It has been awhile since I’ve went back to my mansion after coming out from the trading shop.
Heading inside the mansion when the sun sets, a girl who was wearing an apron while using a broom larger than herself to sweep the floor, Emily, our eyes met.
[Yoda-san! Welcome back nanodesu!] (Emily)
Emily placed the broom down, and immediately come towards me.
More precisely, she leaped forward several meters ahead towards me.
The moment she landed on the ground, she hugged me tightly, and I couldn’t stop it—–but that last long.
Before that could happen, the protector on me turned back into a human form, Leia, stood in between us, making Emily stop.
[Who might you be nanodesu] (Emily)
[Master, who is this] (Leia)
The two of them asked me at the same time.
[This is our new friend Emily, may I trouble with getting a room ready for her as well.](Ryouta)
[I got it nanodesu.] (Emily)
Emily then walked back into the mansion with pitter patter footsteps echoing.
[Is Master my friend] (Leia)
[That’s what I assumed…..Do you not want it] (Ryouta)
As I am always Master’s tool.] (Leia)
[Being a tool is really saddening, instead of that, be a friend is better.] (Ryouta) (TLN: Before Leia can even be a lover, Ryouta has already friendzoned her.)
Since I knew that her soul was gone, it’s normal for her to be using the word [tool].
Hence why I strongly propose on being [friends], as I stared at her with determination.
[As a friend…..] (Leia)
[As a friend…..can I also hug Master] (Leia)
Ah, so she was talking about what Emily did just now.
[It’s not like I mind—–] (Ryouta)
Before I could finish my sentence, a hand from beside me reached out to my head and chopped me.
As I look beside, I could see Eve’s appearance.
A self prided bunny ears with a bunny suit to complete the image.
With the same lack of emotions that Leia has, Eve chopped me another time.
[It hurts, it hurts, what’s the matter with you Eve.] (Ryouta)
[I hate low level.] (Eve)
[That’s kinda nostalgic.] (Ryouta)
After smiling at the sight, I took out a carrot from within my pocket, and showed it to Eve.
While farming for the 10 Million Piros, I kept a few carrots for her.
It was a freshly made Drop S carrot.
Eve then showed a sweet and happy expression, before taking the carrot from my hands.
[Long time no see, carrot.] (Eve)
[I’m glad to hear it.] (Ryouta)
[You have a long deposit.] (Eve)
[In the end, you still chop my head.] (Ryouta)
After receiving the carrot, Eve who’s mood was lifted up lightly chop my head again.
Then munching on the carrot, she retreated back into the mansion.
[As usual this Eve……Hm What’s the matter Leia, did you find something interesting about Eve] (Ryouta)
[That person, is also Master’s friend] (Leia)
[Yeah she is, why the sudden question] (Ryouta)
[Does a friend….chop people.] (Leia)
[Eh Ah so that’s what you were implying.
It’s not like you can’t do it, and since you’re my friend, whatever you’re thinking, you can just do it.] (Ryouta)
Was this a hasty commitment Was what I thought for a moment, but my friends were all pretty unique in their own way.
All of them have their own various emotions that they convey towards me.
I guess Leia was trying to imitate what they were doing to me as a friend.
If she could return just a few percent of those feelings, then I’m find with whatever she wants to do.
The image of Alice suddenly went past my thoughts, as I would think that she might be a good influencer for Leia.
This time it was Cerberus who ran towards me from the garden.
Cerberus the big (red) dog.
He fiercely dashed towards me, and immediately breaked right as he reached in front of me, then with eyes glowing brightly, he looked at me.
[Welcome home Master.] (Cerberus)
[I’m back.] (Ryouta)
I have safely protected this mansion when Master isn’t around.] (Cerberus)
[I see—] (Ryouta)
With his big and round puppy eyes, Cerberus’s aura was portraying a [Please praise me~] kinda look.
Thus, I petted his head, and right then his tails were wagging like crazy.
Even though his body is huge, but in these sorts of places, he’s just like a normal dog.
[…..This is also Master’s friend] (Leia)
[Eh Uhmm I guess….yeah, he’s also a friend to me.] (Ryouta)
[In a way, Leia is the closest to me when it comes to being a friend.
Cerberus is a pet and a friend.
Whereas Leia is a tool and a friend.] (Ryouta)
Let’s try….and follow with what she was saying just now.
Letting her know that I don’t want her to think of herself as just a tool.
Leia might think that her identity is that of a [tool].
If I don’t change that mentality of hers, she might still be thinking of herself as one.
After saying that, Leia stared hard at Cerberus.
After being mentioned as being the closest to me, she stared at Cerberus.
Then after awhile, she turned and look at me.
And even though it doesn’t seem like it, but she too imitate Cerberus’s aura of [Please praise me~] as well.
But she didn’t say anything.
But because she didn’t say anything, the intense pressure of wanting me to do it is even higher.
[Yes, Master.] (Leia)
[It’s alright to say what you want.
So don’t hold yourself back.] (Ryouta)
Is she gonna finally say it Was what I thought when.
Cerberus suddenly tackled me because I stopped petting his head.
A giant dog the size of a St.
Bernard was on top of me.
After pushing me down, Cerberus continued to lick my face.
It’s the instinct of a dog to show its love towards its owner, so even though my face was covered in saliva, he didn’t mean anything bad to it.
Then I felt a gaze.
It was Leia’s eyes gazing at me on the ground.
My heart throbbed.
[W, wait a minute Leia, don’t be rash—–] (Ryouta)
It was too late when I realized it.
Leia and Cerberus both licked me like crazy.
