Nanomancer Reborn I've Become A Snow Girl? Book 5 Chapter 362
"Fuu" Opening her eyes, Shiro saw that they were still flying. She wasn't exactly surprised since she only took around 2 hours to upgrade everything.
Standing up, she gave her body a light stretch.
"You done mum? That was quick." Lisandra raised an eyebrow.
"Yeah. Surprisingly, after I recover a little from my injuries, upgrades are a lot easier than I had anticipated." Shiro smiled.
"So how many attunements have reached tier 4?"
"All of them." Shiro grinned.
"Yup, you heard me right. I managed to get all of them to tier 4." Shiro replied.
"Wait so all the elements that you have?" Lisandra asked while making a gesture for the number 11.
"Well damn" Was all Lisandra could say since she knew that it would normally take people a long time to upgrade their attunements. For Shiro to be able to complete everything within such a short span of time, she couldn't help but wonder what would have happened if Shiro was to be at peak condition.
Shaking her head, Lisandra only smiled wearily.
"Since you've finished everything mum, what else do you need to do?" She asked since she knew that Shiro didn't exactly want to talk to Ryota.
"Hmm I suppose I'll keep charging up this lotus. I've already charged it to 15.3 billion MP in my spare time but like, it's still not done." Shiro shook her head while pulling out the Tri Element Crystal Lotus.
At first, she had expected it to be charged at 15 billion. But when it went past that number, she knew that it wasn't going to be so easy.
"Do you want me to help with that?" Lisandra offered.
"Hm that would be helpful." Shiro nodded.
The sooner they finish charging up this item, the quicker she could get her attunements upgraded again.
As the journey continued, Shiro and Lisandra spent this time charging up the lotus with their mana.
"Alright, we'll stop here for the night. It'll take us another 2 days to get to Ermis if we continue at our pace." Jonathan called out as he patted the mount's head, asking it to land for now.
Looking down, Shiro saw that they were about to stop at a clearing in the forest. Since this is out in the wild, there is a good chance that a monster may attack them depending on what happens so she'll need to be vigilant.
Flexing her fingers, she released a few nanobots into the forest beneath them and had the bots set up small wire traps that would warn her of any approaching monsters.
Normally, setting things up this far away from her would take quite a bit of mana, but now that she was repaired by 38% and had access to more of her mana, this was an easy task.
By the time they had landed, Shiro had already set up traps in every direction to secure their safety.
"Right then, we'll set up a rotation for night watch now. I'll go first, then Ryota, Jasmine and then you two girls after is that ok?" Jonathan asked. He wanted the girls to go later since they were the employers. It would do no good for the employers to do the night watch first.
"Hmm I'm fine with that." Shiro nodded since it wasn't as if she'll go into a deep sleep. As soon as she realises that something is wrong, she'll wake up.
"Ok. Now that shifts are sorted, I'll decide on the time. Since we only realistically need 6 to 7 hours of sleep, we'll go for 1 and a half hour rotations each and wake up the next person."
With the night watch rotations sorted out, Jonathan then distributed tasks for everyone to do. Ryota set up the tents while Jasmine was responsible for preparing some food. As for Jonathan, he would be looking after the mount
Soon, the food was done as Shiro was pleasantly surprised at how much Jasmine had cooked and how delicious they looked.
Sitting around the table that Jonathan had pulled out, Shiro was about to eat when she saw Ryota staring at her with bloodshot eyes.
Flinching a little, she pulled Lisandra in front of her to block out the stares.
"Oi, Ryota, what are you even doing?" Jonathan sighed.
"It's dinner. The masked waifu is about to eat. There is only one choice and that is to remove her mask or reveal only a small portion of her lower face to eat. Regardless of what happens, the benefits I gain are beyond the risks so I am going to risk it." Ryota replied while continuously staring at the duo.
"Mum, why don't you reveal your face and get it over and done with?" Lisandra chuckled.
"Oiii, did you forget why I got us these masks to begin with!?" Shiro knocked Lisandra's head a little.
However, she was considering the choice of changing their faces so that they weren't noticed. Lisandra could be changed so that her face would resemble more of what she looked like as Nytri.
Flexing her fingers a little, Shiro activated Fae Illusions and changed their faces.
"Come on mum, you know it's going to be annoying to eat with the mask on." Lisandra 'persuaded' even though she knew that Shiro had already activated her Fae Illusions.
". . .Fine." Shiro nodded.
Reaching out for her mask, she unclipped it and set it down on the able. Doing the same with her mask, Lisandra smiled softly and started to eat.
"A perfect girl next door face Yeah, that's definitely a Grade S Waifu." Ryota nodded with appreciation.
Burning the image into his mind, he started to eat while staring at her.
Blushing a little from the masochists stare, Shiro hid behind Lisandra and ate her meal quietly.
As the strange meal session finished, Shiro and Lisandra got into their own tents and slept first.
The night passed rather uneventfully. None of her traps were activated nor did the party members see any monsters approach them.
This continued for the next two days as they arrived in Ermis safely.
"I'll go return the mount to the adventurers guild. Since you two have my contact, you can give me a message when you're done sightseeing and we'll take the teleport shrine to Kyoto." Jonathan smiled.
"Alright. I'll probably just look around for some items and maybe a way to upgrade my sword." Shiro shrugged.
Since her sword, Ataraxia, has quite a low durability rating to compensate for the fact that it could never truly be destroyed, it was quite delicate in battles as the enemy could just shatter it with a decent punch to the side.
If this continues to happen, her sword may as well just be a mana pack at this point.
"Lisa, what are you planning to do?" Shiro asked as she turned to Lisandra.
"Me? Well I think I'll just follow you. There's not much that needs my attention after all." Lisandra replied.
"Alright. In that case then, after I finish my own shopping, we'll do some clothes shopping so that we can do some mother and daughter bonding." Shiro chuckled since she hadn't really taken Lisandra out for fun.
"Ah, you don't have to do that mum. It's fine." Lisandra replied quickly since she didn't want to trouble Shiro.
"Ay, you're gonna hurt my heart you know. My daughter doesn't even want to shop with me." Shiro acted as if she was in distress.
Lisandra rolled her eyes but was actually happy on the inside.
Messing around for a bit more, Shiro looked on the map and tried to see where the closest blacksmithing area was.
"Hmm I can't seem to find where the blacksmithing area is." Shiro frowned.
While she said this, a nearby dwarf heard what she said and couldn't help but laugh.
"Missy, you're new to this place aren't you?" He asked with a smile.
"Ah I am indeed sir. I was just wondering if I could upgrade my sword here and couldn't see where the blacksmiths are in this city." Shiro nodded.
"Haha, we're dwarfs, natural blacksmiths. Every street here is the blacksmith street so there's no need to put it on the map." The dwarf replied with a smile.
"Oh? Interesting. Then do you know the best and most trustworthy smith around here?"
"Tch, what's with that sentence. Every dwarf here is trustworthy as long as it is to do with our trade." The dwarf scoffed in disdain.
"So you're telling me, that even when drunk, you won't reveal a single piece of information in regards to the equipment that you have repaired."
"And if it's of the red grade?"
"Ye-. . . ."
". . . "
"You hesitated!!!" Shiro retorted.
"But it's a red grade! Who the f*ck would stay quiet about a red grade!!!" The dwarf retorted back.
"So do you have anyone who would actually stay quiet about a red grade item."
"I thin- wait, you have a red grade item?"
"No." Shiro replied instantly.
Narrowing his eyes, the dwarf thought for a moment before nodding.
"I do have 3 dwarfs in mind."
