“This is where the eastern mansion is planned.”
After joining with Yukari in Leñador, she guided us as we visited the planned site for 『Second’s State』, the super luxurious residential area located in the outskirts of the Kingdom’s Capital.
What’s in front of me is a mansion as I envisioned. A lawn garden huge enough to play soccer in it, a stupidly big pool with a wooden deck, a balcony with a panoramic view, palm trees all around, a two-storey huge mansion with lots of big windows, high ceilings and fairly well illuminated by natural light, a kitchen styled like a fancy bar, a living room large enough to double as an indoors tennis court; this is totally like a five star hotel.
“WH-WHAT THE HECK IS THIS……!? “
Silvia’s incredibly loud voice sounded like someone at their death throes as she screamed in surprise.
“Will we stay here!? “
Unable to stay put, Eko was excitedly running all over the place, to the first floor, to the second floor, all across the garden and around the pool.
“……This is just one ninth of it.”
Yukari uttered in a state of shock. That’s exactly right. This is just one out of nine mansions, the『Mansion of the East』. I wonder what they would think of me. It’s completely an overkill. However, I’ll never say it out loud……
“W-Well, if you get bored we can move to another mansion. No, wait, we can just use them according to the season. This one will be for summer use! “
“It will cost money to maintain it even when it’s not in use, Master.”
“That’s alright, I can make as much money as I want.”
Yukari sent me a questioning look.
“Do you want to see the other places?”
Saying so, I ran away from her glare and walked towards the south.
After about fifteen minutes of walking, I finally saw the other mansion. This was a large western-style mansion made out of brick. No, it might be more proper to call this a castle rather than a mansion. Its nickname, 『Mansion of the Southeast』, this will be the servants’ house. Still, it will take them 15 minutes of walking to get to the nearest place from here…… nah, let’s not think about it.
“Hmm? Are you going to choose from this one and the previous one? “
She said while her gaze admired the mansion in front of her. But as you’d expect from Silvia, it seems she has yet to understand. I really like this place.
“This is also my house.”
“This one and the one before too, all in all there are nine of them, all of them are my houses.”
There’s something quite moving about seeing a platinum blonde beauty having her mouth agape this much in surprise.
“By the way, this is the house where the servants will live.”
Ahh, she froze again.
After bringing Silvia back to her senses, we looked around the mansion. Its interior is wooden, giving it quite the elegant atmosphere. It’s a somewhat antique feeling. It has more rooms than the East one, and probably quite a lot of servants will be living here. Especially, the dining room and the kitchen are large. Seems like it’s possible to be able to cook a large number of meals at the same time.
“Please, leave the training of the servants to me.”
After leaving the southeast mansion, Yukari said so. I wonder if she isn’t pushing herself too hard……
“Is that okay? “
“By all means, please let me take care of this.”
Yukari’s determination was firm. Or rather, it feels like she’s just stubborn. I’m a bit scared to refuse, so I’ll just leave it to her.
“I-I see. Please take care of it. But don’t overdo it.”
“Thank you very much, Master.”
Yukari’s ears trembled a little, yet her face showed no expression, but I could tell she was happy.
Afterwards, we visited all nine of the mansions. Seven out of the nine of them need to be rebuilt or renovated. The eastern and southeastern ones were the only ones that will be used as they are.
And thus, the purchase was completed. Construction began the very same day. Things have been moving on track all thanks to Yukari.
The grand total was 21.6 billion CL. I feel this is just a small price to pay for all of this.
“Second-dono! I was told we could move to the eastern mansion tonight! I’m really looking forward to it! “
Silvia was in high spirits.
Well, I could understand her feelings very well. I’ve always been quite uninvolved with real life. The reason was, because Mobius was there, and that was enough for me. Well, socially speaking, I was a ‘failure’.
However, now that this world has become my reality, my feelings about getting a mansion that could be called a proof of me being a ‘social success’ were getting bigger and bigger.
Eko’s tension was through the roof, and she was acting a bit strange. Her voice sounded a bit parched too.
“We’ll have a barbecue today! “
Well, even I was in the midst of an ecstatic feeling. While still walking to the east, I started to take out shrimp and meat from my inventory, and stab it with a stick. Why am I like this?
“I will help you.”
Yukari said so, while also laughing with a “Fufufu”. What a rare sight.
And thus, our strangely excited four-person group had a barbeque in the wooden deck of the mansion all night.
It goes without saying that nobody was able to get up the next day without drinking a potion due to the terrible hangover.
Thank you for reading.
