215 back out of town

 When we got home, we carried in our luggage as usual. It was the first time in a long time that Krull was able to pull the cart for a long distance, and he was in a good mood.
 Since we had one more person to help us today, we were able to split up and finish in no time.
 We also got some bedding, so we moved it into one of the new rooms, and Helen's room will be there.
 Helen's personal belongings will be taken care of by the basic personal items that we procured today. The rest will be taken care of later.
 As for the clothes, it was decided that Deanna's clothes, which "my brother brought a lot of things from home," would be worn as they were at first, and that they would be altered in time.

The day we go to town, we're supposed to have free time when we get back. Helen is free to do as she pleases.
Is that so?

 I nodded. I nodded, though there wasn't much I could do about it.

I'm going to check on the dragon.

 Helen said in a manner that sounded like she was onomatopoeia. She had been wondering about it for a long time.

I'll come with you.

 Deanna heard her and raised her hand. I'm sure she'll be fine.

I'm sure it's nothing, but be careful.

 They nodded and walked out. I called out to their backs.

"Oh, yeah, Deanna, you're going to have to get Helen to teach you in the evenings.
Is that okay?

 Deanna looked back at me and her eyes were wide. It's not that Helen's skill was bad, even though she got caught. At least she was stronger than me in a one-on-one match.
 I think this will be a good practice for Helen to regain her confidence.

Yeah. I've talked to Helen about it.

 I told Helen about it on the way back from the Empire. She was a little reluctant at first, but when I asked her, she nodded surprisingly easily.
 When Katerina heard about it, she seemed to envy me, saying, "It's not fair to be a lady.

I'll see you later.
I'm not going to go easy on you.
That's what I want.
I don't want you to get hurt.

 I called out to them as I followed them out, cackling. But from the looks of it, I'm not sure how much of it got through. .......
 In the future, I would welcome, but not deny, an increase in our strength.
 The fact that there are only women in the world, and that we have to rely on them to do all the work, raises the question of my old-fashioned, ex-terrestrial notions.

"Only women, huh?

 As I walked into the forge to do a little work, I suddenly thought to myself.
 I've wondered about this before, but apart from me, there are no men in my house. Krull seems to be a female. I wondered if I would meet so many women after spending so much time with no particular choice.
 No, I have met men like Marius, Camilo, and Sandro's father, but so far there are no men who would come to my house.
 It's also true that men of a certain age in this world basically have regular jobs, so it's not a requirement for them to come to my house.
 If you think about it, it's not so strange that only women come to our house. ....... Isn't that too many?

 I glanced at the altar. The smiling face of the enshrined statue of the goddess seemed to be meaningful, even though I had carved it myself.
