Chapter 95: Lady’s meal
ED: Lowe, eteruna
“… It was a treat.” (Richelle) (Gochisōsamadeshita) [or thanks for the meal for usual anime translation]
After saying that, Richelle-san elegantly bows her head down.
She told us that she was from the family named Valeria, and once again,
I think that she was brought up well.
Her long brown ears are shaking lightly but she is clearly in a good mood,
but even so, she has elegant gestures.
But when I saw her like that, the surroundings were silent.
It is not the reason was like “we can’t understand or speak her language”.
I am in trouble with this silence and can’t find any words to say.
Eventually, Zeno-kun begins to murmur.
“Food for three days …” (Zeno)
Richelle-san has eaten a large number of meals by herself.
At first, everyone was eating regularly.
I was also hungry.
And Kuzuha-chan, who used a lot of her magical power,
said “A good way to recover magical power is to properly eat meals” was eating more than usual.
In the meantime, Richelle-san’s plate quickly became empty.
She said while looking at Zeno,
“Um … May I have a second helping …?” (Richelle)
Even though he was quite surprised, Zeno-kun still brought the addition immediately. That was the beginning of the tragedy.
After the third helping, Zeno began giving a substitute with wry facial expression face.
By the fifth helping, Felnote-san put down the chopsticks with an “I am full just by watching” expression. (T.N: Felnote only eat her portion and she isn’t even finished her portion when Richelle already eats the fifth helping)
By the eighth helping, Kuzuha-chan finished eating her portion and began to look interestingly at Richelle-san who is still eating. (T.N: Kuzuha is also only eating her portion and when she finished her portion, Richelle is still eating eighth helping)
It was after the tenth helping that it was stupid to keep count, so I decided to look briefly.
And now, finally, the meal ends, the result “damage” seems to be Zeno-kun’s so-called food for three days.
I wonder where that amount of food disappeared in her slim body.
“… Well, it seems like you haven’t eaten anything in a long time.” (Kuzuha)
“Well, that’s right, she hasn’t eaten anything for days, it can not be helped that she ate a lot!” (Zeno)
Follow-up Kuzuha-chan’s comment, Zeno-kun nodded as he gave up.
However, we already took a meal, and we also got a break so I could go on talking.
It’s troublesome, but we better talk it out soon with my interpreter skills.
Thinking so, I begin to speak.
“So … about what you said, what is the Demon Continent?” (Arge)
“Ah … right now, we are in the Central Continent, there are several land areas across the sea around it, the Demon Continent is one of them, it called the paradise of Demi-Human” (Richelle)
“A long time ago, when the Humans are still ruling and the Demi Human don’t have any rights in the Central Continent, a certain dragonkin built that place for those who are not a human beings … I heard from my mother.” (Kuzuha)
“It will be a boat trip then, Zeno, can you prepare it?” (Felnote)
“Well … Because the sea around the demonic continent is so rough during this time, I don’t know whether there is a place to bring out the ship …” (Zeno)
“Oh, I have a ship right here.” (Arge)
In response to my remarks, the gaze of all but Richelle gathered on me.
As I said, I have a ship. At the port town Arlesha, the mushroom lord who love women … I mean, I received a ship from Samaka-san.
Its name is Pisces.
It is a type of run down merchant ship that was waiting for disposal, but it is more than enough to carry five people.
It was stored in the Blood Bag all this time, but since it has not been destroyed when used last time, it will be usable without problems.
“You have a ship in your … Blood bag, right?
But what about those who move the ship?” (Felnote)
“With the skill of blood contract, I can move it by myself” (Arge)
“… I have forgotten, but you have tremendous skills as usual.” (Felnote)
I deliberately turned my eyes awkwardly from Felnote-san.
This gaze is also the first time in a long time, my back is a little ticklish.
For the time being, put aside the nostalgia gaze, I called Zeno.
“There is a ship, if Zeno-kun want, I will put it out.” (Arge)
“… Is that ok?” (Zeno)
“Because I want to return my favor.” (Arge)
“Well then, please.” (Zeno)
“Yes, you can count on me” (Arge)
Originally I was only keeping it.
Let’s use it without reserve if It will help Zeno.
It’s what I have now, and tools are meant to be used.
The sea seemed to be desolate, but if I’m asleep,
I won’t feel any seasickness.
It is not bad to take a nap while swaying with the waves.
“Um … Ship, what is …?” (Richelle)
It was Richelle who talked to me.
She can’t understand anything other than my words.
In other words, the information is fragmentary,
so she doesn’t know what are we talking about.
“I will use the ship because we need to cross the ocean to bring you home” (Arge)
“… I am sorry … I really appreciate it, I will definitely return this favor, including your help for removing my curse.” (Richelle)
“If you want to say thanks, please say it to Zeno-kun, the man over there, I’m just helping you go home because I want to return his favor.” (Arge)
“… Still, it is Arge-sama who prepares the ship, it is reasonable for me to appreciate that if it helps me as a result” (Richelle)
“… Oh Well, just think as you like.” (Arge)
Apparently she is strongly pushing, It seems I will not able to change her thinking.
Even if I continue to deny, because the story will not advance and it will be troublesome, I will let she think as she likes.
“By the way, why was you caught that way?” (Arge)
“… An intruder come to our territory, I tried to repel it … but he took hostage … and I was captured too” (Richelle)
“Ah, I see” (Arge)
“Although I was able to release the hostages and let them escape … after that, I was severely tied up, and I couldn’t help it any more.” (Richelle)
So she was caught by an intruder and was helped by Zeno-kun and Felnote-san when she is about to be sold as slave.
From Zeno-kun’s reaction, Dark Elf is like a rare race, so she will sell higher.
I fully understand that such a thing is “wrong” but this is another world.
From what Felnote-san said, the word slaves naturally appeared, and there are also cases like Kuzuha’s mother was killed.
I couldn’t call it nice even in my former world, and this world seems to be a bit worse than my world.
“Well then, the destination is the demon continent, uhm… Kuzuha-chan …what about you?” (Arge)
“Of course, I will follow my friend!” (Kuzuha)
“Okay, I’d like to thank you.” (Arge)
I still don’t understand the theory that she comes with friends. However, Kuzuha-chan seems to be having fun and I’m convinced. For her, that would be fine.
There is no reason to stop. Kuzuha-chan can make an alter ego and I was saved by her with various things.
Even a small thing, I will pay for it properly the favor that I pile up. I’d also like to return something in the meantime, so I’d like to welcome her to follow me. Besides, being with her is quite fun.
“I will go back to Sakuranomiya and prepare … especially food relations” (Zeno)
“Well, I think that’s good.” (Arge)
“Also, Arge-san … Could you ask Richelle-san what special product of her homeland (to buy) or what is not available in her homeland? (to sell stuff that is not there)” (Zeno)
“I understand” (Arge)
I nodded and responded to Zeno, who began preparing for the departure while starting to head out as a merchant.
Demon Continent, isn’t it? What kind of place is it?
I am glad if that was a place easy to take a nap.
