“Hans, you won’t have any problems withyouramount of mana! Do you think I made your training that easy? It’s the same for you, Snoc! Do you think someone who made a contract with a magicalbeast will die from a disease? I have never heard a contractor dyingforsuch a stupid reason. So throw your worries away and focus on working!”
Besides everything else, Hans and Snoc had great faith in Zich’sskills and training. Thus, theycastedtheir worries aside and began to help with the work around the camp. However, the fear of contracting a disease wasn’t the only struggle workers hadto deal within an epidemic.
“Ugh…!”Snoc groaned, seeing the corpses comingout of the village. Hans had a bit more experience than him, buthealso responded similarly.
“Hm, they didn’t die peacefully.”
Zich looked down at the corpses below him. There were severe rashes and pus all over their bodies. Their eyes, which were incapable of closing, were yellow, and all the hair on their head was gone.

‘This is quite serious.’
An epidemic was already a very serious matter, but looking at the state of the corpses, the epidemic looked worse than usual. Zich headed back to the village. As soon as he stepped inside, he heard all kinds of groans and screams across the area. Doctors and priests were shouting while soldiers were running. It almost felt as if he wason the front lines of a battlefield.
“Are you a bit better now?”
After throwing up for a while, Hans and Snoc seemed better and walked towards Zich like zombies.
“S-Sorry, sir. We couldn’t hold it in no matter wha
