Chapter 25: The smell of depopulation board from the fairy board
I’ll try putting up the pictures for the time being.
By the way I have mosaic both their faces to hide them. There wasn’t any particular deep meaning behind it…..
I wonder why. Could I be feeling possessive? Is this something like 「I don’t want my elves do be seen by any trivial guys but I want to boast about them at the same time」?
Well, apart from playing with the bulletin board like this, there is no great meaning in it. Once the images became the main subject I wonder if it would be possible for something of this degree to happen, 「Isn’t this really well-made? This is a CG. Once I’m done with my CG compilation, do buy them!」
I’ll be keeping a collection of elves photos anyway! For myself!
The thread’s movement after that do interest me as well but it’s a waste of time to wait for them to be written since I’ll need to get my things done quickly.
I got ready and went down to the first floor. The other world’s road in the evening or rather at night would be really dangerous so I need to return to the inn before it gets dark. The risk of an encounter in a role playing game usually increase at that time.
“I’ll be going out. I’m going to be away for tonight too.” I told my mother who was eating oranges under the kotatsu, straight out.
“Wait hold it right there, Jirou. You’ve only been playing around recently. When are you planning to get a job? It’s been 2 years already but you’ve only been playing with that auction or something… Being a NEET forever wouldn’t be able to support the house generally and we’re not really rich to begin with. Hurry up and get a job soon, otherwise leave the house!” (Jirou’s mother)
(Rinkage: Since everyone’s calling him by that, I’ll stick to that from now on too)
Even if you say so, it doesn’t seem likely for me to get a job anytime soon.
Much less, as a worthless high school graduate NEET like me….!
In addition, looking for a job now is even more of a distant matter for my present condition. Rather than that, I should say that my intention of getting a job was already 0 since a long time ago.
“Then I’ll be leaving the house in near future. I managed to find quite a stable business recently so if it goes well, it will be possible for me to live on with that…..It might take slightly more time but I will be watching over it in the long run.” [Jirou]
“In the long run huh…..Didn’t you say the same thing 6 months ago?” [Jirou’s mother]
I’m serious this time!
Before she pursues it any further I quickly grabbed the car keys and went outside.
In truth…..living alone might be good too but it might be harsh if I do not have a steady income first to some extent. I want a car too.
Riding in the house’s K-car, I drove to the post office for now.
I shipped out the items and withdraw some money from the ATM.
I have spent quite a lot of money in the match between Jephthah this time. I want to start getting my business on track as soon as I can.
Thus, after going shopping for a variety of things, I reached home roughly around 14:00.
I have thought of stopping by Shello-san’s house initially but I had taken a considerably long time already. I should just confirm the board’s conversation and return to the inn as quickly as possible. It would be bad if I didn’t go back before dark.
Seriously, if I don’t do something about the other world’s transportation soon, it would be really inconvenient…….
When I confirmed the board’s conversation, well, the conversation flow was roughly similar to what I had expected.
I should try following up to a certain extent.
Once I finished replying, I noticed that I’m almost running out of time.
I’ll continue this another time. At any rate I should go back now.
It’s a depopulated board anyway so there wouldn’t be much replies.
By the time I reached Erishe city, the sun has starting to set.
I wonder if those guys are staying at the inn obediently. Marina aside, I am anxious about Diana…..
Erishe’s 50th anniversary festival is still going on.
Come to think of it, I was planning to go around the festival once I obtained the slave. The three of us could probably look the festival around tomorrow…. I might be able to get some ideas for my business too….
I am currently carrying a backpack on my back and holding onto other bags with both hands. These goods were brought over from the other side but due to my greed I seemed to have brought way too many different items now. Considering the distance from the house to the inn, I should have been more prudent but….I had done it unconsciously.
Walking for 120 minutes is seriously tiring….I want to rest at the inn soon as I can.
The inn is located on the central square near the main street. The hustle and bustle outside could be easily heard so it was slightly noisy to me.
Once the festival is over, the main road would still be there. However the noises from the main road might not reach a really bothersome degree.
Upon reaching the inn I left my luggage in the room and went to Diana Marina’s room. Now, were the both of them able to stay in the room obediently?
“Diana, Marina, are you in—?” [Jirou]
I called out as I knocked. Should I treat them more like a slave at a time like this and order them out without question?
Well, I have already planned to go at my own pace with regards to my relationship with the slaves anyway.
“Welcome back, goshujin-sama. A guest has dropped by just now.” [Diana]
“Ara, good afternoon. Jirou-san.”
Hiyaaa~! Isn’t that Priestess-chan!
Her usual priestess clothing is nice but the town girl attire suits her very well too. Her long blonde hair that was braided makes her look really cute.
Did she come to see me? As I thought priestess-chan and I are connected by an invisible thread…….
“Good afternoon Priestess-sama. What’s going on today? Do you need anything from me?” [Jirou]
“Yes. Ah but I am not here for Jirou-san though. Diana-san here has something that she wants to hear from me so I’ve come here after speaking to her using spirit transmission. It’s rare to have elves who can use spirit transmission nowadays so I was surprised.” [Priestess-chan]
Something that she wants to hear?
And what is a spirit transmission? Something like a telephone?? The spirits are seriously too omnipotent.
“There is something that I want to hear so I used the spirit to call her over. I’m not too familiar with the geographical features of this area so I thought it would be faster to ask a local priestess.” [Diana]
Yes it came–.
I understand that she wouldn’t come see me without any particular reason!
Of course I understand it! I just felt like saying it in a destiny-like way!
“Is there anything that you need to hear from Priestess-sama?” [Jirou]
“It’s about 『that day』.” [Diana]
Ah yes yes. It’s that day isn’t it,
That day is an important thing isn’t it. As expected it is necessary to get the advice from someone of the same sex.
Your master is ready to help too whenever you like!
“I see. Well I have bought a cake so you can take your time with the conversation while having tea. Marina, is Marina here?” [Jirou]
“Nn~, munyamunya, I can’t eat anymore~” [Marina]
“Marina has been sleeping since after lunch. I have heard it before that sleeping right after eating might turn someone into cow but it appears to be true…..” [Diana]
This person has been ingrained with too much freedom.
Isn’t it amazing to be in a position to receive three meals and a nap daily! If that’s the case I want to be a slave too!
Even though it was enjoyable looking at her sleeping face and her sleeping posture, I should wake her up for the time being.
“Oi, Marina get up! I’ve bought cake.” [Jirou]
“Nn~? Waa~, aa, my liege, welcome back. Marina can still eat.” [Marina]
“Good morning. I have Marina’s portion here too. Once you are awake go make the tea for the total number of people here.” [Jirou]
“Goshujin-sama is lenient to Marina…..” [Diana]
The other world and Japan has roughly the same length of time in a day and similar daylight hours but the climate is slightly different. This place is warmer than Japan.
It’s quite cold now in Japan since it’s December.
In addition, today is the 24th.
That’s right, it’s Christmas Eve.
Naturally I don’t have any engagement during Christmas Eve but since I have people to spend it with this year, I specifically bought and brought the whole cake here…..
I’m sorry. I was in quite high spirit myself.
Moreover, Priestess-chan has also joined in. Including a high elf and dark elf, the three different elves have gathered here. I wouldn’t be a man if this doesn’t put me in high spirit!
“Today is a slightly special day back in my hometown. There is a custom to celebrate it by eating cake. That’s why, let’s eat this together. Please do join in too, Priestess-sama.” [Jirou]
(Rinkage: I think he has forgotten that he was supposed to have a ‘memory loss’ )
I distributed the cake with my personal knife. For safety, I bought chocolate cake, or to be more precise Buche de Noel. Although I wasn’t sure if this might suit the other world’s taste. That reminds me, I have not seen this kind of cake here before.
Marina served the tea, handed out the cake and sat herself at the table.
Apparently everyone hasn’t seen this type of cake before. I wonder what kind of reaction will they be giving after eating.
Marina is about to put the cake in her mouth. Diana is watching the situation. Priestess-chan is drinking tea.
This asshole Diana. She was waiting for Marina to taste the food first before trying it herself.
“!? A-a-a my liege. What is this? What is this–? It’s sweet. It’s extremely sweet!” [Marina]
The pupils in her purple eyes became perfectly round as if she was in ecstasy while she opened her mouth wide and ate the cake heartily.
(Rinkage: Something like this -> image )
On looking at Marina’s reaction, Diana and Priestess-chan finally put the cake in their mouths as well.
“”Varasudanya””3 [Diana & Priestess-chan]
“It’s sweet. It’s sweet. Goshujin-sama is really sweet. I have never expected you to let your slaves eat something as good as this. My cheeks are f – a – l – l – i – n – g o – f – f –” [Diana]
(Rinkage: Comes from Japanese onomatopoeia: So delicious your cheeks will fall off)
“Is this a cake from Jirou-san’s hometown? It’s my first time eating a cake as delicious as this…… I was supposed to have lived a long life but the world is certainly huge…..” [Priestess-chan]
I’m glad it’s popular among them.
Could it be that, there are no natural style cakes like this over here?
Since I have “cook” as my vocation too, I might be able to make a profit if I start selling cakes here.
I am not sure how effective it will be but it might be interesting to run a stall during the time of the festival.
However, I wonder how many years has it been since I last eaten a cake and done something Christmas-like like today. If I were to eat chicken for dinner later on then spend the night with the elves in bed at night, it would be so perfect, it might bring tears to my eyes!
But well before that, I should listen to what the day is about.
