Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 291
“Mitsuha-sama, do you want the former site of the Enova Chamber of Commerce?” (Larushia)
“What do you mean by that ……?” (Mitsuha)
A few days later.
I thought it was time to return to my usual business, so I came to let them know that I was going back to the Vanell Kingdom, and as I was having tea with Larushia, she suddenly said such a thing to me.
“It seems the other five stores will continue to exist. But as expected, the main culprit, the Enova Chamber of Commerce, cannot be left as it is……
Well, even if the owner was replaced, if they operate the same type of business there, they won’t attract any customers. It should be a completely different type of business, or it would turn into a private house or warehouse…… or it could belong to someone who is clearly unrelated to the Enova Chamber of Commerce, that is, someone who is a victim in this case and in a position of conflict with the Enova Chamber of Commerce, such as Larushiia Trading or the Viscount Yamano family……” (Larushia)
“And no third party, who has nothing to do with this case, would want to touch such a distressed property, no matter how low the price. If they were to sell it, they would have to put it at a tremendous discount.” (Mitsuha)
“But even if I bought such a property, I have no plans to use it. To be clear, this country is not my home base. If I were to buy it, it would be an extension of Larushia Trading, right?” (Mitsuha)
Yes, for me, this was simply a country where one of the member stores of the “International Network of Women Business Owners” was located.
However, due to an incident that I can’t overlook, I have been on a business trip to protect my people and prevent similar incidents from occurring in other countries, and let it be widely known that “we are the ones you should never mess with”.
So I don’t have any special attachment to this country, nor do I intend to build a logistics base here.
The logistics base of the “International Network of Women Business Owners” was Rephilia Trading in the Kingdom of Vanell. They also have recently acquired a large warehouse…….
Well, nominally, it’s supposed to be a huge supply depot on an isolated island in the middle of the ocean.
Otherwise, there’s no way to explain the quick delivery to each country, and if it has to go through some other country, it will be taxed.
I do deliver a small number of Viscount Yamano’s products secretly in transition, but of course, I don’t do that for everything. The member stores of the “International Network of Women Business Owners” handle not only our products but also many other products made in this world.
……As for the amount, that was the majority.
Our products were useful as high-value goods in small quantities and as weapons and instruments of negotiation against aristocrats and merchants.
So the goods that each store handles were usually transported by the merchant corps overland, which was the mainstay of the business. My transition delivery was only a small part of it.
Well, that’s why I don’t need to own a large piece of land or a store in this city.
“Larushia, are you perhaps thinking of settling me in this country?” (Mitsuha)
I knew it…….
Well, I don’t know how I would feel about it.
If I live here, it will be convenient and safe for Larushia in many ways……
But that’s no good.
There were many other “International Network of Women Business Owners” member stores, and I can’t give a special preference for this place.
Rephilia was just lucky.
The Kingdom of Vanell, the country that caused me to get involved in this continent and where I needed to set up my base.
It just so happens that her own family home was in that country and she became my first prey-…… I mean collaborator.
And since I am already based in the Kingdom of Vanell, there’s no need to establish a base in this country without a good reason.
“No one would try to mess with Larushia Trade anymore, so the case was closed.
Of course, if anything else happens, I’ll come flying in right away. So don’t worry.” (Mitsuha)
“……Ye, yes……” (Larushia)
Larushia didn’t really think I would move here either.
……It would have been just a dabble or a one in a million possibility.
Well, I was only “transitioning in whenever I needed to” in this case, it’s not like I stayed here the whole time. I stayed only for a few hours or so each time I needed to do something, and most of my daily time was spent either in the territory or in the Royal Capital of my home country, doing other work.
But, Larushia, who was unaware of this, thought that I had been staying in the city for Larushia all these years. So maybe I got her hopes up a bit.
Since I had done so much for her, risking the days to get to and from this country, the days I stayed must’ve accumulated to be quite the not-so-cheap expenses, maybe I will stay here forever, or something…….
But Larushia, however young she may be, was already an adult in this country and a respectable one at that.
I chose her to be a member of our “International Network of Women Business Owners” and she’s a she-wolf.
So, it’s all right!
Besides, not many people would mess with the Larushia Trade.
The nobles and merchants of each country were naturally aware that I am not on good terms with the Royalty of the Kingdom of Vanell, so they would not think that “Viscount Yamano had a close relationship with the Kingdom of Vanell”.
Then they could either think that they can pull me over to their country and make various plans, or that I am being monopolized by the Kingdom of Vanell and I’m not concerned about profits…
The income from our products may be quite enormous for me and my small store members, but compared to the sales of the big stores, the income of the nobility, and the national budget, it’s still comparable to a small change.
And yet, the nobility and royalty care because they just want good liquor, foodstuffs, and interesting products, and because their wives and daughters pester them for cosmetics, shampoo, sweets, and such.
Well, it’s not something that would be pushed to the point of worsening international relations.
If you attack us, we will fight back with all our might, and if you go along with us normally, you will get the goods.
They should be good friends with the supplier, and it’s impossible to take away the sales channels; if they do it poorly, they will be badly burned or fatally injured.
Yeah, spreading the word about what happened will make other member stores safer.
Then Larushia, who had apparently given up trying to get me to buy the former Enova Chamber of Commerce store, looked at me and muttered.
“You have guided the start-up of many merchants like myself, even though you’re still a minor, have created a multinational commercial network, and have never succumbed to violence or to those in power……
Mitsuha-sama, what in the world are you……” (Larushia)
I have to say that line here, don’t I?
“I am Mitsuha von Yamano. Just an ordinary Viscountess you can see everywhere…” (Mitsuha)
……No, I don’t mean that I’m physically everywhere.
That would make me Yog-Sothoth.
No, it’s not me who’s everywhere, but the “Viscountess” part.
……There are not that many female Viscountesses, right? Or is there?……
“…I demand my reward!” (Sabine)
“I know……” (Mitsuha)
This is my room on the third floor of the General Trade Mitsuha.
Sabine-chan was already in the room, without needing to be called.
And those were the first words of Sabine-chan when I returned.
Right, it’s about the reward for helping me analyze the recorders.
“I told you from the beginning, I’ll give you a reward…. And you can’t demand something crazy.” (Mitsuha)
“Watch the attitude!” (Mitsuha)
Normally, the bad attitude would be transferred from Colette-chan, a commoner, to Sabine-chan, a princess, but this tongue clicking was the opposite, it came from Sabine-chan to Colette-chan.
I must stop any more foul language and attitude from being transferred to the innocent Colette-chan……
“And what is it that you are requesting?” (Mitsuha)
“A motorized vehicle!” (Sabine) (「じどうしゃ！」)
What in the world was this girl talking about?……
If I purchased a used light car, it would not be that expensive, because, in this world, registration procedures and insurance were irrelevant. And if I have it modified so that it doesn’t go faster than 20 km/h and stick cushions all around, I might be able to ensure a lot of safety features.
Well, accidents can still happen even at 20 km / h, but a genius child, Supergirl Sabine, would quickly be better at driving than I am.
“What are you going to do about refueling and maintenance? And to begin with, Sabine-chan, you can’t even reach the pedals, and you’re not tall enough to see what’s in front of you.” (Mitsuha)
Ah! I’ll let Colette duck under my feet and I’ll put a cushion on the seat to elevate my viewpoint. And if I put my foot on Colette’s shoulder and Colette presses the pedals at the same time with my foot on her shoulder, that will work……” (Sabine)
“Where did you get that? [The Life of Don Matsugoro]? Rejecteeeddd!!” (Mitsuha)
One year and 10 months in the making!
Volume 6 of “I’ll Save 80,000 Gold Coins in Another World for My Old Age” book, will be published on July 2! (^^)/
The cover and illustrations were changed by Keisuke Motoe-sansei, the manga artist in charge of the comic book, and the kidnapping, the distress of the warship Eras, the opening of the Gallery Cafe, and the establishment of Refilia Trading, “The Road to Chelsea Terawaros,”… (『チェルシー・テラワロスへの道』)
It’s full of heavenly goods. Let’s go! (^^) /
