He waked up early when the sun still hasn't yet risen. He sat on his bed and then rubbed his eyes. He lights his candle and then went to the bathroom. He opened the bathroom door then he puts the candle beside the mirror. He twisted the faucet and filled the bathtub with water. He removes his clothes then dips his body on the water. He stayed there for a minute and scrubbed his back with a towel. After several minutes, he finished washing. He washed his clothes, then hangs it. He dressed shorts and a t-shirt, normal clothes fit for a n.o.body like him. He opened the door to exit his room, then he went downstairs.

He checked out from the inn and saw several persons currently eating their breakfast.

"Breakfast, Sir?", the girl attendant offered.

"Yes, please!", Kael replied to her.

Kael grabs his breakfast with bread and b.u.t.ter and steak. He sits in the corner of the eating place. Kael ate his bread and b.u.t.ter first, then the steak. He drank water and then headed outside.

He walks on the silent street and only a few people can be counted by his fingers were seen. He saw that the sun just began to shine. The cold and dark streets were slowly lit by its rays. Kael saw the lampposts on the streets slowly lose their brightness and the sun's rays swap it's light.

Kael arrived in the blacksmith shop and he heard the clanking sounds of the hammering of metal of blacksmith. He entered the shop and saw fewer items from before. No one was there to cater to the customers so Kael waited for a minute. Time pa.s.sed by and Kael is getting impatient. He still heard some clanking sound and then he called the blacksmith.

"h.e.l.lo. Somebody there? Your customer is waiting.", he said loudly.

Kael called then the clanking sound stopped. The blacksmith arrived and then it is obvious that he wiped his sweat hurriedly.

"Pardon my tardiness. I'm currently working because my quota was doubled. The demand for my works was quite high due to its enchantments and its low price.", he said as he wipe his sweat.

"It's okay, so how's it?", Kael asked.

"I'm pretty slow on making armors. If only I have an a.s.sistant.", he said to Kael.

"Well, I'm a blacksmith too!", Kael said to him.

"What? How many knowledge do you have?!", Kjelg blurted out.

"I'm a master blacksmith so we will be making great progress", Kael said to him.

"Well, let's start! We have work to do.", Kjelg said.

They went to the blacksmith shop located behind his store. They pa.s.sed by many unfinished works and Kael was amazed. He never saw a room full of armors and weapons. He touched one helmet and then put it back.

"That's still going to be repaired. Let's go outside.", Kjelg said to Kael.

"Okay.", Kael said to him.

They arrived at the shop and the heat is intense. Kael felt the heat of the shop.

The armors were piled in the wall with a dummy to hold it. The weapons are neatly arranged. They were piled in their kind. Kjelg grabbed the leather ap.r.o.n and then grabbed the other one to Kael.

They started their weapon and armor making. Kael knows what to do and he obeys Kjelg's instructions.

Tang! Tang! Tang!

Kael smashed the hot metal to remove its impurities. He folds it then smashed again. He repeated the process and they made great progress. They created seven weapons and three sets of full plated armor.
