“I have a bad feeling about this.”
I couldn’t help muttering to myself as I held the reins in the driver’s seat. I looked up at the sky and saw that it was cloudy. It’s natural to feel depressed in this kind of weather, but that’s not all. I felt a chilly sensation in my neck and a minor numbness.
I can’t help but feel that my instincts as a merchant are telling me something. However, peddling is a job fraught with danger. I can’t just turn around and go back without any proof, though…… Today, I am entering the Forbidden Forest and carrying goods to the Elves village. It’s a regular monthly job, and it’s a client that enables me to stock up on rare medicines.
“I’ve stocked up on more food this time, I hope you like it.”
I think it’s safe to say that I have carefully selected a number of products myself, but you never know what life has in store for you. A businessman should never say the word “perfect”. This is a precious connection with the elves that other merchants envy, and I have no intention of giving it up because of my own mistakes.
“Mr. Doldold. I’ve been wondering for some time, how did you get so close to that elf?”
The strong man sitting next to me asked. He was the leader of the group of hunters I had hired. They are a group of four, skilled and polite among the hunters, who are generally fierce, making them the best choice for my guards.

Elves are a race famous for their dislike of humans. I once rescued an injured elf child a short distance away from this forest, treated his wounds and sent him back to the village, and we have been in contact ever since.
At first, they were wary of me and almost detained me, but after a sincere discussion, I managed to get them to understand me. However, they were very misanthropic and it took a few years to get over them.
Now they are really friendly, and perhaps as a result of their closed life, they seem to be interested in the culture and tools outside the forest, and they are willing to buy items that I cannot sell in other villages, which I am very grateful for.
“That’s strange. We should have been welcomed by now.”
“Normally the guarding elves would come out, but something might have happened…….You guys, be on the lookout.”
The leader next to me turned and called out to his companion who was relaxing on the covered cart, and a wizard woman with a hood pulled up tightly over her eyes appeared.
“Mr. Doldold, would you mind slowing down a bit?”
I pulled on the reins twice and told the horse to run slowly.
She raised her wand and chanted a spell, then stared at the direction of the path. After a while she suddenly lowered her wand and let out a small breath.
“I have searched for the light of life, but no elves or humanoid lights are nearby.”
The magic she just used is probably the “life sensing” magic. As I recall, it is said that a pers
