The queen slides her elbow off the armrest.
The throne is about to fall and the knight rushes to hold it.
"It's only been three days."
"But the work is already done."
The queen looked at Poloa and Lynn.
"I saw it with my own eyes, nya."
"He's not lying, he did."
"In three days..."
The queen rose from her throne and approached me.
He takes my right hand and squeezes it with both hands.
"On behalf of all my people, thank you very much, hero."
I felt embarrassed and scratched my cheek with my left finger.
The queen, who is above the clouds for commoners, came to me and grabbed my hands.
It's a great honor, but it's something I'm not used to, and I'm very embarrassed.
When I looked at Kaede and Frau they smiled, they looked happy.
After all, does a slave really take pride in seeing his master become famous?
I've tried to keep a low profile, but if that's the case, I might as well be a little more active.
No, I can't. If they find out I'm level 301 or something, I'll be in a lot of trouble.
When I looked at the queen, I realized she was mumbling something.
"King of Armand, you are a cheating man. I can't believe you had such a good adventurer in your lands. If I had met him a year earlier, I could have given him a hero's title.
"Oh, I was just thinking out loud! Oh-ho-ho, I'm so sorry!"
The queen tapped my shoulder.
She may be a queen, but she has the attitude of the typical old lady in town who cares about you and makes jokes.
Oops, not a good time to think about these things.
He returns to his throne and opens his fan.
''Then let me give you your reward for fulfilling the request so well. Bring him here.''
A car was brought to the courtroom.
On top was a pile of white gold coins.
"There's 200 million there. And I'll give you your own private mansion in the royal capital of Grigit."
"Since I can't give you the title of hero, the best thing would be to give you a very comfortable mansion in this country, so you can come back here whenever you want, fufufu."
"No no, what I'm trying to say..."
"Huh? Are you going to turn down the Queen's generous offer? Hmm?"
Hee, his eyes are scary.
On his face is a smile, but his eyes say otherwise.
I reluctantly accepted the offer.
The queen's attention is captured by Frau.
"Oh look at that, it's a fairy!"
"Is there a problem with that?"
"Not at all, I've always wanted to meet one. I've admired them since I was a little girl, I never thought I'd see one here."
The queen was so excited she looked like a child.
Frau turned around with her face red with embarrassment.
"Isn't it too big?"
"It's not an optical illusion. This place is huge."
"How can anyone live in a place like this!"
The mansion had been prepared exclusively for us.
There was a fountain in front of the entrance, and a lush lawn grew in the garden.
The path from the gate to the mansion was well paved with stones.
The important building is also two stories high and wide.
This is much bigger than the house I once used to live in.
I am afraid just to make comparisons.
I wonder what the cost of this place will be.
Will the country take care of all the cats?
The queen said this place would be for us. But I can't afford it.
"Master, let's go inside."
Kaede wrapped her arms around me, and pulled me forward.
When I saw how happy she looked, I felt that nothing mattered to me anymore.
If my lovely slave is happy, that's fine with me.
Then there will be time to think about those details.
I took the key out of my pocket and opened the door.
Frau came in on top of Panda, and her eyes kept looking around the house.
"It doesn't seem like a bad place to live, but it's unnecessarily large. I'm sure I'll get lost in this place.
"Come on, Panta, let's look over there."
The two disappeared down the hall.
On second thought, staying in this place is convenient.
I just have to wait for Sain to come to this country.
To do this, he needed a place where he could spend a long period of time in comfort.
And I couldn't stay in Baron Scotchell's house forever either.
This reward is not so bad, I feel grateful with this.
"Master, there's a bathroom!"
Kaede runs back.
Wow, there's even a bathroom?
I've only been to one a couple of times, and they've been quite exhilarating, it feels great to wash in that place.
"Do you want me to wash your head again?"
"S-Stop treating me like a child!"
I don't have the courage to be alone with the current Kaede.
Unlike in those days, she now has the body of an adult woman.
"Oh no. I just missed my chance."
He lowered his fox ears.
Chance? What do you mean by that?
I bowed my head without understanding what was happening.
"Speaking of which, I'd better get to my room."
"Yes, so do I. I have a lot of things to unpack and you need to organize them."
Every time I pass through a town or city, I buy or keep souvenirs.
Bears carved out of wood, vases, etc. Things that have no other use than decoration.
The magic storage is convenient, but its capacity is limited, so I have to empty it from time to time.
Well, if there's a souvenir that looks good, I can display it at the mansion.
I do push-ups in my room. Completely naked.
I have wanted to try it for a long time.
I could never do it at the inn as it would be weird in front of my ex-friends.
This feeling of freedom is pleasant.
It is a relief to have a place like this to relax and have my privacy.
Should it be squats now?
Hmm, no, I'd better get on with the abs.
The door suddenly opened and I was seen naked.
Kaede saw me morosely, screamed and ran away.
Hey, close the door.
And knock on the door when you come in.
No, it's my fault for not passing the key to the door.
I heard a familiar voice from the hallway.
"Are you sure they're here?"
"That's what I heard at the palace."
"And seriously that guy is really strong?"
"Yes, I'm not exaggerating, if I had to guess, I'd say it's above level 100."
"Then it is indeed true that he defeated the dragon."
Those voices... The flame axe gang?
This is not good. This is a dangerous situation.
I have to close the door quickly.
I got up and ran to the entrance.
Orlos, the leader was in front of me.
He looked down and paused.
Then he let out an impressed, "Ho."
I closed the door.
"I think he's in an unfavorable situation, we'd better go down and wait a little bit."
"What was he doing?"
"Not much. But he's got a great sword."
I heard the footsteps walking away.
I'm not embarrassed to be seen naked, but there is a time for it.
This is an enormous psychological damage.
And Kaede saw me doing push-ups naked.
Someone calls for death.
"Master, you are a wonderful man in every way! I mean it!"
After that, I heard Kaede's footsteps walking away down the hallway.
