The Beastkin city is very clean, without even a single piece of garbage on the streets.
The streets themselves are picturesque, and even the small decorations are intricate and impressive.
Occasionally, you can see people from the dwarf race.
I've heard they are expert craftsman, be it blacksmith work and even carpentry. They can make and/or fix anything.
The appearance of the dwarves seemed to be very different between men and women.
The men were a little shorter than humans, but still muscular and bulky, with a dark, masculine face and a face covered with abundant hair, as if it was a habit to keep such a large beard.
The women are even shorter, and many of them are slender, and their lovely appearance catches the eye.
I saw a father with his son walking down the street and for a moment thought they were brothers.
I heard that there is a nation of dwarves in the neighboring countries, so they must be visiting these parts.
"Master, I heard that the coffee shop over there is all the rage, let's go."
Kaede grabs my hand and puts it on her head for some reason.
Her face is very red.
"Are you okay?"
"I'm sorry... I just wanted you to pet me a little."
"No, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to treat you like that."
"It's okay, it's just that I've been feeling a little lonely."
I see. Kaede always feels happy when I pet her head. I've hardly done that lately, and I haven't given her the attention she deserves either.
She's meticulous and careful, but she's also very reserved. Even if she feels lonely, she will probably end up suppressing her moods and desires because of her character.
Frau, on the other hand, folded her arms and kept silent.
"Frau, have I told you how pretty you are yet?"
I patted her on the head and a smile broke out on her face.
After watching Frau so many times in these situations, I could tell exactly what she wanted.
Frau pressed her head against my hanr while flapping her wings and saying, "stroke me more and more."
Then she sniffed my finger several times and bit it sweetly.
"Why are you biting me?"
"It helps to relax me. I like the taste of my Lord."
She has a curious habit... What did she mean by liking my taste?
However, Kaede began looking at the situation with unusual eyes.
"Don't even come close, Kaede. You want to bite him too, don't you?"
"Um.... Just a little."
Kaede kept insisting, so I offered her my neck, and she shyly approached and nibbled it.
The nibbling was subtle, and at the same time I felt her tongue run across my neck.
I was transfixed as a lock of her hair touched my face.
"Sorry, I probably don't taste good."
Kaede's fluffy white tail wags wildly.
She bites me again and again, as if she wants to test me.
It's a strange feeling to be bitten on the neck by a beautiful woman. I'm afraid the next thing she wants to do will open a door I shouldn't open.
"Mahshter ~, Mahshter ~"
"Kaede, please relax. I'll let you bite me again anytime you want."
She pulled away and hid her face with her hands as she said; "I've shown you something embarrassing.", her face red.
"Well, um, Master is so delicious and wonderful!"
"I know what you mean, it tastes so good. I've been doing this for a while whenever my Lord is asleep. Once I start biting into him I can't stop."
I think someday these girls will eat me alive... Wait, what do you mean you've been doing this for a while?
Wait a minute, is that the reason I hear giggles at night while I'm asleep?
I looked down at my arm and saw that Panda was biting me too. I don't know what he's trying to do, but he looked unhappy.
Don't be influenced by those girls, Panda.
"It's time we started gathering information."
"Yeah, I'm a little worried about the girls, and the only information we have is about the Demon King Roswell who lives out west."
"We can't find him if we don't know where he lives. Anyway, we can't go on our way until we find a clue."
We sat on the terrace of the cafe and talked about our future plans.
I drank some freshly brewed coffee and put the cup on the table.
"Old man Yatsufusa says that Roswell is a very special kind of Demon King who rarely shows himself in public, and that he wasn't interested in ruling the world like Lisa and Rudra."
If it weren't for everything that's going on, I would have liked to keep exploring this country, but I can't be selfish when the girls are in grave danger.
According to Old man Yatsufusa, the "ancient demon kings" on this continent are demon kings that still exist from ancient times, and who wield immense power.
There is a pact between the ancient demon kings to keep each other in check so as not to interfere with the plans of the current one, thus maintaining a perfect balance of power.
In other words, they are very dangerous.
Even for him, a White Wolf God, old man Yatsufusa is wary of approaching these demons.
To be honest, I don't want to meet Roswell.
Ever since I came to this land, I was afraid to use my full power for fear of attracting attention. But after meeting Grandpa Yatsufusa, those thoughts vanished.
This place is crawling with monsters and individuals that even I can't defeat.
Anyway, Frau is right, it is essential to gather information.
"Isn't there a place where we can gather valuable information? It'll be very difficult to randomly canvass this big country."
"I wish there was something like an auction or a place where great people gather and swap stories that ordinary people can't hear."
That's the solution we need. It was an eye-opening idea that would never have occurred to me.
But do auctions even exist in this country?
"Sorry to keep you waiting, here are your pancakes."
"Wow, that looks delicious."
"It has a nice presentation."
A maid brings Frau her dessert.
This is the opportunity I need to get some intel.
"Excuse me, where can I find a place where they hold auctions?"
"In the black market in the royal capital. There are a few in this city, but since we're on the border, there aren't many rare items to buy."
So they have a black market too, huh?
Usually the prices are pretty reasonable in those places, and you can buy items pretty cheap if you know how to bargain.
"The black market in the royal capital is amazing. There are deep and wide underground ruins beneath the city, and the further you go down, the rarer and more difficult to obtain the goods are, so fans should limit themselves to the second floor."
"Thank you very much for this information."
I tipped the woman.
"Well, I think it's settled, let's go to the black market."
"Yes, we'll be able to kill two birds with one stone, plus see valuable and rare things. Maybe we'll find a treasure like Frau."
"Why do you refer to yourself that way?"
Frau had a slender body and a beautiful face. Well, in a way meeting Frau was a treasure.
I don't know if they sell slaves on the black market, but I'd rather not have a second Frau.
One fairy is more than enough.
"My lord, you don't think I'm a nuisance do you?"
Frau shoots me an angry glare.
Oh no. This fairy is reading my mind.
