70 Completion and education?

 The next day, as Samija had said, it was still raining. Still, the rain seemed to be weaker than yesterday. We went to get some water, but it was not as wet as yesterday.
Hopefully, it will stop tomorrow.
"I hope so. I can't do my laundry.
 That's right, I haven't done laundry for the past three days, so I've got a lot of laundry to do. Fortunately, each of us has a change of underwear for the next five days, so we're okay, but if it doesn't stop tomorrow, we'll be in trouble. We can only pray for this.

 Today, I'll be working on the halberd, and Rike and the others will be working on the general model. Samija and Deanna seem to be getting better and better at it. At this rate, I may not have to help with the general models. In fact, they made a good number of them yesterday. This way I can concentrate on my own work.

 As it turned out, I was able to make two halberd heads and a pebble head this day. The work itself is no different from what I did yesterday. The work itself is no different from the work I did yesterday, except that it requires much more work than knives. Even if I were to reduce the quality to that of a general model, mass production would be impossible. It's too much work to have Rike and his team make it. ....... If that's the case, a spear might be a better choice.
 I had some free time, so I used it to restock the arrowheads. When the rain comes back tomorrow, Samija and Diana will go out to gather or hunt. Our meat stock is getting low. I'm confident I can last a week or so, even two if I'm stingy, but that would be a bit sad. We don't know if we'll get another long rain. I'll ask him to go and replenish.

 The next day, just as Samija had said, the rain had stopped. When I went outside, I found that there were still puddles of water here and there. Still, the morning sun was beginning to rise, turning the world a golden color, and with the shadows of the trees in the forest, the scene looked like a painting. There is a saying that the early bird gets the worm.
 When I came back from fetching water, I started to wash, but there was a lot of laundry to do today. It was not going to be finished soon, and the water seemed to be used more than usual, so I had to go back to fetch water again. I'm not much help with the laundry. Although it's not as s*xy as in the previous world, I still refrain from participating in the washing of women's underwear because it makes me feel uncomfortable even if they don't mind. As for the division of household chores, I am in charge of meals, so please forgive me.

 After a rather late breakfast, Samija and Diana went out to hunt. Samija was in an unusually good mood, apparently happy to have her arrowhead replenished. I asked Lique. What kind of girl's heart is that?

 Today's work for the forge crew was to continue with the halberd for me, and to make a general model knife for Rike. This was originally something that Samija and Deanna couldn't help much with.
 Both of us are working on forging, so the sound of hammering echoes through the workshop. Because they are working on different things, the sound is a little different. It's like two people playing different sized instruments, and it's kind of fun.

 While I'm working, I look at the knives that Rike has made, and I can see that his skills are slowly improving. There is much less variation than before. I wish I could say, "You can hear the voice of iron now, too? ......", but unfortunately I'm using cheats to do that, so I don't really know. So the only way to learn is to "watch and learn" by observing what I see and how I hit.
 Since he showed me Rike's knives, I'm going to ask him to observe the production of the high-end halberds. The first one has already been made, so this will be the second one today. It's a combination of a spear, an axe, and a pick, so hopefully he'll learn how I make each of them and how I combine them.

What do you think?
 I give him the finished halberd head. Rike took it and looked at it carefully.
"The individual parts are perfect, but the joints are amazing as well. It looks like it was originally one piece.
 As usual, he began his evaluation. I was relieved to see that the quality of the work was good enough to show to Rike.
"So, do you think you've got something?
"Yes. I don't think I'll be able to catch up with the master, but I have a few more things I want to try.
That's good. I'd like to teach you, but I can't explain.
I'd like to teach you, but I don't know how to explain. You're too kind.
If there's any more work you want to see, don't hesitate to ask.
"Yes, sir. I'll do my best!
 "Yes, sir. I'll do my best!" Rieko said, her eyes burning with determination.

 Well, it's not raining today, so let's finish the halberd. I'll grab some lumber from outside and make five 2-meter long sticks. I've often thought that it's a cheat to be able to make accurate and beautiful sticks with a custom-made knife and a cheat, and it doesn't take much time.
 After attaching a halberd head and a peg to each end of the stick, the halberd is finally complete. I'd like to try it out, but there's no way I can swing a two-meter-long thing around in the workshop. I decided to go outside and see how it felt when I swung it.

 In a little while, the sun, which had painted the world gold in the morning, would now paint it orange. But for a little while longer, the sky would still be blue. In the midst of all this, I try to simply swing my two-meter halberd at an enemy who is not there, or spear him, or axe him, or pick him off his feet. The pick and the axe are well balanced, and the balance between the head and the pike is not bad. The balance between the head and the pike is not bad. If you can use it properly, it will be more useful than a single short spear.
 I repeated the movements several times for a while, and when the sun was about to finish its work for the day, I also finished my "test swing" work. Then I heard three clapping sounds.

Hey, you're back with Samija and Deanna?
Yeah, long time ago. I'm home.
I'm back. I didn't know Eizo could handle a halberd.
Welcome back, both of you. I'm as good as I look.
 I don't think I can move better than a longsword, but when I'm using a longsword, I seem to be super strong, so if Deanna says so, then I guess I'm pretty strong with a halberd. I think I'll make a couple of custom models for my home defense.
I'll make a couple of custom models for my home defense. What did Samija and Deanna get today?
Oh yeah, listen to me! Today. ......
 And with that, we went back inside the house.
