanting to learn magic.
In the midst of helplessness, I asked [Great Sage] to see if magic was possible for me, and of course, it was impossible.
But a flash of inspiration hit me then.
Is it possible to link together the abilities Analysis from 『Predator』 and Parallel Calculation from 『Great Sage』?
Though I say that, there’s nothing to analyze huh…hang on?
The stock pile of grass in my “Stomach”, which I had gathered up during that period of wasting away. I wonder what those are? Well, it’s not like there’s anything better to do, so I might as well analyze that.
And so I immediately tried it out.
What I thought were weeds, which had been collected out of boredom…
This must be what they call having an unexpected windfall.
Immediately, I began creating restorative medicines and salves. Though I say that, the production proceeded of it’s own accord inside of my body, so I didn’t really do anything.
The analysis didn’t take more than a second, and the actual creation was completed in 3 seconds. I can make 100 of them in 5 minutes.
I’m not sure of the medicine quality since there’s nothing to compare to, but after identifying, it turned out to be of “High Quality”.
The result was quite satisfying. Frankly, be it creating or analyzing, the speed was just positively staggering.
According to 『Great Sage』, it usually takes much longer.
I made the right decision in linking Parallel Calculation.
As a test, I cancelled the link and tried creating another one. It took 50 minutes.
The difference in speed was astounding.
It looks like I have good compatibility with this skill of mine. Not that I was aware of it…. Although there seemed to be some weeds mixed in, most of what was growing in this place was Hipokute grass.
In preparation for the time when I would need it, I resolved to mow down every single blade of grass, and commenced the Predation.
At the same time, I diligently continued to create restorative medicines inside my “Stomach”.
After all is said and done though, in the end I’m still blind in the dark. Grass harvesting was pretty much the only thing I could do. During this time, I had forgotten all about being cautious.
It was partly because of gaining a companion (?) that could answer my questions, though it was my own skill and a passive one at that, which caused me to get carried away in my excitement.
Another factor was that in the past 90 days, I hadn’t felt any danger to my life, because I never found even a hint of other living creatures.
At any rate, I was caught off guard. Plop! (Author’s note: MC can’t hear what happened. Please enjoy while keeping an objective image in your mind!)
*Slime went Plop
**Maybe you were thinking different but not anymore Eh?, was all I could think in that moment.
I sensed a sudden change in my body, somehow feeling as if I became lighter or heavier…which plunged me into extreme uneasiness.
Could it be…I fell into water? During the past 90 days, I never felt a single drop of water hit me from above. That is to say, I was carelessly mistaken, thinking this place was either a cave where rain did not reach, or that the water would be much deeper in.
It seems I’ve slipped into a river or the like. It’s unlikely for a river to be indoors, so could this possibly be an underground lake inside the cave…? Up to this point, in this darkness where I can’t see my surroundings, I had always moved while cautiously taking one step at a time.
Despite this, I let the usefulness of my skills get to my head, and this is the result of recklessly going around eating grass…. I was negligent in checking my footing.
I always end up like this!
Easily acting on the spur of the moment and failing.
Among other things, in front of company clients I used to say, [Please leave it to me! I won’t break a sweat!], and because of that stupid habit of replying with such nonsense, I’ve lost count of how many times I saw hell.
This makes me remember the resentful eyes of my juniors back then. In the first place, ‘what kind of idiot goes running around in the pitch dark!’, is how I’d like to berate myself.
If I survive this, I’m lecturing myself. Nevertheless, though I always regret things, I’ll never reflect on them! Probably…. How should I put it, I’m rather composed right now.
In my present condition of having no limbs, I can’t even struggle in panic if I wanted to…
It’s the end for me.
It was a short life…no, a slime life.
In the face of impending suffocation, I braced my heart. … …… ……… The suffocating didn’t come.
Why is that? Is it possible that I haven’t fallen into water?
When it’s like this, it’s time to call on 『Great Sage』.
I promptly asked my question.
I see how it is~. It took 90 days, but I learned something new.
Be that as it may, it seems certain that I’ve been submerged in water.
I doubt I’ll be dying now, but that doesn’t change that I’m in a sticky situation.
How troubling, really. As of now, I have no idea whether I’m floating or still sinking.
Seeing as I have no arms or legs, I don’t think I’ll be swimming at time soon.
If I’ve sunk to the bottom, will I be able to crawl back out onto ground?
Or else, am I not floating or sinking, but being carried away by a current?
Rather than drifting away, I feel as if I’m inside of a cradle. It was as if I was gently swaying in an embrace, feeling so very comfortable…. This doesn’t feel like the current of water. Rather than a river, it’s closer to a lake. There’s no sensation of being carried away.
I think I’m bobbing up and down on the surface, but there’s no sign of myself sinking to the bottom.
It’s possible, that I’ll be staying like this forever.
This is an extremely bad situation.
Really, how troubling. But at that moment,
My brain cells=body of slime, thought up an amazing plan!
*Brain cells=body of slime, implying huge brain…I think By swallowing a large amount of water, isn’t it possible to propel myself outside by discharging water forcefully like a water jet?
I began acting at once. Naturally, it’s also because there’s nothing else to be done.
However, I could never have known, that this idea of mine would be the main cause of a fateful encounter…
My plan was quite excellent. At the least, if I didn’t think of this, it would not have lead to that encounter.
Nevertheless, I moved towards that one direction as if destiny was showing me the way. First of all, I swallowed enough water to fill 10% of my “Stomach” using 『Predator』. (Author’s note: MC is not aware of this, but the water level has noticeably dropped)
And then I ejected the water all at once.
The sense of liberation was exhilarating.
It’s the first time hearing it since I was conscious. I wonder if this is the “Voice of the World”.
There was no need for 『Great Sage』 to speak, so it most likely is, but both of them really give off the same feeling.
However, right now I don’t have the tiniest bit of mind to spare in verifying such things! Whiz! I felt my body accelerate, shooting myself out with the force of flying through the air…forward? (in this case, the direction I wanted to move towards)
To be honest, it might have been a good thing I couldn’t see this.
In my blindness, I could only feel the frightful movement speed of my hurtling body assailing me. I take it back.
No…I mean, being able to see this moment would indeed be quite terrifying but…being unable to see is intensely scary as well.
If you’ve experienced riding a jet coaster at the amusement park while blind, you might be able to empathize a little.
In my previous life? I’ve experienced it just once, in the paradise that is ruled by a certain mouse figure. Not to mention, in this current situation my safety is hardly guaranteed.
I want to knock myself out for thinking up of propulsion using a jet of water.
Immediately executing a plan without testing? Fool! Confirming safety is the basics isn’t it!!!
The fear is scattering my mind everywhere.
How long will this accelerating sensation continue…seriously, what kind of power did I put into that water jet. And as I thought that, Bam! Bounce! Roll roll, crash!!!
*I’m sorry And then the violent pain…didn’t come. Eh? I don’t seem to have taken damage…is it possible that I’ve been injured, yet only the pain is missing?
Slime inherent skill 『Self Regeneration』 has been activated. Will you allow assistance from the Unique Skill 『Predator』? YES/NO> Although there’s no pain, there is actual damage. Well it makes sense…I don’t know if it’s good or not, but even if there’s no pain, as long as I can detect abnormalities then it might be better off this way.
Let’s see, assistance from [Predator]? I don’t really get it but for the time being, “YES”. In that moment, it felt as if a portion of my body completely diminished. And then a short time later, the original volume of my body gradually returned.
It appears that, Predation was used on the damaged part, which was then analyzed and repaired.
How convenient this body is…next time, I’ll experiment to see much body volume can be reduced before action becomes impossible. It seems that no matter how much percentage of my body is decreased, my vitality won’t be affected…. Although I say that, I have a hunch that it’ll be quite dangerous, so I’ll make sure to tread lightly.
Yeah. As one would expect, I’ve become more cautious.
Although this time, I had a large quantity restorative medicine on me, there wasn’t a need to use them at all. In any case, though 10% of damage to my body could be called a serious injury, I’ve confirmed that it only took about 10 minutes to fully recover.
The next time I happen to take some damage (Which I hope won’t happen…) I’ll try using the restorative medicines. So, I wonder what kind of place this is? After confirming my body condition returning to normal, I checked my surroundings.
I can’t be sure that there aren’t any dangerous monsters in the vicinity.
Even if I’ve escaped from the water, it wouldn’t be a surprise if a monster that can’t cross water dwelled in this place. I began moving very carefully.
Recently, it feels like every time I think about being cautious, I fall into a dangerous situation, but it’s probably just my imagination.
And as if reading my mind… (Can you hear me? Little one?) I heard something. Status
