Chapter 1 – Let’s quit!!

“…999, 1000.
Alright, today’s quota is done! And it’s not even noon yet, so I’m going to spend the afternoon doing research…”

I say as I check the bottles of distilled water I created with my rapid transmutation.

Distilled water is used to make various potions, but also to transmute magic creatures.
