[Yoda-san, you have a guest nanodesu.] (Emily)
It’s evening, after finishing work, I picked Aurum from her dungeon and Emily who was waiting in front of the Teleportation Room to tell me.
[A guest Don’t tell me something has happened again] (Ryouta)
[I think it’s probably fine nanodesu.] (Emily)
[Hm To say it with such confidence.
Have you spoke with our guest already] (Ryouta)
[Once you see it then you’ll know desu~] (Emily)
Emily smiled brightly like the sun as she answered.
I’ll know once I see…..Well either way I still have to see them.
[Where’s the person] (Ryouta)
[The person is waiting at the living room.] (Emily)
[I got it.] (Ryouta)
[Sounds like a rather interesting conversation, I too shall—–] (Aurum)
[Aurum-chan will come with me nanodesu.] (Emily)
[Eh Wai-t, don’t pull my collar—–] (Aurum)
Aurum who just arrived was pulled away by Emily.
The existence of a Dungeon Spirit is kinda a big deal, but Emily dragged her away like it was nothing.
Dragging Aurum and pushing her into her room, and before she closed the door behind her, she looked at me and winked at me.
While thinking about what that meant, I went towards the living room.
It was a nostalgic face when I saw the person.
Long time no see.] (Ryouta)
[It’s been awhile.] (Margaret)
[What brings you here today…..Wait, no matter how I look at it, are you wearing a dress now Did you just come back from some party] (Ryouta)
Margaret didn’t look like her usual Princess appearance, but was wearing a pure dress.
[That’s not it.
I have come to invite you.] (Margaret)
[Yes, p, ple…….] (Margaret)
Margaret was stuttering, so she took a deep breath and resolve herself.
[Please go out on a date with me.] (Margaret)
Inside the carriage, Margaret and I were sitting facing each other.
It felt like the air around her has changed since the first time I’ve met her.
Is it because of what she’s wearing, or because of the atmosphere.
Looking outside the window of the carriage, I was looking at the city of Shikuro at dusk while facing such a woman.
[May I ask where are we going] (Ryouta)
[You will enjoy yourself once you reach there.] (Margaret)
So, is this your average date] (Ryouta)
[Yes, this is a genuine date.] (Margaret)
Margaret’s cheeks blushed, as she smiled and said.
[I have heard of all the rumours about you.
But it’s not like that.
Today, I just wanted to have a date with you.] (Margaret)
[I see, well it is an honour to be going on a date with that Princess Margaret.](Ryouta)
[I have also heard of rumours about the success of Margaret.
Having great success as an adventurer, and recently the prices of your air have climbed up to that of the price of an eel.] (Ryouta)
Margaret looked extremely happy, and her cheeks deepen with red.
Margaret’s air box.
It has been awhile since I mentioned that, as the box that I sold to her works as whoever deals the finishing blow would have their face imprinted into the box.
Even from before, her air was already selling like hotcakes, but recently it was much more crazy.
And her customers aren’t all guys.
There were some girls.
It wasn’t just air, but she even sold some fabulous perfume, was is used as an aroma.
So when I say that I know of it….Margaret was happy to have those news reached to me.
[Hm What is that over there.] (Ryouta)
A shop peaked my interest as I looked outside of the carriage.
[Which shop] (Margaret)
[There, the shop over there.] (Ryouta)
[That is a Water Stand.] (Margaret)
[A water stand] (Ryouta)
[Yes, and as the name suggests, it’s a store that sells water.] (Margaret)
[I didn’t there was such a thing.] (Ryouta)
[……Fufu, it’s a recent thing.
So it’s normal that you don’t know about it.] (Margaret)
[What do you mean by that] (Ryouta)
As I asked, Margaret smiled lovingly.
I was incredibly surprised, to the point that the carriage shook.
Where the hell did he come from, as the moment Margaret called, one of the 4 knights would appear.
I wonder if he was running in parallel from outside the carriage.
[Wh, where did you appear from] (Ryouta)
[We are always loyal to the Princess, so whenever and wherever she calls for us, we will always be on standby.] (Rat)
[Is it fine with you to have them constantly be near you, Margaret] (Ryouta)
[ ] Margaret was confused as she tilts her head.
Wait, you know you do have your own privacy…..but I feel like she really won’t get what I mean so it’s better if I don’t ask.
Margaret did not understand what I was trying to say, but Rat who was called knows.
[For the sake of the Princess, we have gone through special training.
So the moment we hear the Princess’s voice, we will only show what the Princess wants to see.] (Rat)
[Now that’s downright creepy!] (Ryouta)
I mean it’s amazing in its own way, but scary at the same time.
Is that even loyalty at this point It’s more like an occult.
I know that the knights were already amazing when I first met them, but right now I feel that they’re on a whole new level.
[Anyways Rat, explain.] (Margaret)
Water stand, it is a recently opened business.
If my sources are correct, the reason why it exists is dues to Satou-sama.] (Rat)
It’s because of me Why
[As Satou-sama would take on various requests, the bad influences of Shikuro has slowly diminished, so the amount of production has gradually been raising.] (Rat)
[I mean rather than me…..isn’t that a good thing for Shikuro] (Ryouta)
[Shikuro is an agricultural city, and the vegetation has increased in volume.
However on the other hand, water supply is chronically falling short.] (Rat)
[If the amount of production has increased in a dungeon, then it means that the amount of times the drops missed has fallen, so water has been getting less.] (Rat)
So that explains it.
I remembered stories heard from Emily shortly after coming to this world.
As common to every dungeon, when the prescribed items are not dropped, water and air is dropped.
In other words, the production of water, air, and vegetables must be proportional to each other.
As I’ve done various things, the amount of production increased and in return tax revenue increased, but the ones that was affected was water.
[And that’s why.] (Margaret)
[I didn’t know about that…..] (Ryouta)
[It is truly amazing, and if you were to get involved, I’m sure water would eventually be increased as well.
And in a good way.] (Margaret)
[Well, it’s also a form of business.] (Ryouta)
With this, there’s a new possibility to earn money for Final F people unlike last time.
If business and work increases, money would circulate around.
[If you think about it, we’re quite similar.] (Ryouta)
[Margaret is air, and I’m water.
As we made something that was once worth nothing into something, so our statuses are quite similar.] (Ryouta)
[……..Because I wanted to imitate what you’re doing.] (Margaret)
[Eh What did you just say] (Ryouta)
I could not catch her soft voice just now.
[It’s nothing, I think that the prices of water is much more amazing then compared to the prices of air, is what I said.] (Margaret)
[Is that really what you said.] (Ryouta)
Margaret was praising me so much, but it didn’t feel bad.
