164 decide on the next schedule

 We got to talking, and I told him to come back in a couple of weeks for the next installment.
Speaking of which, how's the suspension development going?
"Yeah. Nothing has happened so far that we need your help. We should have a prototype by now.
That's good. I'll only be here once every two weeks, but if you need anything, don't hesitate to ask.
All right. I'm sorry.
It's okay.
 With that, we left the business meeting room and went back to Krull.

 We tipped the boy who had been watching Krull, retied Krull to the cart, and set off. I walked slowly through the city, barked at the guards, and left the city.
 Before the arrival of Krull, we sometimes stayed past the changing time of the guards, but after the arrival of Krull, we arrived earlier and left earlier. Although we have only been here twice, we have been able to leave town much earlier than the changing of the guards.
 I can't thank Krull enough for this. Thanks to Krull, I'll have enough time to get home.

 Krull's chariot moves along the road under a rather heavy sky. It was the usual scene of a leisurely street.
"Wasn't this where Nilda came out before?
"That's right.
 "That's right.
"Let's hope nothing comes up today.
We'll have to be careful.
 Even now, Samija and Deanna are keeping a watchful eye on their surroundings. I'm not letting my guard down either, I'm keeping an eye out for any strange activity or signs of life in the area. Liddy is not on martial arts alert, but he is on magical alert.
 In this world, it seems that only those who have a certain amount of magical power and have been trained can use magic, so the absolute number of people who can use magic is small, but even so, there is no guarantee that thieves will not use it. After all, there are blacksmiths who can use magic.

 But in the end, nothing happened on the road that day. Probably because there are still more guards patrolling the streets, searching for bandits and guarding the area. It is ironic that the security is getting better as a result.
 I look around and enter the forest. The dragon car makes a loud noise, so it is usually safer to enter the forest from here, since only curious animals can approach it, but now bears are wandering around the neighborhood, so we have to be careful.
 Although I rely on Krull and Saamya's senses, I trust them both to be perceptive, so I'll continue to be on the lookout with their vigilance, my eyesight and Diana's, and Liddy's magical vigilance.
 Aside from the occasional raccoon-like creature that appeared in the forest, nothing happened and we made it home safely.

 It's been a while since I started this life, but I can't shake the feeling that I'm being overly cautious every time. In my previous world, I was in a country that was quite safe by world standards, so I have been in the habit of thinking in that sense.
 In any case, I've been living with that feeling for 40 years, and there's no way I can get rid of it in a few months or so. I hope this will change in the course of my second life.

 I arrived home and cleaned up the mess. Krull seems to be in a good mood because he can pull the cart. Even without his brace, he was still running around.
 After returning home, we are supposed to spend our time as we please, but today we are having a meeting ...... to discuss our future plans.

I think we need a warehouse. I think we're going to need a warehouse soon.
 That's the first thing I said.
You're right. If we start harvesting crops in the future, we'll need it.
We want to store as much coal and ironstone as possible.
 Deanna and Rique seemed to agree.
I also think it's better to have a separate space for storing leather and meat from the house.
"I don't disagree. I don't disagree. I don't think we'll have a big harvest, but I don't think it's possible to store everything here.
 Samija and Liddy had no objections either.
So tomorrow we'll start building the two warehouses.
 When I said that.
"Are you sure you don't want to add a room?
 Samija mixes it up, to which I reply with a scowl.
We don't have any plans to add to our family, so I guess we don't need it.
Are you sure?
 Deanna gives me a look of complete disbelief. Not only Samija, but also Rike and Liddy.
It's true!
 I shouted, but the women said.
"Well, let's make it when we can afford it.
"Yeah, that's a good idea.
"No objections!
 "No objection!
