71 Relaxation Journey, First Day
“Second-dono. Is it really alright to leave the capital for three days at these uncertain times? “
As we were on our way to the commercial city Leñador, Silvia asked me while making a face of unease.
Certainly, I also had some anxiety about leaving the capital. I can’t help but to think that the life of Besaid might be targeted while I’m gone, or that the Prime Minister might set something up. But……
“According to Windfield, it’d be like ‘Sugatayaki’.”
Eko tilted her head.
“It’s a cruel state in which the whole body is grilled after removing all fangs and hooks. As time passes, the heat increases, and so does the suffering. And it has no means to attack back.”
“In other words, does Windfield want them to keep getting impatient while the heat escalates and then they recklessly make their move?”
“That might be. Well, that’s why we don’t have to worry about it, and just take it easy.”
“Has Miss strategist seen through everything? She’s amazing.”
Eko, not really grasping the concept asked, “Is it yummy? “, to which I immediately replied, “You wouldn’t like it” while rolling my eyes back. If one were to look at this exchange, it would look like a stupid question, but I’m happy because Eko is simple like this.
……And then, a whole day later. I somehow killed time and we finished getting to Leñador.
Then, after our arrival. All three of us, plus the First Royal Court Magician Division decided to check-in at an inn first. It was a high-class, large inn that you wouldn’t think it possible to get reservations made with just three days in advance, but it was reserved for our private use by using the names of the Second Prince and Earl Lumberjack.
“Why this place, this inn is……”
Sherry-chan asked this while looking up at the inn, in which one could tell it was expensive just by looking at it.
“An introduction from the Earl. I’m sure it’s a nice place, right? “
“Haa. So? What point are you trying to make by showing us the inn in which you’ll be staying? Is it some sort of snide remark? “
“Huh? You guys are staying here too. “
After a moment of silence, not really comprehending the situation, Sherry-chan then opened her eyes wide and came close.
“D-did you reserve rooms for 200 people in here! ? “
“Not at all, it’s all reserved.”
“All reser……! “
She repeated, turning sideways, being lost for words.
The leader Zephyr, after listening to our exchange, approached us rapidly.
“K-Kid! We don’t have the budget for something like this! Do you know how much it will cost!? “
“Didn’t I tell you earlier to leave all the accommodation arrangements to me?”
“But nobody would expect something like this!! “
Ahh, I made him angry.
“Second-dono. It’s bad.”
Silvia came and whispered in my ear. I knew right away what she was trying to say even before speaking.
After seeing the surprised Sherry-chan and the angry Captain, the members that were waiting in the back suddenly felt dejected. Well, that’s to be expected. After traveling the whole day, they finally thought they would be able to rest. They would surely find this unpleasant. Like this, the morale tomorrow morning, when they go to the Ngultrum Dungeon, would be quite low.
“Heeey, listen here everyone! “
Suddenly coming up with something, I stood up and walked in front of them.
The idea was to kill two birds with one stone, raising their morale while at the same time gaining their favor.
“I’LL SHOULDER THE ACCOMMODATION FEE! DRINK AS MUCH AS YOU WANT, EAT, PLAY, ENTER THE HOT SPRINGS, SLEEP! “
The moment I finished declaring so, everyone cheered in high spirits. Applauses and finger whistling echoed. Still, to remain in formation even at this moment, as expected of soldiers.
If they’re this happy with just spending some of my money, it somewhat makes me happy too. I learned that it’s better to spend the money you earn like this, comfortably.
“However, don’t drink too much today. If you have a hangover tomorrow, let alone a monster, I’ll be the one to kill you.”
When I spoke like that jokingly, everyone was surprised. Everyone was feeling better, that’s why the laughter was decreasing, probably. Ahh, this is nice.
“Kid. How should I say it…… Is it really okay? “
“It can’t be helped; the reservation is already made. You can’t decline.”
“Is, that so?”
“It’s alright Captain, leave the seriousness aside and enjoy yourself. This level of expenses is of no concern at all.”
“……Haha, that’s good then.”
Captain Zephyr bowed down as if to say “I’m grateful”, then went into the inn alongside the rest of the members. He had a nice smile. It almost seemed like he wanted to start skipping without minding the people. That merry mood was quite the polar opposite of before.
“Uh, what is it? You can also go inside, Sherry-chan.”
“What a blatant plan to earn favor. This is why I hate upstart rich people.”
“Yeah. Exactly because I just became rich, I don’t know anything about how to spend money.”
“……Hmph, is that so?”
Turning away from me, Sherry-chan followed the captain and the rest.
While I looked at the back of that girl in a bad mood, Silvia came while carrying a tired Eko.
“Uhm, that kokeshi-looking girl, doesn’t she look similar to someone we know? “
“Is that so? “
“Umu. Who was it? ……yeah, who was it?”
“……Yeah, don’t you think she looks similar to someone we know? “
“Like I said, to whom?”
In the end, Silvia just kept saying “yeah, yeah”, while not remembering whom.
So, she looks like someone……? Well, Sherry-chan’s sharp tongue and coldness are not like Yukari’s. By appearance alone, she might look closer to Eko. However, by the fact that Silvia can’t remember who, I guess it’s not one of those two who are close to me.
Well, whatever. More than thinking about this, I want a drink and take a bath. It’d be a waste if we don’t enjoy this high-class inn now that we’re here.
I then went inside the inn while feeling pretty good with myself.
