Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 257
shi ~ n……
[[[[[[Uwa ā a a~a ~~ ~!!!]]]]]]
For the opening, they shot a big one.
The No. 20, which costs 800,000 yen per shot, 2 shaku-dama?
Ahhh, in an instant, 800,000 yen! And that’s not including labor costs!
800,000 yen cannon……
Kinda looks like Gahha Kalakala*, doesn’t it?
Since this is this world’s first real firework, they must have thought that if the first shot is not good, it will affect their reputation……
Besides, due to the budget constraint, they couldn’t launch so many balls at the same time in a row, so they decided to space them out and let us enjoy them one by one. I’m not a big fan of quick launches because they consume a lot of balls in a short time.
However, we are not in the age of manually igniting the fuses one by one, so everything must be pre-programmed, electronically controlled, and remotely ignited using electric fuses, I guess.
Safety first, right?
As you can imagine, it’s not easy to launch a 2 shaku-dama. The other options are the 100,000 yen No. 10 (shaku-dama) and the 30,000 yen No. 7.
The 5,000 yen No. 3 or so is indeed shoddy……, but no, it can also have a good taste depending on how you use it. It all depends on the skill of the professionals.
And so, they carefully launch each shot, sometimes with a series of shots, within a limited budget.
If this had been an event sponsored by the royal palace, I would have been able to come up with a sufficient budget, but since I told them that it was just a birthday celebration for the daughter of a Count, they understood that I couldn’t spend a lot of much money.
……Even the fact that the royal palace grounds have been offered as a launch site (and, of course, several soldiers are on guard) might suggest that this is no ordinary Count.
The soldiers may not understand those things at all, though. Because they’re not pyrotechnicians…….
Anyway, I’m sure the Zenjiro-san is aware of the possibility that if things go well, they could be working on a birthday party of a princess or a daughter of a Marquis. At that time, I’m going to reward them enough that they can even make a surplus from it…
Regardless of such a profit and loss statement, there is no reason to think that it would ruin a fireworks master’s name to show something half-hearted to people from another world who are watching fireworks for the first time in their lives. They’re all just idiots (that’s a compliment)……
Today, before the start of the show, I brought in several employees from the morning to do the installation work.
Of course, I made sure that all the employees were kept in the strictest confidentiality, and I didn’t explain the details to anyone other than Oya-san and the people who were with me during the preliminary inspection. They worked on the installation under his supervision.
……Of course, because this is a <different world>, you know?
Well, even if they told anyone, no one would believe them, it would be like a stupid story about <how they went to another world and set off fireworks>……
So even if someone leaked it, if the owner and the other employees denied it, the person who leaked it would be treated as a liar and that would be the end of it. There’s no proof that they went to another world.
Yes, I’ve instructed the soldiers on guard to ensure the safety of the employees and to <keep an eye on them so that they don’t bring anything back from this world>. I won’t let them bring back a single blade of grass, not even a leaf.
In this respect, it is convenient that the installation is in the royal palace. It’s not unnatural that there are guards or that there are limited places to act by themselves.
Well, I’ll get rid of the extra stuff during teleportation on the way back anyway……
And the fireworks are going on as planned.
Although they are not as good as some of the biggest fireworks displays in Japan, they do their best to put together a program with a small number of fireworks in a short period of time to show off many different types of fireworks.
Some people shouted with excitement, some watched stunned in silence, and some cried out that it was a miracle of the Goddess……
Of course, it’s not just the people in this courtyard.
All over the capital, people were crying and shouting in enthusiasm at the fire arrows that rose from the royal palace and bloomed into a large flower of fire under the night sky.
The voices must have reached the people who were working on the launch site on the grounds of the royal palace.
Of course, they’ve probably done many launches on a much larger scale before.
……But I don’t think they’ve done many jobs that are so rewarding and heart-warming as this.
I hope they’re happy with it……
Then, the finale was a series of random shots, and finally, the fireworks ended successfully with a big one…… Probably a shaku-dama…….
All that’s left was to bring them back to Japan using teleportation. By the time the party and the after-party with the people involved are over, we finished cleaning up.
I’ve prepared some food and drinks for the maids to eat and drink when they’re done with the cleanup.
……Non-alcoholic, of course.
Since it was nighttime and there would be no one around, we could move the truck with the equipment to the side of the store, but the employees would go home from there by using their own cars.
Besides, if they tried to unload the truck right away, they might crush their hands or foot because they were drunk, I would be in trouble.
After the fireworks, the audience, who had been in a daze for a while, finally rebooted, praising the work of the goddess in blessing Beatrice-chan’s coming of age, and talking excitedly with the people around them, their spits were flying everywhere…….
It’s a blessing that it’s night and I can’t see the spit flying.
Some people seem to think that fireworks are the work of the goddess, but of course, some don’t think so.
Like the people who were watching the launch process at the royal palace…… And Count Bozes, who will be charged for the expenses.
Eh? Why is Sabine-chan so angry? She’s raging.
Isn’t this the part where people are supposed to be impressed and admire the fireworks?
[Why ……?] Sabine
[Why did you just use that now? What are you going to do when I have my debutante ball!
I’ll be the laughing stock if I copy the same thing!
I’m sure you’ll have something more awesome than that for me, right!?] Sabine
Sabine-chan became furious at my unintentional leak of the word.
[Ah? What do you mean, ah? Don’t tell me you didn’t think of anything? It’s not like Mitsuha used up all of her hidden party items this time, right? Right? RIGHT!?……] Sabine
What should I do… Oh, I got something!
[Your Highness Luchen, did you enjoy the show? What did you think of the fireworks you just saw?……] Mitsuha
[Hey! Don’t you dare run away!] Sabine
No, no way, if there is such a nice escape bullet comes, I’ll use it!
Sabine-chan has a soft spot for her little brother, Luchen, so she couldn’t interrupt me or raise her voice when I’m talking to him! Ehehe…….
[……Mitsuha? Of course, you’ll have something even more awesome for my coming of age party!] Luchen
[Oh, no, not this one, toooo!] Mitsuha
There was nothing more for me to do, and the party ended without a hitch.
Afterwards, we had an after-party with the extra food and drinks, along with the servants of the Bozes family, the army of helpers from Viscount Rainer’s family, and the cast of the Electric Illumination Parade. Of course, not just the members of the Bozes family, Sabine-chan, and Adelaide-chan also joined in.
You’re not the kind of girl who would just leave while the servants of your own house are attending the party, are you, Adelaide-chan?
She’ll be going home with the servants, so it won’t be a problem if she’s a little late.
Of course, her parents are very sensitive people, so they had already left.
And why are you here? Your Majesty the King, First Princess, and Prime Minister?……
Oh, is the Second Princess Chīne-sama there too?……
It’s the party within the circle, so let’s read the air!
……But the first and second princesses are already adults, and thankfully, Beatrice-chan has no younger sister, thank goodness……. Really, I’m glad…….
