324 Order details

"In return, you only get one shot at this kind of thing.

 I said with a frown on my face. If it was a hassle to begin with, I would have been involved by now when Anne came to .......
 In fact, I'd like to leave a written document, but even if I did, there's no one who can vouch for the contents (and if I let Camilo do it, he's just a merchant), so there's no point.

I'm sorry, but I appreciate it.

 Marius said with a troubled look on his face. I guess it's no different for middle managers in the old world than it is here. I'll keep that in mind.

"Hmm. I don't want you to get bent out of shape by being too reckless.

 The Marquis makes a face that's as sullen as mine. The Marquis, who makes a face as sullen as mine, must have had an experience of asking some craftsman to do something and being bent over. The scowl seems to be a reminder of that rather than something directed at me. It seems that the stubbornness of the craftsman is the same in the old world as it is here.
 To tell the truth, it's almost impossible for me to emigrate from the Kuro Forest, but if the Marquis doesn't know that, he's probably calculating that it would be a loss if I were to run away to the Empire for being too reckless.
 For now, it is better to go along with that calculation. I don't even know if I'll be able to meet someone like Camilo in the future.

"So, what's the delivery date and the price?
"Yes, .......

 It was the Marquis who pondered my words. The Marquis is probably doing all the planning. I'm sure he's a good guy too, if it weren't for the politics involved. .......

I'd like to see it as soon as possible, but when can you do it?
Yes, ......3 in a day.

 If you order four of them, the decorations will be a non-issue. If you order exactly the same thing, it would be better to have no extra decoration, because it would be harder to distinguish.
 Then, even if you consider that it will take some time, three days is enough to work on it. I have nothing but bad memories of being called ASAP in my previous world, but in this world, it's better. ...... better, right?

Is it that fast?
Yes, well.

 The Marquis could not hide his surprise at my words and raised one eyebrow.
 I'm not sure what to say. No, it might have been a waste of time, since I've already delivered 50 of them in a week, even though they were general models. I'll take that as a yes.

"Hmm, ......, then I'll pay you 15 gold coins per bottle.
"What? No, fugafugga.

 I thought 15 gold coins was too much for a spear that was not much, even if it was a custom-made one, and I wanted to say 10 gold coins would be fine, but hands reached out from both sides and blocked my mouth.
 The total cost was 60 gold coins. If you think that includes the hush money, it's a decent amount .......

"Then, will you bring the goods to the capital in four days?
To the capital?

 What's going to happen in the capital? He says he won't get into any trouble, so I hope he'll just deliver the goods.

I'll send a carriage. We'll take you and the princess to the capital.
"And Anne?

 Camilo nodded. It's all pretty much set. We'll move forward when my spear is ready.

All right. I don't think you should take my family to .......

 Seeing the look on Marius' face, I say so. There are some things you don't want to show, even if it's mostly just the delivery.
 Deanna seemed to be unhappy with my words, but I soothed her with a gesture.

 Anyway, that's it for now. I stood up and shook hands with the Marquis and Marius. Well, let's get on with it.
