Chapter 089: Pi-chan's Dietary Situation
A few hours later, Pi-chan lays down in the entrance hall to sleep with a swollen stomach.
I went out to request an adventurer to assist with the cleaning. For the time being, we were able to clean up the mansion to a reasonable degree. The adventurer left exhausted after cleaning rat droppings all day. There’s no furniture, so I laid out a blanket next to Pi-chan and went to sleep.
The next day, I brought some proper bedding to the mansion. I didn’t have more than a backpack’s worth of luggage, so I didn’t procure a chest of drawers.
Since buying the mansion, I got a reprieve from catching Pi-chan’s meals. The house is an all-you-can-eat buffet for my snake. Pi-chan goes from room to room and eats up the rats. He keeps getting bigger and bigger, good job.
Two months later, there were no more rats in the mansion. It seems they have been annihilated. I consulted some people and they said that snakes could survive without eating for several months, so I decided to take Pi-chan out to the nearby forest once a month to let him feed.
Later, when I brought Pi-chan to the forest…
“Time to eat” Pat
After I said that, Pi-chan disappears into the grass without a sound. After a few minutes, I heard a scream from a creature. I hear more screams every few minutes for about an hour, then Pi-chan reappears with a swollen belly.
I lift up Pi-chan’s head and comment “Heavy!”, then we returned to the mansion.
