Fun Territory Defense of the Easy-Going Lord - Chapter 58
Legendary Adventurer Who Have Returned
The inhabitants of the neighboring villages had never imagined that they would be given a home, and stayed in their houses in stunned silence.
The next day. Soup, salad, and bread for breakfast? I said something like, “I think I’ll have soup, salad, and bread for breakfast.
I regretted that I should have prepared several kinds of food like a buffet restaurant.
However, I changed my mind in five minutes and headed for the town planning.
While recruiting a fit young man to join the Seat Order in the future, I had him help build the town at the same time.
“Pull the rope over there!”
“It’s a little crooked. Turn right.”
“To the right!”
With a shout that had a strong on-the-spot feel, we pulled the rope to check the angle and length. This was the easiest way to do it.
“So this is the residence. Then, is this the entrance?”
“That would be easier to use. The stores will be lined up this way, and there is no reason to go in and out on the other side.”
“Right. Then we’ll move the materials…they’re already there. Everyone’s getting faster.”
While I was talking to Espada, the residents of Seat Village were moving. They were all carrying wood blocks in their hands. Incidentally, the residents of the neighboring village were also helping with the work, although they were puzzled.
The old men were taking care of the cows they were accustomed to and securing a place to keep them. I was impressed by their surprise that the eyes almost popped out of their heads when they found out that the place they have chosen to live was near a lake where Apkallu lives.
“I see. We’ll help you take care of them.”
And that was a good response from Apkallu. The Apkallu were giving water to the cows, bringing them grass, feeding them, paying no attention to the bewildered old men that watches over the cows.
It was an interesting scene. Surprisingly, the old men and the Apkallu seemed to get along well with each other.
The children, on the other hand, were excited about their new home, and even more excited about how big the walls were. So, they got together with the children of Seat village and explored the area.
It was very nice to see more people and a more lively atmosphere. The village that looked so poor in the beginning seemed to be a lie.
“Van-sama! Do you still need this?”
Dee and the others, who were coming toward us with their wagons loaded with wood that had not yet been turned into wood blocks, asked us in a loud voice.
“Well, I guess so. I think we need another hundred logs? We’ve finally run out of wood blocks.”
He was carrying a huge axe I made for him on his shoulder and smiling broadly.
“Leave it to me! I’ll get you about a hundred of them in a day! Now, everyone! Let’s get the wagons ready and head for the woods!”
Dee turned and shouted, and not only Arv and Roe, but also the physically fit people of Seat Village, responded with a loud voice.
Huh? Can’t they form an order of knights already?
There were guys who looked just like Viking men.
“Ha! What is it, Van-sama!”
I called out, and Dee, turned around quickly.
“Couldn’t we form an order of knights with all those energetic guys?”
“Wow! That’s interesting! I’ll ask them!
Dee confirmed this to everyone.
But then an unexpected answer came back.
“Well, I’ve already been invited by Espada… I’ve already signed the contract to join the group…”
The honest-looking young man said apologetically, and I couldn’t help but be surprised.
Seriously, Espada, you had me right from the start. You’re too quick at it, really.
I regretted that I was late in the rush to start, but as I checked, it seemed that about one-third of the group had not been approached by anyone.
Thank goodness. If I appoint Dee as the leader of the order of knights, we can form an order of knights with around 20 people, with Arv and Roe as second-in-command.
I reflexively chuckled to myself, hearing Dee.
Espada’s Order of Knights had a little over forty people at most. If that’s the case, it would be better to form an order of knights with around sixty knights.
But we were going to build a new town.
I decided to create a new order of knights that would be unique to this village and make Espada watch over the other place.
I made up my mind and asked Dee and the others to resume the log gathering.
As I was thinking about the knights, I saw a carriage coming toward us from the other side of the road.
“It’s a carriage, probably.”
It was so far away that he wasn’t sure. But Camsin nodded clearly.
“It’s a single horse and a medium-sized carriage. It doesn’t look like it has an escort.”
I wonder why everyone has such good eyesight. It’s a great eyesight cheat, isn’t it?
“If there’s no escort, maybe Xsara? Normally, if you’re coming to a remote area like this, you wouldn’t travel alone or with just one or two people.”
Camsin’s eyes widened.
“It’s quite a distance away, but there are other carriages in the back…”
“The carriage in front of us is also very far away, but if we were very far away from it, we wouldn’t be able to see anything, would we?”
I try to complain about my somewhat abnormal eyesight. But Camsin is not to blame. The problem is my bad eyesight.
As I’m feeling down, Till and Arte look into my face.
“It’s okay, I can’t see either.”
“Thank you. You are all so kind.”
With their words, I was able to find hope again in this world.
I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t know what I’m talking about.
At any rate, I got myself back on track and started building the house.
After more than an hour, when we had finished building another new residence, the carriage finally came close to us.
There was a familiar figure of a fat adventurer in the driver’s seat, and a beautiful woman peeking out from the back of the wagon.
Till answered when I asked.
“Don’t tell me, you saved that woman from a crisis in Royal Capital, and she fell in love with you…?”
“That’s lovely, it sounds like a heroic tale.”
Arte bites into Till’s prediction. The two are excited, but unfortunately, it’s Xsara on the other end.
“I wonder if he’ll do something cool like that…”
I comment negatively, and Camsin tilts his head.
“But, in a humble way, Xsara-san is wonderful. He moves fast and is the best at detecting signs and finding and disarming traps. His use of the sword is unique, but he is also good. He is also good at throwing stones, throwing knives, and bows and arrows.”
“What, you can do everything? Even though you are Xsara-san?”
As Camsin, Till, Arte and I were discussing Xsara’s skills, personality, and whether he was hot or not, he called out to us.
“Hey, Van-sama, I wish you would stop gossiping about me so loudly.”
Xsara says something like that while looking at me with half-lidded eyes. It’s a complaint. Let’s go around.
“Hey, Xsara-san, welcome back. By the way, how are you?”
I asked, while Till and Arte leaned forward to listen.
Xsara answered, perhaps because of the attention, but he seems reluctant to say anything.
“We met by chance. I had nowhere else to go, so I showed him around. Are you okay with the number of residents still increasing?”
“Yes, of course. We’ve added about 300 people, but it’s still not a problem at all.”
“Three hundred people! Are you talking about the residents of the neighboring village? That’s a lot of people!”
With the surprised Xsara at his side, Till speaks to the woman who appears from behind Xsara on behalf of the others.
“Nice to meet you. My name is Till. This is Van Nay Fertio-sama, the lord.”
The woman, who had completely lost her timing to introduce herself, answered with a relieved look.
“My name is Flamilia Stratos. Xsara-sama saved me when I was being attacked by orcs near the royal capital, and I was able to accompany you here.”
When the woman who identified herself as Flamilia said this, Till and Arte looked at Xsara and Flamilia’s faces, their eyes shining.
I, on the other hand, looked at Xsara’s face and let out such an honest comment.
“No, I’m not…I’m not even that good-looking.”
“No, Xsara-sama says so, but from my point of view, you were nicer than any hero in any heroic tale.”
Xsara turned away as if embarrassed, but Flamilia replied with a soft ladylike smile, and Till and Arte cheer.
I couldn’t believe it until the very end.
