Winter Hunting - Chapter 1
Duke Icanus’ winter hunt begins. This means that, if they enter the “Snowy Forest” that was banned during the hunting period, if they wanted to live then, they shouldn’t leave a single hair in that forest during the hunt.
It was said that in the eyes of the Duke that was caught in madness, they all look like prey. And there will always be an emergency in nearby towns during this period.
She used to hear these rumours.
–“You must never enter the forest.”
Ariste heard this many times today. She hurried down her steps, recalling the warnings they had given.
The northern winter was even colder and bitter. Full preparation was required to pass through this long and cold winter.
Since the Duke went on his winter hunt, she couldn’t even get close to the forest for a while. If you weren’t lucky, it was good to say goodbye to the world by being shot.
The Duke’s hunting forest was far from the common forest where hunters and villagers hunt, but sometimes hunters secretly go there.
Although it was private land, it was possible to hunt there because it was always neglected except in winter.
Of course, she never thought of entering the forest. But if she was a hunter who lacks prey, the story would be different. Nevertheless, since she only cared about medicinal herbs, she just had to wait for the winter hunt to be over. Then, she’ll be able to pick up any number of precious herbs that grow in that forest.
Ariste walked over the snow where her feet sank deeply. She held a basket in one hand, which contained precious herbs that only grew in the snow. It reduces pain and has anti-inflammatory properties.
It was very useful, even if she used this in practicing.
It was a herb that was not well-known to others because it was discovered by a herbalist whose father was a doctor, in trading.
‘I was lucky.’
Ariste smiled as she stroked the cloth-covered basket. If she made an ointment with this and sold it, it could last for a while. It was a very important item for hunters who had a lot of injuries.
She had to find herbs and make ointments in case of an emergency that she had to pay the village for food in the winter. It was her virtue since the village chief gave her special consideration.
Especially since the village of Vito, where she lives, is in the mountains.
