The main branch of the “Golden Tree” in the main store.
The guest room.
As soon as I entered the room and settled down on the sofa, I let out the air that had accumulated in my chest as if to replace it.
A fifteen-minute nap at Plumbum’s place will take care of the physical fatigue, but the high speed will make the mental fatigue worse than usual.
If physical strength is HP, this is MP consumption (regardless of the status).
By the way, the most MP-draining thing is the combo of “think about it yourself” and “don’t do it on your own, ask me if you don’t understand” that my boss gave me when I was a new salaryman.
If that’s 100, today’s MP drain is only 1, so I can afford it.
Here’s some cold tea.”
“Thank you, Ena.” (Ryouta)
“You’re welcome.” (Ena)
She put the cold tea in front of me and sat down across from me with the tray in her hand.
“I’m sorry, I’m just tallying up the numbers now, please wait a minute.” (Ena)
I’ll come home with you when I’m done.” (Ryouta)
“Yeah, …… hey Ryouta-san.” (Ena)
“Hmm What’s up” (Ryouta)
“Wouldn’t it be faster to use that money” (Ena)
“That money” (Ryouta)
“You know, the money I put in the account I set up to pay for Vanadium’s lease.” (Ena)
“Oh, …….” (Ryouta)
I nodded quietly, “You mean that”
I rented out Vanadium dungeon for Vanadium who was scared of humans.
The dungeons belong to the spirits —– or rather to the spirits themselves, as they are part of their bodies —– but they have become part of the “society” of this world.
The only way to do something about it is to pay for it.
So I paid a decent price, 1.5 billion a year, to rent Vanadium Dungeon itself.
“You want me to use the money in that account” (Ryouta)
“Yeah, you’ve still got about half of it left, you should be able to spend some of it.” (Ena)
“No, I’m not going to touch that one.” (Ryouta)
“Why not” (Ena)
Ena looked at me with a look of genuine doubt.
Come to think of it, I’d left the paperwork of setting up the account and moving the money to Ena and Elsa, but I hadn’t explained it to her.
“The Vanadium lease — well, the rent I put together for a year, and I made a separate account and put it in.” (Ryouta)
“That’s to make sure that whatever happens over the next year, at least Vanadium will be okay.
For example, if I didn’t do that and just carried on as normal, the money I’ve paid so far and the money I’ve spent on this — I’d be almost out of money, wouldn’t I” (Ryouta)
But with you, Ryouta-san—–” (Ena)
“What if I get sick here” (Ryouta)
“Even if I’m not sick —- well, what if some spirit grabs me and locks me up in a spirit’s place for a few months” (Ryouta)
“Then I’d be exposing Vanadium to another trauma.
That’s why we keep it there for a year ahead of time.” (Ryouta)
And …… rent arrears can be pretty heartbreaking.
Of course you can’t legally be evicted for a month or so in arrears, but there’s that awful feeling when you’re asked to pay.
And the feeling of not being able to get back on your feet is very distressing.
In MP terms —- it’s almost like 99% percentage damage.
I don’t want to be …… like that anymore.
…… Well, that was a long time ago.
“So I’m not going to touch that.
It’s the very promise I made to Vanadium.” (Ryouta)
I don’t break my promises, so you can trust me.
“…… Seriously.” (Ena)
Ena sighed lightly.
But it’s a smile, I don’t sense any ill feeling.
“That talk …… and that expression, you should have made that expression when Elza came.” (Ena)
“Yeah, Elza thought so too.
Well, I’ll explain later.” (Ryouta)
“That’s not what I meant, though, is it” (Ena)
Ena sighed again, this time for some reason with a bit of a wince in it.
“After the second time, it’s less exciting, even if it’s the first time for the viewer.” (Ena)
“I’m the kind of person who wants to go see a play the first day it’s performed, I guess.” (Ena)
I don’t know, but I think I’ve touched on something she’s proud of.
“Okay, I’ll leave the rest to you.” (Ena)
“Leave …… what to me” (Ryouta)
“We’ll definitely get enough stones for the number of people.
Even if you have money, it will be useless if you don’t have the things you want to buy.” (Ena)
“Oh, …… that’s right.
“Again with that expression …… oh my god!” (Ena)
Ena laughed again, then smacked herself on the head and got up to leave the room.
I don’t know,……, but if she says so, then I’m relieved.
You can trust them when it comes to purchasing.
