When I went down to the second floor, the living room and dining room were crowded.
In the dining room was Frau, Nei and Pione lined up at the plates, and in the living room, Luna and Lynn sat on the couch.
When I went to the kitchen, Kaede, Soara and Marianne were cooking.
"Master, it's time for you to sit down, it's time to eat."
I thought it was a big house, but with all the girls here, it feels small.
And even more so considering that I am surrounded by young and beautiful women, it is a strange feeling.
I don't know where to stand and I'm nervous.
Panda gently reached over and touched my fingers a little.
Apparently, he wants me to pet him.
When I petted him, Panda showed signs of happiness.
I have not been able to play with him at all in the last few days.
He must have felt very lonely.
"Do you want me to keep doing it?"
When I stopped my hand, he asked for more and more and even bit my hand.
He's still soft and cushion-like, and feels good to the touch.
Alusha has just entered the house.
He went into the dining room and took a seat.
"Where did you go?"
"I went for a walk. I wanted to see what the human village is like."
"By the way, is this your first time out of your village? This is a small, ordinary town, so there's nothing special about it."
"Well, it didn't seem to be much different from the one in my village."
Alusha continues to speak; "But."
"I would be lying if I said this is not a special place. I feel that there is a great and powerful spirit in this land, and that the reason it is so rich in nature and so peaceful is because it protects us."
"Spirits? Are they here right now?"
"I'm afraid I can't see them. But I'm sure there are many such spirits in your village."
I decided to use my dragon eyes.
Countless translucent birds, fish, lizards and rats appeared around me.
They noticed my gaze and scattered out of the room.
What I just saw are spirits inhabiting the village.
I didn't know I was surrounded by so many spirits.
"A land guarded by spirits brings many blessings. It is said that a spirit of high rank can even protect the people who live there. I recognize just how wonderful the land where you were born and raised in is, Toru-Dono."
"Hey, I guess that's why the crops grow faster."
Nei, who brought a plate, joins the conversation.
As I recall, this town certainly yields crops quickly.
There have been few losses in crops and production has remained stable.
Nei sat in a chair and propped her head up on both her hands
"This place is believed to be ruled by a powerful earth spirit. If there's a magical vein nearby, it's almost certainly huge."
"It's amazing that Alusha knows so much about us. I wish I was like one of you, smart, young and handsome."
"I'm the one who's jealous. I wish I was childhood friends with Toru-Dono, although having so many rivals makes everything not so rosy."
"I totally agree with that. I never imagined that so many women would appear and Toru would be so popular, I had enough with Kaede and Frau, but I don't think I'll have a chance anymore."
Nei and Alusha let out a sigh together.
Apparently, they get along well.
Although they have different personalities, I think they understand each other perfectly.
Just then Kaede arrived.
"Well, it's time for us all to start eating."
"I've been waiting to hear that!"
"Frau, please wait until everyone is seated."
"I know, I just wanted to take a bite!"
Frau runs away from Alusha.
That doesn't look like a bite.
In fact, every time I saw Frau, her mouth moved strangely.
I think she just couldn't take it.
Today we decided to help Nei in the field.
Farming after a long time is not so bad
"Hey, Toru, when you're done with that, come over here."
"I'm still not used to this."
"Don't complain. Everyone is doing the best they can."
"That's right. Work quietly."
We followed Nei's instructions and moved on to the next task.
This is the field that Nei's family owns.
It has the largest area in town.
And it wasn't just Nei and I, but also Marianne, Luna and Pione.
"It's good to touch the earth once in a while. It's a good way to relax the body."
"Exactly. It's nice to see the vegetables ripen."
"Yes, it might be a good idea to grow some vegetables when I get back to the mansion."
"I agree. Maybe Luna should ask her father to give her part of the garden."
"Speak for yourselves. I'm not good at planting or raising animals, I doubt I can handle this."
There were three beautiful women in overalls kneeling digging in the ground.
One was royalty and two were nobility. No one would imagine that these girls behind those clothes are extremely beautiful and classy.
As for me, I am grateful for keeping busy and not torturing myself with unnecessary thoughts.
I finally got my energy back.
I don't want to spend the whole day asleep again.
A white, round object suddenly hits my face.
Then, a long thing like a snake encircled my body.
"So it 's you guys."
It was Panda and Rosuke
I let them play outside, but they got bored and came back.
I even left Sharkboy in a pond not far from here.
A sign suddenly appears in my field of vision.
《Notice: Skill savings have been repaired》.
It seems that all my saving abilities have finally been repaired.
When will it break next?
"Come over here, it's time to harvest these."
Nei called us to a fruit field.
There, bright red tomatoes and dark green cucumbers hung lushly in the air.
"They look delicious."
"Well, our vegetables are the best in town. Let's gather them quickly, it's almost time to eat."
With baskets in hand, we all rushed to pick the vegetables.
The tomatoes we plucked were so bright you could reflect the light off of them.
When I bit into one, it was very juicy and had a strong sweetness to it.
"Hey, don't eat them!"
Nei saw me.
"You got me."
"Not just me, but them too."
When I looked next to me, I saw Pione and Luna biting into a tomato each as well.
So it was my fault?
It cannot be avoided.
The tomatoes here looked incredibly delicious.
"Hey, I brought lunch. But... What are you eating? And why don't you give Frau?".
Frau flew to us and stole a tomato from Pione.
"Master, I brought you lunch."
Kaede waved at me from afar.
Behind her were the other girls who helped her cook.
Now I can finally take a break.
Well, the job was almost done, but when it comes to Nei, she gets really obsessed with the work.
She's kind of like a demon of agriculture. You can't get away from her easily.
"Kaede-San, you are a very good cook."
"It's all thanks to Urara-San who taught me. Although I still have a lot to learn."
Soara compliments Kaede on her cooking skills.
Today she prepared a sandwich for lunch, but as is common with Kaede's meals, it doesn't look good.
But contrary to its appearance, its taste is out of this world.
As she ate, Lynn said; "its taste doesn't match its appearance."
Speaking of which, I haven't seen Marianne's maid, I wonder where she is?
She used to always be by her side.
I decided to ask Marianne about it.
"Urara is on maternity leave."
"Wait, she's married?"
"Yes. Didn't I tell you?"
I never heard that. You never told me that.
So that's why I hadn't seen her when Marianne went to Grayfield.
I will give Marianne a congratulatory gift for Urara later.
"By the way, how long are you guys going to be here?"
"A week maybe, I think they're all thinking of doing the same thing."
Well, they can't stay away from home for too long, now can they?
I can't thank you all enough for coming all this way for me.
How can I thank you?
Now I understand Count Roanne that day when I got rid of the demons in his city. It is difficult to reward someone who has done a splendid job for you.
I can think of no way to express my gratitude.
"Girls, I want to thank you for coming all this way for me. I feel so grateful that my words are not enough to express how I feel."
I bowed to them once again.
Each of them shared glances, and for some reason they began to laugh.
"We are here to return the favor for all the things you have done. Besides, we are provisional members of the Manyu Brigade. It's only natural for us to come to the leader's aid."
"When did this happen?"
"Toru, you've been unconsciously dragging Luna and the others into the party all this time. All the people here drew their strength and courage from you. You've become very important to us."
"Of all of us, though, there's someone here who hasn't received help from Toru."
"Now that you mention it, I've been thinking the same thing...Lynn, Why are you here?"
Lynn's cheeks turn pink and she sheepishly says: "There was something I wanted to check out!"
That sound... There it is again...
Paki Paki Paki Paki
The sound of breaking glass resonates in me.
Several posters were displayed in the field of view.
