364 breastplate

 Our studio is closed on an irregular basis. In our case, indefinite means "I'll take a day off when I'm free or tired.
 Therefore, if someone else says "Let's take a day off", we will take a day off unless we are very busy with the deadline.

 And basically, we are never pressed for time. We don't have a busy season, and Camilo has taken the stance that he doesn't care if we make more or less because he'll only sell what you make, so he won't complain if the next delivery is a single knife. I'm sure they'll complain a lot about ......, though.

 I mean, basically, I should be able to take a day off any time I want, but I've rarely had anyone tell me that. I think Samija has mentioned it once or twice.

 So, for the past two weeks since I was told that Rike would be next, I've spent my time as usual delivering goods, picking up game, tending to the fields, and making small items.
 In other words, that much time has passed while I was somewhat afraid to ask for a vacation.
 It may be called ungrateful, but I didn't want to rush my date with Rike. I'm not in a hurry to go on a date with Ricke. .......

 So, as a new week began, I saw a figure approaching me after finishing my work. It wasn't Rike ......, it was Helen.

Do you have a minute?
I need you to do something for me.
What is it? What is it? - You can ask me almost anything.

 I said, wiping my sweaty face with a towel. It's a family favor. I think ...... I can ask you anything, except for things that will endanger me or someone in my family.

"Well, ...... I want you to make me some armor.

 By the way, Helen's armor was lost during the revolution in the Empire. Anne also brought her sword, but not her armor.
 When I asked her about it later, she said she didn't know. She said she didn't know. The armor was ordinary, so it must have been thrown away.

Are you going back to being a mercenary?
"...... No.

 Helen nodded her head. There is a pause.

It's a job that could disappear at any moment, but it's been a while and I wanted to let some people know I'm okay.
"I see.

 I see." He may be saying that it is not safe to go that way with only a sword and no armor. That's understandable.

"Shall we go full plate?
"You can't walk well with that. Oh, you can lend me your Krull.
No, you can't. It'll make your mother sad.

 Helen and I laugh at each other.

So, what do you want? If you really want a full plate, that's fine.

 We don't plan to make it as a product of our company at the moment, because it would take too much time and effort to make a large number of them, but if it's to be worn by my family, I'm willing to pay the price. However, if it's to be worn by my family, I'm not afraid to put an elaborately crafted helm on the full plate.

"Yes, .......

 Helen put her hand on her gargle and pondered seriously. In the event that you're going to return to mercenary work, you'll probably be traveling long distances anyway, so you don't want anything too heavy.

Thoracic armor, armor, and maybe shin guards. ......
What's the coverage?
The chest and arms should be tight, the shins moderate.
Hmm. And the belly?
Belly. ......

 Helen thinks again. She's looking up at the heavens, so she's probably thinking about what the situation might be.
 In the previous version, the belly area was not covered with steel. I wonder if they were emphasizing movement and thinking, "If it doesn't hit me, it's nothing to worry about.

I don't care about the belly. Just the chest, like Deanna's.
"Okay. Both breasts? Or just the left one like before?
Both breasts, please. It used to have both, but it broke and when they fixed it, they left one of them alone. It was still good, so I just kept it.
Is that so?

 The hidden story of "Xun-Lightning" may not be worthy of ......, but there was a reason for it, wasn't there?
 Now, there remains the biggest obstacle to its production. I suppose I could do it, but I'm afraid to do it when I don't have the means.

I'll leave the ...... measurement to Rike.

 When I told him the solution to the biggest barrier, his answer came back with a hard punch to the shoulder.
