mental cloudiness), cardiac arrest.

Prognostic Symptoms:?Numbness or paralysis may remain.

Infection Method:?Oral Infection

Note:?Weak to heat and lack of moisture. A special medicine exists for this disease.

So there really was a virus! I couldnt confirm yesterday as Id already cleaned everything by the time Ive thought of it, but it wouldve been great if I was able to check beforehand. That way there wouldnt have been any room for doubt. Wait a moment, theres a medicine for it!?

The moment I learned the name of the disease, the corresponding medicine and its concoction method appeared in my head as if I were merely remembering something I already knew. Looks like its included in the knowledge Gayn and the others gave me. I should share this information with the others too.

“Guys, can you hear me?” [Ryouma]

“Whats up, nyaa?” [Miya]

After cleaning myself and the surrounding area in front of the door, I opened the door a little and called out. Miya-san immediately noticed me.

“I thought Id get some info first before starting, so I used Identify, and as it turns out, the disease is called Idake. Apparently, theres also a medicine for it. I came back to pass that info.” [Ryouma]

“Really, nyaa!?” [Miya]

“Yes, theres no doubt about it. The medicine has a couple of expensive ingredients, so it might be too late already, but can you still tell the guild master about it?” [Ryouma]

“Ill inform him now. If we tell him the name of the disease and the fact that theres a medicine for it, the old man will surely buy enough to cover us even if its expensive. I dont know how long hell need, though, so we should get the news to him ASAP.” [Jeff]

“Wait, tell him the concoction method too. That way he can have someone concoct it immediately.” [Ryouma]

“You know the concoction method too!?” [Jeff]

“Yeah, I recognize the medicine back when my grandma was teaching me.” [Ryouma]

“That is most reassuring. Speak and this one shall write it down.” [Asagi]

As Asagi-san pulled out some writing tools, I immediately told him the formula and concoction method of the medicine. He didnt understand what the medical jargon meant, but he still managed to write everything down.

Come to think of it, I havent used a brush in forever. Ive been using nothing but feathered pens since coming here, but then again… Its not like we used them a lot in the previous world either. At most, brushes were only used to write a New Years card.

“Done. Will this do?” [Asagi]

After confirming that the written information was accurate, Jeff-san took the note and ran. I myself went back to the latrine pits.

Now that thats done with, I dont have business left with the filth, so its time to wipe them out. Slimes, eat them all!

At my behest, the slimes by my feet inflated like a balloon, filling the staircase to the latrine pits with their body.

Their splitting yesterday resulted in their numbers going past 1,000. Because of that they didnt become a huge scavenger slime after merging but a king scavenger slime. Its a lot bigger compared to the huge scavenger slime.

Also, it may be called king, but its still possible to grow into an even bigger version so long as their numbers increase. I dont know far they can go, but the skills of the king scavenger slime are as follows:

King Scavenger Slime x1


Disease Resist Lv7

Poison Resist Lv7

Lead Belly Lv8

Cleaning Lv8

Deodorize Lv8

Deodorizing Liquid Lv5

Stench Lv7

Produce Fertilizer Lv6

Physical Attack Resist Lv3

Enlarge Lv4

Shrink Lv6

Jump Lv3

Overeat Lv1

The king scavenger slime possessed the Overeat skill in place of Digestion and Absorption. When I tried using it, the king scavenger slime used the Enlarge skill to make itself big enough to reach the ceiling of the latrine pit, then it consumed the surrounding filth with a speed several times faster than before.

Moreover, because the slime was now big enough to reach the ceiling, it could clean even places it couldnt before. Later on I should be able to split the slimes into two king slimes to cover both sides of the latrine pit, while having a couple of scavenger slimes to deal with the middle.

With my mind made up, I ordered the slimes to deal with the filth, then I worked on the ceiling and the walls myself.

Doubling on the slime numbers really was a big help as expected.

I know were working without rest, but still… We finished a full 2 hours faster than yesterday. Thats something.

After successfully cleaning this latrine pit, I cleaned my clothes and belongings and went outside just like yesterday.

When I did…

“Oh, did something happen again?” [Jeff]

“Oh, Im done here. So Id like for you to run your checks, so we can proceed to the next one.” [Ryouma]

“Already, nyaa!?” {Miya]

“Didnt you need a day to clean a latrine pit?” [Jeff]

Huh? …Ah! I only cleaned one latrine pit yesterday. They were probably told that, so as a result, they think I need a full day to clean one latrine pit.

“It looks like theres a misunderstanding. Actually, the scavenger slimes did their splitting yesterday, so I had to form a contract with the new ones. I actually only needed 5 hours to clean the latrine pit yesterday. But its even shorter now as the slimes have doubled their numbers.” [Ryouma]

“Doubled? Wouldnt that just give you two slimes? How could two slimes cl— erm, eat that much?” [Jeff]

Ah, they dont know about the slimes merging to form the big variations.

“This slimes is usually in small form, but its actually a king scavenger slime, an advanced variant. Have you heard of the big slime?” [Ryouma]

“Yeah, its a giant slime.” [Jeff]

“Slime variants of the big class are actually a colony of many slimes of the same type. So while it may look like just one slime on the outside, what youre seeing is actually an entire colony of slimes.” [Ryouma]

As I said that, I ordered the scavenger slimes to split 20 times.

“Unyaa!?” [Miya]

“Woah… Seriously?” [Jeff]

“This is…” [Asagi]

“From what Ive heard in the past few days, the slime is rarely researched, so the only ones who know about this are me and my acquaintances. Ive always been researching slimes, so I tend to forget that its not common sense. My apologies.” [Ryouma]

“Nah, so long as you can do your job, its fine. By the way, how many scavenger slimes are in that thing?” [Jeff]

“1464.” [Ryouma]

“1,000!? *COUGH Excuse me… No wonder you can work so fast.” [Jeff]

“Please consider the information regarding the slimes confidential too.” [Ryouma]

After that they ran their checks, and when they were sure everything was clear, we went to the next latrine pit, and then the next… And so on and so forth.

Tl Note:?First regular chapter of the week. Next chapter on Wed, as I need to translate KmF and GK tomorrow.

I was a bit confused with latrine pits, as I had no idea how they functioned – I dont remember the story anymore, its been years… – but as it turns out, theres only one latrine pit per area that they go to. So just clearing that up since I used the plural, latrine pits, every time Ryouma entered one. I was under the impression there was only one entrance to access all the latrine pits, but looks like thats not the case.

Oh, and it looks like the stats for last time was for the scavenger slimes. One reader pointed that out actually, so kudos to him/her.
