The Saint’s Magic Power is Omnipotent (WN) Chapter 75
Chapter 75: Morgenhaven
Morgenhaven is a port town to the east of Slantania Kingdom.
There are a lot of hills around the town, and you can’t see it until you climb up the highest hill.
As we climbed up the hill, I peeked out of the carriage window and saw a town with sea ahead.
The coachman noticed this and stopped the carriage, so I could gaze at the town.
We are on a lower hill, but the town looked hilly, and there were a lot of slopes in town.
It looked a little hard to move around in town.
I shifted my eyes towards the harbour and saw several sailing ships stationed there.
There were ships with white sails a little offshore.
Will those ships enter the harbour?
Or are they just departing?
“We’re nearly there,” Jude, who was sitting next to me, said as I looked out the window.
I pulled my neck back in, corrected my posture, and the carriage started moving again.
A week after Director suggested that I go to Morgenhaven, I decided to take a longish holiday.
I’ve never taken a holiday before, so Director told me to take my time.
I think his words sounded misleading.
It’s not like I’ve never had a holiday before.
But, everyone in the research institute said, “Those aren’t holidays.”
I think I’ve had plenty of holidays making cosmetics for myself, cooking and reading books in the royal palace library, you know?
In any case, it was hard to resist since they might have rice here, so I accepted Director’s offer.
This time, Jude came with me.
Jude also seemed interested in foreign items, so we decided that he might as well come with me.
In addition, knights from the 3rd Knight Order are also with us.
They were not on holiday, but working as guards.
Unlike Japan, this kingdom had bandits as well as demons.
The main highways are relatively safe because they are managed by the feudal lords.
However, that didn’t mean that there wasn’t any danger.
So, they were with me this time as guards.
It was a proposal from the royal palace, but I was grateful, so I accepted.
By the way, Captain-san isn’t with us.
I thought he would come with us, but unfortunately, he will be staying at the royal capital.
He is also a captain, so he had to do a lot of work at the royal capital.
He came to see me when we departed, but he looked really disappointed.
However, I think Captain-san is staying at the royal capital for a different reason.
I wasn’t going on this trip as the 【Saint】but as a normal person.
Why you ask?
You know, a lot of things will be exaggerated if I go as the 【Saint】.
We are moving as a merchant group to avoid that.
The knights are people who would look inconspicuous even if they were dressed as mercenaries.
However, if Captain-san were to be with us, then no matter how incognito we dress, people will still feel that we are an esteemed group.
His shiny aura can’t be hidden even if he dresses as a mercenary…
I feel like that’s the main reason why he stayed in the royal capital.
I will buy him an unusual gift from a foreign kingdom even if I can’t find rice.
Of course, I’ll buy some for Director and the researchers as well.
We entered town and stopped in front of the inn where we will be staying.
I wanted to get off as soon as possible since I had been sitting in the carriage for a long time and stretch my stiff body.
Jude got down first, and when I was about to get off, I saw a hand held out in front of me.
Is Jude going to escort me?
I took the outstretched hand, lifted my face to give thanks, and froze.
“Welcome to Morgenhaven.”
There stood Oscar-san.
Why is he here?
The question must have shown on my face because he gave me an explanation as I got off the carriage.
Oscar-san had come to Morgenhaven for an entirely different reason.
Then, he heard that I was coming to Morgenhaven to search for ingredients and rushed here.
“I had to come to see you since you were here, Sei-sama.”
“You didn’t have to worry about it.”
“I do. We have our shops because of you.”
That’s an exaggeration.
I didn’t say it, but it showed on my face.
I smiled wryly in return, but Oscar-san continued to smile as if he didn’t mind.
Jude checked in the inn while Oscar-san was explaining things to me, and we were shown to our rooms.
For some reason, Oscar-san was with us.
I thought it was strange, and Oscar-san revealed that he was staying at the same inn.
“This is a good inn. It’s beautiful, and the food is delicious.”
Can I believe that it’s delicious?
I couldn’t help but think when I thought about how food is in this kingdom.
I decided to think about the food after, and followed after the person who was showing us to our rooms.
I was guided to a back room on the second floor.
The one before mine is the knights’ room, and the one before theirs is Jude’s room.
The knights were placed next to me so they can guard me.
I froze when we got to the inn, and now I’m freezing again after I’ve had a look inside my allocated room.
It’s a little big to use alone, but isn’t this a pretty good room?
Is it alright for me to stay in such a good room even if we look like merchants?
If Jude’s room is the same as mine, then I can understand that this is normal.
Hmm, I’ll check Jude’s room later.
After being overwhelmed by the size of the room, I moved on and sorted my luggage.
I only had to hang my clothes in the closet, so I was done in no time.
After that, I went to the dining hall on the first floor.
Jude and I decided that we would meet up after sorting out our luggage to talk about what we will do.
I walked down the stairs, looked around and saw Jude.
Oscar-san was with him.
I don’t think they know each other, so they might be introducing themselves.
Oscar-san noticed me as I approached and waved.
“What were you talking about?”
“Just a simple introduction, and about the ships which arrived today.”
I asked, and Oscar-san gave me the answer I was expecting, and an interesting one.
I looked at Jude, and he nodded with a smile, “A ship carrying ingredients just arrived today.”
“Yup. Sei-sama, you came here for foreign grains, right? It seems like this ship is filled with grains.
How lucky am I?!
I did a victory pose in my mind, and Jude asked Oscar-san what kind of grains they were.
Unfortunately, Oscar-san didn’t know about the shape of the grain or any other details.
However, he told us that it was a staple food in a foreign kingdom, and my expectations were raised.
It might be in the market tomorrow since it arrived today, so we decided to go see what they were tomorrow morning.
Other foods also arrived today, so I’m very excited to go to the morning market.
Even if they don’t sell it tomorrow, I’ll be staying here for a few days, so it should go up for sale during that time.
Oscar-san said that he would look up the items which aren’t sold at the market while he’s working.
I was really grateful when he said, “If there are any items you need, tell me and I’ll order them.”
I think I’ll take him up on his word at that time. After talking about tomorrow’s schedule, we decided to rest in our rooms to relieve our fatigue from travelling.
