Chapter 28: When the flower bloom
When I brought Fricka and Fin back to the base, Fin raised her voice and looked around curiously. Is it’s because it’s a mostly flat area with only a few trees around?
Fricka looked at the altar and the arranged flower bed and muttered in admiration.
“It’s much more splendid than the one in Alness Village.”
“Well I’m a miko, right? And It’s still not enough.”
As for Fin, because Fricka was with her and she could get away from the scary person(Father), it seems that there were no complaints about moving. It almost made my eyes wet.
I she not afraid seeing Uru? I was worried about it, but she said “She is not scary at all compared to my father.”…That’s a place to be relieved about or grieve, that’s point to worry about.
However, sometimes she will look at me suspiciously while clinging to Fricka… It’s okay, I won’t take her from you… I’m a little worried about the future.
“It seems that there are various things in the surroundings. … All of them were made by Rion-sama?”
“Uru sometimes helped me gather materials, but well, I made them all.”
…Uru-san can’t make things yet ……. Hearing my explanation she groaned a “Gununu” and showed her frustration..
Well, first of all, let’s have breakfast.
“It’s tastier than onee-chan’s food!”
“… Hey, Fin…!”
It’s easy to tame a small child, just by giving her delicious food, she easily looked at me with a look of respect…… I’m a bit worried about her future.
If it was Fricka who made her food, it doesn’t seems to have a sad fact lurking about like how she wasn’t actually been fed properly.
When I was watching her eating with the same momentum as Uru (of course, the speed at which the food was decreasing was different), Fricka stared at me with a determined expression and with a slightly red cheeks.
“Rion-sama……Is it possible for you to teach me how to cook……?”
“It’s okay, but I didn’t do anything special?”
I don’t make anything special except when I use the making skill to quickly create something.
I tried eating her cooking later, but it tasted normal, she didn’t had a mysterious talent to make the food taste bad or something like that. By the way, In Uru’s case let alone making it, even the steps before It is a problem.
And like that, when I teached her, she properly absorbed the knowledge, and after a while, she will be able to cook even dishes with buffs.
After the meal, I guide them while taking care of the base.
They were particularly surprised at the part where work was automated with magic stones… I wonder if everyone doesn’t use them that much?
“There is nothing like that in Alness Village… Though there may be something in the others elder’s house except for great-grandfather-sama and grandfather-sama.”
They had a monopoly on medicine. It wouldn’t be strange if they had a monopoly on other technologies. ……Well, it wouldn’t be strange if the technology Itself was lost though.
“It’s not that difficult as a mechanism, so it’s up to your imagination how to use, this thing.”
“I see… As expected.”
……Even though it was the result of the efforts of many players, I who was praised. Unuuu.
With hope that they would be interested in making things, so I briefly explain the contents of the workshop.
Crafting, alchemy, blacksmithing… Almost anything other than cooking and special things can be done here. …… Well, the blacksmithing part is still just the equipment and the ores are still lacking though!
Ah, maybe it’s time to expand the alchemy facilities? If that’s the case, I’m going to need that item… I wonder if I can find the materials?
A simple work that even the two can do… No, before that I have to prepare a room for them. For the time being, let’s have them use the guest room, about the furniture, let’s ask to them later.
Fricka says she wants to cook, so I want to expand the kitchen, and also the dining room… Hmm, I’d rather use the entire building to set up a communal area, and build a separate lodging building in other place.
“Ah, hmm… Rion-sama…?”
“Leave her alone, it’s already at the level of a sickness. She even forget my existence sometimes.”
After a while, I returned to my senses, and after leaving a dry laugh, I continued the guidance.
Fin’s next interest was, unexpectedly, the ranch plot. She looks around at the cow from various angles and fearfully tries to touch the chickens.
Our animals are courageous(?) beings that don’t even fear even Uru-san, so they won’t run away with just like that.
“Didn’t you guys hadn’t livestock in Alness Village?”
“Of course, we are doing it, but… We got scolded saying ‘Don’t go to such a filthy place!’, so Fin should see them for the first time.”
…… It make me want to say, where do you think that the eggs, meat, and dairy products you eat come from? No thinking again, I don’t want to see him again.
Fin was also surprised at how spacious farm plot that the crops were planted is. …As you can imagine, this is also the first time that she seen it.
Hmmm… Anyway, I have to let her learn some work, so letting her experience is also one option.
“Hey Fin, if you don’t mind, would you like to take care of the fields and the animals?”
“It’s okay, it’s not that difficult. I’ll do it with you.”
I don’t know how it was in Japan, but in Asteria they can grow up in a rather rough way. Well, If you want to raise the quality of the product, you have to put effort and love into it.
Was she still worried about my suggestion? Fin looked up at Fricka with an uneasy face. But Fricka nodded with a smile.
“Well then… Please.”
“Yeah, let’s do our best”
I carelessly stroked her head, but Fin didn’t show any signs of reluctance.
After lunch, probably because she became tired, Fin was taking a nap. And on the contrary, Uru said that she didn’t move enough, and with a “I’m going to exercise a little.” she left. In Alness Village, worrying about what would happen if we acted separately, we acted almost always in group, but now that we are in the base, there’s no need to worry about what will happen to us.
Fricka seems to have taken an interest in alchemy and workmanship in addition to cooking. In addition, about that and this about the holy attribute. …… Well, I guess she still have some regrets. First, let’s take care of the flower bed while briefly explaining about the sacred flowers.
And just when I thought it was time to take a break, Fricka spoke to me with a solemn face.
“Hmm? Was there anything you didn’t understand?”
Fricka suddenly straightened her posture… And then kneeled down.
Ugh, I have a bad feeling about this.
“I was…Not only my body, but even my heart has been saved by you. Therefore, I intend to dedicate my body and soul to your sake for the rest of my life.”
Again… I unintentionally covered my face.
No, yeah, I’m happy that you think so, okay? I’m happy, but… For some reason, I feel something’s wrong with that kind of relationship.
Did Fricka notice my worries?
“I’m sorry. Let me rephrase it again.”
Was she putting it in a more mild way, I thought so――But she dropped a even bigger bomb.
“Rion-sama, I love you. That’s why I want to stay by your side until I die.”
……That means, in others words…….
My voice, that was shaking so much because my train of thought was broken, must have sounded quite stupid.
I looked at the person who destroyed it with a blank face, but her expression was extremely serious, and there was no sign that she was joking. No, she had never made the joke before.
……Was she too serious or is it natural for her to say that, she doesn’t even blush. Rather, my cheeks that were getting hotter when I understood what I was told.
No, it’s been 20 years since I was born, but I’ve never been confessed to…! I just don’t have immunity to such thing …!
My heart is pounding, I don’t know how to answer, and even if I try to figure it out, my head is chaotic, like it’s being stirred by a juicer, the words won’t come out.
When I was just moving my hands meaninglessly and freaking out, she smiled wryly and added to it.
“I’m just expressing my intentions and not saying to take me as your bride right now, so please take your time to think about it. Of course, you can refuse.”
“Eh, ah, yes…”
I feel like I’m being a little bad, but I was a little relieved by those words.
Because… Is that, you know? I like her, but if I was asked if I want to marry her, putting aside about our genders…… I can’t just say NO in a snap, but I too can’t say YES either. Sorry for being indecisive!
Or should I say, going past being lover and direct to the marrying… No, I’m not saying it’s OK at the lovers stage! A trial? Hahaha, no way that I can do such a skillful thing…
“In addition, I would like to say.”
Fricka turned her gaze to somewhere.
“It’s okay even if I’m the ‘second one’.”
The second one means that there is the first one.
I knew immediately who she was talking about. In the first place, there is only one candidate.
“Um, I don’t have that kind of relationship with Uru…”
“But the person you trust the most is Uru-san, right?”
“That’s… That’s right.”
“It’s not like I want to be the number one. I don’t want to kick that person down, nor do I want to look down on her. In the first place, there is a part of me that admires the interaction between Rion-sama and Uru-san, so while valuing that, I would like to build a good relationship in the same way.”
Fricka closed her eyes quietly, took a few breaths, and opened her eyes again.
“…In the end, I would like to do my best so that you can love me even if a little.”
Like a flower blooming, It was the most gentle smile I have ever seen.
